Paul Morton, who yesterday was

of the late J. Sterling Morton, sec re
tary of agriculture in the Cleveland
cabinet, and was born at Detroit in

clerk in the Burlington office, and at

Concerning the national platform of
the republican party, adopted at Chi
cago. Chairman Cowherd of the dem
ocratic congressional committee said:
"Heretofore the republican party has
had a record for boldness. At Chicago
it established a record for timidity and
evasion. The platform is remarkable,
mainly, for what it does not say. The
labor situation is as acute as at any
time in our history, yet there i no
announcement in regard to it. There

Surely the country Is e ntitled at least
to know what' is to be tne future pol

pine plank does not disclose it.
"The tariff plank is an open strad
dle, to be used as a promise of reduc
tion of duties to the voters and a
pledge of their maintenance to the
manufacturers. Governor Cummins
says: "It justified the Iowa idea."
General Grosvc nor says: "It is a
stand-pat plank.' Chairman Payne
nays: "it leaves the question open.'
It was evidently not intended ss a
plank, but a trap.
"The platform says: "Our admin
istration of the great department of
the government has been honest." This
in the face of the notorious frauds
discovered in the postoffice depart
ment: the scandals in the land and
Indian bureaus which the secretary of
the inferior is concealing with so much
difficulty, and the forced adjournment
of congress in order to prevent any
investigation, must le taken either as
sarcasm or humor.
"The negro plank is the only hon
est plank in the platform it is in
famous. McKinley's noble utterances

Schlegel & Son. 22u West Second I
(Copyright. 1904. by C. B. Lewrls
I landed, in Russia twenty .wars ago
on strictly -lawful business to i look for
the heirs to some property in the west
ern part of the United States, , and my,
information led me direct to the city
of Narva. Before I had been in the
place two Lours the chief of police
called and det me kuow.that IVWSS con
He told me that Peter BogcST. whose
heirs I was seeking, had been strongly
suspected of nihilism before he died
and that u warrant would have beeu
served had he livd u day louger. This
was as good as telling me that I would
get into trouble if I prosecuted any in
quiries, but I foolishly determined to
leard the liuai in his den.
Thinking I might better carry on the
business from St. Petersburg.! I depart
ed for that city after a few days and
at once citlleduiou a luwyer. He was
sharp enough -to realize that I would
not have takeu the long journey -unless
the property was. of considerable value,
nnd without any beating around the
bush he told uie tlacit he would findtthe
heirs and put the matter through for
the sum of $.".U0U. This was rank' rob
bery, and I refused to submit to it,
and as a result soon discovered uhat no
luwyer would huve anything to-do with
the case at all.
Not only that, but I was soon sum
moned to the office of the chief of po
lice. He was very polite, but at the
same time it was easy to read his
hypoc risy: He first secured iossessiou
of my passport, which, he claimed,
needed some slight ameuduumt, and
then began to question me. He kept
me on the rack for three Ion? hours
and then had the impudeuco-to offer
me his band as I departed.
I went straight from his office to
that of a private detective jugency to
set Inquiries on foot. The superin
tendent eutercd Into the master with
considerable earnestness and :u:reHl to
dispatch u man to Narva that' evening
to secure the wished for information,
I returned to the hotel feeling rather
jubilant at outwitting the police, but
this state of feeliug did not lust long.
Within uu hour the superintendent of
the agency called to inform methat he
must drop the case, turning me off
with the exc use that he was too busy
to attend to it.
He had scarcely departed before the
proprietor of the hotel came to my
room and politely asked me to vacate
it He would not admit that It' was the
work of the police, but I hud no trou
ble In coming to that conclusion.
1 finally got rooms In a boarding
house after being refused tit every
other hotel, and tor a week the police
let me alone. I bad made the long jour
ney to find the heirs of Bogoff nnd
close a deal for the land. 1 had not
been provided with money to bribe any
one, nnd I must either defy the police
and work up the case stnirle' banded or
return and report u failure.
Being firmly convinced that Mrs. Bo
goff was in Narva, I secretly left the
capital for that town one night. Secur
ing rooms in a boarding house ufter
my arrival and disguising my personal
appearance to a considerable extent, I
prosecuted my Inquiries under one ex
cuse and another until I tit length dis
covered the woman. She was living in
her own bonne and in poor circum
stances and was rejoiced at the pros
pects of selling the land.
1 now had to give my ense away by
culling on notary to make out the pa
lters, and in less than half a day the
police were at my heels again. They
not only warned every notary tit Nar
va, but the widow was obliged to flee
the elty and go Into hiding.
Things might have stopped there had
I been n cod und placid man. When I
found the xlleo hounding me again I
lost my temper and gave the chief my
candid opinion of things in general and
of his own conduct In particular. As a
natural sequence I was promptly ar
rested, though just what the technical
charge was 1 never !earned.
I was taken to Jail nnd confined In a
cell with a man waiting trial for rob
bery. He seemed to bo a thorough
villain, but as he could not speak a
word of Kngllsh nor I a word of Rus
sian we hit It off by letting each other
Severely alone. As soon as Incarcerated
I asked to communicate with the Amer
ican minister, but was refused.
On the third day the chief of police
scut for me and asked me if I would
leave Russia If given my liberty. I re
plied In the negative and was returned
to prison. My threats that the matter
would be thoroughly sifted by our rep
resentative only made him smile, and
he quietly informed me that be would
keep me in prison fur the rest of my
life if I did not agree to his terms.
On the seventh day he sent for me
agate. I bud now changed my mind,
realising that I could even be sent on
to Silwria if the police so desired and
that there was no longer the slightest
hope of accomplishing my errand. I
therefore answered 1dm that I was
ready and willing to leave the czar's
nomtelons at a moment's notice, nnd an
hour hiter. in charge of four police offl
cers, I was on my way to a steamer
leavlnc port that night.
I was locked in a stateroom, forbid
den to hold communication with any
one and was not released from durance
vile until after twenty-four hours. I
found people of all nationalities on the
boat, but got no sympathy from any of
them. On the contrary, I was called
an idiot for my conduct, and all agreed
that I might have been packed off to
Siberia without any one "hot the. police
being the wiser. f. QUAD.
