C., TUESDAY, 1) MBER 18, 1902--TWENTY PAGES. TWO CENTS. : END OF BEAR HUNT 3 President Will Leave Missis- i sippi This Afternoon. OUT HUNTING TODAY b 3UT LITTLE HOPE HE WILL GET A BEAR. t One of the Party Got One Yesterday- d r The President Not So C Fortunate. SMEDES. Miss., November 18.-This was the last (lay of the President's hunting ex pedition in Mississippi. A messenger from camp this morning reported that the party 0 got an early start. The weather conditions a were better than they have been on any day of the hunting. It was cool and cloudy, r and the dogs could work without distress. N The hunters who are trying to give the b President a shot are pretty badly discour- r aged, but they were hoping against hope f for better luck today. The President him self seems less concerned over his ill-for ei tune than are those who were instrumental a in bringing him here. He is satisfied that c there are bear in the swamps, and told his s friends yesterday that he wanted to come down here again and have another hunt with Holt Collier. The party will break camp late this after- ] noon. KNOXVILLE, 'lenn., November 18.-It is announced here that on his return trip from Memphis President Roosevelt will take the Southern railway route direct to Wash Ington, and will make stops at Stevenson and Tuscumbia, -Ala., Chattanooga and Knoxville, Tenn., and Asheville and Mon roe, N. C. This will be -the President's second visit this year to Chattanooga, Knoxville and Asheville. He Is scheduled to reach Asheville Thursday aA 6:10 p.m. One Bear Killed Yesterday. The dogs started one bear yesterday. He I fled in a northeasterly direction at the first I cry of alarrm and did not stop running until s be reached the canebrakes about nine miles p from camp. There he was overtaken by s Mr. McDougal, one of the managers of the I Smede plantation, who killed him at seventy '] paces. The President, who had started this v morning in the rain with Hol-t Collier, did not hear the dogs after they first struck -the trail. The Presid;ent takes his ill luck good na- : turedly. He says it is simply the fortune ;r of the chase and that he will have a last try tomorrow. The bear killed today weighed 225 pounds. Judge Dickinson is the only member of the party, except Mr. McDougal, who has fired a shot. The judge missed a swamp deer at 100 yards. Mr. McElheney also had a chance at a deer today, but his gun refused to go off. It turned colder today, and the rain which began last night ceased falling short- C ly before noon. Object to Negro Sentinels. A dispatch from Memphis, Tenn., last b might says: The fact that the Roosevelt e committee on arrangements has caused the exclusion of visitors, kodak fiends, reporters and sightseers from the camp near Smedes station during the stay of the bear hunters has aroused the ire of some of the editors of newspapers published within a short dis tance of the President's camp. One of the q publications near -the scene of hunt advises n Its readers that any man would have the right to shoot down a negro guard who would try to bar his progress in what is termed a "free country." The country through which the President is hunting is about as wild and rough as any to be found on the continent. An African jungle would not be more impcne- g trable than the canebrake in which the S President is hunting bear. The population n in this particular county numbers about ten blacks to one white. So far there has c been but one disturbance between whites r and blacks. A son of a prominent Missis- I sippi planter was hunting with his own set I of dogs and was accosted by the colored I, guards stationed outside the Roosevelt camp. The guard commanded the hunter a to halt. The reply was a shot from the l white man, but tue retreat of the guard put t a stop to further trouble. The feeling of the planters and farmers in the neighborhood of the Roosevelt camp is Intense against the policy of the com mittee of arrangements in placing negro guards to picket the camp of the Presi- t dent against visiting insurgents. An effort was made to get white men to serve as guards to the President; but It was not suc cessful. Guards Befuse to Xarch.5 Local arrangements for the reception of the President are progressing slowly. After President Roosevel-t concludes his hunting trip he will come to Memphis and will 1 *pend a short time here. It has developed that at a meeting of the committee on ar rangements last night the Confederate Vet-r erants, the Governor's Guards and other local militia refused to join in the parade in honor of tLhe President. The reception committee has announced that there will be no military feature of the President's parade. i.he committee in charge of the enter tainment to be given in honor of Gen. Luke E. Wright on Wednesday night completed all arrangements tonight. An additional feature to t.he heretofore announced pro gram is that the wives of the members of the committee have been constituted a comn mittee of arrangements for a breakfast to be given by the ladies of Memphis to the President and Gen. and Mrs. Wright at the Gayoso Hotel at noon on Wednesday. President Roosevelt has accepted the la dies' invitation. Arrangements also were 1 completed to give Gen. Wright a rousing welcome on his arrival Tuesday night. Main street will be Illuminated and cannon will boom when his train pulls Into Poplar street station. LAWS FOR THE PHILIPPINES. Senator Lodge Hope. to Obtain Some Remedial Legislation. Seniator Lodge. chairman of the Senate committee on the Philippines, and Senaltor Burrows, a member of that committee, call ed on Secretary Root today and briefly dis-1 Cussel Drobable Phl!ippine legislation at the -comina- session. Senator Lodge says that if the onntosition Is willing to allow gi sla tion for the benenit of the Philippines to be enacted without long debate, something will be attempted in the way of remedying the currenci situation and probably in the direction of reducing the duties on Philip-. pines zoods coming to the United States. The senator savs it is undesirable with the amount of business vending to have an ex tensive Philippine debate like that of the last Congress. Both senators also called upon Secretary Hay Lild discussed matters which the StatE Desartment will likely submit to the Sen- 1 Ste at the coming session, These- include) Ste Celombhian tre.t for .the canat and the . ~secity treatJ it Cuba.

FOUR MTISIG COAL BARGES. 3riven Away From Naval Vessels in a Gale. No Information has been received a.t the (avy Department of the four coal barges rhich were lost sight ot in a southeaster ff Hatteras while the North Atlantic quadron was on its way from Hampton toads to Culeora. The Prairie was direct d to go in search of the lost barges, but easn still searching at last accounts. The arges were being towed by the Prairie and rot adrift in the gale. They carried no cal, but were to be used in transierriag uel from the colliers and the coal dep,ts o the squadron during the maneuvers. lhey were built at a cost of about I8,02 tach. From the fact that the weather was to3 ough for the Dolphin to put out from mort Royal it is supposed the armorciads if the squadron also encountered high seas chile going down the coast; nor Is thIs urprising, as the weather is usualiy ba.! ~t this time in the southern seas. Had any 'essels of the squadron been seriously dam ged by the gale it is probable the depart nent would' have been advised of it before iow. Fenad tdu Martheray hosen by the D==anmik to eCore e. notmu SwIinagi NIovenhee 1S.--Th mundesrath he gg e NInesal du NEW FOOD FOR LIVE STOCE. Experiments Attracting Attention of German Army Officers. United States Consul Liefield, reporting to the State Department from Freiburg, Germany, calls attention to a new food for live stock which has been successfully experimented with in Otrass,burg. - It Is called "Blut-Kraftfutter" (blcod strength fodder), consists of "steam-dried blood pre pared under the control of a municipal veterinary surgeon, chaff, or the hulls of grain, finely ground, the husks of peanut kernels and also the inner lining or skin of peanut shells and molasses," with a per centage of phosphates added to the prepa ration. It is retailed at $2.75 per bag (165 pounds). Consul LIefleld says results show a saving of 8 cents per horse per day and 10 cents per cow per day in the saving of' other foods. "The military authorities at Strassburg," the report continues, "have been feeding this blood meal to the horses of the regiments stationed there as an ex periment, and the result seems to give sat isfaction; and the manager of the fac tory believes that this preparation will soon be ordered to be fed to all army horses In the country." RAISING BEET SEED. Consul Diederich Tells of Successful Experiments in Russia. Henry W. Diederich, United States consul at Bremen, reporting to the State Depart mentmen,t on the cultivation of beet seed from imported mother seed, calls the atten tion of beet sugar growers in the United States to the satisfactory results obtained in Russia by importing German mother seed, from which they raise, in the course of two years, a crop of first-class beet seed. The mother seed is sown with a ma chine drill In rows 10 to 12 inches apart. about twenty to thirty pounds to the acre. The plants are not thinned, but are allowed to grow until fall. Before the first frost the small beets are dug out with their tops, assorted and put into pits, not more than three beets deep. The layers are put to gether with 'their tops outward and roots touching. The row is then gradually cov ered with earth. The following spring the small seed beets are removed, again as sorted and planted 2 feet apart in specially prepared soil. They are allowed to grow until the seed turns brown, when the stalks are cu't and bundled, allowed to dry in the field and finally brought in and thrashed. From the twenty to thirty pounds of seed which are sufficient for one acre can be grown material to plant ten acres of seed beets the following spring. MARIETTA LEAVES LA GUAIRA. Officials Believe That Affairs in Ven ezuela Have Quieted Down. The fact that the gunboat Marietta. which has been looking after American interests on the coast of Venezuela, has left La Guaira for Curacao to coal, leads the of ficials of the Navy Department to assume that affairs in Venezuela have quieted down for the time being.

C., where he went early last week on the dis patch boat Dolphin to inspect the naval property there and at Charleston.

MITM-L UMERFIRE Labor Leader Cross-Exam ined All Day. KEPT HIB (0 URE WHOLT rOMISTyON AFTE) HIM AT Torb He Managed, as a Rule, to Meet Their Interrogatories With Sharp Replies. SCRANTON. Pa., Xovember 18.-Another large crowd was im attendance today when the arbitration committee began its fourth day's sitting. Mr. Mitchell, who has been on the stand since last Friday; took his place in the witness box, and his cross examination by Wayne MacVeagh for the Erie company was resumed. It was the general opinion of attorneys today that some arrangement W2W have to be made to shorten the inquiry. tAt the rate progress is now being made it ;ill tak% many weeks to hear both sides to the controversy. it counsel takes no action it is likely the commission will suWest that something b done. The cononissioners recognize that President MitceWll is the most im portant witness the miners have, and they are loath to have n*ters hurried whie he is on the stand. He being the presi dent of the union his opinions are looked upon as official and also as reflecting the policy of the organization. John T. Lenahan's Clients. Before proceeding to the examination, John T. Lenahan of Wilkesbarre, one of the attorneys for the non-union men who want the commission to take up their case, handed to the commission a list of 2,000 names of non-union men as his authority for appearing before the arbitrators. -He did not wish the commission to make the names public at this time, but as Chairman Gray said everything filed with the com mission is public matter. the names were urofficially handed in anA were not given out for publication. He also filed a state ment of the non-union demands which were published this morning. Mr. MacVeagh, irreluming his cross-ex amination, said he woild:be glad to get an expression as to tbje infeence of acts of violence upon the temper and disposition of the union men sAid to have committed them. The witness si4 that he would not assume that the allWe4 asts of violence are true. "If," he saL "Forest City, which had been referred to, woidd be an example of all towns and afties in the anthracite field it would indicse that we were a very law-abiding, religioW people." "The question," 1r. McVEagh said, "is whether or not youhave:.taken the proper methods to prevent. a relwtition of violent acts when they fve oc ed." He did not care, be F by whom these were committed, "W ' t, I am trying to show," he continue- "*,that there is a growing spirit of volence and disregard of law in your organizatton, a that your in fluence over thq Is istifficient to keel) them law-abidivig and peaceable, as you desire them to'be." Mitchell Ke'eps Cool. Under this arraignmedt of the union Mr. Mitchell retained his oomplete composure. The question met with a ready respon0e. '"The fear that my inluence," said he, "is. not sufficient to dater men from the coM mission of crime is a tontradiction of the claims often made aboqt me." He was free to say that some men may have been deterred from going to work, be cause of violence, but the strike Itself lost more in public opinion by reason of that than it could possibly gain. The cross-examiner and the witness then plunged into a spirited colloquy over the question of whether one man has a rght to prevent another man from selling his labor. The best answer Mr. MacVeagh could draw from the miners' chief was that he did not approve of any one committing an unlawful act. Mr. MacVeagh read a statement regard ing the right to strike.as belonging to the personal freedom of workingmen. He also took the view that in exercising that free dom those who cease to work must not in terf(re with the liberty of others who wish to work. Discussion Over Anarchy. "We do not want anarchy," said Mr. Mitchell, "and that is anarchy, pure and simple-the right of every man to do abso lutely as he pleases, regardless of its ef fects on society." "This is the languag of a very carefully disguised anarchy," - Mr. MacVeagh re marked. "because it is the language of Archbishop Ireland." "Archbishop Ireland never expected it to be used in that sense. I might say Arch bishop Ireland is a member oJ a committee of which I am also a member, which has declared for a trade union idea." Answering a further question, Mr. Mitch eli declared that i~f Archbishop Ireland's statement meant that men have no right to picket he disagreed with him. Mr. Mitchell added that he did not mnow that the arch bishop- was regarded as a supreme court on trade union matters. The attorney and the witness wandered from the rules of cross-examination and in dulged in an -argtunent over the propriety of any one criticising acts and decisions of courts. Mr. MacVeagh thought it - was wrong to follow such -a course, and that it tends to breed anarchy. Mr. Mitchell said he was pleased to say the e ts, as a rule, are 'fair, but if regretted tat in the eourue of his expeiiaee he hadj found some juglges against labor. He gef rued to Judge Jack son of West Vira 40, he said, had made a great ma erhus reflections on men who gavu.e u~ r Uves to the cause of labor. aea g hg. there 1were no anarchists In the aicLaons. Replying to Mr. Macg'a Uregarding union !me g - to ~ ~oal Guard, Mr. Mitchell sadno lo ImMs union had ever mexpelled a ma fra l!nion for belong Yng to the guard,sa'staiat no national labor union of anyang Ad ever done much a thing. A little tda ing New York state. he said, had taken,nn-action, and it bad n hraled evedli zeunry.* He was n resonsile frymbtaem othr ganS Mr. MacVeagh messu his co-esei nation at, this point - Judg- tay%A mu- net. As soon as Mr. Kig ha dise Judge Gray annougedat the commis sion did not wish teni the liberty of any one aDDearing in this cas as representing others, but they believed they bad obtain ed as much informadon as they are likely to get ofr the subjects touched upon. Judge Gray aonbniagg however, that if thtere was any new Ue~t evniUStiog the tettman. 'F * ?Wolvey tonla ant *b IL "NOTHIN weigh coal. but he did not think the ex pense of equipping them would be very great. Mr. Mitchell. answering further questions by Mr. Gowen, reiterated his for mer statement that one of the principal grievances of the men was the amount of "topping" required on each car. Mr. Mitchell added that he had heard of cases where the men had "cribbed" their cars to make it appear that there was more coal in them than actually was the case. A discussion followed on the question of weighing coal. In answer to a question from Mr. Watkins. Mr. Mitchell said that the Present system is not fair to all men. "For instance. where two men are work ing at adjoining breasts," he said, "where the conditions are similar, one man loads a car of Pure coal and the other man sends out a car half of which contains impurities. The first one under tthe present system suf fers the same as the other. I believe a man should be docked for impurities, but it is not right to penalize the man who seds uD the pure product." General Cross-VEaminatin For the Arst time during the session the members of 'the commission then entered ito *a general 'cross-examination of the witness on the point which the previoud testimony had not brought out. Replying to Bishop- Spaulding, Mr. Mitch ell said that operators could -form a coali tion and stop the mining of coal throughout the United States. "They could do the same as we could," iaid he, "and especially now, when the coal fields of the country are passing into the .haidsof a few men." Commissioner Watkins thought the law would prevent the operators doing that, by reason of their incorporation, but Mr. Mitchell said that they had the right to shut down their mines. Judge Gray asked the witness if his so ciety did not depend, after all, on the old economic truth that all great forces which tend to uplift and carry on social advance ment and civilization depend upon the aver age desire of the individual to better his own condition and to work for wages, and upon the desire of a man who has prop erty to utilize it and get an income from it. "I think that probably is true," was Mr. MitchelYs response. Judge Gray: "If you can imagine all men ceasing to work at once the whole social mach'ine would stop." Mr. Mitchell said: "Yes." Commissioner Wright asked: "Do you consider it justifiable for the employers in a certain district, in order to resist the de mands of the labor union, to paralyze that industry or any group of industries?" "No, I do not think it is proper," Mr. Mitchell replied. "Would the same answer be made if I should substitute unions instead of em ployers?" "I think in either case," answered Mr. Mitchell, "some other avenue of adjustment than the paralyzation of the industry should be sought." Why Union Does Not Incorporate. Mr. Mitchell, answering the commission era, said the United Mine Workers did not incorporate because the step was not neces sary. An organization to become finan cdally responsible, he said, must have a large fund, and this the working people did not have. He said that employers who object to treating or contracting with the union because it is not incorporated would oppose treating with it anyhow. Commissioner Wright asked Mr. Mitchell what hi'e meant by recognition of the union, and the witness replied: "It means that the emploirers shall make agreements regulat-. ing hours,.of labor, wages, etc., with the union, and that the union, as such, would be held responsible for a rigid, compliance aiith those agreements." The cross-examina-tion was next taken up by W. W. Ross of New York, counsel for the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western, who had just begun. to question L.e wit ness when the noon recess hour arrived.

Negro Leaders Gave Notification of Secret Operations Against the President. There is a lingering feeling in the Fouth for Senator Hanna for the republican presi dential nomination, and if he would permit an indication of the use of his name this feeling would become exceedingly strong. It is predicted. The declaration is made that the President has not by any means crushed the white movement in the republi can party in the south. In Alabama, where he has removed a United States attorney and a collector of internal revenue, and has a big axe poised over the heads of District Attorney Reese and Postmaster Hughes of Birmingham, the "lily white" faction has not been crushed. Instead of promptly sur rendering and changing front that they might remain around the federal pie coun ter, the "iT white" leaders have defiantly announced that they would continue the'r policy, and in addition would tight thc re nomination of the President. It so happens that in Alabama the republican organiza tion is well dominated by the "lily whit(s." Mr. Bingham is the national committceman from the state, and in nearly ever y other way the organization is well intrenched in the hands of the white men who proposed to overthrow the negro influence in poli tics. This fact is not favorable to the negro faction securing control and defeating the alms of the "lily whites." There is no doubt that the negroes in the party largely outnumber the whites in Alabama, but the control is now in the other side. The same thing may be said in North Carolina, if Senator Pritchard and his organization should decide to fight the President. There has been some doubt whether Senator Pritchard would do this, and he has been charged with wanting to be a federal judge in the south. Have Come Out for Hanna. Ex-Representative Romulus Z. Linney and other republicans in the state have come out for Senator Hanna. They are do ing so without caring whether Senator Hanna gives his indorsement or not. Mr. Linney was a familiar figure in Congress several years ago. White republicans in the south are charg ing that the President is .volating his own 'position "on the civil- service question by sumnarily.removing mgn from offlee whoem records were gopd. It is recalled that when Mr. Binghaza was removed and his succes sor was appointed Postmaster General Payne gave out a statement saying that Mr. Bingham's conduct of his office was not a consideration in the matter. Secret Work of MlI Whitel, A peculiar fact had been noticed by Gen. J. S. Clarkson, collector of the port of New York, and southern manager of political affairs of the administration. This was that in nearly every southern state where the "lily white" movement was making progress and the negro was being elimi nated there was secret hostility to the Pres ident. Mr. Clarkson is declared to have had some fears that the "lily whites" pro posed to secure control of the various state organizations, get the negro completely out of the way and then turn on the President. The latter had a friend in Senator Pritch ard in North Carolina, but there was con Istantly a strong sentiment among other white leaders for Senator Hanna or some one else. Negro leaders in the south, es pecially Booker Washington, thought they saw indications of treachery, and they no tified Mr. Clarkson and General Payne. Mr. Clarkson has had some experience with republican machines in the south, and he concluded that the President had more genuine friends among the negroes in the south than among the small number of whites. Power of the Negroes. In most of the southern states the negro has, if he exercises it, the voting power in conventions to overturn any attempt against the President, especially in those states where he still retains a partial con trol in the state committees and county or ganizations. Texas and Louisiana are largely dominated by a white element, but in the latter state the office-holding habit may be too strong to induce any rebellion against the President there. The President made some enemies in Arkansas early in his administration by removing several white offieloiders whose conduct of their offices was not to his liking. So there is a nucleus for opposition to him in that state. Tennessee, with a white organization, is supposed to be friendly to the President, but this is not known. EANQUET TO COL. GARDNEE.
