Stntcs Steel Trust.
London, April 21. The nllot
racnts of stock in the new shipping
corporation were all taken tip by
British members of the syndicate at
noon today. What proportion was
given to Europe tlie Morgans de
cline to say, but evidently it was
not nearly so large as desired by
the British interests.
J. P. Morgan is now in Paris,
but from other members of the firm
it is learned that the corporation
will be run almost exactly the same
as the United States Steel Corpora
tion, each branch retaining its indi
viduality, but being subject to the
control of the directing body. The
statements intended for the stock
holders of the new company, re
garding earnings, management,
etc., will be issued by a method
similar to the one now employed by
the steel corporation.
Regarding the defection of the
Cunard, Allen, Anchor and French
steamship lines, the Morgan firm
views are as follows: "It remains
to be seen whether they will come
in. We think it is" rather a good
thin ', in some respects, not to get
everybody in at the beginning, the
idea being that the present com
bine is quite big enough to start
with, and it is better to get it down
to a practical working basis befoic
being too anxious lo make a clean

Discussion nt Copenhagen Likely to
bo Terminated Today.
Copenhagen, April 22. The
Landsthing today encountered in
open session the treaty providing
for the sale of the Danish West
Indies to the United States. The
Foreign Minister, Dr. Deuntzer,
made a strong pro-sale speech, cov
ering the various arguments of the
opposition against the sale of the
islands. He created a sensation by
reading statements from the United
States officiul publications showing
that Estrup, the leader of the oppo
sition, offered to sell the islands to
tlie United States in 1892 when he
was Minister of Finance.
Ex-President Redtz-Thott and
the Ministerial leader, Madsen
Mygdal, followed, praising the
growth of Liberal institutions in
the United States and declaring
that the sale insured tlie prosperity
of the islands. It is expected that
the vote will be taken tomorrow.
Chinese Exclusion.
Washington, April 21. The
United States Supreme Court today
upheld the validity of a certain
portion of the Chinese exclusion
laws that came iu question through
the case of Lee Yen Tai, a Chinese
laborer who was captured on the
New York border. He claimed to
be a merchant and had no certifi
cate. He was ordered deported,
, mittcd him t0 l)aU pending an ap
' ' b
peal. The case hinged on one ques
tion, whether section 12 of the act
of 1882, as amended by the act of
1883, and continued by the act of
1892, was rendered void by the
treaty of 1894. Section 12 required
I a Ul1111e.se entering tlie united
States by land to produce a certifi
cate showing right to enter.
American Stocks In Paris.
Paris, April 22. The question
of listing the stock of the United
States Steel Corporation and other
American securities on the Paris
bourse lias been broached by J.
Pierpont Morgan, but there is little
prospect that the Idea will be car
ried out. The matter, it is ex
pected, will he settled tomorrow.
Itlso or From Two to Four Dollnrs at
llrny's Harbor.
Tacoma, (Wash.), April 21.
Six large lumber mills on Gray's
Harbor decided Saturday to make a
radical advance in the price of all
kinds of lumber. The advance
utlccts local business on Gray's har
bor, together with the markets oi
San Francisco and the Hawaiian
islands, to which a large portion of
the output of the Gray's harbor
mills is shipped. The increase in
prices ranges from $2 per thousand
on rough grades to $4 on finished
aild dressed stock.
Owners of mill say they have
been selling lumber on Gray's har
bor cheaper than at San Francisco
rind Southern Dalifornia ports. An
other reason is the fact that Gray's
harbor loggers have been gradually
advancing prices for several months.
Very soon log3 are likely to be
lower, however, on account of a de
cision of the Weyerhauser Timber
Company to immediately cut 150,
000,000 feet of logs along Wislikuh
river, where worms have destroyed
the timber.
The combination of mills to raise
prices includes the West and Slade
Mill Company, Wilson Brothers &
Co,, the American Mill Company,
Anderson & Middleton Mill Com
pany, the Aberdeen Lumber Conit
pany, and Uryden & Leiteh.

Jeffries Refuses the Loudon Offer.
New York, April 22. Bob Fitz
simmons received a telegram from
Jeffries today, in which the latter
practically refused the National
Sporting Club's offer, but said that
the prospect for bids looked bright
iu California. He said he would
post $2500, to be forfeited iu case
lie refused to accept the best bid,
and asked Fitzsimmons if his forfeit
was posted iu the same way.

Manila, April 22. Two engage
ments have been fought between
I the American troops and the Moros
ot the island of Mindano during
the last twenty-four hours. Moore
oi the Twenty-seventh Infantry,
while out with a small party hunt
ing for water, was firetl upon at
long range. Colonel Frank Bald
win with a battalion of troops and
a mountain gun went to the assis
tance of Moore's party and drove
off the Moros, who lost seven men.
The Moros' Villages were flying
red flags, meaning that they in
tended to fight to the uttermost.
Later Sultan Ptialo and a force of
natives attempted to reoccupy the
ground gained by the Americans,
but the Moros were forcibly dis
persed. Brigadier-General Davis, in com
mand at Zntiihonngn, island of Min
danao, has acknowledged the re
ceipt from Washington of instruc
tions to withdraw his troops from
Mindanao, but he urges that, ow
ing to the present state of affairs,
the withdrawal will result in the
absolute loss of American prestige
among the Moros iu Mindanao.
His orders, however, arc explicit.

Sheriff Shields and other officers
believe that Gillespey 's story is cor
rect and will hold him until the
matter is thoroughly investigated.
Gillespey today stated that there
were twenty-one men in the. con
spiracy to kill Goehel, whom thej
felt was a tyrant and usurper.
Three, including Gillespey, were
selected to do the killing and sta
tioned themselves in the garret o
the Stale Capitol building and shot
the Governor as he passed under
neath. On the breech of the gun
with which the shooting was done
were the words, "Death to the
Gillespey declared he had been a
fugitive since the shooting and had
been "hunted like a mad dog" all
through Georgia and Alabama, and
was now determined to return and
stand trial, hoping for a light sen
tence. He speaks several lan
guages and is an intelligent man,
Frank Stockton Dead.
Washington, April 20. Frank
R. Stockton, the well-known novel
ist, died suddenly here this morn
ing from paralysis immediately re
sulting from a hemorrhage of the
brain. He was a guest at the ban
quet held Wednesday night of the
Nntional Academy of Sciences,
when he was taken suddenly ami
mysteriously ill. The ailment did
not nt that time appear to be e-
rious, and for a while the sufferer 1
seemed to be improving, but
change for the worse came this
morning and death accurred at 1 1
o'clock. By his bedside when the
end came were his wife, who was a
Miss Tuttle of Virginia, and her
sister. He was 68 years of age.
The body will be taken to Phila
delphia for interment. No furthei
funeral arrangements have been
made as yet. Mr. Stockton had
spent the past winter iu New York
and had done very little literarv
work. After a visit of nearly a
mouth to Atlantic City he came to
Washington, so that he might at
tend the banquet of the scientists,
intending then to go to his beauti-
I ful home in Charleston, W. Va.

Havana, April 22. Governor-
General Wood issued an order to
day pardoning W. R. Reeves, who
was recently sentenced to ten years'
imprisonment nnd to pay n fine of
&55 5'6 for complicity iu the Cuban
postal frauds. Reeves was liberated
at once. General Wood says he
pardoned Reeves because he was a
witness for the state. The order
pardoning him did not come as a
surprise, for it has been generally
understood, ever since Estes G.
Rathbonc was first nccuscd of con
nection with the postal frauds, that
Reeves had liccn promised immun
ity by tlie military government.
This had been denied, as well as
the fact that the Government had '
been using Reeves as a witness for
the state.
The matter was referred to by
counsel for Rathbonc in summing
up their client's case. Rathbone's
lawyers declared that this promise
of immunity had influcnped Reeves
to make statements against Rath

St. Petersburg, April 20. The
news received here of the rioting .at

troops were
called out to guard against disor

This precipitated fresh trouble.
The populace resorted to window
lighting tactics, throwing firewood,
vitriol, buttles, etc., on the heads of
the soldiers. The Cossacks, on re
turning to the barracks, were stoned
and compelled to fight their way
