SATURDAY, JULY 26, 1902. Those who are prophesying that the Boers will yet rise against the British in South Africa -forget two essential facts, first, that the Boers are a truth ful and honorable race, and, second, that the lesson that England has had will probably keep her officials from putting outrages on the race in the future. WANTED—A MAYOR. The appearance in Chicago within the past day or two of Mayor Ames, of Minneapolis, in .the character of Dr. Ames, superintendent of a health re sort in Indiana, is the latest circum stance to lend emphasis to the duty which the people of Minneapolis owe to themselves to get rid of their incubus executive. After the transaction of his business with his brother, Dr. Ames appears to have returned to his duties as superintendent cf the Indiana re sort. Where his brother hied himself to does not appear to De publicly known, but it is conceded that he did not return to the city of Minneapolis, the only place where he is really wanted. The city attorney of Minneapolis has expressed the opinicn that the absence of Mayor Ames from the city invests a given official with the functions of municipal executive. The ordinar; charter provision in this regard is that in case of the absence or disability of the mayor his duties are discharged by some other official. No doubt a corresponding rule applies in the case of Minneapolis. The public interest is not a. to who the official is upon whom devolves the executive functions in the absence of the mayor. That interest is confined to the circumstance that there is such an official. It ought to be a subject of much con-"* cern to the officials of Minneapolis, whether the absence of Mayor Ames does not afford to some official or other the right to discharge all his duties as mayor and whether it is not an imper- ! ative and urgent obligation that those functions be discharged by somebody else without limitation or qualification. It ig also a matter which those officials should take into serious consideration, whether Ames has not by his conduct .laid the basis for the successful pros ecution of proceedings to oust him from his present office. He certainly cannot fulfill the functions of superin tendent of an Institution in another^ .state requiring; his continued attend ance there, without having cast serious doubt upon his right to hold his posi tion as mayor. - But whether Ames can be driven from the high office which he so gross ly abuses, or whether he can be forced either to return and discharge the du ties of that office •or else surrender their discharge to some other official, there is no doubt whatever^ that the people of Minneapolis, through their city officials, ought to take some ' im mediate steps ;< to settle the status of Ames with reference to the government of that city. 7.7 7 There may be, and there doubtless is, some question whether Ames, being head of the ypolice department only by virtue- of the office of mayor, any other official, not de facto and de jure mayor, can exercise the functions of the head of that department. ,If there is no such question then the acting mayor of Minneapolis ought forthwith to proceed to clean out the entire dis reputable gang which control the po lice department of that city, and to put an end to the infamous state of affairs which is revealed in its admin istration. This ought to be done wheth er or not Ames has disqualified him self to act as mayor. It may be that he covets the salary of the office and that in his present discredited condi tion he has no further political use to which to prostitute it. In that event it may well be a matter. of indifference to all decent citizens whether he con tinues to hold the office, if only its du ties can be legally discharged by some other official under the peculiar cir cumstances which surround the situa tion. It was undoubtedly a just and true verdict which that Brooklyn coroner's jury rendered in the case of the mur dered man, Latimer; that he came to his death by violence. WHY APPOINT M'LAURIN? On what "principle is it that Presi dent Roosevelt has tendered to one of the South Carolina senators the im portant office of judge of the court of claims? > Thus far President Roosevelt has oc cupied a distinctively partisan position in all his appointments to office. More than that, it is equally plain that po litical considerations affecting himself have mainly controlled him in his ap pointments. Both of the South Caro lina senators are Democrats. Why should McLaurin be chosen as an ob ject of executive favor, more than any other Democratic senator to whom such an appointment could be regarded as acceptable? -The answer to this question involves either of two conclu sions: McLaurin has been unfaithful to his obligations as a Democratic sen ator from a Democratic state, or else President Roosevelt is willing to pro mote his own political^ fortunes by utilizing a judgeship of the court of claims to secure the favor of that class of political society which would be ex pected to sustain the attitude assumed by McLaurin toward the policies of both Roosevelt's and McKinley's ad ministration. In any event, the answer to the inquiry must be one which re flects no credit whatever upon any of the persons or influences associated with it. Senator McLaurin has chosen to de cline the office. What the motives of his declination are has to do entirely with Senator McLaurin himself. It is certainly to his credit that in declining the appointment he has indicated his unwillingness to go to the rear while under fire. More than one man in his situation before has been shelved by the favor of the opposite party, but the record of such transactions - does not establish that any one derived any par ticular benefit from them. Senator McLaurin is entitled to his opinions. If he thinks he can hold to them and retain. his membership in the Democratic party he is right in mak ing the attempt. There is to be said for him at least this: That his chief enemy, his associate in the senate, Till man, is about the last man that would be regarded as qualified, either by his party political antecedents or other wise, to decree McLaurin or anybody else unfitted for membership in the Democratic party. If Senator McLaurin decides ulti mately to stay in politics in his state in the effort to vindicate the rightful ness of his position,- the Democrats of the country will watch the outcome of his conflict with Tillmanism with un doubted interest. When Senator Bailey appears on the stump in Indiana this fall it is a safe bet that Senator Beveridge will be in some adjoining state; and if the lat ter should campaign in Texas the Lone Star tribune would no doubt be help ing the Democratic cause in other sec-, tions. Thus the fiction of senatorial courtesy would be demonstrated. The movement of Democratic har mony is assuming quite vigorous pro portions. Any Democrat not disposed to take the harmony meetings too seri ously should devote himself a little to reading the comments of the imperial ist press on the general subject. It required some nerve for a mayor to direct that official papers should continue to be forwarded four or five hundred miles for his signature. But, then, the only remaining qualification of Ames for his present position is plainly that of nerve. Considering the splendid facilities for bathing which are furnished through Harriet island any lad who is fool enough to take the risks of bathing elsewhere in the river ought to be taught wisdom by an hour or two in the lockup. 7 ■■'-■ - 7 ■•■: Unless all the literature on the sub ject of the British heireapparent is misleading, the great national afflic tion, if King Edward should pass away, would not be his death, but his son's succession to the throne. The press in informed that the presi dent's yacht has run into a deep fog. If it had run into anything more sub stantial, special dispatches would be sent over the executive private wire to all ends of the earth. 7,.

The university football" p>yers are all thinking of taking out accident policies hereafter before going into the game. They evidently believe that the accident insurance people are philan thropists. When the services of Tarns Bixby are called for in the character of party harmonizer, the situation must be pret ty bad among those who constitute the tail to Van Sant's political kite. If Mayor Ames " can't be mayor of Minneapolis and live in Indiana, can his brother be chief of police and lite in Mexico or some other country from which he can't be extradited?

There will be a matinee performance of "Blue Jeans" the Grand Opera house this afternoon : at 1 2:30 and it promises to be a record breaker in point of attendance.' Tonight at 8:15 will mark the final production of "Blue Jeans" In this city by the Frawley company and tomorrow night it will enter upon the last week of its stay at this " playhouse, ' presenting William Gilette's great war drama, "Secret Ser vice," which is said to be, without question, one of. the best plays In the company's repertoire. Miss Van Buren _will be seen as Edith Varney and Frank Mathieu will appear as Capt. Thorne, the role assumed in the original production by Mr. Gillette. Following the Frawley company the George Fawcett Stock company will inaugurate a three-week stay at this playhouse, presenting for __ the 7 first week, of their engagement Augustus Thomas' splendid play, "In Missouri." SOUTHERN POLITICS DISCUSSED BY HOKE SMITH Protecion of Government Fromlgnor- ance and Incompetence Necessary. NEW YORK, July Former Sec retary of the Interior Hoke Smith; of Georgia, who has been in this city, is thus quoted: "The question of principal interest with regard to the political attitude of the South is not whether it will adhere to the Democratic party, but what part it will take in the Democratic -Conven tions. Will it stand by the departure of 1896 at -Chicago, which was,reiterat ed at Kansas City in 1900, or will it go back to the Democracy of Jefferson and Jackson, of Seymour and Tilden? It seems almost impossible for Eastern business men and even Western; Demo crats to understand the situation in the South. Of first importance with us is local government. Our sufferings from 1868 to 1880 taught lessons which will make it impossible for many years to come for the white vote to divide. "It is not so much a matter of race prejudice. It is a matter of protecting our state, county and municipal gov ernment from ignorance and incompe tence. The large majority of the white voters of the South are really conserv ative; their fear of bad local govern ment causes them frequently to make no fight on a national question lest it might jeopardize that which with them is essential—good local govern ment. The Democrats of the East may confidently rely upon cordial co-opera tion in 1904 from those of the South." MEDALS FOR BRAVE * MEN OF THE NAVY List Being Selected by the Naval Board on Awards. WASHINGTON, D. C, July 25.— Now that the list of officers and men of the navy who are to -receive: the West Indian campaign medals and bars has been completed, the naval board on awards is busy, with the meritorious service medals which are intended to go to those officers who rendered particularly telling | services in the West Indian campaign. So far only four persons have been decided upon for . the meritorious ser vice medals. These are Lieut. R. P. Hobson, for his well known feat with the Merrimac; Lieutenants Ward and Buck, for their perilous mission into Spain, and Lieut. .Victor Blue, for his famous work in connection with the location of the Spanish fleet in Santi ago harbor. 7 . ._-*- It is understood thajt meritous ser vice medals also are intended for the American officers and men who ren dered exceptional service in the rescue of the drowing officers and men of the defeated Spanish fleet at Santiago. The reports of the rescue showed that the ~ Spaniards themselves shouted warnings to the rescuers not to ap proach for fear of exploding maga zines, but the Americans persisted in their efforts to save., In the face of im minent destruction. ALBANY VISITED BY A FATAL CONFLAGRATION Fireman Dead and Others Injured and Heavy Pecuniary Loss. ALBANY, N. V., July 25.—One fire man dead, one believed 7to be dying and a number seriously injured, in ad dition to a monetary loss variously es timated at from half to three quarters of a million dollars, is the result of a fire which * occurred in the heart of the business district early this morn ing.

Crop conditions, particularly as to corn and cotton,* have further improved, and the confidence in fall trade shows no diminution, but rather an increase. The best advices" come, as heretofore, from the North west and Southwest. Weather condi tions in the East have been depressing to trade In seasonable * goods and fall trade in dry goods promises to be late.' A further improvement is," however, noticed in shoes and leather and wool is again higher in price, despite manu facturers holding back buying. Among the Industries iron and steel are easily first in activity and relief from the so-called pig iron famine is sought in freer importations. The fruit season is now in full swing and sugar consumption is at its full and promises to be very heavy. Anthracite coal, stove sizes, has reached the pinnule. Produce is still high, despite flatter ing crop prospects, oats have suffered the predicted squeeze and reached the highest price of a generation, range cattle and j Texas hides have surpassed all records and fine tobaccos have also reached best ;on record quotations. On the other hand, the cereals, cotton and hog products, reflecting the improved crop reports are lower. Coffee, though galvanized by speculation, drags pain fully, owing to large stocks and good crop conditions. It is noted by West ern harware men that there will be no dull season this year. Railroad earn ings show gains of over 5 per cent so far for July, and bank clearings have begun to show gains earlier predicted over last year's totals, reduced as the: were bys hot weather and drought ef fects onr speculation. Crop reports to Bradstreet's are especially good from the Southwest, where corn and cotton have. been 7 favored by 7 good growing weather. 77 '■'■ -;., :-r. ■'.;. Iron and Steel Strong. -. With pig iron consumers clamorous for supplies, the balance of this year's production already booked and free buying for the first half of next year at only $1 per ton less than at current rates and foreign iron imports large, the iron and steel trade in the cruder forms possesses exceptional elements of strength. Buyers of structural- iron are engaging far ahead, steel rail or ders are large, and bar and sheet sales are large, though not as heavy as last week. In hardware the activity is not able and the changeJo seasons appars to bring not let up in the demand. Tin and copper have weakened under freer offerings. Wool is, not especially active, but is held higher at leading Eastern centers. Some improvement *- is noted among New York dry goods jobbers, but the feeling grows that the season will be rather later than usual. Cotton gods are practically unchanged in price.

BATTLESHIPS LOUISIANA AND CONNECTICUT Requirements for Their Building Are Named by the Navy Department, WASHINGTON, D. C, July 25.— circulars for the two new battleships, the Connecticut and Louisiana, were issued by the navy department today. Plans will be ready Aug. 1, when the advertisement for bids for the Louisi ana will be published. The Connecti cut will be built in the New York navy, yard. The bids will be opened about Oct, 1. The maximum time for con struction of the Louisiana is forty-two months. For any delay beyond - the contract time the builders are to for feit $300 per day for the first month and $600 a day thereafter. In considering the bids preference will be given to the bidder who offers to construct the ship in the shortest -time. The speed of the . ship is to be eighteen knots. If it falls below that limit $50,000 is to be deducted from the contract price for each quarter knot down to seventeen 7 knots : and $100,000 for each quarter knot below the latter figure down, to sixteen and one-half knots. If the ship fails to make' sixteen and one-half knots the secretary of the navy can reject her in his discretion. " In a" general way it can be said that the Louisiana and the Connecticut will be.of> the same type as the battleships Georgia and New Jersey. They will measure 450 feet on the load line and will have an extreme width of 76 feet and 10 inches. The mean draught will be 24 feet 5 inches, and coaling capac ity 2,200 tons. The main batteries will consist of four 12 inch, 7 eight 8 inch and twelve 7 inch guns, with a sec ondary battery of twenty 3-inch rapid fire guns and some smaller semi-auto matic guns. The hull will be protected by a completed belt of 9-inch armor. The maximum 11-inch armor will ex tend 200 1 feet amidships forward and aft of which will be 9 -inch armor to protect the magazines and decreasing in thickness gradually to 4 inches at the stern. 7 - The casemate armor and bulkhead armor will be 6 inches. The armor is to be supplied by the government. The contractors are to furnish the steel for the protected deck, which is to extend from stem to stern, flat amidships and sloping at the sides. v INTERNATIONAL CRICKET MATCH Fine Game to Be Finished Today— Close of the Winnipeg Sum- - *" mer Fair.

The Canadians had the choice and went to bat, rolling up 217; Uncle Sam's representatives then went in and at close play had 85 for 5 wick ets, the teams ■playing:' twelve men a side. The Minnesota men on the team are Godwin, Ramsay, Napier and Rich ards. -. -- - ■. , The bowling of Godwin and Ramsey was beyond all praise. It. was a fairly easy wicket and the batsmen took full advantage. Ramsay batted exceeding ly well for his side, getting close to the twenties. The game starts again at 11 a. m., and the question is whether it can be played out or result in a draw. Richards kept the wickets splendidly. Napier fielded well and was unluckily out when well set with bat. ]| The Winnipeg summer fair is over and the Americans left for home on special trains at 6 p. m. The great free-for-all race announced was a farce. A dispute arose over the owner ship of Tom Ogden and Harold H, Owner of Harry O claiming both be longed to H. J. Mackenzie. Tom Ogden and the owner, Levi Dingman, were expelled for | all time to come from American trotting association tracks. Harold H was then withdrawn, leaving the field too small to start, and disap pointing the 22,000 people in attend ance.

"I found very soon after my arrival in Panay that every man's hand was against us; that every man.woman and child In the islands was an enemy, and in my best judgment they are today and always will be. Practically every presidente and other officials have been playing double. They organized and were the active members of secret so cieties, known as the Katipunan, etc., whose avowed objects were to advance the cause of'independencia' in any and all ways, and under this high-sound ing phrase they have made use of ev ery means forbidden to them by the laws of war. "These , men of peace have actually waged war by killing straggling Amer ican soldiers. They have made use of poisons in the drinks - sold to Amer ican soldiers. They have poisoned their arrows and the tips of their spears and bolos, together with the bamboo tips placed in the deadly traps that . abounded Jon the trails. They have hired assassins to kill those who were even suspected of being friendly to the Americans, and likewise have endeavored" to have our American of fleers assassinated. They openly stat ed, in the island of Bohol, that they would gladly sacrifice twenty natives for every American officer assassinat ed. They employed corps of assassins, who, under the name of Ducot, Mando ducot or Sandatahan, spread death and terror in their wake." . . Maj. Glenn then gives the details leading up to : the administration of the water cure jto the presidente, the facts of which were brought out in the senate Philippines investigation. He declares he "did no more than any other man with good sense would have done. I am convinced that my action resulted in hastening the termination of hostilities and directly resulted in saving^ many human lives, and directly injured no one."

NEW YORK CITY GOSSIP RAISE MONEY FOR COLER FOR*: GUBERNATORIAL CAMPAIGN Floral Chair Parade to Be Held on At lantic City Board Walk in August- New York Stricken by Pie Fa mint Owing to Bakers' Strike. t NEW YORK, July 25.—Although for. mer Comptroller Coler has said he is not a candidate for governor, campaign funds are being raised in his interest, Democrats in banks and trust com panies, who have not bothered much with politics since 1896, have been asked to subscribe to a campaign fund. A man whose brother is known as a banker the world over recently was asked for a contribution to help defeat Gov. Odell. This man is himself known as a financier, has interests in the Sub way company, and had a diplomatic post under President Cleveland. Other Democrats who have been out of tune with the party have heard the same story, and it ls said that more than $100,000 had been subscribed pro visionally in Greater New York by Democrats in corporations who are anxious to see Mr. Coler the candidate for governor. His friends also assert that Mr. Coler is the only man who can raise money in Wall street.

From the Battery to the Bronx, from east to west, there was gloom over Manhattan island one day this week, for the news went abroad that one ot the most sacred of American Institu tions was in danger of being crippled, if not destroyed. There was a pie strike in New York, and the great city was pieless. It was not until the luncheon hour was well begun the extent of the ca lamity was known, for the early com ers in the quick-lunch factories were able to eat their fill in careless happi ness. __ -» On the Stock Exchange there was a corner in pies that provoked scenes compared with which the terrible days of the Northern Pacific deal were tame and unimportant. Some of the more wealthy men sent their cashiers and other trusted officers over to Brooklyn and New Jersey to bring the suste nance without which they' felt they could not hope to carry on their busi ness, but for the rank and file of the city's workers there was no hope, no consolation, no pie. The people directly responsible for the tragedy were the bakers of the New York Pie Baking company, the concern which provides pie for the whole of Manhattan. On Saturday night they demanded a change in their hours, wishing to work from 7 a. m. to 6 p. m. instead of from 11 p. m. till 10 a. m. But the epicures in pie must be sup plied with none but the freshest of the fresh, and the demand of the workers was refused. Knowing their intention to strike, the company had men in readiness to fill their places as soon as the strike should be started; but the new hands lacked the skill of the old, and their output fell far short of the 15,000 which New York consumes dally. It-was said the difficulty had been overcome in a large measure, and only in the cocoanut and. custard variety would there still be a famine. A sym pathetic strike on the part of the em ployes of the Manhattan, Munson, Consumers of Brooklyn and New Eng land Pie companies had been feared, but it is expected now the ease with which the New York company filled the gaps In their ranks will discourage any such action. * Gives Lucid Explanation.
