Prlnco Henry sailed "for Germany oi tne steamer ueutscniana at 3:45 p m. Tuesday and thus ended his firtl visit to the United States. The day was perfect, being-warm spring-like and sunny. The prince'f last day In America was spent entire ly on board the Deutschland, be hav ing decided not to make a number ol social calls which had been arranged for the forenoon. He breakfasted' ai 8:30 and Immediately retired to hi, cabin, where he spent several houri writing letters. About 10 o'clock he began to receive larewell visits from members of thf party which accompanied him aud var ious officials of Germany in this coun try and of the United States govern ment. Mr. Low was one of his latest cal lers and the prince, in bidding hlrr farewell, gave a hint that he bad some Intention of returning to America foi a second visit. The prince In replying to the mayor said: "I thank the clti lens of New York for all their kind ness to me which I appreciate deeply. If I should return to America I should feel when I reached New York that I waa once more at home." Encouraged by the fine weather Im men8e crowds had steadily gathered about the pier during the day and when the ship sailed all approaches and the pier house were filled with a crowd estimated at 10,000 people. The Deutschlaiid's sailing time wan 3:30 p. m., but it waa 3:45 when flip tain Albers gave the signal to start. The crowd gave a mighty cheer and the prince appeared on the bridge and bowed. The Deutschland backed out Into the North river amid the tootlnc of vessels and all kinds of craft. As she passed down the river she received the same noisy ovation. She passed the Battery exactly at 4 o'clock and the great crowd which had gathered there cheered as the vessel steamed on down the bay. Small Reserves of Wheat Bradstreet'i report for the week says: ; The swelling tide of spring demaud Is reflected in the reports of excep tional activity at leading Eastern tex tile markets, of large distributions of dry goods, tollhlng and kindred lines in the West and Northwest, and by Improved Jobbing trade reports from such cities as St Louis and Kansas City. Wheat was buoyed up by the report of the smallest reserves In farmers' hands by the government, Bradstreet's calculations, based on the - above. pointing to a very small Increase In the visible and Invisible supplies In view of the record-breaking crops In this country and in the world at large. This steadied prices for a time, but they weakened later on the report of the' breaking of the drouth In - the Southwest and adequate supplies of moisture to winter wheat In other sec tions. Corn and oats for the first time lh a lrng while broke loose from the premier cereal, reports of heavy rains checking receipts aiding the govern ment report of the smallest corn re serves In ?0 years and limited farm supplies of cats. Old Lincoln Farm In Indiana. The -ok! Lincoln farm in the heart of Lincoln City will be sold for delinquent taxes. For years the taxes on the farm have not been paid and the county officials decided to offer the farm for salo. Attempts heretofore have been made to turn the farm Into park and to secure from congress an appropriation for this purpose and this may be done after the farm shall pass into other hands. The old cottage that stood on the farm, In which Abraham Lincoln lived, was removed to New York many years ago and was sold for several thousand dollars. The commissioners of Speu- er county have received many letters from people all over the country wanting to buy the farm and bidders will doubtless be numerous when the tax sale shall be held. The mother of Lincoln Is burled on the farm. The burial lot is kept In good condition by the commissioners. The county received a deed for the lot several years ago. The late Governor Mount of this state advocated turning the farm Into a park and brought the matter to the attention of the legislature, but noth ing was done. Mr. Carnegie Gives More Libraries. Andrew Carnegie was the chief guest ' and' principal speaker at the seventh annual dinner of the New York Library club. Among the other guests w.jre 300 librarians of New York city and vicinity. Mr. Carnegie, on being Introduced, plunged at once Into the subject of libraries for rural communities and said: , "I have been much gratified by the many applications of small communi ties In the West for libraries. And in this connection I will Bay that as I knew I would have the pleasure of din lng here tonlijht I felt I cught to do something to deserve that pleasure. I have dealt with about 40 of thso ap plications today and am rial to say that In all except perhaps two cases i have seen my way to grant them." After the dinner Mr. Carnegie was isked for a list of the libraries he had just endowed, but said he was unable to give It. He said, however, that the application for a library from Al bany was one of them and he thought the amount he had given was $175,000. Mrs. Soffel Indicted. Indictments In three cases against Mrs. Soffel, wife of ex-Warden Sof- le. growing out of the escape of the Biddle brothers from Jail on Jan. 30, were considered by the grand Jury and true bills returned. Should Mrs. Soffel be convicted upon the three charges the maximum ag gregate sentence that could be Im posed upon her would be IS years In prison and a fine of $2,500. The charges are separate Indictments for felonious assault and battery upon Charles Reynolds and James 0. Mc- Carey, Jail guards. Reynolds was shot by one of the Biddies and McCarey was thrown over or Jumped over the railing from the cell tier and was se riously hurt on the night of the es cape. It will probably be a month before Mrs. Solfel is brought to trial. Boston Strike Settled. Through the united efforts of rep resentatives of the great mercantile bodies of Boston, seconded by the chief executives of the city and state, In a conference with the recognized leaders of organized labor, the great strike of freight handlers and kindred trades repre sented in the allied freight transporta tion council was broken. Fully 20,000 men who have been idle for 'our days returned to work. The settlement was the result of an expressed determination of Governor Crane and those representing the mer chants of Boston to bring all possible pressure to bear upon the New York, New Haven and Hartford railroad com pany to adopt the rules In force upon the Boston and Maine railroad forbid ding freight handlers to unload teams except at their own option and risk. Frightful Railroad Wreck. A broken rail caused a frightful wreck on the Southern Pacific railroad near Maxon station, 25 miles west of Sanderson, at 3 o'clock Friday morning. fifteen people were killed outright and 28 were more or less Injured.

The cars behind plied up agaliist the engine, caught fire and all were conbumed except the sleepers. All tho Injured in the coaches Just behind the express and baggage cars were cremated. The people In the sleepers were saved with the assist ance of the uninjured passengers. General Methuen Captured. It was announced that after a severe loss General Lord Methuen and four guns had been captured by the Boers commanded by General De larey. The news came like a thunder bolt to London. The extra editions of the evening papers giving an account of the disaster were eagerly bought up and bitter remarks were passed on the subject of the government's decla ration that the war In South Africa was over. The news came too late to affect business on the stock exchange, but excited curb dealings quickly fol lowed the closing, in which South At ricans slumped heavily. General Methuen has since been re leased by General Delarey and has arrived at Klerksdorp. Governor Altgeld Burled.

Repeated threats to abduct his three children unless a ransom of $25,000 was left In a certain spot and a warn ing that murder would follow the plac ing of detectives on the case have caused Alexander R. Peacock, former first vice president and general sales agent of the Carnegie company, to re move his little family temporarily from his Lexington avenue home In Httshurg to the Holland House in New York.

Lord K 'c'iener G ves Particu lars of Methuen's Defeat. Rear Screen of Mounted Troops Over whelmed at Dawn Two Guna Left Unprotected, But Continued In Ac tion Till Every Man Waa Killed. Protecting the Wagons. London, March 17. The war office has received the following communi cation from Lord Kitchener at Pre toria: "Lord Methuen has sent me a staff aflicer with a dictated dispatch, from which it appears that certain panic ulars previously given are inaccurate. The rear screen of mounted troopj was rushed and overwhelmed at dawn. There was a gap of a mile between the ox and the mule convoys. The mount ed supports to the rear of the screen with General Methuen, immediately reinforced by all the available mount ed troops and a section of the 3Sth battery, maintained themselves for an hour, during which the convoys were closing up without disorder. "In the meanwhile two hundred In fantry were being disposed by Lord Methuen to resist the Boer attack, which was outflanking the left-of the rear guard. The Boers pressed that attack hard, and the mounted troops attempting to fall back on the Infantry, got completely out of hand, carrying away with them in the rout the bulk of the mounted troops. Two guns of the 38th battery were thus left unpro tected, but continued In action until every man, with the exception of Lieu tenant Nesham, was hit. Lieutenant Nesham was called on to surrender and upon refusing to do so was killed. "Lord Methuen with 200 of the Northumberland Fusiliers and two guns of the Fourth battery, then found himself isolated, but held on for three hours. During this period the remain ing Infantry, namely 100 of the Lau cashires, with some 40 mounted men, mostly Cape police, who had occupied the kraal near the wagons, also con tinued to hold out against the repeat ed attacks of the Boers. 'By this time Lord Methuen was wounded and the casualties were ex ceedingly heavy amongst his men. Their ammunition was mostly expenu ed and the surrender was made at about 9:30 In the morning. "The party In the kraal still held nut and did not give In till two guns and a pompon were brought to bear upon them at about 10 o'clock, making their position untenable. 'It is confirmed that most of the Boers wore khaki uniforms. Many also wore our badges. Even at close quarters they could not be distin guished from our own men. "It is clear the infanrty fought well and the artillery kept up the tradi tions of their regiment. In addition to the 40 members of the Cape police already mentioned, a few parties of imperial yeomanry and Cape police continued to hold their ground after the panic had swept the bulk of the mounted troops oft the field." From other dlpntches it appears that General Methuen was shot while riding to bring up the mounted troops, and that bis horse was killed. After the surrender General Delarey rode up and treated General Methuen with the greatest courtesy and considera tion. He ordered his return to Klerks dorp under the rare of his own nep hew and a medical officer. According to a Klerksdorp corres pondent of the Daily Mail the burghers were so angry at this that a party of them went out and brought General Methuen back. General Delarey, however, overruled the objection of the burghers. Allotment of Seneca Lands. Washington, March 18. A delega tion of three Seneca Indians frrm Western New York called at the White House and Informed the president that their tribe did not desire representa tion on the commission to allot their lands. A bill Is now before congress providing for the allotment and for three commissioners to carry It Into effect, one of whom must be a member of the tribe.

There Is no longer any doubt that within the next few months, at the latest, Pension Commissioner Evans will sever his connection with the pension bureau to accept a position from the president which will be substantial promotion, but which has not yet been definitely selected. It Is well known that Mr. Evans has the entire confidence of the president; the latter will not consider the question of his retirement until position entirely satisfactory to the commissioner has been provided. No decision has yet been reac'ied con corning a successor to Mr. Evans nor will any action be taken until the president is thoroughly convinced that he has found a man of the same high c haracter and sterling worth possessed by the present commissioner In so high a degree.
