LONG PINE. Neb., March (Special.)
Tha expectations of a majority of the
business men of Vong Pine took an awful

thut the Northwestern Railway company
had withdrawn Its offer to sell the old
i all road bridge, formerly used by the com

of the new mammoth steel bridge here, to

men had hoped to purchase this old bridge
and move It up the, canyon for the con
venience of farmers and cattlemen living
west and north of town, who, when coming
here with loads, must make heavy1, hard
pulls In crossing a steep canyon Just on tha
western edge of town. It looked for a
while like the railroad company would dis
pose of thla bridge to Long Pine and It
did finaly offer It for sule for tl.Cw. A

offer, having decided to utilise the material

This selsure waa made aa the result of a

his loss and Inability to recover any of
the money he vowed vengeance with the
above result. Notwithstanding the com

CONSTANTINOPLE, March ls.-tSpecial
Cablegram to The Bee.) The question of
an Increase In the Turkish customs duties
Is being badly complicated by the attitude
of the United States. Hitherto negotia
tions have been conducted exclusively by
the Porte and the alx embassies, much "to
the annoyance of most. of. the. other .nilar
slbna, which claim that they have a right
to he consulted In a matter which concerns
them aa much as it docs the embassies of
the great powers. "It la bad enough," some
of them say, "that the ambassadors should
propose to pay for their reforms In Mace
donia by allowing the Turks to Increase
their duties on our goods as well as their
own. The least they oould do would be to
make a pretence of consulting us In the
This feeling found expression In a con
versation which the American minister has
had with Tewflk Pasha. Mr. Lelshman
Warned the foreign minister that the con
sent of the I'nlted Stales government
would have to be obtained before Increased
duties could be levied upon American goods
and that the I'nlted States government
was not likely to assist Turkey In this way
until the Porte carried out the engage
ments which they had made with the
United Btates, but had so far not even at
tempted to fulfill.
In diplomatic circles it Is doubted how
far the United Sttaea Is justified In taking
this line. In some quarters It Is main
tained that in such matters the United
States, like most other countries, derive
their rights from the most favored nation
clause and lose them when the original
treaties are altered, which can W done
without there being any need to consult
the government to which Turkey has ex
tended the benefits of the most favored
nation treatment. It is not likely, how
ever, that the Americans will be restrained
by a consideration of this kind from ma
king their voices heard on a question which
concerns their trade. The United States
has a freer hand than the other powers,
which are afraid that a refusal to grant
the S per cent increase will compromise the
prospects of the financial commission es
tablished with so much trouble In Mace
donia, while Americans have, of course,
no share in the responsibility for the crna
tlon and the maintenance of that body and
do not feel bound to consider how their ac
tion ntsy affect it.

LOUIS VI M.K. Ky March lv-The ex

given In their honor by President Hanger.
In the course of the work preliminary to
the opening of the business sessions of
the congress the commit tec examined Into
the claims of Philadelphia. St. Pniil nnd
St. Louis for the next tournament and
found thnt each city possessed the neces
sary financial guarantees. All three will
be voted upon In open session of the con
gress. It Was decided to recommend to the

Kaleidoscopic changes In bowling politics
and social entertainments kept the dele
gates and bowlers present at the American
Rowling congress and tournament amused
ttaiay, thore being no Sunduy bowling.
Rumors as to comblmttlona mid deals In
connection with the elect Inn of a president
and the selection of the next meeting ploco
wore so numerous nd contradictory that
the bowlers are all at sea. Last night the
Philadelphia!! claimed to have the next
tournament and the election of Albert Baits
for president practically nailed down.
Tonight the drift seemed to be toward
St. Louis for' the next tournament with
Stories that the delegation from that city
had combined to support F. W. Grose
wlsch of St. Paul, or C. J. KtilTma.ii of Cin
cinnati. As the selection ot the next meet
ing place ond Ihc. election of officers will
probably not Come up until Wednesday
and as all the bowlers and delegates will
not have arrived before that time, the sit
uation may be still further complicated
during the next three days. Il Is aen
erplly conceded thnt Chicago, on necojunt
of Its large representation, will cast the
decisive votes, and St. Louis men claim
to have won the support of nearly all. the
dolegates from that city.
May rhnne I nvrr,ltten Law.
There Is a strong sentiment among tho
delegates that this year should witness
a permanent departure from the unwritten,
but hitherto almost Invariable, rule that
the president should be selected from tho
city which secures the tournament. There
Is also talk of an attempt to change th
constitution so as. to deprive the executive
committee of the right to make nomina
tions ot officers, tielegates on the floor
have the same right, bttt it Is claimed that
the executive committee has become pos
sessed of almost arbitrary power in mak
ing slates. . Both thewe questions are ex
pected to precipitate lively battles when
brottght up on the floor of the congress.

'SVRACtfSR. Neb. March 18 -To the Kd
ltor of The Bee: .In'l8.s, when horsemen all
over the state got so enthusiastic that they
would "nicker" In place of laugh, it meet
ing was called through The Bee for the
purpose of organising these breeders Into
an association whece the merits of their
products might be brought together in
friendly contests of speed each year, and
where all could be kept In touch with each
other, thus facilitating the exchange of
stock as well as idea.
The first meeting van called at the Com
mercial hotel at Lincoln and was attended
by same sixty breeders of the state and
an organlratlon effected. The late Senator
Hayward was the first president; John
Kesterson of Falrbury, vice president; W,
H. Barstow of Crete, treasurer, snd I had
the honor of being elected secretary. The
board of directors, which consisted of five,
was filled by Dan Johnson of Weeping
Water, J. D. Maefarland of Lincoln. Henry
Fry of York. Kd Pyle of Humboldt and
D. T. Mount of Omaha. (This Is tukxn
from memory and- may not be entirely
correct.) A membership fee of $2 was
cliarged each member and this amount was
the annual dues; we soon had lot) members
on the roll. The first meeting was held
at Omaha, at which meeting classes from
the yearling to the free-for-all trotter were
provided and a three days' meet held. At
this first meeting about $3,om) was paid
out to the stake winners. It was the
policy of the directors to add tluO to each
stake, and no more. The towns desiring
the meeting bid for the event and $AiO
was-shout the price psld by Omaha for
this first meeting, and aloiut the same
amount by Lincoln. Haednga and Falr
bury for meetings field later. With this
!Hl the monev added to each stake as
secure, regardless of gate money, and the
treasury was always In a position to meet
every demand. This policy was carried out
for some six or seven years and was a
great success. This success encouraged
seme of our friends from north of tne
Platte to come to Lincoln at the annual
business meeting with a host of friends
who desired membership. All paid In their
12 fee nnd were voted In as members.
Following this move tn officers were all,
or nearly all, from this new field of in
terest. Their enthusiasm was so great that
they made a program for the annual trot
ting meet wtlh from to $T.'i In added
money to each stake. David City put In
a bid at a great advauce over that which
other towns had paid snd the meeting
was held at that city. The weather con
ditions were unfavorable and therefore the
directors were disappointed In the gate re
ceipts, with the result thst winners were
paid onlv In part for tho orders which
thev held on the treasury, ss there was no
other way of paying off these large
amounts of added money. After this ex

CRITICISM FOR MAYOR DUNNE
(ilaaatonr Herald Intimates that thl
caan Man Is I'laylno: Politics
CLAStiOW, March lx.-tipecla! Cable
gram t Th" Bee,) The (llnsgow Herald
takes Meyor Dunne of Chicago to task In
the following language In an editorial
The co i resonlence which has p:issiil be
tween Mr.. Myles. as representing th
town council of Miasgnw, ami Mayor i)unne
of Chicago, aa representing himself, and hv
no means tho city of which he Is ihe civic
head, regarding the nonpuhltcatlon of Mr.
Kan ymp.e s r-i."it tion Hie tiainnay s.
teni of "the first great city of America."
can scarcely be made even by the stretch
t charily to exonerate Mr. Dunne from
a charge of "playing the Hume' a trifle
unfairly. It was unmlsta kabiy understood,
not, omy by the corporation of tltssgow.
whoso consent wns required, hut by every
body Interested In nmnlrlpalliatlon, that
when Mr. Dalrymple obtained leave of ab
sence to visit Chicago he was doing so st
the request, not of Mr. Dunnn as nn In
dividual, probably destined to achieve civic
eminence, but of Mr. Dunne already vested
with a certntn authority o speak for "Ihe
first great city," nnd consequently that the
report to be prepared by this admitted ex
pert would be submitted to the council and
Cltlsens of Chicago. Mr. Dunne contends
that the report is his personal property,
because, first, he was not authorised when
he sent his cablegram to rpeak for the
municipality, and. secondly, because he
nlmsolf paid the whole of Mr. Dalrymple s
expenses to and from Chicago. To this
contention it may be replied that while
the phrasing of the cablegram may have
been determined by Iho fact that on April
5. IHoB. Mr. Dunne was still only mayor
elect and so incapable of pledging the com
munity to any expenditure whatsoever. The
reference to Chicago a decision in favor of
municipalization, the Implication thnt the
mayor-elect would In all probability soon
possess, a stronger title to appear as th
representative of a progressive municipal
ity and indeed the tone of the message It
self, so buo.siuly and even aaifresslvely
confident, were circumstances that left no
doubt In the minds of the Glasgow people
that here wns an Invitation from Chicago's
most prominent ritlsen. In his public ca
pacity, to investigate and advise on a sub
ject of pressing Interest to Chlragoans.
On the second point, that of expenses, Mr.
Dunne is convicted out of his own mouth,
for where. In or out of America, would lie
find an expertwilling to travel' many thou,
sand miles, to spend luoorlotis days, to
meet and engage .the ubiquitous "Inter
viewer." to formulate a no duubt ex
haustive report on the bate possibilities of
an "etcetera?" What man of senso
equipped to discuss and Mdvlse on a mat
ter involving the management Of proper
ties worth millions of dollars would cross
the Atlantic and half a continent for the
sake of "all expenses, tirst-chjss travel,
hotel bills, etc?" We are afraid that Mr.
Dunne's apologia Is an afterthought, cdn
dltloned by politic considerations with
which we have nothing to do, but marked
chiefly by Its lack of candor. - A bad esse
snd s worse defense Is the best we can ssy
for this attempt to pin the corporation
down to the verhuthn et literatim of a
cablegram and Its tramway manager to the
details of a bill of expenses.

WORK ON SHOSHONE PROJECT
Rapid ProeTws Made in Constructing
MAIN DAM WILL BE HIGHEST IN WORLD
Structure Will Re l-'eet from
Med Hock to Top Riant to
Lease Reserve Lands
iKroni a Staff Correspondent. I
WASHINGTON. March R-tSpeclal.)-Work
on the Hhoshone project in Wyoming
progressed rapidly during the month of
February. The flume nt the dam site has
been so far completed as to divert the
river around the side of. the remaining
jiortlon of the temporary dam so that the
work of erecting that structure nrroes the
main channel was undertaken on March 1.
A large force Is employed on the out
let tunnel, which has it cross-section of
11x12 feet. The rnte of progress has been
4.S feet dally, or a total of Kl feet durlf
the month. The excavation was In ex
ceptionally hard granite, the drilling be
ing done with standard drills and the blast
ing with AO per cent dynamite, flans for
the main plant have developed rapidly dur
ing the month.
The work of grading Is now in progress
for boiler house, cement house, storage
bins for sand and stone and for the crush
ing outfit. It Is proposed to put In fouir
boilers, each of about lflO horse-power ca
pacity, for driving two air compressors
which will supply power for running rn
bk way7 stone crusher, drills and detached
machinery. The early delivery of the
workable portion of this plant Is expected.
At the present time 110 men nnd forty
horses are employed on construction.
On the Corbett tunnel during February
187 linear feet of main tunnel waa ex
cavated from two headngs. During the
month of March it is expected that the
crib work for the temporary dnm will be
completed and that the excavation for the
outlet tunnel will tie finished. The Sho
shone dam will be the highest structure
of Its kind In the world, 3W feet from bed
rock to top.
Leasing; Reserve Ijinds.
In Initiating many of the large irriga
tion projects arena embracing thousands of
acres have been withdrawn from entry or
purchased for irrigation works under the
reclamation act. The lands which ore re
quired for reservoir purposes and rights of
way when withdrawn are not subject to
entry or occupation by any one. It has
frequently been necessary to acquire culti
vated estates which ore located in the
reservoir sites. The question arose as to
whnt could be done with regard to these
cultivated tracts durlhg the three or four
years of construction, and of other lands
that could be leased for a longer or shorter
period without detriment to the project.
An opinion wos .inked of the secretary as
to whether these lands could be leased
tetiijicrarily. The secretary has Just de
cided that leases can properly be made
provided they will not Interfere with the
use and control, of the lands for the pur
poses contemplated In their purchase and
reservation. The decision Is an Important
one to the service and will greatly facili
tate the progress of the work In several
sections. For the most part the reservoirs
are located far from town and railroads
and the question of supplies for men nnd
I've stock Ik a very' serious one. The cul- j
tlvated ranches near the' works And ready
sale for all their products and their aban
donment during construction would result
in very materially Increuslng the cot of
the project as well as the expense of sup
plies and deprive the workmen of fresh
vegetables, meats and fruits. Hy making a
lease of the cultivated areas within reser
voir ailes to farmers, the government ia
able to purchase at reasonable prices largo
quantities of farm products and at the
same time derive a revenue from such
lease, reducing the expense of the water
rights to the settlers on Irrigated Isnds.

The doctor admits that h was unable to

shortly before her death Miss Heath told
him that she had taken a large dose of
