MANILA, March 10.-11:25 a. m.— Rebel incendiaries landed at the village of Pandacan last night for the purpose, it is alleged, of terrorizing those of the inhabitants who do not sympathize with the insurrection. A number of houses were destroyed. The United States transport Grant, which sailed from New York Jan. IS), having on board Major General Law- GENERAL HENRY W. LAWTON. ton, the Fourth infantry and a battalion of the Seventeenth infantry, arrived this morning. With the' exception of San Pedro Macati, where Filipino sharpshooters incessantly annoy the American troops, matters are unusually quiet along the line. The weather is much cooler to day. Dewey's Henlth Menaced. WASHINGTON, March 10.—When his attention was called to the statement coming from Vancouver to the effect that Admiral'Dewey is breaking down ant}. cannot last a month longer, Se6re taryi»ng Baid that he had no informa tion '••whatever on this, point. The stories of the admiral's ill health have been in circulation with more or less persistency for the last four months. They are all traceable to private reports uid though officers of the navy who have returned recently from Manila state that Dewey's health so far as it could be gauged from his appearance appears to be about the same as it has been for the last year, they agree that the private reports probably have a fair basis of fact. It is not denied by those officers that the admiral has aged in his appearance notably within the last year his hair is undoubtedly whiter and his figure 6hows signs of that weakness which might be expected to come with ad vancing years. Dewey will be 62 years old next December, and for many years has not been a strong man physically. In the meatime he has imposed 'upon himself the most severe and exacting duties, so that it is but natnral that his frail physique should show the effoct of the tremendous strain It is said by persons familiar with the Philippine climate that the second year is the hardest to bear for a Cau casian, and Dewey soon will begin his second year there. In addition Ho this he labors under the drawback of having undergone a most severe surgical oper ation for the relief of his liver. A man needs a sound liver in the Philippines of all places. These facts lead naval of ficers to believo the reports that Dewey is showing signs of physical strain. Andemon to Succeed Miller. WASHINGTON, March 10.—A change in command of the United States forces at Iloilo will occur on March 27, result ing from the retirement of General Marcus Miller, who on that date reaches the age limit of 64 years. General Mil ler's services in the Philippines have been recognized by the war department as of great value, his capture of Iloilo without l^ss to the American forces hav ing marked an important epoch in the operations in the islands. His com pulsory retirement is a matter of regret to the department. He will be succeeded by Colonel Thomas M. Anderson. McLane Rifle Stand* Test. WASHINGTON, March 10.—There was a private test at the navy yard yester day of a new magazine rifle, the inven tion of S. M. McLane of Cleveland. Gen erul Miles and some other army officers witnessed the test. The now gun uses the gases generated by the firing to operate the magazine mechanism. It can be so arranged that one pull of the trigger empties the magazine, or it can be lired as slowly as desired, the auto matic arrangement ejecting the empty shell, reloaliiu and cocking the piece. The test, u.i the whole was satisfactory. AVhaiit iiimcod Fifty For Cent. YORK, Neb., March 10.—At a farm ers' institute in this county, a vote was taken as to the condition of winter wheat.

CmcAao, March 10.—The Chicago end of the investigation regarding army beef began yesterday with the arrival of Major General James F. Wade and Brigadier General George L. Gillespie, members of the court of inquiry. They had been preceded by General George W. Davis, Lieutenant Colonel George B. Davis and Major M. Lee. A short executivo session was held at army headquarters and it resulted in a decision to defer the taking of testimony until after an inspection had been made of the packing houses at the stock yards, where the refrigerator beef aiiu canned beef are prepared. The court began in the killing room. The next place vis ited was the cooling room. Here were found several halves of beef which had been condemned, either because the beef was badly bruised, or gave evi dence that the animal had had tuber culosis. This condemned beef had been placed by itself and while the court was present men came in to remove it to the rendering tanks, preparatory to turning it into a fertilizer. The court examined these tanks carefully, possibly in view of the statement that the carcasses passed through them. There certainly was no evidence of such passage. From this room the court was taken to the one in which the meat is prepared for canning and saw the men at work cutting up the meat. The next room visited was the canning department. Here the cooked meat was brought in huge caldrons and put into cans by machinery, the cans re moved and sealed, only a pinhole being left open in the top. Next the cans were put under an iron tank, where they were subjected to a heat of 250 de grees—the sterilizing process. Whilo the court was in this room a number of caus of roast beef whioh had an old ap pearance and which it was said had been in Porto Rico, were opened. The meat inside was good and the members of the court tasted it, but of course ex pressed no opinion. Subsequently the court was shown through the packing and other branches. Barring the kill ing room, everything about the estab lishment was very clean. After leaving the yards the court went to the bureau of animal industry and obtained some information from W. S. Devoe, who is in charge. They read the law govern ing the inspection of animals and in quired as to the details' of the work of inspection. Inspectors are stationed in the yards proper and they condemn any diseased cattle they see.. The inspec tors at the. packing house supplement their work by examining the carcasses after slaughter and throw out any bearing evidence of pulmonary trouble. Democrat) to Meet at Dei Sloineg. RES MOINES, March 10.—The Demo cratic central committee, in session here yesterday, decided to hold the next state convention in Des Moines, but the date was not fixed.

VOLUME XXXIV NO. if FAIL TO ELECT SENATOR v'-'-'Mv Joint Assembly of Utah Legis lature Adjourns Sine Die.' «, TEH EXCITING BALLOTS TAKEN. MUCUUK'S Supporters Claim a Partial Vic tory by tho Defeat of Frank J. Cannon and Have Nominated Him In Advance for tlie Sonatorslilp Two Tears Hence. Republicans Jubilant. SAI/T LAKE, March 10.—A large crowd assembled at the legislative hall last night to witness the closing of a sena torial campaign that has extended throughout the entire length of the session, in which A. W. McCune has been in the lead the greater part of the time until yesterday. The entry of Hon. George Q. Cannon in the contest Wednesday was the sensation of the day and on the balloting last nighty when he ran up ahead of McCune, the prediction seemed to be general that he would finally be elected. The balloting last night was exciting and numerous speeches were made in the interest of the senatorial candidates. C. C. Richards of Ogden was taken np by the King forces, augmented by some scattering additions, and he re ceived a flattering vote of several bal lots. His name finally dropped oat of the list and 20 votes went to James H. Moyle. After this there was a general scattering of forces, and at midnight President Nebeker declared the joint as sembly adjourned without the election of a senator. Frank J. Cannon re mained in the race to the last with nearly all his original followers. The McCune supporters are claiming that they scored a partial victory by the de feat of Frank J. Cannon, and McCone's friends have nominated him in advance for the senatorship two years hence. The Republicans are jubilant of the fact that on account of party dissensions, the legislature, overwhelmingly Demo cratic, has failed to elect a United States senator. The 161st and last ballot was as fol lows: McCune, 20 George Q. Cannon, 19: F. J. Cannon, 7 King, 4 J. H. Moyle, 4 Powers, 4 Nebeker, 7 Suth erland, 2. Finds Much to Criticise In Oklahoma. GUTHRIE, O. T., March 10.—The spe cial committee which has been conduct ing a legislative investigation of terri torial affairs, made its report to the" senate yesterday. The committee fliids much to criticise in the management, of the principal offices of the territory, hot makes no charges of gross fraud. The committee reported that the funds aris ing from the leasing of school lands had' been deposited by the governor to suit his convenience, but that every ef fort to determine whether the governor received a commission on bonds so de posited had failed, the bankers refusing v: to tell. The management of the terri torial library was condemned and the charge made that Librarian Dodson did not attend to the duties of that office, but hired a girl at a much less salary than he receives. The public printing contracts were denounced as "gross 6teals, given at outrageously high prices." Several territorial officials are charged with having drawn money to which they were not entitled, though perhaps not iu violation of the law. Western Passenger Meeting CHICAGO, March 10.—The big meeting' of western lines which was expeoted yesterday did not develop. It was called for the purpose of deciding upon rates and arrangements for the big conven tions of the year. Owing to severe snowstorms in the west, a number of passenger representatives who were to* have attended could not get to Chicago $ in time. Furthermore, there is no ne cessity of a meeting until the transcon-' tinental lines shall have settled then: differences over rates for the National1 Educational association convention in Los Angeles. The meeting was, there? fore, adjourned until next Tuesday, when it will be held in St. Louis. Nebraska Legislature.

The to allow cities and towns to regulate* telephone rates, was reported for in definite postponement, but the report was rejected and the bill recommended for passage. 1"' Asphyxiated ly Coal ..
