Such occurrence as the murder ol

Governor User bas declined to extend
any clemsnoy to the Portland murder

ported that nation might be panlened
as It was Wade that fired the fatal shot
and It was Del ton's confession that led
to tb arrest of both murderers. This
belief however, seems not to have teen
well founded. In this regard tb gov
ernor says: "When two men start out
with guns and a purpose to commit rob
bery ,thy gree with themselves, before
starting, to murder, If Decenary, In or
der to say their own lives. That Is
what the guns are for. If the rule is
established that tb Uovernor will com'

such eases, then it will be an, Incentive
to such as ars planning robbsrles to pro
ceed, with the renewed hope that if
murder does accidentally result from the
advsnture, tbe one who can get to tbe
District Attorney' office first will be
saved from the gallows. This would be
a loophole throuub which a gleam of
hone, and tbsrslor of encouragement,
would shin to strengthen those who
might be faltering through lack of the
necessary courage. This loophole should
be closed, It might mak it somewhat
bardsr for tbe detectives, but this can
be endured, If it should tend to lessen
the number of victims of this otterly
worthless class of eur people uot only
worthless, but dangerous."
Admiral Hcbley is a man whs possesses

be pardoned lor anting uiiierwlse, still
cantluues to be a man who is content to
let bis reputation rest on deeds, not
words. No official criticism can mar
the glory ol Hchley's achievements and
be will be remembered long alter Nsnip

mar bis reputation is to talk aud be
seems to hsve the sound sense to
refrain from the verbosity which has
brought to grief more than ous bsro ol
the Kpauisb American war. Hchley's
Journey to Chicago was a continual
triumph. He could not b honored

Indeed It is as com uodor railier thsu

tbe same is true of lewey. Their fame

Already the people bave forgotten tbeu

he first and took a donation claim in
the center of tbe valley, tbe fsrra which
it now owned by J. W. Harmon. Mr.
and Mrs. Uess bsd lived here seversl
years when ths Indiana became trouble
some and Mr., Gess was appointed
leader to guard sgainat the cunning
tribe. At one time the whites nurrbered
but 15 to guard against the treacherous
fellows. For two years the people had
been guarded so close that provisions
were getting low and for a while the
people tel to live as tbe Indians.
Under the direction of Mr. (jess the
Indians were driven back and the
people resumed the work in their fields
once more, but the trescberous trite
took advantage of tbe opportunity and
watched the men who did not know of
the danger which was near them and
the second day Mr. Gees had been plow
ing the Indians succeeded in finding his
gun, aud killed him witb it. Now the
Indins had killed tbe leader, they
thought they would hsve things their
own way, but another came to tbe front
as leader for the whites by the name of
Mr. Potter, wbo proved a suitable leader
and under his command ths people so
greatly defeated the Indians that there
was no more trouble at this time and
later Mr. Potter married the widow of
the one whom the Indians bsd killed.

IT HAD fairly poured for two days,
and I had waded through all the
newspaper and other reading mat
ter to be had at the little Adirondack
hotel at which I was staying.
The. landlord, Mr. Carpenter, was a
jolly old fellow who waa noted for
hi sprightly stories, and he did his
best to entertain his guest and keep
up their spirit aa they sat on the
broad piazza of the Wayside house and
watched the steady downpour.
I did not join the group on the
veranda. If there ia anything I par
ticularly dislike It is to listen to the
chatter of a lot of people who are
trying to delude themselves into the
belief that they are enjoying life
when the face of Nature is ankle
deep with mud and water, and it ia
still raining as If it never intended to
stop. So I stuck to my room and

Now, if ever, was the time for
story-telling, but the landlord's reper
tory seemed to be about exhausted.
"No use asking for any more funny
itoriea," he drawled out with a depre
catory shake, of the head. "These
two wet days have pumped me dry,
so to speak. I con only think of one
more story, but as there Isn't any
thing comical about that one, I don't
suppose you'll care to hear it."
"tiive us a story, by ull means,"
urged one of the ladies. "I can 0,1
wnys sleep better if I have a ghoat
story or aome exciting adventure to
go to bed on."
"Well," began the landlord, re
flectively, "1 don't think this comes

sven a atory of adventure. I'll hnve
to tell it, ami let you classify it for
yourselves. The climax of my story
Mine ten years ago when I was keep
ng a hotel in my native village,
which I will call Eden Center; hut the
beginning dated buck ninny years be
fore that, to the tiuie when the Peeks
were the iihIkiIh of the place.
"Squire Peek, with his wife and
only daughter, lived in a big white
house on a hill In the outskirts of the
village, 11 nil u haughty, high-stepping
old chop he was when I first knew
him. He always seemed to consider
himself and his family a little above
the rest of the folks in Eden Center,
end when Lucinila Peek grew up, al
though she was by long odds the best
looking young lady in the place, and
while the young fellow were all
half daft over her, none of them real
ly had the courage to make love to
her for fear of arousing the wrath of
the stiff-necked old squire.
"The first one who tried It was an
outsider, and the ruthlees way in
which his aspiration were nipped in
the bud by I.ucinda's fnther held
forth very little encouragement to
the others. He was a young college
student, named Henry 'Uandcll, who
lad come to Eden Center to spend his
lurnuier vacation In erning some
needed money. Though dependent
wholly on hia own earnings, he was
bravely working hit way through
college, it seems, and he got a job
keeping the books and milking up ac
counts at the village store daytimes,
and at night he gave lesson ou the
violin and other musical instrument..
He was a first-class singer, too, and
soon after coming to the place he
started a singing school, hiring the
schoolhouse and churglng a regular
fee for the lessona, which he gave
every Thursday evening.
"It was at the singing school that
he made the acquaintance of I.ucindn
Peek, and it was a clear case of love

fellow, and when the rest of the hoys
