Supereme Court Commissioner Trimble, of New Jersey, having completed his investigation, de clares it to be his conviction that no anarchist plot existed ia Paterson, or West Hotoken, for the assassination of the late King Humbert of Italy. He believe that Bresci planned the murder after going abroad. Under his official seal the commis sioner will submit to the New Jersey su preme court 222 pages of typewritten testimony taken from thirty witnesses, a copy of which will be forwarded to the Italian authorities by Governor Voor hees. While there is nothing to connect King Humbert's assassinati.m with the let ter in which Sperandio Caribone pre dicted, M. Trimble Uiinks that the assas sination was more than a. coincidence, and the intimation in the letter that it would take place by no means the act of an unbalanced mind, Krne&ta Cavelio, the so-called 'an archist queen," was among the last of the witnesses examined. She said that she knew Bresci well, and that he had told her business called him abroad. She denied that the assassination of King1 Humbert had ever been suggested by Bresci or any of the associates in her hearing. She declared that Paterson an archists were astonished by news of the assassination. Edward MeCabe, Paterson's manager of the Postal Telegraph company, again refused to surrender dispatches said to have, been received by anarchists from Italy. Commissioner Trimble said that th Italian government would be able to get them where they originated. KOT MUCH IX FATOK. Arbitration aa a Means of Settling: Chines Question. Naw York. Oct. 20. A special to the Herald from Washington says: Arbi tration of the entire Chinese, question haa not yet been given serious consider ation by officials and diplomats- here, Jout its advantages are so manifest that some of the powers would welcome a solution effected by this peaceful means. One important reason why lta adoption lias not been urged is that Germany would probably not consent to allow the arbitration of claims she will present growing out of the murder of Baron Von Ketteler. iter minister to China, taking the ground that her national honor Is involved, and this con not be a subject of arbitration. As officials think of the matter, they ran see another reason against arbitra tion, and that is that as all the great powers are involved In the Chinese troubles, it would be impossible to ob taia arbitrators free from prejudice. It is further pointed out that the peace negotiators who are to sit in Pekin can do as effective work In the way of bring ing about peace as would a board formed of the representatives of the powers at any other place. Notwithstanding the failure of the im perial court to return to Pekin, there is reason to believe that pressure is still being exerted upon the emperor and em press dowager to induce- them to go to their capital. It is understood that this government has gone so far a3 to ex press a willingness to reduce the strength of its legation guard if the im perial court will resume its aeat at Pekin. Minister Wu fcas cabled this fact to Li Hung Chang for presentation to the emperor and empress dowager. Fo long, however, as other nations main tain armies in the capital it ia unlikely that the court will return. rfOSTETTEn? Common ail ments, such as Constipation Indigestion. Dyspepsia.

Speech. In Natal In Sis Own Defense Well Received In London. New York, Oct. 20. General Buller's speech in Natal in defense of his plan of campaign a year ago is the chief topic among British military men. says the Tribune's London correspondent. His frankness appeals to the best in stincts of English character and will secure for him an enthusiastic reception when he returns. His judgment in making the relief of Ladysmitn the first objective point of the campaign and in preventing the oBer occupation of lower Natal is now vindicated by unbiased opinion of military men in London. He was a victim of British overconfidence, which had forecasted a grand prome nade from Cape Town to Pretoria. If he was unjustly censured for con ducting a campaign in a corner instead of carrying out his original plan, he was rightly held responsible for failure at Colenso and Ppion kop, although Colonel Long disobeyed orders in one battle and General WTarren was unmanageable in the other. He was enabled to partially retrieve his reputation by subsequent good work, but there will be no dissent from his own manly confession that he justly left the chief command. That General Buller was offered the chief command in succession to Lord Roberts and declined it is not officially confirmed. Buller's tribute to Sir Evelyn "Wood will be helpful in keeping him at the post of adjutant general, where his term will not expire for two years. Wood's deafness would have been a great ob stacle to success in the field. General Buller's reference to the tre mendous strain on the individual sol dier under fire day after day ought to moderate the zeal of the agitators, for sweeping and drastic military reforms. A system which develops heroism and patience in the individual soldier is not so black as it has been painted. E IE FULL OF ST0N ES. Queer Accident Caused by a Prema tura Explosion. New York, Oct. 20. Angelo Gonzalo was injured in a remarkable way by a premature explosion at Bedford Park a few days ago. When operated on at the Harlem hos pital Dr. Muller. the house surgeon, found in the orbit of the left eye, which was removed, sixteen small stones, one of which, was a quarter of an inch long. The left cheek bone was also removed, and several pieces of stone were re moved from the man's face and neck. One piece was half an inch long and half an inch wide. One piece narrowly missed cutting the jugular vein. Gon zaios' condition is serious. FEVER IN HAVANA. Ninety-Two Cases of Xellow Jack Known to Exist. New York. Oct. 20. There are ninety two cases of yellow fever in all at Ha vana, a dispatch to the Tribune states. Nineteen Americans are down with the disease. The death rate among the American victims has been 3 per cent. The fever is decreasing how. There is no disposition on the part of the author ities to misrepresent the situation. The coming of so many Spanish immigrants has been the cause of the increase over last year. Growing Confidence. New York, Oct. 20. The market ad vanced on large dealings on last Sat urday's good bank statement, and the further additions to reserves promised by the gold imports, decreased interior movement of currency and pension dis bursements by the sub-treasury. A large short interest was driven to cover, helping on the advance and outside buy ing was attracted by growing confidence in the business outlook. With the re duction of the short interest the taking of profits made inroads upon prices, and a bear party was organized on the basis of possible further disturbances in money rates by large future require ments. The operations of the bears were strongly contested by a weil equipped bull party. CoL Sample's Position. Denver, Oct. 20. CoL N. W. Sample who recently retired from the position of general superintendent of the Denver & Rio Grande road, has been selected as consulting engineer of the Rio Grande Western. The colonel will enter upon his duties without delay. RUSH ANHOAR. Annual Cane llusn at Wash burn is Exciting. Freshmen Win by Clerer Piece of Strategy. THAT WEAK OLD MAN. Disguise Adopted to Carry Canes to Chapel. Wild Scramble When They Were Taken Down. Rah, 'Rah. 'Rah. Nineteen four, "Rush and roar, Ninteen four." "Whoop 'em, Tear 'em. Rush and roar. Walk up, chalk up. Nineteen four." These are a sample of the yells which disturbed the echoes of the Washburn chapel when It was officially declared that the freshmen bad successfully car ried their canes Into the chapel, last ev ening. Early in the evening the crowd began to gather at the college. The stairway leading from the south side of the hall to the chapel was lined with girls, loyal sympathizers of either the "freshies" or the haughty sophomores. Occasionally the hall would echo with the class yells of some of the many groups on the stairs. The north flight of stairs was kept clear for the participants in the cane rush. Outside where the game was sure to be the roughest the boys of the upper classes were as anxiously awaiting the coming of the "freshies" as the sopho mores themselves -who were seated on the steps and walking here and there watching for any sign of the invaders. Shortly before 8:30 there was a rush and a swish and the "freshies" three abreast, closely packed made a dash for the steps to the entrance of the college. The ever watchful sophs began to form at the foot of the front steps at the fir3t intimation that the struggle was about to begin. The crowd held its breath. The "fresh ies" met the sophs. Just at the foot of the steps and all went down in a heap. As fast as the "freshies" got up they began to work themselves around to the south side of the steps as if to go to th rear entrance to the chapel to make the fight. While ail the attention was at tracted to the struggling mass to one side of the entrance, J. W. Clark, the nervy man from Downs, drove up to the front of the college campus and dis guised as an old man with a grey beard, stepped out and with the canes under his overcoat, walked to the chapel. The "freshies" waited until they wore sure that he had reached the chapel when they let the good news leak out. Immediately there was a rush for the stairs. The fight was on in the chapel in earnest when some of the upper class men realizing the unfairness of the fight now that the canes were in the chapel called to the boys to stop. Then for a few moments the "freshies" made the air ring with their shouts. There were 22 freshmen In the fight, and they carried 20 canes into the chapel. ORIGIN OP THE CANE RUSH. The cane rush has been a prominent feature in college sports since the insti tution of the American college way back in the last century, and the freshmen have been denied certain privileges en joyed by the upper class men. As early as the beginning of this cen tury he was forbidden by an unwritten law to carry a stick or smoke a pipe. However, the innovation of the cane rush has determined the question. Upon the sophomores devolves the du ty of making the demands upon the "freshies" to give up their haughty manners and to bring them into sub mission if possible. This demand ter minates in the cane rush every fail shortly after the opening of the school. In the fight to get to the chapel Ash baugh had his face severely scratched up and Ramsey turned his ankle. Ex cept for those two accidents nothing serious happened during the first part of the fight. Shortly after the chapel was reached a bluff of trying to carry the canes down was made. The "freshies" got to the first landing with the canes and in the tussle Ramsey and another freshman passed the lines and went outside the building. When the sophomores bunted for them they could not be found. The sophomores were of the opinion that this was according to a prearrang ed plan. It was anticipated that the main body of "freshies" would make a rush on the front stairs and while the battle raged highest the sticks would be dropped out a window and the watchers outside would carry them away. CARRYING THE CANES DOWN. Evidently the freshmen thought that it would not be a good plan to run so much risk of losing the canes altogether or else they felt in honor bound to give the sophomores a fighting chance at the canes. The struggle began shortly after half past ten when the "freshies" made a rush for the stairway. Their progress was cheeked for a moment on the top landing but the opposing force was not strong enough and the mass of strug gling humanity rather rolled than walk ed down the stairs. The students were in a pile, a con glomeration of bodies, arms, legs, feet and clothing. The men on the outside pulled other men out of the pile by the heeh or shoulders. Underneath all, Ramsey and Clark were wrapped in each other's arms with the canes be tween them. As fast as freshmen could free themselves from the hold of the sophs, they ran back to the pile o screamintr and struggling men and threw themselves on the top of the pile. Piles of two men, a freshman and a sophomore, were lying around cm the ground here and there, the sophomore holding on to the "freshie" for ail he was worth to prevent him from getting into the game again. The freshmen made several advances of a few feet by bodily carrying the mass of men. and finally after three quarters of an hour's struggle by one final effort the crowd bearing the canes triumphantly sped acrosa the campus on the north. On reaching the hedge fence on the north of the campus the canes were thrown over the hedge and a run made for the gate to throw the sophomores off the track. Later it was planned to come and get them. A sophomore saw the move and secured the canes and took them to his room. Later a crowd of "freshies" went to the room and cap tured them. During the progress of the fight Nor man Ramsey fainted. He soon recover ed and went into the battle again. Duke Wmans also fainted twice and recovered to go into the fray the third time. The fight was exciting from start to finish. Bicycle lanterns were brought into service to assist in recognizing the combatants, and all during the fight the sympathizers of the different classes were shouting words of encouragement to the participants. The numbers were more nearly even and the sides more evenly matched than they ever were before. The freshmen are proud today for they succeeded in carrying their canes to the chapel and bringing them out again without so much as losing a single cane. SNAP SHOTS AT HOME NEWS P. I.

Probable Outcome of Von Buelow's Appointment. New Tork, Oct, 20. It la stated In high church circles In Washington, says a dispatch to the World, that the ap pointment of Count von Buelow to be minister of foreign affairs of Oermany, promises to revive controversies between the Vatican and the German emperor. In 1897, at a time when the German emperor sought to assume the protector ate of Christianity in the Holy Land and at a most critical period of negotia tions with tha Vatican Count von Bue low was accredited as the imperial Ger man ambassador to Pope Leo XIII. This was a departure from the usages of the German emperors and the step was her alded as an evidence of complete recon ciliation between the Vatican and Ber lin. The count did not hold the position more than a month. Almost coincident with his reception at the Vatican the notice of his promotion to the ministry of the imperial foreign office was pub lished. Two stories explanatory of this are told. One is that Italy objected to a member of the triple alliance taking so open an interest in the sovereignty.splr itual or temporal, of the pope ua to ap point an ambassador to him. The other story la that Count von Buelow was In discreet in permitting his emperor to be lieve that the pope acquiesced in the German protectorate of the Holy Land. Pope Leo XIII, afterward addressed an encyclical to the French bishops. In which he attributed the rumors that Emperor William had been acknowledg ed as the protector of the Christiana in the east, to indiscreet and unfounded diplomatic gossip. The Cathode hierarchy throughout the world wili now watch with considerable Interest the development of Von Bue low's attitude toward Pope Leo. COLORADO FLYER. Via "Great Rock Island Route."
