ML sumps P3STOFFICE Selsysd Trains Begin to Arrive With Three Dags' Mail. CLERKS ANO CARRIERS KEPT ON JUMP BITTER WINTER WEATHER WORKS HARDSHIPS ON MAIL CARRIERS. The iceman in his busiest season wasn't in it with the clerks and car riers at the Walla Walla postoffice this morning when they tackled a three days' mail that arrived at 9:30 o'clock this morning on sand-bound trains from all directions. The Spokane flyer that left Portland Saturday evening pulled into Walla Walla late last night and brought the first mail that reached here since Sat urday evening. This morning's train brought in a two days' eastern mail and with a two days' Sound mail piling in a short time afterwards, the clerks and carriers were simply swamped witn mail bags. The city carriers were compelled to make two and three trips today to clean up the accumulated mail matter on their routes and in the biting co! i that prevailed all day the job of mail carrier was found to be no sinecure. Hard on Rural Carriers. The rural carriers went out on their routes this morning with wagons piled high with mail. With roads clogged by drifted snow and a low temperature to face, the rural carriers had many difficulties today in making their rounds and it was late this afternoon before the last one came in, half frozen to death. The rural carriers say the present weather is extremely hard on their horses and they are compelled to change every other day. The hardest route is what is known as No. 5, whicn serves the Mill creek and Russell creek country. The route is about 23 miles long and necessitates climbing the Mill creek hill at Dudley, which is one of the steepest pieces of road in the county and exceedingly dagerous during slippery weather.

THICK STILL COVERED IT PAGE RAILROAD OFFICIALS HOPEFUL THAT ALL WILL BE RUNNING ON TIME TONIGHT. With the exception of the Snake river branch the obstructions of sand piled on the O. R. & N. tracks have all been removed and it is expected that by night all trains will be running about on time. The first train over the O. R. & N. to reach Walla Walla from Portland was No. 4, the Spokane flyer, which had been on the road since Saturday night. On account of the sand drift at Page station the train was sent from Wallula to Walla Walla, reaching this city last night about 7:30 o'clock. From here it proceeded to Spokane via Starbuck. No. 3, the Portland flyer, passed through Walla Walla westbound at 1:30 o'clock this morning, taking a large number of passengers who had been held here since Saturday night. One Train Abandoned. No. 44, the swing train betwee.fl Wal la Walla and Wallula, was abandoned last night, but railroad officials believe that the' train will go out tonight on time. No. 4, which left Portland last night at 6:15 o'clock, passed through Walla Walla this morning at 9:30 o'clock, going on to Spokane over the branch via Starbuck. No. 8, the Pendleton-Spokane train, after making connection with No. 1 and No. 6, main line trains at Pendle ton, came into Walla Walla practically on time this morning. Many delayed passengers for Walla Walla and the north were brought in. Train No. 1 on the Washington & Columbia River railroad yesterday did not reach Walla Walla from Pasco until 4:30 o'clock, and after going Dayton pulled out for Pasco last night at 9 o'clock. This morning's east bound train reached Walla Walla at 11 o'clock, being two hours delayed. No freight trains have been oper ated on either road since Saturday, but they will all probably be sent out on time tomorrow morning. MILEAGE BOOKS FOR THE STATE Special Form Issued to B&ard of Con- trol by Railroads for Use of Guards. In the future when guards from the state penitentiary travel over the state after prisoners sentenced to prison they will use mileage books and no longer purchase tickets for the trip. The state board of control has received from the Northern Pacific, Great # North ern and Oregon Railroad & Navigation companies a consignment of specially issued mileage books which are to be used for transporting persons to the different state charitable and penal institutions. The books are issued in regular form to the board of control xt the regular rates, but certain special provisions by which a guarcl or attend ant from one of the state institutions having a number of charges or pati ents with him can carry them all on the same mileage book. The plan was conceived in the governor's office sev eral months ago, and has been worked out through the railroad commission. It means a considerable saving financially to the state and a great convenience to the attendants from the state instituions. TOWN TOPICS Weather Forecast —Fair tonight; Wednesday fair and warmer.

There is only one way to cure deafness, and that is by constitutional remedies. Deafness is caused by an inflamed con dition of the mucous lining of the Enstachian Tube. When this tube is inflamed you have a rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and when it is en tirely closed, Deafness is the result, and unless the inflammation can be taken out and this tube restored to its normal condition 'hearing will be de stroyed forever; nine cases out of ten are caused by Catarrh, which is not! 1 - ing but an inflamed condition of the mucous surfaces.

MANILA, March 13.—General Wood, who has returned from Jolo, said to day that women and children were killed in the battle, but it was unavoid able. Women were fighting beside war riors and children were being used as shields.

Most of the injuries to Ameri can 'roops were by spears and knives. The wounded natives fought surgeons after the battle on the operating tables A. E. AUGUSTA VO. Selected. SUPREME COURT DECISIONS Two Important Opinions Handed Down By Tribunal. lINE FENCE DISPUTE SETTLED SOLDIER IN MANILA GIVEN TIME TO FILE ANSWER IN DIVORCE CASE. The time-honored dispute of the line fence was the origin of the suit of E. L. Lindley, respondent, vs. K. A. Jonn ston, appellant, has been affirmed d> the supreme court. The two owned ad joining farms in Columbia county. The original owners of the farms agreed upon a dividing line 24 years ago and the fence was built according ly. Recently Johnston had a survey run and found the fence over on lis land. He began to move it where ne thought it should be and Lindley brought suit to restrain him. Although Lindley gets part of Johnston's farm, the court holds that as he had been in possession of the land on his side of the fence for 24 years the statute of limititations has run against Lindley s claim to it. Gives Time t» Answer. The distance which separated him from the object of his affections shouKl be no bar to W. J. Hill, an American soldier at Manila, securing his rights in a divorce suit which his wife had brought against him in his absence, at Vancouver, Wash., according to an opinion handed down by the supreme court which reverses the decree of the superior court and gives the soldier an opportunity to answer the charges laid against him. While she was writing him in affectiona'e terms that she was preparing to join him in Manila, Lola M. Hill was preparing to institute >li vorce proceedings. Hill was served with summons by mail and the court refused an extension of time in which his deposition could be secured. The decision of the supreme court reverses the lower court and directs that suf ficient time be given him to answer. CANNOT SELL PRISON MADE BRIGK Attorney General Holds Material Can- not Be Purch?.sed by Persons Residing Out of State. According to a decision rendered by Assistant Attorney General Falknor the state cannot sell the brick manu factured at the state penitentiary out side of the state. An application was made some time ago to Warden Ket*s by a contractor in Umatilla county, Oregon, for several thousand brick. He held up the application until he submitted the question to the attorney general for an opinion. The assistant attorney general holds that the law prohibits the sale of any product of tne penitentiary to any person residing out aide of the state. As there is a boy cott on the brick manufactured at the penitentiary the material now on hand will have to be used by the state. COPPER MERGER IS OFF.
