Vladcz island is covered with a mag
nificent growth of first-elnas timber and
many locnl timber holders have thoir
claims there. - Forest preservation on
the island has caused anxiety in local
business circles, which is all tho more
heightened by the fact that nothing
can bo done to stop it. Rain is badly
needed along tho coast. .
Fire Warden McKay stated today
that tho recent big bush fire near Gow

was at first supposed. AVhilo the flro
destroyed a large tract of timber, it
also burned the bridges and destroyed
tho roads in tho vicinity and tho peo

which the dam was destroyed will have
no access to tho water until new roads
and bridges are built.
'"T'he people in the vicinity, ' said
Mr McKay, "will be practically des

done very quickly to relieve them and

Condemned Woman Expresses
Confidence That She Will
Not Be Executed.
KANSAS CITY, Aug. 27. Gov. Folk,
at Jefferson City today granted a re
spite until October 26 to Mrs. Agnes
Myers, now in jail at Liberty, awaiting
execution for lho murder o"f her hus
band. A similar respite was granted in
the case of Prank Hottman, Mrs.
Mj'er's accomplice, now in jail at Kan
sas Cit'. Bbth wcro previously sen
tenced to be hanged on September 3.
Gov. Folk granted the respite so that
the woman's attorneys might have time
in which to perfect their appeal to the
Supremo court of the United States.
Mrs. Agnes Myers, in her cell at the'
Liberty, Mo., jail, expressed confidence
that her attorneys, who are at Jeffer
son City, would be successful in secur
ing a further reprieve from Gov. Folk.
' 'T am suro tho Governor is tho kind
of a man who belioves in giving every
body a squn.ro deal," said Mrs. Myers,
who is under sentence to be hanged
on Soptember 3, with Frank Hottman,
for tho murder of her husband.
"I havo never for a minuto thought
that he would permit my sentence to bo
carried out. 1 have never experienced
in the slightest degree the feeling that
death was approaching and have scarce
ly given the subject the least thought
in the past wcok. I am sure that 1 will
never meet mv death on tho scaffold "
R. B. Buff and Judge W. E. Fowler,
counsel for Mrs. Myers, applied to
Judge Burgess of tlio State Supremo
court this morning for a writ of error
to tako tho case to tho United States
Supreme court for review and final de
termination. Judgo Burgess stated that
because of the absence rrom tho city of
Judgo Grant thai it would not be pos
sible to act on tho application until
later in September.
Mrs. Myers's attorneys today ap
plied to Gov. Folk for a rcHpito that
they might apply to the Federal court
for an order to transfer the case thero
for review. The Governor, in tho
courso of tho morning, had received
dozens of telograms from various parts
of tho State, asking him to grant a
respite and when the matter was for
mally presented to him by the attor
neys he readily Jissonted, giving Hott
man similar consideration.
Mrs. Agues Myers and Frank Hott
man murdorcd Clarence Myers, tho
woman's husband, on Mav 11, 1904,
that thoy might marry. This is tho
second respite granted by Gov. Folk. .

"I do not myself care for it, and it

A price has been set on cvor' dis

It is said the price asked was con
sidered too high by the. Standard Oil
people and the latter threatened if suit
able terms cannot be reached to build
distilling houses of their own. The chief
reason of this action on the part of
tho Standard Oil company will be the
recent passage of tho alcohol bill by
Congress. Exports employed by tho
Rockofoller interests, atter experiment
ing, reported their product cannot be
manufactured cheaply enough to make
it a serious competitior of gasoline, but
that it could be used in the manufac

valuable product to control.

Telling Blows Dealt.
At the moment today when the Gov
eminent was issuins Its proclamation
offering pardon to rebels who would lay
down their arms. Its forces were dealing
the most telling blow that has yet been jH
struck against insurgents in the field.
For several days It had been stated that
Gen. Guzmau's force of insurgents, which IH
was variously estimated at from 200 up- IH
ward, contemplated an attack on Clen- IH
fuegos. Col. Valle, with a detachment
of rural guards, was dispatched to Clen
fucgos for the purpose of engaging Guz
man and breaking up the band. The en- "
counter of the two forces today resulted
in the worst disaster which tho lnsur
gents have sustained up to this thus.
They lost seventeen men killed and IH
many woundod, while the loss to the j
Government force was one man killed.
Tho Government is without further par
ticulars of the fight.
Thnt the insurrection is in a shaky
condition seems to be a fact, although
the end may not be as near as members
of the Government profess to believe.

of the Liberal parly, stated that he was j

whether tho Insurgents would grasp tho
opportunity offered them of surrender-
