A Morose, I'napproachablet- Hermit, laving Alone .n a Secluded Spot indanapolis, June L'I. A party of Indiana fishermen just returned from a trip among the remote and unfre-iiienled lakes of Northern Indiana ran across a little cabin occupied by Attorney Scovill. the lawyer who defended ('. .1. (Juiteau in his trial for the assassination of President (iarfield. The bumble cottage iu which Scovill was found is situate. 1 near the banks of Mud Lake, w here lie lives the life of the most rigid recluse, neither seeing nor being seen. His simple wants are supplied by the inerciiaiits or tne nearest town. He puts in bis time nobody knows how, as his unkept and uncouth figure is seldom seen outside the walks of the low cottage, half hidden by the growth of twining vines and underbrush. From an able, affable and influential barrister Scovill has grown into a taciturn, morose, unapproachable hermit, desiring no communication with the world in which he was such a con-spicious figure as only counsel for his relative eighteen years ago. Scovill feels that he is still shunned and despised by everybody for his part in trying te save the neck of Guiteau on the ground of herediatry insanity, though he contends that he did nothing but his duty. The loss of his wife and other misfortunes that seemed to pursue him with a relentless hand added to his melancholy and confirmed htm in his determination to abandon the world and spend the remainder of his days in seclusion. For several years Scovill has led the life of a hermit, spending his time at the most secluded spots he could find, ne still contends that Guiteau was mentally irresponsible for his act in killing the President, and points to the record of the family, a number of whom have both oefore and since the tragedy been confined in madhouses. LOOKS SERIOUS. Down in the foot hills, on the easterly slope of Pah-ha-Sappa, there is a great weekly paper that means to deliberately do damage to the congressional campaign of Mr. Martin. At the head of its editorial page standing a list of double it keeps barrelled, I double column queries which it serious- ly insists Mr. Martin shall answer with-, out equivocation. The great editor is as unkind as he Is uncompromising and it looks as tho he had the resourceful candidate in the hole. Mr. Martin may with credit and honor extrii at ; himself, but the situation looks serious. The Pioneer-Times frankly confeses it has been crowded to the ropes and is willing to throw up the sponge to avoid further punishment. The questions cover a wide range of political and historical researchc. They are 27 in number and quoted from the paper are: Who was responsible for the crime ot '73? Were you in sympathy with the perpetration of that crime? Have you ever tried to bring the criminals to Justice? Did you aid and abet them? Do you believe that John Sherman is honest? Did you ridicule the Chicago platform of 1896? Who in your opinon struck Mr. William Patterson? Was he Justified in offering personal violence? As a sworn offcer of the law have yon made a proper effort to bring to Justice Mr. Thomas Collins? What effect has the violence' offered to Mr. Patterson and the escape of Mr. Collins had on the free coinage of silver? If so, when and at what time? If elected what will be your attitude toward the Boxers? Will you encourage the manly art or will you use your influence to suppress all boxers? 1). i -Te:. in sta Mr. J. H.

Adjutant General's Office, Washington, June la. lyuu. ( Respectfully returned. There is no truth in the statement . that there are 300, or any other con siderable number or resignations of 1 army officers, regular or volunteer serving in the Philippine islands, upon , the tiles of the war department. A tew resignations have been re- j ceived. Those tendered for what the military authorities regard as good and sufficient reasons, have been a - cepted. The fact that an officer i- , tired of the service and wants to come home is not regarded as a goo-i and sufficient reason, and the pres.- ! dent lias declined to accept resign, e turns based on that fact alone. W. H. CAItTKIi, Asst. Adjutant General. j Argus Leader: Congressman K. V. Martin may now be saidto have fairly begun his campagin. A Hot Spring-news paper spiviks of him as 'a sham, j "a fraud of the first w ater, ' "a o; poi -ation tool." and so forth and so mi This shows that the popoerats have begun thier campaign of education. Alphena Journal: A big ratificatin.i meeting was givtn Hon. K. W. Martin, nominee for congress on the republican ticket, at Dead wood on lune (1th. Mr. Martin is the man of the bouT in South Dakota, and the Black Hills people promise to see to it that he receives the largest vote that any candidate ever polled in that district, if he does not. also run ahead of his party ticket on this sidQ of the river, we will missour guess. QUESTIONS OF THE HOUR. Extracts from the speech of Senator Lodge, chairman of the Philadelphia convention: "Our position is plain. The restoration of peace and order, now sonearly reached in the Philippines, shall be completed, civil government shall be established, and the people advanced as rapidly as possible along the road to entire freedom and to self-government under our flag. We will not abandon our task. We will not write "failure" across the page of our history. Wewill do our duty, our full duty to the people of the Philippines and strive by every means to give them freedom, content- ment and prosperity. "We have no belief in the old slave- holders' doctrine that the constitution of its own force marches into every newly acquired territory, and this doc trine, which we cast out in 1800, we still reject. We do not mean that the Philippines shall come within our tariff system or become part of our body politic. We do not mean that they shall, under our teachings, learn to govern themselves and remain under ouni flag with the largest possible measure of home rule. We make no hypocritical pretense of being interested In the Philippines solely on account of others. While we regard the welfare of those people aa a sacred trust, we regard the welfare of the American people first We see our duty to ourselves as well as to others. We believe in trade expansion. By every legitimate means within the province of government and legislation we mean to stimulate the expansion of our trade and to open new markets. POSITION AS TO CHINA. "Greatest of all markets is China. Our trade there is growing by leaps and bounds. Manila, the prize ot war, gives us Inestimable, advantage in developing that trade. It is the corner stone of our eastern policy and the brilliant diplomacy of John Hay in secure ing from all nations a guaranty of our treaty rights and of the open door in China rests upon it. We ask the American people whether they will throw away those new markets and widening opportunities for trade and commerce by putting in power the democratic party, which seeks under cover of a newly discovered affection for the rights of man to give up these Islands vumH! es ueiweeu me democratic policy of retreat and the re- publican policy, which would hold the, islands, give them freedom and pros- !

Tlic census i numeration of !: is likely to go in lo history as the mb.-t un.sat.h;tartory 'Vii taken. Fiom every village, town aim city c oinplaint is heard. Clm-ago liaiers i laim that, nearly lioo.oou uona tide residents have not been enumerated. Sioux Kails Is likely to have less than !i,uuu to her credit while lii.OOU is claimed and the most casual obsever would not place the population below 14,000. The trouble seems to be in the "system"'. The supervisor, superinteud-ants and a lot of officials seem to have absorbed the appropriation leaving hut the merest pittance for the enumerators, tno men who do the work. The eunmerators are given time limits and so hedged about with restrictions and Instructions that It is next to impossible to get a full anu fair count, particularly in cities anil towns. Dead-wood Is especially unfortunate at this time, as fully one fourth of the permanent residents are out of town, in the mines, on the ranges, in the Klondike or at ('ape Nome. A SMALL SOULED EDITOR. One of the ably edited papers of the Mark Hills opposed Martin's nomination. Martin had but. little respect for an institution so small as the paper and refused to recognize its exist ence. I'resto. the columns of our thrifty cntemporary are now well tilled with legals headed by the significant legend "Martin ti Mason, attorneys" and now the editor writes strong Martin editorials. Hot Springs Herald. What a small sou led thing the Herald man is to be sure. He cannot, rise to the apreclation of the fact, that with me nof full stature, gratitude ami principal count for more than mere dollars and cents. The "significant legend" referred to has headed numerous and profitable legals (luring the past eighteen years and at times when It meant more than ever appeared on the surface. Numerous booklets headed "In the Supreme Court," etc., have also borne the "significant legend," but all that was business, a case of value received, ai exemplification, on a small scale, of Blaine's policy of reciprocity. There are other and higher reasons for a persistent, ioyal support of Mr. Martin. First, he Is the Btrongest and best qrian in the state; there are more good, sterling quail i ties, more of the real manly manhood, In his make up than any other man In the state. In congress he will take his place with the leaders of national reputation. It Is hardly reasonable to expect small-souled, impecunious editors of the calibre of the Herald man to understand or appreciate a character like Mr. Martin, but for the credit of the newspaper fraternity, we hope they will refrain from exposing their ignorance to a cold and unsympathizing world. In other words, stop your drivel. Don't measure men and other newspapers with your 72 point rule. THE INDIAN VOTE. Capt. E. H. Allison, the old Indian ecout and interpreter, whose name and the record of his services appear iu General Sheridan's official reports on file at Washington, will expound to the Sioux Indians the doctrines of Hryan-ism and endeavor to preval-l upon as many of them as. possible to follow the flag of the Nebraska candidate. Captain Allison sa"w Mr. Bryan in Chicago last week. The captain is in Sioux City on his way to Aberdeen to consult with W. E. Kldd, chairman of the populist central committee of that state. He said? "In South Dakota thre are probably 1.888 to 2,000 Indians, half-breeds and squaw men, qualified to vote. I will visit them, call meetings and address them In their native tongue. Their votes will help our cause materially this fall. As to the success of the democratic ticket, I have no doubt, Bryan and his partner, whoever the latter may be, are sure to be elected." Batore taking up his task with the Indians, Captain Allison will visit for a few days with his daughter. Mrs. Anna Schanandore, a teacher in the government Indianschool at Albuquerque, N. M., but who is now at the home of friends in Ponca, Neb., across the Missouri , river from Sioux City. Mrs. Schanandore's mother was Sinawin, an Indian princess. Sanawin was a daughter -of that old chief of the Hunkpapa Sioux, "Scared Bear," who was killed in a battle with the Crows. Captain Allison was admitted to the Sioux tribe with Impressive ceremonies In 1866, in which year he passed thnt Sioux City, which was then but a trading station. Chief Gall presided over the adoption rites. The captain served at Ft Rice under General Otis, "whose Interpreter he was for years. He is said to be a speaker of i Word was re. eived in De.ul wood ! v, -Mer. lay of the death of Mrs. .1. Harry U'row.ler formerly Miss. Ihrdie Gorbin, of this city, at Gordon Nidi. Her death r. sulied f i oin hea rt disease. I Miss t'ui bin was married to Mr. ("row.ler in Spearfish last winter, they j thier home at New Castle Wyo. for a 'time where Mr. Corbin held a position with the McC'rea Mercantile company, i Recently however. Mr. Growder resigned his position, and started across the j country on a bicycle to look for another placee while his wife went to Gordon to visit friends, expecting to go from there to Spearfish to remain until her husband sent for her. An attempt was made to get Mr. Crowder by telegraph, but he could not be located. W. D. Driskill of Spearfish went to Gordon last night. He Is an uncle of the deceased. A Visitor From St. Louis. Kdward Knapp. of St. Louis arrived over the delated Burlington Thursday for a few weeks visit with his brother in-law Mr Pease of this city. Mr. Knapp is a printer and binder by ociipation and having recently sold his plant in the Southern city decided to rusticate amid Black Hills pines for a few weeks before again branching in to business. Speaking of the strike in St. Louis Mr. Knapp said: "Yes, I am a union man have belonged to a union for many years and when in business always employ union men, hut not with standing nil this 1 can not say that I just like the way the strikers are, or have been, carving sail in our Misfuri city. My idea is that they should have taken money that could have been very easily raised, (for every one was in sympathy with them at first) and caused a regular line of Tecent hacks to be run in opposition t othe car tompany. This would have been more effective than the blowing up of cars, breaking out windows with huge rocks kicking and beating the people as they would i. light from the cars, and last and most shocking of all disrobing women getting off the cars and leaving them naked in the streets. In this Outrageous act they are, in many cases, assisted oy wives and daughters of tho strikers who seem to think they are dclng their duty in this feind-ish attack upon those of their own sex Another source of great annoyance and danger Is the litle noiseless gun used iby the strikers. The gun works with a spring and when discharged makes little or no noise whatever but a bullet from them does much damage to whatever it comes in contact with, if it be a persons head it strikes it is almost as sure death as though it were a ball from a rifle, and if It be most any part of the body it means a wound of no small magnitude, several serious injuries have been inflicted up one person by these guns, supposedly in the hands of the strikers, from which two deaths have resulted, and much trouble is experienced by the car men and store keepers, in the breaking of their windows. 'No. I don't think the strike can last much longer, if it does it means an awful thing to St. Louis, for already the strike has cost the city thousands of dollars. An offer has been made by thestrikers to g back provided the company will take them all back in a hotly, but this they refuse to do. declaring that the leaders in the trouble shall never go on their pay roll again" Mr Knap expresses himself as being much pleased with tins section and says that were his affairs such that he might he would like very much to make his future home in the metropolis of this pine covered ar.d gold bearing region, known to the world at large as the i.iack Mills. AN APOSTLE OF PURITY. Last week a number of delegates from Deadwood and Lead went to Rapid City to attend an Epworth League convention. As the chair car on the Elkhorn was crowded with ladies and girls, a number of the boys, fifteen and sixteen years of age, found seats in the smoking room of the chair car. At Sturgis, the great "Cyclone' Davis, an apostle of populism and purity from Texas, accom-p;jiied by Judge Joseph B. Moore of Lead City, boarded the train, and also found seats, in the smoker. Seeing so many bright boys in the smoker, the apostle evidently reasoned that here was an opportunity to entertain an appreciative audience and immediately set his mouth working and never rung off until the train reached Rapid. Those who heard him. say that his stories were vulgar, obscene and profane in the extreme, without a redeeming ray of wit or humor to commend them. As one of the Deadwood boys said, "Cyclone" Davis was the foulest mouthed man I ever heard talk." Hanford Brown, of the firm of Fuller ftBrown liverymen, arrived yesterday from Manchester, Iowa, bringing with him a fine four year old stallion that was raised on the Kethum farm in Ohio. He was sired by Robert McGregor, sire of Eighty and 2:40, and the dam was the dam of G Croesus, and the dam of forty and 2:30. He is a fine animal and much admired by horsemen ,1 11 .ii nun rail 1.

More im-1 portant still, we ask the American people whether they will put in the white house the. hero of uncounted platforms, the prodigal spendthrift of words, the , lumpion of free silver, the oppo-' tn-nt of expansion, the assailant of 'courts thecourts; or whether they will retain in the presidency the union 'soldier, the leader of the house of representatives, the trained statesman who has borne victoriously the heavy burdens of the last four years, the champion of protection and sound money, the fearless supporter of law and order wherever the flag floats. Good Times vs. Bad Times. Hut there is one question which we a ill put to the American people in this weighs all others. We will .say to them: i nn are i u I he depths of ad ersity under tin' lasi democratic aduii list rail m you are iu the heights of pios-piiity to-day. Will that prosperity ..if-1 1 tine if you make a change in your president and in the party which administers your government? How long will your nod times last if you turn 'mi (he republicans and givt? political power to (hose who cry nothing but woe. woe,' thclovt'is of calamity anil the Ices of prosperity, who hold success in business to lie a crime anil regard thrift as a misdemeanor? if the democrats should win do you think business would improve? Do you think that prieoes would remain steady, that wages would rise and imployment im-plovment increase when that result of election was known? "We do not say that we have ian-aceas for every human ill. We do not claim that any policy we or any one else can offer will drive from the world sorrow and suffering andpoverty. but we say that so far as government and can secure the prosperity and well-being of theAmerican people our administration and our policies will do it. We point to the adversity of the Cleveland years lying dark behind us. It has been replaced by tha prosperity of the McKinley years. Let thorn make whatever explanation thev will, th" facts are with us." MADE A FRIEND OF LAWTON. Kind-Hearted Colored Soldier Praised By His Commanding Officer. The late General Lawton, who was killed in the Philippines, was fond of animals and would forgive a good deal of deviltry in a trooper whose horse showed signs of gtxjil care. Regimental mascots in the shape of dogs, goats, etc., iiail in him a friend, and he was also ready to overlook the fact that occassionally a private devoted perhaps more time than was advisable to looking after such a pet. The general was prounil of telling the following story as a capital illustration of the goodness and kindness of the average negro soldier: "The night of the El Caney affair," said the genera!, "when my division was marching back to El Paso to take up a new position the next morning, I was Bitting at the side ot the road with Major CJ. Creighton Webb, Inspector general of my staff, one of the plucks iest men I know. My men were filing past and we watched them. They were tired out, but full of ginger; The day was Just beginning to dawn, when we heard someone coming down, the road talking at the top of his lungs. He talked and laughed and talked, and the men with him were chattering and Joking. "Here come the colored troops,' said Webb, and sure enough the Twenty-fifth infantry came along. The man who was doing the talking was a six-foot corporal. He carried two guns and two cartridge belts loaded full, and the man to who the extra gun belonged was limping alongside him. The tall corporal was weighed down with his blanket and haversack, but in his arms he carried a dog, the mascot of his company. "Here, corporal,' said Webb, didn't you march all night before last?" "Yes sir,' said the corporal, trying to salute. "And didn't you fight all day?' "Sure, sir." "And havn't you been marching since 10 o'clock last night?' "Yes sir, said the corporal. "Well, then,' shouted Webb, 'what are you carrying that dog for?" Th, other fdurteen questions TlV. to the Boer war, the suppression of Sapho, tha author of Mother Goose rhymes and kindred subjects.
