The stranger drove baok to Oyster

Grafton High Art
In Portugal
LISBON, Portugal. July 10.?The investigation
of Premier Franco has
shown the prevalence of graft on an
extensive scale. In the army, governmental
service and the diplomatic
corps alike grafting has run riot. The
disclosures have created the greatest
sensation of years, ft is doubtful, however,
If all the grafters can be pun
ished, so widespread has been tne ,
practice. ,
Premier Franco's Investigation was I
started In a campaign to reduc?
state expenditures to meet the financial
crisis Portugal faces as a result'
uf King Carlo's determination to reign I
without Parliament. In investigating1
army expenditures Franco found there |
are numerous army politicians holding
from 2 to 12 positions apiece, whose
whole service performed in any office
has been to draw the salary. They
They never appeared at their posts ex-|
cept on paydays. 1
In one Instance a highly connected!
Portuguese citizen, wiio was appoint!
ed minister to China :n 1902. it was
discovered, had never left Portugal,
although he has been drawing his salary
of {12.500 a year as minister. At
the same time he was holding six other
government positions, whose salaries
aggregated 120,000 a year.
A rich family. It was also brought
out, has been drawing the salary of
- - '-ii'-" whrt died mree years ago.
A large subsidy granted a local nunnery
has been paid regularly, although
(lie Institution was abolished five
years ago. Hundreds of similar cases
of grafting hare also been Jlscorered.
By cutting off the gratltuitles of the
grafters Franco has already reduced
the annual state expenses or 87,500.000
mllrels (about J94.000.000) by 6,500,000
mllrels (about 50,772,000.) He
Is continuing his Investigation, which
brought such fruitful results, and expects
to further reduce expenditures
by uncovering other corruption. By
the saving he has made Franco expects
to secure a small surplus.in the
next budget

Tea., Lieutenant Mack Richardson,
whose resignation from the Twentysixth
Infantry was recently accepted by
President Itooscvolt. wrote a brief note
revealing the secret of bis desertion almost
at the altar of the daughter of
Captain Kelley, o banker and one of
the most promlueut citltens of Brownsville,
Tex. Richardson was a "morphine
fiend," and be wrote that bis act
"was Inevitable since last November."
Sbunued by his former fellow officers
and despised by nil bis friends in and

how heartily we despised bliu, but ,we
will hold bis memory with kindlier

but it least be bad tbe courage
not to sacrifice Miss Kelley. We were

Richardson wooed and woa Mia
Kelley when his regiment was stationed
In Brownsville about a year
ago. After the Twcuty-slxtb was transferred
to Fort Sam Houston Richardton
frequently visited the Kellcys, and
the wedding was set for four weeks

attention throughout the state
as one ?f the most fashionable of tbe

ill parts of Terns, anil several relatives
of the Kehoy family traveled to
Brownsville from tbe east It had been
arranged that Richardson should come |
to Bmvrnsvllle the night before the
ceremony and stop lu a hotel. He had
named n fellow officer as best man.
but when It came time to no to the

Two hours later he returned to his
