MRS. JOHN W. MACKAY.
Why Slip Offers $1000 for (lie
Arrest of Her Libelera.
What is the meaning of the really remark
able sJories recently put in circulation about
Mrs. John W. Mack ij .'
Is there some spit in . malicious or envi
ous person who is flowing up that lady
beut upon annoying her by the circulation
of stories of a vexatious character? And if
so, what can be tiie motive for such action ?
The above ore questions which are being
repeated; asked of late in society, without
any fully satisfactory reply having as yet
been returned. Friends of the famous
Boniuza Queen answer the latter of the
above questions in the affirmative. Mrs.
Mackay, they aver, lias, owing to her re
fusal to receive or to in any way extend
recognition to a certain Quasi-American fam
ily now* figuring in London society, made
bitter enemies of the members of this fam
ily, to the head of which may more or less
directly be traced the annoying, although
absurd, stories in question.
These stories consist for the most part of
allegations to the effect that at some indefi
nite period in the past Mrs.' Mackay earned
a livelihood by some form of toil, and the
incident is referred to as a species of re
proach upon her cliaracter, amounting to
lilt c short of a crime The stories differ
widely in their respective d. tails. In* some
she is described as having taught a rural
school, in others it is detailed that she main
tained a boarding-house, and in others again
it is solemly averred, with a seriousness
worthy of a" belter cause, that she ran a
laundry. But even these narratives were
baldly Imaginative enough, and the latest
yarns reach even loftier fields of absurdity.
Tlie constant and systematic repetition of
stories of this nature appear to have exerted
at last an irritating offe- tup»n Mrs. Mackay,
and she h.i- offered a reward of £1000 for the
arrest nnd convl tion of her annoyers. Just
why Mrs. Mackay. should be annoyed over
the matter at all is nt tJr-t blush not very
clear, in view of the circumstance that the
stories are generally recognized throughout
the United States as foolish yarns without
any foundation In fact, and the allegations,
even if true, would he regarded more to her
credit than to her detriment Friends of
Mrs. Ma K.iy. however, ;i_:ii:i offer an ex
planation in this respect. They explain that
the enemies of Mrs. ,\| ickay never expected
the stories to gain any ere Ie ice in the United
States, but that the object in view was the
dissemination of the stories abroad, where
ignorance of affairs American prevent tlieir
being received with the same amused guffaw
Unit greets tbem here.
As a matter of fact, tar from h?ing of dis
creditable origin. Mrs. Mackay belongs to a
rather distinguished family. Born in Brook
lyn, she i, the daughter of Colonel Daniel
Uungerford, the descendant of an old
Biooklyn family, who won distinction in the
late war, and whose name is mentioned
in the Comte de Paris's clover history of the
struggle between the North and South. The
Hungerfords arc of English descent, being
descended fiom the Hungerfords of Far-
Americans, as a rule, however, care little
about questions of descent What they ad
mire most in Mrs. Mackay is that she is the
foremost representative oi American woman
hood abroad; that she has won for herself
in Europe an admiration and recognition
never beTore achieved by any other woman
«ho lias over left these shores ; that she, as
a distinctively American society xv. man,
has met European society upon its own
ground, and in two of the greatest capitals
of the Old World, has shown herself to hive
tew equals and no superiors in the line of
social entertainment. With never as much
as a breath of scandal whispered against her,
she has become the most widely known so
cial woman of the two hemispheres. As the
most widely known and popular American
society woman in London, her countrymen
and countrywomen admire ber and wish her
well.— Loudon special to the N. Y. Worid.

Nkw Yobk, Sept. The Stale Board of
Arbitration began an investigation here to
day as to the difficulties existing between the
.New York Central Ballroad and the Knights
of Labor. Third Vice-President Webb of
the New York Central was the first witness,
and said the company had no controversy
with its employes. On the evening of August
Bth a large number of employes left and their
places bad been filled. The alleged cause
was that seventy-eight members out of 20,000
had been discharged. They were discharged
for good cause, but only seven of those men
applied to the company for information as to
why they were discharged. Subsequently a
gentleman .nun another State culled ned

charged. Witness declined to give the rea
sons. This gentleman was Mr. Holland.

men, testified to tin ir efforts to bring about
v settlement of the difficulty oy arbitration.
E. J. Lee introduced a correspondence be
tween himself and Powderly. The latter
advised him to move cautiously, as be was
dealing with a corporation that controlled the
court-. On August 2d. Powderly wrote: "I
regret to hear of the condition of affairs. If
there is to be Trouble it will be when Depew
is away. I advise you to avoid a strike at
all hazards, as the order cannot support you
now. Act on the following suggestions:
Sel'tt from your men such as are good and
reliable," and secure places for them in the
West. Then nave them ask for shorter
hours and higher wages. This the road will
not grant 'then have them quit and take
new places secured for them. Do this se.
cretly, and wait until Depew returns. He
is a Presidential candidate and would not

A DRUMMER BUYS A KISS.
Anil He Shows Blnuall to lie the Menu
em Mm Alive.
The medal for the meanest man no longer
belongs to the individual who turn, the
brick in his sidewalk to save buying new
ones. At one of the Kansas City hotels the
other day, says the Star of that city, a pretty
flaxen-haired, blue-eyed baby girl was play
ing wiih a big Newfoundland dog about the
oflice, when she was Induced to quit her
romping and sit on the lap of a commercial
traveler. Tho traveler amused the baby for
awhile by showing her his watch, key-ring
aud various trinkets; then seeing that the lit
tle one was restless and wanted to"dit down"
be promised to let her go If sho kissel him
first. He was not an atti active mouth and
tim child strongly objected. As final induce
ment, alter much coaxing, the drummer went
down in bis pocket and pulled out a big
Shinning silver dollar and held it before the
baby, with the remark: If you give mo a
kiss you may have this." Such a glittering
oiler as this proved too much, so up went
the Utile mouth, with lips puckered as though
about to receive a dose of medicine, aud
" smack!" and all was over.
" Now 'oo div me the money," said the
baby, holding out both of her chubby little
bands to receive it. Tbo man put the dollar
back in bis pocket and instead fished out a
copper ceut and gave it to the child, with the
remark: "Now go and play with doggy."

around with such rapidity! striking Ihe

Important Matters to Be Con
sidered by the Board.
Benieia Likely to Be Selected as the Site
(or the Ordnance Foundry.
Army and Navy Officers in Favor of the
Location— Providing for Gun and
Special Dispatches to The Mousing Cat,!.
Washington, Sept. The Ordnance
and Fortification Board will convene for its
regular monthly session at the War Depart
ment to-morrow. This will be an impor
tant si ion, as there are many questions in
connection with the new Fortifications Bill
to be considered. Many of the items were
discussed at the last meeting, which was
held in New York, but as the bill had uot
then been approved by the President no
formal action could be taken in the matter
of the allotment of appropriations for con
tinuing the work of gun construction and in
preparing batteries for the reception of guns
One of the first items to be considered is
that providing for gun and mortar batteries
at New York, Boston and San Francisco.
Tbe plans and specifications prepared by
the Engineer Corps for this work will be
placed before the board; also correspond
ence from property-owners and the Mayors
of three cities concerning the sale and dona
tion of sites for Iho erection of these bat
teries. The Secretary of War has also been
giving his personal attention to this matter
during his absence from Washington.
Another matter that will be acted upon at
the meeting is tlio appropriation of $320,000
for procuring boring and turning lathes and
rifle-machine-, nnd an eighty-ton traveling
crane fully equipped lor the manufacture of
twelve-inch guns at the Watervllet Arsenal.
There is a special reason for prompt action
in this particular, as it was one of tlie chief
items of dispute between the conf ernes, and
when it was finally agreed to the dissenting
members cast their votes in favor of it, be
lieving that by the time the machinery was
procured Congress would have decided to
build another gun foundry cither at the Bock
Island Arsenal, 111., or at the Benlcia Ar
senal, Cal., and instead of appropriating
money for the construction of a new wing at
the Watcrvliet Arsenal, necessary for the
erection of this machinery, it would be a
very simple matter to have the machinery
transferred to one of the proposed new gun
San Francisco is making rapid strides in
all matters pertaining to the navy. The
building of such splendid cruisers by the
Union Iron WoiKs is a matter of much
favorable comment around navy headquar
ters, There seems to be no doubt whatever
that the Pacific Coast is to have an ordnance
foundry. The good that will accrue to Pa
cilic Coast people and Californians in par
ticular cannot be overestimated. The only
foundry of this character is at the Watervllet
Arsenal, New Turk, where all kinds of guns
are manufactured, employing hundreds of
men and paying out thousands of dollars an
n ually.and there seems to be hardly any iloabt
but that such an foundry will be
located at Benlcla, Cal. In iiio Committee
on Appropriations Morrow fought bard for
California, Connor of Illinois contended
that Rock Island, 111., should be the place,
and another member favored some point on
the gulf, and in open House Byiium of
Indiana favored Indianapolis. The result of
such a contest was the incorporation of the
following paragraphs In the Fortifications
Bill: "The President of the United States
is hereby authorized to appoint a board to
consist of three officers of the army; one
from the engineers, one from the artillery
and ono from the ordnance, nut below the
rank of Lieutenant-Colonel, who shall in
quire into the facilities for producing steel
forgings for bigb-powei guns, nt or near tho
Pacific Coast, and in the vicinity of the
Rock Island Arsenal, ami at Indianapolis,
and at some point on the gulf, and the
advisability of erecting a gun-factory
at the Benieia Arsenal, Caliloruia, or
at the Rock Island Arsenal, or at
the Indianapolis Arsenal or at some
point on the Oulf coast, for the purpose of
finishing and assembling high power gnus
to be mounted in fortifications."
It will be noticed that the Army Board
is empowered to uso its discretion in choos
ing one of the four sites named, and Benieia
is almost certain of capturing the prize.
Indianapolis, Kock Island and a point on •
the Gulf coast were merely named iv order
to please Bynum. Cannon and tho Southern
member, Benieia is regarded by uavy men
as a place admirably adapted for such an
ordnance foundry. Both Indianapolis and
Bock Island are out of the question, as
neither hive any facilities for water
transportation. The Gulf coast of course
offers belter Inducements than either of tbe
inland cities named, but lit any place in the
United Stales can compare with Benieia
In the opinion of experienced navy men
the defence of San Francisco, Pnget Sound
and San Diego will require many high power
gnus, which can only bo conveniently as
sembled at Benlcia or some other point on
the Pacific Coast, lt would be absurd to
think of transporting such immense guns
overland fiom Indianapolis or Rock Island.
Of course Morrow does not wish to antici
pate the action of the Army Board ap
pointed to choose the site, but lie feels con
silient that Benlcia will be selected.

Hale Offers a Reciprocal Amendment to the
Washington. Sept. This morning
Evarts presented resolutions from the Buf
falo Merchants' Exchange, favoring reci
procity not only with nations to the south,
but also with Canada.
\ The Ilouse bill in relation to lotteries wns
repotted from the Postoffice Committee and
placed on the calendar, with a notification
by Sawyer that he w;ould ask its considera
tion as soon as the Tariff Hill was passed.
Tlio Tariff Bill was then taken up and the
sugar schedule considered.
. Carlisle gave notice that be would move to
strike out all paragraphs relative to sugar
7 Hale offered a reciprocity aniejdinen', of
which he bad given notice on th • 19th of
dime, and addressed the Senate upon it.
The desira' iii'.y of such interchange of
products as the amendment proposed, he
said, had been a subject which had given
rise to the closest attention, and bad result
ed in grave and pertinent suggestions Ifroin
eminent public men of the United States
during the last thirty years. Whoever bad
seen the gradual falling off of American
trade with Central and South America and
the isles of the s-a must have witnessed
those conditions with the greatest impatience.
The people of all those countries had com
mon interest with the people of the United
States. Alluding to the lato Pan-American
Congress, Hale said it proved that the same
considerations which had their influence in
the United States were also moving in the
minds of eminent men from the sister re
publics who took part in the proceedings of
that congress, and they pointed to one sure,
inevitable end, the increase of trade between
the United States and Uiose people. Th so
considerations, which applied to an exten
sion of trade and an increase in the inter
change of products, applied not only to the
nations of Centra] and South America, but to
the islands of the Spanish Main.
Hale assured the Senators who repre
sented the sorghum and beet-sugar districts
that be was not in antagonism with them. If
these Senators objected to the policy of
tryii to secure some benefits from those
countries for the repeal of the duty ou tlieir
sugar, be asked them bow much more they
ought to object to the unreserved repeal of
those duties. It would be, he declared, a
policy not modi short of lunacy to repeal
the sugar duties unless the repeal was used
to obtain some benefits for the products of
American labor. To him one thing was as
sure as the tide*, and sunrise, and that was,
that the policy suggested by the President
and Secretary of Stale, and which had se
cured the attention and approval of the
wisest statesmen in the last thirty years, was
a policy that had come to stay, with the
American people. There never was a time
more fitted to try the plan or experiment
than now. and to his mind the amendment
which he offered was the most fitting solu
tion of the question.
Allison made a long statement of the re
ceipts and expenditures of the Government,
and the probable effect of the Tariff Dill on
the finances. He said the total expenditures
for the current fiscal year wonld he about
1411,000,000, and the total revenues, including
postal receipts and everything, would be
8460,000,000. If there were no "tariff bill to
be i assed, and if the situation remained un
changed, there would be a surplus of rev
enue over expenditures for Ihe current liscal
year of 54.000.000. He had not included in
ttie expenditures the amount that would be
paid for silver, or claims against the Govern
ment other than those which have passed Con
gress. He figured out an increase »f $27,000,
--000 of revenue under tie pending bill as
against a decrease of $60,600,000 from putting
sugar and other articles on the free list,
so that £33.500,t'00 had to be taken
off from tho surplus of £-10,000,000. leaving
some 815,000, surplus at tho end of the
year, paying nothing on the sinking fund.
Taking into account iho balance now in the
treasury (8107,000.000) and with this sur
plus, Allison calculated the Secretary of the
Treasury would havo $78,000,000 on the lst
of duly, 1891, unless in the meantime he re
deemed the 4% per eentibonds. as be (Alli
son) hoped the Secretary would proceed to
do without delay. He declared that in his
judgment it was a wise thing to take off the
sugar duties. He had not the slightest fear
that there would be any danger from it to
the treasury— not within several
years to come. He was also in favor of a
further extension of reciprocal trade, but
honed that in the event of any such arrange
ment it would be been that the United States
had its just share of the bargain.
Gibson offered an amendment to the sugar
schedule by adding the words "syrup of
beet, sorghum or sugarcane." He made an
argument against ;tbe sugar-bounty propo
sition, and said it was a miserable dwin
dling away from Blame's broad and gener
ous proposition of lull reciprocity.
Sherman expressed his views on the sub
ject of reciprocity, and spoke of the difii
culties in the way of reciprocity by treaty.
The first proposition of Hale's amendment
was almost a startling one. It authorized
the President of the United States, without
further legislation, to declare the ports of
the United States free and open to all prod
ucts of any nation of the American hemis
phere upon which no export duties are im
posed. Was Cuba, he asked, ii nation .' He
knew Senator Hale said to-day that he
-meant- to Include Cuba, V-^rt -v*s Canada
embraced In that list of. nation*? lie
had asked the Senator that question and the i
Senator had replied, "No, .no;" and yet If -'
Congress required trade arrangements made"
Willi any country, they ought to be mad*
with Canada. He went on to criticize un
favorably Hale's amendment as ono tii-it
would allow the free impi.rtatlou of wool,
copper, zinc, iron, gold, silv-T, lead 010-1,
etc.; but was informed by Hale that tne
amendment had not been carefully drawn,
but was simply intended to propose the
principle of reciprocity. His own amend
ment hud been intended to apply to only
three or four article.— sugar, coffee, rubber
He was reminded by Sherman that Cuba
produced no coffee and no rubber, so the
arrangement with Cuba could only be as to
the article of sugar.
Hale— lf there is nothing to trade upon
with advantage, then there will lie no trade
made. 'llu plan which I suggested is com
prehensive, but it is not definite. If there is
nothing to make a bargain upon, that settles
Sherman— Jly friend from line is whit
tling down this magnificent theory until
there is nothing of it left.
Spooner suggested an amendment to apply
to Canada, putting a duty ol 10 per cent ad
valorem ou green coffee, and 3 cents a pound
and 10 per cent ad valorem on roast aud
ground coffoe and 10 per cent on tea, these
duties being omitted from the Canadian
A recess was then taken till 8 o'clock.
At the evening session Gibson moved as
a substitute for the sugar schedule the par
agraphs In the existing law imposing duties
Dolph concluded his speech against any
reciprocity with Canada In the matter of
coal, timber or agricultural products.
Vance argued in support of the amend
ment offered by bim reducing the rates of
duly on nil manufactures of steel and iron,
all woolen and cotton goods, earthenware
and glassware and all material used for fer
tilizers when such goods are purchased
abroad by any citizen of the United States
by exchange of American farm products, or
by the proceeds of the sale ot such prod
ucts, He said there would be a surplus this
year of 5,000,000 bales of Cotton, 100,000,000
bushels of wheat and 500,000,000 bushels of
corn. What was to be done with all that
surplus if tlio foreign market was to bo
closed. And yet the American farmer had
beeu told by the venerable Senator from
Vermont (Morrill) that be produced too
much, and that the lemedy was to limit the
production, and ho had been told by the
Senator Irom Connecticut (Hawley) that if
a li'gh wall was maintained around the
United States for fifty years the American
fanner would come out afterward rich and
happy. ; t
The Senate at 10 o'clock adjourned till to
D hita on ths Claytor-Breckinridga Election
Washington, Sept. 2.— ln the nouse this
morning Lacey of lowa called up and the
House proceeded to the consideration of the
Clayton-Breckinridge election case.
Cooper ol Ohio opened the debate, ne
described the state of affairs leading up to
the assassination of Clayton aud said it was
the opinion of the majority that murder
grew directly out of the political methods
adopted iv that country. In that view the
majority echoed tho almost universal senti
ment of all sections. Ballot-box stealing and
Stuffing, Intimidation and murder naturally
followed each other. In conclusion he
passed a high encouium on the people and
State of Arkansas, contending that if the
election methods In vogue in that State were
abandoned, the commonwealth would soon
be alive with industry and manufactures.
Wilson of Missouri joined with the gentle
man from Ohio in his panegyric upon the
people of Arkansas. But he regretted that
the gentleman had only to-day discovered
how* good tho people of Arkansas were ; if
lie had discovered it sooner, he could never
have signed the majority report. . The in
stigator of this investigation was Powell
Clayton, but Powell Clayton was the dead
mail's brother, and while he would say to
Powell Clayton, in the language of the Al
mighty "vengeance is mine, I will repay,"
he could not forget that fact. If Powell
Clayton could divest himself of the influence
of " Poker Jack", McClure, ho would be
himself again and would not pursue Breck
inridge from a motive of vengeance.
The case then went over until to
morrow, and Cannon took the floor In a
statement relative to the appropriations made
by this session of Congress, - .

Eits: The lolloftlng resolution was adopted at
the I .st meeting of this parlor, ana the Secretary
was Instructed to forward a copy ol ihe same to
each of the clly parlors:
Whkbeas, It has come to the knowledge of
this parlor that a local paper has oOered a prize
to li • given to the most popular Native Sou; and
whereas, the glviiiß of said pilze may have been
prompted by tin- best motives, but the rules gov
erning the manner of balloting therefor are cal
culated to bung the name ol the Order of the
Native Sons of the Goldeu West Into disgrace or
ridicule; and whereas, the decision ol the ballots
under the circumstances can in no way show the
people ol the Mate of Callfuruia who Is the most
popular member ol the order; lliere.me on It
Resolved, That Pacific Parlor, No. 10, hereby
pledges itself to u^e its best efforts to prevent
me continuance cd the balloting for -aid prize un
der the circumstances now governing Ihe same.

Whereas. In the Issue ot the San Fraaclsco
Examiner lite 2-Hb of this moulh there ap
pealed au article containing the repre
sentation of a badge to be competed
lor by the members of our order, and to ho
awarded to the member leceivmg the largest
number of votes which weie to Indicate his pop
ularity among bis fellow-members; and wueieas,
the article contained the following language in
dicative of the object to be attained: "to lind
out • * • • which member of the order of
the alive Sods of I lie Goldeu West ls the most
popular, judged by the choice of his fellow-mem
bers," It led us to believe that only those who
were members of ihe order could voe; that In
terpreting tie meaning of the article in that way
we gave to the Examiner that credit winch is
doe; but, whereas, in the Examiner of the
2otn Inst, the statement was made that any one
could vole who so desired, irrespective of mem
bership; and whereas. Id the issue of ilio'-'tltii
the lurther statement was in ule that auy one
could vote Irrespective of membership, sex or
age, and any number ot time", It Is apparent
thai the idea originally announced by the Exam
hoi, viz.: to discover by a vote of the mem
bers the most popular member ot the X. __.
X). XV., has been departed Irom; aud
whereas, it is evident that any member of this
oidei may, by liberal purchases of in Examiner,
announce to an admiring woild that he is an ex
ceedingly popular member of the order; and
whereas, said popularity is only limited by Ihe
in chases of the Examiner, which he and his
friends, political or otherwise, may see fit lo In
dulge In, and thus Hue popularity be handi
capped; and wlierea-, the result of ibe vole
under such circumstances would neither be sat
isfactory io ihu members of our order nor. re- _
dound to Its welfare; and whereas, while we do
not wish to appear uncharitable and accuse
the Examiner of using our order as a means of
advertisement, still It might have that effect, and
as our constitution and by-laws strictly prohibit
the use of our Qrime for ibe purpose of advertis
ing any business of any Kind, aud as we would,
to Hie best of the ability nfa small country par
lor, save the "Monarch of me Dailies" Irom any
such embarrassing accusation, and as an im
mense sal ■ of the Examiner from now uutll too
9th of September would certainly bring upou it
such an accusation; Iheietoro be it
Resolved, That Yoseiuite Parlor, No; 24, X. S.

the miner for the purpose of procuring the
b*>)lot Uldl iv contained in each copy, aod iliac

while we do uol -I-, nor do we fl liter ourselves
tbat it will be. mat our action should govern

BABY m SOLID RASH
Ugly, Painful, Blotched, Malicious.
No Rest Day or Night. Cured
by Cuticura Remedies
in Three Weeks.
Our oldest child, now six years of act*, when an in-
fant six months old. was attacked with a virulent,
malignant skin disease. All ordinary remedies rail-
ing, we called our family physician, who attempted
to cure it; but it spread with almost incredlbld
rapidity until the lower portion of the little fellow's
person, from the middle of his back down to his
knees, was one solid rash, ugly, painful, blotched and
malicious. AYe had no rest at night, no peace by day.
Finally, we were advised to try the Ccticuba
Ki:\inir.s. The effect was simply marvelous. In
three or four weeks a complete cure was wrought,
leaving the little fellow's person as white and healthy
as though he had never boon attacked. In my opin-
ion your valuable remedies saved his life, and to-day
he a strong, healthy child, perfectly well, no repe.
tltlon of the disease haviug ever occurred.
