Salem, Jan. 25. An investigation of
a startling nature may follow In the
wake of a document containing a series
of charges, which Is at present being
privately circulated In the senate
chamber, and which Is signed and
vouched for by L. H. McMahon, a local
attorney of Salem, with reference to
what he terms the misconduct of affairs
at the state penitentiary. ' Whjle the
matter has not yet come publicly to th
attention of the state senate, this much

One of the republican senators de
clared he will Introduce a resolution
calling for the appointment of a com
mittee with power to subpoena wit
nesses and take testimony under oath,
as to what they know of affairs at the
penitentiary. This same senator wilt
also urge that the resolutions be ad
opted and acted upon. , McMahon's
specific charge is that Superintendent
James applied 1200 from the repair
fund to bis personal benefit and to
the benefit of the warden, and a list of
articles alleged to have been purchased
with money from the fund for the su
perintendent and the warden Is speci
fied. It Is also alleged that groceries
and other articles used by the families
of the superintendent and warden were
charged to and paid for by the state.

Children Keep Lonely Vigil Betide
. .... Their Mother's Corpse. s
Salt Ste Marie, Mich., Jan. 25. John
G. Johnson, an Indian, who has been
hunting in the wilds of Algoma, be
yond the end of the Algoma Central
railroad, returned to his house this
week and found his wyfe dead. The
couple's three small children were
keeping a tearful vigil in the stricken
borne beside the silent woman who
could no longer respond to their cries.
Taken sick suddenly in the lonely
house, 100 miles from the nearest town
and with the children too small to rea
lize their parent's distress or prove
of any assistance, the helpless woman
died without anything being done to
alleviate her sufferings. The husband
brought his three title ones to Sault
Ste Marie and alone started back on
his long tramp to bury his wife in the
woods near the home in which she
died. The children have been Bent to
the Shlnwauk home for Indian chil
dren. Nobody accompanied the hun
ter on his homeward Journey and he
alone will be present at the burial.
