[News and Courier.]
Topeka, Kans. January 28.-To.
day Mrs. Carrie Nation invaded the
office of Governor William E. Stan
ley, in the Capitol building, and for
a solid hour arraigned the Chief Ex
ecutive of the State for his failure to
close the saloons of Kansas. Then
in turn she visited the offices of At
torney General Goddard, Count% At..
torney Nichols and ',heriff Porter S.
Cook, and demanded of each that
they close the saloons. A crowd fol
lowed her. Mrs. Nation accused
Governor Stanley of branding her as
a law-breaker and demanded to know
if he had a better method than she
of ridding the State of saloons.
"No, I don't know that I have,"
he finally replied. "But what can I
do? I am powerless. The law does
not allow me to do what I desire.
The law gives me no privilege."
"If necessary call out the militia,"
was Mrs. Nation's prompt reply.
Then the crusader delivered a
philippic that caused Governor Stan
ley's anger to rise.
"You can close every joint in
Kansas if you will, Governor Stan
ley"' she said with force, "but you
won't. You are a law-breaker and a

I am a mother. I am a grand
mother, and I represent the mothers

The room was in an uproar. Then
Mrs. Nation talked more calmly,
pleading with the Governor to aid
"You come with me and help
smash saloons," she urged. And
then she added, "If you won't help
me, I'll go around and I'll smash,

Boniufort, S. C., Jan. 28.--A gen
tleman of this town who roturned
yesterday from a hunting expedition
with soveral of his friends to Hilton
Hmad island, gave your correspond
ent the followi account of a visit
thoy miade to the old family vault on
tlhe William E. Bayllard plantation
on Hilton H-cad: The vault, said
the gentlemian, was substantially
cotistiicted of brown sione, and in
cL!nVtour was nearly squarv. The

excellont, stato of )rc-svai-vit ion, woro
c)penl. Upon ontoring tohe party
found a narrow vestibulo with mar
ble doors leading into the interior of
the tomb. Those doon wero (is
plicd and broken, and viteiring
through them into the innor portion
of the vault a coilin was obsorved
lying on the stone pavement.; its lid
had ben displaced and upon lhfP ing
it carefully aside a gruesome sight
was disclosed to view. Witiin ro
pxOd the r4mainls of a young wolian,
which appeared to have suffered but
slightly fromi tho ravagos of time.
Hor long blonde hair wits perfectly
intact, as were also her features.
Gently t aking her hand, t he narrator,
who is a physician, found to his as
tonishniont that the flesh was as pli.
ab!3 and soft. as in life, the arms
woro coveroed with a growth of hair
ai inch anl(d a half long. After a
brief inspection of these remains, of
one who in life must have been a
wouian of rare beauty, the lid wis
reverently replaced and the party
resumed their investigation of tho
antobollum tomi). Soveral old
fishioned iron coflinH were exposed
to view and these burial cass differed
greatly from the modern metalic
caskets and simply consisted of t,%o
pieces of cast iron closely resembling
a contour the human remains which
they contained. The upper piece
fitted snugly over the lower, extend
ing clear to the bottom, where a line
of rivets firmly seatled these endur
ing coflins of a former generation.
There were also several wooden
coffins, evidently made .n the plan

substantial and well preserved. Por

open, but had apparently never been
