WANT MORE FICHTINO.
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 will be
organized and officered Irtukelffton 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 how
many men will enlist. The number has
not been very large, as there seems to
he a desire on the part of the volun
teeers to return to the United States
with their organizations. These three
proposed regiment, with three regi
ments of regulars to sail from San
Francisco on the Kd and 21th, and
those under orders for Manila, will
give General Otis 33,000 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
&5 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
Philippine Is briefly stated by a high
official of the war department as fol
lows: "The Increase of the size of the com
panies 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 Twenty-fourth
and Twenty-fifth regiments of
Infantry have been ordered to Manila
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 been ap
proved by the president and will be put
Into execution with the least possible
The Held and staff officers and cap
tain of these three regiments will be
selected from the volunteer officers who
have demonstrated their special fitness
to command and who have dlstlngulah
ed themselves In action. It Is expected
also that the first lieutenants will be
chosen from second lieutenants In tha
service In the Philippines who may be
esoet-lallv commended by General Otis.
The volunteer second lieutenants prob
ably will go out from the United States
with the recruiting squads.
SHIP NEGRO MINERS IN.
Operators Substitute Imported La
borers For Union Workmen.
Plttsburg.Kan, (Special.) The threat
of 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 I the corporation through which
the Missouri Pacific Hallway company
operates Its mines, brought in 176 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
meet the negroes end endeavored, 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 or 1W3, 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
was no disturbance.
The agents of the four big companies
which are fighting the union declare
that enough negroes will be Imported
to ooerate their mines In Kansas, Mis
souri. Araftnsaa and Indian Territory.
In Kansas they rely upon the Injunction

the Island of Mindanao are a free-and-easy

appetites, and they would as soon eat

Eugene Hale a anybody else, if those
distinguished gentlemen should venture

Pacific cannibalism still flourishes In
spite of the effort 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
Dibals live who make no secret of the
fact that they are fond of human flesh
On the island of New Britain, whlc
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 th
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 say: "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
lergest 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
tie; generally they are procured from
jnsuspecting persons, who are murder
ed In their sleep or are killed by a blow

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
luntera and cannibals, but make no
lecret of it whatever. They are the
nost treacherous of all the people of
Jie South Seas, and when apparently

A little over a year ago there war
lonBiderable attention attracted to the

Jie South Sea Islands, who was cap-

Cannibalism principally flourishes to
lay among the Islands which stretch
rom New Guinea to New Caledonia,
.nd 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
ilenifhing their trlfcal larder. These
nnnibal tribes which make war are not
enerally head hunters, though some-
imes 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 aa well as cannibals. They
tosseea all the accomplishments.
Among the smaller Islands which

"Doc Leonard? Not muchl Can't kli:
him so easily!"
All agree that Dr. Leonard Is the
strangest combination of dentist, tramp
palaeontologist and queer charactei
that every befriended a great univer
Dr. Leonard first made himself known
to the University of Michigan by in
quiring of Harrison Soule, It 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
ing one of the greatest in the country;
but it has not millions of endowments,
like Tale and Harvard. It gets most
of it 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 Lamolle 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 lock and sights of his
rifle that the Indians might not use it.
The gun was found many years later
by Dr. Leonard and Best to the mu
seum. Dr. leonard and Treasurer Soule have
never met. but they have struck up
quite a friendship by correspondence.
Sometime Dr. Leonard does a trip as
.dentist, presumably to replenish his
funds. On one uch 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 some
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."
T"he 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
Iriend 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 a 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
frreat deal about the American mascots.
The' Illustrated paper published pages
of pictures of them, and excited the
French public, always eager for novel

Anglo-Saxon does. A human being cf
the fair sex Is more to his liking, and
the selection of one in this case strike
the French public as a happy Improve
