With not a single change in t
faculty of 14 members of the en[
neering teaching force and wi
considerable increase and improv
ment in shop facilities, the enginee
ing department begins the new se
sion's work in fine trim, accordir
to Prof. S. B. Earle, director of tl
department. In the way of increast
and improved shop facilities, the d
partment constructed during tl
summer vacation a new wood-she
of ample size by the erection of
second-story of the wing of th
building, which has always been use
as the commercial woodshop. Thi
new woodshop provides ample spac
for the systematic installment o
wood-working equipment, so as t
greatly improve the instruction i
woodwork and makes room for bet
ter arrangement of laboratories o
other divisions. In the old wood-sho]
the mechanical and testing labora
tory has been installed, and in th<
basement of the same wing the me
chanical and hydraulic laboratory
has been placed. The space occupiec
by the former mechanical laboratorj
on the ground floor of the main bodj
of the engineering building has beer
rearranged and made into class
rooms and instrument rooms for the
civil engineering division, which is
enlarging its work, especially in
roa?s construction phases. .
With the change from the three
term to the two-semester plan, there
has been considerable improvement
in ihe courses of the seven divisions
of the engineering department, these
divisions being as now reorganized
mechanical and el^ptrical engi
neering, civil engineering, architec
ture and drawing, forge and foundry
machine shop and woodwork. Decid
ed improvements have been made
also, says Prof. Earle, in the power
plant, which is managed .under the
engineering department, hy the ad
dition of equipment which will give
additional power and provide reserve
power, which heretofore has been
lacking, and the addition of equip
ment for the pumping station to give
reserve power for the supply of wa
ter to the college community.

Jokes on Prohibition to be
Eliminated in Keith
General orders sent out by the
directing head to be strictly adhered
Orders have been received in Port
land by Clifford S. Hamilton, man
ager Keith's Theater, that he is to
see that all humorous or serious ref
erences to prohibition, whether in
favor of or against, or contained in
songs, jokes, gags or wheezes, or dia
logues, be eliminated from all pro
grams at the theater.
This is a general order signed by
E. F. Albee and sent out to every
manager on the circuit. The order
states that there have been many
complaints by patrons of the Keith
houses regarding jokes against the
Volstead Act. The order also says, in
the instructions to house managers,
that the humor in prohibition has
been overdone and to continue its
use by the artists in the Keith thea
ters is irritating to those who favor
In addition to these instructions,
Mr. Albee's order to his managers
also says the theaters should not be
used for political propaganda, giving
that as still another reason why no
mention of prohibition is to be per
It is understood that this order
will hit a great many acts, as many
of them have in some way or other
some reference to the Volstead Act
or the prohibitory law in general. It
is even stated thaat many headline
acts use this form of joke, but those
who have followed the course of e
vents have noticed in the past few
months a decided objection among
patrons of the theaters to reference
;in any way to prohibition. The feel
ing seems to be among patrons that
the prohibitory law has long since
passed the joke stage and, aside from
the ethics in the matter, such jokes
are so stale that there is no longer
any humor in them. It is understood
that some such order was issued
once before, although not so strin
gent as the present order, s.nd was
adhered to for a time, but for the
past two seasons the use of i;he pro
hibition gags, songs and lines, and
small talk, has been quite general.
When seen upon the matter, Mr.
Hamilton, the local manager, stated .
that he was very glad such an order
had been passed; that from what
he knew of the Portland people in .
general and his own audiences in
particular, he knew that Mr. Albee's ,
order would meet with general ap
proval here.-Portland Evening Ex- .

Washington, Sept. 9.-Homage to ;
Washington and Lincoln is being
shown by more than 1,000,000 peo- '
pie a year. Washington's home, Mt.( ?
Vernon, the mecca of virtually all .
Americans and foreigners who come
to Washington, is being rival?d as ,
a shrine by the beautiful Lincoln
memorial, while the Washington j
monument is the most popular of the ?
three shrines. i
Visitors numbering 34,112. went j
during July to the top of Washing- j
ton monument, conveniently located j
a few hundred yards south of the :
White House. More than one-fifth ]
of them clambered up the 898 steps
in order to see the memorial tablets i
on the various landings inside the '.
shaft. The remainder rode to the top <
in the electric elevator which has a
capacity of 35 persons. More than ]
5.250,000 people have visited the top i
of the monument since it was open- j
ed for observation purposes October
9, 1888. No entrance fee is charged.
The Lincoln memorial, recently .
completed and opened to the public,
was visited by 31,383 persons during
July. Located in Potomac park di
rectly west of the Washington monu
ment it is rather inaccessible for pe
destrians, visitors usually go there
by automobile. On a recent Sunday
2,000 persons were recorded as en
tering the great building. It is rapid
ly becoming a shrine for touriste. No
entrance fee is charged.
General George Washington's old
home at Mount Vernon on the Po
tomac river in Virginia, 16 miles
from Washington, long has been the
mecca of pilgrims from every part
of the world, who go by steamboat,
electric train and automobiles. Kept
as nearly in its original state as; pos
sible by the Ladies' Mount Vernon
association it is a delight to all
Americans. During July approxi
mately 29,000 persons visited Mount
Vernon and during the fiscal year
admissions numbered 236,000. A
25-cent entrance fee helps to keep
the estate in first-class condition.
The house where Abraham Lin
coln died, located opposite Ford's
theatre at 516 Tenth street, North
west, this city, is another shrine vis
ited by many tourists. It was bought
by the United States in 1896 for

Perry Butler, a young negro, liv
ing on T. J. Brigg's farm in E?ge
fieid county, about eight miles from
North Augusta, was arrested on this
side of the North Augusta bridge
early last night by Augusta officers
and is being held for Edgefield coun
ty authorities, as a result of an al
leged shooting in which Mary But
ler, wife of the arrested negro, was
shot and killed yesterday afternoon.
The shooting took place in the
Bethlehem Baptist church yard at
about 4 o'clock. The negro toid the
officers here that the church is sit
uated in Edgefield county at a point
about ten miles from the North Au
gusta bridge. He did not deny hav
ing used a weapon, but said that his
intentions were to shoot a racial
brother with whom he had had some
"The other negro shot at me,"
Butler told the officers, "and I shot
back at him and left in a hurry.
There was a crowd of people in the
churchyard, and I may have shot my
wife in mistake," he said, in his
story to the arresting officers.
Butler told of the difference be
tween himself and the other negro,
who shot at him, he claims. He said
that he had gone to church, and that
following the services, when many
of the negroes were gathered in the
yard, the other negro produced a re
volver and shot at him.
He said that he returned fire, and
after firing one shot, left the place
and came toward Augusta. "I did
not know whether I shot the negro
or not," Butler said, "until I was
nearly to the North Augusta Bridge,
when I was told that I had shot and
killed my wife, Mary." Butler said
that he was not making any attempt
to elude arrest, and declared that
he was ready to answer any charges
"I do not deny having shot my
wife," the negro said last night, "for
I did not want to see. But if I did
kill her, it was by mistake, for I
meant to shoot the negro man who
had shot at me in the churchyard."
T. M. Butler, chief of/police of
North Augusta, stated last'night that
the negro came through ^hat town,
and upon seeing a buggy coming to
wards Augusta, requested the driver
to carry him to Augusta. The white
man driving the buggy being una
ware of the shooting just a few
hours before, picked the negro up
and brought him to this city. Chief
Butler upon learning that the negro
was headed towards Augusta, noti
fied the authorities here, and the ar
The sheriff of Edgefield county
was notified last night by the local
authorities, and the prisoner was
turned over to him at a late hour.
The sheriff carried the negro to ed
gefield for investigation and trial.
