nl women who uro members of tbo W.
C. T. U., invaded threo joints late
this nftornoon. They assailed tho
mirrors and bottlos and other glass
v are on tho shelves with rocks and
sticks. Tho saloons wcro wrecked.
Mrs. Nation was assisted by Mrs.
Julia Evans, Mrs. Lucy Wilhert and
Mrs. Lydiu Muntz, all of tho local W.
C. T. U. organization.
With hatchets concealed under their
cloaks, they entered tho saloon of
James Uurnes, on Douglas avenuo,
and did not leave a complete piece of
glass or a working slot machino in tho
place. All showcases, both for liquor
andjoignrs, as well as tho plateglass
windows and doors, wero broken into
With lightning speed thoy ran to
John Ilcrrig's saloon and had every
thing in tho front; room, including the
plateglass windows, broken when ho
appeared with a revolver, placed it at
Mrs. Nation's head and told her ho
would blow her brains out if sho did
not desist. She yielded beforo the
pointed revolver, and, with her com
panions, ran to tho Carey hotel bar,
where sho mado her initial attack on
tho saloons of Wichita tin co weeks
ago. There three policemen met her
and sho struck Detect! vo Sutton with
a poker. Ho shoved her aside and
somo prohibition youth struck him in
tho face. Oillcer Prizer struck tho
youth and knocked him down. Tho
olliccr then overpowered Mrs. Nation
and her friends and took them to tho
olty prison, followed by 2,000 people.
Mrs. Evans' littlo daughter pushed
her way through tho crowd, scream
ing, and begged tor tho rolcaso of her
mother, but Oillcer Fox was deaf to
Chief of Polleo Cubbon discharged
tho prisoners after thoy reached tho
jail, and is heartily condemned by tho
citizens. They made him u promise
not to wreck any more saloons befoio
Mrs. Kvans1 hand was badly cut by
broken glass, and her husband, who
Is a physician, sewed It up.
Mrs. Nation wrecked a Wichita
joint December 27 and did damage
amounting to $2,000. Sim was attest
ed and put in jail. On account of a
quarantine she was not allowed ball.
January 1 tho Kansas supreme court
ordered her released on bail. Last
Thursday all charges were dismissed
against her by tho prosecuting attor
ney, who said Mrs. Nation's mind was
allccted and thai a jail sentence would
do her no good.
Mm. Nation lectin oil in Hutchinson
jesterday oeulng. Although a poor
speaker, she Is a success at drawing
crowds, and the large church was com
pletely filled by thoso who wanted to
seo tho woman whoso peon iar methods
of enfoiolng tho piohlbltlou law has
brought her so much notoriety. In her
speech she said:
"You'll hear of mo again beforo
long, and it won't bo from a lecturo
platform, olthor. This lecturing Is
meroly a side issue. God is sending
mo out to do this work, andllo intends
that I keep up what I hao alroady
douo in Wichita, and I'll do it.
Wichita isn't tho only town in Kansas
that has rocks and brickbats in tho
street, and It isn't tho only town that
Mrs. Nation is something of an
enigma. She is largo, about 00 yours
old and a mild appearing woman.
Occasionally in making her most vehe
ment throats against tho saloon men,
sho will Hinilo as It talking' upon a
pleabing subject. While fanatical,
her fanaticism is of a peculiar cast,
Sho doos not impress her hearers as
being irrational, us sho is looked up
on atj Wichita. Occasionally, how
ever, tlioro is a peculiar glitter in her
oyos and now and thou sho makes
statements which seem to showun over
wrought condition of tho mind. Re
ferring to her experience while in jail
at Wichita, Mrs. Nation said sho fear
ed that overy dish of food brought her
might bo poisoned, bhoimugined that
her onoralos would do hor bodily liunu,
"For throo nights I fastened my coll
door wlili wlro that a friendly trust)
pnvo mo, and 1 thought one night that
thoy wcro try lug to open tho door to
carry mo away."
Mrs. Nation claims to bo Inspired
by God to dostroy tho joints in Kan
sas. Sho said: "1 will gladly glvo
my life, If need be, while .destroying
thoso awful places. At Kiowa I did a
bettor job than at Wichita, for thero I
broko up threo joints, and thoy did
not arrest mo olthor."
Mr. Nation, tho husband, who has
hoJd Mrs. Nation In check, now seoms
to bo ready to follow her In her (deter
mined career. Ho will join hor at Kan
sas City, and although ho will prob
ably' not appear when anything
"eccentric" occurs, ho will bo thero
when any legal questions comes up.
Ho spoko with spirit yesterday re
garding his wife's work. Ho said:
"My wifo went Into a saloon to stop
tho violation of tho law. Thoy ar
rested her and held her in jail for
twenty days and let tho jolntist go.
While, my wlfo was In jail thoy ollcrcd
to let her go If sho would sign an
agreement that sho would not suo them
for damages. Sho refused. Thoy then
offered to pay her way to Kansas City
and send a woman with her, showing
that tho quarantine did not amount to
anything. As soon as tho higher
court compelled them to let her go
overy smallpox sign was taken down.
People In Wichita only laughed. If
God docs not rain llro and brimstono
on Wichita it will bo becausollo has
reserved it for a worse fato."
Mr. Nation said ho would immedi
ately proceed to suo Sedgwick (county
for false imprisonment of his wife, ttlo
declared ho had a good caso, and ho
would push it. "They know I havo a
good caso," ho said, "by tholr trying
to buy oil my wifo while sho was in

Wichita, Kansas, Jan. 22 Followed
by a howling, hooting mob of about
i"00 men, women and children, Mrs.
Cariio Nation left Salvation Army
headquarters at 10 o'clock tonlgh ,
bent upon wrecking more saloons.
Coming In front of a saloon on Doug
las avenue, sho was about to smash
tho plato windows when a number of
Salvationists caught her arms and pre
vented more damage. Tho crowd
dared her to wreck another placo and
then cries of "mob her" were heard.
Tho Salvation Army peoplo managed
to smnggle her to tho depot where sho
took a train for Newton.
Mrs. Nation and her associates,
Mrs. Wilholto and Mrs. Julia Kvans,
who wero arrested last night for
wrecking two saloons in this city,
again havo tholr liberty and Mrs. Na
tion's llrst act was to announco that
she will contlnuo her work of destruc
tion until overy saloon in Wichita has
been demolished. Tho trio wero re
leased upon $1,000 bonds, signed by
W. H. Smith and W. P. Jones, both
retired capitalists of this city. Whilo
tho bonds wero being arranged in tho
olllco of tho clerk of tho district court,
Mrs. Nation and tho assembled W. C.
T. U. women sang "Praise God From
Whom All Blessings Flow." When
informed that sho would bo tarred and
feathered if sho repeated hor perform
ance of Monday night, sho replied:
"That does not frighten me, neither
will it deter mo from going ahead with
tho work 1 hao begun. A man may
look In the very mouth of a cannon,
but ho will not attempt to face a woman
w itli a hatchet In her hand."
Four and llvo men have been sta
tioned in front of each of tho various
saloons of this ell), armed with clubs
and whips, with instructions to uso
them if necessary.

Colonoi Uoosovclt had not returned,

10 o'clock thoy woro convinced that ho
was tho victim of some accident, and
men and dogs started to find him.
Possibly, his friends thought, ho
had fallen while climbing tho wall of
a canon and was so injured ho could
not walk. Perhaps ho had had a i
other encounter with a grizzly and
had been less fortunate than before.
It was even suggested that ho had

IJoosovolt intended to got a fow shots
at somo of the numboiioss, littlo wohos
after which Coyote basin Is named.
They aro exceedingly lleet and can
not be run down in a broken country,
so he hunted on foot and without tho
dogs, taking his chanco for coming
upon them by stealth. But the
coyotes were wary, and he did not
get a shot tilj in tho gathering dark
net.s ho saw tho shaggy form of a gray
wolf outlined against tho sky on a
ridgo fully 300 y ards uwtiy.
It was too dark for accurato aim,

limping and yelling over tho brow of

on tho run. Ho found tho tracks of
