Actress Wins Suit for One-Fifth In come From London Theater. NEW YORK, Jan. 19.—Ada Rehan, the actress, will receive, by the de cision of a referee, one-fifth of the in come from Daly's theater in London. The contest just settled was not over the whole estate, in which, by will, she had one-fifth interest. According to her counsel, William A. Jenner, the amount which Miss Rehan will receive is a considerable one, up in the thou sands. Augustin Daly bequeathed to her one-fifth of his estate. Joseph Daly the executor, thought she should re ceive no share of the theater until it should be sold, but as it is under a long lease, Miss Rehan's attorney in sisted she should receive one-fifth of the income from the theater. The ref eree, Robert Deyo of this city, has de cided that one-fifth of the income shall go to this legatee. This decision is retroactive and will give Miss Rehan a claim on all earnings since filing of the will. - Miss Rehan has already re ceived one-fifth of the rest of the Daly estate. LACK UNIFORMS FOR MARINES CLOTHING FUND IS SHORT AND CLOTH HAS ADVANCED IN PRICE. WASHINGTON, D. C, Jan. 19.—The officers who have charge of the pur chase of clothing and material for the marine corps have found that they are short of funds by something like $100,- 000 to meet the contracts which must be made in the purchase of materials used in the manufacture of uniforms. When the estimates were prepared some months ago the authorities as certained the current market prices for wool, cotton, leather and rubber. Since then the prices of such supplies have considerably advanced. In the case of kersey, out of which trousers and over, coats are made, the advance was six ty per cent or an increase in the quan tity needed of nearly $50,000. Jacket flannel advanced 25 per cent and also blankets 18 per cent. The average ad vance in prices for these and other ma terials was 45 per cent.

PRESENT LAW BRANDED AS VICIOUS Western Men Want Good Substitute Enacted for the Present One On the Statute Books. Some time during the present session of congress the timber and stone act is likely to be repealed, and in Us place a law will be written on the statute books which will authorize the sale of public timber at something like its real value, is the report that comes from Washington City. But before any legislation of this character is enacted the public land committees of the senate and the house will give very thorough consideration to the various pending bills, and some practical effective solution of the pres ent timber land evil is expected to re sult. That the timber and stone act in its present form is vicious is generally ad mitted. It is generally acknowledged that no just law can be enforced which requires the same price for the valu able timber lands of Washington as for the very cheap timber lands of the Rocky mountain states. That is what the timber and stone act does. Western Men Want Substitutes. While there is a very general senti ment in favor of the repeal of this law, western men are not willing to merely wipe the objectionable law off the stat ute books, they insist upon some sub stitute which will not only permit the use of mature timber, but which will also provide a material revenue to compensate for the loss of receipts due to the repeal of the timber and stone act. This law is the principal source of revenue with which to build the government irrigation works, and to repeal it without submitting some other means of getting revenue from the public timber would be to material ly hamper the construction of govern ment irrigation projects. What Congress May Do. The discussion of this problem has not gone far enough to justify a pre diction as to the form of bill that will be reported, but in a general way it seems probable that congress, after re pealing the timber and stone act, will authorize the sale of public timber at something like its real value; that is to say, some scheme will be devised for appraising the public timber, and per mitting its sale at not less than its ap praised value. Even in those states where the timber is of poor quality the government will derive as much recvnue from its timber lands as it does under the present law, while in Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Cali fornia the prices will range w r ay above the price required under the exist ing law. There is a demand from some quar ters for a law which will authorize merely the sale of the public timber, the title to public timber lands to re main with the government. The advo. ! cates of this plan point out that by | holding the title to the land in the gov- I ernment it will be comparatively easy : to perpetuate the forests, and to regu late the cutting so that none but ma ; ture timber w-ill be removed. By per j petuating the forests the government i will have a continual source of reve j nue, whereas if the title to the timber land passes to lumbermen there is lit tle chance of reforestration, and no hope whatever of deriving revenue for I the government once the land is sold. To Swell Reclamation Fund. Under existing law the government I is selling mature timber from its for \ est reserves, but the moneys derived from such sales do not find their way into the reclamation fund. Attention of western senators and representa tives has been called to this fact, and it is not unlikely that a bill will be pressed this session requiring that such revenues, like the revenues from the .sale of public lands, shall be turned into the reclamation fund, and not go into the federal treasury. Strictly speaking, this money ought to go to the reclamation fund, since it is really a part of the public land receipts, and those senators and congressmen who have been handicapped because of a shortage of money for irriga'ion work will probably favor a bill which turns this enormous revenue into the nation, al reclamation fund. I Republican Editors of Missouri. ST. JOSEPH, Mo., Jan. 19.—The re publcan Editorial association of Mis souri met here today for its annual convention. The attendance Is un- usually large this year.

M. Burnside of Poplar Bluff, C. M. Harrison, of Galla tin; Phil S. Griffith, of Greenfield, B. F. Guthrie, of Milan; P. E. Burton of Joplin; W. J. Howell of Carthage and several others. METZGER HEIRS WANTED. Holland Government Said to Have Vast Wealth to Give Away. CEDAR RAPIDS, lowa, Jan. 19.— Robert M. Metzger, engaged in the ci gar business in this city, has received notice that the Holland government de sires to find the heirs of Thiebauld Metzger of that country, for the pur pose of distributing $128,000,000 among them. Thiebauld Metzger, in the seven teenth century, was made governor of Breda, and became a money lender. He loaned 3,000,000 francs to the gov ernment and when he died in 1691, the government took his estate, valued at 140/000,000 francs, it being stipulated in the will that it should be returned to the heirs after 100 years. It has never been returned, but the' govern ment is said to have recognized the justice of the claim and waits proof of the identity of the heirs. HAVE HOME FOR GOVERNESSES MOVEMENT BEEN STARTED IN NEW YORK WITH THAT OBJECT IN VIEW. NEW YORK, Jan. 19. —An organiza tion in which a large number of prom inent society women are interested, has been formed for the purpose of provid ing help and assistance for many ot the educated foreign women mostly teachers and governesses, who are con stantly coming to this country to gain a livelihood. Many of these women fail to succeed in their vocation and many of them are suffering from want and are compelled to seek the assistance of the consular representatives of their respective countries. Particularly the German consul has taken great interest, in the plan, as there is comparatively a greater number of German governes ses than of any other nationality. Among other prominent society women, who took great interest in the matter are Mrs. Isaac Guggenheimer and Mrs. Ludwig Sutro. The real originator of the matter however, was a German governess, whose experience during the twenty years of self-support in Ameri ca has taught her many things about the hardships which women of her class have to endure. The organization proposes to begin on a small scale. A flat will be rented and furnished, which will serve as a social center for those who often know absolutely no one in the city and are helpless and without means. It is hoped that in the course of time the scope of the organization can be en larged and a regular club house for governesses and teachers erected. HAVE YOU WEAK LUN6S? Do You Fear Consumption? When we take into consideration the fact that one out of every seven in this climate dies of consumption, is it any wonder that it is feared by the people of Walla Walla who have weak lungs and chronic colds and coughs? A famous London physician has for years urged his patients, when the slightest tendency to consumption ap peared, to take the best cod liver oil preparation they could find, and phy sicians everywhere have recognized that the cod's liver contains curative values for coughs, colds, bronchitis, consumption and all wasting diseases unequalled in medicine, but, unfor tunately, few could take and derive any benefit from old-fashioned cod liver oil and emulsions on account of the indi gestible grease which they contain. The Green & Jackson Drug Co., says, "We want every person in Walla Walla to know the value of our new cod liver preparation, Vinol. It actually con tains in a concentrated form all of the strengthening body-building elements of cod liver oil actually taken from fresh cods' livers, without a drop of oil or grease to upset the stomach and re tard its work. Therefore, where old-fashioned cod liver oil or emulsions would do good, Vinol will do far more good. We guarantee Vinol will improve the appetite, strengthen digestion, make rich, red blood, create strength, cure chronic coughs and colds and strength en weak lungs. If Vinol fails to give satisfaction, we return your money without question."—Green & Jackson Drug Company.
