the hitherto u n a ceo m pin-bed feat.

Glenister announced on Suoday,
.when the police prevented his at
tempt to swim the rapids, that he
would accoooplish the feat within
sixty day, lie reached Lewiston laBt

watched for him to reappear; but
the water roared on and they gave

Fate interposed and saved the
dWing man's life. He passed
through the famous whirlpool, ac
cording to his story, but instead of
being carried arcuod and around
and finally, instead of making that
awful descent, into the maelstrom
from which nothing that is human
can arise, he was washed through
the outlet and then, with strong,
vigorous strokes, he swam on down
tthe river to the Devil's Hole.
His friend's dashed to tbe water's
brink and dragged the form from
the current. G'enister was uncon
scious, but it was found that life
was not altogether extinct and with
all speed he was carried ', back to
. Lewiston, where .the work of reviv

" There are many persons here to

the distinction remains firm in his
assertion's. ' ' ;

at him, tbe shot probably taking ef

lowed Miller. Three more shot9
were fired at him, but he escaped
in the darkness. .;
Murpny had a 40-caliore revo.v

the jail. He was very cunning and
tried to get hid band on it. W. O
Craig arrived at the jail shortly af
ter the arrest. He has followed the
convicts from Ruffoers,
Maxwell and Sharky. acted brave
ly, as bo:h convicts were heavilv
armed and caw the deputy sheriffs
just as tbey started to cross the
bridge. Their first impulse was to
turn back, but finally they decided
to take the chances. ;

kidnaping of a young wbite girl,
and tie killing of one of tbe posse
who tried to rescue her, are the
crimes charged against a party, of
eight negroes tonight, fortified op
Bruce d Island, sixteen miles west
of here. I The negroes are said to be
well armed. ;
A few days ago two farmers liv
ing n ar Wilson's Rock, landed on
Bruce's island in search of plums,
and accidentally ran into a camp
in which there were two negro men
and a white girl about 12 years old.
Tbey made some inquiries about
the girl, and the negroes said she
was the daughter of a white : man
who was traveling with them, and
who had gone to Fort Smith for
provisions. Tbe negroes would not
let the girl take part in tbe conver
satioti, and this aroused suspicion
A watch was kept on tne negroes
for two days, but nb white man ap
Monday afternoon a part; of far
mers decided to investigate the
cae, and as they approached the
island were fired upon by the. ne
groes and one of the party, Roland
by name, was killed. A sharp fight
was kept up for some time, during
whi -b the girl escaped from the negro-
and ran to the white men.
She was so excited that she
couht not give any intelligent ac
count of herself. She said, howev
er, tiat ber father was not travel
ing with tbe negroes, but that she
had been stolen ' form her home
near Fort Gibson, I. T. She has
been taken to Muldrew. ;

only Todd and the engineer of the
