PENNSYLVANIA BIG DAY
The Keystone State Represented at
the Atlanta Exposition.
ADDRESSES BY THE VISITORS
Kcraarks by Governor Hastings. Chief
Jostle Williams, Lieutenant Governor
Lyon and Othcrs-A Royal Welcome
Extended to Pennsylvania.
Atlanta, Ga.. Nov. 14. The Pennsyl
vanlans had possession of the exposi
tion to-day. Governor Hastings and
Rtaff. the justices of the Supreme court,
the Manufacturers' club of Philadel
phia and the Pittsburg Press Cadets
came in on special trains early in the
morning. There were two hundred In
the ManufacturersSclub party. During
the afternoon, the governor and his
staff were escorted to the exposition by
the governor's horse guards of Atlanta.
The speeches were delivered at Penn
sylvania's handsome building. Judge
Ureen, of the Supreme court, presided.
Governor Hastings, in responding to
the address of Governor Atkinson, said:
(iovcrncr Hasting' Speech.
Ladles and Gentlemen: This is Pennsyl
vania day in Atlanta, and the Cotton
Stales and International exposition. We
are here by your invitation and we find on
all sides the evidence of your hearty wel
come and your well known hospitality.
Pennsylvania comes to Georgia today to
renew her sentiments of good will, and to
reaffirm that spirit of comity and fra
ternity which should always exist between
sister states. Georgia and Pennsylvania
two great sovereign states, today meet In
fraternal association; they offer In friend
ly rivalry the products or their native re
sources, wealth and development.
In our journey here we. passed through
rich and historic states, but we have
crossed no sectional lines. They have been
obliterated. They should never have
marred the map of the United States.
We have seen, as we have never seen
before, the new South, not in hud or blos
som, but In that full and radiant bloom
whose fragranue permeates the whole
There is much of similarity In the two
states united in these ceremonies; a simi
larity In the hills anil valleys; In the fertil
ity of the soil; in the abundance of their
crops; In their stores of mineral wealth;
and vnlue of internal commerce; In their
"mountains that point to the heavens, and
the rivers that run to the tea."
I proclaim to you that the patrlotlo heart
of Pennsylvania beats as warmly and as
steadfastly for Georgia and her sister
states today as when they first united to
found a government upon the rock of free
dom. Pennsylvania was one of the earli
est provinces to throw her weight, her In
fluence, her fortune, her honor and her
future In favor of a free and Independent
government. The historic bell which you
see at my right, for more than twenty
years rang out a warning to the mother
country against the oppressions visited
upon our people, and Georgia and the
Carolina and Virginia and Delaware and
Maryland stood round the cradle of lib
erty when this same bell rang out Its tri
umphant notes of liberty and equality to
the western world and all the inhabitants
While calling the attention of Georgians
to those things of which we boast In
Pennsylvania, let me avail myself of the
opportunity to direct the attention of
Pennsylvanlans to some distinguishing
features In the history of Georgia.
Georgia's versatility of climate and soil
Induced her law makers to establish the
11 ret state department of agriculture in the
Oeorela was the first and only free and
anti-slave colony In America. Her code of
laws of 1799 -was so wine and symmetrical
that it Was afterwards approved ark to
some extent engrarted upon the vene .Jblc
hn.lv of F.nirliKh lurlSDrudence. -
The first steamboat that ever crossed the
ocean sailed from Savannah.
The first female college In the world, me
Wesleyan Female college, was established
at Macon, Ga.
The cotton gin was Invented in by
Eli Whitney near Savannah, on the plan
tation of General Green, of Revolutionary
The first sewing machine was Invented
by a Georgia preacher, r. K. uouimng.
Georgia is the second state In the pro.
cluctlon of cotton, and the first In the
South In all general lines or manufacture.
We have gathered a few testimonials
and have brought them here to lay them
as an offerlnir of friendship at your feet.
They testify better than our briefly spoken
words of the good will which we bear to
th neonle of Georgia and her sister states
of the South. We are but one of that
great constellation or lour anu rorty stars
which .comprises the only government
founded on the rock of freedom, blessed
with every gift of nature, now so peaceful,
so prosperous and homogenous.
The starry Danner, uemgnmi, woven, huh
first flung to the breeze In Philadelphia,
now floats In peace and In glory over an
undivided nation. We. In Pennsylvania,
believe In one flag and one country. We
believe In the union of states. We bettave
in a common country, a common flag, a
common Americanism, a community or in
terest and patriot lem.
His address made a fine impression
on the Southerners and he was loudly
and frequently applauded.
Governor Hastings was followed by
Mayor King, of Atlanta; Lieutenant
Governor Lyon, of Pennsylvania; H. H.
Cabannis. of Atlanta, and Judge Wil
liams, of Pennsylvania's Supreme
bench. .' .
Justice Williams' Remark.
We eohie to your great state and to your
beautiful city. Its chief manufacturing
center, because we wish to know more of
you, or tne resources oi mis general re.
gton, or Its industries ana or tne remarK
able development that has been In prog.
ress for a score or more of years. We
know something of your history, because
It is a part or tne nisiory or tnin great
republic of which we are all citizens.
But we recall with greater Interest and
with deeper emotion the fact that Georgia
like our own magnificent commonwealth,
was one of the thirteen colonies that
shook off alliance to the British crown
and that emerged from that struggle fi;ee
and independent states.
There are rorty-nve states now gathered
Into the fold of the Union and thev stretch
from ocean to ocean. There were thir
teen colonies then hulntr the Atlantic
coast. We are responsible jointly and sev
erally tor ine prenrrvation, tne develop
ment and the rounding out Into complete
ness of proportions of the Institutions
which eur fathers founded and transmit
ted to us. W e want to know more of the
natural resources of your state and of the
region or wnicn it is so important a part.
More of your Industries and productions,
more of your growth and the measure of
prosperity you nave reached, more of your
educational system, and what may be
called the tone of public opinion. And
when upon tho conclusion of our visit,
which will bo much too short for what we
would like to gather from It we come to
say good-bye and enter upon our home
ward journey, we hope to take with us
and leave behind us no memories but such
as are pleasant and are calculated to give
to us all an Increased Interest in whatever
concerns the welfare, the usefulness and
the happiness of eaoh other, and of our
fe'low citizens wherever under the folds
of our glorious star spangled banner their
homes may be. . .
' Llent. Governor l.vons' Address.
Lieutenant Governor . Lyons, In re

and Georgia, planted as they were to the
Interests of liberty of conscience and for

One hundred years ago the invention of
the cotton gin revolutionized the cotton
industry of the south, and from being the
producer of but a few bales the cotton
states became the cotton producers of the
world. The cry for years was "Cotton Is
king." We of Pennsylvania cry "Iron is
king." King cotton is dethroned and a
queen has taken a throne, "Queen Cot
ton." Let us cry: "Long live King Iron
and Queen Cotton."
what Is ror ine wenare oi ine King is
for the welfare of the queen: and what Is
for the queen Is also for the king. What
Is for the south is for the north, and for
the north, the south. And what Is best for
both is best for the nation. Let us oulld
our railroads north and south, as well as
east and west. Let our cry be "Protec
tion, patriotism and progress."

New York. Nov. 14, The annual fall
meeting of the National Base Bull
league, which was adjourned from last
night, was concluded tonight after n
session which, with lntedmls(ora.
lasted from 12.no till 7 p. m.
President John T. Brunh, of Cincin
nati, and President Andrew J. Freed
man, of New York, tired some Lot
shot at one another , during the day.
Brush claims that Freedman gave him
the option on Doyle In exchange for
Arlle Latham, and that the New
Yorker had broken his word when he
made the Doyle-Gleason transfer.
This Freedman strongly and most em
phatically denied. The New York
magnate was pretty well turned down
by the league. His name does not ap
pear on one of the boards or commit
tees, and his attempt to overcome
President Byrne was a failure. The
Brooklyn magnate was elected by a
vote of 11 to 1, Freedman polling the

the league was the abolition of the
fine system. For the future offending
players will be expelled from the came

without any notice In glaring offenses,
umpires 'Hurst. Emmie and Keefe
gave evidence before the meeting vb to
their treatment by obstructing players
on last and previous seasons.
By the unanimous vote of the league
the secretary was directed to act-out
the Harry Wright relics, and to have
a list of the same drawn up and pre
sented at the next spring meeting.
A committee consisting of Messrs.
Brush, of Cincinnati: Hart, of Chi
cago, and Itoeers, of Philadelphia, was
appointed to arrange for a day In the
spring to be called "Harry Wright
day,"and to be uniformly set apart In
all the cities of the league, on which a
game is to te played and the proceeds
thereof to be devoted to the erection of
a rrunumsnt to tho veteran umnire.
un resuming session the delegates
proceeded to the election of officers.
President and Secretary Young was
elected last year for a term of three
years. - The national board was In
creased by the election of another mem
ber, John T. Brush, while Messrs.
Byrne, of Brooklyn, President Young
and sodon, or Boston, were re-elected.
With regard to the Sunday ball ques

Society filled the boxes and stalls, as
usual, and In nearly as brilliant plum
age as last evening. The duke and
duchess of Marlborough were guests of
Miss Duer for a couple of hours In the
afternoon, but their coming had been
kept secret, few of the thousands who
glanced at the pretty girl In a brdad
brimmed black plumed hat, as they
passed, or at the young man with
"down" on his upper Up, recognized
America's greatest heiress and his
grace, the duke. In the evening very
nearly the same society people were In
their seats and the multitude filled the
promenade and stared at them, neg
lecting the horses In the ring.
The special prize of $100 offered by
Mrs. John G. Heckscher for the best

London, Nov. 14. The Graphic, com
menting on the articles In the North
American Review, supporting the Mon

of the United States really care one
cent for these Indo-Spanlsh Republics,
which Is doubtful, the course of the
government Is clear.
They mustf ormally undertake the
duties of a protection, power, or, bet

HORRORS ARE INCREASING
Missionaries in Eastern Turkey Are
in Great Danger.
MINISTER TERRELL'S ACTION
Through Ilia Demands Orders Have Been
Issued That Americans B Afforded
Protection from the Mobs-Shocking
Cruelty to Chrlsians.
Boston, Nov. 14. Today's dispatches
from Constantinople state that the mis
sionaries In Harpoot, eastern Turkey,
are In great danger. The missionaries
referred to are those of the American
Secretary Rev. Judson Smith, D. D.,
bf the foreign department of the Ameri
can fcoard, and Hon. Henry D. Hyde, of
the prudential committee, left for
Washington today to confer with Sec
retary Olney tomorrow morning rela
tive to the situation as It effects the
missionaries of the board.
St. Petersburg. Nov. 14. Five Itus
sian warships have been ordered to
start Immediately for the Mediterra
nean, in view of the proposed naval
demonstration of powers at Constanti
nople. A Butcher for Grand Vizlcr.
Constantinople, Nov. 14. The latest
rumors here seem to Indicate that
Shaklr Pasha, the Imperial high com
missioner for Armenian reforms, Is
about to be recalled, in order that he
may be appointed grand vizier, to suc
ceed Hall Rlfat Pasha, the present In
cumbent. If the rumors piove correct,
this would be arjiiarently another open
defiance of the powers, for Shaklr
Pasha Is regarded as the chief butcher
of the Porte. Since his appearance at
Erzerum as high commissioner, the
massacres there have been more Moody
and frequent than ever before, and It Is
well known that he has done nothing
to punish the offenders. In fact, he has
been charged with calmly looking on
while the Turkish soldiers fired upon
every helpless Christian they caught
Abdulla Pasha, formerly president of
the Sassun commission of Inquiry, and
Saabedln Pasha, have been sent to
Erzerum and Bitlls, respectively, to
take command of the Turkish troops
In those places. This lends color to the
report that Shaklr Pasha Is coming
hack to Constantinople to be appointed
News received here today from the
district of Van records fresh massacres
of Armenian Christians there, and
there seems to be no reason for doubt
ing the authenticity of the reports. The
Kurds of Van are said to be attacking
and pillaging the Armenian villages,
and the Turkish officials are powerless
to preserve order.
Horrors of Erzerum.
Every dny brings further details of
the massacres at Erzerum, and each re
port makes the story of the crimes there
more ghastly. Men, women, and dill
drert were shot, bayoneted, burned, and
outraged for daya, the murders and out
rages lasting for weeks, though Inter
vals of rest are recorded. The orders
for these outages are said to have been
sent by the Porte, and they were-car
rled out In the most cruel manner Im
aginable. The number of killed will
probably never be known, and Is est!
mated at from 500 to 3,000, according to
Turkish or Armenian versions of the
affair. Certainly many hundreds were
killed, and Armenian accounts say that
some or tne victims were skinned alive,
while others were covered with netro-
leum and then set on Are. The Turks
claim that the Armenians were the ug
pressors, but independent reports ac
quit the latter of doing anything more
than attempting to defend themselves
at Erzerum and Dlarbcklr,, although at
Zeltun, where they captured a Turkish
battalion, and at Marash, the Armeni
ans arc admitted to have taken the In
Itiatlve. The Turns may not always be
to blame for the outbreaks, but there
seems to be no excuse for the massacres
Further troubles are reported at
Kharput, Malatla. and A'rabklr. and at
Marash the bloodshed and outrages are
said to have been even more terrible
and prolonged than at Erzerum. Du
ring the rioting at Marash, Hadjin, and
Orfah, the American missionaries, on
account of the strong representations
made on the subject to the Porte by
United States Minister Terrell, were
protected by Turkish gendarmes. This,
It Is known, was by direct order of the
Porte, telegraphed to Lie Turkish olll
clals at the places mentioned. Owing
to additional disquieting news just re
ceived here from Slvas. Mr. Terrell has
renewed his demand that the Porte oro.

Significance of Her. New Coinnco Mens
i nres-Probnbly a Step Toward the Re
dc rapt Ion of Paper Currency-
Washington. Nov. 14. The cablegram
of yesterday announcing the intention
of the Russian government to coin next
year 100,000.000 roubles In gold and 25,
000,000 In silver, in addition to the sub
sldlary coinage, has created consider
able interest among financiers because
of the evident purpose exhibited on the
part of Russia of Increasing her specie
currency. While Russia holds In coin
and bullion between four hundred and
five hundred millions of gold, she has
recently coined very little of this.
It Is thought in some quarters that
the general purpose of this increase is
to begin preparation for the redemp
tion of Russian paper, which Is the
principal currency In circulation In the
empire. Last August the Imperial
bank held f829.9O0.000 in paper. It is
also considered probable that In In
creasing her silver coinage as she Is
doing, Russia Is preparing to extend
her trade Into the stiver-using coun
tries of the Orient, especially China,
Japan and Corea.
To put this purpose Into execution It
wilt be necessary to go outside of her
own country to secure silver.
, CUBAN REBELLION.
An Important Engagement Between Span
Ish and Insurgent Force Expected.
Madrid. Nov. 14. Dispatches re
celved here from Havana say that the
Insurgent leader, Roloff, Is at Hlgun
ca. province of Santa Clara, awaiting
Maximo Gomex. who recently entered
that nrovlnce at the head of a force
of insurgents, with the Intention of
advancing upon the city of Santa
Clara, the (headquarters or captain
General Campos, now preparing to give
battle to the combined rebel forces.
Captain General Campos la now on his
way to Higunca, and a very important
engagement la , expected.. Domes r'
cently changed his tactics -of attempt
ing to tire out the-Spanlsh troops, ow
ing to the decision of the Cuban revo
lutionary assembly In New York, which
Is understood to consider It urgent
that the Insurgents bring about a de
cisive enr-smsot s!th the Spanish

Four new cunboats have arrived In

AGAIN THE DETECTIVE.
Members of a Chicago Agency Kill Frank
White in a Skirmish Where Bullets
W Hlstled on All Sides.
Chicaeo. Nov. 14. A man who was
supposed to be Clarence White, one of
the gang of porch climbers who last
spring robbed the residence of Norniun
B. pHeam, on LKe snore arive oi
thousands of. dollars worth of dia
monds, was killed tonight by Detec
tives belonging to the Berry agency.
The Berry men have been trying to
find White ever since the Lake Shore
robbery occurred, and early this even
ing five of them were standing on the
corner of Wlntnrop place ana roiK
street. Two men came by In a buggy
driving a white horse.
When opposite the detectives they
are alleged to have opened Are, and It
was briskly returned. The excitement
on the street was intense. The men
drove west on Polk street as a break
neck speed. A policeman telephoned
his station to send a patrol wagon In
pursuit. Thlr was done and the wagon
got out of the barn so oulckly that It
was only a little way behind the buggy
when Ogden avenue was reached. At
this street the man who was supposed
to be Clarence White fell from the
buggy and lay dead on the car tracks,
while the other man dashed on. The
patrol wagon stopped to pick up the
dead man and the buggy went a little
further when, the remaining occupant
deserted It and disappeared. At mid
night he hod not been found. At mid
night the morgue omcer telephoned
that a woman had Identified the body
as that of her son. Frank White. It
Is denied that White or his companion
fired any shots. No pistol was found
on the corpse.
C. A. McDonald, superintendent of
the Berry agency, was among the men
who was present at the shooting. He
brought Into the Central station, after
visiting his attorney, one of his opera
tors, by the name of Dicks, and sur
rendered him as tbe man who did the
shooting. The police believe that all
of the men shot, and that Dicks has
been selected as a dummy for the
present. They consider that the
Berry men have mutle a great blunder
that they took the liberty of firing at
a man who they believed to be Clar
ence White, and that they have made
SOUTH AMERICAN TROUBLE.
EnglishCapltollst Demanding Protection
In Colomblo-An Arbitrator Insulted.
Washington, Nov. 14. Friction has
arisen between British capitalists and
the republic of Colombia, growing out
of a concession granted by the Colom
bian government to an English com
pany to build a railway through the
state of Antloque, tapping the richest
sections of Colombia. The company
not proceeding with the work, the con
cession was declared forfeited. The
company then presented a claim for
$640,000 damages. Colombia refused to
pay, but consented to arbitrate the
claim. Out of this has grown the pres
Dr. Luhrsen, the German Minister to
Colombia, acted as one of the arbitra
tors, but, as the Colombian press and
public believed him to be favorable to
the ' 1-ingllsh claim, riotous scenes at
tended the meeting of the arbitrators.
Colombian soldiers were stationed at
the Gel-man Minister's house, and It Is
claimed that they assisted the excited
populace In perpetrating Indignities on
the Minister's household, the acts being
confined, however, to noise, threats, and
alleged drunken disorder. As a result
of concerted action In London and Ber
lin, the British Minister at Bogota. Dr.
Jenner, and the German Minister re
ceived Joint Instructions to protest to
President Caro of Colombia. This was
done, and the Colombian government
decided that a public explanation should
be made In the Dlario Official. But this
explanation, signed by the Minister of
Foreign Affairs, is said to have been as
offensive as the preceding events.
No settlement was reached on the ar
bitration, and now urgent efforts are
being brought to bear on the British
foreign office to administer a rebuke
to Colombia which will serve as a re
minder that British investments In that
country must receive full protection.
These efforts come from the interested
capitalists, and it is not known that
Lord Salisbury has yet considered the
advisability of putting in motion the
machinery of the foreign office to pro'

day, when his room was found vacant.
He left a note to Mr. Fox, with whom
he lodged, saying:
"Mr. Fox: My mission is nnisneu.
The Father takes mo away.
( Signed) F. Schlatter."
According to nil of Schlatter's past
statements he was subject to the or
ders of "The Father," and doubtless
he was told last night to arise and go
forth. Mr. Fox came before the crowd
of 3,000 people that had been assembled
Bince 3 a. m.. and told them the start

and were disposed at first to disbelieve
Today Schlatter was to appear be
fore the United States commissioner
as witness against the "blessed" hand

is probably the real reason for the dis
appearance of the man. It was ob

restless under the Increasing excite

craze hud grown beyond his power to
control, and he feared the denouement.

UNDER STRICT RULES.
Monks Who Rarely Speak, I so No Fir
for Heat and No Bed Covering.
European disturbances are forcing
many religious communities to seek
homes on this continent, and the Trap-
pists of Italy are the latest to ar
rive. They are about to found a house
in the Brooklyn diocese under the di
rection of Rev. Ecimumi Obrecht, and
with the approval of Bishop McDon
nell. For the last year the former has
been the guest of the Drumgoole mis
sion, In Lafayette place, while arrang
ing the details of the new establish
ment. The generosity of a New York
er, now living on Long Island. Bern
ard Earl, has enabled the Trappist
tatner to negin tne work at his con
venience. Mr. Earl gave a house and
twenty-seven acres of land at a place
near Hlcksvllle, known as Round
Swamp, which Is of a character to
provide the monks with of opportunity
to show their skill In MBproving land.
It was an ordinary farm, and the house
an ordinary farm building.
The monks will use the house as a
monastery, after making such altera
tions as are needful. Besides follow
ing their own rule, they will keep a
home for aged and Infirm priests and
a place of retreat for those who de
sire to spend a longer or shorter time
apart from the world. This house will
be supplied with members from the
Trappist monastery In Rome known as
the Tre Fontana, where the monks
turned, a swamp Into a habitable lo
cality by planting groves of the
eucalyptus tree, from which they make
a medicine efficacous in malarial fevers.
The Trapnists have been slow to settle
in other countries of late years or.t
slde of Europe. -
They have a monastery In Dubuque
founded by Irlshrr-m from the Irish
Mt. Melleray, and a second In Ken
tucky, founded by German monks. The
severity of their rule has usually con
fined them to a moderate climate, but
a few years ago the French Trappists
started a monastery In the province of
Quebec, and secured dispensations
from seme features of their rule. In
spite of the climate they have man
aged to get along, and will probably re
main In Canada. The principal fea
tures of their rule are perpetual silence
unless In necessity, and then only Is
speech permitted In the presence ot the
abbot; four hours of field work and four
of prayer each day; six hours of sleep;
study or Indoor labor four hours; one
meal a day at which meat Is not al
lowed, and no tires In the monastery ex
cept for cooking.
The monks sleep on a matress with
out covering, never taking off their
habits evcept to take baths. In Can
ada, however, they are allowed to use
fires and to eat a slight breakfast on
account of the severe winters. The
sick may use meat. With all this
strictness they do not want for mem
bers, and their average term of years
Is higher than that of other commun
ities. LESSONS TO SWEARERS.
