The Cuban government was up
proached many months ago by Mr
WyckolT, a representative of the sal

gestion of removing the wreck, which!
is a serious impediment In navigation

There was some question raised sev-
eral months ago as lo the right of
the executive branch of the govern-

opinion was held In certain quarters
that the consent of congress would lie
necessary before the wreck of the
Maine was left to Cuba for such ills

At the headquarters of both the re
publican and democratic parties to-

is substantially expressed In the bet-
ting on the result, which has been
heavier in Washington than ever has
been known. The odds on the general
result are live to one in favor of
Roosevelt and Fairbanks, but many
wagers have been made at shorter
odds. The interest of the bettors cen-
ters on New York and large sums
have been wagered on the result in
that state. Odds of two to one have
been offered that Roosevelt would
carry his home state; they were eag-
erly taken by democrats. Many bets
have been recorded on the result in

Some months later Spreckles was
sitting in the lobby of the Ehhitt
house at Washington, reading his
paper, when the same friend came up
and accosted him.
"Do you know what's the matter
with Blank?" asked he.
"No," said Spreckles. "What?"
"He's got rheumatism," answered
Mr. Spreckles returned to the per-
usal of his paper.
"Has he got it in his wife's name?"
he asked casually.
While Jay Gould was superintend-

In the late summer of 1KR2. says the
New York Herald, it became neces-
sary to cross a large farm In the town
of Castleton belonging to Mrs. Ann
Dineen. so a strip of her property was
obtained. A fine patch of watermelons
on the place was too strong a tempta
(ion Tor the one hundred or more men
in the construction gang, and in a day
or two the patch was melonless.
Mrs. Dineen complained to Gonld.
but he disclaimed any responsibility
for the acts of the workmen and re
fused to recompense her for her loss.
A .day or two later Mr. Gould and
one or two of his engineers were ob-
taining relief from the effects of the
hot weather by taking a swim in the
Castleton river, when suddenly Mrs.
Dineen appeared on the bank. Gather
ing up all the clothes of the bathers,
the woman made a motion as though
to throw them into the water and
shouted: "Will yez pay me for thim
watermelons now, Mr. Gould?"
The promoters trousers contained a
timepiece worth a large sum and oth-
er valuables which immersion would
not have benefitted, so he agreed to
settle for the stolen fruit if she would
go to his office the next day. The
promise was satisfactory and Mrs.
Dineen retreated in triumph.
Bishop Olmsted of Denver, says the

way he assists the poor, but to or-

CRUSHED TO DEATH.

(From Monday's Daily.)
Shortly after 5 o'clock yegterda
afternoon an accident occurred near
the stock yards at the south end of
the Rock Island yards, which caused
the death of a man, supposed to b(
George Brown of Acme. Tex.
The man evidently attempted
board a fast southbound freight trail;
but missed his hold and fell beneath
a car. He was dragged for some dis
tance. His left leg was cut off both
above ami below the knee, his left
arm was badly mangled, and several
of his ribs were broken. He lived
for only a few minutes after the
cident, and in that time gave his
name and address as George Brown
of Acme, Tex., and papers found in
his pocket showed his statement
be correct; but he also had in his
pocket a card of the Freighthandlers
union, made out to William McSpar

HARRIMAN'S DRS AM.
Illustrative of the czar's lack of
confidence in the Russians who sur-
round him is the following incident:
Czar Nicholas had some trouble with
his back and his physicians ordered
massage treatment. But Nicholas de-
clared himself unable to find a single
man whom he dared trust for the
simple operation. He sent to Freder-
ick William IV of Prussia, asking that
a few non-commissioned officers of
Prussian guards might be allowed to
wait upon him. The application was
granted and the officers acted as
masseurs and returned to Berlin laden
with rich presents. "I know my Rus-
sians," Nicholas told them. "So long
as I can look them in the face every-
thing is well, but I will not risk let-
ting them work behind my back."
This story, told by a Tennessee con-
gressman to the Washington Times,
the relator says, taught him a lesson
he will never forget:
"When I came to Washington 1

from the straight and narrow path,!
My wife and children joined me here,
and at our rooming place I managed
to find that it was not convenient to
hold a little service of prayer before
retiring at night, a thing which was
never neglected at home. My gogd
wife prodded me several times about
this neglect, but it seemed hard to get
down to the practice and habits of
"When we returned home I began
these family services. One day my
little six-year-old child was found en-
gaged in prayer. Why are you pray-
ing. dear?' asked mother. 'Oh. mam-
ma,' came the reply, 'I tinks I mus'

New York, Nov. 4 —An engine said
to be capable of hauling a 20,000 ton
train from the Atlantic to the Pacific
without a stop at the rate of 100 miles
an hour, has been authorized to be
built by President E. H. Harriman
and will soon be turned over to the
Southern Pacific, it is believed it
will revolutionize railroading.
The engine is a tireless, smokeless,
waterless power house on wheels. It
needs no coal, drops no ashes, throws
no sparks or cinders. The builders
say it can carry enough fuel for a 3,-
000 mile run and it needs no water,
so there would be no occasion for a
stop between San Francisco and New
York, if it were possible to get a
clear track. Theoretically this has all
been figured out to mathematical cer-
tainity. It remains to be practically
The new engine uses a combination
of compressed air, fuel, oil and elec-
tric power and is an application of
the Diesel type of engine to a loco-
motive. It is now being built at the
Corliss shops at Providence, R. I. It
embraces some remarkable features.
The Diesel engine, which heretofore
has been used for stationary work-
only, is to be used to drive a dynamo
which will provide the electrical pow-
er for the locomotive. A speed of
from 100 to 120 miles an hour is ex-
pected on the trial run. There is said
to be no limit to the speed it might de-
velop. provided roadbed and other
When the models and the principle
of fhe locomotive were explained to
President Harriman he was immedi-
ately struck by the possibility of the
idea and determined to try it on the
Southern Pacific. Railroad engineers
throughout the country are watching
the outcome of the experiment with
a great deal of interest.

that Sheriff Webb and party returned
to Casper yesterday afternoon from
the northwest, where they went in pur-
suit of the bandits who attempted to
hold up the First National bank of
Cody and killed Cashier Middaugh.
Not a trace of the outlaws was dis-
covered and it is the opinion of the
officers that they have effectually es-
caped. Nothing was seen of either
the Fenton, Stough, or the Johnson
county posses. After election Sheriff
Webb may take the trail again.
Informal news from Meetetse, is
that two men of that place have been
placed under suspicion of having as-
sisted in the escape of the bandits. It
is rumored that they met the out-
laws as they approached Meetetse and
