i Boise, Ida., Sept II. Dominated by
i ; the government reclamation officials,
'academic and exclusive, are the words
t wllh which Alexander McPherson of
r-Twln Falls gums up the recent Na-
tlonal Irrigation congress held at 8ac
, ramento. Mr. McPherson represented
-' the Twin Falls Irrgiatlon tract at the
5 congress and he returns to Idaho but
"little aatisfled with the results of the
I icongress and the development of lr
X irlgallon as he found It in California.
"Th. congress was controlled by the
reclamation officials," asserts Mr. Mc-
. Pherson, "and any attempt to carry out
the widely advertised debate upon the
f policy of the reclamation service was
f promptly throttled. Representatives of
l private corporations Interested In Irrl
i j, gatlon were squelched whenever they
'inade a move. In my estimation the lr-
.rigation congress was a conclave of
j' government officials and employes. The
, papers read were Interesting, but of llt
f.tle practical value. It was plainly ln
'. dlcated that the government was not In
a position to do more than complete tho
, present projects. Not a single repre
sentative or Idaho was given a place
on the printed program, save Governor
' Gooding and he was absent. After a
protest Mr. Brady of Pocatello and my-
' , aeir were given iu minutes eacn. i
' found that California capitalists were
' very much dissatisfied with labor con
I dltlons there and looking elsewhere for
fields of Investment. I found that
many of the rivers and ditches in Call
; fornla were dry and water is not avail
v .able when most needed. We waste more
water yearly at Twin Falls than Is
available at present In the whole state

6eattle, Sept. It. The National Gro
cers' association will put up a sleeag
fight to defeat the proposed parcel post
law, according to John A. Qreen, na
tional secretary of the grocers, who
spoke last night at the meeting of the
Washington State .Orocers' association.
Mr. Green stated that If the parcel post
law Is passed It will ruin the retail
business In the United States. He said
that one of the first effects would he
that the mall order business of ths
large eastern stores would considerably
decreaee the retail bualness In the
smaller towns. :
Mr. Green also urged the repeal of
the present bankruptcy law, unless It
can be amended In such a way as to
refuse exemption of any bills for the
necessities of life below 1500. I
In all probability the national conven- '
tlon of the grocers in 1H09 will be held
In Seattle, the delegates yesterday fa
vorlng such a plan.

Hambleton was repairing the fence 1
which had been blown down by a storm. .
when Mrs. Hambleton passed down the
road. He called to her, saying that he
would like to speak to her. She went '
over where he was working and he
asked Iter why she had torn hla fence i
down, prefacing his question with an
oath. She replied that she had not, but 1
that the wind had blown It down.
After a little further conversation
Mrs. Hambleton started on down the ;
road to one of the neighbors and he ac- !
companled he. While walking along he j
asked her when she was going to get off i
of the place, and she replied when she
had secured what belonged to her. With i
an oath he said that If she did not leave .
by a certain date he would drag her off.
She retorted that when he got ready to
drag her Off for him to begin. He then
struck her and she faced him, warning ;
him not to touch her again. He at- I
tempted to hit her the second time when ,
she drew a revolver and shot him In the
head, the bullet entering just over the ,
left eye. Hambleton fell forward In the
road without moving from his tracks.
Mrs. Hambleton notified a neighbor of '
what had happened and that afternoon
was taken in charge by tjie sheriff and :
has been In custody ever since. j
Attorneys Charles F. Hyde and John !
L. Rand, who will defend Mrs. Hamble
ton. have been in the neighborhood
where the shooting occurred securing 1
testimony to show that Hambleton had i
abused, maltreated and threatened his !
wife at various times in the past and '
had at one time inflicted bodily punish- j
ment upon ner.
The conjugal life of the unfortunate j
woman has been anything but harmon
ious. About 14 years ago she and her
husband separated and remained apart
for about six years when he came to her
and desired her to return to the ranch
with him to take care of the children, ,
a boy and a girl. After the reconcilia
tion another boy was born to them and
was at home at the time the tragedy
occurred. The second trial of domestic
life did not prove any more peaceful !
than the first and Mrs. Hamhleton be
gan divorce proceedings the first of the 1
year. The court Issued a liecree giving
her charge of the minor children and a j
stipulated Income. Hambleton was to
have the real estate.
When starting from the house Mrs. !
Hambleton did not take the gun with
her. but her daughter called her back
and told her to take it as she was going !
away and did not want to leave it where j
the young child could get his hands on
it. Mrs. Hambleton took it with her i
and claims that she used it in self de- j
fense. The sentiment of the people in
the neighborhood is in favor of the i
woman and it is the general expectation
that she will be acquitted.

Speaking of coffee, a nurse of Wilkes
Barre, Pa., writes: "I used to drink
' Strong coffee myself, and suffered
- greatly from headaches and indigestion.
V While on rinlt to my brothers I had a

for they drank It , altogether In place of
' ordinary coffee. In two weeks after
using Postura I found I was much

duced its depositors' claims by that
amount. The receiver is said to have
favored the proposition, but his at
torney, Joseph Bimon, made objections
and the California men dropped a plan
that would have proved to be one of
the most unique In department store ad
vertising. Th'ilr plan was to advertise that they
would accept the accounts of all deposi
tors for sums not exceeding 12$ as
cash at the store, and deliver goods to
that amount. In this manner they
would have reaped an Immense adver
tisement at a cost of only a few thous
and dollars, and disposed of a consider
able part of the stock at normal prices,
while the deposit accounts would have
been made good upon reorganisation of
Money Was Free.
There have been many explanations
of the bank's extraordinary loans to the
Golden Eagle store, and It Is freely as
serted that Morris was personally in
terested In the transactions or In the
business of the store. An officer of
the bank said this morning that sev
eral months ago Morris attempted to
secure an Interest In the store, but waa
unsuccessful. It Is asserted also that
Low it, the manager of the store, had
loaned money to Morris, presumably
from the money advanced by the bank
to the store.
One of the many rumors current is
that Morris was personally interested in
the City Messenger company, which bor
rowed $40,000 from the bank. This is
3enied, however, by W. H. Moore, and
the loan appears to have been secured
oy auiiicieni collateral.
Another concern in which Morris Is
reputed to hold un InleTWt Is the Pio
neer Auto company, which appears in
the receiver's statement as a borrower
from the bank to the tune of $2,600,
no collateral having been required.
Morris was formerly secretary and
afterwards vice-president of the Order
of Washington, which Owes the bank
-over $32,000. According to Receiver
Ievlln the loans are unsecured, though
