TIIE POSTAL INQUIRY
OFFICIALS WHO ARE PROMINENT IN
Wynne ana Driitow of the Post Of
fice Department How Two Former
Newspaper Men Became Central
Figurea In the Examination.
Two of the central figures iu the in
vestigation into the affairs of the post
office department, Robert J. Wynne,
first assistant postmaster general, and
Joseph L. Bristow, fourth assistant tc
Fostniastor CJeneral I'ayne, were for.
merly newspaper, men.
Robert J. Wynne, who is credited
with having started the inquiry Int(
the alleged postal frauds, was ap
pointed to his present responsible pos
by President Roosevelt lu November,
1902. lie was then one of the lest
known and most experienced newspa
per correspondents at the national cap
ital, having had u journalistic career
in Washington of over twenty years.
The only previous otiice he had ever
held was that of private secretary to
Charles Foster, secretary of the treas
ury in the Harrison administration,
and at that time Mr. Wynne was
urged for the post of assistant secre
tary of the treasury.
Mr. Wynne is a native of New York
and is lifty-one years old. He was ed
ucated iii the public schools and later
learned telegraphy in Philadelphia,
finally going to Washington. His first
newspaper work was on the Cincinnati
Gazette under lleneral Henry V. Boyn
ton, who trained him as a Washington
At the close of Secretary Foster's
administration Mr. Wynne became the
correspondent of the New York Press,
which position he retained until he
went into the- post office department.
His principal writings are on the tariff,
financial and economic subjects. At
the time of his appointment he was
president of the Gridiron club, and he
is also a member of the Army and Na
vy club and of the Ixyal Legion. Mr.
Wynne's oldest son is a captain in the
marine corps and served with distinc
tion in Cuba, the Philippines and
Joseph Little Bristow, who has active
charge of the Investigation said to
have beeu ordered by President Roose
velt into the alleged frauds iti the
postal service, has 1hoii fourth assist
ant postmaster general since 1807,
when he was appointed to that posi
tion by President McKinley. Up to
JOSEPH Xi. BEISTOW.
that time Mr.- Bristow' a career had
beeu confined to Kansas, where he
had goue from Kentucky, his native
Btate, when eighteen years old.
After graduating from Baker univer
sity, Baldwin. Kan., he was elected
clerk of Douglas county, but his nat
ural bent was for newspaper work,
and in 18!)0 he purchased the Salina
Republican and five years later acquir
ed the Ottawa Herald. He was pri
vate secretary to Governor Morrill for
two years and secretary of the Repub
lican state committee from 18U4 to
When Major McKinley, then govern
or of Ohio, made a visit to Kansas in
1S94 Mr. Bristow accompanied the
Buckeye governor on the special train
provided for the tour. Mr. McKinley
and Mr. Bristow became well acquaint
ed, and the latter developed into an
enthusiastic supporter of the late pres
ident in the campaign of 1S9G. IIo
was a delegate to the national conven
tion that year, and it is a matter of
political history that Kansas was the
first northern state to declare for Mc
Kinley, antedating the action of Ohio
in that regard.
When the terrible condition of the
postal business in Cuba became known
President McKiuley and Postmaster
General Smith designated Mr. Bristow
to visit the Island and investigate the
situation. He was in Cuba from the
middle of May, 1900, to the beginning
of the following July, during which
time he made a thorough overhauling
of the postal affairs of the island. On
his report were based the prosecution
and conviction of several of the per
sons concerned in the affair.
The present fourth assistant post
master general has in charge the regu
lar Inspection force of the department,
some 200 men, who go through the rec
ords of every money order office at
least once a year, inquire into depreda
tions upon the mails and serve as a
check upon postmasters. They are to
the postal service what traveling au
ditors are to railroad systems. Mr.
Bristow's hatred, of dishonesty, as a
cardinal principle of his philosophy,
has been characterized in all his man
agement of this branch of the service,
which has been maintained at a high
standard of discipline and accurate ac
counting. Mr. Bristow is forty-two

MINDORO'S WHITE RACE.
Expedition to Ascertain. Whether
One Exttta In the Philippines.
The United States government pro
poses to run down the story of the ex
istence of a race of good looking and
energetic whites in the mountains of
the island of Mindoro, in the Philip
pines, says Harper's Weekly. It op
pears that an expedition has been or
ganized to penetrate iuto the interior
of Mindoro and find out whether such
people exist there. The story about
them has been obstinately persistent.
The best version of it seems to be
based on the report of Manuel Castro,
a Filipino, to one Lieutenant Lorenzo
de Clairmont. Castro claims to have
visited this white tribe, which, he says,
has lived in the Philippines since long
before the Spaniards came there and
centers in a town of 20,000 inhabitants,
lie says that the members of the tribe
are warlike and have effectually dis
couraged intrusion on their privacy by
Spaniards, though they have dealings
with trading Filipinos. The men are
described as fair hajred and blue eyed
and the women as surprisingly hand
pome. They live in well kept homes,
are fond of athletic sports and know
agriculture and some of the arts.
Lieutenant de Clairmont's name does
not apiear in the army register for
1902, but if there is such an officer in
the Philippines who has a well inform
ed native friend Castro and if Castro
is a truthful person and knows where
of he speaks there may be au interest
ing Item of ethnological news coming
from Mindoro, which will at least be
useful to the makers of comic opera.
There was a recent story that certain
companies of Isolated Jews hail exist
ed as Jews for centuries in western
China, aud on investigation it turned
out to be true.
A DRAMA OF THE CLINIC.
How Dr. I.orens's Prompt Action
Saved Hoy Patient's Life.
While Professor Adolph J. Lorenz
was operating on the club foot of an
eight-year-old boy, Allan Nichols, at the
City hospital in Rochester. N. Y., he
noticed a change In the appearance of
the skin on the foot and. turning quick
ly, saw that the ansvsthetic had been
too strong and that the boy had
stopped breathing, says the New York
Evening Journal. Without a moment's
hesitation he stopped work and, wav
ing aside the attendants, began to re
store respiration by artificial means.
Although at one time he feared his ef
forts would prove unavailing, he con
tinued until the little chest heaved
again and the lad was full- restored.
The case was such a difficult one
and the surgeon was obliged to use so
much of his strength that he was work
ing barefooted fn order that he might
not slip on the polished lloor. As he
crushed and manipulated the deformed
foot he explained the process to the
largo number of physicians assembled.
Without losing his iron nerve for a
second, he quickly seized the boy's
arms and proceeded with artificial
respiration. Steadily and methodically
he worked for at least a minute, and
then he murmured:
"He is gone."
Still ho, did not cease his efforts, but
rather increased the rapidity of his
movements. An attendant brought an
oxygen tank, aud fully three minutes
after the bo3's breathing had stopped
the great surgeon dropped the little
arms and, turning to the silent onlook
ers, said, without a change of tone:
"The little lad is all right now."
DREDGING MANILA HARBOR.
Interesting; Relies Fished Vp by u
The great hydraulic dredger now at
work filling the section of the harbor
at Manila that is to be reclaimed has,
since it begun operations, brought some
queer objects to the surface, but noth
ing more interesting or valuable than
an old quadrant brought up a few days
ago, says the Manila Times. The old
nautical instrument bore the date of
1G03 and was in a perfect state of
preservation. It was made of gun
metal, and was evidently lost by ona
of the ancient galleons some time in
the seventeenth century. It was turned
over to Engineer Pope, who had It
cleaned and who counts it a great
Before the big dredger was started
a receptacle for any heavy objects
taken up by the pumps was fitted up,
and some very Interesting articles have
been dropped into it and saved by the
workmen. Many old shells and cannon
ball3 have been found and a number
of old ship's fittings have also been
raised. The dredger Is working in the
neighborhood of an old anchorage, and
it is expected that during the progress
of the extensive harbor work many
things of interest and possibly of value
will be brought to the surface.
Extent of Foreisrn Travel.
The indications are that foreign
travel will this summer exceed that of
any previous season. Sixty-seven sail
ings a month of first class passenger
steamships will be made from New
York for European ports. This Is pro
vision for SG.000 passengers between
April and September. An expert esti
mate put3 the amount paid for steam
ship fares at $31,000,000 and the ex
penditures in Europe at $70,000,000.

WORKED AS COWBOY
HOW LEWIS, THE AUTHOR, GOT HIS
KNOWLEDGE OF THE PLAINS.
Writer Who Is Said to Have Helped
Slake Tom Heed's Ilepntation as a
Wit For Years Rode the llaneea.
Ills Luteat Dook.
Alfred Henry Lewis, political writer
and author, whose new historical novel,
"Peggy O'Neal," is attracting attention,
has been in his time lawyer and cow
boy as well as literary man, and first
became widely known as a Washing
ton correspondent and writer of sketch
es of frontier life under the pea name
Mr. Lewis' career began in the legal
profession in Cleveland and wound
through the cattle ranges of the south
west, where he led the life of a cow
puncher for several strenuous j'ears.
Driven from his home in Cleveland in
search Qf a kindly climate, Mr. Lewis
took up his quarters in Arizona and for
years lived the outdoor life of the state,
lie rode with the cattle on the ranges,
learned all the arts of the cow puncher
and won back 'health. There also he
met the "old cattleman" and many oth
ers like him and made them famous in
his "Wolfville" stories. He is probably
the only. man who has written of the
cowboy as he really exists. Some of the
most interesting stories of Lewis are
those which have to do with his experi
ence on the plains. There is hardly a
section' of Arizona and New Mexico
with which he Is not familiar and but
few places in the Texas Panhandle
that he has not crossed at some time or
other with cattle or freight wagons.
Lewis first attracted attention in
"Washington as correspondent of the
Kansas City Times. Bitter and sar
castic in his criticisms of public men,
he managed to make himself heartily
disliked. On one occasion his vitriolic
pen caused him to be challenged to
light a duel.
Prince Iturbide, at that time a fa
mous character around Washington,
had become incensed over a rather

sliarp attack of Lewis and sent a sec
ond to demand satisfaction. While ne
gotiations were going on it was discov
ered .that the Mexican nobleman had
Informed the police with the view that
nothing serious should result.
On learning this Lewis sent word to
the prince that if he ever met him on
the streets of Washington lie would
do whatever was necessary in the
dueling line with a club. It is said
that for several years Iturbide was not
to be seen on the streets of Washing
ton. According to several Washington
newspaper men, many of the witty
epigrams attributed to Thomas B.
Reed were originated by Lewis while
he was the correspondent of a Chicago
paper, and they claim that he did
more to achieve for Reed a reputation
for brilliancy and quick wit than the
statesman ever did for himself.
"In reading over the Congressional
Record." said a Washington corre
spondent, "one rarely finds any of the
bright flashes of wit that Reed is cred
ited with making, and it frequently
happened that after some particularly
apt remark had made its way east
ward from Chicago the correspondents
of the New York dailies would bo
sharply called to account for having
failed to note these bits of wit. To
these complaints the New York corre
spondents invariably replied that Reed
had said nothing of the sort, but they
were never able to make these denials
ns coming from Reed. He realized
that Lewis was aiding him to main
tain a reputation that would have been
Irksome to sustain by himself."
While Lewis has been hailed as the
successor of Bret Harte as the writer
of realistic tales of the west, he dif
fers widely from that author both in
method and result. He does not depend
upon pathos and as yet has not em
ployed tragedy, although ho doubtless
could deal artistically with cither ele
ment. Neither is reliance placed on
comedy. Rather there is a draft made
on all three, yet the pathos is only
suggested, the tragedy a background
a thread running through, at times
lost in the web of the story.
Mr. Lewis has been described as a
H'riter who makes his readers see peo
ple, makes them hear his characters
talk and share their emotions. He does
not appeal to the heart so much as to
the appreciative and reasoning intelli
gence. "Feggy O'Neal" Is tho most preten
tious of his stories. It dels with times
and incidents hitherto left to cold and
pulseless historians. The book gives a
new light on "Old Hickory" and cer
tain events which had much to do with
the history of this nation. Of his other
books "Wolfville" and "Sandburrs"
have been the most favorably received.
