These wero the words that Henry J. Roy
spoke to his brother. IjaMis H. Roy. on Oc
tober 7. JSS9. Just before his death, which
was caused by an lnternnl hemorrhage. As
tho dying man spoke, his brother clasped his
hand and promised that he would ever
revere his memory, and that he would
guard his wire, Martha E. Roy. as though
she were his own.
Little thought Louis Roy that the comely
young brunette who stood opposite htra at
the deathbed and heard his promise to her
dying husband would some day be his
bride. But this was exactly what fate had
destined for her and him. Just eleven
months to the day she became his wife, and
Mr. Roy yesterday renewed his promise be
foro the altar to ever "exercise a. watch

.Mr. and Mrs. Roy were married In Clay

her husband not to make any statement

ANNIE RUSSELL'S NEW PLAY.
"A Royal Family" Proves to Be a
New York. Sept 5. "A Royal Family," a
three-act "comedy of romance." by R.
Mars-hall, author or "His Excellency the
Governor," was performed to-night for tho
tlrst time in this country at the Lyceum
Theater. With Miss Annie Russell as the
star and an excellent supporting cast, the
play passed off to a rippling accompaniment
of laughter, followed by curtain calls after
each act. It was- a decided success, not
only as a charming bit of fanciful play
,w riting, but from any point of view.
The main story Is very simple that of a
Princess who obstinately refuses to marry
a Prince delected for her for state reasons,
and who. when the Prince woos her in dis
Kuisei promptly falls desperately in loe
with him. The theme has often been used
before, but what is more lnteretlng to
I.laygoers than an old story told with a new
touch? With the love episodes one of the most
delightful progresses up a tree kept well
to the fore, the play nevertheless owes
much of Its success to Its gentle satire on
royalty. At the hrst London performanco
no one. it is said, enjoyed this chaff at the
formal etiquette of courts more than the
Prince of Wales.
The scene U laid in tho Kingdom of Ar
cacia. which Is only to be found in gazet
teers of the kind in which Shakespeare dis
covered UJyria. This freedom of environ
ment aids the author's imagination. There
are lines of Gilbertian flavor. The Princess
'declines to marry for geographical pur
poses." A convenient falsehood is called a
picturesque adaptation of the truth." Ono
of the sly digs at royalty Is supplied In tho
equerry, who is ever at King Louis's side
with an assortment of Impromptu remarks
lor his Majesty's use.
The play was acted In the charming spirit
In i which it is written. Mlas Russell, as tho
Princess Angela, was arch, coquettish and
frankly Impulsive. et always within the
bounds of maidenly modesty.
Mr. Richman's role, that of the Prince
jroolng in dLsjulse, is rather colorless, but
be looked the character and made the most
of its opportunities. Mrs. Gilbert, as an
amusingly acerbic Queen Dowager, was ad
mirable. VT. H. Thompson's Cardinal Ca
sana was full of kindly concern for the fa
vorable outcome of the clever ruse to bring
the royal lovers together, which he himself
Others in the cast, whose work was espe
cially praiseworthy, were Orrln Johnson,
Lawrence D'Orsay and Richard Hennett,
whUe Donald Gallagher, a dear, wee boy,
played the child Prince of Arcncia (Charles
Ferdinand), was at once taken Into the
audience's hearts, and was ono of the hits
of the evening.
The play was sumptuously mounted.
HIS WAS A STRANGE CAREER.

New York. Sept. 5. Strange was the ca
reer of David M. R. King, who died In this
city a few .lays ago.
Forty years ago King canto to New York
from Troy, whero his family ranked among
the best. He came to try his fortune, but
luck was against him at first. He did odd
Jobs as clerk or bookkeeper.
He loafed around old book stores, for he
was fond of reading. His favorite rendez
vous was the bonk shop of Thomas L.
Davis on Sixth avenue. Darii and King
became fast friends. Davis prospered. Ho
presented his friend with books, and some
times gave him money
Not long afterwards Davis went to tho

flnla. where, at Portsmouth. she met Wii
tam R. Carr. a veteran of tho Mexican
and Civil wars. Brass buttons and epau
lets won. The quiet man at home was for
gotten. When King heard of this ho returned to
New York, deeply embittered. He told his
friends that he despised women. He would
not even buy papers from newswomen.
King became a cotton weigher. His life
'as that of a recluse.
As tlmo wore on King's savings increased
nd eventually he became a partner In the
brokerage firm of Lehman Bros. He ac
quired a fortune.
Then one day King saw Mrs. Katherine

doned Ellen Godutn.
In revenge the Injured girl dogged his
footsteps for twenty-three years. Her's was
a unique and terrible vengeance and was
nover abandoned until he had her arrested
and tried for lunacy, by which procedure
the whole story was made public to the
world. Miss Godwin never offered film vio
lence, but she followed him whercer he
went by day or by night.
If ho went to the theater rhe waited at
the door until he cume out and then fol
lowed him home, no matter how late tho
hour. Early In the morning she was be
neath his window and as soon as he ap
peared In the street a thin, delicate figure
in a plain black goun and heavily veiled

No threats, no entreaties coull Induce her

COTTON'S BIG ADVANCE.
Trading Marked by Heavy Bull
Speculation and 1'anic of Shorts.
New York. Sept. 3. The day In New- York
Cotton ExcLange was characterized by ter
rific bull speculation, a wild stampede of
shorts and violent fluctuations. Not since
the great effort made last spring to corner
the summer months, which, it will bo re
membered, proved a disastrous failure, has
the market been so active or have tho
prices advanced with equal rapidity.
The start was 5 to IS points above yester
day's closing, and was entirely in response
ton snarp bulge In the Liverpool market.
It gradur'ly developed that European spin
ners were In desperate straits for raw
cotton, and that shorts were In a precarious
condition, made serious by their inability
to secure cotton through scarcity of freight
room at Southern ports.
As the English market advanced, the local
contingent hammered away at the under
pinning of the shorts, who were eventually
compelled to abandon their position and re
treat without the least semblance of re
serve. The South. Wall street ami Llvorpool
deluged the market with buying orders, and
opening prices advanced by great strides,
with the near months leading in tho rise.
The report that fullv 5.H pieces of print
cloths had teen sold in Fall River, and a
story to tho effect that Southern spot cotton
holders were refusing to do business except
at pronounced ndvancc, stimulated buying
for both accounts In the arternoon.
At the close the bulls were In full control,
with the market ruling firm at a net ad
vance of 21 to S6 points.

Taylor avenue, ordering It sent to her own
house. Mrs. Ross claims that her husband
departed se-eral weeks ago, leaving lur
with two small children to enre for. She
says that Mrs. Hoorrmtnn. who is his sis

Mrs. Ros was arrested yesterday by

of having opened mall directed to another

Morscy. Complaint was made by Mrs.
Hoerrmann to the post oillcc authorities
that her mail had failed to reach her for
some time. The matter was Investigated,
and the transfer order discovered on the
regular transfer flic.
When Mrs. Ross was arrested yesterday

she was committing a crime. Her two chil

Mrs. Rom is almost destitute. She carried
her youngest child In her arms, having left

Judge Gray held tho woman In the sum or

her to go homo upon her promise to ap

near relatives are In the Fatherlind, whence
she came in 1S42. Her husband. Ludwig
Relnstedler, a prosperous cooper of the last
generation, died thirty years ago. Despite
her loneliness, and the fact that she dwelt
among people who speak a tongue unknown
to her, she has lived on and on with a smile
of good cheer upon her face, and with
wrinkled hands ready to minister to the
needs of all who sought her help.
A number of frienda called yiterday. In
anticipation of the event ot to-day, anJ
found the old lady busily engaged In darn
ing. She chatted merrily the whole after
noon without the slightest evidence of fa
tigue, and told story after story of her girl
hood In the old country. In her lap was a
tattered praycrbook, her dally companion
for almost a century, on the flyleaf of which
Is Inscribed her maiden name, Maria Catli
crina Metzle, and the date of her birth.
September 6. 1793. This little book is her
most precious possession; she know a Its
contents by heart, but reads it by the hoar
tvery day. She Is a devout Catholic, and
the book serves to comfort her In a meas
ure to make up for the lci sho feels In
no longer being ab'e to attend mass.
Neighbors say that Airs. Rcinstedler has
changed bo little within the last twen y
years that they are unable to note any
difference In her appearance. She sajs that
sh" feels no older than she did at SO. It
septals altogether probable that she will sea
the beginning of another year, in which
event she will have lived in three centuries.

He appears to have suffered no ill effects
from the Journey, however, and was pass
ing the summer quietly at Small Point when
the fatal stroke seized him. The uncon
sciousness which followed the attack contin
ued until death came.
Arthur Sewall was born In Bath In No

for years was prominent as a shipbuilder
and tho son fitted himself for the samo
trade. In 1SX. by forming the partnership

The audience evidently didn't want It. for
tho questions were greeted by loud cheers
and applause. Mr. Alschuler referred to a
conversation with a German during tho
forenoon In this manner:
"I asked him. and he 13 a Republican,
why he came to America, and he replied,
To escape high taxes.' The taxes were

maintained. Instead of the 13.000 soldiers
we had four j-curs ago. we now have 100.W).

satisfy us Americans.
"When we go Into the army business, into

will furnish the soldiers? The poor man

pressively advising his audience to vote for
the right as they saw the right, without
regard to party adulations.
He was followed by II. C. Bell of Marshall

"The Nations contend that these persons

"The law was Immediately seized upon
by unscrupulous lawyers and claim agents
and sent out to tho world. It was ralstd
and held aloft as a bncon. Hordes of
white adventurers, who had never lived In
the Indian Territory, nor claimed Indian
citizenship, responded by rushing in from
the borders of surrounding States. They
wero spurred on by their cupidity, and In
spired by the hope of acquiring, without
regard to means, allotments of the rich
lands of the Choctaws and Chlckasaws. Ap
plications tor citizenship were riled with
the Dawes Commission by the thousands,
and thus the laudable purposes of tho law
were prostituted to heartless and selfish
ends, and the lands of our people, con
veyed to them as a heritage by the great
father when the nation any century wero
young, were thus wickedly Jeopardized.
"While the rights of Choctaw and Chicka
saw citizenship, and the tribal laws that
govern, nre Identical, tho opinions of these
Judges upon several of the most Important
questions are exactly opposite.
"I recommend that you petition Congress
by a memorial of your body, carefully drawn
nnd specifically sctUng forth these past and
threatened wrongs to the Choctaws and
Chlckasaws In citizenship matters, and
earnestly request that such relief be granted
at tho coming session as will, in Its Judg
ment be Just nnd proper In the premises.
"The collection of our revenues known as
tribal taxes" Is a necessary Incident to the
continuation of our governments, as guar
anteed by the Atoka ngrecment.
"Within the last year our officers have
begun to vigorously prc these collections.
Many Individuals throughout the nation
have not only refused payment, but organi
zations of merchants and cattlemen have
been effected, attorneys employed, a fund
rolled, and other steps taken to aereat pay
ment. In my opinion these person have no
hope of defeating the law. but hope to thus
render collection so vexatious and expen
hlvp that our officers will become dis
couraged and cease efforts to this end.
"The courts nnd the law officers of the
Interior Department have uniformly held,

previous expressions, that the laws of the
tribes Imposing thee taxes are valid: that
the law of the United States regulating

Washington. Sept. C The officials of the

Interest upon the reported decision of Judge
Gill of the Federal Court for the Indian
Territory. This was rendered In the case of
George Rogers against Indian Inspector
Wright, restraining the Secretary of the In
terior from enforcing collection of the tribal
tax in the Cherokee Nation.
Rogers Is a merchant who has large
stores nt three places in tbe Cherokee Na
tion. The tribal law provides that each citi
zen of the Cherokee Nation selling merchan
dise shall pay a tax of one-fourth of 1 jwr
cent of all Invoices of goods received by
him for sale in the Cherokee Nation. The
Curtis law abolished the tribal courts, and
the Secretary of the Interior ordered the

Treaties Will lie Paused.
Washington. Sept. 5.-When Congress
meets again it will be called upon to enact
very Important legislation in regard to the
Indian Territory. The treaties or agree
ments formulated by the delegates ot the
Crtek and Cherokee Nations are pending in
the Senate, and probably will receive imme
diate consideration and favorable action
early In tho next session. Their ratification
will be of the greatest Importance to the
jieople of the Inulan Territory, as these two
nations embrace two-thirds of the IndUn
population of tho whole Territory.
following the ratification of these treaties
it Is evident that the question of Statehood
for Oklnhoma will be pressed with great
vigor. There are many who favor the crea
tion of a State to embrace the present
Territory of Oklahoma and the Indian Ter
ritory, the bill providing for this will be
opposed almost unanimously by all persons
who reside In the Indian Territory.
In Oklahoma there Is a division of senti
ment on tho subject, the relative proportions
of which have net yet been ascertained.
It seems probable that about one-half or
the people of Oklahoma desire a single
State, to embrace the two Territories, whllo
