UNITED STATES IS
QUITE AFFLUENT
Country, Though an Infant
Among Nations, Breaks
All Records for Riches
KEEPS PILING IT UP
SPECIAL DISPATCH TO THE CALL.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 14. — "The United
ttatps is the wealthiest nation in the
*vorld," said a close friend of President
Jlooscvelt today, who had Just gone
over a remarkable official report •which
is soon to be made public He added:
In a brief K|>an of young life tbls Infant na
ti«m hsu brokcu all rwords rfiEting to the •>;
«-timulati<m of richii>. Wo nre tx-piauing to tliink
In biihuus i:i«it«-»«I of millions. Take U any way
v.»u llkf. our affluence outstrips anytliing crer
. .... v • before. \u25a0*
Our country La* more actual money, more gold,
n .!.-:\u25a0•! volume of exports, greater banking fa
••illtie*. richer ferms, more productire mines,
more railroads, more internal commerce, more
millionaires, more well-to-do tradi-smcn.. more
-Independent farmers, more Uifhly paid laborcn,
und a freater distribution of luxuries than any
otlier he* enjoyed slurp time began.
To prove all this, some facts are gleaned at
random from tbe reports Fathered by the State
etrtlstlcal department of the treasury.
One day last October Uncle (Sam had cathcred
Into bis money storehouse ln Washington the
prpatest amount of gold etrr collected ln one
place in tbe hlstorr of the world — gold represent
ing 4S7I.MM so. This was Indeed the hlsh wa
ter mark. There was In one little room more
money than was. in circulutien ln all Great
Britain.
The larpest receipt *Ter firm and tfc« greatest
money trust ever undertaken was when the
prttwnt Treasurer of the United States. Charles
11. Treat, went into office. He receipted to El
lis U. lioberts, retiring Treasurer, for oil money
and «e<rurities in the raults of the treasury, a
total of J1.259.595.2T8. It required from July 1
10 September 5 to count the money, and at the
rompletlon of the task the accounts balanced to
• fraction.
Tbe costliest porernmenta] «staliiishm«»nt !n
the world Is the British nary, upon which $1,
f>OO.OOO.UOO bas been expended within the last
ten years. Vet three indlrldual Americans —
ItorStefeller. Carnegie and Clnrk — could have paid
the whole bill and have pocket money left.
The. United State* Ik tpcndinjr about $100,000.
000 a year on its navy, and the country is new
at this kind of expenditure. That it i« not in-
Testinp more than it can afford Is Fhown by the
fact that tue displny-loviiiK women of the I nltfrt
Ktates sprat $100,000,000 for diamonds purchased
in fowlcn landc during the last two years. In
fact, we are f>u rich the sales of produce and
manufactured articles we are sending abroad
each year are oqual to a sum sufficient to sup
port all the navies In the world.
Fully one-half of the railway mlleace of the
world if in tli*» United States, and we possess
one-third of all the world's hankiug powor.
Actual measurf-m^nt of the monetary strength
shows we are really in a class by onrse^ves, and
in many respects actually assuming the propor
tions of a worthy rival of all the remainder *of
Crrlstraflorn combined.
To «ay that the total raluatinn of the wealth
*>f the United States Is 5107.000.000.000 is not
understfndablp. as a hundred billion dollars is
snch m pile of money that the mind 6!mply can
oot gTacp It on the Instant.
SayS REMEDY IS
MORE TRACKAGE
m _____
ST. PAUL. Jan. 14. — Governor John
*on received a long letter from J. J.
Hill, president of the Great Northern
Railroad Company, today, in which the
magnate deals exhaustively with the
various phases of the railroad problem.
Hill sets out what ln his opinion is
responsible for the existing situation
and what should be done to remedy It.
The Western country has grown so
fast that the railroads have been un
able to keep pace with It, Hill says, and
he believes that the building of addl- '
tfor.al trackage is the best solution of
the problem-
The Great Northern president de
clares that it will require a permanent
investment of $13,000,000 a year for five
years to provide the railroads of the
country with means to handle prop
erly th* business already in sight. !
This Is net allowing for future growth. ,

FRENCH PRELATES
DISCUSS LAWS
PARIS, Jan. 14. — Having decided ln
advance to adhere to the recent papal
encyclical the work of the French
episcopate which meets tomorrow will
be largely confined to discussing the
practical matter involved ln the con
demnation of the amended church and
state separation law and the benefit
which might b*» obtained from the
public meetings law of 1901. The ques
tion of the church's resources will be
uppermost and the Cardinals and some
of the Bishops, who were again in ses
sion today, have virtually resolved to
recommend the establishment of a cen
tral fund ln all the dioceses. It is
doubtful whothrr the legal plenary as-
Fombly will approve the reorganization
of the seminaries as superior theolog
ical schools in accordance with the law
of ISTT.. under which a number of them
have already been reopened.
ARRAS, France, Jan. 14. — The in
habitiintK of this city are demanding
the release of eight priests who were
arrested yesterday during a demonstra
tion in favor of the Bishop of Arras
after the. reading of the papal encycli
cal. Great excitement prevails through
out the city.
SAN JOSE SUFFERS
IN FUEL FAMINE
SPECIAL DISPATCH TO THE CALL.
SAN JOSE. Jan. 14.— Coal in San Jose
took another jump today and was
quoted by several dealers at $1.25 a
sack. There are at preselnt only thirty
tons of coal in the city, and unless
relief comes at once the city will be
without fuel.
The storm has played havoc with the
School Department. Since the earth
quake the high school students have
been forced to *«.-«\u25a0 k accommodations at
the Lincoln Grammar School and tem
porary structures have sheltered other
Bchool children. The heating facilities
In such cases were necessarily Inade
quate for the recent storm, and today
several schools were closed because of
the cold. It Is also reported that the
Bchool Department is not able to get
all the fuel it wants.

Roosevelt Justifies
Ousting of Troops
TT"V !U->rDK\T ROOSEVELT'S message defending his action In dU
fj Jf charging the negro troops was received hy the Senate yester-
H day. IVitb the message he submitted the reports of Major
Blocka«n and AaaUtant Attornoj- General I'lirdy, maps with dla-
BTram* and photographs and empty shells and bullet* from Springfield
rifles. The President declares that It would have, been impossible to
preserve army discipline by pursuing: any other course than dismissing
the colored soldiers.
Senate Receives Message on Brownsville
Riots, With Bullets arid Diagrams
SPECIAL. DISPATCH TO THE CALL,
WASHINGTON. Jan. 14.— The Browns
ville affair took up most of the time
of the Senate again today, tne President
sending in his message conveying the
report of Assistant Attorney General
Milton D. Purdy on tbe case, and sev
eral Senators discussing the subject in
all Its various phases. Accompanying
the Purdy report were also the results
of Major Blocksom'o Investigation and
the report of Secretary TafL
The testimony taken by Purdy and
Major Blocksom at Brownsville and
other points covers 200 printed pages.
It thoroughly substantiates, the Presi
dent says, the charges made against
the colored soldiers and Justifies his
action In dismissing them from the
army. The President sent along with
his message the empty shells, clips and
bullets gathered from the scene of the
rioting. He declares he was within his
authority in discharging the troops and
says he alone can revoke the order of
dismissal.
A feature of the message was the
President's frank admission that he
was in error ln barring the discharged
soldiers from future civil employment
in the Government and his announce
ment that he had revoked that portion
of his order of discharge.
Senator Foraker had a word to say
about the message, declaring that it
did not alter the justice of his conten
tion that the discharged soldiers should
have their day in court and a full hear
ing on the charges brought against
them. It was evident that nothing in
the now developments in the matter
weakened Foraker's case in his own
estimation.
DEFEND PRESIDENT
Senators Mallory, Clay and Spooner
6poke ln defense of the President's ac
tion. Clay aroused Tillman to several
interruptions by his severe comments
on the South Carolina Senator's speech,
but the debate caused no sensational
remarks or scenes. Senator Spooner
will continue his speech tomorrow. '
In his message the President declares
that the negro troops at Brownsville
committed the following crimes: Mur
der of Frank Nature, an assault on
Lieutenant of Police Dominguez, as
sault on Mr. and Mrs. Hale Odin and
son, shooting into houses containing
\u25a0women and children.
"My evidence," says the message,
"proves beyond the possibility of a
doubt that some individuals among the
colored troops I have dismissed com
mitted these outrages, and that others
had knowledge of the deed and shield
ed the guilty from the law."
The President dismisses as ridiculous
the charge that the Brownsville cit
izens committed the outrage with a
view of throwing odium on the negroes
and obtaining their dismissal. That
the criminals were soldiers was shown
by the fact that reputable whites saw
their uniforms, heard their voices, rec
ognized them as negroes; the fact, that
Springfield rifles were used, no weapons
of that kind being in the hands of the
civilians, and an examination of the
shells and cartridges showing that they
could not have been fired from Krag-
Jo'rgensen or Winchester rifles.
GUIL.T ESTABLISHED
"The finding of this ammunition ln
itself." says the message, '"establishes
the guilt of the soldiers and would be
conclusive if the soldiers were neither
heard nor Been by Brownsville resi
' dents upon the night ln question."
The evidence of fourteen reputable
\u25a0witnesses is submitted. These saw the
attack in its various features and sub
mitted sworn statements. Twenty-five
other witnesses saw minor phases of
the affair and made statements accord
ingly. From all this the President
gathers the Information that twenty
negro soldiers committed the outrage
and that some of the shots were fired
into the town from the fort.
"The shooting was done at mid
night." says the message. "After the
first volley the soldiers advanced upon
the town, firing into residences. Few
of the soldiers in the fort therefore
could have been ignorant of the aXCair.
Indeed, from this additional evidence,
it is probable that but few of the sol
diers dismissed could have missed see
ing the attack. I have gone carefully
over each issue of law and fact that
has been raised. I am now satisfied
that the effect of my order was to bar
these men from all civil employment
under the Government, and therefore
that part of the order which consisted
'of a declaration to this effect wag lack
ing in validity and I have directed that
such portion be revoked."
FORAKER CRITICISES
Foraker observed that the testimony
amounted to a great deal, for the Pres
ident "tells us It is conclusive. 'But
it does not remove the objection I have
held from the beginning of this pro
ceeding," said the Senator. "What I
have been trying to contend for is to
secure a hearing of the men charged
with these serious crimes. This testi
mony has been taken as the other was,
behind closed doors, "without anybody
representing the men.
"That is the reason I shall not de
sist," continued Foraker, "notwith
standing what the President has said
as to the character of it, from press
ing for an investigation of the subject
where the men who are charged with
the crimes of murder, perjury and con
spiracy can be heard, to the end that
if they pan establish any facts ln their
favor they may have an opportunity to
do so."
Later Foraker went to the clerk's
desk and unwrapped the package and
took from the cigar box for a. thor
ough inspection the bullets and shells
the President had sent

SPECIAL DISPATCH TO THE CALL.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 14. — Senator
Perkins and Representatives McLachlan
and Knowland, with Coloned W. H.
Heuer of the army engineer corps, and
George D. Grace, had a hearing before
the rivers and harbors committee to
day on the project for the improvement
of Oakland harbor. An appropriation
of $365,000 is asked for in this case, and
the California delegation Is hopeful
that It may be secured.
The views of the various commercial
organizations of * San Francisco and \
Oakland were presented f) the com- i
mlttee by Grace, and the adoption ofi
the project of* improvement also was,
strongly urged by the other speakers.
The proposed plan, i which is commonly
known as a combination of projects,
JCos. 1 and 3, would give. a seventeen
foot channel around the basin. If as
surances should be given - that this

probable that the commitee would look
favorably upon the project.
WILL XOT INCREASE SALARIES
Senator Galllnger Withdraw* His
Measure Aimed to Aid Solon*
WASHINGTON, Jan. 14.— When th«
legislative bill was taken up ln the
Senate today .Senator Gallinger, who
had given notice of an amendment in
creasing the salaries of Senatfcrs and
members of the House, remarked that
because of the intention of some Sen
ators to make a point of order against
the amendment he. would not present it,
but would rely on separate legislation
to accomplish this purpose.
Dubols regretted that nothing was
to be done. He was one of the Sen
ators who lived on his salary, and
knew the difficulty of doing so. A
number of Senators delivered lectures,
he eaid, to make the, necessary addi
tion to their Senatorial salaries. The
notice given by Senator Gallinger was
taken as an indication that no-actlon
to raise salaries would be successful
at the pYesent session.
The Senate committee's amendment
striking .out the provision increasing
the salaries of the Vice President,
Speaker and Cabinet members was
agreed to. •
SAYS DIPLOMAT IS GRAFTER .
Professor Elliott Assails United States
Minister to Norway
WASHINGTON, Jan. 14.— Sensational
charges against Herbert H. D. Peirce,
United States Minister to Norway, who
formerly was Third. Assistant Secre
tary of State, were made before the
House committee on ways and means
today by Professor W. H: Elliott of
Cleveland, Ohio, in connection with a
hearing on a resolution for the further
protection of fur sealing upon the high
seas. •
Professor Elliott Ptated that while
Peirce was representing the United
States, Government before The Hague
tribunal in settlement of the claims
growing out of the seizure of the seal
ing vessel J. Hamilton Lewis •by the
Russian Government on the charge of
piracy he represented the owners of
the vessel, and even- instituted action
in the United States District Court for
the District of Columbia to insure pay
men of his fee out of the money award
ed to the vessel owners.
The question of an investigation will
be taken, up later, and there will be
further hearings on the entire subject.

. Pre»eat < M*a«nre • V '
WASHINGTON,. Jan. 14.—Represent
ative Hayes today addressed the com
mittee on foreign- affairs in opposition
to the proposed bill modifying the
Chinese exclusion law. He expressed
regret that any proposition should be
brought forward at this time tending
to weaken the present 'law.
Hayes was j especially opposed
to permitting Chinese "bookkeep
ers and accountants" ! to come
Into this country, pointing out
the opportunities for fraud under this,
provision. He attacked the other feat
ures of the bill and expressed in the
strongest terms the opposition of the
Pacific Coast to any change in the law.
The California delegation are confident
the bill will not be passed.
TRAINMEN KILLED
IN COLLISION
KANSAS CITY, Jan. 14.— Rock Island

TWO FACE DEATH
ON TAMALPAIS
Rudolph Bundschu, Over
cpme by Gold in Snow
storm, Saved by Comrade
CARRIED DOWN TRAIL
Exhausted by bis flffbt against the
blizzard high ; up . on the side of Mount
Tamalpats, Rudolph Bundachu, son of
Charles Bundschu, a | local vrlne • mer
chant, would have perlahed early yes
terday' mornlns but for the . nerve and
stamina of his companion, Albon . Wray.
Although numb with cold himself Wray
carried Bundschu ln his arms through
the storm, down the steep and treach
erous trail, until Mill Valley \u25a0 was
reached. , ;
Seldom have^ the lives of pleasure
seekers in Mafin County been endan
gered by snowstorms, and the incident
is probably without precedent in that
part of the State. Snow along: the coast
is a rare phenomenon, and snow .in
quantities sufficient to cause danger to
life was unheard of until the Bundschu
incident called attention to the vaga
ries of the present season.
.. Bundschu and Wray started out early
Sunday morning with four companions
to climb the mountains and enjoy the
rare treat of snowballing. It was not
until the slanting rays of the sun
warned them that- the day was about
ended that their thoughts turned to the
trip baok to the valley.
RETUR.V TRIP BI3GIXB
Four of the stronger members of the
party suggested that the descent be
made by way of "Devil's Slide." as
darkness was approaching. Bundschu
was not equal to the attempt of mak
ing the'homeward Journey by the pre- .',
cipltous trail and Wray suggested that
they take the mountain railroad.
Bundschu would not consent to . this, ,
and "Wray volunteered to make the;
descent by the long trail which winds i
down the slope of the mountain. As
Wray tells the story, the snow was
falling heavily air the while the young
men felt their way down the mountain
slope.
"We had considerable difficulty at the
start," said Wray, "and we had not
gone very far before we lost sight of
the. other' fellows who were trying' the
short cut,-! 'Bundy'i is.not .very husky,
and he soon found' that the snowballing
had taken more of his strength 'than
he thought, and I realized the cold was
telling on him.' Wo had reached the
bottom of. Devil's Slide,', when* 'Bundy'
Just gave out and roljed over in a heap.
"\u25a0'Go on,' he said, 'I 'want to go to'
sleep and will be all right in a minute.'
I then realized how serious the matter
was and felt of his. pulse. -;It'.-only
. counted twenty-five- and he had already
drifted off into a state of unconscious
ness from which I could not-awaken
him. It was up to me, then to. get him
down to the shelter and obtain assist
ance. I shouted, but, the, other fellows
were beyond hearing,, and the storm
drowned my voice. It-. was; Inky black
and I had no idea which way the trail
led. Then I shouldered- 'Bundy' as best
I could and started down. t .. , ; ,
"You can't imagine. how hard It was.
The trail is narrow and difficult to fol
low at _ best, and what with the dark
ness and snow we ; stumbled and
pitched and rolled. 'Bundy' came to
himself a little later. after an unusu
ally hard tumble and 'begged to be al
lowed to rest. I foolishly,; agreed, ' as
I was dead tired myself- and ready to
lay, down and^give up- the fight. : !
BREAK IXTO' HOUSE
"We rested a few minutes and then I
started again. ' We finally reached the
edge of the snow, iine and came into
the open *to . find the rainj pouring in
sheets. It was worse than \u25a0 ever: and
when I espied a house in the distance,
which I believed In the course of con
struction,' I made' my.; way in that di
rection with all speed. No one was
about the premises and so I broke in
the door, expecting to find the ,placo
vacant, intending to leave 'Bundy'
thero while I went \ for 'assistance.
Imagine my surprise on the
place cosily furnished with a big fire
place staring me in the- face. Well,
the way I went after wood and started
a fire was not slow. J rummaged about
and; located, some provisons and soon
had a pot of coffee boiling. A couple
of- cups of ; hot coffee revived: 'Bundy, 1
and after thawing 1 w& traveled' down
to his home in town, which we reached
at 2 a.,m. : ' ' -
"His -mother doesn't know' how. near
'Bundy' came to dying and I guess the
people whose house .1 invaded" will
want some- explanation', but L am go-
Ing to explain It; to them, and I guess
it wiir be' aU\ right." :v

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT
Of the Metropolitan Life Insurance Co.
What is in many respects the moat
Informing and significant paper issued
by any life insurance company during
the present year has just appeared over
the signature ! of John R. Hegeman,
President' of the Metropolitan Life.-
While the communication is addressed
to the . Company's agents, and Is in the
nature of a review and announcement
covering matters chiefly Interesting to
the field force,' it deserves attentive
reading by, every, "one who holds or in
tends to secure a life insurance policy. :
It appears that the Metropolitan Life
has for some. time been engaged in the
preparation of new "mortality tables,"
based; upon! Its own'; experience. •By
comparison of given periods in- recent
years with- corresponding periods 'in
former years.' back, to 1890, the; fact; is
established Hhat . among: the Company's
policy-holders I there has been sufficient
improvement in. mortality (that, is, a
smaller average of deaths r at
ages) to warrant certain changes affect
ing future premiums; and benefits, all
directly in the interest of those Insured
ln the Company. -With characteristic
thoroughness' and : frankness • these re
sults and - changes are specified In
minute detail, not put forth as
mates" or' Vague promises. : \u0084
Their significance ' to the Insuring
public is a reduction In the price of,ln
surance in the ; Industrial Department,
and through a 'readjustment; of rates
of commissions -to .agents, a reduction
of premiums charged In the Ordinary
Department.",

|j / THE STQI^V^
ORE VEIN CANNOT
BE FOLLOWED
;. WASHINGTON, Jan. 14.— 1n an opin
ion by Justice Brewer the Supreme
Court of the United. States decided to
day the sharply contested raining case
between^ the Montana Mining Company
and the St'.:Louls Company, arising out
of a dispute over a thirty-foot strip of
rich mineral ground connected with the
Drum Lummon gold "and silver mine
in Lewis "and' Clark. County, near
Helena. The decision was in favor of
the Montana Company. This is the case
In which former United States
Arthur Brown .of Utah was engaged
when he was shot and killed by: Mrs.
Bradley. He was employed by the St.
Louis Company, which was the loser
by today|s action of the court.'
One cause of the controversy is the
much disputed question of the right to
follow a vein when it leads to other
ground than upon , which the apex Is
located. Justice . Brewer found . other
reasons for the decision. In this case
the apex, is- on ground; owned by the
St. Louis Company, but as it descends it
crosses;; the vertical side line of the
Montana: Company. ;The St. Louis Com
pany, : the right to follow the
vein,: even; under; the surface owned by
its rival, brought the suit.
