PRINCETON SKEPTICAL ABOUT CARNEGIE GIFT Neither President Nor Dr. Patton Has Information of It. Princeton, March 8.

Philadelphia, March S. After a thril ling adventure on a coral reef in the Indian Ocean, ir which the vessel had strangely disappeared, only to steam like a phanloni vessel one week later into the harbor of Colombo, the Brit ish steamship Nithsdale, in command of Captain Haddon, came into the Del aware Capes yesterday, from the Dutch East Indies, with a cargo of sugar, consigned to the Spreckles Sug ar Refinery. Although a new ship, having been built but a little more than a year ago, the Nithsdale holds the world's record for slow voyages by steam, the vessel having besn just 240 days in making the voyage of 11,000 miles to this port. It was on the morning of July 10 that the Nithsdale set sail from Balavia for Philadelphia. After encountering the usual storms peculiar to the Indian Ocean, the vessel stranded in five fathoms cf water on a reef south of Cordiva island, one of the Maldiva group. This was cn September 8. Seven days later ten of the ships' crew landed at Colombo, having escap ed from the stranded vessel in a small boat. Captain Haddon and thirteen men. including the officers, were left on board. . As the Nithdale and her cargo were considered too valuable a prize to leave at the mercy of the seas, wrecking craft were at once dispatched to the scene of the supposed wreck, only to find upon their arrival there that the vessel and its crew had .mysteriously disappeared. After cruising about for some time the wreckers returned to Colombo, with the tidings that the Nithsdale had slipped from the reef and foundered. But the Nithsdale had not gone down. Strange to relate, the officers and crew remaining on board, had, af ter throwing overboard about 400 tons of the cargo, succeeded in working the vessel into deep water, and, although damaged and leaking badly, much to the surprise of the natives who had thought all hands had been lost, the Nithsdale. like a ghostly craft, steam ed into the harbor of Colombo on the night, of September 20, where repairs w ere made before continuing the "voy age to this port. TWO BODIES RECOVERED. Of the Seventeen Men Lost in the Dis aster on the Hudson. Glenns Falls, N. Y. March 8. Only two more bodies of the victims of the Spier Falls tragedy of Saturday were rscovered.

TRUCE DECLARED IN FREIGHT WAR The Mallory Line Promises To Be Good The Southern Kailway Interviewed. Still Obnoxious Contracts Will Be Carried Out Until Their Expira tion on April 1. New York, February 23. The action of the South Atlantic port lines re garding the irregularities of the Mal lory Line, in serving notice last wfeek on the Southern that unless it took action at once about the Mobile route, the Southern would be held responsi ble for a general demoralization of rates has had a salutary effect, at least so far as business for Memphis Is con cerned. For a time there is to be a truce, which will avert a rate war, though whether It will result in any lasting benefit remains to be seen. Some of those damaged by the tactics of the Mallory Line do not express much con fidence in promises made while accept ing the situation for what it Is worth. Vice-President Culp of the Southern came to New York on Tuesday and had a conference with Mr. Mallory. The steamship company refused to make any change in Its position, so far as the Lowenstein Bros, of Memphis are concerned. The consignments of that firm are being handled on a contract, but in stead of being for an indefinite period, it is limited to April 1 of this year. Mr. Culp is said to have made i t plain that practices calculated to demoralize rates would not be countenanced by the Southern, and to have presented the al ternative of conformity to the arrange ment entered into with the Memphis Nashville committee last fall, or having all proportions of through rates agreed upon cancelled. This was not accepted, but a com promise Is understood to have been reached under which positive assuran ces were given that rates would be ob tained by the Mobile route on all shipments, with the exception of those to the Memphis firm, and that that contract, on its expiration, will not be renewed upon any such basis as the terms now In force. Mr. Culp communicated these facts to the South Atlantic port lines and they are forced.. under traffic conditions now prevailing, to coincide with the. moderate view cf Mr. Culp that the Mallory people be taken at their word. This, however, by no means, disposes of all causes of complaint against the Mallory Line, for it is the knifing of rates via St. Louis, and to Arkansas. Oklahoma and Indian territories, and to points In Colordado and Utah. "We are powerless to meat this com petition at present," said an official of an interested road today. "We cannot afford to make it the basis of a rate war under prevailing conditions, with the amount of business moving. We are obliged simply tp grin and bear it until a period is reacnea mat win per mit of a different policy being adopted. "You see, the Mallory people have the best of us in one respect, and that is in their ability to send freight through the Galveston gateway. They are a free-lance there and we have no means now of overcoming that advant age." PRATT WILL REMAIN AT INDIAN SCHOOL Head of Carlisle Institution Reconsid ers Resignation. Carlisle. March 8. Colonel R. H. Pratt, U. S. A., retired, superintendent of the Indian Industrial School here, and who resigned after twenty-five years' service, has been induced to re call his letter of resignation. His consent to remain is conditioned upon the desire of th2 Interior Depart ment to retain -his services at the school. Colonel Pratt was guided in his ac tion by the importunities of hundreds of public men and women, who have witnessed the work that has been ac complished by the Carlisle School under his administration. As the founder of a system for the educational and in dustrial training of the aboriginal youth, it was argued hy tile friends of Colonel Pratt that his retirement would be an irreparable loss. Letters were sent to him from high sources when it became known that he had decided tc quit the work of the school. He was urged to reconsider his purpose and withdraw his letter of resignation. Many of the letters were from mem bers of both branches of congress and from men high in authority. Colonel Pratt was urged to remain even by persons who had not been in sympathy with his methods. So great did the pressure become that he ac cepted an invitation from friends of the Indian cause to visit Washington, and as a result he has yielded to per suasion and has indicated his. willing ness to remain at the head of the school there. STRANGE DISAPPEARANCE. Bridgeport, Conn. March 8 There is much talk over the mysterious disap pearance of Albert N.

Philadelphia, March S. There died In the Pennsylvania Hospital for the In sane on Saturday, one of the most re markable patients even confined in that institution. In the course of the forty years that he had been an inmate he seldom spoke, and acquired the name of "The Silent Man." His name was Manuel Suarez, and he was a na tive of Cuba, where, it is said, he had wealthy relatives. Two score years ago Manuel Suarez was a student of medicine in this city and by reason of hir, polished manners and agreeable personality had the en tree to the most exclusive social circles. He had abundant means, and his fu ture seemed to be bright and hopeful. "Poor Suarez" said a gray-haired practitioner in Philadelphia, who was a classmate of the Cuban. "I remember him well. He was only 22 at the time to which I refer, and a more jovial fel low I never met. An unfortunate love affair was blamed for the unbalancing of his reason, and a Philadelphia girl who is now an honored matron was the object of his affection. They used to say that she jilted the dashing Cu ban. Soon after her marriage to a young merchant. Suarez began to show signs of melancholia. He seldom spoke and one day his friends were forced to have him committed to the asylum. I visited him at intervals, but never by the slightest sign did he show that he recognized me. In fact, he did not ap pear to recognize any one. . i "The attendants often told me that he made his wishes known by means of written messages. He was never violent, and was allowed a great deal of freedom. His family in Cuba sent him regular allowances." With the exception of a woman who was admitted in 1841, when the asylum was first opened, Suarez was the old est inmate. His death was caused by dropsy. The body will be buried in this city.
