F. Harris Suspended. Chicago, Dec. 12—J. F. Harris, who, under the name of J. F. Harris & Co., conducts the extensive grain business of J. Kennett, Hopkins & Co., was today suspended from the Chicago board of trade for two years on the charge of car rying on an outside business with illegit-. imate traders, contrary to the rules of the board. Harris is a member of the firm of Kennett, Hopkins & Co. His sus pension leaves the firm without >a repre sentative on the Chicago board. It is claimed by those best informed that the firm can still do business In Chlca'go. There Is a rule of the board which seems to prevent other members from helping those who have been put under the ban. It declares that any members suspended shall not be allowed the use of the clearing house settlement or delivery room, and that he shall not be permitted to trade upon the floor of the exchange cither through nn employe or a broker. The taking of evidence occupied but a short time, Harris conducting his own case, but offering no evidence. The prosecuting committee made a hard fight to get Harris’ sentence fixed at five years, the time given Kennett, but the (board took Into consideration the fact that the former was the Junior member of the firm and in a certain degree not responsible for Its actions to the same CKtent as the older members and insisted upon the two years’ sentence.

New York, Dec. 12.—Hector Ahlwardt, the anti-semite, spoke al Cooper union this evening on "The Essence of Modern Judaism.'' Only a handful of people gathered to hear the famous "Jew bait er.” There were just about as many policemen in uniform in the hall as there were spectators. There were a few Jews present. Ahlwardt said that the inquiry to be made was why the poor were be coming poorer and the rich richer. There was an interruption at this point and Ahlwardt asked that he be not inter rupted. Continuing he said that he would draw the difference between the Aryan and Semitic races. “There is," he said, "in every one of the Aryan race the love of labor. The Ary an races stand on the ground of labor, and while from this they are not free from all evil, yet at least the foundation is good.” At this point there was an unexpected Interruption. A young man directly in front of Ahlwardt rose in his seat and threw two missiles at him. They both missed, but as they struck the stage it was evident they were eggs. In a minute the place was in an uproar. A dozen policemen swooped down on the offender and he was hustled out. Ahlwardt said this exhibition was probably as good as a lecture. It showed a characteristic of the Jew. “Had this been an Aryan,” he said, "at least he would not have missed.” With the Aryan labor was a demand of nature. The Jews, however, looked upon labor as a curse, and always sought to throw the labor question on the shoul ders of the Aryan. .. Taking another tack, Ahlwardt said he did not want to attack the religion of the Jews. “The Jew can build all the synagogues he desires. If he does not eat pork it is none of our business; in fact, it Js a mat ter of congratulation, as he leaves us something he does not grasp for.” Ahlwardt then spoke of the Old Testa ment; of Moses and the passage of the Jews out of Egypt. He was frequently interrupted. In conclusion he stated that the blood of the Aryan race was running out through a great wound. The money was going into the coffers of the capitalists, and, while these were not all Jews, it was the Jewish influence that was over all. In answer to the invitation that he would hear anyone who wanted to de bate with him, two men in. the audience made short speeches, to which Ahlwardt replied, and the meeting came to an end. The policemen ranged themselves around the hall, and order was preserved. Ahl wardt was taken out the back way and quietly spirited away. _ notice.

Early In the war, before Lee had dem onstrated his preeminence as the south ern leader, he was severely criticised on more than one occasion by a certain Gen eral Whiting. Whiting had stood at the head of his class at West Point and was considered a very bright and capable man. One day President Davis, wish ing an officer for some important com mand, cqlled upon General Lee for ad vice. “What do you think of Whiting?" asked Davis. Lee answered without hes itation, commending Whiting ns one of the ablest men in the army, well qualified In every' way for even the most responsi ble position. One of the officers present was greatly surprised and at the flr^t op portunity drew Lee aside. “Don’t you know what unkind things Whiting has been saying about you?” he inquired. Lee’s answer was of the best. "I under stood," he said, "that the president de sired to know my opinion of Whiting, not Whiting’s opinion of mew” The Troops Worsted.
