Don't imuglne that It Is too light to bo
strong. A careful examination will con
lnce nny candid Investigator that It Is
stronger than any blcjcie that weighs
within four pounds of It. Actual scile
weights are na follows:
Men's lloadstcr, 19 pounds.
I.idles' Diamond Itoudslcr, IS pounds.
Ladles' Drop l'rame lloadstcr, 20 pounds.
Tanilim, 3! pounds.
We have the scales and will weigh them
for i on nt nny time. Don't be fooled on
weights. The Thistle Is the only road wheel
that actually cales under 2u pounds. Ask
any dealer who claims to have a road
wheel as light even as 20 pounds to put It
on the scales.

seem to take more than' ordinary Inter

exception, say he Is a most remarkable
man from nuv standpoint.
This morning ulniost a. score of Durant's

his back upon them and would have noth

San Tranclsco, April 20. The steamer
Australia, which arrived this morning, re
ported that Minister Thurston returned
from Washington last Saturday. Soon nfter
his nrrlvnl he wna closeted with Minister
Hatch. The latter official liter stated thnt
Thurston hnd not been recalled. As far as
he knew, the Amerlcnn minister hnd not
received any notification of recall, or at
least ho had not Intimated to the gov em
men thnt ho had.
Minister Hutch defended Thurston's
course while nt Washington, and was confi

Minister Thurston had not been intrusted
with nny communications in regard to tho

In which It was alleged Thurston took part,
tho Hnw.ill.in government defended his
course. In closing, .Mr. Hatch said. "If
Thuiston has stated any facts In ngnrd to
local nffalrs, he hod n perfect right to
Thurston may not return to Washington,
ns It Is understood that he would prefer to
remain in Hawaii. In government circles
It is stated that ho Is thereto consult with
the government on various matters. If he
dicldes to quit his post at Washington the

It was announced that tho government
had decided to piuilon W V. Ashford The

Indian Territory, stated to-day that he
would mike Tahlequah his home during
the summer, und after that would locate
permanently nt Muscogee. He will leave
for the West In time to open court by the

Judge Springer has come to the conclu

lleforo leaving for tho West he will pre.

The claim Is now made that neither

provision of the constitution makes nny

that Mr. Springer took considerable inter

Washington, April 20 News hns reach

on a rlrnrgo of being a spy In the Interest
of the Hovns In Mndagnsear, ngalnst
whom the Piench hnvc been waging war.
The sentence was Unloosed bv a cotirt

the Prench government will only add to
the amount of Indemnity It will bo oiled
upon to pay should Mr. Waller's friends
show that the charge upon which he vvas
sentenced Is baseless, it will null fnclll

make a most thorough examination of all

by admitting Its Indisposition or Inability

cessions, who desired to sPl.e n-aii the
I Hide Hut, j-o far ns the facts are known,
Mr Waller obtained this concession in a
peifectly legitimate manner, and his title
must be protected. Our government has
uniformly held, notably In eases arising in
Central Ameilci, that an American citizen
cannot be dispossessed of n concession, so
long as ho compiles with Its terms, by nny
revolution In the government of the coun
try where It ma be situated The rule of
International law Is clear as to the nieserv
atlon of tho Individual's title In such c ises,
and having laid down this doctrine In our
relations with tho weaker nations of this
continent, the Rtate dep irtment can hardly
do less than maintain it nt, ngalnst I'rance.
Tho Information reaching Washington
gives the dot ills of the charge under which
Waller wjis convicted as a spy.
The Prench soldiers had determined to
m.iko a descent on one of the lirge llov is
towns It wns to be a night nttnek, and
was Intended to be a decisive stroke The
nrringi'inents for the move were guarded
with the utmost secrecv. In i-ome way,
however. Waller learned of the Prench
movement, and Is said to have conveved
full Information to the llovns The latter
quickly armed the threatened town, so
tint when the Prench soldiers niipenred
thev were met by nn effective resistance
Instead of taking tho tilicu by surprise,
they found every one alert to the attack.
The alleged trcichery vvas closely Inves
tigated and It Is claimed was tract d to
Waller. Aside from tho erngrln to which
the Prench forces wero put by having
their plans miscarry, it Is paid tn havn
