LONDON. Oct. 18. CommentinR upon
the activity of the Boers and the state
ment from Cape Town that Lord Roberta
has postponed his home-coming', the
"There are certain indications point
ing to the conclusion that unexpected dif
ficulties have arisen "which Lord Roberts
deems grave enough to delay his return
for some time to come. The facts sug
gest that it is impossible yet to denude
South Africa of any substantial portion
of the large army now engaged in dom

The editorial finally calls for the se
verest measures against irreconcilable
Boers, "prompt and ruthless punishment

Lord Roberts Thaala Him for Hia
LONDON, Oct. 15. Lord Roberts, in an
enny order announcing the return of
General Buller to England, thanks Sir
Redvers for his gallant service while he
was Commander-in-Chief of the British
forces in South Africa, and for the abll
dty with which he carried but the opera
tions while serving under Lord Roberts,
which, the order declares, "resulted in
tfihe collapse of the Boers in. the Eastern
Work for Him la England.
NEW YORK, Oct 15. General Buller's
impending return from South Africa is
understood to be due to a rather unex
pected call upon his services in reorganiz
ing the army service corps, says the Lon
don correspondent of the Tribune. His
experience in South Africa of the many
defects of the existing organization has
led to the authorities asking him to put
the system under which the corps conducts
its work on a proper footing.
It is now the general belief that to
General Kitchener, who is a favorite of
Lord Salisbury, will be given the task
of maintaining order In the Transvaal
and Orange River Colony.
The South African mining companies
have been bitterly disappointed by the
delay in ending the military campaign.
They sent their engineers and agents to
Cape Town when Pretoria was occupied
and there they have remained in idleness
month after month. A dozen engineers,
representing the largest mining Interests,
have heen allowed to go to Johannesburg
and report on the condition of the plants;
pumping operations have not been re
sumed and miners and natives cannot be
employed until the railways are prepared
to carry cool and supplies on a large scale.
The railways barely suffice for the needs
of the army, and it Is not believed that
the mines oan be operated with' efficiency
before the end of six months. It may be
12 months before returns are received
from the immense mass of caprhvl invest
ed in the Tnansvaal.
Startling: Account of the Doings of

PRETORIA, Thursday. Oct 1L Tho
TransvaaJ concessions committee opened
its sessions today. Lord Roberts' proc
laim tion. granting the commission power
to compel the attendance of witnesses,
was read. The first witness was Herr
ICretechmar, managing director of the
3Cetherlands Railway, who had tried to
evade attending. He gave a startling ac
count of the doings, of the company be
fore and during the war. especially In the
matter of blowmg up bridges in order to
stop the British advance, and in assist
ing the Transvaal Government in other
Boer Attacks on Railway.
LONDON, Oct 16. The Durban corre
spondent of the Standard, wiring yester
"Railroad communication north of Stan
derton has been suspended since Thurs
day. There are persistent rumors of Boer
attacks on the railway. Considerable un
easiness has been caused by the post
ponement of Lord Roberts' departure."
The Queen will appoint Lord Roberts
to be honorary Colnel of the new regi
ment of Irish Guards. The -Mayor of
Liverpool has received a dispatch from
Lord Roberts, saying that he will be
unable to attend to receive tho freedom

LONDON, Oct, 15. The Duke of Marl

or 500,000, according to others, to the
Duchess as a "thank offering" for the
Duke's safe return from the war. The
Duke and Duchess of Marlborough have
been annoyed by the congratulations that
iave swollen their past fortnight's mail.
Marine Disaster at Cape Town.

CARNIVAL OF BAD MAJTNERS. l
Englishmen Are Glad the Elections
NEW YORK. Oct, 15. A dispatch to tho
Tribune from London says:
There are many signs of public
relief over the close of the can
vass. While it has been a short
canvass, there has been much bitterness.
Old politicians describe it as a carnival
of bad manners and evil passions. Two
members of the Ministry have been
charged with having a financial Interest
in Government contracts. Members of
the opposition have "been arraigned as
traitors. There have been challenges to
libel suits and honorable members of Par
liament have called one another liars -and
the CoJonlal Secretary has been repeatedly
portrayed as a craven statesman who
condoned Cecil Rhodes' guilt because he
knew that the bundle of incriminating let
ters would be read in the Commons if he
failed to do so.
The ordinary amenities of public life
have been suspended and it hafe been a
low-toned canvass with many breaches
of good taste and fair play. Well-bred
Englishmen shrug their shoulders and con.
fess that the standards of party politics,
have 'been lowered by offensive personali
ties and malignant assaults. What was
designed by the Ministers as a patriotio
khaki revel has degenerated Into a cam
paign of defamation. The influence of the
canvass upon the personal fortunes of
Mr. Chamberlain is now the chief topic
of political circles. Nobody denies that
ho has been ferociously and wantonly at
tacked, and that the Birmingham coun
ties. Lancashire and the country gen
erally have stood "by him and vindicated
Sum. It is also admitted even by his ad
mirers that in forcing the fighting and
resenting foul aspersions he has erred
in Judgment and committed a 'breach of
Mr. Labouchere is not treated seriously
even when he drags Abel Thomas forward
as the custodian of the fncrimtnating let
ters, which were not read in the Com
mons because Mr. Hawksley's patient was
paired. Thomas and Hawksley are both
Radicals and do not like Mr. Chamber
lain, but they are also solicitors, and not
likely to be so unprofessional as to forget
their client's Interest for the sake of sup
porting Labouchere's charge.
The stale accusations against Mr. Cham
berlain lose much of their force when it
is remembered that Labouchere has been
smarting under provocations when his
own letters were dug up in South Africa
and brought to light by the Colonial Of
fice. The Latest Returns.

MARCHING IS RESUMED
STRIKERS ATTEMPT TO CLOSE

HAZDETON, Pa., Oct 15.-The threat

Valley started from this section tonight
The objective points of the marchers ana
Lansford, In Carbon County, and Coal
dale, In Schuylkill County. These towns
are about 20 miles south of Hazleton, and
the strikers expect to reach their des
tination early tomorrow morning. Most
of the collieries In that section are oper
ated by tho Lehigh Valley Coal & Navi
gation Company. They have been woite
lng all through the strike, despite the
efforts of numerous organizers sent to
that section for tho purpose of getting" the
men to quit
Troops on the Way.
SHENANDOAH, Pa., Oct 15. Advices
have reached General Gobln, in command
of the State troops here, that a large bbdy
of marching strikers have left McAdoo
for the Panther Creek region. They ex
pect to reach that valley In time to in
tercept the miners on their way to work
in the morning. General Gobln ordered
six companies of the Fourth Regiment
to leave tonight for the valley, and a
special train on the Philadelphia & Read
ing was provided to take them to Tam
aqua, which station is but a few miles
from Coaldale. General Gobln went with
the troops and assumed personal com
mand. The Governor's troop of cavalry,
which Is stationed at Oneida, will leave
for the Panther Creek region early In

leaving, said he was requested by Sheriff

Do Not- Consider the Miners' Pro
posals as Satisfactory.
NEW YORK, Oct. 15. Whether or not
the demand made by the miners will be
granted by the operators Is a question
upon which definite Information is not
obtainable In this city. Efforts
were made to see W. H. Truesdale, presi
dent of the fDelaware, Lackawanna &
Western Railroad; E. B. Thomas,, presi
dent of the Erie Railroad, and Alfred Wal
ter, president of the Lehigh Valley, but
reporters who visited their homes were
informed that all three of them were
away from town,. "
The coincidence of their absence from
the city upon the same day led to the
presumption that they had been called
away to attend some conference to con
sider tho men's demands, but other offi
cials of the companies who were seen pro
fessed to have no knowledge of the hold
ing of any meeting by the heads of the
coal-carrying railroads. The three com
panies referred to' will be largely con
cerned In any decision that may be reach
ed as to the acceptance or refusal of the
terms formulated, by the strikers. An
other dominant factor in the deliberations
of the operators who control the situa
tion would be R. M. Ollphant, president
of the Delaware -& Hudson Coal Com
pany, but he Is lying seriously 111 at his
home in this city, and can take no part
In tho controversy. ,
Some "of the individual operators .who
were seen said that they had no -idea of
what attitude the railroads would take,
but they agreed that whatever'aotion was
determined ..upon by the coal-carrying
roads would of necessity receive the
acquiescence of the individual mlneown
ers. More than one of the Independent
operators expressed the opinion that the
railroads would not agree to arbitration,
inasmuch as such an agreement would be
one-sided In the face of the readiness
which the men had manifested, as shown
in the instance of the employes of the
Markle mine, to disregard, when it suit
ed their purpose, contracts which provide
for the settlement of disputes by arbitra
"Nor do I think," one of the independ
ent operators said, in discussing the sit
uation, "that the mlneowners will consent
to bind themselves to pay 'so large an In
crease until April 1, when the falling off
In the demand for coal, which always
occurs in the Spring, might very greatly
"While I do not think that the demand
to abolish the sliding scale would In it
self be rejected by the operators, if that
had been the only additional concession
asked for, I am inclined to believe that
the answer' of the railroads to the meri
will be that they have made their offer,
and will not go beyond It, or, in other
words, the miners must either be con
tented with the present proffered advance
of 10 per cent In wages, or remain idle."
DISTRESS IN THE COAl FIELDS.
Want and Ruin Have Followed in
the Wolce of the Strike.
NEW YORK, Oct. 15. A special to the
World from Hazleton, Pa,, says:
Want and ruin have followed In the
wake of the strike in the anthracite re
gion. Families who lived In comfort whi'e
the mines were in operation now feal
the pinch of privation, and the bare ne
cessities of existence seem like luxuries;
business men, upon whom prosperl'y
smiled, have been brought to the verge
of bankruptcy; thriving towns have be
come stagnant, casual travelers have for
saken them, and newspaper correspond
ents and labor leaders constitute the
most important element in the floating
population. The strikers who had some
little money on hand for an emergency
have cut their living expenses down to a
minimum, buying nothing but food, and
little of that. In many instances, they are
able to obtain some credit from local deal
ers, but the bills cannot run very high.
As there was little coal to be hauled,
the coal railroads had to lay off tho crews
of most of their coal trains. There are
auctually in the enormous yards at Mauch
Chunk several hundred coal cars which,
under normal conditions, should be scat
tered on railroads from the Atlantic to
the Pacific. In many towns it is now
impossible to obtain coal for domestic use
af any price.
The stagnation of trade here Is, of
course, felt by the manufacturers and'
wholesalers of the Eastern cities, who
furnish the supplies, and as the merchants
can. obtain no cash from their customers,
they must appeal to their creditors for
leniency. Appeals are being made to the
United Mlneworkers organization for
funds for the relief of the destitute strik
ers who can get no credit.

WIDKESBABRE, Pa., Oct 16. Operat

IN SOHUYIKIIiIi REGION.
Operators May Accept tho Conven
POTTSVDLLE, Pa., Oct, 15. The Schuyl
kill delegates to the Scranton convention
have returned, and the prevailing impres
sion Is that the collieries will soon be
at work, provided the operators agree
to the terms of that body. Among the
rank and file there Is an Inclination to
accept the decision of the convention. It
Is generally taken as a fact here that
the operators in the upper anthracite belt
will agree to the offer of the convention,
and that the miners there are eager to
go back to work at the advance which
their employers aro willing to pay.
In the Schuylkill region It will bo re
membered the men went out largely on a
sympathetic strike, and it Is believed they
will follow the miners of the upper belt
back to work, though many are dissatis
fied because, according to their reckon
ing, in accepting the 10 per cent advance
they are not getting all they are fighting
for. The convention demanded the aboli
tion of the sliding scale, by which the
Reading Company's 28,000 miners have
always been paid. This scale was fixed
according to the price of coal at Port
Carbon, and was always a small percent
age either above or below the ?2 50 basis.
The last scale fixed their wages 6 per
cent above the ?2 50 basis, and some mi
ners now argue that In reality they will
be getting only 4 per cent advance.
In contraditlon of this the leaders say
that they will get 10 per cent net, or
equal to 16 per. cent above the basis. On
the even $2 50 basis, outside laborers were
paid $8 10 a week, inside laborers, ?10 60
and miners 512 a week. If the company
agrees to the convention's offer to do
away with the sliding scale," then the men
would be paid exactly 10 per cent above
There are many things left unsettled
that no "doubt will lead to further con
tentions whilo these questions are being
arbitrated In the next few days. For" in
stance, the Reading Company-has been
charging $1 50 a. keg for powder, while in
the upper region the price has' been ?2 75.
The convention said nothing about this,
and in the Schuylkill region this com
.modlty may be Increased in.prlce to make
up for the 10 per cent increase. The Read
ing officials feel that they have been dis
criminated against by the settlement pro
posed by the Scranton convention.
Reading: Officials Will Take It Up.
PHmAJDELiPKEA, Oct 16. It Is expect
ed that the officials of the Beading Com.
pany will tomorrow take up for consid
eration the proposition of the mlnework
ers' convention. It Is known that some ot
the directors of tho company are opposed
to the abolishment of the sliding scale,
which has for years been In operation
at the Reading collieries. One of th&
directors of the Reading Company said
today that he Is opposed to a new wage
scale, and intimated that he would make
an effort to defeat such a proposition. Ha
said that the sliding scale had for years
proved satisfactory both to the company
and employes, as was evidenced by the
fact that until the convention at Scranton
demanded a change, no protest had come
from the company miners.

CASES WERE ADVANCED
INVOLVING NEW CONSTITU
Matter Pertainlnrr to Insular Posses
sions Will Be Heard by Supreme
Court November 12.
WASHINGTON, Oct 15. The Supreme
Court of the United States today granted
the motion of the Government to advance
the Neely cases and assigned them for
hearing November 12. The cases came
up from tho Federal Court of New York
on the decision of Judge Wallace denying
a writ of habeas corpus. Tho Government
is very anxious for a decision whloh will
settle the Constitutional Questions In
volved. The court also assigned for tho same
day the two cases which Involve the great
Question as to whether the Constitution
extends over the new possessions of tho
United States. One Is the case of Goetz,
a New York tobacco manufacturer, ap
pealing from a decision of the United
States Court for the southern district of
New York, affirming the decision of the
Board of General Appraisers making to
bacco dutiable under the Porto Rico tar
iff act The other came to the Supreme
Court under the tile "Four Diamond
Rings vs. the United States." It came
up on appeal from the Federal Court of
Illinois. One Peake. a soldier of a South
Dakota Regiment who served In the Phil
ippines, is claimant. When he returned
home from the Philippines he brought
with him the diamonds. They were af
terward seized by the Federal authorities
In Chicago and confiscated as smuggled
goods. Through Peake's agents, suit
was brought to recover them, on the
ground that as the Philippines were part
of the United States within the meaning
of the Constitution, and no impost could
bo levied, the diamonds were not dutiable,
and, therefore, were unlawfully seized.
The lower court. In both Instances, sus
tained tho action of the Federal authori
ties. The court today handed down several
decisions. In the case of Amelle Saxlh
ner vs. the Slegel-Cooper Company, Louis
Marquet, Alexander Nlelson and Rudolf
Gels (five actions), to enjoin the use of
tho trade-mark "Hunyadi," the court re
versed the decree of the United States
Court of ADoeals. Second District, and
remanded tho case to tho lower court for
the relnstallment of Its decision, except
as to the seizure of bottles and labels,
where the court held that the defense of
laches did not hold. The lower court had
found for the defendants on the ground of
laches abandonment The court laid down
the general rule In this case that wher
ever a trade-mark has become common
property there could be no cause for ac
tion. In the case of Oscar Looker et al. vs.
the Attorney-General of Michigan, Involv
ing the mode of electing directors for a
corporation (cumulative voting), the court
affirmed the decision of the. Supreme
Court of Michigan, that such voting did
not impair the obligation of contracts.
The case of Alice Weil vs. the United.
States was dismissed on motion of the
plaintiff, thus ending the legal side of
the famous litigation over the La Abra
mining claim, which was settled finally
by the deci&ion- of the court last Winter.
This case was the last one on the docket
relative to that claim.
The court advanced the case of Homer
Bird, who was convicted of murder by
the District Court of Alaska, to the sec
ond Monday in December. Bird Is from
New 'Orleans, and while on his way to
Alaska with some companions quarreled
with them over the division of food and
killed two of them. He was convicted of
murder, and now is before tho Supremo
iCourt as a plaintiff In error.

WASHINGTON, Oct. 15. The Navy Do
comes less, and the desire to hawk and j all the history of colds and catarrh ex
splt Is disappearing, the sense of taste Is tending downward from the nose to th-
returning, and the voice again becomes i throat, to glottis, to windpipe, to tlie
soft and melodious. There Is no more i bronchial tubes, and then Into the sma.ll
gagging and vomiting In the morning. No
longer does every exposure to the weather
result In a stuffed-up throat that becomes
"sore and Inflamed, and no longer does he
find his throat and tongue dry as chips
when he wakes from refreshing sleep.
How It Cures Deafness.
Here Is another patient who for years
had been a sufferer. Every fresh cold
seemed to stay longer than former colds,
and he 'noticed that his ears got stopped
up and his' hearing became duller and
duller, and there were ringing and buz
zing noises In his ears. The Catarrh had
passed upward and backward from the
throat along the Eustachian tubes leading
from the throat Into tho ear. He had
visited Throat doctors and Ear doctors
and Catarrh doctors, without relief. In
this condition we find him Inhaling the
never-falling medication, and soon he no
tices a change. The noises in, the ears
stop, there Is no more discharge, the
hearing gets better and finally the tubes
of the ears open up and something seems
to give way In the head. His hearing has
completely returned. No wonder ho con
siders the result a marvel.
How It Cures Bronchial Disease
Here Is another patient who was always
sensitive to the weather. He contracted
Catarrh of the Head, and It passed to the
Throat, then down the Windpipe and into
the Bronchial Tubes. He coughed at
night so that he could not sleep; there
was pain behind the breastbone and under
his shoulder-blades. When he coughed he
brought up a frothy, grayish material,
streaked with blood. He lost appetite and
strength. He tried cough syrups and dif
ferent medicines to no avail. He now
breathes In with full Inspiration the re
storing and soothing medicine. The sore
spots along the Bronchial Tubes heal, tho
cough ceases, the pain leaves. The appe
tite and strength return. He is again
a well and happy man.

ll riRtovr's Investigation.
NEW YORK, Oct. 15. A special to the
Herald from Washington says:
Since his return from the Investigation
of the Cuban postal frauds, Fourth As
sistant Postmaster Brlstow has been en
gaged in formulating the evidence to be
submitted by the department when those
arrested are brought to trial. The record
of every official, from Rathbone down,
has been gone Into, and the lives of all
before they became associated with the,
Cuban postal system have been investi
gated. Rathbone and Neely will bo vigorously
prosecuted. It Is hoped they will be
brought before a Judge rather than a
jury. Tho character of their alleged crime
makes them amenable to no set punish
ment, that being left to the Judge or Jury
under the Cuban law.
It Is practically decided that the ex-Dlrecter-Gcneral
shall bo tried on four
charges. Tho first charge will be that
through his negligence his subordinates
were enabled to cheat the Government.
Tho Cuban law makes Rathbone respon
sible for every cen taken by Neely and
others. The second charge is that Rath
bone took $1000 for which he never gave
vouchers. The third charge deals with
tho per diem allowances made ,to him
by the Postmaster-General. The fourth
charge deals with his extravagant ex
penditure of the Government funds.
Army and Navy Order.
NEW YORK, Oct. 15. A special to the
Herald from Washington says:
Secretary Long has decided not to order
home any of the marines now In the Phil
ippines. Instead, if more marines should
be available they will be sent to Manila.
Reinforcements are necessary because of
the contemplated reduction of General
MacArthur'8 command by the withdrawal
of the volunteers.
The War Department has practically
determined to adopt General Davis rec
ommendation and reduco the military
force in Porto Rico. The troops will be
brought to the United States and then
sent to Manila. Eight companies of the
Tenth Infantry, it is believed, can be
spared from the Island, and these will
make a welcome addition to General Mac
In order that there may be no inter
ruption of the practice work of the sub

been given to Lieutenant Caldwell, her
nnmrnnnfUnc- officer, to take her from
Newport to Annapolis. She will bo able
to atari out from the Naval Academy In
all seasons, and her crew will nave am
ple opportunity to become acquainted
with tho operation of the vessel.
No Idiota Admitted.
NEW YORK, Oct. 15. S. M. Mulne, a
Philadelphia shoemaker, sent to Russia
for his wife and five children. They ar
Tlved at Ellis Island several days ago and
were detained because one of the children,
a girl 8 years old, was an Imbecile.
The law prohibits absolutely the admit
tance of an Insane person or an idiot Into
this country. A brother of the woman,
named Hodes, of Youngstown, O., saw
Assistant Secretary of the Treasury Tay
lor and arranged that Mulne should take
the Idiot back to Russia while Mrs. .Mulne
and the four healthy children should go
with him to his home In Youngsown.
Assistant Secretary Taylor ?aid that un
der no circumstances could the "hlM ho
brought Into this country. If the father
was able to give bond to the amount of
a million dollars that tne child would
be well taken care of and that it would
never become a public inarge It would
have no effect, as the law mtkes-no pro
visions for the entering of Idiots.
