Wallace, Idaho, July 28.���PaUl Corcoran is guilty of tbe murder of James  Cheyne. After deliberating all night,  the jury filed into the court room this  morning and announced the  verdict:  "Guilty of murder in the second  degree." ' ,  , Which meAnt that Paul Cdrcbrdn-  leader of the fiotersj must spend at  least' 10 yeats in the penitentiary to  atone for his part in the outrages at  Wardner on that eventful Saturday)  April 29.  .

The Canadian Bank  of Commerce  is establishing a branch at Fort Steele,  Russell A.' Alger   has resigned   his  position    in   McKinley's   cabinet  ' as  secretary of  war, and Elihu  Root  of  New  York   has been appointed as his ���  successor. .   '    '  Durirlg the year  1898   there  were,  112,500 tons of ore  and   concentrates  of a value of nearly 12,000,0ri0 shipped  out of- the  Cour d'Alene country  in '  Idaho.    Tohaul this  away,  says' the  Wallace Press, required  5,125  freight  cars   carrying   20   tons   each,   and if"  placed on a  side   track  at one  time  the siding would have to be 66   miles,   ���  and if made up, in trains of 10  cars  each, more  than   can' be  handled  in  this country, and   the  trains fastened  together,> when   the  front ,end  of  it  reached Tekoa the last caboose  would  still be in sight, in the yards here.    Or  to take it from this locality and  make  a  wider  comparison, while  the con-  ductor on   the  last  caboose was  still  looking at the beacon on the statue of *  liberty in New York harbor the engineer on  the   front   engine would  be  viewing the lights of Philadelphia,  ,    Platform.

'BiBurriw^was well pleased ^ithhim-
and with the progress which he
made so far in the investigation
. He thought that he had
managed Weston with considerable
Tdroftness. All that/he had noped
when h-e had started was to find some
clue to prove .Marvel's identity wi-tli
?he late visitor at Kiverside. He had

cceeded beyond his hopes, for here
^■afa wftnesl, however unjvilllngr. who
could be made to testify that in the
stranger and despite his disguise he
hid been able to recognize Marvel himself Moreover, he now felt satisfied
thpt Marvel had lied when he
that he had thrown his disguise
the river, a.nd he'even hoped to'find
some trace of it at the old house.
Promptly at 6 Burrows was called,
and in a'very little time'ho was ready
to'start Weston gave him full .directions as to how to find Marvel's house.
After walking about a mile beyond
the more-populous portion of the town,
Burrows reached his destination, w^hich
he readily recognized from Weston's description. The house itself could bare-
be seen ,from the road. *3t was in
■ midst of a number of large trees,
and besides, as no care had been given
to the place in years, lt was sur-rouiia-r.
ed by dense shrubbery ancl covered
with vines. Thus, everything about
being green, it would scarcely
attracted .the attention of a casual oh
server. Burrows thought it a very
good retreat for a man anxious to
avoid the scrutiny of his fellows, and
entered <rmore than ever satisfied tha.
some important developments awaited
his  examination of  the  interior.
Pushing open the door, which moved
noiselessly on Its hinges, despite the
dilapidation everywhere apparent, he
found himself in a small but well
lighted room. In this, which had been
originally a kitchen, there was some
slight evidence of civilized habitation.
The stove bore no signs of rust, and
the ashes of a recent fire attested the
fact that the owner used it, perhaps
for cooking, as a kettle, partly hUeci,
still rested'in one of th'e holes. ,A-*ur"
rows observed this at a glance, but the
dust apparent In all other parts of the
Burrows smiled ax he thought to himself,
"Marutl lied.",
room satisfied him that, except
making a cup of coffee or other nub.
cooking, the apartment hail been abandoned. He thought1 that lv; m,'*sl- lo°^
further for thc- room in which he hoped
to   find  some   evidence.
He passed thiough  a door and found
himself in the dining-room, as a table
and cupboards  proved.   A casual peep
into the latter showed a small store of
canned meats and fruits, biscuits, butter,   sugar,   ancl   the   like.      The   next
apartment   was   tho   sitting-room,   but
the dust and dirt everywhere- bespoke
an absence of all  care on  the rjart on
the   occupant.      Ascending  one   tlight,
he explored two rooms in a similar condition of neglect before he reached one
in which there were any signs of habitation.      This was plainly if not rudely   furnished,    aud   contained   nothing
but what was absolutely necessary, in
a sleeping-room.      -V cot-bed, a metal
washbowl, and a pitcher on a painted
wooden stand; a looking-glass without j
a  frame,   tacked   to  the wall;- an   old. j
dressing-case with the top, which originally  held  a  glass,   entirely  missing;
a few chairs, and the inventory is complete,      lt  was evident that   the'house
was used, as has been stated, only as
an occasional sleeping place.     The few
odds and ends had been gathered from
the general wreck and put in this one
room,   in   the endeavour to make itat
least  habitable.      Any  further   trouble
or  expense had  been considered  unnecessary.      There   was   a     commodious
closet, which had probably decided thc
selection of the room, for it,was  filled
with  a  miscellaneous-collection   of  articles, arranged  with . evident care and
neatness,   comprising   outfits   for   gun-
ninir, fishing, etc.
Burrows glanced about for the clues
for which he was searching.   The lirst
point   to   determine   ws-«     I-mrl    th*   mun

ibis is his  sleeping-room, -he probably
brought  it  in  here,   whatever  he   may

the  rest   of  the    house, 'there   is

that I can find out, from such a. source,

and laid them down, the water would
huve "converted the dust into mud and
would have left a distinct mark on the
lloor       There   is   nothing   nt   the  Kind
about, su he did not put them on the
lloor.      What   did   he  do   with, them .'
What  would   1   do   under  similar  circumstances ?.      .Burn     them   perhaps.
But   thev wore saturated   with   water.
S»iU  it   is  always   dangerous   to   conceal  such  evidence,  for  someone  tfon-
f-ally  finds   the   best  ■ hidden   articles
when'a crime is connected with tliem.
Therefore I  should   have   burned' tKfcm
at all cc-t of time or trouble.,    1 should
have   burned   the   satchel .with   them
building a lirge log fire and putting it
with  its  contents  on  lop  ot  the  logs.
In this wav,  by the time the fire had
destroyed, "the    satchel,   .the- clothes,
would   be dry  enough ■ to .burn.    J hen
I   should   have   raked  out  and   thrown
away the ashes,  a  point  which  would
not strike a  criminal, as  quickly as a
detective-at   least,   it   seems  'that   it
seldom   does.      I   think  1   may  as well,
examine  the fire-place." _ •
Reaching this'point in his reasoning,
he  went  to   tne   chimney    and   found
some ashes.     He carefully biushed the
pile onto a piece of newspaper,  which
he took from his overcoat pocket. Tms
done,  he  laid   the  whole   on   the   floor
rear' the    window, ■ ancl   then,  with  a
piece   of   stick,   gradually   moved   the
soft ashes fr<-*m the centre -to the side.
As he did tiiis he  was careful to ex-,
amine   every  particle,     searc-hlnir   for
anvthing that may have escaped combustion.      It   was   not  long  before   his
patience was rewarded, for first a few
lion   buttons   and   then   several   other
nieces, of- iron  or metal  of some kind
were separated  from the debris.     The
buttons   of course,   proved   that  something more  than  an  ordinary  fire had
been made on  the hearth, and it was
but_£air_lto suppose that clothlnc had
been burned.      The other'things, however,  puzzled  him  awhile,  for,  though
rot 'entirely  destroyed,   he still, found
it 'hard to tell exactly what they were.
After some thought he concluded that
the majoritv of the metal had orlsinal-
]\*  belorged"   to   the  frame.work   of  the
satchel       One  niece  still  remained  to
be'accounted for.      This was a bit of
wire' .   Burrows   was     almost   on   the
point of throwing this away, as unimportant, when  it suddenly occurred   to
him that it must be all that was left
of   the     false    whiskers.      There   was
nnthlm?    more    that    he    could   make
ovit  of" the    ashes;    still  he  carefully
wrapped all  up  and  placed  the package in  a small satchel,  which -he had
brought  with'   him.      Burrows  smiled
as   he   thought     to   himself:—" Marvel
lied when he said  the locket was still
in his pocket.     There is no trace of it
here,   so 'it   is    evident     that   the   one
found was the same which he had with
him that nisht."
Burrows   was  now  anxious    to   lino
the   pistol.       He   recollected   that   the
squire   had   told   of   the   pistol   which
Marvel  had  left at the  house,  and   a*
ho knew  that it had  not  been  found
ho deemed it probable that it was the
weapon used in the murder.    This was
not   so   readilv , reasoned   out   as   the
other   matter,   for,   as   a   pistol   could
not be burned, it must be hidden,c and
as there wa: no wav of guessing the
hiding place there was but one course
open   to him—namelv,   to  hunt."    This
lie  did as   thoroughly   as  Mr.   Barne-i
had   taught   hiin   to  do,   and  when, he
went downstairs again  he  felt'aim.--st
sure   that   the   weapon   had   not   been
concealed    above.       He    was     just,    as
thorough  in  going over  the  rooms   orv
the   lower   floor,   and   finally     reached
the   kitchen   without   having  found   :t.
He had not locked long in  this place,
however,   before   he   noticed   that   the
tiles   in   front   of   Uie   stove   had   boon
c-l»tui-bre-L     One of the stones bad been
so poorly replaced that Burrows muttered to hlms:-lf, " He must havo wanted   this  to   be   found."      Removing   it,
he   disclosed   a   hole   below,   in   whi'-h
was  a   oistol.    'He  took  this out,   and
another object attracted  bis attention.
This   proved   lo   be   it   small    piece   <>t
silvej-plaled  metal, and a closer  scrutiny    r.'veale.l   lhe   fact   that   a   name
was engraved thereon.    This name was
"Juhi.  LfcW'is."
" Better and better," thought the
detective. " How nicely thc pro: antic ns of a criminal, as usual, serve to
■convict h!m. This is a plate which
he wrenched from the satchel, and
the name proves that he got that at
the farm. -I am not stivpri.sed any
lorcer that he did not disturb any of
his'own people that' night, for he did
not go home at ally He obtained, a
change   at   the   house   of   his   victim.

An experiment which may
radical change in our rural, m ul seM ice
h now being, tried In Mary land. In-
stead of a number of small ^»'lhJ,J^
occupying corners ol genei ^
front k mis in farmers
homes, the postal dep... tinent J^ ^
tabllshsd a traveling postoihe wL»-h
covers a route 31 miles long, oi xathcr
makes a circuit of that length.
The  traveling postofuee  is contained
in a covered wagon which was invented
by a Maryland man.    The
fers materially from any „..niiv
postal service. It is planned especially
for the delivery of mail along country
roads. While light of weight it is made
a** strong and durable as material will
permit. The cover incloses completely,
having two windows on each si-*: and
doors. ^Within there is room for a mail
-arrier to stand at a distributing table which has drawers and pigeonholes
for mail matter. Outsicle there is a
driver's'seat. The body of the wagon
is .painted, navy blue, and the running
sear is yellow. On each side of
wagon in large white letters- is
The plan is very simple,
wagon, equipped with' the necessary
■compartinents'ana appliances for handling the mail, will traverse certain well
defined circuits where mail boxes
he stationed at intervals.-
The postal clerk will ride inside
wagon, which will be driven by a
liable.man. This postal clerk will take
the mail from the boxes and place any
mail there maybe for the owner therein. This is arranged,for houses not directly on the post road.
Where the houses are situr'ed directly on the post road the driver 0will blow
from the house to' the repository,
except for that trouble would have the
I™ benefit from the free- delivery■ a-
persons living directly upon the mam
road traveled by the carrier
For several years the postal depart-
n.ent has been considering similar
plans, as it had become a r^fimed
fact that the city dweller, with half a
dozen deliveries of mail every day, was
getting much more than he deserved
when compared with' the rural resident,
who had to put up with one mail a day
and had no free delivery at all.
If the postal wagon system should be
generally adopted, it would mean that
a large number of the 40.000 fourth class
postofflces now established would be
done away with. Each wagon would
displace from two to six small offices,
making one of them a central distributing station - from which the* wagon
would start each morning and to which
it would return every night.
The daily gathering of gossips at the
village postofiice would become a tiling
of the past, but it.is probable that most-
dwellers 'in rural communities would
ffladly exchange this unprofitable foregathering for,the daily paper and other
advantages which a free daily delivery
of mail would bring.

getting angry now,   ' He did not relish

Mr.   Barnes  did  not

"I will despatch a message to the

- Do so if you wish. Perhaps I shall
send a message also that will place a
different aspect on what you ask them
to do. I have discovered the true criminal, and I doubt if I shall be recalled
for   so   doing."        '
"Mr. Barnes stopped a moment to reflect. He did not wish to force Burrows into any hasty action, and preferred, if possible, still to control him.
So, abandoning for a moment his tone
of command, he asked :
"Since you have assumed charge of
the affair, w.ill you mind telling ine
what you wish to do next?"
- " I believe that the evidence is all
to*be given to the grand jury to-day.
1 should go to Dover at once and relate, to them the facts which 1 have
just" told you."       , ,

thc: trouble which you have already
given to Miss L,e\«'s,' you -will now go
and obtain the indictment of her lover,
notwithstanding the fact that he is
" Of course he is innocent. You have
proved 'it by your work. Only by
your delay you have lost all traces of.
the   r.-al   criminal."
" But how can you say that he is
ii'.roicut when I have proved that he
c-atne here straight from the farm ;
that   he   was   recognized--"
" By a man who does not know him."
" But  here in hi.s own house are signs
of  his   guilt."
" Burrows,   if  this   were   not   so   serious a case, I., would let you have your
way,  and then, at the' trial, show you
what-an-Idiot you are.;    But as t.wis'i,
ii!   possible,   to   avoid   any   more   mistakes,  I. will show you  how, easy  it is
for., me   to' overturn    your   castles   In
the   air.      According     to     your   latest
theory, you make Marvel commit, murder   and   leave- the   town   on   a   train

it  is   plain   that  Marvel  has   an   easily
proved- alibi." y
Burrows flushed at this, but he was
not willing to give-tip his theory without  one  more' struggle. ,.
•'The only .wav in ■ which he could
prove that would be bv the testimony
of his accomplice, and"—--.
. "Stop! ..For shame, Mr. BurrowH !

patron-has a box, in which his mail is

arrangement by which the patron- living back a .considerable distance .and
even out of sight may be informed when
the carrier has put any mail for him in

the box gives the signal at the other
end of a-wire.
Persons who do not desire this electrical connection can have their boxes
at much less cost. This plan also provides that the carrier shall carry
stamps, stamped envelopes and postal
cards to fill the order which he may
find left for hiin in the repository. By
the arrangement the inventor claims
that peoplp living back one,' two and
