Two Victims of the ICaid.
Tbe bodies of Champion and Ray were
brought into town yesterday and were
viewed at the undertaker's. The former
has twenty-eight bullets in his body, while
tbe remaius of Ray are unrecognizable. the
legs and head being entirely consumed by
fire, leaving only the charred and roasted
trunk. The sight of this causes the most
Intense feeling, but there are no danger
ous indications. No trouble is feared mi
les it is obvious that justice, as under
stood by the "rustlers," will be defeated.
Tbe Heart's Blood of Champion.
On Champion's person was found a diary
soaked with his heart's blood, through the
center of which a bullet had torn its re
sistless way. Feeling that the game was
up the outlaw had calmly jotted down in
a memorandum book the passing scenes
of the Inst hours of his life, from the time
the attack was begun in early morning
do wn to the moment the house was fired.
The .Stockmen Not Worried.
Tom Keze who is foreman of the Mur
phy Cattle company, said that Fay Par
ker, one of the prisoners, who is manager
of that outfit, said the prisoners had no
fears; that they had any quantity of nwney
and could buy themselves out; that Par.
ker yesterday received . letter, from a
stranger offering $.",(.N)0 if needed. The
prisoner apiear neither. sorry nor worried
bout their crimes. The only fear that
the rustlers and their friends have is that
the invaders have so much we.ilrh at their
command and so uiany .friend at court
that they will escape punishment.
Having a Pleasant Time.
Ti(e special guard house resembles a ho
tel at a summer report. The prisoners
sun themselves upon the piazza, board at
tbe Canteen restaurant, and are escorted
to and from their meals by a file of guards.
They have . different times for meals, the
cattle owners going in ono party and the
soldiers in another. When they are ready
they are escorted to t he Canteen barroom
by a sentry.
' , " Draw Poker Without a Limit.

SNAKES BROKE UP THE SCHOOL.

Lonkon, Conn., April 10. Teacher and
pupils of the Che.tnut Hill school at

have not yet recovered from the shock.
School opened for the summer term, and
all we it well till a lit tin girl screamed and

peering out of the plastering near the

was ill and sjiit her home. Half an hour
later a small boy saw a snake- crawl out
of a hole near the chimney and killed it
with a slate frame.

It was warm weather, and pretty soon
a half awakened reptile five feet long tum
bled o it from a hole iu the ceiling and
landed with a thump just in front of the

of her desk till tbe big boys had settled
his account. Then snakes begau to tum

blacker and uglier than ever, and the
whole school, big boys and all, fled. The
teacher refuses to enter the building again,

A Government Loan Not Pop

LOCAL MANAGERS TN THE DUMPS,

Because Congressmen Are Shy of a Na
tional Appropriation Report of the
Washington Committee A Loan or
Nothing from I'ncle Sam, Who Wants
a Mortgage, Too What Higlnbotham
Thinks of the Matter Progress at the
Fair Site Noted.
Chicago, April 16. The local directors
of the World's fair are not just exactly
pleased with the course of affairs at
Washington. A week ago they sent a
committee to the national capital to talk
to the statesmen about help for the fair
cash help. The committee has made a
proposition to give the national govern
ment a second mortgage on the gate re
ceipts for a loan of $3,000,000. The afore
said receipts are estimated at $10,000,000 at
least, and a $3,000,000 slice is held as a first
mortgage. This would make Uncle Sam
pretty safe, but the proposition was made,
so it is claimed, without authority from
the directors and they are not pleased.
Think They Have Hone Their Hest.
Directors Frederick S. Winston and John
J. P. (.Well returned from Washington
yesterday, confident that congress would
grant the loan, and that they had done the
best thing for the fair in abandoning the
idea of getting an appropriation and work
ing instead for the loan. Mr. W nston
said: "We had been in Washington but a
few hours before we learned that the ap
propriation bill could never be passed. To
tell the plain truth, it didn't have any
show at all. From members of congrejs
whom we know are friendly to the fair,
men who are anxious to help us in any
way they can, we learned that the appro
priation bill would surely fail.
They Wanted a Precedent.
Where is the precedent for such an ap
propriation?' " The question was put o
us a dozen times before we had been in
Washington two hours. Mr. Baker was
the special target for such questions. As
soon as we bscame convinced, from con
tact with congressmen known to be iTix
ious to help the fair, that the bill could

asket for a loan Ifltd of for an appro

M here's the Precedent for a Loan?
''Immediately we made that change the
skies were clear. Members of congress
who had opposed the first bill assujl us
of support. The opposition was disarmed.
Even members w h$ were, hostile to the
exposition could flot refuse to vote for
such a rneasurg. Congressman McGann,
of tills city, Told mc UTat we bad acjed
w jselv. Bojji the appropriations an! the
World's fair committee seemed to be
thoroughly satisfied with the turn affairs
had taken, and we came away from Wash
ington feeling confident that we bad done
the best thing possible for tha faLr"
TTiginhothaui Gives His vTli.
Vice President Higinbotham says em
phatically that ie d,g?s trot bJJeve loan
of $5,000,000 will be accepted. He said;. ..t-
believe we cannot afford to accept the ,
money under the conditions laid down bv ,
the bill. It w;ould look jis, tOTTgli tiie
government really had no interest in Ue
exposition and merely lending 1fs as-j
sisiancc, 11 sucn 11 coum oe, railed, on a ,
purely financial basis. My idea would
have been to stand by the appropriation
bill until it failed, it fail it did, and then
go for the loan. Chicago as a city has
certainly done her part for the fair. The
government hasdoue practically nothing."
SIX THOUSAND MEN AT WORK.
Heavy Construction on the Hullditi);
About Completed Progress.
More than 6,000 men were employed on
the World's fair grounds every day this
week. The teavy construction is aliout
done, except on the manufactures, ma
chinery and electricity buildings. There
is some heavy work to le done on the
domes of the Illinois and government
buildings and on t he iron decks of the bat
tle ship. The fisheries, woman's, horticul
ture, transportation, mines and dairy
buildings are completed iu their struc
tures, and ''trim" work aud interior finish
ing are progressing on allot them. The
work of putting on exterior covering is in
progress on every building on the ground
except machinery hall.
Ornamenting the round.
The landscape gardeners are busy and
the territory around horticulture build
ing, on the wooded island, through the
Midway plaisance, is beginning to be sug
gestive of flower lieds. Aside from the
construction of the fifteen buildings, the
miscellaneous work on the grounds grows
iu importance as the time advances. This
includes the gardening, fence building,
finishing, of terrace wails, preparing the
pile foundation of the grand fountain, the
building of the electric subway, the new
office building, the greenhouses, the propa-gating-houses
and the cleansing works.
Work on the Battleship.
The battleship, which has been appar
ently sleeptug for some weeks, has awak
ened, and is progressing rapidly All of
the long delayed ironwork of the deck has
been received, and eighteen men are now
punching the necessary holes for the plac
ing of the deck beams. The framework of
all the guns is -on the grounds, and there
are twelve of these fourforty-flve feet and
eight twenty-five feet. All of the steel
construction work of the deck is now ready

Exhibition of Farm' Products.

Milwaukee. From these selections
