The Lewiston Evening Teller INVENTION MAY USE STREAMS est German Wizard Has Motor to Utilize the Energy of Rivers The Portland board of trade is In correspondence with an invention In Germany with a view to purchasing a patent front hint which will enable Oregon to utilize practically all the water courses of the state, says the Portland Oregonian, which are now unavailable for power service because there is niw not sufficient fall to gen erate the required amount of electrical energy to make it worth while har nessing them. The invention, according to Secre tary J. B. Labor of the board of trade, is a combination of a low dam and a highly-improved water motor which has the property of magnifying and concentrating energy something after the way in which a telephone trans mitter magnifies sound. The particularly appealing advan tages of the new contrivance is that it is not extraordinarily expensive to ap ply it, is bimple of construction and effective in results where it has been tried on the other side. The peculiar topography of Oregon is such, and the state is so perme ated with a network of mountains streams and rivers that If a device like the one above mentioned could be put to effective use, Oregon could be put far to the fore in the development of electrical energy and lead all states in the amount of power that could be transmitted to towns and cities for the development of all sorts of resources, for turning the wheels of industry, for lighting streets and operating street cars. In fact the uses to which it might be put are numberless. For instance, it could easily be used in ir rigation projects where it would be necessary to raise water to certain levels before distribution. An effort will be made to Induce the German Inventor to come over here to make demonstrations of his invention, for upon the success of the j practical tests would depend the real value of the device. PRESERVING OUR FORESTS It will be unfortunate if for any cause the impression is stamped upon the minds of the people of other parts of the country that the men of the far West are opposed to the preser vation of the forests, says the Denver Republican. The people of this sec tion are practically unanimous in fa vor of protecting the growing Umber on the mountains, for they all recog nize that its destruction would be an overwhelming disaster. Men may differ concerning details of forest administration, but in respect of the broad proposition that the inter ests of the arid region demand that the forests be preserved there is no difference of opinion. The forests are needed to maintain a uniform flow in streams, although they may hav® no effect upon the amount of the rain fall. The decaying matter which ac cumulate® upon the floor of a moun tain forest checks the flow of water and thus acts as a great natural res ervoir. The forests also protect the snow from the direct rays of the sun, and thus prevent it from melting as rapidly as it would were it exposed. About all such matters there Is little dispute, and so the people recognize that by all means the forests should be preserved. The timber value of the forests is another consideration which our peo ple recognize, and it is forcing itself more and more upon them because of the rapid destruction of timber in other parts of the country. The possi bility of a timber famine in the course of the future is acknowledged by all intelligent men. Another thing which the people of this section recognize Is that the pur pose of the federal government in es tablishing and maintaining forest res ervatlons Is beneficent. No one be lieves that any responsible official is prompted by motives of oppression desire to deprive the . people of their rights. Western men may not approve certain features of the forest administration, but concerning the wisdom of forest preservation there Is not shadow of doubt in the minds of a vast majority of the people of this part of the country. Bearing In mind the prevalent sen timent in favor of preserving the for ests, It would be unjust to represent that the most destructive agency Is the (freed of men who desire to cut the growing timber. By far the most de structive agency, as every man knows who knows anything about these mountains,is fire; ynd the state has enacted laws to prohibit the careless ness of campers an* others in conse quence of which Are® hav® sometimes started. It 1® this danger from fire which make® the maintenance of for* est reservations so Important, and which more than any other one thing secures the approval of the people for the policy of maintaining such reser vations in localities where they are es tablished. AMERICAN PLAN NOT THE BEST It is customury with many Ameri cans who "know it all" to sneer at all things European. But it would be ad vantageous to all people if the states men of the world, foregoing for a sea son their provincial boasting, would convene in international session and exchange ideas regarding the world's progress, says Harold Bolce in Apple ton's Magazine. In New York it Jakes two hours to send a special delivery letter from Harlem to Twenty-third street. In Berlin, through the Rohrpost, a letter can be sent a similar distance in two minutes, I was Impressed with the fact when I had occasion to Budapest to send a registered letter. Instead of having to wait for a clerk to copy the super scription and hand me a receipt, I had simply to show the letter, properly stamped, afid then drop it in a me chanical contrivance, which immedi ately issues a receipt card, automatic ally dated and numbered. It makes the system of registering a letter in Hungary as simple as dropping a piece of mail in a letter box in America. I desired to test this Innovation, and so I mailed a letter in Budapest ad dressed to myself in a hotel at Munich. Two hours later I took the train to the Bavarian capital, and the day after X arrived in the hotel I received word that there was a registered letter for me at the postofflee. The German system of postal money orders is far superior, it seems to me, to the Amer lean. You hand the money into i German postoffice, give the address of the person to whom it is to be sent, and walk away with the receipt. That ends your responsibility. The govern m"nt carries the money to the house, and even to the room of the addressee. To this may be added that in Ger many, when you want to subscribe for a paper, you neéd not write to the publisher. You just go to the nearest j postofflee, state the name of the paper you want, pay for one quarter (three months) in advance, and you get your paper regularly. The postoffice acts as an agency for the paper, which is very satisfactory to the publisher and the subscriber, and profitable to the postoffice. WARSHIPS GO TO PACIFIC OAKLAND, Cal., July 5.—Secretary of the Navy Victor M. Metcalf, in an interview yesterday with the Oakland Tribune, confirmed the report that a large part of the United States navy will be soon in the Pacific and in quar ters by next winter. Eighteen or 20 of the largest battleships will come around Cape Horn and a practice cruise will be soon held in- San Fran cisco harbor. "Many false impressions have galn d circulation about the proposed movement of this part of the United States navy," said Secretary Metcalf. "I have held all along that there was practically no significance to this movement from a military standpoint. I stated before leaving Washington, what I am saying now. I thought as the news concerned the people of the Pacific coast, today would be an ap propriate time to announce the exact plans. "It is the policy of the navy depart ment at the present time to keep the fleet in American water as much as oossibie. It is also their policy, as has been stated, to keep as large a number of battleships together as pos sible. We might as well spend the money that is devotSd to our navy in American ports as abroad. In the past we have sent squadrons to various European nations with less advant age than in keeping them at home. "I have planned this cruise around Cape Horn for the practice of the squadron. How long they will spend in these waters I cannot say at pres ent. I can promise the people of Oak of a of a to land and San Francisco that they will see one of the finest naval spectacles ever witnessed in Pacific waters. "I hope that the talk of Japanese troubles and of international differ ences may be dropped by all the news papers of the country. There is noth ing to produce any feeling except this talk of the newspapers. It is without foundation. The story that Ambassa dor Aoki is in disfavor with his own government, I believe purely an in vention. I.know of no reason at the present lima why Japan and the United States should not be on the friondllest terms."

GARFIELD Head of the Interior Dev partment Will Reach Wallace Today James R. Garfield, secretary of the interior, and Gifford Pinchot, chief forester, will be royally entertained during their stay in Wallace, says the Wallace Times. This is assured from the arrangements which have already been mad . The first intimation these distin guished visitors will have of their proximity to Wallace will be when they are met at Saltese by a commit tee of citizens, Messrs. B. F. O'Neil, Stanley A. Easton, C. K. Cartwright, James Murphy, L. A. Smith, F. C. Norbeck, W. H. Batting, J. F. McCar thy and Herman J. Rossi, the commit tee selected by the committee on ar rangements, in turn selected by May or Toole. Immediately after the arrival of the party in this city and after being dined at the Grill a reception will be tendered in the Elks' club rooms. The program will be informal, as will be the program for the balance of the time in this city. It was the intention of the recep tion committee to arrange for the en tertainment of the visitors at a resi dence in this city, but word was re ceived here to the efTect that the trip of Messrs. Pinchot and Garfield was purely business, and they preferred not to be placed under any obliga tions. So rooms were engaged at the Kosy Korner. Whether either Mr. Garfield or Mr. Pinchot will consent to make a pub' lie address is not known. However they will be invited to do so, and in case they accept, the address or ad dress or addresses will be in Masonic Temple theater Friday night. On Saturday morning it is the in tention of the local reception commlt teeto.take the visitors to see the Hecla and Standard mines and bring them back to Wallace in time to catch the noon train for Spokane. It is also understood that while in the city Mr. Pinchot will make an in vestigation of charges made against the forestry service, is MONUMENT TO YALE HEROES Student Patriots Who De fended New Haven Against British Special to Evening Teller. NEW HAVEN, Conn., July 5.—One hundred and twenty-eight years ago today, on July 5, 1779, a small body of beardless Yale students marched bravely out to the edge of the town to give battle to the British veterans who had come to take New Haven. Today a monument commemorating the he roism of the youthful 'students was placed on the spot at West Bridge whore the British were repulsed. The monument cost 630,000, and was designed by James Edward Kelly of New York. The monument consists of three bronze figures of heroic size and dressed in the costume of the college boys of colonial times. They are seen operating a piece of field ar tillery, and the whole is mounted on a pedestal of granite suitably Inscribed. The conflict which the memorial commemorates was one of the stirring incidents of the American Revolution. The British had planned to cause Washington to weaken his forces at West Point in order to defend the Connecticut coast. New Haven, then a town of 1,800 inhabitants, was to be the object of the British attack. Pres dentStiies, from the steeple of Yale college, saw the British fleet preparing to sail from West Haven, and called out the students for the defense of the town. Under General Garth the British forced a Undlng , hotly oppo8ed by the Is Yale boys and the patriots, and pro ceeded to plunder and destroy. A pitched battle was fought at the northwest corner of Broadway, and th® defenders were eventually over whelmed by superior numbers. Mean while the British had landed 1,500 men at Lighthouse Point and ad vanced from the east with the inten tion of forming a junction with those in the town and crushing all opposi tion, while Sir George Collier bom barded the town from the warships in the harbor. By this time, however, the entire countryside was aroused, and the pat riots gathered ln Buch numbers that the British withdrew and burned Fair field. The heroic students of Yale were therefore left in possession of the college town. Century Printing C«. Phene Blaok 601. Basement Lewiston Natl. Bank. FATHER AND SON FOUND GUILTY Must Serve Life Sentence; for [Murder of Sheriff Compton in ALBION, 111., July 6. —David andP Albert Kellems, father and son, char ged with the murder of Sheriff Alex— ander Compton on December 20, 1906, were convicted by the jury and their punishment fixed at life imprisonmenL Both listened to the verdict with stoi cal indifference. In the case of the 19-year-old bay, Albert, mercy was showja, and the death penalty spared only for the rea son that at the time of the deed pos sibly his brain was dulled by w'hisky. The sentence of the court were defer red until July 6, at which time attor neys for the defense will argue a mo tion for a new trial. The crime of which the men are convicted was one of the most heart less ever committed in Wabash coun ty Alexander Compton was one of the most popular young men of the coun ty and the Kellemses lived on his farm near Keensburg. The sheriff was their * friend, and almost the only friend that David Kellems had. On the evening of the fatal day David Kellems, as the evidence seem- ed to show, lured Compton to an alley, in which, hidden behind a telegraph pole, stood the boy Albert with a dou ble-barreled shotgun. As Comptom pased a charge from the gun left th® lifeles form of the sheriff on th® ground, while the boy and his father ran away. Two witnesses were with in sight, and one of them who attempt ed to approach the body of the dead man was ordered to flee if he valued his life. No attempt was made to refute the charge of having committed the deed. The only defense offered was that 0» account of the long-continued indul gence in whisky Albert Kellems had dulled his mental and moral nature to the extent that he was not responsible for his acts. Much expert medical evi dence was introduced in Ijhe attempt to prove this claim. David Kellern* is a socialist and is a practical an archist. He has advocated the equal distribution of wealth and has de clared himself against all the laws that exist. Although the def' ndants were desti Although the def' ndants were desti tute »f means and without known friends, eminent counsel appeared from mother county and for a w r eek battled desperately to free the men. It has b on rumored that Ch cago anarchist® put up a fund of $500. Kellems' wife, from whom he is sep arated, has a married daughter ani two bright little sons, and she furnish' ed some of the most damaging evi dence against the defendants. When the daughter and son-in-law called at the jali to bid the young man good-by, old man Kellems greeted his daughter with a storm of curses and proceeded to curse those who testified against him until he was forced to desist.
