Charles Beckwith, marching with Sheridan post No. 4, of the department of Michigan, dropped dead in the parade from heart disease at Michigan avenue and Madison street. William H. White, an old soldier of i-Eau Claire, Wis., went insane in the Central police station last night over the disappearance of his family.

For the office of president of the Woman's Relief Corps, for which an election will be held to morrow, five candidates have already been put forward. Mrs. Mary C. Hart well of California, and Mrs. Mary L. Carr of Colorado, are in the lead. Mrs. Hartwell is supported by the Illinois Gen. Albert D. Shaw, Commander of delegation, but her own state is divid ed, four of the more prominent Califor nia delegates having come out for Mrs. Carr. The fact that Colorado has nev er had a president of the Relief Corps, although the body was organized in that state, is urged in favor of Mrs. Carr. That Denver at present seems to have the lead in the race to entertain the G. A. R. encampment next year and that for one state to carry off two plums would be unfair, is being urged against the Denver woman. TO UNITE WAR VETERANS. Reunion of the Blue and the Grey Froposed. Chicago, Aug. 28. An encampment of the blue and the grey, a great organization which shall Include every man who fought for his principles, north or south, to be held in 1901, is the dream of a large num ber of the followers of the flag in '61, and the effort is to be made to secure the adoption of a resolution looking to that end when the veteransmeet to elect a commander in chief. A. B. Leeper, of Owaneco, 111., i3 father of the plan, and he is working night and day to secure votes for his measure. Mr. Leeper is a delegate at large to the pres ent encampment. He is past commander of Philip Baker Post No. 631, and adju tant general of the Grand Army of Ameri can Veterans. His proposition simply put Is. "Let us kiss and make up." When the annual Iillinois state encamp ment of the Grand Army was he at Jacksonville in May last, Mr. Leeper be gan his work of securing votes for the resolution which is to be presented here. The resolution follows: "Resolved, That our commander in chief apoint a committee with full power to act to .take the necessary preliminary eteps to accomplish the object of having a grand reunion of the Grand Army of the Republic and the United Confederate "Veterns, the Sons of Veterans and tho Sons of Confederate Veterans and all their friends at some point yet to be decided upon, and begin the twentieth century with a general handshake and renewal of fidelity to our flag and the principles which it represents, as an object lesson and grand illustration to the world of genuine Americanism and to demonstrate the fact that 'peace hath her victories no less renowned than war." " BRYAN STAYS AWAY. Follows McKinley's Lead Regarding the G. A. R. Encampment. Chicago, Aug. 28. William J. Bryan has followed the example of President McKiniey and declined to be a visitor at the national encampment of the G. A. R. He sent a message to Executive Di rector Wililam H. Harper, the head of the local committee in charge of the lo cal end of the encampment, saying that because of the absence of President Mc Kiniey from the encampment he consid ered it advisable to remain away. His telegram is as follows: "Lincoln, Neb., Aug. 27. To W. H. Harper, Executive Director of the Grand Army of the Republic, Chicago. "Since President McKiniey is detained by public business, I believe that the proprieties of the occasion demand that I also decline and thus relieve the re union of any appearance of partisan ship. (Signed) "W. J. BRYAN." The local committee through Mr. Har per expressed its regrets at the inability of Mr. Bryan to be present by sending him the following message: 'Tour telegram declining the invita tion to the Grand Army reunion because of President McKinley's absence by rea son of his public duties received. The executive committee appreciates your delicacy of sentiment under the circum ataacea while regretting that we cannot 0 I'A'&v fli Vkw4 MSmk v Jitt- have the pleasure and honor of enter taining you." WESTEKN CITY FAVORED For Next National Encampment of the G. A. B. The contest for the honor of enter taining' the next annual encampment of the G. A. R. promises to be a rather lively one. The preponderance of senti ment apepars to be in favor of a west ern city, and both Salt Lake and Den ver have delegations on the ground working hard to secure the encamp ment of 1901. In the contest this year some things beside geographical con ditions are apaprently faaving much weight with the veterans. The passing of the years has made it much more difficult to bear the fatigue of a march under the blazing sun than it was in the 60's, and many of the prominent mem bers of the organization are pronounced in favor of the selection of a site for the encampment where reasonably cool weather may be expected. This senti ment will undoubtedly have much to do with the selection and it is consid ered not unlikely taht the next annual encampment may be held west of the Mississippi river. Commander-in-chief Shaw is quoted as favoring "any place where the comrades may have cool weather." It is expected that the election of Major Leo Raisseur of St. Louis, as commander-in-chief will be unanimous, there being no other candidate. FAITII IN FIXGREE.

Government Has Not Sent War Ship to Tangier. New York, Aug. 28. A special to the Herald from Washington says: Just at this moment the Sultan of Mo rocco need not be alarmed at the appear ance of an American man of war in the harbor of Tangier. Officials of the state and navy depart ments say that the report published this morning that an American warship had put in at Tangier for the purpose of compelling Morocco to pay an indemnity for injuries sustained by an American citizen probably had its origin in a guilty conscience. An American naturalized citizen named Marcus Azaquie was murdered two months ago, by a mob in the town of Fez. The crime was immediately re ported to the state department by Mr. Gummere, consul general at Tangier and he was Instructed by cable to request the French consul at Fez to make an in vestigation. The report of the French consul has not yet been received, but Mf. Gummere has reported that during the investigation he made a demand up on the Moorish authorities for the ap prehension and punishment of those guilty of the murder. No report of the arrival of an Ameri can warship has reached the navy de partment and it is presumed that the vessel to which reference is made is the Massachusetts State Nautical school ship Enterprise. The itinerary of this vessel calls for her arrival at Tangier on August 24, and her departure on August 26. If her presence has stirred up the Moorish authorities to compliance with the demands of Mr. Gummere the state department will be well pleased with the visit of the Enterprise, notwithstanding ine ract mat it naa no nana in arrang ing the itinerary.

He says that Earnest and his son as saulted him, and he has a black eye and other bruises to verify his statements. Mr. Nicholson Exhonerated. C. C. Nicholson, the coal dealer at 1011 rsorth Kansas avene, who was arrested yesterday charged with violating the city ordinance relating to the owners of scales weighing wagons other than their own, was not guilty of the charge. Mr. Nichol son was asked by the city weighmaster to weigh ail wagons during the time the city scales were being moved, and he did so. He had not weighed in violation of the ordinance at any other time, but it was in following the request of the weigh master that lead to his arrest. Tax Col lector Bailey, who made the- charge, did hot understand the circumstances. TO TAKE OUT STAINS. From the New York Herald. J Mildew, iron rust and grease spots are persistent worries in summer time to the careful mother. Rub mildewed spots well with lemon juice and salt and expose to a hot sun. The most delicate fabric will be unharmed. The spots will disappear. For removing grease spots tage equal parts of strong ammonia, water, ether and alcohol. To prevent the ring forming about the cleaned spot, rub with a cloth slightly dampened with the same solution. In other words, rub out the ring. If the cloth is too wet it will only make another one. Ink spots should be attended to before they dry to save the garment. Sponge with milk until all the ink is removed, and then sponge with benzine to take out the grease lett by the milk. Ink spows can be removed from goods of which the color will not run by applying salts of lemon. When varnish gets on any garment th cleansing should be done as soon as pos sible. Wet the varnish thoroughly with alcohol two or three times and then sponge off with a clean cloth. If the color has been affected the material should be sponged with chloroform unless the color is blue. Then vinegar or acetic acid should be used instead of the chloro form. Both of these are hard on the hands and should be used with caution. Muddy spots on white dresses may be re moved by washing in a solution of car bonate of soda in water. Lay the soiled part on a cloth and sponge well. One often notices on new linen yellow stains left by the sewing machine. Such garments should not be put into the wash until the spots have been well rubbed with liquid ammonia. Repeated applications of fresh lard or butter will come as near as anything to removing tar, though a spot is almost always left. Fine linen is continually in danger of iron rust, and unless such spots are at tended to at once there is little hope of removing them. Soak the spot well, as if for general washing, pass a hot iron over a wet cloth, and when the latter steams well put it under the stained garments. Then, on the upper side of the goods, rub a little oxalic acid where the spots show. The action of the acid is hastened by the heat and the moisture. The rut disappears. Then the whole garment should be washed with soap. Paint on woolen clothing may some times be removed by rubbing the spot with the same cloth. It is supposed that the paint disappears in the fuzz produced by the rubbing. If this is not successful try turpentine. Blood stains are about as difficult as any to get out. Here starch comes into use. Make a thin paste and spread on the stain. Leave it to dry. Then brush off. Generally the stain will go with the starch. The worst stains, however, will require several applications of the starch. A poor ironer is one of the great trials of housekeeping. Scorched clothes are often discarded as hopeless, but if not too much burned may be made ail right by the patient use of onion juice. Mix it with an ounce of fuller's earth, a little shredded soap and a wineglassful of vinegar. Heat the mixture till the soap is dissolved. Then wait till it is cold before applying. Rub it well over the scorched place, leave to dry and then put the garment in the regular washing. It is sometimes difficult to remove large coffee stains. First pour boiling water through the stain, then dip the spot in strong ammonia water, rinse in cold water, and put out in the sun to bleach. For tea stains nothing is needed but plain water. Often the shrinking effect of rain drops seems to have ruined light silks, when all that is required is to Iron the silk on the wrong side with a piece of muslin between the goods and the iron. Boston Census Returns. Washington, Aug. 28. The census of Boston as just announced by the census bureau is 560,892 against 448,477 in 1890. This is an increase of 112,415, or 25.07 per cent.

ADMIRALS DISAGREE. CContinued from the First Page. great as to make the military com manders extremely cautious in admit ting any but the most tried and relia ble troops within the walls. It is prob able that the relaxation of the effort to force an entrance into the palace gave rise in the Chinese imagination to the belief that the allies had been repulsed and this was the basis of the report of the defeat of the allies. GERMANY STANDS OUT. Washington, Aug. 28. Several replies have been received to the instructions Bent our ambassadors and ministers last week asking them to sound the govern ments to which they are accredited on two propositions, first, the willingness of those governments to accept the suffi ciency of Earl Li Hung Chang's creden- CLINT W. GRAHAM, Of St. Marys, Kas., who was killed in the march, to Pekin. tials to treat with the powers for a set telment, and, second, to ascertain if possible what the future policy of each power is to be. Regarding the latter inquiry the replies thus far have de veloped nothing. With regard to the first inquiry, Eng land and Russia are agreed that Earl Li's credentials are sufficient. Germany, however, takes a firm stand against the sufficiency of his credentials and is the only power 39 yet which has re turned a flat footed dissension. The atti tude of the United States is that Li's credentials appear authentic. COMMUNICATION BY WAR SHIP. Washington, Aug. 28. The cabinet to day devoted most of its session to con sidering the difficulties that have been experienced in communicating with Gen. Chaffee and the other American com manders in China. . International evi dence was found in late dispatches re ceived from them that tended to dem onstrate that some person or persons had been purposely delaying the messages coming from Pekin and Tien Tsin to Washington. It also is suspected that our messages may have been injuriously tampered with. The cabinet came to the conclusion that if any Chinese persons have interfered wTith the dispatches the interference must have occurred on the wires between Che Foo and Shanghai and it was determined, to reopen direct communication by means of a war ves sel. Either the New Orleans or" the Princeton, now at Shanghai, will be sent at once to Che Foo, whre the military cable system begins free from Chinese interference. WINT'S CASUALTY LIST.

SAYS IT WAS A "FROST." Dave Mulvane Tells Chicago About Bryan's Topeka Visit. Dave Mulvane. who is in Chicago attend ing to business connected with his posi tion as national Republican committee man, made the following statement con cerning the Bryan notification meeting in Topeka: "The Bryan notification meeting at To peka Thursday was exaggerated both as to numbers and enthusiasm.- Instead of there being: 15,000 people present, there were not to exceed 1,500 strangers and as many Topeka people, 3000 being a liberal estimate of the attendance. The meeting was a "frost.' There was no enthusiasm, no shouting for Bryan, andhis- reception was chilly." Bresci Tries Suicided - . London, Aug. 28.

WM t BILL SHATED GEN. MILES. From the New York Sun. During the autumn of 189 Major Gen eral Miles and a party of Washington friends arranged for a bear hunt in the mountains of New Mexico. They arrived at Magdalena in a special Car and were met at the station by Captain Slocum with troop E of the Seventh United States cav alry, detailed to act as escort to the party. Proceeding at once to the Hoff man ranch, about 50 miles westward, they pitched camp and next day started in to hunt bears. Shortly after they left Magdalena a ranchman rode Into town with the start ling intelligence that he had met Bill Parks, an old resident, out on the moun tains. Bill told him that he had shot and killed a prominent citizen of Magda lena and was trying to elude a posse sent ir pursuit of him, also that the town ' . been visited by a lot of little men who overturned all the buildings. As the man reported killed was alive and the buildings were still on solid foundations, the conclusion reached was that Bill had gone "locoed." A party of friends was soon organized and on Bill's trail. On the second day's hunt his hiding place was discovered. He protested against return ing to Magdalena. fearing a lynching, as the man he imagined he had killed was very popular. However, after a. long par ley and with the assurance that he would be protected, he consented to return. The posse and Bill reached Magdalena four days prior to the return of the bear hunters. Bill was confined in a room for two days and having greatly improved, was then liberated. The day following his release Bill walked into the Eclipse saloon, and in a corner saw an old, un used barber chair. Remarking that he knew a thing or two about "barbering," he begged the proprietor to give him the chair and allow him to begin business as a barber. The saloonkeeper, wishing to humor him, and feeling satisfied that no one would risk his neck in Bill's care, gave his consent. Bill fixed up the old chair, sharpened a few rusty razors, secured a towel or two and was ready for the rush to begin. The rush came not, but Bill kept on waiting and was presently re warded. General Miles and his party returned from what had been a successful bear hunt, and took up their quarters in the special car. The general, being very much in need of a shave, inquired of a loiterer if there was a barber shop in town. The loiterer, who was a wag, pointed out Bill's place, whereupon the general remarked that he would go there In a few minutes. The news spread quickly over town that Bill was going to shave the' famous gen eral. Miles. Bill selected his razor, got out a clean towel and awaited the arrival. It was evident to onlookers that he was growing nervous. When the general ar rived at the saloon standing room was at a premium. With some difficulty he man aged to reach the chair, where Bill re ceived him with a courtly bow. When the operation began there was a full house. Those not close enough to see the performance were rewarded by hearing the scrape, scrape of the dull razor as it was drawn across the victim's face. Gen eral Miles took his medicine without a murmur and bravely closed his eyes. This encouraged Bill, who thought the razor was working so smoothly that his cus tomer had gone to sleep. He regained his nerve and at the end of ten minutes the ordeal was at an end. The general, look ing much relieved, handed Bill a quarter and departed. Bill's face beamed with pride while congratulations poured in from all sides. The next morning Bill put up this sign over his mirror: "General shaving, 25 cents." Bill's fame soon spread through out the surrounding country, and his chair is now besieged by customers who want to be shaved by the man who shaved General Miles. Broker Commits Suicide.

Account of holiday In Chicago and the news bureau likewise be ing closed there are no statistics or re liable information from which to formu late a reliable grain market letter today. All that can be said is that New York wheat is higher on strength of better ex port demand and Bradstreet's decrease in the visible of 1,000.000 bushels, while a large increase was anticipated. The strength in New York corn is reported to have been occassioned by Chicago shorts buying freely in the New York market ac count not being able to cover their lines. We believe that both wheat and corn are working into strong positions, and will sell higher before they show much if any break. Chicaeo Livestock Market. Chicago, Aug. 28.

The declines were not important, however, even where they reached the ex treme limit, and the fact that one quarter of the total transactions was contribute! by Sugar Refining furnished clear proof of the profesional character of the market. The movement in Sugar Refining can not be traced to any trade development, be cause there should be another month of good profits for the refiners. The street talk that the dividend on the stock will not be increased next month creates a smile among persons best acquainted with the affairs of the company. It would be very hard to prove that an increase in the dividend had been reasonably contem plated, but it is accepted in well Informed quarters that the rate will be the same as in the previous quarter, namely, 1H per cent. Nothing new in the general situa tion furnished ground for the business in , the stock market yesterday. 1 ne aggres siveness of he bear faction, although after all on a moderate scale, may have been due to the zest which comes with the "tasting of blood"; that is, the small suc cesses achieved in specialties by the bears in the last few days of business may have encouraged them to hunt for stop orders. Market Gossm. Liverpool: Wheat, d lower; corn, d higher. Omaha receipts: Hogs, 11,000, lower; cat tle, 3,500, steady. Liverpool: Spot wheat firm, unchanged: spot corn steady, unchanged. Chicago: The receipts of wheat today will be light as compared with same day for the last six weeks. There is a falling off of our stocks in store; will increase very slow, if any. The demand here is large and at the price we seem to be lower than other carrying centers, for the reason they come in here and buy. Ex porters are shippers from here in last few davs. Our markets should do better. St. Louis receipts: Wheat, 98,053 bu.; last vear. 65,893 bu. Corn. 55,200 bu.; last year, 129,860 bu.

' New York, Aug. 28. The reaction in the stock market which took place today was past due when it put in its- appearance, and although it did not assume any great proportion, was perfectly healthy under the circumstances and served in a meas ure to chill bearish ardor and created the impression that the movement was likely to go still further. This belief was strengthened by the fact that the oper ators who until very recently had ben most active in bearing prices were gen erally ranged on the bear side, their change of front no doubt being for the purpose of getting values to higher level preparatory to giving the market anothsr boost, which barring untoward happenings it is likelv to see in the not far distant future. However, the advancing tendency of prices was not wholly without resist ance, as at intervals during the day fair sized breaks occurred. London seemed in clined to take a more hopeful view of the situation in China, and the security mar kets at that center were very firm. In addition to this the foreigners renewed their purchases of American railway shares, here taking in all about 10.000 on balance. There is a large outstanding short interest in Burlington and St. Paul, and we will be surprised if St. Paul don't sell around 120 in the next few days.
