Senator Carlisle Writes a
A Political Question Pointedly
He Does Not Believe in Government

Coming to the Coast on Offi
Associated Press Dispatches.l
Washington, May 31.—Senator Car
lisle has written a letter to B. F. Howard,
of Tuskegee, Alabama, in response to a
request for his views upon the bill pro
viding for a system of government ware
houses for farm products, upon which
products treasury notes only shall be
The senator says : In the beginning,
the statement of Howard and associates
that they are in favor of "equal justice
to all, and special favors to none," em
bodies a sound Democratic doctrine, and
if it had been strictly adhered to in
congress for the past twenty-five years,
the evils of which the farmers and
others justly complain would have been
averted, and the whole country would
now be prosperous and contented. The
farmers have been taxed so long for the
benefit of other classes, and seen so
much legislation for the aggrandizement
of corporations and syndicates, that their
patience is exhausted, and they are now
demanding that the very policy which
they have heretofore announced as unjust
and ruinous shall be applied to them, or
rather part of them, for no scheme yet
suggested would operate alike upon all
farmers. But no evil can be corrected
by increasing its magnitude and extend
ing the scope of its operations. There is
but one effectual remedy for the evil
which undoubtedly exists, and that is,
to reverse the policy which produced it.
The senator, after rehearsing the fea
tures of the proposed sub-treasury plan,
and noting the fact that the farmers
themselves will pay more than their
fair share of the cost of erecting the
warehouses, and that the officers con
nected with them will be partisans of
the administration in power, says : Not
more than one-third of the 2,Boocounties
in the United .States, if that many, pro
duce and sell annually more than $500,
--000 worth of agricultural products, and
therefore under the bill not more than
one-third of them could avail themselves
of this plan. At the very outset, there
fore, it is a plan to compel the
government to issue and dis
tribute money for the benefit of
the people living in the rich and
productive counties, at the expense of
the poorer ones. Moreover, it is a plan
to enable unscrupulous speculators to
take advantage of the farmers' pecuniary
necessities and extoit exorbitant prices
for food from the people. In the great
majority of cases the farmer would never
be able to redeem his deposited pro
ducts, but be forced to lose the remain
ing 20 per cent of their value, or sell his
warehouse receipts for whatever he can
get for them, which would be very little ;
for it must be remembered that after he
gets his warehouse receipts he has a re
maining interest of only 20 per cent.,less
the charges for interest, storage, etc.,
and this is all he can dispose of. He
will find the time rapidly approaching
when he must have money to redeem
his products or sell his small remaining
interest, or allow them to be sold at
public auction by the government, and
this will be the golden opportunity of
speculators, whose agents will swarm all
over the country, ready to take receipts
from embarrassed owners for a merely
Senator Carlisle argued at length to
show that the plan proposed would pro
duce an annual expansion and contrac
tion of the currency, which would result
in absolutely destroying the market
upon which the farmer must depend for
the sale of his crops. No such facilities
as this project will afford for controlling
the markets for purely speculative pur
poses, says he, have ever existed in this
or any other country, and no more per
fect system for the oppression of the
poor could be devised.
In conclusion, Senator Carlisle says
that even if it could be
conclusively shown that this or
any similar scheme would be
liecuniarily beneficial to any particu
ar class of people, he would still be un
alterably opposed to it, because in his
opinion it would be another wide and
dangerous departure from the principles
upon which our political institutions are
founded. It would in fact be the longest
step yet taken in time of peace toward
the consolidation of power in the federal
government and the subjection of the
private affairs of the people to the con
trol of central and irresponsible author
Charges Against Officers of the Depart
ment of Arizona.
New York, May 81.—A Washington
special says: June 10th a court-martial
will convene at Tucson, Ariz., for the
trial of Captain Alonzo E. Miltimore,
assistant quartermaster, on charges of
defaulting government funds. Late de
velopments resulted in an order from
the war department for the trial of three
other officers, Major Joseph W. Wham
and Albert S. Lowar, of the pay depart
ment, and Amos S. Kimball, chief quar
termaster of the department of Arizona.
The quartermasters are charged with
fraud in haying rented a room in their
personal quarters to the government for
a sum nearly equal to the amount paid
for the whole house, thus getting the
rent practically free and their regular
allowance for quarters in addition. The
charges against Miltimore are various
fraudulent transactions, such as carry
ing his wife on the payroll as clerk; his
servant as janitor; renting his property
fraudulently to the government. Kim
ball will be charged with neglect of duty
in not discovering or reporting these
flagrant cases of fraud under his admin
The Senate Finance Committee Making
Washington, May 81. —The Republi

finance resumed consideration of the
tariff bill this morning, and remained
steadily at work until 1:45; then a re

Changes from the house bill are said to
have been comparatively unimportant.
Before the committee adjourned it was
said tlie metal schedule was practically
completed, and some of the members
express the opinion that they will be
able to report the bill within a week.
The Great Headsman Going to Resign
After Visiting the Coast.
Washington, May 31.—First Assistant
Postmaster General Clarkson leaves to
morrow for an extended official tour of
the far west. He will at once proceed to
Seattle, state of Washington; from that
point diverging tours will be made
through Washington and Oregon. Later
he will visit San Francisco and other
leading cities and towns of California.
The main object of this tour is to obtain
a thorough knowledge of the postal needs
for the Pacific slope. Clarkson is of the
opinion that the far west is entitled to
better facilities, and believes a western
man acquainted with the peculiarities
and rapidity of western development, is
best able to judge its postal needs. He
will make a close inspection of the ser
vice at all the important centers, and on
his return, in about a month or six
weeks, will make such recommendations
as the situation demands. On his re
turn to Washington, he will tender to
the president his resignation, to take
Two Deaths Result From the Spring
Fort Worth, Tex., May 31. —Up to
noon only two deaths resulted from last
night's fire. The deaths were caused by
the jumping of the men from the win
dows of the Spring Palace, after they
saved many women and children.
Later—The list of casualties at the
Spring Palcae fire last night shows that
two lives were lost and thirty persons in
jured. Inquiries for missing are made,
but the authorities assert that no bodies
are in the ruins.
Philadelphia, May 81.—The mills of
J. and K. Richie, and Thomas A. Wilson,
were burned this afternoon. Two em
ployees were burned to death.
Union and Roberts Islands Doomed to
Stockton, Cal., May 31.—The levee
broke on Union island last night, letting
the water into the middle division of
eight thousand acres. A large force of
men have been working on the cross
levee, but a break occurred on Frank
Bell's place on the middle river. The
break is 108 feet wide, and cannot be
closed. Roberts island, middle division,
is all right so far, but it is feared it can
not be saved when the water rises from
the lower division against the cross
San Francisco Assessments.
San Francisco, May 31. — Assessor
Nealon will formally turn over the per
sonal property books of the county to
the supervisors on Monday, the assess
ment work having been completed. The
total assessments for the year amount
to $66,862,119, of which sum $58,702,251
represents the assessment on personal
property; $1,498,023 assessment on Chi
nese, and $6,102,245 assessment on ship
ping. The increase in valuation for the
present year amounts to $1,937,902.
Will be Moved to Los Angeles.
San Francisco, May 31.—An evening
paper says it is authoritatively an
nounced that the Southern Pacific shops
at Iteming, N. M., are to he moved to
Los Angeles. The change was ordered
by C. P. Huntington, and is made to
save expense. The shops at Deming
cost more to maintain than similar ones
in Los Angeles, as fuel and water have
to be hauled further, and all other ex
penses are proportionately higher. The
change will be made shortly.
Referee's Decision Set Aside.
San Francisco, May 31. —The board of
directors of the California Athletic Club,
in the matter of the four-round contest
between Murphy and Greany on the
night of the Fitzsimmons-MeCarthy
fight, which w r as decided in favor of
Greany by Referee Hogan, have set
aside the referee's decision on the
ground that the affair was merely about
between an amateur and a professional,
and was not for a prize or decision. The
referee was agreed upon between the

Eastern Fruit Markets.
New York, May 31.—The California
fruit market is strong, considering the
quality. Eighteen hundred boxes of
apricots and cherries were sold today,
the price ranging from 40 cents to $1.20
a box. The quality was lower than at
any previous sale for some time. Buyers
refused to invest at the former average
price of $2 a box.
Chicago, May 31. —Porter Bros. & Co.
today sold two carloads of cherries at 20
cents to $1.35 per box. The bulk of the
stock was in very bad order, the fruit
being over ripe and the weather exces

hour this morning fire broke out in Horn

San Francisco, and in less than an hour
a whole square of the section known as
Butchertown, and covered with frame
buildings, was in ashes. Fifteen houses
were burned. The loss is estimated at
between $10,000 and $20,000.
A Plea of Insanity.
Sacramento, May 31. —The motion for
a new trial of Charles Freeman, con

that Freeman was insane. The matter

Montgomery, Ala., May 31. — The
Democratic convention met again this
morning. Balloting commenced with
all the candidates, but there had been
an agreement that the anti-Kolb forces
would support Colonel Thomas G. Jones
for governor. The roll of counties was
commenced. Every vote, not for Kolk,
was cast for Jones. The result was not
announced, as Kolb's friends withdrew
his name and moved that Jones's nomi
nation be made by acclamation. Every
body went wild, and the convention
had to suspend proceedings. Kolb
pledged himself to support the nomina
The platform adopted reaffirms allegi
ance to the principles of the Democratic
party, "as promulgated by Jefferson, de
fended by Jackson and maintained by
Grover Cleveland." It holds that in
terference on the part of the federal
government in the selection of senators
and representatives in congress, is a
usurpation of power unwarranted by
the constitution. Unalterable opposi
tion to the present high tariff is de
clared, and a liberal and thorough sys
tem of public schools is favored. It
further declares that the welfare of the
entire people of the state, without
regard to race or color, depends upon
the continued administration of public
affairs by the Democratic party, which
alone combines the intelligence, experi
ence and virtue necessary to perpetuate
the blessings of a free government
therein; and that the continuation m
power of that party is the highest duty
of all white men.
Northern Pacific Charged With Tapping
Western Union Wires.
Minneapolis, May 31.—The Journal
prints a sensational story effecting
prominent officials in the Northern
Pacific. It charges that on the night of
February 4th the Western Union tele
graph wires were cut two miles east of
Jamestown, North Dakota; that an in
vestigation proves that the work was
done by prominent Northern Pacific
officials and two operators, it ia sup
posed, at the instance of a still higher
official, who it is "claimed, worked the
wire himself in Bismarck. At that
time a great many telegrams, both for
and against the Lousiana lottery project,
were passing over the wires. The opera
tors sidetracked those unfavorable to
the lottery and rushed the others
through. It is charged that they ad
vised friends of the lottery of the con
tents of messages intended for anti-lot
tery people, in advance of their delivery
to those entitled to them. Long peti
tions and lists of names in favor of the
lottery, were, it is said, rushed through
without charge, while protests against
the lottery were delayed. The Western
Union lias made a full investigation of
the charges, obtaining satisfactory proof
of their truth.
The Contract Labor Law Makes the Lead
ers of the Church Uneasy.
New York, May 31.—The leading
lights of the Mormon church are in a
state of anxiety over the question of the
admittance of a thousand or more con
verts who will arrive next week. Elder
Cannon and others had a long confer
ence today witli the contract labor in
spectors, and assured the officials that
no Mormons were imported under con
tract. All came on purely religious
grounds, and no effort was made by the
church to have them come here other
wise. After much talk it was decided
not to detain any, but to take a full
memoranda, and afterward, should in
vestigation disclose any contract case,
the people could be easily reached.
Weather Crop Bulletins.
Sacramento, May 31.—The following
was telegraphed to the chief signal
officer at Washington, D. C, this after
noon by the local officer': The cold

Portland, Ore., May 31. —The follow

CURED BY CUTICURA.
My disease (psoriasis) first broke out on my
left cheek, spreading across my nose, and al
most covering my face. It ran into my eyes,
and the physician was afraid I would lose my
eyesight altogether. It spread all over my
head, and my hair all fell out, until I was
entirel-y bald-headed: it then broke out on my
arms and shoulders, until my arms were just
one sore. It covered my entire body, my face,
heart and shoulders being the worst. The white
scabs fell constantly from my head, shoulders
and arms; the skin would thicken and be red
and very Itchy, and would crack and bleed if
scratched. After spending many hundreds of
dollars, I was pronounced incurable. I heard
of the Cuticura Remedies and after using two
bottles Cuticura Resolvent, I could see a
change; and after I had taken four bottles, I
was almost cured; and when I had used six bot
tles of Cuticura Resolvent and one box of
Cuticura and one cake of Cuticura Soap, I
was cured of the dreadful disease from which I
had suffered for five years. I thought the dis
ease would leave a very deep scar, but the Cuti
cura Remedies cured it without any scars. I
cannot express with a pen what I suffered be
fore using the Cuticura Remedies. They
saved my life, and I feel it my duty to
recommend them. My hair is restored as good
as ever, and so is my eyesight. I know of
