and House committees on irrigation, ito
gether with officials of the Interior De

in June, visiting most of the projects
where the Government has begun the con
struction of irrigation works, taking in
the Portland Fair and visiting the other
important cities of the West. The trip Is
not to be a junket, but rather a tour of
education. The railroads over which the
party will travel have agreed to furnish
cars and transportation; all other ex
penses are to be borne by the members
of the party.
The trip was planned last Winter by
members of the Irrigation committees.
They had been giving hearings, had lis
tened to talks about what the Govern
ment was doing, and expected to do, and
decided that it would be a good thing if
they could make a, tour of the West and
Eee for themselves what, Js going on and
what le contemplated.' " The" Idea was
adopted. The complete list of those who
will make the trip Is not yet known, but
the itinerary has been completed, .The.
party will assemble at Kansas City on
June 1, and -will, -conclude" its tourat Den
ver on July 2. The following ;is the com

construction of any irrigation projects in
that state. For the same reason there
will be but one stop in Washington. The
trip to Seattle is made to give the party
an opportunity to view the Puget Sound
region.
BROUGHTPERSIA TO TERMS.
Hay's Threat of Action Caused Pun
ishment, of Murderers.
WASHINGTON, April 20. Persia tried
-he patience of the- American Govern
ment severely last Fall because of her
lallure to punish the murderers of Rev.
Benjamin W. Labarvv the American mis
sionary, six months after the murder
tnd after Mr. Tyler, the American charge
it Teheran, had Informed the State De
jartmont that the accomplices in the mur
Ser "would not be arrested unless a per
unptory message Is sent by the Prcsi
lent," Secretary Hay sent a vigorous tel
igram, of which the following Is the off
icial paraphrase appearing In correspond
mce made public at the State Department
today:
"Mr. Hay states that the President is
rery much disturbed over the failure of
the Persian Government to punish the
murderers of Mr. Labaree. If no Imme
llate satisfaction is given, he will be con
strained to lay the matter before Con
iress and recommend such action as may
ead to a compliance with -our demand
!or effective justice."
This brought promises which were not
'ulfilled. After receiving the official as
surance of the Crown Prince of Persia
hat " six accomplices endeavoring to es
cape were killed by the Persian ' forces
and that the remainder of the band Is be
ng pursued." Minister Parson telegraphed
the Department that "information has
reached him from a reliable source that
none of the accomplices in the murder of
Mr. Labaree were killed, as reported, and
ihat he has lodged Indignant remon
strances against the trifling and temporiz
ing and request further instructions."
Secretary Hay then sent another dis
patch, of which this is the official para
phrase: f
"Mr. Hay states that the reported fail
ure of the Persian Government to punish
the murderers of Mr. Labaree Is a source
of grave concern to the President, and
he cannot permit our just demands to be
trLied with or evaded any longer. If no
satisfactory action is taken before Con
gress meets, in less than two weeks, the
President will be constrained to lay tha
matter before that body and recommend
such action as he shall deem necessary."
This brought results. A month later a
settlement was effected and the widow of
Mr. Larabee received 530,000 cash in gold,
and, effective and swift punishment of all
guilty persons followed.
Need JCot Swear They Are Celibates.
WASHINGTON. April 20. Because the
American Government refused to permit

government- took a similar position, the
Lima government has Indefinitely sus
pended the law.
Headed Off War "in South America.
WASHINGTON, April -20,-Qfflcial- cor-
respondence made public at the State De
partment today discloses the fact that

and Ecuadorian forces, acting Secretary!
of State Adee directed the American Min
ister at Lima to Inoulre as to the facts.
and express "unofficially the earnest de,-
sire of the President that peace be pre

OUTBREAK SET FOR EASTER
Terrorists Will Make General Attack
.With Bombs Grand Dukes Pre
scribe Liberal Dose of Martial
Law for Whole Empire.
.GHICAGO, April 20.-(SpecIal.)-A cable
gram from St. Petersburg to the Chicago
Dafiy News says:
"Russia's political sky Is charged with
electricity. The duplicity ot the bureau
cracy and the fact that the Shipoff Lib
erals have left the reformers and are
flirting with the autocracy have united
all the opposition elements around the
Petrunkevitch platform. Strikers dem
onstrations and bomb outrages are again
increasing. The revolutionary forces
throughout the . empire are now mobil
ized." Hitherto the riots reverberated
from one place to another, but after Bas
ter a general attack will be made.
"Nicholas obstinacy may be the cause
of putting an end to the Imperial re
gime. The grand ducal party proposes to
divide the empire into districts, appoint
military governors with unlimited power,
and to place the country under martial
law. M. WItte's enemies. Councilor Sty
shlnsky and the late M. Plchve's son,
have been appointed on the land com
mittee from which M. Wltte was ousted.
Shipoff, leader of the bolting Liberals,
maintains the autocracy and would have
the National assembly divided into four
classes, nobles, peasants, clergy and mer
chants. Petrunkevitch insists on a con
stitution and on the abolition of class
distinction."
