progress all along the line. The trains
b€hring the visiting commanderies are
running, closer to schedule time than was
expected, and theie is little danger that
any commandery will be tied up on a rail
road siding while iis fellows are marching
in the grand parade. Some of the Western
Jrains are reported late, and the New Eng
and specials to-day were not all on time,
but no serious delay is reported.
All the other committees have been
pressed to their utmost capacity by the
accumulation in the closing hours of
preparations of the thousand and one de
tails attending so stupendous a gathering,
and the results achieved appear marvelous.
The city is rapidly filling up with strangers,
the weather promises to be propitious and
the indications all point to the most suc
cessful conclave in the history of the order.
Leading members of the order believe
that Pittsburg will have a walKover in se
curing the next conclave, but say there
will be spirited contests for some of the
officers for the Grand Encampment. The
office of grand recorder is now filled by
appointment, the former recorder having
died recently. There are many candidates
iot that place, among the most prominent
being \V. B. Isaacs Jr., son of the late
grand recorder ; Mr. Thomas of Washing
ton, Mr. Ramsay of Pennsylvania, W. H.
Mayo of Missouri and John A. Geron of
Detroit. It is generally understood that
the grand master, Hugh McCurdy of Mich
igan, will be succeeded by W. La Rue
Thomas of Kentucky. The officers down
to the junior grand warden will probably
be promoted. For the position of junior
grand warden there will be several can
didates. The chances are that W. B.
Melish. imperial potentate of the shrine,
will be elected.
The Kansas delegation of Knights
Templar arrived at noou in fine condition
and were escorted in procession by De
Molay Commandery to their headquarters.
They were received with enthusiasm by the
spectators en route. Commanderies poured
into the city by train and boat all day and
in al^tost every instance the visitors were
met some local or suburban lodge and
escorted to their various headquarters.
Many of the visiting bodies brought their
own band 6or drum corps with them and
the scenes at the stations were those of
gayety and pleasing confusion and bustle.
A large number of commanderies
scheduled to arrive at 9 and 10 o'clock were
from two-to three hours late, but when they
did come they seemed to come as fast as
the tracks could be cleared to make room
for them. South Dakota No. lof Dead

WILL BE GJIASJ) MASTER.
Interesting Career of Sir Knight Warren
La jtue Thomas.
BOSTON, Mass., Aug. 26.— Warren La
Rue Thomas, who will be elected grand
master of the Grand Encampment, Knights
Templar of the United States, was born at
Elizabethtown, Ky., on the 25th of Janu
ary, 1845, his parents being Joseph H. and
Amanda La Rue Thomas. While quite a
youth Sir Knight Thomas' parents moved
to Danville, Ky., where, after receiving his
preparatory education, he attended Center
College, one of Kentucky's best-known in
stitutions of learning.
After graduating he Vas engaged for a
lew years in mercantile pursuits, then
took up the life insurance business, which
has engaged his time and attention for the
past twenty years. No man in the insur
ance business in Kentucky is better known
than Mr. Thomas, who is now one of the
special agents for the Miitual Life of New
York for the States of Kentucky and Ten
Mr. Thomas petitioned the Masons as
soon as he became of age and at once re
ceived the degrees in the lodge, chapter
and council. He became an enthusiastic
member and soon gained admission to the
grand bodies of the State. After tilling
various subordinate positions in both
bodies he was in October, 1880, elected
grand master of the Grand Lodge and
grand high priest of the Grand Chapter,
filling both positions the same year. He
had already occupied the chair of grand
master of the Grand Council, Royal and
In October, 1872, Sir Knight Thomas re
ceived the Knight Templar orders in De
Molay Commandery No. 12, Louisville,
Ky., preparatory to organizine a com
mandery at his home in Danville. In
February, 1873, he assisted in forming
Ryan Commandery No. 17, and was the
first captain-general of that commandery,
afterward holding the office of eminent
commander for two years.
At the meeting of the Grand Command
ery of Kentucky in 1874 he was elected to
the office of grand senior warden, and
after regular promotion was elected grand
commander in May, 1878.
In 1874 Sir Knight Thomas attended the
meeting of the grand encampment in New
Orleans as proxy of the grand commander
of Kentucky, and has been present at every
meeting since that time. At Chicago in
1880 he was elected to the office of grand
junior warden, and at each triennial since
has received a regular promotion, having
been elected deputy grand master at Den
ver in 1892. Sir Knight Thomas is also a
member of the Shrine and of the Ancient
and Accepted Scottish Rite, having been
crowned with the thirty-third degree in
1889. He is a typical Kentuckian, being
6 feet tall and weighing 200 pounds. Sir
Knight Thomas is regarded as one of the
best Masonic jurists in the order, and for
years has served on the jurisprudence com
mittee.in the various grand bodies of his
native State. Being a ready debater and
forcible speaker, with a good presence and
a fine voice, his influence is felt in all
matters of legislation coming before the
Masonic grand bodies. He has always
been a champion of the Masonic Widows'
and Orphans' Home, the pride of all Ken
tucky Masons, and much of the success of
that institution is due to his efforts in
shaping legislation for its benefit.
FORMING A BIG COMBINE.
Window- Glass Manufacturers Holding
an Important Conference.
CLEVELAND, Ohio, Aug. 26.— The Win
dow-glass Manufacturers' Association met
in this city this morning to consider ques
tions concerning the running of their
works and rate of wages. Members of the
association were very reticent in regard to
the objects of the meeting. The Indiana
manufacturers made a report of progress
of their combine and strongly urged co
operation by the manufacturers of the
East, showing the advantages of united
action by the fifty-four factories of the
country. The discussion was lively, the
general sentiment being in favor of com
bination. On the question of wages com
mittees of the manufacturers and work
men have had several conferences. There
still are differences of 2% per cent between
the two sides. It is thought that a com
promise will be reached.

MUCH GUESSING BUT NO BETTING
Those on the Senator's Side Expect
to Get Quite a Nice Little
HARRISBWRG, Pa., Aug. 26.— Whether
Senator Quay or the leaders arrayed
against him "will control the Republican
organization in the State after Wednesday
remains to be determined.
Nothing haa occurred to-day that would
indicate the result of the bitter factional
conflict. Both the Quay and administra
tion leaders are confident of victory, but it
is quite evident that somebody is making
estimates that will not hold water.
Several deflections from the Quay ranks
were reported this afternoon, among these
mentioned in this connection being dele
gates from Erie, Butler, Berks and
Allegheny. Of course the cry of bribery
is raised frequently, but the anti-Quay
people say it is only now becoming
apparent wherein their opponents have
been reckoning without a true knowledge
of the facts. They declare the fight has
been won for the administration and that
no amount of bluffing will change the
On the other hand, Senator Quay's sup
porters assert most positively that the vic
tory is theirs and that under no circum
stances can they be defeated. To those
who have been quietly observing the ma
neuvers there to-day there is a haze shroud
ing the situation which cannot be easily
penetrated. Guessing is indulged in by
everybody, but there is little or no betting.
The figure-men on Senator Quay's side
say he will have from ten to thirty na-
jority, but the administration calculations
reverse these figures in their own favor.
BIG GA.IHERIXG OF JURISTS.
Conference of the Promotion of Legisla
DETROIT. Mich., Aug. 26.— There was a
notable gathering of lawyers and jurists at
Hotel Cadillac this morning to attend a
conference of members of the State com
missions for the promotion of uniformity
of legislation in the TF-aited ['States/
Frederick H. Stimson of Boston called
the meeting to order and S. M. Cutcheon
of this city was made temporary chairman.,
The rollcall showed that commissions from
the States of New York, Massachusetts,
New Jersey, Michigan, Georgia, Illinois,
Connecticut, Mississippi, lowa, South Car
olina, Florida, Maine, Missouri, Colorado,
Vermont and Oklahoma were present. ,:-•
At the afternoon session the report of
the committee on election or officers 1 was*
unanimously adopted, it presented the
name of Hon. S. M. Cutcheon of Michigan
for president, L. D. Brewßter of Connecti
cut for vice-president and F. H. Stimson of >
Massachusetts for secretary.
On the subject of a commercial code for
bills and notes Judge Brewster read a let-,
ter from Lord Chancellor Her«chell of
Great Britain advising the conference to
adopt those in use in Great Britain. Lord
Herschell in this letter said he did not
think there was any difference of opin
ion in England upon the subject. There
was a common agreement that the code
embodying the law of negotiable instru
ments has been of great utility. It has
given rise to few questions requiring deci
sions by the courts, and it has put beyond
controversy not a few that were in doubt.
It has been adopted, one after another, by
all of the self-governing colonies, and the
code is now applicable to the whole of the
British domain. This is of itself no small
testimony in its favor. A similar code for
the United States would, he thought, be a
boon for the commercial community of
Mr. Bergen of New Jersey offered a reso
lution, which was adopted, providing that
the committee on commercial law provide
a draft of a bill for a commercial code of
notes and bills, the bill drafted to be pre
sented at the next meeting of the confer
euce before being submitted to any State

Xegotlations Toward Getting Newfound
land Into the Dominion.
LONDON, Esq., Aug. 26.— 1n the House
of Commons to-day William Johnston,
Conservative member from Belfast, asked
for information as to the position of the
negotiations which had been pursued be
tween Newfoundland and Canada to the
end that the former should be merged into
the Dominion. He also asked whether
the home Government would assist in act
ling the tinancial difficulties of Newfound
Mr. Chamberlain, Secretary of Btatn for
the Colonies, said that the negotiation*
were in abeyance, owing, he beliovixJ, to
disinclination of the Dominion to assume
the debt of Newfoundland. If the MOOnd
part of Mr. Johnston's question meant toe
imposition upon the taxpayers of Great
Britain of any liability for the debt of the
colony of Newfoundland, Mr. Chamber
lain said, he must be answered in the neg
George N. Curzon, Under Foreign Secre
tary, stated that the report that the troops
sent to escort the British Consul to Ku
Cheng bad plundered the Christian mis
sion at that place was not confirmed by the
Consul himself. The Foreign Office, he
said, had not heard anything in regard to
any misconduct on the part of the escort.
The Government, however, upon learning
that the Chinese authorities at Ku Cheng
objected to the presence of the British
Consul at the inquiry into the outrage
had s»nt a protest to the Peking Govern
ment, which nad immediately telegraphed
orders that the Consul should be shown
every possible facility to enable him to
watch the examinations.
VISITED THE EX-CONSUL
Representatives of the United
States Embassy Interviewed
The Imprisoned Man Much Cheered
by the Faot That Me Was Not
PARIS, France, Aug. 27.— Newton B.
Eustis, son of the American Embassador,
and Mr. Alexander, counsel of the em
bassy, returned to-day from Clairvaux,
whither they went to see John L. Waller,
American ex-Consul to Madagascar, who
was sentenced by a court-martial to a long
term of imprisonment on conviction of
having informed the Hovas, with whom
the French are at war, of the movements
of the French. They were allowed to con
verse with Waller practically alone. The
rules of the prison allow no prisoner to
see any visitors except in the presence o
an official. In this case, however, the rule
was but technically observed. The Gov
ernor remained in the next room to that in
which Mr. Eustis and Mr. Alexander saw
Mr. Waller. The door between the rooms
was left open, but practically the conver-
"sation was private.
Waller's health has improved since his
arrival in France as a prisoner from Mada
gascar. He was Buffering upon his arrival
from the effects of the fever that prevails
in Madagascar. He 6eemed to be greatly
cheered by the visit of Eustis and Alex
ander and by their assurance that the
United States Government would inquire
thoroughly into his case. When asked
whether he had any complaint to make
regarding bis treatment \n prison, Waller
krepiiea, "No, but I would like to have a
chair and a table."
This, hdwever, according to the rules
governing prisoners sentenced to solitary
confinement, is not allowed. The Ameri
can embassy will apply to the Foreign
Office for the relaxation of the rules in
Waller's case in* order that he may be sup
plied with a chair and table.
Waller occupies a wainscoted cell that
reserved for political prisoners. He is
aHuwed an invalid's diet; that is, what
ever he requests m the way of meat or
vegetables is furnished him. He furnished
Eustis and Alexander with a full account
of the events which led to his arrest, alsoi
with details of the proceedings of the
court-martial which convicted and sen
tenced him. This statement has been,
transmitted to the State Department at
LONDON, Ekg., Aug. 26.— The Daily
News will say to-morrow that it regards
the difficulty arising from the ridiculously
severe sentence imposed on Mr. Waller as
somewhatigrave, if it is a symptom of the
condition of the French feeling, but the
paper adds that it is of the opinion that it
•jjviU certainly admit of an amicable settle
'raent. Continuing it says: "The French
have constantly shown that they are wil*
ling ta'admit an error of temper when it
can be proved against them. There is a
certain irony in the mischance which has
embroiled them with a power so absolutely
indifferent to the Madagascar question as
the United States. They are morbidly
sensitive regarding treasons, plots and
st»atagems. They must|have gone far out
of their way to fix a quarrel with the
American Consul. Their misfortune is
that these things are done not by states
men, but by soldiers."

complaint of Block Watchman Enright, on
the charge of impersonating a i>riest ana
being a suspicious character, was tried in
the police court this morning. The com

turbance of the peace. On motion of the
prosecuting attorney the reverend gentle
man was discharged, after which the at

severe terms. Father Kelly made the fol

Frank Erne Defeated Jack Skelly of
Brooklyn in Very Short
MASPETH, L. 1., Aug. 26.— The new
Empire Athletic Club of Maspeth, L. 1.,
to-night was formally opened. The
numerous setbacks recently that sparring
has received from the authorities did not
seem to deter the patrons of the manly art,
and long before the time set for the open
ing bout the entrance doors were crowded
with a long line of people.
The attractions provided were of a high
order, the principal bout of the evening
being that between Lavigne, the Saginaw
"Kid," and Jimmy Handler of Newark.
There were about 2000 people present when
the opening bout between Frank Erne of
Buffalo and Jack Skeliy of Brooklyn was
announced. The referee was Tim Hurst,
and Frank Freeman held the watch.
Much interest centered in this Dout, as it
was thought a fair line could be got on
Erne's chances with Dixon. Tbe lads
were down to tight ten rounds at 126
pounds. The bout was a lively one and of
the give-and-take order. When the
seventh round was reached both men were
weak, but fought gamely. Erne got in a
good right hander and then landed twice
on the heart and followed up with his left
on the face. Skeliy sank to the ropes and
rolled over on his side. The round lasted
2 minutes and 40 seconds. Skeliy had to
be carried to his corner.
Then came the star bout of the evening,
between Lavigne and Jimmy Handler.
The bout was twenty rounds at 133 pounds.
Round I— Lavigne landed lightly on the
breast. After some give-and-take work
Handler landed twice with the left. La
vigne got in a right-hand swing on the
head and immediately got in a left-hand
swing on the jaw. Handler landed his
right on the face and missed a vicibus left
Round 2— Lavigne rushed and landed
his left on the neck. Lavigne got in a
terrific right on the body and followed it
up with his left on the jaw. He went for
his man with a Beries of left and rignt
swinE3 and almost had Handler on the
ropes. The round was all in Lavigne's
Round 3 — Lavigne landed his right and
left on the body and rushed bis man to
the ropes. Handler rallied toward the
Round 4— Lavigne sent Handler to the
ropes. He followed it up with his right on
the jaw. Handler appeared weak and
Lavigne landed some heavy body blows,
forcing his man to the ropes. Just as the
gong sounded, Lavigne got in his right
and left on the head.
Round 6— The "Kid" got in his right on
the body, and soon after landed his left.
Handler was very groggy, and Lavigne
got in a heavy body blow which knocked
Handler down. The Newark man got to
his feet, but immediately afterward the
"Kid" landed his right on the jaw and
Handler was knocked down and out.
One minute and seven seconds of the
round had elapsed.

NEW YORK, N. V., Aug. 26.— The sixth

In the third heat of the first race El

WOODLAND, Cal., Aug. 26.— The fea
ture of the day's racing at the fourth an
nual fair of the Fortieth Agricultural Dis
trict Association was the 2:16 class pacing,
all ages. The race was not finished to
day, but Chehalis, the Oregon wonder, lost
the first two Heats to Pathmont, who
made the second heat in 2 :09%, the fastest
time made on the coast this season.
The lirst event was a running race, live
and a quarter furlongs. The entries were
Quarterstaff, Rob Roy, Hyman, Lady Jane
and Nellie G. Lady Jane won in 1 :Q9)i,
with Rob Roy second and Hyman third.
The next event was a 2;30-class trotting
race. Seven heats were trotted before this
race could be decided, and then Bonnie
Ben. a 20 to 1 shot, came under the wire
first. Lady ThornhiJl won the first two
heats, Native State the next two and
Bonnie Ben captured the last three. Then
came all ages for a purse of $600. The en
tries were Vidette. Ketchum, Our Boy,
Brilliantine, Chehalis, Pathmont and Edna
R. The bookmakers had them slated as
follows: Vidette 4 to 1, Ketchum 4 to 1,
Our Boy 10 to 1, Brilliantine 3to 2, Path
mont even money and Edna R 3 to 1.
Chehalis was not in the pools nor on the
After scoring twenty-five times the
horaes were sent away pretty well bunched.
Pathmont led to the quarter, lapped by
Edna R, with Vidette a close third. Path
mont still led at the head of the stretch,
where Chehalis passed Edna R and Vi
dette, and down the stretch Chehalis
lapped Pathmont, but could not pass.
This heat was made in 2:11 and won by
half a length.
In the next heat Vidette led to the quar
ter, with Pathmont second and Chehalis
third. At the half the three leaders were
bunched, but coming into the stretch
Pathraont pulled away and won by half a
length in 2:o9>i. In this heat Ketchum
In the third heat a good start was made
and Pathmont and Chehalis pulled away
from the rest. Interest in this heat was
centered on Pathmont and Chehalis.
Pathmont led into the stretch ; but Che

Diaz's Government Thinks That

CITY OF MEXICO, Mex., Aug.26.-The
Nacional, a newspaper friendly to the Gov
ernment, criticises the attitude of the Lib
eral Government organ on the Cuban
question. The latter paper has taken
ground against the annexation of Cuba to
Mexico, alleging that the negro pop
ulation is an insuperable obstacle.
The general opinion is that it is only nat
ural that a journal closely allied to the
Government, which has friendly relations
with Spain, should openly declare against
annexation. It is probable that a major
ity of the people here, if the case was put
to a vote, would declare in favor of admit
ting Cuba into the Mexican Union.
The Nacional says: It is easily under
stood why the Cubans desire separation
from Spain, even at the cost of falling
under the domination of the Americans,
for the present situation humilates and
deprives them of their rights, while at the
same time it imposes all classes of duties.
But it is not conceivable that they should
prefer to exchange the full political liberty
they would enjoy as Mexicans for the in
evitable political ostracism they would
suffer if allied to the United States. There
is no obstacle in the character of the popu
lation of Cuba to annexation to Mexico. It
would be an easy country to govern.
The Mexican Financier also advocates
the annexation of Cuba in case Spain
relinquishes her hold on the island. It
adds: Thus Mexico would become
imperial in domain, and with the addition
of Central Americ_ would constitute a
barrier to Anglo-Saxon aggression from the

hunter will tell you that the grizzly is a for-
midable foe, perhaps the most to be feared an«
tagonist that the hunter runs up against in hig
A hunter's life is usually supposed to be a
healthy life, but the wear and tear and con*
stant nervous strain to which the genuine old-
time hunters were put often told severely on
their constitutions. As a race they were a fine
set of men— honest and true, fearless and gen-
erous. But nature is nature .in ] all men. Mr.
W. F. Timms of Petaluma, for instance, is a
good example. In his career he hardly knew
what fear was in the mountains with which
he was so familiar, but he was brought to bay
' About fifteen years ago that annoying and
wasting disease, catarrh, made its appearance,
to be followed, of course, by dyspepsia and a
score of other ills. Mr. Timms put on a bold
face to the wretched state into which his
health was getting, until complete nervous
prostration put him, metaphorically speaking,
in the dust. Then he quailed. He fought re-
lief high and low— north, south, east and west
he went and sent, searching for some one or
something to allay his , terrible malady, or, ■
rather, complication of maladies. Not very long
ago he came to San Francisco and dropped into
that grand institution for the cure ofßlldls-
eases, at the corner of Market, Stockton and
Ellis streets-THE HUDSON MEDICAL INSTI-
TUTE— and|lroni the moment of his consulting
the physicians there he felt instinctively that
he no longer had reason to fear the result of his
battle for life. And late events show that in
this he was correct, for he has recently written
the following letter, which speaks for Itself:
HUDSON MEDICAL INSTlTUTE— Gentlemen }
For fifteen years I had been afflicted seriously
with dyspepsia and catarrh and nervous pros-
tration, and to such an extent that life was in-
deed a burden to me. It required no little will
power to resist the temptation of self-destruc-
tion. I was treated by a great many prominent
physicians, but without any benefit until I
went to the HUDSON MEDICAL INSTITUTE
about a month ago, and have taken treatment
since that time, and I am happy to . say that
with one month's treatment 1 have been trans-
formed Into an entirely different man. The
change is wonderful. My catarrh and dys-
pepsia are all gone, also, my nervous system is
in good condition ; the extreme despondency
ana melancholy is removed, and I am exceed-
ingly happy and cheerful, and I can cheerfully
recommend the physicians of the HUDSON
MEDICAL INSTITUTE as skillful, conscien-
tious and honorable physicians. -Yours truly,
W. F. TIMMS.
These are broad, straightforward, manly
statements, which have the ring of honesty
about them, but they are only of the same
tenor as many hundreds of equally satisfactory
utterances by those who have been cured at the
HUDSON MEDICAL INSTITUTE. Amongst
those who have voiced their sentiments of
praise heartily may be mentioned Mr. H. G.
Mulkey of Corvallis, Or., who says: "After tak-
ing your treatment for a short time I gained .
twelve pounds in weight and was wonderfully^,
benefited. • • • lam perfectly well and
shall always speak well of the HUDSON MEDI-
CAL INSTITUTE." j
Mr. Fairchild of Stockton says: "I can't rec- ,
ommend the Institute too highly.for I now feel "
that I am perfectly and permanently restored
to health." \ -fr**rr;r~ic>":r\\ "
Of "The Great Hudyan," their splendid spe-
cific for all nervous troubles, a gentleman writ*
ing from San Luis Obispo, says: ■
- I was permanently cured in three months, \
did not believe at first that Hudyan was a
wonderful remedy. lam now convinced that
it is. _____
And so the good work goes on and on. And
now it is conceded that the HUDSON MEDICAL
INSTITUTE is one ot the greatest establish-
ments in the world for the cure of all curable
diseases. You can be cured there If you can
be cured at all, QUICKLY, QUIETLY, SCIEN-
TIFICALLY AND SAFELY, AS WELL AS PER-
MANENTLY. The Hudson Medical Institute
now occupies the large white building at the)
junction of Stockton, Market and Ellis streets,
San Francisco, Cal.
