Hay-Pauneefote Treaty—Death of Representative Wise—Opposition to the Shipping Bill. Washington, Dec. 21.—Instructions again went out today to Mr. Conger at Peking, tp sigu the agreement which, according to Peking advices, already has been signed by all the other minis ters at the Chinese capital. This in struction is sent with some reluctance, because the agreement, as it now stands, does not completely represent the view of the United States government. But it is believed the most favorable com promise that could be reached, unless the negotiations are to be drawn out ta a dangerous length, for all reports indi cate a growing spirit of unrest in China owing to the absence of any form of na tive government in Chi-Li and the ad jacent provinces. So the United States accepts the “irrevocable” condition im posed upon the Chinese government though, after all, this expression is rather a matter of form than of sub stance, for diplomacy knows no such thing as “irrevocable” ag ’eement. As to the British condition the con vention of Peking and Chi-Li is to con tinue until China has given sufficient proofs of her intention to comply with the conditions laid down in the agree ment, it is stated that this will not affect the status of the United States. Mr. Conger has, by direction of his gov ernment, notified the other ministers that the American forces will not again be called into China for the purpose of occupation, that nothing more than a legation guard is to be maintained by us and the powers have accepted this condition. It is, therefore, expected here that the agreement will be signed before the end of the current month. SENATOR HANNA WARNED Ship Subsidy Bill Cannot Pass In Its Present Shape. Washington, Qec. 21.-Senator Hanna has been warned by Senator Aldrich, one of the most powerful men in the senate when it comes to shaping legisla tion, that the ship subsidy bill, in which Hanna is so deeply interested, cannot pass the senate iu its present shape. It has also been intimated to the Ohio sen tor thatunless he changes his tactics very materially there will be little chance of getting any ship subsidy bill through at this session. The changes which Senator Aldrich and some of his associates propose to make in the bill are not expected to meet the approval of Senator Hanna and the interests ho represents. They are, in fact, dictated by interests un friendly to these which have been most active in pushing the present bill. Whether in the end Senator Hanna will agree to accept these amendments rath er than have no bill at all is a matter of speculation. In his present temper the Ohio senator would not accept these changes, but it is possible that in order to get the subsidy principle engrafted upon the statute books he will, when the time conies, accede. ATTENDANCE VERY LIGHT Repre-entatives Enroute Home For the Holiday Recess. Washington, Dec. 21.—When the house met today there were less than 100 members on the floor. The major ity of the members already had departed for their homes to spend the holiday re cess. Tiie chaplain in his invocation referred tenderly to the death of Mrs. Frye, wife of Senator Frye, and of Rep resentative Wise of Virginia. Bills were passed to fix the times for bolding the sessions of the district and circuit courts for the eastern district of Texas. Mr. Jones of Virginia then announced the death of Repri sentative Wise of Virginia. He offered the customary resolutions which were adopted and the speaker appointed a committee of seven to attend rhe funeral. At l’’:2s o'clock as a further mark of respect to rhe memory of the deceased the house adjourn; i until Jan. 3, 1901. HAY-PAUNG£FOTE TREATY It W ill Be i '<>< warded to the British <h vi ri in nt ; or Approval. Washington, Dec. 21. The Hay- Pauncefote treaty as amended and rati fied by the senate will be forwarded through the regular channels to the British government for its approval, and despite all talk to the contrary, the opinion prevails in administration cir cles that the British government will file no objections to the document iu its present shape. There seems to be no real warrant for the reports emanating from London and coming from here which indicate an altogether hostile feeling on the part of the high officials of the British govern ment. Senate Takes a Holiday Recess. Washington, Dec. 21.—N0 business was transacted by the senate today. The news of the death of Mrs. William P. Frye, wife of the president pro tern of the senate, was conveyed officially to the body, and out, of respect to her mem ory immediate adjournment was taken until Jan 3. 1901. Meantime a confer ence of senators had been held as to the order of business. The reading of the journal was suspended and at 12:05 o’clock the senate adjourned until Jah. 3, 1901. Mutiie pm tninpaign. Birmingham, Ala., Dec. 21.—The Bir mingham municipal campaign, which will end up practically with rhe’ Demo cratic, primary on Dec. 31 will be ex ceedingly interesting from now on as far as the 'position of chief of police and aldennanic honors go.

DETAILS OF HIS ESCAPE Surrounded by British Troopes He Broke Through the Line at Spring Nek With the Loss of Several Men and a 15-Pounder Captured. Bloemfontein, Dec. 21. —The details of General De Wet’s escape from the en circling British columns show that it was one of the boldest incidents of the war. When Haasbroeck’s command joined De Wet Dec. 12, some lo miles east of Thabauchu, General Knox was only about an hour distant and the Boer situation appeared desperate. But De- Wet was equal to the occasion. Dis patching Haasbroeck westward, to make a feint at Victoria Nek, DeWet pre pared to break through the British col umns at Spring Nek pass, about 4 miles of broad, flat, unbroken ground. At the entrance were two fortified posts, while artillery was posted eastward, watching the Boers. Suddenly a magnificent spectacle was presented. The whole Boer army of 2,500 men started at a gallop in open or der through the nek. President Steyn and Pete Fourie led the charge and De Wet brought up the rear. • The Brit ish guns and rifles boomed and rattled incessantly. The Boers first tried the eastward route, but encountering artil lery they diverged and galloped to the foot of the hill to the eastward wherd the fire of only a single post was effec tive. The whole maneuver was a piece of magnificent daring and its success was complete, in spite of the loss of a 15-pounder and 25 prisoners. The Brit ish force dispatched after Haasbroeck came in contact with his commando at nightfall. The burghers were scattered and the Welch yeomanry galloped among the retreating Boers, using their revolvers and the butt ends of their rifles with great effect. An incident of the fight w r as the gal lop of a British ammunition wagon right through the scattered Boers, the gunners using their revolvers freely. Arbitration Resolution Defeated. Darmstadt, Dec. 21.—8 y the presi dent casting his vote the second cham ber today defeated a motion to instruct the Hessian representatives in the bun desrath to propose the assemblage of the foreign affairs committee with the ob ject ot initiating a proposal for arbitra tion between Great Britain and the Transvaal. Twenty-two votes were cast each way. DEATH FROM HEART FAILURE Mrs. Frye Dies In Washington After a Prolonged Illness. Washington, Dec. 21.—Mrs. Wiliam P. Frye, wife of Senator Frye of Maine, died at the Hamilton hotel here at 9:40 o’clock this morning. Mrs. Frye had been ill for some time past. Heart failure is given as the immedi ate cause of death. Mrs. Fry* on Tuesday last suffered an acute attack of indigestion and had since been ill. When she arose this morning she was apparently much improved and partook of breakfast. Shortly after leaving the table the end came without the slightest warning. The body was taken on the 4:50 o’clock train this afternoon to Lewiston, Me., the home of Senator Frye. Heavy Demand For Coal. Birmingham, Ala., Dec. 21.—There is a scarcity of coal in this district, despite the fact that the mines are all running to their fullest capacities. So great is the demand that the Louisville and Nashville railroad is bringing 18 car loads of coal daily into the district from Kentucky. Mine operators say that the demand is more active now than it has ever been before. Jackson Given 20 Years. Savannah, Dec. 21.—Norman Jack son was found guilty of manslaughter by a jury in the superior court and sen tenced by Judge Falligant to serve 20 years in the penitentiary.

Columbus, Ga., Dec. 21.—A freight train was wrecked on the Southern rail way 4 miles above Williamsburg, Ga. The wreck was caused by running into a cow, the same cause of a recent freight wreck on the same branch of the South ern. The engine and 15 cars were derailed. Child Labor In South Carolina. Columbia, S. 0., Dec. 21.—Probably the hardest fight that will be made in the legislature that meets early in Jan uary will be on the question of child labor in the cotton factories. There are thousands of children working in South Carolina factories. Singular Death of a Young Lady. Melrose, Fla., Dec. 21.—Miss Newe Morrison, who has been visiting W. D.

FATALITIES WERE FEW Storm Was the Worst For Many Years. Reached Its Height During the Night—Wind Is Still High and th? Sea Heavy—Other Foreign News. London, Dec. 21.—The latest news of the Cutie reported yesterday off Sker ries, in need of assistance, while on her way from Queenstown to Liverpool in tow, is that she is still riding heavily at anchor 1 mile southwest of Skerries. The steamers Somerhill and Sunder land are now riding safely at anchor in West Bay, near Weymouth, after a fearful night. The coast guards were kept busy from’ nightfall to daylight. The storm appeared to have reached its height during the night and while the gale is still severe and the seas very heavy it is hoped the worst is over. Stories of wrecks and damage are com ing from all directions, but happily the fatalities are few. The coast guard had the rocket ap paratus in the vicinity of the storm beaten craft iu readiness to assist the ships, which were about. I mile from the shore. The Somerhill is apparently con siderably damaged and tugs have gone to her assistance. The British ship Clan MacFarlane, from Tocopila Oct. 2 for the channel, drifted on a sand bank nori h of South port. A lifeboat went out to her and found she had been abandoned. Her sails were blown to shreds and she probably will be a total wreck. Skibbereen reports a large steamer, the name of which had not been re ported, but which has a red funnel and black top, on the rocks of Sherkin island. She will be a total wreck. Her crew of 24 men are reported to have reached the shore. The Dominion line steamer New Eng land, which sailed yesterday from Liv erpool and this morning from Queens town for Boston, had such a bad time in the channel that part of her crew were injured. There were numerous minor wrecks. The gale lasted all night and blew at almost hurricance force at times. Tele graphic lines are down in all directions, communication with Scotland is cut off, the Mersey ferryboats have been sus pended and the channel passages have been the most tempestuous in years. The storm at Belfast and its neigh borhood was the most severe in a de cade. Great damage was done to prop erty, many persons were injured and Belfast Lough is crowded with vessels which have sought shelter from the wind’s fury. Aiisa Wald Ashore. Queenstowne, Dec. 21.—The steamer reported from Skibbareen to be ashore off Sherkin island is the British steamer Aiisa Wald, Captain Bevey, which sailed from Penar th Dec. 19 for Ber muda. The Aiisa Wald is a freight steamer and was built at West Hartle pool in 1894. She hails from Castle- On-Tvne and is owned bv Lunn & McCoy. FIFTEEN BOXERS KILLED. Waldersee Reports Operations, of the Germans In China. Berlin, Dec. 21.—A dispatch from Field Marshal Von Waldersee, dated Peking, Dec. 19, says: “Guendell’s column, marching from Shan-Hai-Kuau, successfully encount ered a force of Boxers Dec. 14 at Yung- Ling, near the eastern imperial tombs.

Schumpcrt Shoe Co, MOST REMARKABLE CASE IN MANY YEARS Os Interest to Fashionable Back Bay Circles. PUNISHED HER BETRAYER Young Girl Who Avenged Her Wrong I’arolled by Judge Bond—Mis Rogan Threw Vitrol In Dr. Taylor’s Kyes and Goes Free. Boston, Dec. 21.—The most remarka ble criminal case tried in a Massachu setts superior court in many years, and which aroused intense interest in the fashionable Back bay district, T as ended yesterday when Judge Bond pro bationed Marion Rogan, who had blind ed for life Dr. Frank L. Taylor, a dent ist, by throwing vitriol in his face out oi revenge for betrayal. The young girl had earlier appeared before the judge and told her pitiable story and showed the whitehaired justice her little babe, of which she claimed Taylor was the father. She said that Taylor, after ha had wrecked her life, had told her thal he was irresistible among women by reason of his good looks. In announcing his decision Judge, Bond said that from the e»l_ ap peared that Dr. Taylor had sought oul Miss Rogan, knowing she was a virtu ous woman, who had in no way wronged him, for the sole purpose of causing her ruin, and after he had ac complished it by fraud and deception and the use of intoxicating liquors, if not by drugs, he unfeelingly cast her off without assistance and advised her to resort to a life of prostitution, and even boasted of his disgraceful conduct with this young woman. “Such a man,” the judge added, ”i« so vile that I have no pity for him in his unfortunate condition.” Judge Bond said that he regretted Miss Rogan dill not leave the punish ment of her betrayer to a higher power than herself. As to the possibility that similar acts of personal vengeance would follow the probationing of this prisoner the judge said that such acts were so rare—none other having come before him in 40 years of his service on the bench —that he would take the risk and order the release of the prisoner on pro bation.
