Football Man Fights Burglar W. & J. STUDENT HAS THRILLING EXPERIENCE WITH NEGRO MARAUDER. WASHINGTON, Pa., Nov. 20.?AIfror Murray, a Wash-Jelt student who makes his home with his brother, .Tames Murray here, had an exciting experience with a negro burglar at Ids brother's home yesterday morning and was badly cut by the negro, who cseaped. Young Murray was coming 1nlo the house at one o'clock and let himself in tpilelly with a night key. As lie Ftnrled upstairs lie ran lino tne route r coming down Willi a sack on his shoulder. Murray, who Is on the cob logo football fenm, at once tackled the intruder, and raised an alarm. The negro drew a razor and made numerous vicious slashes at Murray's arms end liody inflicting painful cuts, ami forcing him to release his hold. Murray's rries for help aroused the house hut lio could not hold the fellow until help arrived. With a farewell slash at Murray In which ho attempted to reach the throat, the nogro ran out or the House, leaving his sack behind. It contained practically everything of value In the way of silverware and jewelry in the house. A physician was called and made an examination of Murray's cuts, who, while he lost considerable blood, was not very seriously hurt. The police have been unable to find any trace of the robber.

A TALE OF TERRIBLE SUFFERING. NORTH SYDNEY. N. 8.. Nov. 20. ? i In a letter to Mb brother. A. Henry i Shortail, one of Ihe crew of Peary's t steamer Roosevelt, gives particulars < of a strike among the crew of the 1 sleumer at Hopedsle, one of the most t northerly ports on Labrador's coast, t when the explorer was al that place e on October 22. a Shortail states that the mate, boat- [ swain, four sailors and four firemen 1 refused to go farther on the Roosevelt a on account of her unseaworthiness. At s that time she was leaking badly anil 1 had her stern crashed In. They then r had the third rudder In use, two hav- p ing previously heen lost In the Ice s does. The crew was In a state of x starvation and were llvng In such sriunlor and fllth that their physical 1 condlton waB endangered. ? The hardships they endured In the f polar regions were indescribable. The t members of the crew demanded a sur- t Vey of the Roosevelt, but neither Com- ? mander Peary nor Captain Bartlett i would consent to the crew going home g t< St. Johns by the steamer Virginia e lake, as they wished. c Shortail says that the story of their c sufferings would fill a volume, and h thnt under no circumstances would p any of them ever again go north on v a similar expedition. t When the Roosevelt, left North Syd- o nay she had three boilers, but before I the ship reached Greenland two of |i them had burst. He also stated that a the ship was anything but fit for Arc- t. lie work, and ns he himself expressed < it. "after getting Into heavy Ice she s used lo go together llge an accordion r playing mtitdc." s Since August last the men had been r livng on two meals a day. Sliortail o criticises Peary In lire strongest terms g and says he would not undertake e such a voyage In such a ship again z for all the money In the treasury. f, s Read the Dally West Virginian, e a : MAY LOWE BARKER, *?

Moral In the Speaker.) In hla recent manifesto King Leotold has declared that if Belgium anlexes she must annex on his lines. In ither words, that a portion of the xmntry four times the slxe of Engand and Scotland shall be forever untenable to him and' bis heirs; that he revenues of the entire territory nrnuant fltntrn ijlUI I UlUklUUC OW Ulkll |/< VI7bM% H0?V| ind that all his agreements with third lartles shall hold good. Public oplnon outside Belgium could not, under ;ny circumstances, agree to such a otutlon, and Belgium could not agree n her own Interests. The Belgian i eformers are, therefore, placed In the osltlon of complete helplessness hort of a direct and bitter conflict tlth the king. The danger of the situation to-day les In the supposition that the Congo Itate can reform itself under pressure roni outside. This supposition Is due 0 the non-comprehension of the naure of the "Congo Independent Itate." What Is the Congo State? In 10 sense of the word can 1t be relarded as a State. Imagination, howver fertile, must refuse the attribute if 'State" to a vast territory in troplal Africa, of which the "citizens'" ave been deprived of everything they assess, and of freedom over their ery bodies by an absentee landlord housnnds of miles away, who exerIses his sovereignty over them by ,000 aliens drawn from every country 1 Europe, assisted by 30,000 regular nd Irregular black traps. Is it a roplcal dependency? But for a tropi ul dependency, as the term is undertood, some civilized power must be ^sponsible. No civilized power is reponslble for the Congo Slate. The eventtes drawn from the slave labor f its "citizens" urc not handled by ny civilized nation. They arc not xpended for the benefit of the "cltlen." They are not even accounted nr. The raw produce of the Congo oil on which these revenues are ralsd Is claimed as the property of the bsenlee landlord, or his absentee enant farmers, claimed even as It es ungathered In the forest, before lie "citizens" of the Congo, driven by ullent and lash, spurred 011 by the haingang and the hostage house, by ever-ending levies in wife and child, it life and litnb, has collected it. After deduction for the expenses of management," the revenues are deoted to purchasing real estate in Belittnt, on the Rivera, and elsewhere; 0 enterprises all over the world; to iress and literary proitaganda, with ndless ramifications, and astonishing lliancos. The very reason d'etre of his extraordinary anachronism, which alls itself the "Congo Independent itate," disappears If It ceases to be ilial. It Is and becomes something dlferent. It Is ail institution existing or the pillage, the systematic, calcuated, cynical pillage of a vast por' -? -e " ?

That Is why the Congo State cannot ie reformed from within by outside measure. That is why the problem Is, n tire last resort, so difficult. But, lifflcult or not, civilization must grapile with it.
