March I.—A special t dispatch from Telluride to the Republi can says: At the Liberty Bell mine and the Cor , net Creek bantu, below It. yesterday, , three separate snow-slide* descended and as a result fourteen men are knowu to be dead, an unknown num ber are buried In the snow, and twelve | badly Injured one* are in the hospital, while several other men who were hurt are at their homes. The first slide occurred at 7:30 o’clock yesterday morning, coming from above the Liberty Bell mine, and wrecking the boarding and bunk houses. Seven men were killed here. As soon as the news reached the city s large force of rescuer* started out. anwr while they were at work digging out the dead and injured a second slide decendcd which burled an unknown number of men. Three bodies were re covered. Tills alarmed tlio rescue party, and as a tierce storm was raging, and there was danger of other slides, word was sent to the city to send no more men out. The rescuers started for home to await the cessation of the storm ami were overtaken by a third slide and four were killed. It is believed that few if any more bodies can be recovered until the suow melts, when it is thought the list of dead may be swelled to at least a score. ’Hie most lucid and connected ac count of the first disaster Is that given by L. M. Umsted. Mr. Umsted Is em ployed in packing ore from a crusher to tlie tram station. lie had Just come from breakfast ami was In the stable saddling his animals, when lie heard a terrific crashing and rattling. The stable grew suddenly as dark as night, aud, steppiug to the door, he opened It and found the outside totally dark and the air filled with flying snow. Thinking it was a terrific gust of wluil, he slammed the stable door shut aud waited a few seconds. He peered through a crack ami as it grew light again be opened the door and saw the tram cable swinging alnuit and buckets rolling down the bill. As the snow in the air settled lie stepped out a few feet nml looking lip toward the bonrel ing and blink house, could see no signs of these buildings. Then looking down the bill, he saw lioarels ami tind>ers sticking out of the snow aud scattered about. He then went up lo the ore and train house, or where it hud stood, aud saw wlmt lie thought was a piece of over alls. Grnspiug it and attempting to pull it out. lie found he hail hold of a man’s body. Tearing away the snow nml lioiirds. he pulled out the body of (Ills Knud. The body was terribly mangled and the lieud crushed till it was no thicker j than \be two hands laid flatly to gether. He then started toward the hoarding house uud met ills brother. Charlie Umsted, who told him what hmj hap pened. Charlie was employed In the lM»arding house ami escaped by being out at the time after a bucket of wa ter. But for this Charlie must certain ly have been among tin* victim*, as none of the boarding house occupants ; e*ca|H*d. | The first slide occurred at the I,ll>er- ■ ty Bell group of mines, located in Cor- j net Creek basin, three nml n half miles north of the city, at 7:30 o’clock this morning. It was one of the larg-* est snow slides known in'the country, aud sacrificed th“ lives of seven men. It Htnrted one-half mile above the Liberty Bell tmnrdlug and bunk bouse* and cnim* down tin* mountain side so rapidly that scarcely any one had time to evade it. Tlie worst snow storm known in this section since 1895 has been raging for the past three days and it is said that the snow and fog were so dense tills morning when the slide came down that it was utterly impossible for one to *ee ten feet ahead. By *ome fortunate circumstance a large number of the miners employed on this property, and there an* between 200 and 250 on the pay roll, came to the last night and as it happened did not reach rlu* mines until after the first avalanche of snow came down. Had they Ihm*h in their lutnk house the loss of life would have becu appalling. The accident, of course, broke the tel ephone circuit, and It was an hour be fore won! or the disaster reached town, being brought down by one of the workmen who escaped. All the doctors available and many citizens at once started up tin* trail to lend sucli assistance as was in their power in diggiug out the burled and in jured men and It was well toward noon before any authentic information EXPERIENCES IN CAPTIVITY. Miss Stone Says the Brigands Treated Her Well. Salonlca. Bouinnnla. Feb.. 28.—Miss Stone and her party will soou leave for Constantinople. Miss Stone says that the brigands | always treated them well. They built n lint for the prisoners on the moun tain, provided horses for them when they traveled aud carried Mine. Tail- 1 ku’s baby whenever they were allowed ; to do ho. The brigands never came I Into contact with the troops, although i the party was obliged to halt a few time* while, on false alarms. Miss Stone’s captors made preparations for action. Miss Stone says that the brigands swore both of their captors to abso lute seeresy regarding any Information calculated to establish the identity of the brigands, the location of the places where they were concealed, or other facts likely to compromise their cap tor*. As a matter of fact, the prison er* themselves were very uncertain re garding many details of their wander ings. They did not know when they were released In what section of the country they were. An arrangement had been made to release them near Seres. Macedonia, where Dragoman Gnrgiulo and Mr. House were waiting for them: but the brigands, owing to timidity or otherwise, declared it was 1 too difficult to carry out the plan, and British Heavily Punish Boers. London. March I.—Following th‘* precedent of Jxml Robert*, who an nounced General Cronje’* Htirrender at Unnrdeburg on the anniversary of the battle of Majulm hill (February 27. Ifc81), Lord Kitchener apparently se lected the same anniversary to achieve a big success by a combined move ment, lasting two days, against the Boer forces within tlie Harrlsmlth and Van Reenen line of blockhouses. The Boer losses aggregate 000 men killed | or captured, and 2,000 horses and 28,- 800 bead of cattle fell Into the hands of the British troops. i could be secured as to the extent of the ’ awful disaster. First report* placed the dead at all the way from fifty to aeventy-ttve, but It Is now thought the death list will not exceed twenty. At noon five dead bod is bad been recovered. Five of the Injured had also been brought to town aud placed in tlie hospital. Most of those who escaped serious Injury came to town with the Injured and the dead. Just before noon bulletins over the signature of the Tom Boy company were posted, calling for all the men available to work on the slide. Snow bad been drizzling down for a day or two, probably a foot of fresh suow ac cumulating up to'last night. Just be fore midnight the snow began falling in earnest aud from midnight to noon to-dny nearly two feet had fallen. About 11 o’clock the clouds lightened up slightly and showed a disposition to break away. Tlie snow came down less heavily for a few moments, but the respite was brief ami by noon it was snowing harder than ever. F. G. Cleminor. it is said, was sitting at his desk and innking out the time of the employes of the company when the crash came and all the Isioks of the company recording the names of those on tlie payroll at the mine were de stroyed. While at tills hour It is positively known that fourteen 'men are killed, whose names are given below, it ia be lieved by many that with tlie advent of spring, when the suow melts, there will he some startling disclosures in Cornet Creek gulch. The company can not tell from its books how many men are lost, for the reason that the miners who survived have not reported. Among those who at once rushed to the scene of tlie disaster were John Herron, manager of the Tom Boy Gold Mines Company, and J. W. Lyons, for merly foreman of the Tom Boy mill. The latter was caught in the edge# of tin* second slide, which broke some what higher up the mountain and came down in tlie path of the first. He say# some of the miners acted like madmen and did not appear to know what* they were doing. At 1:30 word came from tlie Liberty Bell office asking that bulletins lie. lasted asking for all the help possible, as a second slide hml come dowu, cover ing the rescuing party. The second slide, which came down in tlie track of tlie first and caught the rescuing party, killed Harry Chase, L \ S. Stanley. G«*orge ltohwer ami W. 8. Gregory. Only tin* body of Chase was recovered. The following received injuries more or less serious in this slide: Leo Carroll. Stockton Smith. Kimtc 'i'lllson, John isakson nml Charles Hall. A third slide came down and killed four. After the rescuers quit work I ami Ktart«*d for town a party wni* caught in a slide near the curve sta tion on tin* train, and four men were killed. They were: (ins Von Flluter, John It. Powell and Paul Palprn. I)r. Allen was In this party and re reived Injuries, hut got out safe. None of those bodies were recovered Several men from the mine came tr town last night aud after the tired slide others started down. As fast at j the Injured were taken out crews start I ed to town witli them, hence It is diffl- I cult to determine who and how many i were missing. Am! it is not known who nor how many were In the crowd , of rescuers caught by tlie second slide Men from tin* mine who came down since the second slide seemed to think the dead there will number a dozen or fifteen, or perhaps more. | A Inrge party of men were at work shoveling in tlie slide of tlie morning and when the second slide came they had recovered seven bodies. At 2:IC p. in. word came to town to send no more men: that tin* storm was so so- ' vere that the work of rescue could only he carried on under the most extreme danger to the liviug ami that tlie men hurled in tlie snow were all dead be yond question. It is not known certainly how many of tlie rescuing party were caught in tlie second slide. AH tin* men have now come off tlie liill aud no attempt will Is* made to recover the bodies un til tlu* storm subsides nml the snow settles. The list of known dead follows: L. I>. Stanley. Harry K.

Feb. 28.—The treasury department has received a request from New York for the privilege of do jHisitlug S2.OO(),<XM) in gold in the sub treasury there with the privilege of withdrawing it at San Francisco, pre sumably for shipment to tlie Orient. The request also says that probably SI4,tHX>,OOO will Ik* required before tlie middle of March. As this transaction is of advantage to the government, tlie department having an excess of gold in Sau FYnnelsco, the request has Ikh*u granted. New York. Feb. 28.—Additional en gagements of gold were made this morning, making the total amount to be shipped today $3,5(K).000. The Na tional.

The House committee on corpora* k tlone reported on the two railroad eom ' mission bills last Monday. The Pitscbke measure wa* indefinitely post poned. and the Ballinger bill was sub mitted without recommendation, il The Senate did a notable piece of t work Tuesday, wbeu it passed the Sluu- I ulaon tunnel bjll l»y a decisive vote, j During the afternoon the measure was p given Its first reading in the House, j and It Is the intention of its supporters f to press it to an early vote. The revenue bill is now ready to emerge from the house committee of e the whole. That committee Monday jr afternoon complete! its consideration i of the last sections, the amendments >• being those necessary in order to trans r form the state board of assessors’ sec . tions into a scheme for a stale board of equalization. The amendments were f ordered printed ns fast as the clerks i could prepare them for the printers. There is a strong sentiment growing 1 In the Legislature in favor of the Mou i tana s3’steiu of taxing mines. Iu Mon i tana the full gross production of each t mine Is taxed, after deducting the cost t of extracting the same from tlie miue, with the cost of transportation aud re * ductlou. This catches the great dlvi r dend producers, and yet is fait* to small ? mine owners. It will undoubtedly meet i strong opposition from the mlniug * members, yet may be acceded to as a ■ compromise measure. The next important measure to claim r the attention of the House will be the . Gunnison tunnel bill. Mr. Hammond claims that it will pass by a substan t tial majority. The fight over tin* * Buckllu Australasian tax constitution i al amendment will probably be fought out on the floor of the House, the Bell 1 bill repealing tin* submission clause ' furnishing the theme. It would seem that the repealers have a majority iu > the House, while their opponents con -1 trol the Senate. 1 At its meeting in Pueblo February ' 19th, the Retail Grocers and Butchers’ Association of Colorado elected the fol -1 lowing named officers: George N. Ord way of Denver, president: J. A. Gnl i brnltli of Fort Collins, first vice presl ! dent; J. It. Gardner of Victor, second 1 vice president; W. F. Ilazen of Lnw ' son. third vice president; A. P. Nelson of Canon City, fourth vice president; 1 G. V. Richards of Denver, secretary; ’■ W. C. Wilson of Greeley, treasurer. . The next meeting will lie at Denver, iu January next. The revenue bill passed second read -1 lug iu the House Thursday afternoon. ', Tlie Senate should not take much time in disposing of tin* bill. Practically every point upon which a conflict be -1 tween tin* two bodies was feared lias been adjusted to the satisfaction of the Senate. The measure should reach the governor before the close of next week. Prompt adjournment should follow its ■ passage. The representatives of the ' mining counties renewed the fight on the Neeley amendment and succeeded In securing a modification. It is sub stantially the substitute presented by Mr. Sprague on Wednesday, and which 1 was once adopted by tin* House by a majority of one. It was then reconsid ered and Mr. McGuire suggested im portant amendments. It was in that form It was adopted yesterday. It pro vide* tlmt producers shall lie assessed 1 on their smelter returns and non-pro ducers at not more than fifty per cent, of the lowest producer iu the district. Some of its opponents threatened to opiiose the entire hill on third . reading if tin* section wore not changed, but it is not probable that they can muster any great strength. There is a general disposition to pass the law up to the Senate iu It* present i form. Insurance Companies were ox- I empted from the operations of the fiat ; tax: the old rates of Interest on delin quent taxes were restored, and it was decided that all druggists must ’ pay tlie state liquor tax. When the flnul I vote was reached on the recommenda tions of the committee of tlie whole, only ten men opposed tlie Dill while forty-four voted for It. Wednesday was a warm day in the House. The cause of it all was tlie section of tlie revenue bill providing for the assessment of mining proper -1 ties. Two weeks ago the Neely amend ment hail been adopted by a decisive vote. It taxed all the mines, developed and undcvclo]>cd. at full cash value. There was a general sentiment that this legislation was too stringent, and yesterday the attempt was made to modify it. By a close vote the Briscoe substitute, taxing producers at Gift 3- per cent, of their gross proceeds and non-producers at not more than the smallest producers, was beaten. Some of the Arapahoe members were absent, | and it was charged that they were en deavoring to dodge the record-making vote. These charges were renewed when a few iniuutes later the mining contingent sprung a surprise on their . opponents by securing the adoption of the Sprague amendment by a vote of 28 yeas to 27 nays. Tills proposition laid lieeii prepared by Senator Ilallett, and when presented its supporters had no idea it would carry. Mr. McGuire of Fremont arrived in the chamber, however, in time to cast the deciding rote for the amendment. The situation was dramatic in the extreme aud pro duced some ill-feeling. A call of the house wa* ordered and all the ab sentees except Mr. Bradley secured. His opponents chnrgcd him with pur posely absenting himself, and it was resolved at 4 o'clock In the afternoon that no more business would Ih> trans acted until he appeared. The House remained in session, with the exception of au informal recess, until 9 o’clock, while the sergeant-at-arms, aided by the police, scoured tlie city for the miss ing member. At the hour named it was resolved to go on with business. By a very clow* vote the Sprague vote wus reconsidered. This left the Neeley , amendment still in the bill. Various substitutes were offered, but all were voted down. Finally it was determined that the debate should lie postponed ; until this morning. In the meantime Mr. Bradley had walked into the House and had lieon taken into cus | tody by the sergeant-at-arms. He was ( put on trial and declared that he had ' been attending to private business aud did not know that lie was required In the House. The excuse was not ac cepted. By a large majority he was de | dared in contempt and his punishment fixed at a fine of $lO aud a reprimand by the Speaker. At midnight Wednesday night J. J. Bradley, one of the representatives from Arapahoe county, stood at tlie 1 bar of tlie House aud received a scath ing reprimand from Speaker B. F. Montgomery, nml was ordered to pay a fine imposed by the House. It was an nipressive scene, and was n fitting cli max to tlie most intensely interesting session of any branch of the Colorado Legislature held within recent years. Mr. Bradley had been absent without eave, seriously delaying the business it the session. LATE WASHINGTON NEWS AND CONGRESSIONAL PROCEEDINGS The postmaster general lias Issued a general order announcing the increase of pay for rural delivery mall carriers SIOO each per annum. Prince Henry of Prussia on Thurs day visited Mount. Vernon, placed wreaths on Washington’s tomb and planted a linden tree near it. In the evening he dined with the President. The senate'committee on foreign re lations authorized a favorable report on the bill reforming the consular service. The bill requires a civil service exam ination of applicants for consular places. Secretary Root has called the atten tion of Congress to the need of pro viding for the fifty companies of Phil ippine scouts, comprising about 5,000 men. A deficiency appropriation is re quired of $515,000. The Senate has confirmed the nomi nation of Medical Inspector Presley M. Itixey, U. S. N., to be chief of the bureau of medicine and surgery in the navy, with the rank of rear admiral. Also other naval promotions. Governor Taft continued his state ment before the House insular com mittee Tuesday, dwelling on the good and bad characteristics of the Fili pinos. He denied reports that they were cowardly and related an instance in which a few Filipino scouts along with United States troops saved the day. As to their treachery, he said this was due largely to their being be tween two tires. President Roosevelt and party left shortly before midnight Monday for New York to witness the launching of the yacht Meteor, built for the Em peror of Germany. Accompanying the President were Mrs. Roosevelt, Miss Alice Roosevelt, who is to christen the yacht; Secretary Root, Miss Root, Sec retary Hitchcock, Commander and Mrs. Cowles. Senators Lodge and SjKjoner and Representative Llttnuer. The sub-committee of the Senate com mittee on privileges and elections which was appointed to formulate n proposition for the proper punishment of Senators Tillman and MaLauriu of South Carolina, for their offense to the Senate of last Saturday, practically concluded to recommend that the two senators be severely censured for their conduct, and to limit the punishment to censure. This position is due large ly to the threat of Democrats to discuss any action for suspension at great length. They recognize the fact that if so disposed the minority can obstruct all legislation for an indefinite time and probably continue the present session of Congress far into the summer. Some of them also hold the view that cen sure is a more severe and certain form of punishment than suspension. These are the reasons which have led the Re publican members of the sub-commit tee to agree to a resolution of censure, and nothing is left to complete the pro ceedings but to secure the assent of their Republican colleagues who are not members of the sub-committee. The Philippine tariff bill, ns passed Monday, provides that articles import ed into the Philippine archipelago from the United States shall be re quired to pay the duties levied against them by the Philippine Commission, and paid upon like articles Imported into the nrchiiHdago from foreign coun tries; that articles imported into the United States from the Philippines shall pay a duty of seventy-five per cent, of the rates fixed by the Dlngley law, less any export taxes paid upon the articles sent from the Philippine archipelago, ns required by the Philip pine Commission. All articles now im ported free Into the United States shall lie hereafter exempt from exi>ort duty im|H>sed in the Philippines. The blil exempts the commerce passing lx»- tween the United States and the Phil ippines from the o|>eration of the navi gation laws of the United States until July 1, 1004, and authorizes the Phil ippine Commission to issue licenses to craft now engaged in lighterage or ex clusively harbor business, provided such craft are built in the United States or the Philippines, or owikml by citizens of the United States or by in habitants of the Philippines. The du ties and taxes collected in pursuance of this act shall be paid Into the treasury of the Philippine islands and used for their liencfit. All articles manufac tured in bonded warehouses of import ed materials, or of materials subject to internal revenue tax. when shipped from the United States to the Philip pines shall be exempt from the inter nal revenue, and all taxes paid ui>on all articles sliipixMl to the Philippine is lands since November 1, 1901, shall Ik* refunded. The most important development Tuesday to the Tillman-McLnuriu epi sode was the act of Senator Frye, pres ident pro tern, of the Senate, in order ing the clerk of the Senate to restore the names of the two South Carolina senators to the roll. If this plan is carried out, this act will be followed by the adoption by the Senate of a resolution liefore a vote on any other subject taken suspending the two sen ators for some definite time. The order of Senator Frye for the restoration of the names to the rolls was issued al most Immediately after the Senate con vened to-day, and was the result of a general conference among the Republi can leaders of the Senate. When asked for an explanation of this order. Senator Frye said: “In my rulings yesterday I believe that I was strictly within parliamentary laws; that sena tors in contempt are not entitled to rec ognition either to speak or to vote, and that logically their names should not lie called. I still adhere to that opinion, but. desirous of shifting the responsibility from the chair to the Senate, I have directed the clerk to re store to the roll the names of the two senators from South Carolina.” At the conference of the Republican leaders Senator Frye’s ruling was exhaustively discussed, the construction being that the action of the president pro tem. in striking the names of the South Car olina senators from the rollv and his refusal of a request to have their names called was beyond precedent in the Seunte, anil not entirely Justified. On this account it was decided that this particular phase of the question should Ik* immediately taken up by rhe committee on privileges and elections. The sub-committee of the Senate committee on foreign relations, which had been giving especial attention to the legal aspect of the reciprocity treaties, has reported its findings to the full committee, and Senator Spooner was authorised to prepare a written report on the subject. The committee concludes that the power to make commercial treaties rests with the President and the Senate, and that * the fact that they involve questions of '■ tariff does not render It necessary that the Honse of Representatives should have equal opportunity to cousldfi them. Tlbe sixth National Congress of Moth ers began its sessions here Tuesday. A large* number of the delegates are in the city. The program for the afternoon included the address of the president, Mrs. Theodore W. Birney, greetings from sister organizations and reports of officers,' committees and delegates. Despite the unfavorable weather, a t large audience greeted Mrs. Theodore W. Birney. the president, when she called the congress to order. In her annual address, Mrs. Birney said that what is most needed to effect improve ment along any of the many lines where reform is essential Is systematic agitation, whereby public opinion' is enlightened ns to existing conditions, and the methods for bettering them. The nomination of Ben Daniels, an ex-rough rider, to be marshal of Ari zona, confirmed by the Senate before it had hoard of his record as an ex eonvict, a hold-up man and a brace game gambler, will be revoked by the President. Daniels was a personal nominee of President Roosevelt. The President knew him ns a brave soldier and desired to reward' him. There were ugly rumors In Washington about Daniels when his nomination was re ferred to the judiciary. After his nom ination was confirmed tlie story came that Daniels had served a term in pris on for larceny and a great row was raised In the Scuatc because he had l>een confirmed without facts being brought to the knowledge of that body. President Roosevelt called on Daniels for an explanation and the letter re ceived in reply was not satisfactory. Senator Turner has Introduced a res olution in the Senate for Investigation by a Senate committee of the conduct of Indian schools in this country* The resolution tells of a startling state of affairs among some of the schools, of the admission of scholars Infected with tuberculosis and contagious diseases, and says that the mortality among the scholars is appalling. One exhibit quotes an inspector of schools ns say ing that it is his belief that of every detail of either boys or girls who sweep the dormitory rooms of Indlun board ing schools three out of four die of tu berculosis within live years. The res olution says: “There is an intermix ture of the two sexes In such schools, without proper supervision in many cases, with the result that many of the female children arc debauched and the morals of the children of both sexes perverted and destroyed.” General Smith, In command of the troops on the island of Samar, cables that Lieutenant Streblor’s scouts have captured Lukban, the notorious leader of the Samar rebels, and brought him to Lnguan. The officials of the War De partment regard the capture of Luk ban as the most important military event since Aguinaldo’s capture. He was ruu down on the Island of Samar. The place of his confinement Is a tiny island in a hay on the north coast of Samar. Luklian is one of the most en ergetic and ferocious of roliels. He is a half-breed, a mixture of Chinese and Filipino stock, and he has been an ir reconcilable foe from the first. Ho had various fastnesses in the mountains of Samar from which he would descend upon the const towns, and his reign • of terror was so complete that the en tire population of the Island paid, trib ute to him as the price of freedom, from attack. Iu the course of his examination Tuesday liefore the Senate committee ou the Philippines. General Hughes, who was provost marshal general in Manila during the American military rale there, explained the establishment of a hospital in that city for lewd wo men. lie said that he alone had been, responsible fur this act. which had been so freely criticised In the United States, and that he did not regret Ills act. “If the evil lnul not been checked.” said he, “fully two regi ments would have been disabled by the time of the outbreak iu the follow ing February.” General Hughes also told of the condition of the civil pris oners turned over by the Spanish au thorities when Manila was surren dered. There were 2,000 of these, ami many of them were cruelly ironed. The irons were immediately taken oflT the prisoners, and there was a pile of lmlf a cord of iron. j An extended spcccn on the pending Philippine tariff bill was delivered. In the Senate Friday by Mr. Morgan of Alabama. Speaking of the claims which had been made that there was no lawful government in the Philip pines, Mr. Morgan, with earnestness, said there is a government there, anti he was glad to say, a very good gov ernment. suitable to the character of these people and the circumstance* In which we found them. It would ad vance the esteem of the Filipinos for the United States If they could have a delegate In Congress, as in the cose of Hawaii, said Mr. Morgan. This, he thought, would Ik* no violation of the constitution. Referring to the work of the Philippine Commission, their per sonality and tlielr ability, he paid a tribute to the late President McKinley, who, he said, was the happiest man in the world in making selections of men for responsible position, whe always could be relied upon to do the right thing at the right time and In the right way. After eight hours of tumultuous de bate Monday the Senate passed tlie Philippine tariff bill by a vote of 4C to 29. a strictly party vote. Mr. Tillman and Mr. McLaurin. the two senators from South Carolina, who on Saturday last were declared by the Senate to be In contempt because of their fight in the chamber were not permitted by voire or vote to participate in tlie pro ceedings. The question ns to their right to vote precipitated a sharp de bate. lasting nenrlj* two hours. The president pro tempore, Mr. Frye, held that the two senators could not vote and he was sustained by a majority of the Senate. During the debate on the Philippine hill Mr. McComns and Mr. Wellington* of Maryland became involved in a controversy in the course of which the latter declared that If Mr. McComns should make his statements outside the Senate chain her he would brand them ns a malicious falsehood. He was called to order promptly and resumed his seat amid considerable excitement.
