Bvansville, Ind., Feb. 15.—Special
Evidence to prove that the letters re
ceived by Bessie Devoe, the vaude
ville dancer, a former Evansville girl,
who has brought suit against Frank
Gould in New York for $100,000 for
alleged breach of promise, were not
from the man she is suing, but from
Frank Young, her former dancing
teacher. Young is an inmate of an
insane asylum here. It is claimed
that love letters written by him were
signed "Frank," as were the letters
alleged to have been written her byfessional
Frank Gould.

Managua, .Feb. 15.—The forces of
President Madriz have again taken
possession of Matagalpa, which on
Feb. 10, was occupied by Gen. Cham
orro, one of the insurgent leaders.
The bombardment of the city, which
was begun Sunday night, after not
ification had been given to the non
combatants to withdraw, was
abandoned for some hours, and be
gun again yesterday. The govern
ment forces had heavy guns on thethe
hills, but the insurgents were with
out means to reply at long range.
Chamorro therefore deemed it ad-The
visable to retreat, and under the cov
er of darkness evacuated Matagalpa
at an early hour this morning.

New York, Feb. 15.—"Newspaper
notices do not interest me now. I
no longer am a public woman. I
have retired from the stage for good.
The remainder of my life is my own,
and will be devoted to private pur
Thus did Eleanor Robson, the ac
tress whose engagement to August
Belmont has been announced, bid
farewell to the footlights and public
after a career of thirteen years as a
successful exponent of the modern
drama. In less than a month the
gifted young woman, as the wife of
the financier, will become mistress
of a magnificent town house in New
York, a country home at Hempstead,
and a costly villa at Newport.
The brief statement quoted here
with is the first and only farewell
Miss Robson has said, save for a few
words addressed to her supporting
company in "The Dawn of a Tomor
row," after the curtain had rung
down on the last act of her final per
formance at the Majestic theater in
Brooklyn Saturday night. Even to
her professional associates Miss Rob
son said only:
"I am going to leave you and the
stage. You all have been my good
friends and I wish to thank you."
Probably no representative of the
stage ever planned so carefully to
drop out of public view as did Miss
Robson, and certainly only a few pro
women have stepped from
the environment which she leaves
for the inner circles of society with
so little ado.
Her theatrical manager, Walter
Bradford, knew nothing of her plans
until reporters approached him at
the box office of the theater Saturday
night and asked if Miss Robson was
going to have anything to say in
farewell. His first confirmation of
the hinted farewell came when the
actress asked him to assemble the
company at the close of the per

axact words were:
"I'm going to be tuk care of now."
That the prospective mother-in
law of August Belmont also is going
to retire from the stage was rumored
along Broadway today.
"Miss Robson's mother, Madge
Carr Cook, of 'Mrs. Wiggs of the
Cabbage Patch' fame, has not acted I
since October," said a representative
of Liebler & Co. today, "and we have
no plans for her appearance. Per
sonally I do not think she ever will
act again."

he would have had everybody afraid
to eat anything for fear of being

good thing, but that he was not
afraid of all the coal being consum
ed or all the timber being used up,
and that much had been done in the
way of conservation from a practical
standpoint for many years, and as

Former President Roosevelt he
called "the Greatest Press Agent
that ever lived" he asserted that*
more good legislation had been pass
ed during his seven years in the
White House than during any other
similar period in the history of the
United States, except during that of
the Civil War.
"But suppose we had passed all
the laws that he commended in his
messages" he said, "the budget of
the country would be many times
what it is now." Emphasizing his
words by pounding vigorously on the
heavy leather cushion of a Morris
chair which stood in front of him,
the speaker declared that he found
great enjoyment in watching the
men who had "hobbies" but that it
would hardly do to let them lie at
the head of things. Referring again
to Roosevelt, Mr. Cannon declared,
that he had been more popular than
either Lincoln or Grant while the
latter were alive.
Oakes, N. D., Feb. 15.—A surveying
party in the employ of the Northern
Pacific railroad, is at work between
Oakes and Edgeley headed for this
place and was seen by a local busi
ness man last week. This is undoubt
edly a preliminary survey and thelabor
fact of having a party camped on th«
snow and working at this season of
the year indicates that the N. P. is
in earnest and mean to push their
plans for new mileage, and it is stat
ed on good authority that they intend
to build more miles of new road in
North Dakota in 1910 than any pre
vious year.
straight west through Emmons, Mor
ton, Hettinger and Billings counties
into Montana, joining the old line at
Forsythe. Three valuable advantag
es would be gained, a considerable
shorter route between the Twin Cities
and the icoast, a line that would di
vide the business of the new country
in the southwestern part of the state
with the Milwaukee, and better grades
for their heavy through trains both
freight and passenger. This would
then become the main line for all
through business.
It is not known if any change of
route east of Oakes is in contempla
tion or not, but it seems improbable
that thero would be any, merely the
improvement of the road to meet the
requirements of the heavier- traffic.
It is not claimed that this new
line is assured. The plans of rail
roads are not easily learned in ad-after
vance, but the scheme is certainly
plausable and looks probable in view
of the points to be gained and thetoday,
past and 'present actions of the N.
P. people. About two years ago they
did some preliminary work on a cut
off from Oakes to some point on
old line in Kidder county, probably
Dawson, but this was abandoned for
the time. This long cutoff would ac
complish much more than the shorter
one could have done and it would
not be at all unreasonable to expect
this new line to become a realization
within a year or eighteen months.

American Telephone and Telegraph
company bought George Gould's stock
in the Western Union, carrying prac
tically control, it was (pointed out that
the Mackey companies held approx
imately 82,000 shares of the former
stock. This was interprefaated by
many as a tacit merger of the three
great companies, which would mean
death to competition. Clarence H.
Mackay, head of the Mackey compan
ies, was quick to deny that any mer
ger had been consummated or was
even under consideration, but the ru
mor would not down.
Now comes the announcement of a
decision of the Mackey companies to
sell its holdings in the American
Telephone company as agreed upon
at the annual meeting of the compan
ies in (Boston today.
A statement explaining the action
was issued in 'New York tonigrt by
C. C. Adams, vice president of the
Postal Telegraph and Cable Co. Thealley
statement says:
"The Mackey companies will sell
its entire holdings of stock in the
American Telephone and Telegraph
company, that step being in deference
to public opinion, which views with
suspicion this large holding of stock

chased the control of the Western

The work that this surveying party' plies home demands but leaves con
is engaged in is a renewal or con
tinuation of an old scheme—a cut
off on the main line to the coast. The
route proposed appears to be from

New York, Feb. 15.—Evidence of
minimized competition and practical
control of the Asiatic freight moved
west from the Missouri river to Port
land and San Francisco by the Union
Pacific Southern Pacific railway sys
tem, since the merger of the two
roads in 1901, was brought out today
with the resumption of the hearing
in the suit of the federal government
to dissolve the merger.
John C. Stubbs, general traffic man
ager of the Harriman lines, occupied
the whole days session at a witness
before Sylvester C. Williams tl
special examiner who is conducting
the inquiry. Mr. Stubbs admitted on
cross examination by C. A. Sever
ance, of counsel for the government
that the Union Pacific held stock
ownership of the Oregon Short Line
which gave the former road a direct
line from Missouri river to Port
"So that all the Asiatic business
moved from the Missouri river to
Portland would be handled by the
Union Pacific alone?" asked Mr. Sev
"Yes, that is so" the witness re
On request Mr. Stubbs produced
figures showing the decrease in New
York freight over the Sunset line
from 70 per cent of the total in 1891
to 39 per cent in 1901, the year of
the merger. The government con
tends that only a small part of this
was due to legitimate competition.
Washington, Feb. 15.—(Special)—
Beer is apparently taking the place
of sake as a drink among the Japan
ese, according to figures furnished
the department of commerce and
by E. G. Babbitt, American
vice consul general at Yokohama.
In Tokyo the consumption of sake
has decreased during the past ten
years about 25 per cent. Beer, on
the other hand, says Mr. Babbitt, the
brewing of which in Japan dates back
only twenty years, can be found
throughout the empire and the out
put of the breweries not only sup
siuerable quantities for export.

Washington, Feb. 15.—Hope of find
ing any trace of the little tug Nina
and her crew of 32 men has been
practically abandoned by officials of
the navy department and unless
some tangible evidence is discovered
before tomorrow morning the search
will be given up. The report yester
day that the Nina was sighted nine
miles southeast of Hog Island, off
the shores of Virginia, a few hours
she left Norfolk, is the only
positive clue to her whereabouts re
ceived in Washington. The search
therefore, practically has been
confined to the scene where the little
craft was last reported. The battle
ship Louisiana and the scout cruis-
Salem are now cruising these
waters. Fifty eight hundred square
miles have been surveyed by the
Louisiana. All of the other vessels
engaged in the search along the coast
have been recalled.
Grand Forks, N. D., Feb. 15.—'If it
had not been for an unusually great
stroke of luck, Mrs. Evanson, of Mich
igan City, iN. O., would be a loser of
$1,642. As it is she still has possess
ion of every cent of the money. She,
in "company with another woman, was
walking down Minnesota avenue last
evening. They noticed a well dressed
young man coming towards them
When the man was near Mrs. Evan
son's side he snatched her purse from
h'-r hand and started to run across
the street, going in an alley on the
opposite side. In snatching the
•purse from the woman's hands, the
handle was broken off and the purse
came open. In his haste to get away
the man did not notice that all the
contents of the purse were pulled out.
There was $42 in money and a draft
for $1,600 in the purse. 'Lanterns
were secured immediately, and a
search for the money was begun. In a
short while the entire amount was
found. The purse was found in the
into which the young man had
run. He evidently stopped to ascer
tain how large a "haul" he had made
and, on finding the purse empty, he
threw it away. Mrs. Evanson is un
doubtedly thanking her lucky stars
for the lucky escape from losing a
large sum of money.
•Cincinnati, O., Feb. 15.—Special.—
That Catcher Kling, of the Chicago
Nationals, will be reinstated and that
the short schedule of games will be
adopted at the annual spring meeting
of the league in New York, was the
^prediction of President Garry Herr
mann of the Cincinnati club, before
he left for the east last night. Herr
mann said he did not see why the
former Cub catcher should not be
declared eligible, and as for the sched
ule, he did not believe there would be
more than one or two in favor of the
long series.
"We will play 154 games next year
and will, on Tuesday, issue the state
ment in New York to this effect. At
last there seems to be peace in the
league, and it will remain peacable,
so far as I am personally concerned,
for the rest of the year," he said.
"There is no reason that I can think
of now why Catcher Kling cannot bg
reinstated. Of course, this matter
will have to be settled when the na
tional commission meets."
'On top of Herrmann's statement,
came the report that Kling has sent
to the national commission a state
ment to the effect that if they do not
allow bim to play ball for four years,
he will bring action in the civil courts
for $40,000 against the members of
the commission.

Paris, Feb. 15.—M. Liard, vice rec
tor of the University of Paris, has
been officially advised that Theodore
Roosevelt will reach Paris about
April 14, and that the length of his
stay will probably not exceed three
or four days. The French govern
ment is anxious to receive the form
er president of the United States with
the highest honors.
French society is prepared to lion
ize him: the literary, philosophical,
geographical and scientific bodies all
desire to entertain bim, and the
American colony would like to give a
grand banquet in his honor. But Mr.
Roosevelt has discreetly allowed it
to be understood that he particularly
desires to avoid any appearance of
ostentation and that he will preserve
as far as possible merely the role of
a man of learning. In which capacity
he accepted the invitation to lecture
at the Sorbonne extended to him
through Ambassador Jusserand while
he still occupier1 the White House.
Mr. Roosevelt's visit to Paris there
fore will be devoid of the spectacu
lar features which characterized ex
President Grant's visit here at the
time of his tour around the world.
Mr. Grant, while not the official
guest of the nation was received al
most like a reigning sovereign. Mr.
Roosevelt's wishes will be carried
out in the main but the government
has declined to forego the honor of
entertaining him, and the ex-presi
dent has accepted the invitation of
President Fallieres to be nls guest
at a dinner at the Elysee palace.
Mott, Feb. 15.—Sheriff Barry of
Mott and District Game Warden Wil
kinson of Fargo, caused the arrest of
Geo. Langworthy, living south of
Mott, on charge of trapping and il
legally killing beaver on the Cedar
river. It was learned that the ac
cused had 16 or 18 hides in his pos-
session worth about $10 and a com
plaint was made against him.
The case was set Defore Judge Lee
Monday afternoon and continued
over until Tuesday, when the case
was dismissed. Langworthy retain
ed H. P. Jacobsen as his counsel and
States Attorney Stone prosecuted.
There was absolutely no positive evi
dence that the animals were killed
within the statutory limitation or
even killed by the defendant and the
case was set aside.
