PRESIDENT’S SPORT. Hu Had an Enjoyable Trip and Killed Four Bears. Colorado Springs, April 29. —P. B. Stewart, who had charge of the ar rangements for President Roosevelt's hunting trip in Colorado, has returned from the camp, where he was with the President from the latter’s depart ure from Colorado Springs two weeks ago until he left the President's camp yesterday. In telling of the trip Mr. Stewart said: "The first camp was pitched about eighteen miles southeast of New Cas tle. The weather was stormy and in clement for the first week. Here w-e secured the first bear, which was killed by President Roosevelt after having made a walking fight with the dogs for a couple of hours. President Roosevelt shot him at a distance of about sixty-five yards, using an ordi nary army Springfield. It took two shots to kill the bear, although the President fired ' the second shot to keep him from injuring the dogs, the first shot having inflicted a fatal wound. This animal was unusually large for a black bear, his fine skin measuring six feet across. "This country being too high for hunting, we moved camp to another valley, twelve miles distant. Here the party made use of a comfortable old cabin, the first camp being under a group of heavy spruce trees. Within a day's ride it was found that bear abounded. When I left the camp at 4 o'clock Tuesday afternoon six had I been taken. Four liad been killed by | President Roosevelt and two by I)r. I-ambert. No grizzlies had been locat ed. but the character of the country leaves little doubt but that the Presi dent will find some before his trip is ended. "Of the six bear killed. President Roosevelt has three fine pelts of the brown variety, full grown, which were secured Monday and Tuesday. The hunt for these two days extended for a distance of approximately forty miles. The President stood the tedi ous ride as well as any of the party. In the hunting party besides the execu tive were Dr. the guides, Goff and Borah, and myself. "The settlers are delighted to have the President with them, and he is equally pleased with his reception. President Roosevelt appreciates the courtesy with which those Colorado newspapers are treating him who have respected his expressed wishes. There was not a newspaper in camp from the time of our arrival until I left. The distinguished guest devoted his time to hunting and has not ex pressed a desire to read a daily paper. "Throughout the entire trip while I was present there was nothing to in dicate that the President of the United States was there, other than the title, 'Mr. President.' by which the other members of the party adressed him." GEN. FITZHUGH LEE DEAD. Great Confederate and United States General Succumbs to Apoplexy. Washington. April 29.—Brig. Gen. Fitzhugh Lee. U. S. A., retired, died i here last night, aged 68 years, from j an attack of apoplexy which he suf fered early this morning on a train while en route ftom Boston to Wash ington. * After General Lee had been removed to the hospital here it was evident to the attending physicians that his case was a very serious one. but they be lieved that his strong vitality and will power would assist materially in a partial recovery, at least, from the at tack. His condition remained fair, consid ering the severity of the attack, dur ing the day. but shortly after 9 o'clock he began to grow weaker, his breath ing became more rapid and his pulse lower, terminating in less than two hours in death. The end was peaceful and without pain, the general remaining conscious until within five minutes of the end. Half an hour before death General l>*e rerognized his brother Daniel who came Into the room for a moment. In the room when he died were Dr. Montgomery, one of the physicians at the hospital: Miss Dorsey, a relative, and a nurse, two of the attending phy sicians. Drs. Edle and Kean, having retired temporarily. A pathetic fea ture of the case is that although Gen eral l,ee was blessed with a family consisting of a wife and five children, not one of them was with him at the time of his death. General Lee was a nephew of the famous confederate chieftain. Robert E. Lee. He was born in Virginia in 1835. He graduated from West Point in 185*». and became an officer in the crack Second Cavalry, serving with distinction in the Comanche war in Texas. He resigned in May. 1861. and entered the Confederate army, rising tapidly in rank and being made a major general in 1863. with command i of the cavalry of the army of North | ern Virginia. We went on a farm after the war. ■ and In 1885 was elected governor of Virginia. President Cleveland placed j him on the* board of visitors to West ! Point and later appointed him consul | general at Havanu. where he was re-1 tained by President McKinley, serving | his country with great distinction un til the Spanish war broke out. He was then made a major general of volun teers and rode back into Havana; ahead of an American army. He was later placed on the retired list with the rank of brigadier general. Expects a Long War. j Toklo. April 29. —Count Okuma, leader of the Progressive party and • former foreign minister, addressing to j day the committee of the Progressive ! party appointed to succor the wound- I ed. estimated the number of wounded and sick as a result of the war at 200.000 to 300.000. and the number killed or who had died of disease at 50.0Q0. The count warned the people to be prepared for a lengthy war and ex !pressed the hope that a continuance of the struggle would not affect the na tional s« ntiment. Nothing, he added, should shake their resolution to con tinue the war. Federal Injunction Issued. Chicago.

BILL KILLED BY VETO 'the RAILROAD MEASURE FAILS Governor McDonald Vetoes House Bill 178—Believes Colorado A. South ern Measure Would Tend to Estab lish Monopoly. Denver. April 29.—Governor Jesse F. McDonald yesterday vetoed House Bill 178, generally known as the Colo rado A: Southern railroad extension measurt In bis message to the secretary of state announcing his veto of the bill, the governor says: "I herewith transmit to the honor able secretary of state House Bill No. 178, without my approval, for the fol lowing reasons: "I have had this act under careful consideration for some time, endeavor ing solely to decide what was for the best Interests of the people of the whole state of Colorado. “The title to this act is 'An act Au thorizing Railroad Companies to Ac quire and Hold or Guarantee the Cap ital Stock or Obligations of Other Rail road or Transportation Companies, and to' Purchase or Lease and Operate Other Lines of Road, and. Providing Modes of Payment, or of securing Payment, and to Authorize Railroad Companies to - Sell or Lease Their Property.’ "The title is. appropriate, and the bill, by its terms, undertakes to legis late so that any railroad company may acquire and hold the capital stock of any other railroad or transportation company, or may purchase or lease and operate other lines of road. “Section 2 of the bill declares that the ‘Act shall not be construed to per mit any railroad company to purchase or lease any parallel and competing line situated within this state,’ but does not in any way atempt to limit the construction of the act to prevent a parallel and competing, or a parallel or competing line from acquiring and holding all the stock and obligations of a parallel aiul competing line or lines of railroad. "Holding the stock and bonds of one railroad by another, means that the holding company controls the road whose stock it holds, although the le gal title remains In another company. “If a railroad may hold the stock of another railroad or transportation company, it, may- hold the stock of many, or of all railroad and transpor tation companies in the state. By one - railroad holding the stock of other railroad and transportation companies, without any limitations whatever, com petition can be stifled and a monopoly created which will be a great menace to the people of the state. "The railroad companies in the state have been built up and have grown to their present efficient and prosperous condition in a sparsely populat' d dis trict under the present laws. This bill seems to take away all limitations so far as legislation Is concerned upon the power to create a monopoly or trust In the railroad and transportation companies of the state. No advantage adequate to the risk of legalizing such a monopoly seems to be offered to the people by this bill, and under the cir cumstances I believe that to grant to railroad and transportation companies greater facilities to create a monopoly at this time, would be unwise and vi cious legislation and would be taking a step In the wrong direction, as the demands of the people and business in terests of the state do not seem to re quire such a departure. "I therefore file said bill In the office of the secretary of state of Colorado without executive approval. "JESSE F. MCDONALD. “Governor. "Dated at Denver, Colo., April 28, 1905, at 4 p. m.” Four More Bears Killed. Denver, April 29. —A Republican spe cial from Glen wood Springs last night says: Four bears were killed by the President’s party yesterday. Details of the killing have not yet come in. Late to-day Secretary Loeb received a telephone message from a tanch house two miles from camp. The message was dictated by the President and read to Mr. Loeb by Elmer Chapman, the courier. It said: “We got four bears yesterday. We are all well.” There was more to the message touching upon governmental affairs, but the rumor that the President had been ill was proven unfounded. It has not been determined when the party will move to Its new location about sixteen miles from Glenwood Springs. At the same time It is believed the change proposed will result in the kill ing of grizzlies, which variety has been particularly scarce. Brown bears have been found In plenty, but the grizzly and the silver tip appear to be too wily for the hunters. Souvenir hunters are haunting the shop of Frank Hayes, the local taxi dermist who is mounting the skins sent in by the President. He is giving awav joints from the feet of the bears killed. His mail is growing heavier every day because of the prominence given him as the mounter of the trophies from the President’s hunt. Colorado Health Report. Denver.

FREEDOM OF RELIGION IS GRANTED BY CZAR OF RUSSIA Proclamation of Emperor Nicholas Grants Real Liberty of Conscience —Action Affects More Than Fifty Million Dissenters. St. Petersburg. May 1.—2:20 a. m.— Real religious ireedotu conferred upon his subjects by Emperor Nicholas as an Easter gift is a historic event of the highest significance in comparison with which the remission of millions of dollars in taxes to the peasantry, a long list of decorations aud six pages of promotions of bereaucralic officials are hardly worth comment. Liberty of conscience has been re peatedly proclaimed, and Procurator Pobedonostzeff. in his reply to the evangelical j»etition of 18SS, contended that it existed in the empire. The tact is that as a trvsting place al Religions have been tolerated in Russia, but none has been allowed to trespass upon orthodox faith as enunciated from the mosque that faces the church on the Nevsky in St. Petersburg. The Stundists and Molkans of southern Russia, now the principal non-conformists, who might be de scribed as the Quakers of Russia, have made tremendous progress in recent years in spite of persecutions which often have driven them eastward and them pioneers of Russian colonization. There are in all about of these dissidents. The Emperor's act will also affect about 40.000.000 belonging to alien faiths, such as the Jews. Catholics and Lutherans of Poland and the Baltic provinces, the Protestants of Finland and the followers of Islam and Buddha in the Urals, the Crimea, the Cau casus. Turkestan and Central Asia. These figures are only approximate, as probably millions who are nom inally orthodox secretly profess other religions. Whole villages of Mussul mans baptized into the orthodoz com munion by a ruse petitioned in vain to be j»ermitted to return to Mohamme danism. While the Emperor’s approval of the action of the committee of ministers distinctly holds to orthodox as the state religion and creates the usual commission to work out many details in connection with the offspring of mixed marriage during minority, le gimitization of marriages and registra tion of deatns and births, it also re scinds a number of acts aimed spe cifically at various religions and estab lishes the principle of absolute free dom of worship and the right of every Russian who becomes of age to change his confession of faith, in which the assurance of religious freedom lies. President in Good Health. Denver. April 30.—Philip B.

To seriously suggest it now would provoke a smile from men who know the cost of si:ch a project. Yet it may happen some day, if busi ness continues’to increase as rapidly as in the last decade.
