Two Great Railroads May
Adopt Electric Traction.
NortherPaclfic and Great ;Northern
Desire to .Cut. Down .Expense of
'Operation in- the;.Cascade
CJIICAGO, Dec 1. The use of elec
tricity as the motive power for cross
ing the .mountains is being thoroughly
investigated by both the Norther Pa
cific .and the Great Northern Roads,
iwith every probability of its early
adoption. The change, if made, -will
be in the interest of economy In opera
tion. The coal consumption is so
ehonmous in the mountains that the
railways would be glad to adopt elec
tric -traction If the electrical engineers
eould-provo the economy of it.
A steam railway expert from one of
the largest -electric manufacturing
companies bas recently spent several
weeks Investigating the possibilities
of electric traction on the Northern Pa
cific in "Washington.
The Great Northern's motive-power
department has also given a great deal
of attention to the problem. The North
ern Pacific crosses the Cascade Range
by the Stampede Pass through the
Stampede Tunnel, -while the Great
Northern, which formerly had a switch
tback in Stevens Pass, now uses the
Cascade Tunnel at the same point.
, The coal consumption of both roads
through the. mountains is very heavy.
The Northern Pacific is fortunate in
having its own coal fields on both sides
of the mountains. It has mines on the
western aide of the Cascade in the
Carbon River district, about 35 miles
southeast of Tacoma. Its principal
mine is at Roslyn, on the eastern side
of the mountain., a few miles from the
Stampede TunneL Tho Great Northern
is not so fortunate in Its coal supply
in the mountains. It buys a- great deal
of coal from the Northern Pacific
Along the Northern Pacific, on the
Great Northern in the Cascade country,
there are a great many water powers
which could be utilized in generating

Millionaire Politician Denies He De
clared Spooner's Election Bought.
MARINETTE, Wis., Dec 1. Isaac
Stephenson, millionaire politician, whose
name was frequently used by Lincoln J.
Steffens in his article in relation to cor
ruption in Wisconsin politics, and par
ticularly to the time of John C Spooner's
election to the United States Senate in
18S5, has denied he was the source of
Steffen's .information. He does not deny
that the charges might have been true,
but in an open letter he declares he did
not furnish the information. The letter is
to Hon. Marion Wescott, Shawno, Wis.,
end in part says:
"An article was published in McClure's
Magazine for October, 1904, written by
Mr. Lincoln Steffens, purporting to give
some inside facts relative to Wisconsin
political history, which caused quite a
sensation and much newspaper and other
comment Some people Interpreted certain
portions of that article as stating or in
sinuating that many, if not all, of the sup
jporters of Senator Spooner were influenced
to vote for him by some form of bribery.
1 was put in the attitude of furnishing the
information on which the supposed charge
or insinuation was based. It is not my
purpose to discuss wnether the interpreta
tion stated can fairly be given to what
was said by Mr. Steffens, but I will say as
strongly as I know how to that In any in
formation I gave to him in any way it was
not my intention to say or Insinuate that
any member of the" Legislature was
brought to the support of Senator Spooner
by any species of bribery, and nothing
was said by roe to Mr. Steffens, or in blsj
presence, which, fairly understood, would
Justify an insinuation that .any member
of .the'iLegislature was- bribed to vote for
anybody." ' - .

Welmer Ejected Because They Be
lieved Ke Wanted to Vote Twice.
DENVER, Colo., Dec. L Only three
witnesses for the defense were heard to
day In the election cases pending before
United States Commissioner A. B. Capron.
The heating was Interrupted by the neces
sity lor the presence of several of the de
fendants In the Supreme Court, where they
stand charged with contempt The cases
before the Commissioner are based upon
the charge that the defendants prevented
Adolph Welmer from voting in Precinct
Eight of the Fifth Ward. Welmer alleges
that his ballot wag already marked "So
cialist" when handed .him, and that when
he insisted on having a second ballot he
was thrown out of the polling place by
two of the defendants.
Alderman Michael Mafconeyt Cbarl
Kofsky and -Edward Qmalla, respectively -judge.and
clerks of election, all of the de
fence, testified that Welmer did not dls
coer that tho word - SocialIst" was on
his ballot until after it had been handed
to Kofsky, whose duty bad been to tear
off the second of the reference slips, and
the latter had. returned it to him. The de
fendants added that -a number of other
voters -were waiting their turn at the time
so that it was possible Welraer's ballot
had been handed to some other voter and
placed In the box and that the ballot that
was returned to him was that of some
other voter.
The witnesses for the prosecution had
all testified that "Welmer came out of the
booth protesting against the ballot which
he said had a mark on it and that he had
not yet handed it to the judge to be folded,
pasted and marked for deposit in the bal
lot box. AH three testified that no force
was used to eject Welmer from the poll
ing place, and that he was removed only
because they -believed he .was trying to
vote twice..-

the year assistance was rendered by the
life-saving crews to 1051 vessels of all
kinds, involving the lives of more than
3400 persons and property to the value of
nearly $7,000,000. The crews also rescued
103 persons not on board vessels from
various perilous situations, and through
signal warnings of tho beach patrols
saved from possible disaster 161 vessels In
danger of stranding. Vessels wrecked
were generally of small tonnage
There were 359 casualties to registered
vessels. Involving 2545 persons', of whom 21
were lost The estimated value of those
vessels was $4,693,855 and of their cargoes
$1,757,927, making the total estimated value
of property Imperiled 56,456,780. Of this
amount there was saved $5,059,150, and
$1,365,830 was lost Of the 359 vessels which
suffered disaster, 50 were totally lost
Among the smaller craft, not registered,
such as sailboats, rowboats, pleasure
launches, etc, 411 casualties occurred, Im
perilling the lives of S03 persons, of whom
M were lost The value of these vessels
with their cargoes Is estimated at $348,750,

The telephone system maintained by the
service has proved of great assistance,
and much attention has been given to Its
Improvement and extension. Numerous
points not heretofore reached have been
connected, and the line has been kept con
stantly in such repair that, even under the
most adverse circumstances, communica
tion has not been seriously Interrupted
for more than a few hours at any time.
The life-saving lines now extend practi
cally unbroken from Maine to the Caro
linas and have connection at all Impor
tant points with the commercial telephone
and telegraph lines of the country, and
abo, where desirable, with the light
houses and weather bureau offices on the
The life-saving stations, the report says,
constitute an Important factor in the sys
tem of patrol guard maintained by the
Navy Department for protecting the coast
in time of war, and it is expected the
wireless telegraph system, now being
tested by the Navy, when sufficiently per
fected, will be extended to the llfe-cavlng
station; in fact plans already are being
prepared for its installation.
The General Superintendent again ear
nestly urges the Justice and propriety of
extending the retirement system of the
Army and Navy to tho members of the
life-saving service, thus providing for
those who become disabled In the line of
duty or unfit for further service by rea
son of advancing age.

for the Government In the case of

of the United States. He contended
tnat this was an ordinary criminal

Mr. Hoyt arirued that Senator Bur

he accepted service with the Rialto

defendant by the company, but when
he accepted a fee "he linked the fatal
Mr. Hoyt discussed tho claim of the
defense that the charge was an "in
famous crime" instead of a. "misde
meanor," and therefore that the de
fense should have ten, instead of three
challenges. He alleged that the con
tention of the defense -was not valid.
Justice White asked it he' did not real
ize that the penalty carried a disquali
fication of the accused, would debir him
from citizenship and forever put a stigma
upon him. Mr. Hoyt maintained that
the statute made the offense a misde
meanor. Mr. Lehman closed the case in an hour's
argument for Senator Burton. He re
viewed the testimony with reference to
Mr, Burton's visits to the Postofflce De
