Hill Street ENGINEERS FIND NIGHT SURVEYING SUCCESSFUL PITTSBURG, Sept. 12.—Civil engi neers have added their company to an already large number of night workers here, and belive that their Idea of sur veying at night may be a really new thing. The engineering corps of the Plttsburg Flood commission, which is finding out Just what work is neces sary to keep the three rivers from in undating the lower city every spring, have lately had success In making their observations in the dead of night. The main advantage lies In the fact that there Is no street traffic to hinder, but it is also claimed that by the Die of an electric flashlight the numbers on the measured poles are more easily distinguished through the transit at night than by day^ I The Home of [ Hart Schaffner & Marx Clothes ■Hio Great Dun ob the Kile Around The World By the "OFFICE BOi"' People who are not familiar with the Reservoir of Assouan imagine it to be a certain huge tank containing a quantitiy of water when they hear it spoken of. But that, of course, is not correct and it is difficult to de scribe the immensity of th« work. In a word formidable colossal barrier. A veritable mountain of granite has been constructed across the river Nile, at the head of the First Cataract, and the water ar rested by this powerful dam spreads over the spaoe between the moun tains which rise on either side, some distanoe off, and thus forms an im mense lake, under which the plain and villages formerly there have completely disappeared. I walked across this dam and I would say it was over a mile In length. It is pierced by 180 enormous sluices, by which the surplus water is carried off roaring with thunderous noise. The quantity of water retained is over one billion cubic yards, and one of the engineers in charge told me that in evaporation alone they lost one hundred million oubio yards of water in eaoh twenty-four hours. The whole of Egypt is orylng out for water, always water, and the dam has been the means of saving the entire country from famine sev eral times. i told them some thing about our Owens River project and the distance we were going to bring the water, etc., and they only said, "You Americana know of no such thing as fall." The bringing of the Owens River water to Los Angeles will be a wonderful thing for South ern California. However, it will be no more wonderful than was the es tablishing of the Silverwood one price stores and tha bringing out of Hart Schaffner & Max olothes. EITHER BTORE F. B.

WAKKFIEL.D, R. 1., Sept. 13.-—"Prob ably Riilliy of maintaining a gambling nuisance and a Rambling place," was the finding of the district court today In tin- case of William H. Arnold, pro prietor of the fashionable Karragansett ••lull, which was raided on August 6, when several prominent New York and Philadelphia society people were pres ent. Bonds were furnished and Arnold was released. [Associated Press] ■VVAKEFIELD, R. 1., Sept. 12.— When the cases growing out of the raid on the fashionable Narragansett club by Constable John G. Criss on the night of August 6 last, resulting in the alleged discovery of evidence of gambling on a large scale, came up in the district court here today, Constable Crlss took the stand and told the story of the raid. Before the taking of tes timony was begun, however, a continu ance until September 26 was made in the cases of George L. Cutting of Worcester ( charged with having car ried a concealed weapon and with as sault with a dangerous weapon. Constable Crlss designated the lav ishly furnished club room as "a gam bling house." When he raided the place tt was occupied by about "thirty persons, half of whom were women. The constable testified that he saw three roulette wheels, a faro layout and a lot of chips. At the same time a so-called "game of hazard," de clared by the witness to be a "fashion able name for 'craps', " was going on. Mr. Crlss produced in court a lot of puker chips, score cards, roulette balls and other gambling appar atus, which, he said, he had seized In the club rooms. Constable Criss said that efforts had been made to induce him to cease the prosecution of the cases. DEMOCRATIC TICKET SWEEPS MAINE STRTE (Continued from Pace One) won over William H.

BAY CITY EDITOR FAVORS DEMOCRAT Fremont Older, Editor of the San Francisco Bulletin. Declares Against Melvin STRONGLY INDORSES LAWLOR Says Johnson Is Carrying Out Insurgent Ideas of Theo dore Roosevelt Fremont Older, editor of the San Francisco Bulletin, \vhr> is now In L.o» Angeles with Mrs. Older and Misa Frances Jolllffee, dramatic editor of the Bulletin and a siater-ln-law of Rudolph Spreckels, declares that the voters must not overlook the oppor tunity to wrest from the Southern Pa cific machine at the coming election the power which It now holds In the supreme court. Mr. Older itronffly ad vice* the election of Judge I-awlor of Ban Francisco, who has presided at most of the cases resulting from the graft inquiry. When seen at the Alexandria hotel late last night, Mr. Older said: WHAT OLDER BAYS "I have already stated my views on the campaign to an afternoon paper, but I do not object to giving them again. "When Hlr.tm Johnson agreed to run for the Republican nominatioiwor governor he declared openly that his campaign would be upon the lines of the great national insurgent move ment. In every speech he has deliv ered throughout his long canvass ho lias held steadfastly to his original de termination. He has declared that lie stood for what Theodore Roosevelt stood for, and for the principles advo cated by LaFollotte, Bristow, Cum mins, Beveridge and Dolliver. "In the opening days of the cam paign Insurgency had not won its jjroat victories, find some of the men interested In Johnson's fight were fearful lest Johnson was going too far —that he was too radical. When sug gestions along more conservative lines were intimated to Johnson, he replied that he would make that kind of a fight or none at all. He insisted that the policies of Roosevelt must be car ried out if this nation were to sur vive. "The result of the primary election lias more than justified the position he took in the earliest days of the fight. "Good citizens nil over California are rejoicing -over what they deem to be the defeat of tie Southern Pacific railroad fa-ehlne in California, that they are now to have a governor who will respond to the people and who will be able to fully restore the government that had been usurped by corrupt cor porations. MIST HE WATCHED "In those days of jubilation it Is not ■wisp for the people to overlook a branch of government which Mr. John son, even though elected governor, will not be able to control. That is the supreme court. "After all this supposedly judicial body is actually In control of our state government in the last analysis, just as the United States supreme court Is of our national government. That Is to say, the supreme court of California has the power to nullify the acts of the legislature, and frequently exercises it. Therefore it is well to remember that William F. Herrin's man, Melvin, has secured the Republican nomination for Justice of the supreme court. "The election of Melvin would only add to the power'the Southern Pa cific already has in that august body. It will be well for citizens to keep in mind this fact and remember that "William P. Lawlor, Judge of the su perior court In San Francisco, has re ceived the Democratic nomination for the same office. Judge Lawlor, during the long years of the bitter struggle In San Francisco for equality before the law, has stood firmly for the inter ests of the people. His fidelity is well known in Northern California, and it is to be hoped the people of the south will recognize It also, and add Lawlor to the supreme court, thus giving to the people at least one-seventh nf their government, which is vested in that court." BELL SUPPORTS PROPOSAL TO TAX STATE FOR FAIR Points Out Reasons Why Expo sition Is of State-Wide Importance SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 12.—Ad dressing mass meetings in two sections of the city tonight; Theodore A. Bell, Democratic candidate for governor, vigorously supported the proposal to levy a special tax of $5,000,000 upon the state for the Panama-Pacific exposi tion. In (loin;? so he explained his op position at the Democratic convention last week to pledging the party to sup port the measure by saying that It was not a political question. After point ing out reasons why the exposition was of statewide importance, the speaker said: "The proposed exposition cannot be treated as a local affair. It will be of vital concern and value to the entire state. There is no section of Cali fornia that will not receive great profit from it. Surely <<•> man will claim that the opening of the canal affects only San Francisco; surely no man will claim that the creation of markets here at home and the establishment of need ed industries is alone the concern of San Francisco. They are of more than statewide concern tor th" entire Pa cific coast is deeply Interested in them." Bell declared' that he spoke of his own personal view, not of .i parly policy; but that he proposed to argue in behalf of the amendment through out his campaign.

Ho said he represented WPStervcU & Co., and other importers who wera willing to pay liberally for under weighing of cargoes. Otto AY. B.

George Phillips, a customs clerk and at one time assistant £j\crnmen': weigher, connected George E. Bedell, chlof clerk of the deputy surveyor and; one of the defendants, with the friuds.

SAYS GRISCOM New York Committee President Declares Fight Wil Be Made on Bosses -«. •'■. '-"-'[AMAolated pr«s»]-...- \\ .'v-.'i.j'.- OYSTER BAY, N. V.. Sept. 12.— Theodore Roosevelt meant j what he said when he announced on his return from his western trip that he was going home "to fight the bosses." 'Mr. Roosevelt's name certainly will be presented to the Republican state convention," . said Lloyd C. Grlscom, president of the New York county Re publican committee, tonight after a conference of several hours with Col. Roosevelt. "Moreover," he added, "we can count on a majority of the delegates." v: In conference with Mr. Griscora and Mr. Roosevelt were Representative Herbert Parsons, Representative Wil liam M. Calder of Brooklyn, Comp troller William Prendergast of New York city, F. J. H. Kraeke, naval of ficer of the port, and Postmaster Voor his of Brooklyn. DISCUSSION OF CANDIDATE Mr. Griscom admitted the subject of candidates for governor had been dis cussed, but no one name, he said, had been considered to the exclusion of others, as before a choice could be made the preference of state leaders from every section must be learned. The names of W. H. Hotchklss, state superintendent of Insurance, and of Clark Williams, state comptroller, which have been mentioned, had not come up for consideration, he said. Although he did not say so. It Is known that Mr. Prendergast's name was among those discussed. The comptroller himself was asked if he was a candidate, and laughingly replifd that he was not. "Could anything happen between now and September 21 to change your mind?" he was asked. "I don't know," he answered guard edly. "President Taft and Col. Roosevelt," said Mr. Griscom, "are In perfect ac cord." All that Mr. Roosevelt would say was: "These gentfemen came to dis cuss the state situation. They report satisfactory .progress." He was told of the Democratic vic tory in Maine, but had nothing to say. Probably one of the bitterest Repub lic;! n fights in Manhattan tomorrow will be carried on in the Fifteenth dis trict, where Assemblyman William M. Bennett is a candidate not only for re-election as district leader, but for the congressional nomination to suc ceed J. Van Vechlen Olcott. The dis trict committee has indorsed the ticket of the Oleott faction and Chairman Griscom, replying to an inquiry today from State Committeeman Harry W. Mack, stated that because of the dis trict committee's indorsement the Ol cott ticket was to be recognized as backed by the organization. WILL STRAIGHTEN OUT NICARAGUA AFFAIRS Estrada Communicates Plans for Stable Government to United States WASHINGTON, Sept. 12.—A definite program for the establishment of a stable government in Nicaragua and the flnanciitl rejuvenation of the coun try was sot before the American gov ernment today for its approval in a long cable dispatch from Provisional President Kstrada which Senor Salva tore Castrillo, Nicaraguan representa tive in Washington, presented to As sistant Becretary of State MYintington Wilson. First of all, President Estrada wish es to re-ustabllsh friendly relations with the United States. He suggest* that the American government appoint a high commissioner to visit Nicaragtm with full powen to negotiate, if nec essary, a treaty covering all the claim* which the United States has against Nli aragua. Those include the claim for indemnity for the execution of the Americans Groce and Cannon, and the Emery claim. The Nicaraguan gov ernment desires to settle them and in order to raise the money hopes to nego tlate a loan which would be guaran teed by the setting aside of one per cent of the customs receipts. In the matter of re-establishing the government of Nicaragua on a firm basil, the president stated, a consti tutional convention would be called to reco^ni^e him as provisional presi dent and tix v date on which a national election siould be held. |.

In the election of delegates to the constitutional con vention today they won, according to returns from all the larger counties, at least twenty-eight of the fifty-two seats In j the convention. The official canvass probably will increase the number, to thirty-six and possibly moro. i If campaign platforms and pledges are carried out to the letter; the con stitution will not be- the short, plain Instrument pleaded..for by those who expressed the fear that any other sort might be frowned on in Washington.

WIN KUIX, CONTROL ' All the most populous section of the state will be represented, according to unofficial returns, by solid Democrat ic delegations, with the possible ex ception of Gila, where the vote of the new labor party was large enough to place the result in doubt. Gila coun ty's principal city is Globe, "one of the smelter and mining centers, and Its vote was divided by the Democrats and labor candidates. But In any event the Republicans were • beaten, and It is expected that any labor can didates who are elected will work with the Democrats in the convention. ■■/. ••In Phoenix, where the Republicans hoped to gain strength enough to over come Democratic pluralities In the out side districts of Maricopa county, the showing they mad© was disappointing. The Democrats elected all of Mari copa's nine delegates. Former Gover nor Klbbey was among the defeated Republican candidates. CLEAN SWEEP MADE The other counties In which the Democrats made a clean sweep on the face of the returns are, Cochise coun ty, ten delegates; Graham county, live; yuraa, three, and Pinal, two.

The defeat of the Democrats In Plma carried down Eugene S. Ives one of the party leaders In Tucson. He Polled a vote which placed him near the foot of the list in the running. One of the surprises of the campaign and the election was the strength of the labor party, which was organized only a few days before Governor Sloan issued his call for the election of dele gates to the constitutional convention The Republicans attribute their defeat in many instances to the activity of the new party leaders. Tucson polled a large Republican vote. The largest majority for a Re publican candidate was 249. and the smallest 209. The labor party cast 366 and the Socialists fifty-five votes. In other sections of the territory the Socialists made showings about on a par with this.

ARMY HEEDS MORE OFFICERS, IS CRY Transportation Department No Better Than in Civil War, Says Inspector , (Associated Pre«s) WASHINGTON, Sept. 12.—1f crit icism Is calculated to benefit the army, then Uncle Sam's soldiers should profit much in the annual re port of Inspector General Garllngton, just made public. The report mentions a whole bat talion of artillery starting for the Philippines without a single field of ficer and one of the batteries com manded by a second lieutenant of less than two years' service. The inspec tor general declares this absence of captains from their commands Is "the most fruitful source of professional disease In the line of the army today." In one department nearly a third of the line officers were absent from their commands, but under detail, and altogether the situation, according to the Inspector general, warrants the prediction of disastrous results. The obvious remedy, he says, is the pro vision for a sufficient number of su perior officers to replace those on de tail. ARM! cwMUEFARED Inspector General Bell says tho army is wholly unprepared for field service. He says the new regula tions are almost entirely theoretical or dependent upon the experience of European armies. Our transporta tion, he says, is the same as at the beginning of the civil war, for our army has so far failed to make uso of automobiles, traction engines and other modern appliances In the field. The weakness could be remedied If the present maneuvers could be replaced at least once by a march of a com plete army corps. Few of our officers have ever marched with more than a regiment. Major General Bell says: "While our Infantry is composed of the best material in the world, and probably Is as well, If not better, trained In the use of the rifle than that of any other army, its marching capacity la below mediocrity, and yet it is admitted today that the fate of the battles of the future depends, as it has in the past, upon marching ca pacity of the infantry." To remedy these conditions, Major General Wood, chief of staff, today Is sued orders which will change mate i rially the training of the army. All Inspectors general will be required to submit the troops to an annual In spection in the field, In addition to the present method, which is described in some quarters as being little less than an inquiry Into the accounts and garrison work of the troops. The new Inspection will be designed to show the efficiency of the troops In the the oretical work taught army officers at the various, schools provided In the drill ■ regulations.
