ODD THINGS ARE SEIZED Naval Marshal Tells About Inroads on Foe's Shipping During the War— Goods Sold Bring in $70,000, 000—250 Ships Taken. London.—When W. W. Jacobs wrote "Many Cargoes" he had no notion his Idea was :o be plagiarized, aud pla giarized by a great naval war at that. But wars—like women—have strange ways. And not thç least strange of them is the working of the department In time of history It was the duty of this highfalutlrig dignitary to ar range for and attend the execution of prisoners sentenced to Heath for .nur der on the high seas. And It Is on record that the marshal of the olden mirai Byng ; —a Brifish Commander, who was shot on his own qua rtérdeck, nf ships' goods. thtt marshal told a New York Sun reporter, amounted to $70.000,000, but this included goods seized under the blockade, which must be held pending the conclusion of peace. It was not possible to say what the amount of the prize fund would be. There was plenty of work for the prize court. time attended the' execution of Ad as a penalty for losing a battle. Times have changed. The modern marshal is Only a milk and water edition of his sterner prototype. He is the watch man, stevedore, caretaker and guar dian angel in chief of all German shipping that has fallen into allied hands during the war, and Incidentally, of the British naval prize fund, of which thousands of British Jack tars and their officers are how awaiting their share. The "Many Cargoes" to be divided vary from a priceless emerald to a tin kettle.. The gross proceeds of the sale 250 Ships Seized During War. "The president (Lord Phillimore) has sat every day since he was ap pointed, and there would to be appear quite another year's work before the court," said the marshal. "Including vessels seized in port upon the out break of war, which numbered over 100, about 250 ships have gone Into ray custody in the United Kingdom. Comparatively speaking, quite a small number of ships have been sold. The majority have been requisitioned by the government. "Hundreds of thousands of tons of goods of all descriptions—copper, aluminum, metals, wool, cotton, lard, oils and fats, coffee, cocoa, dried fruits, wheat, barley, hides, leather, tobacco, nitrates, zinc concentrates, diamonds, pearls, human hair, false teeth and many other things—all are among the prize captures." Producing two catalogues, the mar shal remarked ; "From these you can gain a good Idea of the various classes of goods seized in the letters and par cels malls, from precious stones to fry ing pans, printing paper, pottery, transfers, boots and shoes, boys' and . men's clothes and women's undercloth ing." Alluding to the quantities of bonds an<j securities. captured, he said the Interception of these securities proved a powerful lever In British hands, causing serious interruption of German trade and damage to German credit. Amusing Incident "An amusing Incident, marshal, "happened In the earliest dpys of the war, when upon a large enemy vessel, brought in by the navy, some alligators were found.

' Now if Editor Daily Star-Mirror, Moscow, Idaho. Dear Sir: I noticed a few days ago a topic on the expected railway thru Clearwater county touching Fraser, Weippe and Peirce, this railway could be extended and made to pass thru Clearwater county and to Missoula, Montana, the town of Lewiston would be on the railway line, the shortest distance from the east to Portland and Seattle. I have had occasion to be working in dif ferent parts of Clearwater county and have become very familiar with the natural conditions there. I believe if the railway was run up Fords creek to Weippe, then up the Grasshopper, across the divide and down the Salem gulch to Pierce it would be there upon the best grade. The grade thus far would raise about 300 feet in eighteen miles and then stay about on a level the other fourteen. From Pierce it would run up Rhodes creek across and down the Oro Grande to the north fork of the Clearwater It would then continue up the north fork to the mduth of Monroe river, up the Monroe to the mouth of the Cayuse, up the Cayuse to Loto pass and from thence down to Lolo hot springs. From Lolo hot springs you have your railroad to Missoula. ( The reason I believe _ the railway j should be situated thus is because of the ease in getting a uniform grade j and because it is in the heart of the great lumber and mineral resources of that section. Such a railway would pierce the heart of the greatest white pine belt. I Such a railroad would mean some- 1 thing tremendous for Lewiston and Moscow. As I have said before, Lew ■iston would be on the shortest cut from the east to Portland and Se attle. AH the products going to Spo river. Witter-Fishcr Co.

There are there millions of acres of burned over land from the 1910 fire on which there is nothing growing but the mountain grass. The Cayuse valley alone has over a hundred thousand acres to be grazed. This seems to me to be quite a project and a boon to Idaho. Sincerely yours, ALLEN F. SPACE, of Weippe. ( .
