CARLSBAD. Sept. :?.-'Nw York World
Cablegram Special Telegram.) Lord Mil
Hit left for England today on an urgent
summon from King Kdwnrd to confer
with Prime Minister Ralfour regarding ac
cepting the Rrltlsh secretaryship for the
colonies In succession to Joseph C'him
berlntn. The World correspondent ran state on
tli highest authority that Lord Mllner
)ia no d"slre to enter th cabinet and that
be has already informed Premier Balfour
that his only useful position In public life
1. In South Africa.
The whole British government situation
revolves around I,crd Mllner, whose al
ready high position ha auddenly become
one of cardinal Importance.
While all ' this fume as being- thrust
upon hlra he has been staying quietly at
Carlibud. going through the so-called cure
nd going to bed at 9 o'clock every night,
lie. left Bouth Africa two months ago and
came direct to Carlsbad without passing
through London. He la seeking a little
rest and restoration, having a bad liver
after three years of war work In over
throwing the Boer government. The fash
ionable season had ended when Lord Mll
ner arrived. Not a dozen people were
staying at Koenlg' villa, the hotel where
be took tip hia residence. In the most
democratic, free manner he formed the
acquaintance of the few belated gueats.
The arrival of the king's messenger with
an urgent request to enter the cabinet
earned like an Interruption from the out
side world. It disturbed the routine of
Ills simple life among the people, who
tacitly avoided reference to politics, but
the messenger departed and the next day
Ixrd Mllner resumed his aoclal Intercourse.
He had breakfaat with a little American
boy of 7, who shared with this ruler of
Bouth Africa some fish he had caught the
Balfoar Meeds Irish.
IjONDOX, Sept. IT. Addressing a demon
stration at Newcastle, county Down, to
day, John Redmond, the Irish leader, said
I' that tho Irish land bill having been secured
the next session must be devoted to the
labor' question." The political situation to
day was a strange one, he auld, and If Pre
mier , Balfour desired to retain office the
Irish party would hold the power of life
find death In Its hands and would use that
power without compunction to forward the
Interests of the Irish cause.
ROASTS THE MODERN CHURCH

DETROIT, Sept. 27. The convention of
the Disciples of the Ixsrd was opened
t')day. The day waa devoted to religious
exercises and the principal speaker was
Kvangellat John Smith of Cleveland, who
claims he Is called to preach the goapel
of Christ by God Himself. He made a bitter
attack on all forms of worldly amusement,
which he characterised as being the works
of the devil. In his opinion it Is for worldly
amusement only that the majority of people
attend, church. The church of today Is
nothing more than a circuit of the theater,
he declared, while the choirs who sing the
beautiful and sacred hymns In many cases
are going straight to perdition. They are
paid large salaries to stand up and prosti
tute the music of God. Preaching With
most of the high priced ministers, lie con
tinued, Is only a bsse proposition, as they
are hired for the amusement they can give
to their congregations. Real Christianity
haa gone glimmering, he said, and the form
of worship In many of the churches Is but
a hollow mockery.

possible utility of balloons In time of war.
Both of these efforts were unsuccessful,
the balloons being driven back to the north

LAREDO, Tex., Sept. 27. The yellow
fever seems to be on the Increase in this
city despite the rigorous efforts that are
being taken to stamp out the scourge. Two j
ucnins aim iweive new casts were reported
at the close of the day.
Dr. Oulteras, In 111 house to house canvas
today, saw many cases of lever, and at ihe
conclusion of his day examination made
the announcement that twelve of the cases
were genuine yellow fever. The daughter
of the Mexican boiler maker, Juan Con-
tinas, who died of the fever recently, died
late this afternoon and another Mexican
woman also died of the disease.
This city now presents a dead appearance,
all those, who could get away having de
parted for points north In the state of
Thm and for points south. It Is estimated
by the authorities that nearly 4.UO0 people
have fled from here since the beginning of
the yellow fever scare. The city Is now
quarantined In . all direction In the
state and no person can get beyond the
limits of Webb county, as other Texas
counties have established a shotgun quar-
ntine and are turning all back who are
endeavoring to get away in coaches, bug
gies and carts. The quarantine applies to
all persons, freight, buggage, express, mall
or other matter originating in the city of
Laredo or points south, the only persons
having authority to leave the corporation
limits being the health officers of the state
of Texas and of tho United States.
Tho work of placing tho olty In a thor
oughly sanitary condition Is being carried
on under the direct supervision of Dr. Oul
teras and a corps of expert assstants.
The situation In Nuevo I.aredo Is un
changed, no death or new case having oc
curred as far as can be learned. Dr. Mari
ano Trevlno. a Mexican government yellow
fever expert. Is in charge. He declares that
within eight days ho will have stamped out
the fever. The Mexican custom house au
thorities have temporarily removed to Lam
pasas, where all Incoming baggage and
freight over the National railway ex
amined, thus permitting trains through to
Laredo without stopping at Nuevo Laredo.

KANSAS CITY. Sept. 27. Samuel Parks,
delegate to the International Association
of Bridge and Structural Iron Workers'
union from local union No. 2 of New York
City, said tonight that harmony would pre
vail during the remainder of the sessions
of the convention, which will resume Its
sessions tomorrow. The refusal of the
convention to grant a charter to the new
union, known as the "New York House
smiths' union." which sent four delegates
to this convention, Delegate Parks says,
is a closed incident. These tour delegates.
In h statement Issued to the convention,
In' refusing a charter to the New York
Housesmiths' union you have virtually In
dorsed all that Is bud and rotten In trade
unionism. By your action you have lost
to your body the greatest city in the I'nlted
States. At present you refuse to recognise
an organization which will In tbe end be
tho cnmlnant power In the iron trades In
N-w York. - --,..-! . ,
The statement attack Samuel Park and
Keep that man In and In three months
there will be nothing left of No. 2, and
tho International union would be down and
out as far as New York Is concerned.
Now. we wili say that any organisation
that relies upon lirute force to maintain
Its supremacy In the end will end in dis
order and disruption.
Delegate Parks said tonight:
I am cpioted In New York us saying thst
I am going to raise all kinds of trouble
upon my return there. Present conditions
do not exactly call for strikes. I do not
intend to call any strike among the siruc
tunil Iron workers engaged on buildings
!n New York, but If there is not a change
S'.t the East river bridge I shall start yome
liiing there in tbout. two weeks.

Talk of a Split.

opposed to him esscrt that hi election will
mean a reign of bosslsm by 8amuel Parks
and that they will withdraw from the In
ternational union if It come to that. Don
nelly tonight make the positive claim that
he will be elected, asserting that he ha
nfty-livo vote out of 102 pledged to him.
A caucus, attended by Park and hi fol
lowers, is in iesaiou tonight and it Is said
that a plan to expedite tho business of th
convention to an early adjournment is
under consldera: Ion.
Parks and hi lollowers profess to believe
that President Buchanan and hi support

parent organization that they may reorgan
ise tho convention before a new set of
officer is elected. Park want to finish
the business of the convention, including
the election of officers, before Buchnan
can accomplish the disruption.
The New York delegation decided to turn
down Secretary-Treasurer Johnston for P.
J. Dttlton of Chicago. Johnston is a mem
ber of lxical No. 2 and a Park sup

1 am a candidate for the democratic nom

ment is made with a full knowledge of the
uncertainties of the democratic situation.
I desire to make It plain that 1 am willing

small their number, who believe the dem

party's recent loss of liM-ai prcstlpn. The
democracy has not been hen (en on these la

I From n Staff Correspondent
WASHINGTON, Sept. ?7.-iSpeclal )-The
members of congress v ho ure now In Wash
ington predict that the session of th
coming congress will be full of national
politics. The extra session which will begin
November !i will be followed without nn
Ir.tcrlm by the regular session which will
continue until aell into the winter. After
its adjournment mill come the national con
ventions and the presidential cnmpalgn.
The democrats, who have not decided upon
party Issues tor that campaJgn, ere ex
pected to take advantage of every oppor
tunity in house and senate to emphasis
their position on public questions and to
put the republicans on the defense in de
hates. Tho rift of the discussion ammu
members here Indicate that the democrats
are preparing to make all the political
capital possible out ot th scandals in the
Postoiflee department and In the Indian
Territory for use In a campaign of reform.
Despite the fact that the investigation
under the direction of Fourth Assistant
Postmaster General Brlstow has resulted
In the removal and indictment of a snore
of grafters and In reform In every bureau
of the Postofflce department, the democrat
are demanding thst an investigation be
conducted by congress and It is Velleved
that one of tho first measure Introduced
when congress gets down to work will be
one providing for the appointment of :
congressional committee to take up the
irregularities in the postal service so that
congress can get a special report on the
alleged rrlbcry and corruption In the Post
Although It Is generally recognised that
no additional facts will be disclosed by such
Inquiry, the republicans are expected to
fall In with the plans of the dem.-erats and
vote for an Investigation. Representative
Cannon, who will be speaker of the house,
haa Intimated that the majority would not
place any obstacle in th way of a con
gressional Investigation and It Is possible
that tbe republicans may anticipate the
democratic program by Introducing meas
ure which will result In an investigation
under republican auspice and thus deprive
the democrats of an opportunity iu" gq be
fore the country In the presidential cam-,
palgn with the assertion that republican
opposition prevented them from dlsclolng
the most damaging facts In the postal Ir
regularities. If this policy is. pursued the
most the democrats cab hope ta get out
of the agitation of tho poatal scandals In
congress will be the somewhat doubtful
political advantage that will result from
partisan speeches containing crltlciBm- of
the administration of Pref'.dent Roosevelt.
Indian Field More Frnltfnl.
The scandals of the Indian territory will
undoubtedly prove a fruitful subject for
dlecusslon. Tncre has been much unneces
sary delay In get, ing the investigation lu
the Indian country started, although It has
been clcui.'y t:io put pose of Secretary Hitch
cock r.nd President Roosevelt to begin that
work as speedily as possible. The trouble
seems to be with Charles J. Bonaparte , of
Baltimore, whom Mr. Roosevelt selected to.
conduot the Investigation. Although Mr.
Bonaparte's appointment a a special cotu
iiiisaloncr waa made ten days ago, It would
seem that so far he has hardly completed
a perusal ot the charges against the Indian
officials, and that he ha made no other
preparation for the work he ha agreed to
undertake. There are people who say that
Mr. Bonaparte Is not the right man to di
rect the Inquiry, and. that Mr. Roosevelt
should have selected a man more of the
type of Fourth Assistant Postmaster Oen
eral Brlstow, who ha demonstrated bis
ability to uncover corruption In the govern-,
met service. Mr. Bonaparte seem to con.
aidir his duties as largely Judicial, and he
at first stated that he did not illnk It
would be necessary for him to go lo the
Indian territory' at all. He said lie could
reach a decision as to whether there was or
was not. corruption In the Indian touutry
by carefully going over the papers on file
at the Interior department. )t did not seem
to occur to hint that he was expected to
obtain evidence of crime r.nd that his du
ties were those of a detecllve and not thoae
of a Judge. Unless Mr. Bonaparte changes
his plans, ihe Investigation, instead Of being
well under way by the time congress con
venes, as Mr. Roosevelt Intended, It should
lie. will not even have been started.
There is no doubt that an effort will also
I lie made by the democrats to get a congres
sional Investigation in the Indian territory
and the chances are that they will succeed.
That the republicans expect th Indian
scandals to come up In congtens Is Indicated
bv the announcement a few days ago that a
subcommittee of the senate committee on
Indian affairs would go to the Indian terri
tory about October 13 to get an Insight Into
the condition there. The mission of the
senate subcommittee. H I believed, I In
obtain facts with which to meet the criti
cisms of democrats, who will make an effort
to hold the administration of Mr. Roose
velt responsible for the wrongdoing of
officials whom the secretary of th Interior
unfortunately trusted as honest men.
Treasury Officials HopeloL
Officials of the treasury are hopeful that
the refunding plan adopted by Secretary
Shaw will cause a better feeling in bus!,
hens circles generally and Inspire confidence
