All day yesterday Chief Antonio, head

hunters, like Achilles, sulked In his tent
In tho village of the Bontocs at the Phil

From "early mom till dewy eve" the
unadorned savage remained within his

cutlet proffered to him by one of his sub

Antonio's bad sorts Mere Induced by
dread and uncertainty as to the outcome
of the official Inspection of the pantless
Igorrotcs, which Is scheduled for this
morning by the Board of "Lady Managers.
Upon their verdict, he realized, might
hinge tho final decision of a paternal
government In the matter of clothing the
naked at the village.
Bright and early this morning the hosts
of tho Lady Managers are expected to in
vade the village of the Igorrotes to deter
mine whether their present costume is suf
ficient or whether it needs the additions
prescribed by polite society of the Occi
dent. Nor wa3 Antonio the only dejected mem
ber. Doctor T. K. Hunt, to whom the
simple head-hunters look up as guide and
philosopher, also realised that upon the
decision of the Board of Lady Managers
might depend the end of what an Exposi
tion official has termed the "navel ex
hibit" at the Fair.
The feeling that their sartorial equip
ment has been under fire has apparently
spread among the decollete savages, and
several of them were seen yesterday with
a few simple additions to their already
scant attire, which they were not wont
formerly to affect. More than one wore a
shirt, without any other garment, how
ever, to tuck the nether ends in. and one
native proudly strutted about with a loin
cloth and a pair of black socks constitut
ing his entire costume.
YANKEE DELEGATIONS COULD
NOT COOK ON FAIR SITE
Connecticut and Abode Island Special
Train Moved Outside for the
Preparation of Menla.
Gourmets of tho Bhode Island and
Connecticut delegations from the Republi
can Convention at Chicago, who cams to
St. Louis in their special train,1 believe
tliat the World's Fair exercised a mild
form of discrimination against them.
The delegations brought with them
their own cooks and during their stay at
the World's Fair were to have lived In
tlielr coaches and partake of their princi
pal meals there, the expert cook? being on
"hand to prepare palatable dishes for them.
But the very first meal the cooks started
to. prepara'they were interrupted In. They
were told that the cooking of meals In
the cars could not be allowed, as it con
stituted an act prejudicial to the restau
rant concessionaires on the site.
The order struck dismay In the camp of
the delegates, but thalr arguments were
of no avail with the inspector, and the
cooks were forced to abandon the basting
spoons and pots and pans and smother
the fires In the ranges. Then the dele
gates banded together and swore that
they would dine off the especial dishes of
their own cooks, or right valiantly starve
But as hunger, grew on th.m and the
inspector proved unrelenting it became
necessary to- find- a way out of utter star
vation. One genius suggested that they
could eat. drink and be -merry and still
prove steadfast to their sworn vow by
moving tho special train to the switch out
side tho Fair grounds, where they might
cook their meals and eat them without
any mandate from tho Fair Intervening.
This was done and all through their
stay they ate outside and slept inside tho
grounds in their train. The delegates de
parted last night on their train for home,
but cherished no resentment because of
the enforcement of the Exposition rule.
The Massachusetts delegates also de
parted last night, as did most of the del
egations. But a comparatively few, most
ly from the Eastern cities, remain, and
for these the Exposition management has

SHOWN B? BAGGAGE
Six Thousand Pieces Are Handled
Daily at the Union
GREAT INCREASE IN TRUNKS.
Xinety Per Cent of the Luggage
Received Is Destined for St.
Louis Gain in Stop-Over
That section of the Union Station which
Is set apart for the handling of baggage
has probably felt the result of the
World's Fair as much as any other place
In the city.
Last night 6,000 trunks were piled in reg
ular rows on the track floor of the sta
tion. The rows reached from the Midway
to the end of the sheds, a distance of
more than 600 feet, or an eighth of a mile.
To-night all these trunks will have been
dispatched to their various destinations,
going to every State in the Union and to
many foreign countries.
"Last month we lmndled an average of
more than 6,000 pieces of baggage a day,
a net gain of 69,000 pieces over the same
month last year," said Dennis O'Toole,
general baggage agent, last night. "This
month the average will be about 9,000
pieces a day, and I am ' expecting the
monthly average to increase until Novem
ber, which I am told. Is the best month
for world's fairs.
"We also handle tho United States malls.
This is the season at which the mails usu
ally are the lightest, but the World's Fair
Increase has made the malls almost as
heavy as is usual in the busy season.
"A peculiar feature of the baggage busi
ness this summer and one which rerves to
show the popularity of the Fair la the In
crease in the stopover business. As a
general rule, EO per cent of the baggage
that comes into this station goes right
out again. That I1, it is unloaded from
one train and put on another. It is
the baggage of pereons who are going
through the city, or who stop only a few
"Since the opening of the Fair, not
withstanding the Immense Increase in the
bulk of the baggage. 80 per cent of it stops
in St. Louis. Nearly eyeryone who passes
through, stops to see the Fair, and as a
rule they leave one or two of their trunks
on our hands.
"The subway is not In use yet, and we
have been able to meet, every emergency
that has arisen without It. It has be
come necessary to more than double the
force of men employed In the baggage
room, and we wi'l put additional men on
as the need arises. The pneumatic tube
service which has been Installed is not
yet In operation, as It is to be used In
carrying checks from the counter in the
baggage-room to the subway."
The baegage department has been for
tunate. Mr. O'Toole thinks, in handling
the vast amount of baggage which has
passed through Its hands. Very few com
plaints have been received and In the ma
jority of cases where an error has been
shown, it was found not to be the fault
of the St. Louis office.
EFFORTS TO FIND
LOOMIS ARE VAIN
Officials Refuse to Believe He
Has Been Harmed, Although
Gone for a Week.
Paris, June 26. Not a word was re
ceived to-day regarding the whereabouts
of Kent J. Loomls, brother of Francis B.
Loomls, American Assistant Secretary of
State, who disappeared shortly before or
after the arrival of the North German
Lloyd steamer Kaiser Wllhelm II at
Plymouth June 20.
Although midnight to-night marks a
week since the disappearance of Mr.
Loomls, the officials still cling to the be
lief that he will turn up when the ef
fects of his abstraction have worn off.
Their belief is due to a careful deduc
tion from the series of circumstances re
lated by W. J. Ellis, his companion on
board the steamer, and by Gustav Flamm
of San Francisco, who was a fellow-passenger.
This process of deduction prac
tically excludes the likelihood that Loomls
fell overboard. It leads to the acceptance
of Flamm's statement that he saw
Loomls get off at Plymouth.
Accordingly, a minutely circumstantial
description of Loomls has been forwarded
to Joseph Stephens, .American. Consul at
Although they are satisfied th.it Loomls
was not lost from the Kaiser Wllhelm II.
the officials recognize the possibility that
some harm may have befallen him after
he landed at Plymouth. However, they
consider this possibility rathor remote.
Nevertheless, the complete absence of
clewa after a week of continued effort to
find Mr, Loomls-Tnakes -the case one -of
CUBAN BICE TRADE
Monopoly of Island Market Pre
dieted for States of Texas,
J.ouLsiana and South
AMERICAN PRODUCT SUPERIOR
Report of Department of Com
merce and Labor Indicates
of Gulf States Industry.
Washington. June 26. Advice received
at' the Department of Commerce and
Labor from United States Consul Bachr
at Clenfuegos, Cuba, Indicate that the In
troduction of American rice Into the Cuban
trade has had nn auspicious beginning,
and the salesmen who uru Introducing It
confidently predict that within a year
American rice will supply half the Cuban
demand for, this staple article of food, and
within two years will have practically a
monopoly of the market.
According to Mr. Baehr there are many
logical reasons why this should be so,
among the most potent of which are the
nearness of the 'American rice fields to
this market, the various lines of trans
portation between Gulf ports and Cuba,
the exlstenco of reciprocal trade relations
between the two countries and an earnest
desire on the part of the Cuban merchants
to buy their food products' of the United
FOOD FOR ALL CLASSES.
"Perhaps In no country In the world,"
adds Mr. Baehr, "does rice enter Into the
dally consumption of food to a greater
extent than In Cuba. Here all clases con
sume It. Indeed, among the peasantry, or
country people, where wheat bread is
scarcely used at all, rice Is veritably their
staff of life. It is eaten at every meal, and
no one knows better than the Cuban
housewife Us varied and acceptable us.es.
"It has long been the custom with the
provision houses of Cuba to purchase their
rice In Hamburg and Liverpool, but thoy
are now showing a disposition to buy
nearer home, especially In view of the tact
that the cultivation of rice Is rapidly be
coming one of the leading Industries In
certain of the Gulf States and in view of
the further consideration that the Cuban
consumer, as he becomes acquainted with
the superior quality of the American rice,
prefers It to the rice of India, China or
japan. In the comparatively small sales
thus far made of Amerlcnn rice In Cuba
It has given universal satisfaction, the
people claming that It possesses a richer
navor ana greater nutriment man me
SOUTH SHOULD CONTROL MARKET.
"If the rice-growers of South Carolina.
Louisiana and Texas will make a deter
mined effort now to capture tho Cuban
trade they should, with proximity to the
market and a preferenlal tariff in their
favor, have little difficulty In winning
against European competition. The time
The report closes with a statement that
the Cuban merchant Is used to the Euro
pean way of transacting business, namely,
payment upon receipt of merchandise. The
Cuban desires the goods actually in his
possession before giving a draft for same,
and the advice of the Consul to the rice
merchants of the South who desire to
compete for this trade would be to follow
this time-honored custom, resting confi
dent that the consignee Is a responsible
person who will meet the obligation at the
JEWISH RABBIS MEET.
Fifteenth Annual Conference Be
gins at Louisville.
Louisville, Ky June 26. One hundred
and fifty rabbis, each representing one or
more cqngregatlons of the Reformed Jew
ish Church In America, are in Louisville
to attend the fifteenth annual conference
of the rabbis, which was opened to-day.
First, there was a meeting of the Ex
ecutive Board to map out the work of the
business wssions, which will be held dally
June 27, 23, 23 and 0. The conference was
Inaugurated with a night service at
Temple B'rlth Shotum, when the delegates
were welcomed to Louisville.
Rabbi David Phllipscn of Cincinnati
preached the conference sermon. The
conference will consider two of the most
important questions raised s.nce the foun
dation of the Reformed Jewish Church
tho Sabbath observance and establishment
of a synod.
The report of the Committee on Sab
bath, headed by Rabbi Jacob Voorsanger
of San Francisco, will deal with the merits
of Saturday and Sunday as Sabbath days,
there being a desire for uniform observ
ance of one or other of those da vs.
The Committee on Synod, headed bv
Rabbi H. G. Enelow of Louisville, It Is
("understood, favors the establishment of
a synod to act as tne central governing
body of the church, with the view of es
tablishing uniformity of church work.
Hitherto, the reformed Jewish congrega
tions have been absolutely Independent.
It was at first thought that the annual
conference of rabbis would serve the pur
pose of a synod, but many rabbis believe
such has not proved to be the case.
On both the Sabbath and svnorl nus-
tlons there Is a .divergence of views, and
the outcome In each case is problematical.

At the morning session twenty-eight
men and women were In one gallery, and
the first thirteen runs of the orchestra
contained abotitf.-OO men, women and
children. At til" afternoon session there
were only about seventy-fUe more than at
the morning service.
Twice loud hisses greeted Dottle. The
llrst lime was when, he said:
"I am nut going to say anything about
King Edward until I set back to JCion
City. I said King Edward has jio piety to
spare and you can find my exact words
In 'The Leaes of Healing.' Zlon's orgnn.
In fact, he, I said, was like unto the
condition of Job, who, you remember, es
caped by the skin of his teeth."
Loud hisses and some faint applause
followed this, and Dowle went on:
"Two weeks ago to-day King Edward
went down to the Duke of Devonshire's
to see some of his horses that were to
run the following day, to get some point
ers. This Is the man who Is called De
fender of the Faith."
Hearty applause greeted a man who
"And he's a good judge of horsei, too."
The second time that the meeting threat
ened to become stormy was when Dowle
again attacked King Edward, calling him
"an anointed and cunning rascal." Wav
ing his hands In the air, and raising his
voice to a, screech, he strode up and uown
the platform, saying:
"Tnere never was a viler Prince cursed
England than he who Is now King Ed
ward. It's true and I can prove It."
Half the audience hissed loudly, and
this seemed to enrage Dowle. He ttembied

most for Clod's rule. I love Theodore
Roosevelt, but If he does a great wrong
I'm not afraid to tell him so: But he Is
too good a man to do wrong."
There were some murmurs at this, but
no itpp'attsc and no hissing.
Then he went on to criticise politics and
political managers, haying politicians are
like a pack of cards, the more you shuffle
them the dirtier they get.
"1 have been asked when I will stop
fighting," he continued. "Not until" I
have got the devil licked. And until I
have got him licked. I will keep on licking

"I would like to save everyone, even the
young fellows out of those literary scav

get to heaven I think I should like to go

Some surprise was expressed at the
opening of the morning session when
"I am not going to be here long, for I
have much personal business to attend
to," but he quickly caught himself and
said: "Or, rather. Zlon's business."
On the platform, seated on either side
of Dowle, were his wife, his son, A. J.

said to have devoted herself and her

Religious Services Held in the
Jerusalem Concession for
Those Who Live at the
Within the walls of Jerusalem at the
World's Fair Catholic services were held
yesterday morning for the first time. The
mass was celebrated in the Church of the
Holy Sepulchre in the Chapel of St.
Helena, and was attended by all of the
Catholics residing In Jerusalem, as well
as In the World's Fair grounds. There
were many of other denominations living
on the grounds who also attended.
The services were tho Initiation of divine
worship to be held within the walls every
Sunday, and v ere conducted at the re
quest of the many Catholics living on the
Exposition site. In order to have mnss
celebrated there yesterday It was neces
sary to obtain permission from Arch
bishop Glennon, nnd this was readily
granted by the Metropolitan.
The congregation was a picturesque and
devout one, consisting for the most part
of the Catholic Armenians, Syrians and
other Oriental Christians with a fair
sprinkling of worshipers in the garb of
Americans and Europeans. Mass was said
by a Jesuit father, assisted by another
member of the order. Services In future
will be conducted by members of the
Jesuit nnd Franciscan orders alternating.
There are about fifteen thousand persons
of various denominations residing on the

GORMAN SHOWS STRONGLY.
Another possibility who has loomed up
threateningly is Senator Gorman. The
friends of the Marjiander go so far as to

hopes that the Parker boom will go into
