the company, which has the scheme un
der headway. It consists of damming
the Verde River, about 15 miles north

Princeton authorities of the million
dollar gift reported to have been given
to the university by Andrew Carnegie.
President Woodrow Wilson said to

lutely without foundation so far as he
knew. .
A prominent member of the faculty
expressed great surprise at the news,
but said he knew that Mr. Carnegie
had visited Princeton, and was inter
ested in the university.
Mr. Carnegie did visit Dr. Henry Van
Dyke last spring. Dr. Van Dyke,
when seen this evening at "Avalon"
his home on Bayard lane, said he knew
nothing of the matter.
"Mr. Carnegie visited me one day
last spring in Princeton," said Mr.
Van Dyk?, "but I know nothing of his
plans. Mr. Carnegie is a man who
makes his own plans and usually an
nounces them himself. T havo h.-irl nn

Former President Patton also ex
posed surprise at the report, and said
he would be glad if it were true.

Left the Dutch East Indies for Phila
delphia 240 Days Ago.
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
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.

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
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
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
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
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.

For For Forty Years the Patient Had
Uttered Scarcely a Word.
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.
