BOCKEFELLER IS KING OF MONEY He Has Succeeded Morgan as the Chief Financier of the Country. Heport Says That He Will Soon Con trol the New York Cen tral Road. Big Oil Magnate Also Is Heavily In- . terested in the Pennsylvania System. Hew York Sun Speoial Service. Chicago, Aug. 12.-Walter Wellrnan a New York special to the Record-Herald, Bays, among other things: "John D Rockefeller is the world s greatest financier J. Plerpont Morgan Is the greatest speculator and promoter. This is a judgment I have heard from the lips of a good many men of affairs in the financial district. In fact, it has be come a common saying in Wall street and In the clubs and other places where w an street men congregate. Perhaps nothing could better illustrate in a smgle sentence the changes which have been taking place in the financial world during the last year. The great slump in values, the bursting of the wa tered stock and fictitious value boom has gradually but surely wrought a transfor mation in the relations of individuals to properties and the sources of power, and this transformation has as its most im portant and probably its most Interesting result the classification of Rockefeller and Morgan which is now upon the tip of the tongue in Wall street. Rockefeller Is King. John D. Rockefeller is now looked upon by almost every one as the king of Amer ican finance and railroading. Mr. Morgan is in a second but still a very high place. During the last year the two men have virtually ex changed positions. Of course, it would be trite to say that for a long time both have been in the very front rankwith out doubt the two most powerful men in the country. The change appears here: Whereas, Mr. Rockefeller was formerly comparatively inactive, content to remain In the background, a tremendous force in his control of great capital and big banks, but not personally very active in the man agement of railroad properties and dicta tion of policies, he is now enlarging and broadening his activity. On the other hand, Mr. Morgan, for sev eral years a marvel of activityhis finger In almost every big piehimself behind nearly all the big combinations and reor ganizationsis now comparatively inac tive, well nigh idle, taking care of what he has rather than reaching out for more worlds to conquer. Will Control New York Central. There is no longer any doubt that if Mr. .Rockefeller is not already virtually In control of the New York Central rail-i way, he soon will be. Men who possess the very best sources of information tely me it will not take more than a year oif, BO for the occupation of the Vanderbilt family and the perihelion of the Rocke fellers In New York Central to become visible to the naked eye of all beholders. This does not mean, of course, that Rockefeller is to own a majority of the stock of that company, for the Vander bllts have not owned a majority for many years. But it does mean, unless my in formants are mistaken, that the Rocke fellers are to take the places of the Van derbllts as the dominant personal factors In the control of that great property. In addition to this, it is clear that Mr. Rockefeller is acquiring large interests in Pennsylvania. Just how much New York Central, Pennsylvania and other standard railway shares Mr. Rockefeller has picked up during the era of low prices no one knows, nor is any one likely to know till the annual meetings are held and stock Is voted by the registered owners. But It is pretty clear that while Mr. Rocke feller is far from being In control of Penn sylvania, and probably never will be in control, he is gradually acquiring an in trest which will give him a voice in the management of that, the greatest railway system in the world. BUYS UNITED STATES STEEL Morgan Plans to Retire $200,000,000 Worth of Stock. New York, Aug. 12.The heavy buying of United States Steel common stock by A. A. Housman & Co., and other brokers who are known to act for J. P. Morgan & Co. and the United States Steel corpora tion has attracted a great deal of atten tion in Wall street lately. The plan is said to be to retire $200,000,000 of the common stock, if it can be bought at an average price of $22. The retirement of $200,000,000 worth of the stock at a cost of only $44,000,000 would.save the company $8,000,000 a year in dividends and would reduce the capital stock of the corporation outstanding to about $618,000,000 instead of $1,018,000,000. REESTABLISH CANTEEN Secretary Root of the War Depart ment Determines to Follow This Course. New York Sun Speoial Service. Washington, Aug. 12.Secretary Root has practically decided to recommend the re establlshment of the army canteen. This will be gratifying news to soldiers and their friends. There has been considerable dissat isfaction in the ranks because of the abolition of the canteen. Practically every officer in the army and all the officials of the war department have concluded after a practical test that a mis take was made in abolishing it as the army has been injured by so doing. As a result of that action a large number of vile saloons have sprung into existence in the vicinity of army posts, and drunkennesss has increased in the army. Tho number of desertions also have increased. There are on file In the war department con fidential reports from officers of the army which show the bad results of closing the canteen. General Miles is the most noted officer who is against the re-establishment, but the facts presented by officers in the field have out weighed his recommendations.

"HP, j^wPP'cr*'5' ~ ^T^ GROYER TO HUNT IN MINNESOTA Chickens and Ducks May Be Gunned For, and Possibly Some thing Else. Tho His Proposed Trip Is Said to Have "No Political Sig nificance." Ex-President Expected to Visit Min nesota After Speech in Chi cago, Oct. 14. in Grover Cleveland, sometime president of the United States, nimrod extraordinary, and lightning rod agent possibly, has been invited to visit the state on a hunt ing trip in the latter part of October, and has signified his willingness to come. The great leader of the eastern demo crats has done much hunting of various kinds and at various places in his time, but has never had an opportunity to hunt over Minnesota stubbles and sloughs. When it was announced that he had ac cepted the invitation of James H. Eckels to address the Commercial club of Chi cago Oct. 14, friends in Minneapolis at once tendered him an invitation to con tinue his western tour into Minnesota. It was pointed out to him that Minne sota is exceedingly rich in hunting pos sibilities that the stubble fields are full of fat chickens and that the web-footed wild fowl haunts the prairie lakes in abundance. It was also urged upon the former president that he had never tried his prowess in these, to him, virgin fields. President Cleveland replied that he would be more than pleased to visit Min nesota on a hunting trip if he could so arrange his affairs, and he intimated that he would try pretty hard so to fix things that he could arrange his affairs and come. This prospective visit of the great Gro ver will attract more than pasing atten tion because, while he has declared that there will be nothing political about his Chicago speech or his entire western trip, there is a suspicion that while he may hunt for prairie chickens and ducks, with his accustomed enthusiasm, he may, possibly, after a good day's sport in the field, yield to temptation and put his ear to the ground. But there is nothing in the invitation which has been extended to Former Pres ident Cleveland which requires him to do this. HE ACCUSES A PRIEST Connecticut Man Sues Father Sen esac for Alienating the Affec tions of His Wife. . New York Sun Speoial Service ,.. Waterbury, Conn., Aug. 12.Louis Strucks has brought suit against the Rev. Joseph F. Senesac, pastor of St. Anne's Roman Catho lic church in this city, for $10,000. Strucks charges Father Senesac with alienating the affections of hlB wife. Mrs. Strucks is a pretty woman of 26. Her husband is nearly 50. Father Senesac is a handsome man of 38. Strucks in his com plaint says his wife first met the priest at a church fair in Hartford In the winter of 1900. He declares that the wrong doing of the pair began Aug. 1, 1900, and has con tinued up to the present time. He says that when he first discovered it he drove his wife from his home and started out to shoot the priest. Friends who learned of his plan, prevented the shooting. He adds that he brings suit only In order that Father Senesac may be exposed and punished. Father Senesac, who comes of an old Montreal family and who has made several pilgrimages to Rome, was declared not at home when a reporter called at the parochial residence this afternoon. His intimate friends in the parish declared that the charges were untrue. BONES OF A MASTODON They Are Unearthed in St. Louis Further and Important Finds Are Expected. New York Sun Special Service. St. Louis, Aug. 12.Bones which scientists agree are undoubtedly parts of the skeletons of mastodons were unearthed yesterday In the heart of St. Louis. Workmen digging for a great overflow sewer to be forty feet below the surface, found the bones. Large pieces of trees almost changed into bituminous coal by the slow process of nature had been unearthed and then the picks of the' laborers 6truck some hard substance which puzzled them. Foreman Talt ordered the workers to stop while he descended into the ditch to Investigate. By carefully dis lodging the dirt on the other side of the hole he found several large bones imbedded in the clay. These bones composed the petri fied Jaw of some enormous prehistoric ani mal.

The spot where the bones were exposed Is 100 yards south of the Tower Grove station. IT IS NOT A BATH TUB Chicago "U" Officials Post Notice Forbidding Swimming in the New Aquarium.

Scores John Temple Graves of Geor gia for His Speech Delivered Yesterday. Chautauqua, N. Y., Aug. 12.Rev. Dr. Dean Richmond Rabbitt, rector of the Church of Epiphany, Brooklyn, answered John Temple Graves of Georgia in an ad dress to-day at the Chautauqua assembly on lynchings and mobs from an American, standpoint. He contrasted the view of lynching justified by Graves, with what he called the "more general and better view of the American nation" and showed the prevalence and increasing violence of the mob spirit, its tendency to leap the color line and to lynch for minor offenses than rape and murder. He dwelt upon the psychology of the mob and gave the Wilmington lynching of the negro White as typical and denounced the officials who refused to protect any ********** prisoner of any oolor or for any crime. He paid a tribute to law and order as represented in Governor Durbin and Gov ernor Yates of Indiana and Illinois, re spectively, and upheld President Roose velt in his recent letter on lynching. Lynchers, the speaker declared, were plain, brutal, savage murderers* should be treated as such by the authorities and by all worthy to wear the name of Ameri can citizens1. "More morality, less prejudice, stricter law quickly applied, fair play to negro and white and both the race question and the mob problem will assume less dangerous dimensions," said Dr. Babbitt in conclu sion.

Hew York Sun Special Berries. New York, Aug. 12.Monsiegnor Fal conie, the apostolic delegate to the United States, arrived last night. When he read the cable dispatches from Rome, saying that a priest of the Cincinnati archdiocese, who purported to voice the sentiments of the Catholic clergy of America, had pe titioned Plum X to remove the American church from the misionary government and In its place establish canon law such as exists in European countries, he said: "I cannot believe' that any American priest has gone to Rome with the proper authority to make such a petition and even granting that such a petition should be made, it certainly would not be de sirable for America under present con dition, nor do $ believe it Is the wish of the hierarchy and the clergy." Mgr. Falconi was asked how the church in America would be affected If taken from the control of the propaganda and put under the direct rule of the pope. "To abolish the present system would immediately be to establish canon law," he replied. "This would mean that all pastors would become irremovable from the date of this change. It would place a check upon all the local ecclesiastical authority would necessitate direct com munication with the "Vatican in small mat ters which can now be disposed of by the metropolitans of their suffrages. Such action would in many cases cause delays, the inconvenience of whioh Is not felt in countries nearer .to Rome." It was said to-day that the abolition of the present system and the establish ment of direct communication with the throne would cost the church in this coun try an additional tax of nearly $2,000,000 a year.

Constantinople, Aug. 12.One hundred and fifty revolutionists were killed in the fighting at Sorovitch, Aug. 8, according to official reports. Dispatches which have been communi cated to Russian and Austrian embassies, state that the insurrectionary movement Is increasing daily. Hilmi Pasha, inspec tor general of the sultan's Macedonian reforms, reports that the young men in all the Bulgarian villages are fleeing to the mountains to join the insurgent bands. Many among the Bulgarian peasantry wished to remain neutral but were com pelled by threats to help the revolutionary committees. Hussein Hilmi Pasha, who has been ap pointed Vali of Manastir, reports a similar spread of the insurrectionary movement in the vilayet of Salonica, where, he says the committees are resolved on the same campaign of massacre, incendiarism and pillage as in the vilayet of Monastir.

York Sun Special Service. New Orleans, La., Aug. 12.The murder of Antonio Luciano by Sparo has revived the fear of the Mafia among the Sicilians of this city who believe that Sparo was employed by that society to commit the murder. So terrified are they that Luciano's friends were afraid to attend his funeral and some of them reported that they had been threatened with death if they showed any respect for the mur dered man. There being no Italians present, altho Luciano had many friends among the peo ple, the police and police reporters had to act as pallbearers. As the funeral cortege passed the prison near which Luciano lived, his murderer, Sparo, poked his head from the window of his cell and greeted the party iwth roars of laughter. He was removed, as soon as possible by one of the deputy sheriffs. The fact that Sparo has an abundance of money for his defense has convinced the Italians that he has the backing of a society which they believe is the Mafia and which is well supplied with money. All the circumstances leave little doubt that Sparo was hired as a bravo to kill .Luciano. The "case has caused a very panioky feeling among the poorer Italians. The district attorney has been requested by the press to rush the prosecution of Sparo and prevent the vendetta getting the strength it possessed in New Orleans before the parish prison lynching of 1891 and he has promised to do so.

FEAR A MASSACRE Mussulmans Are Gathering at Uskub Christians Terrorized. Sofia, Bulgaria, Aug. 12.The Bulgar ian foreign office has received disquiet ing news from its agent at Uskub. The Mussulmans forces were gathering in the mosques and it is feared that a massacre of the Christians is impending. Officials here express the belief that the interven tion of the powers alone can prevent a disaster. The most astonishing feature of the situation here is the remarkable quiet with which the people have received the news of the fresh rising in Macedonia. The whole outbreak came as a great sur prise even to the local revolutionary com mittees which were not prepared for so early a rising. In spite of the stirring appeals of the committees, little or no popular enthusiasm is apparent, even among the 20,000 Macedonian residents of Sofia. How long this condition will last depends largely on the developments in Macedonia. At present the center of the disturbance is Monastir. a long way off. Should the riving spread to the valleyet of Uskub and come near the Bulgarian fron tier it is probable that the population of Bulgarian will become aroused.
