Ten Republicans' voted with the Democra tic members for Adams. It was more in the nature of a party than a personal triumph, for both Pea body and McDonald are Republicans and Adams is a Democrat. Although the Republican majority on joint bal lot is 35, the membership being 66 Re publicans and 31 Democrats, it had been found impossible to gain for Pea body enough Republican votes to rein state him as governor for the remain der of the biennial term ending in Jan uary, 1907.

It is said that none of the diplomats has been able to have an Interview with Castro concerning dis puted international questions for some months.

It is said that the majority of Vene zuelans look upon the' possibility of foreign intervention either with indif ference or favorably, as the internal conditions are causing much unrest. Excessive taxation, heavy expendi tures, the political preferment of in capable men and the resulting chaotic business conditions are turning from Castro mucn of the best element in Venezuela.

Masqueray Will Design Catholic Structure for Selby Hill, the Com mittee Having Awarded Him the Contract for Plans—Building Will Be Typical of the Time and Will Be Built With the Idea of Obtaining the Best Hearing and Seeing Facilities St. Pauls magnificent Catholic ca thedral will be built under the plans of Emanuel L. Masqueray, the late chief of design of the Louisiana Purchase exposition. At a meeting of the cathedral com mittee held last night at the archie piscopal residence It was decided to accept Mr. Masqueray as the builder, and after careful discussion he was given practically carte blanc within a certain limit. As already reported In The Globe the general style of the building will be modern renaissance and the shape of the structure whi^h will adorn the crest of the Selby avenue hill will be along the lines of the cross. According to the ideas developed at the meeting last night the structure will be rather wide and short than long and narrow. And the Idea of im posing size will be subordinated to general convenience of the congrega tion in the matters of good acoustics and ability to see. The original Idea of the cathedral committee was for a building to cost not less than $1,000,000, and after Mr. Masqueray had been heard the amount to be expended was left more or less in doubt, but it Is practically certain that it will be in excess of that figure. The point was strongly made at the MGR.RiCHOTEXPIRES Historical Character Who Re- volted with Rlel Special to The Globe WINNIPEG, Man.. March I«.—One of the most Interesting characters In the history of the northwest, Mgr. Ri chot, died this evening at St. Norbert, a few miles south of this city. He had been a priest there since 1862, hav ing been sent out by the pope with the title of apostolic prothonotory, and was well known to everyone in the early days of the Red river. He took an active part in the Riel rebellion of 1870, being a member of the Rlel pro visional government, and was arrested in Ottawa that year on a charge of complicity in the murder of Thomas Scott, which set Canada aflame, but was released through the Influence of the pope. A few months ago Mgr. Richot's house was burned during the night. He was an invalid at the time and never quite recovered from the shock. His age was 80 year*. meeting that the cathedral should be distinctive in type. It was urged that St. Paul should have a building that in three or four centuries to come could be looked upon as almost epochal in its style. No hampering regulations were adopted last night and the committee left the architect free to do as he wo.uld within the general lines laid down for his limitations. One rather amusing feature devel oped during the meeting. The com mittee decided to give the undertak ing into the hands of Mr. Masqueroy early in. the session. After the motion had been put and carried the question suggested Itself as to the health of the architect. "Suppose you should die like Mr. Root, who was chief of design at the Columbian exposition in Chicago, and his successor, where would the ca thedral be?" "But I am not going to die, God will- Ing," replied the architect. "Well," asked the questioner, "how would the committee be armed against such a contingency?" Mr. Masqueray explained that his partner In New York was a very good business man and Intimated that the partner would see that the cathedral BURNS POSTOFFICE Young Postmaster Terrorizes a Key Stone Town PITTSBURG, March If.—John F.

"The cathedral will be built on the top of Selby hill.".said.Mr. Masqueray, "but really It is too early to say any thing specific about the plans. It will be my intention to build as fine a structure as" is within my power un der the specifications. It will be my hope to construct such a building as in the centuries to come will be looked upon as an indicative type of the time in which it was built.

Kuropatkln and the remnants of the army which was defeated by the Japanese on the Shakhe and Hun rivers and again around Mukden and ANCIENT FOES MEET Strange Reunion in the Illinois Capitol SPRINGFIELD, 111., March 16.—Two soldiers, one a private in a Missouri regiment with "Joe" Johnston, the oth er a captain in an Illinois regiment with Sherman, talked with each other forty-one years ago inside the confed erate lines at Kenesaw mountain. The "Johnny" was a guard over the dead of the union regiments, fallen %vithln the lines in the desperate charge of McCook*s brigade. The union soldier sought his brother's body and permis sion to remove it for shipment to his old home in Ilinols. Today the two men again met, this time in a committee room off the as sembly chamber of the state capitol, both to plead a common cause. They asked the house appropriations com mittee to take favorable action on a bill carrying an appropriation for the erection, of a monument on Kenesaw mountain to commemorate the deeds of Col. "Dan" McCook's brigade in that battle, and had the satisfaction of see ing the bill go to the house with a com mittee recommendation that $20,000 be appropriated. The confederate was Representative Campell S. Hearn of Qulncy. The fed eral was Capt. Ed Harlan, chief door keeper of the house, a state senator in the days immediately following the war of the rebellion and a member of the Twenty-first Illinois. Gen. Grant's first regiment. Mr. Hearn told of how Harlan had come Inside the confeder ate lines seeking the body of his dead brother. He wanted to ship it back to Illinois. Permission was refused by Gen. Johnston, and Gen. Sherman had also refused to do anything more, un derstanding why Gen. Johnston could not give permissiork "Then, it was," said Mr. Hearn, "I am sure, that Gen. Sherman first said that war was hell."

Kuropatkin has been rein forced by the garrisons of Tieling and other northern towns and a few new troops who were on their way from Russia when the battle of Mukden be gan. But even with these there seema little hope for him. True, he has some thirty and forty miles of hilly coun try, extending from Tie Pass to Feng huatsein, which might enable him to hold off the enemy for a time, but once out of the hills he has before him nearly three hundred miles of flat, open country, and innumerable rivers and streams to cross. This is what is termed the Great Valley of the Sungari, but is in fact an immense plain, bounded on the east by high mountains and extending northward into Siberia and westward into Mongolia. Klrin, east of the railway, and Harbin, the most north erly point on the railway where it branches off to Vladivostok eastward and to Siberia westward, are the cen ters of this wonderfully rich country, resembling in many respects the northwest territories of Canada. From Tie Pass the railway runs over hilla known as the divide to Kalyuan, twen ty miles, then striking into a valley, on either side of which rise high hills, emerges onto the plain just northeast of the important Chinese city of Feng huasien.

He made a sensa tional speech in which he charged that William Nelson Cromwell of New York, who was prominently connected with the sale of the Panama canal property to the United States, was the prime mover in a scheme to influence the United States in the financial affairs of the Dominican government. He as serted that Mr. Cromwell was actuated by a desire to frustrate a plan of a Mr. and Mrs. Reader, natives of Alabama, who are operating under the names of the Reader syndicate, to get certain concessions from the Dominican gov ernment and to promote the interests of a syndicate he represented, which it is alleged holds a mass of claims against the Latin-American republics, including a large part of the debts against the Dominican government. The alleged disclosures were debated all day and the senate is divided as to whether Senator Morgan made a case. The Democrats insist he did, while the leaders among the Republicans declare that the charges were made out of a mass of matter which contained no conclusive evidence that Mr. Cromwell had used any undue influence. The programme of the senate continues to be adjournment without date on Sat urday, without permitting the Domin ican treaty to come to a vote. It la probable that it will be recommitted. Getting Around the Treaty Among the senate leaders today a new plan was advanced in regard to Santo Domingo, but it deals with the next session of congress.
