Kharkov August 11. There hove
been frequent cases in the central
provinces of the revolutionary agi-
tators wearing the uniform of an
aide de camp of the emperor and
going through the country announcing
to the ignorant peasantry that the em-
peror hns decreed a distribution of
all the land but that the nobles
and landlords were preventing the
news from reaching the peasants and
instructing them to take what the
emperor hud given.
A still bolder fraud has just been
exposed here which illustrates the de-
ception to which the revolutioi.nry
leaders are resorting in order to pene-
trate the secrets of the government
and open up channels for their pio-
poganda into the army. Some time
ago a man appeared at the head-
quarters of the commander of the
Kharkov garrison representing him-
self as Lieutenant Pojotsky aide de
camp of General Sukhnminloff the
commander of the military district
of Kiev in whicn Kharkov lies. lie
presented what purported to be an
official document authorizing him to
transact orders regarding the disposi-
tion of the tr.Mips. The idea of ques-
tioning his authority never gems to
have entered the mind of the com-
mander of the garrison who received
him with greatest attention and turn-
ed over for his inspection all the mili
tary documents m his possession
For several weeks the "lieutenant1
was entertained by officers was pro-
minent at military reviews and per-
sonally accompanied several "puni
tive"! expeditions into the country
Wlicn he left it was with full mili
honors. Later in the course of a
correspondence with Sukhomloff it
was discovered that the man was an
imposter. In consequence of this the
commander of the garrison here has
received a scathing reprimand from
the war department and orders have
been issued wainrng garrison com-
manders throughout the empire to
teware of similar tricks of the revo-
lutionary leaders. In addition to the
information which the revolutionary
lieutenant received a wealthy land
ed proprietor mourns the loss of $V
O00 which he willingly loaned to the
dashing young "aide de.camp.

SENSATIONAL INSANITY CASE INVOLVING
A LORD STIRS STAID OLE LI
London Auguht 11. "What In
legnl history will be considered n most
celebrated case was concluded today
when the jury in the old historic Lin-
coln's Inn inquiring at the instance
of the official solicitor into the men-
tal condition of the Marquis of Town-
send returned a verdict that his lord-
ship is capable of taking care of him-
self being dangerous neither to him-
self nor others but that he is of un-
sound mind so fur as managing his af-
fairs are concerned.
The case which was already of great
public interest develoed some sensa-
tional as well as unpleasant testi-
mony. It was marked today by an
extraordinary incident when the jury
against the wish of the judge insisted
on hearing Townsend's testimony in
court even refusing the request of the
marchioness for permission to be
present. It was alleged that the mar-
quis was unduly influenced by one
Kohbius whom he had known for 14
years and the marchioness testified
that Robbins' influence over the mar-
"piis had brought on separation be-
tween herself and her husband soon
after their marriage. It developed
also that (he young marquis find-
ing his estate heavily mortgaged was

II. C. Evans of Ramona is a visitor
in the city.
. For centuries the Big Horn river
in the Shoshone Valley in Wyoming
has rolled and tumbled down through
the canons unexplored by man. Its
raging waters have been the awe and
terror of even the hardiest pioneers
of a score of generations. It is told
that only once in the last fifty years
has there been a man of sufficient
hardinood to brave its hidden and ap-
parent dangers. An old trapper A'bose
name has long since passed into the
realm of the things forgotten once
went through the black canon. He
performed the feat. in the dead of
winter niakiug the trip in a canoe
aided by the ice. From Shoshone to
Thormopolis is a distance of forty
miles by straight route. Dy the wat-
er route it is probably a hundred.
There is a drop of from thirty-five or
forty feet each mile. The Wind Riv-
er Canon through the Owl Creek
mountain is dark as night and full
of a thousand dangers. It is considered
nlmost certain death to try to pass
through this canon. The river is
wider than the Arkansas and at most
places its depth is unknown.
It remained for four intrepid terri-
tory braves to become the first navi-
gators of this mountain torrent. Hav-
ing learned that the river was ao far
unexplored a party of Tulsans who
were on the scene attending the Sho-
shone land lottery determined to
plant the flag of Oklahoma on newly
discovered territory. They tell a thrill-
ing story of the trip. Midway be-
tween the town of Shoshone nnd the
the bank of a beautiful island on which
they landed and took possession in
the name of Oklahoma christening
the island Tulsa. Having done their
duty they proceeded on to the canon
where their real troubles commenced.
They got half way through when the
raft on which they were making the
trip was thrown by the angry waves
athwart a big rock and capsized. It
persuaded to seek a wealthy alliance
nnd one witness testified that his
engage ment to a rich young Amer-
ican heiress had been nearly con-
cluded when he became affianced to
Miss Sutherst whose father a bar-
rister was an undischarged bank-
rupt but whom the marquis and his
adviser thought was wealthy. The
Somerset House clerk named Dunne
acted as a marriage broker. Town-
send signed a contract to pay him ten
per cent of whatever moneys were
received from the Somerset family.
The marquis settled $12500 on his
wife although his direct income was
only $31000 and also signed a deed
giving $3550 to Robbins. After the
marriage took place the marchioness
and her father agreed to advance or
to procure an advance to the marquis
of $135000 with the marquis' life
interest in the Townsend estate an se-
curity and further agreed to release
the marquis without charge if there
was male issue from the union within
a year. .
Judge .Bucknel severely condemn-
ed what he termed the deceptions of
Ruthrest especially as he was a bar-
rister. The ease was notable for the
flashes of wit and humorous incidents
in which the marchioness who is a
very pretty woman was prominent.
In fact the judge said if it were not so
serious the matter might be compared
to a comic opera recalling the fact
that the marquis was detained by or-
der of the lunacy commissioner and
saying that when lie wanted to remain
away from his wife as he had testified
she locked him in the room Bad that
now when all 'he wanted to do was to
stay at home with his wife it was al-
leged that he was a lunatic.
The marquis and marchiohess were
most alliectionate during tho trial.
Her testimony strongly favored his
soundness of mind but was bitterly
against the influence of Robbins over

way out of the canon and on to Ther-

A. II. Hartman and Ed Blanehard
returned from Shoshone reservation
yesterday. Mr. Hartman was the re
cipient of the 112dth . number that
came out of the box which entitles
liim to a claim after 1124 others have
raked the country with a fine tooth

pair of deuces and though he looked
hard at the hand he held liis eyes
refused to credit him with any help-
ers. In plain lnnguage he didn't
draw worth a Cent and came home
without any Wyoming in his. He
states however that he got his mon-
ey's worth on the trip and' is glad
he went and glad he got back.

Galbreath & Cheslry $10000
to $12000. .
C- F. Colcord $3000 to $4000.
Frank Chesley returned on the
Midland Valley last night from the
Jllenn pool the scene of the disas
trous oil fire Friday night and gave
the first authenticated details of the
catastrophe. According to Mr. Ches-
ley's estimate made hurriedly after
a strenuous day's woik the loss from
the fire will be between $12000 nnd
$15000. Mr. Chesley says this is a
very conservative estimnte and
states that the final summing up may
bring the figures higher. The losers
from the fire are Robert Galbreath
Frank Chesley nnd C. F. Colcord. The
tanks of John O. Mitchell were lo-
cated at least a half-mile from the
fire and were untouched. The tanks
destroyed constituted one of seven
groups owned by Galbreath Chesley
k Colcord which stand on the same
farm wheie the fire occurred.
Mr. Chesley tells the following
story of the conflagration: "I was at
Jenks when the lightning struck the
tanks and plainly saw the bolts that
started things. Two tanks were struck
almost simultaneously. One was on
the north side the other on the south
side of the Glenn farm. Both were
sixteen hundred-barrel capacity. When
the lightning struck hnge flames ira-

Muskogee Okla. Aug. 11. Work
will commence Monday on the grand

morning that cover the fair ground

so as tlNnectatoi'K tan have a fine

The hulf-mild race course wil be
well graded and the site for it is a
most excellent one. Inside the pad-

The numerous towns that have sig-
nified their intention to join in the
new state fair are sending in the
names of those to represent them as
directors and are taking a lively in-
terest in the arrangements to make
it a grand success. The fact that
each town participating will have its
own separate quarters where its dis-
play can be made and advertising
matter distributed appeals strongly
to the local pride of the various
towns because it is a minuture fair
for each of them.
Secretary Lavey leaves Monday
for Kansas City to inspect the fair
grounds there as well; as canvass the
manufacturing establishments and
machinery dealers to get as many
of them as posible to make an ex-
hibit at the new state fair. His trip
will no doubt result in securing a
sufficient number to add much inter-
est to the display. This section offers
a fine field for the Kansas City ma-
chinery dealers and manufacturers
that they desire to cultivate and
this fair is a most appropriate pace
to make an exhibit..
The meeting hed this morning by
the fair promoters was well attended
and considerable business was trans-
acted. There willbs. sessions -of the
directors and managers as often as
the occasion requires because it is
their intention to push the project
to the full limit.
First Gun of the Campaign Will Be

meet in Tulsa for the purpose of or-
ganization and outlining plans for
the coming struggle. With the advent
of the scribes the first gut. of the
campaign will be fired. All indi-
cations point to a large attendance.
The district and city republican clubs
will co-operate with the republican
editors at Tulsa in entertaining the
newspaper men and their path will
be one of roses. A successful con-
vention is looked forward to.

ON ITS PANAMA LABOR ATTITUDE
Washington August 11. Samuel
dumpers president of the American
Federation of Labor today issued a
statement concerning the action of the
Isthmian canal commission in decid-
ing to introduce Chinese coolie labor
to the work of construction of the
canal across the Isthmus of Panama
The statement is in part as follows:
"It seems that those in charge of
the Panama canal construction have
regard for neither law nor principle.
First in the most extraordinary man-
ner an eight-hour law is annulled in
the greatest publie -work -ever underf
taken by the government under the
pretense that conditions there are dir-
fcrent thou they are in the United
States. It must appeal to the veriest
tyro that if eight hours' work is re-
garded as sufficient in the compara
tively temperate zone or the Luitcti
States certainly ten eleven and even
more hours' of labor a day in the pes-
tential and miasmatic atmosphere
of the Panama wine are not only im
proper but outrageous."
New York August 11. Mr. Shonts
tonight gave out the following state.
ment with regard to the statement
issued in Washington by President
Gompers of the American Federa
tion of Labor:
"The eight hour law does not ap-
ply to unskilled labor on the Isthmus
of Panama. The entire present un
skilled labor is alien. We could not
secure this class of unskilled labor
from the United States. It is there
the other to Galbreath and Colcord.
The sixteen smaller ones belonged to
Galbreath and Chesley.
"It might have been worse" con-
cluded Mr. Chesley "but it was bud
enough as it was. I estimate the loss
at from $12000 to $i5000. This es-
timate isjiiade roughly as I have had
a strenuous time of it today. I arriv-
ed on the field early this morning and
it took us until eleven o'clock to get
the fire stoped on the burning well.
After that I had to make arrange-
ments to meet with conditions arising
from the fire and I really haven't
had time to sit down and figure out
A large number of oil men went to
the Glenn farm yesterday and all
say the devastation of the tanks was
complete "Swept 'em slick and
clean" is the way one man expressed
There was no insurance on the
burned tanks and the loss above men-
tioned will be complete.
SECRETARY OF STATE REAFFIRMS
Big Indian Picnic
Sneeiul to the World.
Muskogee August 11. There has
been a big Indian picnic on near Wy-
andotte in the Quupaw agency Peoria
Seneca Wyainlotle Modoe and Shaw-
nee Imii.ns who are not on the reser-
vations in the northeast port of the
tcrvitory. This is the annual picnic
of liiese tribes and it is staled by the
Indians that this is likely to be the
lust "stomp" dunce in which nl! the
Indian tribes will palrieipate. The
crowding of the white man has prac-
tically driven out all of the customs
of the Indians.
EARTHQUAKES IN ITALY.
Rome August 11. A severo
earthquake lasting two seconds
occurred at San Renio at Jl
o'clock this morning. The popu-
lation was panic stricken. Slight-
er shocks occurred at Bordinghera
fore not seen why the law pasoed
in the interest of American labor at
home should be applicable to alien
labor who probably never heard of
its existence. Its application would
have increased the labor cost of the
canal several million dollars. Amer-
ican lubor in this country would have
to pay its share of the consequent
increased taxation without any bene-
fit to itself.
"At the time of my interview with
Gompers in discussing the eight-
hour law. aside from what I have al-
ready said I siated that my under
standing of the reason for the enact
ment of the eight hour law in this
country was primarily to give the
highest type of labor in the world
longer hours for mental recreation
and improvement; but that with the
lowest class of labor as ' Panama
it would be more helpf-U and move
an act of kindness than otherwise
to permit them to work ten hours
and pay them for it because they
are paid by the hour.
"As to the statement of Gompers
that the existing law excludes Chin-
ese laborers and Coolies from the
United States or any of its posses-
sions th'j Panama canal zone is an
American possession and it is as much
in violation of law to bring Chinese
Coolies there as it is in other por-
tions of our country I can only say
that the commission has secured the
' opinion of the highest legal author
ities of the ? vernment. It has been
held that such law does not apply to
the can.il ror.e.

PHYSICIANS ALTERCATION ENDS IN
SENSATIONAL SLAYING AT MAYSVILLE
Oklahoma City August II. Ac-
cording to a sH'cial received from
Maysville I. T. this evening. Dr. Pat-
terson shot and instantly killed Dr.
ilerro.l at that place tonight. The
scene of the shooting was on the
main street of the town and in front
of the xmt ollice. The killing is the
result of bad feeling which has exist-
ed for some .time over business af-
fairs. Patterson having sold his prac-
tice to llerrod later came back into
the town and re-entered the practice
of his profession. Both parties were
prominent in business and religious
circles in the state. .
A heated quarrel preceded the
shooting which grew violent. The
ten.'in-r of both men was at a fever
point and the murder was undoubted-
ly the result o fan impulse. Putter-
son immediately gave himself up to
the custody of the officers.
