At,i.twtown, Pa , July 88. About a

when he cynically admitted in debate
Ilia' he used It for the purpoee of
bribing newspapers, is no longer to be
applied to secret service purposes. The
money placed at the disposal of the
Chancellor will be duly accounted for
In the public documents. Chancellor
Von Caprlvl also published an account
of the uses to which the fund ba9 been
applied In former years, but the vague
ness and lack of detail leave the exact
disposition of certain sums n matter of
conjecture, so that Bismarck's famous
statement remains unchallenged.

COMMISSIONER ROBERT UI ITS FAYOR.
A Law Needed to Step the Unlawful
Sale ef Llquer Mere Power
Wanted by the Paliee,
The House Committee on the District
of Columbia this morning gave a public
hearing to those Interested In the bills
Introduced by Mr. Atkinson of Penn
sylvanla, regulating the sale of distilled
and fermented liquors In the District.
Representatives Burton nnd Mooro were
tho only members of the committee
present, but the hearing proceeded.
The Commissioners woro Invited to be
present, but did not attend.
Mr. Dodeo spoko In favor of tho bill.
Ho wa9 satisfied that tho members of
the committee hnd no conception of the
needs and situation of tho District. It
has been stated that Washington has a
(iitfiATCii vnoroiiTiox OP CTltMK
for Its sl.o than any other city in tho
United States. Ho wished to say to
prevent auy misapprehension that ho
was neither n prohibitionist nor total
abstainer, but was mcroly stating facts.
Ilu then recounted the statistics of crlmo
In tho District, showing that tho nbovc
statement was correct.
Tho statistics show that tha causo of
tho trcatcr majority of the Crimea was
drunkenness. Mr. Dodgo then men
tioned a number of Instances of mur
ders nnd assaults occurring during
Hcpttmbcr nnd October, 18M), the direct
cNiifc of which was traceable to liquor.
The esse of Frsnk Ward was recalled.
Mr. Dodge also spoke of the deadly
habit of carrying weapons, nnd the num
ber of crimes which has resulted from
this custom. He regarded
COCKAI.KD WKAfOXS AXIJ MQ'Oll
the greatest banes of tho District.
Ciiniinulog he said Hint one of the
Judees within the last year had In
siiuctid tho jury that if tho defendant
was sodrunk tlmt he didn't know what
ho was doing, a verdict of guilty could
not be given. He thought that drunk
enness should not be considered an ex
cuse for crime.
Mr. Scbade, the attorney for the
liquor dealers, said that not n person
piescnt was In favor of the bill, not
withstanding Mr. Dodge's remarks. He
did pot believe that the District Com
ANYBODY KI.SE FAVOIIKD THK HILL.
The city of Washington has the best
system of liquor licensing in the United
States. If there are any bad places In
the District, it was with the connivances
of the Commissioners, ami, as a repre
sentative of the hotel and restaurant
keepers, he did not thank them for
having such places.
Mr. rkhade then read the rules gov
erning the licenses for lMJ and showed
their similarity to the bill now Intro
duced. The "only difference between
the two was that the new bill required a
deposit of $300. He saw no necessity
of this, and was opposed to It. lie
thought It would be better to leave
well enough alone and not Interfere
with the present system.
Sir. Tobrlnt also spoke against tbe
bill. "No set of Congress," he said,
"could make the liquor laws more
stringent thaa tbe Commissioners now
WITH THEIR PKOHIBITORY POWXK
under the present law." He then read
tbe decisions and laws showing that tbe
Commissioners had full power to issue
or reject licenses. Tbe decision ia the
Msngsn ease clearly shows that tbe
Commissioners have full discretionary
There is no government in tbe world
tbat has more power tbaa tbe Board of
CummUsioaers of tbe District.
A peculiar feature of tbe bill woe
that every itron who wished to engage
in tbe liquor business must pay a lieease
of &MM), and for a bar room )0, but
ao divbloa is msde bet wee a wholesale
aud retail dealers; thus tbe dealer wish
ing a retail lieease would bave to pay
$800. Mr. Tobriei concluded by eoa
demaiaK tbe last sectioa of the bill,
which gives tbe Cosawkstoeers full dis
cretion as to Issuiag licenses, aad there
fore there would be ao use ef aay
rules goveraiag Ike liceaisa The aaw

TO EVADE THK REafOKSJBIUTY.
Mr. Rosea B. Moultoa, tha attorney
of the W. C. T. U., spoke of several
features of the aew bill which were aa
improvesueat oa tbe preseat system.
The aew bill would throw tha burdea
of proof osuo a perse charged with
uala w fully carry tag oa the liquor trade.
For the element for high lieease ia the
bill ke bad ao admiraltoa. The
aristocratic salooa where the member
of Coagrees aad other iH.HBgiitsaad
persoas mat were the pwoes which
ruiaed youag mea, aad aot the tow

Mr. lioore asked if the auaaher of
saluoas were decreased would the
aiaouat of U4U0T be Was.
Mr. Mouitoa said that ke was positive
that the asaouat sold would be gseater.
Ex C'oagressuisa Price made tew
remarks, (a which he declared kit pro
bibitioa teadwu-W, but he would be
better satisaed with the aew bill tbaa
Ccmmisaioaer ttobttt. who arrived

" 1 he new bill gives the CommWMon
ers or their agents power to enter a

liquor Is suspected, while under the
ptetenl ystem the CommlMroners have
not that power. Gentlemen think that
the Commissioners have power to con

"The matter of liquor licenses is one
of the greatest troubles with which the
Oontmmioners have to contend. More
protection should tie granted to the
bOMteholders than under the nrewit
system. A person on the corner oppo
site a saloon should have as much
power to object to the saloon as the
persons on the same side as the
Coranel Robert then spoke of the
lack or rowan
which the Commissioners have to annul
licenses at present, but which would be
given Under the new bill.
The feature of the now bill, which
provides Imprisonment as a part of the
penally for unlawful selling, ho was op
posed to it as It would create too great
objection to the bill. He was opposed
also to the system of wholeealo licenses.
If nn honest man could not keep a
orocety store without keeping a liquor
store also ho would make the amount of
a wholesale license higher.
Tho "club" question, Colonol Robert
thought should lie dealt with In an en
tirely different bill. The Colonol then
pave his experience with a Washington
club nnd their means of evading the
liquor laws, Tho club power at present
Is very great, and ho would fear the
passage of the bill unless tho
ci.crt sr.cTiorj was stiuckkx out.
The provision of the bill punishing
police officers, ho thought, would
weaken the law. Tho policemen are sim
ply agents for tho Commissioners, nnd
tho public should hold the Commission
ers responsible for their acts, nnd tho
efficiency of tho government of tho Dis
trict would bo greatly preserved If tho
public would recognue that fact.
In reply to Mr. Schndc's question ns
to whether or not tho Commissioners
had full discretionary power over
licenses. Colonel Robert stated that they
hnd, but they bad not full power to pro
vent the unlawful salo of liquor, and
this power would be given by the pass
nee of the new bill nnd tho labor ot the
Commissioners would also begroatly re
duced. At tbe conclusion of Colonel Robert's
remarks the committee adjourned.
Among the temperance advocates pres
ent were Mrs. La Fetra. president of the

During the encampment of the Michi

were notified, but made no arrests. On
Saluiday night the moulders to the

got together and proceeded to drive all

sent them all back to their camp in a

Nkw York, July 89. A Herald spe
cial from Saml Point, Ungn Island,
Alaska, dated July 11, says: "The
cutter Rush attlved here yestertlay.
She boarded all the vessels remaining
here, distributed the President's procla
mation regarding Behrlng Hen, but
would give no Information as to whether
the vessels were to be seized. The big
gest part of the sealing fleet has already
sailed for Behrlng Sea, and the rest fol
low to day. They all say they will go
regardless of the proclamation, though
It is known that many, instead of tak
ing the short road through Ounlmik
Pass to the sealing grounds, are going
further west, hoping to elude the cutter
by going In through Amoughta Pass.
'"The steamer Mischief came from
Victoria to takedown what skins were
caught In the Pacific Ocean, so they
would not be lost If the vessels were
selrtd In Behrlng Pea. Victoria sealers
claim that the Mischief brought reliable
news that they would not bo disturbed
in Ikhting Sea this year, and they say
they are going to make a big year of It.
The Gtrman schooner Adelo, sailing
from Hamburg, Is also here and !ound
to tbe scaling ground, so It Is llkoly
Gcimany will lie Interested In the ques
tion with Rnglaml.
"Tho Rush sailed today for Ounrt
laska and the Snl Islands. In n few
dnys It will be known what her policy
Is, as thcro will lie plenty of vessels for
her to sclc. Tho schooner O. R.
White of Seattle was seized In Ouna
I ask a by the customs officers there for
having on board more breech-loadlug
arms thnu her mnnlfcst showed.
"Tho tVlaskn Commercial Compiny,
now that they have not the seal Islands,

load of machinery nnd expert miners to
tho King gold mine nt Ungn. and are
determined to sec whether the mines of
this country nre worth working. They

'The schooner Nlblo, a Victoria
scalor, Is supposed to have Iteen lost, as
nothing has been heanl of her since
VicToniA, B. C, July 20 Reports
from the ccallng lleet received yester
day show that the boats have taken 15,
7 15 skins. None of the schooners were
molekled or even sighted by any of the
American cutters. They had go.-xl
hunting weather, and, juiialmr by their
half season's catch, the full season's
catch will lie a very successful one.
