was not carried out, Only two shots were
fired one of a 200-pound shell and the
other of 600 pounds, ohargod, with No. 1
dynamite, and each was discharged at a
point the site of a vessel's deck inarkod by

A Plea for tbe Publication of tbe
Of the War ol the Kalwlllon Made by Dee.

WisnixoTcw, Jan. 23. Becroiury Whit
ney yesterday sent a letter to Senator Cam
eron, chairman of tbe Committee on Naval
Affairs, In which he says: ."I have to ac
knowledge the receipt of your letter of the
18th Instant enclosing resolutions ot tho
headquarters commandory of the Military
Ordor of the Loyal Legion of the United
States, of Dos Moines, la., In favor of the
publication of the naval records of the war
of the Rebellion, and desiring to be In
formed of my opinion on the subject The
Importance and value of this work aro, in
my opinion, Lot open to question. Tbe de
tailed history of the war is a matter of pro
fessional necessity to the navy. It is the
only war in modern times In which naval
operations, on a great scale, havo been car
ried on. It Is the only war in which rams,
torpedoes, ironclads and steam blockades
have boon employed.
"All thut is known of navul war to-day
dates from tbe war of 1801. We need the
information for building our ships, for
tralulng our officers and for administer
ing the navy department In short, we
need it for every branch of naval ad
ministration If wo want to have an effi
cient navy. Tho work should be done at
once, and prosecuted to speedy completion.
The pupors to be published aro many of
them In private bauds, and every day of
delay adds to tbe probability of their loss or
destruction. It is for this reason that 1
strongly urge Immediate action. The pub
lication of tbe naval rooor is can not be
completed in any reasonable time with tbe
present force of seven clerks and copyists,
and an appropriation of J0.0OO. The amount
asked for by tbe Navy Department falls far
short of that which has been devoted to tbe
army records, but tho department bolloves
that it will be sufficient to prosecute the
"Thowbolo country bus domanded tho
preservation or FarraRUt's old vessel, at an
expenso of (300,000; yet tbe record of Farra
gul's achievements, without which the
Hartford Is only a moauingless relic, Is suf
fered to remain In obscurity for tbe want of
a sufficient appropriation to provide for lu
publication. Tbe compilation of the record
is desired equally by the participants on
both sides in the war, Union aud Confeder
ate, and by people in all sections of the
country, while its Importance to the navy
and tbe Exocutive can not be questioned ;
and for these reasons I earnestly commend
the subject to the favorablo attention ot
Tbe Supreme Court of tho United States
yesterday rendered an opinion In the Im
portant patent case of the Kate Refrigera
ting Company, appellant vs. George Ham
mond & Co., appeal from the Circuit Court
of tbe United States for tbe district of
Massachusetts. By statute of the United
States It ts provided that when a patent Is
taken out in a foreign country and one sub
sequently ts also secured in this country,
the patent shall expire In the United States
with the expiration of the patent In the
foreign country in which It first runs out.
Under the Canadian law patents are granted
for five years with, the privilege of renewal
for two periods of live years each.
Tbe question In this cose was whether tho
lifetime of tbe American patent expired five
years from lis Issuance in Canada or at the
end of fifteen yeara, which is the limit to
which the life of a patent may be extended
In Canada. The Supremo Court through
Justice Match ford holds that the patent In
the United States does not expire for fifteen
years from tho-grantlng of tbe patent; that
is to say, the lifetime of an American patent
first taken out In s foreign country does
not expire until the extreme limit of time
for which an extension of patent may be se
cured In the foreign country. The court,
therefore, reverses the decision of the Cir
cuit Court of Massachusetts and remands
the case to tho lower court, with Instruc
tions to enter a decree In accordance with
the judgment of this oourt The case la re
garded by persons Interested In patents as
one of great Importance. Many electrical
patents are affected by the decision.

The Hostetter Interests In the Pittsburgh

VamlerUilU, Olvlug Them Control ol

PiTTSiii'iuui, Jan. 22. While thero was
considerable talk yesterday an ong brokers
and bankers In regard to the reported pur.
chase of the Uostuttor interests in tho Pitts
burgh & Lake Erie railroad by the Vander
bilts, there was no special flurry of excite
ment on account of the rumor, because the
Vandorblita had been practically in posses
sion of tho road. President Newell and
othor ofllcli'ls of the line exorcise a typical
railroad retlcenco relating to the oubjoct
Herbert Hostetter Is also non-committal.
A prominent broker, who is very close to
tho Interested parties, said : "The report is
true. I know thut the Hostolter Interest In
the Pittsburgh & Lnko Erie railroad was
bought by the Vanderbilts lust VVednosdny.
The consideration la known only to a fow.
This will Increase the power of the Vunder
bilts. although they controlled tho road be
fore, aud after their winning the 'trust'
suits tbo power thoy possessed was ample
enough to be dictatorial. Tho inside rea
sons of the dolil may possibly never be
known. In all probability, though, it was
simply purchnsod as a good Investment"
The best informed authorities in financial
affairs agreed tint it was simply guesswork
to say what the Vanderbilts would or would
not do with tho Pittsburg & Lake Erie as to
any future possible connections.

A Fsltlilris Wlte Mnnlrrs Her Husband
and Sk'pi Out Willi a I'uglllst.
Nkw Yoiik, Jan. 23. A Herald special
from Clio.venuo, Wyoming Tarritory, says:
Calvin Dloodgood was killed at the mining
town ot Bum's Fork, Friday night, by his
faithless wife. Sheriff Uauson, of Uintah,
is on the trail of the woman, who has eloped
with Jack Cushlng, a pugilist from Pitts
burgh, pa. Bloodgood was foreman oi the
big coal mines at Sam's Fork and bis wife
Is a dashing blonde. Cushlng has been
hanging around the mining town and was
made much of by the men. Ho was big and
handsome and qnito a llghtor. Cushlng and
Mrs. Bloodgood eloped on horseback on Fri
day night Dloodgood got a party of miners
together and chased thorn to tbe railroad
station. The husband besought his wife to
return to him and she appeared to waver.
Borne ot tbo party began firing on Cushlng,
who called to the woman to come with him.
Sbe whipped out her revolver and shot her
husband twice. As his friends picked him
up the elopers galloped off. Bloodgood died
in ten minutes. Tbe elopers caught the
eastbound -train, which carried them off
just as tbe furious minors dashed up.
Exalted Over the Immigration Question.
London, Jan. 23. The proposal on the
part of the United States to strengthen tbelr
Immigration laws by drastic enactments has
stirred up a good deal of feeling on the sub
ject horo, Involving criticisms by no means
gentlo or fair. Not only is the matter
wa ched with keen interest in England, but
tbe question is exciting a similar degree of
concern on the continent Not perbaps as
a meauro of retaliation, but as a means of
purifying tho moral atmosphere. It Is sug
gested that the colonies, Canada In particu
lar, have recourse to similar legislation and
thus close the gates against the only classes
who are llkoly to leave the United States
and who do leave that country both tor tbe
country's good and In ordor to keep out of
Jail. The Globe admits that the bill Is a
natural one and perhups Inevitable, but
thinks It will prove to bj exceedingly seri
ous buslnoss for F.urote, and also increases
the probability that the Chinese' question
will bo forced into unexpected develop
ments, rendering the greatest of all social
problems still more difficult of solution,

Londox, Jan. 33. It I staled upon most
excellent authority that the English gov

by the provisions of wbloh European pow
ers are precluded from obtaining or at
tempting to obtain dominance in Samoa
England bus been fully Informed of tbe
views of tbe American government on tbe
matter and is In full accord with the opin
ions bold In Washington. Tba two govern
ment are agreod that tho action of the
agent of Germany la Samoa is opposed to
the letter and spirit of the treaty and also
violates diplomatic etiquette and endangers
tbe good relations so necessary to tho pres
ence of Amor leans and Europeans when
dealing with semi-barbarous nations. DIs
patches bave been sont to Berlin couched in

six weeks at least for tbe war ships Trenton
and Vandalla to make tbe run from this
continent to Samoa. Thus tbe Nlpslo will
be the only vessel representing this govern
ment at those Islands from this tlma until
after tbe 4th of next March. The Trenton
sailed from Panama about a week ago, but
the Vandalla, which sailed from San Fran
cisco Sunday Is a fatter vessel, and will
take a more direct route than tho Trenton,
and will probably reach 8umoa about as
soon as the latter ship.

always gives prompt relief in rettirus of
my old counlulnt.A Ernest A. Ilenler,
Inspector of Public Roads, Parish Ter
ra Bonne, La.
" I consider Ayer' Cherry Pectoral a
most Important remedy
For Home Use.
I have tested its curative power, In my
family, many times during the past
thirty years, and have never known it
to fall. It will relieve tbe most serious
affections of the throat and lungs,
whether in children or adults." Mrs.
E. O. Edgerly, Council Bluffs, Iowu.
"Twenty years ago I wa troubled
with a disease of the lungs. Doctors
afforded me no relief and considered
my case hopeless. I then began to use
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral, anil, before I
bad finished one bottle, found relief. I
continued to take this medicine until a
cure wa effected. I believe that Ayer's
Cherry Pectoral saved mi llfo."
Samuel Griggs, Waukegan, III.
" Six fears ago I contracted a severe .
cold, which settled on my lungs and
soon developed all the alarming syinii
toms of Consumption. I had a cougii,
night sweats, bleeding of the lungs,
pains in chest and sides, and was so
Iirostrated as to be confined to my
led most of the time. After trying
various prescriptions, without benefit,
my physician finally determined to give
me Ayer'a Cherry Pectoral. I took it,
and the effect was magical. I seemed
to rally from the first dose ot this
medicine, and, after using only threo
bottles, am as woll and sound as ever."
