principles In defense of his action, say
ing: "It has been accepted as true, since
the establishment of our system of 0 v

Of his personal relations to the cits

He concludes modestly by siying:
"I leave this Issue of this canvass to

Thus it goes, the most bitter twsonal

London, Oct. 7. The dispatch re
ceived from the Count of Paris, saving
that he had been warmly received In
America, docs not agree with other dis
patches published In Paris to the effect
that the public authorities of the
L'ntieci Mates have carefully avoided
giving the Prince anything Ilko oitt
clal recognition, and that the President
has found a pretext for not staying at
Washington to receive the pretender
to the throne of France.

Kansas City. Mo., Oct. 7. An out
rageous and almost fatal practical joke
upon William Sumner, a young man,
from Victor. Mitchell County, Kan.,
has juU been biought to light In this
city, whither the father of the young
man has just brought him to see If he
cannot he cured of the Insanity caused
by the Joke. After reputedly written
warnings from anonymous While Caps
of bis neighborhood, that young Sum
ner bad betler
ceask ma visits an a r.ovurt
to the homo of Mlts Lillian Gregg, he
was cauaht one night recently by the
make-believe White Caps. Just after he
had left the home of bis worthy sweet
heart. The practical Jokers, all In white
caps, soon surrounded and took posses
sion of blm, bound and blindfolded
him, placed him back upon tils horse,
hitched a noose about bis neck, threw
the upper end of the line over tbe limb
of a tree, ordered the victim to stand
up In his saddle and started his hone
off sicld the promiscuous
FIHIJIti or I'tSTOtS.
The place selected by the Jokers was a
deep cut, ami when William stood up
his feet were just on the level with tbe
ground. Tbe rope wus so arranged
that when the hore walked from under
blm he would swing to tbe side of tbe
uanK ami be teit stamllng on tbe trround.
All went as prepared nutll the" young
man's feet touched tbe ground, but in
stead of his standing on bis feet, bis
knees bent under blm, ami he was
ALMOAT KILLED
before they could extricate blm. As
soon as they realized bis situation they
placed him on his horse and took him
borne, where tbty left him, ami bis
father found him a little after midnight
tying uneoascious upon iue ground,
with an ugly mark or ring around his
neck. The son could oaly be arous i

THIS WHOLE VUUiWtWVl fABC
had been made to seem as real to him
as if tbe White Caps were ia earnest
and then relapsed into an hitoey or
insanity from wbk-h he will probably
not recover. The eider Mr. Sumner
says he will leave his son la the care of
tbe best phyaklaas, ami then return
with good detectives ami ferret oat the
perpetrators of the deed ami prosecute
them to the full extent of the law.

ssys advices lecelved here say the
Guatemalans and Sdvadorlans are

war has again been precipitated, owing
to the Inaballty of the Guatemalan
Government to exchange prisoners with
Salvador. The first-named government

No particulars as to tbe locality
where tbe Aght has taken place are re

the conflict eptlet are being made by
Guatemala.
Iktllias has not heeu satisfied with
tbe peace treaty brought about by the
Diplomatic Corps, ami It has been it
generally accepted opinion that a sew
war would break out at the close of the
ceffee-gatbering season, but no one was
prepared for so early an opening of hos
tilities. Guatemala's finances are at present
ia a very bail condition, but It is un
derstood that a part of tbe cotton loan
will soon be delivered. She ateo lacks
generals to command her forces. In
every way Salvador is In a better way to
sustain war than her larger enemy.
Kzeta has tbe full confidence of the
masses, and tbe o trice rs of ber army are
superior to those of Guatemala. It is
stated that Salvador has plenty of
money and can get almost any amount
she wants.
Some ef the articles of the peace treaty
have been considered by Salvador as
not favorable to her dignity, ami tbe
Sal vadorians are preparedto aght again,
but more earnestly than ever.
