IDLE COSSIP M'KINLEY DOES NOT WANT THIRD TERM. OVER HIS OWN SIGNATURE Gives Out Statement Clearly Defin ing Position He Occupies on Subject. Washingotn, June 11.-President McKinley today put an effectual-quiet us on the third term talk, which has gained some currency in the newspa pers through interviews with certain well known republicans favoring the renomination of the president for a third term. Shortly before today's cabient meeting adjourned Secretary Cortelyou gave to the press a signed statement by the president intended for the American people, announcing that he was not a candidate for a third term and would not accept a renomination if one was tendered. The decision to issue such a state ment was reached last night when the president read to the members of his cabinet his proposed statement, at the same time personally pledging each to secrecy until the public an nouncement was made. The cabinet on hearing the reasons the president advanced, which are' substantially set forth in the announcement today that talk of a third term would react on national policies the administration is endeavoring to promote, coincided with the view of their chief that the present was an opportune time for its promulgation. The phraseology of the announcement was considered fur ther by the cabinet today and after a change or two from last night's draft Secretary Uortelyou was direct ed to make it public. The president's intimate personal and political friends later expressed themselves as not surprised at the de cision announced, but quite' generally conceded that they had not expected such an announcement at this time, thinking that the president would not so quickly take heed of the third term gossip. They said, however, that they believed that the president had shown his quick and excellent political judg ment by crushing a third term move ment in its very birth. Following is the signed statement of the president, as given out at the white house today: "I regre't that the suggestion of a third term has been -made. I doubt whether I am called upon to give it. notice. But there are now questions of the gravest importance before the administration and the country, and their just consideration should not be prejudiced in the public mind by even the suspicion of a thought of a third term. In view, therefore, of the re iteration of the suggestion of it, I will say now, once and for all, expressing a long-settled conviction, that I am only not and will not be a candidate' for a third term, but would not accept a nomination for it, if it were tendered me. "My only ambition is to serve tlwough my second term to the ac ceptance of my countrymen, whose generous confidence I so deeply ap preciate, and then with them to do my duty in the ranks of private citt zenship. WM. M'KINLEY. "Executive Mansion, Washington, June 10, 1901." This statement was submitted at last night's meeting of the cabinet, which had been informally called to gether. It met with hearty approval There was unanimous concurrence in the belief that public discussion, it allowed to go on, would not only place the president in a false light before the country. but would arouse antag onism and seriously embarass the ad ministrationi in the solution of the great questions before it HANNA'S COMMENT. Announcement of President Only What He Expected. Cleveland, O., June 11.-"It's just what I expected the president would say, if he said anything at all on the subject," was the comment of Sena tor Hanna today when he read Presi dent McKinley's statement in regard to a third term. "I have never ex changed one word with the president concerning the matter," he continued, "and have considered all the talk bearins on the subject as premature. According to my judgment, it is too early to discuss presidential cand- dates for the next term." Asked if he was in favor of ngn taintg the precedent estab1Uiahd by President Washington in reference to the number of years the chief exees tire should hold ofce, Mr. Heann saide: '"I do not think the precedent set by Washingtbn has a great deSal to do with the matter. But there is undoubtedly a strong sentiment among the people aanlast such a prop ositleo" Closing Out Sale AtCoae at itsaler's harness department, cansistig aC sadcidl beares, brlj dies, bits, spers, robes, blankets, wbls ranesma nd awartan pe.

Chicago, June 11.-Children of Christian Scientists and of believers in "mind" cure, "faith" cure, and ",'i vine" healing, will hereafter be com mitted for medical treatment to var ious institutions. Such was the de cision made today by Judge Tuthill, of the Cook county court. in commenting on the case of Joseph Chamberlain, who, while suffering from a shrunken leg, was taken out of the custody of his mother, a Christian Scientist, and committed to the cripples' home. Ac cording to the views of Judge Tuthill, adults are entitled to use faith cure or anything else to combat disease. Chil ren. however, according to his idea, must have medical attentioa whenever it is needed. When parezits refuse to have their children treated when they are long suffering, Judge Tuthill holds that it is time for the authorities to step in and commit them to institu tions suitable for the care of chil dren.

OBTAINED BY BRIBERY Commission Report Recommends that They Be. Discontinued by Government. London, June 11.--The Blue Book was issued today, containiag the re port of the Transvaal concesilons commission. It is clear, the commis sion avers, that a state which has annexed another is not legally bound by any contracts, made by; the state which has ceased to exist and that no court of law has jurisdiction to en force such contracts if the annexing state refuses to. recognize them. The commission recommends that the gov ernment decline to recognize the dyn amite and other concessions and adds that it is satisfied Dr. Leyds and oth ers have received from certain di rectors shares and financial consid eration. Regarding the Netherlahds-South African railroad, the report, while ad mitting that the concession was le gally granted, considers it injurious that a trunk railroad line should be the monopoly of a single,company, es pecially a foreign company. The con cession should be terminated, even if the company conducting it is not open to complaint. But, its extraordi nary action in the war precludes the possibility of its continuance under a British administration. Discussing the position of the shareholders, the report says: "Belligerant acts, for which all shareholders were legally responsible, caused immense damage to Great Britain, Cape Colony and Natal. The British government as an act of grace may show some consider ation to the shareholders, but the commission considers this should. be postponed till the shareholders have exercised the remedies open to them against the directors, and until the damage done by the company is made good."
