STONE HAS VISION -OFGHANGED
OBDEB
Senator Sees Cummins and La
Follette in Shoes of Aid
rich and Hale.
REGULARS ARE "DONE FOR
Prediction Offered That President
Will Take New Leaders Into
Councils, Leaving Old Ones
to Cool Heels Outside.
"WASHINGTON, May 17. Stone of
Missouri, in the Senate today, painted a
picture of that body under what ha
termed the new leadership of the "insur
gents." Contending that in the contest of last
Friday over the long and short haul pro
vision of the railroad bill the "insur
gents" had won a signal victory, he
painted Cummins as occupying the place
of Aldrich; La Follette that of Hale:
Brlstow that of Lodge, and Nelson that
of Gallinger.
He pictured Clapp. the "bold black
eagle of Minnesota," as chairman of the
committee on intenstate commerce, in
place of Elkins, while Bevertdge was to
be found exhorting his colleagues to har
mony and regularity and Dolllver acting
as musical director, and the "silver voice
of Carter" was to be heard sweetly
echoing in the chorus.
Ilecognition Is Predicted.
The Missouri Senator outlined a second
picture that of the President receiving
the new leaders, which he said the Chief
Executive would be quick to recognize.
If at all like his "immediate predecessor."
They would be called Into consultation
over Administration matters, "while the
old-time regulars were left to cool their
heel outside with. Democrats and other
plain people."
There could be no question, said
Stone, that the regulars had capitulated
that on the fateful Friday the 13th,
Aldrich, Elkins et al. had showed the
white flag and henceforth the former
insurgents would become the regulars.
The old "regulars" had been "done
for." Not only bad they achieved a
victory over the regulars in the Sen
ate, but over the Attorney-General who
drew the bill, and oyer the President,
who had been its sponsor.
Bill 19 Mere Skeleton.
In the House, even to a greater ex
tent than in the Senate, the bill had
been vitiated, he continued, so that the
measure as it came from that body was
a mere skeleton of the measure the
President and Attorney-General had
sent to Congress, and he hoped "the
fiasco would stand aa a warning to
impertinent officials not to interfere
wiiu legislation." But while he. con
gratulated the "Insurgents" ha was
not disposed to admit that the pros
pect for the future was any better
under the new than under the. old
regime.
He had no faith In either Republi
can faction and advised the dissatisfied
everywhere that the only real refuge
was in the Democratic party. He char
acterized as a "gratuitous and wanton
insult" the recent statement by Dixon
that' Aldrich was reported to "carry In
his pocket the votes of 11 Democratic
Senators."

SOLDIERS AFTER MAP DATA
Hugo Work Will Give Every Topo
graphical Detail of Country.
VANCOUVER . BARRACKS, Wash.,
May 16. (Special.) A military map is be
ing made by the United States' Army that
will give full topographical details of the
whole United States. This will be very
elaborate and include every road, trail,
railroad, county road, bridge, river,
stream, lake, body of water, cow trail,
sheep path and a vast quantity of infor
mation. It is being drawn in sections',
to a sale of two inches to the mile, and
. when finished will be about 500 feet long.
Lieutenant Perkins, with a detachment
of 11 men, left today for Summit; Wash.,
, to spend the Summer in making surveys
and gathering data for this huge map.
Lieutenant Sykes, of the 26th Infantry,
and six men went to Rldgefteld today, on
a similar mission. The making of this
map has been in progress for many years.
POISON CAUSE OF DEATH
Vellx Find ley Took Laudanum
Either by Mistake or Intent.
That Felix' Findley, who was found
dying at his home, 7S0 Kelley street, Sun
day afternoon, either took an overdose of
laudanum by mistake or committed sui
cide is believed, owing to the fact that
an ounce bottle which had contained
laudanum was found in his' Toom.
Dr. S. H. Sheldon was summoned to at
tend the man Sunday and found him In
a stupor from which it was impossible
to arouse him. Findley who was 65 years
old has been in poor health for some
time and during the few days previous to
his death had been in a very despondent
mood.
FOOLISH GIRL FEVER VICTIM
Arrested as Night Loiterer, She Dies
as Redemption Is Planned.
The career of pretty Martha Larlmore,
" un old, who was attracted from her
rural home by the fascinating life of the
city, lured Into the paths of indiscretion
by the glare of the arc light and ribaldry
of boon companions, was short. A few
days and nights of revelry, then Into cus
tody of the Juvenile Court, one night at
the Detention Home, .two days at the
House of the Good Shepherd, two days in
St. Vincent's Hospital, and she now lies
a corpse at Dunning & McEntee's, the
sixth victim of scarlet fever in the pres
ent epidemic, and will be cremated as a
county charge this morning.
The disease was detected when she was
at the House of the Good Shepherd, al
though she had complained of a sore
throat at the Detention Home. As soon
as her case was diagnosed as scarlet
fever, she was removed to St. Vincent's
hospital. Yesterday death claimed her.
The girl, who was alone in the city, was
arrested last week by Juvenile Court of
ficers, for being out late at night. Her
case before Judge C. U. Gantenbeln was
postponed because of her illness. The
girl was strong, healthy and pretty. She
seemed to have been a victim of misfor
tune rather than wilful indiscretion, and
efforts were to have been made to obtain
a home for her.
DEFORMED EAR BETRAYS
FUGITIVE CAPTURED AS SPE
CIAL POLICEMAN.
After Seven Years Liberty Grat M.
Walk, Convicted In Tennessee,
Discovered In Idaho.
COBXK D"Alene, -Idaho, May 17.
(Special.) Groat M. Walk, wanted at
Bristol, Tenn., for the murder of Police
man George H. Childress, of which crime
he was convicted on February 7, 1903.
was arrested here today by Officer Evans
and Chief McGovern, of the local police
force.
Walk's arrest is the result of some
clever detective work on the part of Po
liceman Evans. Evans got his clew from
a reward sheet offering $500 for the re
turn of Walk, sent out by the Tennessee
authorities. The picture accompanying
the sheet seemed familiar to Evans and
he finally reaohed the conclusion that
Walk and J. W. Howard, who served
as a plain clothes officer here last Sum
mer during the opening of the reserva
tion were one and the same.
Howard was sent here last Summer by
Stofford, chief of the merchants' police
of Spokane, where he bad served on that
force for three years and came well rec
ommended. Evans wrote to Howard at
Seattle and told him if he would return
here there was a deputysblp for him in
the Sberlffs office. Howard responded
promptly during last week and was put
on duty by the Sheriff. Evans and Mc
Govern studied the man closely and to
day decided to make the arrest.
Summoning "Howard to the jail In the
basement of . the Courthouse, they seized
and searched him but he was unarmed.
With tears he pleaded for release, but
finally confessed his Identity and ad
mitted the charge against him. He said
he escaped from jail at Bristol on May
22, 1903, after his conviction. He an
nounced his willingness to return to Ten
nessee without a requisition.
A deformed right ear shown in the pic
ture on the reward sheet was the clew
to Walk's identification.

Mlssonrl Sends Troops to Ilasco
When Foreigners Force Shutdown
of Cement Works.
HAKNI6AL, Mr.; May 17. The strike
of 1500 foreigners at the Atlas Port
land Cement Company's plant, at Ilasco,
four miles south of here, assumed a
serous aspect tonight. Reports of fire
arms and the shouts of drunken men
caused hurry-up orders for Companies
C of Kirksville and E of Hannibal,
of the Missouri National Guard. They
arrived at midnight.
A clash between the troops and the
strikers is feared. Colonel W. J. Hill,
of Governor Hadley's staff, asked the
Governor to declare this place under
martial law, and to order the saloons
closed.
The strikers were paid off today and
Immediately began drinking.
The men struck at noon and forced
the company to shut down the plant,
tiirowlng 2100 employes out of work.
Several hundred Americans, who went
to Ilasco from here, were ordered to
remain on the train and return to this
city. The strikers drove everybody
opposed to them off the streets of
Ilasco.
'WETS' GRILLEDBY BRYAN
ORATOR URGES DIVORCE OF OP

Liquor Interests Declared Impudent,
Insolent and Sordid for Making
It Part of Question.
NEBRASKA CITY, Neb.. May IT.
Speakifig at the Overland Theater here
na8t night, W. J. Bryan urged an extra
session of the Legislature to enact the
initiative and referendum, whereby the
question of county option might be re
moved from partisan politics. Rumors
that Mr. Bryan would receive a chilling
reception were not fulfilled. The crowd.
which was large, was respectful and
attentive.
Mr. Bryan said the saloon interests are
so opposed to county option they were
unwilling the people- should vote on the
question.
He criticised the attitude of the antl
optlonlsts. of this county, who, he said.
went so far as to discourage the free dis
cuselon of the Initiative and referendum,
and concluded as iouows:
"The liquor interests are responsible
for the forcing of the county option ques
tion into the arena of politics and they
have only themselves to blame for the
results that shall follow the growing in
dlgnatlon against the Impudence, the in
solence and the sordidness of the liquor
interests.

NEWS FALLS FLAT
Writers Looking Askance at
Rickard Announcement.
RING NOT TRUE, THEY SAY
San Francisco Men Think Selection
Is Merely Tentative and That Pro
moter Will Withdraw and An
other Selected as Referee.
BY HARRY B. SMITH.
SAN FRANCISCO, May 17. (Special.)
That Tex Rickard was agreed upon as
referee for the big fight has come in the
nature of a great and complete surprise
to local followers of the pugilistic game
and the public at large Is somewhat
mystified' as to how this latest angle
should be taken.
To tell the truth, the naming of Rickard,
while it came with a dramatic effect that
Is rarely seen at a gathering of fighters
for such a purpose, did not ring true. To
the experienced ears -of the newspaper
critics who were crowded about the table,
there was something flat in the stage
setting and it is believed that the selec
tion of Rickard Is nothing more nor less
than a temporary proposition, agreed
upon to allay the feeling of the general
public, that had been demanding action.
Immediately following the breaking up
of the conference, there was a hasty
gathering of the newspaper writers, who
questioned one another as to what it all
meant.
"It does not sound right," was the con
sensus of opinion and unanimously that
little crowd of men shook their heads.
What they meant, although they did
not give voice to their feelings, was that
there had been a stage setting for their
benefit and that of the world at large.
In fact, one of the. Eastern writers who
has spent much of his time prowling
around the camps, declared that he had
heard on , Sunday night that it was the
plan to name Rickard. but that Tex
would not consider nimsen tne per-
menant holder of the position.
In fact, the evident desire of Rickard
to impress it upon the sporting writers
that he is willing to give way to any
other man was taken to mean that the
Uevadan wants to pave the way for bis
own resignation.
Many followers of the game doubt the
wisdom of the selection, as Rickard has
never bad experience as a referee, al
though he doubtless possesses all the
necessary qualifications, such as honesty
and falrnes's.
At publio places where such matters
are discussed, it was the general opinion
that a referee of National reputation
should have been chosen. There are sev
eral such men in this city. If a local
referee, experienced to the game had
been selected, it would have added confl
denc to the battle something that is a
bit lacking at the present time.
Tex will discover that his ta.sk is one
of considerable magnitude if he is forced
to face a crowd of 30,000 people. He
never had any experience in the fight
game before his opening career as
handler of the Gans-Nelson fight in Gold
field and he may be up against it when
It comes to telling whether one man or
the other is violating the rules.
Betting, too, will be affected by this
selection and the man behind the men
who follow suoh matters closely believes
that a change will be made very shortly.
.mere was a startling rumor going the
rounds tonight. It was nothing more or
less than that Billy Nolan, of Battling
iveison fame, Is to manage Jack Johnson
during the coming fight. Nolan has been
a daily visitor at the Johnson camp and
this, in conjunction with the rumor that
Johnson and Little .have had a split,
lends color to the story.

COMET IS 90 DEGREES LONG
During: Earth's Passage Through
Tail Telegraphs Will Be Affected.
SAiN JOSE, pal.. May " IT. Director
Campbell, of the Lick Observatory, today
gave out the following:
"Halley's comet was 90 degrees long at
daybreak this morning, both as photo
graphed and as observed by the eve.
This corresponds to a length of 24,000,000
miles. The. nearest point of the comet
was 11.000,000 miles from the earth. Tues
day morning It will be nearly 7,000.000
miles away; Wednesday morning a little
over 2,000.000 miles and Wednesday even
ing the earth will be passing through Its
tail.
"The present diameter of the tall at
the point through which the earth will
pass is a little over 1,000,000 miles. The
two bodies will have a relative velocity of
aDout t miles per second; and the time
required for the passage, if "the present
dimensions remain unchanged, will be six
or seven hours.
"The tails of the comets usually lag be
hind the straight line drawn from the sum
through the heads; for some comets but
little, and for others several degrees The
exact time that the earth will enter the
tail is accordingly uncertain, by several
hours.
"It is true that comets are the most
mysterious bodies in the sky and that
many important questions concerning
their origin and constitution remain un
answered. "It is very unfortunate that the moon,
nearly full, will Interfere with, optical ob
servations of the phenomena attending
our passage through the tail. If the moon
were absent there is little doubt that we
should be able to see the night sky
faintly illuminated by that part of the
tall which projects beyond the earth. Be
cause of the possible and probable lag
ging of the tail, there is a chance that
we may still be in the tall the latter
part of Wednesday night, and that some
evidence of its presence may be seen
in the short interval between moonset
and dawn Thursday morning. It is not
expected that the event will be attended
by a meteoric display to any extent.
There will probably be no more meteors
observable on Wednesday night than on
other nights.
"Astronomers of the Lick Observatory
have been credited in newspapers; with
the opinion that the telegraphic service
will not be affected. We have never ex
pressed such an opinion. It would not be
surprising if telegraphic transmission
were interfered with, as is the case when
strong aurorae are present In the sky."
IMMIGRATION IS BOCK
SOCIALISTS SPLIT ON ADMIS
SION OF ALIEN RACES.
Backwardness of Far Easterners
Constitutes Menace to Progress of
America, They Urge.
CHICAGO, May 17. Delegates to the
National Congress . of the Sooiallst
party today became involved in a dis
pute over the question of immigration.
The submission of majority and minor
ity reports from the committee that
has been investlgatinr the proposition
for two years started a flood of ora
tory. The doctrine of equal privileges for
all races as enunciated by the Inter
national Congress of the body at Stutt
gart, was not Wholly Indorsed in the
majority report which recommended
the exclusion from the United States
of all Chinese, Japanese, Coreans and
Hindus. Ernest Unterman, of Cali
fornia, Victor L. Berger, of Milwaukee,
and Joshua Warhope were sponsors of
the majority report. The minority re
port was reported by John Spargo, of
New York. It declared It to be the
duty of the Socialist party to break
down the barriers that separated
races.
The majority report indorsed all
parts of. the Stuttgart immigration
plank except that dealing with the Asi
atic races.
"We advocate the unconditional ex
clusion of these races," says the re
port, "not as races per se, not as peo
ples, with definite psychological char
acteristics but for the evident reason
that these peoples occupy definite por
tions of the earth which are so fr.r
behind the general modern develop
ment of industry they constitute a
drawback, an obstacle and menace to
the progress of the most aggressive.
militant, and intelligent elements of
our working-class population.
Declaring the volume of Asiatic im
migration is too small to constitute
a menace, the Spargo minority report
says the Socialist party must make a
supreme effort to break down the
barriers that keep immigrants outside
the labor movement.
MEN SHY AT TEACHING NOW
Difficulties In Rural School Inetruc-
tkm Lead Male to Grow Wary.
WALLA WALLA, Wash., May 17-
(Special.) Mrs. Josephine Preston, super
intendent of Walla Walla County schools,
declares that every year sees the number
of male applicants for positions as teach
ers growing less. The annual teachers'
examinations have Just been completed
and, out of the 42 applicants, but two
were young men.
There are several places in -this county
where it is almost impossible for young
women to teach and seldom can one be
induced to brave the wilds. Mrs. Preston
finds many causes for the young men
steering clear of "training the young
Idea."
One pretty little school teacher, about
22 years old, is teaching this term in a
school almost isolated. She sleeps in a
cabin a half mile from the school, boards
at a house a mile in the opposite direc
tion, while she walks almost a half mile
for her drinking water. Few women will
accept these positions at J75 per month.

WALLA WALLA, Wash., May 17.
(Special.) Apple blight is threatening
the entire crop in the Walla Walla

mediate action it cannot be saved. It
is understood that the blight is worse

Fruit Inspector C L. Whitney Is receiving-
complaints from orchardlsts in
every part of the valley daily and ac
knowledged this afternoon that condi

Its shipping facilities are ideal, by the UNITED
RAILWAYS and the NORTHERN PACIFIC, a deep
water harbor and a ship channel to the Willamette
River.
Wherever a manufacturing eompany locates, sev
eral important features are established: Adequate
shipping facilities, a plentiful market, ample labor and
a source of raw material, easily and economically
obtainable.
A still greater fact is founded t
The building and operation of a mill means the em
ployment of men; the necessity of their living close to
the mill; the demand for home-sites, stores, churches,
banks and schools.
These mean increase in real estate values, opening
up a fine investment field.
An even greater development is certain to follow.
Where one manufacturing enterprise locates,
others may be profitably built and operated.
BURLINGTON is such a place.
Warehouses, docks, manufacturing plants and big
industrial companies are coming.
This means employment of labor, demand for real
estate, increase in values and prosperity for those who
step in now and grow with BURLINGTON'S growth.
The future of BURLINGTON is past the pros
pective stage; its importance is definite and certain.
