I 8AG U'A CRIgSGF T. In four-fifths of the hotels and rea- teive no pay, and are expected to live taurants of Germany the waiters re- on their tips. The railroads of Holland are so care- fully managed that the accidental deaths on them average only one year for the entire country. The Ruskin commonwealth of social- lsts at Waycross, Ga., has failed, ac- cording to a dispatch to the New York Sun. Only three families remain, the others having departed for the North and West. Their printing outfit is ad- vertised for sale and the land will go the same way. This will wipe out the last vestige of the colony, which went from Tennessee two years ago. The compliments of the Companion to fifteen millions of boys and girls who again take their seats in the schoolrooms and pick up their books! A most respectful bow to the four hun- dred thousand teachers whose summer vacation should send them back to their sacred task with freshened energy and joyous enthusiasm! And three times three for the public schools of America! A lively scrap between a clergyman and a layman was witnessed at a bap- tizing ceremony in Stanchfleld Lake, Minn. George Tomlinson had agreed to be baptized there by the Rev. Mr. Orrock, but his nerve deserted him at the last moment. The clergyman at- tempted to use force, and there was a struggle, the convert angrily resisting. After a prolonged contest, the minister succeeded in ducking the unwilling convert in three feet of muddy water. The death is announced at Genoa, at the age of 98, of Pierre Maurier, a Frenchman, who lived on the Island of Elba when Napoleon took up his com- pulsory residence there in April, 1814. Pierre remembered hearing the news towards the end of February, 1815, that tbe Emperor, with over 1,000 followers, had sailed away in feluccas bound for Provence. The lad used to carry~eggs and fruit to the kitchen of the Em- peror and one day that famous poten- tate caught him stoning a dog and sharply reproved him. Maurier was presented to Victor Emmanuel in 1863 and the King was much interested when he heard from Pierre's own lips his memories of the great Napoleon. Figures may not lle, but they are often disappointing. Census figures, especially, are apt to fall below what is expected of them. T~he recent cen- sus of Canada shows a population of 5,338,833, which is an increase of 505,- 594 over the total of 1891. The gain of about ten per cent in ten years seems to many Canadians a meager result of a decade of prosperity, and of energetic efforts to promote immigration. But it is the rule nowadays ~aat city popu- lations grow faster than rural, and Canada has few cities. Only eighteen places in the Dominion have more than ten thousand inhabitants. But there remains the consolation that not all the elements of national greatness are measured by a count of heads. Several articles of Jewelry embedded in the flesh were discovered in the making of an autopsy on the body of Paul Shlrvell, a Russian, who was killed in a mine in Pennsylvania. In the leg was a miniature dumbbell, about the size, of a cuff button. In each instance the jewelry had been fastened in the man's flesh, which had grown over the article, completely hid- ing it from view. On the body of Frank Lorenz, wbo committed suicide at White Haven recently, was found similar ornaments embedded in the flesh. It is b~lieved Lorenz and Shir- yell were political exiles from Siberia, and that the fastening of jewelry in their bodies was a part of the punish- ment inflicted by prison authorities. Commodore Perry is a name high in honor in the United States navy, hav- ing been the title of two famous broth- era--Oliver Habard and Matthew Cal- braith Perry. On September 10th, elghty-elght years ago, the elder broth- er, a young lieutenant who had never Been a naval fight, fought that fierce Battle of Lake Erie, which ~aved the ~orthwest to the United States and gave the world the dispatch: "We have met the enemy and they are ours." Forty-eight years ago last July the younger brother landed in Japan with a message from the president which practically opened that country to the world. The Matthew Perry monument recently unveiled at Kurihama, Japan, is a shaft thirty-three feet high made of a rare native stove and bearing an inscription in gold written by Marquis Ito. A dense crowd of natives wlt- negsed the ceremonies, both ;lapanese and American battleships fired salutes from the harbor, and one of the speak- ers was Rear Admiral Beardslee, who, as a midshipman under Perry, was present at the original entry. Henry J. Furber, Jr., professol ~,f political economy at the Northwestern University, Evanston, Ill., has been decorated with the Cross of the Leglon of Honor, in recognition of his interest In the educational affairs of France. About five years ago Prof. Furber sug- gested to the French Minister of Public Instruction certain changes in the rules governing foreign students at- tending the French universities. The suggestions were adopted, and the change was followed by a marked in- crease in the number of American studentm in French colle~L SUGAR TRUST WILL WAGE WAR ON BEET SUGAR ASSOCIATION :~-~a Francisco, Oct. 6.--Commenting ~pon the reduction of the price of su- gar in the Missouri market by the sa- gar trust, Henry T. Oxnard, president of the American Beet Sugar Associa- tion, defined it as another move to m'ush out beet sugar production l~ ~r- der that the trust might have no @p- position. "If they can succeed in the Missouri rivex valley," said he, "they will then turn their attention to the beet factor- ies ~n Michigan and other sections, and by the power of concentrated cap- ital crush oat successively nnd Indi- vidually the beet sugar producers. The trust tries to deceive the public by claiming that the beet producers can still make money at the low price it is lxying to estal)lish. This is false, and if it had been true, then the trust would have tried to establish a still lower price. They are not sacrificing 1~ cents per pound in the Mlssouri river markets to make a price that will still be pl~ofitable to the beet sugar. meu. "But this particular move on the part of the sugar trust will fall flaL The beet sugar factories will not sell their sugar in the Misouri river valley at 1~/~ cents under the market when a fraction of that 1~ cents will move their sugar to every other market in the United States. What the next move of the trust will be remains to be seen. "The trust also attempts to justify its action by insinuating that the beet factories have gone out of their right- ful sphere in making refined sugar in- stead ~)f raw sugar to be refined by ,the trust. Independent beet sugar pro- dueers have always made and sold re- fined beet sugar. It would be putting one's head l~ the lion's Jaw with a vengeance for the beet factories to .equip themselves only for the of raw sugars at prices to be fixed by the trust. Besides it is an economical .bhmder to perform in two operations wha~ can :be done as well in one. "The movements on the part af the sugar trust In selling its refined sugar far below the cost to tt of the raw material, ~nd In the special market which is now reached to some extent by the beet sugar producers, cannot but call down on the head of the trust the condemnation not only of the beet sugar producers, but also of all fair- minded people in the country, and hav- ing done this they have placed them- selves In an exceedingly poor position to go before Congress and ask for the perpetuation of their power as refin- ers; although they have recently ar- ranged to increase their capital stock to the extent of $15,000,(R)O to rivet their control of the raw cane product. "In view of this act on the part of the sugar trust, the United States Congress can ill afford to inaugurate the policy of reducing the present rate of duty by reciprocity or in any other way which would have the certain ef- fect of enriching the trust on one hand and on the other the killing of the most promising industry in the ag- ricultural business of America." NEW ISTHMIAN TREATY READY ABROGATING CLAYTON-BULWER Chicago, Oct. 6.--The Record-Herald this morning prints the following from Walter Wellman, its Washington cor- respondent: "The United States and Great Brit- ain have reached an agreement con- eernIng the Isthmian canal question, and the new treaty will be presented to the Senate for its ratification early in the coming session." Mr. Vtellman says: "I am now able ~o give the substance of this t}'eaty. It provides: "First--For abrogation of the old Clayton-Bulwer treaty in tote. "Second--For a neutral Isthmian ca- naI,'in case one be constructed by the United States, open in time of peace to the ships of all nations upon equal terms. "Third--This neutrality is guaran- teed by the United States alone and other maritime powers are not invited to participate in such guarantee. Great Britain is inferentially one of the guarantors, because she is a party to this treaty. "Fourth--In case of ~var, the United States reserves the right to ~ake such steps for its own protection as it may deem proper. "It will be seen that the new treaty meets the principal objectic.ns which were offered to the old Hay-Paunce~ fete convention and which led to its rejection by the Senate. While the principle of neutrality is asserted, the United States alone guarantees that neutrality, and no European powers are invited to give their assent t~ it. "It was this feature, more than any other, which led to the defeat of the former treaty. Many senators were willing to join with Great Britain in terway, because England already en- joyed certain treaty rights upon the Iuhmus. But they were decidedly un- willing to invite other European na- tions to give their assent. Those na- tions had no standing in the case and it was deemed unwise to invite them to participate in a purely American affair with which they had no direct concern. "By the terms of the new" treaty the United States may, in time of war, deal with the canal as it deems best for its own interests. It may close the canal to the ships of its enemies, and could, if it were thought advisable (which no one believes it ever will be) fortify the channel or its termini. In the broad sense the Isthmian water way is to be 'all-American.' The Unit- ed States is to build it and have con- trol of it, unhampered by onerous re- strictions. "Ambassador Choate will bring to the United States a draft of the new treaty, and President Roosev21t wiU soon have it in his hands. The Presi- dent will be able to discuss it in his forthcoming message to Congress. "He warmly approves of it. It meets almost exactly the principles for which he contended a year ago. He never opposed neutrality, providing it did not bind the hands of the United States in time of war. He never in- sisted upon fortifications. He never advocated preferential tariffs. "There can be little or no doubt that the new treaty will be approved by the American press and p,~ple, and that it will be confirmed by the Sen- ate. During the first sixty days of the coming session all treaty obstacles to the passage of an Isthmian canal a guarantee of the proposed new wa- bill should be removed." +++-t-+~+*t-+++~+-I'+~4- ~ ::- ~ :,'-- ~ ~:: ~ 4- f-4 ~+++",'+-','+-I-+++++++ SERIES OF VIOLENT ATTEMPT TO DISBAR ASSAULTS IN PUEBLO Pueblo, Colo., Oct. 6.--(Denver News Special.)--Conclusive evidence is at hand that at least two of the assaults out of three assaults and a holdup committed on Pueblo women last night were the work of the same man and the officers are of the opinion that the whole series of crimes on girls and women is the work of a single man. A .44-caliber Colt's revolver taken from the home of'Mrs. James P. Hen- derson, who was assaulted at her resi- dence, 1102 Arroyo avenue, last even- ing, was found this morning at the home of Mr. Hamilton, No. 8 Block J. At 2:30 this morning the police were notified by the neighbors of the Hamil- ton family that a white man with a handkerchief tied round his face for mask had forced his way into the house, deliberately raising a window. After ransacking a bureau and secur- ing a diamond ring and some other property the ruffian Jumped ripen the bed of one of the daughters of the family and was choking her when her feeble outcries aroused the household frightening the man away. In mak- ing his escape, however, the villain left a heavy club and the revolver taken from the Henderson house. Within a very few minutes of this report came another to police head- quarters stating that a man answer- ing the description of the assailant of Mrs. Henderson, the burglar at the Hamilton house and the man who held up Mrs. Margaret Blair on North- ern avenue early in the evening, bad committed a criminal assault upon Mrs. J. M. Lackey. the wife of a steel wo~er living at 1326 Pine street. In addition to the finding of the Henderson revolver at the Hamilton house is the further evidence leading the police to believe that one man has been committing all the crimes which began four weeks ago, is that the de- vice of a telegram to get clutches on a woman was Used anly~Thursday night at the home of W. J. Mills, 505 Grand avenue, where an attempt was made to ussault Mr. Mills' fourteen-year-old daughter. This man carried under his arm a sugar sack such fls was nsed by the assailant of the little daughter of Clay Hohncs. In this case the child was carried from her bed in the house where her pqrcnts were sleeping, to the back porch, where the most brutal asssault of the series was committed. Municipal League. Colorado Springs, Colo., Oct. Z--The C~)lorado State League of Municipali- ties will hold its annual convention in this city November 14th. There will be about 100 delegates, representing thirty cities and towns. ATTORNEY GENERAL Denver, Oct. 6.--The Supreme Court has been asked to disbar Attorney General Charles C. Post. In the same petition the court is asked to cite for contempt of court the attorney gener- al, the thirteen county assessors who constitute the State Board of Assess- ors and their secretary. The petition. era are the attorneys for the corpora- tions interested in the two actions brought to test the constitutionality of the revenue law, Henry T. Rogers, Willard Teller, E. E. WLhitted, Charles W. Waterman, Charles E. Gnat, Henry A. Dubbs and D. C. Bellam. The disbarment and contempt pro- ceedlngs are asked on the ground that the attorney general, the State Board of Assessors and its clerk showed con- tempt of court by extending the ab- stracts of assessments of the corporate property and certifying ~daem out to the county clerks. The application was made to the Judges of the Supreme Court in cham- bers yesterday morning and will be passed upon by the court Monday morning at 10 o'clock. The persons the corporations want punished for contempt, besides Attor- ney General Post, are County Assess- ors S. H. Alexander, G. N. Lysight, J. A. Webber, A. J. Hogan, E. H. Stev- ens, Hugh Taylor, E. Q. Price, A. M. Thomas, F. W. Brush, C. P. Linck, W. F. Whinnery and L. F. Neff, who com- pose the State Board of Assessors, and their clerk, A. B. Gray. Accompanying the petition Is an affi- davit Sworn to'by James Correy, tax agent for the Denver & Rio Grande road: in which he avers that Secretary Gray of the State Board of Assessors told him that the assessors had ex- tended their abstract of assessment of corporate property and instructed Sec- retary Gray to certify them out, which he did, and that the action was taken under tim advice of the attorney gen- eral. Mexicans Favor Arbitration. Mexico City, Oct. 7.--The Pan-Amer- ican Congress is looked forward to with great interest. Mexican public sentiment strongly favors the adoption of a system of arbitration for the re- publics of North, Central and South America. It is believed President Roosevelt will lend his powerful sup- port to this idea. More Trouble In Ohin~. London, Oct. 7.--"Another Basel mis- sion has been destroyed in the Hsing Hing district," says a dispatch from Hong Kong to the Times. "The move- ment resembles the 'Boxer' rising." WASttINGTON GOSSIP. The Navy Departinent will soo~ ~ave :a portrait of John P. Kennedy of Ma~:yland, who was secretary of the navy under President Fillmore. The secretary of agriculture has ap- pointed Dr. F. I{. King, now professor of agricultural psyclmlogy in the Uni- versity of Wisconsin, to be chief of di- vision in the bureau of soils, Dcpart- ~nent of Agriculture. Acting Secretary Spaulding of the reasury has approved a plan for a yel- low fever institute within the marine hospital service, whose object will be to collect facts and make investiga- tions ~)f the subject of yellow fever. The Treasury Department has issued a regular warning that a new counter- feit $5 silver certificate is in circula- tion. It is of the series of 1899. check letter "B," plate number thirty-seven, ~nd bears the portrait of Indian chief "'One Papa." The counterfeit is printed from photo-etched plates of fair work- manship on good qu'Hity paper, bear- lug lines in imitation. The Interior Department ts rapidly completing plans for the opening of the Fort Hall, Idaho, Indian reservation, and it is expected that the reservation, which contains 400,000 acres, will be thrown open within a few weeks. The Quinault reservt~tion in Washington, comprising 3(}0,000 acres, will probably be thrown open next spring. Commis- sioner Hermanu of the general land office, said that it was probable the old "sooner" system would be adopted at the opening of both reservations. The Japanese government has been told courteously that the United States officials had no intention to dis- criminate, on account of race, in mak- ing the personal examinations in quarantine at San Francisco and Hon- olulu, which led to the liliilg of remon- str~mces by the f~'mer government. The quarantine rules are said to have been based on purely geographic and sanitary considerations and are not en- forced toward Japanese with greater rigor than toward other peoples. It is believed that the explanation will be satisfactory. Tim forthcoming annual report of fi~e postmaster general will show that for the fiscal year ending June 30th last, the gross receipts of the I)envcr post- office were $479,(}25, as comi)ared to $417,572 the year previous, while the gross receipts of all presidential post- offices in Colorado were $1,(XH),477, as compared to $890,137 in 1900. The net earnings of the Denver office dur- ing the past year amounted to $30i,509, as against $260,292 in 10@0, while all presidential offices in the state show a net revenue of $586,778, in 1901, com- pared to $522,683 in 1900. ,, At a recent Cabinet meeting the prin- cipal subject discussed was that of the cable to Hawaii, Guam and the Phil- ippines. Propositions have been made to lay a commercial cable from San Francisco to connect these islands, and the question under discussion was whether under our peace treaty with Spain the United States could author- ize or in any way encourage the laying of such a cable by private parties. Un- der a franchise obtained from Spain some time before the late war, the ex- clusive right to cable connections was secured by a foreign corporation. Un- der the treaty of Paris the United "States obligated itself to protect all property rights iu the archipelago, and the question now at issue is whether permission to land the proposed cable at Manila or some otller Philippine port would be a violation of the terms of the Paris treaty. The attorney general will prepare a statement for the Pres- ident covering all the questions in- volved. The comptroller of the currency has prepared a summary of returns relat- ing to the organiaztion of national banks under the provision of the na, tional currency law, as amended by the act of March 14, 1900, statistics being brought down to the close of September, 1901. During the eighteen and a half months ended September 30th there were organized 815 banks, with a capital of $36,512200, and with a deposit of bonds as securities for cir- culation of $10,556.750. In number of organizations the middle states lead, with 224, and capital of $12,055,000. The western states organized~ 151, with capital of $4,895,000; the Pacific states, including Hawaii, twenty-two, with a eapltal of $1,435,000. In point of num- her of organizations Texas leads with ninety banks. Since March 14, 1900, the number of banks in existence has increased from 3,617 to 4,254; the cap- ital stock from $616,308,095 to $661,- 851,695; bonds deposited from $244,- 611,570 to $330,721,930, and circulation secured by bonds and lawful money, from $254,402,730 to $358,830,548, or a net increase of $104,427,817. The secretary of war has made an allotment of $100,000 for the purpose of preparing the military post at Wash- ington barracks for the use and occu- pation of the army war college, the school of national defense and the en- gineer school of appllcatlon. The war college and school of national defense are entirely new institutions and will be organized under plans prepared un- der the special supervision of Secre- tary Root. The engineer's school is now at Willetts Point, New York, and will be formally installed at WaShing- ton barracks immediately. The bat- talion of engineers, consisting of three companies now stationed at Willetts Point, will begin the movement from their present station at once. Classes in the proposed war college and school of national defense will be colnposed of honor graduates of the existing infan- try, cavalry and artillery schools at Fort Leavenworth and Fort Monroe, respectively. The $100,0()0 allotment is to be devoted to the improvement of the grounds and the erection of a few necessary buildings. It is the intention of the secretary of war to make Wash- ington barracks a model military post, not only the finest of its kind in this country, but the finest in the world. Secretary of Agriculture Wilson, af- ter careful consideration of*the reports and estilfiates from leading beet sugar producers, estimates the beet sugar productiou for 1901 at 198,500 tons. The cane sugar production is estimat- ed as follows: Southern states, 300,000 to~s; Porto Rico, 100,000; Hawaii, 300,000; total, '700,000 tons. The sugar production in tons of western states follows: California, 80,000; Colorado, 20200; Utah, 15,000; Washington, 2,. 000; Oregon, %000. CHINESE AFFAIRS IN A BAD WAY AND FOREIGN GUARDS LOOTING Pekin, Oct. S.--The officials here have not been informed as to whether the court has started for Kai Feng Fu as announced in a dispatch from Shanghai yesterday. Previous ad- vices lead to the belief that the court did start. The temporary palaces at Kai Feng Fu and I)ao Ting Fu are be- ing prepared like permanent dwellings, although they will be occupied only for a few days. The requisitions for the traveling ex- penses already amount to $9,500,000, in spite of the edict enjoining economy in this respect. The scale of prepara- tions may be judged from a single item--S22,500 will be expended on ta- bleware. Several local officials along the route have resigned because they are unable to meet the expenses of entertaining the court. The latteffs Journey now is particularly unfor- tnnflte, b(~cflllSe tile r(~gions trqversed have been impoverished by the sum- mer famine. The Chinese officials are eonsiderin~ the desirability of protest- ing to the foreign ministers against the con(hict of the legation guards. The soldiers continue (o treat the C lfinese like a conquered people. Groups of soldiers roam about the city, wearing their side arms, often intoxi- cated, maltreating the natives and committing petty robberies. A party of Americans recently loo~ed a silver- smith's store, securing several hun- dred taels' worth of propcrff. The whole garrison was contincd to bar- racks until the guilty men were d~ tccted. The governor of Pekin has I)rote~t- ed because the foreign storekcepe:s continue to occupy buildings which they seized in 1900 regardless of thdt owners' wisiL The ministers will evi:'t the storekeepers from these places. Correspondence has been exchanged between the Chinese officials and the ministers regarding the complaln.'s lnade by Chinamen that they have been compelled against their will lo take part in the work of building tt~e new leg'ltions. It is l)ccoming evident that some Modus vivendi must be established, cr the conditions will become intolerable. Notwithstanding the ministers' policy of moderation in erecting defences, ~he legation quarters present the ap- pear;race of a fortified city. The Brit- ish defenses, opposite the imperial city, are particularly formidable, the italian defenses, adjoining the British, have eulbrflsures for cannon, a deep moat protects the German section, and lcross the city wall the Germans have erected a stone fort for artillery. Prince Su, the collector of t,~xes, has adopted the policy of taxing goods brought into Pekin for foreign mer* chants. Heretofore such goods have not been t'lxed and the merchants have protested to the ministers, who hchl tint the goo(Ls should remain un- taxed, on the ground that they are in- tended for the use of the legations. SUDDEN DEATH OF THE AMEER MAY CAUSE COMPLICATIONS London, Oct. 7.--A news agency pub- lishes the following dispatch from Stmla, dated this evening: Habib Oullah Khan, eldest son of the Ameer of Afgh'lnistan, hq,~, report- ed to the British agent "it Cabul that the Ameer died last Thursday, aft,:r a brief illness. A dispatch to the Associated Press from Simla says the Ameer was taken seriously ill September 28th. Habib Oullah Khan, October 2nd, asked in a durbar that public prayers be offered for the Ameer. In the nlorning of Oc- tober 3rd Habib Khan announced that his father had expired at 3 o'clock that morning. Nothing is known of the state of affairs at Cabul. No confirmationhas been received at the foreign office of the report of the death of the Ameer, but its truth is not doubted. In viexv"bf the existing critical situation in South Africa, the news sent something like a shock through the United Kingdom. Great confidence, however, is exl)ressed on all sides of the ability of the Indian viceroy to deal with the situation. Before Lord Curzon attained his present dignitie~ he had traveled through Afghanistan as the guest of the Ameer, and had thoroughly mas- tered the problem of British policy in central Asia. At Simla it is believe~l that Habib Oullah Khan, who was regarded by his father as his successor, and had long had a share in the govermnent, will assume the succession peaceably. lie is at Cabul. For some years, un- der his father's controlling hand, he h'~s had charge of the army and the state treasury and the Supreme Court of Apix~al. IIe is regarded :is a wise and temperate ruler, favorable to Great Britain, but les~ masterful than his father, and for this reason less likely to be strong enough to govern the fierce, unruly tribes or to resist the attempts of his brothers to seize power. It is expected that Lord Curzon will postpone his intended tour of Burmah until after the Afghan question is set- tled down. The editorials in the morning papers express confidence that, with a strong viceroy and a strong government at home, any possible complications fol- lowing the de'~th of the Ameer will be firmly and prudently met. There is, however, an underlying current of un- easiness discernible as to whether Russia will seize the opportunity to push her frontier forward. The Brit- ish troops in India, owing to the South African war, are now below their normal strength. It will be im- possible to take any more for South Africa and the news will still further encourage the Boers to prolong their resistance. ......... ~@~ BOARD ()F ASSESSORS CITED FOR CONTEMPT Denver, Oct. 8.--Judges Gabbert and Steele of the Supren~f Court yesterday morning in re the revenue law tangle, "ordered the thirteen members of the State Board of Assessors, A.

EpiscopMian Liberality. San Francisco, Oct. 8.--Yesterday was a day of oratory in the house of deputies of the triennial Episcopal con- vention. The debate, which began last Saturday, ou the proposed addi- tion to article ten of the constitutioff, prescribing the form of worship, was continued all day, and finally resulted in Its adoption. As adopted it reads as follows: "But the provision may be made by canon for the temporary use of old forms and directories of worship by congregations not in union with this church who are willing to accept the spiritual oversight of the bishop of the diocese or missionary district." The Roy. Dr. Huntington of New York made the closing argmnent, tie declared it to be his purpose to bring in a canon embodying "ill the pro- visions of his original resolution, re- ferred to by Dr. Fulton, if the "reload- meat should be adopted. If this is adopted such a canou would be possi- ble. The four great (tuestions, he said, which confront the American people are, the sanctity of the home, the puri- fication of the municipal life of our great cities, the relatiou between cap- jtal and labor, and, towering up over all the others, because entering into all others, was the question whether we can thoroughly and uniformly consol- idate all the religious forces of the Republic, and he eloquently argued that the step which is now proposed to he taken by the Episcopal Church would be in the direction of such a consolidation. i noon the officials of the American board in charge of Congregational mis- sions met informally. The officials per- sonally contributed to the ransom, but as officials they took the position they have maintained all along, that ~t would be inadvisable for them, as a missionary board, to pay a ransom-- this for the reason that it would be put- ting a premium on brigandage that must in the end make missionary work in wild and rough countries more diffi- cult and possibly impracticable. After this meeting it was officially given out that the State Department at Washington has agreed to take full charge of the delivery of the ransom to the brigands. London, Oct. 8.--"It iS reported from Sofia," ~ays a dispatch from Vienna, "that United States Consul Dickinson and an envoy of the missionary society a~TiVed there Saturday, intending to follow up Miss Stone and to deposit a )ortion of the ransom. The brigands rhave extended the time for payment one nloIlth." A~pnhoe RepubUean Nominations.
