"President tlnderwoon of tho l!rle,
who was reported to havo resigned,
h", still president of the Kile, and
Will contlinie In that position. This
k the substance ot a telegram re
ceived this morning by U. O. Wil

that tho president hns no intention

Tiie news came as a surprise to
many of the lirle employes here, ns
many of thenf and oen the officials
wero of the opinion that theio was
some truth In the icport that had
been circulated nil ovpr the 13rle
There were many different tumors

effect that he had been employed

.Many newfipapsrs. In the east pub
lished accounts of lls resignation and
the probable resignation of other
officials dlrce,tly under Underwood.
As a reason for the president's
supposed action was glen the finan

Will Be Hard to Get Historical Data If
JProfesBor Frederick Starr, head of
the anthropology department of the
University of Chicago, In relating to
his class some of his experiences In
the Congo Incidentally called attention
to the fact that the old-fashioned fam
ily bible, with its birth and death rec
ords, was rapidly disappearing from
homes In civilized countries,
"In not one-halt the families to-day
wore we able to get tho oxact age
and place of birth and other desired
data," ho said. "It is even more diffi
cult to get such information In Afilca.
1 think If the Plble, or some bucIi book
as the old-fashioned Bible of the chl
llzeri home existed these historical
facts would be Uisinore easily learned,
and of course the moral Influence
would bo greater." '
Piofessor Starr also called atten
tion to the motto of the Congo Free
State "Labor nnd Progress." The
"motto, he Bald, was well known among
the natives, young and old.
"It Is notorious here that few Amer
icans know the motto of their own
itate," concluded Professor Starr.
On n recent occasion "down south"
three little negroes, Moses, Jackson
and Tlnimy, were callod Into "the

them that he would give ten bright

would tell him what were the three
best things in the woild. The coins
were placed on a table and the white
man held out three straws of different
lengths, tbe boy who should draw the
longest straw to havo the first say.
Tlmmy, tbe happy winner of this
sttaw, wsb asked:
