Ithaca, N. Y., Dec. 27.After re
maining single for forty-eight years,
devoting the greater portion of her
time to charity work and social reform,
Margaret D. Fisher, a woman of wealth
an'd a leader of society in this city, has
shocked the community by marrying
"Pat" Kelly, her coachman.
The groom had been employed in the
Seaman livery stable, being hired to
work about the barn and to go out with
oiders. More than a year ago he drove
a hack for Miss Fisher while she called
upon the elite of the city and the Cor
nell univeisity faculty. Kelly proved
obliging and when' Miss Fisher wanted
to make calls a second time, she asked
that he be sent. Later she took to rid
ing in a buggy with Kelly as her driv
er, and for several months Kelly had
been regarded at the stable as part of
Miss Fisher's order for a rig. There
was nothing in this that caused com
ment. Miss Fisher was an ardent
worker the Social Service league,
the Congregational church and various
other organizations. She was a promi
nent member of the Woman's club and
participated in the local movements for
reform and elevation of the proletariat.
Being worth half a million and gener
ous, her charities were many. She is
large and han'dsome and is supposed to
have refused many offers of marriage.
Kelly is 43 years old and also large.
His only claim to beauty, however, is
a long blond mustache.*

BIG STOCK BOOM IS
ON IN WALL STREET
Journal Special Servioe.
New York, Dec. 27.Wall street is
in the midst of a full-fledged bull move
ment. Stocks has not had such a boom
since the great inflation of 1900-1901.
A bull movement means prosperity foi
everybody except the bears in the
financial district. For years the brok
ers have suffered from the effects of
the great depression which followed the
Northern Pacific panic of May 9, 1901.
Prices reached their lowest in 1903, but
recovery has since been gradual until
The week before Christmas is usually
a time of depression in Wall street.
This vear, however, proved the excep
tion to the rule. The bull movement
started last week in spite of the high
prices for money. Wall street is now
as lively as it was five years ago. The
transactions are not as large as they
were then, but the public is nust be*
ginning to become interested.
POPE GIYES LIGHT
ON FRENCH RUPTURE
Paris, Dec. 27.A French transla
tion of a Vatican white book regard
ing the separation of church and state
disclaims any intention of replying to
those whom it calls the detractors of
the church, and expresses the desire
not to offend anyone, saying that its
chief obiects are to enlighten the pub
lic regarding the facts, and to prevent
the handing down of misstatements
connected with the history of such an
In the leading chapters an effort is
made to demonstrate that the entire
onus for the -rupture rests with various
French cabinets. The book next refutes
the accusation that separation was
rendered inevitable by the attitude of
the church. Then follow arguments
showing the alleged baselessness of the
charges brought against the church of
acting contrary to the interests of the
MISS CLEYELAND TO
SUE DIVINE SARAH
Journal Special Service.
New York,' Dec. 27.Miss Lucy
Cleveland, a cousin of ex-President Gro
ver Cleveland, has asked Mine. Sarah
Bernhardt to return to her the manu
script of a play she says she placed in
her hands five years ago, and has
threatened, if the manuscript is not
forthcoming shortly, to take legal meas
ures to recover it. Miss Cleveland has
published several books of poems and
has lectured on Egyptology. When
Bernhardt was in America on her last
farewell tour preceding the present one,
Miss Cleveland met her and confided
to her that she had a plav in prepara
tion. Mme. Bernhardt, being anxious
to present a drama written by an
American, offered to read it with that
end in view, Miss Cleveland says. When
Mme. Bernhardt began her engagement
at the Lyric theater, Dec. 11, Miss
Cleveland says she called and tried in
vain to see her. She then called upon
the American managers of the actress
and explained her mission. Still Mme.
Bernhardt could not see her.

Indiana Man Says He Can Run
the Keyboard by Wireless
Journal Special Servioe.
Chicago, Dec. 27.After five years'
labor and experimenting, Elmer A. Bur
lingame, a La Porte, Ind., electrician
and inventor, has announced the com
pletion of apparatus thatf will revolu
tionize present methods of telegraphic
communication and news dissemination.
The invention is a printing wireless
telegraph. The operator who sends mes
sages writes or prints it on an ordinary
typewriter. This prints in the usual
way, but in addition flashes a message
thru space to a receiving station, where
the c'opy is printed on a similar ma
chine exactly like the first copy.
The receiving station must be at
tuned to the incoming Hartzean wave,
this giving secrecy and making it pos
sible to have several sets of instruments
working at once without interference.
This non-interference is said to be so
complete that all sending instruments
may be connected to the same sending
wire and all receiving instruments to
Inventor Burlingame claims messages
may be sent by his printing system
about five times as fast as with the
Morse code? and the necessity of wait
ing for an idle line is done away with.
It is claimed by connecting lineotype
in offices within a radius of 500 miles
it will be possible to operate them
simultaneously from one sending sta
tion. The cost of equipping the receiv
ing station will be about $1,000, while
the cost of the sending station will be
about $2,000. La Porte capitalists, it
is declared, are preparing to build a
factory to manufacture the apparatus.
WRIGHT'S RAGE YIEWS
TO GOST HIS PLACE
Journal Special Servioe.
Washington. Dec. 27.Luke Wright
will not return to the Philippines as
governor-general, it having been de-1
cided by the administration to appoint
James F. Smith, formerly of San
Francisco, but now a member of the
commission, as the successor of Gov-1
ernor Wright. The change is likely to
take place in the near future.
During the last year affairs in the
Philippines have not been running
smoothly, and since Governor Taft left
the islands there has been trouble in
administering the government there.
Governor Wright has not adapted him
self to the conditions the islands. He
is a southern man and has pronounced
ideas on the color question. During
the Taft regime there were receptions
at the Malacanan palace which were
attended by the native men and
women. These occasions were used to
promote harmonious conditions, but
when Governor Wright took charge of
affairs there was an entire change
the social functions. The natives were
not invited to meet the officials and
they have been gradually estranged. It
is declared that Commissioner Smith
possesses qualifications which espe
cially fit him for the discharge of the
duties of governor-general.

A CALIFORNIA TRIP
Winter Months Afford Best Opportunity
for Merchants and Many Others to
Get Away from Business.
From the Commercial Bulletin, Minne
apolis, Saturday, Dec. 2, 1905.
Hundreds of people who read this
paper are planning a trip to the west
coast and a stay of few weeks at least
Wincer is a vacation season and
California the vacation land.
Which way shall we go? That is
the question" many are asking now.
Eight here the "Omaha Eoad" comes
forward with a through car service to
California unsurpassed in the history of
Three times eaeh week a through
tourist car leaves the twin cities over
the Omaha'' line for southern Califor
nio. One goes by Omaha, Ogden,
Sacramento, San Francisco and down
the coast to Los Angeles. Another
goes by Omaha, Kansas City and
thence over the Santa Fe through
Southeastern Colorado, and across New
Mexico and Arizona to Los Angeles.
A third route, which is already prov
ing decidedly popular, is by Omaha,
Ogden" Salt Lake City and down the
New San Pedro and Los Angeles road
recently constructed and known as the
Clark road. This route takes the
tourist through a country full of inter
esting features and much of it but lit
tle known until this railway was built.
It runs just below the famous Death
Valley region' and its equally famous^
mining camps, crossing parts of Utah,
Nevada and California. This is the
shortest through car route between
the twin cities and lower California.
This gives the tourist choice of three
splendid routes, the best through car
service, and all at a reasonable price.
The traveler has no changes to make
after leaving the twite cities. These
cars, their appointments and the serv
ice in every respect, are all that the
most particular and critical travelers
can desire. Home comforts are there
and, as a successful North Dakota mer
chant recently said to the writer. "You
always meet nice people traveling on
the Omaha's tourist sleeping cars.
Tourist cars are the preference of
those numerous people who wish to
travel comfortably at reasonable cost.
Each car has its coloreu porter in
charge. Cars are vestibuled, lighted
with gas, carpeted, have comfortable
mattresses, regular Pullman blank
ets, pillows, berth curtains and clean
bed linen is furnished each night.
These cars are heated in the same
manner as first-class Pullman sleepers,
except that each heater is supplied with
an enclosed oven in which coffee, tea,
etc., may be warmed, and adjoining is
a sink with hot water faucet.
General Passenger Agent T. W.
Teasdale of the Omaha road, who has
given the subject of California travel
much study and who has been greatly
instrumental in bringing the through
car service to its present high stand
ard, is much pleased with the splendid
endorsements the traveling public is
giving the Omaha's fine arrangements
for California travel. He believes that
travel California-ward will show a big
increase this season
