Spokane, May 19.���Three bandits,
who locked the cashier of the state
bank at Spangle, Wash.. In the bank
vault and escaped with between $4000
and $5000 today, were surrounded tonight in the woods along Hangman
creek, rour miles rrom Waverly, Wash.
Tosses under the leadership of
sheriffs' deputies ordered bloodhounds
from Moscow, Ida., this evening and
put the dogs on the trail. A member
of one of the posses was O. W. New-
ion, the cashier of the bank.
Newlon was alone in Cue bank when
the three men entered. They covered him with pistols and forced him
into the vault and locked him in. The
robbers then locked the front door of
the bank, gathered up all the money
in s'ght and walked out of the back

Before entering the bank the robbers had arranged with J. ES. Beaug-
lian to drive them out into tlie country
at noon on a business trip. The men
afti r the robbery quietly walked to
Beaughan's garage and entered an
automobile. After going a shore distance. Beaughan remarked that he
had better return  for gasoline.
He returned to Spangle and while
nlling his automobile tank his passengers told him to hurry. The robbers had seen Newlon leave the bank
building. Beaughan was forced to
start up his machine and go out of
Spangle at lull speed with the bandits
Shooting in all directions. No resident of Spangle was injured but windows in the buildings on the main
street were broken.
Pursuit Taken Up.
Newlon gave an alarm and men and
beys with all kinds of Hrearms took
up the pursuit of the robbers in nine
automobiles, Four miles from Waverly the robbers left Beaughan's auto
and took to the woods. The robbers
were sei n by the posse late in the
afternoon and shots were exchanged.
Newlon was a member of the posse
until late in the afternoon when he
returned to Spangle to check up the
bank's   runds.
"The  men   were  beating  the  bush
when I left them," said Newlon. "They
are working slowly from different directions and are sure the bandits are
between  them  hiding  in  the brush.
"The three bandits entered the bank
I quietly   while   I   was   alone  and   they

Vancouver, May 19. -The chief feature today in the trial of the Chinese
boy, Jack Kong, for the murder of
Mrs. Millard, was that Kong's confession  was not admitted  by tbe court.
How this can be made effective

of the fact that a confession really

New York, May 19.--Theodore
Roosevelt returned home today from
his visit of many months in South
America. Accompanied by two naturalists of his party, O. K. Cherry
and Ij. B. Miller, the former president arrived from 1'ara at quarantine
shortly before four o'clock on board
the Booth liner Aidan.
With a few crisp sentences, punctuated by decisive gestures, the Colonel
reaffirmed the verity of the "River of
Doubt," curtly denied having expressed himself as to presidential porbablli-
ties for 1916, declared he would not
run for governor of New York, made
a few deprecatory remarks about his
critics and with harbor craft tooting
and flags fluttering was taken on
board a tug which proceeded to Oyster
Lost no Enerav.
Friends who had been alarmed by
the' reports of Col. Roosevelt's serious
illness, were greatly surprised when
they saw him. He was noticeably-
thinner and he used a cane when he
walked, but his face wore a healthy
tan and he had apparently not lost an
ounce of the vigor and energy which
have become characteristic of him. After stopping ten days in this country
Mr.-Roosevelt will go to Spain to the
wedding ot  his son, Kermit.
As the tugs which carried several
members or the Roosevelt family, including Mrs. Roosevelt, XV. Emlen
Roosevelt, Archie and Theodore, Jr.,
approached the Aidan, the familiar
figure of the Colonel could be seen
leaning far over the rail as he waved
a greeting, his Ups flexed into the
familiar smile.
Not a few eyes were wet as the collector of the port, Dudley P. Malone.
and a host of newspaper men climbed
up the cumpanionway. The Colonel
stood on the top and shook hands
with each man. Mr. Roosevelt anticipated most of the things people were
anxious to know as he submitted to a
fusitade of questions before going on
the tug that took him home.

see whether they are suitable- for pulp

puse the largest non-commercial paper

by adopting the same methods may
achieve similar results.

In Economic Field.
German  domination in    the    grand
: duchy began  its activity  in the field
! of economic  efol'rt,  the  German   Zol-
I verein, or .custom union, first closing

1 traffic with Belgium and with France,
j this being a preamble to what,  it is
stated, is destined to be a species of
j peaceful assimilation.
Since that first step was taken the
larger portion of the railway lines has
passed into Gi rman hands, while the
rich mineral deposits of the country
and its extraordinary industrial activities have now to a large extent both
been absorbed by Prussian capitalists.
Even on the border land of Belgium,
as far as Martelange the famous slate
and other quarries are under German
The Germanlzatlon process has been
vigorously pusi ul also In court circles, where the grand duchess, who

favorable to lhe Interests of the Ger-
nini'. government.
Eurdens Laid on Country.
The German Zolvereln In particular
has laid burdens upon the country
which have proved especially oppressive, and on each occasion when an
increase of armaments has been imposed upon the German empire, the
little grand duchy ha.- bei n called
upon to contribute largely to the
funds required, while the keen competition of German commerce has
proved most disastrous in its effects
on  the Industries of the country.

period of the treatment consists only
of mucous secretions.'' Eventually
the bacilli disappear, it Is claimed, the
temperature comes down to normal,
and the tuberculous cavities are totally dried up.
Fifty-four persons Buffering from
pulmonary tuberculosis have been
treated, and 17 up to the present have
practically recovered from the disease, it is stated. The others are
still under treatment In less serious
cases fie patient! continued to follow
their professional occupations, and
were not laid up at all. It is also
claimed that the Spahlinger method
has had success in cases of lupus and
tuberculous cervical ganglions.
M. Spahlinger was originally a barrister in Geneva, but attracted by the
study of biology lie gave up the law,
and for the List four years he lias been
experimenting in his laboratories on
behalf of suffering humanity. He is
some thirty years of age.
Too  Early  Yet.
London, May 19. Interviewed by a
pres srepresentatlve, Dr. Frederick
Golla, t! e eminent authority on the
subject <>f tuberculosis, said that he
was much interested jn the announcement mad" regarding the success of
the new tie.-1ment.
"It. is too early yet. 1 am afraid,"
said Dr. GoTla, "to assume that a specific cure for tuberculosis has now
been found, having regard to the comparatively small number of cases treated aud tlie proportll n of these slated
to  be  practically  cured.     Now  that  it
has come to be recognized that tuberculosis, in certain stages at any rale.
is not an incurable disease there is
always tin- possibility that too much
emphasis may lie laid upon the value
of any new specific treatment. It is
therefore inadvisable to base too hope,
fit! expectations upon any alleged cure
until it has been tested in a fairly
large number of cases and over a
reasonable period of time, so as to
determine the permanence- and true
value of the cure.
Even if you have a simple specific
for tuberculosis, and it should prove to
bo successful in the direct treatment
of the tuberculous conditions, this
does not necessarily prove its efficacy
in clearing up the secondary condi-
ditions. In other words, most tuberculous cases are not only affected by
tuberculosis, but also by tin- secondary Infection of other microorganisms
ami the difficulty is to find an antl-
tuberculous treatment which will also
effectively clear up those secondary
Infectious conditions, and Cans establish  a  real  and  permanent  cure. '
Now   Declared   Russia   Has  Stretched
Forth Hands Lo Graap Asia and
England  Is Caught.
London. May 1!'. In a recent article
tlie African Times and Orient Review
deals   Willi   t'.ie   pn sent    situation   ill
northern   Persia,    Alluding    to    the
statement made in certain quartan
that Persia had requested tbe Russian
government to maintain its army iu
northern Persia so as to previ nt impending disorder, tin- Review points
out. that this statement mas immediately denied by the Persian legation
in Paris.
"We have every reason for stating,"
it says, "that Russia's real aim is to
create excuses for prolonging her occupation of northern Persia without
interference from England, and that it
is In r intention to foment discord in
order lhat excuses may lie found for
remaining iu occupation."
Proceeding, lb" Review declares
that It is In th" highest Interest of
Great Britain that an end should be
made of Russian aggression in Persia. Islam has become- very suspicious, it says, of late regarding British
friendship for the religion of the prophet. 'I'he free hand given to Russia
in Persia, following so closely upon
the il'-plorable methods of pacification
adopted in Morocco, is not calculated
to inspire Mohammedans with conil-
'I'he pro-Russian policy of the British foreign office, (he Review insists,
is fraught with dangerous possibll
ities for Britain's eastern empire, and
in* that reason it is most essential
that tin- Muhammadans of the world
should have assurance of British
friendship, otherwise Croat Britain
may not be able to count upon Muhani-
maiian loyalty.
in   conclusion,  the   Revi( W   declares
that Russia has stretched forth ner
bands to grasp Asia, that she has en-
tangled the British foreign office in
lor diplomatic net, and that Englishmen ought to awaken to this fact he-
fore it is too late.

uid,   Lt    it   said,  one   which   tin    Km-
I pire newspaper advocated strongly In
i the   year  of   its   origin,   1908,   before
i the idi a bad been adumbrated In any
I othet quarter, was one that might be
j cailt-d   a   first   practical   step   toward
j workaday pereference within the Brlt-
[lih world,   lhe suggestion was double-barrelled:    That    every    British
| subject in making purchases should
Inquire the place of origin of the par-
tlcular article he wished to buy. aud,
if possible, select a product of his
own country.   Failing that, the pur-
chaser should, before buying a foreign-
made article, asci rtain if he could obtain   the    lame    article  produced   in
some country within the empire.    In
other wordi, that none of us. subjects
Of King (Ieorge, should buy any product of alien  workers, until and unless
he  bad  found that it was impossible
to get   equal   satisfaction from the
same thing produced  within  the empire.
The effect upon Iiritish trade of the
universal British adoption of such a
creed would be Immensely beneficial.
lt is a practical and most valuable
form of prefi rence which can be realized without the help of any parliament or political party, and, above all,
it is a form of patriotic support of our
own folk, In which the women, the
housewives Of tne race, can exercise
enormous influence, and serve British
progress most notably.
That was one barrel of the suggestion first mooted by the "Standard
Of Empire" in 1908. The other Bide
of the suggestion was for a means to
help it forward; the provision of a
definite, easily recognizable standard and guide for British buyers the
world over, in short, the introduction
of a British empire trade mark; a
legible  hall   mark and  sign   that  the

the easiest way of furnishing us with
that  knowledge   is   the   provision   of
one  standard   mark   which  may.  and
should, be affixed to every product ot
our own folk and empire;  which may
not be affixed to any product of alien ! _______^
