"Thcro Isn't a llvo wolverine in any zoo

fessor Hornady over nt tho Smithsonian
"The ferocity of theso animals is some
thing wonderful. A wolrcrlno will light n
buzz-saw. They aro not afraid ot anything
and are ono ot tho hardest animals to kill
that thcro Is. Fortho last two )oars I hnvo
been trying to got some specimens for a
stuffed group for tho National Museum and
I havo been unablo to do so. I havobecu
lu correspondence with hundreds of hunters
nil over tho country try lntr to get dead wol
verines to stuff and couldn't do It, so ) on
enn'sco that llv o ones nro not easily pro

"I, at ono time, had a standing offer of
$25 for tho skins ot a couple of old wolver
ines nnd their Utter of )oung ones, but they
aro such ugly beasts that hunters hcsltato a
long while to tacklo them. Tho Indians
call tho wolverines 'bad medicine,' andthoy
aro. Indians would rather meet a grizzly
bear any time than a wolverine. Thoynro
peculiarly an Amirlcan animal, and for
their slzo aro tha worst animals In America
when It comes to fighting. Thoy aro alwa) s
ready to fight, nnd ready to fight anything.
Their tempers aro so bad that they ara very
hard to keep In confinement, ovcu It they
could bo caught. I novcr sawn llvo one,
but I havo often heard old hunters talk
about them, and, from their dcscilptlons, I
wouldn't caro to meet one In the woods.

"A wolvcrlno would bo a great thing for
our 'Zoo' though, Just tho thing to start it
with. It would bo nice to start our 'Zoo'
with an animal that Isn't duplicated In any
zoo In tho country. Dut I doubt tho possi
bility ot Its being posstblo to get a llv o one.
As I told you, I havo been trying to get
soino dead ones for a group and havo not
succeeded yet, so I am afraid a llvo ono Is
out ot tho question. I havo written to
threo or four Iiundrcd hunters throughout
tho country for tho skins of dead wolver
ines and haven't got them. 1 bo w olvcrluc's
temper is so bad that It would bo dangerous
business to try to catch ono ultra and pretty
hard to keep him after you got him. Hut
ono would bo n gtcat card for our 'Zoo'
when v. o get It started.' ' ,

In Jils efforts to get dead ones to mount
Professor Hornaday had printed in tho
Portland Oregonian an appeal for wolver
ines that had uo effect so far as euppljlng
tho National Museum was concerned. Hut
soon after Professor IIornada)'s request
'was pruned, a) car or so ago, mo ureqoman
printed tho following article:
Mention wai mado In thvjo columns a shot t
tlmo since that tha Smithsonian Intltntl6n
wudiod to procure a. family ot wolverines to
havo mounted, for tho Museum thero. It was
alco stated that theso nnlmals word not very
plentiful In Oregon and tlia'T'they had u repu
tation llko that of tlio bad man from Hitter
Creek. Tho truthfulness of tboo statements
(cems verified by tho following from thu
Baker tltrAUtmoernt: "I,nst Monday Mr.

Iho stor) of Crockett's coon is familial
to nil hunters. It runs that when tho fa
mous hunter, Dav) Crockett, went hunting
for coons he novcr took any powder or
balls along. When his doj; "treed" a coou
the coon would look down from hU limb,
and, seeing that it was Davy Cro:kctt, not
knowing, of course, that he had no ammu

was a dead, euro shot, would climb down

Audubon, tho great naturllst, si)s nt tho
Wolverine, that its ferocity, according to
fomo accounts, Is greater than (hat of any
other animal that used to infest thu Ameri

wasasactloasthu vvoltis It would hive
killed off all tho other wild unlunls in
America long ago. Hut though a tcrrlbln
lighter and amph provided with claws aud

Unusual method Is to llo In ambush fur

When another atilmil passes along under

"What's tho matter here, anyhovvt"
asked Judge Miller.
Aud tho bailiff added, Imprefsivj'y, "f
vou pcsiplo haven't any respect for tho
Court volt ought to havo some for ) our

ing among soma of the colored members of
thu liar. Mr. Wall wanted Moss sent to
tail and Mr. Moss wanted Wall sent to Jail.
Tha survivor In cither caso would havo en
joyed tho honor of defending William
Chase, tha colored man, who sat with
an expression of annojanco on his face
waiting his turn ti) bo tries! on tho charge
of affray. Mr. Moss wan silting oirtho
tablo In front of the liar, swinging his Ices
and wearing a flcrco oxptcstlou, which
might hiv o stood either for flcrco deter
mination or for cramps.
"When tho caso was reached Mr, Mom and
Mr. Wall wcro both on their feet toaddrcsss
the Court, but .Mr. Moss got the first word
In and told what tho caso was.
"Now, Your Honor," said Mr. Wall, "ho
has had tils innings, and I want to call your
nttcntlon to the degree of li) storing (with
n v cry disagreeable emphasis) in this ease."
Ho then proceeded to state that the prison
er's friends had scut for Mr. Kicks and tho
prisoner himself had sent for Mr. Wall.
Taking ndvautago of Iho question which
aroso between them, Mr. Moss stopped In
and took possession of tho case.
It appears that thoro was but flvo dollars
among tho prisoner's relatives aud friends,
nnd this wns civ en to Mr. Kicks. As (soon
as tho trouble commenced in court Mr.
IllcJts arose nnd said: "Your Honor, this
man's friends paid mo five dollars, but as
soon as I found thcro was going to bo any
trouble about tt, I handed them back tbo
flvo dollars aud told them I didn't want tha
case." And Mr. Kicks sat down, Justly
congratulating himself ou his own pru
dence. Mr. Moss explained that ho had been re
tained by tho prisoner's people.
"It's all this court can do to try cases,"
said Judgo Miller, "without stopping to
find out who tho counsel is."
Crlcr Kendlg took a hand, saying that tu
justlco to Mr. Wall it was propor to state
that the defendant had sent for blm. Mr.
'Wall then withdrew his claim'.
Mr. Moss proceeded with tho Case, and
It took tha Court about halt a lnlnuto to
lino tho prisoner $5. As this Is tha exact
amount which Chaso's faintly possessed It
will go to swell tbo revenues of tho Gov

I'lti'rt or Ills Ilprenl Conferenro
Willi tho llcails or the I'urly of tho
Loniiov, April 8 Whnt llttlu attention
there Is paid hero to Boulangcr's flight
from France is directed to condemning the
cowardliness of his action. It is true
tbo Government might hava arrested,
tried and shot htm had ho remained lit
Pulls, but It Is thought to bo more
likely that thcpopular feeling against his
execution as a traitor vrpiihl havo been
found sufficiently strong to prevent tbo
Government from carrying put tha sen
tenco of Its drum head court aud deter tha
Ministry from inflicting any harsher punish
incut than expulsion from the rottntry.
Had the General sought rcfugo In Bel
gium or isowhero under a decree ot bin
Ishmcnt, Ids manifestos would have had it
ftriat deal more weight than they will now
lave, and howi vcr much ho may have been
hated by his political enemies ho need not
have forfiltcit the respect which even an
enemy feels for a brnvemoii.
Although tho so called Natlonat Party of
Franco may still bu a political power for if
llttlo while, the conviction Is becoming
universal that Boulangtsui has received it
total wound nt tbo bauds of its chief, and
Its death Is merely a question of a short
Tho only thing that can be said in Justifi
cation of Boulaugcr's desertion ot tlio field
in tho faro ot thu enemy is tho fact that tlm
Government proposed to try him beforo u
court composed of tuenwho had already
convicted of tha charges brought against,
blm, and this somewhat weakens tho force
of Iho accusations upon tbo public mind.
If tho flight ot tho General w as cowardly
It cannot bo said that tho proposed action
of tho Government was bravd. Tho min
isters, somo of whom owo alt tbVpollttcal
prominence they possess to their antago
nism ot Boulongcr, claim to havo orcr-
wnciming evidence in support ot
their charges, ami. this being tho
case, they might as a matter ut
decency and fairness at least havo shown .
willingness to glvo tha accused man as Im
partial a trial as tho ordinary criminal re
ceives. However, they nro on top at pres
ent, aud tho main interest is directed toward
observing whit eflect tho fuluilnallons of
tho absent general will havo upon the
miiTisit noT-iirvns nxcnrn.
Tho announcement, that rooms hav o been
engaged at a London hotel for General
lloujanger and tho friends wlio have choscu
to share his self-imposed oxlle front Franca
hav e excited somo of the more liot-hcadcdl
sticklers for International reciprocity and
tbo eotiserv utlon ot existing institutions at
homo and abroad to demand that the betr
noire ot tha French Republic bu met upon
his arrival on English soil by nu official re
fueal to permit lilm to remain hero uud
couduct ills wurfuru against tho FrcucU
Ridiculous as tt may seem thcruaremany
Intelligent F.uglUhmcn who icgard Bou
langcr's immediate expulsion from Groat
Britain as the duty of tho government rc
cnrdlcss ot tho facts that tho constitution
ality of such action would bo very ijut"
ttouablc; that no reason exists for prevent

The pretty well verified statements that.
Boulangcr has conferred with Prince Victor
Napoleon slnco his arrival lu Brussels
havo resulted In disgusting n great mauy
persons who have hitherto maintained, ut.
much cost of argument, that thu General
wos earnestly working fifr'the purifica
