King's Speech and Budget
Settled in Meeting of
English Cabinet
LONDON, February 11. The terms
of the king's speech, with which the
now parliament will bo opened, were
iiually agreed upon at today's ndjjurn
mont of tho cabinet meeting. Subso
quontly tho ministers dispersed, soveral
going to tho country for the week end,
so there will be no further conferences
befgro Mondny.
The cabinet had before it today v
sort of ultimatum from tho National
Directory of tho United Irish leigue,
modelled on the lines of John lted
mond's speech last night.
The communication pointed out tho
pledges which would be required re
garding tho lords' power to veto and
homo rule for Ireland as a condition of
Nationalist support on the budget and
generahwork of tho parliamentary ses
sion. .Members of tho cabinet appear to
have reached an agreement as to the
course of .events during the debate on
th king's speech. i
Premier Asquith will nfakc a pio
uouncement of tho government 's .scheme
for dealing with the house of lords'
eto, but as this measure still is in a
nebulous form tho subject will bo givn
further discussion and nothing will be
done to give effect to tho scheme until
tho budget is out of the way.
The budget is expected to occupy a
week or ten days aud dobato on the
speech from tho throno probably will

Space Provided in New Of
fices -for Showing of
District's Ores
With tho new homo of the chamber
of commerce ready lor occupancy, an
active campaign has been started to se
cure for tho headquarters of this com
mercial body a mineral exhibit that will
be unsurpassed anywhero in the terri
tory. Tho new chamber of commerce office
contains ample space for the installa
tion of a large mineral exhibit. Cases
for' mineral collections will be placed
along tho walls on both sides of tho
room and an effort will then bo mado to
becuro specimens from. practically qv
ery developed mining property in the
Oldbo distrjet.
F. F. Towlo is making an effort to
securo from Phoenix tno mineral ex
hibit of tho Gibson Copper company,
which attracted so much attention at
the last territorial fair. This collec
tion of Hpccimons is ono of the finest
in the territory and its addition to the
chamber of commerce rooms will form
a nucleus around which a gig collection
should bo built.
E. F. Kellncr has also promised an
other fine' collection of specimens and
this exhibit will probably bo installed
within a short time.
Whilo tho larger mining companies of
this district will probably contribute
claborato collections of mineral speci
mens to tho chamber of commerce, this
collection is not intonded to bo exclus
ive, by any means. Every man in tho
district whoso mining property shows
good, ore is asked to send in specimen',
no matter if tho property is only a
prospect. Tho specimens will bo ar
ranged, classified and labeled, showing
tho property from which they came.
This is practically tho first attempt
mado in this city to securo a general
collection of mineral specimens from
tho ontiro district and it should meet
with favor from mining men and min
ing companies in tho Globe district
generally and provo a big advertising
feature for this part of tho country.

Will Not Be Given Rank of
Rear Admiral and Big
Salary for Life
Congressman Thinks Discov

Value to Country .
WASHINGTON, D. C, February 11.
Peary will not be given the rank of
rear admiral as recognition of his dis
covery of tho Pole, if congress approves
the action of the houso bub-committeo
on naval affairs. Tho subc-ommittee
voted unanimously today to report ad
versely on the bills offered by Senator
Halo and Itepresentative Allen.
A letter from Secretary- Meyer was
received giving Peary's naval record,
stating that ho should bo designated

Meyer said P-uary enlisted in the
navy in 1881 and has had more than
ten years on various leaves of absence.
The secretary spoke of Peary's discov

most commendable task, having no mil
itary or naval significance," and rec
ommended that Peary bo retired as a
civil engineer, with the pay of a rear
Hoberts of Massachusetts, a member
of tho sub-committee, said he saw no
reason whatever for conferring such an
honor upon Peary: .
"Tho discovery of the pole," said
Hoberts, "has been absolutely of no
benefit to the United States, civiliza
tion or the naval service. He has been
absent from duty in tho navy depart
ment most of tho time ho was connected
with it and has done nothing to entitle
him to this honor.
"I think probably congress might
look with favor upon giving him some
other Li ml of recognition. For instance,
a gold medal.
"But I am not in favor of giving
Peary a. pension for what he hag done.
I do not think ho is entitled to it."

Strong Resolutions ' Passed
and Wired to Cameron"
' at Washington
Republican Chances Endan
gered by Tactics of
the Senate
DOUGLAS, February 11. At a' mass
meeting of republicans tonight the fol
lowing resolution was unanimously
adopted and ordered wired to Delegate
Cameron at Washington:
Hesolvcd, That we, members of 'tho
Itepublican Club of Douglas, note with
exceeding regret tho humiliating quali
fications which aro sought by the sen
ate committcQ on territories to attach
to the statehood bill for Arizona, and
we call upon our member of congress,
Jdilpu Cameron, to use all means at his
command to defeat the so-called Dilling
ham bill, aud have passed in its place
the Hamilton bill, which was unani
mously passed by the house, and grants
statehood to Arizona unqualifiedly in
accordance with tho sacred pledge of
the republican national plattorm.
Hesolvcd, That the peoplo of Arizo
na are a distinctly American type and
public education is on a higher plane
than any other territory over admitted
to the union; that the population and
material resources of tho territory of
Arizona meets every requirement for
statehood, more than any territory ad
mitted in the past fifty years and there
foro makes this appeal on the grounds
of justico only
ltesolved, That it is the sense of tho
club that passage of -an unqualified
statehood bill by the present session of
congress means that Arizona will take
place firmly in tho republican column,
while on tho other hand, to deny state
hood or postpone statehood until the
president and congress have passed up
on Arizona's constitution, which is the
business of Arizona and Arizona alone,
wil lalicniate thousands of voters, and
greatly endanger the success of tho re
publican party in the initial state and
territorial election in. 1910.

Heney Closes Argument and
Judge WilL Charge Jury
This Morning
In Closing Address Hen'eV
Attacks Evidence of
Defendant - "
PORTLAND, February-11. In an
argument that held the attention of
almost half a thousand spectators who
had jammed into the federal courtroom,
Francis J. Heney brought to a close
today the trial of the case against for
mer Congressman Binger Hermann,
charged with conspiracy to" defraud tho
government of part of the public do
main. All tllat remains is the charge to the
jury which Judgo Charles Wolverton
will make tomorrow.
Heney s rebuttal argument followed
a conclusion of the analysis of the tes
timony, and the final plea for acquittal
begun yesterday by Colonel Worthing
ton. Heney attacked' the principal con
tentions of the defense. Taking up the
testimony of Henry Meldrum, former
surveyor of Oregon, which the defenso
yesterday assailed, the prosecutor con
tended that the- defense placed the
wrong construction on some of Mel
drum's Washington testimony, and
placed too much importance on that
which they brought to combat it. "
lie react a letter from Mrs. Silver
stein, Meldrum 's stenographer, who
sworo that during this trial she had nev
er talked to Meldrum nor written to
Hermann about purchasing school
lands. In her letter, Mrs Silverstein
reversed herself and admitted "doing
both of theso acts. The aged witness,
Baumhocr, who was employed in Mel
drum's office and who testified that he
recollected nothing of the alleged con
spiracy, meeting in Meldrum 's office in
1S101, Heney declared, had simply for
gotten the alleged meeting, as he had
other details of ins office. This, Heney
asserted, was proved by tjie testimony
of Hermann himself, wiio testified that
ho had met many people that day in
Meldrum 's office, while Baumhocr had
sworn he did not.
Every indication, Ileney declared, -showed
that Meldrum was" not perjur
ing himself when he said Hermann and
Franklin Pierce Mays formed their
conspiracy in his office on that day in
September, 1901.
