The story of how The Journal se cured and published Monday the first authentic photograph of Czolgosz, the as eassin, printed in the northwest, is rather interesting. Immediately after the shooting telegraphic instructions were ■ent H. W. Hall, The Journal's Buf falo correspondent, to secure a photo graph af any cost. Mr. Hall set to w«rk at once, and to such good Durpose that he secured and sent to T toe Journal one of the very few photographs that were permitted by the police to get out. At first the Buffalo police decided to spread photographs of the assassin broadcast over the country, hoping that In this way evidence of the plot, if there was one, would be voluntarily offered by persons who (had seen Czolgosz. But Sec retary Root put a veto on this and re quested the police to see that no photo graphs of the assassin be permitted to go out. The secretary's idea was that no toriety is what criminals of the Czolgosz variety crave, and that it would be better to prevent any feeding of that appetite. Then the «tate of public feeling was such that Mr. Boot and the otiher advisers of the president felt that It would not do to add to tlve excitement. Before this request was received, how ever, the camera had been trained on the Bssasssin and several prints had been ■truck off from the negative. It was one of those rare and valuable prints that Mr. Hall, by hard hustling, managed to ob tain. How, does not matter. He was offered $50 for the print a few minutes after he secured it. The same afternoon the New York Journal offered $500 for a photograph and got none. One of the valuable features of the photograph is that the negative from •which it is made has not been retouched and retains all the lines of the face neces sary for making a study of the man's character. SNAKE SIX FEET LONG IT WAS KILLED HERB TO-DAY the Bis Reptile Laid Out Near the Armory by a. Man With a ■ '•Two-liy-Fonr," • A snake six feet long was killed yetter ifiay at Eighth street and First avenue 6. His snakes-hip, a fat, spotted, sinuous reptile was first discovered in the street wriggling along apparently out for a sun fcath. . - •: : : ,' : It moved slowly as If chilled to the bone Or crippled by rheumatiz and was not dis posed to make trouble. ■ : i The unusual discovery soon brought a crowd and before long the news of the find vent broadcast through the neighborhood, bringing alarm to many households. "\ .'.; . The man who discovered the wriggler Celt called upon to do something. He se cured a "two by four" with which he pro ceeded to beat the snake into the ground. Then th© statistical man in the crowd pulled out a tape measure and ascer tained that the serpent was exactly five feet eleven inches in length. It was then placed on exhibition in front of the Hay ward buggy warehouse. After a time a saucey A. D. T. boy cov eted the snake.

WILLIAMSON The Face Show* No Marked Traces of Degeneracy —Problem a Difficult One. The face of Czolgosz, President McKin ley'e assailant, according to the opinions of expert criminologista, is, weak rather than bad. It displays no marked traces of degeneracy, but indicates clearly enough that the man is readily susceptible to out side influences. Dr. A. P. Williamson, one of the best known alienists of the northwest, agrees with this estimate of Czolgosz's character. Dr. Williamson has made alienism his hobby. For many years he was connected with one of the state insane asylums, and his library is filled with work 6on degen eracy and kindred subjects. Said Dr. Wil liamson: •'The face of Leon Czolgosz is decidedly weak, but it exhibits no marked traces of degeneracy. At least, nothing of the kind is to be noticed in his published photo graphs. The mouth and chin are very weak. The lips are a trifle thick, and that is sometimes regarded as a mark of de generacy. The head is-perhaps too round; the oval head being considered the better type. The man is undoubtedly easily in fluenced, and predisposed to follow along the line of least resistance. He lacks will power. In one of the photographs his ears seem to be set rather low down on the head. That is considered a bad sign, but as it is not noticed in the other photo^ graphs, H may be simply a trick of the camera." It is, of course, a difficult task to esti mate the character of a man simply from a photograph, unless the subject is a pro nounced type. The color of the eyes and hair, the expression of the eyes, and the actions of the subject, all of which are lost in the photograph, are invaluable aids in reaching a correct conclusion in such investigations. However, so far as the photograph may be utilized, authorities agree that the face of Leon Czolgosz is weak rather than bad. It is not the face of a typical murderer. In making, his estimate of Czolgosz's character Dr. Williamson spoke with three photographs before him, furnished by The Journal. ♦"A REGULAR DEVIL" Leon's Father Prophesied His Son Would Be Hanged. Detroit, Mich., Sept. 11. —The News this afternoon prints an interview with Albert Lemanski, an aged Pole, who was a neighbor of the Czolgosz family when they lived in this city, and for eight years sub sequently. The old man is quoted as say ing: This Leon Czolgosz was a regular devil. He gave his father no end of trouble. The old folks were licking him with a strap all the time, but on the whole it did no good. Mrs. Citolgosz thought Leou was crazy. He was bright in his books, but indolent. Paul Cxol gosz, the father, always predicted that Leon would die on the gallows. His words, were: "Leon, if I don't knock it out of you with a strap, you'll swing some day." Leon was a vicious boy. Ho used to abuse the horses if he was angry, and he delighted in torturing animate- around the farm. When given a severe drubbing he never cried. The boy was a pervert,' with little sense of right or wrong. GOLDMAN EXTRADITION Lawyers See Difficulties in the Way. Chicago, Sept. 1 11.—It is the opinion of several lawyers that Miss Goldman can not be extradited for trial in New York unless she and Czolgosz are charged with an offense under the federal statutes. The suggestion that the would-be assassin must be tried under the state laws of New York for assault with intent to kill would, it is said, preclude the possibility of Miss Goldman's being extradited as an acces sory before the fact, as her alleged incen diary statements were I not made in New York and she is not a fugitive from justice from that state. It is said, however, that she and Czol gosz might be charged with an offense under section 5,508 of the federal statutes, which fixes a ten-year term of imprison ment and a $5,000 fine for two or more persons who conspire to injure any citizen in the exercise of any right secured to him by the constitution and laws of the United States. The enforcement of this statute against Miss Goldman and Czol gosz would, it is said, permit of the for mer's extradition from any state. FEDERAL JURISDICTION Cbolkosz May Be Tried in a United States Conrt. Special to The Journal. Washington, Sept. 11. —Officials of the department of justice say it is quite possi ble that Uie government may take the cus tody of Czolgosz and that he may be tried in a federal court. In this event he is likely to suffer a penalty much more se vere than that which would be imposed by the state laws of New York. Attorney General Knox was in consultation with Solicitor General Richards for several hours discussing this matter. The solic itor general is convinced, after examining the authorities, that the government has jurisdiction, though the attorney general, while he admits he has not made a study of the question, is inclined to doubt. Sec retary Root is quoted as agreeing that the federal courts have jurisdiction over the prisoner. BEFORE THE SHOTS "We Can't Get Near Him Here," Was Said. Norwalk, Ohio, Sept. 11.—Mrs. A. A. Manahan of this city, who has returned from Buffalo, tells a sensational story in connection with the assassination of President McKinley. j She says she saw the fellow on Thursday in the crowd which was being addressed by the president, standing within a few feet of him. He and a confederate, a tall, thin man, who she thinks had a scar on his face, were pressing their way through the crowd. Czolgosz had a white cloth around his hand and she remarked to her husband that she did not believe that his hand was hurt, as he hanaied it In a care less manner, but thought him a pick pocket. She heard one of them say: "This is too much for us. We can't get near him from here." WOMAN WAS DESPERATE Wa* Looking; for a Chance to Shoot a City Official. Mrs. Josephine Sinkowski of Northeast Minneapolis was at the city hall with a gun yesterday looking for W, M. Johnson, superintendent of the poor. The police officers took the weapon from her. Mr. Johnson had consented to serve as an ar bitrator in an insurance dispute, but mat ters movexl too sJowly and Mrs. Binkoweki determined to hurry them up, apparently feeling that Mr. Johnson was in collusion with the company. She declared her deci sion to shoot some one, and had Mr. John son not been absent when she called at his office there might have been a tragedy. The board of arbitration to settle the dis pute, it seems, had arrived at a decision but Mrs. Sinkowski had not been notified.

VIRUS FOR FAIRIES The Entire Dewey Theater Bunch Is Vaccinated. MGR. RELUCTANTLY LETS $25 GO City Attorney's Office Declares That tVe» for Compulsory Vaccina tion Are Illegal. Literally and figuratively speaking, the members of Fred Irwin's Burlesque com pany at the Dawey theater are feeling very sore. Literally each and every on* of them is sore because of an abra sion on nib or her left arm. Figuratively, they are "sore" at the Minneapolis health department for inflicting the wounds upon them. What galls them most is that, in addition to the torture, the management was forced to pay $25 for the privilege of having the company's arms punctured. Manager W. L. Ballauf and thirty-four funmakers and fairies were vaccinated shortly before the opening of the matinee performance at the Dewey. yesterday by order of the health department. That was why the women members of the company wore large white rosettes on their left arms. The heavy villlan of this little curtain raiser waa Dr. W. H. Hanscom, medical inspector of tlie health department, and he' had a confederate. They appeared upon the scene shortly before the curtain was rung up, and informed Manager Bal lauf that the performance could not pro ceed until every memiber of the company had been vaccinated. Dr. Hanscom explained that a eniall-pox suspect had recently been removed from a hotel, at which the company was stopping, and that, in accordance with the provi sions of the city health ordinance, every one in the hotel who had been exposed must be vaccinated. Manager Ballauf cheerfully acquiesced, and the chorus, the leading ladies and the actors proceeded to get in line. Then the instpeotore made short work of It. The manager heaved a sign of relief when the ordeal was over, but his eyes opened wide with astonishment when Dr. Hanscom said: "One dollar each, please." Ballauf strenuously objected, but was assured that it was the "regular thing." At this juncture W. W. Wittig, resident manager of the theater, took Dr. Hanscom aside and "gave him a talk," at the con clusion of which he announced that the health department would accept $25. "It appeared to be a case of hold-up," said Manager Ballauf this afternoon. "I thought we were lucky to get off as easily as we did. 01 course, if that is the reg ular thing in this city, I make no com plaint. It is the first time I ever heard of such a thing. I had understood that the city always paid for compulsory vaccina tion. I know they never think of making a oharge in other cities." The city attorney's office Is authority for the statement that there is nothing in the city ordinances which gives the health department or its inspectors the right to charge for compulsory vaccination. As a matter of fact, placards aTe posted at conspicuous places abouj the city inform ing the public that the health department vaccinates free of charge. The same authority holds that, strictly speaking, the $25 which figures in the case,, was unlawfully collected, even though it was turned into the city treas ury. Dr. Hanscom denies that, the members of the company were vaccinated against their will. Bald he: "The smallpox suspect was taken from the hotel Friday, and I did not consider the vaccination of the members of the company absolutely necessary as a health precaution. I told the manager Sunday night that it would be a good idea to have his people vaccinated, as they might be held up in St. Paul. I explained that as it was not compulsory, we would do the work without remuneration, and that he was free to have some other physician do the work. He replied that he preferred our at tendance, and we accepted the contract for $25. That's all there is to It." THE BURLINGTON Belief Gt. Northern and Nor. Pacific Must Contribute a Million Each. Special to The Journal. New York, Sept. IL—ln view of the in teresting events and developments con nected with the Great Northern, the Bur lington and the Northern Pacific during the past year, and conflicting statements as to just where James J. Hill has been left by the struggle between the Hill-Mor gan and the Harriman factions, there is unusual curiosity and interest concerning the forthcoming report of the Great Northern, through curiosity .as to just how Mr. Hill will justify the Burlington deal. It is not considered likely that the report of the Northern Pacific, which is also due, will make any material revelations, be cause the deal, so far as it affects that property, was engineered, supposedly, by J. Pierpont Morgan and the directors. On the other hand, Mr. Hill personally and alone, so far as disclosed, acted for the Great Northern, so that his annual state ment, it is assumed, will deal with the subject at more than ordinary length. Further interest attaches to this report because of changed conditions. It ie said that the financial interests concerned are nov,' getting down to hard facts. The lat est reliable estimate* provided for a heavy shortage. In other words, It is the firm conviction of those who should know that the Great Northern and the Northern Pa cific will be obliged to give $1,000,000 each from their own earnings for Burlington dividends. Just how the situation will be met is not explained. It is not believed that Great Northern and Northern Pacific money will toe paid over to Burlington bondholders, but some expedient will meet the case.

A DEMURRER MAY BE ENTERED The Stntua of Grand Jury at Time ludlctutent Waa Returned In Involved. Pale and emaciated from the effects of a long seige of typhoid John Kane, who shot and seriqusly wounded Lawrence Tuscany the evening of Aug. 3, appeared before Judge Harrison yesterday and pleaded net guilty of assault In the first degree. Kane's attorney, H. S. Mead, asked the privilege of withdrawing the plea before Monday next, and it is understood that he may enter a demurrer alleging that the indictment is not legal inasmuch as the grand jury was supposed to have been ad journed at the time the indictment was brought in. , Mr. Mead asked Judge Harrison for an order directing the clerk of court to grant him access to the records of the last grand jury to enable him to determine whether the jury had adjourned sine die at the time the indictment was returned, but the judge said he would take the question under advisement. Judge Harrison ex pressed the opinion that a sight of the jury records would be of no benefit in this instance, as the court alone could ad journ the jury and any action that body might take of its own notion would be of no effect. The records of the court do not show that the jury was adjourned at the time in question, but it is fairly well estab lished that something like an adjourn ment was taken on the day in question and that the record at that time did show such an adjournment. The court holds, however, that it has the right to correct its own records. Kane is charged with having shot Tus cany because of the latter's relations with Mrs. Kane. He was in the employ of John C. Sodini, who furnished $1,500 bail. more: grand jurors Special Venire Drawn— Jury I» Dis posed to Probe.

COPPER FOR WORLD Priceless Values in Valdes and Prince William Sound Country. RAILROAD AND CAPITAL NEEDED Copper Interest* May Surpass in Richness the Gold Discov eries of the Klondike. Special to The Journal. Tacoma, Wash., Sept. 11. —The steamship Bertha is in from Valdes, Kadiak and Cook Inlet points with sixty-one passen gers and 238 sacks of ore from Latoosh Island copper mines. Robert Blei, who is connected with im mense copper mining and oil interests in the Valdes and Prince William Sound country, was a passenger down, and brings wonderful re<ports of the copper interests in that section of the country. "The values around Valdes and on Prince William Sound," said he, "will revolutionize the copper markets of the world. J. D. Mennach, a mining man who is largely interested in Virgin Bay, in Prince William Sound, has made an estimate that he has $50,000,000 worth of copper in sight. The whole of tho Prince William properties are proportionately as rich as Mennach's and there are mil lions of tons of high-grade metal in the interior of the country back of Valdes. The only thing that has been wanting to develop the country is capital. Several syndicates end New York mining men have been investigating the deposits and the development is now assured. The drawback to the interior country, of course, is no railroad, but it is almost certain now that one will be built. "Oil has created some excitement, and when I left evreything for miles around Coal Bay, where the discovery was made, had been staked. "I can't say too much for the country myself, and mark my words, the Valdes copper interests will surpass in richness the gold discoveries of the Klondike." A. B. lies, a mining engineer of New York, who retured from a trip of in vestigation to the Valdes country, also gives the most encouraging reports. He went up in the Interests of a New York syndicate.

HOLD REUNION WITH ADMIRAL Authoritative Statement That Samp son Will Not Take the Wltnean Stand. Hmw Turk Sun Spaolal Sorvfce Washington, Sept. 11.—Nearly the entire official staff,of Admiral Schley's flagship, the cruiser Brooklyn, who served through the West Indian campaign, is in Washing ton ready to appear before the court of inquiry that meets next Thursday. The officers include Captain Cook, Executive Officer N. E. Mason, Navigator Albion G. Hodgson and lieutenants and ensigns who fought on the Brooklyn during the run ning flght with Cervera's fleet. Admiral Schley met his old shipmates in Judge Wilson's rooms at the Shoreham last evening and the greeting between them was hearty and affectionate. The officers had assembled in the room by previous appointment and were chatting with Judge Wilson when Admiral Schley entered. The admiral came in with a rush and when he looked ai-ouud and saw Cap tain Cook and the others in the attitude of attention he halted with considerable abruptness. In a moment the admiral was the center of the entire group, with every man shaking his hand or throwing his arm about his shoulders. For half an hour nothing was done but exchange greetings and talk about the national tragedy at Buffalo. Adlniral Schley was deeply moved at the character of the greetings extended to him while the men who fought on the Brooklyn under his direction made it clear that their love and admiration for their old commander is as unbounded to day as it was when they were serving to gether in the Caribbean sea. During the consultation that followed the officers one after another outlined the testimony they will give before the court of inquiry, and while Admiral Schley's lawyers were indisposed to discuss what was said it is known that the testimony will be entirely satisfactory to the ad miral's side of the controversy and will do much to make clear the disputed points of the battle. The navy department has admitted that W. H. Stayton, the New York lawyer who has been retained t by Sampson, Crowinshield and Chedwick, visited the department last week and stated that Ad miral Sampson would not take the wit ness stand. Mr. Stayton suggested the idea of presenting to the court an affidavit from Admiral Sampson containing his statement about the various points at issue. The rules and practice of the navy department are all againat the ad mission of an affidavit of this character and it was pointed out that an affidavit 1 porting to come from Admiral Samp son, owing to the nature of his malady, would necessarily be under suspicion. WHERE METALS LIE New Device That Will Locate Ore Ledges by Electricity. SPOKANE MINERS INDORSE IT Principle as Described by- a. Chicago Attorney la Old, but Applica tion Is Sew. Special to The Journal. Spokane, Wash., Sept. 11. —An electrical device that may revolutionize prospecting is to be tried in the mining camps of this section. It has been submitted to John A. Finch, A. B. Campbell and other local mining men, who consider the idea easi ble and. based on scientific principles. Ernest Dale Owen, an attorney of Chi cago, who is president of the company back of the device, said last evening: '"Our invention is an electrical apparatus for locating mineral in the earth and for indicating the quantity of the metal and Its depth below the surface. "It is impossible to give a description of the principle in a few words, but put ting It in as short a form as possible, it is this: A streak of metal in the earth has more contactivity than the earth on each side, and we have a system by which we can measure that contactivity as com pared to the earth. "We drive rods into the earth at any given distance apart, which may be 100 or several thousand feet, and connect these by wire on the surface. The electric current Is sent over this wire from one terminal to the other. As is well known to electricians, this current will make a circuit through the ground so as to get back to the place from which it started. This principle is used in telegraphy and by telephone companies. In making this circuit the current will seek out the path of least resistance, and if there is a con ductor In its path in making this ground cirouit, or near enough to influence it, it will seize upon such conductor. "A metallic streak or body in the earth would form this conductor, and we have delicate electrical appliances for measur ing this resistance or conductivity. We move these terminals driven into the ground to a great number of different points over the area proposed to be sur veyed and by a method of comparison we ascertain where the metallic streak is to be found. "The principles Involved are not new, but it is the method of their appliance that is the invention. Both this method and the apparatus are 1 covered by pat "ln my opinion It -will not be long be fore we will revolutionize prospecting and market what has heretofore been a guess a scientific certainty. "It should not be confused with mag netic appliances operating by attraction or repulsion, it Is on an entirely differ ent principle. "This is our first step for commercial purposes, and we have made two locations of gold properties not far from Pierce City Idaho. We have not been able to prove them up entirely, as we were driven out by forest fires. We succeeded, how ever, in doing enough digging before we were obliged to leave to find that the operation of the instrument was exact.

GIRL PHILOSOPHERS STORY How the Accident Insurance Man Men With an Accident. Chicago News. "You know Tom," began the girl phi losopher, twisting a new ring about her third finger. "Yes," exclaimed the other two in chorus; "when is it to be?" "You know Tom," began the other again, who would tell things in her own way or not at all. "And you know there was a fire at our house, in which the old maiden lady on the third floor had her nose seri ously burned. What lam going to tell you is related both to the fire and to Tom. It was the evening after, and I was prac ticing at the piano, trying to appear as though I were not awaiting him. For merly, when waiting for the man whom I was going to marry, 1 would have been reading a book. But they all seemed to see through that. They knew very well that the book was a ruse, and that I was just making up my mind what to say after the first greeting. So I ceased reading, and nowadays practice on the piano." "It is hard to know what to say after that first greeting, remarked the fluffy haired girl. "13 it?" asked the sallow young woman, innocently. "Yes," replied the philosopher. "One is apt to grow red and look silly. Then he always says: 'Well, w rhat are you laughing for?' and you always reply: 'Nothing at all,' and then you giggle. He laughs in little jerks, and asks you how you are. You say: 'All right. Hasn't it been a perfectly lovely day?' I used to get a book just before he came and think out things to say during such trying mo ments, but now 1 play the bumble bee song or something which is not too noisy, for I always manage to hear every foot fall on the veranda. That evening after the fire I was singing"— "What risks you take!" ventured the sallow young woman. "So I failed to listen for the footsteps as usual," proceeded the speaker. "I had just reached a high note and was en deavoring to get that vocal quiver that is so fetching, when some one directly be hind my chair coughed slightly. It was so sudden that I forgot all about the line of action I had planned. I had intended to be cool to him, for, you see, I was most —cr —cordial the evening before. You should never be too cordial to a man twice in succession, you know." "I know," answered the fluffy haired girl, with a conclusive nod. "But it was awfully sudden," said the sallow young woman. "Did you mistake him for a book agent?" "No such good luck, or good behavior, either," admitted the philosopher. "I just said: "Oh, Tom," and I am afraid I left some of my new powder on his coat. He seemed to be about as surprised as I, for he backed away several steps and, removing my hands gently from his shoulder, remarked: am afraid you are mistaken.' " "What!" exclaimed the listeners. The philosopher nodded vigorously and bit her lip as though she waa about to laugh or cry. "It wasn't Tom at all," she finally gasped weakly, "but an acci dent insurance man, who had come to see about the maiden lady's burned nose. The maid answered the door, you know." "What did you say?" inquired the fluffy haired girl. "I must have stammered a little, but I remember saying that I thought he was some one else." "And he?" "He said he wished he were." "Impudence!" ejaculated the sallow young woman. 'You really should tell Tom at once, for as long as you are wear ing his rings"— I "But it is not his ring," said the phi losopher, defiantly holding up her hand. "It's the accident insurance man's." Her companions looked at each other in speechless surprise. The fluffy haired girl finally managed to inquire: "When?" "Since one week after he came out to inquire about the injuries of the maiden lady. Wasn't she a dear to poke her nose into the fire?" THE HABITS WE FORM That of Counting; Seems to Be an ■ Outgrowth of Nerroaineu. New Orleans Times-Democrat. "I have fallen into the strangest habit In the world," said a newspaper man who lives down below Canal street, in a part of the Old Quarter, "and I am often greatly embarrassed on account of the thing. The counting habit has become a perfect ma nia in my case. I would give anything if I could quit it all. I want to count everything. I .do count everything. One day recently I was walking home and I must have been going at a pretty rapid pace, for when I came to my senses —for really I had lapsed somewhat on account of a certain mental violence —I was about to burn up. 'Hello, old fellow,' said a friend of mine, as he patted me on the back. "By the way, what on earth are you walking so rapidly for?' he continued. 'Well, sir,' I said, 'I will be very frank with you about it. I am simply rushing along her like an idiot counting these telegraph pole*. I have been counting them for some time and [ I always rush from one to the other Just like there was Immediate danger of the next pole disap pearing before I could get to it.'- My friend laughed heartily at my embarrass ment.

So I am not the only fellow who indulges the useless habit of counting things. , Really, it is very com mon, I have heard of many men who would count the number of steps home, or the number of cars that would pass, or other objects just so they could Indulge the habit of counting things. Sometimes it is a trifle annoying, but there Is no harm in it. Sometimes it is unconscious work, and I find myself actually thinking vigorously about some serious business matter while keeping tab on the numbor of telegraph poles as I glide by them." MANEUVERS OF A REPORTER Scheme t>y "Which He Forced an lv- tervievr front l'ar!>burst and Hull. The well-known Rev. Charles H. Park burst of New York makes a point of being very courteous to newspaper men, and is always willing to be seen and inter viewed. He sets aside one hour each day to be at home to callers In general; but to newspaper men he is at home at near ly all times —except on Saturday night. That night, he devotes to final preparation and thought for his work of the next morning, and his rule has been never to be at home after 6 o'clock on Saturday evening. In that particular he Is like the late Dr. John Hall, who would never allow himself to be seen on a Saturday night. Dr. Parkhurst is a Presbyterian, and so was Dr. Hall—in fact, they were the two most distinguished Presbyterian minis ters in the city. About 10 o'clock on a certain Saturday night a report came into a New York newspaper office that some body of Cana dian Presbyterians had taken exception to passages in a book of Rev. John Wat son's —lan Maclaren —and that they even talked of forcing the matter into regular church proceedings against Dr. Watson on account of alleged heresy. "Go and see Dr. Hall and Dr. Park hurst," said a city editor to a reporter, "and get a full talk from them in regard to this." The reporter knew very well that the city editor did not expect him to get those interviews, but was sending him on a "forlorn hope." But he merely took the assignment without any comments, and went out. He went first to the house of Dr. Hall, on Fifth avenue, that being the farther of the two from the office. He knew that if he sent up his card he would merely receive a message that Dr. Hall could not be seen. He decided, therefore, that the doctor must be made to feel an in terest in the information that he (the re porter) was to give. The servant who opened the door recog nized him as a newspaper man, and grinned. "You know the doctor won't see you on Saturday night," she said. "Just tell Dr. Hall," said the reporter, "that I have news of an intended trial for heresy of lan Maclaren." The servant took the message and In a few moments the giant form of Dr. Hall came hurrying down the stairs. "What's that about lan Maclaren?" ha cried. The reporter told him, and then got a good Interview from him in regard to it. Then to Dr. Parkhurst's house. Again the face of a servant who had frequently seen the reporter, and again the words: "You know the doctor won't see you on, Saturday night." But the newspaper man wrote on his card: "To tell you about a report of an intended trial for heresy of lan Maolaren." In a few moments Dr. Parkhurst's voice was heard. "Come right up hare. Coma right up to my study." The news was told and a second inter view gained. The reporter was back at the newspa per office before midnight and walked up to the city editor's desk. That tired faced man looked up. "I have been to see Dr. Hall and Dr. Parkhurst," said the reporter. "Wouldn't be seen, of course?" said tha editor.
