BUILDS SHIPS FOR AMERICA.
Sir Christopher Furness Secures Con
tracts for Twelve Freighters.
New York, Dec. 4.Sir Christopher
Furness, M. P., has sailed for England,
taking with him signed contracts for
the building of 12 freight carrying
steamers of from 6,000 to 10,000 tons
dead weight capacity, the capital, near
ly $4,000,000, to be furnished by Amer
icans. Besides this, he has also made
arrangements with the Clergue
interests at Sault Ste. Marie, for the
erection of an immense shipbuilding
plant to be located at Sault Ste. Marie,
close to the junction of the "Soo"
canal and Lake Superior. Here will
be erected steel works which will cost
approximately $10,000,000, and the iron
and coal fields of Canada will furnish
the raw material.
Before sailing, Sir Christopher said
that diiring the two months he had
spent in this country he had found
why the United States manufacturer
is crowding the British producer. He
has seen here the railroad locomotives
hauling twice the load that is hauled
on the English roads, with half the ex
pense. Everything, also, he had seen
was done on the same economic scale.
Because he believes that Canada is
sure to profit by the greatness of the
United States, he has chosen to locate
his next project there. The drawback
of ice in the St. Lawrence river will be
overcame by immense ice-crushing
steamers, which will be constructed
EMPRESS IS SINCERE.
Deposing of Prince Tuan's Son Consid
ered Strong Proof.
Peking, Dec. 4.Chinese officials say
that the appointment of a new heii
apparent to the throne will be delayed
until the emperor, Kwang Su, can dis
cuss the question with leading men.
The imperial edict deposing the
former heir apparent, Chun, son oi
Prince Tuan, the author of Boxei
troubles, is generally considered as
the strongest proof yet given of the
sincerity of the empress' leaning to
wards reform. Considered with pre
vious edicts, this last one appears to
corroborate the belief among Chines*
officials that the empress sees the
error of her anti-foreign policy of re
cent years.
Yuen Shi Kai, the new viceroy oi
Ohi Li, has arrived ait Peking The
purpose of his visit is to consult with
the ministers of the foreign powers
regarding the present situation.
Prince Cbing has not seen Paul Les
sar, the Russian minister to China,
since the .former returned to Peking.

two of the foreign powers, Prince
Ghing said China would oppose Rus
sian control of Manchuria if any ol
the powers would support her in sc
doing.

wages, will he successful. The em
ployes of two of the mines were or
ganized during the day. The employes
of the Winkle-Peck mines all joined
the union and the operators notified
them they could consider themselves
discharged because they said it was
impossible to pay the union wages and
further that they did not want union
men. The operators of the Soty mine
agreed to employ union men and have
raised the price of coal to meet the
additional expense. All marching
miners have returned home.
Snow Benefits Kansas.
Topeka, Kan., Dec. 4.Some of the
dry sections of the state, especially
in Western and Northwestern Kansas,
were greatly relieved by the snow thai
fell during the day. The wheat fields

A
CUBAN DEMOCRATS ADDRESS
ANOTHER MESSAGE TO SEC-
RETARY ROOT.
INTERFERENCE INEVITABLE
Say All Members of the Central Can-
vassing Board Are Candidates for
Office and Are on Palma's Executive
CommitteePeople of the Island
Alarmed at an Attempt to Force a
President on Them.
Havana, Dec. 4.A cablegram
signed by Eusebio Hernandez, pres
ident of he Democratic party, has been
sent to Secretary of War Root. This
message says:
"The friends of General Bartolome
Maso hear with great satisfaction your
declaration that official interference
in the coming elections will not be tol
erated, but under the present arrange
ments interference is inevitable, as all
members of the central canvassing
board are candidates for office and are
also members of the executive com
mittee of Senor Tomas Estrada Palma.
One of these is the secretary of state
and other high officials are also can
didates
"Both high and low official are
openly working in the interests of
Senor Palma, who is said to have the
support of the United States govern
ment. The situation is delicate and
the Cuban people are alarmed at an al
leged attempt to force a president
upon them. They ask for a fair and
honest election."
A delegation representing General
Maso will shortly leave here for Wash
ington to submit these facts to the
administration and to suggest certain
changes to insure fair elections.
Eusebio Hernandez also represents
the coalition of the national and in
dependent Republicans.
The lower classes are enthusiastic
over the candidacy of General Maso.
Much feeling is being worked up
against the official Cuban element,
whom the Masoists claim control the
election machinery.
GETTING OLD AND WORN OUT
Croker Says He Can't Be a Political
Leader Any Longer.
New York, Dec. 4.In an interview
with Richard Croker The Evening
Post quotes the Tammany leader as
saying:
"You won't see much more leading
on my part in the future. I am getting
old and worn out and I can't be a
field horse for everybody any longer.
I admit that the leader of Tammany
Hall should stay in New York all the
year round, and I can't stay here for
more than a part of the year. If I
tried to stay here all the time I could
do no work at all. All this talk about
my being state leader and trying to
dictate in national politics is nonsense.
I am in no condition to do any kind of
leading, but of course I will always
bake deep interest in Tammany and
do the best I can."
When asked if he was training ar
body to succeed him as leader hr
plied:
"Oh, I have not come to that
and I have not planned my future,
cent that I will go to England in a
uary or February. The Tammany ex
ecutive committee will meet next
month and you may hear more of the
matter then."
WILL WAIVE PROCEEDINGS.
Railroad Merger Case to Go to Su
preme Court as Soon as- Possible.
New York, Dec. 4.-The Commercial
Advertiser prints the following:
The persons identified with the
Northern Securities company declined
to discuss the attacks which it has
been announced are to be made upqn
its validity by the governors and at
torney generals of some of the North
western states. According to some of
the directors such attacks were and
are expected and all that the persons
interested in the company will do will
be to waive all proceedings in state
or lower courts so far as possible and
expect to have the question raised as
to the company's rights carried be
fore and decided by the supreme court
of the United States as quickly as
possible.
SINKING OF ThE MAINE.
Government Asks That All Claims
Growing Out of It Be Dismissed.
Washington, Dec. 4.Counsel for
the government have presented to the
Spanish treaty claims commission a
brief in support of the motion to dis
miss the claims growing out of the
sinking of the battleship Maine. It is
contended that it was the intention
of the treaty of peace not to provide
for but to relinquish and leave the
grievance in oblivion as settled in the
tribunal of war
The brief says that the destruction
of Spanish lives and the loss of Span
ish possessions atoned for and settled
any supposed responsibility of Spain
for the destruction of the Maine with
its officers and crew.

claims began a new term during the

CAME AS FREIGHT,
German House Painter's Trip to Anrier*
ica in a Packing Case.
New York, Dec. 4.A man who was
discovered in the hold of the Ham
burg-American steamer Palatia Mon
day after having made the trip aicross
the ocean in a box, has recovered suf
ficiently to be able to establish his
identity positively. He says his name
is Johan Beck and that he lived up to
about a year ago in Budapest, Hun
gary. The lectors would not allow
him to tell all his story, but enough
was learned from him and other
sources to show that Beck was a house
painter and that he had come across
the card of an uptown hotel in this
city, the. proprietors of which have
German names. Though a stranger tc
them he wrote that he could get no
work in Germany amd was coming tc
America and hoped the hotel men
could find him something to do. Then
he fitted up a packing case, paid
freight charges on it and engaged a
carter to take it to the Hamburg piei
at a certain time He then returned
to his lodgings and boxed himself up
after he had provisioned himself with
a dozen cans of condensed milk, a "box
of primes, three dozen cakes of choco
late, coffee in bottles and some bread.
The carter called and got the box, not
knowing of its living contents, and
shipped it.
Beck declares he was in the box
until the ship reached the Hoboken
pier, a period of about 15 days. When
found he was almost dead from
hunger, cold and terror. He is re
ported to be still exceedingly weak
but the physicians hope for his re
co very.
A well known real estate owner and
horseman is said to have interested
himself in the case and to have prom
ised to give Beck work should he re
cover.
