In the party today expressed themselves In
favor of statehood for Arlsona.
Congressman Adams of Wisconsin said:
"I voted once for jointure because I knew

am against jointure."
Representative Qoebel of Ohio said: "Ari

great deal more. It deserves statehood now
and until It gets It It will find a warm advo

Repreaentatlve Miner of Wisconsin said:
"We are all with Arlsona and If the east

Representative Madden of Chicago said:
"The day will come when Arlsona will
get single statehood. If I can help I wilt.
I am astonished at the wonders of the

Representative Davis of Minnesota said;
"If Senator Beveridge's report on Arlsona
was' true, the territory has changed won

Representative Maynard of Virginia (the
only democrat In the party) said:
"If it were not for family ties, home as

representations by this government to the

their respective Interests there. In discus

that the international situation regarding
Morocco Is not appreciated generally In the

the part of France to gain a dominant

PUDD'NHEAD WILSON ALL RIGHT
Mark Twain's .Genial Philosopher
Gives Sherlock Holmes an
When Mark Twain Introduced to the
world that genial philosopher, "Pudd'nhead
Wilson," in 1893, the world laughed Im
mensely at many theories held by the de
lightful old fellow. None of these theories
created quite as much indulgent Interest,
however, as Pudd'nhead'e system of finger
print identification, upon which the whole
story revolves. It was considered very In
genious and original, although, of course,
not strictly new at that time.
Only twelve years later this system of
finger print Identification had been adopted
by the prison officials of nearly all great
nations as the Infallible' distinguishing
mark of one Individual among millions. In
the most recent report of R. W. Mc
Claughry, warden of the federal prison at
Leavenworth, Kan., the announcement Is
made that this system has not only been
adopted in that Institution as supplementing
the famous Bertlllon system of France, but
since a year ago the record clerk of the
Leavenworth "irlson has made and filed
finger prints of 1,613 prisoners, and has re
celved from other penal Institutions and
police departments tn this country 1,401 sets
of finger prints.
It ts worthy of note that It was Warden
McClaughry who introduced the Bertlllon
system Into this country, he having sent
his eon to Paris to study under the dis
coverer of that mode of Identification. It
was also Warden McClaughry who became
Interested In the finger print system which
was demonstrated at the World's fair In
St Louis by John Kenneth Ferrler of the
Scotland Tard detective force of London.
In his report Warden McClaughry says in
reference to this subject: s
"The report of the record clerk explains
the Introduction into our identification sys
tem of the method now in use in England,
and which was Introduced Into America
last year at the WorM's fair, called the
finger print system. It Is believed that this
system, in the years to come; will prove ex
ceedingly effectual In identifying criminals
and thereby lessening the Inducements to
attempt escape. What Is known as the Ber
tlllon system of Identification has been In
vogue at this Institution for several years,
and It will be noted that no escape has oc
curred during the past three years. Every
appliance that can be used to render more
certain the recovery of the fugitive Is sure
to lessen the tendency to attempt escape
and la therefore valuable economically for
the government, because It Is always ex
pensive to follow and apprehend escaped
The record clerk explains In his special
report that as a rule be takes five sets of
finger prints from each prisoner entering
the Institution. One sheet Is filed with the
prisoner's commitment papers in a fire
proof vault; another sheet Is filed In the
classified file of the finger print system of
identification for identification purposes
only,- and the remaining three sheets are
kept on tile In a fireproof vault to be used
In apprehending escaped prisoners or to be
used aa evidence In courts. Thus we see
the practical adoption of a theory con
ceived In some obscure philosophical fancy
and brought Into public notice through the
romancer's pen. Kansas City Journal.

Squirrels were never protected In the
state until the passage of the'present law,
In 1906. It took tiie state a long time to
come to the point of protecting the fish
In Its rivers or the wild game In Its woods.
At first and for many years they were
killed' by any. and every means, without
let or hindrance., Tha forests and fields
were full of game and the rivers teemed
With fish, and fof a long time no attempt
was made to protect them from extermina
tion. When the protective legislation
finally began It wae a little like locking
the stable door after the horse was stolen.
For more than fifty years after Indiana
waa first settled the slaughter of wild
animals went on without any restriction.
As to some of thorn It was encouraged by
offer of bounties for their scalps. The
slaughter of game-animals and birds wis

being great thieves of seed corn and green
corn. More than a docen different varie
ties were Indigenous to the United States,
but the best known was the common gray
or migratory squirrel. It was called mi
gratory on account of the long journeys
it sometimes made. Occasionally, for rea-1
sons or their own, probably In search of
food, these Squirrels used to migrate from
one part ot the country ft another In great
numbers. Once started on one of these
migrations, neither mountains nor rivers
could stop tham. and they devoured every
thing eatable that came tn their way.
Audubon describes one which be wit
nessed: "It was in 181. when we were de
scending the Ohio river In a flatboat
chiefly with the intention of seeking for
birds then unknown to us. About 100
miles below Cincinnati, as we were float
ing down the stream, we observed a large
number of squirrels swimming across the
river, and we continued to see them at
various places until we had nearly reached
Smitnland, a town about 100 miles above
Uie mouth of the Ohio. At times they
were strewn, as It were, over the surface
of the water, and some of them, being
fatigued, sought a few moments' rest on
our long steering oar, which hung into
the water In a slating direction over the
stern of our boat . The boys along the
shores and In hoate were killing the squlr'
rela In great numbers, although most of
them got across.': Indianapolis News.
