THE DESTRUCTION OF NOME Nome destroyed by mud and wave! That was the sensational news from far-away .'Alaska received by the Standard yesterday Soon after the discovery of gold at Klondike, Nome became a scene of excitement. Thousands rushed to the shores or tfenng sea ana soon there was a city of 20,onn on the barren land vhere placer mining was being carried on After the first great excitement, the population decreased until Nome, ct the time of the disaster had not more than 2000 inhabitants. The I J government at one time had to send relief to the stranded adventurers in that city and thousands were hrouebt I hack to Seattle on revenue cutters I Nome has been Ill-fated from the J time the bonanea rush was over. Now, with much of the town swept 1 awey, the place must be one of the i, dreariest spots on earth With win ter approaching, the outlook must bo gloomy indeed for the stranded peo I pie who have had their suppliee swept away. OO HOW MALCONTENTS ARE H CREATED That judges who act the part of ' tyrants are making convert to the I J cause of the anarchists In this coun I try Is brought out by the Denver Neva In its criticism of Judge Hum- I: pbries of the superior court of the , 6tate of Washington, who recently J sent men and women to Jail for con tempt of court, making his excuse the disobedience of writs issued by him enjoining the right of tree speech j on the streets of Seattle. The Den- I ver paper says: "Judge Humphries has so scanda ' lously outraged the spirit and intent I of the injunctive writ, that his broth - I er Judges of the Superior court have openly repudiated his action None the less ha he contrived to besmirch I the ermine of the judiciary of the I state of Washington, j "This is the very sort of a pro ceeding for which the I W W.'s. i crave. Senseless tyranny always be- ' gets revolt. In the case of organ izations like the I. W. W. the reac jj tion never falls to create an increas- I ! ed -membership, so that the Hum- f phrle remedy is, if anything, worse J than the disease On top of this is j the decpseated spirit of rebellion In every American against oppression land wrong. We may differ with the principles and doctrines of the L W. W., hut because we do is no justifi cation for any member of the judici ary to destroy the constitutional rights of the citizen. "Humphries Is Indefensibly wrong from every standpoint. His condem l nation by the rest of the court may fave the effect of moderating his I bvotry It i6 to be hoped It will for the honor of the bench of the stale of Washintgon. He Is Hie fit test subject we know of for the ap plication of the recall It that effec tne weapon against judicial tyranny Is in operation in the northwestern state." oo THE GREAT ATHLETIC EVENT OF THE WORLD Today the first of tb? series of games between the Giants of New York and the Athletics of Philadel phia Is heinE played ir New York be ...... J J - . IM r- an cALiien Brawn m tuns. 10 the American, these contests are the createst annual athletic events of the world, and we know of no other sporting event of sny nation that equals these baseball championship struggles Rutland has its football rivalries, but foothsll 's never as spec tacular as baseball, nor doeB It hare Its climaxes to stir the spectators to the same hih pl rh of excitement as the great American Fame. We have often wondered if a for eigner, on seeing for ihe first time the game of baseball and that a ( ham pion6hlp contest, could appreciate the wonderful skill displayed the quick nes6 of muscles, the keenness of sigh', the alertness of mind. There Is no game that calls for such a variety of athletic skill as base ball, and In these world's series that Rkill Is seen at its highest develop ment. The game must be impressive 'o even the outsid'T who does not un derstand the fine points The enthu siasm that baseball created in the Philippines when the natives first 6aw the game played by army teams and the Interest immediately aroused in Japan following exhibitions by co) lege players tend to prove that even io ioe uninniai?cj Daseoan nas its charm A general election creates scarcclv more general interest than the cham plonship games. COLLIER'S IS ON THE WRONG SIDE Collier's evidently has been meet- Irg with much complaint from the I public over its severe condemnation of Governor Sulzer of New York, for la the last issue of that weekl ap pears the following: ' Although many of our recent edi torial acerbities have seemed to us to be much more severe, the one which has exceed the most antipathy among our readers is our attempt to delineate the character or William - .

I CLARRS I Sulzer The objections or many of J our readers have taken the practical i form Indicated in Mie following let ter: "'Editor Collier's Tn your edi torial columns of last week's issue there appears an expression of your , ideas of Governor William Sulzer which are so uncomplimentary to j s.i.v nothlns of the language used Of the wide variance with the best of public opinion, that I cannot allow It to go unnoticed I wish you would cancel my subscription. I can see no reason for your attack on the governor and dislike 'he attitude ot your magazine In this respect. W. E. Co'.cgroe, M D, Rochester, N Y' To the doctor's communication Collier's makes this reply: "We think that Tammany is much worse than William Sulzer We know that Tammany is persecuting Sulzer because he denied It fre ac- I cess to the state treasury, but we al60 know and trnve known for many years, because It Ik our business to I know, that Sulzer Is a man of hope ICSSly flabby fiber, vain, n renter ai.d a poseur, quite without power of thought or any conception of po- lltical principles Knowing thin, we aj so. It Is a likable 'rait on the part of the senrral puhllc to see 111 anv public Issue merely lhat there I Is an upper dog and an under doc, and to side wholeheartodlv with thai under dog It Is the public's tend- , ency o make everything dramatic, i or even melodramatic The man it 1 sides with must have a halo, and I th? man it is against must have bonis For our part, being made as we are. we still have to go on being more discriminating than that.'' There Is honesty of opinion dis closed in the foretrolnc. and to us tht'rn l presented a new view of Suiter, but. even with hlfl shortcom ings, that justice which makes for cleaner politics and a better world undoubtedly should be on the side I of Sulzer. The governor may be weak and. no doubt, he has yielded to temptation, but the firht that Is bMnc made g not one lo punish the executive because he did wrong- I Quite to the contrary, the redho' i Iron of Infamy Is being applied to Sulzer's forehead bv Tammanv as a warning lo others that serious oppo sition to that powerful political or ganization means complete disgrace, if It Is within the power of Tam many to Inflict ruin To defeat Tamman In the making of a horrible example would be to help free New York fate from a terrible incubus, end Collier's, with its high standard of public er lee, should be doing its utmost In the present battle, fo help thne who would end Tammany's reign of terror. oo THE WORLD'S MARKET NEWS WALL STREET New York.

Hodson, who for the local forest lervlce district Is charged with work in Forest investigations, which InhA. 1 1 tleH, and habits of various forest trees, under uatural conditions, has Just returned from two months of In vestigations In the Payette, Welsei. nnd Boise forests His study con cerned principally the growth and ield of yellow pine and cutting meth ods best suited to secure numerous young trees of yellow pine the best kind of timber, without planting. The reproduction of Douglas fir was also under consideration by Mr Hodson Speaking of the Carpenter Creek nrea. tributary to the South Fork of the Payette, on which the Michigan Idaho Lumber company Is now cut ting, Mr. Hodson reports a yield on continuous covered areas on south slopes, where the trees rceehe plen ty of sunlight, of from 11.000 to 20.- 000 board feet per acre. That Is to say the beBt of these icres would furnish enough lumber for well bull C six or eight room houses He found nlso In the examination of trees up to 263 years old that the mean an nual growth of timber In the tree, was J7 board feet Of course this In crement of wood was not equally dis tributed over the 2 83 years since the growth of a tree in olume Is very much greater in the later period of its life, up to the point when It becomes mature, and old age checks the growth. Mn Hodson found one yellow pinn tree which had attained as great an age as 459 years, yet this was not quite as large as some younger trees, the diameters of which were as much as three and one half feet and which produced bIx 16-foot logs He found that in the Payette River country the lower elevation at which yellow pine was fcund was from 3500 to 3700 feet and that its maximum development occurred at from 4000 to 4500 feet. The Importance of ery exact know-; edge as to the rate of growth and re quirements for the best development and future yield is apparent when ootf considers the growing scarcity of tim ber products and ttat. eien if man aged with the best skill future crops of the yellow pui can be produced In this region not nore frequently than once in a life time, and even then not of the giant frees that are now being cut; albeit It is hoped un der more intensive application of for estry, to grow more tres to the acre in the future, as is done in Euro pean forests under artificial meth ods, and thus produce lumber of t, high grade in smaller trees, harvested at more frequent in ervals. IMV . W O'DOIELL DIES ON HUNTING TRIP l!EAR OGDEN Found frozen t death, the hod of Ravmond T O'Donnell. dav foreman oT the Exanmlner. was brought to Ogd"n late last night by Eber F Piers a com panion on a hunting trip Into the mountains near the head of South Fork canyon, east of Ogden. O'Donnell died within a few mln utes after he had become separated irom riers ana tne body was not found until yesterday afternoon For 24 hours Piers and others searched the underbrush and snow covered hill sides When the body was found. O'Donnell wns seated on the bank of! a stream with his feet In the water, his gun across his knees and Ins bead ' ' bent slighth forward. It took sev eral minutes before the sean. her8 re allzed that he was dead and not rest ing for a few moments upon the banl of the stream. The body was brought to Ogden lnt night In a wagon secured from the construction company at work on Hie South Fork dam. It was midnight before friends knew of his death. Mrs O'Donnell, formerly Miss Mat tie Cassidy Wattls, to whom Ray O'Donnell was married on April 23 had a premonition of her husband's' death Before the nuns hn.l rcohoH rvnr. nell's friends she had asked several by telephone if they had not received word from the two on the hunting eX peditlon Piers and O'Donnell left Ogden Sat urday afternoon to hunt deer in Be? ver canon The trip was made tn Tiers' automobile and camp wan made at the head of South Fork can )on at 8 o'clock Saturday eening After an early breakfast the two friends set out through the canyon running southeast from the point at which they were camped. On and on they went traversing through the gu! lies and gorges In a canvon up which they were traveling, the trail was so poor that it was necessary to walk single file and follow the stream that trickled down in order to make progress Having hunted often together. Piers and O'Donnell had a system wherebv danger and eonfunfon Were aoldd Piers walked on ahead of O Donneli but when the distance became too I great between the two. Piers would sit down to wait for his companion. When O'Donnell arrived at the point the two would rest before continuing. This plan was being followed In the canyon in which they were hunting The two met for the laBt tlnifi at 4 o'clock Piers called attention that there remained about two hours of j daylight and that the time was ample) to get out of the canyon, but. he sug j gested that the two keep closer to getber from that time on It was de cided. however, to continue on a trifle further. Twenty minutes after the meeting, as Piers had set off through another gully, he heard O'Donnell shoot Piers I sat down on a log to rest and I i await the coming of O'Donnell When his friend did not come. Piers set out down the trail to the point from which he heard the shot. On his way down he came upon a camp where I three negroes were living and upon I a suggestion Piers and the negroes fired gunB Into the air. Shots were I heard In answer but now Piers b 1 Heves It was the echo of the gnus ' In the camp. He was relieved, how ever by the sound and he remaine.i Is 'he camp of the colored people thinking that O'Donnell would flnO the place When darkness negan to fall and a snow storm occurred. Piers became uneasy With one of the campers be went down the trail wrth a lan tern peering through the snow and the rhadows When the search fail ed to reveal his companion. Pler6 re turned to his own camp believing ! that O'Donnell might have returned , alone. In the meantime the negro campers made a big fire of brush ; nnd kept it burning. Piers remained 1 alone in his camp until morning Thoroughly alarmed now, he visit -ed the negro camp again and asked all to take up the search with him i bej refused, how ever, complaining that they h,-d no waterproof coats to !-lied the moisture (hat dripped from the snow covered branches. How ever he did persuade one of the men to visit the damsite where William Doyle ,a,j ;) number of men at work The man returned with Doyle and six other men. Ihe search began In earnest af- j ter Piers had pointed out the place where he had last seen his com jnr.lon The searcher; spread out I Over wide territory and began a care- j ful hunt at 2 o'clock yesterday af ternoon. It was not until 4 o'clock that William Doyle found the body Apparently O'Donnell had become ex hausted and had sat down upon the lv.uk of the stream He was com fortably seated but his feet were in water. Across his knees was his Run. His head was bent upon his breast as if he were asleep VA hen the other searchers had been notified a crude stretcher was con structed of poles tied with handker chiefs and necktie5 Because of the difficulties of the trail, only two could carry the body on the im pressed stretcher Frequent relave were necessary It took two hours to reach the mouth of the ravin1. The body was placed In a wagon loaned by the construction company and. with J. C. White as driver Piers began the homeward Journey. At Huiltevllle he telephoned to Dr. E R. Dumk and other friendB. A part set out to meet thc wagon but in the darkness the friends missed Pier6 It was about midnight when Piers, almost exhausted from loss ot sleep and tramping, reached the city. Drs. Ezra Rich and Dumke made an examination of the body and found no signs of wounds or bruises Both physicians stated tnat death was due to freezing. Exnauired. the young man evidently sat down to reel and soon grew numb nnd helpless from cold and peri?hod The deceased Is survived by his r ife daughter of Mr. ancr Mrs E O. Waltls. his father.
