WASHINGTON, May 18.—The senate has

WASHINGTON, May 18.—The postoffice de
partment officials are experiencing consider
able trouble in deciding the long-drawn-out
contest over the St. Paul postmastership. The
papers in the case are now with the president
and ready for final consideration, but the de-"
partment has made no final recommenda
tion. The difficulty is that no one candidate
haa the unanimous indorsement of the Demo
crats of St. Paul. Each aspirant has his own
backing from his own faction. It is not be
lieved that the administration will allow the
matter to go unsettled until the end of the
session, and yet it is possible that Castle may
be the Incumbent of the office for some time
Congressman Kiefer today stated that
Treasurer Wagner is a candidate for the St.
Paul postmastership. He says that he has j
reliable information to that effect. Inquiry at j
the postoffice department, however, results in
information that no papers in Wagner's behalf
have yet been filed in the department.

WILD WEST TRAGEDY.
Discarded Lovers Ended Three Lives
TACOMA, Wash., May 18.—In Beaver
Prairie, Clallam county, in the dense forest,
seventy miles from a telegraph office, last
Tuesday, Charles Paul, of Wisconsin, killed
David McConchle and his wife, and then took
his own life. The tragedy happened at the
home of the McConchies. Paul was a dis
carded lover of Mrs. McConchie, who manied
McConchie last fall while Paul was away.
. As soon as Paul learned of the marriage he
wrote letters to her swearing he would kill
her and her husband. Charles Terwillinger
was examining his bear traps on the shore
of the lake on Tuesday, and saw a note pinned
to the door of a deserted cabin, which gave
directions to look in a certain place in the
house for a letter. This letter was addressed
to Christian Crossklaus, and said Paul had
gone to kill Mr. and Mrs. McConchie, after
which he would take his own life. A party
was formed, and, reaching the shore of the
lake opposite McConchie's house, they found
McConchie's boat, and In it the dead body
of Paul. The body of Mrs. McConchie was
found on the floor of her home, her head near- |
ly severed from her body, and everything
showed that a fearful struggle had taken place
between the woman and the man.
Young Indian Killed for Alleged
SEATTLE, Wash., May 18.—In jail at Ju
neau, waiting trial, on the charge of murder,
is Chief Ye Teetleeh, the Tybee of the Hoonan
Indians, a small tribe of some hundred mem
bers occupying Chikakoff islands, about 100
miles southerly from Juneau. The offense with I
which the old chief is charged is the murder
by torture of his nephew, whom he accused
of witchcraft. The chief had a disease affect
ing his right leg. He dreamed that his
nephew had bewitched him, and on the
strength of this, he proceeded to inflict pun
ishment due the crime. The victim's knees
were bent close back, and in this position
he was bound tightly to a tree. An iron band
a quarter of an inch thick was then placed
around his face, sinking into the nose, and
covering the eyes, and this was also made
fast to the tree, so that he was unable to
move his head in any direction. He was left
in this position to starve to death. He lived
five days. He was twenty years of ag*.

Wanted to Execute Competitor Pris
oners Without Delay.
NEW YORK, May 18.—A special to the Her
ald from Havana says: The action of Consul
General Williams, protesting against the meth
ods of trials of the prisoners of the American
schooner Competitor, adopted by the Spanish
authorities, is worth more than a passing
mention. Within three hours after the court
martial closed its members sent to Admiral
Navarro a sealed verdict which was imme
diately opened and approved by the naval
chief. The sentences of all five prisoners to
death, in accordance with the verdict, were
signed at once, and preparations were made
to have the men shot. Neither Consul Gen
eral Williams nor any attache of his office
was present at the courtmartial, nor was he
allowed to see the prisoners until after the
trial had closed. Naturally he laid the whole
case before the state department at Wash
ington, by wire, early and promptly received
instructions as energetic. When these ar
rived he went directly to the palace where I
a stormy interview with Captain General Wey- I
ler occurred. The captain general told the j
consul general that if the men had been con
victed as the latter supposed, they would
! most certainly be shot at sunrise the follow
' ing morning, despite any protest the United
| States might make.
"If you shoot them." said Mr. Williams,
"my government instructs me to cose its con
sulate here and demand my passports, as it
shall most certainly hold you and your gov
ernment responsible, should these prisoners
be executed before our protest be given due
When Consul General Williams bowed him
self out of the captain general's presence and
drove back to his office, the excitement that
followed at the palace became almost lndes
i cribable. The president and judges of the
j supreme tribunal of the island, the chairmen
I of the leading conservative parties, and the
\ managing director of the Spanish bank wore
| called into consultation by Captain General
; Weyler end Admiral Navarro. The majority
! of those rprsorages advised the authorities
I to suspend the pxpout'on pending higher'in
| structions from Madrid. Gen. Wey'er gad no;
! that if th* men were not executed he would
resign. He so telegraphed the Spanish min
| istry. it is reported. In the meantime, it ap
| pears, the United States was. through Mln
' ister Taylor, bringing pressure to bear also
at Madrid. Orders-came from Spain to sus
pend all proceedings, and directing the cap
tain general and Admiral Navarro to transmit
all documents in the case to Madrid, for
consideration there by the supreme military
] and naval council and cabinet. Gen. Weyler,
It Is said, also received a message telling him
to await a more opportune moment to give
up his command, as for diplomatic reasons
the government could not afford at this
crisis to have him suddenly resign. Consul
General Williams had won. The transfer of
the case to Madrid will give the prisoners at
least a month or six weeks' respite.

WASHINGTON, May 18.—The supreme court

court of Kansas, reversed the decision of the
lower court. The opinion was delivered by
Justice Shiras. This case was brought on a
note for $1,500 and interest, but its decision
involves the constitutionality of the mortgage
redemption law of Kansas of 1893, and is
far-reaching in effect. The case was twice
heard in the state supreme court. The opin
ion in the last hearing was in Beverly's favor,
holding the act in question to be applicable
and valid in ease of contracts made before

The [•clps Will Culminate With the
Grand Entry of the Czar on
MOSCOW, May 18.—The arrival of the czar
and czarina this afternoon may be said to I
inaugurate the festival season in celebration j
; of the coronation, for which the city and j
the- whole empire have made months of prep- I
aration. Their majesties arrived In their :
| special train at the Smolensk station. The
! station is about half-way between the Krem- ,
lln and the Petrovskl palace, which is to be
i the abiding place of the czar until the tri- ',
umphal entry .into the city on Thursday. The
rain was pouring down in torrents as the
train arrived, but this seemed to have no
effect on the loyal ardor of the people and
they were gathered at the station to the
I number of several thousand to accord a
; greeting to their sovereign and to catch a
! glimpse of his august person. The streets
; were full of mud, and the countless flags
i and streamers fluttered fitfully in a gusty
An imperial pavilion had been erected at
; the station., into which the imperial party
j stepped from their train, and from which
they emerged into the equipages which car
: ried them to the Petrovski palace. The
' pavilion was carpeted and was bright with
! floral decorations. A squad of the czarina's
j regiment of Uhlans was the guard of honor
!on the platform. The Grand Duke Sergius,
uncle of the czar and governor general of
! Moscow, with a brilliant suite of officers,
' awaited the arrival of the imperial party at
the station. The appearance of the train
was the signal for an outburst of great cheer
ing,and the military band played a regimental
march as the train entered the station and
the czar left his carriage. The czarina, when
I slit entered the imperial pavilion, was at
tired in a white tulle dress, which was
, adorned with silver spangles, and she was
presented with a bouquet. Their majesties
descended the carpeted stairs from the pa
vilion, entered a carriage and were driven
to the Petroviski palace, escorted by a cav
alry officer of the highest rank.
The passage of the party through the streets
was greeted with grtat enthusiasm, the route
being lined with great crowds of cheering
spectators. One of the special features of
the present events In Moscow is the doing
away with the custom of employing, special
! constables in citizens' dress to guard the
! route of the czar's coming and going from the
| city. On general occasions the route of the
csar's progress is guarded by a double line
of military, a double rank of swwn eiviliausi,
the ordinary- police in uniform, the police of
the defense department and the detective po
'■ lice. The doing ay/ay with the sworn civ
■ ilian ranks will give better opportunity for the
I czar's subjects at large to witness his progress
to the coronation.
Preparations for the grand entry into the
city are not yet completed, but they are far
advanced, and on all sides are evidences of
the confusion and hurry of the last touches
i for the great celebration. The character of
the preparations is most imposing. The pal
ace of the Grand Duke 1 Sergius Is especially
magnificent. This is situated upon the Tver
skaja street, along which the czar goes from
the Petrovska palace to the Kremlin on Thurs
Tverskaja street, being the czar's route,
has concentrated within its length much of
the preparation. The competition for posi
tion among those not officially provided for
has been unprecedented. Many nouses along
the street have been rented at high rates for
the whole year, merely to secure the lessee
a window for the procession on Thursday.
For single windows fabulous prices have be*>n
oftered, and many bitter disputes over points
for seeing the spectacle have already found
! their way into the courts. The street shows
' along its length many commodious pavilions,
j set aside for the lavored ones, all solidly
built, are they, and with the bulbed roofs
and towers characteristic of Russian archi
tecture. These pavilions are placed at the
intersection of Tverstaja street with the
broad highways that follow the course of the
various ramparts which have been built in
rings about the ancient city. The coloring
of all ■ these temporary structures is most
brilliant, in accordance with the Russian
taste, and is confined to the primitive colors
in broad stripes and splotches on roofs and
side walls. Great jron columns have also
been erected along the street's lengih for a
brilliant electric illumination. Electricity
is used for the first time in the illuminations
for a czar's coronation, and elaborate prepar
ations have been made by the authorities to
avail themselves of this agent. Nearly all
the public buildings have their complete out
lines traced by light wooden framework for
the support of the electric lights' and fairy
lamps, which show the architectural outlines
of the city traced in fire and light. The
walls of the Kremlin itself and the towers of
the buildings within it are thus outlined
against the night sky by electric lights and
by thousands of yards of gas pipe perforated
at short intervals for gas jets. Everywhere
the Russian flag is flying, especially con
spicuous being the yellow imperial banner.
Many of the pavilions and grand stands show
the woodwork elaborately carved. There are
numerous triumphal arches inscribed "God
Save the Czar," and nightly rehearsals of
the Illuminations of the public buildings and
of the Kremlin are taking place.

SECTION LINES AS HIGHWAYS.
Interesting; Series of Suits Over the
Question Will Be Brought in
YANKTON, S. D., May 18.—A series of in
teresting litigations is about to be commenced
I by the South Dakota authorities to test the
' validity of an act of the territorial legislature
! of 1871 by which all section lines are declared
j to be public highways, and the owners of
| adjacent land required to throw them open
!to the public as such. Until a short time
ago this law seems to have been overlooked,
the county commissioners making a practice
of purchasing right of way along section lines
j for use as roads. This expense and the cost
i of opening the roads has been a considerable
item in the past. The Yankton county com
missioners recently stumbled on the old stat
ute authorizing them to appropriate the nec
es&ary land for the roads without recompens
ing the owners and determined to enforce it.

KANSAS CITY, May 18.-News of the loss
of life and destruction of property by yester
day's cyclone In Kansas is slow in coming In.
What has been received makes It plain that
, previous estimates of the damage done w«-ro
, i none too high, and In fact may be added to
• ' when communication is contpletel] r.'oij»'i>ed.
[ Fully half a dozen towns were struck by tho
. twister, and the known d> ad arc seven. The
\ Injured number fully thirty, many of-whom,
j It Is feared, are fatally hurt. Itswil 11), a
. village on the Missouri Pacific in Hrown
. i county, seems to haw felt the brunt of the
Btcrm. But five houses are taid to have
been left standing there. The list of killed
at Reserve Is as follows:
Killed—D. W. Terhune, aged sixty; Ralph
■ Sweeney, aged nine years; Viola Phillips,
j four years; Mrs. John Rynder.
A special to the Star from Reserve, says:
; This town was almost wiped out of existence
( by yesterday's cyclone. Hardly a houso
remains standing, and wreckage is strewn
; everywhere. The whole population is home
-1 less, and great confusion prevails. Forty
buildings in Reserve alone were razed. The
confusion was indescribable. Darkness added
to the crash of fulling timbers, the cries of
the hurt and the almost deafening bias and
roar of the wind, struck terror to the hearts
. of all. After the storm had passed, those
! fortunate enouch to have escaped Its rav
ages set about helping the victims. All night
long they searched for the wounded and miss-
Ing, and lanterns could be seen durtlng here
I and there. The Injured are being well cared
The cyclone seems to have spent Its force
at Preston, Neb., where half of the buildings
aro reported wrecked and several people re
■ ported Injured, some of them dangerously.
