Shortly after the sale, Mr. Hyde will go
abroad to live. Mr. Hyde has arranged
with the Fifth avenue art galleries to
sell his effects at auction. They include
costly paintings, many by the old mas
ters bric-a-brac, statuary, furniture,
bronzes and antiques. There are sev
eral carloads to be disponed of, and the
articles will be kicked down to the
highest bidder. Nothing will be re
served, no matter what the sacrifice to
the owner. After disposing of the con
trol of the Equitable a few months ago
to Thomas Eyan, Mr. Hyde sold
his magnificent estate on Long
Island. A little later he sold to
Edwin Hawley, the railway magnate
and financier, his luxurious private car
Bay Shore, which he had built a few
years ago at a cost of $50,000. Mr.
Hyde has also recently severed his con
nection as an officer with various finan

The maintenance of this bureau has
been extremely expensive, the differ

$2,000,000 pro rata,-to pay its expenses.
It is said that the Officials and direct
ors will not be sorry to have this drain
on their resources cease, as there will
be new expenses to be incurred in con

The reason for closing the bureau
is that it has proven a failure, an ex
pensive luxury which has done the

scarecly any good.
It is pointed out that the latest fiasco
of the bureau was the rump convention
in Chicago, which it organized to nul

Instead of helping matters it only
brought into more prominence the meth
ods which the railroads have been using

that in the case of the rump

of harm. They were so open in manag

than a railroad scheme.
Another thing which has disgusted
the railroad officials with the bureau is
the fact that- while they were expected

Texas Rangers Fight Fierce Com
bat With the Martinez
By Publishers' Press,
Houston, Texas, Nov. 11.A special
from Minerva, Texas, via Laredo, says:
Eancheros from Palefox, twenty miles
from her on the Rio Grande, report a
bloody battle between rangers and the
band of Martinez outlaws which has
been committing depredations in the
cattle county of Texas, New Mexico,
Arizona and old Mexico for twenty-five
The rangers have been on the trail
of Martinez, the chief, ever since the
killing of Ranger Goff in Brewster
county three months ago, and at one
time a pitched battle was fought near
Laredo, in which Martinez's brother
was killed and the bandit chief
Six rangers located Martinez and his
band on an island in the Rio Grande.
An assault was made Fridav night and
the island was turned into a battle
ground. Two outlaws w,ero killed, but
the band was so stronglv fortified that
the rangers retreated to either bank
of the river and tried to starve the
bandits into surrender. Reinfocements
have arrived from Laredo, and the
border along the Rio Grande resembles
an armed camp.

for eight murders in old Mexico and

Norwegian throne. He resembles his
grandfather, Karl XV., in temperament
and character, and this king was one of
the most popular a Scandinavian coun
try has ever had. The whole people
loved him, and the fact that Karl is so
like him in many ways has had a good
deal to do with his selection by the
storthing. He is personally well known
to all the Scandinavian people, which
fact is of itself a sufficient guarantee
that Norway has made a proper choice.
His wife, who is somewhat older than
he, is a very popular princess. Their
marriage was one of love and not of
diplomacy, and their attachment for
each other has made their domestic life
as nearly ideal as possible.
It is believed here that Prince Karl
will probably go to Christiania about
N\w. 25 and assume the crown some
where near the first of December.
Powers of the Crown.
The powers of the crown, it is said
here by the experts, will not exceed
those exercised by King Oscar. I is
the belief that the old constitution of
1840, which is the one under which King
Oscar ruled the land, will be the founda
tion for any new organic law which may
be constructed. There may be certain
slight changes, but they will not be
numerous or important. The people
have always been satisfied, in the main,
with that document, which confines thp
royal power within rather narrow lim
its, and the disposition seems to be to
retain it. Of course, there must be cer
tain changes in phraseology, now that
Norway is to be an independent coun
try, but the major part of the instru
ment will be retained.
The chief reason for this is said to
bo found in the fear that if a new ccm
stitution were to be adopted, and a con
vention were called for that purpose,
the results might not be entirely satis
factory. I will ^be easier to set up
business under the old constitution,
after certain minor changes have been
made in it, than to make a new one
and besides that, there would be com
paratively few risks to run in taking
the old constitution, which has been
thoroly tried and found in the main to
be satisfactory.
King Oscar, it is said, received about
320,000 crowns a year from Norway,
and the prevailing opinion here is that
Kgrl will receive a considerably larger
Crown Property in Norway.
King Oscar owns some private prop
erty in Norway, but not a great deal.
His chief holding is the Bygdoe estate
in Christiania, sometimes called Lade
gaardsoen. All of the remainder of the
crown prqperty in Norway belongs to
the Btate, and will be turned over to the
new king. The slott, or royal palace, in
Christiania, is kept open the year

Two More Patients Discovered,

Havana, Nov. 11.Two. more pa
tients in the local hospitals' were dis
covered to be suffering from yellow
fever. Both victims are Spaniards.
One of the patients was taken to Las
Animas hospital and the other is being
cared for at Pependientes hospital.
The Italian patient who had the dis
ease has now recovered and this leaves
three cases, which are now being
treated. The condition of A. Z. Out
water of Passaic, N. J., who was taken
ill on Sunday, and whose case Was diag
nosed yesterday as yellow fever, is
very critical.
While the fever has thus got a start
in the eity the authorities believe they
will be able to prevent its spread and
to stamp out the disease within a short

visits to Norway. This palace is now
being thoroly overhauled and refur
nished. I contains a number of paint
ings, the personal property of King Os
car, which he will remove, and other
paintings, probably of princes of the
new royal house, will take their places.
The Christiania palace has never been
furnished in keeping with kingly dig
nity, but this has been due t'o the fact
that royalty occupied it so seldom. The
people have now determined that inas
much as it is to be the permanent home
of their new king and his family, it
must be fitted up in elaborate style.
This will mean new furnishings thruout.
Graves as Our Minister.
Mr. Hauge, while interested in all
the matters discussed herewith, has
so little direct information regarding
them, that he is unwilling to be inter
viewed, save as has been indicated at
the beginning of this dispatch. He in
dorses what has previously been said
in this correspondence regarding the
probability that Colonel C. H. Graves,
American minister to Scandinavia, who
is accredited \o both Norway and Swe
den, will continue to act or. the United
States in both countries until congress
is ready to enact legislation providing
for a separate Norwegian legation.
The president's message, it, is ex
pected, will call attention to the sep
aration of the two countries, and askget
congress to make proper provision for
direct diplomatic representation in Nor
way at an early time in the eoming ses
sion. Meanwhile, it ia the understand
ing that the president and the secre
tary of state have not given any con
sideration to the question of who shall
be the new minister or secretary of
Welcomed to Washington.
Speaking of the Hauge appointment,
the Washington Post says editorially:
"How it is at home, we naturally do
not pretend to say, but in this capital
it goes without saying that Christian
Hauge, formerly first secretary of the
Sweden-Norway legation, is easily our
preference. I is not only that we have
known him some years as an accom
plished and companionable gentleman,
he has still further appealed to our ad
miration and respect by his action in
resigning the secretaryship as^ soon as
he received notice of the contemplate^
separation." vt^

Wisconsin Man Charges Cruelty
and Mismanagement in
Waupaca Home.
Special to The Journal.
Oshkosh, Wis., Nov. 11.Formal de
mand has been made upon Governor
La Fojlette for an investigation of
the Wisconsin Veterans' Home at Chain
of Lakes, Waupaca. The prime mover
in the matter is H. S. Maynard of this
city, a former inmate of the home. He
has employed counsel and formal com
plaint has been made to the state exec
utive, mismanagement and cruelty in
the conduct of affairs at the home be
ing charged and supported by affida-
The governor has replied by letter
that the matter has been referred to
the attorney general and that further
developments will be chronicled in a
day or two.
The affidavits aver the appropriation
of pensions on the part of the board
of trustees of the home, and also spe
cific cases of cruelty to the inmates.
It is alleged that in one case the
authorities of the home refused to go
to the assistance of a veteran inmate
who had fallen in a snowdrift and was
being frozen, and when other inmates
rescued the unfortunate, the latter was
refused treatment until an order could
be obtained from headquarters. The
result is that the man lost his hands.
Another charge is that an inmate af
flicted with cancer was denied treat
ment save on payment for each treat
Mr. Maynard is represented by B.
E. Vankeuren, attorney, of this city,
and promises sensational disclosures if
the matter comes to public trial.
The Curzons will give a farewell ball
at Simla next month -just previously
to their departure. Kipling's charac
ters will be prominent among the fancy
and historical costumes.
The Roosevelt Influence.
Another reason is the thoroly inde
pendent attitude of President Roosevelt,
who now has the confidence of the enwhich
tire country, as has no former presi
dent. A republican on principle, he has
declined this year to interfere in behalf
of republican machine grafters, or to
permit his cabinet to interfere, ih
example which he set, for instance,
made it impossible for any self-respect
ing republican of national size to go to
the defense of the republican machine
in Pennsylvania.
The president has always put prin
ciple above party, and he has convinced
the people that this is the proper thins
to do. How a candidate for municipal
office stands regarding the tariff, for
example, he holds is not of the slightest
consequence as compared with how he
stands toward a proper discharge of the
duties he wants to assume.
The Independent Vote.
The net result of these and other rea
sons which might be mentioned has
been the phenomenal growth of the
independent vote of the country. This
growth has, however, not been confined
to the more intelligent classes of peo
ple, men who will still be able, on occa

appear on the scene, and the platlorm
that he will dictate will make the regu
lar democratic platform seem conserva
tive to the last degree. He will be
nominated for the presidency on that
platform, and will make a campaign
which will produce all of the alarm that
was produced by the Bryan campaign
in 1896.
The republicans meanwhile will be
compelled to nominate some man of the
strength of a Root or a Taft, and the
result of the election will be highly un
certain, until after the votes have been
The Rate Reform Fight.
The public ownership propaganda, it supposed to have hired
should be kept well in mind, promises
to be greatly stimulated by the forth
coming contest in congress between the
president and the railroads for decent
treatment of the small shippers.
Hearst made grist of everything
came to his New York mill this
year. The opposition to Jerome on the
part of the regular party bosses, the
insurance investigations, the disgrace
of men who for years had been out
wardly at least models of public and
private virtue and proprietyall these
things were used' in his campaign for
mayor with telling effect.
Similarly, in a presidential struggle,
the public ownership party would use
the effort of the railroads to defeat the
purpose of the president as an argument
in favor of the public ownership theory.
And the defeat of the president's plan
in congress the coming winter would do
more to forward public ownership as a
more advantage to the Hearst candi
dacy for mayor than anything he or his
friends said or did.

Now, to apply that situation to na

Roosevelt an Optimist.
The president is an optimist, how-
this beliey he is joined most-and men
but he does believe that there is to be
a general movement of the masses of
the people against buttressed and inso
lent wealth, unless tfcat wealth shall of
its own accord assume a more just at
titude toward the people and that that
movement, while not threatening the
foundations of the government, may
threaten capital itself, and, among
other things, bring on a financial and
industrial panic such as the world has
seldom witnessed.
He occupies a middle position be
tween these two forces} and it is his
high purpose to bring tfyem together on
some common ground where each may
be made to admit that there is some
ground for right in the position of the
other. He holds that his railroad-rate
policy is not radical, but that he stands
midway between the railroads and the
people, where both sides can meet. If
this meeting does not take place, it is
his opinion that the railroads will re
gret it*
The corporate interests of the coun
try may yet come to the realisation
that he is the best friend they ever
have had.
Prospect of Anglo-Russian Under

^Who Pear Bad Tangle,
Special Cable to The loxunuL
Stockholm, Nov. 11.Sweden is dis
turbed over the prospeet of an Anglo
Russian understanding,, believing that
it contains the seeds of the first serious
difficulty the country will have to
face as a result of the dissolution of
the union with Norway.
It is understood here that Britain
will consent to the acquisition by Rus
sia of harbors in northern Norway.
This would compel Sweden to side
either with Anglo-Russian partnership
or else with isolated Germany.
Either choice would, it isebelieveL
prove dangerous to this country.

Long, Julius Heinecke and Edward
Taylor, who were arrested several days

Samuel Studzinski last August for the
purpose of robbery, were today dis
charged when arraigned for prelimi

Heinecke proved an absolute alibi
and the evidence was not sufficient to"
connect the others with the crime. Stud
zinski was an aged Polish Jew and was
known to possess valuable diamonds
and $2,000 in gold coin, which was the
motive for the crime. He had a wealthy

An experience in illustration cornea
from Pennsylvania:
For a long time I have been a great
sufferer from headaches and nervous- UJ
ness would wake early in the morning
in such pain that I thought it would hf
a privilege to die. At times it would be
a violent sick headache, at others se
vere nervous headache.
I often consulted my physician but
he could give me-no reliefmedicines
did no permanent good.
*I the meantime I had learned that
two or three cups of strong coffee would
relieve an attack or lessen its severity
also, that When I did without coffee
the headache was sure to come on.
I got worse and worse and was so
nervous that the least noise drove me
wild. I told the doctor abont this on*
day, and he at once said, 'You ought
never to drink coffee.'
"At the same time he advised me to
try Postum Food Coffee, saying it was
used in his family. I quit the old kind
of coffee at oncS and began on Postum,
which proved to be, when made right,
a most palatable 'and delicious bever
age. At once I began to improve and
now I need only to say that during the
years I have used it I have been com

gone, my nerves aTe steady, the consti

does so. I have increased in weight
and my brain is clear and quick."
