mSGKAOEFOL ADMISSIONS BV THE
Iiargo Sums Duo to Soldiers, Sailors, mid
Other Claimants WJto Aro Ignorant of
tho Fact Knowledge of Thoir Rights
Deliberately "Withhold From Tlicin.
Secretary Winilom yesterday sent to the Sen
ate a communication In response to a resolution
directing him to Inform the Senate whether
there bo Hue claims ami accounts in his poses
sion in favor of soldiers and sailors and others
of the United States, of which thero is reason to
beliovo them to bo in ignorance, and whether
knowledge of such claims Is withheld from
them by the Department. In answer to this
resolution Secretary Wiudom cucloses com
munications from the Second Auditor and the
Comptrollers on tho subject. Tho Second Audi
tor, iu his communication, says that he has no
desire to conceal any facts bearing on tho sub
ject and believes that if the military and pay
records of each of tho 2,700,000 soldiers who
served during tho late war were carefully ex
amined it would be found that in many in
stances the United States is Indebted to the
The Second Auditor cites instances of pay and
bounty duo the heirs of soldiers who died before
serving out their terms of enlistment, and in
speaking of the class of claims which have been
presented and settled but not paid, say6 the
amounts declared to be due tho soldiers have
been returned to the Treasury Department by
the War Department officials, because the
claimants could not bo found. These claims
refer to colored soldiers and their heirs for ar
rears of pay and bounty. A largo amount of
money due colored soldiers stilf remains, says
the Auditor, but frequent demands for the pay
ment of this money aro made and allowed.
Touching the question of arrearages of sol
diers' pay and bounty he says that all court
martial lines and forfeitures by desertion, and
all moneys due deceased officers and soldiers
remaining unclaimed for three years, wero ap
propriated for tho establishment and support of
the National Homo for Disabled Soldiers, the
moneys so used to be repaid upon tho demands
of their legal heirs. From 1SG0 to 1875 the Sec
ond Auditor's Office paid to the National Sol
diers' Home $0,128,252 In money due deceased
Speaking of claims due soldiers of which
they aro iguoraut, Mr. Patterson states there
are no doubt unclaimed arrearages of pay to
which soldiers were entitled, but the facts can
only be developed by an individual examina
tion of the records in each case.
He further says there is no law which would
permit him notifying claimants of the existence
of a claim of which they are ignorant, unless
upon application received by him as contem
plated by law. If, after presenting a claim, a
claimant dies and no one prosecutes the claim,
it is regarded as having been abandoued.
In such cases no settlement is made.

of tho Secretary of tho Treasury and tho Solici
tor, and that thero is no possibility that the
judgments can bo collected except by the em
ployment of special agents. Tho passage of
the bill as amended Is recommended by tho

A BIGGER BONANZA
Than tho Famous Comstock Mine A "Won
derful Gold Strike.
Ciiicaoo, July 12. The Inter-Ocean's St.
Elmo (Col.) correspondent telegraphs that
paper the results of a visit to the Tin Cup
Mines, where such a wonderful gold strike Is
reported to have recently been made. The cor
respondent says: "When the writer visited tho
mine last evening it showed in the face three
feet thick. From assays made In the camp It Is
thought to run twenty-two ounccp. of gold,
while In nearly every piece of rock in the same
vein could bo found free gold in Quantities.
There is no doubt that the ore averages at the
least $1,000 a ton, while masses of "iron run
from ten to twenty feet thick, and assay from
$15 to $20. Tho solution summed un is this:
If the streak or vein just discovered ls'contlnu
ous on its depth to tho usual extent
of contact veins, there Is more
gold In tho camp than any discovered
since the days of the Pikes Peak excitement.
Yesterday morning there lay disclosed a vein
of fifteen feet in thickuo6S, the bottom eight
feet being iron manganese and the upper seven
feet free gold-bearing quartz. The quartz is of a
light color, while porous free gold and Hakes
of gold are plainly visible. From an essay
made of the iron ore Wednesday got at Aspen
It was found to run $2S per ton in gold besides
iron. Tin Cup years ago was a prosperous
camp, but, like Alpine, was abandoned owing
to tho enormous expense in shipping ores to
concentrators aud smelters. If tho streak con
tinues tho Tin Cup will prove another Lead
ville, while the lode now open will prove a big
ger bonanza than the famous Comstock mine
In Nevada. But for a few days yet everybody
at Tin Cup is resting on the anticipation of
ONLY THREE MEN KILLED
In a Battle IJotwcon Rival Mayors of a
El Paso, Tex., July 12. The following par
ticulars in regard to the battle between the ri
val mayors of Ysleta aud their adherents have
been received here: The sheriff from El Paso
reached Ysleta at 3 o'clock this morning and
succeeded in stopping the battle by persuad
ing the forces of Mayor Alderetteto withdraw.
The party headed by Gaal, who resisted ar
rest, is in his house, which the sheriff has sur
rounded. It Is now believed that thero were
but three men killed instead of six, as at first
reported. It is learned that the trouble orig
inated in this way: Benlgno Alderette, as mayor
of Ysleta, has charge of the Acequla and had
a couple of men cleaning it out, when Gaal
sent a posse of armed men to drive Alder
ette's men from their work. Gaal claimed
that, he was mayor, and put his own men to
work and refused to discontinue when ordered
by Alderetto to do so. Tho mayor then so
cured a warrant for the arrest of Gaal to place
him under a peace bond and deter him from
further interference with Acequla. Gaal sum
moned his armed followers around him and
refused to be arrested, and the fight followed.
Latek. Er, Paso, Tex., July 12. The fight
terminated In a peaceful surrender at daylight
to a sheriff's posse. Gaal, who resisted arrest,
cannot be found. Sixteen men have been ar
rested and brought here to tho county jail. It
turns out that only one man is killed a Mexi
can, of Mayor Alderette'6 posse, who tried to
arrest Gaal. Another has a 6llght wound in
tho head. Twenty-two Winchesters and pis
tols were seized and brought here, because no
Ysleta merchant was willing to store them. No
further trouble is anticipated by tho sheriff.
The Metric System Recommended.
The President yesterday transmitted to Con
gress a letter from the Secretary of State, ac
companied by a report on weights and meas
ures, unanimously adopted by the International
American Conference. Tho Secretary in his
letter says: "This report, as will bo seen,
recommends tho adoption by the United States
of the metrical and decimal system of weights
and measures, which Is" now in use by the gov
ernments and people of all the other Americau
republics and most of tho nations of Europe,
and which is already authorized by tho laws of
the United States. Tho adoption of this system
in tho Customs Service would, it is believed,
greatly promote the public convenience, and I
beE leavo to submit, for tho consideration of
Congress, tho draft of a bill for Unit purpose."
Tho draft referred to reads: "Bo it enacted,
etc., that on and after tho 1st of July, 1891, tho
metric system of weights and measures, author
ized by tho act of Concrcss annroved Julv 28.
1800, shall bo used exclusively in tho Customs
Service of the United States."

Ono of tho most imposing swells at dances,
luncheons, receptions, and other social "func
tions" hero during tho past threo winters was a
handsome youth who wns known as Mr. B. Shep
herd White. In the circle in which he moved a
dance or a reception was never complete unless
"Shep" was there. Ho was extremely fond of
good clothes, and his handsome figure always
appeared arrayed in the best on the market,
and cut in the latest style. lie lived well, and
the question was often asked how he managed
to do it.
He was employed as a drummer in the estab
lishment of J. II. Coming, whose tile shop is in
the Sun building on F street. The principal
work that "Shep" attended to was looking
after fire-escapes, his employers representing
the house of Chester B. Alber, of Pittsburg.
Four mouths ago this firm put a fire-escape on
the Louise Homo and young Whito was given
the bill, amounting to $1,000, for collection.
He had Building Inspector Entwistle examine
and approve the escape, and armed with this
voucher he called on Messrs. Hyde and
Mathews, the trustee's of the Home, and pre
senting his bill asked for payment. Every
thing being legal the bill was promptly paid,
tho check being drawn to Chester B. Alber.
As soon as Whito obtained the check he
forged the name of Mr. Alber and had it made
payable to himself, and drew the money from
Riggs's Bank. He then repaired to Lewis John
son's Bauk and deposited the money In ills own
name. Ills mode of llviug of lato had been
faster than ever, and friends of Mr. Alber wrote
him that Whito was living at least at the rate
of $2,000 a year at a salary of $720. This
startled Mr. Alber, who had the most unbounded
confidence in White, and he deemed it his duty
to send down a man to make an examination.
Mr. Benjamin Curry was sent on tho mission.
When tho asrent arrived "Shep" hastened to
Johnson & Co.'s, drawing out the remainder of
the $l,000,about$420,and left for parts unknown.
It Is believed that his destination was Ken
tucky, whence he came. He left a note say
ing ho had done wrong and that his body
would be found at the bottom of the river.
This was on Thursday evening. The agents of
the Louise Home were seen and they produced
receipts to show that the bill for the fire-escape
had been paid. Other transactions by
White of a similar character were also dis
covered. His rooms at the Langham, where ho lived
in comfortable style, were examined, and out
side of about fifty stylish suits of clothes,
souvenirs from hundreds of germans, and tho
photographs of as many young society ladies
of this city, nothing of value was discovered.
Several copies of his own photograph were
obtained, and they have been mailed to various
sections in tho hope of effecting his capture.
The police have the caso in hand, and are
using every means possible to bring back the
erring society and firo-escapo man to the
clutches of the District law.
COL.. CANADAY IN DANGER.
A Cable Car Smashes His Buggy, And In
jures Himself and Horse.
Ex-Sergeant-at-Arms Canaday had a narrow
escape from death last night, owing to his at
tempting to pass a cable car. Col. Canaday
was driving his bay mare to a little light Brew
ster, and at 10:30 o'clock reached Seventh and
II streets on his way home. A cable car was
coming down tho grade, and believing that
ho could cross before it, ho gave tho whip to
his horso and drove on. The horso shied, and
before Col. Canaday could get him down the car
was upon them. The colonel jumped out, and
In doing so turned a complete somersault on
the hard rock pavement. The car struck the
uuggy, demolishing it, and hit tho hor6o and
threw it to tho ground. Tho damage was a de
molished buggy, an injured horse, and a severe
shock to Oanady.

Beiilin, July 12. Emperor William, on ar
riving at Elde, on the Faa Fiord, on Thursdoy,
sent a despatch to Chancellor Von Caprlvi an
nouncing his intention to shorten his voyage
and return to Kiel on July 21. Tho gravity of
the situation in the Balkans and tho increased
prospect of trouble with Franco over tho Eng
lish agreement makes necessary tho Emperor's
presence, and keeps both the Chancellor and
Minister Miguel from taking a holiday.
Tho other Ministers, llerren Von BerlepsEch,
Von Bocttlcher, Von Gossler, and Ilcrr Furth
aro absent from Berlin, but thoy havo been
warned not to arrange for a protracted leave.
Although the prospects of a permanent pcaco in

fidence remains strong in the continuance of
repose for some time to come. Even the prob
able abdication of Princo Ferdinand, with a
subsequent revolution in Bulgaria, will not bo

The maintenance of peace, according to tho
official view, is certain until after the confer
ence between Emperor William and tho Czar at
St. Petersburg, when tho resources of diplo
macy will bo exhausted in a final effort to
harmonize Austrian and Russian relations in
the Balkan peninsula. Tho Russian news
papers, the Novoc Vrcmya, tho Novosti, and
the Viedomosti, concur in tho hopeful view that
Emperor William, freed from tho tutelage of
Princo Bismarck, will succeed in his efforts to
effect an amicable arrangement with tho Czar.
Official opinion here, based on tho known fact
that Emperor William has definite proposals
to lay before tho Czar, is also hopeful. The
Czar has as yet given no sign of how he will
The Berliner Tngchlatt has a telegram from
Rome, which purports to give information
drawn from Prime Minister Crispi. In this it
is asserted that the Czar's advisers, considering
the time opportuneInsist upon war. Tho chiefs
of the Dreibund, tho telegram adds, will make
united efforts to maintain peace. They have
gravest and most urgent reasons for preparing
for eventualities. A fresh difficulty has arisen
in France over the fifth article of the conven
tion, which affirms tho reciprocal regime of
Germany and England within the territories
between the Beuuo River and Lako Tchad.
The article did not appear in the first pub
lished draft of the convention, and since the
official text has been issued the French govern
ment has discovered that tho articlo is an in
terference with the French claim to the upper
Niger, besides leading to the f uturo extension
of the anglo-German sphere of influence from
the Niger to the Nile.
If M. Rlbot continues to make the recogni
tion of the French claims in tho Niger District

In the caucus were critically discussed,

the feasibility of securing tho continuous
