He was swathed in rolls of cotton and wore a long white beard and when his clothes ignited from a candle the fire enveloped him almost ins antly. The report of the appraisers on the damage sustained by American resi dents of China as a result of the up rising in China, shows that 230 claims were submitted by Americans who suf fered loss bv the Boxer war aggregat ing $4,000,000, but only $1,000,500 of this amount will be available out of the indemnity which China has been called upon to pay for the damage done to the foreigners.

John Wachs, a non-union miner, was murdered and his beheaded re mains placed beside the Lehigh Valley railroad track at Pittsburg, Pa., where they were found Saturday morning. The head was cleanly severed from the body as if chopped with a cleaver and there was no blood on the railroad tracks. Wachs was opposed to the mine strike and it is thought that this had considerable to do with his death as his home was dynamited a couple of months ago. The federal court at Keokuk, Iowa, has decided that express companies are only agents of the venders in carrying liquors and collecting and returning money; are not liquor dealers since they do not sell and need not pay the special tax required by law. In the case in question, the United States vs. the Adams Express company, the cor poration was indicted for carrying on the I) 11 si 1, ess of a retail liquor dealer without having paid the tax. The court in this opinion has overridden the de cision of the supreme court of Iowa. St. Paul physicians are watching with interest the case of William An derson, 13yearsold, who is being treat ed for cretinism. He has been with out an intelligent mind since his birth, but is now slowly acquiring the power of speech. An effort will be made in a few days to produce an association of ideas in bis brain. This disease, roughly defined as congenital lack of brain power, is seldom found outside certain valleys in Switzerland. Its victims are generally considered hope less idiots. There are few cases on record in this country. A movement has been started among the mine workers to increase the salary of President Mitchell Bt the coming meeting of the National Association of United Mine Workers. His present salary is $ 1,800 per annum and that of Secretary-Treasurer Wilson $1,500. During the anthracite strike these men contributed 25 per cent of their earn ings and this, added to regular assess ments, made Mitchell's salary less than $5 per day, while Wilson, who handled millions of dollars, received only about $4. It is now proposed to give Mitchell $3,000 per annum and make a corresponding advance for Wil son. Laura Biggar was acquitted and Dr. Charles C. Hendricks and Samuel Stanton, formerly justice of the peace. were found guilty by tbe jury at free hold, N.

Mrs. Jessie Benton Fremont, widow of Gen. John C. Fremont and daughter of Thomas H. Benton, for thirty years a United States senator from Missouri, died Saturday night at her homo in Los Angeles, Lai. at the age of 7o years. She was taken ill with pneumonia Christmas morning and in a short time lapsed into unconsciousness from whict she never recovered. No work was done in the coal mines Christmas Day and Saturday the Phil adelphia and Reading Railroad com pany reported 20 collieries and 4 wash eries idle and 10 collieries and 4 wasn eries shorthanded on account of failure of miners to report for duty. Too much Cristtuas cheer is the cause given for this lack of workers. Five collieries are idle by reason of high water. The committee appointed by the Cal ifornia Senate to investigate conditions connected with the coming of consump tives to California from the eastern states, and the proi osed plan to estab lish a state institution for the care of such patients reports against the latter plan and advices legislation restricting such travel. The committee does not wish to encourage the coining of tuber c ilosis patients to California. The twentieth century thank offer ing of the American Methodists which was completed Jan. 1, amounted to $20,000,000. One million of this was a gift from a millionaire whose name is Kept secret. Of this fund, $8,000,000 will be used for the payment of church indebtedness; $1,500,000 will go for the establishment of a fund to pension aged and infirm ministers; nearly $8, -000,000 will be devoted to the educa tion of Methodist children and about $5,000,000 to hospital work. Ten yeais ago the Methodists had no hospitals; now they have 20 in the United States and several others under way. The American tour of Pietro Mas cagni and his Italian opera company came to a sudden close at Chicago last week with the cancellation of all dates. His financial difficulties culminated in an attachment of his personal effects by a local creditor. The composer will return to Italy as soon as he recovers from the attack of nervous prostration with which he is suffering. He is broken-hearted over his failure Bnd a financial loser of from $10,000 to $15, 000. Friday night he was arrested on a charge of embezzlement by his for mer manager, Richard Heard. The latter, discharged because Mascagni bad do further use for him, claims that his contract called for $5,000. After a serios of experiments, cover ing a period of more than five years, Dr. Bryon Coakley of Chicago a well known vivisectionist, has discovered that to administer local treatment to the heart is not the impossibility the world's scientists have always held it to be. By means of a fine, hollow golden needle, seven or eight inches long, which he terms an "organotone, " Dr. Coakley not only has been able to pierce the heuit without causing death, but to inject into it various fluids with out subjecting the patient to the slight est danger. Thus far his experiments have been confined to animals, but he is so sure of his ground that be will try to secure a human subject for de monstration; which he has been asked to make before the International Med ical Congress in Madrid, Spain, in 1903. Several further charges of alleged cruelty to natives in the Philippines are being investigated by the war lie partment. An attempt is being made by anti-imperialists to secure the free dom of Apolinario Mabini, Aguinal do's former secretary of state. It is re quested that he be released uncondi tionally from exile and captivity. Ma bini, a lawyer, paralyzed and physical ly helpless, has been regarded as one of the ablest leaders of the Luzon lebels. Such men as Senator Hoar hold him up as a man of the cleanest pa triotism, a man to be compared with Toussaint l'Ouverture, the victim of the first Napoleon. Before amnesty was declared, he utterly refused to yield allegiance to the United States and ac cept his liberty and when amnesty was declared he refused to accept it, on ac count of the taking of the oath of al legiance. Twenty-eight persons were killed and about 50 injured in a frightful rail road accident on the Grand Trunk road near Wanstead, Ont., Friday night A head-on collision took place between the Pacific Express No. 5 and an east bound freight The freight was to have taken the switch at Wanstead to allow the passenger train to pass, but the latter failed to receive order. The baggage and express cars telescoped into the smoker with appalling results. The scenes in the wreck were heart rending. Fire broke out but the pas sengers put it out by throwing snow on the flames with their hats and hands. The sufferings of the wound ed were increased by a blinding snow storm and zero weather. The telegraph operator who made the blunder is an old and reliable man who went in the service with the Great Western railway in 187L He claims that he followed the train despatcher's order as he re ceived it ft A ' A FROM ACROSS THE WATER. A BRIEF RESUME OF OLD WORLD NEWS GEORGE GOULD. WHO HAS A BIG RAILROAD FIGHT ON HAND. Mr. George Gould Is an aggressive fnctor in the world of high finance. Just now he Is engaged In a most Interesting railroad war with two power ful antagonists. In the east be Is at odds with the Pennsylvania railroad, and In the west he h.is to deal with E. U. Hnrrlmnn, president of the Union Taclfic and Southern Pacific lines. During some odd moments he recently arranged a deal by whlcn he leased his New York elevated railroad property to the new underground transit company. A fire at midnieht Tuesdav in the wholesale whiskey house of Bonnie Broa, Louisville, Ky., destroyed about $85,000 worth of whiskey and dam aged the building several hundred thousanfi dollars. The Frick Coko company in the Con nellsville. Pa., coke regions, granted their 20,000 employees a voluntary ad vance of 8 per-cent in wages, to take effect January L It means an addition al $1,000,000 in wages to the men. Representative educators in confer ence at Boston Monday decided to start a fund for a suitable memo rial to the life and work of the late Alice Freeman Palmer. Committees were chosen to arrange the details of the matter. Dr. John R. A. Croesman of Missouri, United States Minister to Monrovia, Liberia, has been recalled. Thisaction is the result of a scandal in the lega tion which resulted in a shooting af fray, Oct. 6, between the minister and Thomas J. R. Faulkner of Brooklyn, N. Y. Both men are negroes. Queen Emma, the virtual ruler of a group of South Sea Islands, and one of the half-dozen wealthiest women in the world, is in New York. She is accom panied by her husband and grandson. She has about $20,000,000 and is the lnwmaker for near!,; 200,000 islanders who, a score of years ago, were among the fiercest cannibals in the world. Her father was Jonas M. Coe, for 25 years American consul at Samoa, who married there a princess of the reign ing bouse. By an explosion of gas or gasoline Dec. 24 in the cellar of the Turf Ex changes Hot Springs, Ark., club house and pool room, the building was badly damaged and 30 people were injured, It) of them being in a serious condi tion. The pool room was crowded at the time with more than lMO persons. and a race at New Orleans was being called. 1 he cause of the explosion was the leaking of gasoline from a tank, the gases coming in contact with the lights of the pool room when a door was opened. Forty of the largest corporations of Pittsburg, Pa., and vicinity put out an aggregate of $0,310,000 in Christ mas gifts to employes. Workmen of Allegheny county received $18,(100.000. Crippled, aged and disabled employes were also remembered. Over a million dollars was distributed iu presents from Wall street. Judge Gray, of the anthracite strike commission, sent a Christmas box to little Andrew Chip pie, the Markle breaker boy whose pa thetic story before the commission brought tears to the eyes of the com missioners. Dr. D. E. Salmon, chief of the U. S. bureau of animal industry, who has charge of the exterminat ion of the foot and mouth disease in New England, says in regard to criticism of the meth od of killing of affected herds: There are only two courses to pursue. Either the diseased animals must all be killed off and the contagion stami.ed out im mediately thus relieving the state quar antine restrictions at the earliest pos sible moment, or we must sit down and watch the disease and try to prevent its spreading by quarantine. Lp to Mondav, 1300 head of cattle had been killed in Massachusetts. The cost to the state is $100,000 a day. The work is progressing satisfactorily. Dr. Adolf Lorenz, the famous sur geon, has returned to New York from Boston and is being lionized by many of bis countrymen and others. He says that the report that he has made $160, -000 in this country is incorrect, but that, as a matter of fact, in the four months he has been here be has earned just $30,000, his home practice being worth that It has been, he says, the physicians of the various cities who have profited by his visits. But it has been the crowning success of his life, ethically, oot materially, and he is triad he came. Only one case I of failure has been made, in an opera tion for hip trouble at theBosto chil dren's hospital, the subject being a boy beyond the age limit The Aus trian expert, however, succeeded in straightening the crippled limb mate riallv. Such unusual force was em ployed by Dr. Lorenz in breaking down the adductor muscles and in stretching the capsule and other mus cles, that one physician fainted and another was only saved from it by the entrance of fresh air. By this blood less method, be says, if the age limit is not exceeded, there is no danger of losing a case. The characteristics of the method are to reduce the parts to their normal relative position, keep them there a long time and subject them to weight bearing. Hague Arbitration for the Venezuelan Controversy-European governments interested in the Venezuelan controversy have agreed to submit the questions at issue to the tribunal at The Hague. The general understanding is that the Monroe doc trine shall not enter into the question of arbitration, on conditions which in clude cessation of the blockade and the return to Venezuela of the tleet seized by the allied powers. Prelimi nary to signing the protocol, Great Britain reduces her cash demands from $310,000 to $40,000 and Germany cuts hers down $10,000, but demands an apology for insults to the German flag. France has sent a note to Venezuela demanding fair treatment and claim ing right of priority to the collection of debts. Belgium's claims against Venezuela amount to $1,250,000. Italy accepts arbitration on condition that her claims shall rank with those of Great Britain and Germany. Active hostilities against President Castro have been resumed by Venezuelan rev olutionists. The armistice has just ex pired. The president held a New Year's re ception at the White House, following the same program as that inaugurated by President Adams. Cabinet mem bers and the diplomatic cori were re ceived from 11 a. m. until 11:20; then the judiciary, national and local, the Congress, district commissioners, army and navy, assistant secretaries and chiefs of bureaus and the patriotic so cieties. At 1 p. m. the general public was received. The beef trust has cornered the tur key mi ket in America and England and prices are higher than they have been for 13 years and as high as has been for ,'43 years. Although there are millions of pounds of dressed turkey in co'd storage houses in New York, Jerse? City and the West the prices de manded in New York Monday ranged from 18 to 22 cents a pound. It was about the same in 1889 and 1 cent higher in 18G9. It will continue at the same price for some time, but will go no h'gher, it is believed. The Catholics in every part of the world are preparing to show their de votion and fidelity to Pope Leo XIII at the end of the celebration of his silver jubilee next April by presenting to him an almost priceless jeel. This is a topaz weighing nearly four pounds, the largest in the world. It is now in the hands of skilled workmen in Rome, where it is being richly carved. It will contain when finished, a represen tation of Papal arms and of Christ breaking bread. The crown princess Louise of Sax ony, who lied from her husband and home last week, is in Geneva, Swit zerland. She fled with M. Andre Giron, the French tutor of her chil dren, and vows she will never return to the strict supervision of the Saxon court, as she fears being placed in an asylum. She will take immediate steps to secure a divorce, and, if suc cessful, will marry M. Giron. Her only regret is the separation from her children. With ber is ber brotner, Prince Leopold Ferdinand, and his sweetheart, the beautiful Viennese ac tress, Marie Adamovics. The whole party will, it is said, go to America as soon as possible, believing that to be the only country where it is really pos sible to start life afresh. The prince is estranged from his father on account of his love for Mme. Adam vies, who was expelled from Vienna, with 80,000 francs compensation, for refusing to give the prince up. The action of the recent legislature in deciding that Bare has no right to take the Jail brook water for indus trial purposes, gave an impetus to suits of individual water owners a gainst the city. A decree of perpetual injunction has just been granted, re straining the city from using the wa ter for polishing purposes. The matter is of very great importance to Barre. Death of England's Primate Arohbiihop of Canterbury-Great Oale in Denmark-Crop Failure In Finland-Rout of Imperial Forces in Morocco Disastrous Snow Blinard in Constantinople-Proposed Valuable Gift of Catholics to Pope.

Count Sano, a privy councilor and the founder of the Japan Red Cross society and the Fine Arts society, died in Tokio Dec. 7, He once represented Japan in Italy and Austro-Hungary, Hnd afterward was minister of finance. A woman in Sydney, Australia, re ceived a twelve word Christmas mes sage from friends on the Italian crui ser Carlo Alberto, 1,000 miles at sea on her way to Venezuela. The cruiser has been in constant communication with the Marconi station at Table Head, N. S. , since Sunday. The worst gale for many years vis ited Denmark Christmas night and the following morning and did enormous damage to property and shipping. Two boats were wrecked 011 Llsinore and eight persons were drowned. The Nor wegian bark Penry was wrecked and 11 men of the crew were drowned. A recent' snow blizzard has done much damage in Constantinople and environs. Roofs collapsed and many small craft in the harbor and in the Bosiiborus were sunk or dashed to pieces on the shores, causing fatalities. Others drifted seaward. The Black Sea fleet suffered in a similar manner. The Most Rev. Frederick Temple, Archbishop of Canterbury and primate of all England, died of oid age at Lon don Dec. 23. The aged primate broke down at the coronation of King Ed ward and later collapsed in the House of Lords at the end of a vigorous speech in support of the education bill. He has not left bis bed since. Co'onial Secretary Chamberlain and his wife , who left Portsmouth, Eng., Nov. 23, on board the armored cruiser Good Hope, landed at Durban, Natal, Thursday. They received a warm wel come from large crowds of people. Mr. Chamberlain made several long, strong, conci.'iatory speeches. He announced, incidi ntally, the acceptance of the Boers offer to fight in Somaliland. Najam-red-din, the Adda Mullah, Fakir of Swat, who succeeded in rous ing the frontier tribesmen of India against the British in 1898, causing several expeditions on a large scale, died at Peshawur, Dec. 22. He preached a "holy war" and by his fa naticism united Afridis and other Pa than tribes. He endeavored to pro- ! voke the Ameer of Afghanistan, but his power was broken down by the British troops and he fled into obscur ity. Austrian manufacturers have decid ed to advance the price of shoes 10 per cent, on account of the scarcity of leather. They claim this step is due to the extensive purchases of hides in the European markets by Americans who have practically cleaned out the continental stocks. Austrians also pro fess to see increased danger to the Eu ropean shoe industry from America, owing to the United States government refunding 99 per cent, of the tariff on the raw article when manufactured and exported. They complain that this pro cedure is too greatly facilitated by Secretary Shaw's order admitting proof of identity by simple declaration, in stead of by affidavit Official confirmation has been re ceived of the news, reported Dec 23, of the complete rout at Taza, Morocco, of the Moorish imperial army by rebels under the leadership of the pretender to the throne. The imperial forces abandoned their guns and ammunition, tents and beasts of burden and fled precipitately to Fez. December 20, 10.000 Sherefian troops, commanded by a brother of the sultan's minister of war, were about to concentrate and move against the pretender when the latter attacked them with large bodies of cavalry. The gates of Fez are closed, the population excited and bus iness suspended. It is said that 2000 of the sultan's soldiers were killed. The crop failure in Finland this year is the worst experienced in 50 years. It is due to the nearly continuous chil ly rains and early frost and is so com plete that dead birds nave been found by hundreds in the forests. The un ripe rye aud barley which the people are forced to use make a bitter bread which even the hungry horses refuse to eat. In some parts of the country bread is made from barley busks and straw mixed with a little flour. The peasants have expended all their money for flour and are consequently unable to buv clothing. It is estimated that 400.000 are now without flour. It is hoped that better means of communication will facilitate the work of relief and whole sale deaths from hunger and typhus may be prevented. The official opening of the Durbar, held to celebrate the accession of King E 'ward as emperor of India, was made at Delhi, India, Monday. The viceroy, Lord Curzon of Kedleston made bis state entry into the capital of the mo guls with a splendid pageant probably unparalleled in magnificence. Lord and Lady Curzon rode at the head on the state "grand Tusker," 12 feet high, the largest elephant in India. The Duke of Connaught, representing King Edward, followed. Then came the rul ing chiefs, 70 in all, the elephants formir g a line a quarter of a mile long. In the rear of the procession rode Gen eral Lord Kitchener, commander-in-chief in India, surrounded by the heads of provinces, with escorts of Indian cavalry and tribal leaders from beyond the border line.
