1'AltlS. Nov. au.--The correspondent of
tho Associated Press today located An
drew Hamilton who was confidential legis
lative "representative at Albany and had
halt an hour's talk with him concerning
Ms plans and his answer to tlio requests
of the Armstrong insurance committee that
lie give orders to his agents In New York
fu surrender his papers to tho committee
and that he go to New Tork to testify.
Mr. Hamilton arrived here a few days
ago from Bad Nauhelm springs, where he
had been for some, time taking ths cure
under the care of doctors. He looks fairly
well. His face Is ruddy but he still com
plains of the effect of his ailment and re
mains under tho doctor's treatment pending
their determination as to whetner It will
be necessary for him to resume the cura
at the springs.
Whert seen by the correspondent Mr.
Hamilton was with one of his Intimate
frlenda who Is familiar with his affairs
and who explained some details which Mr.
Hamilton did not wish to publicly discuss
t this time.
Mr. Hamilton did not seek fo avoid the
meeting. On the contrary, he said that
lie hud not the slightest desire to conceal
his whereabouts, although owing to his
continued III health and the attention re
quired In making up hs answer to the
Armstrong committee he did not desire to
see visitors.
Makes Brief Answer.
Answering the correspondent's request
for a statement concerning his answer to
the committee's request, Mr. Hamilton
dictated the following textual reply:
"I ant preparing a reply to tho requests
of the committee which will be sent when
completed to President McC'all of the New
York Life Insurance company."
Mr. Hamilton said thla was the only
formal statement he would now make but.
continuing iis. Informal talk, he pointed
out that It would be manifestly Improper

reply before It had been submitted to the i
committee. Moreover, he was now engaged
In framing bis reply, so that his work was
ntt yet completed.
.'Vnj can say, however," Mr. Hamilton
added. ''Ti-i wi wl'l fj toi.iplrle.
Yotl can also say that President McCall
undoubtedly will submit my reply to the
Concerning the length of his reply Mr.
Hamilton said he could not say anything
concerning that point.
Hears of So Charges.
The correspondent suggested that Mr.
Hamilton without entering upon details of
Ms reply give his personal views upon the
charge put forward In New York. Mr.
Hamilton's friend thereupon replied: "Hut
there arc no charges. During the course of
the legislative Inquiry certain allegations
have been made relati'-!fo Judge Hamil
ton's relations with the subject, but no
charges have been formulated and he Is
now engaged to the best of his ability in
answering the statements made from time
to tUiie concerning him."
Wnen Mr. Hamilton was asked whether
ho would return to New York he said It
would depend entirely on the determination
of the doctors. The friend of Mr. Hamilton
added: "Judge Hamilton has been asked
to take a prolonged cure at the springs.
His Illness is now manifesting Itself In a.
cutaneous affliction of. the hips and shoul
der. Should the doctors decide that his re
turn to the springs Is Imperative. Judge
Hamilton .will probably have to comply! as
saving his health Is far more Important to
him than this Insurance controversy."
In conclusion Mr. Hamilton said he hoped
to be able to complete and forward his an
swer In the next few days.

LONDON, Nov. SO. Notwithstanding
the repeated assertions from the lib
eral side that Sir Henry Camp-bcll-Bannerman
would not take office at the
present Juncture, if Is now generally bo
lleed that the result of the cabinet coun
cil to be held today will be the heralding
of a liberal government, with Sir Henry as
premier. The official announcement of the
result of the council Is likely to be delayed
for a few days, but the Associated Press
understands that Mr. Balfour will intimate
to hift colleagues his desire to leave office
and will Invite their concurrence.
A few days will be required for the for
malities of laying the matter before King
Edward, who will arrive at Buckingham
palace next Monday to hold a privy coun
cil. Probably the resignation of the gov
ernment will be announced on Wednesday
and then King Edward will Invite Sir Henry

NEW YORK. Nov. 3ti.-Iti celebrullun of
tho SSOth anniversary of the landing of
the Jews In America a meeting was held
In Carnegie hall today nt which addresses
were delivered by ex-President CJrover
Cleveland. Governor Frank W. Hlgglns of
New York. Mayor George B. McClcllan of
New York City. Bishop Coadjutor Diivid
Greer of the New York diocese of the
Protestant Episcopal church, Mayor Suls
berger and Rev. Dr. H. Perelra Mendcs.
President Roosevelt, who Was unable to
attend, sent a significant letter, which was '
read to the great audience. Vice President
Fairbanks telegraphed his regrets and at
appreciation of the Jewish character.
Jacob H. Schlff. chairman of the execu
tive committee, which arranged the cele
bration, presided, and Dr. Frank Datnrosch
had charge of the musical program.
All of the addresses were In congratula
tory vein and references were made to the
recent atrocities in Russia only us one
of tho trials which have beset the Jewish
people, but which have not daunted their
spirit nor stopped their march to Success
where political conditions have permitted.
Mr. Schiff prefaced his presentation of
the, speakers of the day with a Bhort ad
dress, in which he said:
When, some months Rgo. It was de
cided to celebrate the settlement of Jews
In the United States and In this very
city, the people of the. Jewlnh faitn
throughout the land felt glad and proud
because this beloved country of their
adoption had become tho great exponent
of human liberties and of freedom of
conscience, furnishing an example to the
world how great and powerful a people
can become who give equal opportunity
to all. no matter what their origin or
their profession of faith may be. But our
gladness lias received a shock, our hopes
and expectations have for the time being
become dispelled. The brotherhood of man
our prophets hav taught us to look for
ward to, still remains a dream, the real
isation of which tho events of this very
month have one more removed into the
distant future. Racial prejudice and
hatred are still rampant, the Jew still re
mains tho martyr whose life must be
sacrificed, so that freedom and enlighten
ment for which lie has ever battled shall
triumph, even in darkest Russia.
But. though we sorrow, we feel that we
should rejoice and celebrate, because
America did liecome in centuries gone by
the home of people of our race and faith,
and is now our home and the home of
our children. . .
We who" are Americans pledge ourselves
anew upon tins momentous occasion, to
our fellow citizens, from whatever race
thev mnv have sprung or whatever faith
thev mu'v profess, that we stand ever
ready to' be one with them In every en
deavor to further argument the greatness
of this, our beloved common country and
the respect in wUK'h It Is held throughout
the world.
Mr. Schlff presented ' Mr. Cleveland as
the first speaker. The former president
was greeted with enthusiastic applause.

can festival.
A frost-purified atmosphere, sweetened
ind lightened by the. bursting rays of the
unconquerable sun, quick ned even the
lively life of a bustling people. In homes,
no less than In churches, the fust-springing
fount of perrenlul hopes and thankfulness
was open to the full.
Rich Remember Poor.
The prosperous had not forgotten the
unfortunate; Fortune's own favorites hud
paused to give comfort to those who hud
been lost lo her smiles for weary days and
mouths. Even the ones ordinarily most
forgotten were remembered In some shape.
The hand of plenty was willingly
open to help even the careless, and per
haps In some case the undeserving. Thote
who have fallen and care not to make ths
effort to rise, were reminded, If their eyea i
and hearts were open, that "The world is
not so bad a, place as the growling cynic
paints it."
Out of thankful 'hearts and In obedience
to the Master's behest, feasting for the
multitude was planned with as much care
and as generously as feasting for the few.
Prison bars were forgotten for the time
by the rebellious or drooping souls to
make new aspirations out of the unwonted
satisfaction of the present needs. Through
gloomy corridors drifted the nroma of
fragrant viands; anticipation gave sweet
If temporary surcease from gnawing re
gret. Hope took root again In many a
heart where long It had lain dormant if
not dead. Such hearts sang Involuntary
pneans to the sanctified thought that In
spired Thanksgiving day.
Hovels May Become Palaces.
Hovels CBn become palaces where plenty
begets good feeling and good fellowship;
and even the hovels In the by-paths were
not forgotten In Omaha on this day of
reverential praise. Hustling newsboy and
shiftless adult were allko cared for out of
a plenteous store. Club room and church
were alike the scenes erf practical demon
stration of that fello feeling that at
times- makes selfish hihianlty wondrous

The Incident gave rise to most alarming
rumors In St. Petersburg Including ono to
the effect that the emperor actually had
been attacked and that a grand duke had
