govern mont expenditures By July the first the expenses will exceed the receipts for the fiscal year more than one hun cIrca million dollars The prospect of revision always causes a hajt in business therefore it is of the highest importance that the new bill should be passed as speedily as possible He suggests that the present session shall be de voted chiefly to the consideration of the tariff question WASHINGTON DrC March 1G President Taft last evening had al most completed his message to Coii1 gross upon the subject of the tariff He kept at the task upon which he was engaged autos the

Willis L Moore Chief U S Weather Bureau Writes of Work of I the Service The chief of the weather Bureau Willis L Moore has issued the following explanation of the bureaiis wok regarding the storm of March 4 in Washington 1 WASHINGTON D C March 10 It is not usual to answer cdticWmsoof the forecasts of thcl Weather Bu reau but the hundreds of press clippings that have beets received since March 4 containing adverse criticisms of the Bureau seem to call for tHis statement from mejForecasts of the Weather Bureau are before the public every day in the year In the past about one pre diction out of ten failed to be verified and it may be expected that the same ratio of failure will be maintained un meteorology can be made what Is not now an exact science In the case of the storm that visr ited Washington on the 4th of March last the fact is that the disturbance began here on time morning of the 3d and was accurately forecast the lay before The Bureau anticipated that the storm center would pass over the Middle Atlantic States during the night of the 3d and that northwest winds and fallingtemperatnres would leave a clear day for the 4th The center past precisely as forecast the wind lifted and tho temperature fell but instead of the northwest wind cleaiing the sky as it does in nearly all cases precipitation in the form of snow occurred and continued for twelve hours after the storm center had past eastward No forecaster could foresee this Were we to fore cast a fall of snow following the pus sage of storm centers that move from the northwest we would have hundreds of failures charged against us instead of an occasional one for it is rare that snow falls in the Middle Atlantic States except with time ap proach of a storm from the south west which pauses northeast winds and it is extremely rare that any storm in this region that begins with rain ends with snow of any Cousid erablc amount Oil the contrary many storms that begin as snow end as rain lime forecast in question was made by one of the host cxfs fenced forecasters of the Bureau and was concurred in by all of the forecasyters who were conversant with the conditions and the same forecast would be made today if similar con ditions existed The forecasters of the 1L S Weather Bureau are the equals if not the superiors of any others in the world and their predictions of frosts cold waves Hoods and marine storms although subject to error in the proportion of about one to ten arc of such value to the industries of the nation that if one of the newspapers than now freely criticise because two unverified forecasts for the District of Columbia have fallen on inauguration day were to omit from its pages tIe daily predictions of the weather its readers would compel it to restore them and if the Department or Congress were to close a sta tion of the Bureau in any part of the United States the property interests would demand its restorations Tjiis would not be the cast if the by steri7 cal abuse that is now being indulged in was justified WILLIS L MOOREf Chief U S Weather Bureau THREE IN FAMILYSHOT r Special to The Nave- sS4LtNESVILLO Much lrfThree members of the SckeeitzfAlIl t rf were

expression in the House During the three terms of the present Speaker it has been impossible to pass anything in the Hotsbof Representatives unless it ortet with the approval of Cannon and the little coterie that had gathered around him The ordinary Congressman had as much influence in the House of Representatives as the present writer He might just as well have stayed at hoine so far as sequring legislation waS concerned unless lie was a heriehrifan of the Speaker No bill could be even gotten out of the Committee of the House to which it was sent by the Speaker after its introduction unless it wits agreeable Jtp the Speaker No measure could be brought to a vote unless Cannon had been first privately seen by the member and terms made sT1 Souse machine was the great stumbling block in the way of the re formmeasures of the Roosevelt ad ministration The same machine stood iii tIle way of the reform tariff schedules of President Taft It was only by means of threatof a fight from the

shake out the skirt of the new spring gown she wore with a nianner that tbld she had it on that evening for the first time Vernon hastened to meet her and It was not until he had kissed her and released her from his embrace that she saw the dressin case he had set down in the hall Whats that for she asked in alarm Her smile faded suddenly leaving her face wholly serious I have to go back tonight he re plied J almost guiltily jYes Springfield in the morning But what about the dinner Well he began helplessly I guess youll have to get somebody In my place Amelia stopped and looked at him in amazementI the senate never met Mondays until five oclock in the afternoon she said It doesnt usually but I had a tel egram from Porter an hour ago theres to be a conference in the inorn mg drawiJ1groomappointment f I knew something would spoil ltf she said fatalistically And then she added presently I thought that Mon day afternoon session never lasted longer than a minute You never went down before until Monday night I know dear said Vernon apologetically but now that the session is nearing Its close were busier than we have been Cant you wire Mr Porter and get him to let you off she asked Vernon laughed He isnt my master he replied Well he acts like it she retorted and then as if she had suddenly hit upon an unanswerable argument she went on If thats so why do you pay any attention to his telegram- It isnt he dear Vernon explained Its the party We are to have a very I She Stopped on the Bottom Step Long Enough to Shake Out the Skirt Important conference to consider a sit uation that has just arisen I must not miss it- Well it ruins my dinner that3 all she said helplessly I wanted you here Vernon had come up from SprIng- field as usual for the weeks end ad journment and Amelia had counted on his waiting over as he always did forth Monday night train before going back to his duties in the senate More than all she had counted on him for a dinner she had arranged for Monday eveningWhat time does your train leave she asked in the voice of one who succumbs finally to a hopeless situation Eleven twenty he said But I brought my luggfige over with me so I could start from here at the last minute Ill go over to the Twenty third street station and catch it there Amelia had had the deep chair Ver non liked so well wheeled into the mellow circle of the light that fell from a tall lamp The lamp gave the only lightln the room and the room appeared vast in the dimness an effect somehow aided by the chill that was on if as if the fires or the Ansley house had been allowed to die down in an eag pretense of spring It was spring but spring in Chicago Sunday morning had been bright and thejake had sparkled blue in the warmwbid jt7 i u that came up somewhere from the southwest but by night the wind had wheeled around and the lake resumed its normal cold and menacing mood As Vernon sank into the chair he caught a narrow glimpse of the bbuie vard between the curtains of the large window In the brilliant light of a street lamp he could see a cold rain slanting down on to the asphalt How much longer is this legislature to last anyway Amelia demanded as she arranged herself in the low chair before him Thie weeks Vernon replied Three weeks more The girl drew the words out Yes only three weeks said Ver non And then we adjourn sine die The joint resplutlon fixes the date for June second Amelia said nothing She was usu ally disturbed when Vernon began to speak of his joint resolutions which was perhaps the reason why he spoke of them so often Of course Vernon went on with a certain impression of relief in his words I have another session after this When will that be Amelia asked Winter after next The governor though may call a special session to deal with the revenue question That would take us all back there again next winter Next Winter sire cried leaning over in alarm Do you mean youll have to be away all next winter too The significance of her tone was sweet to Vernon and he raised him self to take her hands in his You could be with me then dear est he said softly In Springfield she exclaimed Why not asked Vernon Other members have their wives with them some of them he qualified think ing how few of the members cared to have their wives with them during the session What could one do in Springfield pray Amelia demanded Go to the legislative hops suppose And dance reels with farmers nfld West side poll ticians She almost sniffed her dis gust Why dearest Vernon pleaded you do them a great injustice Some of them are really of the best people the society in Springfield Is excellent At the governors reception at the mansion the other night Now Morley Amelia said with a smile that was intended to reproach him mildly for this attempt to impose upon her credulity And besides Vernon hurried on suddenly taking a different course with her you could be a great help to me I never address the senate that I dont think of you and wish you were there to hear me I should like to hear you said Amelia softening a little But of course I couldnt think of appearing In the senate appearino doubt Well you wouldnt have to to overdressed Vernon retorted He seemed to have the advantage but he decided to forego It Ho sank back on the cushions of his clair folding his hands and plainly taking the rest a senator needs after his legislative labors Of course he said vrs neednt discuss it now The governor may not call the special session If the party but he paused thinking how little interested she was in the party a wish youd let politics alone Amelia went on relentlessly It seems soso common I dont see what there is In it to attract you And how am I ever going to explain your absence to those people tomOrrow night Tell them that politics detained you I sup pose She looked at him severely and yet triumphantly Ss if she had re absurdityWhy tell them that I was called suddenly to Springfield that an important matter in the senate The senate Amelia sneered But dearest Vernon began lean Ing over in an attitude for argument She cut him short Why Morley do you think Idever let on to those Eltons that I know any one In politics Dont they have polities In New ItThey know where Springfield is she went on irrelevantly Whatll they say when they receive our cards next fall he asked with a smile Well you

plain and are now pitted and scored by years of excavation At points around them great ridges o f earth branch out like the heads of railway embankments under construction These are the heaps of earth and debris cleared by the excavators from the surface of the ancient city and dumped clear of the mound on virgin soil where possible so as not to encumber the area of future work Along the tops of some of these ridges little iron tiptrucks may be teen pushed by a couple of Arab workmen along a light railway to the end of the shoot while others at the other end of the le and nearer the excavation in profeTss are filled by lines of Arab basketcarriers who clear away the soil as the diggers loosen it For years this busy work has been in progress and the photographs here published will give the reader some idea of the results which have been obtainedAt sight some of them may not strike one as very remarkable and it certainly requires some imagination to conjure lip from them the glories of ancient Babylon But In this tonne- tfon we may remark that the excav- tors themselves were for many yea In a like frame of mind and for a time they even doubted whether the stories of her ancient pomp and luxury might not have been Inventions 6n March 26 1899 Dr Koldewey began work on the mound of the Kasr or the Palace as the natives term one of the largest of the city mounds and from the very first considerable success of a sort rewarded his effort- Two palaces of King Nebuchadnezzar r Nero uncovered and a small temple of the goddess Ninmakh and a larger temple dedicated to the god Ninib were thoroughly excavated within a comparatively short time The next important discovery was the site of the great temple of Bel or Mardi the city god of Babylon in the mound Tell Amran but the ruins of the build ing were covered by such a huge a cumulation of debris that only a cor ner was laid bare Then Dr Koldewe traced the course of the Sacred road of Babylon Which led from the Tem pIe of Bel to the royal palaces Along this road at the Feast of the Ne Year the statue of the city god was borne In splemn procession to the palace where the king did homage grasping thp hands of the god in token of his fealty At the beginning of a reign this act was equivalent t coronation ceremony and whenever jthe king was in Babylon at the N- eWeirs tv festival he renewed his all e glance In this fashion to the national god i It was surely no mean achievement Ho lay bare once more to the sunlight t 1 Jtkli ancient holy athe worn blocks Af which had been trodden by the feet s r t I MillED BY THE JE5lRT EQltllJIfl TOIuIYroYER oiYEa nfHlLAcJ of priests and kings To pace the courts of Nebuchadnezzars palace and to gaze upon the very spot where he had sat upon his throne dispensing justice or directing his affairs of state was certainly some return for the labor of years But for all that Dr Koldewey and his assistants were dis satisfied For up till then scarcely a fragment of sculpture had been discovered and no object of great artistic or archaeological value All that met the excavators gaze were bricks burnt and unburnt spread in bitumen as pavements or piled up In massive walls and terraces The massive fortress wall on the east side of Nebu chadnezzars southern palace Is older than the palace and was filled In by 1ndheight of the platform on which the palace Is bjiilt The very temple walls which were found standing and in place were bare they were lined with no rich carvings or painted tiles but were covered with a thin lime wash like any modern Turkish sera It ofantd would not have scraped the walls Dr Koldewey was Inclined to regard the story of Babylbns former splendor as prickedely afterwards when he had transferred his main body of men from Tell Amran again to the Kasr he discovered the great Gate of Ishtar which has fully made up for the want of decoration upon the buildings found up to that time Ishtar the goddess of love and war was the most favored lady in the Babylonian pantheon and the gateway which Nebuchadnezzar erected in her hpnor was a worthy tribute to her greatness It is a dou ble gateway with interior chambers flanked by massive towers and wa erected at the end of the Sacred roa at the northeast corner of the southern palace But its unique character consists in the scheme of on its walls which are covered with row upon row of bulls and dragons represented In brilliant enameled bricks Some of these creatures are fiat others are raised in relief and the effect of these processions of mon sters even in the present ruined condition of the structure is remarkable L W KING M A F S A TO FARM INSANITY PLANT Deadliest Vegetable Known to Be In troduced Into Texas The deadly marihuana plant Is to be introduced into Texas from Mexico by

killed one night in February 1S8S just as he entered his library As always hap pens In the case of a mysterious mur der many suspects were arrested What would detectives do if there were no suspects In the case of Snell the most suspected murderer was one Willie Tascott Of course he was never arrested That is one reason perhaps why the police have insisted that he did the murder At certain times for several years the report reached Chicago that Tascott was in some remote part of the country The last heard about him he was in Alas TIm TASCOTT JOKE AND JAUNT ka or thereabout Whenever he was reported as being anywhere detectives were sent out The Tascott jaunt got to be a joke in the police department If Tascott provided he Is still alive should walk into Chicago someday and give himself
