DOLE IS IN TROUBLE Minister Willis' Demand of the Hawaiian Government. MUST MAKE REPARATION Justice Requested In the Case of an Imprisoned American. EXCITEMENT AT HONOLULU. Varied Conjectures as to the Prob able Outcome of the Decisive Action Taken. VANCOUVER, B. C, Aug. 10.— The fol lowing Hawaiian advices have been re .ceivetf from Honolulu by the steamer Warrimoo under date of August 1: • On the 21st ult. United States Minister - sent to the Hawaiian Government a reqxiest for reparation to be made to one James Dureel, an American citizen, on ac " count of causeless arrest and imprison ment during the prevalence of martial law lasr. January. To Mr. Willis' letter was appended a copy of Mr. Dureel's affidavit, sworn to before Consul Mills on the 7th of April last. In addition to the allegations set forth in the Minister's letter Dureel claims damages for $25,000 on account of injury done his business, his feelings and his reputation. Mr.. Hatch read the letter of Mr. Willis in the Senate on the 26th and stated that the Government would investigate the matter and send a reply to the communi cation. Marshal Hitchcock is compiling the evidence on record in his office against Dureel, but declined to state the nature of it. He stated, however, that the affidavit contained many false statements about diet and treatment in prison. Dureel was born in Louisiana in 1853, and resided in the United States until September, 1894. He then went to Hono lulu, obtained temporary employment as coak at the Arlington Hotel, and at the time of his arrest was running a cigar, soda-water and fruit store. He is three fourths American Indian and one-fourth negro, and, like the majority of the colored men, became a royalist sympa thizer from the time of his arrival. The Hawaiian Star ooserves: The Government is viewing this action of Mr. Willis with serious apprehension. They fear that it indicates active hostility toward i them on the part of the American administra tion. They fear that it is designed to encour sge ami le*- 3 . the to a series of similar demands from Great Britain, and perhaps other powers, which would be distressing and perhaps ruinous to comply with. They also feel that it indicates in the administration a disposition to take up and urge against them any sore of a claim, however unworthy. The -demand may be altogether without special sig nificance, and the alarm created needless. It is, however, looked upon as quite sig nificant to the royalist paper, the Inde pendent. That paper interprets the de mand as intended to dispel the illusion of American protection, and says it is "The ihin edge of the wedge which is to rend this republic." The general belief, how ever, among friends of the Government is that in every case for which demand for damages may possibly be presented the Goverenment will be able to present a clear case, so that the claim will not be per sisted in. • Hon. William R. Castle, Hawaiian Minis- ter to Washington, and Major James Hay Wodehouse, late British Minister to Ha waii, were among the Warrimoo's passen gers. Previous to Mr. Wodehouse's de parture from Honolulu he requested a parting interview with ex-Queen Liluoka lani. but the request received a positive re fusal. The reason assigned was that Mr. AVodehouse still held an official character of which he could not divest himself, so as to render his visit to the former Queen one . merely of friendship. Minister Wodehouse represented the British Governmental the Hawaiian court for over twenty-five years with great credit. He was strongly opposed to the revolu- tion, and made himself obnoxious to the Provisional Government, who came to re gard the British legation as the chief center of royalist intrigue. Minister Hatch in an interview stated that the leading reason for the refusal of Mr. Wodehouse's request was the one given in reply. He is still in an official position. He is a retiring Minister, and as such still entitled to the courtesies and immunities or that position. He has been commis- to the former Queen. It would be impossible for him now to pay her a fare well visit without its being the subject of public interpretation as an official recog nition of her continued royalty. Mr. Hatch further said that so far from this Government being lacking in courtesy to Mr. Wodehouse it is he who has violated all courtesy in refusing to recognize this Government by paying to it his official farewell. He evidently is taking this course to express his contempt for the rightful authority of this Government. In stead of taking his Jeave of President Dole he proposes to pay his farewell to the ex- Queen, thus emphasizing the recognition of her as the rightful sovereign of Hawaii. That cannot be permitted. Mr. Hatch also stated that so far as this Government had any official knowledge Mr. Wodehouse was still the British Min ister. He has never made known to it his retirement from oflice. It is true that Major Hawes has been recognized as Com missioner and Consul-General, but that does not necessarily terminate Mr. Wode house's tenure of the quite different office of Minister. Btill holding that office he is not a private person, who might be per mitted to visit Mrs. Dominis as a friena. To the Inquiry whether the recent atti tude of Mr and Mrs. Wodehouse in warmly seeking the restoration of the Queen and in encouraging her to expect it did not contribute to affect the decision made, Minister Hatcn admitted that it did to some extent. During the whole period after her dethronement Mr. Wodehouse a was in constant intercourse with her, ad- vising her. Here President Dole, who was present, remarked: "You remember that her diary, which came into our possession, dis The San Francisco Call. closed the fact that he advised her as to choice of a Cabinet upon her restoration." Mr. Hatch also spoke in high terms of the course taken by Major Hawes, the present British Commissioner, who has never visited the ex-Queen nor sought any inter course with her, and whos« dealings with the Government have been entirely courte ous and reasonable. In reply to a question, Mr. Hatch ad mitted that an open letter of Mrs. Wodehouse to the ex-Queen had been re turned to the writer because it was ad dressed to "Her Majesty." The denial of intercourse in the case of the British Min ister is an exception to a very considerable degree of the freedom usually allowed to Mrs. Dominia in seeing her friends. PROSTRATED BY HEAT. Cliicago Residents Suffer From a Severe Torrid Wave. CHICAGO, 111., Aug. 10.-Six persons in this city were prostrated by the heat yesterday, and one died a few minutes after being sunstruck. Though the tempera ture ivaa not excessive for August, the humidity in the atmosphere made the day almost unbearable. The mercury did not reach higher than 91 deg., while on the previous day the thermometer had regis tered 87 deg. "William Monroe, roofer, who was pros trated while at work, is the man who was killed. The injured are: John H. Gass, horse dealer; George Highney, 17 years old; Michael Kane, William Nulty and August Schumakor. The injured will probably all recover. THIS NOT IN THE RING Bob Fitzsimmons Assailed by Jim Corbett and His Crowd. For Several Minutes There Was a Lively Rumpus, but the Police Interfered. PHILADELPHIA, Pa., Ang. 10.— Bob Fitzsimmons and James Corbett came to blows in this city to-night at Green's Hotel. Fitzsimmons had just come down from the Winter Circus, where he had been giving a bag-punching exhibition. He was going over to the eating- bar to get a luncheon with his boxing partner, Thomas Forrest. Corbett, his brother Joseph, W. A. Brady and John McVey, a member of Corbett's company, were standing near the clerk's desk at the end of the bar as Fitz simmons and Forrest passed in. The Corbett party had been drinking, and in a spirit of bravado Corbett attempted to pull Fitzsimmons' nose. The latter backed away, but Corbett followed him up, and finally Fitzsimmons resisted. In a moment there was a general melee. Brady picked up a chair and attempted to brain Fitzsimmons, and the latter threw him to one side. Corbett's brother then took a hand in the game. He struck Fitzsimmor.s in the mouth, cutting his lip. Forrest came to Fitzsimmons' assistance and he and Joseph Corbett were tusseling about the place, knocking chair 9 and tables to the right and left. Meanwhile Corbett was trying to get at Fitzsimmons and then McVey got into the struggling crowd. Seeing the odds against him, Fitzsimmons picked up a heavy water decanter and hurled it at Brady and Joe Corbett. The flying bottle went wide of its mark and striking a heavy iron column was smashed to fragments. As soon as they could recover from their aston ishment the attaches of the place rushed at the struggling crowd of excited pugilists and attempted to separate them. But it was a hard job, and a reserve force of police were called in, and in a few minutes the men were separated. Corbett and his party left the place. Fitzsimmons sat down to have his lunch eon, but. he was too excited to enjoy it, and after partaking of a small portion of it he gave up the attempt and went out for a walk. His clothes were somewhat disarranged and his shirt torn. One of his hands was bleeding, and it looked as it had been cut with a penknife or some other small weapon, although the wound might have been made by a piece of glass from the broken decanter. No arrests were made. VliW OF THE EIIQ3ED: HOB4CKOANYON SOUTH OF JAOK:ONS HOI WHi.BE Tif.

AFTER COLLINS' IDEA Murderer Holmes Used the Material From Novels. THE CHAMBER OF DEATH. It Was Modeled From the Writer's Description in "Armadale." OTHER BOOKS WERE USEFUL. Plans for Substituting Corpses for the Living Not a New Thing by Any Means. CLEVELAND. Ohio, Aug. 10.— A Cleve land man has discovered what he considers proof positive that Holmes, the wholesale murderer, conceived his ideas of his meth ods of committing crime from reading Wilkie Collins' novels. It will be remembered that in the closet in the room of the second floor of Holmes' castle was found a gas pipe running over the floor. This pipe ran to the windowless room where Mrs. Connors is supposed to have been murdered. This pipe's exist ence was a secret. There were no gas jets in the room, only the oDen ends of the pipe sticking out of the wall. The cut-off is believed to be one of Holmes' instru ments of death. Sitting in his room he could turn on the current with ease that would till the dark sleeping apartment be yond the hall and bathroom with deadly gas, asphyxiating the occupants. Readers of Wilkie Collins' "Armadale" will remember the room "No. 4" in the sanitarium of the doctor who figures in the story. The room is described in the story as being without a fireplace and having a door capable of manipulation from the outside by the pressing of a but ton. The doctor, in describing what might be done in the room, is made to say in the story : "Collect gas and convey it into a closed chamber and let Samson himself be in that closed chamber and our stout friend (meaning a liquid for making gas) will kill him in half an hour; will kill him slowly without him seeing anything; with out his smelling anything; without his feeling anything but sleepiness; will kill him and telJ the whole college of surgeons nothing, if they examine him after death, but that he died of apoplexy and conges tion of the lung 3." * On another point readers of Collins will remember that in two of his novels the substitution of a corpse for a living person figured after the manner of the Pietzel- Perry affair. In "Blind Love," Oxbye, the Dane, is buried as Lord Harry Nor land in order that Lord Harry and Dr. Vimpany, his friend, may secure $15,000 in surance money. In "The Woman in White" Anne Cath enck is buried as Lady Percivel Glyde, while Lady Glyde is incarcerated in an in sane asyium in order that her husband may inherit her fortune. The Clevelander who hit upon Collins' parallel is a retired merchant. KIND-HEARTED MEN DROWNED. They Capsize Their Boat in Trying %to Save a Dog. ■ CHICAGO, 111., Aug. 10.— A big New foundland dog belonging to W. A. Alex ander of Highland Park capsized a boat on the lake off that summer resort last night, drowning two men, one of them a prominent business man of Chicago. The men who were drowned were Mosher T. Greene, president of the Chicago Lum bei Company, and Sorn Sornson, a coach man employed by W. A. Alexander of Highland Park. W]?i After they had rowed out 400 feet from shore the dog jumped into the water. The two men leaned over to help the animal into the boat, when it turned over and the two men were drowned. MANGLED BY A TRAIN. An Unfortunate Woman Killed While Tryina to Save Her Child. TOLEDO, Ohio, Aug. 10. — At a crossing of the Cincinnati, Jackson and Mackinaw Railroad in the northern part of the city Jate this afternoon an incoming passenger train going at a high rate of speed ran down a young woman and her three children. The mother was instantly killed and her 3-year-old daughter so badly in jured that she lived but a short time after the accident. The dead: Mrs. Mary Pauley, aged 25, wife of the watchman 01 the Buckeye brewery; Irene Pauley, aged 3 years. Just as the train was upon them the little child stepped over between the rails, and the mother, seeing its danger, went after it, but was too late. The train struck them both just as the mother was leaning over to pick up the baby. Mrs. Pauley was horribly mangled. The little child suffered a fracture of the skull and of the bones of one of its legs. HERMAN MUELLER'S THEFTS. He Stole Seven Thousand Hollars from a liretcing Company. KANSAS CITY, Mo., Aug. 10.— Since the arrest of Herman L. Mueller on July 17 upon a warrant charging him with the embezzlement of $10,000 from the Joseph Schlitz Brewing Company, while acting as their agent in Kansas City, tne books of the company's offices have been under going examination by L. H. Maumain, an expert accountant. The books were found in a hopeless muddle. It i 3 doubtful if any accurate inform: 1 tion as to the total amount of the embezzlement could be learned had not Mueller left other evi dence of his embezzlement in the shape of old checks, stub-books and his private bank-book in his desk when he disap peared to evade arrest. With the assist ance of the latter evidence Auditor Mau scnot has been üble to place the shortage at about $7000. It is likely that the total amount appropriated by Mueller will ex ceed that figure. CAUSED A SMALL RIOT Substitution of Italians for Americans on Grading at Armourdale. Sons of the Sunny South Stoned and Otherwise Injured on the Banks of the Kaw. KANSAS CITY, Mo., Aug. 10.— The substitution of Italian labor for that of American on the job of grading in Ar mourdale was the incentive for a Bmall sized riot to-day. Shortly after the dinner hour twenty- four sons of Sunny Italy were basking in the sunshine pa the banks of the Kaw, near the Fifth-street bridge, close to where the work is in progress, when they were surprised by a dozen or more of the Americans whom they had displaced at cheaper wages. The foreigners were upbraided for work ing for lower wages, and while words were being exchanged some one threw a stone into their ranks. Other missiles came fast and furious, and the Italians scenting dan ger took to their heels. Several were over taken by the pursuing party and were more or less roughly handled. Marcho Lorenzo was cut over the eye, John Leverdino was bruised about his head and Frank Gravatino had his right hand disabled. News of the assault was sent to the Cen tral police station in this city and the James-street station in Kansas City, Kans., and No. 3 station in Armourdale. Details of police were sent out. William Edwards, G. W. Walker and A. H. Godde, living along the banks of the Kaw, and who were known to be among the dis charged employes, were found and locked up to wait a hearing to-morrow. The Italians were badly frightened, and after the attack refused to go to work. Further trouble is expected Monday. RAN THE BLOCKADE Patriots and Arms Sent to Cuba on the Woodall. DODGED THE WARSHIPS. By Burning Hard Coal and Hiding Lights the Vessel Made the Trip. HAD MANY NARROW ESCAPES. After Landing Forces to Fight the Spanish the Vessel Sped to Mexico. BALTIMORE, Md., Aug. 10.— An Amer ican seaman is responsible for the state ment that the American steamer James Woodall, which sailed from this port on July 10, ostensibly for Progreso, Mexico, successfully ran the blockade of the rev enue cutters and warships and landed men and ammunition on Cuban shores in the interest of the Cuban insurgents. Five seamen of the Woodall were discharged in New Orleans a few days ago and arrived in Baltimore to-day. One of the number, who does not wish his name mentioned for obvious reasons, stated to-day that the Woodall landed 153 men and a large quantity of dynamite, rifles, revolvers and ammunition near Havana, Cuba, which were taken aboard off Florida. His state ment is a3 follows: "The steamer burned hard coal on her run down the American coast, making it impossible for a Spanish man-of-war to see her smoke at a distance. At night she burned no lights, the side, head and engine-room lights being extinguished and a shade put over the compass light. The crew were informed that the steamer was to take a lot of plantation laborers from Florida to Mexico, but we did not believe this, as she had taken $14,000 worth of pro visions and 125 tons of hard coal aboard at Baltimore. "It soon developed that two of the crew shipped in Baltimore as common seamen were Generals Roloff and Sinchez of the Cuban revolutionists. We heard that at a meeting of Cubans in New York $25,000 had been raised to purchase and equip the steamer and that Captain Hudson would receive the vessel as a gift, after the expe dition was over, for his services. While near Cuban waters and steaming ahead with no lights risible a Spanish man-of war crossed our bows, going toward an oilier Teasel, whose lights we saw in the distance. Had we been five minutes earlier or had our lights been showing the Spaniard would have caught us. "Instead of going to Progreso the steamer anchored, during the night at Panquery, which is not far from Key West, off the southern extremity of Florida. There was nothing at Panquery but one solitary house. We took aboard from the house in the ship's boats and from a schooner which had sailed from Key West and came alongside the Wood all, 153 men. The ammunition brought aboard amounted to 600 pounds of dyna mite, 600 Remington rifles, 200 sii-cham bered revolveis, 200 cutlasses and 253,000 rounds of ammunition. The men came from New York, having left that city for Florida about the time the Woodall left Baltimore. "The arms and ammunition were rusty, evidently having been thrown overboard by filibusters to escape capture. They were packed in unmarked tins, bags and boxes. The 153 men did not seem to be ordinary soldiers, but Cuban officers and gentlemen of refinement and education. "Captain Hudson seemed afraid to land on Cuban soil and ran his vessel back and forth along the island for ten days, until the water in fifteen barrels gave out. For a fresh supply he touched at a small island off the Mexican coast, and during the day we lay there we were photographed for the information of the Spaniards. Shoitly after we left the island a Spanish warship put in there to search for us. After this Captain Hudson steamed direct for Cuba, and dropped anchor about 11 o'clock at ni^ht off a village forty-five miles from Havana. Disembarking began immedi ately. Every man was armed with a ride, a cutlass and many rounds of ammuni tion. The eteamer'3 three boats, one of which held forty men. carried the 153 men and the ammunition from the steamer to the shore. All had oeen landed by 4A. M., when the Woodall steamed away in the darkness for Progreso. "It was learned aboard the steamer later that the 153 men who had been landed blew up a railroad and captured the village and 400 Spaniards. We had not gone far toward Progreso when the Woodall struck on a coral reef. We were aground about an hour when a Spanish gunboat and a steam launch were seen coming toward us. We crowded on all steam and broke through the reef, damaging our ves sel, but escaped by the aid of darkness and our superior speed. "When we arrived at Progreso we were twice searched by the Mexican authorities, but they found nothing. They also tried Captain Hudson by court-martial for al leged irregularities in entering and leaving the island where the water was obtained. The man who photographed the stoamer there was summoned as a witness, but he could not identify the captain and the lat ter was dismissed. "After the trial the crew wanted to get ashore and leave, not likine their experi ences, and were on the point of mutiny. Captain Hudson uncovered his gray head, and begged them to stand by him and they consented. The vessel left Progreso for New Orleans to have the damages re paired which she sustained on the coral reef, arriving August 1. Coming from a fever port, she lay in quarantine for three days. The crew was discharged at that port and left for Baltimore. At that time Captain Hudson waa ill." MASSO ELECTED PRESIDENT. Details of the Formation of a Republic by Insurgents. NEW YORK, N. V., Aug. 10.— General Quesada to-day received letters via the steamer Niagara by special messenger dated August 1, at Santiago, Cuba, stating that a republic had been formed by elec tion at Carnaguri, a few days before that date. The delegates at the National Re publican Convention at Camaguri which has been proclaimed the temporary capital, were Dr. J. Castolo, R. Portuano, N. Sanchez, A. Aquilero and R. Mandonly. General G. Masso was elected President, and his Cabinet will consist of three men, a Minister of the Interior, a Minister of War and a Minister of Foreign Relations. The general is also in possession of let ters describing the battle of Bayamo. They contain the information that the Spaniards lost in that engagement one general, three chiefs, fourteen officers and 334 privates. The rebels lost in all seventy four men, among them General Alphonse Gonle. The letter is dated July 31, at Montomopolo. It has been learned that General Maceo's field staff consisted of the following men, some of whom constituted the delegates to the convention which elected General Masho President of the republic : Colonel Adolph Parra, chief surgeon ; Dr. J. Cas to!o, confidential secretary; R. Portuano, chief engineer; N. Sanchez and First and Second Adjutant Engineers P. Aquilero and A. Aquilero. The letters also state that the chances of ultimate success are improving daily. They are from the camp of General Maceo direct, and are said to be brought by D. B. Dodge, a special messenger of the revolu tionary leaders in this city. LOCKPORT'S SEVERE LOSS. Fire Destroys Many Buildings in the Thriving Illinois Town. Among the Structures Laid tn Ashes Was the City Hall and Postoffice. LOCKPORT, 111., Aug. 10.— This town of 300 people on the drainage canal, five miles from Joliet, had a narrow escape from destruction by flames to-day. The loss is probably $250,000. Two engines and two hose carts, which were sent by the Chicago fire department at noon in re sponse to the urgent appeal for help, a chemical engine from Joliet and the only engine which Lemont could send to the scene of the conflagration, saved the town from being in ashes to-night. The Lock port fire-fighting apparatus and the water facilities were totally inadequate to sub due the flames when they had gained con siderable headway. Half of the business buildings were con sumed. The City Hall and records, the postofflce and contents, the Chicago and Alton Railroad depoc and freighthouse and Telephone Exchange were among the structures burned. The fire started at 10:30 o'clock In the Phoenix newspaper and printing building owned by Mayor McDonald, who is the editor of the paper. A tinner on the roof dropped a fire-box. At 3:15 the fighting forces had the blaze under control. With the exception of one store a whole block of the best business places on Ninth, Tenth, State and Hamilton streets were burned to the ground— twenty-two buildings in all. The insurance is about two-thirds. Two men were hurt by falling walls. Harry Dosse broke his arm and was badly bruised and Lowell Sillman was struck on the head by bricks. Both of them were firemen. The largest individual loss is in the burning of the schoolhouse, which coat $25,000. The flames spread so fast that the nostoftice employes had to flee for their lives without saving anything. Opposite the fire and separated only by a narrow canal was Norton's fiourmill, employing 700 persons, and one of the main supports of the town. It was not touched. The Taylors to Be Hanged. CARROLLTON, Mo., Aug. 10.-At 12 o'clock to-night Judge Rucker overruled a motion for a new trial in the Taylor case for the murder of the Meeks family and sentenced them to be hanged on Friday, October 4 next. Both condemned men protested their innocence of the crime. For Pacific Coast Telegrams see Pases 3 and 4. PRICE FIVE CENTS. STATED BY FREDERIC Interesting ; Review of Politics of the World. . JOHN BULL AND CHINA. Speculation as to What Will Be the Outcome of Recent Outrages. TROUBLES ON THE CONTINENT; Bulgaria and Macedonia May Yet Cause Much Strife Among the Powers. [Copyrighted, 1895, by the New York Times.] LONDON, Esq., Aug. 10.— In ordinary times the popular English interest in mis sionary endeavor is largely confined to amused observation of the way some twenty rival organizations hate and fight with one another here at home. When something like this Chinese horror occurs it is seen that England is at heart very keen about the whole missionary idea. Even scoffers, who in private say plenty of rnde things about the Zenana mission and kindred devices for expending upon re mote thankless strangers energies and money which might be much better em ployed among England's own heathen at home venture no dissenting note. In the papers now many columns daily are de voted to telegrams, old letters, new inter views, extracts from books, to everything, in fact, at all bearing on the subject, and it is obvious the entire nation is much moved by the tragedy. It is read here with some surprise that the Hongkong and Shanghai colonies are bitterly denouncing the action of the Brit ish Government, and it is taken for granted by all that those excited colonists do not know what they are talking about and that the English admirals and the officials on the Chinese station have re ceived satisfactory instructions long be fore this. Not much is being said as to what England will do, but it has not es caped attention that very likely her action will involve a permanent increase of Brit ish responsibilities in the far East. Although the English are full of the mission spirit, they have, like the mission aries they 3«nd out, a practical side to their sentimental ardor. England has played a rather curious part during the past eventful year in China. People here generally jupposed it was right and achieved what was aimed at, but all the same it is apparent that other non-coin batauts got a lot or spoils out of the thing and England brought away nothing. This» has produced an uneasy sense of unnatur alness and one can note everywhere a latent undefined notion that the massacre at Kucheng, if it had to come, could not have come at a more opportune time for England to intervene and assume an active role at Peking. Both from St. Petersburg and Paris come indications that Germany has backed out of her partnership with Russia and France in the China-Japanese business, and along with these appears the state ment that the Pope has asked the German Emperor to tak« over the duty of protect ing the Catholic missions throughout China. If this latter be true, it will be strange indeed, for France always had to herself the monopoly of this function, and the Vatican, of late in particular, appeared very glad to concede it. So little is known yet of the British in tentions, or of what new aspects the disor der in China may assume, that nobody can have the least idea of what course events may take, but the possibility of interna tional politics getting mixed up with them is worth keeping an eye on. Here in Europe things drift, and though no special peril is visible people continue to be ner vous and apprehensive. The universal tension is exemplified by the flurry of ex citement in the Continental press over the expected appearance of the united British and Spanish squadron at Tangier. Hero the matter receives slight attention, but across the channel it is treated as some thing very disquieting. It is announced in Madrid that this demonstration will be a protest against the recent favoritism shown by the Sultan of Morocco to the French, in allowing them to have a Consul at Fez, which no other nation has been able to se cnre. Apparently some such purpose does underlie the action, but these displays of coercive force are continually recurring off Tangier, and as a rule no one minds them in the least. Now the European atmos phere is so charged witn electricity that people suspect a lightning bolt in every passing shower. It is now said that Prince Ferdinand will return to Bulgaria Monday, and it is naturally supposed that we will then get a more definite idea of what is going to i&ilvl£lßUji£* &eo§ COPPER RIVETED AND SPRING BOTTOM PANTS.
