Kebeth Murdered White Man
and Wife in Alaska.
SERVING A LIFE SENTENCE
President Roosevelt Will Be ABked
to Pardon 3Ian Who Confessed
After Conversion and Join
ing Salvation Army.
SEATTIiB, Aug. 5. (Special.) There
is being quietly circulated In Seattle
and Tacoma a petition to be presented
to President Roosevelt for the pardon
of Jim Hanson, or Kebeth, now serving
a life-sentence at McNeil's Island for j
murder. Already it nas many signers
from among those who know tho his
tory of the Indian and of his crime.
It is outljned in the present petition
that Kebeth committed the crime be
cause it was the law of his nation so
to do; that he was obliged, on the or
ders of his chief, to kill the man that he
thought had killed his tribesman; that
he believed he was committing no crime
but a religious deed when he shot a
white man and his wife, and that. If he
remains much longer at McNeil's IsJand,
he will follow the ranks of his fellow
Alaskan Indians, who are dying of con
sumption. Kebeth, or Jim Hansen, was. In 1S93,
a hunter In the country about Cook's
Inlet. People that have long lived In
that portion of Alaska state that he
was the best hunter there, fearless,
daring and tireless in the work. He
had no toch of the white man's habits
In him. He was an Indian, heart and
soul, and believed absolutely in the
traditions of his race. At one time the
man had the reputation of being the
most successful hunter of the brown
bear of any man In his section.
Skagway was the -market for the
hunters of his tribe, and Kebeth 'be
came well known there through the
selling of hides and game meat. "When
he was In town he entered freely into
the life there and, although not dissi
pated or bad in any way. he was known
as a "good fellow" in the rough fron
Tribesman's Mysterious Death.
A companion in nearly all his hunt
ing trips was a tribesman and relative
named Artikoor. The two were Insepar
able. One day in the Fall of 1899 Arti
koor proposed a hunting trip up Lynn
Canal. The men were then In Skagway.
Kebeth did not at that time desire to
leave the town and, accompanied by
his wife. Artikoor set out in his kaiak.
That was the last ever seen of cither
Artikoor or his wife. Later on the
beach at Lynn Canal portions of his
broken kaiak were found, his amulet
and a bracelet of copper, the latter .the
property of his wife.
The tribe was certain that Artikoor
and his wife had not met death in any
natural manner. The Indian had con
siderable gold about him, and the tribe
believed that he had been murdered.
A council of war was held. Tho shaman
ordered that the murderers of Artikoor
should be brought lo Justice. Kebeth
and six others were appointed the exe
cutioners of the guilty ones as soon as
they could be found.
Jim Hanson journeyed to Lynn Canal.
The slaters of hfs friend would, he ar
gued, some day come back to the spot
where the crime was committed. So he
simply waited. He believed that his error
was a far nobler one than that of the
white man that legally executes con
demned murderers. It was the law of
his tribe and of his country that justice
should be meted out Had ho not obeyed
it he would be a greater renegade than
the men that killed his friend.
Bert Horton and his wife, Florence
Horton. were living in Skagway at tho
time. They decided to go on a camping
and hunting trip together. By some un
fortunate stroke they landed their boat
near the spot where Kebeth and his men
had established their hidden headquar
ters. To the simple-minded Indians this
looked suspicious, and they watched the
Idle Action Results In Death.
Mrs. Horton Idly took a stick and be
gan digging in the sand, it was on the
same spot where Artikoor and his wlfa
had been killed. To the Indian, tnls was
proof that the two were criminals. Ke- t
beth was certain the woman was digging
tor tho gold of Artikoor that she had
buried. He first shot Horton from am
bush and then killed Mrs. Horton.
The Indian felt no horror at his crime.
To him it was no crime. It was justice of
the most simple and primitive kind. Obey
ing the orders given by the shaman be
neath the tribal totem-pole, he and his
companions burled tho bodies of their
victims in the sand and went their way.
Reporting what he- had done to the sha
man, Kebeth received commendation and
praise. He went again to his fishing and
hunting, conscious that he had done a
good deed and had proved himself a true
follower of his faith.
Some time later Kebeth was again in
Skagway. On the street he heard some Sal
vation Army people singing and preach
ing. He listened to them. He had never
before heard Christianity explained in
Just that way, so simply that even he
could understand what was meant. He
attended the meetings In the Salvation
Army Hall. In two weeks he was convert
ed and had accepted the faith of the white
man that he had heretofore despised. He
preached in Skagway, and owing to his
standing among the Indians, ho was en
abled to bring many over to the faith.
Confesses to Salvationist.
Adjutant McGlll was in charge of tho.
Salvationists In Skagway. To him one
day went Kebeth.
"I have but now discovered that I have
sinned," he said. "What shall I dor
When the Indian had told of the crime
he had committed. Adjutant McGlll was
In rather fca quandary what to advise.
Taking all the facts into consideration, he
did not believe it would be justice to ask
Kebeth to give himself up. He thought It
would simply be death for the Indian.
However, he explained the situation to
Kebeth as well as he knew, and the
Aleut, of hlB own accord, went to a Unl
ted States Marshal, confessed and took
the officers to where the bodies were hid
Kebeth was tried, convicted of murder
In the first degree and sentenced to death.
Here Is what the Attorney-General wrote
In his report of the trial:
"He frequently stated that he desired to
suffer death as an example to his people.

prevent them from committing similar
Judge Melville C. Brown, of the United
States District Court, presided at the
trial. To President McKInley Judge
Brown wrote as follows:
"His entire conduct during the trials of
the several other indh'iduals six of his
tribesmen who were present when he com
mitted the crime, being also" convicted for
prison sentences of several years "as
well as his own. convinced me of the hon
wsty of his confession and the purity of
the motives that induced it.
3Iovcd hy Religious Fervor.
"That he was moved and controlled by
a high religious fervor there can be. no
doubt. "When asked tvhy the sentence of J
death should not bo passed upon him, 1
" My brother, .1 have done my duty.
Now do yours."
.President McKInley commuted Kebeth's
sentence from death to life Imprisonment,
The President was considering a pardon
when he was assassinated.
In stripes at McNeil's Island Kebeth Is
a model prisoner. Though he, has been
there for more than two years', his reli
gious enthusiasm has never abated. Night
and morning he prays, and at meals asks
a blessing. During his hours of liberty
in the corridors he elngs religious songs
BOY BURGLARS ARE CAUGHT
Dads of Good Family Steal and Are
Prond of It.
NEW YORK, Aug. 4. Two - boys In
knickerbockers attempted yesterday to
loot a hous in WeBt BStrhty-fourth street.
They forced an entrance- with all the
care and skill of experienced burglars, but
were caught as they emerged through
tho front door, carrying a bag, in which
were jewelry, cigars, camera films, memo
books and thimbles. In the loot was a
valuable pearl necklace. The entire lot
is valued at $1000. Tho boys are both from
g0od fannies, and their parents were
thunderstruck when summoned to the Po
lice Station and told of their exploits.
One was 12 years old and the other 14.
Neither would say much about their ex
ploit, but took no pains to show they
were proud of it.
A passer-by who was made suspicious
by the action of the two boys was In
strumental In their capture. He called
three policemen, who, on . Investigation,
found that the boys had pried open a
trapdoor In the roof and broken through

Heavy Postofficc Business.
Portland Postofflce records were broken
last month, the business of July having
exceeded that of December, by $500.
December Is usually the heaviest month
of the year in point of business, and the
comparison was made from it in order to
show the Increase.
The office receipts for July. 1S03, were
J40.920.2S, as against (28,735.34 for the cor
responding month of 1904, or an Increase
of $12,181.84. being 42.4 per cent.
This Increase Is due in large part to the
extra buness caused by the Fair, but it
Is also traceable in part to the natural

WAYS OF WOMEN
Who Smoke in Public After-Dinner Cigars of
Viennese Ladies Constant Puffing of Japanese
MRS. HUGH FRASER. the author, sis
ter of Marion Crawford and uiece of
Julia "Ward Howe, who sailed last week
for Japan, In a talk about her life abroad
told of the universality tf the custom of
smoking among upper-class women of all

never seen one of the nobility smoke. No

has ever admitted to me that she smoked, j

They may not have spoken of it, feeling
that a Western woman would object, and
it would not be courteous to do so.
"But if the upper-claw women are not
seen smoking, the middle and lower-class
women smoke constantly. On long rail
road Journeys you will always ce the
women smoking. They smoko the three
whiffs of tobacco that the little pipe con
tains, and then fill and light it again.
They have told me that they smoke in
this way because it Is the first whiff of
the tobacco which Is agreeable. For my
part. I think their tobacco la very bad. I
believe It Is home-grown, and it Is not at

smoked, though never in my presonce.
They used to sit on the steps and smoke,
but that was in their own quarters. I
once raised the wages of my personal
maid, and the first thing she did was to
engage a maid for herself, and the duties
of this little girl were chiefly to prepare
her tea and make ready her pipe.

and Russians. In many circles In Bag-

have a peculiar rule there about smoking
In public. At after-theater suppers one

"All Russian women smoke, and smoke

through them to a great extent that the
women of other countries have taken up
the practice. They have an excellent to

THE pig plays a part in many beliefs.
Mr. Hickson, who traveled much In
the Celebes and adjacent Islands, eays tho
London Globe, found a tribe who be
lieved that the whole earth Is borne by
a pig belonging to tne goa juaic-a-wa-
long, who dwells in the under-world, and
that the frequent earthquakes In that re
gion are caused by the pig rubbing itself
against the trees.
Some of the Inhabitants, however, assert
that the world 'does not stand on the pig
Itself, but on a number of plies, and it Is
against these that the porker rubs itself.
with such terrible results. Another exam
ple of pig superstition Is found In the
mythology of tho East, from which one
learns that when the earth was hidden
away by the malice of a giant, the god
Vishnu took upon himself the form of a
great boar. This animal had fiery tusks,
with which It rooted the earth up from
the depths of Patalas, putting It once
more In its proper place. This circum
stance places the pig high in the estima
tion of a large portion of the people of
Asia by associating it with his third Ava
tar, In commemoration of which the god
Is sometimes represented In Hindu tem
ples with the head of a pig.
Animals generally, however, have not
Insignificant positions In the realms of
superstition. Thus, in Holland and Bel
glum, to kill a stork Is considered ono of
the greatest misfortunes that could hap

follow him through life. In the Ural
Mountains tho peasantry believe that If
a wolf sees a man before the man sees

remain so as long as the wolf lives. The
Eskimos consider that bad fortune will
fellow a huikor unless whenever he kills
Bipolar bear he cuts off the animal's nose
and throws it on the ice. The Lapps, too,
believe that the bear Is Invested with
supernatural powers, apd consequently
never mention his name, speaking of him
as "God's dog," or "the old man In the
fur cloak." The screeching or an owl or
the killing of one, as well as- the croaking
of a raven, -or the crowing of a Iven, are

But some of the most Interesting super
stitions are connected with death. In
some country districts of England and
Germany there Is an idea that If the bees
swarm upon a rotton tree there will be a
death In the family owning or living on
the property within a year. In Greenland
when a child dies the natives bury a
live dog with it. to be used by tho child
as a guide to the other world, because,
they say, a dog can find its way any
where. A prettier custom prevails among the
Seneca Indians when a maiden dies. A
young bird is Imprisoned until It first be
gins, to sing, and thon they kiss It and
set It at liberty over the girl's graved be
lieving that it will not fold Its wings nor
close Its eyes until it has flown to the
spirit land and delivered Its burden of J
affection to the departed one. In this :
way It Is not uncommon for a scoro of
birds to be set loose over tne same
grave. The Mojaves say that all the dead
who are not cremated are turned, into
owls, and the screeching of one of these
birds at night they imagine to bo caused
by the spirit of some dead Mojave.
And In the Mohammedan creed animals
have a place. Among the beliefs .of the
followers of the Prophet Is one that 11
animals were admitted to Paradise. These
were the dog Khatlm, of the Seven Sleep
ers of Ephesus; Balaam's ass; Solomon's
ant, the particular one which reproved the
sluggard; Jonah's whale, Ishmael's ram,
the camel of Salcb, the cuckoo of Belkls,
the ox of Moses; AI Borak, the animal
which conveyed Mohammed to heaven;
the ass on which Christ rode into Jeru
salem, and the one on which the Queen
of Sheba rode when she paid her famous
visit to Solomon. This Is not, however,
by any means the only superstitious be
lief concerning Paradise. For instance,
many of the South Sea Islanders believe
that heaven can only be inherited by per
sons whose physical forms aro perfect.
Where this Idea prevails a man will die
rather than, submit to amputation. It
would seem that John Chinaman's pig
tall owes its existence to the belief that
