What Bryan said to Johnion
and what Johnson said to Bryan
in the heart tohtart talk they
had on the train speeding to
Washington remains a deep, dark
-mystery. Each has come out in
an interview, either directly or
inferentially pledging support if
the other should be nominated at
Denver. Johnson aaid: "I will
support Mr. Bryan or any other
democrat who ia nominated, for
I want to see the democracy carry
the country." Bryan said: "I
think my record will answer that
question." It will be recalled
that Bryan supported Parker in
1904-to a certain extent
In an opinion given Saturday
Attorney General Crawford holds
that the railroad commission has
no authority to compel railroad
companies to fence their trackt
in this state. Numerous com
plaints have come to the Com
missioners asking that railroad
be compelled to fence their rights
of way, and the commission re
ferred the matter to the Attor
ney General, who states he has
been unable to find any authority
under which the commission can
enforce such an order.

When Leslie M. Shaw was sec
retary of the treasury, he held
that frog legs were poultry. The
question "Is an egg livestock?"
is now raised by G. F. SUtter of
Sioux City, who has imported
from England two settings of
Black Orpington eggs. They were
valued at $100 in the invoice and
duties of $25 were assessed. Mr.
Statter paid under protest and
appealed to the department
on tbe ground that eggs are livestock.
Adjutant General Finzerof the
Oregon National Guard, has giv

but its equipment will be identi

Two aged Crow Indians. Old
Coyote and Bull Snake, are made
pensioners of the government by
a bill passed by the Senate plac

$60 a month. Both these Indians
went to the relief of Generals
Custer and Crook in their fight
with the Sioux Indiana in 1876
and both were badly wounded.
The political campaign recent
ly decided upon by the American
Federation of Labor will be di

of speakers will be put in the
field and it is also contemplated
to pursue a vigorous and wide
spread fight through the medium
of campaign literature.

of Indiana are authority for the
statement that Representative
Charles B. Landis of that state

Now, 1 defy any young man of or
dinary spirit speudlug hta time lu mirli
a place watching a game without long
ing to be In It. I reflated for aoiue
time, for the men were a bad looking
lot, then pulled out some coin nnd call
ed for tbe dice box In my turn I
played far Into tbe night and when I
got up from tbe table bad parted with
every cent of mouey I bad for my ex
penses, some $300. I wa not quite o
much of a fool as this confession Indi
cates, for t bad noticed that my op"
ponents knew exactly how to roll the
dice to that the figures they wlahed
should come up. IleaMes, I una not
specially timid. When cleaned out I
reached for the dice and put them lu
my pocket Tbe men who bad won
my money looked threatening, luit
Mid nothing. To object would have
been to confess that they were load
ed. 1 had no Idee, of recovering my
money by an exposure. I wlahed to
satisfy myself aa to whether 1 had
Taking my candle, I went upstairs
and to bed. Undressing, I threw my
trousers on tbe back of a chair, not
thinking, since .1 bad loat all my mou
ey, to take any precautions for -their
safety, but 1 didn't care to lose tbe dice
till after I had a chance to break tbem,
to I took tbem from tbe pocket and re
placed tbem with my own set; then I
went to bed and to sleep.
I waa awakened during the ulght by
some one tampering with my door. I
lay still and presently beard the door
open and a atealtby step In my room.
A. figure passed tbe window, and I
could bear It searching among my
clothes; then It went out 1 got up,
felt la my trousers' pocket for my dice,
and they were gone.
Tbe next morning I was not especial
ly surprised to aee some of tbe men
who bad my money still about tbe
place. Uad they not, aa they supposed,
secured tbe dice they would have got
out of the way. After breakfast I told
tbe landlord that I suspected that I
had been swindled with loaded dice.
Me professed to be very Indignant and
wore that If ancb were tbe case be
would make tbe men who bad won my
money disgorge. I torn mm to can
tbem la and I would prove my charge.
They-came, and 1 could see by tbeUr
assumed Indignation that they were
confident that they bad tbelr dice and
I could prove nothing.
After they bad expended sufficient
verbal ammunition tbey called upon
ne to give a reason for assuming that
tbe dire they bad played with were
loaded. I asked the landlord for a
hammer, and 'when be bod produced It
I put my band lu my pocket and pulled
out the dice I bad kept under my pil
"Hold on." said one of tbem. "Those
are not tbe dice."
"Why sor I asked.
"Because" He stopped abort lie
couldn't own that I bad been robbed
of set of dice.
"Crack 'em,H I said to tbe landlord.
tteluctantly be put one of tbem down
oa tbe hearthstone and cracked It.
There was the lead plain enough.
Tbe men and tbe landlord stared at
one another, surprised. Meanwhile I
bad backed to a safe position and had
my band on my pistol. Hearing tbe
itroke of a steamboat bell-a signal to
bank flret-I knew that a boat was
about to land.
"Ton men produce, my money," I
said, "or I'll see what I can do when
that boat lands."
Tbe landlord .was In no mood for tbe
reputation sucsTa charge would give
bis place, and after a few words wltb
tbe others be returned me my losings.
I don't think I should have bad tbo
courage to demand my money bad I
not beard that stroke of a steamboat
bell. It came In tbe nick of time. I
stuffed tbe funds Into my pocket, ran
pstalrs for my belongings and down
again, keeping a sharp lookout and my
haM on my pistol. Tnen before going
to tbe landing I said: "You've done
