LONDON, June 2D. Last night passed
with less incident at Buckingham Palace
than any other night since the operation
was performed on King Edward. There
were fewer watchers outside the palace, the
public apparently having accepted the offi
cial announcement that the King has
passed the point of Immediate danger. The
following bulletin was Issued at 9 o'clock
"The King feels stronger In spite of some
discomfort from the wound. Nothing has
occurred to disturb the satisfactory prog
ress the King 13 making."
This bulletin was not expected until 10
o'clock, consequently the few persons who
were passing the neighborhood of the pal
ace were the only ones attracted to the
announcement. When the footmen had
posted the notice, however, the crowds soon
increased, early church-goers stopping to
read the latest new3 and passing on with
expressslons of thankfulness.
A bulletin posted at the palace at 4 o'clock
this afternoon said the King's progress was
in every way satisfactory and that the lo
cal discomfort had decreased.
Xing Edward's physicians announced at
9:40 o'clock to-night that the royal patient's
progress was entirely satisfactory. No
further bulletins will be issued to-night.
Sunday has again been a day of intercess
ional services throughout the kingdom for
the recovery of King Edward In the
morning a vast crowd of the general public
. gathered at St. Paul's Cathedral. There
was also present a representative gather
ing: of government and colonial officials and
uniformed colonial officers. The Duke and
Duchess of Connaught and their children
and Lord and Lady Lansdowne sat under
the dome. An impressive service was con
ducter by the Rishop of Stepney, the Right
Rev. Cosmo Gordon Lang, and at its con
clusion the whole audience sang "God Save
Queen Alexandra, the Prince of Wales,
and almost all the other members of the
royal family now In London, attended a

at nocn in the chapel royal at St. James
(' Sir Francis Knollys, the king's private
' secretary, the Right Hon. Sir Dighton Mac
' Naghten Probyn, keeper of the private
purs4, and extra equerry to the king, and
almost the entire royal household attended
the services in Malborough House chapel
and the Queen, who had not previously left
the precincts of Buckingham Palace since
the King was stricken, received a most
sympathetic greeting. The public was de
lighted with such evidence of the king's
Throughout the United Kingdom all re
ligious denominations made similar inter
cession for the sovereign's recovery. Mgr.
Del Val, the Papal envoy to the coronation,
conducted a service in Brompton Oratory
this evening, his congregation Including
Sir Wilfrid and Lady Laurier and other
Canadians. .Buckingham Palace has worn
a. gayer appearance to-day than for a week
past, and , the constant coming and going
of royalty and the stream of carriages bore
testimony to the feeling of increased con
fidence that the King would recover. In
the afternoon a party of princesses drova
to Sheen House. Richmond, and the Prince
and Princess of Wales paid a long visit
to Buckingham Palace.
This evening the Queeen and the royal
ladies dined within sight of the public
through the window in front of the
palace, many thousands of persons being
gathered !n the space before the building.

Rassln Offered No Sympathy.
ST. PETERSBURG, June 20. The fact
that no representative of the court or Min
istry has called at the British embassy
here to offer the sympathy of Russia in
the matter of the illness of King Edward,
has occasioned much comment and is gen
erally attributed to Russian chagrin on ac
count of the conclusion of peace in South
Africa. It is said upon excellent authority
that Count Ilmsdorf, the minister of for
eign affairs, adtnittted that this peace had
upset Russia's calculations, which were
based upon a much longer continuance of
Great Britian's difficulties in South Africa.
Count Lamsdnrf is reported to be particu
larly nettled because Great Britian did not
consult the Boer delegates in Europe in re
gard to peace.

MARTINSVILLE. Ind.. June 23.-James
Owens, a young married farmer, who lives
on Robert Maxwell's farm, three miles
south of here, was shot in the right breast
this afternoon by Archie Wade. The phy
sician says the result of the wound Is in

arrived there, and told him he was going
to Bloomington to spend the fourth of
July with an uncle and took his clothes
with him. Wade and Hadley both worked
on a farm operated by Oscar Hart of this
city. Wade told Hadley he had settled up
yesterday with Mr. Hart and was paid up
in full. Mr. Hart says no such settlement
was made and that he owes Wade $14 and
knew of no intention of Wade to quit his
employ. The sheriff reached rennington's
home and secured no clew as to Wade's
whereabouts. Wade is reported to have
fled over the hills in the direction of Bloom
ington. Mrs. Pennington says that when Owens
came up to them In the carriage a quarrel
ensued between him and Wade, and Owen
attacked Wade with a knife when Wade
pulled a revolver and shot him. They drove
at once to Hadley' s home with Wade and
knew nothing further of his whereabouts.

MAJ. GARDENER'S REPORT
HE NOW SAYS IT WAS STRICTLY
CONFIDENTIAL TO MR. ROOT.
Rasl of Ills Statement that the Water
Cure "Was Administered Outrage
MANILA. June 29. The board of inquiry
into the charges of cruelty, etc., brought
by Major Cornelius Gardener, Governor of
the province of Tayabas, against American
officers and soldiers, being deslrious of
completing its sittings, held a session to
day. The recorder objected to the admission
as evidence of addresses from Filipinos,
on the ground that these were merely
buncombe and not worthy of consideration.
He said that every regiment was de
luged with such addresses, the worst
regiments getting the most praise. He
said that Major Gardener should have
called the afliants when ho was at Lu-
cana, in , Tayabs province, and that
the court would personally undertake
to obtain six hundred affidavits regarding
conditions in Tayab.ts. The Filipinos said
the recorder, are designing anil past-masters
in the art of affidavits and addresses
and the board had allowed the affidavits
presented by Major Gardener, but refused
to receive more.
Major Gardener, continuing his testi
mony, said he had considered hi-? original
report to be strictly confidential, and for
Secretary of War Hoot, and that since lie
wrote this report and during the present
investigation he had heard testimony,
which he presumed was true, which, h id
he heard before might have caused him
materially to have altered his report. He
said that insurgent troops might have been
temporarily disbanded and hidden and no
one except themselves be cognizant of their
existence. Regarding the alleged cases of
outrages committed by five soldiers. Major
Gardener said he did not desire to bring
these cases before the board and that they
probably were not true, although he had
made his report in g ood faith as the orig
inal affidavits proved.
Regarding the charge that American
soldiers in the summer and fall of V.n had
administered the water cure to natives,
.M.iior Gardener said he received infnr?n:i-
I tlon to this effect from deputations of citi
zens from towns near which the cure was
said to have hern given.

WASHINGTON, June 23. The work of
Congress is now practically closed, so that
It Is possible to sum up the record of what
has been accomplished during the past
seven months, which constitute the first
session of the Fifty-seventh Congress. The
session has been marked by exceptional
business activity, with many questions of
far reaching general Interest engaging at
tention. With the exception of the Cuban
reciprocity bill most of the larger subjects
of general legislation have been enacted as
laws or will become such before the session
Notable among these larger measures is
the isthmian canal bill, which consummates
the efforts of a half century to link to
gether the waters of the Atlantic and Pa
cific. Aside from its national and interna
tional Importance this bill probably involves
a larger sum of money than that covering
any other single undertaking by the gov
ernment outside of war expenditures. The
Philippine civil government bill is another
measure of far reaching importance, ex
tending to our remote Pacific possession a
system of Internal government, together
with coinage, currency, banking, corpora
tion, timber and homestead laws.
Among the other important general laws
enacted are those repealing the war revenue
taxes; extending and making more effective
the Chinese exclusion laws; establishing a
tariff for poods to and from the Philip
pines; extending the charter of national
banks for twenty years; establishing a
permanent census office; restricting the
sale of oleomargarine by placing a high
tax on imitation butter; providing a con
sular and til lomatic service for Cuba; es
tablishing an extensive system by which
the government will aid in the irrigation
of the arid sections of the West.
The repeal of the war revenue taxes re
duced taxation STJ.l'jo,. and is said to be
the largest single reduction of taxation
ever made in this country. By this step the
last of the taxes imposed at the beginning
of our war with Spain was wiped out.
The Philippine tariff act imposes 73 per
cent, of the Dingley tariff rates on articles
coming from the Philippines to the United
States and also imposes on articles enter
ing the Philippines from the United States
the rates of duties established by the
The oleomargarine act results from sev
eral years of agitation. It places a tax of
10 cents a pound on substances colored to
THE IRRIGATION ACT.
The irrigation act is of special impor
tance to the development of the West. It
creates an irrigation fund in the Treasury
Department, Into which Is to be paid the
proceeds of the sales of public lands in the
arid States. This fund, in turn, is to be
used In storing water and establishing ir
rigation systems, the irrigation sections to
be open to homesteaders, who are to be
charged a proportionate share of the cost
of the improvement.
The Chinese exclusion law continues ex
clusion "until otherwise provided by law.''
and also applies the exclusion "to tlie
island territory under the jurisdiction of
the United States."
Aside from these Important laws, there
are a number of other measures of general
im;ortance which have passed one or both
houses, but have not progressed to the
final stage. Thee include the anti-anarch
legislation, which grew out of the assassin
ation of President McKinley. Bills restrict
ing anarchy and throwing safeguards
about the President have passed both
branches of Congress, but it has been im
possible to reach an agreement in confer
ence, so that the subject goes over until
A bill giving statehood to Arizona, New
Mexico and Oklahoma, known as the omni
bus statehood bill, passed the House, and
the Senate has determined to take up the
matter early in the next session.
The ship subsidy bill secured early at
tention in the Senate, but the end of the
session has come without the. measure be
ing reported to the House. As it passed
the Senate, the bill gTants graded subsidies
to steam and sailing vessels of American
build. In the House it has been deemed
desirable to let the subject go over until
the short session, when it is expected that
a bill on the subject will be reported and
uru-d to the passage.
The bill creating the Appalachian forest
reserve, including a vast tract in the Appa
lachian mountain section of the South, has
received favorable attention in both houses,
but has gone over for final adjustment of
differences until next December. Another
bill passed by the Senate and likclv to be
come a law changes the Marine Hospital
Service to a national health bureau and
gives the bureau larger powers and facili
ties for co-operating with the state health
authorities in quarantine and health af
fairs. NO PACIFIC CABLE ACT.
The bill to establish a cable between the
United States. Hawaii and the Philippines
was retired by defeat in the House of Rep
resentatives. Several other measures have advanced to
a certain stage and have then halted with
out much prospect for further advancement.
These include the till for the election of
United States senators by direct vote of
the people. It passed the House by prac
ti?a!ly a unanimous vote, but in the Sen
ate has received little attention and is not
likely to pass.
The House passed a bill relating to the
immigration laws, codifying and amend
ing these laws relating to important
changes. It has been reported to the Sen
ate but there is not much prospect of its
passage at this session.
The bill defining the meaning of conspir
acy in injunction cases passed the House of
Representatives, but has not made much
progress in the Senate. On the other hand
the Senate passed an important measure
creating a Deparmbent of Commerce, to
be presided over by a Cabinet officer, but
it has made no progress in the House, not
having been reported in the committee on

cember. Another financial measure, known
as the Hill bill, providing for the coin
age of sub?idiary silver and for the re
tirement of the present standard silver
dollar, has passed the House, but has not
been acted on in the Senate.
Among the important measures of gen
eral legislation not heretofore named which
have been finally enacted as laws are the
following: To prevent the sale cf firearms,
opium and Intoxicating liquors to the na
tives of certain of the Pacific islands; to
promote the efficiency of the revenue serv
ice and to provide for the retirement of its
officers; to refund, the duty paid in Torto
Rico on articles imported from the United
States during the military occupation; ap
propriating. JJoo.oOO for the relief of the vol
cano sufferers at Martinique; authorizing
the erection of Y. M. C. A. buildings on
United States military reservations; regu
lating the introduction of eggs of game
blrd3 for purposes of propagation; provid
ing for the protection Of game in Alaska,
particularly the large game, such as moose,
caribou, etc.; extending an invitation to the
French government to participate in the
unveiling In Washington of the statue of
Marshal De Rochambeau; refunding the
amount of legacy tax paid by charitable,
benevolent and eleemosinary institutions.
The amount of appropriations for the ses
sion will run unusually high, owing in part
to the amount required to build the isth
mian canal. When Mr. Cannon submitted
a general estimate of appropriations a few
weeks ago he made the total up to that
time JG01.413). Since then the canal bill
has passed, carrying a present' appropria
tion of $lO,0'iu.yo for the franchise and
enough more for the rights of Colombia
and for beginning the work to carry the
total up to SrAOnO.Ooi). The entire cost of
the undertaking is approximately $lSI.000,O00.
Mr. Cannon's estimate also omitted con
tracts for future expenditure included in
the omnibus public buildings, the omnibus
claims and various other bills, aggregating
a large amount. This will carry the total
for the session, figuring In these future
amounts, almost, if not quite, up to the

bill provided for an addition of two ar

gunboats to the navy, and a provision is
still in controversy as to whether one of
each class of these ships shall be built in
There have been several investigations
during the session which have attracted
much attention. An Investigation of condi
tions in the Philippines conducted by the
Philippine commission of the Senate has led
to the examination of many witnesses high
in the conduct of civil and military affairs
in the islands. Another Senate Inquiry has
related to the condition cf affairs In Cuba,
especially as to sugar. In the, House sensa
tional charges made in connection with the
purchase of the Danish West Indian islands
led to an Investigation which disclosed the
groundless nature of the charges.

CAPE IIAITIEX, Haiti. June 23.-There
has been much righting here to-day and
great excitement prevails. Admiral Kil

and a large quantity of ammunition at 4
o'clock this morning for. the better pro

Since 6 o'clock this morning there have
been several lively engagements between
the men from the fleet and the revolu

guns were set up in a commanding position
by General Firmin's forces and an attempt
was made to drive the men from the north
from their positions. Notwithstanding the
fire from the machine guns detachments of
the northern revolutionists made several
attacks on General Firmin's followers and
the latter were eventually dislodged.
In the meantime the vessels under the
command of Admiral Killick were bom

taken without previous notification to the
foreign consuls here. There has been a

EAU CLAIRE. Wis., June 20. Thomas F.
Frawlcy, widely known as a lawyer, and
for years a prominent politician of Wis
consin, died here this evening under pa
thetic circumstances. His wife has been
in a hospital in St. Paul, recovering from
an operation. Realizing the certainty of
his own death. Mr. Frawlcy wished to bo
brought home on a special train from Med
ford, where he had bet n taken suddenly ill,
in the hope that a r.ccond special train bear
ing bis wife to this city from St. Paul might
arrive here in time for him to see her bf
fore his death. He was perfectly conscious
to the last, giving directions about his busi
ness and personal matters, but death
claimed him more than two hours befon
the train with his invalid wife arrived. It
is thought the shock to her in her present
weak condition may be very serious.

ELOPERS TAKEN OFF STEAMER.
Frenchman Who Ran Oil with n JIcs
ienn Giri Accnsed of Stealing;.
NEW YORK. June 'X. When the Ward
line steamship Havana, which arrived here
to-night from Vera Cruz and Havana, left
the former port, the had on board as pas
sengers Amado Raves, a young French
man, and Isabelle La Cavallerie, a Mexi
can girl. Raves was charged with em
bezzlement by the father of the girl, who
had the Mexican authorities cable Co the
Mexican consul at Havana to arrest the
couple. The Mexican consul consulted with
the French charge d'affaires at Havana
and together they presented the case to
Senor Zaldo. the Cuban secretary of for
eign affairs, who decided that it vias possi
ble to hold the couple, and took them from
the steamer when she arrived. Captain
Robertson protested, but to no avail.
When Raves and Miss La Cavallerie
boarded the steamer at Vera Cruz they had
no clothes but thoe they wore, and it was
evident that the irl had just come from
school. They told the passengers they in
tended to be married as soon as possible.
The passengers supplied the couple with
clothing and requested Captain Robertson
to marry them. The captain refused to do
so, because the girl is only fifteen years
old. Raved threatened a damage suit
against the Ward line, and says he will
also invoke the aid of France, of which
country he is a citizen.
M'KINLEY'S WHITE OAK.
One That Was Planted lr the Late
President Promises to Live Long:.
Special to the Indianapolis Journal.
WASHINGTON, June 2?. The White
House grounds at Washington are noted
for their large and beautiful trees, some
of which have been there for years. One of
the prettiest of the younger trees Is the lit
tle white oak planted by President McKin
ley. It was planted by him at 9:13 on the
morning of the first day of November, 1mS.
Norris. the old gardener, who held the tree
while the President shoveled in the earth,
said that at the time it was planted he
did not expect it to live a month, but Just
at present it looks as though it were good
for a century. The little tree stands Just
in front of the old conservatory, now be
ing torn down to make room for the new
office building of the present chief execu
tive. During the heat of the day one gen
erally can see the President's two game
chickens resting peacefully in its shade.
Just to the right as one enters the White
House grounds is a flourishing chestnut oak
that was planted by Mrs. Cleveland during
her husband's last administration.
IN MEMORY OF THE DEAD
FIRST LEGISLATIVE SESSION OF
HOUSE ON SUNDAY IN DO YEARS.
Tributes Paid to the Late Representa
tives Cnmmings, of New York, nnd
Oteyt of Virginia.
WASHINGTON. June 29. The House of
Representatives held a session to-day to
pay tribtite to the memories of the late
Representative Amos Cummlngs, of New
York, and the late. Representative Peter J.
Otey, of Virginia. By special direction of
Secretary Moody, the Marine Band was ia
attendance in the lobby In the rear of the
hall and rendered an appropriate musical
programme. The widows and families of
the deceased occupied the speaker's pew In
the gallery, and delegations from Typo
graphical Union, No. 6, of New York, the
Letter Carriers' Association and the New
York Pilots' Association came here to
honor Mr. Cummings's memory. The pub
lic galleries were well filled. The eulogies
were exceedingly Impressive, especially
that delivered by Mr. Cannon, of Illinois,
the veteran chairman of the appropriations
committee, who paid a tribute, from the
heart, to the lofty character and manly,
honest character of Mr. Cummlngs.
Although services have been held in the
House on Sunday on previous occasions,
notably the death of Henry Winter Davis,
this was the first In ninety years that Sun
day was made a legislative day and that
the House met on the Sabbath, with a
speaker, clerk and all the other parapher
nalia which accompany the actual transac
tion of legislative business. Frequently in
times past the House has been in session
on Sunday, especially at the close of a
short session, but such sessions always
have been continuations of the legislative
day of Saturday, and the journal on Mon
day showed no session on the Sabbath.
In this case, however, the Journal of to
day will be that of a tegular legislative
da j'. In order to find a precedent for the
session to-day the House managers went
back to 1811, when the House held a ses
sion on March 2, because of the pressure of
public business two days before the final
adjournment, March 4.
Those who paid tribute to the memory of
Mr. Cummlngs were Messrs. McClellan,
Foss, Cannon. Sulzer, McCall, Myer, Clark,
Dayton, Goldfogle, Lessler and Hooker.
Eulogies were then pronounced on the late
Representative Otey, of Virginia. by
Messrs. Jones. Jenkins, Flood. Lanham,
Hay. Morris, Swanson, Dearmond. Rhea,
McCall, Rlxey, Graff. W. W. Kitchen and
Lamb. Then, at 3:25 o'clock, as a further
mark of respect to the memory of the two
deceased members, the House adjourned
until 11 o'clock to-morrow.
SPENT A NIGHT AT SEA
EMPEROR WILLIAM AND THE E3I
PRESS ABOARD THE METEOR.
His Majesty Was Stabborn nnd W
Compelled to Drift for Hours
KIEL, June 23.-9:30 p. m. Emperor Wil
liam's American-built schooner yacht Me
teor, the Cicely, owned by Cecil Quentin,
of England, and the other yachts which
started In the schooner race to-day are at
this hour drifting toward home. The Meteor
is In the lead and the Cicely is second.
limpcror William and the Empress are on
board the Meteor and probably wdll spend
most of the night on the water. The guests
invited by the Emperor to dine to-night on
board the imperial yacht Hohenzollern have
long since dispersed. Emperor William
resolutely declined to leave the yacht until
the finish of the race and the judges and
the sailing committee sent a launch to
port to bring out provisions to the vessel
which carries them.
The yachts, carrying full light-weather
canvas, crossed the starting line at 11:35
yesterday morning in the following order r
The Lasca, the Clara, the Cicely, the Iduna,
the Nordwest and the Meteor. The wind
was dead ahead for the entire distance to
the first mark, twelve miles from the start
ing point. At the end of an hour the Meteor
worked out ahead of the Cicely, which had
already distanced the other contestants.
The Cicely challenged the Meteor for the
weather berth, slowly passed her and
lengthened her lead. The time at the first
mark was as follows: Cicely, 3 hours 24
minutes 40 seconds; the Meteor, 3 hours '"J
minutes 2"J seconds.
As the wind had dropped a good deal the
sailing committee decided to shorten the
course by one side of the triangle and to
instruct the yachts to come home direct
from the first mark. The committee con
sequently borrowed all the available steam
launches in the neighborhood, and, with a
member of the committee on board each,
the launches started to intercept the
yachts and Inform them of the decision
before they rounded the first mark. Acting
under these instructions, the Cicely rounded
the mark and started for home, but Km
peror William objected to this change of
the course, because the Meteor was coming
on 'the reach, which would show her best
points. The sailing committee counter
manded its previous instructions. The
Cicely meantime had lost the five minutes
she had gained and, bting to leeward, she
lost live minutes more in Jibbing. All the
yachts, with their spinnakers boomed out
on starboard, then started for the second
mark, seven miles away. On this reach the
wind continued to die away. The Meteor
rounded the second mark a long way ahead
of the other yac hts, and when she" started
on the homeward leg of eleven miles it was
almost completely calm. All the observa
tion yachts and excursion steamers left
the racers at this point. The yachts were
The sailing committee has derided If the
Meteor beats the Cicely to give the latter
yacht a special prize in view of the rom
plicatlon which arose from the orders to
change the course.
The race of Friday has been awarded to
the Cicely. In this contest the Meteor fin
ished t-even minutes and twenty-two sec
onds ahead of he Cicely, but under h r
time allowance he Kr.gllsh boat won by
one minute and eleven seconds. Fpon this
occasion M. Guilleaume. the owiur of the
Clara, which was also in the race, lodged a
protest against the Cicely, declaring that
the rules required her to carry two anchors
at her bows instead of one. The Judges re
served the decision of Friday because of

White river and Fall creek on the rampage,
although no great damage .has been done i
yet. Both streams are out of their banks
and have overflowed the bottoms and low

been the flooding of cellars In the west

damage has been done to growing corn
