The prime object of the aduiiiuis-  tration at present is to get- at-  .the facts .which is no easy task in  .view of the mass of indefinite statements thaU emluato from various  quarters. Particularly is it desired to know tho precise strength of  the  revolutionary    .sentiment    in   Co  1 tioi^ and it was said on the high-  ��������� est authority that there would bo  the ,10 iutorvention by the United States  imle>,s the rebellion assumed the pro  portions oi" a general conflagration.

"1 may look  upon this matter differently from  others, but I cannot be bought. The  price might be small or large, but  it would be all the same."  So said Chief of Police Ohisholm  to a  World representative.  "1 have been offered bribes by men  direct and by messenger and I have  lefused them all. In regard to the  bribe to which The World gave such  piourinence���������and I am glad it did, 1  may say that on its receipt I put  the money in an envelope with the  following note:  " 'I beg to return the enclosed and  assure you that I value my honor  more than the accepting of such a  bribe, and that if it had been ten  thousand .dollars it would receive  the same treatment, at my hands.'  "After I 'had written tho above I  decidod to 'Wait. Offers to bri'bte me  were becoming so fi������n|ienl, that I Megan to think that despite the stand  I had taken from the. fust that  there were some.despicable scoundrels who thought that I was purchasable. I am not a profane man  but I  could almost have sworn.  VI have one regret," said the chief  with a smile, "and that was that  the bribe'was so small; but T want  the World to state that any gentle-  .mitii-willing' to contribute .to. a worthy, charity,- may feel assured that it;  will reach the right source if sent  to me in that for.m. It will get  through .the proper channel all right;}  but I would like to lay my hands  on ���������li'iiin.  '���������'I am not in the market, or, at  least, my. honor is not," concluded..  Chief Chisholm, "and the sooner  those people know it   the better."  Then the chief names the people  who had fried to bribe him; but  there are libel laws.  IRRIGATION  SCHEME  The New South Wales Government  has entered upon a spin till policy  of water conservation and irrigation  It has been decided to construct a  large dam en the Muvnun,bidgcc tiv-  er at a place called barren Jack,  and from here water will be earned  in irrigation canals over -an area of  358,000 acres. The woik will involve the expenditure of $7, f>(i0,0UO,  and, will represent the first part of  a  great national scheme.  The dam is to be built three miles  below the confluence of the Rliurum-  bidgee and Croodradigfcce rivers, and  when completed will be i!0U feet in  height and 900 feet in .length.  FEAR FELT BY SAILORS  FOR    ARCTLC  WHALERS  The fact that there has   been    no  centuivj    the number   of indigneuts in  report of the whale fleet which was.  means of hearing .. the rebels' statement of these occurrences, and in  the view of officials here there is  good reason to believe that the  whole truth is not disclosed by either  side.  It   is   the  purpose   of   the   administration   to proceed   with   great    de-  the ���������President or Secretary of War. In case the- United  States government finds it necessary  to .intervene in Cubn, the forces  which would have to be used for  that purpose would be found in a  much; bettor state of preparation than  when hostilities occurred between the  United  States  and  Spain.

CURL   COl'iRTS   FUNERAL  P.YRE.  An extraordinary story of suicide  by lire comes from Codsall, a pretty  rural   village   near  Wolverhampton.  i\lr. and Airs. Archibald Walker, of  Woodlield Oaken, in Codsall, were  awakened at an early hour one  morning recently by a smell of smoke  They saw fierce tlames in the yard,  which Mir. Walker extinguished with  a gunlen hose. The fire appeared to  he in a heap of wood and shavings  that had been saturated with paraffin.  The village policeman was called,  and Mr. Walker's household mustered, when it was discovered that tho  cook. Elian Da vies, was missing. An  exnminalion of the remnants of the  fire disclosed charred humiin. rernainsj  which were identified as those of Ifch^  missing cook.  It .ajmii'ired'that the young woman  found paraffin in the kit el ion, nnd  ninde her exit hrj' a window to the  yard, where she built and ignited  ���������her funeral pyre.: The reiason for her'  act is a mystery. She had been in  Mrs. Walker's service two years, and.  was well conducted.  TAKE AN  OVERDOSE   ���������m^������   Walla Walla, Sept. 12.���������Five minutes after the officers broke into  Dave Gregg's room this morning, the  old man, a pioneer of this city, died  presumably from an overdose of laudanum, taken to alleviate the pain  of a headache.  Cregg had not liieen seen for two  days, and when the ofrvner of the  shuck in which he lived called him  today he could get no response. Officers were notiliod. and the door was  broken in. His body shows no marks  of violence, mini the cause of his  death is not definitely known. The  coroner will hold an inquest.  Gregg/ is well known in Walla iWal-  la, having lived here for years.

On the other ha ml, had the  officer been clad in uniform, nine  times out of ten,, it 'would never We  necessary for him to7"get between  the fighters, as it is seen at a'  glance that he is an officer', and the  penalty of resisting is well known.  UNIFORMS FOR POLICE FORCE.  The cases which came up for trial  in the police court last evening,  tho  result   of  which  appears  on  another  page,   aie another  instance   of     the/  necessity   for  proper  uniforms  being  furnished the city police force.  WheW  a man is charged with' havin|gj struck  a  police oficer in  dischaige   of    his  duty,  he    is charged with a   serious  offence,  from which,  if the charge is  proven, there is no escaping a    heavy  fine, no matter what the circumstances  which led  up  io the    deed.  , Some time ago, two young men were  up for this offence,  and although   in  giving their evidence they sjvore they  had   not   known  they  .were  opposing  an officer,  owing to the fact that he  wore no uniform, they were fined jusf  the    same,  paying    in the neighboi-1  hood  of $100 each  for their   offence  Last evening one of the accused stated on oath  thai when talking back  * 'to    Officer    Callondar,    he had   not  known the latter was a member    of  the -police force,  as  he wore no uniform.     Where he had come from tho  "marshals"  as he called  them,     always wore uniforms.  , Of course  the 'distinguishing mark  <of a   badge under the coat lapel   is  all very well in some cases, where a  quiet  arrest    is   being made.      But  when two or  three men arc fighting  on the streets, and an officer runs inj  ���������to separate    them,     he has scarcely  .time'to  say "Gentlemen, ploase wait  ���������until    I get     my badge in   sight to  show you   that 1  am  an officer."  Provided lie is at the time sfcand-  iiiig between two men who are busy  settling a dispute, as is usun.ll" the  case, and 'is a stranger to one or  both of them, he would be very apt  to be regarded as a private citizen  interfering in something which in no  WOULD HELP.  A story is told of John L. Toole,  1 lie comedian, and Mr. Justice Hawkins, now Lord Brampton. They were  at supper ..together discussing the ev-  nits of the day. The judge incidentally mentioned that he intended, on  the morrow, giving the man he had  been tiying fifteen years, because ha  deserved it. As Toole was leaving,  he blandly 'jnquired:  "Oh, would ' you mind my calling  at the newspaper offices and telling  them about ;lhat fifteen years) It,  will be a tip for thorn���������exclusive informal bion, you know���������and will do; mo  no end  of good with  the  press.  "Good    heavens!       .No,  sir,"    exclaimed the judge, who took the precaution of accompaiiiying>   Toole    to  his/hotel and seeing him   to bed.  ���������,������������������ ^ .

A galling feature of. this loss, to the  farmers at least, is the fact that  they twere offered a fair price for  their fruit before it was damaged by  the rains, but they held off-in the  hope of getting better quotations.  Many growers were offered $20'and  $15 a ton a little over a week ago  for fruit that is now valueless.
