The care of mil- lions seems to be less conducive to longevity than does the making of them. One of the best evidences that Ad- miral Dewey does uot intend to be a presidential candidate is the fact that he has canceled all his engage- ments to be "received." The Ma- nila hero seems to think the best time to retire from politics is before he gets in the game. The victory of the Columbia in de- fense of the America's cup having been now achieved there is a clem field for Mr. Lever, of Lever Broth- ers, Limited, the millionaire soap manufacturers, of London, who had already announced his intention of trying- for it in case the Shamrock failed. General Funston is a young mnn and soldier with mighty little non- sense about him. His Kansas ad- mirers, who include everybody in the whole Jayhawk state, hnve pur- chased a very handsome and costly sword to present to him upon his re- turn to Kansas in a short time. Gen- eral Funston lins notified the com- mittee thnt unless a certain inscrip- tion is removed from the blade he will not iccept the sword. The in- scription is, "I can hold this position until my regiment is mustered a reply General Funston is alleged to have made to his commanding of- ficer in one of the battles near Manila An Unequalled This mammoth value-giving SIO sale of Men's Suits and Over- coats was never before equaled in the greatest values ever given.

Like the "Beauti- ful "Who Struck Billy Pat- and some other noted things, the true authorship of the words attributed to Funston is in- volved in considerable haze. Congressman Otey, of Virginia, having discovered that there was no portrait of General Robert E. Lse among those at West Point of the former superintendents of the mili- tary academy, has written to Presi- dent McKinley and Secretary Boot nnd received answer that the portrait will be hung nmong the others if do- nated to the academy. It is probable that the Daughters of the Confeder- acy will furnish the painting. Oeu eral Lee was superintendent of the academy from 1852 to 1855. THE ALASKA DISPUTE. The agreement for a provisional boundary in the disputed territory in Alaska has been reached after such long discussion that it may be accepted as at least an approxima- tion to a fair settlement. No exist- ing rights are prejudiced by this agreement, but it would have been very discreditable to two highly civ- ilized governments to leave tlie jur- isdiction of the region involved any longer in dispute. It is only a very small part boundary line that is even tempora- rily supplied. Great rather claims an inter- pretation of the treaty that the Uni- ted States cannot admit, and the Ca- nadians are equally unwilling to ad- mit the interpretation which claim. As in the Venezuela case, the question was never of practical inter- est until the opening of the gold fields, but that has given it a very urgent interest, and all parties to the dispute are equally concerned in a safe and satisfactory adjustment. The advantage of the present modus Vivendi is that it not only pro- vides a temporary agreement ns to the customs nnd other administrn< live responsibilities of the region, but manifests a mutual good will and a desire for harmonious agreement. If such a spirit be maintained, the boundaiy dispute will work out its own settlement in time, in spite oi the conflicting interests that may seek to postpone a settlement. TEAMSTEBS ORGANIZE. A meeting of the teamsters of the city was held in the Vordermnrk hall Sunday evening nnd n union was formed with the following offi- cers Tanner. Vice W. Wctzel. F. Fry. Financial V. Kesscn. Fry. in m C. Lauer. G. Bierbaum. Addresses were mode by Judge Edward O'Eourke and A. A. Pur- man. Judge O'Rourke said that brotherhood was the essence of or- ganization and sympathy and mu- tual help, the highest object to at- tain. Mr. Purman said that organi- zation was neccessary to the pro- gress of laboring men in intelli- gence, as It enabled them to discuss social and economic questions. The new union will he chartered by the National Team Drivers' association and will be represented by its dele- in the Trades and Labor coun- cil. THIS WEEK WITH THE CLUBS.

CORNERSTONE LAID SUNDAY WITH IMPRESSIVE CEREMONIES BY REV. LANGE. Impressive ceremonies marked the laying of the corner stone of the new Lutheran school building on Walton avenue Sunday afternoon. The day was an ideal one, and when the exer- cises opened at 3 o'clock an immense audience was present. The structure is being erected by the newly organ- ized Concordia Lutheran church, but every Lutheran congregation in the city was represented in the gather- ug. Rev. August Lange, pastor of the ew congregation, conducted the opening service of song and prayer, followed by the scripture reading, and the choir of St. Paul's church rendered a selection preceding the sermon by the pastor. Bev. Lange selected his text from Psalms cxvl 24-25: "This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. Save now, I beseech thee, O Lord, O Lord, I beseech thee, send now prosperity." THE SERMON. In opening Bev. Lange detailed the organization of the new congre- gation and the work It has already done. He cited the fact that the con- gregation of St. Paul's church had grown so large thnt the edifice could no longer accommodate them. Many of the worshippers reside in the ex- treme, eastern part of the city, and for this reason it was deemed advisa- ble to establish another church in thnt territory. There are already, said the pastor, 120 families on the rolls of the new1 Concordia church, and the future of the organization is extremely bright. Mnny others will be within Its fold within a short time. He referred to the work -already performed in getting the school along to Its present nnd appealed to the members to mnko the day one of thanksgiving and prayer: to ntl be glad in it according to the words of the text. Already tha new congregation has been divinely fa- vored, and the speaker appealed to them to unite in the most earnest ef- forts for the upbuilding of the new organization with the assistance and ess in g of God. In closing Bev. Lnnge snid it is hoped that the new edifice will bs completed early in March of next year, and it is expected the school will be opened on Easter. Two in- structors are to be employed, nnd both English and German will be taught. Charles Scherer and Charles Kvudop were named as mem- bers of the vestry board, and Joseph Koby. Christian Doenges nnd iharles Bodenbeck as trustees. LAYING THE STONE. The ceremony of laying the corner stone followed the sermon, nnd in this ceremony the impressive ritual of the church was followed. Within the stone was placed a sealed copper jox containing a copy of the consti- lution of the church, n number of church nnd school books, a list of :he officials nnd members of the con- gntion, the names of President McKinley, Governor Mount and Mayor Scherer, the .names of the n embers of the building committee, ;he architects and the contractors, as well as other data. The school building is to be 95 feet, long, 36 feet in width and two stories lilgh. It is situated on Walton ave- nue a short distance south of Lewis street, in a growing section of the city where there is believed to be ample field for its development. On :he first floor of the structure are to two large school rooms, and the' upper floor is to be fitted up ns a .rge hall in which to hold religious; service until a church is erected. The school building will cost about 000. The architect is J. M. E. Bie- del, and the contractors are Wehren- )erg Busching. The building com- mittee is composed of Rev. Lange, Otto Herbst, Joseph Koby, Christian Doenges, F. Albersmeyer and Charles Krudop. The organ used 'Sunday at the ceremonies was furnished by the courtesy of the Packard Organ and Piano company, and the members of :he congregation arc very grateful 'or the favor. THE SPOBTING NEWS. Yale won from Wisconsin Saturday afternoon in the last five minutes of play, when Richards, a substitute, ot the ball and, made a fluke run of seventy-five yards. Pat O'Dea's punting was a revelation to the Yalesians, who bad never seen any- thing to equal it in the east. He failed to kick a goal from the field, but many and many a time sent the ball flying into Yale territory wheu there was danger that it might be carried past the Badgers for a touch- down. The big Pennsylvania eleven was beaten by Lafayette college 6 to 0. Chicago beat Oberlin 58 to 0 and several of Chicago's best players were out of the game. Culver Academy eleven beat Hunt- ington High school 18 to 0. This is the first time in three years that Huntington has been scored against. Notre Dame plays University of Indiana today, and the winner will play Purdue for the state champion- ship. President Nick Young has an- nounced the official batting averages and he places Ed. Delehanty first, with an average of .408. Burket is second with .402, Hickman third nnd McGraw fourth. Tenney is placed ahead of Stahl, with an average of .350. Stnbl's official average is .348. Bob Fitzsimmons will enter the ring again. He has signed to fight Jeff Thome, the Englishman who was easy for "Kid" McCoy. Jefferies' nrm is snid to be all right now and he will be as good as ever when he enters the ring on the evening of November 3. PROVED IT. BANQUETTED EMPLOYES. The management of the Fort Wayne Drug company tendered their employes a banquet at the Wayne hotel on Saturday evening and the event was one which will be long cherished in the minds of both em- ployers nnd employes. The banquet was given in the hotel ordinary, and the tables were tastefully decorated for the occasion. The menu was the best product of the culinary art. The toastmaster of the banquet was F. W. Sihler, manager of the com- pany. In n short preliminary ad- dress Mr. Sihler thanked the em- ployes for the way in which they had performed their duties since the es- tablishing of the concern, and stated thnt the great success of the firm was due to the harmony and good will that prevailed among the employes. The speaker urged thnt such a spirit continue nnd said that individual en- denvor would be appreciated nnd re- nted. Dr. W. O. Gross, treasurer of the company, made a short speech which ho praised the employes for the cheerful manner In which they had performed their duties, and stntcd that the success of the firm In the future would largely depend on the way in which they would per- form their duties. F. G. Lnndenber- g-er, hi n short address, gave several suggestion of n technical nature, nnd spoke of the value of accuracy and en re In the conducting of the busi- ness of departments. Hem y Boworimd, head of the sundries de- partment, spoke of the value of care- ful work, and expressed himself pleased with the cordial relations ex- isting between the employer and em- ploye. Several other employes were called upon for speeches nnd nil ex- pressed themselves ns pleased with the cordial relations which exist nnd with the considerate treatment they had always received. Good mutual relations brought unity of effort bearing out the proverb, "In unity there is strength." The greater por- tion of the evening was spent in so- cial chat, singing nnd having gen- eral good time. Messrs. Gross nnd Sihler arc so pleased with the trend of nffairs thnt they will make these gatherings regular events.
