Bellingham. March 31���Charles Hopkins, ithe "tattooed bandit," wanted
for killing Antone Olson and wounding John Freeman at MoMurray, Skagit county, Saturday night and for
murdering a man in Seattle about two
months ago, and wounding three persons in Kverett lagt Thursday night,
was arrested at 1 o'clock this morning
at Van Horn, on ithe Upper Skagit
river, by Marshal Joseph Glover of
Concrete and a posse of citizens.
Hopkins was asleep when caught.
Yesterday afternoon he stopped at the
farm house of Frank Yeager, near
Van Horn and asked for something to
eat. After he had gone Yeager notified the officers. Last night Hopkins
secured a room over the store at Van
Horn. At about 1 o'clook the marshal
of Concrete, after having the store
surrounded, entered the room alone
and placed the fugitive under arrest.
On Hopkins' person was found a
88-callbre revolver. This was taken
by the officer before he could make
a show of resistance. It was discovered that all the cartridge balls had
been split four ways, apparently in
order to render them more deadly.
Hopkins was taken to the jail at
Concrete and will be removed to the
country jail in Mount Vernon. The
prisoner fits the description of the
man wanted. Across the fingers of
his hand are tottooed the words "True
LeOYfe," He is described as being about
six feet tall and there is a depression in his chin.
The officers this   Homing declined
I to   divulge   the   infoi mation   of   Hop-
i kins'   arrest,   fearing   that  he   would

I^ondon, March 31.���It is generally
recognized that Sir Kdward Grey's
speech in the house of commons this
afternoon has lifted the Irish question to a higher and calmer plane.
He was firm but conciliatory. His
plea for the resumption of negotiations on the basis of the establishment of a federal system within six
years was forcible, and there is
little doubt that the opposition may
adopt it if the time limit was withdrawn, it being felt that it would be
impossible to carry out so great a
change in so short a time. The fact!
that Sir Kdward Grey is leading the !
government with greater force than j
usual conies as a surprise, as he has
been in some quarters classed among
the lukewarm supporters of the home

London, March 31.���A national financial return published today demonstrates both the phenomenal prosperity of Great Britain and Its remarkable fertility, both fully justifying the optimism of Chancellor Lloyd
George a year ago. Then the chancellor anticipated a surplus of ��185,000
after taking over a million pounds unspent on the navy. The result shows
that the realized surplus Ig ��750,000
without touching the naval million at
all. The natural growth of the tax
revenue has produced eight and a
quarter million pounds and gives a total of��l��;?,.000,000. The income tax
increased by ��1,250,000 and the cus-
i tonis and excise duties by one and a
! third millions, while the chancellor's
estimate of Income has been exceeded
by ��3,500.000 Ills estimate of the
expenditure was only ��1.820,000 below  the actual expenditure.
The financial return suggests that
the chancellor may possibly depend
upon the natural growth of the tax
revenue to enable him to face the coming budget of ��205,000,000 without
levying new taxation.

After dozens of lives have been lost in the poorly-
charted, carelessly-surveyed waters of the Alaskan coast
it is reported that the American government has awakened to its responsibilities and is about to order a thorough
combing of the intricate northern passages to discover
the unmarked rock pinnacles which are at present a menace of the worst possible kind to the ships which make
that run.
To do the American authorities justice, it must be admitted that in making those waters comparatively safe
for navigation they have a problem of no mean proportions. The coast line appears to have been designed by
nature as a particularly difficult proposition for marine
surveyors, but on the other hand it also must be admitted
that the American government has not given the northern
route the attention which the traffic and the dangerous
conditions existing there demand.
Considered from a cold-blooded angle, the question is
one of vital importance to British Columbia because British Columbia ships and British Columbia people do considerable travelling through Alaskan waters. At present they do so at much risk as the loss in lives and craft
during the past few years amply testifies.
It is therefore with no small feeling of satisfaction
that those who now use the rougly-charted waters of the
Alaskan coast learn of the intention of the American
secretary of commerce to spend half a million dollars on
sun-ey work there and it is the earnest hope of all concerned that the United States congress will see fit to make! ?ffalE5 ,on. ,.h'

Henry M. Hyde, writing in the Chicago Tribune, tells of the efforts to
solve the problem of municipal government. Until recently River For-
jest, like countless other towns, has
been governed in the usual way by
councilmen and trustees, and to get
anything done It was necessary to call
j a meeting of the council, which always means delay. After describing
these conditions, Mr. Hyde writes:
River Forest is the first suburban
I village -at  least  in    Illinois���to    at-
I tempt to solve the problem In a radical way.   Just a little more than three
months ago Karl M. Mitchell went to
! work    as    general superintendent of
i the village, empowered to settle, with-
i out reference to any committee or other higher quality, practically all .the
questions which arise dally for executive action wherever more than half
a dozen people arc gathered together.
Up lo a year ago Mr.  Mitchell had
been for sixteen years an employee of
the Chicago Telephone company.  He
had experience in the department devoted to the maintenance of the telephone plant, and also in the systematizing  of   the   complicated   organization of the company.   His present salary  as  village   manager  is  $1,800   a
year.    It is too early yet to pass any
final judgment as to the result of the
experiment.    Most of the village trustees seem to fuel that so far it has
been entirely successful.
Mr. Mitchell has put into force
economies in the hiring of village employees which -if carried out to the
end of the year���will save almost the
amount of his salary. He has also
been able to buy certain supplies for
public use at less than the old prices.
It is a perfectly natural thing that the
influence of a boss who is always on
the* job shoulel result in more and better work being done by all the employees of the village.

the bullet was said to be of a size fitting a revolver bought by Pierre
months before although it was of the
most common calibre*��� and that nobody could find this revolver, which
Pierre stated he had sold to a commercial traveler whom he had never
seen before, because the safety-bolt
was defective. Again the fact that
no such traveler has yet revealed
himself was considered suspicious.
Suddenly during the last few days!
a quantity of evidence ln favor of
Pierre's innocence has been forthcoui
Ing. In the first place four credible
witnesses at least swear that they
saw Cadiou at Morlalx the day after
the prosecution believes him 11 have
been murdered at (Iriind Palud by
Pierre, because he was then seen near
the place where the body was found
in the engineer's company. Now the
witness who swore that he saw tl e
two men that day confesses that he
bas mixed up the dales. The latest
development reported is that several
witnesses insist that the bullet found
In Cadiou's head is a size too lar^e
for the pistol whicli Pierre purchased.
The bullet, is of nickel with a copper
nose, and said to be of a slightly larger calibre than Pierre's pistol, consequently it would be impossible to
fire; it from such a weapon. If this
is really so the prosecution loses i'.i
principal foundation, which was never
very solid, as anybody might possess
a similar pistol.
But more curious still, the gunrr.ak-
er who sold Pierre. h!s  weapon  now
comes forward stating that he recollects a customer lulling and asking
his opinion of the worth Of a revolver
which li" had bought casually. When
be valued it at 25s, the customer *-a:d
that it weis a good bargain, as he had
only  peeid half that sum because th'*
. safety  bolt  wus slightly out of order
And  this customer is a  commercial
; traveler in the soap and oil busini -s
' who   now   happens   to   be   in   South
j America,  which explains why h
not     come     forward.        Consequ.
Pierre's version appears to be tru
every particular.
On the other hand, the witnesses In
all directions r.re declaring that they
saw   Cadiou   In   various  places  where
his  own   family   never  knew   he*  had
gone, and it  is evident that the deceased  was in the habit of traveling
about mysteriously on his private affairs,    But if  Pierre's inocence is es-j
tabliahed,   cr   the   case   against   him
breaks   down,   the   police   are   yet   no
nearer   a   solution   of   the     problem, |

John K. Doollttle, war veteran, who
at times is em inmate of the Union
Veterans' home a: Port Orchard, is
the owner of the can of buried treasure found on the beach near Bremerton by some small boys several
weeks ago. The mystery was finally
cleared up yesterday in Judge
French's court ut Port Orchard.
A number of claimants appeared,
among whom were Paymaster Ed
ward R. Wilson, of South Dakota, who
based his claim to the money found,
amount unknown, ou the theft of
���IJOOO from the safe of the Philadelphia two years ago. Mr. Doolittle
made the strongest plea aud produced
letters in evidence which so substantiated his statements that Judge
Krench awarded him the package,

Tin Can   His  Bank.
!     In  stating  his    case    Doolittle  explained   that  on  November  22,  1911,
he drew out of a Seattle bank 41 $20
gold pieces and three gold eagles. He
bought  a  brand  new.coffee can and
waiting until nightfall he dug a hole
in the ground under the roots of an
old tree which Is marked and used as
a  government survey  landmark.    He
placed a piece of glass over the can
and covered it with dirt. When asked
why   he   did   so,   he   replied   that he
had been told    by    political    friends
that owing  to the change  in  admin
Istration   all  the  banks  were  due tc
fall the next spring.    He said that on
hiding the  money, he then  wrote    a
letter addressed to a son in   the east
telling what he had done and of the
exact   sum    buried     with  direction!
how  to find  It In case of his death.
This letter he gave    into    the    safe
keeping of Mr. Mclaughlin,   council
man   of this   city,    Mr. McLoughlin
appeared on the stand and corroborated the old man and produced   the
letter;  the money was   counted   and
found to be the sum stated,1 so that
there was nothing else for the judge
to do but to award the money to Mr.
Doollttle, who had to stand the costs
of the case.    However, the old  man
gave the lads who found the money
|25, and went on his way with    his
ceffee can bank  tightly    clasped    In
both arms.

thut the four gunmen who are await
Ing the death sentence during tht
week of April  13 for the murder of
luaguri    auu    a    .... .._
was one of the marvelous Inventions ,
of Robert Houdln, the great French
conjurer, who applied electricity to
many  of   his   magical   experiments
and   delighted   the   Parisian   public
for  years.     After    accumulating    a
competence, Houdln   retired   to   his
family estate on the banks of   tbe
1 Loire river, hoping to end hia days
in  peace.     But  after  a year or so
there came to blm, through a military   friend,   a   request   from   the
French Government   that   he go   to
Algiers.    In his memoirs, translated
Into  English some years before his
death, he says tbat the Marabouts of
that country, a sort of medicine men
and   wonder-working    priests,   controlled the masses and incited them
to intermittent   revolts   against   the
French by their tricks.   These tricks,
he assures us, were of the simplest
and most primitive type.   It was the
hope of the Government that Houdln,
by his mysteries, could demonstrate
that the white conqueror's magic was
superior, and Houdin did it.
His recital of his performance   In
Algiers    is   exceedingly   interesting.
Some of the most distinguished natives   were   there.     Houdin   showed
them   all  sorts   of   things;   allowed
himself   io   be  shot  at, and -caught
the bullet unharmed, and many other
such feats.    But his piece de resistance undoubtedly  was his box.    He
called for a strong man to come on
the   stage,   and   a   giant  responded.
Houdin   toyed with  him  a  moment,
bantered wilh him about his strength
and  asked him  if he could lift   his
little   black   box.    Disdainfully   the
Arab lifted it and smiled.    But Houdin   warned   him.    "Wait.     But   a.
I moment and you shall be as a little
child!"     He placed  the box on   tbe
stage  and  dared  his  huge  guest  to
raise it.    The Arab tried   with   one
finger;   grasped   it    with    his   great
muscular   hand;  tugged   at   it witb
all the strength of his massive arms,
bracing   his    legs    like    two    huge
bronze columns, so Houdin says, to
no avail.    Try as he would, this son
of tbe desert could not stir that little
box from Its place.    For a breathing
spell he released his grip for a moment,  then went at  it again.     And \
while     the     awe-stricken    audience
panted  in  amazement, he   suddenly
writhed in acutest agony and   sank
groveling to the stage.   The current
a  Can I coursing   through   him had   galvan-
t Ized him into misery.    Then Houdin
Fail���       I gave a signal;  the current from the
electric magnet   beneath   the   stage
was turned off   and   the   Arab   fell
back groaning*.     He lifted  himself Ul
las  feet and, hiding his face  In  his
cloak, crept away to   blush   unseen.
The little black box hud conquered.
Houdin was trlu.i'iphant. The
country had seen him shot at by a
man who said he wished to kill; had
seen him rob a giant of his strength.
No Marabout had ever done that
No Marabout with primitive trie' i
