THE MESSAGE A FORGERY.
Dispatch to Spragge Was Sent by Some One
Enabled to Tamper With the Wires.
Loudon, Jan. 2. Since his arrival
in Loudon, Major-tteneral Hir Henry
Uolville has received information
tending to show that Lieutenant
Colonel Spragga actually received a
forged telegram purporting to be signed
by General Colviile, dated Lmdley,
Slay 23, saying:
"I am badly in want of mounted
troops. Come here at once."
The telegram was sent off three days
before General Colviile reached Lind
ley, and was the cause of Lieutenant-
Colonel Spragge hastening there. One
of the principal charges against Gene
ral Colviile is that, after appealing to
the Yeomanry for help, he abandoned
them to their fate. '
"I never heard of this telegram,"
said General Colviile, "until now.
But it explains the mystery of mv
alleged message to Colonel Spragge.
It was known at the time that some
one was tampering with the wires near

THE MARQUETTE STATUE.
It Is Now Discovered Not to Be a Likeness of
the Famous Pioneer Explorer.
New Ycrk, Jan. 2. According to
the Washington correspondent of the
lleiald, the statue of Pere Slarquette,
in the statuary hall in the capitol,
about which there was almost a telig
ious war a few years ago, turns out
not to be the statue of Pere Slarquette
at all. The statue was presented to
the nation by the state of Wisconsin.
Objections were raised to its installa
tion in the capitol by persons of other
than Catholic denomination, and for
many months the authorities hesitated
as to what they should do. They fin
ally gave Pere Slarquette a place ith ,
other prominent men..
A discovery has now been made of
an oil painting of Slarquette in Slon
treal, which indicates that the statue
is as far from being an accurate repro
sentatiou of the famous priest as day
is from night. The painting in Slou
treal, it is said, is undoubtedly authen
tic, and was so covered with dest that
no outline of the portrait conld ba
had uutil it had undergone a careful
cleaning. It is believed that this
painting is the only likeness of Slar
quette in existence, and the face in
oil is not the face of the Slarquette
in marble at tbe capitol.
A CONGRESS OF IDEAS.
That Is What the Pan-American Exposition
What a veritable mine of valuable
information the Pan-American Exposi-;
tion will be for business and profession
al people, mechanics, agiiculturists,
and in fact all who are engaged in the
various vocations in life, besides afford
ing them the rarest entertainment im
aginable. From this wonderful exposi
tion of the achievements of the West
ern hemisphere during the nineteenth
centuiy, they will return to their
homes and pursuits better equipped
for their work. Those who would not
avail themselves of the benefits to be
derived from this unprecedented con-.
gress of ideas would find themselves
outstripped by others who had wisely
accepted the golden opportunity to fa
miliarize themselves tvith what has
made so much jor progress. No one
with a progressive turn of mind can
afford to remain away from an exposi
tion which will be 60 rich in its educa
tional aspects and lasting in its pleas
ant impressions as the Pan-American.
