DON'T RUSH TO MINIDOKA LAND
Pumping Problom for Irrigation Has
Not Been Solvod.
Washington, April 7. Tho attention
of the director of tho geological sur
vey hns been called to tho fact that a
misapprehension exists on tlto part of
certain citizens of Idaho as to tho plans
of tho reclamation scrvico in regard to
soino important details relating to tho
Minidoka project. TIiIb misunder
standing has arisen, it is believed, by
reason of tho efforts of many settlors to
anticipate tho plans of tho engineers
and secure choice holdings of land.
The government from tho first has
warned intending settlors to go slow in
making entries on tho lands embraced
in tills project, and has called particu
lar attention to tho fact that tho plans
for Irrigation, especially those involv
ing tho pumping plant, woro merely
tentative, and could not bo worked out
as quickly as those for tho gravity sys
tem, While nothing has arisen to pre
vent tho ultimato development of a
pumping plant, so many delicato en
gineering features nro Involved that
careful consideration must bo given to
these before any definite conclusions
are reached or the final plans nro ap
proved. Thus, apparently, while no reason
oxists for believing that tho pumping
features of tho Minklokn project will
not ultimately bo utilized, tho engineers
very wisely havo concluded to glvo this
question more study and consideration
before recommending it for construc
tion. YAQUIS ARE SPREADING TERROR
Murdor nnd Plllngo Mark Tholr Trail
Kl Paso, Tex., April 0. John St.
Clair, a well known prospector, whoee
statements are considered reliable, has
returned from tho Yaqul country near
Ures, Sonora, and reports that tho In

says that Malpuche, tho old chief, is
at tho head of a baud of over 50 and is
devastating tho whole country, mur

Tho whole country is in n state of

towns have been abandoned and pro

tho country Ib overrun with soldiers,
ho says, tho IndlaiiB atu fearless and

Results of Earthquake In India Worse
Than First Reported.
Lahore, llrltlsh India, April 7. As
tho particulars filter in from tho outly
ing districts, it is being revealed that
tho casualties caused by thecarthquako
of two days ago have been under, rather
than over-estimated. Inonospot nlono
at Dhamala, it is reported that fully
1,400 natives havo been killed or in
jured. Of tho injured many will dlo.
Seven of the Luropenns previously re
ported hurt have since diet, and two
others are in a diug condition.
There is not a house left in tho vicin
ity that does not show evidence of thu
trembling of the earth.
This is tho report from one district
alone, and as authentic information
comes in it seems certain that the mag
nitude of the disaster will be eulllcient
to stir tho entire world when fully re
vealed, Tho Indian government is making
arrangements to rellee all distress us
soon as ossihlo.
Whiskey Under Other Names.
Rockland, Me., April 7. A whole,
sale grocery store here owned by Gov
ernor William Cobb and oth th was
raided today by the sheriff and depu
ties and a large stock of a patent medi
cine said to contain n high percentage
of alcohol was wired on tho ground
that offering the preparation for sale is
in violation of the Maine prohibition
laws. In addition, the sheriff seized
thu entire stock of the city agency.
The charge is made thnt the city of
Rockland has been engaging in tho sale
of liquor in violation of state law.
Forest Fire on South Mountains,
Gettysburg, Pa., April 7. Forest
fires burning over an area of thousands
of acres have started lit tho South

CZAR IS IN DANGER
Dynamite is Found Hidden In
SECRET POLICE WERE IN PLOT
Twolve Members Arrested nnd Placed
In Dungeon Chance Loads to
Discovery of Explosive.
St. Petersburg, April 0. At last tho

tho cordon of guards about tho crar,

tho palaco Itself, and as n result there
Is a feeling of apprehension among all
of thu high ofllclala and tho guards
about his majcaty havo been trebled.
Lato yesterday afternoon, as the
guard at tho palaco was being changed,
Lieutenant Colonel Shirnupsky, who
was in command, noticed that one of
tho Cossacka who had been posted at
tho main door was wearing tho sword
of an infantry officer, and not tho sabre
of a Cossack. Ho thereupon called n
corporal and placed thu man under ar
rest. He was at once searched and In
criminating documents were found on
Search of tho palaco revealed two
packages of dynamite, placed against
tho main door of tho imperial suito, in
a dark corner where they woro not
likely to be noticed.
A searching inquiry was at ouco in
stituted, with tho result that 12 secret
pollco agents were arrested as decom
piles, and all were hurried to tho Peter
and Paul fortress, whore they were
interviewed by General Trepoff.
Tho fact that tho terrorists have suc
ceeded in corrupting meinbers of thu
secret police and soldiers has caused
much alarm, and another attempt
against a high olllcial is looked for.

EASTERN CITY ELECTIONS.
Democrats Carry in St. Louis, Chica
go, Colorado and Kansas.
Chicago, April C. A olltical tor
nado yesterday overwhelmed one of tho
most ruggedly unique leaders in thu
country. Incidentally the Republican
party met defeat in a memorable effort
to capture tho mayoralty of Chicago.
As a direct result tho city is officially
committed to the policy of tho quickest
possible cessation of private franchises
for public utilities. Municipal owner
ship ia especially threatening street car
lines valued high up in tho millions.
After winning successively four re
markablo blcnntnl fighta of independ
ents against tho regular Republican or
ganizatlon here, John Mnynard Harlan,
son of Associate Justice Harlan, of tho
Supremo court of tho United States,
was a loser as Republican candidate
for mayor. The defeat is attributed to
an extraordinary whirl of causes start
ing with political revenge and taking
in a wide sweep, embracing tho most
up-to-date Socialism as a factor. The
victor is Judgo Edward F. Dunne,
Welts Ahead in St. Louts.

Denver, April B. A Democratic
landslide struck Colorado, where mu
nicipal elections were hold yesterday in
all cities and towns excepting Denver.
In Pueblo, Colorado Springs and Lead
vlllo, normally Republican, the Demo
cratlu tickets were successful, In thu
latter case for tho first time iu 20 years.
In tho smaller townc, where party
lines were drawn, tho "Democrats won,
tho notable exceptions 'being Cripple

HOPE ALL FROM ROJESTVENSKY
Russians Expoct Change of Fortune
Whon Flout Moots Togo.
fit. Petersburg, April B. The an
nouncement that President Roosevelt
has left Washington on a vacation trip
is accepted here as evidence that thu
efforts to draw Russia and Japan into
peace negotiations have come to grief
for tho moment. No definite explana
tion of exactly what happened is forth
coming, but tho general Impression is
thnt Japan either declined to treat upon
tho Russian basis or demanded a direct
avowal that there was a pacific disposi
tion. At any ralo, the advocates of a con
tinuation of thu war seem secure in
tiieir position, nni everything indicates
that the hope of an immediate change
of fortune is staked on Vice Admiral
Rojestvuusky, whose squadron, accord
lug to the host information, is now act
ually on Its way to meet the Japanese.
The admiralty is greatly encouraged by
thu prospects that Rojestvensky will lie
nblu to defeat Admiral Togo, owing to
the splendid reports which have just
arrived here -from Rojestvensky, dated
from tho Island of "Madagascar, recount
ing in detnll thu condition of the ships
and personnel ami the results of the
target practice of tho squadron and of
thu maneuvers, iu which thu warships
have been drilling for three mouths,
Hungry for Trepoff s Scalp.
St. Petersburg, April B. The police
arrested votorday in the Nevsky Pros
pect a man disguised as a carriage driv
er, presumably belonging to the same
organization as the 21 persons who were
arrested last week for supposed connec
tion with terrorist schemes. There Is
little doubt that there was a plot di
rected uguinst thu life of Governor Gen
eral Trepoff ar.il the latest arrest indi
cates that the terrorist are acting on a
conceited plan, witli auxiliaries and
lookouts to aid thu actual perpetrator
of tho assassination.

St. Petersburg, April B. General
