mack. of TqW Ii'rt tlnh the com-
nittee oo 1jl ilty to inquire into the
authority W th e xeteetlve branch Of
thbe 5stuVie1t to make such an or-
der-. Mr. O oiack contended that no
sUota authority exists.
Mr. Ca61taok characterized the order
an p pleae of executive leglmlation and
.criticlsed it as "another instance of
executive encroachment upon the pre-
roatures oat codgreas."
He quoted from a 'service pension
bill pending before congreoU to show
that the order had copied Its exact
language. "Why?" Mr. CamaSh ask-
ed, and replied" that It wae because it
had become evdent that no penmsIl
legislation could be gotten throdbh
"Then," he weat n. "the secretary
said we won't tfol with those cattle
up there (meafqin coNrees), but we
will acolmpllsh the same result by
executive order, a simple twist of the
wrilt" .
M. lr Mraker asked If It was not true
that Mr. Cleveland had Issued a simi-
lar order in regard to Mexican pen
slons, but Mr. Carmack Insisted that
the action on Mexican pensions was
the result of legislation and not of an
executive order.
Mr. Carmack admitted, however,
that the first step fxing old age as
an evidence of disability had been
taken by Mr. Cleveland.
"But," he *sald, "that does not help
the case. I admit that the Afrt' viola-
ties of tle law In this respect occurt
red at that time. The order ti that
ease was, however, comparatively roea
sonable and the precedent had be*e
violently. selied upon by. the present
occupant of the white house to extend
the practice,"
Mr.- Meimber, ..obalraiaa of the
"eoomaMtte on pensions, said that the
present practice is to assume disabil
Ity at the age of 6S. He cohtendeq
thit, according to the order, the fact
that a man has reached the age of S2
Is taken only as prima faole evidence
of disability. The effect of the order
would be to advance the age three
Mr. Foraker defended the order as
a praiseworthy one in purpose and
contended that the law gives the see
rotary authority to make rules and
regulations for the enforcement| of
the statute. Hence it was entirely
competent for the secretary to Af age
as a proof of Incapacity. He called at
a proof of inuoapactp. He called at-
tention to the order Issued bY. Judge
Looeren, who wap penasin commlas
aloBer during the administration of
Mr. Cleveland. ixing the age of 65 as
an evideae of disability.
Mr. Foraker said his understanding
of the order la that an ex-soldier does
not necessarily come into a pension
at the age of @,. but that the fact of
age is only an evdential fact which
shifts the burden of proof to the gov-
Mr. Gallinger called attention to the
fact that siuh latitude had been exer-

Result of Strong preteft Made by
United States Consul Miller.
British Flag Ales

An Associated Fress dispatch from
Nlubcwang, under Tuesday's date,
says: On a strong representation
made by United Statqs Consul Miller
- that the civil administrator had invad-
d neutral rights when he ordered the
lowering pf the Amerloan flag from
buildings belonging to American citi-
seas, even though it was done through
the apprehension that the Sag was il-
legally used by Chinese for the put-
pose of reaisting police inspection, the
civil administrator has promised to
duly and in proper form, through the
military, ralse the flag over the build-
ing from which it was removed. 'Ane
British flag, which was ordered taken
down, will also be allowed to remain.
Flag Reholeted.
A correspondent of The London
Times at Nluchwang, cabling Tuesday,
says: "The Russian pollee have apol.
ogised, and have reholasted. the United
States flag over the correspondents'
Disapproved by Germany.
.Aqqording to a Berlin dispatch, the
OGerman press disapproves the step
taken by Russia at Nluohwang, argu-
Ing that it Is contrary to the spirit of
the declarations exchanged between
the powers at the outset of the war
regarding gthe neutrality f'Chinas, and
furnishes Japan excellentt pretext for
landing troops on neutral Chinese soil.
Generally speaking, the Russian action
enhances the apprehensions enter-
tained at Berlin regarding the future
attitude of China.
While It la not supposed -any power
will seriously oppose the Russian de-
claration of martial law. The Berlin
Post points out the large number of
claims for compensation that. will In-
evitably be addressed to the Russian
government by the foreign merchants
residing at Nluohwang. These claims
will probably be supported by diplo-
matic representations.

The United -States gunboat Helena
at Niuchwang has received orders to
proceed for Shanghai. She will take
away all Americans who desire to
leave the city.

Diehenest Offloiial Wreeke One in
Cleveland-Coneern In Boston '
,Makes an Assignment.

The Federal Trust Company, at
Cleveland, Ohio, made an assignnieht
to the Guardian Trust Company Thurs-
The action is stated to have been
taken as a result of the disappearance
of a prominent official of the Federal
Trust Company. Reports are in cir-
culadona that a shortage, has been
found the funds of the concern.
Whple no statement has been filed
as yet by the Federal company, It is
understood it will turn over about $1-.
000,000 In deposits to the assigned.
Its total assets will be about $3,-
000,000. The Federal Trust Company
has a capilIr stock of $1,500,00 It has
a surplus fund of $50,000 and about
$140,000 undivided profits. According
to its last report It had $2,188,362 In
loans and discounts, $45,300 real es,
tate loans, owned $729,000 stocks,
bonds and mortgages. Its last state-
ment showed Individual deposits of
$1,593,328, but officials state the depos-
its were about $1,000,000 at the close
of business Wednesday night.
An agreement wds practically reach-
ad between the directors of the Feod-
eral Trust Company and the Guardian
Trust Company several days ago, pro-
viding for the merging of the two con-
cerns. The disappearance of the oul-
cial of the Federal company, however,
precipitated matters and the directors
decided that an assignment would
probably avoid a run on the bank and
'protect all Interests.

pany was incorporated in 1888, with a

Boston publisher.
The liabilities of the company are
placed at $1.600,000, with nominal as

Between Japanese and Coeeeaks on
Korean Soil as Contained in Re-
port to St. Petgriburg.i

The Japanese legation in London
has received the following official re-
port from Toklo of the fighting be-
tween Japanese and Russian forces
at Cbong-Ju., Korea, on Monday:
On March 28 a portion of our caval-
ry and Infantry forces occupied Chtang
Ju, arter defeating the enemy. The
enemy, who numbered about six hun-
dred men; retreated la the direction of
WiJl. Our casualties were Lieut Ka-
no and four others killed; Captain Ku
ror.aka and twelve others wounded, of
the cavalry force.
There were no casualties among our
Infantry. Two dead bodies were left
by the enemy on the field, but' it ta
reported that some seven or eight
were killed inside the town. Those
were promptly carried off by the ene-
my on horseback or In ambulances,
The Russians were seen conveying in
an ambulance two dead men. appa-
rently officers and bloodstained band-
ages were found scattered around.
The enemy must have sustained
losses at least equal to our own.
A St. Petersburg special says: A
later dispatch from General Misht-
chenko reports that on the authority
of the Inhabitants of Chong Ju, Korea,
the Japanese lost forty men killed, one
hundred men wounded and a number
of horses during the fightHtig there
Monday. The Japanese employed five
hundred Koreans to carry their
wounded to Anju. General Misht-
chenko adds that Captain Stopanoff
also was among the Russians wound-
ed and died Tuesday.
The above, which was dated March
29, was forwarded to the emperor by
General Kuropatkin.


Jap Gives Details of Latest Attempt
to Bottle Port Arthur.
Admiral Togo's recital of the sec.
ond attempt to bottle up the Port Ar-
thur squadron and the sixth attack on
that port was received in Toklo, Ja.
pan, Tuesday, says a special dispatch.
Admiral Togo's report, in part, is as
"The united squadron again left for
Port Arthur last Saturtky. On Sun-
day morning at 3:30 we commenced
preparations for blocking the harbor
entrance. The four steamers which
were to be sunk escorted by a flo-
tilla of torpedo boat destroyers, ad-
vanced to the entrance, facing the ene
my's searchlights. About two miles
from the entrance the bottling up
squadron was discovered by the ene-
my. Exposed to the fire of the for-
tresses on either side and also to
that from the enemy's ships on guard.
and braving these dangers, the four
steamers ran I to the waterway at
the mouth of the harbor. One of the
steamers, the Chyo Maru-anchored
about half a chain from the western
shore of Golden Hill blow itself ap
and sank. The second one, the Au-
kul Maru, passed to the left of the
Chyo Marn and advanced a short dis-
tance when she was struck by a tor-
pedo from the enemy's destroyers.
She sank in that position. The third!
one, the Yahlko Mart. went to the
left of the Pukul Maru and blew her-
self up and sank. The fourth steam.
er, the Yoneyma Marii. reached the
harbor entrance and colliding against
the stern of one of the enemy's torpe-
do destroyers, she managed to reach
the middle passage by paeaing be.
tween the Chyo Maru and Pukul Ma-.
ru. Just at that mpoment one of the
enemy's torpedoes struck and sank
her. Her momentum brought he- to-
ward the left shore and with her bow
toward the left aide ahe sank sidewise.
To have accomplished the work so
far under great disadvantages and 'dan-
gers must be considered a success and
should command admiration. It Is to
Dle regretted, however, that owing to
some space being left between Yahiko
Maru and the Yoneyma, a complete
blpking of the entrance has not been
effected. The vessels engaged In this
work are those which had been en-
gaged In the same work before. It was
by their special request. Only petty
officers and crews were supplanted bFy
new men.
Th. casualties follow: Killed, Com-
mander HIroz and three petty officers;
mortally and seriously wounded, Lieu
tenant SBimada. slightly wounded.
Lieutenant Masukl. Engineer Kurita
and six petty officers and men.
All the remainder of the crews were
safely picked up by our destroyers.'

The Face of the Soreo*ry of Stte'W
Bottloeili Madonna Imbedded in Tie-
sue Paper and the Ineh .Thilk Wood-
en Back Sandpapered Off-The Lay-
or of paint Then Trsneferred Unin-
Jured to Canvas.
A Bottloelli "Madonna," said to be
worth .40,000, but not for sale at any
price, has been saved to Mr. Hay, the
secretary of state, by a resort to a
delicate operation that required per-
slatent work and the xpoat scrupulous
care and watchfulness for a year,
writes the Washington correspondent
of the New York Bun. Another paint-
ing belonging to Mr. Hay, less valu-
able, perhaps, only In that some doubt
has been expressed by experts as to
whether it was the work of Botticelli
or his famous master. Fra Lippo Ulppi,
the Carmelite, has been saved also
through_ Bmilar efforts. If the cost of
this work were added to the worth of
the two paintings their value would
be increased greatly.
Sandro Botticelli, the Florentine
painter, died very early in the six-
teenth century, so that the $40,000
work which Mr. Hay possesses to at
least 400 years old. lippo Lippi died
In 1468. Both works are panels, and
it was through the cracking of the
wood, due partly to age and partly to
the effects of the extremely variable
climate of this part of the country.
that the destruction of these magnifi-
cent produqcs of art, each worth a
prince's ransom, was threatened.
The panel known to be a Botticelli
original sla a Madonna In profile, the
figure full length, surrounded by a host
of cherubims. This was a favorite
study of Botticalli, and Mr. Hay's gem
has all the color which made the Flor-
entine master stand alone among his
competitors. The panel hung for
years upon the wall of the main stalr-
way In Mr. Hay's Washington resi-
dence, facing the spacious entrance
T'he other panel, a smaller Madonna,
developed cracks from the reverse side
that threatened to Increase and in time
break through the painting itself, thus
destroying Its beauty and making Jt,
from the standpoint of art, at least,
a tdtal loss. Blight cracks were ob-
served, also, In the larger painting,
and Mr. Hay, after careful inquiry, re-
solved, in the hope of savlug both mas-
terpieces, to resort to the delicate oper-
ation necessary to insure preservation,
which he had been Informed could be
done by a man In New York.
Mr. Hay made arrangements with
the New Yorker to undertake the
work, but before It was begun the
artist died, and Mr. Hay was obliged
to look elsewhere for a person ac-
quainted with the process, which had
been originated In Europe and success-
fully applied to the preservation of
panel paintings of some of the old mas-
ters. He ultimately found the right
man, whose studio was also in New
York, and to him was Intrusted the
As the smaller panel was in a
greater state of deterioration, one of
the cracks having In fact extended all
the way through from back to front,
until tho painting Itself was effected,
the workman began his delicate com-
mission on it first and, meeting with
success, started upon the larger and
more valuable subject. The object of
the operator was completely to sepa-
rate the painting proper, that is the
paint itself, from the wood upon which
It had been placed 400 years ago, with-
out in any way injuring or permitting
it to be scratched, rubbed, cracked
or bent.
To shave off the paint without injur-
ing the picture was manifestly impos-
sible, for the thin sheet of pigment
would have broken of Its own weight
if once lifted from the backing. It was,
therefore, necessary to attack the back-
ing itself, working from the reverse
side downward through the wood until
the undercoating of the paint was
reached. How this was done is an la-'
toresting story.
Over the painted surface were placed
hundreds of tiny slips of the thinnest
tissue paper, these being held to the
paint by a watery paste with Just
enough adhesive power to make the
tUssue stick. The slips of the first
layer of thaiss were pressed down and
worked so as to conform correctly
to what may be called the paint
wrinkles, for Botticelli knew the art
of making bhis pigment stand out in
relief ridges to accentuate certain
Itnes. More slips of paper, hundreds
of them, were pasted over the first
layer, and the fingers and thumbs of
the operator molded them Into and
over the reliefs and the depressions
which the foundation slips had fol-
lowed. Then more slips, then larger
sheets of the tissue. a great thickness
of them. each carefully placed, pasted
and worked over. This done, the panel
was lifted, reversed and the matrix of
tissue placed upon a prepared founda-

Vast Sums of Money Spent for Lodge
Few persons other than members of
secret societies realize how vast is
the sum of money spent yearly for re-
galia and lodge furnishings. It Is to
be questioned whether even the memt,
bers themselves appreciate the total
reached, since little of the money spent
represents personal disbursements.
Apart from Templar uniforms the
Masonic "clothing" is furnished by
the various bodies. In the blue lodge
a simple white apron is all that Is re-
quired, but these are of fine linen and
cost from $6 to $8 a dozen, at least
two hundred being required to outfit
the Tyler's box. The lodge Jewels
are necessarily of silver and do not
represent a value greater than $50,
while the officers' aprons cost from
$24 to $75 a set Probably a blis
lodge may be established for an out-
lay of $300. In New York and Brook.
lyn alone there are 229 blue lodges.
In the Royal Arch degrees the
apron is more expensive, and the of.
fliers are robed at greater ex.
penae. Each of the 31 chapters prob
ably spends from 8500 to 12000 on re-
galia. The cost to each Knight Tom.
plar varies with the length of his
purse. A uniform may cost only $25,
or it may be made to cost P300. Prob-
ably the Templars spend $1600 a you
upon their uniforms and swords. In
the Mystic Shrine the fez Is the dis.
tingiushing feature. Those who have
the name of the temple embroidered
upon the front cost from $3 to $5
apiece. If they contain a jewel of the
order they cost anywhere between $32
and $125. Those who enter now have
the fez given to them by the temple.
But while the simple fez Is the badge
of a "Noble," the officers have two
sets of robes each; one set being of
genuine Arabic workmanship and
heavily embroidered. As there are 15
or 20 officers, the cost may easily be
placed at $5000. There are fifty ps.-
trolrnen for the floor work, whose coe.-
tumes add another $600 to the budget
at the very least.

City Index, lIose'p-nc-
turqs onte cC
latest 'l-Ihs' .id a style so neat
and so conclusive that it i; a please
ure to'fead it. He begins by quot..
ing, in substance, the following
from the Governor's Lake lity
"Another matter tht )2 4ee to
call your attentlpu to Is this When
I went into offic I -0u6d a deed in
'escrow virtutlly giving' away to
certainF parls a large body of the
Stat ilads,: I promptly caacelled
te ed nd I have.since sold the
fladfor over $200,000."
After explaining thpt he has ex.
,itnIned the records, so as to be sure
Of his ground, the editor recites
the facts that many years. ago the
Legislature granted lands for the
building of the Tallahassee South-
eastern railroad through the coun-
tics-of Leon, Jeffersop, Taylor, La-
fayette and Alachu. to Gainesville;
that the company :'built twenty"
miles of road, and thli 110,000 acres
that had been reserved through
many administrations to aid in se-
curing transportation facilities
through Taylor and Lafayette,
were applied for as a portion of the
land grant; that to place tihe matter
beyond controversy, the board, nn
May 2, 1899, made two deals-one
tor 91,718.28 acres in Taylor
county, the other for 18,389.40
acres in Lafayette county-and
placed said deeds in the First
X'ational Bank of Tallabassee; the
first to be delivered to the company
*when the road reached Perry, and
t.he second when it reached the
-Suwanee river. It was provided
"that the entire road must be com-
pleted and in operation from Talla-
bassee to the Suwanee river within
twq''ye '. '
Tle"t'w"o years expired on May 2,
1891, and the road not having com-
pleted, the deeds were handed by
the bank back to the State and
?1hlen Governor' Jennings be-
came president oi the board that
body not only endorsed the action
of tfhe previous board, but was even
move liberal, agreeing that if the
company would commence and con-
tinue work without stopping and
complete the wbrk to Perry, Taylor
county, as well as Into the city of
Tallahassee, by the 2nd day of May.
A. J?. 1901, the board will deliver
the *deed of conveyance .for 91,-
718.28 acres of land held in reserve
t in Taylor county. As above sta-
t ted, however, the company having
a failed to complete the road to Perry.
the deeds in escrow were very prop'
early returned by the bank, and can-
celled in due course. So much for
the assertion that either board "vir-
tually gave away" the state's land;
and so much for the governor's
claim that "I" cancelled the deeds.
Now comes the choice part of the
5 story, wherein the governor takes
great credit to himself for selling
the land (at $2 per acre). Editor
* Appleyard thus discloses the true
inwardness of the sale: "What
object the governor had in selling
the lands we cannot see. The
money could not go into the tress
ury or help the taxpayer in any
way. It belonged to the internal
improvement fund, and there it re-
malls without helpingany one. The
fund was not in debt, and it had a
large amount already in cash from
the sale. by Governor Jenninugs of
over p200,000 acres of land at 80
cents per acre. Why the sale?
"If money in the fund is what
the governor desired, he lost heavily
by the sale at $2 per acre. In the

t Timep-Union of December 18, 1908.
WSe see a sale of over 50,000 acres
of land in the same cottuty at $7
per acre. So the governor has prob-
t ably lo~at0 O,000 by his unnec-
essary sk. If money was the
desire, tbTlIe of about a half mill-
ion dollars was not encouraging '
The qu ioa naturally arises:
Were 'ot these lands, after all,
"virtully given away'?' A sale at
$2 per acre of land which was then.
or about then, bringing in open
S kmaett per acre, was almost
giving ~bem away." And who did
.tls Jvlng away?" Governor
j inaih it himself answers "I."-
