BURKE ON IffiWAR PATH
Forwards Another Batch of Charges
Against Collector Herring.
EFFORTS TKOBABLY IN VAIN
Commissioner Miller Is Evidently Dis
posed to Pceorate the Collector with
a Coat of Whltowash-Some Echoes
from the Ineomo Tax.
Special to the Scranton Tribune.
Washington, Nov. 25. "Billy" Burke
has forwarded another batch of
charges to the treasury department
against Collector of Internal Revenue
Herring. They have been in the hands
of Secretary Carllslle for several days,
but are now on the desk of Commis
sioner Miller. The package containing
the additional evidence against Her
ring Is a rather bulky looking docu
ment, but whether it contains enough
genuine stuff to cause Herring's remov
al Is unknown.
Commissioner Miller when seen by
The Tribune representative, had not
examined the papers, and declined to
dlHcuss the probable outcome of the
case. To a man up a tree It looks as
though Mr. Miller Is preparing a coat
of whitewash for Herring, unless Mr.
Burke can put up a stronger case than
he has already done. The last batch
may contain something - new, which
may compel Commissioner Miller to
make an unfavorable report on Her
ring. Without the latest evidence will
warrant his removal it can be set down
that Mr. Herring will be allowed to
continue In office during the present
The Lamented Income Tnx.
Commissioner Miller's annual report
contains some Interesting statistics. Of
the late and lamented Income tax law
the commissioner has this to say:
The work of the Income tax division was
practically terminated May 20, 1895, when
upon a rehearing of the above case before
a full bench of the Supremo court, It was
finally decided that tho whole income tax
law was null and void.

Immediately cent to the collectors to sus

cation, the same were Hied, secure from
The number of taxable persons making
returns was 48,(172, and the amount of tax
from that source was tH.1-S.0dl.45; the num
ber of taxable corporations making re
turns was 29,Ki3, nnd the tnx from these
corporations amounted to $9,815.G7.24; the
aggregate number of taxable persons and
corporations' was 78,825, and the ngKrcKale
amount of tax from both sources was
Slf).943,748.. Returns were made by 70,
!2 persons and 20,248 corporations who
claimed they were not subject to the tax,
nmklmr nn aggregate of 90.4IRI persons nnd
corporations claiming exemption from the
tax. Tho decision of the Supreme court
of the United States, of April 8, lt95, which
declared that Incomes from rents from
real estato, and from state and municipal
bonds were not taxable, undoubtedly had
the effect to largely Increase the number
of non-taxable returns.
It Is also known that many persons and
corporations required by the act tq make
returns, failed to do so.
From the reports of collectors ami

It Is Humored That Pennsylvania Wilt
Not Ho Recognised with Chairmanship
of Ways and Means Commutes.
Special to the Scranton Tribune.
Washington, D. C. Nov. 25. It Is ru
mored here tonight that Dalzell will be
turned down for chairman of ways and
means committee. It is said that
Speaker Heed has promised the chair
manship to Sereno Payne, of New
York, who is now the ranking Republi
can member of the committee. This is
considered the first move on Mr. Reed's
political checker board for the New
fork delegation for president. His
friends say that If Reed is to get any
delgates from Pennsylvania he will get
them without the assistance of Dalzell
and his friends. v " .
This will be a great disappointment to
Mr. Dalzell, as he and his friends were
confident that he would be put at the
head of that Important committee.

and Explodes Causing Foarfnl
Damago-Causo of the Disaster
to Be Investigated.
Barcelona, Nov. 25. A terrible acci
dent occurred to-day af Palma, capi
tal of the Island of Marjories, 130 miles
south of here. Eighty persons, mostly
women, were engaged in emptying old
cartridges outside the walls of the
town, when one of the cartridges ex
ploded. A large quantity of powder ly
ing about that had been taken out of
cartridges was ignited by the discharge
of the cartridge. A tremendous explo
sion followed and a large number .of
people were killed, but the exact loss of
life cannot yet be learned. Seventeen
dead bodies havo been found, but It Is
feared that many more were killed. their
bodies, perhaps, being blown to atoms,
as a number of those who were at work
have not been accounted for. Forty
persons were seriously wounded and
some will die. Many of the dead and
wounded were found at considerable
distances from the scene of the explo
sion and some of the dead were so burn
ed and mangled as to be almost beyond
Identification. An Investigation Into the
cause of the disaster will be held.
A later dispatch from Palma states
that the loss of life through the explo
sion was far greater than was stated
In the first report of the accident. It is
known that thirty-seven women and
fourteen men were Instantly killed.
Thlrty-flve women and five men wore
seriously Injured, and of this number
twenty have since died.

in conversation to-day, in reply to a
question as to whether or not he had
abandoned fighting for good:
"I am disgusted with the entire busi

what the public may say, whether it be
complimentary or otherwise. I cannot
be Induced to again enter the arena.
They may say that when I whipped
Sullivan he was an old man and that I
never whipped a good man In my career,
but I am fully determined in my pur

blames me for not pulling off the fight
with Fltzsimmons, but I am not dis

not discuss it.
"I bestowed the championship upon
Maher because he Is an Irishman, and
because1 1 prefer that he should bear
and defend that title, rather than place
It in the custody of either an Austra

reasons for recognizing Maher, but you
can print this as coming from me,
"I consider Peter Maher the peer of

will one day demonstrate his right to

TROUBLE W1TB SUSPECTS
Spanish Detectives Too Active In
Harrassing Ship Owners.'
CASE OP THE JOSEPH '. POSTER
Captsln Whealton, Commander of ths
Schooner Detained at Delaware Break,,
water. Has Abandoned the Saspootod
Ship to tho Government.
Washington. Nov. 25. The treasury
department was Informed this after
noon that tho contain of the Joseph
W. Foster, the schooner detained at
Lewes, Delaware, on suspicion of being
about to engase In filibustering expe
ditions, had refused to accept her re
lease. The Information was forwarded
to Attorney General Harmon, and he
will instruct the government officers
having charge of the vessel as to their
duties. It is stated, however, at the
treasury that the captain's action will
not embarrass the department or enure
to the benefit of the captain or the
owners of the vessel In any suit they
have instituted or may institute.
It is stated on what is believed to be
excellent authority that the govern
ment hereafter will exercise Its own
discretion in arresting and detaining
vessels suspected of engaging or about
to engage in filibustering expeditions
In favor of the Cuban insurgents.
Heretofore when the Spanish minister,
Senor De Lome suspected a vessel and
communicated his suspicions to the
United States government the sus
pected shl? was Immediately detained.
In every Instance where such vessel
or her carxo was seised and the case
carried into the courts the vessel and
cargo have both been discharged for
lack of evidence, under our . laws to
hold them. This has embarrassed the
administration .It Is said, and while
it will live up to Its obligations with
Spain it will require In the future more
than mere suspicion of the violation of
its neutrality laws to place It In the
position of ordering custom officers
and the revenue marine service to
seize vessels represented as suspected
of filibustering intentions.
Captain Whealton Wants Damages.
Philadelphia, Nov. 25. Captain
George Whealton, commander of the
schooner Joseph W. Foster, which was
seized by the government at the Dela
ware Breakwater on suspicion of be
ing a filibuster, and which was re
leased today, as there was no evidence
to hold the vessel, arrived here this
evening from Lewes, Delaware. Cap
tain Whealton said that he had aban
doned the vessel to the government.
He said that he proposes to bring suit
in the court of claims against the gov
ernment for the detention of the
schooner. According to Captain Wheal
ton the telegram from the treasury de
partment releasing the vessel, from
the custody of the collector read:
- "Release the vessel, - but bold tier
under suspicion." Captain Whealton
blames the trouble that has been caus
ed him upon detectives employed by
the Spanish government. ' When his
schooner was at anchor below ths olty
a tug brought some ship stores off
to her. The suspected steamer Leon
was lying near the Foster and Cap
tain Whealton supposes that the de
tectives Jumped to the conclusion that
