which Olpnoalrn II won. The weather con

a lieavy wind and a good sea, and the

conditions the was more than a match for
the American. The-Momo can walkaway

and ea,,fts was clearly shown today on
one leg of thecour.se, when there was usud
den change and the wind moderated almost
to a calm. Then the Momo simply flew
through the wtter. In a short time the
breeze again freshened, and then the Glen
cai'-n forged ahead, despite the fact thac
he bad a split in her sail.
After the otart today tlie Glencairn, sail
ing to windward, gained 100 yards over
the .Morao on the first leg. The Glencairn
rounded the tirst buoy 2 minutes 32 sec

the bemt In windward work. Approaching
the buoy marking the end of the first
round the Glencairn rounded the mark at
12:05-14. The Momo loundcd the buoy
at 12.08-23 In the second reach the

The race to the finish of the second
round was the most exciting that took place
during the series, and the Gencairn rounded
the mark only four seconds ahoad of her
rival. It was generally expected then that
the Momo ivould win the race. Her failure
to do was in great measure due to the
splendid seamanship of Duggan. The
Memo's crew, after rounding the buy.
were slow in handling the Jib, and lost
valuaWe time. ,
The sailing of the Gencairn in the beat to
windward on the other leg with a torn

galued rapidly on the Momo, and despite

Charges Against a Candidate for
the New Orleans Collectorship.
SAID TO BE IIANNA'S CHOICE
Stories of Friction Between the
President und 'Secretary Gnge
Over tho Appointment Denied
Alleged Scandalous Conduct of
the Applicant Toward n Lndy.
The ca2 of the hold-up of the appoint
ment or Mr. A. T. Wimberly us collector of
the port of New Orleans is said to have
created alotof badblood between secretary
Gage and the President. It is further
said that this hus been causied by Hon
Mark Hanna endeavoring tb force upon
both the President -mid the Secretary
an appointment which Is opposed by a
large part if not all of the respectable
elements or Louisiana.
It is alleged that Mr. Wimbcrlcy hus been
guilty of offenses which lay him open
certainly to rejection by the President One
part of the story Is that the Secretary ot tho
Ireasury lias put his foot down and aver
that he will iesign before he will accept
the nomination of Wimberly as collector.
It was published in one of the New
York paptrs yesterday that one of the
charge against Wimberly was that he
hud intimated to a mother that, for the
exchange of her daughter's virtue, she
could have her own place back in the
Treasury, from which she had been dis
missed, and also u piece for her daugh
teriu thf New Orleans c ustom-house. ThW
was aluut lost May, und it &u shocked
the mother that she made tlie proper rep
resentations to the Treasury Department,
and Is about to be reinstated without
the assistance or Mr. Wimberly.
The story as printed is ubout ns follows:
"Protests ag-iinst his appointment, how
ever, have been so numerous and oi suen
stiength as to make Secretary Gage de
clare tir.it he would never consent to the
appointment. On one occasion 500 women,
Aives or tlie best known bankers, l.iwyeis
and professional men of New.Oilenus.stfnt
to Mrs. Gage, by a personal representative,
a petition giving Wimberly's record in New
Oi leans and protesting against his ap
pointment. Whnbeily was denounced in the
strongest language as a man of such mal
odorous notoriety as to muke his appoint
ru-nt a national outrage. All these things
Seeretrry Gage laid before McKinley, and
the latter consented to defer the appoint
ment for several months at least, with a
hair promise that he would appoint some
one else. Not long ago, however, after a
visit from Hanna, he made out the commis
sion, signed itmirt sent it to Gage. The
latt-r declined to approve the appointment,
and consequently it has been hanging ever
"The 'atest phase In the Wimberly
case is but a few days old, but has its
beginning back In the early part of May,
On the 7th of that month Mrs. Muthilde
Guyol, of New Orleans, was dismissed
from the Sixth Auditor's office. She
naturally began to work for a reinstate
ment, and, securing the support of a
number of JLouisianiaus, went to Mr. WIm-,
berlv, who -was then in "Washington, and
asked him to help her to secure a re
appointment. Mrs Guyol had been treated
by all the other Louisiana men she had
approached with the greatest courtesy,
as her family is one of the oldest and
l"-tt knoii n in New Orleans. Wimberly
received Mrs. Guyol's request for assist
ance in a bnitall , matier-of-fact "way,
and bpfore the conversation had pro
ceeded beyond tne initial Eta.ges asked
" Haven't you a daughter ubout eighteen
"Mrs. Guyol wa3 thrown off her feat men
tally, and did not know what to answer
to a quest!or. so apparently irrelevant Mr
"Wimberly, however, did not gie her time
to iccover from her confusion before he
" I will secure your reappointment in the
Treasury Department, and avIII appoint
your dauguter to a position in the office or
the collector of customs in New Orleans,
but and heie he sunk his voice to a
Th" proposition was one jo hoirifyingto
Mis. Guyol that she hurried from "Wim
lierly's presence as though he had been
some vi'e monster. Not until a few weeks
ago did she .elllier friends of the infamous
piojwsltion made by "Wimberly. Even then
she was only forced to tlil-s course when
she learned that "Wimberly -ivas blocking
at every point her attempts to secure a
reinstatement in the clasaif'ed service.
"Immediately on learning of Wimberly's
action ex-Senalor Kellogg of Louisiana,
State Senator Watts and several other
Louisianians secured Mrs. Guyol's affidavit
to her charges and filed it with Secretary
Gage. Mrs. Guyol went with them, and
when she had told her story Mr. Gage
was too horrified to discuss the matter,
only promising to see that Mr. Wimberly's
attempts to secure the New Orleans col
lectorship would be thwarted.
Tnis man K Mmplv iriuu cus,' Gag
said to an official who was present when
Mrs. Guyol told her story; -his appoint
ment Mould be a disgrace to the party and
to the countij.' '
Mr. Vandcrtip was called on yesterday
afternoon by a reporter for The Times,
and he promptly discredited two of the
important allegations. He said that there
was no commission made out; that, in
Tact, the appointment had not been made.
There was consequently no ill-reeling of
any kind between the President and Mr.
Gage. Mr. Vanderlip bald that he had
not the slightest doubt that, ir the appoint
ment were made by Mr. McKinley, it
would be accepted without challenge,
Mr. Vanderlip -was asked what there
was in the statement of affidavits being
on file from Mrs. Mathilde Guyol. Mr.
Vanderlip said that he would not make
any statement whatever on the subject,
and dismissed it. It was not good of
ficial form to talk about such records,
if they existed.
Mr. Vaudeilip's statement that Mr ;".ige
would ac.-ex't the nomination of Mr.TVim-l-erly
it made completely backcapped the
tatcnieut that Mr. Gage -would resign
lirr. or that he had expressed himself for
publication to the disadvantage of Mr. Wim

wlio Repressed much displeasure -whtn they
-were not at home when lie expected them.
They are comfortably fixed afc their new
quarters, -irherc they moved about May
. Mrs. Guyol declined absolutely to say one
-svoid on the subject. She was asked if
she had made .such an .affidavit. "I de
cline to answer,'" she said. "Would you
permit the publication of such things it they
were not true without comment?"
"I decline to answer," she said. "I
will only say that it is reported that I
have been reinstated and that statement
is not true."
As a matter of fact, Mrs. Guyol has not
been reinstated. Mr. Tauderlip admitted
that it was a mistake. She had, how
ever, been appointed, and -was waiting only
to be sworn in.
The daughter of. Mrs. Guyol was present
at the Interview -with her mother, and she
also declined absolutely to talk on the
subject of the affidavit. They are both
very intelligent women. They speak with
a slight French accent.
It is, of course, not known whether these
ladles are silent because of their own judg
ment r "because of proffered advice from
tho department, but they cannot be in
cluded to enlighten the public as to the
allegations against Mr. Wimberly.
It was stared last nightthatMr. Wimber

CARLISLE ON THE TARIFF
The Ex-Secretary Argues an In
ATTACKS CONFEREES' REPORT
An Argument on BehnK of the Hos-toii-"Mainc
Company- nnd Canadian
Pacific Railroad Illght of the
Conference Committee to Change
the Law Challenged.
Hon. John O, Carlisle yesj,eiday sub
mitted to tlie Attorney General his brier in
the argument upon the construction or the
clause in the turlltlaw relative to the im
position of a discriminating tariff duty on
goods produced in countries not contiguous
to the United States The brier '.ontains
about 25,000 words, and thoroughly ec
hntistfl the argument from his standpoint as
counsel for the Boston and Maine Hailroad
and the Canadian Pacific Railroad.
Mr. Carlisle discusses the question In
all its legal aspects, aud. to some extent,
asi t may affect our commercial and trans
portatinn interests. Hecontends that there
are only three possible constructions or the
law. According to the first of those con
structions, it to designed to encourage
American shipping interests, by discriminat
ing against uoods produced in non-contiguous
countries, and brought into a con
tiguous country by vessels not or the
United States. nd thence Imported into
the United Slates. A very considerable
portion of the brief is devoted to a dis- I
uusstou of this proposition, in the course
oi' which tho ructs in connection with the ',
origin and enactment of the statute as J
it now stands are stated and commented
a. n, shown that the section as it parsed
both houses of Cougicv related only to
goods cairied in certain classes of lettels.
The conference committee 1 ud no light to
change Us chaincter and did not intend
to do so: that it was not understood in ettner
House or Senate wheu the conference
leportwasundereonsfdcraiiGn that irepur
poseoftheoilginalsectionliadbccnchanged, and hequotesfromthestateinenUjor Senator
Allison and Mt.Dinglcy, who had ohaigc
ofthereports, toshow that this wo thecaKe.
He examines the language or the section
to show that even In Us amended form it
still related exclusnely to goods carried
In vessels, and ou this bra nchof the question
he concludes that the act relates to all
goods actually imported in vessels no lof the
United States and not entitled to the tene
fits of commercial treaties, and tPcundly,
to all goods which, being the product of a
non contiguous Country, aie Imported into
a contiguous ccAmtry in letselb not of the
United States.'-and thence imported into
this country in wholesale qualities.
Mr. Carlisle vpnlencjh that IT the forego
ing is not the rut meaning of the section
ns amended, then the cnly oilier admissi
ble c-onstructiotof tlie luiiHuuge Ik that
the provision was designed to discrimi
nate against the wholesale trade between
the people of the United States and the
peoples of Mexico and Canada in goods
produced in uonrpputiguouv countries and
imported into tips country from Meiico
and Canada. Upon this point he mawes a
critical examination of the language and.
contends that the words "come iito the
United States" mean .pi wisely the same
as the words "imjiortrd lnU the United
States;" that gcods r-aunot come into tho
United States from a onti;muus country
unless they start to the United Stales
from that country, and if they take tneir
depf rture fcr the t nltwi States from that
country lliey are necesarllyi!iiported iroin
it; that ir they take- their departure fcr
tlie United States from China or Japan,
for Instance, and on their way here pass
through Canada or Mexico, they in fact
und in a legal ciise come from China or
Japan, and not from Canada or Me-sko.
The word "hom," it is insisted, does not
mean by way of or through, but mdi-Mtes
tho actual iolnt of departure, and he
quotes authorities to sustain thlb posi
tion. His conclusion On this point Is that tho
discriminating duty applies to all goods
imported in vcesels not of the United
States !id not entitled to the benefits
of treaty stipulations; and, secondly, to
all goods produced in a non-contiguous
country and thence imported Into the
United States from a contiguous country
in wholesale quantities no matter what
mny have been the character of tlie
lesselin which they were brought to such
Accoidiiig to this construction, the object
of the law was to discriminate against
good.s imported into Canada and held there
in store or in bonded warehouses, to be
afterward thrown upon the markets or the
Cnitd States in wholesale quantities.which
would make our law afj all these goods
conform to the existing law of Canada in
relation to tea aud gren corfee imported
rrom the United States into Canada. The
third possible construction is that; it im
poses ,n discriminating duty of 10 per cent
upon all goods, dutiable and Tree, which
which merely pats through the territory
or jurisdiction of Mexio or Canadaon their
way to the United States from their place
or departure for the United States
The construction, he Insists, is wholly un
reasonable, and contrary to the real in
tention of Congress. It would impose th;
discriminating duty upon goods simply
hrivui.se thi'y nre cairied through a con
tiguous country; it would remedy no exist
ing evil; it would inflict immense Injury
upon our railroad and other transportation
interests, without any eoi responding bene
fit to the masses of. the people, and would
undoubtedly provoke retaliation on the
part of the Dominion government.
He .shows that the value of foreign
mnet'aodlse imported Into Canada an
nually through our.seaports and carried to
that country by our, rail roads, and tlie value
-.f Canadian products i.nnually carried by
our rai'roads to our seaports for exporta
tion to other rountriesls about $-12,01)0,000,
wiule the total value of all merchandise
Imported Into the United States through
Montreal, St. Joup's, Halifax, Vancouver
and all other Cuaadian ports during the
year ending June 0, 1897, carried over
Canadian railroads was only $7,663,810.
The valus or our domestic products ox
ported to other countries through Canada
is very small, and the most of it is
carried by water. The total annual im
portsinto Canadaf rom all countries amount
tx,ubout?118,000,000,or- which the United
States furnish about $136,000,000. Of
the 52,000.000 which is imported from
other countries, about $20,000,000 Is car
ried by our railroads.
Tea is the principal article imported by
Canada at the port of Vancouver, and
it amounts to less than one-half of the
domestic consumption of teas In that
country. The large part of the remain
ing half reaches Canada through our ports.
The balance in the reciprocal trans
portation ot goods js largely on the side
of American railroads and the construc
tion of the section contended for by its
advocates would destroy the business at
once ard Inflict a Very great and unneces
sary Injury upon these roads and upon

London, Aug. 18. The deadlock that lias

incapable of finding tlie money to pay

which Ihe negotiations are proceeding.

James McCabe, living, at South Capitol
andR streets, was lield .up and assaulted
by a colored desperado early this morn
ing. Mr. McCabe was at the corner of
S street and within one square of his
home when a colored man approached
him and begau to converse.
Tney had gone but a few steps when the
colored man suddenly drew a stone from
his pocket and dealt Mr. McCabe two
stunning blows in Hie fuce. "While his
victim was down the highwaymen rifled
his pockets, and being disappointed as
not finding much money, kicked his vic
tim in the face. Mr. McCabe was found
lying in the street by a patrolman, who
came by shortly after. His face was
badly bruised and cut and the blood from
his wounds had dyed his clothing. He
was taken tothe Washington Asylum Hos
pital in the Fifth precinct patrol wagon.
The colored highwayman is known and
will doubtless be arrested today.

a Gra-ve Charge.
Frank. Harris, a diminutive colored boy,
wus airested yesterday morning by Officer
Reniti, charged with snatching a pocket
book from the hand of a lady passing
along Pennsylvania avenue, near Twentieth
street, yesterday morning; The lad was
kept locl-ed up in the station all the after
noon, and although the lieutenant and the
st-igeant tried repeatedly to get him to
make a statement, their efforts were un
availing. Last night the lady called at the station
and identified the boy,, who soon atter
wards said that another boy had stolen
the pocketbook, hut he described its
contents so accurately himself that it
is considered well established that Frank
was the real thief. The case will como
up in police court today.
