MUST OPEN UPPER RIVER RIVER COULD BE MADE NAVI GABLE FROM KETTLE FALLS TO WENATCHEE. Senator Foster Tells of the Need of Giving Products Outlet to Railroads. TACOMA, Wash., Nov. 23.—At the request of the Pacific Marine Review, Senator Foster made a statement, of which the following is a part: "Agreeable to your request I submit herewith a rough estimate of river and harbor improvements in this state, for which I am using my best efforts to secure suitable appropriations, and which, together with others that in this hasty compilation I have not men tioned, I know from personal inspec tion, made during the past summer as the northwest member of the senate committee on commerce, are worthy of government aid. "Fully $5,000,000 can be expended immediately to good advantage, and ultimately $10,000,000 can be wisely utilized in the improvement of out various rivers and harbors. Needs of the Columbia. "The upper Columbia river is sadly in need of improvement, in order that the products of the farmers, in partic ular, can he shipped with reasonable promptness and at reasonable cost to available markets. Years ago the war department planned a very extensive project for this waterway, but no ac tion looking to appropriations followed. When I visited that part of the state some time ago. I found large quanti ties of fruit rotting in the orchards, because it was impossible to secure transportation facilities. In many in stances farmers Vlrove 10, 15 and 20 miles to reach a railroad, while with an appropriation of $50,000 at once and an additional $150,000 later the river could he opened for navigation by flat bottom boats the entire distance be tween Wenatchee and Kettle Falls. At the present time river navigation is carried on between Wenatchee. Brews ter and Bridgeport, but with the open ing up of the upper Columbia a diver sified trade in farming products as well, no doubt, as the opening of coal mines known to exist along the Co lumbia river and the shipping of lum ber from timbered lands contiguous to the Columbia river for inland con sumption would follow. This is a wonderful fruit producing country, and this slight recognition of its enor mous yield of fruit and grain is en tirely warranted on the part of the government. For Eastern Washington. "The estimates given above are in addition to an estimate of $4,000,000 for the further improvement of the Columbia river as a recognition of the requests and demands of the farmers of eastern Washington, who are seek ing an all water outlet lor their pro ducts. The above estimate includes further s improvement to the upper Snake river and at The Dalles, while still further appropriations are to be asked for the mouth of the river. "The appropriations for the improv ■lent of the Columbia river are. of course, not charged entirely to either Washington or Oregon, but the im provement is considered necessary on behalf of the demands of commerce, and so far as this state is concerned, particularly on behalf of the farmers and grain producers of eastern Wash ington. "A complaint is made very frequent ly that in the past too much attention Men Growing Weaker Strenuous Life is Using Up Their Vital Forces and Energy Faster Than Nature Replaces Them. As a result many are being stricken with paralysis, locomotor ataxia, and nervous prostration. To overdo any thing is harmful, and a continuation of it will wear out the strongest man. Overwork, worry, brain-tire, high liv ing, dissipation and other excesses and abuses waste away the most vital elements of the blood, brain and nerve forces, and disease sets in. At first there will be a general indisposition. Poor appetite, indigestion, severe headache, wakefulness and weakness in the back and spine, the temper irri table, the spirits depressed, the mem ory poor and the mind weakened, end ing in premature decline or decay. Dr. Chase's Blood and Nerve Pood is romposed of the same elements that have been wasted and worn out in the Wood, brain and nerves. By making new blood it turns weakness into strength and forces new life and the vigor of youth into every portion of the body, restoring the patient to per fect manhood. Weigh yourself before taking It. Price 60 cents. Sold and Guaranteed by the Pioneer Drug Store has been given to the Columbia river and that sufficient appropriations have not been made in recognition of the growing commerce of the state of Washington. In view of the fact that the state of Washington has not here tofore held the strong committeeships which it now does, it is natural that this complaint has been made. Wash ington now has representation on both the senate and house committees, which handle the river and harbor bills, and there is no question in my mind but that this state will hence forth have fair and just recognition on all appropriations of this nature. On the Lower House. "On the north side of the Columbia river in the state of Washington, par ticularly in the southwestern part, there are needed a number of im provements which are warranted by the present and prospective tonnage, which have not heretofore been given adequate or sufficient recognition. I re fer more particularly to Vancouver, which is within a few miles of the mouth of the Willamette river and which has been deprived for years of warranted deep water navigation. An appropriation of from $60,000 to $120.- --000, will be made for the deepening of the channel of tjie Columbia river be tween the mouth of the Wilammette river and Vancouver, in order that lumber and other commodities may be shipped in vessels of suitable draught out into the ocean. On the Okanogan. "On the Okanogan river improve ments have been made in accordance with appropriations secured during the last two congresses and a still fur ther expenditure Would be a great aid in improving the navigability of the river into a large and fertile tract of country which, with the irrigation projects. I feel warranted in stating as chairman of the senate committee on geological survey, now being plan ned and executed by the geological survey, will result in an ultimate ex penditure of upwards of $20,000,000 within the next few years."

President Impatient for Conference With Speaker. WASHINGTON, Nov. 23.—President Roosevelt is waiting with some impa tience the coming of Speaker Joseph G. Cannon, whose views on the subject of tariff revision are likely to have much to do with the question whether an extra session of congress will be called in the spring. The president does not intend to in vite a quarrel with congress. He is telling everybody that he believes the tariff should be revised as soon as practicable and is sounding out all the members of congress who come to Washington. But the president has dis covered that there is a strong "stand pat" sentiment in congress which will do all possible to delay or defeat re vision. Speaker Cannon is recognized as be ing of the "stand-pat" faction. In speeches he made during the cam paign just closed he spoke in favor of a stand-pat protection policy and against reciprocity in competing pro ducts. Whether Mr. Cannon will be willing to oppose his personal senti ments to the plans of the administra tion remains to be seen. The speaker absolutely controls the house situation and can make or break any revision program. Senator Cullom, who is in town, is quoted as being opposed to revision and in favor of the appointment of a commission to consider and delay the subject. This is also the view of Rep resentative Tawney of Minnesota, member of the ways and means com mittee. DECLARE FOR S. H. PILES. King County Legislators Place Pledge On Record. SEATTLE. Wash., Nov. 23.—The King county legislative delegation has declared unequivocally for Samuel H. Piles for United States senator. The delegation met in the Piles headquarters. Senators Palmer, Hem rich and Tucker and Representative Weir were absent. Representative Gleason was unanimously indorsed by the house members for speaker. The following resolution was adopt ed and signed by those present and later by Weir and Tucker: "We here by declare that we have but one can didate for the United States senate from King county, and our candidate is Samuel H. Piles. We will vote and. work for said Samuel H. Piles until he is elected." After this resolution had been signed by 22 members, Senators Palmer and Hemrich signed a modified form of it, as follows: "We hereby declare that we have but'one candidate for the United States senate from King county, and that our candidate is Samuel H. Piles; and that we intend to elect him." THE EVENING STATEBMAN WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 1904. BRAIN MUST DO ITS WORK A PROFESSOR SAYS INABILITY COMES TO ATHLETE FROM MENTAL DISPOSITION. Gives That as a Reason for the Loss of Many Football Games in the East. CHICAGO, 111., Nov. 23.—Speaking of the recent Chicago-Northwestern football game, Dr. Walter Dill Scott, professor of psychology, of North western university, said that the game was lost by the team from the Method ist institution because of the players' mental condition during the contest rather than because of the physical in ability to cope with the Midway ath letes. In discussing the psychology of football in general, the professor said: "I have made tests in the psycholo gical laboratory of young men who are prominent athletes and of others who are lacking in all athletic ability. I have thus tested scores of men from Northwestern as well as several from other institutions. I have found the characteristics of athletes to be pro- "The first thing brought out in the tests was that athletes are not stronger than any other healthy young men. Many good football players are not particularly strong in tests of strength. The next thing which I found In my tests was that athletes become ex hausted more quickly than non-ath letes when both are putting forth their best energy for a continuous period. In my tests to reach complete ex haustion, I found that athletes would be exhausted within a few minutes, or even in a few seconds, but persons of less athletic ability could not be ex hausted in the same time. "My explanation is that an athlete is a man who has all his muscular en ergy under control, and is able to try harder than others. He is thus able to exert himself in such an extreme man ner that the tissues of the muscles and nerves are unable to recuperate as fast as they are torn down, and exhaustion results rapidly sis a natural conse quence. "I have found in laboratory tests that a man's ability to put forth ef fort is dependent upon man condi tions other than his general physical condition. Thus I have discovered that some athletes are able to double their strength under coaching. When a man is trying his best he still ma> not be putting forth more than half his possible strength. "Another thing that affects physi cal strength is the general condition of the mind of the person tested. Thus every element of pain reduces the strength, and every element of pleas ure increases it. Factory hands can produce more in a day under pleasant than unpleasant conditions. Pain re duces the vitality; it affects the work ing of the lungs, the heart and the general condition. "Pleasure of any sort enhances the working of the bodily functions. Thus under pleasure the heart functions are more effectual, the respiration is bet ter, the wasted tissue in nerve and in muscle is carried off rapidly and re cuperation keeps pace with exhaustion. Thus I assume that the players on both teams are especially athletic and that all were keyed up to their highest pitch. The energy put forth by both teams was at first practically equal and results were equal, but the situa tion became discouraging and thus weakening to one side and pleasing to the other and stimulating them to re newed efforts. "The results soon became apparent. The Northwestern players were using their strength up faster than Chicago, and the difference between the two teams in amount of available energy became greater as the game pro gressed. The Northwestern players had not sufficient vitality left to with stand the strain and many became in capacitated before the game was com pleted." YOUNG GIRL KILLS HERSELF. Coroner Holds Mother Responsible for Seventeen-Year-Old Suicide. LONDON, Nov. 22.—' It is" a pity that you did not keep your eyes on her instead of sending her adrift." So said the East London coroner at an inquest on Saturday to the mother of Ada Eleanor Thornhill. a girl of 17, who committed suicide. The girl, who worked at a biscuit factory, had been keeping company with a young man named Cox, of whom her mother did not approve. The mother said she ordered her to "clear out" on July 30 last and had never seen her since. Her body was. taken out of the River Lea, A letter to her sweetheart, Cox, was read by the coroner, and was as follows: "Dear Fred: I write these few lines to you to bid you good-by till we meet in the next world. What made you say that you would not come again until you got work? Dear Fred, you have been good to me when you were at work, and I could have done my best while you were out, but. no. you are too proud; you would take nothing from me. Would Rather Die Than Be Alone. "Do you think I could go out en joying myself when I knew that you had not a penny in your pocket? Dear Fred, you could have had half what ever I had, but, no, you were too proud. I love you, Fred, and I cannot bear you to stop away from me, so I am going to end my life. I love you. Fred, better than my life. "When you receive this I shall be dead at the bottom of the river. I hope you will forgive me, and God. When I am gone, Fred, go round to where I am lodging and ask Belle to give you my ring box. and in it you will and the ring you gave me. "Take it, and when you are looking at it sometimes you think of the girl who you loved, and who loved you so much that she would rather be dead than live without you. I hope, dear, you will excuse mistakes in Kr»S let ter, because I c an hardly see to write, I am crying so, and cannot help it. "Forgive me for breaking my prom ise. I meant it when I said I would see you on Tuesday, but I cannot. Good by, Fred, and may God bless you. From your unhappy sweetheart. Nell." Girl's Sweetheart "Seeks Death." The coroner informed the jury that when Cox received this letter he cut his throat and was now in Poplar hos pital. He remarked to the jury that it was all very pathetic, but a great mis take. The girl's mind must have been unbalanced. The jury returned a verdict of ' sui cide while of unsound mind." SAYS SHE'LL KEEP THE JEWELS. Miss Judge Is Surprised at the Suit of John W. Young. NEW YORK. Nov. 22. —"I will not give up a penny. This suit of Mr. Young's against me is absurd. If he gave me my jewels it was of his own free will and to sue me, for them now is the most remarkabel thing I ever heard of. I don't think any jury in the world would decide that I owe Mr. Young a penny." This is the reply Lillian Judge, for mer fiancee of John W. Young, who has been sued by Mr. Young to recover $23,000, the value of diamonds he claimed he presented to her at the time she promised to become his wife. Mr. Young is one of the men wro promoted the disastrous Shipbuilding trust. Mr. Young had purchased the jewels in dispute from a London firm on cred it, giving shipyard trust stock as se curity. With the collapse of the trust, the jewelers sued Mr. Young for the amount of their bill. The trust com pany of America paid the bill and took over the worthless bonds and then began pressing Young for payment. It is this pressure, it is said, that has prompted Young to bring suit against Miss Judge. Miss Judge was formerly an actress. Plant Fall Bulbs Now Phillips Floral Co. Walla Walla, Wash.
