Belmont returned from Europe to- dav on board the Cunard line steamer Lucania. He has been absent about two months and most of his time has ieen spent in Paris. Since his de parture irom these snores tne canui. dacv of Admiral Dewev for the office of President has leen announced. "It was with regret.'' said Mr. Bel mont to-day. ' that I heard that ad miral Dewey had announced himself as a candidate for the presidency. I regard it as simply the result of the scheme of a few men who are attempt ing to disrupt the democratic party. For the Admiral himself, I have the greatest admiration and, as having once served in the navy, I have for him the most kindlv feelincrs. He has certainly served his country well ami the Lnited States owes to him a debt of gratitude. He has, however, been misled. 1 predicted months atro that something: oi tnis Kinu would occur. "I think the candidacy of Admiral Dewey is a hopeless one. It is a fore gone c onclusion that Bryan will be the nominee of the democratic con vention and that McKinley will be chosen br the republicans. As far as votes are concerned, I think that Admiral Dewey would take more from the republicans than the democrats. The admiral has been most unfortu- fortunate in the choice of those who have represented him .before the people in the public press." "Do you think that Mr. Bryan will be elected?" "Unquestionably," was the reply. "The democratic party will win on the issues of trusts and of anti-imperialism. No matter wkat the repub lican party may say on the subject of trusts it is not likely that the Ameri can people will be disposed to accept it. The republicans have leen so al lied with trusts that it will be difficult for them to define their position. On the question of anti-imperialism the democratic party has a right to take the stand, for it was pre-eminently the war party. It has developed that the object of the republican party is merely colonial expansion of colonial ex-ploitation. The position of the administration with regard to Puerto Rico will alone condemn the republi cans. ABLEST MEN ARE FAVORED. Prospects for a Strong Body of Law makers. 9t. LoaU Republic. Particular attention seems to have been paid this year in all the counties wherein democratic conventions have been held to selecting strong .men for the legislative nomination. There is no question that the next general assembly will be composed ot as able men as can be found in the ranks of the party. A numler of reasons ex ist for this particular attention. Among them is the fact that the ap portionment of the state in congres sional districts will le considered Missouri districts so far have been entirely satisfactory and the lines have lieen fairly and equitably drawn. The republicans are going through numerous gyrations over the pro posed redistricting, and they urge that a sjecial tight be made on the representatives. Their efforts dem onstrate that they are in desperate straits for campaign material. The congressional districts of Missouri have proved satisfaetorv to both parties, and it is considered doubtful whether, if they were changed, it would better the conditions for re publicans. W.J. Bryan Contributes. Salem. 111., April 29. Mrs. L. M. Kagy. a prominent member of the oman s Keliel I orps, has received a letter from Col. William J. Bryan, in closing a check for ?2o which he de sired to be applied to the fund being raised by the corps for the erection of a monument here to the memoir of the unknown dead soldiers and sailors of all wars. This is the fund to which several weeks ago President STONE WOULD ACCEPT-l Does Not Peel That He is Too Great for the Vice Presidency. Kansas City, Mo., April 29. For mer Gov. W. J. Stone spent to-day in Kansas City "taking a much need ed rest," as he expressed it. Asked regarding the boom for his nomina tion for Tice president, launched by former Gov. Hogg, of Texas, Gov. Stone did not deny that he would ac eepts the nomination, and left the impression that if he were urged strongly enough he would accept sec ond place on t he t icket . II e sa id : - "I am not like Mr. Roosevelt and other gentlemen who seem to think taey are too big for the vice presi dency. It is big enough for any man and mueh too his. for man v. I believe the vice president should be as big a man as the president. I do not think the nominee should come from Mis souri. If Missouri is not a democrat ic state there is aot a democratic state in the union. The vice presiden tial nominee should be chosen with a view to strengthening the ticket. As a matter of political poliev the nom inee should live east of the Missis sippi. The nominee should not lie a southern man. He should come from one of the large states in either the central west or the east: He should be one of the men whoheljied to carry his state for Brran in 1896." Boers Big Losses. London, April 30. The Morning Post's correspondent at Bloemfon teiu sends a long, detailed commun ication with reference to thestrength of the Boers and their resources.as obtained from a high official of the Boer commissariat, through whose lanas the returns passed. It con tains the assertion that the Boers, up to March 13. lost 6500 in prisoners, 8000 killed and wounded and 14.000 who have slunk tot heir homes. They are extremely short of wagons, and were short of wheat until their raid nto the Wepener district, where the mrvest has leen the finest on record. Their mealies are in bad condition. Smokless powder for their big guns is almost exhausted, but other stores and rifle ammunition are plentiful. There are no positions south of Pre toria which cannot lie turned by the British. Even the Vaal River does not offer any protection to the Trans vaal, it leing fordable at every dozen miles. The position at Biggarsberg can also lie easlv turned. Bryan Will Not Attend. Lincoln, Neb., April 27. William J. Brvan returned to his Lincoln home to-day, and withthe exception of a week's campaigning in Michigan and northern Ohio, beginning next Monday, will remain here almost uninterruptedly until after the demo cratic national convention. Mr. Bryan said this period of rest and quiet was not necessitated by his state of health, which was excellent, but was in pursuance of a program mapped out some months ago. lie said he saw no reason to change a plan perfected some time since, and that he would not attend the Kan sas Citv convention. Negro Lynched. Marshall. Mo.. April 28. One of the negroes who broke jail here last Thursday night wascaptured Friday night ami placed m the county jau. A mob took him from the jail at 11 o'clock to-night and hanged him to a tree in the court house yard, lhe mob forced an entrance to tlie jail and took the prisoner from his cell. The mob wasnuiet and orderly. The other negro has not len caught. The negro hung was Mmdeethe ninaoo, nnd the evidence is that he shot the sheriff's wife. Mrs Wilson is resting easy to night. Leg Crushed Under a Train. Carthage, Mo., April 29. Dr. L. W. Clark of this city, while en route to Oronoga, where he has large mining interests, got off at Maeey by mistake and whilw trying to resume his iournev with the train in motion missed his foothold and fell. The wheels passed over his left leg, crush isn it badly. He was brought by the first tram to Carthage, where the in inrd ler was amputated just below the knee bv Dr. J. W. Kitcken. Hopes are entertained for his recovery. Dr. Clark is a large landed proprie tor in Arkansas, Texas and Kansas as well as in this state. Texas Cotton Crop Damaged. San Antonio, Tex , April 29. De- velonments which have come to light in the past two days would indicate that the coming cotton crop of Texas will be tremendously short or at least T.rT late.

While the banquet hall of the Waldorf-Astoria, was ringing to-night with applause in honor of the hero of Appomattox.. Elihu Root, with all the impressive ness attaching to a deliberate state ment from the Secretary of War, de clared that the time was rapidly mrp proaehing in our history as n nafim when we nhould haveeither toaliaud on the Monroe Doctrine or fight for it. He added that we would never abandon it. Mr. Root presided over the dinmr held in honor of the birthday of I'lysseH 8. Grant, and his referenre tm the Monroe Doct rine, it is generally agreed, was designed as an official utterance of the McKinley Adiuinis t rat ion. intended to express tlie 1e lief of the president that it is possible for one to "eat his apple, and feave it, too."
