Cxevixamd, 0., Aug. 81. While
IVeaident McKinley very much desired
to pey more than a brief visit to hie old
heme in Canton, he finds that (be dutie
4 liia office are mch that he will be
e4ged to cut hia visit there to a mere
U. The president will spend a couple
( days in camp at Montauk Point and
tsaap Wikoff, so aa to correctly inform
himself aa to the condition! of affairs
aad ef the truth of the reports that bare
circulate!, from personal observa-
and contact with the men. The
presidential party will be at Colonel
Myros T. Merrick's residence in this
mtf until Thursday morning, when they
save for Canton.
Rig preparations have been made to
receive the presidentand Mrs. McKinley
there by their old friends and neighbors
sad the people of Canton in general. It
fU the intention to make the occasion
fivic jubilee. All this, however, will
now he reduced in measure from the
fact that President McKinley and party
wall only he in Canton for two or three
hoars and will then take the train for
Hew York. Undoubtedly the president
will be given a royal welcome during
hi short stopover in Canton.
On the eastern trip, which is part of
the program outlined, the presidential
party will hardly stop longer at New
York than will lie necessary to catch a
train for Camp Wikoff and Montauk
point. The president will probably he
in camp at (he two places mentioned on
Friday and Saturday, leaving Mrs. Mc
Kinley in New York City, whither he
will return to spend Sunday and then
go to Washington. The trip from Can
ton to New York will Vie made over the
Penntiylvania r 'ad, departing from Can
ton during the afternoon of Thursday.
President McKinley and Mrs. McKinley
-i4 the latter' maid and George B. Cor
telyou, assistant secretary to the presi
dent, ill accompany the chief execu
tive to New York.
"The president really had no very
definite iilans for upending his time on
this trip when he started out," said his
ecretary. "lie made his plans along
the way, and hua leen constantly re
eeiving telegrams and other matters in
connection with the war that needed his
attention. President McKinley and his
party had intended spending two or
three days with the president's brother
at Somerset, but the plans were changed.
It ia the intention of the president to
tret as much rest as possible while here.
He will prohab'y return to Washington
lor a sho t time after this trip anil in
tends taking a longer vacation a little
later thin fall.''
During the morning President and
Mrs. McKinley accompanied by Col ml
nd Mrs derrick, went for a drive
throiurb the parks.
This afternoon the president receiv d
Postmaster Gordon of Chicago, who
presented the invitainn of Chicago to at
tend the big peace jubilee in that city.
President McKinley deferred any defin
ite answer in view of poi-sihle demands
that may be made npon him as chief
executive. Later, the president and
Colonel Herrich took another drive,
th i time out into the country.
Justice White and BecreUry Day ar
rived at the White bonne about 6
o'clock in the evening, probably to con
sult with the president over the for
tner'a decision aa to acting as one of the
peace commissioner.
Mrs. McKinley was indisposed by a
light cold and remained within doors
during the day.
MaJ. Webb C. Hayes, who is said to
tie the only volunteer oflicer that served
in both the Cuban and Porto Ricsn
campaigns, and who is accompanying
Preaident McKinley in his present trip,
hat proposed a plan to the chief execu
tive looking toward the reorganization
of the national guard under military
liw. This plan provides that the presi
dent lhall appoint an adjutant for each
state; that an many bodies of militia
hall be lais -d in each state aa circum
stances require and that all officer of
mcb militia shall be nominated by the
governors of the various state
Major Hayes when asked what he
thought of the charge of starvation
from the regiment at the front said :
"Look at me. Do I look starved? I
have lived on the same rations a the
soldiers and have grown Hestiier on
that (are."
Hayes was attired in the brown can
vaa uniform of a field officer and looked
brown a hia suit and rugged aa a vet
eran. "I may be wrong, but in my opinion
the greatest cause fur complaint ia
aummtd up in 'cooks and homesick
Be." The government purchased
bountifully of all needed supplies. That
there waa some mismanagement ia
Impossible to deny. But official invest

and homesickness that crippled the

with the president over the selection of
Mr. Wbi elaw Re id as a member of the
peace commission. While Mr Quigg
would not discus hia visit it I likely
from bis relation with Senator Piatt
that be protested against the proposed
appointment. The president told Mr.
Quigg be had determined upon the ap
pointment. Senator Davis, who haa
been selected as peace commitsioner aUo

waa very brief. The senator left this af
ternoon for New York, and from there

Camp WiKor-r, Montauk Point, N. Y.,
Aug. 26. President of the United
States: 1 was very glad to hear that
you would visit Montauk Point very
soon, Tho visit of the secr.-tary of war
has accomplished more than I cau ex
press. He ban promptly corrected evils,
made valuable sage-tions, given direc
tions regarding administration. In ad
dition hia personal visit to 1,500 sick
soldiers in the hoemtals has cheered
them up and it is difficult to adequately
convey to you the change for the better
since the secretary's arrival. The an
nouncement that you will visit the sol

you have made your visit.

Br. PrTcaant'RO, Aug. 29. By order
of Emperor Nicholas Count Muravleff,
th foreign minister, on the 24th int
handed to the foreign dip'omata at St.
Petersburg a r.ote declaring that the
maintenance of peace and tlie reduction
of the excea-ive armaments now crush
ing all nations is the ideal for which all
government ought to strive. The czar
eonaider the present moment favorable
for the inauguration of a movement
looking to this end and in files the pow
ers to take part in an international con
ference aa a meana if thus insuring rest
and lasting peace and terminating the
progtes-ive increase of armament
London, Aug. 2fl. The czar's propo
sition for an international conference for
the purpose of securing real and lut
ing peace among the powers aud termi
nation of the progressive increase in
armaments, as conveyed in a note from
Count Muravleff, the Russian foreign
minister to the foreign diplomats at St.
Petersburg, is likely to produce a sensa
tion throughout Europe and coming
from such a quarter and with such evi
dent sinci rity of purpose, it is likely to
have important effects.
"International discussion is the most
effectual means of ensuing all people'
benefit a real durable peace, above all,
putting an end to the progressive devel
oj ement of the present armament.
In the cmiree of the last twenty years
the longing tor general appeacement ha
grown especially pronounced in thecon
solences of civil zed nations, and the
preiervation of peace has been put for
ward as an object of internat onal policy.
It is in its name that great states have
concluded themselves powerful aliances.
It is the belter to guarantee peace
that they have developed in proportion
hitherto unprecedented their military
forces and still continue to increase them
without shrinking from any tacnflce.
Nevertheless, all these effoits have
not yet been able to bring about the
benificent lefcull desired pacification.
The financial charges following the
upward march strike at the very root of
public prosperity. The intellectual and
physical stret gth of the nation' labor
and capital are mostly diverted from
tbeir natural application and ate un pro
ductively consumed. Hundreds of mil
lions are devoted to acquiring terrible
engines of deduction, v. hie I hough to
day regarded as the last work of science,
are destined tomorrow to l;se all their
va'ue in consequence of some freeh dis
covery in the same Held. National cul
ture, economic progress, and the produc
tion of wealth aie either paralyzed or
checked in development. Moreover, in
proportion as the armaments of each
power increases, they less and lets fulfill
the objects the governments have set
before themselves.
"The ecnomic crises, due in great
part to the system of armaments 'bout
ranee' aud the constant danger which
lie in this massing of war material are
transforming the armed peace of onr
days into a crushing burden which the
people have more and more difficult
in bearing.
" It appears evident that if this state
of things were to be prolonged it would
inevitable lead to the very cataclysm it
is desired to avert, and the horrors
whereof make every thinking being
thru nk in advance.
"To put an end to these incessantly
Increasing armament and to And a
mean of warding off the calamities
which ace tbreating the whole world,
lucb is the supreme duty today imposed
upon all b la tea.
" Filled with this idea, hi majesty
haa been pleased to command me to
propose to all the government whose
representative are accredited to the Im
perial court the assembling of a confer
ence which shall occupy Itself with this
grave problem.
"This conference will he, by the help
of God, the happy presage for the cen
tury which Is about to open. It would
converge into one powerful focus the el-
forts of all slate sincerely seeking to
make the great conception of univeraal
peace triumph over the elements of
trouble and d scord, and it would at the
same time cement their agreement bv a
corporate ceuaecration of the principles
of equity and right whereon rest th se

Paris, Sept. 1. Lieutenant-Colonel
Henry, who was arrested Tuesday eve
ning on the charge of having been the
author of an important letter, which
figured in the Dreyfus case, committed
suicide last evening.
His arrest was one of the most sensa
tional developement ia this extraordi
nary affair. He has been throughout
the champion of the army against Colo
nel Pickuart, with whom he fought a
duel. The new developement appear
to alter the aspect of both the Dreyfus
cases, and to practically nullify the evi
dence of Generals Pelieux and Bois de
Fevre, and the declarations of the minis
ter for war, M. Cavaignac, in the cham
ber of deputies.
In fact some people believe that the
real turning point in tbe Dreyfus case
has been reached, and that a revision of
the trial of the prisoner of Devils island
will be had.
Papers which have been supporting
tbe proposition to reopen the Dreyfus
case demand tbe immediate release of
Colonel Picquart, who is imprisoned on
charges connected indirectly with the
Dreyfus case, and they also insist upon
a review of the latter's trial.
When Count Estt-rhazy was informed
of the arrest of Henry, he exclaimed :
"This is too terrifying."
General Le Mouim de Bois de Fevre,
chief of the general staff of tbe French
army, tendered his resignation to the
government this evening. General de
Bois de Fevre explains that he resigns
owing to his misplaced confidence in
Colonel Henry, which led him to pre
sent as genuine what was forged evi
M. Cavaignac asked him to remain to
"see justice rendered in the matter,"
but he persisted in resiguing.
Nancy, France, Aug. 31. A court
martial here bas just sentenced a priv
ate soldier to three month's imprison
ment and five hundred francB' fine for
shouting "Vive Zola."
Colonel Henry was attached to the
war department when Dreyfus was con
victed. It appears that an injury instituted
hy Minister of War Cavaignac into the
Dreyfus case resulted in the recovery of
documents lately read in the chamber
deputies by M. Cavaignac, showing that
proof of the guilt of Dreyfus was forged.
Colonel Henry was summoned to the
ministry of 'war, and confessed to to
fabricating the letter.
It is allirmed that M. .Cavaignac,
while not having changed his belief on
the cupahility of Dreyfus, is determined
to punish all the guilty parties, no mat
ter what their rank or position.
Colonel Henry confessed to having
committed the forgery, "owing to the
absolute necessity for finding proofs
against Dreyfus. "
It is understood that the document in
question is the letter heretofure alleged
to have, been written by the German
military attache to the Italian military
attache in October, 1895.

Clkvmiand, O., Sept. 1. Julius W.
Beeman, a voung married msn and a
brother of Dr. E. F. Beeman the
wealthy chewing gum manufacturer,
bas been arrested. On Sunday Chief of
Pollco Corner received from the chief of
police of Buffalo several letters picked
up on the streets of Buffalo. All were
alike and written in a woman's hand.
Each was addressed to "Dear Kd" and
was signed "Pearl."
The letters were very tender, as
though the two were very dear to each
other, and expressed sorrow that Bhe
was not able to meet him in Buffalo and
was compelled to go to Wheeling, W.
Va. Iteing out of money while in
Clevelaud, "Pearl" wrote she bad lieen
compelled to pawn her solitaire dia
mond ring. She had asked for only
(16.50 on it, whereas she might easily
have obtained $76.
"Pearl" begged forgiveness and en
closed the pawn check and requested
"Dear Kd" to redeem the ring. The
pawnticket waa of the regulation kind
and had ostensibly been given by Julius
W. Beeman, pawnbroker, Beck man
block, Cleveland, O.
Tbe Cleveland p dice located Herman
in the Beckman block, and upon inquiry
learned that he represented himself to
be tbe agent of a medical company.
He was receiving a great many letters
from Buffalo. Beeman refused to honor
a pawn ticket presented by a detective,
declaring tbat be did not run a pawn
shop and some one must have played
a joke on him. However, he was
arrested, the police believing he waa
confining his operations to tbe mail. A
tnimlier ol " Deinr Kd " letters and pawn
checks made out for " Pearl's " ring
were fouud in his aste paper basket.
How many letter from Buffalo contain
ing the pawn checks and remittance ol

declined to slate if they knew. It ll

letters were dropped on the street ol
