about 300 citizens of Lincoln county, I
r uau not tne least semblance of the
ordinary mob. Their every act waa
deliberate and during all th prep
aratloue as welj as throughout the
sufferings of -the negro hardly an un
necessary word was spoken. Grimly
-they etcod in a circle about the fire
until the body was eatinrely consumed
and then quietly they took their way
back to Liinon. from, whence they de
parted for their homes shortly after-
Prestou Porter did not fceem to re-
t alize the awful, punishment that he
was destined to undergo. As he had
tUiJiibited indifference to the enormity
of his crime, so he seemed to lack an
' understanding of Its terrible conse
quences. ' . For more than an hour while
preparations for his execution were In
progress he stood mute and sullen,
among the avengers. When every-
thing was ready he walked to the
stake with a firm step, pausing as he
reached the circle of broken board?
to kneel in prayer. He was allowed
to take his hime. Ke. arose and placed
his back to the ircn stake, and half a
dozen men wound chains about his
. body and limbs.
Kerosene oil was applied to thj
'. ;wood. and after a brief pause Rich
ard "W. Frost, the father of little
m Iiuise Frost, whose cruelly mutil
ated body was found one week ago on
that very spot, applied a match. For
a moment but a little flickering flame
arose. Then the oil blazed up. sparks
. flew into the air and the wood began
( . to crackle. Almost instantly the ne-
ro's trousers caught fire. Erea
though the flesh must have been
frched he aW aot utter a sound.
The flames crept slowly upward on his
doming, me sparks flew

ciouu oc pale smoke. Porter turned.
nieneaa and a frightful expression
changed his face. With, a sudden con
vulsive tugging he stretched his head
ap far from the rapid'y increasing
flames as possible and uttered a crv of
pain. -Oh, my God. let me go. men.
Iv gat something more to tell vou.
Pleaae let me go. Oh. mv God 'av
God." ' -
In terrible screeches these words
: the first he had uttered aloud, came
from the negro. A terrible tugging
at the chains, a succession of awful
groans and screams., rhe negro's awful
oiiy was at last breaking down his
sullen composure. Not an oath es
caped hiin. but he begged and pleaded
to be shot. Suddenly the rope hord-
sng his .handa burned through. Then
the arms, head and shoulders slipped
tarough the caains. For an insta
. the body stood erect, the arms were
raised in supplication while burning
pieces of clothing dropped from them.

WASHINGTON,. Nov. 16. Steps
have bees takem for resuming the im
portant work, of the Anglo-Amerkan.
committee made up of representatives
of the United. States, Great Britain
and Canada and consideration, or the
subject now la progress probably will
determine within, a. few. days what
coarse will be pursued. Corresp&nd
eace has passed, recently between. Ot-
Ltawa and WTaaliiTigJ-nn rolatrrt- m T9-
suming tae work and sow tnat tne
elections em both sides of the border
are over there- is felt to he mare, time
and opportunity to devote to the seri
ous questions involved before this
commission. It is understood thai the
American eommmissioners desire to
remove the possibility of such inef
fectual results as occurred at their
last sitting. The indications are that
this will be done through the co-operation
of the State department, by omit
ting the ATiisiran boundary question
from, those to be considered,, thus re
moving the chief obstacle to progress..
On the Alaska commission the com
mission, was practically deadlocked
and. it made no report on the. progress
as to other questions because of in
ability to include this question. Since
then, however, a modus vivendi on
Alaska has been agreed upon, -ami:
while this lacks permanency it is fext
that the question can be beat left to
direct negotiations between the two
governments, thus permitting the com
mission to proceed with the many:
other important questions involved.
What arrangement " be made in
this particular will depend upon the
conferences now going onv The pur
pose cf the commission is to frame a
new treaty between the United. States
and Great Britain., covering; the vari
ous questions arising along the Can
adian border, and thus disposing of s.
wide range of controversy.
The questions before- the commis
sion are of long, standing and include
the establishment of the boundary be
tween Alaska and British Columbiar
the issues over Bering- sea and tne
catch of fur- seals r the unmarked,
boundary between. Canada, and" the
Cnited States, near Pasamaquoddy
bay in Maine and at points between
Wisconsin and Minnesota and Canada:
the northeast fisheries question, in
volving the rights of fishing in the
North. Atlantic off Newfoundland an.I
other points r the regulation of the
fishing rights an. the great lakes;: alien,
labor Immigration across the Canadian-American
reciprocity between the two countries t
the regulation of the bonding- system,
by which goods are carried in" bond
across the frontier and. also the regu
lation of traffic by international rail
ways and canals of the two countries;
reciprocal minings privileges in the
Klondike, British North America- and
other points; wrecking and salvage on
the ocean and great lakes in. coasting
waters, and' the modification of the
treaty arrangement by which only one
war vessel can be maintained on, the
great lakes, with a view to allowing
warships to be built on the lakes and
then floated out to the ocean.

ROME, Nov. 16. A rumor is cur
rent in. Rome that the illness of the
czar is dug to poisoning, and it Is as
serted that cipher telegrams have
been received at the Vatican saying
that an attempt was made to poison
both, the emperor and. empress but
that the latter was not affectedjThis
story, however, a not . beHeveifc
King Vieter Bmatmel "Telegraphed
for definite information and got a
quick reply that the czar was as well
as could be expected.
LONDON, Nov. 16. The impression
exists in most European capitals .that
the illness of Emperor Nicholas is
more serious than it is reported to be
but this is probably based' upon
knowledge that the czar's constitution
is not strong; and is little likely to
resist a serious attack.
In Copenhagen the illness is attrib
uted to overwork, in connection with
the Chinese crisis, and ther is also
a suspicion that the liygienic condi
tions and water supply at Lividia. mav
be faulty. "

Appeal fram Texas Grand Arair-
LINCOLN, Neb.. Nov. 14. The Tal
lowing letter from Commander Peck ot
the Department of Texas, Grand Army
of the Republic, relative to theaid for
the Galveston sufferers is being sent
to Nebraska pests by the State depart
ment; HOUSTON, Tex., Nor. li The ap
palling calamity which has befallen.
!he comrades of this department re
siding at Galvestcnland vicinity makes
it a sacred duty of the department of- j
Seers to make an effort in their behalf
to obtain funds to alleviate their suf
fering and in a small measure restore
them to that condition which will en
able them to earn a living for those
depending on them and support them
selves. The Department of Texas Is
doing all in its power, but 5nda itself
weak numerically and financially to ac
complish, what should be done, it
therefore has bsen suggested that an
appeal be made to the comrades of the
Grand Army of the Republic in their
organized capacities to contribute such,
relief as they may be- able to spara
from, their means to aid this depart
ment in the performances of the duty
which it owes these comrades. If thera
ever was an. occasion for the practical
exemplification of' charity it has come
to us with fearful consequences. We
therefore appeal to all the departments
and posts of our beloved' order for such
voluntary contributions as they may oe
able to make and to request that they
be remitted to Colonel K. G. Rust; as
sistant quartermaster general of this
department, who will be required to
keep a strict account of all receipts.
The department commander will be.
required to make an account of all con
tributions and outlays to the next na
tional encampment of the Grand Army
of the Republic
All cash relief will be by check of
the department commander, authorized"
by the advisory committee. Supplies
will- be distributed largely through, and
in connection with like relief by .he

WASHINGTON, Nov. 1-L In addi
tion to the points said to be agreed
upon at renin, as a bisis far settlement
with China, as announced in cae dis
patches, it is understood that several
other points are likely to receive at
tention when the matter is taken up
withthe Chinese envoys. One of these
is as to mafring the city of Pekin an
"open port," far while it is not on tne
ijeaccast. the purport Is ta extend ta
it that freedom of commerce and inter
course with foreigners which now ap
plies duly to those open ports designat
ed by treaties with. China. The sug
gestion that tius action be taken nas
been made in high. Chinese quarters
and its advisability is- urged because
Pekin, as the capital ot the Chinese
empire, is the center of influenie
throughout tne country.
Another point whick may be pro
posed is that capital punishment, by
beheading or otherwise, shall not oc
cur in. future by Imperial edict alone,
but only after a trial such as ia given
in civilized countries, the accused hav
ing an opportunity to be heard. Thi3
does not apply to the executions madft
necessary by the Boxer movement.
Dispatches have been received here
from the viceroys of the southern
provinces- of China, which thus far
have been more friendly to- foreigners,
stating that they ware shocked oy the
execution of the acting viceroy of Chi
Li and also-that they feared this woald
have a serious effect in those localities
hitherto favorably disposed.
TOPEKA, i&au., Nov. 14. The con

to succeed Hon. Laden Baker, whose
term expires next March, was begun
here in earnest today, when the adhe

Charles I. Burton is Baker's most
formidable opponent. Governor W. E.
Stanley, who has just been, re-elected,
simplified the situation somewhat when
he declared positively today that he
waa not a candidate.
