RANGE CONDITIONS FAVORABLE
No Heavy Losses Reported by Either
the Sheep or Cattle
CHEYENNE, "Wyo., Feb. 16.-(Special.)
Saturday night's storm was of short dura
tion and so far as known no damage was
ooie. The weather remains cold, but as
a high wind carried tlie sr.ow oft of the
rarge livo stock wilt have no difficulty in
getting plenty of feed.
While conditions In the eastern portion
of the Red desert, which la occupied by
the sleep of Carbon county, are not as
satisfactory as the flockmasters could wish,
still conditions in the western portion,
where the Sweetwater county flocks range,
are In the main satisfactory, and sheep
are doing well. Considerable feeding is
belrg done In the eastern portion, where
snow covers the ground and where In
msry sections a thick crust obtains on
the snow, but to date the losses are not
above normal, and with anything like
favorable condlttona from now on sheepmen
will not complain.
In northeast Wyoming conditions are Im
proving dally. Snow fell In that kection
In October and has since covered almout
all of the range and sheep grating has
been extremely difficult, although no
loeaea have been reported. The lip and
leg ulceration Is yielding to treatment and
tl.a sheep owners are in better spirits,
This disease, which is not of a specific
nature, also prevails In Converse and Na
trona counties, and recent reports sum
that the malady ia also yielding to treat
u.ent there. The range conditions have
been unfavorable for treating the disease
ci.d favorable for Its spread, but condi
tions are Improving.
Cattlemen report that while this has been
a leng, hard winter no serious losses to
date have been reported. Feeding is In
progress on almost every ranch in the
slate, and this applies to sheep as well
as cattle, but the stockmen have plenty
of hay, for In many localities they have
stacka that have been In plaos for two and
While the winter has been a severs one,
although there have been no real bllxiards,
stock in general la in good condition and
with the supply of hay and grain on hand
there should be no severe losses, even
though, the severity of the weather should
continue through until spring.

WASHINGTON. Feb. 15.-Memorles of
the men who were plunKed to sudden death
whe.i the battleship Maine went down In
the waters of Havana harbor, eleven years
a 30 today, were honored In song and story
here today In observance of the anniver
sary by military, religioua and patriotic
Beautiful and Impressive were the cere
monies at St. Patrick's Catholic church,
where a military masa was celebrated for
the dead heroes by Rev. Thomas E. Mc
Ouigan. Rev. Dr. William T. Russell, pas
tor of St. Patrick's delivered the eulogy.
A pilgrimage was made to Arlington, where
at the granite shaft which towers above
165 of the Maine victim, services unusual
In their solemnity were conducted In the
presence of a throng of people.
Rear Admiral Slgbee, retired, commander
of the Ill-fated battleship was the chief
speaker, and In stlrrlngords he depicted
the story of the cat Rapt rone which led the
nations to war.
"On that dark, overcast and omlnouely
quiet night, eleven years ago," lie said.
"taps took on a- new meaning to the sur
vivors of the Maine. They were sounded
that night with exceptional-solemnity. Tn
the pauses the echoes rolled back from the
hills with euch distinctness that all must
have listened and heard. Taps, the nightly
signal for silence snd sleep, was therefore
the last distinctive sound heard by the
men in life, for in one-half hour they were
dead for the greater part dead In their
sleep. And the bugler, himself, was dead.
He bad sounded a requiem for himself and
Dead Are Not Forgottea.
"We are assembled here today, some ss
Individuals and others aa members of pat
riotic organisations, to honor our dead.
The. manner of their dying calls for our
deepest sympathy and most profound sor
row. The honorable chance of war that
others had later these men did not have,
yet Just as truly they served their ceuntry
well. Beyond all doubt our whole people
feel deeply the loss of the Maine's men
and with no passing grief. The rresent
gathering and the gatherings at ceremonies
elsewhere today show that these dead are
not forsrotten. To me, as to no other man,
has come a knowledge of the sorrows and
distresses spread broadcast by the catas
trophe of the Maine. Comrades and friends,
as the commander of the Maine when It
was lost, snd far as I may assume to be
representative on this occasion. I Join my
hands in yours In patriotic fellowship and
In grateful appreciation of these commem
orative services at Arlington."
Several others delivered brief addresses.
Two troops of mounted men from Fort
Myer fired the salute. A large floral trib
ute was sent by President Roosevelt and
many wreaths were contributed by Indi
viduals and patriotic organisations.

the conference was that of sccurate In
formation concerning these questions re
lating to childhood. The national govern
ment not only has the. unquestioned right
of research In such vltsl matters, but Is
the only agency which can effectively de
duct such general Inquiries as are needed
for the benefit ot all our citizens. In ac
cordance with the unanimous request of
the conference, I therefore moat heartily
urge your favorable action on these meas
ures. Need of Child Statistics.
"It Is not only discreditable to us as a
people that there Is now no recognised and
authorlttve source of Information upon
these subjects relating to child life, but In
the absence ot such Information as-should
be supplied by the federsl government
many abuses have gone unchecked; for
public sentiment, with its great corrective
power, can only be aroused by full know
ledge of the facta. In addition to such In
formation aa the census bureau and other
existing agencies of the federal government
already provide, there remains much to be
ascertained through lines of research not
now authorised by law; and there should
be correlation and dissemination of the
knowledge obtained without any duplica
tion of effort or Interference with what
la already being done. There ars few things
more vital to the welfare of the nation
than accurate and dependable knowledge of
the best methods of dealing with children,
especially with those who sre In 'one way
or another handicapped by misfortune;
and In the absence ot such knowledge each
community la left to work ' out Its own
problem without being able to learn of
and profit by the success or failure of
other communities along the same lines of
endeavor. The bills for the establishment
of the Children's bureau are advocated
not only by this conference, but by a
large number of national organizations
tnat sre aisinterestediy wonting tor me
welfare of children, and also by the phil
anthropic, educational and religioua bodies
In all part of the country.
I further urge that' such legislation be
enscttd as may necessary In order to
bring the laws and practices In regard to
the care of dependent children In all federal
territory Into harmony with the other con
clusions reached by the conference. -
Legislation la Territories.
"Congress took a step In the direction of
the conclusions of this, conference In 1833,
when, on the recommendation of the late
Amos G. Warner, then superintendent of
charatiea for the District of Columbia, the
Board of Children'a Guardians was created,
with authority, among other things, to
place children in family homes. That board
has made conima'Msble progress ' and Its
work should be stTrtigthdned and extended.
"I recommend legislation for the Dtstiiot
of Columbia In accordance with the fifth,
sixth, seventh and eighth sections of the
conclusions of the conference, ss follows:
"1. That ths approval of the Board of
Charities be required for the Incorporation
of all child-caring agencies, as well as
amendments ot the charter of any benevo
lent corporation which Includes . chlld
carlng work, and that other than duly In
corporated agencies be forbidden to engage
In the care of needy children. This legis
lation Is needed In order to Insure the fit
ness and responsibility of those who pro
pose to undertake the care of helpless
children. Such laws have long been In sat
isfactory operation In several of the larger
states of the union.
"J. That the Board of Charities, through
Its duly authorized agents, shall Inspect
the work of all agenclea which care for de
pendent children, whether by Institutional
or by home-finding methods, and whether
supported by public, or private funds. The
state has always jealously guarded the In
terests of children whose parents have
been able to leave them property by re
quiring the appointment of a guardian, un
der bond, accountable dlreotly to the
courts, even though there be a competent
surviving patent. Surely the Interests cf
the child who Is not only an orphan, but
penniless, ought to be no less sacred than
those of the more fortunate orphan who
Inherits property. If the protection of the
government Is necessary tn the one case it
Is even more necessary In the other. If we
are to require that only Incorporated In
stitutions shall be allowed to engage in this
responsible work It Is necessary to provide
for publlo Inspection, lest the stats should
become the unconscious partner of those
who either from Ignorance or Inefficiency
ars unsulted to deal with ths problem.
Education ef Orphans.
J. That education of children In orphan
asylums and other similar institutions In
the District of Columbia be under the su
pervision of the Board of Education, in
order that these children may enjoy edu
cational advantages equal to those of the
other children. Normsl school life comes
next to normal home life In the process of
securing the fullest development of the

caring work in the District of Columbia be
required by law to adopt adequate methods
of Investigation and make permanent rec
ords relative to children under their care,
and to exercise faithful personal super
vision over their - wards until legally
adopted or otherwise clearly beyond the
need of further supervision; the forms and
methods of such Investigation, records and
supervision to be prescribed and enforced
by the Board ef Charities.
"I deem such legislation as Is herein
recommended not only Important for the
welfare ot the children Immediately con
cerned, but Importsnt ss setting an exam
pis of a high standard of child protection
by the national government to the aeveral
slstes of the union, which should be able

sanity ( Defeadaat.
The Jury Is considering the destiny ot
Van Wilson GooJell. It was given the case
at 5:50 yesterday afternoon after listening
to the instructions of Judge Sears and to
one of the most scathing arraignments of a
prisoner at bar ever uttered In the Douglas
county court house. County Attorney Eng
lish urged the desth penalty for Goodell,
"Let It be not said that a Jury of men
who love and revere their mothers, who
love their sisters snd have their safety at
heart, failed to administer the severest pen
slty of the law."
"It has been a grave ta.sk, this rase for
the prosecuting attorney, It Is a graver one
for the Jury since in my recollection thero
has been no murder case In this county
possessing the stroclty snd brutsllty that
this one does, and I hold that thla man de
serves desth and nothing else."
Refers to Thaw aad Halas Cases.
Speaking of the defense put up English
referred to the Thaw and Halns cases and
the "unwritten law," and pointed eut the
difference between a husband's svenglng
his honor and the shooting down of a girl
in cold blood. With regard te Judge 81a
baugh'a frequent references to - Goodell's
love for the girl the county attorney grew
grimly sarcastic. "Counsel does not need
to argue the attributes or characteristics of
love. Ws know what It means. We shall
not bs fooled by any sickly simulation.
Does he take us for a lot ot mawkish
school boys?. A strange love Is ths defend
ant's, as the result of which this girl has
been in her grave six months. This man
may sit In front of this jury and shed
tears, but a whole ocran of tears will not
wash from his hands the stain of Edna
"When it came to the attack upon Edna
Kennett his purpose was definite; his hand
steady. Did he kill himself? Why In God's
name is he not dead! A scratch on the
forehead! He held the revolver close
enough to her to make sure. Powder burns!
There were no powder burns on him."
Goodell's narrative on the stand of his
engagement to the girl when she told him,
he said, that she had given birth to a child
this was characterised as the work of "a
ghoul, who not content with taking ths
girl's life, dragged forth her body from the
grave and paraded It In the market place."
Calls It Blarkealna Character.
"Was it necessary for him also to
blacken her character after he had killed
In closing English again urged the
noose aa the fit punishment for Goodell.
The county attorney began speaking at
3:46 snd concluded at 5:40-o'clock. Before
him Attorney W. W. Slabaugh had used
all the time of the defense,, and his asso
ciate, Charles Foster, did not spesk. The
insanity of the prisoner was argued at
length by the senior counsel for ths de
fendant, and to this question the county
attorney also devoted considerable time.
The courtroom was jammed throughout
the addresses, which began with that by
Assistant County Attorney Louis Piatti in
Attorneys for the defense receleved a let
ter, after they had closed their ease from
a man In . Tripp county, S. D., saying that
one, a former employe of the Loyal hotel
who knew Edna Kennett, should be sent for
and that he knew a great deal about the
rase. The letter concluded with the some
what large promise that this witness could
clear Goodell. In the event of conviction this
newly" discovered testimony will be pleaded
as cause for a new trial.

Daniel Sullivan, aged , the messenger,
wus sent to the bank with two checks, one
for 18,800, the week's payroll; the oilier for
$300. At window No. 4 he had the check
for $3.8fl0 cashed by the teller. The buhdln
of bills and pltts of silver were slipped
Into the small hand satchel. Then Sullivan
turned to window No. 3, to have the check
for $300 cashed. He allowed the grip .with
the cash to escape his attention for a mo
ment, during which a stranger grabbed
the grip and left the bank unnoticed..
"The pay roll Is stolen." cried BtilUvan,
giving the alarm to everybody In the bank.
Immediately search waa started, .. several
running1 to the street crying robbery and
looking for a man with a small grip, about
