S.—AdmiralDewey believes the report brought to Manila by a Dominican friar that Aguinaldo had issued orders to Filipino soldiers in the northern provinces to return to their towns and resume farming. The admiral is of the opinion that such a move on the part of Againaldo indicates that the insurgent commander is weakening, as a result of the fonnid- i able preparations being made by this j government to suppress the insurrec- ' Second Contest ! tion during the coming dry season. The returning of the soldiers to their homes is. tlie admiral believes, the beginning of the clisintergration of the insurgent army, and he urges that the re-enforcements for both army and navy be sent as expeditiously as possible to Manila in order to demoralize the rebels before the dry season begins. rrEB. B. C.. Oek 9- — A remarkable story of cannibalissn was brought to Sydney. Australia, a few days before the sailing of the Aorangi to this port by the French steamer Jeanette. The victim of the display of savagery was a native of Hawaii, named Amaru, who acted as orderly to the immigration department at Xoumea. in the JNew nebrices. AKiut six months ago Atcaro married a native woman of Aoba in the 2f ew Hebrides group, and on passing thai island on the second voyage of the Jeannette to one of the outlaying islands, he decided to visit his wife's tribe. Accordingly the couple was put off in a small boat and it was only a few weeks ago that the steamer made a second call and learned their fate. By mistake they had landed on an unfriendly shore and were taken prisoners. The man was tied to a stake and his torture began. This consisted first of allowing vicious jungle snakes from which the poison fangs had been removed to attack the man's legs. Then a fire was made at his feet and his legs were horribly burned, though the injury was superficial s/> that the victim would not die under the treatment. Then he was made a target for the speers of the tribesmen who finally killed him. He was torn to pieces and placed over a fire with two sheep. In fact, according to the story, he was eaten with the sheep. In the meantime Amura's wife had been provided with a second husband. The matter WP.S reported to a British man-of-war, but it is thought no action has been taken. AGAIX KKSULTED IX XO KACE. and Between Columbia Shamrock Was a Failure. NEW YORK.

The exact cause of the failure of the parachute to act is unknown, but the general opinion is that the balloon was not high enough from the ground and the parachute did not have time to Open. HATKS COXCKDED. Law Dot--, Xot Permit Sale of Ames Farm by Trustees of College. BES MorsrES. Oct. 5.—The board of trustees of the State Agricultural college asked Attorney General liemley for an opinion regarding the sale of part of the Ames farm for a right-of- way across the farm, but wants another and ] in order to proceeB with its double i tracks, it is going to build. Mr. Eem- ley has formulated his opinion which is that, although the law authorizes the trustees of the «-hobl to manage and control the property of the college, it does not contemplate the sale of land or otherwise permanent disposal of it liy them. This means that the legislature will have to pass upon the question before such right-of-way can be condemned. Humeston & Slic'naiidoali Koad Concedes J'reiglit Kates.

Tie said as the fund had eoine from the people in small sums, not through large contributions by a few wealthy men. he would accept it.

The committee will get options on a number of houses in the quarter of the city he prefers, and will submit them for his selection when he returns from Vermont. which went out to watch the contestants returned disappointed and not a little disgusted. The question of supremacy of the two great yachts is still as much of an open question as before they first met. and the contest yesterday was in some respects more of a fluke than that of Tuesday.

The situation is most critical. The magistrates and municipal officers have assembled in the town hall to concoct measures for the defense of the town against an expected attack. All the women and children have been ordered to leave for the interior of Natal." LATEST NEWS IS PACIFIC. Indications That the Uoers Will Xot Invade NataL LONDON. Oct. !i.—Most important news comes from the Transvaal, which, if true, probably indicates that the South African republic is about to yield, or in any case that the Boers have abandoned all idea of invading Natal. The news is comprised in a Cablegram from Newcastle. Natal, which says that farmers who arrived there from the Buffalo river state that ! the Boers are returning- to their homes, the river. The commanders -still remain on the Free State harbor. The dispatch also says that the feeling at Newcastle now is that the Boers do not intend to attack that place and that the evacuation of the town was premature. This retirement of the Boers is what the British war authorities have expected, as their defective commissariat would prevent them from long remaining massed along the border.

Oct. 9. —Opinion among leading men in Washington is decul. edly against the United States offering mediation between Great Britain and! South African Republic. Even among 1 those who sympathize with thft Boers out of a natural tendency to side with the weaker, there is little disposition to believe that the controversy is one in which the United States would be justified in offering- media- lion without direct 'solicitation. Opposition to mediation is based not only on the fact that it is contrary to the' policy of the United States to interfere n the controversies that- do not affect America directly, but it is also recognized that Great Britain's claims of suzerainty over the Transvaal, to some extent recognized by the Boers themselves, makes the controversy different n the light of international law from a controversy between two perfectly independent states. The Transvaal aas no foreign relations, except through the medium of Great Britain, and tf-chnically any offer from the Cnitt u States to mediate might be regarded as an interference with the internal affairs of the British Empire, in mnch the same way that an offer from a European power to mediate between the United States and Aguinaldomight be considered an interference •with the internal affairs, of the United States.

"Therefore, we must show our gratitude and maintain our position more resolutely than ever. We should pray to God that the great democratic party may win the next presidential election and imperialism fail in its inad attempt to subjugate by force of arms. There are some Americans in the.

DES Moixns, Oct. 3.—Has a person a right to make a patented invention for his own use? This absurd question comes to us so frequently that it merits public notice. No person can make, sell or use any patented invention without license from the owner without becoming liable to prosecution for infringing and for damages. If one person could do so, every other person could, and a patent would be worthless to the owner. An inventor is not required to st ate the various purposes for which his invention may be used. It is his, when patented, for all the tises for which it is applicable. J. M.
