blow holes and was three-quarters instead
of five-eighths of an inch thick, and a 12-ton
Blakely riff* were used, similar to the two
that burst in the previous experiments.

tained ii no pounds of sand instead of dyna
mite. The charge was thirty pounds of
hexagonal powder. The shell was fired into
a sand bank at a distance of thirty yards
and was recovered almost intact The shell
was opened and testified to Hie correctness
of Justin's theory of the late explosions in
the gun. Another test will be made with
the same shell and on the third test dyna
mite will again be used.

and camphor were placid in shell with

them in the shell it was expected to be able
to determine the degree ot heat that pene

j CAMPAIGN CONTHIBUTIONS.
Civil Service Ccmmitaioner Roosevelt Defines

* Washington, Oct. 30.— A well-known
Republican leader, who is connected with
the Congressional Campaign Committee,
has received from Civil Service Commis
sioner Roosevelt a contribution of $50 to be
used for legitimate campaign expenses in
any Congressional District where needed.
The Com lu'usioner has also sent a contribu
tion in aid of the Democratic cause. In
conversation to-day Roosevelt says: Clerks
are much at liberty to contribute to one
party as to another, and they are perfectly
safe and free to make no contribution if
they so prefer. Within the classified
service employes are under no obliga
tions to any party. Governor Thompson
is a Democrat, serving under tbis
administration, and be makes a contribution
to aid his party. 1 inn a Republican, and I
aid mine, if we did not want to contribute
we would not No one can force a Govern
ment employe to contribute; nor, if be desires
to Contribute, to compel him to Contribute to
this party rather than that. In regard to
political clubs of winch Government em
ployes are members, there Is no reason why
they should not be Democratic as well as
Republican; but any of them will be prose
cuted if we have evidence of their trying to
force contributions by Intimidation."
Special Agent Petri If Arrives at Washington
With His Statistic...
t Washington, Oct. 30.— Ivan Petroff, the
Special Census Agent for Alaska, has re
turned to Washington with his figures. His
preliminary report will be ready in a few
days. Petrbfl is a native of Russia and has
lived in Alaska almost all his life, aud was
therefore well qualified for the census work.
He took the census of Alaska In 1880, blithe
does not regard ii as being as thorough as
tills last one, owing to the fact that he had
ilu assistants at that time.- He thinks.t he
census of 1890 will be very accurate, as he
had plenty of help and time, and be has been
at it since last Maich. He estimates
Alaska's population at from 36,000 to 35.0C0.
The resources of the country have developed
wonderfully, owing to tiie remarkable in
crease of the white population. Petroff
traveled over a great stretch of country nnd
personally superintended the work of his
subordinates. lie says that lie experienced
many difficulties in traveling about, owing
to the poor facilities of transportation.
"Shanks' mare" was liberally patronized,
besides using Indian canoes with natives ns
oarsmen mid also as assistants in the census

it the latter are kept under military observa
tion for a time nt a few points where fric
tion will most likely result from the settle

at Flathead Lake, Mont, he says it ai pears,
upon inquiry, that, there is little probability
of serious trouble; that the enforcement by
the civil officers of the statute prohibiting
the sale ol liquor to Indians and half-breeds
is the principal necessity of the case. He
approves the post canteen system.

A TOUGH STOBY.

Harney P. IluecU-a' Great Career na n
News conies from Weeping Willow, Ariz.,
of the death of Harney P. Buggies. ' The
chances are that Ibe reader will not recog
nize the name, though its bearer perfected
one of the most ingenious inventions of the
age. Indeed, lie would have died several
years ago bad it not been for bis invention.
Nothing ever more clearly lengthened life.
In the first place, we should say that the late
Mr. Buggies was not a particularly honest
man. Not to put any point on it at all,
Harney P. Buggies was a horse-thief. He
followed the vocation from his eighteenth
year till the day of his death, but it is
not to be concluded from this that his
taking off was one of vio'ence, as he
died calmly of peritonitis. Ten years ago,
when living in Deaf Smith County, Texas.
Mr. Buggies was taken one night by the
efficient local Vigilance Committee and
banged by the neck to a mesquite tree.
The purifiers of Deaf Smith society then
rode rapidly away. Buggies hung for some
few minutes, when the limb broke and lie
fell to the ground in an insensible condition.
He recovered, however, and made bis es
cape, but the incident rendered him thought
ful. He could not seem to forget it Even
after tbe lacerations made by the rope on
his neck had healed be would frequently
speak of it. The result was that lor six
months be did not follow his profession, but
devoted the time to thought and study. But
little canto of it, however, until he one day
read in a Memphis paper of a doctor insert
inc a silver tube in a child's throat for it to
breath through while Buffering from diph
theria. Instantly a great tight rushed In on
the mind of Buggies. lie would have a silver
tube put in his throat below the rope zone
The next morning he was in San Anloni ,
where he gave a doctor named Blake $200
to connect a silver tube with his wiudpioe.
When Harney P. Buggies rode out of San
Antonio tlie next day all doubt" had van
ished from his lace and serenity and confi
dence were in its place.
Mr. Buggies now returned to the scene of "
bis loiinei triumphs, mid again took up his
work with a vigor which surprised both
friends and Vigilance Commute alike. He
stela horses right and left and sold them
oneuly in the nearest market. After two
weeks the committee again ook him in
charge. The hung him to the cross-arm of
a telegraph pole, and, as be bad escaped be
fore, sat down and waited beguiling the
time with pleasant stories. When be bad
hung thirty minutes they cut him
down. He got up from the ground, sin ok
hands all around, thanked them in a few
brief but well-chosen words, got on the lead
er's horse and rode away. The committee
were dumfouiideil. They were powerless to
offer any resistance. Tr.cy plucked up cour
age, however, to make one more attempt a
week later. This time they allowed him to
hang all-night. The only complaint that
Buggies made when cut down in the room
ing" was that they had disturbed him before
be had finished his sleep. '•-.-
From that time fill he was taken ill a week
aeo Buggies' history has-been one of con
tinued prosperity. He operated all over
Western Texas, New Mexico and Arizona.
Over 100 different committees had him in
hand at different times. Their usual course
was to lynch him after supper and then
retire, the intention being to take him down
in the morning. Buggies would help
himself down shortly after midnight,
secure a few ' good horses and pass ou
to another community. A handsome full
beard always concealed' the silver tube
and his secret was never discovered
by the committees. On one occasion the
Willing Workers' Vigilance Committee of
Saints' Rest N. M., kept him siisnendei!|two
days, but, though he suffered somewhat
lrom hunger, that was all. He accumulated
a fortune during the last ten years. tnd died
worth over half a million. . Though we may
not honor our men of genius as we should,
the fact remains that if they are willing to
work they may be very successful In a
financial sense. Mr. Ruggles left a son,
Frederick S., to carry on tbe business. This
sou is already in San Antonio completing
the necessary preparations.— Y. Tribune.

IT IS A FRAUD.
Thai "Old Pard" Letter Declared
to Be a Forgery.
Colonel Markham Did Not Write It—"Discov
ered" by Dr. Congar, His Bitterest Ea- .
emy— Experts' View*.
Tlie last and most desperate effort of ths
Buckley Democrats to save themselves from
overwhelming defeat has proved fruitless,
for the "Old Pard" letter, attributed to Col
ouel H. H. Markham, Bepnblican nominee
for Governor, lias been declared a forgery, a
fabrication aud a fraud. History repeats it
self in a most singular maimer, for the sim
ulated correspondence has for its burden an
unpopular expression of opinion on the Chi
nese question, the same subject that was em
ployed ten years ago in the Morey letter
which was intended to injure General Gar
field, and which actually cost him the elec
toral vote of California.
When the Democratic State Central Com
mittee issued what purported to be a fac
simile of a letter written by Colonel Mark
ham, that gentleman repudiated the whole
thing as spat ions, and Mr. Stump, Chair
man of the .Republican State Central Com
mittee, offered $1000 reward for the produc
tion of a genuine litter written by Colonel
Mark!, containing any such sentiments as
those set forth iv the forgery. -'. y
After more than two weeks' delay the let
ter was placed in the hands of Mr. Stump
for examination. He gave the matter care
ful consideration, and yesterday sent his
reply to the Democratic State Central Com
mittee. It is but fair to these gentlemen to
say that in this matter they have relied on
the assertions of Dr. 0. 11. Cougar of Pasa
dena, one of Colonel Markham's bitterest
and most relentless enemies. They are not,
however, the first to be victims of his duplic
ity as the records of the court in Los Ange
les will attest.
Mr. Stump's reply is as follows:

If such a judgment was toi mcd of Dr. Cougar In

and lis authenticity was ouly shown through
Cougar. Ho one at the dial saw tbe original
letter, but a copy which- Cougar said he had com
pared with tbe original, but winch be did uot
citify even to be a copy, was Wed.
Air. Wilson staled yesterday, in answer to a
question, thai the attention of Mr. Markham
was not at any lime culled to this letter. When
you produce the letter in question, it comes
through the hands of this same man Congar, be

there was a conspiracy, and who in bis findings
said that they evaded the Hutu upon the wit

they had denied. To emphasize this point the
Court found these facts from Hi • evidence and
correspondence of Cougar and Ilallock them
selves. The Couit also found that all trouble
growing out of this particular mining transaction
was caused by tins same Cougar, who induced
Mr. Markham and others to buy au interest in
the mine ou bis representations as au expert,
wheu lie bad uo sueu knowledge, and the Court
finds that he milled all uf bis associates.
The enure record of the case allows that Dr.
Cougar was a subtle, scheming, dishouest. cuu

Coursing at Merced — Foot-Ball
and the King.
The Secretary of the Interstate Coursing
Club has received a telegram from Dr. yon
Humineli asking if the prizes which have
been announced will be given. He was an
swered in the affirmative, and the supposi
tion is that the doctor and his Eastern
friends will bt; present, with several first
class dogs at the meeting, which will open
on the 17th prox. at Merced.
It is probable that sumo of the dogs who
will represent the East will give a good
account of themselves, as they come from
the best of the old English stock. Mr. Bel
mont' Minnie Station and Watson's Dry
time, Phister's Norwegian, who is half
brother to the great Fullerton, Belle of
Eltham, his litter sister, and the speedy
Nettleficld will make matters very warm for
the local flyers should they reach this
country in good condition.
They are all iv the hands of Dr. yon Hum
meli, who will take particular pains to see
that they will be in first-class condition to
enter the contests against their opponents.
Although the greater number of these highly
bred greyhounds have only recently come
across the big pond they will no doubt show
a clean pair of heels to any of the best home
bred stick who will outcome to the scratch
in the best condition.
Belle of Eltham is said to be particularly
fast and the doctor expects her to carry off
the first prize of the great meeting of the
West. Speaking of the event the Forest
and Stream of New York says:
After a week's rest from their labors at Great
Bend most of Ihe hounds will journey to iba
Merced plateau. Among the list of probable en
tries we notice Midnight, a son of old Mother
Demdicke, by Friday Night, and also two ot hi]
sons out ul Peasant ill.
The local snortsinen who have been exer
cising and training dogs for the past six weeks
are determined to show their Eastern
friends some racing stock as good as can be
found in any country where coursing is car
Jim Cronin has quite a number of fine
dogs in his keeping which will run like the
wind when liberated alter the famous jacks
of Merced. There is no doubt but that this
coming meeting will be the greatest and most
exciting event of the kind ever held this
side of tlie big mountains, and it Is hoped
that ho man from San Francisco will show
a dog on the field who is not thoroughly con
ditioned to run against the best stock that
can be produced.
