tEFECIAT. TZXXCnjLX TO TUB DISPATCH.!
Washtsjgtok, October 9. To-day's
events in the Interior Department, as re
gards the Pension Bureau, will certainly fur
nish a topic for another protest from Private
Daliell, and perhaps even for a "confiden
tial" communication from Corporal Tanner.
The famous $1 a month order of the late
Commissioner was to-day abrogated, and
that, too, in language of an extremely
It has been often charged that Mr. Bussey,
the assistant and close friend of Secretary
Noble, entertained a by no means friendly
feeling for the Corporal. If such is really
the case, he has certainly taken good advan
tage of bis opportunities, and his action to
day will be very apt to create quite a com
motion. THE CASE TS POIXT.
In the claim of John H. Lunderrille, late
private Company K, Tenth Vermont Vol
unteers, on appeal from the Commissioner
of Pensions, Assistant Secretary Bussey to
day rendered a decision in which he reviews
and rescinds the ''order" which was issued
by the Commissioner April 25, 1889, and
which abolished the rating of 2 per month
and established for the same the sum of 54
per month in all cases, dating from March
27,1889. The Assistant Secretary, 'in his
review jf the aforesaid order, addressing the
It appears that pending the report on this
appeal the chief of the law division of yonr
office referred the case to the medical referee
for an opinion as to whether, under the present
PEACIICE OF THE BUBEAU
of Pensions, the claimant is entitled to any ad
Tance of tbe rate (2) for chronic diarrhea.
In response to this request the medical referee
in a slip dated May 8, 18S9, says: "In accordance
with an order from the Commissioner he is en
titled to 51 from March 27, 1SS9.'"
I find by reference to a communication, dated
2d instant, and addressed by the Acting Com
missioner to the Secretary of the Interior, that
the order referred to in the aforesaid slip is as
"Aran. 25, 18S9. In all caseshereapension
able disability is f onnd the rate allowed shall
not be less than Si per month, to date from and
including March 27, 1&S9.
"Jasies Tanneb, Commissioner."

The foregoing order of the Commissioner
seems to De the only ground upon which the

chronic diarrhea) is to be based. Hut, the
question arises, is the order itself consistent
with the established precedents of the depart

whereby a pensionable rating having been con

legitimately modified by increasing or other

SECRETARY TRAGI'S PIAXS.
He Would fepend 88,000,000 la Enlarging
the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
Washtngtoj.-, October 8. It is said
that among tbe recommendations to be made
by Secretary Tracy in his annual report is
one that a plan formulated by the Board of
Officers upon navy yard sites to largely in
crease and improve the Brooklyn Navy
Yard, be carried into effect. The principal
features of this plan are the construction of
a fresh, water basin, in which the new
vessels of the navy may lie without fonling
their bottoms, anJ thus always be ready for
service, and the construction of several ad
ditional dry docks.
The machine shops and foundry are also
to be largely extended. The total estimated
expense of the additions is $8,000,000, the
outlay to be made at the rate of say half
amiliion a year.
. THEI WANT AXOTIIER TRIAL.
The Fast Cruiser Baltimore Can Exceed the
Washington, October 9. Mr. William
Cramp, of the Philadelphia chip-building
firm, had a conference with Secretary Tracy
to-day concerning a proposed second trial
of the cruiser Baltimore. At the first trial
the engine failed to develop the horse
power required in the contract by a very
small amount and it is said the contractors
desire another trial on that point alone, the
speed of the vessel having been satisfactory.
The Messrs. Cramp believe that on the
next attempt they can show an excess over
the contract horse-power. Ho conclusion
has yet been reached by theSecretary.

PROBLEMS HARD TO S0LT.
The Inter-Stato Commission's Difficulty In
Arranging Freight Classification,
rEFXCIAl. TELEQBAM TO TUB DISrATCn.1
Washington, October 9. There seems
to be little ground for the alarm expressed
in some Western newspapers that the Inter
State Commerce Commission are about to
interfere with the Inter-State Committee of
Bailroad Managers, who are now struggling
with the question of freight classification,
because the latter has not made haste enough
in preparing a general schedule. Commis
sioner Morrison, who, in Judge Cooley's ab
sence, speaks for the'eommission, said:
"There is no intention on our part to dis
turb the committee as long as it seems dis
posed to do its -work. This work of arrang
ing a freight classification, which shall be
fair to all parties is not to be accomplished
in a day. The difficulties are infinite. Take
oil, for an example. The question at once
arises, 'Where are you going to carry it any
how?' T.t is shipped on some roads in tanks,
on others in barrels. If you send it South
in tanks the empty tanks perhaps bring
back a load of cottonseed oil; if you send it
in tanks to Boston, there's nothing to bring
back. How will you classify such, a commod
ity bo that all the carriers will feel them
selves equally fairly treated?"

' THE LAST CHAPTER
In a Wheat Speculation That Resulted In a
Loss of 810,000,000 How
Senator Fair bared a
' Bank From Bain.
rsracMx teleg'bjlh TO TOS DISFATCB.1
San Feancisco, October 9. James G.
Fair resigned the Presidency and Directory
of the Nevada Bank to-dav. bringing to an
end the last chapter of the wheat deal of
1887, which cost the bonanza crowd several
million dollars. When the retirement of Mr.
Fair became known to the street, specula
tions as tq. the reasons for the change
soon ran rampant Several theories were
advanced, but without any satisfaction to
those who held them. The statement which
found most general acceptance was that a
settlement had been effected by Messrs.
Mackay and the Floods, and that the part
nership, which was again entered into at
the time of the collapse of the said
wheat deal, when Mr. Fair came1 to the as
sistance of his old time mining partner, waa
at an end.
The bank was "in troubled waters when
Fair took charge of its affairs. In the early
part of 1887, daring the absence of John W.
Mackay, and owing to the inability of
James Q. Flood, who was then seriously 111,
to attend to its affairs, the bank got seri
ously involved in a disastrous wheat
speculation through Cashier George Bran
der's poor judgment, which nearly wrecked
the fortunes of its stockholders. The wheat
market smashed and numerous failures fol
lowed. Beal estate was low and everything
looked dismal. When matters were at their
worst Senator Fair came to the rescne.
Well provided with funds which he had just
realized from the sale of the South Pacific
Coast Bailroad, he came to the relief of his
old-time partners and placed his spare
millions at their disposal He also devoted
his personal attention to the rehabilitation
of the bank's affairs, assuming the position
of president, which he has since filled.
The losses incurred by tbe different wheat
factions are estimated at from $8,000,000 to
$10,000,000. which included a million in
Government bonds belonging to Miss Jennie
Flood, and the private resources of the firm
were trenched on heavily to make them
good. Business has run along smoothly.
On tbe death of James G. Flood his son
took his place, and now assumes the Presi
dency of the Nevada Bank, it being under
stood that the loans advanced by Fair have

Bome, N. Y., October 9. The village of
Oneida, Madison county, was thrown into a
state of excitement to-day over an attempt
to kill by poison Bev. Father James Kelly,
of that place. This morning Father Kelly,
of St Patrick's Church, was celebrating
mass and partook of about two teaspoon
t nls of wine, when he was at once seized
with great pains and a burning sensation
at the stomach. He immediately retired
from the altar, and making known his situ
ation, sent to a drugstore for an antidote.
An emetic had the desired effect of reliev
ing his stomach, but none too soon. Dr.
Bailey was then summoned.
Father Kelly was deathly sick when con
veyed to his home, but his condition is re
garded as much beeter. The case is a
peculiar one. Father Kelly is well known
in Oneida and it is not known that he has an
enemy in the world.

The final preparations have been made
for the long-heralded visit of the Czar to

for impressing upon his mind the vastness
of the Teutonic power.
Beblin, October 9. Generals Werder
and Kaltenbornskcbau will attend the Czar
during his stay in the German capital. Ar
rangements have been made for the most

route from the Lehrter Bailroad station
across the TJbkoenigaplatz and as far as the

and beyond this by infantry up to.the gates
of the Russian Embassy.
The vast military preparations for the
Czar's welcome and for his diversion dqring
his stay are on a scale of magnificence with
out a precedent even when foreign poten
tates have been entertained heretofore, and
it is hinted in certain quarters that this ex
traordinary array of bayonets is intended
quite as much as an impressive reminder of
the strength of the German as for an inno
cent spectacle entertainment
PLENTY OP MIXITABTr.
General Werder will meet the Czar at
Kiel, and accompany him to Berlin. The
First Begiment of guards, together with a
company ot Alexander's regiment, will act
as a body-guard to the Czar on the route
from Kiel to Berlin. After arriving at the
capital his escort will consist of four squad
rons of cavalry, two riding in front of the
imperial carriage and two behind.
The most stringent precautions have been
taken to prevent the possibility of the ap
proach to his Majesty's person. Beside
the troops which will be stretched out in
solid columns on each side of tbe route,
police officials in citizen's clothes will be
thickly scattered along the edge of the
crowds' with instructions to watch for any
suspicious movement on the part of
individuals or groups of people.
These precautions are taken, it is under
stood, at the express wish of the Czar him
self, whose secret police have warned him
that the greatest care should be taken dur
ing his stay in Berlin to insure his safety.
NO SUSPECTS ALLOWED.

officials are making a thorough canvass of

IlirEOYEMENTS IN LONDON.
Now Council Will Make Decided
Changes In tho Streets.
London, October 9. The county Coun

improvements in London streets. Tbe
Strand is 'to be widened its entire length.
Holywell street is to be improved
out of existence, and a new street
will be opened from the Strand to
Holborn at a'cosf of a million and a half
sterling. This, it is announced, is only the
beginning of a vast scheme for beautifying
the great London thoroughfares to which
the Councils already stand committed.
The old fogyism which has stood in the
way of progress in this direction for centuries
has now given way to an enlightened spirit
of improvement and it is likely that the
vigor and enterprise manifested in many
directions by the county Councils, will, iu
a few years, make of the great highways of
London something more than crooked, nar
row and ugly cow paths.

TESTING DYNAMITE GUNS.
The Trial of tho Armament of the New
Philadelphia, October 9. TBe official
test of the pneumatic guns of the cruiser
Vesuvius took place on the Delaware river
to-day. The vessel was towed ont
into the stream from her docks
at Cramp's shipyard and anchored.
She was in charge of a board appointed by
the Secretary of the Navy, consisting of
Commander C. F. Goodrich, Liententnt
Seaton Schroeder and Lieutenant Bradley
A. FiBke. Lieutenant Schroeder, who will
command the boat when in commission,
gave the word and the test was begun.
This consisted of the firing of five shots
from each of the three guns in ten minutes
and throwing a shell weighing 480 pounds
a distance ot one mile. At the first test the
required number of shots were fired
with satisfactory results, the shots
striking the water near the end of the
mpa.A ml u-lthln n fl.ront r,Hn. f
few yards. Then came an interval of
silence, which was broken by the discharge
of half a dozen more shots which struck the
water in about the same spot as the others.
The first missiles thrown from the guns
were dummy shells made of wood, and the
second were regular dynamite cartridges
filled with sand.

The Knights Templar were tendered a
grand reception at the White House last
night The mansion was grandly decor

manderies enjoyed themselves during the
day sightseeing and serenading.
rSPXCUI. TXLXOBJLK TO THE DIBPATCH.J
Washington, October 9. Not in recent
years, If ever, has such a reception been seen
at the White House as that of the Knights
Templar this evening. Practically all the
Knights of the city, with their lady guests,
were in the line, and at their retiring, nearly
11 o'clock, after the throng has been filing
through rapidly for more than two hours!
the line stretched far down the long walk to
the west gate, along Pennsylvania avenue to
Seventeenth street, and for some distance
down the latter street
Yet it is the most orderly crowd ever seen
at a great popular reception, requiring little
or nothing of the usual management by
ushers and police. The commanderies did
'not attempt to keep together, and those from
Pennsylvania, like the others, were scattered
here and there in the interminable line.
Nearly all of the
KNIGHTS AND LADIES OI" ALLEGHENY
and surrounding counties were in line, and
almost without exception passed through
the Blue Boom, shook hands with the Presi
dent, took a glance at the Cabinet Ministers
and their families, indulged in the glories
of a promenade in the magnificent Bast
Boom, and passed out to the south gardens,
dazzlingly brilliant with colored eleotrio
lights and incessant fireworks, and melodi
ous with the music of the world-famous
Bows of large Chinese lanterns were
strung on wires 'beneath the trees on each
side of the grounds. Other rows of lan
terns encircled clumps of plants and foliage
here and there, while at various points well
adapted to enhance the effect were circles of
small colored glass globes lighted by elec
tricity. Within doors the decorations were
also varied from the ordinary disnlav of
potted plants and cnt flowers. Palms and
other plants were used, but were relieved
MASONIC PLOBAL DESIGNS.
Over the doorway leading from the main
corridor to the East Boom two American
flags were draped, while on the opposite
side, and iaeing those who entered, two
other large national flags hung in folds,
and on them the words
: WELCOME, SIB KNIGHTa
were placed in red flowers. In the center
of the room, on top of a mass of potted
plants, was a hauberkjnj-edand, white im
mortelles,, Supported by-two "crossed sword
worked in 'the same flowers.-Jjver .the, man
tels on each side of the room "were a Mal
tese cross, a shield and two other insignia of
the Templars' order, made of red immor
telles. Following are the names of the ladies of
the Allegheny commanderies present at the

the visiting Knights had even a more beau

to so thoroughly enjoy it that many of them
scarcely knew how to contain themselves
within dignified bounds. The departments,
the White House and the Capitol were
thronged all day. Biyer steamers were
crowded to their utmost capacity, most of
them making Mt Vernon their destination.
Commanderies paraded with their bands,
calling upon and serenading other com
manderies. Knights of the'Mystic Shrine, an order
within the Masons and yet not of them,
paraded in long lines, wearing tbe inevitable
red Turkish fez, and exhibiting great pro
