Washington', Oct. 23. Owing to cer
tain clerical errors in the tobacco schedule
of the new tariff bill, several persons
claim that the whole law is invalidated,
and some of the importers have Riven
notice that they will contest its enforce
ment. No alarm is felt here among the
friends of the McKinley bill as to the
legality of its enforcement. The pre
cedents of years, an old and experienced
employe of the house, suid today, leaves
no doubt that an error, whether of omis
sion or commission, in the enrollment of a
bill passed by congress does not vitiate
any part of the measure, except that part
to w inch the error relates. Errors of some
kind occur, he said, at every session of con
gress in ac least one or more important
bi Is, and to hold that the omission or in
sertion of any paragoaph, word or punctu
ation mark, invalidates, not only the part
of the bill to which tho error is relevant.

chaos in tho affairs of tho government,
and compel congress to remain constantly
in session to correct, immediately, on dis
covery, errors in bills signed by tho presi
dent, in order that, the operations of the
government might be carried on.
During the very last session of congress
an error was made in the eurollmentof the

was appropriated. A week or more alter
the bill became a law, the error was dis
covered, and congress promptly parsed a
joint resolution to correct it. "The fact,"
i.e continued, "that in this joint resolution,
as in numerou others passed for the cor
rection of bimilar errors, comriess enacted
no provision to give legal eliect to tho re

GROVER IS NOT DEAD.
Washington, Oct. 23. A rumor was
current here this morning that ex-President
Cleveland had died suddenly some
said in New York, others in Washington.
Upon investigation, it appeared that there
was no basis for the story, and that the ex
president had arrived in Washington, and
was quartered at the Arlington hotel, and
was looking as well as usual. When the
story was called to his attention, he said:

Washington, Oct. 23. In reference to
the alleged activity of the political asso
ciations, especially in the matter of rais
ing campaign funds, among the govern
ment employes in Washington, Civil Serv
ice Commissioner Roosevelt to day said
that the commission would pursue the
same course it did last year.
"In former years," he continued, "these
assessments were levied openl-; now they
are levied in secret and by stealth, if at all.
There is not the slightest necessity for any
clerk to pay anything now unless he or she
wishes to. We are sure that no cabinet
officer would permit a man to be dismissed
for refusing to contribute to a campaign
fund. It would be a direct breach
of law to permit anyone to be mo
lested for such a cause. Tim

LONDON, Oct. 23. The Diaries and Let
ters of Major Bartelot, the commander of
Stanley's rear guard, are published here
today. They contain serious charges
against the African explorer. The book
was edited by Walter Bartelot, who in the
preface says: "It is not likely that this
book would have been written, or one
word of its contents ever been p'ublished,
had justice been even nartiallv dnnp. nr n

expedition to the officer who was left at
Yambuya with his implements, stores and

tude, misrepresentation, and desertion,
are then brought against Stanley. Besides
other less importaut accusations, the issue
presented is whether the misfortunes of
the rear column were due to the indecision
of Major Bartelot, or whether Stanley
himselt was primarily responsible.
In his book, Mr. Stanley finds fault be
cause the rear column did not follow the
advance column as directed. Mr. Barte

WAsniNOlON, Oct. 22. Secretary Rusk
says that ho is receiving encouraging re-
iiorts of progress from Mr George banders,
lis special agent in Great Britain, relative
to the removal of the British restrictions
upon tho importations of American
live stock. In a recent report to the
(secretary Mr. Sunders incloses ex
tracts from the British journals,
which give, among other things,
the details of the embargo recently placed
upon a shipment of Canadian cattle to
Scotland Iho secretary said this Erglish
account of the incident confirms what he
lias alwavs contended namely, the diffi
culty of depending absolutely upon a sin
gle diagnosis in order to determine whether
hj mptoms of diseaso indicate the conta
gious or nou-coutmzious pleuro-pneu-monia
It wy on this ground that the
secretary co' eluded to adopt the present
plau of co-ir ipection by representatives of
his own dej .irtniont with the Briish in
upcctors. Tho sec etary also said that ho thought
tho actio of the British authorities in tho
Dundee case rsther justified tho inference
that t'.o restrictions imposed and main
tained on American cattle by the British
govor anient are duo less to any spirit of
unfr.endlineas which might lead to dis
criminations against the United States
than to a positive fear lest, through any
lack of their official vigilance, dnnger to
British cattle might ensue, and this nat
ural 1 leads him to the conclusion that
comparatively little difficulty will be
experienced in securing tho re
moval ot any restrictions dis
criminating between American and
Canadian cattle just so soon as the British
authorities can be thoroughly convinced of
tnc immunity winch American cattle now
enjoy from contagious pleuropneumonia
and of tho ample powers vested in tho sec
retary of agriculture to control and eradi

WALT AND BOB.
Philadelphia, Oct. 23. Col. Robert G.
Ingersoll lectured tonight at Horticultural
hall to an immense audience on "Liberty
and Literature," the proceeds for the bene
fit of Walt Whitman. Col. Ingersoll in
troduced his lecture by saying:
"At the time, a vouug man he to
whom this testimonial is given, he upon
whose head have fallen the snows of more
than seventy winters gave to the world a
book, "Leaves ot Grass." This book was,
and is, the true transcript of a soul. No
drapery of hypocrisy, no pretense, no fear.
All customs were forgotten or disregarded,
all rules broken nothing mechanical, no
imitation, spontaneous, running and
winding ho a river, multitudinous in its
thoughts as the waves of the sea nothing
mathematical or measured.
"His book was received by many with
disdain, with horror with indignation
and protest hv tho few as a marvel us,
almost miraculous, message to the world
full of thought, philosophy, poetry and
iiiusu. online iui- jrni' jo. nil? .wlicriran
pi-ople have developed; they are somewhat
acquainted with the literature of tho
world. I pronose to examine this book
and to state in a general way what Walt
Whitman has done, what he has accomj
plished and tho place ho has wou in the
world of thought."
Pol. Ingersoll then entered into his
theme with spirit and eulogized Mr. Whit
man, recounting his many acts of kind
ness, to the young especially, speaking of
him as a philosopher, and passim: on the
lecturer recited and commented" on the
poem, "Word Out of the Sea," and tho
lines on the death of Lincoln, "When
Lilacs Last in tho Doorynrd Bloomed,"
"The poem," he said, "will last as long as
iho memory of Lincoln."
"In this one book, in these wonderous
'Leaves of Grass,' you find hints and sug
gestions, touches and fragments of all
there is of life that lies between the babe,
whose rounded cheeks dimple beneath Ins
mother's laughing, loving eyes, and the
old man, snow-crowned, who, with smile,
extends bis hand to death."
The venerable poet, to whom the occa
sion was a testimonial, sat in his wheel
chair on the stage, and at the conclusion
of Col. Iugersoll's oration, rolled himself
forward, and in a feeble voice tendered his
thanks to the audience aud to Col. Inger
soll, finishing his remarks by exclaiming:
"Hail and farewell, hail and farewell."
The scene was very impressive.
Nashville, Tenn., Oct 23. At this
morning's meeting of the American
Humane association, with Mr. Edwin
Lee Brown presiding, the subject of cattle
transportation was taken up. During the
past year a special agent had been appoint
ed, through the efforts of Miss Caroline E.
White of Philadelphia, to travel over the
different roads and see that animals were
properly treated and watered while in
transit. The chairman stated that there
were about 8,000 improved cattle cars in
use west of Chicago, while there were none
of these improved crs used east of that
city. Au effort will be made to secure a
more general introduction of these desir
able cars. A committee composed of rep
resentatives from each state was appointed
to nominate officers for the corainjr year.
Mr. W. H. Hobbs, of Indianapohs, con
tributed a paper on the work of humane
socities, while Mr. R. F. Reed, of Natchez,
Miss., gave an account of the humane
work in the south.
At the afternoon session of the associa
tion, the following gentlemen were elected
to fiil the principal offices: President, Mr.

Mr. J. J. Kelso, Toronto, Canada: secre
tary, Mr. Erastus Branham, of Cincinnati
It was decided that the next annual meet

THE GEORGIA RACE RIOT.
Atlanta, Ga., Oct. 23. Only meacre

THE l-'BEHAL PHOGRAM.
London, Oct. L3. -Mr. Gladstone spoke
at West Calder today. He referred to tho
result of the Eccles election as a forecast
of the triumph of the Liberals in the com
ing general election, which, if the present
ratio of gains coutinue, would give them a
majority of nine y. Referring'to the Irish
question, he objected to the name "Sepa
ratists," as applied to the home rulers.
The appellation, he said, was untrue and
unfair. There was now no question anions
tho Liberals about removing the
Irish representation from Westmiuster:
nor did they propose to repeal
the act of union. But they did propose to
delegate to Ireland the control of local
affairs. He advocated the principle- of one
man, one vote, and snorter parliaments.
Commenting upon the enormous power
workiugmen now possessed. lie said it
would prove beneficial, as the judgment of
great questions by the masses was more
enlightened than that by the educated
classes. The bulk of what workingmen
had gained in tho contest with capital had
been through the judicious use of combi
nation. Workingmen ought not to con
tract the habit of appealing to parliament
to help them out of difficulty by a special
act. Freedom of action, reliance upon
themselves, and unity of policy, would
lift them to a higher position as individ

A STARTLING STORY.
The Indians of the Territory Said to be
Preparing for War.
Kansas Citt, Mo., Oct. 23. Thomas
Knight, geological engineer of the Rock
Island railroad, has been for some months
past in the Indian territory, making a geo
logical survey of the part of that country
which is to be traversed by the Kock
Island extension. He returned today, and
in an interview said that an alarming feel
ing of discontent exists among the Indians
of the territory.
'There is undoubtedly a very uneasy
feeling nmong the Indians," he said,
"with respect to the occupation of their
lands by the white settlers. This has al
ways been more or less the case, but ot
lato their disconteut is assuming a more
definite and dangerous shape. By some
distortion of the Christian doctrine, the
tribes appear possessed with tho idea that
an Indian Christ is shortly to come among
them, and by his inspired leadership lead
them in an irresistible crusade against tho
