ACTRESS DAUGHTER OF LA FOLETTE TO WED WILL BECOME TILE WIFE OF ONE OF WISCONSIN SENATOR'S POLITICAL LIEU TENANTS MADISON, W T is., Feb. 4.—Senator and Mrs. Robert M. La Folette will soon announce the engagement of their daughter, Miss Fola, the ac tress, to Alfred T. Rogers, one of La Folette's political lieutenants and his prospective law partner. Mr. Rogers is a Janesville man. As a politician he is a great organizer, and for a long time has been La Fo lette's confidential adviser. The mar riage will bring to a sudden close the professional career of the senator's oldest daughter. Miss La Folette is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin. Before ahe finished here course there she de cided to go oh the stage, as.her fath er had many years ago. Circum stances which prevented him from becoming a thespian instead of a pol itician did not stand in her way. Comprised Largely of Students Her first professional engagement was with a company comprised large ly of college students, touring the Northwest in 1904. The next sea son saw her in the East. Eventually she appeared with companies on Broadway and in the larger cities of England. Unlike most ambitious actresses, she did not have to overcome parent al objections to engage in her chosen career. Senator, then Governor, La Folette, considers the stage as legiti mate a business as any other. Some •f his best work has been directed ■ages in Shakespearean and other Jdais. Mrs. La Follette, while never con aidering the stage as a place for her own talents, was a prize orator and amateur actor at the University of Wisconsin and was in sympathy with the spirit prompting her daughter. It is related that on one occasion Mrs. La Follette defeated her future husband in an oratorical contest at the university. Railroads Ip Before Commission.

WILEY SUCCESSOR TO JAMES WILSON PRESIDENT WILL APPOINT HIM SECRETARY OF AGRICUL TURE TO SUCCEED MAN FROM IOWA WASHINGTON, Feb. 4.—Presi dent Roosevelt is asserted to have decided to appoint the eminent chem ist and chief of the bureau of chem istry of the agricultural department, Dr. Harvey W. Wiley, as a successor to Secretary of Agriculture James Wilson, of lowa, when the latter re tires from the department, in April next, as it is his reported intention of doing. Dr. Wiley is not only fav orably known throughout the Unit ed States as a scientist, but through out Europe as well. While Dr. Wiley disclaims that ho had anything more to do with the national pure food law than that of an adviser to the committee having the measure in charge, it is well known that it was largely through his influence and knowledge of de tails that the bill was perfected, and made acceptable to congress, the president and all concerned in the matter of pure food* Well Posted on Agriculture. [ While not as practical a farmer as Secretary Wilson, Dr. Wiley's long connection with the agricultural col leges and with the department of agriculture, as well as his wide knowledge of agricultural conditions iin this country, all coatribute toward making bim an ideal man for the prospective vacancy. With the single exception of Secretary Wilson, no man connected with the department of agriculture is as well and as fav orably known among all classes of citizens of the United States is Dr. Wiley. The doctor is now in the very prime of his usefullness, mentally and physically, he is a prodigous worker and bears the reputation of getting the best results from his subordinates without playing the part of a slave driver or that of a tyrant. His co-workers believe that his promotion to the head of the department he has served so faith fully and well in a subordinate posi tion will, when it takes place, be a deserved one. It will be in line with the oft-proclaimed policy of the pres ident to elevate to positions of trust and responsibility those men in the government service who have demon strated their capacity to make good. I Dr. Wiley obtained great newspa ' per fame several years ago by organ izing the so-called "poison squad," composed of young men in the gov ernment employ, to test the action of certain chemicals on the human system. His experiments in this di riction were highly successful. BREWSTER'S MILLIONS Begins in this issue of THE WENATCHEE DAILY WORLD It is a clean, wholesome serial story of unusual in terest.

STRENGTHEN FLEET ON PACIFIC COAST EIGHT OF THE MOST MODERN BATTLESHIPS WILL SOON BE STATIONED ON THE PA CIFIC COAST CHICAGO, Feb. 4.—A dispatch to the Tribune from Washington says: "Secretary Metcalf will issue this week a most important order, desig nated to increase the strength and effectiveness of the American navy. He will consolidate the squadrons now on the Pacific coast and in Asi atic waters into one fleet under the supreme command of Rear Admiral Willard H. Brownston. This fleet will engage in comprehensive man euvers, the object of which will be the protection of the Pacific slope and our Pacific dependencies in case of war. It is stated authoritatively there is no connection whatever be tween the reorganization of the navy and the controversy with Japan over the San Francisco school question, and the exclusion of the Japanese laborers from this country. Indeed, the general board of service, the president of which is Admiral Dewey, is president has been considering the steps which should be taken to make more effective the ships now in the Pacific. "It is apparent to any one who un derstands the situation, that it would be an easy matter for the' American warships to be beaten the way th->y are now stationed. There is a squad ron consisting of four protected cruisers, two of which are heavily armed, two gunboats and five torpe doboat destroyers In Asiatic wat ers there are four armoured cruisers, two monitors, five protected cruisers, a number of gunboats, a division of five torpedo boat destroyers and four others. United, these would be a match for any of the great powers" having ships on the Pacific, but they have proved a force which would have to be looked after one even more formidable and thus would not be constituted a serious menace to any plan of campaign which might be determined upon. "Secretary Metcalf and the general board do not propose, however, to permit the American fleet in the Pa cific to be weaker than a possible enemy, and there is reason to be lieve that before many months have passed a squadron of battleships, numbering eight of the most modern vessels flying the stars and stripes will he stationed in the Pacific."
