Marshal and Attorney for New Federal District May Not Be Made at Present. Now that charges have been filed with the attorney general of the United States against George Baker and Joseph Lindsley, the two men chosen by the politicians of Washing ton for the positions of United States marshal and United States district at torney, respectively, the district wlB have to do without officers until after an investigation. The department of justice has informed Senators An keny and Piles that protests have been filed and the senators will now call on the attorney general and learn the basis of the charges. If they should prove serious and the senators are unable to explain them, they wfU be investigated by special agents of the department. If they are of a dam aging character they will not be over looked. It is believed by the local pol iticians that the charges are of a po litical nature and that the attack on Baker is more serious than on Linds ley. If Baker and Lindsley are re jected Senators Ankeny and Piles will be called upon to recommend new men. Many politicians believe that the fight that is being made against the ap pointment of George Stevenson as clerk of the new district will result in Judge Whitson naming some other man. It is claimed that Judge Whit son would welcome an opportunity of naming some other person for the clerkship and in all probability if the fight against Stevenson is made strong enough the former railroad king of the lobby will be thrown aside. In ttiat event it is claimed that Dr. W. H. Hare would stand the best chance of securing the appointment at the hands om Judge Whitson. Tbe Luck That Never Fails. The individual who declares "the world owes me a living" is at least three-fourths correct in his assumption, but there is a little joker hidden in the one-fourth or such a matter which re mains unaccounted for. Little successes are so easy in this country, especially in prosperous sections, that the tempta tion ls to accept what comes as a herit age that will have no end. Tbis is the "fool's paradise." There is a vast dif ference between merely getting the living which tbe universe has in store for every one and really earning that living. When a farmer's crops are in danger of going to waste and he calls in help at $1.50 or $2 a day, very ordinary la borers may earu the price in that deal. They help recover a prospective loss. But these same men working the sea son through might not earn for the farmer the cost of their board. It is not their fault They are worthy of their hire, but their venture hasn't turned out well. This illustrates how one may get a living and deserve it, too, but yet not actually earn lt. Wben an applicant calls upon a man in commerce for employment the first question usually is, "What are your ideas as to compensation?" The inter view often ends with the would be em ployer saying, "You cannot earn that much here." If the applicant takes the rebuff right, he will either modify his expectations or else look for a market better suited to his wares. What he must do ls to get his earning capacity, whatever it may be, and the right op portunity in contact Then he is on the road to earning his living and can say boldly that the world owes it to him. Where the little joker works mischief and often throws an honest fellow down is in letting him think that be cause be is getting a living he is really earning it and that prosperity has come to stay. Place holding and salary drawing do not necessarily mean pros perity. The test is in earning the sal ary by producing what the world wants. Trusting to luck or to the world's generosity, which ls the same thing, is as foolish a proposition to car ry one through life as banking upon the smiles of a monarch or the promise of a ward politician. It is true that the world's treasure chest opens to golden keys only, yet each man's key must be of his own forging. NOTICE TO CONTRACTORS. Sealed proposals will be received up to Monday, March 20, at 6 o'clock p. m. by School District No. 1, county of Walla Walla, for furnishing the stone for a new school building. Plans and specifications may be seen at the office of Henry Osterman, architect. Bids must be marked "Bid on stone for school house," and addressed to the school clerk. MARGARET CENTER, Secretary.

THE GERMAN APPETITE. It Ia Expansive and Calls For a Gen erous Bill of Fare. Wherever there is a German there you will find enough to eat. It may not always be to your taste, but it is there in wholesome quality and generous quantity, and usually his wife and chil dren are also there to enjoy it with him. It is not unusual to see the en tire family, even down to the smallest child, at a festive gathering, and, how ever queer this may appear to Ameri can eyes, it is a custom of the father land. When the husband takes a glass of wine or beer he is quite willing that his wife should have an equal amount and to give the baby a sip if it so pleases her. The entire code of ethics in Germany is more on an equal plane for men and women than In any other country in the world, and it is no doubt due to this phase of domestic felicity that Germany is practically a divorce less country. At the annual Metzel suppe the men do not come alone, but bring their wives with them. No man of any other nationality in the world can boast the gastronomic capability of the German. The number of glasses of beer that he can consume with ease is something astonishing, and the mix ture of soups, sweet and sour pickles, sausage and cheeses dear to the Teu tonic palate ls enough to give the or dinary mortal indigestion by merely thinking of it—Harriet Quimby ln Les lie's Weekly. Flying- Powers of the Swallow. Not only do swallows capture all their insect food while on the wing; they also Invariably drink while fly ing, and they even feed their young on the wing, especially the house mar tins, although lt is very difficult to ob serve them performing the feat, so quickly is it done. As the young birds arrive at full growth they soon become Impatient of confinement and sit all day with their heads out of the en trance to the nest, where the dams, by clinging to the nest, supply them with food from morning till night, and it is during this period that the young are fed on the wing by the parents. Then, again, the house swallow will wash It self by dropping Into the water aa lt flies. j What 812.75 Will !

HUNGATE, PASSES AWAY. Was Son of Isaac N. Reed Who Platted Reed's Addition to Walla Walla. The Rocky Mountain News, a copy of which has been received in Walla Walla by H. H. Hungate, announces the death at Denver, Colo., February 27, of Hon. Clavin Edgar Reed. The deceased will be remembered by the old timers in Walla Walla. The Reeds lived in Walla Walla from 1870 to 1874, when they removed to Chicago. Calvin E. Reed was generally known in Walla Walla as "Cappy" Reed. He attended the Baker school for about three years. After leaving Walla Wal la he concluded his education at La Harp, 111., and Adrian, Mich., where he graduated from the law department of the University of Michigan. In 1889 he went to Denver, entered the law of fice of Judge Wells, where by his painstaking work and industry he won the admiration of his associates, after which he engaged alone in the prac tice of law. During the sixteen years that he resided in Colorado he ac complished much along various lines of endeavor that was exemplary to his profession, helpful to his country, and strengthening to his state. For more than six years he was assistant attor ney general of the state, which posi tion he held at the time of his death. Since 1897 he was professor of law at the state university. Mr. Reed was a nephew of H. H. Hungate of this city, his mother being Mr. Hungate's sister. IDEA. ."fhe Thonght That Made One Man a Temperance Advocate. An easterner, riding on a mail stage ln northern Colorado, was entertained by a dialogue whioh was sustained upon the one side by the driver and ypon the other by an elderly passen ger, evidently a native of the region. "I understand you're temperance." began the driver. "Yes, I'm pretty strong against liq uor,** returned the other. "I've been set against it now for thirty-five years." "Scared It will ruin your health?" "Yes, but that isn't the main thing." "Perhaps it don't agree with you?" ventured the driver. "Well, it really don't agree with any body. But that ain't it either. The thing that sets me against it is a hor rible idea." "A horrible idea! What is it?" "Well, thirty-five years ago I was sit ting in a hotel in Denver with a friend of mine, and I says, 'Let's order a bot tle of something.' And he says: 'No, sir. I'm saving my money to buy gov ernment land at $1.25 an acre. I'm go ing to buy tomorrow, and you'd better let me take the money you would have spent for the liquor and buy a couple of acres along with mine.' I says, 'All right' So we didn't drink, and he bought me two acres. "Well, sir, today those two acres are right in the middle of a flourishing town, and if I'd taken that drink I'd have swallowed a city block, a grocery ' store, an apothecary's, four lawyers' offices and it's hard to say what else. That's the idea. Ain't lt horrible?"— Youth's Companion.

PAGE THREE WHAT IS NELSON'S FUTURE QUESTION WHETHER HE WILL LAST OVER THREE OR FOUR YEARS. Fight Fans Say He- Should Profit By Experience of Corbett and Terry McGovern. Terry McGovern was an unbeatable wonder for three years until he got the punch that put him out of the prize fight business on Thanksgiving after noon, 1901, in Hartford. Corbett was that man that put Mc- Govern away. Corbett has lasted for four years. Battling Nelson Is now the man of the hour among the little fellows, with James Edward Britt as a rival and yet to be settled with de cisively. Britt has secured a doubtful "native son" decision over Nelson, but this fight may as well be thrown out for all its bearings on the merits of the two men. The career of the two little fellows seems from the records of McGovern and Corbett to be limited. The two fighters in question, however, do not ascribe their downfall to the same cause. McGovern is generally believed to have fallen victim to the demands of too rigorous training. This little fellow kept constantly in training and overtaxed his vitality. He has never altogether recovered his vigor. Corbett's is the usual story of the successful pugilist—inability to stand prosperity. From John L. Sullivan down to the present time the cham pion pugilist has fallen by the way side and taken the count from dissi pation. Corbett is a fast liver. He drinks, gambles, and takes little care of himself. Each succeeding fight has been a harder training proposition. The present one found him evidently in better condition, but as was fre quently prophesied before the fight, he had gone too fast to ever regain the form he showed in his earlier fights. The human system will not stand con tinued abuse and then return to its full strength. Corbett is now a has been. Now the question is: Will Battling Nelson last three or four years only? He has started out on a dangerous career, if he is to last, for he, too, had dissipated pretty heavily after win ning from Corbett. He found it a dif ficult matter to make weight for Cor bett, but his fighting ability and strength have not been diminished evi dently. He is young enough, however, to avoid the danger if he has strength of purpose enough to do so. GOING TO SEATTLE. United States Marshal C. B. Hop kins will move from Spokane to Se attle immediately. He has advertised for sale his Spokane residence and will henceforth be a resident of this city. This change grows out of the crea tion of the new eastern Washington judicial district, which he represents as United States marshal. The fact that he will make Seattle his home ls due to the circumstance that this will be the headquarters for the Western Washington court. For the present at least Mr. Hop kins will retain the marshal's force at Spokane. He has just been instructed by telegraph not to close his Spokane offlce. something that had been ordered when the court was organized.
