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
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
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
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 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
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
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
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
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

• Orlirlnatrd In France In the Severn*
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
THE PRICE OF A LIFE.
How It Was Fixed Under the Old'
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
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.—(
