(Special to The Evening News.)
WASHINGTON, Aug. 18 Speak
ing on the wool bill, Congressman
James, of Kentucky, scored President
Taft in bitterest terms today for his
attitude on the tariff question, and
said: "Tart will go down in history
as the president who placed his pon
derous corporosity in the path of ser
vice to the people, and he will also
go down In history as the one man
who vetoed the will of the American
people." Juiues accused Taft of be
traying the peoples interests by
blocking the effort to revlce the tariff
Wiley's Sensational Testimony.
. WASHINGTON. Aug. 18. Dr. Wi
ley, testifying before the investigation
committee today, cited several in
stances where bulletins prepared by
him for the benefit and information
of the people had been suppressed on
the objection of Solicitor McCabe,
who would not permit the publica
tion of the bulletins on British food
laws, or American food laws, and oth
ers. Wiley said that there are thousands
of vases where manufacturers use ad
ulterants, but that he Was given no
chance to prosecute them, owing to
official opposition. He then created a
. panic by offering to take one law offi
cer and a stenographer and do all the
,work of the solicitor's office at a

A W-W-W Guaranteed Ring in a

birthstone should give the matter a llttel thought. Blrthatones ate
the one Ideal gift.

ceiving the beat that Is made. You fully realize that you are giving
and receiving the only ring In the world that will not annoy the
wearer by the stones coming out.
In case a stone should come out It is replaced absolutely free

tised In the Saturday Evening Post and other magazines are for
for sale here in our store, and can be had at the same price that
an Inferior ring Is sold for.

the big 10-inch guns commanding the
entrance to the Columbia river, and
in the target practice with the big
guns Tuesday they made nine hits
out of ten shots at 2,000 yards, which
was the best record made by any
company of guardsmen. In the bat
tle of Monday Company D was placed
in the most responsible position, be
ing the advance guard, and the second
platoon, under Lieutenant Buchanan,
fired the first shot and brought on
the engagement. The company bore
the brunt of the fighting on the part
of the defenders of the fort and alt.
except the first lieutenant and six
men, were captured by the enemy.
Those new to the game were given a
splendid example of what an actual
battle would be in war time. The
companyis seriously considering the
proposition of being transferred from
the militia to. the coast art 1 1 ley, and
that will undoubtedly be the final de
termination. " The government is anx
ious to have several more companies
of coast artillery, so as to properly
man the coast defenses in case of war.
The Drain state bank today filed

fendant money on a promissory note,
and to date have been unable to col
lect any part of the specified amounts.
Other than principal and interest the
plaintiffs ask for attorney fees as well
as the costs and disbursements in
curred in bringing the action.

for all time. According to the story
related by l.eo Itnpp upon his return
here this noon, the boys were hunt
ing along the old Looking Glass road,
two miles south of town, when the
shells in Huffman's gun failed to re
spond. Falling in his attempt to re
move the shells and thus determine
the cause of the difficulty, Huffman
handed the gun to Kapp. who Im
mediately set to work In an effort to
eject the shells. He had thrown a
number of them from the magazine.
when Huffman remarked, "That is
II of them." An Instant later Huff
man walked iu front of Rapp, pre
sumably unaware that the latter was
snapping the trigger to ascertain
whether the gun was empty. As he
readied a point about five feet from
the muzzle of the gun the shell in the
chamber suddenly discharged and
Huffman fell to the ground. An ugly
wound in the ankle showed the hor
rible accident that had been enacted.
The gun which Huffman carried
belonged to his grandfather, L. D.
Carle, while the gun in the hands of
Rapp wns the property of his father.
The elder Mr. Rapp informed a News
representative this afternoon that he
warned the hoys against miming. tiiu

pronounced as purely accidental, and
no blame is attached to Leo Rapp.
