It was only about one-third as in tense as yesterday morning's tail, from which it is judged that we have •either passed through or passed by on the south side fully two-thirds of the tail. It is impossible to deter mine at this time whether we passed through the southern side of the tail during the daylight hours of yester day or the early hours of the evening, when the sky was bright with moon light, or whether we missed it alto gether. "Observations obtained on the first few evenings in the western sky may supply the data required for settling this interesting question. It Beems probable that we shall have passed through the tail completely tomor row morning, and there win be no trace of it in the eastern sky,, bat this remains an open question.*' 1 E TEN THOUSAND MEN IN PARADE WAS FEATURE OF THE DAY AT WASHINGTON Practically Every.

To the tune of "Onward Christian Soldiers," and other hymns, they marched, bearing banners inscribed with numerous Christian mottoes. At the capltol, which they were nearly an hour in passing, they were greeted by the waiving of thousands of handkerchiefs and the music of a girl's choir. Practically every country in the world and every state in the..Union was represented in the parade and the American, British, German and oth er flags of nations floated at the head of the various Christian banners.

Mohonk Lake, N. Y„ May 20.—The sixteenth annual session of Lake Mo honk conference on international ar bitration concluded its deliberations tonight. The most important hap pening was the official announce ment to the conference by Secretary Knox, through Solicitor of the State Department James Brown Scott, of the probable early establishment of an international court of arbitral jus tice. This assurance, coupled with Presi dent Taft's recent declaration in fa vor of arbitration treaties containing no reservations as to'national honor or interest, and the presence here of the Dean of Worcester, England, and the Rev.

JUR SECI1RE IN N SE SELF CONFESSED MURDERER DOE8 NOT SEEM TC REAL- IZE POSITION. Story of the Crime Retold In Court— Two Witnesses Examined Friday Guard Being Kept Over Prisoner- Feeling Against Noah Running at High Notch. Minot, N. D., May 20—(Special.)— Laughing and joking, Robert Noah, known also as David M. Noah, con fessed murderer of Chris. Johnson, a North Dakota farmer, faced the Jury which will again pass upon his fate. The jury was campleted this after noon and two witnesses were examin ed.. They were farmers who had known Johnson for many years. Noah faced them with the same bravado that he met their gazes when they asked him where Johnson was and he cooly told them that Johnson had left suddenly for Sweden. The testimony showed that Noah had shot Johnson in the back of the neck at the supper table. He called Johnson's attention to a picture of his mother's hanging on the wall and as the homesteader gazed upon it he shot him in cold blood and then opened a trap door and kicked the body through the aparture. The floor was freshly covered to escape detection and Noah spread the report that Johnson had left suddenly. Noah began to sell off the personal effects of Johnson. This aroused the suspicions of the neighbors and they began a search. One day when Noah was away, their,, search resulted in the gruesome find that resulted in Noah's arrest. Noah is a hardened criminal with a lengthy record. Two men guard him constantly in court. He is a powerful man with a brutish countenance. The trial is proving to be a perfunc tory affair, occasioned by grevious errors of Judge Goss, who, during the first trial, told, the jury that in fixing the punishment they could take into consideration the demeanor of the defendant. The supreme court held this to be a reversible error and during the second trial Noah changed his plea of guilty to that of not guilty. Feeling runs high against Noah and special care is being taken to see that he is speedily tried and returned to Bismarck. Noah was sentenced to be hung over a year ago.

(By Associated Press. Washington, May 20.—With all the testimony to be presented before it, the Ballinger-Pinchot investigation committee today took steps to bring to a speedy conclusion the congres sional inquiry which has been in pro gress for four months. Two days next week—Friday and Saturday—have been allotted the lawyers to make their closing argu ments, when the public hearings will end. The attorneys then will have fif teen days in which to submit b'riefs summing up their cases, after which the committee will begin executive sessions to weigh the mass of evi dence which has been presented. The "prosecution," as the Pinchot side of the controversy has come to be known, began the presentation of evidence on January 26 last and con cluded on March 18. Since that time the committee has been engaged in hearing the witnesses of Ballinger,. the "defense." Both sides still have the oppqr tunity to add to the already bulky record, papers and afflavits of a cer tain character. Attorney Vertrees, counsel "for Bal linger, today put in the agreements between Glavis and W, W. Barr, a land broker of Seattle, to show that Glavis had a pecuniary interest in obtaining timber lands from the gov ernment. It was the avowed pur pose of the ''defense" to show that in this matter Glavis used informa tion,he obtained while in the employ of the government. Portions of the testimony at the trial of the "Cuningham coal land cases" also were presented by Mr. Vertrees, who said it showed thnt Glavis and Special Agent Jones knew there was nothing in the charge that the Guggenheims were planning to get control of the Cunningham claims when they took the affidavits of the Cunningham claims, and that Glavis and Jones deceived the claimants. The attorney also saiu the testimony bore out the contention made in the Cunningham affidavits prepared by Ballinger, that there was no agree ment with the Guggenheims prior to the location of the claims. ELECTRIC POWER FOR FARGO FARM Fargo, N. D., May 25.—The Stern farm, located a short distance from this city, will be connected up with electricity. In fact, the entire farm machinery will be run with electric motors, making an innovation in pow er for farming for the state of North Dakota, and probably the entire north west. W. J. Price of the Fargo Plumbing & Heating Co., has begun the work of strengthening the wires from the fair grounds to the county hospital, and in a short time the hospital will be well lighted with electricity. The contract for this was let last March, but as the contractor could not se cure the poles, the work could not be done until now. It will take just 120 poles to complete the work, and sev eral of the farmers in the vicinity of the home will also have connections made with their homes and outbuild ings. The Yonkers farm will be connec ted up and so will the big Stern farm in the same locality. The Stern broth ers have long desired to run their separators with electrical engines and they have decided to make the ex periment the coming season, and if the system is successful, they will connect their other farm machinery in the same manner, and the experi ment will be watched with consider able interest as this will be the first farm in the state to use electricity in this manner. It will take a forty horse power motor to run a big thresher, and this will be the first to be installed. According td Mr. Price, it will re quire four miles of wire to reach the hospital and the various farms along the line.
