SENATOR CLARK'S NEW BABY
Iiis Marriage To Miss LaChappcIlc Place Three Years Ago. New York , July 12. —Much surprise was caused here by the announcement, made for the first time last night, that William A. Clark of Montana mar ried, three years ago, Miss Anna LaChapelle, his ward. The culmina tion of a romance that began nine years ago is told in the publication of the following notice: "Clark— La Chapelle— On May 25, 1901, at Marseilles, France, \V. A. Clark to Anna E. La Chapelle, both of Butte, Mont." Tardy of announcement, it is true, for three years have elapsed since the ceremony was performed that made the handsome child of the Western mining fields the bride of the many times millionaire, and with the an nouncement of the marriage came the tidings that it had been blessed by the birth of a girl, now quite two years old. Mr. Clark informed his daughters, Mrs. Clark Culver and Mrs. Lewis Rutherford Morris, of his marriage, shortly after his arrival from Europe, in the steamship Teutonic, June 30. He was then on his way to St. Louis to take part in the convention proceed ings. The daughters were very much surprised when their father made known the secret that he had kept so well for three years. Their surprise was particularly keen, because they never had objected to their father re marrying. Butte , July 12. —The announcement of the marriage of Senator Wm. A. Clark to Miss Anna La Chapelle, in Marseilles, France, on May 25, 1901, is not a surprise to their relatives and close friends in Montana. It has been known for many years that the senator was very fond of his young ward, and his marriage was known to his legal advisers and closest friends both in this country and in Europe. Senator Clark is now in his 68tli year, but his remarkable vitality, elastic step and erect bearing make him appear many years younger. He lias two sous, W. A. Clark, Jr., and Charles W. Clark, aud two daughters, Mrs. Culver aud Mrs. Morris, of New York. The senator is also a grand father by the marriage of his son, W. A., Jr., and one of his daughters. Twenty Killed In TrainlWreck. Chicago , July 13.—Twenty people were killed and about 25 injured to night in a collision on the Chicago & Eastern Illinois railroad at Glenwood, 23 miles south of this city. col lision occurred between a picn^jtrain from this city, which was returning from Momence, 111., and a freight train, into the rear end of which it dashed at a high rate of speed. The picnic train was on the right hand track coming north and the freight was on the left track. A mis placed switch threw the picnic train over on the left track and before the engineer could apply the brakes, it ran at -40 miles an hour into the rear of the freight. The engiue, baggage car and first coach of the picnic train were demolished aud all of the killed aud injured were ou the engine and the two cars. Canned .Meats for Japs. Minneapolis , July 13.—Advices received at Northern Pacific head quarters state that the heaviest order of canned meat to cross the Pacific has been successfully delivered on the Pacific and loaded aboard the steamer Shawmut, for transportation from Puget Sound to Yokohama. The shipment consists of a rush order for 1,000,000 pounds of canned beef for the subsistence department of the Japan ese army. It was handled from Chi cago by the Northern Pacific in special trains of 40 refrigerator cars. Secretary I.oeb Explains. Oyster Bay , L. I.. July 13. —Secre tary Loeb today explained why lie re fused the miners' delegation from Pennsylvania admittance to Sagamore Hill. Mr. Loeb says there is a rule that no oue is to be received by the president unless he has arranged a meeting. This rule has been strictly adhered to aud it will be enforced during the remainder of the time the president is here. Mr. Loeb says the labor leaders came to Oyster Bay and took him un awares, when they demanded to see the president. Had the men announced that they would arrive on Tuesday, Mr. Loeb says an audience might have been arranged, but under the circum stances Mr. Loeb said he could do nothing but refuse them, too. Parker Receives Fnnnj Wire. Esopus , July 13. —Muskogee, In dian Territory, unfurled the first flag of the campaign yesterday if a tele gram from three citizens this morning is rightfully understood. It says: ''Muskogee, in its first election after your nomination was claimed by the republicans but went democratic. The territory is on fire with unconquerable democratic zeal.'" The humor of the message lies iu the fact that none iu the territory can vote for president. Practically ail the intervening time until election will be spent by the can didate at Esopus. There will be no swing around the circle, but toward the last he will visit a few of the larg est cities where the fight is hottest. ( !rover Cleveland will deliver one ad dress, but W. J. Bryan's intentions here are unknown. To date no con gratulations have come from the No braskan. Tin: MEAT PACKERS' STRIKE. Efforts lleing Made to Settle the Trouble 15y Arbitration. Chicago , July 13.—Arbitration of the grievances which precipitated the general strike in the meat packing houses in various parts of the country appears tonight to be in sight and a conference between employers and strikers will be held tomorrow morn ing. The initial step toward settle ment of the controversy by mediation was taken late this evening by the state board of arbitration. When the members of the board reached Chicago they at once went into conference with Michael J. Donnelly, the leader of the strike, and listened to the story of his side of the trouble. The members of the board then in terviewed the representatives of the packers and their side of the difficulty was heard. As a result of these two conferences, Mr. Donnelly sent a com munication to the packers in which it was stated that the unions were will ing to accept a settlement through i board of arbitration. President Donnelly of the Butchers union, said that all that is being asked of the packers is that IS? cents an hour be the minimum for laborers, and iu view of the fact that the average working time in nearly all depart meuts is less than 40 hours per week it could readily be seen that the union's demands are reasonable. All independent companies, Presi dent Donnelly says, are paying a much higher rate than the union asks the trust companies to pay. May Cause Meat l'aminé. New York , July 13.—Thirty-live hundred butchers aud other employes joined the strike this morning. The packers called on the police for pro tection, which was granted. Ketailers lost no time in boosting the prices two cents a pound. Boston , July 13.—The meat supply was short before the strike was called according to the exporters and whole sale prices were advanced le a pound aud will be advanced again in the next few days. St . LociS, July 13.—The retail prices of meats here advanced slight ly, but there was no tendency toward a big boost. Pork loins, which sold, at 11 cents in the morning, were later quoted at 12^ cents at and about the union market. Choice beef cuts also went up from two to three cents a pound and porterhouse steak from 25 to 30 cents iu some of the shops. There was no meat shortage bordering on scarcity anywhere. Rain Injures Wheat Crop. Minneapolis , July 13.— Today's rain covered the entire Northwest. Conditions are such as greatly to dis turb the grain trade. The downfall was especially heavy in the Red river valley, where the ground is already soaked. President J. J. Hill of the Great Northern rati way said today that in his opinion the United States would not raise more than 600,000.000 bushels of wheat with the best pos sible conditions from now on. Strangled By False Teeth. N ew York , July 13.—Frightened by the narrow escape of her son by being run down by a heavy truck, Mrs. Mary Murphy, wife of a Brook lyn merchant, has been strangled to neath by her false teeth. The woman went to Coney Island for an outing. In his hurry to cross the street, her son dashed in front of a team and nar rowly escaped. His mother attempted to scream and fell strangling before a crowd of pleasure seekers. She died in a few miuutus, and the doctors found the cause in a set of false teeth half way down her throat. Fourth of July Victims. Chicago , July 13.—Tile Tribune says today: Five more deaths were added yesterday to Chicago's Fourth of July victims. Four died in agony from lockjaw, while the fifth suc cumbed to wounds caused by the ex plosion of a toy cannon. From other cities in the United States two deaths from injuries and five from tetanus are reported, making a total of 84 lives lost in the patriotic celebration. Rumor Lucks Confirmation. London , July 13. —The Morning Post's Shanghai correspondent says that the .J apanese casualties by land mines at Port Arthur Sunday ntght are reported to have been 28,000. but none of the many special war dis patches mentions a Japanese disaster at Port Arthur. St. Petersburg , July 13. —The gen eral staff has received no information regarding the reported "attack ou posi tion near Port Arthur and the loss of oO.OOu Japanese, killed or wounded by Russian mines. WASHINGTON LETTER a of [Special Correspondence.! George R. Carter, who succeeded San ford B. Dole as governor of Hawaii, lias been i;j eon;-u nation with the presi dent on a number of matters connected with the administration of territorial affairs in the islands. He will not re turn to Hawaii, for some time, as there are a number of judgeship appointments in Hawaii to be settled. The terms of seven judges have expired, and their reappointments must be determined up on. Porto Rico's Gorisnior. Beekinan Winthrop, who is to sue eeed William II. Hunt as governor of Forto Itico, in preparing for his duties lias had several interviews with the president concerning affairs in the is land. The change in the governorship will occur early in July, and Governor Hunt will then come on here and take the oath of office as judge of the Unit ed States district court of Montana, to which place lie was appointed a good while ago. Senator Coekrell'B Injury. Senator F. M. Cockrell of Missouri, who was run down by a bicycle a few days ago, sustained many bruises and had a small bone broken in his right shoulder which will confine him to the house for some time. The senator was on his way home from the market, which he visits daily, when the acci dent occurred. For nearly thirty years Francis Marion Cockrell has been in the senate. He is now in his seventieth year. When lie first entered public life at Washington lie gained not a little fame by making daily visits to a market, from which he always carried away an armload of vegetables. When his friends chaffed him about this habit he was wont to tell them that the mar ket was the only thing about Washing ton that reminded him of home. For many years his daily luncheon in the senate chamber has consisted of two large red cheeked apples. The Original Roosevelt Clnb. President lîoosevelt has received two gifts which lie prizes highly. They wore presented to liitn by Dan A. Brown of Chicago, president of the Original Roosevelt Club of Illinois, the organization of which was effected Sept. 5, 1901. It is said to have been the first club organized for the cam paign in 1004 in the United States. One present was the gavel, bound with sil ver and suitably engraved, presented to Mr. Brown on the organization of the club. The other was a campaign pin of solid gold, the design being in tended to represent a pair of nose glasses such as the president wears, with an embossed likeness of Mr. Roosevelt in one lens and room for a similar likeness of the vice presidential candidate in the other. Free Ice For the Siek. Commissioner Macfarland has an nounced that the philanthropic Wash ington gentleman who last year fur nished free ice for the sick and the babies of the needy has renewed his offer to furnish ice for the poor again this summer. This generous Washing ton citizen has authorized Mr. Macfar land to make all the arrangements for furnishing the ice and to draw upon him for the money needed, only stipu lating that his name shall be withheld from the public. Stntue of Frederick the Great. Major John S. Sewell, corps of engi neers, who is in charge of the con struction work at Washington bar racks, has been instructed to erect a suitable pedestal on the terrace in front of the new Army War college for the statue of Frederick the Great present ed to the United States by the emperor of Germany. Congress has appropriat ed $8,000 for the pedestal and the ex penses connected with the erection of the statue. It has been arranged that the statue shall lie dedicated with ap propriate ceremonies Nov. 19 next. Polo unie Shad. The present season has not been a profitable one with the fishermen down the Potomac, they çny, because of the scarcity of the fish. The catch of shad lias not been as large as usual. The to tal catch tLis season as shown by the reports of Gwynne Harris, inspector of marine products, will aggregate about j.")7,.S00, while last year the catch amounted to 184,444. Hot Weather nn«l Uniforms. At the beginning of the first hot weather there was an agitation in the war department for a modification of the order relative to uniforms. Officers desired to appear in the gauzy seer sucker or the Happing alpaca or the polka dot cotton jacket or anything else that w r as cool and that did not re quire the warm military clothes. The general staff set to work upon the mat ter with a view of obtaining some sort of uniform which might meet: all re quirements of hot weather and still be military. The outcome will probably be that every officer will wear what he pleases during the hot weather. Vacation Time. When hot weather comes, the fancy of the department clerk lightly turns to thoughts of vacation. The annual exodus of the department clerks from Washington has already begun. June, July. August and September are the dull months in department work, only a part of the clerical force being en duty. There are not so many who choose to go away in June, but the number Is great enough, the chief< of divisions say. July. August anl S -p tember are chosen bv a luajuritv. and August is the favorite of thus.' th! more clerks taking their v;irati'i;i this month than any othoy. CAUL SCHOl'i ELI Young women may avoid much sickness and pain, says Miss Alma Pratt, if they will only have faith in the use of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. Judging from the letters she fs receiving from so many young girls, Mrs. Pinkham believes that our girls are often pushed altogether too near the limit of their endurance now adays in our public schools and semin aries. Nothing is allowed to interfere with studies, the girl must be pushed to the front and graduated with honor ; often physical collapse follows, and it takes years to recover the lost vitality,— often it is never recovered. Miss Pratt says, — "Dear Mrs. Pinkham : — I feel it my duty to tell all young women how much Lydia E. Pinkham's won derful Vegetable Compound has done for me. I was completely run down, unable to attend school, and did not care for anj T kind of society, but now I feel like a new person, and have gained seven pounds of llesh in three months. " I recommend it to all young women who suffer from female weak ness."— Miss Alma Pratt , Holly, Mich. — $5000 forfeit if original of about letter proving genuineness cannot be produced. iMotico jfcf Final Proof.
