A FEW THRILLS
Experience of Colonial
Boys With a Barber.
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."
