something to be able to walk the
streets with your pockets empty and
yet able to pay your bills as though
your pockets were bulging with gold.
The safest, simplest and most sys

checks. No one disputes the endorse

cool judgment, manly independence
and a bank account are all important.

SHARES IN DALY ESTATE.
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
LACK UNIFORMS FOR MARINES
CLOTHING FUND IS SHORT AND
CLOTH HAS ADVANCED IN
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.
IN HONOR ON LEHIGH PRESIDENT
ALUMNI AND FORMER STUDENTS
WILL GIVE DINNER TO DR.
H. S. DRINKER.
NEW YORK, Jan. 19.—The alumni
and former students of Lehigh univer
sity in and about New York will give
a dinner in honor of Dr. Henry S.
Drinker, the new president of the uni
versity at the Hotel Astor this even
ing. Dr. Drinker is the first alumnus
of Lehigh to fill the position of pres
dent of that institution, which is not
yet forty years old. This fact, to
gether with the recent election of a
number of alumni to positions on the
board of trustees of the university
has created a great wave of interest
among the alumni and it is expected
that there will be a large attendance
at the banquet this evening. Dr.
Drinker has been practicaHy a resi
dent of New York for several years
prior to his recent election to the pres
idency of Lehigh, having been the gen
eral solicitor of the Lehigh valley rail
road with offices in this city.

TO REPEAL THE TIMBER ACT
Public Timber Land fo Be Sold at
Its Real Value.
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
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
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
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.
Republican Editors of Missouri.
ST. JOSEPH, Mo., Jan. 19.—The re

usually large this year. The meeting

licans have made great preparations
for the entertainment of the visiting

of this city. Among the prominent

the banquet will be D. M. Burnside of

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
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
