Make Him an Offer.

Washington, March 18. Lawrence
Spear, an employe of the Electric
Boat company, was the principal wit
ness today before the Lilley Subma
rine " Boat company investigation
committee. Representative Hobson
(Ala.) testified before the committee
several days ago that Mr. Spear in
formed him that his company would
use its influence with the speaker to
have him placed on the naval com
mittee, "if he stood right on subma
rines." Mr. Lilley has filed with the com
mittee an unfdgned communication
asking that "William Duels of New
York city, and Robert Mica Floy of
Cold Springs Harbor, N. Y., both for
merly directors of the Electric Boat
company, resigned because of the
amount used for corruption, or for
which they would make no account
ing." Mr. Spear said that he was one of
the vice presidents and the naval con
structor of the company. He 1b a
graduate of the naval academy, hav
ing served in the construction corps
and relieved Mr. Hobson in charge of
the school of naval -architecture at
Annapolis. He resigned from the na
val service July 1, 1902, and entered
the service of the Submarine Boat
company.
Mr. Spear said that the last time
he had seen Mr. Hobson was at the
capital a month) or six weeks ago. He
had gone to see him, he said, at the
instance of Vice President Frost of
the Electric Boat company, to give
him a friendly warning against an
other man who was" trying to in
fluence submarine boat legislation.
In his testimony today Mr. Spear
denied that he had told Representa
tive Hobson that he would use his in
fluence with Speaker Cannon to have
Hobson appointed on the naval af
fairs committee, provided be was
"right" on submarines. Mr. Spear
admitted he had told Hobson's secre
tary that he would assist Hobson in
any way he could. ' -
FORCED TO RESIGN.
Former President Celebrates Birthday
Quietly at His Home.
Princeton, N. J., March 18. Today
Grover Cleveland is celebrating, in his
quiet way his seventy-first birthday.
Although many reports have been cur
rent lately to the effect that he is 111,
still today finds him comparatively
hearty for a man of his years.
President Cleveland, being the only
living ex-president of the United
States, is a man of international In
terest. He is a typical American and
during his two terms as president of
the United States left a decided im
pression on its history.
This afternoon the students of
Princeton university will gather for
their annual celebration of his natal
day. The students will form a proces
sion and march to his residence. There
amid great enthusiasm and applause
is is expected Grover Cleveland will
make a brief speech to the students,
as has been his custom for years. His
life here at Princeton Is simple, quiet
and unostentatious. He is frequently
seen on the streets when the weather
permits, in conversation with the
town people and college professors.
For years it was his custom to enter
actively into local politics, but of late
years he has withdrawn entirely from
this.
Grover Cleveland's wife is charming
and is thoroughly liked wherever she
is known. His children are a source
of great happiness and pride to Mr.
Cleveland. He seldom leaves Prince
ton. - Being director in 'the Metropoli
tan ' Life Insurance company and
prominent in the Association of Life
Insurance Presidents, he has occasion
ally to make a business trip to New
York and always returns as soon as
possible.
Correspondents of the lare - New
York and Philadelphia dallies find it
very hard to secure interviews with
Mr. Cleveland on public questions. If
he has anything to state he calls about
him students who represent these pa
pers and they telegraph- it -over the
Kaiser's Consin Quits Army Rather
Than Give Up a Woman.
Berlin, March 18. Prince Joachim Al
brecht of Russia, second cousin of Em
peror William, has resigned from the
army, where he held the rank of major
and will not again be permitted to wear
the German uniform. The resignation
of the prince, it is' declared, was re
quested by Emperor William.
According to the Mlttag Zietung, Em
peror William has been extremely dis
satisfied with the prince because of his
continued relations with Baroness
Liebenburg. It was because of his in
terest in this woman that the prince
was punished 18 months ago by being
sent out to Join the German forces In
the field in Southwest Africa, The
baroness was at one time an actress
and played in the theaters of Berlin.
Her maiden name was Marie Sulzer-
The prince desired to marry her, but
this was impossible because of the in
equality of their social stations. Maria
Sulzer,. then obtained the title of
Baroness Liebenburg through marriage
with an Austrian baron at a suburban
registry office at Brixton Hill, London,
she and the baron parting at the con
clusion of the ceremony.
It is declared that the baron was to
receive a large sum of money for hav
ing conferred his title upon the act
ress so that it would be possible for her
to marry the prince, after she had se
cured a prearranged divorce from her
husband. It ' is understood, however,
that this financial transaction was never
completed and the divorce was never
obtained. In the meantime the prinoe
and the baroness have been living, it is
declared, under a transparent incognito
in Prussia. This went on until Emperor
William decided to intervene.

CHANGE IS UNPOPULAR, .
Union Pacific Officials May Return to
Old Division Points.
Rumor has it that the officials and
employes of the Union Pacific are not
pleased with the new arrangements of
having the crews of the freights stop
at Salina and go back to Ellis. It is
claimed that a new time table will not
be issued until the matter is given a
better trial. But If it is not more sat
isfactory than it has been another
change will be made. It is said the
change suggested is that several crews
do local work from Salina to Ellis and
that the remainder of the crews-run
through. This would accomplish more
than the present way.

It is believed that ths" Rnrimn
lines are barred from retaliating upon
the Hill lines, for the closing the Port-
iana gateway, by the defense thev
have to make to the proceedings of the
government to dissolve the combina
tion. The allied lines will have to con
tend that they are distinct and com
petitive. Force would be given to the
contention of the government if the
Southern Pacific should make common
cause with the Union Pacific. It would
ue consiaerea evidence of an illegal
merger of the lines.
The situation does not affect round
trip tOUriSt tickets fmm tho aat tn
Puget Sound cities through the Hunt
ington gateway from points west of
uenver. Portland must be made the
destination.baggage rechecked and new
tickets bought to continue the remain
der of the Journey. The following
statement has been made by A. D.
Charlton, assistant general passenger
agent of the Northern Pacific:
"The ruling of the commission re
quiring concurrence of our line In tar
iffs to the Pacific Northwest and -without
which through tickets via Port
land cannot be sold in the east, has no
effect on the interchange of business
covering roundtrip tickets. Only one
way business is affected. There is con
currence between our road and the
Southern Pacific in the ticketing of
Dusiness irom ualiiornia via the North
ern Pacific, for local as well as through
traffic.
Interchange California Business.
We also concur in the interchange
covering all westbound business into
California, We do not anticipate any
change in our relations with the South
ern Pacific, as it is a distinct and sep
arate line from the Oregon Navigation,
the Oregon Short Line and the Union
Pacific system, and we all know that
the Southern Pacific is a competitor of
the Oregon Navigation, the Oregon
Short Line and the Union Pacific for
this business. Portland loses nothing
as the gateway has been opened by
the Spokane, Portland & Seattle. Tour
ist business through Portland is not
confined to the Northern Pacific, but
may be conducted as usual over the
Great Northern and the Canadian
Pacific.
Notwithstanding this reassuring
statement, railroad men outside the
Hill lines are not comfortable, as a re
sult of the closing of the Portland gate
way. It is said that the cause lies
further back than the ruling of the
commission and is found in the refusal
of the Hill lines to participate in the
agreement - of transcontinental . lines.
This permitted Harriman lines taking
passengers through the Huntington
gateway and via Portland to the faouna,
to absorb the local fare between Port
land and Puget Sound cities. The re
fusal of the Hill lines was followed by
the action of the commission in ruling
that nonDarticipating roads could not
be legally forced to accept through
tickets of other lines. The object of the
Hill lines was obviously to get the long
haul from the east rather than permit
the Harriman lines to carry passen
gers clear to Portland before the Hill
lines earned anything on th traffic.
Passengers to Puget Sound from Den
ver or east of that city must travel via
Billings or St. Paul, unless they want
to pay the additional local fare from
Portland. It must also be paid on the
return Journey through Portland.
Points west of Denver including Salt
Lake City, Ogden and others, can still
sell tickets to Puget Sound stations
via Portland, since the territory Is not
competitive with the Hill Unes. To all
far eastern points the Dars nave Deen
put up by the interstate commission.
Will Out Down Tourist Travel.
In the opinion of railroad men the
effect will be to cut aown 10 a cuu
rorahio entent the customary sum
mer tourist travel to Puget Sound
through Portland, with corresponding
advantage to tne Jtim unes.

The officials played twice around
While Mr. Hurley had not. attracted
very much attention as a golf player,
except at his home in Topeka, yet he
had everybody, watching him yester
day. In going over the scores at the
end of the games, it was found that
Mr. Hurley had finlsned the first in
47 and the second in 45. This is con
sidered pretty fair playing in Wichita

are so many advantages and good
things in Wichita that every time I
visit here I find something new.
- "I am Just as anxious as anyone,"
continued Mr. Hurley, "to see a new

got to spend between $200,000 and
$300,000 on improvements in Wichita
within the next two years in order to

S.AVTA FE OPENS NEW HOTEL.
Fray Marcos, at Williams, Arizona,
. Under . Harvey . Management.
Williams, Ariz., March 18. Fray
Marcos, - the new Santa Fe station
hotel here, under the management of
Fred Harvey, was opened yesterday.
This newest of the Harvey houses
is a long, one-story building, on th
north side of the railroad track. Just
west of the old depot. It is built of
reinforced concrete, with wide por
ticos, like an old Spanish mission.
There are twenty-five bedrooms; some
of them with private bath.
The public rooms consist of a res
taurant, where all meals are served a
la carte; a lunch room, a lobby and a
large Indian room. The latter con.
tains easy chairs and writing tables.
The hotel has every modern con
venience, such as steam heat, electric
lights,. baths, etc. It is up to the Santa
Fe standard in every respect.
SANTA FE MAKES IXW RATES.
Will Announce Reduced Fares . to
. Eastern Sninmer Resorts.
It was announced authentically to
day from the office of the general
passenger agent of the Santa Fe, that
the low rates of last season wouM be
made again this season for eastern
points. This much, has been definite
ly decided1 although the rates to the
various points have not been fully
made out. There is a strong prob
ability that the Santa Fe may be able
to announce lower rates than last
season although this has not been
definitely decided as yet. The busi
ness of last year to eastern points was
larger by far than that of any pro
ceeding year ana the Santa Fe is de
sirous of retaining the same vohim
of business or if possible to increase
this tourist travel.
The rates which will be definitely
announced in a few days, will apply
to all Journeys to the Atlantio coast.

MAY MAKE RAIL CHANGES.
Members of Committee to Submit Re
port at Meeting.
Members of the steel rati committee
of which G. Li.. Peck of Pittsburg,
general manager of the Pennsylvania,
lines west, is chairman, have com
pleted their report to be submitted to
the American Railroad association at
its semi-ennual meeting.
Important changes in the specifica
tions have been decidied upon and the
controversies among Che members on
the committee have ended. The com-
miLiee na ueea woritiug nearly &
year, and its decision will affect near
ly every railroad in the United States.
A minority report recently made inti
mated that the Pennsylvania railway
had been able to secure from the steel
rail manufacturers what it desired,
probably on account of so many mill
being situated on the Pennsylvania
line.
Julius Kruttschnitt, director of
preparation of the Harriman line,
drew up a minority report and then
resigned from the committee, but an
nounced that he will carry on the:
fight for better steel rails single
handed. It is now reported that the:
committee "has decided to report in fa
vor of a rail with a somewhat broader
base and with a different sha-pet)
head. These changes, it is stated,
will make a better balanced rail and
one which will he anle to withstand
the strain of the great locomotive'
now in use when they strike the rail.

MOST PEOPLE DO NOT KNOW
CAUSE OF THEIR SICKNESS
Does human health depend on one
organ alone? This question is becom
ing widely discussed since L. T.
Cooper first advanced his theory that
the stomach is the true seat of life
and all health dependent upon it.
Mr. Cooper, who has met -with re
markable success in the sale of his
new medicine, believes that the stom
ach is responsible for most sickness,
and that this organ is weak in the
present generation. While discussing
this theory recently, he said: "I am
asked time and again to tell why my
medicine has made such a record
wherever I have introduced it. My
answer always is, 'because it restores
the stomach to a normal condition.
No one will deny that today there are
more half-sick men and women than
ever before. Nothing critical seems to
be the matter with them. They are
Just lialf-sick most of the time. They
don't know really what la the matter
with them. I have talked with thou
sands during the past two years, and
few knew Indeed what their trouble
was. One said nervousness, another
said kidney trouble, another . liver
complaint. -some constipation, or heart
trouble, or lung trouble. Many had
treated, as they called it, for most of
these diseases at different times. A
very common complaint is -'all run
down,' or tired all the time,' or 'no
appetite.' " .
"I know positively that every bit of
this chronic ill health is caused by
stomach trouble, and nothing else. My
New riscovery .puts the stomach in
sound condition In about six weeks.
Mighty few people can be sick with a
sound digestion. That is why my med
icine is selling at such a tremendou
rate. I have convinced many thou
sands of people that these things are
so, and the number is growing by
leaps and bounds."
" Among more recent converts to Mr.
Cooper's beliefs Is Mr. Edgar L. Hind
living at 6 Tappan Street, Everett,
Mass. Mr. Hinds has this to say on
the subject:-
. "I have suffered with stomach
trouble for eight years. I was not sick
enough to be in bed, but Just felt bad
all the time. My greatest trouble wa
that I always felt tired, would get up
in the morning feeling as tired a
when I went to bed.
"I had a very irregular appetite,
and was troubled with dizzy spells. If
I stood for any length of time, I
would have a dull pain In the lower
part of my back. I was nervous and
felt all the time as though something
terrible was going to happen. I tried
many kinds of medicine, but nothing
ever helped me.
"I had about given up all hope of
ever being in good health again, when
I heard so much of Cooper and de
cided to try his medicine. I took one
bottle of his New Discovery and wa
greatly surprised at the result. I
ct f n d 15 nniina In T
can now eat anything I wish, and feel
like a new man. I cheerfully recom
mend this medicine to all sufferers
from stomach trouble."
It is worth anyone's time, who is not
enjoying good health, to learn of Mr.
Cooper's wonderful preparations. We
are selling them la large quantities.
