That in common Willi the people he at all limes with genuine patriotism, supported the t imed States and its institutions; and now is and has been a loyal supporter of the constitution, laws and government of the United States. Mr (iear, the prosecutor, then con tended that the election of Wilcox was irregular and void, ns The require ments of the United States statutes were not complied with. Mr (iear said that in Wilcox's campaign speeches he had said he would restore Queen Lili uokalani. When the witness said Wil cox had "eternally damned the Ameri cans," the delegate muttered "Lie,"' but was restrained mildly by his counsel. Mr Kobinson made a brief closing argument in behalf of Wilcox, severe ly criticising those' who had betrayed the confidence of private letters and had made them the basis of these charges.

DIED AT SURPRISE PARTY, KATE STOKES'S DAUGHTER. Miss Josephine Keating Succumbs to Heart Disease at Midnight. Fishkill Landing, N. Y., Feb 9. Miss Josephine Keating, 33 years ' old, of New London, Conn, dropped dead at the close of a surprise party given in her honor here Thursday night. She was tendered the reception at the home of her cousin, James Hayes, and at midnight, just after supper, threw up her hands and expired from heart disease. Miss Keating had in tended to leave for her home yesterday. JEALOUS!' THE CAUSE. Leonidas, Mich, Feb 9. In a fit of jealous rage Thursday night Miss Den ell Neddo threw a bottle of carbolic acid in the face' of George Laird, burning h'm so that he will lose the sight of both eyes. Accompanied by Elgin Scott, Miss Neddo called at the hotel where Laird boarded. She went to his room, where Laird was lying on a cot. After a few words she dashed the acid into his face,, which was burned to a blister. Miss Neddo and her escort then drove away. Declares She Is the Sole Heir to the J. B. Stetson Millions. Chicago, Feb 0. Friends of the late John U. Stetson, theatrical manager, and of Mile Morella, known in private life as Kate Stokes, will be surprised to learn that the woman had a daugh ter. Kate Stokes, to whom Stetson willed his Slmkio,(i00 estaTe, was not supposed to have had a daughter. The woman is Mrs D. K. Tone, wife of a Chicago lawyer, who now lives in No 5S(l Wasuington Boulevard. Mrs Tone lived iu Chicago several years, and was known as Mrs Violet Keith. This name she assumed when she came to this city in order to avoid detectives, who have worried her near ly to distraction. Last August she was married to David K. Tone. When seen yesterday Mrs Tone was not averse to talking about her claim to the Stetson millions. , "My mother, John Stetson's wife, was Mrs Catherine Stokes Stetson," said Mrs Tone. "Her husband when he died left his entire estate to her and she died ten days lataer, leaving ine sole heir to the estate. My name was Catherine Stokes. I was afterward married and laid claim to the Stetson estate tinder the name of Mrs Cather ine Shirley. Since my marriage to Mr Tone last. August I have agitated my case little, but I am conlident that, when a settlement is made the entile property will be mine. I am not worried over the outcome in the least, and for that reason I seclude myself from detectives cmploved by other claimants who are seeking a compro mise." , AMERICAN RAILWAYS. DUKE MUST WAIT. Cornwall Not to Be Made Prince for Some Time. London, Feb 9. King Edward, it i semi-otHcially reported, desires it to be known that the Duke of Cornwall and York will not be created Prince o; Wales until after his visit to the col onies. An interregnum without, the title is thought desirable. Definite preparations are being made for the duke's trip. A dispatch from Portsmouth says the royal yacht Victoria and Albert has been ordered nrenared to take King Edward to Flushing, soon after the opening of parliament, when his majesty will return Emperor William's visit to" England. The recumbent statue of Queen Vic toria, chiselled thirty years ago, is being prepared for its place on top of the sarcophagus, by the side of the prince consort's statue. Uj ESCLUTEIV'PURE LTtevVOIrR Makes the food more delicious and wholesome Their Procresi to Be Slows at the Pan-American. The progress of American railways will be most comprehensively illus trated at the Pan-American Exposi tion. The transportation exhibit will be elaborate, embracing all the varied branches. In this, as well as lu several other respects, the coming Exposition will surpass the Columbian and Paris Expositions. The display of railroad equipment will be the largest and most interesting ever seen, affording a rare treat for railroad men and the public generally. Progress is being made by leaps and bounds. During the seven years which have elapsed since the Columbian Exposition many novel and valuable inventions, and improvements WILD CAT FOR A CHUM. VIEW OF GRAPHIC ARTS BUILDING FROM ARCHWAY OE. MACHINERY BUILDG. in railway construction have been brought out. and others of great im portance will undoubtedly be given to the railway world by the time of the opening of the Pan-American Exposi tion. All of them will be among the exhibits. The railroads throughout the country are deeply interested, and nearly all of the more important ones have signified their intention to compete for the high est honors to be bestowed by the jury of awards of the Transportation De partment. Tlie smaller ones, too, have taken the infection and propose to en ter the contest. With so much interest manifested the Transportation Depart ment will surely be one of the most im portant at the Exposition. British Columbian. Vino Is Intimatf ivlth an Assortment of Wlia Beasts. HAY-PAUNCEFOTE PACT. With bear, deer, wild cats, wolves anfl tougars as his companions, George 3revy, who two years ago left Wil liamsport, Pa., and went to the Klon dike, is now in th wilds of British Co lumbia, where he is keeping a lonely vigil over property belonging to the Lemon Gold Mining company, of which his brother, M. J. Greevy. of Omaha, Neb., is president, says the Philadelphia North American. "A wld cat comes to my cabin every night," he says in a letter to his broth er, W. J. ('. Greevy, of Williarusport. "I used to throw toad out to it. and the other night I coaxed it into the cabin, wAere 1 fed and patted it- Now it. comes in every night, and I give it something to eat. Then it goes out, and I don't see it again until the next night. There is ! a big cougar around the camp, and j nearly every evening- it gets up on a. big ; cliff opposite my cabin and cries like a. baby. I will send you its skin before very long-. The other day, while down the wagon road, I turned a bend, and saw walking- toward me, less than 20 fe?t away, a big, ferocious-looking gray- wolf. My ax was the only weapon I had. I was afraid to turn my back and run. for fear it would pounce upon me. So I put on a bold front and. with my ax ready for any emergency, I gtive his wolfship half the road. The b'.uffi worked, the wolf scarcely giving- me more than a casual glance as he passed." CHEAPER THAN THE GRAVE. Cremation in Japan la an Exceedingly- Inexpensive Procegi, Says This Account. Every progressive agriculturist will want to see the Pan-American Exposi tion in Buffalo next summer. The op portunity to get new and valuable ideas of farming is one that no tiller of the soil can well afford to miss. The display in the Department of Agricul ture will surpass any ever seen at any previous exposition. The advance of cremation in Eng land, shown by the establishment of a municipal turnaee m the north and the projection of a new crematorium not far outside the four-mile radius in London, recalls the interesting history of Japan in the matter. Cremation followed Buddhism into Japan about 1.200 years ago, but it only partialiy superseued the Shinto custom of dis posing of the dead by interment. In 1S73 cremation was totally prohibited by the Japanese government, whose members seem to have had some con fused notion as to the practice being an-European, and therefore barbarous. Having discovered that, far from being un-European, cremation was the goal of European reformers in such matters, they rescinded their prohi bition before two years had elapsed. Cremation in Japan is carried out in a somewhat rough and ready manner. The cheapest process-costs about $1.12. This is scarcely adapted to western requirements and is sufficiently de scribed by the title which the foreign residents of a certain settlement "in Japan gave to the native cremation ground among the hills "Koast Meat r I-..' f . ".. British Object to Senate Demands and. Will Make Counter Proposals. London, Feb 0. -It has been learned that a reply will soon be sent 'to the United States Nicaragua canal pro ject. It will not comply with tlie sen- L ate's demands. Neither will it be in the nature of a flat refusal, though, for purposes of immediate construction, it will be tantamount to such a re fusal. It will consist mainly in a counter proposal, or proposals, likely. to necessitate extended negotiations. The nature of the proposal is not yet ascertainable. Lord Pauncefote prob ably will be the medium through whom the answer will be sent and by whom the answer will be sent and bv whom the subsequent negotiations will chiefly be conducted. In British official opinion it is likely that several months will elapse before the matter reaches a conclusion, by which time the Hav-Pauncefote treaty will have lapsed. " On the basis of the senate's amend ments and the British counter proposals now formulating it is hoped an entirely new agreement, satisfac tory to both countries, eventually will be reached.
