Does Not License Liquor Selling.
CHICAGO, May 27.—Following tho decis

inal package" case, an interesting circu

Kevenoe Mason. The Commissioner

I Statins: that in many parts of the country
; retail liquor dealers claim to hold a Gov

whatever description, and only puts a
; yearly tax on liquor-sellers, and* does not
i seek to iuterfere in prohibition districts."

cide the Question as to "Who Has
the Power to Appoint a City Treas

Raised In Chicago for the World's
Special to the Record-Usiow.
Columbus (0.), May 27.—The Farmers'
I Union of Ohio, in convention to-day, dis
cussed the third party movement, and
i after the debate a proposition to name an
independent State ticket was defeated—63
A platform was adopted declaring for
an equal and fair distribution of the bur
den of taxation on all forms of wealth
listed at its actual value; school books at
actual cost; suppression of all traffic in
intoxicating liquors as a beverage; the
issue of not less than fifty dollars per
capita, full legal tender money, to con
sist of gold and silver on a parity with
each other and paper.
Expressions from many of the dele
gates show that the farmers will make
their strong light against McKinley for
Governor, taking him as the representa
tive of what they rail a pernicious tariff
system, and against the return of John
Sherman to the United States Senate.
S. A. Ellis, State Master of the Grange,
who is also President of the Farmers'
Union, said: "I do not think there is
any show for Sherman's election to the
Senate, no matter what may be the action
of the farmers at this convention. As for
myself, I will vote for no candidate for
the Legislature who will not pledge him
self to oppose Sherman's return to the
Senate. Even should no third party be
decided upon by the farmers, they will
be sufficiently strong in the next Ohio
Legislature to hinder the election of any
Senator so antagonistic to their interests
as John Sherman."
That the movers of the third party in
tend to try to beat Major McKinley in
his canvass for the Governorship of Ohio
there is no doubt. While it is a thing yet
to be accomplished, it is regarded as a
certainty by the "reformers," Farmers'
Alliance and other sorts. They do not
hesitate to predict that McKinley will be
I beaten by '20,000 majority.
Hon. Jerry Simpson, who is a pro
nounced free-trader, has been assigned to
campaign work in Ohio, and a pro
gramme has been laid out for him. There
is no other campaign to particularly de
mand his attention, and he will devote
considerable time to educating the farmers
of the Buckeye State. He will probably
go into the State the first of June, and
will make another stumping tour when
the campaign grows hotter, near the time
for the election.
TWO CITY TREASURERS.
Gov. Pattlson Appoints One and Phila
delphia's City. Council Another.
Philadelphia, May 27.—80 th branches
of the City Council to-day accepted the
resignation of City Treasurer Bardsley.
Six Democrats in the select branch en
tered a formal protest again.st allowing a
man charged with such a serious crime to
resign. Richard G. Oellers, business
manager of the Itecurd, was elected to fill
the unexpired term of Bardsley. The
Democrats refused to take any part in
this election. While the meeting was in
progress the Democrats indorsed W. Red
wood Wright, Governor Pattison's ap
Bardsley's resignation will take effect
on Saturday next, and then Philadelphia
will have two City Treasurers, one
named by the City Council and County
Coiumissiouers and one by the Governor.
The question of who is who will prob
ably be brought before the courts at
The investigation to-day developed the
fact that Bardsley had considerable deal
ing with other brokers beside Glenden-
Ing A: Co., and inferences that he specu
lated through these firms. The report
that Bardsley had hypothecated securities
of the sinking fund is denied by Mayor
District Attorney Graham to-day took
out another warrant for Bardsley's arrest,
charging him with perjury in violating
his oath of office, in using public money
for his own gain.

Ex-Senator Installs' Advice.
Hutchinson (Kan.), May 27.—At a

of the Seventh Congressional District, a
letter from ex-Senator Ingalls was read.
Among the things mentioned in the letter
he said: "Republicanism of the future
must readjust itself to the changed con
ditions of American life or it will perish.
I wish to save it from this fate by recall
ing the spirit of energy, aggressive and
patriotic force of its founders to the cam
paign of 1802. Harrison will be renomi
nated and Cleveland will be his antago
nist. If we have courage and contidence
it will be an Austerlitz. If we dickor
with popular errors, compromise with
unprincipled leaders, and sneer at honest
differences of judgment and opinion, it
will be a Waterloo."

people witnessed the fight between tho
middle-weights, Charles Turner and
Alex Greggains, lor a purse of $1,000, at
tho Occidental Club this evening. The
men appeared in tho ring: shortly before
9 o'clock, and both seemed in ex
cellent condition. Greggains' superiority
in hight and reach was very noticeable.
Ed Holman was referee.

blows on the body and face, but Greggains
responded with several hard raps on

cheers for the white man.

A few blows were exchanged, generally
in Greggains' favor. Greggains bled at

Berlin, May 27.—1t is learned that
Herr Cahensly is the principal mover in
tiie eiForts of the European Catholic emi
gration societies to induco the Pope to fol
low distinct national lines in fostering
church work among emigrants in
America. Tins subject was referred to in
Cahensly's championship of the in
terests of Germans in America has borne
fruit in frequent instructions to Herr
Yon Schloezer, German representative at
the Vatican, to use his influence when
ever he could. The Austro-Hungarian
Kmbassador, it is understood, has simi
lar instructions, and Cahensly when he
went to Home to present the memorial
of the conference, was armed with letters
of approval from many prominent Eu
ropean and Canadian Catholics.
Speaking of the nomination of Katzo
was as Archbishop in America, Kmbas
sador Yon Schloyer said to Cahensly:
"This is an important act that will inter
est all Prussia." He added that In; would
warmly congratulate the Cardinal Secre
tary of State for this choice so favorable
to German interests.
Mercier of Quebec warmly recom
mended the plan of the P.Ope, saying that
when he assisted at the Baltimore centen
ary he felt acute regret on rinding there
were no Canadians among tho American
bishops, notwithstanding there are more
' than a million Canadians in the United
It is significant that this whole busi
ness has been conducted so far without
the knowledge or advice of the American
Hierarchy. The campaign lias been di
rected solely by a committee in Germany,
which, by its activity, has secured the
support and approbation of other Euro
pean countries. There will be great curi
osity to know what view the American
bishops Avill take of the matter. The
Elan proposed in the memorial seems to
c peculiarly adapted for the preserva
tion in America of languages and race dis
tinctions of emigrants.
It has been impossible to secure a list
of the signatures to this memorial, but
the body of the document itself has been
obtained. It speaks of the Lucerne Con
gress as a meeting to consider the best
means of procuring the spiritual and
temporal welfare of their Catholic fellow
countrymen, who are emigrating to
America at a rate of upwards of 400,000 a
year. These numerous emigrants, says
the memorial, could constitute a great
power and mighty factor in the develop
ment of Catholicity in different parts of
It then goes on to detail the plans nec
essary to carry out these A^iews. First ot
all, it would be necessary to form into
separate parishes or missions, different
groups of emigrants of different nation
alities, where the numbers and resources
should be connded to priests of the same
"In this way," says the memorial, "the
cherished recollections of the fatherland
would be constantly brought back to the
emigrants. Where a limited number
of different nationalities will not permit
of separate parishes the priest directing
such groups should be conversant with
their different languages, ami should be
obliged to give instruction to all different
groups in their own language. Where
there are no Christian public schools,
parochial schools are to be established
The list of studies for those schools should
always comprise the national language of
different races of emigrants, as well as
the language and history of their adopted
Catholic associations of various kinds
should be formed to preserve Catholics
from the wicked societies of Free
Masonry, etc. As often as feasible Cath
olics of every nationality should have
some Bishops of th^ir own race. In all
Catholic countries from which emigra
tion is taking place, the Holy See should
favor and shelter seminaries and schools
instituted for the education of mission
aries for emigrants.
A number of Italian missionaries have
already gone to America, and others of
other nations are waiting for the Pope to
guarantee them untraminelod exercise of
the ministry by decree of his infallible
wisdom. Thus provided, the Holy See
will lend its indispensable co-operation
and marvelous results will be obtained.
The poor emigrants will find again in
America their own parishes, their own
schools, their own societies, their own
language, and they will prove the means
of extending the limits of Jesus Christ's
j kingdom on earth.

Sir Johnstone's Colt Common Wins In
Loxdon, May 27.--The great event on
tho English turf was run to-day at Ep
som. The weather was fine. It was the
second day of the Epsom meeting and
the race for the Derby stakes was the
event of the day. As usual tho course
was crowded with all classes and condi
tions of people, and the road from Lon
don to Epsom Downs was tilled with ve
•hicles of every description. There were
the usual conditions, and the distance
was about one mile and a half. The vic
tor was Sir Johnstone's coit Common; M.
E. Blanco's colt Gouverneur second. uml
Sir James Duke's colt Martenburg third.
There were eleven starters.
Just before the race a heavy shower set
in and the race was run in a drenching
rain. After the horses wero at the post
the first attempt to got them away re
sulted in a false start. At the next at
tempt they got away splendidly. Deem
ster went to the front and set the pace for
the quarter mile. Then Dorcas took the
lead, but was soon overhauled and passed
by Gouverneur, who led at the mile
post. Dorcas, who*had now been joined
by Common, was close up, however,
comming down Tattenham Hill, and
Common forged ahead as they entered
the straight. When the distance post
was reached he drew clear of the others
and won in a cantor. Cuttlestono ran
fourth. Siinonian, though ridden hard,
was tho last horse throughout tho race.
Common won by two lengths. Marten
hurst was a bad third. Time, 2:st> 4-5.
A French Warship Refuses Americans
tho Rlßht to Buy Bait.
New York, May 27.—A Halifax special
says: A cablegram from St. Johns, New
foundland, says the French war-ship at
St. Georgo's Bay, has refused to allow
Americans to take or buy bait there.
Under the treaty of ISIS Americans have

ACTION CANNOT BE TAKEN.
Washington, May 27.—Respecting the
action of the French Government in sta-
taming a warship at St. George's Bay,
Newfoundland, to prevent United States
fishermen from obtaining bait, it is said
at the State Department that action can
not be taken, nor can an opinion as to
the merit* of tho case be given until fur
ther advice is received. It has not yet
been made clear to the department
whether the warship ha» prevented our
fishermen from buying bait, or whether
it has prevented French inhabitants from
selling it. These are two very distinct
and different propositions. In the lirst
case it might be taken as an assertion of
authority over American citizens, while
in the second case, tho French authori
ties might be exerting undeniable au
thority over French subjects.
Toronto, May 27.—A cable from Lon

Charge that the Conservatives at the last
election lmd to face a formidable con
spiracy to subvert British institutions
to Canada and to annex the dominion to
the United States. Smith shows that Sir
John Mac Donald of Ottawa had not
dared to utter one syllable on the subject.
The charge, he says, is a figment con
structed out of materials supplied by
reptile agencies for election purposes, and
is now discarded. The Canadian Liberals
are lighting, he says, not only against
protection, but against government by

Washington, May 27.— The Seoretary
of the Treasury this morning telegraphed
the commander of the Rush to sail \>>
< >rders for tho revenue cutter Hear to
sail for Alaska were also sent by tele
graph this afternoon. While it is impos
sible to obtain positive information as to
the character of the instructions to tho
revenue ofiieers it is generally under
stood they do not differ in any' essential
particular from those of last year.
The Corwin, however, will not sail for
some days yet, and in the meantime the
Government will consider the advisabil
ity of giving the Corwin special instruc
tions modifying those under which th<>
Rush and Bear sail, the instructions pf
tho two last-named vessels being the
same as those of last year. They are not
te. seise poaching vessels unless found
illicitly sealing within the marine league,
but to warn them off.

not there is to be a closed season has

the matter will bo finally settled. If a
close season should be agreed upon, the
Treasury Department can send the rev
enue cutter Corwin to the seal Islands
with such supplementary orders as may
be needed to tit the new status of affairs.
It is thought probable, however, by
those well informed, that should a close
season be eventually agreed upon it will
not be possible for the British Govern
ment to compel the great horde of poach
ing vessels, now <m their way and in
