American farmers and stock breeders
have an excellent opportunity to make
money for some years to come by em
barking in the business of breeding
horses for the use of the British army
in Afirca. England pays a good price
and is likely to be in the market as
long as her money holds out.
If Dewey or Schley had been sent af

petting foot on European soil. It might
have cost more than $110,000, but there
would have been something to show for
the expenditure besides the probability
that it would never have become neces
sary to do it again.
The principle of extending govern
ment aid to fairs has become so firmly
fixed that it is not surprising to note
that the promoters of the Pan-American
exposition contemplate asking the
nation to reimburse them to the
amount of $3,000,000 on account of losses
sustained by reason of small attendance
and large expenditures. There is an
abundance of money in the treasury

During that period he has spent 1,439
days in jail and has cost the county

is 65 years old but in appearance is
not over 45. The man is believed to be
a record-breaker in his line and War

Ware of Applause Greets Close
of Banner's Argunieat.
Washington, Nov. 6. At 3:23 p. :
Mr. Rayner closed his argument for
Admiral Schley was in tears as he de
livered his peroration. A wave of ap
plause swept over the room as Mr.
Rayner concluded. The court then ad
journed until 2 o'clock tomorrow.
During the passage-at-arms between
Capt. Lemly and Mr. Rayner, the for
mer accused the latter of attempting to
traduce the reputation of an officer.
This, he said, he had no right to do.
"And you," replied Mr. Rayner, "have
no right to traduce the reputation of
While Mr. Rayner was discussing the
testimony of Lieut. Commander Potts
before the Schley court of inquiry this
afternoon he said that the commander
had said that he always was "scared
in battle." Capt. Lemly protested
against this language, and a sharp ver
bal encounter between the two occurred
when Capt. Lemly said that Mr. Ray
ner was unreliable.
""You." replied Mr. Rayner, "are not
onlv unreliable, but you are offensive."
Admiral Dewey interfered to say that
the court would consider all the testi
mony that Lieut. Potts had said that
he was scared but that Mr. Rayner had
stretched the testimony a little. There
was. however, no occasion for ascerbity.
Capt. Lemly then said he regretted hav
ing made the remark and Mr. Rayner
continued his speech.
Referring to the Hodgson controversy
CaDt. Parker said that he really De-
lieved Hodgson desired to tell the truth
but unfortunately he had told a ctir
ferent story every time he had opened
his mouth. Capt. Parker said he did
not know how the alleged controversy
over the danger of colliding with the
Texas arose except from the story
which had been told by the captain of
the Iowa. The speaker was very sar
castic in his allusion to Capt. bvana
alleged statement regarding the damage
he had done to the Spanish ships. Capt.
Parker concluded with a glowing tribute
to Admiral Schley.
Mr. Rayner began his argument at
11:25 a. m. He paid a compliment to
Judge Advocate Lemly and his assist
and, Mr. Hanna, for the "most judicial
impartiality with which they have man
aged this case."
Mr. Rayner made a plea for the con
sideration of Questions from what was
at that time Commodore Schley's point
"Let us," he said, "put ourselves in
his place and see what the circum
stances were. We know now what it
would have been wise to do."
Discussing dispatch No. 7 known as
the "Dear Schley" letter, Mr. Rayner
contended that the order conveyed in
that message made it incumbent upon
Commodore Schley to remain at Cien
fuegos. He declared that this was the
key to the whole case and that it did
not admit of any other construction
than that Commodore Schley should re
main at Cienfuegos..
He declared that Admiral Schley was
the victim of an unfortunate combina
tion of circumstances that left him in
total darkness as to the loca
tion of the Spanish fleet.
Concerning the question of coaling at
sea, Mr. Rayner read the testimony of
several witnesses to prove the great
difficulties such a task involved. He
said that all they wanted to prove was
that Admiral Schley was honest when
he informed the department of his in
creased anxiety regarding the -coal sup
ply and that he acted according to the
dictates of his own conscience.
He was prepared to prove that one ship
could not have followed the Spaniards
six hours and have had enough coal to
return to Keir West. -
Coming to the reconnoissance of "May 31,
Mr. Riiyner contended that it had been
Commodore Schley"s chief intention to
develop the Spanish land batteries and in
this, he said, he had been eminently
successful. He claimed that the man who
was in command at such a time should
be given great discretion, for he must
necessarily know more of the situation
than the gentlemen who make out battle
plans at norne on charts with compass
and lead pencils and direct other people
thousands of miles away how to tight a
TINY FEET NO CHARM.
Mme. Wu Says Chinese "Women Are
Dropoing Old Practice.
San Francisco, Nov. 6. Fashion is
less capricious in China than in any
other part of the world, but. even there
a sentiment is growing in favor of al
lowing women's feet to grow to a larger
and more nearly normal size than has
hitherto been the practice. In China
the small foot has been for woman the
mark ot artistic caste, but it seems a
change is coming, slowly of course, as
all changes come in China, but percep
tibly. This on the authority of Mme.
Wu, wife of the Chinese minister at
Washington, who has just returned
from a visit to her Oriental home.'
For Wales Hospital Fund.
New York. Nov. 6. The exhibition of
Prince Chiggi's Botticelli, which is now
owned by Mrs. John L. Gardner of Bos
ton, has opened in London for the benefit
of the Prince of Wales hospital fund in
the Colnaghi gallery, says the Tribune's
London representative. The critics unite
in pronouncing it one of the Botticelli's
most charming works, the background of
hills and river being considered as beau
tiful as the Madonna herself and the at
tendant angel, but the process of judi
cious renovation is regarded with signs of

Chairman Dick's Latest Esti
mate of Nash's Majority.
Columbus, O., Nov. 6. Chairman Dick
at noon gave out the following:
"We have heard from 53 -counties, S5
still being out. These 53 counties show
net Republican gains over the election
for governor two years ago of 27,175,
which added to Nash's plurality in 1S99
makes a Republican plurality of 76,738.
Cuyahoga county is among those not
yet reporting and that county is still
claimed by the Republicans although
the Democrats claim it by 73. But
with Cuyahoga as a stand off, the net
net result would be a loss to Nash.
"Jones carried Cuyahoga county two
years ago and Nash had 13,914 ov?r
McLean, deducting this from 76,;38,
Nash's plurality in 53 counties would oe
62,827. Then if the other 34 counties
maintain the ratio of the 53 that, are in
the plurality for Nash will be over 75,
000 and probably over 85,000 for the rest
of the Republican state ticket.
"With Cuyahoga county conceded to the
Democrats the Republicans havt 21 of the
33 state senators and 70 of the 110 repre
sentatives, with a probable increase
when the other 34 counties have re
ported." Since noon Chairman Dick, on the per
centage oi gains, estimaieu tne j-i miss
ing counties, and this indicated that com
plete returns mav make Nash's uluralitv
over 85.000 and the rest of the ticket con
siderably above that figure.
Cleveland, Nov. 6. Complete election
returns from Cuyahoga county give
Nash (Rep.) 31,741; Kilbourne (Dem.),
32,010. Kilburne's plurality, 269.
The Democrats elect their entire leg
islative and county ticket with the ex
ception of Hatfield for judge of the
common pleas court, who is defeated
by Phillips (Rep.) Phillips' plurality is
Cincinnati, Nov. 6. Unofficial returns
received here from 81 of the 8S counties
in Ohio show a plurality for Nash, Re
publican, for governor, of 55,248. The
seven counties not heard from gave
Nash two years ago a plurality of 5,878.
Assuming that this plurality will be the
same this year Nash's total plurality
in the state would be 61,126.
MAJORITY OF SIX.
Claims of Maryland Democrats on
Joint Legislative Ballot.
Baltimore, Nov. 6. Chairman Van
devir, of the state central committee,
when asked if he had any confirma
tory reports as to the alleged Demo
cratic victory in AUeghany county,
said he had not.
"I am prepared to believe It, how
ever," he added, "and will be mighty
glad if it proves correct."
Asked for his figures on the general
assembly, Mr. Vandiver said: "We will
have a majority in the general assem
bly of six on joint ballot and will have
no difficulty in organizing the lower
house. This estimate does not include
Cecil county, which we are inclined to
concede to the Republicans."
Later advices from Allegany tend to
confirm the reports that the Democrats
have mad5 sufficient gains there to give
them a fair chance of securing the legis
lative delegation, at least in part. It
is regarded as certain that Lewis. Dem
ocrat, has been elected over Roman. Re
publican, for senator by about 200 ma
jority. Whether the missing districts will
alter this result remains to be seen.
At Republican headquarters in this city
the defeat of Roman is conceded, but it
is claimed that the rest of the legisla
tive ticket is elected. The Republicans
also claim gains in Talbot. Cecil and
other counties, which they assert will give
them 40 votes in the lower house and en
able them to organize it. They are in
clined to admit the election of Isaac Loeb
Strauss. Democrat, in the Second legisla
tive district of Baltimore, where he ran
ahead of his ticket. Several precincts are
still missing in that district and it is
possible that they may elect one other
Democratic candidate there.
Not a word has been heard from St.
Marys and Prince Georges counties as
yet. Both are close counties, with Re
FROM MISS STONE
Letter ReceiTed Dated Oct.
toy U. S. Consul.
Washington, Nov. 6. The state de
partment received a cablegram from
Consul General Dickinson at Constan
tinople saying that he had received a
letter from Miss Stone, the missionary
held by brigands for ransom, lated Oc
Sofia, Bulgaria, Nov. 6. The brigands
having Miss Ellen M. Stone, the Ameri
can missionary and her companion,
Madame Tsilka in their custody were
in Bulgarian territory near the Turkish
frontier last week, according to author
itative intelligence. The captives were
lodged in caves and fires were lighted
to protect them from the severe cold.
Since then the brigands and the women
have gone to some place unknown.
The fact that violent measures, sucn
as mutilation, to extort ransom, were
taken, indicates that the brigands are
under the impression that the longer
they wait the better will be the terms
obtainable. ' This attitude is regarded as
being partly due to the publicity given
to the subscriptions toward tne ran
som, and it is increasing the difficulty
exDerienced by Consul General Diekin-
son in his efforts to reduce the brigands.'

Callahan Produces Some Strong Testi
mony in Court.
Omaha. Nov. 6. The last bit of testi
mony in the Callahan perjury trial was
taken this morning and the arguments
were made during the afternoon. The

Harrv Strong, a laborer in South Oma
ha, testified that Phelps, who told of hav
ing seen Callahan in the vicinity ot tne
Melrose Hill house the day of the kid
naping, was working with him the day
of the abduction and that they were
some miles from the scene of the crime.
George Metford testified to having seen
the man who purchased the Burris pony
and that it was not Callahan.

HER ONLY FRI EN D.
England is Heartily Disliked by AH
Except United States.
New Tork, Nov. 6. According to the
London correspondent of the Tribune,
Englishmen have been noticing with
surprise the bitter resentment existing
in Germany caused by Mr. Chamber
lain's casual reference to the Franco
Prussian war. It is a straw showing
the direction of the wind in Germany,
where, in spite of the emperor's cordial
relations with the reigning house here,
England is regarded as an industrial
enemy and is not liked. This revela
tion of anti-English feeling in Germany
strengthens the desire of public men
and the press in London for a settle
ment of all outstanding questions be
tween England and America. An ex
pression commonly heard that good
feeling with America will be worth more
than the closest alliance with Germany.
The objection raised by Canada to a
settlement of the canal controversy is
attracting attention, but the hope is
entertained that Premier Laurier's in
fluence will be exercised and that there
will be no opposition from Ottawa to
embarrass the foreign office in opening
a way for the adjustment of the entire
series of Caradian questions.

formerly stood on the walls of Pekin,
the Berlin correspondent of the London
Times and the New York Times says:
The most ornamental of the guns
will be placed in the naval museum at
Berlin. The others will be melted for
the sake of the bronze in them.
The Kreifield also brought a number
of Chinese gun carriages, with ammu
nition and wagons.

COOK WASN'T NEEDED.
Sheriff Called to Willard to Take Care
of Drunken Man.
Sheriff Cook received a hurry up call
from Willard last night and went out to
that village armed with weapons enough
to c-uell a riot.
He found that, like the south end of
the bridge ' at that point, the trouble
was in Wabaunsee county. A man by the
name of Cooper drank a few drinks too
many of whisky and became rather trou
blesome. He drove his family out of the
house and the family called on the bridge
gang for help. The bridge builders cap
tured Mr. Cooper and tied him in bed.
Mr. Cook found him in that Condition
when he arrived and left him.
