THE SCR ANTON TKIBUNE-TnUBSDAT MORNING. DECEMBER 3, 1896.
REMARKABLE FATE OF PEDRO ROXAS Spain Deports tbe Leadioc Maa of Manila to Centa. M1LLI0N1ARE BETRAYED BY HIS WIFE lie Wat to Have Been the First Preaident of the Philippine llepub lie, llnd Spain llecn Whipped. Told Ilis Wife, W ho Confessed to a Faithless Clergyman. New York, Dec. 2. The Sun prints the following remarkable story of the late of Pedro lloxas, the leading man of .Manila and the man who had been lil. kid out as the lirst president of the new Philippine republic in case the re bellion against the Spanish rule on the Islands was successful. The story has to do with Koxas' wife and her con fessor, who Is alleged to have violated the sacred vows of secrecy. Koxas was a sugar planter. He was a mestizo, or half caste, his father be ing a Spaniard and his mother a na tive of the islands. As a sugar planter and exporter of sugar and hemp. Pedro Koxas accumulated a fortune. He was llnelv educated, speaking Knglish, Spanish, Tagaloy (the native language) and Chinese. He was broad-minded nnd libel tl, and gradually came to be looked on as the most progressive of nil the native citizens of the islands. He was at the fore in all improve ments. He was the organizer of the electric light company, the street rail road company, the bank, and most of the other Institutions or modern civi lization that have been introduced in the city of Manila or elsewhere on the Islands. He was at the head of the educational system ond of most of the churitii'S, and it was the custom' on Mondays nnd Fridays of each week for nil the beggars in the city, number ing :tfi to 4011, to gather in the front yard, where he would give each a pack age of rice and would then distribute copper coins. He came to be beloved by everybody except the Spanish government. The Ppanlsh dislike of him was natural, bemuse his desire for progress was not In keeping with the bigotry and In tolerance of their government. It was natural when the revolution ngalnst Spanish misrule broke out months ago that the meszos who uprose should turn to Pedro Hoxas as a leader, or for I'licouragi'ment at least. Hut the in terests of Koxas were so great that he would not risk them. He was counted ns worth at least JI5.000.0U0, and his pos sessions were In all parts of the Island. At the first overt act on his part all would be confiscated, so he could not openly espouse the cause of the in surrectionists. Hut an Implied prom ise to accept the presidency of the new repulillca Flllpplna when that republic came was different. He could do that. THE ItELIGIOUS WIFE. Pedro Koxa's wife, the story goes, was a woman bound up In her religion. She was a woman educated almost as well as her husband. She was hand some. She had most of the generous traits of her husband, but she lacked the important one of discretion. Pedro kept from her at first the news that he would be the first president of the republic; not that he didn't trust her, but he feared the lack of discretion. He vus careful to have nothing to do with the Insurrectionists and not on nny one net of his could the Spaniards base a charge that he was even a sympathizer with the men who were struggling for their Independence. 'Hut one day In an unguarded moment he confided to his wife the plan that was on foot to make him president. This she told to her confessor. If her confessor had been n faithful Catholic It would have made no difference. But this confessor, the sti.ry says, thought more of currying favor with the government than he did of his vows, and she had no sooner confessed to him than he told of the confession to the Spanish officers. It came back to Pedro's ears quick ly, even before the otllcials hod time to net: and In a rage he accused his wife of having conspired to ruin him. She denied It, and he rushed at her and attempted to choke her. Hut he was overpowered by the help that came in response to her screams. Here was the excuse of the govern ment to get rid of Pedro without any scandal. The olllcials pretended to be lieve in his loyalty to the goverlment. They had "pity" for him. They said he must surely be suffering from tem porary aberration of mind or he never would have assailed his wife so sav ngely. They said nothing at all about the charge of disloyalty. They said that the doctors on the island were in competent to treijjt a case so serious as his, and that he needed the best of European treatment and a change of scene. He must have it instantly, and in less time than it takes to tell It he was placed aboard a ship under the care of a physician. The ship sailed away to the penal colony of Ceuta, In Africa. There Pedro Koxas was land ed. There he is today, it is said, and there he will stay until death or a republic release him. With him once safely out of the coun try, the next step was to confiscate his property. This was done. Every foot of ground he owned, every share of stock he owned, every house and every thing in every house, even down to the last spoon, was seized. The woman who had caused his downfall through her want of discretion was turned out on the Btreet a beggar. Not satisfied with that, the Spaniards trumped up a charge against P. L. Koxas, the cousin of Pedro. If Pedro was a trait or, they said, It must be in the blood of the family. So they confiscated the millions owned by V. L. Koxas and turned him and his family out to starve. So the story ends. SENSATION Al LA PLATA. Murderer Matthews it Removed to Baltimore Tor Safe Keeping. Baltimore, Dee. 2. Mrs. Emma Ir win, indicted as an accessory to the murder of her husband, James J. Ir win, of which crime George Matthews was found guilty at La Plata. Md., last week, will be tried In Haltimore. Eleven Jurors had been accepted In the trial of the woman at La Plata today, when her attorney created a sensation by filing a petition for removal. The court granted the request. State Attorney Posey, of La Plata, petitioned the court for the removal of George Matthews to the Baltimore Jail, dclarlng that public sentiment was such that the convicted murderer was not safe in the La Plata Jail. Mat thews was accordingly brought here tonight. RECORD OF W1NQ SHOTS. The First Money is Again Divided at the Trenton Matches. Trenton, N. J., Dec. 2. The crack wing shots of the country, who are gathered here had some fine suort at the Inter-State Fair grounds today, but the contest for the championship cud held by Elliott did not take plaea owing to the willingness of only three men to compete. Six miss and out events took up the greater part of the day. The money was divided as follows: First event, Lott, Woodruff and El liott; second, Fulford, Cubberly and Elliott; third, Woodruff, Fulford and Elliott: fourth, Fulford, Cubberly, Hill and Woodruff; fifth, Fulford, Elliott and Cubberly: sixth, Lott, urewer. Fents and Fulford. A ten bird shoot was the next event. Elliott, van Dyke, Woodruff and Tlmmlns killed all their birds and divided first money.

Monica's Church. Atlantic City, N. J.. Dec. 2. St. Mon ica's Catholic church, situated in the lower section of the city, known as Chelsea, was burned to the ground this morning between 8 and 10 o'clock. When the building collapsed there were several firemen on the inside, who were caught in the debris, two of whom were killed. They are: William Dougherty, aged 4K. former assistant engineer of the lire department; Thomas Lennlg, agvd 32, engineer of the chemicul engine. The tlames were first discovered while Father Peters was celebrating mass at 8 o'clock, and is believed to have been caused by a defective Hue. The loss is JM.OOO; insurance. 12.C00. COAL TRADE CONDITIONS Tbe Market Has Improved on Account of Seasonable Weatber No Chance in Prices is Expected. New Tork, Dec. 2. Anthracite coal trade conditions. It is announced, have improved of late on account of the more seasonable weather. No change in prices is expected this year, and It is understood that the September schedule will be adhered to until 1807. During that year an era of prosper ity is confidently looked for by those Interested in the trade. The mining and carrying companies report new orders at tide water very light, but It is claimed that prices are not far from the September circular. There Is au thority for the statement that most of the coal that has been moved In the last three months and is being shipped at present was sold fully 25 cents per ton below the September basis. Cut ting of prices has been done by indi vidual operators nnd through Jobbers. There is plenty of coal at the west and better prices have been secured than In any tide water market. Coal has been accumulating at the east, but continued cold weather is expected to relieve the market. It can be safely assumed that, although the agreement between the nnthraclte coal presidents nominally expires on Jan. 1 next, no change will be made In the conduct of the trade. The agreement runs on subject to thirty days notice. GET THE BEST. One year ago The Tribune compiled its political handbook, and although It was a first attempt, the compilation was easily superior to any similar publication in Northeastern Pennsylvania, and met with a very encouraging sale. It made a vol ume of about 100 pages. This year every Important feature of the former Issue is retained, the whole being corrected und brought up to date, and In addition a val uable mass of the new statistical and gen. cral information is added, together with an exhaustive review of the local and na tional political activities of this presi dential year. The Annual for 1S97 will probably contain over 200 pages possibly 250 and every line of it will have been edited and composed in this office. Among the contents will be: The complete official vote of Lacka wanna, Luzerne, Wayne, Wyoming, Susquehanna and Bradford counties. Rosters of the county olllcials and court calendars of those counties. Postal Information, with list of post masters in Lackawanna county. Eastern and National league base ball averages, bicycle and racing records and many other sporting statistics and records. Internal revenue statistics. Coal trade statistics. Proceedings and platforms of the po litical conventions of 1S9G, with list of the Presidents, Vive-Presidents, Cab inet officers and Speakers of the House since the government was founded. History of American tariff legislation. Digest of State laws relating to mar riage, divorce, voting qualifications and interest rates. Roll of the Fifty-fifth Congress and of the next Pennsylvania Assembly; also list of state officials. Very complete digest of official census statistics. A digest of copyright and patent laws.

And a vast mass of miscellaneous infor mation, all valuable and timely, but too voluminous to refer to In detail. We can assure the reading public of Northeastern Pennsylvania that The Tribune Political Handbook for 1897 will be by far the best publication of Its kind ever prepared In this state. It will answer thousands of questions of all kinds, such as continually arise In every household, and will be an indispensable reference book In the six counties wherein It will be offered for sale. Notwithstanding this large Increase In its scope, the price will remain 25 cents. Note to Advertisers A few desirable pages yet remajn open. it n:vit:i Railroad t o Issue Cler ical Orders.

LIVE NEWS FROM THE OLD WORLD Egypt Must Now Refund Expenses ol tbe Doojola Expedition. THE ACTION OF CAISSE RESCINDED France's and Russia's Objections Finally 8ustainedRnmors Per sist That the Situation is Critical Despite OlDcial Denialstierman Political Sccret"llamburg's Uig Strike. Alexandria, Egypt. Dec. 2. The court of appeals today issued Its deci sion in the famous case of the Calsse of the Egyptian debt and the govern ment, and condemned the latter to re pay the funds advanced by the Cnlsse for the purposes of the Anglo-Egyptian expedition to Dongola. The commission of the Egyptian debt, otherwise the Calsse, on March 25 lust decided to advance from the re serve funds $2,500,000 needed to meet the expenses of the British-Egyptian expedition to Dongola, and eventually did so. The English, German, Italian and Austrian members of the commis sion voted in favor of the proposition. The Kussiun and French members vot ed against it. Almost immediately af terward the representatives of the Paris syndicate of Egyptian bondhold ers took steps to institute proceedings against the Calsse for advancing this, and the mixed trlhunul, on June 8, de cided against the government, stating that the advance wus made in viola tion of all existing decrees, and con demned the government to repay the money advanced and enjoined the com missioners from advancing any fur ther money for the war expenses. The Egyptian government and the four commissioners referred to then lodged an appeal against this decision, and the matter eventually came before the court of appeals, with the result an nounced in the above dispatch. GERMAN POLITICAL SECRETS. They Are Expected to Come Out in a Berlin Libel Suit. Berlin, Dec. 2. The trial of Heir Lockert, Baron von Luetzow, Herr f io etz. Herr Uerger nnd Herr Foellmer, the Journalists, who are charged with libelling Count von Eulenuerg, Baron Marshal von Biebersteln and Prince Alexander von Hohenlohe commenced today. The case arises from the two fold versions of the czar's and Emperor William's toast at Breslau, and the alleged libels are contained In com ments on the modtlled official version of the toast in asserting that the pub lication of the lirst version, which the libel construed us unfriendly to Ger many, was due to the irresponsibility of the government and to English in fluences. Herr Leckcrt refuses to divulge the mime of the person who gave him the information upon which he based his criticism, but he is believed to be a Ber lin official. The trial Is causing a sensation among political circles, as It is expected to reveal the workings of the court clique, which, domlnuted by the former minister of the interior. Count Bolho von Eulenberg, the hit ter's cousin, the present court marshal, and Hlc hthofen, the ex-chlef nf police, is credited with bringing about the downfall of C.enerul von Caprlvl, tne predecessor of Prince Hohenlohe as Imperial chancellor. They are also charged with being the instigators of the press war waged for a year past against Prince Hohenlohe, the chan cellor, and Baron Marshal von Bieber steln, the minister for foreign affairs. This clique has heretofore been sup posed to enjoy the confidence of Em peror William, and Prince Hohenlohe and Baron von Biebersteln, both of whom are to be called to the witness stand, intend to expose the whole plot of tile clique's attempts to force them to resign. Herr Leckert and Baron von Luet zow were examined at length, and the latter admitted that he was the chief author of the articles complained of, adding that Herr Leckert hinted that he had obtained the story of the changed versions from an official of the foreign ollice. HAMBURG'S BIG STRIKE, Men Willing to Arbitrate, but the Employers Decline. Hamburg, Dec. 2. At meetings which were attended by about eight thousand strikers this morning, reso lutions were udopted providing for the acceptance. In behalf of the strikers, of the proposition made by the Chief of Police, the president of the munici pal council and the chairman of the Trades' court, that the dispute of the dockers and their employers be submit ted to a court of arbitration composed of the officials mentioned and. in addi tion, one leading employer and four labor representatives, the decisions of this court to require a majority of six out of the eight votes. The represen tatives of the strikers also selected the four men to represent them in the court of arbitration. At a meeting of the employers' union today it was unanimously resolved to reject the proposal to submit the dock ers' dispute to a court of arbitration. RACING MEN IN SESSION The Board of Review of the National Trotting Association Considers Seme Important Track Cases. New York, Dec. 2. The Board of Review of the National Trotting asso ciation resumed lis sessions at the Murray Hill hotel today. The sensational case of the pacing gelding, Charley P.. which, although the board has an abundant mass of business of a routine nature to act upon, is the important feature of the annual meeting, was the lirst question to be taken up today. Mr. Keed, a lawyer, from Boston, ap peared for Gormley and Fitzgerald. Fitzgerald himself was the first wit ness. He said that he knew Clark. He talked abut the horse at iMystic park. Medford, and Clark said he was the owner of the animal. He (Clark) bought the horse without knowing of his previovus doings and had trotted him honestly. The well-known driver, John M. Ramsey, was the next witness, and said he trained and drove Charley P. in 1S96 for Fitzgerald. Lawyer Reed followed with a strong appeal for Fitz gerald, in which he demanded that Fitzgerald be restored to the privi leges of the trotting turf. He also de manded that punishment be meted out to the guilty parties in the case, and asked for the reinstatement of Driver Ramsey. The reinstatement of the horse was also asked for on the ground that It had been used as an Instrument of fraud. Intentionally. The matter was laid over until the execution ses sion after the adjournment of the meeting today. The board next took up the case that Is of ten years' standing. In 1884 a race was trotted at Dover. N. H., which was given to a mare named Belle Sargent. There was some foul ing In the race. Belle Sargent had won two heats and a horse called Roger D. one heat, after which Mercedes won the next two, a foul occurred in the sixth. and though Mercet'es won the heat and consequently the "aces. The Judges decided It "no heaf'and after ward awarded the race to Belle Sar gent on a walk over. The board In 188S decided that the Judges erred. The appeal in the case of Derby Prin cess and Fred 8.. In the Transylvania takes at Lexington last summer also went over. The John R. Gentry-Joe Patchen hipped rome race at Belmont park. Philadelphia, was held over in like manner, after some evidence had been taken. Johnson and Colt appealed from the decision of the Judges at Providence, It. I., last September when they re versed the placing of the Cleveland horseman McDuff. in the third heat, placing him sixth after having pre viously awarded him third. Another case of -ringing" was brought to light in the appeal of C. H. Cook", of Hampden, Conn. Cooke bought a mnre called "Hampden Girl" from one Foote, horse dealer In New Haven. Cooke made the purchase for Charles Roberts, of New Haven. Foote did not disclose any of the mare's an tecedents and she went on racing; in New England until at Haverhill, Mass.. she was identified as Wahnetah. 2.1SVi, a western campaigner. This case shar ed the fate of all the others in being referred to the executive session. With the vast amount of business before the board It is not likely that the meeting will adjourn lefore Saturday. BOWER'S AWFUL CRIME. Kills His Wife, Wounds Two Other Persons and Commits Suicide. lie Kalb. III.. Dec. 2. Henry L. Bower, with a butcher's knife killed his wife and so badly wounded his moth-er-ln?law and his little daughter this morning that they may die.

Higher cables from London and an advance in American rail way securities there stimulated purchas es of stock at the opening of the Stock Exchange here today and the upward movement, which set In yesterday, made further progress during the early trading.
