Scene of Crime and Have
Strong Clew
{Special Dispatch to The Call]
SAXTA CLARA, March 16. — Con
stable Lyle is convinced tonight that
the murderer of Watchman George
Whybak will be captured before the
md of the week. He is certain that
the fugitive is close nt hand — in facs,
•within the confines of Santa Clara
county. Several suspects have been
picked up in various parts of the
vounty, but they are not thought to
ljave any connection with the Fhooting.
Micky Doyle, alias Kid Johnson,
i&ken from a train at Gilroy. was
brought to Sah Jose today and placed
in detenue pending an investigation of
his stories.

that he did not think "lied" was in

what he knows. \u25a0
The most important clew up to the
prrsent is the one given by the farmer

Coyote creek, north of here. Early
Monday morning a man was seen
tramping along- the road past the farm
f-r's hoxjpe, and when questioned said
that h^ had come from Sa:i Diego two
riays= before. His description is said
to tally exactly with the one given by
Ferry, the companion of Whybark on
that fatal night. Though not ad
mitted. It is almost certain that this
man is tlie one the officers are seeking
most strenuously and hope to land be

Shot by Two Assassins
[Special Dispatch to The Call]
SAN' JOSE, March 16.— Officers of this
county are now working upon the
theory that Night Watchman George
Wliybark of Santa Clara was shot In a
pistol duel- with two opponents, instead
lo one, as was at first supposed.
At the autopsy it was discovered
from the angle of the wounds In the
body and bullet marks In the walls
where he Cell that he was probably
rsught between two fires. Two wxfunds
v.err- inflicted In his side and one from
straight In front of him. The suppo
sition Is that the wounds In the side
were made by the bullets of a marks
man concealed in a small apartment
close to Whybark, whom he did not
not notice when he called to the man
of one, as was at first supposed.
Manufacturer Believe Struc-
tures Will Become Common
Thomas A.. Edison says the time is
<oming when everybody who' wishes
can have a concrete house of any
Miape or size desired and at very mod
orate cost, and that this will help to
polve the problem of living inexpen
sively in comfort and amid healthful
purroundings, says the Xew Haven
Palladium. And here comes a Pitts
burg man who predicts that in 10
yearfTttie glass house will have been so
perfected that all these desirable ends
may b<? attained at still less outlay.
This pentleman declares it will soon be
possible to furnish th« finest habita
tion, fireproof, waterproof, windproof,
germ proof, disease proof and perhaps
burjrlar proof.
The. houses are to be built on con
crete foundations and have glass walls,
roof, ctllingE, wainscoting and all the
rest -of It, wired and made opaque ex
cept where there is need of windows.
If the owner wishes the house may be
so constructed as to admit light with
out windows. There will be tiled
floors of glass, and the finish and deco
ration may be In any color* or de
signs required.
The statement is made that in addi
tion to the low original cost these
houses will be of exceptional econ
omy, becauee they will be free from
the wearing effects of time and there
fore exempt from outlays for repairs,
and the life of a building will be prac-
Uc&ny unlimited. Furthermore, "there
will b<> no gathering of unpleasant or
unwholesome elements, because it will
he entirely sanitary in spite of what
tlje «>eeiipants may do, or at* least fit
to be redeemed from the terrors of any
.kind of occupation."
"Of course due must be
made for this glowing prediction, the
prophet bring a glass manufacturer.
And there is to be remembered what
may possibly happen to the dwellers in
prlass houses in a neighborhood given
to throwing stones.
Paintings Taken From Building
to Adorn Museum
A puzzle that the architect of the new
Carnavalot' museum Is Jlevoting himself
to is for the decoration of the grand
staircase of the future annex. The
paintings on stone were taken from the
demolition of the ancient Hotel de
Luynes. say* the London Globe.
Instead of being taken to pieces
stone by ston© find separated with care,
the historic panels were sawn through
without discretion. Still worse. '"\u25a0' the
Ftones were taken down from the wail
without marking them and thrown lo
pether in heaps In the under buildings
of the Galliera museum. The architect
has enjoyej all the emotions of the
\u25a0 "puzzle." since he has had to recon
struct provisionally on the ground the
whole of the painting.
The game of patience is finished for
the central panel. Between the inter
stices of the fragments carefully placed
together plaster mixed with oil and
soap has been run in. It remains to
trace on the whole a check work In
water colors for the guidance In plac
ing in vertical position of the stones.
Finally the modeler will put An the
missing pieces, and the artist, M. Chois
nard, will make the Indispensable addi
tions and complete the picture. .

Timbering Unheard Of in Great
Consul Lester Maynard of Vladivo
stok writee that there are no exact
data regarding the total area of- forest
land in the maritime province of Si
beria and the neighborhood of the
Amur province. According to the
forestry department's estimates there
are about 490,000,000 acres of forest
land belonging to the department of the
domain and about 19,000,000 acres be
longing to the Cossack administration,
lie continues:
In the southern part of the province
the species are very much mixed, de
ciduous and coniferous trees growing
one next to the other; In the northern
part most of the forces consist of co
niferous species. The forests, being gov
ernment property, are managed by a
local office of the department of the do
main, with a head office in Habarovsk.
The government's income Is collected
in the form of a tax per cubic contents
of logs sold. The tax varies from a
half to 7 cents per cubic foot, accord
ing to the importance of the forest,
si2e, kind and form of , wrfod, the dis
tance frora the market and the means
of transportation.
The whole of the Amur district has
practically only Nikolaevsk as a har
bor, the bar of which is passable for
steamers of not more than 16 foot
draft, and which has a short naviga
tion season. The Ussuri district ships
timber by rail to Vladivostok. The
•awmill on the river Bikln supplies the
Habarovsk military demand. The Sun-
Brarl district ships timber and firewood,
also by rail, to Harbin and Vladivostok.
Timbering on the Amur Is In its in
fancy, in most places the forest is
either directly on the river banks or
one to three miles from . the main
stream and Its tributaries. Timber is
cut where it can be supplied as fire
wood for the steamers or for the local
demand. There are several sawmills
between Habarovsk and Lake Kisi, all
operated on a small scale. Nik&laevsk
has very little timber and the local de
mand U supplied by rafting it from
Lake Ktsi, about 150 miles up the river.
Crude Chinese methods of rafting are
employed. As there are comparatively
few steamers on the Amur there would
be no difficulty in rafting on a large
scale, the river having high water two
thirds of the season. Probably 3.000,000
to 5,0*0,000 logs could be rafted down
to Mkolaevek from the Amur district
every year.
De Katsri, Emperors harbor, Turney
bay, St. Olga and Amur and Ussuri bays
could be used for sbipping timber on
a larg« scale-, especially the first two.
Turner bay is open to southwest winds
which prevail from May to August.
Loading at any time Is Impracticable
without a steam launch and is difficult
even in summer. St. Olga has an inner
and outer harbor. The former can be
used by small steamers of about 16 foot
draft and the latter, although good in
calm weather, is exposed to storms.
The forests around De Katsri bay
could supply about 2,000,000 to 3,000,000
trees, and if connections were made
with Lake Kisi and its river system
the number of trees could be increased
to 15,000.000. Emperors harbor with
Vanlna and Data bays could supply
from 500.000 to 1,000,000 trees per an
num, and it might be possible "to keep
these harbors open the whole year
round. \u25a0 /
Pine does not grow in the maritime
province and vicinity, being found only
in the upper Amur and in the valleys
of its northern tributaries, the rivers
Zea and Burea. In these localities
pine grows In large forests, the trees
often reaching the size of rough spars,
over 100 feet high and more than four
feet In diameter. The trunk is straight
and clean of twigs almost to the top.
The wood Is of high quality, light yel
lowish or rose colored, fine grained and
takes a high pollfh.
The superiority of cedar, in com
parison with the other coniferous spe
cies, such as larch, fir and spruce, has
been demonstrated by the fact that IX
finds a ready market in China and Aus
tralia, whereas the other species hay«
not been well Introduced into these
markets, and command a lower price.
The home of the cedar is the southern
part of the maritime province, the most
thickly populated part of tho country,
and in consequence is the tree mostly
used by the lumbermen of the province,
and to such an extent that this species
Is cut away in all localities easily ac
cessible for lumbering on a large scale.
The present cedar forests are 15 to 25
miles from the rivers, which, on account
of the absence of logging railways,
makes logging with horses necessary,
and as the country is becoming more
thickly populated the tendency of the
forestry department Is to "save these
forests for future use.
Large cedar forests are to be found
inland and in the neighborhood of Man
churia. ._
Waste Fruit Used for Distilla-
tion of Spirits
About 20 per cent of the bananas
grown in banana producing countries
are unfit for export and are often com
pletely wasted. Various attempts have
been made to utilize this waste ma
terial, such as drying the frultand
making banana flour. Greater success,
however, has been gained by taking
the waste fruit to breweries and con
verting it into spirit resembling whisky
in flavor. *".-i":' .
A similar problem has been solved In
the same way in South-Australia, where
the production of raisins has far ex
ceeded the local consumption and there
is no prospect of a successful export
trade. About 150 gallons of proof spirit
can be obtained from a ton of raisins,
with profit to the grower.
Whisky can be made from potatoes
and even from sawdust, and perhaps,
says the University Correspondent, ono
day the peat deposits of our heaths and
moors will be exploited for the same
purpose. •

Secretary of Interior Declares
Himself an Earnest Advo
cate of Conservation
Tells Minnesota Farmers That
Coal Deposits Will Last
for 7,000 Years
ST. PAUL, March 16.— Asserting that
he is "as earnest an advocate of wise
conservation as the most radical, s but it
must be wise conservation to appeal, to
me," Secretary of the Interior Balllnger
spoke today before the Minnesota con
servation and agricultural development
congress. • •
Ballinger was greeted With applause
by the farmer delegates when he stated
that it was the objector the adminis
tration to put homes into the hands of
as many citizens as possible.
At tomorrow morning's session James
J. Hill will speak. on "Conservation of
Capital." \
Delegates were -'present today from
all parts of Minnesota and from a num
ber of neighboring states.
Governor Eberhardt welcomed the
delegates and introduced' Archbishop
Ireland, who presided at I tb"e fir9t ses
sion. \u0084 ;
The congress will continue four days
and several noted speakers are on • the
program. Including government experts.
Ballinger;.. declared: himself dut -of
sympathy~with those radicals. who- fear
that all natural resources are being
used up without any consideration for
future generations. *-•
'Our country," he said, "is the richest
of all in natural resources. Its soil,
its minerals.Mts coal, its iron, its gran:
ite, its limestone, its \yater power and
its climate possess \ immeasurable
wealth and, If properly utilized, contain
sufficient resource to care for all prob
able increase in the population of our
country in the years to come." He
said: v
While th 6 doctrinaires figure that
the^coal deposits of the United
States and Alaska wtllb* exhaust
ed in a period of about 100 years,
the fact is. that, according to the
production of coal in the United
btates at the close of 1908, only 0.4
per cent of the original supply of
coal had been exhausted, leaving
as the apparent supply still avail
able 99.6 per cent of the original
supply, or coal enough to last, as
some claim, for a period Of 7,000- r
After long indifference on the
part of the people as to the pub-
Jic domain, a deep concern has sud
denly arisen respecting the rem- '
nant of the national estates, with a
wholly exaggerated notion of what
should be done with it by the gov
There is /much talk about the
conservation of our national re
sources, and nebulous theories that
sound good to the ear, but are im
possible of practical application"to
existing conditions, are advanced. :
Between the hysteria that exists
on the one side and the tendency
to despoil the public domain on the
other, we will, it is hoped, .be able
to find the true policy of the gov
Ballinger expressed, the opinion tftat
"a greater obligation rests updn the
states than upon ' the gonoral govern
ment to inaugurate- laws' to -prevent
waste In the utilization of national
resources," and added: .
But we must not fortet that we
are not through with tlie policy of
development, of building up new -
communities and settlements, even
in far off Alaska. have not
reached that period where- we can
saj' the remainder of our public
lands shall be auctioned off to the'
• highest bidder to increase the reve
nue of the national treasury. They
must still be used tas inducements
to increase thrifty settlements and
provide new homes to landless set
tlers and to promote commerce and
industrial pursuits in the most re
mote regions of the west.
What the public domain needs to
day .is a speedy survey of' all •
available areas for settlement: and
adequate and scientific classifica
tion of the remainder of the public
lands and such legislation as will
enable a determination ! of all pri-.
vate entries and rights in the in
terest of the bona fide claimant'
. without unreasonable delay, and, ,'
\u25a0 above all. protection against the.
monopolization or waste of our •
natural resources. . \u25a0 «.
Ballinger declared that the- present
laws and methods of disposal of de
posits of coal, phosphates, oil and nat
ural gas. were utterly impractical, and
he added:. . l l^^^^
Inadequate method exists for
controlling or supervising hydro
electric power produced from power
] plants installed on . government
water power sites. No man or set
- of men can comply, with the pres
ent hi tv and finance a coal mine on
the public domain on 640 acres of
land except under • extremely fa
vorable conditions. • . . \u25a0
The absurdity of the law in itself
Invites fraud and indirect methods
of evading its provisions. It Ib
hoped congress will- furnish, the
interior department.with the neces
sary machinery to guard safely
\u25a0 and properly the < public interests
In their ultimate dißposltion.
"The insurgent movement is some
thing like a fantasy, and the Ballinger-
Pinchot T hearing is of less importance
in the east than the west," said .Bal
linger this, morning. :-
"When you are riding on the plains,
a cow on -the horizon ; looks 4,0 feet
high, but when you come up to it, It's
Ohly an ordinary cow." • ,
Regarding the . Investigation :of the
Glavls charges, Ballinger. said:. ..v ;
"So far nothing has beeir brought to
light but suspicions, innuendo and inti-;
mations. These I will dispel as soon aa
my evidence is in." - . , \u25a0 -

Colonel Announces Candidacy to
Succeed Himself on Slate
Railroad Commission
Alden Anderson Plans His Fight
and Johnson Will Tour the
State in Autos
-Colonel Harvey D. Loveland an
nounced -yesterday that he would be a
candidate for the republican nomina
tion to succeed himself as a member of
the railroad commission.. "
Loveland was appointed to the rail
rotvd' commission In .1907,' vice Andy
Wilson, the boodle supervisor, who was
forced to resign. He Injected new life
into the moribund commission, and suc
ceeded, in a measure, in making it re
spectable. /VThen the commission was
investigated by the legislature in 1909
Lbveland came- out 'with flying colors.
The legislature especially commended
him and the. democratic proponents of
the Inquisition were forced to give him
a clean bill of health.
."I am going to be a candidate on my
record," said Loveland yesterday, "and
nothing will give me greater pleasure
than to have that record the test of my
fitness. To those who. may wish to in
vestigate my record, I will lend every
assistance and extend every facility.
When the senate. haled the commission
before it last year I rested on my rec
ord and a vote of confidence was tho
"Since I have been on the commis
sion it has been art active/hard work
ing, aggressive board. Several impor
tant cases have been tried and adjudi
cated and we now have a great num
ber of important cases on the docket.
"I am not the candidate of any or
ganization.- I am going before the peo
ple at the primary election'squarely on
my record, and it will not be difficult
for any to satisfy himself as to that
record if he Cares to Investigate."
~ Loveland has been associated with
the wholesale interests of San Fran
cisco for 23 years, and during that time
actively interested in tho protection of
those Interests in traffic matters. He
was presiding over the trans-Missis
elppi commercial congress at Muskogee,
Okla., when he was notified that Gover
nor Glllett had named him to succeed
Wilson. He was president of the Pa
cific Coast jobbers' and manufacturers'
association for six years. In the work
of that organization he was associated
with r William R. Wheeler, Seth Mann
and others as representative of the
coast shipping 'interests beforo the in
terstate commerce commission.
Alden Anderson is hastening the pre
liminary arrangements for the opening
of a systematic campaign. Ho has
chosen C. A. Famsworth, a well known
local newspaperman, for publicity dlr
rector and will open permanent head
quarters at Kearny and Post streets
Monday. The businessmen's club, which
is promoted by C. C. Moore, it is an
nounced, will be launched next week. It
is understood that Moore has consented
to accept the executive, post and direct
the club's work for Anderson. >\u25a0;•
. Anderson announced .yesterday that
former Senator G. Kuss Lukens of Ala
meda county would be one of the asso
ciate managers of. his campaign in the
state. Lukens was once upon a time a
wheelhorse in the Pardee organization
across the bay, and it was Lukens and
his friends who made Anderson a can
didate for the presidency of the state
league of republican clubs in 1900.
Anderson likes the stories about his
withdrawal at the \u25a0 psychological mo
ment no more than Curry, who is the
hero of those tales on the days that are
not working for Anderson. The super
intendent of banks entered a direct ref
utation of these stories yesterday.
Will fight to the last
"I am in this fight to stay until the
last Run is fired," he said. "I did not
hasten into this campaign. The urging
of my candidacy came from serious and
responsible persons. I was never more
confident of a satisfactory conclusion
to any of the efforts of my life than I
am of the success of this campaign.
However, I am not in this race as a job
hunter. I expect to be nominated. If
I am not nominated I shall be for the
fellow, that is. There is nothing in my
personal or official record of which I
am ashamed. I shall do nothing in this
campaign for which I need blush.". .
Max J. Kuhl, state organizer for th«
Lincoln-Roosevelt league, started last
night on a trip through the Sacramento
valley which is to consume 10 days..His
organization tour will, begin*' at Yreka
and end at Sacramento. The Lincoln-
Roosevelt leaguers are delighted with
the confidential reports from the field,
.and especially so with those from south
ern California, where Hiram W." John
son and A. J. Wallace, their candidate
for lieutenant governor, are making a
whirlwind campaign. -
Immediately after the conclusion of
the 10 days' trip through the south
Johnson and Wallace will begin an auto
mobile tour of the .state. They will

Col. H. D. Loveland,
Who Asks Voters
For Another Term
from the tour of their candidates In
chief. Wallace, like Johnson, is an ora
tor. He" is about 50 years old, a vigor
ous and experienced campaigner. He
has figured prominently and creditably
in the politics of Los Angeles. "In 1906
he was the only independent candidate
for the city council indorsed by the re
publican city, convention.
The independent republicans* row in
the thirty-ninth district has taken a
tvHst which insures' more than passing
interest for the annual meeting of the
club, which will be held tomorrow
night. E. T. McMurray's quest for the
club's indorsement for the senate has
entered the petition stage and charges
of broken faith are flying thick and
fast. '
About 20 of the lights of the big club
held an executive meeting a week ago
last Friday night. McMurray was
there. According to the leaks from
the executive council McMurray broke
the candidate ice by declaring that if
Assemblyman E. J. Callan would be a
candidate for the senate it would be
the duty of every member of the club
to support him to the last ditch.
Callan was pleased to hear the kind
ly things said about him and for him
by the former dictator of the club's
affairs. The assemblyman told his
club fellows that his services were at
their command; he would be a candi
date for the senate if the club desired
it. So the matter was passed up to the
club for Its decision at the annual
meeting to be held tomorrow night.
Meanwhile .McMurray has circulated
a petition by which the signers are
made to say that E. T. McMusray is
the one best bet in the senatorial
handicap and that the independent
club will be doing Itself and an ex
pectant public a grave injury If it
does not insist upon McMurray becom
ing a candidate.
Just to make it good McMurray is
out to oust Olin Berry from the presi
dency, of the club and seat in his stead
Joe Cutten, lately a of the
board of health. McMurray is prose
cuting a telephone campaign for him*
self based ori . two main arguments.
To : one j breed of republicans he gives
solemn assurance that he has the sup
port of the machine and for the con
sumption of the long hairs he has a
list of reform -republicans in the for
tieth district, -who he alleges are
pleading with him to. get in and save a
flabbergasted people.
Gates Declines Offer

LOS ANGELES, March 16.— Lee C.
Gates, who was tendered the support of
the Llncoln-RoOseVelt league if he
would become a candidate for United
States senator, "announced tonight that

Every Woman's Hair
Should Be Beautiful
(From StyU and Fashion.. New TorkV
"Beautiful, glossy andjustrous hair
is within the reach of every woman
wbo will only try/ said Mmc. Le
Claire, the French beauty, specialist,
"By trying I mean she must use in-
telligence as well as be willing .to put
forth the physical effort required. H
your hair is dull, brittle, dry and
streaked, it means that you arc not
taking intelligent care of it. _ '
"Stop your scrubbing, rubbing and
rinsing. Soap and water shampoos
only sive you a headache, keep you
indoors the better part of a day and
expose you to catching cold.
"Every woman who wants abun-
dant, lustrous hair should use a dry
shampoo. Mix four ounces of pow-
dered orris root with four ounces ot
therox. Sprinkle about a tablespopn-
ful.of this mixture upon the. head;
then brush the powder thoroughly
through the hair.
"This cleanses the scalp and hair
and gives the hair a beautiful glossy
luster— in addition to making it light
and fluffy. Therox encourages the
growth of hair."
