French, When He Returns from South Africa, Will Command the First Army Corps. LONDON, Oct. 23.—Sir Redvers Buller has been relieved of the command of the ■ First Army Corps in consequence of the speech he made on Oct. 10. He has been placed on half pay, and Gen. French has been appointed to succeed him. In the official announcement, the W’ar Office says that~the Commander in Chief, “ after full consideration of all the circum-Btances and the explanations furnished,” recommended that Gen. Buller be relieved, which has been done. The appointment of Gen. French is to take effect when his services are no longer required in South Africa.” Pending Gen. French’s return Gen. xxildyard will command at Aldershot. Gen. Buller’s supersession was not unexpected, ’ ut the manner of it has caused a sensation. The morning papers all express sympathy over the unfortunate ending of a brilliant career, but thej’- are unanimous in saying that no . other course was open after Gen. Buller’s indiscreet speech. They express the greatest approval of the s'elec-tion of Gen. French to succeed him. The Daily Chronicle and The Dally News attack the Government for weakness and lack of courage in ever appointing Gen. Buller to the command of an army corps. R. B. Haldane, M. P., Speaks on the Necessity of Scientific and Technical Training. The speech which resulted in Gen. Buller’s compulsory retirement was delivered at a luncheon given by the Queen’s Westminster Rifle Volunteers at their headquar-ters'In Westminster to of their number who took part in the war in South Africa. The latter were attached while on active service to the King’s Royal Rifles. Gen. Buller spoke in reply to a toast by Col. Sir Howard Vincent, who proposed The King’s Royal Rifles,” coupled with the same of Sir Redvers, who is Colonel Commandant of the regiment. In what even such a conseiA’ative paper as The Standard called in its headlines ” An Amazing Speech,” Gen. Buller said: “ I know that there is a correspondent of The Times here, and I want to send a mes sage to that journal. I came home in November last and took over the Aldershot command on Jan. 10. In February I got a letter from a man. I admit he was not a respectable man. I had never seen him in my life. I had heard of him, and knew about him, and he wrote to me to the effect that I had let him out of prison. If it was done It was done in my name. He particularly wished to see me, and asked whether I would giv'e him an appointment In London. The man was what I should call an International detective, or, possibly, a spy. He is an old hian, and he has been at it all his life. I did not want to give nim an appointment, I was afraid of being put In a hole, but I wrote asking him to meet me at Aldershot. He came down and told me a lot of interesting stories about the Secret Servdce of the Transvaal, and how stupid we were and how we allowed oiirselves to be deceived, and how he got his Information thrcugh •       . “I then said, *‘u’'en, 1 am really rather busy and very much interested in your ftories, but perhaps you have come down o tell me something else.’ He said, ‘ I have,* aiid continued, ‘ Well, the other day you published a paper about artillery, didn’t you?’ I said, ‘Yes, I did.’ ‘Arid you were told to withdraw it?’ I said. ’Yes, I was.’ He said, ‘You have got money to live upon. Give up the Aldershot command.' I said, ‘ Thank you very much, but I do not know that I need.’ I said, ‘Why?’ He .said, *I will tell you; you have got enemies, not exactly enemies, but men who mean to get you out of the way, and they will do so. You had better get out quietly and happily.’ I said, ‘ I do not know what you think. I am a fighting man, and what you have told me wall make me much more' likely to stay.’ ‘ Well,’ said he, ‘ as I stand before you, I came to tell you this as a favor.’ Of course, I did not ask him for names. As he was going away I said, 'Of course, If it is necessary for me to this Information I shall do so.’ and he said, ‘ You can.’ So X tell the .story to-day. “It is a curious thing that a fortnight ago a few of the London papers brought cut on the .same day articles against me. ; It might have been an accident. Probably It was. However, it was a coincidence. They were all on the same day, and they all attacked me in the same.manner. “ The Times has attacked me by way of a letter from ‘ A Reformer,’ who may be, for all I know, a penny-a-liner or the greatest man in the world; at any rate, he Is an anonymous scribe. The Times says I am not fitted to be in command of the First Army Corps, and I assert that there is nobody at this time in England junior to me who is as fit as I am. I challenge The Times to say who is the man they have In their eye more fit t an I am.” Later on in his. speech Gen. Buller admitted that he had advised Gen. White to surrender Ladysmith. An abstract of this portion of Sir Redvers’s remarks was cabled to New York on Oct. 10. London Times—New York Times Special Cablegram. LONDON, Oct. 2o.—Richard B. Haldane, M. P., (Liberal,) in a speech on education at Liverpool last eveningrsaid the lack of educational spirit in the middle classes, complained of by Matthew Arnold a quart^ of a century ago, would still exist but^tr the fact that those classes had suddenly found their position threatened by new commercial combinations. They^had been forced to realize that courage, energy, and enterprise, in these modern days, were of little more avail against the weapons science could put in the hands of their commercial rivals than was the splendid fighting of the dervishes against the shrapnel and Maxims at Omdurman. It was not wonderful, said Mr. Haldane, that England had been beaten in the manufacture of iron and steel by the United States, but it was startling that she had also-been beaten by Germany. Clearly England w under the necessity, in these early ays of the twentieth century, of making a resolute effort if she was to hold her own. She might not be able to continue to surpass the United States. Nature had handicapped her In that race. But Great Britain must maintain the increase in the volume of her trade. Mr. Haldane w-ent on to show how scientific training had improved the brewing trade of Germany, which country had applied science to the practical workings of the industrial world. The manufacture of aniline dyes from coal tar, discovered In England, had lately shifted wholly to Germany. The speaker argued In favor of technical training to help solve the problem. HISS STONE’S CiPTHRE HAS COST MANY IIYES AMERICAN CAPITAL IN PERU. PBESIDENT’S ASSASSIN ASKS FOR A PRIESf KNIGHT’S UNIFORM SEIZED. Turkish Guards Shot Five Fugitives on the Frontier. Officials Have Subjected a Number of Persons to Torture, and Several Have Died. LONDON, Oct. 23.—The Morning Leader publishes the following, dated Oct. 10, from Sofia; “ On the frontier near Grossbelovo yesterday five fugitives from Baniska, Macedonia—among them a brother of Mme. Tsilka, Miss Stone’s companion—were shot dead by frontier guards while endeavoring to cross into Bulgarian territory. “ United States Consul General Dickinson, believing that they were members of the American Mi.ssion Church, has demanded an official inquiry. “ Great brutality exists in the district between Baniska and the frontier. Turkish officials have arrested over one hundred residents of Bulgarian nationality and subjected them to torture In order to wring from them information as to Stone's whereabouts. Several of them died under torture. “ The Bulgarian authorities, likewise worried over the affair, are continually arresting fugitives from Macedonia, and this causes bad blood.” Men Close to Senator Clark Will Invest $10,000,000 in Developing Copper Properties. Special to 'fhe New York Tin es. SAN F'RANCTSt’O. Oct. 22,-United States Minister Dudley, who returned from Peru to-day, brought the first definite details that have been made public of the enormous scheme of a party of .\merican.s to develop the copper mines of Peru and to make that country one of the great copper \ producers of the world. Mr. Dudiey .‘^aid:    | “ Copper properties of enormous value , have been discovered at Cerro de Pasco, in j (he heart of the Andes, and .Slri.OOU.OOO of American capital i.s to be invested in their development. The project involves the building of eighty miles of railroad from Arroyo, the present terminus of the 120-mile road that runs from the seaport* of Callao tc the mines. At the present time the only means of transporting copper ore to the railroad Is on the backs of llamas and burros. "When this road is finished Peru will jump into prominence as one of the largest producers of copper in the world. The pleasing thing about this development of the Peruvian copper mines is that American capital i.s back of the enterprise. I am not in a position to mention the names of thofie interested in the big enterprise, but I can .'-ay that among the number are some people to Senator Clark of Montana. The properties are to be exploited on the most extensive scale.” Czolgosz Refuses to Renounce His Belief in Anarchy.

London Times—New York Times Special Cablegram. LONDON, Oct. 23,—The Paris correspondent of Tb»' Times says M. Santos-Dumont’s airship has occasioned a lawsuit. A M. Lemaltre, whose property at St. Cloud adjoins M. Deutsch’s yard, complains that the liquids used in the preparation of gas permeate the soil, damage the streets, and produce noxious exhalations. Consequently he has begun a suit against M. Deutsch. It is argued, however, that either M, Santos-Dumont or the Aero Club is responsible. THE DEUTSCH PRIZE DISPUTE. No Decision Yet as to Whether Santos-Dumont Will Get the 100,000f. PARIS, Oct. 22.—The Aerostation Commission has not yet decided, whether M. San-tos-Dunaorit, the Brazilian aeronaut, la entitled to the prize of 100,000f. offered by M. Deutsch for a dirigible balloon. No decision will be made before November, as the competition remains open until Oct. 31. If in the meantime another competitor should appear and fulfill the conditions, he would share in the prize. Prince Roland Bonaparte, President of the commission, and M. Deutsch are both of the opinion that M. Santos-Dumont has won the prize, and the latter has telegraphed to the aeronaut to this effect, adding that he is convinced that the commission will a'ward it to M. Santos-Dumont. London Times—New York Times Special Cablegram. LONDON, Oct. 23.—The Vienna correspondent of The Times says the Bulgarian and Turkish troops have orders to proceed with the utmost precaution in the matter of the abduction of Miss Ellen M. Stone. The brigands guarding her are said to be merely acting on behalf of certain Màcedonian elements. Both the American Consul at Sofia and the Bulgarian officials w’ould regard the payment of an exofbitant ransom as an unfortunate precedent. Search Is being made for the promoters of the abduction who are believed to be ex-members of the Macedonian committee. The Consul thinks that if they w^ere arrested w'hile dealing with the brigands it would simplify i.iattors. Bulgaria is prepared to take vigorous action against the instigators of the outrage If they are caught. Company, Similar to the Oil Trust, to be Formed with a Capital of $22,000,000. INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., Oct. 22—Straw board manufacturers of Iowa, Illinois, and Indiana met here to-day and took steps toward the formation of a national combination. The senior member of Dean & Shibley of New York, Providence, and Boston. ■was present at the conference. The scheme, as adopted and indorsed, provides for a combination of large proportions. similar in many respects to. the Standard Oil Company, it is proposed to torm a combination of all these Industrie.«, wu'th head offices in New York, and a capital stock of S22,000,iX)0, the plants now in operation to be paid for entirely bv stock in the new concern. The American Straw-board Company is to be absorbed, together with independent concerns, by the new combination or trust. The combination will not be formed until it can control SO per cent, of the box board output of the country.

IjOndon Times—Ne-w York Times Special Cablegram. LONDON. Oct. 23,—A dispatch to The Times from "Wellington says the Government is urging the reappointment of Lord Ranfurly as Governor and Commander in Chief of New Zealand. preferred to be Dismissed—Comment of The London Times. London Times—New York Times special Cablegram. LONDON, Oct. 23.—The Times, in an editorial article to day, comments on the removal of Gen. Buller from the com-inand of the First Arm. Corps. The editorial says an opportunity to resign was given to Sir Redvers, but he preferred dismissal. His choice only throws into stronger relief the amazing defects in judgment and in sense of military discipline marking his "W^estminster speech. That speech challenged judg-xnent, flouted his superiors, tvho were Gen. Buller's shield, and trampled on discipline, which was his bulw'ark. The Times adds: “ Gen. Buller has developed the defects of his qualities. His tenacity has become obstinacy, his masterful spirit has grown Into insubordination, and his self-reliance has blinded him to what was painr iully obvious to others.” M. A. P., T. P. O’Connor’s paper, recently stated that, such was the popularity of the Earl of Ranfurly after his four years’ Governorship, there was talk of a special request from the colonists for his reappointment when his term expired. As an instance of Lord Ranfurly’s tact, M. A. P. mentioned a dinner at w'hich he presided, given by the Yorkshiremen of the colony. “ AVhen it came to thinking about tlie speechifjdng,” said the paper, “ Ranfurly found himself somewhat in a hole. To talk about the colony’s progress and prospects would be simple bathos in the ears of these old and seasoned colonists, and the Gov'ernor shrewdly decided to talk horse.’ A sport-loving Irishman may be trusted to kno-W' something about a horse, and the Governor warmed the hearts of his admiring audience before he sat down. ‘ Eh, man,’ observed one to another at the table. ‘ yon lad knov/s summat. Ef it hadn’t been for his brogue. Aw should ha’ said he’d been born i’ Yarkshire.’ ” GERMANY’S SHIPPING TRADE. INDEX TO DEPARTMENTS. Stocks strong.-Financial Affairs.-Pages 12 and 13.

CONSTANTINOPLE, Oct. 22.—Should no news be received during the next forty-eight hours from the missionaries who are seeking the captors of Miss Stone more missionaries will be sent to assist in locating the brigand band.    i It Is understood that the missionaries have been waiting at places in the vicinity of where the brigands áre supposed to be, expecting to receive a communication from them. It is proposed now that a search party shall be organized to penetrate to the brigands’ retreat. ONE REPORT FROM SOFIA. Sultan Abdul Hamid Said to Have Or* dered the Abduction of Misb Stone.

Carriage Builders Report that the Automobile Has Not Yet Supplanted the Old-Fashioned Steed. CINCINNATI, Ohio. Oct. 22.—The National Carriage Building Association met here to-day. The convention w'as called to order by President F. B. Judkins of Merri-mac, Mass. In his address President Judkins said that the last bulletin of the Cen- yoar the machine men working on this, the seventh level south, put in a round of shots and opened a flow' of water from an underground lake. This water has taxed the capacity of the immense pumps in the mine from that day to this. l.iast Monday, the 21st, the water had gone down under the unceasing drain of the pumps until the men could.get in on that level and go to work. They started to drift south, about l«Mi feet south of the shaft, and after getting in a few' feet they out a very rich vein. The vein is now opened up from four to five feet in width and contains numberless streak.s of sylvanite fluorine talc and quartz. Neither wall has been touched as yet, and there is no telling at this time liow' wide the vein is. This vein seems to radiate from an immense chimne.v, in-which is the lake. The chimney seems to end at the top ai.this level, 7(mi feet below surface, and i.s in the shape of a dome .some 25 or 3U feet in diameter. The formation in this chimney is or seems to be manganese quartz and fluorine talc mixed with sylvanite, while the roof, which on top and a little way down the sides, as dl.sclosed, shows that the matter has been br.rned all the way from a yellow' to a black color, and the water which until today filled the cavity has evidently tlecom-posed a large portion of the burned matter. thus freeing the sylvanite.
