by him in his annual report. Many
people throughout the country have
written commenting on the projected

and have submitted some suggestions
calculated in their opinon to make the
scheme more feasible. As a whole,
the correspondents indicate a rather
general commendation.

Special Naval Board l>raw» I |> Elabor­
ate Plana.
Washington, Nov. 25.—The special
naval laiard appointed to examine into
the cost of armor-making will present
to congress details of a plant which it
has designed.
It will cost more than
$3,000,000 ami have a capacity of 0,000
tons of armor ]>er annum, which is
alxnit the combined capacity of the two
armor plants now supplying the navy.
The processes of manufacture will in­
clude the very latest developments in
the art of metallurgy, and, while the
plans contemplate the manufacture of
harveyized nickel-steel armor, accord­
ing to the methods used in the reforg­
ing process, they will admit of easy
adaptation to the new' secret Krupp
processes of hardening armor by the use
of gas. The plans are said to be per­
fect in every detail, and, having been
drawn under the direction of one of the
leading experts of the country, the
specifications are said to be so well de­
fined that no difficulty is expected to
arise in securing straight bids. The
board has prepared the form of adver­
tisement calling for bids for erecting
this plant. As congress desired that
infomration, Secretary Long will soon
issue the advertisement. It is the pur-
pose to have all of the plans in the sec­
retary’s hands ny the first of next
month, and, if the advertisement is
promptly sent out, it is thought that
within three months at the latest con­
gress will have before it full informa­
tion as to the cost of an armor plant, as
well as offers from existing plants to
sell out to the government.
A Syracuse Clergyman Inclined to Fa­
vor Both.
Syracuse, N. Y., Nov. 25. — Rev. Dr.
James R. Day, chancellor of Syracuse
university, and a Methodist clergyman,
says in a public address:
“I believe that some such game as
football, which contains elements of
roughness and danger, is necessary to
the development of many young men in
the universities and seminaries.
future is tending towards a more open
playing of the game. I do not like the
hurling of one mass of humanity against
another until one or the other becomes
exhausted, but I do not like joining
the universal outcry against the game.
“The American people are easily in­
fluenced into a general epidemic of re­
form, but I think football has come to
stay. It is encouraged by the faculty of
Syracuse unversity.
Football would
fail in one of its chief features, I
think, if it should not teach the young
man self-control. A man who goes
through a season of being trodden upon
and knocked down deserves fairly a
diploma in the art of self-control. It
is very good discipline.”
The chancellor further said.
“I am told that many of the students
attended the theater and listened to
Mr. Jefferson. Now, 1 am a parson,
and my privileges are restricted some­
what. I believe with the church in
regard to the theater in general. I am
sorry that anybody thinks it wrong to
see Jefferson. I believe that such men
as he would redeem the stage from any
doubtful characteristics.”

Goluchowski Gravely Warns
Europe of Danger.
Competition of A inerlcan Nation* Fright­

— A
Vienna. Nov. 23.—Count Goluchow­
ski, the Austro-Hungarian minister of
foreign affairs, in his annual address
yesterday before the Austrian and Hun­
garian delegations, when making an ap­
peal to all Europe to take advantage of
the present era of peace and to join
closely for the vigorous defense of con­
ditions common to European countries
as against “the crushing competition
of trans-Atlantic nations,” said:
“The turning point has been reached
in Europe which calls for the unremit­
ting attention of the governments.
The great problems of material dam­
age, which become more pressing every
year, are no longer matters for the fu­
ture, hut require to be taken in hand
instantly. The destructive competition
which trans-oceanic countries are carry­
ing on at present, and which is, in
part, to be expected in the immediate
future, requires prouipt and thorough
counteracting measures if the vital in­
terests of the people of Europe are not
to be gravely compromised.
“We must fight shoulder to shoulder
against a common danger, and arm
ourselves for the struggle with all the
means at our disposal. Just as the
16th and 17th centuries were absorbed
by religious wars; just as the 18th cen­
tury was marked by the triumph of lib­
eral ideas, ami just as the 19th century
has been notable for the appearance of
great questions of nationality, so will
the 20th century be for Europe a period
marked by a struggle for existence in
the politico-commercial sphere. Euro­
pean nations must close ranks in order
to successfully defend their existence.
“May this be realized everywhere,
and may the epoch of peaceful develop­
ment we now confidently anticipate be
employed in collecting our strength and
devoting our services chiefly to this
Speech Excited Great. Interest.
London. Nov. 23.—The Berlin corre­
spondent of the Daily Chronicle says:
"Count Goluchowski’s statement,
with reference to the struggle with
America has excited the most wide­
spread interest here.
It is believed
that before he made public so remarka­
ble an enunciation of policy, he had
the consent of the other powers, with
the exception of England, and spoke as
the mouthpiece of those governments.”
The Vienna correspondent says:
“Count Goluchowski’s appeal to Eu­
rope to unite against the trans-oceanic
countries is regarded rather as a pla­
tonic desire than as a concerted pro­
gramme. Thus far, no practial attempt
in that direction is intended, at least
not by Austria ”
lip Over the Coolidge
Crescent City, Cal., Nov. 23.—There
is much excitement in and about Chet­
co as the result of the killing of young
Coolidge by the Van Pelts, over the
townsite question. Coolidge, senior, a
capitalist of Silverton, Or,, has offered
a reward of $500 for the arrest and con­
viction of the various members of the
Van Pelt party, principals and acces­
sories to the murder, and several par­
ties are out from Chetco and Gold
Beach patrolling the roads and trails.
Joe Alvin, a half-breed, suspected of
being one of the Van Pelt party, has
been shot and probably fatally wounded
by a posse.
E. C. Hughes and Sink Van Pelt
have been arrested here by Sheriff Fer­
guson at the request of Sheriff Turner,
of Curry county. Or., as suspects in the
Coolidge shooting, but both protest
their innocence and say they can prove
an alibi. They have offered to go to
Chetco without requiring the sheriff to

The Diamonds Were Greased.
New York. Nov. 23.—An attempt to
defraud the government was prevented
by the United States appraiser today,
when an importation of 200 or 300
karats of small diamonds were invoiced
at about $24 per karat. The diamonds
had evidently been put into a solution
of resin and grease, thus dulling their
color to such au extent that the dia­
monds ap|H>ared to be of little value.
When washed in alcohol and hot water,
the appraiser of the diamonds found
them of flue quality and exceptionally
well cut. The duties and penalties
upon this invoice will now amount to
more than $4,500; whereas, under a
correct invoice, less than $1,000 would
have been collected.

Brazil, Ind., Nov. 23.—A train on
the Chicago A- Indiana coal road, car­

was wrecked near Coal bluffs thia

The Competitor’s Crew Out of the Jaws
of Death.
New York, Nov. 24.—The steamer
Saratoga, from Havana, having bn
board the released men of the Comjieti-
tor crew, has been reported entering the
harbor. The men are:
Captain Alfredo Laborde.
William Gildea.
Ona Melton.
William Keavitt.
Charles Bernett, an Englishman.
The five men were in fairly good
health and excellent spirits on reaching
quarantine. Captain Laborde suffers
somewhat from paralysis, which he
contracted during his long confinement
in the Cabanas fortress. Joseph A.
Springer, the United States vice-con­
sul at Havana, was also a passenger on
the Saratoga. Mr. Springer declined
to talk for publication.
The released men wore the clothes in
which they were clad at the time of
their capture, on April 25, 1896, at
Berraeoa, San Catalino, Cuba.
Another happy passenger on the
Saratoga was Julio Arago v Quesada,
the young Cuban insuigent who was or­
dered to be shot by Weyler, but was
pardoned by General Blanco, a friend
of the prisoner's father.
The six men who had escaped the
fate of the Virginias captives were
greeted upon their arrival by an enthu­
siastic crowd, who gave them a hearty
welcome, but the poor wretches were
too weak to respond to the cheers which
had been given in their honor.
Alleged Object of the Troponed Smelter
Com bi lie.
New York, Nov. 24. — Representa­
tives of several silver mining and re­
fining works of the United States and
Mexico will meet in New York this
week to form, if possible, a combina­
tion agency to control the price of sil­
ver futures.
The price of silver for future deliv­
ery is always less than the price of
cash silver, and the smelters want to
equalize prices. It is .said that the
smelters hope by their combination to
stiffen the price of silver and eventu­
ally reduce the output, although they
deny the report that they intend to
form a silver trust.
Among the works to be represented
at the conference are the International
Metal Company, of New York; the
Omaha & Grant Smelting Company, of
Omaha; the Mexican Smelting (.Com­
pany of Monterey; the Pliildelphia
Smelting & Refining Company, of Pue­
blo, and the Guggenheim Smelting
Company, of Port Amboy, N. J.

Prospects for Hawaiian Treaty Good —
. Cuban Question Depends l'pon
President’s Attitude.
Washington, Nov. 22.—Senator W.
E. Chandler, of New Hampshire, in an
interivew regarding legislation at the
coming session of congress said:
“Senator Lodge proposes pushing the
measure looking to the restriction of
immigration anil demanding its passage
without delay. Bills proposing to bar
the undesirable foreign element from
entering this country are now pending
in both the house and senate, and
there is no doubt that the two houses
will be able to agree upon a bill. The
house measure lays restrictions on what
are called “birds of passage,” but the
senate bill does not. The class refer­
red to is that which lives along the
northern and southern border lines of
the country, and embraces Mexicans
and Canadians who work daily in the
United States, but who live in their
native countries. This part of the
hill, in my judgment, eventually will
be omitted, and the senate bill, which
applies to immigrants from European
and Oriental countries, will be passed.
“Some action, I believe, will be taken
looking to the relief of the Cuban in­
surgents. Of course, the Republican
policy will largely depend upon the
president’s message, but, my opinion is
that he will leave the entire matter tc
the judgment of congress.
“The prospects for the ratification of
the Hawaiian treaty are excellent.
The Republicans will stand by it to a
unit, and many Democrats will do like­
wise. I think the necessary two-thirds
vote will be secured.
“As to financial legislation, especial­
ly as to the revision of the banking
laws, I cannot see how any such legis­
lation can be passed.”

Two New Counterfeits.
Havana, Nov. 24.—General Pando
started for this city by train last Satur­
day, according to official announce­
ment, to take charge of the campaign
against the insurgents. He was ac­
companied by all his staff, and was es­
corted by a company of artillery.
It is stated on good authority, how­
ever, that Pando lias been commis­
sioned by Captain-General Blanco to
enter into communication witli the in­
surgent leaders, with a view to arrang­
ing for peace. This statement is based
upon accurate knowledge of all the
facts. Pando first secured the release
from confinement of Damien Caballero»
who had been imprisoned for acting as
a spy for the insurgents. Pando fur­
nished Caballero, whois god-father of
Rabi, the man looked upon as being
the backbone of the insurgent govern­
ment in the province of Santiago de
Cuba, witii a considerable sum of
money and caused him to be attended
to Manzanillo, where a good force was
placed at his disposal. Pando's peace
emmissary was also furnished official
documents empowering him to act in
behalf of the Spanish commander.
Pando instructed Caballero to offer
army General Rabi high rank in the
Spanish army and a large sum of
money to be distributed among the
other insurgent leaders of that part of
Cuba, and in addition, a large amount
of money for himself in the event of
his succeeding in arranging terms of
Although Caballero has not returned,
confidential advices reaching Spanish
officials here seem to indicate that he
has so far been unsuccessful. It is un­
derstood that Rabi replied that he be­
lieved tlie successful ending of the war
in favor of the insurgents was ap­
proaching, that the Cubans, with tlie
aid of -the United States, will gain
their independence, and therefore he
desires to continue fighting tlie Span­
iards until the final victory is won.
Caused by Spontaneous Combustion—A
Narrow Escape.
San Francisco, Nov. 24.—The Call
says: The coal bunkers in the United
States battle-ship Oregon caught fire
Sunday evening from spontaneous com­
bustion, and for over eight hours the
crew worked with a vengeance to
smother what looked like a costly blaze.
There were over 250 tons of coal in the
vessel, and prompt action alone saved
the ship and fuel. The fire is supposed
to have started from water leaking into
the coal bunkers. This would eventu­
ally cause a terrific heat from accumu­
lating gasses.
Luckily, the fire was
discovered before it had gained much
An alarm was immediately given,
and orders were issued to remove the
coal from the vessel to the wharf.
Steampipes were attached and connec­
tion made with the lower part of the
vessel in an attempt to smother what
fire might have been in other parts of
the ship. The men went to work with
a will, but the task was larger than had
at first been supposed. The work was-
done with difficulty, as the smoke hin­
dered the men in their attempts to
quickly put it out.
During the whole night after the fire
had been discovered, the entire crew
labored in removing the smoking and
blazing coal, and it was not until day­
light that the men were allowed to
leave their work. The warship will
be drydocked within a few days and
proDerly righted, after which she will
»be coaled and her ammunition placed
on board, after which she will be ready
for action.
