BOSTON.Mass., Nov. B.—The financial troubles existing for some time be tween the Mascagni Opera company and its managers reached a climax to night when Mascagni, the composer leader, was arrested upon a civil suit for alleged failure to fulfill his v :on tract, brought by Mittenthal Bros., who, with Samuel Kronberg, were his original managers. Mr. Kronberg washed his hands of the whole affair, as he asserted, several days ago and left for New York. As soon as the writ was served upon Mascagni at his hotel, his counsel peti tioned Judge Sheldon, of the superior court, for an immediate hearing of the case, to which he claimed his client was entitled under the statutes. The justice refused to proceed with the hearing, saying that it should be held in open court, and made the writ re turnable in the first equity session of the superior court on Monday next. Bail in the case, which had at first been fixed at $12,000, was reduced to $10,000, and this was furnished late to night by Richard Hurd, Samuel Kron berg and Louis Kronberg.

SULTAN'S REAL GOOD HE OF BACOLOD DISCLAIMS IN TENTION TO MAKE WAR UPON AMERICANS BUT HE IS SLY AND WILL BE WATCHED Expedition to Bacolod Will Probably Be Abandoned—Gen. Hughes Denies a Statement That the Eighteenth Regulars Laid a Large Strip of Ter ritory in Ashes. MANILA, Nov. B.—The sultan of Bacolod has sent a letter to Capt. Pershing, commanding the American troops at Camp Vicars, island of Min danao, disclaiming any intention to make war on Americans. He denies molesting Americans and says he is not in possession of stolen American property. Brig. Gen. Sumner, com mander of the department of Minda nao, has been preparing to send a column to Bacolod, but the expedition will probably be abandoned, although the military will watch the sultan and determine if his friendly assur ances are genuine. It is expected that the completion of the Iligan road and the occupation of the north shore of the lake will finally show the attitude of the Moros. They continue to show as great friendliness as possible. The United States commission has repealed the Spa/iish law which im posed an income tax on salaries.

Hughes, in reply to charges contained in a letter written by Henry Loomis Nelson, in a Boston newspaper, Aug. 25, 1902, and which letter is embraced in a pamphlet signed by Charles Francis Adams, Carl Schurz, Edward Barrett Smith and Herbert Wash, committee, under the title of "Marked Severities, Secretary Root's Record in the Philippines War fare." Gen. Hughes quotes the follow ing extract from the letter: "The Eighteenth regulars marched from Iloilo, In the south, to Caplz, in the north of Panay, under orders to burn every town from which they were attacked. The result was they left a strip of land sixty miles wide, from one end of the island to the other, over which the traditional crow could not have flown without provisions. That is what burning means and no more. It is not done for the fun of the thing, but out of stern necessity." Gen. Hughes, who commanded in Panay at the time, says the burning of lolilo was shown by the official records of the insurgents' council to have been the work of the insurgents. He says the troops, by "some work, some fight ing and much- exposure to fire, were able to wrench a portion of Iloilo from the flames." After reviewing the work of the Eighteenth infantry in the province of Panay, Gen. Hughes says: "It has thus been shown that the Eighteenth regulars had no order to burn all towns from which they were attacked, and that they did not leave 'a strip of land sixty miles wide,' etc., but, as a matter of fact, they did leave the country uninjured, the town and villages intact, the roads improved, bridges rebuilt and the 500,000 natives of the section covered were left in the full enjoyment of their property and rights." They Are Out of Reach. An investigation that has been made by the war department into the allega tion by the anti-imperialistic commit tee, delivered at the Lake George con ference, to the effect that Father Au gustine, a Catholic priest, was killed by the water cure in the Philippines, has apparently confirmed the main fact that the man died as the result of the administration of the cure, but it also has been found that the persons who administered the cure to secure insurgent funds of which he was the custodian were volunteers from Ver mont, and are now beyond the reach of military justice, having been mus tered out of the service.

FORMATION OF MINNIE HAVESTING COMPANY Output to Be Increased —The Machines Are Manufactured in St. Paul. Special to The Globe. NEW YORK, Nov. B.—A man identi fied with the American Grass Twine company explains the formation of the Minnie Harvester company as follows: "When the American Grass Twine company was formed it took over the Walter A. Wood harvester plant at St. Paul, which covers upward of twenty-eight acres. This plant turns out the Minnie harvester, using the binder twine manufactured by the Grass Twine company. It is intended to enlarge the works and increase the output. The harvester combination formed last summer took in practically al^ the leading manufacturers of har vesters with the exception of our plant, and we estimate that on the basis' on which those plants were absorbed ours is worth fully $6,000,000. We have made this the basis of capitalization of the Minnie company, all of whose stojk is owned by the Grass Twine company. "The .new company will enter into active competition with the Interna tional company and some of the stock njay later be sold to the public. If at any time there should be a plan to merge the property in the Interna tional company it could be more easily done when the plant is in the hands of a separate company than being merely a part of the Grass Twine com pany." .

I understand several other gentlemen who are to be candi dates for that honor have been making an active canvass during the present campaign. On starting to California I was asked to make speeches in the 1 Middle Western states.

BEARS HARMLESS WHEN IN WILD STATE Superintendent of Yellowstone Park Recommends the Introduction of European Game Birds. WASHINGTON, D. C, Nov. B.—The annual report of the acting superin tendent of the Yellowstone Natonal Park predicts that there will be a con siderable increase in every species of large game throughout the reservation. It says the bears are harmless while left alone and kept in a perfectly wild state, but when fed and petted they lose all fear of human beings, cause damage to property and are dangerous to tourists who trifle with them. It is suggested that the black cock and capercailzie, game birds of North ern Europe, be introduced into the park. Only two forest fires of any size occurred during the year and neither caused great damage. *t is recommended that Fort Yellowstone be enlarged to a four-troop or squadron post and be garrisoned by the troops of two different regiments. The total of all visitors to the park during the season was 13,433. INFANT TRAVELS AS BAGGAGE Dressed in Expensive Clothing and Found in a Telescope Bag Among Trunks. CHICAGO, Nov.

FANATICS CORALLED Canadian Mounted Police Put an End to the Douk- hobor Pilgrimage ENFORCED HOME GOING Frenzied Russians Are Entrained Only With the Utmost Dif ficulty HUNDREDS OF CITIZENS ASSIST THE OFFICERS Doukhobors Are Loaded in Cars Like Unruly Cattle for Transportation to Vorkton, Whence They Will Bo Driven to Their Northern Villages- Twenty Who Escape Will Probably Freeze. Special to The Globe. WINNIPEG, Man., Nov. B.—The lat est dispatch from Minnedosa reads as follows: After one of the most exciting inci dents in the history of the Northwest, handling of the Doukhobors, the fa natics have been forcibly entrained, loaded in cars like unruly cattle, and are now guarded by a large detach ment of mounted police, who are kepV busy preventing the guarded Russians from throwing themselves through the car windows. A military special of ten coaches will leave here with the army at 10 p. m. and unload it early tomorrow at Yorkton, whence mount ed police will drive the Doukhobors to their northern villages, ending perhaps the most remarkable experience in Canadian history. The Doukhobors arrived here last night en route to Winnipeg. Thla morning they attempted to resume their journey with the mercury stand ing 10 below. Government officials held them with difficulty by the road until the military special train arrived this evening at 4:30 with 500 mounted po lice. The fanatics were addressed by the officials and told they would Have to go home. They cried, "No, we go to seek Jesus." Instructs Followers to Resist. Zeibroff, the leader, harangued his followers, instructing them to resist. Two hundred farmers who had gath ered to see them and 500 other citizens surrounded them. Fifty of the fanat ics go out and made a rush on the road east. Surrounded by a crowd, they resisted desperately and the po lice grappled with the leaders and car ried them bodily to the cars. Zeibroff,, the chief fanatic, had to be taken 500 yards from the rink to the cars in a wagon, and when the rink vomited forth the fanatics an indescribable scene followed. • Farmers, townspeople and police threw themselves, on the Doukliobors and dragged or carried them to tho station. The latter encircled one an other with their arms and seemed as though linked together by bands of steel, while they struggled to give voice to their weird chant. Some strug gled so hard that the clothing was torn off their backs. Like a Hundred Football Games. For over an hour the ground to the station was filled with seething crowds and the excitement great, as though a hundred fierce football scrimmages were going on at one time. The Douk hobors refused to strike, but strug gled blindly for freedom. Their cap tors, with blood warmed by the strange struggle, shouted and cursed as the bloodless battle became more exciting, and when the cars were reached anoth er struggle ensued. Stalwart police handed up the kicking Russians, who were thrust into the dark, cold coaches like cattle, and threw themselves against the windows and doors to es cape. The confusion that followed was in describable. During the enforced en training of the men a small blizzard sprang up and the weather became intensely cold. All day the Doukho bors have been living on wheat and raw oatmeal. Tonight small quan tities of bread were thrown in to them. Many of them are wrecks and all pro test that they will leave Yorkton for their homes when the train reaches there. Twenty May Die of Freezing. Only about twenty out of the 500 escaped en training and they are now on the prairie in a temperature that means death to them. The action to night was taken on instructions from the federal government, which said the pilgrims must be sent home, even if they had to be carried. At the time of writing the Doukhoboers are locked in the coaches struggling vainly for freedom so to look for the Messiah. They sing and pray inces santly, asking divine assistance to turn the hearts of their captors and re lease them. Zeibroff exhorted them tonight to re sist ajjain at Yorkton, and serious trouble is feared before-the military special reached that point, as the Rus sians seem clearly bereft of all rea son. All are bruised and mad from their struggle, and one had a leg broken. Their fanaticism is as strong as ever. DEATH OF AN ACTOR THAT USED TO PLAY IN ST.
