The Modest Recital of His Own Plrloky Rescue of His Friend. we Stoutly Whaeked'thi Caarewiteh's As sallant Over the Head and Laid im Oat Cold. CoPEurmAos, July 22.-A newspaper in this city publishes what purports to be the text of a letter from Prince George of Greece to his father, King George, giving an account of the attack made upon the ozarewitoh in Japan. He tells about their visit at Kioto and how they started for Oteio. In the afternoon as they were going through a narrow street Prince George heard a shriek and saw a policeman hitting the ozarewitoh on the head with a sword. He continues: "Nickey (the ozarewitch) jumped out of the cart and a man ran after Nickey, .whbse blood was streaming I down his face. I, too, jumped out, t stick in hand, and ran after Nikey. Niekey ran into a shop and came out again immediately, which enabled the man to overtake him, but I, thank God, arrived there at the same moment, and while the I man had his sword high in the air I gave him a blow straight on the head and so hard that he probably never experienced a similar one. He now turned against me, but fainted and fell to the ground. Then I two of our jinriksha pullers appeared. One s of them caught hold of the man'e legs and the other caught up the sword which he inad dropped and gave the ozarewitch's assail ant a wound on the back of the head. It is God who placed me there at that moment and gave me strength to deal the blonw Had I been a little later the policeman I would perhaps have out off Nickey's head. Had my blow missed my assailant's head I he would have out off mine. The whole 1 thing was so quick that others behind as had seen nothing of. it. Nickey sat down and a doctor bandaged his wound as well as he could and we drove, escorted by sol- c diers, to the governor's house. "I must say I admired Nickey's pluck. He did not faint a single time nor did he lose his good spirits for a moment. He had two large wounds on his head above the ear, one of them five centmeters long and the other six. Both wounds had pene- a trated to the skull, but lnuckily no further. The regular bandaging of his head was done at our house at Kioto and lasted an hour and a half. Nlokey stood it splendid ly. When this was over he was quite well and had neither pain nor headache. When we had finished dinner he turned in and i slept nine hours without awtil5enigv, lie had no fever and noteven a headaoclie. "During the day telegrams were simply showered in upon us from all parts of the world, That afternoon we received a tle- - gram saying that Aunt Mina (czarina) t would feel more reassured if Nickey went on board as soon as possible. Consequently we left Kioto that afternoon, going by ral to Kobe. Of course we had a grand recep tion on board. All the officers of the squadron assembled, shoutiue 'hurrah.' Nickey shook hands with all and went below. 'I had gone to the cabin to don my uniform ,when the commanding officer came below and said the officers wanted to see me on deck. When I leached the deck they took hold of me and played ball (an exceptional Rnussian honor, signifying excessive joy,) with me, afterward carrying me in triumph c around the deol"." SOLIIEitS MUTINY. Widespread Discontent In the Ranks of the Englilh Army. LONDoN. July 22.-Truth to-day prints another startling story of mutiny in the British army, which, it claims, occurred in the Second battalion of the Cold Stream guards, quartered at Wellington barracks, near Buckingham palace, where, incident ally, it furnished the guard of honor dur ing the recent visit of Emperor William. It seems that the extra duty thus necessi tated was far from pleasant to the guards men, who long have been the pets of the British army. After the departure of the emperor the guards expocted a day of free- t dom from guard mounting for recupera- I tion. Ihe men, however, were ordered on parade tcpty, as usual, in full marching t orJer. As a result they became sullen and unmanageable. The First and Third com panies at first bluntly refused to parade. Officers of those companies held a her ried consultation, not liking the pros pects of a term of exile similar to the one the Second battalian of the Gienadier guards was subjected to at Bermuda. As a result they arwued the matter with the i rates, holding up to them prospeots of exile c from England. The privates finally sul- y lenly consented to parade, but their beha- R vior became so glaringly insubordinate that the officers marched them back to the bar racks and ordered the commands confined three days a punishment. Ten senior s privates were also placed under arlest with aview to trying them by a court martial for ihsuburdination. Ninety of tile guards- f men thereupon barricaded themselves in a v room of the barracks, refusing to emerge c until their comrades should be guaranteed g the same treatment as the others. Gen. I-arding was finally called in and by a ju- c dicious speech succeeded in quieting them. The significance of the mutinous sentiment can be judged when it is understood that the guards are the oldest corps in the army u with one single exception, a h FEELING IN FRANCE. The McKInley Law Will Seriously Affect the lig Fair. PA.ns, July 22.-An Assooiated press cor respondent here has been making inquiries of the chambers of commerce in t1 Franceas to the present feeling b concerning the McKinley tariff, and as to whether this fact will affect the French exhibit at Chicago. Thle vice-pros- M ident of the chamber of commerce of Al- w giers said that the chamber passed a reso- Hi lusion not long ago declaring that the new it tariff law tended to render very dificult if ml not impossible all trade between Frince it and the United States. The secretary of R1 the chamber of commerce of Iteims said: hI "For the present at least the McKinley bill si Is an obstacle to the participationt of dur manufacturers in the Chicago exhibition, but if within a reasonable length of time a friendly spirit is shown by the American republic for our productions the chamber will theoun be ready to second the hi minister's efforts." The prcsident of the al chamber of commerce of Itoabaix writes j that the McKinley tariff has produced a I taost unfortunate impression, and it is it feared the (hicago exhitition will not have T the reception th, re it otherwise would have b' ead. Marseilles writes to the same effect. k The president of the Ilordeaux chamber pl lays that considering the unjust prohibi- tt t J w 2 tion of American malt meats for years past, thsyare not surprised at the retaliatory Molinley bill. The Festival at Bayreuth, BAyaltrrn, Bavaria, July 2..-Bayreuth, the German Olympta, is as crowded with music lovers fromnall parts of `the world as it was in 1876 and 1882 when the Nieblung trilogy and "Persifal" were first produced under Wagner's personal supervision. The hotels hold only a small fraction of the visitors, and most householders have placed a room or two at their disposal during the four weeks of the festival, -as at Oberam mergan last year. Both of these festival towns for religious and musical pilgrims are in Bavaria, but while Oberammergau has its festival only once in ten years, Bay reuth has one every two years on an aver ago. The fist was in 1876, and this year's festival, which begins to-morrow, is the seventh. The works produced here so far are four parts of the "Nibelnng Ring," "Parsifal," "Tristan" and the "Meister singer." The novelty this year will be "Tannhauser," in the Paris version. Wales Ia Poor Health. LoDwon, July 22.-The prince of Wales has also been sick. His physicians are sending him to Carlsbad this year instead of to Homburg, at which latter place he has been a regular visitor for a number of years. The choice of Carlsbad this time means unsparing severity in the use'of the "cure." At six o'clock in the morning he will be obliged to begin the day with drink ing water, and will be compelled to follow a rigorous hygienic regime throughout each day. This change indicates that his health is much worse than it has been for some time. Caught a Captain. LoNDON, July 22.-The marriage of Miss Ethel Forbes-Leith, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. J. Forbes-Leith, of New York, to Capt. Charles Roodinburn, of the First (Royal) dragoons, and aide de camp to the duke of Connaught, took place this after noon in Holy Trinity church. A large crowd of fashionable people were present, including the duke and duchess of Con naught, the marquis of Lorne and Princess Louise, United btates Minister Lincoln and Mrs, Lincoln. Bitter Agalinst the British. LownoN, July 22.-A Buenos Ayres letter says intense distress prevails among the poor. Prices are advancing rapidly. A barrel of flour has, within the month, risen to $28.50. Men are frequently seen picking food from offal heats. Business people blame the British bankers for their policy of propping the Barinse and thus protract ing the crisis. Publie feeling is bitter against the British and British flags dis played in honor of national fetes are torn down. Reported by His Enemies. LoNDoN, July 22.-The following advices have been received from Chili, via Buenos Ayres: President Balmaceda has had shot at Valparaiso Richard Cumming, son of an Englishman, who was born in Chili. 'The prisons are filled with sufferers without respept to age, class or sex. Two hundred persons ate imprisoned in Valparaiso. No security is afforded to foreigners. Judges are removed unless they are friendly to Balmaceda. Attached by Natives PAurs, July 22.-A dispatch from the west coast of Africa says a French expedi tion of fifty persons from Lathon, to avenge the death of Frenchmen, encoun tered 1,200 warriors, armed with European rifles, in the village of Jousse. A fight lasting four hours occurred. Many natives were killed, and a large number wounded. The natives ietreated. 'Iwo Frenchmen were killed and twelve wounded. A Heroli Maid. MONTREALr, Que., July 22.-At Long Ponte to-day Gaston Robert, the 11 year old son of a wealthy merchant of Montreal, while playing on the wharf, fell into the river. Agnes Langpie, the maid of the family, jumped in and attempted to rescue him, bhut both were drowned. Mrs. Robert also jumped in and had a narrow escape. GOING TO WIN. Gov. Campbell Sanguine of Reelection Cleveland and Hill Will Help. PITTsauno, Pa., July 22.-Gov. Campbell, of Ohio, attended the annual fete champe tre of the Randall club at Silver Lake to day. Fully 10,000 people attended the fete, which was a success in every respect. In speaking of the political outlook in Ohio, Gov. Campbell said: "The democrats of Ohio are thoroughly aroused and we are going to win. -lamilton county disaffec. tion is fast dying o-t. I expect ex President Cleveland will lend a helping hand in Ohio this time. He will be invited to make six speeches. Gov. Hill will also take a band in our cnmpaign, n's will also Cmgressman Jerry Simpson, of Kansaes, and Senator Pelfer, who was elected to sue ceed Ingalls. The two former gentlemen will be invited to Ohio by the democratic party, while the two latter will be brought into the statte by the Farmers' allianco. The latter party is very strong with us now and they are hand in hand with the demo crats. They will nomninate no ticket this year. The farmers' throughout the state generally favor free coinage." legislaltors on the Make. SAN ]'nxNRAN co, July 22.--The suit of George Fay!or against twenty-four state senators to recover ~l6,000 alleged to be due for lobby work, continued to-day. Faylor was on the stand and told how he made the combine, for whom Richard Chute acted as financial agent, collecting money from cor porations. He related a number of alleged conversations with Senator Williams, any ing the latter had told him lie received money from Chute for himself and other senators, for their action on certain mnes ures, in sums ranginfg $100 to $1,000. Burns admitted that the combine were to give him $2150 each, but have failed to do so. Vice-President Crocker, of the Southern l'acifc railway, said he had never been ap proached by an ngent of a colmbine and to his knowedge no money had been paid. Another Sale to the Cuase. TOPEKIA, Kan., July 21.-Judge McKay, th9 alliance judge who hais been sunmoned before the supreme court to answer the charge of conteinmt of court, arrived here this morning. 'lto i reporter this afternoon McKay said the stories about the Ilunney well case had been all one sided. "It is not an alliance tight. The statement that the allinrce in secret session is dictating to my court is falseo. Hunneywull is of unsound mintid and not competent to tnnatge his affairs. I think the supreme court will up hold mily action when it has heard the other aide of the caee." Relpoblleans Much Alarumsed. KANSAS CITy, Mo., July 22.--The Star's 'T'oekl special says: A secret combination has been formed by the democrats and alliance 'people for the purpose of placing a joint county ticket in nomination in this (Shawnee) county, with the view of defeat intg the repuhlioans In their stronghold. 'the fusion is said to have been engisneere I by Judge John Martin, one of the beat known demourtts inl the state. The joint platform will inoirporate the demands of the St. Louis platform. THE WORTHLESS CENSUS, Soandalous Wastefulness of the De partment Under the Control of Porter. Seven Million Dollars Already Sunk and the Results Ut terly Useless. How the Corruptionists Hope to Avoid an Investligation-The Worst Scandal of Late Years, WAsennorox, July 22.-The Washington correspondent of the Pioneer Press sends that paper the following: There will be muasi in the air if the democratic house makes a thorough and public investigation of the census office. There is any quantity of smoldering material which will burn brightly as soon as the light and air is turned on. There is some dnnger, however, of even a democratic whitewash, and one of the democratic employee of the office has discovered a system which is already being worked to keep the rottenness of the office from ever reaching the public eye. The assistant chief clezk is a democrat, and has a trm grip upon the machinery of the office, besides being the brains of the chief clerk's office. The many dismissals that have lately been made will be worked to advantage in fixing the demo oratic congressmen. Already it is said that Gorman and Cockerel mu the senate have been fixed, and when the democrats of the house begin to arrive and there is a threatened investigation they will be asked if they have not some friend whom they would like to put in to a good position, and from the many vacancies Porter has made he will have room for them. Another thing, the more employes that are put in the larger appropriation will be needed, and if the democrats want to get their friends in and keep them in they will have to come down with the appropriation. There is a possibility that Porter may by this scheme not only be able to stave off an investigation that is imminent, but also to secure money enough to continue grinding out his worthless statistics. 8even million dollars have been sunk in this census which is everywhere thought to be worse than useless. A vast army of clerks were employed for the past two years at extravagant salaries; ranging from $2,000 to $900 yearly, and some at $720. Since the dismissals began it is found that a large number of these employes instead of being dismissed have offered to perform the same work for two-thirds and even half of the salary they have received heretofore, and many of them have been retained at the re duced salary and continue to work as hbar d for the government as when they receive d the larger stipend. If when Mr. P'orter was selectmla his clerks he could have securedl good clerks at $1,000 and paid $1,00 and 1,800 for them, and when he could get good clerks at $600 and $750 he paid $'00 and $1,400 for them he has not exercised that care of the public funds that a public official entrusted with large sums of money to expend should exercise. If clerks will work for a third less money now than they worked for a year ago they would have ac cepted the same terms then. No, Porter was not large enough for such an important place. Here is a story that the informant says he can prove if it ever comnes to a show down: A lady is a cousin of a prom~iinent official in the census office. She secured a clerkship through the relationship, and by the same means secured the appointment of seven or eight more clerks at good salaries. and these clerks are now retained through all the dismissals that have taken plAce. They pay the lady who got them the piece a large portion of the salaries they receive each mAnth. Young Baum was fired out of the pension office for less than this. An employe of the office was euilty of a gross breach of faith and gave out informa tion unauthorized and in advance of the time agreed upon. The Associated press and United press agenti and other newspa per men interested in the particular infor mation made a strong protest, carnying the matter to the secretary of the interior. The secretary of the interior ordered Poiter to find and dismiss the emplore. Porter promised to dismiss him and he was easily found. In fact he came forward and ten dered his resignation in the most non chalent manner. At the same time his friends asserted that Porter dare not either dismiss him or accept his resignation, for the reason that he was a bright Initmi and know things about the census otlice that Porter did not care to have mades public. He was not dismissed, nor was his resigns tion accepted. There are rumors about the lavish ex pandituros of the office, the purchase of the machinery in the office, speculartons, the use of tile information collected by the census offieo for the furtherance of private gain, larg3 interests acquired here and there by certain people who had access to Infor unation gathered by the government-all this in a nebulous state at present, but which may come out in course of time and with a proper investigation. Then there is a still more disgusting side to the rumors of the rottenness that surrounds the whole consus-the imhmo alitios alleged to exist -and this part of the corruption will prob ably never be proven. No department of the government was ever in more disrepute with the newspaper men of the national capital or with the press of the entire country than the consus office. Without legard to party alliliations or parols they represent the newspaper men here condemn in unmeasured terms the way in which that part of the censuo offioe relative to the furnishing of inforaun lion to the press has been conducted. With the exeooption of a few personal pets of the office the newspaper men of the capital have experienced more trouble and have received mole shabby treatment at tile hands of this bureau than any other de partment of the government. but the cen nus office does not know how to get infor mation, and it is not to be expected that it wounld know how to impart it. Mineral Entries on the Renervation. WAsnIINoroN, July f±2.-Commissioner Carter, of the genernal Innd ollce has di rooted the rrgistor and receiver of public lands at Lewistown, Mont., to receive milln eral applications and allow minoral entries In the abandoned Fort Maiginnis militiary ueservetion, in Montana, under the satne condtitions as when made for other public lands. The easre rule will apply to the rabandoned Fort McDermott military reser vation in the state of Nevada. Was Not Reached. WAsuINOTON, July 22.--Acting tecretarv Wharton, of the department of state, h' a received a cablegram from Minister IReid, at Paris, saying: "t'he bill fixing a duty on pork was not reached in senate before tinat adjournment." It is understood at the die partutent thlnt the bill was attached to the new to iff bill, and the failure of the senateo to conelder the pork question before ad journment was by the inrtervention of other meaasres.

Prosperous Career of the Order in the Capital of Gallatin County. Grand Lodge of the Daughters of Rebecca to lts Instituted--News of the State. BOZEM.N, July 22.--[Hpecial,]-At the laying of the corner stone of the building to be erected by the Odd Fellows' lodge, of this city, Philip Dodson, as deputy grand master, Julius Mendelsohn, as district den uty grand master, and the following otll cars participated in the ceremonies this ifternoon: Benjamin Bissel, G. W.;Joseplh Kay, G. C.; A. G. Hempsill, G. H.; John 8. Cnhill, G. C.; Gustave Henke, G. T. Mas sena Bullard, of Helena, made the address, which was characteristic of that gentle man's ability as a speaker, and interesting to his listeners from the time he was introduced until he closed. The verdict was that it was all too short. There was deposited in the stone a copy of the pro ceedings of the sixteenth annual session of the Grand lodge, the constitution and by laws of the local lodge, and a history of Western Star lodge from its beginning to the present time, which covers a period lacking but a few months of twenty years, together with copies of the Bozeman patels, and coins of various denominations. One commendable thing in connection with this building is the fact that it is being built with the accumulation of the widows' and orphans' funds, a fund that has grown lar ger in this lodge than in any other in the state. The grand lodge and grand en campment meets here on the second Thurs day of October, at which time a grand lodge of the Daughters of Rebecca will be organized. It is probable that a large number of people will be present and the citizens anticipate with pleasure their coming. Great Falls News.

THE FI(IIT OFF. Gov. Merrlam Knocks Out Both Mlt and Ifitz. Sr. PAUL, July 22.--The Hall-Fitzslmt mons fight did not take place to-night. In view of the positive stand taken by Gov. Merrinm the management this aft6rnoon formally decided to postpone the fight in. definitely, fearing a riot should any effort be made to carry out the programme. The declaration of the Minnesota Athletic club that there would be no light was final, so far as that club is concerned, and many wild rumrors to the contrary are entirely un founded. AN stated by President Collier of the club, there had been an expense that would be a direct loss to them of $12,000, but they submitted to the legal authorities rather than precipitate trouble, and would pay back money received for tickets. It is certain the fihlt will not take place in this state, but no one now knows whether it will come oil in another state. It is re ported that the Wisconsin Central has a train in readiness to take the fighters and as many of their friends as can be brought together, over into Wisconsin, where the fight will be held on the turf, but the report is not confirmed. At a late hour to-night Hall was playing billiards at ia hotel and enjoying life gen erally, apparently with no thought of any imnpending conflict. Fitzsimmons was also resting. Parson Davies, Hall's backer and trainer, says he will remain here until to-morrow to give the club a chance of saving its forfeit, but the chances were that there would be no fight. This statement was practically reiterated by Frank Shaw, Clark, who backed Fitz simmons, and otf.era. Mayor Smith, who emphatically refuse.d to prevent the fight, to-night says the fight should have taken place, as the governor had no right to call out the militia for misdemeanor. The same view is taken by Attorney McCafferty, who has charge of the defense of Fitz simmons and his trainers before the muni cipal court. A martial air pervades the atmosphere surrounding the monster amphitheatre erected for the express purpose of seating prospective spectators of the much talked of mill. Four companies of the first regiment of the state national guard, under com mand of Col. Bond, held possession of the grounds and a cordon of 100 sentries sur rounded the building, forming a barrier impenetrable. An Associated press representative visited the grounds and had a versonal interview with Col. Bend, commanding. The colonel laughingly remarked that he would much rather be somewhere else, but that hiq orders were to guarrd tte amphitheatre and allow no one inside the building. Gov. Merriam late this evening said: "The fight will not be allowed'to take place in Rameey conty, and furthermore I want it distinctly understood that it will take place nowhere within the state of Mia nesota." This was accepted by the man agement of the club and put a quietus on. the whole affair. Slavin Used Up While Drunk. Loanow, July 22.-A disgraceful scene occurred at a boxing exhibition in the theater in Liverpool this evening. In the course of the match, Slavin, who rolled about hardly able to stand, jestingly said Mitchell could not hit him in a hundred years. Mitchell, angered, knocked Slavin about the stage and finally over among the audience. During the row Slavin fell several times and Mitchell continued striking him even while he was on his knees, trying to rise. Blpod poured from his nose and month. When Slavin regained the stige the curtain was lowbred and the fight pro ceeded behind the scehee until with great difficulty the men were separated. EXPLORATIONS IN MONTANA.
