IT WOULD BE A NUISANCE. The question of granting a fran chise to an automatic telephone com pany will he considered by the city council tonight. So far as the States man can learn there is no demand in this city for another telephone sys tem for the very good reason that In stead of reducing the cost of tele phone service it will practically dou ble it for every business and pro fessional man who wishes to keep in touch with the patrons of both sys tems. The same would be true of all other citizens who might wish to communicate with friends or bus iness houses on both lines. Oridanarily rival concerns benefit the general public through sharp competition, but nothing of the kind could result from two telephone sys tems. The two systems would cause confusion and prov e an intolerable nuisance. It has proven so where ever it has been tried, as in Port land Los Angeles and Minneapolis. Nobody who has given the question any thought will urge the city coun " cil to grant another telephone fran ..chise, and if any citizen is in favor of it he has not made himself heard. The Statesman is confident that the people of Walla Walla with practi cal unanimity will uphold the city council in rejecting the application of the automatic company for a franchise. If this company had been first on the ground the same argu ment would t apply to allowing any "hello" system to be installed as a rival. The question is not which is the better system, but whether or not a double system would not prove a needless burden and an ex asperating nuisance. HOW TO TREAT YOUR SYSTEM Sir Frederick Treve-*, physician in ordinary to King Edward, has an nounced his conversion to the theory that disease is benevolent and protec tive rather than malignant. Its pur pose has for ages been misunderstood and it has suffered from constant mis representation. A cough is not what you think it, a nuisance. It is na ture's effort to expel the bacteria which otherwise would eat you up. The same is true of the sneeze. No sneeze, no relief from the catarrhal affection. So scientists tell us we have mis taken the function of the micro organisms. We run off with the idea that they are all fighting us and that in order to be healthy we must get them all out of our system. As a matter of fact there is a furious strug gle going on between them. All we "have to do is to learn which are on our side and supply them with proper food, arm and drill them to the point wht re they will kill off the enemy. There ->re in each of us a billion or *STO of cellules called phagocytes. These gentlemen are the police force of your works. If you have a cold' In the head it is because the phagocytes have lain down and let the decaaent globules in your blood have the floor. The thing to do is to pay your phagocytes fair wages, establish three shifts of eight hours each for the day and observe the union scale. Car< must be taken to keep their work at an even gait. When you throw four pounds of raw steak into your stomach at a sitting and then so off to a bill game expecting your phagocytes to de the whole work of reducing this to a pulp and subtract from it all the mi crobes which would make you sit up nights you are likely to produce a strike. Many theories have been advanced on how to live to be a hundred years <dd. It is an insult to nature to set the figures at a hundred. If you treat your phagocytes as an American citi zen should you will live all the time. But science steps in and says, well hardly. The phagocytes ar e like some human beings, they are greedv. don't know when they have done "enough and after having destroyed all the weak spots in your inwards they are likely to go on and nibble vour' mu cous membrame or squat on the south east half of the southwest quarter of your liver, producing effects from which only your heirs will realize a benefit. Science has yet to unravel the mysteries of the ph igocytrian svs tem. We know now that thev "are willing workers but we also know that they are sometimes too willing. When we have learned more about them we shall be in a better position to temper DIAMOND RINfiS m ourvei T large assortment of that are m~*i„„ Diamond Rings are manv stvles that are meeting with unusual favor.

Cox and Foraker are contemplating taking any steps which cannot be taken back they are kindly requested to communicate with Mayor Tom L. Johnson of Cleveland. The •nayor has noticed a startling mortali ty among his constituents of late. Eighty-six of them have shuffled off the mortal coil within a few weeks md in nearly every case the assigned cause has been despondency. Now this is a matter which touches the pride of the mayor of Cleveland. He cannot comprehend how any man 'laving the privilege of being ruled by Tom L. Johnson could be ruled by despondency. The mayor himself is round, jolly, optimistic. Every time he falls down he gets up again. It is true, he does not have far to get be cause he is about as tall one way as the other, but it shows the spirit of the man. He would be glad to have all his constituents share his buoyant spirits. He would like to have them endorse the administration, 3-cent fares, civil service reform, free trade, public ownership, play grounds, gar bage plants and everything else in the garden. If there is a man in Cleveland who is not pleased with life he is invited to write to the nayor and state his grievance. If hi 'onor cannot con vince him that he is wrong, that Cleve land is hot a pla* for death, but for life, then he may go his way in peace, hut first let him give the mayor a fair chance. Suicides will be received at the mayor's office Tuesdays from 1) to 12. Those who cannot be argued out of their determination to quit the world will receive a certificate that they have been labored with, but in vain. Perhaps the mayor may tender them the free use of a municipally owned pistol. AMUSEMENTS Keylor Grand. Tonight "Escaped From Sing Sing," an excellent comedy drama, full of intense human interect and stirring scenes, will be the attraction offered by Ed Redmond and company. This delightful play has been seen before, and so well was it liked that it will be repeated, much to the sat isfaction of the local theater goer. In "Jerry Weston" Mr. Redmond presents a character that gives him the best of opportunities and as the tramp gives the best piece of character acting he has done. All of the people have good parts and a splendid entertainment is assured.

Roselle Knott. Roselle Knott, who appears as "Mray Tudor" in Hester's dramatiz ation of Major's novel, "When Knighthood Was in Flower" has probably been more successful in portraying the part than any other actress who has ever undertaken t, not even excepting Julia Mar !owe. Even the best of production? Me at times forced to play to a com paratively small house, but in her triumphal tour in the same piece two reasons ago Miss Knott was greeted it each performance with a packed theater and in the great majority of ities the S. R. O. sign was most onspicuously displayed. Lauder, the Pianist. W. Waugh Lauder, the pianist, arrived yesterday from Cheney, where he .has been giving a series of recitals. The program at the col lege chapel this morning at 11 o'clock consisted of the music of the con certo and at 4 o'clock this afternoon he began an interpretation of the compositions of Liszt.

Brandon, who ar rived in the city Monday evening to inspect th e progress of the construc- THE EVENING STATESMAN FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 1905. tion work on this end of the Lew iston-Riparia line has awardea to Miles Case and L». A. Dixon of Ba ker City a sub-contract on rock work at Granite Point, says the Lewiston Tribune. At that point an immense granite reef crowds to the river -line, and the cut embraced in the sub contract is 50 feet deep at points. Messrs. Case and Nixon are experi enced rock men and they will in stall machine drills. Mr. Brandon has just put in an other camp for Erickson & Peterson. The camp is located just above Al mota and will handle rock work. Mr. Brandon is also now preparing to ship lumber to Pennawawa, where a larger amount of scraper work can be done. With the exception of some track and cars for use in connection with the steam shovel work Erick son & Peterson now have all neces sary construction equipment either on the ground or at Riparia, and with each day the scope of the construc tion operations is ebing extended. The condition suggests the energy the firm has exercised in advancing the work despite the embarrassment met, when for weeks there was no boat service on the river.

Clarence Murphy Goes Free—Harry Love May Hang. j JACKSOX, Cal., Nov. 17.—Clarence Murphy was last night acquitted of the murder of Mrs. Phoebe Williams at Lacana Plana on the 11th of last June. The jury was out two hours. Murphy was rearrested on the charge of the murder of Chester Maker, grand son of Mrs. "Williams.

Harry Love, who was arrested for the murder, made a confession that he and Murphy killed Mrs. Williams and Chester Maker, but he claimed that Murphy did the killing while he looked on. Love was sentenced to life imprison ment on the charge of the murder of Mrs. Williams. It was proven that Murphy was at his home at the time the murders were committed and that Love's confession was false. Love will now be tried for the murder of Chester Maker. The crime was the most fiendish in the history of this part of the state. WOULD MAKE IDEAL PARK COMMITTEE FAVORABLY IM PRESSED WITH SITE AT HEAD OF BOYER AVENUE. Are of the Opinion the Tract Could be Put in Shape By Early Summer. Yesterday afternoon Professor Louis F. Anderson , Eugene Lorton and P. C. Holland, who were ap pointed by President Catron of the Commercial club to investigate the practicability of establishing a city park at the head of Boyer avenue, went over the ground and made a careful investigation of the plat and the surroundings. They were highly impressed with the beauty of the place and are unanimous in the con clusion that the ground could be utilized for park purposes to a great advantage. From their obser vations they are of the opinion that by the use of a little money, judi ciously expended, it could be made into an ideal park by early sum mer next year. The land is already accessible to several small spring branches and Mill creek, from which an ample sup ply of water could be obtained for irrigation purposes. It is well shaded by immense trees and about all the work necessary to put it in shape would be the laying out of roadways and walks. Eugene Lennon, who owns a tract of land adjacent on the south, has of fered to donate some of his land if the park is established, and it has beep suggested that if it is desired to enlarge the park additional land could be acquired on the east from the Ennis annex. The matter Is to be taken up again by the Commer cial club in a few days and it is pro posed to bring the matter to the attention of the council and en deavor to induce that body to take steps to establish the park at this place by next summer. This movement was not started with any intention of interfering with the work being done by Park Commissioner McLean on the park site nn Alder street, where 40 acres has been set aside by the city for that purpose. The commissioner has done much work on the place and his untiling efforts are appreciated by the public. It is pointed out. however, that it will be several years before the Alder street tract will be in shape for a park, and the Rover avenue park is desired for im mediate use. BLOW AT GERMANY. New Anglo-Russian Agreement Gives Constantinople to the Bear. LONDON, Nov. 17.—Tomorrow's Observer will make public an ex clusive forecast of the basis of the Anglo-Russian entente which Great Britain is believed to be planning. It will attempt to show how at the same lime Britain is aiming a deliberate and deadly blow at Germany. The Observer will say that Britain will offer Russia the Bagdad railway and will even lend financial help for its completion. This will not only afford Russia its long-cherished out let to the Persian gulf, but will assure Russia's economic predominance in Asia Minor, smashing German ascend ency in that region. Britain will not permit fortifications on the Persian gulf, but will subject the agreement to other powers for assent. By handing over Constantinople to Russia Britain will finally announce its approval of a Pan-Slavist confed eration in the Balkans under Russian wardership. Britain's remuneration for these vi tal concessions will be the reunueia tion by Russia of all its designs in Afghanistan, Tibet, India and Central Asia in general.

Judge Brents Orders Him Confined in Jail Under Sentence of Two Weeks Ago. "Billy" Noble, who gave Sheriff Painter and Deputy Haviland such a hard fight yesterday when they ar rested him on a warrant sworn out in Judge ■ Huffman's court, was or dered committed to the county jail for six months by Judge Brents last night to serve the sentence imposed on him by the court two weeks ago following a conviction on a charge of simple assault, but which was sus pended during Noble's good behavior. Judge Brents decided when he heard of Noble's resistance when placed un der arrest that he had forfeited all rights to clemency and the commit ment was speedily prepared and de livered to Sheriff Painter by Clerk Hill on orders from Julge Brents. Noble presents a battered up appear ance after yesterday's fight in the county jail in which it took four of ficers to subdue and lock him up. He demanded an immediate trial, but as no attention was paid to him he began begging for a physician to attend to his wounds. During the scuffle Noble was cut about the head somewhat, but his injuries did not prevent him from standing at the jail door and cursing the officers when ever they came within range. WHITMAN HAS ORCHESTRA Will Hold Regular Rehearsals Satur day Nights. The Whitman orchestra will meet every Saturday evening hereafter for practice, under the charge of Pro fessor Edgar S. Fischer, the director. The number of musicians who have joined the orchestra from outside of the college is very encouraging to those who have the matter in charge. The organization already numbers 15 pieces and there are several more who have announced their intention of joining. The instruments of the new orchestra up to date are as follows: Seven violins, base viol, viola, cello, flute, clarionet, trombone, two cornets with prospects of base viol, viola and to be added. / The organization when it gets working order will furnish ;nuM C all sorts of college functions. Xh e need of an orchestra has been so W y felt for some time and the movesZ is very popular among musical stu. dc nts. The Play Was N 0 Good. At least, the villain pursued "W the wrong way to suit him. After the first act he was in a had way. He felt tnat he needed some recreation aftJt a hard day at business, but tar py was such that it was making matters worse instead of better. Hut a hap. py thought struck him. He wum seek a game of billiards. A little time at this amusement would no doubt set him to rights again. Leaving the theatre he visits Lutcher's where he soon got into an interesting game. Billiards proved just the recreation he was after and he hi joyed his ••evening" immensely. If you ever find yourself in the same boat as this man, visit Lutcher's torn fortable and pleasant billiard parlors. ARMORY HALL Hard Times Mask given by the Country Club Nov. 22, '05.
