Oil Geyser In the Gulf.
Captain Risk of tbo Mallory liner
San Jacinto, who arrived at New York
last week, reported the existence of an
oil geyser bubbling up through the wa
ters of the gulf of Mexico about 1-5
miles southwest of the Mississippi del
ta. For ten minutes his ship plowed
through a sea surface thick with crude
petroleum. It U thought that this phe
nomenon is connected with recent up
heavals in Texas oil wells.

Letter carriers Leaders Dismissed
Postmaster General Wynne announced Dec. 13 that he had dismissed
from the service J. C. Keller, president of the National Association of
letter Carriers, and Frank Cunningham, president of the National j
Association of Rural Free Delivery Carriers. This action, with Presi- 4.
dent Roosevelt's approval, means that tbe administration seeks to break
up every organized effort of government employees to secure legislation X
for increased pay or other betterments. It bad leeu charged by Con-
pressman Overstreet and other members that Cunningham had tried to X
prevent their re-election because they would not T
support tbe bill Increasing the pay of rural car- X
rlers. Tbe technical ground of Keller's dismissal J
was absence without leave, as tbe business of his X
cssociation took him away from tbe Cleveland j
postofflce. to which be was attached. In an In-
terview Fourth Assistant Postmaster (General J
Rrlstow said that if he fount! a carrier conlribut-
Ing money to defeat or elect any candidate for X
congress or toward the support of lobbyists
Washington, tbe one so contributing would le
discharged. Roth Keller ami Cunningham are in
Washington, where they continue to represent
their respective organizations.
Postmaster General Wynne in his annual re
port recommends that congress fix a rate of 3
cents a pound on packages not exceeding five
pounds mailed at tbe distributing postofflce of any
rural free delivery route for delivery to a patron of that route. Mr.
Wynne says tbat there has grown up a demand for tbe delivery of such
packages as groceries, dry goods, drugs, etc.. on an ordinary order to
the local merchant by postal card, telephone or otherwise, but tbat the
present rate of 1 cent an ounce is practically prohibitive.
GENERALSHIP OF BLACK HAWK SHOWN K
BY. INCIDENT IN WAR HE PROSECUTED
In a historical sketch of events in the
early Indian warfare in the I'uper Mis
sissippi valley the St. L-u'iis Globe
Democrat relates the following:
When the treaty negotiated at St.
Louis in November. 1S04. by Wiliam
Henry Harrison and the drunken chiefs
of the Sac and Fox tribe, had termi
nated In the inevitable war that might
have been postponed, but could never
have been averted, the Mississippi val
ley from the northern boundary of Mis
souri to the northern boundary of Wis
consin and Minnesota was harried by
red men and white. The ill-fated and
short-lived Black Hawk war terminated
in the massacre at Bad Axe. Wis., fol
lowing a strategic feat which called
forth the unstinted praise from Jef
ferson Davis, who had served by the
site of Abraham Lincoln. Zachary Tay
lor. Albert Sidney Johnston. Robert An
derson and Phil Kearney through the
"We were one day pursuing the In
dians when e came close to the Wis
consin river. Reaching the river bank
the Indians made- so determined" r.
stand and fought with such despera
tion that they held us in check. During
t'ais time the squaws tore bark from
Vha trees, with which they made little
shallops, in which they - floated their
papooses and other impedamenta to an
island, also swimming over the ponies.
As soon as this was acomplished. half
the warriors plunged in and swam
across, holding his gun in one hand
over his head and -swimming with the
other. As soon a3 they reached the
opposite bank they also opened fire up
on us, under cover of which the other
half slipped down the bank and swam
over in like manner. This was the
most brilliant exhibition of military
tactics that I ever witnessed a feat
of most consummate management and
bravery, in the face of an enemy of
greatly superior numbers. I never
read of anything that could be com
pared with it. Had it been performed
by white men it would have been im
mortalized as one of the most splendid
achievements in military history."
