The Imminent Airship. 1
These are the days when the young La
aeronauts are seeing visions and the its
old aeronauts are dreaming dreams. in
"Human mastery over the air," says asl
Capt. Ferber, the aerostatic expert of
the French army, is virtually a
achieved. None of the startling
achievements of the past, neither th:
steam, electricty, nor the telephone. thb
can compare with what the future ch
now holds in store for us. Not onlY h;t
will the life of individuals be revolu, i,li
tionized, but go ernmtents will be si,
compelled to devise, in almost every At
department, new methods to meet the p'r
changed conditions. This change ed
will come with amazing suddenness, c
an',
and France is taking the precaution ;r
.to meet it." In this last sentence.
says the New York l'ost, Capt. Ferber
doubtless refers in part to the pur.
chase by his governiment of the fly
ing machine built by the Wright bro Ti
thers of Dayton, O., and still credited.
although tlheir dcmnstration was se
cret, with the only sustained flight so
.ever made by a machine not sus NS
tained by gas bags. IBut he evidently ro
has no notion that one inventor or ye
.;one country will monopolize the de
vices for successful flight. As soon as d
one man comes into the open with a
machine with which he can sail abbut
practically .at will, a dozen others will ,s
. promptly learn the trick. To-day the te
. world is waiting to learn the art of In
balancing. It may come. as Capt th
Ferber expects, by "a coordinating ci
central mechanism which will permit th
the operator, with an instinctive C'
. touch of the helm, to right 'his ma- at
chine when it dips to one side or the
other, as the bicyclist to-day- main ei
tains his equilibrium by the instinct.
ive inclination of his body." On the st
other hand, the mere human hand cc
Sand eye may attain that quickness it
and dexterity which Lilienthal and p,
,. Pilcher lost their lives trying to ac- d
quire, but which will make possible ct
navigation through atmospheric cur it
rents and "blow holes" and whirl
pools. The every-day airship trip, at
best, is likely to be as hard on the tl
pilot as a run through the Lachine
rapids. if
There is a wild rumor to the effect
'that the concertina is to be revived.
The concertina was at one time re
garded as a musical instrument by S
'ertain eccentric persons who pro
fessed to enjoy its alleged tones. II
was even supposed to give pleasure tl
when played by those who understood Ii
its painful limitations, says Cleveland ti
Plain Dealer. The concertina is an s
instrument that is unimpressed by c
kind treatment either going or com- 0
ing. When it is expanded it querur
lously wails; when it is contracted it
. plaintively moans. When the concer- r
tina is violently agitated it gasps and
wheezes. Sometimes it snorts. Just b
why it should be revived isn't at all a
clear. It can't be expected to cope d
with either the automatic piano player s
or the talking machine.

Prince Rudolph, of Austria, the king's

hunting lodge at Meyerling, in the

,of her governess perishing in the

'precisely the same manner in which

SUING FO RTIMBER LAND.
Company Claims That Its Confidence
Was Betrayed.
Lake Charles, L.a.: The Chicago
Land and Lumber Company through
its principal officers Friday filed suit
in the United States District Court
asking for the annullment of the con
veyances by whch its 17,000 acres of
hardwood found their way into the
i,ands of W. S. Matthews of Ouachita
,arish and others Tile petition alleges
that their conliden,'e was betray'ed by
their attorney., David G. Robertson of
Chicago, who advis .d them to give
hYm a deed of trust to avoid legal coinm
i,lications and instead procured their
signatures to a r1'Cular conveyance.
A.\fterward Robertson conveyed the
property to M. W. Greeson, who deed
ed it to W. S. Matthews and asso
ciates. The petition states that there
are 1,500 stockholders in the comnpany,
700 of whom are ministers of the gos

NO JURISDICTION OVER RATES.
That Is the Pullman Company's Con
tention.
New Orleans: P. B. Daniels, general
solicitor of the Pullman Company, is in
New Orleans to confer with local rail
road officials and leading railroad law
yers regarding the action to b1 taken
by the Pullman Company, and irici
dentally by the railroads, on the or
der of the Texas Railroad Commission
reducing Pullman fares in Texas 20
per cent after February 1. The inter
ests of the railroads are so closely in- N
terwoven in the controversy with the
int(pests of the Pullmian Company
that it is understood that as yet no de
cision has been reached as to whether g
the railroads alone or the Pullman
Company alone or both Pullman Corn
and railroads should act together in A
the matter of seeking to prevent the
Texas commission's order going into
effect.
The Pullman Company, it is under
stood, contends that so far from the a
commission having jurisdiction over w
its rates, the Texas legislature has r(1 tl
peatedly refused to give it this Jtris- 1
diction, and consequently that the o
commission exceeded its powers when o
it issued the order. It will also be con- ii
tended by the Pullman Company, in a
common with the railroads, that con
tracts exist between the company and
the railroads for the Pullman service; fI
and that the order of the commission, 0
if put into effect, will result in the im- b
pairment of the contracts.

LEVEES THREATENED. a
Sudden Rise in the River Caught MIs I
sissippi Contractors Unprepared.
New Orleans: The sudden rise in
the Mississippi river and its tributar
les has caused grave apprehension in
the lower valley, where many exten
sive levee contracts are only partially
completed, the contractors not figuring r
on high water for six weeks.
Between here and the mouth of the t
river the greatest danger is apprehend
ed. This danger is magnified by the
rackless speed of steamboats, causing
strong waves to wash over the crum
bling levees. The situation reached
a climax Saturday, but while the resi
dents were on the verge of organizing
shotgun patrols to enforce the check
ing of the speed of the steamships, the
various boards, together with the at
torney general of the state, assistant
Sstate engineer and the district attor
ney of that district, issued a proclama- I
tion enjoining the steamship command
ers and various pilot organizations to
slow down their ships.

mt
Fort Reno, Okla.-The finding of ab
a khaki jacket;' one sleeve of which en
was covered with blood, and punc- (k
tured presumably by a Jullet, has in,
led to the arrest of Corporal Knowles, co
of the Twenty-fifth infantry, colored, foL
on the charge of murderously assault- ict
ing Capt. Edgar B. Macklin on the in
night of Dec. 21. wl
Has a Severe Wound. wi
When arrested the negro officer was ag
found to have a severe flesh wound GE
on the wrist, which he is said to have of
been treating himself for over three de
weeks. The wound in the wrist is de- pe
clared to have been inflicted by the wi
same size bullet as went through the 'j
sleeve of the jacket which bore hi
Knowles' initials.
The jacket which led to Knowles' di
arrest was found near the fort on th
Sunday by two boys, in the direction re
taken by the bloodhounds that fol- m
lowed the trail of Macklin's assailant.
Knowles refuses to talk, and Maj. Pen. th
rose, commanding officer at Fort th
Reno, refuses to give any informa- tr
tion concerning the arrest. 111
It is stated upon good authority w,
that Capt. Macklin is positive that the Gi
prisoner is the man who shot him. th

WANTS A GERMAN TARIFF
PRESIDENT ANXIOUS TO HAVE
DIFFERENCES SETTLED.
in
Special Message to Urge Reciprocity s
to Avert Commercial
War.
Washington, D. C.--President Roose C]
velt will send a special message di
to Congress urging' the prompt pas
sage of legislation authorizing the
negotiation of reciprocal tariff trea*
ties with Germ.any. Something
must be done inl;ledlately to bring
about a settleuteni of the tariff differ- st
ences between the United States and
Germany or there will be a large fall
ing off in American tbade with that
country. A modus vivendi providing is
for the minimum tariff rates of Amer- b
ican goods going into Germany is now
in eftect, but tuls expires Marcan 1, on
which date the German government r,
will enforce its maximum tariff rates
against American goods exported in
Germany. In order to reaca a basis
of settietmeut of the trouble the presi
dent sent a commission of tariff ea
perts to Ge,iany, at the head of
which is Director of the tensus North.
This conuaissiou is now at work and
has nearly compieLeu its tusk. i
President Ruosevelt has decided to
direct the commaission to hurry
through its work and to cable him the b
recommendations so he can lay the
matter before Congress at once.
Unless twere is some legislation at
this session of Congress authorizing
the president to enter into reciprocal
trade treaties wita Germany there is
likely to be a disastrous commercial
war between the United States and
Germany. Commercial interests
throughout the country are deeply
concerned over the question that they
are urging the members of the senate
and house to take effective action.
Heavy exporting Interests in the
West are bringing strong pressure to
bear upon their representatives in
Congess to support any measure look.
ing to a relief of the commercial sit
uation with Germany. These inter
ests have been enabled by the modus
vivendi negotiated by Secretary Root
and Ambassador Speck on Sternburg
to continue uninterrupted their busi
ness relations with Germany. but, as
this arrangetment will soon expire,
they are now manifesting fresh con.
cern over a further and more perma
nent modification of certain tariff
schedules a a applied to imports from
Germany. It is known that the presi
dent and Secretary Root all along
have favored the making of reciproc
ity treaties with Germany, and now
that the subject will soon come up
again in acute form they are under
stood to be more anxious than ever'
to receive the necessary authorization
from Congress to negotiate these
treaties.
