When a cot was brought into the Court
house for the use of the Judge, who is
not in good health, a crowd of moun
taineers asked what it was Intended for.
"For Judge Cantrill." was the reply.
"Take it In," said one of the moun
taineers. "Cantrill will need that cot

the first witness today. Graham "Vree
land then described "'the crowd from the
mountains," and told of a meeting in the
Agricultural building, at which it was
proposed that "'they go to the Capital
Hotel and get Goebel."
H. H. "Waiklns. Captain of the military

He aleo said he heard Henry Youtsey
Bay: "'Goebel Is going to be killed, and
this man (pointing to Dick Coombs) will
do the work. I've given him $100, and 25
others have given him the same amount."
On cross-examination Hopkins said he
made -a statement about what he knew to
Arthur Goebel in Covington last May. He
admitted that he had been arrested for

"Nashville Womnn Charged "With
Passing: Forged Bank Xotcs.
NASHVILLE, Tenn., Oct 16. The
woman. Annie Rogers, alias Maude Will
lams, under arrest here charged with at
tempting to pass forged bank notes, sup
posed to liave been stolen by the gang
that robbed the Great Northern Express,
near Wagner, Mont, last July, was ar
raigned in a Magistrate's court today.
Her preliminary trial was set for 10 o'clock
tomorrow morning. The prisoner con
tinues to decline to answer questions re
garding herself, and If she has told the
police anything they have not made It
public An especial effort was made dur
ing the day to locate the lodging place of
the woman. There, It was hoped, her
trunk would be found, but after running
down half a dozen clews the officers found
themselves In about the same shape as
when they started the work in the morn
ing. The officers received information
during the day that the woman had been
at Shreveport, La., and had evidently
come on to Nashville through Memphis.
This led them to believe some of the men
implicated In the robbery might be in the
Capture of the Gang Delayed.
ST. PAUL, Oct 16. The capture of the
bandits who held up the Great Northern
overland express at Wagner, Mont, July
6, securing $43,000 in bank notes, has been
seriously delayed by the announcement of
the capture at Nashville of Annie Rogers,
alias Maude Williams, supposed to be con
nected with the gang. Before her ar
rest the Plnkerton agency and police offi
cers had laid plans which seemed to as
sure a speedy capture of the robbers.
President and General Manager Elliott,
of the express company, said today that
no further news had been received at
headquarters and that he did not look
for the immediate arrest of the gang.
"This woman, according to my advices,"
Mr. Elliott said, "was in communication
with one of the robbers at New Orleans.
When that man read the account of her
capture in today's papers he probably dis
appeared at once. If her arrest had not
been made publlc.we would probably have
secured him and peThaps the rest of the
men. The capture will probably come
sooner or later, but it has been delayed."
Mr. Elliott says that the express com
pany does not know how the bandits es
caped from the mountains south of Wag
ner while pursued, nor what their move
ments since have been. The identification
made at the time, he said, has been sub
stantiated. Trainmen on the overland
have Identified photographs of the sus
pected men as pictures of the robbers.

The accompanying illustration is a reproduction from life of the first work of
art from the brush of the now world-famous cartoonist, Homer Davenport. It
was when Davenport was growing up with the town of Sllverton that his younger
brother, Clyde, became worried about his future. "You are going to make your
mark in the world some day. Homer," said the little fellow, "but you ought to
begin now. I am sure you would make a wonderful painter of animals if you
only tried, but you never can do anything unless you try, you know. Now, sup
posing we go down to the paint shop on the cornet, get the artist's materials we
need, and go to -work."
So the two boya proceeded to the paint shop, after having first secured In a
dry goods store a board around which a bolt of calico had been wound, to serve
as a canvas. The painting, was begun, and for a time Homer wrought silently
and earnestly. But presently he looked up. "It doesn't look right, Clyde," he
said. "The horse has got a. spavin on his off hind leg. It oughtn't to be there."
He threw down his brush, discouraged. Clyde laid his hand consolingly on his
shoulder. "Never mind," he said, "it's all right. We've been in too much of a
hurry. Great painters never do a masterpiece at a sitting: wo must finish it
another day." And on another day the picture was finished, and nailed proudly
agreed to recommend to the court a bond
of $500 if Crowe voluntarily gives himself

ver. He said:
"Some may be disposed to stamp the
word failure upon the political career of
our distinguished guest, but he has set
an example that must weigh heavily on
the side of "civic virtue. He has faced
without flinching a fire as hot and hell
ish asever came from the canno's mouth,
and he has won a victory greater and
more glorious than ever crowned the life
of one who fawned at the feet of power
or bartered away his manhood to secure
'Mr. Bryan did not inject any politics
Into his speech, which was brief and di
rected largely to Mr. Towne. He said:
"Great Issues are at stake; great in
terests are Involved, even our civilization
itself, and through us the civilization of
the world. This Nation Is a world power;
It has not acquired its influence by war,
but for a century its ideas have been
permeating the world and every citizen
owes it. to his couitry, as well as to his
generation and posterity, to throw the
weight of his influence on the right side
of every public question."
Senator Towne was the last speaker, it
being long after midnight when he arose.
As he did so, hundreds of people sprang
to their feet and cheered vociferously.
Mr. Towne extended eloquent -thanks, and
spoke In a reminiscent vein.
"There is no rancc In my heart tonight
for any wn," ne said. "I feel a klaJof
universal frlerdship for all. Dur-n:? pas-t
political canfnalarns we all said tlungs that
we regret, no doubt; at leasts I did, tut
I go away cherishing nothing but good
will for all."

slipped out of his cheerful and helpful life, and whenever Homer has returned to
Sllverton he and his father have gone, hand in hand, to the barn to look at the
painting, and think oO the sadly missed brother and son that Us presence re
called. More than once Homer suggested that he be allowed to take it to New
York with him, but the thought of parting with it always moistened his fath

has been selected as chairman of the com
mittee on arrangements for the fifth an
nual convention of the National Livestock
Association, which will meet here the
first week lh December. There Is unusual
Interest In this meeting, for the reason
that the convention will take up some Im
portant questions which will be referred
to Congress. The stockmen. It is said,
will ask Congress to appoint a special
committee to investigate conditions upon
the public ranges, and report back a plan
for the future government of the ranges
in such a way that the conflicts between
sheep and cattle grazers may be averted.
Ranges are becoming so overcrowded that
the struggle for grass is resulting in al
most dally conflicts, in which bloodshed
Is becoming altogether too frequent. An
other Important question to be considered
Is a bill providing for Government inspec
tion, and the tagging of all woolen manu
factures, to show the percentage of "shod
dy" and cotton used in all alleged woolen
fabrics. These and other questions fully
as important are expected to draw to this

LABOR QUESTION IN HAWAII
Acting Governor Cooper Makes Rec
ommendations In His Report.
WASHINGTON, Oct. 16. Henry E.
Cooper, Territorial Secretary of Hawaii,
had a conference today with Secretary
Hitchcock, and submitted his annual re
port us Acting Governor of Hawaii. The
report makes a number of Important rec
ommendations. A feature Is Its treatment
of the labor question. Mr. Cooper re
ports that there is urgent need for labor
ers from outside the territory. He shows
that during the last fiscal year between
4000 and 5000 Japanese laborers left Hawaii,
while only about 500 such laborers en
tered the territory. Approximately the
same proportion of entries and departures
holds good with respect to Chinese and
other labor, making the bringing In of
laborers from outside necessary.
The report urges an Investigation into
the question of timber entries In Hawaii
and recommends the establishment of a
system of forestry preservation. Better
statistics regarding Imports and exports
and similar matters are urged. The grad
ual destruction of the fisheries Is pointed
out, and a recommendation made for

"I thank God for the good your medicines
have done me," writes Mr. James M. Sizcmorc,
of Mitchell, Lawrence Co.. Ind.. Bos 501. "I
was not well for two years. My throat was
always sore, head ached- and back, ached nearly
all the time. My weight was 155 pounds. X
was taken sick with typhoid fever, and when
the fever left me I had such a pain in my left
side I could not breathe without pain. I
thought I must die. My wife went to tha
drug store and procured a bottle of Dr. Pierce'st
Golden Medical Discovery and a vial of his
'Pleasant Pellets.' I discontinued the use of
rny doctor's medicine and began with the
Golden Medical Discovery and Pellets. I at
once began to feel better : "the pain soon left my
side and I could breathe with ease. In a weefc
or so I felt so good I could not stay In the room.
I began to walk about the streets ; I felt bettcS

Now I weigh 184 pounds and feel better than
ever in my life.1
