Result New York Makes Hill
the Probable Candidate
for President
He Is Credited With Having Made the
Fight Which Came So Near Putting
Bird Coler in the Governor's Chair
in New York—Tom Johnson Out of

Foremost of the causes which have
enabled Mr. Hill to step back into the
center of the democratic stage after his
temporary exile at Wolfert's Roost is

When be undertook to conduct the
fight in behalf of Coler, a man who was
[discredited by the greater part of Tam
many hall, no one would have been
rash enough to foretell that he \yould
not only roll up a splendid plurality in
greater New York but would be able to
make the contest in the state itself so
Close that the democratic leaders are
•till able to claim a victory until the
Uttermost hill towns are heard from.
Altho there Is practically no chance
.that those claims may be substantiat
ed there will be the narrow republican
margin to Hill's credit.
Many political experts thought the
Tammany leaders would outwardly af-
p:t lord Coler the support promised during
V' the campaign, only to knife him on all
•ides at the polls. It was not believed
the New York machine would submit to
being directed by an outsider who
would be certain to receive all the cred

•^-trol to a man from up the state, and to
David B. Hill of all men.
But Mr. Hill seems to have re-estab
ifisbed himself firmly in the good graces
'-kktt Tammany. The face of the returns
prove that he has been able to com
cVnutnd the democratic forces of. the city

This logical candidacy becomes all
the more appareht with a glance at the
Jrituatlon thruout the country. No other
«''candidate able to offer substantial op
position is In sight Tom Johnson of
.Cleveland, who was running a political
foot race with the nomination for the
presidency as his sole ultimate goal,
has been so completely snowed under
by the Ohio blizzard that he is not even
on the political map.
Mr. Rose of Wisconsin, who was
making a fight for the governorship
•with considerable chance of success at
the outset and with the democratic
presidential nomination in the baek
ground of his day dreams all the time,
has meta fate only slightly less as
phyxiating in a political sense than
Mt. Pattlson of Pennsylvania, who
has twice been elected by the democrats
of his state and asked for a third in
dorsement by his party, would have
^been a most formidable opponent to
any presidential aspirant If he had won,

Never before in his career has Mr.
Hill enjoyed a clear field. When his
prominence made him a national figure
before there was in his pathway Grover
Cleveland who, by virtue of circum
stances alone, was an insurmountable
obstacle, and there were always other

there is not in the political horizon a
man who can dispute, with any degree
of success, the claims of Mr. Hill to the
consideration of the national democ

from under the silver advocate. Even
In Colorado, the home of Teller, the 16
to 1 plank seems to have been smashed
by republican victories in the congres
sional fight.
It was his inability to swallow this
doctrine that brought Mr. Hill into dis
favor with the democracy of the west,
and his opposition to the support of the
silver plank by Tammany caused the
estrangement between himself and the
Tammany leaders. Today this is only
a memory, of shadowy texture at that,

Entries Made by Many Soldiers' Wid

Washington, Nov. 6.—The interior de
partment has suspended, with a view to
cancellation, a large number of alleged
fraudulent laiid entries in Nebraska
made by soldiers' widows, who, it is
charged, have entered into an agree
ment for the transfer of the land to
cattlemen. W. N. Lesser, of Iowa, a
special agent whose headquarters have
b^en for several jrears at North Platte,
Neb., has been suspended In conne«tIon
with the proceedings. The action fol
lows an investigation that has been
quietly conducted in Nebraska by
Colonel John S. Mosby, the former
guerrilla leader, who is now a special

Under the law soldiers' widows have a

without any residence requirements
but they are required to make improve

understood that the women who made

Pretoria, Nov. 6.—A decision which
has been handed down from the su

Kruger's proclamation of October, 1889,
abrogating the payment of rent and in
terest during the South African war, to
be invalid, has produced consternation
here and in Johannesburg. Altho it Is
expected that many of the better class
of landlords and creditors will accept

Report That Female Leader Is Cap
tured Declared Untrue.
Victoria, B. C., Nov. 6.—The steamer
Shinano Maru brought news that anti
foreign placards are scattered all over
Cheng Tu and that the Boxer disturb
ances are now rife thruout the province
of Szechuan. A report that their female
leader, Kwan Ying, or "Goddess of
Mercy," has been captured in a battle
fought outside the walls of Cheng Tu
is untrue. The Boxers' leader is about
17 years of age, ajid the woman cap
tured and beheaded was over 60. The
Boxers continue to raid out-of-the-way
villages, and several churches have
been burned and converts massacred.

Dams and Other Obstructions Held to
Have Beneficial Effect.
Washington, Nov. 6.—"During recent
years there has been a change of opin
ion as to the self-purification of river
waters,"^says a report of the geological
survey. "The most rapid purification
Is found to take place in still water, and
not in deep, as formerly held. The Is
sue between Chicago and St. Louis, oc
casioned by the opening of the Chicago
drainage canal, thru which the sewage
of Chicago is conducted to the Mlssls
sipplt river via Desplaines and Illinois
rivers, is based upon the condition In
the minds of the people of St. Louis
that there will arise effects detriment
al to the water of the Mississippi river
at that city. The whole dispute centers,
therefore, about the old moot question
aa to ho wlong a distance^t is necessary
for a river to flow in Jgfder to purify
itBelf. sir
"We know from chemical analysis
and physical examination that a vary
ing degree of purification takes pjgc#
in a river.. In early days this was
thought to be due to aeration, and the
tumbling of water down mountain sides
became the basis for ceptic typification
of purity. The experiments of the Mas
sachusetts state board of health have
shown that aeration has little or no ef
fect upon the condition of organic mat
ter In water—that is, the organic mat
ter is not assisted in its oxidation by
agitation in the air. It was also found
that the highest degree of activity in
oxidation processes is to be found in
quiescent or stagnant waters. It then
became clear that
in a
sluggish stream is far more effective
than In a swift current and that dams
and other impediments have a benl
ficial effect upon the condition of water
in river channels."

Denver Stockman: The low price
of cattle on the markets and the high
price of beef Is causing much dis
cussion among western stockmen just
now. As yet the western farmers are
still busy figuring what to do with
their crops and very few feeders have
been sold for local feeding.
Those who have been looking into
rhe lamb feeding proposition are not
favorably Impressed with the outlook
and are commencing to talk cattle feed
ing. Quite a number of rangemen are
also looking aroun'd with a view of put
ting their cattle on feed for the winter
instead of sacrificing' t'hem at present
lotv prices. The only point with this
class of cattlemen is whether to rough
them tfhru and sell them as feeders in
the spring or to put them on full feed
and turn them Into finished beef.Speak
ing of the situation the other day a well
posted cattleman said: "I have about
made up my infod to put half my cat

Prompt relief will be given the dis

commission to be used for the purchased Qedar Falls^ and" Elliott Frasier, Morn
of food and to charter vessels to trans
port it to the Philippine ports.
Gov. Taft inquired of the secretary of
war as to the advisability of purchasing
some of the food in the United States,
but an Investigation here demonstrated
that these supplies could be purchased
more cheaply in China and other east
ern countries, and that it could be
placed in the Philippines in a much
shorter time if purchased in the orient
than in the Occident.
A report received at the war depart
ment yesterday shows that the military
authorities are collecting Information
from each of the provinces as to the
condition of the natives, roads and
trails and lines of communication. Re
ports already received indicate a devas
tated country. Thousands of natives
are without shelter and few crops have
been planted. Tpe wet season makes
all roads heavy, and it will be a long
time before the country has recovered
from the effects of the war.

Commander Martin said this morning

This \message is by far the longest

On board the warship are several

station on the way, most of them being
messages of congratulation to Marconi
from the Czar of Russia and King
Humbert. The Carlos Alberto can
