STRIKING LIKENESS i
OF RUSSIA TO AMERICA
Instances of Resemblances
Between These Countries.
HER RAPID DEVELOPMENT
Russia’s Industrial Progress Is Due to
Her System of Eduration, Which la
Kashioned After That of the United
States—Other Foreign News.
St. Petersburg, Dec. 24.—Reflective
observers discover numerous resemb
lances between Russia aud America
which are uot accidental nor mere coin
cidences. One such resemblance is the
liberality of people of wealth toward
public institutions. This liberality, al
most foreign to the nations with which
Russia has borrowed most, is the
product, in part, of the same conditions
which have lavished private wealth upon
the American universities and technical
Although Russia is tn some respects
going to school in America, she is able,
through the generosity of private citi
zens, to give lessons in some matters.
An instance is afforded by the Baron
Stieglitz School of Applied Arts in this
city. It could easily be taken as a model
by the patrons of the industrial arts in
the United States who are trying to re
unite the beautiful and useful.
This school was established in 1879
with an endowment of 10,000,000 roubles,
or more than $5,000,000, which was given
by the will of Baron Alexander Stieg
litz. The minister of finance assumed
the administration of this fund, the ac
tive management has been entrusted to
friends of art and to artists.
The school opened with small at
tendace and few classes in 1881. It has
been steadily growing and enlarging its
field ever since. The museum was
opened in 1896.
The buildings, which cost almost 1,-
000,000 roubles, are admirably adapted
to the purpose for which they are desig
nated. The school and the museum are
practically all under the same roof. The
school has 33 teachers and 300 students.
An annual exhibition of the work of the
school is given every January. The
plan of instruction is liberal.
There is a four years’ course in sci
ence and language, including religious
instruction, literature, elementary ge
ometry, the theory of shades and per
spective, Russian history, general his
tory and the history of the fine arts and
appliances, elementary chemistry and
technology, the methodics of drawing,
practical aesthetics and the French and
Tne school is under the general direc
tion of M. Kotofif, and the museum is
under the charge of M. Oarbonier.
The result of this investment is that
instead of procuring all tlieir furniture
aud articles of vertdi and bric-a-brao
from France and England, as used to
be the case, the wealthy Russians are
now patronizing home talent to a large
extent. Side by side with the shops of
I imported goods may be found large at
eliers for every sort of decoration.

Chattanooga, Dec. 24.—Although his
stomach was removed by the doctor, Al

About a mouth ago Housdorf, while
working as a machinist in a local .-hop,
sustained an internal injury which
caused him to suffer excruciating agony.
Dr. Berlin was called in and he saw that
it would require some heroic treatment
to save the man’s life. Housdorf was
removed to a hospital, where the opera
tion was performed.

I GREATLY OVERDRAWN'
What General Davis Says oi
SAYS THERE IS SUFFERING
Means of the Coffee Planters Reduced
by the Storm—Crop Damaged to the
Amount of $12,000,000 Treaty
Forwarded to London.
Washington, Dec. 24.—General Da
vis, when seen at the war department
concerning the report made public to
day by Dr. Williams, a contract surgeon
in the department of Porto Rico, setting
forth an appalling state of affairs among
the coffee planters in the island, said
that from his knowledge of affairs in
that section of Porto Rico, he should
characterize Dr. Williams’ statement as
much overdrawn and exaggerated.
That there was suffering in the coffee
plantings of the country, he had no
doubt. The heavy losses incurred by
the big hurricane, he said, could have
had no result other than to greatly re
duce the means of the planters who had
$12,000,000 worth of coffee swept away
by the big storm. When General Davis
was military governor of the island the
war department issued rations to the
people of Porto Rico, in order to help
weather over the evil effects of the hur
When the government passed under
civil administration, however, the
issuance of the rations was discon
tinued, as it was believed the islanders
had sufficiently recovered. The general
said that Dr. Williams was acting as
sistant surgeon in the department and
accompanied a small expedition under
command of Major Watt, Fifth cavalry,
which on a march across the island trav
ersed the coffee plantation region. The
doctor reported a bed state of affairs in
this section in the way of sickness and
want of food and was asked for a fuller
report by General Davis. This was
turned over to Governor Allen.
CONGER SIGNS AGREEMENT
Close of the Most Important Phase of
Washington, Dec. 24.—Secretary Hay
has received a cablegram from Minister
Conger, at Peking, announcing that he
had signed the agreement reported by
the foreign ministers, but had done so
with a written explanatory statement
setting forth the exact position of his
It is believed that the United Statei
also, while sanctioning the provisions of
the agreement relative to the mainten
ance of permanent lines of communica
tion, legation guards and prohibition of
the importation of arms into China, in
dicates clearly that constitutional rea
sons prevent the executive from making
any pledge to take part in the execution
of these plans.
The signature of the agreement by
the ministers closes what is regarded
here as the first, the most important
and the most difficult phase of the ne
gotiations as to China, for it is not
doubted that the Chinese envoys will
subscribe to the agreement without
TREATY SENT TO LONDON
it Is Submitted Without Comment on
Washington, Dec. 24.—The state de
partment decided to send the amend
ments to the Hay-Pauncefote treaty to
the British government today. The
state department will make no repre
sentation whatever as to the changes
made in the treaty; the senate amend
ments will be allowed to speak for them
selves, and the action of the department
in notifying them to the British govern
ment will be purely informal.
It is stated that there has been no ex
change whatever, either in the shape of
written notes or oral communications,
between the state department and the
governments of Nicaragua and Costa
Rica that has developed a threat on the
part of these governments to refuse as
sent to the construction of a canal in
view of the action of the United States
senate on the Hay-Pauncefote treaty.
United States Not Responsible.
Washington, Dec. 24.—The German
embassy has laid before the state de
partment the claims of a number of
German subjects for damages to their
interests in Cuba as a result of the Span
ish-American war and the insurrection
which led up to the war itself. This ac
tion of the German government has
raised a most important issue and the
department of state has given it tha
closest consideration. It has been con
cluded, however, that the United Stafef
government cannot accept responsibilit’
for the claims.
MacDonald Is Improving.
Washington, Dec. 24.—Samuel Mac-
Donald, the treasury clerk who shot and
killed Frank H. Morris, auditor for the
war department, Saturday, and then
attempted suicide, was reported to be
better today. Last night he had a sink
ing spell and it was thought at the hos
pital that he could not survive until
CHARLOTTE SHOWS BIG GAIN

of Over 1,000.
Charlotte, N. C., Dec. 24.—This city
showed a gain of over 50 per cent in
population by the federal census, the
city being rated at 18,091. The count
was restricted, of course, to the territory
within the city limits. The new cotton
mills and suburban towns built in the
past ten years join the city closely, be
ing divided only by the corporate lim

Young Lady Left at Home Alone Dis
appeared During Her Sister’s Ab
sence—Posse is Searching For the
Pueblo, Colo., Dec. 24.—Maggie Hoel
has been missing since about 3 o’clock
Saturday afternoon and it is feared that
she has been murdered.
The girl, who was about 18 years old,
lived with her sister, Mrs. Charles
Beatty, in a lonely spot about 37 miles
west of the city. On Saturday Mrs.
Beatty left Maggie in charge of her lit
tle child at her home. Upon her return
two hours later her sister was gone and
the baby was alone in the house.
Indications about She premises led to
the immediate suspicion that the girl
had been taken from htr home by force.
There were evidences of a struggle and
in the yard were feund the foot
of a man evidently of large silWHWui
weight. The foot prints led to the di
rection of the Arkansas river and at
some places along the trail appeared the
E tints of smaller shoes such as Maggi« L
loel wore. At other places the trail in-11
dicated that the girl was dragged or car- ”
ried along by her captors.
Near the river bank where the ground
is harder all traces were lost.
A lango number of men have been
searching, but the girl has not yet been

HAS IDENTIFIED PAT CROWE
He Is the Man Who Made Inquiries
Omaha, Dec. 24.—A man whose name
the police refuse to reveal has identified
Pat Crowe as the light complexioned in
dividual in company with a wo
man, accosted him in the vicinity of the
robbers’ rendezvous relative to the own
ership of the house to which young Ed>>
ward Cudahy was carried by
last Thursday night.
When shown a picture taft'en from the
rogue’s gallery of Crowe Chis man stated
positively that it was a jierfect likeness
of the man he saw at Thirty-sixth and
r Grover streets. Questioned closely as
to the man’s conduct, his manner and
general description, he gave a detailed
statement which convinces the authori
ties that they are on the right track.
The man states that while negotiating
