Special to the Record-Union.
Washington, Jan. 18.—Hon. John W.
Foster, who has represented this Govern
ment as Minister to Mexico, and also to
Spain, is naturally well informed in re
gard to the interests of the United States,
both at home and abroad.
Foster was asked what he thought was
likely to be the practical result of the
reciprocity provision, known as the
He replied that he had very little doubt
that its effect would be very beneficial in
the enlargement of our foreign commerce
on this hemisphere. It offers such great
advantages to the sugar and coffee pro
ducing countries, that they cannot fail to
avail themselves of the privileges of this
largest and best market of the world for
"If the emergency arises, will the Pres
ident reinipose the duty on sugar and
coffee, named in the Aldrich amend
'"There is not the slightest doubt about
it," answered Foster. "The President's
duty is made imperative under the law.
Congress has made a most liberal offer of
reciprocity of trade, and if any ration
concerned does not accept it as to that
nation there is no other alternative than
to impose the duty prescribed by Con
T!iis reciprocity provison factor is re
garded as the most popular and com
11 i-i i liable feature of the new Tariff Act,
and in its practical operation is most
likely to give general satisfaction. It is
free from the constitutional objection
whicli has been urged against reciprocity
by means of treaties. It is simple in its
operation, as it is brought about by re
sponsible legislation. It is binding upon
the nations concerned only so long as
dictated by their mutual interests. It
is a policy which he believed wonld go
for to reconcile the conflict in this coun
try between protection and free trade,
whicli would be favorably received by
our neighbors, and would prove to be
the most beneficial outcome of the Inter
national American Conference.
Foster said that the shipping bill now
pending in the House was plainly neces
sary as a part of this great reciprocity
programme, and with its passage we
would be placed in a most advantageous
position to establish and maintain com
mercial supremacy on this hemisphere.
Without the aid of the proposed Ameri
can shipping bill we can never compete
with tiie subsidized shipping of other
-"•••ions, and whatever reciprocity of trade
ft -|y be established under the pro-visions
of the McKinley tariff will then have to
be conducted in foreign ships. Our ship
ping is now the only great industrial in
terest which is not protected by legisla
tion. The bill referred to is in entire
harmony with the protective system, and
is absolutely necessary to the proper en
forcement of reciprocity of trade, as our
commerce with our neighbors should be
carried on under the American flag.
The South and Most United In Its
Washington, Jan. IS.—Senator Daniel,
of Virginia, said to a California Asso
ciated Press correspondent: "The one
issue on which the South and West will
unito on which there is little, if any,
dilference of opinion, is on free coinage.
Tho South is almost united for free coin
age, and so is the West. Silver has ever
been the money of tho people, and while
tile people demand silver for their cur
rency, we should comply with lhat de
mand. Since the rascally trick of de
monetizing silver in 187VJ the issue of
free coinage has slowly but surely
crowded its way to the front, and if the
free coinage bill does not become a law
during Ihis Congress yon may expect to
see il became one of the leading issues in
the Presidential campaign. In my judg
ment on the issues of silver you would
witness the South and West getting to
gether for the benefit of a common in
terest. The vote in the South on free
coinage shows an almost unanimous
South and West against a solid East. The
vote was significant, and it docs not re
quire a keen vision to see the current of
the political wind.
LOSS TO THE TOOR PEOPLE.
NEW York, Jan. IS.—Ex-Comptroller
of the Currency Trenholm, in discussing
the free coinage bill, says: "There are
nearly a thousand savings banks in tho
United States, and they owe their deposi
, fens over fifteen hundred million dollars,
representing that much in gold value
• saved by the poor people out of their
earnings. Here is debt that should be
held sacred by Congress, yet, under tlie
proposed bill, these institutions can settle
with their depositors in silver, and this
will probably be effected at a loss to de
positors of 20 per cent iv their deposits,
about three hundred million in the aggre
PO NOT FAVOR FREE COINAGE.
Boston, Jan. IS. —The newly-organized
Republican Club of Massachusetts lias
Called a meeting in Faneuil Hall Tuesday
next to protest against Vest's free coin
age bill. Party lines have been ignored,
and invitations to take part in the meet
ing have been sent to every business or
ganization in Boston.
THE SUBSIDY BILL.
Charges Made That Lobbyists Are
Workincr for Its Passage.
Washington, Jan. IS. —Representative
Wheeler of Alabama said to your corre
spondent to-night: "It looks now as if
the subsidy bill will go through, but it
may be that at the hist moment those
who are so active in advocating its meas
ures will have little regard for public
opinion, and in that eveut the Treasury
will not be despoiled. I doubt if anyone
can tell exactly how many millions it
would take to carry the bills into effect.
"The jiapc-rs of the country denounce
the subsidy bills as a mammoth steal, and
charge in so many words that a powerful
lobby is swarming around the corridors
of the Capitol working like beavers in
the interest of tile bills. I hear il said that
tlie days of the Pacific Mail jobbery are
being re-enacted here again in these sub
sidy bi lis.
"You know, an investigation of Pacific
Mail subsidy resulted in the purifying of
legislation, and for a time the lobby kept
very dark. Now, if there is no lobby be
hind these subsidy bills, and no barrel on
tap, as is aliegod, why does not some one
ask for an investigation ? I have heard
some little talk of a resolution of inquiry
that is to be introduced, but I have not
seen a cony of it. I agree with Mills,
and believ<*that an investigation will fol
low the passage of the subsidy bills.". i
The talk of a powerful lobby being at
work here in the interest ot the Pacific
Mail is heard on all sides, yet these lob
byists do not seem to materialize. There
is only one individual here who has oven
been pointed out as a Pacific Mail lobby
ist, and he, as a member of the company,
is, naturally enough, much interested in
the fate of the subsidy bill. This gentle
mania pointed out wherever he goes as
the "Pacific. Mail lobbyist," and he has
been magnified, like Falstaff's men iv
Buckram, by quid mines and tlie busy
bodies, until he has become a powerful
lobby, composed of ex-members of Con
gress and Pacific Coast steamship men.
Tho Special Commissioners Ready to
Depart on Their .Missions.
Washington, Jan. IS.—The army and
navy officers who have been detailed as
special Commissioners to carry an invita
tion from the Government of the United
States to the other American republics
and the West Indian colonies to partici
pate in the Columbian Exposition, and
to use every endeavor to secure a proper
understanding of the alfair in the various
countries, have received their letters of
credence and instructio:-* from the De

Probable Programme* for the Present
Washington, Jan. 18.—The election
bill comes up in the Senate to-morrow
again as unfinished business. The
course of business will depend altogether,
it is felt, upon the attendance. If the ex
pected Republican quorum is present,
the next move will be to consider the
Aldrich closure resolution, for the man
agers of tho bill believe the time is at
hand when the last doubt as to the effi
cacy of the old method of "sitting out"
must have been removed. The efforts to
lay aside the elections bill will doubtless
be renewed, but should they fail the clo
sure promises to be a feature of the pro
ceedings of the Senate during the week.
The proceedings in the House during
tho week will be governed by the prog
ress of the Senate with the elections bill,
thepurpose Ofthe Democrats manifestly
being a delay of business as long as the
measure remains pending in the Senate.
The principal interest is centered in the
proceedings of the House Committee, to
which the free coinage silver bill has
been referred. The fate of the bill de
pends largely upon its action, as tho
committe practically has power to shelve
it, and thus render action by the House
almost, if not quite, impossible. For this
reason thi! proceedings of the committee
will be followed with liveliest interest.
Washington, Jan. 18.—Henry B. Jar

United States Marine Hospital.
Washington, Jan. IS. —The annual re
port of Supervising Surgeon-General
Hamilton of the Marino Hospital service,
shows that during the past year in the
United States Marine Hospital and
branches .00,071 sailors were treated. As
an index to the nativity of the sailors

stated that but (>,'»lo of this number wore
born in the United States. Investigation
in regard to yellow fever, small-pox and
la grippe are treated at length.
The Surgeon-General recommends a

Washington, Jan. 18.—Tho Post to
day asserts emphatically that the Presi
dent will veto the free coinage bill should
it pass the House, no matter if tho elec

that Sneaker Read will make every en
deavor to thwart the silver men in their
attempts to get the bill before the House.

This morning it was discovered that
gas was escaping from some leaking pipe
somewhere into the dining-room, and
Mr. Marvin, the owner of the building,
with three plumbers, spent the entire
forenoon trying to locate the leak.
About 10 o'clock they entered tho dining
room, and found such an accumulation of
gas that they conld not breathe, and it
was suggested that a hole be sawed
throngh the Boor into the dining-room, in
order to oht.'iin fresh air. This was done,
and just as the hole was made one of the
dining-room girls, who was sweeping the
floor, stepped upon a match! and in an
instant an explosion occurred, which not
only wrecked the building, but killed
two girls and maimed and injured a
dozen other employes.
The force of the explosion was so great
that it blew out the flame of ignited gas,
and no fire followed the awful ruin which
the shock caused. The whole city rocked
as if in an earthquake, and all the win
dows on the square were demolished.
Had the explosion occurred ten minutes
later the loss of life would have been
frightful, as nearly a hundred people
were waiting to be called to dinner.

City Attorney of Chattanooga. Warder

Judge Warder came home at 1 o'clock

Judge Warder is one of the best-known

Tho Appeal to tho Supremo Court Not
an Act of Discourtesy.
New York, Jan. 18.—A London spe
cial says : Rumors aro alloat of a some
what forcible remonstrance having been
addressed by Blame to Lord Salisbury .on
account of proceedings being takes to the
Supreme Court. Nothing hocus to be
known about it in oflicial circles. If
such a dispatch has been received,
Lord Salisbury is keeping it to himself
until Tuesday next, when there will be a
Cabinet meeting to arrange the course of
business for Parliament.
"The Government is In a position, I
understand, to dispose quickly of any
charge brought against it of a
desire to steal a march on the
United States in the Behring Sea negotia
tions, or of treating the Secretary of State
with discourtesy. Those who are ac
quainted with the facts are confident that
when the people ou both sides of the At
lantic hear the truth they will see that
the British Ministry could not have
acted otherwise than it has done. It
will be denied altogether that Salisbury
suggested the application to the Supreme
Court. Tho proceedings were taken on
I lie responsibility and initiative of Can
ada, the ministry here concurring, and
did not imagine for a moment that the
United States Court would place an of
fensive construction upon them.
"It is maintained that an appeal to the
highest American court for a settlement
ofthe points of law involved in the inter
national dispute shows the utmost con
dence in that court, and therefore cannot
reasonably be regarded as an act of dis
courtesy toward the President. The
question will no doubt be brought before
Parliament as soon as the papers are laid
on the table."

Washington, Jan. 18.—Captain G. R.
Ferry, whose vessel was captured in
Behriug Sea, and which affair was made
the basis for the suit in the United States
Supreme Court by the British Govern
ment, is in Washington.
Captain Ferry left Victoria, B. C, a
week ago last Monday, in response to a
telegram from the British Minister here
saying that his presence was needed in
Washington. A few hours after his arri
val counsel for the British Government
were making a motion in the Supremo
Court. If the Attorney-General had sug
gested that it was necessary that the (lap
tain of tho vessel should be present, Cap
tain Ferry would have been produced with
dramatic celerity. As he was not called,
the British Consul did not make his pres
ence known. Ho has kept himself se
cluded in the Ebbitt House ever since.
He will not go home until it is certain
that his attendance here is no longer nec
To a Post reporter Captain Ferry dif
fered emphatically from the Treasury
agents' and the State Department's posi
tion in the alleged decrease in the num
ber of seals. He says that instead of de
creasing they are "increasing. He saw
more seals last summer than he had ever
seen before in the Northern Pacific
Ocean and Behring Sea.
He also makes another very interesting
statement. He says that the seals, re
turning to the rookeries, arc, in the case
of the females, laden with young. If
these female seals are allowed to enter
Behring Sea and deliver their young the
perpetuation of race is assured." If, how
ever, the United States forbids the killing
of seals in Behring Sea, the sealing ves
sels would simply take their position at
tho outer entrance to the sea, by the
Aleutian Islands, and kill tho animals,
thus destroying the young and old to
gether. In other words, to kill seals in
the North Pacific Ocean, where there is
no possible question of restriction, means
tho destruction of the species, while the
killing of seals in Behring Sea, after the
period of maternity has passed, means
perpetuation of the species.
Captain Ferry says that tho seals are
found in schools of about thirty, and only
two, or rarely three, can be killed before
the rest escape. At this rate, he says, the
seals can never be exterminated.
SENSATIONAL MURDER CASE.
How a Woman Got Rid of nor Wealthy
Lincoln (Neb.), Jan. 18—There have
been three arrests in the past twenty-four
hours in connection with the murder of
John Sheedy on Monday. McFarland, a
colored barber, was the first suspect,
and he to-day made a confession acknowl
edging the killing and implicating the
wife of the murdered man and her sup
posed lover. All are in jail. McFarland
declares that Mrs. Sheedy agreed to fjay
him $15,000 to make away with her hus
band. Developments of a sensational na
ture are expected. Sheedy was an old
resident, and quite wealthy.
Mrs. Sheedy left her former husband, a
poor carpenter, to marry Sheedy. He
was old enough to be her father. Pre*-
emly slie became infatuated with one
Harry Walstrom, and McFarland asserts
that she employed him to rid her of her
husband. He also says that Mrs. Shecdv
poisoned her husband after he struck
him down with a loaded cane, so as to
make sure of his death. Sheedy was a
brother of Dennis Sheedy, President of
the Colorado National Dunk of Denver,
and a cousin of Pat Sheedy, the noted
Chicago sporting man.

RING TALK. '
Sullivan "Wants siavin to Stand Before
Him Six Rounds.
Chicago, Jan. 18.—John L. Sullivan
says that Wakely and Lynch, who ar
rived from Now Orleans yesterday, laid
before him a proposal to light Siavin.
Tho proposal, he understands, comes
from Slavin's friends in New Orleans.
Sullivan's reply is that he willgive Siavin
52,;300, or *?5,000 if ho prefers it, if ho will
show that he can stand before him (Sulli
van) six rounds, with five-ounce gloves.
Sullivan will meet him at any place as
soon as the present engagement will per
mit. Ho will tight no more bare fist
fights, a.s he doesn't wish "to run up
against the law again."
Sullivan says Corbett, Kilrain and
Siavin are all calling themselves cham
pion. What ho wants them to do is to
settle the matter among themselves, and
then lie will fight tho winner.
James J. Corbett of San Francisco met
Sullivan for the first time to-day, and ex
pressed great admiration for him. When
asked if he would fight him Corbett said,
why should ho, adding that there aro a
number of men to whip before he thinks
of the world's championshio honors.
"If Siavin wants to light," said Corbett,
"why don't he light me? lam convinced
that ho is a blowhard, who is talking
principally because he knows Sullivan's
hands are at present tied. If I am suc
cessful in my coming meeting with Peter
Jackson, I snail go to England and make
him light, or expose him as a duller."
Sullivan, when asked what about Jack
son, said: "Oh, I don't consider him.
He is out of it, as far as I am concerned."

The question was whore to obtain suffi
cient skin to cover the ono hundred and
forty-four square inches of surface. Tho
matter was broached in the Commandery,
and to a man the Knights offered to sub
mit themselves to the necessary opera
tion. This was performed to-day at the
Emergency Hospital. Nearly one hun
dred Knights had each a small strip of
skin removed from the arm or leg to lie
transplanted to Dickerson's hip. No
representatives of the press were allowed
to bo present, but it has been learned that
nearly all of the Knights went through
tho operation unflinchingly. Two fainted,
but were quickly resuscitated. Several
others anxiously inquired for cold water
at different stages of the operation. Only
about two minutes were consumed with
each man, iri which time the skin was re
moved, his wound dressed and the piece
placed on Dickerson.
While the surgeons will make no posi
tive statement as to the result of the
operation, it is evidently their opinion
that it will be entirely successful.
The Knights who offered themselves
up to tho surgeons' knives will experi
ence but little inconvenience from the
' slight wounds inflcted upon them.

7 to 4.
San Francisco, Jan. 18.—Another of
the series of games ofthe Players' Winter
League, an organization composed mostly
of local and Eastern ball-players now in
this city, was played this afternoon at
Central Park. The clubs were known as
the San Franeiscos and Oaklands. The
teams were about evenly matched, and
played a rather closely contested game.
There was no life in the game though, for
the players acted in a perfunctory way,
and neither club seemed to care whether
it won or not. The Oaklands proved
more fortunate than Que San Franeiscos,
for they came out victorious, defeating
their opponents by a score of 7 to 4?

Tlio 'Occidental Foundry Withdraws
From tho Association.
San Francisco, Jan. 18.—The members
of the Manufacturers' and Machinists'
Association were very reticent yesterday
when questioned in reference to the with
drawal of Steiger&Kerrof the Occidental
Foundry from that organization. The
proprietors of the foundries say they are
still determined to fight the striking
molders and core-makers to the bitter
end. cost what it may, and that the break
in their ranks caused by the withdrawal
of one foundry will have very little bear
ing on the matter.
The strikers, however, are more con
fident than ever that the long-standing
controversy will soon terminate in a
complete victory for them. It was
learned last night that five non-union
moldcVs were removed from the Occi
dental Foundry, and will be shipped
back East to-day. This will leave that
shop without any molders and core
makers, and when it opens up this week
—probably on Tuesday—it will be with a
complete crew of union men.
President Valentine of the Molders'
Union said last night that the Occidental
would hereafter be conducted exclusively
under union rules, so far as the molders
and core-makers are concerned.
TIIE ZEALANDIA WON.
Ocean Steamship Race Between Syd
ney and San Francisco.
San Francisco, Jan. 18.—The ocean
race between tho Oceanic Steamship
Company's steamer, Zealandia, and the
Union Steamship Company's steamer,
Monowai, from Sydney to San Francisco,
resulted in a victory for the Zealandia by
twenty-four hours. The Zealandia started
one hour later than the Monowai, but
soon passed her. The Monowai arrived
this morning, twenty-five days from
Sydney, bringing seventy-two cabin and
thirty-five steerage passengers. Her
captain reports considerable delay from
defective air-pumps. She carries the
Australian and New Zealand mails for
this country and Europe, and as the
steamers represent opposition lines, con
siderable interest was attached to the
Escaped Prisoners Captured.
Tacoma, Jan. 18.—Three prisoners who
escaped from the United States Peniten
tiary, on McNeill's Island, were captured
this morning. Although they escaped on
Friday night, they had not succeeded., in
getting away from the island.

Protest Against Morrow's Bill to Lease
oi" i'opoff Island.
Washington, Jan. 18. — Tho Mc-
Collum Fishing and Trading Company,
of San Francisco, sends to Congressman
Clunie an emphatic protest against Mor
row's bill, introduced by request, to lease
the Popolf islands, one of the Alaskan
groups, to the firm of Lynde &, Hough, of
They say that since the acquiring of cer
tain improvements and possessory rights
from the natives for a valuable considera
tion, they have established a eodfishing
station and erected several new buildings.
Their business has assumed extensive
proportions, and a large capital is in
vested. Their actual expenditures for
permanent improvements aud in the
prosecution of the regular business at
Pirate Cove during the past fifteen years
have exceeded $150,000, and, under the
circumstances, they consider it a piece of
presumption and unmitigated assurance
on the part of Lyndo tfc Hough to ask for
a lease of this island. They say that the
whole scheme of leasing the island will
not hear investigation.
About eight miles distant from Pirate
Cove, on Popoff Island, Lynde it Hough
in 1868 established a trading station at
Sand Point, which has several years been
the rendezvous of poaching Victoria seal
ing schooners before and after entering
Behring Sea, and it is currently reported
that an extensive smuggling business is
carried on in landing intoxicating liquors,
and in the transhipment of sealskins from
their vessels to Victoria and San Fran
AT PINE RIDGE.
TIIE IIOSTILES CONTINUE TO
TURN OVER THEIR ARMS.
Secretary Nohie Says the Indians Re
ceiving Government Bounty
Special to the Record-Union.
Pine Ridge Agency, Jan. 18.—More
guns were turned in to Agent Pierce
to-day by the hostiles. They told him
that a systematic search is beinjf made in
the tepees, and that all weapons found
would be turned over.
The custodian said to-day that five hun
dred guns had been surrendered, and at
headquarters it is claimed that the arms
turned over exceed in number those re
ceived in any other campaign.
Last night several shots were fired in
the hostile camp, but nobody was hurt.
To-day the Indians were gloomy and sul
len. The frieudlies informed your corre
spondent that a number of troublesome
young men still have bad hearts and
cannot be converted.
General Miles is meeting with some
opposition in liis plan of segregating the
several Indian tribes.
Notwithstanding tho Cheyennes had

nothing important transpired. General
Miles to-night issued a congratulatory
address to the soldiers, with a review of
General Miles will probably lcavo for
the East early next week, and General
Brooke has resumed command of the
forces in the field.
This afternoon the wife of Few Tails
arrived here, badly wounded, having
been a victim of white men's malice.
Four weeks ago she, with her husband
and several other Indians, left the agency
with a pass from General Brooke, to hunt
for eagle feathers. When near Bear Butte
they were set upon by some white men.
Few Tails was killed and his wife badly
wounded. Others of the party scattered
and have not been heard from since. For
nino days past the woman has been walk
ing to the agency, covering the distance
of 150 miles. She reached the camp of
the Sixth Cavalry this morning, aud was
brought to the hospital.
THE INDIANS MUST WORK.
Washington, Jan. 18.—The Post says
that Secretary Noble, talking of the policy
to be pursued with the Indians hereafter,
said that first of all they should be de
prived of their firearms. An intellect
that could master the intricacies of a
Winchester rifle was quite capable of ap
preciating the noble simplicity of the
plow, and he proposed to give the hostile
Sioux an opportunity as well as tlie in
centive, to earn iheir own living. Out of
the 24-1,000 Indians in the United States
over two-thirds are earning their own
The Secretary is decidedly in favor of
making these Indians who depend on

They should bo treated with perfect fair

Special to the Recobd-Union.
Trai.ee, Jan. 18.—Parnell addressed a
large meeting here this afternoon, being
received with mingled cheers and groans.
He said he had done his part toward the
solution ofthe Irish problem when he
had conferences with O'Brien, and tho
subsequent delay in arriving at a settle
ment was entirely the fault of others. He
declared that there was no truth in tho re
port that he would retire unconditionally
if O'Brien was satisfied.
He said that if Gladstono had the cour
age to make a big, instead of a little,
home rule bill, ho (Parnell) would look
forward with confidence to his own retire

no longer need his leadership.

he visits Queen Victoria this year, will
Lay before her his scheme for the disarma
ment of Europe, and if she is able to
bring about the arrangement with the
Duke of Cumberland, tho Emperor's
plan will be promulgated to the world at
The theory of disarmament can now
be proposed if Victoria is willing to
guarantee that the Duke of Cumberland
shall unreservedly renounce all preten

sideration ofthe restitution of the enory

Prussian Treasury as King of Hanover.
London, Jan. 18.—The Times announces

the papyrus rolls acquired recently in
Egypt tho text of Aristotle's treaties on
