PISA IX DANGER.
leaning Tower Needs Work for Its
Rome. So much alarm 'has been
j caused both abroad and in Italy by
the reports that the Campanile of
j Pisa is threatening to fall, that the
report of the commission appointed
to look into the matter will come as
la relief, although it is not altogether
The report dwells lengthily on the
inclination of the tower, comparing
the results of the present investiga
tion with those conducted by two
Englishmen, Messrs. Cresy and Tay-
lor, in 1X17. There is unfortunately
no doubt that the pendence has in
: creased about a fourth of an inch
in every three feet during that per
iod. The greatest pressure is on the
foundations when a strong north
wind is blowing and is calculated to
be about 21 pounds to every four
square inches. This, of course, is
enormous and would have been im
possible had there not .been a grad
ual hardening of the foundations.
The report says: "The situation is
very grave but not wthout precedent;
other examples still existing show
the same conditions, such, for in
stance, as the celebrated Garisenda
of Bologna and the Ghirlandina of
Modena, where the pressure must be
It has been found that the walls
of the hollow inside the tower show
no serious deterioration, except near
the ground, where there is an almost
vertical crack, caused, probably, by
lightning. Outside, the ornamenta
tion constructed in 183S is intact,
but the original architraves of the
doors and windows shows cracks.
The steps are very much broken,
while the slates, though less broken,
have allowed the infiltration of wa
ter and dust, which in their turn
have hardened into a kind of solder.
The supports are also somewhat
broken, all of which, says the com
mission, needs assiduous vigilance
and quick restoration to obviate new
and more serious mischief. How
ever, as a whole, it may be said that
the state of preservation of the Cam
panile is good.
The report ends: "We declare that
the tower, while not showing any im
minent danger signs, is in a condi
tion which makes it advisable not to
retard too long the work for its
1)11) NOT CONFESS.
Clarence Harrow Will Fight Case to
Los Angeles. There will be no
such denouement as ended the Mc
Nainara trial in that of Darrow for
jury bribery, according to District
Attorney Fredericks. Reports that
Darrow had offered to confess and
plead guilty were characterized by
Darrow as "lies."
"I never had anything to confess
in this case." said Darrow, "and nev
er had any conversation with anyone
regarding a confession, nor any inti
mation or thought of that kind."
Fredericks refused to state defi
nitely whether the prosecution had
conducted any negotiations with the
defense, looking to a plea of guilty.
He said, however, he expected the
trial of Darrow to continue until the
jury agreed on a verdict.
District Attorney Fredericks said:
"Two weeks before the date of the
indictment, Bert H. Franklin, then
employed as a detective by Darrow,
went to Lookwood and offered him a
certain amount if he would vote not
guilty, provided he were drawn as a
"We will show that Franklin did
this at the instance and request and
under the direction of the defend
ant." Lockwood, according to the prose
cutor's statement, then reported the
incident to the district attorney's of
fice, and was told to continue his ne
gotiations with the agents of the Mc
Namara defense. When Loc.kwood's
name was drawn, he said. Franklin
again appeared at the house and of
fered to pay him $500 down and
$3,500 additional after he had voted
Fredericks contended that the
prosecution would produce witnesses
who saw the bribe money trans
ferred. Look Out tor Blight,

Last Friday evening the school as
a whole put on a program for pub
lic entertainment as a closing feature
of the school year just ended. There
was a large crowd in attendance and
the evening was enjoyed to the full
est extent possible, as it would have
been impossible for children any
where to have done better. One
feature particularly noticeable was
the singing done by the children and
shows that the work done by Miss
Kirkpatrick has been of great value
to the school, and no doubt music
will be taught in the school again
next year. Miss Kirkpatrick trained
the pupils in music and the other
teachers trained their respective
rooms for the other features of the
program. The teachers elected for
next year are: Prof. F. C. Smith,
Parthena Smith, May Smith and
Mrs. Jennie L. Hogue, the music
teacher not having been obtained yet
as Miss Kirkpatrick is going to uach
school the coming year elsewhere.
G. A. Gardner was favored with a
visit from his mother, Mary J. James,
The baseball team is much encour
aged by the success of their game at
Phoenix. The boys have new uni
forms and won the first game in
which they wore them, the score be
ing 8 to 6 and 10 innings were
played. The Phoenix boys play good
ball and have a nifty team, but there
would not be any odds between them
and the Talent team. The people of
the vicinity are taking quite an in
terest in the ball team and are going
to give them good support during
the season. The team was going to
give a social dance last Saturday
night, but owing to the death of C.
W. Wolters. the dance was postponed
until Saturday night, June 1. The
team will go to Gold Hill June 2 to
play that team a return game.
Mrs. F. C. Smith has been quite
ill for a few days, but is said to be
J. J. Pellett returned from Los
Angeles Monday, having been sum
moned by telegraph owing to the
death of his father-in-law, Mr. Wol
ters. The M. E. church gave a turkey
banquet in the packing house last
Tuesday evening, which proved quite
a success. There were 140 served to
a most bounteous dinner, after which
a program was rendered, the instru
mental music being given by Miss
Pellett and Mr. Peterson, both of
Ashland, Mr. Peterson giving some
excellent violin solos. Mrs. J. H.
Fuller sang some vocal solos which
were much appreciated, she having
had a great deal of experience In the
musical line at Boston, Mass. Per
haps the most striking feature of the
entertainment was the fact that the
leading candidates for national presi
dency were present. The disappoint
ment was that Mr. Taft was not able
to be present, owing to his hard cam
paign in New Jersey. However,
Teddy was present in the person of
Rev. G. H. Way, and toW of the nard
fight he had been having to carry on
the battle for the common people,
and he said he felt sure that he had
the enemy licked to a frazzle and in
terms most denouncing showed why
Mr. Taft should not be re-elected
and heartily apologized for having
endorsed him as a successor in of
fice. Dr. Bailey having personally
known Governor Woodrow Wilson,
and being a strong admirer of him,
gave a good representation and could
see no reason why his progressive
and moral character would not
promptly promote Mr. Wilson to the
chair in the White House. Bert R.
Greer of Ashland, who looks much
like a possible presidential candi
date, and having come from near
Missouri, was naturally able to
champion the cause of Champ Clark
and told in strong terms why he had
been so successful in the house of
representatives for the last 20 years
in saying nothing and doing the
same. He was happy to think that
he had so easily gotten the people of
Great Britain to swallow the sug
gestion that the United States Is try
ing to take over Canada, and thus
cause the defeat of the reciprocity
bill, and was sure the people of the
United States would give him a big
majority in November if he could get
the nomination in June. Mr. Mc
Fayle being a natural born reformer,
was able to act as Mr. La Follette,
and fully showed how his policies
had been carried out in Wisconsin,
how he had controlled the railroads
In that state, reduced the fare from
3 cents to 2 cents, and how he could
handle the affairs of the United
States if he could be elected as its
president. Mayor Breese acted as
Debs and fully described the situa
tion of the laboring people and fully
denounced the present methods of
handling the government affairs. G.
A. Gardner was introduced as "Our
George" and told all about his (Geo.
E. Chamberlain's) career and pros
pects for nomination to the vice
presidency. G. F. Billings gave a
general discussion of the evening,
giving the ladles considerable praise
for the good things he had to eat,
and gave a general idea of the com
ing events in the Chautauqua to be
held in Ashland June 2 to 12. Wel
born Beeson being a native product
of Talent, gave a booster talk for
Talent and vicinity, and at the con
clusion of his talk Toastmaster Ful
ler was so inoculated with the boost
ing spirit that he entertained a mo
tion to start a commercail club. The
committee to nurture the proposi
tion into a real club were appointed
as follows: Mayor W. II. Breese,
Messrs. Graves, Stratton, Frame and
Beeson. All then departed, hoping
to meet soon again at a similar meet

of age. His parents moved from
Crescent City to Jacksonville, Ore.,
when he was but one year old, at
which place he was reared until 18
years of age, then he moved to Ash
land, Ore., with his parents, where he
resided for seven years. He was
united in marriage with Miss Olive

Everyone that has lived in or visit
ed the community in which Mr. Wol
ters has lived of late years has met
him in either a business or social
way, and it mattered not how a per
son would come in touch with him,
the same impression would predomi
nate, that he was cheerful, obliging,
kind, honest and a strictly moral and
honorable man, also a Christian man,
being a member of the Baptist
church at Talent.
While of late years Mr. Wolters
had not been an active lodge worker,
having spent about all his leisure
hours at home, however, he has
