Shaved By Murderous Lunatic He Forgot to Kill the Last Man. Old Bradley. (Sydney Herald). There were five of us hunting and fishing in the Queensland bush, when one rainy day a stranger appeared. He said he was a tramp barber, ana as none of us had been shaved for a fort night we gave him half a day's work. About four hours after he had left us, a band of six nun rode up, and th.e leader inquired if we had seen a tall. rougniy dressed man pass mat way. We told him of the barber, and he looked from man to man and exclaim ed: "Good gracious, but you are all fresh ly shaved'." "Yi?s, we gave the barber a job." "And he shaved every one of you?" "He did, and did it well." "Boys, do you hear that?" shouted the man, as lie turned to his compan ions. "What of it?" asked one of our party. "Why, he went insane yesterday, and cut a man's throat in his barber chair over at Unadilla and we're after him to put him in an sylum." They rode away at a gallop, and next morning returned to our camp with the man who had been captured after a hard fight and was tied on his hor&e. He seemed to remember us when he was given a drink of water, and as he handed the cup back he quietly observ ed: "I say gentlemen, please excuse me I meant to finish oft i'ie last man who got shaved, but I got to thinking of something else, and it slipped my mind!" (This recalls Bradley, a negro who once lived here and who during his residence carved a woman with a razor. Bradley was at that time a ticket-of-levae man from San Quentin, the fa mous prison of California. He had com mitted a murder up there with a razor. On reaching the Coast from here, Bradley was recognized, hunted down and placed again with the lock-step gang of San Quentin. He worked part of the time as a barber. One day a visitor was Judge Murphy of San Fran cisco, who had sentenced Bradley. The judge was invited to have a prison shave and more for a joke than any thing else, sat for the operation. He had been under the razor about a min ute when he recognized Bradley and from the look of the man and his1 ac tions became seized with fear. Judge Murphy was a good talker and he be gan to tell how his duty as a judge compelled him against his wishes to send men to prison. He explained care fully that his task was to only com plete the work of the witnesses, attor neys and jurors and that he could not be justly blamed for punishment inflct ed on any man. The judge was very much in earnest and Bradley listened intently and completed the shave. So soon as Judge Murphy left the chair he looked Bradley in the eye and said to him: "Didn't you intend to cut my throat with that razor." The darkey answered: "That's just what I did sir. I recognized you when you came into the place. I have hated you ever since you sentenced me, "but when you talked I saw I was all wrong and you were all right.") VOICE OF BRYAN. WASHINGTON. Dec. 16 William J. Bryan came to the House of Repre sentatives today, and was given a most cordial reception by his former col leagues in Congress. Col. Bryan expressed himself very emphatically to his Democratic asso ciates upon the duty of Congress in re gard to the Philippines. He believes that the islands ought not to be held longer than is necessary for the United States to establish there a stable and independent government, such as was guaranteed to Cuba in the resolution which led to the declaration of war, and he believes it is the duty of Con gress to make a declaration of the in tention of the United States at the earliest possible date, in order that there may be no misunderstanding in the future, and that the natives of th islands may be assured that the ulti mate purpose of the United States is to give them a free and independent government. VIEWS OF RIOS. LONDON, Dee. 17. The Paris cor respondent of the Times, M. de BIo witz, telegraphed this morning a long interview with the president of the Spanish peace commission, Senor Mon tero Rios. in the course of which he represents the Spanish commissioner as complaining that the "Americans had acted as parvenus, who do not yet know misfortune or defeat." Senor Rios remarked: "When later on they also have suffered reverses, they will be less inflexible to those who have suffered defeat." The Spanish commissioner contend ed, according to M. de Blowitz, that the Philippines are still unconquered and that their conquest would not be accomplished quickly. What most pained him, however, appears to have been "America's attempt to deprive Spain of her honor by refusing to ar bitrate regarding the Maine." 1 .f. . THE FRENCH FLEET AT TOULON.
