NEW YORK, June 8. Willis Farris,
the 5-year-old boy who was left at Boon
vllle. Mo., yesterday, and who was sup
posed to have been kidnaped from New
York, is the nephew of a Mrs. Farris, of
Statea Island, according to information
which Mrs. Farris gave to the police of
this city today. She did not explain to
the police when or how the boy left New
York, or why he should have been sent
to Boonvllle. The child was left in the
care of the station-master at Boonvllle
by a railroad conductor, to be put off at
Boonvllle to meet relatives, who could
not be found.
Later Mrs. Lizzie Farris said she was
the Aunt Lizzie of whom the child told
the authorities at Boonvllle. The boy,
she said, is her nephew from Ireland, who
had been living with Mrs. Farris' daugh
ter and her husband at Durango, Mexico.
She will provide for his return to New

Klnney says he is certain the boy's father
put him on the train In San Antonio, for
when he placed him in care of the con

tenderly and the lad called the man
"papa." The conductor says there is no
secrecy about the matter. Telegrams

TAWNEY'S CRY IS "HALT"
Army, Navy and Pensions Consume
65 Per Cent of Revenue Rea
sons for Opposing Farther
Additions to Navy.
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
ington. June 8. More than three-fifths of
the revenues of the Government, 63 per
cent, to be exact, are being expended by
this Government on its Army and Navy
and pension roll. In other words, it takes
thU large portion of the Federal revenue,
under present policies, to maintain our
war forces of the present and provide
pensions for those who served in the
Army or Navy of the past. This aston
ishing fact was brought out In a speech
by Representative Tawney, of Minnesota.
chairman of the committee on appropria
tions, while the naval appropriation bill
was under consideration. Mr. Tawney
presented these and other figures which
satisfied him that it was time to call a
halt in the enlargement of the Navy, In
order that the country may see just where
its money Is going and determine whether
or not the Na-y Is becoming a luxury
rather than a necessity.
Mr. Tawney is opposed, to the Presi
dent's naval programme, and Is not 1n
favor of building any more new warships
at this time. He says that under the Ad
ministration's policy, the siz of our Navy
is to be determined relatively by the size
of the navies of other countries, regard
less of our own necessity. He does not
believe it is good business policy to spend
fabulous sums to enlarge the Navy when
there is serious doubt wehther the result
ing benefit compensates for the outlay.
Senator Hale, chairman of the naval com
mittee of the Senate, is of the same
Mr. Tawney'a figures show that the pen
sion roll for the present year will cost
the Government 175,957,638. while the coat
of maintaining the Army and Navy and
constructing new warships this year is
$199,702,081, or a total appropriation of
J375.659.719 out of a total revenue of 59.
093.000. The postal revenues ,are not in
cluded in the last figure, for the reason
that the postal service consumes the en
tire postal revenue, and then calls for a
small apportionment out of the general
Mr. Tawney stated that the expenditure
on account of war this year is t28.000.000
in excess of the total revenue of the Gov
ernment only nine years ago.
Perhaps the most striking feature of the
entire statement was a comparison be
tween the war appropriation and the cost
of the Panama Canal. "We talk about
the Panama Canal being the greatest un
dertaking any nation has ever attempted,"
said he. "We speak ot the cost of that
great project almost in a whisper, for
fear that we may create an Impression
throughout the world that its enormous
cotjt may impair our National credits or
ultimately bankrupt the Nation; and yet
it may be of interest to know that the
Fifty-seventh and Fifty-eighth -Congresses
appropriated more than twice as much
money for the Navy as It will cost to
build the Panama Canal according to the
highest estimate that has yet been sub
mitted." A detailed statement was produced
showing that the total appropriations for
the Navy in the Fifty-reventh Congress
amounted to J169.054.O4S, while the appro
priations , for the same purpose by the
Fifty-eighth Congress amounted to $219.
0C4.113, or a total for the two Congresses
of $388,064,113. This amount, said .Mr.
Tawney. was more than twice the esti
mated cost of the Isthmian Canal.
In connection with his argument, Mr.
Tawney cited a number of interesting
facts about tae annual cost of maintain
ing warships. For Instance, according to
the Navy Department records, It cost $634,
265 to maintain a first-class battleship
last year. To maintain a second-class
battleship it cost $468,729; an armored
cruiser, $489,206: protected cruiser, $385,624;
monitor, $209,273; torpedoboat-destroyer,
$81,674; torpedoboat. $34,000. and submarine
torpedoboat. $29,879. These are not ex
treme cases but the average for ships of
There are in the navy today 270 vessels
all told, with an aggregate tonnage of
711.262 tons. There are 38 vessels under
construction, with a total tonnage of
384.780. In other words, there is under
construction more than 50 per cent of the
total tonnage of our present Navy, the
new ships to be completed by 1910.
KNEW THEY VIOLATED LAW
Argument Against Packers in Bur
lington Rebate Case.
KANSAS CITY. Mo.. June 8. A. S. Van
Valkenburgh. District Attorney for the
Western District of Missouri, in the Fed
eral Court here this morning, presented
the Government's side in the cases of
Armour & Co.. Swift & Co., Cudahy &
Co., and the Nelson Morris Packing Com
pany on trial on a charge of accepting
rebates from the Burlington Railway on
export shipments. Mr. Van Valkenburgh.
declared that th-Tacking company's ac
ceptance of a rate of 23c a hundred pounds
when the regular tariff was 35 cents was a
plain violation of the Interstate Commerce
act. He said in the course of his argu
ment: "Since the passage of-- the Elklns
amendment, the shipper Is liable equally
with the carrier, and the mere soliciting,
aecepting or receiving of a conoeSfelon or
rebate is made an offense. No' intent is
necessary to the completion of that of
fense. Where the specified intent Is not
essential, a mistake or ignorance of fact
is quite as immaterial as mistake or Ig
norance of law.
"The duty is laid upon the shipper to
guard against violating either the law or
the spirit of the law. If he ships and ac
cepts a rate, he is bound, at his peril, to
know that the rate he accepts does not
Involve a concession from the published
Mr. Van Valkenburgh said that ' the
packers knew of the actual rate of 35
cents at the time they made the shipment
In the case at point and accepted a rate
of 23 cents.
Frederick Hagerman. representing Ar
mour & Co., and speaking for the other
defendants also, followed Mr. Van Valken
burgh in rebuttal argument. He took the
stand that the packers' contract with the
Burlington Railway was valid; that the
packers did not intend to violate the In
terstate commerce act, and that the in
tent must be considered.
Judge McPherson continued the case's

Just a Bit o' Blarney.
Four Track News.
If you want to kiss the Blarney Stone
you must go over to Blarney Castle
from Cork. Of course, it Is understood,
that first you go to Cork.
The way to get to Blarney Castle Is In
a jaunting-car. Perhaps this will be
your initial ride in a jaunting-car, and
you will never forget it. In the first
place, the driver tells you that it will
cost your four bob. Tou have no more
idea what he means by four bob than if
he had said four Roberts, but after you
succeed In making him understand that
you are a bewildered American trying to
get rid of your money, 3000 miles from
home, he will explain, 'begorra and be
Jabbers, that it's shillings he's talking
about "four shillln', bedad!"
Then you climb up on his car. It has
one horse, two wheels and five seats. He
aits on the front seat. You sit over one
of the wheels, sldewlse. There is a bench
overhanging each wheel, which accommo
dates two. If there are three other per
sons in your party you fill up the jaunting
car two of you on each side.
When you start you feel as if you were
on a camel. If you have never ridden
on a camel, you don't know how you feel.
You have an Idea that you are going
to fall off; also, that you are going to
collide with every vehicle you meet, for
you are not yet accustomed to the foreign
habit of turning to the left. Instead of
the right, and, naturally, you feel called
