‘“any_\Obstacles in Way of Appropria
: tion for Columbia Jetty.
Washington, Jan. 19. — Chairman
QGMn. of the honse committee on riv
ers and harbor 3, today gave a hearing
to Benators Fulton and Gearin, H. W.
Scott and J. N. Teal, of Portland. on
the Columbia river jetty project. Rep-
Tesentative Jones, of Washington, who
i 8 8 member of the committee, wae
algo present and took part in the dis
- Mr. Burton is thoroughly familiar
with the situation at the mouth of the
Columbia and is fully aware ot the fact
that it wonld be good business policy to
‘make an appropriation this session, not
80 much to extend the jetty as tc pro
tect the work that has been done dur
ing the past season. He realizes that,
unless an appropriation is made, the
#ea end of the jetty, and particalarly
the unprotected tramway, will be left
&t the mercy of the heavy seas and lia
rfiifle to be damaged to the extent of sev
eral hundred thousand dollars.
. But, while Mr Burton is in sym
pathy with the Oregon men and while
the recognizes the wisdom of an appro
priation to protect the new portion of
ithe jetty, he is not willing to give any
fassurances that such an appropriation
iwill be made. There is no general
river and harbor bill this session, and
it is a eerious question in Mr. Burton’s
imind whether it will be poseible to
jput through special legiglation in the
‘interest of only a few emergency pro
'j_ects. |
Mr. Burton stated, and the Oregon
delegation agreed with him, that it
would be utterly impossible to pass a
lgpecial bill making an appropriation
for this one project. Such a bill would
he amended in the house and senate by
the addition of appropriations for in
numerable proiects until in the end it
would become a regular river and bhar
bor bill, and under existing conditions
a bill of that character would stand no
show of passage.
~ But there are three or four other pro
jects of importance, where emergencies
lexist similar to that at the mouth of
the Columbia. Unless appropriations
‘are made this session for the preserva-
Ltion of these works, the government
{ will sustain a heavy loss. Mr. Burton
is considering the advisability of re
| porting an emergency bill making ap
%’“:4 iations for these epecific projects
#* he is not vet satisfied that

Mr. Burton, becanse of the condi
tion that exists in congress and because
of the difficulties that stand in the way
of special river and harbor legislation,
will hold out no promises to the Ore
gcn representatives, though he freely
admits his interest in Columbia river
improvement and expresses his per
sonal belief that an appropriation
should b 2 made.
An apnropriation of $1,800,000 can
not be had, but it is possible that
$400.000 may be procured. Mr. Bur
ton explains that it woald be impossi
ble to pass any bill which did more
than provide funds to protect work al
ready done.
Russian Revolution Spreads to Dots
of Land in Baltic.
St. Petersburg, Jan 18.—in addition
to the Caucasus and a few localities in
Siberia, the open revolt is now chiefly
confined to small islands off the Baltic
coast, where the difficulty of landing
troops hampers the subjugation of the
revolutionists. The icebreaker Yermak,
carrving detachcments of marines and
infantry, has been unable to reach -the
principal island, Osel, at the entrance

Expect To Get Increase.
Indianapolie, Ind.. Jan. 19.—Adjuei
ment of the wage scale, which was ef
fected at a meeting held at 7 o’clock
night, was the first etep towards the
paramount business of the convewntion
of the United Mineworkers. That an
increase in wages will be the principal
feature of the report of the scale com

is very little doubt among the majority
of the delegates ‘hat their requests for
more money will be readily conceded
by the op.erators when they meet in

Appointment of Triumvirate Dowie's
Accession to Demands of Fol
lowers and Creditors.
Chicago, Jan. 18.—John Alexander
Dowie has been permanently removed
from financial control of the Zion City
industries, according to assurances giv
en the big creditors by the financial
agents of the community. The ap
pointment of the triumvirate, with
great ostentation, it is mow declared,
merely cloaked Dowie’s accession to the
demands of Zion City and ite creditors
that all business arrangements be tak
en from his hands, leaving him religi
ous leader only.
The awakening of the people of
Zion has come at last, according to one
of the large creditors in Chicago today.
Fy ““They have been open in saying,’”’
'he declared, ‘‘that they awoke too late
‘and found that in Dow e they had
‘something‘ in the nature of a cross bhe
‘tween a ‘white elephant’ and ‘the old
man of the rea’ hitched on them.
““Dowie has squandered money in
a most profligate manner,”’” said this
creditor. ‘‘His trip around the world
cost over $1,000,000. He drew on the
treasury for it. The trip to New York
cost half as much. It was given out
that the followers paid their own ex
peuses. This was hardly true. The
recent trip to Mexico was another ex
pensive luxury for the old man. He
spent thousands there. And for all
these expenditures all Zion City has
got out of it has been a few pale fire

France Elects Fallieres, Leader of
Radical Elements.
Paris, Jan. 18.—Clement Armand
Fallieres, president of tha senate, was
today elected president of the republie,
to succeed Emile Loubet. His only
rival was M. Doumer, president of the
chamber of deputies. The total vote
in the national assembly, consisting of
the senate and chamber of deputies
meeting jointly, was 849, and the vote
wae: Fallieres, 449; Doumer, 871;
scattering, 28; not voting, 1.
Althongh several candidates were
meuntioned for the presidency in suc
ceesion to M. l.oubet, including M.
Fallieres, president of the eenate; M.
D wamer, president of the chamber of
deputiee; M. Barrien, ex-minister of
justice; and M. Leon Bourgeois, the
former premier, the real contest was
hetween M. Fallieres and M. DNoumer.
M. Fallieres had the support of the ad
vanced Socialist and Radical groups,
constituting the ‘amous party which
sus'ained the Combes ministry. M.
Doumer, however, was a formidable
oppon-nt, whose election to the presi
dency of the chamber of deputies last
vear, after breaking away from his
former connection with the famous par
ty previousty referred to, gave the first
blow to M. Combes.
When the first figuress were given
out, there was an outburst of enthuei
asm, which was renewed after the cor
rected figures, giving Faillieres 449,
thue increasing his already clear major
ity, were announced.
M. Fallieres returned tn Parig from
Versailles, escorted by a military guard
of honor. He will take over his new
‘duties February 18.

ant who deale in machetes informed the

questioned recently by A. L. Bresler,
an American, formerly a resident of
Detroit, who is the Nicaraguan consul
here, with reference to the purchase of
10,000 machetes for the Venezuelan
government. The negotiations, the
merchant said, were interrupted by the
sailing for New York yesterday of Mr.
Bresler, who will goon return to Ha
vana. Mr. Bresler lived for gome time
in Venezuela.

mercial club committee baving in
charge arrangement for the ‘‘See
Americal First’’ conference in this city,
January 25 and 26 announces that rep
resentation is now assured from all the
trans-Mississippi states and from Du
lath in the North to New Orleans on

Pneumonia Takes Away Millionaire
Chicago Merchant.
New York, Jan. 17.—Marshall Field,
of Chicago, millionaire merchant and
a leader in th dry goods trade of the
world, died at the Holland house in
thie city at 4 o’clock yesterday after
noon, after an illnees extending over
more than a week, beginning with &
bad cold and developing quickly into
pneumonia, which affected both lunges.
Mr. Field, although 70 years old, made
a fight against the disease which the
attending physicians characterized as
braver and stronger than would have
been expected of a man many years his
junior. Mrs. Field and other mem
bers of the family were with him when
he' lapsed into the period of uncon
sciousness which ended in death. Imn
an adjoining room were many persons
prominent in the business and eacial
life of Chicago, intimate associates of
Mr. Field, who had gone to New York
when the seriousness of his cond:tion
was made known to them.
An outline of the funeral arrange
ments was decided upon last night.
The body will be taken to Chicago this
morning on a epecial train over the
New York Central and Lake Shore sys
tems. There will be no service of any
gort in this city. It is planned to hold
the funeral service in Chicago at a date
to be fixed, either from the Field resi
dence on Prairie avenue or from the
First Presbyterian church, whose pas
tor, Rev Dr. Morrison, will, in either
case, be the officiating clergyman.

isucb work econcmically and continu
ously, with~ut the waste incident to
