baltere I would have lnvetted It, either. The

then for a apeelal eettlon In all probability the

tvhlch the governor referred to tho
directors for investigation. When the

his answer as follows:

that tho hogs were puronased a al

warden believed the stato could make
moro money by feeding them to the
hogs. SU months after date of their
purchase the net profit to the stato
from the sale of the hogs was $193.32,
while the slop for tho same period
would havo realized undcreontract 830.

In answer to this Warden Chaso
make this statement: "Under a con
tract with tho company the board pur
chased 10,000 pounds of bacon. Upon
its delivery I refused payment In full
because tho bacon did not como up to
the requirement. Tho board at Its
next session authorized me to secure a
rebato of u cent per pound. In tho
event that 1 xuld not do this to secure
the best p pslblo terms. After much
corrcspon i nco, on file, I saw the Ar
mour pco . in person and It was agreed
to give the state credit for 825. Mr. Yar

that proper credit was given; that it
was not done first came to my knowl
edge through tho charge. I at onco
mado an investigation and found that
Armours had a credit to tha state on
their books of S2S- Tho money was col
lected on June 0, as the records will
show, both in the office ot tho Armours
and tho penitentiary.
Specification n nlloges that the war
den employed his daughter as "assist
ant keeper contrary to the rules gov
erning tho penitentiary.
This the warden answers that the
employment of his daughter, Miss
Carry, as "assistant keeper" Is correct;
that she 1 his cash accountant and
performs exactly the same duty per
formed by tho young ladles employed
by his predecessors, Chase, Smith and
Jones, in the same position.
Specification 4 nllegcs that he al
lowed certain officers to take their
meals at the hospital kitchen and ob
tain from tho penitentiary storo and
butcher shop, farm nnd cow barn,

Warden Chase denies it and says the
allegations are absolutely false in every
Specification 5 alleges that lie ap
pointed to the position of assistant
matron a woman of ill-repute, thereby
causing public scandal, to the detri
ment of tho discipline of tho peniten
tiary. Warden Chase answers: "I appointed
this woman upon recommendations
coming from &ome of tho best people in
the state, just as I appointed others on
like recommendation. So far as I know,
she is a reputable woman and remained
In tho state's employ until she left on
her own account
Specification fl alleges usurpation qv

probably tho result of efforts made by

He says his son Is a competent engineer,,

The' second and last specification
laid under Ilnnn's chargo alleges that
at divers times tho warden placed in
competent and inexperienced men In
charge of the workings of said mines
that required experts, thereby andan
gering life and valuable property, etc
In answer to this allegation. Warden
Chaso says; "Ilupn was employed by
me after Mr. Lamm resigned. It
wasn't long when I discovered that ef
forts were being made by him to sccuro
the closing down of the mine to assist
the men in tho striko then going on in
Missouri and somo portions of tho
state, alleging as an excuse the mlnp
to be unsafe." Tho warden says Ilunn
made no secret of his relation to the
strike and that "Ilunn knew ho was
lying about the condition o' the mlno"
as his predecessor found no such causes
for complaint. Finally tho warden
asks for the fullest investigation of thq

almost universally conceded that tbe Pullman
Co., through the oft repeated reduction of

, crlevously wronged It employe, and whatover
may bo aald about the great strike which ha
resulted In com tquenoe of such grievance, the
arbitrary refusal ot aald Pullman company to

We propose that the Pullman company snail

not necessitate a striko with Its attendant Ills.
We have fslth In the American people: thev

in tbe name of Justice and fair play, we appeal
to the great American public, to every good

We propose to continue this fight against the

is in .accordance with an appeal Issued
by President Oompcrs, of tho American
Federation of Labor, which wilt bo
published in tho August number of tho
American Fcderant, tho official organ
of the federation. It reads us follows:
Eugene V. Debs stands as one ot the most

THE BLACK DEATH.

WASiHKflTOjr, July 21. Rccoapilsinf;
the difficulties in tho way of obtaining
accurate Information upon saattary
matters from Oriental countries, Dr.
Stuart Eldrldge, the health office Of
tho port of Yokohama and member of
the Imperial board of health of TokJo,
has sent to the marine hospital barew
a seml-ofllolal statement of thocpMemisl
of plnguo In southern China. It ap
pears from his report that this seourg
is one of tho most fearful oa reeord,
having Its greatest hold at the port of q
Hong Kong. The dincaso broke 0tt hi fy
Canton lato last February. Dorlttar '
March and April it steadily lucre!
until li assumed gigantic projaor
tlons. According to tho letter of Dr.
Eldrldge, the. eastern authnrMes
treated the disease with their ordinary
indifference. Several casco appear!
in Hong Kong during tho first days of
May, but not until tho 10th ot, tha
month was airy official action ti )..
It has steadily Increased In that ptooa
until tho mortality has reached 100 .
day deipito tho exodus of 100,000 Chi
nese and many Europeans. The na
tlves In most cases have left on feeling
tho vvroptoms of tho disease. In the
hope of dying In their native village,
whllo a dozen Europeans have beea at
tacked and most of them have died.
"If I may presume to advise," says
pr. Eldrldge, "I would say that the
most stringent measures may need to
be taken to protect tho United States,
particularly as regards certain classes
of goods from China likely to convey
Infection, rags, old cotton, etc., and
also such manufactured articles as are
mado in the native workshops, with
perhaps a caso of plague dying in thn
same room; such things aro straw mat
ting, embroideries, and every sort I
toxtllo fa Vie."

current and Its authenticity is vouched
for ly an official attached to ono of tho
most Influential ot the labor organiza
tions In this city, that organized labor
throughout the country Is to unite In
en effort for the conversion of tho mili
tia to tho labor Interests. This in to bo
accomplished by the enlistment of la
bor men in the national guard of the
several states. The movement was in
augurated in the west morn than a
year ago, and labor leaders In this city
who favor the scheme point to the re
cent conduct of the natlonul, guard ia
California, who refnso to do duty la
quelling the railroad rlotsas a' evi
dence of what the plan may accom
plish. It has been stated that as a result of
the conference following the recent
outbreak In Chicago, an order was pro
mulgated throughout the labor or
ganization in tho east directing the
men to enlist in the mllltla. This la
denied by, th.es labor leaders, but Htm
fact remains tha application for ad

ul guard in tin . state have recently
been more numerous than ever, and
among them nro many members of
Some of the applicants aro members
of the Knights of Labor, and this Is re
garded as significant, because ot tho
fact that after the railroad riots in
1390 tho district assemblies of that or
der passed resolutions requesting their
members to refrain from enlisting in
thenational guard, and of those already
enlisted it was asked that they should
retire at the expiration ot their terms,
of enlistment, or carljer, If possible.
