LAST HOME OF SEMINOLES
Indians to Whom High Tribute Has
Been Paid Have Been Removed
Now that the state of Florida has
gathered the Seminole Indians to
gether and placed them on a definite
reservation In one coiner of the Ever
glade, that reui.trkitlile trilie allmcti
passing attention. For many yenra
they have inhabited the Everglades,
ami been undisputed master, beyond
the outskirts of that region of swamp
and Jungle, of S4.me 800 square miles
of country which no white traveler
has ever iKMiet rated. Few whites have
known the Seminole at all, nntl per
haps none better titan Mrs. Minnie
Moore Wilson, who was recently In
terviewed for a New York paper. "The
Seminole brave," she said, "Is the
most upright man in the world. He Is
altogether moral, nnd never lies,
clients, steals or bleaks his word,
while bis wonderful squaw holds a
rnnk In her family and community un
rivaled among all the women cf
earth." A nice could hardly be more
highly spoken of; and the Seiulnoles
themselves, says Sirs. Wilson, dread
contact with American civilization,
lest It destroy their own standards of
conduct. One cannot but sympathize
with them when seeing the engineers

TRIAL OF REDS AT
Presiding Jndge Wilson Denies
Change of Venue to Ac
cusedl. W.W. .
Montrsano. Wash. With Judge John
M. Wilson of the superior court for
Thurston and Mason counties presid
ing, a trial of the 11 alleged I. W. W.
charged with the murder of Warren
O. Grimm, opened Monday morning,
The crime with which the Red are
charged was committed while the
American Legion parade In honor of
the signing of the armistice was pass
ing the I. W. W. ball In Centralis the
afternoon of November 11.
Four American Legion member
marching In a parade were killed by
bullet fired from the I. W. W. head
quarters and from the upper window
of two hotel across the treet from
the Red ball.
Ten alleged I. W. l. are charged
with the murder of Lieutenant Warrea
O. Grimm. Elmer Smith, alleged Red
attorney, 1 to be tried at the same
time on a charge of knowing the shoot
ing was planned.
As the first move George F. Vander
veer, attorney for the defense and
counsel for the I. W. W argued a mo
tion for a change of venue, alleging
undue prejudice and propaganda
against-the defendants In Grays Har
bor county and asking that the case
be removed to Tacoma.
Judge John M. Wilson of the aupe
rtor court, presiding, ruled that no
additional reason over those present
ed at the prevloua hearing bad been
furnished to show cause for change
of venue, and dismissed the motion.
Similarly, the defense failed to
coro in its attempt to procure a sep
arate trial for Loren Roberts, one of
the accused men, whose signed con
fession, implicating others, is in the
bands of the state.
CANADA INVADED BY EA3LE

The American eagle recently spread

Innded i.i Sandwich, Ont. Whence he
came, nobotly knows. But it was from

roof of a new house at the corner of
Lot and Peter Rtreets. It was Just
about noon, and children comins from
school espied him. says the Detroit .
The bird stayed on his perch for
some time, when the mob gathered be
low. The eagle surveyed the crowd In
a bored manner during the tunutes
when he was not engaged iu searching
with his beak for something or things
under his feathers. The crowd be

The American eagle spread his wings
to their full extent and. waiting not
for the year of parley between disput

Down the street of Sandwich the
proud bird trotted with unhurried
but dangerous steps. Through a gaunt
let of citizens he ran, Indian like, turn
ing his beak from right to left with
each new step to peck nt some venture
some bvstander or over-ardent pur
suer. It looked for n time as It the
bird would not be captured. But he
flnallv came to a man whoso attitude
was not hostile. With scarcely a
struggle the eagle gave tn.
His enptor was Clyde Thornton, 31
Teters street, nn American citizen.
During the remainder of the day the
Sandwich residents made tentative
pcnce-Mterlngs In the form of pieces
of meat. The bird accepted them un
graciously. His name is Roosevelt. Thornton In

Lucille Shepherd, thirteen years of
