Plan to Kill Humbert Was Not
Formed In Paterson.
New York. Oct. 20. 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
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:
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.

lilLLEK NOW A HERO.
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
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.

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
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.

"Rush and roar,
Rush and roar.
Walk up, chalk up.
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
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
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 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
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
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
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
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
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.

New Tork, Oct, 20. It la stated In

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

and at a most critical period of negotia
tions with tha Vatican Count von Bue

was a departure from the usages of the
