A New York dispatch carried by

British steamer Ethelwold, a small

lying at the outer edge of the forest
of shipping which skirts the south
Brooklyn water front, was held up
by United States customs officers on
suspicion that the vessel was about
to engage in a filibustering expedi
tion against the little West Indian
republic of San Domingo. The order
to detain the steamer was received
from Assistant Secretary McHarg of
the department of commerce and
labor at Washington, and was
promptly executed by William Loeb,
collector of the port of New York.
The Washington advices are that the
minister from Hayti had complained
to the state department that the
Ethelwold was believed to have been
engaged by Jose St. Pierre Giordan!
and General Juan Jiminez, San Do
mingans, to lead in a filibustering
expedition. Within an hour after re
ceipt of the order Collector Loeb had
two customs officers on the ship.
They were placed aboard with orders
not to let it sail."

Dhinagrl, an Indian student, Thurs

has stirred England In a manner un
known since the Phoenix park mur
ders. It has been a subject for self
congratulation by Englishmen that
Great Britain was immune from po
litical crimes of this nature. Great
sympathy is felt for Viscount Morley,
secretary of state, for India, the diffi
culties of whose position will bo
greatly increased by the murder. A
strong feeling has been aroused
against a number of the members of
the house of commons and others
who have encouraged the Indian agi
tation against the government. An
other consequence of the tragedy is
that henceforth it will be necessary
to offer police protection to public
men. It is understood that Scotland
yard already has detailed detectives
to follow Lord Morley and others
connected with tho Indian administrations."
GREAT TIMES AT SEATTLE
round of social and sight-seeing
ovonts.
As tho fair progresses tho grounds
continuo to appear more beautiful,
their carpets of grass and their riot
of flowers showing fairer as tho
pleasant weather heightens their
color. Tho averago attendance is
around 22,000 and success seems to
bo written In overy feature of tho
big show on tho shores of tho Pacific.
Tho Seattlo world's fair, in moral
tone, is to othor world's fairs as a
high class hotel is to a low divo,
judging from what I have been ablo
to observe," was tho statement mado
by Mrs. R. T. McKenzio, member of
tho International Purity Federation,
and also of four national organiza
tions of a similar kind.
Mrs. McKenzio has been stationed
in Seattle tho past six months. Sho
also states that remarks of a similar
nature had been mado to her by
many other persons who have at
tended former expositions. Mrs. Mc
Kenzle has been engaged in tho work
sinco the Chicago world's fair in
1893, and speaks with authority.
Mrs. McKenzio further stated that
so far as she could discover, officials
wore doing all they could to stop tho
white slave traffic and stamp out vice.
Resorts of ill fame were closed just
before the fair opened, after a hot
debate in tho city council and ener
getic work by tho citizens In favor
of the closing.
"Many people of tho east believe
that the people of west and especially
of tho Pacific coast are very looso in
their morals," continued Mrs. Mc
Konzio, "but they aro mistaken."
Vice Is Just as rampant in tho east,
only it is under cover, while in tho
west it is moro frank.
Tho grounds of the exposition aro
policed by two private detectives and
three field secretaries beside a large
force of exposition guards.
Friends of Mayor Busse of Chi

against the Chicago Daily Socialist

The following is taken from the
Omaha, Neb., Bee: "The United
States government has laid an inter
dict against the purchase of its own
use of goods made by a trust or 'a
company which has been 'adjudicat
ed to be a party to an unlawful trust
or monopoly.' The American Tobac
co company the tobacco trust has
been temporarily enjoined on this
ground and the commissary of the
department of the Missouri forbidden
to buy any of the smoking or chew
ing tobaccos made by the trust or
its allied companies. Omaha whole
salers have had a communication to
this effect from Lieutenant Colonel
Eastman, chief commissary. His
communication reads as follows: 'I
am informed by the commissary gen
eral, United States army, Washing
ton, D. C, that the secretary of war
has directed that no contract on be
half of the government be entered
into directly with any corporation
which hag been adjudicated to be a
party to an unlawful trust and mon
opoly and to be carrying on business
in violation of law, nor with any
middleman pr agent of any such
company, or', concern, where it is
without just cause, and whose pho
tograph was retained in the rogues'
gallery, despite the failure of the
police to obtain a conviction against
him. The mayor held that at least
two of General Bingham's lieuten
ants were guilty of misconduct in
this affair, and accordingly demand
ed their removal. With General
Bingham's retirement today went
several of his closest advisers and
the leading supporters of his
regime."
