All-Americas Win Once lore
From Anson's Team.
Lively Meeting of the County League
Guckert Wants to Play a Guitar Match for
The American baseball players were at
the famous Crystal Palace, near London,
yesterday and played a game. The All
Americas were again victorious. The
crowd was larze. John M. "Ward sailed for
borne. To-day the teams will play at
Bristol, the home of Dr. "W. G. Grace, the
cricketer. He will give them a dinner.
To-morrow Crane will throw the cricket
ball against G. J. Bonner, the celebrated
thrower of England.
Loxdo-, March 14. Copyright John
Ward left London at 9 o'clock this morn
ing, and by this evening is on the high
seas on board the 2forth German Lloyd
steamer Saale. He leaves the All-America
team somewhat crippled, and it is neces
sary to bring Fogarty in from the outfield
to play short and to play Healy or Crane
in Fogarty's place. In spite of these dis
advantages, however, the All-America
added another victory to its list to-day.
The game was played on the beautiful
grounds of the Crystal Palace cricket club, be
fore an audience which numbered not less
than 6,000, and which, to all appearances at
least, was composed of the very best sort of
people, though there were no titled or other
celebrities present.
Crane, through an unfortunate misunder
standing, missed the train by which the others
went out to the ground, and was unable to ar
rive until the third inning, up to which time
Pettit and Tener alternately played in the field
for their opponents. Once the teams were
completed the game went forward to the satis
faction of everybody. The hitting was not
very free, as Healyand Baldwin both had their
pitching clothes on and were able to fool their
opponents without much trouble.
All America led off with a run in the first
and another in the second innings, but the Chi
capos scored two runs in the third inning, tying
the-game. In the seventh inning Chicago led
by one run. The game was decided in the
eighth and ninth innings, when the AH Ameri
cas, by a happy succession of kits, knocked
out two and one runs respectively. The char
acter of the game may be judged from the fact
that the All Americas had but one error and
the Chicagos but tnro.
The boys will leave ,at 9 o'clock to-morrow
morning for Bristol. They will he entertained
"at luncheon. In the afternoon they will play
on the new cricket ground of the Gloucester
shire county club. In the evening the cele
brated Dr. Grace will give the teams a dinner,
after which the boys will return to London in
order to be here for the game on Saturday on
the Leyton grounds. After the game on Sat
urday, Crane and G. J. Bonner, the celebrated
Australian cricketer, will throw the cricket
ball. Crane, who broke the record in Australia
in January, has been put forward by Spalding
gainst all competitors for a long distance
throw. Bonner, whose previous performances
have been altogether extraordinary, is the
only one who has thus far come forward in
response, although the event is open to all
comers. Every evening of this week has been
filled in with theatrical and social engagements
of various sorts. Here is to-day's full score:

avenue terrier. Sullivan weighed 33 pounds
and the Penn avenue dog 33 pounds.
There was some spirited betting, the Penn
avenue dog being favorite. There were few

Sullivan's only injury was a wound in one of
bis forelegs.

Efforts to Slake Its Schedule Another
meeting to be Held.
The amateur ball players, that is, the repre
sentatives of the Allegheny County Baseball
League, had quite a lively time of it last even
ing trying to arrange a schedule of games for
the season. They didn't get one finished, but
that wasn't for lack of energy. It was rather
because each of the ten representatives wanted
his own way. Some even threatened to leave
the meeting if their notions of schedule mak
ing were not adopted.
The meeting was held at the store of AL
Pratt and everv club in the league was repre
sented. The Etna Stars did not want the sea
son to be opened until May and this caused
considerable delay. The Duquesnes also
wanted something they couldn't get, and so did
many others. This kept business so far back
that tho representatives adiourned to meet on
Monday evenine next when they expect to com
plete the schedule.
It may, however, not be out of place to re
mark that It might have been better for every
body bad a committee of three been appointed
to formulate a schedule of games.
The representatives stated that their respect
ive clubs are all in good shape.

Gnckcrt Will Flnv Stinson on the Gnitnr for
A well-known local sporting man stated last
night that be is prepared to match Ed. Guck
ert, of Allegheny, to play any man a match on
the guitar for $500 or $1,000 a side. Guckcrt
can also be matched to play Charley Stinson on
the same instrument for the same stake. The
backer of Guckert also stated that his man will
play Stinson the best of three selections, as fol
lows: One on the guitar, one on the banjo and
one on the mandolin. The Guckert party will
meet Stinson. or anybody else, at any time, at
Kleber's music store. Wood street.
It is likely that a contest will be arranged be
tween Guckert and Stinson, as the latter is a
first-class artist on any of the instruments
named. A contest between the two would, un
doubtedly, be novel here, but it would certainly
be attractive. If they are matched it is likely
that three qualified musicians will be selected
as judges.

of the Window Glass Workers Association,
in his official report for 'the Budget this
week says there are 491 pots in the Western
district, and of this number 399 are in
operation. In the Pittsburg district there
are 391 pots and only 30 are idle.
The report yesterday stated that there' are
1,200 pots in the Western district and 250
are idle. Mr. Cline says there are 1,107
pots operating in the country and 202 are
idle, showing a decrease of 22, compared
with last week's report.
It is-stated that the stock of window glass
is smaller now than a year ago, and although
prices are not what is desired it is the manu
facturers' fault, as they are cutting rates
and selling at almost any price.

Allegheny's Crack Ball Plnyers Found Inno
cent of Violation the Law.
Ed. Morris, the celebrated pitcher, and
William Kuehne, the third baseman of the
Allegheny club, who are the proprietors of
a billiard room on Federal street, Alle
gheny, were before Mayor Pearson last
evening. They were charged, as has been
stated, with operating a poker room in the
rear of the billiard parlor.
Last week when Chief of Police Kirsch
ler and several officers entered the room
they found several men playing cards. All
were arrested and Messrs. Morris and
Kuehne put under hail for a hearing.
A number of witnesses were examined,
but it could not be proven that any gam
bling had been done and the defendants
were discharged. The Mayor stated that he
had ordered the raid becausa, he had re
ceived an anonymous communication which
informed him that a poker game was in
operation every night at that place.
Mr. Kuehne made a statement under oath
that he never played poker, did not under
stand the game and derived no benefit from
the room occupied by some of his friends
for card playing. It was brought out that
some professional gamblers who had been
refused the privilege of plaving with the
private party had caused the anonymous
letter to be written.
A Precocious Allegheny Youth Wants to Sue
a Driver for Damages.
Audley De Costo Holman, a bright 5-year-old
son of Dr. James A. Holman, of
Allegheny, had a miraculous escape from a
horrible death about 6 o'clock last even
ing. He was crossing Samson street when
one of Heinz's heavy wagons rolled around
the corner, and the little fellow was knocked
down and run over. The wheels of the
wagon, which weighs 4.000 pounds, passed
over his legs above the knees, but the bones
were not broken. He was also injured in
ternally, and, when picked up and carried
into his father's office, was unconscious.
He revived soon after and began to shriek
with pain, but was placed under the influ
ence of morphine and his injuries were at
tended to. When he recovered' from the
effect of the drug he was very cheerful and
said: "Say, don't yon think I can sue that
driver for damages?" The boy, although
only 6 years of age, evidently has an eye to

remained in the doctor's office until told by
the father of the boy that he could retire, as
he was not altogether at fault.
The Action of the United States Conrt In
Dakota Territory.
BlSMABCK, DAK.',March 14. The opium
smuggling case was continued in the United
States Court here last evening. In the case
of Curran, the old man arrested for. trans
porting the opium from Canada to Dakota,
the jury disagreed,standing eight for acquit
tal and four for conviction. Curran then
changed his pleading of not gnilty and
pleaded gnilty to the charge of facilitating
in the transportation of the opiuni but not
to intentional wrongdoing.
After a conference with the attorneys- the
case against Curran was dismissed and sen
tence on the charge to which he pleaded
guilty was suspended. Leonard, the Den
ver man, to whom the opium was consigned,
was sentenced to seven months in the peni
tentiary. It is believed that the action in
the case of Curran means that he will fur
nish evidence which will lead to the arrest
of the entire gang, which has been engaged
in smuggling opium for years.

The Inter-State Agreement Between
the Miners and Operators.
Eyery Effort to Effect a Compromise Meets
With Failure.
The Situation as Viewed by the Delegation From
The inter-State agreement of the miners
and operators is one of the things that were,
but are no more. The joint convention at
Columbus utterly failed to reach an agree
ment and adjourned after protracted wrang
ling. The difference on the scale could not
be harmonized, and the operators refused to
arbitrate. Much of the blame rests ou the
Indiana contingent. Pittsburg's delegates
hope to avoid trouble.
Coltjmbus, March 14. The inter-State
agreement which has existed between the
coal operators and miners for the past three
years was dissolved to-day by the joint con
vention, which, after failing to fix the price
of mining for the ensuing year, adjourned
sine die. The convention did not act hast
ily, but made repeated efforts through com
mittees to adjust the differences between the
miners and operators, and it was with re
luctance on the part of both that the agree
ment was broken.
After making concessions beyond the in
structions of their constituents, the dele
gate miners offered to submit the difference "
between the propositions of the miners and
operators, which was a matter of 5 cents, to
arbitration. This the operators refused to
do, claiming that they could not get a fair
decision. It was-in view of this fact that
the final action of the miners was taken.
What the result will be is only a matter of
Both operators and miners regret that the
inter-State agreement has been dissolved.
It has been from its inception a measure of
peace, and has given to the miners satisfac
tion and contentment It originated a lit
tle more than three years ago, and was first'
proposed by the miners.
At the meeting of the convention in In
dianapolis a month ago, the Indiana opera
tors, by representing that there were certain
vicious measures pending before the Legis
lature which they wished to defeat before
fixing the scale fbr the year, secured an ad
journment for 30 days. In the meantime,
however, the President of one of the Indiana
coal roads agreed that if the miners would re
duce the rate of mining 20 cents per ton, the
railroad company would reduce freight rates
25 cents, and they would go into the market
and secure the trade of the Ohio and Penn
sylvania operators. This was their position
when they withdrew from the convention
There is every probability, according to
the statements of Mr. Penna, President of
the Indiana district of the Miners' Union,
of a strike in that State, though he does not
expect the miners to win. He is confident
that notices of reductions have already been
posted in some of the districts of the State,
and that he regards the same as a strike.
Mr. Dempster, of the Pittsburg district,
said he did not anticipate any trouble there
over the failure to agree upon prices for
mining. The rate for the spring and sum
mer fixed by last year's scale was 74 cents
per ton, and this would probably be paid
by operators the year round.
Their principle trade is the lake trade,
which is supplied in the summer, and a
strike in the winter would not affect them.
If they conld not hold their trade, they
would let their mines stand idle. If the re
duction proposed in Indiana was made, it
would greatly interfere with the Pittsburg
operators. Mr. Bend regrets the dissolution
of the agreement more than any other oper
ator. He is for peace fcr all time and has
no desire to return to the old condition of
strikes, disagreements, discontent and hos
tility. He fears that if the miners strike it
will be general, affecting not only Indiana,
but Ohio and Pennsylvania.
Mr. Schlenderberg, one of the Pittsburg
coal operators, was in favor of conceding
the demands of the miners to maintain
peace. He attributed the dissolution of the
agreement to the actions of the Ohio oper
ators, wno reiuseu iu cuueeue auyimng.
The miners will have a conference for
mutual understanding to-morrow morning,
before they return to their Homes. They do
not anticipate a strike in either Ohio or
Pennsylvania until after May 1, when their
contract with the operators expires, unless
an attempt to make a reduction comes
They still desire to avoid trouble, and it
is probable that within the next two weeks
they will concede one-halt the difference
between their propositions and those of the
operators, and ask the operators to do the
At the afternoon session of the conven
tion the miners made another effort to force
the differences to arbitration, and insisted
that the operators had failed to show good
reason why for asking a rednction.
Mr. Patterson, a Pennsylvania operator,
said he was in favor of continuing the inter-
State agreement, but if the miners were to
demand an advance at each meeting, he did
not want to remain in it. He charged the
miners with failing to live up to the agree
ment, and asserted thata the operators had
kept it to the letter.
Mr. McBride asked Mr. Patterson if he
did not know that there were operators iril
the Pittsburg district wno signed the scale
last year who compelled the miners to accept
prices below the scale rate. Mr. Patterson
could not answer the question, and Mr. Mc
Bride said he knew it was a fact Repre
sentative Hysell, of Ohio, thought the con
vention was too intelligent a body to ad
journ without coming to some definite con
clusion. He thought the convention should
submit to arbitration rather than break up
the agreement.
It was getting late, however, and a great
deal of ill-feeling was rampant, and the
convention adjourned sine die.
The New Progressive Union Will Commence
' Operations at Once.
Columbus, March ,14. The Executive
Committee of the Ohio District of the Pro
gressive Union of Miners held a meeting
to-night to consider the question of screens
at Salineville, in the Hocking "Valley dis
trict, where they are not regular .in size.
The operators at that place appeared before
the committee and stated they would not re
move the screens, as requested and in accor
dance with instrnctions given by the dis
trict meeting, the executive committee
will, it is stated, declare a strike there at
There are about 400 miners employed at
Salineville. The impression is that this
will be the beginning of a series of strikes
in the Vallev.

AHesbeny Councils Wind Up Affairs of the
Year The Appropriation Ordinance
Passed Slay Not Use Coal.
The last regular meeting of Allegheny
Councils for this year was held last evening,
nnd -an unusual amount of routine business
was transacted. A fight was expected in
the Select branch over the report of the
Water Committee awarding the contract for
fuel to Charles Jutfe & Sons, the coal oper
ators, instead of the Allegheny Heating
Company, a natural gas concern, but it did
not occur. The contract, however, was not
awarded to the coa! company.
Mr. Cochran, when he presented the re
port, stated that he had a communication
from Mrl Jn,tte, in which he said he would
furnish all the coal needed at $20,000 per
year, instead of $3 49 per ton. according to
his previous bid. The Allegheny Heating
Company's bid was $22,000. A motion was
made and carried to refer the matter back
to the Water Committee, with instructions
to readvertise for bids.
The resolutions awarding all other con
tracts recommended by the different com
mittees were approved.
The appropriation ordinance, which was
published recently, was presented by Chair
man Watson, of the Finance Committee, and
caused a lively discussion.
Mr. Henricks moved to refer the ordi
nance back to the Finance Committee to
give the standing committees a chance to be
heard. Mr. Henricks said that some of the
committees had not been given enough
' money. One committee had been allowed
$13,000: it now had a debt of $2,000, and
wouldn't have enough money.
Mr. Cochrane opposed sending it back; to
add to the appropriations meant, to increase
the millage; let the committee economize.
Mr. Henricks claimed that there had not
been a proper adjustment. The Boads Com
mittee had been cut and Parks hadn't His
motion to send back was defeated and the
ordinance was passed by a vote of 15 ayes to
2 noes.
Mr. Henricks presented a resolution ask
ing the Allegheny members of the Legisla
ture to oppose any grade crossing bill for
railroads that will curtail the city's powers,
impose any costs on the city for changing
existing grades or that will give any jail
road power to determine when a crossing
shall be changed. The resolution was
Mr. Watson presented a resolution in
structing the superintendent of the water
works to discontinue furnishing water to
persons outside of the city on the east side
of East street. The resolution was referred
to the Water Committee.
Very little outside of business of minor
importance was dono in the Common
branch. The ordinance fixing a license on
all peddlers and hucksters, except cripples
and soldiers, was passed. The ordinance
changing the hours for opening and closing
the market house was voted down.
The annual reports of the heads of the de
partments were read in both branches and
Controller Brown reported that the re
ceipts from all sources last year were $991.
08805 and the expenditures $956,793 32.
The debt of the city is $1,564,057 30.
City Engineer Ehlers reported that dur
ing the year 0.89 miles ot street were paved
at a cost ot $35,499 38. There are now 8.66
miles of paved streets in the city.
Superintendent Armstrong, of the water
works, reported that 45,184 feet of pipe had
been put down during the year and that 19,
061,647 gallons of water had been pumped
each day.
The water assessment, according to As
sessor Grubbs, was $215,073 64. During
the year 579 new buildings were erected in
the city.
The Street Committee's expenditure
amounted to $83,328 67. The Survev Com
mittee spent $3,180 62 in establishing'grades
of streets; the Health Committee, $5,239 26;

The New Itnles on the Penn Avenue Line tho
Causo of Complaint.
There is a great amount of grumbling
going on amongthe employes of the Citizens'
traction road over the new rules which go
into effect to-day. A number of gripmen
threatened to quit last night, as they claimed
the new hours of duty'are worse than they
were before.
Beginning to-day there will be but seven
"swing" runs. The first car out will leave
at 5 o'clock, and each one will make five
trips. The regular men will then take pos
session ot the seven cars and the crews of
the latter will be laid off until 5:30 or 6 P. M.
They will then go on and work until mid
night when they will finish their day's
Thirteen "swing" crews were taken off
and added to the list of 10 extra conductors
and 8 gripmen, making 23 extra conductors
for 20 cars. The non-unionists claim that
when they follow a union crew the latter
drop behind on their time and pick up their
passengers. By doing this the non-union
conductors' receipts are not as large as those
of the others and the impression is given
out that he is dishonest.

A BUI Fixing the Standard Ton Other Meas
ures Considered.
Habbisburg, March 14. In the Sepate
to-day the bill lor the appointment of a
commission to select text books for the
schools in townships and boroughs was
negatively reported. Senator Smith, of
Philadelphia, introduced a bill regulating
the amount that shall be considered a ton
of coal (2,000 pounds) and providing for
punishment of those selling short weignt.
The following bills were passed finally:
Bequiring owners or lessees of bituminous
coal mines to pay coroners' fees; fixing three
as the number of road and bridge viewers, one
of whom shall be a surveyor: reducing the au
thority of the lnnacy commission and placing
it under the control of the Board of Charities;
providing for the recovery of bodies of work
men entombed in mines; providing for the ex
amination of anthracite coal maps by adjoining
owners of property; providing for the republi
cation of old volumes of the Pennsylvania
archives; granting permission to the United
States to acquire title to land on the battle
field of Gettysburg for the erection of monu
ments. The vote was reconsidered by which the
bill to validate assessments and reassess
ments in cities of' the- third class, was de
feated. The House considered the following mat
ters: Fow's libel bill was negatively reported. The
Senate bill for the establishment of public
morgues was reported favorably. Among the
bills in place was one by Stevens to limit the
minimum public school term to five months.
The act authorizing the appointment of two
additional clerks in the Internal Affairs De
partment for the purpose of gathering statis
tics, which was defeated on final passage yes
terday, was passed to-day after the adverse
vote had been reconsidered. The vote by
which the bill providing for appeals from as
sessments by county commissioners was de-feated.-was
reconsidered and the bill passed
Tho House Committee Rcfases to .Repeal
tho Grease Butter Law.
Habrisbubg, March 14. The Commit
tee on Health and Sanitation this evening
negatived Bepresentative Marland's bill
for the repeal of the oleomargarine law, and
also his bill to create the office of Dairy
Commissioner, with a necessary staff, to go
on salaries and power to regulate the dairy
and oleomargarine business of the State in
the interest of purity and public health.
Prof. Hugo Blanc, of Pittsburg; Prof.
Williams, of the Natrona Salt Works, and
Dr. Mott, of New York, appeared before
the committee and gave it some very inter
esting facts about the purity of oleomar
garine. The. committee's vote on the question is
reported to have been very close, and one
member raid that if the question had been
on the enacting of a law for the prohibition
of the sale of oleomargarine it would have
been negatived, but as it was for the repeal
of a law which had only been in active
operation since the decision of the Supreme
Conrt on the 'subject six months ago, the
committee did not feel justified in acting: as
it would have liked to. In fact, the question
was considered by the committee as mnch
from a political as from a chemical or busi
ness standpoint.
Judicial General Committee Acts on
Quite a Lot of Bills.
Habrisbubg, March 14. The Judiciary
General Committee this afternoon acted on
the following bills:
Giving lunatic and State hospitals the right
to condemn real estate for use of their build
ings. Negative recommendation.
To provide for the incorporation of savings
banks and institutions without capital stock
for the encouragement of savings. Affirmative
recommendation. Mr. Baker's and Mr.IFow's Australian ballot
bills, with an affirmative recommendation.
These bills differ in some detpils, and the com
mittee decided to let the House decide between
them, but both will fail for lack of time to con
sider them.
To authorize Judges to hold Courts of Oyer
and Terminer, Quarter Sessions and General
Jail Delivery in the absence of Associate
Judges. Affirmative recommendation.
For an additional Court of Common Pleas in
Philadelphia. Affirmative recommendation.
Bequiring deeds, mortgages and other instru
ments ot writing to be filed within 30 days. Af
firmative recommendation.
Prom the exemption of homestead to the
value of S700. Negative recommendation.
5.'o exempt doctors from testifyinz to matters
learned in their professional practice. Nega
tive recommendation.
They Think the Worst Dangers to Their
Business Are Now Past.
Habbisbubg, March 14. Now that all
the liquor bills are out of the Ways and
Means Committee, their especial champions
feel much easier, in spite of the fact that all
the bills but one were negatived. It was
the uncertainty that worried them. The
one bill reported favorably is that of Rep
resentative McDonald, of Lackawanna. The
intent ot it is to make the license fees in
cities which thought they were in the fourth
class and below, just what they would have
been had not the Supreme Court declared
that classification unconstitutional.
Mr. Graham,-the Chairman of the Ways
and Means Committee, docs not think the
bill likely to be reached in time for passage.
Consequently, the liquor dealers in the
cities mentioned may prepare themselves to
pay a $500 fee until the next session of the
.Legislature, provided the adoption of pro
hibition in June docs not bring liquor li
censes to a full stop anyhow.
Banks Not Always Able to Tell Jnst When
They Will Fail.
Habbisburg, March 14. The Senate
Banking Committee tijis afternoon consid
ered Senator Newmyer's' bill making it a
misdemeanor, punishable by fine and im
prisonment, for any bank official to receive
a deposit within ten day's of the bank be
coming insolvent The committee thinks
it might be a difficult matter at times for a
banker to know to a day in advance that he
was going to become insolvent, and unless
Senator Newmyer can explain the matter
to their satisfaction, next week, the bill
will be negatived.
The committee will make a favorable re
port on the bill to extend the charter of
State banks.
County Seat Removnls.
Habbisbubg, March 14. Mr. Maxey's
bill providing for the removal of county
seats was reported favorably this morning.
While general in its character, it is in
tended to apply particularly to Susque
hanna conntv, some of whose citizens want
yto remove their county seat from Montrose

Habbisbubg, March 14. Harry Sproul,
T. B. Ijea and W. J. Martin, of Pittsburg,
were heire to-day to try to induce a change
of feeling concerning the proposed tax on
brokers. The present tax is 3 per cent on
their net receipts, and the new revenue bill
imposes instead a'tax of 2 per cent on their
gross receipt.

The Anaconda. Copper Smelting Works In
nzontana Destroyed.
Helena, March 14. The most disastrou s
fire in the history of the Territory occurred
at 6 o'clock this morning at Anaconda.
The lower works of the Anaconda Smelting
Company were entirely destroyed. The
concentrator and stamp mill alone were
saved. The works were nearing comple
tion, and were filled with costly machinery,
thought to be the most expensive iu the
world. The loss will reach 51,000,000.
The fire is thought to be a well-laid plot,
as an excellent fire patrol is constantly on
duty, but when the fire was discovered it
had such a start that nothingcould be done.
The Anaconda Company is a member of the
copper syndicate, and its output is over
8,000,000 pounds of copper a month. The fire
will reduce the output one-third. What is
known as the upper works are running full
force, and, upon the completion of the plant
destroyed to-day. the company estimated it
would be able to turn out about 17,000,000
pounds of copper each month.
Her Remarknblo Case Puzzling Her Physi
cians nnd Friends.
Attica, March 14. The case of Mrs.
Emma Althouse, the sleeping wonder, be
comes more puzzling as time passes, for she
is still alive and hardly a3 feeble as she was
two weeks ago. Then she was given up as
dead, to all intents and purposes, and a re
port was circulated that she was dead. Last
evening wh en the correspondent of The Dis
patch called at the little two-and-a-half-story
cottage at the top of the Bennington
Hill, a few rods from the postoffice, he was
met by the sleeper's sister, Miss Katie Toms,
who was rather reluctant to talk about her
"Emma is very feeble," she said, "but is
able to whisper to her attendants, and the

A Forcer and Real , Estate Speculator
Easily Elades Justice.
CHiCAGO.March 14. William H. Davis,
a well-known builder and real estate dealer,
was arrested to-day at the door of the Chi
cago Trust and Savings Bank, charged with
victimizing the President of the institution,
D. H. Tolman. Forgery was the specifica
tion, but the purpose was to hold Davis for
an extensive series of offenses, such as sell
ing to each of a number of people the same
piece of property. The prisoner quickly
gave hail for tHe forgery and disappeared.
The arrest was weil planned. Davis had
an appointment with Mr. Tolman at the
bank, and before the hourarrived'the Presi
dent had sworn out a warrant and given the
document to an officer, who was stationed in
the bank entrance to await the real estate
man. Davis' arrival was prompt; his arrest
was equally so. Both events were surpassed
in celerity, h6wever, by his" rplease, he
scheduling the required s'eenrity of 51,000,
and walking out before it was realized that
additional warrants were necessary.
By the Coroner's Jury Which Investigated
the Murder of Dawson.
Chablestoit, S. C., March 14. The
inquest in Captain Dawson's case was con
cluded to-day. The proceedings, notwith
standing a drenching rain, attracted a great
crowd of spectators. Four witnesses were
examined. Policeman Gordon, to whom
Dr.'McDow, the prisoner, surrenderedtes
tified to that fact and related a conversation
with the prisoner en route to the station
house. The only material statement is that
the prisoner admitted killing Dawson.
The testimony practically developed
nothing new. Dr. McDow having declined
to make a statement before the jury. The
verdict was as follows: "That the deceased,
Captain F. W. Dawson, came to his death
from a gunshot wound inflicted by a gnn in
the hands of Dr. T. B. McDow, and that
Moses Johnson (colored) was an accessory
before the fact."
Thurston Thinks a Cabinet Portfolio Is Sour
Grapes, Anyhow.
Chicago, March 14. Judge John M.
Thurston, of Omaha, who was temporary
Chairman of the National Convention which
nominated General Harrison, said to-night:
"I am not disappointed in not being made a
member of the Cabinet For a while I was
inclined to think that I could be of service
to the Northwest as Secretary of ihe Inte
rior, and if I had been made anything that
is what I would have liked, hut I suppose,
if for no other reason, my connection with
railway interests was sufficient to prevent
my selection."
Judge Thurston added that there is no
office which General Harrison can now offer
him that would be any intiucementor him
to leave his present business, and that, after
all, he is rather glad he was not made a
member of the Cabinet. The Judge is re
turning from Washington. He leaves here
to-morrow for his home in Nebraska.
He Is Remanded for Sentence, Which Slay

the late war, or the families, pleaded guilty
before United States Commissioner Shields
this afternoon, and was remanded for sen
tence on Thursday. The penalty for the
two forgeries specified in his arraignment
are 20 years.
The Supreme Conrt Decides Against the
Aspirations of Cnrr.
Chabiestoit, W. Va., March 14. The
Supreme Court met this afternoon, and in
the gubernatorial question between B. S.
Carr, President of the State Senate, and
Governor Wilson, decided that Carr had no
ground upon which to take the office of
Governor. This gives Wilson the chair
until the contest will have been settled be
tween General Goff and Judge Fleming.
Incmlls Will Wield the Gavel.
Washington; March 14. The time
spent by the Republican Senators in caucus
to-day was occupied almost entirely in dis
cussing the status of the President pro-tem-pore.
After a spirited debate' it was de
cided that the Senate has the power to select
a President pro-tempore for the entire ses
sion, and Mr. Ingalls will continue to act
as such.
