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
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
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
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

liott; second, Fulford, Cubberly and
Elliott; third, Woodruff, Fulford and
Elliott: fourth, Fulford, Cubberly, Hill

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. Ful
ford and Brewer got second money,
killing nine each and Hill and Daly
captured third money, killing eight
each. The day was wound up with
a contest between Murphy and Brew
er, 25 birds, 21 yards, purse $50. Brew
er killed 23 birds und Murphy 17.
TRAGEDY AT A FIRE.
Two Firemen Cremated in tbe Burn
ingofst. 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
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.

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.

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
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.

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
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
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
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.
