CONSCRIPTION IS THREATENED
LONDON. Nov. 9.—The feature of the
lord mayor's banquet was Lord Salis
bury's speech in response to the toast
to "His Majesty's Ministers." Referring
to the progress of the war in South Afri
ca ,the premier said:
"1 strongly deprecate the spirit of pes
simism so frequently heard in the utter
- ances of. some of our public men as to
the war in which we are engaged. Un
like the wars of former years, no longer
does the capture of the enemy's capital
and the dissipation of his field forces
constitute a conclusive victory. We are
now confronted by a system of guerrilla
war, which must be slowly and effective
ly stamped out. We are progressing
-■, slowly, perhaps, but steadily.
Cannot- Tell All He Knows.
"I cannot take the public wholly into
the confidence of the government. .". It
would be most imprudent publicly to
state all we are doing, weekly and montn.
ly, at the front; but what I emphatical
ly declare is that whatever delays are
encountered are due neither to a lack of
earnestness and ability of our generals
<n tne field, nor to a neglect to comply
with, all of their demands on the part of
the home government.
"I deeply regret the ravages in the war
in the colonies, to which we are anxious
to accord the fullest practicable measure
of self-government. But we have had
neighbors in South Africa whose con
duct for years has been a menace to the
stability of that section of our empire.
Now we are j engaged in removing this
- menace; and we are determined to do it
so effectually that it will never require
doing again." C :l':v"
This declaration was received with cor
dial but by no means enthusiastic ap
plause.
May Try Conscription.
During the lengthy cabinet conference
this week, a representative of the Asso
ciated Press learns the question of en
forcing the old ballot laws came up for
discussion. Many of the cabinet min
isters were strongly in favor of putting
In force this form of conscription for
which certain obsolete laws already pro
vide. Thus new legislation would be ob
viated. The war secretary, Mr. Brod
rick, has already caused guarded feelers
on this matter to be circulated in the
press, for it appears to be almost impos
sible to keep the home forces up to ade
quate strength and supply the necessary
reinforcements for South Africa on the
volunteer system of enlistment alone.
Such a strenuous measure, however,
doubtless will cause &< storm of disap
proval in Great Britain and it will not
be enacted unless the war situation be
comes graver.'
What changes have, come over the state
of the country, in two years can be judged
from the fact that the war office has
closely examined the old ballot laws and
has prepared an elaborate plan by which
they can be spnrvg upon the public at a
moment's notice.
Appalling Death Rate in Camps.
The Daily News today exhaustively sur
veys the concentration camps in South
Africa, with the following conclusion:
The truth is that the death rate in the
camps is incomparably worse than any
thing Africa or Asia can show. There is
nothing to match It even in the mortality
figures of the Indian famine, where
cholera and other epidemics have to be
contended with.
The government's advertisement for
teachers for the camp children, setting
forth that the "term of employment will
be one year certain," is prominently dis
played as evidence that the authorities
. have no intentions of ending "wholesale
destruction of human life."
The Daily News urges all human men
not to wait for official reports, but to in
_ slst on "camps being broken up and peo
ple distributed among their friends or re
moved to districts where a fresn attempt
can be made under competent organiza
tion and with some regard to the
preservation of life—that or extermination
and an eternal stain on the name of
England."
PORTO RICO DOING WELL
CTSTOMS RECEIPTS BIT LITTLE
SHORT OF TARIFF DAYS.
SAX JUAN, P. R., Nov. 9.-The total
customs receipts for the month of Octo
ber are $96,555, against $97,344 in October,
1900. This was when the tariff between
Porto Rico and the United States was in
force. The fact that the receipts were
only $486 less than In 1900 indicates that
the foreign trade has increased to such
an extent that the receipts are practical
ly the same as with the tariff. While
trade with the United States has greatly
increased, the island bought in Europe
more than formerly. Every ship brings
2,000 to 5,000 packages.
This is a most excellent indication of
prosperity, as a large proportion of the
foreign imports are In the nature of lux
uries which the island could not afford
in 1900. The total value of the exports for
October was $691,C05. For the same month
in 1900 the exports were valued at $262,513.
The foreign exports amounted to $255,444]
while for the month of J^tober, 1900, the
foreign exports totaled $19~>,454.
Thirty-eight foreign vessels entered the
port during the month, as against 195 do
mestic vessels.
POLITICIANS CONFERRING WITH MR. HANNA
NEW YORK, Nov. 9.—Senator Hanna
reached this city today. A number of
Republican leaders culled on him at his
hotel, but the senator said there was
nothing about his meeting with them
that partook of the nature of a confer

KENOSHA, Wls., Nov. 9.—The greatest
excitement prevails in Brassville, a sub
urb of Kenosha. More than a dozen peo
ple have been seized with ptomaine poi
son, as a result of eating cheese which
had been purchased from a small store
in the neighborhood. The first case of
the poisoning appeared several days ago,
and the doctors of the city have been
kept busy in the suburb since. As yet
no deaths have been reported, but sev

condition.
Those affected are: Joseph Borkenha

family of four, all seriously ill; a small
child of William Barnes; two children of
Mr. and Mrs. Carmen Desimena. The
symptoms have been the same in every
case. After the victim had eaten of the
cheese he was seized with violent fits.
Today a formal complaint was filed with
the health officer, who will make an in

BERLIN, Nov. 9.—Germany has runs
with anti-Chamberlain indignation meet
ings all the week. These meetings have
been confined hitherto to students and
veterans' societies, but a conference of
the Thurir.gian pastors' societies has de
cided to invite the Protestant clergymen
throughout Germany to make a common
protest against the utterances of the
British colonial secretary au Edinburgh,
Oct. 23, when he referred to the conduct
of the German troops during the Franco-
Prussian war of 1870-71. The Jena stu
dents voted to petition the imperial chan
cellor, Count yon Buelow, to instruct the
German ambassador at London to de
mand satisfaction for the insult. At all
students' meetings the speakers used
violent language, and all the published
calls are hotly worded.
The Leipzig Veterans' league ll&s de
clined to issue a call for a meeting, tak
ing the ground that it is useless to be
ceme excited over Mr. Chamberlain,
"since he is known to be the commonest
kind of a liar."
The newspapers are beginning to warn
the people from different standpoints,
however, that the matter is being over
done, some of them claiming that Mr.
Chamberlain is too far beneath German
contempt for anything which he may say
to be looked upon as an Insult to the
soldiers of Germany. Others say that
the excitement will result in a further
straining of the relations between Ger
many and Great Britain.
Five hundred women are attending the
lectures at the Berlin university, more

Among them are the daugthers of Count

rector of the university, Prof. Cekule yon
Stradowitz, opposes tne attendance of
women at the universities, and refuses
to permit a woman to address the stu
dents' society, which his predecessors al
lowed.

OMAHA, Neb., . Nov. 9.—The McCaull
"Webster Grain company, operating a
large line of elevators in lowa and Ne
braska, has begun suit to compel the
Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railroad
company to give shipments cf grain des
tined to Southern points for export the
same privileges enjoyed by shipments
going by way of Chicago and New York.
The grain company claims that rates via
Chicago to New York have been made
prohibitive by Eastern trunk lines, and
that the Milwaukee road is discriminat
ing against the grain company In ; the
way of switching and furnishing cars to
carry grain beyond its lines to the gulf
seaboard via this city and St. Louis.
Thus it asks a restraining order to pre
vent the railroad from refusing to ac
cord the elevator companies' grain all
the privileges of other freight. -, -
The case is of widespread importance,
as it will govern the routing of export
grain to a great extent from both lowa
and Nebraska, whether it shall go by
way of Chicago and Eastern trunk lines
or St. Louis and Southern railroads.

hig-h character of Mr. Roosevelt and ex
pressed the greatest confidence in him.

ROOSEVELT ACT COMMENDED
: CHICAGO, Nov. 9.—At the banquet of
the Merchants club of this city, held this
evening, the chief speaker was James jB.
Dill, of New York, who spoke on "Trusts,
Their Uses and Abuses." Mr. Dill
described a trust as a "dominant com
bination of money, property, business or
commercial power or energy.".; He said
in part:;:'.^. ..-V.'- " "'
--"If the charter of every prominent com
bination of capital or dominant company
expressed the real; intent .of the or
ganization it would state as the purpose
of the company 'to dominate in the man-;
ufacturing, to dominate in the transporta
lion'" and what is quite as important 'to
dominate In the market' of the product.
It is not the combination in itself which
is vicious, but it is the methods employed
by some corporations in ■ the attempt to
dominate \ which create the . tendencies
that are dangerous." ;
Mr: Dill divided into two classes the
dangers of the trust movement:
First, dangers to the combinations, and
■ secondly, ". dangers ' from the combination
to the public. - Speaking of the dangers to
the corporations, he said:
"A menace both to the combination and
to the people is found in the competitive
strife among states for revenue: from
corporations. Legislative inducements by
way of private and public - statutes to
corporate organizations are the order of
the day. 'Protection for domestic cor
porations; war upon foreign "corporations'
Is the legislative theory of many states.
Dangerous Statutes, v .
Today ;we - find . states giving express
permission to their own' corporations to
do in other states what such corporations
are expressly, prohibited from doing at
home. The present tendency in some
states in state legislation respecting in
dustrial corporations 1» to encourage and
increase state revenue rather than
towards soundness and integrity. of legis
lation. ;; \. j-■— - ,VJ r_ "i '_, ;;-;.. ;,
"For years the state of . New Jersey
stood pre-eminent among the ' charter
granting states, until from the ; revenue
derived - from corporations she practically
abolished the necessity for. state taxes.
At the beginning of this month the state
of New Jersey had in its treasury over
$2,000,000 as a surplus. In 1901, the state of
New York gave way to the contrast be
tween the state of its ; treasury and that
of New -Jersey, and proceeded to out
jersey New Jersey in so-called liberty to
corporations.- Maine and. North Carolina
■ followed , New York and-'Connecticut.-
Delaware and West Virginia adopted
every provision which could be suggested
to .make-these" states successful charter-'
granting states, and finally South Dakota
comes forward with a proposition that it
will grant to a ; corporation everything
that it will ask and for a consideration so
minute as to be .hardly worthy: of men
tion. >
"This tendency is not toward wisdom of
legislation, but toward absence of restric
tion, to the granting of powers rather
than to the maintenance of proper con
trol." v
Mr. Dill suggested that . the Roosevelt
act of 1900 in New York was now a mat
ter of interest, as indicative of the
features of a national corporation act,
which might be acceptable in Washing
ton. -•;..

STITUTION FIGHT.
MONTGOMERY, Ala., Nov. 9.—Monday
the citizens of Alabama will vote for the
ratification or the rejection of the consti
tutioi: formulated by the recent constitu
tional convention. The calling of the
convention was a measure of tne Demo
cratic party, but on the question of rati
fication neither the Democrats nor the
Republicans draw party lines. Many
prominent Republicans favor the adop
tion of the new organic law. Many in
fla?r.ual Democrats are opposing it.
The proposed, constitution has for its
main purpose tHe disfranchisement of the
negro, and at the same time to leave the
ballot in the hands of every white man
in the state. The advocates of the new
instrument say that this will be brought
about by th* 1 adoption of the proposed
constitution. It provides for a lieutenant
governor, increases the terms of state of
ficers to four years; lowers the limit of
taxation and makes many other changes
from the fundamental law under which
the state is now being governed.
NEW STEEL TRUST SURE

OF FIFTY MILLIONS
Charles M. Schwab Active in Per
fecting: the Xeir Combination in
Order to Assure Peace
in the Trade.
PHILADELPHIA, ,Kov. 9.—The North
American tomorrow will say: A new
$50,000,000 steel corporation is being
formed for the purpose of uniting in one
powerful combination the plate mills of
the country. Ten or more plants, includ-
ing Pennsylvania companies that are now
Ooing a large business, are to be absorbed
by the new concern.
Four of the properties are east of the
Alleghenies. These *-*. the Lukens iron
w^orks of Coatesville, the Tidewater Steel
company, Chester; the Central Steel com
pany. Harrisburg, and the Worth Bros.'
millsi These four represent an active es
timated capitalization of about $10,000,000.
It is understood that the Jones & Laugh-
Hn company, of Pittsburg, a corporation
with $20,000,000 capital, will enter the com
bination and will be the strongest con*
cern in it. Details regarding the western
interests that will be represented are
lacking, but these will probably be made
public in the course of a 1 few days in an
official anonuncement of the project.
Charles M. Schwab, president of the
Tnited States Steel corporation, attended
a conference held in this city early in
the week and had much to do with shap
irtg the plans of the concern. This is be
lieved to indicate that it will be operated
in harmony with the billion dollar cor
poration, and that eventually the new
company may become Identified with Mr.
Schwab's corporation.
The joint output of all the companies
aggregates 475,000 tons. The new com
pany will take up the securities of the
constituent concerns, both by means of
cash payments and an exchange of stock
upon a basis not yet made known.

MADISON ROOTERS GO CRAZY
Special to The Globe.
MADISON, Wis., Nov. 9.—When Minne
sota lines up against Wisconsin at Camp
Randall next Saturday there will be play
ed the greatest football game that the
West has ever seen. Two rivals of long
standing, each with a veteran team, the
best in its history, will meet in a con
test that will decide the Western cham
pionship, for, barring Michigan, whose
meteoric rise has given her some claim
to consideration, there are no other team 3
in the same class with Wisconsin and
Minnesota.
Wisconsin men are keenly alive to the
importance of the game. There is but
one question among students and towns
men in Madison, "What about the Minne
sota game?" The whole state is aroused,
and the campaign of the stalwarts has
taken second place to the prospects of
the Badgers. Naturally the team shares
in the general atmosphere, and the play
ers are thinking of the big game night
and day. With the student body the
condition of the players and the relative
merits of the two teams are almost the
only topic of conversation.
Wisconsin has the greatest football
team in her history. That is admitted
by all. She has had great teams In the
past, great players whose places are not -
filled so well today. There is no kicker"
to compare with ODea, nor can the fa
mous back field, composed of Cochems,
Richards, Peele and Gregg, be equaled by
the present backs. But for all-around
football, from end to end and center to
fullback, the present team is conceded
to be the strongest that ever represented
the cardinal.
The line is the best that ever has worn
a Badger uniform. Of only average
weight, it is fast and aggressive and de
serves much of the credit that the backs
receive .for their ground-gaining ability.
The right side of the line Is particularly
strong, due largely to the work of Capt.
Curtis at tackle, undoubtedly the premier
tackle of the West. Wisconsin men who
saw the memorable contest with Yale
In 1899 still love to relate how Curtis play
ed all around Stillman, and while he will
be up against a gitat player In Fee, Wis
consin men do not doubt for a minute
that he will more than hold his own. The
other tackle position is filled by Haumer
son, the enly new man In the line. He
played on last year's scrubs, and has won
hie position this year by hard, consistent
•£brk. He weighs only 175 pounds and
lacks experience, but is developing lhto
a strong defensive player.
Great Center Trio.
The center trio Is the best that Wis
consin has ever had. Lerum, a strong,
aggressive guard, has been moved from
his place beside Curtis over to strengthen
the left side of the line, while Schreiber,
who has been acquitted of all charges of
professionalism, will fill his place at right
guard. Schreiber is light for a guard,
weighing but little over 180, but his ac
tivity goes far to make up the deficiency.
Leon at center is a tower of strength. He
snaps the ball well and takes care or
his man in a way that leaves little to
be asked, besides getting more fumbles
than any other man on the team.
Wisconsin has two experienced ends
this year. Juneau at rignt end is the
lightest man in the line, weighing only
156. He is extremely fast and won his
spurs when ODea was doing the punting,
and to use an expression of an old
alumnus, "those were days wTien ends
had to be ends." At left end there is
Abbot, a tall, lanky Yankee, weighing
175 pounds and using every ounce of it In
every play. He tackles viciously and
plays strong offense though he is not so
fast a man as Juneau.
Behind the line are three veterans who
have made "Wisconsin's reputation for
fast playing. Larson at right half Is
conceded to be the greatest line bucker in
the West, and while weighing only 16S
pounds is well night a whole team in de
fense. At "the other half is Cochems, an
extremely fast man, who is especially
etrong in a broken field and can pick an
opening quicker than any man on the
team. Driver, at fullback, is a reliable
punter for forty yards," bucks the line
well and is a whirlwind in the interfer
ence. Marshall, who will play quarter
unless Fogg gets in shape, is a fast, ag-

HARKONIZATION OF THE NORTH
WESTERN 'RAILWAY INTERESTS
HELPS SPECULATION'
OPTIMISTS BANK ON SUCCESS
Tinge of Mystery Surrounding- the
... Negotiations Offers Opportuni
ties for Skillful Operator*
to Make Money
NEW YORK, Nov. 9.—More than all
other \ causes, the I important underlying
motive of the ,' outburst of activity in
stocks here was the; confident statements
current that a definite agreement:: had
been reached for the harmonization of
the Northwestern-railroad quarrel. The
stocks concerned in that dispute have
made up the largest part of the specula
tion, " and., the whole transcontinental
group has shown sympathy. Nothing has
been learned from authoritative sources
to show how far railroads not Immedl
-ately parties to the dispute are to be
affected by the settlement; but specula
tion in Wall street has clung to the con
viction that not only wasi the control of
the Burlington system to be harmonious
ly adjusted, between \ the Union Pacific
and the Northern Pacific-Great Northern
interests, but that ( a concord of opera
tions was to be assured between. all the
transcontinental lines.
The actual news on the subject has
been confined to skillful surmise based
on the price movement of Individual
stocks and on the general fact that the
leading capitalists involved are agreed in
their admissions that the negotiations
are proceeding satisfactorily and give
promise of an agreemsnt to insure the
interests of all parties. No official in
formation of details has been forthcom
ing, and current surmises have varied
from «3ay to day, giving opportunity to
professional operators in stocks to make
skillful use of the mystery for effective
speculation.
I The opinion has been gaining force in
the financial district that the sentiment
•which was supposed to bear directly on
the control of Northern Pacific has work- ■
ed ; back Ito the direct control :of ! Burling
ton itself, which was the real prize which
was sought ; throughout. : If Union Pacific
were granted a proportionate share ;of
holdings in Burlington itself, it is easy
to see how : the problem -of financing • tfie
project; would be simplified, and the ob
ject furthered of realizing part of the
enormous capital -which was locked ur
in the struggle for control last spring.
The Union Pacific holdings of; Northern:
Pacific would, in fact," net Jbe . necessary
for control ;of the Burlington. The mar
keting of these holdings would, Indeed,
be a formidable undertaking. The cur
rent rumors of an intended increase in
the ; dividend rate on the Northern Pa
cific stocks would run with this explana
tion of the terms of the settlement.

GLOBE WASHINGTON BUREAU; .
Post Building. Room 45.
WASHINGTON, D.C.; Nov. 9.—lf Pies- '
ident ; Roosevelt approves plans recom
mended by Secretary Hitchock,-of the in- "
terior department, the Dawes Indian'com
mission will soon be abolished. On .many
points the president and secretary are
entirely in harmony. The subject will
treated in the annual message to con
gress, and in the meantime Mr. 'Hitch
cock, is making: every effort to : keep his
plans secret. The little which has leaked
out has resulted in a rumor that Tarns
Bixby, secretary of the commission, •is
about to resign. Both ; Secretary Hitch
cock and Commissioner Jones took occa
sion today to deny this report in the .
strongest terms. They said Mr. ■ Bixby a
work was entirely satisfactory, and they
would deplore any published statements
that changes in the commission were im
minent.
■ The fact of the matter is the president
has been convinced that the Dawes com
mission has outlived its usefulness. . The
chairman's duties are purely nominal,
and he seldom attends any sessions. The
vice chairman and secretary, Mr. Bixby,
is all there is to the commission, and
Secretary Hitchock does not consider
him. worth the price of three men.
Messrs. Breckirtridge and Needles, the
other members, have not been in har
mony with Bixby, and of -late; it is re
ported here, they have been trying to
bring about Bixby's removal. j,t j-
The work of the commission'has not
ben progressing to the satisfaction of the
department, and the purpose now in view
is to do away with Head wood and make
things move. The president is anxious
to put an end to the policy of pauperiz
ing the Indians. He also wants more
speedy action in allotting lands in sev
eralty and opening reservations. Hitch
cock would have put an end ;to Kixby's
tenure of office last spring if President
McKinley had not-- intervene^. Now he
will accomplish that result in his own in
imitable way. One ofthe methods possi
ble would be to omit the appropriation
from the-next Indian bill. This has been -Ji
discussed. The secretary promises to
find some way to accomplish the work cut J
out; for the commission If Roosevelt will ';.-.:
give him full swing, and the president is
inclined to do that.
& Representative Page Morris Is Interest
ing himself in this ; Indian business. He ||
called .on the commissioner and the sec- X
■ retary this afternoon, and then had an
other tjflk with the. president.
Mr. Bixby's : official term expired the
19th day of May last, but owing to the • '■■':
policy adopted by President MeKinUy of V
making few changes in federal; office* . N
when the senate was not in session, and V
the further fact that important work vag
-pending before the commission, which it
was desired that Col. Bixby should com
plete, no action was taken at that time.
It was currently reported about the
time of . President McKinley's j assa?sir ,1
tion that a change had been agreed upon,
and that D. P. Dyer, of St. Louis, wlio
was a : member of the commission which
supervised the drawing for the lands In
the Kiowa; Commanche and -Wichita
countries, in Oklahoma, had been agreed
upon as Mr. Bixby's successor.. If simply
a change of men is made, there is little
doubt that Secretary Hitchcock will rec
ommend' the appointment of Mr. \)\<r
: unless President Roosevelt has some
other man in view for the place.

WASHINGTON. Nov. 9.-The site of the
government building at Helena, upon
which the big gold strike is 7 reported- to
have been made, cost the .United "States
ab.ut ?54,000. The credit of selecting this,
site, - which may net ' the j government a
profit of ■ several millions, belongs to
George B. Martin, of: New York, who
was appointed by Assistant " Secretary
Curtis, under the Cleveland administra
tion, to select the sites for the public
buildings at Helena, Butte,!Boise, Omaha
and other. Western cities. Originally, the
site consisted of half-a block on the side
ot Mount Helena. An excavation was
made there several years ago, but no gold -
was discovered. Later, through the in
fluence of former Senator Carter, 'the
other half of the block was purchased^ . -
but the original site for the building was: •
moved about forty feet to the westward
The contract for the building was let, and
it is probably - that while excavating on
this new. property the vein of quartz was
discovered. That portion of the city of
Helena lying' in Dry gulch, even the
streets; has been mined for gold.
In Helena," as in other mining towns in
Montana, it is custoWry. in 'selling build
ing; sites: to except mining rights. The
government, ! however, - has : insisted upon
obtaining .-a"-, title in fee simple to it?
building : sites, and -it is a fact that the
United States, owns the only complete
title rin Butte. If there is a big vein on
the Helena site, therefore, it belongs to
the 'United States. Moreover, by a dis
tinct : clause'- in : the contract with " those
.who, are 'to erect the building, it is pro
vided : that '.-if any part of ■ the- excava
tion be : found to contain mineral; it must
be stored on the premises, and the same
shall remain the property of the govern
ment."
