The popularity or the $3 rate is net all
that Doctor McCoy sought front it. It was
given for a purpose, I- c., that all who re
quired medical treatment might avail
themselves of thesametreatnient thatonly
those In good circumstances had hitherto

effort Uf giveat a nominal cost what others
charge high prices for; to reach those 1
thousands of people unwilling to pa the

to placethemtelvconthe plane of paupers
and beek the inferior and untrained services

Strange as it may appear, hitherto the
ixjnularity of the $3 rate, however, has
nearly succeeded in defeating the etui
for which it was given. So many ap
plied toward the end of the limit ed period

could be treated. In the last two months,
toward the close of the rer'od, the appar

PATENOTRE SAYS GOOD-BYE
French Ambassador Presents His
Recall to the President "
McKiiiley Fearful of Opposition ii
the Senntc? to the Ratification of
Hawaiian Annexation Treaty.
Probably not a dozen of the place hunters
who have beic waiting anxlo-isly around
the Executive ManMon Tor the past six
weekt have been able to talk to the
President. Testerday he received in the
eart room M. Patentotre, the French
ambassador, who called with some friends
to bid the PreHdent good-bye, and to ex
press his appreciation of the courtesk'H
which have been extended him by offi
cials ot this Government during his stay
in "Washington, ltwasa brief but pleasant
interchange or. friendly expressions.
Bishop Hurst, of the Methodist Church,
chatted with the President a few min
utes, and was the only one grauted such a
Representative Harmer, or Philadelphia,
was a!o a White House visitor yesterday,
but as the Cabinet meeting was about to
take plate he ra compelled to leave the
mansion without grasping the hand ot the
Executive, Mr.Harmerbaid hecalledmerely
to pay his respects. He Is ot the opinioa
the Hawaiian annexation treaty will be
ratiried by the Senate arter a protracted
debate and believes in taking in those is
lands, i Ince the people have expressed a de
sire to become a part ot the United States.
As to the Cuban question, Mr. Harmer is
more guarded, his idea being that this
Government willhave to proceed slowlyand
cautiously until it is fully demonstrated
with a new captain-general tt the island.
Notwithstanding the report that the
President had polled the Senate, and found
the requisite two-thirds in favor of the
annexation ot Hawaii, there will, never
theless, be opposition, which will produce
at least considerable delay in the ratifica
tion or the proposed treaty. The opposi
tion 1b to be round in three of the Western
Senators, two Republicans and a Demo
crat, and Peuator CaKcry, of Louisiana.
Nevertheless. Senator Davis, chairman
ot the Committee on Foreign Relations,
will early in the session rail up the
treaty and fight for a day for the vote.
On this the opposition will develop it
self by dilatory motions.
The friends ot annexation, including the
President, have two strings to their bow.
In case the Senate cannot ratify the
treaty, the Administration will suggest
the paBsagc of a bill to Congress, just as
-was done In the annexation ot Texas.
Iu either event, the day in the Senate aiJ
House, when the matter is np, will bj
full of interest The opposition -will
demonstrate that there are two adverse
forces a work, one which is opposed to
Cuban annexation, and -which desires tbt
establishment ot no precedent of annex-i-
tion or roreign territory, and the other
the commercial Interest ot California.

Montreal, Nov. 20. The facts in Conner

of .Montreal's leading citizen came w light
yesterday. For days the local pa pets havo
contained columns telling hoVv Albert E.
Lewis, u prominent real estate man, had
Lcen murdered and kidnaped at n lonely
spotou the outskirtsof Monti eaU-,
His hat and gloves and evidence of a
struggle were found near the ph&eV'Lewis

he was at dinner with his family- Abou.
7 o'clock a noto was handed to him asking
hlin to cill upon a resident of St. Louis
d Mlleend, who, it was stated, wished to
seehim on business
Lewis, after dinner, kissed his wife and
started out to keep the appointment, &tat
inj' that he would afterwards attond a
public meeting of the residents of the mu
nicipality, which he had called4. "When he
reached the house of the man who it -vas
Mippcsed had sent the letter, the latter
denied that he had sent it, and after a
tvv: words Lewis left, as he.ssjtid, to to
ttie meeting. That was the last setj'i of
him, and when he did not return home the
theory wns that he had been either kiit
It now traiibpire that the calling ot the
meeting, the sending of the bogus letter and
thesiibscqupntfindlngof the hat and gloves
were all part of a skillfully arranged plan
concocted by Lewis himself in order to de
ceive his family and the public "and to lead
tji-m to suppose thath:; had been doneaway
Lewis had a carriage In waiting neartr.e
spot where he wah last seen, into which he
got, and, after carefully disguising liim
b'lrlhetookan outgoing train.
The reasons for his going are now plain.
Lewis, who was the son of a leading Alon
trcaler, and a man about forty-five yeais
old, was In his early youth a wandeierand
Bohemian. lie had traveled' all over the
West, been a cowboy in Oregon and Wash
ington, and had vibited the Sandwich Inl
ands. While on his travels he had met a
woman ct inferior station and lived with
her foi borne time, but they finally sepa
rated. ' '
Ai.-out ten Tears ago Lewis returned to
Montreal, aud not long afterward met
and married Miss Helen JUigg, one of the
richest; heiresses in this city. Ti.e Baggs

and Lewis, after he hadi niarriisd her,
launched into the real estate business on
an extensive scale.
He alj speculated heavily, and, hclpod
by hi wife, made a good deal of money
While apparently a model husband artii
moot devoted to his wife, he had man
Ilasons with women, and- had several

When Lewis would not met.her- demant'

To add to his tiouble his Intrigue with a
maided Wumnn had been discovered by the
htidband, who threatened to shoot him.
A few months ago Lewis decided to go
to Knglai.d with his wife for the Jubt-ve
festivities, thinking that the clouds would
blov over in his absence,, but when he re
turned a f w weeks ago thctxouble wasrj

ranged the plan to lead people to suppoie
that he had been murdered.
The plan might have worked very well
only it 'caked out that previous to his d
departure Lewis had transferred big blocks

family, ami that during his trip to England
he had placed a large amount of money
to bis credit in a London. bank. He is
believed to have gone to New York, when?
he will be joined by one of his Montreal

XO MOHF. NAVAL APPHENTICES.
Good Sailors in Plenty Cnn Be Had
on the Great Lakes.
The Navy Department is getting tired of
training apprentices at great cost to the
Government who do not remain in the
service after their education. It is esti
mated that 95 out ot every 100 abandon
the service at the first opportunity. This
has been made more apparent by the re
markable hucccbs of naval recruiting of
ficers in securing the enlistment of de
sirable mai-of-war's men on the Great
Lakes and along the Western rivers, and
has raised the question at abandoning the
apprentice system on the sea coast and
indications are that the brawn and muscle
aboard national vessels will soon he drawn
exclusively from the country west ot the
Alleghenies The western men are pro-
jnounced splendid sailors nnd as the supply
is apparently Inexhaustible, the cumber
some, expensive apprentice system will
probably be abolished.

MAffiEf CONTINUES QUIET
Lassitude and Lack of Energy Pre
Foreign Selling. Caused on Unset
tled Opening, But Local Trad
ing "Mas Fairly Steady.
New STork, Nov. 26. -Business wns re
sumed on the Stock ExchangO'thls morn
Ing with no considerable Increase of inter
i"t apparent in tiie speculation. Apart
from a few' securities arrected by spe.'lal
circumstances, actual or rumored, tho prices
were bluggish and reflected little more
than the insignificant quantities of sup
ply and demand, resulting from the oper
ations of the room traders A largo num
ber of statements of railway earnings for
tne Ultrd Y.cek ot November and for the
, . 0lf.nnP ,vero mltjii.ow.tl. Thev
were of an almost uniformly favorable bear
ing, but they parried no appreciable efrect
in the trading.
Foreign arbitrage houses dealt on both
.sides ot tho local market, but their sales
exceeded their purchases by a conslderabc
amount. With the relapse of the market
into professionalism, much greater atten
Hon it paid to the foreign quotations and
transactions, and they often give the
tone to the dally local markets. It inay
be recalled, however, th.it the almost
unbiokeu Mav and September adance '.n
prices tooirplafes In the face of constant
liquidation fof foreign account.
Ihe roreign selling noted wus effective
in causing an unsettled opening to the
local market, but throughout the apithetic
trading a fairly steady tone was evi
dent and the bottom tendency ot the
market was toward recovery." In .-espeet
of activity today, Sugar, People's Gas.
Manhattan, Jersey Centrat.andthe gnngers
were conspicuous. The foreign selling was
largest in St. Paul, and served to depress
that stock in the forenoon, but it re
covered in later dealings.
The miiou Increase in net earnings tor
October presumably accounted for the sell
Ing or St. Paul. A generally firmer tone
developed In the later dealings, which was
accompanied by rather more animation,
but the total dealings were still on a smaU
scale, and the market clovd dull but firm.

The market Lad a unall advance yes
terday as was expected. After some pre
liminarj hesitation and bear maneuvering
by the tradcrb it developed mure or less
strength ol the covering of shorts, priu
eipally. The immediate cause of this wis
the St. Taul statement. Tills was bett -r
than expected nudcansed the bears some
disappointment. There, was a large short
interest in the grangers and iu other parw
of thr list and these people apparently
thought It would be best to get out of
the way of any possible good advance
The bulls are again filled with the heady
wine of their first victory for som.j
time and were making their usual pro
dlctionb of a bcorn last night. There is
no particular reason to believe they are
right. The market will very likely have
farther bmall gains, but to expect any
thing more is foolish. The dullness and
narrowing of fluctuations will continue
certainly until after Congress meets and
shows its band a little.
St. Paul's earnings were a surprise to a
great many people. It had beeu freely
predicted that there would be a con
siderable decrease in the nets, and the bull3
were even figuring to show such a de-rea-e
would not really show a bad condi
tion or things and need not be looked on
with alarm. The actual figures- .show a
slight net increase. The gross earnings
Tor tho month of October increased $99,
281, and the net $2,799. it is also inter
esting to note that the comparison was
with the best month or last year, and that
since July 1 the .surplus earnings equal
nearly 4 percenton the common btock, us
against only 2 1-2 per cent in the corre
sponding period last year. It is proba
ble one would think that the effect or
this good news waB not expected j-es-terday,
and that today may ee a fur
ther Kinail advance in St, Paul, and per
haps on the other grangers, although
with s-ueh a narrow proreksional market
the tendency to" take profits on fractional
turns is strong. '
Another stock that looks well for an
advance is Sugar, though in Sugar one
has no right ever to feel confident. The
stock of the Trust has acted well for
the last day or two and the dividend is
to be dedaicd next -week, an ewnt that
is usually accompanied by strength t.n
the pait of the stock. It seems probible
that there will be two or three poinis
profit on the bull side inside of a wej.t
raclfic Mail's gross earnings for Octo
ber were'Si-SOSa, showing a decline or
$43,555. tlleiet were $34,000, a decline
of $3.1,573. "Omaha, for the month, ear-ied
$1,087 000. a1'.ilecreasc of $29,000. On
tario and Western, for the third week
in November, showed an increase of earn
ings of $2,636. Chesapeake and Ohio,
same period, $16,298; Lake Erie and
Western, same period, $1,519; Wheel
ing and Lake Eric, same period, $10,258:
Chicago Oroat 'Western, $28,910. It is
understood that the October statement
of Jluriington will be gGod.
One cannot learn "With any certainty if
the New York Gas deal is off or on cr
pending- The general idea seems to te that
it is not likely to be consummated. Mr.
Sage is credited with the supposed failure
of the consr.lldatiou. The uncertainty of
the situation puts Gas stock in a position-
.likely to give a gambler excitement, at
Northern .Pacific was fairly strong yester
day and may not reactfrom the advance of
the early part of the "week. Some slight
decline in sales i-f probable, however.

tpresting nnd important feature of the
week'sevents- The cotton exportsalso have
become very Heavy, and the outgo of corn
fulls little below last year's unprecedented
record, while in manufacturing products
especially machinery, all records for the
Reason have been surpasssd While tho ag
gregate for November last year was over
$109,000,000, shipments from New l'ork
for three weeks have leen but slightly
Hinalier, with a Tair prospect that Un
known increase in cotton and other prod
ucts from other iiorts make up the defi
ciency. .Meanwhile imports are running Le
hind Iaityear'sat New l'orknearly $2,000.
000 this month, so that another excess or
exports over imports, amounting to atoit
?GO,000,000 for the month, Is probable.
But this would make an excess of about
$225,000,000 in four months.
Cotton declined to 5.81, the lowest polut
for man 5 years, with scarcely any indl
cation of speculative efrort. The iron
industry -hows no decrease in production
or con-sumption of pig, but with much
reduced order for products excess of pro
duction is expected.
The woolen manufacture Is still con
suming heavllj in execution of past ord.rs
and Pinny agents are sold so far ibi.id
that they seek Ho further business, wile
others are lH.-ginning to question whether
the uemuud for the next season will suf fi.
If price? are made to correspond with
present quotations of wool. Failures for
ttie week have been 236 In the United
States against 300 last year and -5 in
Canada against 38 last year.
Bradttreet's today in its weekly
review of trade, will say:
Notwithstanding the appearance of a
demand fur holiday specialties at som
points In the South, at Chicago, St. Louis
andregiqiis tributary thereto, general
trade throughout the country has shown
no general Improvement this wecc. Most
favorable reports are from the territory
west of the Mississippi River and nortU
of Missouri and Kansas, where colder
weathei has -stimulated demand at the
Interior and country merchants have bee 1
buying with comparative freedom.
