Senator Foster Tells of the Need of
Giving Products Outlet to
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
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

ly that in the past too much attention

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
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
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."
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
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
"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
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
"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
The jury returned a verdict of ' sui

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
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.
