MR, HALL TAKES A HAND,
Tho Itiimlolpli County Mutesimin Working
for cx-IJmitciiaiit Oovornor Campbell
for Munsur's Place.
Washington, May 9, (Special.) Itepre
sentatlvo Hall, of Mlssoutl, Is making tho
rounds quietly, looking after some otllce
huntlng matters, Mr. ilall la not Inclined
to be estranged from tho administration
as ho has three brothers feeding at tho
government trough up to date and In ad
dition to this he has some distant rela
tives who aru enjoying pie to tho limit.
There Is a. story to tho effect that Mr,
Hall Is thu dliect representative of ex.
Governor rrunels In tho matter of liudlng
a Mlssourlun for the place of deputy comp
troller. This being part 0 na mission, It
)s bald that Mr. Hall will, after u careful
mrvey of the situation, decide that ex
Lieutenant CJoveinor Campbell, of St.
Louis. Is the right man to annolnt. It Is
understood that Mr. Hall has evidence to
show to the president and Secretary Carl
isle that the ux-goveinor would be de-
jlKnteu io see i-miipueii uppoirueu.
It is also said the fact the appointment
lias not been made indicates that the pres
ident may give the place to Missouri. It
is well Known that Carlisle some days
ugo recommended ex-Ileprescutatlve Coop
er, of Indiana, for the Place, but us the
appointment )-' hung lire It Is thought
that it U the opinion of tho president that
the position should continue to be held
by a Mlssourlan. Hence especial interest
Is centered in the visit of Itepresentutlve
Keturu of Pension Money Demanded.
Macon. Mo., May 9, (Special.) John M.
Dennlson, one of the oldest citizens of
Callao township, this county, some months
ago applied for a pension for services in
the late war. In duo time he received a
government remittance of two, and neither
he nor Ills neighbors ever suspected the pos
sibility of any mistake until to-day, when
an agent culled upon him and demanded
tho money back ut once, claiming it be
longed to an Illinois man by thu same
name. . , . . .
Dennlson was not conscious of having
done anything unlawful, and -will raise and
return the JW3 unless he finds the money is

Topeka, Kas.. May 9. (Special.) Talk
about the Urcldonthn exposal e has had the
right of way about the state house to-day.
Thcio can be no two opinions iibout the
matter, for Mi. liiciilenth.il admits the
coircetness of Accountant Chullenor's le
poit. He claims, howeer, that he has
been sulky of nothing more serious than
it technical violation of the law, and that
lliu state has not been w longed of ,i cent.
He lias oftet.-d no other explanation of the
fact tliat for a teim of twenty months he
kept out of the treasury of Kansas largo
sums of money uhlrh the law says he
should hao deposited immediately. To
day Mr. ItreldPlUh.il deposited $9lj, wlileh
leaves him behind but $300, which ho prom
ises to tutu oer us soon as his deputies
shall have leportul.
The report of Accountant Ohullenor
slioivs cMictly how Mr. Ilieldenth.il con
ducted his olllce In withholding money from
the state which belonged tu it. Dm lug
tho twenty-two months In which ho held
otllco under Governor Lew oiling, ho held
out more and more with each deposit, un

After the Inauguration of Governor Mor

until at the time the exposure was made It
amounted to only Sl,i. Dining thu twen
ty-two months under Uoernor I.uwelllng
ho paid Into the treasury but 0,300, while
In less than four mouths tinder .Morrill he

were ptaetlcally tho same. It Is evident
that since tho ltepubllc.uiH came Into pow ti

Colonel Wells II. Ulodgelt, general solicitor
for the Wnb.iHh; Judge O. M. Spencer, gen
eral solicitor for tho Durllngton, and Alex
G. Cochran, general solicitor for tho Mts
fourl Puclllc. ttrilvt.it In Jefferson City this
motnlng. They came to take a hand In the
light ugalust n rallioad fellow servants
bill. It is, perhaps, unnecessary to state
tli.it the uppoarunco of theso distinguished
lobbyists produced something uMn to a
stampede niiiong Missouri's lawmakers,
and the sennto ptoccedod to do u most re-
marKiiuio thing. This special session was
called, ostensibly at least, to wngo war,
bitter and relentless, upon tho lobby which
has so curiuptt-il leglslalutos In tho past,
to enact u law to tuotect pnmloven of mil.
ro.uls mill framo an honest elections bill.
Yesterday tho Democi title Honttlo stran
gled tho life out ot Yeagcr's nntl-lobby bill,
and set 2 o'clock this afternoon as a hiipcI.iI
hour for the consideration of tho fellow
servants hill leported by tho labor com
mltteo. Presto! Messrs, Illodgctt, Cochran
and Silencer put In nil appeanince. What
does the senate? It postpones notion on
fellow servant legislation until tho lobby
can bo heard. Not Tuesday nt 3 o'clock Is
now the special hour. Messrs. lllodgett,
Cochran and Spencer had seen Governor
Stono In tho morning, and a tip hnd been
given out. The sennto wanted to investi
gate the tip. JCovv, If that anti-lobby bill
had been mauled Into u l.ivv yestoid.iy,
these gentlemen could not have called upon
the governor and discussed tho pending
measure without being amenable, to line
and linpilsonincnt, and the semito would
not have adjourned to accommodate these
gentlemen of tho lobby, but that Is another
matter. Sutllco It to say that tho tin
given out was that Messrs. Dlodgett, Coch
ran and Spencer had Induced Governor
Stono to change his mind and mi enlarge
tho pow ets of the general assembly ns to
allow It to pass a "geneial" servants bill.
This is exactly what tho henato wanted.
Henco tho postponement nnd adjournment.
Governor Stone has said with his own
mouth, fiom which much has been quoted,
that ho would sign a general seivants bill
as soon ns he could dip his pen In ink. If
tho general nssembly would pass It. IIo
did 'not Incorpmate a suggestion lor a gen.
oral bill in his tnll lor an oxtia session
because ho did not believe It would bo
passed It Is also Known that representa
tives ot the Wabash and tho Ilurllngton
roads agreed to not oppose a gem-mi bill.
It Is to get the governor and legislature to
abandon tho i.illio.ul only Idea, and to take
up :i general bill, If any, that the acute
iepiesintatlves of tho tliico big toads men
tion) d ate here.
Senator Peers has n Mihstltuto for the
i.illio.ul bill lepoited by the labor commit
up. It Is a geneial bill, anil contains an
Insuiance sehumo as well. Tills substitute
suits tho inllrouils, so Judge lllodgett s-avs,
and It undoubtedly suits a majority of the
Demoet.itli' senate. Whethei It will suit
tile Itepilbllo.iu hnun Is another inattoi.
It is more than likely that that body will
hold Governor Stone to tin- limits of ids
call for an extra session. Tho Republicans

Jefferson City Mo., May 9. (Special.)
Theio was a goodly audience before the
labor committee when tho railroad attor
neys appealed to present their caso to
night. Senatur Davisson, of Harrison,
made a vlgoious ptotest against allowing
tho gentlemen to speak, but ho was out
voted, and Mr. Cocluan began his argu
ment, it was a. magnllleent and masterly
plea for his sldo of the case.
Milling to C'omproiiiUo.
He said tllo railroads vveio willing to com
promise. They did not think any kind of
fellow set v ant legislation was fair, but
ihej were willing to make concessions. If
tlio bill would bo made to nnno.il to nil
huzitdous enterprises, they would not op
pose It. Ho then said the rallioads woret
willing to tako tho Peeis substitute, with
one ptovlsloii to be Insetted In section 1.
This Is tho proviso; "Provided, however,
that no seivunt who may bo Injured by
the negligence of a fellow servant shall
have a right to recover for, or on ac
count ot such Injuries; If, at tlio time such
Injuries ate Inclined, there exists any con
tract or arrangement cither mado directly
by said servant with his employer or by
anyone else with said employer, In tho In
tel est or for the benefit ot said setvant,
wheieby the sole nnd unlimited right of his
cmploviii' to discharge, suspend, retain or
reinstate said servant Is In any way lim
ited, controlled or restricted,"
'J In. Peers SiilMltute In l'lill.
Here is the Piers substitute as It now
stands, Mi. Cochran's proposed proviso
Is to be Inserted in lieu ut the proviso in
the first section ;
lie It enacted by the general assembly
of the statu of Missouri, as follows:
Section 1. In nnv action lor damages

JelTerson Cits-, Mo.. May 9. (Special )
In the house tills morning S.irtln, of Pon
ton, Introduced a resolution providing that
w-horens: tho senate, a Democratic body,
supposed to volco tho sentiments ot the
governor, had, by a decisive vote, refused
to order to engrossment n bill looking to
ward tho curtailment of the power ot th
lobby, that it bo the sense ot the house
that nil nntl-lobby legislation pending In
tho house bo laid upon the table.
Davis, of Taney, ...rfwed n. substitute
even moro sarcastic In, tin wording, but
ptovldlng for tho same result. This Is Mr.
Wheieas, Among the extraordinary po
litical questions presented to this oxtraor
dlnaty political session, by an extraordi
nary political gov et nor, for the purposes,
the governor says, of putting the Demo
cratic patty on top, Is tho question of an
untl-lobby bill: and
Whereas, The governor's, per-on.-il repre
sentative in the senate Introduced a hill
which rellootod tho views ot tho governor
as an nntl-lobby bill; and
Whereas, On the Mb d.iv of May. S9"i,
tho Democratic sttnto of the once Demo
cratic state of Missouri, in evtraordlnary
session assembled, und. r nn extraordinary
proclamation from an extraordinary Dem
ocratic governor, lefnscil to engross the
oxtraoidin.iry nntl-lobby bill Introduced bv
the senator from Pottls county, who Is the
peison.il lepre.sentatlvo of the governor;
Whereas, It Is evident from the discus
sions In tho Demon. itlo senate on said
nutl-labby bill, and from tho vote thereon
on tho 8th dny of May. IVTi. tii.it the senate
will never pass tho nntl-lobby bill, believ
ing, possibly, thete Is no piluclple Involved
In It: and
Wheieas. It costs tho taxpayers of tho
state of Missouri about $I,1"0 per dav tn
keep this e.xtr.iotdln.uy session assembled
under tho extruordlnuiy call of the cx
trnotdluiiry governor, to legislate on ox
tiaordlnmy subjects, for gieat extraordi
nary inimical purposes) alone. In which,
probably, there Is no principle involved;
thotefoie, bo It
Itei-oHed, That It Is the sense ot this
house that It is Inexpedient, imwlo nnd
too expensive to spend further time In
these Democratic hard times, endeavoring
tu legislate on nntl-lobby bills, which can
never pass n Democratic senate, nnd all
such bills row pending In tho house should
receive no further cousldeiiitlnn

Well, then, it's because yon

Washington, May 9 (Sped il ) Mr. Her

Interview In a local paper ns follows:
"duvet nor Stone Is after Senator George
Gtithatn Vest's scalp. Tlin gov ei nor has
already opened his campaign for tho scmi
lorslilp, und Is making n lively light. It Is
understood ho will make a grand tour of
tho state, speaking In nil tho towns and

Is Vest, feir that matter. It will bo an In
teiestlng mutest, lloth men mo for fieo

tho gieatest Interest. Jt Is not Improbable
that the governor and the senator will en.
gage In n sotlcs of Joint debates, in which
event the fur villi surely lly In tho liveliest
kind ot milliner."
Senator Visl was shown tho statement
to-night, nnd nn Inqiiliy mado of him with
a view of finding out If any au.ingetuont.s

Implesslon wns gained that the subject was
not foiclgu tn him, mid that In some way
his attention hud been called to It before.
Theio was no intimation that such n plan
bad he-en agtccd upon as between the two
statesmen, but a suggestion was 111.1eloth.it
It might be mole ttpptopilalo for a series

the SPiintor could onjov nn engagement ol

Sin rranciseo, May 9 According to Ha
waiian ndviecs leeeived to-day from Hon
olulu, dated Mav 2, via Steamer Mari
posa, the letter demanding the recall of
.Minister Thiiistoii from the United States
was rend to the executive) session of tho
councils .May 1. It had boon to Hong Kong,
having gone past Honolulu In a llug with a
couple of hundred othets. The fault IleVs
Willi the postotllee at Snn I'ranclseo.
The objei tlon to Thmston was that he,
at the legation, showed tn reporters private
letters to himself from Honolulu. Tho pir
tlculnr letter that gave- such offense to the
I'nlted Slates .seen tarv nf state. Intimated
in stiong tot ins that President Cleveluid
and Secret. uy Grehnm wete hugely re
sponsible for the Jami-uy uprising in
Hawaii. .Mr, Gtoshani spoke to tho Hawaii
an minister about the matter. .Mr. Thurs
ton said th it hi- logr.tted It veiy much,
that In the hurry of handling .1 big mall,
ho had shown this letter with others with
out any sped il Intent In short he apnlo-
1 glsed. Mr (Iresh.im thereupon asked that
the tipologv l submltt. d In writing. Mr
Thiiistoii doe lined to do this.
Mi. Glesli.un's letter is dated I'ebnnry
-I and 111 stioug laiigii ige state el that .Ml
Thurston was no longer peisuualy ne
e.ptablo to the administration at Wash
ington as Hawaii 111 minister.
It is definitely settled that .Mr. Thurston
will not return to Washington, lie has
iislgned his olllce, to take ofteet when his
sin lessor shall hive- boon appointed. IJ
ttemlsts urge that he be sent back at oiu o
in older to f,uu .Mr. Gresham again, but
tho conservative ftollug Is that the rel 1
tlons ot this government to th.it ot Wash
ington should bo left to adjust themselves
lu .1 u ituial way.
I-'iank Hastings, who is at present In
charge of the Hawaiian legation, will prob
ably be promoted to the position of mln
isttr. No ret.illatotv measures will n.-
taken by the government, so a . ablnot nf
lleer states, and .Minlstei Willis will r. -main
In Hawaii so far as anything the nt
llti lis on this side may do or say to him.
Tho trlends of Thmston are Inillgn nit
because the say that hn was betray .-.I by
an agent nt tne tnnoil Press in Washing
ton, whom ho ppimlttp.l to road private
coiiospondoiHe Hum Honolulu for the pur
pose of miking himself familiar with the
situation theie and whom ho Instructed to
publish nothing which rolled, l 011 the
government, ns it might rellect on his old-e-Ial
position. This agent told Mr. Gresham
about the le tier.
The feeling of tho government hero Is
that Mr. Thurston was Justified In Inform
ing tho American public of the iltuitlon
lu Hawaii, Inasmuch as Mr. Gresham, lu
tho beginning, give to tho piess material
without consulting Mr. Thurston. It Is
said this wns noticeable, too, In Mr,
mount's matter, when Mr. Gresham, with
out lnfm tiling .Mr. Thurston of the receipt
of tho report, wtote a letter regaidlng tho
Hawaiian government without asking for
any explanation whatever. Mr. Thurston
made .1 nubile renlv. but nt that tinm xir
Gresham did not take tho matter of sucn
publication up or ask for Mr, Thurston's
