I coalition ot the Citltens' Union with the Hepub
II Ilcans will bo an Impossibility If tbo Union
nominates Seth Low In advanco o( tbo Ropubll-
can City Contention.
I The Cits' managers were perhaps prepared
I for this statement of President Qultrtr In vlow of
hlspreTlous warning utterances on this sub
ject. They did not, however, expect tho blow
which camo from Rrookl) n when City Works
Commissioner Theodore II. Willis Issuod tho fol
lowing statement for publication:
" The apparent purpose of the Citizens' Union
to nominate Seth Low nt n dnto earlier thun the
meeting of tho Republican City Convention on
Sept. 28, and to nominate without regard to the
action of our convention, places tho Republicans
ot Urooklyn la a very embarrassing position.
We are not for Sir. Iaw as tho candldato of a
hostile polllUal organization, declaring In tbo
samo breath with vhleh they nominate htm that
tho Republican party has no function to per
form with regard to municipal uffalrs. Wo have
been for Mr. Low as a Republican and as tho
candldato of tho Republican party, but we shall
bo much embarrassed to voto for him In a city
convention If prior to its meeting ho Is already
beforo tbo pcoplo na the candidate of a hostllo
body, which has nominated him, without even
offering to confer with us, and on the principle.
Indeed, that municipal affairs are nono of our
concern. As I understand it. this is tho position
that Brooklyn Republicans have generally taken
In relation to Sir. Low's candidacy."
This statement was prepared after a thorough
discussion ot the situation, participated In by
Mr. Willis, Walter B. Atterbury, Congressmen
Francis 11. Wilson and Denis M. Hurley, and
Tax Collector It. Ross Apploton. Mr. Willis
was nomlnatod as spokesman for the conferees,
and he confined himself to the statement print
ed abovo In announcing tho result of the con-
This statement of the anti-Worth Republicans
of Brooklyn camo with stunning force to tho
Citizens' Union statesmen who have depended
all along on the united support of tho Repub
licans of Kings county for their candidate.
Thsy saw In this declaration tho possibility that
their crest and good trlcnd. County Clork
Jacob Worth, might not bo ublo to deliver the
delegation to tho City Convention from Brook
lyn for Low, and, worse, that Worth will
be powerless to help them materially by
bolting; for he would thus loso control of tho
county organisation to tho Willls-WUeon-At-terbury
combination, nd tho rank and lllo
would stay with the organization and tho new
There Is no doubt that the anti-Worth combi
nation expect to control tho County Convention,
and are taking advantage of the County Clerk's
adherence to tbo Citizens' Untou movement to
help accomplish this purpose.
President Qulgg, In his talk beforo referred to,
Isold, among other things, that bo Is desirous of
a coalition against the Tammany candidate for
I "I am suro, though," said he, " that tho possl-
I blllty of such a coalition would be defeated
I should Mr. Low bo nominated hy the Citizens'
Union prior to tho Republican City Convention.
This whole matter depends on whether the Citl
tens' Union and the Republican party are of
one Intention. If they are, n cotlltion Is easy ot
accomplishment, if not, the comMnatlon might
as well net be attempted. Uitr organization In
i tends the defeat of tnmmau) Hall by the elec
tion of a Republican Mayor. Ir tbo Citizens'
Union is ot the same mind there ought to be no
difficult? of concerted action, for 1 do not be
lieve either sldo woald let personalities stand
In the way ot that achievement. If, on the
other hand, the one aim of the Union Is tons'
certain how many votes can bo secured for the
I principle that municipal administration 1b not
, involved In national politics or affected by It,
and they purpose to tntiko the success of the
ticket subordinate to that idea, I ran soo no uso
of even talking nboitt tbo possibility of union.
I think that the sure way to win is for the. Re
publicans and Citizens to Join forces, to reach
a common understanding as to tho policies to be
advocated and as to the candidate to be named.
That way being the suro way, it be comes tho duty
of everybody who has any relation to the subject
to work In good faith, considerately, and with
full regard to other people's embKrrassmcnts,
to bring about such a union. I think that anybody
who talks offensively of anybody else, who im
pugns unybo ly else's motives, who undertakes
to do any rough riding at all. Is nn enemy to
union and an enemy to good government. I
think that whun tho argument Is used that. If
the Citizens make a nomination without confer
ence with us. and in ndvanco of tho meeting of
our convention, we shall have to Indorse their
action when It Is said that the 'machine poli
ticians' 'won't daro' to do anything else It
makes ror war and not for peace."
Concerning tho claim of Secretary Clark that
the Citizens' Union has received more than
70,000 signatures to tho petition favoring Mr.
Low's candidacy a Republican leader said yes
terday: " Experience ought to teach these enthusiastic
gentlemen that no dependenco Is to bo plnccd
on petitions. I venturo to assort that more than
60 por cent, of the candidates who huvo been
nominated by petition under our new Ballot
law did not get us many votes as there were
names signed to their petitions. I know this to
have been the caso In u halt dozen Instances.
Yet tbo petitioners in such cases under the
sanctity of nn oath declare theirdesiro to have
the candldato nominated. Thev doubtless do
want him nominatol, usually, however, to se
cure the defeat of some othCr candidate. I bavo
Eo doubt that thero aro many signers of the
ow petition who aro actuated by a desire to
secure the dofeat of the Republican candidate.
Wo have only to go back to 1H05, when tho vari
ous anti-Tammany organizations claimed a vot
ing membership aggregating more than the
reclstorrd vote. That did not leave a voto for
tho Tammany ticket, yet that ticket was suc
cessful itt Ibe polls. It will Im) rememb-red that
that year the Oood Government clubs hail a
bona lido membership of 10,000 and claimed a
voting strength greatly In excess of thai. The
Ooo cloos ran a ticket and 1,600 voles were cast
for It. 1 am afraid that Mr. Low as nn Indepen
dent candldato would got an even emaller pro
portion of the 70,000 who aro alleged to have
petitioned for his nomination."

About seventy or eighty Twenty-second ward
Republicans In Brooklyn gathered In Acme Hall
In Seventh avenue and Ninth street last night
For several days It hod been announced that
the meeting was to bo of considerable
political Interest, and It was hinted that
LleuU-Oov. Timothy L. Woodruff, who Is
a resident of tho ward, might b called to
account tor his rocent utterance In disparage
ment of the Low boom. The affair, honevor,
degenerated Into a roaring farce, with William
Sutcllffe. tho occcntrlo Court street hatter, as
the chief actor,
Mr. Butcllffe has for aomo time been one of
a coterto of Republican politicians In Brook

year with promises to nominate him for soma

The Twenty-second ward statesmen caught
the all loo credulous Third ward hatter In their

last night, and then dancod around him llko so
many Indians tor ovi r nn hour.
I Mr. Butcllffe, who seemed to take the matter
seriously, was tho sole occupant ot the platform,
being quickly Installed as temporary and per
manent Chairman. No person would accept the
place of Secrotary, each one proposed for It de
clining on one pretext or another. Finally,
amid groat cheering, Mr. Sutcllffo was
nominated for Mayor ot tho Great

remarking that there was a time when he
would gladl have accepted a nomination for
Mayor of Brooklyn, so that he could be of ser
vlco to tho pcoplo. but that ho could not assume
such a responsibility In tbo changed condition.

SitEttlDAX, Wy., Aug. 12. Sheridan Is ex
cited over the discovery of tho historical cabin
and mine that havo been found In no less than
four States at Intervals during tho past quarter
ot a century, Tho discovery was made
this tlma by a shocp herder of the name
of Jones. Wilson T. Price of Shorldan, who
was searching for It, overheard Jones tell of his
find whllo Jones was on his way to Oasper, and
having a chart Price located tho lost cabin.
Price Immediately hurried to Sheridan, organ
ized a party, and returned for further Inspec
tion. The cabin Is mado of wholo trees placed on
end. No axe cuts are visible, and the trees
wcro apparently carrlod a long distance.
Around tho cabin Is a stono wall two feet high.
It stands on the right side of a deep cation,
next to a ledge of rock, which rises
high abovo It. The door is on the side
facing tho canon. Behind the door was
found five skeletons, nn old Colt's six
shooter, with tlve exploded chambers and one
loadod, an old pick and axo handle rotted off.
and remnants of a grip, bearing on a brass
pHto thenamoof W. Reynolds. The timbers of
the cabin were riddled with bullets. Evidences
of former mining operations were found. Tail
ings from an old dump wcro panned and showed
plenty ot colors.
Claims were staked, a company was organlf ed,
and development work will be pushed. The

Iter Attorney. Gsnrral Puranra the Mntaal
Lire, Federal Courts Kotnllhltandlnr.
The determination of the Superintendent of
Insurance and tho Attorney-General of Kansas
to defy tho authority of tho Federal JJpurU has
come to a focus. It"was told In yesterday's Suif
hov, the Superintendent ot Insurance of Kansas
bid refused to renew the permit of the Mutual
Lifo Insurance Company ot this city to do busi
ness in that Stato, because tho company had
refused to pay a supposedly fraudulent claim on
a Kansas man's policy. It was also told how
Judge Williams of tho United States Circuit
Court had Issuod an Injunction restraining the
Kansas Attorney-General and Superintendent
ot Insurance from Interfering with tho compa
ny's Dullness in that State.
Tbo Mutual Life has now received notice that
Attorney-General Iloylo has Instituted quo war
ranto proceedings in the Supreme Court of Kan
sas to compel the company to appear before tho
court In which tho proceedings wore instituted,
to show by what authority it is transacting busi
ness In tho Stato of KanBas. Any such action as
this on tbo part of tho Attorney-General Is for
bidden by thu Injunction.
Tho presumption now Is that Judge Williams
will can bo tho arrost and imprisonment of Attorney-General
Bolo for contempt of court,
Tho Knnsas statesman appears to anticipate
this, for it is reported hero that ho has directed
that, so soon as he shall have been arrested, an
application for a w rlt of baboas corpus shall bo
made to tho United States Supreme Court. This
programmo. It la said, meets with the approval
of Gov. Leody.
BUtj-nre Arrested on One Train for Remslng
to Pay Fares.
IUltimoiie, lid.. Aug. 12. Complaints have
been made frequently by Western Maryland
railroad officials that negroes were in the habit
of boarding trains and when well out of the
city terrorizing the train bands and refusing
to pay fares. Frequently pistols were drawn and
disorder prevailed. The police were appealed to
by the company, and this morn ing.when a crowd
of colored excursionists started to attend the
emancipation celebration at Frederick, a trap
was sot for tbo negroes. It was agreed that
the train, which was to carry a large crowd
of colored people, should stop on a high trestle
just beforo reaching tbo city limits. When it
did so tho conductor went through the train to
collect fares, accompanlod by Police Lieutenant
Kullem. As on previous occasions, many re
fused to pay and tieenroe disorderly. Threats
wero mado of violence toward tho train crew,
pistols wcro drawn, und the rioters were having
things nil tbrlr own way, when suddenly forty
policemen passed through from tho rear and
called on tho rioters to surrendi r.
Some at once gave In, but others made abreak
for liberty. When tboy found themselves on
tho trestlo thelrcourngefallol them. Sixty-live
of tho gang wero mantled into a box oar, but
just as the train nulled out the leader made a
Jump. Lieut. Kullrm seized him, and In the
struggln that followed lioth fell from the mov
ing train against tho end of the trestle. It was
u close shave for both. The prisoners were then
rutbedhick to tho city at onco and arrulgued
and sent to jail In default ot bill.

Half amllo from the finish a man who was a

TlAtlPAX. Aug. 12. At 7 o'clock this morning,
with the Stars and Stripes floating to the breeze,
with Capt, Taylor and a pilot on tho bridge, and
with all the officers and men on her deck, tho
United States battleship Indiana steamed slow
ly past the guns ot the citadel and crossed tho
outer sill ot the Halifax dry dock. This dry dock
was built primarily for tho accommodation of
British warships, and was constructed on the
strength ot liberal subsidies from tho British
and Canadian Governments and tho city ot Hal
ifax. The Indiana was placed In position almost In
record time. In eighteen minutes from the
time ths bow of the ship passed the entrance to
tho dock the great ship had passed safely lnstds I
and Into position, and a few minutes lator the
gate was dosed and forced Into Its final position.
About an hour lator, as soon as tho ship camo
to a standstill, detachments of sailors went to
work guylug the ship with blocks and stay
ropes, and for two hours the dook was a scene
ot great activity. Naval Constructor Bowles
directed tho work ot docking and fastening the
Indiana in position.
Thero was a pretty scene at 8 o'clock, when
tour buglers on the quarter deck called the ship's
company to attention as tho ensign was hoisted.
Every Jack tar and officer ot the Indiana stood
at salute, facing the flag, until "Old Glory" was
floating In thebreoze.
Tho weather and atmospherlo conditions this
morning wero very favorable for docking, and
the officers In charge had no difficulty in observ
ing the lines of tho ship. The docking was ac
complished without difficulty. The big ship rode
easily Into tho dock and was moorod In very
quick time. Considering that the Indiana Is tho
largest ship docked In this port, the manage
ment aro congratulating themselves on their
The water was pumped out slowly, so as to
facilitate the labors of the sailors In scraping
and washing the bottom of the Indiana. This
Sroccss began at 0 o'clock and was finished at
. As the water went down, the work of shor
ing the battleship was carefully done, and by 0
o'clock everything wu ready for the apnllca
tlon of the paint, for which fine weather Is
essential. The painting will begin to-morrow.
This afternoon, whllo the workmen and sailors
wero hardest at work. Admiral Ersklne strolled
down to the dry dock In plain clothes, and was
an Interested spectator ot what was going
on. He camo unofficially, and consequent
ly was not received with a salute.
Ills presenco was soon obsorved by
Cant. Taylor, who Invltod tho olflcor In
command of the British fleet on hoard tho great
American battleship. Mayor Stephen also called
on Capt. Taylor In the dry dock. A number of
British navy officers wont on board and thou
sands of persons visited the scene all day.
One accident marred the otherwise unquali
fied success of the docking. Autolno Johnson,
an Indiana sailor, was at work on a scaffolding
on the side of the battleship. His feet caught In
a rope and he was thrown down flftcon feet Into
the dock. Had be dropped Into the water little
harm would have been done, for several sailors
thus fell overtoard, but Johnson struck on a
float In the receding water and broke a leg, frac
tured three ribs, and Injured his head. He will
recover. The Indiana's surgeon was on hand
and Johnson was placed In tho ship's hospital.
Another Incident to-day was tho expulsion of
a local saloon keeper from tho bottloiblp and the
dry dock. This was done by a guard of marines
at the point of bayonets. Tho man had clandes
tinely taken a auantityof whiskey on board, and
was caught attempting to peddle it out to the
The Stw reporter asked Capt. Taylor If be had

Americans Will Probably Be Ordered Oat mt

Toronto, Aug. 12. Tho Dominion and Pro
vincial Governments of Canada are not inclined
to pass retaliatory legislation against the United
States, but they must have some regard for
public sentiment. It is believed that the On
tario Government has about decided that timber
license holders shall not In future employ In or
about tho cuttings of pine timber on the lands
of the Crown non-rosldent labor, or, In other
words, that laborers whose homes are outside of
Canada shall not bo employed by American or
Canadian lumbermen to work in the lumber
camps or In anil ubout the cuttings hauling or
handling timber on the lands of the Crown.
As many Americans and some Canadian lum
bermen havo hereloforo employed large num
bers of men from the other side, this now regu
lation. If brought Into force, will effect a con
siderable change from past conditions.
It Is understood that the question of placing
an export duty on logs will bo held over by the
Dominion Cabinet until the Premier returns.

an indefinite time.
Thus reassured, a man was sent ashoro In a
boat to secure assistance, and the distinguished
party made ready to mako tho best of an un

It was found that threo plates had been dis
