THE KANSAS CITY JOURNAL, FRIDAY, OCTOBER U, 1898.
I
acts for all the -world as though he -was
In dread of his very life.
Railroad Detectives Active.
While the police department Is resting
rather easily on ls oars, the railroad de
tectives are still at It. Detective Dell Har
baugh yesterday all day lone had a woman
at the Savoy hotel putting her through
the "sweating" process. She Is believed
to be Mrs. Malcolm, who lives at 2a2l South
west boulevard, with 'whom Lowe boarded
for some time. She is the woman who wrote
to Lowe at the Santa Ke offices and threat
ened to tell many things If he did not pay
her the HO he owed her. It is said that
.Lowe paid Mrs: Malcolm the room rent
of one Mrs. Amada Harris, and that he
frequently visited the Harris woman. Dur
ing some of these visits he is said to have
shown the woman masks and Kes ana
other train robbing paraphernalia. Jf
not known what good the evidence of this
woman would do In the case. "PIe?s ne
might possibly know something about some
of the other men connected with it.
It Is also said that Detective Furlong
has a man under arrest In St. Louis, but
this cannot be verified. The two are said
to have started for Kansas City.
The case is practically at an end as far
as the gathering of testimony goes. The
police are thoroughly satisfied that they
have covered the Held thoroughly, and they
have evidence enough to convict all of the
men who have been arrested. It is now up
to the grand jury. After that, the crim
inal court ard the real light.
Chief Hayes has very little to say about
the matter.
Certain of Ilia Guilt.
"I am sorry for Jesse James. It is a
stigma that he will never be able to erase
from his name. Ho is but a boy, and has,
I understand, been a good one. But I am
Just as certain that he is guilty as I am
that my name Is John Hayes. I would
stake my reputation on It. In fact, that
Is just what I am doing, for don't you
know that I realize that the loy has
many friend in the city, and what It would
mean if I had arrested him without bcln,j
sure of what I was doing?
"Convict him? I don't know. We have
Just as much evidence against Kennedy
In the Alton train robbery, and we couldn't
cet a verdict against him. The Jury Is
liable to b influenced very much by the
record of the boy. We have got the evi
dence, and that is all we can do."
MAY INDICT JOHN KENNEDY.
Federal Grand Jury 1VII1 Probably
Take lip the Chicago fc Alton
Train Robbery Case.
The police are trying to kill two birds
with one stone. They say that Ihey have
tucceeded In obtaining new evidence against
John Kennedy Implicating him in the hold
up of the Chicago & Alton train at the
Blue cut on December 23, 1SS6. They say
that W. W. Lowe, the" confessor in the
Missouri Pacific robbery near Leeds, has
said that he was implicated with Kennedy
in that affair. There Is a strong probabil
ity that a charge will be made against him
In the federal court of delaying the mail.
The penalty for this Is from five to fifty
years in the penitentiary.
It is stated that Lowe has made a con
fession of this. also. In it is stated that the
evidence of James Flynn was correct in
every particular. Lowe says that they
made a good haul out of this holdup, but
that he spent nearly all of his share In
"plugging the Jury. He says that he was
present every day of the trial.
As soon as the Investigation, In regard
to the train robbery is finished by the
grand jury, it will take up the charge
against the "quail hunter" of murdering
Emma Schumacher. The contented look
upon Chief Hayes' face comes from the
fact that he has succeeded in obtaining
other evidence against Kennedy on this
charge of murder, and .this evidence came
from W. W. Lowe, the confessor.
It recms, from the statement of Lowe,
that he has been mixed up In nearly all of
the Jobs that have been attributed to Ken
nedy, and that he knows Just exactly how
and under what circumstances Emma
Schumacher lost her life on the Sth day of
December last. Just what Lowe has told
Is a matter that no one knows but Chief
Hayes. He will not tell. 'William Handy,
the principal witness against Kennedy iu
the case, was in consultation with the
chief several hours yesterday, and was
then taken before the grand Jury for an
hour. It is probable that the case against
Kennedy was taken up "between wit
nesses" by that body. At any rate, it is
understood from authority that Lowe has
made Important revelations that will go
far toward connecting Kennedy with the
murder of Emma Schumacher.
The police say that .there have been Just
four men connected with all of the large
"jobs" that have happened In the city ana
vicinity during the last few years, and. in
the language of Chief Hayes, "if four men
that I know were strung up there would be
no more train robberies in this city."
A WITNESS .IN ST. LOUIS.
A Mysterious Individual, Kept in Con
cealment at the Home of De
tective Furlong.
ST. LOUIS, MO., Oct. 13. The Republic
to-day says:
"It Is known that an Important witness in
the Kansas City train robbery case has
been quartered since Sunday night at 2723
Walnut street. Detective Tom Furlongs
home. Great secrecy was maintained in
the matter, and neighbors aver that the vis
itor rarely steps from the house, and then
only to take a turn to the corner and back.
"From a reliable source Information was
obtained that Mr. Furlong's guest had been
sent to St. Louis for safe keeping by Chief
of Police Hayes, of Kansas City. Prac
tically, this was an admission that the in
dividual In question was connected with the
train robbery case, presumably a witness.
"Detective Furlong Is in the employ of
the Missouri Pacific railroad, on which line
the robbery was attempted. He returned
from Kansas City Sunday night. On his
arrival at the Union station he was ac
companied by a beardless young man. They
entered a cab and were driven west on
Market street.
"A description of the young man Is as fol
lows: Five feet six inches In height,
dressed in a neat fitting dark suit of
clothes, with a Fedora hat; large, expres
sive blue eyes, light brown hair and a
somewhat effeminate face.
"Under and with Chief Hayes, Furlong
and his men have been constantly employed
on the robbery mystery for weeks. Flnk
erton men were also called into the case,
but the burden of the work Is said to have
been divided between Furlong and the Kan
ras City police. Yesterday Furlong re
fused to admit that his guest was a witness
In the case, but admitted that he had re
cently returned from the Fcene of the
robbery.
"Then, last night a man sent out by the
detectives was seen to secure two roll
read tickets to Kansas City, and the. sup
position is that the mysterious young man
will be shortly taken back to his home. He
will doubtless nppcar before the grand
jury, which will be asked to Indict Jesse
James, Jr.

by Admirers of the Tnm-
mnny Cnndldnte.
NEW YORK, Oct. 13. Judge Augustus
Von AVyck opened the Democratic cam
paign in this city at the Academy of Music
In Brooklyn to-night before a crowd that
filled every available foot of space in the
building, and cheered him enthusiastically
upon his appearance upon the platform,
throughout the address that he delivered,
and at every mention of his name by the
other speakers.
The academy was entirely unable to ac
commodate the great number of people who
tried to gain admission. The street in front
of the main entrance was blocked from
curb to curb as early as 7 o'clock. By 7:30
o'clock, half an hour before the meeting
opened, there was not a vacant seat in the
house, and a thousand or more people were
standing In the aisles and on the platform.
Judge Van Wyck did not appear on the
platform until Just as the chairman of the
meeting. Justice William J. Gaynor, was
closing his address, and as the candidate
walked from the rear of the stage to a seat
near the speaker's stand, the people stood
up and cheered and waved hats and hand
kerchiefs. The demonstration continued for a minute
or two and did not cease while the chair
man formally presented Judge Van Wyck.
In fact, the remarks which Judge Gaynor
made in introducing his associate on the
supreme bench were not heard by anyone,
for the band was playing and everyone in
the building was giving cheer after cheer
for the candidate for governor, who stood
quietly by the side of the speaker's desk
and bowed his acknowledgments repeated
ly, waiting for a lull in the outburst of en
thusiasm to make himself heard.
Judge Van Wyck read his address from
manuscript, devoting himself exclusively to
state Issues.

GALESBURG, ILL., Oct, 13 Across the
wind-swept prairies of Iowa the president
of the United States has been whirled to
day on his return trip from the Omaha ex
position. In Western Iowa the crowds
were large and clamorous at every point,
but when the eastern part of the state was
reached their magnitude seemed to swell at
every stopping place, until at Burlington
on the Mississippi the climax was reached.
There the president did not attempt to talk,
but was taken in a carriage through the
brilliantly lighted streets and for twenty
blocks was kept busy lifting his hat in re
sponse to the wild cheers of the citizens of
Burlington.
Possibly the worst crush of people Pres
ident McKinley ever experienced was at the
Burlington station when the carriages
came back. The president was forced al
most to fight his way for fifty yards In
order to reach the entrance to his private
car, but throughout all this he preserved
his good temper, and maintained a smiling
countenance, as indeed has been the case
with him during all his Western trip. As
the train swept Eastward the tenor of the
president's speeches seemed to center more
and more on the question of the foreign
policy of the government, and Judging by
the applause of his auditors, they were
largely in accord with his sentiment.
OMAHA, NEB., Oct, 13. Another perfect
autumn day greeted the president this
morning the morning of his departure
from the great exposition city. Mr. McKin
ley arose at the Omaha Club at 8 o'clock,
and breakfasted with Secretary Bliss and
his young nephew, James McKinley. The
morning meal was taken In a small break
fast room just off from the main dining
hall of the clubrooms. where Secretaries
Gage and Wilson, Postmaster General
Smith and Assistant Secretary Meikeljohn
took breakfast at the same time.
At 9 o'clock the president was driven to
the station, escorted by a platoon of police
and mounted members of the Ak-Sar-Ben.
The ride to the depot was a repitltlon of
the enthusiastic scenes of yesterday, peo
ple lining the streets to obtain a glimpse
of the president. A large delegation ac
companied the party to the train, including
Senators Allen and Thurston, Mayor
Moores, President Wattles, Governor Hol
comb and many others.
The presidential train will make no more
stops en route than Is absolutely neces
sary, making a through run to St. Louis.
GLENWOOD. IA., Oct. 13. President
McKinley was not permitted to leave Oma
ha to-day without making one more ad
dress to his Western constituents who had
gathered at the station to watch the de
parture of his train. Hundreds of eager
people crowded aDout the rear platform
and just as the flyer pulled out the pres
ident said to them his parting words: "I
see that here in Nebraska, as in every
other state of the Union, everybody loves
tho government and everybody loves the
flag, and I cannot tell you how hard It
is for me this morning to bid you all
good-bye."
Just across the river at Council Bluffs
Mr. McKinley again responded to the
cheers of a great crowd.
RED OAK. IA., Oct, 13.-On a special
car attached to the Burlington flyer a
i;uiiiimiice oi ai. Lui3 ousiness men jour

mltteo was appointed by the Business
Men's League of St. Louis to accompany
th president to their city. United States
Senator John H. Geer also made the trip
through Iowa.
CORNING. IA.. Opt. 13 As tho rnln m.
ceeded eastward, through Iowa, the throngs
ui peupie seemea io increase at every point
and the applause and enthusiasm for the
president never abated. At some points
after he had finished speaking, Mr. Mc
Kinley presented to the people the members
of the cabinet who are with him and the
cheers for Secretaries Biles. Gage and Wil
son and Postmaster General Smith were
almost as hearty as those given for the
president. At Hastings, three little girls
with hands full of flowers, were lifted up
to a level with the president. He took the
hand of each little one and thanked them
In a low tone for the roses. The people
surged forward to grasp the hand of the
president and he smilingly accommodated
as many as he could reach. Before the
train started, reaching far out over the
railing, he took the outstretched hand of a
lady who must have been 75 years old. She
said to him: "Mr. President, this 13 the
happiest moment of my life."
MOUNT PLEASANT. IA., Oct. 13. By
far the largest and most vociferous crowd
of the day gathered at Creeton. la,, which
was renched at 2 o'clock. The population
of tie city is" only a little more than 7.000.
but excursion trains had been run in from
roanj neighboring points, and the result
was mass of humanity estimated at 12.
OW. When the presidential party ascended
the platform provided for them, a band
struck u the "Star Spangled Banner."
and from 12.000 throats cheers went up for
the presides! of the United States. Mr.
McKinley's syech at this point was one
of the best of Mie day. nnd here for the

marks. Secretary Gage also spoke briefly.

PORTO RICO GARRISON.
General Brooke Is of the Opinion
That T.000 Men Will Be
Enough.
WASHINGTON, Oct. 13. General Brooke
has been directed by the war department
to consider the subject of a permanent gar
rison for the Island of Porto Rico. With
the troops now on the Island and those en
route, exclusive of those on the island who
have been ordered home. General Brooke's
command consists of about 8,000 men. He is
inclined to the belief that a force of G.OOO or
7,000 will bo ample as a garrison for the
island.
Whether regiments of regulars will be
sent to Porto Rico will depend upon the
recommendation of General Brooke. At all
events it is not likely. In the opinion of the
war department officials, that any regulars
will be ordered to the island before the first
of next year.

TO BE DISBANDED
GENERAL RIOS' COMMAND TO BE
ORDERED TO THEIR HOMES.
PRESIDENT MASS0 PROMISES
HAS A COSFEREXCE AT MANZANILI.O
WITH COLONEL RAY.
Agrees That tbe Best Thing to Do Is
to Get tbe Insurgents to Work
ingThe Color Line Is Caus
ing Trouble In San
tiago. SANTIAGO, Oct. 13. Senor Bartolome
Masso, accompanied by two members of
his staff, arrived this morning at Manza
nlllo from Santa Cruz del Sur, In Puerto
Principe, about seventy-five miles from
Mnnzanillo, where the Cubans now have
their headquarters, and where, on October
20, the Cuban assembly will meet to elect
a new president and to decide as to the
plans for disbanding the army, it dlsband
ment is considered advisable, and as to
other important matters. He called at
once on Colonel Ray, who received him
courteously, expressed pleasure at tho op
portunity of an interview, and said he
hoped Senor Masso would arrange for dis
banding the Cubans under General RIos,
In the neighborhood of Manzanillo, so that
work In the fields could begin. He also
earnestly advised the president of the Cu
ban provisional government to disband the
Cuban troops at all points now in the pos
session of the United States forces. In or
der that the men might give the assistance
so greatly needed to place the country In
a position to recover from the evils of the
three years of war.
Senor Masso readily agreed to carry out
Colonel Ray's request, and said that Gen
eral Rios should receive orders immediate
ly to disband his men. He said he much
regretted the outrages" committed on the
estates at Rigney and elsewhere, but he
thought it possible that the deeds complain
ed of were not done by Cubans, but by
Spaniards. Thoroughly in accord with Col
onel Ray's proposal to get the Cuban sol
diery at work throughout the province of
Santiago, he promised to do all In his
power to bring about this result, believing,
he said, that the sooner the country was
prosperous and happy, the sooner Cuba
llbre would be an accomplished fact, and
believing that the best policy for the Cu
bans now was to co-operate heartily with
the Americans in their plans for building
up the country.
"I believe," Eald Senor Masso, In termin
ating the interview, "that Cuba in two
years will be more prosperous than ever
before."
The Interview lasted over an hour and ap
parently was satisfactory to both. Senor
Masso leaves to-morrow on his return, go
ing by the insurgent steamer Fernando.
A question cropped up that is causing
General Wood, who. In the absence of Gen
eral Lawton, is in command of the military
department of Santiago, not a little per
plexity. A majority of the officers of the
Immune regiments from the Southern states
object to eating at the same restaurants
with colored officers, the most of whom
are from the Northern states. Some of the
colored men, apparently desirous of bring
ing the matter to an Issue, formerly re
ported that they could not get served at
the principal Spanish restaurants under ex
isting; Spanish law, whereas the American
law compelled a proprietor of any house ot
public entertainment to serve all who pay.
The restaurant proprietor involved com
plained that when he served the colored
officers he, would lose almost his entire
patronage, as a majority qt bis customers
were Southerners. General Wood has ap
pealed to the common sense of the colored
officers and advised that the restaurant be
turned Into a club.
General Wood, who Is determined to get
over the Jamaica emigration problem, will
ship back all who desire to return by the
Reina de Los Angeles next week, when the
steamer Is to be sent to Kingston for dry
dock repairs. She can carry S00 and will
probably take her full complement,
Quintln Bandera, the famous negro gen
eral of the Cuban army, will soon be ap
pointed assistant chief of police of San
tiago. Colonel Hood's Second immnue regiment
(white), now at Altosengo, Is under orders
to be ready at eight hours' notice to pro
ceed to Holguin, this province, which the
Spanish are about to evacuate. The pe
culiar condition of the surrounding coun
try calls for the presence of United States
troops as soon as the Spanish leave.
FIVE KILLED BY AN EXPLOSION.
Sudden Flooding of a. Burning Mine
Results In a Serious
Disaster.
TAMAQUA, PA,, Oct. 13. Five men were
killed and eleven injured by an explosion
of gas this afternoon in colliery No. .8, at
Coaldale, near here. The dead are: Fire
Boss Thomas Smith, William Reese and
Mattle O'Larkey, of Coaldale, and William
Cook and John Konlcka, of Lansford. All
were married and leave largo families.
The most seriously Injured are William
Lawton, of Lansford, badly burned; James
Rodgers, of Coaldale, leg broken; James
Walter, of Coaldale, burned about the
head: James Powell, of Summit Hill, shoul
der broken; Evan Evans, of Coaldale,
seriously burned about face nnd body;
Daniel Dorrian. Lansford. leg broken:
Recco Price, Coaldale. badly burned; Pat
rick O'Donnell, Summit Hill, burned about
the body: John Gallagher, Lansford, nerv
ous shock.
The colliery Is the largest producer of
four In that valley owned by the Lehigh
Coal and Navigation Company.
It has a capacity of over 300,000 tons of
coal, and employs 500 hands. In conse
quence of fire, which originated In the left
section of the mine some months ago, 6hlfts
of men were put to work driving holes
from the gangway, through which water
was to be forced upon the flames. AVhilo
the men were bulldng a dam to back up the
water this afternoon, the gangway caught
fire. Nearly a hundred thousand gallons
of water was turned Into the holes, and
almost instantly a terrific explosion oc
curred, followed In quick succession by four
lighter explosions of such force that the
gangway was torn up for over 300 feet, and
the workmen were blown about in all di
rections. Rescue gangs were put to work,
and an hour later It was thought that all
the dead and injured had been found, al
though the search was under way to-night
when the fire was still burning. The holes
forced volumes of escaping gas from some
of the old workings back upon the flames,
causing the explosion.

IS IT PEACEOR WAR?
Conference of Commissioner Jones
Wltb the Indians To-day Is
to Decide It.
AVALKER, MINN.. Oct. 13. General
Bacon has fully completed his plans for a
campaign against the Indians, provided he
finds that one will be necessary. In case
the council with the Indians does not go
the right way, the Fourth and Seventh
regiments will be sent for.
To-day's conference between the hostile
and friendly Indians preliminary to to-morrow's
council with Indian Commissioner
Jones, Indicate that the hostlles will lay
down their arms and that a settlement
will be reached.
MINNEAPOLIS, MINN., Oct. 13. The
Journal's staff correspondent at Walker.
Minn., wires: "Matters arc rapidly moving
to a climax and the question of peace or
war will probably be definitely settled
within forty-eight hours. To-day the In
dians are holding a powwow in the woods
back of Leech Lake agency, at which It Is
expected they will decided whether or not
to give up the men wanted by Marshal
O'Connor. Upon this hangs the issue of
the whole matter. Their decision will be
tommunicated to another conference with
the government officials at the agency to
morrow. If they refuse, unrelenting war
will be waged by General Bacon, who is
getting very tired of powwows, but who,
nevertheless, is leaving the present conduct
of affairs entirely to Commissioner Jones.
To whip the rebels into subjection or to
annihilate them will be no easy task, even
to an Indian fighter of General Bacon's
resources and experience. Thj hostlles are
well armed. They are dead shots and
they know every Inch of a very difficult
country. Experienced men declare that
not enough troops can be landed In Walk
er to capture the hostlles. The dense Jun
gle of tho woods Is penetrated by trails
known only to the Indians, who would be
able to use them for ambush and escape.
Ths only feasible plan seems to be to
wait till the water courses freeze over and
then make a winter campaign, with hun
ger and famine as allies. General Bacon
has made his plans for the campaign that
may be necessary very carefully and while
he realizes the obstacles in the way, he is
confident they are not insurmountable.""
AVASHINGTON. Oct. 13. A dispatch was
received at the war department from Min
nesota to-day asking for EOO Springfield

The war department granted the requisi

DOG'S QUEER HATRED.
"Oriel Bill' and Its Dislike of Post
menObjects to Soldiers, but
Likes Policemen.
Animals, like human beings, have been
known to exhibit strange antipathies to
ward certain persons and things, dogs,
perhaps, more so than any other of our
fourfooted friends.
That famous canine. Oriel Bill, of Ox
ford, was for a time such a violent hater
of pestmen that It was not safe for any
un:foimed letter carrier to approach the
Mitre, where Oriel Bill held undisputed
sway. Accordingly, arrangements had to
be made for all missives to be left at an
adjoining house by the postmen In order
to save their feelings physical as well as
mental and the dog from venting his cu
rious aversion upon them.
The same precaution had to be taken In
ths case of another, but less famous,
car.ine. Until a postman was foolish
enough to throw a stcne at this animal,
without the least provocation, it was on
good terms with all the letter carriers who
called at the house. After that, however,
a furious hatred of her majesty's postal
servants took possession of this previously
amiable cur, and wn.-n it had severely bit
ten one of the postmen they all refused
with one accord to deliver letters at the
house.
The owner of the dog complained to the
British postofflce authorities, says Tit-Bits,
but the latter supported their subordinates
in the attitude they had taken up, and in
the end the complainant arranged for his
letters to be delivered at a p.ace where
there was no canine that delighted to
bark and bite.
At a hotel in a West of England town
there Is a dog which exhlbus u,, ln.cs
dislike for soldiers. AVhatare the why and
wherefore of this feeling toward our gal
lant redcoats It Is impossible to say, but
the sight of one has the same effect on
this eccentric canine as a red rag has on a
bull. The consequence Is that the dog has
to be kept severely under restraint, so
that soldiers can come and go without the
risk of losing a portion of their anatomy
in the process. What makes his antipathy
toward them all the more remarkable Is
the fact that the animal shows a decided
partiality for policemen.
A terrier belonging to a friend of the
writer will run a mile at the sight of a
eiphon. When It was considerably younger
than It is now Its owner deluged the dog
with a siphon of soda water, and ever
since it has exhibited a mortal dread of a
siphon, full or empty. The remembrance
of that unexpected bath is evidently re
sponsible for this extraordinary aversion,
DISMISSAL FOR M'INTYRE.
Oregon's Chaplain Found Guilty Un
der All the Charges Made
Against Him.
AA'ASHINGTON, Oct. 13. The navy de
partment to-day made public the findings
and sentence of the court-martial In tha
case of Chaplain Mclntyre.
The chaplain was charged, first, with
scandalous conduct tending to tho destruc
tion of good morals, with three specifica
tions; second, conduct to the prejudice of
good order and discipline, with four spec
ifications; third, conduct unbecoming an
officer of the navy, three specifications.
AH these charges were founded upon the
chaplain's criticism of his superior officers
In a lecture delivered In Denver. All these
specifications were found proved as al
leged. Tho accused wn3 declared guilty
under the three charges, and he was sen
tenced to be dismissed from the naval serv
ice of the United States.,
Tho case Is now under review at the
department.

DONE TO HOLD GOLD.
Bank of England Raises the Discount
Rate From 3 to 4 Per
Cent.
LONDON, Oct. 13. The rise in the dis
count rate of the Bank of England from i
to 4 per cent to-day momentarily 6cared
tho markets. People Jumped to the con
clusion that the bank's action was due to
thg war scare and to Lord Rosebery's
sptech. Calm reflection, however, has
shown that It was only a measure of pre
caution. The persistent buying of gold by
the United States and Germany has pre
vented the bank from securing any; and
as a consequence the bank's reserve 13
lower than it has been since April last,
when a 4 per cent rate was adopted.
According to the best Informed opinion,
the rise in the rate is a purely financial
measure, without any connection with or
hint from the government of the delicate
political situation.
Moreover, looking to the actual large
trade Indebtedness to the United States,
the bank directors were apprehensive that
low rates here might facilitate a heavy
drain of gold to America later In the sea
son, when the American crops come more
freely Into tho market.

MILES AT OMAHA
HE WAS THE CENTRAL FIGURE OF
ARMY AND NAVY DAY.
ENTHUSIASTICALLY GREETED
SPEAKS UPON THE NECESSITY FOR
A LARGER ARMY.
General A. W. Greely, Senor Gonsales
De Qnesada and Senator Allen

doc Club, of Topeka,
Makes a. Hit.
OMAHA, NEB., Oct. 13,-General Nelson
A. Miles was the central figure In the re
ception tendered to army heroes at the
exposition to-day. It was another ideal
exposition day. The morning dawned from
n sky unbroken by a single cloud, and the
sun dispensed a flood of yellow light that
robbed the frosty air of its chill and ra
diated resplendently from dome and col
onnade. The crowd was by no means suggestive
of the surging multitude of the day before,
but it far exceeded that of ordinary occa
sions. Thousands of people who had been
unable to get to the grounds to see the
president came out early to be sure and
see General Miles, and before U o'clock
the auditorium was filled to the doors.
General Miles entered the building a few
minutes later, escorted by President Wat
tles and accompanied by his staff. Gen
eral Greely, several members of the dip
lomatic corps. Governor Holcomb and mem
bers of the local reception committee.
President Wattles called the crowd to
order and Introduced the Modoc Glee Club,
of Topeka, Kas., which contributed a mag-
"C?,ntJt!nditIm of a Patriotic chorus.
Hall. Flag of the Free." An enthusiastic
encore was answered by another Inspiring
melody, and then Governor Holcomb was
introduced to speak In welcome to the
guests of the day.
The governor alluded to General Miles
as the hero of two wars, which Incited a
tumult ot cheers and handdapplng which
did not subside until President Wattles
led the distinguished soldier to the front
of the platform, when the crowd arose and
greeted him with three ringing cheers. An
allusion to General Greely produced a sim
ilar demonstration, and it was repeated
when General Miles was Introduced. He
said:
"I am deeply gratified that the people of
the West have set aside one day of this
exposition in honor of the army and navy
of the United States. By the army and
navy I mean every part of the physical
force that has added to the strength, per
petuity and grandeur of this republic"
The speaker contended for the necessity
of a military force commensurate with the
interests and importance of the nation.
There should be at least one well equipped
and disciplined soldier to every LOCO pop
ulation, he said. As the nation Is devel
oped, the army and navy should grow la
proportion.
The Introduction of General A. W. Gree
ly was followed by another hearty dem
onstration. His sympathetic reference ta
General Wheeler, who had been expected
ta speak at this time, but who was trying"
to dc. his duty In the face of nis terrible
bereavement, was heard with a silence
that was an eloquent expression ot the
smpathy of the audience.
Senor Gonzales de Quesada received a
greeting that carried all the hearty enthu
siasm that had characterized th;se which
had been extended to the previous speak
er. He declared that the emotions that
a,most mastered him at this moment were
sufficient proof that Cuba is not ungrate
i?" He eloquently pictured the disjia
tlon In Cuba, but declared that there Is
one flower that stll .ossoms. and th's Is
the gratitude of the heroes of three gen
erations to the people who had fought
side by side with them to glvo them lib
erty. The exercises closed with a short ad
dress by Senator Allen, who spoke In be
half of the veterans or the civil war. and
then the official party adjourned to tbe
cafe, where an elaborate luncheon was
served.

BEGGAR IS WORTH SI 00,000.
Charles Broclcrrttz Destroys His Eye-
sight to Excite Pity Sent to
BlaclriTell's Island.
New York Speclil.
Charles Brockwltz, worth J100.000. was
sent to Blackwell's island to-day as a pro
fessional mendicant. He came to this coun
try from Russia about twenty years-ago.
He found begging more profitable than
labor and made a fine art ot It.
To Incite pity he deliberately destroyed
his eyesight by gazing open eyed directly
at the sun. About two years ago Brock
wltz was arraigned In a police court,
charged with begging. He was sent to the
Island when the magistrate heard the truth
about him. AVhlnlng, tearful, still posing
In his professional character. Brockwltz
calmly drew a bulky bundle from his rags
and passed it to his uncle. The police in
tercepted the package, which contained
J3.G00.
Many times since Brockwltz has been ar
rested for begging. If the fine was less than
J5 this model of mendicancy would always
pay It drawing a nickel or a cent at a
time from his ragged clothes and moaning
plteouly over every coin. If the fine were
more than to he would take Its alternative
