A friend of Senator Cameron says that
gentleman desires to sneceed himself in the
United States Senate and can do it, whether
Quay likes it or not. Washington offi
cial life is very congenial to him,
and his closest friends are in the
tipper house of Congress. The idea of set
tling down to retired life or a life of lousi
ness Is distasteful to him. General Hender

sources of accusations will be kept quiet as
usual. Secretary Noble refuses to talk
rSrECIAI. TELICRAJC ffO TUX DISPATCH.1
Washington, July 10. "I saw Senator
Cameron for a few minutes after he returned
home yesterday," said aPennsylvanian who
arrived in the city this morning, "and I can
assure you that it is all bosh about his not
being in the race lor the Senatorship. He
won't only be in the race, but he will
be in to win, and he will win with
or without the consent of Quay or
anybody else. But the talk about his beiDg
opposed is absurd. If he wants the place
he will practically have no opposition. Ad
mitting that Quay has taken a more prom
inent part in the active work of the party,
Cameron has furnished more of the sinews
of war than any other man in the State, and
beside that, the name of Cameron is yet a
name to conjure with in Pennsylvania poli
ties. As to influence in Congress, if Quay
were to remain his life in the Senate he
trould not acquire the hold on "that body
that is wielded by Don Cameron."
Cameron Wants to Stay.
"But," it was suggested, "the story is
that Cameron doesn't desire to remain in the
Senate; that he intends to retire from poli
tics." "Well, as to that," was the reply, "what
in the world would the man do? He has
been in politics all his life. He is rich, and
does not need to make more money. He
is fond of Washington as a place
of residence. All of the most
intimate friends of his life are here. In no
ether spot on earth can he find such close
and congenial friends as he has in the mem
bership of the Senate of the United States.
These friends will undoubtedly remain in
the Senate as long as they live, and out of
the Senate he would be divorced from
them in great measure. Moreover, the
Senator is not a man to remain idle.
He must have something to occupy his
mind. While he makes business invest
ments, and makes them shrewdly, he doesn't
care to devote his whole mind to business.
The majority of his later investments are in
real estate here in your city of Washington,
and tbese are usually the result of informa
tion given him by trustworthy real estate
agents, and he therefore does not give his
mind to the investigation ot chances for
profit. I know from his own mouth that
lie Likes ibe Society
of Washington, but out of the Senate he
would be simnly a rich retired gentleman
in Washington society, and not the million
aire Senator who exercises a strong influ
ence on the Republicans of the Senate,
though be cannot shine as an orator, and
who could have nearly the solid vote of the
Democratic side of that body for any office
to which they could elect him. Those who
do not come into close contact with the
Senator do not know him. He does not at
tempt to make himself popular, hut Jie
makes many and close friends, and, like his
father, grapples them to him with hooks of
steel. He can have all the freedom he
wants as a member of the Senate, while out
of office he would absolutely not know what
to do with himself. Let me make this pre
diction: Unless the heavens should fall,
and Pennsylvania become a Democratic
State, Don Cameron will remain in the
Senate until he dies, or resigns on account
of old age."
The gentleman who gives the foregoing
interview has been an admirer of the Cam
erons, father and son, all his life, and is in
a position to know something of the Sena
tor's intentions in politics.
SILENT AS TO a'ANNER.
Secretary Stone Will Not Talk Abont Him,
but Explains a Liberal Policy.
Washington, July 10. Secretary
Noble was seen late this afternoon and
asked if there were any truth in 'the
reiterated reports that he desired
to have a new Commissioner of
Pensions in place of Corporal Tanner.
He was just getting into the department
carriage at the time to be driven to his
home. He said that he had nothing to say
about the reports. He made no answer and
immediately drove off when asked if this
statement could be interpreted that the pub
lication had some foundation.
Secretary .Noble, in an interview with
Delegate Carey, of Wyoming, to-day, said
that the policy of this administration would
be broad and liberal toward the Territories;
that the orders of the late Land Commis
sioners, McFarland and Sparks, suspending
land patents in a large portion of Wyoming
Krani flf 1l(itfiatlnnAryv!l and Mnnl listiilrl
be rescinded; that the lands where there J
were no evidences of minerals should be
sent to patent; that persons who settled
upon the public lands or purchased lands
in good faith should have their
evidences of title; that this was
his policy and that Acting Commissioner
Stone was in accord with him. The Secre
tary also informed Delegate Carey that he
might say to the settlers of Wyoming that
they should have their patents and that, in
addition to home rule, every proper encour
agement would be given ta efforts looking
to the advancement of Territories and their
admission as States whenever prepared to
assume the duties of statehood.
AN HONEST CANDIDATE.
General Henderson Doesn't Seek a Secluded
Place to Say He Wants tbe Speaker.
ship His Competitors and
the Extra Session.
iSrXCIAt. TELEGRAM TO TUB DISrATCB.1
Washington, July 10. If there have
been any doubts whether there are to be
four Western candidates for the Speaker
ship of the next House, those doubts can be
set at rest. General D. B. Henderson, of
Iowa, who has spent the day here, says:
If anyone thinks thatl am a.stalking-horse
for anyone else, he may as well dismiss that
fancy. I am in the field as an earnest and
active candidate. I do not say that I shall win.
for none of the candidates will hardly be fool
ish enough to speak with any such confidence.
Tbe situation is not clear enough to make an
estimate of ultimate strength. There are five
candidates, of whom four are from the West,
fori suppose that tbe Eastern men are dis
posed to call Ohio west. Western men them
selves might draw the boundary further west
than Ohio. But however that may be desig
nated, there are five candidates inthefleld for
Speaker Reed, JlcKInley, Cannon, Burrows
and myself, and it is not necessary, except for
tho mere matter of modesty, to write myseir
in too small caps. I am in the field to stay. I
am not covering up any scheme. I am not ran
ning in tbe Interest of any other candidate. I
am a candidate pure and simple, and shall do
the best I can in the canvass. We shall know
more about these things after a while. Mean
time we do not even know when Congress is to
There is no longer any reasonable doubt
that there is to be a session of the next Con
gress before December. The only point
which may be said to be nndetermined is
the date. The President's Private Secretary
incidentally said to-day that he believed an
extra session had practically been deter
mined upon. The President himself was
quite as specific in his statement to Senator
Washburn, of Minnesota. The difference
was that the President suggested to Mr.
Washburn that it would be expedient for
him to return from Europe by the middle of
October. It is certain, however, that the
Congress will not be convened until after
the representatives from the new States
shall been elected. The day fixed by sev
eral Senators who have conversed with the
President as most probable is the last Mon
day in October, or the first Monday in
ACCUSATIONS ON THE QDIET.
The President Decides it Is Best to Keep tbe
Source of Cunrxes Secret.
rSrECTAI. TXLXGRAM TO THE DISPATCH.
Washington, July 10. The President
has made a final decision in response to
many requests that have been made for in
formation as to charges preferred against.
office-holders, that have been made the basis
of removals or against applicants for office.
The practice in all the departments is to
withhold all information as to the reasons
for removal from office. A protest was re
cently made to the President against this.
It was represented to him that under this
practice an applicant for office was deprived
of the privilege granted to the meanest and
worst criminal in the country that ot fac
ing his accuser, cross-examining them and
replying to their charges. The office-seeker
is not even permitted to know what tbe
charges against him are nor who makes
them. It was submitted to the President
by a centleman who came in behalf of a
friend of his, whosn appointment had been
delayed by just such charges, that this se
crecy was not fair nor just to the man ac
cused. To this the President replied, in effect,
that it would never do to disclose the names
of the men who made the charges, as that
practice would prevent many people from
telling what they knew against candidates.
It might be a hardship in some cases, but it
wes the less evil of the two. The same rule
prevails as to removals. If anyone seeks
information on this subject, it will be neces
sary to make application elsewhere that at
tbe Government departments. There will,
of course, be exceptions as to the class of re
movals, for which the President is com
pelled to give a reason to the Senate, but it
is to the Senate only that these reasons are
to be communicated.
THE NEW COMMISSIONER.
Horace A. Taylor Expected to Invigorate tbe
Office ofRailvray Commlstloucr.
rsrxciAi. TXLXOBAX TO TBE SISI-ATCH.1
Washington, July 10. Horace A.
Taylor, of Wisconsin, who succeeds the ex
Confederate, General Jos. E. Johnston, as
Federal Commissioner of Railways, is the
editor of a newspaper at Budson, Wis., ana
was earnestly recommended for the position
by Senators Sawyer and Spooner, who ap
pear to have a good deal of influence with
the administration. The office of Commis
sioner of Bailroads, when it was first created,
was expected to be one of the most impor
tant in the Government service. It was a
forerunner of the Inter-State Commerce
Commission, and had its origin'iii the same
movement in Congress which has succeeded
in placing important restrictions upon the
railroads. But this office has not realized
the expectations ot those who originated it.
In the early years of its administration it
was tainted with jobbery, and one of its
officials was shown to hold close relations to
one or the corporations he was appointed
to watch. General Johnston has conducted
the office on a high plane, but he has not
been able to bring sufficient energy to its
administration, which could hardly be ex
pected in a man past 70 years of cge. The
new Commissioner is said to be a man of
great activity and energy.

Washington, July 10. The District of

Chicago, July 10. The National En

THE EAGING WATERS.
From 4 to 30 Persons Lost In the Flood at
Johnstown, N. IT. A Cloudburst tbe
Cause of tbe Disaster Spectators
on a Bridge Washed Away.
Schenectady, N.T., July 10. There
is as yet no certainty of the loss of more
than four lives at Johnstown. These victims
were bn a bridge viewing the flood after
the storm. They had beeu warned to keep
off the strncture, as it was considered dan
gerous. One end of the bridge dropped into
the water, but was not carried away.
The damage in the valley of the Caya
dutta to mills, roads, bridges and crops will
reach $30,000. At 3:10 this afternoon one
track of the Central Railroad bridge at
Fonda and two tracks at the washout
at Aikens were repaired sufficiently to al
low trains to pass, and orders were issued
for all trains to remain on their own road. '
With the slight delay of using a few miles
of single track, all trains will be running
as usual before morning.
Johnstown citizens are engaged in remov
ing the wreckage of Schriever's mill, near
the depot, where they think other bodies
have been lodged. It is believed that the
two men who went down on a plank lost their
lives at the dam, and that their bodies were
carried down the stream, and are now float
ing in the Mohawk river. No one really
knows how many people were drowned or
who is missing. The flood was so great and
the current so swift that no help could be
rendered without great danger.
There are some who place the loss of life
as high as 30 persons. It will certainly not
exceed that number, and probably
not over half that many were drowned.
The Ferry street bridge consisted of
an arch spanning the entire width of the
stream. It was upon one of the plank walks
that the people were standing when tbe
arch was carried away. f

to which objection had beenmade by counsel

It only remains for me to consider if the evi

New York. Julv 10. No definite ar-s
rangements are yet made for the reception
of Champion Sullivan when he gets to this
city on his way home to Boston, but there
is no doubt that a good deal of red paint
and other festive properties will be used on
that occasion. Until it is known just when
and how tbe Sullivan party will return to
this city, no plan for the reception will bj(
made. If the return trip is made by water a
steamer will be chartered to go down the bay
to meet Sullivan and bring him to the city.
Whichever way he comes he will be escorted
to the Vanderbilt Hotel, where there will
be a great banquet in his honor. It is ex.
pected that he will then go immediately to
Boston to see his mother, who is sick, and
will remain there some time. As soon as
he can leave his mother he will be brought
back to this city and made the star of a

Steve Brodle Tells How Mitchell albd Moore
Used Him After tbe Flghi
New York, July 10. Steve Blrodie, Dr.
Liston, of the New York AthleticClub, and
George West arrived here to-nifcht. They
are tbe first to get back from thdf Sullivan
Kiirain fight. Brodie took wifth him the
camp stool which Kilrain sat on in the ring.
It was agood flgbt while it I&stied, and Jake
stood It well. Under the circumstances Mltefi-
ell acted shamefully toward htm. When it was
over Pony Moore and Mitchell walked arm in
arm to the railroad station and dropptd in to
get something to eat on the way. Mike
Donovan ran after them, and Kilrain
stopped behind crying. Johnny Murphy left
Kilrain in the ring while he went to tbe rail
road station to get a wagon. , Jake got tired
waiting and started to walk with Jnst his ring
clothes on. Dr. His ton then took ofC bis coat
and gave it to him. Jake was still crying, and

wagon, when be got into it. Mitchell never

KILBAIN IN PAIN.
The Punished Tuglllst Passes Through
Little Bock Bearing Bad Marks of
the Fight Not Sure That
It Was Fair.
Little Bock, July 10. The Kilrain
party passed through Little Bock this after
noon, They were passengers on the Iron
Mountain train from the Sonth, en route to
St. Louis. The party of sluggers consisted
of Jake Kilrain. Charley Mitchell, his
trainer; Pony Moore, of England; Dr.
Dougherty, Kilrain's physician; Prof.
Mike Donovan, the man who threw up the
sponge which gave the fight to Sullivan,
and Kid Murphy, Kilrain's bottle holder.
Kilrain did not leave tbe cor with the oth
ers to get dinner. He was very sick and
from all appearances he was badly used up.
The fact that he was sore from ring punish
ment could not be better illustrated than by
noticing him when he attempted to put on
his coat. This was difficult and was not ac
complished without the assistance of
Mitchell, who carefully helped him
on with it. Mitchell was not care
ful enough, and when the coat
was being pulled off it was noticed that the
pugilist winced as if in great pain. He
was finally seated and supported by big
Sillows, being wearied of the ride from
Tew Orleans. His face was discolored and
resembled mahogany more than anything
else, while his left eye was black and blue,
and just under his right eye he wore a cut,
the shape ot a crescent, and that optic was
also highly discolored.
Seeing that he was suffering, the reporter
did not press an interview, but Kilrain did
say that he had been licked, but not fairly,
and intimated that he would take the fight
up at the 66th round at tome future time.
He acknowledged that it was one of his off
days, and said if the fight had come off the
day before he would have made a better
showing. He made no complaint, however,
only that he was not at his best. While
the visitors and the reporter were convers
ing with Kilrain, Mitchell and Donovan
were on the floor engaged in a friendly

While the Associated Press agent was en
deavoring to have the engine uncoupled to
take him to New Orleans and thus save his

threatened to shoot. It looked as though the

"I don't like to celebrate the result of the

New Yoek, July 10. When the lawyers
and electrical experts met in Bourke Cock
rane's office in the Equitable bnilding this
morning in the examination before Keferee
Becker to decide whether William Kemm
ler's electrical execution would be a cruel
and nnusual punishment, E. T. Gerry was
not on hand. He sent another telegram
from Newport, which said that he wouldn't
return to New York before the 20th or 22d
ot this month.
Electrical Expert Harold P. Brown took
the chair again, when the hearing began.
Ho said that not all of the animals which
had undergone experiments were dissected
immediately after the experiments. Some
were burned, while the bodies of others
were carted away. In the experiments at
Columbia College one of the dogs was
burned, but it caused such an odor that the
others were removed.
The horses used in the experiments in
Edison's laboratory were removed the next
day, while the calves were cut up by butch
ers'! "Were the horses cut up?"

"The horses and dogs had that oppor

not actually killed in the experiment, as in
many of them attempts were made to find
tbe lowest pressure which wonld cause
death. One dog they found could not be
killed with the highest power of the con
tinuous current. 'Mr. Brown said the dog's
name was Ajax.
"Because ne defied the lightning, I sup

would have complained that the doc was

In the opinion of the witness a current
could be supplied by the apparatus fur
nished which would inevitably kill the
subject. Mr. Brown acknowledged that he
had never seen a man killed and had never
known the physical condition of any men
killed by contact with electric light wires.
He nevertheless was confident from his
knowledge of the subject, that the current
would inevitabljr kill.
Mr. Brown said it was impossible to ex
actly determine the electrical energy re

factors of the electrical energy cannot be

to 2,000 volts with the electrodes of the
proper sizes would be fatal with the current
passing from head to foot."
Even with a man with a resistance of 60,
000 ohms, Mr. Brown would not vary his
opinion if the surface of the electrodes was
kept wet. Death would ensue, he calcu
lated, in less than 15 seconds, and in this
time the electrodes would not become ap
preciably heated. He donbted whether salt
water if nsed to moisten tbe electrode could
ever reach the boiling point on account of
tbe rapid radiation of tbe heart. Mr. Brown
was positive that the cnlprit who got the
benefit of the electric shock would never ap
preciate the current, which travels faster
even than the transmission of nerve sensa

CHILDREN IN THEATERS.
A Spirited Debate Upon the Subject In the
House of Commons.
London, July 10. In the House of
Commons to-night, during the debate on
the cruelty to children bill, Mr. Jennings
moved to permit children under 10 years of
age to perform, an exception being made in
the case of acrobatic performances. He
read a letter from Henry Irving, in which
the writer said: "Early years in the
theater are of infinite value to the members
of our calling. Some of the most dis
tinguished actresses owe their success largely
to tbe fact that they were brought up in the
theater. The stage was to them both
nursery and schoolroom."
Mr. Jennings instanced Kate and Ellen
Terry, Mrs. Kendall, Mrs. Bancroft and
Edmund Kean as those who had been
brought up on the stage. Mr. Labonchere
supported the motion. He .said children
were not ill treated on the stage. Theatri
cal people were of kindly nature. The only
injury the children were likely to incur was
from overmuch cake. They learned nothing
wrong behind the scenes, where decorum
was maintained. Their earnings assisted
many impoverished parents. The motion
was rejected 188 to 139.

He insisted that she ought to marry him,
as the Lord was clearly on his side in the
