Seattle, WV.sh., March 14.—Marking: the beginning of h gigantic plan for tremen dous development of all its rail lines in the Pacific northwest, at a cost estimât ed to be 20,000.000, announcement has ! been made by officials of the Great Northern Railway company that the Che lan river hydro-electric power scheme would be built at once. The plant is produce 150,000 horsepower to operate the company's lines from Spokane Seattle. The plan is also to electrify the coast lines of the Great Northern between Vancouver. B. C., and Portland, Ore., total of over 500 miles of railroad, much of which is double tracked. The work of building a dam and pow •dation, the former at the foot of T,ake Chelan and the latter on the Chela river, which plunges in a might) tor ; rent 400 feet down from the lake to the Columbia river, will t*gin this spring I The power plants will be built in the : basalt side hills In the canyon of the Co lumbia river. The location for the j plant is said to be ideal. The co in um. It ha develop! rill be at mini ight since the late James Hill sent J. T. McCheseney of Everett quietly to inspect the power scheme. McCheseney, after an investi gation, reported favorably. He was then instructed by Mr. Hill to buy the ri parian rights and other interests of those who controlled the waters of the Chelan river and enough of the shores of the lake to answer the purpose of the cheme. McCheseney's work was carried out with such diplomacy that ru. one was aware of Mr. Hill's game. The Great Northern will he equipped with the L. 'est and most powerful loco motives. The construction of pole lines and other transmission equipment nec essary for the complete electrification of the entire system west of the Idaho line has begun. The investment will pay handsomely, railroad .men assert, be cause of the lessened cost of motive power, the facility for making more stable and even train schedules over plain, valley and mountain divisions and a reduction of running time, on the whole, between Spokane. Seattle and Portland.

Duffy, whose decom posed body was found in the Leonard Rarus airline tunnel last Sunday, pre ferred living In a tunnel and subsisting on remnants of lunch begged from miners to working for a living was the chief development of Coroner Lane's inquiry into Duffy's death held last night. The jury returned a verdict that Duffy had succumbed to lack of nourishment and exposure, Colin F. McGibbon. an oiler employed at the West Colusa, testified that he had known Duffy for 14 years. He said the man was apparently in good health, but seemed to prefer the life of a hermit and beggar to one of toil. He said Duffy was eccentric in his dress and always walked along as if in deep meditation. Other witnesses told of seeing Duffy begging about the mine gates. They declared that he was not Insistent in his demands for leftovers from the lunch buckets and always appeared courteous. None knew- anything of the man's an tecedent« and it is probable thaï he will be burled at public expense. Bette loi S5î*J to e fit« Of hot fra. Jï M * mouth w&*h and throat gar* pouttira safety.

The Post's Washington Bureau. Washington, D. C., March 14.—Citi zens of Montana will be interested in learning from Secretary of War New ton D. Baker himself that they are se cure from being drafted into the regu lar army. For some time publications have been appearing, supplemented by word of mouth expressions, to the effect that under the Hay-Chamberlain law the unorganized militia, a term that ap plies to Tom, Dick and Harry, may be drafted, willy-nilly, into military serv ice. Representative Ralph W. Moss of Indiana took the matter up with Secretary of War Baker and has a re ply from the latter which quiets all doubts on the subject. "It has been repeatedly asserted." said Representative Moss, "that the Hay-Chamberlain army bill confers large powers on the president to draft citizens into the army. I recently asked the secretary of war to give me, over his signature, the actual power to draft citizens which is conferred on the president and under what condi tions this power may be exercised. His reply needs no comment to be under stood. No man can be drafted under any conditions in time of pea<'e. As congress has the sole power to declare war, no citizen can be drafted until congress shall have declared war against some foreign power. More over, no citizen can be drafted even in time of war under existing law to serve in the regular army. The law authorizes voluntary enlistments in the national guard up to a total strength of B00 men for each congres sional district. In time of actual war a reserve battalion is to be recruited for every regiment of the national guard which is called into the service of the United States, and if for any reason voluntary enlistments in the re serve battalion are not sufficient to keep up the wastage of the regiment which is in actual service, then the president may draft men from the un organized militia in sufficient numbers to keep this regiment up to full strength. The extreme limit of the president's power to order a draft un der the Hay-Chamberlain law con sists of maintaining a force on the bat tlefield equal to 800 effective men for every congressional district, and this degree of power can only be exercised after full opportunity is given to the nation for voluntary enlistments. "This law," added Representative Moss, "has been declared to threaten the liberties o^ a fYee people and td create a military system rivalling those of Germany and Russia. Can mis representation on any subject go fur ther?" The letter of Secretary of War Baker, which Is made public with Uie latter's permission. Is as follows: "My Dear Sir: Referring to your lettei* In which you Request to be fur nished with an official interpretation of section 79 of the Hay-Chamberlain army bill with reference to the power j of the president to draft citizens be Î tween the ages of 18 and 45 years into j the military service of the United j States under the terms of existing law, I have the honor to inform you as j follows: "Ry reference to the act in question you will observe that there are two sections in the bill which you mention relating to the power of draft, one being section 3 and the other section 79. The general provision is in sec tion 3. which authorizes the president to draft into the military service any and all members of the national guard and of the national guard reserve dur ing a period of war, but only 'when congress shall have authorized the use of the armed land forces of the United States for any purpose requiring the use of troops in excess of those of the regular army.' There is here no ad vance delegation of authority to the president to impose a draft. Congress must act before the power may be ex ercised. "In section 79 of the act-there is an advance delegation to the president of a limited power of draft in time of war That section provides that when j ® eml>er> of the national guard and the enlisted reserve thereof of any , state, territory or the District of Co lumbia shall have been brought into the service of the United States in time of war. there shall be immedi- j jately organized for each regiment of! j infantry or cavalry, each nine batteries ; s of field artillery and each 12 com- : I f* n,es °, f coast artillery brought into j the service, one reserve battalian. and ! . further provides: If for any reason there shall not he enouxh voluntary enlistments to! Keep the reserve battalions at the pre- I scribed strength, a sufficient number or the unorganized militia shall t-e ' drafted Into the service of the T'nited ; biates to maintain each of said bat-1 talions at the proper strength ' "No further action by congress is j recessary and the president proceeds under the authority of this section when war exists to exercise the draft- I m* power, hut it rlainly appears that 1 it is not an unlimited power, and mav ' be exercised only insofar as necessary keep the recruit battalions of the 1 national guard in position to supply I vacancies occurring by death or other cause in any organisation of the na tional guard brought into the service of the Vnited States. ' " nw ' answers to the two queries which you propound concerning this sublect are as follows; I "Question A — Under the Hav | Chamberlain b!U, in time of pea«, . can the president draft anv man to , serve either In the militia or In the negular army without the man having first volunteered and Joined a com j panv of militia? j "Answer—No. Question B—In time of actual war • fare can the president under the terms I of this law draft anv citizen of the f Friends and Customers: I find pleasure in announcing that the vert latest in materials, designs and trimmings for the $X Summer season have now arrived, and 1 herewith,! cordial invitation to you to cali and inspect same My customers know that my garments can alia, depended upon to give entire satisfaction, because 1 costumes in which the style, material and color comM are in harmony with the figure of each customer Ü tions of patrons are always considered and carried out* ever possible.

"Answer—No. The president has no authority under any circumstances to increase thç/ statutory maximum strength either of the regular arm} or of the national guard. "You will observe that neither sec tion 79 nor section 111 relates to the regular army, and while the national defense act provides for an increase In the regular army in time of war. yet this increase must be accomplished, unless future legislation should pro vide otherwise, solely by voluntary enlistments, there being no existing authority under which the president can draft men for this branch of the service. "With reference to the national guard, however, it will be seen, as al ready explained, the president, in the event that the reserve battalions au thorized by law are not kept up to the prescribed strength by voluntary en listments. has authority in time of war to draft a sufficient number of the unorganized militia *to maintain each of said battalions at the proper strength.'
