Estimate of the President and Ex
President Farther as to That Cleve
BOSTON, April 24. The Herald prints
long interview with Hon. J. S. Clark
On, president-elect of the Republican
league. -Mr. Clarkson says: "The honor
of leading the Ha
is not of my seek
ing, and I only
assume the presi
dency because my
f rieuds have made
it seem to be the
proper thing to
Jo. The failure of
young men to par
ticipate in politics
is a weakness of
party in .eiv tntj
land. 1 believe the
out-generaled its Republican opponents
in that respec-f. They have as lend
ers the sous nf Republicanism. The Re
publican party must utilize their young
mem I iini glad to see the Republicans
of New Kcinnd organized against the
mercenary clement in politics. Roger
Walcott, the president oJ your new Re
publican club, sent out an epigram which,
I beiieve.wiiido missionary work through
oat the country when he said: 'We must
drum out the mercenaries and rally the
recruit. This is the line of life for the
Free Trade and Reriprority.
Mr. Clarkson defined reciprocity as op
tional free trade, and said that the Re
publican party favors limited reciprocity
and the Democratic partv universal reci
procity. He thought the McKinley bill
would grow in popularity -when fully un
derstood and fairly illustrated to every
community. ' I have no personal choice
for president' said Mr. Clarkson. "Time
will indicate the man. If the silver ques
tion is settled the situation will be greatly
cleared. Theseatof Republican power, the
west, will never consent tosee the treasures
of the coun.ry dwarfed to a gold basin.
The west will not consent to any candi
date or any platform that will not repre
sent the doi.ble standard idea, aud the
greater part will not consent to a platform
that will not represent silver as money by
the coinage of the American proiuct."
The Next Republican Cnndldute.
"The iit-xt Republican candidate for
president,-' said Mr. Ciarkson, "must lie
man broad enouirh to cover this broad
land, and be able to administer justice on
all the differing interests with n true re
gard to all national interests. President
Harrison has made a faithful executive
Jo every public sense, and is lacking only
in the personal popularity which gives a
man the power of electricity in politics.
He has demonstrated his qualities fully,
and in ability is not second to anyman
to-day. not even to his phenomenal secre
tary of state. Whoever is the Republican
candidate, most hi n man who can main
tain the solidarity of the party in the
great agricultural regiou of the west.
The candidate must not only be near to
the people, bat must not be far from the
farm. All political partins will go more
Closely to tii'i farm hereafter."
An Opinion of C icveland.
Mr. Clarkson inclined to the belief that
Mr. Clevelacl would be the next Demo
cratic candidate. He said ex-I'resideut
Cleveland was one of the smartest politi
cians that his party has ever had, and the
Republican party has always underesti
mated him in this respect. "To be suc
cessful ia 1892," said Mr. Clarkson, "e
must bring up the Republican newspaper
Circulation to meet that of the Democratic
party in its programme, to c irculate tens
of millions cl arguments direitlv into tro
houses of the voters." Mr. Clarkson will
sail for I'uri ou May C.

Galveston, Tex., April 24 The Daily
Sea Gull i ublishes n interview with
Henry Watterson, who is now in Galves
ton. In answer o questions as to the po
litical outlook, Mr. Watterson said: ' Upon
the line of revenue reform the fight next
year, as in JiSS, will be made. J take it
for granted that we shall have some silver
legislation, but I have no idea that the
Democratic party cau be lured into the
perpetration of so great a blunder as the
advancement of silver to the first place in
the next campaign and the consequent
obscuration of the tariff issue. Ou this
last the party has fully come :.o a perfect

Something More About That Ilecent In
terview Willi Cleveland.
ST. Louis, April 24 State Treasurer
Stephens, who has recently come into na
tional prominence on account of his in
terview with ex President Cleveland, was
seen yesterday and asked if the iuterview
as printed was correct. He replied: "I
did not write a Hue of the iuterview that
appeared in the New York papers, nor
did I see it after it -was written until it
appeared in print. If it had been sub
mitted to mil would have struck out
fully one-half of it. It contained much
that Mr. Cleveland said, but also that he
did not say and if I bad known just what
its tenor was to be I would have removed
many of the embellishments. Mr. Cleve
land spoke as a private citizen. "When I
asked him what be would do in case he
was president and a free coinage bill w:is
presented to him, he laughed, and turned
the question by saying that it was a long
time until 1814, I would prefjr not to
particularize the mistakes in the Account
of my interview with him, further tha l
to state that if it had been submitted t
me I would have struck out about one
half of it." .
Republican League Headquarters.
C'lXCIXNATl, April 24. The old and
new executive committees of the national

dent Clarkson to appoint a sub-committee

established at 202 Fifth avenue. New
York. The general executive committee is

Portland, Ore., April 24. It is report
ed that when Governor Pennoyer was
asked yesterday whether he would go to
the state line to receive the president he
said: "Mr. Harrison represents in his offi
cial capacity the official power and digni
ty of the federal government. I, as gov
ernor of Oregon, represent the state of
Oregon in the same way. We are equal.

homage to him. On the contrary, when
he visits Oregon he should rather pay his
respects .to mo as its official executive""

Washington- Cur, April --. A state

for the first twenty days in April, tSUl,
were $4,771,030, as against S,57(;,0C2 for
the corresponding period cf last year,

These figures are attractin::nuch at

Secretary Foster, especially, is studying
them with n view of forming an idea
whether the receipts from customs are
likely to continue to decrease, or whether
the decrease is caused by spasmodic con

receipts also declined, bat not ia such a

Arrests Made Tearing Up the Railway
Track More Bloodshed in the Coke
Region A Woman Again the Victim.
Deteoit, April 24. This city is having
an experience of the inevitable rioting in
cident to a strike on the street railways.
The strike began Tuesday and was pre
cipitated by the company discharging a
number of employes w ho were organizing
the men for the purpose of striking at a
later date. This taking of a strike by the
forelock, as it were, was met by the men
leaving their cars almost en masse, and
since then the street car companies, as
well as the police force, have had a hard
road to travel. Riotous demonstrations
were begun as soon as the company put
new men to work. Cars were thrown
from the track, mobs collected about the
barns, and Wednesday night the track
itself was torn up in several places. Six
hundred stove moulders quit work yes
terday to help the strikers prevent rail
way travel, and succeeded admirably.
The Mayor's Own Employes Quit Work.
The climax was capped, however, when
the 1,500 employes of the mayor quit the
big shot factory and marched to the city
hall, headed by their own band, to inform
his honor that they would not do an
other stroke of work until the railway
company gave in. These bodies of men
marched about, the city all day, cheered
by the men aud women who thronged the
( iile walks.
Futile Attempt to Start.
The street car officials decided yester
day afternoon to start running cars for
the evening service on Woodward avenue.
The first car got away all right, followed
ty a patrol wagon containing a number
of officers. A second car st arted immedi
acy after without the protection of the
o Beers, and after proceeding a short dis
tance was thrown on its side and across
the track by the strikers. The attempt to
ri:n cars was then given up. but the first
ct r continued on its course, and finally
reached the river front in safety. On the
return trip a man iu a buggy drove di
re :tly in front of the street car. His
bi ggy was smashed aud he was thrown to
tha ground. After a brief struggle he
was arrested and taken to the station.
Drew a I5ig Revolver.
The car kept on its way and reached its
sthrting point without being further nio
lesred. A cr which had been lyinu at
the river front all day was then started at
breakneck speed up the hill. A mob
coi lposed of at least 10.000 people
clo-ed about the cr ar.d finally succeeded
iu .-.topping it. Hendrie, tha treasurer of
the company, gut up on the platform
with the driver and pulling a big revolver
fro:n his pocket pointed it threateningly
at the crowd. This caused intense ex
citement. Bricks lwgan to Cy through
th ear windows and it looked as if the
car driver, policemen and Hendrie would
be torn to pieces.
Clubs Were Trumps This Time.
Hjndrie's discretion got the better of
his valor and the car was started back to
the river. The crowd pursued it and un
hitching the hor-es tried to run the car
into the river. At this moment a large
fore? of police came up and charging the
crowd clubbed them uumercifully, and
arretted a nnmber cf the ringleaders. No
more, attempts were made to run cars and
the rowd dispersed.
A Threat of the Militia,
Late in the afternoon the mayor issued
a prrciarnation calling npon all citizens
to keep order, and reciting the statute em
powering him to call out the militia in
case .f necessity. Last night small gangs
oftttiikers in various parts of the city
were tearing up the street-car tracks and
building barricades. The police did not
seem able to btop the strikers, who moved
from place to place very rapidly. Late at
night the officials of the street-car com
pany iecided not to attempt to run any
cars t xlay.
ANOTHER WOMAN SHOT.
The Fitfiol Does Some Itloody Work in
the Coke Region.
CONN-ELLIVILLK. Pa., April 24. There
vas a troublous time at Leisenring works
No. 3 yesterday when Sheriff McCormiek
went t here on an eviction tour. The first
to resist the sheriff were Andy Blashko
aud wife. The latter tried to enter her
house after being evicted. The sheriff
repeatly shoved her down the steps and
the h lsband and a mob of women
pounced upon the officer, who opened
lire and wounded Blaskoin the leg. Mar
tin Str ivolik, a tiger-like striker, sprang
upon the sheriff after the crowd dis
persed. McCormiek shot him clean
throngli the face.
A Itnllet for Mrs. lilasliko.
Struvolik retreated, but the crowd reap
peared, and did not run until Mrs. Blashko
had been shot in the thigh and the sheriff
iath- r.nkle. The wounded woman lay
ou the ground fifteen minutes with her
crying children beside her. She was re
moved to her bouse, and when Sheriff Mc
Cormiek entered to learn of her condition
she sprang at. him like a lioness. It re
quired s -veral men to restrain her while
