Sir Harry Maclean (Kaid Maclean) has furnished the Special corrcspon- dent ot a London paper with tho story of his recent Imprisonment, after having gono as an envoy to tho Chief Ralsull, who treacherously detained him. "Before 1 left Fez In June," so runs tho Kald's story, "the Sultan gave mp letters for Ralsull and tor notice of mo. Tho El Khmes tribe some of the tribes. His Majesty told uiged Ralsull to give mo up, but ho niTt to hand" these lettors to tho chiefs piit the guard around hly tent, and of the tribes, and not to glvo them declared that he would light first." to Ralsull.

For that reason I took with mo only a few of my men. "When I met Ralsull at the river ho was awfully nice. Ho asked mo to como a little -way Into tho chiefs country to show that I also trusted them, and to glvo them their letters from ' the Sultan. I made Ralsull clasp hands and swear by everything ho held sacred even by the local salnt who Is his patron saint and an- cestor that ho was going to act fait"- lv. Ho did all these things, nnd and- ed that It wns a shamo I should 'think that ho would behavo IH.

Soon af- dltlons that would havo daunted a ter we passed the river I know It was less proud and obstinate mnn. Not my Rubicon, and that I was entirely in Ralsull's hands." "MAD WITH SHAME." "Next day, continued Kald Mac- lean, "when Ralsull sent his scribe, El Dowie, to tell me tnat 1 was a prisoner, I was mad with sorrow and shame, for Instead of helping tho Sul- tan I had mado matters worso for hlm, and had put my own Government In a difficult position. I felt Inclined to kill myself, In order to help tho Sultan, nnd to prevent Ralsull from making anything out of his treacn- ery. ' Tho Moorish Government tried to negotlato, and failed. Then it sent two utterly inefficient armies against Ralsull. "When tho Sultan's soldiers came," says tho Kald, "Ralsull told tho peo- Wo wero in a beastly state. On Sep plo that I had sent them, nnd asked tember Ralsull must havo received mo to write lettors, Insisting on their news that alarmed him, for he sent withdrawal.

"Ralsull, realising that I would pot help him, and suspecting mo ot urg- Ing tho Government to activo mea- aures, determined to givo mo a bad time.

Raisull knew how I was treated, for he and his nephew passed close to mo seated on the ground In the sun, and took no smuggled to a distant retreat, mac- cesslblo save to mountaineers and goats, "It. was on the 21th of July, 1 think, that I was taken Into the mountain, about threo hours' distant from El Khmes. I was not allowod to carry anything with me. During tho first two days I was given only a llttlo brown bread and some water, and during tho threo following days ono boiled chicken and some hard-boiled eggs. All day I was kept hidden un- dor some rocks, and was not pormlt- ted to movo a step. Every night until tho fourth wo changed our hid- Ins; nlaco. koIuk over verv rouch ground to a new Inlr under the rocks. ' On tho fourth night wo did not move, a word of complaint was uttered, and not for a moment did Sir Harry Mac- lean glvo his enemies tho gratlflca- tlon of seeing that their tortures had any effect on him. "Ho treated them with silent contempt," said tho Moors who visited Ralsull's prisoner. "Ho turped his back upon them, nnd said, 'Shoot mo, If you will.' Ho was nev- or afraid." Let tho Kald tell tho story of this ordeal. "On August 24 I wns placed In a tumble-down room, witn tho roof off on one smo nnu pnruy on on mo oui- er. I was not permitted to leavo tno room, which four Moors shared with mo nnd tho fleas. Wo had only a llttlo kcttlo of water among us, and I could wash only my hands and face. four of his guards to carry mo off In- to tho hills again. I was ill at the tlmo. Happily, tho men had had such n bad tlmo during our previous stay in tho hills that they refused to go." Ralsull, no doubt, was disturbed by tho arrival of Mr. Allan Maclean in Tangier, and by tho receipt of a let- tor dated August 27, inviting him to como to terms. Mr. "BIbl" Carleton then came on tho scent, and for tho first time Ralsull was asked to make known his conditions. Tho Invitation was made on Septembqr 8 seventy 5, FR S1 (Continued from Pago One.) question of increasing the item for the dredging of Pearl Harbor channel. ' Sentiment in thnt committee Is dlvldod on the question of an lncreaso, bu. there Is a possibility of securing It. 1 have every assurance thnt the Pearl , Harbor bill proper will have practical- j ly no opposition In tho Senate Com mittee. I The Senate has made Increases on tho Fortification bill to complete the Pearl Haibor fortifications. This in crease will probably be rejected by tho ' House conferees, on tho ground that the work need not bo completed In full 1 till the channel is nearly opened for battleships. In accordance with our Understand In tvltlt nrlnlti nf thn ITnitcn Innitnrn "- " ' I wo have not pressed tho shlpplng""iaw j nmendment, pending the consideration , of the mall subsidy l..h. Unfortunately for us, tho Democratic ' filibuster will make it well nigh lm- possible to get that bill, or any other , ot our separate measures, through the House. Tho Democratic leader relTSss to allow any bill whatever to bo con sidered by unanimous consont. Tho only other method of securing consid- 1 eration of a bill for the remainder ot this session will be suspension of the rules. This requires a two-thirds vote to pass a measure, and it Is very I doubtful whether we could secure n two-thirds vote in favor of my ship ping bill In the face of the opposition of the shipping interests. If however the subsidy bill wholly falls wo may be able to get my cbast-wlse-Iaw amendment through In tho closing days of tho session. Very truly yours, J. KALANIANAOLE, Delegate to Congress. In order to facilitate the mail ser vice tho Chamber of Commerce sent out a special launch which took the coast mail from tho Hongkong Maru, and the Oriental mall from the Ame rica Maru, and brought It ashore whlJc tho examination by tho Quarantine doctors was going on. days after tho capture of tho Kald. Ralsull received Air. Carleton's let ter on tho 10th. Its effect was magi cal. "Ralsull," says Sir Harry Maclean, "came to see mo on tho morning ot tho 10th, and on tho following day ho sent mo a tent How glad I was to get out of that beastly hole! I spent seventeen never-to-be-forgotten days there. On the last night eleven Moors kept me awako until three In the morning, nnd I was out of tho room at five. I had a bad time, but I did not let them see that I cared a straw! Often I'felt Hko a seasick man whoso only wish is to bo thrown overboard. When I quitted that dreadful room I was as thin as a alrnlntnn T nulil nfif Htnllrl imrlirht. Jami waij BO Wcak from the conflno- ment and want of proper food that I could hardly walk. Ralsull told mo that ho would treat mo well. Ho sent back my servants and my bed. That night I had a good sleep be tween sheets a luxury I had not en joyed since July 17, having slept on the. ground for 5G nights. Bettor still, I had no Moors In my tent to keep mo awako till 1 o'clock and to com mence praying at dawn." RAISULI ASKS FOR THE MOON. Of course, Ralsull began by asking for the moon. But the moon waned steadily. On October 8 the Sultan assented to any conditions for tho Kald's release. which was harder to bear than prl vatlons, had failed to break tho In domitable spirit of Kaid Maclean. An othor Instrument of torture was found, and the prisoner was left to tho tender mercies of St. Mahomet Arrar, one of Ralsull's creatures. Sir Harry Maclean Is a great lover of music. Ho plays tho bagpipes, and tho story ran that ho was wont to was compelled to listen was Intend ed ns a form of torture. Tho guards took their cuo from Arrar, and de termined that tho dog of a Christian should listen It he would not dnnco to their tune. Tho two-stringed fid' die of tho country was at work night and day, and tho captlvo was prevent ed from sleeping. Protest was In vain. Tho samo old tuno was ground pipes. Unhappily, his pipes wero not with him, and tho music to which ho out until 1 or 2 In tho morning. Theso murderers of sleep and of music de manded rowards, and promised to abato tho nulsnnco If given tho price of n sheep. They bought n goat In stead, declaring that tho rn'hallas had eaten all their sheep moro mischief thnn most people suspected them of doing. Being a Moor and a time sorver, SI Mahomet Arrar began to amend his ways when ho saw some prospect of tho Kald's release. Tho negotiations dragged on with painful slowness, and It was not un til November thnt tnoy began to tnko practical shape thanks to tho tact aniL knowledge of tho natlvo charac ter possessed by Mr. "Blbl" Carle ton, consular agent at Clcazar. Knid Maclean has borno his long captivity Hko a soldier. Ho has nev er uttered ono word of complaint, nnd has always shown himself ready to bo mado a sacrifice if his detention, or oven his death, could benefit tho causo of Abdul Aziz.
