Despite the objections of her ambitious mother. Miss Katherine Force, sister of Mrs. Madeline Force Astor, is busily preparing for her wedding late this month to Henri Harnlckel, a poor but honest clerk In the office of a New York broker. The mother objects to the marriage of her daughter to Mr. Harnlckel because the latter has no wealth.

He Is not attended by a physician, but remains in the executive mansion aiding his attorneys in the preparation of technical matters. WASHINGTON, D. C, Sept. 20. Secretary of State William J. Bryan said today that he intended to continue hi9 Chautauqua lectures just as long as he pleases. Angered at published reports to the effect that he intended to cancel further lecture dates because of criticism on his leaving Important affairs of state in the hands of subordinates, Bryan said: "This evening I will deliver the last lecture of the season. My total income from lectures this year is a little over $7000. The net receipts, after deducting all expenses, were over $fij00.

I have had the yacht and the wonders of wealth, but I have not had love. Katherino is a most fortunate person.

According to report, Miss Katherine will have more than love, even if her husband never is able to make very much money. For Mrs. Astor has a great abundance, nnd will not see her sister want. She has given her n beautiful trousseau nnd has setlled on her a handsome allowance. IS P OUNDING WASHINGTON", D. C, Sept. 20. Secretary of State Bryan last night denied the request of the American refugees from Mexico, now at San Diego and other southern California points, that they be Bent back to Mexico. The ground of the refusal is that the state department lias no funds for this purpose. Back of this is the additional reason that the administration, having directed that Americans leave Mexico, does not want to stultify itself by ordering, or sanctioning, their return. The White House and state department officials are "passing the buck" on the controversy. At the state department is is declared that the president ordered all Americans out of Mexico and that the department simply carried out the purpose of the president's mess-nge to congreRg on the Mexican situation. At the White House there are intl-mntlons that the state department construed the president's message too broadly, and that the warning to Americans to leave Bhould have been sent only to those In the danger zones. f s ON THE ROCKS BACK 01 THE FREE LIST SANTA BARBARA, Sept. 20.

Former United Slates Congressman Washington Gardner of Albion, Mich., SO, 11113. Prior to this year, there had been a loss of from $115 to $500 per year. At present the steamship company is paying .to the city $100 per yenr. Three bidders for the wharf are willing to pay a greater sum per annum. The proposition to take control of the wharf wns unanimously carried. Monterey needs a first-class wharf and no doubt the city will be bonded for that purpose.

The finer grades of paper would also be manufactured. This mill would have no competition on the Pacific coast except the mills of the Everett pulp and paper company at Everett, Wash, where he was employed as chemist and assistant superintendent for a number of years. Figures were produced to Show the cost of production and the prices at which the manufactured product could be sold, and showed a net profit of approximately thirty-five per cent. There is a ready market for the local product as soon as it could be delivered up to as high as fifteen tons daily, wholesalers already agreeing to take it. There is no overcrowding of the market. Paper or all kinds is in great demand everywhere. No modern mill is ever compelled to close down for any period of time such as is the case of other manufacturing plants. In fact there is not enough paper manufactured in this country to supply the demand and the foreign Imports reach high into the millions annually. PEPPERED WITH QUESTIONS. Mr. Pillsbury talked for nearly two hours last evening. He was convincing and certainly did not give a single indication of being a promoter with a selfish end in view, come what may to the investor. He invited the fullest questioning on any point from the audience and was accommodated. John Rukema of Riverside avenue, (Continued on page four.) SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 20. A. R. Coulson, who last night surrendered to the police as the man who entered the Atlas garage early yesterday morning and shot and killed George Kovack and Wiliam Asker and badly wounded Mrs. Kate Gallagher, also know n as Mrs. Coulson, was still very uncommunicative this morning. It Is not likely that he will be charged with murder until nfter the Inquest. Coul-son's only statement was: "I did not know that my wife was out In an automobile. I spent the day down town and when I read of the shooting I went to an attorney's office, and then surrendered." When told that the wounded woman was still showing great loyalty to him and of her statement that she believed he kissed her after the shooting, Coulson 's eyes filled. Asked concerning the report that he had not lately provided for his two children, Coulson answered, "I have receipts as late as four days ago to Bhow that that story is not true." It is now believed that the woman shot by Coulson will recover. The shooting occurred at 4 o'clock in the morning. Accompanied by Mrs. Mary G. Stafford, wife of an automobile, salesman, the Gallagher woman had been on a joyride in Acker's machine all night and had left the Stafford woman asleep in a road-house; and had returned to the garage with Acker. Kovack joined the chauffeur and his companion and the three were SAN FRANCISCO, Sept, 20. Arthur R. Coulson, who Is alleged to have shot to death "nilly" Archer and George Kovach nnd to have attempted the murder of Catherine Gallagher, whom he found drinking beer with the men at the Atlas garage, 70 Oak street, after their return from a round of the beach resorts, surrendered himself to the police lnte yesterday afternoon after an hour's conference with his attorneys, George M. Elpman and II. N. Mathews, in the Pacific building. Coulson refused to talk. In reply to Detective M. R. de la Guerra, who made the arrest and who asked him where he had spent the morning until tho time of his capture, he said: "I have nothing to say." That was the reply to every question and ho preserved an absolutely stolid demeanor, refusing to budge from his policy of "masterly silence." According to information now in the hands of the police, Catherine Gallagher, at first thought to he his wife, met CoulBon some bIx years ago in Scranton, Pa. His wife, Eucinda Coulson, has been an inmate of the state Insane asylum at Uklah for sevr eral years. Coulson has two children, Earl and Walter, seven and ten years of age respectively, who have been at the St. Francis girls' directory, a religious Institution at the corner of Central avenue and Buena Vista. As the very satisfactory outcome of an intensely interesting meeting held at the chamber of commerce rooms last night when forty citizens and business men heard what G. M. Pills-bury had to say in detail concerning the feasibility and productiveness of the establishment of the new proposed paper mill here, President G. A. Mon-tell of the chamber will appoint a committee of five citizens to devise ways and means for the starting of the paper mill Industry here at the earliest possible moment, with Mr. Pillsbury as the chemist and superintendent in charge of the plant. GIVES LUCID ACCOUNT. Mr. Pillsbury himself spent two hours on the floor last evening explaining lucidly and to the final satisfaction of every man present that his proposition was a good one. Most of the information imparted has already appeared in The News, but several pertinent points answering the contentions of many who have been skeptical and silently in opposition, were brought out. REDWOOD BUGABOO DIES. For Instance, Mr. Pillsbury stated that he had cooked 600 pounds of redwood fibre pulp himself and made splendid paper from it; the governmental station at Madison, Wis., had done likewise, as well as several private commercial laboratories. He explained that from the redwood paper samples In his possession he had already been given orders sufficient to keep a mill producing five tons dally at Santa Cruz. The speaker called to the attention of his auditors, however, that there was enough pine in the county to keep the mill running well beyond the span of life of any man sitting In the room last night; so the redwood bugaboo was not an essential point in criticism because the same identical machinery was used in the manufacture from pulp of both kinds. Mr. Pillsbury stated last night that his plan for financing Included no promotion stock to anyone and that he personally did not desire to handle a cent of the new company's money and that he made no pretensions to being a business manager. DETAILS OF PROPOSED MILL. The local mill, if built, would be a ten-ton mill, capable of turning out ten tons of paper a day, working day and night. Forty-eight men would be employed, one-third of them being experts who would have to be secured abroad, the others local people. The pay roll would be $3500 per month. Mr. Pillsbury said that he THREE HUNDRED HORSES AT VICTORIA RACES. VICTORIA, B. C, Sept. 20.
