To say that this crowd was disap pointed is telling no lie. It is bad lines for 300 rooters to go from home to see their favorites made monkeys of by an eleven that is one of their bitterest rivals on the gridiron. This is what the followers of the Warren saw yesterday.

Seattle, Wash., Oct. 30. —The steamer Portland, which has arrived here from St. Michael's, brings additional particu lars of the whaling fleet of eight vessels that is imprisoned by ice in the Arctic Ocean. The total number of men on tlie whalers is 300. It is known that all the vessels where short of provisions, as they had expected to return to San Franoisco this month. The steam whalers Orica, Belvidere, Jesse H. Freeman, and the schooner Rosario were last heard of on September 13, when they were solidly imbedded in a mass of ice caked along the shore at Point Barrow. The crew were seen sledding to shore with such small pro visions as they had. There is a hope that they may be able to secure suffici ency of food at Point Barrow, as there is a trailing post there, owned by the North American Trading Company. The sup ply, however, is not supposed to be very good, and largely consists of flour. Tlie men who have mostly to fear star vation are those on the steamers New , . ...... port and peerless, tlie bark Wanderer, and the Pacific Steam Whaling Conl . | pany's tender Jennie. They are farther to j tlie eastward, and are supposed to be ice bound about 260 miles from Point Bar Chicago, Oct. 30.—The National Busi- j League, of which Ferdinand W. Peck of Chicago, \* Present, has sent a letter to President McKinley, request-1 ing hi... in l.is message to Congress to call attention to the matter of the estab lishment of a department of the Govern-! ment to he called the Department of Commerce and Industry, which shall gather information with a view to tlie systematic extension of our commerce with tlie Soutli and Central American row.

The President is re quested to recommend to Congress legis lation to accomplish the object. A com mittee has been in communication witli most of tlie National, State, and munici pal business organizations throughout the country, and tlie responses being unanimously favorable, it is stated, justify the League in saying that the business men of the country are prac tically a unit in the demand for the new Department.

Special to The Sex. Philadelphia, Oct. 30.— Investigation here discloses the fact that a fake lottery has been in operation for some time, and that its operations have been gradually extended until they reached considerable proportions. The principals, who are well known lottery and policy backers of this city and Wilmington, Dei., are now keeping shady, and the government officials are now gathering evidence pre paratory to making arrests. The scheme is said to have been con ceived in Wilmington, and the unquali fied assertion has been made here that the principals in the matter are now and for some time have been, under constant surveilance. The plant in wtiich the tickets, draw ings, etc., are printed lias been located in Wilmington, and employes of the establishment stand ready to testify if called upon to do so by the Federal au thorities. That the Louisiana State Lottery had its tickets printed in Wilmington for many years is well known to all the secret service men, but it is quite as well known to them that the plant which executed the work of the Louisiana State Lottery has not printed anything like a lottery ticket for years. It was this fact that led to tlie discovery of the smaller plant now printing the tickets for tlie fake concern which is doing busi ness under a dozen titles and in as many places. The present investigation is the result of certain telegrams from New Orleans, where, it was asserted, the old Lmiisi . ,, , , ana Lottery Company l.ad re-established itfl headquarters. A careful survey of the field developed tlie fact that the old company, now known as the Honduras Lottery Company, really had established offices at New Orleans and a branch con cern at Bay St. Lewis, Miss., from which points a more or less profitable business was being conducted. The yellow fever drove the employes away from their deskg and t hns suspended, for the time ^ a „ 0 „ the pa , t of the . , ""IW- The fake concerns, however, thrived. This fact proved conclusively that the executive offices of tlie promo ters of this scheme to steal were located north of the fever district, and the in vestigation startnl at Washington. To trace the tickets bought in tho capital city to Wilmington nnd from Wilmington to this city was easy and cnd cappers for the game sought seclu sion in neighboring states. to-day things became so warm that sev That tlie tickets are printed in Wil mington; that the printer is interested in the company and that a Philadelphia policy backer is peddling out tlie slips to agents in Baltimore, Washington, Chi cago, Pittsburg and this city is a cer tainty and exciting developments may be looked for at any moment. Mississippi Involved. Special to Tm Sun. Bay St. Louis, Miss., Oct. 30. —Govern ment secret service officials have been here for several weeks investigating the alleged operations of the Honduras Lot tery, the successor of the Great Louisiana Lottery, whicii is said to be maintaining an office here, and to have openly re sumed business. Tlie company's office is now closed, and deserted. The yellow fever having caused its removals. There is mueh excitement overthe investigation one arrest lias already been made. Those who profess to know assert that tlie Company's business is entirely trans acted in Honduras, nnd tiint no United States authorities have jurisdiction. It is also said that the Honduras Lot tery Company has been chartered by tlie Honduras government. E. R. Todd, of New Castle, was in Wil mington yesterday. A GASOLINE BLAZE.

New York, Oct. 30. —After being ar raigned eight times in the Harlem Court on the charge of having stabbed his wife, Augustus Cook, an actor, who used to play the part of Napoleon, in the "Sans Gene" company, was this morning discharged from custody by Magistrate Cornell. Cook's wife, Evelyn, had charged him with intimacy witli women, and she said he had stabbed her. She was found with stab wounds, but an ambulance surgeon was not allowed to see her. Site was removed to the home of her father at No. 205 West Seventy-third street. William Hall, the father of the woman, said his daughter was likely to die, and asked that Cook be not hailed. Cook was remanded without bail. The woman's reason for not appearing is said to be dread of publicity. Cook said that in the quarrel she had wrong fully accused him and spat in his face. After lie had been arraigned six times he Wits admitted to bail in $1,000. Cook is said to have lost a three years contract with August:n Daly through the quarrel. TLo Love, lug Inquiry. Washington, Oct. 30. —General Miles, in his capacity of Acting Secretary of War, has received by mail from General Brooke, commanding the Department of Missouri, the report of the Court of In quiry, which he appointed by direction of Secretary Alger, to investigate the charges made against Captain Lovering, of the 4th Infantry, of ill-treating Private Hammond. In view of the fact that the inquiry was really ordered by Secretary Alger, who feels a personal interest in the matter, General MilcB states that lie will withhold tlie report of the Court from publication until the Secretary returns to Washington or directs otherwise. It is believed here that the Court has found sufficient grounds for court-iiiartialling Captain Lovering. Harrington.

Mr. Barlow returned before he had se cured any plunder and grappled with him, but the negro succeeded in free ing himself and escaping. D. E.
