After two days' preliminary bearing In
police court the case against George Archi
bald , the- driver for the Pacific Express
company , who Is accused of having robbed
a wagon safe of a package containing $3,000 ,
was concluded yesterday afternoon. What
the decision of Judge Gordon will be Is In

afternoon at 3 o'clock.
The state's witnesses yesterday were ;
Frank M. Clark paying teller of the First
National bank , and Wllllard Chambers , as
sistant teller of the same bank ; Michael
O'Toofe , money orde rclerk of the express
company ; H. Howes , Junior member of

Captain Haze who " "
, "sweated" Archibald
shortly after hla arrest , and who was looked
upon ns being one of the state's best wit
nesses , was a disappointment. Although
he had three talks with Archibald , he was
unable to get out of the accused other than
the simple narration of the facts as stated
In The Bee at the time of the robbery. Ho
admitted that ho held out the Inducement
to Archibald of clemency If he would (11-
vulgo the hiding place of the money and
make a confession. This had no effect on
Archibald , who stuck to his original story ,
with the exception that ho told the cap
tain that there were two men at the east
end of the alley when ho drove Into It. This
Is the only contradiction ho made of his
original story. To others , among them
Agent Huntoon of the express company ,
Archibald bad said there was no one In the
alley when ho drove Into It.
Agent Huntoon , who was examined , simply
told of Archibald reporting the robbery to
him , which was In substance the same as
ho reported to Captain Haze. Mr. Huntoon
testified that ho had cautioned Archibald
never to allow himself out of sight of his
wagon. Ho said bo cautioned him only a
week before the robbery. He said he was
particular In cautioning Archibald , as he
was careless. Archibald was the employe ,
he said , who handled first the $5,000 package
which was stolen three years ago.
His neglect In taking a receipt for It , he
Bald , aided materially In the successful theft
of It. When asked If ho was doubtful of
Archibald's honesty Mr. Huntoon refused to
answer the question.

Michael Bird , who lives across the alley
from Strolght & Howo's
store , testified as
to having found the two packages of way
bills In the weeds near the alley and at a
point near where the lobbery had been
committed. These packages were shown
lilm and he Identified them. Mr. Strelght
of the firm of Strclght & Howe also
identified the packages as the ones that
were turned over to him for safe keeping
and which ho In turn delivered to the
express company. These packages were
found on the afternoon of the day ot the
Michael Morrison , A. Shipwright and J.
Wermouth , employes of the South Omaha
Ice and Coal company , who drove Info the
alley shortly after Archibald did and un
loaded a quantity ot Ice at the rear door of
Ferron & Cooper's place , testified to that
fact. Shipwright was positive that there
was no one In or about the express wagon.
The other did not know as to this fact ; as
they had paid no attention to the wagon.
They wore engaged nt their work for nearly
The state tried Va show by them that the
express wagon was allowed to remain In
its position during nil that time and that
the driver did not make his appearance ,
but It could not , as the men said they paid
no attention to the outfit after they began
work. According to Archibald's story , he
saw no Ice wagon or any other character
of vehicle In the alley , consequently , the
men who had consumed from fifteen to
twenty minutes In their work had finished
nnd drove away before ho put In his ap
pearance at his wagon. In his statement
he eald Chat at no time was ho absent from
his wagon over eight minutes.
The testimony of Manager Stebblns of
the express company was simply a verifica
tion of the story told by Archibald to Agent
Huntoon at the time of the robbery , which
tins been published. He also told what
Archibald's duties ns a driver were.
Fourteen witnesses were Introduced by
the sfate and none by the defense. T. J.
Mahoney and Attorney McCold of Mount
Pleasant , la. , employed by defendant's
brother , made arguments based on the
view they took of the case. County Attorney
Herring spoke briefly , allowing his associ
ate , Attorney Morsman , most of the time

"Cherokee 1III1V AntonUlilncr Vent *
wllU IH nine.
In the second troop of rough riders , mus
tered out at Montauk Point , a picturesque
and notable character was "Cherokee Bill , "
who , as his name Indicates , halls from the
Indian territory , nnd betonga to the once
powerful ttlbe of redskin warriors. Were It
not for his high check bones and bronze
complexion he would pass muster for a tall
and muscular New Englandcr. But the In
dian origin of Cherokee Bill Is unmistak
Like all Indians , relates the Washington
Post , Bill rides his horse as though he and
the animal were one , and his skill with rifle
and revolver Is a constant source of wonder
and delight to his comrades. His feats In
marksmanship are the. talk ot the regiment.
Any ot his comrades are wining to hold a
silver dollar for Bill to shoot from their fin
gers , or hold pipes In their mouths for him
to shatter with a bullet. With his horse at
a gallop , and hanging on with one knee and
a hand , he can hit a small target at 100 feet )
two out of three times with his revolver.
One day some members of his company
were firing at a watermelon in a Held at 100
yards , and manifesting pleasure when they
hit It , which they did about every otihcr
time. Cherokee Bill joined the group , and ,
after looking contemptuously at the shooting
for some time , said : "This is what you want
to do , " and , firing his rifle , he cut the seem
almost completely off.
Bill has taught his horse all the ordinary
tricks that cavalrymen employ , and many
others , which remind one of the wonderful
performances of the western Sioux. He
makes the animal Ho down and become a
pillow for him white be pretends to sleep ,
and then tells him to go on guard while he
remains sleeping. The horse walks off fifty
or 100 feet and plays the part of sentry to
perfection. Bill breaks a stick In order to
produce the noise made by an enemy creepIng -
Ing upon a man's trail , and the horse returns
Immediately and paws his master gently
until ho Is wide awake.
While the regiment was In camp at Tampa ,
Fla. , ono of the most picturesque sights waste
to sea Cherokee Bill and his horse In
swimming together. The dark copper color
of the man's body made him seem of the
same hue as his steed. They swam together ,
and even played together In the water , and
not until the animal was thoroughly tired
did It manifest any desire to return to the
At Fernandlna as well as Tampa Cherokee
Bill taught his comrades many queer
Indian tricks , thereby furnishing any
amount of amusement for the soldiers of
other regiments. On ono occasion he had
them all creeping upon a foe , In which
every one of the party lay flat upon his
face and wriggled worm-like along the
ground. Their dark uniforms , which they
wore at the time , the Cuban uniforms not
having been furnished , made little contrast
with the earth , grass and bushes around ,
and a person at 100 yards would never have
dreamed that a body of resolute men were
stealing silently along.
To the spectators It occurred that had
Cherokee Bill been a. member of the troop
that was cut up so badly , the story of the
fight In which Hamilton Fish lost his Ufa
would have been told differently. Instead of
marching carelessly , with much laughter
and conversation , right Into a death trap ,
they would have gone forward with Indian
cunning and carefulness , to stumble on the
ambushed Spaniards and stalk the stalker.
What could not a regiment of Cherokee
Bills , with their unerring rlflo and silent
marching through the bush , accomplish In
a campaign such as that In Cuba ? This
question the soldiers who saw Bill playing
the schoolmaster with his comrades asked
each other again and again.

appropriate place from some points of view ,
as the Institute In sending this display has
made prominent the work of Its mining and
metallurgy departments , and yet I doubt
not the educational bureau and exhibitors ,

chosen other locations than the galleries

exposition of 1900 gives the place of hcnor
to education , and It Is stated In the advance

expositions servo as models for the smaller
ones that are held for years afterward , and
It Is likely that the next century will see
better treatment ot education than It has
had In the past. There has been no dispo
sition to slight the claims of the educa
tional material , for the authorities ot the
past expositions have been as liberal as It
seemed to them wlso to be. Nevertheless ,
agriculture , machinery , electricity , manu
factures nnd the fine arts have had prece
dence , and education has received what was
left after the demands of these classes were
satisfied. It Is a matter of relative values ,
and the announcements from Paris Indicate
a new relative value to be placed on educa

and hence reports in regard to the work of
certain departments to the United States
commissioner of education. In addition to
these two displays students and friends
Justly point with the greatest pride to the
architectural effects of the exposition as
typical of the high standards and far-
rcachlng Influence of the school. In a late
article on "Architecture In America" this
statement Is made : "To Eugene Letang ,
professor of design In the Massachusetts
Institute of Technology , from Its beginning
to the time of his death ( four years ago ) ,
more than to any other man Is due the
architectural Improvement so apparent In
America In the last decade. "
Messrs. Walker and Kimball , the archi
tects In chief , to whom was Intrusted the
general scheme of the architectural composi
tion , are both "Tech men" and Mr. Walker
Is now professor of decoration there. E. A.
Crane , the architect ot the Government
building ; Mebsrs. Eames and Young , who
designed the Fine Arts building ; D. H.
Perkins and C. J. Belndorff , architects of
the Machinery and Horticulture buildings ,
respectively , are all students of the In.itl- .
tule , as was also J , J. Humphreys , who
designed the Mining building and whose
untimely death to recently occurred In Den
ver. By the way , It may be of Interest
to note that the original architectural plan
contemplated color effects. This scheme
was not carried out because of the extra
expense Involved. While the average ob
server would certainly make no criticism
on the beauty of the White City , no doubt
the architects felt keenly the departure
from their original plona. The department
of architecture le well represented In the
Mines gallery. There are several views
and plans elaborately worked out inater
colors. A palatial villa by the sea by Er
nest Herman Schroeder reminds one , with
its towering mountains fading away In the
distance , of an old feudal castle. The front
view of a grand opera house shows In detail
artistic columns , doorways , windows and
groups of fctatuary. This Is the work ot
H. P. Richmond , who also contributes a
design for a pantheon. Allen H. Cox sends
a design for a grand staircase.
Little acual work is sent from other de
partments , but photographs arranged on the
walls. In wing cases and albums , show not
only the complete equipment of laboratories
and libraries , ' but something of the work of
students as well , both In theoretical and
practical lines. There are several portray
ing lecture classes , while othets clvo an
Idea of the scientific and mechanical labora
tory work. For Instance , a view of the
"John Cumralngs Laboratory" of mining ,
engineering and metallurgy has underneath
a key duplicating the numbers on the chart.
As these run from one to ninety It will
bo seen how minutely the plan U worked
out and how complete the information as
to its equipment.
Quito as comprehensive knowledge Is ob
tained from the views of the biological elec
trical , chemical electrical and other de
partments , while the photographs of the
mechanical laboratories show students at
work in machine , pattern-making , black
smith and carpenter shops.
The aim of the Institute to combine the
oretical with practical teaching Is thus
stated : "The foundation of all sound tech
nological education requires not only the
oretical training , but also prolonged , well
directed laboratory drill , which shall first
give the student the power of close and
accurate observation and then brine him
Into direct contact with the material problems
blems of bis future profession. " In the de
partment of electrical engineering alone last
year , besides the Instruction given by the
faculty , lectures were given by representa
tives from no less than ten of the great
electrical plants. The free lecture courses
of Lowell Institute are also given In the
main building of the school.
Of especial Interest are the photographs
of the summer field classes at work In the
mining districts of eastern Canada , Michi
gan and Pennsylvania. The Institute was
one of the first If not the first school to
establish summer work.
Views of the reference library and the
nine departmental libraries , the latter nuro-
being 60,000 volumes , are shown. Besides
these advantages students have access to
the chief libraries and museums of Boston
and certain courses at the Lowell Institute
are open to students of either sex , free of
The school Itself Is co-educational. Mrs.
Ellen H. 'Richards , so pleasantly remem
bered for her scholarly paper , "The Key
stone of the Educational Arch , " read on
Woman's Club day , was the first woman
graduate and Is now Instructor In sanitary
chemistry. It will be remembered the de
sign for the Woman's building at the
World's fair , competed for by women , was
awarded a student of this school ,
Statistics are set forth In charts , cata
logues and institute publications. The charts
outline concisely the thirteen courses , in
cluding civil , mechanical , mining , electrical ,
chemical and sanitary engineering , archi
tecture , chemistry , biology , physics , geol
ogy , naval architecture and general studies.
Thirteen seems a favorite number. The
photographs of the successive boards ot
editors of "The Techthe % students' maga
zine , all number thirteen.
The "Technique , " published by the Jun
iors , Is full of Interesting matter regarding
faculty , students , musical , athletic and fra
ternal organizations. The senior portfolio tor
H97-9S gives the personnel of the class.
On the west wall ot the booth Is a large
photograph of the founder nnd first presi
dent of the Institute , William Barton Rog
ers , n man of broad scholarship , remarkable
foresight and executive ability , and with
more than a national reputation as a sci
entific Investigator , anticipating some of
the later achievements ot Sir William
Thompson , Hclmholtz and others. One loves
to look at the benignant countenance bearIng -
Ing so strong a resemblance to Emerson.
Dr. Rogers' death took place In 1SS2 , just as
he arose to address the graduating class.
After the opening sentences ho paused a
moment , sank back In his chair nnd his
services for the Institute were ended.
In the able successors of President llogers
the name of Francis Amasa Walker stands
out pre-eminently. Ho brought to the
school the fruits and prestige of his many
labors and activities , public and private , la
all of which he had gained high distinction.
After reading the address given at the
meeting held In commemoration of Presi
dent Walker's life and service It scarcely
seems an exaggeration to say , "Of him all
things good can truthfully bo said. " The
faculty In their resolutions thus sum up his
Influence over students : "By an unconscious
appeal to the qualities of manliness and
honest endeavor , which he Illustrated by
personal example , he won a devoted loyalty
and confidence sacredly cherished by him. "
Senator Hoar , In his memorial oration , after
reviewing his services to the nation , his
contributions to science and literature and
his work for the Institute , said : "Boston
will remember him as New Haven remem
bers Dwlght ; as Williams remembers Hop
kins ; as Brown remembers Wayland ; as
Harvard remembers Qulncy. "
Under the direction of President James M.
Crafts ono cannot doubt that the work of
this college of Industrial science will stead
ily advance on the same high plane of ex
cellence which has gained for It the dis
tinction of being not only the largest scien
tific and technical school In the United
States but ono of the largest In the world.

New Institution Opi-nn Under I'nvor-
nlilo Condition * Generally.
CHAMBERLAIN , S. D. , Sept. 22. ( Spe
cial. ) The recently completed government
Indian schoor In this city a few days ago
commenced Its first term under very favor
able conditions. The new educational Insti
tution Is constructed on the latest plans and
has all modern Improvements and conve
niences. It is Justly the pride of the Indian
bureau officials , and when It was proposed
to exhibit models of ancient and modern
types of Indian school buildings at the
Omaha exposition for the best fypo of the
modern building the. officials of the Indian
bureau decided upon the Chamberlain school
building. The main building Is 160 by 32
feet , with a wing 32 by 43 feet. The struc
ture Is of brick , with basement , etc. The
capacity of the building IB pfoced at 100 on
the records of the Indian bureau , but eighty
scholars would fill It comfortably. The at
tendance on the day the school was opened
was fifty-one. These are from the Slsseton
and Crow Creek reservations , and enough
more children have been promised by par-
cuts on these and other reservations to fill
the school within the next ten days. This
Is an exceptionally good record for an Indian
school which has just been opened to find
sufficient favor In the eyes of Indian parents
for them to send their children there. The
sum of $25,000 was appropriated by congress
for the construction of 'tho school and pur
chase of tlio grounds. In addition to this
a further sum of fo.OOO was appropriated
for auxiliary buildings , and these , consisting
of a hospital , combination b/acksmlth and
carpenter shop , barn and laundry , are now
In course of completion or construction. An
artesian well was also mink , which made
possible the establishing of a water system
which Is unique In that there are tn\o dis
tinct lines ot mains , the artesian well fur
nishing power for pumping Missouri river
water Into two large reservoirs located on a
high hill in the rear of the school. The
mains containing artesian water , which Is
very hard , are used solely for fire protec
tion , while the other line of mains has
Missouri river water In them and furnishes
the entire school with soft water for drink
ing and other domestic purposes. The two
reservoirs have a capacity of 250 barrels
each and are situated about 100 feet above
the level of the river. Water from the arte-
slaa well will also bo utilized for Irrigating
a part of the land nnd in the near future
the school will bo lighted by electricity and
the efcct'rlc light dynamo will also be oper
ated by power from the well. The school
was fortunate In securing so able a super
intendent as Prof. Fllnn. He Is very cner-
gct'lc and seems determined to place the
school In the front rank of Indian institu
tions of learning. In these efforts he Is
being loyally sustained by his corps of able
asblstants. It Is probable that within a few
years the capacity ot the school will be
doubled. That the government expects the
school to be successful to a marked degree
is shown by the fact that ground is being
reserved for another building.

Harry Mullison , who came to the Rock >
mountain In " 65 and to Wyoming before the
advent of the Union Pacific railway. Is lu
the city on business , representing the Teller
tie contractors , who have camps on the
Upper Platte and have made an extensive
tlo drtvo to Port Steele and are about start
ing a fall drive to the same place. Mr. MuU
llbon is the superintendent of the company.
He owns the Aztec placers on Brush , which
were worked centuries ago by that race ,
according to tradition and the evidences of
their operations. A tunnel that was run
Into the hill disclosed an old abandoned
shaft In which were rotten timbers. It Is
the common belief In that locality that
these mines If properly worked will prove
valuable to Mr. Mullison.
When ho first reached Wyoming he tackled
the first job he could get , which was that
of a section hand , but In a few weeks found
more agreeable and profitable employment.
He was a pioneer In the sheep business ,
having a ranch near Saratoga. Was after
wards sole manager of the extensive cattle
Interests of Hugus , Mullison & Bcalc.
Mr. Mullison has always been known In
Carbon county as a hustling , Industrious
citizen. He Informs us that the Teller com
pany has 100 men at work nnd will Increase
the force to 250 men , as It Is the Intention
to cut 350,000 tics this winter. He saya
It Is a mistake to suppose that they cut
all the timber , as they can only use trees
from twelve to seventeen Inches In diameter
. ' and that only thirty to fifty trees are cut
from an aero of the forest. As to timber
fires , he says that It Is naturally their policy
to prevent them and that the record of
tie camps shows that there Is little danger
from this source.

Harkoll of San Luis Potosl , Mex. , passed
through here today enroute cast. He says
reports of yellow fever In Tamptco have been
much exaggerated by refugees from that
city. The health authorities have Just con
cluded a searching Investigation at Tamplio
and fouud that while there have been a fotv
deaths from yellow fever there nro no
grounds for alarm. The malady Is very uilld
and Is principally confined to the lowuv
classes , who pay but little attention to per
sonal cleanliness. Ho stated that tourists
from the United States need have no fear
In visiting Mexico , as the } ellow fever to
be found In that country Is confined to the
coast towns and far removed from the prin
cipal inland cities.
