A dispatch to the Exchange Telegraph company at London from Cowes, \ Isle is Wight, sent out at midnight, Saturday night, wai as follows: "The queen of England lies at death's door. She was stricken with paralysis Saturday night Renter's Telegraph. company understands that the j prince of Wales has received authorL ity to act in her majesty's stead, and r thus has been created a practical * though not constitutional regency." A second telegram sent at 8 o'clock Sunday morning stated that the queen was still alive, but her condition was extremely grave and hopes w<.re growing fainter. Humbly, for this woman rales her court ~ with no uncertain hand, her court officials implored her to seek medical advice. These messages she Bte&dfastly ignored, and thongh her , condition was admitted to be most seTinna. tV?#vTA were onlv in attendance Drs. Powell and Reid. In the opinion of those best qualified to judge, the queen's serions con;'.f dition was precipitated by intense worfry over the losses and hardships suf fered by-the British troops in South Africa." Frequently she has remarked to court attaches that another war k would kill ber. In this connection, Renter's Tele- J graph . Company learns that she was h most seriously ill while last at Balmoral in the pntnmn. No word of this became public, bat it appears that she was then almost dyiDg, though that W rigorous .etiquette, which she imposes alike upon Ler family and attendants, f prevented her condition being even I spoken of as dangerous.

CADETS ARE REPENTANT. They Express Sorrow For Hazing and Promise to Mend Their Ways. The congressional investigation of the West Point military academy has borne fruit rather unexpectedly. Sxturdsy night, when tho congressmen were hurrying their inquiries to a termination, the cadets of all the four classes held a meeting in Grant hall and unanimously decided to abolish hazing of every form -as well as the practice of "calling out" fonrth class men. This is exactly what General Dick aud the other members of the congressional committee have been trying to impress on the cadets who have testified before them, as the only coarse open to them if they desire to see the fair name of tho United States military academy unsullied and above reproach. The communication was addressed to Superintendent A. L. Mills, who only got back from Washington Saturday morning and he qnickly handed it to General Dick. The committeemen are delighted with the action of the cadets, and General Dick, in a few word's, said that they would all go Kack to the house of representatives with the firm belief that in spirit and letter the agreement would be steadfastly adhered to by the cadets, who made it voluntarily. FRAZER NEATLY BUNCOED. Reward of $500 Paid But Hissing Youth Was Not Forthcoming as Agreed Upon. C. H. Frazer, brother of Bass Frazer, the. youth believed to be kidnaped, arrived in Atlanta Saturday night from Union Springs, Ala., carried out a thrilling program mapped out by alleged kidnaper, p?id over $500 in gold to a man in the dark, surrounded by lonely woods, upon the promise that his brother was to appear, a free man, at the Hotel Marion, it 9 o'clock Sunday morning. Nine o'clock Sunday morning came, but young Frazer did not appear. Ten o'clock came, and the mystery was as thick as ever. Twelve o'clock, and 0. H. Frazer left the hotel downcast and disheartened, realizing that he bad been duped and robbed of $500 in gold, but satisfied that he had done ill in his power to restore his brother to their broken hearted parents. The reception of the second letter from the alleged kidnapers by Bass Frazev's father, the trip to Atlanta by his brother,the carefully carried out plans, the meeting in dark woods miles away from the city, the payment of the gold in d the disappointment, all add a seo3nd chapter to the disappearance of foung Bass Frazer which makes the dory even more strange and mystifying than the kidnaping of young Culahy in Omaha. A letter had been received by Captain Frazer at Union Springs, Ala., which was mailed in Atlanta on Fri3ay, Jannary 18th. It gave a plan in detail how the $500 in gold was to be ielivered. It enjoined great care and secrecy and wound up with threats of evenge if the plan failed through any treachery. SUPERCEDES UOEBEL LAW. Kentucky's New Election Measure Is Now in Full Force.

Senator Hoar, of Massachusetts, who was detuined at his home by ill ness, was paired against the bill with Senator Spooner, of Wisconsin. The bill has occupied practically the entire attention of the senate since the third day of January, when it was made the unfinished business. While the opposition to it at all stages was vigorous, it was never bitter. Numerous amendments were made to it, but in general the committee was sustained and the measure, with the exception ol the elimination of the canteen clause, ie not widely different frcm that reported to the senate. A determined effort to amend the bill to nrovide against the sale of liquoi in the Philippines and to prohibit the importation of any kind of intoxicants into the islands was defeated. Every effort to prevent the increase in the strength of the at ray was de feated by a decisive majority. A notable speech was delivered during the day by Mr. Hale, of Maine, who, while opposing the increase ii the strength of the army, stated co< gently his reasons for supporting the bill. The measure was sent to conference between the two houses, Senators Hawley, Republican, of Connecticut; Proctor, Republican, of Vermont, and Cockrell, Democrat, ol Mississippi, being appointed conferees on the part of the senate. Mr. Lodge, of Massachusetts, presented the credentials of his colleague, Mr. Hoar, who was re-elected. This is his fifth election.

A message was received in Washington Friday from Minister Conger al Pekin stating that the Chinese plenipotentiaries had signed and delivered the protocol.

J., says: Interested crowds filled the court room Wednesday during the , trial of the three alleged murderers of 1 Jennie Bosschieter, the mill girl. The state having rested its case , Tuesday night, the day's proceedings began with the presentation by counsel of the case for the defense. Of the three accused meD, Death most Sh Att'A/1 fV?A efvoin f 1?mn rrV\ wViinlt fhor uuncl1 p"ou' j were passing. McAllister, on the other hand, was comparatively selfpossessed; but Campbell was evidently ^ troubled and anxious, i Michael Dunn in delivering his address opening the case for the defense, promised to prove that the death of Jennie Bosschieter was not caused in ' the commission of a criminal assault, f and also that the charge of willful - murder could not stand against the j defendants. Mr. Dunn proceeded with a narrative of the events preceding the death of Jennie Bosschieter, the purpose of * it being to show that the meeting of the four men, McAllister, Campbell, 1 Death and Kerr, was not prearranged I and that the girl made the first adi vances that opened the way for the > meeting at Saal's saloon. In the saloon, according to counsel, the girl drank freely, taking cocktails and absinthe. She became drowsy. 1 Then she was escorted from the saloon to the hack, McAllister and Death 5 walking on either side of her. She was 1 not carried, the attorney said. The 1 narrative of the counsel for the de1 fense proceeded with the ride in the 5 hack to the place where the girl died. ' She had become unconscious and the 5 men lifted her from the hack to the ^ ground, where they kneeled around her and made every effort to revive ? her, rubbing her hands and face. She was taken with nausea and the men used their pocket handkerchiefs to * wipe her face. The hackman, counsel said,was mis1 taken when he testified that the ao1 cused men assaulted the girl. Despairing of succeeding in reutoring 1 the girl to consciousness the men put her back in the hack and drove for aid to the house of the nearest physician The death of Jennie Bosschieter, > counsel said, was accidental; her 1 drink was not drugged and her person " was not violated bv the defendants, i I CHARGED WITH ARSON. Merchant of Falrbnro, Georgia, Lodged In Atlanta's Jail. f J. E. Thompson, a prominent meri chant of Fairburn, Ga., was lodged in the Tower, at Atlanta, on the charge of arson. Thompson -was arrested at the instance of J. R Brantley, another fairburn merchant } It is alleged that Thompson fired four stores in Fairburn on the night of December 31st. Brantley's store was among the number of buildings burned, and Thompson's store was also destroyed. Thompson is said to be a highly respected citizen of Fairburn, and his arrest came in the nature of a great > surprise. The prisoner was seen in his cell at i the Tower, but stated that he prefer red not to discuss his case. "Of course," said he, "every man who is arrested for a crime, whether i he is guilty or not, claims that he is ? innocent, and there would be no use , iu my saying I am not guilty. (The , charge against me will simply have to be proven." t PREMATURELY PUBLISHED. I Members of Courtmartial Anxious to Know How Leak Occurred. Members of the courtmartial who sat recently in Atlanta, Ga., to try the cases against Captain E. E. Aldred, . Eieutenant G. I. S. Watt and Sergeant P. H. Huff, are very anxious to ascertain if any one connected with the ; court has divulged the findings of that body. The publication of the findings of a ; courtmartial prior to the action of the ; governor upon them means a leak > somewhere, which is equivalent to the violation of an oath, and it would not - - 1 - ? il. ^ i De surprising n some memoers ox ni? court should insist on an investigation, so that the responsibility might be properly placed.

At Raleigh, N. C., Tnesday, the inauguration ceremonies were carried 1 out perfectly in every detail, About 7,000 people were in Capitol square and as many more on the streets near . by. Governor-elect Aycock arrived at the railway station soon after 11 o'clock and was given a demonstration. It was noon when the legislature w s seated in front of the capitol. Half an hour later Governor Aycock and Guvernor Russell, followed by all other outgoing and incoming officers, appeared on the pla'form, while the band played "Dixie." Master of Ceremonies Francis Winston said: "Gentlemen of the General Assembly, Ladies and Fellow Citizens: The inauguration of the twenty-third elected governor of North Carolina will be opehed with prayer by Rev. J). A. A. Marshall." The minister prayed that the governor might rise above party and be governor of all his people, and that the memory of Yance, whose bronze statue was so near, might nerve and inspire him. Mr. Winston then presented the new officers as follows: First Corporation Commissioners McNeill end Rogers. Labor Commissioner Yaner, Commissioner of Agriculture Patterson, Attorney General Gilmer, Superintendent of Pulic Instruction Toon, Auditor Dixon, Treasurer Lair, Secretary of State Grimes, Lieutenant Governor Turner. As each was sworn the retiring official stood np. Governor Rnsseil stepped forward and said to the legislature and people: "I present for qualification, according to the constitution and law, the governor-elect of this commonwealth," A great demonstration came after Governor Aycock took the oath. He looked the picture of health and made a great speech, to which the great audience gave undivided attention. Governor Aycock turned to Mr. Russell aud said: "Henceforth let hatred and strife cease among us." When he concluded Governor Russell shook hands with him. Current comment is that Aycock's is the strongest inaugural address ever delivered in Raleigh. There was great applause at his demands that henceforth ballots shall bo counted as cast, and that all persons shall be educated. His address made a profound impression upon Republicans and Populists, who expressed admiration. A review of troops followed the inauguration. The provisional regiment of infantry, twelve companies, three divisions of naval reserves and four companies of cadets passed in review, making an appearance which impressed the governor and the 20,000 spectators. An incident of the day was the appearance near the speaker's stand cf an aged man with a large silk banner with the words "White Supremacy" on one side and "The Ladies' Banner" on the other sidy*. Near him was a boy, -on whose uplifted hands was perched a white rooster, from whose neck swung Aycock's portrait. Hundreds of people wore Aycock's picture on the front of their hats. on AY WINS OUT.

FLOWERS BY THE WAGON LOAD Such a Demonstration Was Never Before Accorded Any Repre sentative^at the Capital. Matthew Stanley Quay, re-elected as a senator from Pennsylvania took the oath of office in the senate Thursday. Mr. Quay had been assigned to the second seat in the back row on the Republican side, the desk formerly occupied by Mr. liana, of Ohio. An hour before the senate convened beautiful floral presents began to be piled*on and around the senator's desk. By the time the senate was called to order, the messengers had found it impossible to place to advantage any more of the floral offering. Not in the history of the senate has a single senator been the recipient of such a profusion of flowers, beautiful in themselves and lavishly elaborate in their arrangement, as ttie Pennsylvania senator received on this occasion. One of the handsomest pieces was a huge keystone arch of white immortelles, the keystone being of deep red immortelles. It was several feet in height and bore the worde: "The Verdict of the People." The flowers were sent to the capitol literally oy the wagon load, and it was found im?/^ior>loTT tlium in t.Vio HftTiatfi pUOOlUiC bU UiO^luj kuvuj ?u ?MV w.w chamber. Many of them were allowed to remain in the corridors. Just before the senate convened Mr. Quay entered the chamber. As he was recognized by his friends tremendous applause swept over the crowded galleries. It was prolonged for a full half minute. Meantime, Mr. Quay was receiving the cordial congratulations of his colleagues on the door of the senate. By this time the senate chamber was thronged by senators and others entitled to the privilege of the floor of the senate. Scores of members of the house had come to the senate side of the capitol to witness the inductment of Mr. Quay into office, among them practically the .entire Pennsylvania delegation. As sooh as the senate had convened Mr. Penrose presented the credentials of Mr. Quay and requested that the oath of office be administered to his colleague. As no objection was offered Mr. Penrose escorted Mr. Quay to the desk of the president pro tempore, Mr. Frye. Before taking the oath Mr. Quay shook bands cordially with Mr. Frye. The president pro tem previously had announced to the people in the galleries that no applause or demonstrations of approval or disapproval wnnld hp nArmitted. Thus no demon stration occurred when Mr. Quay had taken the oath. After he had signed the roll at the desk of the secretary he retired to his seat, where he was overwhelmed with congratulations. Within a few minutes hundreds of people had left the floor and galleries, the floral offerings had disappeared from the chamber and the senate bad resumed its wonted appearance. TROOPS TO QUELL RIOT.

GATHER AROUND DYING QUEEN British Press Teems With Laudations and Eulogies of the Dying Queen. Telegrams sent out from Cowes Monday afternoon at four o'clock stated that a slight improvement was visible in the queen's condition, but there was no hope of anything but a fatal ending. Inquiries from all ports of the world continued to pour in. A London special says: On his arrival at Portsmouth en route from London to Cowes, Emperor William was met by a guard of honor. The party, however, ^dispensed with the usual formalities and immediately went on board the royal yacht Alberta. As they started for Cowes the band on the flagship, the Majestic, struck up the national anthem, and Emperor William, the prince of Wales and their royal relatives bared their heads. When the royal party disembarked at Cowes during the forenoon a good sized crowd was there to greet them. The party drove immediately to Osborne house. The crowd naturally refrained from cheering and silently took off their hats. The emperor cordially and frequently responded by bowing. 'They drove to Osborne house in open carriages. The prince of Wales appeared to be half dazed, and the duke of fork's eyes were red, while the duchess of Connaught did not cease crying. The London Daily News refers to a eulogy of the dying queen by Bishop Potter, of New York, and says: "Bishop Potter compared her majesty to Washington. No American could go further than that*" The Daily Telegraph says: "It seems but a brief interval since England was the center of almost universal hostility. Today all international hostilities are hushed and stilled as they never were before by any single event in the annals of the world/' The Daily Chronicle observes: "In the United States the nation and government display once again the ir repressible sentiment of a cognant people. The strain of commop blood which flows in British and American veins has been rarely more manifest or more warmly recognized." . This evidence of universal sympathy extended toward England in her honr of trouble is, in fact, the leading theme, and the Standard remarks: ' "There is no enetny of England too bitter and no professing contemner of* crowns and thrones too fanatical to admit the virtues and service to mankind of Queen Victoria." Most of the German newspapers express sincere concern as to Queen Vici toria and praise Emperor William for going to Osborne. The agrarian and ? * I . pao-Uerman journals, aowevw, uud a different tone. The Deutsche Tages Zeitnng, the Leading agrarian organ, concludes an abusive article in this ' style: "The rising of English power is now followed by a decline. That she has seen the beginning of such a decline has given Queen Victoria a death stroke. She saw the commencement of the decay of that whose splendid development she had witnessed during her long life. This is the tragio finale of her prolonged reign.

Dno. followed bv the 8UC ? ? ? r ? * cessfnl planting and manufacture of tea at the Pinehurst farms, Summerville, near Charleston, has attracted northern capitalists, who will go into the business on a large scale and who expects to raise 390,000 pounds annually for the American market. Colonel A. C. Tyler and Major B. D. Trimble, of New London, Conn., and I the Bsron J. A. Yon Brunig, formerly ^ of the German legation at Washington, are leaders of the enterprise and have " ^ already bought 4,000 acres of pine land along the line of the Charleston and Savannah railroad, fifteen miles distant.

The alumni hall of Wofford College |f| was burned on the morning of January 18th. The fire was discovered in the upper story about 2 o'clock. It caught either in one of the rooms or in the attic above. It is nearly a mile from the headquarters of the 'fire depart- | ment, and owing to the honr and high wind, the firemen did not hear the ,| alarm and the response was rather ' slow. The attic and fourth-story were harping when the first reel team arrived. It was found impossible to save the building. The furniture and trunks of the inmates in the upper story were burned. The most of the furniture on the first and second story was taken out. Prof. Manson DuPre saved his library, but it was mueh damaged. v j About forty students had rooms in the '-M building. Mrs. Beeder was the ma- .,'j t^on, but she had been very unwell for it i some time and had to be carried from 1 the building. The hall was built by. the alumni of the College about ten years ago at a cost of $10,000. Some additions have been made since that fi time. It was insured for only $8,000. The fnrniture had no insurance at all. At first view it looks as if the fitting . school would have to be suspended for the balance of the session. Bat the -J faculty and local trustees are oonaid- ... ering the condition of affairs, and it is probable that arrangements'will< , , J be made to go onTwithout any oosia ' tion. The walls of the building have given 'M way and when rebuilt it will have to be from the ground. It is not known '~|f how the fire originated. New Executive Mansion Proposed. An effort will be made during the ;||g present session of the general assem* blytobave anew executive mansion . jj* built. There is no question that the - - ^ present home for the chief exeontive A d of the state is in s rather bad condition and that there should be a new baildingt The only question is now can this be accomplished? One pro- || position is to sell -the square on Ar- >p senal Hill, on which the present man- Jgj sion is situated, and *ith the proceeds from the sale, which ought to be at least $25,000, a new and modern mansion can be erected. The plan of some is to have the new man- ^ sion built on the present state house grounds, or on the property of the South Carolina college. This plan . fl will be pressed. It is, however, open to objections. Tbe mansion is now in the prettiest part of the city, It is isolated to a certain extent and given a place of prom- ' ], inence. The state owns the property "f on which it is and it can better afford to hold real estate than any one else. To put the building on the state house grounds would mar a pretty park and . make the building public and give comparatively no privacy. To put the JS building on the South Carolina oollege property would be an encroaohment on property set aside a hundred years ago for a college, and in time the South Carolina college, which is bound to ex- v&lj pand, will need its present grounds. s Trt nnfl nnhltA hnildinir on the college property would be followed by ^ the erection of other buildings, and the college campus would soon be crowded and would? soon lose its distinctire collie character.
