SL John' School Burned Governor Will Visit Charleston. Major Littleton W. T. Waller of the Marine corps, who la being tried by court martial at Manila, P. I., on the charge of executing Samar natives without trial, addressed the crowded court The major said he was either rlKbt or wrong In his actions and ad ded that he desired to cite Ave prece dents which came under the head it his own case. He alluded to the naval battle at Santiago and the humanity he had shown to the Spaniards who were captured and said he had many letters from Spaniards thanking him for the kindness he had shown them. Continuing the major said that in 18:12 he was with the British forces In EKypt, where Arabs captured pickets of Bengal cavalry, decapitated the pris oners and placed their heads on poles. AtUrwards all the Arabs who were caught wore shot without trial. Dur ing tho campaign In China the Chinese mutilated the dead and tortured the wuutided to death. Consequently, when a Boxer or a fanatic was cap tured h:t was executed immediately, without reference. ' It Is Impossible to conceive such treachery as that of the natives of Suniar," said the major. "They revel in blood and have an appetite for wan ton sacrilege of the human body. These fiends stole Captain Connell's class ring, filled tho soldiers' bodies with wood and stones and attempted to murder my command. I shot them. I honestly thought then that I was right and I believe so now. Neither my peo ple nor the world will believe me to be a murderer." Captain Arthur T. Marlx (Marine corps), representing Major Waller. In a forceful argument, maintained that Waller' actions were Justified by mar tlil law, quoting numerous authori ties on the subject. Captain Marlx also said he regretted very much that the prosecution had seen fit to call Oeneral Smith. He claimed that all the testimony went to show that the major was Justified. Major Waller has been acquitted. The court stood 11 to 2 for acquittal. Burial of Cecil Rhode. Amid a tremendous throng of sol diers, civilians and natives, the body of Cecil Rhodes was committed to its rock tomb In the Matoppo hills. The coffin was shrouded in a union Jack and the wreath sent by Queen Alex andra was laid upon it as it was low ered into the grave. The funeral party started from Ful ler's hotel early in the morning. The procession was five miles long as it wound through the hills and gorges. Every sort of conveyance was made use of; some were on foot, others were on horseback or on bicycles, while still others were In wagons and carriages. When the procession was a mile from the grave everybody dismounted and concluded the Journey on foot. Twelve oxen hauled the coffin to the almost inaccessible summit of the Kopje where the chiefs Shombli, Faku and Umgula and two thousands natives had assembled to witness the Christ ian burial rites, which they afterwards supplemented in their own fashion by the sacrifice of 15 oxen to the shade of the great dead chief. Thousands of white persons congre gated around the wind swept hill. The grave was encircled by six boulders. The interment waa extremely Im pressive. The "dead march" echoed through the hills and the natives stood like statues. Tears were in the eyes of many of the on-lookers. The Bishop of Mashonaland, who conducted the burial service, said: , "I consecrate thla place forever; here he thought, here he lived and died for the Empire." When the coffin was lowered into the tomb chiselled in the solid rock, all those present sang "Old Hundred" and "Now the Laborer's task Is o'er." The remainder of the funeral service waa chanted and the band played the "dead march In Saul." The tomb was covered with wreaths. McAuliffe's Assailant. Continued efforts to solve mystery hi death of J. McAullffe, chief witness against Wardman Glcnnon, who was convicted and sent to Sing Sing for failure to suppress a disorderly house several months ago, resulted in a sen sation at the West 47th street police station. McAullffe was found dead on a side walk near his home several weeks ago. It developed that he had spent the night In the West 47th street po lice station on a charge of drunken ness and had been discharged in court next morning. Effort to trace his movement from the court room have been continued by various persons, and finally Police Commissioner Partridge took up the matter. Two persons were found who declared they saw a man, answering the description of Mc Aullffe put into a cab at the police station. Others are said to declare they saw the same man thrown from a vehicle near where McAullffe was found dead. The officers attached to the West 47th street police station were paraded before two of these men Aaron Co hen and John Lennon at midnight. Both declared that Detective Sergeant James Klernan was one of tho two men they saw carrying a man from the door of the station house toward a cab standing at the curb. Peculiar Will of Wealthy Negro. By the will of Colonel John McKoe, said to have been the wealthiest negro In the country, who died a few days ago, Arrhhisbcp Ryan of the archdio cese of Philadelphia will come Into the possession as trustee of an estate valued at upward of $2,000,000. He Is survived by one daughter, Ab ble A. 8yphax, who has five children living, and by Harry McKee Mlnton, who is the son of a second daughter. This daughter is dead. The surviving daughter 1 cut ctf with an annuity of 30. Harry Minton is bequeathed an an nuity of $.r0 and after the death of all the annuitants the annuities shall re vert to the residuary estate in the hands of the archbishop. Colonel MrKce specified In his will that his residuary estate shall be used for two purposes. First to build a Catholic church, rectory and convent in McKee City, N. J., and second, to build and maintain a charitable insti tute In Philadelphia for the education of both white and colored male or phans. Aerial Navigation. Alberto Santos-Dumont, builder and navigator of airships, has arrived at New York on the big liner DetitRchlnnd. He has come to the United Slates to discuss plans for an exhibition of aerial navigation with the managers of St. Louis exposition and will be in the country for three weeks. He will do no flying during his visit. "I hope to see New York the prin cipal air pott of the world before I pass away" he said In talking of the future of airshlp3. "I have no doubt but that in my time, perhaps 10 years if I get the proper encouragement and help, aerial navigation will be an ac complished fact. I have no doubt but that I will live to see passengers transported by airship across the At lantic from New York to Paris. "I have not patented my airship In this country and I do not intend to. I want other men to take my Ideas and Improve on them if they can." Santos-Dumont Is a native of Brazil, but holds that he Is an American. Lessened Wheat Exports. Bradstreet'g repott of trade condi tions says: Cereal prices moved within narrow limits early pending the publication or the government report, some Btrength being imparted by reports of better export demand and cold weather in terfering with the growing crop, but this strength disappeared later, and the repoit itself, though claimed to be a surprise, exercised little effect, the net changes for the week being very slight. Hog products strengthened slightly on the small run of hogs and also on increased demands by packers. Business failures for the week num ber 1S2, as against 176 last week, 225 In this week last year, 152 in 1900, 243 In 1S!)9 and 215 in 1808. j.tat, Including flour, exports for the week aggregate 3 842,012 bushels. against 4.44R.917 bushels last week and 6,405,601 bushels In this week last year. Fifty Person Thrown Into River. Fifty persons had narrow escape from drowning when a gangplank leading to a flcat at the foot of West 42d street In New York city broke and a number of people were thrown into the North river. Fortunately sev en or eight launches and rowboats were In the immediate vicinity and assisted in the rescue. There were four or five rowboats under the gang plank and 20 of the men and women tumbled into these, sustaining injuries about the head and body. A crew of life savers is stationed nearby and they quickly got to work. The women were first pulled out of the water and then the men were rescued. Ambulances were summoned and the unconscious persons revived by the surgeons while those hurt had their wounds dressed. St John' School Burned. St John' military school at Man Hug, 10 miles east of Syracuse, N. Y., a wellknown military Institution for boys, founded in 1809 by Right Rev. Fred D. Huntington, bishop of the Protestant Episcopal diocese of Cen tral New York, was destroyed by fire of unknown origin which broke out at 5:30 o'clock Tuesday afternoon, less than two hours after the close of the afternoon school session. The build ing was a 3-story brick structure, and the fire spread from the top story to a gymnasium to the east, and thence to a chapel in the rear.

Celebrated Divine Died at His Home In Washington. Great Literary Worker Reached 30, 000,000 of People Weekly Through the Newspaper Dictated 20,600 Words a Day Church In Brooklyn Burned Down Three Time. Washington, April 14. The Rev. T. DeWitt Talmage, the noted Presbyter Ian divine, died at 9 o'clock Saturday night at his residence In this city. It had been evident for some days that there w as no hope of his recovery and the attending physicians so in formed the family. The patient grad ually grew weaker until life passed away so quietly that even the mem bers of the family, all of whom were watching at the bedside, hardly knew that all was over. The Immedi ate cause of death was inflammation of the brain. DO. TA1.1IAOE AS 1IF. APPEARED IK THE Pt'I.riT. Funeral will lake place at 4 o'clock Tuesday from the Church of the Cove nant aud the services will be very sim ple. There will be no funeral sermon, but Bhort addresses concerning the life and works of Dr. Talmage will be made by men who have been Inti mately associated with him. Dr. Talmage was beyond a doubt tho most popular preacher America has produced. When he had a church, his congregations were as enormous as those of Henry Ward Beecher, and he at the same time addressed another congregation of millions through the newspapers. When he was preaching In Brooklyn, there was no necessity of a stranger asking where Dr. Talmage's church was; all he had to do was to follow the crowd. For many years his sermons were preached both from the pulpit and through tho newspapers, but after he gave up his pulpit In Washington the great divine spoke to bis flock wholly through the public press, and there was hardly a town In the United States where his sermon in the daily cr weekly newspaper was not eagerly awaited by scores of peo ple. It is probably no exaggeration to state that his sermon was read each week by several millions of people. It appeared in at least six languages, and the combined circulations of the news papers printing his sermons were esti mated at 30,000,000. A New Jerseyman by Birth. Dr. Talmage was born in Bound Brook, Somerset county, N. J., Jan. 7, 1832. His home was a small farm and he was the youngest son of a fam ily of 12 children. His parent were deeply religious people, and their greatest desire was to see some of their sons enter the ministry. Their hopes were fulfilled, for the eldest brother at the close of his college life went to China as a missionary, while another became a minister. Dr. Tal mage himself entered law, but his par ents never ceased to hope that he would eventually follow In the foot steps of his brothers. In 1853 he gave up legal practice and went to the col lege at New Brunswick to prepare for the ministry. His first charge was at Belleville, N. J., where he spent three years. He l?ien accepted a call to a church at Syracuse. N. Y., and remained there until 1802, when he accepted a pas torate in Philadelphia. This gave him his first chance of reaching the people of a great city. His success was in stantaneous, and he finally received threesiniultancous calls from Rrooklyn, Chicago and San Francisco. Though the church which had called him to Brooklyn boasted only 17 members, he chose that city, and tho result of his choice is well known. Within a year It was necessary to erect a struct ure capable of holding 3,000 people. Two year later this church was burned to the ground. An edifice that would seat 5,000 was then built, but was inadequate to ac commodate the thousands that flocked to hear tho famous preacher. For 15 years the church had wonderful prosperity which was rudely broken by a second fire that laid it in ashes. Undismayed, a third tabernacle was built. It was completed in 1891, and its dedication was a great public occasion. I top 'ibis laocmacte was a grand ana beautiful place of worship, with a va' t f-uting capacity and perfect acoustic properties, but it was net destined to stand long. Oa Suuday, May 13, 1894, shortly after the close of the morning services, fire broke out and before it was under control had left the mag nificent building a pile of smoking ruins. Dr. Talmage for a time ceased active pastoral work and went abroad for a tour of the world. He preached to large audiences in Australia, New Zealand, India and Great Britain and on his return wrote the story of his travels in a book called "The Earth Girdled," which enjoyed a wide circu lation. He now devoted himself al most exclusively to hi editorial work on The Christian Herald, his sermons being syndicated for weekly publica tion. In 1895 Dr. Talmage accepted for a time a pastoral call from the First Presbyterian church In Wash ington and was scon the most popular mlslster at the national capital. In 1900 he retired from active connection with the Washington church and devoted his time to editorial work, preaching and lecturing. The passing years served to increase his fame, and an announcement that he was going to preach always attracted a large audi ence. Dr. Talmage was a voluminous writ er on religious subjects. He was the author of a number of lectures, and his sermons have been published In thirty volumes. Among the better known of his works were "From Man ger to Throne." "Sparks From My Anvil," "Crumbs Swept Up." "Siioits That Kill." "Night Sides of City Life," "The Poetry of Life," and "Old Wells Dug Out." It is estimated that for many years his royalties netted him the princely income if $20,01)0 a year. WILL AVOID TRUST PRICES. State Eoard Will Buy Live Cattle and Have It Slaughtered. Albany, April 15. The state lunacy commission has decided to purchase beef on its own account In order to avoid paying the price now charged by the wholesale dealers. It has dis patched an agent to Buffalo to pur chase Canadian cattle on the hoof and will have it slaughtered. The commission purchases nearly a quarter of a million dollars worth of beef a year. It Is confident that by buying Its beef on the hoof it will get Just as good meat as It has been re ceiving and will not pay more than It did last year, and will pay a good deal less than the trust prices. Attorney Oeneral Davles has had several talks with Governor Odell re garding the commencement of an ac tion against the beef trust similar to the one instituted against the ice trust. He will not decide on what action he will take until after the governor starts on his Western trip. HARMONY MEETING. Reception of Democratic Club Sena tor Hill Chief Speaker Last Night New York, April 15.

Perry Belmont, who presided at the famous Jefferson dinner at the Metropolitan Opera House In 1899 and whose dif ferences with Mr. Bryan and Croker have kept him away from the club for three years, was also there. The club house was crowded when Lewis Nixon the new leader of Tam many Hall, called the meeting to order and when ho introduced Mr. Hill there was great applause from the guests. Funeral of Mr. Tower and Son. Poughkcepsie, N. Y., April 15.
