P. by Brother BOISE, Idaho, May 9.—An Interest ing decision was handed down from the supreme court yesterday in the case of J. W. Pratt vs the Northern tJxpreas company. It settles the standing In Idaho of the ownership of property shipped over express lines. The circumstances were rather un usual. J. W. Pratt, at Culdesac, In Nez Perce county, owed some money to his brother, Charles J. Pratt, at Lewiston. He had about 2600 In cash which he deposited wth the express com pany, paying the charges for Its trans mission to his brother and taking receipt. This receipt he sent to the consignee. Thisves Steal Money. That night, wthln a few hours after he had deposited the money, thieves broke Into the office and stole th° money. In due time the consignee brought suit against the company, producing his receipt as evidence of ownership. The company protested payment on the ground that since the consignee had never actually received the mon ey it was not his, and he was not the proper person to sue for or claim It. The question has been taken up in various forms In other states, the courts holding both ways. The Idaho court, however. In a strong opinion j written by Jpdge Allshie, says that the company shall pay him the sum, The original case was heard by Judge Steele, and his rulings are sus tained. £ : Î • 1 | * m m m m $ $ ® & $ G A 2 CONTRACTORS WILL NOT Reclamation Service Is Up Against Mighty Hard Proposition WASHINGTON, D. C., May 9.— "Let the work be done by force ac count," has been the order of Director Newell of the reclamation service twice within a week, when contractors either refused to bid, or, bidding, bid too high. One of the pieces of work was in Montana, the other in Oregon. "The people of the West scarcely realise how difficult It Is to Induce contractors to submit proposals, and how often, when they bid, they name an Impossible figure," C. J. Blanchard, statistician of the service, said when asked regarding the Montana and Oregon projects In question. "The In stance In Montana was one In which we advertised for more than a month for proposals to construct a simple earth-fill dam and accessory struc tures on Willow creek five miles northwest of Augusta. But no bids were given. Now we have proceeded to do the work ourselves. Want Too Much. "The Oregon case is even more startling. We asked for bids on 80, 000 yards of earth and rock excava tion, waited more than two months, received only one bid, that from Pa quet, Glebisch A Joplin of Portland at 75 cents a yard for the earth, and of course quickly rejected such as offer. "Less than a year ago we let con tracts at less than 10 cents a yard for earth excavation, although that, probabrÿ-, is too low, and out of 14 bids received none was for more than 18 cents a yard. -• "Yet today, for work on the Kla math canal, we are asked to pay 76 cents a yard. It Is serious, Indeed, for the farmers of the Wect, because every dollar of added cost in con structing an irrigation project they must pay back to the government. The entire cost of building Is to be paid back In 10 equal annual pay ments. Idaho Is Affected. "This condition affects Wyoming, Idaho, Washington and all the other Irrigation states, and the prevalency of excessively high prices for labor and materials today will extend their effect out Into the years to come, while the farmers and fruit growers are j making their payments to the gov- I eroment. ''The reclamation service is anx ious to have the people understand these things fully, so that there may j be no misunderstanding In the fu ture, "However, we are going to hasten the work on all projects now under way, so as to bring the reclaimed lends Into production end the pay ments to the government Just as soon as possible" Mr. Blanchard tells at the govem the last Salt river project In Arizona, where It was planned to build a 63, 000,000 dam and the contractors bid $9 a barrel for cement. The govern ment had estimated the cement at 63 barrel. When the 69 bid came In, with none lower, the engineers looked around the site for the proposed dam and found they could build a cement mill there themselves, and this they did, saving the government 61.000,000 In the construction of that dam alone.

Pringle, editor or the Labor World of Pittsburg, last night received the fol lowing letter from President Roose velt In acknowledgement of an editor ial recently published In his paper In connection with the Moyer-Hakwood controversy: "The White House, Washington. May 5, 1907. "My Dear Mr. Pringle:—Nothing that has been spoken or written that I have seen of the Moyer and Hay wood controversy has pleased me as much as your letter and editorial. In my letter I wish to drive a wedge In between the honest, law-abiding la j bortnf , man wtth whom x fe „, much S y mpa thy, and those worst foes of the movement who preach anarchy and lawless violence, Just as I wish to see a wedge driven between the capitalist who Is an oppressor or swindler and the capitalist who strives to do rlht by all his fellows—the man who Is an American citizen first and a capitalist second. Above all, I want to express my absolute agreement with your final paragraph, running as follows: " 'The Labor World has not a word to offer regarding the guilt or Inno cence of Moyer, Haywood and Pettl bone In their terrible position. W' hope they are innocent and will be proved so, but what we want to point out in that their Innocence of the preferred charge against them will not. In our estimation, exonerate them from the charge of preaching an In dustrial and social pollcv that Is damning to the best Interests of the wave workers of the country.* "With all good wishes, believe me, slncerelv yours, "THEODORE ROOST5VET ,T." j I j "THEODORE ROOST5VET ,T." TREAT THE SKIN THROUGH THE SKIN "Blood Disease" Idea Is Swept Away by the Latest Diacovsrias. Recent discoveries show that "skin" diseases and "blood" diseases are the same. The doctor treating small pox, scarlet fever and measles found that the skin cleared after the disease departed. For in these cases the skin bore only the SYMPTOMS of disease. Real SKIN diseases, such as es zema, are diseases of the skin Itself. Recent developments of the germ the ory give the PROOF that real skin dis eases are due to the destructive ef fects of a germ which lives on the weaker parts of the skin. Skin spe cialists therefore began a search for something that would destroy this germ, and Dr. Decatur D. Dennis found that oil of wintergreen, properly mixed with Boothing Ingredient*, made a wash that was SURE In Its results. This wash was called D. D. D. Pre scription. So widely known became this prescription that a company un dertook to compougR It, and It Is now on fhe market as "D. D. D. Prescrip tion.' D. D. D. Is so effective that many physicians prescribe It who avoid all proprietary medicines. Many give to their patients even though it means loss of fees to' themselves, for the cure Is quick and requires only care by the patient alone. If you wash with the mild D. D. D. soap and then apply D. D. D. Pre scription. you will feel AT ONCE that wonderful relief from Itch. The drug gist who keeps D. D. D. Prescription can give you D. D. D. Soap. "For eighteen months our little girl suffered with ecsema, and the D. D. D. Prescription cured her sound and well WITHOUT LEAVING A SCAR" writes Cladle Fesmlre of Coleridge. N. C. "The disease covered her face, head, arms, breast and from her knees the ends of her toes, j tried many home remedies and two physicians, and they all failed and she Just got worse. **D. D. D. Is such a great remedy for cuts and many other th1«~« pvprv person ought to have a If you are suffering from eczema, psoriasis, salt rheum, ringworm, dan druff or any raah, try n bottle of d. D. D.
