At Paris the Understanding Ik That
the I Itiimi ( am of America Will
Be Rejected, With Assurances
From Both Bides That There Will
Be No Real Resumption of Hos
tilities Europe Interested.
PARIS, Nov. 24.— -Spain seems ready
to Invest $20,000,000 in pride. It can
not, of course, be foretold what action
the Madrid commissioners will take
next Monday, when the limit of the
American ultimatum expires, but
among public men the Impression Is
general that the offer of the United
States will be rejected. This does not
mean more war. Not by any means.
Spain's defiance Is to be purely spec
tacular. The commissioners will part
without any formal agreement, but ac
oording to the programme as It Is un
derstood here, Spain will agree to re
tire in tho Philippines whenever the
Americans appear and yield without a
strutTKle, while the United States will
be bound by tho private agreement not
to attn<-k tli(i Spanish coast. The pride
of the Spanish ministry will not per
mit thorn to sign away the Philippines,
and they prefer to have them taken by
a show of force and lose $20,000,000 by
the operation. Other articles of the
private agreement will be, It is said: '
The present negotiations to be discon
tinued without a resumption of hostill- i
t'ubu and Purto Rico to be evac
uated, according to the terms of the
protoc oL
This arrangement, as was pointed out
!'luy, would enable Spain to set
tle the debt question without foreign
complications. It would deprive other I
Countries, Germany, for Instance, of a
diplomatic pretext for seizing the Caro
lines lrt payment of the portion of the
repudiated feiianish debt held abroad.
Hpaln ha», of course, finally abandon
ed all hope of financial relief beyond
the terms specified in Monday's note.
fsho has also ceased to expect any
Buropaan diplomatic aid. Not only
this, but sh" fears, and with good rea-
Bon, that she may even be despoiled of
her few remaining colonial possessions
by the cold-blooded European diplom
acy to which she appealed In vain
during the past jrear.
Semi-official correspondence Is now
taking place between Senor Montero
RkM and Judge Day upon certain '
points of th< American ultimatum and
also upon other matters. The most
Important Question asked by Montero
Rios Is whether the Americans reall>
meant that their ultimatum must be
answered next Monday, He has been
Informed that when the Americans said
"Monday, Nov. 25," they meant that
exact date. The Spanish answer will
probably be postponed to the latest
limit, Monday next, In order that this
exchange of views may be completed.
European Interest In the Philippine
question now centers In the question
whether or not the "open-door" policy
will be followed by the Americans tn
the archipelago The report in tho af-
Brmative has destroyed the last hope
I may have had of finding help
from any European power in prevent'
Ing the cession of the archipelago. In
some quarter* it is held that President
RfcKlnley has been driven to this pol

now being asked whether or not the
same course will be pursued In Cuba
and Porto Rico, but of that the Euro
pean public has not much hope.
One French Journalist remarks that
the fact that so ardent a protectionist
as President McKinley should accept
or consider accepting free trade for the
Philippines is ground for serious reflec
tion on the part of France. All our
colonial difficulties with England come
from our trying to shut out from our
colonies all the other powers by means
of prohibitive tariffs.
"It would be strange," he continues,
"If the expansion of protectionist
America should revolutionize the pol

An A lit slicny Woman Victim of n
Peculiar Assault.
PITTSBURG, Pa.. Nov. 24. — Miss
Nora Bitner, a highly respected vioung
lady of Allegheny, was beaten so badly
this afternoon by three girls (none of
■whom were over fifteen years of age)
that she will probably die. Her as
eallanta, Mamie Wright, Sophia Mickle
and Victoria Bennett, are in Jail. The
cause of the assault is rather mysteri
ous. It seems that Miss Bitner, -with
a young: lady companion, was walking
along East Ohio street, and, In pass
ing a group of young girls at play, she
made some jocular remark concerning
the party, whereupon one of th*
youngsters grabbed her by the hair
and pulled her to the ground. While
prostrate, Miss Bitner was kicked on
tho head and beaten into insensibility.
Her companion was unable to protect
her. and a rescue was only effected
when xilve women came upon the scene.

SANTIAGO. Nov. 24.— El Porvonlr
prints a two-column article with refer
ence to the Intention of a colored
preacher of Topeka, Kan., to bring
thirty families of negroes and estab
lish a town In the highlands above
Santiago, which shall be known as
Toptka. El Porvenir demands that the
people boycott the Yankee negroes, as
serting that they are frequently guilty
of horrible crimes, and that the
Southern states, anxious to be rid of
their colored population, will endeavor
to send them to Cuba, It alludes to
the San Luis incident, stating that all
Yankee negroes are on a par, and that
they will ruin the country, as they are
able to live on practically nothing.
The paper maintains that the Cubans
have a right to regulate immigration
Into the island; that they object to

"Trade will follow the flag only as we are

The Associated Charities was placed in a

DUL.UTH, Minn., Nov. 24.— (Special.)
—^The Bteamer Qsceola, of the Port Hu

here tonight after an experience that
steamers do not often go through. In
the heavy gale of Tuesday morntatg
the steamier wenit ashore on Mott Isl
and, which Is near Isle Royale, In Ca
nadian waters, striking at 6:30 in the
mxvrnlng. When the steamer went
ashore the wind was Wowing from the
northwe«t, and as <the boat waa on the
south side of the Island the crew began
to lighter the vessel to permit her slid
ing off.
While at this work the wind changed
and began to blow from the northeast.
Tills caoißed the boat to go further on
the lslaxid the more she was lightered.
Then the work stopped, and so desper
ate seemed the situation that the crew
left the vessel and abandoned her to
her fate. It took from 9:80 in the morn
ing un/tll 3 in the afternoon to get the
men off, so heavy was the sea.
Capt. J. C. McLeod, the ship's master,
kept some matches from g^ttimjf wet

kindled on sihore and the ctrew was
saved from suffering the hardships that
they would have endured had a fire
been impossible.
Early the next moaning 1 the wind
changed again, blowing from the north
west once more. This shoved the boat
off the Island, and the crew, managing
to reach the vessel, came into port last
night, after as narrow an escape from
death as has occurred on the lakes in

"Worn All Over the Field, but His
Efforts Proved Unavailing ,
He Made All Chicago* Point*.
CHICAGO, Nov. 24. — The Western
football championship goes to Michi
gan. On a field that was simply per
fect for fast football, and before a
crowd of fully 12.000, the maroon of
Chicago, went down before the maize
and blue, of Michigan, today, by a
score of 12 to 11. Michigan's score rep
resents two touchdowns, goals being;
kicked in each Instance. Chicago made
one touchdown, a goal and a goal from,
placement. The reversal of form
shown by the Michigan men sinoe
they barely succeeded in defeating
Northwestern was something remarka
ble. The Michigan nine, In which big
holes were torn by the light North
western team, was simply Impregna
ble today, with the exception of about .
ten minutes in the second half, when
the Chicago men, with defeat staring
them In the face, pushed their oppo
nents aside with apparent ease. Even
in the punting, Michigan was not much
inferior, as, although Hershberger's
kicks wer« longer than Caley'e, yet the
lafcter'B, as a rule, were better placed.
Hersttberger was a big factor in the
game. Every one of Chicago's eleven
points were made by the stocky little
half back. He kicked a goal from a
plaoe on the forty-<five-yard line in the
first half and scored the touchdown
and goal during Chicago's desperate
rally near the close of the second half.

two teams were altogether different.

go, on the contrary, üßed trick plays
throughout. Several substantial gains
were made by double passes, but In
several instances the playe on account
of the good work of the Michigan ends,
Bennett and Snow, resulted in actual
loss of ground. Team work of a high
