Sage, a well-known rancher, living a few miles below Sand Point, Idaho, was Bhot and instantly killed while out hunting. An old acquaint ance, named John Snyder, who went out with him hunting, and who became eparated from him for a short time, seeing what he supposed to be a deer moving among the trees, fired at it, and upon reaching the spot was horrified to find that he had shot his friend dead. Rev. Myron V. Reed, pastor of one of Denver's leading churches, during his discourse Sunday created, somewhat of a sensation while discussing the kill ing of the Uto Indians by deputy game wardens in Colorado recently, by de claring that he intended to see that Warden Wilcox and his deputies are tried for murder. He also denounced the preuohers who have remained silent in the matter. Fifty-two families have arrived in North Yakima, Wash., from Polk county, Miunestota, to make new homes. Muny have already selected lands along the Yakima valley canal, west of the city, and otherB wi,ll locate in the vicinity of the Moxee artesian wells.

The state supreme court of Montana has sustained the constitutionality of the inheritance law passed by the last legislature. ' The law imposes a tax of 6 per cent on bequests to any benefici ary, not a relative, where the estate amounts to over $100. The tax on es tates directly inhorited.where the value of the estate is over (7,500, Is 1 per cent. It is estimated that the decision will yield the state $40,000 from es tates already in process of settlement. The Wyoming supreme court has de cided that foreign-horn citizens must be required to read the constitution in the English language in order to voto. One hundred and fifteen Finns, who voted the Republican ticket at the re cent election in that state, could not read the constitution in English, but their votes were accepted, as they could read it in their own language. The decision will put the Democratic can didate in oflloe, and settles an import ant constitutional question.

Gordon Highlanders Great Charge at Dargai Ridge. London, Nov. 17. The newspapers of this city have received graphic details by mail of the recapture of Dargai ridge by the Gordon Highlanders, on October 20, during which the regiment exhibit ed remarkable dash and courage. On Wednesday, October 20, General Biggs sent the second division to dislodge the tribesmen from the Dargai ridge. The position was a very strong one, the enemy occupying the summit of a pre cipitous hill. The top of the hill could not be reached except by a single path along which the attacking force, first consisting of a Ghoorka regiment, the Derbyshire regiment, and the Dorset shire regiment, were obliged to climb in Indian file, while three batteries shelled the breastworks of the hillmen. Dargai ridge, from the direction of the assault, presents a frontage of about a mile, the left end of which is sheer rocK for 200 yards. In spite of the difficulty of the ascent, tlrs movements of the British troops were fairly well covered, except in the case of a low dip, or small valley, from 100 to 150 yards wide about half way from the summit of the cliff. As the Ghoorkas, supported by the Derbyshires and Dorsetshires reached this fire zone, tho tops of the cliffs burst out into flame, for 1,000 tribes men had reserved their fire until that moment. Though decimated, the Ghoorkas struggled across the dip and reached the shelter of a few rocks, where they lay down under cover of the oliffs. But the others could not follow, and the enemy, with true mili tary instinct, reserved their fire. Though the remainder of the Ghoorkas, the Derbyshires and the Dorsetshires appeared on the fringe of the dip, yet to step into the fire zone was to court death. But the Dorsetshires again tried to advance to the support of the Ghoorkas, and 13 men struggled into the open space, only to drop before the far side had even been reached. Then, reluctantly, the senior officer signalled down to the main body of the British that the passage could not be made. At this juncture General KempBter ordered the Gordon Highlanders to the front.. The time Lad arrived for des perate action, for it wus then 4 o'clock iu the afternoon, and the dead and wounded were lying thick on every side. But the Gordon Highlanders had yet to be reckoned with. Rapidly forming his men and after his now historic speech "Men of the Gordon High landers, our general says that that posi tion must be taken at all costs. The Gordon Highlanders will take it" r Colonel Matthias, commander of the Highlanders, dashed out at the head of his gallant regiment, and in a moment they were across, carrying everyone with them in their onward rush, storm ing the ridge with a resolution that was resistless. When Colonel Matthias gave the order to advance, he and his officers led into tho open, the piper fol lowing, striking up "Cock of tho North," and with a shout the leading company was into the tire zone. A stream of lead swept over, through and past, the bullets churning up the dust which half hid the rushing bodies. Piper Findlates, blowing his loudest and best, was among the first to show the way across that deadly stretch of ground, and when, after traversing but a few yards he was laid low by a Bhot through both legs, he managed to prop himself and continued, with unabated energy, to play "Cock of the North," animating his comrades by the familiar, stirring music of his pipes. But the fire of the enemy was most deadly, the lending line men melting away, and it Beemed that the Gordon Highlanders would bo annihilated. More men, however, sprang into the passage und the leaders struggled across the center. Then, with a second cheer, the troops streamed across and the enemy, seeing that the barrior had been swept away, left their loopholes and fled precipi tately. Piper Findlates has been recommend ed for the Victorii; cross. Captain Robinson, of the Ghoorkas, also acted with the greatest gallantry. After leading his men across the tire zone to cover, and finding it insufficient, he re turned over the death trap alone, and was mortally wounded .while louding the second rush of Ghoorkas. NOT ONE ESCAPED. Bad Accident to a Russian Wedding Party. St. .Petersburg, Nov. 17. A terriblu accident has occurred near Bielostok, Russian Poland, resulting in the death of 80 persons. A wedding party wait returning from the church to the housti of the bride. All were in one wagon, a huge vehicle, drawn by eight horses. The road along which they drove crossed the railway track on the level, and the driver, either through careless ness or ignorance of the train schedule, pushed his swiftly moving horses upon the crossing, just as the express wui) coming up, The locomotive struck thu vehicle squarely, killing many mem-, bers of the party outright and maiming others so that they soon expired in frightful agony. Not a member of the party escaped. Rear Admiral Alexander Golden Rhiud, U. S. N., is dead at his home in Sew York oitv. Ho had been con fined to his bed for five weeks. Guerra la Safe. Washington, Nov. 17. The state de partment has finally re (used the appli cation of the government of Mexico for surrender under extradition proceedings of Jesus Guerra, who was one of Garza's lieutenants in his attempted revolution some years ago.

OPPOSITION IX WEST AND SOUTH Sufficient Number of Senators and Rep resentatives Fledged to In sure Its Abolition. Washington, Nov. 16. A strong effort will be made during the coming session of congress to secure the repeal of the oivil-servioe law. The support ers of this movement say that they have had promises from a sufficient number of senators and representatives to co-operate with them to insure its success, provided that all those mem bers who have heretofore favored the repeal are still of the same mind. Thomas R. MoKee, the journal clerk of the house of representatives, who has long been a bitter opponent of the existing law, and who has taken paint to ascertain the views of many of the members on the subject, said today that he was confident that if the oppor tunity ottered for a direct vote on the question of repeal, it would be carried by a large majority. "While it is not true," said he, "that I have been engaged in making a canvass of the house on this matter, it is true that I have talked with a great many members about it. I am convinced that for suoh a proposition my own state of Indiana would give its entire 13 votes, and I believe that Ohio and Illinois are just as much opposed to the law, As for the Western states I do not believe that they will furnish a single vote for the retention of the system, and in the South, both Demo crats and Republicans, with only a few isolated exceptions, would welcome its abolition. It is purely an Eastern in stitution, and it is entirely unrepubli can and un-American'. "It was originated by the college professors and educators of the East, especially of New England, the center of our educational system, for the ex press purpose of providing easy and comfortable berths for suoh of their graduates as were not physically able to stand the strain of the professional life for which they were trained,' or who found the professional ranks al ready well filled. The manufacture of college graduates went on so fast that it became necessary for the professors to find some outlet for the young men whom they were turning into the crowded fields of law, medioine and theology. So they turned to the gov ernment and, witli Dorman B. Eaton at their head, himself a life-long educator, induced it to require of applicants for government positions a preliminary ex amination, which, in many cases, they knew only men fresh from the oolloges could pass successfully. "It is a fact that President McKinley is now having as niuoh trouble in satis factorily filling the 300 or so places he has to give away as Grant did to dis pose of 200,000 places. There is al most as much eagerness and strife around the White House today over little $600 position as there used to U over the appointment of the minister to Germany. This shows that the desire for office it still as strong, and it is a natural desire. Representative Gros- venor made a strong point when he suid in his speech that the right of a man to participate in the affairs of the gov eminent in other ways than by merely casting his ballot was one that could not be constitutionally taken away from him. The heads of the govern ment department should have the right to make the appointments of their sub ordinates, and they should be held re sponsible for their actions. The presi dent would then have less of his time wasted on small matters of patronage, and after filling the larger and more important offices would then be able to devote himself to affairs of state. "That there is a strong sentiment in the country at large in favor of the re peal of the law I am sure, and I am satisfied, also confident, that the senti ment will find expression in congress during the coming session. The only recent vote that has been had upon the subject which gives any foundation upon which to base a calculation as to the result, was had towards tho close of the last session of the 54th congress. A proposition was made by Mr. Brosius, of Pennsylvania, to extend the opera tions of the civil service law in a cer tain particular. The question was as to the consideration of the bill, and it was defeated by a two-thirds majority. While this was not a direct vote it afforded an indication, if not of the strength of the repeal movement, at least of the weakness of the supporters of the civil service system. "It is my opinion that if nothing else is done, the civil service commis sion will be abolished with all of its cumbrous machinery. In its stead a departmental examination to determine the fitness of applicants for appoint ment in the government servioe will be substituted. This would be very proper, so far as the Washington de partments are concerned, but I would not require even this in offices outside of Washington, and I would limit all office-holding tenures to four years each. The civil servioe commission costs the people now $150,000 a year." A number of others have spoken in a similar strain recently. Confessed to Drowning His Child. Kansas City, Nov. 18. At Livesley, Mo., the trial of William Carr, who confessed to drowning his '8-year-old daughter in the Missouri river, was be gun today. No defense was attempted, the lawyer appointed by the court urg ing that the state hasten the prisoner's fate. Judge Broadus reserved his decision. ANNEXATION HER HOPE. Hawaii Anxious to Have the Tending Treaty Adopted. New York, Nov. 17. A dispatch to the World from Honolulu, dated Octo ber 28, says: ' Sanford B. Dole, presi dent of the provisional republic of Ha waii, and Chief Justice Judd are anxi ous to have the Hawaiian annexation treaty adopted as eoon as possible. Said President Dole to the correspondent: "The people will never again submit to a monarchy. In fact, there is no one sufficiently enjoying the confidence of the people of the islands to conduct the affairs of state under a monarchy." "Why do they not desire to continue as an independent republic?" he was asked. "As the islands are so far away from other countries, and as the Asiatio pop ulation is fast increasing in numbers, it is a serious question if they are left alone whether the republic could sur vive with the willing consent of the foreigners. Besides, if the United States has constantly to protect the islands under the government at pres ent, why should not the United States take them altogether? This is a great, country lor com merce. It is the natural land for American ownership. To all intents and purposes it is an American colony, anyway, so far as business, capital and industry is concerned, and it should be a part of the body politic of the United States." Chief Justice Judd said in an inter view: "During the reign of King Kalakaua there were two cabinets, so dissatisfied was tho state of the kingdom. The only branch of tho government that was not disturbed was the judiciary. The res toration of the monarchy is an impossi bility. There is no material to make a monarch of.( "Nor can we hope to maintain a re public independently.' We must look to the United States. We have come to the turning point, and we must either become Asiatic or .inglo Saxon; we are within the zone of American influence, and to assume re sponsibility for us, they ought to have something to say about how our affairs are directed." The news that has readied here from San Francisco that Samuel Parker, a prominent native leader, and heretofore a strong royalist, has declared in favor of annexation, has created quite a sen sation among the natives, who are still opposed to annexation. RELIEF FOR WHALERS. A Reindeer Train Will Oo Overland to Point Barrow- Washington, Nov. 17. Secretary Alger has requested the secretary of the interior to instruct Alaskan officials to gather about 800 head of reindeer from the government herds lor use of an ex pedition for the relief of the icebound whalers in the Arctic. It is expected that the Bear, which is now at Seattle, will be ready to sail in about 10 days, and within 20 days thereafter will reach some point on the northern sound, where a large party will bo engaged for the trip overland to Point Barrow. The herd of reindeer which will be killed for food, if needed, will be driven overland, and it is confidently expect ed that the herd will reach Point Bar row and the imprisoned whalers before the middle of February. The country through which the herd will be driven is said to abound with moss, upon which the herd will feed. It is said the scheme for the relief of the whalers is perfeotly feasibe and will be attended with little' danger. No apprehension is felt regarding the outcome of the enterprise. A Valuable Discovery. New York, Nov. 17. William A. Eddy, the kite experimenter of Bay onne, N. J., made an interesting ex periment Saturday night. He is satis fied that by means of observations taken at various altitudes, indications of approaching' thunder storms and other meteorological data can be ee cured. About 200 feet below his kites a thermometer was hung, and near it a collector of electric sparks. The re sults obtained Saturday night led Mr. Eddy to believe that the electric con dition of the air shown by the varying height of the collector when the first spark is drawn may reveal the approach of storms in even a cloudless sky. In particular he thinks it will prove ad vantageous in determining the approach of local storms. Father and Daughters Insane. San Francisco, Nov, 16. A pathetio icene wus enacted in Judge Carroll Cook's courtroom today, when John Durr and his three daughters Kate, Theresa and Sarah were adjudged in sane, and committed to the Ukiah asy lum. The family has been living for many years in a little flat at 172 Clin bin Park, renting the basement floor, on which money they have existed. Recently, they had been unable to col lect the rent, and were on the verge of starvation when their condition was discovered. The family was at one time very wealthy, the father being of the firm of Kennedy & Durr, who, in early days kept a largo dry goods store st Third and Howard streets. Mushrooms generally consist of 90 por cent water, but the remaining 10 per cent, is more nutritious than bread. Holly Springs, Miss., Nov. 16. At Ashland, 20 miles west of here, W. H. Harrison, editor of the Ashland Regis ter was stabbed to death last evening by J. L. McDonald. The men had some words aobut a notice iu the paper of an approaching lecture, McDonald oharging that if Harrison had been a Methodist instead of a Baptist, the no tice would have been more extended. Harrison replied through his paper in a way to incense McDonald, and the tragedy resulted. RESPITE FOR DURRANT Condemned Murderer Given Another Lease of Life. LAW ALLOWS 60 DAYS OP GRACE Supreme Court of California Hears Petition and Grants a Stay of Execution. Bll San Francisco, Nov. 15. William Henry Theodore Durrant will not be hanged at San Quentin tomorrow morn ing, after all, the supreme court of this state having granted him another respite at the eleventh hour. Up to 4 o'clock this afternoon, when the news was flashed over the wires from Sacramento that the oourt now in session there had granted a writ of probable cause, and had instructed Warden Hale not to carry out the exe uution of Durrant until further orders, there was apparently no further hope for the condemned murderer of Blanche Lamont, as his attorneys, Messrs. Diok- inson and Boardman, had made a futile effort to secure another writ of habeas oorpus in the United States circuit court, and had not even been granted permission to appeal from that decision to the supreme court of the United States. Meanwhile, however, Attorney Deu prey hastened to Sacramento and ap plied to the state supreme court for a writ of probable cause for the purpose of staying the proceedings against his olient, upon the prounds that no official knowledge of the action of the supreme oourt of the United States in the mat ter of Durrant's appeal from the decis ion ot the federal court had yet been received; that the superior court had acted too hastily in sentencing Durrant to be hanged tomorrow, as the law re quired that he be given at least 60 days of grace, and, consequently, that the pendency of another appeal in the supreme court affecting the condemned man is of itself sufficient cause of a stay of execution. The matter was partially argued in chambers, and later argued before the full court and taken under advisement. Shortly afterward the court announced its decision, granting the writ applied for, in which all the justioes concurred. Shortly before midnight, Attorney Eugene Deuprey, of counsel for Durrant, arrived from Sacramento, having crossed the bay in a steam launch. The pur pose of this trip was to make personal service on Warden Hale of a certified copy of the order of probable cause issued by the supreme court at Sacra mento. The precaution was taken that there might be no pretext for executing Durrant tomorrow. The warden was asleep, and was deaf to all efforts to arouse him. Captain Edgar accepted the service and agreed to deliver the documents to his superior in the morn ing. Warden Hale had stated in the evening that he was in doubt as to what course to pursiie. He said that, in any event, he would delay the exe cution until the latest legal limit of time noon tomorrow but that he had been advised that he should proceed to hang the prisoner, as he had received no personal service of the stay of execu tion. However, he finally decided to act on the following dispatch, received from Prison Director Devlin, of Sacra mento: "Supreme court made an order and has stayed all proceedings until furthei orders of the court. Accordingly you will postpone the execution." After reading this, Warden Hale said he would retire, and there would be no hanging in the morning. No further developments are expected tonight. ON THE HOOTALINQUA. A Rich Strike Has Been Reported Near the Passes. Skaguay, Alaska, (per steamer Far sllon to Seattle), Nov. 15. Rich gold discoveries are reported on the Clin tock river and branches of Hootalin qua, some running as high as $40 a day to the man. There has been quite a rush to the new fields, which will be prospected during the winter. The Canadian government has re called a number of customs officials who have been stationed ,. 8 , bouse, between Lakes Bennett and Tagish, and the British Columbia au thorities have also reduced the num ber of provincial police who have been stationed at Lake Bennett and Tagish house, since the great rush to the Klon dike country began last July. Deputy Collector of Customs Fred W. Davey, who has just returned from Tagish, said to a press correspondent that duties had been collected during the season on 400 outfits. Each outfit represented from four to seven men. The duty collected on each outfit aver aged $60, and the total amount collect ed aggregated $25,000. Duties were levied upon everything belonging or in any way apertaining to an outfit, even the clothes that a man wore were not exempted. Several cases of attempted smuggling were detected, the goods be ing confiscated in most instance. Travel down the lakes has practical ly ceased, and Mr. Davey says that hundreds of people will be caught in the ice and foroed to go into winter quarters wherever they may happen to be when the ice surrounds them. Philadelphia Naturalisation Frauds. Philadelphia, Nov. 15. United States District Attorney Breck has sent to Washington for assistance in running down the naturalization frauds which were recently unearthed in this city. Mr. Breck has also notified Secretary Gage that the frauds have assumed gi gantic proportions. While Attorney General McKenna may not personally take part in the trials, some member of his official staff will be here when the defendants appear in court- THE CRIME AVENGED. Murderers of the Sploer Family Strung Up by a Mob. Bismarck, N. D.f Nov. 16. Alex Coudol, an Indian half-breed, and Paul Holytraok and Philip Ireland, full blood Indians, the first of whom was sentenoed to death for the murder of six members of the Spicer family last February, and had just been granted a new trial by the supreme court, and the latter two self-confesBed accessories in the murder, were taken from the county jail in Wood county last night and lynched by a mob. The lynching had apparently been cooly planned, and was carried out without a break. Sudden and swift retribution was meted out. Williams port, where the hanging took place, is about 40 miles from this city, and off the railroad. The news of the lynch ing was received here this afternoon. The men had been in the custody of Deputy Sheriff Kelly. They were taken from him by the mob and hanged to a beef windlass several yards from the jail. Their bodies were left hang ing during the entire day, the coroner not having arrived, and no one else .olunteering to out them down. About 40 men were concerned in the lynching. They rode into Williams port on horseback late at night, and tethered their horses a short distance from the city, that they might secure them again as speedily as necessary after the deed was done. The jail is a substantial stone structure, and was in charge of Deputy Sheriff Thomas Kelly. Since the confinement of the prisoners! there, so great has been the fear that they might escape in some way, that one man had watched the prisoners alL night. Last night Kelly was on watoh. There was a meeting 'Of the lodge of Woodmen in a building near the jail, ahd as Kelly was a member, he expect ed to meet some of the members of the lodge after the meeting had adjourned. To while away the time during the night hours,' he was playing solitaire in front of the cells in which the mur derers were confined. About 2 o'clock there was a rap on the outer door of the jail, and Kelly rose quickly and turned the key In the lock, thinking: that the persons he expected to meet had arrived. No sooner had he opened the door ! than the mob crowded into the corri dors. All of them were masked, and the leaders carried ropes. Kelly at once realized what the mob had come for. The lynchers were quiet but de termined. The lead?r presented a re volver at the hoad of the deputy sheriff and told him they wanted his prisoners, and demanded Unit he opeu their cells. Kelly demurred, but saw that resist ance was useless, and unlocked the door. Two of the prisoners were con fined together, and the other in a separ ate cell. They had been aroused from, sleep by the entrance of the mob, and sat up, half awake and trembling in terror. Holytrack and Ireland were , pulled from their beds, ropes were fast ened about their necks, and they were dragged out on the ground, after being told to prepare for death. , The men were then dragged to a huge beef windlass, which had been erected 1 to suspend carcasses of slaughtered j beeves, and were strung up on a cross beam. Cudol was the first man to be I hanged. It is reported that he was. asked before be was hanged whether I Blackhawk and Defender had also been concerned in the murder for which he 1 was about to be hanged. He answered in the affirmative. The rope, which had been fastened about his neck, was j then thrown over a crossbeam, and he was suspended in midair. Holytrack and Ireland were treated in a like man ner and the mob then quietly dispersed. IN A SNAKE'S COILS. Museum Watchman Severely Injured by an Anaconda Philadelphia, Nov. 16. A huge an aconda on exhibition here today severe ly injured Samuel Masher, the museum watchman, and crushed to death a valuable trick pony. The pony was tied to a feed box alongside the ana conda's cage. Masher saw the reptile had worked one of the boards of its cage loose and had stretched out a short dis tance. He pushed the board to, believ ing the anaconda would pull within its oaaa attain Tnatoail If U'rlivt-lafl mit ! and wrapped itself several times about Masher. The latter screamed for help, and the pony, frightened by the big reptile, began jumping about. This saved MaBher's life, for the reptile un wound himself from him and com pletely encircled the pony. Masher fell to the floor unconscious. When a number of employes reached the scene, the snake began to unwind itself, and appeared to be getting ready for the fight. The men kept aloof until a lasso was obtained and the snake finally made secure. Several of Masher's ribs were broken, and he was taken to a hospital. Marching on Havana. Key West, Fla. Nov., 15.
