London. Nov. 22.— The truth about Mr. Cham
ber-io'S Journey to South Africa is that It is
an electioneering campaign. He is going out
next Tuesday, in defiance of all precedents, to
bring about, after direct consultation with the
Kirg. 2 reconciliation of races after the war
with tIH Boers, which was not fought to a fin
ish, but was 4ed prematurely. The experi
ment if= interesting, but uncertain in results.
The situation in South Africa is grave, but is
not Jesp< rate Treason has not been made
odious: loyalty has not been rewarded. An at
tempt ha.^ been made to smother race hatred
trith kindness. A similar undertaking has not
succeeded in Ireland, hut it has been repeated
in South Africa. Peace was made with mag
jiinimlty and softness. and by the refusal to
suspend the Cape constitution Mr. Chamber
tain left the Dutch race in the saddle.
He now sets out for South Africa, halting first
a Natal, where he is certain to receive a loyal
frtetinf. and going thence to Cape Town, where
the next election will be influenced largely by
fhf speeches which he may make and the con
ference* which he may hold. It is either a. mas
|pr stroke of policy or a desperate remedy.
John Moriey*e commendation of Mr. Chamber
lair. mission at the banquet of the National
Liberal Club included a reflection that an un
derstanding might have been reached with
President Krilger for the avoidance of war If
Be ha J been at Bloemfontein in charge of the
negotiations. The implication tva« that the gov
ernment was not well served by the High Com
nifsloner. although he was acting: under direct
Instructions from the Colonial Office.
A similar deduction may be drawn from Mr.
Chamberlain's Journey to South Africa. The
fxplanation offered that Mr. Chamberlain is
tnxlous to obtain facts at first hand is oh
viouFly unjust to Lord Milner. who has been
laboring- strenuously on the ground, and has
br-en in close communication with both races
and all interests. Lord Milner'a prestige and
influence were impaired from the moment Mr.
Chamberlain's intention of visiting South Africa
as announced: there will be appeals from Lord
Milner"s Judgment to Mr. Chamberlain's de
cisions, and as they have not agreed on impor
tant questions like the suspension of the con
stitution of Cape Colony, there may be a lack
of unity and continuity In Imperial policies.
Against these losses and risks must be set oft
the possible advantage of the Increased co
operation of two Jealous races, and the restora
tion of good feeling which may result from Mr.
♦"hnmberlain's reception in Natal. Cape Colony
and the two Dutch colonies. The result* will be
disclosed when the general elections are ordered

London. Nov. 22.— Great Britain is contem
plating serious reprisals against Venezuela. The
Associated Press Is also officially informed that
Great Britain Is acting with Germany In all
matters relating to the present state of affairs
In Venezuela. Whether the contemplated action
will take the form of a Joint naval demonstra
tion, accompanied by or following the severance
of diplomatic relations. Is a matter now -in*
discussed in Berlin and London. There is rea
son to believe that, the British Government has
been either officially or otherwise informed that
the United States will not intervene in any
demonstration having the object of protecting
the property rights of British citizens or their
Interests in Venezuela. The reports that Ger
many and Great Britain have been urging Min
ister Bowen, at Caracas, to Join In the combina
tion are discredited here, .It is pointed out that
both Berlin and London have a thorough un
derstanding with Washington regarding the
main features of the policy involved, which, it Is
maintained, in no way enrronrb.es nn the Mon
roe Doctrine.
The Venezuelan protest against the action of
the British sloop of war Fantome in entering
the. Orinoco River in spite of the blockade has
now been received by the British Foreign Office,
but it is only one of many which have been
coining In for the last month. The Foreign Of
fice, views this and the others merely as an en
dtavor on the part of the Venezuelan authorities
to offset the repeated strong demand* made by
the British Minister at Caracas
A Foreign Office official said to n roprusHuU
tlve, of The Associated Press:
"We regard this latest publication as merely
an endeavor to < over up the real issues
and blind th* ♦■yes of other nations to
our frequent demands for an explanation
of and reparation for the treatment of Brit
ish subjects or their property. "We have re
ceived absolutely no satisfaction. The Venez
uelans appear absolutely hopeless. We see
nothing for it but the most serious measures."
The presence of a German squadron In the
Caribbean Sea, it is believed, may, to some ex
tent, be connected with possible Joint action on
the part of Great Britain and Germany.

Bquare yesterday in an automobile hansom, ex-
Mayor William R. Grace w.i.s severely Injured.
The vehicle ran into a pillar of the elevated
railroad in front of No. 09 Sixth-aye. The
doors of the hansom were closed, and the fur< - e
of the collision shatered the glass, the frag
ments falling on Mr. Grace's head and face.
One large piece cut a gash two* inches long on
the left side of his chin.
He was carried into the drui? store of Leo
Dreyfus, by the automobile driver and a pe
destrian, and T>r. John S. Richardson, of No.
128 Washington Place, was called. He closed
the wound with four stitches. Mr. Grace was
then taken to his home.
The accident Is said to have been due to the
slippery condition of the pavement The driv
er, who was not injured, said that in making
a turn to avoid a truck the wheels of the ve
hicle slipped, and before he could control the
machine it ran Into the pillar.
At the home of Mr. Qrace, No. ,",l Bast Sev
enty-nlnth-Kt., later It was said that he was
able to be about the house? although he was
slightly indisposed. His family physician. Dr.
Rl<e. of 123 East Nineteenth-st, was called,
and after an examination said that Mr. Grace
had not been seriously injured, although the
wound on the chin was painful and Irritable.
Schenectady. N. V.. Nov. 22.— The announcement
was made by an official of the Trades Assembly
this morning that the boycott may be prolonged
by reason of the action of the General Electric
Company, which also Is the owner of the Schenec
tady Railway Company, in the discharge of a
number of men employed in the punch press shops.
The union men assert that these men were dis
charged because of their activity In the prelim
inaries attending the Institution of the boycott,
which they declare, has made the company de-
Blre to get rid of them. The company will make
no statement on the subject.
••It is nothing more nor less than a step toward
weeding out the members of trades unions In the
shops " the official declared "One of the men.
who lias been in the employ of the company, was
la d off several days ago. together with the other
men because of i Blackness of work. When his
layoff was finished he reported for work again,
h.it was told that he would not be wanted again,
a" he had been adjudged Incompetent The punch
£?ess operators delegates voted with the other
d.l.c-.t.V of the machinery builders' section of the
Trad'- Assembly th. other night to withdraw" th.;
boycott against the railway, but in the face of this
development this action may be reconsidered. If
the company means to tire the union men, the
boycott will have another Issue, and we may not

home Is on Bayra-st., was attacked last night by
a big negro In Morris-aye. She made a. desperate
resistance, and th*- man, hearing some persona ap
proaching, finally fled. He was captured later and

Miss Senl was walking in Morriß-ave., when the
negro sprang from a dark corner near a bridge.
and, placing one hand over her mouth, tried to

threatened to stab her If she made an outcry. Mt^s

utter a cry for help. She had bitten the negro
on the band to make him release his hold. Her
cries were heard by a butcher, who haa a etore in

and some other men hurried to the spot. The negro
ran when he heard them coming, and, although
they pursued him for some distance, he got away.

A number of sensational and unfounded rumors
about Fire Commissioner Sturgis and what he was
Boing to do with Fire Chief Edward broker, and
what, in turn, was going to be done to Mr. Sturgis
by the Mayor, set Fire Department circles .igog
with excitement yesterduy. One story was that
there had been a conference at Mayor Low's hou^e
on last Thursday night, lasting till 2 o'clock in the
morning, attended by Commissioner tHunjis, Cor
! poration Counsel Rive 6 and about • very one con
cerned in the Sturgis-Croker controversy but Crpker
himself, and that Croker would be bounced to
Another was that Mr. Rives had told Mr. Stur^-ia
that he had no case against Croker, while still
another— and it was just as bald ht-aded as the
j others— was that Mr. Sturgis would defy the Mayor
and the Mayor would forthwith remove Mr. Stur
gis. When Commissioner Sturgis was se. i: last
! night by a Tribune reporter he said:
"Yes, I've seen a number of the published state
| ments. I do not care to discuss them, further than
I to say that the Mayor has not warned me that if I

"It Is not true." said William Leary, secretary
iof the Fire Department, "that ther was a mid

by Commissioner Bturgls and my.s.-lf. on Thursday

F'hlladelphia, Nov. 22.— President Roosevelt,
arrompanled by several members of his Cabinet,
came to this city to-day to attend the dedication
of the new Central High School for Boys and the
Founders' Day exercises of the Union League
Club. He made two addresses at the school,
one in assembly hall, where the forma! cere
mony took place, and the other from the balcony
of the building, to the tiffin hundred pupils ..f
th. school.
"When the exercises at the High School ended
the President went to the home of ex-Post
master General Charles Emory Smith for
luncheon, and from there to the home of Ed
ward T. Stoteabury. where a reception was given
for him. At the Union League Club to-night he
was the principal speaker. He said:
Forty years ago this club was founded, In
the dark days of »he Civil War. to uphold the
hands of Abraham Lincoln and give aid to
those who battled for the Union and for human
liberty. Two years ago President MeKlnley
came here as your guest to thank you, and
through you all those far sight < d and loyal
men who had supported him in his successful
effort to keep untarnished the national good
faith at home and the national honor abroad,
and to bring back to thi.s country the material
well-being which we .now so abundantly enjoy.
It wan no accident which made the men of this
club •• "o stood as In a peculiar sense the cham
pious f< J ■ pholders of the principles of Lln
•Wln Vn the curly slxtie.* stand no less stoutly
for those typified in the person of McKlnley
during the closing years of the century. The
qualities apt to make men respond to the call of
duty In one crisis are also apt to make them
respond to a similar call In a crisis of a differ
ent character. Tha traits which enabled our
people to pass unscathed through the fiery or
.l - a. ; of the Civil War were the traits upon
which we had to rely In the less serious, but
yet serious, dangers by which we were men
aced In IS9C. 1866 and 1900.
From the very beginning our people have
markedly combined practical capacity for
affairs with power of devotion to an ideal. The
lacK of either quality would have rendered the
possession of "he other of small value. Mere
ability to achieve success in thine? concerning
the body would not have atoned for the failure
to live the life of high endeavor; and. on the
other hand, without a foundation of those
qualities which bring material prosperity there
would be nothing on which the higher life could
be built. The men of the Revolution would have
failed if they had not possessed alike devotion
to liberty and ability, once liberty had been
achieved, to show common sense and self-re
straint In its use. The men of the great Civil
War would have failed had they not possessed
the business capacity which developed and or
ganized their resources in addition to the stern
resolution 10 expend these resources as freely
as they expended their blood in furtherance of
the great cause for which their hearts leaped.
It is this combination of qualities that has
made our people succeed. Other peoples have
been as devoted to liberty, and yet. because of
lack of hard headed common sense and of
ability to show restraint and subordinate in
dividual passions for the general good, have
failed bo signaliy in the struggle of life as to
become a byword among the nations. Yet other
peoples, again, have possessed all possible
thrift and business capacity, but have been
trampled under foot, or have played a sordid
and ignoble part in the world, because their
business capacity was unaccompanied by any
of the lift toward nobler things which marks
a great and generous nation. The stern but
Just rule of Judgment for humanity is that each
nation shall he known by its fruits, and if
there are no fruits, if the nation has failed, it
matters but little whether it has failed through
meanness of soul or through lack of robust
ness of character. We must Judge a nation by
the net result of Its life and activity. And so
we must Judge the policies of those who at any
time control the destinies of a nation.
Therefore I ask you to-night to look at the
results of the policies championed by President
McKinley on both the occasions when he ap
pealed to the people for their suffrages, and to
see how well that appeal has been justified by
the event. Most certainly I do not claim all
the good that has befallen us during the last
six years as due solely to any human policy.
No legislation, however wise, no administration,
however efficient, can secure prosperity to a
people or greatness to a nation. All that can
be done by the lawmaker and the administrator
Is to give the best chance possible for the peo
ple of the country themselves to show the stuff
that Is In them. No law can make a fool wise.
a weakling strong, or a coward brave, but good
laws and good administration of the laws can
give to strong, honest, brave men a chance to
do well.
President McKinley was elected In ISfXi on
the specific pledge that he would keep the
financial honor of the nation untarnished and
would put our economic system on a stable
basis, so that our people might be given a
chance to secure the return of prosperity. Both
pledges have been so well kept that, as Is but
too often the case, men are beginning to forget
how much the keeping of them has meant.
When people have become very prosperous they
tend to become sluggishly indifferent to the
continuation of the policies that brought about
their prosperity. At such times as these It is.
of course, a mere law of nature that some men
prosper more than others, and too often those
who prosper less. In their jealousy of their more
fortunate brethren, forget that all have pros
pered somewhat.
I ask you soberly to remember that the com
plaint made at the present day of our industria'
or economic conditions never takes the form of
stating that any of our people are less well off
than they were seven or eight years back, be
fore President McKlnley came in and his poli
cies had a chance to be applied, but that the
complaint Is that some people have received

The adxance In the value of the securities of
the Manhattan Railway Company and the
strength of the other local traction stocks has
b<»en the most interesting feature in Wall Street
in the last week. Rumor has followed rumor to
explain the sudden activity and enhanced value
of those stocks, but out of It all nothing def
inite has come. It has been said that the Man
hattan was to be leased to The Interborough
Rapid Transit •'ompany (the suhway company I*,1 *,
that a substantial guarantee upon the Manhat
tan sto.-k was to be givfti. and that other local
traction stocks were to benefit through traffic
It was stated yesterday by a financier who Is
in a position to know what is going on that the
last two months have been pregnant with In
terest for the local traction companies, but that
to-day the situation is still unsettled He made
the statement that the -York Central Rail
road and the Pennsylvania Railroad, both of
which corporations have been mentioned freely
as figuring in the traction situation, have as
corporations taken no hand in the matter, al
though he admitted that Interests controlling
these properties were keenly interested in the
future of the local surface railway, subway
and elevated railway properties, and that event
ually the New-Tort Central and the Pennsyl
vania might become factors in the situation.
The New-York Central has under considera
tion and soon will undertake Improvements upon
its Grand Central terminal that will Involve
the expenditure of millions of dollars. The ques
tion of distribution of passenger traffic after
reaching its terminal -is an acute one. The
rFennsylvanla Railroad is ju3t ajtajtir.to start in
upon th construction of Its tunnel under the
North River, and the erection of its mammoth
terminal in West Thirty-fourth-st. The sub
way lines are approaching completion, and those
engaged In their construction say that another^
year will see trains running. The Manhattan
has just about completed the electrical equip
ment of its lines, with a result that trains of a
greater number of cars than formerly can be
run. and under shorter headway. The Pennsyl
vania Railroad now owns the Long Island Rail
road a factor in transportation in Brooklyn and
Long Island generally. The Pennsylvania also,
through the Widener-Elklns syndicate, controls
a large interest, if not. Indeed, the dominant
interest, In the Metropolitan Street Railway
Company. and has several representatives in the
board of directors of the Metropolitan Securities
Recently the question of handling passenger
traffic for distribution through the greater city
after arrival at the. terminals of the New-York
Central and the Pennsylvania has become
one of moment, and Interests controlling
these properties have studied the situation close
ly. Attention has been given not only to the
subway company and the Manhattan, but also
to the Metropolitan and the Brooklyn Rapid
Transit Company. So far as is known no de
cision has been reached as to what is best to
do. The whole Idea of the Pennsylvania-New-
York Central Interests so far. it is stated, has
b»en to Intrench themselves in these properties
to such an extent that they would be assured of
control when a plan should be formulated and
ready for adoption. As a result, it is said, in
terests identified with the New-York Central
and the Pennsylvania, acting in co-operation
with the Goulds, have been adding materially
to their holdings in the local tractions, with the
Idea in time of bringing about a consolidation,
amalgamation, traffic arrangement or agreement
of some kind which will be beneficial to all.
Just what shape this plan will take, it is de
clared, has not been determined upon yet: but
it is believed that the virtual control of all of
the local traction properties Is now centred in
the hands of a group of capitalists favorable to
th- Pennsylvania-New-York Central Interests
and that in the end the problem will be worked
out satisfactorily to these two great properties.
Whether or not all of the local railways will
be turned over to the two great steam railways
remains to be seen, it is indicated, however,
that the Interborough company may. in the
end become a holding company for all these
companies, and that It will then be found to

one of the best that ever wore the Yale uniform.
If indeed, it fell short of being the very best of
ail. The game was won by straight, hard foot
ball, that left not the shadow of a doubt of
gale's superiority. Only twice did Harvard
dangerously threaten to score. Once was In
the first half. when, with the score 12 to 0
against them, the wearers of the Crimson made
a sterling and persistent brace by means of
which they managed to buck the ball clear from
their own 00-yard line to Yale's 8-yard mark
only to lose It by a fatal fumble, apparently
made by Marshall, the quarterback. The second
time when Harvard had a chance to score was
In the second half, when, with the score IS to 0
against them, the Cambridge players l!ne<l up
to stop Yale's forwards from breaking through
in time to prevent Marshall from kicking a goal
from the field. The quarterback fell back to the
.15-yard mark, when he made ready to try. and
made a clever trial, well guarded by his mates
but the try went a bit wide, and he missed th*
goal by about a yard. That was as near as
Harvard came to scoring.
Two of Yale's touchdowns were made in th»
first half, and two in the second, and. had M«t
calf not missed the try for the fourth goal th*
score would have been 24 to 0. There was no
denying that, for some reason, the great mass of
Harvard undergraduates and alumni who trav
elled many miles to flaunt the Crimson on Yale
field were firmly persuaded that their players
had more than a good chance to win. Indeed,
it was freely prophesied on the Harvard side of
the field before the game that the Cambridge
eleven was the equal of the team that downed
the Blue so easily las. fall on Soldiers' Field.
Everybody knew that if this were true one of
the greatest football' struggles in the history of
the gam* was about to be witnessed, for Yal«
men who knew what was going on made no
secret of the fact that the New-Haven aggre
gation was one of the strongest in Yale's rec
ord. The result showed that the followers of
Harvard had In some way been induced to over
estimate most egrregiously the strength of their
representatives. When the melancholy showing
of the Cambridge eleven in the Dartmouth game
was referred to before yesterday's game. Har
vard men nodded knowingly and remarked:
"Ah. do you really think Harvard is as bad as
that? See how easily we pulled th* game out
of the rue when we had to."
But when every allowance has been made, and
when it has been admitted that every Harvard
man did the best he knew how, and fought man
fully and desperately on in the face of almost
certain defeat, it has to be stated that Yale out
classed her opponent almost from the first blast
of the referee's whistle. The Crimson team
made a good stand against the herculean Un
opposed to It In the first half, and once bucked
the leather down the gridiron for more than fifty
yards without giving It up. but for the most part
the Harvard rushers could make little impres

made many yards by line plunging, and was
easily the star of the Cambridge eleven. He
started like a shot, and hit 'h- line hard "and so
low that he seemed almost to be on all four*.
But Kernan's brilliant runs did not corns off.
and Putnam performed so poorly that in th*
second half Hurley was substituted. There was.
too. an inexcusable amount of fumbling on th»
Harvard side, which dampened Crimson pros
pects more than once. Captain Kenan himself
was responsible for part of this sloppy handllnsr
of the ball, as he muffed Tale's quarterback kick
In the first half before any scoring had been
done, and thus allowed Yale to take the ball at
a point from which she subsequently hammered
it remorselessly over the line.
Another weakness of Harvard was ir. her ori«.

Campbell were nearly. If not qult^. as ajsasl as
