Had an American Flag in Each Hand As He Jumped to Death. WAS R. G. BIDWELL, OF WASHINGTON Put on a Life-Preserver and Wrapped Himself in Towels--Large Crowd Saw His Jump-His Body was Recovered an Hour Later-Card Found on His Body Says He was the Author of the Reign of Mind. New York (Special).—ln what is said to have been an attempt to demonstrate the superiority of mind over matter and the lack of mundane limitations on "in finite consciousness,” Robert Giffens Bidwell, of Washington, D. C., leaped from the centre span of the Brooklyn bridge, waving an American flag in each hand, and fell to his death. Although diligent search was made for the body as soon as the case was re ported to the police, it was not found un til an hour afterward, when it was seen floating near a pier north of the bridge and taken from the water. An examination showed the careful manner in which the young man, who was 30 years old, had prepared for his deed. The body, particularly the trunk, was swathed in towels, packed with paper, and a life-preserver was rolled about the breast. These safeguards against a possible error in his calcula tions regarding his ability to make the jump and live seem to do away with the suggestion of suicide. He left no word as to his intention at the hotel where he wa? stopping or with friends, of whom he had several in this city. The following closing words of a card, which he had in his pocket, are significant of his expectations concerning the result of his leap: "Robert Giffens Bidwell, author of ‘Reign of Mind,’ 1425 East Adams street, Jacksonville, Fla., also 1832 Ore gon avenue, N W„ Washington, D. C., June 4. 1901. Veni, vidi, vici.” Besides this inscription several letters and a Jacksonville newspaper containing his picture and a long flattering article served positively to identify him. From this paper, a copy of the Florida Times- Union and Citizen, published in Jack ■ sonville, April 12 last, it was seen that he had been lecturing in different parts of the country, and had arranged a series to occupy a week in Jacksonville. The lectures, as announced, were on differ ent themes, but through almost all of them there ran the suggestion of theo i ries of mind and matter. TRUE SPIRIT OF RIVALRY.

WILL TURN PEKIN OVE'RTO CHINESE. The Foreign Generals Will Make Transfer During This Month. Pekin (By Cable).—At a meeting of the generals of the allied troops it was decided to transfer the administration of the city of Pekin to the Chinese officials gradually during June.

London ((By Cable). —"I am inform ed,” says the Hong Kong correspondent of the times, wiring Saturday, "that the French intend to annex Hai Nan in July.” MRS. M’KINLEY NO BETTER. Her Condition More Alarming Than lor Some Days Past. Washington (Special). —Mrs. McKin ley’s condition is regarded now as prob ably more alarming than at. any time since she returned to Washingon. While the bulletins give no cause for appre hending a decided turn for the worse immediately, there are strong reasons for believing she is in a which if not materially improved soon will leave scant hope for her recovery. The attending physicians summoned to their consulation Dr. William Osier, of Johns Flopkins University, Baltimore, a well-known expert in nervous trouble, who was at the White House for a con siderable time. Dr. Osier's diagnosis confirmed that of the other physicians, and it was concluded that Mrs. McKin ley had gained little in the last few days. The nature of her malady renders her powers of recuperation less each day, and it has been feared that unless the i physicians can master the trouble she ; may not have strength to again rally. There is unquestionably the deepest 1 concern in Cabinet circles, and the quiet and lack of business being transacted at the White House may be accepted as sure indications of the concern of the 1 President, who is almost constantly at ' the bedside of his wife.

THREE KILLED AND SIXTEEN INJURED. Switch Engine Crashes Into Passenger Train in Georgia. CARS WERE NEARLY DEMOLISHED. Soon After the Wreck, G. B. Dunton, An Em ploye of the Southern Railway, Was Arrested, Charged With Disorderly Conduct-- This Charge Was Made Only that Dunton Might Be Held Pending an Investigation. i Atlanta, Ga.

On one of these sidetracks and only a few feet from the main track an engine was standing that had only a short time before been abandon ed by its engineer and fireman. As the train was passing the junction of this sidetrack the switch engine rapidly dashed backward into the moving train. The first-class day coach was thrown over on its side and partly demolished, j the Pullman car Aroturus was thrown ' from the track and one end smashed into kindling wood, while the tracks : were knocked from under the combina ’ tion smoker and passenger coach.

This charge was made only t that Dunton might be held. He was , really arrested on suspicion of having - run the wild engine to the swiftly mov ; ing passenger train. Dunton denied , that he had anything to do with the - wreck, and says he was not on the . engine. The Southern officials claim r that he was seen to get on the engine, and they say further that he had no > business there as he is a yard conduc , tor. Dunton has several gashes in his head, which he admits receiving in the j wreck, but he maintains that he was not t on the engine. s ROUSE WRECKED AND FOUR PEOPLE HURT t Heavy Storm Passes Over Pittsburg-Wreck Damage Caused by Hail and Wind.

EXTRA SESSION NOT NECESSARY. Congress Can Legislate on Philippine Matters in Winter. PRESIDENT HAS POWER TO ACT. Attorney General Knox, in a Legal Opinion, Hold that the President is Given Ample Authority in the Spooner Amendment to Do as He Thinks Best for the islands-Tariff Nov in Force Will Be Continued. Washington (Special).—lmmediately after a cabinet session of two and a quarter,hours Tuesday the following announcement was made by direction of the President and cabinet: “The President has determined that existing conditions do not require or warrant calling Congress together dur ing the present summer or making any change in the policy hitherto pursued and announced in regard to the Philip pine Islands.” The conclusion was unanimous, and there was not even a difference of opin ion in the most minor features. Practically the same conclusion was reached by the cabinet at the session last Friday. As there was room for fuller discussion and investigation, however, the President then asked At torney General Knox to give the sub ject of the bearing of the Supreme Court decision on the Philippines his attention, with a view of presenting his opinion. Mr. Knox told the cabinet that he had never had any doubt that the affairs of the Philippines could con tinue to be conducted as at the present time. He had examined the Spooner and other amendments relating to the Philippines and had carefully gone over the Porto Rican decisions of the Su preme Court. He felt that the Presi dent had ample authority to continue in force the tariff regulations that have governed the importation and exporta tion of goods from the islands: The main point upon which the opin ion was based is that the Philippines are not on a civil basis and will not be so long as they are subject to the con trol and direction of the President of the United States and the war depart ment.
