She excels the Massachu setts for defense and offense, and only needed a trial to prove that she can carry these powers at a speed greater than any )( her rivals. The average speed of 16.78 knots, practically for six hours, shows be yond question her ability of sustaining great speed for a long period. In every respect her engine performance was with equal."

Judge Nelson, whom he succeeds, w In 1858 by President Buchanan and w longest in the service of ar.y Judge In the United States courts. Èv Judge Lochren's appointment as commis sioner of pensions, it has been the desire of his friends to promote him to the bench in case Judge Nelson would resign. His preference has been for a bench rather than an executive position. Leading law yers In Minnesota have petitioned for his appointment as United States judge.

Many resolutions were Introduced at today s session and were referred to various com mittees for consideration. The coun -il has not yet decided whether to give the press an abstruct of President Traynor's annual message, which is reported to he a very spicy document. Last night the advisory board held a meeting to consider the action of its ex ecutive committee In blacklisting McKin ley. A special oath of Beerecy ?s said to have been Imposed upon the board in re- j latlon to the McKinley matter. Twe re ports are In circulation as to the course Itkely to he pursued.

The most noteworthy feature of today s the innova session of the A. P. A. w; tlon made by giving to the public the annual address of President While some parts of the document were erased by a special committee the body of It gives more authentic Information upon the purposes of the order than has ever before been mad" public upon au thority. President Iraynor deals at great length with the present phases of the A. I*. A. He says: "The American Protective Association Is to«lay a recognized factor in American politics, whose favor Is openly courted by political leaders, organizers and postu lants for'public office, who a year ago Ig nored, treated with contempt and de nounced It. "The A. P. A. Is a standing menace to the perpetuity of every party, being com is it Is, of the members of every party. So long as It remains unmoved by threats, unyielding to the pressure of party spectcd by every party which dares not incorporate the platform of the order in its own. The great majority of our order waited patiently during the last year for some sign from one or the other of the political parties that It has received a change of heart which It Is honest enough to publicly express. There are a finton of Iowa, ra, Bradley of Kentucky and Stone of Missouri, w'ho have been fearless in their Indorsement of our purpose, and while It may be fortunate that they are republicans it Is more than unfortunate that they are not either the republican party or the representatives of that body, and the question should be asked and answered here and now, that while the tolerated hlch achines, It will be hated by and re few republicans. Gear of : j ' A. P. A. Isms of these men by the party for the A. P. A. votes each of them carries behind him, what assurance have we that this toleration will not cense the moment the votes have been delivered?" Referring to the advisory board, which created a sensation by Its attack on Mc Kinley, he says: "A source of prospective danger Is the national advisory ooard as It is at present constructed. In Its polit ical form lt is ln «langer at any time of coming into collision with the supreme ex board, which Is the supreme oil out of session and undoubtedly the superior of all other boards. At present It recognizes council l «•cutive no superior but the supreme •ssion, and may pursue one policy while the supreme president and his cabinet pursue one entirely opposite to it," and suggests that the powers of the board be specifically named. He recommends that no candidate for a national political office should receive the Indorsement of the board until all ells have passed upon him; I that no notifications of a political natuie from state or supreme council be manda tory, but merely advisory. state c ON BEHALF OF THE TRADE!* S s«* tor WHn* ANkH that Colville he u Highway.

Tn* Ford and Baker light for the appoint ment was a hitter one and was pending a long time, but was finally settled very quickly. It Is now said that one of the good republican citizens of Pullman wrote to one of Washington's senators a lengthy letter, urging him to work for the polntment of Baker, which letter, as .s his custom, he filed with the postmaster general without comment. He had not read the letter closely or he might not have done this, but the argus-eyed post master general discovered a little tence way dow letter which stated that the appointmen: of Baker would be one of the best thing that could happen for the republican par ty in Pullman. Now, this is Just wha Postmaster General Wilson did not car* to bring about, and no sooner had he rear! this letter than he called for the papers in the case and sent the name of Mr. For* to the president.

May 16.-Of all the official* I In the war department at the .Ike the Spokane Army P Idea. .. , presen' time, the most unfriendly to the Spokane army post was General Batchelder, quar termaster general. It is quite fitting therefore, for the people of that section of eastern Washington to rejoice to known that on July 27 General Batchelder will L* retired and the quartermaster general's office filled by some one more friendly to the Interests of the Pacific northwest. One of the most promising candidates for the place is Colonel James G. C. Lee, t I s now at the head of his department the Pacific coast. Colonel Lee was the first army officer to urge the citizens ot Spokane to acquire land for a concentrât - «?d army post at that place. This he o*d five years ago. Spokane might reasonably, therefore, expect a friend where there had been a foe before, in the event of Colonel Lee being chosen as the successor to Gen wno "li | eral Batchelder. i UNCOVERED A DIG BODY OF ORE W « xlerful Strike Reporte«!
