The Indian Exhibit nt the World's
Fair will be under the direct charge
of expert representatives of the
.United States Government. S. M.
;McGowaii, superintendent of the
Indian School at Chilocco, Okla
I noma, will be superintendent of the
exhibit. The government has ap
propriated $75,000 for the mainte
nance of it. The Louisiana Pur
chase Exposition has allotted an
advantageous site of 40 acres for
the purpose. TI19 tract lies in the
western section of the grounds,
north of the great United States
map that is worked out in repre
sentative crops of the states and ad
joiuiug Uncle Sam's model farm.
The eastern end of the Indian res
ervation is a precipitous bluff, about
twenty feet high, and it overlooks
practically the entire exposition
Thjs Indian exhibit will not only
be the largest and best that was
ever assembled, but in all proba
bility it will be the last representa
tive gathering that can be secured.
In but few places do the Indians
retain their primitive mode of life.
Each year the circle narrows. Even
now one can count on the fingers
of one hand the Indian chieftans
who gained their prominence in
wars. Further Indian wars are
looked on as impossible, and before
another exposition of the magni
tude of the present enterprise can
be launched the primitive red man
of the forest will be but a memory.
Geronimo, the once bloodthirsty
Apache chief, who spread terror
throughout the southwest until he
was finally captured by General
Nelson A. Miles, will be one of the
striking features of the Indian ex
hibit. Of all the tribes that roamed
America's forests the Apaches were
the most cruel and treacherous.
And of all the Apaches Geronimo
was the most vicious. He fought
desperately when escape was possi
ble by no other means. But
slaughter from ambush and the
slaying of the defenseless was the
more to his choosing. Long years
of captivity have broken his spirit
and he is docile because he has met
his master. When General Miles
first made Geronimo captive he was
sent to Florida, but in short while
he was returned to the prison at
Ft. Sill. Geronimo will be nomi
nally free at the World's Fair, but
practically a prisoner of war.
Chief Joseph, of the Nez Pcrces,
also will be one of the interesting
personalities. He, too, is aged,
and while he fought valiantly
against the encroachments of the
white man, he met the foe as a
brave man should and has the re
spect of the men who conquered
The Indian exhibit will show the
aborigine and the civilized Indian.
On the 40-acre tract there will be a
village of Sioux Indians from the
Dakotas. They will wear their na
tive picturesque costumes and will
live in teepees fashioned from sticks
and the skins of wild animals.
The warriors will be armed with
bows, arrows and tomahawks. The
surroundings of the huts will be
made as true to nature as possible,
and the patch of com tended during
the summer by the squaws to aug
ment the food supply brought in
from the chase by her master will
be shown us it was in the early
Among the other blanket Indians
will be families of Washoes, Sho
shones, Navajoes, Mission and
Digger Indians, Crows, Flatheads,
machines, manufacturing various
articles. Across n wide nisle, that
runs the full length of the building,
will be typical blanket Indians
making their baskets, leather arti
cles, strings of beads, and other
articles just ns they did before the
advent of the white man and his
In the auditorium will be given
lectures, and programmes will be
rendered by the various Indian so
cieties. Music enters largely into
their entertainments, and one of the
regular features will be concerts by
a trained Indian band of fifty pieces.
One interesting feature of the In
dian Exhibit will be n reproduction
of n frontier trading post. Here
the Indians will assemble and trade
their products for supplies just as
they did in the early days.

distributed as prizes in this class.
A butter exhibit in the shape of
two cows, to show the relative value
of Jersey and "scrub" cattle will be
shown by Indiana at the World's

butter, will be kept in a cold stor
age glass case. One cow will rep
resent a full-blooded Jersey and the
other one a "scrub." The Jersey
will be exactly four times the size
of the "scrub," showing the pro
portion of butter that is produced
by the Jersey over the "scrub."
Souvenir Dollars in lairge Demnnil.
The Souvenir Coin Department
of the World's Fair is unusually
active, at present because of the ap
proaching holidays. There is a
large demand for the Louisiana
gold dollar for gift purposes, par
ticularly from jewelers, who agree
that the souvenir coin is a gem of
numismatic excellence nud particu
larly adapted to various mountings
in forms for personal adornment.

Lo Angeles, Dec. 29. Sad tid-,
ings from Denver yesterday an-
nouueed that our steaming fellow-1
citizen, George M. Gray, is still
going and still drunk. A trail of ,
empty bottles marks his path nil
the way to Colorado and in the
night time the trail can be followed
by n faint nromn of old rye. 1
Gray is a horrible example of a
man who has strangled n respect-1
able thirst for fifty-nine years and
thdn suddenly let it out without a
muzzle on. '
He used to live in Iowa, which 1
is a temperance btatc. Por many
years his tongue was drying into
cracks. Last February he sold his
farm and emigrated to California.
In Los Angeles he found a haven '
of joy where the only limit is the '
capacity of the brewery. His pre
vious demure respectability was 1
thrown to the winds. ,
When he left his Los Angeles
home he evidently had a premoni
tion that it was to be no mere ordi-1
nary spree, for he bade his wife a
sad good-by. It is claimed that he
has not drawn a sober breath since.
The reckoning yesterday showed
that Gray's attempt to catch up
with his record has so far involved
every bank in Los Angeles in a
lawsuit; has broken up his own
home, and hns cost the money with
which he was to buy a California
Gray and his wife lived in Red
Oak, Iowa. They had been mar-'
ried fifteen years; all their children j
were dead. They sold the farm
for $7000 and came to Los Angeles l
last February. The house they j
took, until they should buy a ranch, (
was at No. 757 " Wall street. 1
About three months ago Grav
told his wife he was going to leave
her. He had no good explanation
to make. But there was a wild
light in his eye. She didn't under
He stayed away four or five days
and then returned for a fragmen
His wife endured that sortof thing
for awhile, but at last, as he seemed
to be spending their money, decided
to bring an action against him to
get maintenance and support. This
action is no nv pending in theSu-!
perior Court. Her attorney got an j
order from Judge Trask citing him
to appear. He couldn't be found.
The police tried without success to 1
locate him. I
Mrs. Gray was frightened as to ,
what had become of their money.
I Her fright resulted in the unique ,
move to drag every bank in the
city as party defendant in a suit to
make a husband support his wife. 1
Judge Allen made an order re-'
quiring every bank to appear before
him and say whether or not Gray
had funds there.
To save the bankers trouble and
annoyance, Mrs. Gray's lawyer
made the rounds.
It was discovered that Gray had
deposited $375 November 5 and
drawn it out again November 9. 1
It was about this time that he dis
appeared. A letter arrived yester
day from Denver saying that Gray j
had been in that city about Novem-I
ber 12. As to where he has gone 1
since, his wife and her lawvers have I
no intimation. He was still drunk j
! when he was seen in Denver.
He has apparently taken all their 1
savings of years with hiin. Mrs.
Gray has been obliged to go to ,
work as a servant in a hotel to
Unfortunately the laws of Cali
fornia do not render him liable to '
criminal prosecution. '
In the connection with the suit !
for maintenance is a point of law
