WALLA WALLA FOR LEAGUE Local Fans Are Enthusiastic Over the Proposition. SOLICITING COMMITTEE BEGINS WORK "BUCK" WEAVER SUGGESTED AS MANAGER—PLAN TO FORM STOCK COMPANY. The prospects of Walla Walla having a team in the Northwest league this season seem to be very bright, judging from the enthusiasm that is being dis- played by the business men of Walla Walla. The general sentiment is that this would be the means of giving Walla Walla splendid advertising throughout the country and would be an assistance to the Fifty Thousand club in building up the city and sur roundings. Many of the business men this morning expressed a wililngness to assist in forming a stock company and going right ahead to form a cor- poration. Conference Yesterday. A conference was held yesterday af ternoon at the Hotel Dacres, there be ing present President Lucas, of the Northwest league: George O'Connor, John L. Sharpstein, Sidney Menkus. W. P. McKean, W. H. Kirkman, J. B. Catron, Robert Burns, Joseph McCabe and Arthur A. Greene. President Lucas outlined what would be required if Walla Walla decided to put a team in the league. He said according to plans there would be a schedule of 100 games for the season, half of which would be played by teams at home. There will be five games each week and the season is to open April 25 and close September 9. The proposition to join with Pendle ton and form a joint stock company and the team represent both cities was turned down and was decided that if the necessary money could be pledged for Walla Walla to go it alone. Committee at Work. The committee met this afternoon at the office of the Fifty Thousand club and organized. The city was divided into districts and the work of soliciting subscriptions for stock was taken up. The canvass was taken up late this afternoon and tomorrow will be con tinued with much vigor. It was de cided to place the shares at $10 each and the committee feels confident that it will not experience any trouble in selling every share of the stocK. Want "Buck" Weaver. If the proposition is made a go the local organization will probably try to induce "Buck" Weaver to take the management of the team. Weaver is now in Kansas and is anxious to come west again. He was a member of the Walla Walla team in the days of the Inland Empire league and the fans, have every confidence in his ability to manage a baseball team. Secretary Dorsey, of the Northwest league, arrived from Spokane this af ternoon and will assist the local com mittee with its work of soliciting. TO DEFY COURTS. Single Ownership of Western Mills, Is Threat Made by Mill Owner. APPLETON. Wis., March 14.—An aboslute monopoly of the print paper trade in the west and a boost of the price to 5 cents before the year is over may be the result of the United States supreme court decision in the general print paper trust case. This is what one manufacturer says: "There is no doubt whatever that if the newspaper publishers win their fight against the manufacturers, the n.ills will go under single ownership. It cannot be otherwise. With market conditions as they are. it would be simply impossible to go back to the old way of each mill scrambling for orders. It is bad enough as it is. And it has been proven taht the single own ership principle is feasible, works well on prices and cannot be attacked in the courts, so if we cannot have the General Paper company, we will have that. "Why. I do not consider myself s vindictive person as a rule, still I must say that I would like to see these pub lishers paying five cents a pound for their paper for awhile, and you mark my word, stranger things have hap uened in this world than that they should be paying just that same five cents before the present year is pass ed." Several other manufacturers ex pressed the same degree of confidence in the prospective single ownership scheme and declare there is little ques tion in their mind that if the govern ment rules against the General Paper company, every print paper mill In the middle west will be absorbed by one company.

Kennedy Tod, the banker, and his wife, are wooing beneficent, . health giving nature, and have got as close to her as they can. They have de serted their splendid home, Innis Ar den, at Sound beach, on the shore of Long Island sound, and are leading the simplest life in two little rough shingled cabins. These huts are on Mr. Tod's great estate, but they are in a woodland, which if not primeval, is certainly carefully preserved. In one cabin dwells Mrs. Tod, wh\ was Maria Howard Potter, Bishop Potter's niece. She, who is a leader of society in New York, sleeps on a bed of boards. In the other hut lives the banker worth millions. There the civic reformer and philanthropist exists like a trapper in the forest. A serious surgical operation was performed on Mrs. Tod a year ago, and her recovery was very slow. "I am trying to coax my wife back t<«> health, and this camp is one of the means by which I hope to make her herself again," said Mr. Tod. Mrs. Tod's health has improved since she sought Mother Nature's em brace at the first of the year. SITHERED TO DEATH BY FLAMES Chief Engineer of Steamship Dies in His Bunk—Lampblack the Cause. NEW YORK, March 27.—Alexander Stewart, chief engineer of the steam ship Maconomo, was smothered to death by the fumes of a big oil lamp in his cabin on the vessel last night. A big coach dog. asleep in the cabin, also died from the effect of the fumes. The Maconomo is lying at the West Shore dock in Weekawken, ready to said tomorrow for Black Sea ports, with a cargo of freight. A stiff gale on the North river contributed to make the cabins on the steamship cold and Stewart, after practically hermetically sealing the room, turned on the light at full force and sat down to read a book. The dog stretched himself out on the iloor. When the chief engineer did not report for breakfast today the first officer, Mr. Dittman, went to call him. An amazing sight met Mr. Dittman's goze as he opened the door. The walls, the furniture, the ceiling and the bodies of the man and dog were cov ered to a depth of a quarter of an inch with lampblack. The big lamp was smoking in the rack to which it was attached. No doctor could be found convenient to the ship in Weehawken, so a tug j was summoned and the unconscious I man was hurried aboard. His nostrils were full of lampblack and doubtless his lungs were lined with it. He died on the way across the river. Hoboken's Anniversary. HOBOKEN, N. Y„ March 27.—Today is the fifty-first anniversary of the granting of a city charter to Hoboken and the day was observed throughout the city in an appropriate manner. Many business houses were closed and flags weer displayed on all public and other buildings and from the masts of the vessels in the harbor. Special exercises were held in all the public schools and in the evening various so cieties had banquets with commem orative addresses. The Chicago Grain Market. CHICAGO, 111..

THE EVENING STATESMAN, WALLA WALLA, WASHINGTON. mm rounds up experts Makes It Plain That a Report Should Soon be Forthcoming. DISGUSTED AT THE AWFUL EXPENSE SEATTLE ACCOUNTANTS THIS AFTERNOON PROMISED RE- Disgusted at the expense the city is being put to and the way the work is ebing drawn out, Mayor Hunt visited the experts at work on the city's books at their office on the top floor of the Ransom building this afternoon and blandly inquired when a report might be expected. Mayor Hunt was accom panied by Councilman Cox, chairman of the judiciary committee, and it is said the Seattle accountants were po litely informed that it would be ex pected in a very short time. The ac countaints promised that the work would be wound up and a report made within 10 days. "The expert work has gotten to be a farce and should be wound up at the earl|est possible moment," Mayor Hunt declared this afternoon. "The expense the city is being put to is something outrageous. I don't know what the ex perts have unearthed, but it seems the work has progressed far enough so that a report might be made." HIGH WATER RECEDINC AT STOCKTC N Hundreds of Armed Guards Patrol the STOCKTOX. Cal., March 27.—Hun dreds of armed guards patrol the levees in the reclamation districts of the San Joaquin river. It is slowly rising, but if is believed the worst is over. The lower San Joaquin river is rising, but reclamation districts are not in danger. At Kasson it is estimated that 6,000 acres were flooded this morning. A thousand head of hogs were drowned. Twenty thousand acres on the west side near Banta is inundated. The Molen family is in danger of drowning and a launch has been sent to rescue them. Parts of Stockton are kooded, but the business section has escaped. The water is now falling in this city. City Superintendent of Streets Oscar Wright went insane from the strain of fighting the flood this morning. It is j believed he will recover. PERKINS OF N. Y. LIFE ARRESTED Jerome Secures a Warrant for High NEW YORK, N. Y., March 27.—-Mag istrate Moss, of the police court, is said to have issued this morning, as the result of a conference with Je rome, three warrants for three insur ance officials whose names have been prominently identified with evidence adduced by the legislative investigating committee. Jerome went direct from the police court to his private office, where it is said he communicated by phone with the individuals in ques tion. As a result they are expected to appear before the magistrate promptly and surrender themselves. This apparently is Jerome's answer to Judge O'Sullivan, who urged the grand jury not to permit the district attor ney to take the insurance case away from them, but to demand all the evi dence. Recently when before Judge O'Sulli van, Jerome said he might ask for warrants for Bliss, Cortelyou and Per kins. Vice President D. P. Kings ley, of the New York Life, swore to the warrants issued today. It developed this afternoon that only one warrant was Issued as the result of Jerome's activity, and that is for Perkins. According' to Jerome, his plan is to test the law. Perkins will apply for a writ of habeas corpus. Jerome will submit the facts and ask for a decision. Muslcale, Olivet Chapel, March 28.

The glassblowers of ancient Thebes are known to have been as proflcienl in that particular art as is the most scientific craftsman of the same trade of the present day after a lapse ol forty eenturies of so called "progress.'' They are well hcquainted with tht art of staining glass and are known tc have produced that commodity in great profusion and perfection. Ros selini gives an illustration of a piece ol stained glass known to be 4.000 years old, both in tint and design. In this case the color is struck through th€ vitrified structure, and he mentions de signs struck entirely in pieces from a half inch to three-quarters of an incfc thick, the color being perfectly incor porated with the structure of the piect and exactly the same on both the ob verse and reverse sides. The priests of Ptali at Memphis were adepts in the glassmaker's art, and nol only did they have factories for manu facturing the common crystal variety, but they had learned the vitrifying ol the different colors and the imitatioc of precious stones to perfection. Theii Imitations of the amethyst and of th« various other colored gems were sc true to nature that even now, aftei they have lain in the desert sands from 2,000 to 4,000 years, it takes an experl to distinguish the genuine article fron: the spurious. It has been shown that besides being experts in glassmaking and glass coloring, they used the dia mond in cutting and engraving glass In the British museum there is a beau tiful piece of stained glass, with ac engraved emblazonment of the mon arch Thothmes 111., who lived 3,40 C years ago. THE ATMOSPHERE. First Attempt to Weigh It Was Made by Aristotle. If we are to believe both legend and history, the first attempt to weigh air was that made by Aristotle, the great Greek philosopher of the fifth century. He first weighed an empty goatskin bag and then inflated it and again put it in the balances, and because he found no difference in weight under the two conditions announced to the world that air was a substance wholly without weight. With modern laboratory apparatus most any high school scholar can dem onstrate the fact that a flask of teD cubic inches capacity weighs fully three grains more when filled with air than it does after being placed under the exhaust of an air pump. The nu merous experiments that have been made 011 the weight of air warrant the scientists in announcing that the weight of the whole terrestrial atmos phere is about equal to that of a solid copper ball sixty-two mile 3 in diameter. The philosophers have also shown that the weight of the atmosphere must be limited to where gravity overcomes the centrifugal force. If it were of equal density throughout its height above the earth, it could not extend a greater alti tude than 27,818 feet, which would leave about 1,200 feet of Mount Ever est sticking out above the atmosphere. It is a well known fact, however, that air loses its weight and density as we ascend from the sea level, and calcula tions which have been made on that basis go to show that there may be a stratum of very thiD air at a height of 21,000 miles. The I've of Quinine. People who suffer with the liver and who get run down in nerve strength sometimes complain that quinine does them no good, says a physician. The reason is this: When quinine passes into the intestine it is acted on by the bile and forms with It a salt that Is soluble only in a great excess of bile, so it passes out of the system without entering the blood at all. To prevent this bilious persons ought to clear out the bile by a good liver pill or a saline purgative before the quinine is taken. Even when the liver is not affected It is always best to take such medicines before using quinine. The Earth and Man Compared. If It were possible for a man to con struct a globe 800 feet in height—much less than twice the height of the Wash ington monument —and to place upon any portion of its surface an atom one four thousand three hundred and eight ieth of an inch in diameter and one one hundred and twentieth of an Inch in height, it would correctly denote the proportions man bears to the gigantic globe upon which he stands.
