B'anna Don't Want a Cabinet Position.
Washington, Nov. 24. Senator Proc
tor is authority for the positive state
ment that Mark Hanna will not be a
member of McKinley's cabinet. The
senator is not only a close political, but
is also a warm- personal friend of Mark
Hanna. It was while talking over the
political eituation today that Senator
Proctor gave this interesting informa
tion concerning the political prospects of
According to senator Proctor, the
president-elect and many of his follow
ers will be delighted if Mr. Hanna would
consent to take a place in the cabinet.
Mr. Hanna, however, has no aspirations
n that direction, and it is useless to use
his name in connection with the cabinet.
Senator Proctor also took occasion to
wipe bis own name from tne cabinet
slate. He has enjoyed all the glory that
goes with a cabinet position, and he
would not relinquish bis seat in the sen
ate for the cabinet.
Aristocratic Tendency In the
Paris, Nov. 24. M. Billot, minister of
war, in addressing a deputation of mili
tary editors on Monday, made a remark
able speech, in which he complained
the present system of dispensation and
exemptions in the army resulted in the
fact that 50 per cent of the men only
served with the colore in a single year.
These abuses, he said, gave ajdistinctly
anti-equity and aristocratic character to
the army, which is utterlv at variance
ith the republican idea, and which
must be amended. He was working ac
tively, he added, to this end, and also at
an important measure aiming at the
creatioii of army inspectorsjas an inter
mediary authority between the war min
ister and the commanders of the 20 army
These commanders, General Billot
said, must not be satraps, subject to no
rule but their good will and pleasure
Therefore he proposed to appoint a su
perior grade of inspectors, each having
under his command two or three army
corps, which they would command in
time of war.
Slave Traffic In the New Hebrides.
Sydney, N. S. W.t Nov. 24. Reports
have been received from New Hebrides
islands, lying west of Fiji, that the na

6 to 10 per bead, and that many are
subjected to great cruelties. The New
Hebrides are- under joint Anglo-French
control. The New Hebrides Company
which has large interests in the islands
last year sent a deputation to Sir T. Mc
Ilwraith. the colonial treasurer of
Queensisland, complaining of this join
control, and suggesting that Sir W. Mc
Gregor, administrator of British New
Guinea, have jurisdiction over the New
Hebrides.' Sir T. Mcllwraith said in
reply that the only solution lay in the
annexation of the islands by iGreat
Britain or the estaohshment of a protec
torate over them.
There is a British high commissioner
of tbe West Pacific, who has jurisdiction
to settle disputes between British sub
jects living in these islands and others
The Anglo-French control was fixed by
a convention between Great Britain and
France October, 1887, in which it was
agreed that the protection of persons and
property in the new Hebrides should be
secured by means of a mixed com mis
sion composed of naval officers belong
ing to the English and French naval eta
tiona in the Pacific.

San Fbancisco, Nov. 24 Judging
from appearances tonight, the people of
this city have gone-daft over the flying
machine which is alleged to have soared
through the heavens during the past few
nights. On every street corner down

with heads thrown back, gazing at the
sky. Anything irom Jupiter to the
moon was picked out as an airship by
the credulous people, who stood looking
at one bf the planets until aching neck
and limbs made them desist. Early in

through tbe air, and the newspapers
were overwhelmed by telephone mes
sages from people in various parts of the
city who thought they bad discovered
the mysterious airship.
