Secretary Wisdom Will Not Interfere With
the Present Importation of Mexican Ores
Coasress Bltmt Decide the Matter.
"Washdtgtox, Oct 19. Secretory Win
dom last night made public the long-expected
lead ore decision, in which he snp
tained the present classification, that ad
mitted argentiferous lead ores imported
rom Mexico free of duty.
The Secretary, after reciting the uni
form decisions and practice of the depart
ment with respect to the classification of
these ores since 1880, says: "The dutiable
or non-dutiable ciarscter of thess ores
was tho subject of an investiga
tion by the Judiciary Committee of
the Senate, who reported on July
5, 18SS, in effect, that ores of
the character mentioned, namely: ores
containing more lead in weight than
either gold and silver, but more gold or
silver than lead in value are not in the
opinion of the committee subject to duty
under existing law. If tho question pre
sented were a new one and had not been
the subject of administrative construc
tion fortified by the opinion of the Ju
diciary Committee of the Senate. I would
feel at liberty to give greater considera
tion to the" weighty arguments which
have been adduced, tending to estab
lish the dutiable character of all
ores of this description containing
lead in appreciable or considerable quan
tity, the more so if it had been satisfac
torily demonstrated fiat these ores are
not known nor entitled to be known com
mercially as ores of silver. It not bavin;
been so demonstrated, and it being the
fact that sinco the original decision of
1880 on this subject Congress has re-enacted
the pre-existiag provisions of the
tariff with regard to lead ores and silver
ores respectively, I do not feel at liberty
to set aside the existing classification. It
must be assumed that the rulings and
practicD of the department were known
to Congress when it passed the tariff act
"It must be held that the designation of
lead ore and silver ore in the tariff in the
absence of legislative definition was that
of existing decisions that Congress in
tended the classification should turn on
the question of value and not of quantity.
It is therefore considered that this depart
ment is without authority to change the
-departmental and Congressional defini
tion of these ores, and in faith of which
large business interests have been estab
lished. That Congress did not intend to impose
duty upon the lead which might be found
in the different ores but only upon such
ores as were then recognized under the
decisions of the department as lead ores,
is gathered from the other parts of the
tariff acts, for in paragraph 1SG 'copper
is made dutiable whenever found in ore,
and in paragraph 191 'nickel is also made
dutiablo whenever fcund in ore or other
crude forms. In those case? it is clearly
the metal contained in the ore which is
made subject to duty, and had the same
form of expression been uned in reference
to lead that metal would have been duti
able at tho rate prescribed whenever
found in ore.
"According to well settled rules of
statutory construction this difference in
tho form of expression must be deemed to
indicate a d fferent legislative intent and
to limit the authority of the department
to impose duty in such cases to the ore
itself under exl-sting rules of classifica
tion. I consider, therefore, that the pres
ent classification has attained the force
of Congressional enactment, and that
a. change, if desired, mut bo
sought in Congressional intervention.
If, howovor, ores of this description
are imported, which are distinctly known
as lead ores in the legal and commercial
sense, they would as such be dutiable. It
is deemed advisable in this connection to
enjoin upon customs office: s a strict en
forcement of the regulations of this de
partment intended to correct abuses which
formerly existed in the methods if entry,
sampling and classification of ores of the

Scurvy Way of Treating an Expectant
Parkersboro. W. Va., Oct. 19. A long
anticipatod wedding in high Catholic
circles here had a sensational set-back
which may result in the death of
the bride expectant. G. A. Barger, a
voung man of wealth and social
standing in Wheeling, and Miss Mat
tie Ross, equally high in position in
this city, were to have been mar
ried yesterday. The bans had been duly
proclaimed from the altar of the Catholic
Church, and all preparations bad been
made for the wedding. The bride pro
vided herself with an elaborate trousseau
and the Cathedral had been decorated
for the ceremony. The young man's
business affairs, it was known,
would kocp him absent until the last
moment, so nothing was thought of his
non-arrival. The carriages with the wed
ding nany started for the young lady's
home, the groom being expected at the
altar. The church was thrown open and
the bridal party was filing in when the
father of the bride was handed a dis
patch and told to read it before
passing into the church. It was
from Barger and said: "I have
changed my mind and transferred my
affection to another. To-day I have mar
ried a lady of this citj." Miss Ross
fainted and was with difficulty taken back
to her home. She now lies critically ilL
The greatest indignation is felt at the oc
currence and a warm reception awaits
Barger when he shows himself.

New York, Oct. 19. Judga Martin sen

Harry," yesterday. Carlton shot and
killed Policeman James Brennan. He
was pale and nervous. When asked what
he had to say why judgment should not
be pronounced, Carlton, gripping the bar
-with his white, cold hand, said in a
studied speech thai ho was not guilty of
murder in the first degree. Judge Martin
said the ury acted justly and properly,
and sentenced Carlton to be banged on
Thursday, December 5. Carlton beard bis
sentence unmoved. Them Clerk Sparks
read in his sonorous tone the black-edged
death warrant, committing Carlton to the

How Thirsty Kansas Lands May Be Made
Valuable and Productive By lroper
System of Irrigation.
The editor of the Garden City Sentinel
in a recent art cle on irrigation in South
west Kansas reaches the following con
clusions: The factor which furnishes all that the
rest lack in effecting a solution of the
question of a water supply is to be found
in the underflow or "shest water." As
we have shown before, this is, in the Ar
kansas valley, from 20 to 300 feet and
more in depth, from 10 to 50 miles and
more in width, is an average of but three
feet below tho surface in the immediate
river bottoms. It is a vast bidy of water
flowing slowly eastward, being apparent
ly sufficient in quantity to irrigate e11 the
irrigable land for a distance of many
miles on each side of the river. Owing to
the rapid fall cf the entire valley to the
eastward, and the nearnoss of the water
to the surface in the valley, it is an easy
matter to penetrate this underflow and
run the water out upon the surface of the
The cost of obtaining water by this
means to thoroughly irrigate alarge scone
of country would seem, from data thus
obtained, to be so light as to be exceed
It has been demonstrated, and is con
ceded by the best authorities, that the
average yield of irrigated lands is at least
four tnn?s as great, counting one year
with another, as the yield from lands de
pendent on natural rainfall. The cer
tainty and abundance of crops by irriga
tion tend to confine the labors of farmers
to smaller tracts of land, thus insuring a
dense agricultural population which, in
turn, gives emp ovment to a dense manu
facturing population, and the attendant
proportion of the professional classes,
Why Governmental management is
necessary and will bo effective in solving
this problem, we will briefly show:
In the testimony given by the editor of
the Sentinel before the Senatorial Com
mittee on Irrigation as to a plan for irri
gating the plains this was suggested:
That a large main canal should bo pro
vided on the highest ground on each side
of the Arkansas river, reaching from the
mountains, or nearly so, in Colorado, past
tho one hundredth meridian in Kansas;
these to be kept upon the highest land and
to be connected with available storage
reservoirs, thus making two grand chains
of storage canals and lakelets, reaching
clear across the arid region. Then open
supply pools from the underflow and lead
the water to these storage systems, where
it could be made available for all parts of
the land needing iriigation. A supply
once stered, no part of the great plains
need ever be without its ample supply of
water right at hand. While storm waters,
surplus from the mountains and the flow
of artesian wells would all lend their aid,
it must be apparent on the most casual
observation, that tho steady gush of the
inexhaustible waters of the underflow,
day and night the year round would b?
of vastJy greater significance. We only
need refer, en passant, to the immense
amount of water power such a system
would develop sufficient to cover the
land with factories, and heat and light the
homes cf the people by electricity. With
such a system of water supply once de
ve'oped this valley of the American Nile
will support in comfort SI 000,000 of people.
It '' the duty of the Government to take
hold of this matter at once for a host of
reasons. Private capital would develop
the whole in time, but piecemeal, and in a
desultory and unsystematic way. Some
favored localities would be crossed and
re-crossed by a superabundance of ditches,
crowding and interfering with each other,
while other portions would be neglected
whoily or for long years. The cost to the
people in delay and overcharges would be
more than the entire cost of tho system.
The Inter-State feature can be handled
only by the National Government
Not only would National assistance in
sure the speedy and systematic develop
ment of the whole, but it would justify a
proper regulation of the cost of water to
It would not be necessary that the en
tire development should take place in a
year or two, even if such a thing were
possible; but, so much would be assured
from the first, that any part, whenever
construe ed, would be in harmony with the
final whole, and the waste of time, energy
and money be reduced to the minimum.
If we need irr'gation. and this or any
other plan will secure it, it is high time
that the people were awaking and be
stirring themselves. We only speak the
words of truth mildly when we say that
all Southwest Kansas and Southeast Col
orado will need irrigation very much next
season and each season thereafter.
These lands have paid the Government
millions of dollars. Tho East ha3 received
liberally from the paternal store and we
are but demanding what is just when we
say: 'Devote to our needs the little that
will be necessary to make our region
habitable especially when it will add to
the wealth of the Nation a hundred fold."
Millions of private capital are ready to
take up the work and carry it on to a
most glorious success whenever the Gov
ernment shall open tho way, and now is a
far bott r time than any number of years
Important Usury Verdict.
Topeka Kan., Oct 18. The last Kansas
Legislature passed a bill regulating rates
of interest and punishing any one who
took usury. It provides that if excessive
interest or usury is charged "that the
lender is liable to loss of both principal
and interest and can not by law col.ect
either. The first case of the kind was
dscided in the district court of this city
yesterday. Many years ago David Hutch
inson borrowed 48.000 of H. D. Booge, a
money leuder. who was secured by a
real estate mortgage of S12.00J with
excessive rates of interest Hutchin
son died and fiooge sold the notes and
mortgage to xfubbell, of Des Moines,
Iowa, who brought suit for foreclosure
against Hutchinson's heirs some months
ago. Defendants pleaded usury. The exe
cution of the note and interest was ac
knowledged, but the jury rendered a ver
dict for defendants, not giving Hubbell
any thing. They completely wiped out
even the debt of $8,000 acknowledged and
An Old Sore Healed.
Jeffirsos Crrr, Ma, Oct 18. The
State Baptist Association performed an
important work yesterday in ordering
that the Northern and Southern boards of
missions in Missouri be discontinued and
that a State board of missions be created.
This eliminates one of the relics of the
war. The Northern board of missions and
the Southern board of missions have each
regarded Missouri as free ground for the
prosecution of their work, and collections
have been made by each from all the
Baptist congregations. Yesterday this
was done away with, and henceforth all
collections will be made by a Stats board.
The vote on the report recommending this
movement was unanimous.
What the Government May Bo to Get
Back Its Money.
Washhigtos, Oct 16. It is learned taht
Secretary Noble's decision in the rerated
pension case of Senator Manderson, in
which, as indicated in the Senator's letter
to the Scretary, it is held that his rerat
ing was unlawful, was arrived at some"
weeks ago (though not made public) and
he established a precedent which has since
been followed by the Department in a
number of similar cases.
Senator Manderson. it is said, ha3 occu
pied a somewhat different position from a
majority of the pensioners rerated by
Commissioners Black and Tanner, and
particularly those who occupy official po
sitions in the Pension Bureau. His case
was considered and an increased pension
allowed him without any application
on his part or in fact any knowl
edge that his case was bnng con
sidered with a view to an in
crease, until he had received his certifi
cate from the Commissioner of Pensions.
Without drawing the arrearages that the
certificate, showed was due him. Senator
Manderson at once wrote to the Secretary
of the Interior inquiring whether the in
crease in his case was made in accord
ance with law. The Secretary in response
forwarded to the Senator a copy of a de
cision which he had just made in bis case,
in which it was held, as before stated,
that while the Senator was wholly blame
less in the matter, the rerating and in
crease were in direct violation of law.
Thereupon Senator Manderson promptly
returned the certificate to the department
that it might be cancelled.
"One important difference," said an In
terior Department official, "bftween Sen
ator Manderson'. case and the otter
cases, particularly those of the pension
officials, is that he first sought to ascer
tain whether the rerating was lawful, and
having found it was illegal, promptly re
turned the certificate without drawing the
money. Another distinctive feature in
Senator Manderson's case is that he made
no application for rerating. While this
is also true of some others, it is not true
of a large numb3r. It is learned that
there are twenty-ouo of the employes of
the Pension Office wbose ratings have
beer increased. It is said that among the
first duties the new Commissioner will ba
called upon to perform will be the recov
ery of all moneys illegally paid on pension
The Commissioner undoubtedly has the
right, and in those cases where tho money
has been placed beyond the reach of the
law the Government can apply all future
pension payments to the liquidation of
the debt So far, however, no attempt
has been made to recover any of the
money so unlawfully paid. A number of
the twenty-ono employes of the Pension
Office whose pensions were rerated and
increased have left the Government ser
vice since this action was taken. A large
proportion of the number, however, are
still in office, and it therefore, will be
comparatively easy to compel a payment
by withholding both salary and pension
until the debt is cancelled.
A Descent to Death on Cincinnati's Incline
Plane Railway Nine Passengers Meet a
Cincinnati. Oct 16 The most appall
ing accident ever known on the inclined
p lane railways of this city happened yes
terday between twelve and one o'clock.
It was on the Mt Auburn inclined plane,
which lies at the bead of Main street and
reaches to a height of between 250 and 330
feet in a space of perhaps 2,000 feet or less.
Nine persons were first reported killed.
Two cars are employed one on each
track. They are drawn by two steel wire
cables that are wound upon a drum at tho
top of the bill by an engine located there.
Nine passengers had entered the car at
the foot of the plane and a number were
in the other car at the top. The passage
of the ascending car was all right until it
bad reached the top, when, to his un
speakable horror, the engineer'found that
the machinery would not respond and
that he could not stop the engine. Only
one result was possible.
The car was arrested by the strong
bumper, which stops its progress, and as
the engine continued all its force was ex
pended on the two cables, and they
snapped like wrapping thread under its
enormous power. Then the car. with its
nine inmates locked within, began the
descent of that frightful slope. What
were the feelings and thoughts of the fated
nine may hardly be imagined.
The crash at the fcot of the plane was
frightfuL A cloud of dust arose that hid
the wreck from view for a moment, but
when it was dispelled the scene was hor
rible. The iron gate that formed the lower end
of the truck on which tho car rested was
thrown sixty feet down tho street The
top of the car was. lying almost a3 far in
the gutter. The truck itself and the floor
and seats of the car formed a shapeless
wreck mingled with tho bleeding and
mangled bodies of the nine passengers.
Two were taken out dead. One, a middle-aged
lady with gray hair, was recog
nized as Mrs. Ives. A young girl of
twenty. Miss Lillian Oskamp, daughter of
Mr. Henry Kneiss, teacher, living at 11
Euclid avenue, died soon afterward.
Five others were injured, perhaps fa
tally and ono man escaped miraculously
with but a slight injury. The names of
the injured are not yet fully ascertained.
Hon. J. B. Hollister and a Mr. McFadden
are said to be two of them. Judge Hollis
ter is nearly seventy yaars old and can
hardly survive such a shock.
Judge W. M. Dickson was on tho car,
and being too old to escape from such a
terrible shock was one of the first of the
wounded to die. Ho was a well known
attorney, retired for a number of years,
and was a warm personal friend of Presi

sufficient to overcome the Dem

opinion among lawyers is that the Silver
