The Inyo representative did not subside for some minutes, but finally Kiesel asked Pinchot what is being done in the way of refores ation. This was satisfactory, but John Fairweather of Fresno brought matters to an issue by asking Pinch ot: "Are you in favor of admitting lumber free Into this oountry?" In reply Pinchot said: "You have smoked me out." He said lie declined to take a pub lic stand on the question for the rea son that if "the forest service had de clared itself in favor of the admis sion of lumber free into the United States it would have secured the unit ed opposition of the lumber interests instead of what it has now, the unit ed support of these interests, who own four-fifths of the forests of the oountry."

The importance of this Amerioan propos al, it is pointed out, lies in the principle which it establisnes rather than in its application, which may be seldom. General Porter met all w HORACE PORTER. the objections raised with ready argument and finally brought all the oouDtries represented, debtor as well as creditor countries, into line with the single exception of Switzerland, which is neither a debtor nor a credit-orc ountry. There is reason to believe, however, that even the Swiss government will sign the con vention with resreve regarding the matter of jurisdiction. Dr. Drago, while he cast Argen tine's vote in favor of General Port proposal for the reason that it establishes obligatory arbitration in matters relating to contractual debts, declared Argentina maintained her original views on the subject. Only 13 countries, including Brazil, Mexi and Argentina, were represented tbe oommittee of examination, and General Porter's proposition, it has been modified, must be sub mitted for approval to plenary sit ting of tbe oommittee of arbitration, upon which all tbe nations are rep resented. Tbe Austro-Hungarian proposal in the matter of obligatory aibitration was practically wrecked by yester day's vote, aa the majority in favor theieof was smaller than that which supported tbe British proposition on tbe same subject. There will be plenary sittings of the entire confer ence probably on Septembei 7. CLEARING RIGHT OF WAY Active Work on Lewis Road 1$ Begun J.

It is estimated that smokers in Spokane spent from $450 to $500 day for cigarettes be fore the law went into effect, and, while many probably will smoke pipes and oigars in the future or quit the habit, it is declared that a least $100,000 a year will be spent ou the "sticks" outside the state, as the law does not prohibit any one from smoking them.
