London,Sept. 22.—While Mr. Kruger
_. and Dr. Leyds are drawing up peti
tions to President Roosevelt and the
czar, asking them to intervene, the
IW fighting Doers are helping themselves
Sena’South Africa by celebrating the ex
erv-(iration of the period in which Lord

render by four notable successes, kill
P ing 68 officers and men, wounding 63
and capturing five guns and 800 men.
|- Recalls Two Year* Ago.
The situation is singularly like the
opening of the war, two years ago,
the names of the same places recur
in the dispatches. Utrecht, where
.■dSniU Gough was entrapped, was the
scene of a similar ambushcade IS
months back. Acton Homes, where
the Boers, Friday, reappeared, is IS
miles southwest of Ladysmith, prom
inent in the early hostilities, and the
Natal colonials are mustering for the
defense of the Tugela, as when Gen.
Joubert invaded Natal in 1899.
Fighting in Carfe Colony.
i_^ I*1 Cape Colony, fighting is again
on south of Stormberg, in ter
ritory traversed by raiders and their
pursuers half a dozen times.
The government’s publication of
thefee reverses causes an outburst of
exasperation against the conduct of
the war, not in South Africa but by
the ministry. The great ministerial
journals accuse the government of
trying to run the war “on the cheap”
by not providing Lord Kitchener with
Lack of Organized l'.flfori.
The Times, while it has no misgiv
ings as to the final issue, accuses the
home authorities oi lack of organized,
sustained effort, of a disposition to
postpone military for financial con
siderations, and of failure to grasp
e* moral and intellectual damage
wlif%h the prolongation of the strug
gle mftiefs on 1ho empire. Other min

months which should have been spent
in preparing for another campaign
were wasted in electioneering, and

AT THE TOMB OF M’KINLEY.
Th oils mills Visited VVcutlinvn Ceme
tery Venterdny—Mrs. McKinley
Hold i iin' Her Own.
Canton, O., Sept. 23.—Dr. Rixcy said
j last evening that there had been no
material change in the condition of
Mrs. McKinley, and that she was do
ing as well as could be expected, lie
“She went out for two hours’ driv
ing yesterday and still seems to be
holding her own.”
Yesterday’s drives were taken in
the family carriage, an open surrey,
which llie president had sent on from
Washington for use during the sum
mer vacation. Dr. Rixey and Mrs. C.
Barber accompanied Mrs. McKinley.
The first trip was to the cemetery,
yesterday morning, and it was taken
at the request of Mrs. McKinley.
A much longer drive, was taken dur
ing the afternoon at the suggestion
of the doctor, who feels that .his pa
tient is benefited by all the outdoor
life she can stand and can be induced
to take. These outings have always
had a tendency to produce sleep and
rest and to increase the appetite foi
her, and they now have that effect
to a degree at least. Tt is understood
that Mrs. McKinley is securing fairly
good rest in the midst of her sorrow
There was placed on the McKinley
casket, yesterday, by Judge William
R- Day a large floral wreath from
the emperor of Russia. Judge Day re
ceived a telegram from Charge de Af
faires De Wollante of the Russian em
bassy' at Washington, requesting him
to have this wreath placed on the
casket of the late president. It is
oval in shape and seven feet byr six
It is composed, on one side, of Ameri
can Beauty' roses, and on the other
side of orchids. The base is of Sage
palms, the entire wreath being inter
spersed with small cocoa ferns, tied
with orchid satin ribbon.
The resting place of the late presi
dent was visited by thousands of peo
ple, yesterday, probably over twenty
thousand persons entering the gates
of Westlawn cemetery between the
early hours of the morning and the
late hours of the evening. The at
tractions were the floral tributes sent
for the funeral which have been ar
ranged on either side of the vault
They are still in a very good state
of preservation, and probably will be
for several days longer.
The guard of regular soldiers pa
trolled a very wide circle around the
vault and the flowers yesterday sc
that a long line could view the flowers
at one time, and thus they prevented
A number of beautiful flowers were
also placed on the graves of the Mc
Kinley children, which are also pro
tected by a patrol of soldiers. Many

to the private lot, many also climbed

Hut Columbia .Must Do Her Jlest oi
Shamrock Will Carry Olt
New York, Sept. 23.—Saluted by
scores of vessels as she was towed
through the East river yesterday
morning, the cup defender Columbia.
Hying the pennant of the New York
5 aelit club at her masthead, looked
every inch the racing craft that she is,
The Columbia reached the Morse iron
works, in Brooklyn, at noon, and at
one o’clock she was floated into the
sectional dock, astern of the steamer
Old Dominion, in two hours the yacht
was high and dry and blocked up in
position for her last cleaning before
the great international race.
Stages were slung all around her
before dark, and early this morning a
gang of men were put to work burn
ishing her bronze hull.
The yacht had many visitors yes
terday', among them several yachts
men. It was learned that the Colum
bia is using the old defender’s boom
and mainsail with which she won the
trial races at Newport. It is not like
ly that any change will be made in
either the boom or the sail until aftei
the first race.
It is safe to say that fully 5,000 peo
ple visited the Shamrock 11. at the
Erie Basin dry dock yesterday.
Expert opinions were not lacldne
from both those who had visited the
defender and the challenger. Formei
Commodore John C. Prague, who ha;
won more races with his yachts in the
old days than any other, said*
“I like the shape of the Shamrock
and if her sails are as good as the
Columbia’s she will win the cup. lie;
rigging is strong and her mast is ir
the right place. Another good feature
is that her boom comes down close tc
the deck. She looks bigg'er all ovet
than the Columbia, and I feel sure sin
is a fast boat.”
From Motion to Money.
There is, or rather was, years ago in this
city, a gentleman who did a thriving busi
ness in mutton in the market district, and
was well known to hundreds of people as a
bright and original sort of man. Another
man, who had not seen him for nearly 20
years, met him a short time ago, and after
inquiries as to his health asked if he was
in the same business.
“Oh, no,” was the reply. “I’m presiding
The man who was inquiring about him was
really phased by this answer, and remarked
that he presumed it was his ignoi-ance, but
he must admit he derived no idea of his
business from the statement that the for
mer market man “was presiding.”
“Why,” he replied, “I mean that I am a
president—president of a bank in Cam
