Several letters have been received by
the president opposing Hahn's appoint

of the postofflce department is now in
Astoria. It is very probable that
Hahn's appointment will be with
drawn. Senator Fulton leaves for home
tonight, but made no statement ex

with the president. It is probable that
Senator Fulton will recommend some

Predicted That Man Will Be Extermi
nated From th Earth in Thre Mil
lion Year and That It Will Only Be
Inhabited by th Birds of th Air.
Chicago, March IS. The human
race will be extinct on this earth in
the course of a few million years, ac
cording to Prof, Samuel Wllllston, pro
fessor of paleontology at the Univer
sity of Chicago. While lecturing on
the future of the earth' Inhabitants
Prof. Wllllston declared that, In his
opinion, instead of men at this future
date, which he told the student would
not come for something like 3,000,
000 years, the earth will be dominated
"It will only be a natural course of
events that will, ultimately drive men
from the dominant sphere on earth,"
said Prof. Williston. "First came the
fished The)( were dominant for a
while' and had to give way to the am
phibians. Then came the reptiles and
soon they yielded to the mammals
Now the mammals are weakening and
the newest class, the birds, is growing
to prominence and in time, I incere1y
believe, will be the dominant inhabit-
ant of the earth.
"Each of these classes developed to
th highest degree of specialization
and then began to wane. Man is de
celoped to the highest degree now and
little more can be expected of him."
Prof. Willlson Is considered one of
the leading expert In paleontology in
thl country , and has written several
