which we thought wo could work
through M.irlin H"ieo. We wont to
the queen hut could not get a per
sonal conference with her and came
to the United States with properly
matured ideas but with 110 definite
arrangement, but thought wn could
interest Mr. Rice enough to get him
to outline a plan and by a blended
effort we could get executive action
a littlo latter, make QuantrolPs son
Furious, and both profit bv it finan
cially. We went and called on lliee again
but Tound him utterly incapable of
steering any kind of policy through
as he was too far in his dotage. He
was quite childish and his usefulness
had narrowed down till a small circle
around him contained it. Hp was
writing then and preparing a book
of his poem and look more delight in
talking about the Sniabnr hills and
reading to us "Among the Hills of
Sniabar" than anything we could
bring to ids mind in the way ot shap
ing the history of the islands. We
went back and Quant roll despaired,
but later he saw his plans loom up in
reality. He rejoiced at it, came back'
to San Francisco and one of lib sons
came with him and engaged in busi
ness, but at the breaking out of the
Spanish-American war he went, to
Michigan and enlisted in the 33rd
Michigan Infantry and took part in
the battle of Santiago.
Young Quantrell is prominent in
politics and is a Republican. The
other boy is a prominent citizen of
Hawaii. Quantiell has a daughter
married and living in Kansas. I
came to Kansas to see tier. I am in
my 87th year. My niece is a con
stant reader of your pap? r, as her
husband is a subscriber. She 'how
ed me the cartoon, showing lm 1
father's bones and with her consent
and of my own volition 1 write this
letter. Aaron B. Russell, Mullin
We presume that there are a great
many who will read this letter and
imagine that the old man is lhe vie
Urn of a pipe dream, the hallucina
tion of age, but they must at least
acknowledge that it is an interesting
communication. Mail and Breeze.
William Quantrell, the most notori
ous guerilla of the United Slates
raided the town or Lowrence, Kansas
in May 1S02. He had under him two
hundred and eighty- five mpn, two
hundred and sixty of whom were
strapped to their horses in such a
wiy that it, was impossible for them
to get off. He burned the town and
killed one hundred and forty persona
and destroyed one hundred and forty
houses with the loss of but one man
who was --hot and killed by a boy of
Mr. Case wrhes that lie was in
Lawrence about an hour' after the
departure of Quantrell and saw about
eighty persons with -their arms and
legs burned off.
It is thought that if he ever resid
ed in the islands he went, under an
assumed name. In Lawrence before
the war he was a school teacher and
wan accused of forge.-y by some of
the residents of Lawrence and for
that and other reasons decided to
wipe Hie town off the map which ho
did. He was a small man and weigh
ed pi obably about one hundred ai.d
thirty fivo pounds.
If thete Is any truth in the claim
that he died in the Territory ii shou'd
be an snsy matter to vcrrlfy it for
acs.rate records are kept by the
Hoard of Health of the death of all
persons in the islands.
