Local Fans Are Enthusiastic Over
the Proposition.
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-
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.
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
"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
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

Banker and His Wife Abandon Splen-
did Home in Quest of Health.
GREENWICH, Conn., March 27.-*-J.
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.
Chief Engineer of Steamship Dies in
His Bunk—Lampblack the
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
No doctor could be found convenient

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.

Makes It Plain That a Report
Should Soon be Forthcoming.
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."
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.
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
Recently when before Judge O'Sulli
van, Jerome said he might ask for
warrants for Bliss, Cortelyou and Per
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

The Blowers of Thebes Were ExhHi
Many Centnrlea Abo.
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

tiful piece of stained glass, with ac
engraved emblazonment of the mon
arch Thothmes 111., who lived 3,40 C
years ago.
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.
