CWAR WINS HIS FIBHT ASSURED THAT HIS CANDIDATE WILL GET THE POSTMASTER SHIP AT VANCOUVER. Principle Recognized by President May Affect Tacoma' and Seattle Appointments. I >, W-* A Washington dispatch says that Representative Cushman has won his long fight over the Vancouver postof fice. being assured that Dan Crowley, his candidate, will be nominated next week to succeed Lloyd Dubois, the present incumbent, who has no poli tical backing. For more than a year Senators Foster and Ankeny have fought Crowley and sought to have C. G. Shaw appointed. The president takes the position that congressmen are, under ordinary circumstances, entitled to consideration in filling postoffices, and except under peculiar circumstances he will not permit sen ators to control these positions in Washington. , Unless Senator Foster acts prompt ly in recommending Dr. LeCrone for postmaster at Tacoma, the president may allow Cushman to name the suc cessor of Postmaster Cromwell, and likewise may permit Representative Humphrey to name the postmaster at Seattle. If Humphrey controls the Seattle office, Postmaster Stewart will be reappointed, though there is some disposition to sidetrack Stewart be cause of his indiscretion in showing the president's mail to a Seattle pa per prior to the president's visit to that city a year ago last summer. Sen ator Ankeny has been insisting upon the appointment of W. A. Carle, as postmaster at Seattle and is still back ing him. SOUTHERN THREATS FOR HIM. South Would Retaliate On Lessened Representation With Ostracism. LA PORTE, Ind., Jan. 3. —Congress- man Edgar Dean Crumpacker of this district, who will introduce a bill with the convening of the new congress for a reapportionment of the congression al representation of the southern states, is being deluged with threaten ing letters written by prominent southerners. The threat is openly made in the communications to Con gressman Crumpacker, that if the pro posed bill is enacted into law, the peo ple of the south will retaliate by os tracizing and persecuting the north erners residing in their midst. Mr. Crumpacker says he will not be de terred from making a fight for a re apportionment, and he believes, from assurances which he has received of support for his measure, that it will be made a law.

SCOLD MAY BE DUCKED. Old Blue Law Invoked Against a Ver- bal Nuisance In New Jersey. NEW YORK, Jan. 3.—Mrs. Charlotte T. Woods, indicted by the grand jury in Jersey City as a "common scold," the penalty for which, if found guilty, is "ducking" at the hands of strong men, yesterday made open defiance and said she will begin prosecution against the neighbors who, she says, have been persecuting her for ten years. Trial was set for January 22, and all Hudson county is preparing to crowd into the court house on that date. For the first time Mrs. Woods made open accusation against those who complained against her. "I have been indicted twice for this absurd charge, which has been raised up out of some old law books, from statutes that are as old as civilization in the state," she said. "The judge suspended sentence. Again I was in dicted and again sentence was sus pended. "This time I shall have what you call a 'show down.' I wish they'd 'duck' me in the pond at once, because the water is growing colder every day. Wants a Ducking. "The people around here have been persecuting me for years. The boys have broken my windows, thrown mud, snow and dirt on my sidewalk, and committed other mischief. 1 shall make charges of malicious mischief and destruction of property against some of them. If they let me alone I would say nothing to them. But can one stand idly by and calmly see one's property destroyed?" Mrs. Wood is charged with using violent language against children, be rating them soundly and of being a "verbal nuisance." Under the old statute, if she is found guilty, the i sheriff will see to it that she is | strapped to a chair and, under direction of the law taken to the nearest body of water, where the chair will be fastened to the end of a long board, balanced on the shore, and with occu pant "ducked" in the water until, in the opinion of the sheriff, all the scolding propensities have been washed away by the purifying punis ment. Last Case In New Jersey. The last "ducking stool" case New Jersey knew occurred in Hudson county. Martha Van Beck, living at Paulus Hook—then called Poulous Hauck—was the victim. That was in 1723. Elizabeth De Peyster Van Vorst was the complaintant, and she watched with glee while the sheriff treated the woman who had annoyed her to a cold I bath. It is on record that the un- I fortunate frau talked volubly in court, berated everybody there, and talked sputteringly even while being ducked. Mrs. Wood is in nowise affrighted by the possibility of punishment, be cause, she says, she is neither garru lous nor abusive. It is believed, too, that if she is tried and found guilty, some way will be devised for the in fliction of the strange penalty. Three Reasons. "Yes, I've got two good reasons -for marrying him." "What are they?" "One is that I want to. and the other is that papa don't want me to; and— oh. yes—another girl wants to." Read the Statesman. TURKISH RUG ttPAIWNC By a native from Turkey.
