For years King Victor of Italy has been
collecting rare coins and writing a his
tory about them, and now he proposes
to publish this history; The reason why
he has decided not to postpone publi
cation aay longer is brause ha his jmt

tions of coins in the entire vfrorld, and he
desires that other collectors should know
all about the treasures it contains.

Agents of the British government
have purchased in the United States as
many as 70.Ö0J mules and 100,000 horses
since the war began with the Boer re
public. These animals ire destined for
service in South Africa, and are placed
on board ship at New Orleans. The de
«uand for mules aud horses in the Trans
vaal ha3 been so grjat that even worn
out, decrepit bursts have been accepted
for more than their real value.
John Clay, of Clay, R jbioaon & Co,, is
doubtful as to any improvement in the
lïunb market. vSpeaking of the situation
the other day, this is what he had to say:
"As to the sheep market, I would not
venture an opinion. One cause of low
prices now is the light demand from the
New England trade. Last year wo had
a good trade with the far east and it
helped out wonderfully, but this year
they seem to be served pretty well at
home, and very few are going beyond
Chicago. As an example of how the
trade is supplied east of Chicago, I
v.oticed one day recently about 25,000
head in the Buffalo market. Thereseems
to be nianj sheep and lambs waiting to
goto market. Very few of the big
bunches in Nebraska have been touched
yet, and we have hardly star'ed on the
Colorado supply. I have been hoping
for an improvement, but to be candid, I
hardly see where it is coming from im
mediately."
Gideon Dashmao, a fullblooded Sioux
Indian, was yesterday jpom'mitted to the
county jail by United States Commis

She's Nutty.
Topeka, Feb. 31.- Mrs. Carrie Nation,
tiring of jail life, has written Judge
Hazen a letter, demanding her release
"I want you to quit your fooling," ehe
writes, "and let me out of here. If you
cause me to miss my engagements, I
won't feel like being a ministering angel
unto you. It is time for jou to recover
yourself betöre the devil, your master,
makes a clean sweep with you into hell.
"You know you are perscuting one of
God's children who loves you for Jesus
sake. Let me out that I may go about
my business of saving such poor devils
as you. Write, or come to see me right
off}'
Judge Hazen ignored it, placing it
in the waste basket with dozens of others
received on the subject from different
parts of the country. Some of these let
ters "threaten the judge. One from
Bunker Hill, Kansas, says a committee
of 50 will administer a coat of tar and
feathers to the official if Mrs. Nation is
not released by Feb. 27, and another
from a woman in Douglass, Mich., says:
"We now propose, if Mr3. Nation is
held longer, to raise the greatest army of
women the world has ever known and
wipe man out of existence. It is our in
tention to begin with you."
Pat Crowe Located.
■Kansas City, Mo., Feb. 23.—It has been
supposed for a week past that Crowe
wr.s in hiding somewhere near Bellevue,
but the exact locality of his lair has been
kept so closely guarded that direct in
formation was unootainabla. Through
information obtained to night it is learn
ed that Pinkerton representatives nave
been working in the vicinity of Avery
and that Friday night one of their men
was looking for information below Al
bright-. These are two way stations on
the road to Bellevue.
A week ago Chief of Police Donahue
admitted that he had received informa
tion that Crowe was in hiding at the
rasidence of a friend where he was being
guarded night and day and that he had
been told it was useless to try to discover
the location of this house, but then
Chief Donahue then stated that the cold
water thrown on his search would not
deter him from prosecuting work in the
direction indicated by his informant.
It is certain tonight that Chief Don
ahue has located the house in which
Crowe is guarded and that he has five
companions with him, all armed to the
toeth, ready to resist any assault which j
may be made upon his stronghold.
Stronghold it is every sense of the word ;
for the place is that which f urnished the 1
notorious Vic McUarty immunity from j
arrest after every escape that desperado ;
!
made after committing numerous crimes
The flaunt of theCudahy kidnapper is
on Bellevue island, the most inaccessible,
impenetrable wilderness known to exist
in this portion of the country. Its very
Uiacessibility is what is making the
Omaha police cautious, for they realize
that an attempt to take Crowe means a
battle of no mean proportions. Hence
an attempt is being made tonight to gee
Sheriff Startzer of Sarpy county to or
ganize a posse to work from his end of
the line.
Startzer is known all over this section
for his success in hunting outlaws, and
he was the only man of all the hundreds
who sought Vic McCarthy who dared'
single-handed, to enter the veritable
jungle which prrtected that desperado
McCarty had fled, but Startzer's reputa
tion was enhanced by his bravery.
The exact action to be taken by tha
police cannot yet be learned, but the
raid which is being organized is without
question for Pat Crowe, and it is expect
ed that he will be in the toils of the law
before man}' hours.
Losing Ground.
London, Feb. 21.—The correspondent
of the Daily Mail with Henniker's col
umn, wiring Sunday says:
Gen. Dewet was routed yesterday by
Col. Plumer, with whom were Cols. Hen
niker, Craddock, Jeffries anJ Grebb.
This success was preceded by a series of
desperate attempts on the part of the
Boers to escape the water belt of the
Orange and Brak rivers. Gen. Dewet,
after unsuccessfully attempting to cross
Brak river at Klip Drift and Orange
river at Red Drift, moved aloeg with one
gun and one pompom and camped op
posite Kamiel Drift.
At dawn Col Plumer left Weigerfor-i
don, 22 miles west of the Boer samp, and
moved north. At Zuregat he attacked
the enemy, taking -io nri«'" o '= Th»
pursuit was continued during the after
noon, the lioers moving towards Hope
town. Towards evening the leading
troops sighted the enemy, who had
camped beyond range. The column
charged the spot where the camp waa
and captured the whole of it. The Boers
fled, leaving their horses already saddled
and their cooking pots full. According
to the latest reports only 400 Boers
crossed to the north side of the river.
The Orange river is greatly, swollen.

AY ret k of the Rio.
San Francisco, Fob.22.-A pilot's at-'
empt to bring in during a thick fog the
tempt
big Pacific mail steamer Rio de Janeiro
early this morning led to the wrejk of
the vessel on Fort Point Lodge, outside
the Golden Gate, and the loss of 122 per
sons out of a total of 2<K> on board. t
The explanation of the terrible loss of
life is that the vessel sank in fifteen
minutes after she struck, thus carrying
down most of the small boats which stil
hung on the davits. The officers showed
great coolness and the passengers ba
haved well until the bow began to sink
suddenly.
When it was seen that the vessell was
on the point of sinking there was a wild,
paeic. Men and women ran screaming
to the boats, only to find them not low
ered. Over one hundred Chinese were
huddled together below, simply dazed
with terror. Many jumped overboard
and were carried down by the suction of
the steamer. All about was thick dark
ness, which probably preveuted many
from escaping.
The most prominent passenger of the
steamer was Bounseville Wildman, Unit
ed States consul at Hongkong, who was
accompanied by his wife and two chil-.
dren. All were drowned. The ship was
'n command of Pilot Frederick Jordan
when she struck. He was rescued. Capt
William Ward went down with his ves
sel. Raports as to his fate differ. Some
say that he remained or. the bridge unti^
the last, directing the lowering of the
boats, while others claim that when he
saw that further efforts were useless he
went into his cabin, locked the door and
presumably committed suicide, as he
had threatened to do if he ever had a
wreck.
The fate of Cousul General Wildman
and his family was settled to-night by
Mrs. West, who saw them all, except one
child, in a small boat alongside the
' steamer. Just as the vessel sank a mast
I fell, cutting in two the boat in which the
I Wildmans w^e and sinking it. As the
Wildmans were not seen afterward they
doubtless sank with the vessel.
Blizzard in Alaska.
Minneapolis, Feb. 22.—A special to the
Times from Tacoma says: Terrific
Btorms have practically stopped travel
from Skagway into the interior of Alas
ka. Two unknown frozen men were dis
covered iast week in a 8QOW drift near
Bennett, on the Atlin trail.

letter to Butte, says the Standard. He
tells abut the doiugs of Jerry Flanagan,
of Havre, who is there, picking up flesh
like a pig.
Tom Sharkey, the prize fighter, is also
there, and he has made himself thoro
ug ly liked by Mr. Flanagan. The two
may be seen together almost any hour of
the day. Jerry is the leader of the smart
set at the hotel. He has the swellest
golf suit in the town, but he has an
crange colored vest with gilt buttons;
which, I think is bad taste for his con
plexion. Every afternoon you may see
him playing golf with Tom Sharkey at
the park, and he is a hot one. Jerry's
age handicaps him. He paid §50 fur a
wig from Chicago, and when he gets into
that and his dress suit he makes them
all look wearv.
