Mr. Kept write In par:
This water power development Is
something that, undcr'ahy proposed
legislation, will tun atUcast fifty
.years, , and .Under, the Hhlolda bill as
it Is being founght out in the Senate,
will run for an lndefluito time un-
.less upset. by.ro volution or cuted.by
the sovereign power of taxation.
The bill as It Is being paused In
the Senate will be extremely vicious,
and what amendments we can secure
by. conference with the House com
mittco are unknown.. Unless. some
one in the Administration takes
strong ground, there is every chanco
that nothing at all will bo dono, and
that the waters will go to waste
simply because some of us feel that
a waste for a year or two Is better
than to sacrifice all public rights
practically in perpetuity.
I know of no greater service that
can be Immediately rendered by tho
Secretary of War than the consider
ation of the control of water power
on navigable streams, which comes
Immediately undor his Jurisdiction,
and It will be my pleasure to put hm
in touch with tho best authorities.
We are making a light against
people who thoroughly realize the
i immense fortunes to bo made out of
control of these, our common assets

Thu last paragraph of Mr. Kent's let
ter was an appear for the President to
Indicate publicly that ho would veto
such a measure as the Shlolds bill; and
the President's reply Is construed an
conveying about as dlrect'an Indication
as could well ho expected from the
White House. His letter said:
Thank you for your letter of March
7. You may be sure that I will call
the 'attention of the new Secretary
of war to the waher power question
at the earliest possible moment, for
you know, I sm sure, my deep and
genuine Interest In It. I agree with
you that It Is better to let the water
power run to wanto than to scttlo
tho question of the use of It In tho
wrong way. I am watching tho
progress of legislation with a great
deal of anxiety.
In the last session of Congress thn
President made n statement on thin
same subject, which wan uacd, though
only privately, with much effect to pre
ent the passage of what was consider
ed a dangerous water power bill at

Whether a convicted hUabund-klll-cr
shall break North Carolina's long
record of no capital punln)iment for
women, will be decided Monday when
Governor Craig will hear appeals or
clemency for Mrs. Ida. Bell Warren.
Unless he grants mercy, Mrs. War
ren and Samuel Crlsty. with whom
she once live as his wife, will die In"
tho electric chair March SI for the
murder of James G. Warren.
Governor Craig refuses to give the
slightest Intimation whether-the ap
peals for mercy by women's clubs, or
the State supreme court's opinion
of the murder as the most brutal that
ever came tq its notice, has most In
fluenced him. ,
Mrs. Warren's own story is that aho
chloroformed her husband 'While he
slept, and that Crlsty 'strangled him.
Then Crlsty and Mrs. Waxren'a son-ln-
law, mutilated the dead man's head so
it could not be recognized, and burled
It In a creek where It was found.
When Mrs. Warren and Crlsty saw It
In a morgue, they declared they could
not Identify It, but Warren's family did
later, and the trial resulted.
Appeals for' Mrs. Warren's life have
been made by the Antl-Caplta! Punish
ment League and by numerous women'
orrunlsatlons, the latter basing their
appeal on sex.

Tho refusal of the ?ope to sanction
this marrlago appears on the face of
a; to put a stumbling block to the pro
posed strengthening of the Austro-Hun-garlan
bonds by a new marriage.
When King Ferdinand, as crown
prince, married Princess Marie-Louise
or iJourbon-Parma. n 1833, the family
of 'tho princess Insisted on the condi
tion that the Issuo of the marrlnir. hn
brought up in the Roman Catholic
ralth. A constitutional amendment to
this effect was passed by the Bulgarian
In 1836, however, the King's eldest son
and heir. Prince Boris, then only two
.enra old. was "converted" to the Or
thodox faith, the Orthodox Gree:c
Church bolug the national faith of Bul
garia. This was done to effect a recon
ciliation between Bulgaria and Russia.
The rendition stipulated bv the family
of King Ferdinand's first -wife In marry
ing tho King did not apply to Prince
Boris. Thoro arc no children from tho
second marriage. '
Curlouslv enough, the chief object of
tho vnunt; pilnso's convention, which
had been a marriage between him and
the Grand Duchess Olga, daughter of
Cxar Nicholas, had "fallen through."
The marrlago was to be announced at
King Ferdinand's coronation In 191'. hut
never was. Tho chief reason is be
lieved to have befn the refusal of tho
Czar's daughter lo marry Boris, the
grnnd duchess, according to gcne)al re
port, having been In love with tho
Utand Dul, Dlinitrl.
With tho failure of this marriage be
gan tho gradual estrangement between
Bulgaria and Russia.
