"There are no other apartment on thia

MILLION DOLLAR FRAUD.
Hundreds of People All Over ih Country
Buncoed Out of Savings.
Boston, Oct. - 30. In connection
with what the United States mar
shal's office declares to be one of tbe
biggest frauds they ever had to deal
with in this city, members of the
firm of J. C. Fisher & Co., brokers,
were arrested today on a charge of
using tbe United States mail in a
scheme to defraud. It is alleged that
$1,000,000 has been taken from the
public since January 1, 1900.
The method of the firm is said by
the authorities to have been very
simple. People all over the country,
it is alleged, were written to and told
what exceptional chances there were
to invest money, and that large re
turns could be expected. Pools were
formed and those desirous ol getting
rich quickly were invited to re
mit. After two or three weeks, it is
said, investors would be advised that
pool had been formed on a well-
known stock and that as the quota
tions had gone down the margin had
been swept away, and that more
money was necessary immediately in
order to save the stock. After bar
ing put in two or three times the
original stock, some investor became
suspicious and called the attention
of the authorities to the matter.
ON CONSERVATIVE LINES.
Work of Board Reorganizing Chines Govern
mentStudy Western Methods.
Washington, Oct. 30. The state
department has received from Minis
ter Conger at Fekin, a translation of
series of preliminary regulations
adopted by the recently organized
Chinese Board of National Adminis
tration, charged with the reorganiza
tion of that government on moderu
and efficient lines. The sentiments
expressed are conservative, says Mr.
Conger, and it is made plain that
there is no intention to imitate the
too brisk pace set by the reformers
of 1898, but instead to study West
ern methods and, without adopting
Western civilization as a whole, to
adaot to Chinese conditions such ins
titutions as seem likely to add
strength to the state.

he did not make the deposit. To

Czolgosz passed quiet night. He
slept nearly all night. He awoke
finally at 4:45 o'clock.
He suffered a sight nervous attack

and stoic up to the time the prison
closed at 10 o'clock. He refused to
heed the words of tbe priests who
came to urge spiritual preparation
for death and declined to re-embrace
Roman Catholicism or to renounce
anarchism. Czolgoss 'showed no
strength of love lor kin, nor did he

thoughts of men occupying his posi
