20 years, Is in jail in Wichita, pending
an Investigation of the circumstances
surrounding the mysterious disappear
ance. Kinney was last seen alive near Be

and the latter is known to have sold
Kinney's outfit. The case In a way
rivals that of Gilbert Gates, who sud
denly disappeared while traveling In
Kansas more plan twenty years ago,
and for whoso murder Alexander Jes

Frederick Kinney's parents were
Quakers who lived near the Nebraska

Wichita, telling him that his son was
in trouble and requesting him to send
i'MiO immediately, the writer signing
"C. M. Jones." Kinney placed the let
ter in the hands of a detective and a.
decoy letter was sunt. The letter was
taken from the postofflce by a man
whose description lltted that of Free
man. He left town without being ap
prehended. The detective traced him
to Abilene, where he was arrested on
a charge of using the mails to de
fraud and returned to Wichita. The
man, who proved to be Freeman, as
serted that ho and young Kinney bad
parted company at Uelolt, where Kin
ney turned his outtlt over to hliu.
Freeman said they had lif-en "boot
legging" and Kinney, fearing arrest,
gave up his belongings and disap
peared. Freemen asserts that be nnd
his father traveled about the country
In the wagon, dually selling the outtlt
after a fruitless search for Klnuoy.
The elder Freeman, who Is a gamblot
by profession, asserts that when' the
proper time comes he can produce
Kinney, but he l erased to make Ills
whereabouts known. Sheriff Sweden

BETTER COAL WANTED
FOR THE WARSHIPS
Major Hyde. Quartermaster at Na
gasaki. Instructed to Look
for a New Supply.
By K lustre Wlro from The Auoiiatcd 1'iesi.
AVashinglon, April 2S. The quarter
masters department of the army has
directed Major John Mo F. Hyde, quar
termaster at Nagasaki, to make every
effort to procure a better coal for the
transports which coal at that place.
The necessity of coaling at Nagasaki
became apparent soon after the United
States took control at Manila. It is
true that coaling could be done from
a collier in Manila bay, but only for
six months iu a year. The remainder
of tho time it is found impossible to get
a ship and collier together with safety.
Arrangements are now made to coal in
San Franci&co and Nagasaki, and no
oftener In Manila than necessary.
Major Hyde ha.s been instructed to as
certain which is' the best coal to be
found in Japan nnd to contract for a
continuous supply for the transports.
Tho Japanese coal is not the best, but
it is found to be tho most economical
that can he used. It costs about ?4 per
ton, while Australian coal taken to
Nagasaki and resolct costs about $12
per ton, owing tu the high duty paid
upon coal by Japan in tho interest of
her own coal fields. The great draw
back to the Japanese coal is the fact
that. It contains too much sulphur, and
Instead of the combustion occurring in
the furnace It often goes into the pipes
and is very destructive to that portion
of the boilers. Much of the repairing
that, has been found necessary to the
army transport has been about the
boilers, which have been damaged by
Japanese coal. At the same time, owing
to tho great cost, of coal brought from
Australia, it is found more economical
to use tho Japanese coal rather than
pay the higher price for the Australian
product. The navy does not use Jap
anese coal. At San Francisco the quar
termaster's department pays the high
est, price for coal. Moat of It reaches
San Francisco as 'ballast, but some
comes from North Pacific ports. Tho
department is now experimenting' with
coal from Utah, and It is believed that
it can be shipped to San Francisco and
sold there cheaper than other coals
which are now purchased there.

An Insurgent Major Killed General

Filipino Leaders That Have Ig

Favors the Society of Mando

Manila, April 29. Captain Wilson
Chase, with a. detachment of the
Twenty-first infantry, on April 0 sur
prised the camp of the Insurgent Clen
eral Cailles at Dugot-Dugot, situated
nine miles northeast of Cavlte, in the
province of Lagiina. Cullies was at
his camp at the time of the American
attack, but managed to escape. Cap
tain Chase's force captured his adju
tant general, live other of his staff
officers, fourteen men, twenty rifles, a
large amount of ammunition and
stores and till the papers and per
sonal effects of the Filipino general.
The Insurgent Major Velo was killed
during the engagement, as were Cor
poral McOlIl and Private Tlpps. both
belonging to Company A, of the Twenty-first
regiment. Several columns of
the American troops continue vigor
ously to pursue General Cailles.
General Cailles recently offered a re
ward of $10,000 for the head of Captain
Kdward N. Jones, Jr., ot the Eighth
Career of Cailles.
For more than a year past Cailles
has commanded the insurgent forces
operating to the east of Bay Lake,
not far from Manila. lie Is said to bo
a. French half caste. He has a repu
tation for vlndlctlveness and cruelty
and Is one of the two or three Fili
pino leaders still in the field who have
clearly Ignored the observances of hon
orable warfare. Tha society of Man-db-Ducats,
whose practice It. was to
assassinate and bury alive those ot
their countrymen who accepted Amer
ican sovereignty whenever the latter
fell into their hands, operated with
the cognizance, If not the support, of
General Cullies. If Cailles were cap
tured It is doubtful If he could claim
immunity for past actions under the
terms of the amnesty. In January ot
this year Cailles offered a reward ot
?1( apiece for the beads of all Ameri
cans brought to hini.

or any complicity In the kidnapping
of IMward rudahy, Jr. Shortly after
!i o'clock tills morning the jury .signi
fied to Judge Haker through a hallll'f
that It was ready to report, having
been out since K.llti o'clock last night.
A small audience of attorneys and In
terested persons bad heard the nawij
and was watting when the twelve men
Died lu. The foreman announced that
the verdict was not guilty.
The Judge had evidently been ex
pecting another verdict and was open
"It Is Impossible for me to under
sland," he said, "how tlie twelve in
telligent men could have agreed upon
such a verdict after listening to the
testimony. The defendant could not
have chosen more wisely if he bad
been selecting his own representatives
and the community could not have
made a more unfortunate selection.
This Jury is discharged without the
compllmenls of the court."
Callahan's attorneys were not pres

sire to thank the -Jurors in his owt:
behalf. This the court refused to per

any thanks. Two other counts still '
exist against Callahan and he was at

doubt, however, whether the state will
bring the cases to trial.

that the $5,000 offered for the appre

the Jurymen there was at no time any
serious difference as to their opinion
of Callahan's Innocence. Three were

Port Jervls, X. A'.. April 2s. Last

murdered a Xew York city family, con

the name of James Xortuu at Pond
