At the same time there will remain to

4.236 men. The Ohio and Morgan City,
which are expected to return early in
November, can accommodate 42 officers
and 1.334 men, and the Cassius, now being
fitted up, is expected to provide accom
modations for 600 more. Two or three
more vessels can take the rest and efforts
are being made to secure them.
General Otis cables to the war depart
ment that the cable ship Hooker can be
saved. Arrangements have been made
for taking the ship to the Cavite navy
yard, where she will be put in shape un

In order to provide ample transporta

A Threatened Strike.
i Glen o g ie will n

* ; union has intimated that a demand woqld
he made on the government that all
$1 1 painters employed on transport® be paid
$ . $3 a day and that eight hours constitute
Vÿ 1 a day's work. In addition to this a de
mand that no man who is not qualified to
San Francisco, Sept. 18.—There are
prospects of difficulties ahead for the
transport service. A'threatened strike of
the painters is one source of trouble for
the government, and .it is more than pos
sible) that the boilermakers to be em
ployed on the repair work of the steamer
efuse to go to work on
port tomorrow. The painter» 1
mix paint be employed. There is likely
to be a split on all demands. The gov
ernment takes the stand tliat any man
who can paint should be given an oppor
tunity of going to work. It was said on
, the transport dock that if there should
rf i be a strike on thiF head that requisition
$» , might be made to have soldiers do the
ÿ painting.
The Glenogle Is to be taken in hand to
morrow and her boilers are to be over
hauled, and so great is the demand for
her that the work will have to be carried
on night and day. The boilermakers have
demanded 10 hours' pay for eight hour«
51 work, for the given reason that the work
?ils dirty and much'more complicated"than
2 J that in the shops. For night work, which
constitutes 11 hour® in duration, they
demand 26 hours' pay. There will be a
hitch on this. On the transport Centen
nial a similar demand was made and the
boilermakers carried their point.
Conference Was Success.
Chicago, Sept. 18.—The Times-Herald
says; Save for the work of publishing
the result of the trust conference the du
ties of the Civic Federation are complet
ed. Fifty thousand copies of the report
are to be printed and distributed
thi'oughout the country, so that those
who did not attend the conference may
have the advantage of the views express
ed by leading economists, lawyers, poli
ticians and thinkers from different sec
tions of the United States. This Mr.
Head, the president, deems highly im
portant. Among' the reflections of Mr.
Head on the conference generali • are
the following statements:
"The idea of the Civic Federation was
to have a full discussion of all sides of
the general question of trusts and
trade sombinations. It is a subject
upon which there is endless con
fusion of thought among the people and
we hoped, by giving all sides a fair hear
>ȣ. to clear away much of the fog and
mist and to bring the people nearer to
gether so that they might better judge
of the evils of these large combinations
It there were any, and devise remedies
: tor such evils. In almost every respect I
think the conference has been a decided
j success. Many of the papers offered
i were from careful economic students and
! possessed not only great but permanent
i value. Among these might be mentioned
i the papers contributed by Henry C.
■ Adams, J. W. Jenks, John Graham
I Brooks and Prof. John B. Clark of Col
umbia university. Undoubtedly the two
i speeches which attracted most attention
j were those delivered by W. Bourke Cock
i ran and Wm. Jennings Bryan.
I "As a result of the discussions it seem
J ed to me that the general impression of
those present was that the growth of
trusts and combinations should be jeal
ously watched and guarded and that
there should be a careful supervision of
their operations by the state authorities
and also, possibly, by the general gov
ernment—supervision somewhat similar
to that over national banks would be
most desirable and important—and that
all such corporations should be required
to have carefully kept books of account,
showing all the general operj.'ions in
their business and that the features of
such statistics should be made public
something after the manner in which
the statistics of national banks is made
public. The objects sought through
these suggestions were not only for the
benefit of the general public, who might
be considering an investment, but also
for the benefit of the stockholders who
might thus learn if the managers were
loyal to the interests of the stockhold
"There has ben some talk of there be
ing political capital in the result of the
conference. I do not know that the re
sult of the conference could be construed
to have any political bearing. The
question of business trusts and corpora
tions is not a politcal question. There
are probably just as many democratic
stockholders in these various combina
tions as republican. They have entered
in these various combinations with the
belief that they are advantageous in I he
way of cheapening production and doing
away with the excessive competition
which in periods of depression is often
times fatal to all parties to the competi
"Whatever may be the steps taken to
adopt some remedies or restrictive
measures, which shall retain whatever
there may be of benefit in the trusts
while removing that which is prejudicial
to the national good, in my opinion, the
conference held in Chicago will prove an
historical meeting and its influence as a
source of education and perhaps as a
starting point of some definite develop
ments will be felt for a long time. The
Civic Federation is satisfied—yes. grati
fied—with the entire work of the confer
British Are Gainers.
Vancouver, B. C., Sept. 18.—Lieutenant
Cline of the Canadian militia in the
Yukon, who has just arrived herp, said:
"I ha\e escorted tons upon tons of gold
in the Yukon and know something about
the country. They were mostly Ameri
cans there until recently. Rich English
men. however, are taking their places,
buying up bench and hil claims for $300
and $400 that cost Americans $1,000,
sometimes $2,000 to hold. These English
men will bring in machinery, and, with
the claims they have jewed out of the
poor miners, make fortunes. Most of the
creeks are cleaned out. The big gold
now will be secured by machinery, with
a few isolated exceptions. Americans
have simply opened up the country for
the British. Just before I left there was
a strike on the Pelly, 37 miles from Sel
kirk and 350 miles from Dawson. As
thousands went in all the way front
Dawson and did not conte out again,
they must be making money. I was on
the spot. The stream is very swift and
hard pan 150 feet down. There is plenty
of gold, but the swift current cannot be
overcome. It rushes between huge moun
tains, with almost perpendicular cliffs,
and sweeps out the best protected dig
gings, miners often waking up to see a
fortune just in their grasp swept away
by the flood."
Democrats Organizing.
Chicago, Sept. 18.—The democratic na
tional committeemen are holding a con
ference in this city for the purpose of lis
tening to suggestions about organiza
tion and preliminary campaign work.
The three sub-committees of the national
committee will hold separate meetings
to-day for the purpose of forming perma
nent organizations. Afterward they
will have a Just joint meeting that
will be presided over by Chairman
Johnson of the executive committee.
The latter body will provide for the
opening of permanent headquarters, in
Chicago and place Chairman Johnson* in
charge of It. The ways and means eom
mitee will assume command of the finan
cial part of the work.
Transvaal Situation
mains (be Same.
Has Been Published But it Adds Noth
ing to the News Already Cabled
—Boer President Shows Unyield
ing and Firm Spirit.
London, Sept. 18.—The Transvaal situa
tion remains practically unchanged. The
general apprehension in regard to the
outcome was reflected by the decline in
consols and stocks on the stock exchange,
where, although all stocks continued de
pressed, there was not the slightest ap
proach to .excitement.
The text of President Kruger's reply
was issued by the secretary of state for
the colonies, Mr. Chamberlain, this after
noon, but it adds nothing of importance
to the summary cabled the Associated
Press last evening. The language in
many places is taken to indicate a firm,
unyielding position. The reply, however,
'•If her majesty's government is will
ing, and feels able to make this decision,
a joint commission, as at first proposed
by Chamberlain, would put an end to the
present state of tension. Race hatred
would decrease and die out and the pros
perity and welfare of the South African
republic and the whole of South Africa
would be developed and furthered, and
fraternization between the different na
tionalities would increase."
London, Sept. IS.—The second edition
of the Times contains a dispatch from
Johannesburg which says: "There is, I
am informed, some early coup in con
templation. Quantities of compressed
forage forwarded in the direction of the
Natati border indicate some move on the
part of troops in that quarter. The gov
ernment is buying horses freely today."
The evening papers all indicate the
seriousness of the crisis.
News From Honalulu.
San Francisco, Sept. IS.—The steamer
Coptic from Oriental points via Honolulu
brings the following advices from the
latter port under date of September 11:
Naval Commander Merry, who has
been stationed here for the past three
months and who has given much thought
to the subject of port facilities, hasevolv
ed a plan by which he hopes to have
the deep water area of the harbor doubl
ed. He is of the opinion that the work
of enlarging the harbor woud pay for
itself in the value of reclaimed marsh
lands of which there are several hundred
Colonel Ruhlen has received instruc
tions from Washington ordering him to
condemn for military purposes the crown
lands of Kahauik; and of Leilhua con
taining respectively 1.340 and 1,440 acres.
The transport city of Puebla, on which
there was trouble between white and
negro soldiers on the voyage front San
Francisco to this city, resumed her voy
age to Manila on the 8th instant. No
further trouble occurred and it is be
lieved the matter has blown over.
The transport Leelana with cavalry
horses for Manila arrived to-day, 10 days
from San Francisco.
An Emphatic Protest.
Washington. Sent. 19. — Governor
Lowndes, Senator Wellington, Mayor
Malster of Baltimore and General Felix
Angus called on the president today and
formally protested against the assign
ment of Admiral Schley to the command
of the south Atlantic station on the
ground that it was not commensurate
with the dignity and service he had ren
dered during the Spanish-American war.
The protest was made voluntarily and
without Schley's knowledge. The presi
dent listened attentively to what the
Maryland republican leaders had to say,
but gave no indication of what he would
Charged With Conspiracy.
Palis, Sept. 18.—The senate met as a
high court of justice today at 2 p. m.
for the purpose of trying 22 politicians,
on a charge of conspiracy against the
government. The procurator general
read a long indictment, when the senate
-enlered into secret session to discuss the
indictment and determine questions re
lating to the preliminary inquiry which
is to be ordered. The senate will prob
ably re-assemble at 6 p. m. and announce
its decision. It will then adjourn until
the conclusion of the inquiry, probably
month hence.
Militia Is In Control.
Murphysboro, 111., Sept. IS.—Company
C, Fourth regiment I. N. G., is in full
e&itrol of the situation at Carterville.
No arrests have been made and much
difficulty is anticipated in discovering the
identity of the white men who did the
killing. Hon. O. J. Page and Postmaster
Landon were within 20 feet of the scene
of the riots when they began. They de
Clare than one of the non-union colored
miners fired a shot. They claim it was
Sid Cummins who fired. Cummins was
shot twice through the head and died to
day. The other dead negroes are: Henry
Brainnen, Rev. T. J. Floyd, John Black,
Usted Bradley, all from Jellieo, Tenn.
Sam Browning and James Hayes are
missing and thought to be dead. The
funerals took place this afternoon. Mayor
Zimmerman had the bodies prepared for
Manager Donnelly says the negroes of
Greenville were frenzied when they heard
of tlie killing of their comrades and tried
in every manner to get rifles from the
company's magazine to make an attack
on the town, lie prevented them, but it
Is feared they may yet break from t lie
company's control. Each of the dead
men had heavy revolvers and from 25 to
50 cartridges. When the first shot was
fired men ran from all parts of the town
with Winchesters and revolvers. Each of
the dead negroes was shot in the head.
Market Was Feverish.
New York, Sept. 18.—Orders to sell on
an enormous scale at opening were in
evidence throughout the list. Indus
trials were the severest sufferers, lead
ers dropping 2 to 5 1-2 points. The rail
roads were not such sufferers but in
many cases declines were over a point.
Rock Island lost 3 1-2. There was great
excitement in opening dealings and spec
ulative sentiment was fairly demoralized.
The tightness of the money market was
the motive for selling. Speculat.on con
tinued very wild, but although there was
more activity the offerings were in hun
dred share blocks instead of thousands,
as at the start. The market backed and
filled quickly, the weakest issues vibrat
ing 2 to 3 points on taking of quick profits
by bears. Iron and steel stocks were not
ably weak, dropping from 2 to 4 points.
At noon the bzears were resting on their
oars and the market had steadied some
what but was still feverish.
A heavy covering movement developed
after 1 o'clock and prices advanced for a
time with much vigor. There were no
laggards, everything going up strongly,
but feverishly. Recoveries range from 1
to 4 1-2 the lowest.
Number of Men Needed.
San Francisco, Sept. 18.—Major S. R.
Jones, U. S. A., who has been quarter
master at Manila ever since that city
was captured by the Americans, was a
passenger on the Coptic, which arrived
from Hong Kong and Yokohama via
Honolulu to-day. He will report to
Washington. When Jones left Manila
a forward movement in (he rain and
mud was being made against the insur
gents. He is of the opinion that 50,000
men will have to be kept on the island
W Luzon for 10 years In order to keep
the peace, but that the actual fighting
will not last six weeks when that number
of Americans have bpen landed at Ma
Battleship Kentucky.
Newport News, Va., Sept. 18.—The
builders' trial of the first-class battle
ship Kentucky, sister ship of the Kear
sarge, will take place about the first week

of October. The Kearsarge, which will
return here about September 30, will go
into commission about December 1. The

Maître Labori and Mme. Dreyfus visited
Folkestone, five miles from Dover, Sat
urday, and engaged apartments where
Mme. Dreyfus and her children will dwell
in the event of her husband's pardon.
Labori is reported to have been much
affected by the kindly expressions to
wards himself and Mme. Dreyfus while
at Folkestone.
