Detroit Mich. duly 22.-(lov. Fili-
gree gavo to tho Associated press n pre-
pared signed Interview to-ilny contain-
ing what the governor asserts to be
"facts which nre absolutely reliable
bearing upon tho relations between
lien. Alger and President McKlnley
with which tho public Is not familiar."
At thu outset the governor says: "I have
no hesitation In saying that the course
pursued by the tircsldeulin this matter
is little less than cowardly. It is to
say the least very unmanly." (lov. Pin-
grco said his Information did not come
from (ten. Alger but from "one whose
knowledge of the facts cannot bu dis-
puted." Proceed lug he says that re-
peatedly since the eastern newspapers
began their attack upon Secretary Al-
ger Ihe secretary informed the presi-
dent thnt if these press comments em-
barrassed thu administration in the
slightest degree he would resign nt
once out the president nsoftcu protest-
ed emphatically that ho hnd tho ut-
most confidence In Secretary Alger
and his conduct of the war department
and that tho country could not afford
to lose Ids services. The governor
says that at the time his "alleged alli-
ance" with Hen. Alger was announced
and before his disavowal of interviews
criticising tho president hnd renched
Washington lien. Alger hnd told the
president that upon the president's
slightest Intimation he would resign
but thopresident refused lo entertain
the Idea for a moment.
(lov. Plngrce states thnt Mr. Ilobart
was finally prevailed upon by Attorney
(iencral Hrlggs to convey to the secre-
tary that his resignation was desired
"and gave my alleged alliance with the
secretary as a pretext." Commenting
upon tho whole matter tho governor
says that Hen. Alger's "sncrllleu" was
compelled by the demands of New-
York politicians backed by the "un-
scrupulous and heartless press."
He predicts that It will be
learned "that the president himself
has been responsible for whatever mis-
takes have been made in conducting
the war." He adds: "I am told upon
the ery best authority that (Sen. Alger
made very few appointments of ollleers
during the war and that the commis-
sions were Issued almost entirely upon
the orders of the president."
The governor alleges that the more
recent attacks upon Alger In the east
were caused by his frank declaration of
opposition to trusts and lie adds
"there Is n decided odor of trusts
around the present administration
with Mark llanna as the acknowledged
'king maker.' " In conclusion the gov-
ernor calls upon Michigan people and
newspapers to protest against the In-
justice done the state's foremost rep-
resentative In public life.

"There's something bsrhsrlo about
lynching ost people will agree"
said the man with the broken note
"but I can easily name two won
things. One Is rolling a nian around
In a barrel and tha othtr Is a coat of
Ur nnd feathers. In my foolish young
days I arrived nt a town in southern In
dlsna to find tho people excited over
several arrests for robbery. A family
named Ulack eonstiting of man and
wlfo nnd n grown-up son had been
caught nnd mndo to confess lo many
thefts. Instead of putting them on
trial the people had determined to ap-
ply tnr and feathers and walk 'em out
of town. 1 hnd no objections so fax
aa the men were concerned but when
it came to the woman 1 constituted
myself her champion and declared thnl
they must walk otcr my dead body first
For about five minutes 1 was a hero
Then about a dozen men grabbed m
nnd hustled ma Into a loom nnd after
tho Mlacks hnd been dispatched of ac-
cording to programme I was brought
oij for punishment. Plenty of tar and
feathers were left but the crowd want-
ed a change nnd It was decided that 1
should have the barrel exercise. Thej
got out nnd unhended a big elder bar-
rel dropped mo Into it and replaced
the Lead nnd then all was ready.
"I wns Inclined to look upon the pro-
ceedings with contempt. I had never
been rolled In a barrel nnd so 1 hnd
no idea of thu sensations. They first
kicked It nlong the wldo unpaved street
nnd It had not rolled over more tlmn
20 times when I was sick of my job.
After they had enjoyed themselves for
a quarter of nn hour 1 was praying
for death to hurry up. I dimly remem-
ber that nf ler they got tired of the foot-
ball work In tho street they rolled the
barrel up a long hill and then let It go
kiting down. You nlk of seasickness;
but there Is no comparison. Aside
from tho feeling of nausea I was Jarred
Jolted anil bruised from head to heels
nntl In oua of the bumps lisd my nose
broken. I was Uhcontcious when they
finally took inc out and for a week I
was little better than a dend man. It
was weeks nnd weeks before I got the
revolving motion out of my head and
could walk straight nnd to this day I
can't sec n grindstone revolving with-
out being nITected by it. It would have
been far moro merciful to hang me up
by the neck."

"Well 1 met the old tnnn HUck nbout
two yenrs Inter nnd he still smelted of
tho tnr. He told me thnt it took n
weeks work with soap nnd water to get
the siult started and thnt spots wcro
left which couldn't he got off even
when rubbed with a brick lie didn't
feel the degradation so much but what
hurt his feelings was thnt he hnd been
obliged to put In more work on that tar
than In nil his life before. He hud tried
the barrel racket once and he thought
it a shade woree than tur but he had n
words of sympathy with me. On th
contrary he said If I hadn't mixed Is
