] otrited a brilliant scene, to a brilliant
pj audience. After the evidence or delight
from those acaemtoied In the auditorium
subsided, tho Opera House orchestra
artistically opened a concert which had
been eagerly anticipated.
Mint Mary Louise Clary, America's
?*- ??* contralto. was the first of tin*
evening's soloists to appear, and hep
;>v wwuttful voice, at once appealed to all.
Her selection, "Noble Slgnore," from
"Lea Huguenotn," wa# splendidly ming.
. and to cnthusiajttic applause, she rosponded
with the now famous "Ben
BoK." and she ?ung it well. While Mis**
Clary did good work li> the latter part of
the programme?"The Holy City." she
tvas at her very beat In the first number,
7Noble Slgnore."
' Mr. J. H. McKlnley. the tenor of the
fojj quartette, fairly fascinated the audience
with bin exquisite rendering of
"Swallows," and as encores "Dream*"
and "Tatters," the three recalls scarcely

and the work of the evening was
on. The solo parts, as before stated,
were In the keeping of Miss Hilke,
Miss Clary. Mr. McKLnley uml Mr.
Hughes, and all were well taken. Miss
ttllke's solo, "Out of Great Tribulation."
was very feelingly sung, perhaps
her very best work. Mr. tfcKlnley
entered Into the very soul of the
music, drawing all his hearers with
him and his solo *To the Lord Belongs

gem. Mlsa Clary's rich voice showed
to good advantage, and Mr.

noon on Thuraday, March ho will be
listened to by tho largest crowd of
WhMlngltcs that has ever Invaded the
sacred precincts of the state's capital.,
For ^he punt few weeks not much has
been said regarding the trip, and from
the surface It looked an though the proJect
hall fallen through. Not no, flowever,
for those Interested In the trip were
working up the affair quietly, and now
they come to the front with the assurance
of enough cltluenn who will g<?, to make a
respectable showing and secure a one
fare for the round trip.
President Bentley .Tones, of the Ohio
County Republican Club, has been diligently
working up Interest In the matter,
and to him will be due a great deal of
the credit. He has decided to call a
meeting of the club some time during the
coming week, for the purpose of appointing
committees, and arranging the pre- 1
llmlnarhs for the trip.
It Is the proposition that each of the
Ohio county Republicans wear the ordinary
dark clothes, silk hat and cane, and
In this uniform, the 200 men who are expected
to go. will make a handsome and
dignified appearanee. A'bra** band will
he engage! and nothing will be lacking
to make the trip a pleasant one In every 1
particular. The crowd will leave here
sometime during the afternoon of the 3d,
and will have a special train right
through. If the proper arrangements
ran bo made sleeping cars will take the
Wheel In ir delegation down, ana tney win

do away with the bather of hustling
around after lodging in the crowded city.

for the event, and as it will mark
the induction into ofllce of the first Republican
governor in- many yearn,
the Republican.* frcm all over the state
will be present in force. As the governor
comes from Ohio county, it is only
proper there should be more go from this
county than any other in the state outBide

and all those who can, should arrange
matters to go lo Charleston on the 4th of

PORT TOWNSEND, Wash., Feb. 4.The
steamer Alki from Alaska, brings
now* of a bloody chapter In the career
of "Bllm" Birch, the^ notorloua young
desperado, of Juneau, who, while
awaiting transportation to aerve n
three-year sentence In Han Quentln
prison, California, was released oy accomplice*
who visited tho Jail, overpowered
the Jailor, locked htm In a cell
and accompanied the escaping prisoner.
No tidings of Birch were received
until the closing days of January,when
Indians brought news to Juneou that
Birch and hln companions were sleeping
In a cabin, thirty miles from Juneau,
on an Island. Deputy Marshal
Hal*? at once chartered a steamer and
making up a posse, comprising Deputy
Marshal William Watts, Jailor
Llndqulst, Uuard Baysee and an Indian
policeman, started In pursuit. The
cabin was located the following day,
after a torturous trip over rough,
snowy cauntry, omld terrific cold. Bad
generalship In the charge on the cabin
permitted two of the Inmates to escape
to a rocky eminence between
wl\lch and the cabin the posse wus situated.
A terrible battle then began,
Watts being*shot twice. Hale once seriously
and Baysee wounded In both
legs. Ten minutes auccceded in starting
all the posse excepting poor Watts
on the back trail from the scene of the
fight, to where the boat was anchored.
'Watts being left at the mercy of the
outlaws, on the hill, they shot him
several times where ho lay half dead
between two logs. The steamer made
all hnste buck to Juneau with the
wounded men and n posse of twenty
men started out, returning the next
Watts was found dead, frozen stiff In
the snow, where his cowardly companions
had left him. The search was continued
for two days without success,
but the desperudo<>s were finally located
by Indians, lying asleep In u dense
underbrush. Word was carried to two
herculean fellows named Cheney and
Olsen, In a cannery, who made the capture
in a picturesque style. Unarmed,
they climbed a ledge twelve feet above
the sleeping and heavily armed pair of
bandits, and at a signal Jumped down
on them. Both men were manacled,
after n short resistance. Birch's lone
companion was also an old offender
named Snell, who robbed the Tredwell
works some years ago.
Both nre In jail at Sitka. Cheney and
Olsen will get the 15,000 offered for
Birch's capture.

MADRID, Fob. 4.?The queen regent
signed the plan for tho reforms In the .
Island of Cuba. Tho text of tho document
will be published on Saturday.
Tho scheme Includes numerous and
elaborate decrees and will occupy several
pages of the Official Gazette. It In
understood that the reforms consist
chiefly In the creation of an assembly,
to be called tho council of administration,
composed of thlrty-flve members,
of whom twenty-one are to be Heeled
by the people and six by the different
corporations. The remainder will be
one magistrate, one university president.
one archbishop and Ave former
senators or deputies.
The council of administration is cmpowered.
firstly, to prepare a budget.
Secondly, to examine Into the fitness
of officials appointed.
Thirdly, to make a tariff, subject to
the conditions of Spanish Imports having
advantage over the general tariff.
The governor general will represent
the home government and will have the
right to nominate officials, who should
be Cubans or Spaniards who have resided
two years in Cuba. Nevertheless, he
may freely nominate hlfih functionaries
such as magistrates, prefects, etc.
Other decrees concern the organization
Df the provisional municipalities, which
we to be liberally representative.
The municipal councils general will be
szto powered t<? elect their presidents and
will have exclusive control of public education.
According to another decree the government
reserves to Itself extraordinary
powers In the event of any disturbance
of public order, and Cuba will continue
to elect senators and deputies to the cortes,
as at present.
Altogether the reforms are much
broader In the direction or decentralization
than those granted to Porto Rico.
The powers of the governor general are
much extended, while the council of administration
l.t fairly representative of
nil parties nnd Interests.
The Spanish government will continue
to vote budgets and treaties for the colo.
The Spanish products, according to the
reform scheme will b?? allowed a rebate
9f 40 per cent of The Cuban tariffs, compared
with other Imports.
