GOOD WORK AT REFORM S0H00L State Treasurer Hastings Gives Glowing Account of Its Progress Special Correspondence Teller, to Evening BOISE, Sept. 9.—State Treasurer Hastings has recently made a trip to the southeastern part of the state and in an interview gives for publication stnne excellent observations regarding the State Industrial school at St. An thony. Regarding this, Mr. Hastings says: During the past week I had occa sion to visit the southeastern part of our state and while there I visited, not 'ifficially, for I am not a member of the board of control, but simply went as a visitor, the Industrial Reform school at St. Anthony, Fremont county, an in . . . the northeL' h f T 7 ^ Pe ° ple ° f ! much nf the ti! "'"v, State know i much Or tno £TOO(1 that thp 1 8 .. , " e institution ls doin »- was authorized In 1903 by 1 legislature nf that year, with an! appropriation of $50,000 and the set ting aside of 40.000 acres of the state lands. The income alone of these state lands, whether in rentals, or leases or income derived from the use of the proceeds of the sale oT the land only can he used. The land itself or its proceeds must forever remain invio late. that is. it will always he a per manent fund. The board purchased 200 acres of choice land and the school was started and the results as I found therh are as follows, a fine three-story adminis tration building, with basement, a large cottage and foundations for two more. The building of two more cot tages and an east wing were author ized by an act of the last session of the legislature, $50,000 being appro priated for those purposes, also a wa ter supply was authorized of which they are greatly i n need of. The foundations of the two cottage^ are built by the labor of the bodys con nected with the Institution, also they are building a large workhouse of ce ment blocks, which they make on th6 ground. There are 103 pupils at present, 74 boys and 29 girls of from eight to twenty years old, while eight years ls the youngest a child can be admitted yet there are a few- under that age. In Mr. and Mrs. Humphrey, who have charge of the school, I found a most competent couple to manage the af fairs of the school and to take charge of the training of the children. Mr. Humphrey is a gentleman of varied attainments whether in the Sunday school or teaching the boys to make MmeM blocks - hl« hobby seems to be the betterment of his children, as he calls them. Down in the basement under the su pervision, of one of the Instructors were six or eight boys washing and ironing. Close by were the furnaces for heating, also the electric machinery or lighting, adjoining was the culinary department, where a number of girls ^. 0yed in prPparln * 'he next meal, While the Institution has a reg ular engineer yet the boys are taught to take care of the machinery so that case the engineer should be inca ___ __ , , ......* «'iiwuiu up mca paeltated there are a number of boys capable of running the plant. Let me «ay right here that the principle cor The n ? u! the SCh ° 01 ,s ''leanllneaa. The first thing that r child coming into h»thf C K° 01 ,S taU * ht 18 the usp the bathtub and cleanliness and his last Instruction given him before he leaves the school is cleanliness. I venture to make the assertion that there are a great many homes In Idaho which -------- cannot compare In cleanliness with Jhe institution, particularly in their kitchen wnrt m.. v...,, — ___ their kitchen work. The butter Is made by the scholars and eggs, poultry and vegetables are found in abundance. In other parts of the building. Oirls were making their clothes and dresses, also the boys' shirts, and all work that can possibly be done in that line is done right here. The beds are arranged as systematically as at a military post and everything Is scrupulously clean. One thlag that particularly attract ed my attention was the quietness and courtesy of the pupils. I prezume there must be rude ones at times, but the atmosphere ls not eonducfve towards coarseness. Gentleness, courtesy and kindness are the ruTTng qualltits. but flmnes and discipline are first and foremost. As for religious teachings, th« priest, bishop and minister are all upon an equal footing. Always wel come in every way, and every man J and woman who will teach the beauti ful and good in life is always welcome. I was pained to see so many chil dren there, but glad to see their home, j glad to see the Interest taken in theli ! welfare, and if any child can live •here and not come out a wiser, purer ! and better child and a good citizen, | then I have made a mistake in my ] guess, and while we have in the state j institutions which teach the classical] part of an education more. It Is ft _ fTe- ] ha table question in my mind if this j school is not doing more for humanity I than all the other state institutions PARAMOUR NOW TELLS HER &T0RY Runyan's Affinity Denies Having Accepted Money From Him NEW YORK, Sept. 9.—Laura M Carter, the woman indicted for com plicity with Chester L. Runyan, who absconded with some $97,000 of the Windsor Trust company funds, and In whose flat the thief was arrested on her betrayal of him to the police, to day took the witness stand In her own behalf. She denied having willingly been a party to the crime, and reiter ated her declaration that she told the police of his whereabouts only because he had threatened to kill her after her discovery of his identity. Before Mrs. Carter was put on the enure airs, ! "tand juror No. 4 had Runyan recalled i and questioned him as to the amount 1 „ Of money left in the flat at the time 1 of h)s arrest . Runyan said he had counted $79,500 at first In the presence of the woman. About $64,500 was in the chiffonier when the police were called. Only $15.000 had been given to the woman. And he could not explain how it was that the police found only $54,400. Mrs. Carter gave her name as Mrs. Laura M. Ison. She said she had been married; that her husband abused her. beat her and that she had come to New York in search of work in a depart ment store, but could not find It. This was about seven years ago. She then described how she had first met Runyan and how he had called at her flat and presented her with $5,000. Up to July 4 Mrs. Carter said she nev er had any idea who Runyan was, but after learning that he was the ab sconding teller, she advised him to re turn the money to the trust company, but he refused and threatened to kill her if she said anything about him to anyone. The next day, after consulting her friend, Harry Klrkstein, she said she went to the safe deposit vault, where she had placed the money given her by Runyan, and got $5,000. 'Laura,' he said. 'You ain't going to throw me down now, are^you?' con tinued the witness. No, I said, T ain't going to throw you down, George, hut I don't want none of that money on me,' I said. So he took the $5,000 and put it in the drawer with the rest. "After that we sat down and had lunch together, i was afraid if I went out for lunch he would get suspicious and try to kill me or kill himself. Aft er lunch I went to the police station and told where he was." The Carter woman was taken all over Runyan's testimony. She care fully denied It In every detail, where It did not agree with the story she had told on the stand. ABE HUMMEL DETERIURATING NEW YORK, Sept. 9.—"Abe" Hum mel's physical and mental condition is such that the date for the second trial of Harry K. Thaw for the murder of Stanford White cannot be set. He is not now able to testify. It is doubt ful whether he will rally sufficiently while In the penitentiary to make a competent witness, and the state may never again be able to rest its case "— ~~ —™ a * aln8t the Pittsburg murderer on the î little lawyer. little lawyer. Hummel, once one 0 f the keenest lawyers at the New York bar, has sunk Into a state of lethargy in the prison hospital of the Blackwell's Isl and penitentiary, according to Dr. Sig mund Tyriberg. president of the board of medical control of the peni tentiary. While Hummel can be roused Into a perfectly rational conversation by an effort and while he tells me min utely and correctly the symptoms of the trouble which keeps him In the hospital," said Dr. Tynberg, "he is not fit to testify hi a court of justice or take part In any serious matter that might concern others."

The old soldiers received em~ thusiastic welcome from their locti comrades and the reception commit tees on passing through the depot gates and all are loud in their pra'rae of the ample preparations made for their entertainment. Various state headquarters were opened today in the hotels and numer ous reunions and receptions were held. The social events planned for the vis itors are many and elaborate. Th« political aspect of the encampment ha* been enlivened by th© arrival of sev eral of the candidates for commander in-chief. The leading candidates ap pear to be Patrick Coney of Kansa* and Gen.

Great Council of Red Men. '''>«4. NORFOLK, Va., Sept. 9.—The Great Council of Red Men of the United States met in Armory hall In this city today and will remain in session until the end of the week. At the opening there were nearly 400 delegates In at tendanee, representing nearly every state and territory of the Union. It is reported that President Roose velt may come to Norfolk later ln th« week to receive the final degree ln th« order, in which case the Initiation will be conducted by the crack degree team of Muncie, Ind. ,„ lv __ USE WIRELESS TELEPHONE. Successful Demonstration of Possibili ties Along Tbia Lina. The first actual application of wire less telephony to practical work any where in the world, says the Ameri can Telephone Journal, was made la Put-in-Ray, on Lake Erie, during the week of July 15 to 20, in reporting the regatta of the Interlake association. A wireless telephone outfit was In stalled on board the yacht Thelma, while a shore station was equipped at the Fox dock In Put-in-Bay. Al though not perfectly suited to the task on account of her short spars and wooden hull, the Thelma enabled ex cellent results to be obtained with tre wireless apparatus trroughout the en tire regatta. The distances which were attained even exceeded the ropes of those In charge of the apparatus. The ThClma followed the competing yachts or mo tor boats around the course through most of the races and accounts of oc curences during the races were tele phoned to tre shore sffitton exactly a« the eents occurred. Not only was speech transmitted, hut singing, whistling and gramaphone music or dialogues were lnterolated with the newsy reports. People on the yacht and ashore were surprised at th* clearness and fidelity of the reproduc tions. Friends recognized one anoth er's voices without difficulty. The scratching of the gramophone needle over the disk, after the record had been played through, even the tap ping on the mouthpiece of the micro phone transmitter with a pencil wu dlstlnctlyl heard at a distance of three miles from shore. The greatest dis tance at which the reports from the yachts were heard and recorded was four miles. The aerial wires led through the roof of the whee] house to a small cross arm on ton of the foremast and thence to a smaller arm on the main mast. Ground connection was a first made to the propeller shaft, of her twin screws, but as this was found In sufficient, more area was added by fastening two sheets of zinc to th« yacht's hull at the bow.
