Active preparations are now being made for the next national Irrigation congress to be held about September 13 at some point in the west not yet deter mined on. The last congress, which was in session a week in Los Angeles, Octo ber, 13a3, appointed commissioners in every western state and territory, whose duty it is to prepare a report to be sub mitted to the coming congress covering all the features of special interest in each state and territory of the arid west. These reports will show the amount of arid and semi-arid land; the amount of land now Irrigated, and the acreage be lieved to be Irrigable; the sources of water supply, developed and possible of development; the cost of procuring, storing, and deliver Ing water on lands; state legislation, in force and needed; national legislation as to the disposition of arid lands and government eontrol of water sources; and such other points as may suggest themselves to each commis sion as being pertinent to their own state.

Allen, secretary, Los Angeles, California, and information as to the work In this state from any of the commissioners named above. EQUAL SUFFRAGE IN THE SOUTH. The organization of an equal suffrage club by a number of the wealthiest women of Atlanta, Georgia, attracts wide attention and shows that woman suffrage has at last obtained a foothold in the south which has been for a long time its most unpromising field. It Is the object of this club to extend its labors and to organize other clubs in every city in Georgia. The result will be that Georgia will soon be as much in the midst of the equal suffrage agitation as any other state in the union. The advancement of women is not confined to Georgia alone. On March 13, the last day of the ses sion, the general assembly of Kentucky passed the bill known as the Husband and Wife BilL" This bill gives to the married woman entire equality with the married men. in the possession and con trol of property. After Mrs. Josephine K. Henry's eloquent address on "Aiar ried Women's Property Rights," early in the session, several of the members expressed a wish to hear her ppeak again, and -asked if she could not later.in the session give another address. She suggested that she might take as large. a subject as "American Citizenship." They expressed themselves as pleased, and, accordingly, on March 3, by invitation, she spoke on that subject at Representa tive halL The ball had been tendered by a unanimous vote for that purpose; and the senate, which was holding a night session on account of pressure of business, adjourned to hear her. The hall was rilled with an audience com posed largely of the legislators, and she held them in close attention for more than an hour. The Virginia legislature, which recent ly adjourned, passed a law making husv band and wife competent to testify for or against each other in civil cases, ex. cept suits to set aside conveyances from one to the other on the ground of fraud, and divorce proceedings. Either may testify in behalf of the other in criminal proceedings. . CARRIER'S UNIFORMS. First Assistant Pontmnitf r General Janet Straightens Thing Oat. Washington, April 2. -- Objections have been raised by letter carriers in several cities to the requirements of the postoffiee department concerning the purchase of carrier's uniforms, although no formal protest has been made.

When proper, he may require : any carrier to purchase a new uniform or part of one, and the carrier must appear as neat and tidy ai th$ service will per mit. The only purpose of- the department In contracting for the uniform was a de sire to aid the carriers in securing better uniform at a lower price. 1 here is nothing compulsory in it further than is already provided by the postal laws."

A body found ia the Delaware has been identified as that of Charles Gans of Swedesboro. According to the county records, how ever, the body of Charles Gans was found in a creek a few weeks ago and was buried by his relatives. The coroner's inquest at that time dis closed the fact that murder-had been committed and two men who were last seen with Gans are awaiting trial charged with the crime. The finding of the second body makes the case a very mys terious one, for everything seems to show that the first body was not that of Gans, and presents a Chinese puzzle to the police as to what hand the two men under arrest had iu the death of either. Gans was last seen alive on the night of January 15. On that night he was in a hotel drinking. Two men were with him. They wese Patrick Kerwin and D. P. Armstrong. The trio became involved in a fight in which it was Gans against the other two. Shortly after the tight, Gans left the hotel and started down the road. .-Jen minutes later, Kerwin and Arm sir&ng left the bar room and also went down the road in the same direction Gans had taken. This was the last seen of Gans. A few days afterward, when he did not appear at his home, an investi gation was made. Kerwin and Arm strong were arrested. Nothing could be proved against them, as it was not even known that Gans was dead. They were released. The search for Gans, however, was kept up and on Mareh 11 two boys, while tramping through the wood3, fotfnd the body in a little creek containing hardly enough water to cover it The body was taken to Camden and was identified by a brother of Charles Gans as that of his brother. The county physician made an autop sy and announced that the man had been murdered. The neck was broken, there were many bruises, and it was shown that life had been extinct before the body had reached the water. Mrs. Gans, the wife of the missing man. said the body was not that of her husband. She said the clothes were dif ferent than what he had worn. Gans' mother was also doubtful. The brother then mado a close examination, and found on the body three marks. When these were shown to the two women they admitted that the body was the one they sought. The theory of the authorities was that the murderers had changed Gans' clothes and removed every means of identification. Kerwin and Armstrong were taken into custady. and their trial is set for the next term of court. The body found was floating on the river surface. In the pockets of the clothing were the articles Gans had on his person when he was last seen. His watch was there as well as a number of papers, a knife and other things. The clothing was the same as that worn by Gans when he left home on the 15th of January. Sp far as the ex amination has gone, drowning was the apparent cause of death. Whose body it was the boys found iu the creek, and who is resposible for what the coroner's jury has declared a mur der, is puzzling the authorities. STAMPED ENVELOPES.

A BIG CROWD WAS THERE To Hoar What Became of the MIllor-Dnn . Case. A crowd of no Kss than 200 young men, chiefly "billiard hall Johunies" aud bad boys, were at Justice Furry's court today to hear the preliminary examination of Cameron Miller and Earnest Dann. They were greatly disappointed that nothing occurred to satisfy their curiosity, as the case was continued for ten days. The defendants in the case will fight the charge against them bitterly and bring every legal pressure to bear to es cape the penitentiary. They have en gaged Thomas H. Bain, J. B. Larimer, and W. A. S. Bird to conduct their de fense. Both Miller and Dann were pres ent in court today, and appeared to be the least interested of any one. Ida Peterson, the complaining witness, was present but occupied the dark room adjoining the courtroom, alone with two female friends. The continuance was asked for by Mr. Bird and" Mr. Bain, in order that they might have more time in which to pre pare for the defense. It is said that a list gf other young men who the defendants claim are just as guilty as they, is being prepared by law yers in the case. .

Washikgton, D.C., April 2.-Secretary Smith has transmitted to congress an ad verse report on the bouse bill recently introduced providing for the restoration of 1861 square miles of land in the Yel lowstone . National park to the public domain. The secretary says that the segregation of the laud will result in obstructing the enforcement of the regulations for the government of the park owing to the squatting that would be made on these lands by crowds of poachers, trappers and other undesirable characters. The boundaries of the park as now fixed by law are unsatisfactory to the de partment, and no good reason for the proposed change is known. It is held that the passage of this bill will establish a bad precedent and result in turning the entire reservation over to private interests. A Sew Penny Paper. Boston, April 2.
