It is the custom tn most ~untrie~ in Europe to hold the hat In the hand while talking tea friend.

Roy. H. B. Musselman. Presiding elder of the Mennonite Brethren in Christ, Reading, Pa., made the an- nouncement that he ha~' not voted for ~ven years, and expe~ts never to cast ,a I~llot. "I cannot," he said, "vote to support a republic, for the man who ~otes with a government ought to fight for it, and I do not want to fight for thtm country.

The reappearance on the English stage of George Coppin at the age of $8 recalls that of Charles Maeklin at Coy- ent Garden In 1789. when in his 100th year. He represented his favorite char- zcter of Shylock and even at that great age he was physically capable of per- forming the part with grea~ wgor, but the second act his memory failed 1din and he came forward with an apol- OfT to the audience.

Why Is Theodore Roosevelt common- spoken of as the twenty-sixth Pres- ident of the United States when he is mly the twenty-fiftll man to hold that oWce? Obviously- becauss some one thoughtlessly spoke of President Cleve- land, whose two terms of office were disconnected, as the "twenty-second -and twenty-fourth President" of the United States. But in a li~t" of men, 'not of terms of office, should Mr. Clove- land be assigned two numbers? It is more ltgiqal to call him the twenty- ,,~eeond President of the United States, ~sllnce he was the same man in both ~ ~a*ms, and accordingly to call Mr. .'l~.~sevelt the twenty-fifth President. :H~ is filling out the twenty-ninth Presidential term.

Mr. Hanna told of the arrival of the flying squadron at Key West and read a number of preliminary orders to Commodore Schley. Speaking of the run of the flying squadron from Key West to Clenfuegos. Mr. Hanna claim- ed that the trip was made as expedi- tiously as possible. Mr. Hanna then read the order of Admiral Sampson to Commodore Schley, dated May 19th, ]898. dlrecting the later to take steps to prevent the enemy from continuing work on the new fortifications at Cienfuegos. "It does not appear," continued Mr. Han- na, "that any steps were taken to pre- vent work on these new fortifica-] fleas.'. [ Mr. Hanna then took up the third specification of the 1Fecept, concern-[ ~r~g tbe cruise from Clenfuegos to San- ] mony to the effect that he had not told the commodore that the Spanish fleet was not In Santiago, and also gave Ad- miral Schley's version of the interview, claiming that Sigsbee did say that the Spaniards were not here. Captain Slgsbee was an officer of export'enos and knew very well that the fact that he bad not seen the fleet was not evi- dence that the fleet was not there If Captain Sigsbee had said positively the fleet was not on ft~e inside Com- modore Schley should have refused to accept it as utterly illogical. q'mntinuing, Mr. Hanna said: "l should think.that if Commodore Sehley had received information that set his mind at rest sufficiently to warrant his turning his squadron back toward Key West. convinced him conclusively that the Spanish fleet was not there, i~e would surely have stated that in his next telegram to the department." At this point Mr. Hanna took up specification four. referring to the ret- rograde movement. He said that in making this move Commodore Schley had n~t only taken away from Santi- ago the fighting ships of the flying squadron, but also the scout vessels located there by the government to watch the mouth of the harbor. "During this time." he said. "the gates of the harbor were left entirely unguarded, and it was not our fault that Cervera's fleet did not get away without being destroyed." DENVER UNIVERSITY NEEDS MORE MONEY Denver, Nov. 5.--Chancellor Henry k. Buchtel is now engaged in a search for some Interested friend of the Uni- versity of Denver who will donate $10,- 000 to save University hall. the main building of the institution, from being sold November 25th to satisfy overdue interest to the amount of $6,000 on a principal of $50.000. "This is a critical period in the his- tory of the university," said Chancellor Buchtel last evening. "If we fail to raise this money the building will be sold, which would be a severe blow to Denver as well as to our institution We must have the money a~ once, and it is evident that if we can turn this corner we will soon be out of our per- ils forever. The facts of our embarrassment are these: The Mack estate of Boston holds a mortgage of $50.000 on Uni- versity hall. on which there is inter- eat of $6,000 overdue for two yearn. The university has paid a trifle over $5,000 overdue interest in eighteen montlm, but the trustees of the Mack estate now'demand that all the over- due interest be paid at once as well as $10,000 principal, which makes it neces- sary to at once secure $16,000 by No- vember 25th. "Of this amount we have conditional promises which cover the $6,000 Inter- est, but we still need $10200. The uni- versity makes no resistance to the claim, and it is making every effort to obtain the money this week. "Last year the university debt was reduced $25,000, bringing it down to $150,000. During the same period the student bcdy increased In number from 630 to 878, and this year w.e have 1,000 students in all the schools of the instl. tution, and 114 professors. The total property of the university is worth more than $750,000, including twelve buildings costing $330,000. In addi- tion the university has lots at Univer- sity Park worth more than $200,000. These are for sale at from $250 tO $400 a pair.

Milburn pressed an elec- tric button, and the lights in the fa- mous electric tower grew dim for the last time. Slowly one by one the lights on post and pinnacle and tower faded. k corps of buglers standing in the tow- er sounded "taps," one of the greatest glories of the exposition, the electrical illumination, passed away, and the ex- position was ended. The exposition has not been a finan- cial success, but it is believed the ben- efits derived from it will be of great value to the commercial intersts of the country. The primary object of the ex- position was to advance the friendl relations and commercial intercourse between the United States and the oth- er countries of the two Americas. In this respect It has been a decided suc- eel. The financial loss will be in the neigh- borhood of $3,000,000. The statement to be issued by the officers of the expo- sttion setting forth the expenditures and receipts wUl be made public some time this month. Until then the com- pany will make no formal statement. zue loss will fall upon the holders of the common stock, the holders of sec- ond mortgage bonds and the contract- ors who erected the buildings. Two hundred and ten thousand shares of common stock were sold at $10 a share The stock was subscribed for by the citizens of Buffalo and the Niagara frontier in small lots of from one share to 100, so that ~the loss will not be seri- ot~y felt by any one. No complaint has been heard from the holders of common stock, who ap- preciate the benefit the exposition has ,been to the city. There is also a feel- !lug of satisfaction that the enterprise was carried to a successful end with- out state or federal aid. The first mortgage bonds, amounting to $2,500,000, will be paid in full. An issue of $500,000 second mortgage bonds is unprovided for, but the reve- nue from salvage on the buildings and from other sources will probably cover a part of this indebtedness. The re- mainder due to contractor's is not defi- nitely known, but it is said that it rep. resents their profits for the work done, and no one will be seriously embarrass- ed by the lass. The total number of admissions for the six month.~ was close to 8,000,000. An average of 2,,000200 a month had been figured on by the expo~ltion offi- cials. The great snowstorm of last April was a severe blow to the exposi- tion. An immense amount of work was undone, and work on the grounds and buildings was delayed for a week. Strennous efforts were made to make up the lost time, b~t May 1st a Vast amount of work remained undone, and the formal opening of the exposition was postponed until May 20th. The lamentable tragedy in the Tem- ple of Music was another blow to the Pan-American. The attendance had been increasing steadily up to the date of the assassination of President Mc- Kinley. The gates were closed for two days, and when they reopened there was a drop of twelve per cent. in the attendance, and no improvement fol- lowed. The government exhibit, which is beautiful and instrtlctive collection, will be at once shipped to Charleston. There was a good deal of.petty thiev- ing on the last night and a lively riot on the Midway.
