General Miles has recommended that
the Eleventh cavalry and Twenty-
eighth infantry be sent to the Philip
pines. Two regiments are all that the
secretary desires to order to the Phil
ippines at present. These * regiments
areto take the place of regiments in
the Philippines to be brought home
which have been serving there three
years or more and the terms of enlist
ment of men about to expire , The or
der will not interfere with the depart
ment's plans for reducing the army in
the Philippines. The regiments which
are to be returned as soon as the
troops are ready are the Fourth , Sev
enteenth , Twentieth and Twenty-sec
ond infantry. These regiments have
been longest in the islands.
Advices just received from Cataba-
logan , island of Samar , say that twelve
men of company G of the Ninth in
fantry , under command of Sergeant
Willford , who had been sent from
Bassy to San Antonio to investigate
and report in regard to the number of
bolomen in the vicinty , were attacked
by 140 Insurgents , who rushed on them
with great violence , killing two of the
soldiers and wounding two others.
Willford remained cool and collected
during the attack and the survivors
say he acted splendidly. Fourteen of
the insurgents were killed. Captain
Bookmiller of company G recommends
Willford for a medal of honor and
Privates Swanson and Vero for certifi
cates of merit.
DEATH GOES WITH A KISS ,
New York. ( Special. ) John Chart-
rand , manager of a skating rink at
Hoboken , N. J. , is dead from the ef
fect sof a pistol wound in his head and
his wife is under arrest pending in
vestigation. Mrs. Chartrand's story
was that her husband has been unable
to provide for her of late and for that
reason she had gone to live with her
mother. She visited her husband at
the ring and remained with him all
night. She says that when she was
about to leave the rink her husband
took out a revolver and offered it to
her. Chartrand had arranged , she
says , to go on a hunting trip to be
gone ten "days and Mrs. Chartrand was
to have taken care of the rink during
his absence. He gave her the revolver ,
she says , to protect herself during her
stay at the rink.
Mrs. Chartrand says that she put
her arms around her husband's neck
to kiss him goodby and the revolver in
some way was discharged. The bullet
entered Chartrand's head behind the
left ear and he died before he could be
taken to a hospital.

Louisville , Ky. ( Special. ) J. M. Kid-
well , a grandfatherram Oldham coun
ty , led Miss Lucy Wilson , a blushing
maid of forty summers , up to the
front of a bobtailed country street car
and they were married by a hastily
picked up preached whom the accom
modating driver had provided. It was
the bride's first matrimonial venture ,
but tho groom's third , and he got
through with it Just in time.
As the preacher said "I declare you
man and wife" a foam-covered horse
brought up a mud-covered buggy on a
gallop. Two stalwart sons of the old
groom piled out. The father waved his
hand gayly to them through the win
"Too late , boys , " he laughed. "It's
done. " Then the boys drove off with
out offering congratulations.
Charlie Ashcraft , the driver of the
car that runs from Louisville to High
land Park , eight miles , was just start
ing on his 1 o'clock run when an old
man with a woman hailed him. The
first question after getting aboard the
car was for a magistrate. Ashcraft
offered the country policeman , but he
would not do. Then they tld him they
must get married and quickly.
"They're following us close ; whip
up , " begged the man. The little mules
never made the eight miles so quickly
before. None of the passengers want
ed to get off. It was too much sport.
As the car stopped at Highland Park
the driver spied Rev. A. Staul , a min
ister. In five minutes the runaways
were man and wife.
THE PLAGUE FOUND IN LIVERPOOL ,
"Washington , D. C. ( Special. ) The
United States consul at Liverpool has
cabled to the state department that
two cases of bubonic plague and a few
other suspicious cases have developed
in a hospital in Liverpool. The facts
were communicated to the marine hos
pital service. Surgeon General "Wyman
has cabled Passed Assistant Surgeon
Thomas , who did similar w'ork in the
outbreak at Glasgow some months ago ,
to proceed immediately to Liverpool
and investigate the outbreak and keep
this government adcised of the situa
This is the first outbreak of plague
n Liverpool in the recollection of au
thorities here. No immediate danger
to United States ports is apprehended ,
although there will be a much more
rigorous examination of incoming ves
sels and passengers from Liverpool by
the health authorities taken hereafter.
The official report received here does
not indicate whether the cases were of
the virulent or mild type.
Rome. ( Special. ) The port of Liver
pool , England , has been declared in
fected with bubonic plague. Arrivals
from Liverpool at Canadian ports will
undergo the customary infection.
Bordeaux , France. ( Special. ) Minis
terial instructions have been received
here to disinfect all vessels arriving
at Bordeaux from Liverpool.
IOWA ROBBERS AROUSE BANKERS ,
Des Moines.Ia. ( Special. ) Early this
morning the Des Moines police were
asked by telephone to send detectives
to Union county to work on a bank
robbery case at Arispe , on the Great
Western railroad , sixty-five miles from
The discovery that the bank had
been robbed was made this morning.
Th'e deed was done during the night
while a heavy rainstorm prevented
suspicion and covered the tracks of
the robbers. The bank is a private
one , managed by Burr Forbes & Son.
The safe was blown open and about
5400 taken , chiefly in silver and small
pieces. The safe , or vault , was a new
one , and considered perfect. The door
was blown off with dynamite or nitro
glycerine and the safe wrecked. A
larger amount in a smaller safe near
by was not secured. It has been cus
tomary for the bank to have on hand
between $3,500 and $4,000 , according to
the bank's Des Moines correspondents.
It is believed at Arispe that the rob
bery was committed by two men and
that they departed following the Great
Western tracks northward , but the
heavy rain which fell during the night
makes it impossible to get any trac
of tHe men.

United States Shows World Surpassing
, Gold In tho Treasury Surpasses All
Records and Exceeds Any Am *
ount Held Elswhere.
"Washington , D. C. ( Special. Hon.
Ellis H. Roberts , treasurer of the
United States , In his report of the
transactions of his office during the
last fiscal year , says that the treas
ury was never stronger than at the
close of that period. The operations ,
which were of the first 'order both in
variety and magnitude , resulted in
noteworthy changes in the paper cur
rency , as wel las a steady and health
ful growth of gold in the treasury and
In the general stock. The net ordinary
revenues for the year were $587,685o-J7 ,
an increase of $20,144,485 above thoso
of 1900 , which were the next highest re
corded. The increase came from each
of the heads of resource , but chiefly
from internal revenue.
On the side of the expenditures the
total of $509,967,353 has been exceeded
only four times , in 1S63 , 1864 , 1865 and
1899. The surplus of $77,717,894 was
slightly under $2,000,000 less than in
1900. Inclusive of the transactions af
fecting the public debt , the aggregate
receipts were $1,146,489,306 and the ag
gregate disbursements $1,077$6S,052.
For the first quarter of 1902 , although
the act of March 2 , 1901 , was operative ,
reducing the revenue , the receipts were
only $3,417,950 less than for the like
period of 1901 , while the expenditures
for the same months were reduced by
almost exactly $20,000.
The reserve of $150,000,000 in gold re
quired by the financial law of 1900
has been kept intact by the daily sub
stitution of gold coin and bullion out
of the general fund for the notes re
deemed. These redemptions , which
amounted to $24,697,858 for the year ,
do not indicate any preference for
gold over paper , but simply the desire
for large denominations , which are
most conveniently supplied in gold cer
DISTRIBUTION OF CASH.
After making certain deductions
from items not available in general
payments the free cash was $156,911.-
664 , which was distributed among the
ten offices of the treasury and the
twelve offices of the mint , including
$104,416,973 In the national bank depos
itories. In the first quarter of 1902
the deposits in national banks increas
ed $7,097,855 , while the available cash
balance was reduced by $6,913,244.
The issue of the 2 per cent consols
of 1930 in exchange for the loans ma
turing in 1904 , 1907 and 1908 was con
tinued up to December 31 , 1901 , from
the time the total amount of the prin
cipal converted reached $449,490,750.
These transactions involved the pay
ment of an aggregate sum of $45,409,607
On April 1 was begun under the or
der of the secretary of the treasury the
purchase of bonds of the same loans ,
at a price computed to earn 1.726 per
cent. Up to June 30 the purchase
amounted to $14,359,520 of principal , at
a cost of $16,257,928. By this process
and under a notice of the secretary of
the treasury September 10 inviting of
fers to sell to the government $20,000-
of bonds including the loan of 1905 ,
purchases were carried up to $40,477-
990 , at an aggregate cost of $49,438,436.
Of the funded loan of 1891 , on which
interest ceased August 18 , 1900 , bonds
with face value of $31,705,250 were re
deemed during the year , leaving a bal
ance of $274,600 outstanding and in the
new fiscal year payments reduced the
balance to $12,500.
Although the aggregate of the deb * ,
has been slightly increased , the
swelling of ttie figures was due to the
enlarged issue of gol dand silver cer
tificates. On October 1 all but $46,134-
950 of the new 2 per cent bonds were
held by the treasury or national banks
as security for circulating notes an < ?
NEW USE FOUND FOR PUMPKIN ,
Flora , 111. ( Special. ) A new use has
been found for the pumpkin in South
ern Illinois. An apple evaporator at
Noble is being used for drying the
fruit , and the product finds ready sale
In the markets. The pumpkins are
cut into long strips and dried very
much in the same manner as apples.
These strips are then pressed into
cakes. It is claimed that 90 per cent 1 <
of a pumpkin can be evaporated. The ;
dried fruit has been tested by baker
ies and hotels in various cities and
pronounced superior to the canned ar >
ticle. In this section of Illinois the
pumpkin grows to an enormous size
and is unusually prolific. Specimens
weighing seventy pounds have been
exhibited in this city during the last ;
season. The growers are paid at the
rate of $3 per ton. and many farmers tl
have grown a ton to the acre in their
cornfields , despite the unprecedented

Gernaert , the commissioner appointed
by the Belgium Plate Glass compa
nies , submitted a proposition to the liE
board of directors of the Pittsburg E
Plate Glass company which , if put in
operation , would curtail the production
of plate glas sto the actual demands of
the country. The Pittsburg company
has a capacity for the production of 20
per cent more glass than the country :
GREAT AMERICAN SYNDICATE FORMEI ,
St. Petersburg. ( Special. ) The No-
vosti says the representative of a ffreat
American syndicate have just left St
Petersburg for the purpose of buying
or leasing all available land along the
Siberian railroad. The syndicate IB
provided with more than 15,000,000 rou
bles. Nothing is known In American
circles about such an undertaking.
The Bourse Gazette devotes two col
umns to an analysis of the projeet of
Murray A Verner of Pittsburg to in
vest $50,000,000 in electric traction in
St. Petersburg. It calls upon the mu
nicipal council to weigh carefully what
is offered against what is asked and
not to reject the American proposition
without conclusive reasons.

The Russian government , according
to the Transcaucasus correspondent of
the Novoe Vremya , has not decided
what will be done with the 40,000 Ar
menian fugitives who have gathered
n the transcaucasus district since 1893.
Those who desire to do so may return
to Turkey at their own expense. Those
electing to remain may seek admission
into a peasant commune. If some rej
main whom the communes refuse to
admit they must apply for admission
into a local organization of Meschanles
or ordinary unprivileged subjects.
After 1903 all must be Russian sub
jects or quit the empire. Those who
came after February , 1901 , will not en
joy the privileges granted to earlier
arrivals , but must be .deported. Twen

the czar the Armenians may acquire
NORTHWESTERN RAISES ITS WAGES ,
Chicago , 111. ( Special. ) Thousands
of employes of the Chicago & North
western railway system are to reap
the benefits of an increase in wages.
Nearly all the trainmen in the employ
of the corporation will be benefited.
Beginning tomorrow the advance in
the schedule goes into effect.
The rise In wages directly affects the
conductors , brakemen and baggage
men employed on the Chicago , St.
Paul , Minneapolis & Omaha division
of the system.
The action of the company is a di
rect result of the conference held be
tween the officials and leaders of the
employes' organizations. These confer
ences have extended over several
weeks. The demands of the men were
finally conceded by the company offi
cials to be just and the decision to

ON TRAIL OF THE FILIPINO CHIEFS ,
Manila. ( Special. ) Advices from Ca-
tabalogan , capital of the island of Sa
mar , say General Smith has reliable
information regarding the wherei i
abouts of the insurgent leader , Luk- !
ban , who is being hard pressed. Small
skirmishes take place daily. Cataba-
logan was under fire yesterday. Gen
eral Smith expects to clear the island
of insurgents by Christmas.
Colonel Robe of the Ninth infantry ,
in his official report of the Balangiga
disaster , in regimental orders , praises
the magnificent heroism of the dead
American soldiers. To the susvivors
he says :
"Your splendid , courageous , defen
sive and aggressive warfare at Ba
langiga has gone into history as a
rare achievement of your regiment. I
am proud of you. To you and to those
who fought and fell the army is in
debted for "a superb demonstration of
what the bravery of a few determined
men may accomplish under most un
equal and unfavorable circumstances. "
