She requested a loan on her securities, and the bro- 1 .ker agreed to advance her money. Later it was discovered that a Cana- 1 dian Faciflc certificate for five shares ' had been raised. The proper types 1 and inks had beea used, but the per- < son who had altered the certificate 1 had neglected to change the revenue < stamps, the law calling for a shilling 1 stamp for each ?400. This led to the i detection of the swindle. When the < woman was arrested she said: "I have 1 no defence to make."

Eastwick and a niece of Andrew M. Eastwick, who lives in Philadelphia. Her mother was a member of the famous Miles family, of this city, and from her mother's estate Josephine and her sister Huldah inherited property valued at more than $100,000. Josephine always had a marked influence over Huldah, and when they received their money they became estranged from their father and other members of the family and went to t New Orleans to live. There they lived expensively and entertained magnificently. Thence they went to London, about three years ago. There t 'Josephine put herself under the tutelage of a well-known horsewoman and soon sained fame as a whip. ' She purchased a coach, and she anil v >Huldah toured England and Scotland ? In It. Having finished this tour they ' returned to this country, and for some 1 time lived in New York City. There ? Josephine doalt in the stock market, 1 and lost a great deal of money. The r worry caused by this broke down her health, and it was necessary to place 1 her in a private sanitarium for several S months. When she recovered she and " Huldah -went to Washington, D. C. ? This "was in the winter of 1899-1900, * and dujfng that period they lived very * quietly. Overtures were made to * Josephine by her father during that time and they became reconciled. She * expressed a desire to go to Europe c again, and early last spring she and e Huldah and their father sailed for ^ Liverpool. v Relatives -were given to understand c that Josephine's intention -was to use c the knowledge she had obtained on 5 her coachinc tour to get up and con- I duct similar parties for compensation. This seems to have been successful, t for it is said that she made money. The mania for speculation seized her again, however, and she is said to have had large dealings with New t York brokers by cable. Again she lost, and it is presumed here that her losses again affected her mind. q ? BOER ACCUSED OF HICH TREASON I D The Former Governor of Johannesburg <d '* Arrested In London. London. ?

Manila.?There were appropriate ceremonies in the palace at the Inauguration of Dr. Pardo de Tavera and Benito Legardo as members of the Philippine Commission. Jose Luzuriaga, the third Filipino member, was unable to takfc the oath, owing to illness. Civil Governor Taft said that the ceremony does not fully complete the Government President McKinley in- , tends forming, but sufficient has beeD done to show the nature of the policy to be followed. Municipal Governments have been generally formed, of i n. silDStanuuuy auiuuumuuo tuumtici. Their officers are entirely natives. The Provincial Governments are partly American and partly Filipino. Now the Philippine Commission is partly American and partly Filipino, it being , the purpose of the President to form i i Government in which the native ele- , ment will be able to voice the desires i )f the people, their local aspirations i ind necessities, and give the Filipinos t in example of American institutions i ind the customs and laws prevailing < n the United States.

Dr. de Travera said that hardly had he people begun to appreciate the vork of pacification than the instituions of peace were accorded them. The enemy of the evening before be?an the next morning to aid their idversarles in building roads and louses and introducing acts of peace. The day was not far distant when the Filipinos would enter a legislative )ody for the islands, elected by the i jeople. Conditions prevent the elec- ' ions at present. The Filipinos conlider to-day to be solemn and grand, )ecause It is the first time part in the tupreme government has been given hem. They believe that the day is :oming when the American .Constituion, as a whole, without amputations, vould be planted here, as the flag is. The other Commissioners also took he oath of office.

Nevertheless, inspired by the sentij iMltiDL -m A STREET IN CARACAS, nients which are common to all thf Governments of the American Repub lies, the United States would sincere ly deplore, said Secretary Hay, a breach of the amicable relations thai it this time happily exist between thf sister nations of the Western World ind would, especially regret any action Dy cither of them which might menace the security of transit across the Isthmus or the neutrality of its terri lory, and thereby constrain the Govjrnmeut of the United States to consider its responsibilities and functions under existing treaty engagements tvitli Colombia.

Locomotive Wu Found Deserted Near Dense Woods, Into Which the J Bandits Had Escaped. Fort Worth, Texas.?The Cotton z Belt passenger tralu south-bound, due 8 to leave Texarkana at $.25* o'clock p. in., was delayed In Its departure and r did not get out until 11 o'clock. It reached the Texas and Pacific cross Ing, four miles south of Texarkana, about 11.25 p. m. As it stopped, six > men boarded the train. Two of these '?- i J I i got on tne locomotive uuu c-uiupeueu i the engineer and fireman to go back and cut the mail and express cnra from the train. When this had been done, the six men boarded the loco. motive, left the fireman with the train, and the engineer was instructed to pull out south. The train was run to Eylau, a small siding, where a stop was made. While one man guarded the locomo> tive, the others went back to the exi press car, forced the Joors, and blew ; open the safe. They took their time [ at the work, and when they had conr eluded, returned to the locomotive with two sacks heavy with booty. These they tossed on the locomotive. - Turning to the engineer, one of them l said: "We will Just shell road you here., You are not the only engineer in this crowd, and I guess we can run the ' CAPITAL OF VENEZUELA^1' ! machine a few miles without your as si8tance." Putting1 out the headlight, the bandit engineer opened the throttle and t pulled out.

Engineer Henderson took possession, backed to the express and mail cars and coupled up. ' In the meantime Conductor Armstrong and several passengers had i walked back to Texarlcana and .given the alarm. Without delay the Sheriff organized a posse and started in pursuit and the conductor returned to his train. The passengers were not molested. The robbers secured, it is said, between $10,000 and $25,000. The exact amount is withheld by the railroad and express people, but It is known that a very large shipment was made on this train. The work was done by men more experienced in railroading than in robbery. They knew the stops of the train and were prepared for the fimorrronr*v thua riroaantfiH Tlintr were armed, but did not make unnecessary display of their weapons.All were masked and each wore a coat The country where the holdup occurred is densely wooded, so that the robbers had an opportunity to double on their tracks through the timber and hide their route.

BOWSAPPEASEOTHE KAISEB" Prince Chun Apologizes For the Mur^ der of Baron von Ketteler. EMPEROR KWANG-SU'S LETTER rhe Baler of Chin* Animated by "Feelings of Penitence and Shame" For the Recent Events In His Empire ? German Emperor Cordial to the Chinese Prince After the Apology Is Hade. Potsdam, Germany?The Kaiser received Prince Chun, who is the head of the Chinese expiatory mission for the murder of Baron von Ketteler, the German Minister to Pekln. Emperor William received Prince Chun in the thrnno room. The Kaiser remained seated throughout the interview. When the Chinese Prince approached the Emperor he bowed low oncesome witnesses said nine times. He ultimately bowed himself out backward. Prince Chun said that the Emperor of China had sent the expiatory mission to Germany no less of his own will than as a compliment to the Powers. The Prince added that the Chinese Emperor stood entirely aloof from the Boxer disturbances in China, but in accordance with Chinese practices he accepted the responsibility. He then read the following message from his brother, the Emperor of China, written on yellow silk: , "Greeting: Ever since the empires have been mutually represented by permanent legations we have stood in uninterrupted friendly relationship with one another. Unfortunately, in the fifth month of last year Boxers rebelliously penetrated Pekin and the soldiers joined them. The result was the murder of your Majesty's Minister. Baron von Ivetteler. a man who, so long as he occupied his post at Pekin, paid careful attention to the interests of our countries and to whom we were bound to pay our special acknowledgements. "We regret most deeply that Baron von Ketteler met so terrible an end among us. The fact that we were not in a position to take due protective measures was painful to our feeling of responsibility. It was our feeling of responsibility that prompted us to erect a monument on the spot as a sien that the crime would not remain unexplated. Further, we have sent to Germany with this letter Prince Chun Tsni Fong, at the head of a special mission. Frlnce Chun, who Is our own brother, will assure your Majesty how deeply the eventsof the past year have grieved us, and how deeply the feeling of penitence and shame still animates us. "Your Majesty sent your troops from far distant to put down the Boxer rebellion and restore peace for the welfare of our nation. We have therefore commanded Prince Chun to express personally to your Majesty our thanks for your efforts in promoting peace. We cherish the hope that your Majesty's indignation lias given place to the old feelings of friendship. That the relations of our empires may be even more extensive, intimate, and of a beneficial character than hitherto is our firm assurance." Emperor William, in responding, emphasized with clear enunciation the most striking passages of his reply."No Joyous or festive occasion nor the fulfilment of a simple act of courtesy." he began impressively, "brought your Imperial Highness to me. but a deeply melancholy and serious event" After referring to Baron von Ketteler's murder, he continued: "I really believe that your hlghnesa's imnprlnl brother personally stood aloof from the crime and the subsequent acts of violence against tbe inviolable legations and peaceful foreigners. All the greater is the guilt which falls upon his advisers and his Government. These must not delude themselves into believing that by an expiatory mission alone they have made atonement and obtained pardon for their guilt. This can only be done by their future attitude in conformity with the prescriptions of international law and the usages of civilized nations. "If the Emperor of China conducts the government of his great empire henceforth strictly in the spirit of these prescriptions then his hope will be fulfilled that the sad results of the complications of the past year will be overcome, and that .between Germany and China, as formerly, lasting peaceful and friendly relations will again prevail and conduce to the benefit of the two nations and the whole human civilization. In the sincere and earnest wish that this may be so I bid your Imperial Highness welcome."' The withholding of military and other honors from Prince Chun upon his arrival at the palace was intended to convey the idea that his errand was one of atonement, and the same reason dictated fhe maintenance of a stern and frlcrld demeanor by Em peror William until the expiatory address was read and his Majesty had replied. Honors were then accorded the Chinese representative. A guard of honor formed upon the terrace fronting the palace and as the Chinese Prince left the palace they presented arms and the band played. . German Warship Sunk. The German cruiser Wacht was sunk In a collision with the battleship Sachsen In the Baltic. No lives were lost. Big Plow Trust Assured.
