PARADE ; THEN NO PARADE. m1lrs-corrin clash makes tbe demonstration uncertain. e Adit-Gen. I'orbln IVrmndfi the President to Reverse III" Order to Oen. Miles for !n Military slum Here Om. Mile Will Have III Inning To-Uay Protest Here. Washington. Bept. 12. There is a complete mix-up aa to a parade of the regulars In New York on Saturday next. Officially It has boon decided that there shall be no par.ule at all. but Oen. Miles Is still determined to make one more effort to give the people the opportunity to see the troopa and the troops the opportun ity of learning how thoroughly the people ap preciate their work. The doubt as to a parade I largely the re stilt of a oonfllct between Oen. Mllen and Adjt Oen. Corbln. The latter to-day got the Presi dent to forbid the parade or the Montauk troops. Thla left only the Forto Rloo troops for ,Jie demonstration. Gon. Miles Uien deoldod " that the 1,700 men of that returning expedi tion would make a very inadequate show and be stopped the fag end of the programme. Acting Secretary Mclklejohn npprovlng. Oen. Corbln talked with the President about the xpense and the danger to the health of the troops if u parade wero held. The President reversed his former orders to Oen. Miles as a result of this talk. Gon. Miles late to-night said that he had not ntirely given up hope that the parade would be held, although he feared It would never tn!." place. He said that he had received a teU'gram late this morning from CoU Oreen leaf. Chief Surgeon of the army that Is now at Montauk. stating!) hat the cavalry and artil lery troops at Camp Wikoff were In fine con--' dltlon and that these troops desired to march from Montauk Point to Long Island City and take part In the proposed parade. In the opin ion of the Chief Surgeon such a march would do the cavalry and artillery troops good. There are fi.000 oavalry at Montauk, and thoy would make a more imposing cavalry how than New York has seen, at least in re cent years. Gen. Miles added that he had learned that fully 50 per cent, of the troops of all branches Of the regular Barvice at Montauk were anx ious to parade in New York. The General said that he should visit the President to morrow for the purpose of showing to him the deapatehr-om Chief Surgeon Greenleat and lf' asking that the parade be ordered for next Saturday. The plans looking to a parade of troops were declared off after a long confer ence between the President. Acting Secretary M of War Melklejohn and Adjt-Gen. Corbln. The belief prevailed until the very last that the parade would he hold on next Saturday, as was arranged between the President and Gen. Miles two days ago, but unusual efforts were made to defeat tho project by Adjt-Gen. Cor bln, who, from the first, has been opposed to having the troops parade In New York. The arrangements made by the President and Oen. Miles on Saturday provided for the parade of the Porto Rico troops only, but It was believed that the arrangements would be made definite ly within two or three days to have at leant several regiments from Montauk Point partiol - s pate in the parade. The matter was discussed thoroughly at the White House this afternoon. Acting Secre tary Melklejohn and Gon. Corbln having con sulted with Oen. Miles before they left the War Department. The conference lasted three-quarters of an he ur, and during the con I -ultatlon Gen. Corbln steadily opposed the reo- 1 ommendation of Gen. Miles to have the pa- IB rude lake placo. At the close of the oonfer- ence it was announced that no parade would wJ be held. Irw It was very evident this afternoon that some i III personal feeling had been aroused and that V H the discussion regarding the plans for a uilli M ,Hr' demonstration In Now York had resolved 4 itself Into a controversy In the War Depart- 8VM inent. lleluctantly Ucn. Miles late this after noon decided that Inasmuch as only about 1. 1.700 troops from Porto Hioo would be In New B York the last of this week and no troops from Montauk would be allowed to participate, it would be best to give up the parade altogether. PJf') Notwithstanding tho opinion expressed by Gen. Ty f Shatter that the Montauk regiments would 1avl ""' De ready to engage in any marching be lli) 'ure ct- arrangements have been made to Wmml remove the troops from the camp to their BSI stations in various parts of the country within 111 the next, week. Gen. Miles Is of the opinion HI that If the troops are able to be transported over such a distance they could easily par U tiojpate in a parade in New York. The War Department late this afternoon made public the following correspondence: New Yore, Sept 0. 1898. If Him.

Under the circumstances and owing to tho fact that there is but a very small force left, ap proximately about 1.700 men. I cannot advise that the parade now tako plane, very re spectfully. Nelson A.

A''ion A. Mi'n, Ifathinatim, D. C: "It seems Incredible that the victorious armies of Cuba and Porto llico should be dis solved without an opportunity to receive the popular plaudits awaiting them. It Is cruel to thorn and little encouragement for the future. Tim poople are not anxious to get rid of them. They want to sou them, and the Boldlcrs havo a right to see the people whose cause thoy have so wonderfully defended. Kegiments ordered to their objectivo points from Montauk must necessarily pass through this city. W hy not rest here over night? The proposition in a sim ple one. Our armories will quarter them all. "The line of march would not exceed three miles, on asphalt pavements, and abundant transportation would bo provided for those who are fatigued. Why not order the rough riders and other volunteers to he mustered out in New York Instead of Long Island ? Have no foar that the ilmlt of time will prevent proper arrangements for reception. The Mayorjs Committee arranged for welcome of Sampson s fleet In forty-eight hours. Kindly reply to Mayor's office, where we meet at 11 to-morrow and will remain in session until you have con ferred with President If you so desire. " Charles H. T. Collis. "Chairman Committee. In giving out the correspondence in Wash ington yesterday In reference to the parade the following reply to the President's telegram to Mayor Van tfyck was emitted: " Hen. ITilKiiia McKinlty. Praidtnt vf Of Vntted Stmtei. WuAi0(on, D. C: " Your telegram of this date received. The people and officials of tho city of New York will give a warm welcome to all troops that may parade here next Saturday, and they sin cerely regret that you find the conditions are such that all the regulars and volunteers cannot be then present. The citizens and official- of the city of New York extend to you and to the members of your Cabinet a cordial Invitation to be present ou that occasion as the guests of the city. Robert A. Van Wtck. Mayor." Col. Amos S. Kimball. Deputy Quartermaster General stationed here, went to Dedon Sunday night believing that he would have his hands full In the morning with the preparations for a parade of troops In New York next Saturday. He reached his office In the Army Building nt W o'clock yesterday morning. To all early In quiries about the parade Col. Kimball said there would be one and that he was awaiting the arrival from Washington of an officer sent by Oen. Miles to inspect camp sites In this vi cinity for the troops to nrrtve from Porto Rico. About noon Col. John Biddle. Chief of Volun teer Engineers, arrived from Washington and reported for orders to Col. Kimball. Bythat time Col. Kimball had learned that the West Shore Railroad was the lowest bidder for the transportation of a majority of the regi ments from Porto Kioo which were to parade. For that reason he suggested to Col. Biddle that he inspect ground on the heights of Wee hawken, with tb idea of locating the camp there. Col. Biddle started off, and soon after ward Gen. Miles wired the Deputy Quartermaster-General that Capt. V. 8. Foltz. First United States Cavalry, serving on the staff of the commanding General, was on his way to New York from Washington to assist Col. Biddle in his work. Thus the matter stood, when, at 2:30 o'clock. Col. Kimball received the following from Oen. Miles: " Washington. D. 0.. Sept. 12, 1808. " Col. Kimball. Army Building. .u Trk : "Montauk troops do not parade. Such a small part of Porto Rico troops remain, lean not advise their taking part in the parade. Do not think parade will be ordered. "Miles, Major-Oeneral Commanding." This was a facer and Col. Kimball didn't know what to maka of It at first. Finally he realized that there was to be no parade. The positive order he had received on Saturday, however, bad not been revoked. He concluded, therefore, to await developments. About 5 o'clock the following despatch came from Col. J. 0. Gllmore. Gen. Miles' Adjutant-General: " Wabhinoton. D. 0.. Sept. 12. 1808. "Col. Kimball, Army Bui ainy, Ano fork: "Parade of Porto Rico troops suspended. Bend Foltz back to Washington. By order ot Major-Gen. Miles. Oilmokk." This despatch didn't say definitely that the Porto Rico troops would not parade. There fore, when Col. Kim ball left his office, he didn't know for sure whether there w lid be a parade or not. He simply said: "I take It there will be no parade. For more definite information you must look to Washington." Acting Secretary Melklejohn to-night de nied the statement which, he said, had been published repeatedly that the Long Island Railroad bud an exoluslvu contract for transporting at a Axed price troops to and from Camp Wikoff. and that If transported in any other manner the company could, under the contract, recover the price agreed. The ques tions, he said, were unwarranted, and absolutely without proof. He made public the following proposal from W. H Bald win. Jr.. President Long Island Railroad Com pany, to the War Department at the time Mon tauk Point was selected as a site for a camp; "This proposition to the Government is made lupon the following condition, which I think reasonable and proper In view of the great concession in rates quoted and the large expenditures necessary to provide the facilitlios required, viz.: The military authorities to agree that they will not contraot with or employ any other car rier for transportation facilities between Mon tauk. New York or Long Ihluu-1 points and that no vessel owned or controlled by pri vate Individuals or corporations shall be permitted to land at or use the present or any future docks for passenger or freltrht to or from New York or Long Island points without the permission of the railroad comuany.it being, however, under stood that any Government transports or vcs.-els may discharge and load troops or supplies at such docks, and that any vcsbels may take or discharge passenger from or to other points than New York or Long Island with the permission of the military au thorities." As further evidence that the Government was undor no obligations to H-nd tioojis by rail, the Acting tiecretary said he had ordered all available transports at New York to proceed to Montuuk Point and wait there for troops that had been ordered to their bonier.. These vessels were the Chester, Berlin. Mississippi. Mobile and Roumanla. The large bodies of soldleis to leave the camp Dcfoto the end of the week would cause absoluto congestion on the railroad if they were sent that way. as it was absolutely Impossible to handle tliuin on a single-truck road The transports will be at Montuuk to-morrow morning ami ui-miigeinents have been made forthe em barkation of such of the regiments us are ready to leave then.

The consternation and indignation felt in England and on the Con tinent at the murdor of the Empress of Austria grow upon a better realization of tho full Im port of the act of the assassin. This afternoon's newspapers Join the morning editions In a great outcry against Anarchists, and point to the necessity of resorting to the moat draatlo measures to stamp them out. All of the papers agree that no mercy should bo shown to them. The Pall Mall Oautlt save: "The Empres has not died In vain. If her murder becomes the means of awakening the civilized Governments to tho necessity of more adequate precautions against tho olan to which the murderer belongs. Anarchism Is International, and If It Is to be conquered it must be met by International or ganization to suppress It." United States Ambassador Hay and Secretary White called at the Austrian Embassy to-day to express their condolences at the murder of the Empress. Berlin. Sept. 12. Herr Got has signified hi Intention to propose in the Reichstag tho adop tion of International measures for the repres sion of Anarchists. The evening newspapers discuss the question of International repression of AnarohUta with much unanimity In favor of the scheme. The ftt declares that Anarchists do not do serve to be treated like men. The Zritung asks that all Governments undertake to expel under escort to the country of his origin every avowed Anarchist. The Liberal journals, on the other hand, eon tent themselves with deploring the reactionary wave which the crime of the Geneva assassin will produce. The Votehe Zrituna expresses hope that tha endeavors to limit Switzerland's right of asylum will not be successful. The Brtchtanxriger publishes the official ex pressions of condolence. The flags on all the publio buildings and a large number of private houses In the olty are at half-mast to-day. and thousands of persons have visited the Austrian Embassy and signed the register as an expression of their sympa thy. A conference between the Embassy and the Court Chamberlain will beheld this even ing to arrange the details of a funeral service in honor of the Austrian Empress in St. Hed wlg's Church. Geneva. Bept. 12. Tha body of tho Empress, robed In white, has been placed in a triple coffin lined with a profusion of white satin. Near the bier is a prle-deux. upon which are a rosary and a cross. The floor Is covered with a black carpet with flakes of silver, and the walls aie draped with blaok relieved by silver stars. Nuns sent by the Bishop of Fribourg kneel around the coffin. A visitor to the death chamber says that the body Is dressed in black and white silk. The features are scarcely visible. The coffin Is placed in a eloping position, with a white net cover over it Tha' face has undergone a slight change aa a result of the embalming, but will resume Its normal appearance in a tew hours. The net cover bears the Inscription in French, "Repose in Peace," in embroidered letters. The hands are placed close to the aides. In one is a oruolflx and in the other a crown of roses. The beautiful hair of the dead Empress. whloh was ao universally admired. Is dressed just as in life. Sweet smelling flowers are tastefully strewn about the body, and exotic plants and palm branches are placed around the coffin. A score of large wax tapers surround the whole, while a three branched chandelier of eleotrlo lights, cov ered with crepe, hang from the celling. It is difficult to realize that there reposes all that remains ot the high spirited, great hearted lady who shared the throne of the Hapsburgs. The rooms adjoining the one in which tho body Ilea are filled with wreaths, most ot whloh are tied with red and yellow and yellow and black ribbons. The post-mortem examination has proved that the blow of the assassin broke the fourth rib. the weapon piercing the lung and the left side of the heart -and penetrating three and one-third Inches. The fact that the Empress was able to walk to the steamer after being stabbed Is explained by the doctors as being due to tha smallness ot the wound, which was only a sixth or an Inch in width. The assassin has written from his oell to the editor of a Nap' i newspaper asking him to deny that his ao was caused by stress of pov erty or hunger. Ho added: " W must make an end of every ruler, not only sovereign, but Ministers and all who wish to enslave the people." The assassin was arraigned before a mag istrate to-day and subjected to a lengthy ex amination. He adhered to his statement that he had no accomplices. The assassin told one of his keepers this morning that he struck the Empress one blow. whloh was delivered with great violenoe and In a downward direction. He became wildly ex cited during the night and shouted anarchist songs until he was exhausted. He also In dulged In tirades against society and exulta tions over his crime. He is closely watched to prevent his committing suicide. The assassin has expressed his regret that capital punishment is not inflicted In Switzer land. Probably lifelong Imprisonment pre sents to him a loss pleasant prospect than the notoriety of the scaffold. The Empress did not havo the usual police protection, and this fact was due to her own desire. At Vain her Majesty asked the author ities not to take any police precautions for her sufetr ami Is quoted as saying: " A woman needs no protection, even though she be an Empress." The great publio demonstration organized by the Swiss Federal Council this morning was a most Imposing affair. The famous Pig bell of tho Cathedral of La Clemence pealed at 11:30 o'olock, when the procession began to pass the Hotel lluau-Illvage. First enme a squad of gendarmes with reversed arms. They were followed by four hulsslers with cocked hats and wearing cloaks half red and half yellow, bearing a mace covered with crape. Next oame tho members of the Geneva Oovernmeut, headed by President Oavard and followed by civilians, members of the Legislature, delegates from forty-seven communosaml cantons, depu tations from the universities, the. foreign Con suls ami the general publio. The procession occupied over an hour in passing tho hotel. Km 1 1 head was uncovered. Order was kept by firemen, who wore armlets of red and yellow. A French commercial traveller named Thls t, who saw a part of the tragedy, relates that he hud gone on board the steamer with a party of friends and stood talking with the Captain when u lady caiiic aboard, walking with great difficulty Thlsset says he had no idea whoshe was, but he supported her across the deck and seated her ou a bench. The lady opened lier eyes as she sank upon the bench and gae him a look of gratitude, but did not sp.-uW . He then left the boat and returned to the Hotel Beau Rlvage, where he afterward leuriicd that the lady he had assisted was the Empress of I Austria. 1A large number of Anarchist have been ar rested here and at lausano. Bbjuue. fswitaeriand. Hept. U. -The J7dral Council has decided to attend In a body the ceremonies of blessing the remabis of the Em press of Austria, wh oh will take place at Geneva on Tuesday. The message to the Bwlsa Federal Conncil conveying the thanks of tha Emperor of Aus tria was as follows: " I am deeply touched by the deep sympathy you have expressed in so warm a manner. I thank the Federal Counoll and the whole peo ple from the bottom of my heart for their par ticipation In tho bitter sorrow Whloh an In sorutable decree of Providence has brought upon me." Vienna, Sept. 12,-rreparatlona for the fu neral of tho Empress Elizabeth are progressing rapidly. Tho health of the Emperor has not been shaken by tho terrible strain ha has undergone. The display of mourning decorations is already welt advanced. The principal thor oughfares will bo draped with black. All were moved who witnessed the meeting of the Emperorand his youngest daughter, the Archduchess Marie Valeria, at Schoonbrunn yesterday. They remained in each other's arms sobbing for several minutes. Tho stupor which had overcome the popu lace since the nows of the murder of the Em press changed to-day to a desire to know more of the tragedy. Tho nowspaper offices were besieged to secure copies of the afternoon newspapers, and In the public squares and ooffee rooms and In front of tho Opora House and the Town Halt newspapers wero read aloud to tho assembled crowds. The people snatched papers from the hands of the newsboys and paid any prioe demanded in their eagerness to learn the details. Nowhere was hoard a loudly spoken word. Even the newspaper hawkers refrained from crying out their extra editions. The general silence seemed an acknowledgment ot the nation's profound sorrow. The excitement of the lower classes was directed against tho Italian workingmen who are employed in the construction of the Met ropolitan Railroad and on the publio buildings and works on the Danube. These men wore Insulted and threatened openly in the streets by the Viennese, who demanded the expulsion of all Italians from Vienna. At Lalbach, thirty-five miles northeast of Trieste, to-day. Italian workmen were as saulted wherever found and chased out of the city. One Industrial concern dlsmtased all ot its Italian employees. The Italians attacked were briokmakers and other workmen, while the man attacking them were Slavonians. After being ohased from the oity the Italians returned, and their appear ance was the signal for a renewal of the trouble, whloh soon developed Into a formid able and bloody riot. Troops were called out to preserve order. One battalion occupied the houses to whloh tho Italians were compelled to flee, and protected them against further as sault Two other battalions were used to dis perse the rioters. TheEmperordoos not show himself In publio Those belonging to his Immediate circles say it is pathetlo to soe the aging sovereign, very pale and with traces of weeping, steeling himself to perform tho dally routine of State duties, and adding thereto his personal supervision of t lie arrangements for bringing the body of the Empress here, and the funeral correspondence whloh necessitates the services ot five secreta ries. His Majesty considers It his duty to person ally acknowledge tho oondolences from the heads of foreign States, but he dictates iu piles to the other senders of condolences. He is so busy that he has no time for brooding. Many of the relatives of Emperor arrived to day from various parts of the country. Each greeting resulted in renewed outbursts ot grief. His Majesty, however, tried in oachcaseto act as comforter, and would then return to his work. Tho Emporor has been much moved and con soled by the dignified sympathy expressed by the newspapers of the world, and he has caused an cxpressslon of his thanks to be published in tho official Fremdmblatt. The Emperor has reeolved a message of con dolence direct from President McKlnley, and also one from the American Minister at Vienna Mr. Tower, who is now in England on leave of absence. The flag of the American Legation Is draped with black. This Is an exception. The flags of the other legations are flying at half-mast. Emperor William and the King of Saxony will attend tho funeral. It is feared by some nearest tho Emperor that his outward calm will be short lived. His Majosty is badly shaken. His strong efforts at self-control aro as pitiful as they are noble. Mental prostration threatened at times to over power him. During divine Borvice, which ho attended In company with his daughters this morning, con vulsive sobs frequently escaped, despite his obvious efforts to restrain them. Very touching aro the scenes of affection with his daughters, who constantly accompany him whenever ho relaxes his occupations. In acknowledging their attentions he utters such brief sentences as: " I have not lost my confidence In Ood ana I will not Iobo It." At another time he said: " My nervos will bear it." More than ouoe when his natural feolings were strongest lie has said : "No one can have an Idea of the greatness of my loss." The outward display of grief here is compar atively small. It Is quite otherwise in Hungary. For every druped flag hero there are ten In Budapest, where thousands of women havo donned mourning. Every Hungarln newspaper la published with black borders. Many of them urge that Hun gary comfort the monarch by hastening an equitable arrangement with Austria. The Viennese newspapers are correctly sym pathetic, but with ouo or two exceptions they appear without mourning borders. Altogether the public expressions of grief are formal and lack the Hungarian warmth. Nevertheless, the Town Council has made hearty demonstration. Dr. Lueger. ths Burgo master, made a pathetlo address, concluding with the prayer that tho Almighty would grant courage and comfort to the Emperor aud make his present trial tho last. It cannot be denied that the ant 1- Italian out breaks are not baaed on patriotism. Tho tragedy Is mado the pretext for Indulg ing in tho perennial national racial jealousy. The authorities recoguize this and protect the Italians, while thuy treat the disturbers se verely. Tin i- s t l. Sept. 12. There were several dem onstrations against Italians in this city to-day. Crowds surged through the streets crying "Death to Italians!" and pursued every one known to be of that nationality. The mob sacked one Italian cile.aiid would have treated others In the same way but for the Interference of the police, who arrested fifty of the mob. Home, Sept. 12.

On July 5 the Boar left St. Michael for the far north. On tho 10th Point Hope was reached, and Lieut. Bertholf came on board looking hale and hearty after his winter sojourn on the beach. He reported that thirty-four deer which had strayed from the Laps' herd while crossing Kotzebuo Sound on the loe on the way to Point Barrow had been brought to Point Hope and that, although several had been killed for food, the herd had Increased by tho birth of fawns to forty-nine. After a short stay there the Bear proceeded north, with pleasant weather and little Ice. At 6 :30 A.M. on July 20. just north of Point Lny. a native canoe was seen putting out from the beach. It contained Capt. Sherman of the wrecked whaling steamer Orca, In charge of a party sent from Point Barrow several days before by Lieut. Jarvls with news of the state of affair at the Point and of tha loe conditions beyond Icy Cape. That afternoon the Bear's nortward progress was stopped by Impassable ice on Blossom Shoal, and she rcturnod to her anchorage under Point Lay. Capt. Sherman reported having stopped over night on hoard the steam whaler Betvidere at Sea Horse Islands while on his way down the coast. They had only ten days provisions on board. At Point Barrow provisions were getting low. and Lieut. Jarvls had planned to s-Mid parties down tho coast about the 25th to meet the Bear. He also reported that on July 3 the schooner Rosarlo had been crowded on the beach by tho ice and was a total wreck. On the 20h another attempt was made by tho Bear to pass the ioe barrlor, but without success, and It was deoldod to try to send pro visions by boat along tho beach to the Belvl- dere. On the 23d Lieut. Hamlet, three men and two natives were despatched In a native skin boat to make the attempt. Thoy reached tho Belvldero on the 2flth with twentv duys nrov isions. Leaving the Belvldere tho boat party reached Point Barrow In eight een hours after tho Bear's arrival there, having accomplished the journey in Ave and a half days. On the 20th the Boar worked past Blossom Shoals, and. It being Impossible to reach tho Belvidere on account of heavy ice. continued on her course to Point Barrow, arriving there at 6 A. M. of the 28th. the first ship of the season. There was a long ridge of grounded ice a half mile from shore and about a mile wide. The bear could not get inside this, so she was moored to tha outside edge of the ridge. Tho crows of the wrecked steamers Jesse H. Freeman, Orca, and Rosarlo were taken on board, and had the first square meal they had eaten for many days. The Ice threatening to swing in and nip them as it Had dono tho whalers, they were obliged to seek shelter inside the ground Ice. Later on tho samo day the Ice, opening up, allowed the Jeannette to steam away to a place of safety inside the ground Ice. but the Bear was still held In an iron grip. Only fifty yards of ice lay between the ship and the open water and a final effort was made to free tho ship by blasting and cutting. After six hours' hurd work the Bear steamed Into open water, taking on board thirteen men who had been sent to Cape Smith from the Bel vldere in the early winter to lighten the drain upon her provisions, and leaving coal and sup plies sufficient to last tho Newport, Fearless, and Jeannette until they should meet their tenders. The Bear then started west with the rescued whalers on board. Tho Newport, Fearless and Jeannette were shortly expected from the eastward, their light draught enabling them to follow nlong tho beach In open water Inside the grounded ioe. Soon after the steam whaler Jeannotto arrived. On the 30th. whilo still waiting for news of the ships to the oast, the pack loo lie gan to swell in rapidly against the out side of the grounded Ice. A place of comparative safety was found behind small points of ice, whero the Jeanetto and Bear could lay comfortably In the evont of a crush. On Aug. 3. after the Newport, Fearless and Jeannie had arrived and made fast to tho rounded lco the pressure became so great that le sides of the Bear, strong vessel though she is, began to spring, causing the engine room floor plates to bind. Preparations were at once made for abandoning tho vessel, if need be. In about an hour the pressure subsided some what, and by chopping the lco away from tho sides the chances of escaping were greutly In creased. Tho vessel remained iu this predica ment for thirteen days. During this period coal stores and provisions were trausisirted by sleds on the lea to the Newport, Peerless, and Jeannie. On Aug. 7 an effort was made to blast a channel through the loe to the open water, where tho Newport, Fear less, and Jeannie lay; but powder had but little effect upon Ice thirty feet thick, so the attempt was given up. On the 15th the loe opened up to within 100 yards of the Bear, and the Newport and Fear less wero enabled tn break through the ridge a tew miles to the southward and arrived abreast with tho Bear In open water. They worked on the outside of the Ice that was imprisoning the Jeannie and Bear, but the pack, threaten ing to swing iu and nip them also, they were oliligcd to seek shelter ins dis ths ground ice. On the 10th the Ice opening up still more allowed the Juannetto to steam away to a place of safety inside the ground loe, but the Bear was still held in an iron grip. Only fifty yards of ice lay between the ship and open water, and a final effort was made to free tho ship by blasting and cutting. After six hours' hard work the Bear steamed Into open wutor. The real start for home waa made on Aug. in. A stop waa mad at Point Hope on the 20th, whoro the sohooner Iiuise J. henney was found on the beach, where she had been wrecked the day belur. Hor officers and crew ware taken on board the Boar for transportation for Seattle. The Kenny had on board some Lapps sent up by Dr. Sheldon Jackson to go overland to Point Barrow, taking the Point Hope doer herd with thorn a far as Corwin Coal Mine, and then to bring the Point Barrow herd down, combine the two herds, and establish a new station at the mine. The Kenny also hud on board a year's supplies for the Kotzehue Sound Mission. A stop was made at Hotham Inlet to inform Missionary Robert Sama of his loss and to offer hi in passugu to Ht. Michscl. Having sufficient provisions to lust a year he declined tho offer. After stop ping at Cape Prluoe of Wale. Port Clarence Kings Island aud Point Roduey the Bear ar rived at St. Michael at 4 A. M. to-day. She will probably loave for 1'ialuaka to-morrow. $100,000 TO MROWX VStrBRSlTY. X Large Bequest In Prospect from the Kstat of ilia Lata Rowland Haiard. Pbacepale. R. I..

Our Plan Submitted Yesterday and the Span ish Plan Will Be Submitted To-Day. Sr-ciat CabU Dapakk to Tn Sun. Saw Joan, Porto Rloo. Sept. 12. The Span ish and American Peace Commissioners met In joint session at the palace at 10 o'clock this forenoon. Only the Commissioners, their secretaries and the sworn Interpreters wore present. The meeting of the commission lasted an hour and a half. The American Commission ers presented the plans of the American Gov ernment, as outlined In their Instructions, and these were discussed at length. The de tails of the plans will not be disclosed for the present. An agreement was reached that the Spanish Commissioners should submit their suggestions In writing to-morrow afternoon at 3 o'olock. The joint commission will meet "again on Wednesday morning, when the real negotia tions will begin. As the Spaniards have not disclosed their hand. It Is impossible to 'say what their plans are or what difficult ins will confront the Araerloan Commissioners. At this morning's conference, however, it devel oped pretty strongly that the Spaniards had no disposition to resist the immediate evacua tion of the island, but that many problems concerning the disposal of Government prop erty will eventually be raised. The discus sion to-day was entirely amicable. The steamer Evelyn arrived here this morn ing from New York with a general cargo of merchandise, to the great satisfaction of the San Juan morchants, many of the necessaries having been exhausted during the blockade. The eighteenth birthday of Princess Maria de las Mercedes, eldest sister of King Alfonso, was oelebrated here yesterday. The city was decorated with flags, banners, ha., and the American warships New Orleans and Cincin nati were dressed with Spanish flags and fired salutes of twenty-one guns morning, noon and night. Yesterday afternoon the Spanish Peace Com missioners paid calls of courtesy upon Ad miral Schley and Gen. Gordon at the Hotel Inglaterra and upon Gen. Brooke at Rio Pie dras. Reports submitted to Gen. Brooke by the various commanders show that 1 7 per cent of tho American army of 11,000 men In the Island of Porto Rico aro on tho slok list They aro mostly afflicted with typhoid malaria and diarrhoea. The death rate is small. WAR NOT OVRR TRT, HR THINKS. ;. Wheelar Look tor Wore Trouble with Spain Over tbe Philippine. Decatdb. Alo., Sept. 12. Just after tho funeral of his Bon, Naval Cadet Wheeler. Gen. Wheeler surprised a party of friends by de claring In his modest and characteristic man ner that he did not believe that the war be tween the United States and Spain had muled. There was sadness In his tone, and he never spoke more earnestly in his life. Said he: "No. gentlemen; 1 really do not believe that the fighting is over yet. This Spanish-American war is not one which Is to be settled as easily as some people are inclined to be lieve. I believe, as sincerely as I over be lieved anything, that this Government will have more trouble with Spain. The Spaniards never know when they are defeated, and thoy. that is the masses of the peoplo of Spain, are of the opinion that there was no need for their Government to have given up so soon. " Indeed," continued Oen. Wheeler, " Presi dent McKlnley himself is not at all sanguine of peace. He told me personally not a groat many hours ago that he had no faith that the Peaco Commission would bo able to come to satis factory terms with tho Spaniards. This belief on his part is based ou tho Philippine situation. " The situation In these islands, so far as It relates to tho settlement of peace, is a complete one. The Spanish Ministers contend that, us tin- battles at Manila and other parts of tho islands took placo subsenuent to the signing of the peace protocol, peace negotiation will not hold as far as they are concerned. " Spain will refuse to give up the Philippines, and of course," continued the Oeneral, em phasizing his last words. " we cannot think of such a thing as giving them up. and will not. President MoKlnley is deeply and gravely con cerned over the situation, and is spending sleepless nights over it." Speaking in reference to the death of his son, Gen. Wheeler said: "Of course it completely unnerved me and was a great blow, but I am somowhat reconciled to my boy's loss now. It would not have been so hard to give him up had he met a soldier's death, but his taking away by drowning Is mitigated by the belief that he died the death of a true hero in at tempting to save the life of a companion. "I am going back to duty now, feeling as though I had been on a furlough, and really expect to put on my fighting clothes and go to the front again." ANXIOUS TO JOIN VEWET.

Sept, 12.-Thc State eleo tlon in Maine to-day was quiet and the vota light all over the State. The shrinkage In tha towns hca-. I from is ono-half compared with the last Presidential election and one-third compared with tho election of 1MU. The He publican loss is greater than the Domocratlo. One hundred and fifty towns give Powers (Iter.). 23.002; Lord (Dem.). 12.242: scattering, 1.207. Republican plurality. 11.420. Tha same towns in 1804 gave Cleaves (llep.t. :io. 160;: Johnson (Dem.). 12.17ft; scattering. 3.094. Republloan plurality. 17.985. From return reoelved up to midnight It la estimated that the Republloan plurality In tha State on the vote for Governor will be between. 20.000 and 25.000. This is about half tha plurality reoelved by Gov. Powers two years a: o. and about two-thirds tho plurality of 1804. In view of the almost'entlre absence of speechmaking during the campaign and tha limited amount of work devoted to the can vass by the various committees, these figures ought to bo satisfactory to the Republican managers. Tbe Democrats were better organised than two years ago. but their committees were without moans to carry on an aggressive warfare. The shrinkage ot their vote waa pro portionately less than that of the Republicans. All the oitles of the State were carried by the Republicans exoept Biddeford. Saeo and Lewiston. Saeo Is the home of the Democrat ic Gubernatorial candidate. Samuel L. lord. It was for a quarter of a century a Republloan stronghold. Biddeford has lately been held by the Republicans, but local Issues oaused a general ahako-up there. One Republican and one Democratio candidate for Representative to the Legislature In Biddeford were elected, all the Republloan nominees for Senators were elected. The Democrats make a gain of eight Representatives. The constitutional amendment providing for a popular vote for United States Senator in cose of a vacancy by death or otherwise waa carried, the vote being very light. Congressman Thomas B. Reed's vote ex ceeds the vote for Gov. Powers in the First dis trict The district comprises Cumberland and York counties. His plurality is estimated at 4.800. of which about 2.300 is furnished In York county. The vote in 189 towns reported up to 1 A. M. indicates a total Republican vote of 53,052; Democratic. 39,676; scattering. 3.100; Repub lican plurality, 23,070. As the percentage of shrinkage has been gradually increasing as the late returns come in, the actual Republican plurality will probably be not more than 22,-500. JVHOK PJtOCTX LYNCIIEO.

All of them then opened upon him and flllod his body with bullets. No attempt was made bv Judge Proutv to prosecute the murderers and the negroes sent him a threat to lynch hlra unless he took Immediate notion.

On Sunday a cron-d of negroes rode out to Judge Prouty's homo and left word with his family that unless the cowboys wero arrested nt once they would avenge their comrade's murder by murder.
