At one time Cailles offered a reward of $10 for the heads of all Americans brought to him, and more recently of- fered a reward of $10,000 for the head of Captain Edward N. Jones, Jr., of the Eighth infantry. Cailles was a man with considerable lnfuence with the Filipino people and an aggressive fighter. He kept hls fol- lowers well in hand. his system of mo- bilizaHon being excellent. In the mountains of Laguna province, where Cailles practically eonfiued his opera- tions, he had many advantages over the American troops frequently sent to dislodge him and rendered their efforts a French half-caste, and during futile.

Philadelphia. June 17.--The fourth annual convention of the Federation of American Zionists began here yesmr- day with a larger attendance than ever before in its history. Delegates from every section of the country were present. The aim of Zionism is to es- tablish in Palestine a legal lmme for the oppressed and persecuted Hebrews of Russia, Roumania and other Euro- pean countries, and to furnish them with an asylum by consent of the pow- ers, where they will have an oppor- tunity to begin life anew, under more favorable circumstances. Greetings were received fl~)m Baron Rothschild and Max Nordau. An effort was made to amend the constitution by making it obligatory upon every member of the federation before becoming a delegate to the con- vention to purchase a share in the Jewish Colvnial Trust of London. The amendment was voted down. A committee, appointed to devise ways and means of establishing a He- brew newspaper includes Rabbi S. S. Wise of Portland. Christlmn Endettvor Convention.

C., June 17.--Mrs. McKinley's first request after her tll- hess was to have Marine Band ecru certs resumed at the White House. She received lady friends, in the sick chamber and had an old-time Saturday night. Yesterday the President spent most of the time with his sick wife. Improvements on the President's home at Canton are about completed, and everything will be in readiness for oc- cupany by the 1st of July. If Mrs. Mc- Kinley's condition permits her re. moval by that time she will be taken to her Ohio home, where it is believed the chances for permanent improve- meat will be greater than in Washiug- ton. Hope is expressed that she may be able to travel by the 1st of July. National Edltorlll Association. Buffalo, N. Y., June 15.~When the National Editorial Association con- vened yesterday the law committee precipitated a warm debate by submit- ting a report in favor of excluding from the mails all newspapers that give premiums. John A. S~elcher ot New York led the opposition',to the report, which was fnally adopted. Albert Tozier of Portland Oregon, was elected president. The next con- vention will be held at Hot Springs. COLORADO'S CAPITAL Curator FerrH of the Sta te Historical collection yesterday received from James W. Abbott and J. J. Abbott of Lake City two bound volumes of the Lake City World for rlle years 1875 and 1876. and also unbound all the is. sues up to 1883. Adjutant General Gardner recent~ returned from Idaho Springs, where he mustered in 'Company I. First Regi- ment. with T. B. Crow as captain; W. F. Moscript, first lieutenant: J. Ogden, second lieutenant. The company was mustered in with thirty-five men. The board of directors of the Cham- ber of Commerce of Denver has in- dorsed the aeion ,f the Colorado State Forestry Association, asking the secretary of the interior to establish in Larimer county what is to be known as the Medicine Bow forestry reserva- tion. Peter Youngers, Jr., of Kansas, has written Secretary Shute that he has gone to Buffalo to attend the meeting of the American Nurserymen's Asso- ciation, and says that he will do every- thing within his power to see that Den- ver gets the new convention. Mr. Youngem is second vice president. When the Board of Capitol Managers gets through renovating the state house the latter will look as neat as a new pin, both inside and out. One of the most perplexing questions is what to dO with the exterior of the copltol dome. It is to be painted, but whether the coating will be a silver or a gold one remains for decision. Adjutant General Gardlner has start- ed an inspection of the state militia. Upon his return he Will make a de- tailed report to the military board. The guard Is not mustered to its full strength, and while he is gone General Gardiner will impress upon the cap- tains of each company the advisability of recruiting to war footing. C. F. Evans. manager of the Amer- ican sugar refinery at Rocky Ford, has notified Secretary Shuts that he will send her samples of every kind of su- gar made by that company loom beets. Secretary Shute says every day she has requests to see beet sugar by visitors to the state house, many of them ask- ing for samples to take ltome. At a meeting of the Board of Capitol Managers T. W. Cook & Co. were awarded the contract for tiling the large room in the basement belonging to the State Hi~toricaF Society, for $637. Architect Edbrooke was instruct- ed to prepare specifications for the cleaning of all the granite work on the building, and lead calking of all the joints on the projecting points on the outside. While the lead calking will prove rather expensive, it is claimed that It will last for years. The Colorado State Forestry Asso- ciation, through its president, W. N. Byers, has pl~epared a petition to Sec- retary of the Interior Hitchcock ask- ing him to temporarily withdraw from en~ranee certain lands along the Medi- cine Bow range In Larimer county. The land is mountainous and covered with timber, thus forming a natural water shed. Sheltered by the timber, the snow melts gradually now and the irrigators have a steady supply of wa- ter for the entire season, If the'tlm- ber is removed all the snow will dis- appear early in the year. When the asphalt walks on the north side of the capitol were laid it was found that the city of Denver made a mistake in defining the grade, and the state refused to pay to the city $3,900, the amount necessary to relay the as- phalt. That sum was deducted from the amount due the city when settle- ment was made. The Colorado Asphalt Company refused to relay the walks. and the last Legislature appropriated $3,900 for the work, instructing the board to have it done. In the mean- time the asphalt company notified the board it would relay the walks upon the new grade free of cost. The propo- sition was accepted by the board, so instead of the state being out $3,900, it Is really $7,800 to the good. ]Board of ]Pardons, At its last meeting the Board of Par- dons recommended that the. seutenos 'K of Edward O elly, imprisone~d for life for the killing of Bob Ford. be com- muted to eighteen years. He has al- ready been there half that length of time, and if his record continues as good as it has been he will be out in a little more than eight years. Bob Ford killed Jesse James, the fa- mous Missouri highwayman. Jesse was in his home hanging a picture at the time and Ford shot him in the back of the head. Though arrested for murder the governor of Missouri im- mediately pardoned Ford. That was about 1882. and for months after that time Bob Ford and his brother Charles traveled over the country and exhibit- ed themselves in museums as the slay- ers of the notorious Jesse James. Ford came to his death at Creeds, June 8, 1892. The big fire w.hlch oc- curred the Sunday before had burned Ford'ssaloon but he had put up a tent and in that temporary structure in- stalled a bar and a dance house. Ford was in the room and started to walk into the rear part of the tent with his wife, "Dot" Ford. O'Kelly was stand- ing outside and was handed a double- barreled gun by a Frenchman. It is alleged that O'Kelly then stepped in. side and called out. "Olr. Bob," and as Ford turned fired both barrels. Ford fell. O'Kelly disarmed his victim aud was arrested by Dick Plunkett, the deputy sheriff. O'Kelly was town marshal of Bachelor City and it was said at the time the shooting was over a quarrel that Ford had had with O'Kelly's mother. In his petition to the board of pardons, O'Kelly said that he shot becaqse he thought that had he hesitated,Ford would have gotten first blood, A pardon was recommended/or O1. iver Williams committed from Pueblo, December 21, 1899. for robbery, ~or a term of from five to fourteen years. The following petitions were refused: Francisco Maes, m.urder; A. J. ]ii,:E1- roy, passing counterfeit money, and L. L. Vincent, passing counterfeit money. Columbus B. Slkes~ who is serving a life sentence for murder, will not have a decision in his ease until the next meeting. He says that his allege | vie- tim, William Smidduth, is still alive. Other eases continued were C. E. Fear- ing, sentenced for bigamy from ]~ueblo eounty, and N. H. Trew sentenced from /~'lerfano county for man~laughiero WASHINGTON GOSSIP. A report said to have been publish- ed in Manila that General MacArthur was coining home by way of South Africa is emphatically denied at the War Department. Although General MacArthur could suit himself as to his route, the cabled report from Manila that he was to return by way of Na- gasaki is affirmed in the department. The government has formally com- municated ro the foreign powers the impossibility of Joining in a Joint guarantee for the payment of the Chi- nese indemnity. The difficulties in the way of such an arrangement are set forth in the communication, par- ticularly those relating to the consti- tutional restrictions on the President in making a Joint guarantee of this character. O~a the 15th inst. the President par- doned J. P. Greenwood, who pleaded guilty to embezzling postoffice funds while postmaster at Goldfield, Colo- rado. He was sentenced April 13, 1901, to pay a fine of $43 and to im- prisonment for six months in Jail at Denver. The attorney general recom- mended pardon because "it was clear- ly shown that there was no intention on the part of the prisoner to defraud the government. Greenwood stood well in the community and the gov- ernment lost nothing, the amount of tke shortage being made good. Before the industrial commission, Thomas Turnbull. representing the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce, testified concerning labor conditions In Calif~'nia. He said that, generally speaking, skilled labor receives better wages In California than in the east- ern states, where there is no similar difference in the wages of unskilled labor. He expressed the opinion that the cheapness of Chinese labor Is due almost entirely to the inefficiency of the Chinese entirely as laborers. Speaking of the Chinese, he said the sentiment in California was generally favorable to their proscription, as they were not desirable acquisitions from any point of view. A few days since Lone Wolf and twelve or fifteen other Indians. repre- senting the Kiowa, Comanche and Apache tribes, appeared before the secretary of the interior and made a verbal protest against the opening of any part of their lands in Oklahoma to settlement under the act of the last session of Congress. They were In- troduced by Judge Springer. Several of them declared that the agreement for the cession of their lands had not been secured by legitimate methods. Judge Springer presented the corn- complaints of the Indians in detail. Secretary Hltch,,ck told the Indians that he had received them only as a matter of courtesy, and that under no circumstances could he consider their presentation while their case was pending in the courts. It is under- stood that the Indians will not be re- ceived by the President on account of Mrs. McKinley's condition. Vttndstl$ at Washington. Nearly every tourist who visits Washington wants to take away a souvenir. Souvenir stores In the na- ttoual capital are as plenty as saloons, but your true souvenlr hunter wants something that he ha~ culled himself. By preference he will hammer, hew or slice it off frown some monument or landmark. That is why it costs Uncle Sam a fortune to guard his treasures of history, wonder and beauty. What- ever public building you enter, your cane, umbrella, or whatever you may have that would make a good ham- met, is taken from you and checked, and at the Congressional Library and Oorcoran Art Gallery you are watched very closely, lest you might get an op- portunity to use your heels. These two places are particularly enticing to the vandal, with all their statuary and carved marble. Unfortunately the Washington Mon- ument haw not been so well guarded, consequently it is badly scarred by the depredations of the souvenir fiends. I~side it is very O.llm in spots, the light being supplied"Dy an occa- sional incandescent lamp, along the stairway. It is in this atmusphere that vandalism flourishes. Like white ,squares and the blacks of a huge checker board stand the memorial slabs presented by the states in the Union at the time of the monument's erection, and by the societies and or- ganizations of the nation wishing their names to be immortalized at the na- tional capital. There are more than 150 ~f these, and many of them are in a distressful condition of mutilation. .Missing heads, arms, legs and drapery from statuary bear eloquent witness to the appreciation of visitors who were so favorably impressed with the monument that they couldn't tear themselves away without taking .some- thing with them to remember it by. Just exactly what value, real or semi- mental, the left ear lobe of the God- dess of Prosperity, for instance, can have for any person is hard for a sane man to understand. Somebody got it, however. At Mount Vernon there Is a small army of "spotters" on the lookout for the worker of souvenir luiquity. A quarter admission is charged and the money goes to defray the expense of guarding the place. In Washington's old home there is one thing that strikes the notice by Its contrast 'to the pre- vailing .simplicity. It is the carved mantelpiece of Carara marble in like dining room. One who is not a van- dal cannot gaze upon it without an- athematizing the whole race of relic seekers. Even with watchers In every room some individual managed to "get in his work," and knock off the~head of a galloping deer in the center of the group. The animal remained head- less for months. Then one day back came the head"tn~a little box post- marked Paris. The calprit had real- ized the evil of his ways, the villainy of hls vandalism. Said the accom- panying note, "It did not occur to me in my own country, where everything is so ~erfectly preserved, the outrage that it is to mutilate historic places for relies. Here nothing is preserved; everything Is chipped and~marred and broken by travelers like myself. I re- turn herewith, etc," Signed--not at all. The head was stuck on, the glue stained the marble, and the milk white deer has a y~llow streak around him neck. FERRY BOAT SINKS WITH.OVER ONE THOUSAND PASSENGERS New York, June 15.--The wooden side-wheeler Northfleld. which has been in the service of the Staten Isl- and Ferl'y Company for the past thir- ty-eight years, was rammed last night by the steel hulled prepellor Maueh Chunk. used as a ferry beat by the Central I~tilroad of New Jersey. The collisio~ occurred just off the Staten Island ferry slip at the foot of White- hall street, and in less than twenty minutes afterward the Northfidid, of way was the cause of the disaster. Captain Abraham Johnson was in charge tf the Northfleld and Captain S. C. Griffin was in command of the Mauch Chunk. Each lays the blame for the collision on the other. The Northfleld. with a load of pas. sengers, variously estimated at 800 and 1,200, at 621 p. m. started out of the west slip at Whitehall street for St. George, Staten Island, and at 5:53 p. m. the Mauch Chunk left the railroad which was crowded with passengers, slip ~at Communpow for Whitehall sank at the outer end of the Spanish street. The latter craft was abreast line pier, in the East river, of the barge office at the Battery when The t~iaurh Chunk. whreh was badly the Ncrthfleld came out of the slip. damaged, landed two dozen passen- An exchange of whistles between gers who were aboard of her.

When, however, two call for help. A few of the North- field's passengers were hurt in the ac- cident and the police believe that some lives were lost. Captain Daniel Gully of the tugboat Mutual, who saw the ferry boats crash together, says that immediately after the collision between twenty-five and thirty of the passengers leaped into the water and that many of those per- ished. Captain Gully also declared that he is sure that over 100 of the North- field's passengers were drowned. The captains of other tugboats who were early on the scene, are inclined, how- ever. to think that the disaster was not so serious as regards loss of life. Thus far no dead bodies have been recov- ered. The reason for such difference of opinion as to the extent of the disaster "is that the wildest excitement pre- vailed on the Northfleld. The tug Mu- tual salved in all about seventy.five per- sons from the North field and the tugs Unity and Arrow saved between them 150 persons. Two policemen of the Old Slip station claim to have rescued nearly thirty people between them. As soon as the crowd which had followed the sinking ferry boat along the river front were able to render any aid they worked with a will, and in many 1u- stances men sprang into the water to save llf~. The greatest service was rendered by the tug beats, which cir- cled around the Northfleld and made a bridge to the Spanish line ,pier. Men and women clambered over the tugs to the shore. The swift running flood tide and the q' testion of which boat had the right firemen ran up on deck to save them- selves from the inflow of water and the Northfleld was being driven at full speed up th~ East river instead of down towardStaten island, and all the time screeching for help, they knew that something serious had happened. Then commenced the panic, which continued until the Northfleld went down. At no time was the Northfield more than 500 feet out in the river be- yond the bulkhead line, but the tide was running with the velocity of a mill race. and had the vessel sunk out in ~he stream only the tugs would have been able to give assistance. Captain Abraham Johnson of ti~e Northfield was arrested about mid- nigh7 on a charge of criminal negli. gence. Captain Griffin of the Mauch Chunk went to his home in Jersey City no~ long after the aeeideut occurred. Offi- cers of the Jersey Central Tallroad gave assurances that Captain Griffin would make his appearance in court to answer to a technical charge of man- slaughter, t The only person reported missing up to midnight was George H. Kopper. Janitor of the Crhnlnal Court buLld- lng. There were twelve teanis on tho Northfield and they all perished. The officials of the Staten Island ferryboat sold that there were prob- ably not over 600 passengers on the Northfleld at the time of the collision. The passengers say that the usuM rush hour crowd was aboard, and that it numbered fully 1,200 men, women and children. ROUGH WEATHER FOR JUNE AT VARIOUS COLORADO POINTS Pueblo, Colo., June 15.--(Denver News Special.)~Snow shovels were got out by business men In that portion of the city south of the river late yes- terday afternoon to clean from their sidewalks two lnchea of hail which came down in about twenty minutes. In some places the ~tll:was driven into drifts that reached~t depth of eight or ten inches. Streets, sidewalks and roofs were so covered as to give the appearance of midwinter. North of the river there was considerable hall. the storm sweeping in from the west and traveling southeast. Some of the hailstones were as large as marbles and reports of damage are expected from ranchmen having berries and oth- er small fruits. Reports coming tn last night from ranches east of the city along the Ar. kansas, in the highly cultivated sec- tion around Vineland, Artman and Av- ondale, are to the effect that while there was a drenching rain with some hail no damage was done. Off to the southwest the hall was severe, but in that section less damage is likely to result than east of the city. Boulder, Colo., June 15.--Boulder county was vlstted by'~[ l~ storm be- tween 3 and 4 @doCk ~day morn. ing, followed by a ~torm which lasted all day. F~r~_in from the surrounding country s~yo~tl~at the dam- age was great between' Marshall and Longmont, though the hail belt was not greater than a quarter of a mile in width on the average. In places it spread out for a mlle. Its general course followed what is known as "Gunbarrel road," going north from the coal camps to Longmont. Its southern terminus was the Shanahan ranch at Marshall. Alfalfa was laid low~ but it is thought it can be saved. Wheat was cut and pelted into the ground to such a degree as to be a total loss. The hall was of unusual size. Thomas Kineale, the water com- mlssloner of District No. ~], says at N! Wet the hailstones were an inch in|di- ameter. At White Book the hail lay six luches deep at 7 o'clock this morn- ing. Victor, Colo., June 14.~A heavy rain and snow storm occurred here about 1 o'clock this afternoon. Hall also felL The weather has not cleared to-night. Cripple Creek, Colo., June 14.--Th~ has been one of the worst days in th~ matter of weather that the camp ha~ seen In many a day. At an early hou~ this morning until 6 o'clock to-night it has been raining and snowing ab most continuously. The snow that fell in Gripple Creek and Victor almost melted as soon as it struck the ground. but the hills and mouutalns show a covering of snow In places several Inches in depth. Granada, Colo., June 14.~A hea~ rain fell here this afternoon. The wind blew a gale during the raiu and forced the water into every creviee of houses and staeks of hay. Hall fell during the latter part of the storm, do- ing much damage to gardens and some to fruit. The rain fell so heavily an~ with such force that many chickens were drowned before they could reach shelter. One person reports a loss of nearly 100 in this way. Some damage was done the alfalfa already cut, but t~ts is balanced many times over by the benefit to the range which was in very bad condition from the late dry weather. Holyoke, Colo., June "14.--Rain ha~ fallen almost constantly in this coun- ty in the last forty-eight hours. A driving rain from the northwest made its appearance here this afternoon about 4 o'clock. Full crops of all kind are assured by these rains. Some hail accompanied the rain, but not enough to do much if any damage~ The rairm have done some damage to the Crelm in the way of drifting soil over corn that has been listed after it has eom up and leafed out. COLORADO SPRINGS' Q UART0-CENTENNIAL Colorado' Springs, June 15.--The Quarto-Centennial Jubilee Association of this city has arranged a remarkably attractive program for the celebration of the twenty-fifth anniversary of the' admission of Colorado into the Union, and now appeals to elty and county officer,s and all public.splrlted eltlzens throughout the state to aid in making the event worthy of the state and the occaslon. They desire that as nearly as possi- ble every city and town in the state shall be represented by some suitable foat or other appropriate feature as a part of the historical parade which will take place on Augttst 3rd, the third and last day of the celebration. The program will include historical pageants and parades illustrating pre- historic Colorado life. Indians and Pu- eblos; .the Spanish life, hunters and trappers, cow _l~s, prospectors--In fact, our past and present. It ls expect- ed that Vice President Roosevelt will be her~ to deliver an address on the growth of this region during the quar- ter century, and the Roosevelt Rough Rlders'~vill have their national en- campmen~ during the Jubilee. There will be many bands of music, pioneer gatherings, receptions and historical addre~es, Indian races and dances, a street fair and "midway," profession- al league base ball games daily, splen. did hist6rical fireworks, excursions to the top of Pike's Peak and to Cripple Creek, and a genuinely grand celebra. tion.
