' Chained to a Rail and Cremated.
Leavenworth, Knn., Jan. 17. Frod
Alexander, the murderer of l'eurl
Forbes and tho fiend who uttomplod to
cilmiually assault Miss Eva Hoth last
Saturday night, sui rounded by a yoll
lng mob, his clothes torn, his faou
bloody with his own blood, was
drugged from his cell iu tho court
houso, pleading fur his life, and, after
being drained around tho court houso
yard for ID minutes, was loaded into
a wugou with his captors and takou to
tho place whore Miss Forbes' body was
found, to bo burned to death.
"Hum him; hang lilm; no, burn
him," ro-oclioed throuuh tho air, and
each moment tho uncontrolled passions
of tho mob btfcilme wilder.
Tho negro was taken from his cyll at
the stato penitentiary at 4 this aftor

brought to town, CO doputy marshals
surrounding him. Deputy Sheriffs
Vunce Myers and Tom lirowu sat in
the hack on olther sido of him. There
wete GO buggies and wagons in tho pro
cession which followed tho buck, and
it was au awful march indeed for Fred
Alexander. The trip to town wan
mado quickly, and tlioro was no at
tempt to create a disturbance.
Whon Fourth and Olive streots were
reached the police, who wero in the
hack following tho one in which Alex
ander was concealed, jumped out and
chased several negroes. This created
a diversion, which attracted the at
tention of every ono, and, in tho ox
citomont, the huck in which Alexander
was concealed, was frantically driven
to the county jail, und just as the mob
reached the doors, ho wns locked in
tho first cell on tho oast sido of tho
In tho meantime tho crowd had
rushed down the side gate of tho stock
ndo und iu a moment there was a yoll
lug pack In tho jail yard. Tho. sido
door, which was mado of heavy sheet
iron, was tho noxt object of attack.
Several of the thoughtful ones of tho
mob had provided tliemtolves with
sloduo hammers and cold chisels, and
is wus tho work of only n fow moments
befoio thn hiuges wero cut from this
and, with the help from inside, it was
oit its hinges in a moment. More men
pushed inside, and the iron bar was
again called into play, and the doors
of tho cell room broken down. A man
with sharp oyos spied a shapeless,
clinging mass crouched down iu ono
corner of the dark cell. Tho mob
issued iu a moment, diugging the fiend
by tho coat collar.
At a quarter past S o'clock Alexand
er was brought to tho scene of the
murdor of Pearl Forbes. The oxaot
fcpot where I ho murdered girl was
found was located by tho loaders ot tho
crowd. Alexander was brought up in
a wagon wltn n dozen mou.
Tho ilrst thing dona wns to plant a
railroad iron upright in tho mud. This
was made fast to cross lions firmly
bound to tho upright iron with wires.
To this tho man was dragged and
chained to the upright railroad iron.
Chains and irons vere wrapped about
him, with his hands still shackled fast
to tho post. Coal oil was then poured
over him and the match touched to

burnod at tho stake. Alexander was
usked to make a confession, but do
olarol ' himself innocent. As the
flamos loaped about him Aloxandor
turned ghastly pulo, and then for the
first time reulizod that bis death was
near. In less than five minutes ho was
hanging limp and lifeless by the chains
that bound him.
As soon as the crowd saw that life
was oxtlnot, it bogau to slowly (lis
pnrso. There were hundreds how
ever, of tho more morbid, who stayed
to tho last. Men kept piling on wood
all tho time until about 7 o'clock,
when tho flames wore allowed to die
down. As soon as the flames had died

to approach there was a wild soramble

wounded nd 73 missing. This does
not account for tho British losses at

SAXONY SOLICITS A LOAN.
Announcement Made In New York Amount
Now York, Jan. 1C. Announcement
was mado iu Wail street of tho author
ization by the kingdom of Saxony of
u new 3 per' cent loan for 80,000,000
marks, rquivalont to about $20,000,
000. It is expeoted that subscriptions
toward this loan will .bo roceived in
this city in much the snmo manner as
iu the case of tho Bavarian loan offeied
It is tho opinion of foreign bankers
that tho imperial German government
has decided t) withhold its own na
tional loan, stuted to bo for 000,000,
000 marks, or $160,000,000, until tho
various statos of tiie government havo
made their negotiations.
In quick succession havo boon offered
loans of tho freo olty of Hamburg, tho
kingdom of Jluvaria, and now tho king
dom of Saxony. It is definitely known
iu banking circlos that both Germany
und Great Britain have the issuance
ot heavy loans in contemplation.
Whlc.l will bo the first announced,
however, cannot bo learned. It is
doubtful if satisfactory arrangements
can be made to finance any considera
ble portion of theso loans horo. At
loust, the arrangements that can be
made, it is reported, are not ns favora
ble as those made when the 10,000,
000 British oxchoquor loan and the
80,000,000 marks imperial German
treasury loan wero orgunized, Tho
German government, it Is understood,
lias foundod American financiers
through their Ilorliu correspondents on
tho prospocts of placing a portion of
the contemplated loan here, but has
found that conditions wore not highly
favorable. The German loan could be
placed in that country on better terms

, under Dr. Puptn's direction, the com
pany equipped a lino from Bedford

' closed on glass Inslnators on the polej.
I The test wus so satisfactory that about

I the company puid tho money and closed

Calls for Five Thousand
AUTHORITIES INCREASE THEIR EFFORTS
British Offensive Operations Have Ceased for
the Present Martial Law Proclaimed
Throujhont Cape Colony.
London, Jan. 10, Lord Roberts,
who was entertained prlavtely at a
dinner last evening by United Service
Club, the guests including tho Prince
of Water, tho Duke of York, the Duke
of Cambridge and some 800 officers,
has issued from the war ollico a stir
ring appeal to the cstintry for a
prompt responno to the call for 6,000
yeomanry, whose past services in South
Africa ho highly commends to tho
gratitude of the nation.
The authorities continue to hold a
hopeful view regarding the South Afri
can situation, but they teem to recog
nize that vigorous measures aro neces
sary. The proclamation of marital
law throughout the whole of Cape
Colony, Lord Kitchener's strong mens
ures aaginst the population of the re
publics, tho placiug on reduced rations
of tho wives of men in the field, and
slmlar measures, go to show that theio
Is heavy work.
British offemive operations have
ceased for the present. It is supposed
Lord Kitchener is collecting his
strength for a final effort to crush or to
capture the commandos by a repetition
of the tactics which caused the sur
render of General Cronje and General
Prlnz Loo. It Is alleged that the
Boers who are concentrating at Caro
lina nnd Ermole are preparing to de
scend into Natal.
The casualty list issued yesterday
shows that the Boerahave released 397
British who were captured at Helvetia
and Belfast. The facts regarding the
capturo ut Belfast have not been al
lowed to transpire.
It is asserted that moro heavy naval
guns will be landed at the Cape. In
formation as to tho doing of the in
vaders is hard to obtain, but It is clear
that they are getting very little help
from the Dutch. Twice they attempted
to capture Berkley East, but both
times they were repulsed. For three
days they occupied Sutherland, but
they cleared out on the approach of
tho British. Somo scattered parties
are reported oparating In different
parts. Apparently the iuvaders aban
doned the idea of attacking Clan Wil

TO PROTECT WALRUS.
The Indians' Food Supply Endangered
Port Townsond, Jan. 10. Reports of
the wanton destruction of walrus havo
reached the treasury department at
Washington. Walrus come from the
Arctic on the Ice flow during the early
portion of the open season to points be
tween St. Michael and Cape Nome,
and thousands ot passengers on early
steamers plying between those places
shoot into bauds, killing ana wounding
many. Captains of whalers have re
ported that thousands of carcasses are
seen floating In Behring sea and the
Arctic ocean. Walrus flesh is the
Indians, and their wanton destruction
threatous starvation to thorn. The law
relating to fur-bearing animals does
not not apply to walrus, but Assistant
Secretary of the Treasury Spaulding
has issued instructions to Collector of
Customs Houstis, ut this port, to urge;
masters of vessels visiting Alaska
waters to prevent the killiug of walrus
by persons on board of their vessels.
These instructions are issued with a

goods is jnst opening up, and it is
noted that a heavy shipping movement
on orders is now proceeding at the
West. Somo gain in wool sales' is
noted at Eastern markets, but weather
condltoni have not been favorable as a
whole, except in stimulating tho retail
trade in sham and rubber goods. A
special featuro is the generally good
