tlbwppcuianco of Assistant l'njm;ibtor
Henry It. Smith of tho Kssox hail been
cleared up by his discovery at nliouto tin
V eel 1'ourteciitli street, In Nciv York cltv,
nn tiidcruas lsiied nt tho Navy Depart

ordering him to scttlo nccoutits. Ihls
nctlon Is In tho regular lino of Department
proccduie, and was not taken because tiny

nt ctcd wllh tho disappearance become
olllclnlly known somo action will betaken,
nnd I'll master Smith will havo to niveau

muth surprise manifested at his peculiar

to ri turn and asked for tho aid of tho po
lice In finding hint. Ho had drawn $1,200
due him from tho Government at tho Sub
Ttensury tho day of his itrilr.il, and It wis
feared that soma accident might hao be

In tho newspapers with the result tlcslrod.
A carrlago drovo up yesterday morning;

In a few seconds two mci wcro standing on

left arm bandaged and looked as though ho
had Just risen from tho grave. His faeo
wns frightfully pale and his step feeble.
Dr. Chichester almost carried his com
panion up tho steps and Into tho house,
where ho sank lutoa chair speechless and
Dr. Chichester then explained that after

iiuo icstaur.mt for luncheon, lu leaving
the restaurant hu had to pass tluough n
possago-way having u glass door. A p irty
of gentlemen wcro coming tho other way
and pushing against tho door lu an oppo
site direction. Something altiactcd tho
l'aj master's attention Just then, and being
n very powct fttl man, ho pushed with his
left hand ogalnst the door,
Tkcio was a ciash, and Mr,
Smith had thrust his hand thtoiigli the
glass door. While turning his head again
to see what had happened no quickly pulled
his hand back, and in doing so cut It, beret
lug several nttcrlcs. Ills left thumb- was
almost sliced off tho hand, while a pool of
blood was rushing from a terrible gash tin
'the arm. Mr. hmlth pulled out a white
silk handkerchief, which somo bystuuders
look and tied around his nrm. Ho then
lushed up Wost Twenty-sixth street nud
Into Dr. Chichester's olllcv. Mr. Smith
lost over two quarts of blood. 'I ho phjsl
clau floated tho Injuries and put- tho pay
master under morphine. Mr. Smith told
Dr. Chichester that ho did not cara to go to
his homo for fear of causing- his aged
mother pain, and asked tho iloctor to ktep

HEW STATES' CONSTITUTIONS.
Tim Younger or the Htstriliooil or
States (lilting Ilciuty lor lluslaoss.
Ni:w Yoiik, May I. A special from
Seattle, Washington Territory, to tho World
sajs: Iho convention to construct n consti
tution for the Stnto ot Washington will
meet In Jul) at Oljiuplu, tho Territorial
capital. All hut two counties otlhoTor
iltory nro Republican, and tho districting
will givo tho Republicans Just two-thirds of
the members, Democrats being entitled to
the lemalndcr under the enabling act. Tho
Republican primaries nio now being held.
I.lttlo Interest Is taken In tho approaching
convention. Iho Woman Suffragists and
Prohibitionists aro strong, but will bo
unable to get their hobbles Into tho consti
tution. Iho t hlcf tnp'c of dlscuKlon Is tho
Slalg'lai.ds, und on PugctSoiind, whero the
tide flats In Iho haihors havo enormous
value, the land grabbers nro working to
secure Iho claims they havo staked, and tho
opposition lothem Is on tho ground that
thn Mato should own tho flats.
F.aslcru Washington takes llttlo Interest
In Ibis matter nnd her deciding voto may go
either way. Probably a conservative con
stitution, patterned after that of older
Slntcs, will bo submitted. So anxious aro
all for Statehood that tho desire Is to frame,
a constitution that will meet no optiosltlon.
Consequently no radical. Ideas will bo em
bodied In It. However dull matters aro
now, lively limes arc promised nt tho State
election. Several heavy millionaires aro en
tered for tho Senatorl il race and tho
Northern Pacific Knllrtnd will take n hand.
Tho Immigration ot politicians from tho
Fast has be-cn very hoavv, and there will bo

Ihe attention of Admiral Porter was called
to General Ilutlcr's speech yesterday. Tho
Admiral said: "There wero three ofllccrs
who failed to tako their shins past Hi
fort who wcro censure tl by Furiagiit lu
general orders. One of tho three, a com
mander, undoubtedly did behavo badly,
and ran away. The others w cro not prop
erly censurable, and wcro exonerated by
Farragttt when ho understood tho clicum
stances, I will not givo you tho name of
tbo otlleer who ran away. I have no doubt
General Hutler means thu same man I do.
1 never could account for that naval com
mander's conduct. Once. In another en
gagement, I knew li I in to do a very daring
act in cutting a snip out irom iiiuier me
enemy's guns, but ou two other occasion
ho discredited himself. Ho lost casto with
his brother ofllccrs after his misbehavior at
New Orleans, but In later yeats partly re
gained his standing. I ugreo with General
Duller that tho credit for tho capture- of
New Orleans Is duo to Furragut."
