SAYS WAR WILL CLOSE
Senator Carter ThinRs War Will Be
Ended In the Philippines By
Believes the Next Question
Coroe Up Will Be Future Dis
position of Islands.
Washington', Sept. 4 Senator
Carter of Montana, in an interview
with a l'ost reporter today, said that
in his opinion the war in the Philip
pines would be ended by January 1.
Then ho said would come the question
of the future disposition of the islands.
The republican party he believed
would settle this question by insisting'
that the retention of the Fhilipnines
was a matter of business profit.
"This," added the senator, "is a
practical age. We are going to deal
with this question on the basis cf dol
lars and tents. If the American peo
ple believe that the l'hilippires are
going to help us they will never let
the i.-i.amis m. If, on the ottier hand,
th.-y lind that the Philippines are a
constant drain and a small return you
will find the verdict of the people to
lie .-igunst permanent retention.
Neither religion nor sentiment will
have much infiuenro in determining
the verdict. The great question will
be, wi l it pay? If wo can show the
country that it will I think the Amer
ican tlag will never come down from
"What sort ot government should
"Three suggestions will undoubt
edly be made. The first will bo to
:;bindouthe i-luads entirely to the
naive. 1 do not blievo this will
meet thu approval of the Amricm
" The s.eond will be to seize the isl
ands in a 11 r in grasp, assuring the peo
ple that we mean to give them a bet
ter government tnan they could enjoy
under any other 11 ig or could create
for tli-'msives, but tint wo are the
masters and p-opose to remain so.
"Tin-n the third proposition will be
to throw a loose string around the
people, holding their seaports and
custom houses with our navy, but al
lowing them absolute freedom in their
internal affairs. This freedom in my
judgment would soon become anarchy
and we would have to rule anyway, so
I should say that the second proposi
tion is the one that ought to be
alopted. The tinner we are in our
;-d niui-tration the more respect will
th'i-i "Kdiiir. haye fT us.
"As to the form of government,"
e -titinued Senator Carter,."! should
!-:iy th it a governor ought to be ap
pointed by the president with a coun
cil !-o selected by him. Thore might
ie a Filip:iio legislature composed of
prominent, men f:-om each of the isl
ands to d.-cuss questions and advise
the governor. I do not approve of a
ruiimii-i'in. I think the authority
ouehito be vested in a responsible
head, not spread through several com-mir.-

Uknnks, Sept. 4. As the end of the

is beginning to exhibit a fear that the

The local anti-Dreyfusard organs by
their anti-foreign articles have al
ready singled out foreigners as ene
mies of the country and there is little
douht that foreign journalists will be
the first victims of a mob, not so much
Arglo-S ixons as the Austro-German
and Russian Jews, who form a major

their respective countries.
Silver Will Ke Relegated.
Di; Moixks, la., Sept. 4. Chair
man Huffman of the democratic state
committee announces that the open

committee will be September 14, with
a big meeting at Davenport, ad
dressed by Fred E. White, nominee
for governor. Mr. White will make
anti-iruperialiam the chief issue, and
will relegate silver to the rear.
MEIKLEJOHN WILL COME HOME.
Assistant Secretary of War Will Attend
Reception to the First Nebraska.
Washington. Sept. 4. Assistant
Secretary Meiklejohn leaves tomor
row for Nebraska, going direct to his
home in Fuilerton, where he Is due to
arrive Thursday to be present at the
reception tendered Company B of the
First Nebraska. He will remain in
Fuilerton until September 14, when
he will go to Lincoln and participate
with the Grand Army of the Republic
and citizens of the state in the recep
tion to be tendered the First Nebraska
and other regiments, on which occa
sion he will deliver an address.
It is stated that President McKin-
Iey has given up his western trip in
view of the illness of Mrs. McKlnley.
Should this prcvo true it is thought
that Assistant Secretary Meiklejohn
will represent the president at the
Grand Army of the Republic reunion
at Lincoln next week.
Senator Thurston arrived in the
city this evening, having been greatly
delayed by special trains carrying
members of the Grand Army of tV.e
Republic to Philadelphia. The sena
tor stated that he has urged the presi
dent to go west, both by letter and
telegram, but had no definite under
standing of his decision. Senator
Thurston is on his way to the national
encampment of the Sons of Veterans
at Detroit and expect to be in Ne
braska next week.

CHRISTMAS WORK NOW.
F.ven the Suggestion of It Slakes Cf
It is during the hot summer days
that time hangs heavily upon the In
dustrious woman's hands, aieo the in
clination for serious work is lacking.
Then, If aha la wise, will begin the
Christmas preparation, a list of those
she wishes to remember h&rlaz been
previously made. By a careful study
of this list scores of pretty thiugs
may suggest themselves, trifles that
may cost but little more than care
and time, but whose value is Increased
on that account. The majority of wom
en, are like myself 'n preferring a
simple little gift made by the careful
fingers of some friend. The white lin
en work is especially fascinating with
its pretty hemstitching and artistic de
signs. Tray cloths, tea cloths, sachets,
toilet sets, table mats, sofa pillows and
bed sets are but a few of the articles
which may be suggested for summer
work. The woman who lovea her home
Jn the city or country will find end
less ways of beautifying It, and needle
work will be the main feature of It.
The woman whose family cares keep
her in the city home during the sum
mer months can make herself and fam
ily very comfortable If she so desires.
She can take up the carpets and leave
bare floors, which can be wiped up
almost every day with water nearly
cold in temperature. She can take
down the heavy portieres and replace
them with printed shades. Awnings,
screens, linen-covered cottons or bur
lap In some of the pretty soft couches
and hammocks. If you can possibly
hang them, will add to your comfort
and make you glad that you cm sit
about In cool, loose gowns and avoid
the many inconveniences of summer
hotel life. Right out in Germantown
is a little family which has made the
discovery that home is the most beau
tiful spot on earth In summer. The
suite has been treated much as I sug
gested, and upon the roof Is the dear
est little corner, with hammock and
lounging chairs. The evenings spent
there are ideal, and the mistress of the
place gives a sigh of satisfaction every
time she thinks of previous summers
spent at a Bar Harbor hotel.
Men Make It a Ifuslness in Kent County.
Sparrow hunting has become so prof
itable in Kent county that men have
now gone into the business that here
tofore was conducted only by boys,
says the Grand Rapids Democrat. One
of the most persistent hunters is Chas.
H. Sarow, ot Walker township, who on
May 13 drew in bounty from the coun
ty $3.50. and on May 1. $is.50. An
other sparrow exterminator is Fred E.
McBride, who, on May 13, drew $3.50 in
bounties, and more recently $14. But
the gamiest sparrow htinter of all Is
Ernest Cutler of this city, who follows
the trail the year around. Last year
the county paid $275 to Cutler in spar
row bounty. Just so soon as the sun
goes down Cutler appears, just before
5 o'clock at the cashier's window In
the clerk's office with his order from
the county clerk. During the legisla
tive session of ISSr. the state authorized
a bounty of 2 cents per head uton all
"blrds known as the a"non English
Qrr .. . . . s ' ,
sparrow, which are considered a det
riment to the count ry. A few years
ago several western states p'aced a
bounty on hawks and wolves. Imme
diately the mountaineers began raising
hawks and wolves. It was a thrifty
business, as the bounty paid was $1
per head for hawks and $S per head
for wolves. In this state at present
there 13 a bounty of $3 per head on
wolves, but the woods are so devoid of
the shy animal that no one cares to
hunt for the bounty.

SELDOM MARRY AGAIN.
Widow of Chicago Policemen Bemala
Single and Draw Pension.
Chicago Times-Herald: Only one
per cent of the widows of the Chicago
policemen who are left with a pen
sion ever marry again. Of 200 wom
en who have received pensions
during the past 22 years only two took
a second trip on the matrimonial sea.
aod both of them married policemen.
At present there are 150 women on the
pension list whose husbands either
died or were killed In the service. This
list wi soon be Increased on account
of an aci passed by the last legislature,
which provides a pension for a police
man's widow, no matter whether he
was In active service or not, so long as
she remains unmarried. Heretofore
the law ha3 been that if a retired po
liceman, drawing a pension, should
die. his pension died with him. All his
widow received from the police depart
ment wa3 $2,000 life insurance from
the Benevolent association. But the
pension law recently enacted makes
her eligible for her husband's pension,
the smallest sum being $300' a year.
The amount of a widow's pension de- j
pends upon the rank her husband held
in the department. A patrolman's
widow receives $300 a rear, one half
his salary; a sergeant's widow
$C00 a year, a lieutenant's widow $750
a year, and so on. Mrs. Welter, widow ;
of Colonel Welter, who a few years '
ago was drillmaster of the department,
with the rank of Inspector, draws the
largest pension of any woman on the j
list. She receives $1,500 a year. This
Is perhaps the largest pension received
by any woman in Illinois. Next to
Mrs. Welter comes the widow of In
spector Michael J. Schaack. whose an
nual pension is $1,400. The oldest pen
sioner on the list is Mrs. Nellie T.
Mackey, who has been a widow for
nearly 20 years. Policemen's widows,
it is said, have many opportunities to
marry again, because in most cases
they are left in fairly good circum
stances and are sought by bachelors
or widowers who have an eye to money
matters when tasting about for a mate.
But from the examination of the pen
sion records one is forced to fc.Mieve
that a policeman's widow thinfcij $300
a year better than a husband.

NAVAL VESSELS ON LAKE.

There Is an eight-y,.:. : tivaty be
tween the United Si...... ;el Great
Britain limiting the ;.. rce to be
maintained by those powers on the
great lakes, and providii. that "no
other vessels of war sha!l he there built
or armed." When this agreement was
made a naval vessel Unit in the upper
lakes could be built only for service
there, for there was no way in which
It could reach the ocean. Therefore
it was quite proper to renounce the
right to construct such ve-sels on the
lakes. Conditions are chancing, how
ever. It will not Le long before the
artificial waterways connecting Lakes
Michigan, Erie and ( n .ario with the
ocean will be so deepened and widened
that torpedo boats, large-sized torpedo
boat destroyers, and some other naval
vessels will be able to pas througn
these canals. Then, if it were not for
the treaty, the sh.'phu 1 iers on th
lakes at Chicago, for ns-ame would
be able to compete far Lo.e.ii'.neet con
tracts with e ern builieis. as frteel
and iron v .- is c; i b constructed
more cheaply here tl an anywhere else
in the country. The shipbuilders on
the lakes are desirous of securing a
modification of the treaty so that they
may be able to compete. They do not
wish to have the number of armed ves
sels on the lakes increased. Xoho ly
desires that All they a?k is a remov
al of the Inhibition on the con.-tru.'tion
of naval vessels which are sma'l
enough to get through the cabals to
the ocean. Any chans in the trcat
must affect both parties to it. Ii
American shipbuilders on the lahes are
permitted to build certain kinds of war
vessels, tLen the Canad an shipl u:ldei

If the two governments were distrust

other was scheming to have a nuiii;e;
of naval vessels on the lakes lead?

lations Letweenjtbe two govern :ntn
are so cordial at present that ne'.t'ie-
would suspect the other of bad faith i'
the mere construction of naal ve.-s.d
on the lakes were permitted. The pro
visions limiting the naval force to 1"
maintained on the lakes should not b
changed under any circumstances, r.o
even to oblige the shipbuilder?. Th
United States government has taken no
action In the matter as yet, and it ma'
be some time before it does. Ther'

Reunite an Insult and Leaves a Hotel
Where a Hill Is rreaented
New York World: For a year
"Count" Eugene Stanislas Kostra de
Mitkiewicx lived at the Brevoort
house. Not only did he t and lodge
as the guest of Charles Jalnes, the
proprietor, but he Is Eal.l to have bor
rowed money where and when ne
could, until the guests warned Mr.
Jaines against him. "You don't know
the man," Mr. Jalnes said In reply.
The "Count" had one of the best rooms
In the house. He gave card parties
not euchre nor whist and hM bar hill
was a wonder. Even the bootblack, the
barber and the newsboy were, his cred
itors for considerable amounts. When
the bill reached $3.0"0 Mr. Jaines
pressed for a settlement. The "Count"
refused to stay at a hotel where the
proprietor was so inconsiderate. He
moved out, leaving behind a trunk full
of frayed shirts and winter clothing.
He went to one of the bis summer re
sorts, where he Is said to be living on
the fat of the land. Mr. Jaines 6aid
yesterday he still had hones of getting
his money. "Count" Mitkiewicz was
horn in Russia. His brother is an of
ficial there and his sister is the wife of
a London capitalist. MitKiewicz is
said to have suffered on conviction of
defrauding hotel keepers in lxndon.
Years go he was a guest at the Fifth 1
Avenue hotel, this city. One day, as
the story goes, he borrowed a diamond
ring from Miss Julia Lomoline. it is
ch&rged that when it was returned the,
stone was found to he paste. Then he
married Caroline Lester of Rochester,
who died in 1S80. as it was said, of a
broken heart. The "Count's" biggest
scheme was a Chinese hanking conces
sion. In Pekln he got the right to es
tablish a bank for China modeled after
the Bank of England. He talked too
much one night in Shanghai, and the
concession was canceled. In the mean
time he had convinced Wharton Bark
er and other millionaires that there
were millions in the schme. and he
was the social lion of the season in
Philadelphia, New York and Newport.

Everyday I.'.fe of the Roman 1'opnlHce.
Here in the Forum were the soldiers
lounging in groups or advancing -with
measured tread among the unorderea
throngs, pushing all authoritatively
aside and preserving order. Here, too,
gathered all those people without any
occupation, who appeared every week
at the Ftorel.ouses onthe Tiber for
grain, ho fought for lottery tickets
to the circus, who spent their nights in
rickety houses beyond the river, their
sunny, warm days under covered por
ticoes, and in foul eating houses ot
the Suburra, on the Milvican bridge, or
before the "insulae" of the great.
where from time to time remnants
from the tables of slaves were thrown
out to hem. Last of all, portions of
these always took advantage of that
custom of the Roman nobles, who de
Eired to shine as patrons of the public,
to make themselves hangers-on. It
mint be remembered that In those days
a patron's nobility ,aj measured by
the number of clients who mustered in
the morning and saluted him at his
first appearance on the balcony of his
house. Thereafter they lounged for
the remainder of the day in the tem
ples and porticoes of the Forum. They
whiled away the lagging hours which
separated them from the hoped for In
vitation to dine with their patron by
scratching rude verses and coarse Jests
on the walls or pillars against which
they leaned, or by tracing on the pave
