CLEAR AND CONCISE
McKinley's Coming 'Message
to be Unique.
ITS SCOPE IS NOT VERRY WIDE
Adoption of Gace'i Plan, Annexation of
Hawaii, and Noninterference
In Cuba Advised.
Washington, Dec. 2. The message of
President McKinley will be devoted
practically to the subject of foreign re
lations and the currency problem. It will
be unique in one respect, in that it ig
nores the great oulk of matter usually
constituting the departmental portion of
presidential annual messages.
While the details of the currency plan
are not definitely known, they can be
stated to be in the main an incorpora
tion of the views submitted by Secretary
A strong presentation of the Hawaiian
question is made, and congress . is urged
to take immediate action toward rati
fication of the proposed annexation
As to Cnba, the message reaches the
virtual conclusion that existing circum
stances do not warrant interference in
the affair 9 of the island. .
The Alaskan problem is discussed at
some length, and a plan is laid for ex
tensive occupation of the public lands
and grants of right of way for roads by
which all parts ot the country may be
made more accessible.

Canton, O., Dec. -2. Mrs. Nancy Al
lison McKinley, mother of the president,
was stricken with paralysis this morn
ing, and it is feared that her death is
only a question of a short time. The
paralysis at present is in a mild form,
but awing to her extreme age, nearly 89
years, Dr. Phillips, the attending physi
cian, can give but little more hope to
the family. "
Abner McKinley of New York, has
been visiting her for a few days, and
when his mother wasstrickened imme
diately communicated with the presi
dent by telephone. The latter asked, if
he had best start for Canton at once,
to which Abner replied that he had best
wait for a farther, report from the phys
ician, who would make a call in time to
inform the president ot her condition by
The physician's statement to the fam
ily was that there was but little doubt
that the attack would ultimately result
in death, but there was no indication as
yet as to when the end might be expect

The mother of President McKinley for
some time has not '. been in real good
health, having suffered from a mild form
of grip. .
On Wednesday she 'seemed to have
materially improved, and her bright and
cheerful humor whs especially noted by
members of the family. Except in the
failure of her vocal organs Mrs. McKin

SQUAW AS A LUMBER JACK.
Inlqne Position of "Spike Shoe Ma."
. . in Northern, Wisconsin.
Oneof the best log drivers and all
around lumber jacks in northern Wis
consin ia a Chippewa -Indian, woman
named Maggie Moon, better known in
the woods and on the river as "Spike
Shoe Mag-."- She may now be seen every
day running; logs on the Nemadj river
at Superior, and she has been seen at
that same occupation every summer
during the last five years, while in the
winter season she has been employed
as an ordinary lumber jack to swing
the ax, to skid logs, or to drive a tote
Maggie is the wife of John Moon, a
stalwart Chippewa Indian, whose oc
cupation is also that of a lumber jack
and log driver. Mr. Moon took a con
tract once to harvest some timber for
the owner thereof, but he took the job
at too 'low a price and was obliged to
put bis wife to work chopping and haul
ing in order to save a man's wages. -
Mrs. Moon seemed to take to the work
as though she had been used to it all her
life, and she made such a handy lum
ber jack that her husband could never
see his .way el ear to dispense with her
services. Three years ago John Moon
went to work on the log drive and took
his wife with him just to see if she
could do the work, in case she had to.
Mrs. Moon rigged herself out with a
pair of bloomers, donned a slouch hat
and a pair of spike shoes, and sallied
forth with, her lord and master, - to
learn the log-driving business. '
After experiencing all manner ol
hardships and disappointments, she
finally mastered the. business, andean
now balance herself upon a floating log
with the dexterity of an acrobat. The
couple live during the driving season
in an old ).og cabin on the bank of the
Nemadj i river, and in winter they make
their abode in a small canvas tent,
usually pitched a short distance from
the mess camp. N. Y. Times.. ,
