Statistics of Incorporated- Places In
the Country. a Compared With.
"' Ten Years Ago.
WASHINGTON, June S. The census
bureau today Issued a bulletin giving the
population of incorporated places in the
country. The bulletin shows that there
are 10,602 such places as compared with
7578 in 1890.
The bulletin shows S8 cities containing
more than 100,000 people each. Of the
large cities in 1900 three. New York, Chi
cago and Philadelphia, contain more than
1,000,000 inhabitants, the same as In 1890,
while for cities having between 500,000 and
iOOOOO inhabitants these in 1900 number
three as against only one in 1S90. There
were no cities in 1900, containing between
400,000 and 500,000 Inhabitants, but at the
census bf 1890 there were three cities of
this class. On the other hand there were
five cities in 1900 with a population of
between 300,000 and 400,000, but in 1S90
there were no cities coming between these
limits of population. Of the total number
of places in the list, almost one-half, or
4318, contain more than 500 people, while
there are 2051 places of between 500 and
In the states. Illinois leads with 920 In
corporated towns, and Pennsylvania
comes next with 833. New York has 438
such places. There are no incorporated
municipalities In Alaska. The Incorpor
ated places contain in the aggregate 35,
849,516 inhabitants, as compared with a
total of 26.079.S2S persons living in incor

ulation In the incorporated towns and
cities constitutes 47 per cent of the popu
lation of the entire country as against 41
per cent In the towns In 1S90. In the State
of New York, which takes the lead in
this respect, 77 per cent of the people live
In the cities and towns as against 69
per cent in 1890. In six other states,
namely, Massachusetts, Illinois, Rhode
Island, Pennsylvania Colorado and Con

Distinguished Themselves.
"WASHINGTON, June S The Secretary
of the Navy today approved the recom
mendations of the Naval Board of Awards
concerning medals of honor and letters of
commendation to a number of officers and
men of the Navy and men of the marine
"who distinguished themselves during the
campaign in China and la the Philip
pines. Secretary Long's action did not
go outside of the Orient recommenda
tions, and he will not pass upon the San
tiago medals until the return of Assist
ant Secretary Hackett. The honors Ap
proved by the Secretary are as follows:

for his skill, courage and good judgment
In handling his vessel, the gunboat Cala
mianes, in the Augasion River, Minda
nao, February '26, 1901, and the successful
carrying out of the object of the expedi
tion. The board regrets that under the
law no greater reward can be given this
promising young officer. His exhibition
of professional skill and nerve upon this
occasion appeals most forcibly to it.

No Longer Prejudice Against Adop
tion of Battle-Ships.
"WASHINGTON, June 2. An officer of
the Bureau of Construction, of the Navy
Department, who has been prominently
connected with many of the battle-ships
and cruisers that have been added to the
Navy recently, and who Is close to the
chief constructor, was commenting the
other day on the recent report of the na
val board of experts. In session at New
port, in which they reported adversely on
the construction of armored cruisers of
the Maryland type, and favored battle
ships of the Virginia class, making the
assertion that one battle-ship Is worth
two armored cruisers. The Maryland is
a sister ship of the Colorado and South
Dakota, while the Virginia is as a sister
ship of the Rhode Island.
"The fact is," said this officer, "that of
late the armored cruiser and the modern
battle-ship are so closely allied that It is
difficult to draw the distinction between
the two. "When our modern navy was
commenced the battle-ship was a far
different vesael from the armored cruiser,
but gradually the two types have been
drawing towards a common point, the
battle-ship gaining In speed and sacrific
ing a little weight, the cruiser improving
its already high speed and taking on a
little more armor from time to time, until
at the present day there is practically no
difference between the two.
"To my mind, the report of the New
port board may be taken to mean that in
the future armored cruisers wiU be elim
inated and all heavily armored vessels will
be strictly battle-ships. The great suc
cess of the battle-ship . Oregon in the
Spanish "War did much to break down the
prejudice against what had. been termed
the 'slow battle-ships It lias been dem,
onstrated that battle-ships sufficiently
protected by heavy armor to render them
vulnerable can be supplied with powerful
fngines capable of driving them through
he water at a rate of about 19 knots
an hour, an dthls Is all we can expect, and
all we require. When we need vessels of
a h'gher speed, the armor -will have to be
sacrificed and the weight lessened.
"One of these battle-ships with an arma
ment of four 12-Inch guns and a full bat
tery of smaller arms makes as formida
ble naval defense as there will be any
call for for some time to come. The 13
Inch rifle which has been installed on the
older battle-ships, has now been practI-
cally abandoned, as the 12-Inch rifle. In
addition to being as effective. Is much
lighter, and preserves a better balance
on the ship. In case the recommendation
of the Newport board is carried out, we
will have no more armored cruisers and
more battle-ships. As I said before, how
ever, the two are now practically a com
mon type."
Raised the Quarantine.
AUSTIN. Tex., June 8.-State Health
Officer Blunt has recommended to Gov
prnor Sayres, and the Governor has ac
cepted the recommendation, that the quar
antine which has been maintained against
San Francisco for some months pasfbfc
raised. .The Health Officer gives as his
reason that he is unable to confirm the
reports that bubonic plague exists at that
point. Another reason is that there have
been .no cases reported for some time.
The embargo will be raised at once. Lou
isiana has maintained a quarantine for
the past four months, and the Health
Board of that state has been notified of
the action of today.
Graves of Chinese Desecrated in
NEW YORK, June 8. Chinamen in
"Washington are stirred up over the dis
covery that graves in the Chinese plat
in the Congressional cemetery have been

ten to tho district commissioners, calling
their attention, to the affair, according to

Trial of the Murder Case at Kansas
City Postponed on Acconnt of
the Woman's Condition.
KANSAS CITY, June 8. Lulu Prince
Kennedy cried convulsively In the court
room this morning when a witness testi
fied to- a conversation held with the pris
oner's favorite brother, Bert Prince, a few
minutes after the killing of Kennedy.
Mrs. Kennedy was removed from the
room in an effort to quiet her, but when
she was brought back a few-minutes later
she sobbed aloud, and finally collapsed
entirely. Unable to proceed with the trial,
Judge Wofford ordered an adjournment
until Monday, and the prisoner,, moaning
and crying aloud, was carried bodily
'; 3&irfi
across the corridor to her cell. This was
the first real sign of a breakdown the
prisoner has displayed since the killing In
January last, the cool attitude and ap
parently careless bearing she has shown
having completely puzzled the officers
who haVe had her In their care.
Miss Bertie Litchfield, a former school
mate of Bert Prince, was on the stand,
resuming her testimony of yeslerday.
Yesterday she told of Prince being in the
Ridge Building at the time of the murder,
and of his conversation with her at the
time. The defense had objected to this
conversation being related, and Judge
Wofford reserved his decision until today,
announcing this morning that the state
would be permitted to give the testimony.
The theory of the -state is that Bert
Prince, together with his brother Will and
his father, C. W. Prince, all of whotn are
awaiting trial on a charge of complicity
In the murder, had conspired with Mrs.
Kennedy to kill Kennedy, and that the
male members of the family were present
in the building watching the different en
trances to prevent his escape.
Miss Litchfield today testified to having
seen Bert Prince on the floor above Ken
nedy's office a moment after the shooting.
"I told him," said Miss Litchfield, "that
I had been down stairs, that some one
had been hurt. Bert said: 'Lulu did it;
she gave him what was coming to him.
He did not treat her right and she fixed
him.' "
At this point Mrs. Kennedy gave way
to a fit of crying and was taken from the
room. Bert Prince, who Is a traveling
musician, has since her incarceration
done more apparently than any other
member of the family to make the pris
oner's situation bearable, frequently hold
ing concerts in her cell, and Mrs. Kennedy
had shown her favoritism for him and
keen regret that his name had any con
nection with the case.
In the courtroom Mrs. Kennedy oc
cupied a chair at a table with her at
torneys, and about her dally are grouped
her father, her mother, who visited the
prisoner but once since her arrest; her
married sister, Mrs. Leon, and the lat
ter's husband. Frequently during the
whole session of the court her relatives
pay no attention to her. Today, when
Mrs. Kennedy gave vent to her feelings
In sobbing her father tried to quiet her,
but Mrs. Prince and Mrs. Leon remained
In their seats making no effort to com
fort the woman.
Charles Dittmler testified to Bert Prince,
having forecasted the murder. Two days
before tho murder occurred Dittmler said
Prince accosted him while reading a news
paper account of Kennedy's suit for an
nulment of the marriage. Prince had re
marked: "You'll read worse than that
about him before long."
William T. Hacker told of seeing Mrs.
Kennedy and Bert Prince together'in the
vicinity of Kennedy's office a few hours
before the murder, and Clifford Lawson
testified to having seen Prince there at
about the same time with a woman whom
he did not know.
After Mrs. Kennedy had been taken to
her cell the jail physician was called
and administered a quieting potion. He
said her condition was not at all serious,
and that she would be well enough Mon
day for the trial to be continued. Mon
day last the attorneys predicted that the
jury would have the case by this evening.
Now the Indications are that the trial will
laet all next week.
Gang of Confidence Men Broken Up

Instruments and all the paraphernalia
necessary to a well-equipped poolroom.
Chief of Police O'Neill and several detec

Attorney of St. Mary's Connty Found
Guilty of Conspiracy.
BALTIMORE, Md., June 8. The Jury
in the census fraud cases has returned a
verdict finding Joseph Ching, an attorney
of St. Mary's County, guilty on, the fourth
count of the Indictment for conspiracy
with Guyther, who pleaded guilty, but was
not placed 'on trial. On all other counts
the verdict Is not guilty. Graves, Bowles
and Abell, who were jointly indicted on
tho same charge, were found not guilty.
Attorney Marbury filed a motion for a
Pew trial. -
After the trial, counsel for the Govern
ment made a proposition that Abell and
Bowles should plead guilty to the further
indictments against them on the charge
of padding the census returns -without a
conspiracy and accept a slight term of im
prisonment as punishment. The mat
ter was left open for further discussion.

NEW YORK, June 8. Representatives
of four law firms Interested lii the Rice

on West Forty-fourth street, where Jones
Is to give his testimony under an order of
the Surrogate's Court. He was too ill
to testify. Fear has arisen that the very
measures adopted to prevent Jones from
taking his own life may result In a fatal
attack of. nervous prostration, compli
cated with other ailments.
His removal several weeks ago from the
House of Detention to his present loca
tion did not result in the hoped-for im
provement in his health, and he declared
that the constant presence of detectives
is' responsible for his condition. He says
he cannot sleep with a man watching at
his bedside.
Millions of Human Beings Are Held
In Bondage There.
There are at a low estimate 10,000,000
human beings who are In servitude in the
Celestial Kingdom. China has 80,000,000
families, and this makes one slave to ev
ery eight families, says the London Ex
press. The average Is greater in South
China, where nearly every one owns
slaves. There is scarcely a Chinese fam
ily of means in Nankin, Canton, Macao
or Amoy but possesses one or more slave
girls. Slave boys are less common, but
the girls are found In every street and
In almost every house.
Girls .fetch from $10 to $100 and upward
In South China. They are sold at any
age from 3 to 15, but most commonly at
7 or 8. The prettiest girls are the most
desirable, as in case of marriage or sale
they will bring more to the family which
buys them. Most of the slave girls are
bought to work about the house. It Is
cheaper to buy a servant than to hire one,
for if you take a girl of 8 you can have
her services until she Is 15, getting eight
years of work for nothing but her board
and clothes, and then sell her for per
haps ten times your original price.
Theoretically there are no slaves In
Hong Kong, as It is British territory, but
in reality the city Is full of th'em. They
are the maid 'servants and nurses of the
Chinese. Every small-footed lady needs
slaves to help her about, and In the
houses of the rich, where there are many
daughters, It is not uncommon to find
from 20 to 30 .slaves In a single family.
Female slaves are often presents from
one man to another, and not Infrequently
they form a part of the bridal outfit.
They are commonly bought as secondary
wives and often as teachers.
There are localities in China where the
girls are noted for their beauty. The cit
ies of Yahg-Ctiau and Su-Chau .re as fa
mous for tearing handsome girls as Is
Georgia In the Caucasus, front where
rich Turks so often obtain their wives.
There are persons in these cities who
make a business of raising slave girls.
They search the country about for
promising young girls and put them
through a regular course of training. They
have farms where the slaves are taught
to sing, play upon musical Instruments
and to acquire other accomplishments
which, added to beauty, will cause them
to sell for high prices to the rich man
darins. These girls are chiefly the daugh
ters of poor people or the daughters of
It is common for a man to purchase his
wife. Indeed, there are more wives ac
quired in this way than In any other.
Every man in China has a right to as
many wives as he can maintain, and a
secondary wife is cheaper than a hired
servant. The first wife Is the legal one,
but the others have their rights, although
they are practically slaves.
The man who is addicted to the opium
habit will sell his children, and not In
frequently his wife, to supply his appe

There are slave brokers In all the large
Chinese cities. Their business. Increases
at times of famine, and. the starvation
which lately prevailed In North China
caused many parents to sell their children.
With some it was a question of allowing
them to starve or selling them. The re
sult Is that girl babies are a drug on
in the market.
Think of buying a baby for a shilling!
This Is the price which one of the Infant
asylums of Shanghai Is said to pay for
them. This is a philanthropic institution,
and the children are bought as a matter
ot-charity and religion. They are reared
surrounded by Christian influences, are
taught all sorts of domestic duties, and
when they arrive at the proper age are
given respectable husbands.
The brokers, as a rule, do not buy ba
bies. The cost of rearing them and the
risk of death are too great. They prefer
to have girls or boys of 8 years and up

Ladles' Home Journal.
One colony of wild honey bees Jess than
a mile away had survived the famine of,
the 'previous Summer, and In July, made
desperate by lack of forage, certain of
their wanderers discovered my hive, and
succeeded In sneaking by the sentries and
in getting away again with honey bags
filled with plunder undetected. Returning
later with others of their tribe they were
discovered and driven off. But the whole
colony of forest dwellers was now eager
for booty and came In overpowering
force. I narrowed the entrance to the
hive and my bees defended It valiantly;
the fighting was fierce until long after
dark, and In the morning It was again
renewed, and finally the defendants were
defeated with heavy losses. The survivors
were compelled to go into bondage and
assist their victors to carry away the
captured honey to the woods, and before
the midsummer sun was half way up the
sky, the hive stood silent and deserted,
save for a few loitering pilferers crawling
about the torn and empty coihbs, searctUng
among the dead for a last drop of honey.
The queen, I presume, must have been
killed, for she certainly would never have
consented to accompany the enemy with'
the other prisoners. Yet I waB unable to
find her among the dead, and believe that
she died fighting in the open and dropped
into the grass.

W. H. Shields, Editor and Publisher of
The Douglas 'Co. Democrat, of Ava, Mo.,
Volodyovski, Winner of the Derby,
Was Leased by Whitney From
Lady Meux.
LONDON. June 8. London is still talk
ing of the Derby and the Oaks. The dis
cussion of the relative merits of American
and British methods of training and rid
ing has broken out anew. It must be
confessed that the British comments are
generally very fair. They sorrowfully
admit the superiority of America on ev
ery point. The Sporting Times says:
"The Derby has been won by a French
horse and an American jockey, but never
until Wednesday was it won by a horse
that had other than an English Jockey
in the saddle. Whatever our horses
might be. the supremacy of our jockeys
was deemed complete. But that fallacy
Is now exploded. Thus two records were
broken, viz.: A victory for a jockey who
was not a subject of the King, and the
running of the race in the fastest time
on record. The Derby was an Anglo
American triumph, but -not so that of
the Oaks, which was American, pure and
simple. It is a fact that rivalry ran
high In America last year between Mr.
Whitney and Mr. Keene, almost amount
ing to bad blood, when a colt of Mr. Whit
ney's beat Olympian for tltfe Futurity.
Under the circumstances. It Is not a lit
tle singular that Mr. Whitney should
have won the Derby and Mr. Keene the
Oaks. To add to the American triumph,
the Tammany Chieftain, Croker, rart
third in the Oaks, while an American
jockey rode the winner of the Derby,
and the first three In the Oaks were rid
den by Jockeys of that nationality. Hen
ry, who was Imported by Mr. Keene, who
brought Slpan to this country, has made
a rare beginning."
The papers have printed New York dis
patches saying that Mr. Whitney would
take Volodyovski to America, but he can
not do that. He has simply leased the
horse for 5000 cash and half of what
the horse might win at 3 and 4 years of
age, after which he was to be returned.
Had Lady Meux careo, to sell the colt
outright on an offer that was made, he
would now stand at 25.000. the offer be
ing 15,000 down and 10.000 more If he
won the Derby. In these matters, she
has not looked on money at all. Her
great desire was that, as Hugglns had
borne the jieat of the day, he should reap
the reward. For that reason she accept
ed an offer that would admit of Volodyov
skl's remaining In his stable. The only
thing that might have altered all this
was If King Edward had continued to
be Prince of Wales. But for his acces
sion to the throne, we would now see
him credited with -what no living man
has been credited with, viz., three Derby
winner?. Lady Meux is a very public
spirited woman. She paid fully for a
battery of guns, and the public Is little
aware of the tons of stores and comforts
she has caused to be sent to the troops in
South Africa. She has a splendid col
lection of Nelson relics, Including Lady
Hamilton's jewelry. When Temple Bar
was removed, Lady Meux saved the ma
terials from being broken up for side
walks, had every stone numbered, and
now old Temple Bar. exactly as it was in
the Strand forms the principal approach
of her estate at Theobald Park.
Fabulous sums were won on Cap and
Bells IPs victory In the Oaks. The com
missioners had literally unlimited orders
to back the filly as long as a decent price
was obtainable, and every American won,
and the women that saw Foxhall Keene

"Many people of Douglas County know

this paper was with systemic catarrh.
"We count it simply an act of Justice to
say that after trying several doctors and
proprietary medicines, we were Induced
to try S. B. Hartman's Peruna as put up
by the Peruna Medicine Co., of Colum
bus, O. This remedy I believe saved my

earth, but I will say It Is the best medi

"Since writing that editorial several per

whether it was really a fact or only an
advertisement. I have assured them that
it was written entirely without the know

case has been the cause of your selling
many bottles of Peruna, both here and
at Drury, where I formerly lived." W.

accumulated In favor of Peruna. I use it
in my family and practice to a large ex
tent, and can conscientiously say that I
know of no remedy for all blood aliments
so good. It is especially valuable to
Tried Medicines of All Schools.
Mrs. Laura J. Smith, National Organ
izer Anti-Treat Society, writes from 1217
W.. 33d street, Minneapolis, Minn.:
"I have had trouble with my bladder,
kidneys and other pelvic organs for over
10 years, and It caused me serious Incon
venience and pain.
"I tried the medicines of all schools, but
none could cure my case. My neighbor
received wonderful benefits In a similar
case, and advised me to try Peruna. 1
at once bought a bottle and experienced
relief within a week. I took It nearly
three months before I was cured, but I
am now regaining flesh and feeling bet
ter than I have been for the past 15
years." Laura J. Smith.
If you do not derive prompt and satis
factory results from the use of Peruna,
