Cuban Postal Frauds.
Washington, Aug. 30. In the post-
Office department important changes
re to he made upon the return of
Postmaster-General Payne. All
(ourth-class appointments will he
iven to the office of the first assist-
at postmaster-general, thus remov
ing the immense patronage now at

Postmaster-General Bristol. It is
Claimed the move is made to punish
Jristol for his refusal to resign

.Dutch Celebrate Queen's Birthday.
The Hague, Aug. SO. Queen Wil-
kelmlna will be twenty-two yeari old
amorrow and all Holland 1b prepar
ug to celebrate the birthday with
sore than the usual manifestations
If Joy and tokens of congratulation.
ar It seems that the love and affec-
Ion which the Netherlanders have
r the little Queen increase In geo-
aetrical proportion to the unkappi-
less which, from all reports,
ie Queen has had to bear almost
am her wedding day. A royal love-
aatch was the characterization ap
plied to the brilliant marriage cere-
aony celebrated here on that bright
February morning scarcely two
rears ago, but how far the public was
mistaken and the fair young queen
slso has long since been demon
strated. It was a bad match, so
ay and know the Dutch people to-
sday. It is safe to assert that every
heart In Holland throbs in sympathy
with that of the Queen in her dls
tress and many are the messages and
addresses of congratulation that will
Ipour in upon her tomorrow in accord
ance with custom, though were they
expressions of condolence they might
lit the occasion better. The attitude
of the stolid burgesses toward Prince
Henry remains unchanged. They
never regarded him with a friendly
eye. The wedding of Queen Wilhel
mina and Prince Henry occasioned no
spontaneous rejoicing among them.
From the very first their attitude was
i one of Jealous reserve toward the
German soldier who had captured
their girl queen's heart. They de-
clarod at the time of the weding that
I the heBt of German princelets was
I not good enough for their qv.een and
now they are more convinced than
ever of this fact At first the reel
ling was much the same as that en
tertained by the English people to
ward Prince Albert at the time of
Shis marriage to Queen Victoria. But
there the parallel ends. As time
went on Prince Albert won the re
! gard and finally the affection of the
English people, while Prince Henry
on the other hand, has, by his ap
parent neglect if nof mistreatment
of the queen, come to be regard
ed by the Netherlanders with a feel
ing of dislike that is as cordial as It
is general and all-pervading.

Vermont's Campaign' Closes.
Burlington, Vt,, Aug. 30. One of
the most active political campaigns
this state has ever seen closed today,
and Tuesday will ue waged the battle
which Is considered of the utmost im
portance to both parties. The situa
tion is one without precedent in this
state. After the republicans had
nominated their state ticket early in
July, headed by General J. G. McCul
lough as candidate for governor, a
bolting element of the party met In
this city and put up an opposition
state ticket on a local option pro
gram. Their gubernatorial nominee
is P. W. Clement The regular repub
licans profess to have no fear as to
the result and say their majority will
not be cut down much by the efforts
of the Clement forces. There has
never been a democratic governor,
congressman or senator from Ver
mont, and politicians declare that the
order will not be broken this year,
though the democrats themselves say
that a split-up among the republicans
will enable them to make a better
showing whenjbe ballots are counted
than ever before.
Great Labor Day Travel.
Chicago,. 111., Aug. 30. .no rail
roads of the middle west believe that
passenger traffic on Labor day will
exceed anything they have ever
known. The need of equipments suf
ficient to accommodate the crowds is
troubling transportation departments
and in some instances It is recognized
that the number of people carried
will be limited only by the ability of
the roads to supply enough cars.

Greetings For Roosevelt.
Burlington, Vt, Aug. 30. The
scenes attending the passage of the
presidential train along the route to
day were a repetition of those that
have marked each day since the par
ty left Oyster Bay. Crowds at every
station waved and cheered to the
passing train, and every farm house
and crossroads had its group of eager
watchers. At Windsor and one or
two others points brief stops were
made. Apparently the entire popula
tion of these towns turned out to wel
come the president and every houBe
and building within sight of the sta
tion was elaborately festooned with
the national colors. A royal welcome
awaited the party on Its arrival in
Burlington. A citizens' committee
greeted the visitors and there was a
military escort to the home of ex
Governor Bradbury, whoso guest the
president is during his stay In the
city. This evening the party proceeds

Mrs. Dubois and a party were

When her companions found she was
not among their number they spent
the afternoon In searching for her

was of no avail and the party broke

Boise City, Idaho, Man In the;
Boise, Idaho, Aug. 30. A remark
able case of fraud was mado public
on Monday whon Chief of Police
Francis came In from Long valley
with Wm. M. Land In custody. The
prisoner was arrested for changing
tho name on a draft that did not be
long to him and getting It cashed, the
amount of tho draft being $1083.40.
Tho, crime was committod two
monthB ago, on or about Juno 25., It
was not discovered until about a
week ago. A further remarkable
feature of the case is that the man
had kept the money, $980 being re'
covered by tho officer.
Changed the Name.
It seems the draft was drawn by a
bank at Harrisburg, Virginia, on the
Natitmal Park Bank of New York. It
was in favor of W. H. Lam, and was
sent to tho latter by the lattor's sou,
J. E. Lam. W. H. Lam lives in Boise.
The officers do not know anything
about him. It seems that the loss
was unearthed by correspondence be
tween tho father and son. The father
notified his son the draft had not
been received, and tho Harrisburg
bank was notified. Whon tho latter
received its statemont from its Now
York correspondent in the oarly part
of the month this cancelled draft was
among those returned. It was dis

general delivery. On or about June

and opened1 It and found 'UiIh draft.
He proceeded to change the name
"Lam" to "Land" and got It cashed
in the manner narrated.
