We Will Ask Great Britain to
Sit on Filipinos-
TI1E JUNTA AT KONG KONG.
Stem to Be Bothering the Officials sit
Washington Laws of Neutrality
Are Said to Have Been Violated.
New York. Nov 3. Great Britain
will be requested by tile government
to suppress toe Filipino junta at Hong
Hons, says a Washington special to
the world.
Secretary Ifay will direct Minister
Choaro to represent to the British gov
ernment that the Filipinos are main
taining a junta at Hour Kong for the
purpose of aiding Filipinos, in theiP
rebellion against the authority
of the ' United States in the
Philippines,' and that they are
practically making Hor'.Kong a
base of supplies for the insurrection
ists. Objectir.n will be based on the
ground of a violation of the laws of
neutrality. Great Britain is expect
ed o promptly comply with the re
quest. Tn this same eonnecticn it is
naid that Lopez, the representative of
Agcncillo. who recently came to the
United States from Europe, will lie
closeiy watched and if excuse be found
by reason of his conduct he will not
be permitted to remain within the bor
ders of the United Slates.
The suppression of, the junta at
Deng Kong is in accord with the pol
icy now to be pursued with respect to
the insurrection in the Philippines.
With the return to Manila of the
troops sent to China. General MacAr
thur will be able to inaugurate a vig
orous campaign.
FEW CHANGES IN THE CABINET.
Attorney-General Griggs the Only
Member Likely to Retire.
Washington, Nov S. From present
indications there, is little prospect of
any sweeping change in President Me
Kinley's cabinet in his second term.
Attorney-General Griggs appears to be
the only member of the president's
oliieial family who is likely to retire
from the cabinet. Secretary Root de
clined to be a candidate for the repub
lican nomination for vice-presidency
on the ground that he wanted to re-'
main at the head of the war depart
ment. While Secretary Hay has said
to several of his friends that he ex
pected to be In official life for a brief
period only, it is now said that he will
remain in the state department. Sec
retary Long twice endeavpred to get
the president to accept his resignation,
but Mr McKinley persuaded hioi to re-,
main. In the understanding" tbat'Mr
Long might retire at the beginning of
the second term if he had not changed
his mind. There has evidently been
a change lately in Mr Long's position
and Ins friends will be surprised if he
should leave the cabinet. Secretary of
the-Treasnry Gage. Postmaster-General
Smith. Secretary of the Interior
Hitchcock and Secretary of Agricul
ture Wilson are almost certain to ra
mnin In office. ,
The president, it is understood, is
very much opposed to any changes la
his cabinet, atul ihere is a disposition
among the members to accede to his
wishes ia that respect.

LONDON ON THE ELECTION.
Members of Banking Houses Pleased
' With the Kesujt."' '
New York, Nov S England's lead
ing representatives of high finance
have been interviewed by the London
correspondent of the Woild "relative
to the election in the United States.
The governor of the Bank of Ens-'
land, Samuel Stewart Gladstou'-, said:
"The Bank of England never gives
opinions, but my personal view you
are welcome to. McKiuley's election
must have a healthy effect both liuan-c-ially
and politically. I consider it, in
the iim place, as a great security fai
th e. peace of the world. Here, undoubt
edly, the belief has been that if Bryan
were elected it might mean disturb
ance a::d uuaettleinent in tin; Uuaiieial
world. Now we may look to a revival
of, business and a strengthening of
American securities."
Hon Francis Banns, the working
ehiif of the lirin of Baring Bros, said:
"The good effect of McKiuley's elec
tion lias been already reflected in tu.
American market, where prices have
hardened greatly. I believe lhat it
will Increase confidence and that busi
ness will necessarily improve. English
capital will be more freely invested in
American securities and "undertakings.
As. to its bearing on bimetallism, that
is too big a question to go into to-day.
Sufficient for the day is the evil there
of?. At the London office of the Morgans.
Pierpont Morgan said: "1 consider
that the settlement of the question is
a relief to business interests both here
and in America. The general effect
on commerce and finance must be ex
cellent. For the past fortnight prices
have shown an upward tendency aud
the general relief has been expressed
by tlie further immediate improve
ment. 'The silver movement has got its
finishing stroke. The buying of Amer
ican securities here is mainly for
America. There had been a steady
stream of buying for some time past,
but now that McKinley is elected Eng
lish money will also be forthcoming
for American stocks.''
Sir Samuel Montagu, head of the
well known bankers of that name,
said: "In consultation with my part
ners we agreed that if Bryan was
elected Americans would immediately
begin' to hoard gold., .apprehending
some kind of silver legislation that
would draw on our gold reserves, caus
ing a striucency in the money mar
ket. This fear has been removed by
Mr McKiuley's election and now the
drain of gold will stop: therefore the
effect on the money market will be
good. It will also improve commerce
aud enhance sound American securi
ties for investors and manufacturers
who feared the possibility of Bryan's
election and were uncertain whether
they would be paid in gold or silver."
SOME ELECTION RETURNS.
Governor Beckham Says. He Is Sure
of Election.
Louisville Ky, Nov 8. With returns
from all but sixty-two out of 1.884
precincts in Kentucky, the Courier
Journal publishes Bryan's majority at
7,774 and Beckham's at 4.00S. The
missing precincts are about evenly di
vided between democrats and republi
cans. Governor Beckham, at democratic
headquarters, said: "I am absolutely
certain that I have been elected gov
ernor bv a majority of between 5,000
and 10.000."
Leslie Combs, chairman of the re
publican state campaign committee,
said: "We still believe that Mr
Yerkc-s has been elected by a majority
of 3.000 votes. Our figures show that
McKinley has run 000 .votes " behind
Yerkes. At least 3.000 republican bal
lots have r.ot yet been counted in cer
tain counties and these will increase
the republican vote. We also claim
the election of four republican con
gressmen, namely. Boreing. in the
eleventh district: Irwin in the fifth;
McKenzie Moss, in thir third, and Hop
kins, in the tenth. We a,re also of tha
opinion that S. J." Pngh lias been elect
ed over Kehoe In the ninth district."
Portland. Ore. Nov 8. Complete re
turns from nil but three small coun
ties in the state give McKinley a plur
ality of 14,223..

an and elect all six democratic con
gressmen. The election was very

laiOBMIlGISS.
Fifteen Year Old ' Girl Leaves
Her Homo.
She Is The Daughter of a Retired
Grain Merchant General 'Alarm
Sent Out By Police In An Effort
To Locate The Girl. ;
Now York, Nov 8. Infatuated by
the prospect of a career as an actress,
Beatrice Lem.sou, the 15--year-old
diina-hier of a retired grain merchant
of Millers Falls, Mass. lias left her
home. William Lemson, the girl's
father, believes that she bus come to
this city to find employment through
one of the Mctroplitau , theatrical
agencies.
At his request, a general alarm waa
sent out from police headquarters last
night, with special instructions to ex
amine carefully the identity of all girls
who have recently made application
for employment through the theatri
cal agencies.
Beatrice Lemson left her -home on
November 2 with an armful of text
books, which she had been studying on
the preceding night, she started for
school as usual, at half past eight
o'clock in the morning. '
When evening came and his daugh
ted had iiot returned. Mr Lemson be
came alarmed. He sent a servant to
the home of the girl's teacher to in
quire about Beatrice. She, had not at
tended school that day. '
Fearing that some misfortune luid
befallen his daughter, Mr Lemson
hurried to the home of Beatrice's most
intimate friend, a girl about her own
age.
When questioned. she told, the
troubled father that Beatrice had run
away from home. The girl said that
Beatrice had long desired to become
an actress, but had feared to con
fide her ambition to her parents.
She had saved her pin money, the
friend said, until S30 had been accumu
lated and had then resolved -to come
to New York. This confidant said that
she thought Beatrice had come to
this city on November 2.
Letters written by Mr Lemson failed
tn bring satisfactory information, and
yesterday he came to this city to per
sonally search for his lost daughter.
Beatrice Lemson is pretty, about five
feet three inches in height and has
light hair and blue eyes. When she
left home the girl wore a blue silk
dress, and blue silk waist and a Tam
O'Shanter cax.
' APPROVE OF SIR WILFRID.
As Premier of the Dominion of Can
ada.
London, Nov 8. The editorials In
the papers here to-day express warm
approval of the re-election of Sir Wil
frid Laurier. the premier of the domin
ion of Canada, and the return Of the
liberal government to power. The
Pall Mall Gazette voices the general
tone of the comment In saying:
"Sir Wilfrid laurier is the living
embodiment of the spirit required in
Canada. It looks as if he might have
have as long a spell of power as Sir
John Mac-Donald. Not only is this
French Canadian and enthusiastic
British imperialist statesman one of
the most inspiring and most useful
personalities in the empire! but' the
election attempts to turn race feeling
to his disadvantage have deserved the
severe defeat."

Much Speculation As to What It Was
All About Said to Have Outlined a
Coursu to' Pursue lor Balance of
Their Terms
When the aldurmen adjourned last
nijiht. Chairmau Hull gave the repub
lican ,ii em hers of - the hoard the wink
and a few sutiundx later they were
tucked away in the nute-room. talk
ing" in a manner' which would lead one
to believe that they had just com
mitted some event Vrime and had met
to plan a way out of the dilemma, aud
feared that the tables and chairs about
them had ears aud mijjht let the cat
out of the ba.u. It was said thai they
outlined a plan of action for the bal
ance of " the year, including what
should be done in reference to consolidation,-.
the. annual appropriations,
recommendations regarding transfers
from one appropriation to another, and
various other matters of more or less
interest. Whatever way things may go
for the balance of the year between
the aldermen and thtj- "creatures," as
General Kellogg termed the board of
public works last night, it cannot be
denied that, so far. the relations be
tween these two bodies have been har
monious to a degree, never before
known since the introduction of the
new charter. The aldermen, republi
cans as well as democrats, have on all
occasions manifested a disposition to
help out the board of public works,
and in consequence a vast amount of
important work has been transacted
in all parts of the city since the pres
ent administration came into power,
without any of the jars which have
been so noticeable in the past. It was
thought when Mayor Kilduff return?d
to power that the old fights between
his honor aud Chairman Hall that,
were such a marked feature of the pre
vious Kilduff adminisiration, would be
renewed, but those who thoua-ht so
erred in their calculations, and the pub
lic has profited by the burial of the
axe.. When Mayor Kilduff was at the
helm before the aldermen lost no op
portunity to trip him up. and on that
account he was constantly acting on
the defensive. This time the situation
is reversed and everything goes like
clock work. What caused th, change
of front on the part of the aldermen?
That's a question which probably one
would not be far from answering cor
rectly if he should say that It is due
in a great measure to the fact that the
aldermen are-'more conversant this
year than ever before with the why
and "wherefore of recommendations
sent to them , by' the board of public
works. Three of the aldermen. Messrs
Mahaney. Rlakeslee and Chesson. are
members of the board of public works
and keep posted vnon what takes place
there and are readv at all times to give
their associates , in th alderm-anie
chamber such information as they de
sire as to why this petition was denied
and why that one was acted uponJa
vorably. It Is a good plan., too. and
would have prevented lots of rows in
the past between the aldermen and the
board of public works if it had been
nut into practice when the new char
ter was. adopted.

parties who have neglected to comply

port all delinquenista the prosecuting

ent with many people in the matter of
carrying out orders of this nature, but
things seem to have reached a point
where something should be done in
order to compel iieople.who have been
hanging back -to comply with the ordW
the same as others. No doubt this wjll
create a big howl on the part of thotee

TWO SALOONS ROBBED
Half a Dozen Unknown Men Arrested
This Afternoon.
Two saloons were broken into last
evening and the police are under tlie
impression that half a dozen unknown
men who were arrested this afternoon
for intoxication, were connected with
the burglaries, though at present they
have no evidence to support that idea.
One of the saloons is situated at No
10 South Riverside street , and the
other on the corner of Spring and
East Main streets. They are conduct
ed by a Pole and an Italian respective
ly. Liquors, tobacco and money wer
taken. In each instance, though, not
much of the latter was found in either
saloon. v
The men who have been arrested
are all strangers to the police and were
sleeping oft' the effects of over-indulgence
when taken into custody. The
officers who made the arrests -were
Detective Cahev, Sergeant Fagan and
Officers Brickel. J. Sullivan and Hick
ey. A report reached the police sta
tiou.this forenoon that two strange
men were demanding money from wo
men they encountered on Bank street?
All this indicates that the city has
been visited by a gang of lawless char
acters, the advance guard of a horde
of tramps that is supposed to be com
ing in this direction from up Hartford
way. Tlie pockets of those who are
in' custody were filled with small
tilings for domestic use. such as iron
ing wax. papers of pins and polishes
of various' -kinds. . Housekeepers
would do well to be on the lookout for
such visitors. . .

MARRIAGE ANNULLED.
The Marchioness Released, froin the
Unhappy AVedding of Convenience. '
London, Nov 8: There was a hear
ing in camera yesterday before Judge
Jeuue of the probate, divorce and ad
miralty division of the high court, in
the suit brought , by the Marchione'ss
of Anglesey for the annulment of her
marriage to the marquis, who is the
head of the Paget family, and a decree
was granted to her. '
This marriage was solemnized".. In
1S98. It was really a marriage of con-
venience between cousins for the pur- -pose
of inheriting property 1 which
could not be touched singly by either
of them. An arrangement was.. made,
by which the couple agreed - to live
their own lives. For some reason this
arrangement was not- satisfactory,
hence the divorce proceeding's. : A-rumor
has been in circulation that when
he divorce is granted the, marchioness
will wed Count -von Hatzfeldt. the
German ambassador to Great Britain. ,
