makes this step necessary and I ills

Mr Afohler admitted t the Asso
ciated Press that beginning Monday
tte would bo a general reduction In
Iher
hours of employes In tho mechanical
departments ot this Union Pacific Ho
sid thCtvol no political significance
to this reduction declaring iwaa
the result only reduced traffic Ho
tated that Mr Harrlnmn had never
given him arly political instructions
but admitted It was his personal belief
noothe1
that President Iloosevclt and no
person was the cause of tho present
prsQ1
reduction In railroad traffic
He dictated a statement regarding
the report of the reduction printed In
a local paper aB follows
1 was called up by telephone at a
late hour In tho evening relative to n
rumored reduction in the force of men
employed in the mechanical depart
ment of our road and Inquiries were
made which to mo appeared rather In
traelve I was distinctly understood
that the conversation was of an in
dividual and not official character
Tho reduction in force is only made
t meet tho same percentage of reduc
tion In traffic and dealing directly as
ice are with this largo body of men
nod realizing the suffering that ensues
and having been through similar ox
rerlencns In previous years It Is not n
Iteant task t perform nor pleasant
lurroundlngs to view
I have received no political Instruc
tions from Mr Hurriman either direct
IF or Indirectly sInce my connection
with the Union Pacific railroad
Mr Mohler stated that there are
abut 300 men employed In the me
danlcal department at present but ad
mitted that the past four months had
witnessed a reduction in force of about
8000 men which Is greatly In excesS
of the number usually discharged at
t 1 season No further reduction of
force nlii bo made but hours of em
ployment Stated will be made as above In

Ing class contented selfconfident and
honestly ambitious Dr Emll G Hirsch
addressing the convention of tho Na
tional Society for the Promotion of
Industrial Education predicted that the
Installation of such a system nationally
will mean the moral salvation of the
American people
The speaker bewailed tho fact that In
the present Bchool system the Idea of
imparting and acquiring Information is
always In the foreground that the ap
peal Is to tho head and only Inciden
tally to the heart
Mrs Anna Carlln Spencer of the New
York City Society for Ethical Culture
attacked what sho called fallacies
relative to the Industrial education of
girls She asserted that while the num
ber of girls at any ono time employed
In Industrial pursuit Is comparatively
small tho actual number entering such
occupation In a given number of years
Is large the apparent discrepancy ly
ing In tho fact that few continue In
their vocation moro than four years
rite speaker argued that the fact that
their work merely Is temporary was
the strongest reason for seeing that
they wore placed In the best situations
possible for their development She
Inlsted that the first aim of tho trade
school should bo the giving of cultural
education with boys knowledge of
agriculture and of girls the knowledge
of houso arts

which has found Its expression In the
utterances of public men In tho public
prints and abovo all In the comic pa

Time cry which once roused this
country was Taxation with represen

of today demands representation with

en her work by scientific means only
Thcro IM nothing cither supernatural
or mtrnouloiu about her performance
nod ono may draw Ills own conclusions
HS to the exact method employed
In answer to questions idontlflca
elurton hlonUtca
tlon dexcrlptlans etc not all of Miss
Fay answers are correct nor Is It ex
peeled they should bo Silo Is not In
fallible but the proportion of trite
rind correct answers given Is suol that
no more mystifying remarkable per
formance Is now being given ter
Miss Pays porformanco Is of ne
cessity a difficult one both mentally
nail physically and there ore times
when slio becomes ovcrfntlgued tmas
answers at uch tints frequently go
astray
Tlin purpose of Miss Fay Is to Io
n brIght amusing picturesque anti
mysterious entertainment nnd with
out fraud
raut deceit or Impropriety and
the above explanation is therefore
Given to the public
Those people who have worked
peplo hovo orIIO them
selves up Into something bordering on
hysteria over Miss Fays work may
tost nsurcd that simo Is no spiritualist
Hlmply a clever llttlo woman who has
been making barrels of money for 20
years ormoro with tho same old net
How It I dona
HER HANDS An LOSE
First Miss Pays hands are looso
as socn as sho Is InsIde tho cabinet
Tile committee which Is a bona fldo
committee all right nays they are not
The committee Is mistaken
With her hands loose the ret Is easy
The bolls are rung and things thrown
around In 1 most spooky manner
TIED GOOD AND SOLID
Thoso who have witnessed the per
formance will remember how tho com
mittee selected from the audience
stitched bunds of linen around each
wrist and then stud strips of sticking
plaster over the banda to i
lnltel inndl BO as seciim
them doubly In place Tho loose ends
are then tied securely to a ring In a
board that Is nailed to the floor by the
imavo Mr Plngreo who nails tho board
tothl floor bringing tho ring on a line
with Miss Fays wrists A strip of lilt
aim IH then tel around time neck and
throat of tho medium and the ends
also secured to tho upright board with
nails driven home To mnke doubly
secure I rope Is tied around the unites
of Miss Fay and the end of It I i held
by ono of tho committee seated on
tho stage The screen Is then placed
around Miss Faa
THE CONCEALED SPRNG
Tho Instant she is concealed In the
cabinet by leaning back she releases
a spring which In turn releases I small
knIfe concealed In the ring Vlth this
blade she severs the linen bands at
the point of contact of her wrists and
she I free With her free hands she
unties the cord around her ankles and
keeps ono foot on It e that It will not
become slack With her free hands
she then plays tho guitar and other
Instruments and throws them on to the
tinge Getting her hands together be
hind her quickly the curtain li then
thrown hack by Mr Plngreo nnd tho
credulous gasp
ALi IN THE TIEING
Of course her assistant Mr Plngree
hue to pass 111 knife at tho end or the
act so the spirits can cut her loose
When the committee releases tho
subject the bands aro cut ul
tho sides of tho wrists I li
all In the tlelne I is tin old trick
much In voguo among fake Iph 1tua1
Istlo mediums
But after all it Is the questions and
ter
answers that stir up the enthusiastic
und bring 1 chorus of howl ltdoncs
In this act Miss Fay baa accomplices
It goes without uaylng The press
IlJos
agent works hard as he should and
the other attaches work equally strenu
ously but It is the two men down
stairs the two In tho balcony rind the
on beneath tho stage who do most
of time real work

One Dliscntlii Vote Today
To make Itself a fighting Cameo with
in tho nation and to compel from tha
general government the attention
thought to be duo arid farming the
second session of the Transmissouri
Dry Farming congress spent much
time today drawing up a platform for
future guidance
In this Important work time resolu
tions and executive committees were
the bodies most involved and they
worked while tho convention large
listened to tho regular program ol
speeches on various phases of dry land
tillage Onco this morning a real dis
cussion almost but not quite broke
away from control on the floor of the
house It was while Mr ChllcOtt chair
man of the resolutions committee was
rending a series of resolutions of a
complimentary nature
In the fourth or fifth page of thosj
read anti adopted us read was One
complimenting tho forest service t
its protection of tile range
I want that resolution read again
said Daniel Harrington the Invincible
debater from Bait Uake who today
displaced Alma Eldredgo and Tolton il
Hoover ns Interrogator
H was rood again Then Mr Har
rington said I own a little property
down couth and wo find the forest
service Interfering with our grazing
cattle on the public domain Wo want
as little mitKrvlslon ns we absolutely
are compelled to have to protect out
forests
MORPITT AS PEACEMAKER
Mr Morfltt the veteran delegate m
Oregon heard familiar phrases when
the Mrt > Joct of the federal government
and tho forests was mentioned
I want to say he declared that
I am In tho cattlo business myself as
well as the man from Utih but hen
I come ton Dry Farm congress I am ndt
dry farmer and not a cattle man It V
mention of the relationship of the foi i
oat preservation 1 toonttle luride only
to Its work in preserving the moisture
I think tho cattle business should b
kept out ot thin Dry Farm convention
Much applause greeted this speech
Mllner of Utah wanted the resolution
to go back to the committee ao thai
Harrington might offer an amendment
Cries of No no greeted this sugges
tion and on a vote tho resolution ap
proving the governments course was
pntraed with but ono dlssntlng vote
The resolution was one ota series
boosting everything done by the gov
ernment in its Investigations into the
matter of soil bulture all beaded by
the following Resolved that time
