Gallagher, wife of the paator of the Atkinson Memorial Congregational Church of Old Tacoma, la the leader of a new religious gect. A number of women, principally married, have renounced their huabanda and men generally, unless the latter have Income sanctified, as the women believe them selves purified by God and sanctified be yond the touch of unsanctiflod mankind. The movement has met with sufficient popularity among married and unmar ried women and a few men to warrant the leadera in renting s hall to dincuiia the subject of utii venial sanctiflcation, which they conaider an important one in a higher civilization and ethics. Aa a result of adhering to the apirit of the principles of the new aect there are re ported aeveral matrimonial infelicities, regarding which Mrs. Gallagher nays that if either the husband or the wife ia sanctified and the oilier is not they can not get along together. It ia currently reported Kev. Mr. Gallagher ia displeased with the new sect's plans and would seek a divorce. ' SKMT TO STOCKTOIT. Man Witnesses Afflrru Juke Rudolph's r insanity. Ban Francihco. Jake Rudolph, who attempted to kill the business manager of the Chronicle on the 7th instant, has been committed to the Stockton Insane Asylum as the result of the examina tion before Superior Judge Levy and the Insanity CommiBsioncrs. There was no attempt to Interpose a defense, and the consensus of testimony entabllshed be yond question that Rudolph was insane, and that his mental condition was of he reditary origin. Chris Buckley testified that he had known him for twenty years, during the greater part of which time Rudolph had been his clerk and com panion. The ex-boss recalled the occa sional tits of melancholia which over came Rudolph, who had several times threatened to kill others and then him self. Buckley believed Rudolph waM in sane, and that his insanity had been hastened and aggravated by domestio troubles. 8am Ralney's knowledge of Rudolph extended over many years, and he personally lwlieved that the man was insane, as well as dangerous to the community. J. B. Kllot, whom Rudolph tried to shoot, ten tilled that he did not know the man and had never seen him before the assault. Lemuel Rudolph, brother of Jake, admitted the family taint of madness, 'and confirmed the statement that his father, mother and sister were mentally irresponsible. Ex Coroner W. F, Garwood. Dr. George Franklin Shiels.Pr. J. P. Wilson, Noah Flood and Dr. J. M. Bell testified that they knew Jake Rudolph, and that they believed he was insane. Rudolph was accordingly committed to the asylum at Stockton, with the provision that snould his reason be restored he must be turned over to the San Francisco authorities for trial upon the charge of assault with in tent to commit muraer. SMUGGLING BTKAMKR The Strange Craft That Hovers About Monterey Bay.' Pacific Guovs, Cau Belated pedes trians who were on the railroad track that lines the beach near Chinatown the other night were considerably amaied at seeing through the thick fog the distinct outlinea of small steamer. Being so near the shore and among some of the most dangerous rocks in this vicinity, they came to the conclusion that the boat was a amuiriiler. The helmsman evi dently knew the Ins and outs of the bay, aa no vessel could approach so near the dangerous shore without heing in great peril. No lights could be discerned by the men on shore. She had evidently been there some time, and as soon as the men on shore were seen by those on the steamer the vessel was put about and made straight for the open sea. This is the second occurrence of this kind in this neighborhood, as on the 28th of March last some railroad hands saw what appeared by their description .to be the same boat that attempted landing the other night. Monterey Bay is the best harbor on the coast tor smugglers, and at times they have been captured .here; but since the fifty Chinamen landed near here by the Halcyon were taken into custody the smugglers nave oeen cau tious. Some weeks ago aeveral custom hniiHu officials were at Pacific Grove, and since then a close waCch has been kept by their orders, and some interesting developments are tooxea tor. "' TWO AGAINST !. Deelston of the Court In a Midwinter ,..),. . Valr Dispute. ' San Francisco. The suit of Conces sionaire C. F. Hall against the Midwin ter Fair management has been decided in favor of the latter. Hall claimed that in Chicago he bought the exclusive right to exhibit gold and silver plating at the Midwinter Fair. He paid (500 for the privilege, and went to the further ex- Eense of fitting up a 11,300 booth. After e was in working trim he discovered that three other people at the fair were in the same line of buxiness. Hall de manded that their privileges should be revoked. The management refused to do tills, and Hall brought suit for an in junction. The whole case rested on his application papers. Hall said he had been unable to get them from the man agement. The management declared that thev were " lost." In consequence testimony had to be offered to show what they contained. Hall swore they granted him the " exclusive " privilege, and pointed to his receipt to snow teat he would not have paid the money had he not got an exclusive right. Messrs. de Young and Comely swore that Hall had not been granted the "exclusive" It was two against one. Judge Miirnhv said that the t) lurphy said that the preponderance of evidence was on the side of the Midwin- ter Fair management and he must per- force give Judgment in its favor, FKNNIMOltK CONVICTKD. The Ex-County Clerk Found Guilty of Kmbeaxleinent. Post Townsbnb. W. F. Fennlmore, ex-County Clerk of Jefferson county, has been convicted in the Superior Court of embezzling 527.50. The jury recom mended that he receive the lowest sen tence consistent with the law. One year before he retired frobi office two local banks refused to pay their taxes on ac count of their property being assessed at an excessive valuation, and while the matter was in adjudication paid to Fen ni more the amount stated as a tender. Subsequently the suit was decided in favor of J-lie banks, and Fennimore turned theofllceover to the newly elected County Clerk. The accused did not sur render the money to his successor or the County Treasurer. Such was the evi dence adduced in the prosecution. The defense offered no testimony except as to Fennimore's previous good character and reputation in the community. The jury was out thirty minutes. Mr. Fen nimore has lived in Jefferson county ten years, and was a Deputy Collector of Customs from 1883 to 18H8. In 188(1 and 18(X) he was elected County Clerk by large majorities, leading the bead of the tickets by 200 or 300. ASTORIANS IllCJKCT IT. The Stanton-Campbell Proposition la Decided Adversely. Astoria. The Stanton-Campbell rail road proposition was considered by the Astoria railroad subsidy committee and decided upon adversely. The main ob jection found was that it was proposed to tie up the subsidy for twenty days, and this in accordance with the previous determination of the committee to enter tain no offer other than one to complete the road was rejected. Whether the Stanton-Campbell party will now retire is a matter of conjecture, although Mr. Stanton stated before his departure for Portland that he would abandon the en terprise for good. Many of his friends here, however, claim that he will again be in the field with an amended propo sition in the course of two or three weeks. The belief is gaining ground that the Union Pacific will build the river road this summer, and various rumors to that effect, all apparently well found ed, are current. The sentiment of the majority of the property owners is fa vorable to Messrs. Baxter aud Dicken son, in whose good faith and ability to bring the matter to a successful issue there is a pretty general confidence. LITTLK ANNIR MOONKT.

The plaintiff ia Mrs. Dr. Rawson, cousin of Prince Yterbide of Mexico, with whom she was formerly in love and with whom she was recently received at Washington, D. C., by Secretary Gresham. She is supposed to have been jilted by him, and. meeting Dr. Rawson, who is a very handsome man, on a train while she was yet only 17 years old, she married him after a six dava' courtship. They then resided in Helena, Mont. Mrs. Rawson, who is a lovely woman and now visiting in California, asks to be excused from de tailing the causes of the divorce, but al leges that her husband's practices were such that she could not live with him.

BRYAN'S CANAL BILL. Provisions Made for an Imme diate Working Capital. GREAT INNOVATION INTRODUCED Plan for the Completion of the Nicara gua Canal by This Government by a Mew System of Financiering Some Features of Morgan's Product. Washington. A plan for the comple tion of the Nicaragua canal by this gov ernment by a new system ot financiering has been introduced in the House by its author, Bryan of Nebraska. While some features of Senator Morgan's product are repeated, a great innovation is brought forward by provisions Intended to in crease the circulating medium of the country, paying for the stock of the canal company by an issue of legal-tender notes modeled after the greenbacks of 1802. The plan is designed so as to meet favor from the anti-bond men. Accord ing to the bill the stock of the canal com pany is to consist of 1,000 shares of $100 each, tor which legal United States notes identical in character to those issued under the act of February, 1862, are to be issued, redeemable to the same ex tent and same manner as those of 1862. The Secretary of the Treasury is to pur chase $70,000,000 of the stock of the company and pay for it at par by the issue of the notes described, which are to be kept in circulation as a part of the currency of the country. Six millions of the capital stock is to be issued to the government of Nicaragua, $600,000 to Costa "Rica, and the remaining $23,600, 000 is to be held in the Treasury nntil the government decides whether to pur chase it or permit it to be sold by sub scription, except an amount not to ex ceed $7,000,000, to be used by the com pany in taking np its outstanding stocK. Provision is made for an immediate issue of $2,000,000 aa a working capital and the issue ol the remainder in quarterly installments as may be necessary to carry on the work of construction. FIGHTING SMALLPOX. ' Kxtra Precaution Taken by the Chicago CniCAOo. Mayor Hopkins and Health Commissioner Reynolds have issued a joint proclamation requiring all persons the city who have not been vacci nated to have that operation performed within ten davs under penalty of prose cution under a city o-dinance providing a fine of not less than $3 nor more than $25 for failure. Those who cannot afford to pay for vaccination will be treated free. The Commissioner has put 100 men on the rolls. They consist mainly of physicians and senior medical stu dents, and will be used as vaccinators. To the force of men investigating daily the " sweat shops " twenty-five others were added, making the total force fifty. The health officials have secured a lum ber kiln in which to lumigate ciotning. This will be useful in the fumigation of clothing taken from "sweat shops." un account of the prevalence of the disease the City Collector has .temporarily re fused licenses to junk dealers. LOVK HAS FOREVER FLED. Lillian Rusaell and Slgnor Perttglnl Ag;re to Separate. Nkw York. Lillian Russell and her husband, Signor Perugini, who ia known in private life as John Chatterton, have separated forever and aye. This an nouncement, which is made positively on the authority of no less a person than Miss Russell herself, will be a big sur prise to the public, as the memory of ber marriatre to her fellow-singer, not quite four months ago, is not yet faded, but to those who are intimate with Miss Rus sell and her husband it will come only aa the logical result of their difference in temperament, which became pronounced a few days after the strange Sunday morning ceremony performed by a Ho boken Justice of the Peace. For to their relatives and others close to them the songbirds made no secret of their sad discovery that their hearts, unlike their voices, were not attuned and never could be. . , LABOR IX OREGON. A Statement From the American Pro tective Tariff League. Washington. The American Protect ive Tariff League has prepared a state ment showing the condition of labor in Oregon. From 140 different reports in thirty-five different towns it is shown that the total average number of hands employed in 1892 was 3,648. In 1803 there were 8,021, and in 1894, 1,612, This was a decrease in 1893 ot Zl per cent, and m loiH oi w per cent, sev-entv-six reports were received from Portland, showing! 2.689 hands employed in 1892 and 1,164 in 1894.

Brendlinger was a bachelor, and was found dead in bed recently. He owned a large amount of unmortgaged property in the center of the city. Munn was formerly witli the Colorado National Bank of Denver and afterward with the first '.National Bank of Helena. He is now in Chicago.

Reports come from all over the State that locusts are abundant, and many fruit growers are making anx ious inquiries regarding their destructive habits and their probable damage to fruit and crops. NATIONAL CAPITAL HEWS. A bill to brovlde for coinage at the branch mint at Denver, Col., baa been introduced in the House by Pence. It appropriate $600,000 for the construc tion of the necessary plant. Representative Wilson of Washington is prepared to show that the House cut of the Apache Indian appropriation! from $126,000 to $90,000 will necessitate a re duction next year of 1,000,000 pounds of beef and 30,000 pounds of flour. It is his opinion this cut is likely to lead to trouble wun tne Apacnes. it win ainu be shown that the Indian police service will be made inefficient by the proposed cut and the Indian schools crippled. There are many other specific items likely to cause an uprising among the Indians. . Senator Squire has offered an amend ment to the river and harbor bill provid ing for the Seattle canal in a new form, aa follows: "Dredging Shilahole Bay and Salmon Bay and improvement of the waterway connecting the waters of Pu get Sound at Salmon Bay with Lakes Union and Washington by enlarging the waterway into a ship canal, with neces sary locks and appliances in connection therewith, $200,000."

This reduced rental and tax was accepted because, the company had not been permitted to take the lull num ber of skins ordinarily specified in the lease as a limit. In view of thiaecision the Secretary has made a formal demand upon the company for the full amount of rent and per skin tax for the year 189S, and has referred to the Attorney-General for such action as he may deem advis- able the matter of collecting from the company the full amount due from the previous years, -ine wnoie amount claimed to be due the government is about $320,000, of which $132,000 is on account of the 1893 catch.

Since the Deacon family skel eton was brought to the view of the public Paris has had no sensation equal to ths Count Elie Talleyrand-Perigord affair. That the charges made by young Lebaudy are well backed seems certain from the fact that Princess Sagan, mother of the Count, has consented to pay a sum equal to $620,000. Whether the Count or M. de Woestyn, both of whom are now at liberty, thanks to the Prin cess, knew they were handling forged , - - - notes has not appeared in evidence, but that somebody forged Lebaudy's name I to paper for a fabulous sum is certain. tTjoVthe agreement Count Elie will go out of TrtLnas for a nnmber of years, and j)e Wotetyn will probably leave Paris, Tbere ifJ jfo,,, donfjt now the count f j to the handa of .harpers, who soon relieved him of whatever he realized from the sale of the notes, for he has I jiuiii miv Din not m franc left In fact h goea Rbroad nndef a npon n, by hii mother, who ia willing to make any sac rifice it be will reform. , TBN THOUSAND LITRS LOST. lages and towns.
