The director of con tracts, a major, said to a representative of the Associated Press: "The new rule relating to army boef applies only to refrigerated beef hither to bought In the open market In Lon don. It will not seriously affect the American trade as the total weekly sup ply for the army ia only 2W.0OO pounds, which i3 barely 2 per cent of the weekly imports of refrigerated beef into Erg land from the L'nited States. Mr. Brod erick's action was taken long before the New Orleans proceedings. It is quite ab surd to suppose that any Idea of re taliation prompted the order, which was due to a natural desire to help some of the home industries. The difference In price is very triflinsr and we are m.iking that up by giving Tommy Atkins frozen mutton two days instead of one day weeKly. If the plan is satisfactory our supply problem will be greatly simpli fied, for we often have complaints and disagreements over refrigerated beol. Tou must not suppose that we now use no home grown beef. Aldersliot and some of our other camps are almost entirely supplied with home grown beef. We hav hitherto used refrigerated beef as an addition to our rations, rather thin as an integral part. We have no preju dice against American firms and we do not believe they will miss this trade to any extent, even if it Is decided to con tinue the experiment." DOCTORS CAN'T TELL "Whether or Not Ann Arbor Btndent Has Bubonic Plague. Chicago, April 12. A special to the Record-Herald from Ann Arbor, Mich., says: Dr. Novy when asked regarding the condition of Charles B. Hare, the stu dent who is supposed to have the bu bonic plague, said: "Nothing yet has been decided, but tie is recovering rapidly.

Preparations are underway by members of the Trinity Mission chapel to make the return of the Rev. John Keller to the pulpit at Ar lington, N. J., an incident memorable in the church's history. It is not the inten tion to advertise the time of his reap pearance, but every member of the con gregation will know of it, and it is in tended that the warmth of the greeting shall set at rest rumors that there is among them a division of sentiment re garding the charges made against the pastor by Mrs. Barke' whose husband shot him. Wrapped in a heavy ulster and so dis guised behind a large piair of colored spectacles that several of his friends did not know him, Mr. Keller this week took his first trip in the open air since the shooting. The trip consisted of an hour's drive through the country with Dr. Jas. A. Exton, in the doctor's carriage. In the short walk from the house to the curb Mr. Keller showed unmistak able signs of his defective vision. He kept hold of the hand of his physician and set his feet forward timidly. Physi cian and patient drove past the sp-t where the shooting took place and turn ed west into Midland avenue and down the incline at West Arlington to the handsome new driveway just completed along the Passaic river. . As they drove along Mr. Keller could distinguish only the chief features of the landscape. Even this, however, appeared to bring him delight and he laughed and chatted mer rily. When they got back home again several neighbors who had seen the wounded clergyman go out and were on the watch for his return met them. Dr. Exton hurried his patient through the small sized crowd, however, declining to let him stop even for a moment's cha1- R1DGELY RESENTS IT. Says Populists Do Not Intend to Be Legislated Out of State. Ex-Congressman E. R. Ridgely, chair man of the Populist state central com mittee, dropped into Populist headquar ters here at 4 o'clock Thursday afternoon and spent a brief hour between trains gathering up the leading strings of state politics again after his winter in Wash ington. This was Mr. Ridgely's first ap pearance in Topeka since the close of the campaign last fall. The air of worry over the conduct of a strenuous campaign is gone. The polished environment of Washington has brought back to him crispness and in clsiveness and his very appearance some how suggests strength and readiness for another battle. "The turn of affairs In Kansas has cre ated new conditions." he said in an in terview, "and it will necessitate a new line of action. In my absence I have not familiarized myself with the new elec tion laws and have not had time to di gest them since my return. I have talk ed with very few of our people so am not aware of the state of sentiment among them even." "As chairman of the state committee what is your view of anti-fusion law and its effect? What about keeping your party alive " was asked. "The People's party is very much alive. It will certainly maintain Its identity and is doing business right straight along at the old stand. I find the head quarters here at work actively and have approval for what is done. As for my self," tartly, "I can say we do not pro pose to be legislated out of the state. The people's party will make direct leg islation the issue in the next campaign. We are going to begin right at home to practice what we preach. The next meeting of the central committee is to be set by referendum. The chairman will not make an arbitrary call, you understand. Every member of the com mittee is asked by letter to express his views as to when the meeting shall be called. Shall we have it right awayfnr soon? or about the middle of May? or in June, July or August? Each will ap proximate the most suitable time In view of existing conditions and then we will set an exact date. Wa set down a line of principles that our party stands for and we will transact the business of our party by them. From this time out the party is to be governed as it would have the state governed."

A recent arrival from China is Ralph James, who for nearly 15 years has been extensively en gaged in mining at Kalgan, near Pekin, and in Siberia. Since his arrival he has placed orders for machinery to cost nearly $400,000. In an interview he said: "I have juit returned from a long sojourn in Russian and Chinese soil. It is my opinion that Russia will never take Manchuria or permit others to seize it. "Russia and the Russians are misun derstood. The evil of the misunderstand ing ia easily traced. It is due to the di plomatic use of newspapers by Great Britain. The latter is a jealous nation with a powerful navy. Her great factor ies have lost the trade with Russia and America has gained it, "In 1893 the Russian government first received a concession In Manchuria from China. Russia made a formidable fort out of Port Arthur and constructed a railroad across Manchuria at a cost of over $50,000,000. Last summer, during the troubles over $.30,000,000 damage was done this railroad by the boxers. In or der to save her property and preserve it from entire destruction Russia sent 125. 000 soldiers along the road and the Chi nese, who had become roving bands of outlaws and thieves, were driven almost entirely fr&m the country. "The emperor of Russia is a home lov ing man and his subjects who are now in that Manchurian army are of the farm ing class of Siberia and it is the emper or's wish to have his army sent home, where they are needed to prepare for the coming season's crops Still, Russian property must be protected and with such purpose in view Russia tried to gradually withdraw from Manchuria, making terms with Chinese officials to protect the great railroad. "The Chinese are well aware of the friendship of Russia. They know that in 1S93 me czar prevented Manchuria. Mongolia and Thibet from revolting and raising the Russian flag over their coun tries. The highest princes and priests of those three countries have visited the czar every year, praying for permission to raise the Russian flag over them, and every time these representatives receiv ed the same answer: 'Russia will never permit her flag to be raised over your countries. We want your country, peo pled by its present citizens, as a great open field and barrier between the popu lated districts of China proper and the borders of Russia.' "Had one gone along the line of the Trans-Siberian railway last fall, as I did, during the illness of the czar, there would have been a sight worthy the at tention of other nations to behold and ponder over. All the way from Vladi vostock in the east to Moscow in the west, men, women and children were kneeling in the streets in prayer for the recovery of their father, the czar. "The recent troubles In St. Petersburg was not of a serious character and were greatly magnified by the press, particu larly by the English. All this talk about the czar's guard and steel houses is bosh. The cabinet officers can be seen any day riding along the Nevsky Prospect and are seen of an evening at the hotels and restaurants." DEPARTMENT STOKE TRUST Charter Authorizes a Wide Range of Business. New York, April 32. A special to the Tribune from New Haven, Conn., says: The Associated Merchants company of New York, known as the department store trust company, gains wide range of powers through the charter rights or iginally granted by this state to the Col umbian Construction company, cf whlcii the New York company is the . out growth. The charter thus taken over author izes the company to conduct a manufac turing business, to own and equip steam or electric railroads, bridges, stores, buildings, warehouses, telephone, tele graph and electric lines, steamships and steamboats, vessels, ferry boats, surface or underground railways, to deal in real estpte, - stocks, franchises, securities, to negotiate with any other company re garding their stocks and establishimen' . to operate railroads in this or any other country. The company ts however, pro hibited from occupying any highway or public ground in this state for railroad purposes. These enormo-.is privileges are buried in the charter that passed both houses recently and which are now un derstood to have been put through Inr the benefit of the big organization.

Skoog, the Counterfeiter at Night Was Pious Mr. Brown by Day. New York, April 12. The Journal and Advertiser says: John Albert Skocg, the counterfeiter who now hovers between life and deatn in the prison ward at Bellevue hospital, the result of self-inflicted wounds, led a double life; and he did it so cleverly that hardly a person in Williamsburgh wjll believe that the would-be suicide and "Albert A. Brown," the photographer of Grand street, Williamsburgh, are one and the same. That he is a man who escaped from a prison in Joliet after killing a guard Is beyond their power ti realize. He was a favorite in the horms of his neighbors. In the Republican club of the district he was one of the leaders and was regarded as a power at the polls. In the Swedish church, at Leonard and Griggs avenue, the same "Brown" was one of the most devout worshippers and a regular contributor. To the poor of the district he was a veritable Robin Hood His neighbors said he gave away more than he could afford. They thought he lived on the proceeds of the little photographing es tablishment and did not know that night after night his printing press on the top floor was turning out 50 and 100 kroner notes, as well as notes of Uncle Sam's currency and bills of the Bank of Scot land. E. M. Clifford, who has charge of the house where Skoog lived, said that as "Brown" he was the best tenant they had Mrs. Clifford said she could not believe the man was a counterfeiter. Skoog's apartment was Just across the hall from her and Chief Hazen and his secret service men were, at the moment when she expressed her faith in Skoog, packing away the plates from which the counterfeits were printed. Skoog-'a apart ments were on the top floor. It was re ally a workshop. There was only one bed in the place. The back room waf given up to the tub in which he made his pa.per and the shelves in it were filled wKh bottles of chemicals and cans of inks. In the front room was a table and on it a hand press on which the bills were printed. The other furniture was a sofa and a mirror, with a. little work bench TV T Word he Wise About, Alfred Benjamin & Co. Clothes.
