WILL CONSIDER QUESTIONS OF MUCH INTEREST Members of the Commercial club wil meet in regular monthly session in the club rooms this evening at 8 o'clock to consider several important questions that will be introduced. Dr. X. G. Blalock will make a short talk favorable to an appropriation by con gress for the use of the Rivers and Harbors congress; and Professor W. D. Lyman is expected to read his report as a delegate to the last convention of the River.-; and Harbors congress held in Washington, D. C. In order to get the support of the club. Manager Edgar L. Smith, cf the Walla Walla Concert band, will make a short talk showing the advertising that would be seaured by Walla Wal la, could the band secure the position as one of the musical organizations employed by the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific exposition in Seattle, and the club will, in all probability, endorse the plan and take steps to interest exposition officials in the Concert band. The reputation made by the boys at the Spokane Apple show has been heralded throughout the Pacific north west, with the result that this city now has the reputation of having the best band west of the Rocky moun tains. Therefore, little difficulty is ex pected in securing for the boys a place on the concert program of the exposition. In addition to the important ques tions to come up for consideration, there will be the usual grist of routine business, and all members of the Commercial club are earnestly re quested to be present at tonight's i meeting. j Stoves Put Up and Blackened.

SHOOTS AT THIEVES LOCKED UP AS DRUNK Henry Herget was booked last night by Patrolman Buck on a drunk and disorderly charge. He was later re leased upon furnishing bonds and an explanation. Herget, it seems, keeps pigeons- at his home in little St. Petersburg and last night three neighbors thought they would put up a josh on him and get away with some birds. So while one went in and talked to the owner of the pigeons, the other two made a rum mage for bird meat. Herget heard them and rushed out with a gun. tak ing two shots at the fleeing invaders. He then became alarmed and came up town, where he begged Officer Buck to help him look for the dead man. Buck thought him drunk and locked him up. The affair is tangled up so that the officers do not know who is to blame and it will be threshed out in police court. Body Buried Here. The remains of W. J. Esteb, of Day ton. who died in that city yesterday, were shipped to this city this after noon and interment was immediately made in the city cemetery, funeral services having been held in Dayton.

Asked by Judge Black •)f Everett, if he had anything to say before sentence was pronounced Jahn, in a rambling speech lasting 15 minutes, attempted to justify the shooting by repeating the charge that li had been driven to desperation by the persecutions of the Prices, father and son; he complimented the judges and his attorneys., Hathaway & Als ton. and abused the special prosecutor, Eobcrt Hulbert, of Seattle.

Jan. 14. —Another step in the campaign against consumption in the United States will be taken next week, when the National association for the study and prevention of tuber culosis opens its fight against this dis ease in the island of Porto Rico. A traveling tuberculosis exhibit was shipped to San Juan a few days ago and will be used in a campaign about to be commenced. The exhibit will be shown first In San Juan, after which it will be taken to all of the important coast cities and also to many of the interior towns. As there are 6000 cases of tuberculosis among the million inhabitants of Porto Rico at the present time, the move ment promises much good. The Anti- Tuberculosis league of Porto Rico is cooperating with the national asso ciation, and has furnished a special physician who will' be director of the exhibition during its itinerary about the island. In connection with the ex hibit, numerous public meetings will be held. The exhibit is entirely in Spanish and was prepared in New York under the direction of the na tional association. The preliminary arrangements for the exhibition were made by Mrs. Al bert Norton Wood, the acting presi dent of the Porto Rico league, who was a delegte to the recent international congress on tuberculosis. The mem bership of the league includes most of the American residents and many prominent Porto Ricans. The exhibit to be used in Porto Rico is the third of its kind owned and con ducted by the national association for the study and prevention of tubercu losis. One cf the other two is at pres ent being used in a "'Ninety day Cam paign" in Florida. The other is be ing shown in Topeka. Kansas. After a three months' campaign in Porto Rico, the third exhibit will be carried to other Spanish-speaking parts of the West Indies and the United States. HOW WOOL MEN LOSE MONEY POCATELLO, Id., Jan. 14.—That the sheep men of the United States lose millions of dollars annually through the machinations of the mid dlemen is the statement of officials of the National Wood Growers' associa tion, which opened its forty-fifth an nual convention here today. Plans will be made at the present meeting to cir cumvent the commission men by es tablishing a national wool warehouse in Chicago or Omaha, with branches in all the wool manufacturing cen ters. where the fleece may be dis posed of at the best possible price and without paying immense profits to commission merchants. Sheep men from all over the country are here and a majority are enthusiastic in their adherence to the storage movement, which has already been tried out on a small scale with great success. The convention will extend through three days, the list of speakers includ ing George B. McCabe, solicitor of the department of agriculture at Wash ington: Fred W. Gooding of Shoshone, president of the association; Gov. Frank R. Gooding of Idaho. T. J. Walsh of Helena: Dr. J. M. Wilson of Douglas, Wyo.; A. J. Knoll'n of Chi cago; Francis Perry Elliot of Nash v" 11 e, Tenn.; Hon. A. B. Moss °f Pay ette: Hon. Peter G. Johnston of Black - foot: Col. E. J. Bell of Laramie. Wyo., and W. H. Manss of Chicago. Samuel Ballantyne, secretary of the Idaho Wool Growers' association, is a strong advocate of the warehouse sto rage plan. In speaking of the plan Mr. Ballantyne said: "This is a business proposition pure and simple. It is self-explanatory. The sole object is to eliminate tha middle men who have gotten immensely rich from the profits of our fleeces. We could bui'd this warehouse of ours out of solid gold hricks and pay for it in less than flva years from the profits we give these men. As was naturally expectcd they are trying to discourage the sheepmen in this undertaking They are not without making a fight, and today they are making offers on the next year's clip. The cause of the offers must be apparent to sheepmen; and if they can accomplish their pur pose growers can be assured that in the year's to come they will pay them well for it. "The sheep men of this state were sweat out of more than a million of dollars on their 100S clip. Most of us have not forgotten this experience yet, at least from a financ'al point of view. This million-dollar sweat was a very simple little 'stunt' on the part of the commission men. They formed a combine to all stay out of the mar ket until a certain day. Their agent 3 were sent here early in the season, and it was only w th the greatest con descension on their part that a grow er could even induce them to look at his wool. "The Omaha wool warehouse was a great success this year. Wools that the buyers offered but nine cents for at the corrals sold in Omaha for 17 1-2 cents. The Montana Wool Growers association has a wool warehouse in Philadelphia which has proven very successful. The Montana wool brought on an average of seven cents a pound more than the Idaho clip this year." Prescott is now Very Peaceful With the arrest of Lafferty and Mc- Lean, the two bud men of Prescott, the reign of terror that has been hang ing over that litle city, has. to all ap pearances. ceased. There is no longer a crowd of men on the strets swear ing and telling filthy stories in the pretence of women who pass and chil dren who hang near. For several weeks the trouble went on and Marshal Long of Prescott, was unable, it is said, to cope with the sit uation. Lafferty and McLean would dare him to come out and arret't them, and caller him all kinds of names. Finally the trouble became so serious that he sent fur Sheriff Haviland to arrest McLean, who was wanted for •shooting up the town. He had shot into the marshal's house and was get ting to be a real bad man. He hied to the country after awhile and told the marshal he would shoot the man who followed him. So Mr. Long sent for the sheriff to get him. The sheriff got him. Next day Lafferty got bad. And \\ hen Marshal Long could not arrest him, a little fellow came along and nabbed him. Then Lafferty got worse. But he was brought down here without any trouble. "It isn't the place, exactly, for the sheriff to interfere in cases of that kind; but I was sore when I found how those two fel'ows had been bulldozing the town." said Sheriff Haviland. I got busy and I think we have broken up the trouble. They were the leaders and I don't expect any more bad men to get bad again soon. If they do we'll get them, for we have the men here who can. I'll go out there every day but that I'll get that swearing and vulgar language on the streets stopped." INLAND EMPIRE TEACHERS COME HERE IN SPRING Arrangements are already being made by the county superintendent's office for the county teachers' insti tute that meets here during the week April 5 to 9; and for the meeting of the Inland Empire Teachers' associa tion that meets here at that time. Thi? county institute meets here reg ularly every spring and during the week it is meeting, schools of the county are dismissed for the spring vacation. State Superintendent Dewey will be present at that time and sev eral well known educators will be brought from other states. The meet ing is planned to be the best the coun ty has ever held. For the meeting of the Inland Em pire Teachers' association, which is to meet here on Thursday and Friday, April 8 and 9, it is hoped to have President Woodrow Wilson, of Prince ton university. Steveral othex well known educator s are to be here at that time and the meting is panned to be a good one. School teachers from the eastern portions of Washington and Oregon and northern Idaho, will be present, their schools being dismissed for the occasion. Church People Are Appreciative The following vote of thanks has been extended by the Park Street Baptist church to thoso who have made offers of assistance since the building was damaged by fire early Wednesday morning, making it im possible to continue the revival ser vices, which have been in progress for the past week. "The Park Street Baptist church in regular session assembled do by their vote desire in part to express the gratitude that they feel for the kind need that has been manifested to them in the disaster that has come upon them in the burning of the'r church edifice. "First.

P. Davis, and signed "R. C. Meyers, jr." His bill did not amount to the money the check called for and the difference was made up by Mr. Heisler in cash. The cash Davis got clear with amounted to something over $30. SPECIAL RATES GRANTED FOR HOMESEEKER3 Colonist rates, being on an average of $5 lower than those in effect last year, will be granted on all Harriman lines and connections for the months of March and April, and every indi cation points to a much larger busi ness than was recorded during the same period last year. The rates an nounced in the advance notices re ceived here grant a fare of $33 from Chicago, $53.50 from St. Louis, and $25 from all Missouri river points. The company is making prepara tions to care for the largest volume of transcontinental business ever trans acted, as it is thought many home seekers will com? west in the spring and remain at least until after the ex position in Seattle. However, the ma jority of those taking advantage of the low rates oome to this s<ct'on with the intention of locating, and it is fcr the accommodation of this class of patrons that the Harriman lines will carc for.

Mr. Windom was sent here at the request of south-side prop erty owners who felt they were not given a "fair shake" in the selection made by Special Agent McDowell, and npw that they have the opportunity to present their side of the case in detail they are taking advantage of it. Mr. Windom will reconsider the se 'ection previously made, and his re port to the department, will in all probability, close the chapter on fed- j Wolf.

"It is with great gratitude that we acknowledge these favors thus pub licly and hope that we may never have occasion to return such under similar conditions, but assure them that were it necessary the obligation would be as freely rendered." Until the repairs on the building are completed, the congregations of the First Baptist and the Park Street Baptist churches will unite in special services to be held in the First church. Rev.

North side property owners evidently feel secure in the belief that Mr. Win. dom's tour of inspection will not re sult in different recommendations t«> the department, and smi'es were in evidence when mention was made thai the south side of town was to get an other lead over the north side. It is understood that Mr. Windom has intimated to Walla Wallans that the fight being made between the north side and south side business men is but a repetition of those made in prac tically every city where such a site has been selected, sometimes Mr. Win dom being the special, and at other times Mr. McDowell following Mr. Windom. From all that can at this time be learned, the decision of the special agent will settle the controversy as far as local people are concerned, a* the inspection is being conducted in such a manner that neither side will have occasion to file charges of par tiality. The south-siders. nevertheless, feel that the appointment of a disin terested inspector is a signal victory, and they are making the best of their opportunity. Mr. Windom has appointments this afternoon to occupy all of his time, and it is doubtful whether he can com plete his work in time to leave to morrow evening as he had originally intended.

Like rain-pools over autumn leaves, My sweet love's eyes to me; Like sunlight over golden sheaves Her wind-blown tresses free; Like snow upon the mountain's face The whiteness of her throat; Her movements of the languorous grace Of Tillies all afloat.
