SULTAN AGREES TO PAY UP ,
P.aris , Nov. 5. The dispatch of Ad
miral Caillard's squadron from Toulon
to Turkish waters has already had its
effect. The French foreign office has
received a telegram from M. Bates ,
chancellor of the French legation at
Constantinople , announcing that the
sultan had sent him a message ac
cepting all the French claims , includ
ing the Lorendo claim.
The porte also teelgraphed to the
French minister of foreign affairs , M.
Delcasse , informing him that the Lo
rendo claim had been settled and that
the sultan had signed an irade accept
ing the figure fixed by France for the
payment of the claim. M. Delcasse pro
ceeded to the Elysee palace and to the
minister of the interior and consulted
with President Loubet , the premier , . M.
Waldeck-Rousseau , and the minister
of marine , M. De Lanessan. He after

will not renew the recent interference
with the diplomatic mail bags.

NICARAGUA ENDS EXISTING TREATIES ,
Washington , Nov.5. The government
of Nicarague has terminated the trea-
t yunder which the United States was
empowered' to construct an interoce-
anic canal across the territory of nic-
aragua. This action has been convey
ed to the state department by the Ni
caraguan minister for foreign affairs.
That officer declares that the renuncia
tion in no way affects the friendly re
lations between the two countries and
the Nicaraguan government desires the
conclusion of new treaties.
Besides the treaty of friendship.com-
merce and navigation of 1867 thus re
nounced , the same note conveys the
renunciation of the extradition treaty
of 1870 between the United States and
Nicaragua. Under the terms of the
renunciation the first named treaty ,
covering the right to construct and
guarantee a canal , the convention will
expire October 24 , 1902 , which is one
year from the date the notice was re
ceived at the state department. The
extradition treaty terminates May 24
next , as'provided in the convention.
The Nicaraguan minister's note con
veys absolutely no information as to
the motives which inspired the Nicar
aguan government to renounce these
two treaties , neither has Mr. Merry ,
United States minister to Nicaragua ,
thrown any light upon the subject. It
may be recalled as affecting the treaty
af 1867 that before submitting the Hay-
Pauncefote treaty before congress last
year Secretary Hay drew up a set of
protocols with the minister for Nicar-
igue and the minister for Colombia ,
thereby these officers bound their gov
ernments to negotiate treaties with
Lhe United States for the 'necessary
concessions under which to construct
ind control canals in the event that
congress should authorize the begin-
aing of such work.
Yukon River Still Open.

Saturday night. The weather was a
juite moderate when the steamer left

CALL ON NATION TO GIVE THANKS.
Washington , D. C. , Nov. 5. Presi
dent Roosevelt has Issued his first
Thanksgiving proclamation , as follows :
By the President of the United States
of America , Proclamation :
The season is nigh when * according
to the time-honored custom of our
people , the president appoints a spe
cial day as a special occasion for
praise and thanksgiving- God.
This Thanksgiving finds people still
bowed with sorrow for the death of a
great and good president. We mouru
President McKinley because we sc
loved and honored him ; and the man
ner of his death should awaken In the
breasts of our people a keen anxiety
for the country , and at the same time
a resolute purpose not to be driven by
any calamity from the path of strong ,
orderly , popular liberty , which as a
nation we have thus far safely trod.
Yet , in spite of this great disaster , it
is nevertheless true that no people on
earth have such abundant cause for
thanksgiving as we have. The past
year , in particular , has been one of
peace and plenty. We have prospered
in things material , and we have been
able to work for our own. uplifting in
things intellectual and spiritual.
Let us remember that as much has
been given us , much will be expected
from us ; and that true homage comes
from the heart , as well as from th
lips , and shows itself in deeds. Wi
can best prove our thankfulness to
the Almighty by the way in which , on
this earth and at this time , each o
us does his duty to his fellowmen.
Now , therefore , I , Theodore Roose
velt , president of the United States , do
hereby designate as a day of genera !
thanksgiving , Thursday , the 28th day
of the present November , and do rec
ommend that throughout the land the
people cease their wonted operations
and at their several homes and places
of worship reverently thank the Giver
of All Good for the countless blessings
of our national life.
GOVERNOR DURBIN GROWS RATHER HOT ,
Indianapolis , Ind. , Nov. 5. Governor
Durbin has addressed a letter to Gov
ernor Beckham of Kentucky formally
denying to honor requisitions for the
extradition of William S. Taylor , for
mer governor of that state , and Chas.
S. Finley , former secretary of state ,
who are charged with complicity in
the murder of Governor Goebel , and
for whose arrest and return for the
trial requisitions were recently issued.
Governor Durbin says that the cases
are based upon such a mass of self-
evident perjury that they reflect the
poisoned passions of a court and jury
and strengthen the bills of that court
and were these visitations honored it
would only be aiding the determination
of the prosecution to convict these men
without any reference to law , justice
He characterizes the case of Caleb
Powers as strikingly unjust and refers
to Judge Cantrill's refusal to grant a
change of venue as a demonstration
that a fair trial would not be given if
Taylor and Finley were surrendered to
the Kentucky authorities.
THE BRITONS STAND BY BULLER.
London , Nov. 5. Although Great
Britain is profoundly stirred by Sir
Redvers Buller's treatment .every min
isterial paper of influence rigorously
suppresses all mention of his name.
Bobs' popularity has been transferred
entirely to Buller , and now at places of
public entertainment mention of Bobs'
name is received in silence or with
hostile demonstrations , while Buller's
excites frantic enthusiasm.
Buller repudiates as a fabrication
the message alleged to have been he-
liographed by him to Sir George White
3f the Colenso defeat and published by
the editor of the National Review , who
has been Buller's most virulent enemy.
Buller says he did not direct White
o surrender , but counseled him if sur
render was inevitable to adopt cer-
ain measures to minimize its effect.
War Minister Broderick is being ap
pealed to from one end of the country
o the other to publish the official text
) f the heliogram , 'but the ministerial
jolicy , docilely followed by the minis-
erial press , is to crush Buller by
steadfastly ignoring him. Moreover ,
Broderick has refused permission to
> ublish the heliogram.

The meeting lasted four hours and

cutions in South Africa before the
Suropean public in an open letter. Dr.

British Arms Meet With Yet Another Dis
aster Near Bethel.
Relief Expedition Hurries to the Aid
of the Stricken Column But
Arrive too Late.
London , Nev. 5. Lord Kitchener has
reported to the war office a disaster
near Bethel , eastern Transvaal , in
which two guns were lost , several offi
cers killed or wounded , fifty-four men
were killed and 100 wounded.
The following is the text of Lord
Kitchener's dispatch :
"I have just heard of a severe attack
made on the rear guard of Colonel
Benson's column when , about twenty
miles northwest of Bethel , near Bro-
kenlaagte , during a thick mist.
"The strength of the enemy is re
ported to have been 1,000. They rushed
two guns with the rear guard , but it is
uncertain whether they were enabled
to remove them.
"I fear our casualties are heavy. Col
onel Benson was wounded. A reliev
ing column will reach him this morn
Later Lord Kitchener telegraphed as
"Colonel Barter , who marched from
the constabulary line yesterday , reach
ed Benson's column early this morning
unopposed. He reports that Colonel
Benson died of his wounds. "
Lord Kitchener then gives the names
of thirteen other officers who were
wounded , most of them severely , and
announces that fifty-four noncommis
sioned officers and men were killed
and 160 were wounded .adding that
four of the latter have , since died of
their wounds. The dispatch then says :
. "I assume that the two guns have
been recovered and the enemy has
withdrawn , but I have no further de
THIBUTE TO BENSON.
"I deeply regret the loss of Colonel
Benson and the other officers and men
who "fell with him. In Benson the ser
vice loses a most gallant and capable
officer , who invariably led his column
with marked success and judgment.
"The fighting was at very close quar
ters and maintained with determina
tion by both sides.
"The enemy suffered heavily , but I
have not yet received a reliable esti-
mate. The Boers retired east. "
Colonel Benson had been for some
time operating in the vicinity of Beth
el , which is northeast of Standerton.
He surpi-ised a Boer laager October 22
Three days later , according to Lord
Kitchener's report at the time , after a
long night march , the commandoes un
der Grobellar and Erasmus "heavily
attacked Benson's rear guard and flank
at Yzeivrakfontein , but were easily
driven away. " '
Whether this was the attack that re
sulted so disastrously , or whether the
Boers , who had been repulsed. . took
advantage of the mist to renew the .at
tack , is still unexplained. Lord Kitch
ener does not give the date of the
PRETTY IOWA GIRL COMMITS SUICIDE ,
Fort Dodge , la. , Nov. 5. Goaded to
the act by insanity which was hers
through heredity , pretty Millie Coo
per , formerly postmistress at Manson ,
placed the muzzle of a 22-caliber rifle
to hor mouth and fired the shot which
ended the life which had become a
burden to her.
The unhappy act was the result of
insanity , the first sign of which was
made manifest when she tried to end
her life by leaping from the Illinois
Central bridge in this city , over the
Des Moines river , some three weeks
ago.Since that time she has been sad
and depressed , seeing before her only
the asylum , to which it had been nec
essary to send her father and sister ,
or else the fate which her mother
sought , that of death by her own hand.
The tragedy occurred at the Moore
farm , seven miles north of Manson ,
where she had been taken in hopes
that the change would benefit her.
YOUTHFUL COPY OF PAT GROW ,
Great Falls , Mont. , Nov. 5. A 12-
yearold boy named Southwick kidnap
ed the 6-year-old son of G. W. Ryan ,
a prominent grocer of this city , , and
sent a note to the father demanding
fl,500 ransom , threatening to ram fine
pieces of glass into the child's eyes
and cut off his hands unless the de
mand was complied with.
Mr. Ryan notified the police , who-ar
rested young Southwick shortly after
the Ryan boy had arrived at his fath-
jr's store unharmed , having been re-
leusmed by Southwick.
Southwick confessed that he did the
Seed of his own volition , and that he
tiad no accomplices. He expressed no
repentance , and said : "I would have
lit the old manfor $8,000 if I thought I
le would have stood for it. "

Nevada and is the property of Mrs.

THE BOERS WIN A BI6 RAID.
Berlin , Nov. 6. The Boers under De-
wet have raided and cleaned out the
principal British remount station _ In
South Africa , dispatches from a trust
worthy quarter there report. The sta
tion Is within four hours of Capetown
by the railway. Six thousand horses
were kept there. The Boers took away
all the animals they needed , alter
killing the rest.
London , Nov. 5. War officials here
say they have no news of Dewet's
having raided the principal British re
mount ' station in South Africa and
capturing 6,000 relief horses , as is re
ported in a dispatch to Berlin. In army
quarters it is believed that the raid
occurred three weeks ago and that the
British reports of it were suppressed
for military reasons.The loss of those
6,000 horses will cripple Lord Kitchen
er's campaign for the entire season , as
they were "the only ones available
which had been acclimated , a process
which takes three months.
Nothing more dramatic could be con
ceived than the news of the tremen
dous disaster to Colonel Benson's col
umn near Brakenlaagte.Eastern Trans
vaal , coming upon London's masses as
they were gathered to welcome home
the duke and duchess of Cornwall and
York. Thanks to the egregrious stu
pidity of the War office , the effect of
this blow was enormously intensified
as it had purposely withheld the evil
tidings from the morn ing newspapers.
So it came with appalling freshness
upon the would-be rejoicing multitude.
Depression and dismay were observ
ed on all hands and , though the royal
travelers were cheered , it was cheer
ing of a perfunctory.half-hearted char
acter , entirely devoid of enthusiasm.
The effect was also heightened by the
false hopes which had been raised by
the recent speeches of Chamberlain and
WYOMING STOCK WILL WINTER WELL ,
Cheyenne , Wyo. ( Special. ) During
the latter part of October Prof. Pal
mer , in charge of the Wyoming sta
tion of the climate and crop service of
the department of agriculture , called
for reports on the condition of ranges
and stock from substations in all parts
of the state , and the answers received
indicate that the outlook for the win
ter is unusually favorable over nearly
all sections of Wyoming. The most
complaint from short range feeders
comes from the southwestern portion
of the state , where , it is said , the
ranges are overcrowded with sheep.
Grasshoppers destroyed some range in
the northern portion of Laramie and
Albany counties and southern Con
verse county , yet these ravages were
not as extensive as last year. The
amount of hay throughout the state
this fall is probabl yfar in excess of
that of any other fall in the history
of Wyoming. Unless an unusually
lang and severe winter prevails , stock
in Wyoming will not suffer this winter
for want of food.
CORONER WILL TRY TO FIX BLAME ,
St. Louis , Nov. 5. An inquiry was
begun today by Dr. R. M. Funkhouser ,
coroner , into the deaths which are
said to have been caused by tetanus
as the result of the administration , it
is claimed , of a dipththeretic anti-tox-
ine made and distributed by the board
of health. Coroner Funkhouser has
summoned all the prominent physi
cians of the city and will endeavor to
find out what infection there may have
been in the anti-toxine - administered
to the children who have died , how
the nfection occurred and to whose
fault , if any individual , this was due.
It is the intention of the coroner to
invetigate thoroughly all the circum
stances attending these deaths. "It is
too early now , " said he , "lor me to ex
press any opinion as to whom I con
sider responsible. In fact , I do not
know yet. But I''am doing and will
continue to do everything in my power
to find out. I am trying to ascertain
for certain whether it was the serum
taken from the horse August 24 or at
any other time that caused the un
fortunate developments. "
There are two questions which the
inquiry will try to settle : First , wheth-
2r the deaths were due to lockjaw ,
and , second , , if so , was the lockjaw
lue to infected serum ?
SOUTH DAX9TAHS CHARGE FRAUD ,
Geddes. S. D. , Nov. 5. Two insurance
agents operated in Charles Mix county
just east of Geddes the fore part of
the summer , and as a result between
twenty-five and thirty farmers are fig
uring on how to avoid the payment
af alleged notes against them ranging
in amounts from ? 20 to $100. The
igents said they represented a Kansas
2ity hail insurance company and told
the farmers that their rate would be
50 cents to $1.50 on the $100 , according
to the nature of the rick. The victims
ivere asked to sign a paper which
some supposed was "a receipt for their
policy and others thought was an obli
gation to the company for the amount
3f the premium at the rate agreed
ipon. About the first of September
he farmers received notice from head-
luarters in Kansaas City that the com-
jany held notes against them for sums
it the rate of $45 on the $100 of their
jolicies and later the notes were sent
o a bank in Geddes for collection. :

Specialists Wiio Examine Czoigosz Report
Tiieir Findings ,
They Say That the Slayer of William
McKinley Was Not Insane , But
He Was Misguided.
Buffalo , N. Y. , Nov. 5. Drs. Fowler
Crego and Putnam , the specialists who
were requested by District Attorney
Penney to examine into the mental
condition of Leon F. Czoigosz , the as
sassin of the president , have made
public their report , in which they state
as the result of the examinations of
Czoigosz , of the reports of his watch
ers and of his behavior in court , that
they have "concluded that he was
sane at the time he planned the move
ment , at the time he shot the presi
dent and at the time he was on trial. "
His first examination was but a few
hours after the commission of the
crime and while he was still unin
formed of the fate of his victim. Dur
ing the first three examinations Czoi
gosz answered questions unhesitating
ly. After that , however , he became
more cautious and less communica
tive. He had a common school edu
cation , the reports say , and read and
wrote well. During the first day's
examination he said he planned the
killing of the president three or four
days after he came to Buffalo. The
report thenrecites , in Czoigosz' own
words , the assassin's story of the mur
der of President McKinley.
ANARCHY CHANGES HIS LIFE.
The sanity of Czoigosz was held , the
report says , from the history of his
life , as it came from him. He had
been sober law-abid
, industrious and -
ing ; until he was 21 years of age , he
was , as others of his class , a believer
in the government of this country , and
in the religion of his fathers. After he
cast his first vote he made the ac
quaintance of anarchistic leaders who
invited him to their meetings. He
was a good listener and In a short
time he adopted their theories. He
was consistent In his adherence to an
archy. He did not believe in govern
ment , therefore he refused to vote. He
did not believe in marriage , because he
did not believe in law. He killed the
president because he was a ruler and
Czoigosz believed , as he was taught ,
that all rulers were tyrants ; that to
kill a ruler would benefit the people.
He refused a lawyer because he did
not believe in law , lawyers or courts.
WITHOUT MENTAL AFFECTIONS.
"We come to the conclusion that in
the holding of these views Czoigosz
was sane , because the opinions were
formed gradually under the influence
of anarchistic leaders and propagand
ists. In Czoigosz they found a willing
and intelligent tool ; one who had the
courage of his convictions , regardless
of personal consequences. The most
careful questioning failed to discover
any hallucinations of sight or of hear
ing ; he had received no special com
mand ; he did not believe he had been
especially chosen to do the deed. He
always spoke pf his motive for the
crime as duty ; he always referred to
the anarchists' belief that the killing
of rulers was a duty. He never claim
ed the idea of killing the president
was original with him , but the method
of accomplishing the purpose was his ,
and that he did it alone. His is not
a case of paranoia , because he' has
not systematized delusions reverting to
self , and because he is in exceptionally
good condition and has an unbroken
record of good health. His capacity for
labor has always been good and equal
to that of his fellows. These facts all
tend to prove that the man had an
unimpaired mind. He has false be
liefs , the result of false teaching , and
not the result o disease. He is net to
be classed as a de-generate , because
ive do not find the stigmata of de
generation. Physically he has not a
iiistory of cruelty or of perverted taste
ind habit. He is
the product of. an-
irchy , sane and responsible.
