1'rom the moment the partr arrived, at 11
o'clock this morning, until tho last apeooh was
mado at the banquet to-night and tho lasteoho

was the most thoroughly onjorablo of tho

(lately old churches and publlo buildings, and
ill the material attractions for whtoh Savannah
I) well known. But a groat deal more was duo
to the programmo which Savannah's hoe
pltalltr had provided and which careful plan
ting carried out bo smoothly.
The President to-night is more than glad
that be took the advice of Sooretarr Alger, who
had stopped In Bavannah while visiting the
fcmttioru camps, and on his return urged the
President to Include this cttr in his tour. The
tltUensot Savannah also are glad that ho took
the Secretary's advlco, for thoy woro anxious to
ice him, as was shown by the fact that thou
rtnds stood In the stroots for more than three
hours waiting for his arrival. The entire oltr
pre him a welcome, and It is also understood
tint no business of serious account was trans
ited until the afternoon, although no holiday
had been agreed upon.
The eptolal train was late in coming in. but
Savannah wa just as happy, and tho Presi
dent's drive to tho Do Soto Hotel and then to
the army camps, where the troops stationed in
and around the city were to be reviewed, was
seized on for another of those demonstrations
which have mode President McElnley's trip
through the South a progress suoh as only a
Democratic candidate on a froo-sllrer platform
would reasonably expect. The drive gavo a
little illustration of tho war tho details of the
Presidential party had been looked after. In
that all the twenty carriages provided for the
guests and the Reception Commltteo were
drawn by white horses.
No place could have been better fitted for the
purposes of such a review as was held this
morning than the park which offered a parade
ground about four times as largo as the field at
West Point. When the President and review
ing party mounted the stand the soldiers could
be seen at rost far across the park, and tho
red-lined coats of the artillery, the gleam of
baronets and the moving masses of men as
they wheeled and fell Into line were a striking
rpectacle. There was not muoh oheering of
tie troops ; tho Bight was too fine.

teries B of the Fourth and D of the
Fifth Artillery. The heavy artillery marohed
as infantry. In the opinion of the revlewors
the blxth Missouri Regiment, without pre
vious military, training, showed the best drill.
President McKInley made an appreciated hit
when, ns the Third Nebraska came to tho
stand and Llout.-Col. Ylaqualn ascended the
steps to pay his respeots, he made Col. Vla
OAialn stand boside him to review his regiment.
The lfglment was the on formerly oom
niai'ileri by Col. Bryan, and its work called
forth praise The men were the huskiest in
"i, the review, and the regiment was not badly
drilled. Major-Gen. Keller was In command of
the troops, but as be took a place In the stand

Secretary Alger. Secretary Long nnd Post-master-Gcnoral
Smith spoke extemporane
ously and made felicitous addresses well In
accord with the momentous day they had en
joyed. Secretary Wilson, in conclusion, said:
"I speak of the vocation where the finest
physical development is combined with the
highest moral worth and puM to duty Is squared
with the word of God and the Declaration of
Independence. I speak of the nation's jury
men when factions rago and Its certain de
fenders In times of peril: of the nursery
ot statesmen nnd jurists, of warriors and
soholars. ot merchant princes and carrier
magnates. The old South reduced the fertil
ity of its fields for a century In producing raw
material for the factories of other sections and.
other nations. The new South Is diversifying
Its Industries, adding skill to field crops and
greater value to the product ot Its mines.
Great progress is being made to educate all Its
workers toward the Industries, and few sec
tions enuni it In this regard.
"The youngfnrmerof the South should study
soils rather than the dead languages: he
should learn of the plant In preference to
ancient history, and tho feeding of nnimals
before giving trial to belles lettres. The stud y
of the movement of moisture In tho soil will
pay better than tho study of oratory. Barnyard
poultry offers greater rewards for their Intelli
gent care than county office. The mutton
sheep pays moro for attention than State
heroes, while tho promise of a dairy loow is
Infinitely more certain of being kept than the
promise of hripnlness In Congressional life,"
Gen. Wheeler s speech was a brief tribute to
ten subject to which ho responded and moved
his hearers, who were mindful of tho Presi
dent's reference at Montgomery to the "little
General's daughter." deeply.
Tho President's speech was evidently made
for the purpose ot preparing his case for pre
sentation to the Senate and was punctuated by
storms of oomment In answers to the
questions he asked, and with applause at
every sentence. The uproar was wlldost
When he said, "Dewer and Merrltt took
the Philippines," and when he asked If It
were right to sond Dewer thore and Mer
rltt and his army to reinforce him, his
audience yelled "Yes I" "Tosl" times innumer
able. His conclusion was greoted with one of
the fiercest outbursts which his speeches have
regularly brought forth In tho last few days, and
a shout of " You'ro a wlnnerl" wasjthe lead for

A BUI Opening W ntlonal Soldiers' Ilomes to

Wabiusoton, Dee. 17. President McKlnley's
suggestion. In hlsspeechat Atlantaon Wednes

the whole country to unite with those of the
South In caring for tho Confedorato dead, has

Rlr William's Resignation Found the Itose-
beryltes Unprepared Campbell-Banner-
ronn and Herbert Asqulth as Candidates
for the leadership Lord Salisbury's Hint.
SpKJal CabU PtrpnUb (sThiBuw.
Lonsom, Deo. 17. The intrigues of tho Ilose
bory wing of tho Liberal party havo succeoded
in ousting Sir William Vernon Harcourt from
tho leadership of tho opposition In the Houso
ot Commons, but this has been easlor than it
will be for them to secure the nomination of
the successor thoy desire. Sir William's suddon
action having forced matters to an issue before
tho Roseboryltes were ready to enter into pos
session. Lord Itosobery, as hasotton been pointed out,
has been for a long time Informally devoting
himself to tho effort ot regaining tho position
oflcadorot the Liberal partr. Tho events of
last autumn favored him on account ot the
prominence ot foreign politics and tho Issuo ot
Imperialism, upon which questions Lord Itoso
bery would bo In touch with national senti
ment, but tho Liberal party has not rot found a
rallying point.
If LordTtosebory should bo forcod to assume
tho leadership now his task would bo as hope
less as when he nbandonod It.hcneo his faction
will unanimously counsel a postponement of
any settlement ot the leadership In the House
of Commons which will bo taken to indlcato
which Liberal faction Is dominant Conse
quently, there Is a strong opinion that Mr.
Henry Campbell-Bannerman will be annotnted,
on the prlnolple that ho will meet with the least
resistance. He is rich, easy-going and tactful,
and his personal popularity Is Indicated by the
fact that both parties were willing to elect hlra
to tho Speakership, which his colleagues In
the last Rosebory Cabinet prevented him from
accepting, as ho was regarded as Indispensable
to the conciliating elemont.
Herbert Asqulth Is. of course Lord Rose
bery's man. His prominence Is too well known
to need reference, but Harcourt, who Is the
most skilful parliamentarian of tho Liberals,
sitting as an active independent momber.could
attack tho Rosoberyltes through Asqulth with
suoh likelihood ot suocess as makes Asqulth's
appointment dangerous to his faction. Still, he
Is tho most likoly candidate after Campbell
Bannerman. Neither Grey nor Fowler can carry sufllolont
weight. If thero should be a dark horso in tho
running It will probably bo Horbert Glad
stone, who commands universal respect.
Meanwhile tho rehabilitation ot the Ltbora
party as a whole depends upon their finding1
some cry on which they will be ablo to go be
fore tho country as a united body.
Lord Salisbury, In addressing tho members
of tho Constitutional Club yesterday evening,
generously gavo them tho hint that an attack
on the House of Lords might servo this pur
pose. Premier Salisbury proceeded to defend
the peers In advance upon stereotyped linos.
The most interesting point in Salisbury's
speech was a compliment to ono of tho institu
tions ot the American Constitution, which Is
not often paid by self-satlsflod Englishmen.
Referring to the censure passed on him on ac
count ot his retloenoe as to foreign affairs. Lord
Salisbury pointed out that it was impossible to
take "the people" into his confidence without
taking every on else.
There axe numbers ot things that I would
gladly expose to the representatives of the
people of this country." said Lord Salisbury,
"if I could oxposo them without exposing
them also to every court In Europe. It Is a
great disadvantage. I fool tho want ot such an
Institution as the Committee on Foreign Rela
tions is to the United States of America. It is
Impossible for us In our Parliament to have
such nn Institution, but It must be of great ad
vantage for a Minister to be able to meet por
sonsnotofhls own political opinion and ex
plain to them the reasons for his action."
Stock Jobbing by Iron Companies May Re-
anlt In Opening n Mow aiarket.
Special Cablt DttpaUh lo Tnr But.
VreNNA, Dec. 17. A financial scandal In Aus
tria mar open a new market In Iron-ore prod
ucts to the world. At present there is a pro
hibitive dutr whloh has led to the formation ot
a trust, all tho iron mines In Austria falling
Into tho hands ot two companies, the Alpines
and the PragerEIsen Industrie Gesellschnft.
Tho leading financial Institution of Austria,
tho Credit Anstalt, entered into open partner
ship with the trust, doputlng directors in both
companies and receiving two ot the Pragor
directors on its own board.
In two rears the Alpines shares roso from 00
to 200 florins. The Pragers at a nominal
value ot 200 florins were quoted at 1,003 a
wook ago whon the amalgamation ot the com
panies was mootod. Thon tho sudden resig
nations of those directors who wore on the
boards of both companies and tho bank caused
a publlo sonsat'.on. Tho resignations wore ex
plained by the appearanco ot an inspired ar
ticle In tho mener, Alieni ltt. an offlolal or
gan of the Government, declaring that tho
resolution of the directors of the Prager Com
pany to refund 4,000,000 florins to Its share
holders was a Disco of jobbery. The Prager
shares wero threatened with erasure from the
official list of the Bourse or a reduction In the
duty on Iron " In order to break the pernicious
trust under which nearly every Industry using
Iron has been Buffering."
Shares began to fall heavily, and in order to
prevent this tho directors published an expla
nation that, the company having accumulated
In thirteen years a seorot reserve ot 12,000,000
florins, which was moro than the share capital,
they are now returning one-third of this, not
as profit but as a return ot the capital Invested.
Tho Government stigmatizes this as stock
watering aud jobbery. Tho Credit Anstalt Is
of tho samo opinion. Tho resolution to return
4,000,000 florins will certainly bo cancelled, but
the demands for a Toductlon of tho duty on
Iron nnd legal measures againat tho trust may,
nevertheless, prevail, resulting In the opening
of anew market.
The yearly output of iron ore in Austria,
apart irom Hungary, is 1.600,000 tons.

Lovdok, Deo. 17 It is said that Gen. Lord
Kitchener's Gordon Memorial College scheme
will not be put through without a protest,
which, howevor. will be utterly In vain, as the
money has already boen aubsoribed. As Is
well known. Gen. Kitchener absolutely refused
all entreaties to make tho collego a Christian
instl tutlou, saying that If tho cnllegs was to bo
of any practical value it must be not only uon
Christian, but actually Mussulman in Its con
stitution and teaching.
Gordon's sistor, it is now reported, Is about
to mako publlo a protest against any Institu
tion from which the Bible Is exoluded purport
ing to perpetuate the memory of hor illus
trious brother, who, above all things, was an
ardont Christian. She may bo dlssuadod from
making such a futile protest, but there Is in
dubitably a considerable number of peraons
who are unablo to see the absolute necessity
of Gen, Kitchener's resolve.

Identified as Mary Lupton Through Her
Former Husband, Who Han the Cnse la
the Papers-Doctors Think It Wns Hys
teria A Friend Takes tier from Hospital.
A woman kept walking up and down Broad
way jtiBt below Forty-second street after mid
night Friday. She soomod annoyed or fright
ened, and hor conduct was so In contrast with
that of tho womon who frequent thnt part ot
the town aftor dark unaccompanied by escorts
that sho attracted tho attention of a number ot
cabmen and other night owls. About 2 o'clock
sho wont into tho drug store nt Forty-first
Btroot and Broadway and asked to bo allowed
to tolophono. Tho clerk told hor tho wires
were out of order, and ho directed hor to tho
Metro pole.
At tho Metropolo sho asked tho boy to call up
Poltco Hoadquurtors. Ho did so, and sho be
gan talking to Night Operator Coughlln. She
wantod to know tf any women had beon re
ported missing. Coughlln swltchod hor on to
tho Bureau ot Information, whoro Roundsman
Brady took up tho 'phono.
"Havo any missing women beon reported
thero?" she asked him.
"Twoor three." he answored.
"Woll, has any ono Inquired for a woman
about 32 years old, tall and slender, with black
hair, blue eyes, sealskin nacque, rod silk wnlst,
black cloth skirt, and black hat trimmed with
ostrich plumes?" asked tho voice.
"Don't think so. ma'am," answored tho
roundsman. "Can you tell me tho name ?"
" I don't know hor namo," was tho reply, and
then followed a foolish laugh. "You seo I'm
tho woman and I can't remember what my
namo Is or whoro I llvo. Thought maybe you
could holp me."
The roundsman Buspcctod that OiIb was a
joke and advlsod her. If sho was really lost, to
come to Follco Headquarters.
"That's the funniest thing I ever heard of,"
he said. "Sho must havo been seeing the
sights It sho don't know her name and address.
She'll bo able to toll 'om fast enough when she
wakes up In tho morning."
Then the roundsman went on with his work,
not oxpoctlng to hoar any more of his forgetful
telophono acquaintance.
But the woman at tho other end of tho wire
left tho telophono box and wont straight out to
the street, whoro sho got Into a cnb.
"Drive me to Pollco Uoadquartors," sho said
to Frank Bourne, tho cabby.
Bourno was one ot those who had beon weigh
ing tho woman and wondering what was the
matter with her, and he concluded at her words
that sho had been robbed. It was after 3
o'clock when tho cab got to Headquartors. The
woman paid him $3.
" You needn't wait," sho said, as she wont up
the steps. The doorman dlrectod her to
Roundsman Brady, where she told her story.
Who she was or where she Ilvod she vowed
sho didn't know. She had lett hor home, sho
remembered, at lOo'clook in the morning to buy
Chrlstmns presents. She went to somo stores
In Twenty-third streot, and after that she
couldn't remember anything until midnight,
whon sho found herself in Broadway with most
of her Identity missing. She said she knew
thnt her maldon namo wns Smith, and that her
first nnmo was Mnrio. Sho had been married,
and had one child, Florence, who was 11 years
of nee. Florence had attended a boarding
school, but where It was she couldn't Bay.
An the woman wont on with her story she
became hysterical. She wept and bewallod her
fate. Bradv rang up an nmbulanco from St.
Vincont's Hospital. Dr. Slaloney came over
and the woman told him a little more, Sho re
membored having lived with nn uncle named
Cartwright on the west side. She thought he
had been connected with the Fire Department.
His first name she couldn't recall or whothor
or not ha was dend. Her husband, sho said,
was alive, hut she waB not living with him.
Ther woro divorced nine years ago.
Dr. Malonoy concluded that the woman wns
Buffering from a form of hysteria wlilch really
affected nor memory. He advised that sho go
to the hospital. Sho consented, and was put to
bed there In n private room. A sleeping potion
was administered and sho fell asleep.
At 7 o'clock In tho morning sho nwoke. She
seemed entirely rational, but there was still
the samo failure of memory. The sisters ot
tho hospital anil tho doctors plied her with
questions In the bono of nrousing her recol
lection, but without results. Thoy ex
amined her effects. On her purse, which
contained n number of large bills,
wero tho remains of a name. The
letters wero silver and read"M. F. ton,"
with savernl letters missing. What hnd ap
parently boon n name on tho binding of tho
skirt hnd been torn off and her other clothing
wa unmarked
About 10 o'clock she fell asleep and slept for
an hour. Whon sho awoke Dr. Malonoy ques
tioned hor again, but sho still seemed In the
dark. Sho recalled, howevor, that Inst Janu
ary she hnd somo pictures taken In a gal
lory on the south side of Twenty-third
street, botween Fifth nnd Sixth avenues.
It seemed strango to tho physicians
that such little Incidents as thee should re
main In hor mind nnd still her own nnmo be
missing. They woro beginning to wonder
whnt ther wore going to do with her when,
after the cnte had been reported in tho evening
newspapers, a mnn called to see lior. Ho wns,
perhaps 35 yenrs old, with a dnrk mustacho.
eyeglasses and good clothos. Ho told tho re
porters thnt ho did not know tho womnn.but that
just the snmo he'd guarantee that thoy would
never find out who sho wns When ho went up
utalra lie wrote his first namo on n card and
sent It to tho forgetful patient.
"She'll know who that Is." ho said to thp sis
ter who took tho card to the pntlent's room A
moment later tho sistor brought bnck word
that tho woman did not know tho man and re
fused to seo him.
" Well, then." ho said. " I'll go nwny and get
her child nnd bring her down here."
So he did. Hu returned nt 3:.(0 o'clock with
a girl about 11 years old. n pretty child In a rod
dress. They went upstair together and ro
