WASHINGTON, TUESDAY EVENING, MAY 21, 1889.
PIUUE TWO OK NTS
MESSRS. HINE AND DOUGLASS
SWORN INTO OFFICE.
It Tnlte.i Just Ton Seconds to KlTcct n
Clinngo In tho Administration of
District Affair Tho Irlrt Hoard
This mi a any of greeting and parting
nt the District buildings. Tho men who
for over thrco years havo hold Iho ofllco
pave way to tho now appoluloos. It tool:
just ten seconds by tho hip; round clock In
tho board-room to effect tho change, and
thus almost hi tho twinkling of an eye tho
new administration was launched. Dr.
Tlndnll gavo tho oath of ofllcc, and stand
ing at tho end of tho long, tabic, around
which tho board meet, Messrs. llliiantid
Douglass held tho book. First tho former
hissed Its nearest rim und then his collcaguo
did tho same. Then thoy grasped each
other by Iho hand and every ono In the
room congratulated them. Tho ceremony
was exceedingly simple, nnd upon Its con
clusion Mr. v ebb requested every one, ex
cent tho Commissioners, to leavo tho room.
nnd n moment later tho thrco rulers of thol
District wcro olono.
Among those In tho room who witnessed
Iho taking of tho oath was Superintendent
of Schools Powell, Attornoy for tho District
lilddlc, Intendant Stoutcnburgh, Mr. Mc
Parian, a brother-in-law of Commissioner
Douglass; Assistant District Attorney
, Davis, Health Officer Townshcnd, Coroner
Patterson, tho retiring Commissioners nnd
half a dozen reporters. Tho board Immedi
ately went Into Its first oxcctillvc BCSSlOU,
which was rather Informal. A number of
papers requiring early attention werogono
over, and tbo Commissioner Informed
tlicinfc,lvcs upon their salient points. Then
the meeting adjourned.
It was nearly noon to-day before cither
Messrs. Illno or Douglass nnlvcd at tho
District buildings. About ten minutes of
tho hour 'Mr. Douglass climbed tho Iron
bouud stairway and camo Into tho ofllco ho
Is to occupy. IIo qulto look everyono by
surprise, and Just missed seeing a rather
alTcctlng scene. Wort! early wont romijj
tho building that tho retiring Commis
sioners would bo glad to meet .all of tho
District employes and toll them good-bye,
and so It was that from 10:30 until nearly
12 o'clock thcro was a constant stream o'f
fcoplc from all over tho building making
heir way to tho rooms. It was an informal
affair, this leave-taking, and tliero wcro not
many smiles, except on tho faco of .Mr.
Wkcatloy, who was as cheerful ns over and
had a pleasant word for everyone, from tho
head of the most Impoitant department to
. tho man who cleaned tho cuspidors.
They all wished him long life and a happy
one, and then passed on Into Mr. Webb's
room and took his hand in parting. Mr.
Webb 6ecuied much nffectcd by tho many
kind expressions of his old subordinate
nnd kept saying over nnd over again
"Well, gentlemen, wo havo to part, but I
Is only officially, wo will always bo good
friends." All day business was practi
cally suspended In tho ofllccs and though
Ihc clerks bent over their books not much
work was done. Jinny and various were
(ho comments passed upon tho new men,
nnd without any particular reason all ot
them enmo to tho conclusion that they
would make remarkably good ulllclals.
at Tin: rum noAitii meeting
held to-day by tho new Commissioners,
Mr. Douglass was elected president, and It
was decided hereafter to hold board meet
ings at 2 o'clock each day. Immediately
upon coming out of tho room they wcro
couduclcd to their desks by tho old" Com
missioners. Mr. Douglass will occupy tho
toom so long used by Mr. Webb, mid for
the present will attend to tho routino work
formerly dono by him as president ot tho
board. Mr. Illno now sits at Mr. Wheat
lcy's old desk. This arrangement Is of a
temporary character only, nnd will con
tlnuo until tho organization of tho new
administration has been completed, which
it is hoped will bo finished beforo tho cud
of tho week.
This afternoon tho Commissioners held n
reception In their rooms, and met all ot tho
employes of tho District (lovcrnment. The
clerks from each department went lu with
their chiefs and shook hands with tho new
olUclals. A number of prominent peoplo
called, among them Senator Hlggfiis of
Delaware. IIo said ho had called simply to
iay his respects to Mr. Douglas", whom ho
jail known whllo Assistant Attorney-Gen
eral and Mr. Douglass was Commissioner
or internal iioveuuc. iho two gentlemen
had n pleasant talk.
Tho' last olllclal act of tho old board was
tho grouting of a pardon to Sarah Johnson,
who Is confined In tho workhouso, and the
first act of tho new Commissioners was tha
signing of a requisition on tho collector for
55,000, to ho used In street Impiovcmcnts.

Horsey Sober I'ut on Trial for Ills 1.1 To
Dorsc'y Subcr, a neatly-dressed, yellow
complcxloucd man, was placed on trial In
the Criminal Court to-dny on tho chargo ot
murder. Tho (lovcrnment was represented
by A. A. I.lpscomb, nnd Campbell Carrlng
ton appeared for Iho prisoner. Tho trouble
Which resulted lu Iho death of James Pay-no
on tho night of December 27, 13S3, occurred
at n homo on E street, between Seven

Important point of tho defenso turns on
this circumstance, ns Dr. Morris testified
that It n physician had taken tliu enso at

that l'ayno was tho aergrcssor and had

llrodlc, with n small parly of men, went
out on tho Passaic, nnd tho bridge Jumper,
ntllrcd lu a red flannel shirt aud drnwers of
a similar color, advanced out toward tho
ledge. He stepped boldly out upon n pro
jecting rock higher than any of Its mates,
and which hungovcr the yawning chasm.
Tho spoil-bound oil-lookers saw him mako
tho sign of tho cross on his red flannel shirt,
watched his kneo Joints bend outward and
his body sway forward. Then they caught n,
fleeting gllmpso of a flash of red topped with
black ns It shot downward Into what was ap
parently a w hiding sheet of foam. Thcro su
pervened a sullen pltingo as tho waters
opened and received tho fulling body, which
could be heard abovo tho roar of tho cata

peered eagerly down Into tho seething mael
strom, but Ilrodlc's body was lost to sight
In the cloud ot spray lu the basin beforo ho
over touched tho water.
An onlooker was holding n stop-watch In
his hand, glancing eagerly from It to tho
water below, and ho salil mechanically: "I
am pretty suro I saw hhn strlko tho water.
Only thirty seconds havo passed. Ho may
bo all right yet."
Silence ensued again, and all eyes wcro
fastened on tho water. Thirty seconds
moro elapsed, and then a honrso shout camo
from tho man with the watch: "Thcro ho Is,
there he Is I Sec hlm, seo him; but I am
afraid ho Is dead 1"
Thoy all saw Hrodlo then. Ho was lying
nn his back In the water lu n bent attitude.
Ills ayes woro closed nud his faco was as

to print, however, the current rumor that
tbo fever and attack of nervous prostration
which necessitated tho bringing home of
Ills Roynl Highness by special steamer was
In reality on attack of what among common
people Mould bo designated as tho "Jim
Jams." The details, loo, ot lho prince's arrival at

Jetty when the Alexandria steamed Into
Portsmouth harbor at 10 o'clock at night,
she was not allowed to seo her sick husband.

he was nblo to walk to tho train audio

Loniion, Mnytil.-Mr. William O'ilrleii
testified to-day before lho Piirnell Coinuiln
slon. The fact that his testimony was ox
peeled to-day dlow largo crowds to tint
court-loom, and tho witness was listened to
with great ntlcntlou. Owing to Mr.
O'llricii's weak condition, the result of hli
long Imprisonment, ho was allowed to re
main seated, lu a low, weak voice, which
It was difficult to hear beyond the counsels'
table, tho witness guvo a detailed account
of ngrarlan outrages perpetrated In County
Tlppciary prior to the formation of the Na
tional League In that district. The league,
said lho witness, after It was established,
prevented a wholesale famine and n fearful
war In lho west of Ireland In 1870, Tho
witness declared that 110 murders had been
committed In Tlppcrary since lho forma
tion of lho Icaguo tho e.
Mr. O'llrlcn described the wretched con
dlllon of tho people lu Tlppernry nud other
counties prior lo the formation ot tho
National League. Tho poor tenants wero
lu debt up lo their necks, and bad abso
lutely ho red 1 ess against oppressive ami
biulal Jaudlords. Tho witness said tho
troubles that camo 011 alter 1870 aroso
from tbn universal movement made hy
lho ldiidtoids tu take advantage 11C
tho "two-years'" clauso allowed by lho
net of 170 to get rid of small tenants, ami
thus save paying them tho compensation
due them, iho witness described tho con
dition of County Mnyn nt tho tlmo that
Michael Davltt foimcd a branch of tho
leuguo thcic as appalling. "Wholesale)
famine aud bankruptcy seemed Inevitable,"
said he. "Farmers sold everything at :i
dead loss, nud landlords did not lift a hand
lo help them, but, 011 the contrary, denlod
that any (listless existed."

ber of killed are conflicting, but It It cer
tain that quite 0 largo number wcro slain.
Most of tho bodies wero carried away by
friends of lho fallen, but three or four wcro

of the stolen horses, nud are now being
