A Report on the Mob That Burned
Washington Feb. 2. In re-
sponse to a Senate resolution the
Attorney General sent to Congress
today a statement showing the
difficulties of punishing the mob
which burned the two Seminole
Indians. The Attorney General
incloses a letter written by the
United States Attorney of Okla-
homa which reviews the matter
at length. The District Attorney
states that he has secured the
names or 15 of the mob and ex-
pects to get many more. He says
that the people are in pympatiiy
with the mob; hence it is difficult
to apprehend the offenders. His
'The conspirators are banded
together for the purpose of resist-
ing arrest and this makes it dif-
ficult for the officers to work sue
cessfully. Under the law these
conspirators will have to be taken
before the United States Commi-
sioner in Pottawatomie county
' for a preliminary hearing and a
grand jury of that county will
have to inquire into the case and
their. case will have to be tried
there all of which is favorable to
the defendants. I have concluded
to get warrants for all the men we
have but to make the arrests the
marshal must have authoiity
to use all the men and money nec-
essary. He cannot expect any as-
sistance from any citizen in that
country but must take men there
with him. I think if the prisoners
knew we can hold them here on a
limited preliminary charge they
might surrender and waive a pre-
liminary hearing but they fear we
will hold them for the Indian Ter-
ritory authoiities. Now if we
have not the authority to punish
them for murder in Oklahoma un-
der the United States statutes why
cannot they be punished for con-
spiracy and murder in the Indian
Territory where the United States
have exclusive jurisdiction? It is
true that the act of killing and
burning occurred in Oklahoma yet
a conspiracy and a part of the act
to carry out and consummate the
conspiiacy occurred in the Indian
Territorj under the exclusive
jurisdiction of the United States.
The law of the United States re-
quiring the defendant to be tried
in the counntry where the offense
was committed will protect these
offenders from punishment under
the United States laws in Potta-
watomie county. However we
will have proof enough in a few
days to justify us to proceed to ar-
rest a number and have them be-
before the United States Commis-
sioner at Tecumseh for prelim-
inary hearing. If we cannot
punish the mob under the United
States law I have no hope of the
Territorial authorities ever reach-

While the appellate court of the
Indian Territory was in session a
few weeks ago at South McAles-
ter we notice from a publication in
the Capital that the four judges
were preparing a bill to be pre-
sented to Congress dividing the
three judicial districts into four
and establishing boundary lines of
the same. The Capital gave a
brief sketch of the territory em-
braced in each district as would
be provided by the bill when
completed but the boundary lines
of the first and second districts
were not given in a way as to be
very well understood at the time.
We could not tell from the de
Ecriptions according to the Capi-
tal whether the bill would pro-
vide that Wagoner be placed in
the first or second district. If
Wagoner was to be placed in the
first and the lines properly estab-
lished between the first and sec-
ond the measure we thought
worthy of favorable consideration
as to the geographical location of
Wagoner and Vinita where the
two principal courts would be
established makes the two points
convenient for the people of the
entire district. The two towns
have excellent railroad facilities
and a divisioa of the districts in
this way would be beneficial 'o the
public at large so far as the first
district is concerned.
Wagoner is a central point with
better railroad facilities than any
other territorial town and we are
willing for any division to be
made that will benefit all the peo-
ple or a majority of the people in
this change. Would .the welfare
of the people be served by placing
Wagoner at the extreme northeast
corner of what would . be the
second district under the pro-
visions of the bill? The most
progressive town with the best
court building in the territory
that is easily reached by rail from
all portions of the country cut off
by out of the way points that is
very burdensome and expensive
on the people to reach.
We learn from Captain William
Jackron who has just returned
from Vinita and who was in con-
ference with Judge Thomas while
there that the bill as prepared by
the venerable judges bounds the
second district as follows: Com-
mencing at the Arkansas river
where the river enters the Arkan-
sas line thence northwest to the
mouth of Grand river to a point
due eat-t of the northeast corner of
the Creek nation thence along the
north line of the Creek nation to
the northwest corner; thence touth
and west including the Creek and
Seminole nations and all that por-
tion of the Cherokee nation lying
west of Grand river and the
Canadian district. Thus it will
be seen where such an arrange
ment as this would place Wagoner
and if the distinguished jurists
think we will submit to an' such
an outrage in this bailiwick they
are very much mistaken. Judges
Springer and Thomas of course
are responsible for this proposed
change as the other judges were
not familiar with the territory
covered and as a matter of fact
were less interested in the change
made in this portion of thb terri-
tory. W do not pretend to tay
that Judges Springer and Thomas
both of whom are much admired
by the people of Wagoner have
intentionally made this woeful
mistake and we believe the will
take pleasure in making the
necessary amends to the measure
after the' see that it not only does
an injustice to Wagoner but that
it is an injustice to all of the peo-
ple that it is intended to benefit
Captain Jackson was working
faithfully with a petition yester-
day and he secured many signers.
If tne bill is not changed it will be
fought with vigor until the last
hour in the morning. Sayings.

Why should Marshal Bennett
oppose the re districting of the
northern district? Litigation here
now is too expeusive.for the reas-
on that the courts are too far away
from the litigants and the dockets
too crowded to give an one a
speedy trial. It is a very common
thing for a party litigant and bis
witnesses to attend court at a great
distance from their home and at
much cost only to learn that his
case has been continued till next
term because of the crowded con-
dition of the docket his case can
not be reached. We should have
more courts and then there would
be -no such long and expensive
trips from home and no longer
the vexatious delays in trinl of
caser. which often amounts to de-
nials of justice. The redisricting
of the northern district would give
us more courts would give us
more commissioners. The people
of this district are entitled to this
and they know it and will re-
member Mr. Bennett or any other
man who stands out against a
measure so conducive to the pub-
lic good. The docket for the south-
ern district being so overcrowded

sent there to assist Judge Town-

doubt hold court at Miami at the

Perhaps at this season of universal
merry-making an account of a Japan-
ese feast will not be amis. Last De-
cember a jolly party of eight Americans
went to theMaplcclub the Delraonico's
cf Tokio. The chaperon of tflie party
knowing well the peculiarities of Japan-
ese cooking suggested that it would be
well to dine beforehand at home as
there could be absolutely nothing we
could cat. Our jinrikishas were or-
dered for eight o'clock. Prompt to the
minute the faithful coolies were at
the door. A lighted paper hung from
the shafts ofveach vehicle for every
"riksha" man is compelled by law to
carry one. With a shout the men were
oft" calling and laughing as they raced
along the dark country roads. Some-
times the last tvere first in the merry
chase. Heavy people have usually two
men to pull tandem and one to push the
"rikshas." At the door of the club-
house we were greeted by the smiling
little waitress in gay-colored kimonos
silk robes who took our wraps and
In our stocking feet we climbed the
polished stairs and passing rooms di-
lided by sliding screens where other
dinner parties were going on came to
the room reserved for us. Dainty mats
covered tfoe floors and here let me say
referring to the size of a room where
we would describe its dimensions as 18
ftet square the Japanese would term
it a six-mat room. As the "tabi" or
cloth stockings arc the only footgear
coming in contact with the mat it re-
mains clean and unbroken. Silk cush-
ions were arranged in a semi-circle
on the floor two or three inches thick
and perhaps 20 square. We were not
adepts in the native custom of sittine:
on one's feet. Two of the men squatted
Turk fashion and we Indies changed
our position in rather a restless manner
from time to time.
Immediately on our arrival supper
was served on tiny lacquer tables. We
had first soup to be ca'en with cfaop
sticks. It was a problem how to handle
these instruments but we succeeded in
spearing mushrooms at the bottom of
the bowl. Xext came raw fish with n
strange sauce and then boiled rice.
looking1 so nicely was it cooked like
a pile of snow flakes. Between each
course "saki" the native drink wa
passed around. It is distilled from bar-
ley and rice and is said to contain a
small percentage of alcohol. We were
offered persimmons which the little
waitresses pared with theirdeft fingers
and a pretty box of sweets was given
us to take home containing jelly cake
and candies in the dhape of maple
leaves to match the season. The little
maids sat in front of us ready to render
any service. Their English was very
limited. They told us their names
which seemed to us very fanciful
"Snow" "Cherry Bloom'' and "Chrys-
anthemum." They smiled and blushed
st the compliments showered upon
them. Whole chapters have been writ-
ten about the Japanese smile. A shop-
keeper smiles and bows as pleasantly to
the visitor who buys nothing as to the
purchaser of many costly curios.
"Snow" and "Cherry Blossom" told us
theiragesaslCand IS; but they scarcely
looked 12 years old so calm and serene
were their faces. They were immense-
ly interested in our "dress and jewelry
handling our rings with great awe.
One of the party exhibited his repeater
much to their delight.
The supper over the Reisha girl
danced for our entertainment. Dressed
in brocades (heavy enough to stand
alone their.hair stuck full of jeweled
ornaments like a pin cushion they
made to our minds grotesque rather
than beautiful figures looking ns if
they had stepped off screens or fans.
The musicians sat behind them. The
samisen not unlike a banjo in shape
is the most agreeable of their musical
(?) instruments. The ollhers give forth
weird and dreadful sounds. Our guides
explained the symbolic meaning of the
dnnces as they followed in slow succes-
sion. We saw eyes peeping at us from
openings in tlhe screen their owners
being anxious to see how the Europeans
were amusing themselves. The danc-
ing would hae lasted until now. had
not the tired travelers thought it best to

FUR USED IN EVERY WAY.

tuuiCH Mode of It Thin Somon
Fur is an important factor in fashion
this season made up as it is in every
way and trimming every kind of gown
from gauzy net to the heaviest cloth.
In variety and elegance the fur gar-
ments surpass anything we have ever
had before and every conceivable shape
between a small collarette and an en-
tire fur costume is worn. The latter :s
unquestionably an extravagance but it
is very elegant made of the glossy
pliable breitschwang sc popular this
season. Kedingotes of this fur are also
worn and a wide band of it on a black
cloth skirt with a blouse of breitsch-
wang makes a very cjepant costume. A
street blouse of this fur is the most
stylish garment one can possess espe-
cially if it has a sable collar. Xarrow
jeweled or plain black satin belts are
worn with this coat which to be quite
up to date has much less fullness than
the blouse made early in the season.
The bacT is flat and plain the sides
very nearly so. with a moderate blouse
effect in front and they fasten directly
jn front with revers or lap over on one
side with jeweled buttons. The basque
frill is sometimes made in a separate
Plain medium length coats fitted
closely in the back and loose in front
are also worn besides various little
street jackets reaching only to the
waist made double breasted with very
wide revers of contrasting fnr or of
embroidered velvet. All the coats
whatever the shape may be. are very
carefully fitted and very elegant as to
lining finish and style.
The blouse apparently makes no at-
tempt to fit anyone and yet if it were
not carefully cut and perfectly fitted it
would hate no stvle at all. The time
when a plain sealskin sacque with no
pretensions ns to fit was an elegant gar-
ment in good style has certainly passed
and now both taste and skill are re-
quired to make any kind of success with
A blouse coat of breitschwang shown
in the illustration opens over a vest of
rose-colored velvet and is strapped
across with black silk cord and pendent
acorns. The collar of velvet is edged
with fur. An ermine ruff with a neck-
tie of the same fur is another novelty
while for those who cannot afford the
long driving coat of fur there is one of
heavy cloth with sable collar and cuffs.
Two examples of the combination of
lace velvet and fur are shewn in the il-
lustration and one of these pelerines if
in fox with a collar of green velvet
edged with fur and cohered with beaded
guipure lace. It is outlined with a lare
frill and a cascade of lace decorates the
Foxskin boas with the whole head at
the end are very fashionable this season
with a muff to match. Boas never gc
quite out of fashion and anything so
it is long and has plenty of brills seems
to pass muster. The muff is certainl.v
an object for attention as to size and
variety this winter and the shape re-
sembling a traveling bag seems to be
one of the prime favorites. It is UMinllv
made of some long shaggy fur and left
quite open at the ends to show a white
or very bright satin lining.
Bound muffs in all sizes are still car-
ried but the prettiest of all is the mufl
with the wide frills at the ends all
lined with some pretty bright satin and
decorated with lace or a satin ribbon
bow on one side. Fancy muffs of vel-
vet are made in this way with furedg-
icc on the frills and fur tails mLcd in
with a lace bow. The use of lace as a
trimming for fur is very much in evi-
dence this season as well as fur bands
on lace gowns. -

choice. Mink is also used and with
gold braid it makes a charming finish.

A PRETTY RUG.
How to Mnkr nn Attractive Cnrprt
Chenille rusrs combine beauty and
durability and are so economical that
they commend themselves to the tftirift.v
housewife. Select soft woolen material
either dress goods or knit underwear
from the pile of cast-off garments and
cut in bias strips one inch wide. Gathe
the strips lengthwise through the mid-
dle using a coarse needle and No. S
thread. It will not be necessary to sew
the strips together; simply lap the
edges and gather through them twist-
ing tlhe roll as you go. When one thread
is full tie on another and proceed until
you hav all you need. Much of the
beauty of the rug depends upon the col-
ors used and if the goods arc faded as
they are likely to be ilye them the col-
ors yon wish with dye. UoII these gath-
ered strips into ballsand send them to a
carpet weaver whose charge for weav-
ing and chain will .not be more than 2."
cents per square yard. It docs not re-
semble ordinary carpet weaving as the
chain sinks into the rags and does not
show. Use some dull color Tor the mid-
dle and bright colors for the border. If
you prefer a hit or miss center collect
all the small pieces you have cut int.'
strips and lay in a pile by themselves.
When you have enough mix them wel!
and sew them. The shorter the strips
and the greater the variety of colors
the prettier it willbe. Hate the border
of some plain color. Heavy crocheted
fringe made of carpet chain or colored
cord should be placed across the ends

NEGROES IN CANADA.
In the Ho-
The total colored population of To-
ronto is about SO0 almost the same as
the French and the Italians. The older
generation of negroes are escaped
slaves who came here before the war
and have remained since. It will be re-
membered that negroes came to this
country in large numbers -luring the
days of slavery but man- returned
when assured of their freedom. Some
remained however nnd of these To-
ronto Hamilton and Chatham come in
for a good share. There are possibly
not more than 13 living here now of
those who did not return and like
their numbers their days are getting
ftw. The younger generation were
mostly born in Canada. The greatest
misfortu.ic they have experienced was
caused by almost total cessation of em-
ployment by city hotels of colored help
nnd since that time there have been
many negroes whose employment lias
been more or less uncertain. Of such
as are employed a goodly number are
in the Pullman car service possibly
more are barbers four are letter car-
riers some are waiters and restaurant
keepers some day laborers and among
those in special lines of business are a
photographer an ice merchant and a
coal merchant. A large number do odd
jobs of one sort or another and possi-
bly one-third are without steady em-
ployment. The women among them do
a good deal of work and they seem to
have better opportunities of employ-
ment than the men. Quite a number
are engaged as house servants others
do washing and laundry work and a
few are engaged in dressmaking and
sewing at home. They have not saved
much money though a few own a lit-
tle property in the city. It is seldom
that much crowding is found among
them and taking them together they
must be regarded as very peaceable cit-
izens. A few become troublesome at
times but as a rule the negro is in-
clined to be friendly with his neighbors
and congenial to those whom he meets.
They take earnestly to education and
are fond of reading. The children at-
tend tbe public schools and hold their
own with other pupils.
The colored man has proved himself
a good citizen and on this account it
seems a pity that most of the young
men among their number find it nec-
essary to leave for th"othcrside. They
complain that it is ditlicult for them
to secure places here which they are
desirous and capable of filling and that
they have already been forced to leave.
In "the I'nited States their labor and
ability seem to be more appreciated.
They hesitate before seeking places
here ns they claim to find the white
man is almost nniversally favored.
They are none the less conscious of the
efforts made by some to gain them a
fair recognition and where such have
been made their gratitude is universal-
ly sincere. Especially were they
grieved when one of their number
after having practiced for six months
in the band of a city regiment and
after having been granted his uniform
was refused admission when about to
be sworn in. and given as a reason
that he might "look like a biack
horse among a lot of white ones." To-

The squire says he holds the world's
record as a marrycr. He has married
people voting and old for 20 years and
he believes that it is the greatest bless-
ing that poor human nnture can know.
He is certain that very few of the
couples whom he has married have been
divorced and this goes far toward mak-
ing him an optimist.
"Nearly all the elopements that come
to me nre pleasant little shams" the
squire went on. "The young folks
want to inject a little innocent romance
into the marriage and then too they
wish to escape the expense and troutile
of big weddings. Once in awhile there
is a secret marriage but these are very
few. I am glad to say.

FERDINAND OF BULGARIA.
A Petty Sovereign Who In Coutliiiinl-lj-
.llnkliic IliuiMelf Illillctilouii.
According to the Muuchner Neuste
Naehriciiten "Ferdinand of Bulgaria
might well be designated the most ab-
surd figure amoi g the European
princes were it not for the bloody deeds
that occur about him lend him a sinis-tt-rly
grotesque atmosphere. NciOier
the greatest statesman nor the hum-
blest cafe-chantnnt singer is safe from
the company with which he surrounds
himself. From the legal proceedings
which have recently occurred may be
learned much of what not yet made
public by the European press goes on
around this extraordinary member of
the house of Cobuig."
The Vienna Zeit. too asks who arc
actually the most intimate counselors
of the prince. "One must not go back
too far" says that newspaper "or one
mny chance upon banditti. Leaving
the ashes of the fathers to rest in peace
and dealing only with the men who
form the entourage of the prince one
would until rccentlv have found at their
h?ad a French nobleman a Count dc
Forras who was learned in heraldry
nnd ns proud as a Spanish hidalgo but
did not speak one word of Bulgarian.
His olliec was to look after the splendor
of the court. He was a devout Catholic
and went to mass regularly. Hut now
he is gone and in his plnce there is a
jovial j oung French count such a one
ns may be met with by the dozen in
the salons of the Parisian haut and
demimonde. He is a good fellow speaks
French prettily is a distinguished cav-
alier a clever actor in- short an ad-
mirable Crichton. Before the marriage
of the prince there acted as a sort of
housekeeper a certain Countess Gren-
ntal who later married a favorite of
the prince. Dr. Stantschoff by name
who is at present diplomatic agent in
St. Petersburg and whose absolute in-
significance the Bulgarians had plenty
of opportunity to discover. Dr. I.ever-
kuhn head of the library nnd of the
zwilogicnl gardens is certainly an hon-
est man but he has nothing to do with
politics. Very different elements play
a part in the politics of the country;
notably those which have come to light
during '" Szimon affair and also such
person- l'oitescheff and Xovelitsch
or the iost office assistant Siatareff
whom the prince has raised to the dig-
nity of his table companion and Av-
radalijeff who is at the head of the
prncely seeret police.
"These are the grandees of the new
Bulgarian court. They sit in the gala
coaches which on state occasions follow
the prince when they are dressed in
tin If onus covered with gold lace with
footmen in knee breeahes lace jabots
wigs with queues etc. while the horses
are caparisoned with glittering silver
harness and nodding plumes on their
heads; and in silk and satin-upholstered
coaches the courtiers follow dressed
in gala costumes like the others the
whole a train such as the duodecimo na-
tion is not worthy of; in short a carica-
ture in the peasant country of Bul-
garia of princely rococo days.
"There were at one time robes of
state designed by the prince which
were well fitted to such processions.
They had a train several yards long
which in default of pages was wont
to be carried by two pupils of the acad-
emy lint the prince wore this opera-
bouffe mantle only once. The amuse-
ment which it everywhere awakened
induced Stambuloff to tell him the
truth and the prince never again
"Ferdinand has introduced into dem-
ocratic Bulgaria the kis of reverence.
From the highest official to the lowest
peasant every Bulgarian male or fe-
mnle is obliged when he approaches
the prince to kiss his hand. This spec-
tacle may be seen at every parade in
theaters balls at court entertainments
in short wherever the prince shows
himself in public. The highest digni-
taries in the land stand about in groups
and the prince goes from one to the oth-
er holding out his carefully -gloved
hand to be kissed truly an edify ins
picture of the manners of the time of
Louis XV.. leavened with Muscovite
Cifsaropapism. Fear of the prince is
only modified by the sense of his al-
surdity which lias penetrated the most
remote strata of the population." Chi-
