St. Paul, Jliun., Nov. 21. Walter A.
Baij, Percy S. Luke and James S. Luke,
of Victoria, Australia, reached St. Paul
last evening. They are on a tour of the
world from Melbourne, a bet having
been made by one Bryce, the proprietor
of a Victoria spoiling paper, and a Bal
laret banker, that the trip could not be
made under certain conditions in eight
months. They readied Tacoma on Sep
tember 20th, aud started across the con
tinent on foot, following the line of the
Northern Pacific. The conditions of the
bet are that every appliance may be used
for traveling alter reachiLg New lork.
but that the lourney across Worth Amen
ca must be made on foot. The bet is tor
three thousand pounds and the pedes
trians are due at the Auckland club in
Melbourne iust ei?ht months from the
date of their departure. The travelers

Salt Lake, Nov. 21. la the Mormon
investigation to-day Mrs. B. Smith, neice
by marriage of Joseph Smith, was called
as a witness tor the churcn. She had of
ficiated in the Endowment house, but
knew of no oath taken to avenge the
blood of Joseph and Hiram Smith.
George Q. Cannon, the noted Mormnn
leader, was called by the prosecution, and
identified the circular sent out by him
self and John Taylor in 1885, calling on
the saints in this and adjoining territories
to contribute to the fund lor the defense
of the Mormons charged with violating
the Ldmunds law, elc.
Mrs. Gil more went through the Endow
ment house seventeen years ago with a
number of others, all of whom were called
upon to swear to avenge the blood of
Joseph and liiram Smith upon the Ameri
can nation, and teach it to their children
and children's children to the fourth gen
eration. Any one who violated the oath
or revealed the secrets was to be killed.
Ilenry W. Luwrence, president of the
Chamber of Commerce, testified that he
became a Mormon in childhood. He
came to Ltah thirty-nine years ago, of
ficiated in the Endowment house for sev
eral years, and was excommunicated in
1809 for questioning the right of the
priesthood to dictate ia temporal affairs.
Persons going through the Endowment
bouse always took the oath of vengtnee.
There was another covenant to obey the
priesthood in a.l things, and the penalty
of death was attached to the violation of
the covenants or the revealing of the se
crets of the house. Ia the time of Brig-
bam Young the piiestbood was supreme,
and Young controlled the people in all
things. The church was in opposition to
the government, and the feelings of the
people were being alienated more and
more. Wi'ness and some others started
a magazine to disseminate more advanced
ideas, and were tried before a council of
the priests, with George Q. Cannon as
prosecutor, aud were' excommunicated.

pected to control the whole earth in time,
and then Christ was to come in person
and take charge. When witness wa3 ex
communicated he was doing a business
of $15,000 to 20,000 a month, but after
the trial his business fell off greatly, and
he was socially ostracised. The cross
examination failed to shake Lawrence's
Penrose has not yet tiled his statement
and the court ruled this afternoon that

purged himself of contempt.
Missoula, Mont , Nov. 22. A terrific
snow storm struck here at 5 o'clock tl is
morning. It is still raging with fury.
All the trains on the Norhern Pacific
are blocked. Two serious wrecks are re
prrted near Bonner, several miles east, on
the banks of the Hellgate river, in which
several trainmen were injured. A special
train conveying physicians bas gone to
the scene.
Helena, Mont., Nov. 22. Two fright
ful wrecks occurred on the Northern Pa
cific this evening. The first occurred
near Bearsmouth about 3 o'clock, the
truck spreading and derailing five cars of
the second section of west-bound freight
No. 15. A brakeman was seriously in
jured, but the physicians have some hope
ot saving his life. A wrecking train was
immediately sent out and in about three
boors the track was cleared tor tratiic.
Before this work was lairly finished
another and much greater disaster oc
curred near Bonner. The first section
ot west-bound freight No. 13 collided
with a construction train. Bath engines
were complete! v demolished and several
cars were reduced to splinters. Several
trainmen were severely injured, and the
physicians are now at the scene and ad
ministering to the wants of the sufferers.
The local officials are also at the scene
of the wreck. The passenger train will
he delayed twenty hours at least. The
west-bound passenger will not get
through before to-morrow noon.
New York, Nov. 22. Two babies were
shot by their father, Joseph Smith, at 321
East Ninth street, this afternoon. Eliza
beth, aged" 2 years, is dead. Mary, 11
months old, has a bullet in her breast.
The father was arrested. Smith only
succeeded in inflicting a flesh wound on
himself. The bullet was directed toward
his stomach, but was deflected by a but
ton. Smith contracted consumption dur
ing the great blizzard, and the doctor
had told him that be could not live later
than next spring. To add to his misery,
his wife deserted him and the children
two weeks ago, without warning or cause,
and bmitb was driven to desperation.
His wife, it is said, bas been fond of male
San Fbanoico, Nov. 22. At the office
of the Simpson Lumber Company to-day,
it was stated that the lost tug was valued
at 15,000 and is the second tug of the
same name which the company has lost.
There was no insurance on the vessel.
Captain Hill has been in the employ of
the Simpson Lumber Company between
fourteen ' and til teen years, and was re
garded as a most able seaman. He leaves
a widow and two children in North Bend,
to mourn bis loss.
A. W. Sefton arrived here yesterday
from Coos bay. He saw the wreck of
tug Fmrles at the mouth of the Umpqua,
Thursday alteroon. Tne action of the in
spector ot hulls in allowing the tug to go
to sea is very generally condemned by
the people of Gardiner and vicinity, as
the fact that she was not seaworthy was
m torious. The inspector had forbidden
her to go to sea, but afterward couuter
manded the order, and thus caused the
death of at leatt nine persons. One-bait
of the hull U lying in the mud half a
mile below Gardiner, wliile the stern,
with the name on it, floated half a mile
above. It is the general impression that
the tug sprung a leak and Captain Hill
was endeavoring to get into Umpqua
for safety, as he bad no other business
there and was within twenty miles of her
destination, Coos bay. Captain. Hill has
been on the Fearless ever since she was
built, some seventeen years ago. He was
in command of a tug named the Fearless
which was wrecked at the mouth of Coos
bay some eighteen years ago and saved
the lives of bis crew by tying a line
around bis waist and swimming ashore
with it. He was one of the best kno?n
men in the coasting trade and was highly
respected, and much sorrow is expressed
en account of iiis sad fate. He leaves a
wife and three children at North Bend,
Uoos Day.
Ottawa, Nov. 24. Sir John Mac-
donald has resigned the presidency of the

Walla Walla.Nov. 21. The Ion
drawn out tiial of So Ho Me, lor killing
Ah Gow last June, teririuated this morn
lag, the jury bringing in a verdict of
murder in the second degree. As the
case progressed, it developed that is was
really a trial between the Hang Lung and

known local character, who is on the

caled weapons. The police had to

Helena, Nov. 24 The situation this
evening remains without appaient change.
None of the members have left the city
but were scattered about town nearly the
entire day. Towards evening groups
were quietly discussing matters in the
hotel lobbies. It became visible that
some heavy work is being done. The
Repuplican leaders to-night assert hav
ing the best of the situation and a stn
sation may be expected within the next
lorty-eight hours.
Sanders and Powsis have commenced
au earnest and active canvass for the sen
atorship. Sanders is not overlooking any

sition. The west siders are still strongly
in his favor and Hershgeld was remark
ably uneasy all day, Lse Mantle's

Walla Walla, Nov. 24' From par
ties who have returned from Olvmpia. it
ia learned that at an interview between
tween Mr. Crowley and Governor Moore
on the senatorial question, Governor
Moore told Mr. Crowley in plain words
tbut he had lied to him which was re
sented by Mr. Crowley. An attempt to
strike Mr. Moore was prevented by Mr.
Morrison who was present. It is also
slated that afterwards Moore, Fairweath
er, Percival and others called on Mr. Al
len, and then and there Mr. Moore plain
ly told Mr. Allen thtt be had also been
very economical with the trnth ; that Al
len had been false to bis promises, and
that he (Moore) would see that Mr. Al
len would have cause to regret his coali
tirn with the Squire party and his
perfidy to him aud friends, and that be
would in the future have nothing what
ever to do with Allen. Moore's language
is pronounced most bitter and emphatic
to which Mr. Allen made no response
whatever but sat and took ft all, much
to the disgust of some of Allen's friends
who were present. It is also stated by
Walla Waila parties who were on the
ground that bad uot Mr. Allen msde the
combination it is seriously doubted if his
election would have occurred.

Chicago, Nov. 25. When the Cronin
case was called this morning, milkman
Mertes, who bad testified for the prose
cation, was recalled by the defense and
went over his testimony again. He also
testified as to a conversation with a police,
man a day or so after the body was dis
covered. Witness told the officer that he
saw a bay horsn with a white face stop in
front f the Carlson cottage, and saw a
tall man get out and go into the cottage.
He admitted that be told the officer that
J. W. Fralick was employed by the de-
fendent (Kunze) from April 26 until June
the date ot bis arrest. He said that
Kunze worked as usual on May 4,
The testimony of several witnesses was
then taken to contradict the evidence
given by Carlson to the effect that at a
certain time on March 19 he heard Burke
tell O'SulIivan that he had rented the
cottage. The testimony was to the effect
that U Sullivan was several miles from
Lakeview at the time mentioned.
After some further minor evidence the
defense rested and the prosecution began
the rebuttal. Dr. Curran was called and
asked if he had heard James Lyman, one
of the witnesses for the defense, say that
Cronin's death had been ordered by the
Clan-na-Gael. The defense objected and
pending recess the court reserved its de
cision. In the afteruoon session the court
decided in favor of the defense the ques
tion as to the admissibility of the rebuttal
testimony to objection had been
Two more witnesses were examined.
after which adjournment was taken, the
state's attorney promising to conclude the
rebuttal testimony to-morrow.
San Francisco,Nov. 25 An Examiner
special from Nashville, Tenn.,says: "The
movement in aid of Jefferson Davis is
attracting wide attention. It now looks
as if tho money will be easily raised. A
letter was received from Senator Colquitt,
of Georgia, to-day as lollows:
Atlanta will go to work at once through
our organization to raise all the money
that is necessary, more too. Many of us
have long wanted to do something sub
stantial lor the old chieftain, and have
only been prevented by the statement
that there was no necessity for it, and
that it would not be received. Atlanta
will do her portion. The Fulton County
Veterans' Association is a strong body
ready to help. The old Rebels from
every corner of the state, irom the
mountains to the seaboard, will come to
the rescue of President Jefferson Davis
home. We will raise the money at once.
How much is needed, wire me, atd write
promptly, ou will greatly oblige yours
truly, Hugh II. Colquitt.
San Francisco, Nov. 25. The Chroni
cle's special Irom Salt Lake gives the fol
lowing particulars of the burning of the
insane asylum at Blackfoot: At 1:15
Sunday morning the asylum was discov
ered to be on tire, by a eight attendant,
An alarm was at once given, and all
hands then turned to rescuing the in

known. Only the main buildings and
contents were burned. The new addition

all outbuildings, were saved together with
some furniture. The origin of the fire
was probably from a kitchen range in the
basement, lue female patients are now
in the Methodist church and males in the
courthouse, but . will be removed to the
new asylum buildings to-morrow. Em
ployes lost nearly all their effects in try-.
mg to save the patients.
Slews of the Past Week Called from
Oar JKschanees.
News, Nov. 23d.
A new postotiiee called Liberty has been
established on what i3 known as West
Branch, a tributary of Bridge creek.
Ten wagon loads of hay were purchased
here this week and taken to the Warm
Spring Indian Agency for the use . of the
government stock employed there.
arm spring Indians are engaged in
hunting and killing deer ou the desert near
farewell rsend, contrary to the law that
forbids it at tbs season of the year.
The prayer meetings in Prineville which
are held regularly, are growing in interest.
These meetings are forerunners of reviyals,
which can only result in much good.
It is said by our local hunters that deer
are far more plentiful in this county now
than they wrre two years atro. 1 his happy
state of things is simply the result of a w 11
observed (not enforced) law.
While John A. Brown was on a trapping
and bunting expedition on the head waters
of the Deschutes recently he caught a cin
namon bear in a number 4 steel trap that
had been set for ar, otter. The trap held
bruin safely. When his bearship was
dressed the caroas weighed 150 pounds.
While we were "shooting ducks" on the
npper Deschutes last week, we observed
that all the settlers up there are amply pre
pared for the rigors of a severe winter.
Their bouses are comfortable and their com
modious barns are well tilled with hay.
1'hey also have abundant shelter for their
stock that niay be used during stormy
Reveiw, Saturday.
Sheepmen generally report their sheep in

other steaks 8c. per lb., tallow in 5 and 10
lb. tins 10c.
From A O. Bedell, who arrived here
Thursday, it is learned that Sanders Lo
gan's dwelling with all its contents, on
Camp creek, was destroyed by tire last
Sunday night. Mr. Bedell did not know
the cause of the tire nor the amount of the
loss. We understand there was no insur
ance on either the house or furniture.
Friday morning the people of this place
were somewhat surprised op arising to find
the'gronnd covered with 71 inches of snow,
the first that had fallen this season. Ham

The KuMev Harder.
Pendleton Tribune.
From behind the iron- bars that hem in
the quarters allotted to the county's priso
ners, Pilieu, the Indian accused of the mur
der of Mrs. Russey, watches the wintry
days come and go, and grows despondent as
he thinks of the world beyond which is to
him so far and yet so near. He wifl not be
there muoh longer, for ere many days he
will be summoned before the tribunal which
will either restore to him his liberty or send
mm to the scaffold to expiate an unpardon
able crime. The witnesses who know any.
thing of the incidents connected with the
brutal murder which is laid at his door have
been summoned to Portland to undergo ex
amination before the Grand Jury, and if ho
is satisfied that the prosecuting evidence is
substantial, Pilieu and hia fate will be
transferred to Judge Deady's court.
lhe story of the murder was told so long
ngo that it will, perhaps, not be out of place
to recapitulate the accompanying circum
stances. Mrs. Russey. an seed woman who
wanted but decade of the three score and
ten years allotted to life, resided on the
Umatilla reservations at a point abont lif.
teen miles from this city, lier borne was
an unpretentious one, for she was not a
woman of means, and so was the residence
of her son, who, with his wife, dwelt in
cottage about one hundred yards from her
abode. It was a bright sinning morning
last spring when hor son rapped at the door
to awaken her and prepare for their custo
mary Sabbath visit to the church. He got
no answer. He rapped again, and then im
patient or fearing that something had hap.
peued, he opened the door and entered the
room, x'he spectacle before his eyes was
enough to unnerve any man, for his mother
lay dead npon the floor, her head a crushed
and beaten mass, from which the blood
slowly oozed and matted her disheveled
hair. Young Russey lost no time in oivini,
a general alarm and when response came
the work of searching fot a olua to tha mur
der was commenced. An important point
of evidence was soon found in the shape of
apieco of cloth that bad evidently been
wrenched by the deceased from her assail
ant's habiliments. A few yards from the
door there was also a link in chain of evi
dence for on tho ground lay a piece of an
Indian breouh-clout and by the condition or
the earth a horse bad evidently been tied
Conjectures as to who the murderer could
e were many: the brunt of tha ananininna
falling on Pilieu, who, it was said, bad been
frequently seen about the cabin, with avi-
dently eyil intent. Inquiries led to many
results that tended to confirm the suspicion. .
One individual said that Pilieu was drunk
on the night of the murder, another had
seen hia squaw hastily washing his clothes
in the creek the following morning, and to
cap all, it was asserted that from his gar
ment was misamg a piece of cloth coinciding
exactly with that found in the murdered
woman s room. So on the strength of these
statements Pilieu was arrested and brought
before a committing magistrate, who or
dercd him to jail to await the action of the
grand jury, and there he has been ever
since, shunning his fellow prisoners, and
seeking a comer where he can sit and mope
in solitude, as he was doing yesterday after
noon when a Tribune reporter was admitted
within the cage to see him. The stoical ex
pression of the Indian's race seemed more
marked than usual on his face, but his eves
lit up with a gleam of interest when , hi
visitor mentioned the subject of the mur
der. At first his replies to all queries were
monosyllabic, but suddenly he warmed nn
and commenced to talk with great vehe
mence. "1 did not kill her." he said in the
peculiar jargon of the Indian race. "I was
at nome at Uayuce creek all that night and
can bring people to prove it. Again, I have
no horse, and they say that I rode np to
her house aud tied ' my horse outside,"
Then he checked his outburst and returned
to his former reserved, impatient style, from
which no efforts of his interviewer could
again budge him. His "Good bye" was
said with evident relief as his guest arose to
take his departure and he retired to the:,
corner of his cell and threw himself npon
his bed as the heavy iron door closed and
left him in solitude.
