THE FAIR WAS NOT HAZED The Story that Young Booze Was Hazed at West Point Not True. HE RESIGNED FOR FAILURE The Real Cause of His Resignation Vas Failure to Make His Grade Work. West Point, N. Y. Dec. 5 —Before the death of Oscar L Booz at Bristol, Pa. was announced today, Colonel A. L. Mills, superintendent of the military academy, made the following statement: "The manv statements made in the press of the country alleging that Oscar L. Booz was atrociously hazed while he was a cadet at the military academy to such an extent that he is now dying from its effects are untrue and ridiculous. Ex Cadet Booz was admitted to the military academy June, 1898, and resigned Oct. 3, 1898. He was on sick report but once, July 3o, when he was excused from the drills on account of diarrhoea. If he had been brutally beaten in a fight with an other cadet, or had his throat been in jured in the manner claimed, it would have been impossible for him to avoid sick report. The reason given for his resignation was weak eyes. His record shows he was in the last section in math ematics, and the marks he received to the date of resignation were deficient. I believe therein lies the real cause of his resignation, aud I think it most probable that stories of his alleged ill treatment arises from statements he has made in endeavoring to explain to his friends why he left the academy. Fusion Issue Dead. Washington, Dec. 5. —One of the prominent candidates for the United States senate from Nebraska, Editor Rosewater, of the Omaha Bee, when in Washington recently gave out an inver view on the local conditions in his state in which he declared that Nebraska has seen the end of a fusion of the opposition parties. The siiver republicans no long er exist, and the populists and democrats, he says, will never again act together. He predicts that after the republicans gave a clean, honest government they will remain in power for at least twenty years to come. In the past the republi cans were greatly injured by corrupt ad ministrations. In Nebraska he estimates that the dem ocrats have but 50,000 yotes of their own, the populists having about the same num ber. The populist party iu Nebraska was simply An outgrowth of the opposition to the course of the railroads in making dis criminations to build up one place and injure another, and to run things gener ally in their own way. With this situa tion corrected, the republicans now have nothing to fear from the populist move ment. Bryan will always be an influen tial man with about five-sixths of the democrats of the state, but at the recent election the people generally were con tented with the conditions as they found them, a|ul were not even now willing to risk a change of administrât n Mr. Rosewater is very confident of be ing cho*en as one of the two senators from Bryan's state where he has had great assurances of general support from the people at large. a Brilliant Wedding. Washington, Dec. 5.—A brilliant wedding today was that of Miss Mary McComas, daughter of Senator and Mrs. Louis E- McComas, to Clinton Goodloe Edgar of Detroit. The ceremony was performed at noon in St. John's Rpisco copal church in Lafayette square. Miss McComas was attended by her cousin, Miss Bessie McComas, as maid of honor, and has as ber bridesmaids Miss Julia Foraker, Miss Marior Galladet, Misa Error Culhbert Brown, Miss Charlotte Hagemen and Miss Winifred Mattingly all of Washington; Miss Hutntnerchouse, of Hagerstown, Md.; Miss Marsh, of New York and Miss McKeehun of Phila delphia.

Shaw, of Albany and Gist Blair and George Howard of Washington. The ceremony at the church was followed by a reception aud breakfast at the McComas residence on Rhode Island avenue. W. C. T. U Convention. Washington, Dec. 5 —The features of this irorning's session of the W. C. T. U national convention was a school of methods for instruction in the work of the various departments. Mrs. Hanna J. Bailey presided and many interesting views were exchanged by the delegates who took part. This aftornoon was de voted to the reception of reports of organ izations and institutions afliliated with the W. C. T. U., including the Frances E.

Cox, of N J., on Sabbath ob servance, and Mrs. Mary F. Lovell, of N. J.,on mercy. Social features will oc cupy the delegates this eveuiug, the pro gram being in charge of the state presi dents. Anti Vice Crusade. Nkw York, Dec. 5.—Not in the recol- 1 lection of the oldest inhabitant of the "red light district" has that section of the city been so cleared of its dens of vicious characters as it was tonight. The owners took fright Saturday night and fled. They had read that Captain Titus was coming. The fight between Captain Titus and the dive keeping element has been a waiting game. The dive-keepers believe that the reform will soon be over and theerefore intend to keep their shut ters closed until they "get the tip" to resume business. Committees of citizens in the district will be appointed to keep sharp watch for the return of the dive keepers. The women in the district will organize to that end. The auti-vice committee appointed by Charles S. Smith will probably meet to morrow for oiganlzation. Headquarters will lie selected and various subcommit tees will be appointed to take up the crusade in earnest. It was rumored to night that the I'arkhurst society will be asked to aid the committee. The Central Labor Union took up the vice matter to day and adopted resolutions expressing sympathy with the movement. Official Test Made. SkaTTLK, Dec. 5.—Major Millis and Captain Harry Taylor returned today from Fort Casey, Fort Flagler and Fort Wor den, where they went last week to make an ofifician test of the big guns of the lower sound fortifications. The test was conducted by Captain William Crozier, of the staff of General Buffington, chief of the ordinance bureau of the United States army. The work was finished Saturday night at Fort Worden. Speaking of the test both Major Millis and Captain Taylor said that it was a complete success iu ever particular. The guns worked spleudidly. Captain Croz ier left for Portland last night whence he will go to San Francisco. Guests of the President Washington, Dec. 5.—Owing to the recent death of Mr. James Barber, nephew of Mrs. McKinley, this winter will not see mauy brilliant social events at the White House. There will be a few notable dinners, however, and the first of these will be given this evening. The guests will be the commissioness to the Paris exposition and will be about fifty in number. The affair will be in token of the president's appreciation of the services rendered by the commission ere. Operations at a Standstill Minneapolis, Dec 5.—Lumbering op erations in Minnesota are practically at a standstill on account of the warm weather, and unless there is a change at once, lumbermen will be heavy loosers this winter. None of the swamps ar* frozen over as yet. Loggers are being paid the highest wages in years. WILL FIGHT THE BILL The Ship Subsidy Bill will Meet With Strenuous Opposition in Congress. MAY BE DEFEATED FOR THE SESSION It Will Either Be Postponed or Greatly Modified If it Does Not Go Over. Washington, Dec. 5.—From informa tion obtained in talka with senators and represetiatives the indication* are that the shipping subsidy bill will be very likely to be set aside after it ha* been demonstrated that it cannot pass, aud that it will encounter vigerous oppo sition. Eeveu republicans are in doubt whether they should pass the bill or not, among them being Representative Bur ton, chairman of the committee on rivers and harbors, who represents Cleveland 1 Hanna's home town. He has already suggested that the bill would have to be gtrstly modified before it would receive his support. That was the position of number of members during the last con gress. A great mauy republicans shied at any subsidy bill whatever, and they sought to have it modified largely from the first draft that it was introduced by Hanna in the senate and Payne in the house, and became knowu as the Hanua Payne shipping bill. Now any prolonged opposition in the short session in the senate can defeat almost any measure. The elections bill was defeated in the fifty-first congress in that way, and the shipping bill could be defeated in this congress. But there is a difference in conditions now. It was known in the short session of the fifty-first congress that the house would be overwhelmingly democratic in the next cotigreaa, and the defeat of any obnoxious measure would mean no possibility of its passing in the next session. Now it is known that there is a large republican majority in the next house, much larger than in the present.

Con sequently the démocrate may decide to allow the present subsidy bill to go through, 011 the theory that it is better than the one which might pass in the next congress. Still, if republican oppo sition develop«* this session, as it did in the last session, there is every reaeon to believe that the bill could be easily de feated this session. To Chance us Complexion. Visnna, Dec. S-— The result of the elections for the new reicherath, which began today and continue nnttl January 15, is awaited with intente interest. The late house caused no end of trouble for the government and heroic efforts are being made to change the complexion of the new body. Unless a remarkable change comes over the public mind, howevtr, it is probable that the new house will strongly resemble the old. If anything the radical element will prob ably be increased, in which case the Czeches and other parties will have it in their power to obstruct legislation at will. A repetition of the proceedings of the late house, which aat only 169 times and passed only one bill, will probably result in extreme measures being taken V> remedy affairs. Two courses are left open to the government. One is the abolition of the central parliament, as the Czeches and other fédéraliste deaire and the other is a repeal of the preeeut constitution and the creation of a new one with a widely extended franchise and with the omission of certain objec tionable class privileges, uottbly those now enjoyed by the great landed pro prietors.
