The powers, like Corbett and Fitz slmmons, are still doing most of their flghdng with pen and ink. Will the treasurer of the United States please pay Mr. Teller and Mr. Chandler their salaries in silver dol lars? Now will the young men hurry up and get married? A learned statisti cian has demonstrated that single men oftenest go crazy. Is the cow to follow the horse Into oblivion? A Baltimore man is mak ing milk and cheese out of gTass with the aid of electricity. ■» Bushnell and McKisson have tempo rarily sheathed their knives, but they will be whipped out at the beginning of the next campaign. Who knows but we may have a mild run of Bonaparteism in this country? Charles J. Bonaparte Is a candidate for senator from Maryland. Will Mrs. Griffith please arise and state her position again? Mr. Hanna appears to have won her off with a card he had up his sleeve. The question, never to be answered r.ow, is just "how much" did the award of that seed contract to that Toledo firm "mean" to Mark Hanna? The Western league batting averages show that occasionally a member of the St. Paul team took a slash at the air where there was no ball. An Eastern exchange describes old time mothers as by far the best. Those we get nowadays are all we have left and, of course, the best there are around. The shirt waist will be a favorite this summer, says a fashion critic. At that, this summer will not in this re epect have any advantage over last summer. A Logansport, Ind., man claims to have bottled the sun with the result of "perpetual" light. A Chicago paper describes him as a great discoverer or a great fraud. Everybody has a guess. Charles L. Kurtz met political death shouting "The situation is all right, and Mr. Hanna will not be elected sen ator." Mr. Kurtz has earned the right to shake hands with Senator Jones, of Arkansas. m — It Is a mighty good thing- for Ohio that the trouble Is ended at Columbus. If the racket had kept up much longer, the farmers of the Buckeye state would have neglected to prepare to put in their vegetable crop. The Duchess of Marlborough, Con suelo Vanderbilt, has been snubbed by some people in British society. She has become so active at "speaking pieces" at social gatherings that she Is known as the "demon reciter." What a heartless corporation the Hudson Bay company is, to be sure. It knew of the gold in the Alaskan coun try, but refused to tell of It because the prospectors would drive away tho fur-bearing animals. -Or- The cartoon in last night's Dispatch, which apparently represents a leper and a negro joining hands, in the name of Hawaii, to pull down the American flag, was more effective than its de signer intended.

Bryan, of Nebraska, shorn of the tran sitory glory of an unsuccessful presi dential canvass, has not been deposed from the position he had won before as an orator, as a citizen and as the pre-eminent exponent of one policy ad vocated as the basis of American statesmanship, was shown by the im mense throng, 10,000 or more, that packed the vast exposition auditorium In Minneapolis last night, not to the doors, but into the streets. The meet- Ing was to have begun between 6:30 and 7 o'clock. The doors were to have been thrown open at 6; they were bro ken open before that by a restless mass that hurled Itself against the too frail barriers and overturned the plans of the projectors of the meeting, and defied the efforts of the police. From then until 8 o'clock the crowds poured into the big barn-like struc ture, and the later comers, finding the real auditorium jammed, forced their way home again disappointed. Mr. Bryan's greeting Monday morn ing was unfortunately cool; his recep tion last night rushed to the other ex treme. Absent, perhaps, was the intense ex citement of a stirring, hard-fought po litical canvass, but there were present two factors that could not fall to in spire the least responsive man — num bers and apparent sympathy. The audience was friendly. Not neces sarily sharing the political convictions of the masterly satirist, brilliant plead er and persistent fighter before it, !t was as Intolerant of any real or fan cied discourtesy to the city's gaiest as It was evidently determined to atone for the fiasco of Monday morning. Men of all parties listened with rapt attention, and women, not allied with any party, unless by marriage, shared in the enthusiasm. Indeed, for the fair sex was reserved the final climax of the orator's speech and the prettiest inci dent of the evening, the presentation to the idol of the hour of a magnificent BOUQUET OF EASTER LILIES in behalf of the Women's Bimetallic league, the presentation being made by Prof. T. J. Caton. Mr. Bryan closed with a reference to the interest the women were taking in the cause of bimetallism, which, he said, was due to their realization of the fact that however they might toil and save for the benefit of their sons and daughters, the latter would be held at the mercy of avarice in con centrated capital and might a>t any moment be ca*»t down from opulence to j poverty. This, he said, the women wanted to save their children from by a system which would insure prosper ity to all, and this sentiment was ap plauded to the echo by the audience, now warmed to the highest pitch of enthusiasm in spite of the untoward climatic conditions fostered by the present high price of coal, perhaps, for the building was really cold. After Mr. Donahue had read a tele gram from John Lind, explaining that an affliction in his family prevented his presence. Mr. Caton presented the bouquet, and the meeting broke up. Mr. Bryan was late, but when his advance guard came, in the person of Judge John W. Willis, of St. Paul, Chairman W. H. Donahue briefly in troduced the new arrival with an in terested query as to where, in Minne apolis, at least, were the people who were not in favor of silver. Judge Willis at once threw himself into the breach with a new avowal of his own, and as he believed the peo ple's allegiance to the cause of silver. No crown of gold, marked "for deficit only" could deceive the people into the belief that the much vaunted pros perity of the day was due to the gold plank of the Republican platform. It was in spite of it. Future generations of American citizens would honor the names of the heroes of the battle of 1896, and enshrine the names of Teller, Towne, and Jones. A voice from the audience reminded the judge that John Lind deserved a better place than to be bunched under the general head of "others," and, after retracing his steps to pay a compliment to the New Ulm man, he closed with a tribute, brief, but elequent, to the greatest of them all, the man who, March 4, 1901, would take his place as the chief magistrate of the nation, William Jennings Bryan, of Nebraska. The applause that greeted this pei oration was only equaled a few min utes later when Prof. T. J. Caton, in- WEDNESDAY MORNING, JANUARY 12, 1898. troduced as the next speaker, to give recognition to the labor and assurance of the continuing fealty of the Peo ple's party, referred to the present president as "that automaton who now occupies the White house. NOW COMES BRYAN. Prof. Caton was Interrupted by the entrance of Mr. Bryan, who, accom panied by A. T. Ankeny, Lars M. Rand and Michael Breslauer, had fought his way through the crowd with great dif ficulty. The ovation given Mr. Bryan on his entrance was repeated when Mr. Dona hue, with a popular brevity, Introduced the Nebraskan as the matchless leader of Democracy, after Mr. Caton cut his talk short. Expressing gratification that there was so much Interest in the lost cause of 1896, as was demonstrated by the de meanor, as well as by the size, of the audience, not to mention the thousands turned away outside, Mr. Bryan re ferred facetiously to the apparent fact Majority of AH riembers=Elect Give Him Their Votes.

It will have at least one more day of charges and counter charges. The fight has never been more bitter than tonight, and this In spite of the fact that Senator Hanna won an apparent final victory today when the two houses of the legislature voted separately for both the long and short terms, a majority of all the votes cast being for the regular party nomi nee in both cases. Senator Hanna re ceived seventy-three votes, a majority of one over all In a total membership of 144. The senate vote showed 19 for McKisson and 17 for Hanna. The house vote stood: Hanna, 66; McKis son, 49; Wiley, 1; Warner, 1; Lentz, 1; and 1 absent. The vote in detail was as follows: The following was the ballot In the senate for the short term: McKis&on — Burke (Rep.), Broreln (Dem.), Cohen (Detn.). Cromley (Dem.), Decker (Dem.), Doty (Dem.), Flnck (Dem.), Harper that a number of homes had not yet been visited by the advance agent of prosperity. The fight was not dead. It would not be abandoned as long as there was in the United States a sin gle man who dared look 3,000 miles over the sea for Inspiration as to the course to be pursued In the management of the affairs of this nation. The object of the meeting, or at least his presence, was not primarily to make votes. No campaign was on. Conver sions, Indeed, were rarely made at pub lic meetings. He merely wanted to give the people something to think about, and talk over with their neigh bors. Theories, the operation or abandon- MASSACRE BY SEMINOLES. KANSAS CITY. Mo., Jan. 11.—Gen eral aiarm exists throughout ths South west tonight, owing to the persistent rumors of a Semlnole Indian outbreak, which have poured in from various parts of the country since nightfall. The stories vary from threatening war dances to massacres in which a score of settlers are said to have lost their liVes, and it is not probable that the real state of affairs will be known be fore tomorrow. Since the burning of the two Indian murderers near Maud, Oklahoma, last Friday, the Seminoles have been greatly excited, and trouble has been feared for several days. SHAWNEE, O. T., Jan. 11.— The train from the East tonight brought to this city a car containing every woman and child from EarlboFO. The passengers say a pitched battle between the In dians and settlers took place this aft emcon near Maud Postbffice, resulting in the wiping out of jjeveral families. A later dispatch from Shawnee says: "A message calling for men and arms has just been received? from Earlboro, a town of about 100 inhabitants, saying that nearly 300 Indians have sworn vengeance on the town and are mov ing toward the place, declaring that they will burn the place. Grave fears are entertained for homesteaders on the border. A special train was made up from here of 150 men armed to the teeth, and left for thfe ecene. The whole country is aroused." SOUTH M'ALESTER, I. T., Jan. 11.— A telegram, received here this evening by the train dispatcher of the Choctaw, Oklahoma & Gulf railroad, states that a band of 150 Seminolef Indians are on the warpath and are leaving behind a trail of blood. The telegram was sent by the railroad station agent at Earl boro. The brief Information conveyed was that the Seminoles were avenging the work of the mob of white men who burned two Semlnole Indians at the stake on Friday last, and that the in- BUCKEYE MONEY TALKS.

The station agent gave the additional information that the band started from a point six miles south of Earlboro, with the avowed inten tion of setting fire to Tecumseh and killing all whom they met, that the Indians were reported to have changed their course and were, at the time of the sending of the message, headed toward Earlboro. The receipt of this startling Informa tion has created intense excitement in South McAlester. If the Earlboro agent cannot be reached by wire, a train will be dispatched from here at midnight, bound for the scene of the reported massacre, under orders from Judge Springer, and having on board all the available deputy marshals under command of Capt. Brady, while the secretary of war will be wired to order troops from Fort Reno. The general officers of the Choctaw. Okla homa & Gulf road have ordered out a special train from Shawnee, bearing volunteers armed with Winchesters to Intercept the Indians at Earlboro and prevent further bloodshed. OKLAHOMA CITY, O. T., Jan. 11.— There is an uprising In the Seminole nation and 100 armed Indians have killed twenty-five citizens of Potta wattamie county, this territory. The Indians are seeking to avenge the re cent burning of Lincoln McGeisey and Palmer Simpson, two Indians of the Seminole tribe, who were accused of murdering Mrs. Leard, of Maud post office. GUTHRIE, O. T., Jan. 11.— Deputy marshals have arrived here from Maud and report a reign of terror in that section, following the recent lynching of two Semlnole Indians, which has provoked the Seminoles to threaten vengeance. A dozen families are re ported to have left their farms in the vicinity of Maud. One deputy brings a report that two white men were cap tured by Seminole bucks yesterday and put to the thumb torture. United States Marshal Thompson received in structions today to send a force ot deputies to the line marking the border of Oklahoma and Indian Territory to co-operate with the Indian Territory officials in quelling the outbreak. 1, Hazlett (Dem.): Warner, 1, Hess (Dem.).

The only absentee was Representa tive Cramer, the Democratic Populist member from Paulding county, who is seriously sick. His physician stated tonight that he could not possibly be In his seat tomorrow. After the vote was recorded today In each branch of the legislature sep arately, a majority of a quorum of | those present is all that Is necessary in the joint balloting- tomorrow, so that the serious illness of Representative Cramer might become an important I factor. The scattering vote today for Lentz, Wiley and Warner was cast by Repre 6entatives Wiley, Hazlett and Hess, all ; Democrats. If Cramer had been pres ent and all other Democrats in line, McKlsson's vote In the house would I have been fifty-three or still three short of a majority in that branch of the I legislature. With Hanna having a ma j jority of three in the house, McKisson I having a majority of two in the senate, the chair would announce tomorrow that there was no election today, and that a joint ballot will be In order.

Fortunes Beyond the Wildest Dreams of Avarice Await Their Practical and Intelli gent Development. THE KLONDIKE PALES TO INSIGNIFICANCE. Enough Territory in Which No White Han Has Ever Set Foot to Keep Prospectors Busy for Twenty Years. Special to the Globe. FORT WRANGEL, Jan. 5, via Port Townsend, Wash., Jan. 11.— "We have discovered deposits of gold which will make the Klondike find of 1896 seem insignificant in the next few years." Thus spoke D. Soils Cohen, who has Just returned here with Councilman Cole from Gravina island, Southeastern Alaska. "We have made the discov eries on Gravina, Revillagigedo and Annette islands. It seems extravagant, I know, to speak of mountains of ore," said Mr. Cohen, "hut that Is exactly what characterizes the three Islands I have mentioned, and also Mary's, Prince of Wales and others. Hundreds of thousands of tons of ore, practically ready for the smelter, may be shipped without putting a pick beneath the ground. "Ledges extending from the beach to the base of the mountain chains fol lowing the undulations of the ground, lost here and reappearing there tn widths varying from 10 to 50 feet, and at times rising in fantastic shapes like the ruins of ancient castles, all carry precious metals. Other ledges, sharp edged, extend in layers Into the salt water, and are covered with curious weeds and shells which the high tides have left upon them. Strip tlusy ledges anywhere, put in a shot be tween them and, as the rock is torn and shattered by the blast, the metal it conceals Is laid open. In some In stances, from our shots, fine gvkld was plainly visible in tne white quartz within the weed covered slate. All his is above the surface; what lies be neath the future will determine. On Gravina much of this ore is copper. "On Revillagigedo, especially about George's inlet and H»-k-n bay, very rich free milling gold ledges have late ly been located. The ledges are as big as the country "We lived, Mr. Cole and myself, in a sloop, for about a week sailing from point to point, and anchoring at night In one or another of the numerous harbors safely sheltered from the winds which roared about us, and the storm struck seas which raged with out. We not only visited claims in the course of development, but with our own hands procured specimens show ing fully the character of the mineral belt.

Largey, the president of the State Sav ings bank, and a wealthy mine owner, was shot and killed about noon today by Thomas Riley, a man who was in jured in the big explosion of Jan. 15, 1895, and who has since been making threats against Messrs. Connell, Ken yon, Clark. Largey and others, who were supposed to own an interest in the buildings In which the giant pow der was stored. Riley entered the State Savings bank about 12:45 o'clock today, and walked up to the cashier's window, where Mr. Largey was at a desk near the window. When Rlley appeared, he walked over to the window and hand ed Mr. Largey a paper, at the same time speaking to him, in a low tone of voice. Mr. Largey made a gesture, as if of impatience, at the same time turning partly around. Rlley was heard to mutter something and then presenting a revolver to Mr. Largey's hfad he fired. Largey's left arm was resting on the counter by the cashier's v, indow, and when he saw the gun he crouched down. The bullet struck Mr. Largey's arm below the shoulder. Rlley again presented the revolver. Mr. Lar gey lifted his head from behind the counter to see if Riley was still there. As Mr. Largey's head appeared above the counter, Riley again fired, the bul let taking effect in the forehead, just a little to the right of the center. Mr. Largey fell to the floor and almost Im mediately expired, without uttering a word. By this time the dazed clerks In avarice await their practical and Intel-. ligcnt development. Comparatively easy of access, upon tide water, with Bpa cious waterfalls sufficient to run 100 stamps at lowest stage, with yellow oedar In abundance, the natural facili ties fo£ working are unequaled as far as my knowledge of mines extends. "For nearly two years I have been giving special study and attention to Gravina and Revillagigedo Islands, in Southeastern Alaska. The former lies along Nicholas passage and Tongas narrows, extending from about four miles opposite Fort Chester, or New Mttlakahtla, on Annette Island, to ahout sixteen miles above Ketchikan which Is a thriving trading and fishing post on Revillagigedo. Gravina is Hi* twin island to Annette which wus not aside by the United States som.- t, t? years ago as a reservation for 'Dun nan's British Columbia Indians.' Since this time Duncan has practically been the ruler of a principality. He has profited largely by trading, fishing, canning, etc., and British Columbian mining engineers are said to be now prospecting the Island nnder hin super vision, "However that may be, the island is fabulously rich In mineral, and while the 'mountain of gold' is not to be con sidered as solid and 18 carat therq is distributed in the quartz of this broad area far more wealth than the Klondike will have produced when it shall be as the abandoned placers <>f the Fraser. Gravina Island is, of coins.., open to prospectors, and very rich claims have been located, but there is enough territory on the Islands upon which a white man's foot has never yet been placed to keep 100 prospectors busy for many years. "The island lies, as I said, along Nicholas passage and Tongas narrows, with Clarence straits upon the u>-.st. it is about thirty miles long and sixteen miles wide. Upon the western ooast, beginning at the extreme southerly end, the Dall ridge rises to an average height of 2,050 feet, and extends about two-thirds of the entire length of the island. Upon the east side, beginning at Boswlck inlet, the California range starts at 1,800 feet and has an average height of 2,200 feet, extending nearly to the extreme northern end at Valenar point, the Junction of Tongas narrows, Clarence straits and Behue canal. The inland is of an entirely rocky forma tion, all the rocks being richly min eralized. It ha? no soil save th" In avy growth of moss which is characteristic of Alaska, yet it is heavily timbered with yellow cedar and oak, the roots spreading around and inserting them selves between the crevices of the rock, being nurtured and covered by this verdant moss. We noted, in places, large treeH ffll>'d )>y the storms which had stripped the mops for many f<><t in circumference about them exposing the mineralized rock and Ice, and in many Instances holding in their em brace the huge boulders around which they had entwined themselves." Patrick Largey Shot Down by a Man Whose Grievance Dates Back to the Great Explosion. the bank had recovered from their as tonishment. J. O. Hodgens, th change clerk, was sitting at a desk near the rear portion of the bank and sprang to his feet at the first shot, but being unarmed was unable to render any assistance. Frank W. Holmes wa« at one of the front windows, cashing a draft for Mrs. Glenn. He reached Into a drawer to secure a gun k-;>t there and was in the act of taking it out. when Rlley walked past hi dow and, seeing Holmes BO *i yaged, fired a shot at him, but luckily his mark. Riley then 'proceeded to the front door with his smoking revolver xiill In his hand. Several people on r; side had heard the shooting am! on the sidewalk, but made ii" to disarm the assassin. Martin kur, the county Jailer, and Deput> nclda, were in the vicinity and rushed to the doorway Just as Riiey hail tiansferred the gun to his poek«* immediately placed him under arrest. He offered no resistance. To tht- offi cers, on the way to the jail, h he was not sorry for his act; that h^» had a good grievance against Largty, and should have received i from him. He spoke In an a; rational and collected manner. Imme diately aftf r the shooting Drs. Freund, Bryant and MrCr.rnmon were summon ed. They looked at the body l>ut life had been extinct for several minutes. A messenger was at once sent to in ■ form Mrs. Largey and her dauf of the tragedy. They arrived a few moments later In the company of tome fiiends of the deceased. Their was sad to witness, and the} shortly after taken to their huine.
