Body Immersed In Alcohol. I
WASHINGTON, April 14. The state
department Teeeived a Cablegram from
Ambassador Porter at .Paris today
which announced that after years or
uneeasing seareh the remains of Jo$n
Paul Jones, the father of the Ameri
can navy, had been found and identi
fied.' Hundreds of coffins have been
examined, bnt not until Wednesday
wm the massive easket holding the re
mains of the admiral located. The
leaden coffin was opened , in the pres
ence of General sorter. Colonel Bailey
Blanebard and Engineer Weis, who
have been directing the excavations.
: The body, was well preserved, owing
to its being immerse, in alcohol. It
was wrapped in a sheet packed with
straw and hay. Tholie present were
struck with the resemblance the head
bore to the medallions and bust of the
admiral. The coffin was taken to a
medical school, here. a most minute
investigation by 1 experts substantiated
the fact that the long lost body of the
great admiral had been finally brought
to light. Identification is complete in
every particular. The remains are in
a remarkable state of preservation. ?
It is probable that a recommenda
tion will be made to congress at the
next session looking to Ambassador
Porter's reimbursement. The remains
of John Paul Jones are to be brought
here and interred in the national cem
etery at Arlington. It is likely that
tbe transfer will be made 'the occasion
of an interesting demonstration. It is
frobable that Secretary of the Navy
lorton will send a battleship to
France to bring the body home.

PORTLAND, ApnT 14. Various
cities in the, Pacific northwest are art
ranging 'to send the graduating classes
of their high schools to the Lewis and
Clark exposition, opening in Portland
June 1. . Thus is the value of an inter
national exposition as an adjunct to
education recognized. The graduates
will be afforded an excellent opportu
nity, not only to study the educational
work of other states and foreign coun
tries, but to see the products of civili
sation tire worl.l over and to observe
the customs and habits of life of many

Lewis and CTark centennial shows con

were productive of results that ex
ceeded tbe most sanguine expectations
of their promoters. . The establishment
of the School for Industrial Art at the
South JCensington museum was the re
. suit of the Crystal Palace exposition
in London in 1851: The educational ex

Aside from the educational features
of the Lewis and Clark exposition, the
visiting students will find much to sup

communities in the Pacific northwest
to send beir high school graduates to

a close one, as the jndges deliberated
for several minuter before rendering
their verdict. The question for debate
was: "Resolved, That the Policy "of

Eugene team, composed of Raymond
Kerr, Ross Chamberlain and Earl

the Salem team, consisting of Rex

Phillips, the negative. Mncb interest
and "enthusiasm was displayed by tbe
large audience in attendance and each

Water Users Prepared to Bay at

KLAMATH FALLS, Or., April 15.
N. Hawkins, president of the Klamath
Canal company, refused the offer of the
Klamath Water-Users ' association of
approximately $100,000 for the Klam
ath Canal company's property at a con
ference held yesterday afternoon be

ment engineers of the reclamation serv
ice and representatives from the two
President Hawkins offered the entire
canal property to the government for
$250,000. The water-users would allow
only actual cost of construction and
what they consider a reasonable bonus.
This leaves the government and 'the
Klamath Canal company apparenty as
far apart as ever oh the ' question of
rights in the Klamath -government irri
The consulting government engineer
board, which consists of J. B. Lippm
cott, W. If. Sanders, C. H. Ensign, and
Joseph Jacobs, after visiting various
sections of the country connected with
the Klamath project and conferences
with various interested parties here,
has gone partially into tbe estimates,
but has -found its time here will be
too limited to complete the estimates.
It is necessary for the board to be in
Yuma on April 2L On that account,
and on account of Engineer Wisner's
illness in Los Angeles, the board will
complete its work in in at town.
The board, while here-, found noth
ing to materially change the publicly
expressed views of the engineers of the
service in regard to the Klamath proj
ect. After work is completed in Los
Angeles the latter part of this month,
the report pi the board will be Imme
diately xorwarued to the chief engi
neer, and very soon after the general
findings will be made public.
The engineers say they regret Jbeing
unable to give out any, figures at pres
ents to the total cost, or the cost per
acre, because their work will not be
completed while here, and because it
would be contrary to the regulations to
make any material findings previous to
tne submission of tae report to the
cnier engineer. All the engineers find
the project a very interesting one, and
one that is entirely feasible from an
engineering standpoint. .
During the remainder of the stav

VIENNA. April 15. No little rvm.
pathy has been aroused by . the tragic
death simultaneously of three sisters
belonging to an ancient and highly
honored Austrian 'familv. the Bar-
onesses Louise, Cresina and Augusta
Zrnn von Zinnenburg, the eldest being
70 years of age. For many years they
have lived at Klarenfurt. tbe eanil&l
of Corinthia, in extremely indigent cir
cumstances, gaining a precarious liveli
hood by1 kntting aid fancy work.
The Baroness Cresina died this week
after long suffering; scarcely was she
laid out when her two sisters. Louise
and Augusta, standing on either side
of the bier, shot themselves with re
volvers at one and the same moment.
both falling beside Cresina, where their
bodies were subsequently found. Each
had fired with determined aim at her
temple, and death had been instaneous.
In a note found in the death cham
ber it was stated that the three sisters
had sworn together that in the event
of the death of one the two others
would not be divided frem her. The
Zinnenburg family, which had been
rich landowners in Bohemia sinee the
twelfth century, is now extinct. - '

while, its title indicated that it was

Judge Crawford has practically come

The name of this new corporation is

art, will be featured to advantage, as
Well as numerous games with which
the people of tbe west are almost un
familiar. Notable among the various
contests will be the La Crosse matches.
The athletic events at the exposition
will afford the people of tUis section
an opportunity to witness spienuiu
feats of physical manhood never before
seen on the Pacifie coast. The manage
ment of the exposition has arranged
for attractions not any less pretentious
than those of the fU. Louis World's
fair. The events will be open to all
associations under the direction of the
Multnomah Amateur Athletic club.
Intercollegiate events possibly will
prove more popular than any, in so far
as many colleges' throughout the coun
try are preparing to send, their crack
aggregations of athletic prodigies.
Men who have astounded the world
witB remarkable records, particularly
in track and field meets, will partici

Tbe .reason assigned is tbe riotous con

would involve a five-mile parade of
12,000 workmen directly through that
part-of the city. The police insisted
that; the interment take place in the
cemetery near the works, but the work
men 'refused and, it is said, will en
