The secretary emphasized a great evi

Minnte Strategic Map
Reports received from various mili
tary sources this year show that sub
stantial progress is being made with
what is known as the progressive mil
itary map of the country. This is
big compilation made by the army en
gineers, and is intended to provide ulti
roately an accurate and detailed map
of strategic value of the entire coun
try. For a time it was considered by
some officers that the map should be
made in secret, and that no informa
tion of the work should be divulged
but it has now come e be pretty well
known that such a map is in course of
preparation, especially as all the com
manding generals of departments and
divisions have referred to the matter
and reported on advancement mad
The maps are in sections, of course,
and will be copied and filed at various
headquarters, besides being kept in
Washington. It will be possible to tell
of the character of the country, even
to the location of barns, buildings, etc..

and ihc character of the fields, so far
as it relates to military occupation. It

The Democratic County Ticket.
The democratic county ticket in the
pending campaign is conceded to be
one of the strongest in every sense of
the word which the party has ever pre
sented to the people of the county.
Cornelius Donovan, the candidate for
sheriff, is an ideal man for the office
and with so conspicuous and decided
advantages over his opponent on the
republican side, his election is already
admitted by those familiar with local
political conditions. John Schafer.
the nominee for county treasurer, is
one of the soundest and best known
men of Rock Island county. Having
some years ago conducted the same
office with eminent distinction and sat
isfaction, his record compares striking
ly with that of the candidate who sur
prised even his own party by capturing
the nomination again for the office in
the conduct of which he made a farce.
F. A. Gustafson, whom the democrats
have selected for the office of county
clerk, has proven his worth in many
positions of public trust in Moline.

when all over the county conies the

Mrs. Elizabeth Karner at Stouefari,
111., according to the Peoria Star, lost
her husband some years ago, that is to
say, ne ran away irom ner. sne lurne.i
all her effects into money and set out
in quest of him. She spent most of her
money, when the other day in Peters
burg, Ind., she came uion him face to
face, and grabbing him, yelled for as
sistance. The unfortunate man tried
to break away, whereupon the city
marshal arrested him. Lizzie wanted
him thrown into the penitentiary, be

took $600 belonging to her, but the
authorities refused to comply with her
In the meantime Karner succeeded in
making love to her to such an extent
that she abandoned all proceedings,

Riddle not only got gold, but he got
Winema for his wife. The young
couple lived in the gold diggings, and
the wife became weaned from her peo
ple. But she knew that if she showed
fills change or a love for ber husband
to her people fhey would kill ber.
As more gold lfelds were discovered,
more whites swarmfd across the lava
beds, and the Indians began to mur
der them. This incited the whites to
revenge, and a band or seventy live
men went ftoni California to punish
the Indians. After pursuing them for
a long while to no purpose they invit
ed the chiefs to meet them for the pur
pose of making a treaty. The invita
tion was accepted, and both parties
went Into camp near each other on
Ixst river. In the gray of the morn
ing of the proposed conference; u young
Modoe squaw, wi'Ai dothc-s torn and
feet bleeding, hurried into the white
camp and asked to see the leader. She
had walked nine miles over a rough
mountain trail to warn them that at
the conference they were to be mur
dered. Thi she had learned the night
before at the council lire.
The whites, impressed with the
truth of her story, determined to meet
cunning with cunniug. Going into aii
bush near the place of meting, the
Modocs fell into their'trap and but two
escaped with their lines. The squaw
who bore the iuforuwttioii was Wine
ma. Her people never 'learned that she
had saved the whites at their expense
or she would have died 'by torturu.
This massacre of lud&uis brought on
a war between the United States
tnups and the Modocs. General Can
by commanded the trooys, while the
Modocs fought under an ludUiu caJled

the same time calfing upon General
Can by. who was also to attend the
conference, to listen to her. When she
found they would not. she mounted her
pony and rode with them.
What followed idled the country
with horror. The meeting was an In
dian trap and resulted in a massacre.
General Can by was murdered. A blood
thirsty Indian. Scouchin, nttacked-Colo-nel
Meacham. Winema threw herself
upon the suvage and begged him to
spare her white IrieniKs life. Other
Indians xune up, and Winema ran
among them, turning their weapons
aside or knocking them upward.
A bullet s-truck Meacham senseless,
and a buck ran forward to dispatch
him. The squaw turned the weapon,
crying: "Him dead! No use to shoot!"
Scouchin tried to scalp Meacham, and
Winema grasped the knife. Scouchiu
struck her. Then she sbouted, "The
soldiers are coming!" This turned out
to be true, and iu another moment a
troop of cavalry dashed among the In
dians. Seeing among the other In
dians a sqtKiw, many' carbines were
aimed at ber. "No shoot me!' she
cried. "I .tried to save them!" Then
a man in the ranks recognized her and
"The man who harms her I'll kill!"
Such is the story of this woman's
work. Bj' her first warning she saved
seventy-live white men. Had thoso
to whom she gave her second warning
listened to ber she would have saved
a major general and a colonel in the
United States army. The penalty she
and ber husband paid for her fidelity
to the whites only remains to be seat
ed. On the day of the killing of Can
by and Meacham, Riddle, while riding
on horseback over the lava beds, was
shot from au ambush by an Iudian. 't
The three little children of Riddle and if
Winema were murdered while sleep- j f j

Winema, fleeing at night from her
tribe and her family, made her .way ,
across the lava beds to the govern-'

the loss of her husband and her chil

who had been .wounded by six bullets. :
But Wlnema's work was finished.
Her life had been lived. She had be
