(By Associated Press.) Del Monte, Cal., May 11.—The presi dent and his party arrived at Delmonte this morning and will remain over Sun day at this far-famed resort. "There is no flxed programme, except the visit to the Grand Army encampment at Pacific grove and a drive along the ocean front this afternoon, and two days of rest will prepare the president and his party for the ordeal they will have to undergo at San Francisco next week. Governor Nash and his p'arty and the Ohio congressional delegation also reached the Delmonte hotel this morn ing. They leave for San Francisco this afternoon. The Ohio people who are on their way to San Francisco to see the launching of the battleship Ohio are not having the lovely time they anticipated. The Ohio congressmen and Governor Nash's party have clashed over a question of precedence and harmony Is wanting. The people of California have been cor dial in their reception of the Ohio party, but naturally President McKinJey has received the most attention, and Gov. Nash and ihis party, who are traveling on a separate train, have been a little in the background. At Los Angeles it was all McKinley, and the Ohio guber natorial party felt slighted. The special bearing Gov. Nash and other Ohio people arrived here -before daybreak and joined the presidential party. The chagrin that the guberna torial, party expressed over its alleged mistreatment at Los Angeles became more intense during the trip of the last 24 hours, and broke out into open revolt here at conferences in the Hotel Del monte. The special ears bearing the Ohio con gressmen were attached to the Ohio spec ial at Los Angeles. This seemed to add to the ill-feeling of the governor's party Who complained that they had been an annexed section to the presidential party and now were given third place. The congressmen seemed equally dissatisfied with the new arrangement, and finally it was decided that the congressmen should CECIL RHODES IS AFRICAN PREMIER AMAZING REPORT FROM CAPETOWN OF HIS ELEVATION, AND THAT OF DR.

The cars of the congressmen were ac cordingly taken out of the Ohio special here and they left for San Francisco at noon while Governor Nash and party left at 2 p. m., for San Francisco. Then Col. J. D. Ellison and Willis G. Bowland who have charge of all arrangements for Gov ernor Nash and the Ohio special met a committee from San Jose and notified Chairman Miner that they would not vis it San Jose as an annex of any other party. It was then decided that the Ohio special would go from San Fran cisco to San Jose Sunday night. It was also specified that the Ohio special would leave San Jose before the presidential train arrived. This unpleasant controversy started at Los Angeles on Thursday night but the local committee would not let it precede the president's train and the time was accordingly changed and left Los Angeles at 10 a. m., Friday instead of 10 p. m., Thursday. This caused indignation. As the two trains have different routes on returning from San Francisco there will be no more trouble with railway schedules and receptions along the way but the Ohio people insist that Governor Nash shall not be ignored hereafter as they insist he has been during the past three days.

(By Associated Press.) New York, May 11.—How is Union Pa cific going to be affected by the contest now in progress for control of Northern Pacific, is a question which is being dis cussed with great interest by Wall street. If Mr. Harriman and his asso ciates succeed in their endeavor to ob tain control of Northern Pacific, the an swer to the question is comparatively Simple. By that operation the Union Pacific, through its control of Northern Pacific, would come virtually into pos session of the latter's one-half interest in the Burlington system, and the posljK tion would be materially strengthened/ If, however, it should develop, as the street seems inclined to think will be the case, that Mr. Morgan and Mr. Hill have obtained a clear majority of the Northern Pacific stocks, a situation will be created which, in the present temper of the opposing forces, is thought by Wall street to be one of much gravity For the Burlington control gives the Great Northern and the Northern Pa cific, both paralleling the Union Pacific on the north, an outlet of thpir own from Minneapolis and St. Paul to Chicago, and gives the Northern Pacific also a direct outlet from the Pacific coast to Kansas City, Omaha and other points in . the Union Pacific territory. The St. Paul and Northwestern roads also find their interests menaced by the Burlington deal, and these companies, which are in harmony with the Union English Newspaper Prophets Now Say " I Told You So," in Speaking of American Stock Panic. (By Associated Press.) New York, May 11.—British half-penny journalism now has a more congenial American theme, says the Tribune's Lon don correspondent, than mercantile com petition or a multi-millionaire's shipping raid. The incidents of the speculation in Wall street are entertaining reading and the moral is drawn that the American gambling spirit courts disaster by sheer excess of recklessness. . Unwillingness of speculators in Lon4 don to join in the American game is cited as convincing proof of English con servatism and sobriety of judgment.

Great Falls, May 11.—In its prepara tions to get in good training for the next campaign, the Young Men's Demo cratic club of this city is importing one of the best known pugilists of the state, "Kid" Oglesby of Helena, who will go on the stage May 18 for a 20-round match with Jack Wode, of Great Falls. It is thought the club members will be able to learn much in the way of ducks, swings, jabs and other ring 'mysteries. It is not openly asserted that these methods are to be used in campaign wark, but from the enthusiasm with which the club took up the proposition it is generally understood that the club members are fitting themselves for ef fective work at the polls. It is recognized in the club's select circles as the legitimate provincet of a political club to take up athletic train ing, especially such as tends to success in a hard fought battle at the polls. Nothing, they say, is so conducive to a winning ticket as the fact that cam paigners can thrash the stuffing out of a political antagonist. These muscular disciples of Thomas Jefferson are in a fair way to make Cascade county Solid ly democratic, and great enthusiasm marks the coming opening of their act ive campaign. HAWAIIANS MUST SETTLE IT McKinley Will Taka Vo Notice , of Petition to Remove ProakWnt Solo From Office. (By Associated Press.) Washington, May 11.—Officials who are acquainted with the president's view» Pacific, are said to be likely to make common cause with the latter in case it is excluded from participation in control of the Burlington. General War in Prospect. It remains to be seen whether or not tlie present contest will be allowed to develop into a general fight all along the line, a struggle which, it is felt by care ful observers, would be destructive in the extreme. Such a conflict, it is point ed out, would not only embrace the transcontinental lines and the roads be tween the Mississippi and the Rockies, but might also spread to the eastern territory. In view of the vast possibilities of less and disaster resulting from an open breach between Mr. Morgan and the other powerful interests referred '"to, however, involving the complete aban donment of the "community of interest" principle, it is not believed among the best posted men in the financial district that the Union Pacific will be shut out from participation in some form qmï to some degree in the Burlington deal, whatever be the outcome of the battle or actual control of the Northern Pa cific. "Mow will the fight over Northern Pacific affect the Union Pacific Inter ests'?" Russell Sage was asked last night. "I think Union Pacific will not be hurt, and I think its stock will be mort valu able later on than it is now," he replied. and predicted the break in the market lung before it came. Perhaps the best "tips" for the Ameri can market were provided by Mr. La bouchere's Truth, and those who heeded him profited by the rise in American se curities, but sold out prematurely. Stories are told of some fortunate drives made in American and Canadian Pacific stocks, but the majority of the speculators stayed out, and when the ac tivity of the American market was sus pended wagged their heads and said that they had foreseen the inevitable collapse. These brokers were surprised by the dis patches just received indicating a greatly improved feeling in the American mar ket and leader writers were convinced that they had been premature in playing to the English gallery. regarding the legislative situation In Hawaii, do not believe he will lie in dined to take notice of the memorial from the Hawaiian legislature asking for Governor Dole's removal.

RUSSIA MUL CTS AN AMERICAN Must Fay for Prematurely Leaving Czar's Army, or See His Aged Father Lose His Home. (By Associated Press.) St. Paul, May 11.—L. D. Horne, a natur alized citizen and a member of a whole sale firm in this city, has been forced by tile Russian government, of which coun try he is a native, to pay a fine of 600 rou bles, amounting to <350. Mr. Horne received notice several months ago from Russia that the fine had been imposed because he did not serve his time in the Russian army. Through the American minister at St. Petersburg he arbitrated the matter, claiming ex emption because of his American citizen ship. He offered to go to Russia in per son, but the American minister informed him that it would be exceedingly diffi cult to secure his release from the arrest which would surely follow. The Russian government attached the homestead of Mr. Horne's parents at Niesen, Northern Russia, to secure pay ment of the fine. Mr. Horne"s parents are aged, and their only property is their sobs. To prevent them from being turn ed out, Horne paid his fine. QUIET THtINALL STREET FEIER SPECULATORS NEED THE TIME TO STRAIGHTEN UP THEIR BOOKS, DEMORALIZED BY THE WEEK'S PLUNGING GREAT UNION AND NORTHERN PACIFIC DEALS STILL IN THE DARK. (By Associated Press.) New York, May 11.—With both the stock exchange and the consolidated ex change closed today, and with practical ly nothing doing on the curb, Wall street was very quiet. Although the exchanges were not open for business, nil of t> larger brokerage houses had their clerks at work straightening out the accounts of speculators and putting their books in order. In the rush days from Mon day to Friday none of the usual making out of customers' statements was done, and it probably will be late tomorrow before the balancing of accounts will be finished. Many speculators went downtown to await the bank statement and to get the London quotations for American securi ties. At 2 p. m. London's price gener ally showed advances as compared with the close at New York yesterday, the extreme rise being 18 points in Northern Pacific. Other stocks generally were up, but United States steel common was 3-8 and the preferred 1-2 lower. Illinois showed a decline of 1 1-4. All Interest in the financial world remains aYtsorbed in the great contest for the control of Northern Pacific and the rivalries that have been caused by that battle. Heavy buying in Union Pacific yester day provoked much comment, and today the "street" was wondering whether tne fight of the railway giants was to be transferred to that stock again. The high price for Northern Pacific in Lon don today was taken by many as indi cating that buying for the control of the property was still going on wnerever the seller had the stock to deliver. It was learned today also that at the time Kuhn, Loeb & Co. were settling with shorts yesterday at $150 a Share, they were paying the same price over the counter to all who offered the securities for instant delivery. A representative of the Harriman syn dicate made the following statement to day : "In spite of all that may be said and printed to the contrary we - stand on our assertion of the past few days, that we believe possession of Northern Pa SULTAN DEFIES THE WHOLE WOOED CHARGES THE AMBASSADORS WITH SMUGGLING IN TURKEY.

Washington, May 11—'Three hundred thousand Germans have located in Bra zil, according to a report received at the state department from Consul General Eugene Seegur stationed at Rio Janeiro. He was directed last summer to submit a report regarding the foreign population in Brazil. His report shows the number (H foreigners in Brazil as follows: Ital ians 400,000; Portuguese 400,000; Germans, 300,000; Spanish 100,000; Poles 80,000; French 10,000; English 5,000; North Amer icans 5,000; other nationalities 100,000. One of the best of the foreign settle ments of Brazil, Mr. Seegur says, is that of the Germans at Bluemanau, in the state of Santa Catharina. In spite of lib eral inducements, this colony received only 10,000 immigrants during the last fifty years. Under the monarchy Mr. Seegur reports, strong efforts were made by the national government to obtain colonists from Europe, especially from Germany. It cannot be said that these efforts were conspicuously successful. The German government prohibited im migration to Brazil until 1S96, when the prohibition was removed- Besides those in the province of Santa Catharina, there are many German subjects in Rio Grande do Sul. Mr. Seegur closes his report by saying that as a rule only a very small percentage of the colonists, oone or two per cent, preserve their original nation ality.

I am certainly not going to Home for the specific purpose of discussing church conditions in the Philippines." The cardinal said that he was worn out and was seeking a long sea voyage. He probably will not return until the end of summer. cific is now held by Kuhn, Loeb & Company. It may take some time to prove this and it is even possible that some legal trick may be devised to wrest control from us. At this time, however, there is no doubt in our minds that we are in power. As far as the Burlington deal goes, that is only indi rectly involved in the Northern Pacific controversy and we believe it will go through in due time." At the banking house of J. P Morgan & Company, no statement regarding Northern Pacific could be obtained. Mr. Hill reported to the new bureau that there was no truth in the news to the effect that he and J. Pierpont Mor gan desired to secure conti ol of Union Pacific. "There is nothing in that story," said Mr. Hill.

STARS AS STOVES HELP HEAT THE WORLD, ACCORD ING TO FIGURES. MEASURE THEIR HEAT RAYS Astronomers Decide That the Far-off Arbs Send in Their Little Packages of Warmth—Delicate Instruments Necessary in Making the Calcula tions—Triumph of Star Gazers. (By Associated Press.) Chicago, May 11.—Whether the stars, millions of miies away, Bend to the earth's surface any heat along with their rays of light, a question which has long puz zled astronomers, has been finally solved. The heat from these far oft bodies has not only been detected but measured. It has been matured by one of the most del icate and sensitive astronomical instru ments ever made—an instrument capable of measuring heat of a candle a mile away. The credit for solving the problem and for constructing this delicate instrument belongs to Prof. E. F. Nichols of Dart mouth. The experiments, were, however, performed at the Yerkes observatory of the University of Chicago, where Prof. Nichols spent two of his summer van tions. The results obtained from tn.-.-a experiments have just been carefully re viewed and computed and sent to Prof. George E. Hale, director of the o'.se va tory. Appreciable Star Heat. Prof. Nichols' experiments at the Yerkes observatory have at first proved beyond a doubt that ihe pi irmts and some of the fixed stars send an appreciable quantity of heat to the earth. The quan tity. however, is so minute that the won der is that an instrument could be made sensitive enough to detect it. Prof. Nichols was assisted :n tills valu able work bv Prof. Charlie K. St. John of Oberlin college, and A. L. Cotton, tor meriy assistant at the Lick observatory.
