Letter of Instruction From Presi?
dent Roosevelt*-The Prelim?
inary Work Begins With
First Full Meeting
of Commission.
Weshington, March 22.-Preliminary
work was begnn today by the isthmian
canal commission. The first full meet?
ing of the commission was held in the
oifiees of Admiral Walker, the chair?
man. Little of importance was accom?
plished, the session resolving itself
into an informal discussion of various
features of the preliminary work and of
preparations for the first visit of the
commission to Panama.
* General instructions to the members
of the commission were contained in a
letter from President Roosevelt to
the commission under date of March
& The letter which was read at the
meeting; says that "the commission
has been appointed to undertake the
most important and also the most
formidable engineering feat that has
hitherto been attempted."
It says the commission has been
chosen purely because of."personal
and professional reputations for integ?
rity anc ability "that it represents
neither section * nor party and as to
the majority the president has not the
slightest .idea what their political
affiliations are. The letter says the
president will not hesitate to remove
any member failing to give the begft ?
service it is possible to procure, but j
so long ss efficient service is rendered j
"you may rest assured of my hearty!
support and' backing." The letter!
says the same principles should apply
to the choice of subordinates-that,
.any employe who falls short of expec?
tations shonld be dismissed without
the slightest heed to any backing or !
. influence he may have.
"I assume as a matter of course,
that in dealing with contractors you j
will act on precisely the same princi?
ples which would apply in any great
private business undertaking.
" As to the details of the work itself
I have but little to say. It is to be
done as expeditiously as possible and
as economically as is consistent with
thoroughness. There is one matter to
which I wish to ask your special
attention ; the question of sanitatiou
and hygene. You will take measures
' to secure the best medical experts for
this purpose whom you can obtain,
and you Will, of course, make the con?
tractors submit as implicitly as your
own employes to all the rules and
regulations of the medical department
under you. I presume you will find
it best to have one head for this medi
. eal department, but that I shall leave
to your own judgement.
* 4,4 The plans are to be carefully made
with a view to the needs not only of
the moment, but of the future. The
.expenditures are to be supervised as
vigoroasy as if they were-being made
for a private corporation dependent
for its profits upon the returns. Von
are to secure the best talent this
eouury can afford to meet the condi?
tions created by every need which may
aris3. The methods for achieving the
results must be yours. What this
nation will insist upou is that the re?
sults be achieved.

His Sons Cannot Inherit Being the
Issue of a Morganatic Marriage.
London, March 23.-The death of
the Duke of Cambridge has aroused
considerable speculation as to the dis?
position of Gloucester Bouse , which,
contrary to general belief, does not
belong to the crown, but was the pri?
vate property of the late Duke, to
whom it was bequeathed by his aunt,
the Duchess of Gloucester. The
mansion occupies a commanding posi?
tion at the corner of Park Lane and
Piccadilly, and its windows look on
to both of these famous thorough?
fares. It is filled from cellar to garret
with art treasuees, including some
magnificent pictures and a wonderful
collection of jeweled snuff boxes, many
of them dating from the eighteenth
century and painted by the leading
miniaturists of the day. The
apartments are stately and contrast
pleasantly with those of the more
j modern palaces of the locality.
?Gloucester House is one of the
few great mansions, of London
where electric light has, never l$een
admitted, the Duke sticking fast to the
old custom of using candles.
Gloucester House is altogether too
palatial a mansion, and likewise
much too costly a one to admit of its
being retained by any of the Duke's
sons. There are three of the latter,
the offspring of the marriage of the
late Duke to the Dublin actress, Miss
Fairbrother, who up to the time of
her death was known as Mrs. Fitz
george, a name now borne by her sons.
This marriage was an invalid one from
a legal point of view and consequently
the sons do not inherit the rank or
title of their father. The lste Duke
felt keenly the implied slight on the
lady whom he honored as his wife,
but was never able to take position as
the duchess. Queen Victoria always
had a kindly feeling for Mrs. Fitz
george, aud to her children Windsor,
Balmoral and Buckingham palaces
were always open. King Edward has
continued to. share this feeling for
the family of the Dufce of Cambridge
and on more than one occasion has
made it a point to signal out one of
the sons for honors. Perhaps the best
known' of the three sons of the late
Duke is Col. Augustus Charles Fred?
erick Fitzgeorge, who has won his
way in the army by sheer ability rath?
er than by virtue of bis royal connec?
tions. He has seen nearly forty
years of active sevice, accompanying
Lord Napier to Magdala and the
Prince of Wales on his indian tour.
Birthday of Blind Hymn Writer.
. Bridgeport, Conn. March 24.-Miss
Fanny Crosby, tli8 famous blind
hymn writer, today celebrated her
eighty-fifth birthday in the full pos?
session of ail her faculties but the
one denied her. Miss Crosby lives
with her sister, Mrs. Carrie Rider,
and in herold age is fully# as active
as in her youth
Miss Crosby became blind in her in?
fancy, owing to improper treatment
for a fev.er. When she was fifteen
years old'she entered the New York
Institution for the Blind She was
so apt in her studies that she subse?
quently received an appointment as
teacher of rhetoric, English gram?
mar, Greek, American, English and
Roman history in the institution.
While still a teacher she com?
posed songs, which were set tb music
by George F. Root. Among the best
known are "Rosalie, the Prairie
Flower," "Hazel Dell," "Good-by,
Proud World I'm Going Home, " u The
Honeysuckle Glen" and "^There's
Music in the Air." She also wrote
the words for the cantatas, u\The
Flower Queen" and "The Pilgrim
Fathers." ;
Miss Crosby, in 1864, took ap hyam
writing aud since that time has writ?
ten nearly three thousand of tfoem.
notable among which is "Safe in the
Arms of Jesus." There is seldom ai
religious meeting at which one or
more of Mies Crosby's hymns are not
sung, and the deep religious pathos
of her writings bas been felt in
many lands.

Broom Piants Combine.
Chicago, 111., March 26.-Reports to
the contrary notwithstanding the
broom combine seems to be assured.
Af a conference held this week all
arrangements for organization of the
combine were practically completed.
The combiue will have a capital of $13, -
000,000 and will, it is said, represent
75 per cent, of the industry in the
United States. The largest plants of
New York, Ohio, Indiana and Illinois
are interested. The combination hope
to check the trade war which has been
much in evidence during the last few
years and also expects to cut the cost
of production to a minimum and
thereby increase the profits.

from St. Petersburg last night gave

March 22.
London, March 24.-A seri?3 of mes?
sages dated between March 10 and
March 17 seat by a correspondent of
The Daily Mail at Chinampho, Corea,
describes the perfect organization and
arran gemente- of the Japanese in
Corea. Elaborate preparations have
been made for landing troops and
advancing them through the country
and pontoon bridges and stables are
built wherever they are found to be
necessary. The greatest difficulty
facing the Japanese is the commissa?
riat, as owing to the poor food sup?
plies of Corea it is only possible at
present to maintain 90,000 men. *
The Japanese hold two enormously
strong positions, at Ping Yang and
on the M i oka ic-San range, between
Hwang-Jn and Seonl. The - latter,
the correspondent says, is probably
impregnable and secures Seoul from
land attacks from the northwest.
In the event of defeat it is intended
to hold the passes at Kazan, thus
protecting the Ping Yang Valley. The
Japanese troops are suffering from
dysentery and pneumonia and many
of the cavalry horses, which the cor?
respondent says are poor, have died,
but the army is full of spirit.
There probably are 20,000 Japanese
at Ping Yang, which the correspon?
dent points out might easily have been
taken when the Russian scouts first
arrived, there being then only 250
Japanese soldiers there,.
The Russians intended to make
Anju their base but owing to the de?
lay , in the arrival of reenforeements,
they were afraid they would be cut
off and' so retired. Meanwhile the
Japanese advanced to Ping Yang by
"forced marches, the troops being
almost without equipment.
According to this correspondent;
the Russians are preparing to prevent
the Japanese landing at Pak-Chon,
20 miles west of Anja, and he says
the Japanese saiiors admit that Port
Arthnr is so protected by mines and
torpedoes that it would mean death to
approach it.
Londou, March 24.-The Times this
morning prominently publishes an
opinion of a correspondent that Japan
will land her main army at New
Oh wang, which will be formed into
a magnificent base, and that she also
probably will seize Hai Cheng {15
; ?liles eastward and on the railroad)
as an additional base, and that, with?
out seriously attacking either Port
Arthur or Vladivostok, the war will
be fought on the plains of central
It ie almost certain, ia the corres?
ponded t's opinion, that the war will
be a long one and that at the worst
Japan will retain a way to retreat
overland into Corea. If she secures
New Chwang. he says, her pestige will
be established and he adds that the
waterways of southern Manchuria will
be of inestimable value in counter?
balancing the weakness of Japan in
her cavalry.
St. Petersburg, March 24.-When
Gen. Kuropatkin reaches Mukden it
is understood that the emperor's forces
at the theatre of war will be divided
into three armies-one in the penin?
sula including'the Port Arthur garri?
son under Gen. Stoessel, military
commander at Port Arthur ; a central
army under Gen. Liuevitch and a
northern army nuder Gen. Baron
Stackeiburg. Any idea that Gen.
Kuropatkin's arrival will bc signaliz?
ed by aggressive tactics is discouraged
in the highest military circles, where
attention is called to the general's
repeated injunctions-" Patience, pa?
tience, patience.'*
"We can afford to wait whether or
not the Japanese can, *' is the senti
mnet among the believers in Gen.
Kuropatkin. ; He expects to force the
Japanese to fight him on grounds of
his own choosing. There will be no
forward movement into Corea. On
the contrary, the Russians at the Vain
are now screening their concentration
to the westward and they probably
will retire as the Japanese advance
in force, harassing and retarding them
as much as possilbe until the proper
j time i to uncover the main Russian
I army.'
I The Russians also express much
j more satisfaction at tbe pres. nt situa?
tion at Liao Tang. The ?brees on the
peninsula have been reenforced to an
extent which will render a Japanese
landing there difficult, if not impos?
sible, and the garrison at Port Arthnr
has been amply provisioned to with?
stand a siege. So far as the peninsula
is concerned the preparations there
may now be regarded as complete.
Tokio, March 24.-Vice Admiral
Togo's report of the fifth attack on
Port Arthur, which was made on
March 22, reached Tokio tonight and
is as follows:
"Tho combined fleet acted according
to the plan arranged.
"Two flotillas of destroyers were
outside Port Arthur, as instructed,
from the night of the 21st until the
morning of the 22nd. Although dur?
ing this time our destroyers were
under the fire of the enemy, they sus?
tained no damage. The main fleet
arrived off Port Arthur at 8 o'clock
on the morning of the 22nd.
"I dispatched a' part of the fleet in
the "direction of Pigeon bay, and
ordered the battleships Fuji and
Yashimsha to make an indirect bom?
bardment against the inner side of the
port; -During the bombardment, the
enemy's ships gradually came out of
the harbor, and at the time when the
indirect bombardment stopped, which
was about 2 o'clock, the number of
Russian ships was five battleships,
four cruisers and several destroyers.
We believed the enemy was trying
to make a movement of their fleet to
draw us near the forts. The enemy's
ships shelled U9 indirectly and many
of their shots fell near the battleship
Fuji, but our ships sustained no
damage. About 3 o'clock our vessels
withdrew off the port."
St. Petersburg, March 24.-The war
office is in receipt of presistent reports
that the Japanese are preparing to
land on neutral Chinese territory, on
the west coast of the gulf of Liao
Tung, either at Tien Kian Chene, in
Kin Chan bay, or at Shan Hai Kwan.
Although slow to believe that Japan
.deliberately contemplates a violation
of her pledge to respect neutral Chinese
territory, the reports received at the
ministry of war are so specific that
they compel consideration. The
presence of disguised Japanese soldiers
acting as spies along the Shan Hai
Kwan road has been established, and
Russian agents seems to coincide with
other indications of an intended" land?
ing on the west coast of the gulf of
The information conveyed by these
agents seem to coincide with other
information indicating a complete
change in the Japanese plan of cam?
paign or of its entrance into a second
stage practically - involving tb9 aban?
donment of further heavy landings of
troops in Corea.
According to advices received by
the government there are only about
70,000 Japanese troops in the Hermit
Kingdom at pr?sent. The latest ad?
vices indicate ,tbat the Japanese will
not send many more soldiers into
Corea. They may make a diversion
at Possiet bay in the direction of
Vladivostock, but their main object
henceforth will be in the gnlf of Liao
Tung. The only two points feasible
for landing are Chin Wan Toa and
Tien Kian Cheng which are connected
b." sail respectively with Shan Hai
Rwan aud Kaukiau on the Pekin rail
I road. A landing at either place will
j give the Japanese possession of a
splendid strategic line by which to
strike the Russian flank and if desir?
ed, to hold Pekin in subjection.
The Russians have little faith in the
Chinese generals. Ma and Mu, who
might disregrad orders from Pekin
and join forces with the Japanese.
There is reason to affirm that the Rus?
sian line of conduct in such a contin?
gency has already- been decided upon
in principle. The assurances obtained
from Pekin require that the Chinese
authorities should oppose with their
arm}r such a step on the part of Japan.
It is learned that the Russian mili?
tary attache at Pekin is now at New
Ch wang, watching the movements
of the Chinese troops.

Amendment Proposed to Postoifice
Appropriation Bill to Allow Ru?
ral Delivery Carriers to Act
as Agents of Newspapers.
Washington, March 23.-Members
of the Senate committee on post of
fices ?re in favor of an amendment to
the pending postoffice appropr ations
bili; which will enable rural free de?
livery carriers to distribute newspa?
pers and other periodicals, and also
act as agents for newspapers along
their respective routes.
There was an interesting bearing to
day by the Senate postoffice commit?
tee, at which this subject was freely
discussed. Representatives of many
of ' the leading newspapers of the
country appeared before the committee
to advocate an amendment offered by
Senator Alger, of Michigan, which
will enable rural carriers to act as
circulation agents for newspapers along
their routes, providing it does not
interfere with their duties as Govern?
ment officials. Representative pub?
lishers present made it perfectly clear
to the members of the committee that
there is no intention of crippling the
postal service by imposing additional
duties on the carriers. It is general?
ly conceded that the rural carriers are
underpaid. The proposed plan allows
them to make such terms as they can
with the various newspapers, and
thereby add to their income within
the legitimate line of duty as mem?
bers of the postal service.
The postoffice department originally
opposed the preposition and insisted
that the carriers should be restrain?
ed from engaging in any commercial
business along their routes. Accord?
ingly the Postmaster General has re?
commended that the annual salary of
rural carriers be increased from $600
to $7f>0. So strong has been the
appeals from all parts of the country
in favor of allowing the rural carriers
to handle the newspaper circulation
along' their routes that the department
has reluctantly consented to accept
the Alger amendment, with certain
Members of the committee were
somewhat surprised today when Sen?
ator Penrose, chairman of the commit?
tee, confirmed the statement that the
department was prepared to accept the
decision of Congress in the adjust?
ment of the duties of rural carriers. In
an order to make the intention of the
committeee perfectly clear a provision
was inserted, to the effect " that rural
carriers may distribute newspapers
and other periodicals along their re?
spective routes and also act as agents
of newspapers. ' '
Members of the- committee evinced
a very fiendly interest in the subject,
and expressed themselves well pleased
that the postoffice department had seen
fit to withdraw its opposition to the
request made in behalf of the newspa?
pers. The fact that the committee
lias decided to report the amendment
favorably is very gratifying to those
interested in the matter, and it is
generally believed that the Al^e
amendment will be incorporated in
the pending postoffice appropriation

Milwaukee, Wis., March 23.-Now

They Believe That Others are Re?

New York, March 24.-That D. J.
Sully & Co., would be bale to do a
good deal better than to offer 40 per
cent, cash and 60 per cent, in notes to
the creditors was the belief expressed
by Receiver Taft today, and a new
offer from the suspended finn is ex?
Samuel Untermeyer, who is counsel
for a number of Sully's" creditors, said
today: "We demand and intend to
get the history of Sully's cotton trans?
actions. We want the fullest exposure
of the facts. Nothing else will satis?
Many of Sully's creditors are hoping
that he will reveal the identity of his
backers in the last pool. All of his
associates are said to be men who
could settle with the creditors.
Receivers Taft and Miller do not ex?
pect to learn of these backers from
Sully, but Mr. Taft says that the
books may reveal enough to show that
certain silent partners were under
obligations to stand the loss. If it
can be found that such obligations
exist steps will be taken, to make
them pay 100 cents on thc dollar.
Sully still stands ready to pay his
creditors 40 cents on the dollar in cash
and 60 cents in long time notes, hut
most of the creditors expect better re?
sults than that through the receivers.
A conference lasting half an hour
was held today in Sully's office be?
tween Receivers Taft and Miller, and
R. Seidehberg, George Chapman,
Supt. Stroud of the coffee exchange,
Expert Accountant Cuthbert, who has
been at. work on the books of the Sully
firm, and Boothby & Baldwin, counsel
for the petitioning creditors. None of
the parties to the conference would
make any statement.
A meeting of the creditors of Daniel
J. Sully & Co., was held this after?
noon. lt was called at the request of
the receivers for the^purpose of having
a committee named to represent the
general body of creditors in dealing
with the receivers.
The meeting adopted a resolution
giving President McDougall of the
cotton exchange the power to appoint
this committee, after which adjourn?
ment was taken.
Mr. McDougall appointed the follow?
ing committee :
Reinhard Siedenberg, J. Temple
Gwathmey, Edward Shearson, George
Chapman and J. S. Clark. They are
the same members of the exebarge
who were appointed as a similar com?
mittee at the former meeting of the
creditors and later discharged.
Mr. McDougall said that this com;
mittee will be without power to make
any settlement but will confer with
the receivers and act in an advisory:
capacity toward them.
Supt. King of the cotton exchange,
announced today that the recently sus?
pended firm of J. H. Garrison cc Co..v
were prepared to settle in full and that
all claims against them might be pre*
sented for settlement today.
