On the contrarv he nwns endorse and
upheld the acts when not compelled bv

when possible all parts not conflicting
with the constitution
It had never been his purpose or ficslre
to bring the legislature In dispute with

BOSTON March ID Thomas W Uff
son owner of the trotter Boralm x stated
this evening that the match between his
horse and The Abbott hid been arranged
practically in accordance with the terms
of his first ofTer
The only difference between Mr Law
son s original proposition and the terms
of the match as now arranged Is that in
stead of Mr Lav son naming the charities
to which the entire gale reeelnts of the
track areo go Mr Scannell Is to name
h tharllv which will receive half of the
r edpts Mr Kawson said
Mr beannell called mo up this after
noon and accepted the terms of mj lirst
i roposition to race for 13300 a side but
he requested that in giving awa to m
wish that the track receipts go for char
itable purposes he receive the privilege
of saing where one half should go
This 1 considered extreme fair and
we urranged the pfdlmlnanes of th
rautch Mr Scannell lias deposited lu
IW to bind the agreement and I for
warded a like amount this afternoon My
share of the receipts is to go to the two
lloston institutions 1 have prevlousi men
tioned and in case lioralma wins the
match they will divide equal Mr Scan
nell s f 2501
If 1 he Abbott should win Mr Scannell
gets my tSOOO but the childrens Institu
tions here still receive one half of the
iato receipts The rye is to be sevm
heats and I have tne naming of the
track The meeting will be held during
XKH YORK March 19 While the
terms named in the above despatch c ill
for 3aO0 a side In stakes It was slid
here tonight that J5oW a side would be
jgreed on before the negotiations are ccn
eluded Among the original stlpulatloi s
named Jiy Mr Iason was one that lie
would guarantee gate receipts of at least
If thnt Is the understanding said
Mr Scannell 1 will agree to raise CI
more If Mr I awsou will accede to ni
terms altout the charlt bwiuests
Mr Scannell added that he still thinks
the receipts paid b the public to he the
nee should go to some chtrity or chari
ties that one half nt least should go to
New Yoik and not II to one cit
The race will be decided probabl at

to Pretoria and the son of Secretar
Hav arrived in Washington vesterda
afternoon upon a leive of absence from
his post He will not return to the Trans
vaal in an official eapacit hovcver anl
Ids resignation will shortlv be announced
if it Ins not nlreadj been forwarded to
the President It was known when Mr
Hay left the Transvail th it he intcndel
resigning his position but as a Consul is
entitled to salar until the expiration of
his leae he was not expected to resign
until tint time
One of the chief causes which led Mr
Hav to return to Washington it Is said
is the great cost of living in Pretoria
since the outbreak of the ISoer vvsr The
salary of the Consul Is but K SCO and It
has been reported that the oung Consul
has been obliged not onl to expend all of
this amount but the greater portion of
his father s salar as Secretar of State
as -veil In order to maintain the dlgnlt
of his office as a representative of the
United States In Pretoria
While this fact has doubtless deterreel
numerous office seekers from applIng for
the appointment there have nevertheless
leen man candidates for the position
The President has leen quite successful
in placating them b the storv of the ex
perience of vounr Mr Hav In expending
his own and his fathers salary in order
to live there Secretar Ha has himself
admitted that this was true
Tli President Is in no haste to name a
new Consul as he anticipates that it will
bring up the whole question of recogniz
ing the sovereignty of Kngland in the
Transvaal by this Government The ap
pointment under the Interpretation which
this Government places upon affairs In
South Afrlci must be accredited to Clreat

bring on a discussion of the Boer war

the Orange Tree btate was annexed to

South African Republic on September 1
3fVH although the assertion is made at
Hie Mute Department that this does not
commit fills Government to a recognition
of the sovcieignt of Great Britain In
South Africa I he first act of such recog

Consul Ha expresses the belief that
the war in South Africa is aporoaching a
termination and that condl Ions will soon

present he states business affairs are at

The Anglican Reformation under the

the Church of the Epiphany Last night
The speaker dwelt at length on the causes

from Latin Into English and was against

He said that when the Spanish armada
was defeated England was Protestant to

reformation was to restore the antique re

artificial additions to the primitive re

began an investigation toda of the death
of Mrs Carrie B Cabus of 352 West
Eighteenth Street who was found dead ii
her Hat last Sunday afternoon her fox

Information given to the police she fell
in an apoplectic lit and the dog which
she was feeding becoming excited seized
her b the throat and held on until forci
bly removed b her mother Mrs Brod
head Mrs Cabus was dead when Dr
Henry M Pisher was called in
Coroners Phsician O I anion went to
the house on Monda night and examined
the bodv To hts surprise li found that
the wounds In the woman s throat were
not caused b teeth but bv the thrust o
a knife Ha Informed Coroner Bausch oi
this today and the went to the home
together and made a further examln ition
Afterward Coroner Bausch said that the
dog had nothing to do with the womans
death which lie said vv is caused b slow
hemorrhages due to three deep wounds In
the neck lnfllrtecl b a knife or some sim
II ir Instrument
I found In my investigation said Coro
ner IJausch that an ordinary knife such
as Is used for peeling potatoes w is lnr
close to the bodv The shape of the
wounds caused Dr O Hanlou and mself
to believe that such a knife had been used
to inflict the wounds To satisfy our
mlrds more futlv that the knife In ques
tion might have been used It was In
serts in the wounds It fitted exact
If th theory that this knife Is the
weapon that caused the wounds Is cor
rect then I Ilrmlv believe that they could
nevei have been self inflicted unless while
in h r lit she was gifted with super
human strength
Mrs Ii in belli Brodhead the dead wo
man s mother said 3he was In the front
room of the flat and her daughter left
her to go and feed the dogs A minute
later she heard a fall and rushing Into
the kitchen found her daughtr llng on
tn lioor with the dog tearing at tier
throat The coroner said that the dog
had not torn the throat Then he ques
tioned Mr Cabus the husband The lat
ter told the coroner where he ipent Sun
da and the coroner asked the rolice to
v erlf his statements
This seems to me a msterious case
said Coroner Bausch tonleht It Is a
case of suicide or homicide ind I will
not be able to determine which until an
investigation has been made
He also directed Dr O Hanlon to make
an autopsv on the bod to find out
whether Mrs Cabus had nn apoplectic
or epileptic stroke prior to her death

ing House Rosenfleld Bros was the next
lowest bidder the others being consldera
blv In excess of them

There- Is considerable feeling among the
Washington bidders because the contract
for the uniforms of the police is contin
ual awarded to out-of-town firms Some
of them declare that the know that the
out-of-town firms nre underbid and et
for some unexplained cause the contract
has been regularly given for several ears
to the Baltimore Arm T P Moran of the
Cher -Moran Companv In speaking of the
m itter esterdavto a Times reporter stat
ed that he krevv for a certainty that his bid
was more than 1 lower than the price bid
b the Baltimore firm for the present car
Therefore he said if the contract for
the ensuing ear is to be the basis of that
for this ear the Baltimore firm was un
derbid Mr Moran declared that the
manner In which the contract is tvarded
is gross unfair to Washington business
Take our firm for example said 3k
Moran We can make these uniforms as
cheap as an body Of course there is
no concern In Washington that can manu
facture them on the ground but that
makes no difference There is the cost of
the cloth as the first Item the trimmings
etc Then re is the cost of making
Now we can do that just as cheaply as the
Baltimore house They do nothing that
we could not do unless It Is to get a dollar
or so more for a uniform than we wuuld
Major S Wester in speaking of the mat
ter said that the committee had acted
wholly within its rights under the law
He said that no injustice had been dono
to an bodv He said that the Baltimore
firm had always been prompt in the deliv
er of the clothing when ordered that It
was of good quality and well made He
declared that the relations between the
department and the Baltimore firm had
alwis been pleasant and so far as he
knew the men were entirely satisfied At
least Major Sjlv ester thought the men on
the cominittee were intelligent enough to
know whit ey were doing
