PRAISE FOR THE AMERICANS He Corrects Some False Impressions Regarding the Attitude ol the Germans. Chicago. Jan. 3.—Maj. Von Sonnen burg, German military attache to the emperor of Japan, the man who carried the message between Admiral Von Diedrich and Admiral Dewey by which permission was given for the transportation of Captain General Au gust! from Manila to Hong Kong on a German warship, is In Chicago. Major Von Sonnenburg is the typical army of ficer. He is a broad-shouldered young man with an erect carriage. He was seen by a reporter at the Auditorium and related certain hitherto unwritten bits of the history of the American oper ations in the Philippines. "I am a student of military affairs," he said. "Perhaps I might be called a theoretical warrior." Inasmuch as he has the Iron Cross for bravery at Sedan and was in 27 battles of the Franco-Prussian war, he is cer tainly a practical fighter as well. "After the Greek-Turko war I went on to the Orient," he continued. "I was with Prince Henry and at the outbreak of the Spanish-American war I accom panied Admiral Von Diedrich to Manila. I didn't witness the destruction of Mon tejo's fleet by your Admiral Dewey, but I saw much of the subsequent events. Because of what I saw I want to correct at least one false impression, that there was any ill feeling between the com manders of the American and German fleets. There was a disagreement, I ad mit, over the right of the Americans to search German ships, but that was soon ! settled. Then as to the Augusti incident, there was nothing secret about that transaction. I myself, was the messen ger between the two admirals in the dis cussion over the disposition of Augusti. Admiral Von Diedrich asked whether or not Admiral Dewey would object to Cap tain General Augusti taking passage on one of the German dispatch boats run ning to Hong Kong. Admiral Dewey said that he would not if the captain gen eral would make some kind of parole by which he would no longer bear arms against the United States. This was given and the incident was closed, as the diplomats would say. "As to the Americans, both ashore and aboard ship, I may say that I never met a finer body of men. I admire your vol unteers. To my mind they furnish mag nificent material for soldiers, but I am afraid that they have n hard task before them in the Philippines. I shouldn't want the task of controlling those islands unless I had fully 50,000 men behind me. Those natives are going to bo hard prob lems to solve. Since the finishing of the Philippine question. I have been con nected with the imperial army of Japan as a student of its methods of military discipline. To speak very conservatively, 1 believe that next to the German army there is not a finer body of lighting in» n in the world than that same little Japan ese collection of troops. Their discipline is perfect and any nation that picks a quarrel with the Japanese is going to have no easy time of it. I consider them one of the important factors in future Oriental complications." Uni when Major Von Sonnenburg was questioned in regard to these same Ori ental problems he was silent. He said that he was still connected with the Japanese government and with that of Germany as well and could say nothing. Turning to more personal matters, lie said that he was on his way to Washing ton with letters to Secretary Alger and General Miles. Ho would spend a few days about the department in Washing ton and then would go on to Berlin to report to his own government. THINGS MOVING ALONG SMOOTHLY New York, Jan. 3.—A dispatch to the Tribune from Havana says: American control in Cuba works smoothly. Generals Brooke and Ludlow are beginning the re- I organization of the civil administration I satisfactorily. The Cubans are well pleased j Part of the Spaniards ate sullen, but the' commercial classes are satisfied witli tho ; new regime. The understanding is that no members of the former autonomist cabinet are to be included in General Brooke's pro posed council of advisers. They are ail unpopular and lack the confidence of both elements. Civil Governor Do Castro, by order of the military authorities, has abol ished the use of passports and of stamped j paper in the government office. They were annoyances. Prompt steps have also been taken for improving the system of hygiene. The chief interest on Monday centered at the customs house. Colonel Bliss was ; assisted by the treasury expert, Mr. Don-i aldson, who will he in charge at Santiago. The merchants had prepared a change. Since noon on Sunday fifteen vessels had entered the harbor with cargo and for dis charge under the American tariff. The first vessel was the Norwegian schooner Kitty, from Mobile, with jnerehandise. A Spanish ship, the Mexico of Barcelona, ar rived in ballast. Among Monday's arrivals was the Seguranca, from New York, with merchandise. American shippers seem to have improved their opportunities. Some confusion result ed, as no tariff rates had been translated into Spanish. This deficiency will soon be corrected. The importers had secured American money with which to pay duties. The posteffiee service for the city and for eign mail shows improvement. The con fusion stil! is due to inefficient employes. The demoralization in the island service cannot be remedied immediately. Chief Director Rathburne's first order after tak ing charge was to abolish the franking privilege, which has been so seriously abused. A mistake made in Washington in printing 2'/â-cent stamps for American correspondence has been remedied by sell ing the stamps for 2 cents. The police service is being slowly orgun Ized. No general disorder exists. Two or three homicides during the last two days have been of the ordinary kind and have had no significance. Cubans and Spaniards are getting along together pretty well. Some fears of social demoralization of which Americans complain will be correct ed when the police organization is more advanced. The military authorities do not want to use troops for duty of this kind. CLOSER RELATIONS ARE WANTED New York, Jan. 3.—The Times says: Ne gotiations have been pending for some time for closer relations between the New York, New Haven & Hartford and the'Boston & Albany railraods, and within the.jtast three days these negotiations have assumed a phase which, certain railroad men say, may result In the control of the Boston & Al bany passing Into the hands of the dther New England corporation. The trains of the New Haven & Hartford and t^he Boston & Albany come Into New York over the same tracks, but the first nam^ corpora tion has a great advantage over the other line In the matter of terminal facilities. For the past two or three years the New Haven & Hartford management has been extending its property holdings north of New York city and improving Its trackage and terminal facilities. For a while there has been considerable friction Ip the mat ter of policy between the New York Cen tral and the New Haven & Hartford, but it Is believed to have been removed and much more cordial relations now exist be tween those two companies. It is how re garded as the fixed policy of the New Haven & Hartford management to assume control as far as possible of the New Eng land railroad traffic at this point. HALSTEAD MAY BE PROMOTED New York, Jan. 3.—The Times this morn ing repeats the story denied on Its first publication last week that the retirement of Samuel Sloane from the presidency of tho Delaware, Lackawanna & Western railroad next month will be followed by the promotion to that office of W. F. Hal stead, at present second vice, president and general manager of tho road. Mr. Halstead has been connected with the Lackawanna system continuously for about 47 years. He was 17 years old when he entered the service of the company, and he worked himself up through the various grades of trackman, conductor, assistant superin tendent, division superintendent and super intendent. Since Juno 1. 1886, he has been the general manager of the entire system. The selection of Mr. Halstead as President Sloane's successor will signify the desire of the dominating influences in Lackawanna to continue the present policy of manage ment. Mr. Halstead has practically direct ed the operation of the system for the past five years, and the relations between him and President Sloane have been entirely harmonious. REV. HILLIS WILL SUCCEED ABBOTT Chicago, Jan. 3.—News was received here late last night that Rev. Newell Dwight Hillis, pastor of the Central church in this city, is to bo called to the pastorate of tho famous Plymouth church of Brooklyn, as tho successor of Dr. Lyman Abbott. The formal call will be extended to Dr. Hillis soon after the meeting of the com mittee of the hurch, to be held today. Dr. Hillis is a native of Iowa, and is 40 years of age. He was euiieated at GrinneU acad emy, at Lake Forest university and at .Mc Cormick seminary. For three years after leaving his; theological studies he was pas tor of the First Presbyterian church of Peoria. In December, IMF, he succeeded Professor Swing at the Central church. Dr. Hillis, like his predecessors of the Central and Plymouth churches, is a writer. The tour books lie has published are "Fore tokens of Immortality," "How the Inner Light Failed," "A Man's Value to Society" and "The Investment of Influence." Biz Distillery Reopens. Peoria, 111., Jan. 3.—Tho Great Western distillery, destroyed by lightning last June, has been remodeled und enlarged and will resume today with a capacity of 15,000 bushels of corn daily, which means an out put of Go, Oui gallons of alcohol every day. This is the largest distillery in the world, and work has been pushqd on repairing it owing to the unprecedented demand for spirits for smokeless powder by various foreign governments. According to the novels of Richardson and his con temporaries, in the olden days men used to admire women who screamed I upon the least provoca 1 tion and fainted on all I opportunities. R i e h - ardson's heroines were always toppling out I of their chairs, fall ' ing in a "dead faint" in their lovers' arms, having their stays cut and their hands slapped, their tem ples bathed and their noses smullitig saltcd. . Both the women nnd the 'men have changed radically since those days., The modern man does not admire the fainting woman, neither does lie marry her. If by chance he does, he is only a man, and lives tv' regret it. There is no reason why any woman should be a faint ing woman. General bodily weakness and nervousness in women are due to weakness or disease of the delicate, special organs of the sex. Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription is a scientific and unfailing remedy fur all disorders of this description. It imparts health and strength to the sensitive and susceptible organs upon which a woman's general health is largely dependent. It quiets and tones up the nerve^, restores the vigor of youth, rounds out the emaciated form, imparts the glow of health, to the complexion and transforms Vvcak, sickly, nervous invalids into new, healthy, happy women. It fits for wife'aoqd and mother hood. " Words fail to describe my suffering before using Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription," writes Mrs. Sallie Key, of Tampico, ('.ranger Co., Tenu. "I had inflammation, irritation nnd profuse flowing and was very nervous and suffered terri bly at nl! times. My feet and limbs were cold. I had palpitation of the heart, nnd tny back was so weak that I could not turn myself in bed. The thought of food sickened me. My kidueys were very badly affected. I had been down six months. I could not sleep night or day and had given up all hope. My husband got me some of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription. I took it for five mouths and at the end of that time could walk a mile and do all my own housework I am sure I would lie iu my grnve if it had not been for the ' Favorite Prescription.'

Washington, Jan. 3.—Gen. Otis, at Ma nila, has been notified by cable of the.ar rangements that have been completed to speedily reinforce his command by the dispatch of six regiments of regular in fantry. The Twentieth, now at Fort Leavenworth, will sail from San Fran cisco on the transport Scandia, Jan. 7, and is timed to reach Manila by the end of the month. Maj. Gen. Lawton has been in command of the Fourth regiment, now at Fort Sheridan, 111., the Twelfth at Jefferson barracks and the Seventeenth at Columbus barracks, O., and is di rected to sail with them Jan. 12 on the transports Mohawk and the Massachu setts, preceding by way of the Suez canal. This force under Gen. Lawton is expected to reach the Philippines the sec ond week in February. The other two regiments selected for garrison duty in the Philippines, the Third infantry, at Fort Snelling, Minn., and the Twenty second at Fort Crook, Neb., will depart from San Francisco as soon as trans ports are available. The army steamer Senator, which left Manila, Dec. 15, with the Astor battery and other troops bound for San Francisco, is due there early next week, and will be ready to re turn with either the Third or the Twenty second regiment five days later. While everything is being done by the war department authorities to expedite the departure of these troops in com pliance with repeated informations from Gen. Otis that he is anxious to exchange his volunteers for regulars, it has been found impossible to start them much earlier than the middle of January, which was the time set when it was first decided two weeks ago to send a portion of the needed force by way of New York on account of the lack of transport fa cilities in the Pacific, Until these troops reach the Philii pines it is not believed by the authorities that Gen. Otis will un dertake any aggressive operations for the extension of the American sover eignty over the various provinces now held by the insurgents, although he has full diseretion in the matter, but that he will reserve his forces for use in emer gencies, should the insurgents grow un manageable in the vicinity of Manila. Confidence was expressed at the war department that there would be no bat tie at Iloilo after every resource of peace able negotiations to induce the rebels to evacuate the city had been exhausted. INDIANS ARE THREATENING Tacoma, Wash., Jan. 3.—Passengers who arrived on the Aik! from Alaska, some of whom left Dawson as late as December 3 , report that tho Chilcot Indians are terror izing the white inhabitants of Pyramid harbor, near Skagvvay, and have threat ened to massacre them. Tho night before Christmas whites appeared at the Chilcot village with a big supply of whisky, which was sold to the Indians without reserve. The entire tribe got drunk Christmas, and with" knives and guns compelled all the whites in that locality to leave. When the Alki left Skagway 110 blood had been shed, but trouble was Imminent. On reaching Indian liver the miners were I informed that two men, names unknown, ! had frozen to death on the Yukon between I Selkirk and Dawson. They were towing a j scow full of dressed or frozen beef and on 0110 cold night perished. The winter has been so open that Lake Bennett remained I unfrozen up to December 23. I In October a speculator cornered the to I bacco and butter market at Dawson, and since then both articles have been selling at from $2 to $3 a pound. Given Public Whipping. Evansville, Ind., Jan. 3.—Minor Garrett, Elijah Scott, Frank Ourl and William Mor ris, boys, ranging from 10 to 15 years of age, were given a public whipping in lha I police court for stealing some old wash j boilers. Their parents were given the op ; tion by Judge Winfrey of whipping the I boys or having them sent, to the reform I school. The boys were led to the hall by i the turnkey and given 25 lashes each. Their ! yells could bo heard for two blocks away. I One of the boys was so weak after the ; Hogging that he could hardly walk from the j police station. Masquerade Emporium, ite. 105 W.
