SAN FRANCISCO. Feb. 6. (Special.)
The Association of Retail Grocers of San

do what they threaten there will be an
exposure of some of the methods that
have resulted in the increase in the cost
The secretary of the grocers has. ad

changes in the quotations upon butter
and eggs, and demanding a stable mar
ket which will enable them to satisfy
customers. The letter says that the
grocers wish a public investigation of the
responsibility for the high prices of food.
po that the public will see who is to
b!me for present oxorbitent prices.
The grocers propose to app?-al to the
Governor to have a rigid Inquiry made.
Tho secretary of the grocers says that it
is impossible for retail grocers to satisfy
customers when one day eggs are quoted
at 60 cents and the next daj at 40 cents

reason for the constant fluctuations.

AFFINITY IS SOUGHT
Rich Miss Gazzam Avows She
Wants Soul Mate.
"PROFESSOR NIBLO" FAILS
Her First Attempt at Mating In Psy
chic Kealms Turns Out IMsas
trously. but This Will Xot Deter
Her From Further Quest.
NEW Y'ORK. Feb. 6. (Special,)
Miss Antoinette E. Gazzam is a young
woman who seeks a soul mate. This
is on her own statement. Moreover,
she is rich, very rich. Her first at
tempt in the affinity business turns
out to have been a most lamentable
failure, for "Nlblo," the hypnotist who
appeared to fill all the requirements,
won't do at all. now that the young
lady with the psychic penchant has
had her eyes opened.
"Professor Niblo' is in private life
Marshall Clark. He is the man whom
Miss Gazzam crossed the continent to
be .with, but the "professor" has a
wife, young, good-looking, and with
a very determined will of her own.
She is willing to stand for all her
husband's clairvoyant work, for it
brought in the money she needed for
her personal adornment, but when it
came to the question of an affinity she
Therefore she instituted suit against
Miss Antoinette Gazzam, demanding
$150,000 for alienation of her hus
band's affections. This she later, with
drew when Miss Gazzam announced
she was through with the man who
failed to measure up to the require
ments of her perfect soul mate.
One reason for the withdrawal of
the suit may have been the $25,000
paid by Miss Gazzam to Mrs. Clark,
though this was paid, sas the former,
because the affinity seeker thought she
may unintentionally have done Mrs.
Clark a wrong.
Miss Gazzam has a fortune esti
mated at $3,000,000. and her castle at
Corn wall -on -the-Hudson is one of the
show places of the state. One day she
left her home and went across the
country to ls Angeles, impelled, she
said, by some force she did not under
stand. There she went, quite by
chance, to a man who afterward com
pletely got control of her mind, Mar
shall Oarjt. He tried to Impress on
her that he was her affinity, but
finally she came to see that his physical
coarseness overshadowed his soul qual
ities, and the affinity deal was off.
GRAIN PROSPECTS GOOD
Dayton Fanners Deny Reports of
General Damage by Washing.
DAYTON. "Wash., Feb. 6. (Special.)
Farmers of the Dayton country deny re
ports sent out from Walla Walla pur
porting to give an estimate of grain crop
prospects in . Southeastern Washington
and mentioning damage at Dayton and
Waitsburg. Although in spots the recent
rains did some damage by washing, it is
untrue. say the farmers, that whole
hillsides will have to be re-seeded.
In the Turner and Covello districts
where is grown fully 65 per cent of the
grain in this county, hardly any damage
was done and reports from various parts'
of the county say that no grain was In
jured by freezing. Snow fortunately pre
ceded each cold spell and protected the
Fall grain. The fact that unusually small
acreage was sown last Fall, tended to
reduce the loss to the minimum.
Grain oealers, of Dayton, who have in
terviewed more than half the farmers as
to crop prospects, say the ranchers are
elated over indications for a large yield

BAKER CITY. Or., Feb. 6. (Special.)
Deputy Food Inspector Maris, of Port
land, found a condition here on an in
spection trip that makes the Oregon
statute regarding the weights1 of butter
look like a misfit. According to the law

16 or 32 ounces in weight. The- inspector
found on sate in local stores butter in
packages with only 15 ounces guar
He consulted the prosecuting attorney's
office, but that official refused to take
action, contending that a. merchant had
a right to sell butter In any quantity he
saw fit so long ae he gave the customer
all the weight that, he agreed to.

Old-Time Victory in November Pre
dicted as Result of Reorgani
zation of Party Fate oX Taft
and Beveridge Combined.
-INDIANAPOLIS. Ind., Feb. . (Spe
cial.) Now that the reorganization of the
Republican campaign committees has
been perfected-, the leaders believe the
lines of the campaign have been so laid
that every element will be at work for
party success and that something like
old-time victories will result in Novem
ber. Everyone admits the party has
made" rapid strides in the direction of
better conditions and that prospects for
party success1 re correspondingly en
hanced. Three or four months ago the
leaders could not see how the campaign
could be conducted In Indiana with the
President favoring the press tariff law
and with Senator Beveridge's vote stand
ing as a protest againet the same meas
ure. United: for Taft and Beveridge,
This was a problem with many of the
leaders, and. they admitted that they
could find no satisfactory solution for It.
That solution . bas come apparently with
out effort and ail the forces tlmt so gen
erously indorsed the President in the dis
trict conventions are lined up for Bev
eridge for re-election to the Senate, and
harmony appears to reign supreme.
The fact is some very judicious work
has been done in Indiana in the last
three months, and the party is now en
joying the full fruition of the effort thus
Invoked. That effort was directed to
bringing all elements together for the
good of the party as a whole .and not
for the aggrandisement of any one per
son in particular. It was known that
Mr. Taft wae extremely popular in the
state, despite bis signing of the tariff
bill and his friendly relations with
Speaker Cannon. It was admitted that
Mr. Beveridge had added to the luster
of the state in the Senate and thctt he
was popular with the masses because of
his general record and his vote on the
Taft Warm Friend of Senator.
To this was added the fact that the
President and the Senator are warm
friends, and that to suffer him to be de
feated for re-election was to increase the
obstacles that Mr. Taft would have to
encounter in Indiana two years hence
when he comes up for re-election.
However, as a result of the harmony
meetings there will be a fine crop of Re
publican candidates for state offices be
fore the nominating convention. All the
present incumbents retire in January
next and their successors will be elected
in November. There are already two or
three candidates for each position on the
state ticket, and the number promises to
be largely increased before the ticket Is
made by the .party.
