[SPECIAL DISPATCHES TO THK RECORD-TCIION.J j i j ■ ■ CHICAGO AXD NEW YORK. Spirited Debate Before (he World's Fair Senate Committee. Wakhtkstok, January 11th.— Chicago and New York representatives to-day pre sented their claims for the location of the World's Fair before the Senate special com mittee. Mr. Oepew was the first speaker for New York. Alter alluding to the Paris Exposi tion, and the meagerness of the American exhibit there, he said: "Now, it becomes our necessity to hold an exhibition of the United states which shall be so broad in its cbpracter. sa international in its invita tions and in its hospitalities, that all the pejple who cao produce, who want materials, or have the opportunities for trede, shall come here with their products to exhibit a:iu Bee what we can do. Jf our friends from Washington, Chicago ami St. Louis would dismiss from their minds local pre judices and the ambition which they have, and would fix their eyes and impartial judgment on the question, they would say n the fair in Great Britain was to be held at Manchester, Birmingham or Liverpool, great cities.it would be a failure and they would not go. They would say that if h fair in France would be held in Marseilles or Lyons, great cities, they would not go. •Now I take it there lsnodiscusion as tT what is the metropolis of this country. I in can i:s financial and commercial metrop olis. New York is certainly the metropolis of the United States." Depew said he had been interested in the circle theory presented by St. Louis and which seems a novel method of duplicating and reduplicating the population of the United Btates. A center ol 100 miles from Peekekill, N. V., includes the Hudson with its unequalled cities, it includes the me tropolis, and yet Peekskill is not here as an aspirant for this fair on the circle theory. Within the limits of what constitutes the city of New York, Jersey City, etc., you have three Chic.igos. Kight millions of population in the vicinity could visit the fair at New York for a sum not more than $2. and from that down to tive cents. On the transportation problem, he said, depended largely the success of the fair. Two hundred thousand wishing to go home from St. Luuis or Chicago could not dis perse at the rate of more than 26,000 per hour and this would take eight hours, and the next day the fair would close, while New York could distribute a crowd more rapidly than was done in Paris. He reviewed at length the transportation possibilities of competing cities, and said New York was the only city in the Union that could possibly accommodate the crowds that must make the exposition a success. The 150.000 people who would visit the exposition every day would not be noticed on the streets cf New York. In conclusion, he said that New York was willing to leave the decision of the question to the calm and uubiased judg ment of the committee and of Congress. The committee then took a recess to al low the members to attend the funeral of Judge Keliey in the House. When the committee reassembled the room was again crowded to its fullest capacity. The Chi cago delegatiou bad front seats. The first speaker of the afternoon was ex-Senator Warner Miller, who with James Wood, President of the New York State Agricult ural Society, closed the case for New York. The first gentleman to present the claims of I Mcago was Mayor Creiger, of thai city. '•All are here,"' he said, "before you to-day as citizens of a common country,' represent ing the great western city, deeply interested in this great exposition which is de led to be held in 1892, to cummemorate tbe discovery of this hemisphere by that intrepid navigator, Christopher Columbus. I say tliey are deeply interested in it, ar.,l are deiply in earnest in the belief it ought to be held in the far West. [Applause.] epresent in some measure, the people bicago, who, while that is their desire, are also united in the desire and determin ation that wherever this exposition is held, irberever in the wisdom of this Congress it sh:.il be assigned, nothing shall be want ing on their part to make it eminently sno cessful, aud they will endeavor to add their uiite to make it comport with me dignity of this grand and progressive nation. [Applause.] "There is no rivalry between the empire city of America, New York, t.n-.: the em pire city of the great West, Chicago. H.r people are actuated by higher and □ motives. She desires tbe greatest good io the greatest number. We acejrd to the empire city, New York, all and everything she claims. But, Mr. Chairman, Senators, gentlemen, there is a Dew empire and a new gateway lying on the other side of the Alleghar.y Mountains. We recoguiz; the grandeur and greatness of the city of New York, aud her ability to do all that may be demanded, but that does not mean that the d grand city in population, commerce ami manufacturing importance does Lot 98 like ehHrHCteristics. "We think, in Chicago, we can meet every demand required by this great expo sition, and are very enrnest that it shall be held in th« great West, that sphere of ad vanced civilization, out of which are to grow the arts and sciences as the offspring of this progressive empire. We do not for get to accord St. Louis like requisites. We acknowledge all, but in doing so we esk you shall not de-tract from this marvel of the nineteenth century, Chicago. New York Ims b;en growing aud maturing for 200 years. Chicago has been growing from the time the city was named, only lifty three years, when it was wiped out by the most terrible calamity that History records. Siace tLen she bl s r.-cuperated and resusci tated by the power aud will of her new blood, which is now really only thirteen years old, slid you Senators, and you peo ple Iron; abroad, every where in this conn try, cannot deny jour pride that such things tmve occurred unner the beni^nent influence of thi; great Gjverrnitnt. "She stands ont boldly, claiming the right of your protection. "Remember the thousands of square miles that lie oa the other M.le- of the Alleghany mountains. Remember the great chain of lakes Remember St. Louis, tbe mistress city of the world's greatest river. Let New York not forget that she must depend for her future progress, not altogether, but largely, on the fertile fields of the West. Remember that this young giant of the West is constructing a grand waterway to the Southwest; that she has undertaken that stupendous work, and will any map from St. Louis or from ihis beautiful Capi tal say that a city that is able to cope with and find means to carry on that work shall set aside her claims for this great exposi tion. "Cbicago wants this exposition. She i« ready to meet every requirement. The West must be noticed, and it was without presumption that he said be spoke for six teen sovereign States of the new West." Thomas B. Bryan was the next speaker. After referring in a humorous manner to New York's claims and Mr. Depew, he proceeded to argue that of ail the large <at ies Chicago had the coolest, most comfort able and pleasant climate, and that she had unequalled railroad facilities and ac comtuodatioDS. No other city was equally accessible, alike for the bulk of exhibits and for visitors. The gentlemen from New Yorfc could make beautiful pictures of their sites, while poor Chicago people must content them selves witubuikliKK a shaft of truth on a pedestal of facts. Could any honest, fair miuded, dispassionate man say the site se lected by New York was a proper site? The truh aas the site was Dot the right lo cation for ;i World's Fair, it had physical obstructions, ft was uneven. It would require a vat: expenditure of money to pull down the buildings. It required large sums to hlast its rocks. It required dyna- | mite to blow up tbe Constitution of the State in cr,!er that it mighx be occupied. Chicago had thousands cf seres at the dis posal of the fair, no: n house to buy, not a ; cube yard to level. Throughout tbe length and breadth of the land there could not br- found auv d'y (A adequate resources and popuidtioa that conirf present to the Congress of the United f^ates such piaiiS . and such R'iw.ji-tabiiity' cf ground for the purposes cf t!;r gran<s exposition as Mold j the city of ■ icago Chicago had tLe land j within tea tnina!es of her hotels which : seeun : made and itft tmoo> cupiedf.: iia express purpose. The fa- citxa of the country, by an over- j whelming majority, wanted Chicago, and j this lie spoke adv: ;■::>•. The agricultural journals wanted the fair in Chicago, because in the magnificence of New York's appropriation it had appro priated only ten acres for the agricultural exhibit. Why, one single high-nietiled animal of the West would paw the earth and snort his contempt a' such a pitiable appropriation. Ten acres! What for? For the vast domain of America, South Amer ica and Mexico as well. Ten acres! [Liughter ] E. J. Jeffrey, of Chicago, said the task had been allotted to him of endeavoring (o show in some detail the ability of Chi cigo to satisfactorily and in a proper man ner conduct the exposition. The tirst requisite was a financial basiß, and he presented a certificate of the Exec utive Committee, certifying that $5,000,000 had been subscribed in aid of the enter prise. He had a prepared list of the esti nated receipts and expenditures of the ex position, showing the receipts from sub scription sales of privileges, admissions, sale of material after the close of the expo sition, etc., amount to about $14,000,000. The expenditures—Building and prepara tion of grounds. $7,000,000; administrative and other expenses, $0,000,000. Contingent fund, $4,000,000. As regards the site, he proceeded to di rect the attention of the committee to the extent of Chicago, and the number of parks which might be utilized for the pro posed fair. There are one hundred and sixty-live square miles within the limits of Chicago, and the population is over one million one hundred thousand. He spoke of the Lake Front Park, and others in the city, ail connected by the b mlevard system, and comprising in the aggregate more than two thousand acres. O?er nine hundred acres were iD Jackson and Washington Parks, within half a mile of each othtr, and connected. He spoke of the great number of rail roads (twenty-four) centering in Chicago and having their terminals there, ami said DO other city in the world had within its limits such a complele, weil-connected and comprehensive System of railroad commu nication. Jeffrey spoke of the ability of the Chica go mechanics and artisans to manage the work, and mentioned that in 1889 build ings had been constructed in Chicago that occupied a street irontage of fifty-five miles. He gave statistics regarding the iimutn.se business done in Chicago in flour, grain, live stock, etc., and declared Chicago was the headquarters of the greatest steel rail milling in the world. As to trans portation facilities, there are at present 850 passenger trains arriving and departing daily in Chicago. The twenty-four railroads terminating there aggregate 54,411 miles, with the trib u'ary lines adding 70,000 miles. He said it was'an established f«ct that there were more miles of railroads resting in Chicago and tributary thereto than were tributary to any other city on the face of the globe. There were more tons of freight arriving in and shipped out of and passing through Chicago by rail and water than in any other city in the world. As to the lake commrrce, he said in the number of vessels arriving and clearing, Chicago was the first port in the United States, and in tonnage, the second. Last year 22,190 vessels arrived and cleared, with B tonnage of S 900,000 tons. AelOfacilities for handling passengers in Chicago, Jeffrey pointed out the routes of the various cable and horse car l'nes, making an aggregate of 115 miles, and said in 1889 these lines carried 103.000,000 of passengers, or an average of 440,000 a day. The steam railroads of Chicago could move 2,<>70,000 every day for eighteen hours. Tee steamboat lines could move 17,000 per day to and from other ports, and the excursion boats plying between some of the parks and the center of the city, 255.000 a day. Jeflry spoke of the great agricultural and other wealth of the State surrounding Chicago. He had not found io Europa any objection on the part of exhibitors to go to Chicago. HONORS TO THE DEAD. Impressive Ceremonies Over the Body n, William D. Kelley. Washington, January 11th. —The funeral of the laic Congressman Kelie.7 occurred at 12 o'clock to-day in the hall of the House of Representatives. The members of the House and Senate gathered in the ball to pay their respects to the memory of the man wbo for thirty consecutive years has had his seat in Congress and a place in their esteem. Vice-President Morton and the delega tion of Senators entered the chamber a lit tle before noon, taking seats in front of the Speaker's desk. Tne other seats in tbe hall were occupied by members of tbe House and Government officials. The galleries were crowded, and not since the funeral ceremonies over Chief Justice Waite oc curred has such a crowd gathered. At noun the House was called to order and the proceedings of the previous session read. The funeral cortege was announced, and at the iap of tbe Speaker's gavel all as sembled arose to their fec;t, whiie a solemn hr.sh fell upon the galleries. As the cor tege advanced down the main aisle, llev. Butler, Chaplain of the Sena Te. read an ap propriate selection from the Lutheran fu neral ceremony. Following him were the Congressional Committea of O'Neil, Me- Kiniey, Cannon, Banks, McKenna, Car lisle, Bynmn, Ilolmun and Motchier, and the Senate Comniiitee of Sherman, Cam eron, ilanderson, Butler and Colquitt The casket bearing the remains was borne by eight House officials, and directly behind it came the members of the de ceased's family. The casket was rilsced upon a catafalque ia front of the Speaker's des.'t, and Ilsv. Dr. Cuthberi, of the Baptist Church, invoked prayer. The family occupied seals near the bier, and the Congressional Committee stood grouped around with bowed heads as the minister njaiie a feeling prayer. Chaplain Butler next read selections from the Scripture and part of the ceremony cf the Lutheran Church. He then olfered prayer. An affecting scene was presented when one of the daughters of tbe deceuseu kneeled, almost stietcbed upon the floor, Ht the foot of the bier, overcome by her feelings. The older members of tbe House were visibly affected, and audible sounds of weeping proceeded from the galleries. Dr. Cuthbert pronounced tbe benediction and the cortege filed out, everyone stand ing as the casket was borne out the center aii-lc. Tbe remains were taken to tbe depot and ' cirried on a special train to Philadelphia, where the interment will be made to-mor row. A large delegation of Judge Kelley's friends will go over from this city. The Revenue Marine Service. Washington, January 11th.—The Even inr; Star to-night says: It looks as though one of the two bills now before Congress for the transfer of the Revenue Marine j Bervice from the Treasury Department to I the Navy wonld become a law. Secretary j Windom has written a letter to the House I committee having one of tbese bills in charge indicating that be favored the plon. It is also understood that Secretary | Tracy has assented to the transfer and that opinions obtained from some of the higher officers of the service show that they favor the change. This unanimity of opinion is the surest influence in behalf of the proposition, as heretofore the antagonistic attitude of the various Secretaries of the Navy has been the only obstacle. Bounty for Farmers. Washington, January 11th.—Before tbe j Ways and Means Committee to day, Alex ! ander Wedburn, of Alexandria, Virginia, , appeared as a representative of tbe legisla ! tive committee of the National GraDge and i tbe Virginia State Grange, to demand j equal protection of the farmer with the j steel, iron aud wool manufacturer.

An Abortive Attempt to Secure Testi mony Against Furucll. Denver (CoL), January llih.—The Newt publishes a five-column special from Oma ba, purporting to be an interview with Thos. Brennan, who was the tirtt Stcre-tary of the Land League in Ireland, and one of the few men in the United States wbo knowa thoroughly and enjojs the confi dence of all the leaders in the League movement in Ireland. Breunan furnishes a history of the ca^e which shows how the London Times was trying to manufacture P. J. Sheridan into a witness against Par nell before the London Commission. He also explains the cable message sent to himself and Alexander Sullivan on May <>, 1889, from Michael Ddvitt, at Paris, and which Dr. McCahey attempted to give sig nificance in connection with the disappear ani-3 of Dr. Cronin. He said: ''On the day mentioned I received aeiblegrarn from Paris, unsigned, but which I believed wns from Davitt, informing me that some person on this side had offered to go to London and give evidence on behalf of the Parnell Commission, and that money had been sent by the Times people to Chicago, and Pueblo, Col., and asked me to consult Patrick Egan on the subject. 'On May 7th K.'um came to my office in Omaha, where we had a long consultation as to who the person was who was going to turn traitor. On May ti'.h and 7th the Chicago and Omaha papers contained articles an nouncing the disappearance of Cronin. We at once suspected him, and sent men to New York to watch the vessel which sailed on the 12:h, but which amounted to noth ing. "Soon after this a messenger came from Davitt, who said Sheridan was the man the Times attempted to get. We then felt at Bate, us we had perfect confidence in Sheridan and knew nothing could tempt him to go over. '"Now, for Sheridan's part of the story, which I declare is true. On October 15, 18sij, a man came to my ranch in Rio Grande county and introduced himself as an agtnt of the London 7'imcs. He said he had been sent over by Joseph Soames. at torney for the Times, to see if I would come to London and testify on behalf of that newspaper before the Parnell Commission, and that lie was prepared to offer me any amount of money for my services, and guarantee me absolute protection while in England. "fhis man gave his name as J. F. Kirby and after some further conversation I was requested by him to name my price. '• 'Will the Times give me $10,000 to do this thing?' I asked him. "Kirby replied. 'Yes. provided your evi dence is satisfactory. You will be paid the amount one hour after your examination closes.' " 'What will you consider satisfactory evidence." I inquired. " 'The Times people want evidence to the effect that Parnell was a parly to tne Phoe nix Park murderii, if not the instigator of them, and your evidence to that ell. ct will be satisfactory to my friends and secure for you the fortune you name and the fullest protection of the Government.' "'ls the Government aiding the Times in defraying the expenses of the Coinniis bion?' I inquired. " 'Not as a Government, but as individu als I presume they are,' he replied. "'What guarantee will I have that your people will pay this money in the event of niy evidence proving satisfactory ?' I asked. '"Before you leavejtbis country,'he an swered, 'Joseph Soamps will cable a draft to any bank that we way agree upon in New York cr Chicago in favor of your wife, or whoever else you may name, the same to be paid over as soon as your ex amination closes, provided it is deemed satisfactory.' '"Well, I guess I don't rare for the voy age anyhow,' I said. 'Could I not give my evidence in this country bel'oie a sub-Com nii.-aiou.' '" 'Yes, but you cannot hope ior tbe pro tection here which you would get in Lon dou,' he replied. 'We then debated at some length the (juettiun of giving evidence before a sub- ConimUsi'in in this country, and ulti mately led him to believe that I would give my evidence before it sub-Commission, a3 such evidence would make it possible for me to live in my present home. A provision was to be made for my wile and family by an advance of £1,000 to my wife by a mortgage on property in Colorado be fore the sub-Commission sat. "I then suggested the advisability of my being po3ted on whatever evidence of im portance was to be given by the other vvit ntsses, in order that mine should be cor roborative, or at least not contradictory. In reply, he said that a series of questions and answers rfquired of them would be prepared by Soanies as soon as he (Kirby) got back to London, af:tr which he was to return here and perfect his arrangements wilh nie.': The original of this statement, with ail the letters and telegrams were forwarded to Davitt June 3, 1888 Brennan concluded by saying that Sheri dan kept Kirby waiting for him until so lite h date as tbe last ten days of Sir Henry James' «peech, which n) prolonged in the hope that Kirby would i;e able to keep his promise, and deliver Sheridan at the latt moment as a witness for the lima. ■WHAT NEXT ? Democrats V. i:o Want to Abrogate the Fifteenth Amendment. Memphis (Term), January 11th.—At 10 a. m , West, a member of the Mississippi Legislature and among the leading men of the State, will, Monday, lay before the Leg islature a memorial to Coczress praying the abrogation of the Fifteenth Amend ment to the Constitution, and it is almost certain to pass. The document recites that if the prayer ba granted the nearo question will be solved, as it all arises from negroes in politic.''; that they are here un equal in all respects to the white man, inferior to him morally, physically and intellectulaly; that owing to this condition of an&irs existing between them the negroes demand and will continue to demand equal rights, as citizens, to par ticipate in tLe elections, and it has been fixed in the minds and heerU of the Anglo-Saxon race that the race is so far inferior to them, so incapacitated in the administration of government, that it shall never hold the tucidcr which ontrols the destiny of the j;reat ship ot State. General Wen says it will cut down tbe representation in Congress and the Elect oral College, but no matter; better afford high tariff and Republican rule, with pro tection against the negro, than low tariff and Democratic government.

He refuses to give the details, but the murder is attributed to jealousy resulting from tbe favoritism of the girl for Sillman, and the fact that he seemed to be of a higher and more refined nature than bis companions. Th« two lovers had an open rupture, and Hobacker and Lacey sided wi'.h Burdick. Sillman's body was taken up last week and examined, and some marks were found about his head and neck that gave color to the suspicion that he died a violent death. It is believed that the three men forced Sillman to swallow the dose, and that the injury was inflicted while trying to avoid taking it. IS NEED OF INFORMATION. Heated Discussion of Divines V. li:I.- Os tensibly Engaged in Prayer* Fi.E.MiM.-iii mi (Ky), January 11th.—The Methodist, Baptist and Presbyterian churcheS of ihis place decided to observe the week of prayer in a series of union meetings. The third meeting of the series was held at the Methodist Church on Monday night. A very large congregation was present and after short addresses by the pastors the prayer-meeting was held. During the pro prtsj of this tervice the llev. Mr. Hughes, pastor of the Presbyterian Church, was called on to pray. In ;he course of his in vocation he introduced the articles of f*ith of their church, and on their kntes the two preachers fuuglit over the doctrines of their respective churches, while the congrega tion in confusion rose to its feet and crowded about the two disputants, who bombarded each other with Bible quota tions, denominational argument and sharp retort. The audience was becoming noisy. There were indications of more serious tioub'.e. which might have ended iv blows, if nothing worse, when the Methodist pastor took the pulpit and denounced tbe proceeding" as a discrace to the place, the occasion and ihe religion that all professed, and ordering the congregation out. He de clared he would not permit such shameful scenes in his church. The congregations ct tbe two disputant prefccbers stand by their respective pastors, while the sinners on the outside are won dering if the church members of Flemings burg don't need to be converted. Airs. Foster Interviewed. Chicago, January 11th. —Mrs. J. Ellen Foster, the President of the lowa Women's Christian Temperance Union, passed through Chicago to-day on her way East. In an interview she said: "The lowa Union, though still techni cally auxiliary to the National Society, is not in Larmony with the partisan pulicy of the N'aiional Union, and will, at the next annual meeting, sever its constitutional anxiliaryship. The vicissitudes of the lest lowa election cause som« appre hension among the Prohibitionists that the State prohibition law might be repealed. There is, however, no responsible ground for these apprehensions. The Prohibition Convention, just held in Dcs Moines, was the largest a;ui most enthusiastic ever held in the State." Mrs, Foster expressed the belief that Senator Allison will be re-eiected, and as sened that no man in the State was more popular than he. Illinois Influenza.

The New Treaty Makes Canada an Un healthy Place for Forgerg. Ottawa (Ont.), January llih.—A copy of a draft of the pxtraditioa treaty agreed upon by Lord Salisbury and the American Minister in London, for submission to the various legislative bodies for sanction, has been forwarded to the Governor-General from the Foreign Office, and handed by him to Hon. Joseph Chapleau, Secretary of State. The treaty has been confidentially communicated, and its precise text cannot therefore be made public, but it may suf fice to give a synopsis of its provisions. It is drafted as an extension of tbe Ash burton treaty of 1542. The portion of that treaty which deals with extradition ia com prised in article 10. The crimes mentioned in that section as extraditable are murder, assault with intent to commit murder, piracy, arson, robbery bnd the utterance of forged papers. The new treaty recites that "whereas, it is desired by her Britannic Majesty and the United Stales of America that the provisions of said article 10 should embrace certain other ciimes not therein specified, therefore the high contracting parties, after conferences between Salisbury and Minister Lincoln, had agreed that tbe following crimes, in addition to those men tioned in article 10, should be henceforth extraditable, namely: "Attempt or conspiracy to murder, man slaughter, counterfeiting or altering money and uttering counterfeit or altered money; burglary, embezzelment or larceny e>f any sum or "article of the value ot $50 and up ward; rape or indecent assault on females; malicious injury to property whereby the life of any person U endangered; criminal scuttling or destroying vessels on the high seas or on the great lakes i t' North America, or attempting or conspiring to do so; as sault on board a vessi-i . high seas or on the great lakrs of North America with intent to eiestroy life Ol to do grievous bodily harm." Any person who lias been convicted of any of these ciimes, but who has not served his sentence, shall be extradited. The treaty sh.ill not have retroactive force —that is, it will nut apply to crimes com mitted before legislative Banction has been cive jn toit. Crimes of a political character are not to be included in its provisions, and if a prisoner can show to a Court that the real object of th'.se making requisition for his surrender is to try him for a political oflense he shall be set at liberty. A fugitive criminal v.'ho has bern acquit ted of the charge for which extradition v;is sought shall not be tried for any cither offense committed prior to the date of ex tradition until he has first had an oppor tunity of returning to tbe country bom which he was exirailited. The treaty may be termiuated by noiiiication fr^m either of the contracting parties. LONDON'S SHERIFF. He is Defendant in a •;0,000 lireack of l'rouiisc Suit, Lonpon.

Washington, January 11th.—There was to be a mstticg to-night of the nsval offi cers on dnty in Washington, for the pur pe of considering the ways and means of legislation for the ortanization of rue navy, and v general rea^jujiment cf rank ace! ; pay. Capiein Phythian, Superintendent of thi- Naval Obscrvator}-, uas prepared a bill to : b^ introduced ia Congress, providing for the eijuaiizition wf rnok aud pay id all the i grades of service, and it was for the purpose of discussing this measure, and other mat ters connected with tne Government, that this meeting was called. A special notice, printed for a couple of days, iuade known this fact to the officers, who were rather surprised this moruing to learn that the meeting bad been indefin itely postponed. It is whispered around the department today that this action of postponing the meeting was due to the wish of the Secretary, expressed in a diplo matic manner to several of the leading spirits of the movement. He remembers the debate raised by Sen ator Chandler in the Senate recentlyabout the employment of Uon. John R. Thomas as attorney for ceitain naval officers to lobby the Cowie bill through Congress, and he felt it an act of prudence to call a halt quietly. The Act proposed by Captain Phythian increases the number of officers above the grade ot Lieutenants in every stall depart ment, but the pay of tbe corps, where the percentage of high ranks is now greater than iii any other branch of the service. The Ac: gives the Engineer Corps two Chief Engineers with the rank of Commo dore, betides a Chief of Bureau. This is generally rogared as 'sop to the engineers, who have always been ready to an I agonize almost every reform measure that has ever been introduced, for the reason that they have generally been ignored. There is also a provision that ensigns, after four years' service, of which three thail be sea service, may, on their own application, be examined for promotion. A CLOSE CALL.

(SPECIAL DISPATCHES TO THK fcECOJID-riJiOM. I A BAD SHOWING. J. M. Davies in Danger of a Criminal FI UMt in ion. San Francisco, January 11th.—No infor mation could be gained at t!ie State Board of Trade yesterday as to whether ex-Secre tary J. M. Davies had paid in the money which the books show he is indebted to the Board. At the meetine of the State Hoard of Trade a few dav-i ago President Ha'ch was instructed to make a formal demand upon Mr. Davies for the money. As Mr. Hatch is out of town it is not known whether Da vies has complied with the request of the Presided of the Board or not. The ex- Secretary is inclined to throw the blame on the shoulders of other persons connected with the Board, and instead of coming for ward, he remains in Oakland and dots not show himseii in tills city. It is now charged that Mr. Davies. besides appropriating money that came under his supervision as Secretary, has al«o retained money that did not belong to the Board. It seems that the Chico Board of Trade some time ago sent $40 to their agent in this city, to have constructed an exhibit case for the display of the products of Butte county. The agent turned the money over to ex Secretary Davies, who on De cember 10. I*BK made an agreement with S. M. Hill to build the case, which was done, and the same was placed in the rooms on Market street. On July 7th last Davies paid $15 on the case, and retained the balance, it is pre sumed. In consequence a bill for the re maining $25 has been presented to the State Board of Trade, but as that oreaniza tion has nothing to do with the construc tion of the exhibit case, it is not believed that they will pay the bill, and the contract ors vrill have to stand the lofcs or collect the balance due Irom the agent in this city of the Chico Board of Trade. It is rumored that unless Davies makes a settlement within a specilied time criminal proceedings will most likely be com menced. CHINESE PROCLAMATION.

From this time on, should there be a renewal of the recent disturbances and acts of violence, we will imire with the officers of the Six Associa tions in a petition to the officials in China, asking them to hold your families in China responsible for your unlawful acis, and keep them as hostages for your good conduct."

As an upshot an attachment was issued lor the jewelry and a warrant for Phillips' arrest on .". charge of concealing goods with intent to defraud his creditors. The officers and parties interested went to Phillips' house and obtained consent of the wife to search the premises, with tLe result thai an original package of rubber l and a number of dolls were found. This was regarded as evidence conclusive, and the search discontinued. Neither the attachment nor the warrant were served, however, as Phillips is com promising fur better than one huudrc-d cents on the ddllar. The stock in the store was invoiced fors4,oCo and wns sold for $1,600. The claims agyre^ate $4,500, but about $l»J0 was scaled eft" as not valid claims on the stook.
