Richards Urges There Be Less
-Haste in Creating Them.
Land Commissioner, In His Annual
Review, Shows That Receipts of
. Office Were Largest on Rec
ord, Except That of 1903.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 22. In his annual
report for this year. Commissioner Rich
ards, of the General Land Office, recom
mends the exercise of more deliberate
consideration o propositions looking to
the establishment of forest reserves than
lias been exercised in the past The re
port adds:
"Though the importance pt the object
to be accomplished by the reserves, .and
the many local interests to be considered
necessitates great care in proceeding
Jurther in this direction, the Government
can well afford at this juncture to delay
action in establishing additional reserves
until the force of forest experts now en
gaged upon the -work can, by practical
field examinations, and the necessary sci
entific research, determine beyond any
reasonable doubt, in what localities and to
what extent further area should be set
apart for this purpose."
During the last fiscal year, nine re
sferves were created, bringing the total
number up to 59 and increased the aggre
gate area covered by forest reservations
to 62,763,494 acres. ,
The report shows a falling off of $1,741,
401 in the total receipts of the office as
compared with the previous year, and a
decrease in the area of public land dis
posed of amounting to 6,181.177 acres. "With
the exception of 1903, the cash receipts
were greater than any previous year.
Speaking of the frauds committed under
the timber and stone act, Mr. Richards
"During the last year it was decided to
use the corps of examiners of surveys
to investigate in the field all applications
for surveys which alleged settlement, and
the result has proved the wisdom of this
"In the timbered regions no real settle
ment of any extent was found, but in
most cases a mere camping hut, without
furniture and destitute of the means of
housekeeping, was all that the examiner
could discover on the ground. It was
learned that these alleged settlers resided
in distant towns and cities, and that they
were Induced to lend their names by
promises of rewards after the survey was
accomplished, evidently having no inten
tion to make their homes on the land,
This Investigation has thus far resulted
In materially checking the rapid absorp
tion, by unscrupulous persons, of the valu
able timber now standing on the public
lands In the mountain district."
According to the report, the total
amount converted Into the treasury for
the benefit of the reclamation fund
amounted to $23,013,836 on June 30 last.
Quartermaster-General Says It Is Both
Necessary and. Economical.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 22. General C.F.
Humphrey, Quartermaster-General, In his
annual report to the Secretary of War,
says the enormous amount of work in
volved in meeting the needs of the Army
can hardly be comprehended by any one
not in close touch with the service. Con
tinuing, he says:
"This work, which would tax the best
ability and energies of a force numerically
strong enough to permit of giving it prop,
er official attention at all points, has
been made doubly onerous- because of the
inadequate number of Quartermasters
now provided by law, and the greatly de
pleted civilian force in the Quartermaster-General's
General Humphrey strongly recommends
some Increase In his clerical force.
General Humphrey says there has been
expended during the fiscal year, on ac
count of the Army transport service,
53,074.024. The value of the work per
formed by the Army transports on the
basis of the lowest obtainable rates of
fered for the same service, he says, was
53.472,250, or a difference in favor of the
Army transport eervice of 5398.236. Con
tinuing, he says:
"Another year's experience has only
tended to confirm and emphasize the
views expressed In my last annual report
as to the utility, economy and necessity
of the Army transport system and the
wisdom of continuing our present policy
in its operation."
The cost of inter-island transportation
in the Philippines has been $876,763, or
5193.S67 less .than the same service would
cost at commercial rates.
General Humphrey says a general ser
vice corps Is desirable on the grounds
of efficiency, economy and discipline. In
time of war or emergency, such a corps
would furnish a body of trained men to
instruct and direct appointees from civil
life and Chilian employes.
Some conservative and practical plan
looking to the retirement of superannu
ated employes of the Government Is advo
cated. It will not do, the report says, to
say that In a long period of service the
employes should have saved sufficient
to provide a competence for old age, add
"Government salaries and Washington
living expenses are not conducive to afflu
ence." " .
Senator Accused of Taking Bribe Will
Have Hearing Monday.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 22. Briefs con
taining the arguments of counsel for
Senator Joseph R. Burton, of Kansas,
were filed In the Supreme Court of the
United States today. The court has ad
vanced the case for hearing on Monday,
November 28.
Counsel for Senator Burton contend
ed that the judgment of the court be
low should be wholly reversed. It is In
eisted that the United States -was not
interested in the question -whether a
fraud order should issue against the
Rlalto Grain & Securities Company, and
that correctly the lower court should
have sustained the demurrer to the in
dictment, or should have granted a mo
tion in arrest of judgment or directed
a verdict for the defendant.
Counsel held there was no evidence to
establish the guilt of the defendant,
and that th,e court erred in refusing to
direct a verdict of not guilty. The de
fendant, it Is contended, during the
time of his employment by the RIalto
Company, did not know that even an
Inquiry was before the Postofflce De
partment as to whether a fraud order
should issue, and he never rendered any
service having any reference to the Is
suance of a fraud order.
It is maintained that the St. Louis
court, under the Constitution, had no
jurisdiction of alleged offenses- based
on the checks to Senator Burton which
the facts at the trial showed were made
in Washington and not in St. Lrouls:
that no services were performed by
Burton before the Posxoffice Depart
ment for the salary which was handed
to him in cash in St. Louis on March 26.
1903: that the court erred In trying
yBrtou when the Senate was in session,
and also in pronouncing sentence of
fine and Imprisonment against him to
be executed at a time -when the Senate
was in session.
United States Contends Sentence of
Murderer Is Inadequate.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 22. Through the
American Ambassador to Mexico, Gen
eral Powell Clayton, the State Depart
ment has addressed a vigorous protest
to the Mexican government against the
sentence imposed by the local court
upon Hermalao Torres, local Judge of
the District of Fuerte, for his connec
tion -with the murder at Aguas Call
ente de Baca on July 19 last, of Clar
ence Walt and Edward B. Latimer, two
American citizens. Torres', who, ac
cording to reports received at the
State Department, -was the chief in
stigator of the crime, received a sen
tence of ten months' imprisonment and
a small fine, which sentence this Gov
ernment deems wholly Inadequate. It
is charged by foreign residents of the
Fuerto district that the court shielded
Torres at his trial and that Torres had
threatened other foreigners. Led by
David Gibson, formerly a resident of
Chicago, the foreigners have prepared
a detailed statement, which has been
presented to the State Department.
United States Concludes Agreement
With Germany.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 22. The American-German
arbitration treaty was signed
this morning at the State Department by
Secretary Hay and Baron von Sternberg,
the German Ambassador. It Is Identical
with the American-French treaty.
As he left the State Department, Baron
von Sternberg expressed his hearty satis
faction that the treaty had been conclud
ed so promptly.
"It was," he said, "a pleasure to post
pone my departure for Europe in order to
sign this convention, the Importance of
which. In its effect upon the maintenance
of the good will and amity between the
two countries cannot be estimated. T can
assure you that this is a happy day for
me. as it Is for my sovereign and my peo
ple." The Ambassador leaves for Germany

Tales of the Street and Town
H. ALBERT, of the State Lewis and
Clark Fair Commission, and a lead
ing banker of Salem, has a story
which he likes to tell on his son. "Harry."
Son Harry works in the bank. Son Har
ry wears his hair bald because he likes It
that way. He was born so, he says, and
his mother and all the family relatives
and friends called him just boo-ful then.
Besides, all men of brains prefer to wear
their hair that way. Who but a fop would
be bothered with partings and combings
and brushings?
But one Rube Haystack, a lifelong friend
of the Alberts, and a depositor at the
bank, came in one day and caught Son
Harry with his hat off. (An unusual cir
cumstance, for all baldhcaded men wear
their hats as much as possible, and like
to be photographed hatted.)
Mr. Haystack gazed hard at the bald
spot until a sunbeam, reflected from the
polished dome of Albertian thought,
struck the Haystacklan eye and caused
it to blink and water.
"That ain't right, Harry." said the old
friend. "You ain't no business to be bald
at your age. Your paw wan't that-a-way
at your age."
Son Harry modestly covered the exposed
surface with his hat, and murmured some
thing in an undertone "not loud, but
"I'll tell you how to fix that." pursued
Mr. Haystack. "I read about 'How to get
hair on ba-ald heads In an advertisement
In the Christian Endeavor Herald, an' you
can bank on anything printed in that
thero paper."
Son Harry began to feel rather uncom
fortable because of the presence of sev
eral Albany young ladies, who were smil
ing. "I'll tell you what I'll do." went on the
kind-hearted Mr. Haystack. "I'll .send
your name to the feller, and he'll do the
Some days later. Son Harry received a
brief circular, urging him to send $1 to
learn how to get hair on his bald head.
Just to get rid of the matter. Son Harry
sent the $1, and promptly received the
"Buy one of our $15 toupees your $1 will
be credited on the price. If you send $14
more, we will, forward toupee and guar
antee satisfaction."

"Have you any brains?" gently in
quired the church-member.

Russian War Nurse Walks In
to Hands of Bandits.
They. Suspect Her of Being a Spy,
and Refuse to Allow Her to
Search for Gallant Young
CHEFOO, Nov. 22. A romantic story de
velops around Miss Corelle, the Russian
war nurse, who Is on her way to Japan.
She refuses to talk, but a reliable au
thority says her capture by the Chinese
bandits, who took her into the Japan
ese lines was part of her scheme to find
her lover. The first report was that
Miss Corelle had voluntarily entered the
Japanese lines. This now seems to be
incorrect. Miss Corelle, it is now said,
was a nurse during the Boxer rebellion,
and won the Stanislas us medal. During
that war she was wounded in the arm and
received the St. George medal because she
continued to work when her wound was
Miss Corelle is a remarkably handsome
woman of 21 years of age. A young Rus
sian officer fell in lovo -with the pretty
nurse, who reciprocated hla affections
fully. Recently this officer was among
the missing, and It was believed he was
wounded or a prisoner among the Jap
anese. In order to find him it is alleged
Miss Corelle strolled from the Russian
camp and very cheerfully allowed some
Chinese bandits to capture her. This
was about 10 days ago. The next step in
her scheme was to become a Japanese
prisoner or reach their lines. The ban
dits, it Is asserted, allowed her to com
municate with the French Consul at Nlu
Chwang, following which a detail of Jap
anese soldiers reached their camp and
Miss Corelle was taken to Nlu Chwang.
She tried to secure permission to go to
Japan and search for her lover, but the
Japanese gave her 24 hours in which to
leave the town, suspecting her of being a

ZANDAGAWA, Manchuria,, by cou

vember 17 and November 18 and were
evidently disheartened. When they re
newed the attack November 19. the
Japanese sent out several battalions
from Doublehumped Hill, but their
movements lacked decision. The Rus
slans opened fire from Poutiloff (Lone
Tree) Hill and neighboring eminences.
Shells burst in the middle of the ad
vanclng Japanese columns and checked
them. The Japanese also tried a turn
ing operation at Chanlindza, but there
also they were dispersed. There was
a slight encounter November 20. Rus
sian scouts penetrated a short distance
into the Japanese lines, but without
much result.

AN ANIMATED discussion took place

who were wasting their time waiting to

was a shaving machine lately patented.
which is operated by electricity and
shaves one as clean as a whistle, and

be a great blessing to a long suffering

a little afraid of It, as it Is said to slice
off an ear or a nose occasionally when In
a hurry, while others were anxious to
give it a trial at any risk, In order that
they, might enjoy being shaved in quiet
An old gentleman who has always waited
for one particular barber to attend to him
said ho felt that it would be more pleas
ant to have one's jugular severed by a
shaving machine, and be out of misery,
than to undergo the slow agony of being
talked to ideath by a talking machine. He
said that if the machine could cut hair he

it had been cut with a knife and fork
or driven in with a tack hammer. The

and the crowd seems determined to secure
one of these machines or a few deaf and
dumb barbers in the interests of self-
man. His company insists that
Its drivers shall wear the uniform

cullar to hackdrlvers the world over.
Nick,, of course, wears one.
Once in every three or four years
Nick "takes a streak" and does some
queer and unheard of thing, something
nobody else would ever think of, or would
do if they did think of it And Nick
"takes the streak" when he's sober, too.
This Is not meant to imply that he takes
it during Intervals of sobriety, for, so far
as we know, he is sober all the time.
He took his latest streak late Satur
day night Having greatly enjoyed a
"stack o' buckwheats and maple syrup" at
a Fifth-street restaurant he bethought
him of his friend Redd, the night clerk
at the drugstore up Morrison.
"Redd must get pretty hungry," said
Nick to himself. "How he would enjoy
a stack of those buckwheats and syrup,
on a terrible stormy night like this."
Then came the streak. Ten minutes
later Nick emerged from the restaurant
carrying a package of 24 hot buckwheat
cakes under his left arm, while in his
right hand he held a quart pitcher of
maple syrup and an umbrella.
He had successfully weathered the gale
as far as Sixth and Morrison, though it
required unusual skill and resolution to
pilot abroad that uniform coat, that tall
hat and protect his burden with the um

office ell came a gust that lifted the hat

the syrup pitcher) to readjust the hat
That was the wind's opportunity. Getting

Sudden Change In the Weather li

Traffic Difficult in the
Country Districts.
LONDON, Nov. 22. Keen frost and
heavy snow squalls are reported from all
parts of the United Kingdom. A gale
raged all night over the coast, driving
vessels to shelter and seriously dislocat
ing the telegraph wires, especially In the
north of England and In Scotland. Blind

the provincial towns.
In London little snow has fallen, but a
sharp fall in temperature Is accentuating
the distress among the poor which is
already prevalent. The snow Is so deep
at Chatsworth that the King of Portu
