SCIENTIST EXPERIMENTS TO
SOLVE THE ORIGIN OP LIFE
Attempts the Fertilization of Mollusk
Eggs But Believes that Process la
of a Chemical Nature.
Berkeley, Cl., Nov. 24.-Bit by bit,
Professor Jaoiue Loeb, the scientist, la
completing the set of experiment into
the secret of the origin of life, and it ia
hoped will eventually make clear the
life problem. Today he added another
to the many step already Uken in this
direction, when he isaaed an announce
ment regarding chemical method he haa
employed in maturing eggs of a mollusk,
the IiOttia Gigantea.
The result of Professor Loeb'a experi
ment with these eggs of the mollusk
have caused him to revise theories pre
viously held. The experiment include
tbe treating of the effect of hypertonic
see. water upon mollusk eggs, with a
view to determining how fertilization
miirtit be accomplished and also to de
termine whether the action of the sea
water and it effect upon the egg are of
a Dhvsicel or a chemical" nature. Profes
sor Loeb formerly believed the aettoa
was of a physical character, but now re
vie this opinion. Scientista are watch
ing hi work with interest.

Warsaw, Nov. 24. Persistent rumors
ih.t the Manchurian army of Russia
haa revolted again are in circulation.
Private dispatches received here state
that the mutineers have completely
burned Harbin after rioting and sacking
the place. The messages say that the r?
volt has attained widespread prof,-i.
tions and that soldier ordered to quell
the rioter refused to fire upon their
brethren in arms.
The Peasants' Congress now In ses
sion here today decided to appeal to the
people, "requesting them not to pay any
more tax until all demand for reiorra
had been fully granted. The effect of the
measure is to bring about a aituation
similar to that which exists in Hungary,
where all revenue has been cut off from
the Government, Resolutions were
passed by the Congress condemning the
Poland ia b a state of turmol and
rebellious bands are burning: governs
ment buildings and rioting, in many dis
tricts cutting down state forests, clos

Seattle, Nov. 24. Investigation today
shows that George Edwards Adams, ar
rested last night for stealing gold dust
from the United States assay office, baa
been pilfering from bags of miners, left
in his care since before 1903, and that
in all he ha stolen perhaps $200,000.
It has been ascertained also, that once
before 'Adam waa in similar trouble,""
being accused of the theft of several
hundred dollars from tbe Massachusetts
Mutual Life Insurance Company, of
which he waa state cashier. This theft
waa compromised by Adams friends,
who reimbursed the company. Adams
was not prosecuted. The same bonding
company which waa on hi bond while
he waa employed by the insurance com
pany, also guaranteed him when he took
employment in the assay office.
Wing Kaew About It
A jeculiar feature is that Fred A.
Wing, now superintendent of the assay
office, wa the state agent for the Mas
sachusetts Mutual ari knew of Adams
stealing. He condones the employment
of Adams in the assay office by stating
that he believed Adams had reformed.
