During war times Mr. Bidwell was a newsboy In the latter elty, but has not been there before In thirty years. He went back to look over the old rout which he used to traval, and he said that the visit was very Interesting to him. In speaking of affairs In Washington, Mr. Bidwell said: "It Is the general understanding there th president will not sign the bill to place tlM Oregnry county land of the Rosebud reservation In South Dakota on the mar ket The reason given Is that th price which the bill namea for the land la un satisfactory to him. I do not believe Mr. Roosevelt Is unfavorable to the opening of thai portion of the reservation, but he things the land should be auctioned off to the klfhest bidder, so that the Indians may get all that Is due them, or, In other words, fsr price for the land. , "Tie auction plan, however, Is not gftv erallr favored, as I understand It, as It la believed there will be anywhere from 10, 000 t4 60,000 people on the ground when the reservation Is thrown open, and It would obvlOisly be Impossible to give a fair show to at these persons In case the land 1 auctltned. Owing to the fact that the mat ter has been so thoroughly dlscunpd by memlers in Washington, I believe that It will b posHlble, In case the president vetoes the bll, to draw another, the terms of which will be satisfactory to him, and have It pasted at this session.

OVERLOOK LIBRARY BUDGET Coaaellmea Omit Regnlar Item Tues day aad Make Haste to Atone for It. A special meeting of the council was called yesterday so that twenty-two women and girls In the public library might draw warranto for February wages. The total amount was 1868, and It had been omitted from the regular appropria tion ordinance passed Tuesday night. How the library force came to be over looked Is a mystery, and the mistake was rectified as soon as It was discovered. A sheet containing the names of the library employes was properly made out In the comptroller's office, but was lost during an Inspection of the papers. Consequently when the employes tried to gel their Feb ruary salaries Wednesday they failed, much to their surprise and consternation. Whllo no threats of a strike were heard, the chivalrous councllmen decided that It was up to them to "make gord" as soon as possible and so they got together Thur day morning and fixed matters.

The trial was not resumed until 10:10, at which time District Attorney Summers said to the court: "May it please your honor, the government tests." H. H. Claiborne, the defendant, told the story of his visit to station B with Assist ant Postmaster Woodard for the purpose of investigating the conditions In his ca pacity as 'a newspaper man. He did not know J. Albert Davis, nor was he ac quainted with Charles Grove, the superin tendent of the station. He had no Interest In the matter whatever except from a re porter's standpoint. He said: 'I made a personal examination of the window near the coal pile. I stepped on the coal pile to do so. but before I did so I noticed depressions In the coal pile about such as I made by stepping into It. 'I further noticed that the nail that had been used to secure the window from the Inside was bent down. I examined the In side window sill closely and stood on the coal pile to do so, as the window was about six feet from the floor. I think Mr. Woodard stood near the coal pile during the time I was making the examination I d'd not call Mr. Woodard' s attention to the depression nor to any of my observa tions about the window. There are four windows at the west end of the basement, and each have two lights." Rxamlne tho Safe, The defendant then related how they went upstairs to examine the safe. Mr. Wood ard preceded him. He did not remember that Grove was In the cellar with them. The three stood about the safe and were talking about the robbery; the safe was open at the time and Ihey were alt stooping down more or less during the examination. Subsequently while Mr. Grove and Mr. Woodard, wof9 between the snfe and, the stamp window, defendant said he opened the top drawer with the poker In order to satisfy himself that It could be done. The first time defendant's attention Was called to the fact that his testimony In the Davis case had been Impeached, was about a year afterwards when Mr. Sum mers notified htm that he had been Indicted for perjury. In the Interim he had never given the matter a thought. He had never been arraigned on the indictment other than to give bond for his appearance, which ho did. This trial Is the first proceedings In tho esse since the Indictment was found. Mr. Claiborne waa subjected to a rigid cross-examination by the district at torney, but his evidence was not shaken In the least. W. F. Ourley, the attorney for the de fense In the trial of 3. Albert Davta, said C'.alborno had no interest In the case. His reputation for veracity waa good. Saunters Won't Hear Witness. E. Rosewater testified as to Claiborne's reputation for truth and veracity. When asked If at the time the first Indictment was drawn against Claiborne it he (Mr. Rosewater) was not In Washington, May, ' the witness waa about to answer, when the district attorney objected. The question also waa asked of the witness If the relation between himself and Mr. Sum mers were not somewhat strained. -.The district attorney sgaln objected, and bo4h objections were sustained by tha court The Jurors In this case are: R. A. Fits Simmons, farmer, Hebron; Edward Jacobs, retired merchant, Madison; C. E. Williams, Stockman, Ogalalla; L. 8. Moa, retired bus! nesa man, Fremont; T. A. Baldwin, farmer, Blair; Perry O.

Even generous doses of dynamite were not of sufficient force to offset the violence of the wind of Wednesday right, so far as the controlling of tho ice In the river at the Whitney bridge at VaKey was con cerned, and the result was that in spite ot the combined efforts of a force of men and the use of considerable explosive, one span of the bridge war carried away and the whole structure placed In Imminent danger of floating off. The bridge was eighty-one spans, Is something over a half mile long and cost last year 813,600. The formation of the Ice In all the waters hereabouts this year la said to be very pe culiar and unusually trying to any struc ture with which It may come In contact owing to the fact that there are two layers or thicknesses of tee, one on top of the other, which give the floating cakes double the battering force that they ordinarily have. The scheme Is now contemplated of taking half a dosen more of the spans out of the bridge at Valley and thus form ing a channel through which the Ice may be allowed to run without damage. This would of course render the bridge unfit for use while the Ice Is running, but It Is said that It Is practically so now owing to the span which has been carried away and which cannot be replaced until tha water Is free of Ice.

Once upon a time to be exact, In 1840 an Englishman,, who was known ss a crank because he was a teetotaler, applied for a life Insurance policy from a London company. He thought that because of his abstinence from liquor be ought to be given a reduced premium rate. Instead, the com pany attempted to charge him an extra premium. It regarded him as a poor risk because he did not take a little wine for his stomach's sake. The outcome was that the Englishman In his wrath founded a new life Insurance Enough Said . NATIONAL BISCUIT COMPANY MORE STRICT ON BUILDERS company, the United Kingdom Temperance I iDBpeOl Or Falcooef 8tJ8 Coitraotors d and General Provident Institution. This company offered special advantages to tee totalers, and while It also Insured moderate drinkers It kept the two classes of policy holders sharply separate from one another. The officials of the company have steadily Insisted that their experience Justified the statemsnt that the teetotalers had better chances for long life than the moderate drinkers, but many life Insurance experts have doubted the truth of the assertion. Now, however, the actuary of the company has made an exhaustive ntudv of the facts, with results so convincing that even un friendly experts cannot gainsay them. The cases he examined were those of "whole-life" assurers,' the number being 28,000 abstainers and 82,000 nonabstalners. For nonabstalners the "expectation of life" Is shown to-be practically Identical with that, at corresponding ages, as shown by the latest mortality tables based on the combined experience of the British life companies. For the' abstainers, however. there Is shown an expectation that Is sub stantially 10 per cent better throughout the working years of life.1 For Instance, at 80 the nonabstalners ex- Ktells. r?M Wontwnrth In company with her cousin.
