Questions of fact which required Intelligent

I test suit In vlow of the complications and
political scandal connected with the aQuoduct
ho thought It necessary that the selection of
the Jury should be taken out of the bands ot

Mr Cleveland contended that there were no

tested against the reference mad by Mr Hoot
to politic and politician In thl and too other
suits
aulMr
Mr Choate remembered but one struck

Mr Choate maintained that such a jury was
not necessary In this cat There was no sug
gestion of corruption creeping Into a jury her
as was anticipated in the Tweed case
Mr Carter in making the closing argument
referred to the floundering of the Aqueduct
Commissioners In politics but Mr Ghosts In

remarked sternly that be would not hear any

The Rev Churner B Chapman he rector
of Grace Protestant Episcopal Church at
Ocean and Pearsall avenue Jersey City
gained a signal victory over his enemies hut
night
Many prominent members of tho church
and more especially tb member of the
vestry have been trying for four years to get
rid of Mr Chapman They say that his speech
and hearing are defective and that be retards
the progress of the church
The vestrymen suggested t him tat hi
ought to resign Be could resign In a year or i
they would pa him a years salary I he resigned
signed at once
Mr Chapmen appeared at the next meeting
of the vestry thanked the members for their
kindly consideration and said ha would notify
them of his decision in a lew days He never
spoke of the matter afterward
he vestry made an unofficial appeal to
Bishop Btarkey but the Bishop declined to In
terfei because the vestry bad not taken any
trer
oflicial action
P AU this time Mr Chapman Insisted that he
bad the support of the majority or the church
member Finally a tucK understanding was
reached that the dlmculy would b settled at
the Easter election
Hr Chapman and his friend bustled around
and got UP an nl freDa wasthougbt I
that lot a wouldnt bei Ip the Ice but it

It resembled a political primary in many r
ots Mr Chapman presided Ihe first
clash occurred when Mr Cbaoman declared
that only seven vestrymen were to be elected
instead of nine u hertofor
MrVhapman also announced that he was
tbe solo judge of the qualifications of voters
A vigorous protest was mad but Mr Chap
man if his speeb and bearingaredefectlve Is
courageous and positive He would not enter
tain any appeal from Ills decisions
There Was Intense excitement when Mr
Thee who ha been a vestryman for ton
Mon ed up to tote and was challenged
on the ground that he was apt a subscriber r to
the church It was Hector Chapman who said

There wa a big mass meeting of laboring
men In Cooper Union last night the like of
which ha never been seen In New York before
Nearly 8600 journeymen painters who want
to work only eight hours a day after April 0
for 360 which they aro now receiving
nine hours work and a mere handful of mae
tor painter who are willing to let the men
work as fw hour as they care to but with a
corresponding decrease In wages came to
gether for the purpose of sustaining thslr re
spective sides by argument But the tcsiilt
wan what every ODe bal foreseen The men
showed a disposition to guy their employer
end the employers were too timid to state
their views openly and boldly There was a
great deal of beating about lie bush and no
result was reaohed
August Mayer a member of the German
Fresco Painters Union presided There were
<
lix speakers In I three on each side John
J Seattle a master painter eroko frt His
speech was very much like the work of a
dentist In filling a cavity As long as he fid
dled around the wall all wall but
anlnd wall al was P soon
as he touched the nerve the ratlent kicked
Be said
I can see no reason why painters should
work one hour longer on buildings than other
mechanics But there Is no antagonism In the
matter of elcht hours a day The question Is
Bliallltbe eight hours a day at 350 or any
other method 7 FIre yearn ago employers and
men could not have come together like gentle
men as they do tonight Tho standard ol
wages should be at that figure at which we can
remafn honest Now our proposition Is this
Hake your wages so a day
Ther were several cries of No no and
the Chairman made a little speech nailing for
order Mr ate was not again Interrupted
The next speaker John Hanlan of the Oper
ative Palate Union said many severe things
about employer among thorn this
You cannot rely on an employer word
That is I only so much air His actions must
speak
Louis Hopnvr a master painter tried to
prove that If the men got what they wanted
the bosses would lose money and then they
would not be able t gIve the men work In
which ease the men couldnt get what they

THE RHODE ISLAND ELECTION
No Election or Governor By the Paonlo
The Ittatur Bcpabllaan
PsovxDiNcx April 1The absence of tte
graph and telephone facilities In many
town In the State renders a complete
statement of tbe result of todays election
Impossible before tomorrow afternoon
even ware the count finished but the Austra
lian system of voting causes so much delay in
the counting ot the ballots that at midnight
the figures are very Incomplete
Nevertheless It Is apparent at this hour that
there has been no election of the State ticket
bribe people unlessvery great and unex
pected changes are shown In the returns yet
t be reoelved
It Is I equally apparent that unless the figures
yet to come are greatly chanced tbe Hepubll
cans have carried the Assembly by a safe
working majority In each House thus insuring
the mao election of the Republican ticket
In this city the vote was comparatively light
laM
t
and a great deal ot scratching was done As the I
count on the Assembly ticket will not be com
pleted before 9 or 6 oclock tomorrow morning
nothing definite can be stated beoud the fact
that tbe Heoublleane have probably elected
holt of their Assembly ticket and possibly the
benate
t This Is largely the result of the big family
quarrel among the Providence Democrats the
defeat of Boss MoNally for Mayor last fall and
his known determination to knife the party
ticket this spring to secure revenge and show
ht 1 Is I charged that hi Influence has also been
extended beyond Ibis city ana Wnonsooktt
which should have given lor Davis 200
najnrity gave him sn only showing conolu
ively that pnvls was knifed by the friends of
ination Mayor Pond who was I candidate tho nom
One thing 1 certain national Issues bare
played no significant nat this election The
Itepnbllcans prosecuted a still hunt aided by
perfect organization and an abundance of
money and took advantage cleverly of their
opponents local weaknesses
The Democrats hal no money at all and
very little pretense of organization and made
a tame campaign of It meeting wlb divided
forces the solid front of the old Itepubllcan
ring and tho result Is no surprise to
those who were thoroughly familiar with the
inside facts on both sides On national Issues 1
there rel little doubt that with
thorough organization and an ener
getic < campaign with a reasonable
amount of money to meet legitImate expenses
the Democrats can reclaim the Btate but only
by harmonious action and vigorous well
directed work can this reasonably be expected
t b done

8Hnatlonraal a Taaa af the Italian
New aperV rr Ltttls Talk it War
ViceConsul Qerolamo Naielll said yesterday
that communication had passed between
Baron Fava nudthe Consulate but hi refused
to make them public
Tbe situation he said is I Interesting but
there la I nothing In I at the moment to oc
casion fears of any rat International dim
culty To b sure International situations
vary from moment t moment and I would ot
protend to prophesy but Just now I am not at
all apprehensive I It I not true that Baron
rays I recalled In the sense that recalling
means a practical declaration of war
I he wore then the legation would b closed
a one whereas I Is open and In charge of
another Our office here would b olosed but
you see we are open Diplomatic relations
continue between Italy and the United States
and wi continue a long aa the legation re
mains open at Washington Baron lavas de
mand for his paMport I 1 mad not aa though
I closed the legation but as though be were
going to leave the country upon a leave of absence
sence The simple recall of a Minister may ba
mae for many reason I dont pretend to
say why Duron Pays wa recalled I dont
know why 1 mar have my opinion but It Is
only an opinion The consulate has no knowl
edge whatever upon the subject
I Is not then your opinion that Italy ha
recalled Baron Faa with the purros of
bringing this country to term 1
Italy lid Mr NulL Is desirous of
maintaining friendly relation with the United
States This aotlondocs not mean war What
may develop I cannot say but there are mal
many stops between the reoalllngot a Minister
without closing the legation and war
What does Italy wanfr
Italy wants protection for bar citizens In
America That is all It II I not at probable
that she will demand any Indemnity A nation
naton
does that only when its flag is I Insulted There
was no Insult t the Italian flag In the New
Orleans outrage Tho only demand that will
be made If things go no further than at pres
ent will be the punishment of the murderers
and a suitable indemnity to the families of
those murdered
Mr Naaelll said he knew nothing of Baron
Favas intentions It was learned from another
source tbat he will coma to New York today or
tomorrow two and may remain here a week or
twoDr Baffaele Asselta President of the United
Italian boclotlos declared leslerday that this
Issue was due to the incapacity of huron Pave
The Italians of this city he said are
persuaded thqt the recall of Saron Fava means
serious oomplicatlons with Italy If not war
Many believe war is I Inevitable We do not
want war Most of us are American citizens
and would consider It the greatest misfortune
in the world If war should arise between our
native and our adopted country We believe
that I a better man than Faa bud represented
11In
us In Washington this crisis would never
have come about i do not attribute any
thing worse than bad management to him
mind ou ue undoubtedly meant well
but he was not the man for so big a respond
bll ty He oould not grapple with this situa
tion for the boat Interests of all Be was not
broad enaugh We should have had a AW tea
man to represent us in this country What I
mean is that Pave bad it In his power to hold
the Issue in abeyance U U the IWo at bad
come if over such a time should come He
cauld hare advised his Government bet
ter aa t the temper of this nation
and a to its 1 custom and laws
He could bare advised ffcem t watt
until something wa aetnnlly dope her before
taking a radloaVatap He could have assured
them that the United State as well a every
Italian in the country earnestly desired 1
peaceful eettlemsnt of the difficulty and that
such settlement probably could have been
i brought aiout in time It they would but await
I the result of the legal proceedings In the Btate
I tle Louisiana I do not think too time is I rioe
now for another mal meeting of Italians rDe
I
this city but if tlipr Is another mass meeting
1 can assure you It will be a tremendous one
1 b trmMDdoul
and Its object will be to beg the Italian Government
t
except ern mIni war to settle this difficulty by any means
Do you think asked the reporter that a
party ueslr on the part of the pew Ministry to
accomplish something as has been suggested

Here Is I what the trt < < ior < Cobimlo Ill I
lJre think that the lecall of llarnn Fava
from tbe United Htates does not mean a rupture
of diplomatic relations between the two coun

nify that Italy has any ill feellnu toward the
United Btntes but It may heat the yam y most
Unlod Baron eva baa not proved himself to

WABBTNOTOW Anrll President Harrison
and his Cabinet Ministers and other official
In Washington having recovered from the
surprise caused by the announcement that the
Italian Government had recalled its Minister
resident Baron Pare are today Inclined to re
gard the situation with considerable equanim
ity Each of them of course decline to talk
upon the subject for publication Privately
however they do not hesitate to express the
opinion that the game of bluff which Italy Is I
playing unworthy ot that country They re
gard the action ol the Italian Minister of For
ism affairs aa a bit of picturesque jingoism ne
cessitated by theory of populace for redress
for wrongs that have not been committed and
In order to popularize the new Administration
with thepeopl An attempt U being mad la
certain quarter In Washington to make what
Is regarded by the coolerheaded statesmen as
a masts diplomatic flurry Into an International
row of large dimensions involving perhaps a
threat If not a declaration ot war President
Harrison and Secretary Blaine have no sym
pathy with this feeling and they profess to be
entirely confident that the recall of Baron
Rave wilt have no more serious consequence
than a rather annoying and embarrassing dip
lomatic quarrel followed by strained relations
for a time between Governments of the
United States and Italy
The President and Secretary Blame attach
no particular Importance to the fact that the
Italian Government Is now unrepresented In
Washington by a fultfltdged Minister They
of conne take it for granted that In recalling
Baron Fava the Italian Government Intended
to at one put an end to the amicable diplo
matic relation existing between the two coun
tries but having left the Ugatlon In charge of
the first Secretary with orders to transact
current business they evidently Intended to
preserve at least a show of respect toward this
Government The President and Secretary ot
State it is 1 learned do not care whether this la
the case or not and after a consulta
tion today they decided that aa there
was no cause for the recall of Baron Pave the
United State Government having done all
that It could do when Mr Blaine wrote to Coy
Nlflholls nothing remain now but to allow
the Italian Government to send war ship up
the mouth ol the Mississippi Blver or take
whatever other steps they may deem neces
sary to emphasize their 111 feeling toward
the United States To a friend who
called upon him today the President Inti
mated that as far as be was concerned no un
usual pain will be taken to appease
the wrath ot the Italian To show the Presi
dents indifference torthe subject regarding
which there is absolutely nothing more to be
done It la averted that the plan for tIme
Presidents departure from life city are now
being made and whether Baron Favu leaves
Washington today or next weak or does not
go at all President Harrison will start on his
tour of observation about the 16th of April
Secretary Blame ha determined that aa the
Italian Government would not accept as sin
cere his assurances that the American Gov
ernment regret the murder of the Italians In
N w Orleans and is 1 disposed to treat with con
sideration Italy claim for redress and in
demnity there is i nothing furtlior that he can
do except to band Baron lava his passport
and inthe language ot the bIde Department
reiterate to him and his belligerent Gov
ernment the assurances of bU es
teem and consideration Mr Blaine IB ot
the opinion that any other negotiation that
may take place or are necessary can it required
be conducted through the medium of the
American Minister at Home or If that method
is not found desirable the Secretary of State
can communicate directly with the Italian
Minister of Foreign Affair In bis letter to
day In answer to JUarouJavae note he reeog i
nires the continuation of the legation here by
addressing his communication to Marquis

ttr SecreteS Of mtu
By my two notes ot the 15th and IBth Instant
I had the honor to call your Excellencys me
none attention to the occurrences excep
tional gravity which took place at New Orleans
on the Uthwhereby four subjects of the King o
Italy who were confined in the prison of that
ity were massacred by the crowd under the
leadership of two American citizens
After having formally protested against the
unjustflabie conduct the local authorities
which were evidently recreant to all their du
ties on that ocoaalon I reserved to tho Gov
ernment of his Majesty the right to demand
such satisfaction as it might think proper
