IRRIGATION AND TIMBER SUPPLY Practical Subjects of Import ance to Jtho West Dis cussed by Scientists. WASHINGTON, D. C, J.an. 2.—The American association for the advance ment of science today agreed to re quest President Roosevelt to appoint a physician as a member of the isthmian canal commission. A committee was appointed to sec-ure a memorial to Dr. Reed, the army surgecn, who perform ed notable work in improving the sani tary conditions in Cuba. The feature of the sessions of the section on social and economic science was a review of the work of the vari ous bureaus of the department of agriculture by their chiefs. Prof. Wil lis, chief of the weather bureau, said that it cost $},250,G0C a year to make the forecast,- that the frost warnings of a few days ago in Florida saved millions of dollars tc the people of that state, and the forewarning of a sinele cold wave recently saved shippers $4 - 000,000. In a paper oil the sociological aspects of the irrigation problem, Giiy E. Mitchell expressed the opini.m that the reclamation of arid lands of America through government construction of ir rigation works would furnish for years to come an effective outlet for the in dustrious surplus population of our great cities. The Irrigation of the 100, --000,000 acres plains and valleys, he said, will tend to make the small farms and homes a general rule throughout the entire country. Prof. B. E. .Pemow, of the agricul tural department, discussing the tim ber supply outlook in the United States, said that a calculation of the I present stand of virgin timber in the United States ready; to supply the de mand for lumber, showed the improba-' bility, if not the impossibility, of the United States meeting the increasing demand for lumber another thirty years, under present methods of utili zation. Even if the entire forest area of 500,000,000 acres were still fully stocked with the average stand to the acre, as reported by the census in the holdings of lumbermen — an absurd proposition—the stock on hand would be exhausted within that period. In a paper on the economic value of the remaining public land. J. D. Whelp ley said that net another acre of public ! lands should be sold fcr cash or its equivalent. Residence and cultivation should be required before land couid be obtained and this residence and culti vation should be at least five years, so as to insure a permanent and not a speculative interest in the holding-. Dr. H. Weily, chief of the chemistry bureau of the depa7-tment of agricul ture, in a paper said the work of his bureau had resulted in the enactment i of state laws which .saved farmers mil lions of dollars by preventing frauds in connection with the saie of fertilizers. Dr.' Weily said that our wheat and cereal supply always will be adequate to our growth. Scientific stock feeding had made it possible fcr a stock raiser to prepare an animal for the market for one-third ioss than formerly . Prof. F. T. Galloway, chief of the bu reau of plant industry, said a new orange had been created in Florida which bids fair to build up a new mar malade industry. -._■ I Today was practically the last day of the work of the .association, though there are various odds and ends to be finished tomorrow. The total registra tion of members at the present meeting was 078. with one exception the largest in the history of the association. I At today's meeting of the Geological I Society of the United States, one of the affiliated societies to the association, addresses were made on the subject of volcanoes in the. West Indies by those ■ who were on the scene at Mount Pelee. Papers were read by R. T. Hill, J. W. I Spencer, Angelo Heilprin, I. C. Russell, G. C. Curtis, Percifor Frazer and E. O. Hovey. Prof. Russell held that the principal cause of death during the eruptions of Mount Pelee and La Sou friere was steam, charged with dust. Bret Harte Left But Little. LONDON.

THE NEW ARMY UNIFORM IN DETAIL Large Number of Changes Which Have Already Be come Regulations. WASHINGTON, D. C, Jan. 2.—The war department has made public the report of the uniform board, headed by Gen. Young, of which Col. Patten is the recorder, setting out in detail the changes made in the army uniform. The first recommendation is that of ficers on duty in Washington be re quired to wear their uniforms during office hours. Other recommendations, all of which have been parroved and are consequently now army regulations, provide fcr the substitution of bronze sleeve ornaments for those of em broidery, and metal for full dress. Chaplains are to wear black over coats. The embroidered gold oak leaves on officers' visors must come off, except on ranks above that of major. The United States coat of arms in gold is to be added to all shoulder knots of officers above captains. An important change is the abolition cf the chapeau, the service helmet and service cap fcr officers, and the serv ice trousers for enlisted men. Provi sion is made for a combination sash and belt for brigadier generals. A sig nificant recommendation calls for a more detailed description of the shoes to be worn by officers, for it is rumor ed that the board's labors were begun as a result of the detection of an officer otherwise properly uniformed, in full I dress, wearing a pair of russet shoes. Hereafter chevrons are to be worn midway on the sleeve, betw-een the elbow and the shoulders. Belts and cartridge cases are to be worn outside the overcoat. A march ing shoe will be provided for the men, and the bureau of insular affairs will have a device. AUSTRIA-HUNGARY PUTTING TARIFFS UP Rates That Will Affect the United States and Great Britain Seriously. VIENNA, Jan. 2. —Increased tariff du ties on both grain and iniuHuaetured ar ticles are the important, features of the new ausglt-ich. which, it is learned, is of a highly protectionist character. The duties on both grain and manu factured articles will be considerably in creased, which is likely to seriously affect both the United States and Great Britain, who are respectively the third and sec ond largest exporters of manufactured articles to Austria, it is thought here that Great Britain will be the greater suf ferer, since thte United States is better able to protest hers^.* by adopting re taliatory measures. The term of the new ausgleich has been fixed at ten years. Indicating that commercial treaties, which tfill be based or. this new tariff agreement, will be con cluded for a like period. The agree ment is the result of compromises on the part of both Austria and Hungary. BERLIN. Jan. 2.—The Commercial Treaty society has issued a circular com plaining of the United States customs treatment' of German goods. It says: "It is quite characteristic that this tariff annoyance has not been applied to English or Belgian, but exclusively to German goods. There Is a system in the matter. It answers the new German tariff which strikes at leading articles of American export with extraordinary severity. We have every reason to com plain of American tariff treatment and customs practices, but the course adopted by Germany is likely to have the opposite affect from that wished."

DIFFICULTY ATTEND ED THE LAYING OF CABLE Steamer Silvertown Had a Tempestuous Voyage to Honolulu—But Her Mis sion Was Performed Suc cessfully and Cable Will Open for Business Jan. 5. HONOLULU, Jan. 2 (by Pacific cable). —The laying of the ftsst sec tion of the Pacific cable which will connect the United States with its insular possessions was completed at 8:40 last night, when the two ends were brought together in Molokai channel near the point of landing at the beautiful private park of San 3 Souci beach, five miles east of the city cf Honolulu. With the shore end landed there still remained a span of almost two score of miles to be clcsei between the buoyed deep sea end in Molokai channel.and the heavy beach line laid a half mile out from shore. The closing of this gap proved a task that taxed the patience as well as the ingenuity of the Silvertown's. staff. Five days elapsed, the most of which was spent in awaiting: the favor of the wind and sea before their labors were completed and the first signal flashed along the entire length of 2,000 ajid more miles. Voyage Was Exciting. The voyage of the Silvertown was eventful, and at times unpleasantly ex citing-. Twelve hours out from San Francisco the cableship was beset by bad weather which continued, with the exception of one day, to the end of the voyage. Variable "winds that at times approached the velocity of gales; heavy seas that buffeted her about, retarded the progress as well as en dangered the safety of the cable; in fact every adverse condition that is usually encountered in the laying of a cable was met with and at times mads the task a most hazardous one. The start from San Francisco was made at 12:30 on Monday morning, Dec. 15. The favorable conditions con tinued until n o'clock on the morning of that date, when the vessel ran into a squall of wind and rain that came out of the west. Steering through a southwesterly course, the Silvertown offered a broad star beam to the storm. Son the seas were whipped into con fusion, rolling the vessel in a manner most dangerous to the cable. The velocity of the wind increased, and early in the afternoon great green seas boarded the starboard bow and swept along the deck and escaped into the sea through the port scuppers. Toward evening ropes were strapped about the deck and everything was made fast. Anxious Hours. The rain ceased, but. the storm con tinued with unabated fora* throughout the night. These were anxious hours for those in charge of the safety of the cable. Two courses were left to them — either keep on the through course, or cut and buoy the line. Both were fraught with great danger. A devia tion from the course was obviously out of the question, as much for the rea son that such action would not have lessened the strain upon the cable as the more important consideration of the waste of time and danger of get ting into unknown depths. To cut and buoy the cable would have been equally dangerous. Even one of the great buoys, carried for just such emergen cies, could scarcely have weathered the storm with 2,500 fathoms of cable, weighing five tons, tugging at it. All chances were carefully weighed and the vessel's bow was kept to the southwest. Tuesday, the loth, brought no improvement in the weather condi tions. The wind continued to blow great blasts from the west and the sea constantly bombarded the big ship's starboard beam. One particularly heavy sea boarded the starboard bow and swept the deck from fore to aft, smashed the scullery light and broke the gangway ladder. The chart rooms on the hurricane deck were flooded and the bridge itself was invaded at times by the turbulent seas. Those at work in the paying-out room on the main deck and about the cable machinery waded in water to the knees. A Few Casualties. The companion ways were battened down In order to prevent the flooding of the saloon. One of the cooks of the gallery was scalded by a cauldron of spilled soup. The saloon steward was hurled against a door and severely bruised and injured. At times the ship rolled terribly and it seemed that the great strain would prove disastrous to the cable. Under ordinary conditions the line Is paid out several per cent faster than the speed of the vessel. This was increased during the storm to 10. This concession to the strain was terrific. As the ship lifted and lurched the great drum around which the strand was passing would almost cease to revolve one moment only to resume with a rush the next, rendering the life of the men in the tanks a probable, if not a real, hazard. The dynamometer regulating the speed and the strain on the line at such times fluctuated wildly, rushing from an indicated strain of two tons or less up to four and even five tons. When it is uriderstoG^that the break ing strain is eight an^l three-quarters tons, it must be apparent that failure to relieve the strain promptly meant -disaster to the previous line and its loss in 2,500 fathoms would have meant a long and serious deJay in the com pletion of the work of laying the cable, as well as being a moat expensive hap pening to the contracting company. Rare good judgment in tlie handling of both th"c ship and the cable at these crucial times averted an accident. Buoying the Sea End. The wind abated tit noon on Tues day-, but the seas continued with a heavy swell that ran counter to the ship"s course. On ■ Wednesday the weather improved apcl everything ran smoothly and fair progress was record ed. Sunday was notable for two things, the crossing of the Van^buver-Austra lian cable at 4 o'clock iri the morning, and the receipt of the first news from San Francisco. Considerable stormy weather followed. Between 2 and 3' o'clock Tuesday morning three soundings were taken, and preparations were made to buoy the sea end. The operation prove% a most difficult one, owing to the motion of the vessel, which at times rolled to the angle of 43 degrees. It was with difficulty that the line was made fast to the cable and the end buoyed. Word was given to cut the line at 5:20, and as the six-inch manila hawser was cut with the knife it parted with a snap. So great was the strain upon it that friction caused it to take fire as it pass ed over the sheaves at tiie stern, and the sparsk scattered about the deck in a pyrotechnic display. The buoy was jerked '. overboard with terrific force, Continued on Third Page* . MASGACNI IS WRITING A BOOK Composer Decides to Adopt Modern Method of Aveng ing His Wrongs. Special to The Globe. CHICAGO, Jan. 2.—Composer Mas cagni has adopted the modern method of avenging his wrongs. He is writ ing a book. Three days after his ac quittal of the charge of embezzle ment, with the memory of his injuries yet fresh, he began today to tell in words that should burn the story of his troubles. The title of his book is yet to be determined upon, tout from some of the extracts that were given out by him it is thought the work may be called "My American Odyssey." "The vicissitudes of my American Odyssey have been many," he writes, "but it is not the American people who have wrought havoc with my peace, who have done me so much wrong. Proofs of sympathy, even of affection, have been received by me from the people as a whole through their best representatives. But my executioners—moral assassins, who have no right to country—have been repudiated and should be shunned by all civilized people. They have filled my way with pitfalls, struck at me in the dark, robbed me of money and the credit due me, and now would steal away my honor.

WAS SHE POISONED ACCIDENTALLY? Last Hours of the Trial of a Girl for Alleged Murder. ALEDO, 111., Jan. 2.—The fate of Tona Dunlap, charged with the murder of Allie Dool, was submitted to the jury tonight. The case is an out growth of a tragedy that has excited the people of this community since early last summer. Allie Dool, clerk in a general store here, died suddenly after eating choco late candies that had been given her by Miss Dunlap. It was proved that she died of strychnine poisoning and charges were made that the poison was administered by Miss Dunlap. A cor oner's jury, however, exonerated Miss Dunlap, and thus the matter was al lowed to rest until late in the fall, when an indictment was returned against Miss Dunlap. Her trial fol lowed. The only motive alleged by the pros ecution was that Miss Dunlap hoped to succeed Miss Dool in the store clerk ship, a position paying only $5 a week. It was proved that Miss Dunlap had purchased strychnine from a druggist, but the young woman testified, and in this was corroborated by her moth er, sister and brother, that she had bought the poison and used it as a corn remedy. . The prosecution proved that the chocolate candies contained poison and that Miss Dunlap gave them to Miss Dool was admitted. The testimony al so developed that Miss Dunlap and another young woman had eaten can dies taken from the same paper bag and that neither suffered injury. Miss Dunlap has stoutly maintained her innocence and her lawyers have tried to establish a theory of accidental poisoning. Rumors have been current concern ing statements alleged to have been made by a juror prior to his accept ance, but nothing of an authentic nature can be learned. The juror in question is said to have told a friend he "would either hang Tona Dunlap ox hang the jury" should he be chosen as a juror. JOINT STATEHOOD FOR NEW MEXICO AND ARIZONA Democratic Chairman Hopewell, of the Former, Favors the Plan. SANTA FE, N. M.. Jan. 2.— W. S. Hopewell, chairman of the territorial cen tral committee of the Democratic party of New Mexico, today announced himself in favor of admitting- Arizona and New Mexico as one state. with three repre sentatives in congress, the capital to be fixed for ten years at Santa Pe. He has just returned from Chicago, where he had an interview with Senator W. H. Cousin, a close friend of Senator Quay, and his announcement today in favor of the joint statehood was taken to represent the views of Senator Quay in case it should not be practicable to force the omnibus statehood bill through the senate. President Roosevelt also declared to New Mexico workers for statehood that he is in favor of the joint statehood for Arizona and New Mexico. Mr. Hopewell says a bill effecting the merging of thg two territories into one state will be in troduced, probably next week.

HENNEPIN DELEGATION ABROGATES UNIT RULE CAVE-IN SWALLOWS UP BUILDINGS Hotel and Three Other Struc tures Fall Into an Aban doned Colliery. SCRANTON, Pa., Jan. 2.—Abandon ed workings of the Eddy Creek col liery of the Delaware & Hudson com pany, beneath the very heart of the town of Olyphant, caved in this after noon and engulfed four frame build ings covering: an aggregate ground space of 6,000 square feet. The set tling was gradual and people in the affected territory escaped. In a half hour O'Brien's three story hotel, Mrs. Ann Evans' double dwel ling, Mrs. Jane Ackerly's double store building and a one-story barter shop were ground to debris in the yawn ing pit, with the uppermost part of the mound forty feet below the sur face. O'Brien's hotel, which plunged first into the opening, entirely disap peared. A few houses are projecting over the edge of the pit. The vein that caved in is 115 feet below the surface. The settling started in the street just in front of the hotel prop erty. The brick pavement was seen to be working, and the telegraph poles and trees along the curb were noticed to be wobbling. Twenty minutes after the disturb ance was first noticed the opening had widened until it reached across the street and half way beneath the hotel. Then the building pitched forward, turned over and landed on its roof in the bottom of the abyss.

CHICAGO, Jan. 2.—Mess pork is be lieved tc have been caught in a corner, and the price is expected to go up. The traders on the Board of Trade were ex cited over the situation today. Those who were short on this commodity were scurrying to get to cover. The price looked for is $20 a barrel. John Cudahy is believed to be the one who is "long." According- to the best information, it was said he had about 25,000 barrels, and that only 10, --000 more were available for January delivery. The supply of pork is not large, and this gives currency to the belief that Mr. Cudahy made a success ful manipulation. The price of Janu ary pork advanced only 50 cents a bar rel today over the price of last Wed nesday. It is believed to he a part of the plan to deal out a little of the commodity now and then to keep the market from advancing too rapidly until it is too late for a further delivery for January.

Minneapolis Contingent Re scinds Resolutions Expect ed to Hold Delegation Solid for Johnson — Bab cock Men Construe Action as Insuring Their Success -Quest for a Third Can didate. The Hennepin delegation yesterday afternoon abrogated the unit rufe, rn der which it was hoped to hold it solid for Lawrence H. Johnson, the Minne apolis candidate for speaker. The abrogation of the unit rule by the Hennepin delegation is considered by the Babcock people as sealing the fate of Johnson and insuring the elec tion of the Wadena man. The Johnson leaders claim that the only effect of the abrogation is the release of four mem bers of the delegation who would not vote for Johnson under any circum stances, and that they still have a ma jority of the delegation. The administration or state central committee strikers, while willing to ad mit that the disintegration of the Hen nepin delegation means the defeat of Johnson, insist that it will result in the entry and election of a third candidate. W. C. Fraser, of Rochester, a Johnson man, yesterday sprung into prominence as the Moses selected to lead the scat tered speakership forces to victory, but so far Mr. Fraser has declined to al low his name to be presented to the caucus, and impartial observers are in sistent in the claim that a dark horse cannot get in the race. Seek Third Candidate. Before the meeting of the Hennepin delegation it was generally conceded that the fate of the Hennepin county man rested on his ability to defeat the movement for abrogation of the,unit rule. One of the avowed Johnson or gans declared that a third candidate must be brought out to save the party, and a Minneapolis Johnson organ an ticipated the action of the caucus by lacing into the state central committee for its interference with the speaker ship row, and charging the politicians surrounding the governor with causing the defeat of the Hennepin county man by dragging false issues into the speak ership contest. The meeting of the Hennepin dele gation was secured by the Babcock men. During the morning' it was ru mored that the Johnson men would re fuse to attend, and that they would make a strenuous effort to prevent tht* attendance of a majority. The better politicians evidently pointed out tha suicidal effect of such a policy, and the possibility of staying off disaster by a full attendance. Bard well and Nolan were not present, but their proxies were held by Halliwell and Fosseen. respectively. Vote Was Decisive. There was no attempt to consider any business other than the abrosa tion of the unit rule. The vote wus 9 to 6 in favor of the proposition, and vii motion of one of the Johnson men was made unanimous. Based on the assumption that the Johnson organs were correctly inform ed when advancing the statement that Johnson's election depended upon his ability to hold the Hennepin delega ation to the unit rule, the action of the caucus is considered by the politicians not directly interested as insuring "the defeat of the Hennepin candidate. One of the Babcock men on the Hennepin delegation stated after the caucus that the original purpose of the meeting did not, in any sense, involve the indorse ment of any candidate, but it was de signed simply to show who was in con trol. Prior to the meeting Minneapo lis men were of the opinion that abro gation of the unit rule would result in throwing the votes of Deming, Fosseen. Smith and Bardwell to Bob^ock, and thereby insure him a majority of the delegation, as Armstrong, Stevenson. Fryberger and Nolan have been with the Waiena man from the start. SimpTy to Show Strength. George W. Armstrong, one of the Babcock leaders on the Hennepin dele gation, yesterday said a meeting to re lease the members from the unit rule was unnecessary. He based his asser tion on an alleged failure of agreement. Armstrong says that when the Henne pin delegation indorsed Jchnscn, it was Avith the understanding- that the First district delegation was to mount the Johnson band wagon the same day, and that, also contingent on the First's in dorsement, an adjourned meeting was to be called the following Monday. The adjourned meeting has never been call ed, which failure Armstrong considercl a breach of pledge and a release. While some of the erstwhile Johnson organs are clamoring for his withdraw al in favor of a dark horse, Johnson i 3 not so complaisant. It is several weeks since he expressed himself as une | quivocally opposed to a third candi | date movement, and he has within the last few days refused to be interviewed on the subject. But Johnson wishes to be speaker in the first person, and has takeir none too kindly to the attempt to throw him. The third-candidate men argue that Johnson will Indeed be un grateful if he will not consent, to throw his strength to a new man "after all Jamison has done for him," but ap parently Johnson cannot see how a great deal has been dene for him, if he is'not elected speaker. Some of Johnson's friends are in clined to ascribe the defection in the Hennepin delegation to the efforts of Congressman L*oren Fletcher, who they say is getting square fcr Jamison's op position to "Your Uncle" L.oren in the primaries and the resultant election of John Lind to congress from Henne pin. Governor's Myterious Hand. The actual effect of (low Van Sant's interest and advice in the speakershlp contest becomes, in light of yesterday's developments, a problem deep and mysterious. Members have been called into the governor's office, and executive light let into the speakership dark ness. Johnson organs have claimed that Gov. Van Sant* has -nade it plain he wants Johnson elected. Others, that he has made it plain that the electton of Babcock would be construed as an affront to him. Yet yesterday after noon members of the Henenpin delega tion v.-ent ZKfir.i the governor's office to the caucus and^ voted for abrogation of Continued on Third Page.
