Newport, R. I., August 23. President Roosevelt closed his second day's Jour ney through New England tonight at Newport, where he is the guest of Wln throp Chanler. Upon the conclusion of his speech at the city hall. Providence, he was driven to the dock, where he boarded his private yacht for the resi dence of Senator Aldrich at Warwick. Newport was reached at 9:30. He was at once taken to the Chanler residence, and while here he will at tend the christening of the Chanler baby. Since starting from New Haven his progress through Connecticut and Rhode Island has been marked, by greetings the warmth of which could hardly be exceeded. The weather has been all that could be desired, and the president has frequently expressed his appreciation of the successful carrying cut of the elaborate preparations for his reception and the outpouring of the multitudes all anxious to share in ex tending him a hearty welcome. He rose early this morning in Hartford and arrived at the station some min utes before 8 o'clock, the hour of his departure. The handsome special on which he is traveling is maintaining Its schedule THE NEW DANGER IN SOUTH AFRICA Kaffirs Armed by England Practicing: in Gunnery- Vienna, August 23. The Frcmndeiu blatt today publishes an interview with an Austrian who traveled from South Africa to England on the steamer with the Boer generals, Botha, De Wet and Delarey. The Austrian is credited with saying that in the course cf conversa tion they said to him: "It is probable that England has no need to fear further trouble from the Boers, but the civilization of South Africa is threatened by Kaffirs. Eng land armed these savages, brave but untrustworthy tribes, to figh for her. Now the war ".s ended, but the Kaffirs have not returned their arms, but have retreaced with them to inaccessible places in the mountain.", where they are reported to be engaged in daily shooting exercises and preparation far war. Unless the English authorities display the greatest energy, the Kaf firs are likely to cause great trouble." Referring to political matters, the Fremndemblatt says General Botha told its informant that England's best course would be to grant the Boers in independent parliament; that this was the only possible means of securing peaceable development of thi country. ONLY ONE ELECTION FIGHT And That Wat a Short Mill With No Stake Money. ' Francisco Escobosa was the only man who succeeded in working up enough election excitement yesterday to get himself licked. He tried all the afternoon to get Into trouble with one or another, but everybody was so good natured Francisco could not rub the hafr the wrong way. That was the sit uation till a couple of hours after the democratic primaries were closed, but it could not go on forever. Francisco wandered from one saloon to another and threw down the gaunt let to every little bunch of men he came to. Finally he forced his way into a crowd at the corner of First av enue and Washington streets, and be gan to throw language uround in a most careless and offensive manner. He did not seem to care who he hit or what kind of an expression he hit him with. One of his three-cornered epithets struck a man named Cox, who was always brave, and whose bravery was scientifically educated at the ex pense cf the government while Mr. Cox was a member of McCord's fighting brigade. When Francisco landed this epithet he was gesticulating wildly, and Mr. fox thought he meant what he said. it was but natural for him to lead out with hi3 right and follow with his left. It was unnecessary to do any thing further, for Francisco had closed up like a jackknife, and his friends were carrying him into Doll's saloon, on the corner. Constable Porterie hap pened to be near, and he told Mr. Cox that it was his painful duty to place him under arrest, but that he could go on his own recognizance if he would RNEY Presi- and so far there has been no hitch on this account. The president's demo cratic ways are constantly referred to, and in his speeches he seems to reach the people at once. At Willimantic, where he spoke from his carriage in the public square, his remarks were referred to by several as a heart-to-heart talk. Perhaps the most enthusiastic reception accorded to him by the smaller places where stops were made was at River Point, R. I., in the Pawtucket valley. Pastime park, which adjoins the railroad track, was thronged with people, among them hundreds of Grand Army men, who formed a semi-circle in front of the platform. The president quickly cap tured his audience, who applauded his tribute to the veterans of the civil war for their unswerving valor and devo tion to duty, and his reference to the people of Rhode Island concerning the utilization of their resources met with much distinct favor. The demonstration at Providence was the climax to an eventful 'day. The multitude which gathered around the platform in front of the city hall gave vent to their feelings time an"d again throughout the course of his address, and at its conclusion he was over whelmed with congratulations. appear in Justice Gray's court ut 9 o'clcck on Monday. Shortly after that Francisco ap peared on the street again. His friends had managed to get life back into him, but they had failed to get'the devil out of hirrr, so when he made his , second appearance he camewlth chips on both shoulders and his lists clenched. He was siill looking for trouble and de scribing his fellow citizens as mighty common cattle. To keep him from get ting hurt Constable Porterie placed him under arrest and started for the county Jail. Francisco's brother fol lowed, and went his bond for appear ance Monday morning, at the same time agreeing to take him home and drain the liquor out of him. o- BOUNDARY MARK DESTROYED. Lieutenant Owens Investigating in tha Disputed Alaskan Territory. Tacoma, Wash., August 23. Skagway advices say the question of the destruc tion of an old Russion monument In the disputed territory .between Alaska and British Yukon has been settled. S. Weit man, a merchant of Haines, arrived at Skagway with the news that Lieuten ant Owens had found two monument In perfect repair and definitely located the place where a third one had been destroyed. One of the monuments dis covered is about ten miles above Rainy Hollow, fifty miles from the coast. Lieutenant Owens is now examining other parts of the boundary and will secure the statements of Indians. The monument destroyed was leveled to the ground. The destruction had evidently been wrought within a few months. Lieutenant Owens also found an old storm house on the summit. This was called Boundary house when the Rus sians occupied the country. The walls jof the building are falling down, but there is every indication of occupation !at one time. This establishes beyond all doubt that the Russians did occupy the territory now disputed and that the boundary line according to the treaty Is where the Americans assert that It Is. RETRACTS HIS CONFESSION. 1 1 Perham and the Two Women Now Say They Didn't Kill Rogers. Bennington. Vt., August 23. Mrs. Marcus Rogers, Stella Bates, Jier sis ter, and Leon Perham were arraigned before Justice Shurtleff at 6 o'clcck last evening on the charge of having mur dered Marcus Rogers last Tuesday by administering chloroform to him.

Perham declared today that his con fession was false, and that not one of the three knew anything about th 'murder. Mrs. Rogers and Stellu Bates insist that they were not connected with the crime. DAVID T. GILMORE A SUICIDE. Had Been Told by a Doctor That He Would Become Insane. Paterson, August 3. David T. Gil more, farmer mayor of Paterson, in a fit of despondency ended his life this morning at his home. A pistol shot aroused his family at 8:30 o'clock, and his son Bert found him lying on the Hoor In his night clothes with a re- volver in his hand, his face covered with blood. The bullet had penetrated the right eye and gone through th! brain. Death was instantaneous. Ill-health is believed to have been the cause of the tragedy. Mr. Gilmdre had consulted specialists during the week and one of them told him that he was a victim of Bright's disease and that he would ultimately lose the use of his limbs and become insane. An hour before the shooting Mr. Gil more's son met him at the bathroom door and complained of being ill. "I'm sorry for you, Bert, my son," the father remarked, and then he re tired to his room. Mr. Gilmore was in good financial elr- cumstances. He was a larg," real estate owner and did a profitable life insur ance business. He was sixty years old. His wife and five sons survive him.

PAUL'S CATHEDRAL NEEDS BRACING UP It Will Take More Than a Million to Make Repairs. London, August 23. A full report is expected soon from Somers Clarke, the architect in charge of St Paul's, but there seems to be small question In spite of the denials of the dean that the chapter Is seriously worried over the condition of the cathedral, whose foun dations have been weakened by bad draining coupled with extensive ex cavations in connection with railroad and sub-surface work. It is stated on good authority that prompt and extensive repairs estimated to cost $1,100,000 are imperative to in sure the safety of the historic building. As the cathedral authorities are de cidedly pressed for funds it is not im probable that the public may be ap pealed to. v At NOT HUNTING PEACE.

He said he was not going to New York to hold a con ference with any presidents of the coal carrying railroads. So far as he knew th situation was unchanged.

Pleasant Way to Drive Away the Blues A food that will bring back health and rosy cheeks to the sick, as well as please the palate of the healthy, is a pretty good food to knoJ about. A lady In Minneapolis says: "I am such an enthusiast upen the subject of Grape-Nuts that I want to state a few instances of its value that have come under my personal experience. "I was taken ill with a serious stom ach trouble, so ill that the slightest movement caused me pain and I could take nothing into my stomach or retain even medicine or water. I had been two days without nourishment when my husband suggested trying Grape Nuts. The nurse prepared some with warm water, sugar and cream, and I took it, hesitatingly at first, until I found it causedme no pain, and for ten days I took no other nourishment. The doc tor was surprised at my improvement, and did not resent my attributing the speedy cure to the virtues of Grape Nuts. He said he had a case on rec ord of a teething baby who grew rosy and fat on the same diet. "Grape-Nuts are so dainty and deli cious that It appeals to the whole household, and whenever husband or I feel generally 'out of sorts' we try con fining ourselves exclusively to the food for a day or two with the happiest re sults. "For a year I have had fcr a neigh bor a delicate girl an epileptic. When I first knew her she was a mere shad ow, weighing seventy pounds and sub ject to fearful attacks, having as many as twelve and sixteen convulsions in a day. At such times she took no nour ishment whatever. She had never tried Grape-Nuts, and as any food! seemed to increase her trouble at such times it was with difficulty I persuaded her to try it. But I told her of my experi ence and induced her to try a few spoonfuls. "The taste delighted her. and ever since she has made it her chief article of diet. The result has ben wonderful. Her improvement is the subject of re mark with all who know her. The at tacks are less frequent and violent, and she has gained twenty pounds since last November, and her family attrib ute her Improvement solely to Grape Nuts."

The grand circuit meeting at the Readville track ended this afternoon. The great feature was Dan Patch's mile in 2:00 in his effort to break Star Pointer's figure of 1:59 on this track five years ago today. Dan Patch made a great bid in his first heat to get inside the record, going the half in 59 seconds flat and then breaking. Driver Mc Henry immediately slowed up the pacer, driving him home at a jog. ' In aconi attempt th gelding paced a mile in 2:00, breaking his own mark by half a second. Dan Patch had to face a cold, strong wind a part of each mile. He was started out with two running horses for pace makers. After the first mile Driver McHenry st'Ated that the horse started away at a terrific clip and was settled into his stride at the half mile. Just beyond that point McHenry says the pacer struck a brace on his gig, scoring his leg and going to the first break he has ever, made when at his speed. On -Dan Patch's second attempt he was a second and a quarter behind his first trial at the half. He came home at what looked like a record breaking clip, but the Judges said the time was 2:00. Time by quarters 0:30, 1:00, 1:30, 2:00. o BASE BALL Results of Contests in Four Leagues Yesterday. NATIONAL. LEAGUE. St. Louis, August 23.

TRAITORS 0 AID Id the Conflict Between White and Blue Squadrons Suspicious Signals From Shore Apparently Giving In formation to the Invading Fleet Admiral Higgin ". son Put to Sea Last Night Supposedly on Intelli gence of the Approach of the " White " Squadron, Which Has the Assistance of an Overcast Sky and East Winds Good Night for Running a Blockade. Rockport, Mass., August 23. The line of battleships of Admiral Higginson's fleet, which are defending a lengthy strip of the New England coast from a foreign fleet, put to sea under, urgent orders at 9 o'clock tonight, indicating that some news has been received of Commander Pillsbury. The weather conditions at 10 o'clock were slightly in favor of the enemy, the sky being overcast and an easterly blow prevail ing. Many dispatches came during the early evening, the tenor of them indi cating that the 'white" squadron was not far at sea, off the Isles of Shoals, off Portsmouth. At 10 o'clock tonight the cruiser Olympia was inside the islands, the Brooklyn was cruising to seaward off shore and the Decatur waa patrolling Portsmouth harbor. With Admiral Higginson's battleships bound northward It would appear that Commander Pillsbury is expected to make his run in toward land tonight off either Portsmouth or York harbors. This afternoon it was understood that one commander of Pillsbury's cruisers have been reported off Rockland, Me. This is a long distance beyond the northerly limit of the blockade line, but it was suggested that either the enemy was making a feint to draw a preponderance of the fighting strength of Admiral Higginson's fleet to Port could be fiiade Into Massachusetts bay or else Commander Pillsbury desired in formation as to blockade conditions. The "blue" squadron officers are cer tain that the enemy has its own in telligence bureau along shore and has landed officers at Rockland, Maine, and Provincetown, Mass. Suspicious sig KANSAS STORMS.

VESSELS SIGHTED. Rockport. Mass., August 23. A signal man cf the "blue" squadron at 11 o'clock tonight reported to the naval base officials that he sighted three large vessels going to the northward at a fourteen-knot clip, but they were too far off shore for him to identify them. It is presumed that Admiral Higginson made a wide sweep on Mas sachusetts bay before running up the coast. Soon after 1 o'clock two torpedo boats appeared off here, and it Is learned that they were detached from the battle ships and ordered back to patrol the harbor in the neighborhood. Many offi cers have conjectured that Commander Pillsbury would delay his attack as long as possible, and then by strategy endeavor to strike the naval base. ' The return of the torpedo boats di ! not surprise those who are keeping a close watch on the situation here. Something must have gone wrong with the line of communication during tha evening perplexing the naval officers. The wires at several points are report ed crossed or cut and some messages received were rather mixed up. An ex traordinary effort was being made at a late hour to determine if the breaks along the line were from natural causes or the. result of the enemy's plans In view of what has been happening in the central station. There is now some wonderment If Admiral Higginson will find the "white" squadron at the nortu end of his line. THE ALLEGED FRAUDS UNLOADING TRANSPORTS Is Not to Be Made the Snbject of an Investigation. Washington, August 23. In regard to sensational newspaper reports hint ing at gross irregularities and fraud in unloading United States transports at ports in the Philippines, and declar ing that a searching investigation is about to be made to discover the guilty parties, Frederick E. Rittman. auditor of the war department, stated most persistently today that no special investigation is being conducted by him in that matter. The charges were to the effect that the tonnage of the smaller Philippine ciscces which heretofore have been used to take transport stores ashore was In a number of cases falsely net dow,n at higher figures. Payment for the service of the cascoes was made In proportion to their tonnage, 'and the reports allege that the government had suffered loss by false statements. Mr. Rittman states that in the or dinary course the routine business of the war department has supplied him with a schedule showing the registered tonnage of all of the little Filipino craft. This will be used in the ex amination of the quartermaster's ac counts, and every delinquency thus can be brought to light. The auditor makes the point, however, that the matter is not to be made a subject of spe'il Investigation, but simply to be dealt with as a routine affair. o RAIN BILLED FOR TODAY. Washington.
