prospect of the Anglo-American arbi
tration treaty. Sir Thomas Barclay,
who has been prominently identified
with the work of promoting amity
between nations, said to the Associated
"The treaty of 1897 was defeated by
twenty-six senators, many of whom
were influenced by Michael Davitt to
believe that such a treaty would de

“If the majority of the United States
Senate should thwart the progress of

all men are shocked by the horrors of
the war in the Par East and when all
realize how indispensable it is to pro

differences between nations, there

world, and the -Senate would be dis

know positively that several senators
who voted against the treaty of 1897

NEW TRIAL ORDERED.
Kentucky Appellate Court Ha* Re
viewed the Celebrated Case.
Frankfort, Ky„ Dec. 6.—Caleb Pow

day granted anew trial by the Ken
tucky Appellate Court. Each of the
seven judges of the court wrote an
opinion in the case. Pour concurred
in ordering anew trial. They were
Judges Barker, Settle, Burns and
Orear. The three who dissented were
Judges Paynter, Nunn and Hobson.
Powers was charged with complicity
in the assassination of Gov. Goebel.
On the first trial he was convicted and
given a life sentence. The second trial
resulted in a conviction and sentence
The principal grounds assigned by
Judge Barker in the main opinion
granting anew trial were:
Because of improper remarks made
by the late attorney for the common
wealth, T. C. Campbell; because sen
tence was passed within two days after
the jury rendered its verdict, and be
cause the court refused to grant fur
ther time to the defendant’s attorney
to file reasons fop a nev trial.
NEGRO FROM LYNCHING.
Mob of Hi* Own People Clamored
for the Life of Vaughn.
Columbus, Ga,. Dec. 6.—Only the
most determined effort on the part of
white men has prevented the lynching
of William Vaughn at the hands of a
negro mob in Russell county, Alabama.
Vaughn confessed that he robbed his
wife’s grandmother, set fire to her
house, murdered her and threw her
bleeding body Into the flames a few
After the capture of Vaughn a mob
of negroes quickly assembled. They
were wrought up to a high pitch of
excitement and threatened to deal out
summary justice. Only the sternest
measures and a most determined front
on the part of a number of white men
who gathered expecting trouble, saved
the negro’s life.
The negro was carried to Montgom
ery, Ala., then brought back to Seale,
where he is now in the Russell county
jail. No further trouble is expected.

ABOUT THE CHADWICK CASE.
CAKNEGIE WAS HEADY FOR A
For Some Benson no Federal Repre
sentative Saw Him, Though Sneh
a Meeting Had Been Expected—No
Arrest Hm Been Made in New
York, Though Secret Service Men
Still Shadow Mr*. Chadwick—She
Moved from the Holland.
New York, Dec. 6.—The expected did
not happen to-night in the Chadwick
case, and all predictions proved at
fault when, at a late hour ft was an
nounced that no conference between
federal officers and Andrew Carnegie
had been held at the latter's home.
This turn was surprising, for Mr.
Carnegie had announced in the course
of the day that he would be glad to
receive a federal officer, and it was
supposed that F. P. Oldham, repre
senting the controller of the treasury,
would meet him to-night, and that the
matter of the notes alleged to have
been given Ira Reynolds of Cleveland,
and said to bear the name of Andrew
Carnegie would be discussed.
As unexpected as the news that no
conference was held, was the departure
of Mrs. Chadwick from the Holland
House, where she has resided, for the
New Amsterdam Hotel. She was ac
companied by her son and a maid and
took with her some baggage. Secret
service men who have been at the Hol
land for several days followed Mrs.
Andrew Squire, a Cleveland attorney
representing Ira Reynolds, made the
announcement to-night after several
conferences with Receiver Lyon, Pres
ident Oldham and others, that he be
lieved there would be no further de
velopments in the case before to-mor
row, and also said that Mr. Oldham
had returned to Washington. This
announcement was the first indication
that there would not be a meeting at
Mr. Carnegie’s home to-night.
Still Talk of an Arrest.
Stories of a possible arrest In the
case were still current this evening,
but so far as known no warrauit has
Lawyer Carpenter, one of Mrs.
Chadwick’s counsel in New York, de
clined to give the results of the nu
merous conferences Percy W.
Carver, counsel for Herbert D. New
ton, in an interview with an Asso
ciated Press representative, said that
the Newton claim had not been paid
and that no new assurances had been
given as to Its payment. George W.
Ryall, associated with Mr. Carver,
gave no new information beside con
firming the story that he had been
in conference with-Mrs. Chadwick to
day. As to the subject,, of their talk,
he declined to make any statement.
Frank Lyon, receiver of the Oberlin
bank, arrived In this city to-day, ac
companied by F. F. Oldham, counsel
representing the controller’s office at
Washington. Mr. Lyon would neither
affirm or deny that he had with him
the two notes for 8750,000 bearing the
name of Andrew Carnegie. He de
clared that his business was not with
Mr. Oldham had a long interview
with Mr. Lyon late to-day. Neither
would make any statement except to
admit that the subject of conversa
tions had been the use of Mr. Car
negie's name on the notes now held by
Ira Reynolds, secretary and treasurer
of the Wade Park Bank of Cleveland,
who arrived here to-day, called on Mrs.
Powers Answers Questions.
E. W. Powers, of Mrs. Chadwick's
counsel, was interviewed to-day with
reference to the statement made by
Mr. Beckwith in Oberlin, 0., last night.
“Were you ever in Oberlin, O. ?” was

“Hus she a million dollars?”
“Yes, and more than a million.”
Mr*. Clinilnick Fainted.
It was about 10 p. m. when Mrs.
Chadwick, with her son and maid, left
an elevator in the Holland House and
took a cab. She walked slowly and
her actions Indicated that she has not
fully recovered from her recent in
As soon ns Mrs. Chadwick’s cab left
the hotel secret service men took other
vehicles and drove after her.
At the New Amsterdam Hotel she
was helped Into the women's reception

five minutes the woman was able to

on the Receipt.
Mansfield, 0., Dec. 6.—Mrs. Cassie
L. Chadwick made two or three vis
its to Mansfield, called upon Judge
Brucker. president of the Bank of
Mansfield, and attempted to nego
tiate a loan of $30,000 through him.
She also called upon the law firm of
Cummins, Mcßride & Wolfe and at
tempted to retain-this firm to secure a
50,000 loan for her. She visited
Judge Brucker twice, with an Interval
of six months between, and on the
second occasion showed him what
purported to be a receipt for a $30,000
fee in a case signed by Virgil P.
Kline, a well known Cleveland law

the woman after she had offered to re

This story was sent out by the As
sociated Press and Judge Brucker is
now in receipt of a letter from Vir

Chadwick woman showed one, it was
a forgery. Judge Brucker, however,
reiterates he was shown one by the

Beckwith Doesn’t Think He Should
Be Held Responsible.
Oberlin, 0., Dec. 6.—President C. T.
Beckwith was practically in a state
of collapse to-day as a result of the
trying ordeal through which he pass
ed yesterday in connection with his
hearing before the United States com
missioner at Cleveland.
Beckwith is completely prostrated
and his grief is pitiful. In discussing
his troubles the voice of the aged
banker is choked with emotion. To
day, in speaking of the Carnegie
notes, he vehemently delared that if
the signatures were forgeries then
the hand of the law should be laid up
on Mrs. Chadwick. “Why should I
stand the brunt of all this trouble,
which has been„directly brought about
by the a,cts of'that woman?” he cried.
~ermTtrratng. Mr. BeckWith said: "I
had every reason to believe that the
notes were genuine. Indeed. Mrs.
Chadwick swore they were. She snlotnn
ly declared that she had seen Mr.
Carnegie write his signature on them.
To confirm this, she brought an at
torney with her who declared that he
was the legal representative of Mr.
Carnegie and this attorney, whose
name, I cannot now state, declared
that he knew positively that the sig
natures were genuine.
“It is true that we—Mr. Spear and
myself—did indorse the notes, but of
course we had no idea that they were

assurance of Ira Reynolds, secretary
of the Wade Park Bank Company of
Cleveland, that he had the securities

What Platt Say* About It.
By R. M, Larncr.
Washington, Dec. 6.—'Senator T. C.
Platt of Now York, at the Instance of
the National Republican League, has
pushed to the front as champion of
the proposition to reduce the represen
tation In the House of Representatives
from the Southern states. He has
prepared a bill, drawn along the lines
of the Crumpackor measure, and will
Introduce it in the Senate to-morrow.
Senator Plait does not admit that
his bill Is aimed directly at the South
ern states. On the contrary, he says
It proposes to regulate the congres
sional representation in all the stales,
North and South. It provides for a
reduction of about sixteen representa
tives from (he South. In support of
ills bill. Senator Platt made the fol
“My bill !i formed upon the lowest
limitation possible, and treats as ex
cluded from the suffrage only the male
negro citizens over twenty-one years
of age, classed by the twelfth census
as Illiterates, under the 1900 census
tables, published since the apportion
ment act of Jan. 10, 1901.
"The aggregates actually excluded
from the suffrage in each Htate re
ferred to are In truth larger than those
used as the basis for this act. If all
negro votables, regardless of Illiteracy,,
should be deemed to be excluded, the
reduction In representation, figured
from the name tables, would be nearly
twice as great as stated in my bill.
"It requires no evidence, beyond the
notorious historical fact, for Congress
to adjudge what cannot be denied, that
the class of negro Illiterates, to the ex
tint stated, is practically excluded
from the suffrage In certain states, no
matter what may be nominal pro
visions of their respective constitutions
or election laws.
“The hill, therefore, presents the
smallest reduction practicable and is

considered, the reduction should extend
