Will Nturt In October to Brio People Into doner Touch with Mew European Friends. PARIS, Sept. 17. (Special Cablegram to The Bee.) The steady and systematic way Jn which the French colonial office Is pro ceeding to open tho 8ahara passes unno ticed on the boulevards, but It Is a manifes tation of French energy which ought not to be allowed to escape notice abroad. For some years the whole vast country between the Senegal and Niger and . the French North. African possessions, that so-called desert Blnterland of Morocco, Algeria and Tunis, of wh!ch when It was ceded to Franca Lord Salisbury spoke as disdain fully as did Voltaire of the snow fields of Canada, has been explored in all directions by French officers, who are gradually re vealing the varied and active commercial life existing throughout the region of the Bands. The web being thus silently woven in the country behind the Atlas is gradually en veloping Morocco. The work, to be sure, has Just begun, but when one recalls the speed with which French posts have beeft pushed forward from Flgig to Igll and then from Jgll to Tldlkelt It Is Impossible not to admire the tenacity and continuity of French colonial policy. A French occasion for admiration Is now offered In the announcement of the mission with which the colonial office has entrusted a French officer, Captain Thevenlaut, Jn the region of Adrar. The country which It is now hoped to sweep into the Frenth west African colonial net Is In the Hinter land of the Spanish possessions of the Rio Oro, a mountainous region on the caravan route between Senegal, southern Alicerla and Morocco. Uurs-blooded Berbers live there In several famous and rich passes that are the center of an excellent trade in (rain. Spain Claims the Country. Spain has always had pretensions here, hoping one day to- make this upland region an eastern glacis toward the desert. But no serious claim to the regions could be put forward by It, and In 1892 the sultan of Adrar gave a friendly reception to the rep resentative of France sent thither by the government- of Senegal. Last- month the governor of West Africa. M. Ro'ume. V.-as In Paris, and, according to the Petit Jour nal he waa able to convince the chiefs that the moment was ripe for a definite and serious effort to extend the French protec torate over the Adrar highlands. The min ister. Me Doumergue, decided that a mis sion should be entrusted to the above named French officer to explore the Adrar coses and trade routes and to sign a treaty with the sultan. It la understood that the expedition will set out In October from St. Louie. Captain Thevenlaut, it should be aid, has only Just returned from a bril liant tranasaharan exploration, the object of which waa to link the northeaatern posts of the French Sudan with those of South Oran. It Is his experience in thla success ful expedition that haa won him the honor of selection by the colonial offlot In this fresh effort to plant the French flag In West African region, where Jt had not hitherto been seen. .

I tlonax " VICTIM OF AN INSANE WOMAN Pari. Reports a Story of Hypnotism and Lunacy Without Parallel. n.nra n a i ci i I r.u .. The Bee.) A great sensaH created In Versailles an ' oV country by a story of hot which the central figure la a cert ' .ne. Chrlst mann, well known In the lfwallty aa a pro fessional hypnotist anil masseuse. She had for some months past exercised great Influence over a wealthy widow named Fleury, who Is staled to hare paid her a considerable sum of money. In return for which she promised to cure her of an Illness. Mme. Fleury paid her dally visits for a month and subsequently was prevailed upon to convey her daughter, who was suffering from sn Incurable disease, to the place for treatment by magnetic hypnotism. As the two women failed to return home the police entered the house of the mas seuse. In a room which was draped In pur ple velvet and ornamented with golden stars and moons, with grotesque masks grinning from ' every corner, they found Mme. Fleury saying her prayers. Near her, extended on a couch covered with roses and other flowers, by the side of which burned two Immense wax candles In silver .candlesticks, lay the dead body, almost emaciated to a skeleton, of her daughter. The masseuse declared the girl waa not dead, but was in a state of transition while undergoing the process of renovation, of which she herself had the secret. Mme. Fleury, who showed symptoms of having been hypnotised, repeated the mas sense's story, and declared her firm deter mination to remain watching until her daughter's body should be completely re stored. When the doctors were summoned they declared that the girl had been dead for more than twenty days, but that decompo sition had been delayed owing to the body having been treated with a atrong chemical solution. Mme. Fleury was with difficulty per suaded to believe that her daughter waa dead. When at length ahe did realize It she made a sudden violent movement and, quickly taking a silk handkerchief from her pocket, attempted to strangle herself. She was prevented from doing so by the doctors and conveyed home. Both Mme. Chrlstmann and Mme. Fleury were examined by a specialist In mental disease, who has come to the conclusion that the former Is Insane. Mme. Fleury Is, he stated, a woman of weak Intellect, who haa been greatly Impressed by the other's supposed wonderful powers. Both women appeared really to have thought that by Incantations and the like the dead woman would have been brought hack to life. Both Mmo. Chrlstmann and Mme. Fleury hive been ordered to hold themselves at the disposal of the police. IRISH ARE RAISING FRUITS Promise, to Supply Much of British Trade In Short Time. the LONDON, Sept. 17. (Special Cablegram to The Bee.) Ireland la making a bold bid for a leading position In the British fruit markets. Orchard cultivation is being en couraged by' the authorities and arrange ments are being actively prosecuted for the drying and packing of fruit. In American fashion, for exportation. "Only last week," said Mr. Garcia of Covent Garden this week, "a government official Interviewed me on the subject. The effort la undoubtedly serious and should do much for Ireland. The fruit grown In that country la among the finest in the world. I myself am going to give the fruit a trial. "I do not think that London will be much affected. The larger supply will be, sent to the north of England." A leading Jam manufacturer expressed the view that Ireland's fruits would not bo likely to Injure English growers so far as the Jam-making industry Is concerned. "Our firm," he aald, "uses none but the fruit that la near at hand." Blackberries are beginning to come into the markets in small quantities and rather high prices as much as 35 a ton are re alised. These prices, however, are not likely to be maintained when the season is more advanced, as the crop Is expected to be exceptionally heavy. France U ahead of us In point of time and dealers there are supplying large quan tities to English manufacturer, and sales men. Blackberries are also expected frpm Ire land, and, as the trade for the food is gain ing in popularity, the shippers stand an ex cellent chance of finding purchasers.

Sept. 17.-6peclal Cablegram to The Dee The queen mother of Spain ha. undertaken to provide for the maintenance of girl trlpleta. the children of a Madrid working man. The case attracted a good deal of at tention In military clrclea, aa Ortla, th. father, had "formerly served as a soldier In Cuba and had fought In tha Spanish-American war with considerable distinction. Being In reduced circumstances owing to scarcity cf work, he applied to the parish priest for assistance. Two day. later telegram was received from San Sebastian by the commandant of the Civil Guard In. forming him that th. queen mother had decided to take th. children under her car NEW LAWS FOR JEWS s Ministers Take 8teps to Oorreot MORE LIBERALITY IS TO BE SHOWN Laws Are to Be Made Granting Wider Territory for Eesidence. EDUCATED CLASS GET THE' BENEFIT May Visit Places Heretofore Impassible Under the Government's Orders. WORKINGMEN GAIN LITTLE PRIVILEGE Alienation I. Made that Sew Law. Are Constructed to Permit Petty Persecution by tho Court.. BERLIN. Sept 17. (Special Cablegram to The Bee ) The Cologne Gazette learns from St. Petersburg that the Russian min isters and heads of departments recently assembled together under the presidency of M. Wltte to discuss the revision of a number of erroneous interpretations of the laws affecting the Jews. The erroneous verdicts of the courts of record had re ceived the force of law by degrees of the senate or of the council of the empire. Th finding of the ministerial conference was drawn up by M. Wltte and has been submitted to the csar. who Is understood to have assented to 'the resolution. The reconstituted statutes, which will be promulgated during the course of the next few weeks, deal chiefly with those Jews who were already In a so-called "privi leged" position. Thus the wives-and chil dren of Jews who have received a uni versity education or who are members of the first-class merchant or craft guilds, receive express permission to continue In their respectlv. places of residence or dom icile during the absence of the head of the family. These same "privileged" Jews are also to be permitted to live In villages and are accorded the specific right there to rent a dwelling house, shop or workshop. The present laws only provides that "Israelite, have the right to live In villages," but no mention Is made of the right to rent dwell ing places or workshops. Furthermore the Jews are to receive cer tain mitigations of the legal difficulties which obtain against the keeping of Jewish servants by Jews. The duration and valid ity of the traveling permits and passes for first and second class Jews are also to be extended. Hitherto these persons have been prohibited from visiting more than twice any place In which they held no right of dwelling. Now, however, the "pale" will be extended, and they will be allowed to travel outside the zone. But no Jew Is to spend more than 180 days in one year outside the authorized zone. The correspondent of the Rhenish organ adds that In well-Informed quarters In St. Petersburg the new ordinances are com mented upon In a sceptical spirit upon the grour.d that nu,oober of Inaccuracies have been allowed to creep In which will afford an opportunity for capricious and discre tionary Interpretations of the revised stat utes at the hands of the provincial authori se Whatever Justification there may be for the foundation of these fears. It is certain that the large mass of the Jewish working classes, who are most of all sub ject to oppression and to persecution, have received no alleviation of their lot SPANISH BABIES ARE MIXED Mother. Will Try to 1 Unravel the Tangle In a Family Council. i SAN SEBASTIAN. Sept. 17. (Special Ca blegram to The Be.) The Identity pf two babies which have been born in the forest near Cabezon, a small town in 8a n tan da r province, has to be settled by a council of the families of both. While the mothers were taking a walk In the forest the children were born, both being boys. A number of women from a neighboring village, who arrived on the scene, took mothers and babies home on stretchers. Unfortunately the excited women handed the Infant, from one to the other, and in the confusion that followed It became Im possible to distinguish one child from the other. By way of temporary arrangement each of the two mothers accepted a baby with, out troubling herself as to whether it was her baby or not. The families of the two women have de cided to hold a Joint meeting, at which efforts will be made to Identify the babies by some distinguishing family character istic STARTS ANOTHER LANGUAGE Ella Molee Would Compromise Five Language to Create a New One. LONDON, Sept 17. (Special Cablegram to The Bee.) Yet another attempt Is made to construct an International language. It haa been christened "Tutonlsh" by it. originator. Dr. Ella. Molee.. and Is a com promise tongue of Saxon, English, Teutonic-English and German words, with a small blending of Scandinavian and Dutch words. It Is to be phonetic In spelling, perfectly regular In grammer and self-explaining In Its vocabulary. The first commandment, according to "Tutonlsh" would be thus rendered: "Daur shal have no audr gods before ml." It Is claimed that the English, German, Dutch and Scandinavian languages have so many word. In common that If It were not for the difference. In spelling, Inflec tion and pronunciation the Teuton, could easily learn to understand each other after a few days' practice, and that If all Teu tons united In one tongue other nation, would be compelled to study It. v , SOME GERMAN PUNISHMENTS Serloa.

VIENNA, Sept. 1". (Special Cablegram to The Bee.) The stillness which has come over Macedonia Is, unfortunately, not a sign of substantial Improvement In the out look. The bands are marking time and only fight when attacked; the Turks give comparatively little cause for complaint, but there seems reason to suppose that some of the European officers who were sent to reform the Turkish gendarmarie hav. come perilously near to falling' out among themselvees. Not only does the spirit of hearty de votion to a common task, which would have been an Indispensable condition of suc cess, appear to be lacking, but In many Instances there seems to be a positive dislike and dlsfrust of General Glorgis. Information given me today by a' traveler who has Just returned from Macedonia, where he had opportunities of studying the situation, not only at Salonlca, but at Monustfr, Drama and fskub. goes to show that the European officers have no faith In the success of the reforms, and that ex cept In one section their efforts to Improve the gendarmerie are producing results more apparent than real. The Austro-Hunga-rlan, accuse General de Glorgis of being more Turkish than the Turks and Insinuate that he has either been influenced by I Turkish blandishments or Is striving to promote a good understanding between Italy and Turkey at the expense of the European solidarity. RED CROSS CREATOR IS DYING Henri Dunant Now Lie. Friendless and Poor In Swiss Hospice. GENEVA, Sept. 17.-(Special Cablegram to The Bee.) M. Henri Dunant, the founder of the Red Cross league. Is dying friend less, poor and alone In a hospice In tha Canton of AppenzelJ, Switzerland. He It wao who. In his work, "Un Souvenir de Solferlno," suggested the organization of such a society. The horrors of Solfrino made such an Im pression on his mind that he wrote the wonderful little pamphlet describing the suffering of the wounded and calling upon the nation, to alleviate the worst horrors of war by the formation of an International hospital service. The book attracted much attention and resulted In the Geneva convention of 1864, which established the neutrality of the hos pitals and ambulance services, and In the founding of societies in every country with an international committee at Geneva as a center. In 1901 Dunent shared the Nobel Peace Prize with M. Frederic Passey, receiving a sum of 4.000. ' He Is, however, a poor man In spite of It, since he has spent large urns in the humanitarian causes he has championed. ROSEBERY SURPRISED BELGIUM Say. Exception. Taken to Anglo. British Agreement Are Not' Sound. ' BRUSSELS. Sept. 17 -Speclal Cable, gram to The Bee.) Lord Rosefoery'a refer ences to the Anglo-French agreement are the subject of general (Comment In the Bel gian press, and have been received, for the most part, with disapproval not unmixed with surprise. The reciprocal arrangement aa to Egypt and Morocco has always pre sented itself to the Belgian point of view aa having effectually removed the most likely cause of possible trouble In the fu ture, and Lord Rosebery's fears are thought to be 'not merely exaggerted, but devoid of any serious foundation. The Independence Beige, in declaring that Eng land has In no sense lost by the exchange, says: "It is really Inconceivable that a statesman professing liber?! principles should, condemn a conventicfi which alms at achieving such an object, and criticism of this kind comes at a singularly inoppor. tune moment. The noble lord will fall to secure the sympathy of either party, and the moderates whom he professes to lead will certainly refuse to subscribe to the opinion he haa formulated."

The supporters of fiscal reform are agitating for another visit from Mr. Chumberluln, and though no definite ar rangements have yet been made two great public meetings about Christmas are In contemplation. . The Tariff Reform league, which Is In close touch with the Liberal Unionist asso ciation of tho country, has been making leady headway In the Wesi riding and an active autumn and winter campaign in fa vor of the views of Mr. Chamberlain la con templated. In no part of the riding is there more divided opinion on the tariff reform question than at Leeds, crowded as It Is with merchants and manufacturers; but Mr. Chamberlain, it Is admitted, haa a large following In the olty.

The vessel de tached will remain in the vicinity ot San Francisco, prepared to enforce neutrality should other Russian or Japanese vessels put in at the Gulden Gate. The Wyoming also has been ordered to remain at Bre merton In readiness for the same duty. The department has no official information that there are other Russian cruiser, bound for the Pacific coast, but there Is talk to that effect around Sun Francisco and it was thought advisable to be ready for any emergency. Marblehead Remains In Hnrbor. SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 17. The armored cruiser New York, flagahlp of the Paclf.o squadron, the protected cruiser Boston, the gunboat Bennington, the torpedo boat de stroyer Paul Jones and the collier Nero sailed from the harbor today for target practice at Magdalena bay. The cruiser Marblehead remained In port to protect the Interest, of the government. It Is stated that the New York will meet the Chicago now enroute from the Atlantic station and that Rear Admiral Goodrich will trans fer his flag to it, the New York continuing Its trip to the New York navy yard, where it Is to be repaired. The other vessels, with the exception of the Paul Jones, which la to be stationed at San Diego, will return to this city. The Chronicle says that from a re liable source it has been learned that the Lena is not alone In its wand erings in the eastern Pacific ocean and It is stated with authority that some where east of a line drawn from the Ha waiian islands to Unalaska, In the Aleutian chain, at least two of the czar's cruisers are roaming the seas and apt at any time, singly or together, to seek the safe haven found by the Lena last Sunday. Whether the Korea Is one of these two vessels known to be near the coast, or whether it Is a third vagrant orulaer, is not settled. It is generally believed In naval circles that the cruiser, referred to are converted auxiliaries; like the Lend, but there is a possibility that they are regular men-of-war, which, .like the Lena, were forced to escape to the eastward. Lena's Fate Not Decided. ST. PETERSBURG, Sept. 17.-6 p. m. The representations between the United States and Russia relative to the disposi tion of the Russian auxiliary cruiser Lena at San Francisco have not yet been com pleted. The request of the United States that the crew be Interned at Mare island until the end of the war haa been trans mitted through the Russian embassy at Washington and is being considered by the admiralty, where it is desired that the crew be allowed to return home under an agree ment that the officers and men are not to fight again during the war. The admiralty has no confirmation of the reports that the Lena had been engaged in a fight in the Pacific. Dismantling; Begins 7onday. VALLEJO, Cal., Sept. 17.
