8 4 YATES GREETS MANY CALLERS. Spends Busy Day in Chicago Conferring with State Politicians. TALK OF THE ASSEMBLY. Sherman Committee Sees Executive and Senators Discuss Organization. BUSSE OFFER IS REJECTED. Richard Yates, the Governor-elect. spent yesterday in Chicago in as busy a fashion as if he had been a Christmas shopper. He saw many politicians. and listened in patience to all of them. The first caller of the morning was 'William Lorimer, the last of the afternoon was Henry L. Hertz. Judge Hanecy called at his hotel, and chatted with him for a time. William H. Harper, who has been mentioned as a possibility for Railroad and Warehouse Commissioner. paid his respects. Collector Coyne called, as did Daniel Hogan and others from out in the Sherman Committee Visits Yates. One incident of the day was the visit of the so-called " Sherman committee." composed of friends of L. Y. Sherman. the candidate for Speaker of the House. The committee was composed of Representative Rankin. chairman, and Representatives Scrogin, Brown, Bundy, McCulloch, Bush, Beitler. and Christian. This meeting was held in an upper room of the Annex. and with Mr. Yates at the time were Chairman Rowe of the State Central committee; James McKinney, chairman of the Executive committee; Mr. Russell and Mr. French of Jacksonville. and Mr. Neville of Bloomington The committee entered Mr. Yates room at the appointed time, 2 p. tri.. and " got down to business " at once. Chairman Rankin said: " Judge Yates. we come to you as your friends. representing a large majority of the Republican members of the Forty-second General Assembly, and wish to assure you of our sincere and cordial support of your administration. We wish to emphasize this statement. for the reason that wholly incorrect reports have gone out to the public. Under no circumstances would we ally ourselves with any organization unfriendly to, or not entirely in accord with, your administration. We are favorable to Sherman for Speaker, and we are authorized to assure you of his friendship and cordial cooperation In all legislative matters for the good of the party and the State. I wish to assure you that you can regard us as your friends under all circumstances, and that our constant endeavor shall be to aid you in making your administration one of the best the State ever had. which we are confident it will be." Judge Yates said in reply that he appreciated the call and the views expressed; that as far as the Speakership was concerned. he would not say anything further than that he had said in a statement he gave out to the press a day or two after his return from the West. A general handshaking followed. and the incident was closed, as the diplomats would say. Large Meeting of Sherman Men. Shortly after that. forty-two Sherman men gathered in H. C. Beitler's office at the Kedzie Building. Twenty-two others were represented by telegrams and letters. assuring the assemblage of their support of Sherman for the Speakership. Ten of the men present were from Cook County. There were in the room at that time more than a majority of the men who will be in the Republican House caucus. with twenty more out in the country in accord with them. Chairman Rankin -eported to the assemblage what had occurred over in Judge Yates' apartments. Every man present renewed his allegiance to Sherman. A. J. Semen of McLean presided. with John Chamberlin of Lebanon as Secretary. The .tneeting adjourned to meet in Springfield on Jan. S. It was learned that Congressman Lorimer call on Mr. Yates, early in the day, resulted in no definite requests or promises. They talked together for five minutes. Mr. Lorimer did not ask Judge Yates for any offices for any of his friends. the talk being entirely impersonal. It by no means follows that Mr. Lorimer will not want a railroad commissioner, a grain inspector. and 9 park board or two, privileges he enjoyed under Governor Tanner, but he said nothing about them during his interview with Judge Yates. Judge Hanecy's audience with Judge Yates lasted for a considerable time. Isaac Miller Hamilten and Senator Corbus Gardner called soon afterward. The call of Daniel Hogan of Mound City was for the purpose of learning where he stood. He shortly afterward was followed by Dr. Bennett, Superintendent of the Insane Asylum at Anna, who wishes retention in office. A delegation of railroad men filed indorsements for J. W. Callahan. President of the Railroad Employes league, whom they wish appointed on the Railroad and Warehouse commission. Judge Yates had little talks with Representatives Lyon, Cole, and Brown. Talk All on Line of Harmony. But the chat of the day was all along the Iine of harmony. Mr. Yates is insisting now that the warring factions in the Senate shall settle their differences among them-elves. and avoid precipitating an unseemly brawl. Various propositions are being made from one side to the other, looking toward an adjustment on a friendly basis of the patronage and the committeeships. This work was started in Springfield ten days ago. Emissaries from the Dunlap-Putnam party went over to the Busse faction with a proposition. but nothing has been accomplished toward a settlement. Busse-Campbell Plan Rejected. 0- - Senator Mc Kinzie. representing the Busse-Campbell side. met the leaders of the Dunlap-Putnam combination with a proposition that the thirty-two Republican members of the upper branch get together in caucus. As nearly as could be ascertained the inducements offered were that the Dunlap-Putnam people could have the naming of the President pro tem. of the Senate, the secretary, the Sergeant-at-Arms, the Postmistress. and her assistant; that a committee of live. comprising three Senators from the Busse-Campbell combine and two from the Dunlap-Putnam camp. be chosen to make up the standing committees of the Senate. The proposition was rejected. According to Senator Dunlap the proposal to give his side minority representation on this committee was strongly opposed by every Senator enlisted under the anti-BusseCampbell banner. - We fail." tie continued. to discover anything in the protocol that would materially benefit us. The basis on which we are asked to harmonize is manifestly unfair. NS-hi le the positions placed at our disposal are the most Important ones, at the same time they amount to nothing as compared with the chairmanships and the control of the big standing committees." The result of this first move for united and harmonious action leaves the whole matter of Senate organization just where it. has been during the last three weeks. Yates Recovered from Illness. Judge Yates said last night he had had a pleasant day. It was true he had been busy. but he said the day had not been marred by any disagreeable incident. He has entirely recovered from the indisposition which prevented him from coming to Chicago last Saturday. As to his appointments . nobody knows at what time after his inauguration they will begin to come. Aside from his private secretary the first selections of any note will be those of his military fam:ly. who mu,t prepare themselves v,-Ith uniforms. etc., for the trip to Washington when President McKinley is inaugurated. The Impression among those who came from the State outside of Cook County was I that Governor-elect Yates would give much -MRS. A. BECK, EIGHTH VICTIM OF EXPLOSION. TO CUT COUNTY SkLARIES MEN MENTIONED FOR MAYORALTY IN EVANSTON While on the last too miles of her wedding trip Mrs. August Beck of Milwaukee received injuries in the Northwestern boiler explosion on Dec. 3 which caused her death at the Policlinic Hospital on Friday evening. Mrs. Beck was the eighth person to die as a result of the accident. She was formerly Miss triltlein, being the daughter of Charles Uihlein, one of the firm of Uihlein Bros., owners of the Schlitz Brewing company, Milwaukee. The accident which caused the death of Mrs. Beck was the result of an explosion of a boiler in the lighting and heating plant of the Northwestern railway, Kinzie and Kingsbury streets. The explosion took place just as the Milwaukee express was passing the power-house. Mrs. Beck, accompanied by her husband, was seated in the parlor car along with a number of other passengers. Pieces of the boiler and power-house were blown against the car, crushing its sides, maiming many of its occupants. Mrs. Beck was severely injured, and was removed to the Policlinic Hospital, where she died. Her husband remained with her constantly from the time of the accident. A reception had been planned to greet the returning couple, and a number of the friends of the newly wedded pair were on their way to met them at the Milwaukee station when the accident took place. of his time and attention to completing the slate of appointments. The gossip made places for several of the new Chief Executive's closest friends. It was given out unofficially that Chairman Rowe of the State committee can select one of four placesSuperintendent of Insurance, . attorney for the Railway and Warehouse commission, Internal Revenue Collector for the Springfield district as successor to Yates, and chairman of the State-Board of Pardons. Executive Chairman James :McKinney is said to be slated for Railway and Warehouse Commissioner, James Neville of Bloomington to be attorney for the board, A. L. French of Morgan County treasurer for some big State institutian, Walter Fieldhouse State Grain Inspector, and Fred Sterling of Rockford private secretary to the Governor. R. M. Patterson is said to be in line for an important Cabinet position. He wants, to succeed Colonel Van Cleave as Insurance Superintendent. E. J. Hawley. chief clerk in the Grain office, hopes to be retained. Dr. John R. Neely, brother of Judge Neely, would like to be Superintendent of the Insane Asylum at Elgin. Judge R. W. S. Wheat ly of Perry County is mentioned in connection with one of the commissionerships of the Rail-way and Warehouse board. Joseph Bidwill hopes to be reappointed. Rudolph C. lAebrecht is after the secretaryship of the Lincoln Park board. Strong influences are at work to secure the reappointment of E. J. Murphy as warden of the penitentiary at Joliet, and the selection of Buck Messick for warden of the prison at Chester. Perry A. Hull would like an extension of his term as attorney of the Insurance department. Dorsey Patten 1 wants the office of Pure Food Commissioner.

JAIL FOR DIPLOMA MEL JA1VIES ARMSTRONG TO SERVE ONE YEAR AND PAY S300. President of the Metropolitan Medical College Sent to the Du Page County Lockup for Using Mails to Defraud In Selling SheepskinsJudge Kohlsaat Overrules Motion for New Trial Cases of Other Defendants to Passed Upon at Next Term of Court. Haying overruled a motion for a new trial Judge Kohlsaat, in the United States District Court yesterday, imposed a sentence of One year in tilt Du Page County Jail and a fine of $500 on James Armstrong, President of the Metropolitan Medical College. The defendant was convicted recently of using the mails to defraud in connection with a " diploma mill." Sentence against Thomas Armstrong. who was convicted, and John H. Randall. who pleaded guilty to the same offense, will be passed at the next term of court in March. James Armstrong made a hard fight to the end through his attorneys. and he now threatens to prolong the legal battle in the hither federal courts. It is possible that his brother, Thomas. and Randall, will get off with a slight sentence, if they are to be punished at all. The Armstrongs first began business in 1S95 with the Illinois Health University. This was a " diploma mill " on a small scale, and the health authorities soon closed the doors of the bogus institution. Then the charter for the Independent Medical College was used, and the Armstrong-s set up-their offices in the People's Institute Building on the West Side. The charter of this college was revoked a few years ago. The same kind of " graduating " work was continued under the name of theMetropolltan Medical College, although a restraining order was issued in the State court against the officials doing business under this charter. TALKING OF HITT'S CANDIDACY. Men Interested in the Senatorial Contest Find It Chief Subject of Interest. Congressman Robert R. Hitt's candidacy for United States Senator was the principal subject of discussion yesterday in the circle given up to the Senatorial contest. The Congressman's campaign managers did not open headquarters for him. Homer Aspinvvall, chief spokesman. said nothing of that sort would be done until Mr. Hitt returned from Washington next Saturday. Mr. Aspinwall took a room at the Great Northern, and the visiting legislators found him there ready to supply them with all the information they wanted regarding the candidate and his supporters. Governor Tanner was the only aspirant on the ground, and he said in the evening that the day had been the busiest one of his campaign. Senattr Culloms headquarters were thronged also, though the Senator was known to be absent. " The situation In Congressman Ifitts district. said one of Mr. Cullom's chief supporters. " is such that the announoement of his candidacy does not show that he has any particular elements of strength this tim. Representatives Hunter and Hughes and Eenator Andrus declared today that they are just as strong for Cullom now as they were before Mr. Hitt entered the race. Some of the other members in that district counted on to support Hitt we know are friendly to Cullom." Charges were made that Governor Tanner had sent for several members-elect of th,. lower House who are against him and that in every instance he urged them to fall in line for Hitt. The Governor declared that the report was not true. CHEAPER GAS FOR EVANSTON. Northwestern Company Cuts Price from 1.75 to 1.25 to Meet Competition. The Northwestern Gaslight and Coke company announced a reduction yesterday in the price of lighting gas from f1.75 per 1.000 feet to LIZ. The reduction was made, it Is said, In order to meet competition. Since the Yar Yan company entered the tield there has been Intense competition between the three lighting companies in Evanston. The cut makes the price of fuel and illuminating gas the same. Hoy of 13 Stabbed Durina Fight.

President Hanberg Says He Is in Favor of Reducing His Own Pay and That of the Commissioners $1,000 a Year .Members of the Board Want to Slash An Along the Line from the Highest to the LowestChanges in the Coroner's (Mice. President Hanberg of the County board and several commissioners are in favor of cutting the ealat-ies of the members along with thäse of all employes of the county in order to meet the deficit in the county finances. The President says the salaries of members of the board should be cut at least $1.000 each. That would make his pay t 5,000 a year and that of the cemmissioners $3,000. The expenses of the county for the incoming year have to be cut down by $340,000 on account of the indebtedness and the reduction in the taxes. Some of the commissioners are in favor of cutting ftll salaries, from those of members .of the Board of Review down to those of scrubwomen. " If we are to cut our expenses down to our income," he said, " we must begin to economize, and I think that we should start with the salaries drawn by members of the board. I am perfectly willing to have my salary reduced $1,000 a year or more. as the board may see tit, and I know that many of the other commissioners are of the same opinion. I shall bring the matter up before ',he board as early as possible." Signs of disintegration of the " working minority " of the County board are not lacking. now that the board has been organized and has gotten down to the winter's work. It is freely said about the City Hall that John Gildea, janitor of the City Hall, is to be offered the position of superintendent of the county institutions at Dunning, an office which pays $3,000 per year. on account of his friendship to County Commissioner Otto Hulsman. Gildea and Hulsman are friends of long standin4i- in the old Fifteenth, or new Twenty-eighth Ward, and it is said that the victory of Mr. Hulsman over Herrmann by a margin of seventeen votes out of 350,000 votes was in no small measure due to work done for the candidate by Mr. Gildea. Several changes will be made in the Coroner's office tomorrow. Several of the deputies under former Coroner Berz, who were held over while Coroner Traeg-er's appointees were being taught the ways of the office. will be let out. Two new appointees were named: Charles T. Rucker of the Twenty-fourth Ward will succeed John Hawkinson as clerk, and John Hamper of the Thirtieth Ward will be clerk at the County Morgue. The appointment of the custodians and minor employes of the Courthouse and the Criminal Court Building will remain in the hands of the Sheriff. Such is the conclusion of President lianberg of the County board, based upon the opinion of County Attorney - Johnson.

Strickland, Thirteenth Ward. For City AttorneyM. H. Taft. Thirty-third Ward. For City TreasurerD. H. Daly. Twelfth Ward. .. The foregoing ticket WaS placed In nomination at the convention of the Social Democrats held at rhlich's Hall, North Clark street. last night. Although the convention was called to order by J. B. Smiley a little after 8 o'clock, nominations were not reached until nearly midnight.. owing to a protracted dispute over the platform. The radical or revolutionary socialistic element, headed by R. A. Morris, opposed the more conservative element headed by Thomas J. Morgan. The question in dispute was a clause favoring municipal ownership of street railways. It was opposed by the radicals and favored by the Morgan crowd. It was defeated in the committee and shared a like fate when brought before the convention. The radicals opposed it because It was favored by the capitalists. they asserted. The platform advocates the employment of all unemployed by the municipality, which Is also to help support laboring men when on strike. It is also demanded that all school children be given free school books, clothing, and meals, and free medical and hospital service is insisted upon for all sick and injured persons. The convention, which was presided over by F. G. Strickland, was composed of 165 delegates, representing all the wards of the city excepting the Third. Collins is a member of the Machinists' union, Is 43 years of age, and has lived In Chicago for over twenty years. Mr. Strickland, candidate for City Clerk, is pastor of the People's Christian Church. Hamlin and Chicago avenues, and was a candidate for Alderman on the Socialist ticket last spring. WAR ON THE NEW WARD LINES. Civic Societies Bring Pressure to Bear and the Mayor's Veto Practically Is AssurecL Civic oc1t1e have taken up the fight against the redistricting ordinance and have begun to bring pressure on the Mayor to insure his veto of the measure. Alderman Ailing went to the Mayor yesterday with proof that alterations had been made In the ordinance after It had been given to the City Clerk, and it is expected that the ordinance will be killed tomorrow night. With the failure of the.present ordinance the Election Commissioners will not be able to delay their redistricting of election precincts, and the city will have to bear an additional expense of from $50.000 to ST5,000. " I have been Informed of the name of the Alderman who Is said to have made pencil alterations in the original ordinance," Alderman Ailing said. " The ordinance as It stands in the minutes Is not the ordinance which was passed. If the work of the Council can be done in the City Clerk's office there is not much need of hiring Aldermen.. I Shall see that the matter is aired in the Council." The changes that have been made will cause the veto of the ordinance. such changes make the ordinance 'void. of course. I shall veto It If It be true that changes have been made," said the Mayor. City Clerk 14oettier denied that he had permitted any one to take the ordinance oucof his office. COWBOYS LASSO 'A HORSE. Heren Brothers, from Pan-Handle, Arrested in Turner Avenue Charged with Stealing an Animal. Samuel E. and Edward L. Heren. brothers, cowboys from the pan-handle of Texas, were yesterday arrested charged with stealing a horse. With full cowboy outfit they were ridinF along Turnar avenue, near Twenty-second street.

Look with Envy on Their South Side Sisters Who Have a Surfeit of Hash, but the Other Side of the Story Is That the Evanston Young Women Spurn Oyster CroquettesMatron Is Indignant and Resents the Charges of Insufficiency. As an echo to the walls of the young women students at the University of Chicago comes the complaint of the " coeds " at Northwestern that they do not have enough to eat. While the students at the University of Chicago object to their food because they have no change in the monotonous sequence of hash and eggs, eggs and hash, the students at Evanston say that they would be satisfied to have no change if only enough were provided to satisfy their appetites. The authorities at Woman's Hall contradict the girls statements that the quantity of edibles placed before the hungry students is insufficient- Meantime the grocers and caterers of Evanston are flourishing. because of the frequent purchases made by the hungry young women. Oyster croquettes are the subject of especial antipathy on the part of many of the objectors. One of the girls, in speaking about their meals yesterday, said: " We get tired of having oyster croquettes for dinner on three days of the week, as often happens that we do. Perhaps we wouldn't care so much if there was enough to satisfy us. but there never is, and as a result we have to patronize the stores almost every evening to get enough to eat. " Several of the students who had rooms here at the beginning of the fall semester have left and are now staying where they pay less and get better food." Another said: " It is always good news to hear that a reception will be given to the faculty of the university at the hall. We k-now then that we shall have a good meal for once. so that is almost the only time at which we have a course dinner." Miss Anna Patterson, matron at Woman's Hall, was indignant when she heard what was being said by the young women in her charge. " If they do not get what they want here," she said. " why don't they go somewhere else? We pride ourselves that we feed our students better than any other college in the country does. We do not have a hotel service here, but try to have it in family style as far as possible. We have students here who came from other institutions. and they say our fare is better than that of the colleges from which they have come. " The young women pay $5.50 a week for board. heat, light. and a limited amount of washing, and they certainly get the worth of their meney. Any one who says she does not ought to be ashamed of herself." STAGE OUTFIT DELAYS TRAINS. Mrs. Fiske's Effects and " Becky Sharp " Scenery Thrown in Way of North Side Cable Cars. Mrs. Fiske's personal baggage. together with the scenery used in her production of " Becky Sharp." which closed at the Grand Opera-House last night. was the cause of blocking the North Side cable trains in Dearborn street. near Randolph. for nearly half an hour at 11 oclock last night. The wagon with its great load of scenery, boxes. and trunks was turning into Dearborn street when one of the front wheels stuck in the car track. dumping the entire load into the street. The driver jumped just In time to keep from being crushed under the heavy boxes. Some of the trunks were broken open by the force of the fall and their contents scattered in the street. Everything from " makeup " boxes to evening costumes were displayed to the crowd that gathered. and it took some time to pick up the stuff and repack it, the cable trains being compelled to wait. DRAWS LESSON FROM SALOONS. Edwin F. Walker, After Study of a Month in Chicago, Gives His Impressions to Evanston. N. Edwin F. Walker of Evanston. who spent November studying the saloon problem in Chicago, has given out the first of a, series of articles The Saloon; What It Is and Why It Exists." He says in part: " There Is a wide diversity even in saloons. On entering the first workingmen's saloon I visited the sign that greeted my eyes was: No obscene or profane language allowed in this place.' This was a poserand in a river district. too! Could it be that this was one of those places we call the !gateway to hell ? No loafing allowed," No hangers-on wanted, were the other signs which appeared In the most prominent places. I studied the features of this, the most moral saloon I have ever seen. Picture machines, nude pictures, the vicious winerooms, and gambling slot machines were all conspicuous by their absence. It was strictly a drinking, not a loafing place. As the workingmen drank their huge glasses of beer they stood at the bar or at the tree lunch counter, as the place was inviIjngly clean. They were hungry; the fare was cheap. and they were bound to economize. Their employers, who may be sending money to starving India, do not think about their healthily hungry men. The chance to cultivate the liquor habit could often be avoided if employers built in their factories bright, homelike lunchrooms in which soups and hot drinks could be had." Pan-Handle Switchman Killed. C. R. Meninger. 21 years old, was run over and killed by a switch engine yesterday afternoon. Hie home was at 6151 Kimbark avenue and he worked as a switchman for the Pan-Handle railroad compacy. He steped from a Pan-Handle train and walked directly In front of a Chicago. Milwaukee and St Paul switch engine going in the opposite direction. Citizens of Evanston are now considering who their candidate for Alayor will be at the spring election. Although the contest at which the different factions will clash is still about five months 'away, yet it is almost decided as to who will enter the race for the highest honor bestowed by the voters of the northern suburb. Instead of the methods which were employed in the city election of 1899, when the candidates ran independently of any political party it is certain that the Republican City Central committee, which meets on Jan. 25, will declare its intention of entering the contest and of having its own candidate in the field. The convention which meets shortly before election is expected to place in nomination the present Mayor. Thomas Bates. The opposition, which will take the name of the citizens' ticket, will probably have for its candidate George E. Gooch, the present Alderman from the Second Ward. If these two men are chosen the residents of Evanston will behold the unwonted spectacle of two formerly staunch Democrats. who are now Republicans, striving for the executive office of a city which has always been Republican in its politics. Both men have a strong following, as their record has been of the best, but it is felt that Mayor Bates is the stronger, because of his having already filled the office in such an able manner. TEACHERS TALK OF A TAX FIGHT. Miss Goggin and Miss Haley Tell the Federation They May WinTrustee Loesch Discussed.. The Teachers' federation met yesterday at Handel Hall, and. in addition to the regular lecture by Prcqessor Arnold Tompkins, 'listened to some matters of interest in connection with the tax fight. Miss Goggin and Miss Haley both hold out strong hopes that the suit which will be taken up on Tuesday at Springfield will compel a further assessent of corporation -property. The recent criticism of the federation by Trustee Loesch of the Board of Education, made before the Howland club, occasioned some resentment among the teachers. The general answer of the teachers to Mr. Loesch's criticism was that, as he was the attorney for a large railroad corporation, they could expect nothing else. Miss Goggin reported a conversation she had held recently with Mr. Loesch. She said he expressed himself as in sympathy with the tax crusade. He repeated to her. however, the words he had used before the Howland club: " I take no stock in the Teachers' federation from A to Z." His reason, he told Miss Goggin, is that he believes the organization encourages insubordination among the teachers and destroys the discipline of the schools. He intimated that the Teachers' federation is endeavoring to protect incompetent teachers from dismissal. Miss Goggin denied this charge and said no one was more anxious than the federation to see the teaching force kept up to standard. Miss Margaret Haley amused the teachers by reproducing from shorthand notes a part of the scene at the State Board of Equalization when the teachers and representatives of the corporations met. She gave the words of the representatives as they had been uttered without omitting any of the forcible expressions. Delegates to the State Teachers' association, which is to convene at Springfield during the holidays. were elected as follows: Mrs. Frances C. Temple, Miss Margaret Haley. Miss Cathereine Goggin. More light will be shed upon the tax fight at the meeting of the Henry George association to be held at Handel Hall tomorrow afternoon at 3 o'clock. when Miss Haley and Miss Goggin will deliver addresses upon the subject: " The Inside and the Outside of Our Tax Fight." At the meeting of the Chicago Principals' club. held in the Masonic Temple, various matters pertaining to municipal affairs came up for discussion. CONSUL HERE FROM KIMBERLEY Gardner F. Williams Says Boers Will Continue to Fight for Months in Vain. " No man can tell when the fighting will cease in the Transvaal. but when it is over the two republics will be crown colonies. As republics they are things of the past." This was the statement made by Gardner F. Williams, United States Consul at Kimterley. south Africa. at the Auditorium Annex last night. Mr. 'Williams is on his way to Washington on private business. He expects to return to Kimberley shortly after the first of the year. He left his south African post in July. He has represented the United States for nine years and been a resident of the Transvaal since 1st4. " The war, as a war, is over," said Mr. Williams. " but there will be guerrilla fighting for many months. Small bands of Boers are harassing the English, separating at the approach of a large body of the English army, to reassemble in another section of the country. and continue their attacks. It IS evident they hope to continue the fighting until they are able to get better terms from the British, but it is doubtful if they hope to save their republics. which in reality were nothing less than an oligarchy. " It has been stated that I went to Pretoria before the war to see President Kruger In behalf of the Americans in the Transvaal. I did not. The committee of Americans was headed by Louis I.

" Among the characteristics of the tribes their funeral rites are the most peculiar." said Mr. Cherry last night. " Instead of weeping or dancing after a death the mourners proceed to turn somersaults and keep it up until exhausted. It Is a strange sight to see all the inhabitants of &village engaged in this pursuit. " The new species of elephants I have found lecurious. They are small and have no tusks. They live in herds and are more cunning than the ordinary animal. I thlek they can be transformed into a beriet of burden. which will assist in the develeprnent of that countrv . acme sections of which are the finest In the world."
