When -"DoO' tor Hannieh, leader 01 the eun worshippers' cult, is placed on trial on May 26, charged with "piactic- me medicine without a license," he will have to face serious charges of torturing bis patients by using a machine carrying 20 needles attach ed to a spring. lhese are sunk deep into the flesh, and inysteriouB oil is rubbed into the wound. This is said to cause great pain and re sult in horrible blisters and running sores-: , tteorge liilbert said ma wile was thus treated by two of Hannish'a women helpers, and that she was subjected to the ordeal even after she was 0:1 the verge 01 death irom starvation and pain; that even the day upon which his wife died these two women came to the house and would have "treated" her but he drove them away. Dr.. Mary McKibbon -Harper says she was called to attend Mies Reuase when she was taken to the hospital just prior to being ad i Ode ed insane and taken to Elgin, where she is now confined. Dr. McKib ben-Harper says she found Miss Keusse s back in a inghtlol condi tion, caused evidentlo by the needle treatment. Her back was literally covered with soree, and she groaned and wept con tin Dally from the pain From members ot the cult it was learned that followers afflicted with any ailment were tortured. "Yes, we plunge needles into the flesh and then rub oil in the wounds," admitted Dr. J. H. Lowe, a dentist. . "The needles go far into the flesh, and' then' the' oil ' causes blietsrs and sores to form. This draws poison out of the syatem and cures tne patient. Mrs Isaac Henry strong, a high priestess of the sun worshippers not only admitted, but boasted that the sick and afflicted were punished with needles and burning oil. "It is one way to subjugate the . flesh and to drive out the devil," she said : "There are sot enough pores in the skin to let in all the sunshine that the system needs, and bo the needles are used for this reason." While Hannish denies that he tortures his followers in . order to teach them what he terms "flesh subjugation." he alludes throughout all his literature to the ordeal, and those who stand it , without crying out in pain are lauded for their "master over the body. . iSt. Louis, Mo., May 17.

Niuchwang is now guarded by 300 Chinese police. Everything is quiet and orderly. . -'f he Japanese force at Kaichau is reported to be at 2o,ooo. This army is thoroughly equipped and has uot been forced forward enough to render it unfit for its best fight ing. The advices state that re markable system now- prevailes with the Japanese, who conduct themselves as would campaigners of years experience. Japanese warships appeared off Kai chau, 20 miles southwest of here to day and shelled the place while troops were landed. Their strength is not known.

His remarks were in terpreted by General Wong, a Yale graduate. 1 he prince said: "From the time I landed at San Francieco during my entire visit to j our country I have been most sur prised to find that every man ' and woman in America is educated. This I believe is the basis of the success of the American people." General Wong also spoke, mak ing a plea for the easy admission to the United States of Chinese etu deute. He said: "One-fourth of the Chinese stu dents who were in this country when I was in college at Yale have since fallen in battle, shot in front. To get shot in front is something thev learned in America." ; county, terrorizing the settlers and scattering the mange with their herds of woree than useless ponies. Great uneasiness exists here and fears are expressed that tbe degra dations of the savages mav result in seriouB hostilities. Already much damage to the stock interests has been -done, and if something - is . not done to check the incursion of the Indians, the losses to ranchmen will mount into the thousands by reason of the spreading of disease ' among the vast herds of cattle and horses which are on the Grant county range. . . Inspector George Irvin, of Mon ument, inspected a number of In dian ponies when they first reached the county and fonnd ten of them badly diseased. He wired the state veterinary for instructions. That Officer being sick, Secretary of state Dunbar wired Irvin to kill the die eased animals, providing it could be done at county expense. There are about 5U0 Cay uses on the lowor John Day river, and al though the Indians are expected to resist, Inspector Irvin says he will carry out his instructions. It is believed by ranchmen here that a serious clash will occur immediate ly following any attempt to kill the diseased ponies. A large number of braves got drunk at Dayville, 50 miles west of this place, last night, and a hot fight ensued, in which guns, bot tles, clubs and knives were freely used and a number of the partici pants badly wounded. - Later two of the bucks engaged in a duel near the South Fork bridge, using their spurs as weapons. One of tbe In dians was so badly lacerated that death ensued shortly afterward. This seemed to Bobar the Indians, and, binding the body of the dead warrior on the back of a packhorse, his bead on one side and feet on the other, they 3truck out over the mountains toward the Columbia in the direction of Arlington. It is said that a second body, believed to be that of a child, was carried a way by the retreating Indians.

The las;, iw . days a dozen people, to whom the case had become known privately, have given up from six to 17 pieces of skin. Unless volunteers come forward , for this wholesale grafting, Mrs Nave must die. Two months ago she fell down stairs with a lamp, frightfully burn ing herself. A generous response is. expected from people here. Mrs. Nave's own daughter has given 14 pieces.

Three high waymen attempted to rob a United States registered mail wagon early today near the Chicago and North western railroad etatioo. The ac cidental discharge of a revolver frus trated their plans, and they escaped after a duel with the police. When the driver of the wagon, E. J. Graff, was driving past an al ley three men ran into the street in front of the team. Two of the men tried to stop the horses by grabbing the bridles, and the third undertook to climb on the seat. The one who was making an effort to get on the seat fired a shot which was appar ently accidental, and the horses jumped. Graff plied the whip at the same time and tbe team lunged ahead.' Shots were fired after the wagon but the driver would not stop. Two policemen saw one of the men and fired at him. The high waymen returned the shot and ran, making his escape. The other men slipped away during the revolver fight. Just received the finest line of cloth ing. We bought this from the best manufacturers and every suit is guar anteed.

The battleship Rhode Island was launch ed today at the yards of tbe , Fore River Ship & Engine Company. After the vessel had left the ways, the launching crew experienced an unexpected disaster. The great craft had attained such headway that she could not be stopped in deep water, and her anchor failing to hold, her stern was forced into a mud bank. Three tngs made fast to her as soon as possible, but the tide tell rapidly, and they were un able to move her. The company sent to BoEton for additional tugs, and it is expected the battle ship wouid be released before the next flood tide. A naval inspector who was on the scene expressed the o- pinion that the bottom was soft, the ship would not be damaged in the least.
