Bergen correspondent, which says:

However the nation is prepared
to take care of itself, if need be, by

Washington, Jane 2. Indica
tions today are that Judge Gilbert's
designation of Judge De Haven, of
San Franciaco, to try the land
fraud cases in Oregon will stand.
Attorner-General Moody said after
the Cabinet meeting that a ques
tion had been raised as to the right
ofVany official,- either President
Roosevelt, the department of jus
tice j)r Judge Gilbert, to make such
a designation, but that, if anybody
bad that authority, it was Judge
Gilbert. " . "

Hearing his dog barking in a small
clump of bushes, he went to the
snot and found a large panther in
the act of devouring a young kid
Having nothing with him but a re
volver, he emptied the contents in
to the animal's body. As,it was
apparently dead he pulled it from
the busbe?, whereupon the beast
came to life and attacked him. He
ran to the fence near by pursued by
the panther, and climbed over. The
animal did not follow at once, but
remained to fight the dog,- which
again had attacked him. At this
moment a brother of young Davis
appeared on the scene with a rifle
and killed the animal. -

Paris, June 3. Charles Malato,
who is accused by the French po
lice of organizing a plot to assassin
ate King Alfoneo of Spain, and who
has been arrested on this charge, is
well known in political and 1 litera
ry circles.; The prisoner belongs
to an ancient and noble Neapolitan
family. His grandfather, Count
M'lato, was commander-in-Chief of
ine arrcy 01 the last King 01 apies.
He had the ra'nk of " field marshal,
and suppressed the popular insur
rection against the dynasty with
vigor. Thf d marshal's son,
Charles' father, took the side of the
Commune in Parifv and was ban
shed for life in the penal settle
ment of new Caledonia, where
Charles was born. : . .
After the general amnesty ex
tended to the ' condemned anarch
ists and. communists, Charles and
his father, :, who is now over 90
years old, came to Paris. For a
time Charles Malato . collaborated
with Henri Rochefort: but they dis
agreed on the Dreyfus case, Malato
taking the. side of the condemned
captain. Socialist . journals have
since then received his articles,
which: are considered : remarkable
for their-polished literary style.

JJoiEe, Idaho, June 6. A re
markable casa of stroke by light
ning is reported rom Cassia conn
ty; the victim being Thomas Thorn
as, a well-known sheepman. He
was out at his camp and assisting
in marking lambs. A storm came up
and a bolt of lightning struck him
He seemed to rise some feet into
the air and dropped back to the
ground, apparently dead.
It was found that his heart still
beat, and efforts were made to re
vive him. After eeven hours he
regained consciousness and seems
to be in a fair way to recovery.
It was ascertained that the elec
tric current came first in contact
with the right side of Mr. Thomas'
head, singeing bis hair, then passing
down his right cheek, burning off
the mustache ou that side, passing
down upon his chest, ; where the
current separated and continued on
downward, encircling the abdomen,
and came together, to again - sepa
rate at the loins, and oce current
passed down each leg in . front of
the knee, where each' made a half
circle, changed to the calf and on
down, to the heel and then into the
ground,, tearing each shoa to pieces.
The course of the electric cuirent
upon the body, from where it came
in contact to the teet, which are
bruised and swollen, is marked , by
deep burns which, although painful,
are not considered to have reached
any vital part that may jeopardize
Mr. Thomas' final recovery.
Manila, June 3. Rear-Admiral
Enquist, who was commander of
the heavy cruiser squadron of the
Russian fleet, arrived in the bay at
9 o'clock this morning on board his .
flagship, the protected cruiser Au
rora, accompanied by the protected
cruisers Oleg and Jemtchug. AH
the vessels were more or less dam
aged and there were many : wound
ed men on board. -
Rear-Admiral Train, " on ; board
his flagship, the battle ship Ohio,
with the Wiscocsin, Oregon, Ral- '
eigh and Cincinnati, was outside
Corregidor Islands, maneuvering,
when the Aurora saluted ' with 13
guns and the Ohio answered..
Admiral Train and his squadron .
accompanied the Russian vessels to
Manila.': ; . . .
In an interview, Rear-Admiral -
Enquist's executive officer said:
'AV hen the battle began, the Ad
miral was aboard the "cruiser Oleg,

wuicu was uib a uumuerui times uy

"The admiral transfeired his nas,
to the Aurora, which then drew th
combined fire of many torpedo-boat
destroyers at close range and the at
tack of eubmarines. We were over
whelmed by the latter. A mist
arising, we made a dash lor the op
ening sea, and were followed by ths
Oleg and Jemptchug.'' 7.
Rear-Admiral Enquist is unin
jured. Captain Egorieff, of the Au
rora, was killed by a shell which
struck the conning tower, and be
was buried at sea the ; day before
reaching Manila. On the Aurora
three officers were, wounded, 20 of
the crew were killed and 83 were
When a complete report off" the
arrival of the ships at Manila has
bee made by Rear-Admiral Train,
aiay be determined by this gov
ernment that the ships must be in
terned, as in the case in the Lena
incident. Instructions were cabled
to Rear-Admiral Train this evening
to consider what steps it would be
necessary for him to take in case
Admiral Enquht should request
that his vessels should be interned.
It is the opinion in official circles
that the cruisers will be dismantled
aod held at Manila until the con
clusion of hostilities, and that the
request for their interment will
come from the Russian admiral as
soon as he shall have heard from
the St. Petersburg government.

Cuban Diarrhoea. .
TJ. S. soldiers who served in Cuba dur
ing the Spanish war know what this dis
ease is, and that ordinary remedies have
little more effect than so much water.
Cuban Diarrhoea is almost as severe and
dangerous . as a mild attack of cholera.
There is one remedy, however, that can
always be depended npon as will be seen
by the following certificate from Mrs.
Minnie Jacobs of Houston. Texas: ' "I
hereby certify that Chamberlain's Colic,
(Jholera and Diarrhoea Remedy cured
my husband of a severe attack of Cuban
Diarrhoea, which he brought home from.
Cuba. We had several doctors but they
did him no good. One bottle of this rem
edy cured him, as our neighbors will tes-
tify I thank God for so valuable a med
icine." For sale by Graham & Worthamv
