Hi EXPENSE OF MANNING CRUISING SHU'S IS LARGE AND INCREASING RIVAL BUREAU OF EOUiPMEBT ANNUAL REPORT OF ITS CHIEF TOUCHES UPON MANY SUBJECTS FOR A CABLE IN THE PACIFIC T.he Navy Has Completed Its Sub marine Survey and Reports a Route That Is Entire ly Feasible. WASHINGTON, Nov. 14.— report of Admiral Bradford, chief of the naval bureau of equipment, records unprece dentedly large expenditures by cruising ships during the last fiscal year and the disbursment of large amounts for freight involved in the transportation of stores. Admiral Brandford sets forth the de sirability of a naval station at Guam, emphasizing the importance of the is land as a naval base. He counts rapid improvement work at the Cavite naval station and the completion of a steel "cold storage house at Pago Pago, on thi island of Tutuila, Samoa. A new floating dry dock for the naval station at Al giers, La., Is to be completed by May, 1901. The amount of coal being consumed by the navy is increasing year by year and its cost last year averaged nearly $2 a ton more than during the fiscal year of 1898. Admiral Bradford again renews his recommendation for new naval coal depots. The bureau recommends the Installation of the Marconi system of wireless tele graphy on board of several ships of the navy, providing it can be done at a reas onable cost. Experiments In this system of signalling have proven successful in the main, in the trials made by ships of the North Atlantic squadron, although -quite a serious defect has been dis covered. In the event that two vessels using the system should attempt to sig nal a single port or vessel simultaneous ly, the receiving station or ship is found to be unable to distinguish between the messages sent to it. TRANS PACIFIC CABLE. The report says that the survey by the United. States ship Nero for a trans-Pa cific submarine telegraph cable to Hon olulu and the Philippine islands was most successful, and that a satisfactory route for an all-American cable to con nect the Pacific coast with the outlying colonial possessions of the United States in the Pacific and with China and Japan, has been discovered, surveyed and » mapped. The bureau is now ready to lay the cable at any time. The attention of the department is - ".'tiled to the necessity for a survey of the western Pacific ocean. Many re ported "danger spots" appear on the charts, whoso absolute danger is doubt ful, thus giving rise to a great deal of uncalled for solicitude among navigators. Two parties, were sent to the field by the naval observatory to witness the to tal eclipse of the sun on May 28, i.OO '♦he result says Admiral Bradford, was - as a whole, successful, their being, how ever, some failures with minor instru ments. Attention is called to the fact that another total eclipse of the sun will occur May 17, 1901 which will be re markable on account of the long dura tion of the totality and of the high atti tude of the sun. An estimate to enable the observatory to send an expedition to witness this eclipse will be submitted. UNCLE SAM'S MAILS. - postmaster General Smith Favors Rural Free Delivery.

M.-The commis sioner of Interna] revenue In reply from New York as to whether "revenue stamps are required upon an assignment of f, mortgage, executed and delivered subse quent to July 1, 1898, the mortgage hay „ ing been issued and recorded prior to that date and therefore not taxable," has ren dered a decision to the effect that "a tax accrues on every assignment of a mort gage based upon the amount of money remaining secured thereby, upon a re lease based upon the unexpired term; or, a policy of life insurance based upon the amount of insurance remaining in force under the assignment; on a fire, marine and casualty insurance policy, based upon the unearned premium.'* COMING LEGISLATION.

Native Population Reported in a Sad State of Destitution. WASHINGTON, Nov. 14.—The census bureau recently completed the" enumera tion of the district of Alaska. The schedules have been received at the office, and are how in process of tabulation. The director of the census today gave out the following statement with refer ence to the work in the great territory: "Mr. Samuel D. Dunham, who . had charge of the work in the northern dis trict, returned' to Washington a few days ago and submitted, his financial re port. He left Washington on this work in May, 1899. •. . - '.:,„_. "The native and mixed population of the northern district of Alaska is 12,652. The most populous district with respect to the native population ,Is the country lying between the month of the Yukon and the Kuskoquin rivers, and extend ing back from the coast 100 miles. Mr. Maurice Johnson, the- agent far this dis trict, traveled over 2,000 miles with dog teams during the winter and enumerated 3,013 persons, all of whom.were Indians. The Indians in this region are probably the most destitute people in the North American,continent. Mr. Johnson reports that from Dec. 1 to March 15 he visited seventy-four interior villages, and during the time saw but three fires burning in the shades of dugouts. The poor creat ares huddle together in their miserable dwellings during-the long winter and sub sist on frozen fish and a little seal oil, which they secure on the coast during the summer. The fur-bearing animals, which formerly furnished them with nat ural clothing, are nearly extinct, and they have been forced to adopt the white man's garb, and as thelt poverty prevents them f 10m securing enough to cover their nakedness there is great suffering from the cold. The spiritual condition of these neglected natives is no better than the physical, as the missionaries devote their attention to the more attractive fields in the gold regions and along the river, where their good work may be seen. "The Nome district is the most pop ulous in Northern Alaska. The enumer ation showed a permanent white popu lation on June 1 of 2,704. During the sum mer about 18,000 people landed at Nome, abcut 2,500 of these coming from Dawson. About 12,000 have returned to their homes in the States, leaving about 0,000 people in the region contiguous to Nome. It 1-, probable that' the population of the town of Nome during "the winter'will be be tween 4,00 and 5,000." DECISION IS IMPORTANT. United States Forestry Act Is Held Unconstitutional. FRESNO, Cal.j Nov. 14.—According to a decision today by United States Dis trict Judge Wellborn in the case of Lee Blasingame, it is held that the act of June 30, IS9B, authorizing the secretary of the interior to make regulations for the protection of forest reserves is uhcon*. stitutional, because in effect it delegates by congress legislative powere to an ad ministrative officer. The decision, it is claimed, practically throws open to the sheep men all the reservations, though they are still liable in civil suits for damages for trespass ing. United States Attorney Flint will appeal. - » New Presidential Ptistofflces.

' "\ '"'"[■■'' THURSDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 15, 1900. ■ ft! 11 ill GERMAN PRESS INCLINED TO CRIT ICISE WILHELM'S CHINESE % POLICY be says he mm MORE &mi FINANCIAL BILL. INTRODUCED IN THE REICHSTAG BY THE GOVERNMENT. LOAN OF $270,000,000 MARKS Is Necessitated by the Extraordinary Expenditure's to Sustain the Prestige of Germany in the Orient. BERLIN, Nov. 14.— reichstag re assembled today." The speech from the throne dealt at considerable length on the events in China, which have excited such deep emotion among civilized peop:e, .saying: ..; ", y? >.■;.-. . "Fanatical hate and dark superstition, incited by unscrupulous advisers of the court, have driven misguided Chinese to acts of atrocity against the outposts of Western civilization and ' Christian wor ship dwelling peacefully In their midst. "My j minister died at the hand of an assasin in a courageous attempt to over come the rising peril. The foreigners at the capital 'saw themselves" threatened, life and limb. These things of horror united the civilized community, where otherwise there was a divergence. All nations against which the unparalleled onslaught was directed drew closer. Their sons fought with one mind, should er to shoulder, even as yonder standards float side by side. So the governments show themselves in council, united with the sole wish to restore an orderly state of things as speedily as possible, and after the punishment of the chief cul prits, avert a recurrence In the future of such a disturbance of the peace of the world.',' In announcing that the relations of Germany with all the powers are good, the speech recalls his majesty's so row at the assaslnation of King Humbert of Italy, saying he was "ray ally and dtar < friend, who fell a victim to a damnable outrage." -,;; : ■ - The speech then continues: "I would sooner j have consulted the reichstag on the matter in China, but for the neces sity for prompt action and the difficulty of furnishing reliable information. Whenever the reichstag could -form a decision or estimate the expenditure re quired, the government felt confident that the representatives would not re cuse their subsequent sanction to the necessary expenditure." FOR A CUSTOMS TARIFF. Turning to domestic matters, his majes ty said that in consequence of the natural growth of the revenue and the increased taxation voted last session, more abun dant funds were available in almost every branch of life in the empire, espe cially for measures for the benefit of workers and for the defense of the coun try. A customs tariff, he added, would probably be laid before the bundesrath curing the present session. The spec -h concluded by announcing various " bills which would be Introduced. Tne ceremony of opening the reichstag occurred at noon in the Knights hall of the Schloss, in the presence of the em peror. --vt the conclusion of the speech from the throne, Emperor William was warm ly cheered and Count yon Buelow, the' imperial chancellor, formally declared the session opened. Several of the evening papers announce that the German financial bill, sub mitted to the federal council, shows that to balance the. sum of 2,240,947,301 marks will be required. The bill empowers the 'imperial chancellor to raise a loan of 97,286,384 marks and to issue treasury bills to the amount of 175,000,000 marks to strengthen the ordinary working capi . tal of the imperial treasury. A bill providing for a third supplemen tary credit on account of the China ex pedition will be submitted to the reich stag. - EXPLANATION AS TO CHINA. A memorandum accompanies the bill explaining that the uprising in China was at first such that its suppression could be left to the Chinese government, but it assumed a form menacing to the whole foreign community. Its object was then clear, namely, the exclusion of the whole foreign element by a relght of terror. It is added that the Chinese government, if not unwilling, was at least incapable of controlling the movement, and the powers had to protect their subjects, the military forces of all the powers partici pating to an equal degree in the restora tion of order. To stop international military action now would bring about a fresh sacrifice of time and the lives of peaceful inhabitants. Nevertheless, the object of such action was solely the res toration of tranquility in China. Its task did not go beyond the suppression of open hostilities and all attacks upon the inner life of China, not essentially necessary, were being avoided. The supplementary credit bill asks for 125,750,000 marks; It being assumed that China will eventually pay all the costs incurred by Germany. The Liberal papers express dissatisfac tion with the reasons adduced in the speech from the throne for the emperor not obtaining the sanction of the relch stag before sending the Chinese expedi tion. The Kreuz Zeitung, the organ of t.ie Prussian junker squirarchy, while approving the speech asserts that the right will not be able to support the gov ernment on every kind of question during the session. y' •"-v The National Zeitung says: "Parlia ment, of course, will grant the expendi-, ture demanded, but it must clearly give the government to understand that in the future it expects different treatment." This afternoon Emperor William went to Silesia for a long trip. EARTHQUAKE WAS SEVERE. Many Thousand Buildings Were De- stroyed in Colombia. WASHINGTON, Nov. 14.— Russell, United States charge at the Caracas, reports that an earthquake in | Colombia last month was very much more severe than at first described. The people de serted their houses and slept In the streets, and between . 12,000 and 15,000 buildings were destroyed or damaged. LETTER CARRIER MURDERED.

WASHINGTON, Nov. 14.—M. G. Brum baugh, commissioner., of education . for Porto Rico, says the school system now In operation there includes SCO teachers and 38,000 pupils. This is only a begin ning, as there are. 300,000 children of school age without school facilities, most of whom would 'enroll if they could. . Commissioner. Brumbaugh says the hope of the island.is in the public schools, and that the great illiteracy in Porto Rico must be reduced. The schools are not to be compared' with American systems, but their transformation must be gradual. The report ' says that the present school law should be wholly abrogated at the coming session of the insular legislature, for many reasons, and a new law passed." + A change in the licensing of teachers is needed to pro tect good teachers "from the competi tions and 'machinations of worthless teachers and from the j pernicious inter ference of politicians." .... . The report urges ■?■ closer supervision, and qotes Dr. Groff^ :formerly acting commissioner', as saying that the super visors of the : schools-; were at first ex soldiers, ex-teamsters, ex-packers and other such men, and they had to teach English in addition, but now they are are men .as qualified^ as -',the salary can commend, and the work requires their entire time. There are: over 500 Ameri can .teachers engaged in the schools, and the demand is for more, provided they know enough Spanish to instruct the children in their native tongue. Thousands of children in this island, says the report, are half-clothed, half fed and half-housed. At least SO per cent of all the people' are illiterate, and the crying need is schools to reduce the appalling illiteracy. There.are no public school buildings, and no public colleges or universities. '-\ ■ ■:■ ■'" \.\ ° TO RECLAIM ARID LANDS HALF A MILLION ACRES IN MON TANA TO BE IRRIGATED. WASHINGTON, Nov. 14.-Two Impor tant subjects to be discussed by the ir rigation convention at ; Chicago next week and to be urged .on congress this session for appropriations are projects for the irrgation of the arid lands of of the Milk river valley in Montana, and for furnishing a big reservoir plant for the Pima and Maricopa Indians in the Gula region in Arizona.

CHICAGO, Nov. 14.— National Civic Federation has issued the following an nouncement, calling an annual confer ence to consider the best means to secure conciliation and arbitration in the set tlement of industrial disputes: : "No phase of our modern industrial de velopment is more interesting than the study and observation of the methods of conciliation and ! arbitration as applied during recent years to the adjustment of difficulties and grievances that constant ly arise between labor and capital. "Strikes and lockouts are perhaps a greater waste of human energy, and re sponsible for a greater loss of wealth to society as a whole than any other ob structive factor connected with mod ern industrialism.

Recognizing the new claims arising from modern in dustrial conditions, the National Civic Federation will hold a national conference in Chicago on Dec. 17 and 18 to consider in all its bearings the principles of con ciliation and arbitration. "It is the object of the National Civic Federation to make the coming confer ence as practicable as possible by bring ing together both the labor leaders and leaders of Industry who are the most di rectly concerned, and without whose good will no system can be imposed. .

OMAHA, Nov. 14.—A special to the World-Herald, from Kearney, Neb., to night gays: There was a large sized mutiny at the Kearney Military academy today which resulted in an entire change of management of the school. - The trouble was over a disagreement between the principal,- Dr. . Chittenden, and Prof. Russell, chief instructor, and resulted in Russell resigning and leaving the school. The teachers and pupils, to the number of about forty, believing that Prof. Rus sell had not been fairly dealt with, quit the academy in a body and came down town. The boys, who are nearly all non residents of Kearney, had nowhere to go and Russell obtained lodging for them at a hotel and this morning began arrange ments to open a school of his own. The Kearney military academy is under the , manage of the Episcopal church, and as soon as Bishop Graves learned of the trouble he immediately took steps to have the matter adjusted, with the result. that Dr. Chittenden resigned the management of the school' and Prof. Russell was put in charge.

The Mystic'Shriners at Osman Temple last night entertained as their special guest, Samuel R. Van Sant, who is him self a member of the order. - Preliminary to the regular -meeting of the shrine in the evening, a brief informal reception was tendered the distinguished Winonan early in the evening. It had been designed to extend this function into a more elaborate affair, but the guest of honor was a little late in reaening the temple and the hospitalities were offered without any pretenses of ceremony, which did not, however, detract from the in terest of the occasion. Capt. Van Sant remained during the session of the shrine later, to witness sev eral pilgrims make their initial venture across the desert and receive the port" folio of the order. There were several prominent membsrs of the order down from Duluth. A very elaborate banquet followed the secret session, all the Shriners partici pating heartily in" this part of the pro gramme. The new members were given the opportunity of relating their expe riences on the "desert," and some excel lent toasts were delivered. SUBMARINE TELEPHONING. Capt. Lorcher. Talks From.

'.: 1111 ill PROTESTANT EPISCOPAL CHURCH AND PERSONS WHO HAVE BEEN DIVORCED SIRRED OUT FROM THE FOLD NEW AND STRICTER CANON RE GARDING REMARRIAGE OF OFFENDERS REPORT MADE BY COMMITTEE Will Come Up for Adoption and Probably _ Become Part of (lurch Law at Next Conference. NEW YORK. Nov. 14.-When the gen- Cl nferf UCe of the Protestant Rpie, copal church meets in San Francisco next October, three, new canons on the sub il^fi -marriasre and divorce will be £ <£ ef°,\ l: he body for lts considera tion Should these canons become. a law of the Episcopal church through the ap, proval of the general conference the . the Episcopal church will have pronounced Its anathema against divorce, and more particularly against the remarrying of divorced persons, while another parfv to the divorce still is in life. The subject of marriage and divorce came in for a good deal of attention at the hands of the general Episcopal con ference of 1898. So much in fact that a committee of twelve was appointed for the purpose of taking the matter under consideration and make such recom mendation to the next conference of that body, as would pave the way for changes in the present tenets of the church on these subjects. This committee, after having met a year ago, when, it failed to reach an agreement looking toward reform, again went into session today. At the- close of this session it was announced that the conference of the committee had been adjourned sine die and that three canons dealing with the subject .of the confer ence had been drafted. ( The first canon adopted is '-"entitled"* "Holy matrimony and impediments there, to." The full text of this canon is as follows: MATRIMONY DEFINED. Section 1—(A) Holy matrimony Is an estate of life which for the purposes of this canon is sufficiently defined In the form appointed for the solemnization of matrimony in this church. (B) The sol emnization of holy matrimony is a serv ice where the mutual consent of the par ties is given in the presence of a minis ter, who then pronounces them in the name of the Holy Trinity to be man and wife. ■•■-'.. .- • • " RULES LAID DOWN. 7 Sec. 2—This section defines the impedi ments of . consanguinity and affinity as. stated in the books of Leviticus and Deuteronomy. The second canon draft ed deals . with ' the subject of the "Sol emnization of < holy matrimony." It in subdivided in four sections, as* follow.' •• Section .I—lt shall be the duty of all ministers? of this church ' to conform to the civil -authorities relating to mar riage. .. - r Sec.. 2—Every minister who shall sol emnize a marriage, shall without delay make such record of same as may be required by the law of this church and civil authority. Sec.. 3—No minister shall solemnize marriage without the presence of wit nesses, nor without witnesses to whom the parties are personally known exceot in a case in which it is impossible for such Witnesses to be secured. No minister shall solemnize the marriage of any per son not Identified to his satisfaction Sec. 4—No minister shall solemnize marriage between any. two persons un less, nor until, by inquiry, he shall have satisfied himself that neither party has been or is the husband or wife of any person living unless the former marriage was armuled by decree of some court of competent jurisdiction- for cause exist ing before such former marriage. MAY NOT REMARRY. The third canon goes one step further and excludes from all means of grace within the dispensation of the church a' y divorced . person who shall have remar ried and be living with, husband or wUe as the case may be while the other party to the divorce still Is In life. This canon is subdivided into three sections, as fol lows: . .-'•:■-'. Section 1. No person divirced for caus es arising after marriage and marrying again during the lifetime of the other party to the divorce shall be admitted to baptism or confirmation or receive holy communion, except when penitent and separated from the other party to the subsequent marriage, or when peni tent and in immediate danger or' death, but -this canon shall not apply to the Innocent party in a divorce for the c.iuse of adultery. Sec. 2. No person shall be denied bap tism or confirmation or the holy com munion until after the minister shall have given to the person due and suffi cient notice of such intended denial and of the right of appeal therefrom as here and after permitted. Sec. .'!. This section provides for appeal to the bishop if the diocese or mission ary district, which. If he deems the cause sufficient may take counsel with two neighboring bishops and decide whether there shall be any dispensation.
