The Seaford left Dieppe under a bright

4 o'clock she run Into a dense fog. What
fol'oned is clearly told by Craig A. Marsh,
a well-known New York lawyer:
"I had been sitling near tbe rail on tin

before the collision 1 went below vtith a

greater than sometimes when a Jersey
ferry boat bumps against the New York
dock. I hurrledi on deck and found the side
of the ship crushed ip. There was a wedge

that there was no danger. We soon noticed,
however, that she -was getting lower in

Section 88, Revised Statutes, says: "Tbe
President solely shall appoint from time

Library of Congress."
BEFORE THE PRESIDENT.
It has been ascertained beyond reason
able doubt that tbe preliminary report pf
Expert Myers has been placed before tbe
President. Tills is evidenced by the fact
that tho pav -rolls of the library have been
Btarted nnew with tbe beginning of the
present fiscal jear, and one of the assist
ant librarians has been designated bj the
Treasury to attend to them and tbe prepa
ration of th9 pay vouchers of the employes.
Mr. Mjcrs found, upon beginning his ex
amination, an almost total absence of svs
temalic bookkeeping, and the resulting
tangle of accounts was almost such as to
defy unraveling. Such has been the strain
involved in the attempt to straighten out
the tangle that Expert Mvers, his work
accomplished as far as possible, lias suc
cumbed to nervous prostration, and is now
at Asbury Park on sick leave, endeavoring
It is alleged tliat Librarian Spofford lias
without authority ot law been In thehabitot
charging and receiving fees for making a
search through the cop) right archives in an
swer to queries for information. These
ore called "search fees." In amount
for tho last four years they have been
averaging from $150 to 260 a month,
and at no time lias there been any ac
counting to the Treasury for them, so
far as Mr. Ml era can discover.
FIFTY CENTS AN HOUR.
Mr. Spofford says that he charged at the
rate of fifty rents an hour, but It was Im-
possible for btm to tell, so the assistants
say, how long the search would take un
til urter It bad been made, n hilctlieamount
of tbe fee was always fixed In adv ance.
As has been prcvlouslj published, while
Mr. Spofford's affairs were being straight
ened out tbe Treasury Department rerused
to nilvauce further money to the Congres
sional Library, and Mr. Spofrord paid its
expenses "out of bis ow u pocket," as"hc
expressed it, having drawn some $4,800
of bis iersonal f u nils to liquidate a month's
The report of Mr Myers is raid to fbiiw
that during the period of more than twenty
years, during which fcorch fees have
been collected, there Is no record, eltaer
in the Treasury or Mr. Spofford's account
books that a dollar of this sum found its
way to the Treasury, which was Its proper
destination, whether collected legally or
illegally. Mr. Spofford does not know, and
there is no way of finding out, bow many
such "fcarca fees" have been received,
nor how much tbey have amounted to for
even tbe last jear. They, like his copy
right fees, have been Jotted down In an
informal manner, with nothing to dis
tinguish them from other moneys received.
Civil Service Extended.
The President to-day issued an order ex
tending the civil Bervice rules to include all

In both cases the till alleged that some
time ago Mr. rtigh visited him and noti
fied him of the proposed formation of the
company named above for the purpose
of purchasing a tract of beach. The
stock was to be placed in the bands of
three trustees- A purchaser was to have
tbe privilege of withdrawing from the
company or pool at any time he saw fit,
provided he gave six months' notice.
On these understandings Mr. Addison
bought $2,500 worth, ot stock and Mr.
Larcombe purchased $2,000.
Both purchasers of stuck later decided
to redeem their money, and, It is held,
Mr. Tage gave a promissory note for tbe
amount in each instance. The notes were
protested, however, and the respective
petitioners were compelled to take them
up. A subsequent meeting with Page re
sulted in further demands for tbe repur
chase of the stock, and he (Page) then In
formed tbem that he was unable to do so.
Tbe petitioners agreed to treat the. origi
nal contract as void.
Since, then the beach property has been
encumbered to secure bonds of the value
of $60,000, It Is claimed, besides there is
a float log indebtedness of $33,000. Mr.
Waggaman, by bis controlling power In

1ITJIIKYING UP SHIPS.
Navy Department Anxious to Get
-Vow One in Jservlce.
Measures were taken to-day by Acting
Secretary McAdoo, of the Navy Depart
ment, to place in service within a very
short time, the six composite gunboats now
under construction at Newport News, Va.,
and also the cruiser Boston and the old
corvette Adams, now at Mare iEland, Cal.
A conference ot the bureau chiefs com
posing th board on construction was held
in Mr. McAdoo's office this morning, and
plans for hurrying up the work ot pre
paring these veelsfor sea were discussed.
Tho feeling ot uneasiness respecting tbe
safety of American citizens in China and
tbi likelihood ot revolutionary trouble in
South and Central America are the rea
sons that actuated Mr. McAdoo in his de
sire to place these vessels In commission
Whether any new information has been
discovered leading to tbe belief that affairs
in South America and Central America may
furnish more than the unusual quota of
revolutionary trouble cannot be ascer
tained, but it is probable that tbis govern
ment has been made to understand taat
hostilities are imminent in some of tbe Fuuth
A telegram was sent last night to the
commandant of tbe 31a re PdandNavy Yard
a-king how soon the Boston could be
commi'sioncd, and an answer received
tbls morning says that all repairs to the
cruiser have been completed , and that she
can go to sea immediately after a dock
trial to test her machinery. The Adams
is also nearly ready for service and the
remaining work necessary to put ber in
sea-going condition will be hurried.
