A. legislative commission yesterday paid
a visit to the syndicate school at Mount
Joy. Representative KaufTman finds con
siderable room there for improvement, and
ii not averse to saving so. A scarcity of
towels and overcrowding is held to be re
sponsible for sore eyes and cntaneons affec
tions. The other syndicate schools are yet
to be investigated.
Mount Jot, July 5. The syndicate
soldiers orphans' school here was taken
completely by surprise this afternoon. The
commission appointed in pursuance of the
notion of the Legislature started out on an
investigating tour this morning and
swooped down upon the institution just as
the officials were about to take dinner.
Formalities were at once dispensed with
and the management postponed its meals.
The commission ransacked the place from
top to bottom.
Representative C. C. Kauffman, of Lap
caster, gave his impressions of the visit in
these words: "The occasion for my particular
activity in pursuing the investigation in
this school is the tact that it being in my
representative district, I was especially de
sirons of showing that it is not the intention
that this investigation shall be
A -WHITEWASnETG INQUIBT.
"The purpose of this inspection'is to get
down to the exact condition of all the
schools. While we are desirous of having
a school in our section, we do not want the
the present one to be continued if it does
sot compare favorably with the others. I
don't know in what condition the others
are: whether they are better or worse. Our
visit to-day shows there is room lor much
improvement here. The building is great
ly in need of repairs, the ventilation is
poor ana in some of the dor
mitories shonld be attended to at
once. The health of some of the children is
imperiled thereby. They .need more run
ning water. This could be cheaply reme
died. It is a wonder that there is not more
sickness. The outhouses are outrageously
small considering the number of children,
and until more improved methods can be
introduced, disinfectants should be liberally
used. Another tource of danger is the in
adequate conveniences in the boys wash
room. Think of it, only half a dozen towels
for IPO boys and lour hair brushes. The
talk of a tooth brush being provided for
each boy is a farce. Scarcely any of them
have their own tooth brushes. The girls
fare better in this particular.
A SOLEMN MTSTEET.
"It is a mystery to me how anybody could
hope to keep a lot of boys in good health
with them tumbling in two in a bed with
out any night shirts, all wearing the calico
shirts worn durine the day. To this and
the neglect to provide towels we must
largely attribute the fact that so many of
the boys have been tronbled with sore eyes.
The commission should at once adopt a rule
requiring separate towels to be provided lor
etch of the children.
"It is due to the management of the
school to say that the girls' department
makes a better showing; that they are gen
erally a bright lot of children: that the food
was tair, and that the girls clothing, as tar
as we could judge from a hasty examina
tion, was in pretty good condition. The
commission found much that will demand
serious attention in the work of reforming
the institution if it shall be decided to con
tinue this instead of others. Of course we
must see them all before we can determine

Atlanta, Jnly 5. Jailer Birdsong, of
Macon, and the fine put upon him by Judge
Speer for putting a chain around the neck
of an unruly negro, are becoming famous.
The whole matter will be brought up
again by a bill which Senator Bartlett
and Representative Hardeman introduced
simultaneously to-day. The bill is for the
purpose of repealing the present law.
which compels jailers to receive United
States prisoners in their jails, and giving to
sheriffs and jailers the right to reject any
and all United States prisoners. In other
words, the jailers are to be given the right
to accept or reject such prisoners. The bill
is for the protection of jailers.
Senator Bartlett said to-day that in his
opinion Judge Speer had overstepped his
authority when he fined Jailer Birdsong for
tying the negro counterfeiter to the
wall. It is against a repetition of such
arbitrary conduct on the part of
United States Judges that the
bill has been introduced. Representative
Hardeman was of the same opinion. He
thought the present law was a hard
ship to the jailer, as it forces him to
take all United States prisoners offered and
puts him in the power of the United States
for trying to keep order in the jail. As to
the facts in the case Messrs. Hardeman and
Bartlett are agreed that Birdsong's conduct
was not cruel. It was impossible
to keep tbe negro quiet. He was noisy and
insubordinate. The jailer, Mo keep him
quiet, put a light chain around his neck
and chained him to the wall. The effect
was to keep him from sitting down. It is
quite probable that the fine and the little
incident in the cell will be famous soon.

-much ado last night and to-day, has been re

hours. Notwithstanding the reports that he
bore the 'striking resemblance to Patrick
Cooney, "The Fox," it turns out that
the ex-prisoner is a Frenchman named
Frank Tremble Frank separated from
his wife not long ago, and has
been resorting to various outlandish
expedients to conceal his whereabouts. In
his cups he talked about Dr. Cronin in a
way that, coupled with other matters, led
to a suspicion that the young Frenchman
was in some manner connected with the
great Clan-na-Gael conspiracy.

New Orleans, July 6. The arrival of
Sullivan and the enthusiasm exhibited by
his friends in this city, has in no wise
dampened the ardor of tbe friends of Kil
rain, and instead of detracting from their
number, Sullivan's arrival appears to have
increased them. It is a noticeable fact that
while the center portion of the city is dis
posed to side with Sullivan, the upper sec
tions of the city are largely in favor of Kil
rain. A visit was paid to the rooms of the
Southern Athletic Club to-day, and quite a
number ot the members were lound, all of
whom expressed themselves as confident of
Kilrain' success in the forthcoming battle.
McHals, who is matched to fight Duffy on
Sunday next, was seen at the gymnasium.
He said that in his opinionJCilrain would
be thejrinner, although he had seen neither
ot the men. He based, his opinion
on the newspaper accounts' of the two
men, which, if true, and he had every
reason to believe they were so would make
Kilrainasure winner. He said lurther,
that as regarded the odds offered in the bets
which had been made, that it was natural
that Sullivan should be the favorite. No
one would bet even on a horse with a record
'of 2,40 against one with a record of 220,
though the latter might be out ot training
and the other had developed greater speed
than his previous record.
Willing to Take Odds.
A prominent member of the club, who is
somewhat of an authority in pugilistic af
fairs, said that Sullivan was not in the trim
he expected him to be, and 'that it was a
well-known fact that he could stand but
little if any punishment'about the heart or
stomach. He would not, of. course, like to
bet even on the result, though he felt sure
that Kilrain wonld come off the victor, but
he thought 100 to 80 fair odds on Sullivan,
and wonld not hesitate to take such odds
when the proper time came.
Others members of the club, in support of
their opinion, said that .men like Arthur
Chamber and Dominick McCaffrey, all of
whom knew both men well, would not be
found on the side of Kilrain if they did not
know what they were doing. Both Madden
and Chambers were with Sullivan in his
fight with Rvan, and McCaffrey fought six
rounds with liim when he was supposed to
b in his best days, and
they surely do not underrate
Sullivan. According to reports received,
Sullivan has not near tbe wind Kilrain has,
and he is besides entirely too heavy about
Preparing; for Kllraln'n Reception.
Prof. Dennis Butler, also a firm friend of
the Baltimore boy, last evening received a
telegram from Kilrain, saying he wonld be
in the city at about 11 o'clock to-morrow
forenoon. His triend is confident of win
Ding the fight, he said, and he had all faith
in his prowess.
The train on which Kilrain arrives will
be met outside of the city, as was the Sulli
van train; and Kilrain, Mitchell, Donovan
and Murphy will be conducted to carriages
and conveyed to their quarters at the South
ern Athletic Club, corner of Washington
and Prytania streets.
The rooms which have been set apart lor
Kilrain and his seconds are very cool and
pleasant, and are situated in a handsome
two-story frame dwelling adjoining to and
owned by the club. They are gallery rooms,
hav! a southern exposure, and are elegantly
fitted up with victoria bedroom sets trimmed
with blue Bilk.
The gymnasium is fitted up with all the
apparatus lor the development of the chest,
arms and legs, and has a course for
pedestrian exercises, as? well as fine
swimming, shower and tub baths.
Kilrain and his seconds will be able to
enjoy greater seclusion than do Sullivan
and his trainers, as they will not have to go
out into the street at all to gotoandfrom the
gymnasium. Kilrain will remain in his
quarters until he leaves for the scene of the
battle on Monday next Tbe interest in the
fight is unabated, and as an evidence of
this, the Western Union Telegraph Com

Ills Friends Very Confident.
fBT ASSOCIATED PRESS.:
New Ubleans, July 6. John L. Sul
livan and his immediate retinue are com
fortably established at a private boarding
house, No. 29 North Rampart street, oppo
site the rooms of the gymnastic club, where
the redoubtable fighter takes his daily work.
The house is besieged from morning till
night by a crowd of curious men and boys,
who patiently wait for hours for the bare
possibility of catching a glimpse of the
world-renowned pugilist, who is as difficult
of access as the Czar of Russia and receives
absolutely no visitors.
The faithful Muldoon, whose skillful and
patient training has brought him to his
present state of physical perfection, never
leaves him for an instant, and allows no one
but Mike Cleary, his devoted assistant
trainer, and Dan Murphy, a Boston friend,
to converse with him except in his pres
ence. Sullivan now weighs 202 pounds,
and the severe training he underwent be
fore he arrived here has been abandoned,
although he will take more exercise than an
ordinary man could endure without com
This morning he rose at 7 o'clock, and
after a sponge bath and a good rubbing,
breakfasted on broiled chicken, oatmeal tea
and stale bread. At 10 o'clock, accompa
nied by Muldoon and Cleary, be walked
across the way to the rooms ot the Gymnas
tic Club and spent hours there in exercise
that caused the perspiration to drip from
him as if he had just stepped out of a bath.
Some Very Lively Work.
No one was admitted to see his work but
half do-en friends, who accompanied him
from New York. In his dressing room Sulli
van stripped to his heels. Then he got into
a pair of green trunks held in position br a
belt fastened tight A pair of shoes and
heavy grey woolen socks was his only other
apparel. Muldoon and Cleary wore tights.
Then the pioceedings began. A football
filled with flour or meal, and weighing 26
pounds, was tossed from Sullivan to Mul
doon and then back again, a distance of 25
Tbe pet of Boston delivered and received
this heavy ball for 40 minutes without be
traying any signs or weakness. Neither
Muldoon nor Cleary could stand the test of
endurance, so they alternated, talcing ten
minutes of the work each, while Sullivan
finished fresh as a daisy after his long
stand against both of them.- Those who
saw Sullivan burl that ball with one -hand
with the velocity and force that made Mul
doon stagger as be received it, were re
minded of the John L. Sullivan of old,
whose blows struck men with the force of a
After two minutes' rest, Sullivan began
skipping the rope. To those who can only
see him in fancy there is doubtless some
thing ludicrous in the idea of a man of Sul
livan's massive frame Indulging in such
school girl pastime, but to an actual eye
witness there is no suggestion of absurdity
in the spectacle. He skips one loot at a
time, and he does it with the grace and airi
ness of a ballet girl.
Something of a Skipper
He skipped a thousand times without
stopping and was not audibly or visibly
puffing when he got through. "That ought
to settle tbe question of weakness in the
legs," suggested a bystander, and so, in
deed, it wonld seem. Sullivan is reported
to be the only man who ever accomplished
the feat Tbe nearest approach to it is 660
skips by a man weighing 140 pounds.
Sullivan perspired so profnsedly during
this exercise that the water fell from him in
big drops on either side and left a parallel
track of moisture throughout the length of
the 26-foot distance traveled by him in
making the skips. Then after a minute's
interval came dumb bell exercise, consist
ing of three movements upward as far as
the arm would reach, then downward until
the dumb bells touched the floor; then back
ward through the legs as far as the arm
This was repeated 60 times, causing Cleary
and Muldoon to pant and blow, while Sul
livan scarcely breathed bard. A little ball
punching followed. The force and celerity
of the blows amazed all who witnessed
tbem. They demonstrated two things con
clusively first, that Sullivan can hit as
hard as ever, and, second, that he has lost
none of his old-time lightning rapidity.
Once he hit the ball so hard as to break the
thin rope by which it was suspended; a sec
ond time he split the tether. If be can get
in a conple of those terrific right-handers
on Kilrain's head the fight will be pretty
Sullivan In Perfect Condition.
The ball punching terminated the morn
ing's work. While the '.'big fellow," as he
is familiarly called, was dressing for dinner,
the reporter had an opportunity to inspect
him critically. He la in the pink of condi
tion, better than ever before in his life. He
measures 42 inches around the chest, and is
as deep through from breast to back as he is
from side to side. There does not appear to
bean ounce of superfluous flesh on him.
His flesh glows with the color of health
and his back is covered with prickly heat,
which causes him, however, no inconveni
ence. His legs from the waist to the knee
are the perfection ot symmetry. Below the
knee ther are not as perfect His calves
are not developed in proportion to tbe upper
half of the leg. Experts say, however, that
his skipping exercises prove him to be very
firm on his pins. His muscles are hard and
firm, and his biceps measure 16 inches.
Altogether, his friends are jubilant over his
condition and predict an easy victory.
Joe Coburn says there is no doubt what
ever that Sullivan will win; that he has
seen him in all his fights, but never in as
perfect condition as now. Barney McGuire,
of New York, savs he has had an experience
of 30 years in witnessing fights, and never
saw as perfect a man as Sullivan now is to
enter the ring.
Not a Tery Lone Battle.
He thinks that if Kilrain will stand up
and fight it will be over in 16 minutes. Mr.
Larell, of the Sullivan party from New
York, don't think the fight will last over
five rounds, and that Sullivan will be the
victor. These opinions prevail largely here
now, where Kilrain has not recently been
seen. The betting is all the one way, 10 to
7 on Sullivan. When Kilrain and his
crowd arrive, however, there may be a
At 1 o'clock Sullivan dined in company
with Muldoon and Dan Murphy. The bill
of fare was chicken broth, stewed chicken,
rice and watermelon. This was washed
down with a glass of ale. At 4 o'clock the
party again proceeded to the clubrooms,
where the exercises of the morning were
repeated with this difference that the rope
was only skipped 645 times. To-morrow
-will be the last day of active training. Sun
day will be devoted to absolute rest

. That He Drank Too Much Beer.
Cincinnati, July 5. Kilrain and his
party left this morning on the regular train
for New Orleans on the Queen and Crescent
route. A goodly party assembled at the
passenger station to see them off.
Kilrain arrived early, and was very
animated in his talk concerning
the report printed in a morning paper that
he had yesterday indulged in nine or ten
rounds of beer with his party at a saloon,
and never decreased the size of his glass.
He said it was a mean lie, intended to in

He declared that he was in excellent con
dition; that he had not been fairly treated
in this Sullivan town, but that
they would all hurrah for him

enied the drinking story, except that on
the assurance of Dr. Walnrjght that it
would do him good, Kiliain did drink one

The party was somewhat tronbled this
morning by the appearance in the car of
John T. Morris, a somewhat well-known
Ohio detective. The notion seized tbem
that he was going to ride with them to
Mississippi, and there make an ar
rest in the hope of getting
a reward. They questioned him, and
found him pretending ignorance of the Kil

only going to Lexington to arrest a man.

moved out, and a faint response came from

Beading, July 5. A desperate battle
with tramps, in which two Beading Bail
road special officers were shot, took place
near Monocacy station, five miles below
Beading, this" afternoon. The officers,
received information that a large number
of tramps were on a coal train which left
Beading abont 5 o'clock. They immedi
ately took a passenger train in order to in
tercept the illegal car riders, and jumped
offnear Mcnocaoy station.
The coal train stopped nearby, and the
officers ran along to where they knew the
tramps were. When the latter saw the
officers they fled to the wood, only two of
them maintaining a stand. Officer Wart
man made for one of them, when the
tramp yelled to the officer to throw
up his hands, and the officer refused to do
so. The tramp fired two shots at him, one
of them striking him in the leg. The officer
fell to the ground, unable to render Officer
Kaucher any- assistance. The latter was
engaged in a hand-to-hand struggle with a
powerfully built tramp, and in the melee
was shot in the head.
He was set upon by his assailant and
beaten almost into insensibility. The
wounded officers were brought to Beading
to-night and Officer Kaucher's nearest
friends were barely able to recognize him.
He is injured internally and his head
is one mass of cuts, bruises and
gashes, and his face terribly disfigured.
The two tramps escaped and have not yet
been captured. Their descriptions have
been telegraphed to all nearby points.
Officer Wartman will probably lose his leg,

New York, July 5. The dingy offices
of Alfred Carr & Co., in Pine street, were
empty to-day of even the sturdy little office

on whose complaint Judge O'Brien issued
the attachment, also proposes to make it hot
for Mr. George D. Bancroft, the broker of
the Consolidated Stock and Petroleum Ex
change, who was supposed to execute Mr.
In a letter to President Wilson, of the
Exchange, sent to-dav by Leopold Wnllacb,
Mr. Yates' lawyer, an investigation of Mr.
Bancrolt's proceedings was asked for. Mr.
Yates charged Mr. Bancroft with a peculiar
transaction whereby be (Yates) is out, lie
says, $1,500. He says that he ordered Mr.
Carr to buy for him 400 shares of National
Lead Trust The fluctuations in the stock
at the time were rapid, and Mr. Yates
says he got a note from Mr. Carr to Mr.
Bancroft, with instructions that Mr. Ban
croft was to obey his (Mr. Yates')order con
cerning the disposition of the 400 shares.
Mr. Yates says thst Mr. Bancroft told him
he had bought the 400 shares ordered. One
day not long ago Mr. Yates wasatthe rail in
the Exchange and Lead Trust was scaoting
around like sixty. It showed Yates a profit
of fl,600 on the 400 shares, and he says he
ordered Mr. Bancroft to sell. He adds that
Bancroft did sell, but has never turned over
the money to him. He holds that he and
Mr. Bancroft were dealing directly with

The Man With the Most Totes Does Sot Get tie Best
The Constitutional Conventions of the
fonr new States are getting down to work in
a very lively manner. With the exception
of Montana, the Republicans have been
successful in securing the organizations.
There is trouble in the party ranks in North
Dakota, however. A peculiar contest case
was decided in favor of the man who got
the least votes in Washington.
BlSMAECK, N. D., July 5. The Constitu
tional Convention convened at 10:45 this
morning. The report of the Committee on
Credentials was read and a short recess was
taken to secure some correction in the re
port, which was then adopted. The election
of a permanent chairman was the next busi
ness. Campbell, of Stutsman, presented the
name of F. B. Fancher, the Republican
caucus, nominee, and it was seconded. W.
E. Pnrcell, of Wahpeton, presented the
name of John E. Carland, of Bismarck, as
the Democratic nominee. The oath was
taken by the delegates before further pro
ceedings. Fancher was elected on the first
ballot. Carland asked that the election be
made unanimous, and his motion prevailed.
Fancher made a litte speech., A. committee
of seven on rules was appointed and the
convention adjourned until 2 p.m. to-morrow.
A caucus of the Republican members will
be held to select tbe remaining perma
nent offices. It promises to be a lively affair,
as there are several candidates for each
place and sectional feeling is pretty certain
to be engendered. The Republican leaders
are anxious to prevent any 'ill feeling and
will use every effort to distribute the vari
ous plums in order to suit all sections and
PLENTY OF CANDIDATES.
Major Hamilton's friends think he has a
sure thing on the Secretaryship, but opposi
tion is likely to develop. D. B. Wellman,
ex-Territorial Representative, and Editor
Fred Falley, of the Wahpeton Globe, are in
the field to-day for Sergeant-at-Arms, and
tbe contest promises to be lively. At the
meeting of the Republican State Constitu
tional Committee to-night, it is probable
that August 1 will be the date fixed for
holding the State Convention. The
apportionment decided up tojast night's
meeting is satisfactory to all.
At Helena, Mont, the Constitutional
Convention met at 2 o'clock this afternoon.
After brief preliminaries, permanent organ
isation was effected, the following officers
and attaches being elected: Hon. W. A.
Clark, President; W. H. Todd, Chief
Clerk; C. H. Stanton, Enrolling Clerk;
Samuel Alexander, Sergeant at Arms; Rev.
H. E. Clews, Chanlain. Ail are Democrats.
Seventy-three of 75 members answered to
the roll call, divided as follows: 39 Demo
cratic, 32 Republican, 2 scattering. No
further action of importance was taken, and
the convention soon adjourned until to
morrow. IN SOUTH DAKOTA.
.At Sioux Falls, in the South Dakota
Convention, the Committee on Rules, J. L.
Jolly, Chairman, met this morning and
prepared its report on the number of com
mittees necessary and the number of dele
gates of which they shall consist. The Judi
ciary Committee will consist of 13 members,
the Executive of seven and the Legislative
of 25. There are about 50 otber committees,
to which will be offered all matters pertain
ing to the Constitution.
The committee recommended -a commis
sion of seven to go to Bismarck to divide the
Territories properly. The members of these
committees will probably be appointed by
President Edgerton. The work of the con
'vention will be largely done in committee.
The convention met at 2 o'clock this after
noon and ratified the nominations for offi
cers rsade by the Republican caucus last
night. The Committee on Rules had not

There was considerable objection in the
convention to a conference committee of
seven, as being too large, and the question
was made a special order tor to-morrow,
when the conference committee on the
bonndary line will also be appointed. It is
held that there are two distinct seventh
standard parallels and that it is necessary
to determine which to adopt in order to
avoid confusion. The Constitution of the
United States was unanimously adopted as
a part ot the State Constitution.
A CTTBJOJJS DECISION.
At Olimpia tbe Washington Constitu
tional Convention reconvened at 10 o'clock
this morning. After a long discussion the
report of the Committee on Credentials was
adopted. This seats Wallman, who isars a
certificate of election, though the returns in
the Secretary's office show that he received
ten less votes than Travis, his opponent.
This fact was not discovered until very re
cently. Travis is not aware of it yet, and is
not here to enter a contest. It was agreed
that on his appearance his case would be
heard by tbe convention. The oath of office
was administered to the delegates by Chief

VroC Clayes Telia Haw the Spider Makes
Tbe Swiss Cross. ,
Eacb individual spider is endowed with a
spinneret, or natural spinning machine,
through which can be drawn innumerable
strands, so fine that they can be seen only
under a powerful microscope (Leeuwen
hoeck claims that it takes 4,000,000 of these
strands to make a thread as thick as a hair
from a man's head). First, our spider be
gins to draw from out her spinneret's cord
of as many of these strands as seem to her
good, and fastens it to some leaf or twig,
then runs on another leaf, spinning all the
while; fastens again to that; and to another
and another; continuing until a circle is
formed inclosing as large a space as she de
signs for the outer boundary of her web.
Then she passes back and forth over her
work, adding fresh threads, and strengthen
ing this outer line, which she secures to'
every possible object Finally she stops,
fastens her thread with special care, and be
gins to rnn around the circle, spinning as
she goes; but now carrying her fresh threads
carefully raised upon one hind foot thus
keeping' it from touching the older strands
and becoming glued to them. When half
way around she stops, pulls her thread
tight, fastens it very strongly, and a firm
line is drawn straight across the center of
the circle. She runs down this center line
to the middle, fastens another thread to it
there, carries It to a new point on the outer
edge, fastens it, and we now see that she
is engaged in making those lines in the
web that look so like the spokes of a wheel.
She repeats this operation again and
again, until all the radii or spokes are
formed. When they are done she carefully
tests each thread by pulling, to make sure
that it is firm and strong; and, if one proves
unsatisfactory, she either strengthens or
remakes it altogether. Now that the main
lines are built, our spider goes once more to
the center point, and begins to spin again
this time in circles fastening to each radi
us as she passes. At first these circles, or
more correctly spirals, are placed quite close
together, but she leaves ever a wider and
wider space between as she approaches the
outer edge. The outer circle and the radii
where spun of silk which becomes dry di
rectly after leaving the spider's body, is of
great strength and very firm; but these
spirals are formed of a substance which
When .first drawn from the spinneret it is
extremely glutinous a most important
property, as by this it is enabled to adhere
tenaciously to the radii and it is, besides,
so highly elastic as to be capable of being
pulled far out of place without breaking.
When the spirals are finished, the spider
returns again to the center, and. proceeds to
bite off the points of all the radii close to
the first encircling line, by which she much
increases the elasticity of her web. It is in
or beneath this central opening that the
spider usually sits and watches forthe com
ing of her prey.
SNAKE TAI2N FE0M TEXAS.
A ZJttla Girl Charmed br a Battler The
H. P. Hidden, who resides southwest of
Dennison, Tex., brought to this city a few
days ago his little child Sallie, to be treated
for snake bite. About 6 o'clock in tbe
morning the girl left the house with a pail
to gather blackberries near Stone Spring.
She was absent a long time, and when Mrs.
Hedden went in search of her she found
the child seated on a rock and in her lap
was a large rattlesnake. The snake's head
was slightly raised and moving to and fro.
Sometimes it wonld almost touch the lips of
the child, who pushed it away without ap
pearing to anger the snake. The child was
so completely under tne spell of the ser
pent tnat- it paid no attention to the
mother, who screamed so loudly that her
husband heard her a quarter of a mile dis
tant and hurried to the scene. When Hed
den appeared the snake placed itself in an
attitude of battle and the air vibrated with
the noise of the rattles. Hedden advanced
upon the snake, the child fell back as in a
swoon, and the snake struck it on the
thumb of the right hand and then sprang
at Hedden, who killed it with a stone.
Hedden sucked the wound, which he is con
fident saved the lire of his little girL Sal
eratus was also applied to the wound. The
hand and arm of the little girl were only
slightly swollen when she was brought to
this city for treatment The child says she
was sitting on the rock picking berries,
when the snake appeared, and that she was
unable to move when she looked at it; that
she was not afraid of it, and when it waved
its head to and fro before her face sne felt
like going to sleep. J

General Traffic Manager of the Union

He quoted from Canadian Pacific figures to

was due to too large differentials allowed

profitable rates, but the result showed that

If differentials' were done away with, the
Canadian Pacific would come in as a free

no road could do business at a

also had the advantage, from the fact that
it did not have to scale through rates ac
cording to local rates, as American roads
did. A number of other railroad officials
