Muff In the courtyard bin riff Palnur was
up In ln offl.v. and was lnvitta diwn
to sie the distruilloii of the stuff, but
Be refused to .utile, saving, "I have no
business down there."
From the amiable sheriff's lone It was
plain to see that he wascunslderablv miffed
at the raiding of Hie dives.
George Heath, of the gambling firm, was
also an interested speiiatiir nt the con
flagration, but he dci lined to say any
thing exivpt tu mutter that "It was hard
luik to burn suih good furniture."
STUFF THAT WAS UUR.NEU.
The stuff burned consisted of mahog

check racks and various other stuff that
goes to compkte the outfit of a first class
camh'ing house. Ovir G.000 clips were
destroyed, about half of which were Ivorj
and cost w hen new about 40 ci nts each.
As Uetectlve Ualdnin said, it was a
tliame to destrov so much valuable ma
terial, but the men who wlildeil the axes
and applied the torch vrvte troublisl with
no such sentimental thoughts, and vw-nt
to work with a will to do the work, which,
it is thought by all, will drive the gamblers
from the shores of Virginia.

In Alexandria this morning bv a Times
reporter. Alter tilling the slurirr who
he was. Hie reporter asked Mr. Palmer
if he had a statenunt to in ike us to why
the raid was not Intrusted to him The
thirlff then licgan a tirade against The
Times, and among oil er things said-
"The Times nevir prints auvthing about
me' right, and I have nothing to saj."
When asked If lie did not cons'der the
raid an excellent thing, the sheriff nrused
to rip, and bid the reporter good morn
ing. It is understood Hut the tin riff feels
very hard towards Mr. Baldwin lietanse he
was not tipped off to the raid, but the
reason he was not is because Mr. Baldwin
feared to tip any one off, and especially
the distinguished sheriff of Alexandria
The general lei ling among the citizens
Bf Alexandria Is that the efforts of The
Times have at last borne fruit, and that
this raid will start a new era in Hie his
tory of the county. Lawlessness will now
glv e place to onler and good govemmmt.
Mr. Marbury, the special prosecuting at
torney, is well pleased with the work of Mr.
Baldwin, and says that he inn rids to do his
fluty in Hie matter, as he considers It. That
will mean that he will endeavor to get
the highest fine and the longest imprison
ment he can for the offenders who were
"I Intend now," he said, "to finish up
the work Mr. Baldwin has already lieguu.
Had I more time I could have placed a
number of Informations Inforc the grand
Jury and have obtained indictments.
"I have been thinking I would have the
Jilajers Indicted, but I have reconsidered
I and shall release them on their personal
recogUzance. They areall w rtt known, and
I shall have no difficulty in reaching tlieni
and bringing them here to testify against
the Heaths. The Times has been roasting
Gov. O'Ferrall pretty severely, and on the
face of It it seems Just, but he has been
at work trjing to drive the gamblers out
of the count) eversincelt was first broached
to him. He has had one of Hie hardest
things ho ever had to do in this ef rort."
Chief Detective Uildwm had the follow
ing to say reganling the elforts of the
Governor to drive nut the gamblers:
"He has tried faithful!) tu get them out,
but It has been impossible. The gamblers
claimed to own the constables and sheriffs.
Wh) , only Hie night I made the raid, when
on in vva) up to the boat,. I asked a man
who seemed to be In charge, If there was
any danger of m) being arrested ovir there,
and he replied:
"No, the sheriff has been fixed and he
won't touch nnv of the Heaths." This,
giupled with the statement of George
eath that Palmer sold Hum out. is pretty
conclusive evidence, that something was
wrong. Ever) body at tho resort seemed to
feel perfeitly safe, and I may say that
nono of them apprehended any trouble.
"I was called to Richmond bv Hie gov
ernor when the Washington Board of
Trade went down Uiere, and ever since
that timo, I have been planning to get the
best or the Alexandria county gamblers.
On several occasions raids have been
planned, but in some way the thing leaked
out and we were disappointed by the places
"When The Times were sending men over
to Jackson City to look out for the dives, I
was there and saw the men often. Some
times they would expose a game that was
Tunning, and which I was watching, and It
would close up for a few days, thus throw
ing me oft. It has done some great work

Detective Baldwin, when the witnesses

Hen HUKM.-I1 mid HenderBoii, of Jl
HmoU, the Otlicr Axiilruuts.
Represent nUve William A. Stone, of
Fennsylvanii, has arrived In the city
and made arangements to open hesdquar
tcrs at Willartls Hotel, where the cam
paign of ex-Re pressentatlvc McDowell
for the clerkship or the house will be
Mr. McDowell is very popular and will
make a etrong, and It is believed success
ful fight for the position.
With the Speaker-hip contest decided
in advance, the chler interest In the caucus
called for November 30 centers in the
clerkship. Prior to the adjournment of
fongresss a combination Is said to have
been formed by which the elective offices
w ere equitably distributed, and a sulflclcnt
number of votes pledged from the various
States interested to carry the slate through
at the proper time.
The existence of this combination Is
conclusively indicated by the announce
ment that Representative Hooker, of
New Tork. w ill shortl) come to Washing
ton to oin the campaign lor doorkeeper
for Mr. W. J. Glenn, or Cuba, N. i'., and
that the McDon ell and Glenn headquarters
will be In the same rooms.
This indlcab-s beyond a doubt the New
York and Pennsylvania have formed a
combination rr mutual support. The
friends of McDowell and Glenn are also
favorably Inclined to tho aspirations of
Ben Russell, ex-speaker of the Missouri
House of Delegates, for sergcant-at-arnis.
THE WEAK POINT.
If this combination holds, Pennsylvania,
New York and Missouri will vote for an
Ohio man for postmastir, nnd will yield
to Kansas' expressed wish for the chap
laincy. The weak points about the candi
dacies or all the men. except McDowell,
is that the) are not cx-mimbcrs.
Joe Cannon will be here shortly to open
htadqunners for ex-Representative Hen
derson, who in Illinois candidate for
the clerkship. McDowell, however, seems
to have the Inside track, if the New Tork
Pennsvlvanla arrangement lasts. -"Mr.
Quay and Mr. Piatt look favorably on it.
Representative Stone supports Senator
Quay In his plins for improving navigable
streams and constructing ship canals. In
speaking on thtssubject, hesaid:
"IncreasiKl duties on certain articles are
necessary for the protectloa of American
manufacturers, but a higher tariff is not a
panacea for all our wants. Increased du
ties will be necessary In order to provide
revenue for the ordinary expenses of the
Government, and to overcome the deficit,
which Is mounting upward every month.
But for Internal improvements jve need
something more something that will pro
vide an immense sam of money at once and
permit the prosecution of a stupendous
system of Gov ernment work Immediately.
"My plan 1b simply to tnke most of the
money now paid out in pensions and devote
It to slack water Improvements in our
risers, dredging our harbors and building
ship canals. Don't get alarmed; I do not
propose to roo the old soldier, nor iaue
away a single dollar of pensions. There
are paid out In pensions atthe present-ap-proxiniately
$135,000,000 a jear. I
would pay this amount, or a large propor
Hon of it, say $100,000,000, in 2 per cent
bonds, to run five or seven years and be re
deemable at the will of the Government,
I would give the pensioner the amount of
his pension in those bonds whenTila quar
terly draw lng was in such a sum as could be
met by the bonds, none of which would be
under. $10. For instance, if an old sol
dier's pension amounted to $36, I would
pay $30 of It In the 2 per cent bonds and
the balance In cash.
ISSUE A CERTIFICATE.
"I believe that such a scheme would
be practicable, especially If the bonds
were given the same standing as other
United States securities, and could be used
by national banks as the basis of circula
tion. I would not give the bonds direct
to the pensioner, but issue him a certificate
Which would call for a bond. These certifi
cates would be readily cashed at tbc banks,
and I have no doubt would command a
small premium. I would provide a sink
ing fund of not less Hi an $10,000,000 a year
for the eventual redemption of these bonds.
As the years went on the amount of pensions
would gradually grow less, and In time
the sinking fund would be ample to meet
the bond Issue. I would treat pensions as
a war"debt for another generation to nay.
Z "I believe that $100,000,000 cooler be
expended Judiciously 'every -year in Internal
improvements. x wouiu ravor letting xne
.work to private" Contractors, and thus
give an Immense army of men Immediate
employment, and giving an impetus to va
rious industries, "the" product of which
would be used In river, and harbor Im
provement. I would 'dredge the Delaware
and make It navigable .for an sea going
vessels. T would favor the building of
a ship canal from New York harbor to the
Delaware. The Ohio river should be made

EDMUNDS LAW APPLIES
Decision by the Court of Appeals
Has Been fiendered.
Property lllglitu Are Affected In Sev
eral Ways Opinion Wa Written,
b) Cblcf Justice Alvey.
Chief Justice Alvcy, or the Court nf Ap;
peals, writing for the court this morning
handed down an opinion confirming the
position previously taken that the Edmunds
antlvolygatny law applies In I bis district.
The opinion Is In the case of Charles H-,
Chase and Mary Jackson, alias White, who
were convicted of adultery last June In
Judge Cole's court.
Incy wire sentenced to a year and a day
In prison at Albany. ,
The court of apiieals finds that the conten
tions of couusel that tbc law pa Intended
to apply to Utah, and not bare at all, are
not sustained. . "
Judge Alvey states that It It agreed that
the decision shall also feltla the cane of
of ItiuIs A. Dounn, the grocer, at Four
teenth and U streets, in which the facts
are substantially Uie same-
The law when first applied caused a
frreal increase in the Issue of marriage
It Js sold Its application will reach
manv persons much higher In station than
any who have yet taken alarm,
A brisk movement In some direction to
avoid its penalty is expected b some per
sons. The decision rendered to-day also touches
property rights In several ways. Particu
larly the assignment of the wire's interest
In real estate is arrected.
In the case decided Judge Cole alloweel
the husband to testify as lo the marriage.
and the decision sustains that action.
Judse Alvcy, in concluding, sajs that
the crimes covered by the law are no les.1
heinous here than In the Territories, or
other Jurisdiction of the Federal Govern
ment, and Just as much ought to be suii
presseel. The law was approved March 3, 18S7.

SCHEMING AT NEW YORK
Curious Heport Tlint tlie Mont For
midable Expedition Yet Fitted Out
Hum Been Organized In a Re?ort for
Exiled Cubun-j, to Bo Commanded by
Member of the National Guard.
New- York, Nov. 4 A dispatch from Ha
vana, via Key West, says:
From Insurgent sources comes the report
of the capture of Fort Auras, a Spanish
outpost, near Clenfuegoes, by Capt. Cas-telln0s,-on
The Spanish force In the fort surrendered
artir a short siege. The insurgents se
cured thirty improved rifles and more
than 15,000 rounds of ammunition,
Capt.-Castrllunos liberated all prisoners
.and hurried tue.fort.
Fort Xa Viaga, one league from Cama
Juanl, In the province of Santa Clara, sur
rendered during the week and a majority
of the troops defending It went over to
the insurgents fejrlng, as the rebels say,
that they would be court-tnartiale-l and
shot on account of their defeat should they
present- themselves without arms to the
military commander at Camajuanl.
FORT AND HOUSES BURNED.
In La Vlgla tbc Insurgent chier Vlelal se
cured tblrt) ..wo rifles and 1.JS5 cartridges.
This fort was also burned.
From Remedies, insurgent advices say
that In the suburb or Sahanncvu 100 bouses
were burned, stores sacked and tobacco
There Is a braneloew movement on feot
In this (New York) City, to help along the
Cubans In their elfort tu secure freedom
from tbe hated Spanish foe. This latest
is perhaps the most formidable of any fili
bustering expedition tbat has been planned
on American soil.
The men who have made up their minds
to embark for Cuba in search ot glory and
adventure are nearly all officers of tbe
National Guard of New Jersey. Their
plans were formulated in the Cafe Restam
curt, in Nassau street. This cafe is a re
sort for Cubans. It is not the first expe
dition planned within its doors.
This time, though. the movement is
not started by the Cubans, as the filibus
ters are all 'Americans, with the excep
tion of one, who Is an ex officer In tbe Eng
lish army. They are all men of high stand
ing socially, and all bold good positions In
They are willing to face all the expense
of arming and equipping themselves by a
contribution ot $200 each.
MEN CUBA NEEDS.
They are lieutenants of the various Na
tional Guard Regiments of New Jersey.
They understand all about the handling
of small bodies of troops, the erection of
field telegraphs, and the use of flag, torch,
lantern, and heliograph signals.
These are Just the kind or men the Cubans
need. The present expedition will probably
start within" a fortnight. If tbe United
States Government does not interfere.
Some of the filibusters say they are going
to get practical experience In the field,
so that promotion may be more rapid when
they return to this country.
Madrid, Nov. 4. The Heraldo published
a report of an interview with Gen. Martinez
Campos in which he expresses himself as
not disposed to agree to the lndejiendcnce
of Cuba, but Is of the opinion that the re
forms adopted there should be applied In a
much more liberal manner thau hltberto.

Mr. Liu is to Succeed Him. -

CritlclKiii of Htm.
The latest rumor, that the Chinese min
ister, Mr. Yaug Yu, is shortly to be relieved
by Mr, Liu, who has uisiuarged fur some
years, until reevntly, the orfice uf Taouil
of Shanghai, is nut creelited.
It is the custom of the Chinese govern
ment to give their diplomatic representa
tives a turec-)ears' term at the various
capitals to which they are accredited.
Air. Yaug Yu has been in Washington
scarcely two ears, aud, so far as can be
learned, he has performed his duties to
the satisfaction of the l'ekln foreign office.
For this reason it is doubted if he will be
relieved before the expiration of bis term.
He is nowju Spain, lo which country he Is
accredited as well as Uie United States.
In puisuauce of the usual custom or the
Chinese government, which awards all Its
officials who are desert ing of advancement
with a steady promotion from the lower to
the high grades In the service, Mr. Liu is
now expecting a step upward.
The office of Taotai, which he has f died
at Shanghai, is one which places him in
charge of all matters relating to foreign
Intercourse, and one also In which the
duties are a combination of Judicial and
administrative as well as diplomatic.
He lias seen some diplomatic service, as
he filled the post, some years ago, of sec
retary of legation at London. He is now
at Fekin, where he was recalled two
months ago, awaiting the Instructions of
his official superiors.
