clew is in the possession and on the

the possible solution of the mystery

tails She astonished the morgue at
tendant by saying that he would cer
tainly learn more about the case later

Four hours later the barrel with its
ghastly contents was discovered in the

Visits of Emperor William to Prince
Hohenlolie Have Aronsed the
Xev paper
BERLIN March SThe long visits
of Emperor William to Chancellor Von
Hohenlohe Baron Von Blebersteln the
minister of foreign affairs and the
Austrian ambassador on Saturday
have given an impulse to speculation I
in the press and in political circles on
the subject of the visit this week of I
Count Goluchowski the Austrian min
ister for foreign affairs and the future
relation of Italy to the dreibund which
are undoubtedly the subject of Count
Goluchowskys mission The papers
generally counsel Italy to make the
utmost sacrifice to save her honor and
they hint that Germany and Austria I I
will support this policy The Boersen
Courier on the contrary contends that
Italys position would not be weakened I
if she withdrew from the African ad
venture
I
The Voerwarts leads the democratic
I sections of the press with a ferocious
attack upon Italy and Signor Crispi I
dubbing the laMer the hero of the
Banco Romania scandals and the
sleuth hound of Italy who lacks the
courage to face parliament These
papers naturally welcome the collapse
of the dreibund but in face of Italys
difficulties at home and abroad and
the doubtful attitude of Russia toward
Italy it is not easy to predict the
outcome of Coun Coluchowskys con
ference here There are even rumors
now that King Humbert will abdicate
in favor of his son The fear of Eng
lands attitude since the Transvaal
affair is also a factor in the situation

THE ONE THEORY
upon which the companys agents base
their greatest hopes is that the Rio by
force cf bad weather or other circum
stances was compelled to pass Yoko
hama without making her usual stop
there This would not be considered an
altogether unusual opourrence I has
happened several times during the past
twelve years to other steamers in the
service of the company Should this
be the case there will be a still longer
period of anxiety for nothing can possi
bly be heard from her in that event
until she reaches Hong Kong Many
shipping men feel hopeful she will
wi
portThe shortly be reported from the Chinese
The Rio de Janeiro is one of the
handsomest and largest vessels en
gaged in the transPacific service of
the Pacific Mail She is a fourmaster
amply provided with sails in
wih sais so that incase
case of damage to her engines while
at sea there
would be nothing to pre
vent her weathering her way to some
nearby port with the
USE OF HER CANVAS ALONE
I thIs were the case however she
would doubtless be long delayed and
I might be even weeks before she
would be heard from
The Rio was built in 1878 at Chester
Pa She is of steel and Is equipped
with the most modern machinery and
appurtenances and has the reputation
of being a fairly fast and staunch ves
sel at sea
When the Rio left this port she car
ried a cargo of general merchandise
and bullion valued at nearly a million
dollars The merchandise which was
consigned to various Japanese and
Chinese ports was valued in all at
152233 The major portion of this
cargo comprised flour for China cotton
for Japan and canned goods and sugar
for both countries
General Superintendent Center of the
Pacific Mall company stated that the
company had not begun to lose hope
for the safety of the Rio
Of course said he we cannot
help feeling somewhat anxious
WE ARE HOPEFUL
and have good reasons for entertain
ing that hope Many things could
have happened by which the long ab
sence of the Rio could be accounted
for to our minds even though we have
received no dispatches or anything of
a definite nature in the shape of news
from her We do know for instance
that they have been having very
heavy weather between the Hawaiian
Islands and Japan of late I is not at
all improbable that the Rio got into
the worst of this weather and that
Captain Russell decided to take plenty
of room and not antagonize the storm
even though he might lose much time
in reaching Yokohama
I is possible that he found it com
pulsory to even skip by Yokohama en
tirely That
HAS HAPPENED BEFORE
We did become anxious when the
steamer was only overdue a week be
cause the Belgic in making her last
run down was six days late She re
ported exceedingly heavy weather
The Rio is a good stout boat and
perfectly able of taking care of herself
in any kind of weather She was only
recently overhauled and put into thor
I
oughly good condition She was at
that time ptonounced to be about as
good a seaboat a we had on our line
Her engines arein perfect condition
and in fact every
so far as we know lnd eveI
thing about her was in fit condition
forany kind of voyage

periments In X rays conducted jointly
by the Rocky Mountain News and the
Homeopathic college have disproved
the theory advanced that Crookes tubes
made of lead glass would not permit
the X rays to pass through the walls
of the tube The expEriments were con
ducted by Dr C E Tennant jr on b
half of the college and H H Buckwal
ter reporter for the News all practical
photographers I being impossible to
procure a genuine Crookes tube 3 sub
stitute was made of common lead
glass used in incandescent globes made
by the company Several negatives
were made in remarkable short time af
had taken
ter some unknown change
place in the glass structure directly
where the cathode and X rays impinge
on the glass opposite the aluminum
disc This supposed molecular change
took about an hour after which the
rays came forth in such quantities that
a perfect negative of the bones of a
mans hand was obtained in five min
utes The current was from an induc
tion coil giving a three inch spark Oth
er negatives were made to determine
the absorbing powers of various sub
stances and none of these negatives
were given an hours exposure De
velopment lasted less than fifteen min
utes The results thus far obtained
are merely preliminary to extended re
search which will be made both with
the lead glass tubes and also the gen
uine Crookes tubes a soon as they can
be obtained

senate Monday on the proposition t
accept the report of the conference
Committee agreeing to the house reso
lutions There is a possibility of con
siderable debate upon the subject but
on the other hand the report may be J
accepted after but brief exchange of
views I is believed that under no 1
circumstances the question will be pro
longed beyond Monday and there is j
little doubt that the house resolutions
will be agreed to
The Dupont Delaware election case
will also continue to receive attention
during the week Senator Turpie will
speak on Monday in opposition to the
seating of Mr Dupont and will be fol
lowed when opportunity affords by
either Senator Pritchard or Senator
Chandler for Dupont I is not be
lieved the debate on this question will
be concluded during the present week
The bill to prevent the extermination 1
of the Alaskan seals has been made J
the special order for Thursday next
but whether it will be taken up at that
time will probably depend upon
whether an amicable arrangement can
be made concerning the Dupont case
There is no disposition on the part of 1
the of the seal bill to

vent continued consideration of the
Dupont matter The seal bill will pro
