THE NATIVES MANILANS GLAD AGUINALDO IS CAPTURED. ADVISE HIS DEPORTATION Mistrust Him and Believe Peace Would Speedier Follow Re moval from Islands. Manila, March 30-In company with Colonel Vellia, his chief of staff, and Dr. Barcelona, ex-treasurer of the SFilipino government, Aguinaldo oc cupies one of the nicest appartments of the Malacanan palace. He is closely guarded and courteously treated. Captain Francis J. Kernan of the Second infantry; Captain F. L. Henry of the First artillery, member of Gen eral MacArthur's staff; Captain Ben jamin H. Randolph and Lieutenant Gilbert A. Youngbird of the Third artillery, with five guards are watch ing him. Aguinaldo nervously paces the floor and deeply thinking, thrusts his hands through his hair. He smokes many cigars and cigarettes and has a hearty appetite. He speaks only a few words of English. He is conscious of his dignity; but tries to talk pleasantly with his guards. He often praises the skill and audacity of General Funston in effecting his capture, say ing that only by strategy could he have been captured. It is said that Aguinaldo is very strongly adverse to receding from his former attitude, but insists that he must regard the best interests of the Filipino people. Sisters of Dr. Barce lona have called upon him with a plen tiful supply of wine. He is well sup plied with wine and is well. supplied with clothing. He is careful of his personal appearance. He celebrated his 32nd birthday the day before he was captured. The birthday festivi ties were prolonged and only termi nated upon the arrival of Funston. Aguinaldo tries to read the daily newspapers and tries to learn the opinion of the people of the United States concerning the Filipinos. His future intentions have not been an nounced. He spends much time seated by the barred window, watching peo ple passing up and down. This morning Aguinaldo was recog nized by a crowd of natives going up the river in a lighter. The natives gazed at him a while in silence and then began to jeer, calling him Emilio and vile names in the Tagalog lan guage. The guards quited the distur bance and Aguinaldo left ths window in disgust. The natives in Manila are indiffer ent at Aguinaldo's capture and it is difficult to ascertain what a majority of them really think. It is certain that Aguinaldo's influence is less strong than formerly, though it is still great. A reporter for the Associated Press has interviewed many Filipinos; call ing on both business and private men in Manila, .n well as representatives of the lower class and former insurgents on the capture of Aguinaldo. A ma jority of those seen were undoubtedly glad that Aguinaldo was captured and said the worst obstacle to a speedy pacification of the islanuds had been removed. Some natives mistrust Aguinaldo and advise his immediate deportation. Others believe that he can accomplish much good by advis ing his countrymen to yield to Ameri can authority. All agree that the out look is much brighter. SHOOTING TOURNAMENT Many Entries Made for Inter state Association's Ninth Contest.

Kansas City, March 30-A fire in which $200,000 worth of property was destroyed and five firemen, including Chief Hale, were injured, occurred at the Jacob Dold Packing company's plant on Eighth street, near the Kan sas line, tonight. The injured firemen are' Chief Hale. scalp cut by falling bricks. Ed. Dyer, ribs broken. Mike Mahoney, back and limbs in jured by falling wall. Thomas P. Considine, head cut by glass. John Nolan, leg and foot hurt. The cause of the fire is not known. It was first discovered in the box fact ory, after it had gained considerable headway. The first alarm was sent in at 6 p. m., and soon all the available firemen in the city were on the scene, but it was evident that it would be impossible to save the main building, in which the fire originated. The fire burned fiercely for three hours, dur ing which time the firemen worked to prevent its spreading to other build ings and at the end of that time was under control, but the main building was a total wreck. The main building of the Jacob Dold Packing company was destroyed by fire in September, 1899, entailing a loss of $350,00. The building was re built within three months thereafter, but the company did not resume opera tions, except in the manufacture of butterine. This department employed 75 men. All of the slaughtering of cattle, sheep and hogs has been car ried on at the company's plant at Wichita, Kans. It is said the Dold company propose to build a new plant in Armordale, which site is handy to the stock yards and the properties wherelthe fire occurred are not to be rebuilt now. Mr. Dold refused to make a state ment of the loss susained, but he said he valued all of the buildings at half a million dollars and that they were not fully insured. WASHBURN EXTENSION.

Combination Will Be Effected With Russia and France-Recent Demon stration of Friendliness Between the Kaiser and King Edward VII Hastened the Plan. For the last three months there have been persistent rumors of important diplomatic work being done in Italy by French and Russian agents. It was known that special envoys from Paris and St. Petersburg had been repeatedly sent to Rome to confer jointly with tl:e embassadors of both countries there and even directly with King Victor Emmanuel, but every effort to ascer tain the purport of the mysterious transactions has heretofore failed. The Chicago Inter Ocean correspond ent there throws light on them through the disclosures made by two important personages connected with the French ministry of foreign affairs. Italy is about to withdraw from the German Austrian alliance to form with France and Russia i new triple alliance. Said The Inter Ocean correspondent's infor mant: "Emperor William and Emperor Francis Joseph a few days ago de manded an explanation from Italy. and a very clear one has just been forward ed from Rome. There is to be a new combination. embracing Italy, France and Russia. and the details have al ready been nearly completed. "The new king Of Italy has always regarded Crispi's policy as injurious to Italy's welfare. King Humbert him self had misgivings concerning the wisdom of allowing Italy to be towed behind Prussian and Austria. to be used only in .an emergency. but Crispl had an uncanny influence over the murdered king, who lacked the energy to take the initiative and was always ready to seek shelter in a constitution al monarch's irresponsibility. He al lowed Crispi and his disciples to pur sue their policy of estrangement froml France and trying by every means to convince the Italians that their nation would profit by an alliance with the destinies of the German empire :,s shaped by Bismarck. The results have proved disastrous economically and po litically to Italy, which has been sacri ficed at every turn until her prosperity has been absolutely destroyed and her prestige reduced to naught. "When Victor Emmanuel ascended the throne, lie lost no time in mak ing overtures to France. His personal sympathies and judgment demanded it. while the public sentiment of the peninsula clamored for a speedy bring ing together of the two Latin nations. Russia was immediately consulted, and she gave assent under conditions which are now being discussed. The recent demonstrations of friendliness between England and Germany have hastened the negotiations wonderfully. France and Russia feel that the Aus tria-Hungarian empire is threatened with disruption and that if Italy were detached from Germany even an An glo-German combination could easily be checkmated. "The recent removal by France .( certain prohibitive duties against Ital Ian products is significant in this con nection. as is also the intense news paper campaign, evidently subsidized by the government, just started across the Alps. aimed to undo the previous work on the public mind by showing how closely related the two races are and how similar their political and commercial interests, and recalling the part taken by French armies in ef fecting Italian unification. "The coming visit of the Italian naval squadroa to French waters, where a number of Russian men-of-war will also be present, will serve as a pretext for great friendly demonstrations, and an official proclamation of the new alliance will probably be made then." State Advertising Censor. A state censor of advertising is the latest freak in proposed legislation in Illinois. A bill creating that office was introduced by Rpresentative Carl Mul ler of Chicago in the house. The cen sor is to receive the munificent remu neration of $3.000 per annum and ex penses for a term of four years and is to be appointed by the governor by and with the consent of the senate. The object of the bill is to prohibit sensa tional advertisements or false repre sentations in advertisements in news papers and otherwise and is designeu to reteh that class of merchants who advertise fire, bankrupt, assignee and other "sales." A Latin-Amerlean Union. The recent revival of Catholic senti ment in Latin America is being taken advantage of by pontifical statesmen to form a union of the Catholic coun tries of the.new world based on com munity of faith, but destined possibly to have political significance also. A symbol of this union is about to be built in Rome in a church primarily Intended to commemorate the recent Mexican pllgrimage, but to contain al tars to the patron saints of each Cen. tral and South American state.

The awful cost of strikes Is nowhere sore clearly portrayed than in the Chl Iag. building trades strike, which was i year old on Feb. 5. Any approxi nate figure of what it has cost the unions is hard to estimate, although some efforts have been made to do so. Reports from Chicago are to the ef Feet that in the coutnflict the workmen lost in wages more than $50,000,000. the building contractors lost over $75. 300.000 In profits and the material sup ply men another $75,000,000 through material unsold. In addition the re tall business of the city has been at a standstill for the past year. The strike was declared by the Building Trades Council. which at that time had 26.500 members. Other labor unions in. the building trades outside the council had a membership of over 10,000. In addition there were over 1,000 unorganized men. There was some trouble between the Building Trades Council and the Build Ing Contractors' Council. and, as nef ther side was willing to yield. a strike !ollowed. The value of the building in progress at the time of the strike was 610,000.000. In three months this shrunk to $3..100.000. and the amount ) building work planned. but stopped in account of the strike. Was $50,000, )00. During the progress of the strike i persons have been killed and 221 as saulted and more or less seriously in lured. It is estimated that nearly i4. )00 persons have left Chicago for other 7itles as a direct result of the strike. As to the cost to labor and capital of the strike, the following is given as the approximate figures: Lou to workmen in wages.............. $52,200,000 Los to contractors in profits........... 75,000,000 Loss to real estate, merchants. etc...... 50.000,000 Value of building operations suspended during 1900 on account of the strike (estimated) .......................... 127,000,000 As present the Individual unions in the building trades are making their )wn contracts with the contractors and are resuming work; but not one )f the questions for which the strike was declared has been settled. OMITTED HIS PENANCE. Calamlttes Followed When Keyes Didn't Crawl Around His Room. For tive years Sylvester Keyes. a Lumber dealer of Leon. O.. has made a practice of going once around his bed room on his knees every night before going to bed. He imposed this penance upon himself, believing that it was for his spiritual good. Mr. KeyestIas been visiting relatives north of his village. and being very tired the other night he omitted the custom for once. He was restless all night and disturbed in mind because of his neglect. In the morning his troubles began. Going down stairs to breakfast he stepped on a tack and wounded his foot. While eating breakfast he over- turned the coffee urn and scalded both legs. In the forenoon he helped one of the nmeo chop some firewood, and a stick lew up and .:truck him on the head. He started for the house, but slipped on the ice and fell. bruising his face and disco:lrin i one eye. Going up the steps into the house a loose eave trough fell and struck him on the shoulder. Once inside. Mr. Keyes had his various wounds ' sUssed and started for his room. but by mistake. owing to the bandaging of his injured eye, he opened the door leading to the cellar instead of the one going up stairs, next to it, and fell down the steps. With the help of the family the visit or finally managed to reach his room, where he went to bed to keep out of the way of more accidents. Mr. Keyes believes the misfortunes of the day were due to iris ner'vo:s state, resulting from worry over not performing his usual evening penance. Mlemorial of Victoria.
