An official cable dispatch to the Navy Department from San Juan, Porto Rico, cays that while the casket containing the remains of Naval Cadet William H. Boardman was being taken from the shore in a. small boat to the provision ebip Supply Xor transportation to the United States the boat was capsized and the casket went to the bottom. Owing to the character of ihe Ude at that place and the weight of the casket, which is of metal, it Is feared that the remains of young Boardman cannot be recovered.' Every effort -will be made, however, to secure them. Cadet Boardman was assigned to the monitor Amphltrite and went in that ves sel to Cape San Juan, when a naval dem onstration was made by the United States forces there shortly after Major General Miles had landed at Guanica. In enter ing the lighthouse at Cape San Juan Ca det Boardman dropped his revolver, which exploded,-the bullet entering the young man's groin, and he died two days later.

In reply to a query from the adjutant general as to the reports that the First New York Regiment, at Honolulu, is without food. Gen. Merriam telegraphed from San Francisco yesterday, as fol lows: "Referring to your telegram, I investi gated complaint of First New York Regi ment of insufficiency of food while at Honolulu, September 1L About 5 per cent of the regiment stated they could eat more than was given them. My investi gation of kitchen failed to discover waste or bad management. All otllcers seemeJ to be strongly Interested to discover and correct faults. "Fresh beef was found be low standard, as is usual in hot climates. I advised the issue of a larger proportion of beef instead of salt pork. It is notable that the engineer battalions, regular and volunteer detachment, 'similarly situated to the New York regiment, were entirely free from complaint. Health and sani tary condition of all troops at Honolulu very good. THE EmPUrOS APPROACH. AKruiimldo AKentx Mny Reach "Washington Today. "When Fillpo Angoncillo and Jose Lo pez, representatives of Agulnaldo, the Philippine Insurgent chief, reach "Wash ington they may be disappointed as to the reception they receive. It is not the intention of the American Government, according to the statement of those in authority about the Army and Navy Building, to extend to them any particular recognition. Certain, it Is said that the approach of these repre sentatives is not creating any stir among Government officials. The supposition is that they will call on President McKInley and urge that the in surgents be allowed to establish their own government. The time of the arrival of these repre sentatives is not known. It is thought that after having completed their busi ness here, they will proceed to Paris to be .present at the sessions of the Peace Commissioners. TELEGRAPH AND CABLE TOLLS. The War Depnrtment CImreil AVI til Several Thousand Dollars Daily. The "War Department has taken steps to cut down the enormous amount of the telegraph and cable tolls Incident to the conduct of the war and the negotiations for peace. The amount of these tools Is larger than ever before in the history of the Government, owing to the necessity of using cable lines, the charges for the use of which are many times those made for the use of land telegraph lines. The daily telegraph and cable tolls charged to the Government amount to several thou sand dollars. By command of Maj. Gen. Miles an or der has been issued from the War De partment directing that telegraph and ca ble messages be abbreviated In form as much as possible, and that no messages be sent by wire except on the most press ing business of an official nature.

Loom's, American minister to Venezuela, called upon the President last night in reference to the aDDroachine meeting at Paris of the British-Venezuelan court of arbitration.

Owing to press of business In the Su preme Court in January Chief Justice Fuller will not be able to attend.

JOHN ML TOUCEY DEAD. Wan Konnerlj- Genernl MunuKTer at the New York Central Railroad. New York. Sept, 24. John M. Toucey. formerly general manager of the New York Central, died last night at his home at Garrlson's-on-the-Hudson, after an 1.1 ness of several months' duration. For over a year Mr. Toucey has been HI, but it was not until after his retire ment from the general managership of the Central, last May, that his condition became serious. Despite the efforts of his physicians he 1 rapidly grew worse. Yesterday he began i to sink rapidly. He passed away quietly at 10:30 o'clock. The announcement or Mr. Toucey's death caused the greatest regret among the employes of the New York Central Railroad, to most of whom the former general manager was well known. He was one of the Oldest railroad men in the State, and for nearly forty-four years he had been in the continuous serv ice of the Central. The veteran manager was more than seventy years old. He -was entirely a self-made man. He "was born in Newton, Conn., in 1S2S, and began his railroad ca reer as station agent of the Naugatuck Railroad. IT WAS MURDER. Ohio Detective Clenrlnpr Up CliIlII eothe'jt Myterj. Chillicothe, Ohio, Sept. 21. Detective Smith, who has been working on the mystery of the unknown man found hanging to a tree, asserts that he has ab solute proof that the man was murdered, and then hung up to divert suspicion. He asserts, furthermore, that he is en the trade of the murderers, and will soon have them arrested. He states that the man belonged to a prominent family, and that he was killed for a purpose. The bod,y was undoubted ly that of a man of birth and breeding. The discovery has created a profound sensation here, and wil be closely follow ed up. BRINGS A NEW DIVORCE SUIT. John A. B'nrncH Questions Action In Oklahoma Courts. Cleveland, Ohio, Sept. 24. Mr. John A. Barnes, of this city, whose wife left him some years ago, for ex-Mayor Magowan, of Trenton, N. J., has sued for divorce in this city. Barnes asks that he be granted an absolute divorce from his for mer wife on the grounds of desertion. It Is considered In some States that Oklahoma divorces are not the genuine article and because there Is some doubt as to the recognition of separations granted in that territory, Mr. Barnes feels that he desires, a formal divorce in Ohio. TAKING A REST IN LONDOJf- America'M Commiissioners Proceed to PjirlM on Monday. London, Sept. 24. The United States Peace Commissioners arrived at the Ho tel Cecil today. They will spend Sunday quietly at the hotel and proceed to Paris Monday. There is absolutely no infor mation obtainable regarding their inten tions or further proceedings. Their reticence in regard to their mis sion is generally respected. In their speeches at the concert on board the Campania Thursday night they made no allusion to their mission. All of the party are in good health. Examination of Perspiration. Tells "What You Have Been Doinir. A food expert at Battle Creek, Mich., connected with the Postum Cereal Co., Lim.. has produced a food especially in tended for rebuilding the brain. It is a well-known fact among physicians that examination of perspiration and urine will tell whether the individual has been act ively using the brain or not. Brain work exhausts the phosphates, which appear In the excreta above men tioned. Administration of inorganic phosphorus or phosphates does not readi ly supply the waste, for nature demands that phosphates be made up and blen3ei in food hlch she furnishes. Advantage has been taken of this knowledge and a scientific selection of part of the grain has been made, and these have be'en put through mechanical processes parallel to the processes through which food is pass ed in its management by the human di gestive organs. Therefore, the new food is not only ready to serve without cooking, but it has passed through the process where the starches have been changed to grape sugar, and that with the proteids, organic phosphates, etc.. are at once ready to be quickly absorbed and turned to use in vitalizing and nourishing the parts of the body like brain, solar plexus, and the delicate nerve centers. The new food has been given the name of Grape-Nuts, and far from being a "Crank's Food," "Invalid's Food," or anything of that sort, it Is a crisp, sweet novelty, charming to tho athlete, brain worker, epicure, or in" .illC Grape-Nuts can be had In packages of grocers, and a trial dish for breakfast will bo found a pleasant experience. JAELPROSPECTS ABROAD London Tiewa of tlie Situation in Franca and London. ESTEMAZ Y AM) HIS SHAME He Huh Disposed of H1h Secret to an EnfrIi"h?PuMliHher IIIh Confession to Appear Shortly Recognition ol KuhhIu'm Victory In the Pelcln Pulnce' Revolution. . London, Sept. 2L Friends of France here and they are very many and Influx ential watch each day's events in Paris with grave anxiety. Anything jnay hap pen there In the nature of a military coup d'etat, with a man like Gen. Zurllnden. posing as Boulanger posed, and posing with the apparent sympathy ' of "military circles. Happily, the Due d'Orleans -has made himself ridiculous with his manifesto, and no one looks seriously to the Royal ists for mischief.' - - Meanwhile, London has a Dreyfus sen sation of its own.'Esterhazy is here pre paring to startle us with his much-vaunted disclosures. Originally he placed him self In the hands of a syndicate, of whom Mr. Finch-Hatton Is pne. The syndicate first offered Esterhazy's secret to Sir Ed ward Lawson, of the Telegraph, for, it is said, $5,000. Sir Edward, being .himself a Jew, felt that his purchase of the secret would be likely to create a misconception harmful to Dreyfus. Therefore, he hand ed the syndicate on. to Mrs. Beere, of tho Sunday Observer. Esterhazy's Syndicate Dissolved. The syndicate managed the affair In such a way that Mrs. Beere broke off ne gotiations, and the syndicate quarreling among themselves, have dissolved. Esterhazy now has entered "Into an ar rangement with a London publisher, and is at the present moment turning his se cret Into book form for publication In five weeks' time, giving' the full,- true, and particular account of the reason why the Dreyfus dossier may not bo made public, and telling who were the real Instigators of the conspiracy against .Dreyfus. From all this ferment here and in Pa ris one fact "Seems To London observers to stand outv-clear.- Be the -secret what it may, be Dreyfus guilty or innocent, the present French ministry has embarked upon a policy in regard to revision which seems bound to "bring them into collision with the army as represented by Gen. Zurllnden. The latter seems, moreover, prepared to go all lengths, as shown by the incident of Wednesday, before the correctional tribunal, and in the transfer of Col, PIcquart from a civil to a military prison. History suggests what too often happens in France when the governing power gets on one side of the fence and the army on the other. Mnreliand'N Locution in Douht. England, on her part, has an uncom fortable feeling that she never know3 what pranks a French ministry may In dulge in abroad to divert the attention of their public from such esclandres as this Dreyfus affair. Nobody yet knows whether Capt. Marchand Is or Is not at Fashoda. African authorities here are inclined to the belief that he Is not, and that the white men who fired on the Khalifa's boat are Belgians. But If it should prove to be Marchand, the French newspaper talk of this week about French sacrifices in Africa In the cause of civilization Indicates what temptation a weak ministry' might be under to make trouble with England. .Gen. Kitchener, however, has shown hlmselr as tactful a general as England ever had. This week has made the Chinese puz zle more puzzling than ever. Just when the ministerialists were congratulating themselves upon the English diplomatic successes at Pekin following Mr. Bal four's firmer hand at the foreign office, comes the news of a palace revolution, which upsets the timid young emperor and places his pro-Russian stepmother, the empress dowager, in his stead, with the probable restoration of LI Hung Chang to power, with redoubled enmity against England for securing his over throw. "What must now be clear even to Lord Salisbury is that the T3ung II Tamen is a body utterly incapable or independent ne gotiation. Whatever is to be done in de fense of British interests must be done at St. Petersburg, not at Pekin, and that implies more than the present informal acceptance of the principle of spheres of Influence, with Russia in Manchuria and England in the Yangtse Valley. The "Open Door" Abandoned. But there are still Manchuria conces sion hunters hammering at the doors of the foreign office, and though Lord Salis bury and his cabinet have been driven practically to abandon tho policy of the "open door" and equal trade opportuni ties for all In every part of China, these clamorous British concessionaires make the ministry timid of a -frank and open avowal of the fact. Such an avowal, coupled with direct pressure at St. Petersburg, such as Mr. Balfour applied just before the Czar's peace manifesto changed the whole as pect of affairs, would, experts, say, give England and America all they have a right to expect within the British sphere in China. There is a widespread disposition today to make glad over the change In Anglo American relations, betokened by tlie Chile-Argentina arbitration agreement. What a change, say some7-"miistT"have come over the American political atmos phere since ex-Secretary Olney's famous war message, to permit the welcome now given to the suggestion that Queen Vic toria arbitrate between South American republics! Upon such foundation the St. James Gazette, the faithful ministerial organ, this afternoon builds a, dream of great possibilities in China. It cordially echoes what the Vienna correspondent of the Standard says today of a possible joint move of Great Britain, America, and Japan for a solution of the Chinese question. "With Americans in the Phil ippines," says the Standard correspond ent, "and the superiority of England, Ja pan, and the United States over any other possible combination clearly established, the British lion would not hesitate to strike. This would bring order in Asia just as the fall of Omdurman has estab lished order along the Nile." "Would that it were true," adds the St. James Gazette. OBITUARY NOTE. Col. Sam Houston. New Orleans, Sept. 21. Col. Sam Hous ton died here today, aged seventy-four.

Tho Lumbardo home is facing the ca nal at the point where It Is Supposed the murdered girl was thrown into tho canal. The police refuse to reveal tho evidence they claim to have against the couple.
