ixnion. Jan. 6, 6 a. m -Earl Roberts has gone
out of town to visit a sister in th* country over
Sunday, but will be back at the War Office early
on Monday. It Is clear that army reform de
pends in a large measure upon his Initiative
rather Thar, upon the. recommendations of the
special. Commission appointed by Mr Brodrick
to consider the details of the administration of
the War Office, which three committees have
investigated to little purpose during the last
three years. Nothing 'is said by Mr. Brodrick
about restoration of the functions -which were
taken away from the Commander-in-Chlef when
the Duke of Cambridge resigned the post. It
would be an earnest of real reform if Lord
Roberts, who knows from practical experience
wl»t Is needed in order to increase the efficiency
r , th * army. . were armed with, these larger
powers. That would be an effective tribute to
a General whom the Court and people have
Honored, and It would gratify the army, which is
fretting under War Office control.- .
Sir Henry olv'.» course in. attacking the
••a*? of the army In South Africa Is condemned
by military . men. but he commands a certain
amount of sympathy in the service by his strict
ures upon th" War Office for exercising author
ity with which it ought not to be intrusted. The
,_.,-,.<,«•.« of the service suffer, without doubt,
from civilian attempts to enforce discipline when
the personal authority of the Commander- In -
Chief would be accepted without questioning
This Is the anniversary of the Boer assault
open Ladysmlth, when General White's men
drove the enemy from Wagon Hill after fight
ing from dawn to dusk. General Boiler's Devon
shire friends might have chosen a more oppor
tune • day • for reviving the discussion over his
alleged orders for the evacuation of Ladysmith.
and if they considered it necessary to refer to
the matter they might have delivered • a more
effective reply. They assert that General Buller
did not order General White to surrender, but
suggested measures which might be taken if his
supplies were to run out. They also explain that
General Buller. after falling at . Coienso. was
r; «.- r :T.*i respecting General "White's sup
plies, which were larger than he supposed. This
explanation tends to confirm rather than dispel
the vague rumors which have found their way
into print, but not from any " authoritative
source. It Is probable that General Buller after
Getenso heliographed to General White that he
could not make 'a "second 'attempt to cross the
Tagela for four weeks, and suggested a retreat
under certain conditions if the garrison were
without food. The precise terms in which this
recommendation was made are known only to
Buller and. Whit* and. their confidential staff
officers. It is a passage of the secret history of
the campaign which will be brought to light
seme day in order to silence the rumor mongers
who have heard the camp talk of Ladysmith.
Lord Lansdowne's two sons had a hearty re
ception at Bowood yesterday on their return

Marseilles. Jan. s.— Archbishop Favler, the
head of the French Mission In North China, and
Vicar Apostolic of Peking, arrived here to-day
from the Chinese -capital after a short visit to
Rome, where he discussed with the Pope the
situation In China. In an Interview regarding
the conversation had with the. Pope December 3
by a correspondent of the "Matin."- in the course
of which Hi* Holiness made a highly Important
statement of the Vatican's policy toward the
French republic apropos of the Intention of the
Waldeck-Ro:«.au Ministry to Introduce a bill
against the religious orders. Archbishop Favier
"I can affirm that Pope Leo XIII Is admirably
posed toward France, and has not the slight
est Intention of resorting to the severe measures
which have been mooted, and that there is no
question of a diplomatic rupture. His Holiness
•aid to me. 'I love France with an my. soul.
* MonslsnoT Favler added that the Pope would
never withdraw bis protectorate over the Chris
tians In China from France, and that any effort
>' Germany to this end would remain fruitless
The Archbishop is an optimist regarding the
Chinese situation, and expresses the conviction
that a settlement of the difficulty will shortly be
reached. He proceeded -for Paris, where he will
confer with M Del casse. the Minister of For-
Msn Affairs. . ..' .' . ;.

nrsrrss the joint note.
Peking. Jan. 5.— A meeting of the Protestant
missionaries was held to-day to consider the
terms of the joint note of the Powers to China.
A majority of the missionaries spoke on the
subject. The consensus of opinion mrmm thai " ip
note is not comprehensive enough.
The Rev. Mr. Owens, of the American Board
of Foreign Missions, said he was opposed to It
for three reasons — because it was narrow, selfish
and careless. He added that it did not mention
the slaughter of Christians, but merely referred
to the killing of Baron yon Ketteler. the German
Minister, and an official of the Japanese Loca
tion. Sagiyama Akira.
The Rev. Dr. Tewksbury. of the American
Board of Foreign Missions, said the note was
better than could be expected, considering who
prepared It. Still. It was unsatisfactory.
The Rev. Mr. Wherry (?) pointed out that the
note was not comprehensive enough.
The Rev. Mr. L.owry (Dr. H. H. Lowrie. of the
Pao-Ting-Fu Mission?) thought It was only a
preliminary note, and said the missionaries
should get together, the same as business men,
and press their demands upon the Ministers
when the time came for making the treaties.
The Rev. Mr Upcraft said he thought that the
mention of Christianity in the note would have.
been a mistake, as te might have prevented its
adoption by Japan, the latter being a heathen
country, and also might have prevented its adop
tion by the Catholic countries, the latter being
opposed to Protestantism.
The Rev. Mr. Lowry's proposition that the
missionaries should adopt a programme and en
deavor to get their respective Ministers to see
It inserted in the treaties was agreed to.
Finally, two representatives of each mission
were appointed a committee to formulate the
views of those who took pttrt in the meeting.
The British Foreipn Office notified General
Gaselee to-day that an American correspondent
had stated that a British pantomime which had
been running in Peking caricatured the Empress
Dowager and was exceedingly offensive to the
Chinese, and that if this statement was true
the performance must cease. The pantomime,
which ran for three days In the Christmas
week, is said to have bren harmless, and to
contain nothing that would hurt the sensibili
ties of the most sensitive It was made up of
purely local skits regarding loot and the pro
pensities of the allies. It was named "Aladdin,
or. The Looted Lamp." It was very funny, and
pleased everybody. The proceeds were .flvlded
equally between the American and British mis
The British authorities here are surprise 1 that
any one could have found cause for ->ffence in
the performance. The British desire to mate
that it was not their intention to offend tny one.
nor do they believe that the performance ctuld
be construed as offensive.
The preliminary Joint note will proha'ily not
be signed before Sunday, as everything will
probably rot be ready before that day. Prince
Chlng says the Chinese plenipotentiaries are
prepared to sign an soon as the agrce.-nent is be
fore them. He does not believe the reports that
are prevalent in Peking that Southern China 1*
antagonistic to the present dynasty hrd will
endeavor to fornwlate a revolution, acting with
the Boxers, as soon as the foreign troops leave
China. He says the regular troops of the
Chinese army could easily quell such an Insur
rection. When asked why the Chinese troops
could not quell the Box?r uprising. Prince Chlng
said that the situation was different; that the
Boxers In Pe-Chl-Ll Province had practically
acquired the allegiance of a majority of the
populace, which was not the case :n South
China, the inhabitants there >>elng amenable to
law, order and discipline. He added tnat the
lesson learned there would be sufficient to deter
a majority of those who were wavering In their
allegiance to the dynasty. He believed that the
future of China would be peaceful.
Letters were received yesterday bearing date
of New-York. December '2. and every one is
wondering why the mail service has improved so
greatly since the Japin^se tooK charge of Amer
ican interests in Chlnn. A* a consequence of
thin Improvement every one is again praising
Japanese methods, and It is generally admitted
that the Japanese have done more than all the
other foreign troops and have asked less than
all the other Powers put together.
Baron Nlssl. the Japanese Minister. leaves
here to-morrow, the new Japanese Minister. M.
Jutaro Komura, having arrived here from St.
Petersburg. M. Komura was formerly Jap
anese Minister at Washington, from which city
he was transferred to St. Petersburg In 1900.
Paris. Jan. s.— The Foreign Office Is advised
from Shanghai, under date of January 3, that
advices from Slan-Fu confirm the reports of the
execution of Yu-Hsien (the former Governor of
Bhan-Se, guilty of massacring: about fifty mis
sionaries whom he had invited to accept his pro
tection). December 10. by order of the Dowager
Empress. Prince Tuan is still at Ninghla.
Thr-re are thirty thousand Chinese regulars at
Sian-Fu. The Court ha» made no preparations
to return to Peking.
Tien-Tsln. Jan. 4.— The German expedition
which started Christmas for Lien-Cheng-Hsu,
under command of Colonel Grubber, returned
Thursday. Colonel Grueber reports the capture
of forty-three Krupp field guns and the destruc
tion of two thousand rifles and large quantities
of ammunition.
Shanghai. Jan. •"•.— A dispatch received here
from Tlen-Tsln says Field Marshal Count yon
Waldersee has notified to his staff to cease hos
tilltJes, but that pome of the commanders have
not been informed of these Instructions. It Is
explained that they are In the field after Hoxers.
Prince Ching and LI Hung Chang have again
urged Count yon Waldersee to ask the com
m«nderH to desist from hostilities. /
Peking. Jan. S.— LI Hung Chang has suffered a
relapse, and because of the serious effects of this
and his great age it is feared that he will be
unable to act as plenipotentiary in arranging a
settlement of the troubles in China, and that
the. difficulty and delay In securing a successor
may « cause the postponement for a time of the"
negotiations .

Miss Marie L. AcKerman. daughter of the late
George Ackerman. president of the Tenth National
Bank, of this city, and niece of William K. Acker
man, who was for many years president of the Illi
nois Central Railroad, left her home, at No 20
West Flfteenth-st.. a week ago la-it Friday. She
has not yet returned, and her aunt, Mrs. Fay.
widow of Colonel John O. Fay. with whom she
lived, does not know where she Is or If she will
return. On the day before she left her home George
E. Wentworth, who Is the son of a Methodist min
ister and who has been a practising lawyer In this
city for some years, with an office at No. 31 Nas
pau-st.. told his wife that he was gotas to Philadel
phia, and since then he has not been to his house.
The friends of Mr. Wentworth and Miss Acker
man say that the couple thought that they were
destined for each other, and eloped a week ago last
Friday. None of their friends would say yesterday
where the couple had gone. It Is thought that they
went to Boston a few days ago. Several letters
have been received by persons living In this city
from Miss Ackerman since she disappeared. In
one of them Miss Ackerman said she was with
"George." This letter was received by Mrs. Fay
and was as follows:
Dear Aunt Kate: It is no secret to you by his
time that I have left New-York and all my £""«*.
and with George. We have left New-York forever,
and shall build up a new life for ourselves In some
other country. I shall write you from time to
time, and perhaps In the future, when you and all
the rest can feel less hardly toward me than I
know you do now. I shall disclose my hiding place.
There will be no scandal, nothing open.
Do not blame me, dear Aunt Kate. I have suf
fered terribly during these last few years and be
lieve me. I am grateful for all you and all the rest
have done for me. We could do nothing else but
what we did. Will you please ive my things to
Mr Peoll, of George's office, when he calls for
them: also my check, which will be collected by
Mr. Putnam fceorge's friend). Take out of It all
1 nha 3 lf U write you often. I shall think of you all
always, and perhaps by and by you will write to
me. I love you aft truly, believe me when I say
I do I have hated to do what I have done, but
neither I nor George could help it. Tell every one
who may ask that I am married and gone abroad.
Forgive me. oh, forgive me. , LULJJ.
Miss Ackerman had been for some time-a substi
tute teacher In Public School No. 60. at No. 218 East
Twentieth-st., and would soon have been appointed
a regular teacher si the school, as there was a
vacancy there and she was on the eligible list. She
was to have appeared before the Nominating Board
of the Department of Education some days ago to
receive the appointment to the vacancy. The prin
cipal of the school is Miss Caroline Emanuel. who
llvos at No. 172 West Seventy-nlnth-st. On Friday
last Miss Emanuel received the following letter
from- Miss Ackerman. which was dated January 2.
and was mailed in this city on January *:
Mv Dear Miss Emanuel: • „ . , ... „
' Circumstances have arisen which make It impos
sible for me to assume my position In No. 60. I re
cret this exceeding, and "hope that you will find
tome- one to satisfactorily fill my place.
" Please remember m- to all the teachers, and al
low me to wish you a happy new year. •
Miss Emanuel was seen yesterday afternoon, and
in' speaking" about Miss Ackerman" -..id
Miss Ackerman was a handsome young woman.
and had a lovable character. I was as devoted to
her as though she had been my sister. She was a
perfect sunbeam in the school. All the teachers
liked her. Her going away In the manner she la
reported to have- done was a great shock to me. I
feel as though I had suffered a severe loss. I had
a talk with her about the prospect of her being ap
pointed to a regular place In the school on Decem
ber 21. the day the school was closed for the holl
davs. ¦ She had received a notice from the Nomi
nating Committee to appear betoro it, and I think
I said to her. "You are going to receive a pleasant
Christmas ?urprl;e in the form of an nppomtment.
Her face-was nil brlow when I spoke to her. and
nh* «e«.med tn reJMc* over the good news. I think
that she really intended to make teaching her life
W Soon after I received the letter from her on Fri
c"avl sent word to ,he Nominating Committee of
the Department of Education that Miss Ackerman
had ¦¦wFthdrawn as a candidate for the vacancy
and suggested another suitable teacher.
Miss Fay. an, aunt of Miss Ackerman, -aid yes
terday to; a Tribune reporter that she thought. R.
M S. Putnam, of the law firm of Gasquet, Ruther
ford '*'- Putnam, *of . No. , 31 ' Nassau-st.y knew the
whereabouts ; 'of -Miss. Ackerman and Mr. '. Went
worth. Mr. Wentworth had a desk In the office of
the firm. When seen Mr. Putnam said:
Mr. Wentworth had an Independent practice.
There in no doubt that he eloped with Miss Aek
erman. The last time he was In this office was a
week ago laat Thursday. He then gave no Intima
tion to me or to any one else here that he Intended
to elope. Where he Is I do not know. I think the
rlans for his sudden departure were hastily made,
if he had thought over the step he took for a long
time I do not think he would have taken up a lot
of new crises, which he did. . And he has left his
l.Ußinesfl affnlrs In a very unsettled state. I shall
try to straighten them out for him. He waa about
thlrty-rlve years old. He was a graduate from
William!* College and from the Columbia Law
lll« father was a Methodist minister, and
was for some time stationed as a missionary in
China. Mr. Wentworth married Miss Jennie Wells
six ye.irn a ko. Mr?. Wentworth has a married sis
ter ntid a father, who Is a paralytic. Mlns Acker
man knew Mrs. Wentworth very well. Mine. Acker
man was a college chum of Mrs. Wentworth's sis
ter. I saw Mr. and Mrs. Wentworth together on
many occasions. They seemed to be a happy
couple. This Is simply a case ©f two persons tmag
lnlng thai they were destined for each other.
Mrs Kay said at her home yesterday afternoon
that the details of this romance were somewhat
complex. She said:
My niece was ¦ granddaughter of the late Charles
C (Mark, who was at one time a drygoods mer
chant of this city. She Is now about twenty-three
years old. and when she, Is thirty she will receive
iil<out J35.000 h\- the terms of the will of her mother.
who was a Miss Clark. I wan appointed her guar
dian. There was no need for my niece to teach, as
she received the Income from the money that she
will get when she Is thirty.
Every Sunday afternoon she would go to Mrs.
Wentworth's home for tea, and I am told George
would accompany her on the homeward Journey.
H»* never accompanied her as far aa the door of
her home, for I watched to see If he did. They
must have parted near the house. I knew nothing
about any We affair between my niece and Mr.
Wentworth until a week ago last Thursday, when
Mrs. Wentworth went to my sister's home. Mrs.
Wentworth then Bald to my Bister that my niece
and George Wentworth loved each other, and that
they were contemplating running away. I learned
that Mr. Wentworth soon after he returned to his
home from his office on that day packed a valise
and left the house. He told the servant there that
he was soHng to Philadelphia-
My niece was up early on Friday morning. I told
her that she should not run away. She had Just
received a letter. She left the house soon afterward.
and returned In about an hour. At about 11 o clock
that morning she said tome. "Goodby; I 11 be home
to-morrow morning. I am going to Aunt Lillian.
She was dressed as though she Intended to go to a
reception or party It was raining at the time, and
I told her that I thought a rainy day suit was the
best thing to wear on account of the weather. She
said that she liked to appear at her best when she
went to B ee Aunt Lillian On Saturday, the day
following. I received a telegram which was signed
"Lon." and was sent to me by Mr. Peoll. It. .read.
"All rlitht; will Bee you in a day or two. on
Wednesday last a man with a truck came hereto
take away Miss Ackerman's clothes. He had been
Bent by Mr. Peoll. I did not let the man take her
thlnss away. Mrs. Wentworth says that ehe will
not apply for a divorce, and that she has not made
up her mind whether or not she would let her hus
band Into her home again.
DELAY n u»J l\ir \ trrr*!..
Recorder Goff declined yesterday to make any
comments upon the statements of General .Moli
neux that there had been unreasonable delay in
submitting the papers in the case of Roland B.
Molineux to the Court of Appeals, and that an ap
peal will be made to the Legislature for an investi
gation of the delay. It was said that the Recorder
has been working several hours a day on the
papers in the case recently. . There are thousands
of folios of testimony in the case. The testimony
has been sent back to Mollneux's counsel twice to
have objectionable matter eliminated, and It has
been sent twice to the District Attorney's office for
the same reason.
Assistant District Attorney Osborne said yester
day: "I have nothing further to do with this ease,
and I am not withholding any papers or delaying
the appeal. As soon as the Court desires me to
send the papers they will be forwarded to the Court
of Appeals. The Court Is the source from which
these papers m .-• emanate. I used ti « greatest
expedition to have all the papers that I had to
draw sent to the Court, and that ended my con
nection with it." •'. ill"
. District Attorney Fhflbln yesterday made the
following statement: •
I" sea no reason why there should be any com
ment-unon the matter. In the case of Dr Buchanan
notice of appeal was filed in April, 1593. It was not
until \ukuU. ISM. that the case was riled. Noth
ing - was said about delay then. SO why should
there be criticism when only eleven months have
Parsed in the case of Molineux? On assuming^thls
office it became my duty to- inquire into tne
.. .x case. I found that the papers were In the
hand? of Recorder Goft": th.it the case had .lnto
served by the defendant counsel, to which amend
ments had been '{suggested ! by the District At
torney, and upon each of those amendment? 'he
Recorder was required to pnss. The case consists
of nearly six thousand pages. It was bt-yond pos
sibility that the amendments could be passed upon
by the Recorder in-a short 1 time. "l find that there

A 20th Century Thought
The clock of the universe reminds us that the best is none too
good and the absolute perfect is the standard. .
Our Footwear is the Standard—the absolute perfect. Take for ex
ample our UCANBEZ at $5.00, "Harvard" at S3. CO, "Varsity
at $5.00, for men, and our " Cammeyer's Standard"' $3.00 Shoe for
'women, . -
they cannot be improved upon. They are the absolute standards, and
the question must always be, how do other shoes at these prices com
pare with ours in beauty of form and finish, in excellence of material
and workmanship, in comfort and in lasting service.
The retail shoe world follows us and seeks to imitate, copy and
compare itself to us— this is the deference, honor and respect it is
pleased to pay to us as our just right and due. 'There is no sincerer
flattery than imitation. If the trade thus recognizes our leadership and
the superiority of our standard goods, the public may be assured that
this palm of victory in the world's competitions would not be accorded
us if our footwear was not really, truly and absolutely the very best 1
