California for hi- health. When asked in
reference to the rumors of a pending recon
ciliation with Archbishop Corrigan and the
Vatican He said : "The rumors, though in
some sense true, are a little strong

a discussion of the trouble between
Cardinal Stmeoui and the Archbishop, if
not with the I'ope. The belief and feeling
is gaining ground that I have been wrongly
treated. The clergy and laity, I now be

Results Growing Out of the Great Eignt-
CHICAGO, May ll. — The settlement of the
carpenters' strike puts new life into all
mercantile engagements, and has created a
healthier, firmer feeling, and larger rates in
all commercial business during the past
week. With the prospect of an early settle
ment in all the labor circles as to eight
hours per day for the laboring classes,
bosses and merchants feel SHfe in entering
into large contracts, and a better feeliug
prevails between employers ami employes.
The internal trouble in labor unions lie
ooiues more si-riom, as facts regarding
treasonable conduct on the part of certaiu
trusted and higli-~>tauiling officials on the
Striking Committee becomes known. It Is
not likely, however, that a disruption of
any organized body in labor circles will bo
the coiiM-Qiience ol this exposure.
To-day the branches of the Cloak-makers'
Union held a meeting, »t which several
hundred women were prebent. and a com
mittee was appoiuted to wait upon the
manufacturers and demand a raise iv
prices on garments. Should their demands
be refused, it is probable that a strike will

Tlie Culinary Alliance strike Is in such a

the meantime they will thoroughly organ

CARLISLE LOSING STRENGTH.
His Chances o! Getting the Kentucky
Senatorsirip Growing Smaller.
Fisaxkfokt, May 11.— That Mr. Carlisle
has lost strength since yesterday is un
deniable, and bis friends have changed their
tactics. The plan of campaign was to insist
that Carlisle was entitled to the Senator
ship against any cue. and. that
his nomination was assured after
complimentary votes to McCreary, Lindsay
ami Knott. At the caucus to-morrow even
ing it is expected that balloting wiil begin—
an an organization was perfected— at - tno
beginning of the session.
Judge Milligao of Lexington will nom
inate Carlisle, Senator Writ; lit will nom
inate Judge Lindsay, and Dick Warren of
Lincoln will present the name of Mc-
Creary. It is not believed that George
Buckuer will be put in nomination
to-morrow, but if his friends desire to enter
him, his name will be presented by Arthur
Wallace of Louisville. - There is no material
change in the race. McCreary is still forc
ing the lighting with Carlisle.

Paris, May 11.— While Dahomey is to

ou Tonquin, for which Jules Ferry has con
tributed a long preface. "I am proud," de
clares the ex-Premier, "of the title of 'Ton
kinois,' with which my enemies and idiots
think to insult me." Ferry explains that
the Tonquin expedition cost only 334,H00,0<J0
francs, and not milliards as is uem'tally
slated, and that the loss of French blood
was grossly exaggerated. The conclusion
-to whioh he comes is that the French occu

All the ercat powers of Europe are coloniz

A TfcAKFUL FaKKWELL,
KaT. J. A. Crozin Tarts From the Third
Rev. J. A. Crujan lust night closed his
very successful ministry to the Third Cou
gregational Church. The auditorium was
crowded with worshipers, and there were
many in the usually half empty gallery. The
pulpit platform was chastely decorated with
lilies and glistening green leaves.
As appropriate to the occasion, the de
parting pastor read St. Paul's farewell to
the Ephesians. ilia voice trembled as he
tittered the great preacher's words of warn
ing and sorrowful farewell to thu people of
the forgotteu metropolis of Asia Minor,
and he choso three of the strongest verses
as the text for his sermon.
Mr. Cruzan made no attempt to reckon up
the sum total of his labors. There wan not
a word said about the progress of the
churcn during liis pastorate, lie said he
had something inure Interesting to give his
hearers than cold and perhaps ineaniugless
statistics. He did not believe that a pastor's
labors could be expressed in figures.
Paul's farewell, lie said, was uttered in a
great city, aud lie and his co-workers al
ways strove to plant the church In some
great center of population. They did this
because the great city is the heart of the

Fatal Railroad Accident.
Special by tbe California Associated Press.
Sachamento, May 11— The late storm
causea a slight discomfiture on the railroad
line through the Sierras. Snow fell in fitful
showers during Saturday and Saturday
night and also this forenoon. There was
about two feet of Iresh snow on the top of
the old bard snow which has laid on
the mountains all winter. The push-plow
which is housed at Summit was sent down
through the Cascade cut several times this
forenoon in order to Keep the tracks clear.
Although several freight trains were de
layed somewhat, none of the passenger
trains lost any time.
Shortly before 3 o'clock this morning a
snow-slide occurred just east of Tunnel l.'i,
half way between Summit and Truckee,
and broke down sixty feet of snow-sheds.
The wrecking train was quickly on the
ground, however, aud the track was clear
in time for trains to pass ou time.
Though the rain has caused many streams
near the various branches of the railroad
to bftiiiuo threateuiug, no washouts nor
breaks have been reported. The water has
become rather high around Davisville, and
the tracks are being closely watched
for breaks, but unless more rain should
come, or a heavy wind should spring up, it
is not thought that the tracks will suffer
