Schley Court of Inquiry Said : to Be Cause
of Much Dissatisfaction. ' -
Washington, Oct. 31. President
Roosevelt seem3 determined to cause
a shake up in the inner circles and
bureaus of the navy department as a
result of the revelations of the
Schley court of inquiry.
When Assistant Secretary Hackett
suddenly decided to resign a few days
ago, it was recalled that he had al
ways been an intense partisan of
Sampson, and further developments,
not entirely pleasant for Sampson's
particular friends or supporters m
the department, ' were looked for.
They came yesterday, when it was
announced that Bear Admiral Crbwn
inshield, chief Ot the bureau of navi
agtion, would be suspended before
the usual term of four years lor which
he was chosen expires. His successor
will be Bear Admiral Taylor, and
Crowinshield, who took the lead in
securing a court of inquiry for Schley,
will be deported to Europe, there to
take charge of the new European
station. " ... '-' '
It is a current report that when
Theodore Boosevelt was assistant
secretary of the navy he clashed
with Crowinshield, and this, besides
his intense partisanship -for Schley,
is set forth as a reason for the bureau
chief's removal. It is said Crownin-
shield flatly opposed bringing the
Oregon around the Horn to Cuban
waters, while Mr. Boosevelt as strong-
ly favored it, and won, - with Secre
tary Long's help.
Officials of the navy department
unhesitatingly say that it is honey
combed with a partisan feeling for
Sampson. These admissions, coupled
with the Hackett and Crowninshield
developments, are what caused the
expectation of a thorough overhaul
ing of the naval department machin
ery from the. assistant down a boom
erang effect of the Shley trial which
the prime movers did not look for.
Within a few days Mr. Hackett
has received threatening letters, and
strange men have called at his home
and frightened his family, until they
called for police protection.;

Certificate of Reasonable Doubt - Granted
Supreme Court Judge.
New York. Oct 3L Justice Mc
Lean in the supreme court, today
granted a certificate of .". reasonable
doubt in the case of Johann Most,
editor of the Freheit, an anarchist
paper, in order to stay his sentence of
12 months' imprisonment '. for the
publication of an article entitled
"Murder vs, Murder, " which appeared-
the day of President McKin-
ley's assassination. . Justice .McLean
says . the only . proof to. support the
judgment is that Most purloined an
article expressing certain sentiments,
written by another half a century
ago, and published it as his own, "in
a paper- professedly of some circula
tion, but which circulation is shown
by the sale of but a single copy, that
purchased by the police, probably for
the purpose of prosecuting." He fur
ther says that it may be doubted reas
onably whether the judgment,- even
with that support, should stand,
plagiarism is not a criminal offense

Hundreds of People All Over ihe Country
" Buncoed Out of Savings.?. ;
Boston, Oct. 30. In connection
with what the - United" states - mar
shal's Office declares to be , one of the
biggest frauds they ever had t to. deal
with in this city, members of tfte
firm of J.C. Fisher & Co., brokers,
were arrested today on a charge of
using the . United States mail in a
scheme to defraud. It is alleged that
$1,000,000 has been taken from the
public since January 1, 1900.
The method of the firm is said by
the authorities to have been very
simple. People all over the country,
it is alleged, were written to and told
what exceptional chances there were
to invest money, and that large re
turns could be expected. - Pools were
formed and those desirous of getting
rich - quickly were invited to re
mit. After two or three weeks, it is
said, investors would be advised that
a pool . had been formed on a well
known stock and that as the quota
tions had gone dowQ the margin had
been swept away, ; and : that more
money was necessary immediately in
order to save the stock. After hav
ing put in two or three Wines the
original stock, some investor ' became
suspicious- and called the attention
of the authorities to the matter. :': 7

Washington, "Oct. 30. The state

adopted by the recently organized
Chinese- Board of National . Adminis
tration, charged with the reorganiza
tion of that government on . modem

Fulfilled the Object of His Jonrney to Siberia
' Secured 254 Reindeer.
Seattle, Oct. 31. Dr. 'Sheldon
Jackson, general agent for the bureau
of education in Alaska, has arrived
in Seattle from the land of his labors,
having . taken passage on the City of
Topeka from Ketchian. He brings
additional details of the experiences
of Lieutenant Bertholf, who was
sent to Siberia to purchase reindeer
for the government. -
. Dr. Jackson tells a different tale
of the' daring young revenue officer,
who, it now appears, was never in
danger, and near starvation in his
long and tedious journey through
Siberia. ; .
Lieutenant Bertholf left Washing
ton, D. C, last January, going to St.
Petersburg, thence to Irkutsk.
From there he disapppeared on the
steppes. His; . mission, ' as sated
above, was to procure a herd of rein
deer of- laier-sizeJthan-?those'Tiow
m Alaska. A revenue cutter was to
meet him and . convey the animals,
and the lieutenant, to Alaska, but
owing to circumstances, the govern
ment could not send one, and it was
thought for a time he might perish.
A short time ago there came a
brief notice that he ' had landed at
Port - Clarence with -a herd of rein-j
deer.: He was riot expected to. return
for a year or more, but his , usual re
sourceful ability, evidently brought
him out earlier. He traveled across
Eussia and - Siberia very rap:dly,
going with trained guides in storms
often when many men . would have
sted in some camp retreat.
After - leaving the railway, he tra
versed 1,500 miles of unknown Siberia
until near Orla, on the Okhotsk sea,
he found . the bred of reindeer he
wanted, purchased 254 head and got
them to . Baroness Korfg bay, where
shipment could be made. He then
retraced his steps to Vladivostock
under very trying . conditions. . In
one instance broke-' a trail through
snow waist deep for a distance of 100
miles.: . This he accomplished by rid
ing the reindeer ahead, under saddle,
taking turns as they became exhaust
ed with the continued effort. Arriv
ing at Vladivostock, Lieutenant Bert
holf chartered a Russian tramp
steamer ' and returned to the point
where he had the reindeer located,
loaded them safely and landed them
in excellent condition at Port Clar
ence, - where they ' are now - being
wintered. i .
Increase in Loss of Life on Steamboats Last
Washington, Oct. 28. The annual
report of General James A. Dumont,
supervising Inspector General of
steam vessels the last fiscal year, has
been made public. It shows that 9,773
vessels -were inspected during the
year, a decrease of 80 from the figures
for the preceeding year. The total
loss of life on steam vessels last year
was 340, an increase of 140 over the
previous year. By the loss of the

Auburn, N. Y., Oct 29. Leon Czol
gosz, the assassin of President Mc-
Kinley, was electrocuted at 7:12:30.
Czolgosz passed a quiet nieht. He
slept nearly all night. He awoke
finally at 4:45 o'clock.
He suffered a sight nervous attack
late yesterday, but remained sullen
and stoic up to the time the prison
closed at 10 o'clock. He refused to
heed the words of the priests' who
came to urge spiritual nrena.mt.inn
for death and declined to re-embrann
Roman Catholicism or to renounce
anarchism. Czolgosz showed no
strength of love for kin, nor did he
turn to any of those higher consider
ations which ordinarily claim the
thoughts of men occupying his posi- i
tion. He may have suffered untold -torture,
but outwardlv he seemed
sullen and indifferent. The statn is
not to surrender possession of his"
body, and by.sundown it will have
been secretly interred in ground con
trolled by the officials of Auburn
Czolgosz held his last two inter
views last night, the first with Super
intendent uoiuns and the second :

of the interviews were brief.
