cil tonight instructed its secretary
to send a communication to the
manufacturers asking for a 10 per

KITCHENER WANTS MEN.

British Accused or Brutality.
New York, Oct. 23. A London
Times special to the New York Times
Referring to the fresh outbreak of
Anglophobia in Vienna, a corres
pondent of the Austrian Capital
quotes the especially influential Cath
olic organ, The Vaterland, which
publishes an artiole headed : "Lord
Kitchener as a Hangman." . It says
the commmander-in-chief of the
British forces in South Africa, in
despair of being able to conquer the
Boers by honest war, has for a long
time had recourse to brutality. . His
bloodthirstyness was formerly re
strained by the British government,
but it now appears that a free hand
has been given to him. :
The Vaterland goes on to. say that
the announcement that Command
ant General Botha will meet violence
by reprisals will convince all that the
Boers are not intimidated, but only
exasperated by Lord Kitchener's in
humanity. The sanguinary seed sown
by the British Commander will pro
duce a harvest of blood and none
can blame the Boer leaders if they
have recourse to a terrible tribution.

Griivtd Over His -Approaching Separation
From Army Life.
Salt Lake, Oct. 23. Grief over sep
aration from army life, with which
he had been associated for 40 years,
and to which he was greatly attached,
is believed to have been the direct
cause of the suicide at Fort Douglas
of August Lange, ordnance sergeant.
Lange was to have been retired with
in a few days, and rather than re-enter
civil life he hanged himself in one
of the buildings of the fort. Lange,
who was 61 years of age, enlisted at
the outbreak of the civil war, partici
pating in many of its historic battles,
and was wounded during the battle of
Spottsylvania. In later years he took
part in numerous campaigns against
Western Indians, and for the past 15
years has been ordnance sergeant at
Fort Douglas. He left a widow and
two grown daughters, who reside in
On Arc Lamp With Microphone Attachment
Will Transmit Sounds Through Another.
St. Petersburg, Oct. 23. A member
of the faculty of Moscow Imperial
Technical school recently discovered
that a microphone attached to an elec
tric lamp by wire will transmit sounds
through the medium of another arc
lamp. Repeated experiments were
made in which the two lamps were
separated by a thick wall. The in
ventor read in a low voice a lecture on
his discovery, and his words, spoken
into the microphone, were comfortably
audible in the next room. With char
acteristic carelessness, the Russian
newspapers failed to state whether the
lamps were burning.but it is probable
that this is to be assumed.

The envoy adds that the people are

New York, Oct. 23. A Panama

A party of revolutionists, said to be

SHOT BY THE TURKS
MACEDONIAN FUGITIVES KILLED
ON THE FRONTIER.
One of Them, a Brother of Mme. Tillka,
Miss Stone's Companion The Bulgarian
Government Prepared' to Act Vigorously
If; Sufficient Proof Is Forthcoming
Tnrkish Methods Brutal.
London, Oct. 24. The Morning
.Leader publishes the following com
munication, dated Saturday, Oct., 19'
"On the frontier near Grossbeloo,
yesterday, five fugitives from Banista,
Macedonia, among them a brother of
Mme.l8iIka,Miss Stone a companion,
were shot dead by Turkish frontier
guards while eneavoring to cross into
Bulgarian territory. United States
Consul General Dickinson, believing
that they were members of the Amer
ican Mission church, has demanded
an official inquiry. Great brutality
exists in the district between Banista
and the frontier, Turkish officials
have arrested over 200 residents ol
Bulgarian nationality and subjected
them to torture in order to wring
from them information as to Miss
Stone's whereabouts. Several of them
died under torture. The Bulgarian
authorities, llikewise, worried over
the affair, are continuously arresting
fugitives from Macedonia, and this
causes bad blocrtl."
"It is reported from Sofia, " says
the Vienna correspondent of the Daily
Mail, "that United States Consul
General Dickinson has received intel
ligence from shepherds that Miss
tone was seen atJJ akooua, in Turkish
territory, about two hours' journey
from the Bulgarian frontier."
Dr. Dickinson thinks that if the
original Macedonian promoters of the
abduction can be arrested, the brig
ands who acted under their orders
would accept a smaller ransom. As
the Bulgarian government are pre
pared to act vigorously if sufficient
proof is forthcoming, says the Vienna
correspondent of the Times, this
method of proceeding may perhaps
HAD NARROW ESCAPE.
Mine Superintendent's Dwelling Partially De
stroyed by Miscreant.
Wilkesbarre, Pa., Oct. 23. A das
tardly attempt to blow up the house
of Reese Morgan, superintendent of
the Murray mine,and kill himself and
family was made last night. Mr.
Morgan's home was on Grant street,
one of the residence thoroughfares of
this city. He had just opened the
gate to get into the house when a
terrific explosion occurred which
nearly knocked him off his feet.
When he was able to collect himself
he saw that a portion of his dwelling
had been wrecked. A further inves
tigation showed that the whole rear
portion of the house had been torn
away by the explosion. The general
supposition is that some mine em
ploye who formerly worked for Mr.
Morgan; and who imagined he
had a grievance, is at the bottom
of the plot. .

FAMINE IN RUSSIA.
Government Relief Is Necessary In Five Mors
St. Petersburg, Oct. 22. Acting
under additional information from
the governor of the province of Sa
mara, the minister of the interior has
officially proclaimed famine condi
tions in five more districts iuJlhis
province. This means that the bad
harvest has already mado itself so
keenly felt that a special medical and
relief organization is deemed neces-'
sary for these districts. It is likely
that the list will be added to from
time to time during the winter.
The minister also published today a
detailed report about the relief given
to seven Siberian districts. . Forty
thousand roubles were assigned. The
present indications are that little in
formation about the famine will be
published in Russian papers which is
not given out by the minister of the
interior. The papers have been given
to understand that incorrect informa
tion or "colored" articles about the
famine will not be tolerated, and the
Russian editors know when they have
been spoken to. The bad harvests in
portions of Siberia last year and this
year has had the effect of turning a
part of the tide of Siberian emigra
tion back toward Russia. According
to an official source, 77,745 emigrants
and 519,721 men whom the wammt
communes sent to spy out the land
wen. 10 ouieria between January 1
and September 17, and 19,788 emi
grants and 12,619 envoys returned.
In addition to famine a circum

occasions the return of ninnv is .!
exhaustion of available farm land.
It is a fact that is not sufficiently un
derstood abroad that portions of Si
beria are already fully occupied.
This is true of nearly all good and
conveniently accessible agricultural
land in West Siberia. Recent settlors
have been assigned lands distant from
the railroad or navigable rivers, or
have received forest and marsh lands
which it would not pay them to till
under present conditions. With
