SENATORS AND CONGRESSMAN BUSY Army Maneuvers If Held This Year Will Be of Greater Magnitude Than Ever. ATLANTA, Ga. Feb. 9.—The people of Georgia are very anxious that their state be chosen as the battleground for the mimic battles of the army maneuv ers to be held this year. The last army maneuvers on a large scale were held in Virginia in 1904. They surpassed in magnitude any army maneuvers ever held in this country, and there were about thirty thousand troops en gaged in the various operations. It is believed that the maneuvers this year, if they are held at all, will be on a larger scale even than those held in Virginia. For that reason the people of Georgia are working with great en ergy, to have their state selected a« the battle ground. It is still doubtful whether congress will make an appropriation for holding such maneuvers, but to be prepared for any emergency, the Georgia con gressmen have been urged and peti tion to use their utmost efforts to have the maneuvers held in this state, and should Georgia be selected for that purpose, it would mean a great deal to the state. It would attract a large number of people to the state, who are anxious to get a glimpse of the war like operations. The war department always invites the governors of the adjacent states to these maneuvers and requests them to send troops to parti cipate in them, the only condition being that the states assume all expense at. tached to the movement and mainten ance of their troops. The pressure brought to bear upon the war depart ment by congressmen and senators usually decides the state where the maneuvers will be held and as the western states have had several 'n former year years, it is believed that Georgia stands a good show to be se lected if any maneuvers are held. These maneuvers are always held 1.1 the fall, after the crops have been har vested, in order to cause as little lojs as possible to the farmers. The gov ernment invariably pays for actual damage done. RAILROAD HELD UP BY CONSTABLE ENTIRE FOLICE FORCE, ONE MAN, BLOCKS THE MICHIGAN CENTRAL. HAMMOND, Ind., Feb. 9.—The Michigan Central railway and the hamlet of Lake Station, a few east of Hammond, are at sword's points. Fewer than 100 souls live in the village and because the trains run through the place too fast Constable John Hacker, who is in himself the entire police and detective force, has been forcing single- handed all trains blocked in the village to cut the trains at crossings regardless of their im portance. Hacker has been busy doing j this for several days, until the entire j law department of the railroad com-1 pany has been called upon for a solu- j tion. Yesterday Conductor George Wear, with a westbound freig.it stopped his train on the main street crossing and refused to cut it. The doughty minion of the law jerked him off the caboose and arrested him. Wear notified the train master at Michigan City, and that official was compelled to send a special train on to Lake Station, bringing another con ductor to take Wear's train to its des tination. Wear was hauled overland to Squire Matthews' court, in Hobart, and fined. The Michigan Central offi cials are at a loss to know how they have incurred the enmity of the Lake constabulary and may wipe the village off their map. Hacker is a decider! hero with the villagers and a new tin star will be given him. Panama Trade For New Orleans. NEW ORLEANS. Feb. 9.—As the re sult of constant complaint that the merchants of New York had the ad vantage in selling goods, the Panama Canal Commission has been appointed the purchasing agent of the Panama Railroad Company, and for the next year it will buy just one half of all the supplies needed in New York, the other half in New Orleans. Heretofore all these supplies were purchased n New York. At the end of the year the purchasers will determine which city offers the better advantages and is the better to make purchases in. The local merchants will make energetic efforts to hold the Panama trade, if it can be done. Opening Art Exhibition. ERIE, Pa., Feb. 9.—The annual Art Exhibition under the auspices of the Erie Art Club will open this evening with a pTivate view of the display in the art gallery of the public library The exhibition this year is confined to water colors and minatures, but to make up for the lack of oil paintings and larger works the best artists ;f the country are represented in the ex hibition by some of their choicest work. GRAFT EVERYWHERE IN MONTANA STATE EXAMINER COLLINS CALLS ATTENTION TO NEED OF SEVERAL CHANGES. HELENA, Mont., Feb. 9. —State Ex aminer Timothy E. Collins, in an in terview today, takes a decided stand in respect to certain conditions in this state, and makes recommendations with a view to remedying the situation. "Complete reports received by this office show that in not a few counties of the state sheriffs are receiving greater salaries than the chief execu tive," said Mr. Collins. "This graft should cease. Mining companies pay taxes upon their net proceeds. I rec ommend that a system of bookkeep ing be inaugurated whereby these pro ceeds may be definitely determined. Transportation and express companies pay taxes on their gross earnings. The books of these companies, as well as mining companies, should be subject, to inspection by the examiner's de partment. The state would lose noth ing by this. Private banks should also be placed under the supervision of this department. Publicity is th life of modern business and begets confidence." From figures submitted by Ex aminer Collins, it is learned that the twenty-nine national banks in Mon tana have assets of $30,000,000; those of the thirty-four state banks aggre gate $20,000,000 and those of the thir ty-three private banks total $10,000,000, a grand total of $60,000,000. Mr. Collins also stated that the av erage cost to each man, woman and child in the state, for the support of state and county governments last year, amounted to $21.26, which he re gards so far too great, and says that steps should be taken to reduce ex penses and graft all along the line. STUDENT BLOWS OUT THE GAS. Son of Deer Lodge Ranchman Found Dead in Bed. BUTTE, Mont., Feb. 9.—Oscar Nor mandin, 22 years of age, a student at the Butte business college and a so.i of a wealthy ranchman near Deer Lodge, was found dead in bed this morning, in a Park street hotel. Death was due to asphyxiation. Both gts jets in his room were turned on to the : .r full extent. The cirmumstances surrounding the young man's death point to it the result. It is believed he did not understand the use of the gas fixtures. Coroner Egan made an investigation and gave the opinion that the young man had either blown out the gas or turned on the jets after putting out the lights, either through ignorance or accident. There were no letters or any indications pointing to suicide. WARNING TO PUBLIC.

THE EVENING STATESMAN, WALLA WALLA, WASHINGTON. FOR THE MILAN EXPOSITION New York Manufacturers Are Getting Exhibits Ready IT WILL PROBABLY BE ELABORATE All Parts of United States Were Well Represented at Italy's Fair This Year. NEW YORK, Feb. 9.—The New York manufacturers are hastening the work of preparing the exhibits which they intend to send to the international ex hibition which will be held in Milan, Italy, this year. For months exhibits o have been solicited and collected and it is believed that the New York exhibit will be quite creditable. From other parts of the country. It is reported that not much activity Is shown by the manufacturers to bring together ex hibits which will be a credit to their respective states or sections. It is said that the management of the Milan exposition did not advertise the com ing event in this country sufficiently to attract the attention of the manufact urers. On the other hand it is asserted by the representatives of the Italian government that announcements and strong appeals had been sent to the manufacturers all over the United States, but they did not seem to exert Mr. C. G. Faruffini, of the interna tional trade agency, who has been very active in soliciting exhibits from large manufacturing concerns in this coun try, says, that Germany has shown more interest in the coming exposition and has taken more space at the ex position than any other country. Ac cording to Mr. Faruffini the Italian ex hibit will be a revelation to the rest of the world. He says that during tho last few years Italy has made wonder ful progress in the development of its industrial and economical resources and the government has taken care to give to the world a clear understand ing of the remarkable progress of Italy in every branch of art and industry. WITNESS AGAINST PATRICK MISSING CHARLES JONES, ONE OF THE PRINCIPAL WITNESSES, HAS DISAPPEARED. NEW YORK, Feb. 9.—Charles F. Jones, valet for William K. Rice, whose confession was the real evidence upon which Albert T. Patrick was convicted of murder, has disappeared. New affi davits from Texas made by friends of Jones, accuse him of perjury. With- out Jones the district attorney's office is powerless to combat Patrick's effort for a new trial. It is admitted if Jones cannot be found there is no way to offset the affidavits in behalf of Patrick for a new trial, and that there can be no prosecution of Patrick. From Texas comes a report that Jones left his home several weeks ago, aft?r he had been accused of a serious of fense. The report from Houston is that Jones took to the woods and is STRANG E"~A D VIC £! Dr. G. G. Green gives alert personal attention to his great humanitarian contract.

Railroad Will Produce Its Own Timber for Ties and Lumber. OTTAWA, Ont., Feb. 9.—The Cana dian Pacific has decided to plant large quantities of young trees at various points along its prairie lines so as to be able, in future, to supply its own ties and fenceposts. The company fully appreciates the fact that the da" 1 will come when the trees 'and lumber will reach high prices, so it is now preparing to meet the emergency by establishing and maintaining tree plantations in the west, and thus have in due time a good supply of its own to draw from when needed. The wood best adapted for railway ties is the birch. This grows rapidly on the western prairies. As the grow to a large size and begin to crowd one another, they will be thinned out for fenceposts. He Made Sure. A story is told of the Sudan rail way which shows patient literalness. To an official there came the telegram from an outlying: station: "Station master has died. ShalJ I bury him?" The reply was sent: "Yes; bury sta tion master, but please make sure he Is really dead before you do so." In due time back came the message: "Have buried station master. Made 6ure he was dead by hitting him twice on the head with •* fish plate." There was perfect assurance that there had been no premature burial. A Man of Nerve. He—l called to see you last evening.

It Worked Both Waya In Behalf o& the CoiiKreasmsn. Some years ago there came to Wash ington a representative in congress from lowa who was an ardent cham pion of the cause of prohibition. One day a friend from home dropped In to see the congressman. During the course of his stay he had occasion to use his poeketknife, which the repre sentative much admired. This knife had in it a hook, "designed," so the friend said, "to remove stones that might become fastened in a horse's hoof on a rocky road." Finally, seeing the intense admiration of the congress man for the knife, the friend gave it to him. When the statesman had reached home and had shown the gift to his wife she laughed. "John." said she, "any man who has served three terms in the state senate, been lieutenant governor and had two terms in congress must be a pretty good man if he doesn't know a cham pagne opener from a hoof cleaner." Somehow the story got out and was copied by nearly every newspaper in lowa. One day the congressman met the newspaper man whom he under stood to be the author of the first squib !u the matter. "You did me a great service," smil ingly said the representative to the correspondent. "All the prohibitionists are taking my wife's view of my ig noranee. and all the 'antis' are insist ing that I'm a devil of a good fellow for imposing so successfully on my wife. It works in my behalf which ever way you take it." — Saturday Evening Post. Man and His Valet. "I never saw a man so entirely de pendent on his valet." "Quite helpless without him, eh?"
