BISHOP KEANE'sT COURSE
He Will Still Continue to Work for the
Church Regrets That There Has .
Been a "Bureau of Mischief."
New York, Dec. 4. Bishop Kenne,
the former rector of the Catholic uni
versity In Washington, who will sail
tomorrow for Havre, en route to
Rome, arrived In this cltv this after
noon, i
Asked how soon he hoped to return
to America the bishop replied: "Both
the congregation of the propaganda
and the congregation of sacred studies
of which the Holv Father has been
pleased to appoint me consultor, have
their vacation in September and Octo
ber, and I hope to run over her almost
every year and meet the archbishops
who assembly annually In Washington
In October. At the same time is held
the annual meeting of the board of di
rectors' of the Catholic university and
as thev have kindlv requested me to
remain a director I will consider It my
duty to attend the annual meeting
whenever I possibly can.
"The congregation of the propagan
da has superintendence of all the mis
sionary countries In the world. Includ
ing the United States. The congrega
tion of sucred studies has superintend
ence of all th Catholic colleges and
universities in the world. Naturally
It will be especially with the work of
the church in the United States that
I will be consulted and therefore it
shall always be my life work to pro
mote the welfare of religion in Ameri
ca. My appointment t consultor of those
two uunvrvmllons was offered me In
the orlglnul letter of the Holy Fther
dated Sept. 15. That offer I an as
sured holds good, and other honors are
now most kindly ottered to me about
which I prefer to say nothing.
"It Is by no means the ofter of place
or dignity that takes me to Rome. It Is
simply my tllial loyalty and devoted
obedience to the Holy Father, he hav
ing (or the second time most affection
ately expressed his paternal desire that
I shoul I have my peaceful retirement
nnd still consecrate my energies to the
church's welfare. I should be ashamed
of myself If I hesitated for a moment
to comply."
When asked concerning the publish
ed cablegram from the Cardinal secre
tary of state to Msr. Martinelll duted
yesterday Bishop Keane said:
"I very much regret that there has
been a 'bureau of mischief at work
In this country and in Europe, founded
for th manufacture nnd dissemination
of pernicious rumors of all sorts against
certain distinguished Catholic prelates
In this country. I am delighted to see
the crushing blow inflicted upon them
by the telegram from Cardinal llama
cello to the Apostolic Delegate. I hope
tlr? telegram will convince the Ameri
can public that they ought never again
pay any heed to the fabrications of the
'mischief bureau.' "

Havana, Dec. 4. The people of Ha

The only definite news from the

The fight in the Gobernadora Hills

In these dispatches last night, was be

WORKING OF THE MINTS.
Statistics Concerning the Coinage of
Qotd and Silver by the Nations
of the Earth.
Washington, D. C, Doc. 4. The report
of the director of the mint shows In
elaborating details the working of the
mints and essay olfices during the fiscal
year 18, together with statistics of
foreign countries relative to he pro
duction, coinage and n.gnetury condi
tion of each.
The total coinage of gold and silver
by the various countries of the world,
were as follows: Gold, J'-':tl.OX7,4:i.S; sil
ver, $121,610,19; total. $352,67,657,
The total metallic stock and uncov
ered paier In the world was estimated
on January 1, 189U, to be $10,9.!8,GOO,noo.
The director recommends that author
ity be given the secretary of the treas
ury to have experiments made to deter
mine the best means of preventing the
counterfeiting of silver coinage. At
the prevailing price of silver, the dif
ference between the bullion and nomi
nal value of our silver coins, Is about,
one hundred per cent, and this consti
tutes u great temptation for the stamp
ing of such coins by unscrupulous per
sos, afforndlng them an opportunity to
place In circulation counterfeit silver
coins, at about loo per cent, profit as
good as those stamped by the mints,
nnd which cannot be distinguished
from them, even by experts.
TROUBLES OF THE PUGS
The Vexations of the Filzsimmons
Sharkey Affair Increase as the
Days Go By.
San Francisco, Dec. 4. The Fltzslm-inons-Sharkey
fight Is being fought
over and over again on every street
corner of San Francisco today.
Sherkey Is resting easily today and
will be on the street within a week. Dr.
Tauslg, physician' of the Nationnl Ath
letic club and a doctor of unquestion
able reputation, does not hesitate to as
sert thnt in his opinion Sharkey did
not receive any such blow as his back
ers claim Fitzsimmons administered.
A nothei; lending physician who Inspect
ed tho sailor, is of the opinion that
Sharkey was "doped" with iodine to
bear out Earp's claim of foul.
Of all the physicians vho examined
Sharkey, but two are Inclined to be
lieve that he was struck foul.
The purse money had not yet been
paid and from present Indications there
will be u legal battle which will eclipse
the ring encounter. Such men as
Adolph Spreckels, Major McLaughlin.
Mose Gunst, V. A. Greer. Harrison
and Hiram Cook are behind Fitzsim
mons and Julian, whife Sharkey's
friends are few and Inconsequential.
. To add to Fltzsiminon's trouble, suit
was instituted against him today by
J. J. Hatir on a claim for tsm held
In Judgment by Jimmy Carroll, the
lightweight. Carroll was one of Fitz
slinmon's trainers for his fight with
Maher near El Paso. His bill for ser
vices was not paid, and though he
put his claim III Judgment, he never
succeeded in collecting the money. This
will be heard tomorrow.

DASTARDLY CRIME.
An Etifloeer of a Reading Train Knocked
Senseless by a Big Stone Peril
of the Passengers.
Philadelphia. Dec. 4. With the en
gineer lying wounded and senseless In
his cab, a truin on the Reading rail
road dashed through the northwestern
section of the city this morning. The
hundred or more passengers in the
cars were all unconscious of their dan
ger, until they saw the station wh'li by
with no signs of slacking up the train.
There was an Immediate excitement,
and while a murmur of fear went up,
many rushed for the doors to try and
find out the trouble. A short distance
beyond the station the train was
brought to a standstill and a portion
of the mystery cleared up. The train
was running at a rapid rate, when
somebody hurled a large stone though
the cab window, striking Engineer
William II. Ober on the pit of the stom
ach. Such was vhe force of the blow
thnt the egineer was rendered uncon
scious, falling In such a way that a
portion of his body hung out of the
call window.
Fireman Williams was on the other
side of the big boiler and did not hear
the crash of glass, and the train dashed
up Cresson street at Its usual speed,
but without the controlling hand on
the throttle. Colton and Grape streets
were quickly passed, and when the sta
tion hove In sight the train was still
running at a high rate of speed. When
there were no signs of slacking up or
putting on tne brakes. Fireman Will
lams became suspicious for the first
time, and looking over the top of the
boiler, discovered his unconscious chief
anil the danger of the trainload of nas
songers. Clambering over the boiler
ns iiulckly as possible, Williams
grasped the throttle and brought the
tram to a stop a short d stance be
yond the station, and then ran back to
me regular stopping place.
Ober was till unconscious, but was
nuriieu to the hospital. When he hud
recovered sulllciently he told how he
nau liecn stricken down. He coubl p
plain It In no way, as, so far as he
knew, he had not an enemy in the
world. The stone had been found on
tue uoor ot tne cab and Weighed about
three pounds. It was aimarpntlv nn
net of pure malclousness. and so far
the police are completely In the dark
