Mr. School has been on the trail of Darling
for the past year but lost track of him
everal months ago. and finally learned
of his operations In Day county, and where
he was laying the foundations for another
escapade. Two weeks ago Darling was
married to Miss Agnes Curran of lioston,
Mass , who came out west to fulfill her
part of the marriage contract, but his
strong desire to keep the marriage abso
lutely secret led to Investigation and his
later discovery. When arrested Darling
had Just opened his school for the day.
Darling had eleven suit cases In his pos
session, which ho had stolen from various
hotels In the state, most of them from one
of the hotel at Chamberlain.
Admit Severn! Murrlnnea.
Darling admitted, when Interviewed here
today, that he has been married three or
four times. The Indications are that there
are more victims, mostly school teachers.
From his converkatlon It la believed that
he employed a system of finding school
teachers who were living on claims, would
woo them for a short period and then
marry them. Afterwards he would dis
pose of the relinquishment and then leave
them alone. Ono of his methods of obtain
ing money was to visit banks, as he al
leges, borrow money on the fact that he
was a school principal, the amount vary
ing from $10 up. lie has been carrying on
a correspondence with a great number of
women bearing on the subject of matrl
money. According to Nebraska reports Darling
has operated in that state, as well as In
Wisconsin, Iowa, North and South Dakota,
where It was his custom to call at post
offlcus and inquire for mall belonging to
other persons. In support of this Darling
had in his possession between 600 and 70o
letters bearing the addresses of other peo
ple. It Is likely that the government will
take him in hand for his operations along
this line. Darling seemed to take his
arrest coolly and gave little heed to what
Is in store for him in the future.

country was considered as one In which
agriculture would thiive.
Claymore, as he was generally known by
his many acquaintances in this part of
the state, or "Clement," as he la called
by his biographers, was born In Bt. Louis

years old. and has resided in the Dakotaa
ever since. In that time he worked as a
trapper for the American Fur company at
points along the Missouri as far up as
Fort Benton, but most of the time in the
territory covered by the Dakotas.
Soon after coming up the river he took
an Indian wife and located his home in
little Bend on the east aide of the Mis
souri, opposite the mouth of the Cheyenne
river. Here he called home in all his
wanderings up to the time the days of the
fur trader were no more, and when that
part of the territory was opened to settle

to a point on the west side of the river a
short distance up stream from the mouth
of the Cheyenne river, where he has made
Ms horns with his sons since, his home for
nearly seventy years having been at the
mouth of the Cheyenne river.
But during that time Claymore wandered
over a great part of Uie northwest, either
as a trapper or fur trader, or as a govern

rivers later. In 1861 he acted as a guide
for General llaruey. and was again an

he acted as guide for General Sully in
his campaigns against the Sioux In the
Dakota territory. After that he put In a

Elephant is Executed

NEW YORK, Nov. 26,-It took 600 grains
of cyanide of potassium, the most deadly
poison known, to kill Gypsy Queen, a
trick elephant, executed today for the mur

She had been starved for twenty-four
hours and ate greedily. At the end of ten
minutes she shivered in all her vast bulk
of 7.860 pounds, her knees weakened, her
trunk grew rigid, she rolled her eyes and
finally fell. In the next two minutes ahe

chains that bound her. At the end of
twenty minutes her breathing was im

That was the lost sign of life. The Queen

keeper, who had been warned not to go
near her, slammed him against the wall
of her cell and then trod him into pulp. A

keeper, but he kept out of reach. Never

To prove her docility he took her out to
day a few minutes before her execution

seemed willing enough to perform and sub

to her death.
Wood Asserts Nation
is Not Ready for War
Chief of Staff Paints Gloomy Picture
of Lack of Proper Preparations
WASHINGTON, Nov. 26. Major General
Wood, chief-of-staff, paints a rather
gloomy picture of the lack of preparedness
of the army in case of war In his annual
report to the secretary of war, made public
today. There were weak spots In many
directions, he said, and most serious was
the shortage of field artillery and ammuni
tion, a fault which should be Immediately
corrected. General Wood declared there
was a great lack of reserve seacoast am
munition and that at the present rate of
appropriation by congress It would take
more than fifty years to obtain a reason
able supply of ammunition for the coast de
fense and a still longer time to obtain the
necessary artillery and ammunition.
If the regular army and organised militia
strength were called to arms today, said
General Wood, there would be a shortage
of more than 60 per cent In the field
artillery necessary to equip them. This
force would represent only a portion of the
force called to arms In case of war with
a first-class power. General Wood strongly
urged the passage by congress of the pend
ing bill for raising a volunteer army In
time of war. "

ST. LOUIS, Nov. 26.-The question of
whether the Western Federation of Miners
could be granted a charter by the Ameri
can Federation of l.abor was placed be
fore President Gompers last night by the
convention on a point of federation law
raised by Frtsldent James O Connell of
the International Association of Machin
ists. President O'Connell. who is leading the
fight against the proposition to grant an
unrestricted charter to the western miners,
declared that the constitution of the fed
eration provided that In cases where
charters were applied for, in which the
question of Jurisdiction came up, the
wiitten consent of the chief officials of
till other organisations involve' had to be
obtained first. He said Uiat he, as presi
dent of the machinists, hud never given
such consent, and asked that the point
be passed upon.
President Gompers waa unprepared to
act before adjournment was taken.
Whether the controversy will be re-opened
depends on whether Gompers renders his
decision. In response to demands that this
decision be made tomorrow, he said that
as soon as he had arrived at an opinion,
he would state it. Labor leaders tonight
say that he holds the key to the situa
tion. The controversy waa precipitated by the
report of the special committee,
favored granting the charter with
proviso that the Jurisdiction of
machinists organization In
the states af-
fected should not be Interfered with. This
report was amended by President Thomas
L. Lewis of the United Mine Workers to
give the western federation Jurisdiction
over men employed In mines, mills or
smeiters, without reference as to whether
they were machinists or not.
Delegate F. M. Ryan of the Bridge and
Structural Iron Workers presented a sub
stitute for the Lewis amendment, providing
that Jurisdictional, rights should remain
vested in the international unions having
locals In any of the sections controlled by
the western federation.
Against the Ryan substitute Preslden
Lewis and John Mitchell of the mine
workers led the fight, with O Connell and
others supporting it.
O'Connell declared that If the charter
without restrictions was gi anted by the
convention his organization would with
draw from the federation.
Charles H. Moyer, nead of the Western
Federation and a guest of the convention,
by invitation explained that the invitation
to become affiliated with the American
Federation had been repeated yearly for
fifteen years. He said that the question
of Jurisdiction would not be serious.

ident's report, which was adopted, dlreots

subjects of condemnation earlier in the

and War Against It.
ST. PETERS m RG. Nov. 26 -The As

Vladimir Tschertkoff, literary anent of the
late Count Tolstoi, the last article written
by Tolstoi. It Is entitled "Effective
Means." it was written by Tolstoi in the
Opt.na monastery on November 11, shortly
after he began his self-imposed exile from
home. The article was given the Associ
ated Press by M. Tschertkoff at the ex
press wish of Count Tolstoi for dissemina
tion to mankind. It says In part:
'"I am naturally anxious to do all I can
against evil, which tortures the best spirits
of our time.
"1 think the prment effective war against
capital punishment does not need forcing.
There Is no need for an expression of
Indignation against Its immorality, cruelty
and absurdity. Every sincere, thlnkng
person, very body knowing from youth the
sixth commandment, needs no explanation
of Its absurdity and immorality. There Is
no need for descriptions of the horrors of
executions, as they only affect hangmen,
o men will more unwillingly become
executioners and governments will be
obliged to compensate them more dearly
for their services.
"Therefore, I think that neither the ex
pression of Indignation against the murder
of our follow men nor the suggestion of
Its horrors la mainly needed, but some
thing totally different.
"As Kant well says, there are delusions
which cannot be disproved and we must
commun rate to the deluded mind knowl
edge that will enlighten and then the
delusions will disappear by themselves.
"What knowledge need we communicate
to the duluded human mind regarding the
lack of lndlrpensableness, usefulness or
Justice of capital punishment in order that
said delus on may destroy Itself."
