Topeka, Kas Aug, 9. (Special.) Report
comes to Topeka of a lively scrap re
cently had between O, K, l'rather, editor
of the Merldcn Ledger, and F, A, Holllngs
worth, editor ot tho Merldcn Tribune, Hoi.
llngsworlh's paper spoko slightingly last
week of a special pictorial edition recently
Issued by the Ledger, and also contained
Mime statements reflecting upon Kdltor
l'rather, which tho latter did not relish,
llolllngsworth was passing: the Ledger
olllce tho other day, when l'rather called
him in nnd gave liim a tongue lashing for
tho publication, Holllngsworth retorted In
kind and the two men quickly en mo to
blows, After ussertlng that his rival had
spoken disrespectfully of his mother, Hoi
llngsworth punched l'rather In the mouth,
when both went to the floor and com
menced a good, old-fashioned rough-and-tumblo
tight. When the city marshal ar
rived on the scene both men weru still
down, clawing and punching each other,
though l'rather was on top and teemed to
have u little the best of the light. Jloth
men were placed under arrest und each
bought a continuance of his trial, while
he recuperated from damages received.

ALMOST A WAR WITH JAPAN.
United Mate Narrowly I'.ci.pod n Conlllot
With the Yinihrr of tho Orient Ovor
tlui ltlght of Search.
Vnshlngton, Auk. 0. In tho event of
n. war between Kussla nml Jnpaii, the
United StateB may Unci Itself an un
willing party thereto, iinlcax Japan re
trcatM from a position which she ns
sumed toward the United .States during;
the progress of tho Inst war with China.
It Is not generally known that just be
fore the declaration of tho armistice
which preceded tho signature of the
treaty of peace an Issue had grown up
between the United States and Jnpan
thnt threatened to lead to actual hos
tilities between the two countries and
that a hostile clash was perhaps only
averted by the conclusion of tho Chinese
war. This issue arose through the as
sertion by the Japanese authorities of
tho rght of search of American vessels.
They insisted that they had the right
to board an American vessel nnd If they
chose to take from her any Chinese or
nny enemy they might Und. even though
thoy wore passengers. Minister Bun
promptly denied the existence of such
rights on the part of a combatant, nnd
a hot correspondence ensued. Tho
Japanese Insisted on their right, and
even when Mr. Dun reminded them that
the United States hud gone to war with
Croat Uiltalu on just this Issue and
forced the abandonment of any claim to
such a. right they refused to abate their
pretensions one jot, though the minister
Intimated that tho llrst assertion of
such a right would bo regarded by the
United States as an unfriendly act and
therefore likely to lead to war. Tho
matter progressed to that perilous state
that when Admiral Carpenter was nbout
to escort an American merchant steam
ship out of a Japanese port to prevent
her detention by the Japanese the latter.
It Is said, gave orders to the shore
batteries at the mouth of the harbor
to lire upon the American naval vessels
if they attempted to do so. This fact
came out after the conclusion of the
nrmistlco, which fortunately occurred at
this point In the negotiations, thereby
preventing an Incident that would cer
tainly hnvo led to war. Hut the signifi
cant point is that since that time the
Jnpaneso have steadily clung to tho
same contention, promising serious
trouble In tho event of another war in

Said of Pii.tinmter tlen-
W.ishlnglon. Aug. 9. There Is much
speculation as In who 1ll bo President
Cleveland's choice for tho t'nllod States
supreme court bench to succeed the late
Justice Jnckson, but beyond tho mention
ot available names there Is little of a
definite nntiiro thus onrly.
There are persons, however, whoe rela
tions with the president nro of the cloiost
character, who believe that Mr. Cleve
land's llrst choice will be Mr. Olney, tho
secretary of state. It Is known that ho
places Implicit confidence in the sound
ness of Mr. Olney's opinions on all Im
portant legal question which come before
hltn, nhil that he fully appreciates tho
grout assistance Mr, Olney has rendered
hi in In the disposition of the groat ques
tions that have arisen, during the
last two years. Whether Mr, Olney's
residence In MUssaciliiiottfl will render
him unavailable Is not known, but It Is
the opinion nf many well Informed persons
here that but for this objection ho would
surely be the man. Next to him Mr. Itu
fits reckham Is thought by many to be
the most likely to receive the nomination.
The question of confirmation will not bo
raised, It Is said, as In tho canes of Wheel
er and I'eckham and Hornblower.
It Is the geneinl understanding that no
appointment will bo made until after tho
meeting of congress, ns the place Is one of
too much importance and dignity for a
recess appointment to go on the bench
nnd take the chances of subsequent re
jection by the senate. There has been no
case In the recent history of the country
where an appointment has boon made to
the supremo bench during a congressional
It is suggested that the selection Is
most likely to be made from the K.ist.
and probably from New York, as Mr.
Cleveland made the last appointment that
ot Justice White from the South, after
the senate hud j ejected the names ot
Hornblower and Pcckham, both of New
York. When the serious Illness of Jus
tice Jackson was first iinnouneod Inst
spring, gossip mentioned the name ot Mr.
Hlssell, then In the cabinet, us the prob
able successor. The same suggestion is
heard sit the present time. As Is usual
when an Important place Is to be lllleil,
the name of Secretary Carlisle Is men
tlouod, but tho general opinion Is that
should Mr. Cleveland go to his cabinet
for an appointee he Is more likely to con
sider Mr. Wilson or Mr. Smith. The name
of Representative Patterson, of Tennessee,
will piobably bo called to the attention of
the president, ns he comes from tho state
of itho late justice and Is known as a
most loyul friend of Mr. Cleveland. The
names of Dun M. Dickinson and Solicitor
(ieneral Holmes Conrad are also men
tioned. Senator I.IiiiIhii.v'm Claim.
Cincinnati. O.. Aug. 9. The Times-Star's
speoial from Frankfort, ICy.. says that
Senator William Lindsay will be pressed
for the supremo bench, to succeed Justice
Jackson anil that Secretary Carlisle will
then be re-elected to the senate. In this
city there is a movement for the appoint

Secretary Morton Is Arranging to Secure

Washington, Aug. 9. (Special.) Sec
retary Morton Is getting ready to tackle
ficrmany with the hope of breaking Into
that country with American beef. Ho
does not like to have it said that his
predecessor succeeded in that country
and started a growing market for our
meat product. It has become some
thing of a personal mutter with Mr.
Morton nnd ho has concluded that lie
may be able to do something with the
fierman government by reason of the
now quarantine law that goes Into ef
fect In that country October 1. This
law places it in the power of the
chancellor of the empire to admit beef
products If ho so desires and ho can
nlso shut outi other things besides beef,
but Mr. .Morton thinks he has discovered
an opening to enable him to make an
arrangemuiit to admit American beef
product. He tins sent to his personal
friend and confidential adviser, Colonel
Mattes, of Nebraska, who was dis
patched to Germany by tho department
with instructions as to what ho wants
done. Colonel Mattes Is deputy consul
general nnd stands close to Ambassador
Hunyon when bo should chunce to bo
in Herlin, and heiice his selection to
usslat Mr. Morton In recovering the
business lost to the agricultural In
terests of the United States soon after
the Incoming of the present administra
tion, It is well known thnt Secretary
Morton nt one time was very much dis
satlsiied with the lack of attention given
this matter by tho state department,
but It Is now stated that Secrotnry
Olney indicates that ho is willing to aid
tho department In bringing Oermuny to

llrlstow, secrotnry or the Itcpiiblleuu state
central committee, has received icsponses
from nearly all tho members ot the com
nilttoe, and u full mooting Is assured for
not Tuesday, It seems to be aslioil that
the committee will not call it state conven
tion for the nomination of a candidate for
chief Justice, but It will recommend that
Chief Justice Martin, against whom there
appears to be no rival, bo nominated by
petition In such h manner that he will be
known as the Itopuhlleun nominee for the
place. Probably this will be accomplished
by securing the signatures of nil county
central committeemen to the petition, iih
well as those ot other prominent party
There has been a loud demand on the
part of the press for a slate convention,
but It appears to fall upon deaf oars so far
(is the state committee Is concerned. The
opponents of a Convention advance three
reasons for their opposition. The llrst Is
that It will bo mi unnecessary expense;
the second Is that It will precipitate a light
on the financial question, and the third Is
that the opponents of the ptesent admin
istration would seize upon the opportunity
to make a row. Speaking to the last rea
son a prominent itepiildlcan said to-day:
"I don't believe nny considerable number
of Kansas Itepiibllcntis are coming to a
convention simply to make a ro.ir. If there
me any gio.it number ot tho boys who be
lieve they are entitled to a roar they might
as well be given a chance to roar now as
lo roar later. It might lie wise to tlnd nut
Just how many of them nelleve thoy hae
a right I" kick at tills adinlnlstratlnu. U
this administration Isn't doing business in
a manner to suit the majority of the par
ty, the ailnilnlstr.illnn has n right to know
what the objections are. I believe the ma
Jotlly nf the Itepiibllcans nf Kansas pos
m'i.s what Is known as idd-faslitoued, com
mon horse sense, mid that thoie Is not tlei
slightest danger of their raising a paity
distill banco over any proposition. If Hie
silver men aro In the majority In the par
ty, they have a perfect right to so express
themselves in convention, and I believe
that a convention called now would slop
all this blekeilng going on over tlnanee
by uniting us ,u some eoniiuou ground
upon which nil icnsoiinhlc party men
could contentedly stand."
Chairman Lejaud says ho has no further
Interest ill the question than lo determine
and obev the wishes of tho p.irtv la the
state. So lung as there Is nut one candi
date In the Held, however, he pcmm.illy
o.m i'y- no reason for a state e invention.
Twice In the history of Kansas a supremo
court iustloo has boon nominated without

t'ltltndf Iphl.t. Aug. IL-Cnptnlu Sproiile. of
the steamer Capa, who last night limited
the survivor of Mm Prince Ose.ir disaster,
had another Ktatlllng story lo tell to-day.
It concerned the nlleR.d murder of Captain
IVter Stegor, of tho American bark tldwnrd
Sklntior, by four unknown mumen, near a
South American port. The uppoed miir
diurs escaped on a stolen Vesel and It ts
billevod perished In a tnrm which de
stliiyed the vessel, near lllo .lanelio.
The Skinner put In at Topmast, a small
iHirt on the wente! n oo.ut of Peru, (in the
nlghl of June Si. There wore a few other
foiolKii and coastwise vessel" 111 the harbor
at tho lime, tho crow of most of which
had gone ashore. The following day Cap
lain Stoger mot tho other visiting mariners
on shote, who w-ie from American, Un
gllsh. Spanish and Norwegian bulk".
A parly, Including captain Stoger and
four seamen, whore name are not known,
I' ft on July 1 for Lake lloyes to hunt seals.
Throe or the men belonged to the American
b.irk, John 'ratio. After an absence of
throe days, the men who had accompanied
the skipper return, d without him. and pro
fessed ignorance ot his whereabouts. Snli
serinelitiy, however, one of the men. while
under the Inlluenco nf llipior. said that
Captain Sieger had fallen overboard Into
Lake ltoyes and was diownoil. This did nut
satisfy the missing captain's friends and a
seatchlug party was organized. After
much dlllloulty they discovered Stoger'
mutilated body In a clump ot brushwood.
It was apparent that li" had been mur
dered, and a hasty return was made to
capture the guilty men Thoy wore too late
for, upon their return, It was learned that
the four men had seized Iho Crapo and pat
to sea. The Minster of th" Crapo was
obliged to embark on another vessel for a
more extreme southern port, and when on
route to Hlo Janeiro the charred hull of
the Crapo was discovered In the ocean. It
hud been burned to the water's edge, either
by accident or design, but there wore no
signs of life, and It ts believed that the fu
