With a Ringing Send-Off From New

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., April 15.
(Special.) President Roosevelt Is making
himself at home at Camp No. 1, about
two and a. half miles southwest of New
castle, a little town 12 miles northwest of
this place. This morning the departure of
his troop of mounted, men and hounds .and
guns made a picturesque spectacle, as the
cavalcade wound along the trail on the
side of the mountain near Newcastle. Be
sides the 400 or 500 natives, a large num
ber of Denver newspaper reporters and
railroad men. witnessed his departure. The
President is threatened with unwelcome
visftsfrom over-cnterprlslng reporters,
but he has given them all ample warn
ing, and. should they meet with hard
ships along ibe trail, it will be their own
The native population is disposed to
leave the President by himself. He shook
hands this morning with most of them,
and, although they were disappointed bo
cause he did not afford an exhibition of
broncho-busting, they voted him a good
fellow and wished him a successful hunt.
A rancher brought to town a ragged
looking black bear cub and tried to get
Jake Borah, the guide, to purchase It and
turn it loose for the President to chase
and shoot. Naturally the offer was de
clined. Jn fact, the danger to the hunt
Is that It Is yet early In the season, and
the grizzly bears, the ones who can af
ford the best sport, are In all probability
still holed up In the snow. One, however,
does not realize this here, where the grass
on the lawn is green and a hundred peo
ple are bathing in a great open-air pool
of warm water.
He Goes Well Armed.
Incidentally It is well known that Mr.
KooBevelt is hot going to take any daring
chances in this hunt. In spite of lurid
stories that. he. is going to kill the bears
with a hunting-knife, he actually took
with him both a rifle and a heavy re
volver, and will rely upon these to bring
down the game.
The party has with it about 20 hounds.
big, husky ones, which look as If they
could give a good account of themselves
in an encounter with almost any kind of
animal. If the bears fall to appear, the
hunt will be given up to bobcats and
The hunting party is about as isolated as
it could be in any part of the United
States. Newcastle, while easily accessible
on the Colorado Midland, offers little
comfort for the wayfarer at this time of
year. Every peak surrounding the village
is covered with enow, and the roads to
the southward toward the Penny ranch
are hard to travel. In addition, the camp
Is well guarded, and so large a tract has
been reserved for the President's pleasure
that other hunting outfits would be turned
back if found trespassing. Colorado news.
papers have published editorials advis
ing that the President be let alone to en
joy hlmsolf to the utmost.
Cut Off From Communication.
Before starting up the trail to the camp
the President told his friends not to wor
ry if they did not hear from him for
three or four days at a time, as he ex
pected to have something more to do
than write messages'. Helpers at the
camp are expected often to come to the
near-by villages, for supplies, and tales
of the hunt will be brought -out by them.
Without this limited means of communi
cation, the President might remain in tho
mountain fastnesses for w'eeks and noth
ing be heard from him. Instructions have
been given. If anything is wanted of the
President during the time he is on his
hunt, to apply to Mr. Loeb. So well have
the departments in Washington taken
care of XSovernmental affairs that Mr.
Ixeb's mall has been light ever since
starting out, nearly two weeks ago.

Brass Band Hunt Called Off.
The parade planned to. take place here
today did not materialize. It had been
arranged to form a procession led by the
miners' brass band, a caged bear and the
President's party on horseback. This
pageant was to pass through the village
streets and into the hills, where the bear
was to be turned loose and given a start
of 30 minutes. The State Humane Society
broke up the plans on the grounds that
the bear might return to the village and
carry off some of the children. It had
been caged so long that It was quite
vicious. After the Humane Society had

to sell it to Guides Goff and Borah, but

VOTES CENSURE ON PREMIER
Hungarian Diet Stand Firm in Con

BUDAPEST. April 15. The lower house
of the Diet today passed the motion of
Herr Eotov for a vote of censure on ex
Premier Tlsza for being actuated by polit
ical motives in raising the pension of the
late President of the House Perczol von
Bonyhad from $1600 to $3000. The motion
was carried by a large majority. The
house then adjourned until May 3.
The solution of the Ministerial crisis Is
delayed meanwhile. The united opposition
shows no signs of weakening in its de

the crown give evidence of a tendency to
withdraw from Its previous utterances or
attitude. The situation, consequently, is
serious, to say the least. Hungary feels
she Is now combatting Austria politically
for the recognition of certain external
rights which mean much to her national
existence, the loss of which would se
rlously threaten her future independence
and lead to a state of affairs between
Austria and Hungary which Hungary
could not accept with tranquillity.
Therefore, the Hungarians aro very like

concessions from tne crown, each one of
which would mean to Increase Hungarian
Independence of Austria, as well as a step
toward ultimate complete Hungarian na

LONDON, April 15. (Special.) King
Edward's strong desire that there

London until the crisis In the Far East
is passed is understood to explain the
extraordinary efforts of the Ministe
rlalists to unite their factions upon
a fighting programme. All the week the
Times, Standard and Morning Post, the
only papers with which Mr. Balfour
will confess himself familiar, have
been urging him to confer with Jo

combined and aggressive action. The
Unionists are terribly tired of being
on the defensive.
Mr. Balfour Is above most men loyal,
The wishes of the King are consulted

little 'doubt that he would have laid

British Interests are so threatened.
They 'do not wish to shoulder the bur
den of the Anglo-Japanese alliance.
Lord Rosebery has consented to take
the foreign portfolio If the Liberals
form a Cabinet under Spencer .and he
has announced his full adhere'nee to
the pact with Japan. But Rosebery has
enjomvd his following not to embarrass

Damascus-Nazrlb railroad, and Insures
continuous French control of the road
and also accords as damages $320,00J

feature of the irade Is an agreement

fired three shots. With a cry that he
was murdered, the man fell In the grass,
but when the officer went to the spot ha
