IS WILL SAVE 816 EXPENSE BILL PROVIDING FOR PENITEN TIARY OFFICIALS TO GO AFTER ALL PRISONERS. Claim That State Will Save Fifty Per Cent in Transportation by the New Plan. OLYMPIA, Feb. 27.—The house corn hit tee on appropriations has introduced a bill by which it is expected at least 50 per cent, of the money now expend ed by the state for transportation of convicts, insane persons and incorrigi bles, will be saved. The measure will provide that where the convicts are to be sent to the state prison, insane persons to the asylums, or incorrigible youths to the state re form schools, employes of the respec tive institutions shall be sent to the city where such state charge is located and shall take him or her to the insti tution. At the present time this work is part of the perquisites of the sheriff in each county. When persons are to be sent to a public institution he sends deputies, and this work is considered, as a rule, as "easy money." Under the new law, should it be approved, the per diem of the special deputy will be saved and it will be unnecessary to send but one state employe where the sheriff usually dispatches two depu ties. It is anticipated that the new law will effect a considerable saving, esti mated at as much as one-half by some of those favoring the measure. How ever, it is expected that the sheriffs will bitterly oppose its passage as cut ting off a goodly portion of their fees and there is no doubt the proposed piece of legislation will have a strug gle should it pass. TURNER HAS A BOOM. New Families Are Moving Into the New Town. Turner is having a |>oom, and it is going about it in a most unique and original manner, says the Dayton Dis patch.

Mr. McDowell hitches thirty-two of Mr. Thronsen's horses onto a house ahd with rope lines from fifty to sev enty-five feet in length, he ascends to the top of the house and drives leisurely along without disturbing the family within In any respect. Thus, like Romulus populating Rome by en trapping the Sabines into the city. Mayor Thorp is rapidly increasing the population, wealth and industries of Turner by hauling in houses from the surrounding country containing whole families. Another influence that is giving the growth of Turner an im petus is the fact that the owner of the townsite gives a fine building lot to anyone who is willing to build a house or haul one in ready built from the country. And the next thing we hear will be of some young fellow in Turner going Paris or Troy one better by not only kidnapping some fair Helen, but by taking a well furnished house with her. Deafness Cannot Be Cured by local applications, as they cannot reach the diseased portion of the ear. There is only one way to cure deaf ness, and that's by constitutional rem edies. Deafness is caused by an in flamed condition of the mucous lining of the Eustachian Tube. When this tube is inflamed you have a rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and when it is entirely closed, Deafness is the result, and unless the inflammation can be taken out and this tube restored to its normal condition, hearing will be destroyed forever; nine cases out of ten are caused by Catarrh, which is nothing but an inflamed condition of the mucous surfaces. We will give One Hundred Dollars for any case of Deafness (caused by catarrh) that cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh Cure. Send for circu lars, free. F. J. CHENEY & CO., Toledo, O.

WHITMAN BETTING READY BASEBALL TEAM HAS BEGUN PRELIMINARY PRACTICE ON ON ANKENY FIELD. * Captain Dutcher Expects to Have the Champion Ball Tossers Among Northwest Colleges. Spring athletics have started with a vengeance at Whitman college. The wonderful weather of the last few days seems to have got into the arms and legs of othletes from senior to first-year preps, and Ankeny field and the baseball diamond are presenting a sight every afternoon which delights the heart of every lover of the Ameri can game or the cinder path. Prospects for success in both base ball and track may in general be said to be very excellent, although many of the old veterans who helped to wrest victory from Pullman and Moscow will never don blouse or jersey for the Missionairies again. "Hez" Brown, for three years captain of the baseball nine, will be sadly missed. Besides being a good man behind the bat he inspired his team with a wonderful amount of enthusiasm. On the track Captain Howard Merritt will be almost as badly missed. He was champion mile runner of the northwest and was unquestionably good for ten points in any meet that Whitman would be in this year. In spite of these losses, however, both Whitman team will be well cap tained this spring. Both Captain Thos. Dutcher of the baseball team and Captain James Hill of the track aggre gation, besides being the best athletes in their respective teams, are two of the most popular fellows in college and will be sure to get all there is in the men out of them. Ridgway Gillis, '06, is manager of the baseball team this year. He already has seven intercollegiate baseball games on the string, five of which will be played in Walla Walla. The team will blossom out this year in new navy blue uniforms, caps, etc. These have already been ordered and will make a big difference in the appearance of the team. All games will be played on the diamond back of the conservatory for one more year, but the diamond will be swung around to the left so that there will be a straight shoot of over 238 feet from home plate over center field, doing away with ground rules al together. The season will probably open about the first of April with a series of practice games. Fort Walia Walla will probably have a team which will com pete with the college boys. The University of Washington which played two such exciting games here last May will be here again about May 5 for a couple more and Whit worth college, Tacoma, may be here about May 24, although this game has not been decided on yet. About May 17, the Whitman team will take its annual trip north to try conclusions with Puilman and Moscow on their grounds. There will be six old men bacV in baseball work this spring. Captain Dutcher, the best amateur third base man in the Inland Empire; Louis Sutherland, the foxy first baseman; Elmo Reser, the swift little shortstop of last year; Arthur Morgan, who made second a hard place to pass; Dal las Garred, the slim pitcher; Rad ford Rigsy, old reliable in the field, and Roy Perringer, who played cen ter two years ago. There is also quite a bunch of new material out every night at practice. Among them are Stone, Piatt, Salleg, Bassett, a good man in field, Daven port, Alpha Cox, a swift baserunner and little Carl Burch, who can handle the leather sphere with a skill that puts lots of the big fellows to shame. Said Manager Gills today: "Pros pects are good for a winning team and prospects for lots of games are good. We are going to have the best grounds in town this year and the best we ever had." Recently tne British government so far recognized the Importance of the wireless system as to permit wireless telegrams to be handled through the postal telegraph offices of the United Kingdom. Commenting upon this, the London Dally News says there could hardly have been a more brilliant open ing for the' scientific side of the new year than lies in the simple fact that from the smallest British country vil lage the word " 'Lucania' will be a suf ficient telegraphic address for a vessel that is plowing the Atlantic."

JENNIE PROVES A BAD ONE SPENT TWO YEARS IN WALLA WALLA PEN—WILL SOON BE THERE AGAIN. Ransacked Wealthy Woman's Apart ments and Now Faces a Long Term in State Prison. Jennie Marshall, a female burglar released from the Walla Walla peni tentiary less than a year ago after serving a sentence of two years, is un der arrest at Seattle again, charged with ransacking a wealthy woman's apartments and stealing more than $1000 worth of valuables. The Mar shall woman is the only female burglar ever serving a sentence in the Wash ington penitentiary. The evidence against the woman is said to be con clusive and it is expected that she will occupy her old quarters at the penitentiary within a short time. Years ago the Marshall woman was a belle of Issaquah, but started her downward course when she became addicted to the use of cocaine. She soon took up the use of opium and then she reached the lowest depths possible for a woman. After serving a sentence in the penitentiary the woman returned to Seattle where she has figured in numerous escapades, serving several short sentences in the city and county jail. She lately com pleted a term in the Victoria jail for stealing. Dramatized Tarkington Novel.
