most prominent nnd best beloved
women ot this city, this morning at

III for four days.
Mrs. Ryan had lived in Klamath
county for 25 years, during the creat
or part of the time at Fort Klamath,
where hor husband wai engaged in
stock raising and was widely known.
Mr. and Mrs. Ryan moved to this
city two or three years ngo and pur
chased a hnndsome residence, nnd she
has slnco made her homo hero. No
adequate praise can bo given to a
charactnr so noble as that possessed
by tho dead woman. She was loyal,
atfectlonato and kind, a beautiful ex
ample In nil her dally associations of
the highest and best of the Creator's
handiwork, and the many friends
who are left to mourn her will sor
row over her passing as If they had
lost a sister.
Sarah Isabella Snyder was born In
tho stnte of Ohio, June 28, 1870. In
1894 she camo to Klamath county to

at tho Klamath agency. She held her
position there for several years. On

The married life of Mr. and Mrs.
Ryan flowed smoothly over the years
that followed, nnd the bereaved hus
band today Is prostrated beneath the
forco of the cruel blow that so sud
denly deprived hi in of a patient, lov
ing and loyal holpmect, companion
' Mr. and Mrs Ryan bad no children
of their own and about throe years
ago they adopted tho small daughter
of Mrs. Ryan's sister. Tho child was
ai'ddcnly taken from them by death a
tew- weoks ago and the shoclcof bar
p.'t.slng doubtless contributed, to Mrs.
She Is survived by three sisters
and two brethers: Mrs. Paul Ken yon,
Mrs, Ooorge Speero and Clarence
Snyder o Vienna, Virginia; Mrs.
Frank S. Ilutler of Hurley, Idaho, and
C. L. Snyder of Berkeley, Cal.

ber ot years ngo.

nUDAPEST, Feb. 14. Circum
stantial detatls have been revealed
of a plot by which it is "alleged
former Emperor Charles made a
futile attempt to enter Hungary

expectation that his former subjects
would rally to support him.

PORTLAND, Fob. 14. Seventy
lineman of the Pacific Telenhone &
Telegraph company are striking to
day in response to the general order,
company headquarters reported.
Klamath Falls Is effected by tho
iinemens strike to the extent that
construction work has been aband
oned and 30 residents of Lincoln and
Ninth streets, who have been seeking
service connection since last July will
no get their phones, until the strike
lit settled. This Is according to an
nouncement by U. T. Ludden, man
ager of the local office today.
A dozen Portland linemen have
been working on tho construction ot
tho new circuit and would have had
the work completed in the next three
or tour days. When the strike came
this, morning, however, they packed
up their tools and arc preparing to
leave for Portland In the morning
and the Ninth and Lincoln street In
stallations appear to be delayed Inde
finitely. Tho two men maintained in connec
tion with the local office are not af
filiated with the union organization
and will probably remain at work,
taking care of Installation and re
pairs. COST $7000 TO
CHEYENNE, Wyo., Feb. 14. It
cost $7,000 to. discover America, the
United States general landeofflce es
timated following research work
done in8ome-6f the ancient. museums
ot Genoa. Italy; the port from which
tho memorable. expedition set sail-
Employes oftho surveybr general's
office here have received from Wash
ington a booklet published by the
department which sheds some inter
esting light on the matter of fin
ancing tho voyage of'-discovery, and
which Indicate that $7,000 was the
total amount Queen Isabella was
compelled to secure by hypothecating
her Jewelry. The valo of the
Columbus fleet is placed at some
thing like $3,000, the tiny caravels
having been appraised at $1,000
each by tho marine experts ot that
Columbus received a compensation
of J300 a year while on the voyage,
according to the musty records on
file at- Genoa, while two of his, cap
tains received $200 per annum. The
pay of the ordinary seamen of that
day was apparently nothing lavish,
as the records Indicate that the sail
ors of the expedition were paid at
tho rate ot $2.50 a month. The re
mainder ot the $7,000 was expended
for such items as ships' supplies,
food, and other Incidentals.

IN APPEAL HEARING-
District Attorney Duncan, W. S.
Wiley and W H. Rentier, local attor
neys, returned last night from Salem,
where thoy attended the hearing be-
fori thn ftiinrnmp rnnrf nf thn nnnnal
, the crcuU court of .,, county(
. QUt of th(J hootng of shone
McKendree in a shopmen's quarrel
oer grazing two years ago.
The justice of the supreme court
sat en banc to hear the oral argu
ment, allowing an hour to each side
for Its presentation. The sitting of the
full court on an appeal hearing is an
extraordinary proceeding and indi
cates either an unusually Important
proceeding or a question ot Intricate
legal points Involved.
Dlalr Thompson of Portland pres
ented the state's argument and Mr.
Renner argued the matter for the de
fense. The cour gave no Indication
when a decision might be expected,
but it Is expected that it will not be
before thirty days at least. ,
SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 14. There
Is consternation in fuel oil circles
here because the San Joaquin Light
& Power company has served notice
that it will have to stop supplying
with electric light and power all the
companies It serves for an indefinite
period if there is no rain or snow in
this district by February 24.
Tho San Joaquin valley is the great
oil-producing region of California. All
the big companies and many small
concerns are refining oil in that dis
trlct. The San Joaquin company has
served them all with electricity, both
for light and power purposes. To
have this supply cut off means a
ffreat'reductiori in the 'Output of 'fuel
oil. (The situation Is a most 'serious
one, as the state today has Only a

WASHINGTON. Feb. 14. Smart
ing under a rebuke received from.
President Wilson for calling a meet
ing of members of the cabinet dar
ing the President's Illness, Robert?
Lansing, secretary of state, today
tendered his resignation.
The President accepted the resig
nation "with appreciation," and
Lansing becomes the second secret
tary ot state to leave this administra
tion after a disagreement with the
chief executive. Many say that tha
real reason for the break goes back
even to before the United States en
tered the war, when Lansing issued
his famous statement saying that tho-.
country was being drawn near to en
trance Into the war.
More differences developed during:
Uhe peace treaty framing at Parts.
Lansing wanted the treaty and:
league covenant separated to avoid,
delay in ratification. The BuUitfc;
testimony afterwards, quoting Lans
ing as predicting failure of the treaty
was another point of difference.
Lansing thought he had precedent
for calling cabinet meetings. It had
been done before when Presidents)
Garfield and Taylor were ill.
The White House today announced,
there, would be no more cabinet
resignations as a result of the. .
Lansing incident. The appointment
of a successor is Expected soon..
