BOSTON, March 28. The governor yes

claiming that it represented tL e features
of Samuel Adams, while others claimed
that it looked more like Washington. The
bust has stood in the state house for the
best part of a century. The commission's
report is to the effect that the weight of
evidence is in favor of George v ashing
ton aa the original, and they recommend
the substitution of Washington s name
for that of Adams.

DIGGING FOR BURIED TREASURE.
A Skeleton I'nearthed, But No Fay Dirt
Struck, So Far.
Middletown, N. Y., March 28. Five
miles down the Delaware river from Port
Jervis, and on the farm of Joseph Boslur,
of Moutague township, New Jersey, there
is a party of men at work digging for a
supposed hoard of virgin gold of the value
of several millions of dollars. An old and
decrepit woman who claims to have clair
voyant powers is directing the digging.
She told the diggers that deep in the earth
where they are now at work is a cave in
which ages agoa great Indian chief stored
immense goiden treasures, which have
never beeu disturbed, and that as a sure
indication that they were digging in the
right spot they would come upon the old
chieftain's skeleton a few feet below the
The Skeleton Was There.
Sure enough, it is said, the diggers did
unearth a skeleton near the place indi
cated; but immediately afterward they
struck a barrier ot solid rock, through
which they are now slowly and laborious
ly blasting their way with giant powder.
It is a curious fact that the story of such
a buried treasure has been Landed down
as a tradition from the first settlement of
this section, and many people living in
the region are watching the diggers with
excited interest, half believing that the
old decrepit seeress has, in fact, revealed
the location of the treasure cave.
QUARTER OF A MILLION SICK.
Nine Hundred Deaths in One Week at
Chicago, March 28. The deaths re
ported from pneumonia and kindred ail
ments for the week will be about 900,
probably the largest number ever re
corded in this city. A careful estimate
justifies the statement that nearly 259,000
people in this city are under medical
treatment. Every branch of business is
crippled by the prevailing sickness. Dr.
J. U. Hammond said yesterday: "The
present epidemic of the grip is as bad as
a season of cholera so far as the number
of people affected is concerned. Every
doctor that 1 know is overrun wit h busi
ness." Mrs. Gougar Contradicted.
