"Resolved, That the crossing of the Belgian hare with the Kansas jack rabbit will handicap the sport, and com pel us to cross our greyhounds with the snail, that the speed may be correspond ingly reduced. "Resolved, That the greyhound in dustry of Kansas, representing some of her best people, and no small amount of capital, be protected from the 'already passed fad' of Belgian hares. "Resolved, That the Belgian hare fanciers be cited to the polecat as a fit subject. "Resolved, That we bind ourselves to gether in a secret order, and ask other coursing clubs to join us, for the protec tion of our sport, and that each member hold in his possession the left front foot of a graveyard jackrabbit as our emblem. Our password is 'DA not Smith.' "Resolved, That a petition be drawn up and circulated among the clubs, ask ing our governor, W. E.Stanley, to sign the death warrant of any persons, male or female, that are proven guilty of ad vocating or undertaking to reduce the speed of the Kansas jackrabbit." DISTRESS IN PORTO RICO. General Davis Thinks Reports Are Greatly Exaggerated. Washington. Dec 24. General Davis, when seen at the war -department concern ing the report made public today by Dr. Williams, a contract surgeon In the de partment of Porto Rico, netting forth an appalling state of affairs among the cof fee planters of the island, said that from his knowledge of affairs he should char acterize Dr. Williams statement as much overdrawn and exaggerated. That there was suffering in the coffee planting sec tion of the country, the general said he had no doubt. The heavy losses incurred bv the big hurricane, he said, could have had no result other than to greatly re duce the means of the planters, who had $12,000,000 worth of coffee swept away by the big storm. When General Davis was military governor of the island, the war department issued rations to the people of Porto Rico in order to help them weather over the evil effects of the hurrieane. When the government passed under civil administration, however, the issuance of the rations was discontinued, as it was believed the islanders had sufficiently re covered. The general said that Dr. Williams was an acting assistant surgeon in the depart ment and accompanied a small expedition under the command of Major Watt, Fifth cavalry, which, on a march across the island, traversed the coffee planting re gion. The doctor reported a bad state of affairs in this section in the way of sickness and want-of food and was asked for a fuller report by General Davis. This was turned over to Governor Allen. General Davis leaves Washington this afternoon for San- Francisco, where he will take passage for Manila on the trans port Hancock, sailing January 1. He has been ordered to duty as inspector genera of the division of the Philippines. Shock Was Too Much Eor Her. Hallidaysburg, Pa., Dec. 24.

Expects, to Supply 400 Children on Wednesday. HAVE 12 ASSISTANTS. Churches to Help in Distribut ing the Presents. All Deserving Ones Will Supplied With Gilts. Be Through the efforts of Mrs. Thorpe and many charitably disposed people the poor children of the city will be given a Christmas that they will re member for many days. Last Christmas Mrs. Thorpe distrib uted many presents among the poor children of the city and the same plan which was adopted last year was again put in effect this year. The different Sunday schools and many people who do not belong to. the schools. have sent gifts of different, kinds to Mrs. Thorpe for distribution among the children. The old people tat ve not been forgotten for they will also receive gifts at the police matron's rooms. The poor children will call at Mrs. Thorpe's rooms Wednesday morning to receive their gifts. This will make their Christmas a day late, but it will be just as jolly as if it came the day before. The children will go up the back stairs and in the first room will be the cloth ing; they will then go into the old build ing and in the first room will be the toys: In the next the books and in the fourth; the candy and nuts. They win then pass out of the front door. Mrs. Thorpe expects about 400 children and to wait upon, them all and keep them in order it will require 12 assistants. This has been arranged for. The X. W. C. A. will send five assistants, the First M. E. church will send three, the First Congregational two, and the Central Congregational two. Miss Nellie Thorpe will also help in the work. The Salvation Army has made ar rangements to feed all the poor who will call for dinner Christmas so nothing in substantial eatables will be given at the police station. It will just be Christmas presents of toys, books, candy, nuts and clothing. On Thursday the rooms will be open for- the old poor people who would be unable to stand the push and jam of the children. The heavy woolen clothing has been put -aside for them, and some canned goods and other substantial presents will be given them. In speaking of the matter this morn ing Mrs. Thorpe said that all the Sun day schools in the city had, helped in gathering gifts and that eight Sunday schools in the country toad sent in gifts. "I think I have a plenty for all the children or I will have before the day is over for gifts are coming in all the time. I was forced to delay the chil dren's Christmas until Wednesday be cause some of the gifts will not be re ceived until the evening of the 25th. Among the gifts that have been received are stockings filled with candy from the United Presbyterian church. This gift is especially acceptable as so many of the children are in need of stockings, and of course they will not object to the stock ings being filled with candy. A number of the Sunday schools made their collec tions yesterday and they are bringing them in today." In answer to the question, "Are not a majority of the poor children colored?" Mrs. Thorpe said that they were not. "On the contrary, the white children are in the majority and it is a large major ity, too." The First Congregational Sunday school furnished gifts for the 85 chil dren in the sewing school which was held in the Armory last Saturday, and the Woman's club furnished gifts for the sewing school which is held in the Veal block. Both of these organizations fur nished the gifts for the sewing school for colored girls which Mrs. Thorpe con ducts in her rooms at the police station. The children are getting very anxious about their presents, and a number of them have been runningto Mrs. Thorpe's rooms today asking -if their Christmas is ready. They walk down the stairs very slowly when they are told that Santa Claus will not visit the rooms un til Wednesday, for two whole days is a long time to wait for a poor child who has never seen Santa but is sure to get a sight of him this Christmas. PAPERS IN A FIGHT. . Mail and Capital Want to Be Of ficial State Paper. A contest more Important to the par ticipants, the Mail and Breeze and the Topeka Capital, than the senatorial election of even the session of the legis lature, has been again inaugurated for the title of official state paper. The indications now are that the honor will remain with the Mail and Breeze. When this paper was selected there was a prolonged contest among the six state officers comprising the ex ecutive council. Governor Stanley, Attorney General Godard and George Cole, auditor, voted first, last and all the time for the Mail and Breeze. Secretary Clark, Superin tendent Nelson and Treasurer Grimes were as loyal In their support of the Capital. The deadlock could not be broken and a compromise was finally effected by the terms of which the Capital had the official work for the first year of the ad ministration, the Mail and Breeze hav ing the year ending next March. This gives the weekly the profitable part of the business, the legislative work com ing in the present year. The publication of laws and other official documents during the session usually amount from $1,000 to $2,000. This feature of the offi cial paper's work Is by far the most profitable. The sentiment of the state officers does not seem to have undergone any par ticular change since the last selection ef the official paper. The governor will not support the Capital and the same is true of the at torney general and the auditor. It ia said that Superintendent Nelson is par tially In favor of the Mail and Breeze being continued as the official paper, but he is in such a position that It would be practically Impossible fop him to turn his back on the Capital. Some of the members of the adminis tration who have been warm support ers of the Capital have been much an gered by the recent cartoon of the gov ernor which appeared in the Capital. Unless there is something to circumvent it, the chances are that the cartoon will be lesponsible for the defeat of the Capital's ambition to succeed the Mail and Breeze for the ensuing two years. Some of the Capital's friends, whether authorized or not, have suggested the propriety of a law requirin" that the official paper be a daily, but this plan will not be followed, because the man agement of the Capital, publicly at least, disclaims any intention of seeking to thus deprive papers, not published daily, of tha opportunity to compete for the business. MONUMENT FOR BRAVE GIRL Jennia Wade, Who Carried Water to Soldiers at Gettysburg. Clinton, Ia, Dec. 24. The members of the Iowa relief corps, the auxiliaries of the Grand Army of the Republic, have undertaken to raise t-SW with which to erect a monument to the memory of Jen nie Wade, the young woman killed at the battle of Gettysburg, and one of the few women killed during the civil war. The reason why the Iowa women have undertaken this task is because Mrs. George Wade MeClellan, a sister of the dead girl., lives at Denison, la., and is a leader in the work of the relief corps. The society in Iowa now numbers 8.298 members and the committee having- the work in charge asks that each society send 10 cents a member. It is considered doubtful whether the sum can be realized from so smaH a subscription, and it is proposed to ask the Grand Army posts to make up whatever deficits there may be. It is intended to secure the money in time to dedicate the monument next July on the occasion of the celebration of the thirty-eighth anniversary of the bat tle. The story of Jennie Wade is an interest ing one. She lived with her parents on the battlefield of Gettysburg and when it was fought she was yet in her teens. The Wade home stood back a short distance from the union lines. When the battle began Jennie drew water from . a well with a windlass and carried it to trie thirsty and wounded soldiers on the firing line. This she kept up till the firing ceased at night. The next morning even before light she was at her work and continued it all day. On the morning of the third day a party of soldiers came to the house .and asked for something to eat. Mrs. Wade made a fire and Jennie began preparations to bake some biscuits. When busy with her work in the kitchen a mus ket ball crashed through the door and. striking the girl, killed her instantly. The following day she was buried in a coffin made by a confederate officer who had been taken prisoner. The brick house oc cupied then by the Wades still stands and the hole made by the bullet in the door before it ended the life of Jennie Wade is still seen. SCRANTON PEOPLE WALK. Only One or Two Cars Are Running in the City. Scranton, Pa., Dec. 24. The strike cf the motormen and conductors of the Scranton Railway company which began yesterday continues today.

Clark of the company arrived from Philadelphia last night and is in conference today with General Manager Silliman. They expect to get more cars running tomorrow with men who are ex pected from Philadelphia and are to be quartered in the company's office build ing. Thus far there has been no trouble.

"I had a verv success ful season at my theater in Paris." she said, "and I have now many new dances and effects which have never been seen here before. Just think, in one of my costumes I wear 1.000 yards of material." Miss Fuller smiled in a noncommittal way when the Duke of Manchester name was mentioned and merely said: "He is a fine fellow." She refused to dis cuss the reported snub she had, given him at d'Armenonville last July. ' La Loie will open at Koster & Blal's next week with a company of twelve per sons and thirty-one tons of scenerv and accessories. She is on her wav to japan, where she will appear at the Court thea ter, Tokio. on April 1, with Sada Yacco and Kawawaml, who produced Japanese plays in Paris last winter. Subsidy For Steamer Lines. Vancouver, B. C, Dec. 4. The city will submit to the taxpayers a proposal to bonus and inaugurate a northern steamship service to Alaska and con nections with Yukon points.

It is hoped also to secure a liberal subsidy from the general government. Revolt in Venezuela. " Curacoa, Dutch Guiana, Dec 24 fvia Haytien cable).
