Los Angkies Colo. Dec. 20.
A horriblo story of the wild law
and superstition of the Mojavo In-
dians is told by J. F. Saunders
who arrived last ovening from
Needles a town on the Colorado
river on the Atlantic and Pacific
railway. IIo hid heard the details
just before ho took tho train aud
they stem to be corroborated by an
account given in a local paper"
"The Eye" which ho brought with
him. The Mojavo Indians' reserva-
tion is about half a mile from Need-
les and the Aborigines are virtually
their own masters having their own
laws and suporstitions. fcrom Saun-
ders' account on Tuesday last a
triple murder was committed-under
the plea of tradition by tho IndiauB.
One of the prettiest squaws
known as boneta was married ac-
cording to savage ritW about a
year 3go. She was a comely girl
only eighteen years old and had
picked up some education. Her
husband wa? one of the bravest
warriors. Sunday last she gavo
birth to twins and as a result a
grand pow wow was called for ac
cording to Mojave tradition tho
squaw who has twins is a witoh aud
the consort of evil spirits. Tho
penalty has always been deatli for
babies and mother Lonota's
husband was fond of her however
! ni he made a strong plea for her
and her babies but it was of no
avail. The medicine men held that
the old custom must bo observed
and the two little ones were brought
forward and brained with a club.
Loneta was kept for a more try-
ing ordeal which she suffered with-
out complaint. Every one of her
personal belongings was gathered
and put into her "shack" and she
was ordored to go inside. She bade
her husband farewell and went in.
The entranoo was closed straw and
brush were piled about tho frail
structure and it was fired. In two
hours nothing but a few embers re-
mained to tell her tragio Btory.
The officers at Needles learned
the facts too lato to interfere and
the poor squaw with this horrid
torture passed to tho happy hunting
groundB where her ulstarred oil-
spring had precided her.

A Foreign View.
London Deo. 20. Tho Tele-
graph in commenting upon tho
alleged discovery at Abilene
Kansas of a plot to kduap Profli
dont Cleveland's little daughter
Ruth says it hopes it is only tho
story of an American writer who
happened to bo short of Christmas
copy. In viow howovor of simi-
lar exploits liko the abduction of
Charlio Ross tho Telegraph adds
that it is impossible to entiroly dh-
miss tho story as unfounded. Thoio
bont on money making havo no
reverence for President Cleveland
who is not hertsd around with
divinity. Newspapers regardless
of sense or chivalry C3ll Mrs.
Cleveland "Frankie" aud people
who tolerate this sort of thing the
Telegraph says must not bo sur-
prised if the president's daughter is
in reality stolen.
The Army's Noble Work.
Sax Fkancisco Deo. 20 The
Salvation Army here attempted to
carry Christmas cheor into San
I'rancisoo's darkest homos and
gladden tho hoarts of thousands iu

enroni butter roast of mutton or

Mitchell off for Florida.
Washington Deo. 20. Charlie
Mitchell the pugilist passed
through Washington today enroute
to Jacksonville Florida. As he
stepped from tho train ho was hand-
ed a telegram from the Btate senator
representing St. Augustune stating
that tho people of that locality were
with Mitohell and wanted to see the
fight go on in Bpito of the govern
or's threatened interference. Mitch-
ell telegraphed to his manager at
Jacksonville that he was on tho way
and was in tip top condition. To
an associated press reporter Mitch-
oil said: "I havo no doubt tho fight
will come oil' notwithstanding tho
opposition of tho governor for tho
people down thero would not have
a fellow travel that far for nothing.
After my sweat yesterday I took a
slight cold which is bothering me
but otherwise I was never in better
condition in my life and the Flor-
ida climate will dispose of the cold.
I am not doing muoh talking about
the fight but of course I feel confi
dent of winning. There ia a good
deal of talk about Corbett's superior
reach and height but I know all
about that and figured on it before
the matoh was made."
