McMullin, a government hunter, accompanied by Robert Reid with several hunting: dogs, had a thrilling fight with a grizzly bear and her two cubs 22 miles southeast of this place. j McMullin killed the mother bear, but desired to take the ' cubs alive. He called off the dogs and went back to the camp of JVr. Reid and got the cattle man to go along with him. Tlie trail of the two bear cubs was taken up. McMullin had a wrestling match with one bear and the bear came out on top, when Reid went to ihis assistance, and between them they tied the bear to a tree. In the meantime the other bear took to a tree and for three hours McMullin lassoed the bear only to have the cub with its front paws push  the rope off. Finally by a quick move I McMullin succeeded in getting a tight grip on the bear with the lasso and pulled the animal down. ' The cub which had tlje wrestling match with the government hunter died; the lassoed cub will be sent to the zoological gardens in Washington.

He told of the necesoitles which caused the governmen.t to take over the*^ railways and went, on :to "say thai' he the congress my purpose to join in Paris the representatives of the governments with whom we (have been associated in the war against the central empires for the purpose of discussing with them the main features of the treaty of peace.

"The allied governments have accepted the basis of peace which I outlined to congress on the eighth of January last, as the central empires also bave, and very rolisohably .desire my perrohal counsel in their interpretation and application and it is highly desirable that I should give it ini'order that the Binoefe desire of our govern-meiit to c6ntribute without seti!Ish purpose'^:of any kind to settlements that will be o?. common benefit to all nations concerned, j^may. be made fully manifest.
