They then struck Mrs. Southers a few blows with switches and sent her into the house. Southers attempted to defend her, but was told to follow, and as soon as the another disappeared he was held by two •itsi at arm's length, while a number o* others whipped him ever the back and legs with switches until the blood ran down his body.

After the whipping the girl and Sf'tith- «rs both were warned if they mentioned the matter to any one they would be punished without mercy again. The ro«n then rode off in different directions. For several days Southers was confined to his home, but as soon as he was able to go out he went in perso-i to William H. Martin, judge of the circuit court, and told him the facts in the case. He said he had identified several of the men by their voices, and lhat in the confusion that followed four of the men were unmasked, and he demanded a. thorough investigation. Southers also' wrote to Governor Mount, asking that he use his influence in bringing about the punishment of the men.

AVil- lett, the fugitive cashier of the three broken banks, and has been placed in the hands of a detective. The affidavit on which the warrant was issued was inade last Saturday, but the legal process was withheld with the hope that the cashier might come back and assist in clearing up the financial wreck by assigning his private property for the benefit of creditors.

Washington, Nov. 20.—The iss'-- a.s to whether a state or municipality can levy an income tax on the salary or compensation of a postmaster was decided yesterday in an opinion rendered by Acting Assistant Attorney General Harrison J. Barrett for the postoffice department. The case arose on an inquiry from the postmaster at GastJnia, N. C. It holds that a state has no authority to tax the emoluments paid to any officer or agent which the United States may "use and employ ae necessary and proper means to execute its sovereign power." Barrett says: "The government of the United States is supreme within its sphere of action, and any act of state or municipality which attempts to tax the emoluments paid to the officers of the government isunconstitutional and\oid. If the power existed in a state to tax the officers or agents of the government it could thereby impair the power of the execution of its sovereignty. The postmaster at Oastonia therefore cannot be required to pay a tax upon the income of his office, either to the state of North Carolina or to the municipality of Gastonia."

[Special Correspondence.] Los AXGELES, Oct. ?.0.—In a charming cottage on West Twenty-eighth street, this city, resides the -widow of General Fremont. Furnished with s letter of introduction by a writer of national reputation, we passed the portal, which is securely guarded, and were favored with many reminiscences of the brave soldier who 50 years ago opened through the wilderness the trails that have since become highways of travel to California and the Pacific coast. The cottage, which was presented to Mrs. Fremont by appreciative friends, is hall hidden in vines and shrubbery. Roses clamber over roof and veranda, and the fragrance of orange blossoms pervades the adjacent garden. Within the house is as attractive as its exterior promises. It is an ideal home which Jessie Beaton Fremont and her daughter have created here and in which they have decided to pass the remainder of their days. Since Mrs. Fremont is a national character, who long ago was the heroine of many a romance, as well as an active participant in scenes that have gone to the making of history it will be betraying no secret to state that she is now 73 years of age, having been born in 1824. Fremont, then a young and dashing lieutenant who had already won his spurs, met her in Washington in 1840, •when she was but 16, and married her the following year. The futile attempt of the great western senator, her father, to separate the yonng lovers by causing Lieutenant Fremont to be stait on a perilous expedition had only resulted in cementing the more closely their affections. Perhaps it was this taste of frontier lie that shaped the soldier's future career, ror tne very nest year, in 1S42, he led that famous expedition to the Rockies the report of which, when laid before congress, gave hi™ & worldwide reputation. Tin 1S4-3 he made a third exploration, in 'which he brought to notice the Great Salt lake and the vast and fertile valley in which the Mormons later established their hierarchy, basing their plana upon the information he had furnished. It was on this expedition that he finally reached Sutter's fort on the Sacramento (in March, 1844) and pa-red the -way to the G»Hfomian conquest, fiat «Migfifl^ .Tcith ^hia h*. the'very next year, crossed the Sierras in the dead of winter, and, leaving his party in the San Joaquiu valley, hastened to Monterey, then the capital of Spanish California, for permission to continue his explorations. This was at first granted, then revoked, and Spanish soldiers were sent to drive* him from the country. A few days ago I saw the mountain, SO miles from Monterey, called Hawk's peak, -where he fortified himself, and, with his little command, awaited the attack of \he Californian, General Castro. Extricating himself from the perils of being surrounded by an overwhelming force, Fremont retreated finally to Oregon, where he met a messenger with dispatches ordering him to proceed to the aid of Americiin settlers. This he lost no time in MRS. FREMONT'S HOME. was elected the first American governor of California, July 4, 1S46, and on the 19th entered Monterey with 160 mounted riflemen. In Monterey today is shown one of his cannon, and the remains of his fort are pointed out on a bluff overlooking the beautiful bay. In 1847 was concluded the treaty with Mexico by which California became part of the United'States. That year also Fremont was arrested by order of General Kearny, tried on the charge of disobedience of order and dismissed the service. Nothing daunted, the intrepid explorer, now 35 years old, led a fourth expedition across the continent, during which, in crossing the Sierra Xevadas in winter, one-third of his men and all of his pack animals perished of cold and hunger. Beaching Sacramento in the spring of 1849, he then determined to settle in the territory he had been so influential in bringing into the Union, and tried to enforce a claim to the celebrated Mariposa tract, containing rich gold mines and of vast area, but he did not secure a title to it till 1855. Meanwhile, in 1850, he was elected one of California's first senators, taking Ms seat the day after her admission as a state. After the expiration of bis term he visited Europe, where he was entertained everywhere by distinguished people and universally hailed as the In 1853 he crossed the continent again for the fifth time, and the next year made his fight for the presidency against Buchanan, who, as we know to our sorrow, was elected. In 1858 he \va-i again in California, but revisited K\i- rope in 1SUO. His course during the civil war we are all acquainted with. In 1878-81 he was governor of Arizona, and his death occurred in 1S!)0. This in brief is a life sk'etch of one who probably accomplished more for California than any other man, and who was instrumitttal iu oDPJiinp to our acquisition that vase area known as the Pacific slope. It was of the exciting events of his adventurous life that we chatted with his widow, who. had lived with him through them till and who had sustained him in defeat u.ud survived to share his triumphs. Still vigorous and intellectually keen despite her burden of 73 years, Jessie Beuton Fremont yet retains possession of the rare faculties that impressed the Pathfinder aad drew to her sidu one of the most noted figures in American history. The friend who called with me could remember the exciting events during the presidential campaign, for he marched in the procession and shouted for "Fremont and Jessie," and it may have been this reminiscence that evoked her memories of that period and caused us to protract OTIT stay. But before we went she and her daughter showed us every room in their delightful dwelling and the precious mementos of the past We saw the general's first daguerreotype, the revolver, companion of his travels, letters from famous men and women, and a portrait of the beautiful woman who had fascinated him when known as Jessie Benton. When we went, our hostess accompanied us to our carriage and bestowed upon us souvenirs of .the visit in the shape of fragrant roses from their garden. Thus we bade adieu to the general's widow, standing in the pathway leading to her hotse, surrounded by evidences of love and regard and amid the blossoming vines and trees. FEED A. OSES.
