title of a book being written by W. I).
Moody, a prominent jobber and an
•mployer iu Chicago, and one of the
party or the Chicago Commercial As-
sociation that visited Shawnee on
Saturday. In tin book, which gives
the experience of a man who has seen
all sides of commercial life, from the
irummers' standpoint, Mr. Moody lays
great stress on the fact, so often over-
looked, that one must deal with the
soul and heart of his employes as well
nr. with their mental faculties. One
must study the shortcomings of men
and be charitablt with their faults.
Eventually, by close application and
study, many excellent commercial men
make a success where without a char
liab.e hard to guide they would be
failures In 11 € 1r profession Seiling
go-; jh is a science, and one of the

most profitable professions there is.
Mr. Moody claims that In Chicago

would be between five thousand and
ten thousand dollars each.

The board of directors of the Retail

Mo., has Issued a circular letter tc
members of the association, in which
newspapers are recognized as the only
advertising mediums to be used by lo-

The letter refers to a resolution
along the same line which was adopt-
ed by the association some time ago
and states that, inasmuch us the local
newspapers are working with the re-
tail merchants for the upbuilding of
St Joseph, they are entitled to all of
the advertising patronage of the local

It was widely reported a day or so
ago that the interests which have
been seeking to control of the Wash
Ington Railway & Electric Co., with
the intention of placing William Loeb.
Jr., secretav\ to the president, at the
head of the system, had abandoned
their efforts. The story proves to
have been untrue. It is now said on
good authority that these interests
have secured sufficient stock to as
sure their control, and that the I^oeb
program will be carried out.
Boise, Idaho, May 20.—Prosecutor
Koelsch reported against any action ]
looking to the citing for contempt of
court of the representatives of the Ak
sociated I'resH, the New York Sun,
and the New York Times, as the re-
Milt of a publication by them of In-
terviews with llary Orchard, the prin.
cipnl witness against William D. Hay-
wood. Koelsch had been appointed
by Judge Wood to investigate the case
and find out if there was ground on
which to base action against the men,
the charge having been made that the
interview, which staled that Orchard
would be a convincing and truth tell-
ing witness was given out for the pur-
pose of strengthening the case of the
'ate and injuring the defense.
The chief contention of the prose
cutor in discouraging the contempt
proceedings was that It would first
be necessary to show malicious intent
on the part, of the offending newspaper
men and that this would be impossi-
ble. He also pointed out that even
though the interview was harmful to
the defense, much had already been
stated that was likewise harmful to
"While two wrongs never make a
right," he said, "still this is a matter
that also had to be considered. I
therefore urge that the court promul-
gate such stringent rules regarding
what shall or shall not be published
as will prevent absolutely the appear-
ance of any matter in this county
tending to Influence any veniremen."
Koelsch exonerated all of the news-
paper men from any intention of vU>
lating any ethics of propriety and de-
clared that If they erred at all, it
was simply through excessive zeal to
serve the public. „
Pursuant to the a lion taken by the
Territorial Republican Committee at
a meeting held May 2, 1907, a county

"Guthrie's doom Is sealed," says the
"State Capitol," In speaking of the
chances of Guthrie remaining at the
caplto' in case the constitution is
adopted. We always were of the opin-
ion that the "State Capitol" had an
ulterior motive In Its fight on state-
hood under the present conditions.
But because Guthrie is to loose the
Inland Waterway Commission to In-
spect the Missouri, but that body said
It did not have the time to do so. "I'll
do It myself," said Mr. Plnchot. "and
