Nov. 5,-Slxteen million dollars will be necessary to complete tho engineering work of fortifications of the seacoasts of the United States under the plans of the Endicott board, according- to the report of Brigadier General Alexander MacKensle, chief of engineers. There has already been appropriated for this pur pose $28,6!3,iM. Permanent projects at thirty-one different points have been adopted and most of thnm are well under way. These points are: Frenchman bay, Maine; Penobscot river, Maine; Kennebec river, Maine; Portland, Maine; Portsmouth, N. H.; Boston, Maes.; New Bedford, Mass. ; Narragansett bay, K. I.; eastern entrance to Long Island sound. New Tork, N. Y.;. Delaware river, Balti more, Md.; 'Washington, D. C; Hampton Roads, Va.; entrance to Chesapeake bay, at Cape Henry;. Cape Fear river, N.

Fla.; Pensacola, Kla.; Mobile, Ala,; New Orleans, La.; Gal veston, Tex.; San Diego, Cal.; Ban Fran cisco, Cal.; Columbia river, Oregon and Washington: Puget Sound, Wash.; Lake Champlaln, at the head of the great lakes. The defense of the great lakes and the St. Lawrence river Is under consideration. The estimate for the completion for these fortifications doea not contemplate any thing more tflan the projects outlined by the Endicott board. Modern appliances and additional projects which may be adopted by the Taft board appointed last summer, and the fortifications of the Insu lar possessions may Increase the estimates when additional work Is approved by con gress. It la estimated that 4.2B3.3S4 will be required to put into execution by the en gineering department the schemes of the artillery and signal corps for fire control of the sea. coast defenses. The report says: . Likely to Exceed Estimates. "While the genera principles of the fire control system have been satisfactorily de termined and adopted." the actual details on "Which costs largely depend are still In a 'condition of experimental development , by the artillery, and it is anticipated that the cost of actual construction will probably largely exceed the above sum when such development is complete." It Is stated that the reconstruction of the works destroyed by the storm of 1J00 at, Gal- i vestoa are nearly completed, but the bar racks . and quarters and other post build- j Ing, which must be located at Forts Travis and Ban Jacinto, are unprotected, as well as range finder stations and other engineer accessories. Very heavy sea walls and ex tensive sa:;d filling will be essential to making protection complete at those points. Work has been progressing on the fortifi cations for the defenses of Manila bay and Huhig bay, Philippine islands, and on the ' purchase of sites for fortifications in Hawaii. Negotiations have been continued for the acquisition of one site at the eastern en trance to Long Island sound and of a tract at Mobile, Ala. A tract on the Kennebec river, : Maine; one near Charleston, 8. C, and on the Columbia river, Narra sunset t bay and Puget sound were acquired dur ing the year. The total estimates for forti fication works under the engineer depart ment for the fiscal year 1907 amount to U. 4:4,153, divided as follows: Construction of gun and mortar batteries, $4,000,009; moder nising) older emplacements, $492,500; sites for fortifications under sea coast defenses, $500, ono; searchlights for harbor defenses, $500. 000; protection, preservation and repair of fortifications, $000,000; preparation of plans for fortifications, $6,000; supplies for sea coast defenses, $40,000; sea walls and em bankments, $215,000; sea walls, defenses of Galveston, Tex., $1,433,853; casements, gal leries, etc., for submarine mines, $540,700; preservations and repair of torpedo struc tures, $50,000.

BOSTON, Mass., Nov. 5. -What is confi dently believed to be the head of Susanna A. Geary, the dress suit case victim, was recovered In a lent her handbag from the bottom of the harbor today. It was dragged loathe surface very near the point where Louis W. 'Crawford and William Howard, who have confessed to disposing of the dismembered body of the girl, said they dropped It from' the ste-n of an east Boston ferryboat. The head completes the bo " f the girl. The trunk was found on 8c; ,ber II and the limbs were picked up C er ?7. The leather bag In whirh the ( had been placed, together with thlr pounds of loose shot, did not move i rently from the place where It sank. ' S iwig with Its contents was taken to iward street undertaking establlehmen VI will be viewed by Medical Exan Francis A. Harris tomorrow. The h as In a good state of preservation ant is thought by the police thst It will 'nv Vendlly recog nized as that of Miss Geary. The police today continued the search for Mary S. Dean, who is said to have had charge of the homo In which Miss Geary died after being removed from the Tre mont street resort. The hunt for the woman was without result and it Is be lieved that she left the rlty as soon as she learned of the arrest of Crawford and Howard Crawford and Howard will prob ably remain In New York for several dny.i until the necessary papers for their extra dition are approved by Governor HlKglns. Morris Nathan, the lover of Miss Geary, will be arraigned in court tomorrow on n charge of abortion. Dr. Percy D. Mcl.eod. who was arrested In the Bark Bay district on Friday for al leged complicity in the case, left town today for a few days. He Is under bonds of $20,000. The police Intimate that they have evi dence to show that other similar cases have occurred In this city and that the bodies of several of the victims have been disposed of secretly. When asked tonight concerning the al leged confessions of Louis J. Crawford and William Howard, the New York prisoners. Chief William B. Wntts of the Boston Bureau of Criminal Investigation, who has returned from that city, said: "All I will say is that the confession of these two men Is the most startling and sensational story I have ever heard. I do not like to think of It. It Is a terrible story and the most remarkable tale I ever heard In all my years o police service." The New York prisoners, Morris Nathan, who was brought here from Pittsburg, and Dr. Percy D. McLeod, who was arrested In Boston Friday, are all charged with the same crime, that of abortion. GIBBONS TALKS0N HONESTY Gives Promoters of stock Jobbing; Scheme Some Hard Raps, BALTIMORE, Nov. 5. Cardinal Gibbons preached at the cathedral today on probity In business, taking as his text,. "Pay What Thou Oweat.",e said in part: t There is a species of dishonest v which Is conducted on a larger scale. I allude to the Iniquity of watering stock and floating It on the market, of Inflating stocks and bonds and giving them a fictitious value. This sin IS the more odious, as It Is not the result of a sudden Impulse of temptation, but is per petrated in cold blood by sharpwltted men who court the esteem of their fellow cltl xens. They use all kinds of arguments to catch the unwary In their tolls and inflict untold misery on a too confiding com munity, and not infrequently widows and orphans are the victims of this species of fraud. I might also allude here to dishonest presidents and cashiers of banks and busi ness house clerks. Their number, thank God, Is very small compared with the army of loyal and upright officials. These unfaithful officers yield to tho criminal desire of growing suddenly rich. They secretly appropriate the funds of the Institution In which they are employed with the vague in' ntlon of restoring them. They gamble In knocks and other securities, hoping to realise large profits. Their first venture Is a failure. They cast the die again and again, each time staking larger sums with the same result, till they have gone down the stream of speculation too far to retrace their steps and hide their In iquity. They Involve themselves In irre parable ruin arid degradation. All the waters of the Mississippi could not blot out the stain. A name which before was mentioned with honor Is now whispered with bated breath or covered with' the charity of silence. The last chapter In their sad history is usually suicide, exile or the penitentiary. TWO SHOT BY INSANE MAN Sheriff aad Posse Vnable ta Catch Perpetrator of the Affair. HELENA, Mont., Nov. 5. A. K.

Vale Slate mint on the ( ampaign, REPUBLICANS CONFIDENT OF - SUCCESS Democrats Indicate They Will Be Satisfied If Majority Is Less Than That Received by Roosevelt. (From a Staff Correspondent.) LINCOLN, Neb., Nov. 6 (Special) Chairman Warner, of the republican state committee, and Chairman Allen, of the democratic state committee, have issued their final statements concerning the cam paign and It all now rests with tne voters. As has been stated a number of times, the democrats this year have been making an organisation for the contest of next year and this Is shown by the statement of Mr. Allen. If Judge Let ton falls to get as large a plurality as President Roosevelt the democrats- will claim a victory, so It will be up to the republicans to give hlin the Roosevelt vote. Chairman Warner's Statement. Chairman Warner, of course, expects success for the republican candidates with the usual republican majority. The vote this year, both chairmen agree, will be much lighter than the vote of a year ago. Chairman Warner, as a last 'statement to the voters, haa this to say: The state Is safely republican. But nevertheless every republican enoitld vote. Republicanism is no less popular this year than last, but many who are busy will neglect their duty as voters, and the total will be considerably less than Inst ypar. The opposition Is worse off In that respect than we ar, so we will maintain our rela tive miijorlty. based upon the average voted for the state ticket last year. The people have confidence In the republican party, and that confidence will be evidenced by the vote on Tuesday. Our candidates snd platform are heartily approved in every precinct in the state. There Is no disaffec tion on the state ticket anywhere. The republican majority can be reduced only by overconlidence and neglect of republi cans. The opposition, through their committee, are explaining what their platform means and what their candidates stand for. A republican platform needs no explanation from the committee, nor Is It necessary to snv what our candidates will do if elected. The position of the party has not changed since the platform was adopted, and the party means what lv said then. The can didates are as popular and clean as any ever nominated by any party, and stand upon the platform. If republicans do their duly by coming out, our majority will be a splendid one. Statement by Democrats. Chairman Tom Allen of the democratlo state committee Issued the following state ment: The campaign Just closed haa been list less and quiet. There have been no meet ings to speak of; in fact. It-would have been impossible to arouse much enthusi asm this year. This does not mean that the people are Indifferent or will refrain from voting, but on the contrary It means that they have their minds made up and are ready to vote. The den ocratlc com mittee has been In touch with public senti ment and I am sure our party will make large gains in every section of the state. The people doubt the sincerity of the re publican convention when it declared against the pass evil. The record of the last legislature is too recent to escape their . notice, and, while the election this year means little from the viewpoint of getting tho offices, It mean much as a preliminary to the- contest tht Is coming next year I do not care to Indulge li, any prophecy about majorities, but yoy may say it will not be at all surprising If the plurality of nearly 100,000 for Roosevelt last year la changed to a democratlo ma jority this year. The recent Insurance Investigation has confirmed the charge heretofore made by those In a position to know that republican, success In the past haa been due to the enormous campaign fund contributed . by the trusts, corporations and Insurance com panies. The people of this state are won dering now If any of these funds have been spent here to elect republican officials or to keep the legislature from doing Its duty. Some potent Influence was at work dur ing the last session and the people are curious to know what It was. With the people thinking about these things it would not be strange If they de manded a change. Another thing tual will help the democratic ticket Is the feeling that the supreme court ahould be a non partisan court, and in order to keep It an It will be necesaary to elect Judge Hastings. I am confident of success. The vote will be very light, probably not exceeding "0 per cent of the vote of last year. Confereace of Educators.

TEACHERS WANT MORE PAY Omaha School Mi'sui Are liking for Higher Wiget, PETITION GOES Tu BOARD 1HIS EVENING renditions Different orr Thaa When Present Srhertale Was Adopted Fourteen Years Ago Fixing Teachers' Salaries. Omaha school teachers have concluded that they nre entitled to better wages, and have decided to ask the Omaha Boaid of Education to advance the present scale. When the board meets tonight It will have before It a petition asking that the pay of all teachers In the grade schools below the principals be Increased. This affects about 3 teacher. In their petition, which has been prepured with great care, the teacher set forth their case at length and go Into considerable de tail. It is explained that the rate of pay for teachers, with its maximum of $70 per month, was adopted some fourteen years i ago, nml thst since that time all conditions have undergone a great change. The cost of living has advanced In all directions, wages in all other lines have advanced and the teachers have had no share In the gen eral prosperity that haa been enjoyed bv the community otherwise. In making their calculations the teachers have extended their salary over the twelve months of the year. Instead of the tn months tor which they are emrloyed, snd make comparisons to show that the grade teachers and klnder gartners are the poorest paid of all the city employes. A klndergnrtner st $40 per month for the ten months gets $40f) per year, snd this distributed over twelvemonths amounts to $3J. per month, which is less than the city pays for laborers on the streets. All sorts of appointees around the city halt and at the courthouse draw bigger pay than the school teacher. Modern methods of education . demand more of the teacher's time and more Is ex pected of her than at the time when the present rate of pay was fixed by the school board. The petition carries with it many Illustrations of the condltlona. argues with foi-i why the teachers should haw more money. An organltatlon exists-among the schoolma'ams, the object of which Is to press this matter. IRVINE NOW A GREEK PRIEST Is Attached to New York Cathedral to Ibor Among F.ngllsh Speaking People. NEW YORK. Nov. B.-WHh much cere mony Rev. Ingram N. W."

Mary's . day, one of . the principal saint days fit the Russian church. Dr. Irvine having been previously received as a com municant of the Greek church, after he had been ' refused a rehearing of his case by the authorities of the Episcopal church; Archbishop Tikhon decided that as he had come to tho Greek church with the degree of doctor of divinity, his application for ordination as a priest could not be refused under the canonical-law of the church. The ceremony today began with the cele bration of the usual Sunday high mass and litany. Dr. Irvine made his appear ance with the other clergy clad In the white silken and gold embroidered cas sock of a deacon of the church. Arch bishop Tikhon was the celebrant of the mass. After reading the osth, Dr. Irvine was lead three times around the pulpit, kneel ing, In one corner with the other priests and kissing various Ikons. After- retiring within the chancel. Dr. Irvine came for ward clad In the blue and white vestments of a Greek priest. Archbishop Hotovltsky, first in the Slavonic tongue and later in English, stated that Dr. Irvine had been ordained a priest of the church and asked for the prayers of all to bless him In his new work, and especially the prayers of the English speaking people. The newly or dained priest then . made a short address in English. . stating he had come te the Greek church, taking as his special mis sion the unification of all churches, whether Protestant, Greek or Roman. To that end he said he should ever work and pray.

A glorious career for President Roosevelt as president of Harvard university after he leaves the White House was predlctod yeaterday by Henry Watterson, the star-eyed apostle from Louisville. " . Mr. Watterson came In during the after noon from Wisconsin, where he has been lecturing, and went to the Auditorium An nexto rest, he said. He would not talk politics. "President Roosevelt," said he, when urged, "will round out his career, after leaving the White House, as president of Harvard university. It will be a fitting and glorious termination of his useful life. He will be the greatest figure in the coun try as 'the head of the university." It was suggested that Mr. Roosevelt might be renominated, despite his decision not to accept a second term; that In some circles It had been predicted that the democratic party would choose htm as their standard bearer. "Stuff," replied Colonel Watterson. "Roosevelt wouldn't touch a second term with a forty-foot pole.

CONDITIONS AT ST. PETERSBURG QUIET Blgr nemoustratloa Planned let Funeral of "Mar tyre" Is Abaa doned aad Sere-tees Held la Churches. ODESSA, Nov. 6 A tout- or the city and part of the suburbs today found all quiet Whole rows of shops that were pillaged have been boarded up. The poorer Jewish quarters suffered worst and the principal streets, with few exceptions, were un touched. Russian shops sre marked with crosses painted on the shutters and the private houses with ikons so as to protect them from the mobs. Peasants armed with knives and scythes tried to enter tho city Saturday to loot the place, but were driven back by the soldiers. The casualties in Saturday's disturbance exceed 140 and those of . the . preceding three days which have been verified num ber 6,no. The plundering continued early this morning In the outlying districts but today the city was relatively calm, though the population Is still anxious. The latest accounts of the devastation In the Jewish quarter add horror to the situation. Besides numerous mills, the bakeries, shops and nearly 000 homes have been destroyed. The Jews in every In stance were treated with revolting bar barity. Heads were battered with ham-, mers, nails were driven Into the bodies, eyes gouged out and ears severed. Many bodies were disemboweled and' In some raaea petroleum was poured over the sick, found hiding in cellars, and they were burned to death. It is alleged that. the police and the sol diers everywhere marched at the head of mobs Inciting them to destroy the Jews by crying: "The Jews have killed our em- -peror." and similar expressions. While the mobs were engaged in the slaughter the soldiers busted themselves pillaging the cash and Jewels, leaving the household goods to the mobs. The owners of many houses got rid of the bandits by payment of a ransom to the police. The police prevented anyone from arresting the looters and preevnted also the Red Cross worker from aiding the-wounded, actually filing upon those engaged in this work. A band of students removed much of the stolen property to the university, while they also took twelve dead bodies of anti Jewish demonstrators, who relative to day besieged the university claiming the corpw a and demanding tbe release of those demonstrators who were confined in the university. They threatened btherwise to burn the university snd kill the professor. ' Measures were thereupon .taken to trans fer these prisoners to the regular prison. ' tnlet Sunday at Capital. ST. PETERSBURG, Nov. 5. Sunday hap pily passed in 8t. Petersburg without die orders or bloodshed. The social democrats and revolutionists had planned a mammoth demonstration ' in connection with the funerals of those killed in last Week's riots and it was intended to form gigantic pro cessions representing the various ' Indus trial organisations In the suburbs and flying red flags bear the bodies . of the "martyrs" in state through the center .of the city. These processions were to unite at the Kaxan cathedral, where the pa slons of the crowd might be fired by revo lutionary orators. Late last night, how ever, when It became known that General Trepoff would not permit this big demon stration, threatening disorder, and thtt the mayor had issued a proclamation, say ing that the streets were no place for airing political grievances, the socialist leaders called off their pluns, declaring that they feared "this demonstration of the people was marked for slaughter, for which they were not prepared at present. The people will give battle when ready, not when Tre poff wants it." Accordingly the funerals were held in private and workmen, attended - memorial services in the various mills. Although the demonstration was formally abandoned, tens of thousands of spectators flocked to the Nevsky prospect The broad thorough fare In front of the Kaxan cathedral was blocked by a great crowd of people, ' but theie was no attempt at disorders and bo attempts to use the squadrons of hussars, Coasacks and culrrasslers held In reserve In the side streets. Expect ta Coatlaae Fight. . The revolutionary leaders here anticipate a period of comparative quiet and epeak of the great strike simply as a "maneuver" which forced autocracy to make conces sions. "We have not any intention of end ing the fight now," said one of tbem today, "but will organise and arm the people for the final struggle. We expect nothing from bureaucracy and only by a popular up rising can we achieve our aim, whlcb -ia a constituent assembly." , - While the news received from the provinces indicates that something like normal conditions are being re-established, the indications in Odessa, tho Baltics and other p'.aces'ln tho south, where tbe out rages have generally taken an an 1 1-Jew is U nature, continue. i Thomas E. Hoenan, American consul, at Odcssu, has sent a telegram to the Ameri can embassy saying that since Tuesday I the bloody attacks upon the Jew have continued, and that he estimates the num ber killed In thousands. Artillery, be says, lias been employed tu suppress the rioting, and the Jews have fired from windows upon the troops In the j streets. Fortunately, he adds, thus far American Interests are unaffected. Demonstrations la Polaad. WARSAW, , Nov. 8. Great patriotic demonstrations were held in tbe cities to day by crowds estimated at 200,0u0 per sons. Procession 1 headed by clergy at)d singing "God save Poland," paraded the principal streets, which were elaborately decorated. Tho balconies and windows of the houses were rilled with spectator. A cltisen guaid kepi exemplary order and t!.e military, massed in the side street, had no occasion lo interfere. An attempt by the Rustdun loyalists to organise a procession was a complete failure, barely gvu p.-1'Hons taklrg pait In it.
