D»tnbutors THE EVENING STATESMAN SATURDAY, APRIL 29, 1905. WRIGHT MAY BE INNOCENT EVIDENCE IS COLLECTED SHOW ING THAT HE DID NOT AID MERRILL AND TRACY Was Employed on a Ranch on the Sound Ten Days Before Salem Break Occurred Harry C. Wright, arrested by Sher iff Culver of Salem, Ore., as he stepped from the state penitentiary a few weeks ago. and taken to Salem to an swer the charge of murder for aiding outlaws Tracy and Merrill to escape from the Oregon penitentiary, may be entirely innocent of the charge, ac cording to a story which comes from the sound. At the request of the sheriff's office at Salem, Sheriff Smith of King county, has detailed one of his men to gather certain evidence that the Ore gon authorities desire. The evidence collected so far points conclusively to the innocence of Wright in connec tion with the jail break. The indictment was returned against Wright for smuggling a gun into Tracy and Merrill on June 8, 1902, the day before the men made their break for freedom. Deputy Sheriff Hill who has had charge of the work of gathering evi dence in Seattle, has secured affida vits which have been forwarded to Sa lem showing that for ten days before and following the jail break Wright was working at South Park. A ran cher by the name of Van Horn em ployed him during part of the time, and time books kept by his employers during that time show that he could not have been near the penitentiary at Salem shortly before the break and at the time the gun was smuggled to Tracy. The books of the Seattle free employment office show that he was in Seattle about the time the gun was supposed to have been smuggled in to the penitentiary. The King county sheriff has secured affidavits supporting the result of its investigations and forwarded them to the authorities at Saiem, Ore. As this evidence would probably free the man upon a trial, the Seattle officials doubt if the man will ever be called upon to face a jury. DANCING GIRL HEIR TO MILLIONS Mountain Girl and a Pittsburg Soci ety Man Wedded. PITTSBURG, April 29.—Closely fol lowing upon the Carnegie-Hever mar riage sensation same the announce ment which seemed to paralyze the so cial end of Pittsburg. The bridegroom is Samuel S. Rey mer, one of two heirs to Jacob S. Rey mer, of Reymer Brothers, candy man ufacturers, worth millions, and the bride, Nellie H. Paris, a mountaineer carnival dancer and former kitchen girl of the Fayette county coke regions and daughter of a poor carpenter, Wil liam Paris. The couple were married In March and left at once for the west. They are now thought to be in Denver. The meeting, courtship and finally the marriage of Mr. Reymer and Miss Paris were romantic in the extreme. Four years ago, when 19 years of age, Nellie left the smoky mountain town of Oliver and came to Pittsburg. Her parents, in their home at Oliver, say that she was employed for a time as kitchen girl in Pittsburg. Afterwards the glamor of the stage attracted her. It was during the season of carnivals when the Elks had a big street show in Allegheny three years ago. The young woman, who is pretty and graceful, attracted Mr. Reymer's at traction. She was dancing on the stage when the young business man first saw her. The parents of young Reymer refus ed to discuss the wedding. While the aristocratic family of Reymer may refuse to receive the dancing daughter of the coke region carpenter, there seems little doubt but that the Paris family are pleased with the new son in-law. They live in a little coke vil lage some miles from Connellsville, in one of the cheap company houses. SCHOOL MA'AMS UNDER BAN South Dakota Maidens in a League to Part Teachers and Cupid. HURON, S. D., April 29.—The pretty girls of home production in this sec tion have organized to boycott, ostra cise and otherwise try to work injury to the young women who are being imported from Illinois, lowa, and Min nesota because of the dearth of school teachers. In the last three years tempting of fers of increased salaries have been hung out to attract teachers from oth er states, and they have come by the scores. But, alas! say the native girls, they teach school for only a short time —leaving the school room to do the housework and spend the accumu lated savings of the most desirable young farmers and stockmen, while the maidens of home production drift to old maidhood. The "home girls" are up in arms. They are working as a single body against their imported sisters, and the edict has gone forth that in future no imported teacher shall be given open access to society until she has proven that she means to remain a teacher. The marriageable young men are joining forces with the imported girls, and an interesting struggle is expected. Government Printing Scandal. WASHINGTON, April 29.—The com mittees on printing of the two houses of congress have begun an investiga tion of the government printing office, which, it is believed, will result in rev elations of extravagance, if nothing worse, approximating in public inter est the postoffice department scandal. The various executive departments are making an abstract of all the work they have ordered from the printing office during the last 14 years. In that period of time the expenditure on ac count of printing has risen from about $2,500,000 to more than $6,500,00 a year. The peculiar fact is that, while the printing bill has increased by more than 250 per cent, the orders of the de partments, as shown by rough esti mates have not increased nearly so much. The orders may have called for 100 per cent more work, but the cost has gone up more than double that quantity. SUSPECTS ARE FREED Rewards for Murderers of Miss Kintop Likely to Be Increased LITTLE. FALLS, Minn., April 29.— The two negro suspects held at Clo quet for the murder of Annie Kintop, have been released, officials from here finding that they were not the mur derers. Waseca sends a report that it is holding a strange negro on suspi cion, but it is not believed here that the arrest is important. Citizens of Little Falls will ask the governor to increase the state's reward to $1,000 and the county commission ers may offer another $1,000. The tall negro suspected of the mur der had a long scar on the side of his face, it has been learned, and should be easily identified. It is said he once lived in Minneapolis, and had a bad reputation there. Sealed proposals will be received up to Friday, May 26th, at 5 o'clock p. m. by School District No. 1, County of Walla Walla, Wash., for desks and school furnishings for the new Green Park school building, according to plans and specifications which may be seen at the office of the School Board, Paine block.

The beginning of the encore data** jack to some time between 1648 and) 1709, probably about 1680, when Loot* XIV. demanded the repetition of cer tain parts of an opera. Tbe opera was by Corneille, Fontenelle and Botleau. which was sung before his majesty., and the king was so pleased with cer tain parts that he asked to have them repeated. It took fully a century for the ordinary opera goers to obtain the. king's prerogative for themselves. It came about in this way: Oluck had produced an opera which had been a failure; but. having rewritten the worst parts, he produced it again. One* or two songs were accepted by the au dience with applause, and one in pars tlcular was demanded a second time. ' The most remarkable encores on rec ord are those which were Insisted upon by tbe late king of Bavaria. Before he was known to be insane, when merely; thought eccentric, he had plays formed before him as the sole auditor, the curtain rising at midnight If he liked the play he insisted on having it repeated at once. But, unlike most en core fiends, he paid liberally for them. Though our word "encore" Is adopt ed from the French, they themselves do not make use of It in this connec tion. They call "Bis, bis," and obtain a repetition.—New York Herald. | THE RUSSIAN ICON. j It la Simply a Relln-lona Plctoro Bleaaed by a Prleat. An icon la simply a religious picture, generally of little artistic merit, and the subject usually represented Is ei ther a Russian saint, some event In the life of Jesus Christ or the Virgin Mary. In the Greek church, as in other Chris tian churches, the worship of graven images is forbidden, but no objection Is made to anything reproduced on a flat surface. Therefore Icons are per mitted in the form of mosaics, paint ings, enamels or prints. They play an important part In the religious life of the Russians and are to be met with every where—in churches, public offices, private houses and shops. A picture to become an Icon must be blessed by a priest, and It Is then regarded not on ly as an ornament, but as an accessory in the worship of the Greek church. Icons are also worn on tbe person, when they take the form of a plaque or a book with two leaves. Almost ev ery soldier wears one on his bosom, and when he prays be takes out his icon and, opening It, kneels down be fore It as If It were a portable altar. Every regiment has Its own Icon, which It carries as It would carry Its banner when the regiment goes Into battle. | THE PRICE OF A LIFE. How It Was Fixed Under the Old' Anglo-Saxon Laws. According to Anglo-Saxon laws, ev ery man's life, Including that of the king, was valued at a fixed price, and any one who took it could commute the offense by a money payment upon a fixed scale. Tbe life of a peasant waa reckoned to be worth 200 shillings, that of a man of noble birth 1,200 shillings, and tbe killing of a klug Involved the regicide In a payment of 7,200 shil lings, -y It has been pointed out that the heir to tbe throne could thus get rid of the existing occupant by murdering him, and thereafter handing over the fine* according to the scale, to the excheq uer, when bis offense would be purged) and his money would come back tot himself, for In those days tbe sover-t eign received all fines as personal per-< qulsltes. There Is very little doubt that these rough means were practical* ly applied in the case of some rulers oji England In the preconquest period.—( London Telegraph. Hacks —Shaughnessy & Clancy.
