(This is a continuation of the third installment of the terrors of Russian tortures told by a suf ferer.) In the beginning of the same month a railway employe, Kreger, with his wife and daughter, Amalia. was arrested at the station of Ringsmundshof. The parents were both nearing "0. The daughter was 23. Amalia Kreger was suffering with a serious disease, and had just returned from St Petersburg, where she had been lying for some time In a hospital. Some socialist leaflets had been found during a search in her father's house, and the whole fam ily was arrested In consequence and brought to Lindvarden. They were handed over to Prinz and lonin. The old father was in feeble health and soon became uncon scious under the torture, and the dragoons, believing him to be dead, dragged him out of the room and threw him into a sort of granary, which did duty as a morgue. The daughter was forced to be present in the room during the tor ture of her parents, and the mother subsequently beheld the agony of her daughter. The torture took place in the story above us, so that we could hear the groans and cries of the victims, loiter on the old man revived, and was thrown one day into our cell. Two days later all three were taken to the torture chamber again. One day—l don't remember ex actly which —I was summoned to the dreaded room. There I found lonin, Prinz, several other officers and dragoons and the three unfor tunate Kregers. We four W< re made to stand up together, which ' we were hardly able to do because of our great weakness. lonin ! COREY'S SON A HUSKY BRUISER Among the brawny lads who are trying, for positions on the Yale eleven Is Allan, better known as "Pop" Con y, son of William E. Corey, steel magnate who wedded Mabelle Oilman. Young Corey is a stocky, well built youth, and as quarterback on the "scrub" team has done good work against the regulars.

Kaminsky, Proprlet 207 Riverkide Aye., Next to Hotel Pedicord. showed me various photographs which had been found in Kregers house. "Do you know these persons?" he asked me. I replied in the negative. "Do you know this man?" he asked Amalia Kreger. The girl replied: "No, I don't know him." And, Indeed, we were perfect strangers. But hardly had she ut tered the words than the dragoons fell upon her and began to flog her brutally. lonin trampled upon her body with his heavy boots, and the unhappy girl filled the air with des perate shrieks of pain. After a while she was made to stand up again and lonin asked once more: "Do you know this man?" She again answered in the nega tive, and the flogging began again. This time lonin, nagaika in hand, taking part in it. All this was done in the presence of her old parents, who sobbed helplessly at the sight. These proceedings lasted for three or four hours, when we were all four thrown back into our cells. After two weeks of repeated tor ture Amalia Kreger was taken away to Riga, to the central prison. The girl was so exhausted and mu tilated that she could not stand, and the dragoons were obliged to carry her out in their arms, she being driven in a cart through the fields to the station. The parents were released at the same time. They parted from their daughter with bitter tears. I wit nessed the scene from the window of my cell. She is still lying in the Riga prison hospital, although two years have passed since then, "a most pitiable sight of a mutiHated woman." as the prison doctor told me later, when I was also placed in the same hospital. She is still "POP' COREY. unable not only to walk, but even to sit up without help. I'ntil now there has been neither trial nor in vestigation of her case. Could, she be brought before any court in her present condition? Soon after the Kreger family de parted the dragoons brought a lit tle girl of about 8 years of age, Anna Puren, into the court yard. The child, suspecting no harm, walked cheerfully along" between her guard. Her father was a farm laborer who had taken part in the revolutionary movement of 1905, and since then had been hiding in the forest. The family was entirely without means, and therefore the Child, her mother, and her grand parents had • been living in the Ringsmundshof almshouse. The little girl was accused of having taken food to her father in EIGHT CLUBS FOR LEAGUE NEXT YEAR The Northwestern league next season may comprise eight teams. Portland, Helena and Everett all want to get in. Jack Flannery, chief of police of Helena, who used to manage the Helena team in the good old days, has applied for admission of his town again and is backed by E. A. Qqpdkind, a wealthy merchant.

Right Tackle Roberts of Gon- Eftga gained 100 yards in a desper ate sprint toward the close of the last half. EASY GAME FOR ATTELL.

A blow on the jaw finished the fight. VARNEYS TAKE TWO. Tbe Varneys took two out of three games from the Spokane Trunk Co. team on the City bowl ing alleys last night. The score was 2628 to 2573.

Soon afterward the mother and grandparents were brought into l.lndvarden and likewise flogged with nagaikas. the child was set free, but the mother (also called Ann Puren) and the old peo ple were transferred to Ogren. During my presence in the Lind varden punitive detachment the majority of those tortured were be tween the ages of 8 and 17 or be tween 50 and 80. Those between the ages of 20 and 150 comprised the smallest number of victims. (To be continued.) HOW THEY CUT OFF JOE'S ARM BY HERBERT QUICK BY HERBERT QUICK. CHICAGO, Ills., Oct. 20.—Little Joe Hulanda, 14 years oW, lives in this city. He is one of the hun dreds of thousands of boys who eke out a distorted and stunted life, morally and physically, in the pul sating tumor of American life, the great city. Morally, he grew so crooked under the perssure of this nightmare life that he became a "ward" of the juvenile court. Phys ically his system got poisoned by virus and weakened by unnatural conditions so that gangrene at tacked an injured arm. and the doc tors, called in after health was de parted, said that the arm must be cut off. or he would die. And here the state which seems unable to prevent or cure the con ditions which bring on gangrene in body and soul, came in and vindi cated its power and dignity. Little Joe's father, knowing tha horrible fate that is likely to befall the maimed in this devil take the hindmost civilization of ours, pro tested against the cutting off of his boy's arm. He preferred the change that Joe might die to the certainty that in a world where a living comes hardly to two hands the bo,y with but one must sink to beggery, to that hell underneath society, into which the disabled sink —the hell of the man who connot be a good workman, or even a "good" hobo or a "good" yeggman. And little Joe, agreeing with his father, fought against tbe-loss of that precious arm with all his child ish strength. He was young, but he knew the inferno into which his father saw him slipping. Put Judge Tithill issued the nec essary order, aud the state tpok poor little Joe. held him on an Op erating table in spite of his strug gles, gave him chloroform and cut off the gangrened arm. To save a human life it dismembered a hu man body, against the will of the two human minds most nearly con cerned. It sounds like a story of old Sparta! The state —the people in their collective capacity, so strong as to shear from the body of tbe citizen his right arm, not for re venge, not for punishment, but for his own good! And yet, there's another side to the shield. This same strong state —the collective vs —let, this boy grow up In tho» congested condi tions that made for gangrene. Or, if it was not so in Hulanda's case, it is so in millions. So strong In applying remedies for the physical, so weak to prevent social gangrene. Well, cheer up! The strength we are developing—the we of the state —will not always be spent in cut ting off rotten arms or revening itself upon so-called crime. This glorious strength of ours, we shall is a funny gain), all these guysj (s crazey to see ova, an to see all they kin of her, but if 1 of them had a sister or a dotter that wanted to be a salomy he would beat her block off an lock her up In the at tick fer further orders." dont it malk a hole lot of dif frence anyway wether its yure sis ter wot is a bad ackter or sum uther feller's sister THE SPQKANE PPESS nurse to greater power, and some time good day we shall use It to tear ofP the bonds that make men evil and wayward and bestial. We shall make things so bright with the sun of justice that the gangrene that festers in men's souls will cease to poison the body poUtic. And that will be better than cutting men up after they become diseased. WILL HE NEVER QUIT? The Dickinson college eleven has as quarterback Prank Mt. Pleasant, the famous Indian athlete. Mt. Pleasant played at Carlisle for years unnumbered, and has now taken a fresh start for a gridiron career of several seasons more. WORLD'S BOWLING RECORD.
