Who Knew Frank Christian.
A letter was received by Miss Mar
jot 1q Towderly, of this city, yester
day from her brother, Joseph Powder
iy, formerly of this city, but who Is
now In Eagle Pass, Texas. In the let
ter he tells of tho death of a tele
phone lineman down there, who died
suddenly. He was buried there, nnd
aftet wards a search of his effects re
ealed the fact that he was a sol
dier In the Spanish-American war;
and his dlschaige papers, which he
art led with him, Rave his name as
Prink Christian and his place of en
listment as Sunbury, Pa.
The superintendent of the telephones
i ompany requested that Pennsylvania
papers should publish nn account of
Ills death, so that his iclntlvcs, if he
has any, should bo made aware of tho
Place where Christian lies burled. Sun
bury papers are especially lcqucstcd
to copy this notice.

Washington, Jan. 24. Witness Cun
ningham gave evidenre at the after
noon session. He sold Cadets Hill,
Haskell and Kensel suffered from haz
ing. Hill "qualified on poach pie" and
nfterward suffered from convulsions,
requiting mcdlclal assistance to be
summoned. Haskell suflered the same
night as MacArthur and witness heard
Haskell had convulsions. Medical as
sistance was not called, but Haskell
was worked over for some time. Ken
sel went Into convulsions.
The witness heard that a cadet had
choked Kensel to prevent his uttering
crier. Tills Information came from a
cadet otllc-er in the academy. Cun
ningham tecelved only minor hazing
ut one time "ending" for nhout thirty
minutes. Mr. Dtiggs biought out that
Cadet Howze also had ben hazed into
The witness was handed a list of
cadets and specified a number reputed
to bo severe hazets. One of the ca
dets, he Bald, had been "called out"
and his law broken.
The witness was ordeted at one time
to haze Cadet Caruthers and wrapped
eight blankets about him, giving him
a "sweat bath" in uniform, lasting half
an hour. Cadet Glmberling had told
mm mat wnen he wns hazed nearly to
fainting the hazer said he wanted to
make the man faint. Zell had done
from 460 to BOO "eagles," "broke the
record" and Crown was given guard
Commenting on a statement by Gen
eral Ludlow that "college hazing and
West Point hnzlng" were the same, the
"I refute that statement. I went
through college before I went to West
Point and I know theie Is nothing In
the colleges like the hazing at West
He described hazlnc as nothing Rhnri
of torture, cxulslte torture. He-gave a
graphic account of the agony suffered
in certain forms of hazing which fairly
sent a shudder through tho listeners.
Men were hung on bars, their feet up
so that when they dropped from ex
haustion the knees struck on the wood
en floor several feet below. The faint
ing man was again hoisted up and
again repeatedly dropped from exhaus
tion, sti Iking on his knees He gave
in details the hotrors of the "sweat
bath" and related the suffetings of
MacAithur from this foim of tortute.
Cunningham said tho object ot "calt
Ing out" was to place a tt alned upper
classman ngalnst an untrained lower
classman. The result was Inevitable
In conducting a fight the purpose was
to cut up the face of tho lower class
man before knocking him out. An up
per classman had said to tho witness
that a certain fight was not correct be
cause tho lower classman's face wns
not cut up sufficiently. Ho was told
also of a lower clnssmun being In tho
hospital for a week after a light, and
then his face was said to be a "sight
to see." When on guatd ono time,
Cunningham wns told by tho coipoial
of the guaid "not to see n fight" then
about to occur. Tho witness snld ca

by act of congtess, wcie "bullied und

Ho mentioned Cadet Igleslas, related
to Piesldent Igleslas, of Costa Rica, ns

cadet. Cunningham said he wtote to

becausa he expected remuneration for

he had not mutated the facts through
indignation, Mr. Wanner said.
"Then you nie to be congratulated
on maintaining a serenity of mind
while narrating facts which cannot

CHINESE REFORMERS' PETITION

Vancouver. IJ. C, Jan. 24. Flvrt

instatement of the young emperor of
China to full power have beon sent by
Wn Cum Yow, secretary of the Chinese
Rcfoim association of Canada and the

South American Tea to Be Represent
ed at the Pan-American.
A South American shrub called yer
va or yerba, or yerba mate, is des
tined to attract considerable attention
In the near future. From Its leaves a
tpn is infused which possesses tho
properties of Invigorating without Ine
briating, to which may be ndded thei
sustaining properties usually attri
buted to coffe But llttlo known or
iifed, except locallv, It Is eo highly
recommended by those who know Its
value that great expectations hav
bren raised as to Its ultimate useful
ness. The plant Is a small evergreen
slnub of the holly family. Terbal Is
the native name for the places whern
It Is found growing wild along th
Paraguay river. Natives have for
centuries prepared the tea by gent
ly toasting thei green leaves until dry
enough to grind to a powder. Thl
Is clone by preparing a bed by pound
ing with wooden mallets a patch of
Kiound about six feet In dlametei.
Around this, n fire Is built In a circle,
and the leaves placed on the ground
within the circle of tire. When dry
cnouglt the leaves urc pounded to the
inquired fineness in mortars former
bv punching holes Itf the earth which
have been rammed hard and smooth.
In some section, a second roasting Is
done on poles with the fire underneath.
In any manner considerable care Is
necessary In older to develop tho
at tuna to the fullest extent.
Methods of cultivation have beeen
adopted by the Jesuits and the quality
ot the leaf much improved thereby.
Roasting is done In iron pan set in
bilck woik, nnd the grinding) done by
machineiy which greatly Improves tho
quality of the tea.
The fit st systcmatlo attempt at cul
tivation and preparation of tho yerbr
mnte on a large scale Is now under
way. A company has been formed at
Asuncion, Paraguay, with a capital of
JlOO.l'OO. Trospects seem good to nmko
nn Imomnse business of the proper
growing and marketing of mate, as
many people think It should hold a
place In the markets of the world
equal to tea or coffee. Others say tho
tnste must be ncqulied, llko eattng
olives, as few peoplo like It when mak
ing Its acquaintance for the first time.
However this may be, visitors to tha
Pan-American Imposition will havo

OUR NEW POSSESSIONS.
Their Pi-oductions, Needs nnd Re
sources Shown, at Buffalo.
Tlie United States government Is
making1 arrangements properly to rep
ipsptjt Cuba, Porto Hlco, the Philip
pines, Haw-all, Guam and Tutulia at
the P.in-Amerlcan exposition. Most of
us have had very little opportunity to
study the resources and needs of these
places. The exposition will offer the
(list nppottuulty to niako their ac
quaintance under very favorable aus.
pices. A building Is In course of con-stj-uctlon
which fotms ono of tho tri
angular groups arranged by the gov
ernment. This building- Is ICO feet
squat e, tastefully decorated In keeping
with the general plan of the exposition.
The idea, nf grouping these new pos
sessions by themselves is an effective
one nnd the general publln will natur
ally aKMH-late tlie different possessions
us being historically connected.
Theso possessions broaden our lati
tude by adding tho tropical and semi
tropicnl legions. It seems proper now
that we should set mbout their sys
tematic development. Tea, coffee and
spices may be grown in these coun
tries in abundance Coeoanut copta

ground where tho fruit is grown In
stead of being shipped to France, an

the sowielgu people of the United
Htatcs to do Is to study tho auostton.
This may be followed by careful, sys
tPiimtlii Improvements lu the many
directions that will be suggested. The
Pan-American exposition, by this ex
tensive exhibit, will start the ball mil
Ing. There seems little doubt that thn
momentum thus gained will be foi
lowed up to the advantnuR of every
country In the group.
