I FOR M'KE. Why He Gould Not Be Brigadier General of the Indiana Volunteers. GEJTE3ALS PKOM Cim UTE, Th« Role Adopted by the President and War Department—One Regiment Wait- lug for Order* at Camp Mount—Oil Company Invent* a Scheme to Beat the Antj- <Jae-Waat« Law-Collet* Estate Lltiga^ tion Compromised- Indianapolis, May 18.—It Is now thought that there is only a possibility that Will J, McKee will be appointed a brlfadicr general. In fact, all of his friends have about given up the fiffht. The opposition to him came from regular army men, who -were so strong that they won. C. S- Hernley, chairman of the Republican state central committee, went to Washington and called on President McKlnley in McKce's behalf. He •was told that no brigadier generals would be appointed from civil life in the militia, and telegraphed McKee, urging him to accept the appointment of colonel from the governor. The fact that McKee did not accept a colonelcy did not operate against him at Washington, Hernley says—in fact, he did not hear it mentioned. The president simply will cot make such appointments from civil life. One Regiment ut Camp Mount. At the main gate to Camp Mount yesterday morning,the fair grounds did not jive much evidence that it was still an army rendezvous, but as one enterec and went up the drive there were strong Indications on both right and left that either an army or a. cyclone had been there. Two soldiers stood 'guard at the g-ate. One of them had on a volunteer's blouse and carried a club in his hand— otherwise the soldiers could have easily been mistaken for civilians. In fact there is but one regiment there. Colonel Bennett's, the One Hundred and Fifty- ninth, which is waiting to be called to Washington. The men are anxious to go. Colonel Bennett said: "I have the Impression that we shall remain here •until we are fully equipped. Right now there is not a sun in the regiment." Reorganization of the Guard. Governor Mount said yesterday that nothing had been done toward re-forming- a. National Guard, and that those vrtio are asserting that they are organizing- one are acting without authority. The governor had reference to Lew Wallace. Jr., who is trying to get up a National Guard for Indiana. The state at present has no funds to pay for the organization, and besides the length of the war will have something to do with the matter. The feeling is that if the war ends shortly the volunteer army •will be converted Into the guard, as It •will be better fitted for state soldiers. At any rate, when the guard is reorganized greater care in accepting members will be exercised. COIXETT ESTATE LITIGATION. BulU Settled l»y Compromise, the Bstat* Paying ilOO.OOO Cash. Terre* Haute, Ind., May IS.—A telegram Is received here announcing the •compromise settlement of the suits ajalnst the Collett estate by the pay- Meat of JIOO.OW cash by the estate to tk« holders of the notes, amounting to nearly $500,000, which Collett had indorsed and which came due after his death, when the other signers had become insolvent. The notes were given in payment for the Chicago and Ohio River road, which D. J. Mackey as the head of the Peoria, Decatur and Evans- vine company bought. Collett made two bequeaths of $75,000 each, which have been held up pending the litigation of the past few years. One was to Rose Polytechnic Institute of this city and the other was for the establishment of an orphan's home in Vermilion county. It is expected the bequests will r.et about two-thirds of the amount named in the will. SCHEMK TO EVADE THK LAW. Xanhattnn Oil Com puny Gets Around an Indiana Statute. Hartford City, Ind.. May IS. — The Manhattan Oil company has discovered «. new scheme to evade the Indiana gas •waste laws. Instead of letting the gas blow oft in the air, it is piped under old boilers and burr.ed. State Gas Supervisor J. C. Leach was here a. few days ago and is highly incensed at the action of the company. He intends to secure a bond and enjoin the company from operating the well in question. The Manhattan company has become notorious for the utter disregard it has shown the gas wast* laws of the state. and the gas supervisor will prosecute thecompany tothefull extentof the law. The saving to the state as a result of the stopping of tne waste of gas is estimated at Jl.250,000 a year, which is one-fourth of the value of all the gas consumed in Indiana last year. Presbyterians »t TTlnoiiB Lake. TVinona Lake. Ind., May IS.—Everything; about Winona and Warsaw bespeak preparation for the coming: general assembly of the Presbyterian church. Although the first session of that convention does not open until Thursday, delegates from all portions of the world are arriving. Quite a number came Monday, many more yesterday.

Hawarden, May 18.—Late last evening all the servants of the Gladstone household were admitted to the sick room for a final farewell. They found Gladstone lying on his rightside, in deep sleep, as if dead. Each in turn touched his hand and left the room tearfully. Mrs. Gladstone remains at the patient's bedside. The attending physician said last evening: "It is a strange fact that when addressed in English Gladstone murmurs a few words in French and some times seems to be trying to pray in French, "He has had very serious attacks of the heart since yesterday evening and there has been altogether very rapid failure. He lies partly unconscious, is delirious and haswhatismedicallycalled changed-stroke in breathing. He is no longer in pain." TVashburn Does Not BelieTO It. Minneapolis, May Ig.-Ex-Senator W. D.

Corn— Ma> ~ their mines and defenses. Those words voice the opinions of the wbole navy as to one phase of Commodore George Dewey's character. As sailor, navigator, fighter, commander, he combines cool, accurate judgment and the exercise of the highest professional skill with the audacious bravery that has placed his recent achievement in the forefront in the glorious annals of the American navy. This great exploit _ consistent with a life's career of brave [ and honorable service for his country | npon the seas. J Born in Montpelier, Vt., in 1837, he was graSuated from the Naval academy at Annapolis in 1858, and went on the steam frigate Wabash, cruising _with the Mediterranean squadron until 1859. When Fort Snmter was fired on, Dewey was in Montpelier. Jnst one week later, Anril 19, 1861, he was commissioned lieutenant, and was assigned at once to the steam sloop Mississippi, which was to take part in the fierce fighting of the west gulf squadron. It was on -this vessel that he got his baptism of fire. Captain Melancthon Smith commanded the Mississippi, a side wheeler of 17 guns. This vessel was with Farragut in one of the hottest naval battles of the civil war, when the admiral's squadron forced an entrance into the mouth of the Mississippi river.running the gantlet of land batteries into .New Orleans and compelling the surrender of that city in April, 1862. Commodore Dewey's second smell of powder and smoke was the last fight in which the Mississippi engaged, in March, 1863, when the fleet tried to run the Confederate batteries at Port fiuron. Several of the ships reached the narrow part of the channel, where they met the land batteries almost mnz- zle to muzzle, being forced to beat a hasty retreat. The day was a foggy one, and amid the denseness of the fog and smoke of battle the Mississippi lost her bearings and grounded on shore. A quick snrvey of the surroundings showed*h«r officers that she had struck the shore almost in the mouth of the line of fortifications which were the strongest and best along the shore. Jn an instant the old ship was riddled with 250 shot. Her officers foresaw that she was a complete loss, and, setting fire to her, they took to small boats and made shore on the opposite side of the river. The officers and marines had hardly landed before the fire reached the boat's magazines, and a terrific explosion scattered her to fragments. The "History of Our Navy" thus describes some of the events of this occasion when young Dewey was learning his first lessons in naval warfare: "The Pensacola and the Mississippi steamed slowly, with their black hulls, at irregular intervals sheeting the air with lurid fire as they replied to the forts. Abreast of St. Philip, where the Confederate fire was hottest, they drew in so close that the gunners afloat and those ashore heartily cursed each other as they worked." On the Mississippi Dewey learned the same heartbreaking lesson that 25 years later he taught "the fighting Montijo" at Manilla—how to lose his ship. Admiral David D. Porter, in his "Naval History of the Civil War," thus describes the end of the Mississippi, whioh came on the river she was named after, while she was trying to run Port Hudson's powerful batteries: "The steamship Mississippi, Captain Melancthon Smith, followed in she wake of the Mouongahela, firing whenever her guns could be brought to bear. engines were backed with all the steam that oouid be put npon them, and the hacking vraa continned for 30 minutes, but without avail. It was now seen that it would be impossible to get the ship afloat. Captain Smith gave the order to spike the port battery and throw the guna overboard, but it was not done, for the enemy's fire was becoming so rapid and severe that the captain deemed it judicious to abandon the ship at once in order to save the lives of the men. While preparations were being made to destroy the ship the sick and the wounded were lowered into boats and conveyed ashore, while the men at the starboard battery continued to fight in splendid style, firing at every flash of the enemy's gnns. The small arms were thrown overboard and all possible damage was done to engine and everything else that might prove of use to the enemy. "The ship was first set on fire in the forward storeroom, -but three shots came through below her water line and put out the flames. She was tfian set fire in four places aft, and when the flames were well under way, so as to make her destruction certain, Captain Smith and his first lieutenant (George Dewey) left the ship, all the officers and crew having been landed before. The Mississippi was soon in a blaze fore and aft, and as she was now relieved of a great deal of weight—by the removal of her ctew and the destruction of her upper works —she floated off the bank and drifted down the river, much to the danger of the Union vessels below. But she passed without doing them any injury and at 6:30 o'clock blew up and went to the bottom." Lieutenant Dewey was the last to leave the ship. To keep her from falling into the enemy's hands he set fire to her himself and escaped on a cotton bale which was floating down.the river. Admiral Porter, commenting on this incident, said, "It is in such trying moments that men show of what metal they are made, and in this instance the metal was the best." The superior officers aboard the Mississippi conceived by his actions that Dewey was a man of steel nerves, and he was immediately assigned to the gunboat Agawam, then in the north Atlantic blockading squadron, where he again distinguished himself in two fierce battles—one in the attack made upon Fort Fisher, in December, 1864, and the other in January, 1865. This ended his fighting career for OOOOO HOME MIXED FERTILIZER. Items From the Ohio Station Afcont Fer- tilixintr Material* and Their Coit. For several years the Ohio station has been nsing a mixture of equal parts of tankage and acid phosphate, with ft small addition of muriate of potash (200 pounds to the ton), -with most satisfactory results, bat in order to make a more direct comparison of this mixture •with factory mixtures the station began a rear ago a comparative experiment in •which four brands of factory mixed fertilizers, bought direct from four of the oldest fertilizer manufacturing firms in the state, are being used side by side •with four home mixtures, made from the materials named, in such a way as to give approximately equal percentages of ammonia, total and available phosphoric acid and potash in the home mixtures to those claimed in the factory mixed brands. The general outcome of this test to date is that home mixtures of similar chemical composition, made from the materials named, have given an equal increase of crop when used on corn with standard brands of factory mixed fertilizers, and at a reduction of more than 40 per cent in cost. Acid phosphate is the basis of the phosphoric acid in practically all factory mixed fertilizers. It is a fossil bone, found in South Carolina, Florida and Tennessee, which is ground to a fine powder and mixed with sulphuric acid in order to make its phosphoric acid more easily soluble. The northern markets are supplied chiefly from Baltimore, where it may be bought at prices ranging from $10 per con for single sack lots down to §7.50 per ton in carloads in bulk for a grade analyzing 14 per cent soluble phosphoric acid. In the experiments made at the Ohio experiment station a pound of available phosphoric acid in acid phosphate has apparently been as effective as a pound of phosphoric acid in bone. Tankage is made at all the great slaughter houses. It contains both phosphoric acid and ammonia and is variable in quality. Different grades are classed as 6 and 35, 7 and 30, 8 and 20, 9 and 20, etc., meaning that they contain 6 per cent ammonia and 85 per cent bone phosphate or 7 per cent ammonia and 30 per cent bone phosphate, etc., the term bone phosphate meaning that combination of phosphoric acid and lime which is found in bone and of which about 46 per cent is phosphoric acid. The lower grades shade off below into raw bone, which might be called a 5 and 50 tankage, and above into dried blood, which contains 10 to 14 per cent ammonia with 2 or 3 per cent or only a trace of phosphoric acid. A 7 and 30 tankage has been sold in Cleveland for several years at the uniform price of $17 per ton in single sacks or carloads. The latest quotations in Chicago range from $12.50 per ton for 6 and 85 tankage up to $15.50 for 9 and THE TiLK OP CITI. It's «f Interest U Oar Readers Bocauw It Refers to Logaupwrt Pestle.

The first command which he received was in 1870, when he was placed in command of the Narragansect, then doing special duty. He later became commander and was retained on the Narra- gansbtt to make a snrvey of the Pacific. In 1876 he was made a lighthouse inspector and was later secretary of the board. He -was nest assigned to the command of the Juniata, in the Asiatic squadron, and in September, 1884, was promoted to a captaincy and placed aboard the Dolphin, one of the four boats which formed the original white squadron. The following year he was sent to the flagship Pensacola of the European squadron, where he remained until 1888, becoming chief of the bnreau of equipment and recruiting, with the rank of commodore. He held this position until 1898, when he was made a member of the lighthouse board, receiving his commission as commodore on Feb. 28, 1896, at the same time becoming president of the board of inspection and survey, which place ha held until put in command of the Asiatic squadron, in January of this year.
