himself from the third floor landing

Chapman arrived at the Carlton

RESCUED BY FIREMEN.
Forty Children Taken From Burning
New York, Nov. 30.With children
held under their arms, clinging around
their necks or hanging to their shoul
gers, firemen early in the day carried
forty screaming youngsters from a
burning tenement house at 234 and
236 Ninth avenue. At the same time
thirty adults followed the rescuers
down the fire escapes. Among them
was a woman who for two weeks has
been helpless from a paralytic stroke.
The building, a five-story tenement,
was occupied by twelve families, in
which the number of children aver
aged from three to seven. All were
asleep when a passerby saw the fire.
The airshaft and stairways were
ablaze and the tenants fled to the fire
escapes in their night clothing. Mrs.
W. A. Connaughton, an aged woman
living on the second floor, who had
been bedridden for two weeks from
paralysis, arose and climbed into the
street unaided. The fright of the mo

without a twinge of pain. The finan

CABINET DISCUSSES AMERICAN
MEMBER OF ANGLO-RUSSIAN,
BOARD OF INQUIRY. i
DECISION ON LOTTERY ENTERPRISES
RULING OF ATTORNEY GENERAL
AFFECTS MANY MAGAZINES
Washington, Nov. 30.An important
meeting of the cabinet was held dur
ing the day. Two questions of con
cern were considered, the first being
the appointment by the president of a
representative of the American gov
ernment, who will be a naval officer
of high rank, on the tribunal which
is to determine the questions which
have arisen between Great Britain and
Russia over the firing by Admiral Ro
jestvensky's Baltic fleet upon the Brit
ish trawlers in the North sea, and the
other being an opinion rendered by
Attorney General Moody regarding the
legality, under the lottery laws, of
"guessing contests," which have been
conducted by many newspapers and
The invitation extended to the pres
ident by Great Britain and Russia to
name a member of the tribunal was
considered carefully, especially by the
president and Secretaries Hay and
Morton. When the cabinet adjourned
no definite conclusion as to who should
be selected had been reached: but it
was settled definitely that the ap
pointee would be a rear admiral of the
navy. It is practically certain choice
would be made among the three offiV
cersRear Admirals Davis, Chadwick
and Sands. Admiral Dewey was con
sidered for the appointment and the
desire was generally expressed that he
should have it, but he has let it be un
derstood that he does not care for the
honor. Announcement of an appoint
ment may be expected in a few days.
Some time ago, on the request of
Postmaster General Wynne, the presi
dent directed the attorney general to
submit to him an opinion as to the
propriety, under the law restricting
the operations of lottery enterprises
through the mails, of guessing con
tests of various kinds which have been
features of many publications for sev
eral years. That opinion was submit
ted during the day, and-was turned
over bythe president to Postmaster
General Wynne, who hereafter will be
guided in his direction of the depart
ment by it. The opinion is of a most
sweeping character and, while the
postmaster general has no inclination
to work hardship upon anybody, he
will put the attorney general's judg
ment into effect as soon as may be
The attorney general says the
schemes are in effect lotteries under
the guise of guessing contests.

Roosevelt, alighted from their car.
They were conducted immediately to
their carriage, which was in waiting,
and driven rapidly to the White
The trip of the president, ended by
his safe arrival at the White House,

most notable he ever took. The ar
rangements for the comfort, conveni
ence and personal safety of the presi
dent and Mrs. Roosevelt were the most
thorough ever made. They were
planned, with the approval of Mr.
Roosevelt, by Secretary Loeb and John
E. Wilkie, chief of the secret service.
They were accepted by President
David R. Francis of the exposition
company and by the St. Louis officials
and were carried into effect absolutely
to a letter.

There has been no important change
in the situation. Small skirmishes are
reported on the eastward, but there

The close proximity of the opposing
lines "in many places is leading to new
and unexpected developments. Re-'
cently the Japanese have been using
dogs as scouts, sending them out from
the trenches with long cords attached.
It is almost impossible,to detect these
wary animals, which unerringly locate
the Russian position arid give warn
ing of any movement against the Japa
nese. Some of the Russians have
managed, however, to strew the neu
tral ground with poisoned pork, thus
thinning the ranks of the dog scout
A number of rockets were recently
sent up by the Japanese in the hope,
apparently, of drawing the Russian
fire at night.
Prisoners taken by the Russians are
generally well clothed, but are said
not to show any great desire to return
to their own lines.

Verdict In Case of Prominent Cincin
nati Railroad Man.
Cincinnati, Nov. 30.Coroner Wea
ver has rendered a verdict in the case
of C. A. Parker, vice president of the
Cincinnati, Hamilton and Dayton and
Pere Marquette railroad, who died here
suddenly in his office Nov. 19, finding
that death was caused by suicide with
Mr. Parker's death at the time was
supposed to he from natural causes,
and no autopsy was held, neither was
the coroner disposed to hold an in
quest and the body was forwarded to
St. Louis for burial. Mr. Parker had
recently come into the service of the
Cincinnati, Hamilton and Dayton and
Pere Marquette system and had been
unusually busy in the work of reor
ganization. He had arrived from a
business trip oh the day of his death
and had given no indication of ill
health or of mental disturbance. It
was discovered afterwards that just
before his death he had placed in his
desk all valuables carried on his per
son. He was seen to step behind a
screen where the water cooler was
placed and where, presumably, he
swallowed the fatal, drug.
On the day of Mr. Parker's burial
and almost at the hour of his funeral
Miss Elsie Gesterling died by her own
hand in Chicago. It developed that
she had been his stenographer in Den
ver and that there was a story of im
proper relations between them. The
husband of Miss Gesterling's mother
said after his stepdaughter's death
that he believed that Parker and Miss
Gesterling had agreed to die together.
It was shown that just previous to Par
ker's death he had visited Miss Ges
terling in Chicago* After these devel
opments the coroner decided to hold
an inquest. From the testimony taken
he now finds that Mr. Parker's death
was caused by prussic acid self-admin
