ANOTHER TWIST IN SHOOTING OF EAGLE Justice Dismisses the Case Against Hunter For Error in the Law Lewistown, Pa., Dec. B.—The Pefferj eagle-shooting case has had more i twists and turns in it than any case j ever brought before a magistrate here. Yesterday Justice VanNatta dis missed the charge of shooting the bird I against the hunter, relieving him from paying a fine of $lO, the prescribed penalty for the offense. It is due to a typographical error that Justice VanNatta felt himself justified In dismissing the charge. In the index of the 1913 edition of the game laws, edited by Secretary Kalb fus, of the State Game Commission, appears this statement: "Eagles, not protected." Reference to the law, however, shows by inference that eagles are protected. The species is not mentioned in the list of protected wild birds. Attorney Aikens, acting for Peffer, has been victor in this phrase of the complicated case. A big legal battle will now be fought in the courts here for possession of the bird confiscated by the two game wardens. FIRST DEFENDER BURIED Special la The Telegraph Lewistown, Pa., Dec.

For four years I was troubled by hemorrhages from the bladder and was not able to get any doctor who could help me. I was in such shape that sleep at night was Impossible on account of distressing symptoms. While bending over I would be I stricken with such a pain that it was j impossible for me to straighten up. | Mr. Henry, one of our leading drug- j gists, advised Dr. Kilmer's Swamp- j Root; although I never had any faith \ in patent medicines, as a last resort j I purchased a dollar bottle of Swamp- i Root. I noticed a decided change and | after using two bottles I was com- | pletely cured. It seemed remarkable j that I should be cured so quickly I after being ill so long.

Anyone can prove by trial "There's a Reason" For GRAPE-NUTS Sold by Grocers Everywhere DEFENSES OF SAYS [Coutlnued From First l'age] principles and ideals we never shall have, a large standing army. If ask ed, "Are you ready to defend your selves ' we reply, 'Most assuredly,' to the utmost; and yet we shall not turn America into a military camp. We will not ask our young men to spend the best years of their lives making sol diers of themselves. There is another sort of enemy in us. It will know how to declare Itself and make itself effec tive should occasion arise. And espe cially when half the world Is on Are we shall be careful to make our moral insurance against the spread of the conflagration very definite and cer tain and adequate indeed. "Let us remind ourselves, therefore, of the only thing: we can do or will do. We must depend in every time of national peril, in the future as in the past, not upon a standing army, nor yet upon a. reserve army, but upon a fcltlzenry trained and accustomed to arms. It will be rislit enough, right American policy, based upon our ac customed principles and practices, to provide a system l>y which every citi zen who will volunteer for the training may lie made familiar with the use of modern arms, the rudiments of drill and maneuver, and the maintenance and sanitation of camps. We should encourage such training anil make It a means of discipline which our young men will learn to value. "It is right that we should provide it not only, but that we should make it as attractive as possible, and so in duce our young men to undergo it at such times as they can command a little freedom and can seek the phy sical development they need, for mere health's sake, if for nothing else. Every means by which such things can be stimulated Is legitimate, and such a method smashes a true American Ideas. Vrges Guard Development "It is right, too, that the National Guard of the States should be devel oped and strengthened by every means which is not inconsistent with our ob ligations to our own people or with the established policy of our govern ment. And this, also, not because the time or occasion specially calls for such measures, but because it should be our constant policy to make these provisions for our national peace and safety. Would Reverse Policy "More than this carries with it a reversal of the whole history and character of our policy. More than this, proposed at this time, permit me to say, would mean merely that we had lost our self-possession, that wo had been thrown off our balance by a war with which we have nothing to ao, whose causes cannot touch us, whose very existence affords us opportuni ties of friendship and disinterested service which should make us asham ed of any thought of hostility or fear ful preparations for trouble. This is assuredly the opportunity for which a people and a government like ours were raised up, the opportunity not only to speak but actually to embody and exemplify the counsels of peace and amity and the lasting concord which is based on justice and fair and generous dealing. . Believes in Defense Only "A powerful navy we liavo always regarded as. our proper and natural means of defense; and it has always been of defense that we have thought, never or aggression or of conquest. Hut who shall tell us now what sort or navy to build? We shall take leave to be strong upon the seas, in the fu ture as hi the past; and there will be no thought or offense or of provoca tion in that. Our ships are our natural bulwarks. When will the experts tell us just what kind we should con struct—and when will they be right h>r ten years together, ir the relative efficiency of craft or different kinds and uses continues to change as we have seen It chunge under our very eyes in these last tew months? "But I turn away from the subject. It is not new. There is no new need to discuss it. We shall not alter our attitude toward it because some amongst us are nervous and excited. We shall easily and sensibly agree up on a policy of defense. The question has not changed its aspects because the times are not normal. Our policy will not be for an occasion. It will be conceived as a permanent and settled thing, which we will pursue at all sea sons, without haste and after a fashion perfectly consistent with the peace of the world, the abiding friendship of States, and the unhampered freedom of all with whom wo deal. Let there we no misconception. The country has been misinformed. We have not been negligent of national NATION NOT NEGLECTED, PRESIDENT IN MESSAGE defense. We are not unmindful of the great responsibility resting upon us. We shall learn and profit by the lesson of every experience and every new cir cumstance; and what is needed will be adequately done." Has Hopes For Peace To peace in Europe the President referred briefly: , "We are the champions of peace and of concord," he said. "And wo should be very jealous of this distinc tion which we have sought to earn. Just now we should be particularly Jealous of it because it is our dearest present hope that this character and reputation may presently, in God's providence, bring us an opportunity such as has seldom been vouchsafed any nation, the opportunity to coun sel and obtain peace in the world and reconciliation and a healing settlement of many a matter that has cooled and interrupted the friendship of nations. This is the time above all others when we should wish and resolve to keep our strength by self-possession, our In fluence by preserving our ancient prin ciples of action." The President spoke in full as fol lows: "Gentlemen of the Congress: "The session upon which you are now entering will be the closing ses sion of the Sixty-third Congress, a Congress, I venture to say, which will long be remembered for the great body of thoughtful and constructive work which It has done, in loyal re sponse to the thought and needs of the country. I should like in this ad dress to review the notable record and try to make adequate assessment of It; but no doubt we stand too near the work that has been done and are our selves too much part of it to play the part of historians toward it. "Moreover, our thoughts are now more of/ the future than of the past. While we have worked at our tasks of peace the circumstances of the whole age have been altered by war. What we have done for our own land and our own people we did with the best that was in us, whether of character or of intelligence, with sober enthu siasm and a confidence in the princi ples upon which we were acting which sustained us at every step of the diffi cult undertaking; but it Is done. It has passed from our hands. It Is now an established part of the legislation of the country. Its usefulness, its effects will disclose themselves in ex perience. What chiefly strikes us now, as we look about us during these clos ing days of a year which will be for ever memorable in the history of the world, is that we face new tasks, have I been facing them these six months, must face thein in the months to come —face them without partisan feeling, like men who have forgotten every thing but a common duty and the fact that we are representatives of a great people whose thought is not of us but of what America owes to herself and to all mankind in such circumstances as these upon which we look amazed and anxious. War Interrupts Trade 1 "War has not only interrupted the means of trade, but also the processes of production. In Europe it is destroy ing men and resources wholesale and upon a scale unprecedented and ap palling. There is reason to fear that t the time Is near, if it be not already at hand, when several of the countries of Europe will find It difficult to do for their people what they have hitherto been always easily able to do—many essential and fundamental things. At any rate, they will need our help and our manifold services as they have I never needed them before; and wo I should be ready, more fit and ready than we have ever been. Needs In Europe | "It is of equal consequence that the ; nations whom Europe has usually sup | plied with innumerable articles of ' manufacture and commerce of which | they are in constant need and with out which their economic development halts and stands still can now get only a small part of what they formerly imported and eagerly look to us to supply their all but empty markets. This is particularly true of our own neighbors, the States, groat and small, of Central and South America. Their lines of trade have hitherto run chiefly athwart the seas, not to our ports but to the ports of Great Britain and of the older continent of Europe. 1 do I' not stop to inquire why, or to make any comment on probable causes. What interests us just now Is not the I explanation but the fact, and otir duty land opportunity in the presence of it. Here are markets which we must sup ply, and we must find the means of action. The United States, this great people for which we speak and act, should be ready, as never before, to serve Itself and to serve mankind; ready with its resources, its energies, its forces of production, and its means of distribution. "It Is a very practical matter, a matter of ways and means. We have the resources, but are we fully ready to use them? And, If we can make ready what we have, have we thf means at hand to distribute It? We are not fully ready; neither have we the means of distribution. We are willing, but we are not fully able. We have the wish to serve and to serve greatly, generously; but we are not prepared as we should be. We are not ready to mobilize our resources at once. We are not prepared to use them immediately and at their best, without delay and without waste. Development Hindered "To speak plainly, we have grossly erred in the way in which we have stunted and hindered the development of our merchant marine. And now. when we need ships, we have not got them. We have year after year de bated, without end or conclusion, the best policy to pursue with regard to the use of the ores and rorests and water powers of our national domain in the rich States of the West, when we should have acted; and they are still locked up. The key is still turned upon them, the door shut fast at which thousands of vigorous men, full of Initiative, knock clamorously for admittance. The water power of our navigable sterams outside the national domain also, even in the Eastern States, where we have worked and planned for generations, is still not used as it might he. because we will and we won't; because the laws we have made do not intelligently bal ance encouragement against restraint. We withhold by regulation. "I have come to ask you to rernedy and correct these mistakes and omis sions, even at this short session of a Congress which would certainly seem to have done all the work that could reasonably be expected of it. The time and the circumstances are extra ordinary, and so must our efforts be also. Urges Prompt Passage "Fortunately, two great measures, finally conceived, the one to unlock, with proper safeguards, the resources of the national "domain, the other to encourage the use of the navigable waters outside that domain for the generation of power, have already passed the House of Representatives and are ready for immediate consid eration and action by the Senate. With the deepest earnestness I urge their prompt passage. In them both we turn our backs upon hesitation and makeshift and formulate a gen uine policy of use and conservation, in the best sense of those words. We owe the one measure not only to the people of that great western country for whose free and systematic devel opment, as it seems to me. our legis lation lias done so little, but also to the people of the nation as a whole; and we as clearly owe the other in fulfillment ol' our repeateu promises that the water power of the country should In fact as well as in name be put at the disposal of great industries which can make economical and profitable use of it, the rights of the public being adequately guarded the while, and monopoly in the use pre vented. To have begun such measures and not completed them would indeed mar the record of this Congress very seriously. I hope and confidently be lieve that they will be completed. "And there is another great piece of legislation which awaits and should receive the sanction of the Senate; I mean the bill which gives a larger measure of self-government to the people of the Philippines. How better, in this time of anxious questioning and perplexed policy, could we show our confidence in the principles of liberty as the source as well as the expression of life, how better could we demon strate our own self-possession and steadfastness in the courses of justice and disinterestedness than by thus go ing calmly forward to fulfill our prom ises to a dependent people, who will now look more anxiously than ever to see whether we have indeed the liberality, the unselfishness, the cour age. the faith we have boasted and professed. I cannot believe that the Senate will let this great measure of constructive justice await the action of another Congress. Its passage would nobly crown the record of these two years of memorable labor. Toll Xot Complete "But I think that .you will agree with me that this does not complete the toll of our duty. How are we to carry our goods to the empty markets of which 1 have spoken if we have not the ships? How are we to buifd up a great trade if we have not the cer tain and constant means of transporta tion upon which all profitable and useful commerce depends? And how ,are we to get the ships If we wait for the trade to develop without them? To correct the many mistakes by which we have discouraged and all but de stroyed the merchant marine of the country, to retrace the steps by which we have, it seems almost deliberately, withdrawn our Hag from the seas, ex cept where, here and there, a ship of war is bidden carry it or some wan dering yacht displays it, would take a long time and involve many detailed Items of legislation, and the trade which we ought immediately to han dle would disappear or find other channels while wo debated the items. "The case is not unlike that which confronted us when our own conti nent was to be opened up to settle ment and industry, and we needed long lines of railway, extended means of transportation prepared before hand, if development was not to lag intolerably and wait Interminably. We lavishly subsidized the building of transcontinental railroads. We look back upon that with regret now. be cause the subsidies led to many scan dals of which we are ashamed; but we - know that the railroads had to be built, and if we had it to do over again we should of course build them, but in another way. Therefore X pro pose another way of providing the means of transportation, which must precede, not tardily follow, the de velopment of our trade with our neighbor states of America. It may seem a reversal of the natural order of things, but it is true, that (he routes of trade must be actually opened— by many ships and regular sailings and moderate charges before streams of merchandise will flow freely and protably through them. Legislation Badly Needed "Hence the pending shipping bill, discussed at the last session but as yet passed by neither House. In my judgment such legislation Is impera tively needed and can not wisely be postponed. The government must open these gates of trade, and open them wide; open them before It Is altogether profitable to open them, or altogether reasonable to ask private capital to open them at a venture. It is not a question of the government monopolizing the field. It should take action to make It certain that trans portation at reasonable rates will be promptly provided, even where the carriage is not at first profitable; and then, when the carriage has become sufficiently profitable to attract and engage private capital, and engage it in abundance, the government ought to withdraw. I very earnestly hope that the Congress will be of this opin ion, and- that both Houses will Adopt this exceedingly Important bill. "The great subject of rural credits They Gave Me Up to Die. I I^Took Mrs. Carrie Bode, Lebanon, Oregon, Says: [ lam To-Day the Wonderofj \ Lebanon. Cured of Lung Trouble." \ still remains to be dealt with, and it is a matter of deep regret that the difficulties of the subject have seemed to render it impossible to complete a bill for passage at this session. But it can not be perfected yet, and there fore there are no other constructive measures the necessity for which I will at this time call your attention to; but I would be negligent of a very manifest duty were I not to call the attention of the Senate to the fact that the proposed convention for safety at sea awaits its confirmation and that the limit fixed in the con vention itself for its acceptance is the last day of the present month. The conference in which this convention i originated was called by the United 'States; the representatives of the United States played a very influential part indeed in framing the provisions of the proposed convention; and those provisions are in themselves for the most part admirable. It would hardly be consistent with the part we have played in the whole matter to let it drop and go by the board as if for gotten and neglected. It was ratified In May last by the German Govern men and in August by the Parliament of Great Britain. It marks a most hopeful and decided advance in in ternational civilization. We should show our earnest good faith in a great matter by adding our own ac ceptance of it. Wants Dangers Charted "There is another matter of which I must make special mention, if I am to discharge my conscience, lest it should escabo your attention. It may seem a very small thing. It affects only a single item of appropriation. But many human lives and many I great enterprises hang upon it. It is the matter of making adequate pro vision for the survey and charting of our coasts. It is immediately pressing and exigent in connection with the immense coast line of Alaska, a coast line greater than that of the United States themselves, though it is also very important indeed with regard to i the older coasts of the continent. We I can not use our great Alaskan do main, ships will not ply thither, if 1 those coasts and their many hidden : dangers are not thoroughly surveyed and charted. The work Is incomplete at almost every point. Ships and lives have been lost in threading what were supposed to be well-known main channels. We have not provided ade quate vessels or adequate machinery for the survey and charting. We have used old vessels that were not big enough or strong enough and which were so nearly unseaworthy that our inspectors would not have allowed private owners to send them to sea. This is a matter vrhlch, as I have said, seems small, but is in reality very great. Its importance has only j to ije looked into to be appreciated. Talks of Expenditures "Before I close may I say a few words upon two topics, much dis cussed out of doors, upon which it is highly important that our judgments should be clear, definite and stead fast? One of these is economy in govern ment expenditures. The duty of econ omy is not debatable. It is manifest and imperative. In the appropria tions we pass we are spending the money of the great people whose servants we are, —not our own. We are trustees and responsible stewards In the spending. The only thing de batable and upon which we should be careful to make our thought and pur pose clear Is the kind of economy de manded of us. I assert with the greatest confidence that the people of the United States are not jealous of the amount their government costs if they are sure that they get what they need and desire for the outlay, that the money is being spent for ob jects of which they approve, and that It is being applied with good business sense and management. "Governments grew. piecemeal, both in their tasks and in the means by which those tasks are to be performed, and very few governments are or ganized, I venture to say, as wise and experienced businessmen would or gan 1 zethemiftheyhadacleansheet YOUR HAIR NEEDS ' PARISIAN SAGE It Quickly Removes Dandruff, Stops Falling Hair and Scalp Itch.

Certainly the government of the United States is not. I think that it is generally agreed that there should be a systematic re organization and reassembling of its parts so as to secure greater efficiency and effect considerable savings in ex pense. But the amount of money saved in that way would, I believe, though no doubt considerable ill it self, running, it may be, into the mil lions, be relatively small, —small, I mean, in proportion to the total neces sary outlays of the government. It would be thoroughly worth effecting, as every saving would, great or small. Our duty is not altered- by the scale of the saving. But my point Is that the people of the United States do not wish to curtail the activities of this government; they wish, rather, to en large them; and with every enlarge ment, with the mere growth, indeed, of the country Itself, there must come, of course, the Inevitable increase of expense. The sort of economy we ought to practice may be effected, and ought to bo effected, by a careful study and assessment of the tasks to be performed;, and the money spent ought to be made to yield the best possible returns In efficiency and achievement. And, like good stew ards, we should so account for every dollar of our appropriations as to make it perfectly evident what it was spent for and in what way it was spent. Nation Is Generous "It is not expenditure but extrava gance that wo should fear being criti cised for; not paying for the legiti mate enterprises and undertakings of a great government whose people command what it should do, but add ing what will benefit only a few or pouring money out for what need not have been undertaken at all or might have been postponed or better and more economically conceived and car ried out. The nation is not niggardly; it is very generous. It will chide us only if we forget for whom we pay money out and .whose money it is we pay. These are large and general standards, but they are not very dif ' flcult of application to particular cases. "The other topic I shall take leave to mention goes deeper into the prin ciples of our national life and policy. It is the subject of national defense."
