Tuesday Fixed For Departure of the
Canadian Contingent
New York, Dec. 10. A dispatch to the
Tribune from London says:
The Canadian " contingent attended
service yesterday in two detachments,
one going to St. Paul's and the other
to Brompton Oratory. "God Save the
Queen" was sung in the cathedral with
impressive effect, the voices of the eol
liers ringing out high above the organ
and choir. Chelsea hospital was vis
ited during the afternoon, and there
were last words with. Canadian friends
Muring the evening. The regiment will
take a special train for Liverpool this
morning, and will have an official re
ception there, with glimpses of docks
and town shops. The Canadians will
eleep on their steamship and will sail
for home early on Tuesday. The recep
tion of the heroes of Paardeburg has not
Jieen marred by a single unpleasant epi
sode, and the appearance and bearing
of the officers and men have been great
ly admired. The good faeling existing
lietween them and the British regulars
is noticeaole. They have fought side by
Bide with the best regiments of the
(British army, and a spirit of good fel
lowship has been created which will be
a. new bond in the queen's dominions.
Military men resent the idea that
there has been ruthless destruction of
property by the British army in South
Africa. They assert that Lord Roberts'
and General Buller's orders were string
ent on this subject, and that discipline
tias been maintained by heavy penalties.
iPole-Carew was the first general to or
der the burning of a farm house, and
thi3 was done in consequence of Boer
treachery and a flagrant white flag out
rage. The precedent was sanctioned by
Lord Roberts, and the destruction of
farms has been restricted to instances
of similar treachery. Private property
fr.as been scrupulously respected when
ever there has been no justification for
punitive acts. An illustration is cited
of a penalty exacted from British offi
cers under General Buller's command.
They had entered a deserted farm house
In the Orange River colony, and not
finding wood with which to kindle a fire
for having their dinner cooked, had torn
down and split up a door, and had re
plenished the fire with the wooden stand
of a sewing machine. General Bundle,
when complaint was made by the owner
of the house, investigated the case, and
assessed the damages at 40, which the
officers were forced to pay.
TRANSCONTINENTAL RATES
Interstate Commerce CommissionWill
Give Shippers a Hearing.
New York, rec 10. Representatives
from commercial interests in various
sections of the country, principally from
the Pacific coast, western and eastern
states, will appear before the Interstate
Commerce Commission in Washington
today at a hearing to consider the mat
ter of transcontinental rates and the
concessions in such rates now being
sought by middle western Jobbers,chief
iy grocery and hardware firms. For
pome time past strong efforts have
been made by these interests and sev
eral conferences with the railroads have
-een held, to have the latter adopt a
System of graded rates. If these efforts
are successful Pacific coast rates, under
the plan proposed, would always be
higher from New York and San Fran
cisco than to San Francisco from any
point west of New York. Eastern job
bing interests .are naturally working
hard to prevent the establishment of,
such a system. They will be represent
ed at the hearing today, and J. M.
Langiey. of the Merchants association,
will appear in behalf of the New York
shipping interests represented by the
members of that organization.
The western people axe advocating
praded rates. That is. if a rate from
Is'ew York to San Fiancisco happens to
lie $1 per 100 pounds they contend that
the rate from Pittsburg on the same
froods should be approximately 90 cents,
from Chicago SO cents, from Mississippi
9'tver 75 cents, and from Missouri river
TO cents per 100 pounds, notwithstand
ing the fact that the rate from New
York is a forced rate and not a rate
that is the result of normal conditions
voluntarily established.

FOR YELLOWSTONE PARK.
Appropriation of $150,000 Wanted
For Improvements.
Chicago, Dec. 10. A special to the
Chronicle from Sioux City, la., says:
Capt. H. M. Chittenden, of the corps
of engineers. United States army, de
parted last night for 'Washington, to
appear before the congressional commit
tee on appropriations to urge the neces
sity of an allowance of $130,000 for the
continuation of the work of buildm
roads and bridges in Yellowstone Park.
Captain Chittenden is in charge of this
work, and during the last year has spent
much of his time there. He took pho
tographs, maps and drawings of im
provements to demonstrate his claim to
the committee.
This is the largest amount ever asked
of congress at one time for Yellowstone
Park.
FEARS HERESHOFF ALONE.
Sir Thomas Lipton Cares Not For
Other Fast Yacht Builders.
New York, Dec. 10. A dispatch to the
Journal and Advertiser from London
says:
Sir Thomas Lipton when informed of
Thomas Lawson s announcement that
he is determined to build a cup defender,
.said:
"Let them all come. I fear but one
mane that magician Hereshoff. If he
'vas out of the way I can assure you
the stars and stripes would not be wav
ing so high, and that cup would long
since have changed hands. Boston
raturally wants to get a chance in the
cap races. I certainly wouldn't object
it she did try to defend the cup. The
Ivew York Yacht club committee can
pick any boat they please. I have to
definitely select my boats months in
advance.
"They don't have to name the de
fender until a week before sailing, so
it's purely an American matter for the
New York club to decide. Personally I
fail to see why the club need build a
new boat. Certainly they never heard
me complain that the Columbia ran too
slow.
"But, seriously, Hereshoff is the one
man that I am after. He is, I repeat,
a magician in the designing and build
ing of yachts. I would be interested to
know something about the plans of Mr.
Lawson. While I believe Hereshoff can
turn out the best boats in America, still
there is a possibility that some freak
might be constructed which will beat
the Columbia.
"But Lawson's entering the game is
a healthy sign. It shows the great,
growing interest in yachting.
"Work will proceed rapidly now on
Shamrock II. Watson is giving all his
time to pushing the construction.
"'Whoever the other mysterious yacht
building in Glasgow may belong to, you
may positively say that she Is not mine,
nor is she a possible cup challenger, for
she will not be as fast as Shamrock II.
Nor is she the Prince of Wales' boat
My personal opinion is that she is be
ing built for the kaiser." '
SHRINERS TO HONOLULU.
Members of American Order Will Es
tablish a Temple in Hawaii.
Chicago, Dee. 10. A special to the
Chronicle from Grand Rapids. Mich., says:
Imperial Potentate Louis B. Winsor of
the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine, is to go
to Honolulu to institute a temple, and
Saladin Temple of Western Michigan
Oasis will furnish the escort for what
promises to be one of the most notable
pilgrimages on record. The Saladin Nob'es.

Rapids, February 2a, by a special train

Nobles will join them and they will em
bark on a specially chartered steamer for
Hawaii.
Two weeks will be spent in the islands.

New York, Dec. 10. Paddy Ryan, one
time champion of the prize ring, is des
titute. He has lost his speech and is

BIG MASS MEETING.
Topeka Ministers Discuss Next Sun
day's Rally.
The more than usual activity at Y. M.
C. A. headquarters Sunday gave evi
dence that something calling for spe
cial effort was on the board. The lecture
hall was packed. Secretary Lerrigo
made a few explanatory remarks touch
ing the purpose of the meeting and af
ter giving Mr. H. R. Hilton a chance
to announce the good citizens' mass
meeting of next Tuesday evening, ask
ed his audience to be particular to re
members that there were to be two mass
meetings and the date for that held by
the Y. M. C. A. was Sunday, Dec. 16.
Dr. Crannell of the First Baptist
church presented "The value of the
mass meeting to the churches." He
showed the advantage of the united ef
fort which this meeting involves and the
opportunity it gives to show the magni
tude of the church as a body, however
small isolated congregations may at
times appear.
Dr. Countermine followed with "The
Value of the Meeting to the Individual."
The doctor was more impressive than
usual. He spoke of the' awakening
which Engineer McClure's story would
undoubtedly bring to many a self-satisfied
or dormant Christian. He empha
sized the need of prayer for the suc
cessful issue of the meeting and said
that he had requested the women of
the congregation to pray for it although
they were denied any other participa
tion in or admittance to the meeting.
Several men who had heard Engineer
McClure give his wonderful story spoke
of the meetings which he had addressed,
the wonderful spell which he had seem
ed to cast over audiences.
Rev. F. W. Emerson closed the meet
ing with a strong address on "Personal
Work." He spoke of a man's soul as
"the greatest thing in the world," of the
value of God'? masterpiece and the
great joy of winning erring men. It was
a fitting close to a meeting of such
men, for such a purpose. Several thou
sand tickets were called for at theclose
of the meeting by men who wanted
them for distribution during the week
among the men who will wish to hear
Engineer McClure next Sunday. The
meeting in the auditorium is to be at
3 o'clock instead of 4 next Sunday. The
officers of the Y. M. C. A. are greatly
pleased with the success of their pre
liminary meeting, and together with
the ministers, who are all working as
one in this matter, are happy in the
prospect of not only an enormous suc
cess in attendance but also in results.
ENGLAND OPPOSED.
Leading Members of the Ministry Ob
ject to Canal Fortifications.
New York, Dec. 10. The London cor
respondent of the Tribune, writes:
Senator Lodge is credited with having
expressed the opinion that the British
government will accept the amendment
of the canal treaty and allow the Ignited
States to fortify the ends of the Nicar
agua waterway. The grounds on which
he bases that opinion are not explained.
The foreign office has not committed it
self on the subject. and cannot be expect
ed to do so until the question is brought
forward in a diplomatic way. All the
inferences of the case are against the
additional concession which Senator
Londge considers necessary.
Lord Salisbury, Mr. Arthur Balfour.
Mr. Chamberlain and other members of
the ministry are known in diplomatic
circles to have expressed themselves
without equivocation. They have said
that England would not consent to the
fortification of the entrances to the ca
nal. Only one English journal has in
timated that it would be a matter of in
difference to England whether the en
trances were fortified or not. This is Ihe
Spectator, a journal exceptionally favor
able to America on all international
questions. Senator Lodge has regarded
apparently the Spectator as an organ of
diplomatic opinion. whereas it repre
sents English optimism and idealism,
and is not in close touch with the for
eign office. It is safe to infer that Sec
retary Hay, while he was in London dis
cussed the Oayton-Bulwer treaty and
th TrTTicinlps of canal dinlomacv with
Lord Salisbury And Mr. Balfour, and I
knows how far they are prepared to go I

PRIEST SUES BISHOP.
Charges That He Was Kept
From Earning a Livelihood.
St. Louis, Dec. 10. Rev. B. Fresen
borg, a priest of the Roman Catholic
church,. without a parish, has begun
suit against Rt. Rev. J. Janssen, bishop
of the diocese of Belleville, 111., for $35,-
000. His complaint is that Bishop Jans
sen has failed and refused to permit him
to follow his profession as a priest
thereby preventing hirn from earning
a livelihood. It is said to be the only
case of the kind ever brought to the at
tention of a court of law or equity.
A writ notifying Bishop Janssen that
the action would be brought against him
was taken out at Belleville today by at
torneys for Father Fresenborg. In ac
cordance with the Illinois law the peti
tions setting forth the cause of action
will be filed later. Lebbeus P. Crigler
of St. Louis is of counsel for Father
Fresenborg, and has possession of the
documentary evidence on which the suit
is based.
STATES CASE OF HIS CLIENT.
"We claim." said Mr. Crigler today,
"that Bishop Janssen, by depriving our
client of his right to earn a living in
the diocese of Belleville, has prevented
him from earning $10,000. and that be
cause of the action of the bishop our
client was forced to undergo hardships
that resulted in the partial loss to him
of the use of his legs, thereby inflicting
injuries for which he is entitled to judg
ment for $25,000.
"Father Fresenborg Is 52 years old.
He came to this country in 1S74 from
Germany, where he was educated for
the priesthood. He was for several
years in the Alton, diocese, but in 1890
went to New York, where he had charge
of a parish for several years. In 1S96
he was notified by Mgr. Satolli that he
belonged in the Belleville diocese, and
he straightway reported to Bishop Jans
sen, asking that he be given work by
which he could support himself.
"Bishop Janssen failed to give him a
place, and he was forced to wander over
the country, celebrating mass and per
forming the functions of a priest in
parishes where there were no regular
clergymen.
"He finally went to Fargo, N. D., where
he had charge of a small cnmmur.ity of
churchmen. In -performing the duties of
tils otnee ne was exposed to tne rury or
a blizzard and so badly frozen that he
was forced to go to a hospital in Chicago.
There and at another hospital in New
York he was operated on nine times in
order to save his legs. The result was
that he is lamed for life and has difficulty
in going through the services in the man
ner prescribed for priests.
SAYS PENSION WAS OFFERED.
"During 1SS6 and 1897 he wrote frequent
ly to Bishop Janssen, insisting that he be
provided with work as a priest of the
Belleville diocese, but Bishop Janssen fail
ed to give him employment.
"In 1S9S Bishop Janssen appointed him
to the pastorate of the church at Equals
itv. III., where he served for over a year.
Then he was suddenly ordered to Harri
sonville. 111., a parish that pays only
about one-third as much as Equality. He
protested against this, and after several
conferences with Bishop Janssen they
agreed that he should be retired, sent back
to Germany and given a pension. Bishop
Janssen offered him $300 a year, but he
insisted on having $!00. which is the sum
usually allowed retired priests. After sev
eral conferences and a consultation with
me. Father Fresenborg agreed to accept
the $30! proposition. Bishop Janssen had
made it in writing I have his letter in
my desk but he drew b:i.ck and refused to
carry out his promise. On this we decided
to bring sutt, and the preliminary steps
were taken today."
Father Fresenbore1 is said by Mr. Crigler
to be staying at a St. Louis hotel, butthe
lawyer declined to name the house.
Alaska's Only Train Boy.
From the Chicago Tribune.
The old query as to whether or not
you would like to be the iceman will be
rapidly forgotten as soon as song
writers and balladists learn about the
train boy in Alaska. There is a train
boy in Alaska. Just one. Or rather
there was a few weeks ago, but by this
time he may be somewhere in the Med-

The Greatest Bargains Ever Offered in Topeka
"We have to make room for our Holiday Goods, -which will come
in the last of this week. We will sell for this week only
.
iterranean on his private yacht blowing
rings from his fifty-cent cigars, and
swearing at his $5,000-a-year sailing
master because he cannot whistle up a
breeze.
Think of being the only train boy on
a railroad that brings miners with thou
sands and thousands of dollars' worth of
gold out of the greatest mining camp
in the world. There is only one rail
road to Alaska that is the White Pass
and Yukon railroad. On that railroad
there is a train called the Klondike lim
ited. The Klondike limited! Isn't the sound
of that name enough to make a com
mon candy butcher on the run between
Peoria and Lafayette, Ind., stick his
head into his basket of salted peanuts
and strangle himself to death? For
there is a trainboy on the Klondike lim
ited. On the Klondike limited, that
brings prospectors and miners and ad
venturers weighted down with golden
nuggets back to the states and civiliza
tion, and the girls they left behind
them, there is a candy butcher. And
all of these prospectors and miners and
adventurers on this Klondike limit ed are
bubbling over with Joy that the days
of their exile are over, and that soon
they will be back to their boyhood
homes again. Think of turning loose a
candy butcher in such a crowd as that.
To quote another poular song, "It
seemed like a shame to take the money."
The trainboy on the Klondike limited,
like his bothers on the Kenosha local,
deals in peanuts, candy, books, papers,
and magazines. But more than that,
he sells shirts and collars and bright
red neckties. He also has a full line of
whiskeys and plug tobacco and cigars
of the finest cabbage selected leaf. The
trainboy does not like to sell cigars.
He only gets 50 cents apiece for them.
and they cost him 75 cents a hundred.
He sells the cigars to show he s a good
fellow. He didn't originally deal in
shirts and haberdashery, but he found
that the miners returning to civiliza
tion yearn madly for a "biled" shirt. So
after he had sold the shirt off his back.
together with his collar and red necktie
for $100 he decided to carry a stock of
shirts and ties.
There are stringent restrictions in
Alaska in regard to selling whisky, and
so the trainboy doesn't sell it. He gives
it away, and lets the man who drinks
it tip him for his trouble in pulling the
cork. If the man were to give him a
nugget any smaller than the size of the
cork the trainboy would haughtily re
fuse to let him buy any more cigars,
and would charge him at least $5 for a
two months old newspaper, which he
ordinarily gives away for only $1.50.
Then the trainboy sells playing cards,
and the passengers are always wanting
a game. He puts up the table, too,
hands around the matches, and, of
course, a large and substantial "kitty"
is maintained on one side of the table
for the sole support of the obliging
trainboy. If anybody was to put a
quarter or a silver half dollar into the
"kitty" the trainboy wouldn't be angry.
He' uses those things to pay storekeep
ers for fresh goods for his next run.
A Seattle newspaper man interviewed
the trainboy on the last trip from
Alaska. Quoth the trainboy: "Am I it?
Am I? Say, .ain't I a naughty boy? I
knew it's wrong to take the money, but
I need it in my business, and, besides,
as soon as I get enough I'll buy the rail
road and give some other good deserv
ing boy a chance to fasten on to a little
honest money. But $1 for a sack of
peanuts. Sav, that's a penitentiary
offense in Illinois. But I need the
money."
THE PAY OF MINISTERS.
From Harper's Weekly.!
At a meeting of Universalist ministers
in Boston last week one of the brethren
opened his heart on the subject of min
isters' salaries. He felt deeply that they
were too low, and thought ministers
were paid only about half as much as
lawyers and doctors of equal ability.
He thought, for one thing, that a min
ister should be paid for officiating at
funerals, where the family is in a posi
tion to give fees find are not attendants
at his church. That point, at least,
seems to be well taken. No reason sug
gests itseif why. under such circum
stances as stated, a funeral fee should
not be willingly paid and accepted with
resignation. The question of funeral
fees often comes up, because cases in
which they seem due are not uncommon,
but they fire rarely paid and are omitted
in most instances because the bereaved
family does not feel at liberty to offer
one.

TO SETTLE A STRIKE.
Chicago "Woodworkers Expect to Re
turn to Work Soon.
Chicago. Dec. 10. A settlement of the
woodworkers' strike, that eulminiated ii
the murder of Foreman Harry Farress.
is said to be assured as the outcome of
conciliatory measures submitted by a
member of one of the firms whose men
are out. These plans were favorably
considered by the meeting of the build
ing material trades council last night.
It was left to the board of business
agents of the council to arrange and rat
ify the terms of the peace pact at a
meeting to be held with the firms repre
sentatives today.
If the settlement expected is made it
is aeciareo that the sequel will be a sim
ilar adjustment with all the other firms
that held out after 33 of the 42 mills or
iginally included in the strike had sign
ed the union agreements w-hen the strike
was in force only a few weeks.
For nearly 15 weeks the strike of the
union woodworkers has been in force
against these firms. It has been an ex
citing struggle, marked on a few occa
sions by scenes of violence and blood
shed. More than 1,400 members of the wood
workers' union were involved originally
in the strike when it was called Septem
ber 1. A leading issue In the trouble was
the eight hour day, which had obtained
in the union mills for one year.but which
the mill owenrs wanted to abrogate for
the former work day of about nine
hours.
THE HAZING OF B00Z.
Father of Dead Cadet Will Present
Statement to Congress.
New York, Dec. 10. William H. Booz,
father of Oscar L. Booz, "whose death
is attributed to hazing by fellow cadets
at the West Point military academy,
is preparing a statement which is to be
presented to congress and the war de
partment, says a Bristol, Pa., dispatch
to the World. The statement will be
turned over to Congressman Wanger,
and he will be asked to bring about a
thorough investigation of the charge
that young Booz was cruely treated.
In the document will be the details of
the hazing told by the dead cadet, ex
tracts of letters received from him by
his family, and also names uttered by
him in his delirium.
KIPLING ON TEMPERANCE.
English Author Finds a Lesson in the
Experience of the Soldiers.
London, Dec. 10. Rudyard Kipling has
come out as a strong advocate of temper
ance. Writing on the subject he iava
"So far as I could see in South Africa.
it did not matter what sort of spirits a
man fancied, because there was not the
least danger of his getting more than was
good for him. On the other hand, men
who could do without liquor, who did not
fancy they neetled to flood their inside
every two or three hours, got on bettor
than the men who, through mere physical
incontinence and carelessness, were con
stantly sucking their water bottles.
"In this, as in all things, the man who
is temperate, in the full sense of the word,
survives."
A novel saloon trust scheme Is being
started here by temperance reformer,
headed by Earl Grev. Under it everv new
license granted by the authorities will be
acquired. The profits from the saloons
beyond 4 per cent will be applied to ob
jects of public utility.
The London County Council had to pur
chase sixty saloon licenses in buying prop
erty to cut a new thoroughfare from Hol
born to the Strand, and the saloon trust
proposes to acquire these to begin with.
Lord Roberts' testimony to the value of
temperance has caused the foundation of
the "Bobs league." a new temperance or
ganization which Isto be inaugurated by
entertaining "Bobs" on his return at a
public banquet without an intoxicating
drink.
