Pres. Wilson to Inspect
Panama Canal in Summer
' ?
TRENTON, N. J.. Fob. 5.?Chair
I man William F. McCombs of tho Dem
ocratic National Committee called on
Gov. Wilson yesterday. They 1ml
i lunch together and spent three hours
! discussing the political situation.
The Chairman said they had dis
cussed questions of a general nature,
and Gov. Wilson said:
"Oh. McCombs and I always talk
about the same things. I have not
seen him for several weeks. He has
' been looking Into the situation in sov
!eral States and that is what wt talked
j of principally. 1 was very glad to re
I ceivo the news he had to impart, as
| he is an expert."
The Governor denied the report
; that he was to make a trip to the
i Far West, but as to a visit to Panama
ihe said:
"I hope to be able to get down to
the Isthmus at the close of the extra
session. I want to get down there if
1 can before the water is let in?that
is. before all the water is put in.
There is some there now. and I want
to get there before the water has hid
den the most interesting part of the
construction work on the canal."
The advisability of visiting Panama
had been urged on Gov. Wilson earl
ier in the day by Congressman Coving
ton. of Maryland. Col. Goethals. who
was here recently, said that the water
would be turned in some time in July,
i which makes it apparent that the new
President will visit Panama about the
end of June and that he has hopes
tiiat tlie extra session will have ad
Mourned before that time. The latest
date set for the meeting of the extra
session is .March 17.
Joscphus Daniels, of Raleigh, N. C.,
who lias been mentioned us a possi
bility for the Post mantels-Generalship,
called on the Governor once in the
morning with a delegation which de
sires that the Wilsons accept a sum- ?
mer home at Asheville, N. C. The
delegation saw .Mrs. Wilson at Prince
ton first and then visited the Gover
nor at Trenton. Neither the Gover
nor Mrs. Wilson made a promise
vith reference to the offer.
The second time Mr. Daniels called
he remained with the Governor only a
few minutes. I.ater the President-el
?ct stated that the Senatorial situa
tion had been discussed.
Mr. Spanier, a representative of cer
tain American interests in Italy, also
ailed on the Governor. Little was
known of his mission.
"We talked over the seven sisters
-the corporation bills," said the Gov
rnor in explanation.
Of another of his callers Governor
Wilson said: "Louis Wylle of the
New York Times canio to mention sev
eral men whom he has been favorably
impressed with, not for particular po
sitions, but generally."

GET RAILROAD PASSES
DENVER, Feb. f>.?More than sixty
witnesses, including shippers and rail
road officials, have been subpoenaed
for tlie hearing which opened yes
terday before Interstate Commerce
Commissioner Harlan into the alleged
lilegal and improper use of railroad
j passes.
"This investigation will not stop
with a mere report," said Commis
sioner Harlan, "but prosecutions will
follow wherever we find there has
been a violation of the law. There
will be a recommendation for addi
tional State legislation against the use
of passes, if we find here what we
have been told exists."

SOUND GOV. LEAGUE
WILL FIGHT SOCIALISTS
The Sound Government League,
headed by C. H. Harwood, of San
Francisco, is maintaing a lobby in Sac
ramento, Calif., during the session of
the Legislature with a view to watch
ing for "Socialistic bugs" in any of
the legislation which is proposed. The
League has been formed with the pri
mary object of counteracting the agi
tation of radical Socialists, according
to Mr. Harwood, who declared recent
ly that many of the bills which are
likely to be presented to the Legis
lature will have an underlying spirit
of Socialism in them which will be
hidden by the surface polish. It is to
get below the surface and show the
lawmakers the real Socialistic meas
ures that the League will maintain
its lobby there.

THE OLD COAL STORY I
TOLD IN A NEW WAYj
Only one coal mine in all Alaska
was operated commercially in 1911,
but a little coal was mined at several
places in the territory, chiefly by those
who themselves utilized tho product
(not even this has been allowed dur
ing the past year.) The total esti
mated output of coal in 1911 was 900
tons; the total output in 1910 was
1,000 tons. Nine hundred tons of coal
mined in one year in a territory,
known to contain more coal than such
beds as Pennsylvania! Fifty-seven
hundred square miles are known to:
contain anthracite and high grade bi
tuminous coal and half as much again
known to contain a low grade bitu-:
mlnous coal and this from exhaustive ?
surveys made by the United States ge-1
ological surveys in all parts of Alas- "
ka. Wherever a reconnaissance was 1
made coal was found; at Cook inlet,
Matanuska, Nenana, bering river, Cir
cle, Colville river, as far north as Pt.
Harrow, Lisbourne, Norton sound and '
down to the Alaska peninsula. From
1899 to 1912 there has been consumed
in Alaska 1,440,104 tons of coal. Of
this, 492,066 tons was imported from
the States, chiefly from Washington;
908,577 tons, nearly double, was for- ?
eign importation, chiefly bituminous,
from British Columbia, and 36,314 -
tons produced in Alaska. At the pros- ^
ent rate we can expect to find that ?
there was no coal produced in Alaska !
in the past year and that practically j
all importations were foreign.?Wm. ?

Better than the Best
WITHOUT our knowledge, the Columbus Labo
ratories of Chicago tested Fisher's Blend
Flour for a Dakota Wheat Grower. The an
alysis ranked Fisiier's Blend Flour higher in Gen
eral Average, Gluten Quality, Water Absorption and
Loaf Value than the best Dakota all-Hard Wheat Lat
ent Flour, which is the recognized standard for bread
stuff efficiency. Fisher's Blend Flour is a scientific
combination of Eastern Hard Wheat and Western Soft
Wheat, preserving the best qualities of each. It costs
you from 20 to 2"># less than a straight Eastern Hard
Wheat Flour?docs
