A Most Exciting Tale.
The London Bookseller says of "Curly;"
"Spun with a vivacity that forcibly re
minds us of Bret Harte. The narrative 13
told (in his own uncouth yet humorous lan
guage) by one 'Chalkeye,' a typical cowboy,
reckless, yet good-heartei The tale Is real
ly most exciting, and it Is told in a naive
manner which arouses the interest and ex
cites the risibility of the reader to a marked
extent." "Curley" will be published as a
dally serial In The Star, the opening chap
ters appearing Saturday.
Representative Adams and His
Whipping Post Bill.
HIS BRIEF TALK ON IT
Says It Can't Be Laughed Out of
Court.
AN IOWA POSTMASTERSHIP
Mr. French is in Some Umbarrasment
Over the New Policy?A Lock
Breaker's Bequest.
Congress being in session today and those
distinguished gentlemen of the national
legislature who while calling at the White
House, are Inclined to be long on respects
and short on information, being otherwise
engaged, the White House drowsed in the
Spring sunshine and callers were few and
far between. Still, there were several in
cidents of a'most national significance whlcn
did their little bit to break the tedium of
this unstrenuous January 4. One of the
White House attaches found a modest and
blushing wood violet under a sheltering
tuft on the grassy slope opposite the door
of the executive offices. At least he said
he did. and as he had a violet to back his
assertions there were no pronounced dis
senters. It Is to be regretted, however,
that a hastily organized expedition which
went out on a search for arbutus and
black-eyed Susans In the White House
grounds failed to bring back any additional
evidence of the fact that a misplaced spring
has arrived In this vicinity.
"Bertie" Adams Calls.
The good wive3 of Washington whose
husbands are more vigorously and strenu
ously demonstrative than is considered good
form In polite society will be delighted to
learn that Representative Robert Adams
of Pennsylvania, known to his friends and
colleagues by the familiar and affectionate
appellation of "Bertie," was a caller at the
White House this morning.
Despite an unkind impression to the con
trary, this is not Mr. Adams' first term in j
Congress. In fact, he is quite In the way
of being a veteran legislator, and those
who doubt this assertion may find ample
substantiation in Mr. Adams' charmingly
written autobiography in the Congressional
Directory. From this it appear that this is
Mr. Adams' seventh term in Congress, and
that he has done several quite important
things while a member of that body.
But whatever Mr. Adams may have done
?in the past has apparently been dwarfed
in public estimation by his most recent
feat, that of introducing in the House a
bill providing for the punishment of the j
wife beaters of Washington at the whip
ping post. Mr. Adams is a bachelor, but he
?becomes quite indignant when it is sug
gested that this fact has anything to do
with his attitude in the matter.
Mr. Adams says he didn't talk about the
whipping post and the cat-o'-nine tails
with the President. It is learned on reli
able authority that the Pennsylvania rep
resentativo merely called to pay liis re
spects. ?
"You can't laugh this case out of court,
said Mr. Adams to a Star man, using the
broad "a" with telling effect. "The Presi- j
dent, the District Commissioners and the |
chief of police all indorse my bill. I shall
push it and think it has a good chance of
passage." Then Mr. Adams resumed his
goloshes and tripped down the White House
walk just as if this were his first term in
Congress instead of his seventh.
Some Other Callers.
Representative French of Idaho called
upon the President this morning to see
about the postmastership at Nampa, Idaho.
The policy recently determined upon of con
tinuing presidential postmasters in office as
long as their service is meritorious has af
fected the situation at Nampa, for prior
to the promulgation of the policy Mr.
French had been asked to name a man for
the position. But the republican state com
mittee didn't send in the name until after
the policy had been announced. Mr. French
this morning asked the Presif^nt if it would
not be possible to exempt this particular
case, and Mr. Roosevelt has promised to
give'the matter his attention.
Representative James McLachleiKof Cali
fornia called on the President this morn
ing to pay his respects and present a friend.
Representative Jesse Overstreet of Indiana
was another visitor. He had plenty of re
spects but no friend to present.
A Lock-Breaker.
A young man whose specialty is breaking
out of Jail with the permission of the au
thorities, called at the White House today.
He didn't see the President, but told As
sistant Secretary Barnes that he was trying
to secure permission to open the treasury
vaults, Just to show it could be done. Ac
cording to his story, he has opened the pri
vate vault at Nijni Novgorod, where the
Czar of all the Russias keeps his loose
change, and the banks at Berlin and Mauen
strausse, where some money and the im
mensely valuable paintings, operas, poems,
musical compositions, embroidery, knitted
socks and other things which are the work
of the German Emperor's own two hands,
are stored. The lock expert's request will
be given due consideration.

companies have notified the department
that land communication by wire across
the island from Puerto Plata southward is
Interrupted and business is taken only sub

here late today (Tuesday). Gen. Rodriguez
frught his way into town and then retired.
