Dutch delegation presiding. Prof. Louli
Renault of the French delegation ex
plained that certain modification had
been made in the report, meeting the
wishes expressed by his colleagues al
tbe last session.
Captain A. T. Marian, U. 8. N., de
clared bis readlnetis to support propos
als submitted, In a spirit of concilia
tion, though he considered they pre
sented a lacune In regard to the posi
lion of shipwrecked men picked up by
vessels, finding themselves accidentally
on the scene of an avengement. The
subcommittee, however, considered
that article Ix covered all eventualities.
Dr. Monoto Itachlro of the Japanese
delegation announced that he proposed
to submit a motion modifying article
vl of the Oeneva convention regarding
the disposition of sick and wounded
prisoners, on the llru-s of the subcom.
mlttee's report, which leaves such dis
position for the victors to decide.

YUKON OPEN AGAIN.
Breaking Up of the Ice Opens the
River to Navigation.
Seattle, Wash. Special.) The first
pew from Dawson and the interior of
Alaska to be received here since travel
over the trail closed about six weeks
ago has reached here. It covere the
period between the big fire, April 26,
and the opening of navigation. May 23.
A revised estimate of the losses caused
by the Are places the total amount at
$500,000, about one-half the amount pre
The Yuko nbroke away from Its Icy
fetters in front of Dawson May 7, or
nine days later than last year. The
steamer New Tork was carried ashore
by the Ice and nearly destroyed. The
wheel of the Willie Irving wu crushed.
The tee Jammed at the foot of Third
street and b locks of Ice were plied up
mountain high. For a time Dawson
was threatened with a flood. After a
short time the Ice broke with a crash
and the river was open for good. The
breaking of the Ice marked the grad
satlon of the Cheecharkos or tenderfeet,
Into the ranks of the Sourdoughs, or old
timers. The event waa celebrated with
the firing of guns and a general rejoic
ing. The Flora -waa the first steamer to
arrive from the outside. It was follow
ed In a few hours by the Bonanza King.
Reports had been received from all the
creeks and everything was satisfactory.
There was no evidence of a shortage of
water, which caused so much trouble
last year. On Bonanza and Eldorado
bundreds of men were at work sluicing
out gold. The benches are showing ut
well. Some enormoss dumps of gravel
were made during the winter. These
are now being worked out and are pan
Ding much better than waa expected.
Dominion and other creeks on Indian
river are also being cleaned up with
more than satisfactory results.
A great deal of summer work will be
done this year on Eldorado If the flow
ef water will permit.

RICHARD BLAND IS DEAD.
Noted Mleeourlan Join the Silent
Bt Iuts,Mo. (Special.) A special to
the Post-Dispatch from Lebanon, Mo.,
ays: Hon. Richard Parks Bland died
at his home near Lebanon at 4:30 a. m ,
peacefully and without apparent suffer
ing. Mr. Bland returned borne when con
gress adjourned in March and soon
suffered a relapse from an attack of
la grippe. For more than two" months
he had been confined to his home anj
bis health has gradually declined. He
thought he would not survive the at
tack from the first and showed hli
thorough knowledge of his condition
On the 8d of this month Mr. Bland sud
denly grew worse, and his sons, whe
were In school, were summoned home
and for the first time the public was
Informed of his critical condition.
Trom time to time since then the
patient showed signs of Improvement,
but the physician in charge would of
fer very little hope to his family and
friends. He continued to lose his vigor
nd grow weaker. On Sunday and
Monday he presented an Improved con
dition and his family took new hope,
and late Monday afternoon there were
many expressions that Bland was
petting better. About 10 o'clock Tues
day night, however, he fell asleep and
continued in that condition until deaita
relieved him today.
His family are prostrated with grief,
til the community is bereaved. The
runeral will take place at Labanon at 4
O'clock on Saturday afternoon. Mr
Uland's remains will be placed In the
pera house tomorrow, and will He in
itate for twenty-four hours. The
funeral will be conducted by the Ma
sonic order, and all the ministers of
Lebanon will be present to assist.
Private Secretary Bell has notified
the clerk of the house of Mr. Bland's
Jeath, requesting him to appoint a com
mittee of members to attend the
funeral. Prominent friends of Mr.
Bland throughout the country have
jeen notified of the funeral arrange
ments. A dispatch was received from Colonel
William J. Bryan, at Chicago, stating
.hat he would attend the funeral. Mrs.
Bland has recejved several dozen mes
tages of condolence from admirers cf
ler husband all over the country. The

las been very great and her frlenda
ire alarmed at its effect.
WANT MORE FIGHTING.
Three Regiments of Volunteers to
Washington, D. C (Special.) Pursu
ing a policy determined upon some
months ago, General Otis is organizing
three regiments In the Philippines, com
posed of officers and men of the state
volnteers who desire to remain in the
service. The army bill authorized this
kind of enlistment In the Philippines. If
the full complement cannot be made
up from these discharged volunteers In
the Philippines the regiments wj.ll be
organized and officered IA skeleton form
until recruits can be sent from the
United States to fill them. General Otis
and the volunteer officers In the Phil
ippines have been consulting to see huw
many men will enlist. The number has
not been very large, as there seems to
be a desire on the part of the volun
teeers to return to the United States
with their organizations. These three
proposed regiments, with three regi
ments of regulars to sail from San
Francisco on the 22d and 24th, and
those under orders for Manila, will
give General Otis 33.0O0 fighting men.
It is stated positively at the war de
partment that it was Intended to re
duce the infantry companies and artil
lery batteries In the United States to
W men each to Increase the batteries
In the Philippines to 105 men each, is
absolutely without foundation.
The approved plan for the reinforce
ment of the army operating In the
Philippines Is briefly stated by a high
official of the war department as fol
lows: "The Increase of the size of the com.
panics with General Otis to 128 men to
the company was made from 3.100 men,
heretofore In the hospital corps, which
the comptroller has decided may be
enlisted over and above the 65,000 men
provided by law. In addition the Twen.
ty-fourth and Twenty-fifth regiments of
Infantrv have been ordered to ftianna
and General Otis has been authorized
to organize three skeleton volunteer
regiments In Manila, officered from vol
unteers In the Philippines, for the reg
ular army. General Otis has Informed
the department that he can organise
these regiments. It Is proposed to send
him recruits from here to fill them to
their maximum limit. The arrange,
ments referred to will give General Otis
a fighting force of over 33,000 men of
the line. These plans have oeen ap
proved by the president and will be put
Into execution with tne least possiuie
The field and stair Officers ana cap
tains of these three regiments will be
selected from the volunteer officers who
have demonstrated their special fitness
to command and who have distinguish
ed themselves in action. It is expected
also that the first lieutenants will oe
chosen from second lieutenants In the
service In the Philippines who may he
ffamH-lallv commended by General Otis.
The volunteer second lieutenants prob
ably will go out from the United States
with the recruiting squaas.
SHIP NEGRO MINERS IN.
Operators Substitute Imported La
borers For Union Workmen.
Plttsburg.Kan. (Special.) The threat
the coal mine operators to Import
negroes to take the place of striking
union miners was made good when the
Western Coal and Mining company,
which Is the corporation through which
the Missouri Pacific Railway company
operates Its mines, brought In 175 ne
groes from Tennessee and Alabama and
unloaded them at Fleming, where
stockades had been built around the
Missouri Pacific mines.
The union men were out In force to
iV,a navrnoi Aflrf fndpfl VOTCd . With
considerable success, to prevent them
from going to work.
Among the union men were many
negroes who had been brought up from
the south during the strike of 1S93, and
these were largely Instrumental In
keeping many of the newcomers out
of the stockades. The result was that
only a few of the Imported negroes,
those having families and being desti
tute, went Into the stockades. There
waa no disturbance.
The agents of the four big companies
which are fighting the union declare
that enough negroes will be Imported
to operate their mines In Kansas, Mis
sourl, Arkansas and Indian Territory.
In Kansas they rely upon the Injunction
secured In the federal court at Leaven,
worth to prevent the strikers from In.
torfert&c with their operations.
A CANNIBAL FEAST
From the New Tork Press: Now that
we have fellow-citizens In the Philip
pines who are proficient In tbe gentle
art of cannibalism the whole subject of
anthropophagy becomes of Immediate
Interest These cannibals of ours in
the Island of Mindanao are a free-and
easy sort of people, blessed with good
appetites, and they would as soon eat
their friends George Frlsble Hoar and
Eugene Hale as anybody else. If those
distinguished gentlemen should venture
within their reach. Gorman? Well
possibly but even a savage has bis
On many of the islands of the South
Pacific cannibalism still flourishes in
spite of the efforts of the missionaries.
On the island of New Britain and on
many of the neighboring islands to the
eastward of New Guinea races of can
nibalB live who make no secret of the
fact that they are fond of human flesh.
On the Island of New Britain, which
belongs te Germany, there are several
fine plantations where the owners live
In fine houses furnished luxuriously In
European style. A traveler who recent
ly visited the estate of Ralum, on New
Britain, says that within a mile of the
plantation house are living chiefs who
keep slaves for the purpose of food, and
are in the habit of killing one every day
or two to satisfy their diabolical tastes
He says: "Not only do they do this
but they boast of It, and I have had
these people come and tell me how they
enjoyed their feast on the previous ev
ening, which had been some portion of
a human being."
On many of the neighboring Islands a
traveler has to be constantly on his
guard lest the natives lest the natives
take him unawares and make him Into
a roast or ragout.
Some of the South Sea cannibals are
head hunters, but not all. Among the
head hunters the biggest man In the
community Is the man who has the
tergest collection of human heads. It
is a sort of Australian ballot system, In
which every man votes for himself as
often as opportunity offers. It Is not
necessary that he get his heads In bat
tle; generally they are procured from
unsuspecting persons, who are murder
td In their sleep or are killed by a blow
from behind, when the head hunter
nas stolen stealthily upon them. It Is
.isldered Just as honorable to get a
aead In this way as It is to take it
from a man whom they have killed In
I fight. As te the old days of ballot
&ox stuffing no obloquy attached among
nis followers to the Tammany offlce
lolder who was elected by this means,
to among the head hunters as long as
i man has the heads it does not matter
low he got them. It Is looked upon
is quite worthy of praise for a head
lunter to kill his man by trickery as to
till him In a fight.
Our fellow citizens of Mindanao are
oth head hunters and cannibals. Cap-
Aln Webster of the British army, who
recently visited some of the Islands ly
ing to the eastward of New Guinea,
lays: "These natives are not only head
tunters and cannibals, but make no
lecret of It whatever. They are the
nost treacherous of all the people of
tie South Seas, and when apparently
n the most friendly terms are only
iwaltlng a favorable opportunity to
tatch the stranger unawares and to add
ine more head to their already huge
Election. I may say that during the
hole of my visit I hardly ever had my
revolver out of my hand." In the islands
fislted by Captain Webster he says
.hat In every case the victims are
itruck down from behind.
A little over a year ago there was
tonslderable attention attracted to the
lase of a Mr. Duncan, a trader among
Jie South Sea Islands, who was cap
ured by the natives of one of the isl
nds of the New Hebrides, killed and
laten. He was tied to a tree for three
lays and forcibly stuffed with food to
atten him. Then he was killed, roasted
Cannibalism principally flourishes to
lay among the islands which stretch
rom New Guinea to New Caledonia,
jid on the Island of Mindanao. In
ome of these islands the tribes will
requently make war on each other for
he express and avowed purpose of re
rlenlshlng their tribal larder. These
annibal tribes which make war are not
lenerally head hunters, though Bome
imea they are. The natives of Mln
lanao are warlike, fighting among
hemselves with the greatest ferocity,
well as against white men, and are
lead hunters as well as cannibals. They
Kjssess all the accomplishments.

A TRAMP SCIENTIST.
Ann Arbor, Mich. Dr. J. C Leonard
Is missing. Some say tbat he has left
bis bleaching bones on the mountain
side, as he himself predicted; some say,
"Doc Leonard? Not much! Can t kill
blm so easily!"
All agree that Dr. Leonard Is tbe
strangest combination of dentist, tramp,
palaeontologist and queer character
that every befriended a great univer
sity. Dr. Leonard first made himself known
to the University of Michigan by in
quiring of Harrison Soule, its treasur
er, through a letter, whether the col
lege had any use for relics and speci
mens in its museum.
Now, the university of Michigan is a
great and valuable Institution of learn
ingone of the greatest In the country;
but it has not millions of endowments,
like Tale and Harvard. It gets most
of its-money from the state by Jollying
the legislature, most of whose mem
bers have or have had, or will have,
sons in attendance there.
' Major Soule has no money to waste
on specimens he hasn't seen. He didn't
propose to buy a pig in a bag, and he
so replied, In more diplomatic phrase,
of course. The university had no fund,
he said, to pay for such articles.
Next Major Soule received a postal
card couched in rather less diplomatic
phrase than his own, thus:
"So you can't pay the expense, eh?
Then go to the devil! I'll pay It myself.
My rope Is nearly run, and some day
I'll turn up missing, and a few years
later a few bleached bones will be
found among the crags up In the moun
tains. I want to be remembered some
where on God's green earth, so kindly
accept my gifts, and some day, old cub,
perhap's we'll meet. J. C. LEONARD."
Pretty soon Major Soule began to re
ceive things, expenses paid; a huge 900
pound cinnamon bear, stuffed the larg
est ever killed an antelope, and rare
mining specimens. The collection grew
constantly. It now fills two cases in
the museum and Is considered very val
uable. There are Indian relics, shields,
axes, bows and arrows, blankets, te
pees and. minerals of every sort known
In the west.
Most pathetic of all Is a lockless gun
an old Mississippi rifle with a ham
mered barrel four feet long a relic of
the saddest tragedy of the plains, the
massocre of Lamoile Creek.
It was the gun belonging to the young
fellow who was butchered by the In
dians. His swetheart had stabbed her
self to the heart under a wagon not far
away, and he, wounded fatally, hid
himself to die in the bushes, first
wrecking off the locks and sights of his
rifle that the Indians might not use it.
The gun was found many years later
by Dr. Leonard and seat to the mu
seum. Dr. Ieonard and Treasurer Soule have
never met. but they have struck up
quite a friendship by correspondence.
Sometimes Dr. Leonard does a trip as
dentist, presumably to replenish his
funds. On one such trip he wrote to
"I travel along with two mules, a
cart, my dog, a gun and my tooth pull
ers all alone. I manage to stay In each
town long enough to pull a couple of
barrels of teeth and dicker for Borne
new specimen for the collection and
then move on."
At another time he wrote to Major
Soule for his portrait On receiving it
he returned his own, with a letter as
follows: "You look like about the same
kind of a sardine as I am. I send a pic
ture of my friend."
The last time Dr. Leonard was heard
from was in the fall of 1898. He was
tartlng upon an expedition through the
desert regions of Arizona to Investigate
the remains of cliff dwellers there and
In Old Mexico. He has never been
heard from since.
Perhaps he has indeed become "a few
bleached bones among the crags," but
white-haired old Treasurer Soule will
not believe he has lost forever the
friend he has never seen. He Is sure the
doctor will some day turn up with new
specimens for the "Leonard collection"
In the university museum.
Baby Girl Mascot.
The officers of the Seventeenth regi
ment of French chasseurs have adopted
a girl baby as a regiment mascot
The French regiments do not usually
have mascots, or pets, as the Americans
and British do. During the Spanish
American war the Frenchmen heard a
great deal about the American mascots.
The Illustrated papers published pages
of pictures of them, and excited the
French public, always eager for novel
ty. Now, the Frenchman does not love
dogs and goats quite as much as the
Anglo-Saxon does. A human being d
the fair sex Is more to his liking, and
the selection of one In this case strikes
the French public as a happy Improve
ment on the American mascot Idea.
Several officers of the Seventeenth
chasseurs found the little girl aban
doned In a railway carriage at Ram
boulllet, where the regiment Is station
ed. The baby would have been taken
to a foundling asylum, but the officers,
being kind hearted and In a good hu
