VOV OL * LX • X°- 10.690. LATEST LONDON COMMENT. BITTER ATTACKS ON MR. CHAMBERLAIN " —ELECTIONS— SIR THOMAS'S CHALLENGE. [.-Yrvriiffct: 1900: By The Mtw-YoCk Tribune [BT CABLE TO THE TRIBCJfE.] London, Oct. 13. — Attacks upon Mr. Cham berlain have increased in bitterness and malignant spirit. The closing speeches of the Liberal canvass are directed mainly against him, and Henry Labouchere's deliberate charge that Abel Thomas. Member for Carmarthen, held in criminating letters, and would have read them if Cecil Rhodes had been attacked by him, is reprinted Is the Opposition press. Mr. Hawks ley has denied the charge from the Lib eral platform, but Mr. Labouchere is not satis fied, and is attempting to force Mr. Thomas to arraign Mr. Chamberlain. Cecil Rhodes has, however, greatly improved his reputation by ftriking the right key in his addresses on South Africa, and there are signs of public impatience over the persistency with which Mr. Chamber lain Is attacked. Lord Salisbury is invariably drawn toward associates when they are under fire, and Mr. Chamberlain is wellnigh certain to command the Prime Minister's support. His real source of danger is the Jealousy of the old Tories. :1 election is drawing to a close, and it is r enl that the Unionist party will have nearly as substantial a majority as it did be appeal to the country by the Liberals in 1986. There wore only two results declared last night. One of these, however, oral at West Motmouih. where Sir William Vrrnon-Harcourt has again been fighting with vigor. In spite of hie seventy-three year?, of course, ue was :e1 in s=uch a pronounced Radical di but all the same he has not been able to escape the experience of many other opponents of the Government. His majority has been pulled down by over 1,700 votes. Elections are Still dragging on, with nearly an equal exchange of seats between the parties, bat in gains the Government retains a slight ad vantage over tht- majority on the date of dis- Eilution. The di muel Woods, an ex cellent labor candidate, at Walthamstow was cot unexpected. Mr. Perks, who has been drum major for Ix^rd Row bery in the House of Com mons, is returned for Louth with an Increased majority, but the Harmsworth family met with another defeat in Worcestershire. Three Harmsworths stand for Parliament as Liberal- ImrerlaliEts, one being elected, but Alfred Harmsworth balanced the political forces by re maining outside as a Conservative, and regulat ing through "The Daily Mail" the reorganization of the Cabinet and a few oth^-r details. Captain Lambton's brother has captured a seat at Dur ham for the Unionist?, and other gains for each party are explained mainly by local preference. Fir Thomas Lipton ha? been bubbling over with American enthusiasm while his challenge •was on the sea and his pork operations were strengthening his grip on the Chicago market. Reticence has Involved rigid self-restraint when he was deeply interested in both subjects and fairly bursting with eagerness to talk about America. Now that he Is beginning to take press men into his confidence, he showers com pliments upon America, hut keeps his secrets fir himself. Nobody who knows him doubts the sincerity of his admiration for America and his respect for the sportsmanlike qualities of New- York yachtsmen. He is convinced that the last Cup contest increased the good feeling be tween the two countries, and that another com petition will have a similar effect. "When asked for details and explanation? of his second enterprise he is content with generalities. The announcement that there will be a fresh contest is discussed with fairness and intelligence by nearly all the English Journals. Not one of them intimates that he will be placed at unfair disadvantage in American waters. Several of them go out of their way to refute the old theory that the challenger must be built tough and seaworthy to withstand the Atlantic voyage, while her rival can be designed as a fair weather racer. Sir Thomas Lipton has not yet won the Cup, but he has reformed the manners of the English press In discussing the conditions of the International contests off Sandy Hook. The alarming news with regard to the condi tion of the Empress Frederick is certain to have a eerious effect on the health of the Queen. Her Majesty is still sorrowing for the loss of her teccnd eon. the Duke of Coburg 1 , and grave con sequences might arise should the illness of her «-lrtf*t daughter have a fatal termination. Various London journals have announced that Henry James is breaking up his protracted resi dence in England and preparing to retire to Massachusetts. His friends, who know how contented he Is In Sussex and London, have found it difficult to credit the report, even when precise details were furnished respecting his future home in America. There is no truth in the Btory, as I can state from personal knowl edge, and there is no foundation whatever for the report that he Is giving up his residence in England, where he has lived for twenty-four years.

REFORMERS GATHER IX FORCE— MAY BE RUSE TO TAKE CANTON. r-Komc Oct. 12.— The reformer Sun Vat ■en, according to dispatches from Canton, has Unfurled the reform flag in the Important town of Wei-Chow, on the East River. This act has given rise to considerable excitement in military circles in Canton, as it is believed that the ob ject of the reformers in raising their flap at Wei-Chow is to denude Canton of troops, bo that thpy can seize the city. Admiral Ho is pursuing the rebels in a north aaati - .;. direction from San-Chun. A British expedition, consisting of the 22d Bombay Infantry, with artillery, is going to the Kow-Loon Hinterland, though the district is re ported quiet. Sun Vat Sen, in October, ISO 3, organized a con spiracy at Canton to seize, the Viceroy, overthrow the Manchu dynasty and establish a constitution for China. Some at the corpplratore were arrested and confessed. gun Vat Bt-n. ■ doctor, escaped 10 the United States, and then made his way to Lon don. In October, 1836, he was inveigled into the Chinese Embassy in London, where be was kept a prisoner until he succeeded in Informing th« British Government, through a friend, that he had fcetn kidnapped. He was released on the demand of th« Marquis of Salisbury. The conspirators had organized a society called 'he. King Chung Wavy, or the "Chinese Progres "lve Society," and, while in the United States and England, Sun Fat Pen undertook to organize branch organizations. It wag alleged at the time nat among his principal colleagues in the move sient in America were Chinese graduates of Yale fcr^ Harvard. The aim of the Hinr Chun* Wooy *"* eaid to be the overthrow of the imperial form ■ Government In China and the substitution of •■• Republican system. In the summer of ISSS the reformers rose against "or ,- one or more day* autumnal vacation the Day LAn» offers the most tempting trip*. the Imperial authorities in the Canton Hinterland, inflicting great loss upon the Imperial forces, ami it Ml then reported from Hong-Kong that Sin Vat Pen was among tho leaders of the. rebellion. HOAR ASSAILS BRYAN. SENATOR SAYS HE IS MORE DANGEROUS THAN TRUSTS. MERE AGITATORS A MENACE TO SECURITY OF PROPERTY AND SANCTITY OF LAWS. If the trust be an bad as Mr. Bryan repre sents It. It la not. In my Jndgrment, an R-reat a if linear am Brynnlsm. You arc not helping the cause of antl-lm periulinm by KOin into partnership with llryanlsm. Yon cannot mix tyranny, dis honor; broken faith, anarchy, license In one rnp ami have constitutional liberty as a result of the mixture.— [SENATOR HOAR, at Con cord. Mass. 1 Concord. Mass., Oct. 12.— The Hon. George Friebie Hoar, senior Senator from Massachu setts, delivered a campaign address at th< Re publican rally held here to-night, and the entire town turned out to greet him in the Town Hall. Over the speakers' platform was the motto "Sound Money." and on either side was a large picture of McKinley ard Roosevelt. Samuel Hoar was chairman of the evening. Senator Hoar was introduced as "naturally of Concord, incidentally of Worcester." In opening his speech, Senator Hoar said: "I know that you will believe me incapable of coming to Concord to bring base o r ignoble counsel. M After referring to the Republicanism of this historic town, and to the outlook of the cam paign. Mr. Hoar said: We have the same old Democratic party, we have the same old Mr. Bryan, we have/ with one exception, the same old declaration of pur pose in the same old platform. I believe that Mr. Bryan does not mean business in this matter of imperialism, and that he does mean business in the matter of free coinage of silver aud the attack on the courts. Mr. Hoar analyzed briefly the Democratic platform, held Mr. Bryan responsible for the adoption of the war treaty, and said the Demo cratic leader was not sincere in his attitude toward imperialism. Continuing, Mr. Hoar said: The American people are becoming alarmed by great aggregations of wealth, which we call trusts. If the trusts be as bad aa Mr. Bryan represents it, it is not, in my judgment, as great a danger as Bryanism. The only practical rem edy Mr. Bryan suggests is that if any protected article be manufactured by a trust, that article shall at once be put upon the free list. When Mr. Bryan comes to talk of trusts, he makes the tariff a very real and vital issue. The solution for trusts, Mr. Hoar said, was the laws of trade, which will overthrow them sooner or later. Then continuing, he said: There is but one danger. That comes from agitators like Mr. Bryan, who would destroy alike the security of property, the protection of the courts and the sancttty of the laws. That danger will pass by and disappear. But they tell you that a great mistake has been made in the matter of the Philippine Islands. I think so, too. My opinion is well known. Th» policy which scempd tn me best for the country seemed to me also best for the Republican party. If that course had been pursued we should, in my opinion, have had the Presidential election almost without a struggle. Our question now is for the future. I can find no substantial difference, when we come to any practical declaration of purpose, between the two candidates or the two parties on that question. In general, both parties say they mean to give to the Philippine Islands self-gov ernment as soon as they are ready for it. The Democratic platform gives no assurance of immediate Independence. Mr. Bryan in his speech of acceptance makes no suggestion of recalling our troops by Executive power or of letting the Filipinos alone, or of making them any promise by Executive authority. He says he will call Congress together to do thp things pet forth in the Democratic platform. Now, he knows perfectly well that the Congress be will call together will do nothing beyond what the President has declared his purpose to have done. There are undoubtedly many persons in the Republican party who have been carried away by the dream of empire. They mean. I have no doubt, to hold on to the Philippine Islands for ever. But they do not constitute the strength of the party. 1 have an abiding confidence that these pledges are to be kept. I believe Agui naldo and Mablni entitled to self-government. I believe also that Booker Washington and Robert Small are entitled to self-government. I have little respect for the declaration of lov of lib erty of the men who stand with one heel on the forehead of Booker Washington, of Alabama, nn<l the other on the forehead of Robert Small! of South Carolina, and wave the American Has over Agulnaldo and Mabinl. You are not help ing the cause of anti-imperialism by going into rsbip with Bryan. You cannot mix tyranny, dishonor, broken faith, anarchy, license in one cup and have constitutional liberty the result of the mixture. If the firm of Bryan, Croker, Altgeld, Boutwell, Tillman and Schurz do business at the old Democratic stand thny will transact the o!d Democratic business. "A DIPLOMATIC TRIVMPIir AMRASSADOR WHITE TELLS OF THE PRAISE GIVEN TO AMERICA'S COURSE IN CHINA. Andrew D. White, United States Ambassador to Germany, registered at the Fifth Avenue Hoti-1 yesterday. On Tuesday next he will sail on the Deutschland for Berljn, to resume his duties. Wti-n asked about the Chinese situa tion he said: "There is nothing particularly new to talk about. Th^ impression prevails in diplomatic circles in Europe that up to this time our Gov ernment has shown the greatest skill in handling the difficult problems which the Powers have been obliged to face. One of the shrewdest members of the Diplomatic Corps told me just before I sailed for this country that this Gov ernment was the only one that scored a diplo matic triumph. The opinion seems to be quite general that this country acted with grr-at wis dom and discretion when things were at their worst. The other nations apparently took It for granted that their Ministers had been mur dered through the connivance of the Chinese Government, and they dropped efforts look ing to tho relief of their legations. The United States, on the other hand, avted on the theory that the Chinese Government was not necessarily hostile, or guilty of trying to harm our Minister, and we were the first to hear of the safety of the Ministers through the Con ger difipatf-h. Again, it was good Judgnv our Government to hold aloof at Tien-TPin. Our entire course with r»>ferencf to China leaves us on a better footing with that «*mpir»» than per haps any other nati< .-i;." Mr. White said that he had not had an op portunity to study Dip political situation close ly, but from what be had heard he thought there was no doubt of the re-election of Presi dent Ifeßlaley. The Ambassador's attention was called to a dispatch in an afternoon paper announcing that a Kuwsian transport had been detained by the home authorities at Wilna, the officer! having b»-«-n told that instead of going to China they would be needed to fight an enemy across their border, meaning Germany. "There can be no foundation for such a story," Bald Mr. White. Mr. White will be accompanied to Berlin on his return on Tuesday by his grandson, Andrew White New bury, who hereafter will be his pri vate secretary. FEW EQUAL, NONE BETTER The Pennsylvania Limited stands upon Its merits with the i raveling public Leaves New York every mornloc— NEW- YORK. SATURDAY. OCTbBER 13. 1900. -SIXTEEN^ AGES.-^xJWMSw TO SAIL FOR THE POLE. WILLIAM ZIEGLER WILL EQUIP AX EX PEDITION TO THE FAR NORTH. There is to be another attempt to reach the North Pole. It is to be backed by the money of William Ziegler. the well known capitalist and real estate operator of this city, and put into execution by Evelyn B. Baldwin, who has al ready penetrated far into the icy recesses of the mysterious North land, and who. as a member of the Walter Wellman expedition, spent the winter of l£B6-*99 on Franz Josef Land. The detailed plans of the expedition have not yet been made public. Just how the explorers are to reach the spot where the compass needle points straight down and the motionless lode star is directly overhead is still being discussed by the two principals in the enterprise. When seen last nisht. however, Mr. Ziegler said that ships would be used as far north as possible, from which point the dash would be made over the ice in sledges. Two ships, he added, would most likely be needed, so that one might remain behind whil<* the other returned south for fr^ph supplies. By this plan the ship remaining north would be used as headquarters and rallying point for land expeditions. The explorers are expected to start next sum mer unless unavoidable delay is encountered In the preparations. Since the ships will doubtless be of special construction, considerable time may thus be required to build them. As has been found in former expeditions, and especially in the voyage of the Fram, ships constructed to withstand the enormous vicelike power of newly forming ice are far more practical than those built for commercial purposes and remodelled. Tt is patriotism which has inspired Mr. Ziep ler with his present ambition. He said last night: "It has been my lifelong desire to know thn: the American flag was the first to float over the North Pole. If I wore not so old I would go as far as T could to the Pole. As it is, I can only supply the means for another to make the attempt. It is possible that Walter Wellman may also be a member of the expedition. Mr. Wellman has already gained considerable renown for his dash to the Pole two years ago. Mr. Baldwin was born in Illinois. He was a member of the Peary expedition of 1893-94, re turning with Peary and Le<* to winter at Anni versary Lodge. In the spring of 1894 he crossed the ice of Greenland on sledges. Mr. Ziegler has considerable interests In sev eral different lines of business. He Is connected with the Royal Baking Powder Company, the Realty Trust Company and "The Brooklyn Daily Eagle." His home is at No. f>2l Fifth-aye. COLONIZATION IN THE KITH. "DRY DOLLAR' SULLIVAN'S SENATE DIS 1 RIOT FULL OF "BOARDING HOUSES." It is alleged that new methods in colonizing have been adopted in the Vlth, VlHth and Xth Assembly districts, which compose the Xlth Senate District. The Xlth is Senator Timothy D. Sullivan's bailiwick. There have suddenly been opened in this dis trict, it is said. numerous alleged boarding houses, in which are housed many men who, it is thought, are colonizers. To get information about the so-called boarders In these houses is much more difficult than to find out about th« persons living in the lodging houses. Charles H. Murray, the Republican leader of the VHlth Assembly District, was seen ■ last night at the headquarters in the district. wh*<-n is at No. I>7l Grand-st. "An effort to colonize," he said, "is being made in every part of this district. Many per sons who have been hired to vote illegally on Election Day have been sent to live with fam ilies who are supposed to take in boarders. It is very hard to ferret our these persons. We are doing our utmost to discover persons who have illegally registered. There were about twelve ar rests at the registry places in the district to day, and several hundred persons were chal lenged. The only way the Democrats can win this district is by colonization. In the Vlth Assembly District the Republican workers were busy yesterday in challenging per sons who they thought would have no legal right to vote at the coming election. No arrests were made, however, for illegal registering so far as could be learned. James E. March is the Republican leader of this district, and one of his chief workers is Thomas McNulty, who Is the Republican can didate for the Senate in the Xlth District. It was reported that a stupendous effort to col onize had been made In the Fifteenth Election District of the Vlth Assembly District, and of the 1(57 men who registered at the polling place of that election district yesterday forty-seven were challenged by Julius Gersen, the Republi can captain of the election district. In the course of the day Gersen had a talk with Superintendent McCullagh about the mat ter. When seen at his home. No. 11 Stanton-st., last night by a Tribune reporter, Gersen said: On the first registration day last year ninety-one persons registered in my election district, and to day the roll? contain the names of 167 persons. I cannot explain this remarkable Increase in this year's first day's registration over the same day last year. I have lived in this district twenty-three years, and I do not think the district has grown wonderfully In the last year. In some houses where there was only one voter last year, from ten to fifteen persons registered to-day. This Increase calls for a thorough Investigation. TWO JUMP FROM FLYTXCr TRAIX. POLICEMAN FOLLOWS AND CAPTURES HIS PRISONER. WHO HAD CRAWLED THROUGH CAR WINDOW. Policeman George Atwell, Of the Mount V>r non police, yesterday had the thrilling experi ence of jumping from a railroad train going at the rate of thirty miles an hcur. He was after an alleged bicycle ti.i^f, who tried to make his escape by jumping through the car window. At well was taking William Warren, who had been caught in the act of making away with a wheel In Mount Vernon on Thursday, back from Police Headquarters in this city. The men boarded the I:< 4 p. m. train on the New-York, New-Haven and Hartford Railroad at Grand Central Station. When the train reached Mott Haven, Warren asked Atwell to let him tfo to the toilet room. Atwell did this, but stood outside of the door waiting for him. Suddenly Atwell heard the lock dick. Then he beard the window squeak. He did not wait a set ond longer. Hushing out on the platform. At well arrived in time to see Warren jump out of the window. He struck th*» earth and rolled along like a ball. The policeman did not hesi tate ;i moment. He Jumped off the train, which was «oi!ig lit full speed, and landed on his face. The majority of the people tn the car saw the two oi ■ liie windows, and thought the train had struc k it i-arty of men. Mayor Flske of Mount Vernon rushed to the platform j'ist in ti ii)i • to see Atwell get up and start for th« es '.•apt^d prtsoni r. who had a pood start on him. The Mayor pulled the bellrope and had the train i. After the particulars had been learned the train started again. Mayor Fiske inking Wan en's coat, which he had abandoned, to Mount Vernon. Atwell had to chase hi* man a mile along the railroad tracks before he caught him. Warren did not stop until at;er the po liceman ha-i fired several shots at him Warren was taken to Mount Vernon, where both of the men received medical treatment. The prisoner's shoulder had been dißlocated by the Jump, and Atwell was badly cut about the face. Neither of them was seriously injured, however.

RICE WILLS MADE PUBLIC THE FIRST TESTAMENT OFFERED FOR PROBATE. MAIN DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO LIES IN THE DISPOSITION OF THE RESIDUARY ESTATE— AI,T, FOR PATRICK IN THE SEC OND WII,U Th*t provisions of the two wills upon which •will be bas-d the contention for th# Rice mill ions were made public yesterday. Th* instru ment which is known as the first will, and which was drawn in September, Isftfi, nas filed in the office of the Surrogate a few minutes before 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon by Mark W. Potter, of the law firm of Horr.blower, Byrne Miller & Potter, acting on behalf of Captain James A. Baker, the representative of the relatives and Southern heirs of the late William M. Rice. Subsequently the copy of what is alleged to be the last will of Mr. Rice, which bears the date of June 30, 1000. was sent to Captain McClusky by the legal firm referred to, and was by him given out for publication. To those who have followed from day to day the developments of the case, as they have been reported in The Tribune, the publishing of the two documents will present little fresh information. The graat and material difference between the two wills la the dlFposal of the residuary estate. In the first It is provided that the residue shall go to the William M. Rice Institute, of Houston, Tex., while in the second Albert T. Patrick, who, with the valet, Jones, is now confined in the Trmbs on charges of f&rgine; the name of Mr. Rice to checks afrgTepating a value of $250,000. Is named as the residuary legatee. The other discrepancies are somewhat of a minor charac ter. Involving- legacies to new beneficiaries In some caiee and enlarging In the second will the bequests to the relatives and others who are named in the first one. FTGHT ABOUT THE RESIDTTE It. will unquestionably be upon the clause which relates to the residue that the courts will be asked to adjudicate. Th«* tribunal upon which will rest the determining of the validity of the alleged last testament of Mr. Rice will have many points of extreme nicety to pass upon, Not the least of these will be the con flicting evidence as to the authenticity of Mr. Rice's signature. The interests represented by Captain Baker have not yet seen the signature at the second will, but if their surmises are cor rect the numerous handwriting experts who have been employed by them will find that the signature to this document is fraudulent, as they declare the signatures to the checks and some of the assignments to be. But on behalf of Patrick two notaries named Meyers and Short are prepared to swear that they actually saw Mr. Rice sign the will. It may be observed that on their work of testing the genuineness of the signature to the alleged last will of the dead millionaire the experts will have plenty of material to work upon, inasmuch as every page bears what is declared to be the signature of Mr. Rice and is signed also by th» two notaries. Moreover, with regard to the checks themselves. It is admitted that Captain Baker may have some difficulty in proving ihem to be spurious. The experts maintain that the exactitude of the measurements of the writings on the two checks stamps them Indisputably aa tracings, but so far the original check from which the alleged tracings was made has not been found, while It has been frequently assert ed by experts that although a traced signature can be proved to be a forgery it Is almost Im possible to fasten upon the individual suspected of the crime the authorship of the tracing, for the reason that a tracing contains only the char acteristics of the original signature. WETIIERBEE ONE OF THE WITNESSES. One of the witnesses of the 189fi will which was offered for pmbate yesterday afternoon two or three minutes before the closing of the Sur rogate's office, is Walter O. Wetherbee, whose name has been brought Into prominence In the case. Mr. Wetherbee charged tho valet. Jones, with making- a proposition to him last winter whereby Jones, by reason of tho control which he said he exerted over Mr. Rice, suggested that for a consideration he could get Wetherbee made an executor of the old man's will. The other vitness is W. F. Harmon, of No. 672 Put nam-ave., Brooklyn, whose place of business is at the same address as that of Swenson & Sons. William M. Rice, jr., a nephew of the old man; John D. Bartine, of New-Jersey, and Cap tain James A. Baker were made executors of the first will. One of its terms was the bequest to the executors of $80,000 for the use and benefit of Rice's brother, Frederick A. Rice, and his wife for their maintenance. The money is to bo invested and the inoomf* is to be devoted to the sujport of the two persons named. "The surplus of said Income, If any," it Is devised, "may be paid by said Frederick A. Rice and his. wife. Charlotte, If they so elect, or the survivcr of them. If he or she so elect, to J. S. Rice. F. A. Rice, jr.. David Rice, George. Rice. Minnie Lummis, wife of H. H. Lummls, and Libbie Timpson. wife of Paul B. Tlmpson. any or all of them, in such proportions as the said Frederi-k A. Ric« and his wife, Charlotte, or the survivor of them, may deem best. After the death of the said Frederick A. Rice and his wife, Charlotte, It Is my desire, and I so direct, that my executors, the survivors or survivor of them, shall pay said sum of $SO,OOO to the sur viving above mentioned children of F. A Rice and his wife. Charlotte." In like manner $10,000 Is left to Minerva R. Olds and to Charlotte S. McKee. both of whom are sisters of Mr. Rice. To his nephew William at Rice, jr.. the deceased millionaire left all the indebtedness that might he due at his death to his estate by the firm of J. I. and W. M. Rice, of Hyatt, Tex. RESTDI-E TO RICE INSTITUTE. The sixth and se%enth clauses of the will read as follows: All the rest and residue of my estate, real personal and mixed, and wheresoever stuate I give, devise and bequeath unto the "W illlam M. Rice Institute for the Advancement of L'lera ture Science and Art." a corporation domiciled In the city of Houston, In Harris County. Texas. It Is my desire that my namesake, William M. Rice, jr shall be elected to fill the vacancy in the Board of Directors of the "William M. Rice Institute for the Advancement of Literature Science and Art," caused by my death; and I express the hope that he will take an interest in the prosperity and success of said Institute, and that he will continue to act as a member of said directory. Finally, the provision is made that in the event of any differences arising at any time "be tween my executors as to the management of my estate, then, if there are more than two directors acting, the judgment of a majority of them shall control.

Indianapolis, Oct. 12 (Special).— Chairman Mar tin of the Democratic State Central Commit tee received a telegram from National Committee man Taggart, who Is now In New-York, to-day, which brought the discouraging news that he had failed to interest Mr. Croker to the extent that he had hoped, and that there was little likelihood at his getting a substantial addition to the Indiana campaign fund from the chief of the Tammany Democrats. The mission of Mr Taggart was sug gested by Chairman Jones of the National Com mittee, when the Indiana managers made a de mand for money and failed to get it from that organization. Both Chairman Martin and Commit teeman Taggart declared that Indiana could not be carrit-d unless there is help from some outside source, and Mr Jones asked Taggart to go to New- York and lay the facts before <"roker. The Mayor is now there, bat the indications are that he has not succeeded in his mission. LDD<;i\G BOUSE LAW 1\ CHirA'rO. MANY rRAUDVUOIT TOTES WTtX KOI BF ■ THIS YEAR Chicago. Oct. 12 (Special*.— lt is claimed by the Republican managers that at least tan thousand fraudulent votes wh'ch have been cast at previous elections In the lodging house wards have been made impossible by the new lodging house pro visions of the Election law. This is the first gen eral election that has taken place under the amended law. and the falling off in the registra tion In the big lodging house wards li due largely to this fact, it Is asserted. The Democratic man agers admit that this provision will cost their ticket this year something like five thousand votes, but of course, they say this Is not an admission of fraud heretofore, but because there are many voters who have no permanent place of abode, hut who live In the same precinct moat of the time. The law's requirements are that not mere than six per sons shall occupy one room, no matter what the size for lodging purposes. Lodging house keepers must keep a register of all guests and file affidavits giving the names of all lodgers, their rooms or bed chambers, the length of time they have lodged there and for how long the rooms are engaged, as well as the numbers of the vacant rooms. This must be done thirty days preceding an election. ryDISCREET OFFICIAL REMOVED. Parts, Oct. 13.— The Minister of the Colonies, M Decrals. has relieved of his post M. A. E. A. Ducos, French Resident Superior In Cambodia. The reason for the measure is evidently the undiplo matic reply which M. Ducos made to 'he charges of Prince Inkanthor. In the interview published on Thursday In the -Matin." In which he asserted that the attacks upon French officials In Cambodia, which form a part of the memorial to the French Government on behalf of King Norodom are due to the Kings hatred of the work of civilization being carried on by the French In Cambodia. It became apparent from th.< Interview that King Norodom had not been treated In a manner befitting his station. On one occasion he « as even out in chains by the predecessor of M Dueos. It Is evidently the desire of th« French authorities to prevent a repetition of such imprudences The "Figaro ' believes that the action of M. Ducrals Is only the first step In the purification of French colonial methyls. WOODRUFF SPEAKS AT KINGSTON. Kingston. N. X., Oct. 12-Lieutenant-Govemor Timothy L.
