Many Cities Want These Weather Bu- reau Information Bureaus Which Are Planed by the Depart- ment of Agriculture, Congress is expected to Investi- gate the weather bureau following charges m a d e concerning the department lJy James Berry. Mr. Berry formerly was the chief of the distributing division under Willis L. Moore, chief of the Unit- ed States weath- er bureau. Among the allegations Mr. Berry makes against the administration of Mr. Moore is one intended to point out favoritism in the location of weather bureau kiosks. What is a kiosk? Webster says it's a Turkish summer house. But that isn't the kind of kiosk which has aroused Mr. Berry. In a recent bulletin issued by Mr. Berry in following up his charges against Mr. Moore, he says: "The annual report of the chief of the weather bureau, page 22 and the year- book of the department of agricul- ture (1900), pageS0, says that kiosks have been supplied to 21 of the more i " Important sit es. Then Mr. Berry calls attention to beautiful kiosks erected by the de- partment in small cities, while New York, Philadelphia, Buffalo, Cincin- nati and many other large cities have no kiosks. Representative Moss didn't know l until he became chairman of the com- mittee on expenditures in the com- mittee of agriculture what a kiosk was. When word got out that my committee was going to investigate ..... e lained Mr the weather nureau, xp 7" Weether Bureau Kiosk. Moss, "I got a good many letters tell- ing me to keep my eye open for the kloskl. Some of the letters said these kiosks were tacked away in re- mote parts of the country "and were no good to any one. I admit that Just then I didn't know whether a kiosk was a kind of animal or the name for a new-fangled plant One day a fel- low living down in Chattanooga Bent me a postal card with the picture of a kiosk on it, and then, of course, I found out what it was." On the kiosk is displayed the maximum and minimum thermome- ters. They give the two extremes of temperature every hour of the day and night In the same space is the hair hygrometer, the thermograph and the rainfall gauge. The hair hy- grometer shows the relative humid- ity, the rainfall gauge, the precipita- tion and the thermograph the tem- perature every hour of the day and night. Records are made on a long strip of paper by means of a clock cylinder. A pen marks the variation in temperatures. Comedy of Stolen Speeches. Senator "Bob" Taylor of Tennes- see once played a metn trick on his brother Alfred, and It was not until they were rival candidates for the governorship of Tennessee that Alfred got even. When they were schoolboys Alfred; was selected to make a speech on the l last day of school and "Bob" was a l little Jealous. It wu suggested to the teacher that some of the other boys should be called on previous to the main feature. Among those boys was "Bob," who had stolen his brother's speech and proceeded to deliver it aa his own. Thirty years later when they were campaigning together for the gover- norship "Bob" had prepared a flow- ery address on music, but Alfd, who spoke first, stole the speech and even- ed up for the schoolday affair by de- livering It, U. 8.

This statement was made re- cently by Gen. Arthur Murray, chief of the coast artillery, who has charge of the defense of Hawaii and who has been on the ground making personal observations. The war department knows that Page Seven The Lardest and Most CompieteStock in the State to Select From store at Honolulu and Pearl harbor. A part, and a most important part, of the strategy of the Joint army and navy board is that in case of an at- tack on Hawaii to hold it at any cost, because, as President Taft has stated, it is the key to the situatoin and of the Pacific. As one official put it, Japan would be blundering around in a fog in the Pacific while the garrison remained firm in Hawaii. Of course there is a magnificent scheme of d@ fense from foreign battleships for both Pearl harbor and Honolulu. This is what Is contemplated at Pearl Harbor and Honolulu: Between two stations six 12-inch guns, or the two 1S-inch guns now there and four 14-inch guns; four six-lnch guns, 18 12-1nch mortars and eight 60qnch searchlights. The present necessity as shown in the plan rev.ealed is that a large nunber of mortars be distrib- uted at points on the northern part of the island at various bays, which have Just been charted, to prevent the land. ing of Japanese troops. CITY. KILLS THEIR CONCEIT How the New Members of Congress Are Regarded in the Nation'o. Capital. There is nothing more pitiful on the stage of national politics than the new and verdant member of congress, be he senator or representative, and espe- cially is thus true of the new members of the upper house. So vast is the measure of importance of a new M. C. in hie own district or his own state that for the first few months of his service he wanders about Washington In a dazed state, wondering if it can be really possible that the lple of Washington realize l is the new member from Podunk or the new sen- ator from such and such a state. Little work of importance is intrust- ed to the green member, and from him Is expected a rpect for his elders not dissimilar to that exacted from the little "pleb" at the nonal military and naval aAemles. Most men who have attained to the dignity of being one of the 9 senators of the United States come to Washington with a large timate of their importance, and never Is this so true as when such a man has worn the ermine be- fore entering the arena of politics. But shorn of all power to fine for "contempt of court," assigned to the chairmanship of some such impor- tant committee as that on the "dis- position of useless Waste paper" and rarely or never consulted regarding the affairs of state, even the Jurist statesman is obliged to submit to the good humored patronage of the older members until in due course of time he comes to realize the actual meas- ure of his importance in the affairs of the nation.

A committee went down to Cape Henry to inspect a site for a pr posed new fort to protect Washing- ton and Baltimore from attack by foreign navies in case of war. Ordi- narily it is difficult to get a commit- tee together for one of these field sessions, but this looked like a chance to play hockey for a day from sizzling Washington, and every mem- ber of the committee took a dozen friends. A camera fiend got a focus on "Uncle Joe" Cannon while he was cavorting around after a clambake that had been provided for the party and wa about to take his photo. graph, but the gentleman from Dan- ville turned loose such a torrent of cuss words that the amateur photog- rapher fled. "Some day," said Uncle Joe, as he looked at the fleeing photographer, "I'm liable to lose my temper and throw one of those freaks into the ocean when I get tired telling him what he is." and All Kinds of Tombstones LITTLE ROCK, ARK.
