One of tho wisest and ino:it satis factory of recent innovations in the educational system 'of this c uatry are tho vacation schools, which arc open during tho suinmei' moutln in Now York city, liston, Hyracnso and other citiv-M. Tho idea originated iu New York city, and has muco been taken up in other tilucs v.ilh excel lent results. An incident of tho civilization of tho rod man is that ho is developing insanity juat ai whilo folks do, aud thereforo tho jpvernuiout has bought 100 acres of land near Cnuton, ti. 1)., whereupon to build an asylum to ac commodate all tho insane Indians of the United States.

Studying tho direct cause? of fires in the United fit.i os for tho past voir, wo find that there were 11 dr.at exp'.o eions, 022 fires caused by electric wires and light.-, 500 caused by liro erackevs, 1507 forest aul pinkie fires, 295 caused by friction i.i machinery, C8'.U hicondiary fires, ;173 fires caused by lightning, 210 ca'inel by mischiev ous children, and 91 caused by natural gas Oil Htovcs were respoasible'for 337 fires, open fireplaces for 110; sparks set 529 j firoa. spontaneous combustion caused 1179; thare were five ilres caused by the suu'3 rays passing through window glass, and one fire caused by the rays passing through a glass bottlo; tramps set 755 fires, not incendiary, nnd 12,201 fi:e3 hal no assignable causes. A great deal has been said in regard to the voices of women i.i public speak ing since their great international congress, and one point upon whL-k they havo been laughed at h tho ten dency they show to raise tho pitch of the voice with tho idea that that will add to its carrying power. One would almost pve:er har friends to have the tone that is not adapted to public speak ing rather than to have tham possess that peculiar carrying tono in private life. Once in a while one hears a voice in a public conveyance that, without being loud is so penetrating that the confidential conversation of its owner is plainly hoard, to the de light of some individuals, to tho un easiness of others. At such moments one knows what Holme3 mast have meant when he spoke of tho kind of voice that would kill a man and he'd never know what ailed him. The last Michigai Legislature passed a bill appropria'ing $2303 per year for a period of two ycar3 for the location and support of an agricultu ral experiment station at some point on the upper peninsula. In an inter view outlining the ideas or the board in opening up the new station, tho president of tho board, Mr Snyder, paid: "Iho consideration! as to the locality of tho no.v station will- bo chiefly, and perhaps wholly, physical and geographical.

INSURGENTS RESIST FIERCELY Men From the Charleston Concord Land Under Hot Pise. and A special from Mauila pays: Tho United States cruiser Charleston, the monitor Monterey and tho gunboats Concord aud Zaliro, with marine? and bluo jackots from the cruiser Balti more, left Cavito September 18th and proceeded to Subig bay to destroy an insurgent cannon there. Owing to the bad weather the oper ation was postponed until Saturday, when the warships for three hours bombarded the town of Olangapo and the intrenchments where the gun was situated. Men from tho Charleston, Concord andZaiiro were then landed under a hctvy insurgent fire, proceeding to tho cannon, which was utterly destroyed by gun cotton and then returning to the warship. The Americans had one man wounded during tho engagement. AYhilo waiting in Subig bay for bet ter weather, the Americans descried Filipino re enforcements moving to ward Olan'rapo. At G:10 a. in. Satur day the Monterey began the advance upon the town, which was about three miles east of the monitor's anchorage. Tho Charleston, Concord and Zafiro followed. At 7:25 the Monterey opened fire with her second artillery and main batteries, tho Charleston and Concord joining immediately. At 7:38 the in surgents' cannon answered, the first shot passing close to the Monterey's 6mokestack' The gun was fired twice only. Tin American bombarding then be came general. At 9:39 the Monterey advanced to a range of COO yards, using her main battery. Two hun dred and fifty men were landed about 800 yards east of the cannon at 11 o'clook under a severe Mauser fire. The men from the Charleston were the first to reach the beach, but the Concord's men were the first to the gun, which they reached at 11:10. The cannon was found to be a sixteen centimeter Krupp gun, presumably obtained from the Spaniards. Meanwhile the warships continued to shell the shelving beach on the east and west to silence the insurgent fire upon the 6ailors from the trenches skirting the beach. Gunner Olsen exploded fifty pounds of guncotton, in three discharges, in the cannon, which had suffered from tho fire of the warships. Tho Ameri cans then returned to the boats, the firing inland being kept up to protect the embarkation. The Concord's men were the last to leave the shore and the warships were reached at 12:50 p. ru. Cadet Brinser, with the Concord's launch, armed with a gatling, did ex cellent work on the left of the landing party. Captain Myers, of the mraine3, captured a muzzle-loading field piece. Lieutenant McDonald was in command of the landing party and the movemont was splendidly executed and controlled. The number of Filipinos there could not be ascertained and no dead were seen. The Monterey fired for four hours twenty-one shots from her ten-inch guns and seventeen from her twelve inch guns. The town, which was riddled with shells, took fire at several points.

DEMAND r02 TICKETS EC2XGUS A Knidrcd Tltn.inl Applicants For a Twety Tlioumiiid Iiu-iifnai Ploro Thnn Espcctttil. A New York special pays: All the general arrangements for the recep tion of Admiral Dewey are now com plete and only a few details aro left to bo settlod.

All the pub-oommitteos havo about finished their work and have presented their reports to tho general committee. The committoo on distribution of tickets was tit work all day in tho mayor's ofilco until late at night. They apportioned nearly 20,000 tickots, all there were at their disposal. There were applications for more than 100, 000. Their work did not include the distribution of tickets to tho munici pal assembly and theBchool children's stands. These tickets will be at the disposal of the municipal legislators and the presidont of tho board of edu cation. The committee on stands is yet to decide exactly what will be the capaci ty of the new stands. If the commit tee stands for all the expenditures it has authorized, it will have spent more than $-15,000 in excess of tho first ap propriation made to it of $30,000 and 1,000 more than it has in eight even if tho municipal assembly votes to give it the additional $23,000 that is to be asked fcr at tho next meeting of the aldermen and council. For the seventy odd thousand ex pended, the committee has furnished about 20,009 seats to the ticket com mittee, 4,000 on the city hall stands, G,0a0 for the school children, 10,000 for tho municipal assembly and 25,000 for the veterans of the Grand Army of the Republic, a total of about 40,500 seats for about $73,000.

Depew and in person from Richard Croker and William McAdoo. Mr. Croker said the com mitteo could make any use of him they desired and that he was ready to do anything in his power to help along the success of the celebration. With the exception of Levi P. Morton and W. C. Whitney all the members of the committee havo accepted. MISTRIAL IN HUGHES CASE. Jury Announces That It Wns Imponstble to Iieach Agreement.

MUST RESTRAIN ALL COMBINES Oatcomc of the Convention Held Under Saycfs Call. STRONG RESOLUTIONS ADOPTED Capital Invested Legitimately Should Not lie Interfered With. After two days of epeech-making at St. Louis, tho governors, attorney generals and other state representa tives adopted resolutions outlining the legislation needed to control tho so-called trusts and combines and ad journed sino dio Thursday night. Tho resolutions embodied were agreed to after a long session of tho committee on resolutions. So widely divergent were tho views presented for it consideration that it was after midnight when tho committed was able to arrive at any conclusion. The whole matter was thon referred to a sub-committee, composed of Governor McMil lin, of Tennessee, aud Attorneys Gen eral Smith, of Texas, and Campbell, of Colorado, to put into proper shape. Governor McMillin, chairman of the committee on resolutions, presented the report of that committee. In presenting tho report of tho com mittee on resolution, Govornor Mc Millin eaid he was aware of the fact that the trusts and combinations in restraint of trade are in a de gree dependable upon federal, etato and municipal governments for their continuance. He believed it was in cumbent npon the national, state and municipal governments to restrain the operations of these trusts and combi natiqus. "The situation and perhaps the ef forts of the conference are misunder stood," the speaker contined. "It is not tho object of this conference to crush corporations, nor to interfere with capital in any legitimate fovm. The object of these resolutions is not to crush either corporations or to de stroy capital, but to regulate them, so as to meet the fair demands of all the people. . "This is the purpose and this is tho object we hope to accomplish, Tho organization of trusts and combines within the last two years is the occa sion and authority for our presence here. Wo are seeking to ascertain a proper power for the curtailment of what is apparently menacing evil, aud the accomplishment of this object can be effected through the independent action of the citizen. Ve have the best land in the history of man. "We furnish tho world with thirty ono per cent of the manufactured ar ticles of the world and thirtv-two ner cent of all the banking. In tho mat ter of agriculture, notwithstanding Great Britain, Russia and other csun tries, we feed the world. This agri cultural class is not organized and cannot be organized into trusts or combines and must bo protected against other interests which can combine. "The industrial and other impor tant interests are combined to con trol the wealth of the country in the hands of a few and by these means the sweat and toil of the millions is controlled. Our object is to prevent this. Corporations are necessary in a proper degree to the successful con duct of business, but they should not be so managed and controlled as to destroy business. It is not proper to place thp commerce of this great coun try in thfl hands of three or four peo ple and thereby control the labor and destiny of the republic. "When all these industries are combined into one band for tho man ufacture of a given article, they paral yze labor without extending sufficient protection. It is one of the objects of this conference to correct this condi tion of affairs. "Within recent years, I think less than two years, not less than 200 trusts havo organized with a capital of Si, 230,000, 000. If all tho gold drawn from tho earth could be mar shaled into one sum it could not pay the obligations cf these trusts; if ail silver taken from the earth was ap plied it could not cancel tho obliga tions of these combinations. Iu couclnding, the speaker claimed that tho interests were so vital as not to be of partisan character, but con tended that a prohibitive tariff had much to do with the creation of trusts, using the sugar trust as an illustra tion. Kesolutions thanking Governor Sav ers for his efforts in behalf of the con ference were adopted before delaring the conference adjourned. Miners liaise Cain In Arkansas.
