WN. DOUGHERTY STOLE MONEY PEORIA SCHOOL MAN SHOWN BY INVESTIGATION TO BE A PRINCE OF SWINDLERS. Everett Auditing Committee Will Pre sent Scathing Report Censuring the School Board. CHICAGO, Jan. 12—Startling dis closures will be made in a report on the defalcation of former Superin tendent of Schools Newton C. Dough erty, which will be presented to the Peoria school board tonight. The school man will be shown to have been one of the greatest swindlers the world has ever known. The report, which is being prepared by the Everett Audit company, embraces the records of the last seven years, and will show total shortage of more than $600,000 in that time. This is more than the wildest conjecture previously had made the steal for the whole twenty-five years of Dougherty's trusteeship. The auditors still are at work on the books and from a preliminary sur vey of the whole task, it is shown that the shortage for eighteen years will exceed $1,000,000. Bank Responsible. It has been disclosed by members of the investigating committee that not only will the report of the audit com mittee scathingly censure the mem bers of the present and the past school boards for their neglect of duty, but will declare boldly that the liquidated Peoria National bank is responsible for the loss to the school fund. This charge against the bank is based upon the fact that the pecula tions were carried out by Dougherty by means of forged and fictitious school scrip, which was cashed by the bank of which Dougherty was pres ident. The scrip was cashed without proper indorsement. The report will assert the criminal liability of the bank officials. News of this trend of the investiga tion has produced consternation in Peoria financial circles. Dividends Stopped. When the auditors first discovered conclusive proof of the bank's respon sibility, court action was taken imme diately to stop the payment of further dividends by the receiver. The order was not executed, however, until 30 per cent of the claims had been paid. If it is finally established that the bank owes the school board the amount of the defalcation these dividends will have to be withdrawn and the conse quence will be that the bank's affairs will be tied up in the courts for sev eral years. The report, which is heing rapidly completed,, will be read in the open meeting of the school board. One of the conclusions which will be drawn by the author is that, in all the twen ty-five years of Dougherty's official connection with the public schools of Peoria, the accounts of the school board never received proper auditing In this respect the members of the board in past years and the members of the finance committee will he charged with neglect of their public trust. Got $50,000 a Year. One of the most interesting features of the report is an analysis which will show the magnitude of Dougherty's operations. In none of the last seven years, it is said, did he steal less than $50,000, and in the last three years he got away with $300,000. ' Twenty-seventh Child.

NEW YORK, Jan. 12. —General Theodore Bingham, police commission er, surprised police headquarters this morning by taking a quiet stroll about the building instead of going direct to his office. He soon met Policeman Matthew McCoy, who gave the com missioner the customary salute in the department, a sort of nondescript any. old-thing. The general almost snorted at the burlesque salute and stopped McCoy. "I want you to learn the army sa lute," said the general. "Nothing like that here." The general then Illustrated the proper salute and McCoy followed his example and saluted properly. During his stroll the commissioner told sev eral other policemen the same thing and made it plain that the army salute must be used hereafter in the depart ment. THE SENATORIAL PRIMARIES TENNESSEE VOTERS ARE EX PRESING PREFERENCE TODAY. HENDERSON, Tenn., Jan. 12.—The senatorial primaries are held today in the twenty-fifth senatorial district, which comprises the counties Madison, Chester and Henderson. The situation is rather interesting in this district. Seceral prominent democrats have been suggested to oppose the nomina tion of Hon. T. W. Pope of Madison county. Pope represented this district in the last legislature and the temper ance element was not pleased with his record and is, therefore, strongly op posed to his return to the senate. Among the prominent democrats men tioned to contest his nomination is Hon. J. D. Johnson who made a bril liant record for himself in favor of the extension of the Adams law. The result of the primaries is awaited with considerable interest. A strong vote is expected. DEVELOPMENT OF OREGON PORTLAND BUSINESS MEN AR RANGE EXCURSION THROUGH CALIFORNIA. PORTLAND, Ore., Jan. 12. —A joint meeting of the Oregon Press associa tion and the Oregon Development league is held here today, which will so to speak, form the prelude to the commercial excursion to California to be undertaken under the auspices ot the Oregon Development league. The excursion will start from here in a special train tomorrow. At the meeting, which convened here today, various matters pertaining to the com mercial, industrial and intellectual de velopment of the state of Oregon will be discussed. The good roads question, various agricultural and horticultural questions, traffic matters and other important subjects will come up for consideration and plans will be con sidered to effectively boom the vari ous interests of this state. The at tendance is very large and among those present are many prominent nemspapermen from all parts of the state, as well as a large number of prominent merchants and manufac turer. Cincinnati's Lid Is On. CINCINNATI, Jan. 12.—For the first time in twenty years the lid is on here. Mayor Demsey. following a communi cation from the Ministerial Alliance law enforcement committee, has or dered Chief of Police Milliken to close every saloon at midnight, and stop gambling using every police power, smashing in the doors with axes if necessary. The order is an absolute one, and all the prominent down-town saloons have agreed to obey it. The last drink is to be sold at ten minutes before midnight and the bartenders are to be out at the stroke of 12, with the doors locked and blinds up. Dem sey has made no order regarding Sunday closing, but it is generally thought that Governor Pattison will >rder it. GASOLINE WOOD SAW. PHONE 502. THE EVENING STATESMAN, WALLA WALLA, WASHINGTON. READY TO LOSE POPOLARITY PRESIDENT KNOWS THE DANGER OF SITUATION BUT AC CEPTS THE CHALLENGE. Dolliver-Hepburn Bill Is Now Viewed as Measure Acceptable to the Administration. WASHINGTON, D. C, Jan. 12.— President Roosevelt has expressed a willingness to be sacrificed personally, provided he can secure the enactment of a rate bill, moderate in character, which will make an important advance toward control over the carrying com panies, now the greatest corporate power this country ever has known. He realizes the danger to himself that the situation presents, and yet, he accepts the challenge manfully, and, if there should be need for it, will sur render his immense popularity in order to accomplish the desired result. The time has come when, as he says in his last message, the government must assert its rights over the rail roads in the matter of controlling rates. This power is negatively as serted in the present interstate com merce law, but that is not sufficient. The time has now come when the government must decide whether it, or private interests, are to control the great avenues of transportation, and no negative assertion of the federal right is sufficient to hold the rail ways in check. There must be affirm ative assertion. Bill Will be Epochal. This affirmative assertion the bill, which will be known as the admin istration bill, will make. It will be epochal in character, and mark the longest stride forward yet taken by the government in the interest of the whole people in rate matters. The railways resent this invasion of their long unquestioned privilege. It means a limitation of their powers, possibly a reduction of their revenues, certainly a reduction of their abso lute power for harm. The presence of such a law on the statute books would be sufficient to earn for the president the hostility of nearly every railway man of influence in the coun try. The passage of that bill will at once strike from the list of las sup porters nearly every man who is in terested in railway management or railway earnings, and there are enough of such men to affect public sentiment powerfully. While the president is thus arraying the railway power against himself, he is preparing, by the moderation which he is exhibiting, so far as other feat ures of the railway bill are concerned, to invite the open and bitter opposi tion of a very large class of the peo ple generally, of the shipping public, who, almost without exception, outside the great cities, are radical in their demands and will not be satisfied with any moderate law. New Town of Roosevelt. ARLINGTON", Or., Jan. 12—A new town opposite Arlington on the north bank railroad has sprung up. T. B Montgomery has sold many lots in the townsite. There is one saloon, for which Peter Johnson paid $1000 license to Klickitat county; a general mer chandise and drug store and postoffice. The town will be called Roosevelt. A GOOD NIGHT'S RES!

The Physical Exercise Fad. So many of our athletic games and the incentive to pursue them sedulous ly are imported from England that It is somewhat unusual to have the notion that regular health exercise is neces sary discredited on the other side of the water. A in the Loudou Mail, who has had athletic training and is a worker, takes issue with those ex perts who insist that regular exercise and practice are essential to playing a good game .or to the maintenance of health. He says that it is possible to be fit for a game—and for another game aftet it—on Saturday afternoon or any other time without putting in several hours of exercise to get In trim and also to keep up unceasingly the daily stint of work. Of course it all ; depends upon the man or the woman ' whether daily exercise is necessary. : To quote: If the individual is below the normal in : certain respects, then appropriate exer ; cises will be a help. If the individual is ! beyond the normal In certain respects— ' say with a cast Iron biceps and chest of Imposing size—even then appropriate ex ercises may be a help; for instance, to bring the litheness, the quickness and the repose up to the normal. But if the indi vidual is near normal, then I do not be ; lieve In the indiscriminate advice to grind j for some half hour every day. I believe that there may be a better way—a pleas i anter and cheaper and more sensible way. The writer began his experiments as a well trained athlete. He left off all exercise except that entailed by his daily routine of working, dressing, walking to his business place, etc., and he found that he could play his game as well as ever and stay at it as long, that he could work twelve or thirteen hours a day without any games, with out any developers or dumbbells and without any loss of physical fitness for games or work. Moreover, he ate and drank whatever he felt inclined to and always had a good appetite. It is presumptuous for one individual to lay down health rules for all—how often to bathe, how much water to drink, how to breathe, and so on—as this writer declares. Each one must take his own road to reach a nor mal condition in respect of his organs, his nerves and muscles. When that state is reached it is easy to test the diet and the amount of exercise needed to maintain fitness for the usual strain. In the beginning or until normal health is established regular physical drill and practice may be necessary—that is, simply training for health, Just as diet ing or medication may be used to build up powers which are wanting. Beyond that persistence in practice may not alone cause a waste of time, but actual ly prove harmful by using up energy or by overdeveloping powers that can not be given healthy activity.
