The senator also has several cases in the supreme court. Senator Dolph said that he had spent the day mostly in tracing the history of the application of the state portage rail road over the land of the United States at the cascades of the Columbia, and for the privilege of using the government road there. Major Handbury, the en gineer in charge, had recommended to the chief of engineers that he be author ized to construct noon the government reservation out of the money appropria ted for the construction of the canal and locks a railroad to connect with a road to be built bv the state on either side and to be used in connection with the state road for commercial purposes, pro vided the state would transport over the road materials for the government worK The chief of engineers nad strongly rec ommended to the secretary that Major Handbury thould be authorized to do this, but in the absence of the secretary the assistant secretary of war had re ferred the matter to the judge advocate eeneral for his opinion. He had held that the secretary had no authority to authorize the expenditure for the pur pose, and that the state must build the road and should be required to make amplication to the secretary for the Driv ileges desired, and furnish a description of the right of way that the secretary mieht make the necessary regulations. The matter has now been referred, to the attorney-general and is in the hands of Jndee Phillips, assistant attorney-gen eral. Senator Dolph presented the matter fully to Judge Phillips and the attorney-general on benait oi tne state, and believes that the opinion of the judge advocate-general will be overruled, and it would be held that the secretary had authority to authorize Major Hand bury to proceed and. construct tne road. The decision is expected soon. CALL FOR NEW DESIGNS. The Dollar. Half Dollar, Quarter and Dime to Be Chanared. Washington, Arpil 6. Mr. Edward U.

IN THE SPORTING WORLD. Dempsey Was Cheered by Manager Barnes' Brother-In-Law. . Spokane Falls, April 6. Young Jack Dempsey, of California, and Charlie Webber, of St. Paul, fought before the athletic club tonight for a purse of $500, $300 to the winner and $200 to the loser. Four hundred people witnessed the fight, which was scientific and cautious in the early stages, but-spirited and hot toward the close. The men seemed to be remarkably evenly matched. In the ninth and tenth rounds Dempsey forced the fighting and pushed Webber to the ropes. In the eleventh round Webber rallied and closed Jack's right eye. From then on to the sixteenth round Webber fought .with cautious but telling tactics. When time was called for the seventeenth round Dempsey threw up the fight, several bones in both hands having been broken. This announce ment was questioned by those present, but an examination by a physician con firmed its truthfulness. The crowd dis persed with three loud cheers for Demp sey. ' - Fava Aftermath.

Superintendent Downing, of the state penitentiary, is more than uneasy over the symptoms developed by a prisoner who is a patient in the penitentiary hospital. He fears" the ailment is the dreaded leprosy. The unfortunate victim is a man named W. M. Morris, who has for several months been developing symptoms of some horri ble disease, which is now making quick inroads upon him. At first his ailment was thought to be nothing more serious than a venereal disease, but it is now thought to be leprosy. The body is rottintr. and already has holes large - enough to hide a person's hand. Morris was born in Richmond, Va., and came to the prison three and a half years ago from The Dalles. Dr. Downing will likely prohibit visitors at the prison for some time. Morris will be removed to a barn, near the prison, and there treated . until cured or dead. The decaying body emits a horrible smell, which no disin fectant can overcome. The prison of ficers are at a loss to know what course to pursue. They will try and get an or der to remove him to some hospital for treatment. Woman and Polities. If women are good and politics bad, by what logic, or even by what common sense, or what moral sense, does it come about that school education should be given over to the latter?. Regarding goodness it has been said, "Be not good merely, but be good for something." If woman is good, let her goodness be made available just here where goodness is needed.
