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
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

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 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,
Boers Were Repulsed Only After the Most
Severe Fighting.
London, Oct. 31. A dipsatch from

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
Lord Kitchener mentions a num
ber of minor affairs, and says this

Blizzard at Butts.
Butte, Mont., Oct. 31. Butte was
struck by a blizzard early this even

there was considerable suffering in
various portions of the city where no
provision had been made for the
appearance of winter at such an early

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.

as the same goods from Germany can

bang, one scout was killed and two of
the police were captured. The in
surgents secured two Krag-Jorgenson

of ammunition.
Dispatches from Catbalogan,
Samar, say that stringent and ener
getic measures are being taken to sup
press the insurrection in that island.

and the property confiscated.
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.
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

Hal Issued a Proclamation to the Natives to
That Effect All Filipinos Caught Aiding

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

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
'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
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

marched with the elaborately con
structed effigy to Smith's bote', where

a fire of tar barrels was started.
Plague Deaths at Liverpool.
London, Oct. 31. The local govern
ment lioard has issued a statement
that two persons died from the plague

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.
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
