DO GREAT WRONG TO ARIZONA.
Joint Statehood With New Mexico
Condemned by President.
New York, Jan. 2. James Douglas
who is tho oxecutivo head of tho min
ing enterprises In Arizona, grouped as
tho Fiiolps, Dodgo b Go. interests, Is
quoted today regarding his vlows upon
the proposod joint otntohood of Ari
zona and Now Moxclo. Mr. Douglas
Bays, among othor things:
'To forco Arizona into a union with
Now Moxlco Is to do a groat wrong to
tho people ol tho former territory, who,
in rAclal antecedents, religious prefer
enccs and industrial interests, aro
wholly unllko tho inhabitants of Now
Moxlco. 'Now Moxico has a population
aufllclcnt to justify her admission as a
iilnglo stato. and tho peoplo of Arizona,
among whom I havo Bpent more than
25 years of my lifo, would rather wait
20 years for statehood than be joinod
to Now Moxico.
"In tho event of joint statehood, the
vast interests In Arizona would bo out
voted and so controlled in the matter of
taxation by tho greater population of
tho prcsont territory of Now Mexico,
which Is vastly loss important in tho
vnluo of Its taxable property.
"I can well understand that it may

government for tho territorial form
whenever It can ho wisely accom

InjiiBtico tbat would bo Involved in
such an unfit alliance as that of Ari

WANTS RESLRVE OF 50,000 MEN
Chaffee Proposes to Use Men Already
Trained In Army.
New York, Jan. 2. Lieutenant Gen
oral Adna It. Chaffee, chief of staff of
tho army, today expressed himself as
lu hearty accord with tho provisions of
tho army bill evolved by tho general
staff, and now in tho hands of tho sec
rotary of war.
"Matters military In this country,"
said tho general, "naturally mean tho
outlay of money, but I beliovo it will
bo worth all it coBta to strengthen the
military arm of tho government by
creating, as contemplated in tho bill,
a rcsorvo of 60,000 men. Ily creating
this force of tho men who have served
ono term of three years and havo been
honorably discharged, wo shall havo
tho benollt of tho instruction they hav
received, the proficiency they havo at
tained in marksmanship and their re
gard for discipline.
"It will bo possible, with ruch a ro
sorvo, to put tho army on a war footing
with seasoned troops. Tho reservists
would bo nnliBtod for flvo years, during
which they would be under pay and al
ways subject to a call for servico, but
in time of peaco permitted to follow the
vocations of their choice."

DARE NOT REVOLT
Little Danger of Break Between
Congress and President,
HEAR VOICE OF THE NATION
Many Senators Soon To Be Elected
and Opposition to Roosevelt
Means Political Doath.
Washington, Jan. 2.-.Two.thlrds of
tho United States senato will como Up
for re-election within tho next three
years, and of thU total 34 aro Itopubli
cans. This fact Is likely to havo con
siderable influence upon the ultimate
stand taken this winter by tho Bonato
on measures advocated by tho president
and endorsed by tho peoplo. It doeB
not necessarily mean that tho senate
will fall In lino and follow tho lead of
tho president, but it points to such ac
tion, and the wiae observers, after
studying the situation, think they can
boo tho senate supporting tho president
on tho largo issues now up for consid
eration. During the first weeka of tho eeasion
it looked very much as if tho senate
would tako issue with tho preaidont
on many important questions of legia
lation. There wore unpleasant words
regarding tlio Panama canal; there
wore murmurlnga about tho presi
dent's course regarding Santo Domin
go; and behind it all considerable
private comment upon the president's
railroad rate policy aa outlined in hie
messaKO. Manr senators have rpachnd
tho conclusion that tho president is
reckleasly usurping tho powers of con
gress to some extent, and they have dis
played evidence of UBllnesa on that ac
count. For a timo it looked as if there
would be revolt.
Hut will there bet Rather, will not
tho senate fall in line and follow the
lead of the president? It 1b a serious
thing for tho party in power to break
with ita nreaident. and nnch a mnvn in
more apt to injure thoee senators and
representatives ol the insurgent class
than it ia to injuro tho president.
What 1b moro, the party in power must
Buffer iron, any such revolt. These
things are being carefully weighed, and
there aro those who now nredict that
there will be no break between congress
and tho president, unleea it may be on
the railroad rate isEue, and even on
that isauo a compromise is more likely
than an opan rupture.
KILLED BY BOMB.
Ex-Governor Steunenberg, of Idaho,
Victim of Dastardly Outrage.
Boiee, Jan. 2. Frank Steunenberg,

YERKES 18 DEAD.
Complication of Dlsoasos Carries Off
Builder of Street Railways.
Now York, Dec. 30. Charlos T.
Yerkes, tho noted railway financier of
Chicago and London, died last night in
hia apartmente at tho Waldorf-Astoria
hotel, where ho had beon-ill for moro
than six weeks. Mr. Yerkea suffered
from a complication of dlaoaaes, grow
ing out of a Bovero cold which ho con
tracted in London early in tho, fall.
Hie condition had boon critical for ten
days paet, and tho attending physicians
gavo up all hopo several days ago, al
though members of tho family clung
tenaciously to tho belief that the ro
markablo vitality of Mr. Yerkes would
eventually pull him through. Sinco
oarly yesterday morning tho patient
had beon kopt alivo by strong stimu
lants. Charlos Tyson Yerkes was born at
Philadelphia, Pa., June 25, 1837. Tho
Yerkea family is of Dutch origin, tho
first settlers of the namo coming tc
America a few years before the arrival
of tho Quaker colony under William
Ponn. C. T. Yerkea waa educated at
tho Frionda' school and Central High
school, of hia nativo city, and began
hie business life as a clerk in tho flour
and grain commission and forwarding
house of James P. Perot & Bros., being
presented with a salary of $50 at tho
end of hia first year.
HIb latest exploit waa to revolution
ize the rapid transit system of London.
He built a system of underground elec
tric lines, which shines by contrast
with the old Metropolitan (under
ground) railway in every particular,
having pure air, clean stations, clean
and comfortable cars. He then secured
control of the Metropolitan, after a con
teat before a commission of parliament,
against J. P. Morgan, and baa been en
gaged for several years in transforming
it into an electric system.

Still Active In Moscow, Though Their
Leaders are Captured.
Moscow, Jan. 1. Tho rebels are still
active here, despite all reports to the
contrary, aa developments of tho past
few hours have plainly shown. In
order to cut off ingress to the city by
rail from Tver, tho insurgents today
placed bombs under the bridge between
that place and Moscow, literally wreck
ing the bridge.
A mob of armed men made an attack
on tho police barracka and waa defeated
with great Iobb of lifo. The police lo
cated tho meeting place of tbe Social
Revolutionary committee and arreBted
all tho members. A quantity of bomba
waa also seized. Enraged at the arrest
of the committee, a mob destroyed 200
wagonB loaded with provisions for sol
diers. Following this the prefect of
police ordered the soldiers to shoot any
one found interfering with either pro
vision wagons, tolegraph or telephone
The streets of tLo city present a

arrested the revolutionary committee
the workmen were discussing a termin

liven In this enlightened age acci
dents due to a failure to turn off the
gas properly are still numerous
enough to command attention. A
safety attachment for gas burners Is
the recent Invention of a New Jersey
innn, and If It will fulfil the claims
ndvanced It Is well worthy of atten
tion. Instead of employing a stop
cock tho attachment regulates the flow
of gas and as long as the gas Is burn
lug remnlns in that position, but
should there be any carelessness In
turning off the gas the attachment
does so automatically. Whether the
gas is purposely extinguished or ex
tinguished by accident, due to a high
wind or when blown out by an Ignor
ant person, the attachment acts by
gravity to close the plug. The at
tachment Is pivoted to one end of the
stopcock, and consists of nn arm
which extends parallel with the burn
er, and controlled by a lever. At the
top of the arm is the portion which
engages with the burner being made
In the shape of a ring connected to
two horizontal bands. When the gas
Is turned off and the attachment fn its
normal position It Is at right angles to
the burner. When the lever Is oper
ated to turn on the gas the attach
ment closes up until the top engages
with the tip of the burner. As long
as the gas Is burning the ring and bar
at tho top are caused to expand, but
should the gas become extinguished
by a gust of wind or otherwise the
band Immediately contracts and as
sumes a position which forces tho at
tachment by Its own weight and grav
ity to quickly fall to Its normal posi
tion and shut off the gas.

Ankle und Drunk the Milk.
Mlsa Marie Czerney, daughter of
prominent resident., of Bon Homme
County, S. D., hnd a thrilling adven
ture with a monster snake, as the
result of which she uarrowly escaped
death by blood poison, by stepping on
u rusty nail while striving to escape
from tho snake, says the St. Paul
The young woman, with a pall In
her hand, went to her favorite Jersey
for the purpose of doing her evening
milking. During the day the animal
hnd been picketed In a tame grass
plot, aud at the time of milking still
horo tlw picket line. The Jersey ap
peared to be greatly annoyed by tiles
and mosquitoes and changed Its posi
tion a number of times.
As the cow changed position Miss
I'zcrney would follow It up, nnd during
this operation her ankle became en
tangled as sho supposed In the picket
rope. The cow 6oemod to grow quieter
and after milking steadily for soveral
minutes Miss Czeruey became concern
ed at tho Binnll amount of milk lu the
Fearing that the pall had sprung a
leak she looked full Into It and at
tempted to ralso It, when sho was
horrified by the discovery that a mon
ste'r suako had its head in tho pall,
tho weight of the rep tlio making It
dltllcult to raise tho pall from tho
ground. The snake evidently had been
drinking the milk about as fast as
It poured Into the pall.
Greatly frightened by the discov
ery, Miss Czerney gavo a scream,
sprang to her feet and made a dash
for her home. But she had taken only
a few steps when sho made the fur
wood by hand, the process being very
tedious and requiring considerable
time and labor. Tho use of the de
vice shown here would obviously save
much of his labor. Tho clamp which
holds the felt Is made of metal, the
front and rear being plates exactly
alike. Tho upper edges of the plates
are bent Inward to give addltlonnl
stiffness, and the lower edges also bent
Inward and formed with toothed pro
jections. Tho plates constitute a Jaw
for folding and engaging tbe layers of
felt. The two plates aro connected at
points above tho center by a hori
zontal plate, the latter serving as a
head and guide for the felt which can
bo pushed up against It and be re
tained In a horizontal position. Tlio
upper portions of tho plates are held
apart by a pair of stiff springs which
surrounds two bolts connecting tho
plates. To release the felt the upper
edges of the plates are pressed to
ward each other against the power of
the springs. A handle attached to
the rear plate serves as a mode of op
eration. In use the felt Is saturated
with oil and applied to the floor very
much like a mop.
