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

"However, when I place a man In

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

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.
There Is still much uncertainty as
to the progress that hai been in the
negotiations for the release of Sir
Harry MacLean. There are rumors

has had an interview with Koroa's
deposed emperor and with the new
ruhrr. Senator Stone, in summing up
the situation, said:
"From the Korean standpoint, the
situation Is pathetic. For the first

tentes were praying. Talles Invited
Marques out of the church to settle
the quarrel. The boy accepted the
challenge and Talles shot him as he

Her Bonflre Beside Track Resulted
In Hundred Passengers Escap
ing Injury and Death In '
Swollen Stream Beneath
a Trestle.
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

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
