Indians, was an experiment of not very many
years standing, but it has proved an undoubted
Buccess, and is now a feature of all the Indian
Agencies of the great Northwest.
Ono of the secrets of the power and influence
of these Indian police is the fact that it is well
known that they will do anything they are or
dered by the authorities to do, regardless of the
consequences. They have no niorcy. There is
no winking at overt acts, treacherous as the
Indian nature is known to be. There is no
shirking of duty. The wrongdoer is as sure of
quick retribution as he is of death, and in tho
event of his getting away, ho knows his pur
suers will not leave tho trail uutil he is caught
These men seem to be thoroughly converted
to the interests of the Government, aud their
faithfulness was demonstrated two years ago
during tho Piue Bidgo troubles, when a pro-
longed and bloodly war was expected between
all Indians and the Government. The entire
force of Indian police at that place then con
sisted of some 70 men. When the great stam
pede of friendly Indians from the side of the
Government took place only four or five of the
Indian policemen were among tho number. On
the day the hostiles attacked the Agency the
Indian police made a desperate resistance, tak
ing positions directly at the points of attack
and exchanging hundreds of shots with the en
emy. The plucky behavior of these whilom
savages certainly had much to do with the
fortunate termination of the affair.
Ono of the bravest and most talked abont of
tho Indian police in tho Northwest is Capt.
Sword, Chief at tho Pine Ridge Agency. Many
interesting stories are told of his valor.
It was during tho agency of Dr. V. T. McGil
licuddy that he prohibited dancing on tho
reservation on Sunday. Noth withstanding
this, he was informed ono Sunday morning
that a great dance was in progress at the camp
of White Bird, some miles from tho Agency.
Dr. McGillicnddy sent the Indian polico to tell
the savages to stop dancing. The dancing In
dians retorted that if McGillicuddy wanted tho
dancing stopped he must come and stop it him
self. So, realizing that the only way to deal with
soch a matter was to "take no dares," but act
decisively, the Agent sent a larger body under
Serg't Sword, directing him to get the drum
used in the dancing and arrest tho most impu
dent ones of the dancers.
When Serg't Sword arrived at tho Indian
camp he found the dancers sulky and disposed
to make trouble for him. Upon their refusal
to surrender tho drum, however, Serg't Sword,
without a word, and so quickly that the Indians
were taken by surprise, strode up to the savage
who held the instrument, and ripped the drum
head with his knife. There was considerable
uproar for a few moments, but the Indian polico
stood firm and succeeded in bringing the dis
turbers, with tho rained drum, back before
The Indians from all over tho country hear
ing of the affair now came pouring in, and the
excitement was intense. There was at that
hour great danger of an outbreak, so much so
that tho accidental discharge of a gnn would
probably have precipitated one. But McGilli
cuddy acted with vigor, lodged the offenders in
jail, and the Indians dispersed shortly after
ward. Another of the stories told of Capt. Sword is
that he was once ordered, single-handed, to go
to a distant part of the reservation and bring
in, dead or alive, an Indian who was wanted
for the murder of another member of his tribe.
Many days had passed without any news being
received at the Agency from the policeman,
when ono day Sword drove into tho Agency in
a wagon which had been borrowed from an
Indian for the occasion. Driving up to tho
door of tho Agent's office. Sword jumped to the
ground, and, walking to the rear of the wagon,
drew from it the dead body of the Indian he
had been Eent after. Taking hold of the corpse,
is about the same manner that a farmer would

dian police went to the camp of Sitting Bull a
little more than two years ago, and, after a

succeeded in killing tho noted Indian whose

may be, or at whose head they are directed.
It was in tho Fall of 1690 that' a young man
named Hugh Boylo, who was visiting an undo
in tho vicinity of tho Tongno Elver reserva
tion, was murdered, and tho crimo was fixed
beyond dtfiibt upon two young Cheyenne
braves. The murderers fled to tho mountains
aud eluded soarch. An attempt was mado to
settle the affair by a gift of 30 ponies through
tho relatives of tho youug men. Upon this
being refused, they sent word that they would

A young brave at the Lower Brule Agency
some years ago, whoso name was Handsome
Elk, had somo trouble with another Indian,
went to his home, and shot him. On the
strength of the testimony of Indians who saw
tho deed, and despite tho flat denials of Hand
some Elk as to having committed tho crime, an
order was issued for his arrest. Handsome Elk
sent word to the Indian police that ho would
kill the first persou who attempted to arrest
him, and Handsome Elk's valor was well
known. Ho was, after a search, located at tho
cabin of a friend somo distance from tho
Fire Thunder, Chief of the Polico, and two
men set out to run down Handsome Elk. As
they approached thoy saw him and his friend
enter a Summer-arbor near the cabin. In the

hands to signify to tho startled braves that he
meant peace. He inquired for some stray
ponies, and finally was asked to sit down and
have a talk. Handsome Elk, however, sat with
his back towards the door and his rifle across
After sitting some little time FJro Thunder
arose to his feet, presumably for tho purpose
of inspecting some article within tho arbor,
and during tho inspection chanced, purposely,
to approach close to where Handsome Elk was
still sitting on tho ground. This was tho op
portunity for which the Chief of Polico had
waited, and with tho leap of a panther ho
sprang upon tho recumbent form of the crimi
nal, pinning him to tho ground. Giving a
signal to the two policemen who had remained
quietly outside, they speedily entered the
arbor and the murderer was made a captive.
Handsome Elk was afterwards tried in a
regular court convened in a border town, aud,
although the testimony against him was con
clusive, he was acquitted.
After his release he was greatly pleased and
was heard to say to some Indian friends that
ho would never kill another Indian, thus
practically acknowledging his guilt.
Columns could be filled with anecdotes re
garding tho bravery of tho Indian police, who
havo the reputation throughout tho reserva
tions and along the border of possessing great
nervo and being a terror to all Indian evil
doers. The good order prevailing on the In
dian reservations throughout tho West is elo
quent testimony of the efficiency of the Indian
polico at the various largo Agencies.

Tho vandals aro plodding away with their
work of destruction, with a determination to
do all tho damage possible boforo their course
is rnn. Last week a gang working on tho
north slope of Little Round Top, near Gibbs's
Ohio Battery Monument, dug np some human
bones, ovidently those of soldiers of MacCand

out any hesitation, aud with utter disregard
for the sacrodness of the remains of those who
had diod in their native State, the bones were
flung into tho carts with tho dirt and dumped
with the refuse. One man, a citizen of the
town, gathered as many of the bones as possi

Four Polar Expeditions.
During tho coming year four explorers will
start for tho north polo to find fanio and glory.
Lieut. Peary will start soon for Greenland and
endeavor to reach the polo by that route. His
new expedition contemplates tho further ex
ploration of tho north aud east coasts of Green
land, partly on tho frozen surface of tho sea
and partly ovor the Greenland ice-cap a3 tho
main line of travel.
The three other arctic expeditions will, Iiko
tho unfortunato Jeannntte, enter tho Ice pack
from North Siberian waters. Nanscn, tho well
known explorer, proposes simply to enter tho
ice-pack from a point not far from whore the
Jeaunctte was crushed in 1831, and allow his
ship to bo drifted by the pack in its own course
for a period of somo two or three years. That
thero is a steady but slow drift northward from
the Siberian waters to the coast of Greenland
has been established by tho fact that pieces of
clothing and part of the ship's papers of the
Jcannetto were picked np on the ice of
Julianohaub, southwest of Greenland. Nanscn
proposes to enter this drift in tho expectation
that it may carry him across tho polo and ulti
mately land him on the Greenland coast.
Tho third expedition, that of Ekroll, will
leave Cape Mohn, on tho east coast of Spitz
bergen, during tho present month in a boat
which can be taken to pieces and converted
into a number of sleds. The point of departure
when the ice is reached is Petermau's Land, an
island north of Francis Joseph Land. From
tho latter Ekroll contemplates a direct advance
to the pole, with a return, if possible, by way of
Fort Conger, in Lady Franklin's Bay.
Tho fourth expedition is that organized by
Mr. Frederick J. Jackson, a follow of the Royal
Geographical Society of London. Capt. Albert
H. Markham, tho famous arctic explorer, has
expressed the opinion that the nearest approach
to the polo can be made from FranciB Joseph
Land. He expects to push further north and
establish a depot of supplies in or about tho
8-ith or 85th latitude. From there, still con
tinuing his journey overland, if thero bo laud
beyond this limit, he proposes to establish a
third depot within 200 miles of tho pole. There
ho would take up his Winter quarters, and the
next Summer make his final effort to reach tho
Trouble in Samoa.
Trouble is brewing in the Samoan Islands,
and it is expected to result in open war, at
least that is what is judged from a cablegram
received at tho State Department. Ever sinco
the tripartite protectorate over Samoa tho
islands have been in a disturbed state. Ma
taafa, who acted as King during King Mali
ctoa's enforced nbsonco preceding tho Borlin
conference, has never admitted that he has
ceased to bo Xing, and, taking np a strong
position on ono of the les3er islands of tho Sa
moan group, has really maintained himself in
tho nativo regal style. Ho has always had
numerous adherents, and of lato tho troubles
that King Malietoa has encountered in the
effort to govern his kingdom havo driven many
moro of the inhabitants over to tho sido of Ma
taafa. The disaffection has become so serious
in extent that Malietoa has felt it to bo neces
sary to crush out tho aspirant for tho throne,
and tho advices received at tho State Depart
ment indicate that open warfare is now about
Not Sufficient Cause.
A short time sinco Senator Jones, of Arkan
sas, called upon the President and recom
mended the removal of a Republican office
holder in the State. Tho Chief Executive
wanted to know what charges tho Senator was
willing to prefer against the incumbent. "I
charge him with being au active and aggressive
Republican," was tho reply. The President
was not satisfied with this, and wautod to
know if ho had no stronger charges to make
than that. "That should bo sufficient under a
Democratic Administration," retorted the Sena
tor, " and that is as far as I will go in this
matter. You may uso your own pleaauro about
it. I will not prefer charges against the in
tegrity of tho incumbent, and 1 havo advised
my friends not to do so." It is stated that
Sonator Gorman, of Maryland, had a similar
experience. He could make no charges against
tho integrity or efficiency of tho individual,
aud thought that his being a Republican should
be sufficient for his removal, but tho President
informed him that ho had instructed his Cabi
net not to rnako removals upon charges of
A Repeal BUI.
Judging by tho answers sent by the Mem
bers of Congress to inquiries as to how they
will voto on the quostiou of repealing :tho
Sherman act, thero will not bo much difficulty
in getting a repeal bill through in tho early
days of the extra session. Tho friends of ro
poal soom to outnumber its opponents very
largely, and if tho question could bo narrowed
down to simply repealing the Sherman law
there would he little difficulty about it. Tho
only trouble is that there will doubtless bo at
tempts to load the repeal bills up with other
money legislation, and thero is where there
will bo great diversity of opinion. Tho idea
seems to bo very general that if the Sherman
law be repealed some legislation ought to bo
enacted for increasing the vol u mo of tho cur
rency to at least as great an extent as its
monthly increase under tho Sherman act.
Close of the Trial of Lizzie A. Borden
for a DonlilftiMurder.
Afe No. 92 Second streofcydn tho heart of Fall
River, Mass., a town of o 80,000 inhabitants,
within a sqnaro or twe'foTcrtho City Hall, lived
Andrew J. Borden, bis. wife, Abbie D. Bordon,
and two daughters Emma: Borden, the elder,
and Lizzie A. Borden, thedefendant in this case,
who is a young woman, 32 years of age. Tho
only other inmate of the houso was a servant,
Bridget Sullivan. Tho mothor of the two
young women, who aro tho only children of
Androw J. Borden, died somo 20 years ago.
'Abbio Bordon was their stoptnother. Androw
Borden was a man worth somo $300,000 or ovor,
generally roputod as closo and penurious and
exacting in his business doaliug3. Ho wa3

On the 4th day of Angnst, 1892, somo tirao
between tho hours of 9 and 11:15 a. m., An
drew Bordon and his wifo wore murdered in
their homo. Their heads wore horribly hacked
with a hatchet or somo similar weapon. Only
two persons besides tho murdered man aud
woman wore known to havo loon in the house
during the timo within which tho murder must
havo occurred. Theso wore Lizzie Borden and
Bridgot Sullivan. John V. Morso, tho matornal
nuclo of Emma and Lizzie, was a visitor at tho
house, but left tho houso early in tho morning
and did not return until after tho discovory of
the crimo. Emma was absent on a visit to
Andrew Borden went out abont 9. Ac
cording to tho tostimony of the medical experts
at the trial which is being hold, Mrs. Borden
must havo been killed from an hour to an hour
and a half bofore Mr. Bordon, which would
place the timo of her murder at 9:30 o'clock or
thereabouts, as Mr. Bordon camo back at 10:45.
During all this time Bridgot Sullivan was, sho
claimed at tho trial, washing windows. She
passed to and fro down stairs and occasionally
wont out into tho yard, and for a little whilo
during this time sho stopped her work and
ongaged in conversation with a servant girl
across the fence. She said sho did not see any
one come into or leave the houso, although
somo ono might havo boon able to do so with
out her seeing him. Sho did not sco Lizzio
Borden during this time, either.
When Mr. Borden came baolc at 10:45, Bridgot
lot him into tho houso, and sho stated that at
that moment Lizzio was
standing at the head of
tho front stairway. If
this wa3 so, it is possiblo
tbatshe might bavoseen
her mother's body nu
dor tho bed, but it is by
no means certain that
eho was standing at tho
turn in tho stairs whero
sho could soe this.
Mr. Bordon went np
Andrew Borden, tho .back Btaira to his
room and returned,
and lay down on thelounge. In answer to his
inquiry, Lizzio said Mrs. Borden Iind been called
away by a note to see a sick friend. This noto
ha3 never been found, nor has tho alleged sick
person over appeared.
Tho last timo Bridgot Sullivan saw Lizzio
was just as she started to go up-stairs to lio
down. At that moment Lizzio was carrying an
ironing-board into tho kitchen. Just before
Bridget fell asleep sho heard tho town clock
striko 11. It was about 15 minntes later that
bIio heard Lizzio calling to her that her father
was killed. His body was found lying on tho
sofa in the sitting-room, his skull cut open, and
blood staining the surrounding objects. Lizzie
dispatched Bridgot for Dr. Bowen, who lived
near by. Then sho sat down on the front door
In a few minutes Mrs. Addio Churchill, a
neighbor, camo along and asked what tho matter
was. Sho told Mr. and Mrs. Churchill of tho
murder of her father. Mrs. Churchill camo to
tho houso at once and asked for Mrs. Bordon.
Lizzie know nothing of her whereabouts, but
called to mind the fact that herstepmothor had
told her previously that she had received a
note from a friend, and in responso was intend
ing to call on that friend. However, Bridget
was requested to look for her mistress, but sho
objected to going alone, and Mrs. Churchill
went with her.
As tho two women approached the top of tho
stairs loading to tho second floor they saw on
the floor of tho guest chamber the body of Mrs.
Bordon. It was loarncd that she, too, had been
murdered in about tho samo manner her hus
band had been, viz., with several blows from
somo heavy, sharp instrument, probably an ax
or a hatchet.
According to Lizzie's own statoment sho was
with her father when ho lay down on the sofa,
and took off his boots and got his slippers.
Then, she says, sho went into tho yard ; stopped
a few moments to gather and eat somo pears;
went into tho barn and spent 20 minutes or so
searching for lead to make fishing-line sinkers.
When she returned to the houso sho found her
father's dead body lying on the sofa.
On Aug. 11 Lizzio Borden was arrested, and
later was committed to the Taunton jail. Be
fore tho trial sho was taken to tho jail at Now
Dr. Bowen, Mrs. Churchill and Mrs. Russell,
as well as Bridget her
self, all testified that
there was nothing un
usual about Lizzio's
dress, that her hair was
smooth and in order,
and that sho gavo no
indications of having
recently had violent
even to the solos of her
shoes, was submitted
to the minutest scien
tific examination by
experis, witn trie re
suit that no blood, except one spot as large as
a pin's head on her skirt, was found.
A belief in the double guilt of Lizzio Borden
means this, that with her mother lyiug slaugh
tered up-stairs sho went calmly about her ordi
nary household duties; that eho chatted and
laughed with Bridget, and then took herchunces
on Bridget getting out of the way long enough
for her to slip into tho room and split open lior
father's head as it lay resting on the pillow,
which sho had smoothed for him to rest upon.
It involves also believing that after butchering
her mother with Bridget about the house aud
apt to co mo up-stairs at any moment, she was
ablo to niako way with iher weapon and her
blood-soaked garments of slaughter as quickly
and doftly as she did after the murdor of her
On Monday, Juno 5, the trial of Lizzio Bor
don began. It has been hold boforo Chief JuBt
ico Mason and Associate Justices Blodgett and
Dowry. The prisoner has been defended by
ox-Gov. Georgo D. Robinson, Lawyers Androw
J. Jennings, of Fall River, and Melvin O.
Adams, of Boston. Tho prosecution has been
conducted by District Attorney Kuowltou and
Assistant District Attorney Henry Moody, of
tho Eastern District.
It is sufficient to say that in tho courso of
tho trial the eutiro case of tho Government
has been negatived by tho fact that tho defense
has been able to show the opposite thing to
that which has been charged against Lizzie
could havo been go. Tho prosecution has
proved nothing. It has been totally at losa to
1 account for tho way in which Lizzie, if guilty,
could have removed all traces of each crimo so
soon after its commission.
Tho police of Fall River have plnyed a very
dastardly part, as, judging from their actions,
it would scorn that thoy had docided from tho
first that Lizzio was guilty, and tried their
best, oven to the extent of lying in tho witness
box, to secure hor conviction. But the defenso
ably proved tho falsity of thoir assertions, and
nullified the effect of any of their testimony
which horo against tho prisoner.
Tho fact of Lizzio having burned a blue
dross a fow days after the murder was proved
by tho dofense to havo boon a porfectly reason
able proceeding and in keeping with tho habits
of tho Borden family. It was shown that in
stead of Lizzio boing at "outs" with her step
mother, sho was on pleasant enough tornis with
her. The prosecution failed to show a motivo
for tho crime that was satisfactory.
In substantiation of Lizzio's statement, that
sho wont out into tho barn, etc.. a pedler was
found who testified that ho saw Lizzio Borden
coming from tho direction of tho barn towards
tho house at a fow minutes past 11. Of courso
Lizzio Bordon might havo gono to the barn
and did as sho said after having murdered hor
father, but tho prosecution could not show
The evidence that Lizzio had attempted to
buy prussic acid was ruled out as irrelevant.
It was shown that her family physician had
administered morphia to tho prisoner after tho
murdor, and hi any event trifling discrepancies
in hor story whilo laboring under strong ex
citement woro to bo expected, and the physician
tostified that tho morphia might affect her
momory at tho inquest.
This ovidenco givon boforo the Coronor's in
quest by tho prisonor was ruled out, becauso
sho was under arrest when sho gavo it.
This was considered a point of groat import
ance to the defense. It was showu to havo
been the custom to bolt the front door to keop
it from flying open. The effort to connect Liz
zio with tho hatchet or any other woapon
failed. All this was shown by tho prosecuting
witnesses, and, furthor, that tho theory of ex
clusivo opportunity was supported only by
Tho prosecution closed without having scored
a point of importance. Tho defense brought
up fow witnesses. Tho caso was arguotLbriefly,
and-sent to the jury. A verdict of not guilty
is doubtless forthcoming.
A Scottish American Monument.
The Town Council of Edinburgh, Scotland,
recently gavo a plot in the Calton Hill Ceme
tery for tho intermont of Scottish soldiers who
sorvod in tho American civil war. Mr. Wallace
Bruce, the American Consul, started to raise
funds for an appropriate mnnumcut to mark
the spot, aud was successful in raising about
$6,000. The commission was appropriately as
signed to Mr. George E. B'is3ell, a well-known
sculptor aud army votoran. Ho took as hl3
idea " Lincoln Emancipating tho Slave," a
subject happily chosen for a monumont in Great
Britain, as it represents tho consummation of
Saxon freedom for whioh Wilberforco and his
co-laborer3 so grandly wrought. Tho monu
mont will bo 15 feet in bight (Lincoln in
bronze, life-sizo, six feot four inches, with freed
slavo at his feot, pointing to Lincoln as the
liberator of his raco). By bis side aro tho im
plements of war, and tho flags of Scotland and
tho United States. A Scottish cap surmounts
them, and above, on tho die, is tho shield of
tho United States surrounded by the floral em
blems of the two countries (tho Thistle and the
Golden Rod). Tho stone work, nino feot in
bight and nino feet at the base, is of red Peter
head granite, all polished, except the lower
base, which will be rock-faced. The Hon.
Chauncoy M. Depew has consented to deliver
tho oration at tho dedication, which will take
placo some time in August.
The Old Wr Ship EBsex.
Tho old war-ship Essex is now lying at the
Norfolk Navy-yard, and has been ordered out
of commission. Sho ha3 ju3t returned after a
cruise of a number of yearn in the South At
lantic station, and will bo used in the future as
a training-ship for gunnery practice by the
Naval apprentices, after being overhauled and
repaired. Sho will bo stationed at Nowport,
and her old battery of muzzle-loaders will be
replaced by rapid-firing gunB.

Ten Thousand Watches

If You Want a Watch for Nothing Read this
"We have 10,000 watches, which are not for Bale, but we propose to give every
one of them away in the next sixty days.
In this enterprise we shall not only eclipse all other publishers in the matter of
premiums, but break our own record.
DESCRIPTION OF THE WATCH.
This watch is a timepiece guaranteed to run with accuracy. It need only be wound
once every twenty-four hours. No key has to be carried, but it wind3 and sets by a peienfc
attachment shown in the cut of the works. The face, therefore, need not be opened to
set it. It is suitable to carry in the pocket or to hang upon the wall in bedroom or parler
To save space tho cuts are slightly reduced
in size, the face of the watch being one and
seven-eighths of an inch in diameter and
about an inch thick. It is no heavier than
an ordinary silver watch, and but a trifle
thicker. It has a strong, quick beat, and
runs in any position, either at a standstill
or in motion, and is not affected by heat or
cold. It is open-faced, with a heavy glass
crystal. The case is polished and lacquered
to resemble gold. This material is frequent
ly advertised as firegilt
Our arrangements for the watch compel
us to put a time limit upon this offer. We
can only furnish this premium to those who
order within sixty days. TVe regret to be
obliged to place any limit whatever, but
the club is so small that it will not incon
venience anyone, we trust, to send in his
names for the premium at once.
One or two nam 63 sent in at a time, with
money for same, will be credited toward the
club of five, and when five names at $1 each
have been sent, the sender can ask for the
watch, and it will be sent him postage prepaid.
In order to demonstrate our entire confidence in our proposition, we guarantee th
delivery of the watch in good running orderj but if it should have been damaged in th
mail, it can be returned to us for exchange.
This offer does not apply to, and will not include, subscription
that have heen sent prior to April 22.

The watch will not be sold at any price,
but given J?IEE to any one who will
send us a club of OXLY FIVE yearly
subscribers to The National Telbuhe at
This statement does not seem reasonable
upon the face of it, but our readers know
that the extension of a subscription list to
any newspaper involves an enormous ex
penditure in advertising, and for other pur
poses. A new subscriber to any newspaper
costs more than the publisher receives,
owing to the expense incurred in procuring
him. It is only subscribers who continue
their patronage year after year who are
profitable from a pecuniary standpoint.
"We intend, at any cost, to put the sub
scription list of The National Tbibunx
in over a nnnrter of a million.
