DUBLIN. Nor. 29. (New York World
Csblegrsm Special Tele grain. ) Ireland Is
on the threshold of great events. If one
may trust the oumrmia portents. There
re those who believe that King- Edward,
who has always shown sympathy with the
Irish claims, has ueed his Influence to eon
Tin oe the Balfour government that a con
tinuance of the present system of governing
Ireland against instead of for the Irlih
people constitutes a grays menace to the
empire. When 8lr Anthony McDonnell was
recently appointed under secretary for Ire
land the king sent for Viceroy Dudley and
McDonnell and had a long conference with
them at Buckingham palace. Since then
on eTery public occasion In Ireland the
viceroy has spoken In the most conciliatory
terms to the people. There Is no doubt
that owing to the work of the United Irish
party In Parliament and the country the
Irish question is now entering the most
important phase since Gladstone adopted
Viceroy Dudley's recent utterances so
clearly point to a big more In the direction
of home rule that the London Times,
alarmed at the outlook, haa seTerely re
buked him, telling him that his duties are
ornamental and that he haa no business
to meddle with political questions. But of
course the viceroy would not make such
speeches except at the Instance of the gov
ernment he represents. One of the most
significant pronouncements he haa made
Heme Klarnlflrunt Utterances.
"I do not hold the view that a gTeat
empire should be run as a huge regiment
In which each nation should lose Its Indi
viduality and be brought under a common
system of discipline snd drill. Individual
characteristics form an essential portion
of a nation's life and sympathetic treat
ment would help them to enable her to
provide her own constitution and play her
own special part In the life of empire.
"It Is upon that principle that I ahall try,
o far a I can, to proceed during my term
.,of offlcebelieving flrmly.jihat any. .national, Lii
development lasting and healthy must
be spontaneoustnust be promoted with full
and earnest regard to the special condi
tions of the country which it effects."
Equally significant Is the fact that there
la a aerlous split in the landlord party.
Lord Dunraven and other leading land
lords, with Chief Secretary Wyndbam'a aid,
have arranged for a conference with their
tenants' representatives In spite of the de
nunciations of the duke of Abercorn, Lord
Londonderry and the Orange landlords, who
hitherto have boated the landlord party and
the Irlah government.
Clreamataaee Is Unfortunate.
At the hopeful moment a aomewhat un
fortunate question baa arisen to temporarily
cloud the prospect. The Irish Catholic
blahopa have intimated, through Archbishop
Walsh, thst they disapprove the action of
i the Irtah party In withdrawing from Parlla
ment during the autumn session, taking no
part In the debates on the ministerial edu
cation bill, which affects the CathoKc
schools in England. The reply of the Irish
party, through Ita chairman, John Redmond,
'The party supported thla bill from June
to the August adjournment In lta critical
stages, and the Mil, being perfectly safe
In the autumn session, the party withdrew
to Ireland to carry on the work of tha
United Irish league In order to resist co
ercion and force the government to bring
forward Its big land bill at the next aesslon.
The Catholic schools In England have there
fore Buffered nothing through the party's
absence, aa they could have gained nothing
by Us presence at Westminster, while the
party'a fight against coercion In Ireland
would necessarily have been less effective It
It had attended Parliament, giving superflu
ous suport to a ministry which had grossly
abused Ha powers In an attempt to break
down the league organisation In Ireland,
rarees Wyndhuua ta Aet.
The effect of the policy of the Irish party
haa been to cause Chief Secretary Wynd
ham to promise a land bill for the next
session which he says will settle the land
question once for all, while the Indomitable
stand made against coercion throughout
the eountry where the league members, un
deterred by heavy sentences ' aa common
crlmlnala for making public speeches, are
still holding meetings, haa resulted ta con
vlnclng Wyndham that coercion la uaeless
and la compelling him to undertake to r
form the administration at Dublin castle.
The action of the Irlah Catholic biahopa
la regarded with regret and pain by the
Irish party, whose members, however,
recognise that ths bishops in their eccle
siastical rspaclty could not refuse Cardinal
Vaughan's appeal to bring pressure to bear
on tha Irlah party to support tha educa
tion bill. But the Irish party knowa that
the blahopa will give no support to the
half dosen discredited factionlsta led by
Mr. Healy, who, with tha aid of the English
unionist press, Is using ths bishops!' In
tervention to hamper the party la Its fight
Mast Kat Reins Presaare.
Mr. Redmond and the Irish party know
that if the pressure of the lergje oa the
Irish government is relaxed now the value
of next year'a land bill a 111 be Icasuaed
proportionately and the Dublin caj'le re
forms now admitted to be necessary would
be dropped. At the same time, in defer
ence to the wishes of the bl .hoss. If, when
the education bill cornea back to the Rome
of Commons from the House of Lords, ths
Irish members see any chance of Improving
It la respect to the Catholic schools, they
will be summoned back to Wrsintns'.er by
Mr. Redmond to press amendments.
The talk about foriulng a new Irish party
la the merest moonshine. The present
party la absolutely solid. Even Mr. Healy
haa disclaimed any such project, knowing
that It would result la a ridiculous fiasco. .

BERLIN. Not. 29. (New York World
Cablegram Special Telegram.) Frederick
Alfred Krupp'e death in the best period of
his life, and with the burden of a shocking
accusation weighing upon him which he
hsd no chsnce to answer. Is the subject
of universal comment here. That accusa
tion haa been thoroughly disproved by the
official Investigation of the Italian govern
ment. In whose territory the scandal orig
inated, and la shown to have been the work
of malignant or petty revenge. But the
vindication came too late, the slander had
had deadlier effect thsn ever the cruel
slanderer could have desired.
The Intimate of kings and emperors, a
host of innumerable princes and statesmen,
lord of 50,000 subjects who humbly did his
will, and the possessor of an arfhual In
come of more than $10,000,000 according to
the eatlmate of persons In a position to
know, Krupp passed away last Saturday
morning In a mysterious manner, the last
of his dynasty.
That dynasty waa not a long one. It
began with Frederick's grandfather, Fred
erick Krupp, a hard, tough man, unlettered,
with a vile temper, auspicious, narrow
minded, covetous and saving of bla marka.
He hoarded with all the avidity of a miser
and died In the early 40' s, leaving to his
son Alfred his fortune and the plodding,
persistent part of bis nature.
Alfred waa a genlua In hla way. Ha be
gan life with two workmen and left life
with 40,000 workmen hammering and sweat
ing in his works, turning his iron Into steel
and hi steel Into gold.
A man of grim humor waa Alfred. He
went to London at the time of the World'a
fair of 1851. There he saw a block of steel
of 600 pounds. The block waa engraved
"Monster Block" In staring capitals. He
went home to Eaaen, cast a block weighing
4,000 pounds and in small, almost Illegible
letters he wrote on It "little block."
Alfred Merer Rested.
Alfred's waa a life of uninterrupted labor.
Hia experiments were not. alwaya auccsaa
tut,, and -the dlMppoiatmoats- he -suffered
would have broken an ordinary man's heart.
But he tolled on and after years of trial
he succeeded In casting huge blocks of the
finest steel. He rapidly Improved on the
taulta of hia ateel and the fame of hla
inventions began to be noised abroad. He
borrowed 112,500 from one bank, $25,000
from another, and begun to build forges.
He never rested.'
One invention and discovery after an
other rewarded his labors until almost by
accident he discovered how to make ateel
wheela without a seam. He waa over
whelmed with orders. Three yeara after
borrowing the 237,500 he repaid It and bad
erected buildings and furnacea valued at
$250,000. But, not satisfied with victories
achieved in Inventions which were msde
for peace and civilisation, he turned his
attention to implements of war. German
cannon were bursting on field paradea and
In practice, while In war they alaughtered
nearly aa many behind aa In front. He
held a council with able englneera whom
he had gathered around him and the result
waa that Alfred Krupp began casting can
non At first the military autborltlea
fought ahy of bis cannon, but when he told
Von Moltke that If he could burst one of
his cannon he would pay 1,000,000 marka
($250,000) to charity, aa experiment with
the new weapons waa made and the result
made Krupp famous throughout the world.
The victories at Konlggrats, Gravelotte,
Worth and Sedan were aa much owing to
the genlua of Alfred Krupp aa to the
atrategy of Von Moltke or the bravery of
the Red Prince'a Infantry. Not only Ger
many but foreign countrlea began to pour
In ordera. Krupp bought a tract of eountry
ten mllea long on which to carry on hia
battle between cannon and armor platea.
Armor platea alwaya won and up went
fresh sheds and fresh furnacea for the
manufacture of armor platea. Essen grew
black and sooty. Thousands of hard-handed
laborera began to center In the town.
When Alfred Krupp began, with two work
men, Essen numbered 10,000 inhabttanta.
When he died he left It a city of nearly

annual Income of $1,250,000.
Whatever else Frederick may have been,
he had a shrewd eye for able men. One
after another he collected around him men
of striking ability as managers. He did not
care what be paid them ao long as they did
their work efficiently.
At the instigation of the present kaiser,
Frederick Krupp turned his attention more

to take William Glasco, the assailant of
Mary Maloney, from the county Jail, but

According to the bacteriologists of the

The mortality from It Is not high, but It
Is extremely contagious. It Is due largely

BUFFALO. N. Y., Not. 29. The order of
the secretary of agriculture forbidding the
export of live stock from New England

of the export buyers at the local stock
yarda out of tha market temporarily. About
1,000 head of cattle and sheep which ar-
Boston, have been stopped and placed on
ths local market or shipped to New York
and Philadelphia. The shipments from
Canada have also Increased and the large
supply of stock thrown on the local mar
ket has caused a slight decline In prices.
Dr. Salmon Assumes Command.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 29. In pursuance
of the purpose of the Agricultural depart
ment to spare no effort for the experi
mentation of the foot and mouth diaease,
Dr. 8almon, chief of ths Bureau of Animal
Industry, decided today to go to Boston
and take charge of the campaign In per
son. He will leave on Monday and re
main at long aa necessary.
Discussing the question todsy. Dr. Salmon
said he had received due notice of the
action of Great Britain In quarantining
the New England porta, but that the de
partment's decision had been Influenced
more by a desire to protect thla country
than by any fear of losing export trade. He
added that the action of Great Britain could
not be construed as at all hostile, the con
ditions apparently Justifying It. The opin
ion waa also expressed that ao long as
there waa no general quarantine . the ex
porta would not be materially affected, the
expectation being that the trade that has
left New England ports will find outlet
through other cities. Figures showing the
extent of Boston's export trade In Amer
ican live stock place the value of the busi
ness for laat year at about $8,000,000. The
cattle ahlpmenta numbered 78,967 bead, the
sheep 70,000 and the horses 1,552. In addi
tion more than 30,000 Canadian cattle and
1,000 Canadian abeep were shipped from
that port. There were also quoted exten
sive shipments from Portland.

effect, but It Is said assurances have been
received from the eompany'a bead offices
In England that the cargo can bs landed
There were many Inqulrlea today at the
offices of Dr. Austin Paters, chief of the
State Cattle bureau, regarding the situa
tion, aome of them relative to the exporta
tion of cattle from New York to Masaa
ehusetts. Dr. Peters said he would grant
permlta for such exportation.
This statement, which seemed to indicate
that western cattle might be shipped
through Boston, has given ths steamship
people a ray of hope, but If cattle cannot
be ahipped from this port, the agents of
aome of the transatlantic lines may aend
their steamers to St. John or Halifax.

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON. Nov. 29. (Special Tele
gram.) Mr. Rosewater had an extended
conference with the president today over
matters affecting western .'nc:eia nd tho
question of occupying the public domain by
the cattle barons. Incident to ths confer
ence the subject of a change in agent at
the Omaha and Winnebago agency was
taken up and discussed in all lta bearings.
In the course of the conversation the presi
dent Intimated to Mr. Rosewater that he
would like to appoint a successor to tha
present agent from a section wholly aepa
rated from the Omaha and Winnebago
reservation in order to avoid the trouble
heretofore experienced by reason of the In
timate relatione between the present agent
and the land speculators and schemers who
prey upon the Indians.
Do Not Apprerlnte Leniency.
Regarding the cattle barona and ranch
men who have fenced the public domalr
the president declared to Mr. Rosewatei
that after a full hearing of the claima and
in consideration of the hardships that
j might grow out ot tho rigid enforcements
of the law he had given the cattlemen a
year of respite to make ready for the In
evitable change. But according to tb
president the cattlemen did not seem te
appreciate his friendly action and sought
to circumvent the law by devious methods.
Now that the time of trace had elapsed
he felt In duty bound to enforce the law
as It now stands on the statute booka In
reference to the fencing of the public do
main without express permission. The
president intimated to Mr. Rosewater that
he made some recommendations to con
gress in his forthcoming message touching
upon the subject ot tho Illegal fencing of
public lands and had suggested such mod
ification of the law as seemed warranted
in the light ot experience. .
Millnrd is Satisfied.
Senator Millard and daughter arrived In
Washington from New York thia morning.
The senator was in excellent spirits and
thought . Nebraska had done nobly tn ths
last election. He expressed it as his opin
ion that Nebraska waa now a perfectly safe
republican atate, as he firmly believed were
the states around Nebraska. "We are learn
ing wisdom," said the aenator, "from exist
ing conditions. We are being benefited In
a hundred ways by the knowledge we Have,
and my judgment la that we ought to let
well enough alone, especially when It cornea
to any radical change' in the tariff,"
Uraalnn on Forest Reserves,
The secretary of the interior today Issued
regulations governing grazing on the forest
reserves in Wyoming for 1903. Sheep will
be excluded from all reserves, excepting on
tho Big Horn, where north ot the 13th
parallel 25.000 head will be permitted to
graze between June 1 and September 20.
Cattle grazing will be permitted aa fol
lows: Teton reserve, 15,000 head; Yellow
atone reserve, 10.000 head; Big Horn re
serve, 25,000 head, between May 15 and Oc
tober 15. Tho superintendent of reserves Is
authorized to direct the removal of atock
from the reserves If It is found that gras-
log Is damaging the forest growth.
Stntehood Hills First.
With the arrival ot senatora and repre
sentatives, there is increasing Interest in
the omnibus ststehood bill, the first great
measure to come before the senate. The,
bouae bill providing for the admission of
Oklahoma, New Mexico and Arizona la
pending In the senate as a special order, for
December 10. Plainly put the bill provides
statehood for three territories, but In the
case of Oklahoma It is provided that la
adopting Its construction Oklahoma ahall
remit to congress the right to add to lta
territory any part or all of Indian Territory
If it should hereafter be the wish of con-
gress to so dispose ot Indian Territory,
rather than admit it aa a separate atate.
Up to this moment, senate opinion with
regard to statehood for those territories
Is badly mixed. The democratic senators
are ail in favor of statehood for the thret
territories, the qualifications being ibat
some are In favor ot the admission of Okla
homa as a separate atate, leaving Indian
Territory to come in later as another atate,
while other democrats favor bringing In
Oklahoma and Indian Territory as one
state. Ths republican senators are still
more mixed. Some, like Quay and Elklns,
favor the admission of the three territories
just as tbe house bill provldea. Some favor
tbe house bill amended ao aa to exclude
New Mexico and Arizona. Some favor Okla
homa aa a separate state, ;avlng Indian
Territory to the future, while atlll otbera
favor Oklahoma and Indian Territory aa a
single atate. Of course there are aenators
who are oppoaed to the admission of any
of the territories. Plainly the greatest
obstacle to any sort ot statehood bill Is
ribs variety of vlewa which exist among
io scuiur. rur lots very reason n is
safe to say that atatehood for the latest
applicants for admission rosy possibly fall.
Even the differences between the senatora
who are favorable to atatehood for the
three territories may prove potent enough
to defeat the whole measure, to say noth
ing of the vlewa of those who favor atate
hood for Oklahoma alone or of those who
oppose any sort of statehood.
