work of lescuing Anderson was resumed
The men worked as rapidly as thu circtim-
Htntictt would permit In lemoving the diit
from abo\o him. This hud to bo done with
tlio utmost caution , as the displacement of
ono boaid or the giving waj of anj part of
the cuitli In which thoeuiblng icsts Is liable
to cause the whole strut turo to collapse anil
prccipitato Anderson to the bottom , a hun
dred feet below. About all that is covering
him now arc the boiiids of the old curbing ,
that have formed Into something of a roof
and to get to him a hole must bo cut through
this. It will be aeiy dangerous task , as
the cuiblng and n largo quantity of sand from
the sides in o resting on these boauls. An
effort was m.ulo to saw the boards , but after
cutting one board the cnrhimr sank a few
Inches and considerable sand caved in. Ad-
del son asked for tools and mateiiul and lias
been working most of the daas much us
his strength would pci mil making the curb

I 'ood and water have been gUen him regu-
laily and ho is much stionger to dai. Work
has been suspended until daylight , when the
boards will bo cut again , and if Anderson's
curbing and bracing stand the test his
chances are good of getting out alive.

Mi.ilson invited Teller to paiticulailro

a statement tlio eoireetness of which ho
denied. Ho asked him lo state ono single instance -

Mi. Teller said ho could not bo expected ,
after a speech ot two houis , to go over it

Mr. Wilson "Tho Ron.itor ought not to
make such a chaigo unless ho is prep.ued to
maintain it. "
Mr. Teller "Tho senator has taken the
oxtieme Canadian sido. "
Mr. Wilson ' ! have not. I have taken
the side which my judgment told

examination of the question , my prejudices
wcio all against it , and I doubted whether I
could vote for it. But the conclusions lo

is that no fling against me1 , as having as
sumed tlio side of the enemy , will ever in

Ho has not winked himself into the belief

had not been carried Into the republican
caucus and voted upon , and whether it had
not there been determined that thu tieati
should bo opposed by the whole lepubllcan

lowed to it.
Mr. Teller replied tbat no republican cau

whether icpubllcunstshould vote for it 01
not There never had been a lepublie-an
senator in favor of itlaud would

paper , and ho said : "That Illustrates clearly
sonio of tlio injustices done by tlio tongue and
pi ess. Atou.\ ago my son went to
Montana with aory few thousand dollars
and engaged In the ealtlo business Ho was
able to buy but a small herd ,
and as It did not icqniio ' all
of his attention ho was inked to i
look after another small held , belonging to

do not think that all of the eattlo ho had

the eattlo business ended. I was nuvor on
