gers of the steamship Prlnss Joachim,

tho steamer Vlgaiancla, now at Nassau.
The message read:
Seguranca has all passengers from the
Joachim. Bring to Nassau., ., V111 ar
rive. Wllf keep you inrormJ.
Apparently the time when tha passen
gers are expected to reach Nassau had
been lost from the message, but at the
Ward line office it was said that the
Seguranca probably woold reach Nassau
between t and 3 o'clock this afternoon.
The Prina Joachim Is believed to be In

Army Inspectors
Say Troops Are Not
Properly Trained
WASHINGTON, Nov. 23 The Inspec
tors who were busy picking flaws in the
army last year apparently found several.
They are ?et out In the annual report of
the inspector general's department, which
was niude this year by A. W. Brewster,
acting Inspector general.
The inspectors were required to test
tho mobility of the troops and try out
the bayonet and sabre drill. The condi
tions developed by these exercises show
that the field preparations of the army
was not uniformly vatlsfactory.
Cue Inspector reported that a lair.e ma
jority of tho troops wero i.ot properly Another held that garrison work
should be curtailed and the training cur
ried in the field.
The maneuvers in Texas were exten
sively reviewed in the report. It is de
clared that the concentration was a great
benefit to the army.
Motor trucks were i-iiown to be deslr
alilo and ambulances abeolutely neces
sary for the field officers.
The Infantry Is said to. need much la-
l formation in marching and a suggestion
j !U made for a heroic test ill order to
ileal n what can be expected by having
an Infantry company at war strength
march with an ciutontoblle truek from
Ssn Francisco to New York.

LINCOLN CKNTER, Kan., Nov. 23.
For more than six hours today the Jury
in the "tar party" case considered the
testimony, but vheu the regalur ad
journment of the day session was taken
at 8 o'clock no verdict had been reached.
A recess of an hour and n half wus or
dered and at 7:30 o'clock a night session
was begun. At no time during the de
liberations of tho Jury will the men be
kept later thun midnight, unless they
wish to stay, said Judge Orover today.
As the hours rolled by this afternoon
and no verdict was reached, the opinion
that a hung Jury would result, which
has been freely ventured, ever slnco tho
trial began, grew stronger. The defense
and the stat admit that the rases against
the three men are not equally strong and
that conditions for long discussion are
Once during the afternoon ,the Jury
Rsked to be permitted to examine the
exhibits in the case, a handkerchief with
which Mary Chamberlain rubbed some of
the tar from her body and later dropped
In the road where sho wiuj attacker; a
man's handkerchief also daubed with the
mixture found at the scene of the crime
and a can of paint Itself. The handker
chiefs wero passed among the jurors
and each scrutinized the articles care
fully. They el so Inspected the paint can,
which stood on a table in front of the
Jury box.; ,
Hoof Paint I'sed.
None of the court attaches or attor
neys havo been able to determine upon
Just what point the Jury lins under dls
cuBsion. but it was generally believed
that there existed a posslblity that thp
twelve men doubted If tho tar mixture
waB really used on the young school
teacher. The mixture was not pure tar.
It was a roof paint, but very thick and
containing a large amount of tar.
The state fulled to prove by dliect tes
timony thatt he tar came from Clark
mill. The can waa found In a buggy in
which the men rode from the scene of the
tuning, it Is said, and Kverett Vlark ad
mitted an thn nta-.d that he hid similar
paint In his mill. The ruggestlon also
was mado today that the Jury might have
uou inert that the stuin on the handker
chiefs was made by the same kind of
paint that tho can contains, In which case
the link between the paint can nnd the
tarring episcde would bo severed.
The Jury deliberated quietly and ap
peared to bo giving the ense close study.
At no time did any member of the body
raise his voice above u normal tone.
K. li. Dillon was chosen foreman of. the
Jury. He Is a wetalhy farmer with a
broad education. Besides speaking three
languages he has printed a book In
Gaelic, making eevry character himself.
Pent nice Till Today,
' Just before court adjourned tonight
Judge Grover announced that no sentence
would be passed until some time tomor
row on any defendant In tho tarring
cases. An effoit is belna nmrt hv thm
! attorneys for the confessed men to have
I sentence deferred until the next term
j cf c urt. The court has not promised to
do this, but will hear arguments on the
matter after the present case is settled.
Tho penalty for assault and battery,
which es'ery defendant In the tar cases is
churned with. Is a fine of from $1 to $5'J0
or a sentence of from one day to ono
year in the county Jail. Both penalties
cannot 'be inflicted in a single case.
Under conditions here, the jail being
small. It would be practically Impossible
to accoinmodato all the "tur party pris
oners should they be sentenced to Im
prisonment. Gompers and Mitchell

Gompers, John Mitchell and Frank Mor

by his wife and involving the professor's
co-worker In scientific reneareh, Mme.

caise. Thero were several fierce bouts under
tho cameras of a score of photographers.
Finally Daudet was wounded in the arm.
A reconcll atlon followed.
The churges In which the names of tho
two eminent scientists Mine. Curie and

founded on the tact that Mme. Curie and
Prof. Lanpevln were In close association
in thtlr scientific researches. This gave
rise to Jealousy on the part of Mme.
Langevin, who brought suit against her
husband, coupling his name with that of
Mme. Curlt.
Mme. Curie, who was credited .equally
with tier late husbund In the discovery of;
radium, was after his death nominated
to occupy tho chair of physics which ho
had held at the College of France.
