CES8A COS TRANSPORT HANCOCK PROM PHILIPPINES ARRIVES. sssa-imsnt New Numbers S40 Men- Governor Poynter Gives the Boy a Hearty Welcome. Sea Francisco, Cel.. Aug. 1. "Tes, we're all right. We're had a fine trip ever and are mighty glad to get home." So shouted Colonel Mulford of the gallant First Nebraska from the deck of the Hancock at 1 o'clock Sunday fcaorning to the anxious party on board Um steam launch, Governor Irwin, tied Up alongside. On that little boat were Governor Poynter, Congressman Stark, Adjutant General Barry, Hon. Cadet Taylor and two newspaper men. "We have 840 men and forty officers of cur regiment on board. There are ten or eleven men sick in the hospital and 110 sick la quarters. No one is in serious condition," he addded. The big white transport was anchored eft the barge office perhaps five miles out from the Folsom street wharf. It had been sighted off Point Lobos at 10:30 p. m., much to the surprise of the "wharfingers," who did not anticipate her arrival till sunrise. But she stead ily steaflted in and anchored. Soon af ter the World-Herald man was apprised of the arrival and rustled together the governor s party, every man of whom had retired for the night. Gathering at the harbor commissioner's dock where it had been arranged through the courtesy of the commissioners that the Governor Irwin should be at the serv ice of Governor! Poynter at any time, the start was rrrade shortly after mid night for the Hancock. HAIL TO THE HANCOCK. Arriving in hailing distance of the transport, the launch was challenged and the captain responded in a voice that might have been heard at Oak land: "The governor of Nebraska Is on board." Instantly there swarmed upon the deck of the Hancock over 200 wide awake soldier boys, who evidently hadn't retired at alL Then arrived sev eral more with unmistakable evidence of having retired. No one was allowed to say a word till the captains were through with their argument. "Vou can tie up alongside," shouted the Hancock, "but you can't come on board. The quarantine officers haven't been here yet." So a compromise was made on the tie-up, and Colonel Mulford. who was first to lean over the rail, was quickly queried. GOVERNOR'S HEARTS WELCOME. Then the bluff old captain of the launch introduced Governor Poynter, who said: "Gentlemen of the First Nebraska: On behalf of the state I welcome you home. The state Is proud of you and la prepared to give you a grand welcome- home. You have done bravely." Somebody yelled: "Three cheers for the governor," and they were given rith a will. Adjutant General Barry area recognized by a volunteer with a "Hello, General Barry," and he caused three more cheers. Then the same old septals announced Congressman Stark, ted Just then the whistle blew hard noughi to wake the dead. "So say we all, solemnly said a soldier boy, and rverybody laughed. Just then Major Taylor appeared in response to questions by his father from the launch, and recognising his father wlth-a "Hello. Bill, how are all ihe folks," settled down to a long-range chat. "What kind of a trip did you haver' was asked of the big crowd. SOME OF AIMER S BEEF. "Oh, It was fine sailing, but, say, we In't overeat ourselves with the grub, e had some of Alger's embalmed beef coming over. We're going back to Ne braska to eat enough to take the wrin kles out of our bellies. How's the crops there this year?" "Beet corn crop we ever had," shout ad back General Barry. "Good; we'll all get jobs this fall; that's sure." "Are any of you going to re-enlist?" "Yes, like . We'll go to Nebraska and shuck com first." "How did you like General Otis?" "Oh, he liked us," yelled one sarcastic soldier. "He Invited me up to dinner with him the day before we left," and then the whole crowd yelled satirically,"? es, Otis is a fine fellow." So the running Are was kept up for a few minutes, the boys being assured that a fine camp had been prepared for them at the Presidio, and they In turn, over and over, expressed their exceed togly great pleasure to get home. OUT OF BANDAGES. "Have you any more nightcaps and abdomlna lbandages for us?" yelled Colonel Mulford. "The boys are about set of gun rags." ' . :What guns have you brought back sTth you?" asked General Barry. "Oh, the same old Bpringflelds. And We have Just as much trouble In keep ing the numbers straight as we used to have, general." - "How manyUtah boys are with your was asked. "Two hundred and sixty-two men and twenty-six officers, in charge of Major Brant," was the reply. "Did any one else come with your' "Tes; fifty-seven discharged men, representing every regiment In Manila." By this time the conversation thro' thirty feet of fog and air, with hissing Steam and splashing waves to make It uncertain in the darkness, the old cap tain of the launch decided to pull out, end the launch left with three parting ebeers for tho governor. Early Monday morning. the govem snent health officers boarded the trans port, bet since there were no contagi ous diseases on board the Inspection was soon over and by noon the boys were once more marching on American smL en route to their last volunteer eamp at the Presidio.

PEACE CO.'.'GRESS ENDS CONFERENCE OF NATIONS AT THE HAQUB ADJOURNS. While) all Desires Are Not Satisfied th Results Accomplished May Prove Par Reaching. The Hague, Aug. 1. The Internation al peace conference met lor Its last sitting Saturday, when it was announc ed that sixteen states had signed the arbitration convention, fifteen the oth er two conventions, seventeen the de claration prohibiting the throwing of F'"j".uic ur explosives from hallrwma sixteen the declaration prohibiting the use of asphyxiating gas and fifteen the ueciarauon prohibiting the use of pansive bullets. A letter was read from the hum f na io me pope, asking his moral support of the conference. The pope's iv'j, wmcu was reaa. promised co-operation, recalled the fact that he had many times performed the function of arbitration, and assured her raMli that, in spite of his present abnormal' position, the pope would contiau to sees: tne advancement of civilization. Baron de Staal delivered the farewell. thanking the representatives. He said the work accomplished, while no so complete as might be desired, was sin cere, wise and practical. The great principles of the sovereignty of individ ual states and international solidity. apparently so opposing, had been rec onciled by what they had accomplished. e amrmed that In time to come ln tltutiona which had their origin in the ieed of accord would be the domlnat- ng influence, and that thus the work of the conference was truly notorious. Minister Esturnelles and Dr. Beaufort followed, the latter saying that if the conference had not realized Utopian dreams, nevertheless it has disproved pesalmistl forebodings and the moral effect would more and more Influence public opinion and aid governments to reduce the limitation of armies, which still remain a source of grave consider ation for statesmen. Baron de Staal then declared the conference closed. The three conventions dealing with arbitration, the laws and customs of war and the adaptation of the Geneva convention to naval warfare were not signed by Germany, Austria-Hungary, China. England, Italy, Japan, Luxem burg, Servia, Switzerland or Turkey. The United States signed only the arbitration convention and that under reserve, Roumania, also made reserva tions. The three declarations prohibiting the throwing of explosives from balloons, the use of asphyxiating projectiles and the use of dumdum bullets were not signed by Germany, Austria-Hungary. China, England, Italy, Japan, Luxem burg, Servia or Switzerland, and the (United States signed only the declara tion regarding the throwing of explo. sives from balloons. GENERAL NEWS.

Last winter 'allfornia had troubles of her own Ikewlse a legislature. She had nearly orgotten those Nebraska resolutions and but few of the volunteers from Manila had ever heard of them.

Official Ire leg were considerably upset by the ntervtew published In the New York Herald with Admiral Dewey at Trieste, which serious reflections are made jpon Germany and the statement at- ributed to him that our next" war 1 v.. ,, M..iin nth,i.h here Is enough In the official reports uade by Admiral Dewey while in tba Philippines to bear out the observa- 1 lone reported In the Interview, both Secretary Hay and Secretary Long ln- list that there must be some mistake. They cannot btlleve that Admiral Dewey, who has been so discreet in all f his public utterances up to this time, vould comment so boldly about Inter- latlunal affairs, especially while he la aaaing through a European port. There Is no doubt that Admiral Dew- ry was suspicious of German lhterfer- nee for some time after he first took lold of affairs In the Philippines. His rfficial dispatches published at the una and since clearly Indicated this. But the authorities Insist that a de. Idedly better feeling now ezlsta be- ween thla country and Germany and hat Admiral Dewey, knowing the de- re of the administration to encourage hia spirit, would not Intentionally say r do anything to promote discord. The call of the German minister, Mr. Von Mumm, at the state department rave rise to the report that he had ;ome to make some representation to iecretary Hay concerning the inter- irlew. When I ssked Secretary Hay he Jeclared that It was not true, that the minister had called upon an entirely Jlflerent matter, aao mat tne uewey ntervlew was not mentioned. He said hat no official action had been taken by the department and that none would be, certainly for the present, for he :ould not believe that Admiral Dewey had been correctly quoted. I am satisfied there must be some mistake," said Secretary Long, "Ad- mlral Dewey could never have made the statement attributed to him, I feel quits sure. Then I do not see that there could be any official attention given to the matter. Minister von Mumm aecunea to dis cuss tho Dewey Interview In any way. A member of the diplomatic corps with whom I discussed the matter said: My opinion la that the German gov ernment will not take any official cog nizance of the Interview which Admiral Dewey gave to a Herald correspondent at Trieste. It differs vary materially from ths utterances of Captain Cogh Ian, of which the German Government complained. In this Instance Admiral Dewey has simply expressed an opinion. The German government and the Oar- man people and the people of Admiral Dswey's oountry as wall, may regret that the admiral entartalas aaos as opinion, but I do not see that ths Oar. man government would be JasUAsd la teals aay action.

Apparently no one had seen the booting, and none knew whether there Uad been a battle between the two dy-' .ng men or whether they had been shot ay others. A third man, who was said- :o have received a wound, left the icene at once, and was not seen again. For some unaccountable reason no police were on hand to Investigate the murder for over an hour after the mooting occurred. 1 ne two woundea men my in ineir 010 upon me pave- ment and the hysterical mob seemed onable to grasp the situation with suf Jclent deflniteness to know what should 'je dope. After a bit some one who rec- gnlzed the wounded men dispatched, i messenger for Father Judge, who ar Ived In time to administer the last rites if the church to Edward Callahan. Both Joyce and Callahan were em ployed In Armour's cellar. They went much together and were regarded as pals. It finally was whispered about that lohn Shanahan, the saloonkeeper, had ione the shooting. Thera were those who said they had seen the fight, but -ney were unaoie to give a conereni lce at Iwin arrlved on lhe ene. ind got wind of the Bhanahan theory .hey went to the back door of his sa- I loon. As Policeman Montague ap proached the dwr a shot was fired ia I :he saloon and the search for Shanahan s'as hastily abandoned. The police took another tack, and at 3 o'clock la the morning Shanahan was still at arge. It was generally accepted, at that hour that Shanahan was the one who had fired the shota which caused tba loath of Joyce and the fatal wounding of Callahan, but there was no one who could atate at first hand that such had oeen the case. The police are making headway slowly and expect to find wit nesses to clear up the mystery which invclopes the extraordinary affair. Ten Thousand on s Strike- Chicago, III. (Special.)
