NEED OF MORE MUSIC
President Harris Declares It Should
Play More Important Part
in Edfoation
Chlcao Dec 28Thf American
people Are musical barbarians and the
function of the American musician is
to civilise the people
This declaration by President A W
Harris of Northwestern university was
the keynote of the thirtj first annual I
convention of the Music Teacher Na
tional association which mt hr > to
day
It Is regrettable that niuu plays
such a little part in the education of
the people said President Harris
and it is a shame that c itege grad
uates know so little uf the subllmer
works of music
A young man who gnes into thc
world without having some Idea and
appreciation of music is poorly
equipped for his life work for he is
forever barred from the uplifting qual
ities to be derived from great musical
compositions
Education is too cold and it would
be materially improved by the addi I
tion of musical studies to college

SOUTHERN PACIFIC lOSES iI I i I
Interstate Commerce Commission i
Benders Important Decision Af
fecting Mazy Interest
Washington Dec 28 When a railroad
rate is unreasonable In a specific case
In a given territory it Is also unreasona
ble from all points In the territory that
took the same rate on traffic transported
under similar circumstances and condi
tions
This principle was announced by the
interstate commerce commission in a de
cision handed down today In the case
of the Standard Hardwo Lumber com
pany against the Southern Pacific Rail
road company The decision affects a
large number of cases involving the
transportation of hardwood from points
between the Mississippi river to Pacific
terminals
A rate of S cents per hundred pounds
being unreasonable from Mississippi river
points to Pacific terminals the commis
sion held this to be prima facie evidence
that the rate was unreasonable from all
points in the same territory which took
the same rate on traffic transported un
der similar circumstances and that a
75cent rate should be applied to all of
these points

duced almost to spectres by slow star

be dying the schooner Minnie A Caine
was towed into Grays Harbor yesterday
only a few pounds of mouldy hardtack
standing between the men and death
The schooner sailed from Hypong
China September 20 and was still off
the China coast when a typhoon almost
wrecked the vessel and carried away
most of the food supplies For almost
100 hungry days captain and crew were
on short rations that had adverse winds
been encountered off this coast all admit
they must have perished Captain Olsen
was too near death from heart disease
superinduced by lack of food physicians
say to permit him to be removed to a
hospital
FAILS IN HER PURPOSE I
Young Woman Unsuccessfully At

Oakland Cal Dec Ignorance of
the effects of chemicals led Miss Helen
Rosencrants to administer a double dose
of oxygen to herself in an unsuccessful
effort to end her life She emerged from
the ordeal much benefited in health physi
cally physicians say Despondency drove
bar to swallow several grains of perman
ganate of potash Fearing that this drug
despite its lurid purple color might not
have the desired effect she drank the
contents of a bottle of hydrogen peroxide
This Interacting with the permangan
ate produced large volumes of oxygea
causing her great pain but putting her
In no danger of death When the re
action finally ceased Miss liosencranta
left the hospital where neighbors sent
her minus her melancholia and accord

Total Loss but Crew Makes
Shore Safely
OSTON Deo28The discovery today of the wreck of tk five
BOSTON schooner Davis Palmer which sank with twelve an Sun
day morning at the entrance to Broad sound was followed by the
report of another wreck in the outer harbor
This second victim of the great storm that swept Hew England Sat
urday night and Sunday was reported by Captain Kemp of the tug
Ariel who asserts that he saw three masts of a schooner projecting
above the water near the shoals known as The Graves
Although Captain Kemp locates the vs
SHl three miles east of the wrek of the
Palmer some marine authorities think
that he may have ban mistaken jii i i his
bearings and that he saw the Palmer
masts Stafarlng men who behet the
tugboat captain is nut mistaken about hs
bearings suggest the possibility of a col

known schooner

Richard Knowlden Placed on Trial
for Stealing Wireless
Plans and Sketches
London Dec 2IThe wholesale theft
of Tireless plans medals and sketches
which in the hands of an expert would
reveal aU the workings and innermost
secrets of the wireless service of the
British navy is charged against Richard
Knowlden who was placed on trial at
Portsmouth today
Knowlden is a draughtsman attached to
the torpedo school ship Vernon In his
room were found no less than eighty
plans for wireless improvements and cod
ing books of the moat confidential char
acter which are issued to officers only
The authorities attach the greatest Im
portance to the arrest as they contend
that if the documents abstracted from
the Vernon had reached foreign govern
ments all the labor of recent years given
to the perfecting of a wireless system
for the British navy would have been
rendered practically fruitless
