Mr. Sunderland By WALTER PARKINSON Copyright, 1310. by American Press Association. MAKES TAX REFORM PARAMOUNT ISSUE Speaker Mooney Urges' Legis lature to Get Busy. DUMPED AM) DISGUSTED. Aftor every Republican paper In Ohio had boon, claiming for weeks that Pros. Taft was back of tho Woods' utility bill and tho Lnngdon tax bill, an "Inspired" artlclo from Washington In Brothor Charlon P. Tnft's paper t Cincinnati renounced tho presidents rcnponslblllty for them and declared that ho had not oven seen either of thon. Both these bills wore Introduced n Repub lean party monsures. They wore to bo tho ohlof fontures of tho Requbllcnn party program for tho h:Ioii. Thoy havo been ooritlnuouBly :alIol '"ho Ro(iiblIcan measures." Before 1t got tho ulcknamo of "futility Mil" tho Woods' bill was ropeatcdly referred to by Republican papora as Proaldont Tatt's roforni measure 'to chockmnto tlovornor Harmon, and nltto as tho Tuft-Woods utilities bill. Speaker Modnoy wan supposed to have brought Ins' actions direct from tho Whlto Houno to tho Re publican majority in tho legislature to have them ptuued. No wonder llopubllcnn lenders and tlu'Ir followers In tho loglalu turo wore llabborganiod by tho an nounoeruiuut that thu prosldont would no longer bo put In tho attl tudo of being renponnlblo for thorn. It Is claimed that ufter tho Woods' "futility hill" was drafted It was Hunt to W a s hi n g I o n for in Hpootloiu It It was not Inspected hy Pp flldont Taft, thon who did In upoot It?

Taft from tho awkward dilemma of having his stnto rnonsureu boeomo ns unpopular In tho stato as his nation al mcasurea aro gottlng to bo In tho nation, has put tho Uopubllcan ma jority of tho Ohio legislature In u pUll mora awkward und humiliating jposlMon. Tho legislature Is In tho Columbus, 0 March 7. Holding tho creation of a responsible adminis trative taxing board to bo tho funda mental step In tax reform, Speaker Moonoy of tho lower branch of tho Ohio Gcncrnl asnombly asked tho leg legislature to get busy and pass tho Laugdon bill, "or other similar meas ure," with Inclusion of extending tho Nichols law not only to railroads, but to all other public sorvlco corpora tions. By this action Speaker Moonoy relocated the public utilities hills to secondary positions In tho legislative calendar. Corporations will then "bo valued as going concerns at their truo valuo la money." That ho bollevos to bo Just, and declined no greator liijustlco could bo perpotratcd on tho farming classes and other realty owners than tj tax realty at mo cents on tho dol lar and not provldo for putting utility property on tho tax duplicate at a like voluntlou. Lawrence Langdon has draftod amendments to his bill extending tl Nichols lnw to all public utilities. These amendments will bo ndopted by tho taxation cimmttteo today. Tho bill will ho further rovampod. Speaker Moonoy was reluctant to say anything which might bo con strued as favoring a particular bill or us appearing to ndvlsu members, but the Importance of accomplishing real taxation reform and hnvlng that ro form fair to all ana not a pleco ot ono-slded fnvnrltlem persuaded him ho should say something. Very True. A grandmother was reproving her little grandchildren for making so much noise, "Dear mo, children, you aro so noisy today! Can't you bo a llttlo moro (pilot?"

BEFORE AND AFTER What Ope Year of Life In White House Has Done to Taft Only the Brute's Head Ohowed Above the Water, and tho Well Pieced Bul let, Fired From on Elephant, Entered tho Nostril and Broko His Neck. An Interesting account of a tiger hunt Is given by one who hid n wide experience In hunting this most dan gsrous of beasts. Mounted upon clc- phnuts, the writer and his companions hud been beating tho jungle without making n And until, ns thoy were about to give up tho search, a sudden dlsturbhuco among the elephants ap peared to betoken a tiger near at hand. Giving directions to the others ns to tho order of marching their ele phants, the writer ordered hl3 ma hout to turn Into tho thick feathered foliage to tbp left In search of a pool o water which ho remembered to be thore. , Thoro was a slight descent to a long but narrow hollow about fifty or sixty yards wide. This was filled with clear water for au unknown length. I was Just about to make a remark when, Instead of speaking, I gently grasped the mahout by tho head us I leaned over tho howdnh and by this signal stopped tho elephant. There was a remarkablo sight. About 120 yards distant on my right the head nnd neck of n lnrgo tiger, clean and beautiful, reposed abovo tho surface of the water, while tho body was cooling, concealed from view. Hero was our friend enjoying his (pilot bath, whllo wo had been pound ing nwny up and down tho Juuglcs which ho had left. "Fire nt him." whispered the ma hout, "or you will lose him! no will see us and bo off." "Hold your tonguel" I answered. "Ho can't see us, for tho sun Is nt our back and Is shining iu his eyes. Seo how green thoy arc." At this moment tho tiger quietly rose from his bath and sat up on end llko a dog. I never saw such a sight. His head was beautiful, and the cyc3 shone llko two green electric lights as the sun's rays reflected from them, but hi hugo body wns dripping with muddy water, ns he had been reclin ing upon tho alluvial bottom. For quite n minute the tiger sat up in tho samo position. At last, as If satisfied that ho was In snfety and se clusion, ho oneo more lay down with only tho head nnd neck exposed abovo the surface. "Back the elephant pently, but da not turn nround," 1 whispered. Im mediately the elephant backed through the feathery tamarisk without tho slightest sound, and wo found our selves outside tho Jungle. Wo could breathe freely. "Go on, now, quite gently till I press your head, then turn to tho right, de scending through the tamarlck till I again touch your turban." I counted tho elephant's pnecs as sho moved softly parallel with tho Junglo until I felt suro of my distance. A slight prcssuro upon tho mahout's head and the elephant turned to tho right. Tho waving plumes of tho dark greon tumarlsk divided as wo gently moved forward, and In another mo ment wo stopped. Thoro wns the tiger In the samo position, exactly facing mo, but now about scvcnty-flvo paces distant. "Keep tho elephant quite steady," I whispered, and, sitting down upon tho howdnh seat, I took a rest with tho rlllo upon tho front bar of tho gun rack. A pleco of tamarisk kept wav ing In tho wind Just In front of the rlllo beyond my reneh. Tho mnhout leaned forward and gently bent it clown. Now all wns clear. Tho tiger's eyes wero llko green glass. Tho ele phant for n moment stood like stone. I touched tho trigger. There wns no responso to tho loud re port of -six drains of powder from tho "ilvc-soven-soven" rifle, no splash In tho unbroken surface of tho water. Tho tiger's head was still there, but In u different nttltudo, one-half below tho surface and only one check und ono largo eyo still glittering llko an emerald above. Upon examination It proved that thoro was no hole whatever In that tiger, the bullet hnvlng entered tho nostril, broken tho neck and ruu along tho body. Tho nnlniul consequently had never moved. This tiger when In Id out straight, but without being pulled to increase Its length, measured exactly nluo feet nnd eight Inches from uoso to tall. Youth's Companion.

Whllo ono year In tho Whlto Houso has reduced Prosldont Tnft's avoirdupois only qvcu pounds, Intimate friends say flint tho president's iiiullo, whllo not completely Inst, has assumed a moro serious expression, but this Is ac counted for by Speaker Cannon, who jays "It's u ncilous Job being president." His Lact Request. Charles Dickons used to relate an anecdote of the hist moments of Faun tlcroy, tho great banker, hanged for forgery In 1S21. Illsr elegant dinners had always been followed by somo re markable nud matchless curacao, tho sourco of which bo kept n deep secret, Thrco of his boon companions had an lntorvlow with lilm In the condemned cell tho day before his execution. Thoy wero about to retlro when tho most lmpresslvo' of tho thrco stepped back nnd said: "Fnuntleroy, you staud on tho verge of tho grave. Remember tho text, my denr mnn, thnt 'wo brought nothing Into this world, and It Is certain wo can tnko nothing out.' Havo you any objection, therefore, to tell mo nowons a friend, where you got that curncao?'' Llfo Is fruitful In tho ratio In which It Is laid out lu noblo 'action or patient porsevorauce. Llddou. Miss Couiicllmiin doted ou the nov els of Clarence Sunderland. lie had u faculty for taklig a motif from the realm of sin und treating It so In genlously that It held the reader spell bound und so deftly that the horrible features wero Ue.it In the background. Mr. Sunderland received many letters from readers of bis works asking questions about some point of espe- cla nterest to tho writer. Among those who wrote lilm was Miss Coun cilman, wishing to know If be Intend ed Abel Mnxey, one of his characters, for n good or a bad man. Mr. Sun derland replied that, nithough Mnxey had poisoned three different people, ho Intended him for a good mail. The story had been written with n pur pose, that purpose being to work out n theory. Miss Councilman's admiration for the author was in proportion to her want of understanding of bis mean ing. There must be great depth to an Intellect that could see good In n triple murder, and she knew there was profundity In the theory worked out In the novel, for she did uot under stand n word of It. She wrote itgnin to Mr. Sunderland, and his reply. In which the word "ganglia" occurred several times n word tho had never hoard before Increased her admira tion for lilm tenfold. Tho correspondence went on till n meeting was arranged between the correspondents. They were to meet nt the ofllee of Mr. Sunderland's publish ers. Miss Councilman did not live In tho city. The was a denizen of the country. So on tho appointed day she took a train to keep the appointment. In seats ndjolnlng hers were two men who from their rough costume looked ns If they belonged rather In tho bag gage car. "Spudgeon." said ono of theso men to the other, "what nre you going to do with Ilnrberg?" The man addressed looked furtively nbout lilm, then replied In n low tone: "Kill him " Miss Councilman started. She glanc ed nt the speaker, and. whether ho bore the marks of a villain or whether her Imagination pictured him as such, he certainly looked murderous. "How you going to do It?" "I tell you. Krlnklo." said Spudgeon, "the trouble In tho way" Hero the door was opened, and the rattle of the train prevented the lis tener from hearing nuy more of the reply. Tin, next bit-of the conversa tion she heard was from Krlnklo. "I'vo only been obliged ;to kill thrco persons." "That's nothing. I'vo killed twelve. When you'vo killed thnt many you're up n stump for a now way of doing the Job." "I'vo no business to do thnt kind of worl:. It gets on my nerves. What I do takes an nwful hold of me. I enn't sleep nights. 1 seo the ghosts of thoso I'vo murdered, and they muko mo crawl." ' "Humph! Mine don't troublo mo." Then they fell to speaking of some thing else. A diver had gone to the bottom of ft reservoir full of wnter, been caught In tho mouth of an cscapo ptpo and sucked In. Tho conversation alists had gone to tho spot for the pur poso evidently of enjoying tho ngony of thoso, who wero Interested In tho poor creature below, for they talked over every terrible fcaturo us though they enjoyed it. All this was too niuc.li for Miss Councilman's nerves. She nrose nnd went to tho other end of the car. Sho wondered If she had not better speak to the conductor. Could he know thnt ho had two such ogres aboard his train? Certainly tho polleo should bo Informed. Nevertheless she dared not havo anything to do with tho matter. Tho man Spudgeon beforo confessing that ho was going to put Ilnrberg out of tho way had given her n look as though ho feared she might hear lilm. Ho would discover sooner or later that sho had given lilm away and would probably kill her. This last considera tion decided her to hold her tongue. In novels sho had admired those who risked death for Justice's sake, but when it eamo to giving her own llfo for the cause sho was not to be count ed on. So sho sat shivering In a cor ner till tho train rolled Into the termi nal and waited till the two ogres had got out beforo shu dared leave tho car. Miss Councilman took a cab and was driven to tho publishers. Sending In her card to tho senior partner, sho was ushered lute his private otllce. "Ah, Miss Councilman! Miss Coun cilman, this Is Mr. Sunderland." Mr. Sunderland advanced, with a smile. Miss Councilman shrank away, "Spudgeon!" Bho gnBped. "That's my rcnl name," replied tho gentleman. "It's so fearfully homely that I wrlto under nnothor." "But tho peoplo" She could not go on. "What people?" "You havo murdered!" Tho gentleman burst into a laugh. "I recognize you," ho said, "for tho young lady who sat by Mr. Krlnklo and mo ou the train. Wo aro both scribblers and have to commit many murders on paper. Wo had boon studying from real life nt tho sceno of an nccldcut and wore dressed for tho purpose." Miss Councilman wns disillusioned. Without ono word she turned ou her heel nnd left tho two men dumfound cd. Returning to her home, sho drop ped novel rending nnd nover again sought to know an author, Now York, March 7 Tho stockhold- rs of tho Amorlcnn Druggists' Syn- icato met hero today to consldor nys nnd means of fighting tho now .otall drug trust,, which Is trying to obtain control of tho retail drug trado In tho largo cities of tho East and of Now England by establishing "chains" of drugstores selling drugs and other articles usually found In drug stores nt cut prices.
