I d rather live la Bohemia thai any other
For only there are the ralue true,
Aad the laurelf fathered la all meua new.
The prises of traffle and state are won :
Br ihrewdoeM of feroe or deeds undone:
But fame la tweeter without the feud. ,
Aad the wlee of Bohemia are aeror shrewd.
Here pllarlms stream with a faith sublime
From every elaas.aod ell me. and lime,
Aspiring only to be enrolled
With the names that art writ In the book of
Aad each one bears In mind or band
A palm of dear Bohemia land.
The scholar flrst, with his book-e youth
Aflame with the f lor of harvested truth :
A sirl with s picture, a man with a play.
A boy with a wolf be has modeled In clay,
A smith with a marvelous bllt and sword,
A player, kln, a plowman, a lord
And the player Is kin- when the door Is past.
The plowman is crowned and the lord Is last!
I'd rather fall In Bohemia than win In another
Torre are no titles Inherited tbero,
No board or hope for the brainless heir,
No slUed dullard, native born.
To stare at bis fellow with leaden scorn ;
Bohemia has none but adopted sons;
Its limits, where fancy's brifht stream runs:
Its honors, not garnered for thrift or trade,
But for truth and beauty men's souls have
To the empty heart in a Jeweled breast
There Is value msvbe In purchased crest;
But the thirsty of soul soon learn to know
The molsrurelesi froth of the social show;
The vulgar sham of the pompous feast
Where the heaviest purse is the highest
Ths organized charity, scrimped and Iced,
la the name of a cautious, statistical Christ:
The smile restral ned, the respectable cant,
When a friend In need Is friend la want:
Where the only aim Is to keep afloat,
And a brother may drown with aery In bis
Ob, I long for the glow of a kindly heart.
And the grasp of friendly hand.
And I'd rather live In Bohemia than in any
other land. John Boyle O'Reilly.

SAT DOWNAND DIED,
Four Sew York Murderers Executed
by Electricity at Sing Sing.
GUILTY OF MUCH CSIME.
Aa ladlaaapolis Wmaa Charged With
Wholesale FoUoalog Treable la

bathed aad Killed by ladlaos.
Siva 8io, N. Y., July 7. James O.
Blocutn, Joseph Wood, Harris A. Smith
and Shihiok Jugiro were k'.llod by elec
tricity in the prison in conformity with
the law of the state for the crime of
murder. Slocura was executed at 4.43
a.m., Smith at 5:KJ, Wood at 5:3S and
Jugiro at 6.13. The szecntioai went off
smoothly. All of tha men were killed
on the flrst contact. There was do
struggle when they were stripped down
and do resistance of any kind. Every
precaution was exercised to avoid
the mistake which made the
Keromler execution at Aoburn
a failure, and the result was an entire
success. No newspaper men were ad
mitted to the prison, the only witnesses
of the execution being those designated
by law. From these it was learned that
11 fonr men met death bravely and
there was not a strnggle nor a hitch at
any part of the proceedings. The
medical and scientific experts who were
present are generally of the opinion
that electricity is preferable to hanging,
if the arrangements are aa perfect as
they were this morning. All agreed
that none of the men executed
suffered the slightest paiu,
death being absolutely Instantaneous.
The electrodes were not applied as in
Kemmler's case, to the top of the skull
and base of the spine, bnt were bound
to the foreheads of tbe condemned men
and to the calves of their legs. The
current was turned on in each case for
twenty seconds. In each case there
were evidences of an apparent revival
as with Kemmler, but the experts agree
that the seeming revival was merely a
reflex muacnlar action and that tbe men
died at the first shock.
Constables Killed by fsdlaas.
Babers field. Cat., July 7. Friday
last Constables John Powers and Sam
Oann, with Mr. McCoy, a liveryman of
Lemore, went out to the Mojave desert,
near Coyote Holes, to arrest the Indians
charged with firing haystacks. A fight
ensued and Powers and McCoy were
killed, also two Indians and two horses.
(Jann's mustache wae shot off, but be
maaaajed t get Power's boras, his own
Having been killed, and rode to South
Fork on the Kern river for help.
Twelve men went back with him. Tbe
two Indians who were killed were
found buried in tbe sand. Tbe body of
Powers was fonnd with his throat cut
from ear to ear. The flesh was torn
from McCoy's face in shreds. Powers
was a single man. McCoy leaves a wife
and six children. Kiowa, the ring
leader of the Indians. Is a bad character.
He and his two sons were concerned in
the murder of an Indian not long ago.
He had a personal grudge against Pow
ers. A posse of citizens have gone in
pursuit, but the Indians are well
mounted and armed and it is feared
that more blood will be shed. There
were six Indians in the first party, but
there are perhaps a hundred more in
the vicinity, and several hundred be

A Raee Fight at Indianapolis.
Indus apo is, July 7. Among the
contestants for military honors here
during the past week were the Macon
Cadets. As several members of that
company were walking along Illinois
street they saw a colored man named
Brown getting his boots blacked, when
one remarked, "We are going to kill a
lot of you," whereupon Brown jumped
up ana struck one of them in the face
and started to jun. The cadets followed
him with drawn knives and one of thmi
slashed him in the back of the neck.
Brown then ran into a colored saloon on
Kentucky avenue, when a gang of col
ored toughs started out to make it a
"free-for-all fight." using chair", bil
liard cues and rocks as weapons. In the
melee Cadets Edwards aud Williams
wr severely injured, and Brown and
Lynch (colored) were badly used. Tbe
cadets threaten vengeance before leav
ing town. Tbe cadets are being de
tained pending an investigation. All
the negroes have been arrested. The
affair caused a great deal of exciteiueut.

St. Part, July 7. Colonel Edwin C.
Mason, in command of the Third regi
ment at Fort Snelling, while admitting
that Uncle Sam' regular were caught
gambling Friday evening. Insista that
the games were not played in bis juris
diction. He says tbe center of opera
Ion of stud poker fiends la a ba:!iii3;
of the Fort Snelling ordnance depot, un
der command of Captain William (ier
lich, who has charge of men of sev
eral regiments of the department of
Dakota. Captain Gerlich admitted that
bis men were playing cards, and per
haps for money. On the day the dis
closures were made he said he had been
informed that some of his men were
playing stud-poker in their quarters be
tween sundown and 11 p. m., but pro
fessed to think this was not a serious
matter. Why there should have been a
regular gambler's layout of table, chips,
and rake-off to some person or persons
not named be did not attempt to ex
plain. That there is a rake-off of f? to
$300 a night as long as the privates have
any money after paydayg is too plain to
admit of denial.

LAND SEEKEBS SWINDLED.
Bold Work of (harpers at Des Molncs
Ticket told lor Positions la Line
at tbe Land OflUne.
Des Moi.ieh, July 7. When the gov
ernment land office opened in tbia city
Monday morning there were several
hundred persons present, ready to file
claims for lands on tbe line of tbe Sionx
City and St Paul, Chicago, Milwaukee
and St. Paul and Cedar Rapids and
Missouri River Railway companies in

located in Lyon, O'Brien, Dickinson,
Osceola, Emmet, Kossuth, Sioux, Plym
outh and Pocahontas counties, and ar
those which the railway companies
hae not entered at'd which are not for
feited aa suppose' L There are said
to be about 19,000 acre of
them. Many of tbe applicants bad
lain at tbe door of the land office all
night. Although 330 entries were made
they were all rejected, and it is doubt
ful if any claimable lands remains in
tha district. There wsa . much eaeltav
ment over tbe appearance of ' two men
who gave their names as Baker and
Haggett, from Nebraska, and who had
old applicants numbers, so that they
might get better chances at the land of
fice door. They had an office in tbe
Clapp block, and it is said swindled tbe
rural people out of about 1,!W0. They
were arrested. W. H. Clarke, register
of tbe Lincoln. Neb., land office, is in
the city and says the swindle is tbe
same kind of a game that is played fre
quently in Nebraska,

Washwotos, July 7. The new law
making examination s condition of pro
motion for army officer ha not met
tbe expectation of some officers who
figured on wholesale change by the
dropping of inefficient officers, bat war
department authorities express them
selves a highly pleased with tbe result
of tbe first six month experience.
(Since tbe law went into effect V7
officers in all have been examined. Of
these, fifteen failed physically and two
professionally. Quite a number had
s narrow escape in their professional
examinations, bnt in the majority of
caws the examination paper re
ceived at tbe . war depart
ment demonstrate a much
aigher order of merit than anticipated.
The narrow escape that some have bad
will not be without Its good effect, for
tbey will be doubtless prompted to
greater exertions in the future, and tbe
warning that tbe scope of the examina
tion is to be extended, is also having a
wholesome effect with those who passed
without any trouble.
According to letters received in Wash
ton from nearly every army post ofiiceri
nave taken to their books ana are mani
festing a keener interest in their every
day work than ever before. Tbis is just
the effect desired.and even though com
plaints are made that it has fot a great
deal of money in the way of mileage to
find out that only two officers were not
qualified for their professional dnties,
war department officials contend that
the resultant improvement in the way
of efficiency is worth all that has been

Tbe Beasoa of Admiral McCaan's Recall
,a Matter of Ibeeelatioa.
Washington, July; 7. Th purpose
of the navy department in ordering Ad
miral McCann from Chill to the United
States instead of returning him to tbe
command of tbe South Atlantic station
continues to be a matter of speculation.
There is no doubt that hi return baa
something to do with Chilian affairs.
No one suspect that nit administration
of affair in Chili has not been satis
factory, for he is one of the ablest offi
cers in the service. His views on Chil
ian affairs are evidently wanted, but
for just what purpose is uncertain. In
view of his early retirement it is con
sidered doubtful whether he will be
sent back to the South Atlantic station.
There is a strong impression that Rear
Admiral Brenham, recently detached
from Mare Island, will soon be ordered
to command the South Atlantic station.

of valor and heroism that our armies,
though vanquished, hay left them?"
Again Secretary Tracy nsed theae word:
"Mob law ha no excuse for existence

Grala la Fine Condition.
Chicago, July 7. Prime's weekly
crop report says: Tbe country now,
taking the crop outlook as a whole, has
experienced fourteen days of favorable
conditions which go to make np tbo
crop season. Tbere is no area of the
country today which is suffering for
wsnt of rain to any great extent. Th
weather has been generally cool, which
has been favorable for the filling of
small pain. The development W in
sect life has not for several years been
as small as at tbe present time.
The spring wheat crop as s
whole has not only held it own,
but has made rspid growth and the con
ditions are all favorable. The corn of
tbe country a a whole i hardly just
where it ought to be in growth. It baa
had a hard time in Nebraska, Kansas
and Missouri, particularly in the last
named state. The excessive rains of a
week ago not only damaged crops, bnt
gave the weeds a chance to grow. All
things considered corn has just about
held its own for the last fourteen days.
Tbe cold weather of last week ha been
good for oats, and while they have
headed ont short, they ought under
these conditions to fill well. No oats
will be fit to cut for two or three weeks
yet. The scarcity of oats, and also tbe
?;eneral scarcity of all kind of coarre

nature of oar government, its political
and social economy, and everything else
that pertains to make them thorough
After tbe speeches came organization.
Jacob Furtb, one of the prime mover
of the organization, said to a reporter:
"We expect to have a thousand mem

and I am glad to see that those who are
