who is willing to i-wear positively th
Mr. Ilamiltou is not dead unless he ha
died in the last two weeks. . This witness '
I Henry Strong, formerly of Greene
Chenango county, X. V. He declares that
two weeks airo yesterday he met Robert
Ray Hamilton face to face in the Yellow-
stone park region. He is certain it was
Mr. Hamilton. He reeoenized him at .
once by his face ami his voice.
Certain He Saw Hamilton.
! Lave been in California for the last
year or two. he said, -and started home j
three weeks ao by the way of the North- j
era P;cinc. At Yankton I stopped orlj
and took the stage route into tbe Yellow-j
stone park to see what it was like. There
are no towns in the park, you know only
scatterim; hotel for tnr.rnsts
At one ot
the.se hotels I Lave forgotten the name of I
it two week- ao t:tnorrow Tnornjns, I
saw Mr. Hamilton. H was apparently :

Lad Uit leeu long at the hotel. He wa.
alone, so far a- I im:M judpe. ;
Why He Ii.i Not s;eak to Him.
I di'l not speak to him because I found
out that he was not known there as Uot-i
ert Ray Ilatuiltou. and I thought that it;
be wilieil to rwuain unknown it was none
of my business. I saw; him goiru; about
and heard him talking to other jwople. I
could have recognized Lim by his voice it
I had not s,-en Lis face at all. I knew that
it was Mr. Hamilton the minute I ob
served him. The people around the ht-l
did not know where he came from, or
where he was going. I stayed there only
a short time, and Lad no chance to find
out more atH-vut his movement. He did
not go away in the direction that I went.
Hamilton Looked Well.
' He looked very well, and was well j
dres-eiL. but like a traveler and not like a j
resident. I liever Lad any jrrsonal ac
quaintance with him. but I knew Lis fact
and voice very well. I was in Albary
during the winter of when Mr. Ham
ilton was serving Lis last term in the as
sembly, aiid I went often to the legisla
ture. I was particularly interested in Mr.
Hamilton recause Le was the only Repub
lican from New York city and I am a Re
publican myself, and )-ciiise Le was a
bright younir man. I sawagre.it deal of
him in AlKiny. and frequently heard Lim
s;-eaW. When I was in Ot.ifornia I read
different stories a!ut Lim being dead and
I- Willi ns to swear to It.
"I am willing y testify on the witness
stand that I saw Lim alive two weeks
ago." Mr. Strong loaks like an honest
farmer and talks like a mm who kuow
wbat Le is a:out. IJut he is a little out of
range in Lis geography, any way. The
Northern Pacific n.iiway dues not run

at Comptroller Lacey should go to Phil

president writes to the mayor that thU
last request will lie granted. with such res
