CONNECTICUT GOES REPUBLICAN Worden, the Sacramento Train-wrecker, Will Hits to Face New and Positive Bvldence. Japanese Arsenal Are Busy. San Fbancisco, . Oct. 2 H. E. Kell er, of Philadelphia, has arrived from Tokio, Yokohama, Kobe and other- Japanese points, where he has been for three months,. "The arsenal at Tokio," he said, "is as busy as it can be, and nobody is allowed there. Strict secrecy is preserved. I dined with Iwasaka, the richest man in Japan, who recently gave 5,000,000 yen or $250,000 to aid the war, and became quite intimate with ' him, but he told me he could not, act ing in accordance with the policy of the Japanese, give any facts about the war. Everywhere I found the same secrecy observed. I mej frequently Count Mat stigeto, the James G. Blaine of Japan and ex-prime minister, and son, with whom I graduated at college. Both told me the policy was to give nothing out that could give the Chinese an in sight into what was being done. Going from Hong Kong to Shanghai I met four English gunners who had been en gaged for a Chinese war ship at $100 a month, and five years pay to their fami lies if killed. An English captain was with them, who was to receive much- greater pay. The Chinese are engag ing all the Englishmen fighters they can, and they are paying them . big sums. In Japan it is is believed to be W the intention to move immediately on Peking and capture it before winter sets in. The Japanese see they have got to -4do it quick or it will be much harder later." Tbe Connecticut Election. New Havkn, Oct. 2. Returns from 100 towns in Connecticut show unprece dented gains for the republicans in the town elections yesterday. Towns that have not elected republican officers in years went republican by a thousand majority. In Water bury the American Protective Association aroused the Cath olics, who elected the entire school board Catholic. In New Britain the no-license vote of one year ago is reversed. The liquor question has been under constant discussion during the year. In almost all towns the American Protective Asso ciation met with defeat. Meredith, Nor wich, Middletown and New Milford, democratic for years, were captured by the republicans. New London elected a democratic mayor, and displaced a re publican. The republicans, however, captured all the other offices. Didn't Get tne Nomination. San Fbancisco, Oct. 2. Charles A. Jonas, a liquor-dealer of this city, who is an aspirant for the nomination as supervisor before the republican conven tion, alleges that he paid Michael Dunn, one of Colonel Burns' lieutenants, the sum of $1000 to secure the nomination, and that he now finds that he has been swindled. ' He promises to make it lively for Mr. Dunn should his money not be returned promptly. An investigation -by the grand jury may possibly take ' place, when startling disclosures are ex pected,, evidence Against Worden. San Francisco, Oct. 2 New evi dence has come to light against the Sacramento trainwrecker, Worden. A boy named Alfred Weston claims that on the day the train was wrecked he 'was on his way from Sacramento to Davisville, and that as he was entering npon the bridge to cros3 over he was sotpped by a band of mea, one of whom he positively identifies as Worden, and ordered to go back. Instead of doing so he hid In the tules and was an eyewit ness to the whole affair of wrecking the train. ' The Wichita Twister. Wichita, Oct. 2. In the tornado which played leap frog through the northern part of "this .city last night, buildings of all kinds were demolished, twisted out and removed from their foundations, yet the occupants suffered Highest of all in Leavening Power. Latest U. S. Gov't Report II f X no harm, except bruises and scratches, and not a single fatality is reported from here. The twister lifted and disap peared to the northwest. From what can be learned from surrounding towns, the tornado seems to have been confined to Wichita - - ' Foreigners in Peking. Shanghai, Oct. 2. The anti-foreign feeling at Peking is increasing hourly, and the authorities find it difficult to repress outbreaks of the Chinese popu lation. Leading Chinese representati ves at Peking fear if the Japanese march against Peking, the capital will be captured, as the Chinese soldiers gathered to defend it are dissatisfied and unreliable. It is reported Li Hung Chang has received orders not to pro ceed to Corea. The March to Peking. Tikn-tsin, Oct. It is officially an nounced 5000 Japanese troops have ar rived close to Passiet bay, near the Russian frontier. Previous to this an nouncement it was reported here a Japanese fleet had been sighted Sept ember 29, ten miles south from Shan Hai Wan, 200 miles from Peking. Large bodies of Chinese troops have been drafted to that district the last few days to prevent the Japanese land ing. Taooma Ship In a Storm. Fatal, Oct. 2. The British ship Ains- dale, Captain Owens, which sailed from Tacoma, May 10, for Queenstown, has put into this port for medical assistance. The Ainsdale encountered heavy gales on the voyage, during which Seaman Thomas Dickson was badly injured and Glasson, Thomson, Freinton and Ken dall washed overboard and were drowned. Worden Threatened With Violence. Woodland, Cal., Oct. 1 S. D. Wor den, who is confined in the county jail awaiting trial for trainwrecking, has re ceived several communications threaten ing him with violence because of a pub lication stating that he contemplated a confession. Martin Irons In Jail. Fokt Wobth, Tex., Oct. 2. In the county jail Martin Irons, whose name famous by the conspicuous part he took in the great railroad strike of 1886, is a prisoner charged with having attempted to assault 7-year-old Rosalia Estrada. The child's mother is complainant. Strike of Textile-Workers. Paotucket, R. I., Oct2. What will probably result in tbe biggest strike of textile-workers this city has ever seen was inaugurated today when 250 weav ers left their looms at Loraine mills, as protest against the reduction of wages. Thirteen hundred are involved, A Severe Bain Storm. Perez, O. T., Oct. 2. In a severe rain storm last night many business houses were flooded.

LOUIS and CHICAGO, NEW YORK, BOSTON: THE APPETIZING OLIVE. Various tTses of tbe Oil of This Peculiar Fruit. Though a native of Syria and possi bly of southern Greece, the olive flour ishes anywhere in a mild climate. Western Asia, southern Europe, north ern Africa, southern England, South America, Mexico in all these places the olive grows readily, taking on an average seven years before it -attains bearing power. Two hundred years ago it was introduced into California by Catholic priests from Mexico and there it has thriven mightily. In South Carolina it is hardy .and fruitful, but unfortunately the crop matures there just when all labor is needed in the cotton fields. The fruit is too bitter unless pickled. Ranging in size from an acorn to a large plum, it is gathered green and placed in a strong solution of potash or lye of wood ashes. When the olives change color this denotes that the potash has struck through to the stone and they are then placed in water, renewed several times a day for five days. A brine of purest salt, with spices, cloves, cinnamon, etc., boiled a few minutes and strained, to which when cold an equal amount of water is added, is then poured over the olives and they are sealed up in bottles or jars. The olive oil of commerce, on the contrary, is made from the ripe fruit, which is dark purple in color, like a Damson plum. The finest quality of this comes from the fruit that has just begun to ripen, but this does not yield nearly so much. The pulp of the dead ripe fruit gives seventy per cent. oil. The finest quality has a faint, greenish hue, a faint, rather pleasing smell and a faintly pungent taste. It is chiefly exported from Italy and France, in the respective ratio of about five gallons to one. - The amount of adulteration, gener ally harmless, in this article is very great. Not long ago the chamber of commerce at Nice offered three thou sand dollars reward for an invention that would readilydetect this adultera tion. The California oil is absolutely pure but high in price and small in the quantity produced. In. many places among the Latin races this oil is a sub stitute for butter on bread and in cook ing. Like other oils it is highly nutri tious, but it requires a strong diges tion. It is also used in medicine as a laxative, one or two fluid ounces being' the dose. For the making of -liniments, oint ments and plasters it is highly prized, and likewise as a basis for the best soaps those of Castile, Marseilles and Venice. This oil was rubbed on the wrestlers of Greece, and probably, with a mixture of perfume, would be a valuable hygienic addition to the Turk ish bath. The olive, so the Greeks and Romans thought, possessed as an edible a trinity of virtues. They believed that it excited an appetite for wine, im proved the flavor of it and at the same time had a steadying1 effect that is, enabled a man to drink with impunity from an overflux of ideas.
