President Bryan Compares Schools
With Those of Europft.
President K, A. Bryan, of tho Wash
V.igton Slate college, has returned from
his lo ir of the Knropran capllpl, and
at pretent I preparing a series of lec
tures, the subject of which ho gathered
while abroad. President Drjnn'a trip
was something In the nature of an In
vesication of modern education, both
technical and classical, as found in the
mort advanced and greatest educational
Institutions of nations. Before leaving
America he visited several of America's
most famous institutions, and both In
Kogland and on the continent called at
the world's best known centers of learn
ing. Jilt conclusions were recently
stated as follows:
"I believe the time Is not remotely
distant when Uie educational Institu
tions of the Weit, meaning the western
part of the United States, will be fully
as efficient, and as famed as the beat
universities and colleges of tho old
world. The tremendous fund of natu
ral wealth In Western states, the rapid
development cow In progress, the geo
graphical position with reference to the
new commercial empire cf the Pacific,
and the wide-awake natnre of Wettern
people nfake these things certain.
Nover again will men have a Wettern
frontier to look to when seeking new
homes for the cxpamlon of new Ideas.
Humanity has made Its path around the
globe, and now, at tlie Journey'a end,
the Pacific coast, must there be an up
building, and Intensive, rather than ex
tensive, development of all Institu
tions. What this means to tho people
of the West they do not at picjent fully
comprehend. Rut the progres ol
events nowadays Is very rapid, and the
work of these new forces will be evi
dent within only a few year."
Old Superstition Refuted,
Or J. I. Aihlock. Wuhlnrton SUU CeUt
The results of an experiment, which
for the past fifteen years has been In
progress at tho state experiment sta
tion, completely refutes th old super
stition that a cold Jsnnary and Febru
ary is apt to be followed by a warts
March and April, or that one year of
an average low temperature is pt to
bo followed by a year In which the
temperature will average higher.
rrofesscr George Severance now bis
the compilation of the weather data In
.charge, and state the summatltatlon
of results as follows:
"For the past fifteen years the ex
periment station has kept a close rec
ord of the temperature of ea:h day of
Uie year, striking an average between
the temperature of morning and oven
Ing, which we call the 'mean tempera
tore.' Having kept tho record for a
month the custom has then bees lo get
the average 'mean' for the entire
month. In thla way we have com
lrod the temperatures of each period
of January and February with the tem
perature ot the following March and
April periods for the past fifteen years,
and wo tind that ths variations from
the rule for determining what tho tem
perature ot spring will bo by the tern
peratnre of winter, of one year by aver
aging the tomperaturo of another, are
so frequent that it is proved that the
weather ot one year or month, or sev
eral months, is absolutely no Index to
what subsequent temperatures will be."

FIGHTS IMRQ TO THE VEIY LAST
Assailant Slain by Chief After Wound
ing Four Persons Dead Man
Had Plotted Lens;.
Chlcago,3March 3. The woald-be
assassin of Chief ot Police George M.
Shlppy was laat night Identified as Lax
arna Avcrbueh, a Russian stndent of
presumably anarcblstlc tendencies.
Chief Shlppy, attacked In bis home,
No. 31 Lincoln place, at 0:30 a. m.
ycsteiday by Averboch, shot and killed
the latter, but rot until his assailant
bad stabbed blm In the arm and shot
and dangerously wounded Harry Shlp
py, a son of the pdlico ofllclal, and had
wonnded James Foley, a member of
tho police department detailed aa
driver for his superior.
The younger Shlppy was aald at a
late hour last night to have a good
chance of recovery. Neither of the)
other men was dangerously hurt.
.Averbuch's attempt upon the clilel's
life was tbo fourth effort ho had read
to accomplish his purpose. Twice on
Sunday he visited the boore, but was
unsuccessful in finding bis intended
victim at home. At 7 o'clock yesterday
morning he tnado hla third appearance,
but waa informed by a servant that the
chief could not bo aeen till 0 o'clock.
When he returned at 0 o'clock the chief
was on tne point of leaving lor nts
office. When admlted at the front door
Averboch banded tho chief an envelope)
tearing bis name and address, but th
latter, having heard ot tksjjjprevioea
visits to his borne, stwpevied that
something was wrong and seised him
by the arms. The envelope which was
found later to be only a ruse to gala
entrance, contained only a blank sheet
ol paper. The quickness with which
tbe chief acted upon his smfpkkm
doubt lees saved hi Ufa. Averboch,
though alight In build, proved In his
desperation almoet a match for the
chief, who la much larger, and tho
latter fonnd himself unable to. hold
fats assailant and search him for weap
ons at the saooo time. He therefore
called to; his wife, who was in tbe next
room, asking her to ascertain whether
the man nsd a weapon In his pockets.
Mrs. Shlppy discovered a revolver in
Averboch' pocket, but before she could
remove It he struggled loots from tho
grasp of the chief and, drawing a long
knife, stabbed be chief in the aro.
Thereupon tbo chief grappled again
with his assailant, whodiewa revolver.
At that moment Hairy Shlppy, 19
years old, came rushing down the stair
way to his father's aid. Averboch fired
two shots, one ot which struck young;
6hippy, who fell seriously wounded.
Before Avcrbnch could fire again, Jamea
Foley, the chief's driver, attracted by
tbe shooting, ran to the door and seised
Avoibuch, The aeiaesin struggled
loose from the embrace and fired a.
shot, which pierced Foley's hand.
Thereupon both Mr. Foley and Mr.
Shlppy emptied their revolvers Into
Averbuch'a body. Ono bullet entered
tbe man's breast near the heart and
another passed through his head. The
revolver dropped from his fingers and
be died, without a groan.

Washington, March 3. -Tho mem

the manifbst unfriendliness shown by
the Republican leaders In the hours

that the opposition of the "strong men"

to get aa much money aa Uiey really

When the eenato pasted the Pllea
