Salt Lake, Jan. 10, The remark
able provisions of a will made 25
years ago have been brought to
light through a letter to Coutty
Clerk Ja ires from Mrs. Robert A.
Irving, of 501 WeBt 12 4th street,
New Yoik, asking for information
regarding trie disposition made of
the estate of her grandfather, Dr.
Charles Frederick Winelow, an ec
centric but brilliant naturalist, who
died in this city in 1877, leaving a
valuable estate. This consisted
mainly of personal property, includ
ing a large and valuable collection
of shell, fossils, minerals, antiqui
ties and rare books, three volumes
of tbe latter alone being valued at
An examination of the public re
cords fails to disclwe what became
of this property. The will is dated
May 3, 1876, and names Samuel
Woodward (now deceased) as tem
porary admioi'trat r. and Joseph
Sbippen and Charles W. Winslow,
of St. Louis, and William C. Peas",
of San Francis-co, as executors.
After making bequests to his
children, Dr. Winslow in his will
requests that after his death his
heart be cut out, embalmed, enclos-
d in a glass vessel and placed on
the coin a of his mother- on the isl
and of Nanturket. In a similar
vessel he requests that tbe ashes of
his cremated body be buried with
the body af his wife in a cemetery
near Cambridge, Mass.
As there had beeD but two previ
ous cremations in the United States
and none in Utah, considerable dif-
ficulty was found in carrying out
this request, it being necessary to
construct a temporary furnace in
the heart of the city at a cost of
$1500. Nearly every person in the
city gathered to witness the then
novel ceremony of cremation.

Genoa, Jan. 8rWhen it became
known that the Niasin and Kasaga
warships built here for tbe Arg n-

was great rejoicing ttrougbout the
town, and ciowds of people nocked
to tbe harbor to bil farewell to tbe
ships of whose strength and speed
they are justly proud.

the warships, too, because half of

numbering 300 men in each ship,
are about eoually divided between
Italian and English. One hundred
arid twenty English artillerymen
embarked on the ve.-sels laat night.
The commanders et the Nusin
and Kasaga have received 6ealed
orders which will be opened at sea.
At tbe last moment tbe departure
of the warships was delayed to a-
wait the receipt of money from the
Japanese legation at London, but it
is expected the vessels will sail ear

Ontario, Or., Jan. 12. Joe Man-
ahan . dropped dead on Sucker
Creek, Malheur county, Monday.
That fact of itself was enough to
startle that quiet commuity in
which "Joe" has resided for 18 years
as a iarmer and stockraiser, but
when friendly neighbors started to
prepare the body for burial the com
muuity was given a decided shock
when it was announced that "Jos"
Monahan was a woman.
. For 18 years the woman masquer
aded as a man, owned her own
farm and stock and performed all
the labor allotted t3 tbe average
husbandman, - For rears si e has
ridden after her cittle over moun
tains and plain, camping with men
under all conditions and in no in
stance was her sex questioned.
Time over and again "Joe" Mon
ahan has been summoned by the
sheriff to serve as a juror. Iu eve
ry case she responded promptly
and participated in prr parations ot
vdrdicts rendered, further than
that, she held the distinction of being
the only woman in the state of Or
egon who has exercised the right of
franchise acoorded only to the male
sex. Her masquerading was so
successful that she was registered
as a voter and cast her ballot at ev
The dead woman had collected

mystery surrounding her life pre
cludes any facts regarding any rel

pending an inves'igation.
Medford, Or.. Jan. 12. The city
election was held today and the out,
come was a decided victory for tha
citizens' ticket, which was in favor
of an open town by 75 majority.
X be real ngbt of the day was for '
councilmen of the different wards.
The question was whether the sa
loons should be closed on Sunday
or remain open as at present. Tha
citizens' ticket was in favor of keep
ing saloons open and tbe People's
ticket was to close them on Sunday.

Honolulu, Jan. 11. Rear-Ad
miral Evan's fleet, which sailed
from here on the last day of the old
year, is now speeding on to Guam
minus at least three score of Uncle
Sam's men. These men have suc
cumbed to the glittering bait held
out by Viceroy and Admiral Alex-
lefl of the Russian navy, and are
waiting here to accept service as
gunners against the Japanese when
war is declared, lbey are desert
ers, all ot them, but tbey are taxing
a seaman's chances of not being
caught and consoling themselves
with tbe thought that tbe penalty
of desertion is so much lighter in
times of peace than war. Now, if
any of them are taken, they will at
least eseaps with their lives.
Tbe fleet is on its way to Uuatn,
and consists of the battle- ships Or
egon, Wisconsin and Kentucky,
the cruisers Cincinnati, Kaleigb,
Albany and New Orleans and the
dispatch boat Iroquois. On reach
ing Guam, Admiral Evans will find
orders awaiting him there to pro
ceed to Subig.
Irrigon, Or., Jan. 12. Surround
ed on an island by a posse of 20
armed men, three Italians, who had
dared to robbed in open daylight
and then return to town for dinner,
were captured today. On their per- '
sons was evidence of many robber
ies, it not of other crimes.
Each Italian wore five separata
suits of clothes. One, Gniseppi
Rosa, had five drafts, amounting in .
all to $550. Ten watches, a quan
tity of jewelry, some of good value,
and a number of revolvers were
found npon them. Ech carried a
razor and stiletto in bis grim; cloth
ing of many layers.
About two o'clock thi morning
five men, including-the three sona
of sunny 7 Italy, were sidetracked
here while beating their way over
the railroad. Soon after .daylight

was Reginald Horbern, of Boise,
Idaho. He was met by the Ital
ians who had shared the same car
with him, and coolly robbed of $25
and a gold watch. Horbern return- .
ed to town and told his story. While
the posse was forming, the Italians
appeared to get dinner. Hearing
that they were being sought, they
made for the outskirts. The posee

talians' waded across an arm of the
Columbia River' to a small island.
Here, when thay saw that they
were surrounded by overwhelming
numbers, with no chance of ulti
mate escape, tbey surrendered.
Sullen and momentarily cowed,
the robbers were brought back to.
It is believed that they have com
mitted various crimes'all aloDg the
railroad, probably beating their way
westward and living upon the peo
ple they robbed.
A deputy sheriff is on bis way
from Arlington to take charge of
the Italians. Tbey have been pos
itively identified by Horbern bb his

Dsspite the early hour, 4:30 a,

Opinion, however, is that they will
