Classical Example of Cheek.
Surely It will remain a clnsslcal ex
ample of "cheek" that la described In
the following story, told by tho Coun
try Gentlenum: One of tho English
.generals, during tho Boer war, hav
ing secured a turkey, asked hj
friends to dinner When tho day
camo tho bird has disappeared. It
was traced to the quarters of tho
naval brigade, and a young midship
man owned to having 'pinched" it.
Tho infuriated general exhausted his
vocabulary In abuse- of this delin
quent, who replied; "I'm very sorry,
sir! But you wouldn't havo liked it.
Wo tried to get our teeth through it,
but It was so tough wo had to throw
It away. If I'd known you would havo
taken It so much to heart I'd havo got
tho carpenter to mnko you another."

by tho side of tho her dead master
and In her fierco affection would not
allow the search party to touch tho
body. At last Is was Bocured and
fastened to a tree, but tho faithful
animal gnawed through tho ropo and
returned to Its guardianship of the

Report that the Japanese Have Sunk '
Seven Merchant Steamers In the
Harbor Demand in Connection
With Manchuria.
LONDON Tho Dally Telegraph
published a dispatch from its Toklo
correspondent, which says:
"On tho night of March 22 the Jap
anese fleet renewed the attempt to
bottlo up Port Arthur. Sixteen war
ships escorted seven merchant steam
ers to tho mouth of tho harbor and
under cover of tho bombardment tho
steamers were ran In and sunk In do
fclred positions. Three hundred Jap
anese offlcois and bluejackets volun
teered for the duty. An official re
port Is expected this esenlng."
Tho Dally Telegraph's circumstan
tial report from tho Toklo correspond
ent that Japan sUccocedcd in bottling
up Port Arthur on the night of March
22 ir, not confirmed from any other
quarter. Tho special dispatches to
tho other morning papers announce
no new developments, but throw a few
sidelights on tho operations.
Tho Standard's Tien Tsln corre
spondent says that Viceroy Alexleff
renewed his demand for tho with
drawal of all Chiriese officers end sol
diers from Manchuria on tho ground
that It would be Impossible to conduct
tho war properly.
Tho Dally Mail's correspondents
give from Japanese sources some de
tails of the condition of Port Arthur,
which wero gathered during a recent
visit of a Chinese Junk, there. It Is
assorted that a boom had been placed
across thoentranco to tho roadstead,
which was alive with mines, so de
fective and so carclesbly laid as to
equally endanger both Russian and
Japanese vessels. Tho damaged Rus
sian warships, those reports say, wero
repaired with such haste that It Is
dangerous for them to leave their an
chorage. Eight battleships and ciuls
ers and ten torpedo boat destroyers
aro now uninjured and often leave the
r harbor, but never go far from tho
Japanese naval officers praise the
quality of tho Russian torpedo boat
destroyers, which, they confers, havo
done excellent work,, but they declare
that tho Russian shells are badly
fused and fall to explode, except when
thoy strike direct upon armor, and
that their charges of guncotton aro in
sufficient to cause serious damage.
The Dally Mall's Shan Hal Kwan
correspondent says that tho JapanosG
aro secretly engaging Chinese to act
as irregular corps.
"Buffalo Bill" Testifies that His Wife
Tried to Poison Him.
DENVER. Colonel William F.
Cody ("Buffalo Bill") made a depo
sition before a notary in this city
Wednesday in the action for divorce
which he has begun In Big Horn coun
ty. Wyoming. Colonel Cody will sail
for Europe shortly and will be absent
from tho country when his suit Is
tried. In tho proceedings today Colo
nel Cody was interrogated by his own
attorney and was subjected to an ex
amination by counsel for Mrs. Cody.
"Mrs, Cody tried to poison me three
years ago," the colonel testified. "She
had frequently threatened to do it.
Wo were visiting in Rochester, N. Y
during the holidays of 1900, and the
day after Christmas 1 was ill. I sup
posed tho turkey and plum pudding
did not agree with mo. Sho said sho
would fix mo up. She pretended to
give me medicine. It was poison. It
almost finished me for I was uncon
scious for some time. I think it must
havo been an overdose, for it made
mo vomit, and I suppose this saved
my life."
Colonel Cody related many in
stances of his wife's having humili
ated him, at his "former homo" in
North Platte by her conduct toward
Bermuda Lilies Arc Coming.
NEW YORK. Tho first Btoamshlp
load of Easter lilies has arrived from
Bermuda. This consignment was
mainly for the far west and as soon
as the vessel docked, express vans
transferred the flowers to tho railroad
station and they wero started to their
destinations. There were thousands
of rratos in the cargo, requiring the
most dollcate handling. It is expected
that more of tho flowers will be
brought north this jear than over before.
Making Investigations Into Its Opera
tions. WASHINGTON The department of
coimnerco and Jnbor, through tho bu
reau of corporations, la making au
Investigation Into tho operations of
tho beef trust. A part of tho Investi
gation Is being conducted in accord-
aneo with a resolution passed by tho
houso of represontatlxes rccontly.
Prior to tho adoption ot the resolution,
tho department, through its regular
channels, had collected certain Infor
mation concoinlng tho beef trust. Tho
resolution which was drafted by Hop
rescntatUo Martin of South Dakota,
requested tho department officials to
ascertain, If possible, tho cause of tho
difference In pi Ice between beef on tho
hoof and dressed 'beef. It was pointed
out that western stJcliiutMi believed
that thoy wero being discriminated
against by tho and that tho
markets of tho count! y wero being
manipulated to tholr detriment.
Neither Secretary Cortelyou nor
Commissioner Garfield of tho bureau
of corporations will discuss tho Inves
tigation in any way. It is made per
fectly clear, however, that this Inves
tigation, as well as all others conduct
ed by that department, will bo mndo
by the officials of tho department
themselves, without assistance; that
tho department will not stoop to tletcc
tlvo work In the conduct of tho In
quiry and that tho proceedings will bo
devoid of any spectacular features.
There will ho no public hearings and
publicity will bo avoided so far as pos
sible. Tho pending Investigation Is being
conducted by Commissioner Garfield,
under tho direction of Secretary Cor
telyou. Beyond that fact, practically
nothing is obtainable. Whether tho
results of the investigation aro to bo
made public at its conclusion will de
pend entirely on President Roosevelt,
Alaskans who have been in Washing

several of thtfm called at the Whlto
Houso again.

Tho complainant and the intervenor

no reduction has been made, defend

conditions may havo changed feubse
quont to tho making of tho original
oi'der, that tho through rate from that
territory is reasonable and just, not
withstanding tho ndditlon of tho ter

Lobby Falls to Kill Measure In the
Iowa House.
DES MOINES, la. Tho houso of
reprcsentathes passed tho hanking
bill, which permits tho state to de
posit its money at Interest, by a voto
of 05 to 15. Thoro was a strong lob
by -of bankers working ngalnst tho
measure. It Is belloed it will go
through t!ie senate with little opposi
tion. Tho hill to raise tho compensation
of county supervisors was killed by
tho house by a decisive voto. Tho
outlook is that none of the measures
asking for an increase in the salary
of county officers will go through both
houses at this session,
