POLITICIANS SURPRISED Afternoon Papers Vigorously Assail the Appointment—lt Was Made With the Queen’s Approval—Carlists Are Active—Other Foreign News. London, Oct. 31. The Marquis of Lansdowne’s elevation to the foreign secretaryship, according to the an nouncements in the newspapers this morning, has, figuratively speaking, taken the country’s breath away. It was as unexpected as it was unwelcome. Even the staunchest Ministerial mouth pieces among the afternoon newspapers condemn the appointment. The Globe declares the appointment only shows Lord Salisbury is completely out of touch with the feelings and wishes of the electorate and the Con servative party, while the Liberal West minster Gazette, crowing over the dis comfiture of the Ministerial newspapers which have been so loudly demanding the retirement of Lord Lansdowne, ex presses relief at the fact that Joseph Chamberlain was not given the post, saying: “The latter’s appointment would have filled thoughtful people with dismay and it is something to have escaped this se rious danger. ” Lord Salisbury, apparently, arranged matters with the queen at Balmoral a week ago. His lordship’s own inclina tion was to resign the premiership and devote himself exclusively to the foreign office. He wrote her majesty to this effect, but she declined to accept the suggestions. Lord Salisbury, therefore, went to Balmoral to discuss the ques tion, with the result that the queen car ried her point. Public anxiety is to some extent re lieved by the conviction that Lord Salis bury’s experience will still be available to direct the broad lines of policy of the prospective foreign minister. ADVENT OF NEW CENTURY. Buddhists Arranging For a Great Cel ebration Commemorating Occasion. Seattle, Wash., Oct. 31.—According to Oriental advices the Buddhists are making great arrangements to celebrate the beginning of the new century by active missionary work. The recent ar rival of some sacred relics from Siam was made the occasion of an extraordi nary demonstration of devotion to their faith. The roads over which the relics were borne were covered with cloth, which was afterward sold in small pieces at more than ten times its value, realizing over 62,000 yen. They propose to collect 1,000,000 yen and to erect a grand building as a re pository for their treasures. After this has been done they intend to turn their attention to charity and education. Carlists Are Active. Madrid, Oct. 31. —Several bands of Carlists have appeared in the north of Barcelona. Three priests have been ar rested in Barcelona in connection with the Carlist activity.

LIVELY FIGHT FOR SENATOR. North Carolina Contest Is a Spirited • One—Betting on the Result. j Charlotte, N. C., Oct. 31.—Tho sen atorial contest, which has narrowed down to General Julian S. Carr of Dur- • ham and F. M. Simmons, Democratic state chairman, is one of the most spir ited in the history of the Democratic party in this state. I Both are strong men and very popu lar. Each has a well organized working force and is making a thorough canvass 1 of the state. i Wagers are being freely offered on 5 the result. One of the peculiarities of the betting is that in one county where Simmons leads his friends are offering „ odds on his election, while in a Carr stronghold the opposite is the case. 1 The contest took on a new phase last • week when Colonel Waddill withdrew, 3 as he is one of the ablest men in the state and has a strong following. Since ’ his withdrawal both Carr and Simmons t have been making overtures to Waddill . to declare in his favor, but, like Grover . Cleveland, he maintains the strictest si lence. ; TO PREVENT SPECULATION. . Southern Cotton Spinners’ Association Working For Concentration. Charlotte, N. C., Oct. 31. The special committee appointed to put into operation the concentration plan among i the southern yarn spinners has issued a , letter to all members of the Southern Cotton Spinners’ association. The let ter states that there is not the slightest doubt as to the accomplishment and put ting into operation the “concentration” providing the southern mills will at once co-operate. In the plan for concentration it is pro posed to exact of those into whose hands this business shall be concentrated, a guarantee that they will eliminate the speculative idea and conduct the busi ness on a purely commission basis. It is a well known fact that the disastrous results of commission houses speculat ing with southern yarns, causes a greater financial loss to the manufacturer than the actual commission charges for sell ing his goods. DUBIGNON ON THE ELECTION Democratic State Chairman Believes Bryan Will Be Elected. Savannah, Oct. 81.—Hon. Fleming G. dußignon has just returned from a short business trip to New York. While there he witnessed the demonstration on Friday night to Governor Roosevelt and on Saturday night to Mr. Bryan. He says that the Bryan demonstration far exceeded, both in numbers and en thusiasm, that given to the Republican candidate. He said that within the past ten days there had been a marked change in pub lic sentiment and that many who a week ago thought Bryan had no chance of election had changed their views on the subject. Mr. dußignon says that De mocracy has unquestionably made great gains all through the east. He heard while in New York some very encourag ing news from Illinois and feels that Bryan’s chances are improving every day.

MAKES TWO ADDRESSES First Is to a Large Gathering at the Hotel—ls Then Driven to the Park. Where Thousands Awaited His Com ing—Mayor Jones Also Speaks. Toledo, 0., Oct. 31.—Colonel and Mrs. Bryan arrived in this city at 9 o’clock this morning, coming direct from Dunkirk, N. Y. They were met at the railroad station by Mayor and Mrs. Jones. Bryan was conveyed to the Boody House by the mayor, while Mrs. Bryan was conveyed to the mayor’s residence for a brief reception. Beginning at 10 o’clock Mr. Bryan made a speech of an hour’s duration in Armory park here, leaving immediately afterward on his day’s tour of the state. He was received by cheers from a big crowd gathered about the depot when he left his car and also found a large number of people grouped about the ho tel when he reached it. They cheered heartily. Before proceeding to the park Mr. Bryan made a brief speech to the crowd assembled in front of the Boody House, telling them simply that he was pleased to see so many people out so early in the morning. At the park he was greeted by several thousand persons, who cheered heartily when he entered in company with Mayor Jones. The mayor was in troduced to make the first speech. Mr. Bryan followed, making a strong appeal' to those present to support the Demo cratic ticket. Bryan on the Trusts. While Mr. Jones was talking 50 or 60 boys congregated together in a part of the park separated from the main crowd and kept up such a clamor that it be came necessary for the police to disperse them. 1 Mr. Bryan was introduced by Mayor Jones and he said he was proud to bo presented by a man to whom duty was a higher consideration than was any party. Taking up the question of non partisanship Mr. Bryan said that not only were former Republicans coming over, but that gold Democrats were coming back. This, he said, was the natural result of political conditions and of the Republican party’s persistent dis regard of the rights of the people at large. Mr. Bryan took up the question of trusts, declaring that the utterances of both President McKinley and Governor Roosevelt showed them to be more in terested in protecting what they called the good trusts than in suppressing the bad trusts. He said that if times got hard the corporations would cut down wages rather than reduce their divi dends. He would make it impossible for a private monopoly to live under the American flag and if elected president all the power vested in the executive should be used to that end. This senti ment was vigorously cheered and there were cries of “Bravo.” Philippines and the Army. Speaking of the standing army, Mr. Bryan declared that if the Repub lican ticket was elected there would never lie a smaller standing national force than the present. He declared that the Republicans were not prepared to defend their foreign policy and he gave the following as a resume of all the Republican speeches on tho Philip pines question: “We are sorry we have the Philippine islands. They came to us by accident. We are sorry we have them, but we cannot let go of them. It looks as if God had sent us there; it looks as if wo were following the leadings of a Divine hand, and besides there’s money in it.” That, he said, was the gist of all the Republican speeches on the subject. He declared that it was neither righteous nor wise to coerce the Filipinos and he thanked God that ho had so firmly linked together that which is wise and that which is right, that they cannot be torn asunder, asserting that the presi dent was exceeding the powers con ferred by the constitution. Soldiers to Winter at Key West. Key West, Oct. 81.—Several officials from Washington have been here for some days preparing to locate a big army post near the fortifications.

Atlanta, Oct. 31.—The general as sembly won’t vote for Bryan and won*! investigate the truth of the report sub mitted by Adjutant General Byrd, wherein the adjutant general charges that the former conduct of the depart ment was marked by “criminal” negli gence. The house wanted to do the first, but the senate did not. And the senate wanted to do the last and the house did not. The senate sent to the house its reso lution providing for the appointment of a committee to investigate the truth of General Byrd’s report concerning Gen eral Kell’s administration of the mili tary department. And the house got even by turning that down. This ac tion, however, was not taken without a spirited contest. And only then after a number of members explained that General Byrd had emphatically declared that he meant no reflection upon the dead hero, and that the report was not, in fact, a reflection upon him, inasmuch as General Kell, as was well known, did not have personal charge of the de partment for a long time before his death, and was not responsible for its operation. STILL SEARCHING THE RUINS Several People Reported Missing Have Beeu Found. New York, Oct. 31. —Tho work of searching the ruins of buildings wreck ed by the explosion in Tarrant & Go’s drugstore on Monday was prosecute?! ' steadily all night. The force of men at work today numbers 800. About 4 o’clock a fresh outburst of fire occurred at Warreu and Greenwich streets stop ping for some time the work of clearing away the debris.

Barnes, an egg dealer, and William Halsey, employed by Barnes, who were reported missing, were found today. Barnes says that the Frances Barnes, egg chandler, reported is proba bly a fictitious person. He says he has made inquiry and can find no trace of any such person and be lieves that his name was confused with the other. If this is true the list of missing is thus reduced by three.

BOTHA WILLNOTSURRENDER While Admitting Defeat He Declines to Treat For Peace. London, Oct. 31.—A belated dispatch from Pretoria tells of the failure of the negotiations with General Botha for tho surrender of the Boers. Botha received General Paget’s flag of truce courteously and admittea iLi defeat, but said it was impossible to treat for surrender as long as any burgh ers wished to continue the war.
