make a bust.
'Mr. Vanderbllfa death will have no

said Chauncey M. Depew today. "Wll
Ham K. Vanderbllt. with hla brother's
consent, took his position at their head
two years ago."
Friend of the family are yet In ig
norance of the provisions of the will,
Depew said, William K. Vanderbllt is
in charge of everything. It Is probable
that several trust funds have been
formed under the will, so that the es

la flying the British flag, and Is not
subject to the merchant shipping act.
The authorities have been discussing

ably that 450 of the soldiers on board

permitted to sail for San Francisco.
Several of tbe discharged soldiers on
board the Tartar filed the complaints
of her unsanitary condition which

WASHINGTON, Sept. 13.-Seeretary

chartering of the steamship Manauenz,
capable of carrying M0 men, and the
Bristol, SiK) men. These ships are avail
ROOT NOT ADVISED.
NEW YORK, Sept. 13.-A special to
the Herald from Washington, says:
Secretary Root has received no ad
vices reg.inling the action of the Hong
kong authorities In detaining the
transport Tartar because of her alleged
overcrowded condition. The Tartar
has 1230 men on board and this num
ber Is not sufficient to overcrowd her.
Even if ahe were overcrowded, accord
ing to General Ludington, quorter-master-genoral,
the British authorities
would have no grounds for demanding
that 450 men be removed from the
ship, as she Is an American naval ves
sel, subject to American jurisdiction
If the governor of Hongkong has de
tained the Tartar, representations will
probably be made to Great Britain on
CAPE TOWN, Sept M. The Car
Time and Cape Argus, both consider
British note generoua and conciliatory
and all papers Including Krugerlte or-
gana assume that the Transvaal will
comply with British demands. It la
believed the Orange Free State and
the Volkaraad will be summoned to
consider the situation.
Military developments continue and
the work of preparation for emergen
cies goes on.
