HIS BEEN I DEALER FOR It YEMS NEVER RAISED A HUMAN BEING FROM DEAD, BUT HAS A CHICKEN. There lives a man in Portland, Ore., who professes to have power to per- form any biblical miracle, with three exceptions. He says he cannot walk upon the water, feed a multitude with five loaves and fishes, or cleanse lep eijs. He declares he can raise the dead, though he has never experiment ed with a human corpse. But he re lates that he bade a dead chicken in Front street to arise and walk, an I forthwith the feathered Lazarus flop ped its wings and proceeded on its way rejoicing. The Portland expounder of miracles is B. P. Newman, who styles himself "healer," and lives in room 12 in the Glisan block, on Ash street, betwepri First and Second streets. For eighteen years he has lived and labored in Port land and is known by hundreds. He le clares that his patients and the bene ficiaries of his wonderful powers are legion, and that some of Portland's most prominent citizens are on the list. But, -strange to relate, the di vine healer, to whom reputable men and women attribute remarkable pow ers, is modest and free of desire for sordid gain. In all the eighteen yeats he has practiced what he terms di vine healing, Newman says he has re ceived less than $50 in compensation for his services. He has no price, and those whom he cures or helps are never asked for money. Should they desire, however, they may bestow coin or other gifts upon their healer. Shuns Publicity. In a bare little room, scant of fur niture and with ample evidence of a poverty that frequently accompanies piety, lives the quiet old man who makes such startling claims. Abso lutely devoid of the ostentation of a fakir, shunning publicity, he lives the life of a voluntary hermit, while the noise and bustle of a great city go on about him. In pursuance of the faith which, he claims, has exalted him, he abstains from intercourse with men except where he may touch or benefit them or alleviate their sufferings. He refrains from all mundane things be cause, he says, he is not of this world and has only a spiritual existence. Faith, he says, a simple, unbounded, undoubting faith, has given him the power that he claims for himself. The whole world may possess them, he says, the whole world may be endow ed with powers equal to those of Christ if it will only have faith. Faith, declares the healer, will literally re move mountains, and he feels sure that by faith he may tramp at will upon the swift-flowing Willamette or walk boldly down the Columbia to the sea. However, he has never tried, and will not do so, he says, until so moved by the spirit. And he will never try it if it is merely an idle curiosity that prompts him. Eighteen Years a Healer. For eighteen years Mr. Newman has been a "healer." And for eighteen years he has been a Christian. It was only a brief time after he became a Christian that he became a Miealer,' he says. The healing power came to him through faith and prayer. It was after he had been throuoghly cleanse! of all iniquities, and after six devils had been literally cast from him. He announces that he is prepared and able to cast devils from others, and explains how each unconverted per son will never be free of them until they are cast out. Among other wonderful things that have come to pass in the life of this strange man who talks rationally on all other subjects, and has the pat ronage of rich and prominent citizens of Portland, was a personal interview with the Christ. He declares that the Messiah appeared to him at Ore gon City while he was at work in a mill. He was so overcome by the daz zling brilliancy of the divinity that it was three days before he recovered. When he did finally recover he had been thoroughly cleansed, he sfciys; sight that had been dimmed by age was restored, sordid appetites and de sires had disappeared, and the "heal ing" powers had come. Must Go to Jail. PARIS, March 13—Mr. Elliott F. THE •Villi Ml WT ATM HA V WALLA WALLA, WASMJMCTON. Shepard, grandson of the late W. F. Vanderbilt, was taken to prison toda> to serve a term of three months for having run down a girl with his auto mobile, causing her death. An appeal has been sent to the state department in Washington, D. C., to intervene in behalf of Mr. Shepard, but the state department felt that it had no rmht to interfere in a case of this kind, and let the law take its course. It is hop ed that this case will teach a whole some lesson to American automobilists who are touring in Europe and are greatly feared on account of their recklessness and disregard for the safe ty of the public. Woe I* Fosterburg! ALTON, 111., March 13.—The town of Fosterburg is in darkness because the supply of oil there has given out. All the smoking and chewing tobacco has run out also, and that is giving a good deal more trouble than the lack of oil. There isn't much prospect of a change until the mud dries up or freezes, because the mire in all the roads leading out of Fosterburg is four feet deep and impassable for wagons. Yesterday some men floundered into Alton, chewed tobacco voraciously for a while, then started back for Foster burg. They took a few pounds of to bacco with them. They were dubious as to whether they would be able to walk to Fosterburg carrying even light loads of tobacco. The party didn't bother about oil. AYME PREDICTS SEISMIC HORROR Diplomat Who Went THraugh Martin- ique Disaster Says Another Is Probable. CHICAGO, 111., March 13.—"1 should not be surprised any day to hear :f a great volcanic catastrophe from St. Vincent or Martinique." This state ment was made yesterday by Consul Louis Ayme of Para, Brazil, the first white man to reach the island of Mar tinique after the great eruption of Mount Pelee in 1902. Mr. Ayme ar rived in Chicago yesterday from his consular post of Para, where he has been stationed for two years. "The cables to the eastern coast of South America from the United States were interrupted three weeks ago, and have remained out of commission since, I believe," said Mr. Awme. "The cable service on the western coast has also been interfered with, and it is my belief the world will shortly hear of a great volcanic eruption equaling if not exceeding that of Mount Pelee in 1902. Pelee has been continually active ever since I was there in 1902. "When I passed the island of t. Vincent on January 9 last, La S ou " friere was quiet, but since hat time reports have come that it is in erup tion. <'I believe some enormous seismic disturbance has taken place because of the interruption of the cable service.'

FJIIL TO FOUND NEW PARTY No Two Reform Plans Suggested Are Alike. WIS WISE SCOPE OF OPIIIOI MILLIONAIRES AND REFORMERS WITHOUT A CENT MEET AND FALL OUT. NEW YORK, March 13. —The three- day congress of political reformers at the country residence of J. G. Phelps Stokes at Noroton Point, Conn., broke up a failure in its intended purpose, The primary object, to hit upon some way to "deliver the masses from the grasp of political vultures," fell through because there were too many divergent ideas as to how things ought to be worked. Those responsible for the confer ence, of whom Mr. Stokes was one of the most conservative, had an inkling before the reformers came together that a new party could be put in the field that would come closer to plain people. It was agreed that the republican and democratic parties were steeped in the depth of political crookedness and that the only salva tion for the common people was to gather under the protection of a move ment fashioned somewhat after the socialist and municipal ownership creeds. Wid© Scope of Opinion. So as to afford a wide scope of opinion, great latitude was exercised in the sending of invitations. Radical socialists, single taxers, half-way so cialists and just plain reformers ol the every day type were invited. Beside these, a few cards were sent to well-known priters on political top ics whose opinions, it was inferred, might be of some value. The socialists were represented Ly several of their most able leaders, among them Morris Hilquit, Leonard Abbott, Victor Berger and Gaylord Wilshire, editor of Wilshire's Social ist Magazine. Then there were some rabid municipai ownership adherents, conspicuously, ex-Senator John Ford and Arthur Brisbane. Others in the throng were Corporation Counsel Geo. Record of Jersey City,, John Sparago, Professor Franklin H. Giddings of Co lumbia, David Graham Phillips, Ray Stannard Baker, State Senator Ever ett Colby of New Jersey, George Fred Williams, William Kent, a Chicago millionaire; John Brisbene Walker, E. J. Ridgeway, of Everybody's Maga zine; Ernest Poole, John Dewitt War ner, A. J. Boulton, Joseph Medill Pat terson, the Chicago millionaire who turned socialist last week, and Robert Hunter. Trusts and Political Tyranny. The leliberations were presided over by Mr. Stokes, who told the guests that the plain people of America are fairly screaming for deliverance from political bondage. He gave the trusts some hard raps and said it is evident that something must be done to check the spread of political tyranny. He suggested that the thinkers air their : views. One of the socialists said he agreed with Mr. Stokes about the greed of trusts, and added with spirit that the socialist party had been fighting thein ever since socialism and trusts had met face to face. He thought the only way to arrive at the state of bliss indi cated by Mr. Stokes was for the American people to embrace socialism. The speech was not received with outbursts of cheers, Mr. Colby break ing the silence to say that the repub lican party in New Jersey was doing considerable work right now in the di rection indicated by the socialists, and a party working on the lines ot the reorganized republicanism of New Jersey might be a useful thing for the whole country. He • was not at all enthusiastic about casting his lot with the socialist party, but was willing to do all he could to help spread the Jersey brand of reform. M. O. as a Way Out. Then a municipal ownership man, who did not like the trend of things, took the floor. He said he thought some kind of an amalgamation of the independent parties, with a sort of temperate dash of socialism thrown "n, would do the trick. He did not feel like committing the M. O.'s to social ism, but was willing to take a chance on a mild degree of socialistic doc trine. Things went from bad to worse. Mr. Berger, the socialist leader, who has a most energetic way of talking, said: "If the people want to be delivered out of bondage, they don't have ;o look far to find the. way out. The socialist party is at their command." "That is all very good," said Mr. Colby, "but the way to accomplish anything is ti get the votes. We may talk all the rest of our lives about what course we thought the people ought to take, but the test is whether we can get the votes. That 18 what counts." Small Chance of Agreement. It was getting painfully evident that there was small chance of locating teh common ground. Each speaker had a decided idea about how to proceed in the work and none of them agreed. Mr. Stokes suggested that the abuse of the money power is the great evil of today, and that some way to curb it might be devised. <'I do not object to the accumula tion of wealth so long as the rignis of the masses are not trampled upon,' me said; "but when the necessities of life are placed in control of great com binations of capital and the people are made to suffer in consequence. It is time to do something." "Yes, that's right," asserted one of the thinkers. "I guess I know some thing about it. I work fo r my liv ing and get $20 a week. I have a hard tustle, too. I'd like to know how to regulate this thing so that we work ing fellows could get a square deal. That's all I'm after." In this strain the argument drifted. The chances for delivering the people grew smaller as the hours passed. Some of the gathering, convinced that nothing would come of it, left on the late trains. The others started in again to see if thoy could not agree on some form of action, but it was a hopeless task. THOMPSON SPENT SATURDAY HERE Seattle Engineer Viewed Prelimniary Work Being Done on New Water System. Engineer Thomson, who sp£nt sev- eral hours Saturday viewing the work being done by his force of engineers in securing data to be used in locat- ing a route for the pipe line on upper Mill creek, returned to Seattle Satui- day evening. "Engineer Thomson seemed well pleased with the rate of progress be ing accomplished in the preliminary work," Water Superintendent Knight said this morning. "The engineers have nearly completed their work, and the maps and profiles of the Mill creek basin will probably be ready for En gineer Thomson to locate a route for the pipe line within another wees. The proposed route is left entirely in the hands of Engineer Thomson, as will also be the location of the intake, settling basins and all work connected with constructing the system." Work Will Start Soon. Water Superintendent Knight stated this morning that the water depart ment is ready to begin actual work on the pipe line as soon as the route is selected, and Engineer Thomson says the word. The National Pipe company is busily engaged in getting out material for the contract the com pany was awarded for building the 20- inch line, and the first shipment will probably be made before the first of the month. The excavating of the ditch line, in take and settling basins will probab'y be done by the water department un der the direction of Engineer Thom son. The accounts and all clerical work will be handled through Water Registrar McLean's office. TO CURE A COLD IN ONE DAY Take Laxative Bromo Quinine Tablets. Druggists refund money if it fails to cure.

BARROW'S HOME TRACTS Located on the Seeber road, less than 300 yards north of the new Berney School, offer the finest sites for subur ban homes of any tract in or around Walla Walla. The original tract, consisting of 23 acres, has just been platted into acre and fractional acre tracts and will be placed on the market at prices ranging from $450 to $700 each. New roads have been sur veyed out and each tract faces on a thoroughfare. A perfect water right goes with each tract. The soil is a rich black loam and Is the best garden and fruit land in the valley. Some of the tracts are now in strawberries and fruit. Th!« tract has lain idle for several years, but the owner now desires to close it out and to move the land freely .las placed a value on each tract that can not be duplicated anywhere. The lo cation of these tracts is simply ideal. The climate cannot be excelled and the view of the Blue Mountains and valley is superb. The sidewalk on Pleasant street, running to the U, H.
