Some day Alaska's needs are going
to be reoognized This predtotiou it
based on the fight now waging for
Alaska and the headway that is be
ing made. The lower house of Con
gress has just passed the home rule
bill, which indioates that thugs are
goine forward. Former Senator John
L. Wilson, of Washintson, has just
returned from Washington, D. O..
where he ppent most uf the winter
lookirtr after various matters of in
terest to the Northwest. He was
particularly zealous in behalf of
Alaska The senator says that Prea'
ident Taft is well informed and means
wall by Alaska but Congress is slow.
As a result of the investigation in
tt the Titanic disaster it soes without
saying that a lot of very stringent
marine laws will be enacted on both
sides of the world. The Englsih
press is indignant over the inadequacy
of safeguards rerqaiied under the
laws of that country. The laws are
old and hence not in accord with mod
ern shipping conditions. The Con
gress of this country will also nroba
bly make some radical changes in the
marine laws governing ships that
carry passengers. With ample pre
cautions all of the litanio's people
might have been saved.
The banks of the Pacific Northwest
are in better condition at this time
than they have been since 1907. This
fact ia brought out by the reports
made in response to the latest oall of
the Comptroller of the Currency. In
Seattle the banks show increased de
posits of more than $6,000,000 more
than thev had at the previous call.
Similar improvement is shown all
along the line. But for the unsettled
condition growing out of the presiden
tial elocton, business would be excep
tionally active. Persons competent
to judge say that the campaign should
have no influence.

To all those interested in poisoning
squirrels, but not wishing to destroy
the birds at the same time, we call
attention to the receipt for making
poison that can be furnished them by
calling on or addressing Mr. Geo.
Mead, of Lexington. He is using a
preparation that is very successfully
killing off the squirrels, and the
birds will not eat it. The formula
contains oil of rhodium which is very
attractive to the squirrels and kan
garoo rats but the birds will not
touort it. For 4 a quantity of 15
gallons of wheat can be prepared, and
George says it is a sure shot on the
squirres. He will gladly furnish the
formula to all those interesei and it
will cost nothing. The necessary in
gredients can be procured at the

The general Conference of the
Methodist Episcopal cburch convened
in Minneapolis yesterday, with over
1000 delegates in attendance. S. E.
Notson will be there to represent the
Columbia River Conference as one
of the four lay delegates from this
district. The most important ques
tion, perhaps, to receive the serious
attention of this meeting, will be the
uniting of the various branches of
Methodism in Arrerica. Steps will
bi taken to bring this about, and this
question will have earnest and ser
ious consideration, forces being put in
motion that will ultimately bring
about this much desired union.

One of the most famous animal
trainers in tbe world is Mme. Ricardo,
who has a group of educated royal
Bengal tigers with the Al G. Bsrnes
Big Three Ring Wild Animal Circus.
She is ttiH only woman who has ever
-nccenofnlly trained these beasts,
which are the most blood-thirsty and
ferocious of all denizens of the forests
and ju gles. One of the most essen
tial features in the training of wild
animals is patience. lhis is one
characteristic in which the gentle sex
excellf. Allied with patience must
be good judgment, and one who is
patient generally has good judgment.
Trainers whose patience is limited
never last long. There comes a day
when through hasty temper or a sud
den loss of patience, the trainer says
or does some foolish thing, which
tpells his defeat as a conqueror of an
imals. There is a thrill and fascination in
the training of wild animals which
one is never successfully able to throw
off when once it is experienced. All
wild animal trainers deep down in
their hearts know that they will
eventually meet their death from the
beasts which they seek to conquer.
However, they apparently labor un
der the impression that they are ooe
of the chosen immune and go on and
on until suddenly the curtain of life
is lowered on them without warning.
