[ TO SAVE HIS RIGHTS.
Owner of the James 6. Swan
Files a Bill of Exceptions.
ACTION BY A CIVIL ENGINEER.
■e Wants Damages Beeanse He Was sot
Allowed to Plat a Townslte—
Breach of Promise Salt.
A bill of exceptions was filed yesterday
I in the United State? court by Chatoqua
f Tcterson, owner of the James G. Swan, to
: the ruling of Judge Hanford in granting a
. decree of condemnation and forfeiture
against the vessel for taking seal in
i Alaskan waters. The bill sets out that
I the claimant, Peterson, excepts to the
j ranng because in his pleadings he alleged
; that Bering sea is an open sea and that
i there is no law of congress declaring it to
fbe mart? clnumm. The vessel was at a
f distance of more than seventy miles from
the nearest land when seized by the
revenue cutter Richard Rush, which fact
was admitted by the government.
The bill admits that for political reasons
gn order to exclude all vessels from Bering
tea may be mvle by the president, yet in
equity and justice and by the long-estab
lished law of nations there was no tres
passing. The sealer was not working
within one marine league of the Alaska
coast or of any island belonging to the
United States. The claimant has made
no appeal from the ruling because he has
no means to prosecute such an appeal. He
bos, however, paid in the full amount of
the forfeiture, which is |350 with $18.40 for
costs, and prays for a full release of the
schooner from all demands of the United
f It is asked that the bill of exceptions be
filed and entered of record, so. that in the
event that Bering sea be decided by the
international board of arbitration to be an
open sea all of the claimant's rights may
be awarded him.

A Civil Engineer Sues Because He Was
Not Allowed to Plat It.
An action was begun yesterday in the
ioperior court by Richard Nevins, jr.,
.*K»inst Henry Hewitt, jr., president of
lhe Everett Land Company, to recover
$11,789.50 for an alleged breach of contract

\ Crow ell, who was caught on Wed
nesday by Detective Cave soliciting busi
ness for Charlie Reed and for the "Maine
Lumber Company," was given a hearing
before Judge Rivers yesterday. The testi
mony was to the effect that for several
days past Crowell had been stopping peo
ple on the street land proposing to locate
them on claims on the line of the Great
Northern road. He exhibited the cards of
Charles Reed, real estate broker, and of C.
C. Sarvis, business broker. A stubborn
defense was made, but the judge was of the
opinion that a case had been made out un
der the new "disorderly person" ordinance,
and found the prisoner guilty and sen
tenced him to thirty days' imprisonment.
Under the ordinance the jadge can im

R. G. Goule, a Newcastle miner, who
was on ilia way to take a Lake Washington
boat for home, fell off a Yesler avenue car
yesterday at Fourteenth street, but was so

wagon brought him to jail.
A message was sent yesterday to the
commander of the fort at Walla Walla
making inquiry regarding Joseph Reiss
man, who confessed to be a deserter from
that post of the United States army. No
reply was received, so Reissman probably
wanted a tree ride to Walla Walla.
Recently Judge Rivers scored Officers
Glasscock and Powers for arresting two
negroes, James Humphrey and S. Jack
son, on small evidence on the charge of
being disorderly persons. Yesterday,
after the conviction of Crowell, Charlie
Reed's man, the same officers took in tow,
Jackson and Humphrey, who, but five
minutes before, were released by Justice
A on Tobel on the charge of grand larceny
in the Dahl case. As they are men who,
it is alleged, live apon the wages of sin,
and have no regular business, an at
tempt will be made to convict them of be
ing disorderly persons.
James Welch, a youth who has been in
trouble many times, and who is threat
ened with being sent to the Reform school,
yesterday charged Martin Wall, before
Justice Von Tobel, with assault and bat
tery. The judge dismissed the case as
being a family quarrel. Welch is a de
praved boy, and the evidence which he
gave himself was of an unclean character.
E. A. Lewis, James Ellwood and Thomas

Judge Rivers of being disorderly persons,

thirty days on the same charge, and

Juditn Bredsell was lined $25 by Judge

Justice Von Tobel yesterday. The two
men were discharged, but the woman was
sent to jail in default of s7iio bonds to ap

Prosecuting Attorney Miller, in order to
make sure that Dahl, the prosecuting wit
ness, had lind the checks in his possession,
wired tne Spokane Savings bank and re
ceived a reply stating that l)ahl had all
the money there which he claimed to
have. The property consisted of a certifi
cate of deposit for $306.10 and one for
SIOB, and an order on Shepard, Henry &
Co. for $lO. In addition to this Dahl was
relieved of over S3O in gold. He went into
the woman's room and hid his effects in

WARDS IN "THE LION'S MOUTH."
A Fine Performance of s Grand
"The Lion's Mouth" was presented at
the Seattle opera-house last night before a
large audience by Frederick Warde and
his company. The actor was enthusias
tically received, and the play scored a dis
tinct success. At the end of Act 111. Mr.
Warde was called before the curtain sev
eral times and was constrained to speak.
Ladies and Gentlemen: lam deeply honored by
the fciudly reception accorded the ladies and
gentlomen of my company und myself. We
study to thoroughly merit this. That we are
unable to utilize our scenery in mounting the
play in the manner it deserve*, is not our fault,
not yours, not the fault of your manager, sim
ply our mutual misfortune. I trust wa shall
continue to merit your warm favor during our
The actor's graceful speech pleased all
and the play proceeded.
"The Lion's Mouth," by Carleton, is a
play of great power and is rich with the
promise of what may yet come from that
gifted writer. It is written of Venice and
her struggle for liberty, and though tragic
in its nature it possesses enough of humor
and delicate romance to soften its sterner
motive and to sustain throughout the
liveliest interest. It is full of grow
ing interest and contains fine climaxes
with the exception of the finale of the sec
ond act. The curtain falls in this act upon
the lovers walking across the stage and is
somewhat disappointing, but in all else
the play is strong, original and its lines at
times rise to genuine classical power and
beauty. As Paul de Novarra, an exile, Mr.
Warde is given a part well suited to his
capacity. It is full of strong pass
ages wherein the patriot and ardent
lover are] given full scope.
Charles D. Herman as the priest Angelo,
was most excellent. He played the can
ning, crafty priest with rare judgment.
As Lenora, the heroine. Miss Adele Bel
garde was somewhat disappointing. She
has wonderful ability, but uses her voice
in a manner that erates upon the nerves.
Miss Bowman made a splendid Marcella,
and her comedy work was one of the re
freshing features of the play. The cast
was a very large one, and in tlie main sat
isfactory. The performance was one of
the most entertaining as a whole ever
given in the Seattle opera-house.
Tonight "Damon and Pythias" will be
given, with substantially the same cast.
Tomorrow night "Richard III." will be
presented in a novel manner. Mr. Warde
lias not yet determined but be thinks of
giving the play without scenery. He will
probably arrange the stage with a semi
circular background of ancient tapestryand
make it a wall, as an arras. If he does it
will be the first experiment of the kind in
America and will be watched with deep in
Emma Juch Next Week.
A rare treat for Seattle will be the first pro
duction in this city of the much-talked-of
prize opera by the young Italian composer
l'ietro Mascagni, "Cavalleria liusticana."
No operatic work ever written has created
the amount of favorable criticisms as have
been occasioned by this meritorious com
position. The opera is not only accepta
ble for its superior grade of music, but is a
rare novelty in the method of production.
Instead of ringing down the curtain, as is
done in other operas, the stage is left in a
flood of light, and the intermission is
taken up bv the orchestra playing the
famous "Intermezzo," an orchestrated
number at once grand, beautiful, sublime,
and what may be termed catchy. This
number, when it received its first hearing
in Boston, Mass., was the occasion for the
most stupendous amount of applause and
enthusiasm ever heard or seen in a the
ater, being re-demanded no less than live
times. Tfie Juch company carry an or
chestra peculiarly adapted to the giving of
a perfect rendition of this wonderful musi
cal number. "Cavalleria Knsticana." or
Kustic Chivalry, will be the opening opera.
At Cordray's Theater.
"My Partner" attracted a well-filled
house at Cordray's last night. The per
formance ran smoothly throughout, and
the ensemble of the cast is artistie. The
auditorium has special attractions this

CONTRACT FOR BONDS.
It Has Been Signed, Sealed and
THE QUIBBLE AS TO THE DATE.
How the Apparent Conflict Aroaa Be
tween Two Council Resolutions-
Opinion aa to the Sale.
The contract between the city of Seattle
and Blair dt Co., of New York, for the deliv
ery to the latter of $1,2(35,000 bonds was sign
ed by the mayor yesterday, sealed by the
city clerk and delivered. There will be
1,265 bonds of SI,OOO each, to which will be
f attached forty coupons, each representing
semi-annual interest payments for twenty
years. Blair <fc Co. have telegraphed H.
C. Barroll, their agent, that the bonds
will be in Seattle about May 2, ready for
signature. As some complication might
arise by the change of comptroller the
understanding has been reached that the
new incumbent shall not qualify until the
bonds have been signed, so that C. W.
Ferris will have the honor of signing the
No legal proceedings have been filed by
way of injunction or in anyway question
ing the bonds or the contract. The only
question that has arisen is as to a resolution
of the city council known as joint resolu
tion No. 107, which was alleged to have
made the date of opening bids April 11
instead of April 4, and as to the amount of
the certified check required with ea'ch bid.
The question is the merest quibble, and
the misunderstanding which arose as to it
is due to the interested misrepresentations
of unsuccessful bidders.
When the time was approaching for the
publication of a call for bids, Comptroller
i'erris laid the matter before Mayor Hall,
Alderman Pontius and Delegate Kittinger,
who were the chairmen of the two finance
committees of the city council. They di
rected him to prepare the necessary pa
pers, and agreed to have a resolution giv
ing authority for the publication passed. A
resolution known as joint resolution No.
105, was, on February 29, adopted by
the council, directing the mayor,
comptroller and li nance committees
of the two houses to take all necessary
steps toward securing bids for the bonds.
They prepared a statement calling for bids
to be opened at 2 o'clock on Monday,
April 4, the bids to be accompanied by
certified checks of $5,000. On March 17,
printed copies of the statement were
mailed to thirty of the leading bond brok
ers ot the United States, and on March 13
copies were mailed to every bank in Se
The following notice was also published
in the official newspapers, beginning
March 22 and continuing until the morn
ing of April 4:

No other notice or call of any kind was
Meantime, Thomas R. Shepard, of
Burke, Shepard <fc Woods, who had been
employed by the city to draft the bond or
dinance, considered it his duty to draw up
a resolution calling for bids. He sent in a
typewritten form, wherein the date was
printed April 4 and the amount $5,000 for
checks. It also passed the board of alder
men, but during the discussion Mr.
Snepard wrote in some interlinea
tions of a technical character in
lead pencil. He also changed the date
in pencil to April 11, because one of the
members expressed the opinion that the
4th was too early. The amendment was
not put. 'When the resolution went to the
house of delegates the subject of the date
was not raised, but the question of the
amount of the check was, and it was
raised by amendment to $25,000 and so
passed, but by an oversight the resolution
was not returned to the board of aldermen
for their concurrence in the amendment,
and it therefore became entirely abortive.
Two days afterward, when City Clerk
Miller was preparing document! for the
mayor's signature, he noticed the pen
cilled alterations, and referred to the
records to see which were carried. He
found that several amendments had been
made, and those he wrote in ink over the
pencil marks. He found that the date had
not been amended, and concluded, there
fore, that the pencilled amendment as to
the 11th had not been adopted, which
was true, and accordingly assumed that
the original date, the 4th, was the correct
one. In order to make sure, he inquired
of Comptroller Ferris which was the cor
rect date, and learning that the 4th was
the one decided upon, and that the
notices had already been sent out, was
continued in hii opinion that the 11th
was not adopted.
Although there Is evidence that the
house decided to make the amount of the
checks $25,000, the necessary amendment
was not made in the resolution, and sub
sequent inquiry developing that the no
tices were out and that the amendment
had not been conlirined by the aldermen,
the resolution, No. 107, was seen to be
wholly unnecessary even if it had been a
There is no doubt that Thomas R.
Shepard made the changes in the resolu
tion, but it is equally certain that they
were not legally confirmed, and the orig
inal resolution remained in full force.
11. C. Harroll left Seattle last night. He
says Judge Dillon is so far satisfied of the
legality of all proceedings that it is very
improbable recourse will be had to the
supreme court of Washington for judicial
(j. \V. T. Kiley. who was the second
highest bidder, said last night that, al
though defeated, he was satisfied with the
regulanty of all material proceedings.
"Seattle has reason," he added, '-to be
very well satisfied with the result. Her
bonds have been sold at the hishest price
on the i'acitic coast, and the result
gives the best evidence of the city's
credit abroad; it shows a degree of confi
dence in the city's financial security sec
ond to no city west of Chicago. When
the bids were opened and the highest so
clearly determined there shouid have been
no hesitation. The city's good taith
should be held sacred. N"J subsequent
bid snould be considered, for even if the
city could haze saved J19.000 instead of

FIGHT OVKR COMPTROLLER.
The Campaign Committee and "Tele
graph" at Odds Over Appointments.
The appointment of J. M. Carson as
city comptroller has not yet been con
firmed. though the city council has acted
favorably upon two other of the mayor's
appointments made at the same tirae--
those of B. E. Bennett as park commis
sioner, and W. A. Beck as clerk of the
municipal court. It does not now seem
likely that the council will force the with
drawal of Mr. Carson's name, as it did
that of E. F. Wittier, though it ia an open
secret that the breach between the mayor
and the council is so wide that many of
the members would like to pursue such a
course of active hostility.
The appointment of Mr. Carson, like
several others made by the mayor, has ex
cited deep discontent among the workers
of the Democratic party. They had no
particular objection to Mr. Carson, except
that they wanted some one else, L. D.
Ross. They did not love Caesar less but
Rome more. The Democratic municipal
campaign was managed by young men,
Percy W. Rochester, L. D. Ross, L. B.
Hart, J. F. McElroy and C. G. Heifner,
whom some of the older men derisively
dubbed the "kid committee." The "kids."
however, did the work, and the fact that
their party organ, the Ttltgraph, was a
weak ally in the tight was a subject of fre
quent comment among leading Democrats.
But a full week after the election was
safely orer and the victory won, the Tele
graph pranceu out with a great flourish of
trumpets, and after remarking that the
battle had not been one of "rival spouters
at ward meetings" or of "linesse and sharp
practice between party committees," pro
ceeded to claim for itself most of the glory,
All tbea* thing, (»pouter», committees, etc.)
are the inseparable adjuncts of every campaign;
some ol then are necessary evils which ap
parently cannot be shaken otf. The contest in
this city was of a different sort. It began two
years ago, when the Telegraph made a stand
against ring rule and open alliance with vice,
and its party took up the issue. • • • All
that was needed was to guard against whole
sale frauds on election day. I'hat was the sole
important work of the managers of the cam
In short, the election had been carried
by the Telegraph, and the committee and
the workers were mere excrescences of
the campaign—"necessary evils." In the
same editorial the Telegraph demanded
that the members of all Republican
boards and commissions should resign at
once and clear the way for the Democratic
office-seekers. The inference was easy
that the Telegraph was after the spoils,
and the editorial was a plain notice to the
committeemen that they had no business
to make any suggestions as to the distri
bution of the cake and candy.
The Democratic campaign committee
was not particularly pleased by these ut
terances, and when Mayor J. T. Ronald
paid no attention whatever to the commit
tee's recommendations for office, the feel
ing of pain in the breasts of the faithful
The final issue between the Telegraph
and the committee came over the appoint
ment of city comptroller. The Telegraph
insisted that J. M. Carson was the man.
The committee on the other hand, urged
with all the strength in its power the
appointment of L. D. Ross. He was the
only committeeman who was a candidate
for any place; and he was put
forward as t representative of the
young men who had led the
fight from beginning to end. But J. T.
Ronald is talked of as a candidate for con
gress in 1894. Whether or not he really
has that ambition, the fact remains that
he was unwilling to antagonize the Tele
graph. the only paper in the city likely to
give him enthusiastic support, and so he
threw the young Democracy's candidate
far o ntside of the breastworks. The com
mittee and Mr. Ross lie bleeding without,
while the Telegraph is helping the mayor
carve the 'possum.
But the fight isn't over yet.
THE DEATH OF BBiEIHAN CARET.

brakeman who was killed by a freight
train at Oilman Wednesday afternoon, ar
rived in the city at 6:30 o'clock last even
ing in charge of Deputy Coroner Greene,
and were taken to Bonney & Stewart's un
J. B. Carey, the brother of the dead
man, viewed the remains at the morgue
last evening, and expressed his intention
of taking the body back to his old home
at Danville, 111. The parents are both
livine. although aged. The father is a
Methodist minister, and has always de
sired that the family lot in the cemetery
near the homestead should be the final
resting place of all his children. J. B.
Carey expects to go East this evening on
the 10:50 train over the Northern Pacific.
The deceased had lived in the Northwest
about six years, first at Fortland, and
lately at Seattle. He was a thorough rail
road man, and worked on several of the
large systems, notably the Wabash, Den
ver & Rio Grande and Union Pacific. His
popularity among the railroad men of
Seattle is evinced by the fact that he was
chosen master of the Seattle lodge of the
Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen.
Owing to the fact that the remains will be
shipped East, the lodge will not hold a
special meeting, but at the next regular
assembly resolutions will be passed and
sent to the wife and parents. Mrs. Carey
was noticed of the death of her husband
by wire yesterday.

In the vegetable kingdom, the sap or rital
fluid rises from the roots to the trunk and
branches, producing leaf and flower. So in
the human family, the change is as great, for
the blood, if not in good condition, must
