OLD GLORY RUN ALOFT.
A New Era in thB American
The Steamer City of New York
Changes Her Colors.
President Harrison Hoists the Stars
and Stripes at Her Mast.
An Imposing; Ceremony on the Big
Veaaal's Deck—Many Dignitaries
Graoe the Occasion With
By the Astoclated Presi.]
New York, Feb. 22.—The ceremony of
raising the American flag on the steam
ship New York, arranged for noon to
day, was marred by inclement weather.
The beginning of tbe ceremonies was
made late by the delay of the president,
owing to tbe storm. Everything was in
readiness by 12 o'clock, the New York
having taken up a position near the Bat
tery, the United Slates cruiser Chicago
being there also. Along the rivor the
docks and vessels were gayly decorated.
All the joig transatlantic liners in port
were flying flags at every peak, and long
lines of streamers etretched from mast to
mast. On the New York two battalions
of the naval reserve were on duty, she
looked spick and span. All the sailors
were in new uniforms.
There waa quite a crowd in the Penn
sylvania depot when the president's
train at last came in, about 2 o'clock.
The president walked down the plat
form leaning on the arm of Mayor Gil
roy. Secretaries Klkins, Wanamaker
and Rusk and General J. A. Dutuont
followed immediately after, and with
the rest of the party hurried on board
of the Sam Sloane and almost imme
diately after steamed offfor the New York
Upon receipt of the news of the ar
rival of the president, the cruiser fired
the president's salute, and followed it
up 10 i minutes later with another in
honor of Secretary Tracy.
President Harrison came aboard the
New York shortly before 2 o'clock. The
naval reserve drew up in double rank
on the hurricane deck, with the band
corps in the fear. The presidential
party was given a hearty cbeer. Presi
dent Harriaon waa escorted to the atern
of the ship by Captain John 0. Jami
son, commander, followed by four mem-
I bars of tbe cp >iner, who we r e present,
and Clement A. Griscom, president of
the American line and directors of the
company. Congressman TV. Bourke
Cockran, to whom was given the honor
of formally inviting President Harrison
to raise the flag, stepped forward and
"My friends, I have been BBked by
the officers of the company whose hos
pitality we enjoy to open the ceremonies.
Those ceremonies consist in replacing a
foreign flag by the flag of our country at
the masthead of thia triumph of (the
ehip-buildera' art. It ia a magnificent
occasion, and it marks a peaceful con
quest—a conquest of the civilization
which we celebrate when we annex this
splendid specimen of marine architecture
to the American merchant marine. I
turn, eir, to you, (turning to President
Harrison), who stand before the world
today a high type of the citizen of this
country; a heroic defender of ita integ
rity, and commit to your hands the
unfurling from the masthead the flag
which typifies American liberty and en
His address was received with great
President HarrUon said:
"Mr. Cockran and Gentlemen: It
gives me pleasure to consummate here
today by the act of lifting the flag, the
legislation to which I gave my hearty
support. I felt as a citizen and presi
dent the mortification which every
American must feel who examines into
the standing of the United States in
the merchant marine of the world.
I believed we had reached an
epoch in our development when
the great work of internal devel
opment was so far consummated, that
we might successfully take up the work
of recovering our fair share of the car
rying trode of the world. fApplauee.J
We lift tho flag today over one snip, an
event interesting in itself, but its inter
est to me is in the fact that this Bhip ia
the type and precursor of many others
that are to float this flag. \ Applause.] I
deem it an entirely appropriate function
that the president of the United States
should lift the American flag."
Immediately the silk stars and stripe,
were run up and a string of streamers
unfurled, extending over the mast
heads to the bow and stern of the big
liner. The presidential flag topped the
mainmast; the company's new bouse
flag floated at tbe fore, and the mail
flag waa displayed at the top niizzen
Simultaneously with the appearance
of "Old Glory" over tbe taft'rail, the
gunß of the Chicago tired a national sa
lute of 21 gunß; the navy yard in Brook
lyn also responded with 21 guns, and
then followed a pandemonium of whist
ling and boll ringing from the craft in
The trip down the bay was cancelled
on account of the storm.
At the conclusion of the oeremonies
President Harrison retired to the main
saloon where he held a reception. He
met and shook hands with several hun
At 8:80 the presidential party went on
board the ateamer, which departed im
mediately for Jersey City, where they
took the 4 o'clock train for Washington.
Washington, Feb. 22. —The preaident

at 10 o'clock tonight. Postmaster-
General Wanamaker left the party at

SWITCHMEN GO OUT.
A Long and Bitter Strike In Chicago
Chicago, Feb. 22. —Tt-e switchmen
and switch tenders on the Chicago and
Western Indiana road moat on a strike
tonight. Aa the road is a belt line on
which the Louisville, New Albany and
Chicago, the Wabash, th* Chicago and
Eastern Illinois, the Chicago and Erie,
the Grand Trunk and thu Atchison,
Topeka and Santa Fe enter the city, not
a train over those road* is able
to leave the city tonight. The etriiers
this morning presented demands for an
increase of 25 per cent in wages to Pres
ident Thomas and Superintendent War
ner of the belt line, and a long confer
ence resulted. The officials were not
ready to grant the men's demands im
mediately and another meeting wae ar
ranged for later in the day.
Ab late ac 4 o'clock President Thomas
declared there would be no atrike, and
the switchmen eaid the same. Two
hours later, without warning and with
no further developments in the negotia
tions, the men quit work and business is
at a standstill. Nothing was known of
the strike nntil a eaburban train was
halted at Sixteenth street by an open
switch. Signals were given the en
gineer, ''Come ahead," but ac be could
plainly Bee the switch ope.-, ahead of

sengers were compelled to alight nnd

The atrikers do not exceed 300, but
there ia a probabilty that the etrike
may spread to other road". The police
were at one notified and a large force of
men Bent to tbe yarda to quell any poa
sible disturbance. But so fa- the men
hove shown a peaceable disposition.
The police were later reinforced by a
detachment of Pinkerton men and a
force of detectivea and watc.imen em
ployed by the road. The latter began
work on the switches, anc' the belated
traiua were made up and the last of
them sent out by midnight. Prospects
for a settlement of the difficulty are not
bright, ac President Thomas declares
the men acted in buo faith with him,
and did not keep their agreement aB to
the length of time he iras to have to
consider their demand. He was dis
posed, he aaid, to grant anything reason
able, but states that the men's action
released him from ail obligations or
promisee he may have made.

Cashier Redwine of the Gate City
National bank of thia city, ia the big
gest financial Bencation Atlanta has
known for years. This morning a
thorough examination of the bank's
affairs was made by the officers ot the
Clearing House association, and they
reported a defalcation of about $05,000,
certainly no more than tbat. Tho Clear
ing House officers declare the bank can
pay its depositors every cent and can
pay the stockholders in full. The great
est mystery about the affair is Ked
wine'a disappearance. Up to this time
absolutely no trace of his whereabouts
has been found. It ia believed he has
gone west. Redwine had evidently b»en
living beyond hia meanß for years. The
bank officials beliove Redwine waa be

they were never discovered.

made tbat the Britisher will not enter

THE BIMETALLIC LEAGUE.
An Interesting Sea.lon of the Association
Washington, Feb. 22. —The first an
nual convention of the American bime
tallic league was called to order today
by President A. J. Warner. Fifty dele
gates from the western states were pres
ent, among them General Weaver, late
candidate for president on the People's
party ticket, accompanied by Mra.
Warner, in a speech, said tbe question
of free, coinage overshadowed the tariff
question, which, in bis opinion, was but
the result of tbe restricted coinage of
eilver, and it was really at the bottom of
the Irish question, of the labor question,
and responsible for the condition of the
laboring man. He urged the league to
tight not only against the repeal of tbe
Sherman act, but to labor until silver
wp.a put on a parity with gold.
Addresses were also made by Weaver,
Mra. Lease and Senator Stewart.
Interesting addresses occupied this
evening's session. Among the speakers
were Colonel rjhinn of Kansas and Con
gressmen Bland and Hatch of Missouri.
The last speaker of the evening was
Judge J. W. Huston, chief justiceof Ida
ho, who said the legislation of
1573 was unconstitutional and it
should be stricken from the statute
books. It is a fact, he siid, that not
an ounce oi silver waß ever produced in
the country at a cost oAless than $2 per
ounce, yet gilded senators wabbling
around in the places of Calhoun and
Webster thought silver ran like cap from
Adjonrned until tomorrow.
HE HELPED A FHIEND
And Now Governor McKinley Heeds
Friends to Help Him.
Cleveland, 0., Feb. 22.—A plan for
the adjustment of the financial affaire of
Governor McKinley was decided on to
day at a conference of some of the gov
ernor's friende. A statement received
last night showed that he had indorsed
notes for Walker aggregating over $100,
-000. The total may be $116,000. Mr.
Kohlsaat of Chicago, Colonel Herrick
and Jamea Hoyt, of this city, and others
attended the conference. Governor
McKinley expressed a desire to make an
assignment of all hie property, and Mrs.
McKinley insisted upon doing the same
The plan finally decided upon was:
The governor makes an absolute assign
ment of all his proDertv to Kdhlßaat,
Herrick and Judge Day." In order.Jhow
ever, to satisfy Mrs. McKinley's persist
ent wish, a deed was executed by her,
conveying her property to trustees for
the benefit of her husband's creditors.
This deed waa placed in the hands of
Hon. M. A. Hanna of thia city, to be
dealt with in his diacretion.
When the transfer was concluded,
Governor McKinley said to an Associated
Press representative: "There ie little
for me to say about the unfortunate
affair. I did what I could to help a
friend who befriended me, and the re
eult is shown. The amount of my in
dorsements is in excess of anything I
dreamed of. My property will be insuf
ficient to satisfy my debts. What re
mains unpaid I shall execute my notes
for and pay them aa fast ac I can."

Finger ln the Pie—Paul Neumann's
Statement Laid Before
By the Associated Press.
Washington, Feb. 22.—The senate in
executive session, today, considered tlw
Hawaiian treaty. Morgan made n
strong plea for annexation. Mills of
Texas ie opposed to the present ratifica
tion of the treaty; he insists that s
question of euch importance ehonld not
be discussed behind closed doors, bnt
should ba fully discussed by the press
and the people.
Today, Springer of Illinois introduced
into the bouse a resolution for reference
to the committee on ways and means,
setting forth that the treaty of annexa
tion of the Hawaiian ielands, if finally
ratified, will require the government of
the United Statea to pay the public
debt of Hawaii, and the amounts dne
depoaitors in the Hawaiian Poetal Sav
ings bank, which aggregate $3,500,000,
besides $20,000 par annnm to the lata
queen and the lump gum of $150,000 to
Princess Kaiulani, and obligate thia
government to pay the inhabitants of
said islands a bounty upon the sugar
produced in aaid islands, and requesting
the president to famish the house with
information showing tbe amount of aaid
postal deposits and the debt of Hawaii,
rate of interest, etc.; also, any informa
tion about the sugar annually produced
in Hawaii and the amount of money re
quired to pay the bounty in caae of an
nexation, besides the probable amount
of other obligations thia government ia
to assume as the necessary consequence
of such annexation.
Secretary of State Foster sent today to
the chairman of the eenate committee
on foreign relations the atatement Paul
Neumann left at the department yester
day, and accompanied it with a report
of the interview held. From the letter
} it appears that the>pbjeat of Neumann's
v sit fa tt neo re the restoration of Qaeen
LiliuoKalani to the throne under an
American protectorate. He doea not ad
vise her restoration under any other cir
cumstances. If congress doee not deem
a protectorate feasible, then he is in
favor of annexation, with a liberal al
lowance for the queen and Princess
Kaiulani, but strongly objects to tbe
continuance of the present provisions'
government in power.
WANTS TO BE A QUEEN.
Princess Kaiulani Halls far America to
Plead for Hor Throne.
London, Feb. 22.-Princess Kaiulani,
heir to the throne of Hawaii, Bailed for
America today accompanied by her
guardian, Theophilua Daviea. In an in
terview with a correspondent before her
departure, ehe eaid she had no definite
plane and would be guided by the ad
vice of her guardian. She propoeed to
go to Boston (o remain till after the in
auguration of Cleveland, then go to
Washington probably to make a per
sonal appeal To the new president. She
expressed the hope that ehe might gain
tbe sympathy ot the American people.
She could not ace why she should be
summarily deprived of her rights
through no fault of her own, and
without being even notified to appear
in defense of them. She knew
nothing of the ail'air except what
she read in the newspapers. She de
clined to express any opinion on Har
rison's message recommending annex
ation, or whether she woutd accept the
monetary consideration in case it waa
done. She evidently considers her case
hopeless. She declared herself entirely
opposed to the policy of the queen
which led to her overthrow. She did
not want a protectorate for Hawaii, but
independence. She favored the idea of
her guardian, that a regency be appoint
ed for three years, with President Dole
of the provisional government aa pres
ident, she to be crowned queen at its ex
piration. It was evident ehe would be
guided by her guardian.
