Installed Secretary of War as Successor
to Elihu Root.
N>w Head of War Department Sworn
and Presented to the General Staff?
Extraordinary Military Honors Shown
Retirlna: Socretary ? Done at Preal
dent's Direction.
Washington, D. C.?William H. Taft
took the oath of office as Secretary of
War. and at once assumed his new
duties. The ceremony took place in
the large :eception room attached to
the Secretary's office in the War Department,
and the transfer of authority
from Elihu Root, the retiring Secretary,
to Mr. Taft, while simple, was
more impressive than any similar affair
in many years. Before the tappointed
hour, Mr. Taft went to the
department from his hotel with a little
parry; 01 persuum uieuu^ an?
members of his family. These included
Charles P. Taft and Miss Wilby. of
Cincinnati, and H. \V. Taft, of New
i'ork; L. R. Wilfley, Attorney General
for the Philippines, and J. D. Sehraidlapp,
of Cincinnati, a personal friend.
They went to Secretary Root's office,
where the retiring Secretary, in a few
well chosen words and with a good
deal of feeling, surrendered his portfolio
to Mr. Taft. The party then proceeded
to the reception room, where
General Chaffee, Chief of Staff, in full
uniform, took charge. The room was
cleared of all except those who took
part in the ceremony, the party of Mr.
raft's friends, and the members of the
General Staff. Mr. Taft and Secretary
Root took their places at the long
table, where John Randolph, a notary,
administered the oath of office to the
incoming Secretary. Then congratulations
were showered on Secretary Taft
and farewells were said to former Secretary
Root. Every army officer on
duty in Washington was aligned at the
ioorway, and the brilliantly uniformed
column passed before the retiring and
incoming secretaries. Secretary Taft
was in the best of spirits, and he had a
smile and good word for every one.
while Mr. Root showed the relief he
felt in laying down the cares of his
sjreat office. After the military men
had passed through the room the heads
r?f bureaus and most of the employes
of the department were admitted, and
each of them received a pleasant greeting.
After the reception Secretary
Taft, with his personal friends and
family, went to luncheon.
President Roosevelt walked from the
White House to the home of Mr. Root,
[n Jackson Square, to say goodby personally
to the retiring Secretary and
Mrs. Root. As the President came up
Executive avenue Troop F. of the Fifteenth
Cavalry, was lined up in front
)f Mr. Root's house, ready to escort
him to the station. The President
ivent at once to the former Secretary's
study, where he was soon followed by
General Chaffee and his assistants,
Major Generals Gillespie and Bliss.'
Secretary Taft came a few minutes
later. After ten minutes spent in con
pcrsauou uie pai icn mc uvuou*
The extraordinary military honors
shown the retiring Secretary were
done at the direction of the President.

Secretary was inducted into the duties

Expenditures Exceeded the Receipts
by $G,783,183.
Washington, D. C.?There was a
large deficit in the United States Treas
ury for the month of January, although
there is still a small surplus for the
fiscal year which began on July 1,
1903. The expenditures of the Government
exceeded the receipts in January,
by $0,783,183. There has been no January
deficit in the Treasury since the
early part of the last decade. The
disbursements were larger in every
principal department .of the Government
last month than they were in the
same month of last yeaV, and there
was a decrease in receipts amounting
to more than $4,000,000.
The receipts from all sources were
S41.583.370. as against $45,996,337 in
January. 1903, and the aggregate expenditures
were $48,372,553, as against
$42,032,243. The largest increase in
expenditures, as compared with January.
1903, was for civil and miscellaneous
purposes, the increase being
nearly 53,000,000.

Greatest Distress Amon? Actors in
thr. History of the Country.
The IroqnoU Theatre Fire Has Caused a
Lr>s? of Millionft to the Theatrical
Chicago II!.?Nearly 6000 stage folic
are stranded In Chicago, it is estimated
by agents. With the number being increased
daily through the closing of
theatres and attractions in neighboring
cities and States, Chicago, because of
the Iroquois fire and its results, is now
the centre of the greatest distress that
has overtaken the amusement business
in its history in this country.
Showing a sereuity puzzling to the
public and even to those in close touch
with the theatrical profession, managers,
agents, actors, actresses, chorus
girls, stage mechanics, bill posters and
numbers of other crafts identified with
Hia mimir world are awaitinsr want.
Idle groups stahd""about in hotels and
besiege the agencies. Hunger shows
in the faces of sbme. They spurn offers
of engagements at "panic salaries."
They murmur unpleasant criticism
about some of the alleged "benefits
planned iu the name of the profession.
"It is .1 case of the survival of the
fittest, and probably the starvation
of the rest." said one old-time manager.
Millions in amusement investments
have been and are being swept
away. The collapse following thn Iroquois
Theatre disaster is not local in
scope. There are the same discouragements
in varying degrees throughout
the country, and the stranded employes
of attractions driven on the
rocks are seeking refuge in New York
and Chicago.
As the ereater number of companies
are disbanding throughout the Middle
West, Chicago is feeling the results
worse. Of the four big producing concernS
in Chicago in the field of melodrama
two have closed all their attractions
and the others have called iD
most of their shows.
General Jimenez Gets Supply of Am
munition *rom ine unerotee.
St. Thoma3, D. W. I.?Advices have
been received here to the effect that
General Jimenez was at Monte Cristl
on January 29 and preparing to resume
the contest, having received a large
supply of ammunition by the steamer
Cherokee from New York. A gunboat
appeared in the offing of Monte Cristi
0.1 January 18 and was supposed to be
waiting to intercept the Cherokee.
The gunboat sent a boat in toward the
shore, but the insurgents prevented it
from landing by artillery fire. To this
the gunboat responded by bombarding
Monte Cristi on the following day, but
she did slight damage, and finally
steamed away before the Cherokee
arrived and landed her ammunition.
There has been hard fighting around
Monte Cristi and Santiago de los Ca
balleros. Hundreds o? men nave Deeu
killed and business is paralyzed.
But It is Said That the Franklin Bank
of Cincinnati Will Not Lose a Cent.
Cincinnati, Ohio.?The report of the
experts who have completed their examination
of the books of the Franklin
Bank, of this city, shows the former
cashier, Henry Burkhold, to have been
$241,000 short in his accounts.
Burkhold was superseded as cashier
several months ago, and has been so
prostrated by his financial collapse that
ho is Dot expected to recover. .ionn j.
Kilgour, President of the Franklin
Bank, says there will be no prosecution,
and that the bank and the creditors
will not lose a cent.
Burkhold has given Mr. Kjlgour power
of attorney to sell securities and settle
up his affairs, and out of the $2,000,000
of Burkhold's holdings it is
thought about $30,000 will be left for
his estate.

St. Petersburg, Russia.?The report
that the St. Petersburg reserves have
been warned to hold themselves in
readiness is quite untrue. Even the
large contingent of the guard regiments
here and at Tsarskoe Selo has
not been notified to prepare for active
service, which would be the case if the
supposed large number of troops in the
Eastern provinces had proved insufficient.
Equally false is the pretended knowl-.,
edge of the reply of Russia, which is
construed as giving way to Japan's demands.
Such reports are laughed at in
the Foreign Office. On the contrary,
it will be found that in the very friendly,
almost paternally, worded reply
which this country is about to make,
and which it is sincerely hoped will
pave the way to further negotiations,
Japan will be reminded that Russia
also has a minimum, and that she cannot
give any binding promises to Japan,
which country must be satisfied
with a sphere of influence in Southern
Korea, leaving the north as the sphere
of influence of Russia.
Russia further urges the Japanese
Government to withdraw all impossible
All knowledge of the alleged mediation
proposed by Prince Ching at Pekin
is denied here, and a specific denial is
given to the assertion that the Russian
Minister there invited Prince Ohing to
take such action. The report that 1000
Rijssian troops are to occupy Antung
is also contradicted, it being Intimated

the United States the report might
have been put out to arouse a renewal

It has been ascertained that there
was practically no division-in sentiment
among the Emperor's advisers at
the recent meeting. In this connection
it is pointed out that much of the criticism
abroad with regard to the delays
incident to the formulation of the present,
as well as the former Russian communications,
is largely attributable to
ignorance of the complicated machinery
and deliberate methods of the Russian
Tokio, Japan.?The Government does
not, it is said, possess any Russian information
concerning the character of
the forthcoming note, although it has
received various reports, the majority
of which say the reply will be satisfactory.
None, however, emanate from
a source which warrants their full acceptance
as cori^ct.
In the judgment of many the character
of the i?ote does not warrant the
belief that Count Lamsdorff, the Russian
Foreign Minister, has given out
the slightest intimation of its contents.
Even that carries little assurance, for
the Russian and Japanese conceptions
of what constitutes a fair bargain vary
The presumption that Russia has
made concessions does not in the least
.warrant the conclusion that there will
be a peaceable settlement of the existing
difficulties. Her entire proposition
will be carefully scrutinized, and every
con tinge-:cy of the situation closely
weighed. If the reply should prove to
be completely unsatisfactory to Japan
the outcome of the conference is manifest.
Should it give partial satisfaction
an exchange of notes is possible,
although there, remains slight room for
additional diplomacy.
Director and Cashier Charged With
Embezzling $50,000 at Henrietta.
Fort Worth, Texas.?E. B. Carver,
one of the leading bankers and stock
men in Texas, a director in the Farmers'
National Bank at Henrietta, and
Cashier Henry B. Patterson/ of the
same institution, were placed under
arrest by Deputy United States Marshal
Dryden. They were taken before
United States Commissioner Dodge.
Carver furnished bonds for $4000 and
Patteraon for $750.
The charge of embezzling $50,000 of
the bank's funds was preferred by National

being filed by United States

London, England.?Mrs. Florence
Maybrick, tlie American woman who 1
was serving a life sentence for having
poisoned lior husband, was released
from the Aylesbury Female Convict
Prison at 6.45 o'clock on the morning
of January 25, on special license.
Her mother, the paper says, had vis- ,

evidently was the bearer of important 1
news, xne uovernor ot xue prison
on Sunday conferred with the prison t
officials with a view to arranging for j
the departure of the prisoner, which
was carried out very quietly.
Mrs. Maybrick, accompanied by one i
of the-prlson matrons, entered a closed' <
carriage and drove to Aylesbury Station,
where she took a train'for .Lon- j

and from there went to a private home 1

in order to recuperate-and to await j
the completion of .certain formalities ?
which will give her a freedom of move- j

Mrs. Maybrick, the paper concludcs, <
during the last few months in prison, j
was employed in the lightest work as a 1
reward for good conduct. ^

sentence to imprisonment for life, and j
finally, has been released after serving s

The comparative suddenness, of Mr.
Whitney's. d,eath was a. great sTiock
:o his friends, many of whom hastened
to make inquiries as to his condition1
vhen the news of his illness was
irst made public. It is now under'
stood that his condition was so grave.,
hat among those familiar with. the\
?ase no hope was entertained for hi#
'ecovery. , .. .
The operation, to perform which Dra.
Bull and Walker were- hastily... summoned,
Dr, Bull being (tailed in .-from
>ut of town, disclosed the fact that the '
ilsease had attacked Mr. Whitney in a.
particularly virulent form. When the
lppendix was laiji bare, it is under*
stood, it was found to be in a highly
n flamed condition, and pus was flowing
freely from the sat.
The sick man was nearly sixty-three
rears old, and although an excellent
L'onstitution helped him to rally slightly
lfter the operation his age militated'
lgainst him, and great physical depression
rendered him still less able to
withstand the progress of tbe disease.
The case was complicated by peritonitis,
which set in after the, opera*
tion. aijd was fully developed two days.
Inter, although according to reports
sent out he had passed a favorable''
night with less fever and inflammation,
those who knew had faint hopes of hip
recovery, and these quickly dlsap

Two honrs before death the condition
t)f Mr. Whitney seemed to show improvement
over that of the precedingilay.
Dr. Walter B. .Tames, the family
physician, who had remained beside
the patient throughout the night, and
Diorning, felt hopeful for the first time
since the o^ration was performed.
It seemed then as if science had,

Payne Whitney, the younget son. and
Adelaide Randolph, the step-dafghter,
who were hurrying homeward on special
