STRANGE CASE OF GORDON

Memphis, Tenn. A special to the
News-Scimitar says: Sought at one
time by the federal authorities under
a $10,000 reward for bis capture, dead
or alive, for alleged conspiracy In the
murder of a president of the United
States, and now appointed a member
i of the legislative body of that country.
Is the strange story of Colonel James
Gordon, who has been nominated
United States senator by Governor
Noel as successor to the late A. J.
Mr. Gordon was one of several con
federate leaders suspected of being
In conspiracy with J. Wilkps Booth
to kill President Lincoln. He escaped

the reward of $10,000 was offered for
Colonel Gordon went to Canada,
and it was several months after the
close of hostilities before he found It

Chicago. Rev. W. P. Bostick, a

University of Chicago, probably will
suffer the amputation of both feet as
the result of his courageous effort to
walk twelve miles through a driving
snowstorm Sunday night in order to
reach the Christmas celebration of j
the little Baptist church at York-j
rills. A pathetic feature of the min
ister's misfortune lies In the fact
that he might have been saved great
suffering had he not been turned '

Tramp Cuts Benefactor's Throat.
Bast Douglas, Mass. Kntsring her

in the act of cutting the throat of
her 77-year old husband, whom he had
pinioned on the floor. At her shrieks

LAYS BLAME ON KNOX
SAYS SECRETARY'S ATTITUDE IS
UNDOING WORK OF SECRE-
Former Dictator Declares He Is Re
sponsible Only to His Own Govern
ment and Declares Secretary Knox
Has Been Misinformed.
Mexico City. "Mr. Knox Is not my
judge. I am answerable to my gov
ernment." Jose Santos Zelaya, who arrived
Wednesday morning from Balls Cruz,
thus replied to a question as to what
attitude he would assume should Sec
retary Knox seek to extradite him
from this country.
Zelaya refused to discuss such a
probability, but strongly intimated
that the secretary of state would not
have the right to request his presence
in the United States.
"I have no feeling against the Am
ertesn people at large, nor the gov
erniin in." lie said. "Secretary Knox
has been systematically misinformed,
and has been prejudiced against me,
but the real facts musi become
known in time, and it is to time I
trust for my vindication.
"My relations With the preceding
American government were exceed
Ingly friendly, The situation contains

of Central America, and his poUoisS

tary Knox is undoing all that work
