Plans are afoot, it is believed, for the consummation of a confederation of the Central Amer ican republics. Proof, of this is offered, to the minds .of Cen tral American diplomats here, in the sudden disappearance of Dr. Luis Anderson. Anderson was here as the special repre sentative of Costa Rica, and was the candidate of Mexico for president of the proposed "United States of Central America." He left on receipt of, a telegram, and it is learned that his des tination is Cartago. Central American diplomats fear there may yet be a conflagration where now there is only a blaze. In such case the governments most interested in the various coun tries would interfere, with the result that chaos would ensue, and a new organization would be necessary. It is believed that Anderson hurried south in anticipation of such eventuality. He has the indorsement of Mexico, and holds the confidence of at least two other states on the isthmus. .

Dec. 17.--The entire kingdom of Belgium mourns for the departed ruler, Leopold II. The courts, schools and theatres are all closed, and parliament and the mu nicipal councils have adjourned. All flags are at half mast In every city, town and village in the kingdom. Under the constitution the af fairs of the nation are in control of the cabinet until Prince Albert takes the oath of succession next Thursday, the day after the funeral of his uncle. The hody of Leopold remains in the mortuary chamber, "The Palms." Tomorrow night the body will be received in the palace at. Brussels. The filing of his Will shows that tho king divided $3,000,000 among his three daughters, the Princesses Louise, Stephanie and Clementine. This practical disinheritance of his children signalizes the beginning of a irlcantic legal battle to obtain tho i,w wealth. The exact amount come. The confining of the hot wa ter and Bteam in this 30-inch tube is of immense practical value, re sulting in a cool tunnel nt all loca tions and rendering the air favor able for unlimited transportation and exploration work by the middle group of mines. It is a big under taking and is a big stride forward in making accessible a large territory. vi.-W MILL NEARLY COMPLETED The new mill being built by Cap tain Davis at Dayton Is nearly com pleted and it will be by far the best mill in the state when finished. of Leopold's' wealth will probably i never be revealed. Senator Winer, the king's friend and confidential adviser, told the Associated Press that Leopold had turned over a large portion of his wealth to the Baroness Vaughn and her children, and had created a stock company of his estate to fore stall any possible raid upon it by the Prlneeses Louise or Stephanie, or their creditors. Senator Winer said later that perhaps a large por tion of the property would be given the Princess Clementine, aside from the bequest, which had been provid ed for by a special income from Congo property. Investigation shows that the right of succession to the throne by the child of the king, by the Baroness Vaughn, isn't worthy of serious con sideration. It is pointed out that if there was only a religious cere mony, the laws of the kingdom will prevent the accession of the child of such a union. Davis, who recently nau nis oui mill burned and other property de stroyed by fire, has determined that this time he will have a mill built that will not burn. This new mill will have a capacity of 20 stamps and will be so arranged that it can I be enlarged without much trouble. It. will have a steel frame and will bo covered with corrugated Iron. The floor will be of cement and there will be very little wood in the entire structure. Even the flume leading into tho mill to carry water tn tin. turbine wheels w.il be of steel and iron so that they cannot burn.

WINGHELD HAS TURNED FARMER $820 A SQUAltE FOOT By Associated Press NEW YORK, Dec. 17. A high record price for real estate was es tablished today. A 19-story build ing on Wall street was sold to the Manhattan Trust company for $1, 500,000, or approximately $820 a square foot. One of the most important an nouncements made in the history of this project is that which has to do with the proposed creamery and dairying enterprises of George Wingfleld, the multi-millionaire, H. J. Kinkald and their associates, owners of the Comstock company ranch, for with the announcement goes the guarantee that comes from unlimited capital and a virgin field, which appeals so strongly to these men of judgment. The plans include the early instal lation In this place of a completely equipped creamery and Icing plant, while co-incident with the inaugura tion of the creamery company will be the establishing of a large dairy on the Comstock ranch, where ideal conditions exist for the care of dairy herds. Already the enterpris ing gentlemen behind the project have ordered a herd of 100 Holsteln milk cows from the California state experimental farm at Davlsvllle, Cal ifornia, and Mr. Klnkaid left this week for that point to make selec tion of the stock, which, according to present plans, will he shipped here along early In February. All necessary money for financing these enterprises has already been subscribed and placed In the bank and within the next week the pro posed crenmery enterprise will be formally incorporated, the Comstock Ranching company already being a live corporation.
