Cuba Now a Republic—Volcanoes la the West Indies Still Active—Injunction Granted Against Packers’ Combine. Negro Burned at the Stake In Texas. The Valdem, Copper Rivr.r and Yukon Railway company, capital 12,400,000, was incorporated at Trenton, N. J. Lewanika, king of Barotzeland (in northwestern Rhodesia), the only king who will be present at the coronation of King Edward, has arrived in London from Sonth Africa. The leading furniture manufacturer! of the country met at Chicago and formed a combination or pool which will control the furniture output of the United States and regulate prices. The capital represented is about 925,000,000. Fred W. Krapp, aged 45, of Hartford, Conn., died in New York from the effects of the heat, while several other persons were overcome and had to be conveyed to their homes or to hospitals. The General Conference of the Meth. odist Episcopal Church Sonth, in session at Dallas, Tex., ratified the recommend* ation made by Dr. Tlgert, including circuses in the list of worldly amoae* meats that the church membership should not indulge in. The university of California defeated the Princeton athletie team in a dual meet held at Princeton, N. J., by the ■core of 7 to 6, California having much the beet of the lot in the (prints and hurdles, and Princeton showing up the stronger in the distance and field events. Karl Mann, the vegetarian, won the international pedestrian match from Berlin to Dresden. The distance cov ered was 125 miles, and Mann’s time was 27h. 13 min. 14% sec. The next man, a meat-eater, finished one hour and 45 minutes behind Mann. Dudley Morgan, a negro, who as saulted Mrs. McKee, wife of a Texas and Pacific section foreman, at Lansing, Tex., was burned at the stake at that place. The negro was tortured in a fiendish manner, with the mob clamor ing for a alow death. Section Foreman McKee, husband of the woman as saulted, applied the match to the fag gots. Mrs. McKee, accompanied by four women, was brought in a carriage to the scene of the lynching. The temporary injunction asked for by the government against the members of the so-called packers’ combine is now in force, says a Chicago dispatch. They will have until Aug. 4 to make reply to the complaint. All the evidence tended to show that there is an agreement among the packers in various cities by which competition is done away with, business being allotted in shares and prices fixed. J. P. Fay, in a letter, has confessed that he has been masquerading under the name of J. A. Adams, a mining en gineer, who is said to have lost his life during March on the Mojave desert, says a Colorado Springs dispatch. In April Fay wrote to Mrs. Adams of Pe trolia, Humboldt county, Cal., that her ■on had lost his life by wandering away from the camp on the desert. He now odds that he took the cards and memo randum book of Adams in the hope of getting a job as a mining engineer. Adams’s mother, in her endeavor to fiud proofs of her son's death, encountered the bogus Adams and compelled the confession. Jessie, Gertrude and Pearl Prescott, aged 11, 9 and 4 years respectively, arrived at Trail, B. 0., from Manches ter, England, having traveled without a chaperon. They met with no acculeut, missed no connections, and reached their mother’s arms just one month after setting out. Miss Jessie took charge of the purse and acted as busi ness manager. Their mother met them at Trail, and with her a large number of people who had heard of the trip and gathered to give them a warm welcome. The government and control of the island of Cuba, in compliance with in structions received, was formally trans ferred by General Wood to the presi dent and congress of the republic of Cuba. President Palma, in accepting the responsibilities in behalf of the island, thanked the republic of the United States and its officials for all that has been done for Cuba and for the fulfillment of promises mode. Amid tho booming of guns the Stars and Stripes came down from the staff of the palace and Morro castle. A moment later Cuba’s flag rose to the peak on fort and palace, a great wave of oheers swept through the streets of the city, and a new member had been added to the sisterhood of nations. An hour later the cruiser Brooklyn was hull down on the horizon, bearing Governor Wood home to the United States. From recent dispatches it is learned that Mont Pelee, on the island of Mar tinique, again belched forth a torrent of lava and mud, which rushed down the northern slope of the mountain and swept away what was left of the town of Basse Points. St. Pierre is now completely oovered with lava. La Son foot*, on thu UlauLof still Very active. Lava is streaming into the sea, while clonds of sulphurous smoke extending for miles, obscure the land. The laborers in the sugar dis tricts have killed their horses for food, and are now dying from diseases of the intestines caused by volcanic dust. The London Daily Mail understands that the system under which British officers are educated and trained is con demned in the most emphatic and sweeping terms in the unanimous re port of the commission appointed over a year ago to inquire into the entire subject. The report is believed to be an amasing document. Among other things, the committee asserts that once •n officer has gained the rank of oap tain his subsequent advancement de pends upon anything but knowledge. WASHINGTON NOTES Blind Chaplain Mil burn of the senate was struok by a runaway horde at tached to a buggy as be was leaving the capitoL The large toe of one foot was cut off and several of the other toes badly injured. The accident would have been far more serious but for Mr. Mil burn’s daughter, who pulled him from a position immediately in front of the run away horse as it was about to dash upon her father. , President Roosevelt joined with the official representatives of the French re public in unveling the statue of Marshal de Rochambeau, the compatriot of Washington and the oommander-in chief of the French forces in America during the revolutionary war. It was an event combining many demonstra tions of international good will and with oratory and music expressive of Frau co American friendship. The magnificent bronze statue, the gift of France, stands in Lafayette park, opposite the White House, and was unveiled by the Countess de Rochambeau. OBITUARY. Lord Pauucofote, the British embas sador to the United States, is dead at the embassy in Washington. He was born in Munich, Bavaria, 74 years ago, and was the issue of one of the most ancient British families. The remains will be sent to England on a warship Edwin Lawrence Godkin, editor emer itus of the New York Evening Post, died recently in Brixham, South Devon shire, England. The immediate cause of death was hemorrhage of the brain. Mr. Godkin was born in Ireland 71 years ago. At the time of receiving the de gree of D.O.L. from Oxford, in 1897, a leading English writer declared him to be perhaps the most distinguished of living journalists. James F. Caldwell, the veteran race horse starter, is dead of apoplexy at Saratoga, N. Y. He was a native of Danville, Ky., and was 65 years old. His reputation as a starter was very high, as at one time he was paid I960 a day for his services. At a reoeption tendered Unitsd States Senator Kearns by the Ladies’ Republi can club of Provo, Utah, Reed Smoot, an apostle of the Mormon church, an nounced his candidacy for the United States senate to succeed Senator Raw Una Mr. Smoot said in part: "There are some who have criticised the sug gestion of an apostle's accepting the honor should it be tendered, but I de sire to state that I was a Republican beftrj I was an apostle.” - - - - - - r-.' ' Silver In Relation to Trade. Archibald McKUlop arrived at Hono lulu recently by the Coptic from Manila and China. He says the whole Orient is suffering from the depression and fluctuation In sUver. Business is in a bad way in Manila and China especially on this account. Merchants seek to pro tect themselves from the depression by oharging higher prices for their goods. Wages and salaries, however, do not go np as the value of silver goes down, and in oousequenoe the purchasing ability of large classes of consumers is checked. This brings about depression in retail trade, which speedily affects more gen eral trade. The gold standard applied to the PhiUppines would, in his jndg ment, cure matters there, but he doe not see how the gold standard can be introduced into China Much rain has fallen recently in east ern Washington and Idaho, making a large yield of grain almost certain, even should no more rain fall before harvest. Mrs. Oollis P. Huntington, says a New York dispatch, has offered, for patho logical purposes, 1100,000 to the General Memorial hospital for the treatment of caooir and silled diseases. ii A ^^ood for everything I that runs on wheels. I PRESSING THE IRRIGATION BILL. The following ii from the Washington Post of the 19th inst.: “Daring the lest week there has been mach activity on the part of those favoring the irrigation bill, which has paaeed the Senate and has been reported to the House with modifications. Speaker Henderson bos promised a day for taking up the bill, and after a careful canvass of the House it is believed it will pass. The leaders are opposing the bill, but it has a great deal of strength on the Re publican side and a very large portion of the Democratic votes. There has been a persistent campaign of education in be half of the irrigation plan, which in volves the allotment of lands made fer tile by irrigation to bona fide settlers, who would be required through deferred payments to reimburse the government. One strong argument is that it does not take money directly from the treasury, but provides for using the proceeds from the sale of public lands for the storing of water and the conveyance of the same to arid tracts. There will undoubtedly be a strong opposition, and if the bill passes it will be by Democratic votes. The Democrats are cleverly claiming much of the credit for suporting it, which would give them popularity in the far western States. •m Mnatac* la oi«l Age. Prof. Jowett, the great master of Bal liol College, commenting on the crucial topic of growing old, wrote to a friend: "The later years of life appear to me. from a certain point of view, to be the best. They are less disturbed by care and the world; we begin to understand that things really never did matter so much as we supposed, and we are able to see them more in their true proportion instead of being overwhelmed by them. We are more resigned to the will of God, neither afraid to depart nor over-anxious to stay. We cannot see into another life, but we believe with an inextinguish able hope that there is something still reserved for us."
