Result of Civil Suit for Al
leged Failure to Fulfill
INDIGNITY TO COMPOSER
Culmination of Trouble Between Mas
cagni and His Man
ONE OF THE LATTER WASHES
HIS HANDS OF THE AFFAIR
Bail Fixed at $12,000, Which Was Fur
nished Late Last Night—Counsel for
the Italian Genius Asks for an Im
mediate Hearing, but It Will Not Be
Held Till Monday.
BOSTON.Mass., Nov. B.—The financial
troubles existing for some time be
tween the Mascagni Opera company
and its managers reached a climax to
night when Mascagni, the composer
leader, was arrested upon a civil suit
for alleged failure to fulfill his v :on
tract, brought by Mittenthal Bros.,
who, with Samuel Kronberg, were his
original managers. Mr. Kronberg
washed his hands of the whole affair,
as he asserted, several days ago and
left for New York.
As soon as the writ was served upon
Mascagni at his hotel, his counsel peti
tioned Judge Sheldon, of the superior
court, for an immediate hearing of the
case, to which he claimed his client
was entitled under the statutes. The
justice refused to proceed with the
hearing, saying that it should be held
in open court, and made the writ re
turnable in the first equity session of
the superior court on Monday next.
Bail in the case, which had at first
been fixed at $12,000, was reduced to
$10,000, and this was furnished late to
night by Richard Hurd, Samuel Kron
berg and Louis Kronberg.

Pulling, in Opposite Directions, a
Hawser Around His Neck.
NEW YORK, Nov. B.—Mandarin an ele
phant of the Barnum & Bailey circus, was
executed by strangulation tonight in his
cage in the main deck of the steamship
A two inch hawser was placed in a loop
around Mandarin's neck and each end of
the hawser was fastened to the drum of
a "wench" engine. The engines were
started af the same time and ran slowly
at first until the hawser was taut about
the animal's neck, when the speed was in
creased and the hawser quickly tightened.
In a minute and a half the hind legs
sank to the floor of the cage and the ele
phant was unconscious. Just eight
minutes after the engines had been start
ed Mandarin was pronounced dead. The
cage containing the body was then hoisted
from the ship by a crane and loaded on a
barge, in which it was towed about twenty
miles out to sea and sunk, the cage being
weighted with about 500 pounds of old
__Mandarin was the largest elephant in
captivity at the time of his death and
had been with the Barnum & Bailey cir

tons and stood nine feet ten inches high.

Expedition to Bacolod Will Probably

a Statement That the Eighteenth
Regulars Laid a Large Strip of Ter
ritory in Ashes.
MANILA, Nov. B.—The sultan of
Bacolod has sent a letter to Capt.
Pershing, commanding the American
troops at Camp Vicars, island of Min
danao, disclaiming any intention to
make war on Americans. He denies
molesting Americans and says he is
not in possession of stolen American
property. Brig. Gen. Sumner, com
mander of the department of Minda
nao, has been preparing to send a
column to Bacolod, but the expedition
will probably be abandoned, although
the military will watch the sultan
and determine if his friendly assur
ances are genuine. It is expected that
the completion of the Iligan road and
the occupation of the north shore of
the lake will finally show the attitude
of the Moros. They continue to show
as great friendliness as possible.

They Didn't Burn.
WASHINGTON, D. C, Nov. B.—The
war department made public today a
statement by Gen. R. P. Hughes, in
reply to charges contained in a letter
written by Henry Loomis Nelson, in a
Boston newspaper, Aug. 25, 1902, and
which letter is embraced in a pamphlet
signed by Charles Francis Adams, Carl
Schurz, Edward Barrett Smith and
Herbert Wash, committee, under the
title of "Marked Severities, Secretary
Root's Record in the Philippines War
fare." Gen. Hughes quotes the follow
ing extract from the letter:
"The Eighteenth regulars marched
from Iloilo, In the south, to Caplz, in
the north of Panay, under orders to
burn every town from which they
were attacked. The result was they
left a strip of land sixty miles wide,
from one end of the island to the other,
over which the traditional crow could
not have flown without provisions.
That is what burning means and no
more. It is not done for the fun of
the thing, but out of stern necessity."
Gen. Hughes, who commanded in
Panay at the time, says the burning of
lolilo was shown by the official records
of the insurgents' council to have been
the work of the insurgents. He says
the troops, by "some work, some fight
ing and much- exposure to fire, were
able to wrench a portion of Iloilo from
After reviewing the work of the
Eighteenth infantry in the province of
Panay, Gen. Hughes says:
"It has thus been shown that the
Eighteenth regulars had no order to
burn all towns from which they were
attacked, and that they did not leave
'a strip of land sixty miles wide,' etc.,
but, as a matter of fact, they did leave
the country uninjured, the town and
villages intact, the roads improved,
bridges rebuilt and the 500,000 natives
of the section covered were left in the
full enjoyment of their property and
They Are Out of Reach.
An investigation that has been made
by the war department into the allega
tion by the anti-imperialistic commit
tee, delivered at the Lake George con
ference, to the effect that Father Au
gustine, a Catholic priest, was killed
by the water cure in the Philippines,
has apparently confirmed the main
fact that the man died as the result of
the administration of the cure, but it
also has been found that the persons
who administered the cure to secure
insurgent funds of which he was the
custodian were volunteers from Ver
mont, and are now beyond the reach
of military justice, having been mus
tered out of the service.

Output to Be Increased —The Machines

Special to The Globe.
NEW YORK, Nov. B.—A man identi

company explains the formation of the
Minnie Harvester company as follows:
"When the American Grass Twine
company was formed it took over the
Walter A. Wood harvester plant at
St. Paul, which covers upward of
twenty-eight acres. This plant turns
out the Minnie harvester, using the
binder twine manufactured by the
Grass Twine company. It is intended
to enlarge the works and increase the
output. The harvester combination
formed last summer took in practically
al^ the leading manufacturers of har
vesters with the exception of our plant,
and we estimate that on the basis' on
which those plants were absorbed ours
is worth fully $6,000,000. We have
made this the basis of capitalization of
the Minnie company, all of whose stojk
is owned by the Grass Twine company.
"The .new company will enter into
active competition with the Interna
tional company and some of the stock
njay later be sold to the public. If at

done when the plant is in the hands

POLICEMAN PUTS A
STOP TO BURGLARY
Captures One of Two Men in the Act

Patrolman Suddith put a clever stop
to a daring attempt at burglary at 1
o'clock this morning.
Suddith was patrolling his beat, and
when near the corner of Eva street
and Fairfield avenue observed two
men in front of the building occupied
by the Silver Star Candy company, a
wholesale confectionery house.
Suddith drew his gun and descend

one of the twain was already inside
the building; the other stood without
watching. Holding the man on watch
up with his pistol. Suddith demanded
the surrender of the one in the dark
ened store room.
His prisoner made a feint as though
to get away, and the man on the inside
took advantage of the diversion to
spring through the door into the street
and disappear while the policeman was
engaged with his pal.
The man captured gave the name of
Harry Cary, and his address as 277
East Seventh street. He said that the
man with him was Roy Kusic, and
that they had no burglarious inten

WHEN IN WILD STATE
Superintendent of Yellowstone Park
Recommends the Introduction
of European Game Birds.
WASHINGTON, D. C, Nov. B.—The
annual report of the acting superin
tendent of the Yellowstone Natonal
Park predicts that there will be a con
siderable increase in every species of
large game throughout the reservation.
It says the bears are harmless while
left alone and kept in a perfectly wild
state, but when fed and petted they
lose all fear of human beings, cause
damage to property and are dangerous
to tourists who trifle with them.
It is suggested that the black cock
and capercailzie, game birds of North
ern Europe, be introduced into the
park. Only two forest fires of any
size occurred during the year and
neither caused great damage. *t is
recommended that Fort Yellowstone be
enlarged to a four-troop or squadron
post and be garrisoned by the troops
of two different regiments. The total
of all visitors to the park during the
season was 13,433.
