THE TEST OF .THE INK. ,
Experts in the Davis Will Case Say e
it Was Written With Log- o
wood Ink.
In the Test of the Signatures Dif- i
ferent Results Are Attained
by Tolman.
The Case Is Closed and Now the Arga- V
meants Will Begi--The Trial of
the Penrese nuspects. e
e
BuiTrT. Sept. 1.-[Special,]-A climax
was reached in the Davis will case to-day,
when the experts tested the ink on the con
tested will to prove whether it was nigro
cine or logwood, by the use of hydrochloric t
sold. This was acording to the agreement I
of the proponents and contestants. The
contestants contended throughout the trial
that the ink used on the will was nigrooine,
while the experts of the proponents claimed
the ink was composed of logwood. In case
the ink's basis was the latter, the acid
would cause it to turn a light red, while if
of nigrooine. the application of acid would
cause no change in color. The test was
made before the court, and the color of the
writing where the acid was applied turned
to a reddish tint. The test was made by
Profs. Hodges, of Boston, and Tolman,
of New York. Hodges, in answer
to a Question by the court,
stated that he was convinced i
that the ink was logwood. When the acid
r was applied to the signatures a slight dif
ference in the change caused was observed.
Prof. Tolman, for the contestants, attrib
uted this to the age of the writing, claim
ing that the darker shade in the signature
of Sconce was proof that the writing was
t recently made. This test was the close of
s the testimony of the proponents. Argu
e ments will be commenced to-morrow, as
e both sides have announced their willing
w ness to offer no further evidence. The
a other evidence offered during the day was
that of witnesses for proponents, tending
1 to prove the genuineness of the signatures
to the document.
The Penrose Case.
BrrTTr, Sent. 1.--[Special.--In the Pen
rose case to day J. L. Davis was recalled by
n the prosecution and questioned further as
I- to his experience while in Witness Franok's
o company. He stated the third person with
i- them was a Mrs. Clark, and they were
y standing in front of Clark's residence. He
. recited the conversation between Frauck
I. and Witness Allen, substantially the same
as testified on Saturday last. This testi
s- mony caused some hot words between At
a torney Haldron and Campbell, for the
prosecution and defense !respectively, in
'which the lie was passed and the court in
t terfered, preventing what might have been
- a sensational scene.
d W. W. Walsworth, manager of the Butte
5 department of the Anaconda Standard, was
called and said on the night of the murder
he had seen Hickey and Deeney together at
the workingmen's mass meeting. He had
e a convelsation with them. He could not
" remember how Deeney was dressed.
ir Officer Waller was called to the
e stand and told of his talk
e- with O'Donnell, in which he said, "Hello,

Werld's Fair People WIltin to Cut Their T
lalries Down.
Camcioo. Sept. 1.-The national board of
commissioners of the World's fair, and also Ti
th lady managers, will meet to-morrow.
One matter to come before the commission
will be the question how to avoid the de
ficlt of about $21,000 in the appropriation
So0 the year. Probably this will be aecom
plished by outting down salaries. Presi
deat Palmer has already ar'eed to give up A
his $5,000 salary, and Director General
Davis voluntarily submits to a ent of $,0110.
Twelve thousand more will be raved by
dispensing with the April meeting.

finance committee is considering the
proposition to ask congress to make the T
fair managerment a loan of $5,000,000, tak
ing a mortgage on the receipts. In any
event, as the government has provided for
the giving of medals and juries of award,
eo ogrers will be asked to appropriate
enugh money for medals and .uries, from
$ 000,000 to $7.000,000. Traffic Manager

LOOTED BY DESERTERS. c
The Town of Coronel Suffers From the 1
Acts of Rioters,
Nyw YORK, Sept. 2.-The Herald this t
morning publishes this dispatch: Valpa- t
raiso, Chili.-Exciting news was brought 1
to-day from the south by a Straits steamer,
which came up from Talcahoano. Two reg
iments of government troops taken to
that port recently from Coquimbo by
the transport imieriale, revolted when they
heard of the defeat of the Balmaceuists at
Piacllla last Friday. They shot to death all
their officers and disbanded. Nearly 4.000
coal'miners joined ahem, and together they
have practically taken possession of the
town of Coronel on the coast, about twenty
fivemiles south of Conception. All sorts of I
excesses have been committed by them.
Houses and stores have been sacked and
burned. The slightest protest against their
actions is met by rifle shots. Women have
been abused. Some outrages were com- 1
mitted also in Conception and Taucahuano,
bI ut the force at the disposal of the an
thorities there have been sufficient to
save., them from the fate which has
overtaken the 6.000 people of Coronel. As
soon as the news was received here this
morning the German war ship Sophie and
the British gun boat Daphne were ordered
to go at once to Coronel and protect the
interests of the foreign residents there.
Government officials here have also taken
steps to beat the mob into submission.
THURSTON TELLS HIS STORY.
He Says the Hawaiians Are Anaxious for
Annexation.
·Ca croo, Sept. 1.-Hon. L. S. Thurston, of
Honolulu, who is in this city, said to a re
- porter to-night that the McKinley bill had
e had tee effect of uniting the native and for
t eign population of Hawaii upon the
- subject of annexation. He has just re
1 ceived one of the native newspapers, which
advocates the formation of a republic or
e immediate annexation to theUnited States.
This fact is remarkable, as it the first time
s in Hawaiian history that the natives have
r publicly favored such a thing. While
it t is true they are weary
3 of monarchy, yet nothing but the blow at
t Hawaii's sugar industry could have brought
them to favor annexation. The hlope of
the planters there is that the president will
e next year exercise the power given him to
k place a duty again upon the beet sugar
from such countries as have not recipro
' cated with the necessary free entries. Thia
would relieve the burden, but at any rate
- the Hawaiians are preparing to negotiate
- with the United States for free trade.
a Thurston says now that the sugar industry
Sis no longer a grent source of income; it is
intended to bring the islands prominently
a before the world as a land for tourists.
REDEEMING THE BONDS.
There Are Yet About Twenty Millions of
the Four andl a Half Per Cents. Out.
I WA.s.cnua , Sept. 1.-The amount of
s four and a half per cent, bonds continued
I at two per cent, to-day was $1860,00. mak
a ing the total to date $23,408,550. There are
I also about $500,000 more in process of con
r tinuance. 'The interest on the ontstanding
four and a half per cents will cease to-mor
row, after which date the department will
redeem all that are presented for that pur
e pose. A circular, however, will be issued
a to-morrow extending for an indefinite
e period the privilege of continuing these
bonds at two per cent. It is expected the
rest of the outstanding continued bonds,
estimated to aggregate $20,000,000, will be
a presented for redemption during the next
two months. The net amount of gold in
the treasury to-day to -eet this liability is
S$132,471.403. Should the entire $20,000,000
be pidl in gold, it would not entrench on
the $100,000,000 of gold reserved for the
- redemption of legal tender notes.

such foreclosure set aside. After sponkiln g
about two hours on the constitutional

be superseded by coke from Wyoming.
1 This coke will also, when the projected line
shall have been completed, be laid down at
the smelters in Helerna, Butte, and proba
bly Anaconda. this will furnish the new
t road with traffic westward, while the pro
Sduct of the smelters and the ranges of Mon
tlna are expected to insure a profitable
carrying trade eastward. Following the
general course of the old military roads
f from Deadwood northward, and passing
through the valley of the Yellowstone, the
road will branch somewhere near Gallatin,
one line reaching to Helena and the other
to Butte. The Burlington, it is claimed,
will thus have a line from Helena to Chi
caRo that is 200 miles shorter than any of
the existing railways, and thus be in a posi
a tion to dictate to competing lines in the
s matter of rates.
i This plan of the Burlington is a violation
of a traffic arrangement that has long been
in existence between the "Q." and the
n transcontinental lines. The consequences
have been foreseen, and there will be no
protest from the Union and Northera Pa
cific and Great Northern companies, as
they will invade the territory hitherto con
c ceded to the Burlington. The latter road
is calculating upon the advantages it will
have in the possession of the Cambria coke
furnace of Wyoming, as well as upon the
traffic to be obtained from the smelters and
r- mines of Montana. However, there will be
ea decided disturbance when the traffic asso
ciation meets in this city a month hence.
It Is Raising a Row.
CnrcAoo, Sept. 1.-The fact that the Bur
e lington comrany is pushing an extension of
le its lines to Helena, Mont., is being util
y ized in certain quarters to create discord
among the members of the Western Traffic
f association. The Montana lines have sand
11 denly awakened to the fact that when the
6o extension is completed the Burlington will
sr be an active competitor, with the shortest
line from Helena to Chicago, and it is un
te derstood they will lay the matter before the
re advisory board next month, with the alle
5. gRtion that the Burlington has violated its
is agreement. The Burlington reople say the
extension was been before the Western
t.ratl. agreement was made.
Gould and the Union Paclfic.
NEW Yonx, S'pt. 1.-A Union Pacific di
rector says: "I have not beard that Gould,
Sage or Dillon have sold any of their Union
Pacific holdings as reported. They are
all heavy subscribers to the debt certillcates
and it would be hardly likely for them to
sell out at this time. Upward of three
quarters of the debt certificates are now
placed and the amount is being steadily in
crea+sed. 1 do not know whether Dillon is
going to resign or t.ot."
El'he reports circulated about pending de
velopments in regard to Union Pacific
affails are denied by the officers and direct
ors of the company. T'he-report that Sid
nev Dillon will resign the presidency is
called ridiculous by Director Orr.

do, and one, at least of the very highest
officials will resign."
