IS TOTALLY DEPRAVED. "George Hinckley, the Latah county embezzler, who is now serv ing a lengthy term in the peniten tiary, presents a case of total de pravity, says the Boise Statesman. ''Hinckley is a splendid pen man. He is also a rapid account ant, his adroitness both in addition and subtraction being fully brought out in the course of his trial on the charge of appropriating large sums of Latah county funds during the time he occupied the position of deputy auditor and recorder. Nat urally enough he was pressed into service at the penitentiary oflice. There was nothing for him to steal there, and, under the watchful eyea of the officers in charge, he would, it was thougnt, be of more service in the office than in the stone quarry. "Taking advantage of the posi tion, however, he soon found a way to open correspondence with several lewed women. This he kept up for j some time. Hinckley's disgraceful j conduct finally reached the ears of the governor and the chief execu tive at on...

THE WRONG MAN. Last week Capt. J. C. Oylear, of Potlatch, caused the arrest of one Robert Owing!?, charging him with attempted murder, says the Moscow- Mirror. Jt appeared from tha evi dence of the prosecution that Ow ings had gone to Oylear's house about midnight and fired several times with a Winchester at Oylear, who returned the fire with a pistol. The case occupied five days in the probate court and the defense de nied firing the shots and proved by several witnesses that he was at home on the night the shooting was done. On Wednesday the young man whom the defense charged with doing the shooting appeared on the scene and offered to go on the stand and admit that he fired the shots at the time stated, but that he did not shoot at Mr. Oylear. but at his dog, which ran out at him on the road. Owings was dis charged by Probate Judge Ander son, there not being sufficient proof; the evidence for the prosecution be ing only circumstantial. There will probably not be anything done wit...

CONFUSION OK TONGUES. The book agent is usually well able to look out for himself. He receives, a* a rule, no sympathy in the serious troubles and difficulties which occasionally overtake him. This is, no doubt, a pity, for book agents are often as sensitive as other people, and quite as deserving. College student's who are compelled to find some means of earning mon ey during their summer vacation have occasionally adopted the book agent's pursuit; and they, perhaps, have been the worst sufferers from the accidents and exigencies of the trade. Last summer a student from nor thern New Hampshire, who had fioished his Freshman year at College, took an agency for a book which seemed to him to ''offer ele ments of popularity," and went out on foot along the country roads. lie had a singular and somewhat unpleasant nasal utterance, and aside from this peculiarity he pos sessed many of the qualities which recommend a person as a book peddler. He sold a few copies to farmers' , wives and d...

GOSSIP OF CONGRESS Reorganizaton of the Two Houses Is the Topic Uppermost. TOM REED HAS NO OPPONENT Two CandiJates for the House Clcik ship, Three for the Position of Doorkeeper. Washington, Nov. 25.—The arrival of a number of senators and members last night and today, including Ex- Speaker Reed, has served to increase discussion over the reorganization of the two houses of congress and the prospect is now that this will be the uppermost question in congressional circles until the house contest is settled and it is decided whether th» (senate will recognize them. The fact that the speakersbip is uni versally conceded to Mr. Reed has had the effect of concentrating interest in the other elective officers and it ap pears probable that the elimination of the speakership will not diminish the general concern over the result. Mr. Henderson and Mr. McDowell are the only two candidates for the house clerkship and it is not believed that any dark horse candidates will develop between this t...

The ragged walls, the deserted terraces and the melancholy looking statues, which have remained up to now in the midst of the lovely se questered gardens and wooded heights on the banks of the Seine, are being rap idly carted away. Their place will be taken by orna mental beds of flowers, for the construc tion of which a sum of 45.000 francs has been voted by the town council.

The Pullman Herald. Vol. VIII, No. 7. THE PS OF THE CITY. TOWW. xx.^.xa?*£::fcTisT<s-s oar .a. week in f —Last Sunday evening while C. M. Beckett was returning to his home near Johnson after attending church in the village, he was con siderably surprised to see a large, fat bull elk standing in the road, about one mile from the town. Mr. Beckett at once concluded that elk steak would go pretty well, so he saddled a horse, and obtaining a 32-calibre rifle started in pursuit. On Union Flat he was joined by J-. V. Meek, similarly armed, and they had a merry race across country after the "monarch of the forest." The elk had no difficulty in getting over the fences, but the hunters were obliged to make an opening in each fence to which they came. The night was bright, and the race after elk steak was an exciting one. Several shots were fired at the ani mal, but the bullets were not heavy enough to kill at long range, and it was not till Mr. Beckett's mastiff joined in the sport, and b...

After reciting the fact of the completion and commissioning or the now warships Olympia, Minneapolis and Indiana, built by contract, and the Maine, Tex as and Amphitrite. built at the govern ment navy yards, the secretary calls attention to the failure of the ram Ka tahdin to make the rate of speed named In the contract for her construction, and refers the matter to congress. He says the department expects the Terror and Monadnock to be in commission February 1, 1896, and the Puritan about July 1, 1896.

TOM REED 13 THE STAR Fifty-Fourth Co: g ess Assemb'ed Monday Noon. ALL EYCS ON THE FORMER Senate Opening an Animated and Bril liant Occasion, but the Proceed ings Were Routine. Washington, D. C, Dec. 2.—The Fif ty-fourth congress assembled at noon today. It is a "tidal wave" congress, and, like most of its predecessors of that character, is notable for the num ber of faces that are missing and the number of faces that appear for the first time, and many of the owners of which, up to the closing of the polls in their respective localities, had scarcely the slightest hope that they would figure in the organization of the present house. As the members strolled in by on<'s. and twos, and threes this morning, the occupants of the press galleries, who have seen congressmen come and go, could not fail to be struck with the fact that thin was a decid< dly "new" house, and to further note the large number of old stand-by* that were among the absent. The seat so long occupied by Richard...

MADAGASCAR'S RESOURCES. New YorK World. Now that France has Madagas car in her grasp, her wise men are ; beginning to direct attention to wards the best methods of turning to account that island's vast but undeveloped agricultural possibil ities, and to assert that in time it should become a veritable mine of wealth for that nation. It is stated that sugar-cane can be cultivated as successfully in Madagascar as in Cubi. Cotton grows wild almost everywhere, and in a few instances where its culti vation has been attempted the prod uct has been of extraordinarily fine quality. The vanilla plant also flourishes in Madagascar. Few people arc aware that the source of this com monest of flavoring extracts is a parasitic plant, like the orchid. Though it grows wild, the best re sults are obtained from its cultiva tion. It is propagated by cuttings, and it takes eighteen months for the first flowers to appear. The flowers, as well as the tiny seeds. are the bases for the extract of com merce...

THE BLYTHE ESTATE The Daughter Given Possession by the Courts. FOUR MILLIONS ARE INVOLVED The Attorneys for the Successful Lit! -ant Will Receive One Fourth as Their Reward. San Francisco, Nov. 30.—The supreme court of California closed the litigation over the Blythe estate today by deny ing all existing appeals, except that of the Blythe company from the decree of distribution. Today's decision prac tically settles the whole case, confirm ing Florence Blythe Hinckley in the possession of her father's property, valued at $4,000,000. The Blythe case was one of the most noted in the civil history of California courts. The question hinged on pa ternity, the efforts of other claimants being directed toward proving that Florence Blythe was no relation of Thomas Blythe, who had a valuable estate when he died. Now that the question has been settled the lawyers in the case will receive their reward. It is understood that their fees will amount to over $800,000, attorneys for the successful ...
