Jamaican Commissioners
Coming to Washington
On Account of the Action of the Home
Government And the Islands are
Willing to Become a Part of the
United States.
New York, June 9.—A special to the
Tribune from Washington says: Wash
ington officials have an interest in the
coming of the Jamaica reciprocity com
missioners greater than the trade of the
British possessions warrants. There is
a feeling that before they get through
these Jamaican commissioners will bring
to a focus tha whole question of the
future of the British West Indies. They
will act nominally in conjunction with
the British embassy because to do other
wise would not be permitted by the Brit
ish foreign office.
Nevertheless, the Jamaicans are apt to
prove headstrong. Careful statements
are made that their presence has noth
ing to do with that of Sir Cavendish or
with the proposed reciprocity arrange
ments wtih the Barbadoes. Neverthe
less, the idea is prevalent that Mr. Cham
berlain, the colonial minister, is hamper
ing Jamaica and that he wants the other
dependencies in the West Indies to serve
as an offset. Another intimation is given
that if Jamaica does not get along well
witli the United States she will turn to
The alliance between Canada and the
British West Indies has been seriously
discussed in the dominion. Some Mon
treal capitalists have lately interested
themselves in electric lights and street
railway enterprises, and they are said to
j be urging a closer union between the do
; minion and the islands. The notion is too
I whimsical to receive much attention be
I cause neither the fisheries nor the fruit
! trade affords a basis for either political
or commercial union between Canada
and Jamaica.
j Private letters from Jamaica have re
cently supplemented published and offi
cial reports regarding the depth of the
discontent there. Unless the United
States acts more generously than Eng
land has done by granting trade advan
tages without equivalent return it is said
that the demand for annexation will be
openly made. Some of the leading men
of Jamaica have no faith in the present
negotiations, and with the fear of Cuba
and Porto Rico before their eyes they
want the island to seek political union
with the United States. They are not
particular whether they are traded for
one of the Philippines or for some other
spot of land.
Apparently Mr. Chamberlain has most
at stake. He had a carefully matured
scheme by which the trade was to be
taken away from the New England capi
talists, who had invested their money and
developed the fruit raising as well as the
railroads. As the English fleet was to
replace the American fruit fleet which
runs to New York, Boston, Philadelphia
land Baltimore, Sir Henry Blake, the for
I mer governor of the island, presented to
! the London chamber of commerce its op
! portunities. Plans were really made by
1 which English capital wouid drive out
the American capital. They all came to
nothing, and now their failure is ad
| mitted.
j In order to secure a basis of reciprocity
1 with the United States, the colonial legis
lature passed a retaliatory tariff bill.
This was only done after strong protest«
land after the threat of the British for
j eign office to reduce Jamaica to the con
! dition of a crown colony had been with
! draw and Sir Augustus Hemming, the
j present governor general, had given as
! surance that the liberties of the colony
j would not be interfered with. Neverthe
i less, the day after the passage of the
! tariff bill. Sir Augustus Hemming and
Sir Joseph Chamberlain were burned in
effigy. The feeling was that the course
taken would cause irritation among the
officials of the United States instead of
securing the concessions which were
. It can hardly be said that the admin
istration is irritated. There is so little
Jamaican trade that to show resentment
would be absurd. However, now reason
lias been found why the United States
should do more for Jamaica than the
British foreign office is able to do. and
Chamberlain may be highly
j though Mr
1 egteemod personally, he is not likely to
receive much aid in lliS p . lan of Pacifying
.Jamaica through American privileges.
j The American companies which have
handled the Jamaica fruits in the mar
j'|®jkets of tiie United States have not com*
i!oo'p* ained ° f t * ,p They have done a
satisfactory business without interfering
with fruit growers at home. As for
sugar, it is doubtful whether the United
States could restore that industry in
Jamaica by granting to it such recip
rocity as may be ultimately granted to
Cuba. The whole question of Jamaican
reciprocity is a political rather than com
mercial one, and is of more concern in
London than in Washington.
A Bad Wreck.
Kansas City, June 9.—Forty-eight pas
sengers were more or less seriously, three
perhaps fatally, injured by the derail
ment of train No. 4 southbound on the
Kansas City, Pittsburg & Gulf railroad
two miles south of Granview, Mo., at 9:30
last night. The injured were brought to
this city this morning. The seriously
hurt were taken to St. Joseph's hospital
and others to the Savoy hotel. Those
considered fatally Injured are Mrs. C. B.
Chandler, Jaudon, Mo.; A. J. Gorgenson,
news agent, Kansas City; G. I. Crawford,
Drexel, Mo.. Nearly all the injured axe
Missouri people.
The wrecked train left Kansas City
last night at 8 o'clock. Two miles beyond
Granview, a small station 30 miles south
of Kansas City, the train was derailed
by spreading rails, the track having been
damaged by recent severe rains. The
smoker which contained most of the in
jured and the chair car immediately fol
lowing were turned on their side into a j
ditch. The Pullman left the track but |
remained upright. The engine and com
bination baggage and mail car remained
on the track. The accident occurred dur
ing a heavy downpour of rain.
The crew went to work with a will to
rescue the passengers. Women and chil
dren were dragged from the windows of
the chair car and attended to as well as |
possible under the circumstances. Before j
all had been taken out fire started from]
a fire in a stove in the rear end. The j
porter of the car earned great praise by j
his presence of mind in cutting a hole
through the roof, quenching the fire and
rescuing several w* men in imminent
In the smoker which was well filled ]
passengers were compelled to crawl
cautiously the full length to the rear door
to escape. Exit through the broken win
dows was dangerous, the darkness mak
ing it impossible to see a foot ahead. The
scene of the wreck was in the woods and
there was no house near to which the in
jured could be taken.
Wat Against Tuberculosis.
Chicago, June 9.—Public war on tuber-,
culosis was formally declared last night j
when the Chicago veterinary society at a '
meeting decided to take the initiative in ;
the crusade against the scourge. To this j
end the society called a joint meeting of |
the veterinarians and physicians of Cfji- j
cago to meet on Wednesday, June 21,_at|Daly.
a place to be decided upon after it is de- j
termined whether the public shall be ad- ;
mitted. Mayor Harrison, Governor Tan- 1
ner and the aldermen will be invited. The ;
purpose of the meeting will be to form
specific plans for the prevention of the ;
sale of milk in the Chicago market that,
is not known to be free from tuberculosis (
germs. A committee was appointed to
confer with the Chicago Medical society
and other institutions with reference to
the details of the conference. The papers
to be read at the conference are to be
confined to the subject of regulating the
sale of milk with a view of exterminating
the source of tuberculosis milk. The
veterinarians will advocate legislation for
the inspection of the cows that supply
the Chicago market. The plan that stood
most in favor at the meeting was that
suggested by Dr. E. L. Quitman. He
"It is necessary that we induce the city
council to take action for the appoint
ment of at least 60 cow inspectors. The
Inspectors shall then give licenses to such
owners whose cows are found to be non
tuberculosis. The cows shall be tested
every three months. The city shall ap
point as many milk depots for the in
spection of incoming shipments of milk
as are deemed necessary. Every can of
milk that is shipped into the city shall
bear upon it the number of the shipper's
Hotel For Women Only.

10 -year lease has been taken on the 100 - ■

WiU Be No Interference
With the Big Fight
Jeffries' Money is Coming out in Large
Quantities and the Odds on the
Champion Will Be Cut Down
This Evening.
New York, June 9.—It is stated on good
authority today that the Brooklyn poli
ticians have brought their inlluenee to
bear on the police authorities and induc
^ (he laUer to preven t any interference
with the heavy weight contest between
Jeffries and Fitzsimmons which is to de
cide the championship of the world. Hun
dreds of sporting men from all over the
United States have arrived here to Wit
ness the battle and now they feel sure
| the bout will pos'itivclj be a owci o go
j on to a decision.
Betting on the event has taken a lively
j turn. Of course Fitz has the call in to
j day's betting but judging from the man
nt . r ; n which the Jeffries money is be
j ng flashed the present odds of 2 to 1 on
p; tz WO uld be reduced to 100 to 70 or pro
bably 100 to SO before the men strip them
] se i ves tonight. Each man has a large
following and both seem confident.
The Fitz people declares their man can
give away fifty pounds and offset it by
quickness and cleverness backed up by
years of experience. On the other hand
the Jeffries people assert the Californian
has improved wonderfully and has learn
ed so much since he was seen here last
year that he'is bound to wallop the cham
pion. Jeffries never before was trained
to perfection they claim. Before he loft

Army Reorganization.
Washington, Juno 9.—The cabinet,
, , ... ■, —
connection with the possible necessity of j
enlisting a force of volunteers today dis
cussed a. plan for the enlistment of sev
eral skeleton regiments in Manila from
among the volunteers who desire to re
main in service, and tiie subsequent fill
ing out of the regiments with recruits en
iistor in this country. General Otis, ac
cording to the plan, will be given author
ity to select officers for these regiments
from volunteer officers who are to be
mustered out. The plan, which commends
itself to the favor of members of the
cabinet, generally, would form a nucleus
of veteran officers and men seasoned to
the climate and familiar with the work to
be done. Sueli force leavened with vet
erans doubtless wouid be immeasurably
superior to a force of raw recruits, undis
ciplined and unacclimated. The plan
■ was only discussed in connection with
future contingencies, and did not reach
j t]ie 3tage 0 f action. The attorney gen
j ora j announced his opinion that the army
■ rf ,_ orga nization bill fixing the maximum
j strength at 65,000, did not enlist a force
, Qf hogpital CO rps of about 2.600 men, so
| tba ^ tbe enlisted force can bo increased
that number.

Another Indian reservation which may
be opened soon to homeseekers and pros
pectors, is that of the Shoshones, in Wy
oming, says the New York Post. This
was assigned 30 years ago to the Sho
shones and the Bannocks, but because of
a quarrel, the Banoncks were removed,
and their interest in the reservation was
taken by the Arapahoes. It covers an
area nearly 70 miles square, along the
valleys of tiie Big Wind. Little Wind, Big
Horn, and Popo Agle rivers and their
tributaries in Fremont county. Allot
ments of land in severalty to both the
tribes are almost complete, and when
each of the 1,700 Indians has received SO j
acres there will remain over 2 , 000.000 J
acres for settlement. Much of these lands
is suitable only for grazing purposes,
there being an extensive area of moun
tainous country and "bad lands" extend
ing from the northern boundary of the
reservation to the valley of the Big Wind
river, which cuts through the center of
the reservation from northwest to south
east. But along the valleys of tiie Big
and Little Wind and the Popo Agio rivers
Wyoming farming land. The Wyoming j
legislature has memorialized congress to
treat with the Indians for the purchase
of the lands and Senator Warren is en
deavoring to have the needed steps taken.
! The Shoshones and Arapahoe Indians
were in a deplorable condition until about
seven years ago, when they were placed
in charge of an officer of the United
States army, who Instituted radical
changes for their betterment. Since that
time they have been advancing, and are
now thought to be nearly self-support
ing. They are fairly industrious, and
they send their children to school with
out compulsion.
Americans consume 2,000,000 tons of
sugar every year.
