There were two prln- cl|mi rraponH for the decision to reduce the pres'-nt military force'. The desire to cut dnwn the expenses of the government was tlio more Important of these. Ily the muster out of 60,000 men thegov- iM-mncrit will save $780,000 a month In pay alone. The other reason is that by curtailing the size of the army by the numher mentioned the military service would In: coiin'oned of about 100.000 men, the force which the president, Sccreliiry Alfrer and Major General Miles ure agreed Is necessary to furnish KiirrlsoiiH fur Culm, Porto Hleo, the Philippines, und at home.

There are ninety-six volunteer organizations* iti the United States, counting the twelve companies of the signal corps as one body. In the Philippines there are twenty-one volunteer contingents, artillery, cavalry, infantry, engineers and signal service.

Dec. 23.—Dr. David J. Hill, assistant secretary of state, said that the disposition of the property of the Catholic church In the Philippines rests with congress and not with the state department. He continued: "I should think that a court similar to that which was organized after the annexation of our Mexican possessions will be the proper way to determine the ownership of landed estates. This court of private land claims has examined the title nf innumerable pieces of church properly In New Mexico, Arizona and Califoinla and it has given universal satisfaction. "Tin re Is no reason whatever for Cathi.llcs to think that their churchmen will not be honorably treated by the Uniti-d States government. Nor is there any reason for any one to believe that Hie administration will not proceed on broad lines, almlng'to form for the Philippine Islands a government which will develop them socially, religiously and materially."

Moreover, it is significantly stated that Mr. Sloane has selected a legal adviser "to take chturge of his interests." Both husband and wife have been shining lights in the "400," hence the gossip.

Her In the clay—have inclined the police to believe that had Theresa Hollinger's husband been as shrewd and cunning as was Louisa Luetgert's there would be some question whether she might not be alive and in hiding somewhere. If the Uuor Hud IJeen Open. If the door to the closet had not been closed and the fire thus smothered, the whole building mlsht have been consumed in names and all evidence destroyed, \vllh the dead woman's remains. In that event Hollingi-r would have occupied exactly the same position that I.uotgert did before suspicion was attracted to the fatal "middle vat." The wife's non-presence would arouse only the supposition that she had "disappeared." And Rolllnger would thus have been free to marry Lena Ilockcr, as Luetgert hoped to be at liberty to carry on his love affairs with Mary Slemmerlng and Mrs. Agatha Touch. According to the theory of the police, Kolllnger went about attempting to accomplish the desired end much as did "the biR German," whom hc,stril;ingly resembles in face, manner, gtafl|&»^ai)d gruff, hard speech. After Mrs. rSBjj(t<- ir was strangled to death, as the pom-'! maintain, her body was secreted under the'mattress of a disused bed and her absence was accounted for as was that of the sausage-maker's wife. Uolllnper explained to the children. Emll and Anlonia. when they asked for "mamma." that she had gone to set; a sick woman, naming Mrs. Karri, who lives on Orchard street, near Webster avenue. Spent Miivli 1 line A way from Home. Kollineer'R actions previous to the tragedy correspond with those of Luet- Ecrt. Both men led dual existences, spending many days anil nights away from their own housi s, which, by tho way. were in the same section of the city, being not n mile apart. Mrs. Kollinger's brother. Ferdinand Nabicht, was the first outside the members uf the police force to directly accuse Rol- llnger of murder, a situation which, also, is but a repetition of thu action of Luetgert's brother-in-law, Diedrlch BiekiufSe, when ho arraigned his sister's slayer. William Charles. Luetgert's business partner, figured In the sausage-maker's defense in the same capacity that George Demmer, Rollnlg- er's former business partner, has assumed, that of friend and champion of the accused. When Kolllnger exclaimed "Ach, Gott!" in apparent surprise at the news of his wife's death when he returned to the house an hour after her body had been taken to the morgue he manifested about as much j grief as his blR German prototype displayed when he viewed the mortal remains of Mrs. I.uetgert—some bone dust and a sesamuid or two that were rescued ,'rom the vat in the sausage factory where her body was disintegrated. Aellou of tlie Children. Kven Mrs. HolltHKer's little boy and girl, like Mrs. I.uetnert's two children. \vlin were about the same age. ranging Warning Testimony Given by an Employe of the Company. Cleveland. 0., Dec. 23.—The taking of depositions by Attorney General Mon- nelt to attempt to prove that the Standard Oil comany had destroyed a lot of its books and papers a few days before the supreme court ordered the books to be produced as evidence in the Investigation of the Standard OH company, was resumed. John McNierney, an employe of the Standard company for over two years, said that on Saturday morning, Nov. 19, he was ordered to burn a lot of the Standard Oil company's books. He burned them at about S o'clock in the furnace of the shops. Later In the clay, he said, he was ordered to KO to the Euclid avenue offices and set some boxes. The boxes were taken down from the Fifth floor in the elevator, but some one objected to them being taken out of the front door. Thereupon the boxes were taken back to the fifth Moor. McNIorney said that he remained around the Euclid avenue office until 6 o'clock that afternoon, and then the boxes were lowered by rope and tackle from one of the windows. He was assisted by four other employes of the company. The boxes were taken to the company's warehouse. They remained there until Monday. The witness said that about 10 o'clock Monday morning he and'a man named Moran took the books out of the boxes and burned them In the furnaces. There were nine boxes of books and six socks of papers. Some of the books were about twenty inches high and others were much smaller. McNierney said that the books that were burned Saturday morning were taken from the Euclid avenue offices Friday night. He received his orders to set the boxes from George Fields, the carshop foreman. HOY KILLS A; Deputy Sheriff Shot Down While Trying to Serve Le^al 1'aperi*. Chicago. Dc-c. 23.—Because he tried to serve legal papers on the boy's mother, Deputy Sheriff Frank E. Nye was shot and killed by 13-year-old Thomas George Crosby. The tragedy occurred at the Crosby boy's home, 1529 Wilson avenue, at 10 o'clock. Nye died twenty minutes ufter the bullet from his slayer's revolver entered his left breast. Heedless of the threats of the boy, which he thought were made In bravado, Nye, with five companions, tried to force an entrance into the Crosby house by tearing out a window. As a board with which a hole in the window was guarded fell away the report of a revolver from the Inside of the house rang out, and the next moment the deputy sheriff fell backward into the arms of William McComb, one of his companions. As he fell he uttered the words, "I'm shot, boys." and lapsed Into unconsciousness. He died twenty minutes later without regaining his senses.

It is significant how unanimous men and women in professional life, whether actors, editors, teachers or physicians, are in regard to Paine's celery com- ponnd. As a nerve tonic for the exhausting strain of their professional duties nothing else does the work of Paine's celery compound. A testimonial taken at random from the Many that are constantly received from the theatrical profession, says: New York City, Sept. 25,1898. Wells, Richardson & Co., Gentlemen:—If others have been helped by Paine's celery compound as decidedly as in my caae I do not wonder at tho enthusiastic testimonials this remedy Is constantly receiving. If I had never heard a word as to its remarkable invigorating capability, I could unhesitatingly recommend it from my own experience. As a fact, many of my professionrl friends have been urging me to try Paine's celery compound. It proved to be the very thing my tired system needed to overcome the exhausting effects of close application to stage work. I am recommending it to all my friends whenever they complain of sleeplessness, indigestion or other indications of nervonsesa common in our profession. I am, yoers sincerely, KATHBEINE KIDDBK.
