New Y'rvrk, Feb. 22. The Rev. Dr. Oh a s. H. Parkhurst in the course of an Interview last night on vice in New York, the present conditions in police af f lira and the outlook for municipal re form said: "I have Ion? been an advocate of a pir.pie headed police department. Wheth er "the new chief be personally and through associations, good, bad or indif ferent, the new condition will be an im provement over the old, because it will 2io longer be possible either to shift or to evade responsibility for the acts of the department. If the work of the new hief be weii done his will be the credit. If the FVMtm of corruption and subsi dized vice continuts to nourish, he will not be abie to shirk his responsibility and the people will know whose is the fault. , i But right here, in connection with this new law I want to say that I think tine fatal mistake has been made in Al bany and I fear its consequences will be Feru-us. It was a gross error to place in the hands of the governor the power to remove the chief arbitrarily and withotit a hearing. The principle of municipal home rule is already deeply rooted in Kew York and it is grow ins in strength. "This city is surely great enough, large enough and strong: enough to b-j intrusted with the management of its own municipal business, and its people, in my opinion are certain to resent legis lation that gives such power into the hands of the state. My fear has beer, ail along that this outburst of popular indignation might not be sustained un til it could be made effective at the polls. ! "I have been wondering and giving perious thought to the problem, how can we continue to appeal to the great mass of dectnt citizens regardless of party ties, rouse them from their threat ened apathy and hold their interest in a nistained movement for real municipal reform? "I have about concluded that we can Jiest do it by showing them the perils and pitfalls to which their children and ours are exposed by the systematic tol eration and encouragement of the most reputive reform, of vice. In so far as I ran influence it that will be the direc tion the campaign of enlightenment will take from this time forward. Once you begin to discuss rival candidates and 1 arty policies, partisan and factional di visions occur and the splits are likely t widen, but if the real conditions that jnenace our children can be painted as tliey actually exist and every father in New- Y'ork can be brought to realize that the picture is a true one, then we appeal to a sentiment that is as broad as hu man nature itself. "I know too well what these condi tions are. Talk about the church saving the young. Good Heavens why the MAKE THE CHANGE Before Coffee Wrecks You, "The right man came along one day hen he told me that coffee drinking as the cause of my gastritis, nervous ness, torpid liver, and trembling hands that interfered with my business, that of mechanical drawing, but coffee was my only habit and I loved it so that I did not see how I could give it up. If he had not been so enthusiastic re garding the relief in his case by leaving .t coffee and taking Postum food Cof fee l could not have mustered up will tower enough to abandon my favorite everage. I left off coffee that day at lunch and had a cup of Postum. It was made good unl had a rich, dark color, with a deli cious flavor that I could not tell from regular coffee. It pleased the eye, smell nnd palate, so I had It each day at the restaurant for the noondav lunch, and disc overed a decided improvement in my condition, but it was not until I left off ofiee for breakfast and used Postum in its place that real relief set in. Now I m free from gastritis, headaches, and fully appreciate the value of the 'nerve ase.' No more trembling hands and no more nervous prostration. I am well, nnd feel that I should say to others who ;ire being poisoned by a beverage that they uo not suspect, 'coffee,' 'Make the c hange before the poison works destruc tion in you." " This letter is from a New York me chanical draughtsman. Name can be furnished by the Postum Cereal Co., at BatUa Creek, Mica. L for SATURDAY ! young of this city today are being de bauched daily in the resorts of vice, in the pool rooms and gambling houses, in the very public streets and the door ways of dwelling houses faster than all the Christian churches can hope to save them. For these offensive conditions I do not much blame the rank and file of the po lice force. For them I feel much sym pathy and friendship. They, too, are too often the victims of the vicious system to which they are forced to be subser vient." MIXED ON ORDERS. Cause of the Disastrous Railroad Wreck on the Pennsylvania. Trenton, N. J., Feb. 22 The total number of dead In the Pennsylvania railroad wreck at Rusling3 Siding near Bordentown last night is now known to be at least ten. There are eight bodies in the Trenton morgue and Coroner Bower went to the scene of the wreck this morning to bring two more bodies to Trenton that had been taken from underneath the wreckage during the early morning. The only dead persons yet identified are Kngineer Karle, of the "Nellie Ely" express, Bagagemaster James Birmingham, of the local train, and J. W. Nale. of Trenton, who was a passenger on the local train. It Is be lieved that one of the dead bodies is that of Wm. McKinney, also of Trenton. Engineer Thompson, of the local train who is at St. Nicholas hospital, is in a very precarious condition. Frank Bol den, a passenger on the local train, who lost both legs, wall probably die and two others of the injured, both Italians, are in a serious condition, but the rest will recover. Fireman Clarwood of the local train who is at the Mercer hospit-.l is credited with having made the statement that the orders to Engineer Thompson of the local, wes-e to take the siding at Rus lings and await the passing of the sec ond section of the "Nellie Bly." As it was the third section of the train crash ed into the local. There appears to have been a misunderstanding of orders. IS KING INDEED. Edward Proving a Much Better Ruler Than Expected. New York, eb. 22. King Edward's activity and interest in his work con tinues unabated says the Tribune's Lon don correspondent. Every detail re ceives his attention and he insists upon having accurate knowledge of every thing and forming an independent opin ion. Those in touch with the court as sert that all t.ie important addresses and messages to the nation, army, navy and foreign rulers have been written by the king himself. He rises early, work3 late, sleeps little, and his health already reveals the benefit of this close occupa tion. . EDWARD'S CORONATION. England's Great Event Expected to Happen in August New York. Feb. 22. There is mun.i talk about the coronation of King Ed ward in midsummer, says the Tribune's London correspondent, but there is noth ing authoritative on the subject from the court. It cannot take place until the period of deep mourning is at an end nor until the return of the Duke of Cornwall from the colonies. August is the earliest month when the condition can be complied with, and while this would not be too late from the W'est End tradesmen's point of view, it would break into the shooting season and in terfere with court gaiety. The pressure from the trading section of the metrop olis is great and the court may decide to hasten the coronation as a popular measure of relief to the shop keepers. The objection that the ceremonial re quires a year s preparation is absurd. The tradesmen are confident that the present will be the last of the short sea son. They assort that with the king in a permanent residence in London the season will begin in February every year and last until August 15. WIRELESS TELEGRAPHY. Tesla to Make Test From New Jersey to Portugal Coast. New. York, Feb. 22. According to the Tribune's London correspondent, Nikola Tesla will test his system of transatlan tic wireless telegraphy along the 40th parallel, from the coast of New Jersey to the coast of Portugal. James Gal braith of New York, left London last night for Lisbon, with, the electrical parts to be used in trial. To Aid Beet Sugar Refiners. Toronto, Feb. 22. The Ontario govern ment has announced its bill to encour age refining of beet sugar. The sum of STa.Ono per year will be set apart for three years, the bonus Jo refiners will consist of one-half cent per pound for the first year and one-quarter cent per pound for the succeeding two years, the refiners to pay farmers $4 per ton for beets. Signed by OdelL Albany, N. Y., Feb. 22. Governor Odeil today signed the bill providing for a single headed police commission in New York City. t FIRST OF THE CENTURY. British. Columbia Legislature Attracts Many Spectators. Seattle. Feb. 22. A special to the Post Intelligencer from Victoria, B. C says: The first legislature of British Colum bia in this century was formally opened at 4 o'clock yesterday by his honor, the lieutenant governor in the presence of a large gathering of spectators. A unique Interest attached to the event through the presence of about 40 men of the dif ferent South African contingents hailing from this province. Tne appearance o! i these strapping fellows evoked the wild est enthusiasm. The Fifth regiment, as usual, furnished the guard, while the Khaki men formed a complimentary es cort on each side of the center aisle of the chamber up which the governor passes to the throne. The chaplain for the occasion was Rev. H. B. Blyth, the new pastor of the Congregational church here, who was through the campaign as a corporal in the Canadian artillery Sir Henri Jolly, was attended by Rear Admiral Bickford and his staff by Cap tain Casement of H. M. S. Amphion, and Commander Simpson of H. M. S. Egeria, with a number of their officers Lieut. Col. Grant and officers of the H. E. and H. A.; by Lieut. Col. Gregory and offi cers of the Fifth regiment. The brilliant uniforms of these officers harmonized with the more somber Khaki and made a striking picture look ing down upon the scene from the press gallery. Mourning gowns prevailed among the ladies, in whose costumes the absence of color was most noticeable. NIPPED THE FAKIRS. New Yorkers Defeated in Scheme to Secure $5,000 in Diamonds. New York, Feb. 22. Four men calling themselves brokers are under arrest here. They are Frederick H. Hoeder, of this city, John F. Cavanagh of Pitts burg, Oscar Litchtenstadt and Leopold Oppenheimer of this city. The four men were arrested in the diamond office of Wm. Rosenfeld, Maiden Lane. Several days ago Oppen heimer cailed at the oflice with Roeder and Cavanagh, saying his friends want ed to buy about $5,000 worth of diamond jewelry-. They picked out that amount of gems and said they would call again and pay for them. They called again and told Rosenfeld they would leave as security a deed for property on Weet Sixty-second street, which they said Cavanagh owned. Rosenfeld notified the police and detectives who were as signed to the case reported that Cava nagh had no claim whatever to the property. The four men called again at the Maiden Lane office. They turned over a deed to Rosenfeld showing that Chas. Chapman had deeded to Cavanagh the property on West Sixty-second street. They were arrested and the police found on Cavanagh a bond and mortgage cer tificate for $10,000 made out to Rosenfeld to be handed over to his keeping till the diamonds were paid for. The bond had a short affidavit attached to the effect that Cavanagh owned the property. It iiad passed the register's office in due form and the notary's signature was all right. The detectives say that the scheme in this kind of an affair is to answer an advertisement in a newspaper about property for sale. Those in the scheme see the owner or agent and deposit $50 or $1C0 for the temporary possession of deed so it may be shown ostensibly to a lawver for those interested. ORGAN GRINDING EARL. Will Make Another Effort to Get His Title and Estates. London, Feb. 22. Proceedings have been started in behalf of Viscount Hin ton, who at one time played an organ in London streets to eject the youthful Earl Poulette from Hinton House, pend ing the trial of the question of his right to the ef.rldom. An injunction will be asked for to restrain the present occu pant of the family estates from using the title f Earl Poulette. When Wm. Henry. Earl Poulette. died in London, January 22. 1SS9, the succes sion to his title and estates came into dispute. The old earl was thrice mar ried and the organ grinding claimant to his estate declares himself to be his eld est son by Miss Elizabeth Virginia New man, daughter of a land port pilot whom the earl married in 1849. The earl's sec ond marriage was without issue. In 1S79 he contracted a marriage, his third, with Rosa De Melville, daughter of Alfred Hugh De Melville, and the son of this union now enjoys the estates and property which the claimant will at tempt to possess by process of law. The alleged Earl Poulette has long lived among the London poor, support ing himself by organ grinding. He has given some study to the matter of the housing of the London masses, with whose life and hardships he is personally familiar. The old earl never concealed his hatred for his organ grinding son, whom he characterized as an imposter. He was so opposed to his eventually en joying his estates that he attempted so to entail and mortgage them during his life time, that even If his son were suc cessful in his effoffrts to be recognized as his father's lawful heir there would be little if any property for him to enjoy. While the earl's son by his third wife enjoys the estate and uses the title, his claim thereto has never been confirmed by the courts. A SIMPLE SYSTEM. . New 'Wireless Telegraphy Can Be Used With One Day's Instructions. New York. Feb. 22. Of the experiments in wireless telegraphy recently conducted off Browhead. Ireland, on buard the steamship Georince, one of the experimenters, Alexander W. Sharman, who has arrived here, said: The system adopted is that invented by Coionel Henry Montague Mosier, secre tary of Lloyds, and Mr. Nevil Maskelyne of London, a well known astronomer and electrician. The apparatus used in this system is altogether different from that employed by the Marconi syndicate. "Our apparatus is simple in construction and eay to manipulate, so that the or dinary marine signalman Is able to use it after a day's instruction. The steamer was ten miles from Browhead and sig nals were exchanged as the Oeorgice continued on her regular course at usual speed until she was twentv-five miles from Browhead. when the tests discon tinued. The messages were easily read." Mr. Sharman said the advantage of this system is that is works equally well in all kinds of weather. Mr. Sharman w ill return on the Georgice and the experiment will be 'resumed at the steamer approaches the Irish coast. Chicago's Big Ice Crop. Chicago, Feb. 22. The Tribune says: Ice will be more plentiful in Chicago this year than last. Already 1,500,000 tons of the commodity have been harvested, and if the cold weather continues two more weeks over 2.000.000 tons will be stored. In addition the artificial ice companies have increased their capacity. Unless some of the independent concerns should precipitate an ice war, prices are ex pected to remain unchanged.

Assignee For a New York Estate Ob jects to Court's Ruling. New York, Feb. 22. Charles A. B. Pratt, the assignee of the estate of Ben jamin W. Hitchcock, who was substi tuted for Frederick A. Silverstone, as as signee, in January, 1S97, has made an application to Justice McAdam in the supreme court for a re-taxation of his disbursements on a final accounting by him by the county clerk in which ex penses were disallowed that he thought should be paid, amounting to $504.33. When Hitchcock, who was a music pub lisher and real estate dealer, failed in 1S93, his estate was estimated at over $870,000 and his liabilities at $280,000. The final accounting by Silverstone in 1897 showed that he had received $833,563 but he claimed credits of more than $S33,00O. Fifty creditors objected to the confir mation of his accounts and Mr. Pratt was substituted as assignee. YEXED CANAL QUESTION. Colombian Minister Comtt to Treat With the United States. New York, Feb. 22. The Tribune says: Dr. Carlos Martinez Silva, the minister 01 foreign affairs of the republic of Col ombia who is now in Washington, came to the country fully prepared and auth orized by the government to negotiate a treaty with the United States for the Panama canal. The concession of this canal, which is held by the French Pan American Canal company a few months ago was extended from 1904 to 1910, on payment of $1,000,000 but Colombia be lieves she can induce this company to sell its rights to the United States. J. T. Ford, an engineer who is associated with Dr. Silva as expert adviser and from whom this information was obtained, says he believes that the treaty which Colombia wishes to negotiate, "will give to the United States every shred of con trol over the canal that any person could demand, short of an actual purchase in fee simple or transfer of sovereignty. This," said Mr. Ford, "is impossible not only at Panama, but, as you will ob serve, in the very vague offers from Nicaragua and Costa Rica no such thing is there mooted." A NATIONAL CRUSADE. Presbyterian Church Plans a Cam paign of Education. Pittsburg, Feb. 22. Plans were adopt ed yesterday by the permanent temper ance committee of the general assembly of the Presbyterian church for a nation al campaign of education on the temper ance question.

The postnaster gen eral has given notice of a resolution pro viding for Canada's share in the increased cost of the Pacific cable. The act of 1S99 authorized a contribution of five eighteenths of an estimated cost of 1,700. 000. Tenders called since then bring the cost up to two million pounds. This sum the British government is willing to ad vance and parliament will be asked to au thorize the government to pay 4 per cent per year on Canada's share of five-eighteenths of the two millions. SALISBURY'S RETIREMENT. Rumor Is Persistently Circulated About London. New York, Feb. 22. Rumors about the retirement of Lord Salisbury are persist ently circulated, says the Tribune's Lon don correspondent, but are clearly pre mature. His health is not materially worse, but his interest in public life has lapsed since he abandoned the foreign office. He seems to have relegated to Mr. Balfour already the prime minister's duties of waiting upon the sovereign, and this is considered by some political ex perts as a sign that the nephew will suc ceed the uncle. The strongest leader of the Unionist side is Mr. Chamberlain. WANTS HIS PAY. Attorney Who Was to Help Oust a Populist Has a Claim. After success crowned the contest in stituted by Wr. A. Owen to unseat Tim othy Hackett, in the house. Dr. W. If. Balrd, who was beaten by J. M. Davis by 24 votes in the same county of Bourbon, was induced to start a con test also. A sensational Paul Revere ride was made for thirty miles across the county by two officers in order to serve legal notice upon Davis, and that was the last heard of it. The session is so near a close that there is no expec tation of its being taken up now, and the limit has expired, if limits were ob served. B. Hudson, Baird's attorney, is here, and he would like to get an attorney's fee and costs out of it. The plan was to file the papers and have them referred to the elections committee, so that they could make a finding for the expenses. The member who was asked to make the motion could not summon the cour age to do it, the story goes, and the state may be sived the footing of this bill. Vicar General of Indianapolis Dead.

Good Scores Being Made at the Long Island Traps. Garden City, L. I.. Feb. 22 There were four absentees from the list of 17 trap shooters entered to contest for the ama teur pigeon shooting championship which opened yesterday when the event was resumed at the Cartaret Gun club grounds today. These were R. A. WTelch, C. S. Guthrie, W. S. Hill and Yale Dolan, who had missed 15, 13, 12 and 11 birds," respectively, out of their first 45. The weather conditions were almost similar to those of yesterday. A stiff northwest wind which was biting cold made the picked birds faster than ever and the shooters were half blinded by the sun as they faced the traps. When the men had shot five rounds, completing just half of the contest there were some changes in the standing of the leaders. Dr. Wilson, who held the lead with 44 killed, missed his 49th bird, a circling in-comer. C. A. Painter killed straight and tied the doctor for first honors, each having five misses marked against him. Harold Money missed two birds and as Kirkover, the Buffalo man, still kept shooting in fine form, thesa two tied with 43 kills each. D. I. Bradley and Col. Martin, who are the next best on the list, each missed one bird and are fifth and sixth re spectively. COFFEIVILLE'S NEW COURT Bill Recommended to Extend Juris diction of City Court Two years ago Coffeyville was given a city court by act of the legislature. At this session Representative Dooley is having the court changed into a sec ondary district court for Montgomery county. It is to have the same original jurisdiction as the regular district court at Independence in cases of misdemeanor and civil jurisdiction in cases involving amounts up to $2,000. The Coffeyville court's juries are limited to the same as justices of the peace, numbering six, but appeal is from it to the supreme court. Coffeyville will fare better than Pittsburg even, if the bill becomes a law, because it will have a judge of its own who is paid $1,200 a year by the state, and he may appoint a stenograph er and reporter also. There was a fight over it, for the Girard contingent in the Crawford county court fight have it in for Dooley, but the committee of the whole recom mended the bill for passage by a narrow margin.

Lumber Mill Burns. Astoria, Ore., Feb. 22. The, Glatsop Lumber mill has been burned. The fire originated in the engine room and spread so rapidly that the men hardly got out of the building in time to save their lives. Five schooners loading in sheds were destroyed. The loss is estimated at $75,000 and is partially covered by in surance. The mills were running night and day to fill orders. t Militia Law Changed.
