If Serious Obstacles Develope
They Must Be Settled by
r Washington Now that the United
States Is about to complete the Pana
ma canal, many nations are interest
ing themselves in th question ol Its
fortification and have succeeded In
raising discussion of the proposition.
Tbe United States, however, Is going
ahead calmly with the plans for de
fending the canal, which are before
President Taft, and the. question, if
any serious opposition develops, must
be settled in coneresa this winter.
Tbe two problems, therefore, which '
are agitating the officials of the Unit
ed States and of other countries, are
whether the United States has the
right to fortify the canal, and wnether
It can do it successfully if it has the
Question of Right to Fortify,
There is little doubt of the ability
of the United States to fortity :h
canal effectively. Whether or not It
has the right to do so according tc
the agreement with Great Brila'a is. e
more invo'.ved question.
Apart from treaty consideration the
right of the United States cannot he
questioned.,' The United S'a3 con
trols the 10-mile strip through wV.cb
the canal runs, as much as it contrulr
the Philippine Islands. This country
spent hundreds of millions of clo''ar
to dig the waterway. The right of t'lt
United States to erect what forliftua
tiona it pleases within its own t-rrl
tory and to .defend its own possesions.
canno be. questioned.

Pueblo, Colo. A determination to
permit the greatest latitude In dis
cussion of irrigation problems, but to
keep the deliberations free from sec
tional disputes or personal grievances,
was voiced by o Dicers and delegates
here for the 18th National Irrigation
Congress, which ' opened Monday.
Tuesday the congress got down to
business. In the morning the 'con
gress discussed "Irrigation by Private
Enterprise," and in tbe afternoon Its
attention was turned to "Public Irri
gation." "
' One of the Interesting features was
the conference on Irrigation account
ing, when a dozen or 5 of tbe most
expert representatives of the United
States Reclamation Service, the large
private companies, brokerage, bond
, and banking houses took up various
phases connected with Irrigation from
the investment standpoint

By unanimous vote the board of
trustees of the University of Mississ
ippi decided to abolish Greek letter
societies from that institution.
Secretary Balllnger states that the
board of army engineers now study
ing government Irrigation projects in
the west, would not be able to report
bef6re November 1, and possibly later.
Because they have grown so fast
a number of cities on the Pacific
coast have incurred a natural suspic
ion In the census bureau that they
have made unusual and' perhaps im
proper efforts - to increase their rat
ings for population. These cities in-'
elude . Seattle, Tacoma, . Spokane,
Portland, Oakland, Berkeley, Los An

. For sixty hours the fugitive had

blt, which he shot.

tirely unpremeditated and that tbe

while he was drunk. Immediately af

ing posses passed near him several

Fall Wheat to Be Tried.
Klamath .Falls. That the farmers
of the Upper Klamath country have
come to the conclusion that they
must resort to some other method to
make a success of wheat raising, o'.'.i
er than sowing In the spring, Is shown
by the fact that a dozen of the larg
est farmers are together and
sending away for fall seed wheat with
which to make a test the coming sea
son. Tbey intend to sow several acres
of fall wheat and give It a thorough
test. . -

Cprvaills is going to start a b'g pub
licity campaign for Benion county.

ed at the convention of the Interna
tional Good Roads association here,
to have a million acres set aside in
each of the States of Oregon, Washing
ton, Idaho, Montana, Utah, Nevada,
Arizona and New Mexico by the fed
eral government."
If the government will appropriate
rights of way through the federal re
serves or dpnate a percentage of pub
lic lands for road purposes' the next
state legislature will undoubtedly ac
cept the offer of Samuel Hill, of Se
attle, to spend a million dollars on
trunk line roads. The convention pro
poses to start building a road that will
eventually connect the capitals of Wy
oming, Colorado, Idaho and Utah.

Representation of Small East
ern States May Be Cut
- Washington. A very pretty fight Is
looming up over the reapportionment
of seats in' the house of representa
tives under the new census. Already
the question . is . beginning to be dis
cussed. The point of battle Is going to come
over the proposition to so Increase the
proportion of representation that the
membership of the house will not be
Increased beyond unwleldiy bulk. If
this is done some of the eastern states
will have their 'representation serious
ly cut. They will tight desperately T
against this.
It the Democrats should succeed in
electing a majority of the next Itouse
of representatives at the November
election' It Is probable tbe question
of apportionment will be tackled by
the present congress, which Is Repub
lican at the coming session. Should
the Republicans retain control there
Is a chance the whole matter may go
over until the' new congress meets, the
interim being occupied by the party
leaders In trying to reach some agree
ment. ;
There are 391 members of congress
now, a number which admittedly Is
unwleldiy, and there is a sentiment
In favor of keeping it right there, or
even of reducing It, that it may be
more mobile In legislation, but as that
would unquestionably result In reduc
ing the representation of a number of ,
states, -some of them outside of New
England, It Is more probable the total
number will be pushed along over the
400 mark. 4
Ravage of Cholera Recognized by
. Naples. Tbe epldemio of cholera
here has attained most alarming pro
portions, and energetic measures are
to be taken by government health
health officials to combat the disease.
More than 100 new cases have been
reported to the authorities.
The government, which up to .the
present has persistently declined to
recognize the existence of the cholera,
has now admitted that the disease
which has caused such havoc within
the last two weeks is cholera of the
violent Asiatic type.
- Many other cases are described by
the health officials as gastro enteritis,
but this diagnosis Is not generally ac
cepted. Two persons, a stonemason
and a sailor, were taken from the
train on Its way from Naples to Cas
erto and Nettune. They are believed
to be suffering from cholera and were
sent to, a laazretto.

Deadwood, S. D. Tbe firing of a

When the dust had cleared away 'the
Bertolero boarding house was seen
banging over tbe edge of the crevasse,
and the Campbell Hotel's back steps

somewhat by assurance from mining
officials that there was no danger of
