O'CONNOR Latest Novelties in Tobacco Jars and Pipe Racks at Burford's BABY CONSERVATION IS | BEGAN BL GOVERNMENT Uncle Sum is spending millions yeur ly to educate the people in the breed ing and raising of live stock, farm products, and the like, but what is he doiug about the greatest of all nation al products?the baby crop? Creation of the Children's Bureau was a tardy recognition of the neces sity for Federal aid in the conserva tion of babies. In her first authorized interview, Miss Julia Lathrop, chief of that government department, dis cussed her aims und purposes to that end. says the Washington Times of April 24. She explained how investi gators, now at work, are making sur veys of industrial cities, discovering all about the one-year babies, why they die, why they flourish, and why they merely cling feebly to the thread of life. When this survey is completed?and ! it will not be a dry-as-dust scientific, medical collection of data?the bu reau will take the next step in child life, and will successively study and report on the teething period, early childhood, school days, the period of adolescnce. The results of these stud ies will be given to the mothers of the country, so that all of them? from the mansion to the hovel?can read and understand the lesson they impart. / Formed 10 serve ivccus. "This bureau has been formed to serve the needs of the 29,500,000 chil dren in America," Miss Lathrop de clared. in her outline of the scope of the new dpartineent. "It Is trying to llnd out why children flourish; why ; they are weak and puny; why they die. J It used to be a cheerful medical theory! that it was a good thing weakly chil dren died in infancy; that it meant only the stroug and well grew up. That theory has been exploded. To day medical authorities say that the death of these babies handicap their brothers and sisters, and that there is 110 surer indication of the health rate of a nation than the death rate! of babies less than one year old. "The first great step in this work lias been an inquiry begun to deter mine infant mortality. The bureau is i securing data in a series of industrial I towns as to the fate of children with in the period of a year from birth. It is binding out just how these children have fared?whether they are healthy, dead, or weak and ailing. "No medical data is sought. The social and economic condition of the parents; their lives, industrially and hygienicallv. before and since mar riage: the protection the city is giv ing the baby in the way of clean I streets, milk inspection, disposition of sewage, and food shop regulations, are the things we want to know. "The composite reports, to be pub lished in a series of monographs.; such as the bulletin on milk, plant; and animal industry, will be a series' of pictures of infant life as we have found it. It will tell how children have passed the first year of their lives, why some have died, and others lived." PANAMA CANAL READY IN EIGHT MONTHS WASHINGTON,, May 9? Unless the Culebra slides present unanticipated obstacles, the Panama canal will be open within the next eight months, ac cording to word received here from Col. G. W. Goethals. Captain Amund son, discoverer of the South Pole, will pilot the first ship through the "big ditch."

NAVAL ASTRONOMER IS PLEASED WITH TEST WASHINGTON.

"If anything the communcation es tablished between the two high-pow ered stations last month." said Prof. 1 Hall, "were beyond expectations. It 1 was the first time that messages had 1 been exchanged such distances and they were exchanged with such a de gree of accuracy that the experiments will result in a great benefit to science."

Columbia Golden Drop Tacoma UNDERWOOD SHOWS DANGER IN BUREAUCY J. J. Underwood, writing in Lea lie's lor April 24, says tiiat while no sane man in either the Last or the Weat opposes wise conservation, yet the of tense of allowing millions of feet qf timber to lie rotting in the forests while the -price of lumber steadily advances is breeding rebellion in ev erybody not personally interested in the profits of the practice, lie sug gests that the altitude of the United Stales government toward Alaska for the last ten years would give color to the surmise that fear has couie to take the place of conlideiice in Amer ica. With a territory one-lith the to tal area of all the States, this terri tory is held by legislation to a sparse population of 04,354 persons. Compares Poorly With Finland. With a territory comprising 25 per cent more square miles than the coun tries of Norway, Sweden and Finland combined, in identically the same lati ture, and far richer in resources than they, it supports a smaller popula tion than many towns of the .Middle and Western States, while those coun tries have a prosperous population of more than 10,000,00b. The arable land of Alaska is greater than that of the Norseman's country, and its mineral wealth, even in its present state of nondevelopment, is far in excess of that of those populous States. The Alaska bureau 01 me aeaiut Chamber of Commerce recently issued a set of maps showing exactly the re lation of Alaska in area to the United States, and also to many other coun tries. One of these maps shows Nor way, Sweden and Finland lying in the lap of Alaska, as it were. Our North ern possession extends considerably beyond the confines of the three coun tries at almost every point. The fol lowing table gives an accurate esti mate of the comparative areas: Comparison With Norse Lands. Sq. Miles Fop. Alaska 486,400 64,356 Norway 124,445 2,292,698 Sweden 122,278 5,476,441 Finland 144,255 3,015,700 441,576 10,884,839 .Mr. Underwood emphasizes the point that the domination or the West by the East through conservation meth ods founded on theories and not on facts is gradually bringing to the front the dangerous question of states' rights which once, under dif ferent conditions, but from similar causes, separated North and South and brought on a civil war. He con tnds with good show of reason that instead of individual slavery of the black man to owners of the same lo cality, conservation in its present atti tude toward the people is enslaving one community to another community in a distant part of the Union. Mr. Underwood's article is replete with well digested facts set forth in an illuminating manner. It offers food for serious contemplation on a subject most vital to every American. ALASKA LEGISLATURE AND HOME RULE After sixty days ot' labor the first j Alaska Legislature adjourned 011 May I 1st. Many have been anxious to crit icise, and perhaps in some respects the work done?or left undone?was subject to criticism. Human nature is weak and even Alaskans are not ' without fault. However, we can say that the mistakes made are our own, made by our own representatives, and ' they are not greater nor any harder to bear than the countless other mis takes that have marked the conduct "t of Alaska affairs. Again, there are j those who expected that this little J band of men. hurriedly selected and j some hurried from their distant homes *j to take part in the first step for home ? rule, would be able in sixty days to ! revolutionize Alaska affairs and es- * tablish all things needed for her com- ? fort. A thing impossible. Another ! two years will roll around and anoth- \ er legislature will be in session at Ju- ? neau, having for their help the foun- ? ilation laid by this first body and for ! their guidance the mistakes made. ' 4 During the intervening time Congress may take note of the dignified acts of our first law-making body and extend to us still greater privileges and pow ers. All the time we are conscious that we ire coming into own rights as citizens of the United States. This alone gives to Alaskans a justification for the proud boast that they are 110 longer classed with serfs and depend ants, but are now members and a part of the power that rules among the peo ples of the world.?Douglas News.

Right of Federal judges arbitrarily to set aside verdicts of juries except by grunting now trials, lias been denied by the Su preme Court of the United Suites in an opinion by Justice Van Devanter. The court reversed a decree of the third circuit court of appeals in set ting aside a verdict for the New York Life Insurance Company in a suit by Mrs. Lillian Slocum, of Pittsburgh upon a $20,000 policy of her husband.: The court hus declared that the ap pellate court had assumed the pre rogatives of the jury in overturning a verdict in favor of Mrs. Slocum in the State court, in accordance with Pennsylvania legal custom. Justices Holmes, Lurton, Pitney, and j Hughes concurred in the ruling today,! but dissented from establishment of i a hard and fast rule which would not j give Federal judges authority to scru-j tinize jury verdicts to decide if the | facts warranted the verdicts and to i prevent lengthy litigation. ICELANDERS SETTLE ON NORTH PACIFIC A good start has been made by the Icelandic settlement on the shores of Masset. Inlet. A few weeks ago The Empire reported the arrival here of a party of Icelanders from Manitoba who had come to the coast to look j into the possibilities of Graham Isl and. Since then they have purchased half a mile of waterfrontage near Sew all City, and present prospects seem to warrant tne expectation mat a large and thriving community will | soon be in evidence at this place. The I land lias been divided into twenty four allotments, each with a water frontage of loo feet, Mind one and a quarter acres. Extending farther back, there are Ave plots included in each of these waterfront holdings, so that the owner lias the benefit of gar dening or farming 011 a small scale, as well as having a very considerable amount of land which gives him ac cess to the water. This is after the method of French settlements along the River St. Lawrence. The settlers appear to consider the outlook promis ing. There is clearing to be underta ken, for the growth of timber is heavy, but once these dilllculties are over come. progress will be easier. .More1 arrivals are expected from Manitoba.'
