The announcement of the par

this exercise ofroyal clemency than
any one else, as she has alwavs
doubted the guilt of the convicted
woman. . '
Sensational litigation is apt to
follow the liberation of 'Mrs My

pardon will bo used by her ": Wash
ington attorney to secure a post
ponement to the trial of the great
law suit bearing on the prisoner's
property interests in ;' Kentucky,
Virginia and West Virginia.
The property in dispute is valued
at several millions. Relatives of
the family of Mrs May brick have
made determined efforts to obtain
possession of this wealth1 on the
ground that the woman, being a
life convict, could not hold property
in her own right. '"; The suiewill be
pressed by the defence as soon as

Washington, March: 25. An al
leged plot to kidnap three members
of the cabinet of the forthcoming
Presidential tour of the West was
made public today.' 1
The men against whom the plot is
supposed to have be en batched are
nO less personages than Secretary of
War Koot, Attornev-General Knox
and Secretary of- the Treasury
Shaw.' ' '.. -'
The announcement created no
little sensation in government ' cir
cles, for. while it is. generally dis
credited, it 13 known that there are
men in the West who are bold
enough to attempt almost any pro
ject that promises large returns.
1 be warning came ..from . John
Fremont, the .aged negro orator,
who gave his information to Con
gressman Tawney today. The col-,
ored man stated that a plot was on
foot to kidnap the three : officials
while they were with the President
in Montana. , ,.' . ,,. ... ..
The object of .the kidnappers,
said Fremont was to secure 8 heavy
ransom. Tawney considered the
information of sufiicent importance
to inform Secretary Shaw. It is
learned that steps will at once
be taken to investigate the alleged
plot and to discover the plotter?,
if they exist outside the negro's

Dublin, March 25. All Ireland
is wild with delight and excitement
over the labd bill, which is up to
day in Jthe House of Commons. -
Not for half a century has the
country witnessed such a display
of exuberant good feeling.
The introduction of the land bill.
with Us home rule features, is con
sidered the most momentous event
in the history of Ireland since the
formation of the Union- ,
The bill is confidently expected
to pas. The attitude of the anti
Irish population of England has
undergone a radical change in the
past few years and the members of
the present house of Commons are .

New York, March 25. Hon.
.Franklin K, Lane, recently, a can
didate for governor of California,
and the city attorney of ,San, Fran
cisco," is in New York. His mission
in coming East is to secure . from
the department of the interior tfye
right to use two reservoir sites on
the Yosemite National Park as a
sourGe of water supply,' for San
Fracisco. Applications were made
for these sites two years ago by the
mayor, but were rejected. The city
now renews the application in i's
own name. If they are granted the
water supply will be owned by the
municipality. , '. :. ,
Plans and estimates have already
been made which call for an expen
diture iof $40,000,000. In. renerl
outline, the scheme is to hold back
in giant reservoirs the waste flood
waters of the Tuolumne River, and
by canals and pipes carry the water
across the San Joaquin Valley and .
nnder San. Francisco Bay, a dist
ance of 140 miles. ; -"
The new charter of San Francis
co xakes it mandatory that - the
question of municipal ownership of
tne water supply shall be, submit
