or part of the time at Fort Klamath,
where her husband was engaged In
stock raising and was widely known.
Mr. and Mrs. Ryan moved to this
city two or three years ago and pur
chased a handsome residence and she
has since made ber home here. No
adequate pra'lsi! can bo given to a
character so noble as that possessed
by the dead woman. She was loyal,
affectionate and kind, a beautiful ex
ample in all her dally associations of
tbo highest und best of the Creator's
handiwork, and the many friends
who aro left to mourn her will sor
row ovor her passing as It they had
lost a slater.

tho state of Ohio, June 28, 1870. In
1894 she came to Klamath county to

Monro, nt that time county Judge.
Tho married life of Mr. and Mrs,
Ryan flowed smoothly over the years
thut followed, nnd tho bereaved bus
band today Is prostrated beneath tho
force of the cruel blow that so sud
denly deprived him of a patient, lov
ing nnd loyal helpmeet, companion
Mr. and Mrs. Ryan had no children
of their own and about threo years
ago they adopted tho small daughter
o Mrs. Rynn's sister. Tho child was
si'ddenly taken from them by death a
fow weoks ago and. the shock of her
p.irslng doubtless contributed to Mrs.
She is survived by three sisters

Snydor of Vienna, Virginia; Mrs.
Frank S. llutler of Hurley, Idaho, and
C. L. Snyder of Derkoley, Cal.

PORTLAND, Feb. 14. Seventy
lineman of tho Pacific Telephone tc
Telegraph company are striking to
day in response to the general order,
company headquarters reported.
Klamath Falls is effected by the
llnemens 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
not get their phones, until the strike
Is settled. This is according to an
nouncement by K. T. Ludden, man
ager of the local office today.
A dozen Portland linemen have!
been working on tho construction of
tbo new circuit and would have had
the work completed in the next three
or four days. When the strike came
this morning', however, they packed
up their tools and are 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 tho local office aro 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 land office es
timated following research work
done In some of the ancient museums
of Genoa, Italy, the port from which
the memorable expedition set sail.
Employes of the surveyor 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 valine of tho
Columbus fleet is placed at some
thing like $3,000, the tiny caravels
having been appraised at $1,000
each by the marine experts of that
Columbus received a compensation
of $300 a year while on the voyage,
according to tho musty records on
flic 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,
03 tho records indicate that the sail
ors ot tho expedition wero paid at
tho rate of $2.50 a month. The re
mainder ot tho $7,000 was expended
tor such Items as ships' supplies,
food, and other incidentals.

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb 14 -Theredeay JQ ratlflcaUoPn. The .
is consternation in fuel oil
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.
The 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 flight and power purposes. To
have this supply cut off means a
great reduction In the output of fuel
oil. The situation is a most serious
one, as the state today ''has only a
threo months' supply of oil on hand.
Without electric power, the com
panies will have to resort to the old
method of using steam and coal.
This is a slow process and the com
panies realize they cannot begin to
keep up with the demand. ' This
notice to cut off the supply ot elec
tricity by the power company will
seriously affect the operations ot
such concerns as the Standard Oil,
Associated Oil company. Union Oil
and the Shell companies. The pre
vailing drouth will tend, it is sajd,
to greatly advance the price of oil

WASHINGTON. Feb. 14. Smart
ing under a rebuke received from.
President Wilson for calling a meet
ing of members ot the cabinet dur
ing the President's illness, Robert
Lansing, secretary of state, today
tendered his resignation.
The President accepted the reals
nation "with appreciation." and
Lansing becomes the second secre
tary of state to leave this administra
tion after a- disagreement with the
chief executive. Many say that the
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 that
country was being drawn near to en
trance into the war. '
More differences developed during
the peace treaty framing at Paris.
Lansing wanted the treaty and
1 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 HI.
The White House today announced
there would be no more cabinet
resignations as a result ' of the.
Lansing incident. The appointment
of a successor la expected, soon.
John W. 'Davis, ambassador to Lon
don, and under-se.cretary Polk are
being discussed, for the position. f,
Secretary Lane - declared that ,h
considered himself ''Justas much re
sponsible" as Lansing for calling the
cabinet meetings. He said that
Lansing secured' his approval and the
approval of other members also.
j Secretary Lane said., "We all
thought that the meetings were &
I good thing. Dr.' Grayson often at
tended and transmitted messages to
the President regarding the questions
which were discUsse.d. TheAquestIon3
ot the constitutionality ot the meet
ings was never discussed In any way."
