"I have not a penny. I am ruined."
said he. "But I don't worry about my
self. All that Is on my mind now Is to
save the others involved in this crash."
Andrews said he could satisfactorily
explain all if given opportunity; that
he had plenty of collateral when loans
were made, and that If given a chance
he could arrange the matters so that
everybody would get his money. His
railroad concession alone, he said, was
sufficient to pay every cent the bank
owes. He said his troubles began with
the drop in Amalgamated and accumu
lated as the market went down.
"These criminal proceedings are aV
right." said he. "but if the fellows think
they can get their money by putting me
behind the bars for a year, where I can
get rest. I am satisfied.
"The people need not worry about
public funds which were in the bank.
They will be all restored, although it
will perhaps break the directors who
will have to make good the deficiency."

The property in dispute is made land

shanty, and one of the first shots struck
Kirk in the head. Portorus returned
the fire with a Winchester.
A riot call brought a squad of police,
who found Kirk lying in the snow ont-i-ide

firing at Portorus as fast as they could
work their rifles. The police surround

occupants surrendered, and were taken
to the station.
When the police returned they found
Streeter had barricaded his house, but
after a parley he surrendered. He car

DUAL ALLIANCE FOR EAST.
Move Originates in Boxer Troubles
and is Designed to Maintain
Integrity of China.
London. Feb. 12. An important par
liamentary paper was issued tonight
giving the terms of the alliance be
tween Great Britain and Japan for the
preservation of China and Corea. The
paper covers a dispatch sent by Lord
Lansdowne, secretary of state for for
eign affairs, on Jan SjO to the British
minister at Tokio, and comprises a
signed copy of the agreement.
In explanation, the paper says the
agreement nuy be regarded as the out
come of the events of the past two years.
Througho'.t the Boxer troubles. Great
Britain p.nd Japan have been In close
and uninterrupted communication and
have l een actuated by similar views.
"V.'e each desire," says Ixird Lans
downe, ythat the Integrity and inde
pendence of the Chinese empire should

no disturbance of the territorial status
quo, either in China or the adjoining
Lord Lansdowne says the British
government was largely influenced in
entering upon this important contract
by the conviction that it contains no
provisions which can be regarded as
aggressive or self-seeking. He says it
is concluded merely as a measure of
precaution and In no way threatens
the present position or the legitimate
interest of other powers.
The secret was so well kept that the
paper, issued after parliament had ad
journed for the night, announcing the
first important alliance between the
western and yellow or Asian race,
comes as a startling surprise to the
public and although the idea of an al
liance with Japan is likely to meet
with great approval, the outcome of
the sensational departure will be an
ticipated with uo little anxiety. It is
regurded as a direct move against Rus
sia, and to explain the abandonment cf
the colony of Wei-HaJ-Wel.
WITH THE SOLONS IN
THE HALLS ON CONGRESS
AT NATIONAL CAPITAL
Measures That Receive Attention in
Both the House and the Senate
and the Casual Incidents as They
Develop in Both Branches.
Washington, Feb. 12. A stirring de
bate on the general Philippine question
was precipitated in the senate today,
the principal participants being Sena
tors Piatt of Connecticut and Hoar of
Massachusetts. Senator Teller of Col
orado had concluded for the day his
nrguni"nt against the enactment of the
pending Philipine tariff bill.
In response to some statements he
had made, Senator Piatt directed the
senate's attention to the situation in the
islands, as he viewed it, maintaining
that great progress was being made by
the government in subduing the insur
rection. He referred to the elections
lor municipal offices in the various
cities of the islands, and to the estab
lishment of schools for the education of
the Filipino children.
Senator Hoar ridiculed the statements
of Senator Piatt, and in a facetious vein
adverted to the efforts of the American
government to control the Filipino peo
ple. The remarks of the Massachusetts
senator aroused Senator Piatt, who de
livered a notable speech in the course
of which he referred to Senator Hoar
in pretty sharp terms. His speech was
listened to by the senators on both sides
of the chamber with profound attention.
In conclusion, he paid an eloquent trib
ute to the efforts of the Vnited States
to carry the principles of free govern
ment to every territory where it had
In reply. Senitor Hoar delivered nn
Incisive criticism of the action of the
Philippine commission, declaring he
had been taught to judge men rather
by their actions than by their words,
and by this standard he could not judge
the Philippine commissioners with any
degree of favor.
The senate passed a joint resolution
submitting a constitutional amendment
changing the time of the presidential
inaugurations anil termination and
commencement of congresses from
March 4 to the last Thursday in April.
WORK ON THE OLEO BILL.
House Adopts Some Important
Amendments Prior to the Pas
sage of the Act.
Washington, Feb. 12. The voting on
the amendments to the oleomargarine
bill in the house today indicated a con
siderable change of sentiment since the
last congress, when the bill had 106 ma
jority, and that the opposition to the
measure has gained strength. While
the passage of the bill is not endangered.
jt is not likely that the majority tomor

The opposition today was strong
enough in committee of the whole to
udopt two important amendments, one
providing that nothing in the act should
be construed, to prevent the manufac
ture and sale of oleomargarine in any
state for consumption entirely within
such state, and the other to provide for
the inspection and branding of renovat
ed or process butter. The latter amend
ment was especially obnoxious to the
friends of the measure, and when tin
bill was reported to the house a sepa
rate vote was demanded on it.
That vote was pending when the
Although the amendment commanded
a majority of 20 in the committee of the
whole, where no record was made, it is
l'ot unlikely that the action of the com
mittee will be reversed tomorrow, when
the members are obliged to go on rec
ord. Several committee amendments
adopted today changed the phraseology
of the bill, the important one being that
making a 10-cent tax apply to oleomar
garine made in imitation of butter "of
any shade of yellow." Considerable
feeling was injected into the proceed
ings towards the close of the session.
SAID TO BE HEAVY.
Boers Cut the Convoy to Pieces and
Capture Outfit of Sixty
London. Feb. 11. A report from Gen
eral Kitchener at Pretoria shows that
last week was the liveliest with the
I heaviest losses on both sides for sev
eral months. General Kitchener gives
the Boer casualties as 69 killed, 17
wounded, 57 surrendered and 574 pris
oners. The British captured 480 rifles,
one pompom and the usual amount of
munitions and live stock.
The most serious British loss during
the week was the capture of 60 donkey
I wagons, convoyed by 160 troops. At a
.point 30 miles from Beaufort West,
'Cape Colony, the enemy swooped down
and cut the convoy before assistance ar
rived. They were able to remove only
12 wagons, and burned the rest. In this
engagement the British loss was two of
ficers and 11 men killed, and one officer
and 47 men wounded, while the Boer
lost 24 killed and 47 wounded.

Springfield. O.. Feb. 10. The largest
fire in the history of Springfield broke
out in the Champion Chemical plant of
the East street shops at 9 a. m. and by
10:30 12 manufacturing plants were in
ruins. Tne estimated loss is 500,000,
with insurance of $300,000. The fire
started from an explosion of chemicals
in the Champion Chemical plant on the
fourth floor. Strong southwesterly winds
were blowing, and, with amazing rapid
ity, the fire ate its way along the build
ings which were all under one roof, ex
tending 800 feet along East street and
1,200 feet along Railroad. Efforts of the
fire companies were- of no avail. One
plunt quickly followed another until all
were ablaze. The workmen saved very
little equipment. Every building was
ilestroyed, nothing but the walls being
stTiiding. Ten firemen were caught In
the oflice of the Krell-French company,
and to get out rolled down the steps and
