Governor Curry last evening outlined a feature of his administration In no uncertain lawguage to a representa tive of the Citizen who called to see him. "There are going to he few re movals at least for the present. said the new executive, "but there Is one thing that 1 wish no mistake about. I SHALL EXPECT THE UN QUALIFIED, HON" E.ST AND SIN CERE SUPPORT FOR BOTH THE TEKR.IORIAL AND NATIONAL REPUBLICAN ADMINISTRATION FROM EVERY OFFICIAL HOLD ING- OFFICE on COMMISSION UN DER MY REGIME IN THIS TEU 1UTOUY." Means Kvery Word. The way In which the new gover nor made the above statement and the manner in which he emphasized each word, showed that he would see that it was complied with in so far as he has power. "Personally, I do not approve of the appointment of members of a legislature to office, he continued "because I do not consider It con- ductive to honesty or to good govern ment. At the same time, as I stated (before, I am not going to make many chft.nires at-this, time and my actions la the future will be governed to great extent ty developments. Officiate Must Work. "However, when I place a man In ontce under a republican adminlslra tlon, I expect him to support that administration and that party just as religiously as I expect him to give his whole heart and his whole efforts to wards making the people a good honest, capable and ettlcient otllclal W'ltrnever he can not conscientiously support such administration or do'is not care to do so for other reasons. then he certainly has no right to a (position of trust under a regime in wnicn ne is not in sympathy. Briefly, those are my views on the subject. "I am for the best government that can be had and the square deal and I feel sure It can be had better under republican administration such as Roosevelt has outlined than under any other that I see upon the politi cal horizon at present. I III re Kxeoutlve Ability. Governor Curry has rare executive ability. While he has been unable to settle down to steady work because of the constant stream of visitors to the executive office, he has neverthe less obtained a good Insight Into the affairs of his own and other territor ial ohiccs. Ilomcvclt Man. The new governor Is an enthusias tic Roosevelt man and he Is con structed along similar lines to tne president. He Is a man of action rather than words but he can make Kood use of both upon occasion. Governor Curry did not care to discuss resignations at this time. Street reports, however, are to the effect that quite a number have been tendered for acceptance at his pleas ure. With the exception of the attorney general, he has not made any changes and the indications are that" he will not give the matter of appointments much attention for a few weeks longer.

Gathering of Tribes Around Towns Causes Fear of Terrible Massacre. CITY OF TANGIER IS THREATENED HOURLY Repeated Attacks on French Sol diers Repulsed Thus Far-Sultan Fearing For His Llfa Has Fled Into Interior. Paris, August 13. The situation In Morocco today Is the most serious that has confronted civilization since the Boxer trouble in China in 1900. Unlike the Chinese of that day, the! lAioors are well armed, and thesecruel, wild Arabs of the desert are the most fearless lighters in the world. All reports indicate a gathering of the tribes, not only from the Interior of Morocco but from the entire nor'.h border of the Sahara desert. They are making mostly for Tan gier, the metropolis of Morocco, lo cated in the Meditteranean, outside of which are already gathered thou sands of fierce Mohammedan horse men, chanting from the Koran, preaching a "holy war" and thirst ing for the blood of the hundreds of Christians and Jews in Tangier. The, city could not be defended an hour against these fanatics once they made the plunge, and the powers are expecting to hear momentarily that a charge has been made. Every arriving steamer bring stories of fresh attacks made upjn and repulsed by Gen. Drudc's troops. Details are conllictlng, but generally they agree. After a heavy attack on the camp Drude in person established a post of 200 men east of the city to prevent horsemen charging the land ing place. This post was rt pis t city attacked throughout the day. , Ad vanced posts also were stationed to cover the city side, while the fleet .protected the side toward Raibat. Sev eral charges were beaten off. The trrbesmen In large masses approached the left main camp at full speed but as soon as they sighted the guns of the warships, the horsemen veered and effected a skilful wide turning movement, then suddenly wheeled and charged the camp from the right. The troops who bore the front of the assault emptied hundreds of saddles before the Arabs broke. The troopj lost two men killed and eight wound ed. The passengers say deeds of gal lantry among the troops were numer ous. The Moors aljo displayed a cour age which astonished the officers. Al though mowed down by quick-firers and volleys from the infantry for four days, they returned to the charge, showing extraordinary disdain for death. There is a persistent rumor here, which comes from Moorish sources and cannot be confirmed, that the nultan has left Fez for Rabat ami traveling by forced marches, has ar rived at Mazagan.

He says he is handling quite a lot of business with the big cities, but owing to the handicap caused by the large number of men off there, he is not unusually ibusy and consequently does not miss the retiring strikers to any extent at present. Business will not snow up nearly as well for the month. At the Western Union offices the condition Is about the same as yes terday. The arrival of messages is not large and all business Is taken subject to delay, as is also the cas with messages over the Postal lines.

Kansas City, Mo., August IS. Mn Minnie Houdeshell and her husband, an Atchison, Topeka and Santa F wetlon workman, live in a tent be side the railroad tracks three miles west of Ethel, Mo., a small town on th Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe near Marcelln and about 124 miles east of Kansas City. The were asleep in their canvas home when about 8:30 the woman was awaken ed by a crash. It flashed through her mind In an instant what the crash meant. "The bridge," she thought. Not far from the tent a bride spans a ravine. Mrs. Houdeshell ran to it and saw that the west stone abuttment had crumbled and fallen Into the ravine. The steel girders and the frame work supporting the tracks were gone, too. The ravine is seventy-five feet deep and about sixty feet across. With the ties clinging to them the tracks still stretched across the ravine so that the engineer on an approaching train could not have seen that the support ers of the structure were gone. Tlio Limited Waa Due. It was almost time for the Califor nia limited, one of the fastest trains on the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe system, .to pasa over the trestle on its way to China go. Knowing' this ana thinking of the accident that , would result, Mrs. HouijeshniS1 hur- ( riedly gathered some dry stick and built a fire on the tracks near the west end of the trestle. Then she awakened here husband and sent him with a lantern in the direction from which the train would ap proach. Houdeshell had just started when the train rounded a curve 400 yards from the structure. The engi neer saw the fire, but was unable tJ stop the train until It was within fifty feet of the ravine. Dr. W. H. Haviland, who live at 1232 Central avenue. West Side, was a passenger on a west bound train that arrived at the scene several hours after the bridge had fallen. Sho Only Had live Minutes. "The California limited had 250 passengers aboard and it whs scarce ly five minutes after the woman found the caveln when the train was stopped by the bonfire. When the passengers awoke and saw the tracks ucross the ravine, without any supports beneath, they acted as If they were crazy. The headlight on the engine would not have shown the true condition of the bridge; it would have appeared to be perfect ly safe. "Men gave Mrs. Houdeshell mon ey until she laid more gold' and sil ver than Bhe could carry in her hands. She wrapped It up in a cloth and when she counted It at 7 o'clock in the morning she had more than $800." Edward II. Lewis. a traveling salesmuji from Plymouth, Mich., who was on the train, started a pe tition that will be presented to the company asking thut Mrs, Houde shell be suitably rewarded. Heavy Huiiis t'austvl It. The collapse of the bridge was due to the heavy rnlns of the last few days In that vicinity. The sup ports hud apparently become weak ened under the masonry, causing It to lnk. The Atchison. Topeka and Santa Fe used the tracks of the Chi cago, Burlington and Quincy yester day and last night to Galesburg, III., but it was thought that their own service would be restored by this morning.
