INFATUATED WITH EASTMAN
ananaaaan(aa
Mri. Woodill Wrote Him' Lurid Love
Letter. Which is Pound.
EVIDENTLY KNEW HE! BEFORE
Woman Poors Forth Story of Her
Fatal Feeling; of Attachment to
Bankrupt Broker and
Fugitive.
ST. MICHAELS, Md., June 29.-The feel
ings entertained by Mrs. Edith May. Woodill
toward her slayer, "Lam. Bob" Eastman,
wer. Indicated In a letter signed "Edith,"
parts of which were found In the bungalow
of th. murderer and suicide.
The missive, which la In Mrs.' Woodlll's
handwriting, and couched lr most senti
mental language, was presumably sent to
Eastman. It not only Indicates a warm
attachment for the man, but seems ' to
prov. that she had known him at least a
year. On th. same paper In East man's
handwriting is the following:
"Little Dear: I cannot live after out
short of bliss with the coming of our
parting ever before me. If we meet In the
unknown, let's continue th. blissful times
that we spent here. I am with you In
vary thought"
Tells ef Her Love.
The lettor algned "Edith" contains the
following passages:
Is the Iron Immodest 'when It creeps tfi
the loadstone and clings to Its Bide? Is the
seed Immodest when It sinks Into the
ground with budding Ufa? . Is the cloud
rnM whan It softens Into rain an1 falls to
earth because it had no further choice, or
Is it brazen when It nestles on the bosom
of heaven's arched dome, and sinking Into
the blue-black Infinity ceases to be itself?
Is the human soul Immodest when, drawn
by a force it cannot resist, It seeks a
stronger soul which absorbs Its no. as
the blue sky absorbs a floating cloud, and
as the warm earth swells the sea as the
maznet draws the Iron?
I do not feel myself to be" bold' or wrong
for drifting toward you as I do. I would
not feel myself wrong to go straight to you
tomorrow. -
There is ever and always some human
soul to love and trust us. and whose con
fidence we would not alter. We are not of
our own making and our lives belong to
another. "Brahma who rules and Is wise."
Evidently Knew Him a Year.
As on. who waa unconcerned, In every
line of It I read only the same adoration
that a year's absence would not shadow,
and th. wonder comes to me .that- you did
not, could not, understand. Surely a life
such as yours brines in time understanding
you must know lewd from th. modest, the
untrue from the true
"Dream of you. did I sayT Long for you
would be better, for every heartbeat seems
to cry out against the .nonrnty of the
crime that makes m no longer youra. All
the best In everything seems only to exist
oecaus. oi you ana tor you.
I hate existence away from you. Why
do men dare to lift up their voices .gainst
th. blessed art? Art In others, which Is
greater, stronger, warmer spark of Ood's
soul that they poasess, or can lessen the
understanding we have on. for the other
ana no dirrerence can make us.foicet?
Remember always, as yo: loved mar best
and though wer. you a, a bandit anv
thing my heart wuld beat In responsive
ness to yours.

PAVE OMAHA WITH WOOD
Convincing- Proof of the Value of
Wood Blocks as Paring.
ADOPTED BY MODERN CITIES
New York, After Paris and London,
Lead All f ltlea In Creosote Wood
Block raving-thlcaa !
ond, Minneapolis Third.
Omaha ha earned the reputation of being
one of the foremost cities of th?. great
west.
It has earned It honestly, by entering
Into every movement which bar th stamp
of thrift, and by opposing every undertak
ing which seemed to throttle Its progress.
Omaha is about to take a step In paving.
This Is of vital Importance to all cities.
And yet It is Impossible to make a mistake
In the light of the experience of hundreds
of the most advanced cltieB In the world.
Omaha has reached the stage In lta de
velopment and growth when It can adopt
only the paving used by the best cities.
It Is a matter now of creosote block
paving as against the ordinary brick and
aspUalt materials.
The late Edward Rosewater, writing from
Paris, April 29, 190, has this to say of
the creosote blocks used In l'aila:
"The unexpected does not often happen,
but the moxt unexpected sights In the
streets of Paris are the wood block pave
ments. Fifteen years ago the avenues and
boulevards In the heart of the city, which
for centuries had been paved with stone,
were being repaved with asphalt. Now the
widest and most traveled thoroughfares
are paved with sawed wood blocks ot about
4x8 inches surface and three inches tulck
ness. These blocks are first creosoted, then
laid on a heavy base of concrete and oiled.
Thus treated the wooden block pavements
of Paris are as smooth as a waxed ball
room floor. The preference of wood over
asphalt Is claimed to be due to the soft
ening of the asphalt In the summer season
and Its Bllpperiness In winter. The wood
pavement Is as Just noiseless, much easier
on the horses and more agreeable to drive
over than asphalt. It is conceded, however,
that, the original cost of wood block pave
ment Is much greater than asphalt, owing
to the high price of lumber, but Paris is
bound to have the best paved street, w hat
even the coat may be."
From Circular 141, United State Depart
ment of Agriculture, appears a compara
tive value of the different pavementa.
Granite is given 71.0 points at an average
cost per square yard laid of $3.26; land
stone, 73.0 points, at a coat of S3.60 per
square yard laid; asphalt, 76.0 points, at a
cost of J2.29; brick, 74.5 points, at a cost ol
$2.06; macadam, S5.0 points, at a cost of .99,
while creosote block Is given SO.O point at
a cost of $3.10.
In Baltimore, In the summer of 1901, there
were laid several adjacent strips of exper
iment pavements, Including sheet asphalt,
creosote wood and several kinds of brick.
After five year' service and after passing
through the great fire, the wood wa. in
better condition than any of the other.
Thl Is from th government report. From
th same report, in front of the Auditorium
hotel in Chicago, the oreosote block was
laid In 1900, and adjoining asphalt wa.
laid. In flv year the asphalt was .e
placed with wood, while the creosote blocks
were comparatively smooth and even.
In 1902, In Ney York, the Metropolitan
Street Railway company experimented
with oreosote blocks, the wood being
planked at either end by granite. In four
years the wood was still sound and In
position, while the granite on either hide
had been renewed three times during the
four years.
Five year ago New York began with
creosote blocks. Today more than 600,000
yards have been used, while for the year
1909 300.000 yards will be laid. Thla la all
laid In downtown district, covering lower
Manhattan, which takea th. heaviest
travel In New York. In Chicago mora than
200,000 yards hav. been laid and a move
ment Is on foot now to pav. Adams street
from the postofflc. west of th. river.
Minneapolis began In 1900 with 2,000
yards. Today It has laid 410,000 and during
the year will lay 160,000 yards more.
To give some Idea of what headway the
creosote block has made in thla vicinity
the following cities, with the number of
yards laid In each, is given
8q. Yards.

C. U. Holmes, chairman of the Board of
Public Works of the city of Minneapolis,
said in answer to why Minneapolis adopted
creosote wood: Minneapolis adopted creo
soted wood block pavement In preference
to asphalt because we believe It to be tb.
better pavemeut tor our city. The actual
experience w. hav. had with both pave

opinion, to be correct."
In Pari there ar 850 mile of creosote

Old John Keith
Sues Railroad
for Broad Acres
Says He Made Two Good Opinions of
Road Flourish Where Before
One Feebly Struggled.
If all the petitions In civil ill filed
with the dlstrlit court were a. movingly
written as that of John Keith against
the Cnlon Paclflo railroad It would not
be necessary to argue the case. Mr. Keith's
petition, which Is the work of Attorneys
Sullivan and Rait, starts out with the
quotation, "An hpneet tale speeds best
being plainly told," and then proceeds
with five or six typewritten page of In
imitable rhetoric
sorrow rather than resentment" the
plaintiff presents his case. With the rail
road company he held many different posi
tions, but his principal usefulness con
sisted In th. fact "that with suave manner
and plausible argument he gently tempered
hostile public sentiment and did much to
make two good opinions of defendant flour
ish where one had feebly struggled before,"
Rut he severed his connection and la now
"In th. land of th. cactus and vine, piling
treasure mountain high wher. moths can
not corrupt, etc." But h. refuses to help
hla distressed former employers. "When
bleeding Greece again shall call Achillea,
she shall call In vain." But he haa formed
no other corporate attachment. He Is yet
leal and his affeeflon for th. defendant
abide, with him still and will, he bellevea,
abide always. This much he ha learned
from the dor, to die and know no second
love.
Once the plaintiff would not have needed
to ask for Justice "In the brave day. of
old." But time, have changed and at the
headquarter, now ar. "th. face, of men
who perhaps never heard of the valiant
service rendered the defendani at Brady
Island, Buttermilk Hill and the state cap
Itol." The disputed point arises from the pur
chase of 8000 acres of land by Keith from
the railroad company for $12,000 In 1900.
the ownership of which had already been
partially transferred to other persons,
While the dispute over ownership was be
ing settled, Keith tried to get back his
first payment on the property and failed
Now he wants to recover the whole prop
erty from the railroad company.
CUMMINS BREAKS WITH TAFT
(Continued from First Page.)
no more support to the validity of this
amendment than to ours.
"2. It does not change the nature of a
tax to bestow upon It a different name;
and If a mere name was Important or In
fluential, the tax proposed by our amend
ment could be called at excise tax Just as
easily and Just fcs correctly as can that
term be applied to the tax proposed by the
committee.
"3. The stroke of a pen will make the tax
authorised by. our amendment & tax upon
the right to receive and enjoy a certain
income; and it will be a. well deacrlbed
as the tax which the committee Insist
upon, when It I .aid that It I laid upon
the net Incomes of corporations with re
spect to the carrying on of their business."
' Colloquy Wltb Aldrlch.
During Mr. Cummins' comment on the
receipts and expenditures of the govern
ment, Mr. Aldrlch declared that with ad
ditional revenue to be provided by the cor
poration tax he would be greatly surprised
If there is any deficit next year. Ills esti
mates of expenditures for the present year
when the tariff bill wa. reported to the
senate, he said, were about $9,000,000 too
high, and he had, he raid, congratulated
himself that he had estimated within 12,
000,000 of the annual receipts. The deficit
for the present year, he added would be
about $K.000,000. and not ao great as for
merly estimated.
Again, he declared that If the tariff bill
become a law In It. present form It would
next year produce an Income of 1.160,000,000.
