Pinchot is preparing his state ment in his capacity as a private citizen. The work so far has been slow, as he has been constantly In terrupted by a stream of sympa thetic visitors, Who called to ex press their regret that he has left the government service.

Inquiries from these applicants ■how that a great majority of I hem have been here only a few days, having come from some of the nearby towns. Some come from t anada.

TO BE TREATED WELL "NO. 2814," GARBED IN BLUE UNIFORM, TAKES THINGS CALMLY. POEM WHICH MORSE TOOK TO PENITENTIARY Following is the poem 'invic tus," by W. E. Henley, which Charles W. Morse learned in the Tombs and which he took with him into the federal penitentiary at Atlanta: Out of the night that covers me, Black as the pit from pole to pole. I thank whatever gods there be For my unconquerable soul. In the fell clutch of circum stance I have not winced or cried aloud: Under the bludgeonings of fate My head is bloody but un bowed. It matters not how strait the gate, How charged with punishment the scroll; 1 am the master of my fate, 1 am the captain of my soul! ATLANTA, Ga., Jan. 10.—Ten minutes after the big steel door of the I'nited Status penitentiary here swung shut behind Charles w. Morse, but a few days ago a man of millions, he had censed to exist so cially. He had become convict No. 2814, and clad in an ill fitting suit of rough blue clothes, was marched into the big dining hall, and with negroes, Indians. Chinamen and whites of every condition, took his first meal under the roof that is to shut out his liberty for 15 years. He found placed before him jel lied bread, coffee, sugar and milk, lie could not eat, and that was the first sign he has permitted to es cape him of the terrific strain he has been under since he began in New York the journey to what is called his "life term." After walking through a crowd of morbid nnd curious with head erect. Morse was received by Warden Wil liam 11. Mover. To the latter he made a formal protest against his Incarceration, as he had been in structed to do by his counsel. Says He'll Be a Gentleman. in giving tiie prisoner his orders file warden said: "Mr. Morse, you have always been a gentleman in your behavior outside of this place. 1 am sure thai you will be so here." "You may be sure of that." was the quiet response, and then he was led away to be ha I bed, vaccinated and measured for the Itertillon rec ords. Then he was photographed and put in a reception o*ll until such time as he may he given a cell with another prisoner. Who this will be is not known, but the doub ling up Is necessary as the prison is overcrowded.

There's All Kinds of Ways' to Catch It, and Here Are a Few—Look Out for the 1 Big Dinner, and Don't Let Your Cold Run Along. The annual winter epidemic of colds, coughs and sneezing in Spo kane is in full blast. Thousands of people in Spokane are afflicted more or less severely. Though the winter months usher in the greatest suffering from colds. It is not weather itself that causes all the coughing. Two of the mildest win ters, IS9O and 1891, saw a great spread of influenza all bver the land. Many doctors are talking yet about the hard work they had in '91. Somebody once defined a cold as "a disease from which you didn't FUNNY OLD QUACK CURES Here are some old time cold remedies that doctors say will do more harm than good, al -1 hough they were in high favor a generation or so ago. BRIAR CURB—Qum from a cut in a briar bush, eaten, was once called a sure cold cure. STOCKING CURB — Remove stocking from foot and bind it around the neck when retiring at night. JELLY CURE—Jelly of black currants (never red currants) eaten three times a day. HERRING CURE —Wear salt herring in the shoes. This cure comes from Ireland. LIMB CURE —A small piece of lime allowed to slake on the tongue. ANTI-BILIOUS PILLS —Th's fake remedy i.as been exposed many times, but is still popular in rural districts. suffer much, but which took about six months to cure." Doctors themselves admit that the nature of colds varies with the individual. For instance, there are at least "d kinds of sore throat. Crowds in trains, churches, the theater, dance ball! and other crowded places are conducive to tiie spread of colds. Dance halls are one of the principal sources of coughing. Benjamin Franklin once wrote an essay on colds. Some of the things he said are good today. He pointed out that the weather alone could not cause colds and coughing. Turk ish bath attendants are in hot air one minute, and cold water the next) yet they do not take cold. Neither did the Indians, when they roamed through snow up to their necks. Colds and OOUghlng were unknown to them until the days of civilization. ' Overeating and Improper feeding are things that will make 'most anybody subject to the despised cough. There's been a lot of holi day overeating lately, and this may have caused the cold epidemic. Ever since old fashioned alman acs began to circulate, home rente dicH for colds have been tried, nut none of then is reliable. Any doc tor knowa this. When people begin to cough, as many in Spokane are doing now, they are laying the foundation for more trouble. If you have taken cold— Don't monkey with It. Don't let It run along.

This query interests three of Uncle Sam's most noted medical ex perts thes wintry days. Surgeons General George H. Torney of the army and P. M. Rixey of the navy have issued bulletins telling how to avoid colds. Surgeon General Wal ter Wyman of the public health and marine hospital service also has come out with a crusade against colds. Their work reveals the fact that no body of medical men will agree on just what causes people to be come victims of colds in various forms. While millions are coughing, the government is studying the var ious cures for influenza. The Floyd-Lucas treatment for' | had colds is being tried on the j j navy's hospital ships this winter. Mrs. Cleveland Floyd and William I P. Lucas of the Harvard Medical | j school were guided in their work by' Metehnikoff, the Russian germ ex pert. He believes that colds are caused Iby lack of white corpuscles in the : blood. When these leucocytes, as ! : they are called, are below standard, pneumonia will set in.

Bread, fish, vegetables, wh|te meat and eggs may be eaten, though. Or. Romme of Parle and Dr. Steinberg of Vienna indorse this colid cure. Still another cure comes from New York.

(By United Press) PORT COSTA, Cal., Jan. 10.—Joe Crowley, aged 10, charged with the murder of Mrs. Patrick Sullivan, mother of six children, presents the most perplexing problem to lo cal officers in this county's history. "Look out, Mrs. Sullivan; I'm going to shoot you," cried the little boy as he pointed a rusty revolver at the woman as she stood upon the railway platform. Mrs. Sulli van, half smiling, half frightened, started toward the boy to seize the weapon. The little fellow tight ened his grasp on the pistol, there was a loud report and a flash and the woman lunged forward, with a bullet in her brain. In a few min utes she was dead. The boy was frightened nearly to death. He had been playing with the revolver, along with half a dozen other boys, all yesterday aft ernoon. It was toward dusk when Mrs. Sullivan appeared and the lit tle fellow conceived the fatal plan of shooting her. Officers are trying to learn who is responsible for leaving a loaded revolver where it could be found by children. Major J. M. T. Partelo, a former champion crack shot of the army, has arrived at Fort Wright to take up his duties with the Twenty-fifth infantry. SIX JAPANESE 60IDES MARRIED ACCORDING TO BUDDHIST DUES IWANA TAHARA, ONE OF THE BRIDES. SEATTLE, Wash., Jan. 10.—Six little heathen Japanese girls, who sailed away from Japan a few months ago, have just become brides here. They were married ac cording to the rites of the Mud dhist religion, in Japan they hud become proxy wives of Japanese men in America, but proxy mar riages don't satisfy Uncle Sam. From Washington and California and other western states the bride grooms came to claim their brides. Ilev. Hoahln Fuji!, priest of a little BtlddhlSt temple, conducted the rites. And this is how they were married: V\ ith the bride standing on one side of the shrine and the bride groom on the other, in the presence of two witnesses, the priest made the proclamation of marriage be fore the god Buddha. Then follow ed the oaths. The only difference In the oaths is the order of the words love and respect. The husband swears first to respect, then love; the wife swears first to love and then re spect. Follow ing the oaths the five rules of conduct were laid down lor eauh: So they were married, and "for keeps." Divorces are un known among the Buddhist Japa EIGHTH YEAR, No. 54 10 CENTS PER WEEK S.

The congressional bee Is buzzinz in the cars of Justice 3. A. Mann, judge of the Spokane police court. The bee was set in motion by his friends and of late has been work ing harder than ever. Judge Mann has thus far resisted the importunities of his friends to make the race. He has the matter under consideration and there Is a strong probability that at the time the word is given Judge Mann will be among the entries in the great race. Judge Mann today, in response to the question of whether or not he would be a candidate, said: "When the matter was first broached to me I dismissed it with the statement that the place was for older heads in the political game. Hut the suggestions to en ter the race have continued to come until I am forced to give the matter serious consideration. "Should I conclude to enter the race you will find me standing close to the people and supporting men and measures that peonffe approve of. I coincide with the , statement in the Sunday Press that the next congressman from this district must be a progressive?, for none other will gain public support. "However, if I become a candi date I will announce ray views on public questions in due time." nese. Asked for the reason for few divorces, an attendant of the priest gave this explanation: "The marriage contract is very solemn, and is a contract not mere ly between the two young people. The marriage la arranged by their parents. Parents are older, they have more judgment and choose w itll greater w isdoiu. "In America your young people make the choice for themselves.

W, SPEED "fflpp!" whistled a bullet past the head of Charles Louden, would be Jail escape, this morning, and plunk fell Charles upon the earth, with all thoughts of freedom vanished from his brain. Emboldened by the near-escape of Pansner last Saturday, Louden seized the first opportunity to leave his sidewalk celaning companions and started across the lot north of the courthouse. Deputy Sheriff Max Anderson was on the Job, however, and three bullets which whistled perilously near the fugitive made him think better of his plans for flight and throw himself upon the ground to escape the fusilade of bullets. Lou den is still at work in the side walk gang, but drags around a couple of balls as mementos of his attempted flight. Louden was sentenced to three months in jail, a $250 fine and |75 costs by Judge J. Stanley Webster on November 2 for conspiracy. He and John Logan framed up a deal whereby J. L. McCrea bought a worthless moving picture machine upon the representation that he was to have a 32 weeks' job at $30 per week.

(Have you ever heard that statement be fore?) The local switchmen have received reports to the effect that the heads of the railway department of the American Federation of La bor are today In session at the Twin Cities and that news of a set tlement may be received. Although no definite reports have been sent out, it is believed thai the purpose of the meeting at the Twin Cities is to consider the re sults of the work of Chairman Per ham of the railway department, v ho has been at the national capi tal in an endeavor to bring about an agreement between the roads and the strikers. Local switchmen admit that tho result of the present conference will be either a settlement or a sympathetic strike on the part of the other railroad orders of the A. F. of L. The striking switchmen here place no credence in the reports that the roads will blacklist men who take part in the strike. It is believed that the announcement is enly a bluff on the part of the roaos to swing the strikers into line. THE NATION STANDS BT 0.
