They btated that tho president mnde a frank declaration as to what was tak ing plneo between the two govern ments and concluded with these words: "I pray God that wo may be able to keep peace." The impression left with tho delegation, however, was that he did not expect a peaceable nd juptment. In olllctest confidence Mr. McKlnlcy outlined the course of com munications between Washington and IMadrltl. He Rtated that all now de pended on despatches to lie communi cated and lCccivcd probably within forty-e.'jiht hours The renponse of Kijoln to a niossiiRe rabled It by this government was ex pected hourly nnd surely would be re ceived within twenty-four hours.

They Ho.vUU KouiiiIh nt I Syracuse with No Itrsnlt. Syracuse, N. Y., March 31. Tommy White, of Chicago, and George Dix on, the champion featherweight pugil ist, fought a twenty-round draw ue fore the Empire Athletic club, oi thl.s city, tonight. Two thousand people saw the bout, which was a thoroughly scientific one. White had the advunCigo of reach, and made the most of it, keeping his left going into Dixon's fare, with the effect of effectually preventing the rushes of his opponent doing any dam age. Dixon's blows had a much, great er force, but he failed to land as often as hie antagonist, nnd although the crowd yelled for a White decision, they were well satiatled with tlie Judgment of tho referee. The colored boy was favorite at odds of two to one and four to three. TRIAL OF KARDITZ AND OIORQU. They Am CliurK,'d with nn Attempt to Amns'i'i'ite King George. Athens, March 31.

Hlnman says It Is not possible by fortifications at Gull Island nnd FIsher'B Island to prevent foreign warships entering Lons Island Sound from tho eust. Mr. Hlnman Is a Sound pilot. "It does not appear dif ficult to me," ho says, "for any vessel to como throunh the race. If Fisher's Island was lined with disappearing guns and Gull Island had all the mod ern ordnance, It would prove Ineffectual against nn enemy's battleship, well piloted. "Foul weather, which Is frenuent, would carry It through In tafety, and It could steam through the Sound, and never bo discovered until It challenged New Haven by the nolso of Its own guns." STEELE HAS A HEARING. Clinrgcd by tho llnnk I'xnminnr with .Unking i'n I mi ItcpnrlH. "Philadelphia, March 31. 'William Steele, formerly cashier of the col. lapsed Chestnut Street National bank, charged by Bank Examiner Ilnrdt with making false reports of the bank's con dition to the comptroller of the cur rency, was given a hearing today be fore United States Commissioner Ed munds. George M. Collin, deputy comptroller of tho currency; Bank Ex aminer Hardt, George II. Earle, re ceiver of the bank, and all of tho direc tors of the Institution gave testimony. According to the evidence, tho late William M. Slngerly, president of the bank, received largo loans from the bank. Tho comptroller admonished him to cease borrowing. At that tlmo he owed $578,000, nnd when the bank failed his Indebtedness was $800,000, while the collateral security was esti mated at $".",000. Bank Examiner Hardt said eight reports made by Cashier Steele during 189C nnd 1S07 to the comptroller were all false with re spect to the loans, and in some there was u suppression of facts regarding overdrafts. Ho testified to each In de tail. Receiver Earle told of n conver sation he had with Mr. Steele in which tho cashier said Mr. Slngerly, would come to the bank and get the money from the ensh drawer without the knowledge of any of the directors and would place In a private drawer col lateral. This latter was placed In the books as cash Items. Steele told the receiver that in doing this he was merely obeying orders. The directors' testimony showed they did not know the extent of Mr. Sln gerly's Indebtedness. In October, 1S96, tbe comptroller notified them he owed $.",78,000. A meeting was held and Mr. Slngerly promised to reduce the amount. Instead, It was increased. Tlie hearing wns then continued until next Wednesday, Mr. Steel renewing his bail bond of $10,000.

KLOPSCII'S RETURN FROM HAVANA Relief Work Wo Extended to 205,000 RcconcenlradoR. HE IS SATISFIED WITH HIS WORK Over too Cuban Towns .Succored. Ills Uiiluronco with .Miss liiuton. They Aro Not l.tknly to Work Togcthor Agntii--U'cll 'fronted by (ho Spaniard. Key West, Fin., March 31. Special Commissioner Louis Klopsch was on the steamship Havana, bound for Tampa last night. He expects to re turn to Cuba In about ton days, after visiting Now York and Washington. He said: "Supplies have now reached 402 towns In Culm, and have been dis tributed to 205,000 reconcentrados. Tho work Is progressing as favorably as could be expected. The Province of Plnar del Rio was attended to yester day. The amount of supplies there are sufllclent to stave off starvation for about ten days. We expect to get more provisions Into that province before tho expiration of the period. So far as tho Spaniards are concerned, I must say I have never had an unkind word or look from any of them while engnged In re lief work. I do not believe the much talked of riot In Haaim is probable. I saw nothing to warrant expectation of sucli nn event. ' Regarding Miss Clara Barton of the Red Cross society, Mr. Klopsch had little to pay for publication, but It can bo assorted that he is not likely to co operate with her further In the distri bution of supplies. Mr. Klopsch ob served: "The policy of Investigating first and acting afterward may apply In some cases, but It does not apply when you aro trying to save thousands from death by starvation." A New York business man who ar rived from Havana last night suld: "I went to the province of Plnar del Rio before relief reached there. All tho way to Consolaclon del Sur, whenever the train stopped at a station the recon centrados crowded around the cars begging for food and money. They were emaciated nnd covered with sores. I don't see how the wretched beings can live through another season. At Artemlsa the condition of the recon centrados was, perhaps, more ptllablo than nt any other point on the way to the town of Plnar del Rio. In Havana I found nothing thnt would warrant an impartial observer In expecting an anti American riot." WIRE AND ROD TRUST. New Combination ill Tnko Charge oiTlpvelnml I'lnnt Tndnv. Cleveland, O., March 31. Tho newly formed wire and rod trust will tomor row take charge of the big Cleveland plants of th H. P.

Anybody desiring employ ment with the new company must make application on or before April 3. ' One thousand hands are employed at the H. P. Nail works. While no no tice was posted in tho American or Consolidated mills, It is said the same conditions will go into effect In those mills. There are about 1,200 men employed nt the American Wire works and S00 ut tho Consolidated mill. The new trust will control about 73 per cent of the country's total output of rods, wire, wire nails and wire pro ducts. JEWS IN THE UNI I'lJD STATES It is Ektitnnted That They Number About Ono Million. From Leslie's Weekly. As to the number of .Tews nt nwsnnt living in the United States, no exact statistics are attainable, as the govern ment does not classify the population by religions In tho enumerations for the decennial census. But more or less careful estimates have been made from time to time, from which David Sulz- nerger, ot Philadelphia, has compiled nn approximate statement of the growth of our Semitic population. From estimates made on tho authority of the Rev. Gershom Mendes Selxas, In 1S12, It is infanvd that there were at least 400 Jews In New York at that time. Tho Jewish population In Pennsylva nia Included from eighty to one hun dred families; In Richmond, Virginia, thirty families; and in Soutli Carolna, about 1.000 souls. The Ilrst systematic attempt to ob tain definite statistical Infmmatlon was undertaken by the Board of Delegates of American Israelites, with the assist ance of tho Fnlon of Americnn Hebrew Congregations, whose committee re ported in 1877 a total population of 1S9, "CC. and in 1SS0 a total of 230,237, In 1SS8, according to Isaac Markens, the population had risen to 400,000. of which 125,000 were credited to Now 'ork, and 114,000 of which landed on these shores between 16S1 and 1S96. The work of gathering the statistics for tho eleventh census (1S90) was committed to Philip 'Cowen, of tho American Hebrew, and he presented tables showing 533 congre gations of Orthodox and Reformed Jews, with 120,196 communicants. The two branches together have .101 church edifices, with an approximate seat ing capacity of 139,82-1. Besides these edifices, 231 halls, etc., are ocupled by congregations, and these have a seat ing capacity or. 23,477. The total value of the synagogue property is $9,751,275, an Increase In ten years of $3,549,697, while tho number of comunicants ad vanced over S0.O00, Coming down to the present day, Mr. Sulzberger says: The total ascertained Immigration since 18S5 Is 411,073, and, adding 74,310 given by Joseph Jncobs In the Jewish Year Book for 1890, the total of Jewish Immigration to the United States since 1881 would he not over 4S3.3S3. And, finally, he gives, in n conservative estimate. 937,800 as tho total number of Jews now settled In the United States. According to his computations, various principal states rank ns fallows in th- size of their Hebrew population: New York, 350. ooo.

Ono Particular In Which Tlioy "Take Aftrr" Their Mnllirrn. From tho Sioux City Journal. A man never ndmlts ho is afraid of a rat or a mouse, and when ho sees a timid woman lleo from one of these undesirable rodents to a place of safety on top of a piece of furniture, or other handy elevation, ho generally assumes an nlr of superiority, laughs at her timidity, scoffs at the Idea of ono of theso creatures Injuring anybody, and oftentimes gets disgusted nt what ho terms "cowardice" But the man who Insists ho Is not afraid of a rat or even a little mouse Is in reality foolish, and this can be demonstrated should ho come In con tact with one of them. You never saw any one who desired to or could coolly handle even a dead rat. Human be ings have a natural dislike for rats. Yesterday afternoon a big, Btalwart man, who looked as If ho might face death without flinching, was passing along Fourth street. When near the corner of Pearl street he emitted a screech that was terrifying and brought the pedestrians along the thoroughfare to a standstill. Tho man wns clasping his leg with his hands and hopping across the street like a bucking bron cho. He shouted as if suffering ex cruciating pain, and several persons went to his assistance. Tho only thing the matter with him was a. young rat had crawled up his trousers leg. The rodent was extricated and extermin ated. Then the big, "brave' man mopped the perspiration from his pale brow and stole sheepishly away. The crowd which had gathered laughed and fell to telling experiences with rats. "While out hunting with a friend "some years ago," said one man, "I saw a similar ense. We wero crossing a wheat stubble when a little mouse run up his trousers leg. He screamed and I thought ho had been bitten by a rattler. He dropped his gun and ran around In a frantic manner until I re moved the rodent." A number of other Interesting ex periences with rats were told, nnd nearly all agreed that after what they had heard and seen a man is Just as much afraid of a rat as a woman. .llKASUUINC THE P.AR I'll. Tho measuring of the earth, which is now going on, Is no simple Job. The width of the ocean can only be ascer tained by astronomical observations. The observers at Greenwich nnd at Washlni ton note each night the exact moment of the rfslng of certain stars, nnd then, by mathematical calculation, turn the difference In time Into distance. This Is corrected nnd corroborated by other ob servations upon other stars, and by a series of experiments, which furnish nn average that Is approximately nrcuratf. Tho difference is seldom moro than .i small fraction of a second, and is at tributed to atmospheric phenomena. The Faelflc ocean Is measured in a slmll.ir manner by Joint observations by tlie Link telescope In California and that of the Imperlnl university of Japan at Tokyo. Tho distance across the United Statis Is found to bo 2,023.3 geographical mll.s from the light-house, six miles north of Cupe May, New Jersey, to the light house six miles south of Punta Arenas, following the 39th parallel of latitude us closely a possible. This Is conceded to bo about tlie mean breadth of the coun try. A glance at the map will show that the United States Is much wider toward the north and much narrower toward the gulf coast, but the 39th parallel Is about as fair an average as can bo drawn. The measurements were mane by triangula tlon that is, by taking observation from fixed landmarks and verifying them by astronomical tests, Tho distance ncross the continent thus obtained Is 110 feit longer than that reported by Bossol's In 1S,"0, and ninety-eight feet longer than Pit reported by Professor Clark In ISM. It has also been discovered that tho ra dius of tho equator is twenty-six aril one-half miles greater than when the earth was last measured, This Is attri buted to errors In former calculations and defective Instruments, rather than to any material change In tho globe. There has been very great Improve ment In scientific apparatus during tha last few years, both as to accuracy and convenience. The Instruments now used are so much superior in every respect to those employed thirty years ngo that moro confidence may bo placed In the re sults of the recent surveys. Tho ofllceM of the coast survey are making some in teresting discoveries In resurvevlnr tlm coast of the United States. They flnrt. for example, that Conev Island Is a mil,' and a half to tho westward of wherj p was twcnty-flvo years ago.

HE KILLED MICHAEL M'NULTY PrlionorOwpR IIU Pardon to tho Un tiring Kll'orts ol John It. Wilson, n Reporter on tho Philadelphia Kyen ing Bulletin, Who Has Worked Hlx tocn Month on tho Case. Harrisburg, March 31. The board of pardons recommended a pardon today for Thomas Campbell, who has served twenty-one years and seven months In tho Eastern penitentiary for tho mur der ot Michael McNulty at Carbondalo, July 4, 1876. Campbell owes his pardon to John R, Wilson, n Philadelphia Evening Bulletin reporter, who was sent by his paper during the latter end ot 1S9G to report on the condition of the Inmates of the penitentiary nt tho tlmo of Judge Gordon's Investigation. Mr. Wilson visited over 100 cells and was Just about to leave the institution when he stopped opposite tho cell In which Campbell had been Incarcerated for over twenty years, and spoke with the man who looked at him so earn estly through the grating. Campbell told tho story of his crime with tears streaming down his face. He said he had llred one shot at a man while under the Influence of drink nnd had killed him. He had been friends with him almost up to the moment of the shooting. They got Into a dispute ns iu who was ueorge Washington. Camp bell said he was a Scotchman and his friend McNulty vowed that ho was an Irishman. They were both drunk and McNulty got angry and ordered Camp bell away. Campbell refused to go and McNulty put his hand on him to make him. In a nt of drunken anger Camp bell pulled out his revolver and llred ono shot at McNulty. He did not know that he had hit McNulty until he was arrested the next morning. Campbell said he had been tried twice and at the last trial sentenced to death. His case aroused much sympathy at the time and his sentence wns commuted to Im prisonment for life by Governor Hart ranft the day he was about to mount the scaffold. Mr. Wilson's sympathies were aroused and he told Campbell that he would either prove conclusively that his sen tence was a Just one or obtain his par don. For sixteen months Mr. Wilson worked on the case unceasingly and went over all the testimony of tho two trials of twenty years ago. He found a lot of testimony brought out subse quent to the trials which showed that Campbell had been convicted on the testimony of Miss Ann Foy, whose tes timony at the coroner's Inquest nnd the trial differed materially. Mr. Wilson prepared the case for the board of par dons, which hr nersnnnllv nrmipil in. day. One of the strongest arguments oucreu was mac me juago wno pre sided ni Campbell's trials was of the opinion that the grade of Campbell's offense was murder of tho second de gree, and that the maximum penalty for the crime under the testimony should have been twelve years. The pardon was unsuccessfully op posed by J. F. Reynolds, who repre sented tho McNulty family. The board refused to commute to life Imprisonment the sentence of John R. Lamb, of Allegheny.
