Those tree of ours, those prairie trees,

The message of tbe distant shores
Where corals pare the sanded floors,
TJpon whose strands sang Troubadors
'Neath olive tree.
Sweet winds from trembling barps of pine
Are playing low In trees of mine.

And mornlng'dew tell beads upon
These weeping trees.

And o'er the unknown baby' bed J

-' Baptized with tears. Its only rain.
While erery wind repeat the Train
To moaning trees.
We are not blessed with hazel dells,
Nor with tbe pine's tall plnacles,
. Yet planted trees are temples green
Where nature sings her psalms between,
That echo In each lone ravine
From farmer's trees.
And labor bears tbelr notes along
Its yellow harvest sweet with song, corn
' While dreoplng boughs breathe o'er tbe
Whose bright leaves drip with dew of

'Neath waving tree.
Within the bush of twilight time

And set mons sweet they tell to me
Of ultimate humanity
The life divine that is to be

THE BACCARAT CASE

France Reduces tbe Corn Duty.
London, June 9. Tlie rerdict In the
baccarat case is against Sir William Gor
don Cumming. 1
Gen. 'Williams caused sensation
when the court opened by arising and
addressing the chief justice. He
demanded protection from Sir Ed
ward Clarke, who, he said, had
in his address - accused him
(Williams) of sacrificing an innotent
man. The chief justice declined to
hear any statements from the general,
who retired in disgust. The lord chief
justice then began his charge to the
jury, which was favorable to the de
fendants throughout. The jury were
out fifteen minutes when they returned
with a verdict of "not guilty." The
verdict was received with mingled ap
plause and hisses, the judge rapping
vainly for order. The result was
in accordance with general expectation.
Tba Uohrlng Sea Measure.
London, June 9. Lord Baliabury,
in moving a second reading of the bill
relating to the Dehring sea, made sym-
Sathetiu reference to the death of Sir
oun Macdonald. He said the bill was
to enable England to be free to act on
the subject of arbitration, and provided
for giving compensation where there
should be any real loss through England's
action. The government did not admit
liability for the whole compensation.
Lord Salisbury said further: Canada
has consented to an order in council for
bidding the killing of seals in Behring
sea by British subjects on two condi
tions: First, that arbitration shall pro
ceed; second, that compensation shall
be paid to the owners of fishing vessels
sustaining a loss through the action of
the government. Whether the gov
ernment could persuade Canada to pay
a part of the compensation Lord Salis
bury did not know, but it was impos
sible to defer action until that difficulty
could be solved. Therefore the govern
ment had assumed the liability, which
could not be heavv." Lord Kimberly
expressed bis satisfaction with the fact
that there was every prospect of closing
the long controversy with the United
States. Tbe bill was read a second and
third time and passed.
The house of commons passed the
Behring sea bill as received from the
Tb Oiunibus Strike.
London, June 9. Messrs. Mann and
Burns addressed an enthusiastic meet
ing of the omnibus strikers. The offer
of the companies was unanimously re
jected, and it was resolved to stick to
the original demands. Should these
demands not be conceded by Wednes
day the hostlers would be forbidden to
attend horses. The executive commit
tee of the London trades council has
issued a manifesto, appealing to the
public to support the strike. The
magistrate refused to grant a summons

Ilolrs OlssatisQed with the Ilequest at
Good Old Mr. Crimea.
Atchison, Kan., June 9. The trial
of the Grimes will case was begun in
the district court to-day. The case in
volves property worth $150,000. Most
of the property wus originally the es
tate of tbe late Major L. B. Urimee

master stationed at St. Louis.
He left it to his mother, Susan Grimes,
who died a year ago, giving most of it to
five children, limiting the share of one
of the five and entirely cutting off two
children of a deceased son. Tbe reason
given in the will for the nnequal di
vision was that tbe fifth child's husband
was indebted to E. B. Grimes' estate.
No reason was given for cutting off tbe
two grandchildren. The best legal
talent has been employed on both sides
and a long and expensive litigation is

Producers Advantage or Hi Law
Senator On ay Taking Care
ot Mi Friends.
Washisotox, D. C.Juno 0. There
is serious talk of withdrawing the en
tire United States legation from Hayti.
It is already settled that Minister
Douglass will not go back after his
leave of absence, and instead of sending
a successor this country may simpjy
drop diplomatic intercourse because
of the double dealing of . the Hippolyte
government ia regard to the Mole St.
Nicholas. It would be a matter of
much satisfaction to the naval
authorities who had the negotiations in
charge if thia should be done, for they
feel keenly not only the failure of their
efforts, but tbe insulting manner in
which they were treated by Hippolyte.
Secretary Tracy, it is believed, favors
this method of retaliation, and since it
would be an easy manner of letting
down Minister Douglass it is highly
Srobable that this course will be finally
etermined upon. The shabby treat
ment of this cotirtry by the Haytian
government in this matter has been a
subject of discussion among state and
navy department officials ever since Ad
miral Glierardi reported that Hippolyte
bad positively and insultingly declined
to keep his promise for the lease to tbe
United States of this desirable coaling
station. If we are to have it the Mole
bt. Nicholas will be secured on ad
vances made by tbe black republic. The
authorities here will not moke another
move in the matter beyond showing in
some way its contempt for the bead of
National Sugar Honnt lea,
Washington, June 9. Some farm
ers in Nebraska, Illinois and Indiana
and a few other states have been writ
ing to tbe internal revenue office that
they fear there will be so much red tape
in securing maple and beet sugar boun
ties that they will have to abaudon hope
for it. The law gives a bounty of about
two cents a pound, so that tbe bounty
realized on l,0o) pounds, which is a
good yield, will be i-'O. To secure
tins a tarmer must take out a
license and: submit bis nrounct
to a government inspector to be
tested, wieghed, etc Furthermore,
as the inspector may- nofi- get
aronnd on time, the farmers say, they
may miss tne opening or the market in
the first art or the munle suorar season
when the product demands about 6 per
cent more than k does later in tne
season. Commissioner Mason said that
he expected to recommend to the secre
tery of the treasury the appointment of
ten or twelve sugar inspectors within a
week or ten days. The treasury de
partment is arranging every facility to
give sugar producers advantage of the
Labor' Protest Heeded. :
Washinstos, June 9. gome time
since the managers of the beet sugar
station at Norfolk, Neb., requested the
commissioner of Indian affairs to allow
the Indian children at tbe Genoa train
ing school to pick the weeds from the
beet and generally make themselves use
ful. The commiesiener heartily en
dorsed the proposition and notified
Superintendent Backus, of the training
school at Genoa, to make necessary ar
rangements to transport the children to
Norfolk, which is only a short distance.
Before they had started, however, the
citizens of Norfolk, principally the labor
element, at a meeting held to take ac
tion in regard to the matter, adopted
resolutions vigorously condemning the
plan. This information was contained
in a communication to Commissioner
Morgan, who thereupon notified Super
intendent Backus to make no further
arrangements and allow the matter to
Qnay and His Friends.
WAsniNOTON', June 9. Senator Quay
arrived in Washington, accompanied by
Collector Martin of Philadelphia. The
senator, accompanied by Mr. Martin
and Judge Gilkerson, tbe second comp
troller, called on the president and had
a long talk. To start with he handed
the president the resignation of Mr.
Martin as collector at Philadelphia. He
then talked with the president about
the appointment of Mr. Martin's suc
cessor and about tbe appointment of a
Dticcessor to Judge Schofield, of the
court of claims, who is soon to retire.
He urged the appointment of Judge
Gilkerson, and it is expected that he
will be appointed. In that event Sen
ator yuay will probably suggest some
one for second comptroller.

DOWNFALL OF A P.1EACHER.
A Gambler WIioim He Converted After

Springfield, Ills., June 0. The case
of the Rev. George Vancil and the Rev.
Jerry Holmes, the counterfeiters of
Duquoin, who have len on trial here
several days in the United States dis
trict court . has attracted a great deal
of attention throughout tne state.
Judge W. J. Allen sentenced Vancil to
one year and Holmes to three years at
hard labor in the Chester penitentiary.
11 tli parties entered A plea of guilty.
Vancu has lived in Duquoin for twenty
years, and this was his first of
fence. He has a wife and eight chil
dren, who are left without support.
Previous to 1389 Vancil was A Method
ist preacher, but was removed from his
charge in Pone county for telling a
falsehood, and then joined the Baptist
fold. He was conducting revival ser
vices in Pope county, where he met
Jerry Holmes, who was then a Kambler
and a bard case generally. Through
Yancil's influence Holmes, who bad
been an avowed infidel, became convert
ed. Holmes went to Dnquoin and boarded
with Vancil brother-in-law, A. P. Ad
kins. Farmer Adkins found a sack of
counterfeit money secreted in bis honse,
and notified the authorities. When
Vancil read of the arrest of Holmes he
broke down and confessed having used
some of the counterfeit money.

Dispute Between Caaada and the I'nlted
States Over the Ownership of
St. Paul, Minn., June 9. The row
between the United States and Canada
over Hunter's island, lying directly
north of Lake county, Minnesota, is ex
citing a great deal of attention owing
to the millions of tons of iron ore which
the island contains. Among the claim
ants are many St. Panl, Minneapolis
and Duluth capitalists, who will at once
homestead the island and raise an issue
between tbe United States and Great
Britain as to the boundary line between
Canada and Minnesota. Heretofore it
has been claimed by Canada that the
entire island belonged to the British
possessions, and all American maps have
shown it to ue on tne Canadian side 01
Professor N. H. Winchell. state a-e-
olotrist. savs: "Neither the United
States nor Canada has ever surveyed the
eastern portion of Hunters island. We
nave been wrong in placing the bound
ary line where it is at present, on the
south side of the eastern portion of the
island, for the treaty plainly says that it
must rnn through Cypress lake, which
is on the north side. I cannot see how
it could run anywhere else, according to
the terms of tbe Webster-Ash burton
treaty. The men who bave taken np
claims on the eastern portion of Hunt
er's island seem to have a good case, as
Apparently the land they are on belongs
to the United btates and not to the Lu
glish government." ,
BLACK HILLS PIONEERS.

Dead wood, S. D., June 9. The
society of Black Hills Pioneers, to

opportunity for the interchange of
many reminiscenes and hair breadth ex
periences with Indians in early days.
