Republican Leadors More Par dons Expected Gov Wlllson lost Thursday finally closed tho Goebel murder case by granting pardons to exGov W S Taylor and exSecretary of State Charles Flnley Tho Governor also granted pardons to John Powers brother of Caleb Powers indicted as an accessory to the crime to Holland Whittaker of Butler county to Jno Davis ot Louls vllle and to Zach Steele of Dell county Whittaker Davit and Steele never left the State While Taylor and Flnley have lived outside the Com monwealth John Powers It Is said has been roaming about In Honduras Those over whom Indictments arc left hanging are Wharton Golden of Knox county now la Colorado Frank Cecil of Dell county now a railroad detective In St Louis and William II Culton of Owoloy county said to hate died recently In the West These cases with tho possible exception of that of Cecil will It Is said bo dismissed This action will leave Henry E Youtsey of Campbell county now serving a life sentence In tho State penitentiary as the only person to suffer for tho murder of GocbcJ The reason for the pardon of these men arc fully set forth by the Gover nor in his pardons but are too long to be published In Cull The most Im portant of the pardons being that of Gov Taylor ve print extracts from the governors statement showing his excellent reacons for the act The murder of William Goebel destroyed every chance of Gov Taylors winning tho contest and every sensible man felt this at the time No man ofI common seine or any knowledge of I public feeling could have thought any other result posolble It was the worst crime In our history and it did more harm than any other murder ever committed In Kentucky For years it seemed as it there never would be an end of the political uso of tho Goebel murder to keep In cam utlllaswas claimed that the Democratic nomi nee for Governor would not pardon Taylor Powers and others and that the Republican nominee would pardon them If elected I made no answer to these speeches until I came to the home of Powers In the mountains where I told the people his friends that I would not prejudge those cases that I would not promise anybody ei ther to pardon or not to pardoa those men but that it tho cases ever came before me I would tako them up off dally and decide them on the merits just like other cases and that I was anxious for the conviction and punishment of every person guilty of the murder of William Goebel as any one else In Kentucky The only evidence In all of tho four trials ot Powers and three trials of Howard by which tho prosecution In any way attempted to connect Gov Taylor with the murder was tho test mony as to his writing to got Howard to como to Frankfort to kill William Goebel and tending to show that Howard on the request In that letter did como to Frankfort entered into the plot and committed the murder Out Howaru did not kill Goebel and Gov Taylor could not be guilty of getting Howard to do what he did not do While Governors Mount and Dur bin of Indiana refuced the requisi tions no application was made to their successor Gov Hanly during his four years and as I have said no request has been mado of me to send a re quisition to tho Democratic Governor Gov Marshall who succeeded Gov Hanly There can be no doubt that if I had sent for them they would have como to Kentucky without a requisition and still less that If I had sent a requisition to jQov Hanly during his term howould have honor ed It It seems from this delay of five and a halt years in taking may steps to bring this case to trial that tho officers In the prosecution have not wished to do so fU was my hope and promise to our people that I would try to bo a missionary of peace and good will and to end tho angry strife of years over these cases and to do my duty In them faithfully and uprightly and I bare kept the faith It Is the highest call of duty and conscience now to end th prosecution ot this man who Is clearly not guilty and to take this case out oC the field ot public and political TAFT UNJUSTLY ACCUSED Already there are beginning to be heard complaints that Pres Taft is failing to out the policies of Roosevelt and that the government is falling into the hands of the reactionaries It is to be expected that nny form of criticism which is available will be used by some people and such do not care to be convinced but for those who are honestly alarmed by Mr Tafts attitude we would like to point out a few facts longbeforethey have worked for the same ends tho by more or less different methods They have agreed on almost every important public policy and Mr Roosevelt did not begin any important movement without plannedthemost policiesItadministration to know much of anythiug about what Mr Taft is going to do except from this method of re membering what be is likely to do But so far as be has taken any action thereis not the slightest ground for criticism The Standard organlied road stock limit law have both been framed and are watiug a favor able time to be presented to Congressin every possible way it seems to us Mr Taft has hegira the work of carrying on the policies predecessorTheThere will not be so much excitement about the Taft methods Roosevelt advertised to get the people interested Taft will work as quitely as possible BO as not to porklogfor any criticism along that line yet and there is not ground for it anyway TAYLOR AND FINLEY PARDONED In issuing free pardons to ExGov Taylor Charles Finley and the others charged with the Goebel conspiracy Gov Willson has yearstheof both parties and has done incalculable harm to both and to the controversyhavefor the state to recover The first step towards that much needed recovery was the removing of the disturbing cause the indictments against lending Republicans from the field of controversy This wasbegun with the pardon of Powers and Howard and is now nearly complete When the other cases have been dropped it will be finish ed Rnt state can once more establish its politics on a sane basis controversy I am absolutely sure that Gov William S Taylor had no part In nor thought of tho murder of Wil liam goebcU TREASURERS REPORT Quarterly

Letter Washington D C April 26 1909 The Senate leaders are having trouble in trying to pass the Aldrich Dill Senator Aldrich laid the Dill before the Senate In a speech of only three quarters of an hour the shortest speech ever made In submitt ing a tariff bill He said that the Dill as ho has framed It and intro duced It will bring In all the money payItswill be no need for an Income tax and Senator Aldrich Isopposed to the income tax There are two classes of advocates for the Income tax The Democrats uphold It as a reform In taxation almost n socialist measure They also favor It because the Republicans do not do so Just to be contrary Then In the second place there are a num ber of Republicans who believe In It because It will bring In the money which the nation needs These in dependent Republicans do not think that the Aldrich Dill will yield as much revenue as the Rhode Island Senator says it will They think that an Income tax la sure to como within a few years and that the Republicans had better make a trial of It now as soon as possible and get the credit for It On tho other hand the regular Republicans have nothing to say against the income tax They admit that If a man pays taxes In propor tion to the amount of money he make each year the rich men will pay a far larger share of the countrys ex penses than at present But they hesitate to make a start on a new kind of taxation so long as the time tried tariff will furnish all the money requiredThe hinges to a large ex tent on the attitude of President Taft and President Taft is keeping quiet It la known however that he would be perfectly a1thoujhI fix his signature to an law yet he Is not In any haste to have the country begin a new ex periment if the old methods are still doing the work well Ho Insists that the tariff shall really be revised downward and lie Is Inclined to think that the Aldrich Dill does not lower the rates as a whole Therefore even If the Dill In Its present form would yield sufficient revenue without an Income tax feature Taft would still oppose It as leaving the tariff rates too high If Aldrich wants Tafts support he must lower the rates on several Important goods and then show that he can raise money enough with this weaker bill to pay the governments expenses without re sorting to an Income tax But Aldrich Is making a great strug gle to get the Republicans In the Senate Into line against the Income tax No good Republican likes to side with the Democrats and help them pass a measure which they advocated long before the Republicans did Still it Is true that Ellhu Root I exGovernor Cummins Senator Dur ton and others of the new men seem I to have been income tax men from the start and that even some of the oldtime regular Republicans Uko Senator Nelson and Senator Dolllver have torn away from the Aldrich crowd this week Dolllver wanted a placo on the Finance Committee and his action may simply be la retalia tion upon Aldrich for not giving him the position It Is thought that un less Taft comes out srongly In favor of an Immediate Income tax provision the other fractious Senators will swing Into line and Aldrich have his way But tho debates this week aro warm in the extreme There are a large number of mill ionaires In the Senate and it hasI been figured out that these gentle men alone would have to pay well over a million dollars a year to the Government 1C an Income tax JawI Ic passed That Is one reason why i somo of them do not dare to oppose the law The sensation ot the week has been tho attack made upon Census Maker S N D North by

tried In Rich mond before the Federal Court I t v SYNOPSIS The story opens at Harvard where Col Rupert Winter U S A visiting saw the ulclde of young Mercer Ho met Cary Morcer brother of the dead student Three years later In Chicago In 1906 CoL Winter overheard Cary Mercer ap parently planning to kidnap Archlo the colonels ward and to gain possession of Aunt Rebecca Winters millions A Miss Smith was mentioned apparently as a conspirator Winter unexpectedly met n relative Mrs Mllllcent Melville who told him that his Aunt Rebecca Archie and the lattere nurse Miss Janet Smith were to leave for tho west with the colonel and Mrs Melville A great finan clad magnate was aboard tho train on which Col Winter met his Aunt Rebec- ca Miss Smith and Archie He set his orderly Sergt Haley to watch over Cary Mercer CHAPTER IIContinued Cary was rich but after ho had pent his youth with Incredible indus try and a great deal of ability to build up a steel business and had put It into a little combinationnot a big trust just a genuine corporation somo of the financial princes wanted it for a clubto knock down bigger game I reckonand proceeded to cheapen tho stock In order to control It Cary held on desperately bought more than ho could hold mortgaged everything else but they were too big for him to fight It was in 1903 you know when they had an alleged financial panic and scared tho banks Cary went to the wall and Phil with him and poor Phil killed himself Afterward Carys wlfo died ho surely did have a mean time And to tell you tho truth Ber tie I think there has been a little kink in Carys mind ever since Did you hold any of Garys stock lie was piecing his puzzle together Yes but my stock was all paid for and I held on to it now it is over par and paying dividends Oh tho property was all right had It been kept in honest hands and run for Itself Tho trouble with Cary was that In order to keep control of the property ho bought a lot of shares on margins and when they began to run downhill ho was obliged to borrow money on his actual holdings to protect his fictitious ones Tho stock Went so low that he was wiped out He wouldnt take my advice earlier In tho game and I knew that It would only be losing money to lend It to him laterstill sometimes I have been rather sorry I didnt Would I better try tho spade Bertie or the diamond 7 Tho colonel advised tho spade Ho wondered whether ho should repeat to his aunt tho few sentences which ho bad overheard from Mercer and his companion but a belief that old ago worries easily added to his natural mans disinclination to attack tho fem trine nerves tipped tho scales against frankness So Instead ho began to talk about Archie what was he like was ho fond of athletics or was he s bookish lad Aunt Rebecca reported that ho liked riding and golf but he was not very rugged and since his fathers death ho had seemed listless to a degree But he ls better now she added with a traco of eagerness quite foreign to her usual manner Janet Smith has roused him up and what do you suppose sho has done Out really you arc tho cause n queried tho colonel Just you Archie Janet argued Is he kind of nature that must have some ono to bo devoted to And has he taken a fancy to her Or to you Aunt Rebeccas eyes dulled a little and her delicate lips were twisted by a smile which had more wistfulness than humor in It Im not a lovable person anyhow he does not love eas ily We are on terms of tho highest respect even admiration but wo havent got so far as friendship far less comradeship Janet is different Out I dont mean Janet sho has grown absurdly fond of him and I think hes fond of her but what she did was to make him fond of you You Gen Rupert Winter why that boy could pass an examination on your exploits and not miss a question Janet and ho have a scrapbook with every printed word about y9u I do believe And she has been amazingly shrewd We didnt know how to get tho youngster back to his sports while he was out of school and In fact an old woman like me is rather bewildered by such a young creature anyhow but Janet rode with him you are a remarkable rider I helped there because I re membered some anecdotes about you at West Polnt But my dear aunt Dont Interrupt me Bertie Its a distinctly American habit And wo read in the papers that you had learned that Japanese trick fighting jlujltsuand were a wonder Im not I assure you tllalbeast of I i a newspaper man Never mind if you are not a won der youll havo to be you can tako lessons In lots Angeles thero are quantities cT Japs thero Why even in Chicago Janet picked up one and wo imported him and Arcblo took lessons and practices every day Theres a book in my bag in the rack there a very interesting book Janet and I have both read It so we couldt l talk to Archie YOU would hotter skim r r 7Gi V ill i iOc23Y OGh4T T1fANlTrl- UTij a7L MANyp HOllR It over a little if you really arent an expert enough so you can talk jiu jitsu anyhow we cant bo destroying Archies Ideals until he gets a better appetiteWell upon my word breathed the colonel Do you expect mo to be a fake hero I never took more than two lessons in my life That reporter Interviewed my teacher who was killed in the Japaneso war by tho way ho went to tho army after my second lesson Ho didnt know any English beyond yes and if you please and ho used them both on the reporter who let his own fancy go up like a balloon Well where Is tho book He found it easily and with a couple of volumes of another kidney over which he grinned The Hound of the Baskcrvilles and tho Leaven worth Case Ive read them too ho said theyre great And do you still like detective stories You would have made a grand sleuth yourself Aunt Becky Again ho had half a mind to speak of the occurrence at tho station again he checked tho impulse I remember ho added that you used to hold strenuous opin ionsYou mean my thinking that tho reason crimes escapo discovery is not that criminals are so bright but that detectives in general are so particularly stupid Oh yes I think that still So does Sir Conan Doyle And I havo often wished I could measure my own wits once with a really flan criminal intellect It would bo worth the risk God forbid said tho colonel hastilyThere came a tap at tho door Mllllcent groaned Aunt Rebecca I know the creaking of her stays No dont stay Bertlo go and get Janet and a rescue bridge party as quick aS you can Tho original and only Aunt Rebec ca thought the colonel at tho door smiling But somehow tho handsome old dame never had seemed so nearly human to him before CHAPTER III The Train Robbers When the colonel awoko next morn ing tho train was running smoothly over tho Iowa prairies while low hills and brick factory chimneys announced Council Bluffs Tho landscape was wide and monotonous a sweep of il limitable corn fields In their winter disarray or bleakly fresh from tho plow all painted with a paletto hold Ing only drabs and browns hero and there a dab of red In a barn or of white in windmill or house but these livelier tints BO scattered that they were no moro than pin spots on tho picture Tho very sky was as dimly colored as tho earth lighter yet of no brighter hue than the fog which smoked up from the ground Later In tho spring this same landscape would bo of a delicate and charming beauty in summer or autumn it would make tho beholders pulse throb with its glorious fertility but on a blurred March morning it web as dreary as the reveries of an aging man who has failed- Nevertheless Rupert Winters first conscious sensation was not depres sion only a llttlo tingle of Interest and excitement such as stings pleasantly one who rises to a prospect of conflict in which ho has tho confidence of his own strength By Jovo ho wondered whatever makes mo feel so kiddish His first impulse was to peep through his curtains into the car It wore its early morning aspect of muf fled berths and stuffy curtains among which Miss Smiths trig carefully fin ished presence In a fresh white shirt waist attended by the pleasant whiffs of cologne water gave tho beholder a certain refreshing surprise Ono hand white and firm and beautifully cared for held a wicker bottle source of the pleasant whiffs her sleek black braids wore tolled about her comely head and tho hair grew very prettily in a blunted point on the creamy nape of her neck It was really dark brown hair but It looked black against tho whiteness of her skin She had very capablelooking shoulders the colonel noted and a fiat back perhaps she wasnt pretty but In a long while ho had not seen a moro attractive looking woman She made him think of a Bonno Collno rose somehow Ho could hear her talking to sumo ono behind the berths curtains Could those doleful moans emerge from Archie Could a WInter boy bo whimpering about the jar of tho train in that fashion Immediately ho was aware that the sufferer was Randall for Miss Smith spoke Bring the tea and lie down again Ill attend to Mrs Winter Dont you worry Getting solid with Randall commented tho colonel WhIch Is shekindhearted or an accomplished vII lalnosa Well its interesting any howBy tho time he bad made his toilet tho train was slacking speed ready to halt In Council Bluffs and all his sus picions rushed on deck again at the sight of Miss Smith and Archlo walk tog outside Stood on the Platform Looking to Right and Left lIe joined them and ho had to admit that Miss Smith looked as pleased as Archie at his appearance Nor did she send a single furtive glance slant ing or backward whllo they walked In tho crisp clean air Once tho train had started and Miss Smith was In tho drawlng room breakfasting with Mrs Winter and Archlo ho politely attend ed Mrs Millicent through tho morning meal In the diningcar It was SO good a meal that ho naturally al though illogically thought better of Miss Smiths prospects of Innocence and cheerily ho sought Haley lie found him in the smoking compartment of tho observation car having for companions no less personages than tho magnate and a distinguished looking New Englander who Rupert Winter made no doubt was a Harvard professor of rank and renown among his learned kind Ho knew tho ear marks of tho species Tho Now Eng landers pencil was flying over a llttlo Improvised pad of telegraph blanks while ho listened with absorbed Inter est to Haleys rich Irish tones There was a little sldewlso lunge of Haleys mouth a faint twinkle of Haleys frank and simple eyes which the colonel appraised at very nearly their real value Ho knew that It Isnt in Irish Amori can nature to perceive a wideopen ear and not put something worth hearing Into It Besides his sharp ears had brought him a key to the discourse a sorrowful remark of tho sergeants as he entered Yes sor thin wather torchures is terrible Ho glanced suspiciously from ono of Haleys audience to tho other Tho newspaper cartoonist had pictured on all kinds of bodies of preying crea tures whether of the earth or air tho high brows tho round head tho dell cato features tho thin cheeks tho straight lino of tho mouth and the mild inexpressive eyes of tho man be fore him Ho had been extolled as a farsighted benefactor of the world and execrated picturesquely as the king of pirates who would scuttlo tho business of his country without a qualmWinter amid his own questionings and problems could not help a scrutiny of a man whoso power was greater than that of medieval kings Ho sat consuming a cigarette more between his fingers than his lips and glancing under drooping eyelids from questioner to narrator At the colonels entrance he looked np as did Haley who rose to his feet with an uncon scious salute Id bo glad to spake wld youso a ralnntt if I might general said Haley about where I put your dress shute case sor The colonel of course did not ex pect any remarks about a suitcase when ho got Haley by himself at the observation end of the car but what he did get was of sufficient import to drive out of his mind a curt lecture about blackening the reputation of the army with lies about the Philippines Haley had told him that he bad seen tho man with tho two moles on his faco jump out of his own car at Council Bluffs Ho had simply stood on the platform looking to right and left for a moment then he had swung him self back on the car Haley had watched him walk down the aisle and enter tho drawing room Ho did not come out Haley had found out that the drawing room belonged to Edwin S Keatchnm tho big railroad man sor It doesnt seem likely that ho would bo an accomplice of a kidnaper mused the colonel Tho man might have gono in thero while ho was out Sure ho might sor twas mcsllf thinking that same and I wlnt be yant to tho observation car and there tho ould glntleman was smoking And you slopped to tell yarns to that other gentleman Instead of getting back and following No sor I beg your pardon sor I was kaplng mo eyes open and on him for himself was In the observation car where you are now sor until we como in and thin ho walked back careless like to his own car Will I be nfther following him Yes dont lose him They did not lose him they both saw him enter tho drawingroom and almost Immediately come out and sit down In one of tho open sections See if you cant find out from tho conductor whero he Is going tho col onel proposed to Haley and he frowned over his thoughts for a bad quarter of an hour at the window Tho precipitate of all this mental ferment was a determination to stick close to the boy saying nothing Ho hoped that when they stopped over night at Salt Lako City according to Aunt Rebeccas plan they might shako off tho brothers compauy Tho day passed uneventfully Ho played bridge with Mrs Millicent and Miss Smith and Archie while Aunt Rebecca kept up her French with ono of Bcntzons novelsAfterward she said grimly to him I think you must havo been convert ed out In the Philippines you never so much as winced that last hand no you sat there smiling over your ruin as sweetly as if you enjoyed it The colonel smiled again Ah but you seo I did enjoy it didnt you no tice tho hand No Well it was worth watching It was tho rubber game they were 24 and wo were 26 and we were on the seventh round Miss Smith had mado it hearts Sho Bat on my left dummy on my right MIllicent had tho lead Sho had four little spades a little club tho queen of hearts and a trey dummy had tho queen the ten and the nine of spades It had tho king of hearts and three clubs with tho Jack at the top I had a lovely diamond suit which I hadnt had a chanco to touch top sequence ace king queen I had tho jack of trumps and the jack of spades and tbo queen and a little club I hadnt a lead you understand Mllllcont had IQOPYRIGH7IV taken five tricks and they had taken ono they needed six to win tho game wo needed two see Well Mtlllcont hadnt any diamonds to lead mo and unhappily she didnt think to lead trumps tLwtct itt3JT y which would have made a world of difference She led a club dunnny put on tho jack I know Miss Smith had tho ale and one low heart no clubs a lot of low diamonds and sho might or might not havo a spade I figured that sho had tho aco and a little ono If she would trump in with tho little ono as ninety nIne out of a hundred women would have done her aco and her partners king would fall together or at worst ho would have to trump her diamond lead after sho had led out her king of spades and lead spades which I could trump and bring In all my dia monds Do you tako In tho situation You moan that Janot had tho king of spades alone tho aco and the little trump and four worthless diamonds I see It Is a chance for the grand ooup I reckon she played It Sho did cried the colonel with unction Sho slapped that ace on tho trick she modestly led her king of spades gathered In my jack then sho stole my child away my little jack of trumps It fell on dummys king and dummy let out his spades and I had to see that wholo diamond suit slaugh tered They made their six tricks the game nnd tho rubber and I wanted to clap my hands over tho neatness of It AuntnobecrnYou remember tho epitaph dont you Dortio Sho was BO pleasant Yet Janet has had a heap of trouble but after all happiness Is not a condition but a temperament I suppose Janet has the temperament Shes a Rood loser too and she never takes advan tage of tho rules Sho certainly loves a straight game reflected tho colonel I con fess I dont like tho kind of woman that Is always grabbing a trick It some ono plays out of tho wrong hand Ho said something of the kind to Millicent obtaining but scant sympa thy in that quarter Shes deep Dortio I told you that was tho only reply but Im watching I havo rea son for my feeling Maybe you havo been misinformed ventured her brother in lnw with proper meeknessNot retorted she sharply I happen to know that she worked against me with tho Daughters Daughters tho colonel repeated Inanely your daughters Certainly not The Daughters of the Revolution Its a mighty fine society that did a lot during tho Spanish war And you are tho state president arent youNo Rupert returned Mrs Mel vlllo with dignity I am no longer stato regent Hy methods that would shame the most hardened men politi cians I was defeated why didnt you read about IU You know I only camo back from

scandal ous There woro at least thrco lunch cons given against me It wasnt tho congress it was tho lobby defeated mo And their methods I would not believe that gentlewomen could stoop to such Infamy of misrepresentation Tho colonel chewed his mustache ho felt for that reporter of tho Chicago paper ho was evidently getting a phonographic record now ho made an Inarticulate rumble of sympathy In his throat which was as tho clucking of tho driver to the mottled horso Mrs Melville gesticulated with Delsnrtlan grace as she poured forth her woesIThey accused mo of a domineering spirit they said I was trying to setup a machine II I worked for them many a time halt tho night at my desk never was a totter unanswered I did half tho work of tho corresponding secretary yet at tho crucial mo ment she betrayed mo I learned more in thoso two days of tho petty jealousy tho pitiless malevolence of some women than I had known all my life before but at tho same time to the faithful band of frlenllllUtho colonel had tho sensation of listening to the record again whoso fidelity was proof against rldlculo and cruel misrepresentation I return a gratitude that will nover wano Rupert sho turned herself In tho seat and waved tho open palm of her hand In a graceful and dramatic gesture thoso women not only stooped to malignant falsehoods they not only trampled parliamentary law underfoot but they circulated through the hall a cartoon called tho Making of tho Slate Of course wo had our quarters at a hotel and after tho evening meet ing after I had retired in fact a bell boy brought me a message It was necessary to have a meeting at once to decide for tho secretaryship as we had found taut Mrs Ellennere was false The ladles la the adjoining rooms and the others of us on the board who were loyal came into my chamber Iluport will you believe It thoso women had a grotesque picture of us with faces cut out of tho news papersof course all our pictures were in tho papcrsmnd they had tho audacity and tho meanness to picture me InIn the garments of night I That was pretty tough Dut wheroidoes Miss Smith come in Sho was at tho convention She is a Daughter 1vo always said we are too lax In our admissions Who drew tho picture It may not be Miss Smith but she does draw Im sure that she worked against me sho covered up aher footprints so that I barn no proof but I suspect her Shos deep Hcrtlo shes deep nut she cant hoodwink mo Ill find her out The colonel experienced tho embar rassment that Is the portion of a rash man trying to defend one womanlagainst another ha retreated ho perceived defence was In vain but ho did not feel hid growing opinion of Miss Smiths innocence menaced by Mrs Melvilles convictions She played too square a game for a kidnaperand Smith was the com monest of names No there must be some explanation Rupert Winter had lived too long not to distrust tho plaus Rile Btirfaco clew It Is the Improba ble that always happens and tho 1mIpossible most of the time Aunt Re becca had onco said Ho quite agreed with her whimsical phrase Nothing happened to arouse his sus picions that day Haley reported that Cary Mercer was going on to San Francisco Tho

had not much to say for himself and jumped whenever hit boss spoko to him Thero was also a t valet an Englishman who did not ie spend properly to conversational overtures They wore nil going In got oft nt Denver Haley was not misinformed as the colonel perceived with his own eyes and ho saw Cary Mercer bow In part Ing to the groat man who requited tho low salute with a gruff nod Hero was an opportunity for a nearer glimpse of Mercer possibly for that explanation In which Winter still had a lurking hope Ho caught Mercer just In the car doorway and politely greeted him Mr Mercer I think You may not remember me Col Winter I mot you in Cambridge three years ago It seemed a brutal thing to do to fOe call a mooting under such circum stances but If Mercer could give the oxplanatlon ho would oxcuso him It was better than suspecting an Juno cent man Hut there was no oppor tunity for explanation Mercer turned a blank and coldly suspicious face toward him I beg pardon ho oald In his southern way I think you have made a mistake In the person And arc you not Mr Cary Mercer The colonel felt tho disagreeable re semblance of Ills own speeches to those mado In newspaper stories by the gentleman who wishes his old friend to change a = 50 bill or to engage In an amusing game with a thimble Mercer saw It as well as he Try some ono from tho country he remarked with an unpleasant smile

hogs by a chemist at tho State University of Missouri is tremendously Important and it Is said to be true Tho hog may not figure In the popular mind as an inviting subJoct for a rhapsody but when you come to consider his economic relations to the concerns of humanity where will you find another animal with more points In his fuvor than just the hog with all of his bristles nnd his untidy habits Tho hog comes Into this world al most without exception in a gre garlous form One never hears of a little pig or a mature hog being spoiled because he Is the only member of the family There are always others and plenty of them to share the favors that como to the hog household It is quite usual for the family to number eight or ten and a litter of 12 is not pile nomenalWell within less than a year of tho birth of a litter of pigs they are ftlll grown hogs carrying several hun dred pounds of the best meat that ever camo from the hand of nature Again each several hog when ho goes to market carries in his corpulent carcass about ton bushels of corn If you have given the subject tho at tendon It calls for you can see how much this saves the honest farmer in the way of freight charges In tho transportation of corn But the hogs usefulness Is by no means limited to his life Iris real virtues begin to shlno forth after ho is doadITo tho hog belongs tho high priv liege and the honor of furnishing tho poor man food Not that tho food is always cheap but It is more readily produced and more plentiful than any other sort of animal nourishment and for quality It challenges competition and is without a rival But It In when It comes to Infinite variety that the hog shines as a food producer lie is good to eat In any spot or place From his head to his tall he Is a compendium of delicious parts Kansas City Star Curly HairMeant Obstinacy fhe curlyhaired man uttered an ex clamation of amaze Strange ho said I have been drawn for juries time and again but I havo never served They

trnththo lawyer persisted Curlybends are as ob stinate as mules They think they know It all They disagree with every bodyIt is because ho hastened to add their curly hair makes them so good looking In

the Interstate commerce com mission Investigate the charges mado by Senators Smoot and Sutherland and Mr Howell of Utah against the Harriman railroads President Taft Wednesday put his own antitrust pol icy Into action Tho roads named in tho complaint filed with Mr Taft are tho Southern Pacific Union Pacific Oregon Short Line Oregon Railroad Navigation San Pedro Los Angles Salt Lake Denver Rio Grande Missouri Pa rifle Colorado Midland Colorado Southern Chicago Burlington Quincy Rock Island and Atchison Topeka Santa Fc Tho charge is made that these roads discriminate in rates against Salt LJco and other Intermountain cities on shipments from the east The com plaint cites numerous Instances As examples they say that a car of cocoa beans shipped from Chicago to Utah cities costs 594 In freight thrift whllo the same shipment to San Fran cisco costs but 3225 A car of nails 40000 pounds costs 440 to Utah points while the same car It carried 1000 miles further west to the coast costs but 160 In letters to tho president accom panying the complaint it is pointed out that the enormous earnings of the Harriman lines from which big divi dends are paid on stocks indicate that the railroad rates complained of are enormously profitable and that lIar rlman derides power of any less im portanco than the federal government and apparently cares little for that KIDNAPER TRIES SUICIDE

have been averted by the narrowest margin Late Thursday afternoon it was learned that Boyle suddenly became ill Wednesday Ho was found lying upon the floor of his cell in the agony of convulsions Excepting that his Illness was such as would have resulted from some powerful drug noth ing can be learned- A few minutes after midnight an at tempt to liberate Doyle failed on ac count of the prisoners illness At that hour guards found a 20foot lad der in position at a window in Boylos cell The supposition is that tho men who were to free Boyle climbed this ladder and then found his coil

when the organization ot tho Burley Society was effected They fear that the overproduction of this year will probably destroy the good effects accomplished by so bitter a fight and so much privation on the part of the members ot the society At the present there seems little prospect ot a pool being effected this year Not only on account of Indications that tho territory of production will bo very

necessity and yet in tho annual statistical publication of the department of commerce and Jabor Commerce and Navigation of the United States the student will look In vain for the word rubber and not until ho examines the word or the phrase Indlarubber India rubber or Indiarubber will he bo able to see how vast and Important Is the sub- Ject before him This conservatism if the term may be hero appliedIs traceable throughout all the literature of all the libraries of the English speaking world The aboriginal native word describing the substance first discovered by the early Europeans was cahuchu probably pronounced but surely corrupted Into caoutchouc This latter word has spread into the lan guages of Europe In French it is the same word In German the only modi fication is to substitute a k for the c and in Russian nearly the same change takes place To be sure the Spanish uses frequently the word goma equiv alent to our gum and this Is made more specific by adding the adjective elastica and the Portuguese has the word borracha but caucho Is com mercially well understood as might bo supposed from the first association with the source of supply Rubber or India rubber however is undoubtedly the term which will continue to be em ployed in English to distinguish this Indispensable product of the tropics Caoutchouc directly explains the descent of the gum and its adoption Into arts but India rubber embraces not only this history but conceals one of the romances of tho industries Travelers and It Is said Columbus himself was one of them noticed that the Indian Inhabitants of America thought then to be an unkonwn por tion of the Indies played ball with a curious substance grown in the primi tlvo forests and prepared according to native ways This substance was also made into shoes It formed a protective coating for garments and from it were made bottles which could be squeezed together so as to eject tho liquid contents This substance was called caucho in some parts of Amer ica and the gatherers were caucheros In other parts the gatherers were called because of tho shape of the bottles and tho uses to which tho Portuguese saw them put serlngciros sjringemen From this origin tho India prefix of tho word Is derived At first the gum goma elastica according to tho Span ish was merely a curiosity It was Imported into Europe and studied chemically with great Interest It was mado Into tubes and put to prac tical use in the laboratory But In 1770 the English chemist Priestley recom mended tho use of the gum for effacing tho marks of the lead

balked the Inventors in many directions In which they hat hoped it might bo applied Experl ments wero constantly being made oven tho incorporation of sulphur had been tried but It was not until 183J that Nelson Goodyear in the TJtiltcd States hit upon a practical method ol combining rubber with sulphur so alto retain all Its good unique proper tics while losing those that had made it hitherto

qualities It loses thli distensibility at certain degrees ol heat and cold It softens under heat and has a great tendency to stick to Itself or to other masses of rubloi with which It Is brought in contact Now these three qualities of rubber as refined after entering tho market from the tropical forests are overcraoe when It is mixed with sulphur that Is vulcanized It can then bo molded Into various shapes and still remain distensible The degrees ot tempera ture between which it retains these good qualities are very much wider apart so that climatic changes are less felt by the manufactured product and consequently rubber articles of an Infinitely more varied typo can bo turned out from the factories Vul canized rubber is therefore tho sub stance really implied ordinarily by

of the champion of tho proposition to tax Incomes tale the position that It will require tinto work out a satisfactory plan to reach corporations Added to all these complications Is the fact that estimates of possible rev enues from a tax on Incomes differ to such an extent that the whole Idea Is placed by many in tho realm of expo rl merit Many members of congress believe with President Taft that the inconu tax amendment should not be added unless It can be shown that it is needed to produce revenue Members of the finance committee declare that tho Payne bill as amend cd by the committee will yield sum cleat revenues for the operating ex penses of the government- If tho truth of this statement is established it will turn a number of votes away from the income tax amendment unless the

too lato to prevent the spread of tho doctrine which ho preached and which had run like piulrlo fire among Urn men of his nation There were all sorts of stories circulated ii concerningCapt the death of tho great Sioux chief pists In tho cast who never had seen an tepee instated that Sitting Hull was murdered that tho blood of tho savage was upon tho of tho nation It was left to Col Edward G

the feelings and tho superstitions of his warriors that they camo to believe that by wear- Ing certain garments which wero called ghost shirts their bodies would bo safe from the bullets of tho soldiers When Gen Mlles learned ot tho teachings ot Bitting Bull and of their rapid spread tho chiefs arrest was ordered Accordingly Indian police led by Lieut Dull Head and Scrgt Shave Head wero dispatched from Fort Yates to arrest tho chief at his log hut miles away Capt Fechet ot tho Eighth cavalry was ordered with hits com mand consisting of two troops and It memory servos two light field pieces to make a night SittingJmen r vous at 430 a m on ono of tho coldest mornings ot a Dakota December day Thero was no sign of tho Indian police nor yet of tho scout which Dull Head was to send in advance to inform tho cavalry ofllccr of his coming Fechets soldier instinct told him at once that thero must be trouble Ills men had had tho hardest kind of a night ride but they woro will ing and ho pushed forward rapidly After ho had wade several miles ho was met by a scout who Vas riding like mad Tho runner told Fcchct that all the Indian police who had gone to arrest Sitting Dull hind been killed by tho ghost dancers and that thero were thousands upon thousands of thorn fully armed and in their war paint ready for battle Fochot looked over his small command and mnt ahead at full gallop his only thought being to save such of the policemen as might bo alive and giving no heed to tho other thought that ahead of him might bo overwhelming numbers ot thin savages and tho fate of Custer It was a terrible ride from that time on When tho morning was a little advanced tho mon of the command heard firing which seemed to come from different points On they went un til they camo to tho brow of tho hill Below 1i a distance houso of Bull and In of It some of yards was a horde dancers en In emptying Into tho from a feeble fire Fechet had his Hotchklss thrown Into action and ho dropped n shell In front of tho ghost dancers and then tho command charged down tho bill Tho shoji had Its frightening effect on the savages who held aloof though still pouring In their fire which was answered by tho soldiers as Fechet himself took a rapid course to the log houso with his life In his hands every step of the way Insldo the hut wero found three of tho Indian policemen dead find three mortally wounded The wounded resolved on exacting a price for their coming death woro still using their rifles against tho besieging too Tho soldiers finally drove tho savages to flight Tho few that were left living of the little force of Indian police told this story Lieut Bull Head had arrested Sitting Bull and had led tho chief from his cabin only to bo confronted by hundreds of crazed savages Catch tho

With tho Rosebud Standing Rock and Pine Rldgo Sioux who went on the warpath in December 1890 wero a few stalwart warriors of tho trlbo of the Northern Cheyenne That tho Choy enncs braves were so limited in number was due to tho fact that 12 years before tho nation exiled and longing for Its old home had met with prac tical annihilation In tho attempt to regain It The Northern Cheyenncs had been sent to a reservation In tho Indian territory following ono of tho uprisings against tho whites Their hearts they left behind them In their old home and tho warriors yearned to return Lato In the fall of tho year 1878 the Cheyenne braves taking advantage ot tho temporary ab senco of their soldier guardians gathered together their women and their children and dashed northward in tho direction ot tho land where their fathers had lived from tho time back of tho beginning of tradition They had been told by tho Indian agents and by the soldiers who acted under orders that they never could tako tho trail back to tho north but they paid no heed to what was told them but gathering their possessions they set out The Cheyennes love of home natural and sym pathycompelling to everyone except to

hills that chain tho reservation The Cheyenncs had taken refuge near tho summit in a natural hollow The sides of the hills rose sheer and slippery to tho lurking placo of the savages It was n place admirably adapted for defenso A few men could hold It against a regiment Capt Vessels In command of tho cavalry saw that tho attempt to tape the hilltop by assault would bo to sacrifice tho lives of half of his men Ho threw a cordon around tho hill knowing that tho warriors could not escape and trusting that In a tow hours hunger would force them to sur render Meantime the Cheyennes were active They picked off many u trooper and at noon on tho day following tbo night of their flight a ball struck Capt Wcssels In the head The wound was not serious but Its effect was to make captain and mon eager for a charge Capt Wessels went to the trent ot his troops and prepared to lead them up the slippery hillside in tho taco of tho fire of the best Indian marksmen on the great plainsAll things wero prepared for the charge when to the amazement of tho troopers the whole band of Cheyenne warriors naked to tho waist and yelling like devils came dashing down the hill sldo straight at tho body of cavalry The Indians had thrown away their rifles and were armed only with knives They wore going to their death and they knew it hut death was bettor than a return to tho reservation which they hated Weasels and his troopers of the Third cavalry tried to spare tho Cheyennes but tho warriors would have death at any cost With their knives they plunged into a hand to hand conflict with tho troopers and before they were slain they exacted a price for their dying When the time camo for the burial of the Inv dians Tea Kettle a chief was found to bo alive but unconscious Tea Kettle was carried back to tho fort and thero mado comfortable- A squaw sought the wounded warriors couch and handed him a pair of scissors which ho instant ly plunged Into his heart Ho spurned life In tho
