When the peopVof PlattMiioulh had
read the glad tidings last night in the
News of the great victory f.u the
American forces in the Philippine
islands over the Spaniard-t their j y
knew no bounds. They only to k time
to eat their .supper and then th 'elided
upon the st.i eoH to taliv over tho sr: it,
1 victory and give vent to their feelings
of joy. About 7:30 a dischargo of lire

house was the signal for tho people to
let loose their pent up fo-dii' gs and
give expression to Iheir joy on tho
victory Commodore Dewey hail won
over the cowardly and treaeherou'?
Dons. Soon cannonading commenced
in the vicinity of tho Kiley and in a
few moments Main street was th7
scene of a throng ol cheering, shout
ing, joyous people, each doing his ut
most to add to the demonstration of
delight. Monster crackers were fired
along the street with great rapidity
and with each report t he shout would
go up, "There goes another Spaniard."
The women were as enthusiastic; as
ttie men, and the throats of hundreds
of little boys and girls gave evidence
of the love Americans 'have for the
glorious land of the free and, as the
Spaniards can now testify, tho home
of the brave.
Now and then a skyrocket would
shoot into tho air as a reminder of
how Dewey shelled tho Castilliuu. fleet
and bombarded their fet:or.gh;.ld in
tho island and which fell an easy prey
to his prowess. It was a glorious
demonstration and u gUe ions burst of
Tho band came out and every strain

to bear more news of American win

Sheriff Wheeler returned today at

quest of one Max Price, formerly a
resident of Louisville, who was wanted
for disposing of mortgaged property.
He sold a buggy and harness at Louis

Herman. Pankonin had a chattel mort
mortgage, and then skipped town.
Pankonin took tho property away
from Murphy and Murphy sworo out
a warrant for him. The sheriff learned
that Price was at Fort Crook where
he had gone to enlist and this morn

the fort. Arriving thero the sberilT

The joy and happiness of our peo
ple last evening was marred by an ac
cident which befell one of our honored
citizens and which for a time put a
damper on the fervor of the crowd as
sembled on the street. While the
band was playing at tho Kiley corner
the people were filing crackers and
everybody was happy, B.C. MeMaken
became enthused by the demonstra
tion and his patriotism could find no
better expression than in shooting big
crackers, which make a big noise.
"Mc" has been where he heard big
shooting and big reuses before and the
crack of tho cracker was music to
him. Going into LjhnholT's postoflice
book store, ho purchased a number of
largo crackers and went out on the
street to shoot them off. Ho gave
some of them to tho boys a-ound that
they might share his fun. Securing a
torch boy who was attending the hand,
Mr. MeMaken took him, with his
torch, out to one side to get a light for
Taking a large cracker in his hand,
he held it to tho torch until it was
lighted. The crowd standing by ex
pected every moment to see hnn throw
it to the pavement. When it began to
splutter and I;, n dozen voices shouted
to him, "throw it away, throw it
fcway," but the man s, .toned "dazed, or
carried away by the excitement of the
occasion and held the d. adly dynamite
cracker in his hand o alii it. exploded.
It tore his hand into sorcds and the
wonder is it did not t r his arm off
or kill him instaaty.
The wounded man was taken to the
oflice of Dr. Cook, u lit. -re ho was given
the best attention medical, science
could afford. The flesh was literally
torn from tho third finger and tho
bare boi.e for nearly an inch was ex
posed. The bono was so shattered
that at the end it was as pointed as a
le:id pencil. Tho palm of the hand
was badly lacerated and tho flesh at
the base of the thumb was lorn to
shreds. It was found necessary to
amputate a p n t on of the three first
lingers of the hand and .the thumb.
The injured man was taken to his
home about 3 o'clock this mr-rning and
at the hour of going to press was rest
ing erisy, though somewhat feverish.
The News, with Mr. McMaken's
family and friends, regrets the acci
dent very m uch, jet is very thankful
it was no worse. "Me" has been
"through the erviee" and seen many
a day on many a bloody field, but this
is the worst injury he ever sustained.
Wo trust he will sooa be about again.
