STATE JOTTRNATj, SATCRDAT. EVENTSTG. JUNE 16 1894.
i ! I I- IT MAKESTHEM SAD. Discharge of Government Em ployes Brings Gloom. Reductions and Dismissals in All the Departments BRING MUCH SORROW. Three Hundred Clerks Go in Treasury Alone. ( Washington, JuTsm 16. Special Washington and all ita surroundings are at the height of their summer beauty. There has been abundant rain and not much extreme beat, and all nature shows her richest emerald hue. There are river excursions every day, and for a land trip one may take his cho'c between Chevy Chase, the great ZoitUitfical park, the Georgetown Heights, Ct4k John's bridge, Coxey's camp, Mount Mrn on and all the rest. And yet we are n. Imppy. In fact, the statement one hears bo often that there la more sadness in Washington now than at any timo since the war is not far from absolute truth. It is a sadness that can be felt. One who walks through the depart ments, or in the districts where there is a great deal of petty retail trade, or among the boarding houses, takes the general im pression of sadness even when nothing is said. Dismissals from the various depart ments continue, and, contrary to tho usual rule, the reality has proved far worso than the anticipation. The discharge of one employee brings troubles to many persons, and general trade is seriously affected. Some say the falling off already amounts to $150,000 per month, aud this in turn causes contraction in every branch. Dismissals Cute Hardship. The figures hitherto published do not Ehow th i full number of dismissals. Tho first estimate was that fa, 000,000 in an nual salaries was to be saved, but there will probably be more. The first statement in support of tho Dockery bill indicated a decrease of $240,000 in the treasury depart ment aud the disch tirtro of some SoO clerks, as the second comptroller's office is to be entirely aboliljd as well as two divisions in tho sixth auditor's office. Secretary Carlisle pays it vill take until Nov. 1 to complete the consolidation of the offices, but dismissals are already in progress. In the wrir ofiico something between $400,000 and $150,000 is to bo saved in clerk hire. Ia the record and pension bu reau at least SOO clerks go, as the old mus ter rolls and records of individual soldiers have now been arranged and copied in such convenient thapo that any question thereon can bo answered at once. The ex act number of dismissals in otier bureaus of tho war department is not yet settled, but It wiil fall little, if any, below 500, and a bad feature of it is that in a major ity of th-3 bureuua it is not yet certainly known who is to go. In those bureaus where the work is practically completed all or nearly all tho discharged employees will lie Republicans, simply because there are fow others there. Fewer 1'ersons, bat More Work. In sonic of the divisions moro than four fifths of the employees camo in before Mr. Cleveland's first term and were not dis turbed, nor will tho pending dismissals bo made on political grounds. Tho effi ciency rocord will determine and the most competent bo retained without regard to ago, sex or politics. Congressmen have visited the deportment and urged that the least dependent should bo dismissed, but Secretary Lament found it impossible to make minute inquiries in every case, and there was proof that every dismissal would cause hardship. In tho navy de partment alone is there a prospect of in creased employment. At least there will bo no dismissal-). In the state department much of tho reduction of force results from tho same causes opctativo in almost every kind of business that is, new methods have made it possible for fewer persons to do more work. As an instance, instruc tions to officials, especially consuls, have heretofore been carefully written out and three copies made ono for the official, one for the files and ono for the public printer. Now they aro to be done on a typewriter, and tho three copies can be made at once, so that in place of three penmen receiving $900 per year each there ia one expert typewriter receiving $ 1,200. Correspondence with representatives of foreign governments is still to be done with a pen, and in this line, of course, the most skillful writers are employed. In the interior department there are also' many reductions. At the beginning of the year there wero over 1,000 employees in tho census bureau, and at the close of it there will bo little more than half as many. Dismissals will continue steadily thereafter, aa all work on the census will be completed by next February. Down to tho present it is estimated that nearly two-thirds of those discharged have been (pomen, most cf them with salaries of $75 per month or less. In the land office less than 100 persons have been discharged luring the entire year, and inconsequence of the opening of tho Oklahoma strip and some old Indian and army reservations the commissioner asked for an Increase, but it was not granted. Whenever con gross adjourns many clerks, typewriters and others are thrown out of work tem porarily, and the number will be larger than usual this year. Altogether it is esti mated that about 3,000 people will lose their jobs between June 1 and Aug. 1, which will amount, as near as can be de termined, to a withdrawal of $250,000 from the money paid out each month in this district and possibly $200,000 from the amount paid to clothing and provision men. Jerry Simpson Hopeful. An unusually large number of states men and their families are at Berkeley Springs, Va., and our genial Populist friend, Jerry Simpson, sends a daily note to his copartisans in the house that he is enjoying himself there very much more than he had expected, is regaining strength and confidently counts on being able soon to take his seat as representative and thereafter enter on the redhot cam paign in Kansas. Incidentally it may be added that while politics will be lively al most everywhere this year it is generally conceded that Kansas in the north and North Carolina in the south will be 'hot ter'n a limekiln" from start to finish. Tho socialists and those more or less affiliated with them have opened a regular local campaign in this city, their chief apostle being Mr. Morrison LSwift of Boston, Who Is here to represent the so called In-, dust rial s of New England before the house committee on labor and the senate special committee on business depression. As a proper conclusion it may be added that Messrs. Corey,- Browne and company, emerged from the jail on Sunday morning' and went out to Camp Hostile to find 600 half starved men there. Said prisoners fcave lived on the very fat of the land while ,n jail by the kindness of various ladles aero. LIKE COAL OIL JOHNNIE. Ernest Pltzeh Makes a Sensation at Coney Island Throwing; Silver. Conet Island, N. Y, June 16. Ernest Pitzch. proprietor of the Palm hotel here and the New York hotel at SLAugustine, Fla., went on a spree and made things hum at West Brighton for a few hours. Pitzch had been drinking champagne at hia hotel with some friends all night and at noon started out to do the Bowery. After making things very lively for everybody in several of the concert halls he dropped into Count Vacca's westend casino. Pitzch carried three large cigar boxes filled with silver coin under his arm. Soon the Smilax sisters, song and dance performers, appeared on the stage. They had just finished their first song and were leaving the stage when a show er of silver coins fell upon their heads. Pitzch had emptied one cigar box. The Misses Smilax paid no attention to the valuable shower, but started in to sing their second song, when down came the contents of the second box. This was too much for the song and dance girls, and they stooped to pick up the coins while the audience applauded in a wild manner. Soon the news spread around that a guy from the south was throwing money around at Vacca's, and the casino was crowded to suffocation. Florence French was next to appear, and the third and last box of coins was thrown at her when she sang "Away Down South in Dixie." ,t a Ella Wresner followed Miss French, and the spectators roared when Miss Wesner began to guy Pitzch. "I am a southern woman; how is it that you don't throw money at me?" she shouted. This was more than the hotel keeper could bear, and going out to the cashier's desk, he exchanged a $100 bill for silver. Pitzch placed the silver on a fire shovel and walking down the centre Aisle threw it over the heads of the orchestra mem bers at Miss Wesner. The latter immediately picked up the coins and placing them in her neat little brown derby, walked off the stage sing ing, "Hard Times Come Again No More." Pitzch then bought the drinks for the entire audience which numbered more than six hundred people. Pitzch is very wealthy and has lived at Coney Island during the summer season for fifty years. Count Vacca said Pitzch threw more than $500 upon the stage. After leaving the Casino, the hotel keeper ordered his coachman to drive him to the bank in New York, where he said he was going to get a keg of silver coins and have Borne more fun. MISS ANTHONY RECALLED By the Kational Kqaal Suffrage Associa tion, So It Is Ramortd. A rumor is prevalent that Kansas will hear no more of Susan B. Anthony, at least not until after the election. As the story goes when the action of Miss Anthony before the Populist state convention in pledging her support to the ticket became known there was a commotion among the members of the equal suffrage association, of which Miss Anthony is the national president. The association 'is non-political, and many of its members here and eldewhere are strong Republicans. The dissatisfaction over her action was so strong that it is reported she received a letter recalling her to Now York. A prominent Republican of the city in speaking of the matter said: "You can say that Miss Anthony has gone east and it is also safe to say that she will not re turn to Kansas, aud the Populists will be disappointed in expecting her support." There is considerable room for doubt, however, that Miss Anthony would or could be so peremptorily recalled by any committee or organization. HARRIS IS SATISFIED With the Suffrage Plank in the Populist Platform. Washington, June 16. Colonel W. A. Harris, congressman-at-large from Kan sas, stated today that he was highly grati fied with the action of the Populist state convention in placing an equal suffrage plank in the platform. Mr. Harris stat ed that he had received no official an nouncement of hia nomination. He will accept, however, and enter enthusiasti cally into the fight. "There will be a new issue in the fight," he declared, "and as the lines will be squarely drawn, it will make an exciting canvass. I mistake the temper and feeling of the people of Kansas if woman suffrage does not appeal to the voters of the state. I can not eneage in the canvass until relieved from my du ties here, but will return as soon as con gress adjourns. If there is a state in the union which has been made by the wo men, it ia Kansas, and the story of their suffering from 1855 into the '60s is the most pathetic history with which I am familiar. They made it what it is, and I am glad the opportunity has presented itself of presenting this phase of the ques tion." MYRON REED FOR GOVERNOR He Mar Be the Populist Candidate In Colorado. Denver, June 16. Rev. Myron Reed, who had to resign the pastorate of the First Congregational church on account of dissatisfaction over his expression of sympathy for the Cripple Creek strikers, has announced in an interview his wil lingness to run for governor as the Pop ulist candidate, although he says he rather favors the renomination of Waite.

Lincoln, Neb., June 16. The object ions raised by Gov. Crounse to the sub ject matter of a commencement oration at the state university commencement ia creating considerable talk throughout the state. The commencement orator was Prof. George Herron of Iowa College.Grinnell, Ia., and his topic was A New Political Vision." He startled the audience when he said: - "We Americana have not a democracy yet We do not select, we elect our rep resentatives. Our American senate of today is forcibly reminding us of the court of Louis XVL We cannot any more stop with the progress of democra cy where it ia now than we can take the race back to the Garden of Eden. In a pure democracy the people will be their own legislators. Again the Christian state will be the organized economy of the people. The producer is God's co laborer. Either the principal of compe tition must come to an end or Christian ity. The wage system is fundamentally a slave system, whether wages be just or unjust. There are ten middlemen be tween the producer and consumer where only one is needed. The most honored members of society today are its parasi tes. The evila of today are nowhere greater than in the speculation of land. Speculation in land is a crime against the nation and a blasphemy against God." The sensation was increased, later when Gov. Crounse, who presented the diplo mas to the graduates, departed from hia part of the programme to express his dis approval of the position taken by Prof. Herron and to argue against it. TODD BUSY AGAIN. Be Sends a Notice to the High School Pain tins; Contractor. There ia trouble between the Painters' union and Geo. P. Conner, the painting contractor at the new high school build-1 ing. Mr. Conner does not employ union men on the work. He refused to make terms with the union, and the matter was brought before Labor Commissioner Todd. It was alleged that Mr. Conner is not paying the men the union scale of $2.50 a day, but instead that he makes a re duction and allows only $2 for eight hours work. The labor commissioner says he has twice notified Contractor Conner that he must comply with the eight hour law and pay the men the established wages for eight hours work. Last evening he sent him the third no tice and he says that if the men are not paid the established wages, legal pro ceedings against him will be com menced. Mr. Conner said today: UI have never received but one notice from the labor commissioner. 1 have not violated the law and I am ready to make a showing whenever it is demanded. "This is a personal fight between the Painters Union and me. They have fought me for five years and now I am at the bat and they are in the field and I propose to keep them there. I have never discriminated between union and non-union men before, but I have not employed them here and do not intend to do so. They came to me with a con tract to hire none but uaion men and asked me to sign it and I positively re fused and this is the result" TO BEGIN IN AUGUST. The Populists to Open Their Campaign in That -Month. Governor Lewelling has announced that he will not enter actively into cam paign work until August. He says that he owes his time to the duties of his office and will hot spend more time than the exigencies of the campaign demand, A few meetings will be held in July, but the campaign will not be formally opened until some time in the following month. The governor was at Leavenworth last night where he was initiated into the order of the Mystic Shrine. He left for home this morning and will spend a few days at Geuda Springs before he returns. FRANK ANSEL INS ANE. Brought Into Town by the Sheriff To day. Sheriff Burdge went out to Silver Lake last night and brought to Topeka Frank Ansel who has become violently insane. Ansel has been ia the asylum before and he has been periodically insane for a number of years. Ansel appears to have had a large por tion of the population of Silver Lake, the female portion, thoroughly terrorized. He is said to have threatened to kill several of them. Ansel will be tried before Judge El liot next week to see if he is a fit subject for the asylum. Rosa, 1 ill Try a Gladstone. Nevada, Ma, June 16.

A Verdict for $6,727 Affainst Dr. McElrie of Newton, For Crushing the Hopes of a Philadelphia Girl. OTHER STATE NEWS. Editorship of a New York Mag azine Offered J. J. Ingalls. Newton. June 16. In the breach of promise suit brought by Miss Lillian Wolfersberger of Philadelphia against Dr. Geo. A. McElree of this city for $10,000 damages, the jury brought in a verdict for $ 6,500 with interest amount ing to $227.50, making $6,727.50. The money was awarded solely for "disap pointment and humiliation of the plain tiff." The case has attracted the great est arfentio here, and several days have been consumed in trying it J. W. Ady conducted the defense. Three'years ago both the plaintiff and defendant were living in Philadelphia. They fell in love and were engaged to be wed. In 1892 Dr. McElree came to Kansas to make enough money co that he and his sweetheart could be married. Ho never went back. In 1892 Dr. McElree attended the teachers' convention at Hutchinson, and hia friendship for Miss Perry, whom he visited then, soon ripened into love, and gradually but completely the Philadel phia girl faded out of his life. He asked to be released from his eastern engagement, but Miss Wolfersberger said him nay. When the fatal change came Dr. Mc Elree is unable to tell. 'I can't say," said he on the stand "why I did not ad dress the plaintiff, 'My Dearest Lillian,' instead of 'Lillian' in that last letter to her nor can I explain why I signed it 'George MacElree,' instead of 'Your own George,' as had been my custom." He went to Emporia Christmas day of 1892 to visit Miss Perry and said the boarders at the house where Miss Perry stayed accused him and his sweetheart of keeping them awake. He was mar ried to Miss Perry in June 1893 and as soon as Miss Wolfersberger found it out she brought the suit for wounded affec tions and a blighted life. CBANGE9 AT KANSAS WESLEIAN.

The New and Horrible Disease That Has Appeared in China. Washington, D. C, June 16. The records of the department of state throw light on the singular plague which is now ravaging China, and make it evi dent that this most fatal disease is really very similar to the black death or plague which devastated London, as told by De foe. It had ita origiq in Yunnan, a Chinese province, where it is endemic. The Catholic missionariea there held that it was really a pestilential emanation slow ly rising in equitable stratum from the ground, and as it increases in depth all animals are, as it were, drowned in its poisonous flood the smaller creatures being first engulfed and man, the tallest of all, suffering last. Ita approach often may be foretold from the extraordinary movements of the rats, who leave their holes and crevices and issue onto the floor without a trace of their accustomed timidity, springing continually upward from their hind legs as if they were trying to jump out of something. The rats fall dead, and then comes the turn of the poultry; after the poultry have succumbed, pigs, goats, ponies and oxeu successively died off. In man its approach is indicated by the eruption of one or more minute red pustules, gen erally in the arm-pits, but occasionally in other glandular regions. If several pustules appear the case is not considered so hopeless as when they are few. The sufferer is soon seized with extreme weakness, followed in a few hours by agonizing aches in every part of the body, delirium shortly ensues, and in nine cases out of ten the result is fa tal. It often happens that the patient suddenly, to all appearances, recovers and leaves his bed, but iu such cases the termlnage is always a collapse and death. As soon as a case appears, the Chinese desert the afflicted, leaving him in a room with a jug of water, and peering iu the window at intervals, and prodding the victim with a long pole to ascertain if life is extinct To make matters worso in the country the corpses are not buried but laid out in the sun to decay, poison ing the air for miles around. The disease was never known before 1660, when it appeared during the great Mohammedan rebellion. It is known in Yangtzu (under the name of bubonic fever) in Laos, in Siarn, in Burmah and in Queycho, China,where it has prevailed for years. Never before, however, has it made its way to Canton and to Hong Korig, whence it may spread over the earth. One reason for attributing its origin to miasmatic influences is the fact that it always appears upon the planting of rice in May and June. It penetrates by caravans and travelers to the uplands and become more severe by fall. Sometimes it passes over certain communities in its line of progress, but only to return later on, or the next year. Whenever it appears the people desert their homes and crops and flee to tents in the hills. In some provinces the pop ulation is decimated and whole families disappear. leafnes Cannot be Cured. by local applications, as they cannot reach the diseased portion of the ear.
