hotel , which opens out. from the west side
of the building , in theseeeiml story , lie
was horror struck at what ho saw. There ,
with every lineament plainly discornlhle
by the rays of the rising sun , was the :
figure of a man , whoso appearance tine

against tlio window , lifeless , ills feat

already ussumed that horrible classy ap

again , to bo sure that his eyes were nol
deceiving him. The liguruwas there and
it eliel not move. "Lei mo sec , " ho mut

to the spectre , whoso outlines wcro plain

Poiroiict's lirst imprissions being thin
contlrnied , ho eleturniined to lose no time
in reporting the. matter to the people n
the ; hotel. "He hurried over to the Mer

other anel short-range look at the done
man. This time ho coulel see the corpse
more plainly than over , anel he hurried t
inform the night clerk of what Me liae
discovered. The latter was shocked
mill at once agreed that an inves igatioi
of the matter ought to bo maelo immedi
atoly. Ho leel the way up to the room
No.'iW , where the dead man lay. Thej
knocked at the door. There was no an

"It's " the clerk he

clambered upon Pioronct's broad should

Then he iumpeel down , with a convulsive
burst of laughter. Hu could not at lirst
re-ply to Peironot's astonished emery.
"What are you laughing at ? " Finally ,
however , when his emotions hail some
what subsided , ho managed to ejaculate ,
"Why , it's only a painting. "
It was only too true. Tlio occupant ol
the room was Mr. Chas. He.yd , an artisl
from Milwaukeewho has been in Omaha
for the past weiek. For tlio last few elay-
Mr. Ilo.yd has been engaged in painting
a life-sized , full-length portrait of n

A Suit Caused by u Widow IJlBrcjarel-

E/okiel Giles filed in the United State ?
clislric-tcourtyesterday a bill of complaint
against Pester Lancto , Josephine St.
Louis Lanclo and II. J. Whitemoro. The
suit is brought to regain possession of
some valuable property iu the city of
In 1809 the petition of the plaintiff ,
Giles alleges , Jacob Uawson , a resident
of Lincoln , dieel , leaving behinel him a
widow and several children. His estate
included , among other things , the prop
erty in Lincoln over which the contest
exists. He made it ono of the provisions
of his will that his wife should retain pos
session of this property so long as she re
mained single. For ten years
shu diel remain unmarried , but
in 1870 , the temptation to return to the
"blessed estate" proved too strong. Put
ting aside her weeds , she married a man
by the name of Pickering. The property
thus rovorteel to her children , all but two
of whom had elied. These two united in
a deed transfer ! ing the property to
Messrs. L. C. Hnrr and II. II. Wheeler ,
of Lincoln , who in turn transfeirreel it to
E/.ckiol Giles , tlio plaintiff. In the mean
time , Mrs. Pickering the fromor wife of
Dawson took it upon herself to soil the
properly to Peter Lanoto and his wife ,
Josephine St. Louis Lancto , on a war
rantee eleed. It is against these parties
that Giles lias commenced tho.suit , to
set asielo their claim upon the property ,
on the ground of illegality. Whitomoro
is included in the suit because ho bought
up and transferred to Laycto a sort of
tax title to the in-ouorty in question.

Chicago Herald : Tlio Boston papers
are publishing copious biographies e > f
that remarkable Aludoc Indian. "Steam
boat Frank , " who elied the other elay at
Decring , Mo. , where ho was attending a
Quaker school , umlor the patronage of
the Friends , who hael taken an interest
in the Modoos at the time they were sent
from the lava heels to the Indian tcrri- ,
tory. One ot these papers speaks of Frank
as the second chief of the Moelocs , Bogus
Charley being the lirst , anel goes into a
kind of Concorel school hysterics over
Steamboat Frank's ' wonderful abilities ,
his hcar-covercel body , his savage nature
subdued and Christianized by the in
fluences that the Quakers brought to bear
upon him. " 1 know 'Steamboat
Frank,1" observed a gentleman the
other day , "long before the Quakers elid. I
fear the Quakers have got unduly worked
up over their young apostle. I was all
through the Modoo war. Frank was not
a Modoc chief , but simply a young buck
who for several years before the war liveel
with a remnant of his tribe at a place
called Steamboat Springs , about forty
miles from the lava beds. From that cir
cumstance ho was called 'Steamboat
Frank'a name given him by the whites
in the vicinity. Ho was not a warrior ,
nor indeed a tmvugo , save that he was an
Indian. Ho was a mild-mannered boy.
and could speak frontier English as well
as anoboely. Ho had worked for tiio white
cattlemen , had ridden a mail pony to and
from Yreka , California , and was three-
fourths civilized before the Modoo war
broke out. When Captain Jack , whp was
the chief of the Alodocs , precipitated
the war ho called in the scattered
villages , ami , among them , that to
which Bogus Charlie and Steam
boat Frank' belonged. Frank did not
go into the lava boils for several months
after the war began. Even then ho did
not do much lighting. Ho and Bogus
Charlie wore chielly employed by Cap
tain Jack to decoy the Canby peace com
mission into the trap the savage had laid
for them. Neither of the boys know ,
however , what was the real secret of
tlioir various missions between the lava
heels and the military camp , though Bo
gus Charlie diel find it out thrco days before -
fore the massacre , and warned Genoial
Canby to beware of treachery. Steamboat
Frank was simply a bright Indian boy ,
who was quite harmless , though , \s full of
mischief as an egg is full of meat. I was
iu Captain Jack's camp once , about thrco
weeks before them assacro. There were-

camp , forty miles awayI hey worn armed
to the teeth with rilles and cartridge
belts taken from our duael soldiers in pre
vious lights. The Indians wore not ma-
licious.mit tlieiy wera full of half-savage
doveltry , which would prompt thorn to
annoy the unarmed whites in every way.
I remember once my EiJdlo turned and 1
had to dismount to hx it. The rest of the
party had got perhaps-half a milo ahead ,
and had broken into at gallop for camp ,
us the sun was setting ! Hooka Jim and
Steamboat Frank saw tlio mishap and
dropped behind , as 1 supposed , to keep
me company. I hail no sooner mounted
and put the sturdy army gray into a
strong gallop , than those young
devils began to whoop and yell. Frank ,
with his pony , ran deliberately into my
horse , and Jim fired several shots directly
across his cars , pretending that ho wus
shooting at a rabbit on tlio other side ol
the trail. Then , seeing that I was
uneasy , ILcr would howl with laughter.
They Kept it up lor a milo or so , and had
a great deal of fun. That night m camii

KING KALAKAUA HARD UP.
The Story ef a European fjoan of Ten
Millions : nel Its Prohablo Origin.
The varn telegraphed from San Fr an-
ci = co that an unnam eel syndicate of
European c ap italis-ts is ready to loan tlio
governme nt of the Hawaiian Islands
$10.000,000 , with the expectation that they
will obtain possession of the Islands , is
obviously a renewal of one of the familiar
reports put in circulation in the United
States whenever this one-sided treaty is
threatened with extinction by notice of
itsterinination by our government.
The question of terminating the treaty
under the provisions of which the United
States is subsidizing the Hawaiian sugar
and rice planters to the extent of1,000 , , -
000 per year , is now pending in congress ,
with a lair prospect that the notice of the
desire of the Unitcel Slates government
to terminate the treaty will bo approved
by both the senate and the house. As the
recipients of the United Slates subsidy
in the islands , and their allies and lobby
ists in San Francisco and Washington ,
are forced to confess that the financial
advantages and benefits of the treaty are
wholly enjoyed by the planters of the
islands and a combination of sugar re
finers in San Francisco , who arc also
largo owners of plantations in the islands ,
thov are driven to.a revival of the well-
Worn fiction that the termination of our
treaty of 1870 will be followed by a
treaty with some European power , or , as
it is now reported , some European syn
dicate , which will practically carry with
it the possession ot the islands to the in
jury of the trade and influence of the
Tue emptiness of the threat has Dcon
frequently exposed. Citizens of the
United States , barring tlio clique of San
Francisco refiners who monopolize the
trade with Hie islands , can all'ord to dis
pense with a traelo which , so far as our ex
ports are concerned , amounts to less
than the sugar duties remitted by the
treasury under the provisions of the
treaty of 1870. The people of the islands
cannot do without the markets of Cali
fornia and Oregon for tlioir sugars anel
rice , as thn freight charge for transport
ing tlio same to Europe or the eastern
ports of the United States would bo quite
three times larger than tlio freight charge
from the islanels to San Francisco.
Neither can they obtain the bulky and in
many cases perishable- supplies which
tlioyobtaiii | from San Francisco as cheaply
The importation of merchandise from
Europe into the islands has largely in
creased by tlio increased purchasing
power enjoyed by the planters since the
reciprocity treaty , with its large annual
subsidies in the shape of remitted elutios ,
wont into ollect. The treaty has utterly
failed to elivert any part of the European
trade of the islands to the Unitoel States ,
at was promised by the Hawaiian
negotiators. Not only have those
promises been elolusivo , but several mill
ions of the munificent ilomition of $ ' 2i- ! ,
000.000 to tlio island planters by the
United States have gone to enrich the
manufacturers of sugar machinery in
Great Britain anel Germany ami pay for
the slik and wines imported into the
islands from Franco.
King Kahikaua's dcsiro to obtain a loan
of .f'J.OOO.OOO . . or $10,000,000. , ostensibly for
the purpose of fortifying the approaches
to Honolulu , is an olel story , and , as ho
now has a complaisant ministry , which
is not in accord with the reputable
American residents of the kingdom , and
whoso members have nothing to lose but
the profits e > f their ollicos , from which
tlioy can bo dismissed at the King's
pleasure , it is not at all improbable that
they are ready to do his bidding and force
a loan bill through the legislature ; but
there tlio scheme would end. Iho
Hawaiian government lias no security to
oiler for a loan of one-third of f 10,000,000. ,
The planters are to a man opposed to a
The government and crown lanels that
are fit for cultivation are either sold or
leased , the revenues from the latter being
the personal property of the king , who.
despite his income , equal to the salary of
the president of the Unitcel States , is a
frequent borrower ol sums that fall very
far short of millions.
That tlio agent for Portuguese emigra
tion to tlio islands should help to circu

and eager to loan ? 10,000,000 , to King
Kalukauti , in event of the reciprocity

San Francisco Alta : In Arizona irri
gation is aiding the rapid development of
the territory anel demonstrating its pro
ductiveness. Outside of a few elevated
valleys in the northern part of the state ,
irrigation is everywhere essential to cul
tivation. Small grain requires to bo
Hooded from two to four times during
the season. Fruit and grass need less
water. The Arizona canal is over forty
miles long , has a capacity of 40.000 inches
of water , cost over $ 103,000 and irrigates
100,000 acres of land. In the Salt river
valley there are ten canals with a united
capacity of 00,000 inehea. In tlio valley
of the Gila a number of canals have been
constructed. These enterprises are
owned by incorporated companies , each
share representing a quantity of water
sulliencicnt to irrigate KiO acres , anel
worth from $100 to )00. A number of
other canals are now in progress on the
lower Gila , which will irrigate over
200,000 acres. A natural question arises
reigarding the future of Arizona farming
under these conditions. Water is an ab
solute necessity to cultivation. It is now
being appropnateel by incorporated com
panies to the great present advantage of
the region all'ecteel ; but what will the
situation bo whim immigration , stimu
lated by the inducements held out , shall
have taken up the land in Kiimll tracts ,
while the water is owned by a number of
great companies ? Prudence suggests
that the citizens ot a territory so entirely
elcpcndcnt upon artificial water supply
should take early measures to prevent
the absorption of that supply by a few
persons or corporations , . ( v monopoly of
water in Arizona carries with it a practi
cal ami absolute monopoly of land.
