Strong Association Is
Formed to Change
the Prices.
Development of Trade in
Foreign Markets Com
pels Action.
Special Dispatch to The Call.
VANCOUVER, B. C, Dec. 30.-A new
association of lumbermen, the formation
of which was being completed in Tacoma
to-day, will, in a few days, announce
startling changes in the price ol" lumoer
for foreign shipments, as well as for local
consumption, with an important ruling on
the output and capacity of the various
TJ -r ht; . comblne , embraces all the mills in
British Columbia and Washington and is
backed by the banks as well as by the
moneyed men of Puget Sound, who have
been endeavoring to complete the asso
ciation for the last eieht months.
... . xnost radical changes brought about
will be an increase of $4 per thousand to
local consumers for most classes of lum
ber and an increase of $2 on foreign ship
ments. An allotment of the output of
each mill, calculated upon its capacity
and its average output during other years,
w JiL also ,, be n?ced by the new association.
lhe mills have been making very little
money for several years, but with the
larger demand for lumber in the develop
ment of markets in China, South America
and Australia the prospects are consid
ered good enough to insure a large busi
ness at increased prices.

Landseer Fails to Bring Home the Coin-— Flo Culver Defeats
Quadra™ Staid Oid Wyoming Reaches Wire First Once More
WHEN Andrew Carnegrie or
some of the other noted phil
anthropists have tired of dis
bursing their wealth in en
dowing libraries, colleges and
such like and find that they still tip the
scales forty or fifty millions overweight,
it might by way of divertisement furnish
them a surer coin outlet if they could be
induced to back Greyfeld every time he
starts. Bob Smith's horse looked to have j
a rosy chance to win the Encinal handicap
at Oakland yesterday, with but 109 pounds
in The saddle, and from the way the race
was run should have done so. Unfortu
nately, though, for Greyfeld, the Pueblo
stable entry, Kosormonue, upset matters.
In the handicap on Saturday the latter
mare fell heir to more than her share or I
ill racing lu<;_, but yesterday bid the Held ,
farewell at *>e start. She carried Kanscn ;
and ninety-eight pounds and under torced
draught, lasted long enough to beat Grey
feld a neck, covering the mile and hny
yards in 1:43%; Bullman ran Greyfeld
on two or three sand bars, weathered
two or three typhoons and at the head j
of the stretch was blown half a dozen
leagues out of his course, but still he
probably encountered no worse weather
than Goldone, Janice or Sir Hampton.
Bullman laid his bad luck at the door of
Waterbury, the skipper of Varro, but
Waterbury doesn't know a leg lock from
a half-Nelson. Jackson roae Goldone
through the stretch as if afflicted with
lecomotor ataxia, while Birkenruth s tiller
work on Janice, the favorite, resembled
that of a land lubber who had never
learned to box the compass. Tommy-
Burns on Sir Hampton was bumped at the
start, but did not drift out to tne Faral
lon-JS before crowding on all sail. He did
first rate until becalmed, just in sight or
the post.
An average Sunday crowd crossed the
bay and found the guessing more difficult
than usual. Tower of Candles, a favorite,
lighted everything up temporarily, but all
the other choices went out. The books
undoubtedly collected a few dollars.
In. the introductory sprint over the Fu
turity course with the weights raised
twenty pounds above the scale. Tower of
Candles a 7 to one favorite, ran away
from her field. Caesar Young's filly shoul
dered 126 pounds and with Tommy Burns
up led Alzura out four lengths. Rose of
Ililo finished third.
At the start of the mile selling
run. the barrier ; was carried away,
seriouslv impairing the chances of the
favorite Plead. The latter mare with I^ee
Jackson in the saddle bad to weave his
way from the rear, and was then beaten
a length by Canejo, a 9 to 1 chance, ridden
by Mounce. The show fell to Aloha II, a
15 to 1 shot. Alfred C quit after show
ing early speed.
Roscoe Troxler, the Texas rider, won
the rirst race at the meeting on Flo Cul
ver, in the two-year-old sprint at six
furlongs, in a pretty finish with Quadra
and Landseer. Troxler was pocketed be
hind Quadra and San Lution to the
stretch, where he got out. and at the end
downed the first named filly a neck. Land
seer, backed from 6 down to 11 to 5 favor
itism, was cut off on the back stretch, and
then finished a close third.
Owner Tom. Ryan's Constellator made
his first appearance in the seven-furlong
run. and because of good work reports
ruled an 8 to 5 favorite. The Brutus horse
ran as if a trifle short, for he passed it
up in the run home. Johnny Woods
astride Wyoming overtook Goal Runner,
the pacemaker, the last eighth of a mile,
scoring- -without effort. Sweet Tooth -was
cut eff at the start.
The veteran Pat Morrlssey, an 8 to 5
chance for the final mile run, looked all
over a winner at one time, but eventually
found the route too far.
Bullman on McNamara, an 8 to 1 shot,
then took command, coming in first, two
lengths before Alicia, another outsider.
Track Notes.
■ Birkenruth is not riding in the form he
showed before his suspension. Possibly
he is now a member of the Venus Social
Club, an organization devoted to astron
omy and shrimp salads. Many of its
members arise too early and retire too
Sweet Tooth, which started in the seven
furlong run, sported the colors of the New
York turfman, L. V. Bell.
After two weeks of excellent work with
the starting gate, Dick Dwyer gave way
yesterday to Jake Holtman, who will dis

San Rafael Disturbed by
Discovery of an
SAN RAFAEL, Dec. 30.— This city was
thoroughly aroused to-day when sticks of
giant powder were found in a room at
tached to the German Hotel in this city.
For a time it was feared mat the un
known fiend that has been burning barns
here had Invented a new method of de
struction and that hereafter he would
make use of dynamite.
Constable Louis Hughes was Immedi
ately notified of the find and proceeded
to make an Investigation. Four sticks of
giant powder were found wrapped up
with some fuse and lying on a table In
a room at the hotel. The room Is one
used by guests and adjoins the dining
room. The fuse was uncapped and there
was no particular danger in the package.
Constable Hughes said:
"I find that four men from the Point
San Pedro Quarry stopped at the hotel
last night. It is probable that one of
them had the powder "in his. pocket and
left It on the table after washing and
before eating. From the harmless condi
tion of the powder I do not think any
harm was or could have been intended."
Patrick Cassidy, who was burned while
trying to save several horses from his
burning barn last night, is resting easily.
He was terribly burned, but will recover.
The officers have so far failed to get any
clew of the barn burner.

night, while the other four teams were

Ing bunch Munro and Freeman were at
the head. The pace for nearly half the
time to-day was slow because of a slip
pery track, which made the riders keep
on the flat at the turns. For three hours
after the start the riders practically loafed
all along until the management decided
that the track was safe.

Cottage City Has a Haz
ardous Voyage Prom
Alaska. X
PORT TOWNSEND, Wash., Dec. 30.—
After a tempestuous voyage, the steam
ship Cottage City arrived this evening
from Sitka and way points, bringing fifty
passengers and $70,000 in bullion.
Captain Wallace reports that he escaped
the storm of December 25, but on the 28th
encountered a gale of unusual fury. The
sea was lashed into a foam and the wind
blew with-such violence that the Cottag6
City was compelled to seek shelter in
Carter Bay and it was with difficulty the
vessel was held at anchor.
For the second time a jury has brought
in a verdict of murder in the first degree
against Homer Bird. 'The trial com
menced December 19 and on Christmas
the jury returned a verdict. The murder
of which Bird was found guilty was one
of the most atrocious in the criminal
annals of Alaska.
Captain Gilgore, of the revenue cutter
Rush, who arrived from Sitka- on the
Cottage City, expressed grave fears for
the steamer Discovery. He says that It
may be possible that she Is safely at an
chor in some sheltered place in a crip
pled condition, but the fact that nothing
has been heard of her for forty days,
when she was at Kodlak, makes the
chance of her safety very doubtful.

Chicago Professor An
nounces Marvelous
Finds Means of Preventing
Disintegration in Cells of
Sea Creatures.
Special Dispatch to The Call.
CHICAGO, Dec. 30.— Another startling
scientific discovery in psychology, which
some investigators say, is a long' step
toward revealing the secret of immortal
life and by which science has succeeded in
checking the death process In the living
cell, was announced by Professor Jacques
Loeb of the University of Chicago to-day.
The announcement was made at the first
session of the annual conference of Amer
ican Psychologists, which is meeting at
the university, and was the cause of con
siderable stir among the many scientists
Professor Loeb's paper, the subject of
which was "Prolongation of life In un
fertilized eggs of the sea urchin by po
tassium cyanide," gave the result of ex
periments conducted by himself and his
assistants at Woods Holl, Mass., last
summer. He said:
"As the result of my experiments on
the eggs of the sea urchin and star fish
I am of the opinion that death is not due
to disintegration in the life cell. Death
is an active process, which starts with
the first appearance of life in the cell
and which, if not checked, leads to an
nihilation. My experiments show that in
an unfertilized egg two processes start
at once— one toward life and the other
toward death. My object was to find some
substance that would check the death
process and be a preservative of life- In
the cell. +
"The egg naturally dies at once unless
it becomes fertilized. Enzymlc action, or
a sort of fermentation, seems to be re
sponsible for this mortiferous process.
Hoping to counteract this enzymic action
I put some eggs into a solution of potas
sium cyanide and the result was impres
sive beyond our fondest dreams.
"Not only was the death process in the
eggs checked, but the solution acted as
a preservative of the life cell. That life
was thus sustained was proved when the
eggs were removed from the solution and
hatched. I succeeded in preserving life
in this way as long as seven days."
What the ultimate results of experi
ments upon the budding cell life of higher
animals will be scientists would not vent
ure to predict.
Professor Martin Fischer, one of Pro
fessor Loeb's assistants, declared that
ability to check the death process in cells
from which the mature animal spring9
means the solution of the problem of end
less life. Scientists are eager to see how
far up in the animal scale Professor Loeb
can control conditions of life and death.
Several other papers of importance were
read during the meeting. Professor D. J.
Lingle of the University of Chicago gave
the Yesults of his research into the effect
of common salt upon the heart beat. He
affirmed with great emphasis that,
contrary to the statement of Professor
Howells of Harvard, salt is the sole agent
responsible for the rhythmic action of the
Professor F. S. Lee of Columbia Uni
versity made some Interesting reports up
on the action of alcohol upon muscles.
By experiments upon the frog he demon
strated that a small amount of alcohol
increased the working power of muscle,
enabled it to make more rapid contrac
tions In a given space of time and delayed
fatigue; that, in short. It mide the muscle
a much better machine. In larger quan
tities, however, alcohol was detrimental
in all respects.
Spokesman Pays Tribute to the TJn
. selfish Conduct of the Hear
WASHINGTON, Dec. 30.— The Maryland
councils of the Junior Order of Mechanics
to-night presented to Admiral Schley a
magnificent medal studded with diamonds
as an evidence of .their esteem "and ad
rciration of his services to th'e country.
The presentation took place in Admiral
Schley's apartments in this city and was
made by a committee from the councils,
which came over from Baltimore on an
afternoon train.
Rev. C. F. Wyatt, acting as spokesman
of the committee, referred to Admiral
Schley's participation In the battle of San
tiago and his conduct following it, and
added that his unselfishness had en
deared him to the hearts of the American
people. Referring to the court of in
quiry. Dr.- Wyatt said that the people had
sympathized with the admiral in the or
deal through which he had passed and
had substituted the minority report for
that of the majority, because they
weighed opinions rather than counted
Admiral Schley sincerely thanked the
committee and added:
The services which this beautiful emblem is
intended to commemorate were those which
every lover of home and country will eladly
perform for his people and for their prestige
It was my good fortune to have participated
on that eventful third day of July in an en
gagement which readjusted the geographical
lines of this continent, and this testimonial
from your organization is only another recogni
tion from my fellow countrymen that these
services have met their approval. I thank
you again for this kind tribute.
Use of Sulphur Dioxide May Result

WASHINGTON, Dec. 30.— Successful ex
periments made at Angel Island, San

may result in lessening the time of the
vessels In quarantine from twelve to thir
ty-six hours. A gas known as sulphur
