Tnree Brothers Sever Their Connec
tion With the Tobacco Trust.
Iouisvllle. Ky., Nov. 2S. Changes in
Ixuisville of great interest in. connection
with the American and Continental To
bacco companies will go into effect De
John Xoerhoefer, one of the most -widely
known tobacco men in the country and
one of the moving- spirits in the so-called
tobacco trust, has resigned as a member
of the board of directors of the Ameri
can company and also as general manager
of the company's laouisville establish
ment. Bazil Doerhoefer has resigned as direc
tor of the Continental company and as
general manager of the re-handling plant
in this city. Marcus Doerhoefer. brother
of John and Bazil Doerhoefer, has
tendered his resignation as general man
ager of the plug factory here. It is said
in Louisville that the three reclamations
mean that the Doerhoefer brothers, who
have been such a power in the affairs of
the trust siitce organization, have severed
iheir conne ition with the combine for
good and hereafter may be allied against
it in the independent field.
John Doerhoefer refuses to say whether
rie and his brothers have sold their to
bacco stock, or whether they will engage
in business independently of the big com
panies. The resignations of the Doerhoefers will
come before the regular weekly meeting
of the general boards of the two tobacco
companies in New York this week-
EAGAN WANTS ABSOLUTION
Will Ask For Pardon and Restoration
Kew Tork. Nov. 28. A Tribune special
from Washington says:
Charles P. Eagan, commissary general
of subsistence of the army, has come to
Washington, it is understood to appeal
to the president for a pardon and. for
restoration to duty. He was suspended
from his rank and office for a term of
six years on February 7, 1899, for his
language before the court of inquiry on
army beef. He has called at the White
House, but he failed to see the presi
dent, who it is generally rumored offered
fsome time ago to remit the sentence of
the courtmartial, provided General
Eagan will apply for retirement. This
Oeneral Eagan has refused to do, it is
said, contending that he is entitled to
return to duty and vindicate himself be

Little Acts Practiced by Wives.
The way a Cincinnati -woman cured
her husband of the coffee habit by a
little byplay i3 worthy of imitation in
bad cases. He tells the tale himself:
"For years I bad been using coffee and
finally I got like a. morphine or opium
fiend. I knew perfectly well that coffee
robbed me of sieep, and I would lie
awake hour after hour in the night,
throwing away my life practically, for
I needed the sleep to carry on my work.
"Common sense and my knowledge
of the medieinaJ effects of caffeine (the
active principle of coffee) told me plain
ly enough that I was ruining my life
with every cupful, but to give coffee up
was another question. I simply could
"About three months ago my wife
brought home a sample of Postum Food
Coffee, but I would not hear of it. She
aid I was stubborn and hard headed.
No doubt I was, but I wasn't myself.
"She apparently gave up the effort to
Induce me to change, and I went on (as
I supposed) with my coffee right along,
five cups a day. About a month after
that I noticed I was sleeping very much
better at night, my nerves were fully
fifty per cent stronger. I drank just as
much coffee as ever, and was delighted
to think that it was not the coffee that
was hurting me.
"Speaking to my wife about the
change in my health, I told her that
there must be something in my habits
that had changed my health, for I was
Bo much better, and I was glad to know
that I could get better and still use cof
fee. She laughed heartily and said she
might as well let the cat out of the
bag. She said. 'I have been giving you
Postum Food Coffee for a whole month
and you have never known it.'
"The proof was so plain and the Pos
tum Coffee so good that I was simply
delighted with the whole affair, and of
course freely forgave my wife for the
justifiable deception. I am getting well
as fast as a. man could and am telling
my friends about it. However, many of
them, like myself, will not hear to any
change, but stick to their coffee, and
complain of headaches, indigestion, etc
A few of them have been induced to
make the change from coffee to Postum
Food Coffee, and I have never known a
case where it has not worked a great
advantage." J. B. Huttenmilier, 118

All the Money in the Safe Car
By Masked Men Who Escape on
a Hand Car.
Emden, 111., Nov. 28. Four masked
men wrecked the Farmers bank of Em
den early today. It is stated that they
secursx all the funds of the bank, be
tween $3,000 and $4,000.
When the robbers discharged their
first blasts of dynamite in an effort to
open the vault the explosion aroused a
citizen, John Alberts, four blocks away.
Alberts hurried to the bank. One of
the robbers was on guard in the street.
He seized Alberts who was bound hand
and foot and dragged into the bank,
where he witnessed the gang drilling in
to the vault door, making ready a sec
ond blast. When the fuse was lighted
the robbers stepped outside and Alberts
lay in the corner when it went off. He
was not seriously injured, however. The
second blast unhinged the vault doors,
and the robbers made off with all the
cash. Securing a handcar they pulled
in the direction of Delavan. There they
were met by Night Patrolman Sanford
won attempted to arrest them.
One of the robbers fired and Sanford
fell, mortally wounded through the body.
Outside the town the men boarded a
passenger train on the Chicago & Alton.
All traces of them were lost. The en
gineer of the passenger train claims
that he saw a man jump from the first
car near Minier while the train was mov
ing at a high speed, but a search of the
locality failed to show any traces of the

Nation Finds Itself Involved in Diffi
culty Over Chinese Affairs.
Correspondence of Associated Press.
Yokohama, Noy.10. A speech made by
Mr. Kato, the newly appointed minister
of foreign affairs, indicates that Japan
finds herself involved in the same diffi
culty in the diplomatic manoeuvres now
progressing in China that she underwent
in her military operations. Just as the
supposed necessity for concerted action
caused the disastrous delay then, so this
country finds itself hampered by having
to wait upon the action of the allied
powers with all the impossibility of their
coming to an agreement.
The enormous commercial trade which
it has at stake in north China, as well
as the patriotic sentiment which will be
aroused upon the least encroachment
upon its rights in Korea will make it
incumbent upon the western powers to
be very cautious about slighting the
counsels of the nation holding the bal
ance of power in the Orient.
Japan's great holiday, the 3d of No
vember the natal day of the emperor
was of unusual interest this year,, as in
dicative of the pleasant relations now
established between the government and
the foreign community, fully justifying
the wisdom of treaty revision and mark
ing the disappearance of the fears at
first engendered by it. The annual ball
given at the Imperial hotel was attend
ed by a larger number than was ever
known to be the case ori a similar occa
sion .and the cordial good feeling of the
foreigners who were present in unusual
force was specially notable. The review
of the troops in the morning was a most
brilliant and impressive spectacle more
than 10.000 of the various branches of
the service, including some who had just
returned from the seat of war in China
taking part in it. The concourse of spec
tators was unprecedented, and it may be
looked upon as one of the indications of
the growing martial ardor which recent
events have evoked.
The return of Minister Konura from
St. Petersburg en route to his new post
in China and that of Minister Kurino
from Paris, together with the appoint
ment of Baron Kaneko to the post of
minister of justice, are to furnish occa
sion for a notable banquet of the Har
vard club, of which all three of these
distinguished men are members. It will be
held in the latter part of this month.
The club is the only western university
Organization on this side of the globe,
and it has already had a most success
ful career. Its membership is almost ex
actly divided between Americans and
Japanese. There is talk of organizing
an Anglo-American university club on
an extensive scale, the constituency for
it being very large.
Comment is rife and much sympathy
expressed concerning the almost impos
sible task imposed upon Count von Wal
dersee in China, while he is practically
left without command or sufficient au
thority to enforce it. Russia, France,
Japan and America practically ignored
his credentials and numerous rumors
are rife that he has asked for his recall.

A CONVICT WAS USED.
An Expert Taken From Ohio Peniten
tiary to Open a Safe.
Chicago, Nov. 28 A special to the Tri
bune from Columbus, O., says:
In order to immediately secure valu
able papers belonging to her dead hus
band, the late Col. F. J. Pickard, a civil
engineer, who died a few days ago, an
expert safe blower, now a convict in
the state penitentiary here, was loaned
to Mrs. Pickard by the warden long
enough for him to open the strong box in
which the important papers were kept.
The entire affair was kept secret and the
prisoner was conveyed through the city
in a closed carriage to the safe which he
blew open and was returned to his cell
before daylight this morning.
All private papers were locked up in
Col. Pickard's safe, the dead man alone
having known the combination. The
town was searched in vain for an expert
to open the safe, and the novel plan oj?
securing the services of a burglar was
adopted. It took the convict 12 minutes
to open the safe.
BARRIER OF ICE
Now Shuts Cape Nome From the
Seattle, Wash., Nov. 28. The United
States revenue cutter McCulloch has
arrived from Alaska with news that
Nome is now completely isolated from
the outer world by a barrier of ice. For
seven long months this conditio! of
affairs will continue. The camp is well
supplied with provisions and fuel. It is
possible that before the first steamers
arrive at Nome in the spring there may
be a slight shortage of coal, but it is
not anticipated that it will be serious.
November 8 the ice had crept out
from Nome into the sea for a distance of
200 feet. Several mornings previous
lighters had been frozen in. The warn
ing was heeded by the steamers Centen
nial, Santa Ana. Sadie and Portland.

"WANT A CHANGE.
Canal Preferred to a Boat Railway at
Portland, Ore., Nov. 28. B. H. Libbey
and John Adams of Lewiston, Idaho, met
with the Chamber of Commerce of Port
land to consider the matter of opening the
Columbia river to free navigation. The
particular project to engage attention was
a canal at the Dalles of the river. It was
resolved to ask congress to change the
plan of improvement from a boat railway,
for which an appropriation of $250.0uO has
already been made, to a canal and locks
to cost about $4,000,000. Inasmuch as the
Idaho men have started the movement at
this time it was agreed that the Idaho
delegation should present the subject be
fore congress and that the members of
Oregon and Washington would be urged
to support the measure The United States
engineers asked Mr. Libbey for data as
to the resources of the country for use
in their request to the war department on
the canal project and in summing up his
conclusions he said:
"Five years ago the Lewiston country
produced only two hundred thousand
bushels of wheat: this year the produc
tion was 3.700,000 bushels. Five thousand
cars are now required to market the
grain. In the inland empire 40.000.000
bushels of wheat, barlev, oats and flax
are produced, requiring 60.000 freight cars
to transport it to the market. The Lew
iston country sent forward this year 490
carloads of fruit and the inland empire
shipped 3,600 car loads. Seventeen hundred
car loads of wool and 4,000 car loads of
live stock also were sent to market from
that interior basin. The products of the
inland empire tnis year required no less
than 80.000 freight cars to transport them
It was the sense of the meeting that
congress should authorize the canal at the
Dalles to be built on the continuous con
THOUGHTFUL FOR FRANCE.
Why Salisbury Didn't Announce An
nexation of the Transvaal.
New York, Nov. 28. Two mysteries in
foreign politics remain unsolved, says
the Tribune's London correspondent.
The first is the difficulty in enforcing
death sentences against Chinese princes.
The second is Lord Salisbury's neglect
to give notice to the powers of the an
nexation of the Transvaal. The most
reasonable explanation offered in diplo
matic circles is the unwillingness of the
British foreign office to precipitate the
downfall of the French ministry. The
exchange of courtesies between French
officials and Mr. Kruger would have
been impracticable if this notice had
been formally served and neither the
president nor the premier nor the min
istry would have been spared if Mr.
Kruger had not been received with
proper state and ceremony Lord Salis

itals and sometimes makes it easy for
a government with which he is in sym
pathy to escape disaster.

English Church Affairs.
New York, Nov. 28. The proceedings
of the round table conference summoned
by the Bishop of London for the discus
sion of burning questions agitating1 the
English church, have been published in
authentic form, says the Tribune's Lon
don correspondent. The nearest ap
proach to a compromise was the offer of
Lord Halifax and Canon Gore to ac
cept the first prayer book of Edward VI
as an alternative in the communion
service and to dissolve the English
church union, a high church body which
has excited the hostility of low church
men. The impression is strengthened
that the only effective peace conference
will be an enlarged convocation with all
ancient rights fully restored.
Eodgers For Asiatic Service.
New York, Nov. 28. It is considered
likely in naval circles, says a Herald spe
cial from Washington, that Rear Ad
miral Frederick Rodgers, president of
the inspection board, will be assigned
to duty on the Asiatic station. It can
not be ascertained that he is to succeed
either Rear Admiral Remey or Rear
Admiral Kempff. though there are ru
mors that he will relieve the latter. It
is intimated that with the large force
of American warships in Asiatic waters
there should be a commander-in-chief
and two subordinate flag officers.

New York, Nov. 28. It is probable,

that the oitieers of the United States
gunboat Bancroft, which is now at
Colon, will come to Panama to survey

canal entrance on the Pacific coast from
Colon. The Bancroft will go from Colon
