OUR MEN OF WAR TAKE THREE

Kaiserlicher Yacht Club, Kiel, July 1.—The American men of warsmen won a first, a second and a third prize in the races against the boats of the German fleet. The Americans had four boatB entered in three events, while the Germans had 37, and the American crews were not familiar with the course and had not especially trained for the occasion. The United States cruiser Chicago's sailing cutter, entered by Midshipman Stephen C. Rowan, won Prince Henry's prize tor warships' cutters in a competition with the cutters of the German ships Freya, Hohenzollern, Frauenlob, Ariadne, Glitz and Hagen. The sailing launch of the United States cruiser San Francisco, entered by Ensign George W. Steele, Jr., won the prize In the race for warships' launches. The launch of the German turret ship Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse was second, and that of the flagship Kearaarge, entered by Lieutenant Henry C. Mustin, was third. Launch Contest Was Close. More than 100 sailing launches cov ered the lower bay, for, beside the boats against which the American crews raced, 80 German boats took part in seven other events. The closest contest, and one which attracted most attention from the Germans, was that between the large launches. Lieuten ant Mustin led after the first quarter of a mile and gradually increased his lead until near the finish, when he was one eighth of a mile ahead of the San Francisco launch. Then what was probably a civilian's yacht, which was running obliquely, yelled something unintelligible to Lieutenant Mustin and a few moments later the stranger's bowsprit ran through the rail of the Kearsarge's launch, tearing away part of it Before th«r two boats could be disentangled the San Francisco's launch passed and a hundred yards behind her was the launch of the Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse. Lieuten ant Mustin and Ensign Steele both out sailed the German boats in turning the mark buoys, gaining several seconds on each turn. The German crews cheered the American winners heartily. Emperor Gives Prizes. The emperor presented the prizes to the winners at the Yacht club In the shape of personal gifts to the officers commanding the launches. Ensign Steele received a silver cup. "I hope you will drink many a bumper out of it," said Emperor Will iam, handing it to him. Lieutenant Mustin and Midshipman Rowan, who sailed the Chicago's small cutter, re ceived silver cigarette boxes. Admiral Cotton 8ays Farewell. In bidding Emperor William fare well on board the Hohenzollern Rear Admiral Cotton, on behalf of the cap tains and officers of his squadron, said they would carry away with them never to be forgotten memories of the hospitality and courtesy that had been shown them during their stay here. The emperor replied that the visit had been charming to him personally, and he hoped it would be enduring in its impression on the friendship between the two nations. , . Admiral Cotton and the captains of the American ships at night attended a dinner given by the yacht club in honor of the emperor, and sat with his majesty and Ambassador Tower in the garden for an hour witnessing a display of rockets by the combined fleets and the playing of the vesselss searchlights. Boxing by Yankees. The Jackies on the Kearaarge gave a minstrel show and boxing exhibition. Twenty men and four officers from each of the German ships were pres ent. It was the first time that many of the German sailors had seen box ing. Visit the Kearaarge. Kiel, July 1.—The United States squadron received about 1000 guests on board the flagship Kearaarge, prin cipally German naval officers and visit ing Americans. Mr. Meyer, the United States am bassador to Italy, lunched with Emper or William on the Hohenzollern. The emperor again sent to Allison Armour to inquire if he would not dock his yacht, which was damaged in col lision with the steamer Dobrogea Fri day, at the government yard, but Mr. Armour declined for the present, as the yacht is not disabled. Mr. Ar mour will accompany the emperor on the latter's yacht Meteor to Eckern forde. Kaiser at Tennis Match.

Lieut. McCue a Bigamist. Chicago, July 1.—Lieutenant Will iam McCue of the United States army is confronted with a charge of big amy. Several days ago he arrived at a Chicago hotel with a bride of two weeks. The bride was Miss Vida Si mon of San Francisco, who was near ly prostrated when she heard that an other woman claimed to be the lieu tenant's wife. McCue left the hotel and the bride, believing that she had been deserted, made arrangements to return to her home in San Francisco. A few min utes before midnight McCue returned, stating he had spent the day at Fort Sheridan. The bride in the meantime had left the hotel, and up to a: late hour McCue had not been able to find her. He positively denies the charge of bigamy. About the time the lieutenant was bidding his bride goodby apd telling her that he would return soon, a wo man in Cincinnati, who said she is his wife, informed the chief of police there that he had contracted a biga mous marriage. She said her wedding took place while McCue was an en listed soldier stationed at Fort Thomas. The exposure was brought on when Lieutenant McCue asked his new father in law to send cards an nouncing the wedding to the woman in Cincinnati who now claims to be his wife. She has been living there under the name of Ida Westcott and had corresponded regularly with Mc Cue until 1900. McCue and his bride arrived here nine days ago. She said that he told her they were going to Fort Porter, N. Y., where his regiment had been assigned to duty. Baseball Dull In Portland. Tacoma, Wash., July 2.—The Pacific National league magnates have com pleted their deliberations and ad journed, apparently in a very happy frame' of mind. The Portland fran chise was transferred officially to Salt Lake City, and Portland is no more a factor in the league. The team will play today as Salt Lake City, and will start in with a clean record of games won and lost and go through the re mainder of the season on their own merits. Jack grim will continue as manager of the Salt Lake club until such time as Salt Lake desires to make a change. Wrecked at Madrid.

BY A COLORED METHODIST PREACHER OF WILMINGTON. rla Denounced the Lynching of Ne groes by Whites—Calls It Heathen Ish—Would Rather Be in Den of Hyenas ae In Hands of White Men— Thousands Vielt White's Grave. Wilmington, Del., June 29.—The Rev. M. W. Thorton (colored), pastor of the First African Methodist Episco pal church of this city, preached a sensational sermon to his congrega tion Sunday night. He said in part The white-man, in face of his boast ed civilization, stands before my eyes tonight the demon of the world's races, a monster Incarnate, and, in so far as the negro is concerned, seems to give no quarter. The white man Is heathen, a fiend, a monstrosity before God, and is equal to any act in the category of crime. I would as soon trust myself in a den of hyenas as in his arms. With a court, law and of ficers of the law in his hands the de spised negro can expect no mercy, jus tice or protection. The negro is un safe anywhere in this country. He is the open prey at all times of barbar ians who know no restraint and will not be restrained. "There is but one path left for the persecuted - negro when charged with crime and when innocent. Be a law unto yourself. You are taught by this lesson of outrage to save yourself from torture at the hands of the blood seeking public. Save your race from insult and shame. Be your own sheriff, court and jury, as was the outlaw Tracy. Die in your tracks, perhaps drinking the blood of your pursuers. Booker T. Washington's charity, hu manity, advice of forgiveness, love, in dustry and so on will never be recipro cated by white men." Thousands of persons Sunday visited the place where George F. White, the negro, was burned to death last Mon day night by a mob for the murder of Miss Helen Bishop. TRADE REPORT. Bradstreet's report says: Crop and labor conditions present some irregu larities, but six months' trade returns point to the fact that business has been better than a year ago and the situa tion as a whole shows favorable fea tures predominating as to the future. The feeling is that as time passes the latter will largely outweigh the few notable drawbacks to possible future activity. Unseasonable weather and dull retail trade accentuates the usual quietness in wholesale business and retards crop development. The iron and steel situation on the whole seems to have improved slight ly. Large contracts have been made for rails by leading trunk lines and central western reads. The condition of other finished products is better, and even in cruder forms the feeling is fairly firm except for foundry pig iron. The railroad earnings are bet ter than was earlier expected, despite flood interruptions in the first part of the month, and returns for the first week of June show a gain of 9 per cent over a year ago, while those for the second and third week indicate increases of 10 to 12 per cent in ex cess of last year. Wool is firmer, largely in sympathy with primary markets where the new clip is being taken freely at advanc ing prices. Hides are firmer at Boston. Sugar is steady and unchanged. Wheat, including flour, exports for the week aggregate 3,518,152 bushels. Business failures in the United States for the week numbered 171. Coast Wheat Report.

Wilbur, Wash., July 1.—Wade B. Cole, a prosperous rancher, about 35 years of age, committed suicide at his place northwest of Hesseltine, about 18 miles from Wilbur. His body was found hanging by a strap from a small sapling about 100 yards from his home. His feet were touching the ground and his knees were slightly bent. His affairs were in a very prosperous condition, as he was left about $4000 by Gordon, his neighbor, who was blown up by dynamite about six months ago. This, with the prop erty he already owned, made him com paratively wealthy. His parents are still living in Virginia. He leaves a wife and infant child about 6 \ weeks old. In this year's graduating class at the University of Chicago the average age of the boys is 23 and that of the girls is 26. If so then your system is out of balance, and there is a flaw somewhere in your constitution, and a possibility that you are losing health, too. The falling off in weight maybeslight, but itmakes a wonderful change in one's looks and feelings, and Unless the building up process is begun in time, vitality and strength are soon gone and health guickly follows. If you are losing weight there is a cause for it. Your blood is deteriorating and becoming too poor to properly nourish the body, and it must be purified and enriched before lost weight is regained. It requires something more than an ordinary tonic to build up a feeble constitution, for unless the poisons man an ordinary tonic to huila up a feeble constitution, for unless the poisons and germs that are lurking in the blood are destroyed, they will further im poverish the blood and weaken the system, and you continue to lose weight.
