The Standard Union from Brooklyn, New York (2024)

1 THE DAILY STANDARD UNION: BROOKLYN, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 11, 1899. NOT A CANDIDATE He Declines Re-election as Colonel of the Thirteenth Regiment. An Outsider Is Likely to Be Agreed Upon. The announcement that an order had been issued for the election of a Colonel in the Thirteenth Heegiment, made in the Standard Union on Tuesdays of this week, came R.S EL surprise to a number of the officers of regiment, including, it is said, some supporters of Lieut. then Col.

George D. Russell, who is an aspirant for the position. In fact, it is spoken as having been "sprung" on the regiment, and it has evidently caused no little dissatisfaction. There weer many who wished for the return their old commander, Col. Wm.

Leroy Watson, and they held out naginst the selection of any other candidate. They felt that Watson had been unjustly dealt with at the Instance Adiutant General Tillinghast. and were earnest in their deto see him vindicated. sire, "Watson feeling'! in the reorganized regiment was strong. but the Russell "faction" seemed to be active and not inclined to compromise--at least no compromise had been effected up to the time Gen.

McLeer's order for the election was issued. Both sides seemed firm. The following letter was received by one of Watson's most ardent supporters last night: Long Island City, N. Nov. 10, 1899.

My Dear reflection I have decided to withdraw whatever consenti I may have given for the use of my name in connection with coloneley of the Thirteenth Regiment at the present time, and I hereby authorize you to so inform my friends in the regiment, and at, the same time please express to them my thanks for the honor and consideration they are willing to extend to yours, (Signed), W. L. WATSON. Capt. Sydney Grant.

This letter creates a new situation. The Russel people still insist upon their candidate, urging various reasons why he should be advanced. to the coveted place, while his claims are as strenuously opposed by those who urge as many reasons against it. That is the situation to-day. The feeling is that the only hope of agreement is on some good outsider.

The names of four such candidates who are deemed eligible have been considered, and before the actual polling, begins one these will be agreed They are Col. David E. Austen, who has twice commanded the Thirteenth Regiment; Col. William H. Hubbell, who succeeded Col.

Eddy in command of the -seventh Regiment Volunteers in Porto Rico: Col. Edward E. Britton, who organized and commanded the 114th Regiment, and William J. Harding, of the "Old Thirteenth." GOLDEN ANNIVERSARY. liam, Tiffany.

OCEAN STEAMSHIPS. CELEBRATED LAST EVENING BY MR. AND MRS. CHAPMAN. Mr.

and Mrs. John H. Chapman celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of their wedding last evening at their home, 538 Willought: avenue. The parlors were profusely and tastefully decorated with hyacinths, chrysanthemums, palms and rubber plants, forming an appropriate setting with the myriads of lights, for the handsomely gowned and stylish gathering. On a tale were displayed the many presents.

The occasion was made especially interesting by the fact that yesterday was the seventy-first birthday of Mr. Chapman, who is Mrs. Chapman's senior by six years. The two were married in 1849, and Mr. Chapman has the distinction of being one of the old "Forty-niners," having, short13 after his marriage, sailed to California that famous year.

years of adventure in the South Pacific intervened before he returned and brought Mrs. Chapman from her home in New London to Brooklyn. It was at this time that Mr. Chapman entered the Sandy Hook pilot service, in which his brothers and father had been active for years. He has taken part in the saving of lives from shipwrecks, and has had his ship sunk under him in collision four times.

Today he is hale and hearty, and as vigorous as a man of 45. Mr. Chapman is a ilfe member of Stella Lodge, F. A. M.

S. J. and John K. and Harry T. Chapman, were present and assisted in receiving the guests, as were also three other pilots, retired, who with Mr.

Chapman form the quartet that remain of the twenty-eight that were in. the service forty -five years ago. During the evening a string orchestra rendered selections, and an elaborate supper was served. Among the guests were Mr. and Mrs.

Reiff, who was fined in the racing here yesterday for non- compliance with rules, was to-day fined 25 pounds for not going to the post at the proper time. FAMINE THREATENS KIMBERLY CITIZENS (Continued from First Page.) to advance from Durban with a strong column for the relief of Gen.

White's army. It is now expected that a great battle will take place within a week in the vicinity of Colenso, where the country is particularly adapted for the favorite taotics of the Boers. They hold all of the mountain passes, and have diligently fortifled their chosen positions, and have at their command many more big guns than the British thought it was possible for them to have when the war began. TROOP SHIPS ORDERED TO DURBAN. LONDON, Nov.

is reported that the troop ships, were expected to have arrived at Cape Town before this are on their way to Durban direct, and that a powerful relief expedition will be organized there, to move toward Ladysmith. Some the troop ships, however, may' land' their men at Pert Elizabeth and some at East London operate legainst the Boers in Cape Colony, though it is probable that the majority of those intended for this purpose will be disembarked at Cape Town, whence De Aar, the British base, may be more easily reached. BULLER TO HAVE 95,000 MEN BY CHRISTMAS: With the additional division announced by Wolseley at the Lord Mayor's banquet yesterday, Ben. Buller's forces will aggregate about 95,000 men by Christmas. Orders for the mobilization of the necessary reserves for the supplementary division were issued last evening.

The men will join between Nov. 13 and Nov. 20. NEWS HELD BACK. It is' believed that the War Office received further dispatches last evening, but nothing has been given out.

It is said that Gen. Buller never expected to begin the campaign before Christmas; and it now looks as thought this will be the case. Certainly no artillery can reach Durban before Nov. 14, and, without addition guns, an advance from Esteourt would be impossible. At a banquet in the City of London yesterday the Duke of Cambridge, speaking on the war, said: "We ought never to have allowed ourselves to be in the position in which the outbreak of war found us.

I could cry over the valuable lives which might have been spared had we been better prepared." MORE TROOPS START FOR THE CAPE. LONDON, Nov. troopship Bavarian sailed from Queenstown last evening for the Cape, carrying the Connaught Rangers, the First Battalion of the Royal Dublin Fusiliers, and a contingent of miscellaneous troops, altogether over 2,090 men, and a large quantity of stores.

The reservoir south of the town was taken by the Boers. The wounded at Kimberly are doing well. ANGLO-AMERICAN ENTENTE. CHOATE SAYS IT MAKES FOR UNIVERSAL PEACE AND PROSPERITY. EDINBURGH, Nov.

Choate was chief guest and principal speaker at annual dinner of the Sir the Walter Scott Club last night. He was received with enthusiasm. Sir Herbert Maxwell, who presided, made a reference to "the friendship that seals England and America." exact words of that part of Mr. Choate's speech 'relating to the bond between Britain and America were as follows: "I thank you for the cordial reception you have accorded me. I take credit for that for my country, not for myself, Truly, your country and mine are connected by bonds of sympathy which were never stronger or closer than at this very hour.

"Little did Dandie Dinmont dream when he remarked is thicker than that was giving two great nations a ten watchword for the exchange of their love and greeting eighty years afterward. I assure you that Lord Salisbury's words, uttered last night at the Lord Mayor's banquet, will meet a quick and hearty response on the other side of the Atlantic. "Our own great writers said 'peace hath her victories not less renowned than and this iron-clad friendship that now prevails is her last greatest victory. It means peace not merely between your country and mine, but among all the nations of Europe, and that ineans an advance in civilization to promote prosperity and welfare not of the Anglo-Saxon race alone, but of the whole human race." The rest of the speech was made up of comparisons, often humorous, between the American and the Scot, and of a serious eulogy of Sir Walter Scott." The response to 1 the toast was made by Andrew Lang. CAPE TO CARIO RAILROAD.

AGREEMENT SIGNED PROVIDING ROUTE FOR RHODES' BIG LINE. BERLIN, Nov. agreement has been signed and approved, in behalf of Germany and the British South Africa Company, binding the company not to continue its railroad to the west coast from Rhodesia, south of the fourteenth degree, except from a point on the AngloGerman frontier, Germany also agrees not to construct a railroad north of the fourteenth degree to the west coast until the railroad is constructed south of that degree through German Southwest Africa. Afterward Germany signed an agreement permitted Mr. Rhodes' Cape to Cair'o telegraph line to carried through East Africa, in accordance with provisions recited the Reichstag in March.

The above agreement means that Germany intends that any westwardly extensions of the Rhodesian lines shall connect with the proposed lines in German East Africa, probably starting from Swakop, near Walsh Bay, which will be a much nearer route from England to Rhodesia than by way of Cape Town. THE RIDPATH- MAKER WORLD'S HISTORY. "The road of the book collector leads but to the bankrupt's grave," said a man, who was himself a bibliomaniac 'of the most pronounced type: Granting this truism in the abstract, still the lovers of books who have kept in touch with the progressive business 'methods of John Wanamaker, as exemplified in the immense book department of the New York store, cannot fail to see that the acquiring of an extensive library is well within the means of even a very light purse, and that the ultimate end of the book lover need not of necessity be the "bankrupt's grave." The rapidity with which, in these days, our country is making history has reawakened public interest in not only national, but international, affairs, and to the great reawakened public is now offered a short path to knowledge. A truly royal road to learn-! ing is opened, through the efforts of Dr. Ridpath, the eminent historian, whose "History of the World" embraces the entire history of mankind from the earliest dynasty, 4200 B.

down through all the shifting scenes of history, to the Philippine rebellion, has just been completed. ed. A new volume has been added in which famous author rewrites the history of the last ten years, and gives a faithful, suecinct and dramatic recital of these last two years, of such immense importance not only to the American people, but to foreign nations. One great and almost unusual charm about this work of Dr. Ridpath's is the absolute sim: plicity of style and the clearness and perspicacity with which essential facts are stated.

There is no circumlocution, no beating about the bush. If you wish to know, for instance, where Admiral Dewey was on the 25th of last July you are told at once; you are not requested to look under Philippines or Manila. The information supplied is just what the busy men and women of to-day want, and it is given in just the definite and clear-cut manner that is sure to be appreciated. The index system used is especially well adapted for its purpose. It is, in truth, a guidepost on the road to learning.

This invaluable work is complete in nine massive volumes, handsomely bound, with about 7,000 pages, 4,000 illustrations, and a lavish profusion of maps, charts and tables. The engravings are exceptionally fine, and the charts show in the simplest style imaginable the lines of descent of the great races of mankind, and the simultaneous and successive historical events. By becoming a member of the Wanamaker History Club, which is achieved simply by the payment of the initiation fee of $1, you may at once receive this entire set of sumptuous volumes, and the future payments of $2 monthly for some months will not make serious inroads on any one's capital. The author of this invaluable work is a Western man, having been born in Indiana in 1840, he was educated in the Indiana Asbury University, and after graduating with honor in 1863, he became professor of languages Baker University, Kansas; in 1867 he was called to the chair of English literature at his alma mater; in 1874 he published a history of the United States, which was followed In 1876 by a much more comprehensive work on the same subject called "The Popular History of the United States;" later on he published his great work, "The History of the World and Great Races of Mankind." This work evinces careful scholarship and erudition. Dr.

is very well known to-day as a lecturer." HER TRIAL TRANSFERRED. At the request of the District Attorney trial of Mrs. Nora Jeffrey for manslaughter in the second degree has been' transferred from the County Court to the Supreme Court. Mrs. Jeffrey wag indicted for killing her father, who was found in his room with his head smashed in with an ax.

President of Health Board Would Diminish Them By Regulating Sales. Prevalence of This Method of SelfDestruction.

President Murphy of the Board of Health has begun a crusade against the promiscuous sale of carbolic acid, which is now so easily procured, and has communicated with Corporation Counsel Whalen with the end in view of placing almost prohibitory restrictions in the way of its sale by druggists. Col. Murphy said to-day: "I am determined to stop the indiscriminate sale of carbolic acid in this city, and I will personally undertake to punish the next pharmacist who sells that poison to any person intent on committing suicide unless such retailer complies fully with the law as laid down in the Penal Code and the Laws of 1897, chapter 378. "I shall not rest until I have an ordinance passed which shall prohibit the sale fthe acid without a physician's prescription." In year 1898 out of 428 suicides 152 "the used carbolic acid, more than 35 per cent. During the first nine months of the preeent year 127 persons ended their lives by the use of the deadly poison and a hundred others attempted suicide but were saved prompt action on the part of the hospital surgeons.

These figures show why Col. Murphy wants the sale of the poison restricted. COMMODORE. PERKINS DEAD. FLAGS AT HALF-MAST AND GUNS FIRED AT NAVY YARD.

The flags will remain at half-mast until sunset this evening.

POSTMASTER WILSON HOME. Postmaster Wilson was back at his desk to-day after a short business trip to Washington. One reason for his journey was the extension of the trolley mail service. The Brooklyn Rapid Transit Company has offered to furnish 16-foot cars and service for 10 cents a mile, and it is thought the offer will be accepted. New unloading tracks are to be built from Washington street, between the General Post Office and the Columbia Theatre, with a corrugated iron shed to protect the mail transfers.

FINANCIAL NEWS. The stock market was irregular at the opening, with a few scattered gains in response to the better tone in London and continued buying for arbitrage account. Just prior to the publication of the bank statement the whole list began to weaken. Among those which fell 2 to 3 points was Sugar, Tobacco, Tennessee Coal Iron, Peoples Gas, Manhattan Railway, Metropolitan Street Railway- and some specialties.

The general railway list lost a point or more. After the bank statement there was some covering of shorts and Sugar was especially erratic, finally rallying a point above the lowest. The unfavorable reports of Manhattan and Pacific Mail Steamship Company was the only other news having a bearish influence. The market closed unsettled and Irregular, but with numerous rallies from the lowest prices. In Governments 5s were per cent.

Policeman Catches a Man In Back Yard Next Door. While Policeman John Carroll, of the Tenement House Squad, Manhattan, was returning to his home, at 845 Bedford avenue, at 3:30 o'clock this morning he heard screams coming from the house at 848 Bedford avenue, directly across the street. There he found the tenants in a state of excitement.

Cries of "Murder!" Burglars!" "Police!" issued from every floor, and soon white-robed figures glided stealthily through the halls. Carroll learned that burglars had entered the house and had made an effort to enter the apartments of William WrenA large bulldog, hearing the footsteps of intruders, began barking furiously, which aroused all the occupants of the house. The policeman made an examination of the premises, but failed find anyone. Hearing a noise in the next yard, he jumped over the fence, and caught Robert Belatz, 35 years old, of 46 Franklin avenue, crouching in the corner of a shed. He dragged him out and asked him what he was doing there.

By taking the course he did in the Philippine war the President only followed the lines laid out for him by Congress, and had he not done so he would have made himself liable to impeachment." The above statement shows that Mr. Wilson has been advised to end 'his opposition to the organization, and it also indicates that he is doing so.

It cat not be learned who filed a against his course, but it is generally supposed that Senator Platt. figured in it somewhere. He probably told those in authority at Washington that Mr. Wilson was endangering the succees of the party here in Brooklyn next year and suggested that he be "called off." The Postmaster has consistently opposed Messrs. Atterbury and Dady when they were managing the local organization, and has been unfriendly towards Lieut.

-Gov. Woodruff for a long time. The strongest opposition developed by Mr. Wilson was through A Assistant Postmaster Taylor in the Twenty-nfth ward. A lively fight has been going on there for many months, the Taylorites are openly charged with being largely for the small majority received by Assemblyman Brennan.

The fight for control of the Sixteenth Assembly District has been hot from time to time. Now that Mr. Wilson have given in, his lieutenants will have to do likewise. This will doubtless mean that Mr. Taylor will surrender to Naval Officer Sharkey, and that the latter will have things his own way from now on.

The fact that the future promises to be one of perfect harmony is pleasing to Republicans generally. Lieut. -Gov. Woodruff appreciates the work which his private Harry Bates, did in Brooklyn' during the recent campaign to further "the success of the Republican party. Mr.

Bates, a resident of Renssalaer, is intimately acquainted with the political situation in this for that reason was able tb assist Mr. Woodruff a great deal in outlining campaign work and executing it. He was constantly with his chief, and cared for many details which Mr. Woodruff would not willingly have placed in another's hands. The campaign committee also feels grateful to Mr.

Bates for the aid he rendered it. WORK ON DRY DOCK HAMPERED The work on timber dry dock No. 2 at the Navy Yard, which has been going on Low for many months, under the supervision of Civil Engineer Asserson, head of the department of yards and docks. is somewhat handicapped by the constant leakage. Each morning, as preparations are made to begin work, the whole floor of the dock is found to be submerged, caused by the ooze of water during the night.

The water then has to be pumped out, causing a delay each day. The dry dock is being practically rebuilt since it was taken out of the hands of the department -construction and repair. All the old sheet piling is being ripped out and in its place square instead of round piles sunk, fitting into each other on the groove plan. the new piling has been completed steps will be begun to convert the present leaky timber structure into a concrete dry dock.
