SEIL 20 MAIN STREET. THE MIND READER. Chesterfield, the Mind-Reader and Palmist, Goes "In a Few Days." Professor Grant Chesterfield yester- day interrupted his stream of patrons long enough to say: "Really, I cannot tell just when I shall leave town, but it will be in a few days from now. There is a batch of orders for written readings," and he pointed to a bunch of letters, plaster of paris casts and palmographs lying on the table. "I shall not be able to touch those short of several days' time. The date of de parture, however, will be announced through the Statesman." A large number 'of prominent citi zens passed through Prof. Chesterfield's parlors yesterday, the sexes being about equally divided. Of course they all had their palms read, and so far as could be learned, there was no instance of dissatisfaction. Some had certain oilments and their condition was cor rectly diagnosed and advice given as to what to do in order to recover health. Prof. Chesterfield's parlors are at the Coast House on Alder street, opposite the postoffice. They remain open un til 8 p. m., and the fee asked is« 50 cents for a life reading.

INSTILL NEW LOCAL FREIGHT TRAIN CONNECTIONS ARE NOW BEING MADE WITH FAST TRAIN FROM SPOKANE. A new time card went into effect yes terday on the Oregon Railroad & Nav igation company line which makes a few slight changes in the time of ar rival and departure of trains from Walla Walla. According to the new schedule. No. 7, the Spokane-Pendleton passenger train, arrives in Walla Walla from Spokane at 3:15 p. m., instead of 3:30 as formerly. The arriving time of No. 7 the pas senger from Pendleton remains the same, 10:50 a. m. No. 43, the mixed train making connections at Wallula with the Spokane flyer for Portland, leaves now at 9:30 p. m., thirty minutes later than the former departing time. There is no change in' the time of the arrival of No. 42 from Wallula. Commencing yesterday a local freight train was placed on the road between Walla Walla and Grange City. This train leaves Walla Walla at 5 o'clock p. m. and makes close con nections at Grange City with No. 22, the fast freight train between Spokane and Portland. This is an improvement in the freight service and will enable the Walla Walla shippers to get their freight to northern points much sooner than in the past.

SUCKED THROUGH PIPE. Ten-Year-Old Tumble* in Missouri'and Is Carried Under Workings of Dam. HELENA. Mont., May 21. —Carried through one of a half dozen eight-foot pipes, which are temporarily conveying the main channel of the Missouri river under the workings of the new dam. being constructed near here, was the experience of a 10-year-old boy named Potter, on Sunday. The boy was playing on one of the temporary structures above the dam, and slipped and fell in. Three hundred or more men working at the scene made frantic efforts to save him before he would be carried through the pipes, which are about forty feet long. The river is at high-water stage and when the boy was sucked into one of the pipes, all hope was abandoned. Boats were launched on the lower side and sent in pursuit. The body did not appear on the surface for some time, but was finally caught far below. The lad was uninjured beyond a few bruises received in being thrown againnst the sides of the pipe, he having had pres ence of mind to keep his mouth closed. This undoubtedly saved his life. WILL HHEIO MORE Bill Walla Walla Association Has Quit the Game. THE TEAM WILL BE DISBANDED LACK OF SUPPORT IS REASON AS- SIGNED BY STOCKHOLDERS ' FOR THEIR ACTION. It was officially announced this af ternoon that the Walla Walla Baseball association was no more and unless some other arrangements are made there will be no more baseball in Wal la Walla this season. The lack of patronage and indifference of the citi zens of Walla Walla is the cause as signed for the decision of Robert Burns, Thomas J. Einnis and George O'Connor, the stockholders of the association, to close up shop and ■ retire from the game. "It is with regret that we have de cided to quit," said Mr. Burns this af ternoon, "but we could not do other wise. TJie lack of patronage is the real cause for the action taken by the members of the association. It has been demonstrated that the people of Walla Walla are not interested enough fn the game to justify us in keeping the present team, and we do not feel like putting up any more money simply to furnish sport for a few fans who have attended the games. We have given Walla Walla a good team this season and while we have not won every game the team has been one of the fastest the city has had for many years." It was rumored this afternoon that probably the ball players on the tearh would endeavor to make arrangements to play several games this month. Un less some action is taken in a few days the grounds will be turned over to the owner and the fence and grand stand torn down. JUNK DEALERS HAVE TROUBLE M.

WALLA WALLA, WASHINGTON. coipmt elm com Rip ol Eminent Dnmain Granted Power Company. » VEHY IMPORTANT COURT DECISION CLEAR CUT RULING ON EXTENT TO WHICH PUBLIC CORPOR- In an opinion handed flown this morning, granting to the Centralia, Chehalis Electric Railway & Power company the right of eminent domain in condemnation proceedings for land needed for an impounding reservoir, the supreme court of Washington makes a ruling of far-reaching import ance to electric power projects in this state. Since the supreme court's decision in the so-called White River power cases, over a year ago, there has been a wide spread belief that the electric proposi tions would be confined in the exercise of the right of condemnation, practical ly, to railway rights-of-way alone. By reason of the former decision today's decision is of special interest. The Centralia, Chehalis Electric Railway & Power company, a corpor ation, was formed to operate a street railway in and between the two Lewis county cities. Its power will be ob tained from the Newaukum river. The company plans to erect a dam across the river between sixty or seventy-five feet high, which will at once create the necessary fall for water power pur poses and provide a storage basin which can be drawn upon during the dry season when the natural flow of the river may be insufficient to produce the required power. The dam, when constructed, will cause the water to back up and overflow a considerable area of land not now covered by water, a part of which belongs to the relator, Marion E. Harlan. Unable to buy Mr. Harlan's land, the street car company brought condemnation pro ceedings. The superior court of Lewis county held that the company had the right to condemn, from which judgment Mr. Harlan appealed to the supreme court by certiorari proceedings. This decision will enable the com pany to proceed with its plans. At the time the trial was had the com pany* had secured practically all of its right-of-way, but had no franchises at either Centralia or Chehalis. Its right to condemn was obtained on its good faith, shown by its diligence in ob taining rights-of#*vay and by applica tions for franchises. The decision is hailed by attorneys as a clear-cut rul ing on the extent to which the public corporations may go in condemnation proceedings for public uses on the proper showing. HE FORESEES HIS UNTIMELY END Douglas County Rancher Puts His Fears On Paper—Killed In a Well. Four days before death overtook him Ben Smith foresaw his end and com mitted his fears to paper. Smith was a homesteader 18 miles north of Cou lee. On the 11th inst. he addressed a letter to the county clerk of Douglas county stating he feared his end would come before he was through with a well he was digging. The note left direotions for the disposition of his effects an.l was left in his cabin, says a dispatch. On Tuesday, the violent death that Smith foresaw overtook him. Two heavy blasts of powder were heard from the well he was sinking, and as the settler was not seen about his place for some days neighbors inves tigated the matter. The well was partly full, and on being unwatered Smith's dismembered remains were found at the bottpm. Both legs and an arm were torn off by the explosion. A broken ladder gave the clew to th§ unfortunate man's death. It was evident that after lighting the fuses he started for the surface, only to be precipitated to the bottom of the shaft by the collapse of the ladder. The well was 16 feet deep, and if Smith was not stunned by the fall his to escape would have been hopeless. George Hall of Coulee City empan- ATIONS MAY GQ. To Construct High Dam.

MIKE CHM6E IN THE HOSPITAL CORPS LITTLE BROWN MAN'S IDEA OF SURGERY AMONG SOLDIERS PROVES SUCCESSFUL. LONDON, May 21—The Britiish mil itary authorities are seriously consider ing the suggestion of instructing the soldiers of the British army in the ele ments of "first aid to the injured." A strong appeal, based on the observa tions during the Russo-Japanese war, has been made, t,o bring about some much needed reform in the hospital service of the army and the plan has been warmly supported by many high medical authorities. ' At the recent thirty-fifth congress of the German Association of Surgeons, held in Berlin, several interesting de tails were discussed relating to war surgery. It is generally recognized that modern conditions of war are render ing it more and more difficult for mili tary surgeons to pursue their duties connected with first aid. It is said that the most efficient medical services ren dered during the Manchurian campaign were those performed by means of field hospitals erected along the line of com munication in the rear of the fighting lines. Reports laid before the congress by various authorities were unanimous in declaring that wounds resulting from shells were usually fatal. On the con clusion of the various Manchurian ac tions it was not uncommon for one doctor to attend one hundred and twenty or more cases. It is stated that seventy per cent of the soldiers wounded at Mukden had recovered and again resumed duty within three months of the action. This, of course, was owing to the hy gienie effects of the unusually small projectile used by the hostile armies. Dr. Schaefer, who obtained consider able experience in Manchuria, states that no less than 2,000 wounded were treated In one field hospital, and only ten of these were required to undergo operations. It appears to be unani mously agreed by medical authorities throughout the world that the system of first aid instruction now imparted to soldiers has been responsible for saving an enormous number of lives. Formerly many of the wounded were quietly permitted to bleed to death when even an elementary knowledge of anatomy and extemporized surgical ap pliances would have enabled their com rades to save them. Brete Harte'i Prediction. In the following poem the late Bret Harte, who wrote probably more than any one else on California, predicted some time ago a disaster overwhelm ing San Francisco which is of tinjely Interest on account of the Golden Gate City's recent devastation: PATE.

Jl STATUE OF JEFFERSON ill Be Erected in 3 Washington Public Park. SCULPTORS' DESI6NS IRE SECURED CONGRESS HAS AUTHORIZED EX- PENDITURE OF ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS. WASHINGTON, D. C., May 21.—Ar rangements have at last been made to obtain sculptors' designs for the stat ue of Thomas Jefferson which, by au thority of congress, is to be erected in one of the public parks here. The com mission charged with the work consists of Secretary Root and the chairmen of the house and senate committees on li brary, and a report has been made to the house by Secretary Root t"hat Au gust St. Gaudens has been obtained as sculptor, and that as soon as Mr. Gau dens' health permits a model will be prepared and submitted to congress. The delay has been due to the d<jath of Secretary Hay. the former chairman of the commission. Haste will be now made to have the staue finished. Authorization by congress of the ex penditure of $100,000 for a Jefferson statue is the result of long agitation by the admirers of the Monticello sage. The appropriation was provided for in the Sundry Civil appropriaitn act ap proved April 28, 1904. Senators Bacon of Georgia, and Daniel of Virginia, especially urged the appropriation. The argument was made that the gov ernment had never given proper rec ognition to Jefferson by a suitable me morial. A statue of Jefferson now stands in the rotunda of the capitol, but it was presented to the govern ment by a private individual. Commo dore Uriah P. Levy, who bought the Jefferson homestead af Monticello. The statue was executed by David D'Angers and is regarded as a masterpiece. It was placed, at one time, in the White House grounds, but was later removed to the capitol. Rains Extinguished Forest Fires. ESCANABA, Mich., May 21.—Rains have extinguished the forest fires.
