delivered an 111 teres ting address on 'The
Bar of Early Arkansas," la. which he set
himself the, task pf rescuing from oblivion
some memories cf the early leaders of the.

which they worked. . Among . them is pre

whose picturesque and terrible character
might well furnish a hint for a modern Sir
Walter Scott,, if we were fortunate enough
to possess a successor to the great novelist:
John Taylor waa only a . sojourner . In
Arkansas from 1837 to 1844, but he was so
remarkable a man that tie' should not be

him agreed that In cupaclty for Invective,

of a demoniac power. He waa' a( tall, iank.
red-naired man, repuhtrvejy ugly, with little
green eyes that jglistened Hko those of a
snakev and with a fashion of licking out tils
tongue that waa strangely terpentine. ' He
talked '-to no- one. save on business. When
he .settled- In, Little Rock, whither he had
come from Alabama after be had beeM de

Btafes senate, an tha bar called on him, but
he received them with repelling coldness,
and returned no visits. He had a wife, but
nobody eyer saw her-r-wonderful thing con
sidering the alse of Little Rock at the time.
During the seven. years', of his sojourn he
never crossed any man's threshold, and no
rdaro crossed- his. In-riding the circuit he
always rode alone, permitting no conv
panlonshlp, and while- in attendance dn
court he -would, if the weather permitted,
live in a tent pitched in the neighboring
wood, where he might not have to look on

Letter from President Roosevelt. -
The following letter from President
Roosevelt wss read: '
White House, Oct. 17. 1908. Gentlemen: It
Is with sincere regret that 1 find myaeir
unable to accept your invitation. If I
could leave Washington for any such pur-
Bose it would be to attend your banquet,
ut congress ineeta In special session, No
vemlier V and it will then be a hard quest
tlon -for ma to get awuy. The Chamber of
Commerce of the state of New York occu
pies a unique position. It is distinguished
not only by Its long history and by the
vast importance of the business Interests
which It represents, but slso for the hiirh
type f public and business morality which
It represents. I nay you no Idle compli
ment. Tha record of the men you have
chosen as presidents; the record of the
cause with which the Chamber of Com
merce has been identified, and, above all,
the standard of business integrity which
the Chamber of Commerce has consistently
represented and which It haa determined
among those; for whom it has in any way
stood sponsor, -shows the truth of What I
Bouquets for Chamber.
It is surely necessary to add that no
body of men can render a greater service,
not onlv to the American bunihess world,
but to the American body politic than has
thus been rendered by the Chamber of
Commerce. The true Ideal of this country
Is that hand in hand with Its material de
velopment there- shall go a high and fine
sense of responsibility to the public on the
part of those whose power and ability en
able them to take the lead In this develop
ment. It Is the good fortune not only of
the state of New York but of all our peo
ple, that we can conscientiously say of the
Chamber of Commerce that, among' Its
members, we have found to an unusually
high degree this combination of great busi
ness ability with the spirit which practices
and .demands integrity in public and pri
vate afTalrs alike.
I congratulate ycat upon this banquet en
the one hundred and thirty-fifth unnivor

profoundly regret my inability to be prea

Without attempting to give the reasoi.s

argument that If foreign countries are
willing to subsidize ships to carry our

might be a sufficient excuse for our supine
excuse If there were no other consideration
Involved than merely carrying our freight
across the Atlantic ocean In times of peace.
Unfortunately, however, there are many
other and weightier considerations.

If wsr were to be declared between any

Nor wduld this be all. Tha establishment

The conflict between the great powers or

and west of us. Instead of a paltry 11)

Insist that thev would be so settled.
I am not contending for ship subsidies

Senator Allison, In responding td the
toast, "The Senate of the United States,"
explained the work of the senate. When
he, said that-he agreed with the secretary
of the treasury that all disputes should be
settled by arbitration, the banquet ball
rang with appaluse. .
Bishop Doane of AJinny, In speaking on
"Capital and Labor," took the position that
capitalists are laboring men. The bishop
wss hesrtlly applauded when he said he
believed that Dewttt Clinton was a harder
worker than any man who dug In his Canal.
Rev.. Dr. Donald Mackay, in his address,
said "the trust Is the greatest peril of the
commercial imagination today, because It
Is falling Into our national mistake of con
fusing quantity with quality and exalting

Impairs credit, i shaking public confidence,

"With great solemnity the magician sa
laamed three times, at the 'same time in
toning a hymn. Tha trick, at he Informed
us, consisted 'in vivisecting a boy, placing
him In the bag and bringing him out alive.
The thing was almost Incredulous, but It
was done to all appearances. - We sat there
and watched him aa with great dexterity
he proceeded-to chop up his victim. First
the head, then arms, then limbs; until there
remained only the trunk. These be placed
together In the bag. which he tied. He
mumbled come words in Hindu and passed
his wand over the bag. In a few moments
more the child was standing before us,
smiling, without a scratch. The necroman
cer salaamed, and before wt knew it was
"We tat there scarcely believing what
we had aeen, and were recalled to ourselves
by our friend asking us what was the mat

nessed. lie laughingly remarked that ha
happened to see the trick from the window.
He said he saw nothing but a melon cut
up. This he saw the magician place In the
tuck. The boy, he' said, was hidden In the
basket. To my mind tba mystery Was ex
plained. The sorcerer had hypnotised us,
Wt saw Just what he wanted ua to see. It
was tho only explanation of the Impossible,

One of the cleverest and most myste
rious thefts ever prepetrated in California
took place at Sanger.
Con IJarrigan, proprietor of the Sequoia
hotel at Millwood,' had forwarded to him
from the Bank of Central California In
Fresno a sack of coin amounting to ll,S0O.
The money went at far as Sanger by tha
express company, and was there called
for by John Price, manager of the stage
lint' to Millwood. Price put tbe sack of
coin in a valise and carried it to the stage
of&oe, putting it In a locker for safe keep.
In the morning the ataga driver put ths
valise aboard without looking into It and
delivered It to Harrigan at the hotel In' the
evening. When Harrigan opened It ht
found it contained not hit money, but a
brick wrapped up In a twlna sack. The
weight was almost equal to that of tht tack
The , supposition Is that somebody who
knew that the money was In the stage
office entered it with a skeleton key and
substituted the brick fur money. nan

DENVER, Nov. 17.-Retall coal dealers
who have heretofore obtained their supply
principally from the northern Colorado
fields, decided at a conference today to
bring coal from the east for their cus
tomers and an order was telegraphed for
a large shipment from Missouri river
points. This coal will be sold to con
turners In Denver at 17.26 a ton. Hereto
fore similar coal produced In Colorado has
been sold here at 14 to 4.60 a ton.
Advices from over the slate show that
the situation in many towns In the state
Is becoming serious. The town of Greeley
la almost out of coal and orders have been
sent to Illinois for five cars. The coal
will cost consumers $10 per ton. The out
put of the Eaton and Whlteash mines, a
few miles from Greeley, Is being taken by
farmers, who camp at the mine while wait
ing for their turn, being now delayed fully
a week. .
At Fort Collins the electric plant is only

of coal miners to other sections since the
strike was Inaugurated is estimated to ag
gregate today 1,000 men, one-seventh of the

Huerfano counties. The cold weather to
day caused a great deal of suffering among'
strikers' families who are living In tents
near the coal camps. All strikers st Hast
ings have been warned to vacate the com
pany's houses at once.
Another large shipment of miners left
here tonight for the different coal .fields

'At "the Dtitidrum petty'sesston's "court in
Dublin County nine respectable ydung men
were cnargen recently with "unlawfully as
sembling together to disturb the peace." A
policeman swore that they alt repeatedly
threw volleys of atones at him. On cross
examination he admitted that alT the time
of the stone throwing the young men were
only ten yards away from him and non of
the atones hit him. l-
The charge behind the charge was that
the young men attended a Gaelic class
where they met -"feloniously to learn"- the
language of their forebears.
Counsel for the defense offered to product
witnesses who would clearly establish tht
Innocence of the young men. But the prose
cution objected to any evidence for the de
fense, on the ground that, under the act of
Edward III, the defendant! were not tn
tltled to It. The court sustained the ob
jection and the young men were convicted.

novel, reported In the Dublin Freeman by
tta correspondent all the way down in
A gentleman ' named McGroary recently
arrived In Donegal from the United States,
wnert tie had made tons of money." He
put up In a first-clasi! hotel, but he didn't
like the wsys of the people. So, in order to
escape homesickness, ht taught the bar-
Keepera now to make highballs, cocktails
and smashes. Ht toon had a large circle of
new acquaintances. They wtrt all good fel
lows, willing to glvo and take, but, al
though Mr. McGroary wat amply able to
hold his own With any one of them, he could
not stick to the pa? set for him by the
crowd. Bo he tried another hotel and soon
found himself laboring under the tame dif
ficulty. Then he rented 'a villa at Ballyweel.
There ha lived In great state and enjoyed
the boating and fishing. In the evenings
nearly all tht sports In Donegal came to
sea the "fine Amerlkln gintleman" In his
villa in Ballyweel. He had entirely too
many friends and his doctor told him that
If ha did not cut down the number the
ahadea of the long-departed Irish snakes
would all appear to him. But Mc
Groary waa a nan of resources and he
knew how to dodge snakes. So he decided
to go to the poor house, and thither be
went, sure enough, in a carriage and pair,
The master of the establishment wss flab
bergasted, but Mr. McGroary's persuasive
powers soon softened him. So he allowed
tho gentleman to have a room "a II to him
"Now," said McGroary, "here at last :
win have peace. If them blokes want to
see me they will have to hunt me up in
tht poor house."
The master tent for the legal adviser of
the Board of Guardians and explulned the
case to him. The learned gentleman .was
puzcled. In valu he searched through, all
the musty statutes. He could And no law
to keep rich people out of the poor house.
Ht advlaed tht master to bring tht matter
before the board at the next regular meet
Ing. In a few daya tht board assembled in
all Its accustomed solemnity.
' "After the transaction of the usual rou
tine business" to borrow from tha local re
porters the master rose and appeared to be
in great embarrassment. "I wish to have
the instructions of the board," said he, "aa
to what charge I should make for the main
tenance of a gentleman named Mr. Mc
Groary, who Is occupying all alone by him
