Increase of acreage this year the crop
was expected by statistician, to break
previous records, but frost report, have
been frequent on the Chicago Board of
Trade, and caused th. price, to flutter.
Now come, the report of Col. A D.
Davidson, an Intimate aasocUte of
President William McKemtie, of the Ca
nadian Northern luilway, uot only de
nying that there lias been frost but
giving out the ultimate of crop. Ills
report saysi "I find that the province
of Saskatchewan gives promiae(of rais
ing the best crop in her history. The
weather has been vem favorable for all
grdwhig crops and aftd making an ex
tensive tour through these three prov
inces, I estimate tbo wheat crop of 1007
t 05,000,000. The crops in Manitoba
have made wonderful progre. during
the last, three or four weeks. By cov
ering niat of the country iu a motor
car I had abundant opportunity to view
th. situation close at band." This re
port give promise of another year ofj
prosperity for 200,000 farmers from Illi
nois, Iowa, Wisconsin, Minnesota and
the Dakota, who are now grain growers
Canadian Northern began construction
work a few year, ago, but three set
tlers wire found in one strip 160 mile,
long; there are now, according to this
report, 220,000 acre, in crop in the aame
Treasury officials are confronted by
a puzzle that ia keeping them awak. o1
nights, and Assistant Secretary James
Reynolds daily is discovering additional
gray hair, in his thatch. It has to do
with the "conscience fund." Some years
ago an old soldier in a Middle Western
State w compelled to refund (430
which be had drawn a. back pension,
because the Pension Commissioner un
officially declared he was not entitled to
it. Shortly after the Pension Bureau
revised the decision. The $430, how
ever, had disappeared into the "con
science fund" and under th. law it can
not be recovered except bp special act
of Congress. Whether Congress will do
this or no, remains to be seen, but in
Dr. Roscnburg will give consultations
and examination free.

were gone, positively declined to give
out for publication their destination 01

will tell. '. '.' 1 ';
Chief Wappenstein was at hi. desk
earlier than usual this morning and de
nied himself to several callers, for the
reason that he was tlmost momentarily
expecting to hear some word from his
men and did not want to be distrubed.
If th information that called the po
licemen away Is found to be" good, it Is
believed that before nightfall the sus
pected men will be in custody. The
police have dropped all theories besides
the one that M. Covington was killed
In the Covington rooms t the Keswick,
at Ninth avenue and Stewart streets,
some time between Tuesday afternoon,
September3, and Thursday night, Sep
The police have information from one
man that Covington was seen at First
avenue and Pike streets on the morning
of September 12, and that BurUson
was seen in the city on the following
day. Information received by the po
lice last night was that both Bnrlison
and Covington were Ken In Everett
within the last week. Burlison b said
to have a brother at Vancouver, B. (L,
and there is some reason to believe thai
he might attempt to go there.

SEATTLE, Sept. 2.-Jreat mystery
existed at police headquarters thia morn

the station of from two to five plain
clothe, policemen, whe are said to have
left the city before daybreak today to
capture Charles Burlison and Frank Cov.

body was found in a trunk on the beach

Although- Secretary- Metcalf- has
pointedly denied them, the rumors that
he is to withdraw from the head of the
Navy Department will not down. Ever
since the clash of statement made bv Lea" Artoria t p. m.. arrive Portland p. m.
the Cecretary and Mr. Loeb, concerning
the movements of the battleship fleet,
these reports have been persistent. It
will be remembered that' Mr. Metcalf
annomu-ed that it had been definitely
determined to send the fleet to Pacific
waters while Mr. Loeb declared as em
phatically that no decision has been'
reached. For a time relations between
the, two officials were decidely strained,
and the fact that President Roosevelt
refused to be drawn into the rjatter
took this inaction on the part of the
President as proof that Mr. Loeb's pecul
iar affront, if the not insquired, had at
least the approval of Mr. Roosevelt.
There is every reason to believe that
there is considerable foundation for the
rumors. It would not be a greats sur
prise of the California withdrew from
tho Cabinet before Congress meets.
