London Paper ShkkcsIs It In Con
nection "With. International Banlc.
LONDON, Aug. 3. The Sunday Observer,
a most serious English journal, gives much
prominence this morning to a long edi
torial article advocating tho extension of
the postofnee savings banks into an Im
perial "banking concern, embracing the
entire empire, somewhat upon the lines
of the American National banks, with
this extraordinary feature, namely, the
establishment of branches of the new con
cern In America with an Anglo-American
naval alliance as an adjunct. Under this
scheme, notes would be issued by the im
perial concern to the American banks and
with this international banking alliance
as a basis, American war vessels would
be leased or lent lo protect .British col
onies or British vessels employed in
America In "defense of the vested Inter
ests of the Imperial American Bank. This,
tho Observer believes, might materially
concentrate all vague expression of Anglo
American friendship.

Complaint Against Extensive Spray
ing of Fruit Trees.
SALEM. Aug. 2. (Special.) A. J. Pru
ltt. who has a large apiary near this city,
complains that the extensive spraying of
fruit trees during the blossoming season
is proving a serious injury to the bee in
dustry. He says that the bees, in gather
ing honey from the blossoms, also collect
the poisonous Ingredients of the spray
solutions and take this poison to the hives,
where It kills the young. In three years
Mr. Prultt reports that he has been able
with 12 swarms of bees to raise but one
As this subject may prove one of great
Importance, the statement of Mr. Pruitt's
experience and his opinion as to the cause
of the death of his bees, has been submit
ted to the consideration or Professor A.
B. Cordley, entomologist at the State Ag
ricultural College, and the following ro
pjy has been received:
"Mr. Prultt Is undoubtedly right In be
lieving that there would bo great dan
ger of loss to beekeepers if spraying with
poisonous compounds, while the fruit
trees are in bloom, should become gen
eral. Records of a considerable number
of instances where serious loss has oc
curred from this Timetiee have been nub-
lished in the various bee Journals andN
experiments have been conducted by the
entomologists of several experiment sta
tions, which show conclusively that the
danger is considerable, especially If the
weather happens to be bright and warm
when tho spraying is done. Not only are
the adult bees which visit the blossoms
poisoned, but it seems that even the
young larvae which arc fed upon tho
honey derived from tho poisoned blos
soms are also destroyed.
"However, beekeepers need not be un
necessarily alarmed, because I know of
no authority who recommends that frultj
trees be sprayed at thl3 time. I think I
am familiar with all of the recommenda
tions that have been made by the Exper
iment Station along this line, and I have
looked through the bulletins issued by tho
State Board of Horticulture, and I feel
certain that no such recommendation has
been made in any of tho publications
from these sources. It is necessary in
combating the apple scab, particularly in
the Willamette Valley, to spray before
the leaf buds start, again Just as the
fruit buds are beginning to open and
again after the blossoms have all fallen.
But it is not necessary to make any ap
plication while the trees are in full bloom.
Further, these three applications are of
Bordeaux mixture, a substance which, so
far as I know, has never been accused
of poisoning bees. This injury is caused
by one of the arsenical sprays, Paris
green, London purple or anscnlte of lime.
which has been applied for the purpose
of controlling-codling moth Injuries. It
Is certainly not only not necessary but
not advisablo to spray with these prepara
tions until a week or 10 days after the
blossoms have all fallen. In fact, as I
have shown In my bulletin on the- cod
ling moth, a very large proportion of the
beneficial effect in spraying for codling
motn comes from late applications.
"In conclusion, then, I may say that
bees would be poisoned If fruit trees were
sprayed with arsenical compounds when
the trees were In full bloom, but that It
1b neither necessary nor advisable to use
such sprays at this time.
Little Known Region of South Amer
ica In Dispute.
New York Tribune.
Tho region of Acre, in northern Bolivia,
has been disputed territory between that
country and Brazil for nearly 50 years.
The little country has come into public
notice recently because Bolivia leased a
part of the Acre region to an Anglo
American syndicate. Brazil objects to
this business arrangement, and has
threatened to break off diplomatic rela
tions unless tho contract Is rescinded.
Except that the country Is rich in rub
ber, little Is known about It It occu
pies a-triangular space between the boun
daries of Brazil, Bolivia, and Peru and
Bolivia, with tho Beni River as the base.
The position of the sides of this triangle
as interpreted by the two countries is
the cause of the dispute. A traveler re
cently returned from Acre says of the
natives that they are In many respects
use me .Bolivians, out that there are
among them tribes of a lower class than
can be found elsewhere In that part of
the world. Some of them are said to
be cannibals, and all are shy and averse
to the invasion of their country, by the
whites. They are experts in the art of
using darts, spears and Javelins, and de
light In practicing with these. from the
bush on intruders, whom they usually
attack from behind.
They wear no clothes, but havo elab
orate headdresses made of feathers and
beads, and the younger ones wear strings
of coins and metal disks around their
necks and wrists. There are no horses or
mules in Acre, and tho llama Is used as
the beast of burden.

Police Arrest Her Pending an Exam
ination Into the Case Other
Crime News.
CHICAGO. Aug. 2. The police have ar
rested Mrs. Noel Campbell, of (35 Grand
avenue, on a charge of allowing an infant
to die from lnsfilclent nourishment. It
is alleged that within the last threo years
eight other Infants have been burled from
the woman's house. Yesterday Dr. Well-
field was called to the Campbell house to
attend the Infant which has since died.
He found It In such a condition that ho
efused to issue a death certificate, de
claring that the child died of starvation.
The assertion that eight children have
died in the house is made by Viola Camp
bell, 11 years of age. Mrs. Campbell says
that she Is tho mother of the girl, who
claims that Mrs. Campbell has said on
other occasions that she was not a rela
tive of, hers. A letter was received at
the Campbell house three weeks ago. the
girl says, which was written -by John
Reade, a printer, of Cincinnati. In this
letter Reade told the girl that he was her
father and that she had been kidnaped
from her home in Cincinnati 10 years ago.
concerning the children, who, according
to the girl, have died in the house. Viola
Campbell says that they were received
from a woman living on Wells street, this
city. She says that they were obtained
by Mrs. Campbell because her husband
had threatened to leave her because they
were wltnout children. None of the chll-
dren lived long.
Mrs. Campbell alleges that the child that
died Friday was the daughter of her dead
sister, and while denying that there have
been eight aeaths in the house, admitted
to tne police that three children had died
In her house within the last few months.
There Is no evidence against Mrs. Camp
bell, pave that of the girl. Viola Camp
bell, but Police Inspector- Wheeler, who
has the case In charnc. declares that he
believes her story, and says that the
bodies of the children that died will be
exhumed in order to determine their num
ber. The girl declares that thev were
all burled In one lot In Calvary cemetery.

A Paper Prepared br Mrs. O. R. Tern
plcton. '
I have been requested to givo a few
words about tho work of tho Boys' and
Girls' Aid Society of Oregon, and the
subject given Is the "Dependent Child."
This Is perhaps somewhat ambiguously
expressed. The question might bo raised.
Which Is the dependent child and which
Is the Independent child? Tho very
statement of tho question at once sug
gests tho answer. No child whatever Is
or can be Independent. All children are
for a shorter or longer period of time
absolutely dependent on some one. The
only possible difference Is that between
normal and abnormal dependence, be
tween dependence as it ought and ought
not to be. Where father and mother
properly support, raiso and train their
children, there the true order of things
is observed. Where, however, the re
verse takes place: where the natural
guardians, for whatever reason it may
be, fail to live up to nature's harmonious
plan, there a discord arises and children
become not dependent that they were
before, but abnormally dependent, de
pendent on strangers when they ought to
be taken caro of by their own. What
shall we do with abnormally dependent
The unanimous answer of all fair
minded people is: Let us take tho very
best caro of them we possibly can. The
mere law of self-protection, aside from
any other consideration, will necessarily
dictate this answer. Our own welfare
largely depends on tho welfare of others.
We can never be prosperous alone, un
less our neighbor Is prosperous, too. Our
own prosperity will soon be exhausted.
or, to put It in another form, the very
existence of this great commonwealth
depends on good citizenship. Incompetent,
vicious, depraved citizens aro the great
est danger to our National Institutions.
Therefore, "every one who furthers the
cause of good citizenship performs not
only a most patriotic duty, but he also
acts in his own best interest; ho stands
for self-protection and for the protec
tlon of his country. Is It rationally to
bo expected that neglected children will
become good citizens? Is It not a hun
dred times mori probable that they will
go to ruin, to the great harm of society
In general, and to tho everlasting re
proach of our Christian civilization?
But if we ask by what method . wo
ought to work for the cause of such chil
dren, tho answers vary. Tho end In view
Is the same; tho ways, however, which
arc supposed to lead to that end con
siderably differ. Having the pleasure of
being for many years a member of tho
ladles' advisory board of the Boys' and
Girls Aid Society of Oregon, I shall en
deavor to briefly show how that society
answers the question. Its aims are to
rescue homeless, neglected or abused
children, receive Juvenile offenders who
are In danger of being Imprisoned, and
to provide for such until suitable homes
or employment are found for them, and
continue a systematic attention to their
condition and treatment. Many Illegiti
mate Infants have passed through tho
hands of the society, they being aban
doned by their mothers or surrendered
in order to be adopted. All are placed
very carefully In home3 where they will
be under good Influences. Most of the
children In the care of the society have
been rescued from bad parents; this In
cludes parents or relatives who abuse
their children by cruelly whipping, starv
ing, clothing Improperly or otherwise
shamefully neglecting them. Others are
taken from parents who aro living Immoral-
Another very Important branch of tho
work Is the parole system, or taking care
of .juvenile offenders, thus saving them
from penal Institutions. Upon the ar
rest of a minor under the age of 15 years
for larceny, or in fact any crime not
capital, the Judge or District Attorney
informs the superintendent of the Aid
Society; he then Inquires Into the cose,
and requests the sentence to bo suspended
on the boy. should he be convicted, and
that he be turned over to the society, the
superintendent having all power of par
ents of the boy for a period of 60 days,
said time to be renewed if necessary by
application to the committing Judge. In
some cases it is necessary to take the
boy to the Home and keep him there the
entire time; in other cases the parole
system is adopted, and the boy returned
to his parents on condition that he com
ply with the rules which compel him to
attend day school and Sunday school, and
not to be on the streets at night. He i3
required to report regularly to the super
intendent, and If at the end of the re
quired time he has shown Improvement,
he Is discharged.
By this system, which our superintend
ent inaugurated In January, 1S55, 273 boys
have been kept out of the Reform School
by the Aid Society, or an average of three
per month. How much better it is if in
corrigible youths can be cared for and
their conduct Improved by some other
means than serving terms In the Reform
School. But let us stop a moment and
rnnt!rirr the exDcnse saved the state by
this system. The expense of a boy In the
Reform School Is about 512 a month, and
the average time of each boy in the school
Is two years, thus we readily see that
tho state has already been saved 57S.624.
Is It not wiser and less expensive to save
children than to punish criminals?
The most helpless of all are the defective
children, and there Is no institution In our
state to caro for them. Such an Institu
tion is much needed and should certainly
be organized In the near future, if not by
the state,' by charitable people.
There are now three or four defective
children at the home of the Aid Society
who cannot be placed out, and for whom
there is absolutely no asylum. Two of
the children were rendered defective by a
drunken father, while another was found
In an outside county wandering about In
an entirely homeless condition.
Kindness Is the soul of greatness. There
is no treatness without kindness. That
which Is most hopeful In our American
civilization- Is not our wealth, our almost
inexhaustible resources, not our power
or war by land and sea; It Is the spirit of
fairness and kindness that breathes
thrnueh our institutions.
The Bovs' and Girls' Aid Society stands
for kindness. We mean to deal Kinaiy
with helpless children. We do not ask
who they are or what they are- or why
they are In misery; the simple fact that
they suffer Is sufficient appeal to our en
deavors for their rescue. Many of these
children have never heard a kind, sympa
thetic word they are victims of poverty,
misery, intemperance and sin In all Its
manifold forms and degrees; to treat them
properly, making all due allowances for
their origin, history, character and former
surroundings; to be at the same time kind,
gentle, patient and firm, especially In deal
ing with Juvenile offenders, with such as
have started on the road of crime, this is
decidedly difficult.
To give bread Is life for the body. To
give sympathy Is salvation for the soul.
No one loves me. Thla outspoken word
can be read in tho eyo of almost every
child when received In the Home of the
Bovs' and Girls' Aid Society. These
wretched, abandoned children are received
ragged and dirty, but soon they appear
attractive In clean clothes ana in neaxing
Vinrt irnrds all about them there. Their
faces brighten and tho visitor will be im
m-essed with the happy faces of the chll
dren, showing that they have a home In
hn truest sense.
To give an Illustration of our work, al
low me to state the following:
One day I was going out to visit tho
Home of tho Aid Society. Among the
nnssentrers in the car a man and woman
attracted my attention by their depraved
appearance. To my surprise, when I left
.the car they followed me. Presently the
woman asked me If I were Interested In
the Boys' and Girls' Aid Society. Upon
an affirmative answer she began pleading
with me to aid her In recovering her
dauchter. who. as she stated, had been
taken away from her that morning by an
officer without any cause whatever, ana
with tears and sobs, asserted she had al
ways been a good, faithful mother. When
I inquired into the situation, I learned
from the superintendent these details: The
Rlrl's own brother had come to bupenn
tondent Gardnerand plead with him to res
cue his sister, a girl about 15, who was
in danger of being ruined by her own
mother, who permitted ner to oe on mo
streets late at night and to aance in ais
renutable olaces.
In my presence the mother argued with
the superintendent that she must recover
her daughter and insisted tho girl had a
coed home. She expressed great surprise
that any ono could have reported this
false statement to the officers. She said
she had no enemies that she knew of.
Then In harsh tones she demanded the
namo of the Informer.
What a scene It was when that mother
and father heard the words that their own
son would no longer- trust them with the
care of their daughter, and had begged, to
have her removed from the parental home.
No further resistance was made. The girl
remained In the society's care, and was
nlaced In a Christian home and slnco then
nothing but good has been reported of this
girl. Coming In contact with many cases
of this nature one can scarcely overesti
mate the value of such an Institution that
Is ready at all times to hold forth a help
ing hand. Such an Institution is its own
commendation. Anyone who supports It
honors himself and enjoys that lnestlmablo
blessing "which no money can buy the
quiet consciousness of doing good.

in a boat of any sort would cheerfully
endure the long trip In tho cars, and
with pleasant light and the comforts of
civilization around, in preference to the
unsneakablo miseries of crossing tno
Atlantic Ocean In dirty weather. The
question of passenger traffic Is of second
ary accommodation, however. Think o.
the boundless international advantages
which would accrue to tho world in gen
eral from the completion of such a rail
way. It would open new markets, to a
wonderful extent, and the Pacific Coast
would proflt by it Portland as well as
her sister cities."

De WIndt's First Trip.
'Oh, that was In 1S06, but I mndo New

from New York, traveling through Win
nipeg and Vancouver to St. Michael, In
Alaska, via Juneau and Klondike. The
latter placo was then a email fishing vll
lage known as Tron-Dluck, but it occupies
what Is now Dawson City. We reached
tho Asiatic shore of Behring Straits
about the end of August, but here our
expedition was brought to a standstill
Tho wild natives of tho Tchuktchl village
of Oumwaldjik seized our stores and acted
generally in a scandalous manner. When
wo protested they told us that' we must
live with them until the opening of navi
gation In tho following July. We wero
finally rescued by the whaler Belvedere."

Journey in Winter and suffered from In
tense cold and blinding blizzards? Why
did you not go In Summer?
"In Summer?" echoed Mr. De WIndt,
laughing. "Why, my dear sir, that would
not bo practicable. Between Spring and
Autumn tho Siberian 'tundra, or great
extent of marsh land, bars tho way to all
land traffic In certain seasons of tho
year the swamps or marshes are gaily
carpeted with wild flowers. The consist
ency of tho tundra Is Uko that of
wet sponge. In Winter you can skim In
a sled over its surface at about 10 miles
per hour, but in Summer a pedestrian
would find It difficult to cover any ground
at alL The Arctic desert from east to
west of Siberia, north of the treo line, Is
nearly all composed of tundra, and this
accounts for the fact that land travel
of any kind In these regions Is practically
impossible throughout the Summer, until
Nature has opened out a frozen roadway
In the Autumn and Winter."-
"Will such a condition, then, operate
against tho construction of your pro
posed Siberian railroad? Would not the
roadbed sink?"
"It would not bo an obstacle. In my
opinion. Tho Ingenious system of pile-
driving, which has been In use at Chat
Moss, Lancashire, England, could be utll
lzed, on a larger scale, on the proposed
railroad. It Is a rich country, practically
unexplored. Where riches are a railroad
must follow, sooner or later."
"Are the Russians doing anything to
building an extension of railroad from Ir
kutsk, the present terminus?"
"An exploration Is being carried out un
der tho direction of the Chief Inspector
of Communications, in St. Petersburg,
with a view to the extension of the rail
road of tho Trans-Siberian Railway from
Irkutsk to Yakutsk. That will bo one

Trans-Alaskan Railway Company, when

"Yes. I hope you will not get his com

Company; they are different concerns.
Mr. Frey's company was Incorporated at
Seattle. Mr. Frey was formerly the man
ager of the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe
Railroad. I am sorry that I am so placed
at present that I cannot tell more regard
ing the proposed railroad through Alaska
to Behring Straits."
Cost of the Trip.
"Mr. Do Windt, what do you think
your trip has cost you?" The hardy ex
plorer laughed and said: ."You will have
to ask that question of Mr. Pearson, and
he's too far away Just now. But the cost
will run Into five figures. Really, It's a
comfort to get Into civilization again

Why is it that the firstborn child is so

self. As child follows child the mother
