■ 10 HI II VNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND MED ICAL. STtDEXTS SHAVE OIF FRESHMAN'S MISTACHE 'ARE FINED IN POLICE COURT Try to Force Henry Sclmrnmii Out of the School—Declares That lie rr«iicse« to SttcU in Spite of Opposition. BALTIMORE, Feb. 20.—The students of the University of Maryland Medical t.chool are determined to maintain the institution of hazing. Henry P. Schur man, a freshman, is equally determined r.ot to submit to hazing, * and Justice Pee, a descendant of the poet, is mak ing the hazers pay for their fun as tiearly as possible. The authorities of tin University of Maryland are standing 6ft, taking no part in the controversy. The university is one aof the oldest mi dical colleges in the country, but it exercises no supervision over the stu dents, most of whom are grown-up men. They are required only to attend the lec tures and clinics and to pass their ex aminations. Mr. Sehurman has a wife and two chil dren. The second class men cons.-er, however, that, despite his years, Schur man, as a freshman, must remove his mustache. This he refused to do, ar:cl gave a drubbing to several who tried t-» use force. Saturif^r. however, while n< the dissecting room, Schurman was set upon by a gang and held while his prized mustache was cut off. POLICE TAKE A HAND. Ho reported the matter to Dean Cook of tile university and linding no relief there went to the police station. He showed the blood-red marks upon his throat, and secured a warrant for Guy P. Asper, the principal offender. Justice Pop levied a fine of $25. The student body of the university, fiom the seniors to the freshmen, de nounced Schurman for taking the matter to the police court as a breach of college ethics, and cut him dead. The freshmen class expelled him. Schurman said he it tended the medical school to get a diplo ma, and was not worrying about the rest of the class. As Schurman entered the college build ing yesterday, he was rushed and hustled and jostled about until his ideas were thoroughly confused. Schurman was again attacked as he left the buildir.;, and again applied to Justice Poe. L. PL Gurley, vice president of the freshmen class, and E. M. Edmondson, of the Paltimore College of Dental Surgery, who came up to get into the game, were arrested, and after a stressful trial each ■was fined $10 and costs. STUDENTS' PARADE. Several hundreds of the students par eded to 662 West Fayette street, where Schurman lives with his wife. With loud cries of "We want Goo-goo. Com.' Goo-goo,"' they surged up to the front door, to be pushed back by a squad of police. Cooper Drewery refused to give •way, and was arrested. The students last night burned Justico Poe in effigy. The judge referred to the matter while trying Drewey this morn ing, and made another speech to the body of students who packed his court room. Then he made Drewey pay 56.45 for his fun. fechurman says: T will stick It out at the university, and intend to graduate, no matter what action is taken by the class. Were I a young man I would not have said a \vord about the matter, but would con sider It ?. huge joke. They should confine their pranks to men of their own age. At a mass meeting of the students resolutions were passed maintaining haz ing as a collegiate institution, and de claring their intention of driving Schur man from the school. NARROW ESCAPE FOR KITCHENER EOERS CAPTURED HIS BAGGAGE AND ALMOST GOT THE SIR DAR HIMSELF LONDON, Feb. 21.-A special. dispatch /from Pretoria says the Boers at Klip river, Feb. IS, derailed a train contain ing Gen. Kitchener's baggage. The train was preceded by another on which the ccnimander-in-chief was a passenger. An armored train drove off the Boers, but the latter secured the contents of the train derailed. Lord Kitchener's second narrow escape from capture calls out newspaper warn ings as to the danger of his rapid flit tinss by train from place to place. It is considered better for him to remain in Pretoria than to risk upsetting his care folly elaborated plan of campaign. As Lord Kitchener is now back in Pre toria, the inference is that Gen. Dewet has again escaped from the supposed cordon. There is no further news of Gen French's pursuit of Commandant Gen. Botha" in the Eastern Transvaal. Statements emanate from both Pretoria and Brussels that Mr. Kruger contem plates returning to South Africa. It is said that he has just finished writing a memorial on the war which will be sent to the European governments and to President McKinlty. COLESBURG, Feb. 20.—A train was de railed by the Boers near Jalbosch and looted by natives. Two cars were or dered out and the Biers fned on them, killing two persons and wounding many.

PETERS BURG BOURSE " SETTLERS GOING TO SIBERIA RiiKKlnn Territory in Asia Being' Rupitlly People With Peasants v Anxious to Improve - Their ;, •'.. Condition. ST. PETERSBURG, Friday, Feb. B.— Minister of Finance De Witte is prepar ing to introduce his plan for the reor ganization of the St. Petersburg bourse, which was announced about a year ago. A new section for transactions in public funds will be created which will be so completely in the power of the minister of finance that the newspapers make him responsible for its success. The minister will appoint all the members of the coun dl until the organization is perfected, and will retain permanently the right to confer the choice of council members by the active members of the bourse for public funds. He will also name sixty members of the bourse, and will perma nently retain at his disposal sixty active memberships. Upon his initiative any member may be expelled or excluded from participation in the assembly. The in stitute of the brokers will be placed under stricter supervision. When nomi nated by the minister each will have to make a deposit of 15,000 rubles. The members of the institute of brokers lose the existing privilege of executing the orders of third persons, and w:li be- for bidden to trade on their own account. The rumor that an ordinance had been adopted forbidding contracts to be given to foreign firms, except where absolute ly necessary, proves to have been found ed upon the fact that the metallurgical interests demand this action. A commit tee to investigate the depression in the RUSSIA-"MY COMPLIMENTS, MR. GAGE. YOU ARE A GREAT STATESMAN." —Chicago Inter Ocean. metallurgical branches has reported during the last week, recommending an Increase of the credit line of the Imperial bank, the exclusion of foreigners from government contracts and orders, and the increase of the tariff on imported articles. The first Russian steamer for Persian gulf ports left Odessa a few days ago with 3,000 poods, something less than 500 tons, of petroleum, sugar, textiles and other manufactured articles. The government is being urged to lower the duty on rice in order to secure som» kind of a cargo for the returning ves sels. RIVER NAVIGATION. A congress of waterways interests is being held in this city. Prince Khll koff, minister of ways of communication, addressing the meeting on the day of opening, sketched a programme for a future great highway for the empire, which almost staggers the imagination. He said in spite of the 58,600 kilometers of railroads In Russia, the transporta tion of freight by water had been stead hy increasing until now it amounts an nually to 1,300.000 of poodversts (a pood is thirty-six English pounds and a ve'rst la nearly the same as a kilometer) The mean distance traversed is 770 versts, or more than three times the mean distance in Germany. Referring to the desire of the wate • ways interests to improve the streams and canals, he declared they must event ually be made to accommodate vessels of great burden. MIGRATION TO SIBERIA. The emigration to Siberia promises to attain unusual dimensions this year. Over 7.000 peasants have announce;! their intention of leaving Odessa for the Oussourie country. The immigra tion during the first eight months of ]<.00, when the same rates were in force, amounted to 213,000 persons. The re turn movement amounted to 67,000 per sons, many of whom were, of course, i roepectors returning to report to the v^lagers' assembly. The Amur province Is practically set tled already. The railway minister is inviting competition by owners of auto matic coupler patents. Priaes of 5,000 and 2.000 rubles are offered. The coup lers must be able to operate under the conditions of Russian climate and must be applicable to cars now in service. The council of the empire is deliber ating the introduction of instruction in the Russian language into the schools of Finland. Gov. Gen. Bobrikoff intends to establish Russian libraries in the prin cipal cities of Finland. Traveling libraries will also be intro duced for the use of rural Russians in Finland. OFFICIAL WHITEWASH.

PAUL GLOBE, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 1901. ■ I ill REPORT MADE TO THE NEWSPA PER PUBLISHERS BY FRED ERICK DRISCOLL TO PREVENT LABOR DISPUTES Aureement Favored With the Inter national Typographical Union for a Permanent National Board of Appeals. NEW YORK, Feb. 20.-The large as sembly room of the Waldorf-Astoria was ■«yell filled with prominent newspaper owners and proprietors from all parts of the country when the annual meeting Oi the American Newspaper Publishers' association was called to order thi3 morning. The newspaper men have planned a session covering several days. The annual banquet will be a prominent feature of the meetings. A very important matter, which took up a good part of the afternoon, was the question of arranging a scheme for arbitration in all labor disputes. This vas brought up in a report made by the special commissioner of the association, Col. Frederick Driscoll. He referred to the action of the International Typo graphical union, at its annual meeting in Milwaukee last summer, after which a special standing committee of the Publishers' association was appointed. This committee included Alfred Cowles. of the Chicago Tribune; A. J. Lowen stein, of the St. Louis Star; Herman Riddock, of the New York Staats-Zel tung, and A. A. McCormick, of the Chi cago Times-Herald. This special standing committee held a meeting in Chicago last November, Joint ly with the active committee of the In ternational Typographical union. At that meeting an agreement was formu lated which will require that all labor disputes in the office of a member of the Publishers' association shall be submitted to arbitration. The agree ment provides for local boards of arbitra tion from which appeal may be taken to- a national board of arbitration. It is provided, however, that the national board shall not take evidence except by a vote of a majority of the board. Rec ords and briefs are to be submitted, with either an agreed statement of facts or a properly certified transcript of the record. Pending the decision of ap peals works is to be resumed and the award of the national board may cover the entire period from the time the is sues were raised. The national boa-d is to be composed of the president of the International Typographical union and the commissioner of the American News paper Publishers' association, who, in case of failure to agree in any dispute shall name a third member of the board. Expenses are to be borne equally by the two organizations. Following are two sections from the agreement: TO ENFORCE ARBITRATION.' "Sec. 11. In the event of either party to the dispute refusing to accept and comply with the decision of the national board of arbitration, sail aid and support to tho firm or employer or local union refusing acceptance and compliance shall be withdrawn by both parties to this agreement. The acts of such employers, or firm, or local union shall be publicly disavowed and the aggrieved party to this agreement shall be furnished by the other with an official document to that effect. "Sec. 12. The said national board of arbitration must act when its servi^s are desired by any party to a. dispute as above and shall proceed with a.ll possi ble dispatch in rendering such services." After Mr. Driscoll, the commissioner for the A. N. P. A., had presented his report, James M. Lynch, president of the I. T. 11.,I 1., was introduced and addressed the meeting. He said that so far as he knew all the local unions were In favor of the agreement which is now being voted on by them. If the agreement Is ratified by both organizations it will go into effect for one year. This is the first time the publishers' association has attempted to make such an arrjmgemient. It is hoped the agree ment may be broadened so as to cover all possible labor disputes in newspaper offices, but at present the press rooms are not included, as they are not within the jurisdiction of the International Ty pographical union. The association did not vQte on the agreement today. The meeting will con tinue through Friday, with a dinner Fri day night. WHIP FOR WIFE BEATERS. Bill Introduced in Illinois House of Representative.!. SPRINGFIELD, 111., Feb. 20.-In the house today Representative Gold Intro duced a bill which provides that any person who shall brutally assault and beat his wife shall, upon conviction thereof, be sentenced to be whipped not exceeding forty lashes, well laid on by the sheriff, with a rawhide whip, or be imprisoned in the county jail for a term not exceeding one year, or both, in the discretion of the court. , THE PURE *s-\l^ sr GRAIN CQFFEE Do you know that three-quarters ; of all the world's headachesare th© result of using tea and coffee ?

NATION EVIDENTLY HAD LARGE QUANTITIES OF THAT COMMODITY CALLED HIM "YOTTR DISHONOR" Ca»e/ of Mrs. Nation and Her Fellow Female^Rjaldet* < on tinned to the April Term o« Wichita District Court. TOPEKA, Kan., Feb. 20.-Judge Hazen, of the district court, continued the case of Mrs. Carrie Nation, charged with smashing Murphy's joint, until the April term of court. The cases against Eva Harding, Mrs. Rose Crist, Miss Madeline Southard, Mrs. c. C. Chadwlck and C. R. McDowell were also continued. Mrs. Nation enlivened the proceedings in her characteristic way, displaying more strongly than ever the fact that the dignity hedging around the judicial bench has no more terrors for her than the commonest "joint." Mrs. Nation arose several times to ad dress the court, each time calling the judge "your dishonor." When asked if site were ready for trial, Mrs. Nation, who acts as her own attorney, said: "Your dishonor, I am Incapable of try- Ing my case this afternoon, as I have been poisoned by cigarette smoke in the county jail. I want to see how the other cases are tried any way." Judge Hazen looked at "the "joint smasher" in a hopeless sort of way, and then recognized Capt. J. G. Watters, one of the attorneys for the defense. Capt. Watters said:' 'T tried to find out yesterday which of these cases were to come up, a'ld I cculd not. I find that none of these cases have been placed upon the trial docket. There is no necessity for this swift ven geance. JThis is a fair demand that the case be" conTThued. The ordinary placid procedure of court would be advancsd by the giving of proper time." STARK CASE MONDAY. "It is the province of the court to see that all have a fair trial," said Judge Hazen. "It is not proper to railroad cases through. I see that If the cases go over until the next term of" court it will be difficult to get a Jury. It will be bet ter to settle the point- of law. I shall call the case of Stark on Monday morn ing. Ktark assisted in the raid on Sun day. Mr. Stark's lawyers requested that his clients case also go over for tins term. "I would prefer to try a man on this charge, rather than a woman," said Judge Hazen. "You may call a special venire if you wish and I think it will be necessary. I expect to try only this one case." Then Mrs. Nation said: "Your dishonor, please, I think it would be better to defer the decision as long as possible." "No, I think it will be better to settle it at once and let the people know what the- law is," said Judge- Hazen. "We know the law," said Mrs. Na tion. "It seems that some do not," replied Judge Hazen. ' Some judges do not know the law," retorted Mrs. Nation. Miss Madeline Southard and Mrs. Crist who have been with Mrs. Nation In tho> county Jail, gave bonds for $500 each and were released. One of the signers of the bonds was Edward Wilder, treas urer of the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fo railroad. Mrs. Nation and the others were re turned to jail. The indication* ate that there will be a bitter legal battle over the trials. The attorneys for the de fendants will insist that they be grant ed a change of venue on account of the alleged prejudice of Judge Hazen. one ran is in SATISFACTORY INDBBSTAXDISG REACHED REGARDING PUKISH HEEWT OF GUIL.TY CHINESE ENVOYS MAKE CONCESSIONS . -i ■ ■ .- : Compromise HafTßeon Accepted by the Chines* Court, and De mand!) of Power* Will Be^;.-. ; Complied With.

WALDERSBE'S BLUFF. It was learned by a representative of the /flssociated Press that the British government tonight is without any fur ther official explanation of Field Marshal Count yon Waldersee's action in planning 1 an extensive expedition in China. The government expects to receive tomorrow advices from Berlin officially setting forth the motive for the recent orders issued by the co-mm-a.nder-in-c.hief of the international forces in China. In fact, such explanation has been asked for in order that the cabinet at Friday's meet ing may have some satisfactory basis for its deliberations on the Chinese ques- tion. However, It is pretty well unoffi cially understood 4n Downing street that Yon Waldersee's laction- was purely due to a desire to bluff the Chienese. • The action of the British members :of parlia ment and papers,-' especially ; the - London Times, In calling it i&. bluff causes the greatest ■ chagrin 'and has given rise to the feeling that it :is impossible to meet Chinese finesse with' similar weapons. - "The concert of powers," said-. an .offi cial to the representative :' of the Associ ated Press, "is so unwieldy and is com posed o so many different : sec-; tions . and subsections that diplomacy; Is out of the question.

RAILWAYS BADLY \]\ TIED IP TWENTY-FOOT SNOW DBIFTS Vicinity of Corry, Pa., Reports Half • a. D»<icn Feet of Snow ■;:-;on the Country" RoAfls. . '■. ■;. CORRY, Pa., Feb. 20.—1n the history of this region no storm ever before reached the fury of today's blizzard. With half a dozen feet of snow on country roads and outlying city districts, Hatch street buried under twelve feet of snow, Corry caught about the worst part of the storm. A heavy fall of snow accom panied by a fierce wind of great velocity set in last evening and has continued with unabated vigor. It is still raging tonight. The railways recognized the fact that they had no ordinary storm to contend with and made hurried prepara tions to fight the elements. The West ern New York & Pennsylvania railway's accommodation train, due here at 8:45 a. m., was stalled in a drift higher than the engine's stack, while rushing down the summit, a huge grade south of this city. It was dug out with difficulty and again started on its precarious journey toward Buffalo. It probably will not get through tonight. This road is operating its train with three engines and has three plows at work on ninety miles of track. The worst drifts are at Summer dale, wHere they reach a height of twen ty feet in spots. On the Philadelphia & Krie a snow plow Jumped the track at Jackson's while endeavoring to force its way through a big drift. Traffic was de layed several hours. For the first time in many years this road has been com liiWieo: lo use snow plows. The Erie is also compelled to operate hastily Im provised snow plows, something unheard of on the main line west of Salamanca. The Lake Shore and the Nickel Plate are running their trains, but many hours vf->ind time. Farmers cannot send a horse through the snow and are forced to walk miles for life's necessities. There is undoubtedly much suffering among them. ■I 181!? ill MILWAIKEBS TREASURY HAS lIKB\ SYSTEMATICALLY LOOT ED FOR YEARS FORGED CITY CERTIFICATES Amount , Secured by • the Thieve* ."

MTLWAUKKE, Wis., Feb. 20.—The Sentinel tomorrow will say: Evidence has been brought to light which shows that the city of Milwaukee has systematically been defrauded for years. How much the city treasury has suffered is not known exactly, but an investigation which has been conducted for the past two days by City Treasurer Billow shows that the city has been de frauded out of a sum which is estimated anywhere from $20,000 to $100,000, and it may even be greater. The manner hi which those implicated have operated was either to raise the amounts of city certificates given to con tractors for work done, or to issue fraud ulent certificates, sometime? in the name of living contractors, sometimes in the names of wren who have been dead for years. The names of members of the board of puV-lic works and the city comp troller were forged to these certificates The discovery was made through an ac cident. A representative of one of the trust companies which had been loaning money on city certificates, came into the city treasurer's office with some orders. They fell into Treasurer Uillow's hands and he immediately discovered they were not genuine. FOR CRIME LAST SEPTEMBER. Fostorla, 0.. Sporting- Man Arrested on Cliurge of Murder. FOSTORIA, O, Feb. 20.—Marsh Lind say, a sporting man of this city, was arrested today, charged with complicity in the murder of W. C. Johnson, a wealthy celery raiser, the crime having been committed at the victim's home, at Carey last September. Johnson was beaten to death for repeated refusals to divulge where his money was hidden. Four men were engaged in the crime.

Not Yet Sure or Hav ing His Trial In n Court of L:nv. TOPEKA, Kan., Feb. 20.—The vigilanc*" of offlcers was all that saved "Slick" Slater from lynching by an infuriated mob tonight. He will jet be lynched if he can be found. Slater assaulted seventeen-year-old Lottie Gerberick Monday evening, and was captured by Topeka officers the next day in Carbon dale, twenty miles from here. The of flcers kept the fact of the capture quiet and placed Slater in the county jail here. This afternoon it became known that he was here and immediately the men at the Santa Fe shops, where the girls father, George Gerberick, is employed, decided that he should be lynched. By 6 o'clock there was an angry mob of a thousand men around the county jail, demanding that the prisoner be deliv ered to them. SLEDGE HAMMER BRIGADE. A brigade of sturdy Santa Fe boiler makers, armed with heavy sledge ham mers, stood ready to make short work of the jail in case the demands were not granted. Sheriff Cook told the crowd that the prisoner had been removed and offered to let a committee search the jail. Ten men, headed by Gerberick, made a thorough search. ' Slater could not be found and the men so reported. This failed to satisfy the mob. and twice they started to break in the jail doors. It developed that early in the afternoon the sheriff, in anticipation of trouble, or dered a deputy to get Slater out of town. The deputy drove to Hoyt with Slater and entered a north bound Rock Island train with him. It is thought here tonight the man is now in jail in Atchison. The Santa Fe shop men are calmly determined to lynch Slater when he is brought back here for trial, and to this end have appointed a large vig ilance committee to be constantly on the lookout for him. The Santa Fe shop men lynched John Olephant here twelvtr years ago for assault. Slater is a white man twenty-seven years of age. CAILED ON JI'KINIEY. While Hon*e Reception to Dangfli ters of Ainerleaii Revolution. WASHINGTON, Feb. 20.—The national society of the Daughters of the American Revolution today convened with tlio in tention of completing the reading of all reports to clear the way for the event Oi the congress, the election of officers to morrow. After the preliminary opentng exercises, a stir was created when Mrs. Nesbeth, of Massachusetts, presented a resolution to the effect that the state ments recently circulated, attacking the board of officers of the D. A. R. being untrue, libelous and reflecting upon the honor of the organization, they should receive the disapproval of the society. A member requested that the press be re strained from mentioning the resolution in the proceedings of the congress, but this amendment was not put before the house. The resolution was laid upon tne table. Mrs. DanieJ Manning presented her re port as chairman of the committee on the continental hall. The report showed that from Feb. 10, 1900, to Feb. 10, 1901, there has been re ceived toward the fund $10,790. The fund now amounts to $62,823. Continuing, the report says: "Again, and for the last time, I urge you to do your part toward this memorial of the men who counted no sacrifice too great for accomplishing our independence. Let us put up *a building to which all people can point with pride. It should be one of the finest halls in the country, for it will represent 350,000 of the best women in Ameiica." Mrs. Manning appealed to the members of the congress to contribute $2 each. 1' this is done, she said, $70,000 will be raised. Contributions to a considerable amount were received for the continental hall. Mrs. Donald McLean urged the hullamg of a permanent memorial hall. She of fered a resolution recommending that a committee be appointed to discover the minimum cost for which a site can be secured and report the result of its find ings on the last day of tho congress. Mrs. McLean's resolution, after a h.ated debate, was adopted. Mrs. J. M. Hoiton, of Buffalo, extended to the congress an invitation to visit the Pan-American exposition. President and Mrs. McKinley tendered a reception this afternoon to the society of the Children of the American Revolution, which was immediately followed by a reception to the delegates to the congress of the Daughters of the American Revo lution.

WOMEN WHO SUFFER. Thousands Everywhere Who Endure Terrible Torture. Death Often Welcomed as a Means of Relief. A Little Knowledge Wonld Often Avert Much Agony* "Women are the sufferers of the human race. Their delicate oiganism is the cause ol frequent and severe pain. There is no reason why women should lca<7 a life of such perpetual misery. God did not intend that this should he the case. It is enough that women should suffer in giving hirth to children. It is too much to ask her to suffer at other times, yet many women experience each month tortures that are second only to the pains of child birth. "What Is the cause of this t It nearly always can be found in a disregard of Na ture's laws, improper food, insufficient ex ercise or carelessness in other matters of hygiene, all of which go to weaken those organs in women that are the source of such pain and misery, misery not only to the Woman herself, but to her entire family. What can be worse than to be always looking ahead to a time when several days of helplessness will ensue ? It is impossible to make plans for the future, especially in cases where the monthly periods are irregu lar. There is no knowing when a woman will bo able to attend to her every-day duties, or will ba prostrated flat on her back, and the worst part of this trouble is that such irregularity and pain goes hand in hand. "Women who suffer and are irregular in their periods experience much greater hard ships in child bearing. They are in much greater danger during child birth. TVorse lhan anything else, the progeny of such women are sickly, delicate, and undersized. Such children start life at a disadvantage. They are the kind that grow into sickly, nervous, and peevish men and women. Why not eliminate all this suffering from trour life ? You can do it.

Now that I have taken a few bottles of it, I feel well, and I shall always bless Dr. Greene for having put such a good medicine on the market. I can never say enough in favor of it. Before taking it I Buffered with heart trouble, female weak ness, and was so nervous that I could not hear to have anyone cross the floor. I had darting pains all over me. Once I had St. Vitus' dance. My menstruations stopped entirely. In fact, I wont through every thing that flesh is heir to and lived. O.n anyone wonder that I feel so thankful for my health, for I am but 29 years of age, and life is as sweet to me as to others, and I had made up my mind that I might as well die as to live in such pain. Everyone in my neighborhood fthinks I was raised from the dead, as they know what it has done for me. I will bo glad to explain t-Q any lady who wishc3 to know moro of what Dr. Greene's medicine did forme, if she will Bend me a stamp."
