FOUR BODIES IN A CAVE
MINER FORREST'S QIEER STORY
Remains of a Giant anil Consort
Found in a Perfect State
of Preservation.
Special to The Journal.
Tacoma, Wash., March 9. — H. F.
Forrest, a miner and prospector, who
says he came from Chicago last
year, arrived from Chehalis from the
base of Mount Tacoma, where he claims
to have found a remarkable cave, having
numerous passages, aggregating five miles
in length and containing a great wealth
of implement:; used by some pre-historic
rare.
A pasagi? from the main cavern
led Forrest to a flight of stone steps lead
ing downward sixty feet. At its bottom
was a long passageway containing sealed
stone vaults. The lid of one was removed,
disclosing two human bodies lying side by
side on a huge stone slab.
One was the body of a woman exceed
ing seven feet in height, and the other
that of a man seven feet ten inches tall.
Forrest said both bodies were frozen
solid and in a perfect state of preserva
tion.
The skeletons of two children were
found near by, besides numerous bones in
various parts of the cavern. Hammers,
chisels and other tools of tempered cop
per were numerous.

Stanley, Wis., March 9.—The whole city
is aroused by a report of the assassination
of Chief of Police John Moore, while as
sisting the deputy sheriff of Clark county
to arrest William Sowa, a Polander, living
three miles north.
Sowa's wife had sworn out a warrant for
him for whipping her and threatening to
kill her. The deputy sheriff asked Moore
to go out with him. Sowa refused to open
his door and fired several shots through
it at the officers.
The deputy hurried here without know
ing if Moore was killed or only wounded,
organized an armed posse and returned
to the scene.
A teamster just returned reports that
Moore was shot through the head and
killed.
TIMBER WILL BE SCARCE

yew lork Sun Special Sfvit>*
Manila, March 9.—ln regard to the effect
of the Hoar amendment preventing timber
cutting on public lands, the officers of the
forestry bureau stated to-day that there
were between twenty and thirty million
acres of timber land in the archipelago.
Only 47,000 acres are owned by individual:)
or companies, which will be inadequate to
supply public and private demands, and
they are the only lands that can be ex
ploited. Moreover, one half of these 47,000
acres belong to the Tabacler company,
which is already charging double the price
asked by the government for timber cut
from the public lands.
The amendment also revokes 460 licenses,
which have yielded a revenue of $15,000
per month.
Frank A. Brannigan, disbursing officer
to the American Philippines commission,
has been appointed treasurer of the Phil
ippine archipelago at a salary of $6,000.

< hartceM Against Professor Brown of
the Observatorj-.
Washington, March 9.—Charges have
been preferred by Captain Charles H.
Davis, superintendent of the United
States naval observatory, against Profes
sor Stimson J. Brown, head of the mathe
matical branch of the observatory.
The affair grows out of personal dif
ferences arising in connection with cer
tain legislation before congress. The
charges come under four main heads,
viz., that the accused resorted to fn
triguing methods to bring about the ad
ministration of affairs which he desired;
that he made statements as coming from
Captain Davis which that officer contro
verts; that he threatened the superin
tendent with attacks upon the floor of
congress, and, last, neglect of duty.
