Washington. Admiral Dewey wag In conference
with Judge Advocate Lemly for some time re
specting the arrangements which Captain Lemly
hap made for the seating- of the press represen
tatives and spectators in the court room, and as
to other details. V, '"
Unless the President'^ condition should change
materially for the worse the court will meet on
Thursday next, exactly as ordered in the pre
cept, and the inquiry will begin at once. \] It
had been supposed that several days would be
consumed in organizing the court and In dila
tory adjournments pending ! ,the beginning of
the real work of the inquiry. The determination
of the court, however, Is to setle down to work
immediately. If objection is made to any mem
ber of the court, that objection probably will be
disposed of by the court itself in short order.
It certainly will not be allowed to delay the
beginning of the inquiry many hours, much less
days, according to the present temper of the
During the conference between Admiral
Dewey, president of the Schley. court, and Cap
tain I>>m!y. jud^e advocate of the court, at the
Navy Department. to-day, it was arranged that
the sessions of the court after Thursday, when
the court ••>•• assembles at 1 o'clock, should be
held daily from 10 to 12. o'clock. and from 1 to 3
o'clock, or thereabouts. The court will-sit con
tinuously from day to day, Sundays excepted,
until the investigation is concluded."/' v-.
Another officer cf the court was created to
day by an order detailing Captain Henry W.
Carpenter, of the Marine Corps, to duty as
provost marshal of the court, to preserve order
and decorum. He will also exercise immediate
command over the small squad of marines, de
tailed to various duties in and about the court
room. . ' . .
Among the witnesses examined by the Judge
Advocate General to-day was .'"Commander
Schroeder, Naval Governor of Guam, who was
executive officer of the battleship Massachusetts

present, at the battle, of Santiago.- Other pros
pective witnesses who reported at the Navy
Department are Commander Southerland, for

list of witnesses. «>',*£." ""••..
Captain Francis A. Cook, who commanded
Admiral Schley's flagship, the Brooklyn, in the
Santiago campaign, and -Lieutenant-Command

consultation with Admiral Schley's counsel. It

Buffalo. Sept. o.— Acting Secretary Hackett of
the Xavy ha« been pressing Attorney-General
Knox both hy telegraph and letter to appoint
one of the assistant attorney-generals to assist
Captain Lemly. the judge-advocate of the Schley
court of inquiry, in the conduct of the case be
fore th»» court; but the Attorney-General has
declined to take a step which he believes would
look like government prosecution of the officer
on trial.
The government, in his opinion, should have
no part in the trial. It is an inquiry under the
Navy Department, made at the request of Ad
miral Schley, and the government has nothing
to do with it. The President himself recom
mended Admiral Schley for promotion, and now
for the Department of Justice to detail an officer
under it to assist in the conduct of the case
would inevitably be construed as a desire on the
part of the administration to convict that of
The AttorneyTGeneral was sustained in his
position by all the members of the Cabinet

. The task of filling eleven . teeth of a horse
•with gold and silver was finished yesterday.
The horse was Anna, a sorrel mare, owned by
Jefferson Seligman, the banker. Anna is Mrs.
Seligman's favorite saddle | horse. • Mr. Seligman
and' his family are. at Long Branch. Anna is a
handsome animal, and has taken first prize for
saddle j horses In the Madison Square Garden
horse show. She had not eaten for three weeks.
The veterinary surgeon who- examined her
found .that eleven of the mare's teeth— five
upper Incisors and six lower ones— were un
sound.- He took a number of large drills,
several other instruments . and ; several ham
mers, with, a quantity of gold, and silver.- to
Long Branch, and began the operation of clean
ing out the cavities and "filling them. _ -
The mare's teeth were in need of a good deal
of drilling. Cocaine was administered to her.
Her legs were not tied, -and she stood during
the entire operation. Two cavities were filled
with gold/sufficient to fill ten teeth for a man.
A proportionate quantity of silver was put in
the other nine teeth. 4 , -;. v ," ;

tenced in the Court of Special Sessions yester
day to thirty days In the penitentiary for assault
ing Ida Graham. At the time Bowen told his story
a grave was dug up in the Lutheran Cemetery,
Long Island, and a body removed from a casket.
An Infant was found under the pillow. This was
thought to be a corroboratlon of Bowen's state
ment. Assistant District Attorney Cowan said that
he found that Bowen had lied. Bowen himself put
the Infant's body under the pillow, and when
Lucking refused to aid him in the assault case
he put the odium on his employer. Mr. Cowan said
he would proceed against Bowen for wilfully neg
lecting to disclose deaths in accordance with law.

Baltimore. Sept. 9 (Special).— Mayor Hayes ad
mitted to-day that he had received a definite propo
sition for the purchase at J5.000.000 of Baltimore
City's controlling interest in the Western Mary
land Railroad. The indebtedness of the company to
the city, including deferred interest,' is J5.310.092 90.
The Mayor will not say who makes the offer, but It
is believed to be a syndicate in which New-York
capitalists and the Canton company, of this city,
are acting for the Reading Railroad. The Western
Maryland owns valuable franchises for lines to
tidewater, and the Canton Company owns water
front adjoining the piers and elevators of the Penn
sylvania Railroad Company. The Pennsylvania
now controls the elevators and piers on both sides of
of the harbor by its control of -the Baltimore and
Ohio properties. Under' the proposed plan the Mor
gan-Reading interests would secure a tidewater out
let at Baltimore. Mayor Hayes advocates the sale
of the Western Maryland to parties not interested
in the Baltimore and Ohio-Pennsylvania combina
tion. :.-- .. .'.¦¦:•."-^r ••:>¦¦!:

PittFburjr. Sept. 9 -The last effort to settle the
¦teal strike hns failed. The General Executive
Board Of the Amalgamated Association adjourned
without date this evening, and without accepting
any of the peace propositions, which have come
indirectly from the Cnlted States Steel Corpora
tion, aad without maktnK any counter propositions,
according to the official statement.
The xrmi-offir-liil report Is that the proposition
secured for the Amalgamated Association tafWßja
the intervention of the representative? of the Na
tional Civic Federation wa« unsatisfactory, and
that the entire matter of arranging for settle
ment was left with President Shaffer. The board
in its session of three days han been clumoriiiK
for a settl.m.nt. but satisfa?tory i.-rms and means
were not at hand, and the sessions resolved them
selves into an informal discussion of the situation.
At the close of the meettag of the national ex
ecutive board thir. evening President Shaffer de
clared that he had no statement to make, but SOB
se.juently said: »
"The board hus adjourned, and tbe out of town
members will probably start for their homes to
night. No peace proposition has been received and
none made."
Still later he added that no member of the board
would go to New-York in the night to submit a
peace propcpsition, saying that he would be at
headquarters as usual to-morrow.
The meettag sf the board did not adjourn In
higjl good fielinp. yet the members of the board
were averse to making- statements supplemental to
that of President Shaft'.r.
It was Stated by some of the memhers of the
board that the adjournment had left matters prac
tl.ally as they were before the meeting had been
called, and that the strike must go on as before,
leaving arrangements for a possible settlement
through a direct conference with the representa
tives of the United States Steel Corporation with
President Siuiffer.
To-day completed the first thirty days since the
Amerleaa Sheet Steel Company, the American Tin
Plate Company and the American Steel Hoop Com
pany began their attempt to stHrt the union plants
of the i-oimtry in the face of the Amalgamated As
sociation strike. Aside from the Clark plant sf the
Steel Hoop. Company and the Upper and Lower
I'nlon mlils of the Carnegie company, where th*
attempt to render the strike effective was never a
success, the three companies have In the month
succeeded In placing in operation seventy-six mills
In the union plants, single turn. Indications are
that the number will be doubled within the next
ten days, If the strike is not settled before that
While the Tin Plate company has put up the most
aggrcpslve fight of the three, the Steel Hoop com
pany has been most Bill ( QSBftli in the Eastern dis
trict, and in the West the Sheet Steel Company h>is
met with the larprer success. With the results
known in these preliminary skirmishes at a few
chosen points all three companies have now pre
pared to carry the flpht into every union plant
without further Aelay, # £'
At McKeesport this evening the strikers, follow
ing up their advantage of the morning In keeping
the workmen from entering the National Tube.
Works gathered about the gates of the plant In
great Bombers aad warned the few men who came
nut not to return to work to-morrow mornlnjj. It
is generally believed the company will appeal to the
sheriff or "Governor within forty-eight hours for
Pittsburg, Sept. 9.— The strike situation in Mc-
Keesport reached an acute stage this morning, and
serious trouble was feared as a result of the efforts
of the striking tube workers 10 prevent men from
returning to work, as they did on Saturday. Thi
effort was almost perfectly successful, and whore
last week from eight hundred to one thousand men
went back into the mill, not more than a dozen
were able this morning to elude the multitude of
pickets and get back to their work. Then was
preat excitement in McKeesport this morning as a
result of this turning out of the strikers— more
than at any timo before.
Something over two thousand strikers congre
gated about the great plant of the National Tube
Company shortly after midnight, and remained
there until this morning, when the employed who
¦went to work last week reported for duty at 7
o'clock. Every approach to the mill was guarded
most vigilantly, ana around the main entrance
more than six hundred strikers and sympathizers
Kait.frcd. The streets adjacent to the mill were
crowded, and as men approached to go to work
they were met and turned back. Almost all of the
great force which returned, last week reported for
duty again, and there were many more who were
willing to go back, but they were met by the
pickets as they advanced near the rr.lll, and forced
to return home. Not over a dozer, escaped the
vigilance of the pickets and succeeded in getting
into the mill.
About fifty policemen were on duty about the
mill, but no arrests were made. As a result of the
disturbance this mor-ing the big tube mill is idle
and completely tied up. .lust what the National
Tube Company will do now Is a matter of con
jecture. It Is believed by many that an attempt
will be made to start the mill with imported men,
and that an appeal will be made to Sheriff McKin
ley for protection.
At the meetings of lodges of the Federation of
Labor in McKeesport yesterday tho question of re
turning to work In the tube mill was voted on. The
butt welders voted to return, but were prevented
from doing so this morning by the strikers, who
gathered about the mill. The employes of the- roll
ing mill of the National Tube Company voted to a
man not to return.
At Demmler a crowd of fully eight hundred strik
en gathered about the plant, and while they were
orderly, they refused to- obey the .orders of the
fifty deputy sheriffs on guard. Fewer workmen
reported from McKeesport than last week, though
more came by boat from Duquesne.
An the morning advanced the excitement in Mc-
Keesport increased, and by noon the streets were
crowded. A large crowd assembled around the.
railroad station, and carefully watched ull trains
for imported men. Strik>Ts In skiffs also patrolled
the river. Excitement has not been so tense since
the strike began, and the possibility trf trouble
seems to be gtcat.
At 2 o'clock i his afternoon McKeesport had fewer
strikers on the streets than this morning, the ma
jority of ih>- men who did picket work around the
tube works having gone home to sleep. They had
been up most of the night, anil the supposition
was that they were also preparing for a like vigil
to-night. Fully five hundred men remained about
the Baltimore and Ohio station, however, waiting
lor something to turn up. The specially deputized
citizen policemen patrolled the streets with a vig
ilant eye.

Justice Jerome, Assistant District Attorney Gar
van and Frank Moss, accompanied by detectives
from the Society for the Prevention of Crime, last
night took up raiding In the Fifteenth Precinct
(Captain Diamond's district) and descended on an
alleged gambling house at No. 207^ East Nlnth-9t.
Five prisoners were made, four on warrants Is
sued by Justice Jerome, and the fifth on suspicion
of being implicated In the management of the
house. The prisoners were locked up in the Flfth
st. station, vp/h.-re they described themselves as
John S. Crulso, of No. 238 West Twenty-fifth-st.:
"King" Elliot, of No. 132 West Twenty-fourth-st.;

Harris, of No. 226 Pet Wild and Frank Martin,
of No. 25 East Thlrd-st. Martin was the one ar
rested without a warrant. The raiders found the
door barricaded, but used sledges and hammers.
There were about thirty men In the room. They
were allowed to go after the four "Elliots" had
been picked out by Detective Hammond, who was
also in the raiding party.
Detective Dillon said that when they entered the
1 place two men drew revolvers. He asserted that
the place was run by "Jim" Elliot, who formerly
kept places at Twelfth-st. and Fourth-aye. and
Elghth-ave. and Sixteenth-st.. Detective Dillon is
also authority for the statement that Frank Moss
had a narrow escape from an attack from two
men, who had been in the place when the raid
¦ was made. Moss, he said, stayed behind at the
station house, waiting until some of the gambling
tables and chips had been taken there. Then he
walked away. Behind him walked two men, who
were closely followed by a detective of the so
ciety, who saw one of the men raise his arm. as if
to strike MOSS. The detective rushed forward and
grasped the man's arm and hurled him to one side.
There was a complete gambling layout, he said,
and games were running when the detectives
entered the place. One hundred and four
dollars in cash was confiscated from the tables, with
some papers and books, and two patrol wagon loads
of paraphernalia, including some two bushels of
The prisoners will be arraigned to-day before

Justice McAdam, in the Supreme Court, yes
terday granted a writ directing Police Com
missioner Murphy to review the case of Henry
Woodley. a policeman, who was dismissed from

the ground that the law did not give to the
Commissioner the right to delegate trial powers
to his subordinates. D?v?ry tried Woodley and
recommended his removal from the force.

Commissioner Devery at Police Headquarters yes
terday, was found to contain a powder of grayish
color and some ordinary parlor matches Bitted wim

he thought somebody had tried to scare him with a

to the Bureau of Combustibles for examination.
Counsel for Blssert, the convicted police detective,
yesterday asked for a further stay, pending an ap
peal of the case. Justice Truax, in the Supreme

Paterson, Sept. 9 (Special).— The girl sinkers at
the Frank & Dugan silk mill held a mcc': |
day to vote on the question whether they should
give up the struggle and go b.-i'-k to work, now that
nearly all the mil's refuse to support them. It
was a stormy session. The general sentiment wan
that they would never return to the mill unless
they won the strike, no matter who desf rted them.
They had come out to help the men to win their
tU'ht, and now the men had gone back on them, as
they had often suspected they would, but they
would fight their own battle, and a suggestion was
made that they apply to the non-union mills for
support. This "was acted upon, and arrangements
to see the yenvers at several of the mills which
are not affiliated wirh the union were made. A
vote on the nuestion whether they should go bacK
to the mill showed 11 for and 59 against.

here, and the bridegroom waa Leander Carter, of
Matawan. Invitations for the wedding had beta
sent out.. and the coming marriage announced la t
-the local papers.
When the time arrived for the marrla-* tjj Q
/church was crowded with .frucyts. The Rev. J. R.
'Dangerfleld. pastor of the church, was to marry
the couple. la the early evening a carriage was
sent to Morgan it. to sks the couple to th*
.church. When the coachman reached Miss Jack
son's horn- all seemed dark. .Suddenly a window
was raised in an epper room and a treablln^
.voice called out: - . . - r .- .
,' "Is thai you Leander?" It was the bride. Th«
coachman answered, "No: it is the carriage to take
you and Mr. Carter to the church." •
The young woman was sobbing. In her tears sks
said that Carter ha I left her on Saturday, saytes;
that he was going: to New- York to buy a sal; 0 !
clothing to wear at the wedding. - ... had noc
since returned.
-¦ Miss Jackson iras then overcome with emotion
The coachman drove back to th« church and wbav
per* '. the facts of the case In the minister's ear
The guests ny this •.::.. felt something was wroaa!
The minister, after a ' pause, said: "Friends
seems that' the bride .... deserted by her" in
tended, and she. IS now overcome at her hoasV
the wedding mu*t be postponed.*, while I am out
my wedding fee and : the bride is suffering, all on
account of Mr Carter." „•

in this community for 'several years and are ¦well
and favorably known. '
Tassaic, Sept. 9 (Special).— An Italian living tn
Mercer-st., Wellington, near Passalc. raised a
large red flag on Saturday afternoon in his garden
to keep away birds that were robbing his grape
vines. He little thought that he would be taken
for' an anarchist. To-day a delegation of citizens
waited on Mayor Collins, of Wallington. and de
manded that the Hag be removed. They said it
meant anarchy, and that if not taken away be
fore C o'clock the man would suffer. A number
of citizens also called at the man's house and
demanded that the flag be hauled down.
The workmen employed in two sawmills close by
formed an alliance and prepared to move on th»
house at 8 o'clock and wreak vengeance on the
owner. Mayor Collins harried to thft place and
succeeded in inducing the str.rtled Italian to hide
the rag
He declared that he was a naturalized American
and had only love for the government. He is will-
Ing that the birds should have all his grapes rather
than be taken for an anarchist.

An heroic effort was made tn Newark yesterday
to make a confiding public believe that ex-United
States Senator Smith had designs upon the Demo
cratic nomination for Governor of New-Jersey for
himself, and that his desire to be the candidate
was a part of his hostility to the nomination of
Mayor Seymour. A few days ago Mr. Smith said
that he had no further political ambition, but
there w- p .-• aw> Democrat* in Newark yester
day who smiled knowingly when this statement
by the ex-Senator was recalled. It is true that
Mr. Smith ye.-terday declined to say whether he
¦was or was not a candidate for Governor, but h«
gave out this nri'h information: "I want to see a
Democratic Governor this fall, and I propose to
¦\- -• i ay influence to effect his election. I hare
¦ ¦ making rass of the State with the view
of ascertaining the political sentiment in the sev
eral counties, but I will have nothing further to
say until I have learned the true situation."
The only visible Republican candidate for Major
of Jersey City i 3 Mark Fagan; who yesterday said:
"I am an asDirant for the Republican nomination,
for Mayor of Jersey City, and I am doing all I can
to get the nomination. I hope it will come my way.
It seems to me that with earnest work and a
united effort we can win In Jersey City this fall.
If I am nominated I shall go to work with a will
in the hope of winning. I shall do the same do
matter, who may be nominated by the Republicans.
I believe that this is a Republican year."
