The story of the Servant at the House
at Which the Prophet Is Said
to Be Stopping,
Special to the Globe.
Lincoln, Neb., Jan. 30.— Can it be pos- '
sible that Brigham Young, the unholy pres- I
ident of the Mormon church of Salt Lake, is !
alive? Years. ago it was supposed that his j
body had been consigned to the sepulchre, but
vow a story is told that has a tendency to
shock the credulity of the most susceptible.
But the apparent authenticity of the story !
will remove from the minds of many all !
ideas of sophistry. Several citizens of this •
city who knew Young in Salt Lake during '
the halcyon days of Mornionistn have seen
him within the past thirty-six hours, and }
they are not of a callow stripe. Truth 'is
stranger than fiction and murder will out.
Two miles south of this city is a palatial
residence owned by an English gentleman
long since identified with the Mormon
church. The residence has been unten
anted for the last two years, save by an old
servant, a man named White, who was
WITH THE JEZEELS,
of London, a sect similar to the Mormons.
He claims he was defrauded by them out j
of his property, and latterly became con- !
verted to the Mormon faith. lie was con- j
sidered a trustworthy man, and was. there
fore, partially through necessity, taken into |
the confidence of the leaders of the Mormon j
church of Zion. which, according to his |
statements, is about to perpetrate a fraud j
to which he is unwilling to become a party, j
He says: "Two months ago there arrived
at the mansion an old gentleman bearing
letters from my master in Lon
don, the purport of which was
to obey his every wish and
to keep his presence a secret to all except
those to whom he saw lit to reveal himself.
Within a week persons began to arrive at
the house in twos and threes. They were
from Salt Lake City, and held long whis
pered consultations with the mysterious
guest. At first 1 did not care who or what
he was, until little by little I gathered from
stray remarks that he was a person of note,
and soon after the
TROTH BURST UPON ME
that he is none other than Brigham Young,
the great prophet of our church, who is to
apparently be resurrected from the dead
and preach to the people of Zion as one I
having returned from the grave to tell what |
lies beyond. That his death and burial
were a deception will soon be seen by the
whole world while thousands of his igno
rant believers bow at his feet and he dic
tates . to them their ways of
life, ■•'lip "guest's visitors are men
of high 'Standing, as their appearance
indicates, and it was in conversation with
one of them that I learned the truth. He
supposed from the way 1 talked that I knew
that my suspicions were verified, only my
informant said Brigham Young had risen
from his grave in Salt Lake and was in
structing his disciples here in order to pre
pare the people for the great event of his
coming. My only reason for telling these
facts is that 1 am an old man* with but lit
tle to gain in this world, and do not want
to see a people deluded as I have been. The !
Jezrels absorbed my competence, and now
the Mormons have broken my faith." The
old man told the story with a sincerity that
warranted further investigation, and a mer
chant, who formerly did business in Salt
Lake, drove out to the mansion this after
RAPPED AT THE BOOR.
Receiving no response he started around
the house to apply at the rear, when through
a bay-window he saw the form and features
of an old man, who sat enjoying a sun bath.
As he was unaware of his presence the
merchant approached to within a few feet
of the window, scanning the old man's face
closely and, stepping back, immediately
pronounced the man to be Brigham Young,
whose marked features he had often studied
in Salt Lake, which once seen, he says, can
never be forgotten. For a few moments
the figure sat silently, then raised his hand
in a wearied way to his brow,
revealing a scar about the wrist
that still further establishes his identity.
It is a well-known fact that the elders of
the Mormon church throughout Utah and
Arizona have of late been preaching the
return of the prophet. This, together with
the fact that it was claimed by a St. Louis
man some months ago that Young was seen
and recognized in London; that a number
of prominent Mormons have lately been
seen upon the streets of Lincoln; that im
portant legislation is about to be enacted
to the detriment of the Mormon church,
and tiie veil of mystery with which the
prophet's death has always been shrouded,
make it almost certain that the Mormon
banners throughout Utah will soon be un
furled, announcing that "He is risen."

The Reports Continue to be Gener
Chicago, Jan. 30. — The following sum

the Farmers' Review: The reports from
the principal winter-wheat growing states
continue to be generally favorable, with the
i exception of those from Illinois and Kan
sas. In Illinois some of the southern coun
ties report the fields as bare and the plant
looking poorly. This is the case in Bond
and Hamilton counties. In Edgar and Iro
quois counties the nelds are reported bare,
but no injury has resulted. From twenty
three other Illiuois counties the reports this
week show that the grain is look
ing well. In Allen, Brown. Franklin,
Lincoln. Sedgwick and Shawnee counties
of Kansas the fields are bare and the plant
suffered injury and looks badly. In Chau
tauqua, Cloud. Neo.sho, Branch, Grand >
Traverse, Lenawakee and Livingston coun- !
ties the wheat is looking well. The re- '
ports from Missouri, covering thirteen conn- |
ties, are uniformly favorable. Of the six
teen Ohio counties making report this week
three report wheat as looking poorly,
namely, Athens, Noble and Trumbull
counties. The remaining counties report
the outlook as fair to good. Nearly ail the
Southern counties are bare of snow, which i
is also true of Fulton and others of the
Northern counties bordering on the lake.-
In Fulton and Ohio counties of Indiana the ■
fields are bare of snow and the plant has >
suffered from freezing. The Wisconsin
fields are generally well protected with
snow and no injury is reported.

Larger Every Day.
New York, Jan. SO.— All was quiet
along the docks to-day. A rumor was in
circulation which contained both a threat
and a warning. ■ The former was that the
supply of coal to the gas companies would
be cut off in a week, and the warning was
to householders and others to provide them
selves with lamps to be ready in case of an
emergency. To-morrow morning 3,500 ,
more men will join the strikers. This will |
shut down the work on the docks
of the sailing vessels, tramp steamers
and other steamers on the piers of the East
river, Jersey City, Weehuwken, Bayonne
and Brooklyn. They have no grievances,
but have been ordered out to support those
already out. The men who will go out to
morrow were cautioned not to molest or in
any way interfere with the men who choose
to take their places. By this action many
hundreds of men employed on the oil docks
at Hunters point and Bayonne will be
thrown into idleness.

New York; Jan. 30.— Herald says
that a New York syndicate has made an
extensive purchase in Alabama. The in

Bismarck, Jan. 30. — The pressure that
is being exerted on Gov. Pierce to force
him to make the territorial appointments
which Church would naturally make should
he be confirmed is becoming very great,
and has redoubled since Gov. Church left
Bismarck for his home in Huron. It is be
lieved here in certain quarters that the se
cret of the delay in Church's confirmation
is due not to any action on the part of Gov.
Pierce, but to the influence of several office
seekers, who expect the delay to enable
them to work on Gov. Pierce to such a de
gree that he will make the coveted appoint
ments. Should he do so. it is believed
Church's confirmation would follow almost
at once. Democrats here say that the party
could well afford to see this Republican
scheme go through, as it would be worth

Girl Through the Heart and is
New York. Jan. 30.— Edward Unger,
| the murderer of August Bohle, whose body
' was found last week in a trunk shipped to
: Baltimore, has made a fall confession of
j he killing. Unger was arrested on Thurs
' clay last and after being a short time locked
! in liis cell he was brought before Inspector
! Byrnes, lv the room was a table on which
; had been placed the hammer with which
i Bohle was killed, the knife and saw used
i to cut up the body, and the rubber cloth in
\ which the body was wrapped alter the kill
; ing. The chair upon which Unger seared
himself was so arranged that he could see
i little else in the room save the bloody
; weapons. He was asked if he wished to
■ say anything. He shook his head, but sud-
I denly said: "Bohle has goae to Chicago
and will turn up in a few days."
The inspector was sitting at the
table. lie had the bloody hammer in his
hand, and caselessly asked Uuger what he
meant by that. The sight of the instru
ments on the table seemed uot to affect him,
and the chief of detectives deemed the man
stubborn. Inspector Byrnes concluded to
say no more to him at the time, but to con
front him soon ana at intervals with people
he knew, and also to confront him fre
EVIDENCES OF THE KILLING.
Mrs. Seigel, wife of the Brooklyn sausase
nialcer, was brought to identify Uuger. He
was much surprised to see her. but was not
allowed to talk. On Friday he was identi
iied by Mrs. Benze, the Brooklyn saloou
'■■ keeper's wife, whose husband stored the
I trunk while the latter sought au express*
I man. Every time Unger left his ceil he
| was confronted with some evidence of the
i crime of which he was believed to be the
j author. A detective watched constantly at
; the door of the cell in which Unger was
confined, but under strict orders to not
respond if the prisoner attempted
conversation, which he did at times. Be
ing brought many times before inspector
Byrnes, and his own acquaintances without
being allowed to talk at length, rendered
Unger irritable and nervous. Friday after
noon Byrnes took the hammer, saw, kuifo
and rubber cloth to Unger's cell and asked
if he had seen them before in a manner as
though Unger had not been half a dozen
times confronted with them. Uuger was
startled, but said he had never before seen
the bloody tokens. Then he was taken to
court and remanded, and on the way back
remarked to Inspector Byrnes: "You are
TRYING- TO HANG ME."
The trunk with the body arrived from
Baltimore yesterday. The body was sent
to the morgue. That night Byrnes went to
Unger's cell and asked him how he felt.
"Pretty well," said he huskily. Then the
inspector unlocked the cell door and Detec
tive Hickey called Unger into the corridor,
where the lights were turned low. The
prisoner stepped forth, but did not see the
inspector until the latter called him by
name. As he turned he saw Byrnes staud
in=r pointing n.t the trunk which Lad held
Uu'ule:d..tl(^!.V body. Unger staggered at
tnte siirht 'a ltd tottered toward his cell.
Byrnes then took from the trunk a piece of
the murdered man's coat, which had
been used to wrap the body
and, holding it before the prisoner's eyes,
asked him where the rest of Bohle's coat
was. Unger shuddered at the siirht of the
blood-stiffened garment, and, clasping his
hands over iiis eyes, was about to fall,
when Detective Hickey caught him and
seated him upon a couch in the corridor.
He sat down upon it and, removing his
hands, glanced about him. Suddenly, and
with a startled groan, he sprang to his
feet, asking if he could chance his scat,
and taking a preferred chair. The sofa on
which lie had been seated was the one
found in Unger's room after his arrest.
Unger's face became
and when assisted to his cell he was almost
in a fainting condition. Inspector Byrnes
then told Uuger he would be near at hand
when he was ready to talk, and when the
inspector returned from supper Unger had
asked to see him. Again Unger was brought
to Byrnes" room, where all the bloody to
kens confronted him. "I want to tell the
whole truth about the business." he said to
the chief. He then told his story, which
was taken in writing:
I live at No. 22 Ridge street. I have known
August Bohle siuce November, 188 G. I first
mot him at my saloon. No. :J4 tildiridire street,
where be had called in answer to no adver
tisement which I had put in tho Sumks Zei
tuug for a partner. We could not agree upon
terms, aud I subsequently gave up the busi
ness at that number. I went to live at 22
Uidg-e street. A shore time afterward August
came to live with me, the arrangement being
that he was to pay me half the tent, which
$7.50 per month, aud one-third of the house
hold expenses. On the nig-ht of Jan. 20, 1887,
my son Edward left the house, leaving Bohle
and m>solf: in the rooms. We remained talk
ing and reading- until about 9:30. Buhle was
a very powerful man, and was swearing
about his nard luck. He called me a d
. I told him I was no such
thing, ana put up my hand to shove him
away. He then struck me on the neck with
his flst and ki.OJked me down. I sprung to my
feet and attempted to strike him with a poker
which I had in my hand. Bohle grabbed the
poker from my land, and, at the samo time,
he seized a knife from the table and ran after
me. 1 ran to the bedroom. He fol
lowed me. I picked up a hammer
from a chest under the bed. He made
another lunge at me with the knife,
and I wnrded it off. recivinp a slight cut in the
hand. I then struck him with the hammer.
He stag-gered and 1 followed him up and
I struck him again with the hammer, the ham-
I mer sinking into the skull as far as the han
dle. He staggered ntid fell back on the sofa
dead. This occurred about 10 o'clock p. m.
Expecting my son home every moment and to
avoid my son seeing what had happened, 1
took the body from the sofa aud put it on the
lloor close by the wall. I then took Bohle's
i sleeping cot, placed it on its side before him
and. leaning it against the wall, covered the
ends with some clothes. My son scon came

in the bedroom. "Where's Augustine?" he
tisked. '"He's gone out," said I. On Friday. Jan.
21, as soon as my boy left the bouse for his
work, I went out to i>uy a rubber bag to put
the body in. I was unnble to get the bag and
bought two yards of rubber clhtu at 80 cents
per yard. I bought a butcher's saw for 90
cents. I drank much whisky and got b ack to
the house at 9 a. m. I spread the rubber
cloth on the floor and laid the body upon it.
I then started to cut him up. I first cut the
head from the body and then laid aside and
wrapped it in a paper and a part of his
clothiujr. I then cut both logs off and, I
think, the left arm close to the shoulder. I
then look Bohie's trtmk. The trunk
was too short and I cut off tho feet
and put them in the truuk. I then put the
body on ton of the legs and, I think, the arm j
on top o? the body. 1 took part of the clothes
of the deceased aud some paper, wiped the
floor with them raid then put them on top of
the body in the trunk. I locked the trunk
and lashed it with a rope. I then left my

the best I could, locking the door, taking the
head under my arm, which was then wrapped
in clothing belonging to Bohle, and also some
newspapers. I went to the Grand street
ferry, went in the forward part of the ferry
boat, leaned over the front railing- looking
into the water, and when the boattrot midway 1
into the river I dropped the head and clothing!
into the water. 1 assumed that the paddle
wheel struck it. I then went to the house of
Henry Siearel, 205 Throop avenue,
and, learning that Siegel was sick,
1 told his wife that August Bohle had gone to ]
Chicago the night before. I then returned to |
njy house, arriving there about ;i o'clock in
the afternoon, and between 6 and 6 o'clock
the same afternoon, and with the assistance
of an Italian whom I met in the street and
gave him a quarter, I took tbe trunk to a
saloon en Grand street, and asked permission
to leave it over nig-ht, which was grauted. T
called for it on Saturday morning about 9
o'clock and brought it out on the sidewalk. I
gave a carman 30 cents to take it to the sa
loon of Henry Beuze, No. 355 Kent avenue,
Brooklyn. I got permission from Benze to
leave the trunk there a few mlnute3 while I
went to Westcott's express office. I told the
expressman where he was to call, and re
turned to Beoze's store. I got some mucilage
and put this

Pittsbcro. Pa.. Jan. 30.— Clark's court,
a retreat for Italians on Seventh avenue,
was a scene of a riot this evening in which
four men were seriously stabbed. Tha !
trouble was caused by Michael Catalonia re- !
fusing two unknown Italians the privilege
to sleep at his place. The strangers went
next door, where a christening was in
progress and told of Catalonia's inhospit
able treatment. When the hitter came in to
participate iv the festivities he was up

one struck him. This was the signal for a

A DEVII.rSU i'LOT
By Anarchists to Iflow Dp Their
Friends to Save Theui the Disgrraee
of Being Hanged.
Chicago, Jan. 301— Police Capt. Schaack
in an interview to-Uay admitted that he had
been for over a fortnight investigating what
appeared to be aij* anarchist plot to save
Spies and his fellow conspirators from death
on the gallows, "v^thin a month there has
been a marked 're-rival -of interest in the
anarchist meetings", in the;., city,
and " the • efforts iof the <K^flngs'
to keep track of the proceedings
have redoubled. As a result Capt. Schaack
came into possession ot a drawing 1 , which
was recognized as the basement plan of the
jail and criminal court building. It was
accurate in every particular. Even the
sewers and waste pipes were located. Base*
ment plans of the building on Clark street
extending to the jail alley were also shown.
From certain of these buildings lines were
drawn which met in the center of the
jail yard. Investigation showed the
basements, and indicated those for rent or
of which the leases could be purchased.
Capt. Sctmack : -inquiry led to the theory
that the lines centering in the jail yard rep
resented possible or projected tunnels.
Negotiations had been entered into for the
lease of one basement by prospective shoe
dealers, who stipulated for the division of
the basement by a : close partition
separating the front from the back.
Boxes were to . be delivered and
taken from the rear entrance.
A close watch has been kept, but without
result, and hopes of capturing' the conspira
tors have been abandoned. "Capt. Schaack
believes the design was to cheat the gallows
by blowing up the. condemned anarchists,
and with them the ameers delegated to con
duct the execution. If the tuuiels were
' designed to enable the anarchists to escape,
the lines would not reach to the jail yard,
but rather to the jail itself. . : •

. Belfast, Jan. 30.— There was terrible
rioting in the Petershill, Carrickhill and
Shankhill districts of this city last night.
The trouble originated through soldiers be
longing to the West Surrey regiment in
sulting a number of Catholic civilians.
The latter retaliated by stoning the soldiers,
many of whom were injured. This was
followed by wholesale arrest, over one hun
dred persons being placed in the lock-up.
A constable engaged in this duty was seri
ously injured by the excited crowd. Finally
military pickets were called out and quiet
was restored. This evening the rioting was
renewed, and many persons received gun
shot wounds and a large number of others
were more or less bruised by being struck
by stones. The town is now quiet.
HOW IT ORIGINATED.
Altogether fifty rioters have been ar
rested. The trouble originated on Satur
day night in a row between Protestants
and Catholics. The arrival of the police
incensed the mob and led to a free use of
revolvers and stones. The police were
compelled to fire for their own protection.
The mayor and other authorities did their
best to prevent a renewal of the rioting to
night, but without success, although to
night's affrays were small compared with j
those on Saturday. Only three persons
were arrested to-night. The outbreak to
night was caused by the appearance
of two constables who gave evidence before
the riots investigation commission. The
constables were roughly handled, and re
inforcements had to ha called out. Some
prisoners were taken and the crowd tried
to rescue them, when the police were again
uuutpeucu 10 ure lnuTiieir ueiense. One j
constable was severely wounded and was j
sent to an infirmary. The others who were
injured were taken to their homes.

Music was crowded to-night in response to
the call of the Central Labor union for a
mass meeting, to express their disapproval
of the acts of Archbishop Corrigan in sus
pending Rev.Dr.McGlynn from St.Stephen's
Catholic church for alleged insubordination
in speaking at public gatherings. Patrick
Crowe was . elected chairman. Henry
George was among those present on the
stage. Ten cents admission had been paid
by over 3.000 persons, and a num
ber paid Si each for seats in the
private boxes. Mr. Crowe, in . assuming
the chair, V drew a comparison between
Father McGlynn. who had served the poor
faithfully on a salary of SSOO a year, and
the" lord in \ the archbishop's palace. He
concluded with' the sentiment of Daniel
O'CouneJl: "Give us all the religion you
like from Home, butjno politics," and this
seemed to -'; be the -tone of the meeting
throughout. The gist of the resolutions is
contained in the following:
While freely reco=-nizinjT the ri*bt of every
citizen, be he layman, priest or bishop, to par
ticipate by voice and vote in ail public matters,
we reseat any attempt of any ecclesiastical
authority, : in or out of . the United States,
to drag 1 religion Into politics and to coerce its
mlui»ters iv the exercise of the rights of citi
zenship as a violation of- that principle of
the absolute separation of church and state
that is, and ever has been, one of the chief
bulwarks of American liberty.
- A protest was entered against Dr. Mc-
Glynn' s deposition and his summons taßonie
and support of the deposed priest is pledged."
Henry George spoke at some length, dwell
ing on the claim that t Dr. : McGlynn'sMand
theories were not in conflict with the tenets
of the Catholic church, and ; that -he : had
not been deposed because he took part in
polities, but because he took -, the : side op- 1
posed by ; the"archbishop. He was vocifer

HAPPY AND CONTENTED.
The Hopeful Condition of the Osaje
Tahxequah, Indian Territory, Jan. 30.
—Mr. Johnson, of the Osage nation, has
been interviewed in regard to the condition
and progress of the Osage .Indians. He
gives a glowing account of the rapidity
with which they are becoming . civilized,
and how fast they are taking hold of the
white man's ways. He says it is impossible
for the Osages to be paupers, for every
head of an average family of six persons,
draws Si, 000 a year annuity. This is
simply the interest on their invested funds.
A large portion of them have large farms
and plenty of stock; in fact, some of them
are getting wealthy. They have adopted a
code of laws similar to that of the
Cherokees, and these laws are exe
cuted in good shape. They are
somewhat exercised just ..now over
the bill that has passed congress to divide
their land in severalty. but they are greatly
in hopes that the president will veto the
bill. They have sent to Washington a
strong protest against the measure, citing
divers tribes that have tried this experi
ment, showing in many instances they
have become paupers and wanderers upon
the face of the earth. They refer with
much emphasis to the Wyandottes, who
tried this plan of alloting lacds and became
beggars, and at least had to be given a
reservation on which to live. Mr. Johnson
says twenty years ago the. enemies of the
Indians hooted at the idea of the Osage
ever becoming anything but. a band of rov
ing nomads, making raids occasionally
upon the whites, committing depredations, j
etc., but to-day finds them a peaceful peo- i
pie with plenty of their own, happy and '
contented, with a constitution and laws
well executed, after the fashion of their
white brothers. ' All they ask is to be let
alone and tint their treaties be observed,
and they will solve what the white people
call a problem, and show to the world that
Indians can become civilized.
ROBBERS KU-N DOWN.
Ihe Success of Detectives nd
ISloodtaouiuls In Texas.
Albuquerque, X. M., Jan. 30. — Two
detectives, accompanied by four determined
men, started with bloodhounds in pursuit
I of the gang of train robbers who have been
— • — —
j operating in this vicinity for the past six
i months. News reached here this morning
tiiat the robbers had been overtaken and a
desperate encounter at close range had en
sued, and that the detectives and prisoners
would arrive this morning by special
train. The robbers were tracked into Hell's
Canyon, near Belen station, eighty miles
south of here, and when the robbers found
they we'-e surrounded they prepared for a
fight, aud made a bloody defense at close
range. The robbers proved to be four in
number and well armed. The detectives
demanded a surrender, which was answered
by a volley of lead from the robbers, aud
then a regular battle commenced. The de
tectives and party were too many for them,
however, and iv the capture Hardy Foster
was killed, but after being shot
he lived long enough to make a
confession implicating the whole party.
Two others were captured, the fourth mak
ing his escape. One ot those captured
proved to be Charles Ross, who murdered
Marshal McGure in this city last Novem
ber and subsequently broke jail. The name
of the other robber is Leslie Boir, a native
of Weatherford. Tex. Both men are now
in jail, which is surrounded by a sheriff's
posse. Lynching is favored aud likewise
A Vcrituble Wolf-Boy.
Some natives traveling by some unfre
quented part of the jungle in the Buland
shahr district were surprised to see a small
boy 5 or 0 years old crawling about on
hands and feet. On drawing near they
were amazed to see the boy disappear
quickly within the interior of a'large hole,
which, on closer inspection, tinned out to
be the dwelling-place of some wild beast.
They reported the occurrence to the magis
trate sahib of Bulandshalir. who dispatched
messengers to the spot with instructions to
light a lire at the mouth of the cave. This
was done, aud on the blinding fumes mak
ing their way into the farthest corner of
the hole a snarling she- wolf sprang forth
with a bound. A moment later the boy,
too, came forth, when he fell an easy prey
to those intent on securing him. On con
veying him to the magistrate the boy was
found to be speechless, imbecile, and as
near an approach to an animal as a human
being can possibly be. Vegetable food was
offered to him, but this he refused, and it
was only when meat was placed before him
that he would eat. In the orphanage he
soon learned to walk upright, partake of
vegetable food, and to wear clothing. All
attempts to teach him to speak have been
fruitless, and he is void of ordinary reason,
though not altogether unintelligent.
New Style Steamboat Hull.
For twenty years L. P. Rider, of Pitts
burg, has been making experiments with the
object of increasing the speed of vessels and
lessening their draft by a change in the for
mation of the hull. At last he has con
structed a boat with which he will make a
test as soon as the river is free from ice.
Engineers pronounce his theory a correct
one. The, boat, which is thirty-six feet
long, is known as the "concave bottom,"
the hull being built in a right and left hand
spiral form from the bow to the middle
section. The conformation of the hull is
such as to. displace the water in a manner
closely approximating to the "wave-line"
theory, beginning at the cutwater. The
displacement is accomplished gradually
until the center of the boat is reached,
when the reverse action of displacement
begins. The concave beginning where the
convex ends. The greater the speed the
greater the lifting power, the boat rising on
the water, and consequently moving with
greater speed without any increase of

Washington-, Jan. — The railroad
attorney bill, which, by a vote of the sea
ate, was yesterday buried deep in the
calendar, but which, by the persistency of
Senator Beck, was restored to the position
of "unfinished business," will probably
suffer no further postponement except for
the regular appropriation bills. It will
come up at 2 o'clock to-morrow, but will
give place to the sundry civil bill, and if
not brought to a vote without much f urthet
discussion is likely to be pushed aside later
in the week by the Indian and military
academy appropriation bills. Beyond this
no forecast of the business of the weekan
the senate will be made. The Re
publican caucus has already began
the work of outlining the "order oi
business" for the rest of the session,
but so many measures are prepared for po
j sitions at the head of the list that the task
i proves to be a difficult one. Another cau
cus on the subject will soon be had, and
. meanwhile the senate will devote its spare
moments to miscellaneous matters on the
calendar. . Save the possible reopening oi
the tariff question by the friends of "Mr.

Our War Footing:. ;
Columbus, 0., Jan. 30.— 1n Northern
Ohio there is much excitement over the
possibility of a war with Canada. Gow
Foraker is constantly receiving letters from
patriotic citizens asking leave to raise home
militia companies. In connection with,
this a United States army man has revealed
a fact hitherto unpublished. During the
discussion of the Canadian troubles the war
department at Washington ascertained
minutely the strength of the militia in every
state, and requested from the Ohio authori
ties information as to the number of troops,
their arms and the time in which the?
could be concentrated at Cleveland in cas*
: of an attack on the Canadian frontier.

The Cowboy as he Is.
The cowboys haye — to use their own
phrase— "taken " a tumble to themselves,"
writes George Anderson in the Tomah
(Wis.) Enterprise. Time was, and not so
very long ago either, that when the cow
boys received their pay after the "round
up," they felt in duty bound to go to Miles
City and '-blow it in" at the gambling dens,
saloons, and other disreputable places.
"Cow-punching" is at best a very tough;
business, and full of risks to life and limb;
and pay is small and by no means adequate,
and alter the "round-up" there follows a
long period of enforced idleness, during
which they are given food and lodging only
by the ranch owner. The average cowboy
was wont to turn up after his semi-annual
spree with a very large head and not a cent
in his pocket. Of late, however, the boys
have, as I have said, taken a tumble to
themselves and are saving their money.
So common has the economical spirit be
come among them that Mile? City has seen
this year the quietest season in its history.
Most of the cowboys look upon their com
ing to Montana to herd cattle as the mis
take of their lives. The glowing stories of
thrilling adventure and sudden wealth of
the cowboy's life which are common in the
East are in most eases responsible for their
entering the guild, but the reality is quit©
a different matter. Many of the economi
cal ones have been enabled by their savings
to return to their eastern homes.
People who have not beeu through the
bad lands have but a faint conception of
the utter desolation and worthlessness of a
cowboy's home. He is roasted in summer
and frozen in winter. The lands can
never be used for anything but grazing, and
the distances are therefore something im
mense. One peculiarity of the country
makes rapid riding a very difficult, not to
say dangerous, undertaking. The earth is
so friable that a tiny watercourse will
speedily cut for itself a deep gully, or
or, "coolie. :? as it is called, the depth of which,
when tilled with snow is entirely problemat
ical. A horseman who rides with a cow
boy's reefdessnes may suddenly find himself
at '. the bottom of a six or eight foot coolie
■ with his horse on top of him, and no way
of getting out— he happens to be still
alive— .save tunneling up to the head of the
stream through the snow. , Then one of
your broncho's feet is as likely as not to
sink suddenly two feet down into a coyote's
hole when he is going at a furious pace.
Result: His leg snaps off like a pipe-stem,
and you are shot through the air to a point
far beyond and picked up more dead than
alive. The water is generally bitter with
alkali and scorches your throat as you
swallow it; there is little to eat, and that is
hard to get. , •
