SAVE THE SMEATON
Captain Reid Contracts to Release
the Big Schooner.
TOGS COULD NOT BUDGE HER
He Plans to Pump Air Into the
Hold and Drive Out tbe
Special to The Journal.
Marquette, Mich., Nov. Captain
James Reid, the wrecker of Sarny, Ont.,
has entered into a contract with the Pitts
burg Steamship company, a marine branch
of the steel trust, to release the big
schooner John Smeaton, stranded on the
shore near Au Train, arou_tl the point of
the bay from here. As it Is estimated,
the vessel is worth a quarter of a mil
lion dollars, the contract ls an impor
tant one, yet the manner in which the
captain proposes to free the boat—should
the attempt be successful—is also of
great importance in that it, will mark an
epoch in the . wrecking . profession on the
Some few days ago the tugs Favorite,
Schenck and Boscobel were sent to the
scene of the wreck, but despite all their
efforts they were unable to budge the
schooner. Heavy hausers were fastened
to the stranded craft, ami fast to the
other end t_.e tugs would make a terrific
Jolt as the lines became taut.
Captain Rield's method is entirely dif
ferent. He proposes to pump air Into
the hold of the Smeaton, after securely
calking, every crack and crevice, and in
that manner to force out the water and
float the ship* something, it is said, which
never before has been tried on the lakes.
Four of the schooner's eight compart
ments contain water, the vessel resting
in a depth of seven feet, and when Cap
tain Reid, the steel trust representative,
was at the scene with the tugs it was
found Impossible to lower the water in
the hold more than three inches.
It is thought that a nock is jutting up
through the bottom, or at any rate that
the bottom is badly punctured, and it
is through these holes that Captain Reid
figures the water will be forced out by
the air. The contract price could not be
ascertained, but the deal was closed by
Captain Reid. . It is said the wrecker will
get a snug sum should he be successful,
but that he is to stand the entire ex
pense. The crew of the Smeaton is still
on board, under the principle that pos
session is nine-tenths of the law*, and
coal and other supplies have been taken to
the men from this port. L
THE KILTIES OP TORONTO
The regimental band of the Forty-eighth
Highlanders of Toronto, Canada, will give two
concerts Saturday at the Lyceum theater, un
der the auspices of Glan Gordon, No. 93, Order
of Scottish Clans. The band consists of forty
musicians besides carrying twenty vocalists,
six highland dancers and a bagpipe band.
They come almost directly from the Pan-
American exposition at Buffalo, stopping on
their way at Chicago, where they have been
received with enthusiasm. There is no doubt
but that the band has an established reputa
tion for its fine rendering of the old-world
music, its corps of dancers, and the vocalists.
Dressed In the uniform of the old Highland
regiments, deeds of valor and heroism
has been sung from the time of Wallace, the
kilts,' glengarry bonnets..sporrans and plaids,
they will parade from their car, "Hleland
Laddie," to the theater Saturday about 1
o'clock, under an escort of mounted police,
to show, that the courtesy of Minneapolis is
extended to them.

TWO INDIAN SCHOOLS
What Miss Reed, Superintendent,
Found in the West.
REDS OPPOSED TO EDUCATION
Mr. MoCleary and His Proposed
Membership iv the Commit
tee on Agriculture.
From The Journal Bureau, Boon* AS, Post
Washington, Nov. 28.— 'Estelle
Reed, superintendent of Indian schools,
in her annual report for the last fiscal
year, sums up her observations while in
specting Indian schools during the year.
She did not go into the northwest gener
ally, but visited only the Sac and Fox
schools in lowa and the Oneida school in
Wisconsin. Of the former she says:
This school is situated one mile from To
ledo, lowa. Although In the midst of civil
ization for many .years, these Indians have
made little progress. The majority of the
Indians are opposed to education, and it is
with difficulty ,that the attendance of the chil
dren — obtained for the excellent school
plant which the government has provided.
Several industrial trades are taught, and the
school farm of seventy acres has been well
Of .the Ouelda school the report, says:
This is among the best schools I have vis
ited. The buildings are modern and in good
repair and the surroundings well kept. The
work in the literary and industrial depart
ments is good, but the labilities in the latter
department are inadequate. The manage
ment of the school is satisfactory.
His Committee Candidacy.
Congressman McCleary of Minnesota ar
rived ln Washington Monday, and had not
been here an hour when folks began to
ask him about,his supposed candidacy for
a position on, the committee on agricul
ture. That candidacy, if such a word may
be used to describe Mr. McCleary's posi
tion, has a "string" to it. As was recent
ly said in th/ese dispatches, his committee
assignments, are now of the first order of
Importance and he could not get on the
committee of agriculture without a sac
rifice. Thii; sacrifice, however, he will be
willing to lake, provided it is certain that
the oleo bill is to go to that committee.
He will find out soon where the bill is to
go, and v. ill then make up his mind. If
f by being a member of the agricultural
committee he can aid the farmers of the
northwest, he wants the assignment; but
if his §rolng there will mean nothing
either to them or to him,, he will prefer
to stay where.he is. Mr. McCleary says
that he will make no active canvass. The
case will be laid before the speaker in
due .time, should conditions justify, and
there the matter will end. A number of
the prominent friends of the oleo bill, ln
and out of congress, have asked Mr. Mc-
Cleary to introduce the bill in the house,
and he has consented. It will follow the
general lines of the old Grout bill.
Resort for Consumptives.
Simon Berliner, United States consul at
the Canary Islands,, says that within the
past few years the islands have become
one of the most noted and successful re
sorts for consumptives in the whole
world. The current issue of the public
health reports of .the marine hospital ser
vice gives several pages to Mr. Berliner's
descriptions of the wonderful climate and
To Control Trusts.
Representative Minor of Wisconsin, has
revived his proposed constitutional
amendment for the control of the trusts,
and will introduce a bill covering It as
soon as congress meets. He would place
the control of trusts and large corpora
tions under the federal government, and
allow the states to regulate the same
within their respective borders where con
gress fails to act.
Out of Political Influence.
The president has amended civil service
rules to provide that whenever the posi
tion of agent at any Indian agency should
be discontinued and his duties devolve on
the superintendent of the Indian school,
the agent may be protected by the civil
service. This order will be of interest
all over the northwest, and will give an
opportunity for removing Indian agents
from the influence of politics. The num
ber of Indian agencies has gradually been
reduced from fifty-seven in 1893 to
forty^nlne at present. It is understood
to- be Ja • part of- the I president's- policy
to 'disregardl .political considerations in
dealing \ with, the Indians, S \ precise
ly as such considerations have been
disregarded in dealing with the Fili
pinos. The superintendents!: at .train
ing .! schools are classified under .-:i- civil
service rules and appointments 1 to these
places are made by promotion of teachers,
irrespective of political consideration*.
The intention is to retain in the classified
service such agents as shall prove their
efficiency and ability.

IN IRON AND STEEL
No Indication of Early Subsidence
ALL RECORDS LAID IN THE SHADE
What Is More, a Still Larger Bail.
■\ ness Is Expected by Members
of the Trade.
New York, Nov. 28.—Discussing the
present condition of iron and steel, the
Iron Age says: • v„
Nothing has occurred to indicate any dan
ger of an early subsidence of the great ac
tivity which characterizes the iron and steel
trades. Not only are more iron and steel
being made and consumed in the United
States than at any time during the history
or any other country, but members of the
trade are beginning to prophesy a still lar
ger business the coming year. The full ca
pacity of the blast furnaces and steel works
completed and in process of erection, seems
to be especially needed to meet the require
ments of the country for the greater part of
the first six months of 1902. This is as far
as ordinary human foresight can carry prog
nostications as to business. It is seldom that
indications for an approaching year point so
strongly to heavy trade as at the present
time. Many branches of business report an
unusual number of inquiries now coming up
relative to material .for. j projected improve
ments. It might be assumed, in view of the
occurrences of the past two years, that the
expansion in the American iron. trade had
reached, its culmination; but so far, no evi
dence can be seen pointing to such a conclu
sion. , v~"-">Ti
: An active .condition of business continues
to be reported in pig iron and stocks at fur
naces are known to be steadily diminishing.
The furnace companies are handling their
business conservatively, and, while they have
made slight advances, are disposed to dis
courage anything which might lead to specu
lation. More business has been done iii for
eign billets for Importation. While manu
facturing establishments are trying to break
records in endeavoring to meet the demands
of the trade, they are harassed by exasper
ating occurrences which interfere with satis
factory operations. The coke situation has
not improved as it should have done by this
time, and blast furnaces are still being crip
pled by inability to secure fuel, a rather
critical condition, of affairs, being reported
from Chicago, where four furnaces are idle
on this account, just when their production
is greatly needed. :
The scrap situation is attracting a great
deal of interest. The rolling mills on one
side and the dealers on the other, appear to
•be arraying their forces for a contest, as
both parties are endeavoring to control the
trade in their special interests. The situa
tion is shrouded in mystery, but it is ex
pected that developments shortly will be made
as the result of meetings which are taking

BOERS YET AFIELD
Seventy Commandoes and Bands
Still to Be Reckoned With.
ONLY COURSE FOR THE BRITISH
It Is to "Hustle" tbe Boers aud Grad-
ually extend tbe Cleared
Mow York Sua Soma fat Service.
London, Nov. 28.—The correspondent of
the Times at Pretoria says the Boers are
being gradually confined in narrower
areas, and are consequently less able to
avoid the British troops. There are still
seventy recognized commandoes and bands
in the field, the number of men each
ranging from 50 to 400. Twenty-six of
these forces are in the Transvaal, thirty
one in the Orange River colony and thir
teen.in Cape Colony. -■ -Vrx ... ;:z t;
Scouts all over the country inform the
burghers of the movements of t.he British
columns and the Boers are generally able
to move off 'before the British troops
reach them. The separate commandoes in
the.southeast Transvaal are near enough
together to concentrate at twenty-four
hours' notice and to equal in numbers the
British columns. "."-: 3sjLvi V: '3
The only course open to the British,
says the correspondent, is.to "hustle" the
•Boers and gradually .extend the cleared
areas. The work Is -slow, but it is sure
and there Is no justification for the impa
tience shown at home in.regard, to the
progress of the campaign. The corre
spondent urges the necessity of more men.
He says that at present the "striking
arm" of; .the 'British forces numfbers 45,000.
BOER VICTORY CERTAIN
This the Assertion of One Who Has
| Collected War Funds.
London, Nov. 28.—The Times quotes an
Interview in a Nantes newspaper with a
man named Sandberg, who is described as
an aide de camp of the Boer Commandant,
General Louis Botha. Sandberg has been
touring the continent to collect Boer
funds. He declared that the ultimate vic
tory of the Boers was,, certain. Asked
what peace terms the Boers would ac
cept, he said they would agree to one con
dition' only—that the British quit South
Africa. He added: "Their recognition of
our autonomy would be insufficient. We
must be masters of the Cape as well as of
the Transvaal." . • ■■',-'*
Sandberg said that If there was a time
when for humane reasons and in order-to
spare their own people tortures, the Boers
were willing to contemplate a less advan
tageous peace, that was long passed.
Americans Report on - Their Work
Prospecting for Gold. —,
St. Petersburg, Nov. : 28.— N. A. Egbert of
Springfield, Mass., and W. S. McCormick of
Utah are here on their return ■ from the
Ochlnsk district of the Yeniszk government,
where they have been prospecting for gold
This is an old Russian .gold field. Messrs.
Egbert and McCormick, with their Harvard
classmates of 1900, Brown of New York and
Porter of Niagara Falls, are the first Ameri
cans who have turned their attention to It.
They have spent a year and a half In the
gold fields and are returning to utilize their
knowledge financially. Mr. Egbert reports
that rye flour -has risen on account of the
crop failure during twelve months from 15
copecks per- pood to a rouble, in the country
where his party has been. Another Ameri
can, Mr: Keating of Providence, is putting
in a dredge In the same territory. The Rus

NEW LEASE OF LIFE
Ruiuor That the Notorious' Standard
Theater Will Reopen.
It is rumored in police circles that the
Standard theater,- on Third street, recently
closed by order of Mayor Ames, is to be re
opened Monday. A man named Randall, who
owned the theater recently burned at Hur
ley, Wis... Is said to have secured a license
for the reopening of the Standard.
T. R. Brown, the mayor's private secretary,
had heard nothing to-day about the open -
ing of the theater. - It was a matter, he said,
which would be passed upon first by the
council license committee. ;
Washington Small Talk.
Secretary Hitchcock has -decided to give a
hearing to the dead and down contractors on
the White Earth reservation, upon whom ']
demand for. payment for green timber was
recently made by Captain Mercer. The date
of the hearing has not been set, but it will
probably be about Dec. 10. Ray ,W. Jones,
of : Minneapolis, Is most heavily concerned,
as the department has demanded about $30,000
from his for green timber.
Representative McCleary called on Indian
Commissioner Jones Monday and urged a
recommendation to congress through the sec
retary for the improvement of ■ the school
plant at Pipestone Indian reservation, by an
addition to the boys' dormitory and the con
struction of an industrial workshop. Com
missioner Jones is favorable to the plan, as
the Pipestone school is*in a locality where
pupils may be put to work with farmers dur
ing recesses, thus carrying out his new policy
of making the Indian youth work for a liv
ing as far as possible.

Adorable Millinery Distracting.
The Schubert club has issued an edict that
the members must either remove their hats
at the fortnightly meetings or sit in the rear
of the hall. Miss Elsie M. Shawe, president,
stated at the gathering yesterday, a con
templation of fashionable millinery does not
aid in acquiring a musical duration. -One
is likely to detract from the other," she
said, "and the woman whose knowledge is
filtered through the graceful trimmings of an
'adorable bonnet' Is likely to lose many of
the precepts of the muse."

convents to the womna suffrage movement.
In recent legislation affecting factories - and
workshops, women's Interests have received
such scanty consideration that the worker.*

make their influence felt. The Lancashire fe

Yorkshire are planning a similar memorial.
The leaders of the movement eagerly wel
come the new supporters and are engaged
in organizing local branches in order to bring
pressure to bear on members of parliament ln

society in support of woman suffrage and
arranging public meetings for the winter in
the principal cities and towns and fore* their
claims on th-; house of commons.
