NEW YORK, March 27. —The great match for the world's championship 13.1 balkline between Willie Hoppe and George Slossen, will be played at the Madison street concert hall tonight and HVery seat in the hall is sold out. Few matches have attracted as much attention among lovers of billiards as this one, as it is considered to be a battle royal of youth and genius against age, experience and mechanical precision. The terms of the contest are fioO points at eighteen-inch balk line. one shot in balk, and the stakes are $500 a side, the winner to take the net receipts.. Willie Hoppe is the youngest of the new generation of billiard experts. Even before he yent to Paris to wrest the laurels from the veteran Maurice Vigneaux, it was Hoppe's ambition to play a game with Slosson, who is con sidered the best exponent of the 18.1 balkline game in this country. He challenged Slosson to play, but the lat ter declined, saying that Hoppe had not yet shown himself to be of champion- ship caliber. The stand of Slosson ! i.irc than anything else induced Hoppe —=— the THE MODERN PLANT The only plant within a radius of 200 miles where the raw paper is made into the finished book.

Slosson has done some ex cellent work in his practice games dur ing the past few weeks, but Hoppe has played a phenomenal game and there are many experts who firmly be lieve that Hoppe will find it as easy to beat Slosson as he found it to de feat the French champion. As to the betting on the outcome of the match. Hoppe is the general favor ite. Bets of ten to eight, and even ten to seven, are freely made, and Hoppe is said to have placed a num ber of bets at that ratio. For the Starving Japanese.

LON'DOX, March 27. —Dr. Emil Reich, who Is just now giving a series of lectures nt Claridge's hotel, on Pla to's philosophy, appears to agree, in his views on drunkenness and its pre vention, with Rev. Stanley Parker, a Wesleyan pastor at Plumstead. Mr. Parker has gone one better than Rev. Dr. Samuel Thackeray, who, as men tioned a few weeks ago, had taken over the Fish and Eels inn at Hoddle ston, with a view of reforming the drunkard. Mr. Parker has organized a brass band which he marches through Plumsted in the evening in an endeavor to induce half-drunken people away from the public houses to an im promptu sing-song in the central hall of the town, and. what is more, he is succeeding. The publicans laughed at first, but now are angry, and one night Mr. Parker was treated to a drenching with a bucket of beer, but that did not dampen the ardor of the little pastor. He does not try to preach to his audi ence in their half-drunken state. When he gets them together he simply tells them to sing what they like. The re sult may be better imagined than de- THE EVENING STATESMAN,WALLA WALLA, WASHINGTON. scribed, but in the morning they have a distinct impression of having spent a merry evening and so they come and come again. That is just Dr. Emll Reich's theory, too, for the prevention of drunkenness, for here Is what he said in the course of his lecture the other evening: "Can you imagine the signing of a bit of paper,known as a pledge will curb human passion? What do men drink for? Why do they drink so much, especially of the wretched stuff consumed by the ordinary drinker? I will tell you. Want of amusement. "Between the amount of amusement given to a nation and the quantity of drink consumed by that nation there is a clear and almost fixed relation. France seldom drinks to drunkenness, but she has plenty of amusement. "When will these temperance and teetotal people learn that their efforts to suppress drink by the methods they adopt are futile? The bicycle has been the greatest foe of the drink traf fic. It has accomplished Infinitely more than all the talk of the teetotaler and far more sanely and'beneficially. "Open your theaters on Sunday to the people, encourage cycling, the love of theaters, the love of amusement, and the occupation of temperance and tee total orators is gone. Take away a glass of drink from a man and he will get another, and if he cannot get that he will resort to opium." Then, with a twinkle in his eye, the lecturer created a merry peal of laugh ter by adding: "Or, what is ten times worse, tea; because the passion is from within and counteractives of a depriv ative order will never do. They have always failed us. "Government statistics show beyond cavil that the number of murders among teetotalers is far greater than that among even confirmed drunkards. Some people ascribe all crime to drink. I agree with them if you make that drink water." STEEL TRUST TO CREATE II CITY Millions to Be Expended at a Point Midway Between Ore and CHICAGO, March 19.—The United States Steel corporation is preparing to expend the enormous sum of $75,000,000 in the creation of a great steel plant at Gary, on the Indiana shore of Lake Michigan, near Chicago. The Illinois Steel works in South Chicago will be transferred bodily to the town to be created. Between 3000 and 4000 acres of land have been pur chased at a cost of $2,500,000 and $14,- 500,00 has been set aside to begin the work. The selection of Gary as the site for the colossal plant to be establish ed is because of the general under standing that the industry can be as sembled there as cheaply as at any place in the United States. It is believ ed that Gary will become the greatest a nter for the manufacture of steel and iron products in the world. It is an excellent location, directly between the oie mines of the Lake Superior region and the coke and coal regions of Penn sylvania. It is evidently the purpose of the trust to create a town like that which KurrMiean manufacturers have develop °c around the sites of their respective works. The great German steel men, the Ki;upps, have such a town at Essen, Oerinany. In France. Russia and Eng- i kmc', towns have been incorporated by I the manufacturers on their own prop-! crtv*. In Europe such procedure has j been advantageous to the manufactur er. Ea---h dwelling has been provided with a small garden. It is clean 'and has adequate space for the family which it is designed to accommodate. The rents are cheap. In many cases retreats have been provided for work men who have grown old in the service of the corporation and retired on pen sions. The possession of the property enables "he corporation to expel un ruly c! a'&cters and minimize the dan ger of strikes. The great result, how ever, has been the development of a good strong working organization, which is loth to give up the advantages oftered ty the. plant, which takes such goo'd care of them.

COWLES CHOICE FOR CHIEF 11 Probably be Admiral Converse as Chief of Navagation IS FAVORED DY MOST NAVY OFFICERS CONSIDERED TO BE BEST OFFI- CER IN THE SERVICE FOR THE POSITION. WASHINGTON, D. C., March 27. — Naval officers are greatly interested in the selection of an officer who shall succeed Rear Admiral G. A. Converse as chief of the bureau of navigation. This is the most importana naval bil- let ashore, and the detail is of vital interest, since the office has to do with the affairs of the personnel. Among the officers who are mentioned as available, if not active candidates, are Rear Admiral William S. Cowles, now chief of the bureau equipment; Cap tain Richard Wainwright, a member of the general board, now on duty in Washington; Captain John E. Pills bury, who is Rear Admiral Evans' chief of staff; Captain William J. Bar nette, now on duty here in connection with the general board, and Captain Richardson Clover, former chief intel ligence officer, and now at his home in Washington on waiting orders. It was thought that some of these officers could be detailed as chief of the bu reau of docks and yards, thus return ing to the line an important duty which has for some years been discharged by a senior member of the corps of civil engineers, but the selection for that post of Rear Admiral Endicott has set at rest this idea, at least tem porarily. The choice of the most ac tive and progressive offices of the line for the position of chief of the bureau of navigation is Admiral Cowles, who has frequently in the past had duty in the bureau, years ago in charge of the personnel and detail, where his wide I knowledge of the qualifications of of ficers and his fine discrimination gave such satisfaction, and more recently, before his sea cruise, as assistant to the chief of the bureau. President Tucker to Lecture. BERKELEY, Cal., March 27—This year's annual lecture course in the E. T. Earl lectureship of Pacific Theolog ical seminary will be opened this even ing by Dr. W. J.

FANVILLE, Mich., March 27. —Dele- gates representing every district in the fruit belt of Michigan are assembled here to attend the meeting called by the State Horticultural society, for the 1 purpose of bringing about a federation j j of the fruit growers of this state. Such j a federation is considered of great im- j | portance to improve the fruit market- | ing conditions and thus prevent serious | losses to the friut growers. It is plan- ; ned to have one central officer, who | will keep the growers posted in regard j to the demand for fruits in every mar ket and the ruling prices, so as to reg ulate the supply and keep up the prices. It is quite probable that some effort will be made to bring about the adoption of a law requiring each, grower to stamp all sealed packages or fruit sold by him, with his name 1 and address. Opening a New Town. CROOKSTON, Minn., March 27. — The town 68-23 was thrown open to settlement at 9 o'clock this morning and there was quite a rush of people who had come to avail themselves of the opportunity of securing good land in the last of the towns in the Big Fork country to be opened by the gov ernment. The number of good claims is between eighty and one hundred, of 160 acres each, and some of the claims are very desirable for farming pur poses.
