DICKINSON ASKS BULGARIA TO
SEND TROOPS TO LIBERATE
MISS STONE.
HAS ONLY EIGHT GUARDS
Some of the Missionary's Custodians
Known to Sympathize With Her.
Impossifcle to Come to Terms With
the BrigandsBelieved They Will
Not Hcirm Their Captives Even if
Soldiers Are Sent After Them.
Sofia, Nov. 20.It is reported that
Mr. Dickinson, the United States dip
lomatic agent kere has informed the
government of Bulgaria that the ab
ductors of Miss Ellen M. Stone and
Mme. Tsilka, with their captives, are
concealed in a defile of the Belleritza
mountains, near Smotch, district of
Dubnitza, and has requested that
troops be sent to surround the place
and liberate the captives. Both Mr.
Dickinson and the Bulgarian foreign
office decline to confirm or deny this
report. Nevertheless it is believed
that Mr. Dickinson, persuaded of the
'impossibility of coming to terms with
the brigands and relying upon his be
lief that they will not "harm their cap
tives if the troops are employed
against them, has, after consulting
with Washington, decided upon this
move. Only eight bandits now guard
Miss Stone and some of these are
known to sympathize with her. About
a fortnight ago Mr. Dickinson ap
proached the foreign office and pro
posed this same plan, but its carry
ing out was abandoned because of the
uncertainty of the location cf the ban
dits.
PROPOSES JOINT ACTION.
McKinley Memorial Arch Association
Declines to Suspend Operations.
Washington, Nov. 20.The William
McKinley National Memorial Arch as
sociation having received from the as
sociation for the erection of a McKin
ley monument at Canton, O., a request
that it suspend its appeal to the public
for contributions until the fund deemed
necessary for the erection and main
tenance of the Canton monument was
seemed, has determined that it would
be impiacticable to do so because the
long, indefinite delay ^.involved would
mean the defeat of its purpose. It is
statect, howe\er, that in its desire to
work in harmony with the association
for the erection of the monument, be
lieving that both memorials should be
and could be erected by popular sub
scription, it has through its executive
committee telegraphed to President
Day and Vice President Hanna asking
them to lay before the executive com
mittee of the Canton monument as
sociation at its meeting in Cleveland
on Thursday a proposition for joint
action by the two commissions in the
collection of funds and for their dis
tnbution on an agreed basis. The
details of the proposition ihave been
mailed in a letter written on behalf cf
the executi\e committee bv Secretary
Gage, treasurer cf the William Mc
Kinley National Memorial Arch as
sociation. Picmpt action is asked by
the latter association in order that
the national movement for a national
McKinley memorial at the national
capital may not be endangered by
delay
SKATE INTO AN AIR HOLE.
Three Young People at Duluth Find a
Watery Grave.
Duluth, Nov. 20.Miss Belle Woods,
aged 25, Charles P. Vallencey, aged
26, and Stanley MeLeod, aged 24,
skated into an air hole in the St.
Louis bay about 10 p. m., and were
drowned. The three were friends and
were skating together and did not see
the hole until too late. Efforts were
made to save them by the few persons
in the vicinity, but the icy water
cramped the unfortunates and they
sank from sight within a few moments.
Vallencey was a clerk in the Mar
shall, Wells Hardware company, the
young woman worked for the same
concern, and MeLeod was a clerk. It.
is said he and Miss Woods were en
gaged to be married. The bodies have
not vet been recovered.
GOOD FOR ONE YEAR.
Tin Plate Woikers Reject the Three
Year Clause in the Scale.
Pittsburg, Nov. 20.The tin plate
workers of the Amalgamated associa
tion have voted unanimously against
the proposition of the late strike set
tlement to have their scale hold for
thiee yeass. The officers of the Amer
ican Tin Plate company in New York
have been notified of the decision and
the scale will therefore terminate with
in one year. The unanimous decision
of the subject shows the purpose of
the men of the recognized union mills
to stand up with their brother mem
bers in the mills made non-union by
the strike settlement. The tin plate
workers are satisfied with the scale
wage provided for and would be will
ing to have it continued for three
years but are averse to the restrictions
pieced upon organization.

DRUNKENNESS CHARGED.
Meade CourVnartial in Session at the
Brooklyn Navyyard.
New York, Nov. 20..Colonel Rob
ert L. Meade, the commanding officer
of the marine barracks at the Brook
lyn navyyard, faced a courtmartial
during the day in the paymaster's
building at the yard on charges pre
ferred against ihim by Major C. H.
Lauchheimer and Colonel L. F. Denny.
The officer is accused of drunkenness
while on duty and scandalous conduct.
The president of the court is Rear Ad
miral George W. Sumner, and the
judge advocate is Lieutenant A. P.
Niblack.
Only two witnesses were examined,
the first being Colonel L. F. Denny,
one of the two complainants, wuo
made a direct charge of intoxication
and unbecoming conduct against Colo
nel Meade. In his testimony he said
that on March 18, April 30 and July
18, of this year, while on a tour cf
inspection of the marine barracks, he,
in. company with Mr. vVilliam A. Bor
ing of Boring & Tilton, architects, had
come in contact with Colonel Meade,
who, he said, was inebriated in an
extent to drunkenness and that he
was incapable of performing his du
ties as an officer. Architect Boring,
the other witness, fully substantiated
Colonel Denny's testimony.
EDUCATION IN PORTO RICO.
But Half of Those Desiring to Attend
School Can Be Accommodated.
Philadelphia, Nov. 20.Dr. M. G.
Brumbaugh, commissioner of educa
tion from tbe United States to Porto
Rico, has arrived in this city. He will
leave for Washington at once for a
conference with President Roosevelt.
There is tremendous interest, he said,
throughout Porto Rico in educational
progress. He hasi about finished the
work of school organization there. Fif
teen months ago there were 790
schools and 23,000 scholars in the
island, now there are 1,000 schools,
with 50,000 children in attendance.
These figures, Dr. Brumbaugh said,
would immediately be increased to
100,000 if there were facilities to ac
commodate that number.
DESTINED FOR THE BOERS.
British Steamer Detained for Carrying
Contraband of War.
London, Nov. 20.The government
has caused the detention of a British
steamer which was fitting out, osten
sibly for a pleasure cruise, at Victoria
docks, on the ground that the vessel
was laden with contraband of war
destined for the Boers.
A searchlight fixed to the steamer's
mast brought her under suspicion and
it is said the subsequent search dis
closed four field guns, quantities of
raw material for the manufacture of
powder, and that the vessel was fitted
up inside to accommodate from 500
to 600 men. The captain of the
steamer says his instructions from his
employers directed him to call at
Hamburg after leaving the Thames.
RUN ON THE WRONG BANK.
Misunderstanding Causes a Tacoma
Institution to Close Its Doors.
Tacoma, Was'h Nov. 20.The Met
ropolitan bank, P. V. Caesar, presi
dent, has closed its doors after stand
ing against a run since Monday. The
run began as the result of a misunder
standing, the small depositors believ
ing that a suit field Friday against the
receiver of the Metropolitan Savings
bank, which failed five days ago, had
something to do with the present Met
ropolitan bank. About $40,000 was
withdrawn and the bank applied for
a receiver. The Metropolitan's total
deposits are about $500,000. The fail
ure is due entirely to the misunder
standing,
FINCH IS CRITICISED.
Said He Refused to Take Part in Mc*
Kin ley Services.
Washington, Nov. 20.Mr. William
E. Finch of.La Crosse, Wis., United
States minister to Uruguay, has been
made the object of a complaint filed at
the state department. It is alleged
that he refused to take part in McKin
ley memorial exercises, held at Monte
video, at which Consul Swaim pre
sided. It appears that some jealousy
developed between the consul and the
minister, and the latter complained
that the programme was mot suitable
and cut the affair.
Too Many Bosses in the Union.
Chicago, Nov. 20.Because of the
preponderance of "bosses," or employ
ers, in the National Teamster's union,
the Chicago branch of the union has
withdrawn from the national body and
taken out incorporation papers under
the laws of the state of Illinois. About
3,500 teamsters have membership in
the local union. It is claimed the
secession movement from the national
union will extend to all of Illinois and
to every city of importance in the
nation.
Quiet in Hopkins County, Ky.
Earlinglon, Ky., Nov. 20.Quiet pre
vails in Hopkins county, and from all
indications there will be no trouble
for several days at least, especially if
the troops stay here. The second
death due to Sunday morning's battle
occurred during the day. Morton
Bush, who was shot in the right arm
and lung, was the victim. The wound
ed union man, George Gouch, who is
held a prisoner 'here, is still alive.
Internal Revenue Receipts.
Washington, Nov. 20.The annual
report of the commissioner of internal
revenue shows- that the total receipts
for the year ended June 30, 1901, were
$306,871,669, or $11,555,561 in excess
of th* estimates, about the same
amount in excess of the receipts *or
the year ended June 30, 1900, and
$33,000,000 in excess of the receipts
for 1S99.
The Ella Is Safe.
Halifax, N. S., Nov. 20.The report
generally circulated Sunday that the
iteamer Ella had been wrecked on'the
coast of Newfoundland proves to be
incorrect. The report was first brought
to Louisburg, C. B., 'by a tugboat and
was accepted without question. The
Ella, however, is known to have passed
out from Quebec on Sunday and is
safe.
IS NOT APPREHENSIVE
SECRETARY GAGE THINKS THAT
GOLD SHIPMENTS WILL NOT
LAST LONG.
THE MOVEMENT IS NATURAL
Demand for Money Is Quite General
estConsiderable Withdrawals Will
Raise Rates at Home and Make For-
eign Shipments Unprofitable.
Washington, Nov. 20.Treasury of
ficials feel no apprehension whatever
on account of the exportations of
gold. Secretary Gage said that he
would not make at this time any
statement in regard to the matter but
it is known that he regards the ship
ments as a natural movement in view
of the qu#e general demand for
money in Europe, and that he believes
there is nothing in the situation to
cause the least uneasiness. On the
contrary, treasury officials say that
the business affairs of Europe within
the past few years have become so
intimately connected with qur own
that a monetary stringency o^r dis
turbance of any character there should
be deplored and, if possible, relieved
for the common good. At this time
there is an unusual demand for money
in several European financial centers,
and it is to be expected, it is said!
that United States investors would
take advantage of the increased inter
est rates and ship their funds to the
best market. The officials do not be
lieve, however, that the shipments
will assume large proportions, espe
cially as any considerable withdrawals
would so increase rates at home as to
make foreign shipments unprofitable.
TO EXPEDITE BUSINESS.
British Government's Scheme to Over
come Obstruction in Parliament.
London, lyov. 20.It is understood
that the British government intends
to propose a reform of the procedure
of parliament to overcome obstruction.
The scheme will suggest that the
house assemble at 2:30 p. m. instead
of 4, that government business be
taken first, that an adjournment from
7:30 until 9 be taken for dinner, that
questions then be taken up and or
dinary business be carried on until
midnight.
Under the existing system questions
form the first business of the house
of commons and give rise to much
obstruction.
It will also be proposed that esti
mates be first considered by a strong
committee, representing all sections of
the house, in Whose proceedings the
duration of speeches Would be limited.
and that the existing cumbrous method
of taking divisions be superceded bj
the self-registering vote machinery
used in most continental legislatures
Under the new scheme disorderly
members would be more sternly pun
ished for the first offense and sus
pended for a month, with increasing
punishment for renewed offenses, and
offenders would be compelled to apol
ogize before being permitted to return
to parliament.
CITY COUNCIL ENJOINED.
Culmination of the Burlington-North
western Fight at Omaha.
Omaha, Neb., Nov. 20.The fight
between the Burlington and North
western roads for trackage into the
wholesale district culminated in the
city council being served with a tem
porary injunction order from Judge
Slabaugh, in the district court, re
straining it from passing an ordinance
permitting the Northwestern to run its
tracks on Eighth street.
The city council at a general com
mittee meeting Monday decided that
the Northwestern should be permitted
to use the track it had already laid on
Eighth Street and that it should also
be allowed to put in a crossing at the
intersection of the Burlington tracks,
and an ordinance vacating part of the
stree't for that purpose was to have
been passed. The Burlington people
at once went into the district court
and secured a restraining order.
MAY ASK AMERICAN HELP.
Canadian Shippers Cannot Fill Con
tracts on Account of Storm.
Ottawa, Ont., Nov. 20.The Cana
dian shippers have reported to the
Dominion government that, owing to
the exceptionally bad weather on the
upper lakes during the 'past two weeks
every Canadian boat ha^ lost at least
one trip. This reduces their tonnage
for grain from Fort William to Cana
dian ports by at least 1,500,000 bushels
and seriously 'hampers them in filling
contracts for wheat which they have
sold or contracted for with the rail
ways, and every grain shipper will
have to default on his contracts. They
have therefore suggested giving Amer
ican boats the privilege of carrying
grain from Fort William to the Cana
dian ports for the remainder of the
season. The matter will come before
the cabinet at on.ee.
Bubonic Plague at Cape Town.
Norfolk, W. Va., Nov. 20.The Brit
ish steamer Monmouth, Captain Troop,
which has arrived her direct from
Cape Town, South Africa, reports the
existence of over 800 cases of bubonic
plague the vicinity of Cape Town
when she left that port. Up to the
time she sailed some 380 deaths from
the plague had occurred.
Railroads Reduce Rates.
Chicago, Nov. 20.A reduction of

An agreement to this effect has been
made by the general passenger agents
of the Chicago-St. Paul lines.

The Anti-Chamberlain Movement
Spreading in Germany.
Berlin, Nov. 20.The anti-Chamber
lain movement in Germany is spread
ing. In spite of the remonstrance is
sued officially by the DeutisCher Krieg
erbund, the .Society of Veterans of
Berlin held a large and enthusiastic
meeting of this kind in which the ut
terances of Mr. Chamberlain at Edin
burgh were heartily denounced.
Other soldiers' anti-Chamberlain
meetings are to be held at Cologne,
Mulheim, Brunswick, Bonn, Celle, etc.,
and students' meetings of a like char
acter will be held at Bremen, Wurze
burg, Leipzic, Halle and Munich, while
popular meetings are announced in
Beecham and Brunswick and other
places.
Refcu.ng to these matters, The
Post, speaking semi-officially, says the
government sees no reason to identify
itself with the vehement utterances at
irresponsible meetings, or to take ac
tion against Mr. Chamberlain's accu
sations concerning the German sol
diers, since the latter's words at Edin
burgh were nothing more than the
private statement of the British states
man.
But if the matter is broached in the
reichstag, The Post continues, matters
will assume an entirely different
course.
In this event the government would
find occasion to express itself befit
tingly.
ROGERS IS NONCOMMITTAL.
Washington's Governor Refuses to
Discuss Extra Session Question.
Seattle, Wash., Nov. 20.A dispatch
to The Post-Intelligencer from Olym
pia says: 'Regarding the dispatch sent
out from Tacoma stating that Gov
ernor Rogers was contemplating call
ing an extra session of the legislature
to prevent the combination of the
Great Northern and Northern Pacific
interests in this state, the governor
has been noncommittal. He refuses
to discus's the question of an extra
session at all and though he has re
ceived several telegrams from news
papers outside the state requesting
his opinion on the railroad move, his
replies have been very general in
character. Men close in touch with
the governor think an extra session
extremely improbable.
MET A PECULIAR DEATH.
Indiana Boy Uses an Empty Nitro
glycerin Can for a Drum.
Alexandria, Ind., Nov. 20 Charlie
Ott, a 13-year-old boy, was blown to
atoms in a peculiar manner. He found
a tin nitroglycerin can in the rear of
his home, and tying it about his waist.
he proceeded to beat a tattoo on the
improvised drum. A terrible explo
sion, which shook the city, followed.
Neighbors who rushed to the scene
found the mangled remains of the lit
tle fellow strewn all over the yard.
Both arms and legs of the boy were
blown off and the front part of his
head was torn away. The can was
left on the spot by well-shooters, who
supposed that not enough of the dead
ly explosive remained to be dangerous.

of Superintendent.
New York, Nov. 20.Nearly 800
men, comprising the entire force of
brakemen, freight handlers and
switchmen of the New York division
of the New York, New Haven and
Hartford railroad, have gone on strike.
The reputed cause of the strike is the
discharge of the assistant superin
tendent, Robert Thurbush of the Mott
Haven yards. The strike also mate
rially affects the tugboat and float
system of the railroads in this city.
John H. Thurbush, general yard
master, and a brother of R. Thurbush,
said he did not know the cause of his
brother's dismissal.

The Officers Pursuing Mathis Send for
Larger Posse.
Oxford, Miss., Nov. 20.The officers
who are pursuing Mathis, the alleged
illicit distiller, who is charged with
murdering two deputy United States
marshals Sunday, haive sent a mes
senger to Oxiford asking for a posse
of 35 or more armed citizens to assist
in the capture of the fugitive. The
officers say they have him surrounded
in a swamp, but before making an at
tack they desire reinforcements. A
posse hss just left for the scene and a
battle is expected before morning.
The swamp in which Mathis is hiding
is 20 miles from Oxford.
An American Building for London.
London, Nov. 20.An Anglo-Amer
ican syndicate, including Sir Charles
Rivers Wilson, the Earl of Kintore,
Earl Grey, F. B. Ellser of New York,
George Cornwallis-West and others,
'has applied to the London county
council for a lease for 999 years of a
site on the north side of the Strand
with a frontage of 750 feet and with
still longer frontage on the new
streets debouching on the Strand for
the erection of an office building on
American lines. The structure, which
will cost 2,000,000, will be the largest
and handsomest of its kind in the
world.

jPROBABLY FATAL TO TWO
Non-Union Men Set Upon by March-
ersMine Foreman and His Family
I Roughly HandledUnion Men Say
i They Will Force the Colliery to
Unionize or Close UpAnother Raid
I Is Expected.
1 Vincennes, Ind., Nov. 20.Four hun
dred union coal miners from Washing
ton, Cannelburg, Petersburg, Prince
ton and Montgomery arrived heVe at
an early hour and at 5 o'clock made an
attack upon the non-union miners em
ployed at the Prospect Hill mines,
near this city. As a result two men
are fatally hurt and a half dozen more
are seriously injured. The union
miners formed at the Union station
and marched to the mines. Just as
the men of the day shift were going
on duty they were attaceked and re
ceived horrible punishment. The
union men asked for the foreman,
William Scott, and when told that he
was bed said: "All right, we will
get him," and started after him. In
the melee that followed Scott and his
family defended themselves as best
they could, but were powerless.
Scott was badly beaten about the
head and face, and W. P. Collins, an
attorney of Washington, a brother-in
law of Scott, sustained injuries that
may prove fatal. He had a rib broken
and an eye badly injured. Henry
Hannery, a miner, was so badly beaten
bv the men that he had to be removed
to the city, where he could be given
medical attention, and his injuries are
such that he may die. Mrs. Scott was
slapped the face and when she re
sented the attack, it is alleged that
one of the men drew a gun and told
tie he
Wouid Make Short Work of Her
if she persisted her foolishness
Otis Scott, the 15-year-old son, was
knocked down, as was also the 10-
year-old daughter of Scott
Others that suffered at the visitors'
hands were Robert McDaniels, John
Scott and Kenner Mars. All are badly
bruised about the head and face. It
is said there that no word was spoken
to Scott until the fight began In the
fight the stove was knocked over and
a big hole was burned in the floor.
Some cf the miners, however, picked
up the stove and extinguished the fire.
The house was badly damaged. Al
most every window was broken and
one of the doors was battered down.
Only 40 men are employed and the
min* is run on the co-operative plan
and independently. The operators
claim that they cannot pay the union
scale and run but say they pay the
highest price possible, and in some
instances pay more than scale prices.
They claim to mine from 50 to 60 tons
a dav, and thereby are able to give
a few men employment. There is
great confusion over the attack and
another raid is expected. The union
miners yay they will force the mine
to unionize or close up, but one of the
two must be done. Further trouble
is anticipated.
WERE HORRIBLY MUTILATED.
Father, Mother and Child Murdered
Near Los Angeles, Cal.
Los Angeles, Cal., Nov. 20.The
dead bodies of A. P. Wilcox, wife and
2-year-old son were found in their
home at Downey, 12 miles from this
city, during the day. All the bodies
were horribly mutilated and the
bloody condition of the premises in
dicated that the murderer or murder
ers had met with a fierce resistance.
Wilcox and ihis family had been shot
and then literally cut to pieces with a
knife
The crime was discovered when a
neighbor called at the house and found
the place evidently abandoned. On
forcing open the door he found the
dead bodies of the murdered family
stretched out on the floor. The woman
had been shot while carrying a plate
from the stove to the table. The baby
lay in the middle of the room, while
the disemboweled body of the father
was stretched near the door. There is
no clue to the murderers.
MUST GET IN THE BAND WAGON.
Jules Siegfried Warns Frenchmen Re
garding American Supremacy.
Paris, Nov 20M Jules Siegfried
lectured at the Musee Social on his
recent tour in America, repeating in
extended form the opinions already
expressed in the interview cabled to
the Associated Press last July.
He predicted that the present cen
tury would see the United States the
greatest and most powerful commer
cial and industrial nation in the world.
"If France is wise," he said, "she will
not delay to take advantage of Amer
ica's traditional friendship in order to
secure the means by a give and take
policy, to get a fair share of this vast,
unlimited and ever increasing field of
commercial enterprise, beyond the At
lantic."

manner as to make Honolulu practi
cal impregnable. The members of
the board explored the coast from
Koko head to a point below Pearl
harbor and some 12 s-tations for bat
teries have been settled upon, it is
stated. There is ali.o to be one central
artillery station at some commanding
point.
The other side ot the- island, it is
thought, does not need much attention
The approach to Honolulu from any
landing except on the south bide be
tween the points which were the limits
of the board's surveys, are mountain
passes, easily guarded and defended
