Columbus, Ohio, June 6.—A story Is In, circulation that Senator Foraker, work ing in the interest of the present cable companies owning lines to Porto Rico, so framed his Porto Rlcan bill as to prevent any new companies from securing a fran chise.

MORGAN'S HAW It Is Opened \Hospitably to Consolidated Shipbuilding and Steel Interests. Mlmw Ymfk Sun Bmmolml Mmrvlom New York, June 6. — Negotiations be tween the Cramp-Maxini-Viekers group of shipbuilders and stockholders of the Bethlehem steel works have been resumed, and the consolidation originally Snapped out has actually been arranged so far as is possible without the delivery of the stock. According to bank authorities the hitch in the proceedings was due to a de sire on the part of the Bethlehem man agement to get more for Its stock than Kuhn, Loeb & Co., and the Morton Trust company were willing to pay. These two banking concerns have had charge of the consolidation. It is understood that some concession has been made to the Beth lehem stockholders. More important than this announcement is the fact that the consolidation of the steel and ship building interests is merely preliminary to their absorption by the United States Steel Corporation. The same is true also of the consolidation of the other independent steel interests of Pennsylvania, including the Cambria Iron works and the Pennsylvania steel works. Within a twelvemonth every steel and Iron corporation of consequence in the country, including the Tennessee Goal and Iron company and the Colorado Coal and Iron company, will also be taken in if the plans of the promoters do not miscarry.

DR. NORTHROP CHIMES IN, TOO Telia of the Aspirations and Needs of the University—4O9 Kew Bachelors. The class of 1901 at the University of Minnesota graduated from the institution this morning. There were 409 candidates for bachelor degrees and about fifty for masters'. Tbese students, with the regents and faulty, assembled in front of the Library building at 9:30. They stood in a drizzling rain, the gusts of wind sadly disarranging the coiffures of the "co-eds," until President Northrop ap peared walking from his office with the regents as escorts. The University band then struck up the march, and the pro cession headed for the armory, where the exercises were held. The president Wfts attired in his Yale LL, D. robes and made an unusually Imposing figure on the rostrum. The gold tassel of the cap, a distinguished honor, stood out in con trast to the royal purple of the decorated gown. At 10 o'clock the exercises were opened with prayer. President Draper of the University of Illinois delivered the com mencement address. His words were marked by an enthusiasm and a sincerity that impressed the vast audience of 6,000 people.

His address, in part was as follows: President Draper's Address. When you invite a sister state university to . send her representative across an inter vening commonwealth, that he: may deliver the message to this culminating assemblage of the year in this splendid university of the " great, towering state of the ; northwest, you pay a compliment which claims her most grateful ' acknowledgements, and you impose a responsibility which she. would be glad to meet much more capably than she can. --: We had a conference at the University, of Illinois the other day between the presidents of ten state universities erected between and including Ohio , on the east . and Colorado on the west. Two others accustomed to meet with us were kept from doing so by the regret able illness (of • their', chief executives.

"I took her by the hand," he continued, "and*said: 'Poor Rosa, you are dead; ; I loved you and I could not have you, but no one else will get you now.' " A PHILIPPINE DEFICIT SUCH A THING IS LOOKED FOR One of tne Consequences of the In sular Decisions—Gen. Chaffee on Civil Government. Manila, June 6. —The fragmentary news received here of the Porto Rico decisions has caused apprehension that there will be such a deficit in the Philippine revenues that congress will need to make an ap propriation to meet it. Fears are also ex pressed as to the result of the application of jury trials and other features of the constitution not suited to the conditions of the Philippines. Importers are preparing claims for a refunding of the duties paid. Death to British Traitors JToMf York Sun Saactat Sarv/om London, June 6. —The Chronicle reiterates that five ex-officers and 100 mea «re in English jails for traitorous dealings with the Boers. Most of them were convicted of allowing arms and ammunition to reach the burghers. The officers belonged to the auxiliary forces. They were at first ordered to be shot, but Earl Roberts commuted their sentences to penal servitude for life, and the men's offense was altered t» being asleep on post. There have been such cases, according to the Chronicle, and General Kitchener has had the delinquents shot, returning them as having died from enteric fever. General Chaffee informed the corres pondent of the Associated Press that while he was not sure of the oriental's general capacity for self-government he favored the establishment of civil control in the Philippines at the earliest possible mo ment. He was in full sympathy with the commission's plan for native education and business advancement, because the United States interests and native inter ests lie in the same line. It seems certain that under a plain division of the civil and military authority Judge Taft and General Chaffee will colaborate admirably. Captain Algalago and his aide have been killed by Wray's command at Dousel, Al bay province. Reilly's battery has sailed for the United States on board the transport Packling. On account, it is reported, of the Porto Rico decisions the United States Philippine commissioners are inclined to postpone their proposed northern tour. They are somewhat nonplussed over the matter and are anxious to receive advices from Wash ington. Desperate Fi^ht With a Wolf Special to The Journal. Chippewa Falls, Wis., June 6.—FranTc J.
