Gladness Comes
With a better understanding of ths
transient nature of the many phys
ical ills, which vanish before proper ef
forts — gentle efforts — pleasant efforts —
rightly directed. There is comfort in
the knowledge, that so many forms of
Bickness are not due to any actual dis
ease, but simply to a constipated condi
tion of the system, which the pleasant
family laxative, Syrup of Figs, prompt
ly removes. That is why it is the only
remedy with millions of families, and is
everywhere esteemed so highly by all
who Value good health. Its beneficial
effects are due to the fact, that it is the
one remedy which promotes internal
cleanliness without debilitating the
organs on which it acts. It is therefore
all important, in order to get its bene
ficial effects, to note when you pur
chase, that you have the genuine arti
cle, which is manufactured by the Cali
fornia Fig Syrup Co. only and sold by
all reputable druggists. « /
If in the enjoyment of good health,
and the system is regular, laxatives or
other remedies arc then not needed. If
afflicted with any actual disease, one
may be commended to the most .skillful
physicians, but if in need of a laxative,
one should hay the best, nud with the
well-informed verywhere, Syrup of
Figs stands hip U*st and fe most largely

A Twin City Gathering of Mnch In
terest—Plans of the Horticul
George A. Brackett, of this city, i&
the latest prominent citizen to discover,
that he has a "wayward son" down
Kast, who is soliciting and receiving
favors from persons acquainted witli
Mr. Brackett. A few days ago Mr.
Brackett was surprised to receive a
letter from a well-known clergyman in
Toledo, Ohio, stating that a young man
giving his name as George Brackett,
and claiming to be the son of Mr.
Brackett, of Minneapolis, had called
upon him and asked for aid. The
clergyman had taken the young man
into his own family on the strength of
these statements, and had also been
fortunate enough to secure him a posi
tion at $75 per month. He wrote to Mr.
Brackett to see if he could do anything
more for the boy. -
A day or two later Mr. Brackett re.
ceived a telegram from Rev. Wash
ington Gladding, of Columbus, asking
him if he had a long lost son George.
Mr. Brackett began to get mad about
this time and sent a long telegram to
Mr. Gladding, stating that he had no
ton outside of Minneapolis; that th<»
poung man was an imposter, and to
have him arrested.
Yesterday Mr. Brackett received a
letter from the humbugged Columbus
clergyman, giving him additional de~
tails of the claims made by the young
fellow. The sharper was undoubtedly
very well acquainted in Minneapolis.
He talked familiarly of the Plymouth
church especially. He went to Mr.
Gladding with tears in his eyes and
told a most heart rending story. He
was a graduate of Yale college, edu
cated for an electrical engineer, etc.
He had not done the right thing by
his father, and there had been a mis
understanding between them. He had
been to South America and had not
prospered. He now saw the error of his
ways and wanted a chance to start over
again and be a good boy.
T. B. Walker and G. L. Morrill are
other citizens whose names have been
ufced as relatives by a crooked young
man in Ohio, within the last two
years. It is undoubtedly the same fel
low, and a former resident and church
goer of Minneapolis. No one here is
able to guess with any degree of ac
curacy who the person is, but it is
time that a stop is put to his swindling.
Minnesota Horticulturists Meet In
Minneapolis Today.
The thirteenth annual meeting of the Min
nesota Staie Horticultural society will con
vene this morning in the county commis
sioners' rooms in the new court house, con
tinuing until Thursday evening.
It is expected that this year's convention
will be one of the most important in the
history of the society, many special features
being on the programme. Among these are:
"A Departure in the Method of Treatment
of Two Subjects— Strawberries and Apples."
At the last session, Thursday evening,
the programme will be entirely by the
young people from the university farm
school, under direction of Prof. S. .B. Green.
The fruit exhibit.it is expected, will excel any
thing ever heretofore attempted in the North
west in winter.
The session this morning will commence
at 10 o'clock, the afternoon session at 2
o'clock and the evening session at 7:30. The
! appointment of the usual committees will
be the first business this morning, after
which the society will begin upon its long
programme. Papers will be read by several
members of the society at the morning ses
sion, the general subject being "Small
Fruits." In the afternoon strawberries will
constitute the bone of contention, the even
ing session being devoted to the reading of
the reports of the various officers of the so
ciety, followed by addresses upon various
general subjects by members of the society.
The railroads have made a low rate for the
occasion, and it is expected that a large
number will be in attendance, and that the
membersh'p of the society will be materially
Interesting Gathering- of the Sunday
School Union.
A large audience of Fo-called liberal church
people of the Twin Cities gathered at the
First Unitarian church, Eighth str?et and
Mary place, last evening, in a regular month
ly meeting of the Liberal Sunday School
union. The meeting was held in the Sunday
school rooms of the church, which, though
spacious, were well taxed to accommocUte the
crowd. First Unitarian, Church of the Re
deemer. All Souls' church, Tuttle Uni.'ersal
ist church, were all represented by their pas
tors, as well as their principal Sunday school
workers, and quite a number were present
from St. Paul. "Sunday School Libraries"
was the general topic of d.scussicn, and sev
eral interesting papers and addresses were
presented. .. „
No Clues as to the Cause* of William
Bartlcy's Death.
The coroner's Jury, summoned to determine
how William Bartley, the aged flagman who
was found dead in his watch tower at Mar
shall and Seventeenth avenues northeast, Sat
urday morning, came by his death, will meet
again at 9 o'clock this morning at the county
morgue. It is expected that a verdict will
be reached at that time. There are several
witnesses, who were not present at the first
meeting Sunday, who will tell what they
know of the matter this morning.- Aniong
them is included the brakeman who was
among the first to enter the tower, and v;hn,
it is expected, will be able to throw consider
able light on the subject. He was asked by
Officer Ryan to appear before the jury Sunday
but refused. This time he has been sub
poenaed. This brakeman was excited Satur
day morning when he to.d his story to Officer
Ryan, but in the afternoon admitted having
moved the chair in the tower in order to be
able to enter through the narrow hatchway.
It is also claimed that the brakeman placed
the wrench on the shelf where it was found.
There will also be other new witnesses pres
ent this morning, and the jury is expected
to come to a verdict in a short time. The
case remains practically the same as it has
been since the first sitting of the coroner's
jury. Detectives Hoy and Lawrence, who
have been worknig on the case, have become
more convinced, the farther they have in
vestigated, that the old man came to his
death by falling. Detective Lawrence said
last night that every new fact developed
tended to strengthen the theory of accidental
death. The two detectives, in company with
County Attorney Frank M. Xye, made a trip
to the scene of the flagman's death and made
a thorough investigation, and left more 'on
vinced than ever that a murder had not been
committed. The circumstances surrounding
the case seem to substantiate the theory of
accidental death. If a premeditate! murder
had been planned, its execution would not
have been committed in daylight. If the
old man was murdered while the murderer
v.-as in an uncontrollable fit of anger, the
murderer would have wielded his weapon, the
monltey wrench, with demoniac force, while
the doctors testify that if the wounds were
caused by the wrench the blows were cer
tainly very light. The dead man was known
to have no enemies, and from the first his
family, as well as the neighbors and many
people of the city, have doubted that Bartley
was murdered
The position in which the body was found
gave rise to t-ie murder theory, because it
was away from any object upon which he
could have received his wound. This has
been cleared up by the physicians, who think
that after striking his. head against the
stove, he partially recovered, and in trying
to rise, fell back and received the second
bruise en the 'eft side by falling agaiast a
board on the ajhelf. Tlsen .again -{hafiaJing of
the monkey wrench on the shelf where it
was supposed to have been laid by the mur
derer, caused suspicion, but this has been
allayed by the brakeman, who says he picked
it up off the floor. The blood stains on the
wrench looked like murder, but these are
thought to have been caused by the bleeding
from the wounds on the old man's head.
The verd'et of the Jury will be awaited with
Friendly Visitor* Talk to the Ladles
of the Minneapolis Organisation.
"Friendly Visiting" was the topic whish
formed the basis of discussion at a meeting
called by Mrs. S. B. Williams at her norm,
406 Ninth street south, last evening. By spe
cial request there were present Mrs. C. G.
Higbee, Mrs. Conde Hamlin and Miss Clara
Sommers, of St. Paul, active in philanthropic
work in that city. It was thought by me
promoter of the meeting to secure an ex
change of views upon the best methods to be
employed In the prosecution of the work.
The attendance of Interested workers be
longing to this city was large, including
i Judge H. G. and Mrs. Hicks, Mr. and Mrs.
T. C. Bell, Rev. H. B. Nichols, Chades T.
Thomas, A. E. Peabody, H. A. Tuttlo and
others. In the proceedings of the evening
there was apparent a slight difference in the
methods of work in the two cities. As stated
by the visitors from St. Paul, it was cus
tomary in that city to visit people through
friendliness alone and without the idoa of
material aid. Where urgent cases of the lat
ter were apparent a keen discrimination was
practiced. The local theory rather ma-ia the
question of material aid the leading consid
eration in friendly visiting.
G. S. Brackett presided, and immediately
upon taking the chair introduced Mr;. 0. C.
Higbee. She explained the nature of the
| work being done In St. Paul. There, butler
! provision is, perhaps, made for the indigent
| and needy. Good work is being done by ihe
i city relief, and the relief and aid societies,
! combining to give thorough attention to the
! details along the lines of material aid.
| Friendly visits are made to homes in the
I hope of elevating and benefiting by the act.
Mrs. Hamlin followed, reading a paper on
| "Friendly Visiting," dealing with the ques
| tion in the manner indicated. Mis 3 Sommers
i also read a paper, writing from the stand
j point of "Friendly Visitor Opportunity." She
; emphasized the necessity for elevating the
[ people and awakening a realization of oppor.
--j tunities and prudent necessities. This gave rise
| to a general discussion, which drew forth a
I general expression of individual views. Roy.
I H. B. Nichols mildly criticised some of the
i suggestions made by the visitors, but failed
to offer others. He was answered by Mrs.
Higbee. who asserted that the organizations j
of the two cities were dissimilar.
| Judges AVill Not Have to Worlc j
Overtime the Coming Term.
This morning at 10 o'clock, the regular
December term of court of the district court
of the Fourth judicial district will begin, tha
members of the bar gathering in the main
court room at the court house and city hall,
to be present when their cases are called,
that they may be set for a day certain.
The calendar is not a large one, and there
! will be ample time, it Is thought, for the
j judges to attend to the work and complete
the calendar before the April term begins.
This will be the first time in the history of
the court for some years that there has been
an opportunity to clear up the calendar com
pletely, without leaving a large number of
cases to go over until the next term, and it
is a matter of satisfaction. It Is very prob
able that the business will be such that the
judges will have time within reasonable
hours to make their decisions, and attend to
their work, without working as much over
time as has been the habit in the past.
District Court Criminal Calendar
Opens Today.
A change in dealing with criminals In Hen
nepin county will soon be inaugurated in the
I district court. Hereafter there will be fewer
| light sentences and less leniency will be
shown those who have broken the law. The
judges have come to a tacit understanding
as to the way of dealing with offenders, and
in future will mete out justice with less
I mercy than heretofore. The crooks, who have
! been plying their trade in Minneapolis, have
; been attracted here by the reputation the
Fleur City has made for herself for light
sentences. It Is hoped that dealing more
! harshly with the criminal classes will have
I the desired effect of keeping them away from
'■ here. During the last term Judge Smith
j commenced this work and the other judgss
wiil follow.
' Numerous Measures Require His At- !
tention in Congress.
Congressman Loren Fletcher Is closing up a '
number of political matters which will re- j
ceive attention upon his return to Washing- j
ton. They run all the way from an applica- '
tion for increase in some widow's pension >
and the distribution of government docu- |
ments to hurrying forward the matter of the i
new government dam at the Franklin avenue !
bridge and measures for the increase of the '
! revenues of the government. He expects to
> start Thursday or Friday, and hopes to be
back in Minneapolis for a brief visit during
the holiday season.
Penny Press Unfortunate.
Receiver Stephen B. Howard, for the Penny
I Press Co-operative company, yesterday aUer
| noon surrendered possession to the Mersan
| thaler Linotype company of the six tyesetting
i machines in use in the Penny Press office.
j Some time ago Receiver Howard was notified
! by Charles W. Sommerby, attorney for the
Mcrganthaler people, that a payment of $2,6'i0
due for rent of the machines would have to
| bo paid or possession of the machines would
have to be surrendered on Nov. 29. Tnat
date falling on Sunday, the time set for pay
ment fell yesterday, at which time Receiver
Howard notified Mr. Somerby that ne would
| voluntarily relinquish all right to have and
to hold the machines.
More Hold-Ups Reported.
After a rest of a couple of nights, the
j hold-up artists commenced operations again
last evening. The scene of the highway rob
| bery was on Holden bridge and the time about
10:15. Officer Fenn. who 13 on that beat, had
just gone to pull his box and evidently the
robbers were watching him, for they got in
their work whl'.e the officer was making his
report. The man who was the victim refused
to give the officer his name, but claims that
two men compelled him to hold up his hands
and give up his cash, amounting to $2, at
the point of revolvers. He describes the
two robbers as one short and the other tall.
Dye House Blew Up.
The residents of the South side were
startled about 9 o'clock last evening by an
explosion, and this was immediately followed
by flames bursting from the building of the
Twin City Dye works, 504 Cedar avenue An
alarm of fire was turned in, but it took over
half an hour to extinguish the fire and the
contents of the building were entirely de
stroyed. The force of the explosion blew out
both ends of the building. It is the supposi
tion that the chemicals used in the business

will be between $300 and $400. Fortunately
no one was hurt.
Ambitions of Japan Do Not Extend
to Corea.
12 win, who has been in Japan for thirty
years, and has represented the Ha
waiian government there, first as con
sul and afterwards as the minister
j auring the greater part of that timo'
| ai rived from the Orient on the steame
i Doric, yesterday. He said the state
! ment that Russia has established a
sovereignty over Corea is incorrect al
though the fact that the king is housed
in the Russian legation might lend
credence to that supposition. Japan's
ambition does not extend to Corea
American influence is uppermost in the
kingdom, and the king is acting en
tirely under the advice of three Amerl
j cans, Minister Sill, the secretary of the
i American legation and an American
missionary by the name of Underwood.
Irwin says that Japan's sole ambition
I now is commercial and industrial ad
l vancement. The government is en
couraging the construction, operation
and maintenance of railway and
steamship lines and manufacturing in
dustries. He declares, however, that
a false impression has been gained of
the extent and importance of the
steamship subsidies recently offered.
"The subsidies offered are entirely in
adequate for the purpose of maintain
ing a powerful line of transpacific
steamers," he declared. "The Nippon
Yusen Kaisha, which has undertaken
to run a line of ships between Japan
and Seattle, will think better of the
project before two or three years are
passed, and the company which Is
headed by S. Asano, will in my honest
opinion, never materialize."

Callers at the Home of the
NEW YORK, Nov. 30.— 1n the De
cember number of the North American
Review, published today, Mr. Bryan has
an article in which he discusses the re
sult of the election, as affecting the
status of the silver question^ The issue
on which the election turned, he de
scribes, as the "greatest issue ever
submitted to the American people In
time of peace." The declaration of the
Chicago convention in favor of th«
free coinage of silver forced upon the
people of thiis country a study of the
money question in general, and within
the last four months more people have
been simultaneously engaged in its con
sideration than ever before in the his
tory of the world. The result of this
study, Mr. Bryan declares to be "tem
porary defeat, but permanent gain for
the cause of bimetallism."
Mr. Bryan regards it as a significant
fact that the silver sentiment was
strongest where the question had been
longest considered; that is to say, in
the West and South. In Mr. Bryan's
opinion, th*> cause of bimetallism made
more rap progress than any cause
ever ma r in such a short time. He
express? js assurance that the elec
tion can by no means regarded as a
conclusive .Settlement of the question
at issue. The advocates of free coin
age are convinced, he says, that they
are laboring in behalf of a large ma
jority of the people, not only here, but
throughout the world, and, according
to the writer, they propose to continue
their contest, confident that four mor»
years of experience will convince many
who have thus far resisted arguments.
Tnis confidence, Mr. Bryan says is
confirmed by the history of recent elec
tions. Mr. Greeley was defeated in
1872, yet Mr. Tilden was elected in 1876
Mr. Blame was defeated in 1884_Jfcmt
Mr. Harrison was elected in 1888 The
Republican victory of 1888 was followed
by the I>emocratic victory of 1890 and
the election of President Cleveland two
years later. Mr. Bryan counsels the
successful party to remember that
thousands of Republicans have been
held to their party this year by the
pledge that it will try to secure in
ternational bimetallism. In reference
to the gold standard " Democrats Mr
Bryan feels assured that they cannot
dp as much in 1900 as they have done
this year. They have declared their
affection for Democratic principles
while they spared no effort to seeuro
..mx. success °f the opposing ticket
They cannot," he says, "disguise
themselves again."

Property Formally Turned Over to
the New Company.
PHILADELPHIA, Pa., Nov. 30.— The ex
istence of the Philadelphia. & Reading rail
road ended at 12 o'clock tonight, and in its
place was born the Philadelphia & Reading
Railway company, which is now being op
erated under the charter of the national, or,
as it shortly will be called, the Reading
company. At the hour named the receivers
turned over all the railroads and franchises
in their possession.
The Reading company, it is understood,
has made a deed to Messrs. Coster and Stet
son, and these gentlemen have executed a
deed to the Philadelphia & Reading Railway
company, transferring the property to them,
but in view of the fact that the Coal & 'lron
company was, not sold at the foreclosure sale,
as was the railroad, it was not necessary to
go through the same legal routine in making
the transfer, and its property and franchises
therefore were deeded by the purchasers to
the new company.
The claim of the Lehigh Valley, it is un
derstood, has not been fully adjusted, only
the terms of that year to the account with'
the receivers have been settled. No one
seems to know when the securities of the
new company will be ready for issue. They
include $114,000,000 general mortgage 100-year
4 per cent gold bonds, $28,000,000 non-cumu
lative 4 per cent preferred stocks, $42,000 000
non-cumulative 4 per cent second preferred
Btock, and $70,C00.000 common stock.
President Harris issued a circular, in which
it was stated that First Vice President Voor
hees, besides having charge of the operating
of the railroad, would also have jurisdiction
over the passenger business. Second Vice
President Henderson is to have charge of all
the freight business.

Trouble In South America Assuming
Serious Proportions.
NEW YORK, Nov. 30.— A dispatch to
the Herald from Buenos Ayres, says:
The revolution is assuming alarming
proportions. The federal troops have
met with disaster at the hands of the
insurrectionists, who crossed the Bra
zilian border into Uruguay. President
Borda has received a dispatch from
Cerrb Largo, near the Brazilian fron
tier, which says that Gen. Muniz, the
Uruguayan commander who pursueA
j Saraiva, overtook the latter and was
] defeated in a battle which followed.
Gen. Muniz is reported to have been
taken prisoner. His son, who was>
captured on the frontier some days
ago, is dead. It is not known whethei
he was killed by the orders of Saraiva,
as his body was found by a parti>mak
ing a reconnolsance near Villa de Cerro
i Largo in the ruins of a house which
I had been burned by the rebels. The
I body was charred, but it was recog
j nized as that of young Segundo Muniz.
President Borda's report also states
that before Gen. Muniz met Saraiva in
battle, the latter sent a message to the
Uruguayan general, saying that if he
were not pursued further toward the
border, Gen. Munlz's son should be re
leased, otherwise he would be killed.
Gen. Muniz replied that his duty to
i his country was above his love as a
i father.
Gen. Gumercindo Saraiva was the
chief of the revolutionary party in Rio
Grande do Sul, Brazil, from April, 1894.
I until the end of the rebellion there.
I From the time the rebellion ended, un
j til the present time, little has been
I heard of Saraiva. His surrender prac
i tically ended the hostilities In Rio

, Amendments to the By-Laws Adopt
ed by the Council.
PHILADELPHIA, Pa., Nov. 30.— The su
preme council o£ the American Legion of
Honor, Supreme Commander John N. Groin
presiding, met in special session today at the
Lafayette hotel.' Fifteen states were repre
sented, and thirty-eight members were pres
ent. The business of the special session con
sisted in the discussion of an amendment
to the laws governing the reinstatement of
suspended members, and the following by
laws w re adopted:
A member who has been suspended, to be
reinstated, shall n ake a writen application
for reinstatement and be re-examined and
furnish a favorable certificate from the med

executive committee of the supreme council.
Surh examination, together with the full
amount of all assessments called on or be

WASHINGTON, Nov. 30.— The first officer
to fall a victim to what is known as the
Chandler amendment to the last naval appro
priation act is Lieut. J. F. Miegs, -retired,
and his resignation has been accepted, to take
effect at the end of the present fiscal year.
The Chandler amendment prohibits a naval
officer from accepting employment with any
private concern under contract to furnish
supplies to the government, and as Lieut.
Miegs has been employed for several years
as an ordnance expert with the Bethlehem
Iron company, which is furnishing armor
plate to the navy department, it became
necessary for him to elect whether he should
remain on the naval list or continue in civil
employment. As the latter, it is understood,
pays him between $5,000 and $10,000 per an
num, while his pay as a retired lieutenant
was but ?T5 per month, his choice was
quickly made.

Several Decisions of General Inter
est Handed Down.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 30.— The su
preme court, in an opinion by Justice
Gray, refused today to grant the relief
asked by the state of Nebraska in tie
case of that state against the Missouri
Pacific railroad company. The rail
road company declined to allow the?
erection of an elevator on land belong
ing to that corporation, notwithstand
ing an order from the state board ot
transportation. It appeared that in
this case, the Farmers' Alliance ot
Elmwood, Neb., had sought and were
refused the privilege of erecting a.
grain elevator at the town of Elm
wood and that upon this refusal, the
board of transportation issued an or
der requiring the company to grant
the privilege. The Nebraska supreme
court when appealed to, rendered a ce
cision adverse to the company which
took out a writ of error to the United
States supreme court. Justice Gray,
in the course of his opinion today, said
that the case involved no question of
rates, but that carefully analyzed, it
appeared as a case in which a volun
tary association of persons sought to
secure for themselves certain privileges
from the railroad company and to
compel the donation of land for ele
vator purposes. He dwelt upon the
fact that the alliance was not a cor
poration but was a voluntary associa
tion of individuals. Under these cir
cumstances, he said, the court was
unanimously of the opinion that tha
proceeding was an attempt to take
private property for private use with
out due process of law and in viola
-1 tion of the constitution.
The solicitor general moved to ad
vance on the docket the Las Vegas
land grant case, on the plea that it
was likely to abate by the retirement
from office of Commissioner Lamoreaux
of the general land office. The motion
was taken under advisement.
The court dismissed the case of the
Chicago & Northwestern Railway Com
pany vs. the City of Chicago, on the
ground of want of jurisdiction. The
case is one in which the railway com
pany seeks to prevent the condemna
tion of ground for a street crossing
over railroad tracks by the city.
Justice White delivered the opinion
of the court in the case of Pleasant
i Draper vs. the United States. This
j case involved the question of the juris
-1 diction of the state courts of Montana
over crime committed by persons not
Indians in Indian reservations. Draper,
who i3 a negro, was convicted in che
United States circuit court for the
Montana district of (he murder of an
other negro in the Crow Indian reser
vation. He brought the case to the
supreme court on a writ of error, al
i leging- want of jurisdiction on the part
jof the federal court. The supreme
I court sustained this view of the case
j and remanded the case for transfer to
! the state courts for prosecution. The
prosecution in the federal courts relied
upon the clause in the Montana enab
ling act providing that "Indian lands
j shall remain under the absolute juris
diction and control of the congress of
the United States."
The district court of the Southern
district of lowa was reversed in the
case of A. A. Edgington because the
court had refused to accept evidence
of the good character of the defendant,
who was accused of perjury in a pen
sion case. "Whatever," said Justicn
Shiras, in delivering the opinion, "may
have been said in some of the earlier
cases, the decided weight of authorit>
now is that good character when con
sidered in connection with the other
evidence in a case may generate a
reasonable doubt."
Most Satisfactory Result* Attained
SliOTrn for This Year.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 30.— The report of Mr.
I Kimball, the general superintendent of. the
life-saving service, for the year ending June
30, exhibits the most satisfactory results yet
accomplished by that servic?. Although the
total number of disasters was greater than
In any prior year, the percentage of lives and
property lost was less.
At the close of the year the establishment
I comprised 256 stations, of which 18G were
I located on the Atlarjic and gulf coasts, 55 on
'■ the Great Lakes, 14 on the Pacific coast and
j one at th« Palis of the Ohio, Louisville. Ky.
i The number of disasters to vessels within the
I scope of the service was 437. involving 4,608
I persons, of whom but thirteen were lost. The |
■ estimated value of the vessels was $3,880,110 j
! and of the cargoes J3,546,350. aggregating a I
! toial of $12,72«,020. Of this amount $1,432,750
was lost. The number of vessels totally lost '
was sixty-seven.
There were also during the year 2V, casual- !
ties to undocumented craft, sailboats, row
boats, etc. Of the 394 persons on board, SST
were saved and 7 lost. The value of the j
property in those casualties is estimated at
$119,265, of which $114, 910 was saved.
The total number of shipwrecked persons
succored at stations was 613. The total num
ber of days' succor afforded was 1,436.
Other persons (not on board vessels) to the
number of eighty-two were rescued from
drowning, all of whom would probably have
perished but for the vigilance and prompt
! assistance of the life-saving crews. In 154
i instances the life-saving crews assisted other
i agencies in saving property valued at $3,599,-
I 775, out of a total of $3,875,615 imperiled. Less
important assistance was rendered to 167
i other vessels in distress. The patrolmen also
warned from danger by their night signals
210 vessels, and by day signals 19. The* loss
I of life and property averted in these 223 in
j stances, of course, cannot be estimated, but
; the circumstances under which a large pro
portion of the warnings were made indicate
I that it must have been very considerable.
The cost of maintaining the service for the
year was $1,401,505. Attention is invited to
: the inadequacy of the compensation of the
• superintendents of life-saving districts and
their crews.

SAN FRANCISCO, Cal., Nov." 30.— A contest
was begun today over the $3,000,000 estate of

Old Trust Agreement Agala rm<

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., Nov. 30.—Manufac
turers from all of the states in the Union,
that produce glass met at the Dennison
hotel today to see if something could be done
to reorganize the trust and consolidate in
terests that have been badly fractured. The
visible supply has run down low, and many
of the Indiana factories are preparing to start
up full handed, while some of the Eastern
manufacturers are delayed for want of fuel.
This afternoon the glass men decided to
tighten up the old associations, have the
Plttsburg and Western associations work to
gether, though independently, and to hold
wages and prices at the same figures as al
ready agreed upon. The factories will resume,
Dec. 14, as per old agreement, and those that
have broken away will not be disciplined.
Nor will they be asked to shut down until
I the others start up. Tomorrow the associa
! tions will consider several plans for selling
the product. .
