A woman has just been appointed a mem
ber of the board of regents of the state
university by the governor of Wiscontin,
under the provisions of a law recently passed
by the legislature. Illinois has recently had a
woman trustee of its state university, such
a choice having been made in 1596. In the
latter case the selection was made In the
usual way for an elective office, through the
nomination of % woman in the convention of
the party which later carried the election. In
Illinois women have the right to vote for
university trustees, and this probably in
clined the political managers to look with
favor upon the idea of giving a place on the
ticket to a representative of the sex. In
"Wisconsin, however, no such consideration
tntered into the case, and the law authorizing
the appointment Just made was not passed
In "recognition" of any element of voters.
Both Incidents illustrate the growing tendency
toward the abolition of the sex line in mat
ters of education. State universities are open
to young women as well as to young men,
and It is rightly felt that both sexes should
be represented in their government and direc

Cape Town, Sept. 2.—The military ad
ministration has determined, it is said, to
deport all the Boers in the reconcentra
tion camps, numbering upward of 100,000,
to garrisoned towns on the coast where
food is more readily available. The
railways, thus relieved, probably will
suffice to supply food for the population

BUSY AT DUQUESNE
Strikers Able to Induce Only Two
Men to Come Out.
BREAK LIKELY AT McKEESPORT
President Burns Expects to Hear
From Mr. Schwab To-day On
His New Peace Project.
Pittsburg, Sept. 2. — The steel strikers
who have been trying; for a week to get
the employes of the Carnegie plant at
Duquesne to come out made a last stand
to-day and failed. A parade from Mc-
Keesport to meet the workmen on their
way to the mill at 6 o'clock this morning
and induce them to remain away, had been
arranged, but when the hour arrived there
were no marchers and the parade was
abandoned. The fight had been made in
the open hearth department but notwith
standing a house-to-house canvass by the
strikers last night, only two men refused
to return to work. To-day the works are
in full operation and the strikers admit
that with their failure to get the men out
there is little hope of closing the plant.
Break Impending at McKeesport.
Dissatisfaction is increasing at Mc-
Keesport more particularly since it has
been shown that all promises regarding
the bringing out of the Carnegie employes
have practically been without foundation
and predictions are made that a general
break in the strike at that place is not
improbable before many days.
The Monongahela blast furnace depart
ment of the National Tube Works is
wortiing full and an effort is to be made
this week to beat the output record since
the strike started. At the Demmler tin
plate plant everything has been made
ready for an early start. This may occur
this week and the management promises
that when operations are resumed it will
be with the assistance of a large number
of old hands.
The strike began its third month to-day
with few indications of early peace. It
has settled down to a question of endur
ance, with both sides making claims of
advantages gained. President Burns is
working on his peace project and is hope
ful that his efforts will yet be success
ful. He expects to hear from President
Schwab to-day in reference to the new
plan said to have been submitted to him
BAY VIEW DEVELOPMENTS
Will the Men Return to Work; With
out Shaffer's Order?
Milwaukee, Sept. 2.—lt was learned to
day that one of the members of the
Amalgamated Association at Bay View is
circulating a petition to secure signatures
of all who 'are in favor of returning to
work without waiting for orders from the
national headquarters. The result of the
work in this line cannot be forecast at
present. Talks with a number of the
men indicate that many of them are not
In a hurry to return to work, while a
number are non-committal. Another
meeting of the Bay View lodge will be
teld next Saturday when regular business
will be transacted. It is not yet known
whether or not action on returning to
work will be taken at this meeting.

the national officers of the Amalgamated
Association of Iron and Steel Workers had
misrepresented the attitude of the United
Real Progress in China
Shanghai, Sept. 2.—An edict issued recently ordains a new system of official
examinations. It abolishes the literary essay and substitutes therefor a practical
discussion of three classes of subjects, namely, Chinese affairs, western matters and
classical ligature. This applies to the prefectural, provincial and metropolitan ex
aminations. The edict also abolishes the ancient military examinations and sub
stitutes practical training in military science.
Revolution in Persia
Teheran, Sept. 2.—A widespread revolutionary movement is going on in Persia
fostered by discontent with the government on account of the new loan negotia
tions with Russia. The grand vizier is accused of selling the country and failing to
make reforms. Martial law has been proclaimed in the capital and environs. The
agitation, it is said, proceeds from the entourage of the shah, who frequently finds
threatening letters upon his writing table.
Fresh Cramps for "Sick Man"
Parts, Sept. 2.—Advices received here from Turkey indicate a disquieting in
ternal situation. Disorders and military uprisings are reported in Armenia Mace
donia and the neighborhood of Mecca. The son of a high functionary was carried
off by brigands near 1 Adrianople, who fought a bloody engagement with the troops
sent against them.
A dispatch from Salonica says that Nouri Bey, aide de camp of the sultan, who
was sent to investigate the brigandage in Albania, has been killed by Albanians.
It is also said that the Turkish troops at Prisrend, Albania, 'and Uskub are riot
ing because they have not been paid.
Turkish Ambassador Expelled
Paris, Sept. 2.—The result of Munir Bey, the Turkish ambassador to France
coming to Paris, in spit* of the rupture of Franco-Turkish relations and holding
a fete in the most open way at the Turkish embassy yesterday in honor of the an
niversary of the sultan'B accession to the throne, Has been that the French gov
ernment sent him, the same afternoon, a request to leave France immediately, and
Munir Bey departed for Switzerland that evening.
M. Constans, the French ambassador to Turkey, had another conference with
the French foreign minister. M. Delcasse, to-day. The government of France is
determined to compel Turkey to fulfill her entire obligations. Unless the sultan
yields shortly he will find the bill against him increased by a number of other
outstanding claims of Frenchmen, which will make an appreciable addition to the
sum now demanded.
Was Canadian Census "Cooked?"
ftmw York Sun Special Stwvtao.
Windsor, Ont.. Sept. 2.—There is a well founded report In circulation among
Ottawa politicians that a royal commission will soon be authorized by parliament
to investigate the charges of gerrymandering which are being boldly made against
the Laurier government by. leading members of the conservative party. It is al
leged that the figures obtained in the recent census of Canada have been fearfully
and wonderfully "cooked" in order that the majority which the Laurier governor
now holds in eastern Canada may be increased by nine seats, while in the west,
where the conservatives hold the balance of power, the returns indicate a marked
falling off in the population and, of course, a corresponding decrease in the mem
bership of conservative parliamentary seats.
France and Russia vs. England

Paris, Sept, 2.—Abbas Pasha, . the khedive of Egypt, has arrived in Paris from
Divonne. Political gossip connects the visit of the khedive with that of the czar.
It is believed; that both France and Russia are conniving "against England in the
Orient and that the friendship of Oriental potentates iB greatly desired.
Danish West Indies to Be Ours
London, Sept. 2.—A dispatch to a news agency from Copenhagen to-day says the
new Danish ministry has decided to accept the United States' offer of 16,000,000
kroner for the Danish West Indies, thus announcing as an accomplished fact what the
press dispatches said tlie ministry would do.

Chicago, Sept. 2.—Organized workmen
in Chicago and vicinity celebrated Labor
Day with numerous picnics and a huge
parade to-day. The demonstrations were
blessed with clear skies and pleasant tem
perature. The parade was about three
miles in length and it is estimated that
25,000 trades unionists and musicians were
in line. Buildings were not decorated,
but banks, the Board of Trade, the Stock
Exchange and business houses generally
were closed. The South Chicago steel
workers who refused to obey Chaffer's
strike order were not invited to partici
pate in the demonstrations. They enjoyed
themselves at a picnic arranged by their
A feature of the parade although not
observable to spectators who lined the
sidewalks, was the union label attached to
every garment, cap and shoe worn by the
marchers. A critical committee had'seen
to it that the parade should represent
dyed-in-the-wool unionism, and even the
horses were not allowed to march unless
it was shown their shoes had been put on
by union smiths. Among the speakers at
the picnics were Senators Mason and Cul
lom of Illinois, and Mayor Harrison.

Plttsburg, Sept. 2.—Pittsburg was given
over to-day to the "sturdy sons of toil,"
who paraded the streets many thousands

the procession were workmen from almost
every trade in this great industrial cen
ter. The parade started about 11 o'clock
and was in four divisions. The first
division was made up of the Amalgamated
strikers, with President Shaffer in com
mand. It was one of the largest divisions
and the striking steel workers were
greeted with enthusiasm all along the
route. A feature of the parade was a
long line of industrial exhibits illustrating
the active workings of trades and busi
ness of all kinds. The parade was inter
spersed with many bands. The best of
feeling prevailed. With the dismissal
of the parade there was a general exodus
to Ross Grove, where a reunion of the al
lied trades of western Pennsylvania was

After the appointment of a committee

The principal question to come up for

engineer of St. Paul whose practical
knowledge will be of value in the manage
ment of an oil company; and the treasurer
is John Wilde, formerly vice-president of
the First National Bank of Monrovia, Cal
ifornia. This company has plans for ship
ping Texas oil to the northwest for gen
