GETTING AS CRAZY AS MEADE.
Some Rather Interesting Testimony
to Support the Charge of
BROOKLYN, H. V., May 14. — Ex-
Medical Director Bloodgood and Surgeon-
General Tryon were witnesses before the
Kershner court-martial at the navy -yard
to-day. A letter from Dr. Kershner to
Surgeon Tryon, which was marked "per
sonal," was read. It was dated Kingston,
Jamaica, April 7, 1895, and was as follows:
My Dear Tryon: They had a hearing yester
day and I now send you a copy. I hope it will
not get you into trouble because it got into
the paper. You must have informed the Secre
tory you had a copy. I sairt I had sent it to
you, and if they had asked me I would have
been obliged to tell them that I seat it to Dr.
I can't tell you how I appreciate your affec
tionate friendship. It is about the only thing
that has saved me from going overboard after
what I have suffered— such vile, baseless, crazy
words from a man who is unfitted for a place
of admiral. 1 don't go on deck for fear of see-
ing him. I would as soon see the devil. I hate
him from head to foot as I never hated any
man before. I sometimes think if this con
tinues I will soon be as crazy a« he is. I hope
that when the ship goes to Kiel it will leave
him there. Ke will retire; at least, he says he
Dr. Tryon ?aid the accused had always
borne an excellent reputation in the navy
and he saw no reason why he should be
Captain Glass of the Cincinnati, presi
dent of the court of inquiry held on board
the United States cruiser New York, off
Kineston. Jamaica, on April 6, swore that
he au ministered the oath to Dr. Kershner
and that the doctor testified that he had
only sent a copy of the second indorse
ment to the surgeon-general of the navy in
a personal letter. The doctor's testimony
was read over to him and so was the testi
mony of every other witness.
Mr. Choate in cross-examination asked
the witness if the judge-advocate had not
told Dr. Kershner that the obiect of the
inquiry was to find out if any verbatim
copies of the reports and indorsements had
been sent out by him.
Captain Glass said he did not think the
word "verbatim" was used during Dr.
Kershner 's examination. Mr. Choate then
read from the reports of the inquiry in
which the word verbatim occurred.
Dr. Kershner was then called to the
stand. In reply to Mr. Hinsdale he said
he entered the navy in September, 1861,
coming to the cruiser of the Atlantic
squadron early this year. The witness
said he was a fleet surgeon, and was very
careful so that no fever could possibly
come on board.
While off Su Lucia he believed there
was fever ashore, and he persistently re
fused to allow any water from the shore to
come on board. His suspicions as to fever
were afterwards found to be well founded.
When the request for assistance came
from the Nova Scotian bark, the doctor,
after hearing the description of the sick
man, felt sure he showed symptoms of yel
"When Captain Evans spoke to me,"
said the witness, "I told him of the danger
of either going myself or sending an as
sistant to the bark, fearing to bring con
tagion on board.
'■If I had not spoken so to the captain I
should have been derelict in my duties. I
did not refuse to go or send a doctor, for if
the captain had ordered me to do so I
most certainly would have obeyed. As it
was, however, Captain Evans went and
caw Admiral Meade, as he did not dare to
take the responsibility of issuing the order
himself. When he came back and told me
the admiral had ordered assistance to be
sent I immediately sent Dr. Cook."

ALT GELD LOVES CHICAGO.
Why He Vetoes JMII That Would Injure
SPRINGFIELD, 111., May 14.— Governor
Altgeld to-day vetoed the Miller bill, re
quiring corporations to procure the consent
of a majority of property-owners in each
block of a city before gas mains, electric
wires, street-railway tracks, etc., can be
laid. The Governor also vetoed Crawford's
bill to prevent elevated or street-railways
from crossing at grades and to prevent
parallel lines from consolidating.
The vetoes are wildly applauded. Speak
ing of the bills as a whole the Governor
gives as the reason for vetoing them as
"Because their effect would increase the
riches of some men at the expense of others
by legislation ; because they would shackle
a great city. I love Chicago- and am not
willing to help forge a chain which would
bind her hand and foot for all time to the
wheels of monopoly and leave her no
chance of escaping."
UIG FIRE AT DETROIT.
names Sweep Over a Large Lumber-
DETROIT, Mich., May 15.— A big fire is
raging in the jards of the Dwight Lum
ber Company, which occupy about two
blocks square at Scotten avenue and the
Michigan Central Railroad tracks. The
loss thus far is estimated at $100,000. The
fire originated in the company's planing
mill, and at 2 a. M. Is sweeping through the
entire yards. '
At 2:30 a. M. the firemen were getting
control of the flames. The yard contained
a planing-mill, dry kiln, shingle and back

lumber. The extent of the insurance has
not yet been learned.
ALL MINERS ADMITTED
An Important Movement in the
Interest of Organized
Great Increase In Strength and
Power of the Western
DENVER, Colo, May 14.— The most im
portant work accomplished in many years
in the interest of organized labor was con
summated to-day by the convention of the
Western Federation of Miners. The coal
miners' unions, representing thousands of
men in several Western and Northwestern
States, were admitted to membership in
The step was made without any extended
discussion, such as was anticipated, and
the proposition to admit carried by a heavy
majority. The acquisition of the coal
miners makes the Western Federation of
Miners one of the most powerful labor
bodies in the country.
The result of to-day's action will be that
the federation, which now has over 40,000
membership, will be greatly increased in
numbers and financial standing.
The trouble in Cripple Creek last year
was a serious drain on the resources of the
order, but still it is said that the organiza
tion has a surplus of over half a million
dollars. To-day's meeting appointed a
committee on revision of the constitution
and by-laws. It is said that little revision
is needed and that so far as the admission
of the coal miners is concerned there
would be no necessity for any.
The federation was organized on the
basis that every miner in the West coultl
be a member, and it was never intended
tbat its membership should be contined to
The convention determined that the em
ployment of an organizer for the entire
West was a necessity, and it is probable
that such an official will be appointed.
Heretofore the different organizations
have been under the supervision of a State
president and were controlled by him. By
the new arrangement all the States and
Territories as far east as Kansas and all
north, south and west of Colorado will be

Great Destitution Caused by a Falling

TOPEKA, Kans.. May 14.— State Labor
Commissioner Birn has just returned from
Scranton, Osage County, where he had
been sent to investigate reports of suffer-

enforced idleness. He declares that the
condition of some of the men and their
families is deplorable.
Of the 400 miners in and about Scrantoh
200 have had no work for six weeks to two
months, and the others are getting from $3
to $10 a week. The cause it all is, of course,
lack of demand for coal. The idle men
have tried to get work on the farms or in
other vocations, but the labor market is
overstocked, and they tinally appealed to

a Letter to the
DICTATES A STATEMENT.
Explanation of the Failure of
the Department to Grant
TROUBLE OVER A TRANSFER.
It Is not Definitely Decided What
Steps Will Be Taken In the Naval
"WASHINGTON, D. C., May 14.—Secre
tary Herbert to-day, in response to in
quiries, dictated the following official state
ment concerning Admiral Meade:
"At the Navy Department to-day it was
learned that the department has addressed
a letter to Admiral Meade stating that it
desired to know if he was willing to answer
whether he had or had not axithorized
wnat purported to be an interview with
him published in the New York Tribune,
and that he had replied acknowledging the
receipt of the letter and declining to answer
"The facts in relation to the failure of
the department to grant Admiral Meade's
request to have the Cincinnati ordered to
the New York yard instead of the Norfolk
yard are that this vessel was ordered to go
to the Norfolk Navy -yard for repairs. This
was done on the recommendation of the
chief constructor, who desired that the
work, which is now scarce at both yards,
might be equally divided between the
Norfolk and Brooklyn yards. Admiral
Meade, who had selected the Cincinnati
for his flagship during the absence of the
New York, was thereupon ordered to hoist
his flag on that vessel upon her arrival at
Norfolk, in the interim hoisting his flag on
the Minneapolis. He afterward forwarded
a second request to the department to have
the Cincinnati ordered to New York instead
of to Norfolk.
"On the day when this latter request was
received Secretary Herbert was not in the
department at any time, Assistant Secre
tary McAdoo being in charge. He did not
act on the request as he did not think it
proper to take any action in the matter un
til the Secretary's return. On the next
morning, when Secretary Herbert came to
his oriice, this letter having been brought
to his attention, he at once summoned be
fore him the chief constructor, and after
conferring with him and Assistant Secre
tary McAdott jointly, decided to order the
Cincinnati to New York, and at once or
dered Admiral .Ramsey, who was present,
to make out orders to intercept the ship at
Hampton Roads, and order her to New
York. He also directed orders to be made
out to Admiral Meade notifying him of
this change of orders both to the admiral
and to the ship. The orders were written
and ready to be signed, when a letter came
on the noon mail from Admiral Meade
asking to be detached from the squadron,
which request the Secretary granted."
This constitutes all the information that
could be obtained, and leaves the inference
that the action, if any, to be taken against
Admiral Meade is not yet determined.
RIXaS WITH PATRIOTISM.
Ex-Senator Sabin Indorse* the Senti
ment* of Admiral Meade.
NEW YORK, N. V., May 14.—Ex-Sen
ator Dwight M. Sabin of Minnesota left
early this morning for Boston. Mr. Sabin
is practically out of politics, but neverthe
less he takes a keen interest in the affairs
of the day. Speaking of the case of Ad
miral Meade, who so bluntly gave his rea
sons for retiring from the navy, Mr. Sabin
"There was a ring of patriotism and an
air of independence in Admiral Meade's
utterances that found an echo in every
loyal man's mind. It may be that it was
a lack of discipline, but he had grave
cause, and I think Meade was about right.
I see that President Cleveland and Secre
tary Herbert talk of court-martialing Ad
miral Meade. I do not think they dare
take that step. Let them go ahead, and
they will see how much this country hon
ors a brave man. Let Admiral Meade
stand by his words and the policy they
outline. There will be another adminis
tration in a short time, and we want a man
with such sentiments at the head of the
Navy Department. He may be Secretary
of the Navy yet."
BIG TREASURY DEFICIT
It Has Passed the Fifty-Million
Mark and It Is Still
The Second Year in Thirty That th©
Expenditures Exceed the
WASHINGTON, D. C, May 14. — The
Treasury deficit to-day passed the $50,000,
--000 mark, the exact amount of the excesß
of expenditures over the receipts since July
1, 1894, being $50,404,887.
The deficit for the thirteen days of the
present month is $5,150,517. This is the
second year since 1865 that the expend
itures of the Government have exceeded
its revenues. Last year the deficit was
$ >9,801.260, making the aggregate defic
iency since July 1, 1893, $120,203,147.
The receipts from customs so far this
year amount to a little over $133,000,000,
which is about $1,000,000 in excess of the
customs receipts during the whole of the
last fiscal year. The internal revenue re
ceipts this year to date aggregate about
$125,500,000, as against $147,111,232 during
the fiscal year 1894.
The best information obtainable as to the
net result of the year's financial operations
is that, even if the income-tax law is per
mitted to remain as it is, the deficiency on
July 1 next will exceed $55,000,000, and if
the law is declared unconstitutional it may

Sfxtfi Annual Convention of State Officials
WASHINGTON, D. C, May 14.-The
sixth annual convention of State Railway
Commissioners was called to order at the
Interstate Commerce Commission office to
day. Delegates from the Association of
Railway Clerks participated in the discus
sions. Allen Fort of Georgia acted as chair
man and Secretary E. A. Mosley of the
Interstate Commerce Commission as sec
retary. Professor Adams, statistician of
the Committee on Railway Statistics, read
the commission's annual report.
The conclusions of the commission were
that practically the only unit of traffic now
arrived at is the revenue per ton per mile, a
unit considered unsatisfactory. The com
mission decided it would be advisable in
the future to undertake a freight move
ment and freight revenue so that the rev
enue per ton per mile for each kind of
freight could be secured as was suggested
at the last convention.
In view of the fact that the cost of this
system would be about $1,000,000 and of
the depressed condition of the railway
business, the commission recommended
that the report lie on the table. Most of
the morning was spent in discussing the
report and action upon it was postponed.
At the afternoon session James Peabody,
editor of the Railway Age, read a paper on
"Protection of Public Interest During Rail
way Labor Contests."
AN UGLY CRISIS REACHED
England Refuses to Re-enact
Last Year's Sealing
Poachers Will Probably Have Every
thing Their Own Way In
WASHINGTON, D. C, May 14.— An
ugly crisis has been reached in the nego
tiations between the United States and
Grtat Britain looking to the adoption of
uniform relations for the government of
the seal fisheries this season. The British
Govern in en t positively refuses to re-enact
the regulations of last year which pro
hibited the carrying of firearms by sealing
vessel? through the sea north of the 25th
parallel daring the closed season. The
United States officials look upon this as
disastrous to the seal fisheries, holding that
the result will be to relieve the pelagic
sealers of the only restriction which has
operated to prevent an unlimited slaughter
of the herds. While killing by firearms re
mains illegal, it is realized that it will be
impossible to enforce this prohibition if
arms may be freely carried, for the sealers
would kill secretly unless they should hap
pen to be under the very eye of a revenue
Meanwhile the United States cutters
have gone out under the old instructions
to seize all vessels carryinearnis not under
seal. These must be modified speedily by
orders sent through the Alaska Commer
cial Company's steamer which leaves San
Francisco m a day or two, or else there
may be another big claim for damages on
account of illegal seizures filed by the
British Government. The attitude of the
latter is viewed with much dissatisfaction
at the State Department, which is regarded
as an evidence of the unwarrantable con
cession to the Canadian pelagic sealers.
It is also held that the effect of the British
action is to practically nullify all measures
of protection for tlie seals that were con
ferred by the Paris arbitration, and it
would not be surprising if this course is per
sisted in that it will result in a declaration
by the United States of the abrogation of
LONDON, Exq., May 14.— The Foreign
Office, referring to the report that Great
Britain has decided not to renew the agree
ment with the United States regarding the

sealers were glad for their own protection

Friends of Mr. Hazelton have no definite

Dr. Ellen Ferguson, president of the

report, showing that there are 130 paid-up
members, a snug balance in the treasury
and a band of young and old women who
are ever ready to work for the cause. For
seventeen years she worked for the fran
chisement of her sex before coming to
Utah. The speaker interestingly related
some of her experiences at this point. In
the Constitutional Convention she had
pitied some of the misguided who fought
against the inevitable. Utah had a cos
mopolitan population comprising the best
elements of people who would appreciate
the boon that had been conferred upon
Mrs. Emma McVicker said she had voted
twice in this Territory, and although na

hereafter. [Applause.] If women had
been on the board of control of the joint

KANSAS CITY. Mo., May 14.— A spe
cial to the Journal from Oklahoma City
says: Phil H. Brady, scion of wealthy
and prominent Atlanta (Ga.) people,
eloped to-day with nineteen-year-old Nel
lie Stone, a niece of Hon. E. W. Stone, a
leading lawyer of this city.
The objective point of the couple was
Kansas City, but the law overtook them at
Emporia and an officer will be sent to-day
to bring them back.
The charge on which Brady was arrested
was obtaining money tinder false pre
tenses, being charged with obtaining $350
on a forged draft before he left Oklahoma.
Brady came here to obtain a divorce
from a girl he had married in Atlanta
some years ago and against whom his
parents were very bitter. Since coming
here Brady has cut a wide swath in society.

MANY BODIES ARE BURNED
How the Turks Try to Con
ceal Their Crimes in
Reforms for the Government of the
Persecuted People Urged by
CONSTANTINOPLE, Turkey, May 14.—
The commission which has been investi
gating the atrocities of Armenia traversed
the devastated villages and arrived at
Jelligoosan (also written Ghellyguzan),
where 120 houses were found burned. The
people were sheltered in miserable huts
and ample proof was found of the massacre
of the Armenians. The bodies were
thrown into a pit, where the Turks en
deavored to conceal their crime by pouring
barrels of petroleum upon the bodies and
setting fire to the oil.
The flames, however, failed to consume
the mass and the stream was dammed and
diverted from its course in order to wash
away halt of the burned bodies. But even
this failed to obliterate the terrible evidence
against the Turks, and the local authori
ties were compelled to remove the remains
piecemeal. The villagers had removed the
bulk of the bodies and interred them in
consecrated ground before the arrival of
the commission at Jelligoosan. The com
mission has returned to Moosh.
The delegates of the powers left Moosh
April 5. The Turkish delegates at first
declined to accompany them and then
changed their mind?. They found the
villages of Shenik and Gernal in
ruins standing in the midst of devas
tated fields. They passed other villages
where many houses were burned. At
Jelligoosan the commission caused two
pits instead of one, as orgiinally reported,
to be opened and found in them the re
mains of skulls and bones, with hair and
clothing still adhering. In still another
pit in a ravine, near Jelligoosan, were
found the decapitated trunks and other
remains. But few bodies, however, were
The villagers told the delegates that they
had removed the bodies from this pit. The
exhalations from the pits were so frightful
that the delegates experienced ereat trouble
in prevailing upon the laborers to finish
their horrible task. As a result of the in
vestigation and the reports of the delegates
the powers have submitted notes to the
Turkish Government impressing upon the
Porte the necessity of promptly inaugurat
ing a scheme for Armenian reforms, which
should include the appointment of Chris
tian officials in Armenia, the powers to
have the right to veto the appointments of
the Governors. The notes of the delegates
do not base their suggestions on the As
soun outrages, but on the general unsatis
factory condition of Armenia.
