An Appeal Has Been Made to
Governors of the States.
pFERING IN PORTO RICO.
Swift Steamers Have Been Provided to Leave
the Port of New York With Supplies
for the People of Porto Rico.
Washington, Aug. 15—The secretary
of war yesterday afternoon issued the
following appeal to governors of states
for aid for the storm sufferers in Por-
“Sir: I inclose herewith copies of
two telegraph dispatches received last
evening from the governor general of
Porto Rico, by which it appears that
the devastation wrought by the recent
hurricane in that island is even great-
er than was at first supposed. It is
evident that a great multitude of peo-
ple rendered utterly destitute by this
calamity must be fed and cared for
during a considerable period until they
can have the opportunity to produce
foods for themselves. Enormous quan-
tities of supplies of the kinds indicated
by the governor general must be pro-
“The magnitude of the work to be
accomplished leads this department to
supplement the appeal already made to
the mayors of the principal countries
of the country by a more general ap-
peal, and I beg you to ask the peo-
ple of your state to contribute gener-
ously to the rellief of the people of
“Swift steamers have been provided
to leave the port of New York to carry
the supplies directly to Porto Rico as
rapidly as can be collected.
“Contributions should be either in
supplies of the character indicated or
in money in order that the supplies can
be purchased. The supplies should be
sent to Col. F. B. Jones, army building,
foot of Whitehall street, New York
city, in packages plainly marked ‘Porto
Rican Relief,’ and he should con-
sulted as to the time of shipment.
Money should be sent to the National
Bank of North A merica, New York city,
which has been designated as a depos-
itory for the relief fund. Very vespect-
Jy, _ _ ELIHU ROOT,
“Secretary of War.”
Acting Secretary of the Navy Allen
yesterday wrote Secretary Root that
the navy desired to co-operate in every
way it could in rendering assistance to
the storm-stricken people of Porto Rico
and tendering a warship to be placed
at the disposal of the war department
if it was desired to convey supplies to
the island. The offer doubtless will be
accepted, as every available means is
being adopted to hurrry along the
great stock of supplies which is im-
peratively needed. Mr. Allen is in tel-
egraphic communication with several
naval stations with the view of hav-
ing a ship ready as soon as the war de-
pa jrtment wants it.

ry of the navy yesterday received the
following from Admiral Watson at

Big Cotton Crop.
Memphis, Tenn., Aug. 15.—A special
from New Orleans says: Henry M.
Neill, a cotton expert of this city, who
predicted the enormous crops of 1894-
95, 1897-98, and 1898-99, is out with a
forecast indicating that the crops now
maturing will exceed any of these and
may reach the unprecedented total of
12,000,000 bales. In a circular issued
On Aug. 13, 1898, I stated that the
promise for the crop of 1898-99 was
equal or superior to that of 1897-98 in
every state, and vastly better in Texas,
and the outlook, even with somewhat
unfavorable conditions thereafter was
for a crop of 10,500,000 bales assured
with 1,000,000 to l,500,u00 more within
the range of possibilities.
This crop turns out about 11,250,000
bales, in spite of the most severe win-
ter ever known in the south, during
which a vast deal of cotton was lost in
the fields. That it would have reached
11,750,000 and perhaps lz,000,000 but
for the heavy loss is now generally ad-
Texas Flood Sufferers.
Washington, Aug. 15.—Mr. E. S.
Holmes, Jr., an expert of the statistic-
al bureau of the department of agri-
culture, has just completed a report
to Chief Statistician Hyde of that de-
natment, embodying the results of a
tour of the flood-devastated region of
Texas and making a careful estimate
of the damage done, the aggregate of
which he places at $7,414,000.
The report states that the greatest
damage was in McLennan, Falls, Mi-
lam, Robertson, Brazoria, Burleson,
Grimes Washington, Waller, Austin,
Fort Bend and Brazoria counties. The
number of farms submerged is esti-
mated at 8100 ivhich is a total area of
about 1,300,000 acres. Of this area at
the time of the flood there were about
503.000 acres under cultivation, 339,-
000 acres being in cotton, 124,400 acres
in corn, 10,800 acres in sugar cane and
28.000 acres in other crops,'with a to-
tal production in sight equivalent to
Although nearly 90 per cent of all
loss occurred in the destruction or
injury to growing crops the damage to
farm property and the losses of live-
stock, etc., amount to the large sum of
$884,000. The land it damaged by
washing and gulleyir-g to the extent
of over $200,000 but of this loss about
one-half is offset by the increased fu-
ture production necessary from the al-
luvial deposits left by the flood.
Mr. Holmes says the precise effect
of the flood upon this year’s crops is
difficult to estimate. While the crops
over a very large area are practically
destroyed, the effect of the rains on
the upland crops will be highly bene-
ficial and should, he thinks, result in
a large increase in the yield through-
out the entire central part of the
state and so much of the western part
as is under cultivation. He says, how-
ever that a conservative estimate of
the actual destruction includes about
277.000 bales of cotton, representing
at an average price of 4 1-2 cents per
pound about $5,110,000;'4,400,000 bush-
els of corn, worth 20 cents per bushel,
$880,000; sugar cane to the value of
$535,000, and other crops estimated at
$235,000, a total loss to standing
crops of $6,570,000. The addition to
this amount of the loss to farm prop-
erty raises the total to $7,741,000, or
about $74 per capita of the population
of the district, which is estimated at
100.000 negroes largely predominat-

Washington, Aug. 15.—The navy de-
partment yesterday received the fol-
lowing letter from Admiral Dewey:
United States Flagship Olympia,
Trieste, Austria, Aug. 1., IS??.—Dear
Sir: Leaving Trieste to-day, I desire
to bring to the attention of the de-
partment the uniform courtesy and
kindly feeling shown not only to me
but to the ship and its whole personnel,
as representing our country, by the of-
ficials and people of Trieste and Aus-
tria. The Austrian minister of marine
arrrived from Vienna to welcome us
officiallly and remained several days
awaiting us, but was obliged by his
duties to return before our arrival. The
naval and military officials stationed
here have been most cordial.
The people have also exhibited a
most friendly feeling toward our na-
tion, and have visited the ship in large
numbers. It is estimated that 40,000
people attended the funeral of Rask,
an electrician, who died in the hospi-
tal, and they showed many marks of

r Recruiting Among Volunteers.
Cape Town, Aug. 15.—It is reported
that a former officer of the British
army is now recruiting among the
volunteers here with the object of
forming an irregular signal corps for
the protection of Bechunanland.
Gen. Sir William FrancLa Butler, in
command of the British troops in
South Africa, against whom there is
much ill feeling because of his alleged
Boer sympathy, will be transferred,
it is understood, to England.
Manila, Aug. 15.—A force of United
States troops from Quingua, four miles
northeast of Malolos, and from Bali-
uaga, near Bustos, about six mile3
northeast of Quingua, encountered a
body of insurgents estimated at about
500, half way between Bustos and Quin-
gua. In the engagement that ensued
the Filipinos were severely punished
and scattered. The Americans lost
one man killed.
The insurgent forces is believed to
have been under the command of Gen.
Pio del Pilar, and to have had in view
tearing up the railway at Bocave and
Bigaa, about three miles northeast of
A battalion of the twenty-first in-
fantry were sent to those points yester-
day afternoon to strengthen the rail-
way guard and to reconnoiter the coun-
try in the direction of Norzaguay, on
the Bustos road.

Burned to Death.
Comanche, I. T., Aug. 15.—Sunday
evening Miss Fannie Pigg, the 14-
vear-old daughter of A. C. Pigg, who
lives three miles northeast of town,
started to make a fire in the cook-stove
by using coal oil. The oil ignited caus-
ing the can to explode and burned her
to death. Her mother’s hands were
badly burned trying to save her
daughter. By prompt arrival of the
neighbors the house was kept from
Manila, Aug. 14.—A reconnoisance
Saturday by the troops of Gen. Samuel
B M. Young’s brigade, with the ob-
ject or discovering the whereabouts of
the enemy near San Mateo, northeast
of the San Juan reservoir, about ten
miles from Manila, resulted in the oc-
cupation of San Mateo.
The American loss was thres killed
and thirteen wounded, including a
lieutenant of the twenty-first infantry.
The Americans approached San
Mateo in three columns. Major Cro
nin, with fourteen men of the twenty-
fifth infantry, advanced from Navo-
liches, five miles west of San Mateo.
Capt. Rivers, with a hundred men
of the fourth cavalry, and Capt. Par-
ker, formerly lieutenant colonel of the
twelfth New York volunteer regiment,
with 280 men of the twenty-first and
twenty-fourth infantry, and the fourth
cavalry, approached m two columns
from the south.
Major Cronin experienced many diffi-
culties arising from the condition of
the country, and failed to effect a
junction with Capt. Rivers west of
San Mateo, as had been planned.
Capt. Rivers, advancing, took an
outpost of the enemy, two miles south-
west of San Mateo. He then encoun-
tered strong resistance among the
hills, the enemy firing from excellent
Having failed to connect with Major
Cronin, and seeing that the town was
already occupied by the Americans,
Capt. Rivers withdrew, covering his
withdrawal by a heavy volley. He
lost a sergeant killed.
Capt. Parker, on advancing, found
the enemy strongly entrenched on the
far side of some rice fields, about a
mile wide and covered with deep mud.
Pushing forward rapidly he routed
the Filipinos after forty minutes’
fighting, and then continued the
march upon San Mateo, which he en-
tered without serious resistance about
1:30 o’clock in the afternoon.
Major Cronin entered the town
about 4:30. The Americans still oc-
cupy the place. Our men were ex-
hausted by the heavy marching.
Twenty-three of the enemy are
known to have been killed.
This is the first action in which Col.
Burt’s colored troops participated.
They behaved well, their leaders hav-
ing difficulty in holding them back.
Gen. Young accompanied Capt. Par-
ker’s column and was under fire
throughout the engagement. It is es-
timated that the enemy numbered be-
tween 300 and 400 men.
Vancouver, B. C., Aug. 14—The
trouble in the Samoau islands did not
end with the departure of the repre-
sentatives of the powers from Apia,
although they confidently thought that
they had restored peace and brought
the rival factions together. F. S.
Meade, who arrived here on the Miow-
era after a trip throvgh the islands of
the South seas, says the two factions
were still at war very shortly after
the commissioners left.
Suffering from Hunger.
Seattle, Wash., Aug. 14--A private
letter from Capt. Slamm of the reve-
nue cutter Grant, now with the seal-
ing patrol in the Behring sea, re-
that the inhabitants of Attorn island,
numbering twenty-three men and fifty
women and children, were found by
him in a pitiable condition from cold
and hunger. Many of the children
were partially naked and the women
were but a little better off.
The Grant furnished the inhabitants
rations and clothing. They have a
good supply of fish, roots and berries.
Attou island has in time past been
famous as a -source of blue fox skins,
and fortunes have been made in the
traffic, but the traders and not the na-
tives, have made the money. The foxes
have been all killed and the popula-
tion is diminishing. The remainder
are quite contented with their lot,
and cling to the bleak-frozen island,
which hardly affords them a means of
sustenance, and which is often the
scene of furious earthqaukes and
ML Raul Roulde Arrested.
Paris, Aug. 14.—M. Poul de Roulerte,
founder of the League of Patriots for
the Anglomen district of Charente, was
arrested Saturday morning at his es-
tate at Croissy, near Paris. A num-
ber of members of the Anti-Semite and
Patriot leagues were also arrested yes-
A second official note issued yester-
day morning reads as follows:
“A certain number of arrests are
made as the result of a magisterial in-
quiry and by virtue of article 89 of the
penal code, regarding a conspiracy or-
ganized for the purpose of accomplish-
ing a change in the form of govern-
ment. The persons implicated belong
to the groups of the royalist youth and
the Patriotic and Anti-Semitic leagues.
At the trial of the Neullly barracks af-
fair acts relating to that incident alone
were used as the basis for the prose-
cution, but searches were then made
and documents were seized which led
to the discovery of an organization
dated back to July, 1898, and of a plot
to seize the government by force. The
documents leave no room for doubt,
either in regard to the existence of the
plot or as to its chief actors therein.
After very close watch organized proof
was obtained that the same groups
were preparing for a fresh attempt at
an early date, the proof being such as
to. enable the disturbances to be avoid-
ed by immediate measures. The inves-
tigation of the affair is entrusted to
M. Fabre, magistrate. De Roulede was
taken into custody by French gen-
darmes and was driven to Paris. On
his arrival here he was incarcerated
in the Conciergerie prison.”
The arrest of M. Marcei-Habert is
The police have closed the offices of
the Patriotic league, which are now
guarded by gendarmes.
When an attempt was made to arrest
M. Guerin, president of the Anti-Sem-
ite league, he refused to surrender and
barricaded himself in the house. He
says he is prepared to hold out for
three weeks, having a good stock of
food and firearms.
The doors and windows of his resi-
dence are barricaded and M. Guerin
announces that he will blow up his
house before he surrenders.
On the application of M. Fabre fresh
searches of various houses were made
yesterday morning, including the head-
quarters of the anti-Semites, where
only unimportant papers fere seized.
A number of additional arrests of
unknown persons have been made In
connection with the conspiracy.
Altogether sixteen members of the
Anti-Semite and Patriotic leagues and
the young royalists have been arrested.

Maitre Eaborl Shot.
Rennes, Aug. 14.—Maitre Labor;
left his house alone for the court at
about 6 o’clock this morning. His
residence is situated in the suburbs oi
the town, about a quarter of an hour’s
walk from the Lycee, the route being
along a solitary road beside the river
Vilaine. He had reached a point hall
way on his journey when two men,
who had evidently been lying in wait
for him, rushed out of a narrow lane
and one of them fired a single shot
from a revolver. The murderers were
only a couple of yards behind their
victim and the bullet struck Maitre
Labori in the back. The wounded man
uttered an agonized cry and fell flat
on his face. The murderers) immedi-
ately fled through the lane from which
they had emerged and both escaped.
At 7:30 o’clock it was announced that
the bullet had entered the stomach;
that there was no outward bleeding,
and that the physicians believed that
M. Labori will die from the wound.
Rennes, Aug. 14.—A later story has
it that Maitre Labori was shot in the
temple by a man who fired a revolver
at him outside the court, and that the
miscreant was arrested.
Cape Haitien, Aug. 14.—1Twelve hun-

toward completion. The first was at
the census bureau between Acting Di-

and the geographer and the Cuban
commissisoners. They discussed the
tentative schedules submitted, which
were subsequently ordered printed
with a number of alterations at the in-
stance of the Cubans, though still sub-
ject to revision. Tabulating machines
were also inspected. Yesterday

retary Meiklejohn, Acting Director
Wines and Chief Hunt of the popula-
tion section of the census were in con-

and purpose of the United States are
to make the Cubans self-governing, a
condition which, when reached, will

dispatch from Santo Domingo con-
firms the cable intelligence telling af
the spread and significance of the rev-
olution throughout the Dominican re-
public. Prominent men in civil and
military circles, it appears, are tak-
ing the field with the understanding
that Jiminez is the prime mover and
that he will shortly arrive there from
Cuba with munitions of war. Among
his military adherents, bringing arm-
ed followings including regular sol-
diers, were the well known Gens. Ram-
on Pacheco and Pablo Reyes, who are
advancing westward by forced march-
es for the purpose of cutting off Monte
Christi from reinforcements, and to
form a Junction with the insurgent
forces from Haiti, thus opening a way
for the Jiminez expedition. Undoubt-
edly the popularity of the revolution-
ists is due to the use of the name of
Gomez, and should he decline the pres-
idency or Jiminez finallly oppose his
election, prominent leaders are already
considering the alternative of calling
a plebiscite in order to ascertain whe-
ther the country would not prefer to
renew the vote of 1871 for American
annexation or an American protector-
ate rather than elect another dictator,
thus securing peace and prosperity.
