Of the fifty-six in the sick cars, thirty-seven were removet to Cottage hospital, and the rest to the Red Cross hospital at Camp McKinley In all probability, ::o-,v that their is no longer occasion for enforcing the rigorous discipline of camp life, many oi those who have been suffering from slight fevers and malaria, will go to the hospitals to recuperate before being lurloughed and sent home CHILD FATALLY HURT.

LONDON. Sept. 3.—A report is current that a treaty of allegiance between Great Britain and Germany on the lines of the speech of Chamberlain have been actually completed. This is probably the amplification of the gossip relative to daily visits of the German ambassador to the foreign office for the past fortnight which had been attributed to a desire on the part of Germany and Great Britain to formulate a common policy in regard to Russia and China. Another explanation of the German ambassador's visits is that they relate to the mixed tribunals of Egypt, the international agreement on the subject ending in February. Through French and Russian influence the court has always hampered British plans for use of Egyptian savings and the advancement of Egypt. Now it is said an agreement has been almost reached by which Germany will support British views. MILES-ALGER RUPTURE. Maximum Penally for Alper's Alleged Crime In Death. WASIIIXOTO.V. Sept. 1.—The belief nmong army officers is that (Sen. Miles is tryinsr to force an inquiry. They do not see how nny other interpretation can be put upon the interviews that he has been giving out. His assertions in regard to the conduct of the war department have been such that it is hardly possible for the secretary to refrain from calling him to account. According to the best information obtainable, the secretary has the calling of an inquiry in contemplation. General Miles is evidently well prepared for such a move. He is too old and a soldier to deliberately invite a court martial unless he considered himself well fortified. If the inquiry comes, it will doubtless throw much light upon many matters which have been the subject of criticism. PRESIDENT AT WIKOFF. Nation's Kxecutlve Sneaks Cheering Words to SIek and Wounded. CAMP WIKOFF, Montauk Point, Sept. 4. — President McKinlcy spent five hours in the camp yesterday bareheaded, most of the time visiting the sick in the hospitals and inspecting the well in their cantonments, lie mnde a speech to the assembled infantrymen. reviewed the cavalrymen, expressed his opinion of the camp to the reporters, and issued an order directing the regulars to return to their stations cast of the Mississippi.

THE DREYFUS CASE. Cnnge.s the Resignation of th« French Minister of War. PATUS. Sept. 5.—M. Cavaignac, minister for war, has resigned. The resignation of M. Cavaignac is due to a disagreement with his colleagues, who desire a revision of the Dreyfus case. Thus a revision of the case seems assured. M. Cavaignac sent the following letter of resignation to M. Brisson. premier and president of the council: "I have the honor to send you and beg you to transmit to the president of the republic, my resignation as minister of war. There exists a disagreement between us which, being prolonged, would paralyze the government at a time when it most needs full unity of decision. I remain convinced of the guilt of Dreyfus and as determined as heretofore to combat a revision of the case. I do not intend to shirk the responsibilities of the present situation: but I cannot assume them without being in accord with the chief of the government to which I have the honor to belong." THE BATTLE OF OM DURM AN. The Hrlllsh LOSH .Said to He 100, the Dorvish Loss Very Heavy. CAIRO, Egypt, Sept, 5.—The following dispatch, dated Saturday, has just been received from Nazri: "Early this morning the Dervishes made a most determined attack upon the Anglo-Egyptian forces, but after an hour's hard fighting we drove them off. At 8:31) n. in. a general advance was ordered upon Oradurman, and again we were received with a determined attack on our right, but the Dervishes were once more repulsed, with heavy loss. The army under the personal command of the 'khalifa was totally dispersed by noon. At2 o'clock this afternoon our forces advanced again and occupied Omdurman. The khalifa fled during the forenoon and is now being closely pursued by our cavahy. It is impossible now to give a complete list of the casualties. The British loss is estimated at about 100. The Egyptian loss is probably I.'OO. Karl Neufeld was rescued unharmed." Tho t'nndo Story Was Untrnc. NKW YORK. Sept. 5.—The story from Havana that General Pando. the former commander of tho Spanish troops at Man/.anillo, had secretly fled irora Cuba on a French .steamship for Spain, with 1'.',000.000 francs, was proven to be unfounded when the Philadelphia came to her dock. General Pando was the first of forty-two passengers who arrived from Havana on the vessel to land. ' The custom officers, who examined General Panda's luggage, said he was well supplied with funds. Alnrmea About Bryan's Regiment. LINCOLN, Neb., Sept. 5.—Governor Holcomb has telegraphed to Washington asking if it was possible to secure an honorable discharge for the members of the Third Nebraska, Bryan's regiment, on their application. Private advices from Jacksonville telling of four deaths within a week and an alleged increase on the sick list of the regiment prompted the governor's action. Omdurman Is Taken. LONDON, Sept. 5.—A dispatch to the Observer dated Nasri Island, says: "Omdurman has been occupied after a battle in which only slight resistance was offered by the dervishes. The khalifa, who had re-entered the town, iied as we entered. One hundred and fifty prisoners were released. Our entire forco is now encamped in the desert west of tho town.

The Chinese government troops have been defeated in two pitched battles duriiiQ- the last ten days by the Kwnng Si rebels, losing 3,000 men. The rebels are said to number 00,000 and the provincial forces are powerless against them. Paris dispatch: Lieutenant Colonel Henry, who was arrested on the charge of having been the author of an important letter which figured in the Dreyfus case, after having confessed to forging documents by which Dreyfus was convicted, has committed suicide. Many people believe that tho real turning point in the Dreyfus caso has been reached and that a revision of the trial of the prisoner of Devil's Island will bo had. Tho dispatches state that an order has been issued detaching Admiral Sohley from the command of the second squadron of the North Atlantic fleet and ordering him to Porto Kico as a member of the evacuation commission, during which time he will fly his flag on the cruiser New Orleans, which will remain in- those waters pending the completion of the commission's work.

His flag will beAllsplayed on the cruiser Hesofuto. AW INTERVIEW WITH SHAFTER Freely of the Condition* In the Santiago Campaign. NE\V YORK. Sept, 3.—The World prints an interview with General ,8hafter. in which he is represented as saying: "At Santiago we had to deal with things as they were, not as they should have been. Of course there was sickness. But nobody was neglected. Doctors were scarce at first, but we had boat loads of them as soon tis they could get there. Doctors got sick like the rest. They were ovef- worked and exhausted, but their ability was unquestionable. Look at the low percentage of deaths from wounds. It never was lower in any war. The men who ordered a summer campaign in 11. fever infested country are responsible for the natural and unavoidable consequences. Anaes- thetics were plentiful. Itwastheheat that was so deadly, and the rains. Right in the midst of the most torrid heat a shower would fall. It would drench everybody without cooling the air. In a few minutes, under the sun again, every man would be steaming. Men of the strongest constitution succumbed.' 1 Disease More Deadly Than Bullets. CHICAGO, Sept. 2.— The Tribune prints statistics showing the number of soldiers who have been killed in battle and have died of disease in camps during the war with Spain. The Tribune says: "While 3"iO officers and men have been killed in battle ordied of wounds received, there have died of disease in camps between 1,200 and a,000 volunteers and reirulars. The Tribune has secured the names of 1,284 who died in camp, on transports or at home, after contracting the dread malady at one oC the camps. There is no doubt about the 1,284 whose names have been secured. Neither is there much doubt that there are hundreds dead whose names could not be secured on account of lack of records and the inability or unwillingness of army officers to furnish lists of the dead." Iviiurliind Approves the Peace Note. LONDON, Sept. 3.—The Westminster Ga/.ette announces that, although, owing to the absence of Salisbury, Great Britain has not yet formally replied to the czar's note, the British ambassador at St. Petersburg has already communicated in cordial terms the hearty sympathy with which the note was read by the acting minister of foreign affairs, Baifour. When Salisbury replies he will hail with satis- facton and delight the czar's initiate, assuring him of the determination of her majesty's advisers to. co-operate heartily to prolong his groat aim. General lirooke In Command. GUAYAMA. Porto Kico, Sept. 3:—Upon General Miles's departure General Brooke issued an order assuming command of the troops in the island. The bridges along the military road have been repaired and General Brooke has started northward. The inurch to San Juan will probably consume four days. LITERARY NOTES. The September number of the Delineator is called the autumn aunounce- mcnt'iiuinber. and describes accurately and.in detail all the latest developments in the world of dress. The literary features are of the usual marked CTceellenee, and the household subjects are practical and timely. The article in the series on "Photography for Amateurs."by Shiirlot M. Half, is on the "Dry-Plate," and will prove of viilue to every student who aims to obtain the best results. Pen and pencil have combined to make Outing for September a mastcr- pieco of pictures by hind and sea, and a very treasure house of useful knowledge to those who love to live in or linger over the never fading charms of mother nature. The entire Porto Kicnn eampaign is clearly .set forth in the September Review of Reviews by John A. Church, an expert military writer. A:: unusual number of short stories with a war flavor will be found in .Harper's Round Table for September. The opening one. "How the Powder- Boy Gave Us Courage," is by Lieutenant-Commander Albion V. 'Wadhnms, IT. S. N. Others are, "An Episode of the War of 1870," by H. W. Fischer, and "The Boy is Father to the Man," an interesting' account of Admiral Dewey as a boy, by S. A. D. Cox. Hainlin Garland contributes to the September McCI lire's an account of General Cnster's last light in the actual words of Two Moon, an Indian chief still livinsr, who took part in it. The article will be illustrated with portraits from life. The September Atlantic, contains a clour and concise, editorial review of the international situation and the new duties and responsibilities devolving upon the United States in consequence of the restoration of peace. The great topics of current interest are reflected iu the contents of tho September St. Nicholas. Tho number opens with an article by Tudor Junks on "Tlie Voyage of the 'Oregon,'" with illustrations by an artist with the lleet. An illustrated article on "The, Gun Foundry at Washington. D C.,-' tells how tho big guns of 'the American navy, which have just given such a good account of themselves are made. r<-i «-,", •' elltl!

Dr. Senn, of Hi* United States .\rmv Say* tt Will Be Worse. New York dispatch: Camp is to be investigated. Gen. has ordered Gen. Adelbert Ames, chief of staff on Gen. Kent's staff, to conduct an investigation. He is given almost autocratic powers. General W : heeier has ordered him to get nt the bottom of all the things which hare been complnined of. The subjects Gen. Ames is to investigate are: W| tv is the general condition of the camp so poor; why do the conditions that pr e . vail exist; who' is responsible: win- troops were sent to the camp before it was ready to receive them: why, since there was but one railroad leadimr into the camp, boats were not used to carry men and provisions from New York city; why needed medicines were not ordered, or if they were ordered why they were not distributed: why the hospitals are crowded: why transports were allow d to lie in the harbor without supplic. .ind relief being sent but to them. Dr. Soon, r jtant surgeon general of the army. >eakingof thecouditions at Camp WiUoff, said: "I want yon to reiterate that unless this camp is cleared out within six weeks it will bo the worst infected place in the United States. The soil will be permeated with typhoid fever and epidemics will follow. It will bo worse than it has been at any time at Chiekamauga. In regard to that camp, I want to say that I warned the Washington authorities before the soldiers were .sent there that danger would result from massing a body of men there. I told them that, the water supply was insufficient, and that the use of river water would result in typhoid fever. My protest went unheeded. The result was shown when I was in Porto Rico with General Miles. Almost the first men sent him were from Chiekamauga. They were run down and half sick when they arrived." TALK OF ANNEXATION. Intelligent FIllpInoK Said to be In Favor of H. iNKwYoiiK, Sept. 5.—The Herald's Manila special says: One of General Aguinalclo's confidential advisers says his purpose of leading the Filipinos at present is to petition the United States for annexation. The educated natives realize that they can never secure prosperity and stability of government under Tagallo rulers. Aguinuldo is not a party to the scheme; still he declares for a republic under an American protectorate. Intelligent natives believe that annexation is the truer road to liberty in view of the fact that Pin. Pilar, the southern leader and Pustli Chinese, the chieftan in Malibar district, show stronjrer intentions dailv of breaking from the central dictator. GARCIA TURNED DOWN. lias Been Keliuvcd of His Cuban Army Command. NKW YOHK, Sept, I.—The Herald's Santiago special says: General Garcia has been relieved of his command by General Gomez, acting under instructions from theprovisional government. This is owing to disapproval of his action during the Shafter incident and in view that Garcia is persona non- grata to the American government. At the commencement of the Avar the Cuban officers were ordered to put themselves under the orders of Un- American commander, and the letter from Garcia to Shafter is looked upon as a breach, of discipline. His resignation was not accepted, but he was relieved of his command. General Rodriguez, commanding' in the east under Gomez, will succeed him. Pessimistic reeling in France. PAULS. Sept. ;t. — The most pessiinis- cic feelings exist. It is the -common belief that Great Britain and Russia are on the eve of war, and that the consequences of tho Dreyfus scandal will involve Franco in a war with Germany. The government is doing its best to stem the rising tide of agitation by a studied quiescence which scandalizes the Journal Dos Debats and other papers; but it. may succeed in gettiiij,' over the crisis. M. Faure ignores t lie eproaches of the press and remains at Havre. Itlamee Governors. Sept. a.— Senator Ihimui has returned from a month's outing in the northwest. In an interview lie said: "I do not care to pi ace tho blame for the conditions upon anyone. I will say, however, that the governorsof the different states appointed the ollici'i-s of volunteers and we find that illness among the troops comes from the volunteer ranks. Places for locating tl>» camps were selected because of their availability and general climatic conditions." Devotion. You seem to have unbounded con, e ' ltu i» ^resident McKinley." new wlu-"' C!
