the amount was and we had Bclmax
to curry our colors. I regarded Mann
as the only dangerous quantity against
us, and finding that he could be bought
for 11000, I put up the amount and took
him out of the race. Belmar won hand
somely. Since then we have watched
the horse carefully and found that he

Starts Out for Mount St. Ellas oa Pleas
Chicago. June 1. When the Northwest
ern transcontinental train pulled out of
Chicago last nig-ht It carried Prince
Lulgl of Savoy, who goes to Alaska to
Climb Mount St Ellas. Lieut. Cognac,
of the Italian navy, went with him.
The prince says he Is bent on health
and pleasure alone, and he cares nothing
for the glory of ascending the mountain.
"I cannot say mountain-climbing Is a
passion with me," he said. "I am fond
of outdoor sports and for a while was
doubtful whether I would spend (he sum
mer hunting In the RoclUvs or asceid
os me mountain peak. I finally deter
mined to make the attempt to scale Mt.
St. Ellas, partly because It has never
been scaled, and partly because I want
to see the grand scenery In Its neigh
borhood. It Is a Pleasure to succeed In
doing what others have failed in. 1 too,
may fail, but I and my friends will try
and that Is all anyone can do.
"The expedition has no scientific In'er

Slouch, whose reservation Is in the seat
of the Cheyenne Indian trouble, dire .'ting
him to immediately notify the depart
ment of the situation and to use every
effort to deliver the Indian fugitive to
the civil officers showing satisfactory
credentials. This decision was reached
after a conference between Acting Sec
retary of the Interior Kyan, Acting Com
missioner of Indian Affair Smith, and
Attorney General KcKenna and the ad
jutant general. The report which Captain
Slouch mailed on May 25, and which
reached here today, was reed, together

with considerable uneasiness the report
from the agent which he was peremp
torily directed to telegraph at once.

here as a warlike band, easily Inflamed
and whose actions cannot be too closely
guarded. The following la Secretary

criminals and prevents the sheriff from
making the arrests. Will you direct the
