Dawson has just re turned from a month’s visit to Washington, where he went to look after some coal land cases in which he is attorney. “I believe the new secretary of the interior, who is the chief pabinet member so far as the West is concerned, will be more favorably disposed toward the ir. e ests of the West than was Secretary Fisher,” he said last night. “Mr. Lane, has a better con ception of what the West wants than had his predecessor, and, I am inclined to believe, will try to soften some of the rulings of the department as to the man agement of the lands in this part of the country. “Fisher went to far in_ many of his Jrulings and policies and while I do not anticipate any great change in the conservation policies of the department, I do expect a modification of much'of the harshness of the administra tion of the last secretary.”— Denver Times.

DRY FARMING HAS PAID Back 80 per Cent Of Big Loans The annual meeting bf the Commercial Investment company organized last year for thfe pur pose of loaning money to the farmers in the eartern part of | the state to tide them over a bad season, will be held at the Cham ber of Commerce building. This was a stock company and many of the members who subscribed did so with the belief that it would prove to be charity work. Much to the surprise of the offi cers, the plan proved to have been one of’unusual merit and of the SIO,OOO loaned out, 90 per cent has been repaid and'it is believed a greater part of the other 10 per cent will be paid in time. After paying all the expenses of the there will be 80 per cent to return to the stockholders and they anticipate a fair amount of the balance. The financial assistance ren dered was of great value to the dry farming sections and the fact that so large"a per centage has been repaid shows that the farmers were successful with their year’s work. While the ex periment was for but one year, it js understood a movement will be put on foot to make the plan a permanent thing and that this or a new company will engage in the business of loaning money to farmers in sections where they are most in need of finan cial assistance.—Denver Times. Political Pull Cuts No Figure With President WASHINGTON, March 21—Disap pointment is the daily guest of the dem ocratic senators and represenatives who are working to secure appointments for party workers witiiout due regards to their litness for the employment sought. Woodrow Wilson apparently is outdoing Grover Cleveland in his attempts to keep the oiiices away from the spoilsmen, Tlie president forced tho lighting against reduction in the senate, but he has not been compelled to force the lighting in the office seeking matter, simply because thus far the men who want offices for others have refused to light, holding harmony and the party future to l>e tilings superior to present promises of goverment jobs. Outside of the appointments to cabi net positions President Wilson thus far lias named only a baker’s dozen of men to office. Only two of these appointees were backed by strong po iticul pull and congressional influence Senators Stone and lieed of Mis- ■ sourl asked that Alexander M. Dock ery be given the place of third assis tant postmaster general, and Mr. Dockery was appointed. Tills seem ingly was almost wholly a political appointment, and tne naming of John I Blakesly us fourth assistant post master general through the intluence of A Litcholl Palmer, of Pennsylvania was an appointment of like nature. The post office department ordinari ly is tlie one which suffers from poli tics. Tile postmaster general nearly always is a man who has done valued service in tho preceding campaign. Mr. Burleson.was a Wilson man from the start, and his start kept him going not only through the conven- I tion preliminaries but through the ! convention itself and tho campaign ■ which followed. The postmaster general, however | has suid that his office is to stand as firmly upon a civil service basis as it 1 can be made to stand The appointment of fonnsr Gover- | nor John Burke of North Dakota as ; treasurer of the United States has been held by some as a purely political ap pointment. It may bo of interest to those who so hold to know that tlie president ! does not regard it in that light. He j hud been asked to appoint the Dako- j tan to this place, but it can be said on 1 seemingly proper authority that he had made up his mind that tho former j governor was the man for the place before any one liud made application in his behalf. In the matter of ambassadorships the president has refrained from con sulting the politicians as to their likes and dislikes. He wants to satisfy Mr. ; Bryan, of course, because Mr. Bryan ! will have to do with the ambassadors 1 and it can be taken for grunted that no one will be appointed uguinst J whom the secretary of state enters ob jection. It is said that the president will en deavor to make sure, of course, that any man wiiom he names for a foreign j mission will be certain of conlirma- i tion by the Senate. John Skelton Williams, of Rich mond, Vs., was made assistant secre tary of the treasury without any con sultation whatever with the politicians Even the senators from Mr. Williams home state did not know his name was under consideration. B. T. Galloway was appointed as sistant secretary of agriculture on the recommendation i / Secretary Houston There were live other candidates for the place besides Mr. Galloway, who, however, could hardly be called a can didate, because he did not make his desire for the job known in any way, except by mere statement that he would like the place. Most of the ap plicants had political influence buck of them. Franklin K. Lane was taken from the commission to be made a member of the cabinet. Mr. Wilson nominated James Marble, the commissioners sec retary, to fill the vacant pi ace made by Mr. Lanes promotion. There was no politics nor' political inlluence in the Marble appointment. “HIS FEAR, NOT KISS, MADE ME KILL MAN IN MY WIFE’S ROOM” Burlington, Colo., March 22 “My wife put on her nightgown, 1(9 scratch ed on the door, entered, took uiy wife In his antis and fondled- and hugged her. They kissed. Then I shot be cause he ran when I stepjied out. He was a coward.” Tliis story of Frank Schlyer, who crazed by gossip that N. 3. Allen, proprietor of the hotel at Flagler,” Colorado was employing Mrs. Schlyer as a cook in order to visit her unham pered in his hotel, killed Allen last night, lias aroused a wave of sympa thy for tiie slayer throughout Kit Car son County. • Schlyer hid in liis wife's room dt tiie Flugler hotel, watched the love making for an instant, stepped out from behind tiie dresser, drawing ills revolver. “He started to run and I called Halt!” Schlyer says. “He kept on running and I said as Hired: If you are going to act like a dog I’ll shoot you like I would a dog.” , “When I entered tiie room I natu rally expected to kill somebody or get killed if I found conditions as they were rumored.” Following is tiie statement made by Schlyer in jail, where he fuces a mur der cimrge: “I proved up on my quarter section of land, which is about ten miles sou th of Vona, last Monday. While we .endured many hardships, my wife and I have lived there happily together for three years or more jintil Novem ber 28. On account of needing clothes and money, my wife went to Flagler to cook for Allen, who runs a hotel ' at that place. “I began to get rumors -about six' weeks ago that all was not right, a't this hotel, and was told "that if I re spected my wife I had better take her away from there. Last Sunday I vis ited my wife and tried to persuade her to come home, telling her that our children, two boys, 10 and 12 years old, needed her at home, that I had my spring work to do and that stie was needed more at home than she was at Flagler. “She ridiculed me and laughed at ine und asked what I would do if she should refuse to tome home. I told her there was no law to force her to, come, that I knew of, but that it was her duty. While in Flagler I heard through friends that lie was not treat ing her as lie should a cook. “it worried me so I could not work or sleep at home. Friday l made up my mind to find out liow true these ru mors were. I went to Flagler hid my self behind my wife’s dressing case in her room. “About 8:30 my wife entered the room, undressed and put on a night gown. In a few minutes some one scratched on the door and she opened it. Allen entered the room. He took my wife in his arms and began loving and kissing her. When it had gor.e this far 1 could stand it no longer. I stepped out from behind the dressing case. Allen staitsd to run and Ii al d him to halt, he paid no attention but kept on running. I said if you are going to act like a dog I will shoot you like a dog, or words to that ef fect, pulled my revolver and shot him, “I have always been good to my wife, have done my best to provide for her. I neither drink nor use to bacco in any form, have always help ed her with the housework or had the boys belli her. In fact, I think the trouble is that I have been to good to her in humoring her in all whims and . requests. “When I entered that room I. natu rally expected to get killed or to kill somebody if I found conditions as they were rumored.” Allen did not bear a good reputa tion and _ was arrested a short time ago for selling whiskey in his hotel Allen’s wife left him some time ago. Schlyer is the first man to have en tered the Kit Carson county jail on a murder charge. Schlyer walked into tiie hotel office immediately after the shooting and gave himself up to the sheriff, who was summoned. The scene of the killing is 110 miles east of Colorado Springs in a dry farming settlement. Schlyer is 32 years of age. His.wife is a few years younger. A direct information will be filed against Schlyer ' charging murder ,by district attorney, M. W. Purcell.—Rocky Mountain News.
