RAIDERS KILL 2,000 SHEEP.
Qttaer Method of Revenge Employed
by Montana Ranchmen.
It Exclusive Wire fro- Ths Atsoclsted Tria.
Miles City, Mont., Jan. 1. Masked J
and mounted raiders killed 2,000 sheep
on the range of Tootiey creek, n trbu
tary of Tongue river, near the Wyo
ming line, at daybreak yesterday. The
Rheep belonged to Daupt and Selway,
who are ranging about 6,500 head In
the Otter creek country.
The sheriff and deputies stnrtcd this
morning on their 100-mlle trip over
land. Out of the Daupt and Sol way
herders had his Hock of 2,000 sheep
at the upper corral on Tooney creek,
nnd was awakened before daylight by
shooting and yelling. Eleven men,
mounted on horses were riding around
the band f sheep and shooting into
them. There are conflicting reports
as to the methods employed by the
i alders. One stntement Is to the ef
fect Hint the sheep were driven Into
a cut and piled up in a struggling
mass, those not being killed by the
fall being despatched by clubs. An
other story says they were milled to
death ; that Is, driven In elides sand
piled up until the under ones were
smothered.
The feeling In the Otter creek and
Powder river country has been quite
bitter against these new outfits, and
yesterday's raid Is the result of this
feeling.

peoule had been received up to 1.30
o'clock, tho hour set for closing tho

stretched four abreast beyond the

trying ordeal with much composure,
remaining alongside the president
throughout. At one time, as a dainty
little girl stepped through carrying a
huge doll, Mrs. McKinley not only
erected the little girl but also shook
hands with the doll, to the Infinite de
Ught of the little mother. Later, when
a negro "Mammy" held down a tiny
baby, Mrs. McKinley chucked the tot
under the chin und tucked a rosebud
amid its laces.
it was 2 o'clock when the end of the
line appeared, nnd the president, wav
ing a llnat salutation to the; lingering

pale blue. The material was heavily
embossed satin and panne velvet, and

bands and a profusion of point lace.

THE AFFAIR A SUCCESS
Rear Admiral Hemey and Wives of
Army Officers Assist Filipinos
nnd Americans Mingle Socially.
Native Women in Picturesque
Costumes.
By TxclusUe Wire from The Anoclated PreM.
Manila, Jan.l. If President Mc
Klnley's New Yenr's reception proves
greater than that of General Mac
Arthur it will not bo the fault of tho
people of Manila. Tho general's re
ception wns the first social affair in
olllclal circles at which Americans
and Filipinos have mingled. For
three hours a stream of vehicles pass
ed through the grounds of the gover
nor general's residence and discharged
the callers olllclal nnd civilian. Tho
majority were nntlves, although there
was a sprinkling of foreigners. Tho
American flag, branches of nlpa flow
ers nnd vines piedomlnated In tho
decorations throughout the mansion.
Hear Admiral Hemey aided General
MncArtlnir In the reception of visitors.
Tho wives of several generals also as
sisted. The introductions were made by
General MncArthur's staff, assisted bv
members of the staf of Hear Admiral
Hemey. The callers, after bavin
been Introduced, passed out on a broad
balcony ovci hanging the Pasig river,
and n majority of them lingered about
the mansion until after the ceremonies
had been finished.
Airhblshop Chapelle. tho apostolic
delegate to tho Philippines, and other
ehuich dignitaries, were received first.
The members of the Philippine com
mission and the Judges nppearcd In
black frock coats, and their attlro
formed a decided contrast to tho white
and gold uniforms of the officers ot
the army and navy. Tho Filipino wo
men wore elaborate native costumes
and conversed affably In Spanish.
The use of carriage numbers wis
not understood by the hackmen, nnd
much confusion occuned outside.
WOMAN COWHIDES AN EDITOR.
Her Way of Resenting an Item She
Thought Refened to Her.
B i:clmle Wile from TJie Aswelated I'ren.
Cnrbondale, III., Jan. I. Elbei t H
Wnller, the editor and publisher of
the Ava Advertiser, was whipped with
a short cowhide whip yesterday by
Mis. John Connor for an alleged In
sult which appeared In the last Issue
of Waller's paper. The town Is of
less than 2,000 Inhabitants, but has one
daily nnd three weekly newspapers,
and a newspaper war has been In pro
giess for some lime. The article
which raused the tioublc Is In part as
follows:
"A grass, widow who for a long time
has read our paper and not paid for
It, returned her puper marked ru
lused. This knocked us clear out.
Her husband Is no longer sweet on
her 214 pounds of flesh and If the Isn't
careful we will toll something, as we
are not in school."
The description led the woman to
believe Waller meant her, and In com
pany with her brother-in-law and an
other man, she visited the editor's
sanctum. Mrs. Connor demanded an
imemdlato apology and Waller not
complying with her demands, he
drew the whip and struck him about
twenty times over the shoulders and
back.

London, Jan. 2. The Cape Town cor
respondent of the D.tlly Mall, who
dwells upon tho gravity of the position
In Cape Colony, says:
The Boer Invaders now number 5,
CC0. The western Invasion gives th
most concern. It has split Into two
divisions, which aie marching like the
prongs of n fork, one by way of Suth
erland toward Mnltimmiry and the
other toward Beaufort west.
"The enemy are now ranging oer
Immense tracts of territory, necessi
tating the employment of tin army
coips to deal with them. Lord Klteh-
ener has poured troops Into the dis
turbed ureas, but the fugitive ttictk-s
of the Iloers have, to a largo extent,
neutralized his precautions.
"It was felt that the only imans ot
excluding the Invaders from the rich
districts In the western part of the
colony was to call out the farmeis.
Today's telegtanis promise a splendid
response from the eastern portion, but
the western Is doubtful, not thirty per
cent, of the population being regarded
as loyal. Hence the Doer concentration
In that direction.
"Letters are arriving here detailing
damage and robbery by the Invaders
and beseeching military assistance.
Any action on the part of the colony
will not abate the urgent need of large
reinforcements."
Coleeburg, Cape Colony, Monday,
Dec. 31. Two hundred and fifty Bccim
captured fourteen men of Nesblt a
horse fifty miles southeast of Colea
burg. The enemy, since Increased to
SOO. has upneared near AVelterreden
and is driving olf stuck.
"The aspect of affairs Is scarcely lrsj
gloomy," sajv the Cape Town corre
spondent of the Times, "than at tho
beginning of 1000. The Invading liner
are numerically fewer, but they have
penetrated further south, and their
presence In such centers of hostile
Dutch leellng as Oraef Itelnet consti
tutes an element of danger which did
not e-xist last January.
"The proclamation calling for volur.
teem conies very late. The Invaders
have- been enabled to obtain fresh
horses. All the hoi-sen In the cokinv
ought to luive been comm.uideeied or
bought at the llrst sign of invasion."

Inertia and letlcence of the authorities.
