A FORLORN" HOPE.
John C. Calhoun, a painter of this city.
has entered a civil suit for $5,000 damages
against certain members of tho Journeymen
House-painters' assembly,Knights of Labor.
The cause for action is an alleged conspiracy
on the part of the defendants whicb,through
boycotting and other means, resulted in the
ruin and destruction of tbo plaintiffs busi
Washington-, May 22. The speaker laid
before tho house a communication from the
first comptroller of the treasury, stating that
there is a deficiency in the appropriation for
the fees of the United States jurors and wit
nesses for the year 1883, and prior year. Re
ferred, On motion of Mr. Welbourne, of Texas,
the senate bill was passed for tho extending
for two years of the time within which the
St. Louis and San Francisco railway com
pany to complete its road through the
Cherokee and Chickasaw Indian reserva
tions. Mr. Reagan, or Texas, from the committee
on commerce, repotted back the inter-state
commerce bill favorable. Referred to the
committee of the whole.
A few private bills were passed, after
which the house went into committee of the
whole for general debate on the Dunn free
Mr. Dunn, of Arkansas, submitted an
argument in support of tbo bill which would
repeal a restrictive lien which worked a
great injury to the people of tbo country.
It had been reacting most disastrously to
the general public irood, and especially tn
the shipping of tho United States engaged
in the foreign carrying trade. Citizens of
the United States had passed out of com
potion because they, of all nations, were do
med by their own laws tho privilege of
purchasing ships whero they could buy
tbem cheapest, and having them registered
as vessels of their own country, wbilo
wooden tailing ships led them in carrying
on the trade of the world, and these ships
could be built cheaper in tbe United States
than elsewhere. Vo took and steadily
maintained a leading position in tho world's
carrying trade but in tbo year 1850 England
commenced to build iron and steel steam
ships, and as fast as they wero built and
equipped the commrce of the world was
transferred to them because of their speed
and supposed safety. But there was one
hopo left to us for further effort at main
taining our position and interesest in tbe
carrying trade and that was to do what all
other countries did, repeal out antiquated
navigation laws and allaw our people to
buy iron and steel steamers whero wo could
get them as cheaply as our foreign com
petitors and register them as vsc els of the
United States. He passed tbo policy which
nations bad entorcd upon of granting
bounties to steamship companies and which
he characterized as a game of national
poker. France gae some millions and
Germany saw thai and went some millions
better. Italy had to leave the game and the
United States was asked to raise both France
The contest which had been entered into
by the nations would bring to universal
bankruptcy the taxpayers of tho nation.
There would bo a bounty gatherer (.trapped
on the back of every taxpayer. Such a pol
icy must fail.
Mr. Dingly, of Maine, deprecated such a
ratio calculated in the policy of the govern
ment as was contemplated in tbe pending
bill. The policy which it was proposed to
overthrow had bm adopted by tbe found
ers of the government and had continued for
a hundred yaars without criticism until
very recently. To pass this bill would be
to discriminate unjustly against the ship
building interest, and should the Morrison
tariff bill be passed, the onlr complete man
ufactured pruduct which would bo placed
on the free list would be a fully equipped
vessel, ninety per cent, of which" wauld be
labor. If a fully equipped British vessel
should be admitted to register under our
laws, then from that hour the ship building
industry was doomed and owners of our
ship yards and the many thousands of skilled
workmen employed by'them would be irre
trievably driven into what wero already
It was an appreciation of this fact which
had led 100,000 from one end of the country
to the other to remonstrate against the pas
tag of such a bill as this. The bill should
be entitled a bill to close American -ship
yards and provide for the construction here
after in British yards of whatever vessels
may be needed for tbe American merchant
marine. The trouble in competing on the
sea with Great Britain did not arise from
tbe first cost of the vessel. A vessel built
on tho Clyde was but 10 or 12 percent
cheaper than that built in America which,
dktrfbuted over the lire of an iron hj, was
a small consideration. The great difference
arose in the cost of sailing the Teetal, grow
ing entirely out of the higher wages and bet
ter food demanded in American vessels. A
free ship policy was an invention not only
to buy foreign ships, but to sail under a
British register after they were bought.
Such a policy would 'serve to extinguish
the commendable end indispensably patriotic
instinct which led Americans to look upon
American built and registered shins as reo-
reeesting the power, the ambition, wealth.
Licet iff", prosperity and civilisation ot the
CaHaa BUM. uwutrr aemoBMntea
retain a maritimo supremacy unless she
built her own ships. To rely upon Great
BritianforourTessels wauld bo to destroy
our foreign trade and our means of naval
defense. Tho eyes of the cauntry were
turned to tho defenseless condition of our
navy. A navy was but the offspring of a
great merchant marine, built in home ship
yards. Navies rose and fell with the mer
chant marine, and the policy which the
United States should follow was to give
even- possible aid and encouragement to the
establishment of great ship yards.
Mr. Bomeis, of Ohio, confined his remarks
in opposition to the bill to a consideration
of the injury which it would work upon tbo
ship building industry on the northern lakes.
Mr. Buchanan, ot New Jersey, opposed
the bill. He did not believe the spirit of
patriotism would be fostered if the American
Aug floated over English built ships. That
might do for gentlemen on the other side,
but as for bim, give him an Amrrican built
ship with an American master, manned by
American seamen, .floating the American
flag over an American cargo. (Applause
on the Republican tide.)

ST. LOUIS SENSATION.
The Fourth Day's Trial of the Max
well Case Closes the Prosecution-Defense
St. Loins, May 22. The prosecution in
the Maxwell case is nearing the end of the
list of the witnesses, tho evidence of whom
they think will convict tho defendant of
murder in the first degree, and it is probable
that they will close thir side of the case to
day. J. T. Ryan, superintendent of tbe morgue
to which Prcller'o dead body was taken, was
the first witness this moming. Ho described
the trunk and ibetxnct position of the body
in it. When bn saw it tbu body was very
badly swollen mid almost black from decom
position. Tho only tl thing on the body
was a pair of drawer?, marked "W. II.
Brooks." There were superficial cuts skin
deep on tbo bresut, ind on tbo imide of tho
trunk lid ivas u pieco" of pspcr bearing the
words: "Sa perish all traitors to tho great
cause." Tbo witness bad the liver and lungs
removed from tho bod v and taken to a chem
ist whero an examination of them took place.
Ho had the body embalmed, which reduced
tho swcllinc and discoloration. Tho witnes
had seen tiie body exhumed and thought
tbat it wu3 in an excellent condition consid
orine tbo length of limo it had been in
terred. The cross-examination developed tho fact
that the witness, when the body bad first
been brought to tho morgue, had it marked
"whito man" to distinguish it from tho sur
rounding corpses of negroes.
Several other witnesses were examined this
moming, but gave no new testimony.
Dr. Kins testified that he had chemically
examined tbe lungs and viscera which were
brought to him from tho morgue, which
were said to bo those of Freller, and had
found in tbem tbo presence of chloroform.
Witness described tbe process of the test for
chloroform. He stated that ho had experi
mented on various animals by killing tbem
with tho drug, and upon examining their
lungs found their condition to be almost
precisely similar to those submitted to him
by tbe superintendent of the morgue.
Wisehoscn, an expert, testified that letters
from tbo prisoner to Froller, and Mr. War
ren, of Worcester, Mass., and tho words on
a slip of paper found on tbo lid of the trunk
reading "So perish all traitors to tho great
cause, were written by tne same nana.
Tho Bad Apaches.
Tccson, May 22. A Mexican just ar-
rired reports tbat the Indians attacked Juan
Kellers Mountain Springs ranch, eighteen
miles southeast of Tucson, this morning and
carried offtwo Mexican boys. Tho father
and mother escaped by hiding in a neich
boring gulch. It is now believed the In
dians aro heading for the San Pedro river to
induce the Peacok Indians to join tbem.
Tbe trail taken by them leads through a
thickly settled region which has not been
raided since the early whito settlement of
Grave fears are entertained for defenceless

2ew York, May 22. A special from
Tombstone, Ariz, says tho renegade Apaches

A Sensible Man
Buffalo, May 22. General Master
Workman Towdorly and General Secretary
Turner, of tho Knights of Labor, arrived
in this city this morning en route to Cleve
land, and left again at 12:30 p. m. Mr.
Fowderly stated that one of tbe chief sub
lets to bo discussed at tbo forthcoming
general meeting will be tbo extension of tbo
general executive board. Tho organization
is growing so rapidly tbat the prcnt execu
tive board is not numerically sufficient to
Croperly look after one state, and its mem
ership must bo increased. Thero wero the
same number of members on tbo board
(five) at the present time with an organiza
tion of nearly 1,000.000 members, as there
wero when tho membership was only 10,000,
On the subjects of strikes and boycotts,
which will also be considered, Mr. l'owderly
expresed himself as strongly opposed to
conflicts of any kind between labor and
capital and hopd that measures will bo
taken to regulate such matters.
Kansas City, May 22. Martin Irons,
ol District Assembly 101, was interviewed
at a hotel in this city by a Journal reporter
Mr. Irons denied that he fled from Seds.Ua.
He said be bad not been hiding here, having
registered his namo at tho hotel. He as
serted hi wai opposed to tbe inauguration
of the Missouri 1'a.cific strike; bis plan was
to boycott tbe business, but was overruled
by tbe other members and then bad nothing
to do but carry out orders as chairman of
the board. He raid an effort had since been
published to make bim a scapegrace for
others, who led tbe strike.
Mr. Irons says he has received offers to go
on lecture teurs and thinks of doing to; he
must work and prebablv cannot go back to
the railruad. Tbe people, he thought, might
go to seo him, but thought he might not
make a good lecturer.

tee upon tbe arrival of iu members. Tbe

jury investigating tbe disaster resulting from
the collapse of the Lathrop school building,
the court house. Haar's overall factory, and
Smith & Motlatt's spice mills, during the
recent hurricane, have returned a verdict.
V hile they do not bold anyone directly re
sponsible for tho attending loss of life, the
jurors find none of the buildings in question
were as strongly built as they should have
been for their purpose. The jury express
tho hope tbat tbe calamity will prove a
warning in the rapid upbuilding of the city,
and trust otherbuildincs. present and future.
will use all care and precaution in the direc
tion of safe buildings. Tne report com
mends to tho city authorities a rigid and
thorough svstem of inspection ef allbuild
Incs, public and private, either completed or
in course of erection, it may De taia nere
that good results from this experience are
expected and general in the city. Where
heretofore much of the building has been
done in lime mortar, tho demand for cement
mortar is now almost universal. Other pre
cautionary measures are also manifest.

the legislative independence of Ireland

to fight to sustain Gladstone's will, if neces
sity demanded it."
Adjutant General Moran said: "Yes,
there is truth in tho report. In a few
weeks we could have 50.000 volunteers who
would fight for Ireland."

to brigado commanders to report directly to

The books and records ol tbe First division
are to bo turned over to tbo adjutant gen
eral of the state.
This practically disbands the division and
indicates that for some time tho vacancy
will not be filled. The staff officers havo
all tendered their resignations.
The staff called on General Shaler today

very firm tones expresses their extreme re
spect and estimation and belief tbat he wili

done to aid the fishing industry.
Ottawa, Ont,May22. The government
has received the official report of Captain
Scott, of Lansdowne, of tho seizure of the
Adams. It confirms the previous advices
received by telegraph. Tbo fact appears
that the vessel, evea if it bo proved tbat she
was buying bait, cannot under the existing
law, be held answerable. The law provid
ing for the seizure of foreign vessels for cer
tain offences is so worded that the buying of
bait is not an offence under it. l be seizure
or the Adams seems to have caused the gov
ernment to realize the weak points ot tbe
law. A bill amending the law hat been
hurried through tbe house or commons,
having passed its third reading jesteaday.
It will probably pass the senate and become
a law in a week.
Tokosto, May 22. Referring to the re
port that the American fishing schooner
Augusta Herrick had sailed from Boston for
the fishing grounds, armed with cannon and
determined to resist should any Canadian
vessel attempt to seize her, tho Globe tayt
this may prove a very serious matter. The
United States eovemment neglected Its dutv
when it allowed tho vessel to arm in ono of
its ports in which no vessel honestly pursu
ing a legitimate business required such arm
ament. If permission was obtained from the
government its responsibility is all the
greater. Should this vessel attempt a cruise
and offer resistance when a British or Cana
dian cruiser, duly commissioned, attempts
to seize it in Canadian waters, on a charge
of having acted illegally, it may be treated
as a pirate. To allow its vessels to go forth
armed to tresspass upon a neighbor's terri
tory is unworthy of a great country and
of a free people. Canada will not be de
terred by any danger ot possible collision
and possible consequences from asserting its
rights of enforcing its laws.
Portand, Me., May 17. Tb6 proprietors
of the schooner Ella M. Dougherty, under

New York, May 22. The Post has the
following Washington special:
The state department is actively engaged
in negotiations to protect the interests of
American fishermen. There has as yet been
no official report received of the seizures
and while the negotiations are in tbe present
stage the administration cannot properly
make public the correspondence which it
has had with the British minister here and
with our minister to England. By an official
letter to Secretary Bayard which follows it
will show ho has the interests of tho fisher
mon at heart.
Senator Frye, of Maine, recently ad
dressed to the secretary of state a letter, en
closing tbo dispatch to bim from the presi
dent of the American Fishery union, al
ready published, and presenting tbe urgency
fer immediate action. Secretary Bayard
sent tbe following reply (unofficial):
Department of State,
Washington, May 22. J
Hon. Wm. I'. Frye, United States Senator.
Dear Sir: Before your note of today
was received a telegram of similar purport
in relation to the refusal to allow the Ameri
can schooners Anapolis and Julia to pur
chase herring for smoking at Digby had
been received and steps had been taken by
me to ascertain all facts. Requests have
been made to tbe British minister to call to
account the collector at Digby for what I
consider a gross breach of the commessial
rights of the United States by tbe late rep
rehensible action of Canadian officials in re
lation to American fishing vessels hat oc
curred in remote locations without facilities
for postal communication and consequently
there has been delay, regretable. but un
avoidable, in receiving consulor reports.
But your assumption that this department
is giving the matter such consideration as its
importance demands, will, I believe, be fully
sustained when the proper time arrives for
tbe publication of iu action. I trust I am
conscious of every duty as an official charged
with execution of delicate and important
functions, and that tbe interests and honor
of my country and the rights of its citizens
will not be found to have suffered at my
hands. Very respectfully,
T. F. Batakd.
A gentleman who has talked with Secre
tary Bayard upon this subject within a day
or "two says he looks at the question as an
important one and not from a political
standpoint and says there is no politics in
it; tbat tbe action of tbe department cannot
be made public but he can assure any con
gressional friends that everything possible
is being done to protect their interests.
Secretary Bayard deprecates any attempt
on the part of the fishermen to coerce the
Canadian gavernment by force of arms, and
said that everr step in that direction would
weaken tbe United States and strengthen

mand of the Torkial forces on the frontier
of Greece, who engaged in tho skirmish yes
terdav, inquired of the Greek commander
whv Bis troops were fighting. Tho latter
replied that it was because the Turks made
the first attack. Assurances were exchanged
between the commandants that flehtinir will
net be resumed. They will also exchange
protocols showing that the firing was the re
sult of mutual misunderstanding. Tbe de
parture of Greek troops to tbe front has been
suspended. It is expected that a decree
ordering the demobilization of the Greek
army will be issued by the general tonight.
Tbe Greeks claim that during the frontier
engagements yesterday thev captured two
positions from the Turks, 20,000 cartridges
and three prisoners. The commander of tbe
Turkuh troops explains that the firing by
bis men was due to a mistake and has given
assurance that the Turkish intentions are
There it now entire dissatisfaction and
firing everywhere along tbe frontier.
London, May 22. Members of the gov
ernment state that election writs are being
prepared in anticipation of the dissolution
of parliament after the necessary vote is
taken on the home rule bill.
Advices have been received hero statin::
that another fight bat taken place between
Turkish and Greek troops. A large force
ot Turkish seldisrs attacked a force of
Greeks at a point between Turnaco and
Theteot. It is not known which side was
Matbew Arnold has written a letter to tbe
Times in which he says tbe awakening mind
of the country demands not that we give a
eeBBfaia tffrliament to Ireland, but that wu
seriouslv address ourselves to the task of
giving her separate laws and institutions.
Lord Salisbury had an arbitrary temper. As
a borne politic! be is at great a ini, fortune
to the country as Lord Randolph Churcbill'c
Intriguings. ine eslaniisnmenl ot a seperate
parliament would be dangerous and unnec
essary Lord Salisbury talks on this sub
ject of coercion and says let us refuso t
seperate parliament with firmness; but with
equal firmness let us insist upon
the condition which at once justifies this re
fusal. Lord Hartinpton has a good temper;
is no intriguer. Goshen has made local
government a study. I hopo they may be
trusted to make our refusal firmly anu'our
engagements emphatically passionate. Sup
porters of Gladstone are political dissenter?
and radical workmen of great towns. I
agree with Laboucbre tbat aristocracies are
not the best guide in politics, but 1 havo too
much respect for his undoubted lucidity to
believe him capable of really thinking dis
senters and radicals aro better guides, or
even as good, on the Irish question. They
would have eauallv applauded Crorn
well's dealinsrs with Ireland, or William III
in their time, as they do Gladstone's propos
als on tbe mlnaot toe wnoie country.
At the liberal union meeting today hun
dreds of distinguished Liberals were present.
The meeting was organized in secret, but re
porters obtained admission.
Lord Hart ine ton said tho meeting had
been called, not for tbo purposo of disap
proving of tbo policy of the government,
but with a view of forming an organization
This, he said, it was necessary to form in op
position to the present L.beral association,
in order to create strength and efficiency t
a large section ol the Liberal party, which
was opposed to granting a separato parlia
ment to Ireland. Tho foundation of a new
organization was more necessary because
a vote o the home rulo bill was being urged
and overv means used by tho government
to bring pressure to bear
on tho members of tbo house.
Tbo fight over tbo bill he said would so be
transferred, from parliament to the con
stituency and enemies must bo prepared at
least to hold their own and must not bo con
tent on making a bare protest.
The Duke of Argyle delivered along
oration. He vigorously condemed tbo
scheme proposed by Mr. Gladstone which,
be declared, should be rejected, as Lord
Hartington bad said tbo standard of revolt
against tyranny of personal favoritcism.
Customs duties of Roumaniahave been in
creased SO per cent.
A conference of the Liberal Union held
here today was largely attended. Lord
Hartington was present and was loudly
cheered. Among other distinguished per
sons present were the Duke of Argyle, Duke
of Westminster, Baron Rothschild, Lord
Northbrook Goschen and Ryland.
Berlin, May 22. A rumor is current
that all tbe German army officers traveling
in France havo been recalled and tbat stall
and other officers havo been refused the
usual summer furloughs.
Prince William, as soon as ho learned of
the tragic death of Mrs. Pondlcton, ordered
to bo conveyed to the American minister, a
soon as he recovered from the first shock of
bis great grief, an official tender of imperial
condolence. Mr. Pendleton has recovered
somewhat from prostration cansed by the
news of his terriblo bereavement, lie i
today more composed, but remains unde
cided concerning bis future movements. It
is thought, however, by his most intimate
personal friends that he will not be able to
go to New York
