Steps From the School of Holy Angels Will Com
plete Her Education in Paris.
AWARDED FOUR GOLD MEDALS AT FORT LEE INSTITUTE.

New York, Juno 21. Lillian Solomon
daughter of Lillian Russell, 18 years old,
and promising all the beauty of her mother,
has graduated at the Institute of the Holy
Angels, Fort Lee, X. J.
Miss Solomon had for a graduating com
panion Miss Mamie Burgard. Bishop
'John J. O'Connor of Newark presided and
.conferred the diplomas and honors.
Miss Russell was a delighted spectator.
She heard her daughter sing with a clear,
high soprano, saw her assume the role of
Cleopatra In the performance, receive four
fold medals as well as her diploma, and
at the conclusion saw fifty tearful girls
kiss her farewell.
In the exhibition-rooms the art and
needlework of the pupils were displayed.
Miss Solomon showed examples of paint
ing In water colors and oil, specimens of
burnt wood and burnt leather, and several
botanical and geographical charts. The
charts looked like colored engravings. The
young lady counted among her accomplish
ments a speaking and writing knowledge
of French, German and Spanish.
Several days ago Miss Solomon gave a
farewell dinner to her associates of the
Echo Club, an organization which pub
lishes the academy's monthly magazine.
I The sisters permitted the use of one of the
a. dinner prepared and served by Sherry.
Miss Russell flrot sent her daughter to
the Fort Leo consent twelve years ego,
and there she has remained eter since.
"What shall I do now?" repeated Miss
Solomon, disentangling herself from a re
gretful 6-year-old who protested against
her departure. "I shall take a sort of post
graduate course in Paris under my aunt's
care, and after that we'll decide. I'm de
termined to be worthy of this dear old
school and these sweet old sisters who
have cared for me so tenderly and edu
cated me with such pains."
When the two graduates, "Vln selecting
their aledlctorlee, told of their regret at
leaving, most of the nuns were in tears.
Miss Solomon has embraced Catholicity
and been formally received into the church.
Madrid Alone Has Subscribed the
Amount Asked For Eight
PROVINCES TO THE FRONT.
Although Supposed to Be Exhaust
ed, They Have Asked lor
Large Part of the Loan
All Europe Amazed.
SPECIAL BY CABLE.
Madrid, June ZL Spain has not only star
tled Itself, but all financial Europe, by the
colossal success of its application for the
S3S,C0O,00O-peseta subscription loan. In
American money this sum. in round figures,
la equivalent to f7O.G0O.00O.
Only a few weeks have passed since the
loan was advertised, and already Madrid
alone has subscribed 2,2,000,000 pesetas, or
eight times the amount required. Added to
this capital subscription, the Provinces
have applied for 1,441,000.000 pesetas of the
proposed Issue. Four milliards, all together,
have been subscribed in Spain.
Not sines the time of the Armada, when
Spain was in its heyday of power and
wealth, has such a revelation of its re
sources been made. One of the surprising
features also is the fact that the supposed
exhausted Provinces have contributed such
a large share in the application.
The city of Barcelona has constituted a
syndicate with 240,000,000 pesetas, or J2S.
000,000, capital to reconstruct the Spanish
fleet. This Is entirely foreign to the na
tional loan contemplated. With this loan
It is proposed to strengthen the Spanish
Navy by the addition of eight battleships,
coast-defonso ships and armored cruisers
and ten more auxiliary cruisers and first
class torpedo boats.
At present there are only one flrst-class
and two third-class battleships la the
Spanish Navy. Spain also has but four
armored cruisers, one first-class cruiser, ten
second-class and nineteen third-class; Its
total alignment of marine defenses consists
of 154 vessels of all descriptions.
To man this fleet there are in service less
than 3,000 seamen and marines. The
J strength of the Spanish Nayv will be in-
creased- pne-third, if not almost one-half,
hv the proposed addition.

Washington, June 2L Colonel Ware, the
newly appointed Commissioner of Pensions,
is already telling his friends In confidence
that he Is not "stuck on his new Job."
He says he is required to listen to all
kinds of heart-rending tales, and Is con
fronted with schemes and questionable
propositions from claimants, who assume a
stand-and-dellver attitude in applying for
pulsion allowances, Commissioner Ware
dined with the President a few nights ago
end the President, It is said, asked the new
Commissioner how he liked the position up
"It is less tempting now than It was
when I consented to take the place," he re
plied, "but I have hopes that it will be
come less disagreeable as I become better
acquainted with the class of customers I
have to deal with,"
'That Is a very encouraging way to look
at if eaid the President- 'The chances
are, however, that the longer you serve
the more difficulties you will have to en
counter." It is said that the President's reply
somewhat puzzled the Commissioner, and
the latter was confused as to whether it
was an indirect request for his resignation.
All doubt on that subject was removed a
moment later, when the President recalled
an incident of the first interview they had,
when the place was tendered to Colonel
"You are in for It now, and you must
stick It out." said the President. "Ton will
remember." he added, "our previous con
versation?" On that occasion Colonel Warn-fcultAtl
