Returning to Patagonia, McKeown, it Is
charged, again whipped his wife, and the
camp was thoroughly aroused. The miners
and cowboys were determined to end his
career then and there. The crowd went to
the house of McKeown, but he had disap
peared and a search was made for him
•without avail. He had received warning
of the anger of the camp and made good
his escape, "f:;"^ '%'~£i
"McKeown is a brother of Scott Mc-
Keown. young man who squandered
a fortune of $400,000 In two years. Scott
McKeown's wife is Dorothy Studebaker,
the vaudeville singer. A. S. McKeown re
ceives $1009 a month from the* portion of
the estate which he " Inherited. He was
encased in mining with his brother Scott'
at Patagonia until Scott spent his fortune
and joined his wife on' the coast. . «•
McKeown came home one night and beat
his wife. He was arrested and . fined $300
by the Justice of the Peace. McKeown
had' his money In a Tucson bank and he
was allowed to come to this city for the
amount of his "fine, but had to bring the
camp's constable with him.' While In
Tucson both McKeown and the constable
got intoxicated and made things lively.
TUCSON, Ariz., June 4.— The , miners
and cowboys of Patagonia, a mining camp
in Santa Cruz County, were bent upon
dealing roughly with a/s. McKeown last
night. They ran him out of the camp and
he probably will give it a wide berth in
the future.

WASHINGTON, June 4.-One of the
President's visitors to-night said that It
was conceded that Mrs. McKlnley was in
a very grave condition. There was hope
of the oulcome, he said, but it was a very
elerder hope.
Dr. Rixey was at the White House an
hour and a half this evening, and on leav
ing, at half-past 10, in answer to Inquiries
concerning Mrs. McKinley's condition,
E&td: -
"There has been no Important change
in Mrs. McKinley's condition since we
gave out our bulletin this morning. She

there are fluctuations in her condition— at
times ehe is better and at times worse—

seven languages and half-dozen more dia

women and children there were 2500 per

o'clock and several of the principal' native
Indian teachers assisted in the celebra

brass band and the main body of the
visiting Indians from the coast and upper
country followed, and the red men of the

There were 100 Indians mounted on po

bright garments and. glaring war paint.
Compared with these were the simple
vestments. of the priests and thehighly
colored dresses of the klootchmans "and

clergymen were in the vanguard with the
principal chiefs. . •

which has attracted this vast gathering of
rednien, will be presented on Friday.
This evening one 4 of the ' interesting
events; of the celebration— that of the pre
sentation of valuable gifts " between the
tribes— took place. * Thousands of dollars'
worth of goods of all descriptions, from
blankets to table and farm utensils j and
trinkets, were given away by, the tribes
men to one another. -The individual gifts
in some cases were valued at hundreds of
nishings. The women and children came
last. Immense dugout canoes, brilliantly
painted and comprising the finest handi
work of ¦ the ' races, were bor lie i n' the": big

.After passing several times around the
grounds the Indians were halted and
again addresses were given, in several lan
guages.; Christian chiefs, clad in untanned
skin robes, gathered in a circle immediate

cially blessed.
VANCOUVER, B. C. f June 4.-The
"tribal procession" was the great
feature of the Indian passion
play celebration at Chilliwack to
day. The number of natives In
•attendance has increased to nearly 3003.
To-day's ceremonies -were even more im
•presslve than those of the opening re-
Jception last evening to the Catholic
fathers of the Oblate order. At sunrise
the entire camp was astir. Just after 6
tents owned by individual Indians.
The scene is that of a regimental camp.
The ceremonies are conducted with per
fect harmony and not the slightest noise
disturbs them. The procession was con
ducted with all the glory t and pomp
known to the noble red man. All the
Indians took part and the six Indian
band? supplied the music The proces
sion was a mile and a half long. Bishop
Dontenwill, Father Chiroux and other
¦ Knox has rendered a very subtle-opin
ion. .There' is to be civil government' In
the Philippines/ but it is to be called a
military government. In all :.' provinces
where the United States authority is well
established there will be purely civil gov
ernments, such as are now being install
ed by the Taft - Commission. - For '- the
lslandsas a whole there will be a govern
ment administered by civilians under milr
itary' authority, and responsible, to" the
War Department. As soon as the revised
tariff for the Philippines Is completed ! it
will be'put,lnt3 "effect under' the military
authorlty/ofthtv President, as .was done
in the . case of j the. present tariff: It had
been hoped that -this tariff ; would be
ready- on- July 1,; but , it . is now believed
that It cannot be ready -before August 1:
Knox's Very Subtle Opinion.
The Cabinet session was , one of, the
most, important for many, months." For
two , hours and a quarter. - the ". . ques
tions with which the > administration- is
confronted were discussed; Attorney^ Gen
eral Knox taking the; lead. He pointed
i out. that if Congress should ! be called • to
gether it would be difficult* to ; frame any
legislation that wojild^be. certain.'»to stand.

An Extra Session Avoided.."- -
The President f and other '.members '.of
the Cabinet agreed in this view; and "con
cluded .that there would be little"?* more
risk , in .• continuing . the present, system
than in' asking Congress to legislate. This
consideration, settled the questiort.if • an.
extra session; and determined the author
ities , to go on ¦•collecting duties until a
possible adverse r. decision of the.;; court
stops it. It is assumed that all the duties
at* both ends will be ."paid under .protest.
Secretary Gage does , not think there ' is
any danger of; importers^ bringing any
considerable amount of goods-;. Into ,the
United States through the 'Philippines in
the ¦ hope of I securing a refund* of j duties.
The cost of .transportation' to and from
the Philippines. would be considerable and
the amount of money locked up in duties
that would have .to be paid would be a
serious matter. -; . V
The form of government in .the Philip
pines will be changed on, July- 1. The
new government; will be conducted by civ-'
illans, but.it viJll be "military" in name
and will report to the ; Secretary' of. War.
All powers of this government will' b« ex

"W., WASHINGTON, June 4.— There will

This' probability was ¦ wired to ; The
Call-on "Wednesday- last after, the Cabi
net meeting held on the President's train,
but at '.hat time It ; was not_ conclusively
settled in the absence of Secretary Gage
and Attorney * General Knox. But at to
day's meeting these points were- decided:
