HIVETOMB FOR POCIHOIITJIS May Bring the Remains nf tlie Princess From England MOVEMENT INAUGURATED IN VIRGINIA MEMORIAL COMMITTEE IS NOW FIGURING ON PLANS TO DIS- INTER THE REMAINS. NOFFOLK, Va„ April 2.-—The me morial committee of the Pocahontas association, which has in charge the erection of a tomb or cenotaph for Pocahontas at the Jamestown exposi tion, it is understood, are striving to sceure the former. Several influential Americans have been writing to England recently with the view of having the remains of Powhatan's favorite daughter brought back to her native land. It will be remembered that the Indian princess became ill shortly after the vessel which was to bring her home had left Gravesend .and so ill did she become that the ship put back. Pocahontas had been the toast of all England; entertainments had been planned in her honor, and medals struck off to commemorate her visit to court. She occupiel in the English eye the position of a barbaric princess whose father was emperor of an un bounded area, and the captain hav ing charge of the vessel which bore her was afraid to rish her precious life on the seas. Hardly had she dis embarked when her illness became very serious and within a few hours she died. She was buried in the little Gravesend church beneath the chan cel. The building was burned some years ago, but the vaults were not disturbed, therefore it is possible to disinter the remains of Pocahontas, and it is unlikely that serious opposi tion will develop in England. Whether the remains of Pocahontas will lie beneath the memorial fir not. the cap piece of statue which will sur mount the granite base will possess a value high in the estimate of his tory lovers: since the bronze for the statue will be case from old cannons used during the revolutionary, war and the colonial neriods. Bas reliefs will show Pocanhontas savins: the life of Captain John Smith: a replica of the medal specially coined in her honor by King James the First, a rep resentation of the Indian princess bearing corn to save the colonists, and the fourth will be her marriage to John Rolfe. It has been suggested that the"statue represent the princess in her garb of skins, holding out a welcoming hand toward Hampton Roads, an allegorical design which needs link discernment to translate, fot alone among the In dians. Pocahontas displayed a spirit of hospitality toward the whites, and as Smith says, "next to God was most instrumental in saving the colony." The committees in the various States which are collecting funds for the memorial report gratifying pro gress. and this long-neglected heroin© of the seventeenth century is now cer tain to have a memorial to her fame and virtues. It might have amused the stern and battle-scarred John Smith and Chris topher Newport to go through a coro nation scene with Powhatan as the re cipient of the crown, a serious and solemn joke perpetrated by the wisest fool in Christendom, who commanded that the Indian should be proclaimed solemnly empress of "Virginia. This might have been amusing, but Smith certainly, and perhaps Newport, would have lovingly placed upon the brow of Pocahontas laurels of gold or precious stones. She has been a long time without any tribute, but is not des itned to remain unrecognized longer. The approaching Jamestown ter centennial affords an ideal opportunity for this glorification of Pocahontas, since Jamestown might have been im possible without her aid. and it is very appropriate that the whole country should take an interest in the memo rial. because if Jameston had not been preserved, the United States might never have been lowa Democrats Will Ce'ebrate. DES MOINES. la.. April 2—The democrats of this state will celebrate the anniversary of the birth of Thomas Jefferson by a banquet at the Savery hotel this evening. Thomas Jefferson was born on April 13. 1743. but this early date was selected for the ban quet. for the sake of convenience, as it would not have been possible to secure the attendance of some of the principal guests of honor. Another reason is. that this afternoon, imme diately before the banquet, representa- tives of the democratic clubs of the state will hold a meeting at the club room of the hotel to receive reports of the conditions in the various sections of the state and to discuss the plans for the coming campaign. principal speakers at the banquet will be Governor Folk of Missouri, Gover nor Johnson of Minnesota and Mayor Dunne, of Chicago. Constitutional Convention. DETROIT. Mich., April 2. —At the general election held in this state to day the voters of the state are voting on the proposition to call and hold a convention for the purpose of mak ing a general revision of the consti tution of this state. The ballots on which this Question is submitted are separate from all other ballots used at this election. If a majority of the qualified voters voting at this election should decide in favor of calling such" a convention, it will become the duty of the legislature at its next session to provide by law for the election of delegates to such convention, whose duty it will be to prepare a general revision of the constitution, which shall be submitted to the qualified electors at some future time for adoption or rejection. NO INTEREST TO CONTRACTORS Navy Department Refuses to Allow Money for Delay in Construc- tion of Ships. WASHINGTON, D. C., April 2.—The navy department has refused to act favorably on the proposition to pay contractors interest for money which they do not draw on account of their agreements with the navy department. One of the firms which has been en gaged in building ships for the navy recently filed such a claim on the ground that money due for ship con struction had been withheld and that the deprivation of the money consti tuted a distinct loss, to be made good to the firm by the payment of interest by the government. Such a claim Is altogether unique, especially as this particular firm had an opportunity, common to all contractors, of obtain ing partial payments for fractional work done. Beyond this the govern ment declines to go, and there is nc authority, of course, for paying inter est on money which is held as se curity, either when filed in the form of a certified check as a bond for the faithful performance of work, or as final payment withheld pending formal acceptance of the work. AHIN'S MM HONORED Anniversary of Her Birth Celebrated Today Throughout Denmark—Re ceived Many Congratulations. COPENHAGEN, April 2—As in former years, the anniversary of the birth of Hans Christian Anderson, the great Danish writer of children's fairy •stories, is celebrated today throughout Denmark. Odense, the birthplace of Andersen, where many interesting rel ics of the great writer are still kept, was visited today by thousands of peo ple from all parts of the country and many foreigners. Although the exer cises throughout the country were not as elaborate as last year, when the centennary of Andersen's birth was celebrated, the observance of the day was general, There were special exercises in all public schools in this city and else where in Denmark, and many societies held special celebrations. Following the precedent established by his father, the late King Christian, the young king visited the Andersen monument in the royal gardens and deposited a beautiful wreath at the foot of the monument.

RAILROAD CONCEDES A POINT Northern Pacific Will Weigh Lum ber Cars in State [WILL PROVE A SMINB TO LUMBERMEN OTHER RAILROADS MAY FOLLOW AND GRANT THE SAME The matter of weighing lumber cars at the loading point rather than the destination, which has been in contro versy between the lumbermen and the railroads for years, and to cover which a law was passed by the 1905 session of the legislature, which the companies have so far refused to obey, has been settled, says Victor H. Beckman, sec retary of the State Lumbermen's asso ciation. At the regular monthly meet ing of the association in the quarters or the Seattle Lumbermen's club, at the Olympus Saturday, a voluntary proposition was read from the freight department of the Northern Pacific railroad, accepting the proposition of the association, which is substantially the provision of the state law. The association recommended to the mill men the acceptance of the proposition, and left to the transportation commit tee the working out of the details. The committee, through J. H. Bloedel, its chairman, is to communicate with the company in the matter, accepting its proposition. According to Secretary Beekman, of the association, acceptance of the lum bermen't position in the matter by the Northern Pacific presages a similar concession on the part of other roads. What It Means to Shippers. This matter has been a vexed ques tion between the railroads and the lumber shippers for years. Shipments made in the winter months almost in variably reached their destination car rying an added weight of from 1,000 to 3,000 pounds of ice and snow, ac cumulated en route, on which the'mill men were paying freight, in some cases from 40 to 50 cents per 100 pounds. In this way the lumber men lost several thousand dollars annually, which will be saved to them under the new arrangement. The passage of the law failed to bring the desired re form in the matter, but it is the lum ber men's belief, says Mr. Beekman. that the trouble has now been settled through the proposition of the Xorth- >-rn Pacific. 1 When it is considered that the rail shipments of the year 1905 were 60.865 cars, of which the winter months fur nished only a slight percentage un der their relative proportion, the amount of a saving which may mean $6 to $8 or $10 on each car that passes through the wintry weather of the northern tier of states, can be rough ly estimated. Another matter taken up by the as sociation Saturday afternoon, which the club spent most of the afternoon in discussing, was the revision of the grading rules for lumber, which have been in effect since 1903. The changes made as the result of the discussion are not sweeping or particularly ma terial. Another matter on which the lum ber men are at issue with the rail roads is the weighing of the stakes and other appliances used in keeping the load on the cars. The state law provides that a weight of 1.000 pounds for each car shall be deducted from the weight on which the shipper is charged for the carrying of his lum ber. The railroads, however, have re fused to recognize the jurisdiction of the state in the matter, claiming that in the case of lumber shipments to the eastern market the interstate com merce commission is the regulating body, and a case is now up before the commission. The railroads have offered to com promise the matter on the basis of an allowance of 500 pounds per car, which the lumber men have not as yet ac cepted. One of the large firms in Min neapolis claims to have used 360,000 feet of clear lumber for the staked last year, and in addition to this paid freight on it to the railroad company. Strikes at Newspapers. WASHINGTON, April 2.—Senator Tillman has offered a resolution of in quiry which will bring every country newspaper in the United States buz zing about his ears. And the senate has passed the resolution. It requires the interstate commerce commission to inform the senafu whether at present any railroad fur nishes transportation for value re ceived other than money. It also asks whether any railroad has an ar rangement with any newspaper where- CONCESSION. by the timecards and changes in schedule are published in exchange for transportation courtesies. In addition, Mr. Tillman seeks to ascertain whether the interstate com merce commission regards either of these acts as a violation of the law; also if any cases are now pending which are based on such violations. He further inquires why actions not been brought in court if none is pending. Economizing On the Music. ..WASHINGTON, D. C., April 2.— Someone in the navy department has discovered that it would be bestowing too much upon a subordinate to give the leader of the band at the naval academy the pay and allowances of a second lieutenant in the marine corps. Recently the superintendent of the academy. Rear Admiral Sands, wrote to Washington that he entertained grave fears for the continued prosper ity, not to any integrity of the band, the members of which were getting too old to march. He recommended to in crease the pay of the members and the pay and allowances of the leader. To this, however, serious objections have been raised by certain officers of the department. PRISON SHIP MARTYRS' FUND Uuless Something Is Done Soon the Association Will Lose Big Ap propriation. ALBANY, N. Y., April 2. —Secretary Taft has written a letter to Governor Higgins as a result of the conference which took place a short time ago in the office of Mayor McClellan of New York, when the Prison Ship Martyr Monument commission of New Yor discussed the condition of the funds. It was recently discovered that an ap propriation of $500,000 made by the state of New York as a contribution for the monument fund will lapse on April 29, and that it will be necessary to take prompt action in the legisla ; ture to continue the appropriation in effect. This can only be accomplished by state legislation, and it is to this end that Secretary Taft, who is presi dent of the commission, has written to Governor Higgins. The law which contains the appropriation will also authorize a change in the method of accounting, so as to simplify the sys tem of disbursement. AN INTERESTING POINT OE LAW Cyclist Secures Damage Against Dog Which Caused His Wheel to Overturn. LONDON, April 2. —A divisional court, composed of the lord chief jus tice, Mr. Ridley, and Mr. Justice Dar ling, has decided an appeal of consid erable interest to cyclists, as well as to dog owners. The case was that of Millns vs. Gar rett, and the facts, as stated in court, were briefly as follows: The plaintiff was one of a body of cyclists riding on the road near Gravesend. He was sec ond in line when a dog, which was blind, rushed out. The leader shouted, whereupon the animal got out of his way, but ran into the plaintiff and overturned his machine. The plaintiff sustained injuries for whiqh Judge Emden, in the Gravesend county court, awadlel him $260. Against this decision the owner ot the dog appealed, alleging that he had not been guilty of any negligence, and was therefore not liable. The basis of the county court's decision was that as the dog was blind the owner ought to have taken precautions to prevent it from straying on a public road, where there was a great deal of traf fic. The lord chief justice said there was clearly no evidence of negligence and judgment must be entered for the defendant, with costs. The other judges concurred, and the appeal was allowed.

Oh, sir, if you would only be kind enough to send him to us, how much we would be obliged to you.
