Washington, D. C, My 8--The Navy
Department hat come to the concluiion
that something mut be done without de
lay to protect a large quantity of valuable
material, consisting mostly of copper pipe,
now stored in the open at the Navy
Yard at Brooklyn. The commandant of
the yard has sent a special report to
to Washington, complaining that he has
not the facilities to properly protect this
material from thieves. It is thought that
word must have been passed among
people of that class that the material was
accessible, and there have been a num
ber of thefts, with as many more excit
ing pursuits of the thieves. Recently a
marine oflcer was accidentally wounded
APPLES KILLED BY (OLD
"The apple crop of the Rosetta and
Melrose sections was badly damaged by
the cold enap in March. The trees will
not return one-tenth of an average yield."
This statement was made yesterday by
Deputy State Horticultural Inspector
Mohl, who was in the city from his farm
on the reservation. Mr. Mohl states
that while it was impossible, immediately
- following tne ireeze, 10 uouniniua u,
tent of the loss, the condition of the trees
is now such as to leave no doubt as to
the extent of the damage. He has not
visited the orchards on the Nez Perce
prairie since the cold snap occured. but
will leave for that section Monday to in-
' vestigat conditions relative to apple scab
and codlin moth. ' . . . '
' Mr Mohi's visit to the district east of
t Lewiston has convinced him the country
it in need of heavy showers. Lewiston

by the discharge of his revolver while
chasing persons who had designs upon
the material, and some fame ago one of
the sentries killed a man who was caught
carrying off valuable piping. It was
recommended by the Secretary, on the
strength of report from Brooklyn, that a
large building, to cost $100,000 and to be
used as a coppersrr ith s seep should be
erected at the yard, but the House Naval
Committee, which has been considering
the estimates, cut down this item. It is
now considered important to furnish a
storage place to be 'built of steel of
dimensions sufficient to take care of
material of this kind, and not leave it as
an invitation to thieves. It is estimated
that such a building would cost $20,000.
NO WEST POINT SHARPSHOOTERS
West Point, N. Y., May 8 General
A. L. Mills, superintendent of the Military
Acadamy. hat decided there shall be no
rifle practice among the cadets outside
of the routine work in that line. It was
hoped that this year the cadets would be
represented by a team of the national
match at Seagist in September, and the
marksmen who form the team at the
Naval Academy haa nopou limy wuuiu
have an opportunity to shoot in competi
tion with the West Pointers on May 26,
when the academies have thier baseball
game at West Point. General Mills, how
ever, finds that it would take much time
to get the cadets into condition for com
petitive work with visiting teams. He
thinks the time can more profitably be
used in the work of the institution and he
does not see the necessity of making rifle
practice part of the athletic training, as
is the case in Annapolis.

When Chairman C. E. Cochran called
the county Centaal Committee meeting
to order this afternoon and directed
Secretary U. O. Couch to call the roll
nearly every precinct responded, together
with the candidates and quite a numDer
of visiting Repuplicans, a sconce was
presented that would certainly have
struck terror to every Democratic candid
ate could they have been permitted to
have viewed the harmonious and enthus
iasm determination of all present to elect
the entire ticket from top to bottom.
A general campaign was outlined and
a few dayt every precinc:
in the county will know that the Repub
licans have there harness all rigged out
for a long pull, a strong pull and a puli
altogether, and when the vote is counted
there will be none on the ticket fund
missing. The committee is still in session
as we cloee our forms.

STEALS FALSE TEETH FOR GOLD
Tacoma, Wash., May, 8. Tacoma
claims to have one of the meanest men in
the state of Washington. Mrs. Ida A
Ableson hat been granted a divorce from
her husband, Simon, who she alleged b r
rowed money to get the marriage license
when they were married foui years ago.
and who, when he deserted her a short
time ago, borrowed all the money she had
and then stole her false teeth to get a
small amount of gold from the plates.
Because you twore at the primary
election does not give you the privilege of
voting at tht regular election, and if you
have not registered, you will be obliged to
swear in your vote again at the general
election if you do not register on or before
Mav 15th. Remember the registration
books close May 16th.

It requires 194 solid trains of fou rtv cars each to carr the produce of oun A
