sum of the decrease in cash, less the

NETW YORK, Sept. 14. Kaiser Wllhelm,

had an amusing and expensive experience
in remembering the King of Slam's birth

expressed admiration for the Kaiser's

Kaiser, together with the fact that the

THINK HE IS TRAIN-ROBBER
Detectives Arrest Man Who Talks
Too Much When Drunk.
SPOKANE, Wafh., Sept. 14. (Special.)
The Great Northern officials believe to
night they are on the trail of the men
who robbed the Oriental Limited near
Rexford, Mont., on Thursday morning.
This morning at Bonner's P'erry, Idaho,
a man named James Sharkey was placed
under arrest by a detective of the rail
road and It Is now believed there Is a
tangible clew to work on, after three
days' of search by the officers. Sharkey
was a compassman in Montana In the
employ of the Bonner's Ferry Lumber
Company. It is said that his own words
will be used against him. He had been in
the woods for a long time, and while
there would have had an opportunity to
plan for a hold-up. He has been drinking
considerable for several days before the
hold-up occurred, and in his cups he de
clared to several persons' that the Great
Northern train was going to be held-up.
He Is said to have given the time and
place where the robbery actually did
Just how much dependence Is to be
placed in the arrest is problematical, as
the reports from Bonner's Ferry are
brief. The railroad officials, however,
evidently believe they are on the right
track, as they took up the matter as
soon as they heard of what the man
No definite word has come yet from the
posse which has been searching the ter
ritory in the vicinity of the place where
the hold-up occurred.
MONEY FOR ERIE STRIKERS

ST. LOUIS, Mo., Sept. 14. The conven

Machinists voted $10,000 today for the
benefit of the Erie .Railway strikers. In
discussing the matter President James
O'Connell declared he intended to fight
harder than ever to win the Erie strike.
He also resented the written charge by
General Manager Stewart, of the Erie
road, that $50,000 had been paid for im
munity from strikes and that no strikes
were called while the money was paid.
Some of the delegates have written state
ments from General Manager Stewart
that the $50,000 was paid and they want to
know -who. got this money' and declare
they will not be satisfied ' until -. the
charges are' probed.

WILIi DEVOTE IT TO REST AND
Railroad-Builder Talks of Good Use
for Spare Hours Tells Young
"" to Get Knowledge.
NEW YORK. Sept. 14. (Special.)
James J. Hill, the great railroad builder,
in discussing success in life, has pre
pared the following statement for publi
cation: "I have always lived the life of a man
endeavoring to be usefully busy. I mean
to drop business cares entirely in the
evening and to unite work, rest and rec
reation In reasonable proportions. I am
fond of both hunting and Ashing and
spend a short vacation each Summer on
a salmon river in Labrador.
"The working days and the working
hours are those in which there is neces
sary work to be done, whatever time
that may require. Spare hours are well
spent upon the study of history, litera
ture and art. Whatever any able mind
of great genius has given for the instruc
tion or enjoyment of the world is worth
while. Ample and accurate information
is the first step toward success for every
one, and the world of historic fact, eco
nomic fact and scientific fact, with the
bearing of each upon the probable future
of human effort, is now so large that a
man will find all his leisure too little for
his desire to equip himself with knowl
edge. In books and pictures, as in prac
tical things, only the best are worth one's
time and attention.
"The home Is the center and anchor of
life for both children and parents. It
gives happiness to the one and forms the
character of the other. All after-life is
Built upon the home life. From it the
first and best and most lasting education
is drawn. The boy or girl who is taugfft
there to be obedient and affectionate and
considerate of others, to look forward to
making the best use of whatever oppor
tunity life may bring and who receives,
after leaving the home, such education
as the best schools and universities have
to offer, has all the preparation for after
life that is possible to give, and one that
should not fail. This is a method many
centuries old, but I do not know that it
has ever been improved upon.
"The best advice to a young man, as It
appears to me, Is also very old and simple
Get knowledge and understanding. Deter
mine to make the most possible of your
self by doing to the best of your power
such useful work as comes your way.
"There are no new recipes for success
in life. A good aim, diligence in learning
every detail of your business, honest, hard
work and a determination to succeed wins
every time unless crossed by some excep

Eastern Dealers Cannot Supply

Buy In England.
NEW YORK, Sept. 14. The situa
tion with regard to the proposals Is
sued by the Bureau of Equipment of
the Navy Department for supplying
coal for the battleship fleet on Its voy
age to the Pacific, says the' Journal
of Commerce, has assumed rather in
teresting shape here by the state
ments of several agents of the larger
coal-mining concerns that they would
not present bids. Their reasons are
that they have not the necessary quan
tity of coal on hand, aside from tho
quantity demanded by private con
tracts entered into.
The companies say that they have no
reserve stocks on hand amounting to
anything, and that the labor situation
is such that they cannot increase their,
mining capacity. The coal, -it was
stated, can be obtained In England, if
it is necessary to go there, but the
prices will undoubtedly be what might
be classed as "fancy."

Pacific Coast. This purpose of -the. com
panies has not been communicated to
the Secretary of the Navy. .' The Sec
retary said today that the Department
will have no difficulty in getting all the
coal desired and he believed, that, if
it was necessary to go to England for
it,, the price would be less than-: would
have to be paid In the United- Sjates.
Admiral Cowles, the Chief ;it; the -Bureau
of Equipment, says he haA no ap
prehension that the Navy. Department
will be unable to get all the ooal needed.
Sufficient supplies are already --pledged
by the railroad companies through which
the regular supply Is ootalned. " The -Department
desires that the coal be shipped
In American boats. If possible;, but -will
use foreign boats for this purpose, -if the
prices submitted by American dealers are
regarded as prohibitory.
Arrangements are being made for load
ing the supply ships Glacier and Culgea

VOLIVA AND LEWIS STRUGGLE
FOR CONTROL- OF CHURCH.
Each Tries to Win Foreign Delegates
From All Countries Rival
CHICAGO. Sept. 14. (Special.)
Rival claimants to the leadership of
Zlon and to the property In Zion City
began to line up today for the final
battle, which may decide whether Wil
bur Glen Vollva Is "to remain in con
trol or whether Overseer John A
Lewis, named by John Alexander Dowle
as his successor, shall have charge of
the property. The Vollva faction will
open ,lts conference tomorrow morning
at Zlon- City. The Lewis faction,
which will be supported by many of
the ' foreign delegates' who have been
arriving- in Zion City during the last
few days,' will hold its conference next
Sunday,' with the ultimate hope of oust
ing Vollva from the general overseer
ship. " The fate1 of either faction "depends on
the action of. the foreign delegates,
who are exceedingly anxious to know
-what has-become of their investments.

where he has been trying to select a
new site for Zion. He is the general
overseer elected by the reigning fac
tion, and he will start a campaign to
make himself permanent head of the
Lewis, being named as successor by
Dowle, will fight Vollva for the foreign
delegates and will endeavor to show
to them that he should be placed at
the head of the church. The supporters
of Lewis believe that Judge Landls,
in whose court the Zlon City estate is
now in litigation, will declare that the
conference of Vollva's supporters Is not
legal. On the other hand Vollva's sup
porters are out after the voteB of the
foreign delegates, and If they can get
them a presentation will be made to
the Federal Court to the effect that
Vollva Is the choice for permanent
head of the church.
James Hodler, overseer for Germany,
and H. G. Campbell, oversee for the
British Isles, are now in Zlon City
armed with proxies of church mem
bers. It Is said they will not vote at
Vollva's conference and that they are
in favor of Lewis. It was also rumored
that, when Vollva heard of the date of
the Lewis conference, he set his con
ference for the week preceding.
