KEPT BLOODY OATH.
Maro Bandit. Jiklri, Had Sworn -to
. - - Kill IOO Men.
Manila, July . When JiklrL the
Mora bandit chief who was killed with
all his followers in a desperate battle
with troops and constabulary near Pn-
tian, on Jolo Island, July 6, began bis
career as an outlaw, be swore he would
kill 100 men before he died.
The record of the murders he-committed
is not complete, but it stated
in a dispatch received today from Zam
boanga that the bandit probably made
good his oath, as the partial record at
hand shows be took the lives of nearly
a hundred persons.
From the latest reports of the fight,
all but one of the several women in the
cave where the outlaws made their last
stand were wives of JikirL
But one of the women escaped. , She
was the wife of one of the Jikirt fol
lowers and accepted the safe conduct
offered by the Americans before the
assault on the cave began.
Lieutenant Joseph A. Beer, of tbe
Sixth cavalry, is agreed by all who saw
the fight to have been the hero of the
battle. He was armed with a Win
chester DumDcrun with which be did
great execution. His timely rescue of
Lieutenant Arthur H. Wilson, who was
struggling with Jikirl and already des
perately wounded, when Beer shot and
killed the bandit, and bis certain aim,
which brought down three other out
laws, are the talk of army circles.

"We therefore recommend If neces

ment of measures providing a Just and
equitable tax upon all eitisens. As an

Constantinople, July SO. The report
of the courtmartial on the Adana mas
sacres, made public today, Is a strong
denunciation of tha incapacity and
apathy of the police and ether local eu
thorties. It says:
"Fifteen pereona already have been
banged; 800 deserve death; 16,000 de
serve hard labor for life; 80,000 de
serve minor sentences.
'If It is decided to proceed with the
punishment, we will cordon the town
and deal expeditiously with the mat
ter." In view, however, of the general
reconciliation between the opposing
elements, the report recommends that
general amnesty he made the occasion
of a national fete.

Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, July 16. Reg
istration for lands in the Coeur d'Alene
Indian reservation commenced In tbe
city at 18 o'clock last night and will
con elude at midnight on August 6. A
heavy registration at least 100,000
people Is sxpeeted, and the notarise
are ready to do their share of the labor
connected with tbe opening.
Many of them were already central
ly located and are in their old offices,
but others have constructed temporary
buildinge id tbe business section.- A
charge of 26 cents will be msde for re
ceiving applications, but there is noth
ing to prevent a notary from acting as
agent for applicants, in which esse ha
will notify has clients as to their suc
cess in the drawing and receive a com
pensation for it.
All the hotels snd lodging bouses
have prepared for the rush, and every
available room will be used. Some of
tbe hotels have rented buildings and
equipped them with beds snd' many In
dividuals have secured buildings and
equipped tbm for sleeping purposes.
Yet with all of these aeaxnmodations
It is feared tbe large crowd will not be
amply provided for.
James W. Witton, superintendent in
charge of the opening of tbe reserves,
estimates that 100,000 men and women
will file for lands, many applying for
all three reservationa, making a grand
total of probably 800,000 applications.
From 16,000 to 20.000 spplicationa
from veteran soldiers and sailors are
expected. A single notary already haa
210 veterans listed for filings.
Some of tbe homesteads to be drawn
August 9 are valued at fl 6, 000 to 120,
000. It is believed about one applicant
in 16 will be able to aecora a homestead
worth taking up.
Miss Harriet Post, daughter of At
torney P. T. Post, of Spokane; Miss
Helen Hamilton, of Coeur d'Alene,
daughter of Genera Ortis Hamilton,
and Miss Christina Donian. daughter of
Judge Donian, of Missoula, have been
chosen to draw all tbe numbers for ap
plicants for lands in tbs Coeur d'Alene,
Spokane and Flathead reservationa re
spectively. On August 9 these girls, who are
about 12 years old, will be blindfolded
and placed beside the hugh piles of
probably 2u0,000 envelopes containing
applications for lands. These they will
draw at random, homeaaskers being
given their choice of lands in tbe order
in which the names are drawn.
There Is little evidence of a rush to
file spplicationa in Spokane for tbe
Spokane reservation, but there will be
a crash on the trains to Coeur d'Alene,
86 miles distant.
