Letter from W. T. Subtil.
Dr. W. II. Rubcll, formerly of this
city, but now of Dalian, received lost
week the following, from his son Willie,
who has been soldiering iu India:
Mux Mir, May 29, 1881.
Dear Father: I have some pretty
good news to tell you, as far as it goes.
I had my discharge from the British
Army ia my hand yesterday, but it is
of no immediate use to me, as there is
a proviso in it There was also a let
ter from the commander-in-chief for in
formation. The substance of it was
this: In courtesy to the American Min
later at St James, His Royal Highness
the Duke of Cambridge, commanding
in chief, was pleased to sanction the
discharge of the soldier described in
the margin as soon as ho was in a post
lion to show that ho could pay his pas
sage to England. So the csso stands
like this: When I can deposit 300 iu
pees in tne hands ot the uoloncl L can
go where I wish, either remain in the
country or go out of it, and at any time
when I want to go I can claim a pas
sage in the mail steamers at the ex
pense of Government, If I go at my
own expenso, on landing in England
can claim the 300 rupees. There are
two ways for me to go cheaply. One is
to grt billeted in a troop ship (and
can easily doit) costing 7, or $35.
The other is to ship in a steamer for
London or Liverpool, for which I would
get about 12, as seamen are scarce
and wages high in Indian ports. If 1
go straight away I will get a free pas
sage by rail to the seaboard and will
there bo settled up with and discharged
receiving 13, deferred pay. But that
is not mine till after discharge, I wish
it was, so they will not take it as secur
ity for passage. ; Tho reason of that is
that the soldier may not lie destitute on
discharge. If you will send the money,
300 rupees, or $150, to the following
address, "Officer Commanding 28th,
The King's llegiment, Mian Mir Ben
gal, East Indies, via Southampton," I
will undertake to come to Dallas with
out spending a cent of it In fact I
can make money as far as New York,
and then it is only $35 to San Fran
cisco. If you can't send the money let
me know as soon as possible, as by
binding myself to the railroad company
they will go my security.
I wont before Col. Grogbun yester.
day and he told me just what I have
told. lie says I will be sent to Dec-
lallie at Government expenseand placed
under care of the Brigado Major of
Bombay and will there receive my dis
charge, deferred pay, and oilier clear
ances, and can then sell my regimental
kit If I procure a ship for myself the
money will be refunded. If not, the
Brigade Major will buy me a ticket,
send mo on board with an escort and
then I am free of the service, or if I
piefer it, lie will secure a posHuge in a
troopship for me. There is no news
here at present. The regiment is
pretty healthy. A few men are in
hospital with intermittent fever, but it
is a bad typo. One poor fellow of the
Band, died a few days ago with it It
is pretty hot now 110 to 115 inside
the bungalow. A piece of metal in the
shade is as hot as one likes to liear . in
the hand. The punkas are going all
night and we are literally frizzling. I
am enjoying pretty cood health at
present and hope I may got through
the sickly season all right There may
not be any cholera here this year, as
there was a good deal in 79, and there
is generally a couple- of clear years, but
there is always a terrible amount of fe
ver in October and NovcniW when the
cold nights come. I have been waiting
anxiously for a letter from home for a
long time, but each' mail I am disap
pointed, tut i hope to answer your re
ply to this in person.
Hoping that this will find you all
well I close with my love to all
Your affectionate son, Will.

another tax levy is made. This will
show an amount of indebtedness great
er than heretofore at the time of mak
ing the tax levy, and will require a '
somewhat higher tax that last year or
the year before The extra expense is
owing to tho loss of bridges during the

mountains between Coos bay and Rose-
burg. On Thursday lost he called at
the residence of Mr. Miller, six miles
from Dora, near the Coos Bay wagou
road and drawing a revolver, said to
"Give me a hat, coat and a square
meal, and I won't trouble you."
Miller, being an old roan and ' un
armed, immediately complied with
the request, and Higgins left in the di
rection of Roseburg. He was tracked
to a small wood near the summit which
woB.,surrounded in the evening by par
ties in pursuit and all folt confident of
his being captured. He managed to
escape, however, and was seen lass
Wednesday on tho Roseburg side of
the summit on the Coos Bay Wagon
Road. He drew a revolver on a man
near the summit and took a coat and
three dollars from him. Sheriff Lone
has offered a reward of $300 for his ar
rest and detention. The Coos Ba

inches, weight 180 to 190 pounds, light
complexion, sharp chin, light moustache
upper lip binds on teeth, teeth show
when smiling, no whisker.
