today when they opened their arms to Lord
Kitchener. He reciprocated the welcome
with the grim satisfaction characteristic of
the man. He accepted the addreses ana
the compliments of royalties and the wild
applause of the crowds with a suspicion of
tolerance in his smile. He went about
the hard day'a work as If he were per

humored determination. The reception ac

The prince of Wales greeted him with

Lord Kitchener saluted him with the same

Crowded streets to Hartley hall, where he
received an address from the chamber of
commerce, expressing admiration of the
generalship, resource and skill which he
bad shown in South Africa, and hoping
. that the peace which he had secured would
be lasting and mark the beginning of a
ttew epoch of prosperity and commercial
development throughout the empire.
In reply Lord Kltcheucr declared that
whatever auccess bad been achieved was

Bhertdan. lately of the Irleh constabulary,
but now living In Boston, was the subject
of the most exciting debste of the sesson
In the House of Commons Thursdsy night.
The Irish 'nationalists made in their
speeches the charges: "That when sta-
tloned In County Clare some years ago,
Sheridan, conspiring with several of his
siibaidlnate constables, committed a aeries
of agrarian Crimea for which they arrested
snd convicted by perjured testimony Inno
cent men In that locality connected with
the Irish nationalist organization; that
those conviction were obtained through
Juries from which every Catholic and na
tionalist was excluded by the government
prosecuting lawyers; that in one ease alone
Sheridan got four men convicted of crimes
it has since been absolutely proved he com
mitted himself; that those four men were
eentenced to three years penal servitude
snd one actually died In prison of a broken
heart; that about a year ago John Dillon
got Information which enabled him to com
pel Irish Secretary Wyndham to Inquire
Into the charges against Sheridan, Wynd
ham promising that If tbe charges were
found to be true, full punishment should
bo meted out to all concerned; that Wynd
barn's Inquiry fully established the guilt of
Sheridan and his police accomplices, but
fiber dan threatened that If the government
dared to punish him he would expose the
superiors who bad connived at bis deeds
In order to create a prejudice against the
Irish nationalist organization ; that there
fore Sheridan was not only allowed to
leave the country, but got a handsome
contribution from the government secret
service fund to start him on a freah ca
reer In the United States.
These were the charges made out egainst
the government of Ireland by the Irish
party, and every allegation, except that
respecting the secret service money, was
admitted by Wyndham and hla attorney
general. The Irish party tntenda to renew
the subject later, pressing tor a public
Inquiry Into the whole system of subsidized
police and criminality In Ireland.

LONDON, July 12. (New Tork World Ca

certainly will be crowned August 8 unless
something unforeseen prevents. Saturday
was choson by the king because It being
a half-holiday the least possible disturb
ance to business will be caused, and, being
followed by Sunday, the festivities will be
confined to one day. The secret of this
hurrying on of the -ceremony lies In the
ktng'a feverish anxiety to get crowned at
the earliest possible moment, lest some fur
ther obstacle should arise. It Is a sub
Ject on wblch be Is a prey to superstitious
fears. His doctors resisted aa long as they
could, but finally assented to tbe fixing
of a -date for the ceremony, les oppo

Queen Alexandra's position would be af
fected if she were widowed without being
crowned. That fact alao is weighing upon
the king. Atthough the most positive and
explicit statements have been Issued by
the authority of the king's doctors that no
recurrence of the present trouble ie feared
It Is declared that he will always be some

have changed him from a fresh, well set

English women are winning laurels the
tiller, and proving such ardent sailors that
the yachtsmen of Great Britain must soon
dispute pre-eminence with the most beau
tiful array of rivals that ever set wind
and wave at defiance. It Is by no means
the ugly ducklings of the coronated aris
tocracy that have developed this ambition,
but some of the loveliest in the list of
court beauties, an Indication at least that
vanity haa not superseded love of sport In
the mind of womankind.
Among the yachtswomen the marchioness
of Londonderry takes the lead. Though
ths mother of a married daughter, she Is
scarcely less handsome than when as Lady
Theresa Talbot, eldest daughter of the earl
of Shrewsbury, she was led to the altar
in 1876. Her splendid, regular features,
albeit characterized by the arrogance of
which Lady Londonderry has throughout
her life been thought to have overmuch,
are yet the classical Ideal. While her
husband served aa lord lieutenant of Ire
land, the marchioness tailed to realize tho
wide popularity a,mong her people that
her predecessor bad achieved among the
warm-hearted Irish, but her devotion as a
wife and mother. In contrast to the negli
gence of young society women in general,
won ber a deep respect and regard. Her
daughter, Lady Helen Stewart, recently
became the bride of Lord Stavordal. The
craft which Lady, Londonderry captalne
haa been called the finest small yacht In
the world, named The Metuenda to be
feared the flrat word of the Londonderry
motto Metuenda Corolla Draconic, "To Be
Feared la the Crest of the Dragon." It
la built entirely of cedar and mahogany.
The metal work Is of silver plated alum
inum, with gold beading and scroll work.
The sella are of silk, and the yacht baa
been rendered unslnkable by metal cases
at the bow and stern. She herself has

elsewhere and Is regarded aa aa expert

Coontess a Good Angrier.
The countess of Annesleyhaslnade - a
reputation aa an angler as well as a yachts
woman. She accompanies her husband on
fishing expeditions and frequently boasts
the biggest "catch." Her charming face
with lta bright dark eyee and Its expression
of gracious sweetness Is, perhaps, better
known than any of the contemporary beau
ties. Greatly her husband's Junior, she
became bis second wife when he bad
reached tbe ripe age of 81. She la the
granddaughter of Colonel Markham, for
many yeare one of tho chief supporters
of Melton Mowbray. In addition to the

(Copyright, 1902, by Press Publishing Co.)
PARIS, July 12. (New York World Cable
gramSpecial Telegram.) King Alphonso
haa captured the' hearts of bis subjects.
According to the Madrid correspondent of
Figaro, this 18-year-old monarch has al
ready shown himself of so firm a character,
as well as quick and aupple of mind, that
he has kept his ministers In constant won
derment aa to what he would do next.
Some days ago'the king, who arises very
early, quitted the palace at 8 o'clock.
Mounted on horseback and accompanied
by the prince of Asturlas, he presented
himself without preliminary announoemtnt
at the artillery barracks. He bad the
trumpets and bugles sounded, the pieces
mounted, the regiment formed and setting
out at its head made a promenade on the
streets, passing in front of the windowe of
the royal palace, where tbe queen mother
was awaiting hia arrival.
This surprise was hot quite agreeable, It
la said, for the chief of the regiment and
the minister of war have been puzzled to
decide whether the king haa a right to order
out a regiment without the knowledge of
tbe captain general or the war minister.
Military etiquette has no part in the pub
lic's consideration, however,, and all Mad
rid voted the boy king a preux chevalier.
At the councils of his ministers Alphonso
speaka very well,, and always has an opin

ready risen, left with his aide-de-camp,
General Harcourt, in a carriage drawn by
tour horses, for the scene of the disaster.
He visited the rulne and the wounded and
gave 60 franca to each person. Having In
formed himself of tbe whole matter, be re
turned to tbe palace. At 9 o'clock, when
the council met, one of the ministers began
to explain tbe catastrophe.
"Yes, yes," interrupted the king, "I
know. I bave Just come from It," recount
ing the horror to its least detail.

along the northern Pacific tracks. A strong
posse le leading from Auburn. He is
Sheriff Cudlhee says there Is no ques
tion that Tracy is nearly used up. The
sheriff believes the chase is nearlng an
end. He says the utmost vigilance will
be used and It will be Impossible for tbe
outlaw to get out of King county on any

SERIOUS PROBLEM AT NORTH PLATTE
More Men at Work at Grand Island
Than Before Strike aad Company
Proposea to Fnrthrr Ia.
More than four weeks bave elapsed
elncs the strike tn the Union Taclflc shops
was declared and each elde ie apparently
aa determined as If the atruggle bad Just
begun. The strikers are basing their
claims of success upon the assertion that
none of their men, or at least a very in
significant number, has gone back Into the
company'e employ, while the officials of
the railroad produce an array of stern
figures to show that they have a com
paratively good-sired force, sufficient, they
claim, to meet the demands made upon
the shops at this season of the year.
Each aide expresses absolute confidence
In the ultimate outcome of the fight. The
officials of the road Insist that their mo
tive power has not been Injured or Jeop
ardized by this strike and they are pro
ceeding with their affairs, they affirm. In
different to the strikers. The latter make
persUttent claims that they bave suc
ceeded In seriously affecting the motive
power of the railroad and crippled Ite
shop facilities to such an extent that the
company will be forced within a ehort
time to adopt some different policy.
Company Prodacea Figures.
To demonstrate tbe actual conditions, an
official of the Union Pacific Saturday pro
duced some figures taken from Lis dally
report sheet, which shbw the etstus in
each shop on the system. Beginning with
Omaha, the schedule shows that in the local
shops, Council Bluffs and tbe outround
bouses the company now has In lta em
play a total of 675 men, which Is about
200 less than the normal force In these
places. In the Omaha shops alone there
are said to be 610 men In all departmenta.
About 65 per cent of the original number
of machinists in the Omaha shops are at
work, according to tbe reporte of the
company. Thla shows, therefore, that the
number of all employed is well propor
tioned as to the different crafts. Of course
the company does not claim that this num
ber is made up of old employes, but of
those who have been Imported and thos
who did not strike.
The number of machinists now at work
In the Omaha shops U, acaardlhg trt ths
company's statement, within thret or tour
of the original number.
At Armatrong tbe force la aald to bo al
most of normal site. A large number of
etrlkere, it Is said, bave returned to work
and the rest of the placee bave been Oiled
by outside men. Tbe company baa ceased
employing men there.
At Cheyenne the total numbsr of shop
men now in active service Is 344. Of this
number twenty-two are skilled machinists
and about half the normal blacksmith foree
Is at work. These reporte from tbe three
largest shops on the system show that tbe
company haa enough man at work to make
a fair showing.
At Other Polata oa Line.
Normal sized forcea are said to be at
work at Ellis, Junction City and 8allna,
Kan. Denver reports three-fourthe of a
force at work In the bollermakera and ma
chinists' departmenta and full forces la
other departments of the shops. At Green
River a full force Is employed and at
Evanston, where the men were eo elow to
strike,, seventeen machinists are reported
at work, as against seven before, and
seven boilermakers aa against five be
North Platte bae . preeented the moat
serious problem tbe company bas yet to
contend with. Tbe men there were in a
quandry for aome time and finally striking
they are among the most determined of
any on the system. Notwithstanding these
facts the officials declare that a fore of
176 men is employed In these shops, a
fact which they say will suprlse tbe strik
ers. The original number employed at
North Platte waa 200. Eleven of those
now at work there are machinists, twenty-.
four machinist's' helpers and sixteen men
are engaged in tbe boiler shops, though no
real boilermakers ars at work. In tbe
remainder of the departmenta tbe force
Is st' a normal also.
The officials regard North Platte aa their
weakeat point and yet one of them aaid
Saturday that it would be tbe eaateet te
handle ae soon aa they deolded to take
hold of It in earnest
Grand Island Fores Increased.
The reports from Orand Island show a
larger force of men at work than before
the strike. As was stated In The Bee tome
daya ago, this shop's fores le to be en
larged still more and It la aald to be tbe
Intention of the eompany to Increase tbe
force to three tlmee ite original else.
Asked if those men now at work la tbe
various shops were on the piecework sys
tem an official of ths road Saturday re
plied: "No air, they are getting exactly the
wagea paid in tbe abopa when the etrlke
begun. No reductlone bave been made and
no piecework baa been Introduced. We did
not Intend to introduce piecework at once
anyway, and of couise, we could not do
such 'a thing with new men even if we
wished. There ie a great deal of idle talk
about this piecework matter. This com
pany could not properly Introduce piece
work all over lta system within less thaa
Ths company does not pretend to eay
that but a very email proportion of those
men now in its employ are former strikers,
but officials maintain that ths most of them
are competent men. It la fact, tbey admit,
that In tbe very large majority of cases ths
strikers have not returned to work. The
officials profess not to be worrying over
whether ths strikers return to work. Tbey
say they wanted to glvs their old men a
chance to resume tbelr positions and since
tbey have refused to do ao, most of them.
It la not ths part of tbe company to loss
sleep over the matter. It eontlnuea to
bring in new men and will keep on in thle
line, tbe officials eay. Thirty-seven non
union mea wers imported Into the Omaha
shops Saturday from Chicago and more
will be brought later.
