Louis Strucks,' an employee of Smith, Bourne & Co., of Hartford, today brought suit agamst the Rev Joseph E. Seneaac, pastor of St. An ne s rvoman atnoiic cnurcn, m this city, v for llo.OOO. Strucks charges Father Senesac with alien ating the affections of . his wife, The papers, which were served to day, mak the case returnable be- fore the superior court of Hartford csqty on the first Monday in Sep tern ber. mrs. strucKS is a pretty woman of twenty-six. Her husband is nearly 5o. , Father Senesac is a handsome man of 38. Strucks in his complaint, says his wife first met the priest at a church fair in Hartford in the -winter of 19oo. He declares that the wrong-doing of the pair began August 1, 19oo, and has continued up to the ' present time.' He Bays that when he first discovered it he drove hia wife from his home and started out to shoot the priests Friends who learned of his plan prevented the shooting. He says he brings suit only in or der that Feather Senesac may be ex posed aDd punished. : Father Senesac, who comes of an old Montreal family and who has made several pilgrimages to Rome, was declared not at borne when a World reporter called at the paroch ial residence this afternoon. - His intimate friends in the parish de clared that the chafges were un true. As far, as is known he has retaioed noeounsel. Bishop Tierney is out of the state in consequence of which it cannot be learned what attitude thechnreh authorities intend to adopt. Washington, Aug. 9. In probing toe transactions or Ueorge W. fieav ere as superintendent of the divi eion of salaries and allowances the postoffice department, the noat office inspectors are endeavoring to find out whether he held, any stock m xaqui copper Uomnauy. and 60 now ne got it. I he inspectors are also anxious to learn whether the former chief clerk to the First Assistant Postmaster-General, Joh M'j. Masten, has any stock in thi company. - ,lhe reason for thi3 is that the Yaqui Copper company was organ lzed about the time the Dostoffice department executed the contract to buy time clocks from th RnnrW Manufacturing company at $loo to $ 125 each. The clocks sold on the market for from $6a to $75. A connecting link has been dis covered in the fact that George E Green, a Binghampton (N. Y.) pol itician, was the prime mover in the Yaqui Copper company, and that R. B. Brown, a Washington ". attor ney, is a director Brown represented the DeyTime Register company, whose register was highly regarded by the post- omc otnciais up to the time Mr, T 1 . ... - rJ9n ceasea to represent it, and the; Bandy, company secured the contract without competition or ad vercismg . by the . department. It waa about this time the Yaqui Cop per; company was organized and, crown became a director. Before resigning as superintend ent' Beavers denied having had any part in executing the contract and cast all the blame on Masten, who signed it as acting first assistant postmaster-general, but former in timacy between Beavers and Green, coupled with the information that Beavers holds or has held Yaqui Copper stock, has led to suspicion tbtj Beavers .attempted to . shield himself behind Masten. and that he he knows why the clock contract was signed quite as well as Masten does. - What became of the $4o to $5o difference between the market price and that paid for, the clocks is of interest to the inspectors, this being the now famous "4o per cent." The possibility that Beavers obtained stock in the copper compauy com pany as a return for favors to the time clock company is not being overlooked. New York, Aug. 14. The latest trust is the tailoring, trust, and Charles M. Schwab, the BteelKing, is. oenind it. 1 he facts came out today, when P. A. Schwab, an un- cle of the ex-president of the steel trust, and David J. Welch, for ma ny years right-hand man of the big woolen mill concern, began to make contracts on a mammoth scale. tJotn these men have spent many years in this line of business and are experts.. , ' . , . . Charles M. Schwab is known to have millions invested in several enterprises outside of the steel trust, dui it, was witn j great surprise' it was learned be is to supply the e- normoua capital to operate; the gi gantic combination in the tailoring Dusiness now in , process of , lorma- tion. . . " The trust under the name of the United Tailors,- will begin opera tions August 22 in New York City, opening seven stores simultaneous- ibese will be increased from day to day until 100 retail branches are established in Greater New York, where there are already 12,- 000 tailors. : - Branches will be immediately es tablished in large cities throughout the country and extended as quick ly as possible to every city in the Union of 20,000 inhabitants. Port land, Tacoma, Seattle ,San Francis co and Los Angeles are the first of the Coast cities to be invaded.

Disappointment Settles Over the Island People Who Suffered a Year Ago Are v Again Homelees Oth er News. . Washington, Aug. 11. The death-dealing cyclone which visit ed ill-fated Martinique last Satur- day was more disastrous than at first believed. Consul Jewell, from Fort de France, Martinique, cables the state department the following: "A. terrinc cyclone visited the isl and at midnight Saturday. Great damage was done crops and fruits. Scores of houses here at Fort de France are demolished, t Trees two feet in diameter are uprooted. One person is killed. , The American consulate is intact. Seven were killed at Trinate and several houses were destroyed. The new villages of Tiyol, Food, Lahaye, rurnicle8 and Keciusee were de stroyed, thus rendering, 5,000 vic tims of last years catastrophe again homeless. Reports from the interi or of the island are indefinite, but great discouragement is apparent on every hand. Chicago, Aug. 10. Great com ment was occasioned here today by General Miles, who gave an ex tended interview on . his - views of armies and war. The retired gen eral said that he did not hesitate to say that standing armies are' ene mies to republicanism and the peace of the world. He went further and stated . that the aristocracy more particularly desired an army, but that their re ten tion was a tax on the people which would be eliminated to the well-being of all democratic forms of government. The general said that war is ab horrent,. and human intelligence denounces it. "I advocate a congress of powers and the adoption of the rule that one soldier . is enough for ' each thousand inhabitants. 'Let soldiers become artisans and farmers," said General Miles "add thus relieve the world of a mil ion parasites whose sole business is useless war. The armies of the world are artificial, and if main tained will eventually cause disas ter." . , . ;: -. Accompanying General Miles on hia westward trip is a considerable partv of veterans, including Gener al UlacK and General Maus, who is going to Fort Reno to assume com mand. , ' .. The statement of General Miles and his strong advocacy of elimina tioo of the army has caused a marked stir in all industrial and commercial circles. : New, York, August ic The World says: The ' History of the Carnegie Steel Combine" by Mr. Bndge.'formerly secretary to Mr, Carnegie, just 1 published a letter written by Mr. Schwab, ex-presi dent of the Bteel trust to Mr. H, C. Frick on May i5, 1899, is printed. Mr. Frick waa at that time . trjing to form a syndicate of capitalists to purchase the Carnegie steel plants, and Mr Schwab's letter was intended to assist him. In , the letter the following' passage con taining statements 01 t public in terest, occurs: As to the future, even on low prices. I ; am most sanguine. . I know positively that England cannot produce plg-tron at the actual for les3 than $11-50 per ton even allowing no profit on raw materials, and cannot put plg-lron Into a rail with their mos t efficient works for less thao $7.S0 a ton. This would make rails at net cost to them at $19, We can sell at this price and ship abroad so as to net us (16 at - works' fof foreign business nearly as good as home busi ness has been. What is true of rails is equally true of other steel products, As a result of this we are going to control the steel business of the world, You know we can make raUs for less : than $12 per ton leaving a nice ' margin on , foreign business, Besides tnls, foreign costs are going to Increase year by year-because they have not the raw material, while ours is going to de crease, , The result of all this Is that we will be aMe to sell out surplus abroad, run pur works full all the time and get the best practice and costs In this way, At the date of this letter tarriff duties of' $4 -per. ton' on Die-iron and $& per ton on steel rails were being levied at all-our ports; They are still being levied. Yet we have Mr. Schwab's authority, than which none could b9 higher, for eayiog that pig-iron could not be produced in England for less thaa $il.5o per ton nor steel rails for less than $ig per ton, while steel rails were being made at lees than $12 per ton by the Carnegie Com pany, and could be marketed in England below the English price; at a net profit of $4 per ton. At the same time the. average price of steel tails to American purchas ers was $28 per. ton $9 per ton higher than the price Mr. Schwab declared his, company, conld sail them for in England, "leavin a. nice margin." Much more is imolied in Mr- Schwab's further admission that "what is true of rails is, equally trnp nrnfhsr atool nenAnnta n rpL: means that all of the Dingley steel " " w " wvu iwuuuuo, A 11X9 uuiieB in io!f were duties not tor revenue, not for protection, bnt for extortion only. No British made steel whether in rails or in other forms, cocld have competed with I American-made steel, in. I899 so Mr. Schwab said if all the Ding ley duties on steel had bet n re peal ed. The same condition of things ." exists today, for as Mr. Schwab says, "foreign costs of production have be,en increasing .while Amer ican costs of production have been increasing while American costs of production have been growing . less -year by year." Over 2,000.000 tons of steel rails alone are being annually , conoum ed in the United States," to . Bay nothing of other steel products. The $8 per ton levied thereon, . solely for the purpose of affording a sneiter lor monopoly' amounts to : a levy of $1 6,000,000 a year on the American people. In the light of . Mr. Schwab's letter, it is easy to see why the steel, trust is gather ing in profits of more than $120,000 000 a year on the sale of its up ward of 10,000,000; tons of iron and . and steel products. , , It is strange that the beneficiar- ' ies of this tariff for extortion only should believe with Mr Hanna. that the only way to psrserve pros peritytheir prosperity at least is to "stand pat" and "let well enough alone?" Dysentery Cured Without the Aid of a Doctor. "I am just up from a hard spell of the flux" (dyeentery) says Mr. T A Spinner, a well-known mer chant of Drummoned, Tenn. "I used one email bottle of Chamber lain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy and was cured ' without having a doctor. I consider it the beet cholera medicine in the world.' , There is no need of employing adoc tor when this remedy is used, for . no doctor can preecribe a better medicine for bowel complaint in any lorm either for children or adults. It never fails and is pleas ant to take. For sale by Allen & Wordward. . REDUCED RATES. To the Seaside and Mountain Re sorts for the Summer.
