FOBTBILEY, Kas., Oct. 26. A
review of ill the troops In camp,
WO In number, was beld Saturday
morning in Smoky II ills flats, at tb
tout be rn end of the reservation and
is a purely military spectacle It li
doubtful If, lo this country, at least.
It was ever surpassed. There was aa
absence of tbe glitter and gay colon
of holiday occasions. Tbe unl forma
were for the most part atalned with
hard work, but tbe men, after week
of drill, were in excellent condition,
and wben tbey streamed in long,
close get ranks, past the reviewing
stand, Gen. Ian Hamilton of tbe
British army could not contain hla
expressions of pleasure, and repeated
ly expressed bis gratification. Even
tbe subalterns of tbe regular army
seemed pleased with thornselvrs and
a'l tbe world at the coccluslon of
the review, and that tells, s much
as anything can, that the allair was
a most decisive success.
The first brigade under General L.
D. Brant hart the right of the line.
It comprised the Second, Twenty
first and one battalion of the Twelfth
r gular Infantry. They camcs in col
ubds of companies and made a fine
ihowing, ,
General Bell, superbl? mounted on
white-faced chestnut, came next
with' hla hrluaffe. made un of the i
Sixth and Twenty fifth regular in
fantry and the Fifty-fifth Iowa.
General Bell has been extremely for
tunate In the makeup of bis brigade,
for there are uo finer organizations
In the array than the Sltxb and
Twenty-fifth, aDd the Fifty-first
Iowa is .'without d'uiht one of the
b st national guard organizations In
the country. Its bearing and march
ing railed forth warm praise on all
sides. Thl3 regiment bas made a
most favorable impression on the
officers of the regular army for its
ability in the field, and its work
today showed It was as good in the
fancy points of the game of war as
whe n id is marching over the hills or
covering long stretches of dusty i
toads. The Third brigade, under
General Barry, was hcadod by the
Missouri provisional regiment, that
looked and marched exceedingly well.
Its ranks were full and well kept and
It was highly praised.
The Second Nebraska, tb.it came
next, was as good as the best of the
national guard regiments. Colonel
McDonnell, on a handsome dun
horse, was. a conspicuous figure at
tbe bea'J of his raiment and the
battalions that camo afi.er bim were
as satisfactory to Juoic upon as ti e
The cavalry brigade, under Gen-ral
Carr, followed the infantry, arid in
appear nee and marching it sustained
Its reputation of befog a portion of
the finest light cavalry In the world.
Nine batterleg of artillery rumbled
along after horstnen bad passed and J
then came the prosaic but highly
important quartermaster's train. In
the afternoon tbero wero athletic
games by enlisted men of the regular
irrry on the open air gymnasium be
tween Fort P.iiey and Junction City.
Major Raker, the chief quartermas
ter, delivered a lecture ot "Transpor
tation," which was hi-hly Interest
ing to tbe military men.

While a mob was forming tu lynch

OTTAWA, Ont., Oct. 23. In thej
senate yesterdaySir MacKenzie Bo well,1
leader of the opposition, asked for In
formation concerning the Alaskan
boundary award.
Mr. Scott, for the government, re
plied that the most important reason
why the Canadian commissioners did
not approve of the award was that it
was not a judicial document decision.
Bir Mackenzie Bowell sail that it
was unfortunate that in every case
when negotiations have taken place
between the United States and Eng
land; where Canada was affected, the
United States diplomats had succeed
ed in securing islands which command
the most important points of the do
minion. There was the island .right
opposite the harbor of Port Arthur.
In the case of a difficulty, he said that
island would have to be secured by the
British people for, if fortified, it
would command the entrance to that
harbor. Uoless that was done the
United States could secure it and with
the guns they have at present would
be able to aestroy the whole connec
tion between tr e east and west. It
was the same with the island of Baa
Juan, another secured by treaty nego
tiations. "Now," said Mr. MacKenzie, "the
United States will command Fori
Simpson. In every case Canadian in
terests were sacrificed."
Senator McMullen said that the de
ci. 'on would create as much dissatis
faction in Canada as there was in tbe
Transvaal and in Ireland.

ney covering the finances and gen

test! tied that be had opposed the
Sheldon reorganization plan and had
as a counter-proposition urged that
the stock be assessed in order to raise
the amount necessary to save the
combination from default and bank
ruptcy. His plan of assessment was
opposed by Charles M. Schwab, hold
er at that time, of $20,000,000 of the
stock, who, according to Mr. Nixon
declared that the stockholders would
not pay the assessment. Mr. Schwab
so Mr. Nixon swt re, declined to pus
up any more uoless the Bethlehem
steel bonds were given preference as
a lieu on tbe shipbuilding plants to
the first mortgage bonds, Mr. Nix
on's testimony also developed the
fact that there was a wide discrep
ancy as to estimated earnings in let
ters written by treasurer Gary to
members of the reorganization coin
mltte, and Samuel Untermeyer,
counsel for the bondholders, asked if
It did not show that there had been
an attempt to minimize the value of
