Washington, Oct. 28.—In official and
diplomatic quarters attention is being
directed to the question of a Pacific
cable, liukiug this country with the
Philippines and poiuts beyond.
In a general way, the project is for a
cable of four links, viz..: From San
Francisco to Hawaii, 2,100 miles; from
Hawa I to Waka ialand, 8(044 miles;
from Wake island to Uuam, 1,208 miles;
from Guam to Manila, 1,350 miles.
These landing points are all within the
control of the United States, our flag
having been raised at Wake island not
long ago. This would connect all the
American possessions in the Pacific by
a line crossing no foreign territory.
Besides this, the plan permits of an
expansion so as to secure two outlets
to Asia and the far east.
The first of these would be from Ma-
nila to the Japanese island of Formosa,
from which island Japan has built a
line to the Japanese coast and the
mainland of Asia. The second outlet
would be from Hawaii south to Fan-
ning's island, at which point *'

There were six persons residing in the

New York, OcL 27.—Senator Depew
last night gave out a statement of the
terms of the will of the late Cornelius

is estimated at 170,000,000. Alfred
Gwynn Vandcrbilt will get about S.r>0,-

the family. The will gives Cornelius
Vandcrbilt about 81,500,000. It gives
to each of his remaining brothers and
sisters about 87,500,000, Alfred, of
course, not included. Out of the spirit

Is 1889 a law was passed in Germany
that ever}* German with an income of
|7.r>0 aud over must insure his life
against sickness and old age. In 1898
there were 11,300,000 persons in tier-
many thus insured, and so many of
these had pulmonary consumption that
37 of the insurance companies erected,
at their own expense, a sanitarium for
the care of these persons.
Tim State Charities Aid association,
of New York, has received a report
from a special committee saying that
the number of children placed in insti-
tutions at public expense as destitute
has risen far beyond the normal ratio,
ami the evil is thought to be growing
rapidly, due to the increasing tendency
of people who do not need public char-
ity to avail themselves of it.
We are warned that disease is often

have been issued this week for the pur-
chase of 81,599,900 worth of clothing,
army hats, tents, russet shoes, leg-
gings and the like, which is expected
to meet the demand for about six
months, when another supply must be
sent out. The light linen uniform suit
adopted for troops in the tropics will
be purchased iu large quantities. Hun-
dreds of teuts arc also included, to re-
place those which have become weath-
er-beaten by the continuous rains dur-
ing the summer.
Besides these supplies, the ordnance
bureau is to purchase iu the opeu mar-
ket nearly $590,090 worth of ordnance
supplies, of which S">9,999 will be used
in securing rapid-fire guns. Quanti-
ties of ammunition for small arms,
