WASIJI.VUTON. Jan. "S.-Prcsldent Rouse
vrii lift received a letter from Oencral
flrenvllle SI. Dodge, who was chief engineer
ml superintendent of construction of the
Vnlnn Pacific railway, culling attention to
the remarkable similarity Utwcen the
"musk of the nvl chorus" In those days,
when ' every form of "hammering" and
"knocking" utilised, to discourage the
building of that great transcontinental link,
nml the mischievous and malicious fault -finding
that Ik now 'rampant regarding the
Kirnt Isthmian canal enterprise. Oencral
Dodge writes from New York, on January
1;!, as follows:
Iy Dear Mr.' Prcsldcnl : These continual
ami persistent at lacks upon the Panama
canal remind me that very much the same
condition of affairs existed when the t'nlon
I'acltV railway was huill. At thnt time It
was considered a. national work, as the
Panama canal la now. , A (treat d-al of my
time was used In answering charges and
threats, none of which were based on facta.
They were mostly of the same nature aa
the attacks upon the Panama canal. Kvery
rllsatipnlnti-d applicant for position, every
Uncharged engineer and workman and dls
appolnted contractor knew they could air
their grievances and Ret congress to con
sider them, and th papers to take them up.

Of course. In all great worka there arc

but when any commission or any set of ex

get at the facts and the circumstances, and
all the facts, and consider them at tne time

give all people, connected with the building
of the Panama canal full credit and full
Justice, but It may not come sooner than
It did In the case or the I'nion Pacfrtc forty

and otheu I see who have been down to the

with the building of the canal that we did
not have to met on the t'nlon Pacific, and
that Is the routine you have to go through
with all government work. Again, 1 am

such statements are made and on such ut

promptly. That Is one thing we failed to do
in the beginning on the I'nion Paclflc. We
did not consider them of Importance enough

also have a. good rhVct In making other
people careful what they sny. The Idea of
a man spending twenty-four hours and un

the work Is beyond my comprehension, but
It Is more astonishing that reputable purer a

such things. It seems to me to Indicate a

Attention whs also called to tho varied
work in cncouiagiug new lines of investl

plants In this country. Four or five million
dollars worth of medicinal plants are Im
ported annually, and it was pointed out
that a good many of these plants could be
grown here profitably, special mention be

cently much Interest has been manifested
In tho camphor question. Camphor Is rap

the department has been making a special
effort to determine whether it could be
successfully grown here. The tree Is al

It la the common belief that In order to
be u successful lawmaker it Is essential
that a representative in congress should
be a lawyer. It Is safe lo say that fully
75 per cent of the members of the present
house of representatives have been ad
mitted to the bar of the state which sent
them to congress, and yet there are mem
bers who never looked Into a volume of
Illuckstone who have shown themselves to
be especially well equipped for the work
of congress. One of these is Representa
tive L. N. Littuuer of New York, who
ranks second on the committee on appro
priations. Mr. Llttuuer conducted the ex
amination of the bureau chiefs who were
summoned before the committee to explain
their reasons for asking for deficiency ap
propriations when the urgent deficiency bill
was under consideration tn that body. The
manner in which he conducted these ex
amination , shows how well quallfld a
business man can be to look after the
business Interests of the country, even
though he may never have "swallowed a
law book." Every official who found his
bureau running short of funds for the cur
rent fiscal year wus put through a cross
examliMiiion as thocougli as that which
Colonel Jlunn and Justice Deuel were
forced to undergo when Mr. Osborne had
them on the rack In New York, and not
an Item was permitted to go In the bill
until It had been fully and clearly ex
plained to Mr. I.lttauor and his associates.

of the bill when It was called up In the

NO AGREEMENT ON PACKERS
Question of Immunity to Be Decided on
Evidence Given to Jury.
NEITHER SIDE WILLING TO MAKE ADVANCE
Three Weeka F.aperted to Re t'oa
aamed on This I.lae Before .wain
tsanea f'aa ' Re Wrought
Before the Court.
CHICAGO. Ian. :. That -the question of
the Indicted packers' Immunity from prose
cutlon must he tried on the facts became
a practical certainty today when the last
effort of th opposing attorneys to reach
an agreement by which the matter might
be expedited failed. Th" hearing that now
becomes necessary will Involve the taking
of a large volume of testimony and will
last for perhaps three weeks. Had an
agreement been reached, a pica for the de
fendant packers would have been made to
which the government would have riled a
demurrer. On this demurrer the attorney
would have argued before Judge Hum
phrey with no testimony and without a
District Attorney Morrison and Attorney
John R. Wilson, the latter acting for the
defendants, each waited for the other to
make a move today toward an agreement.
It having been arranged that If either had
concession to offer be would notify the
other. Neither made an advance, however.
and the day was the last for conferences
on the matter, trial on the immunity picas
having been set for tomorrow.
The first step In the trial will be testi
mony by Louis C. Krauthoff, formerlj gen
eral counsel for Armour & Co., who Inter
viewed Commissioner Garfield April lit. 1904,
concerning the impending Investigation. As
the case now stands, the packers will In-
troduee testimony to substantiate their j
claim thnt Mr. Oarflcld's Investigation
clothes the packers with immunity from
subsequent criminal prosecution. Inasmuch
as they were compelled to produce evidence
against themselves. The Jury will decide
questions jot fact which are at variance,
and the court will decide whether under the
facts as found by the Jury the immunity
law protects the packers from trial on the
main Issues under the Indictment.

WOOD RIVKH The report of the busi
ness don st the I'nion Pacific ri pot during
the last year shows an Increase of several
thousand dollars over that of last year.
The exports were 1S2 cars more than lst
year, wnlle the Imports were Just the same.
The Increase of exports Is probably caused
by the business done by the mill anil largo
cement stone factory, which have been in
operation during the last year.

LONDON DWARFS INDUSTRIOUS

Helps Them to Help Them

The Bee.) iAindon has its own "Midget
City," a curious colony of dwarfs em
ployed In the making of artificial flowers,
being found In the heart of CTerkenwell,
within the walls of the Maimed, Halt and
Blind schools, Woodhiidgc street, E. C.
From the dark street to the long brightly
lighted rooms of the Midget city resplen
dent with flowers is a veritable transfor
mation scene. There at long tables perched
upon high stools the tiny people work
away, laughing and chatting, and by no
means inviting commiseration in their af
fliction. They appear huppy In this world
of their own.
One small creature iu a world by her
self was engaged in manipulating a com
plicated machine which Js used for shaping
and veining flower petals. Another was
gathering up the delicate pink petals of the
apple blossom. A few skillful touches and
yet another flower went to swell the bank
cf blossoms Iwfore her.
In another room a golden haired midget
was anxiously arranging her hair. The
hands she raised to the task were ap
parently those of a child about five years
"They are merry little folks," said Pas
tor Groom, who Is the organiser of the
colony and schools. ' "They manage to
sing and make a lot of noise.. Wo take
them for two years and while they are
learning to work they are lodged ,and
boarded free. As soon as they begin to
earn 1'is per week they pay a little for
their keep. If It were not for their train
ing these deformed girls must of necessity
become a burden on the rates. Now they
are useful and huppy members of the com

"Charming" and "delightful" are abused
adjectives, but they are used with unques
tioned propriety with reference lo the per
formance of "Rosemary" by the Woodward
Stock company. This Idyl of sentiment is
given the careful and tender treatment it
deserve. It Is quite well agreed that no
more engarlng and at the same time tech
nically satisfactory conieey haa been writ
ten for years. Its theme of bachelor middle
age falling In love with youth betrothed
to another, but renouncing for honor's sako,
Is touching and ennobling. So clean, so
sweet, so fresh In the pluy that its appeal
la not to be resisted by hearts that yet
yield to romance and minus that are not
dried and withered.
Mr. Morrison's Sir Jasper Thorndyke is
artistic and satisfying to a minute degree.
He surprised his best admirers nnd most
enthusiastic friends. Sir Jasper is tho cen
tral figure. You must feel for him and
sympathise with him or the play is thrown
away. Mr. Morrison lias one with lilm en
tirely from tho lighter first passages and
through his admiration and kindling love
for Dorothy; standing hy and offering an
approving, if commiserating hand during
the renunciation, and with a tcur fifty
years later, when as Jogram prophesied,
he is able to thank God for having had the
Particularly is the strength of the actor's
work shown In the last act when he has
to hold the interest of the audience by a
simple monologue. Tho characterization
necessarily Is a delicate one. Even a wrong
Inflection or gesture might Bpoil it. Mr.
Morrison preserves the balance. In the
scene in tho third act with Mr. Owen as
Jogram, both players rise to a point ao
much above the ordinary accomplishments
of a like kind thut it calls for marked
attention and commendation. '
There Is a delicacy about Miss Lang's
Impersonation of Dorothy that occupies a
large section of the arc of fragrance In
the play. After Innumerable comedy rorts
this season she still finds something new
and appropriate to dower Dorothy. You
pity Sir Jasper much more because you
have very clear evidence the girl he gave
up was worthy of every heartbeat she in
spired. Mr. Tulton comes to the front again In
a cleverly executed conception of the role
of Captain Crulckshank. Ills old sea dog
Is a character interpretation reflecting
great credit ujvm the actor.
William -Westwood. Dorothy's fiance. Is
a young man upon whom is launched any
quantity of jeers and unsympathetic laugh
ter from the audience. Mr. Todd is Wil
liam, and though the latter appears In a
very awkward lljht the actor Is enabled
to exhibit a pretty talent for Juvenile roles.
Mr. Owen's Prof. Jogram Is a study,
proving again the capacity of Uils actor
to create new Individuals, separate and
apart, at will. The redundant old pendant
Is a hard man to understand and a much
harder man to portray. After fooling along
for two acts without conspicuous aim or
purpose it is difficult to change the tone
to the dramatic climax wherein the pro
fessor points out the way of honor to his
old friend. Mr. Owen does It exceedingly
Mr. Schofleld as George, the post boy. and
Mr. Davles as Abraham give examnles of
finished character work. George Is spe
cially well delineated. He might have
stepped out of an old drawing of the
period. Miss Ward Is good as Mrs. Crulck
shank and MIsm Davis and Miss Hill are
acceptable In small roles.
The Woman Hater" at tbe Krua.
"The Woman Huter." David I. Lloyd's
farcical comedy, as played st the Krug by
Harry Beresford and comps"tiioii, may Jus
tifiably be classed ill that category of plays
which have a good excuse for existing It
abounds in a wholesome, cheerful atmos
phere and arouses the risibilities of the
playgoer with Its spontaneous wit and
' funny situations. Mr. Beresford is a clever
comedian. Hia droll humor percolates
through the sensibilities like a spring
zephyr. Not a line nor action of the play
As Samuel Bundy. the supposed woman
hater and a man of many little troubles.
Mr. Bereaford Is on the stage a greater
portion of the action. Bundy surprises his
friends by telling them there Is a side tn
his nature his friends wot not of. Straight
way, then, he makes good that assertion
by getting into a matrimonial tangle with
three widows at, the same time. After sun
dry complications two of the widows c"rop
out of the running and Bundy marries Mrs.
Lucy Joy. While sleeping on a sofa where
another man Is supposed to be, Bundy is
plrked up by two asylum attendants and
taken to a private asylum. In the end
matters are straightened nut and the
"woman hater" proves to the world lie Is
quite sane, although eccentric.

Vaudeville at the Crrlghton-Orphenm.
It's a very entertaining bill that's being
offered at the vaudevMle house this week
one that lias plenty of fun and no thought
In It. Four of the acts are of the circus
variety and the others are simply straight
fun. Welch and Maltland. who open the
proceedings, are described on the bill as the
"Umber droll comedian and the acrobatic
dancing girl." This might lie turned about,
for she Is apparently as limber aa he, and
he ran dance as well as she, and either of
them is a good card alone. Their work to
gether is very funny. The Juggling Nor
mans do the wonderful club Juggling stunt
that has made them a feature for several
seasons, and still win much applause by
their fast and accurate work. At Carletou

ness by his makeup, but he is also funny
and gets a large amount of laughter out of
a little bundle of Jokes and songs. The
Klocs sisters, a trio of splendidly built and
finely muscled young women, do some
stunts on the rings that are possible only
for athletes above the normal in strength
and agility. Ono of the young women, for
example, hangs by one foot while the other
two turn over her out st "etched and unsup
pcrted arms. Again, she hangs by one
foot, while the other two turn on a bar
which she supports by her free foot. These
are but two of a number of equally striking
feats accomplished. McCue and Cahllt ting
a couple of ditties and a pair ot medleys.
Mi. McCue has a bad cold that makes It
Impossible for him to do Justice to himself.
J. A. Murphy and Elolse Wlllard, known of

auditors In a scream of laughter rrofrt isrnrt

tedious old tutor delivering an explanatory
lecture to a class is one of the best bur
lesques ever given at the Orpheum. Bar
nold's dogs, monkeys and cata are a clever

with much less than the usual amount of
