Mapkiii, Oct. 4. Sefior Sagasta lias succeeded
In" bis undertaking of forming a now Cabinet.
The Ministry Is now composed as follows:
S.-ftor Sagasta. Prosldont of tlie Council.
Senor Gullon. MInlstor of Foreign Affairs.
Sefior Moret, Minister of tho Colonies.
I Sefior Capdcpon, Minister of the Interior.
Sefior PulgcerTer, Minister of Finance.
f-cnorGroliard, Minister of Justlco.
C ount do Xlquono, Minister of Public Work.
(Jen. Corroa, Minister of War.
Admiral llerniejo, Minister of Marine.
Although tbe new Cabinet embraces respect
able talent. It is lew strong than It vv as expected
It would be. The sbsenco of such prominent
men as Vega do Armljo, Montero, RIos, Leon 7
Ca-tillo. and Canalojas is regretted.
Tbo publla Is evon moro disappointed that
Scfiora Goruazo and Maura were not includod.
It was hoped that tho former would bo Minister
of Finance, and tho latter, who w as tho author
of tbo first Cuban Homo Rule bill, Minister of
the Colonics.
. It is currently reported thnt the animosities
and Jealousies which are so conspicuous in
1 Epanlsb politics, thwarted Sefior Sagasta's ef-
s, foils, and that bo was compelled to omit statcs-
1 i ' ) " men from his Cabinet who declined to share
a efllce with others whom the Premier was
) pledged to appoint. All, howover, aro trusted
!? frieadt of Betior Sagatta,
; I. I Admiral Berxncjo declares that it Is his inten-
t tlon to develop the naval resources of the coun-
" try and to hasten the completion of warships
! that are now In courso of construction.
j ''" Sagasta's Cabinet la not so strong aa previous
5 i1 announcements had led many to bellere it would
I 5 to. In fact, Senor Moret is the only man In tho
new Cabinet who baa real political importance.
The exclusion of Sefior Qamazo and his friends
teems to Indicate that Senor Sagasta has not
succeeded In the difficult task of harmonizing
tho aspirations of tho Spanish protectionists.
' , represented by Qamazo, with those of tho free
i traders, whose champion la Senor Moret,
i ' 1 Senor Sagasta la 69 years old. Be was in the
f employ of tbs Stato as a civil engineer when he
entered pnbllo life, ami he soon climbed up to
1 the highest positions in the Administration. He
was only 43 years old when he was first ap
pointed Premier, a post which he held under
King Amadeo In 1871, and also un
der Gen. Serrano, chief of tho provisional
Government which followed the overthrow
of the Republican regime early In 1874. He
was at the head of the Cabinet when, at the
close of that year, Geo. Martinez Campos pro-
claimed Don Alfonso King of Spain, just at the
moment that Sagasta was trying to reach an un
derstanding with the Republican leaders toward
: the restabUthment of that regime. Sagasta
yielded to the Inevitable; but he once admitted'
In the Chamber of Deputies that he would hare
had Martinez Campos shot for proclaiming Don
I Alfonso, if ha had thro been able to get hold of
1 the General. Sagasta supported Don Alfonso,
m and now supports the regency, as ho supiorted
,'lf Don Amadeo and tho popular Institutions In
l 1874: always ready to support what may come
next, provided that ho la allowed .to take turns
, lnpower, for be is always willing to cacrlflco
; himself for the welfare of his country.
Has Sagasta been a good ruler I Spain un
questionably owes to him a great deal more
than she did to his colleague, Can ova del Cas
tillo, whom ail considered to bo br far the su
perior man of tbe two. Full of restrictions
though they are. it was under Sagasta that tba
laws establishing universal suffrage, the Jury,
and other developments of modern progress
were enacted. The SDsnlsh finances and credit
abroad recovered to a great extent as a result
of measures adopted by Minister Gamazrc under
Sagata's last administration.
Regarding colonial affairs Sagasta has been as
backward as Canovas. It Is true that it was
under him that Minister Maura introduced his
Mil of reform; but that measure was far from
really betas a liberal one, and Sagnsta consent
ed to Maura's defeat rather than surrender
r power.
" ,H He now proclaims the principle of colonial
dK.'JRs home rule, but bis definition of autonomy Bbows
BtSvAaV dearly enough that, as Mr. Ilannis Taylor, our
flKtjBT late Minister to Madrid, remarked a few days
3WP? "to. the Liberal leader Is no more progressive
Q In this respect than Canovas was.
I Sagasta's official declarations with reference
.Br, to autonomy are ambiguous enongb to Indicate
that be Is In tbe dark as to what should be done
in case it should be found that tbe establishment
Of home rule would bring hostilities to an end.
Don Pio Oullon 6 Igleslas, the new Minister
of Foreign Affaire, held tbe portfolio of the In

critical moment.

the Minister of the Colonies, Is. perhaps, the
nicst brilliant among tbe Spanish speakers of
the day. He boasts of democracy: but. although
he has been a Minister over a dozen time, be
ever did anything to Justify his assertion.
Tne law regarding slavery which bears his name
was merely tbe result of a compromise which
il jV. crippled a really liberal measure urged by Sefior
tttjEAe Labra and others- Moret is 69 years old. lie

lfo Farther Itrp to lie Taken I17 tbo Tresldont
Until tbe Cabluet Crisis Is Settled.
Wasiusqtox, Oct. 4. It was announced to
day that the Administration docs not propose
to make any further move In tho Cuban mUtor
until the incoming Spanish Ministry baa settled
down to business, and It may be delayed still
later If u general election is called to determine
tbo sentiment of tho monarchy. Meanwhile
tho President and the members of the
Cabinet are reading with Interest all
tho Madrid despatches in the newspapers.
Thoy are following every turn of the Spanish
political crisis as far as Is shown by the press.
Tho President and his advisers aro not so
anxious as they were concerning the outcome,
for the promise of the succession of a Liberal
Ministry has given them hope that even it Min
ister Woodford's overtures do not meet with
success, a policy of liberality will be adopted by
the new Government which will ultimately re
sult In Cuban Independence.
Gen. Woodford baa now everything in his
own hands, although ho will keep the Presi
dent and tho Secretary of Stato advised of what
is going on, and, like the Washington end of
the Administration, ho will have nothing to
worry him until the Cabinet situation at Madrid
has been straightened out and the Liberals have
fairly started the machinery of government
again.
No information of importance has been tele
graphed to Washington by Gen. Woodford since
he presented his noto to tho Duke of Tetuan, tbe
Minister of Foreign Affairs, two weeks ago.
His request to make public the text of tho noto
in order that Its friendly tone might servo to
quiet the rising bitterness of tho Spaniards
gainst the United States was not granted by the
President, and since his first rcfu il. which was
considered to bo conditional, Mr. McKlnley has
determined that the correspondence in the ne
gotiations between Spain and this country
about Cuba shall not be given to tbo press until
it haa been transmitted to Congress, unless
something unforeseen should occur to make its
publication a wise procedure.
Tba reference of the whole Cuban question to
Congress for settlement at the beginning of the
coming session is likely to bo the outcome
of a refusal of the Spanish Government to
recognlza the right of tbe United States
to come between Spain and her rebellions
colony in a dlplomatio way, and despatches
from Madrid indicate that the new Liberal Min
istry will resent any attempt at Interference
on our part. This solution of the matter was
mentioned to Tnx SUN reporter to-day by an
official of prominence, who strongly blnted that
it would be a result of the present negotiations.
Tbs President thinks that it would not bo
proper to print Minister Woodford's confiden
tial instructions, or bis note embodying their
substance, addressed to a friendly power, with
out first transmitting tbe document to the leg
islative branch of the Government, With ref
erence to the President's refusal, the prominent
official referred to saiJ :
"Everybody, I think, knows the substance of
Gen. Woodford's representation to tbe Spanish
Government. Tbey were of tbe friendliest char
acter and contained nothing that resembled a
threat. But naturally he made plain the desire
of the President for a speedy answer, and. how
ever dlplomatio tbe terms used, the meaning of
this cannot be mistaken. Il would not be
proper, therefore, to make public either instruc
tions or note at this time, and neither will in all
probablllt) be given to tbe press until they have
been transmitted to Congress."

Thrown Out of Tkelr Boat at Serin Long
Branch hy nn Aeeldoat to tho Baddor,
Lono Bmxcn, N. J., Oct, 4. By tbe capsizing
of a pound fishing boat this morning off North
Long Branch four fishermen were drowned.
Three others In tbe boat escaped. Henry Smith,
the Captain, and John S. Enna and Andrew
Anderson were saved. The lost were George
Robblns, North Long Branch, 20 years old ; Joe
Hertz, 30 years old; Antonio Uenrlcksen, 28
years old; Adolpb Persons, '29 years, all natives
of Sweden. The upset occurred shortly after 0
o'clock: within 200 yards from land. C.ipt,
Smith's rudder broke Just a? his boat wascaught
In tbo undertow, A determined effort was
made to right tho boat, but tbe sea was running
so high that It could not bo done,
Capt. Walter Hennessey and crow of six men
put to sea at 5:30 o'clock. They reached tbe
"offsboro pound " after a rough trip, and had
one-third of the pocket towed when their at
tention was attracted toward the shore by tbe
firing of a gun. A few mlnutos before Capt.
Hennessey had seen Capt. Smith and his six
seamen pulling for the Inshore pound with
overy prospect of reaching it with safety.
"Wj can't do much. boy. In th s sea," said
Capt. Hennessey, but get together and do all
we can to save Smith and bis crew."
Tho firing of the gun and the launch from the
beach of a skiff by two men showed Capt, Hen
nessey that tbe occupants of the Smith boat
were in peril. Before reaching the spot where
the boat was capsized two oars and a pall were
Sicked up by Capt. Hennessey's men. In tbe
lstunre two men wero seen struggling. They
were well nigh exhausted when taken aboard
Hennessey' boat. Capt, Smith, although
dressed with "oilers" and bin boots, succeeded
In buffeting the waves until ho was about to
strike bottom. Then ho wus rescued by Capt.
Hennessey and his crew, Capt. Smith when
asked bow tbe accident occurred said:
"Wo got In the undertow and wero upset. 1
did the best I could toward righting tho boat,
but everything wai ugainst mo."
None of the bodies of the missing fishermen
has yet been recovered.

Cl.KVIILANn, O., Oct. 4. John J. Shlphcrd, who
for many years has stood among tho highest of
Cleveland's buslnoss men, a business nssoctato
of Senator M. A, Hanna and a man vtho
on bis own boast has handled $50,000,000
within tbo last fourteen yoars, was arrested
here to-day by a constable on a charge of em
bezzling money Intrusted to his care. Coinci
dent with the arrest of Shlphcrd was tho placing
of tho affairs of tbo stock brokerage firm of
Charlos II. Potter & Co. of 104 Superior street
iu tbe hands of a rcciivcr.
This brokerage firm stood foremost In Clove
land as regards the volumo of business of tho
class It bandied. Tho receiver, Alexander S.
Taj lor, took Immediate possession. Tho np
p lntiuent was raado by Judgo Ong nt the
Court of Common Pleas upon affidavits
and statements presented to him In tho
caso of Frank do Hass Rob'son against tho

Savings and Loan Association, National Bank
nf Piitiimftrpr tTntnn Kattnnal Hank. Euclid
Avenuo National Bank, nnd William 0. Stable,
which was Bled late on Saturday evening.
At that time- a petition was Died asking for a
temporary restraining ordor against theetrcet
railway company on tho grounds that tho com
pany was insolvent, that aomo of Us 0 Ulcers u cro
charged with embezzling funds of the company,
that the stock had been watered for the benefit
of certain creditors, and that dhldcnds had
been paid one set of stockholders In preference
to another set. The temporary rcstratnlngordcr
has practically tied up tho company over since
from doing any business except that of operat
ing Its lines.
The first thing this morning tho othor clausa
in the petition, tbnt a rocelvor bo appointed for
John J. Shlpherd, was heard and granted,
Alexander 6. Taylor, a real estate man, being
named as tho receiver. His bond was fixed at
$25,000, with tho Fidelity and Deposit Company
ss surety,
Tbe warrant on which Shlphcrd was arrested
charges him with emberzlement of tho funds of
the Cleveland City Railway Company and tho
Fort Wnyno Street Railway Comnany, amount
ing In value to about 91,230,000, the property
of F, De lines Roblron.
The specific charges are fraudulently convert
ing to bis own use S1B3.296.15 worth of per
sonal property belonging to P.oblson in addi
tion to 112 91.000 0 per cent, first mortgago
bonds ot tho Fort Wayne Consolidated road,
valued at 995,000.
In the suit against Potter & Co. Roblson al
leges that the defendants are hopelessly in
solvent; that they owe twenty banks and as
many Individuals more than $2,000,000 bor
rowed money. He therefore prayed for a Judg
ment of 9991.7U1.15 and tho appointment of a
receiver.
Shlphcrd took his arrest bard. He shook
and trembled and declared himself a ruined
man. In the Justice Court, before Justice Bau
der, he said:
" Well, it's true that I on e Mr. Roblson roonoy.
I owo a thousand others, and I have not got a
cant. I bars made and lost threo fortuuos,
and now, I suppose. Mr. Roblson think
b hss n ndo It impossible for me to ever
make any more money. The transactions
which led to my arrast have extended over sov
eral years, and owing to tho magnitude of tbo
dealing and the amounts Involved, I am at pres

I owe Mr. Roblson.
"1 recelvod money from Mr. Roblson In tho

Intention to embezzle. Everything turned
against me; stocks shrunk, and the valuo of my

Mr. Sire gasped nnd looked at the oRlulal in

Miner In the Ilntleton District Try to Blow
Up n Uoue.
Hazletox, Pa Oct. 4. An attempt was made
last night to blow up the houscof William Kulp,
a night watchman at tho Hollywood breaker,
with dynamite Kulp was a deputy sborlff dur
ing the lato troubles. Tbn perpetrators are two
miners, William Grant Wltchle of this city and
William Thrash of MUnesvllle. Only the fact
that tha Icnited dvnamlto cartridges did not
coino noar enough to tho houso whore they wero
thrown saved tbo building from total demoli
tion. As It was, only a deep hole was torn In the
ground and tho bouso watt shaken.
The men were caught In tbe act by Kulp and
rocognized by him. He went to Hazlcton this
morning and procured w arrants for them from
Justice Laubauih. Thov wero arrested this
afternoon nnd arraigned this evening. Tbey
acknowledged having set off the cartridges In
front of Kulp'a house, but said they did it only
for fun and to scare Kulp. Wltchle was held lu
91,000 ball and Thrash lu 9500. In default ot
ball they were locked up. The few trooDS that
remained in Hazleton wero withdrawn to-day,
and It is feared that attempts will be made upon
tbe lives ot other deputies.

Around Pobln.
Tacojia, Oct. 4. Advices from China glvo
further particulars of tbe great Inundation.
Sixty Chinese towns in tho district about Pckln
were flooded early In September, driving out
80,000 pcoule, of whom over 10,000 aro esti
mated to hae boen drowned. Tbe authorities
in Pekln are directing tho rollef measures, and
the people from tbo towns nearcit the capital
have been permitted to llvo within the city
walls. Hero they have no covering against tbs
rain, wblcb is still falling, and great efforts aro
nccossary to provide them with food. Many
citizens of Pekln have Joined tbo authorities in
this work. Tbo estates of many Pekln nobles,
as well as all tho crops In tho flooded district,
were destroyed.
Tne rains which caused tbe floods commenced
late in July and continued until late in August,
Tho Tungcbou, Tientsin, and other rivers rose
ury rapidly. Somo of them overflowed nnd
wiped out villages along the banks almost be
fore tho people knew thero was any danger.
Tbo magistrates and people In tbo flooded dis
tricts spent several days praying for dry '
weather. Later the officials at Tientsin posted 1
a proclamation forbidding the slaughter of tattlo
and sheep In the hope ot appeasing the wrath of
the gods and stopping tbo rain. Foreign Con-
tuls protested against tbe meat supply being
thus cut off, asserting that It was a violation of
treaty rights.

Somo signs fall, but tlinso which woro vlslblo
In the Tammany firmament last nlcht all
pointed ton chaugo lu Iho Wignntu leadership,
and tboy further Indicated that tha rbango
might romo to-day,
Mr. Sbcchan Is road J- to abdicate, for the place
lias bciumo so uncotnfortnblo as to bo almost In
tolerable. It was asserted yestorday that
Mr. Shcchnn scut a noto to Mr. Crokcr
announcing his purpose ot retiring from tho
ostensible leadership. Tbo reply to this was a
request that Mr. Sbcchnn would wait auhllo
until tho situation could bo discussed tbor
oughly. This was agreed to, and It wub decided
that tho Exccutlvo Committee should bo
oalled together this afternoon; that Mr.
Crolcer should be Invited to attend, and
thnt at that meeting tho troubles of tha
organization Bhould be thoroughly ventilated,
tho grievances and protosts of district loaders
bo heard, Mr. Crokor to detcrmlno after hear
ing everything what shall be done. Mr. Crokcr
consented to the arrangement and said last
nlgbt that ho will attend tbe meeting this after
noon. This will be tha first meeting of tbe Ex
ecutive Committee ho bss attended In years.
He bas always kept woll lnformod regarding
what was going on In that committee, and.
through his friends In It, bas directed its action.
The outcomo ot tbe mooting, It Is confidently
belloved, will be an effort on tbo part ot Mr.
Crokor to push through tbo slate for tho Tam
many county ticket which bo has decided shall
be nominated. Those who know Mr. Crokor's
determined character say that if ho has set his
heart on doing tbat that he will accomplish it.
There may bo an explosion and Mr. 8beehan
may formally retire, but that will mako no dif
ference, they say, nnd Mr. Crokor will have his
own way, even if he has to resume the actlvo
Jo dersbip ot tbe organization for tbe campaign.
Thl, It was declared. Is not likely to happen.
inr 11 is unncrsiooa tnai jonn r. uarrou is reaay
to take Mr. Sbcehan'a place as Mr. Croker's
agent as soon as n change Is required.
Tbe whole troublo has grown out of Mr.
Crokor's dictation. He dictated the nomination
of tbe city ticket ugalnst tbe protests of Jobn C.
Sboeban and other members of tbe Executive
Committee. Although thoy recognized tbo
weakness of tbo candidates chosen Van
Wyck, Coler and Ruppert they deferred to
Mr. Croker s Judgment in tbe matter, hoping
that tho Tammany county ticket would havo
somo material on it that would warm up
the rank and lllo and dispel tbo frost which
tho Van Wyck-Coler ticket had brought.
Mr. Phcchan nnd his friends wero to bo disap
pointed in this. Mr. Croker's slate for tbo
county ticket was even worse than his city
ticket. Tbey had urged tho cholco of new and
popular men, Mr. Croker bad insisted on nomi
nating men as a reward for personal favors,
through personal friendship, or at tborequost
of the sporting element. All of them aro old
h ick politicians, men who have hold place time
nnd again. There was nothing in the ticket to
attract anything but curves, and these were
showered upon it from ery qunrtor. Those
who have had business at Tammany Hal) or hud
to do with Tammany district leaders the past
week will certify that most of tho Tninmany
politicians arc past masters in the art of cursing.
A murky pall encircled the heads of John C.
Sheeban, James J. Martin, and tho other Tam
many leaders at the Wigwam yesterday after
noon. Some of it was tonacco smoke, but most
of it was cuas words. This was at the tirao
when Mr. Croker' ultimatum as to tho slate
was rocelred. This Is the slato:
For DUtrlct Attorney Thorn F. Orady, Mr.
Croker's man.
For Sheriff rjuricr Keenaa, Davo Oldoon's man,,.
fatCatut'. .(k Jamr P. Statue, Mr. Crckera

not. Ferdinand Lvj.
For Freildeat or Manhattan Doroufb Augustas
W. Feisr Lawrence Dtlmoor'a man.
There was talk about iho last straw and th
broken-backed camel when this ultimatum was
received, and II was then that Mr. Shcehan sig
nified his Intention of rotlrtng, and wrote the
note before referred to.
Tbo candidates who were left off tbe slate
were In a panic, and tbey began to bustle to get
their friends on tbe Executive Committee to
standout against Croker at the meeting to be
held to-day. Mr. Croker had had a caucus ot
his frionds in tbo committee, bowover, and it
was said yesterday ho Is suro of his ability
to carry his point. Ho sent for Col. William II
Brown last night and had along talk with him
at the Murrny Hill Hotel. Thomas F. Grady
was with Mr. Croker at his hotol most of the
evening anil Seemed to bn perfectly satisfied
with the situation. John F. Carroll, City Court
Justice Van Wyck's political sponsor, was also
there. Mr. Croker himself was In a particularly
happy mood, as If ho wero greatly pleased with
the prospect ot again assuming active control of
the political machinery of the wigwam organi
zation. The Tammany city ticket is in tho Held to stay,
despite suggestions to tbe contrary. Workmen
were engnged yesterday in building tbo big
transparency In trout nf Tninmany Hall on
with h will bo displayed Justice Van Wyck's
mine for Mayor. Candidate Van Wyck Is sat
isfied tbat bo will be elected and said to friends
yesterday that he anticipates a plurality of nt
least 75.000 votes In the Grentor New York. He
dined at tho Hoffman House lust evening with
John F. Carroll. Later, with ex-Mac or Hugh J.
((rant, ex-Llcut.-Gov. William F Shcchnn. and
I x-bheriff Sexlon, the 1 andldate nnd Mr. Carroll
went to Delmonlco's to talk over tba subject of
headquarters nnd campaign work. It was said
last night that Mr. Van Wyck's headquarters
mac be established nt tha Hoffman House. Al
fred J, Johnson of tho Tblrty-third Assembly
district will bo In charge.
.Mr. Sbeehnn and oth rs of the Tammany load

Henry Georgo movement. Mr, Cioker, though.
Is not frlghtonod In tho least by It. and still be
lli cos that tho organization will march to the

There have been man defections from Tarn
