Simultaneous Plays Were Made

Three Rousing Cheers Were Given
for the Manhattan Chess Club
of New York.
Lokdoit, March 9. -A large number of
« ■ tnbled to-day in the
ria Hall, mi the second flour of the
1 ..n Restaurant, which was tastefully
ated with white and gold. It was the
liall in which the famous interna
tional tournament in l^". was played.
At 3:25 !•. m. Lasker, the referee, drew
for the moye, and after the names of the
players were exchanged it was the opinion
of all that the :e;im^ were well matched.
The players sal down at separate tables,
being roped off from the public, but along
the middle of the hall a table with ten
chessboards was placed so as to give the
.! chance to see the progress of
i games. On these boards the moves

the boards of the] layers. Here was where
the spectators congregated, and the moves
ollowed with the greatesi interest
mid < agerness. The cable instruments
were placed opposite the players at the
i I the hall
The genera] opinion prevailed here thai
the play on both sideswas very cautious
on all boards. Much disappointment,
] ••. er, was evinced as time passed, for it
en that the game could not possibly
ghi out. Secretary Bryne said all
were very well satisfied with the cabling
arrangements, but they can now see that
more time should have been given. The
experiment, however, was a good one and
will certainly result in having an immense
Influence for the promotion of other inter-
Dai ional matches.
Lasker had this to say: "The circum-
Btances considered the experiment was
highly satisfactory. Playing was very
good on both sides and the result shows
how tittle difference there really is be
tween the two teams. It was really a
great encounter and attracted world-wide
interest. The British chess club had gath
ered a very strung team."
It was a rather dramatic scene when the
play was stopped, sir George Newnes had

tion, to call the match a draw, and he >at

Time passed and no reply. At
11 :50 the manager of the hall asked all to
leave. The officers of the British club re

answer to their query arrived. The man
ager, however, replied that he must close
tin premises, and that the electric lights
would be switched off at midnight. Xewnes
and tin- others showed the greatest anxiety
and as the hour approached.
Lasker declared he would have to
leave in order to catch a train
but he was persuaded to stop a few min
utes longer. A.gain the manager of the
hall appealed t.> the people to depart, and
then, as the hour struck, the lights went
out, leaving the room in darkness except
for a few gaslights under t lie ceiling. As
they were leaving the room the instru

BODIES FROM THE WRECK.

Cargo of the Sunken
Cincinnati, March 9. — This has been a
day a suspense among the relatives and
friends of the victims of the Longfellow
wr.ck. Searching parties have gone down
the river looking for traces of the missing.
The officers of the packet company were
rewarded for their zealousness by finding
the body of the veteran clerk of the Long
fellow, Captain J. L. Carter, in the wreck
that had been caught and tied to the shore
near Riverside. The aged clerk was pinned
to the boiler by a portion of the cabin deck
which had fallen on him. His body was
When the river falls, as it will do doubt
leas by Monday, a inure extended search
can be made in that part of the wreck,
where it is supposed the bodies of Mr.
Aldridge and of the bartender, Chauvet,
may be found.
The wreckage of the Longfellow is scat
tered for a distance of twenty-five miles,
and everywhere the skiffs of wreckers are
busy towing cases to the shore where they
are immediately rifled. Pirate skiffs are
hovering around the hull waiting for
pieces of freight to be detached. The com

to save the cargo.
There have been no developments to-day
to indicate that the death list will be en

South Dakota's State
THE REPORT COMPLETE.
His Sureties Compounded a
Felony After the Exposure
THEY WILL BE PROSECUTED.
Steps Have Been Taken to Recover
Some of the Thousands of
Sioux City, lowa. March 9.— The Jour
nal's Pierre (S. Dak.) special says: The
legislative committee investigating the
Taylor defalcation made its report just
before adjournment. Proceedings were in
secret, and the report is now made public
for the first time.
The committee declared from the evi
dence before it that it is shown a conspir
acy existed between the sureties of Taylor
and t lie defaulter to "hold up" the State
and compel a settlement. It says:
"We do not find that there was any collusion
among the sureties or any other persons with
him to defraud the State prior to the time
when it became apparent to John T. MeOhes
ney of Now York, one of the bondsmen, that
Taylor would not be able to make his settlement
with the State.
But we Jo find evidence strongly tending to
show iluit ; n the latter part of December. 1594,
ami after MeChesney discovered that Taylor
c ■ >ul<l not raise money enough to make hia set
tlement, McCheSney, together with Taylor, D.
K. Tenny and C. 11. Wells and C. T. McCoy,
acting as agent at Pierre, entered Into
a scheme to gather up all the funds
held by Taylor, amounting to over
$200,000, and the real and personal property
owned by Taylor, wherever located, and place
it beyond the reach of the State, for the purpose
oi compelling the State to agree not to prose
cute Taylor criminally, or, in other words,
to compound a felony on condition that
property and money to the amount of $100,
--000 should be delivered up and paid over to
the State, thus relieving the sureties by paying
their liabilities -with the funds stolen from the
State. The evidence showed they had at
tempted to carry out tin- scheme with fraudu
lent intent to defraud the State.
Tenny and Wells are the Chicago law
yers of Taylor and MeChesney. The com
mittee finds that the total amount stolen
by Taylor was $344,070 10. As to where
the money went the evidence shows among
other things "that he loaned ex-Governor
Mellette moneys amounting to $29,000 and
that he loaned Judge Kellam $4000 and
purchased a negotiable note for $5000
given by United States Senator Pettigrew,
wl ich was repaid to C. T. McCoy, Taylor's
agent, on or about the 7th of January, 1895.
"It is further found that during the
month of December last he transferred
from fifteen banks where he deposited
public funds about $200,000 to himself and
for his benefit to New York and Chicago;
that he appropriated to his own use prior
to December last ?U5,500."
The evidence shows no collusion on the
part of any State officer with the default
ing Treasurer. There is, however, testi
mony showing gross negligence, to say the
least, on the part of Thomas H. Ruth, ex-
Commissioner of School and Public Lands.
The report states that action to recover
has been begun in thirty different counties
and that services have been had on all the
different defendants in the case; that suits
have also been instituted against McChes
ney in New York and William Taylor,
father of the defaulter, in Indiana.

New York, March Announcement is
' made of a remarkable discovery of a means
of producing illuminating gas at a cost of
7 cents for the same amount of light as is
furnished by ordinary gas at $1 25. Fac
tories are already completed and the gas
will be offered for general use in a short
time. It is now used in a house in this city
and has been found in every way practi
The new illuminant is acetylene, the low
est gas in the series of hydro-carbons,
which are the foundation of organic chem

many of the most important products of
coal tar and petroleum. It is known to
chemists as C^H^ and is practically pure

Salina, Kans., March 9.— Bishop Thomas
died at 9 :2f> to-night. During the day he
rallied and recognized his friends and
strong hopes were entertained that he
wuuld recover, but at 8 o'clock he had a
relapse, and from that time on he grew
weaker until life became extinct.
The Right Rev. Elisha Smith Thomas,
S.T.D., Protestant Episcopal Bishop of
Kansas, was born March 2, 1834. He grad
uated from Yale in 1858 and at Berkeley
Divinity School, Middleton, in 1861. At
Yale he was a classmate of Chauncey M.
Depew. He was ordained deacon in June,
1861, and priest soon afterward. On the
death of Bishop Vail in 1889 he became
Bishop of Kansas.
THE INSURANCE MONOPOLY
Final Session of Western Underwriters
Adjourned in St. Louis.
St. Louis, Mo., March 9.— The Western
Union of Insurance Underwriters held its
final session to-day and adjourned to meet
at Niagara Falls in September next- While
nothing of a positive Character can be
learned it is stated that there had been a
bitter tight at every session of the union,
a fight which has not yet seen its end.
The trouble grew out of the question of
commissions. The mode of procedure
prior to March, 1894, was for local agents
to make their own terms with tlie com
panies they represented as to commis
sions. Kates were the same, but the com
missions varied according to the influence
and business capacity of individual agents.
About that time the Western Union
passed a rule that thereafter commissions
should not be paid in excess of 15 per
St. Louis agents have failed to live up to
it. Several local agents represent both
union and non-union companies, and the
Western Union, it is said, is now trying
to force local agents either to conform to
the rules of practice in regard to the 15-per
cent commission or to give up their non
union companies, the real object of the
resolution being to force the outside com
panies into the union.

TRAIN -WRECKERS FOILED.
A Woman Telegraph Operator's
Quick Wit Prevented
She Warned the Northern Pa
cific Officials of Tramps'
Doxtjth, Minn., March o.— Some of the
1 ;i~-ingers who were on the Northern Fa
ciiic train from the west this morning were
decidedly nervous until they were some
distance this side of Kimberly.
Last night about 11 o'clock Miss Reich
art, the night operator at Kimberly, twelve
miles this side of Aitkin, heard three
rough-looking men planning to wreck the
passenger train at a bridge near Kimberly.
She at once wired the dispatchers at Brain
erd, and the men heard the instrument
working and jumped at the conclusion that
she was warning the railroad people. They
rushed for the door of the oitice and tried
to break it in, but were met by the plucky
woman, who lired four shots through the
door. The men took to their heels.
The railroad officials sent out word for
the section men to patrol the track for sev
eral miles, and the train was run very cau
tiously through that part of the country,
but no trouble was experienced. Three
men were run out of Aitkin yesterday, and
it is believed they planned the wreck.
MURDER THE CHILDREN
A Texas Mother I'oi.toned Her Babes In

Paris (Tex.), March O.— A shocking
double child munlerwas committed three
miles southwest of Roxton fifteen miles
southwest of here. Last night Mrs. Mollie
Carrutherß, the wife of William Carruthers
a respectable well-to-do farmer, went to
her room and gave her three children large
quantities of morphine. Physicians were
summoned but could do nothing for the
two youngest, one 11 and the other 4 years
okt and at 3 o'clock both were dead. The
oldest, a girl of 14 is now out of danger.
An investigation was begun and in a few
hours Mrs. Carruthers and Jim Strange
were arrested. They were brought here
and lodged in jail. After her arrest Mrs.
Carruthers admitted she had given the
children morphine for the purpose of kill
ing them. She said it was done to get
them out of trouble and said she intended
to follow. It was learned later, however,
that the woman and Strange had planned
to destroy the children and then leave the

A CABLE TO HAWAII
Minister Thurston Says
Assistance Would Be
France Is Figuring Upon the
Submerged ' Telegraph Line
to the Islands.
THE JAPANESE SAY NOTHING.
The Legation Secretary Does Not
Believe His Countrymen Are
Washington-, March 9.— The Hawaiian
Minister to the United States, Minister
Thurston, said to-day he was cognizant in
a general way only of efforts on the part
of private individuals to establish a cable
between the United States and Hawaii.
"The Hawaiian Government would look
with favor upon this or any other proposi
tion for cable communication with the
world," said Mr. Thurston. "What we
want first is a cable, preferably in connec
tion with the United States, because our
business interests lie that way; but at any
rate a cable. Any proposition looking to
this end will receive the aid of the Ha
waiian Government to the extent of its
ability, meaning by that its financial abil
ity and recognition of treaty obligations."
It is understood that there is still another
possibility of a cable to Hawaii. It is stated
in diplomatic circles that the French Gov
ernment has intimated to the Hawaiian
Government a desire that the Hawaiians
should not be too quick to close negotia
tions for an English cable. It was hinted
in this connection, it is said, that there is a
possibility of France extending her New
Caledonia cable to Honolulu. The French
Government now aids, by subsidy, a cable
between Australia and the island of New
Caledonia. From this point it is but a
distance of 3000 miles to Honolulu. Which
ever Government gets the cable to Hono
lulu first will have a practical monopoly
for several years, because there will not be
enough business for two lines, and, more
over, it will have a start toward the exten
sion of a cable from Hawaii to the west or
K. Matsui, first secretary of the Japa
nese legation, smiled skeptically when his
attention was called to the advanced state
of the negotiations looking toward the Pa
"Such an idea has been considered for
the past five or six years," he said, "but
nothing definite has been formulated. I
do not believe the statements that wealthy
Japanese capitalists are interested at pres
ent in the incorporation of such a com
pany. Neither do I believe that Minister
Kurino has had any communication with
the Secretary of State on the subject."
"Have there been any conferences with
officials of this legation upon the matter?"
Mr. Matsui smiled again. "None, I as
sure you," he replied amiably. "All state
ments published regarding approaching
completion of preliminaries in this regard
are something new to me, and I cannot
believe there is much in them."

Hereafter They Will He Appraised lie
fore Going to Mexico.
Washington, March 9.— The Secretary of
the Treasury has advised the Collectors of
Customs at ports at which goods hereto
fore have been entered for transit to Mex
ico that the recent joint resolution passed
by Congress prohibits such transit in cases
where the goods arc designed to points
within the so-called "free zone."
The Secretary also directs Collectors to
hereafter refuse entries for such transpor
tation. Goods already entered may be
forwarded as heretofore, but goods which
hereafter may arrive at any port of entry
will be required to be examined and ap
praised and entered for transportation in
bond to an American port on the Mexican
border and re-entered there for exporta
tion. This will involve delay and possibly
expense to shippers, but cannot be avoided
in any other manner than by the abolish
ment of the free zone.
NO MORE LAND PATENTS
Secretary Smith Has liecided to With
hold Railroad Titles.
Washington, March 9.— Secretary Smith
has determined that no more patents for
land granted the subsidized railroads shall
be issued until there has been a settlement
of the debt due the Government from these
roads. An attempt was made to get a res
olution to this effect through Congress, but
As soon as the resolution was presented
Commissioner Lamoreux of the General
Land Office immediately suspended work
upon the preparation of lists of lands
within the grants and none were sent to
the Secretary for approval while the reso
lution was pending. Afterward, when
Congress adjourned, the Commissioner felt
compelled to go ahead with the patenting
of lands to the Union and Central Pacific
roads, but with the announcement of the
Secretary that he will not approve any
further "patents to these roads work was
Secretary Smith will in a short time make
an order to that effect and give reasons
for such action. He says that he thinks it
just that no more patents should be
granted when the roads owe the Govern
ment such large sums.
It has been stated that a suit for man
damus to compel the Secretary to con
tinue issuing patents will be brought by
the railroads. When this was suggested
to Secretary Smith to-day he said that it
would be time enough to begin work on the
patents when the courts granted such
mandamus. The lands affected are within
the grants to the Union and Central Pacific
between Omaha and Sacramento. It is
also thought the lands within the grant to
the Oregon and California road will be af
fected as it is operated as a part of the
Central Pacific Kailroad system.
FIGHT WITH TRAMPS
Delaware Officers Hare Running Tight
Jiefore Making Arrests.
Wilmington, Del., March 9.— Last night
fifty tramps captured the Philadelphia,
Wilmington and Baltimore freight train
from Baltimore, due in this city at
11:30. Conductor Reilly and crew were
powerless. A few of the gang had re
volvers and all were armed with knives
and clubs. One brakemen was beaten.
The tramps attempted to force him from
They took refuge on the engine. At
Chase station the trainmen were all driven
from the tops of the cars, and it was ex
pected that an attack would be made on
the engine, but afterward the tramps
began quarreling among themselves. One
was thrown from the train and it is sup
posed was fatally injured.
Conductor Reilly telegraphed to this city
for assistance. As soon as the train stopped
the tramps jumped from the cars and ran
across the fields, after a running fight in
which several shots were fired.
The officers succeeded in capturing
eleven. The tramps only surrendered at
the point of revolvers. This morning the
prisoners were given jail sentences.
COMES TO STUDY OUT WEST
Rev. Jenkin Lloyd Jones Will
Buddhism May Get Boston, but
Will Make No Headway
Rev. Jenkin Lloyd Jones of Chicago, as
sociate professor at Chicago University
and Secretary of the World's Congress of
Religions, arrived in San Francisco yes
terday evening on a tour through the State.
"I left Chicago in the proverbial bliz
zard, and of course found sunshine and
balmy breezes on reaching California. I
was prepared for that." The professor,
however, added that he had not come to
enjoy the climate so much as to study the
mental and moral condition of the people
of California. "Everything here is several
degrees newer than it is even in Chicago,
and I want to find out whether the people
are more advanced than in the middle
West. It is an interesting sociological
study, and one that I mean to make the
"It seems a strange thing to say, but so
far what has impressed me most is the
desert. It was good to see something
where man was not, and that he did not
covet — in fact the desert is the only thing
I have seen for a long time that man did
not want. There is a great sermon in the
gospel of the desert."
Mr. Jones, who is the guest of Leslie W.
Sprague, will preach twice at the Second
Unitarian Church, once this evening and
once next Sunday, during his stay in this
city, though the desert will not be one of
his themes. He will also deliver lectures
on literary subjects at both the universities
and in Golden Gate Hall, and at the Sec
ond Unitarian Church.
"Speaking of literature," said Mr.
Jones, '•! consider the dramatist and the
novelist the greatest preachers of to-day.
Mrs. Humphry Ward's 'Marcella' is a
pure tract for the times, although the
writer has had art enough to make it a
great novel at the same time. Another
writer over whom the Chicago profession
is enthusiastic is Henrik Ibsen. To me,"
he said, "Ibsen is one of the bitter-sweet
tonics of modern literature. There is a
wholesome discontent to be found in his
works, and though he has never arrived at
any great conclusions himself he has
forced men to think. It is a mistake to
call Ibsen a pessimist. He may be a short
range pessimist, but he is a long-range
optimist. That is, he thinks that things
will be worse before they art: better, but
that ultimately men will learn by bitter
experience, and will overthrow the evils
that have crept in through the present cor
rupt condition of society."
When asked whether Chicago was his
native heath the Unitarian minister frankly
stated that he was born in Wales. "I was
an enterprising infant of a year old though
when I emigrated to America," he added,
"and I brought my father and mother
with me. Since then I have lived princi
pally in Chicago."
One of the lectures that Rev. Lloyd Jones
will deliver is entitled "Parliament of
Religions, and What Next?" In reply to
a question as to what sequel he expects the
professor declared that the parliament had
sounded the death knell of sectarianism.
"It made even Christianity realize that it
is one of a family— the best born and the
noblest maybe, but it has brothers and
sisters. The parliament showed the uni
versality of religious instincts, and out of
that comes a recognition of the unity of all
Wn _ e n asked lns opinion of the fact that
a Buddhist missionary had recently begun
a propaganda of his faith in Ban Francisco,
Mr Jones remarked with an air of surprise
un.l-entlo sarcasm: ''Well, I have heard
that the Buddhists had hopes of capturing
Boston, but I did not expect it here In
Chicago we are too good Christians to go
to the lengthsof San Francisco and Boston,
though we realize some good in Buddhism ' '
And then the Rev. Jones looked
thoughtful, as though he were beginning
to find more interesting sociological studies
in the West than he had anticipated "
