In receiving Gov. Cleveland on Thurs- !

it the greatest ever in America. The city

age point where a glimpse of the
hero of the day could be obtained. Flags
and flowers and evergreens aud emble
matic drapery were everywhere
visible. The great men of
the nation were in Cleveland's suite.
His hand was shaken by thousands, and
thousands more were contented that he
bowed to them. From 10 o'clock in the

titudes reluctantly dispersed with the re
tirement of the central figure.
Bill Norris, the notorious train robber

A most miserable tragedy occurred at
LaCrosse, Wis., on the evening of Thurs
day. The Blaine and Logan club were
just forming into procession to celebrate
the Ohio election when F. A. Burton,
president of the club, was shot seven
times by a ruffian known as Scotty. Every
shot took effect and Burton died instantly.
The wretch who murdered him threw his
revolver at his victim at the same time
saying **That is the s— of a b

was then seized and put in jail
but the crowd followed very quickly and
in a short time were besieging the jail.
At 10:30 they had broken in the doors,
and fifteen minutes later Scotty's body
was hanging lifeless to the limb of a tree
in the jail yard.

post during the summer was at the
Norris Geyser Basin, was called in to
winter quarters at Mammoth Hot

the approach of winter, and the sta

better class of travelers were caieful
to extinguish their camp fires—though

his beat to see that smouldering fires
might not awake to devastate the
beautiful forests that adorn the Park.
No such fire occurred iu his depart

SCHWATKA'S RESIGNATION. '
He Is to Become a "Cowboy" In fbft
Service of the Scotch,
[Portland (Ore.) Sunday Welcome.]
It was announced among the dispatcher
recently that Lieut. Fred Scbwatka, U 8 .
A., had resigned his commission for tjft
reason, as intimated, that ho was about to
enter "foreign service. " The lieutenant la
not intending to embark in a change of flag,
but he is about to enter the Scotch service uBt
this wise: Last year he was deported Ly tfift
government to lead an expedition up tfie
Yukon river in northwestern Alaska to ex
plore its channel, resources, etc. He erased
to the river 1,200 miles above its mouth and
descended to the sea, making accurate
ord, in full compliance with his instruction^
but in the meantime he attended to *
little side show of his own. In ad
dition to what he was specially in
structed to examine and report upne
in the Aleutian island group, he discovered
and mapped out the central channel of tils
noted Japan current and its thermal effect
upon the temperature of the several iüandb
in it» track.
These islands are said to aggregate abouft
2,000 square miles, with a perennial climats
of about 60 degrees Fah. the entire year, and
covered with grasses and verdure adapted
for indefinite grazing, and having no parallel
on the planet for stock ranges. On the lieu
tenant's return from the Yukon expedition
he stopped in Portland and entered into con
fidential terms with "Scotch" Reid in reaped
to gobbling those perennial islamis for cattle
ranches, to be conducted under the auspices
of a corporation to be organized in Scotland
with "slathers" of capital to back the enter
prise, for which purpose Reid left here sev
eral weeks ago.
Lieut. Scbwatka is to take special superin
tendence of the business there, with a dije
ratio of non-assessable stock, of course, and
at the next session of a ngress (De*» volenffi)
we may expect to see Srhwatka's Yukon re
port placed before that body in "ship ähape
and Bristol fashion," with maps, charts, etc.,
miuus the Aleutian islands iu the .la;»an cdR
reut, to t<e probably supplemented by a
modest little bill to "civilize" a part of tfta
Aleutian group by a long lease similar to
that confet ied upon Hutchinson, Kohl & Ch.
foi fur-sealing privileges in the Ouualastn
region. If tLis programme is carried into
due effect, Schwatka, in lieu of being ta 9
a mere lieutenant, will be de facto the major
general "cowboy" of the world.
Mr. William E Scovil, of New York,
possesses k genius for finance that» is qui^a
equal, if not superior, to Mr. Ferdinand
Ward's. He was a clerk in a law office £>»
the munificent salary of 610 a week, yet .ho
lived in a $60,000 mansion maintained In Çio
most magnificent style, drove his brokf
about in handsome carriages, and took de
in Wall street that often amounted to 111
000. It is not every man that can make
a week go so far and do so much. Mr.
vil'a way of doing it was simple enough,
employer was rich and confiding. Mr. ^
vfl abstracted his bonds from his safe, fqnwfi
his signature, and pot them up for marggba
with New York broken. The market went
his way, and he rapidly got rich. Hie tfa
ployer didn't miss the bonds because nty
neat counterfeits had been put in their praa.
If Bcovil had not unfortunately t*$n a
"bear" during the past few weeks, when .ha
should have been a "buH," he might bava
replaced the bonde aad retired with a Tqjflksa
