No Right to Interfere.
Lincoln, July 21. Driven nlmost to
sJor:ponitlon by the many calls made
aipon him by alleged reform leagues,
clubs, societies and others who desire
executive interference with local ai
fairs Governor Mickey appealed to At
torney General Brown for an opinion
.as to just how far ho could go In such
-matters. Tho appeal that broke tho
-ramel's back came from Falls City,
-where there Is to be a street fair next
week. Members of the Women's
Christian Tomperanco union nnd oth
ers wrote tho governor asking him to
-compel tho ofllcers to enforce the law
siml they made out Falls City to be a
very wicked place Indeed. Mnyor
Leyda of Fulls City, however, said no
Suuday baseball had been played
here for a month and that all saloons
were closed on Sunday. Tho opinion
-of Attorney General Brown Is to tho
effect that tho governor hns no right
t,o interfere with local affairs and ho
can only remove those ofllcers whom
2io himself appoints.
SUORE LAND FENCERS ARE UP.
Jrive Nebraska Cattlemen Charged
With Illegally Enclosing Territory.

Arrest of the accused parties and
they will be taken before the United

vlctinn of tho Kruuso brothers of
.Sheridan county under the direction
of United States District Attorney
.Baxter and Special Assistant Attornoy
Hush by Special Land Agents De
.FreeB, Chambers and Dixon.
The appropriation of the public do
smnln by Reed and the Millers Is mate-a-ially
different from that of tho
.Krauses and tho Bartlett Richards
cases, from the fact that tho lands
iapproprlated by Reed and the Millers
i.s land not subject to entry and Is
nmrt of the land upon which the na
tional government Is making its for
est and timber growing experiments.
",rhe offense is consequently regarded
as more flagrant tlmi that of the
iirnuso brothers. Criminal proceed-
Ings nro to bo Instituted against tho
accused parties at once.

Is but the beginning of cases against

He entered tho hut and was In the

tant shot rang sharply through the air.
It was magnified tenfold by the In-
tense silence. Kor a few seconds, that
scorned to bo minutes, ho listened, cher
ishing the quick thought that perhaps

trained ear recognized as the lliing of
muzzle loaders, sounded the death knell
of his last hope.
The Dyaks had landed! Coming si
lently anil mysteriously in the i.uul ul!
night, they were themselves the vie
(ms of a stratagem they desi"iiod to
employ. Instead of taking the occu
pants of Rainbow Island unawares
they were startled at being greeted by
a shot the moment they landed. The
nlarmed savages at once retaliated by
firing their antiquated weapons point
blank at the trees, thus giving warning
enough to wake the seven sleeper.
Iris, fully dressed, was out In a mo
ment. "They have come!" she whispered.
"Yes," was the cheery answer, for
Jenks face to face with danger was a
very different man from Jenks wres
tling with the Insidious attacks of Cu
pid. "Up the ladder! Be lively! They
will not be hero for half an hour If they
kick up such u row at the first dilllcul

down those spare lines when you reach
tho top and haul away when I say
'Ready! You will find everything to
hand up there."
He held the bottom of tho ladder to
steady It for the girl's climb. Soon her
voice fell, like n message from a star:
"All right! Please Join me soon!"
The colled up ropes dropped along
the face of tho rock. Clothes, pick,
hatchet, hummer, crowbars and other
useful odds and ends were swung away
Into the darkness, for tho moon as yet
did not Illumine the crag. The sailor
darted Into Belle Vue castle and kicked
their leafy beds about tho floor. Then
ho slung all the rifles, now live In num
ber, over his shoulders and mounted
tbo rope ladder, which, with tbo spare
cords, he drew up and colled with

Tho especial characteristic of thu
Irish peasants, according to Frank
Mathew, in "Ireland," Is an old fash
ioned courtesy. They are all sure, ho
asserts, that they are descended from
chiefs, and their manners are ruled ac

many American adventurers. "One
