NOT YET ENDED.
More Trouble May Result Over
the New Orleans Tragedy.
MAYOR SHAKESPEARE RECEIVES A
It States That the Chief Assassins of
Hennessy IJave Not Yet Been
Cuuj_-.it, and That tho Mayor, Law
yer Parkinson and WicklllTo Aro
Doomed to De*ath—An Investigation
Shows Tliat all of Those Killed
Were Registered Voters.
Special to the Record-L'n-ios.
Nkw Orleans, March 17.—Judge
Man to-day charged the Grand Jury in
regard to Saturday's killing. He recited
thu facts in the matter, and concluded:
"It is not my purpose now to tio moro
than uive this matter in charge to you,
and I do so with every confidence that
there will be no hasty or ill-considered
action on your part, and that the results
of your investigation will be in accord
with your appreciation of the facts as
tbey may come to your knowledge."
The Grand Jury examined a number of
witnesses this afternoon.
Mayor Shakespeare yesterday received
a letter, purporting to come from a com
iiiitte*e of three thousaiiii Italians, notify
ing him that Parkerson and Wiekliti'e and
himself must elio. Tho letter said the
Chief assassins have not been caught.
The police think these letters aro a hoax.
Father Manorotta has written a letter
retracting tho charge that Joseph Pro
venzano belonged to the Mafia.
A clerk in the office of the Registrar of
Voters said this afternoon that he had
examined tho registration books for the
purpose of ascertaining the allegiance of
the men executed by tho people on Satur
day, and that he lound that every one of
the men was a registered voter of the city
of New < irleans. This is of course debars
Italy from taking any .official action.
'1 "lie flight of Foreman Seligman of the
jury is looked upon with suspicion by
the public, and it is put down as proof
of guilt. It has been ascertained that the
whole jury was not bought, but that the*
majority of members were recipients of
money from the nine defendants. Mac
l.esv. one of the jurors, and the only one
who has called for an investigation, says
that five of the jury acted suspiciously
and six of the twelve among the number
stood out for the conviction of Macheca,
Scall'etli and Monastero, and, finding that
the others wonld not agree with them, a
mistrial was agreed upon as to those
NO SYMPATHY SHOWN TIIE KILLED.
Washington, March 17.—One of the
most prominent Italian residents in
Washington, Joseph Catto, in a conversa
tion, said: "If these men were guilty of
the murder of Chief of Police Hennessy
tney cot no more than they deserved, es
peeiallyif the jury had been cowed by
threats so tho members were afraid to
briiiK in a verdict against them. This
country is for Americans, and there is
no loom for people of the sort that the
murderers of Hennessy would seem to
bave been. It ia a mistake to think that
all Italians are alike. Wo are all under
one flag, but there are black sheep under
that )Ui_x as well as any other."
The better class of "Italians in this city
have taken no steps to show any sympa
thy for the men who were killed in New
< irleans, nor has any money been dis
tributed to be sent South.
j.x-secretary havaro's opinion.
Wilmin.-ton (Del.), March 17.—Ex-
Secretary Bayard says he sees no basis
on which the Italian Government could
claim indemnity for the men killed at
New Orleans. There was no discrimina
tion against Italian citizens and American
citizens. The ease was not parallel to the
Wyoming massacre of Chinamen, in
which indemnity was allowed.
SIMILAR TO THE CHINESE QUESTION.
Nkw York, March 17. — The Post's
Washington special has a long interview
with a former resident of Kew Orleans,
now residing at Washington. He says:
"Tbe Italian question down there isquite
as serious as the Chinese question on the
Pacific Coast, or the Hungarian question
in the Pennsylvania mining districts.
The Sicilians, not governed by any de
cent code of law or morals, are terrorized
by tlu* Mafia. The uprising Satnrday
was not a question of race, caste or color,
but a wai- of the law-abiding element
against*the cutthroats of the slums. The
Italians have monopolized the fruit, fish,
and one or two other trades, and any
rival is warned that h,is life is in danger.
It is impossible to gain anything by pros
ecuting tbe ringleaders. The jury is in
timidated in every ease, lt is more prob
able that the jury in the recent case was
terrorized than bribed. Many of the
Italians are engaged in smuggling, petty
piracy and robberies. I don't defend
Saturday's outbreak, but there are times
when we cannot wholly condemn. The
members of Saturday's mob are ordi
narily law-abiding citizens, but they were
exasperated beyond endurance."
MI.KTINi; OF ITALIANS IN BOSTON.
Boston, March 17.—A meeting, under
the auspices of the Italian colony, was
hel<l in Fanouil Hall to-night to protest
against the recent killing of the Italian
prisoners in New Orleans. Nearly 3,(*00
pe>ople attended. Several speeerhes wero
made and resolutions of protest adopted.
NO CAUSE POB LAWENTATIONS.
London, March 17.—The -St. James Ga
eette to-day says: It is curious to find the
people of Italy lamenting the elcath of the
Mafia conspirators at New Orleans. They
wen* wretches who had been driven out
of their own country as pests of society.
The grief of Marquis Di Rudini for tlie
men who wore killed would not belong
or very profound if tho Mafias had not
emigrated. They would have received
an equally short shift from the Sicilian
M FETING AT SAN FRANCISCO.
Bas lr.vNiisco. March 17.—At a meet
ing of Italian citizens here to-night, the
speakers denounced the New Orleans
tragedy as a bloody crime and a barbar
ous butchery. Resolutions calling on the
Government at Washington for immedi
ate reparation were* adopter! and cableel
to the Premier and Minister of Foreign
Affairs of Italy, anel also telegraphed to
Secretary Blame. A telegram of sympa
thy was sent to the Italians at New
Slosson Issues an Ultimatum to Ives
New York. March 17.—Slosson, in
answer to Schaefer's announcement that
he would play in New York City, if al
lowed _880 expenses, anel that he "had ele
positod ?100 for a match with Ives against
slosson. says: "I deposited my money
March l_!th unconditionally, accepting
Schaefer's proposition, consequently that
part of the business has been settled.
This match was to be played between
April 20th and May '2d. So far as Ives is
concerneel I want to say I will not play
forrjlOO a side; but if Schaefer or any .
other friend of Ives deposits £_0 to make
it worth while. I will play Ives SOO points
up for #500 a side* ten or fifteen days after
the match with Schaefer for the world's
championship. It is to be distinctly
understood, however, that as the an
nouncement appears to be made for
Schaefer and Ives jointly, my acceptance
is to be given in both games. I will play
both of them, or hot play at aU. I won't
play Ives instead of Schaefer."
Tliey Cannot be Withdrawn for Ex
New York, March 17.—This afternoon
Superintendent Mason, of the Assay
Office, received notice from the Director
ofthe Mint that $1,000,000 in gold bars, or
dered by two firms, would not be allowed
to be taken for export. This is the first
time in eight years that the Government
has refused to allow gold bars to be taken
Three years ago tho Assay Office had
800,000,000 in gold and silver bars behind
, its counters, but the steady drain for the
last two years had reduced the stock to
818,000,000, and a prospect of further de
pletion was plainly apparent. If firms
elesire to ship gold, they will have to
draw gold coin from the sub-Treasury.
APPROVED BY THE PRESIDENT.
Washington, March 17.—Acting Sec
retary of the Treasury Xettleton, refer
ring to tho refusal to allow gold bars to be
exported, to-day said the action was taken
with the full approval of tho President,
under authority of the recent Act of Con
gress giving the Secretary of the Treasury
eliscretionary power to refuse such ex
changes when deemed necessary for the
interests ofthe Government. On the last
exchange a charge of four cents per hun
dred was imposed, but as this rate does
not seem to have deterred the shipment
of Government gold, the Treasury De
partment decided to discontinue tiio ex
change altogether for the present.
Boyd's Attorney Files Briefs ln tho Quo
Omaha, March 17.—Two briefs were
filed to-day by the attorney of Governor
Boyd in the quo warranto e-ase.
Tho first cites sections of the National
and State Constitutions, in which provi
sions aro made for admitting Nebraska
into the Union on an equal foot
ing with the original States. It
asserts that citizenship, therefore,
is inherent to the inhabitant upon
the formation of the Government. A
historical precedent is quoted in sub
stantiation of this. The words, "We, the
people of Nebraska," in the State Consti
tution is held to refer to the inhabitants
of Nebraska at the time the State Consti
tution was adopted.
Tlie second brief alleges that the Lieu
tenant-Governor is the proper person to
bring suit, as Thayer failed to qualify
within ten days from tho time Boyd
A decision will probably not be reacheel
for two weeks.
COLORED PRESS ASSOCIATION.
I'roeeedings of tho Annual Convention
Helel at Cincinnati.
Cincinnati, March 17.—The seventh
annual convention of the Colored Press
Association of the United States began its
session here to-day. President John
Mitchell, Jr., in his address, called atten
tion to the increase of outrages in the
South, tothe plain violation of the rights
of citizens, etc. The attitude of tho two
political parties, he said, was a cause for
serious alarm. The defeat of the Blair
educational bill, and tho failure to favor i
the elections bill were pointers to the drift
of public sent—Beat in both these parties.
The time was not far distant when a free
American would strike back. The Re
publican party of the nation, he said,
owing to treachery in its ranks, has griev
ously disappointed us. In future the col
ored man must help himself, and do all
he can to alleviate his condition.

Special to the Record-Union.
Marysville, March 17.—0n0 of the
most shocking accidents known in years
occurred here this morning, resulting in
John F. Gray blowing the top of his head
off. Mr. Gray, who lives at the corner ot
Seventh and II streets, owns a 200-acre
farm in Iloncut. He intended to go there
this morning. He left the house at 8
o'clock and went to a barn adjoining,
with an overcoat over his left arm anel a
45-caliber Winchester rilie in his right
hand. Five minutes later the report of a
gun was heard, but no attention was paid
to it. About an hour later Mr. Gray's
little 5-year-old daughter went into the
barn and found him dead. The alarm
was given and soon a large crowd gath
ered. Mr. Gray was lying on his back in
the rear ofa cart, his ovcre*oat on the fioor
on one side and his rifle on the other.
The whole top of his head was blown off
and his brains were scattered about. In
the upper floor of the barn was a bullet
hole. The appearances i ndicated that Mr.
Gray was pulling the gun into the cart,
when the hammer wits struck and the
loaded gun was discharged. Mr. Gray
has been going up to the ranch fre
quently, and usually carried the gun in
the cart. He was a happy, prosperous
farmer. He loaves a widow and six chil
dren, the eldest of whom is teaching
school at Reed's Station. He is a cousin
of J. C. and W. J. Gray of Sutter County
anel of A. C. Gray of Marysville.

On motion tho Treasurer was ortlered
to settle with the railway company ac
cording to thcreport ofthe Finance Com
The matter of advocating the appoint
ment of General N. P. Chipman as Chief
ofthe Horticultural anil Viticultural Bu
reau at the World's Fair was discusseel.
On motion the Chair was requested to ap
point a committee of three to have full
charge of the selection of some man for
indorsement for tlie appointment in ques
tion. John P. Irish, William EL Mills
and J. A. Morrissey were appointed.
The Secretary read a communication
from Theodore F. Coch, an immigration
agent of Minnesota, asking perniissiem to
establish a permanent exhibition of Cali
fornia products in Minnesota, with a view
to directing emigration to California,
among the class of farmers who are anx
ious to go in for fruit raising.
Mr. Mills stated that Mr. Coch was ono
of the best immigration agents in the
United States and should be assisted in
his proposed enterprise as much as pos
sible. He said that instead of California
being tho best advertised State in the
Union itis tho worst, owing to the lack
of facilities for explaining to emigrants
apparent contradictions in the repre
sentations of tho resources of this State.
He instanced the case of a man who wrote
him that certain literature had stated that
the rainfall in Tehama County was abun
dant and that prapes dried in the open
air. Tho man wanted to know if the
rain fell while the grapes were laid out to
dry, and if so, how was it possible for the
grapes to dry.
_Vlr. Mills spoke further concerning the
advisability of an exhibition for North
ern and Central California at Chicago.
The letters he has received show that tho
Eastern people want exact information,
and instanced the lettorof an acute in
quirer who lives at Peoria, 111. Peoplo
who have not been here know little of
California weather and industries.
California is the worst aelvertised State
in the Union, because the people do not
know what they ought to know. He
thought that the board should have a
representative in New York and Chie*ago
with an exhibit. The exhibits would be
placed in grocery storo windows.
The matter of how best to make an ex
hibition was further discussed. Mr. Hib
bard thought that it would be well to
place the present exhibit in the Boaril of
Traele rooms in the new ferry building at
tho foot of Market street, and he would
have all exhibits carefully labeled to show
the acreage production, tho cost of pro
duction, tho proceeds per acre, etc. He
moved the appointment ofa committee to
inquire into the subject of new quarters.
The motion was adopted.
The matter of permanent exhibits in
Chicago, New York and other largo East
ern cities was talked over at some length,
the speakers generally favoring the plan.
Tlie following officers and Directors
were elected: President. ___. J. .iregorv;

Ovation in London.
LENGTHY ADDRESS DELIVERED AT

Agony at Rome — Now Cabinet
Formed ln Nicaragua—Over Two
Ilnnelred Passengers Drowned by
tho Sinking of a Steamer in Gib
Special to the Kecord-Union.
London, March 17.—Gladstone re
ceived a tremendous spontaneous ovation
to-day. He was leaving Charing Cross
railroad station for Hastings, when an
immense crowd gathered at the depot.
Tho crowd cheered itself hoarse after
Gladstone appearotl, broke down the bar
riers and made a rush for the "grand old
man," cheering anel waving hats and
handkerchiefs. A number of extra en
thusiastic admirers scrambled on top of
tho cars and yelled and cheered and
waved until the train, starting suddenly,
throw several of them on the tracks anel
the platform. Two were so seriously in
jured that they hael to be taken to the
hospital. Several others wore badly cut
and bruised. Previous to the departure
of the train the Executive Committee of
the Radical Association presented an ad
dress to Gladstone, in which it was stated
the association was hopeful ofa brilliant
triumph for (iladstone and his followers
in the coming elections, but the turmoil
prevailing in the depot was so great that
Gladstone was utterly unable to say a
word in reply.
When the train in which Gladstone was
traveling stopped at Tunbridge, Kent, a
large crowd was assembled there. Glael
steuie replied to the addresses presented
to him. He assured them that whatever
measure home rule proposed its spirit
and basis would be unchangeel from those
of the former one, and that it would bo
compatible with English honor, and
would bring peaeo and contentment to
Ireland and life to the union.
Upon his arrival at Hastings Glaelstone
received another ovation. The streets
were brilliantly decorated with bunting
and tho veteran parliamentarian was.wel
comed in a truly royal style.
In reply to an address at Hastings,
Gladstone said he found little to blame in
Salisbury's foreign policy during recent
years, but added that ho condemned the
policy of Goschen, Chancellor e>f the Ex
chequer, in concocting fictitious surpluses
and concealing real expenditures from
Parliament in order to manufacture a
Alluding to tho Irish Parliamentary
party, Gladstone said Parnell's speech, in
which ho said he had opposed the claims
of labor candidates in England, in conse
quence of an obligation ho was under to
the Liberal leaders, was absolutely un
true, so far as he (Gladstone*) was con
cerned. He had always beon re*ady to
support the claims of labor candidates.
Touching upon tho painful disclosure
of the divorce court, Gladstone said it
was not his place to judge of tho amount
of delinquency, but it was tho part of the
Liberals to consider upon what principles
they would be guided in the disposal of
their votes. The Liberals know that tho
cause of homo rule depends upon them.
Tho Liberals, added tho veteran states
man, had arrived at a elcfinite conclusion
in regard to Parnell. Ho (Gladstone) wa.s
merely a reporter of tho general convic
tion that the party was against Parnell.
The Liberals woro ready to face defeat,
exclusion and misfortune, but they were
not prepared to create a constitutional
leadership for Ireland uneler such a guid
ance as Parnell's. [Cheers.]
In conclusion, Gladstone expressed the
opinion that it was a duty of the Liberals
to prosecute this great and patriotic pur
pose, and to obtain justice for Ireland,
know iug that by a courageous applica
tion of liberal principles they wou lei se
cure the union of the classes, the dominion
of law, and the stability of the crown.
Gladstone'also made an address in the
Gaiety Theater. Ho expressed entire
confidence in the future of Liberalism.
Ho pointed out with regard to the Irish
members that each hael entered Parlia
ment subject to a pleelge that on every
emostion affecting Ireland tho minority
should sacrifice its own opinious and co
operate with the majority. Every mem
ber of the Irish party^ from the leader
downward, was bound by this pledge.
It is true that in October, 1881, he de
nounced Parnell in the severest terms,
whereas for soveral years past ho has
been in active co-operation with him. He
had denounced him because Parnell, be
fore then, on moro occasions than ono,
had used language dangerous to the em
pire respecting the total separation of
Ireland; also because Parnell bitterly op
posed the land Act, upon Avhieh tho Lib
erals relied as a great instrument for the
Irish grievance. When home rule was
introduced in tho House it was frankly
and magnanimously adopteel by the Tris'li
party. The plan was based on twin ideas:
first, handing over to Ireland a full, effi
cacious control of her local affairs; and
second, maintaining equally full efficaci
ous imperial control of those affairs.
"If any fresh plan of homo rule is pro
posed, as I trust it may be," eontinueel
Gladstone, "I hope it will be founded on
a rigid fidelity to those bases, neither of
which can be justifiably separated from

Mr. McCarthy, in response to tho toast,
"Ireland a Nation," said: "I no more

[Jerome Napoleon Bonaparte was born
in Baltimore, Md., in 1832, was graduated
at West Point in 1552, and served on the

London, March 17.—The Times' Paris
correspondent, commenting on the death
of Prince Napoleon, deals severely with
the attendant circumstances at the death
scene. He says the religious fanaticism
and human ambition mado at the sick
bed, where modern science had prolonged
for a fortnight a life otherwise ended long
ago, the church and throne disputing for
possession of the body, which each tie
sired to cc*nvort into a trophy, and the
bigotry on one side and thirst for power
on the other, added prolonged horrors to
tho dying agony. Each had recourse to
lying- in order to simulate success. Pub
lic opinion revolted by the hideous zeal
of those who torture the dying in order
to make them clients for the confessional.
It revolted still more by acts the rebel son,
who still persists in rebellion in order to
secure an ephemeral useless power.
The confessions of cardinals, nuns anel
other religious people have shown a
willingness to revive all the horrors of
the Middle Ages only. The ono who
leaves the scene with a higher reputation
is the Prince himself, who preserved in
tact his force will to die as he had lived,
with horror counterfeit in soul and with
contempt for hypocrites on his lips.
HIS MISSION TO ROME.
London, March 17.—The Paris corre
spondent of the News says: Prince Na
poleon went to Rome to counsel King
Humbert on the dangers of the Driebunel
to the House of Savoy and to advocate
the plan of the Duchess D'Uzes to have
Prince Naples marry Princess Helena of
Orleans instead of Princess Letitia, whom
the Duchess had destined for the Due
D'Orleans. Prince Napoleon gave copies
of his will and memoirs to several trusteel
friends, in order to prevent tampering,
and ordered that tho memoirs should not
be published during his lifetime.
Ex-Empress Eugenic says Abbe Pujol
administered extreme unction to enable
King Humbert to give a state funeral.
Prince Napoleon's memoirs establish
by written evidence the fact that ho did
nover agree with Napoleon 111., even on
the day following the disavowal of tho

Over Two Hundred Passengers Perish
by tho Sinking of a Steamer.
Girrai-Tar, March 17.— The British
steamship Utopia, from Italian ports,
bound to New York with 700 Italian emi
grants aboard, collided to-day with the
British ironclad Rodney, anchored in
Gibraltar Bay, and sank soon after. A
southwest gale was blowing at the time.
Many women anel children were drowned.
A large number clinging to the rigging
have beeu rescued by the boats from the
channel squadron. Intense excitement
prevails on shore.
On entering the bay tho Utopia, boforo
colliding with the Rodney, ran into tho
British ironclad Anson. The Utopia
sank within a low minutes. The boats
wore immediately lowered from the iron
elaels, and also from the Swedish man-of
war Froya. These boats rescued 180
persons, who are now on board various
vessels. Many others who were rescued
were lodged in tiio Government build
ings on shore. It is reported that the
crew of the Utopia wore saved, but that
over 200 passengers perished.
DESCRIPTION OF THE VESSEL.
New York, March 17.—The Utopia,
which was wrecked at Gibralter Bay, be

She was an iron screw steamer of 2,731
tons displacement, 678 horse-power, and
was built in Glasgow, Scotland, in 1874.

The Rodney, which sank her, is one of
the recent additions to tho British navy

Dakota Has Been Tendered tho
Ministry to Japan — Orders navo

Washington, March 17.—1t is rnn_ored\
to-night tliat Secretary Noble will soon'
tei'der his resignation. This rumor is*
not generally credited, however. Hi**
friends insist that there is nothing in it.
On tho other hand, it is declared stoutly
by otiiers that his resignation is now
in tho hands of the President. Noblo
declared that he would frustato the
schemes of certain lobbyists, who se
curoe the passage through Congress of an
appropriation of nearly §3,000,000 to pay
the C lioctaw and Chickasaw Indians for
their nbadowy claim to laud now occu

Orders Issued to Discontinue Enlist
ments for the Present.
Washington, March 17.—Orders havo
been sent to the various receiving ships
of the navy to discontinue all enlistments
for the present. This is because the legal
limit of 8,250 men and boys has been nearly
reached. It was discovered last week
that the number in the service was within
forty-two of the limit, and in order to
provido for the continuous service of
men who are allowed to re-enlist it was
deemed advisable to call a halt before
there would bo no room left for these
men. In order to make more room it
was decided to discharge a number of
men whose terms of enlistment had
nearly expired of tho Galena. About,
fifty men wero to have been dischargee*
upon the arrival of the ship at Ports-*
mouth; but it is probable that they wilt
be retained now uutil the end. It is ex
pected that if thero should be no relief
offered by legislation during the next
Congress, it will be impossible to prop
erly man the vessels that have been or
dered by name to participate in tho grand
naval review of 1893, in connection with
tho World's Fair. In other words, tho
vessels named in the official announce
ments will need more men than are now
allowed for the entire navy, without rec
oiling the ships that are absolutely essen
tial to keep in foreign stations. The an
nual appeals by the Secretary of the Navy
to Congress for relief from this constantly
growing difficulty, have been ignored
until it has become the dilemma with
which tlie Navy Department now has to
face. Tho gravity of tho situation may bo
realized when it is stated that it is now
impossible to give the vessels in commis
sion their full complement of men. Tho
cruiser Newark is about one hundred
men short, and there is scarcely a vessel
in tho navy with its full complement of

The First Application Decided in.
Favor of the Settlor.
Washington, March 17.—The first ap-i

March 3, 1891, was made to-day in a decis
ion by Secretary Noblo in the case of
Cyrus B. Rawson and Jacob A. Shoe-'
maker of Bishop, Cal., charged with un-<
lawfully cutting 74,000 feet of timber from,
public lands in that State.
It appears from the record that tho tim- ,
ber was cut by Rawson, and 580,000 feetJ(
manufactured into lumber and used by.
him in improving his ranches by build-:
ing houses, barns, etc., and that 167,000<
feet were sold. Rawson made a proposi-1
tion in the settlement of the case to pay
for tho lumber sold to his neighbors, butt
contended that he was- entitled to tho**
lumber used by himself. Tho Secretary
sustains this view.
