A distinguished company had been invited to
meet the famous statesman, and the toast to his
health was drunk with enthusiasm. Replying
in his native language, the Japanese ex-Premier
paid that the ever thickening network of com

opinion the focus of international competition
was moving toward the Pacific. H» modestly

of spreading unfoui.ded rumors of an alarming

truth of the matter was that he had been shot.

as BROTHER-IN-LAW OF GENERAL FRE
MONT AND LIVED IN ICELAND.
London. Jan. 3. — A verdict of suicide during
temporary Insanity was returned by a coroner's
Jury This morning in the case of Baron Charles
<"auldre Bollleau, who was found shot in a rail
road carriage at Loughborough Junction, Sun
day. Horn? Payne, a lawyer, testified that the
deceased man was a French baron and the son
of a former French consul general in Canada.
His father married a daughter of Senator Ben
ton, of the United States. The baron had been
depressed on account of business matters. He
lived in Iceland, where he bad a large estate.
Baron Boilleau'a father was formerly First
Secretary of the French Legation at Washing
ton. He was appointed by Emperor Napoleon,
and held the additional office of Canadian Con
sul General. While in Washington he married
Senator Benton'a daughter, thus becoming
brother-in-law of General Fremont. The elder
Boilleau later was French Minister to Peru, and
married again. His widow is now living at
Pisa. The suicide was the elder Baron Boil
leau's youngest son by his first marriage. Th«
deceased had two brothers in America. The.
eldest. Baron Henton BnUleau. lived at New-
Orleans. Th- suicide was wealthy, but lately
he had spent large sums in endeavoring to get
th- Iceland Parliament to permit English ves
sel- to fish within the three-mile limit. Wlfh
this end In view he was getting up a wealthy
English syndicate. He recently sent to America
for El.Ortii, but only received £200, and appeared
despondent at the delay of the Icelanders in
coming to an agreement. The baron had many
wealthy friends in London, who would have
willingly advanced him any sums of money
needed. Among these Is the executor of his
mother's wilt who lives in one of the largest
mansions in Park Lane. Baron Boilleau, how
ever, kept his troubles to himself, and when
found dead in the railroad carriage he had only
one penny in his pocket. His estates in Iceland
and interests !n America, which are intact, are

FRESH AFFT.IVHT OVER THE FrFy^TRB OF PAJf-
London. Jan. 3.— "The Saturday Revierr" to-mor
row will print a remarkably free spoken editorial.
in which It strongly advises Grea; Britain to form a
working alliance with Germany, in ord»r to check
the "continued and apparently Inevitable advance
of the United States Into South America."
According to "The Review,** "it is the wisest
policy for this country to encourage the advance
of Germany In the New World, as the most useful
counterpoise to the overwhelming predominance of
the United States, which is the only other possible
outcome of the existing political conditions." "The
Review" disclaims all hostility to th- United
States, but says:
The solid Interests of our own people, which is
the basis on which the L'nited State* always works,
are the only sure ground on which to build.
Continuing. "The Review" remarks:
If we would only remember th.it the Americans
are to be believed when they describe themselves
as actuated by purely business considerations, we
would save ourst-ives from a large number of
gratuitous humiliations and unprofitable specula
tions in stock having no real market •.•,:;■■ namely,
th« presumed gratitude of, our political and com
mercial rivals. With a strong European power es
tablished in the south and a great world power in
the north, the too exuberant aspirations of pnn-
Americanism would be checked, saving our empire
from a grave menace.
In conclusion. "The Review" points out that the
United States will inevitably gobble up the weak,
turbulent -■■• southward, when It Is certain to
formulate .1 pan- American tariff union against the
remainder of the world, and then, controlling Cuba,
Porto Rico and the Isthmian canal convert the

THD HON. CHARLES RUSSELL COMMITS A SERIOUS
BREACH OP ETIQUBTTBu
London. Jan. 3. — The Hon. Charles Russell, coun
sel for H. St. John Dix, now in custody here on
the charge of larceny committed in the United
States, and with wrecking the Scandinavian-Ameri
can Bank, of Whatcom. Wash., has been guilty of
.i serious breach of diplomatic etiquette and of
breaking a law. Mr. Russell served a writ on the
United States Charge li'Aftaire.-;, Henry White, com
man<!inft him. under various penalties, to deliver
Dix before the King's Bench Division of the High
Court of Justice, to enable the prisoner to appeal
against his extradition, which was granted, Decem
ber 17. at the Bow-st. police court. Representations
on the subject were made at the Foreign Office to
day, where proper apologies were forthcoming.
Writs, Issued by Justice Walton, were served on the
Governor of Hollow ay Jail, where Dix Is confined,
and on the magistrate. Mr. Ifarsham, who granted
the prisoner's extradition, and another writ, which
created the trouble previously referred to. was
mailed to the I'nited states Embassy. Under the
statutes of Queen Anne an offending lawyer who
thus infringes diplomatic usage Is liable to im
prisonment, a fine and corporal punishment. It is
not probable that any of these penalties will be
enforced, but Justice Walton and Mr. Russell are
likely to receive a warning from the Foreign Office.

[BT TEI.EC.RAPH TO THE TRIBUNE. ]
Washington. Jan. .'! — According to trustworthy
Information that reaches the War Department
from Manila, the Insurrection which is devastat
ing some of the southern islands is Incited and
maintained by American renegades, deserters
from L'nited States regiments. This astonishing
fact has been known fur some time to the Amer
ican troops operating against the insurgents, but
has not until now b?en reported to the civil
authorities, who some time ago sent a commis
sion of the most prominent friendly Filipinos
from Manila to induce the natives to cease hos
tilities and enjoy the benefits of civil rule. Pran
ripco Reyes, one of these peace commissioners,
who was sent into Sair.ar by General Smith,
says th"re are some fifty American deserters
with Lukban and that they will not let him
surrender. The chief of the deserters is said to
have formerly belonged to the 15th or Uith In

collect his scattered forces with the hope of

BURGLARS PLUNDER MAXY.
THEY STRIP "HAUNTED" HOUSE OF
FURNITURE— DEMAND EARRINGS
FROM WOMAN* IN BED.
People living on the East Chester Road, about
a mile from West Chester Village, are much
wrought up over a series of robberies that have
occurred there within the last few days. The
house of Mitchell Valentine, a real estate dealer,
was entered on Thursday night. A Mrs. Stan
ley, who is a guest at the house, was awakened
by a noise, and found two men in her room. Mrs.
Stanley was wearing a handsome pair of ear
rings, and the burglars, seeing these, demanded
that she hand them over. Instead of doing so
Mrs. Stanley gave a shriek that aroused the
household. Mr. Valentine is an old man. hut he
got a gun and went burglar hunting. The men,
however, succeeded in getting away. They took
with them jewelry and other articles valued at
Three days ago the burglars paid a visit to
a house that for fifteen years has had the repu
tation of being haunted, and for that reason has
been without a tenant all that time. It is the
property of George W. Stickney. a wealthy coal
merchant. There is a standing offer of rent
free to any one who will occupy the house, but
no one has been found brave enough to accept it.
The burglars, however, either hadn't heard
about the ghost or were willing to take a risk
of meeting one, as they broke In the house and
carried off every movable article they could
find, the plunder amounting to several hundred
dollars in value.
On Sunday morning a visit was paid by the
burglars to the house of Matthias Mennthe, a
German farmer. They entered Mr. Mennthe's
bedroom while he was asleep, and carried off a.
big trunk which stood only six feet from his
bed. This they carried down the road a short
distance and broke it open. There was MOO la
bills in the trunk, and this the robbers carried
away. Mr. Mennthe did not miss the trunk until
10 o'clock on Sunday morning. It was after
ward found by the roadside.
Another sufferer is Watson Bowne. who has
had two valuable horses stolen from his stable
recently. All the robberies hay» occurred within
an area of half a mile.

SHORT— HE PLAYED THK HORSE?.
A shortage of .<:J.L*i>o has been discovered lit
the funds of the postosßce of Ne«--Roohellf». and
Charles B. Freeman, the chief clerk, is misslns.
No trace of him can be found, either by hi 3
relatives or by the postoffice authorities, whom.
It Is* Bald, have a warrant for his arrest. Th*;
missing man is one of the best known young
men of New- Roe In Us He has been connected
with the postorfiee for eight years, and when tIM
late William V. Molloy was Sheriff of West*
Chester « 'ounty. he was his serretary-
A peculiar feature of th* case is that Post*
office Inspector Swift, of this city, went t»
Freeman's cottage in Homestead Park a few
months ago to board. Since the shortage has)
become public it is suspected that the inspectoff
obtained board at the house in order to keep
trace of Freeman and find out how things wera
running. This theory, which is shared by som«
of Freeman's relatives, is strengthened ■>■ thaj
fact that the collapse came soon after the ln«
specter returned to this city. Freeman disap-*
peared suddenly on December :>'•. only a tea?
minutes after Inspector Fuller unexpectedly
dropped into the postofnee to go over his books
and count the cash. Soon after Freeman went
out Bert Rosa, the stamp and general delivery
clerk, also suddenly departed. It was supposed
that Ross had gone with fiiimii and that bat
was implicated with him. but he returned about
three days ago and denied that he had anything:
to do with the shortage.
Postmaster James Ross, who is an uncle to
the stamp clerk, said this afternoon that he be
lieved his nephew went away because he did not
want to be placed in a position where he would
be compelled to give Information to the inspec
tors. He has been relieved from duty, however,
and an investigation of his books will be made.
Postmaster Ross sine- the shortage was dis
covered has learned that Freeman was in th*
habit of playing th«» races, and that he fre
quently opened champagne when out amonit
friends. The National Surety Company is on
Freeman's bond for *.'..."■•»•. so that Postmaster
Ross is fully indemnified. The shortage, how
ever, has left the office In bad shape, as th«
books cannot be balanced for the year until th»
money is made gi od. Freeman's young wife,
who was Miss Emma Montross. of Larchmonr.
has been working heroically to make the short
age up. It was said yesterday that she is now
in position to settle the MS if she could only
reach her husband. She has exhausted every
resource to do so. without avail.
Albert C. Montross. postmaster of Larehment.
Freeman's father-in-law, said last night that
if the surety company would produce Freeman
he would agree to pay the shortage. He said
that he had exhausted every effort to find Free
man. "I don't propose to pay the money." said
Mr. Montross, "unless I can secure the return of
my son-in-law. " Mr. Montross thinks that Free
man has crossed the ocean or rone to South
