as counsel for Venezuela before the
Anglo-Venezuelan arbitration commis
sion, w’as a passenger on the American
line steamship St. Paul, which arrived
here today. With him were Mrs. Hat
rison and the baby. The passage across
the Atlantic was a rather stormy one
and Mrs. Harrison was sick much of
the time.
Mr. Harrison, who says he is not in
the best of health, declared, however,
that he had not missed a meal through
"i have enjoyed the trip," he de
clared. "After leaving Paris I spent
some little time in Germany and while
there I saw the kaiser. I talked wit1*
him for a short time and found him a
very agreeable man. When you asic
me whut he said. I shall have to answer
as I did in Germany when one of the
reporters there asked me that question
‘You will have to ask the kaiser.’ I
stopped for a short time in London be
fore sailing to tills country. The weath
er w"s thick when 1 was there and I
caught a bad cold in the fog. I at
tended a dinner at the London Cham
ber of Commerce Just before suiling. It
was private. No reporters were pres
ent and i made a little speech."
Mr. Harrison's atentlon was called to
the fact that It had been reported here
that he had a falling out with Mr.
Choate. "We are as friendly as ever.
1 think he is a good man for the place
and he is doing good work there for

Mont Important Military KipnlltIon of
the Autumn Campaign.
MANILA, Nov. 6.—This evening a
flet of transports ami gunboats left Ma
nila for the most important expedition
of the autumn campaign. Its destina
tion Is supposed to be Dagupnn or some
other northern port.
General Wheaton commands with a
brigade consisting of the Thlrteentn
infantry, the Thirty-first infantry, two
guns of the Sixth artillery and two
Gatlings. The transports Sheridan,
Francisco de Reyee and Aztec carry
the troops, with the gunboat Helena
as escort.
A dispatch boat was sent ahead to
arrange a rendezvous with the Unite i
States cruiser Charleston and the other
warships that are patrolling the north
< oast of Luzon.
Thp landing will be made under cov
er of the guns of the fleet. It is as- ]
sumed here that the purpose of the j
expedition is to move down the Dag- j
upan-Manila railroad toward Tarlac or !
to prevent Aguinuldo’s forces making !
another base further north.
Dagupan and Apparri are the strong- I
holds of the insurgents in the north
and it is supposed are the points where
most of the filibustering parties land.
There is Ko Improvement In Condition
of \ lev President.
PATERSON, N. J.. Nov. 6 —There
was no improvement in the condition
of Vice President Hobart today. Mes
sages of sympathy were received from
President McKinley, Secretary of State !
Hay and Mrs. Hay and General Wes- j
ley Merritt. Among the callers at the j
Hobart residence was Attorney General
Dr. Newton, who has been rather
silent about the condition of his pa
tient. consented to talk yesterday.
"He is resting comfortably," said
Dr. Newton.
"Do you think Mr. Hobart has a
chance to recover?” he was asked.
"1 can only compare his case with
others of this kind."
"Did the others you refer to ever
get better?"
"I am sorry to say they did not,"
said the physician.
Dr. Newton said he would not give
an opinion as to how long the patient
might live. He might drop off at any
moment and he might go for three or
four days, so remarkable has been his
\itality all through his serious illness.

LONDON, Nov. 3.—(New York
World Cablegram.'—The South African
situation is again causing the deepest
alarm. The silence of the war office,
which received today several dis
patches from Capetown and Durban,
the holding back of the list of casual
ties at Ladysmith and finally the an

month, ull combine to show that the
position of Ilrltish power in South
Africa is one of the greatest peril. The

NEW YORK, Nov. 4— [Special to
the World-Herald.] There was a
breathless interval then a big brass
gong clanged out the signal for the
opening of hostilities. The champions
looked the picture of physical condi
tion. and subsequent events substan
tiated it. But what is the use of goir|
over the battle by rounds. So far as
the boxing contest is concerned, it
was a burlesque on modern gladitorial
work, a rough and tumble, typical bar
room fight, in which only biting and
kicking was barred. An edifying spec
tacle for modern civilisation.
There was no boxing from gong to
end. They came together like a couple
of mad bulls, and there was nothing
but pulling and hauling and mauling
until the finish. The only wonderful
teature about the affair was the mar
velous endurance of the two big brutes.
Sharkey is a demon, and hail he the
bulk of the boilermaker the rowdy
proceedings would have speedily ter
Sharkey is one of the pluckiest and
most resolute and aggressive. He was
after Jeffries every minute of the
bloouy time. There was no let up. It
was rush and grunt and dash, a bruis
ing of flesh nnd a crunching of bones,
nothing else. Sharkey's left ear was
hanging to the side of his head, while
Jeffries' expansive nose was flattened
like an Ethiopian.
Moth took enough punishment to
kill a dozen men. and In the twenty
second and twenty-third Jeffries sim
ply hammered the sailor’s face into a
pulp ami his right uppercuts were
somthing terrific, and the human frame
must needs be of cast iron to have
withstood them. He staggered about

fries, while Siler was endeavoring to
adjust the mitt. Realizing what this
meant JefTries broke away from Siler
and swung his right good and hard on
Sharkey's blooming ear and Siler
rushed between the struggling giants,
separating them finally and with an
emphatic gesture gave the battle to
Thus another great fighter, after a
fashion, had tasted the bitterness of
defeat, and this time it was the bull
dog Sharkey, who merited all he got.
He was battered to a standstill, and
Jim Jeffries can rightfully claim the
mastery of all fighters, big and little,
great and small, scientific and rough
and tumble.

LONDON, Nov. 4.—Related dispatch
es from the British camp at Ladysmith,
Natal, add little information regarding
Monday's fight, except the estimates of
the Boer losses which are now said to
be ninety-five killed and 200 wounded,
mostly victims of artillery shells,
which have done such great havoc that
it is said General Joubert, the Boer
commander in chief has written a let
ter to General White, the British com
mander, protesting against the use of
lyddite. According to all accounts the
presence at Ladysmith of the long
range naval guns and the splendid
shooting of the bluejackets have ma
terially improved the position of the
British. A temporary armistice was
declared Monday evening to allow of
the collection of the dead and wound
ed. A dispatch from Kimberley, dated
October 29, said all the wounded were
doing well. Small bodies of Boers,
about 400 stioug. were then frequently
seen. They apparently came from
Mafeking. for the purpose either of as
sisting in the attack of Kimberlev or
to resist the advance of reinforcements.
The absence of water outside the pla'-e
causes the Boers to continually move
their camps.

In the summer of 1898 the Govern
ment Indian Bureau invited all tribes
of Indians in this country to send dele
gates to an Indian Congress, and they
gathered from far and near with their
ponies and tepees and gaudiest trap
pings in the Exposition Grounds at
Omaha. Never before had there been
and never again will there be such a
gathering. There were about five hun
dred of them, some partly civilized, but
the greater portion picturesque in
original savagery. Strange as it may
seem at this late day many of the In
dians declared that before coming to
Omaha they had no idea what multi
tudes of white men there were or how
hopeless it was to try to stand against
them. This was probably the last time
that so complete and spectacular a
view of the North American Indian
will be possible and those who had the
privilege of witnessing it are to be
counted fortunate. At the time of the
Indian Congress a prominent pho
tographer obtained permission to take
the photographs of the most noted
chiefs present and succeeded in obtain
ing a collection which never will be
pqualed. Mr. Rinehart, the photograph
er, copyrighted all these pictures and
placed in a few art stores some hand
colored proofs which, notwithstanding
their high price, sold at once, and these
Indian pictures have become the fad of
the year. The Chicago Great Western
Railway has succeeded at large expense
in obtaining from Mr. Rinehart the
privilege of reproducing the best four
of these pictures. Chiefs “Wolf Robe,”
"I^ouison," “Hollow Horn Bear,” and
“Hattie Tom," and have incorporated
them in an art calendar for 1900, which
is pronounced the most artistic produc
tion yet attempted. The heads are
6x8 inches, one on sheet, wonderfully
reproduced in all their original colors,
and when framed make most striking
and effective pictures, particularly
suited for holiday gifts. Owing to the
expense but a very small edition has
been issued. They will be sent, how
ever, while the supply lasts to any per
son sending 2a cents in stamps or silver
to cover the royalty charges and the
