A remarkable case of suicide came under the notice of the authorities at Cureghem, near Brussels, recently. A printer driven to despair by habituu! drunkenness, made his own coffin, placed it in position, and hanged him self. The corpse was found dangling over the coffin. Professional baseball umpires are so worried by the abuse they receive that most of them are subject to nervous complaints. Aware of this fact, some of the life insurance companies refuse to issue policies to them. It is only a sbert time ago when an amateur um pire in Farmersburg. N.

The whole punctuation of the late Empress Frederick's life was in herently royal. As Mr. Balfour re cently put it before the House of Com mons. she was "endowed with gifts of nature and of education which would have made her. even in another sta tion. a remarkable and accomplished woman.” In mine accidents It has often hap pened that rescuers were baffled and lives were sacrificed because the exact whereabouts of the imperiled men were unknown. The mine owners of Scranton are about to place telephones at regular intervals along the work ings in their mines, so that the instru ments may be easy of access to the men when danger demands their use. The step is greatly to be commended, and it suggests other beneficent uses of the telephone. "Government in America is practi cally shaped in the caucus. For the Christian man the primary meeting should be as sacred an appointment as the place of prayer, and If the Chris tian men of a community would inter est themselves, they could get good men nominated.” These words, spok en at the recent Christian Endeavor convention, embody a truth familiar tc all. yet one that It is well to emphasize during the month before election. The evils which exist in politics are large ly the result of the neglect of duty by the very men who most loudly complain of them. A curious story comes from the Rus sian frontier. At the little Russian town of Wystiten 400 families became homeless owing to a great fire.

The tract in dis pute is situated in northern Minnesota running from Rainy Lake to Lake Su perior. a distance of about 200 miles and taking in the entire northern tier of townships. The lands are located in the gold fields recently discovered and on that account are considered very valuable. The lands were selected by the state under th"* provisions of the Swamp act of 1860. but it is con tended by the Washington officials that the tract so chosen on the border of Canada is not swamp land, hence the proceedings.

ADMIRAL SCHLEY ON THE STAND TELLS PLAIN AND CANDID TALE Washington. Oct. 2G. —As Admiral Schley left the court room yesterday he was given an ovation. A large num ber of persons had halted outside the court room and many insisted on shak ing hands with him. The assemblage escorted him up the hill from the gun ners’ workshop, in which the court sits, to the outer gates of the navy yard. The day was a notable one In the court. By large odds the largest crowd that has yet attended any of the ses sions was present, and deep interest was manifested throughout the pro ceedings. Long before the beginning of the morning session all the seats re served for visitors in the court room were occupied, and the greater portion of the space in the rear of these seats was covered by men and women stand ing. They not only stood on the floor, but upon window sills, and tables, and even the rude eleyator machinery in that portion of the hall was covered by men. On only one occasion was there any efTort at applause, and this was suppressed before it reached any mag nitude. When the court of Inquiry adjourned Admiral Schley had not completed his testimony In chief. He took the stand about 11:30 o'clock, after former wit nesses had been recalled for the pur pose of making corrections in and ad ditions to their testimony, and contin ued his statement until the court ad journed at 3:40 p. m. This adjournment twenty minutes in advance of the usual time was due to the fact that the admiral’s throat had become somewhat sensitive as a result of his continuous talking for two days. He had made complaint to the court of the condition of his throat immediately after concluding his recital of the story of the battle of Santiago, and Admiral Dewey, who evidently himself had no CAPTAIN CLARK OF THE OREGON TESTIFIES IN SCHLEY INQUIRY Washington. Oct. 25. —The large' audience manifested signs of interest as the captain of the Oregon approach ed the witness stand. Admiral Dewey smiled as he walked around to the end of the table to administer the oath. Captain Clark at first spoke in an un dertone and was two or three times re quested to raise his voice. This he did as he progressed and was soon dis tinctly heard in the vicinity of the court. At the request of Mr. Rayner he be gan a description of the battle of July 3rd as follows: "When we discovered the Spanish ships coming out. our fleet closed in at once to attack them, each ship being ordered to keep her head directly to ward the harbor entrance. The Span iards turned to the westward, breaking through our line and crossing it. and our ships swung off to the westward in pursuit. Both sides opened Are prompt ly and fired rapidly. Dense smoke soon obscured the vessels, making it diffi cult tc distinguish them. “The Oregan ran between the lowa and the Texas and the next ships to the westward in our line, and soon af ter we sighted four Spanish ships ahead, apparently uninjured at the I time. They had gained so much ground j that I believed they had been success ful in attempting to escape, but it was soon evident we were gaining at least on one of them, which afterwards proved to be the Maria Teresa, the flagship, and 1 thought we should bring her to close action, but might be ex posed to the concentrated fire of all the ships. "Just then the smoke lifted or broke away to the left and I discovered the Brooklyn. Sue was well forward of our port beam and broadside to the ene my's fleet. Her course w'as, perhaps, a little divergent from ours, because the Oregon was attempting to draw up upon the Teresa. But the Brooklyn and Oregon maintained this relative position, bow and quarter, approxi mately to the end of the oatt.e. the Brooklyn steaming straight ahead as nearly as I could judge and engaging any and all of the Spanish ships, the Oregon endeavoring to come to close action with the sternmost one. and when she was driven out of action and pointed to the beach, then pushed on TRIAL OF DENVER’S JESSE JAMES GANG Denver, Oct. 2(s.—Tlie trial of Casey Gaul, Roy. Charles and George Brune. all boys of tender years, accused of having murdered young Iloiner Rea hard during August last. Is before a Jury In the criminal court. The case presents some of the most remarkable circumstances in the history of crimin al jurisprudence, and If the allegations of the prosecution are fulfilled, sensa tional developments outrivaling those that followed the killing of young Rea hard may be looked for. The contention of the prosecution is that the boys now facing the Jury are members of an organization of young sters banded together for the purpose of emplatlng in a small way the deeds of dime novel heroes. The proceedings Thursday were con fined to the work of impaneling a jury and only one witness, tin* father of the victim of tin* alleged murder, was heard. Ills testimony was confined to facts concerning the discovery of his sou in a dying condition In a pasture near where the accused ami other boys had a rendezvous. lie also testified as to statements made by of the youngsters. A dispatch from Grand Junction says: T. \V. Conner, city detective of Denver, arrived in the city to-day at noon and Immediately went to the home of Marshal Allison, where he in terviewed Willie Jeremiah, the Denver waif who claims that he witnessed the killing of young Reahard. After a thorough examination the detective de cided tluit the lK»y’s story was worthy of more careful investigation and Mr. Conner telephoned the matter to the district attorney at Denver, who re- ticed the difficulty, responded by show ing a willingness to adjourn the court. Mr. Rayner, however, expressed a de sire to proceed, saying that he had a number of questions which he wished to ask, and Admiral ...chley assented to his counsel’s suggestion. A quarter of an hour later Admiral Dewey himself renewed the suggestion for an adjourn ment, and. all concerned agreeing to this proposition, the court adjourned until Monday at 11 o’clock. The chief event o. the day was the admiral’s relation of the events of July 3rd. when the American fleet sent Cer vera’s squadron to the bottom of the sea or to the beach. He told his story of the historical occurrence in plain words and in unaffected style, but the narrative was straightforward and to the point, indicating close familiarity with all the phases of that event. He said that tne Brooklyn had for a time sustained the Are of all four of the Spanish ships, and also the Are of the Spanish land batteries. Explaining the historical turn of his own flagship, the Brooklyn, he said that she had not ap proached to within less than 600 yards of the Texas, and he had never consid ered his vessel in the least danger. He also stated, in response to an in terrogation from Mr. Rayner. that he had never during the battle engaged in any colloquy wltn Lieutenant Hodgson, and that ne had not used the expres sion attributed to him by Hodgson. This refers io the alleged colloquy in which the admiral is charged wltn having said: "Damn the Texas.” Ad miral Schley also gave the details of the reconnaissance of May 31st, when the Spanish ship Cristobal Colon was bombarded. In this connection he de nied the statement attributed to him by Commander Potts of tne battlesuip Massachusetts. for the next one ahead, and so on un til the entire fleet was driven ashore. Mr. Rayner—D.d you get any signals from the Brooklyn on the day of bat tle?” “Yes. sir.” “Gan you recall what they were?” “Of my oyn knowledge and remem brance the signals that Impressed themselves upon me at the time were ‘Follow the flag.’ I had this repeated to the vessels following, thinking that they might not see tue Brooklyn and might see us. I remember another sig nal. ‘One of my compartments filled with water.’ I recollect it because it perplexed me a little. I was fearful that the Brooklyn might have to haul out of action and run in shore, and I concluded it was given me as a warning In rase she did haul out that I would be pre pared to look out for the chasv alone and not to pay any attention to her and she would look out for herself. “I also remember a signal because I did not understand it at first. The en emy’s ship appears to have been built in Italy,’ to which I told the signal offi cer to answer. ‘Sne will end on the coast of I also remember a sig nal. ‘Congratulations over the grand victory and thanks for your splendid assistance.' There were other signals made, t have seen the list of them, but these are the ones I recollect that made any impression upon me at the time. Of my own recollection. I can not recall any others.” "What distance was It that you were engaged in the chase of the Colon af ter the Viscaya ran ashore? How many miles do you suppose the Oregon and the Brooklyn ran in the chase of the Colon before she surrendered?” “I cannot tell you that. I have heard the chart has limited the distance to a certain number of miles, and the speed of the ships has been called in question. I presume fifty or fifty-five miles.” “Can you tell me how many ships the Brooklyn was engaged when the smoke lifted and you saw her on her westward course?” “She must have been engaged with all four.” “Did you see the turn of the Brook lyn?” "No. sir. I never saw the Brooklyn until I came out of the smoke.” I>lio<l that the boy should 1k» brought back to that city. Detective Conner left here on No. ti this evening with Jeremiah In charge. While here the boy told a number of stori»*s and many of them conflicted, but throughout all he stuck to the one that he had wit nessed the killing in Denver by what Is known ns the Jesse Janies gang of young toughs.

US.—Not for many years lias there lieeu such a gathering of the pioneers of Colorado as tlmt of yester day afternoon at the funeral of the late I>r. lloraee M. Ilule. And rarely, if ever, have the pioneers l*een more representative of the growth of the state. The men who had known l>r. llale in tin* old days at Central City when he with them laid the foundation stone for the present great commonwealth, mourned at his grave. Professors from the State Cniversity at Boulder, of whleh institution I»r. Hale was the head for four years, gathered about the bier of their former leader. Most eon spietious of all was the large number of men of Colorado’s seeotid generation, who knew Mr. Hale as their teaeher In the little old stone sehool house oil the hills of Oilpin county. I>r. Hale’s late residence. No. 211 Hogan avenue, was early thronged with his many friends, and the small lawn tilled by those who could not get I inside the house. So large was tliei crowd that fully two-thirds of those | present were obliged to stand on the lawn until the time arrived for the viewing of the body, whleh occupied fully half an hour. The Rev.

Physicians were immediately called. who gave their attention to re suscitating Striegel. After two days’ work he was declared to be out of dan ger. A letter was found in tin* room occu pied by the two. signed by both, in which they said they wanted to die to gether. as they could not live separate. A letter also written by him to a broth er-in-law stated in substance that Hess Ktrlegel was ids only wife, tin? other woman with whom he had formerly lived was not his wife. A charge of bigamy was at that time hanging over him in Kansas City. Bessie Striegel was formerly Bessie Sparr of Denver, her father being :i prominent contractor. While Striegel lived in Denver he paid his attentions to Miss Sparr in opposition to tin* wish es of her parents. The couple were se cretly married and her parents did not know of it until several weeks after it occurred. They then forgave the couple and took them in their own home to live.
