Guy Roche, a sporting man. who killed "Sheeny George" Levy, nine years ago, was shot and prob ably fatally wounded late this afternoon in Broadway, between Thirty-flfth and Thirty-sixth streets, while the avenue was thronged with promenaders. Stewart Felton, known as "Big Frank." also a sporting man, was arrested, charged with having fired the shot. He denies the charge. Although he was told be would die, Roche refused to say that Felton shot him, and declared that if he lived he .would settle his account himself. The shooting occurred in the midst of a crowd that filled the sidewalk, and im mediately there waa wild excitement. Felton turned and dashed through the crowd, followed by hundreds of men and women, who shouted for the police. Run-J ning to Seventh avenue, Felton entered a saloon and was there arrested. He was taken to where Roche lay and an effort was made to have the wounded man iden tify him. "Leaae it to me; if I die. all right: if I live, I will make good," was all Roche would say. Roche was hurried to a hospital, where it was said his condition is critical. By this time the crowd had grown to such proportions that reserves had to be called before Felton could be taken to a police station. There two witnesses said they saw Felton Are two shots the instant be fore Roche fell. Felton is said to have come from Chi cago several years ago. Koche is 35 years J old. In 1893 he was convicted of killing "Sheeny George" Levy and was sent to Sing Sing to serve nine years, but was pardoned after erving four years. At the hospital again tonight he refused to say who had shot him. MURDERER ELECTROCUTED. First Shock Is Ineffective and Second One Is Not Entirely Successful. COLUMBUS, O., Nov. 25.

The St. Louis Exposition is to close its gates within a very few days and the assumption is that a short time thereafter the "Louisiana Purchase Exposition Commission" will cease to be. This Commission has attracted some at tention since the days of its creation nearly four years ago, not by what it has accomplished, not by the activity of its members, but rather for what it nas not accomplished and for the noted Inactivity of its members. This Commission holds the palm for use less bodies authorized by act of Congress or created by direction of the President. It has been one of the little luxuries that went with the great St. Louis Fair. -It cost the Government Just $45,000 a year, or In the neighborhood of $170,000, during the entire period of its existence. ' It made practically no return. When this Commission was created It was recognized as a mere provision for a lot of political lame ducks, most of whom were turned out of Congress on Marcn 4. 1901. Thomas H. Carter, chairman of the Commission, had been Senator from Mon tana. John M. Thurston had been Senator from Nebraska: William Lindsay had been Senator from Kentucky, and George w. McBrlde Senator from Oregon. Two other members had been members of the House of Representatives, and the others were picked up promiscuously, according to the amount of pull they couia command. About-all the members of -the Commis sion have done since the day of their ap pointment has been to draw their salaries with studied regularity, ana to present, themselves, well dressed and in good hu mor, on state" occasions. They have spent more or less time at St. Louis, but the actual work they did to promote the Ex position could have been performed by a single man on moderate salary and he would not have been very busy. This Commission was about the limit in Its line, yet it carried $5000 a year to nine politicians, of both parties, wno naa met wth reverses In their own states. What most of these men will do without their $5000 per is painful to speculate on. Proba bly Tom Carter, chairman or ine wm- mission, will be sent back to tne senate. but there is no such outlook opening up for the others. It looks very much as If they would, have to turn in and work, or lso dive, on; eomo of the funds they must hav stored away during the past lour years, when they sat back, drew $5000 a year, and did nothing. MEMORIAL TAKEN TO CZAR. Document Drafted by Zemstvos Pre sented by Interior Minister. ST. PETERSBURG, Nov. 24. Interior Minister Svlatopolk-Mirsky went to the Tsarsko-Selo palace today to present the Zemstvo memorial to Emperor Nicholas. The situation is extremely delicate. Two incidents have occurred, both of which militate against the Liberals and Increase the difficulty of Prince Svlatooolk-Mlrsky's position. Prince Mestlchersky. editor of the Grach Daln, who is head of the reactionary press. this morning unr-asked his batteries, attacking the Interior minister in such fashion for his liberal tendencies that Prince Svlatopolk-Mirsky, for the first tlmo since he assumed tne ministry. ordered the confiscation of the issue. On .he strength of the Influence behind such an attack lies the real significance of Prince Mestichersky's act. At the same time, from the op posite direction, the Nasha Zlesn. (Our Life), a new Radical paper, author ized by Minister Svlatopolk-Mirsky, In dulged in a direct attack on the Em peror, with the result that the minister ordered the suspension of the publi cation. Tho action of this paper Is considered to bo very unfortunate, as It places a powerful weapon in the hands of Prince Sviatopolk-Mlrsky's enemies. Many of the minister's friends arc Inclined now to believe that the Zemstvos went too far and have jeopardized the position of their best friend. Prince Ukhtomsky, editor of the Vledomosti. said to the Associated Press: "The duty of all friends of a Liberal regime is to uphold and sustain Prince Sviatopolk-'Mirsky in every possible way. His retirement would be a great misfortune. Thero was some talk this afternoon of an offer on the part of the government to compromise with the Zemstvos by giving them a voice In the Council of the Em plre. which is the lawmaking body. The proposition is to elect two members of each Zemstvo to sit in the Council and participate in its deliberations, but not to vote. Such a plan, it is pointed out. while not giving the Zemstvos a share in the lawmaking, would insure the presenta tions of the views' of the provinces on all laws enacted. INTERESTING, IF TRUE Tent Cam Try Ytnmetf 4 frere It- One grain of the active principle in Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets will digest 3k0 grains of meat; eggs or other whole some food, and this claim has been proven by actual experiment which anyone can perform for himself in the following man ner: Cut hard boiled eggs into very small pieces, as It would be if masticated, place the egg and two or three of tablets in a bottle or jar containing warm water heated to 88 degrees (the temperature of the body) and keep it at this temperature lor three and one-half hours, at the end of which time the egg will be as com pletely digested as It would have been in the healthy stomach of a hungry boy. The point of this experiment is that what Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets will do to the egg in the bottle it will do to the egg or meat In the stomach and nothing else will rest and invigorate the stomach so safely and effectually. Even & little child can take Stuart's Tablets with safety and benefit if its -digestion Is weak and the thousands' of cures accomplished by their regular dally use are easily ex plained when it is understood that they are composed of vegetable essences, aseptic pepsin, diastase and Golden Seal, which mingle with the food and digest it thoroughly, giving the overworked stom ach a chance to recuperate. Dieting never cures dyspepsia, neither do pills and cathartic medicines, which simply irritate and inflame the intestines. When enough food Is eaten and prompt ly digested there will be no constipation, nor in fact will there be disease of any kind, because, good digestion means good health in every organ. The merit and success of Stuart's Dys pepsia Tablets are world wide and they are sold at tho moderate price of SO cents for full sized package in every drug store in the United States and Canada, as well as in Europe. daughter of Mrs. Kate E.

Boat Capslxes and Four Lives Lost. PORT HURON. Mich.. Nov. 24. The rowboat of William Briggs. night ferryman between this city and Sarnia, Ont., .which Is directly across the St. Clair River from here, was upset near the Sarnia dock and four men from St. Thomas, Ont., who were passengers, were crowned. Ferryman Briggs left the Port Huron dock with six passenger in his rowboat. A heavy sea was running and the boat pitched and tossW. but made the passage safely until within about 100 yards of the Sarnia dock. Then a heavy back swell suddenly caught the craft and capsized her. Ferryman Briggs and two passen gers saved themselves by clinging to the overturned boat, while the other four pas sengers were drowned. CINCINNATL Nov. 24. President Jo- Feph F. Valentine, of the Iron Molders Union of North America, who was ar rested in Cleveland on a warrant sworn out by President Gosiger. of the Eureka i-ounary company, on ine cnarge or aia ing and abetting in the malicious destruc tion of property, arrived in Cincinnati to night, accompanied by Detective Calla han. At police headquarters. Edward J. Denney. secretary of the Iron Molders Union of America, awaited him with a bond of $3000 signed by Michael Lullin. a Councilman, and on which Valentine was released, to appear in Police Court next Monday. President Valentine said: The first news of the alleged plot reached me In Cleveland, where I had gone on official business. I then, as I do now, consider the whole thing a trumped up plot to persecute and intimidate inno cent men. "I am determined that the whole plot know who the real consoirators are.

OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash ington, Nov. 24. Land Commissioner Richards urgently recommends the passage of a bill now pending' before Congress, throwing open to agricultu ral entry all lands within forest re serves that are of such character as can be farmed: He thinks such a law would tend to put to -good use lands that now go to waste. Another bill, now pending, author izing forest officers to make arrests for violation of the laws and regulations relating to forest reserves, is also rec ommended for passage. The absence of such authority has had a tendency to handicap the very men entrusted with the care of great reserves. The Commissioner also recommends that Congress enact adequate legisla tion which will tend to harmonize state legislation upon tho subject of protec tion of game, and fish within forest re serves, without creating a divided Jur isdiction over such reserves, and which would not encroach upon the rights of tne states to control the game and fish within their respective boundaries. A considerable number of permits nave been Issued to persons of un doubted character and responsibility authorizing them to instill and operate sawmius witnin forest reserves where conditions seemed to warrant. The re sults have Justified such action, the ummiesioner conciuaes. so far as known, not one case has resulted un fortunately, but on the contrary the practice of locating- such -mills -near the cutting area In sale cases has tend. ed to promote a more economical use of the timber, better facilities for suddIv ing the products to the consumer, and a more satisfactory understanding with an concerned. This Dractlce ha re sulted in more careful methods in the management and control of fires, and has furnished a corps of trained as sistants in .cases where fires have at tained proportions beyond the control or the forest officers. The Government last year realized $58,436 from the salo of timber within forest reserves, and has applications on hand for large adidtional quantities. The timber sought and sold has been largely deaa. or" Infected with insects making its early destruction certain. Both classes of timber are undesirable in the reserves, and the Government is glad to sell It. even at low nrieex. People are rapidly coming: to under siana mo iree-use permit system in procuring, timber needed for individual use or settlers, miners, prospectors and resiaents. ior firewood, fenclnsr. build ing. mining, prospecting and other An mcstlc purposes, and the number who laxe advantage of the privilege rapmiy increasing. There has been some dissatisfaction expressed because of delays In securlnc thARn Tv-n.if. but In most cases the delay has been atiriDUtaDie to the settler. Commissioner Richards states that in me .tuacK mils forest reserve, in South Dakota, where a great deal of mature iimDer is sold, the revenue has for inree years past been in excess of th. total outlay for the administration of mat reserve He advocates an -rtn slon of the sale and lease proposition, so that the Government may make all oi us lorest reserves self-sustainlnc-. Ho believes a reasonable chare be made for the privilege of grazing siocjt in reserves. Tne revenue that snouia do derived from such a charee would, ho says, be in proportion to the magnitude of the great wool industry in those localities; and there certainly appears to be no good and sufficient reason- ror allowing that industry use of the herbage within the reserves free or chnrgo while requiring thai th lumber trade shall pay for Its supplies arawn irom ine same source. There are also numerous sawmills. hotels, road-ranches. Summer resorts, stores and other establishments within the reserves, all of which should nay small charge each for the privileges granted ot so occupying and using ioresi reserve lands, "under such man agement It would not be long before the reserves would become more than self-supporting." says Commissioner Richards.

The efficiency of the forest ranger system Is shown by the marked de crease in the number and extent of fires within forest reserves. During the last fiscal year there wererxtlngulshed 231 fires which had passed the incipient stage when discovered. The area burned over before the fires were put out aggregated 112.817 acres, and the cost of extinguishing them, exclusive of the salaries of the forest reserve employes, was $4127. This Is a decrease from the prior year of 48 In this class of tlrer. a decrease in the area burned over of 166,917 acres, and a decrease ia the extra cost of $2036. The large de crease In the area burned over is partly accounted for by the fact that the larre fire In the 3Iount Rainier forest reserve In Washington. In September, 1902, burned over 125.0 IS. acres. High-Priced Dirt. New York Tribune. The highest-priced real estate In -London Is near the Bank of England.
