BLACK HORN WAS UGLY.
With a Yukliim Indian Ho Tried to Mar'
der a 1'ollceman.
PENDLETON , Ore. , June 17 Half
a dozen well mounted Umatilla In
dians are scouring the Blue mountains
to capture Black Horn of the Umatilla
reservation and a Yakima Indian who
last night tried to murder Brisbow ,
chief of the Indian police. The lat
ter , about midnight , was attempting
to arrest Black Horn and the Yakima
Indian for being drunk and disord'er-
ly , when Black Horn drew a pistol
and the Yakima Indian a dirk. They
rushed on Brisbow , who fired three
times without effect. The Yakima In
dian ran behind and struck Urisbow
in the back of the head , knocking
him insensible. Parr , another Indian ,
fired twice , but failed of his mark.
Jack , also a policeman , started up
a fusillade with no better results.
Black Horn and the Yakima then
sprang on their horses and left for
the Blue mountains. Black Horn ,
two years ago , was accused of mur
dering Wip Sha and afterwards plac
ing his body on the railroad tracks.
JAPAN THE ONLY HITCH.
Cannot Borrow Money at 4 Per Cent for
PEKIN , June 17. The foreign min
isters say that although yesterday's
meeting did not result in the settle
ment of matters , still things are work
ing most satisfactorily toward a con
clusion and that the amount of the
indemnity and the 4 per cent rate of
li-terest were almost agree upon , the
[ nly hitch being with regard to Jap-
[ "n , which country cannot borrow
money under 5 per cent. It is the de-
: . ; re of most of the ministers to ar-
lange this satisfactorily , as it is felt
that Japan deserves special consider
ation. The probability is that addi
tional bonds will be given sufficient to
: over the loss.

LINCOLN , Neb. , June 15. With an
increasing demand and a decreasing
supply the school land that will be
offered for lease at public auction in

turns to the state than ever before in
recent years. Inquiry for this land
has been very general from all sec
tions of the state during the last two
weeks. Land Commissioner Follmer
will start on an auction tour about
August 20 , and it is probable that his
first tour will extend mostly through
Lhe northwestern section.
"You'd be surprised at the demand
"or school land , " said Deputy Com
missioner Eaton. "Every mail brings
ir some inquiry. Some persons want
tarm land and others want land for

greatest for land for grazing purposes

OF YELLOWSTONE PARK.
* o Other Region In the World Abounds-
In Such n Variety of Attractions.
The most wonderful scenery in the
; vorld is in Yellowstone National Park ,
: he great natural curiosity shop of the
miverse. Nowhere else , within equal
) ounds , are found so many natural
venders grouped , almost as if by de-
iign , for the special convenience of
ilght-seers. The wonders of the Alps ,
ind the Himalayas , could they be gath-
sred together and compressed into an
iqual space , could not hope to rival In
; randeur , in variety nor in number ,
he attractions of the Yellowstone.
.Vere . all the attractions except the
jeysers removed , the region would
till be famed world wide drawing
lature lovers from all countries to-
witness the exhibitions ot unequalled
lower of these matchless giants ,
vhich , with a roar that may be heard
eng distances , spout huge columns of
eething water high into the air , sus-
aining them there for varying lengths
if time. Old Faithful , with a regular-
ty that begot its name , at intervals of
5 to 75 minutes , sends up a huge col-
imn of water 150 feet into the air , re-
aaining active for four minutes. Giant ,
i-ith a deafening roar , spouts 250 feet
very third day for 90 minutes , while
riantess , at longer intervals and with
lightly less power , maintains activity
or twelve hours at a stretch. Many
thers , at intervals ranging from five-
ainutes to several days , spout water
o varying heights , remaining active
Dr periods ranging from one second to
n hour or more. In all , there are
tiirty-three members of this inter-
sting Geyser family of sufficient
uportance to deserve special mention ,
'wenty-eight of these are in Upper
asin , and when several of them , with
heir rainbow tints , spouting at
nee , the scene fs indescrioable. Other
cenes of grandeur that abound in fa-
ored mountainous regions pass In.
adless review before the enchanted
jurist , all sense of fleeting- time being-
) st in their admiration.
Travel to the park , following Im-
roved transportation facilities , has.
reatly increased in recent years ,
saving the Oregon Short Line at
[ onlda , Montana , after a pleasant
.de through changing scenes from
alt Lake City , comfortable stage
caches run to and through the park ,
taking the trip at easy stages in five
ays , four of which are spent among
ature's wonders , and the other among
slightful scenery. Good hotels are
mveniently located in the park for
ght-seers , where one may stay indefi-
itely , at very reasonable cost.
