Dr. Leopoldo Arnud, the Spmish con
sul In Chicago, who has tendered
Ills resignation, said that he
believed the work of reviving
commercial Interests between
the United States and Spain had
been done well. He added: "Spain
today is on t;ie road to become one of
tbe foremost powers in Europe. The
people have come to realize that the
war with the United States was a war
of governments, and no animosity ex
ists between the inhabitants of the
two countries. The war was a good
thing for Spain. The nation had been
giving its best men and ?103,000,0!)0
annually to the wars in progress in
the Philippines, Cuba and Porto Itico.
As a result of the recent conflict the
powers of Spain are concentrated for
the country's development and ad
vancement. In 10 years the world will
not recognize the nation."
i
The comparative ineffectiveness of
the rifle fire of the British soldiers in
South Africa has called out a con
siderable amount of comment in Eng
land. A Bisley expert, writing in the
Daily Mail, note's that in th: British
army volley firing is cultivated t: a
large extent. He says that it is be
lieved to regulate the expenditure of
ammunition, to compel each soldier to
tire coolly with properly adjusted
sight, and to enable the commander
to direct his fire at the desired point
The eame writer, however, says that.
Burnham, the American scout, called
attention to the fact that the Boers
would "duck" when they saw the
smoke of a volley, and rise to lire after
it bad passed over them. The tuith
is that volley firing cannot be used to
advantage except ' against men in
masses and at moderate ranges.
'American tactics, however, prefer the
use of magazine fire at short ranges
and at the critical moment of attack
or defence. The English employment
of the volley is part of the cons rva
tive methods which prevail in the
service of the Queen, and which have
received some pretty severe
shocks in the course of lue war ta

BRESCI IS SENTENCED
Anarchist Slayer of King Humbert
Goes Up For Life.
IS THE EXTREME PENALTY IN ITALY
IIU Trial tt'aa Without Any Kicltlng
IikI.ImiU nnl W Quickly
Concluded.
The trial of Bread, the anarchist
who July 20 shot and killed King
Humbert, of Italy, at Monza, while
his majesty was returning from a gym
nastio exhibition, opened at Milan,
Italy, Wednesday.
At the close of the trial Rresci was
pronounced guilty and sentenced to
imprisonment for life. An immense
crowd of people gathered about the
court from early morning, seeking ad
mission to the court room, where only
a few places were reserved for the
ticket-holding public.
The bearing began at 9 o'clock,
llresci sat in the dock, calm and al
most indifferent. His counsel, Signor
Morlino, made various requests for
an adjournment, which were refused.
He said tbat.Uresci wrote to the judges
declaring he would not reply to the in
terrogatory. While the indictment, which was
very long, was being read, Bresci was
apparently unmoved and scanned the
faces of the audience without any
signs of fear or effrontery. The in
dictment showed that the assassin in
dulged in incessant target practice,
and that he prepared ballots so as to
render them more dangerous.
The witnesses were then introduced.
There were eleven for the prosecution
and five for the defense. The exam
ination of Brefei followed.
He declared lie decided to kill King
Humbert after the events of Milan "to
avenge the misery of the peopb and
my own." He added, "I acLtf with
out advice or accomplices."
The prisoner admitted the target
practice and preparation of the bullets.
Jie spoke in a low firm voice and said
raid he fired three shots with his re
volver. Two wooden targets were
here placed on the table before the
judges. Two hours suspension of the
court followed, and then the witnesses
were heard.
A brigadier of gendarmes, Salvatori,
recapitulated the story of the assas
ination of the king. He said he saved
Bresci from the crowd which nearly
lynched the assassin. Bresci when
ressuod was covered with blood.
General Avogadro Des Contes di
Quinto,' the king's aide-de-camp, who
was with the king when he was killed,
recounted how the king was shot.
The royal groom deposed that he
seized Bresci by the throat. A wit
ness named Ramella, who lodged with
Bresci and a friend three days prior
to the crime, said the prisoner was al
ways perfectly calm.

PKOTEST OF THE O. A. R.
Veterans Say School Book, and Histories
of the South Are Incorrect.
School histories used in the public
schools of the southern states were
denounced by the Grand Army of the
Republic at the meeting in Chicago.
The official declaration was made
that the histories have been written
with the puypose of perpetuating in
tho minds of southern children the
sectional prejudice of the days of '61.
Resolutions were adopted calling pc
the public, in the name of the Grand
Array, to banish the books from the
schools op the country and a commit

protest.
THIRTEEN DEAD
IN COLLISION
Excnrsion Train Crashed With
Fearful Force Into Milk Cars.
OVER THIRTY PERSONS INJURED
The Impact Was Terrific and Both
Trains Smashed Almost to
Kindling Wood.
Thirteen persons killed and over
thirty others injured in the appalling
record of a rear-end collision between
an excursion train and a milk train on
the Bethlehem branch of the Philadel
phia and Reading railway Sunday
morning at Hartfield, Ta., twenty
seven miles north of Philadelphia.
The wrecked train consisted of ten
dey coaches and was the first section
of a large excursion made up of peo
ple from Bethlehem, Allentown and
surrounding towns to Atlantic City.
It left the union depot in Bethlehem
at 6:05 Sunday morning exactly thirty
five minutes behind the milk train.
The latter train consisted of two milk
cars and two passenger coaches and
had stopped at every station on the
road from Bethlehem en route to Phil
adelphia. At 6:54 the milk train drew up at
the milk platform at Hatfield and in
less than two minntes the special ex
cursion .train, running at the rate of
thirty-five miles an hour, crashed into
the rear of the milk train The loco
motive plowed through the two pas
senger coaches and crushed them as if
they were egg shells. The milk car
immediately, in front was also badly
wrecked. Four persons. Godfrey Kae-
in. his daughter Mamie, Harold Lan-
dis and William Blackburn, on the
passenger car of the milk train, were
almost instantly killed. Fortunately
there were very few persons on this
train.
The excursion train was a picture of
indescribable horror. The locomotive
was a mass of bent and broken iron
and firmly held the bodies of its en
gineer and fireman beneath its great
weight. Behind the engine six of the
ten cars were also a mass of wreckage.
The first car was broken in twain and
the other five cars were thrown on
their sides, completely demolished.
Nine persons were killed in the first
two cars and the others in tht3e
coaches were badly maimed.
As soon as the crash came a terrible
cry rose from the smashed cars, and
those who had not been injured quick
ly crawled or jumped from the cars
and went to the assistance of the in
jured. Many were pinned down by
wreckage and had to be freed by the
liberal use of axes. Messengers were
sent to the nearby villages for physi
cians and a relief train was telegraphed
for from Bethlehem. With fifteen doc
tors and a half dozen nurses a special
train was sent from Bethlehem, but
before it reached the scene of the
wreck it was signaled to return to
Bethlehem, as a special carrying nearly
all the injured had started for the hos
pital at that place. On the run from
Hatfield to the hospital three of the
injured died.
There are conflicting stories as to
responsibility for the accident. One
version is that the engineer of the ex
cursion train had been warned at Sou
derton, the station above Hatfield, that
a milk train was a few minutes ahead
of him. Another story is that the
train dispatcher's office in Philadel
phia was at fault. The trainmen re
fused to talk of the accident.

The state department has made pub
lio the text of the Russian proposal
and its responso as follows:
Telegraphic instructions sent to the
representative of the United States
in Berlin, Vienna, Paris, London,
Rome, Tokio and St. Petersburg.
Department of state, Washington,
August 29, 1900. The Russian charge
yesterday made to me an oral respect
ing Russia's purposes in China, to the
following effect:
"That as already repeatedly declar
ed Russia has no designs of territorial
acquisition in China; that equally
with other powers now operating
there, Russia has sought safety of le
gations at Pekin and to help the Chi
nese government to repress the trou
bles that, incidentally to necespary
defensive measures on Russian border,
Russia has occupied Nowchwang for
military purposes and as soon as order
is re-established will retire troops
therefrom if action of other powers be
no obstacle thereto; that the purpose
for which the various governments
have co-operated for relief of
legations in Pekin has been
accomplished; that, taking the position
that, as the Chinese government has
left Pekin, there is no need for her
representative to remain, Russia has
directed Russian minister to retire
with his official personnel from China;
that the Russian troops will likewise
be withdrawn; und that when the gov
ernment of China shall regain the
reins of government and afford an au
thority with which the other powers
can deal, and will express desire to
enter in negotiations, the Russian gov
ernment will also name its representa
tive. Holding these views and pur
poses, Russia expresses hope that the
United States will share th& same
opinion."
ANSWER OF UNITED STATES.
To thb declaration our reply has
been made by the following memoran
dum: "Tho government of the United
States receives with much satisfaction
the reiterated statement that Russia
has no designs of territorial acquisi
tion on China and that equally with
the other powers mow operating in
China, Russia has sought the safety of
her legation in Pekin and to help tho
Chinese government to repress the ex
isting troubles. The same purpose
will control the government of the
United States aud frank declarations
of Russia in this regard are in ajcord
with those made to the United States
by the other powers.
All the powers, therefore, having
disclaimed any purpose to acquire any
part of China, aud now that adherence
thereto has been renewed since relief
has reached Pekin, it ought not to be
thnicult by concurrent action through
negotiations to reach an amicable set
tlement with China by which the
treaty rights of all the powers will be
secured for the future, the open door
assured, the interests and property of
foreign citizens conserved and full
reparation made for wrongs and in
juries suffer 3d by them.
As a result of these considerations
unless there is such a general expres
sion by the powers in favor of contin
ued occupation as to modify the views
of Russia and lead to a general agree
ment for continued occupation, we
shall give instructions to the com
mander of the American forces in
China to withdraw our troops from
Pekin after due conference with other
commanders as to the time and manner
of withdrwal.
"So far as we are advised the greater
part of China is at peace and earnestly
desires to protect the life and property
of all foreigners, and in several of the
provinces active and skillful efforts to
suppress the Boxers have been taken
by the viceroys, to whom we have ex
tended encouragement through our
consuls and naval officers. The pres
ent good relation ehonld be promoted
for the peace of China.
"The government of the United
States is much gratified by the assur
ance given by Russia that tho occupa
tion of New Chwang is for military pur
poses incidental to the military steps
for the security of the Russian border
provinces menaced by the Chinese,
and that as soon as order has been es
tablished Russia will retire her troops
from those places if the action of the
other powers be not an obstacle there
to.
"No obstacle in this regard can
arise through any action of the United
' States, whose policy is fixed and has
been repeatedly proclaimed.
