They are directed to arrest all agitators,
to search the houses of suspects, to close

Several Sharp Engagements.
NEW YORK, Nov. 2. The first band
of Carllsts which appeared 3-t Badalona,
40 strong, has been dispersed, says a dis
patch to the Herald from Barcelona.
That in the neighborhood of Iqualada,
which also consisted of men, had an
engagement with the civil guard, of whom
two were wounded, one mortally. In an
engagement between -100 "partldas," In
the environs of Berga, and the civil guard
of Mezos Escuadra, two Insurgents wero
killed. Troops, both cavalry and infan
try, are pursuing them. A new "partlda,"
of 14 men, has appeared at Kavents
Bridge, near Berga. Three depots of
arms and equipments have been discov
ered at Barcelona. The Carllst clubs
have been closed.
The Government follows the Carllst
movement with the greatest attention,
says o. dispatch from Madrid. Senor
Ugarte, Minister of the Interior, in an
interview. Insists that In the manifesta
tions which have taken place, there is
no chief directing the "partldas." Gen
eral Unares. the military officer, at
taches no Importance to the outbreak at
Barcelona. The movement, he asse ts, is
without Importance. Everything, how
ever, has been foreseen, even the improb
able case of an important "pronuncla
mento." General Azcarraga, President of
the Council, takes the same view of the
movement as the Ministers of the Interior
and of War. Senor Vasquez Hella, the
chief of the Carllst party, and ex-member
of the Cortes, who Is at present In
Madrid, disapproves of the movement,
whloh. he declares, Is of no importance.
In military circles, the only Importance
that Is attached to the rising Is that It
may be a test of the fidelity of certain
On the French Frontier.
PARIS, Nov. 2. Advices from the
French Pyrenees say agitation still ex
ists across the frontier. Two gendarmes
and two Carllsts were killed at Baga and
Berga. Owing to the appearance of sev
oral new bands of Carllsts, the gendarmes
of Baga and other districts have been
obliged to concentrate at Puycerda. A
number of Carllsts have sought refuge
la the -mountain and forests of Upper
Catalonia, where it is difficult to d s odgj
them. The French frontier populat on Is
asking for troops to prevent incursions.
THE SOUTH AFRICAN CAMPAIGN.
respite Boer Activity, Roberts Will
Soon Lenrc for Knclnnd.
IiONDON. Nov. 3. The South African
situation Is Improving, and Lord Roberts
will shortly return to England with a
majority of his staff. Arrangements are
being made In Cape Town" to send the
batqh of refugees back to Johannesburg,
and accommodation is being provided at
Bloerafonteln for a garrison of 7000.
Nevertheless, the activity of the Boers
continues. October 26 a commando of 900
captured a garrison of 30 men at Redders
burg, but afterwards released them.
Trains from the south to Pretoria are at.
tacked by Boers almost dally. October 24
the burghers occupied Koffeyfontoln. On
the other hand, General Knox has In
flicted a reverse on General Dewet's force
near Parys. capturing two guns, one of
them a weapon lost by the British In the
Eannas Post affair.
The dally tale of British casualties Is
heavy. In October the British lost 167
killed In action. Including 15 officers, 71
who died of wounds, S67 who died of
disease. 286 who died of accidents, and 97
captured or missing, a total almost equal
to the monthly average for the duration
of the war.
The Dally Express publishes sensa
tional statements that the Boer revival
Is more serious than has hitherto been
believed, and that. In consequence. Lord
Roberts return Is likely to be still fur
ther postponed. It says also that no con
siderable part of the troops will return
before January or February, while the
regimental drafts from England will con
tinue, and that 5000 horses will be sent
out. The paper definitely declares that
the Boers are well armed and abundant
ly supplied with ammunition, and that
the campaign Is likely to last another six
month". In the best-informed quarters,
however, it Is asserted that there is no
ground for the pessimism of the Dally

SALISBURY'S NEW CABINET.
It Is More
NEW YORK, Nov 2. A dispatch to the
Journal and Advertiser from London says:
The presidency of the Board of Trade,
left vacant by the retirement of Mr.
Ritchie to the Home Office, has not yet
been announced. The appointment of Mr.
Ritchie as Home Secretary affords new
hope to the friends of Mrs. Maybrlck,
who say Sir Matthew Whlte-Rldley, the
retiring Home Secretary, was prejudiced.
Ritchie is a practical business man. un
bound by red tape or old prejudices and
an appeal wilt be made to him soon.
The new Cabinet is largely a family af
fair. Balfour, who continues as First
Lord of the Treasury and leader In the
House of Commons, and Gerald Balfour,
who. while not In tho. Cabinet, is Chief
Seorstary for Ireland, are Salisbury's
nephews, while Lord Selborne, the new
First Lord of the Admiralty, is Salisbury's
son-in-law. Landsdowne, who was such
failure aa Secretary of State for War,
is made Foreign Minister, because he Is
the leader of aristocratic society and Sal
isbury's friend. Bo will simply 'relieve
the old Premier of the routine work, for
Salisbury will manage all important for

It Is probable that Sir "William Court
Gully, Speaker of the House of Commons,
will be deposed, oesplte the custom of al

party. Gully Is a Liberal, chosen under
Gladstone, and the Conservatives are so
elated by their victory in the country that
they are determined to rule everything.
So Gully1 will be forced to retire and Sir
Matthew White-Ridley, late Homo Secre
tary, will take his place.

brief, simple and stately.
A VALUABLE REPORT. .
"Narratives of Military- Exploration
WASHINGTON, 'Oct. CO. In the course
of a few months the Government Print
ing Office will turn out one of the most
aluable reports that has gone through
its presses in years. It will be known
as Senate Report 1023, made by Senator
Carter, of Montana, and will comprise
almost entirely a compilation of "Narra
tives of Military Exploration in Alaska."
This report will be more than average
size, and aside from nearly 900 pages of
reading matter, will be profusely Illus
trated by photographs taken by the dif
ferent military exploring parties 'in recent
years. The scope of this work was :e
cently outlined la the Oregonlan.
The Introduction ta the report, aside
from summing up the results of these
exploring parties, goes into a short dis
cussion of the question of routes of
travel, both constructed and contem
plated, of which the following is said:
"The development or routes of travel
Into the Interior of Alaska has been, to
within the past few years, extremely slow.
The one route of travel, prior to the min
ing excitements that have brought this
country prominently before the public,
was that up the Yukon River. As the re
sult of over 30 years' exploration and re
search by the "War Department, the choice
of lines of travel over American territory
Into the Interior of Central Alaska points
to three different routes Tho most north
ern, and heretofore most extensively used,
Is that from the Pacific Coast States by
sea to the mouth of the great Yukon
River, that empties Into the southern
part of Norton Sound. This voyage
through the Pacific, Bchrlng Sea and the
southern part of Norton Sound Is avail
able as a means of transportation for traf
fic Into the interior of Alaska from May
to November. From St. Michael, near the
mouth of the Yukon, will be found river
steamers of about the same general char
acter as those used In the earlier history
of the navigation of the Mississippi and
Missouri by the overland emigrant to Ore
gon. This means of transportation Is
available from the middle of June, when
the lco passes out of the Yukon River,
until the middle of September, when Its
northern tributaries begin to congeal and
the flow of Ice precludes further naviga
tion. "The second route available today is
that through the Gulf of Alaska and Cook
Inlet to the mouth of the Mldnooskl River,
from which point an overlmd route Is
available to the lower Tanana Valley.
This route Is available from the latter part
of April to the Middle of November. The
headwiters of Cook Inlet are of a char
acter that renders navigation for ocean
going steamers extremely difficult.
The All-Anterlcan Route.
"The third and by far the most desir
able route Is that through the Gulf of
Alaska and Prince Wllllim Sound Into
the waters of Port Valdes, a landlocked
harbor with anchorage sufficient to ac
commodate the navies of the world. The
temperature and depth of Its waters are
said to be such as to render it available
as a harbor for ocean-going steamers dur
ing every day In the year. Through the
Keystone Pass, In the Coist Range of
mountains, and through the valley of the
Copper River, crossing the main range of
the Rocky Mountains at Mentasta Pass;
thence crossing the headwaters of the Tan
ana River to theForty-Mlle country, to the
headwaters of American Creek, and down
this stream to Eagle City, on the banks
of the Yukon. The entire breadth of Cen
tral Alaska Is traversed over this line
on an all-Americm route, which is the
shortest through American territory by
250 miles, and extends through a section
of country that may In a few years be
self-6ustalning. Over this route citizens
of the United States may travel at will
without taxation or the petty annoyances
necessarily inciaont to travel through a
foreign nation. This route appears to
have hydrographically and geographically
a preponderance or advantages thit en
title It to favorable consideration as the
all-American route from the seaboard to
the Upper Yukon River In Alaska.
"The work of the season of 1899, which
has been pushed to a practical Issue by
the War Department, has resulted In the
organization and prosecution of many In
dustrial pursuits. Mining companies have
sent their principals into the field to de
velop the resources of the Copper River
Valley, which had hitherto been locked up
In the mountain fastnesses, owing to the
Inaccessibility of that region. Railroad
companies have been organised, and their
field staff of engineers sent forward to
complete the preliminary work for the
laying of track and the building of
wharves and bridges. The small farmer
has built his log cabin along this all-Amer-Ican
route, where his wife and children
will till the soil and minister to the wants
of the travelers. Contracts have been en
tered Into for the delivery of domestic an
imals to the various camps In the Yukon
Valley over the all-American route, and
as a result that part of our domain, which
would undoubtedlv havi remained dor
mant for years to com has, hv the help
ing hand extended to the frontiersman bv
the military, developed those. Industries

A VICIOUS FIGHT.
Won From Russell
DENVER. Nov. 2. With blood stream
ing from deep cuts over both eyes and a
savage expression on his countenance, big
Fred Russell, the) California heavy-weight,
broke from a clinch as the gong sounded
the close of the fourth round of his fight
with the veteran Joe Choynskl, before
tho Colorado Athletic Association tonight,
and. with two terrific punches to the
body, sent him flying through the ropes
and on to the floor of the clubhouse,
where he remained nearly five minutes
stretched at full length. Two big police
men then lifted him to his feet and as
sisted him Into the ring. Joe Immediately
walked up to Russell, who stood with his
seconds to one side of the ring, apparent
ly wondering what had happened, and
squared off In front of Russell. Referee
Frank Cullen stepped between the men,
who were about to mix It up again, and.
holding Joe's arm In the air. declared him
the winner on account of Russell's trans
gression of the rules. Russell's fouling
of Choynskl caused Intense excitement
among the fighters, club officials and
spectators, and when Joo had been seated
In his corner and his seconds were fixing
him up, the timekeeper sounded the gong
for order, Joe, thinking It was call of
time, got up for business again, and was
only restrained by the repeated shouting
of the crowd that he had won.
The fight was the most vicious ever
witnessed In Denver. Russell's great
weight and strength was more than Joe
could stand, and 3ie was frequently rushed
off his feet and against the ropes. He
clinched frequently to save himself, and
In breaking received some very hard
punches on the body and head. Joe got
some very hard Jabs to Russell's head
and body, as the latter bored In on him,
and cut through the flesh over both of
Russell's eyes, causing the blood to riot
In streams. Just after the fight started,
Joe went to the floor with his hands on
his groin, and showed evidence, of pain.
Ho struggled to his feet and Russell
nearly threw the referee out of the ring
In hid efforts to get at Joe, which brought
a storm of hisses from the crowd. There
was a great deal of wrestling and clinch
ing all through the fight, and Joe was
thrown to the floor several times, and
in return threw Russell clear over his
(Choynskl's) head. Russell's, -superior
strength gave "him the advantage in.thls
style of fighting, and he undoubtedly
wouldj have worn Joe down, and knocked
him out had 'the fight .continued. Two
thousand persons witnessed the boutl

One Was Issued in 1TT6 and the Oth
er in 1778.
ANTES FORT, Pa., Oct, 27. (To tho
Editor.) I see In your paper of August
26 a clipping from the Spokane Chronicle
about a Mr. Flechtl, who says he is the
owner of the only $00 bill in existence In
the United States, and was ottered $1000
therefor. Now. I would like to Inform
the owner of than$0 'bill,- through your
paper, that I have a $C0 bill, which tallies
with the description of his bill to the
very letter, and I am also In possession
of another bill of tho value of $6, dated
August 14, 1776, which is two years older
than my $60 bill, and also two years older
than the one of the Spokane man.
My $60 bill Is about 4xS inches In size.
On one side Is written the receipt, as fol
lows: "This bill entitles the bearer to
receive 00 Spanish milled dollars for value
received In gold or silver, according to a
resolution passed by Congress at Phila
delphia, September 26, 177S," On the face
also Is an engraving of a ring the size of
a silver dollar, with a small globe In the
center, and on the margin of the ring are
tho following words: "Dcus Regnat, Ex
ultet, Terra," Underneath the ring Is
"LX Dollars," and on both ends Is printed
the name, "United States." On the top
and bottom of the bill Is printed "Oonti
hental Currency, LX D's." On the back
Is drawn a bow, with a set arrow. Along
the margin is again printed the value of
the bill. On the lower edge are the
words, "Printed by Hall & Selers, 1773."
Here also are the names of some persons,
but they are too faded to be legible.
My $6 bill is of the same .size. On the
face Is the following: "Six Dollars, No.
(faded out). This bill of Six Dollars shall
entitle the bearer hereof to receive gold
or sliver, at the rate of four shillings and
six pence, sterling, per dollar for the said
bill, according to a resolve of the conven
tion of Maryland, held at the City of An
napolis, the fourteenth day of August,
MDOqiiXXVI." Below this are two sig
natures. The margin of the face of this
bill is surrounded with a dark border,
with the value "six" printed In several
places, and some other figures and marks
too much faded to be made out with the
On the back of this bill is also a narrow
border. Inside the border, at the top,
the value Is again printed, "Six Dollars."
On the edge Is "Equal to 27s sterling."
at one end Is, "Printed by F. Green." At
the other end Is the word "Annapolis." In
tho center Is a ring the size of a silver
half-dollar, with some letters encircling it.
Both bills have the appearance of being
of a greenish cast, but time has changed

Siberian Rivers Well Lighted.
New York Tribune Correspondence.
One of the most remarkable features
of the Russian navigation of Siberian
rivers consists In the thorough way In
which each verst of the navlgablo 3000
or more Is lighted. There Is always a
lamp post In sight, and these are painted
white or red, so as to be easily dis
cernible during the day. This must ne
cessitate the employment of at least 1000
llghtkeepers, who also patrol and sound
the river's depth within their respective
beats. Each Isolated woodpile must also
have its guardians, who live near by In
a log hut or two.

Letter mall for the Interior of Alaska
was carried last Winter by a service that
was reasonably well performed. For the
coming Winter the arrangements double
the frequency of dispatches for points
supplied by various overland routes, sup
plying the offices along them with letter
mall four times a month. Malls will be
carried by reindeer this Winter from
Eaton to Kotzebue, a point north of the
Arctic circle. Plans for various overland
routes are announced, and the necessity
emphasized of co-operation with the War
Department in opening up an all-Amerl-can
military and post road from Valdes
to the Upper Yukon.
The service In Porto Rico, Hawaii and
tho temporary military postal service In
China are touched on briefly.
The special and general weighing of the

an aggregate much greater than gener
ally supposed, and that 6 per cent of the
total matter was sent direct to the rail
roads. The result of the regular quadren

Is stated, has developed valuable Infor

WASHINGTON, Nov. 2. The District
Supreme Court today dismissed the pe
tition for mandamus asked for by Lewis
Brown, ex-Lieutenant In the volunteer
Infantry, against the Secretary of War
to compel Issuance of an honorable dis
charge. Brown was tried by court-martial
at San Luis, Cuba, on the charge of
gambling, and was acquitted. General

referred the case back to the court,

tenced him to dismissal. Brown, In his
petition, claimed that the first action of
the court-martial was final.

LONG CHITfESS FINGER HAILS
Maries Social Standing That
Sometimes Attain 18 Inches.
In China long finger nails are a mark
of gentility. They are an Indication that
their possessor Is a man of leisure. When
they arc excessively long, approaching
the dignity of talons, as they sometimes
do, they indicate that the gentleman or
lady attached to them nas passed the
mere gentility line, and has become a
full-fledged aristocrat. In Aunam, where
the finger-nill habit has persisted for
hundreds and perhaps thousands of
years, these signs-manual of extreme
gentility sometimes attain by careful cul
tivation the length of six or eight inches,
and Instances are on record where a
length of 16 and even 18 inches has been
This custom prevails generally through
out what is know as lndo-Chlna, which
Includes Slam. Burmah. Cambodia, Laos
and the Shan States, etc. It Is also com
mon throughout the Chinese Empire,
more especially In the southern provinces.
Well-to-do- merchants and storekeepers
content themselves with encouraging the
growth of one or two nails only, usually
those of the fore and middle Angers; of
ficials, according to their grade, may cul
tivate a larger number of claws, of a
proportionately exaggerated length. The
wives of merchants are also fond of this
sort of display. In cases where tho exi
gencies of the domestic situation call for
some degree of toll In tho household, pro
tectors, 'usually of sliver or some base
metal, are worn as sheaths over the pro
jecting talons. Nails measuring an inch
and a quarter or an Inch and a half In
length are quite common in China, and,
as has been remarked, claws extending
10 or 12 times that length are by no means
rare In the neighboring states.
It Is said that some of the Annamess
noblemen never have their nails cut from
the time of birth. In such cases, of
course, the poor creatures are practically
helpless, and have to rely on servants
entirely for assistance In tho discharge
of the most common offices, being unable
either to clothe or feed themselves.
Old and New Mottoes.
