Schley Court of Inquiry Said to Be Cause . of Much Dissatisfaction. Washington, Oct. 31. President Roosevelt seemi 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 wag 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 in the department, were looked for. They came yesterday, when it was announced that Rear Admiral Crown inshield, chief of the bureau of navt agtion, would be suspended before the usual term of four years lor which he was chosen expires. His successor will be Rear 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 Roosevelt wag assistant secretary of the navy be 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 uregon around the Horn to Cuban waters, while Mr. Roosevelt as strong ly favored it, and won, with Secre tary Long's help. Officials of the navy department unhesitntingly say that it is honey combed with a partisan feeling for Sampson, lhese admissions, coupled with the Hackett and Crowuinshield 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. MOST MAY' ESCAPE. Certificate of Reasonable Doubt Granted by Q Supreme Court Judge. New York, Oct. 31. 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 ap peared 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, as plagiarism is not a criminal offense under the laws of the United States, BRITISH CAMP ATTACKED. Boers Were Repulsed Only After the Most Severe Fighting. London, Oct. 31. A dipsatch from Lord Kitchener, dated Pretoria, says he has received reports of the fighting October 24 near Great Marico river, when Dclarey and Kemp attacked a British force and were only repulsed after severe fighting, leaving 40 dead on the field, including Commandant Omstireysen. The British lost 28 men killed and 55 wounded. The Boers carried light British wagons. The Rcpblicans appear to have paid special attention to the guns, as 37 gunners and drivers were killed or wounded. Lord Kitchener mentions a num ber of minor affairs, and says this week's "bag '"consisted of 74 Boers killed, 16 wounded and 53 made pris oners. In addition, 45 Boers surren dered, and the British captured 471 rifles, 75,950 rounds of ammunition, 216 wagons, 50 horses and 8,000 head of cattle. Blizzard at Butts. Butte, Mont., Oct. 31.

Lack of Food Having Its Effect Upon Natives One Cause of Samar Trouble. Manila, Oct. 30. The constabulary report a fight with insurgents near Passi, province of Ilo Ilo, island of Panay, in which 25 insurgents were killed, together with a quantity of arms and ammunition captured. News from General Hughes regard ing conditions in Cebu are encourag ing. Lorega surrendered with his entire force and one cannon and seven rifles, while General Hughes is negotiating for the surrender of Maxilo, who styles himself "Governor Politico-Militar. " His surrender will mean the pacification of the island. Lack of food and the harrassing effects of the aggressive tactics now pursued by the American forces are having their influence upon the na tives. In many places, where rice is doled out by the government, only enough is given for one meal, so that it is hardly possible for any large amount to find its way to the insurg ents. It is believed that the recent manifestations in the island of Samar were chiefly due to the lack of food. The first labor problem growing out of the new tariff has arisen. A hat and umbrella factory, employing 600 hands, has found it necessary to close. The lawyers are making a protest to the commission, urging protection, as the same goods from Germany can be sold at half the price it takes" to manufacture them here. In an attack by insurgents on the municipal police and scouts at Sa bang, one scout was killed and two of the police were captured. The in surgents secured two Krag-Jorgenson rifles, two shotguns and 200 rounds of ammunition. Dispatches from Catbalogan, Samar, say that stringent and ener getic measures are being taken to sup press the insurrection in that island. General Smith has notified all the presidents and head men of the pueb los that they must" surrender all arms and turn over the persons implicated in the Balangiga massacre before November 6, threatening that other wise the presidents will be sent to the island of Guam, the village destroyed and the property confiscated. MILLION DOLLAR FRAUD. 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 to deal with in this city, members of the firm of J. C. Fisher & go., 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 ana told what exceptional chances there were to invest money, and that large re turns could be expected. Pools were formed mid 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 down 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 times the original stock, some investor became suspicious and called the attention of the authorities to the matter. ON CONSERVATIVE LINES. Work of Board Reorganizing Chinese Govern mentStudy Western Methods. Washington, Oct. 30. The state department has received from Minis ter Conger at Pekin, a translation of a series of preliminary regulations adopted by the recently organized Chinese Board of National Adminis tration, charged with the reorganiza tion of that government on modern and efficient lines. The sentiments expressed are conservative, says Mr. Conger, and it is ' made plain that there is no intention to imitate the too brisk pace set by the reformers of 1898, but instead to study West ern methods and, without adopting V estern civilization as a whole, to adapt to Chinese conditions such ins titutions as seem likely to add strength to the state. Ex-Bank Official Arrested. ' Halifax, N. S., Oct. 30. Adam A. Harley, ex-manager of the Bank of British North America at Frederick ton, N. B.,was arrested in this city tonight on a warrant charging him with stealing $6,000 belonging to the bank. Two weeks ago he met two friends from Scotland, and one of them, it is claimed, gave him $6,000 to deposit in the bank. It is alleged he did not make the deposit. To night he was arrested on a railroad train bound for St. John. President Roosevelt's Birthday. Washington, Oct. 30. Sunday was the 43d anniversary of the birth of Prresident Roosevelt. Occurring on Sunday there was no formal celebra tion. Dr. Nichols, a friend from Baltimore, was at the White House a portico of the day and in the evening Commander Cowles was a guest at din ner. The president attended religi ous services at Grace Reformed church as usual. CHIEF OF B0L0MEN MALVAR APPOINTS HIMSELF AS - CAPTAIN GENERAL. Hal Issued a Proclamation to the Natives to That Effect All Filipinos Caught Aiding the Americans, and Also All Who Surren der to Them, Will Be Considered Trait ors and Treated Accordingly. Manila, Oct. 31. Malvar has issued a new proclamation, appointing hinv self captain general and reorganizing the Filipino army under two lieu tenant generals and four generals of divisions. Every guide caught aid ing the Americans will be treated immediately as a traitor. Those who surrender to the Americans will be treated in the same manner. Malvar considers his own appoint ment to be temporary, until the meeting of the general assembly of liberators. He congratulates the soldiers on the good work Hhey are doing in the field and also those who are working for the cause of freedom and liberty in the cities. A hat and umbrella factory, em ploying 600 hands, which recently found it necessary to close, the ac tion constituting the first labor prob lem growing out of the new tariff, has decided to remove to Hong Kong. BERTHOLF SUCCESSFUL. Fulfilled the Object of His Jonrney to Siberia Secured 254 Reindeer. Seattle, Oct. 31. . Dr. Sheldon Jackson, general agent for Hie 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 disapppcared on the steppes. His mission, as sfated above, was to procure a herd of rein deer of larger size than those now in 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 Claience with a herd of rein deer. He was not expected to return for a year or more, but his ueiial re sourceful ability evidently brought him out earlier. Ho traveled across Russia and Siberia very rapidly, going with trained guides in " storms often when many men would have rested m 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 milce. 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 tlie reindeer located, loaded them safoly and landed them in excellent condition at Port Clar ence, where they are now being wintered. Four Masted Schooner Ashore. Tort Townsend, Wash., Oct. 31. As a result of last night's storm, a four-masted schooner is ashore on Smith Island, and seas are breaking over her. A report was brought here this evening by the steamer Lydia Thompson, which passed the scene of the disaster late in the afternoon, but, owing to the heavy seas, was un able to approach close enough to ascertain the name of the vessel. Shipping men say the stranded ves sel is the E. K. Wood, from San Pedro, bound for Whatcom. Czolgosz Hanged in Effigy. New York. Oct. 31. Czolgosz was hanged in effigy at Hampstead, L.

The local govern ment lioard has issued a statement that two persons died from the plague in October at Liverpool, according to the bacteriological tests, made after the deaths. Three susjiected cases and all who have been in contact with the sujiected persons have been placed under obseivation. The board says that the plague was at fi r.-t thought to 1 influenza. SHIPS FROM NOME. Two More Steamers From the Icy North Bring 1,200 Passengers. Port Townsend, Wash., Oct. 29. Two steamers arrived here from Nome today, bringing over 1,200 pas sengers, the Senator bringing 525 and the Garrone 700. The Senator sailed from Nome October 19 and for several days before sailing the icy fingers of winter had fastened themselves on , Nome and vicinity. Snow was falling and ice had formed and preparations were being made for a long, cold winter. When the Senator sailed the steam- x ship Queen was at Nome and the . Roanoke was at St. Michael. A furious northern gale was blowing. -The Queen, Valencia and Roanoke' will be the last steamers from Nome, and they will bring about 2,000 peo ple, and there are many more who would return if transportation could be secured, besides a large number of destitute who would be compelled to remain at Nome and face an Arctic winter, depending upon charity. INSPECTOR'S REPORT. Increase in Loss of Life on Steamboats Last Year. 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.

ENTOMBED BY CAVE-IN. Unsuccessful Efforts Made to Rescue Two Utah Miners. Salt Lake, Utah, Oct. 29. A tele phone messcge from Bingham, Utah, tonight states that up to 10 P. M., rescuing parties had failed to reach Charles Nutting and William Ander son, the two miners who were entomb ed in a cave-in in the Highland Boy mine, At that hour it was not known whether the imprisoned men were dead or alive, their signals hav ing ceased after midnight last night. Great difficulty is being encountered in reaching the place where the men are located." The walls of the tunnel are constantly crumbling, not only impeding the work of rescue, but also endangering the lives of the miners who were endeavoring to save their entombed comrades.
