S. Senator takes place in Kansas senator Peffer will be confronted with an embarrassing Story which he May not be Able to explain to the members of the legislature. In 1893 it was charged that Peffer connived with the sugar Trust and secured the appointment for his son to inspect sugar works in Kansas Nebraska and California at $10 per Day and that his utterances it and votes in the Senate smacked of Friendship for the sugar combination. Republican newspapers discussed this matter freely. Now that a senator i election is near the Story has been revived but this time by a California editor who sees an Opportunity to sell his information and at the same time to assist in defeating senator Peffer. The California Man has written to j. W. Breidenthal Peffers chief competitor offering to furnish Complete evidence to convict Peffer of conniving with the sugar trusts for the sum of $500. Or. Breidenthal in an interview to Day declined to give the name of the California editor but he said that he had received this proposition but would not be a party to it. The Man he said offered to print a Page of evidence connecting Peffer with the sugar Combine through the employment of his son and would Send marked copies of the paper to every newspaper in Kansas. Breidenthal declined to have anything to do with the scheme but he admitted to Day that the California editor could furnish some piquant Reading _ a mouse of some account. A correspondent writing from Gray a Idaho to the Salt Lake Tribune says mouse flesh is not generally regarded As a toothsome Dainty nor is one of the Little House pests of sufficient size to gratify a starving Many a yearning for food. Yet upon a mouse Edward Doull subsisted for seven Days whilst lost in the Ca Dou mountains. During this week his sufferings were terrible. Not Only was he compelled to endure the pangs of hunger but the anguish of exposure to the intense cold of the Winter Clad mountains. When found Doull was in pitiful condition. His feet were Frozen and he was so weak from continued exposure that he could not have survived another night. On november 21st, Doull who was an employee of american Placer campany left Grays to return Over the Caribou mountains to the company a ground on the Northeast Side of the Range. He proceeded rapidly and in safety until he reached the Summit of the Mountain. Than a blinding Snow storm began. Doull lost his Way. When the storm ended the Snow had changed the contour of the mountains so that Doull was unable to Tell his whereabouts. The thermometer remained almost stationery at 18 degrees below Zero while Doull was wandering hopelessly among the Hills. On the third Day he found a deserted Cabin and in it he captured a mouse almost As hungry and cold As himself. It furnished the Only meal Doull had during his week of wandering. The head and toes he did not eat because As he said he feared the claws would scratch him while being swallowed and the head might interfere with his digestion. Afterwards he regretted having left these morsels behind. On november 27th he was found by James Sibbet jr., a citizen of Grays and taken to the latter a Home where for a time he Lay in a critical condition. He is now beginning slowly to recover.
