IN TURMOIL SERIOUS TROUBLE LIKELY TO OCCUR. ARMY WITH THE PEOPLE Shares Feeling Against Jesuits and Count of Caserta, Former Carlist Leader. Madrid, Feb. 12-Whispered rum ors, which are not supported by tangible facts, say that Madrid is on the verge of a tumult. The govern -,ent, however, is calmly proceeding to carry out the details for the wed ding of the princess of the Austrias to Prince Charles of Bourbon, but the street coiners, the clubs and the hotel corridors teem with disturbing stories. The new shout, "Long live the army, " is the most serious sign. Should it take a real hold on the ;people and should the fever reach the army itself the outcome would be threatening. The current talk represents the army as being dissatisfied and that it does" not intend -to take up arms against the ppople so long as their position is directed against the Jesuits and Count of Caserta. The feeling against the former is largely political, but a real and deep seated antagonism exists against the former Carlist leader. The decision of the high court to day favoring the contention of the another in the Ubao case, giving the daughter into her charge and releasing her from the convent, is likely to have a soothing effect. Another step in the marriage cere mony occurs at the palace tonight at 9 o'clock when the formal contract will be signed. The duke of Soto mayer, the grand chamberlain, has ex tended an invitation to the ministry to be among the witnesses. Besides the royal party, the ministry and the palace officials and the witnesses, no others will be present. All the parties to the wedding are domiciled in the royal palace. They, therefore, are not obliged to expose themselves to the public, the wed ding occurring within the chapel of the palace itself at 11 o'clock Thurs day morning. Up to the present the city is per feotly calm. This afternoon about 800 students led by a woman and bearing French and Spanish flags assembled in the Puerta del Sol and started cries for the army and against the Jesuits and the count of Caserta. They were quickly dispersed, but continued reassembling in-various parts of the city. This afternoon was one of continual manifestations, though without serious incident, owing to the vigilance of the police. In fact, throughout the entire day civil guards, mounted and on foot, were everywhere visible, dispersing crowds wherever found. These as semblages were largely composed of youths and street idlers, but behind them were agitators and the sentiment of the people. This evening 200 mounted civil guards are parading Puerta del Sol with drawn swords, preventing any collection of people. All avenues centering on the square are closely guarded. There can be no doubt that the feel ing of the populace is deep rooted, needing only a successful leader to en oonrage the people to menacing deeds. Owing to their attitude the torchlight procession scheduled for this evening was abandoned, the authorities fearing that the slightest opportunity for a clash might lead to serious results. The night illumination might cause a hail of stones, which might excite the guards to some act of revenge. The populace is being given looser rein than in ordinary circumstances because of the desire of the queen re gent to avoid any meeting between the people and the authorities which could lead to bloodshed on the day of the wedding. Hitherto there has been no serious attempts on the part of the crowd to resist the police. On the contrary, the people scatter the moment the police start in their directiion. Some curious sights ensune in such cases. For in stance, shopkeepers and proprietors of restaurants an4 cafes, the moment the demonstrators appear, pull down their iron shutters. By the time the police have arrived the crowd vanishes. Then up go the shutters again and bnsiness is resumed. CASE AAINSTI NEELY Cuban Government Rapidly Accum ulating Testimony for Use at Coming Trial. Havana, Feb. 12-ThA testimony submitted on the side of the govern. ment in the case of C. F. Neely, the alleged defaulting postal clerk, covers 2,000 typewritten pages. This covern only a portion of the whole evidence to be presented and witnesses are be ing examiried daily. Architects' are drawing up plans of the postoffice vaults, fire room and electric plant, which are expected to have .an iflportant bearing on the stamp burning incident.

Neely will be given opportunity to combat the charges and to file testimony. The case will then go to the audiencia for public trial, where the decision will be final so far as the facts of the case are concerned. An appeal may be taken to the supreme court on the question of sentence. The fiscal, who is preparing the testimony, says that the examination of witnesses and translating of their testimony will take considerable time and that he is unable to predict when the work will be completed.

Indianapolis, Feb. 12-A special to the Sentinel from Hartford City, Ind., says: Excitement among the oil speculat ors continues here. Everybody is oil mad. Never in the history of the In diana oil field has there been such ex citement as today. Already prices of everything in the little village of Dundee, nine miles northwest of this city, have advanced to a stage that startles prospectors. Yesterday it was only a speck on the map, today it is the center of the most wonderful oil field in the United States. Indeed, it is the opinion of the oil men that it will prove the most valuable in the world's history of oil operations. The Dundee well, owned by the Standard Oil company, which has wrought all this unexpected chnage, came in yesterday at a depth of over 1,000 feet. It was unexpected, and like a shot from a 10-inch gun blew away the oil saver and casing head and sent a solid stream of foamy, yel low oil six and a half inches in diam eter over the 72 foot derrick. The road scenes out of Hartford City were reminders of an army wagon train, except for the varied character of the vehicles. Last night and all day today there has been seemingly a never-ending line of wagons, buggies, sleighs, and buckboards. Speculators, sightseers, leasers, pips line men, ac countants, civil engineers, field fore men and others interested jog along. The remarkable gusher on the little acre farm of Joseph Bird still spurts thousands of barrels of oil daily. This county has witnessed many ex citing oil times, but the rush that has followed the news of the rich find yes terday is unprecedented. Dams have been built and the oil is now being. saved and it is-pumped into pipes from the dams as fast as they can be laid. CRACIOUS OF HIS MAJESTY KWANG SU'S. KINDNESS TO CONDEMNED BOXERS. GRANTS RARE PRIVILEGE May Commit Suicide in Any Man ner They Choose-Pos sible Recalcitrant. Pekin, Feb. 12-Prince Ching and Li Hung Chang have received a long lispatch from the court, which they have not disclosed to the foreign en voys. It is alleged to contain in addi tion to the recent celebrated reform decree an account of how Emperor Ewang Su has sent a choice of the method of suicide to all those named for punishment by the envoys, closing with the inquiry whether Prince Thing and Li Hung Chang think the envoys will be satisfied. It is understood the Chinese pleni potentiaries in their reply to the court Laid the foreign envoys could not object strongly to the accomplished fact. but that they would probably insist upon the sentence of execution being published throughout the epmire and )ossibly upon the heads of those con lemned being exhibited at various oints. It is very seriously doubted in Chi iese circles here that General Tung "u Hsiang will agree to commit sui 'ide. The army will support him. Ele has absolute control of the Mo iamedans and is believed to be one iimself. He refused to allow the dis anding of 5,000 men and the emperor )rdered him far from the court. To ittempt his execution, it is thought n Chinese circles, might mean civil war. MANY ARE COMING Large Number of Prospective Settlers Leave Chicago for the West. Chicago, Feb. 12-Between 1,500 and 1,800 land hunters left Chicago today for open sections of the far west. Some had tickets to points in the northwest, many to points in the mid die west and others to points in the southwest, and they all took advant age of the first of the long series of weekly reduced rate applications re cently authorized as a result of James J. Hill's determination to boom the country tributary to the Great North ern line as it never before has been boomed. It is estimated that at least two thirds of the prospective settlers came from the crowded parts of the east, the other third being composed of per sons from Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin and adjacent states. A hundred or more were Chicagoans. Low rates of $30 to Portland, Seat tile, Vancouver, Tacoma, San Fran cisco, Los Angelles, San Diego, Santa Fe and points in parts of Idaho and Nevada, and $25 to points in Colo rado and eastern parts of Wyoming and Montana, were granted by all in dividual lines. The business to the far northwest was carried out of St. Paul today largely by the Great Northern, Northern Pacific and Canadian Pacific lines The Santa Fe is handling much of the California and southwest busi ness. It is said that James J. Hill con fdently expects to carry at least 50, 000 persons from the east and central west to settle in the far west. A SICKENING TALE Infant Found Drowning in the Blood of Its Murdered Mother. Milwaukee, Feb. 12-Charles Voss killed his wife with a butcher knife this morning, following up the deed by suicide. Cause unknown. A later report reveals a most heart. rending incident in connection with the murder. Instead of bathing the infant at the time of the butchery, it develops that the little one was nurs ing at its mother's breast. The sight that was revealed to neighbors was enough to unnerve the strongest. On the floor beneath the hearth of the kitchen stove lay the body of the dead woman. A slowly widening pool of blood oozed from beneath her. There was a stir and a gasping cry, and one woman, whose nerves were stronger than the others, hastened across the floor and .raised the bleed ing form, barely in time to save the life of the 10 weeks' old babe that was choking, literally drowning in its mother's blood.

PREFER LEAVENWORTH WAY. Topeka, Kans., Feb. 12-The capital punishment bill, which was introduced by Senator Smith of Edwards county, was defeated in the senate today by a vote of 18 to 11. Sentiment in favor of restoring capital punishment in Kansas was aroused by the recent burning of the negro Alexander at Leavenworth, and that the bill should be defeated by such a decisive vote oc casions some surprise. TURF MEN WARRING Recently Organized Western Jock ey Club Has Fight on Hand. Cincinnati. Feb. 12-A declaration of war was made here today by the ownerh of six tracks against the new Western Jockey club. The six members of the Western Jockey club who were not allotted dates when the new jockey club was recently organized in Chicago, held a meeting here today and reorganized the old American Turf congress, per fecting their plans for the circuit dur ing the coming season and allotting the dates. The contest now will be for recognition by the Eastern Jocky club. The reorganized American Turf congress feels confident that Belmont and others in New York will recognize them as against the Western Jockey club. As there are eight members in the latter, as compared with six members in the former, there was some ques tion as to the power of the minority, but legal advisers held the action of the eight members in Chicago to be illegal and the proceedings here today to be in accordance with law. All of the jockey clubs participat ing today in the reorganization of the American Turf congress were repre sented in person by officefs who sign ed the resolutions that had been pre pared by counsels. ARE ALSO BETTER American Soldiers Cost More Than Those of European Nations. Washington, Feb. 12-The house today passed the .army appropriation bill and entered upon the considera tion of the sundry civil bill, the last but one of the big money bills., The debate.on the army bill was confined largely to a discussion of the question of the passage of the bill to remove the charge of deser tion against soldiers and was made notable by a statement by McClellan of New York comparing the cost of the soldier in European armies with the cost in the United States. Ac cording to his figures, includin the cost of pensions, etc., each United States soldier involved an expense of $2, 828, while a German -soldier costs $227 and a French soldier $28329. Previous to consideration of the ap propriation billk the letter reflecting upon Perry S. Heath, which Sulzer in troduced into the proceedings yester day, was expunged from the record. During the debate upon the motion to expunge Sulzer renewed his attack upon Heath, reiterating his statement of yesterday, that he was willing to father the statements in the letter, and declaring that if action was brought against him he would not plead his constitutional immunity. GLASS WORKS BURN. Pittsburg, Feb. 12-Nearly the en tire plant of the Rochester Tumbler Works of the National Glass com pany, the largest and finest in the world, located at Rochester, Pa., burned early this morning.

Washington, Feb. 12-During the entire session of the senate today the agricultural appropriation bill was under consideration.

"I have always used Foley's Honey and Tar cough medicine, and think it the best in the world,'" says Chas. Bender, a newsdealer of Erie, Pa. Nothing else as good. Holmes & Calhoun. NU lUIIINU FRIDAY NICHT LEGAL PROCEEDINGS CAUSE POSTPONEMENT. WAITING FOR HOLLISTER Future Action of Promotors and Managers Depends Upon Court's Decision. Cincinnati, O., Feb. 13-There is every indication that the proposed boxinig contest will not take place at Saengerfest ball next Friday night. Sporting editors from all over the country arrived today and besi"ged the office and quarters of Managers Brady and Madden, Cook and others, who told them that they could not advise them as to anything until tomorrow afternoon. As soon'as Judge Hollister renders his decision tomorrow at noon, these managers will have a con ference with the directors of the Saen gerfest Athletic association and decide upon theii plans. They promise to make a statement for publication as soon as possible, tomorrow afternoon. The question today with the sports and sporting editors a and all others has been as to the time of the postpone ment. It is conceded if Judge Hollis ter grants the application for a per manent injunction, that the postpone ment will be for some weeks, so as to give time to carry the case through the circuit court and thence to the su preme court for final settlement. If Judge Hollister refuses the injunction the postponement is not likely to be for more than one week and it may be only to the first of nest week. There may be a third course which the court might take, and that is what is known as a modified injunction, which would be a restraining order against holding prizefights at Saenger fest hall, but not against a boxing contest such as that which is named in the permit of Mayor Fleischmann. In this event radical action is expect ed from the governor, as the promot ers would then, no doubt, order a postponement for a few days only, the same as if an injunction is denied and continue under the permit of the mayor, and under the advice of coun sel, holding that they were proceeding without any intention of a violation of the law, and that it would be up to the mayor to see that the event did not violate his permit or law. It is learned on good authority to night that the decision of Judge Hol lister, on which he has been working since Monday, will be elaborate and Lengthy. While there are reports about Gover nor Nash having three or four regi ments under marching orders, it is not believed here that any troops. will reach the city this week at least. STAFF REPORTS FOR DUTY Regiments Selected Will Go into Camp at Cincinnati-Lack of Quarters. Columbus, Ohio, Feb. 12-It is un derstood that General McMakin has been ordered by Governor Nash to report here with Colonel Molton Monk and other members of his staff for service. This makes it look as though General McMakin will be in command of the troops when, called into service to stop the Cincinnati fight. Col. Geo. D. Freeman was at the office of the adjutant general this morning, giving information as to the equipment of regiments with shelter tents. There might be some trouble in finding quarters in build ings for troops in Cincinnati. Word has been passed out to the officers of the troops that are to be used in the expedition 'and they are keeping in touch with their men and with the situation. RICH COPPER STRIKE. Old Prospector's Great Find Near Bozeman. Word was received in the metropolis of Gallatin county a few days ago of a rich copper strike in the Springhill district, 15 miles from Bozeman. W. H. Cruse, a miner who has worked long and hard for a fortune, while driving a tunnel in his mine Friday night, run into a well defined rich vein of copper. From the reports which reached that city there is very little reason to doubt that Cruse has made the gicatest dis covery of copper ever made in that section of the country. Some men state that it is the greatest strike ever made in Montana and that it will not be long before Springhill rivals Butte as a mineral producer. FREQUENT COUGHING intiames the lungs. Foley's Honey and Tar stops the coughing and heals the lungs.
