In addition to the appointment of purely

and laws of Maryland, Incumbent upon the
Governor, who has always heretofore been
a Democrat, to appoint a large number of
county officials whose positions are In other
States usually filled by popular election
or by authority of tbecounty commissioners'.
lly reason of the negro majority or great
negro strength in some of the counties of
Maryland, It has been the policy of the
State to concentrate more and more the
government In the bands of the Governor.

In this way several or the treasurers

commissioners, police magistrates and jus
tices of the peace for Baltimore city.
But more Important than all these, politi
cally speaking. Is the Governor's absolute
control, through his appointments, of the
entire election machinery of the Stale.
Not many years ago the election officials
were appointed by the county commis
sioners, but as soon as a county went
Republican the law was changed by the
dominant party of the State until now
all are named by the Governor.

It will not be possible for the Democrats
to reclaim the State in the Immmedlatc

Baltimore, Nov. 8. Bishop Taret in ex
planation of why he decided to remain In
Maryland Instead of going to Washington
as bishop of the new Protestant Episcopal
"No one van knowtbe weeks of agonizing
doubt and uncertainty through which I
passed after It was definitely determined
last May to separate Washington from the
Maryland diocese. Had the choice been
of my own free will and no attempt been
made by others to lnrlucn'omy decision, the
way would have appeared plain to me. But
this was not to be the case.
"Strong pressure was brought to bear
upon me from outside the diocese from
some of themembers'of the house of bishops
whom I numlier among by nearest and
dearest friends to make me feel that my
work lay In Washington. I cannot tell
you all the reasons-I had for finally mak
ing up my mind to remain with Maryland.
"First,-1 believe It was God's proUdence
that called me to be Bishop of Maryland,
and even should the law of the church allow
me at some fufvre time to consider another
field of labor, I could never do so, for my
conscience would not allow me to overrule
what I consider God's providence.
"Second, I feel that I am wedded to the
diocese Of Marylaml. The relation a bishop
sustains to his people has orten been likened
to the marriage tie, and I feel that I ought
not to violate Its sanctity. This might be
true, you say, of Washington also, but the
fact remains that this part Is the old Mary

and warm that they arc giving him a very'
interesting chase, but Just yet all they
know about him Is that be is a slender
blond and that he robbed Johnson M.
Cartwright of $850 at .the Metropolitan
Hotel last evening.
The robbery was effected by exchanging
satchels, one of which contained a pile
of greenbacks, while the other was empty.
The plan was simple and theexecution bold,

halls from Sblloh. North-Carolina.
MET A NICE YOUNG MAN.
About one week ago he left his home
under the pines to visit Baltimore and to
lay In a winter stock of wares, for It was
said at the hotel that Mr. Cartwright runs
a combination store at that place. He
reached Norfolk on Wednesday, and alter
seebw the sights of that city, concluded to
resume his Journey towards Baltimore. He
thought It would b? a good plan to come to
Washington by a steamer. On Thursday
afternoon he engagtl a stateroom on a
Al the n barf, and before going on txiard.
Mr. Cartwright entered into a casual con
ersallon with a very pleasant young man.
The young man started the conversation.
In the larguagc of Mr. Cartwright, "The
young fellow was mighty well up in talk."
He was well posted on every subject that
was introduced, and seemed to Mr. Cart
wrigfil to be thoroughly informed on North
Carolina affairs. Toward the latter part
of the trip It even developed tbat the
stranger had met some of the people
whom Mr. Cartwright knew near Shiloh.
During all this time the man from the.
Tar-heel Slate carried a small hand satchel.
It was a suspicious-looking bag, because It
was not large enough even to hold a shirt.
The slranger never seemed to notice this,
however. On the steamer a game of cards
was proposed, and It is thought that the
stranger then verified his belief that the
peculiar little satchel contained money.
STEERED BY THE STRANGER.
The steamer was detained by n fig ard
did not reach her dock at this city till
i o'clock yesterday afternoon.
Mr. Cartwright stated to his acquaint
ance that, he thought he would stop oer
here for a day before going on to Balti
more. The stranger thought tbat this was
a good Idea. "Do you know a good hotel?"
asked Mr. Cartwright.
"Tes. sir; the Metropolitan, up town. Is
a bang-up hotel."
"Well, if you'll show me where it is, I'll
hang out there for a day."
The two boarded a cable car and entered
the hotel together.
They walked up to the counter nnd
"Harry" presented Mr. Cartwright with
a pen. He entered his name, but in order
to do this be put the little satchel on
the counter, so that it was between him
and his friend. The slranger picked up the
valise and handed 11 to one of the hotel
attaches and received a check. Appa
rently he delivered this check to Mr. Cart
wright, but In reality he did not.
He retained the check and substituted
another, which he gave to Mr. Cartwright.
Then the latter was shown to his room.
Soon the stranger reappeared at the hotel
counter nnd presented a check. It cor
responded to tbc iheck on the little satchel.
The stranger took it, removed its contents,
pocketed the bills, reUiecked the satchel
and walked out. Soon Mr. Cartwright came
down stairs and preseateJ at heck for which
no corresponding one could be found. The
clerk. It Is said, told him that he had given
the little satihel to his friend.
"He's no friend of mine, and I have been
robbed!" exilaimed the North Carolinian.
Then the satchel was again fished out
from the check'-room aud It was found to
be empty. Detectives were at once put on
the scent with this description:
DESCRIPTION OF THE THIEF.
"A maii six feet tall, about thirty-two
years old, light complexion, light mustache,
slim build, bad on dark derby hat, and blue
overcoat." This Is what the officers are
Another version of the transaction Is that
the stranger checked two satchels, tbc
little one and his own, a large one. In
handing the checks to Cartwright he re
tained that for the satchel with the money
and gavo Cartwright the check for the bis
valise. When the big satchel was handed to
Cartwright In response to his call, he cried:
That's not mine!"
It is thought by the Washington detectives
to bo a legitimate robbery, though some
people question this and Insinuate that the
guileless rustle may be a shrewd man, and
that he did not lose any money, anJ that bis
strange friend may be a confederate, and
tbat their sthenic Is to make Ihe hotel re
sponsible. The det'ei lives will, of course,
make inquiry as to the standing of Cartwright.

the Water In the Saturday lluce
Than the Day Hefore or After.
Could I'roe Nothing and There
fore Made No Complaint.
London. Nov. 8. The Fiell will to
morrow publish a fouf.tIuinn statement
from Lord Dunraven relative to the con
test for the America's cup. Lord Dun
raven opens by saying that as so much has
been written aud saidJoosely concerning the
races, andashebasreeelvedsoraany requests
for fuller information, he thinks it due
to tbc yachting and general public and
himself that be make a statement.
He would, he adds, confine himself to
the cause of his withdrawal of the Valkyrie
from the races, namely, overcrowding,
but tbat other matters had been mentioned
in the cup committee's report to the New
York Yacht Club. He relates what oc
curred at the meeting of the committee
held for settling the conditions of the
contest and says be disapproved of the
method of making the load water line
with copper tacks on the deck, instead of
the yacht racing associations' method of
visible marks on stem and stern, but be
made no protest.
INSINUATES BAD FAITH.
A few days lat-r he wrote to Mr. Can
field in regard to this matter and received
a verbal answer that the committee did not
see the object of reconsidering the matter.
Lord Dunraven did not pres themattcr, but
signed the agreement. The following day
the Xlrst race was sailed. Continuing be
"I am of the opinion tLat the Defender
did not 6all on her measured load water
line length In the race."
He remarks that nobody Interested in the
Defender lived on her or her tender, the
Uattle Palmer, but much material, the
crew's cots, etc., were transferred back
ward and forward from the Defender to
the Haute Palmer aud vice versa. Those
on board the Valkyrie were well able to
observe the Defender when they were along
side of her In the Erie basin.
After her first trial with the Vigilant
when the Defender went to the Erie Basin
to be measured, on September 6, it was
obvious to eeybody on board the City of
Bridgeport, the Valkyrie's tender, that
she was floating materially higher than
on a former occasion. This, of course, was
The Hattie Palmer was alongside the
Defender all night. Her crew were at work
from dark until 1 o'clock In the morning.
Early Saturday those aboard the City of
Bridgeport noticed that the Defender was
visibly deeper In the water than when she
DEFENDER SAT DEErER.
When he put Mr. Henderson aboard at
9 o'clock Lord Dnnr.-neii was perfectly
certain that she was four inches deeper
than she wa? when she was measured.
He was reluctant to formally complain, as
it was impossible for him to verify his
belief. Anyhow, nothing could have been
done U race, but wten Mr. Fish
went on board the Valkyrie Lord Dunrai en
told him the whole cace and asserted bis
belief that the Defender was eallirg fully
a fool beyond her proper length.
He asked Mr. Tish to Induce the com
mittee to send a member aboard of each
boat immediately after the race and have
both measured forthwith, aud ir that
was Impossible to have the member stay
in charge until the yachts were measured.
He nlso asked that the load-water line be
marked visibly externally. No action
was taken that evening beyond ordering
that the boats be remeasured and marked
on the following day. Nobody was placed
The Defender lay all night with the
Hattie Palmer alongside or her. The
result was that Sunday's remeasunng
obviously afforded no proof that either
or both yachts had not exceeded their
measured lengths in Saturday's race.
The statement adheres to placing the
blame on the Defender, but Lord Dunraven
says that assuming the ValkyTie to have
been in the wrong, he fails to see what
rule was broken.
He argues this whilenccepting the verdict
of the regatta committee as final and,
of course, as having been given in good
faith. He adds, however, that lie is bound
to say that he thinks their judgment
was founded on a mistaken estimate of
the circutiistnnces; and relative courses
and positions of the vessels in respect
to the direction of the wind and the start

Dr.Hickllng ordered a preparation intended
to prevent a return of the whisky thirst.
He left his lodgings at 3 o'clock, and
after stopping in the drug store and pur
chasing a cigar, sauntered up the Avenue
carrying a valise. Earlier in the after
noon he had sent his trunk to the steamer
by Knox's express.

HE FIRED TWO SHOTS.
At 6:03 two pistol shots crashed out and
created consternation among the passen
gers who were loitering around tho saloon
and engaged Jn arranging their traps In
their rooms. Following close upon tbe
shots a groan sounded from the room.
Several persons tried the door but it was
locked. Then an officertof the ship at
tempted to break it in with bis fist, but
Tbe news of tbe shots and the groan
spread quickly through the ship, and Chief
Engineer John Trower and Pol iceman King,
of the Fourth precinct, reached the spot
almost at the same time. Trower brought
an ax and tbe heavy door was crushed in.
A bloody, ghastly sight was presented.
Coleman sat In a chair, his head drooping
forward on his breast. He was gasping and
bis eyes were rolling from side to side. A
pistol was In his right hand, which hung
limply at bis side. A convulsive quiver
went through the body of the man, and he
was dead. He had fired two shots from a
32-calibcr revolver through his heart A
crimson stream gushed from the man's
breast, and soaking through his white shirt
trickled to the floor. Policeman King took
tho weapon from the dead man's hand.
On entering the stateroom ha placed his
overcoat on the back of the chair In which
he died, and removing bis hat. coat and
vest, lay down on the cot.cn for a few
minutes. His mind was probably full of
thoughts of suicide. Then he arose, and
opening his valise, took from it the pistol,
and seating himself in the chair, fired.
Close upon the heels of Policeman King
came Policemen Schneider and Peck, of
the Fourth. The mattress was removed
from the cot and the dead body placed
upon it. it was then borne to the waiting-
room and while Policeman Schneider
stood guard over the corpse. Policeman
Peck called the wagon of No. 4 and the
coroner was notified. The remains were
taken to Lee's and the effects of the dead
man were locked up at No. 4.
