THE DAY ABROAD.
Emperor William Goes to Make a

Bkku.v, Jan. L— The usual celebrations
t«nk place to-day. Emperor William re
ceived the diplomatic corps in the White
ii-ill after luncheon, several German mili
tary attaches beine present. Later the
Emperor, accompanied by Prince Henry
of Russia, called at the residences of the
tiiolomatic corps as well as at the resi
dences of Caprivi and a number of gener
als and admirals. In the evening after
dinner the Emperor ana Empress went to
Pakis, Jan. 1. — President Carnot re
ceived tue diplomatic corps and the Papal

The Morning Call.
his colleagues, expressed wishes for the
continued prosperity of France.
BOMB. Jan. l. — King Hun:bert, replying
to the New Year's greetings of the Italian
Senators and D.-'putiea, alluded to the
riots in Sicily? and said he sympathized
with the and was convinced that
their condition could be alleviated by wise
measures of legislation. He believed the
prospects were good for a peaceful state of
affairs iv Europe, and this would enable
him and them to give considerable atten
tion to internal questions.
SHE WAS HARMLESS.
The Woman Who Went to Take
Possession of the White House.
Washington, Jan. I.— A woman of
medium height, dressed in dark clothes,
whose talk seems to indicate that her mind
is slightly unbalanced, was arrested at the
Wriite House to-day and confined in the
First Preeiin't 6Cation-house. Her ap
pearance at the White House was not a
surprise to the officer* there, as Captain
Dexter on Saturday had received a letter
from her announcing that she would be on
Hand to-day to take possession of the
White House- She did not, she said, see
the President to-day, but merely cne of
the door keeper;, and be, seeing she was
not exactly in her right mind, had her
taken away. She gave her name as Mrs.
lioser. and ssid she was a widow, with a
residence iv this city.
Mrs. Losey has been defrauded of con
sidernble money left her by her parents in
Europe. She tried to recover it by writing
letters, but evidently she did not get much
encouragement, and became impressed
with the idea that^she might be able to
obtain a fortune through the Government.
It was undoubtedly in pursuance of some
idea that Cleveland ought to settle the
claim that ihe went tr> the White House
to-day. She will be detained until her
friends are heard from.
NEGLECTED HIS DUTY.
Secretary Gresham Is Dissatisfied
With Minister Thompson.
He Stays Away From Rio and His
Reports Are Not at All
Wasuixgtos, .lan. l.— There is a sus
picion iv the State Department that
Thompson, American Minister to Brazil,
has not given the close attention to affairs
in that country that the situation demand!.
>eciv:ary Gresharu wired Thompson, so it
is said, for a statement as to how often he
a i visited the city of Rio, intimating very
plainly that he spent too much of bis
time Iv the pleasant suburb of Petropoiis.
Minister Thompson cabled that he visitel
the city when occasion required and
stated that he woul.i comply with the de
partment's wisl»es in recard to making
more frequeut trips there. There are
reasons for believing that the estate
Department authorities are not alto
gether satisfied witn the reports
sent them from time to time by
Minister Thompson. They place more
dependence upon the cables sent by Cap
tain Picking to the Navy Department than
they do upon the communications received
from their own representative, and there
is a decided difference in the character of
the news received from the two sources.
Nearly all of Minister Thompson's dis
patches lately have indicated that the in
surgents had the upper band, while those
sent by Captain Picking have eiven rather
encouraging news for Peixoto. In the
Navy Department the authorities are vow
speaking confidently of Peixoto'a ultimate
success, and the State Denartment officials
have aiso recently shifted round to this
way of thinking, despite the iact that
Minister Thompsnn in his message takes
a rather gloomy view of Peixoto's ability
to suppress the revolutionists.
7^m he Jankhio, Jan. L — lt is learned
that the chief of the Insurgent Provisional
Government at Desterro, Captain Fred
eric William Lorena, has resigned, nomi
nating as his successor Baron DeDatovy,
just cashiered by Peixoto for desertion.
He liad taken his entire force over to the
Insurgents. The insurgent force in tLe
south is 6aid to number 1600 men.
Sudden Death of a Pioneer Resident
of San Jose.
San Jose, Jan. I.— The lifeless body of
George Greenman was found in an out
liouse in the rear uf «the Alameda planing
roill this morning. Heart disease is tbe
supposed cause of death. He was a
pioneer resident of this county, and a
native of New York, aged 63 years. He
conducted a livnry-F table for several
years, but recently was the proprietor of a
cigar-stand on the Alameda. He leaven a

which lay near Brannan Slough, above

Cleveland Decides That Hornblower
Cannot Be Confirmed.
St. LOUIS, .Jan. I.— The Republic's
Washington special says: It is stated the
President has decided that Hornblower

Attorney-General, for the vacant Judge

TAX ON INCOMES.
Democrats Can Come to
CLEVELAND'S FINE HAND.
There Was a Committee Meeting
Which Came to Nothing.
COCKRAN QROVER'S CHAMPION.
It Is Not Deemed Wise at the
White House to Make Indi
Washington. Jan. I.— The Democratic
members of the Ways and Means Commit
tee met at the Treasury Department to
night to finally decide upon the income
tax question and the iuternal revenue
fetitures of the tariff bill. There were
prAsent Wilsou. McAlilliu, Breckinridge,
Montgomery, Bryan, Tarsney, Cockran,
Stevens, Whiting and Turn»-y. Mr. By-
Dam's absence prevented a vote on the In
come-tax question, and after a session of
three hours the committee adjourned until
to-morrow at 4 o'clock.
The discussion to-night was general, cov
ering the entire question of how the deficit
in the revenues was to be met. Tba issue
between the raerabc rs is whether the in
come tax shall be upon iudivldul incomes
or simply upon the incomes of corpora
tions. The weight of t tie administration's
influence is being thrown strongly against
the individual tax proposition, as was ap
parent to-night by the manner in wi ich
the scheme was attacked by those sup
posed to represent Ihe administration's
Coekraa of New York was persistent
and aggressive on this line. He made live
speeches in wh eh he contended that the
neevvsarv revenue could be raided from the
single tax on iucomes of corporations. He
produced figures to show that a 1 per cent
tax on the iucomes of corporations would
produce revenues of $40,000,000, but all
those who favor an individval Income tax
maintain that not over £ 13,0u0,000 could be
raised in this way.
Incidentally the details of other internal
revenue features, the proposed increase
on whisky and beer, were discussed, but
all pivoted on the decision of the main
proposition, it being conceded that if a tax
should be levied against individual incomes
an increase from other sources would not
Although sugar has been placed on the
free list by a majority vote of tbe Demo
cratic members of the committee, the ques
tion of restnnnz it to tbe dutiable list also
cut some figure in the even mc's discussion.
Nothing, however, was decided nuon. and
when the eominittee adjourned Chairman
Wilson said the situation was absolutely
It is generally agreed among Democratic
Senators that the financial question shall
remain untouched in Congress until the
tariff bill is disposed of. Voorhees said
to-day that no effort whatever would be
made to press his silver bill until the
tariff was out of the way. When reached,
however, he thought it would prova tbe
solution of the problem.
Bland also announces that he will not
try to get his free coinage bill up in the
House till the tariff bill is passed. Tbe
< 'arlisle bond issue proposition will also
probably give way to the tariff, as the
latter is considered a matter of primary
importance, and its decision may put
matters in such condition as to make the
issuance of bonds unnecessary. Further
more, it is known that tbe silver men ap
prove of bonds and are prepared to Tote
for their is?ue against any man who does
not favor silver. Hence, there need be no
cause for surprise if the taking up of the
bond proposition may be delayed so long
as to render it impolitic to take it up at
NO MERCY FOR THE REDS.
French Authorities Have Taken the
Paris, Jan. I.— The police raided tbe
anarchist quarters in many towns of
France to-day. They seized the forms
and copy of to-day' 3 edition nf the an
archist journal of Pere Peutard and also
searched the residence of Eli see Keclus, a
brother of Paul Keclus, who has been
missing since the throwing of the bomb
in tbe Chamber of Deputies. At Havre
the police searched eleven houses, seized a
lot of correspondence and recovered stolen
bonds of the value of 1300 francs. For the
theft of these bonds three anarchists were
imprisoned some months ago. Five an
archists were arrested in the raid 9 in
various towns in the department of Seine
lnferieure, including the city of Rouen.
Gendarmes, with fixed bayonets, sur
rounded the bouse of an anarchist lec
turer in the Boa Vierge. Brest, and ar
rested a well-known anarchist named
Meunier and three others, together with
three women companions. Meunier bad
already suffered imprisonment for foment
Five anarchists were arrested at Troy
and a quantity of explosives seized and
five moro anarchists were arrested at
Mont Luc mi.
The Minister of the Interior ordered that
the search for anarchists should be made
simultaneously throughout France. A
charged bomb was discovered at Grenoble
Hnd 450 cartridges were found at Allier.
Fifteen militant Italian anarchists, all
with criminal records, were expelled from
Nice. Up to this writing there have been
thirty-four arrests of anarchists Id Paris
and its suburbs and twenty-four at Lyons.
Lyons, Jan. I.— The police searched the
domiciles of fifty anarchists to-day and
made twenty-four arrests. Much incen
diary literature was seized.
HELPED OUr CAPRIVI.
Dr. Miquel Induced to Abandon His
Financial Reform Scheme.
London, Jan. I.— A dispatch to the
News from Berlin suvs: As a result of a
conference of the Emperor with Caprivi,
Dr. Miquel, Minister of Finance, nnd Gen
eral Shellendorff, Minister of War, Mi
quel's financial reform scheme has been
partly abandoned. Miquel has been in
duced tn postpone the reorganization of
the matricular contribution system and in
consequence 40.000,000 marks less will have
to be raised. This will enable the Govern
ment to modify the proposed taxes, reduc
ing those on tobacco and wine. This
arrangement is of great importance, a* it
releases Caprivi from a difficult position in
regard to the Conservatives.
FOUND THEM DEAD.
The Awful Discovery Made When
a Residence Was Broken Open.
Kansas Citt. Jan. I.— A special to
the Times from Independence, Kans., says :
A most horrifying discovery was made
this morning, when Al lirown. a son-in
law of George W. Read, manager of the
Long- Bell Lumber Company, broke into
the home of the latter and found Read,
clad only in his nlgbt clothes, sitting dead
In a chair before a hot stove fed by natural
gas. The body was in an advanced stage
of decomposition. Edith Scott, a domestic
in the family, was lyine dead on the floor
of her room, and Mrs. Read and her five
year-old son were in bed. The boy was
dyiug, and the mother was unconscious.
The terrible tragedy was shrouded in mys
tery. There are many theories current as
to the cause, one being asphyxiation, an
other accidental roisoning,and another foul
play. The fact that the two gas stoves in
the honse were burning at full force practi
cally explodes the theory of asphyxiation,
and the fact that no bruises were found on
either body renders the murder theory al
most incredible, leaving accidental poison
ing as the most probable cause. None of
the family was seen Inter than Saturday
evening, leaving no doubt that lie ad and
the domestic had been dead tbirty-six
hours before the bodies were discovered.
Every room in the house was intensely hot,
and there being no ventilation, the fumes
from the badly decomposed bodies of the
dead were slitting.
An autopsy was held to-day, but noth
ing definite can be ascertained until an
analysis of the stomach can be completed.
The Coroner will hold an inquest to-mor
row morn in 2.
Indkiknuknce, Kans., Jan. I.— The
doctors, after an examination to-night, de
cided that the family had been poisoned
by strychnine, which had probably gotten
into the fond. Mrs. Read is still uncon
scious, but the doctors have hope of her
recovery. The boy will probably die.
THE OLD GLOBE GONE
Burning of One of Boston's Most
For a Time It Looked as Though the
FJre Could Not Be
BOSTOX. Jan. 2:15 a. m.— The Globe
Theater was comDletcly gutted and the
property of Hanlou's «ui>erb company
was ruined by fire early tuit ruorning.
Every engine that could Oe spared was
beinc used to protect adjacent property.
At this hour tbVlaree six-story building
.just erected by the H^ard College trus
tees bas caught, and it looks as if the en
tire block on Harrison avenue extension
will be swallowed up. On the Essex
street side, adjoining the theater, are valu
able blocks of buiidioss occupied by large
bnsiness concern*. . ' ""•■■",: .^» -.-■'
The streets of the city are in total dark
ness and the electric-cars hare ceased to
run, owing to the currents being turned
off. The heavens are illuminated with a
blaze which can be s>'en for miles around.
Sparks from the fire traveled with tbe
wind two aii'l three blocks away, and a
most careful watch is being kept by a cor
don of policemen.
The first alarm was given at 1 :1.~ a. m.,
and was quickly followed by a second,
third and fourth alarm, it is thought tne
fire wai started iv the coatroom of tbe
theater by some one throwing a lighted
cigarette ou the floor.
The estimated loss on the theater is in
the neighborhood of ?. r «oo.iX>o and that of
the Uanlon company 540.000. The fire is
still raging, and there is no telling where
it will stop.
'2:'irt a. m.— Tne fire has been checked on
the Essex-street and Jl.ir, ison-avenue ex
tension side of tbe theater, but is eating
its way into the buildings on the other
side. The Globe cafe is a total loss.
There is a fair prospect of confining tbe
flames within the present limits. It is im
possible to state what the loss will amount
to in the business buildings.
At 3:35 a. m. the fire was apparently
under control and the danger of a general
conflagration passed. Tlie total loss will
undoubtedly reach nearly $1, 000,000. All
tbe property is well insured.
A Sharp Line to Be Drawn Between
Professionals and Amateurs.
Camkkiimjf., Mass., Jan. I.— To-day the
new athletic rules whi;h are to purify
Harvard athletics went into effect. They
are the final product of many years' work
by old Harvard coacbers and men who are
lenders in athletics. The primary purpose
of these rules is to purify all individual
and team athletics from any tinge of pro
fessionalism. These rules are drawn up
and signed by Bertram Q. Waters and
George A. Stewart. They are very strict
in defining amateurs and also in debarring
frouil college athletics all but buDa-fide
members of the university. The time
limit regulation provides that no student,
whether he has represented one or more
colleges, shall take part in intercollegiate
contests for more than four years, and this
period shall begin with the year in which,
as player upon a university team, he firet
represented any colleger In reckoning
these four years any year of probation and
any year lost to the student by illness
shall be excluded. By these rules many
Harvard star athletes will be thrown out
of playing for the remainder of this year,
and especially will it weaken the baseball

NOW FOR HAWAII.
Mr. 'Morgan's Committee
IT WILL HEAR ALL SIDES.
Stevens Is Wanted as the First
ILLNESS MAY KEEP HIM AWAY.
The Purpose Is to Take All of
the Testimony That Can
Washington, Jan. I.— The Senate com
mittee investigating alleged irregularities
in the diplomatic relations between this
country and Hawaii will resume its sit
tings to-morrow. It is believed it will Dp
possible to havo a full committee, and it is
presumed that hereafter the Investigation
will uroceed regularly. All who liave yet
been communicated with ou the subject
have signified their willingness to come to
Washington for that purpose without mak
ing it necessary to resort to the process of
formally serving subpenas. It has been
expected that St«veus would appear early
and give his testimony, but his health is
liable to prevent it and thus, even with all
the members of the committee present and
prepared to go forward with the work, the
inquiry may be delayed indefinitely. The
committee counts upon securing to-mor
row the testimony of Professor Alexander,
who is Surveyor-General of Hawaii under
the Provisional Government and a native
of the country. He is a son of missionary
parents and naturaliy a strong supporter
of the Dole Government.
Pawtvckkt, R. 1., Jan. I.— At the
banquet of the Garfield Club to-night ex-
Min ister John L. Stevens delivered the
address. He. declared that the return of
Queen Liliuokalani to her throne by any
I outside force or the intimidation of the
! Provisional Government by any dlDlo
j matic pressure or chicanery will be a pub
lic crime by whomsoever perpetrated. To
make Hawaii a second Singapore or Hong-
Kong might be all very well fur a JJrhish
colony, but was not adapted to American
I institutions nor intended for an American
I form of government. The executive of
this great republic has assumed a hostile
attitude to an American colony on the
Hawaiian Islands. When Cleveland's
j emissary reached the islands last Mar -h
there was no part of the United btntes
more peaceful, for the monarchy was
dead and oflieial corruption had been put
an end to. This same emissary bore let
ters of credence to representative Amer
icans, whom he subsequently stabbed in
tl.« back. <>n the secret te;timony
of their enemies respectable mem
bers or the Provisional Government
were condemned as criminals and insulted
with the promise that when the grossly
immoral Queen should be restored to her
throne she would pardon them the par
don of such men as Chief Justice Judd
and Attorney-General Hatch, a son of
New Hampshire, and the superior legally
I and in every other respect of Secretary
j Gresham, the pardon of such representa
tive men. whose private and official char
acters at nn period of their past lives had
a blot upon them. With sorrow and shame
we look upon this sad picture to which we
have been brought by the present admin
istration. In the name of all the freedom
loving races, in behalf of all who love jus
tice and fair play, in behalf of Christian
Civilization in the United States, let us do
our duty in endeavoring to put a stop to
the extraordinary usurpation of power
and to stamp out the outrage inflicted upon
our patriotic.uevoied and imperiled fellow
countrymen of the North Pacific.
DIRECT FROM DOLE.
A Letter From the Wife of the
President of Hawaii.
BorTDKit, Col., Jan. I.— Under date of
December it. Mrs. Dole, wife of the Presi
dent of Hawaii, wrote an interesting letter
to her nephew. Guy Dennet of this city,
from which this extract is taken: "The
news of Cleveland's policy of restoring the
Queen came upon us like a thunderbolt.
Tlie excitpment is intense here. The Pro
visional Government rose to the emer
gency in a splendid way. 1 admire their
magnificent courage even while I tremble.
They fortified the executive building more
strongly and cave out publicly that they
would resist attacks from whatever quar
ter. They are ready to sacrifice their lives
in this great cause, the cause of freedom
and civilization in these islands.
"It all reminds me more than anything
«f the old revolutionary times in the United
States. There Is the same spirit and much
the same cause. Is it not good bow
Cleveland's plan for restoring the Queen
on the 10th of November was frustrated,
and bow the great American people have
risen up in their wrath and will restrain
him? It is a fine thing to do, and to think
of little Hawaii causing all this excite
ment. But there is a tremendous principle
involved in the struggle of freedom and
right against monarchical tyranny and
wrong. It is grand to see the spirit here.
I believe now that the people have taken
up our cause we shall be all right, and we
ate hoping for good news from Congress
by the next steamer."
ANGRY MRS. LEASE.
She Will Fight Governor Lewelling
to the Bitter End.
Topeka, Kirns., Jau. I.— Mrs. Lease to
day employed Judge Dos'.er to assist
Eugene Hagan in prosecuting her suit
against the Governor. The first blow in
tbe courts will be struck to-morrow morn
ing in an apDllcation to the Supreme
Court for an injunction preventing J. \V.
Freeborn from attempting to uke Mrs.
Lease's place on the board. Airs. Lease
leaves to-morrow morning for Oiatbe to
attend a meeting of the board. This moot
ing was to have been bold at Winfield, but
the place was changed by order of Mrs.
Lease. The matter was afterward brought
to the attention of Governor Lewelling
and the Governor immediately telegraphed
the members that Mrs. Lease was no
longer connected with the board and in
structed them to pay no attention to her
orders. Mr*. Lease last night, nowever,
sta'.ed that there would be a full meeting
at Olathe to-morrow.
Mrs. Lease to-aav sent tbe following
teleeram to the .State Federation of Labor,
in session at Leavenworth: "I desire to
join my voica with yours and tender time
and money in denouncing the executive
power that has recognized 'rata and scoun
drels' and ignored labor organizations.
The principles of the People's party are
eternal and uniissa liable. Through them
we will triumph and the crows betraying
their trust and the cause of the people
will pass out of sight by the labor vote."

miles from here, have come in. E. N. Wil
liams was dancing on the floor and aroused
the animosity of Lemon Gayle, who de
manded that Williams surrender his place
on the floor. Williams refused, but Gayle
became boisterous and Williams started
from the room, when Gayle, his brother,
London Gayle, and Bob Early began tiring
at Williams and others.
London Gayle shot through the window
and killed a boy named Waddy, when
another boy. Isaac .Seotr, remarked, '*Lon
dnn Gayle tins killed Waddy." whereupon
London turned, and sayine, "What is that
to you ?" shot the boy through and through,
killing him instantly. Then a geueral
fusillade followed from the guns and pis
tols. A woman was shot through the
breast and is now dead.
Lemon Gayle was shot through the body
and will die. A girl was shot in the face
near the eye and another square in the
middle of the head ; a boy was shot through
the arm and another through the right
hand, and others received various slighter
After Lemon Gayle was shot his brother
London ran in and stood over the pros
trate body, Winchester in hand, and
pumped cold lead into the panic-9tricken
dancers, who were unable to get out of
the house to avoid his awful vengeance.
Three are dead and the fourth fatally
wounded, two seriously, and about half a
dozen have minor injuries.
FAIR TO BOTH SIDES.
Pretty Good Doctrine Laid Down
by a Federal Court.
Employes on a Railroad Slave the
Right to Come In and Be
Little BOCK, Ark., Jar;. I.— lt is stated
hv a gentleman from St. Paul that the
United states Circuit Court in that city
has refused to enter that part of the order
of the Milwaukee court restraining the
officers of labor organizations irora order
ing a strike on the Northern Pacific, bat
did enjoin the employes, in case of a strike,
from interfering with the property or men
employed to take their places. Judge
Caldweil declined to give any information
on this question, but said that the writs
issued by tbe two courts will disclose the
dirlerence between them.
In reply to a question as to whether the
receivers should apply to him for leave to
reduce w aass. Judge (aldwell said: "I
should require them to give notice of the
application to the representatives of the
labor organization to be affected, and
should also require tiiem to furnish such
representatives leaves of absence and
transportation to the place of hearing, and
1 would hear both sides in person or by
the attorneys. The employes of a road
I in the hands of a receiver are employes of
! the court, and as much in its service as
! the receivers themselves, aud as much en
titled to be heard unon any proposed order
of the court which would affect the whole
! body of employes.
"I f, after a full hearing and consideration,
I found it necessary, equitable and best
! to reduce the scale of wag«s. 1 would give
j the employes ample time to determiue
whether they would accept or reject the
scale. If they rejected it, they would not
be enjoined from quitting the service of
the court, either singly or in a body, lv
other words, I would not enjoin them from
striking, but if they made the election to
strike I would make it plain to them that
they must not, in quitting the service of
the court, interfere with the property or
operation of the road or the men employed
to take their places.
"The United States court can very read
ily find means effectually to protect the
property and possessions of persons in its
employ. I have in one or two instances
pursued the policy I bave indicated and
the differences were satisfactorily ad
Nr.w York. Jan. I.— The Post's Chicago
special says: A vigorous move made by a
portion of the stockholders of the North
ern Pacific for the removal of the present
receiver created no surprise in wellgin
fornjed circles here. In fact, the appoint
ment of three receivers is deemed absurd
by practical railway managers, as they
deem one amply sufficient.
The salaries asked are also considered
out of all proportion to the services they
are competent to render the road, and
they regard the situation of the
Union Pacific receiverships fn the
same light. In this connection. it
is proper to state that though ' the
Chicago railways are under the direc
tion of the ablest and most practical man
agers known to the profession, few, if
any, receive more than half of $18,000, the
sum asked by the Union and Northern
Pacific receivers, although these man
agers give their entire time to their duties,
and receivers, or at least a portion of
them, are mere figureheads.

HIDDEN AWAY WITH MORRELL.
No Word Received From Sheriff
Scott and Posse, Whose Move
ments Are Kept Secret.
Fresno, Jan. l. — It has now been tc :>r
days since Chris Evans bid ndieu to
I'resuo's jail officials. During all this time
his clever escape lias been ihe principal
topic discussed, and no phase of the case
has been unnoticed.
It has now reached the theorist's period
and his ideas are without number. It has
beoa suggested by some of Evans'sup
posed friends thai he has given the officers
the dodge and is now many miles from
their snowy camp in Sampsons Flat.
They reason mat Evans is too clever to
think of trying to battle with tno moun
tain storms in his condition, and that while
there is no doubt he pretended to go up
the flume to Sanger, after the darkness
of Friday evening set in he was met by a
fresh team and hurriedly taken in an op
posite direction, doing his traveling only
by nignt. If it were not that this is the
view of Evaua' friends, it would senm
probable that it is correct and
that the officers are on a cold trail.
The idea must general, however,
i 3 that Evans had a camp and sup
plies awaiting in his familiar mountain
rendezvous aud that he and Comrade
MorreU are snugly sheltered from the
mountain storm, while Sheriff Scott and
posse are watchiug every avenue of escape,
iior-iug thai the bandits will run into their
clutches In au effort to get out of the
storm and secure supplies of food and
Sheriff Scott and posse, who are after
Evans and MorreU, :tre stlil unheard
from. The fact that some word is not re
ceived from them is said to be due to the
order Scott gave the posse 10 keep their
work secret from the press, ciainnug that
the bandits make use of the published
plans of the officers in avading the officers.
From this it seems that nothii.g is likely
to be heard from their, till they do battle,
make a capture or yive up the chase.
GOING TO WASTE.
Scientists Making Calculations Upon
the Surplus of Water.
Washington, Jan. I.— The determina
tion ol the problem of the amount of
water to be used for irrigation in the West
is the subject of an investigation now in
progress at the Geological Survey. The
scientists of the survey have completed a
chart showing the mean annual run oft in
the streams of the United States. It was
compiled under the direction of Geologist
F. H. Nowell and is the first map of its
character ever made. It is tbe result of
about fourteen years of study, though
only since six years ayo has the investiga
tion been conducted on an extensive scale.
During the past six years all the large
rivers in the country have been gauged by
