Nez Perce Tribe in Idaho Will
Take Prominent Part in
War on Rum.
One thousand opper colored follow
ers of Chief Joseph, a once powerful
leader of the Nez Perce tribe in the
panhandle of Idaho, will join the pro
hibition forces in the fight against the
rum shops in Nez Perce county, when
the campaign begins to make the dis
trict part of the arid zone. The Indian
Voters' league has organized its forces
under the direction of James Stuart,
district forester, who is instructing the
reds in the duties of citizenship. The
Nez Perce treaty contains a clause for
absolute prohibition, inserted by the
United States government at the
urgent request of the chieftains, who
declared they would not otherwise
ratify the compact, a3 they had watched
the effect of rum on the reds. Many
of the Indians in the county are edu
cated and wealthy. They own consider
able farming land on the reservation,
and will soon receive more than $130,
000 from the government, most of
which will be deposited in the First
Americans' Bank at Fort Lapwai,

; Cuban Trouble
F. A. Murphy Declares that Pop
ulace is Too Restless.
F. A. Murphy, clerk in the War de
partment and for many years of the
clerical force of the Department of the
Missouri headquarters, returned Tues
day ! morning from a three years'
absence in Cuba, whore he has connect
ed with the American army of occupa
tion. Mr. Murphy, who has had ample op
portunities for observing affairs in Cuba
can se trouble coming.
"I do not think," said he "that the
restless, revolutionary spirit among the
native Cubans can be extinguished dur
ing this generation at least. There are
but two classes in Cuba -the rich and
tho extremely poor. There is no middle
class as in this country. The unscrupu
lous and adventurous spirits of the rich
er class can always rely upon a big
following from the poorer class, and a
revolution can be started there in little
or no time.
"I think as a rule that the native
Cuban would prefer the Spanish to the
American occupation. Under the Span
ish system the country was run on the
loot, rob, tax, graft and brigandage
system, and the Spanish grandees en
couraged the system as a plan saving
them lots of trouble, and at the same
time permitting them to hold the im-
proverished classes in the most complete
WAR GOOD PRETEXT.
"A revolution was a good pretext for
Spanish terrorism and gave license to
the revolutionary spirits to rob, murder
and steal without hindrance. Under the
American system this activity and
diversion is not permitted, so many of
the Cubans are without an occupation. '
"The conservative and business ele
ments of the island are decidedly in
favor of American occupation and
American annexation. This is partic
uarly true of the Spanish business in
terests as well as of the American,
Canadian, German and English business
men, who are the dominating business
influences of the island. It is they who
own, control and operate the the rail
ways and all the big enterprises of the
President Gomez is a politican rather
than a statesman. I do not think he is
very friendly toward the United States.
At the same time, I am satisfied that
he wants to make a good administra
tion. Vice-President Diaz is the better
statesman and diplomatist of the two,
but his influence is overshadowed by
that of Gomez. He is disposed to be
friendly to the United States, recogniz
ing tho diplomacy of such friendship.
President Gomez is determined to crush
out every incipient rebellion against
his authority. He has issued orders for
the immediate execution of all revolu
tionists who seek to oppose his power
and several have executed, with others
marked for summary removol.
"Cuba is a country of tremendous
possibilities, and as soon as a stable
form of government is assured, the
island will be one of the most prosper
ous countries on the globe."-Omaha
Joke Was a Boomerang.
A good joke is going the rounds at
the expense of Col. Falter, (the council
man.) Dropping into Col. Irwins' cigar
stand recently for his customary morn
ing smoke, he picked up the dice box
and made a few throws. First came
out four trays, then three sixes, then
I five deuces, then four fives. The big
gun of the first ward immediately con
j eluded that he was "right" and went
' out on a still hunt for Col. Thrasher, in
i tending to even up an old score. In the
meantime the word had been passed
around and quite a bunch of the faith
, ful had gathered to see the fun. But
alas! Col. Falter nays he is done for
ever with the dice. Ho was beaten

Will Murray Meets Death at Mis
souri Pacific Elevator.
A most frightful accident occurred
this morning at the elevator of C. L.
Jean & Co., located near the depot on
the Missouri Pacific tracks, in which
Will Murray lost his life. As he was
alone at the time the exact particulars
will never be learned.
Some man whose name was not
learned went to the elevator to seo Mr.
Murray just before the arrival of the
south-bound passenger. He found him
dead, reported the matter to Agent
Norton of the Missouri Pacific and then
took the train. Mr. Norton at once
called the doctor and went to the eleva
tor. They found the unfortunate man
in a kneeling posture by the gasoline
engine, his overcoat tightly wound
around the shafting, and his body badly
bruised and mangled.
The supposition is' that in moving
about the room his overcoat became
entangled in the shafting and he was
thus beaten to death, the overload thus
being placed on the engine being sufli
cient to finally stop it.
Mr. Murray was a young man about
25 years of age and lived with his par
ents, Mr. and Mrs. William Murray,
near Mynard, driving back and forth
from his home to his work in this city.
The sorrowing family have the heart
felt sympathy of .the entire community
in their sad bereavement.
