JUSTICE OLIVER OUSTED.
Decision of the District Supreme Court.
THE PRESIDENT HAS THE POWER TO REMOVE JUS
TICES Of THK PEACE.
In the Court in General Term to-day the case ot
t&e United states agt. John N. Oliver was decided,
Chief Justice Bingham delivering the opinion of
the court sustaining the demurrer ol the Govern
ment and awarding a Judgment of ouster. This
was an information filed by tne district attorney
against the defendant, who, having been removed
from his office as Justice of the peace by the Pres
ident, refused to surrender to John Evans, ap
pointed In his place, claiming that under the law
he could only be removed by the court in General
Term, after due notice. &c. The chief Justice,
after quoting the legislation on the subject of Jus
tices of the peace from February 27,1801, states
ihat the power to remove such officers was In the
President down to the organic act of the court
(March, 1??), and this latter act does not give the
court the exclusive power, but gives It concurrent
power with the President. The power of the Presi
dent was not abridged, but it is enacted that the
court inn!/ remove, <fce. The demurrer was sus

Indiana Democrats for Cleveland.
WHAT CIVIL-SERVICE COMMISSIONER EDGERTON SAYS.
Clvll-servlce Commissioner Edgerton, who has
spent a good deal of time of late In Indiana, said
to a Star reporter In the course of a conversation
"Oh, yes, there's a good deal of speculation in
Indiana as to who will be our next President, and
some difference of opinion, even among democrats,
as to who ought to be. Some democrats who have
tailed to get office think President Cleveland ought
to be turned out, while democrats who have got
office, or expect to get office, think he ought to be
"Is the democratic opposition to the President
In the State diminishing?" inquired the reporter.
"Yes It Is," was the reply. "Many who were led off
by newspaper elamor have fallen Into line In sup
port of the President. Some of our democratic
papers have been very Injudicious,to say the least,
and needlessly aroused In some minds leellng
against the President. I am satisfied from my
own observation and from Intercourse with the
leading democrats that the great mass of the party
of Indiana indorses and supports the President,
and will give him their support for re-nomlnatlon
and re-election. Indiana Is somewhat Deeullarly
situated, or rather the democratic party's. It has
no distinctive leader. The party is divided Into
factions, each faction having Its leader, and
frequently the Interests or alms of those leaders
conlllct. Now, there will be a big contest over
Voorhees' seat In the Senate. Gov. Grey Is under
stood to be a candidate, and though It would seem
that Voorhees ought to be re-elected without op
position t here is no telling how It may end. Grey
could have been elected to the Senate to succeed
Harrison had It not been for the fact that his re
tirement from the office ot governor would have
let In a republican." ^
Harvey, the Forger.
HIS CCRI0U8 CAREER?WHO WILL LOSE THE MONET.
The question Is now being considered by the law
officers of the Treasury whether the Government
will have to stand the loss of money through Oscar
J. Harvey's forgeries or whether it can be put upon
the banks that honored the drafts and afterward
collected the money on them at the Treasury. It
has always been held that banks must make good
any forged paper passed by them upon the Gov
ernment, but the circumstances in this case are
different from those in any previous case. Where
the Government has redeemed counterfeit bonds
banks presenting them have had to refund the
money. The attempt will be made to make the
banks stand this loss. Additional forged drafts
that have been paid swell the amount to nearly
Dispatches from Wllkesbarre, Pa., Harvey's
home, state that he has had a romantic career,
and has not enjoyed a good reputation. At the
death of his father, it is stated, lie got $30,000 by
borrowing upon the strength of the supposition
that he was to have a share of his father's estate
of $200,000, when the fact was that he had already
squandered his share of the estate. It is stated
that he has always lead a life of extravagance.
He was but twenty years old when he graduated
with high honor Irw LaJUiyette College at fiaston*
Pa. Among his eh^sinates Was Wol ?. Smith, ex
Assistant secretary of the Treasury,andto whom he
la largely indebted for his tlrst appointment In the
Treasury Department. In 1875 he went abroad
for travel and study, and cut a great swell in
London and Paris. In 1872 he founded the
Harvey prize for English at Lafayette college, an
annual prize of $20 in gold to the student of the
Junior-class excelling In English studies of the
year, which Is still extant. He was admitted to
and Is still a member of the Luzern county Bar
Association, aud is also counsellor of the American
Institute ot Civics, of which Cldef Justice Walte,
ot the U. S. Supreme court, is president. He mar
ried several years ago a Miss Holden, who was con
sidered the most beautiful woman of this locality.
Their wedding entertainment was one oi the most
elegant that has ever occurred here. It Is stated
that he never paid his wedding expenses. Harvey
Is said to have been a republican, but voted for
Cleveland. His first application for a place in the
Treasury Department was indorsed by Whitelaw
Held, ex-Gov. Hoyt, Wayne McVeigh, Samuel J.
KHP'tit", W. E. Smith, and Robt. E. Monaghan.
An Incendiary Fire.
AN ATTEMPT TO BCRN STOTT'S DRUG STORE.
Saturday evening, about 7 o'clock, Are was dis
covered In stott's drug store, No. 480 Pennsylvania
avenue. Policeman Costello saw smoke issuing
from the third story of the building and turned In
an alarm from box No. 17. The tire department
responded promptly aud extinguished the dames,
thus preventing what might have been a serious
lire. The building was damaged to the amount of
about twenty-live dollars. The Are was evidently
the work of an Incendiary, and Is being Investi
gated by Detectives Home and Mahon. They say
that there were two llres started In the building.
On the third floor a lire had started in or near a
box of bark, where there was no combustible ma
terial, and burned about the bannisters. The
other lire occurred on the flrst floor, In the drug
store. This one started In a drawer where there
were bottles of liver tonic.
District Government Affairs.
THE NEW RULES
governing the conduct of the employes of the Dis
trict Government have caused much unfavorable
comment among the clerks at the municipal build
ing. While the District officers were located on
4)4 street some of them were accustomed to work
upon the "go as you please" plan, and, as Commis
sioner Wheatley says, many have seen flt to abuse
the privileges allowed them by their Indulgent
chiefs. A great cause of complaint was the chronic
Illness of some of the clerks, who found an ever
available excuse for their aDsence In the unsani
tary condition of the old quarters. The new rules
In this respect provide that In case of absence, due
to illness, the absentee must submit a statement
of the facts, accompanied by the endorsement of a
reputable physician, stating that It Incapacitates
him from aolng duty. Another matter which has
caused considerable annoyance to the Commis
sioners is the discussion of official matters In tne
newspapers by subordinate officials. This Is pro
hibited. A much needed rule Ls that which re
quires all employes to wear their coats and be
otherwise suitably attired while on duty; and
others prohibit the making or receiving of per
sonal visits, reading of books and newspapers,
smoking and unnecessary conversation during

TO THE NATIOEAL RIFLES AND OLD GtrAKD.
The Secretary of War this morning decided that

ARCHBISHOP CORRIGAN'S NOTICE TO THE CLERGY AND
The Catholic papers in New Y'ork print the fol
lowing, signed by Archbishop Corrigan:
"To the Very Reverend Clergy and Faithful
Laity of the Archdiocese of New York: Be it
known that on the 4th day of May, 1887, the sa
cred congregation of the propaganda admonished
Rev. Dr. Edward McGlynn, late rector of St.
Stephen's church, in this city, that he had already
rendered himself liable to ecclesiastical censure
by disobeying the positive command of the Sov
ereign pontiff, given January 17. Wishing, how
ever, to deal leniently with him, the sacred congra
gatlon refrained from inflicting censure, and. offer
ing him a further opportunity to be heard in his
own behalf, gave him a flnal and peremptory
order to present himself In Rome within forty
days from the receipt of the letter containing
sueh order, under pain of excommunication
Incurred ipse facto et nominatim.
1 his letter was duly delivered to Rev. Dr. McGlynn,
and, as he allowed the days of grac to pass un
heeded, it became our sad duty to notify him that
he had Incurred by his own act this penalty of ex
communication by name, whereby he is cut off
from the communion oi the Church, from Its sacra
ments and participation In Its prayers, and, should
he persevere In his contumacy, deprived of the
right alter death to Christian burial. It has be
come also our duty to declare to the clergy and
laity of our charge, whleii we do by these letters,
that Rev. Dr. Edward McGlynn Is excommunicated
nommatim, with ail the penalties attached to this
censure by the canons of the Church."
No formal announcement of the excommunica
tion was made yesterday in tne New York cathe
dral nor in any of the princlpai.Cathollc churches.
No Inst ructions were issued to pastors concerning
the matter, each pastor being left to exercise his
own Judgment in reading or not reading the arch
bishop's letter from his pulpit. The policy of
silence seems to have been tacitly agreed upon by
The anti-poverty meeting last night was the
largest yet held, many persons being drawn
tniiher, no doubt, In view of the recent excom
munication of Dr. McGlynn. The Academy of
Music was crammed, and the management found
it necessary to hire Irving Rail, directly opposite,
for an overflow meeting. This, tco, was soon
packed, and hundreds were turned away.
DR. JI'GLYNN SHOWS HIS TEETH.
Dr. McGlynn was received with uproarious ap
plause. In the course of his speech he said, after
referring to conscience as a guide: "If you want
to see true devotion to the Catholic Church, go
where it is in the minority and with little power
as in Ireland and Germany. I reassert that i
know a German-American bishop, an intimate
friend of Cardinal Gibbons, who said that the Ro
man authorities wanted to have a nuncio at the
court or King Grover the First." Here the doctor
stated that the reference to King Grover was only
^ "It is s dtyll and an Inconceivable one?
the Idea of having a nuncio at Washington?but
entirely m keeping with the doings of those
who conceived the idea of sending two
Italian prelates to catholic Ireland it
was with a thorough knowledge of the matter
I had in hand that I said an Italian nuncio would
be a source or corruption and slavery to the Cath
lie Church In Am&lca. 1 also said to un eminent
Catholic lawyer that, with my knowledge of
Rome, I thought It better to show one s teeth
than to eat humble pie when endeavoring to get
favors from it. As long as Catholic people con
tinue to let the pope do as he pleases in politics as
well as In religion, allowing cardinals u> be
elected to the assemblies, aud daring to forbid an
American priest from making any political
speeches or attending any political meeting in
future without the permission of the propaganda,
which thinks that Florida Is a suburb or New
Y'ork and Mobile a street In San Francisco?
so long as such Is allowed, so long will the
Irish, German aud American poor be sold
out for any price that Rome can get in re
turn. This circumstance is largely augmented by
the hope that at some early date the papal see will
recover Its temporal power,the power which Isdead
as Julius Cffisar. i o-day they are selling the unfor
tunate Irish, Germans and Poles in order to secure
the diplomatic aid or England. Bismarck and the
czar in the reacqulnuK or the temporal power of
the pope. The papacy is a machine, with nothing
but cupidity and lust for money anil power and It
is the knowledge of the condition or things that
has ruined all catholic countries and plunued
them into atheism. I admit that this is harxilv
the kind or sermon that I would have preached
from the pulpit or St. Stephen's. It would have
been my flrst and last or that kind. But they
have turned me out or St. Stephen's. The machine
has made a mistake this time. It has liberated
me." [Loud cheers.]

THE VIRGINIA BOAT CLCB CREW PROTEST AGAINST
GIVING IT CP.
A Richmond special to the Baltimore American
says: The Virginia Boat Club crew, or this city,
which was beaten by the Alexandria crew in the
recent four-oared gig race for the State champion
ship cup, has served a protest against giving the
cup to the Alexandrlas, on the ground that the
course was not such as the Alexandrlas guaran
teed it would be; that it was very rough instead
of smooth water. This protest will have to be
brought before the Virginia Association to be
acted on before the race can be decided in favor or
the Alexandria Club, who now claim It. in the
meantime the cup Is in the hands of the president
of the association, who took charge of It whjn the
Virginia Club, who had held It for two years, gave
it up. * o
Jeff DaviM Talk* Again.
ACCUSING GOVERNOR CURTIN OF ENDEAVORING TO
PROCURE HIS ASSASSINATION.
The account of the historian, J. Thos. Scharf's
recent Interviews with Jeff. Davis at Beauvolr has
been published. Davis makes a charge that the
United States Government endeavored to have
him assassinated during the war. He says:
"While the Confederate Government was at
Montgomery, in 1801, I received an anonymous
letter from Philadelphia, the substance of which
was that the governor of Pennsylvania had re
leased a noted desperado from the penitentiary on
condition that he would go to Montgomery and as
sassinate me, with the promise of a reward of
flOO.OOO if he succeeded. After release the map
stated that he could not probably succeed alone
and gave the name of another convict of character
like his own, with whose assistance he felt sure' of
success and that the second convict was released
to accompany the flrst."

his head, apparently from an unoccupied house.
The provost .guards next day found In the house a

Gen.- Lee conceived and executed the desperate
plan to turn the flank and rear of MccieUan*s
army, and that the failure to annihilate the Fed*
eral army was due chiefly to the fact that Gen.
Lee had no maps or the country below Richmond,
and that his army moved In ignorance ot the coun

themselves utterly inefficient.

1 An Exciting: Time in Colnuu
Chicago, July 11.?A special dispatch from Co
lusa, CaL, printed here says: At about 12:30
o'clock yesterday morning Hong 1)1, the Chinese
domestic who murdered Mrs. BUUou at St. John
some time ago, was taken from Jail and hanged by
a mob. The murderer had been on t rial for several
days, and a verdict of guilty was returned Satur
day, the Jury tixlng the punishment at Imprison
ment for life. Mrs. Bllllou, her two daughters,
and Wm. Weaver, head servant man, were sitting
at supper when the door of the dining-room was
thrown open by Hong Dl, the cook, who libelled a
Winchester rede at Weaver and shot him through
the shoulder. He fell on the tloor, and a second
shot went through Mrs. Bllllou's head, killing her
instantly. Both daughters fled to an adjoining
room and escaped uninjured. The Chinaman flea
and Weaver managed to get on his feet and locked
the door. No trace of the murderer could be seen
for nearly a week, when he was round on the bank
of the Sacramento river, nearly starved to death.
The circumstances of the assassination were still
\ fresh In the mind of every one, and on hearing the
verdict the crowd became exasperated.
A WILD SCENE IN COURT.
The Judge refused to accept the decision of the
Jury and a wild scene at once began. Almost
every man-present was armed, and In an Instant a
hundred pistols were drawn, amid cries of "lynch
him." The sheriff Jumped to his feet aud quieted
the crowd long enough to say that while he disap
proved of the verdict he hoped no blood would be
I shed In court. The crowd left the court-room and
the prisoner was removed to Jail. Soon an effort
was being made to lynch the Chinamen, and
while the sheriff and his charge were Inside a
large and determined mob was forming outside
the JalL All dity long the crowds kept on the
street, but no effort was made to get at the pris
oner until near midnight. At that time the town
was alive with strangers from surrounding places,

THE MYSTERY DISASTER.
The Fate off the Brooklyn chowder
Party?the Latent Particular*.
New York, July 11.?The disaster to the yacht
Mystery, upset off Barren Island last evening,
proves to be as serious as at hrst reported, The
number of lives lost will not be less than 25, and
Is likely to reach 27. The party was mainly from
the eastern district of Brooklyn and was known as
the Crescent Yacht club. It was a nominal or
ganization, simply for the purpose of a chowder
party or picnic and In the depth of grler and hor
ror that the accident has plunged Its members,
they are scarcely able to tell the particulars of the
make-up ol their own party. The number of In
vited guests, known only to the persons who ex
tended the Invitations and not to the others, makes
it Impossible even yet to give a list of the passen
gers of the ill-fated yacht.
THE NAMES OF THE LOST.
The best advices estimate the whole load at
thirty-seven and the number of those saved Is
, only ten. The following Is a list of the lost up to
the latest reports:
Lost?Michael Schwlnd, the blind accord eon play
er, residence unknown; Mrs. BrandelL Mrs. Louise
Obernolr.of 148 Varet street,Brooklyn,E.D.<her hus
band, John, was In one of the other boats); Frankie
Obernolr. seven years old; Lizzie Obernolr, Ave
years old; Charlie Obernolr, two years old; Mrs.
Weiss, of Bushwlch; Mrs. Fargo, the daughter of
Mrs. Weiss; a child of Mrs. Fargo; Annie Bader
, seventeen years old, of 71 Morrell street, Brooklyn,
E. D.; Philip Loin berg, Freddy Loin berg and a lit
tle girl of the same family; Geo. krlng, eight
years old, of Canarsle; Nicholas Scheldt, of l>e
Kalb avenue, near Bush wick avenue; Capt. David
Hendrlckson, of Canarsle; Henry Hendrlck&on,
nine years old, his son; two young men, whose
names are unknown to the survivors, supposed to
be Jas. Burgess and Marks Stark. There are
others missing and undoubtedly drowned, but as
some of tne people of the chowder party returned
to WHUauisburg last night their names could not
be ascertained at Canarsle.
STILL CLING I NO TO HOPE.
The survivors and the others of the club who
were on the other boats still cling to hope, and
soeak of the absent as missing, but the Canar
sle boatmen have no doubt that all are lost.
There Is no room for the belief that any rescues
were made beyond those accomplished by the
heroic wonc of the colored sailor Kobinson. They
were the women and cnlldren brought ashore by
the tug Edith Dean, Capt. Kohde.
The description of the accident and the circum
stances of the rescues are told alike by the crew
and passengers of the Dean, and those of the sloop
Christina, which was sailing almost In company
with the Mystery.
HOW THE SLOOP CAPSIZED.
The Mystery was rounding the point of the bar
Into the Yankee channel ana was well off, so as to
have a depth of fully forty feet of water under her
keeL The supposition that she may have taken
ground with her cenierboard is thus disposed of.
The captain of the Dean Is very positive on this
point, although the prevalent belief on shore on
Sunday night gave this as the cause of the mishap.
The accident was, therefore, the result entirely of
a puff of wind that struck the full-sailed yacht at
this critical point.
She had Just come about, and did not have
enough headway to come up of herself, and the
crowded condition ot her decks prevented the eas
ing of the jib sheets or the lowering of the head
sail In time to avert the disaster.

Party In Jamaica Bay.
A frightful disaster occurred yesterday to n
pleasure party off Barren Island, In Jamaica Bay,

having been drow ned. The Mystery started from
the excursion grounds at Unfile Bar, wit h thirty
seven persons aboard, chiefly w omen and children,
the men of the party having gone in ot her boats.
The tide was tearing out more rapid than a mill
race, and a land breeze that was almost a gale
gave a w hlte curl to the waves. The sloop had
started to come about, but the bigness of ber load
caused delay. Then a squall struck her. over

The Mystery w as In the channel when the squall
struck her, and the tug had to round Bam u la

the Mystery from the excursion grounds at KuflU

effort to go to her rescue. Her crew, seemingly
paralyzed with terror, had let down her sa l aud

ALLEGED REVENGE OF A WOMAN FOR THE W HimNS
OF I1ER CHILD.
A Chrlsfleld, Md., special to the Philadelphia
Pre**, Jul}' 10, says: Jonathan Farlow died yes
terday under circumstances that gave strong sus
picion of poisoning at the hands of his wife. Far*
low is about fifty years of age and was a widower
when he married tolly Pope about six weeks ago.
She is about eighteen and Is the mother of a child
of Qfteen mouths. Friday evening Farlow
severely whipped the child. She begged him to
desist, but he &ald he w ould whip It as long as
they lived toget her and If she did not like It she
might take the child and go. He afterward
threatened to kick her out or the bouse. Yester
day morning she called on Dr. F. I. Bennej and
asked him how much strychnine it would taxe to
kill a man and If 5 cents' worth would do. shortly
atterward she was In a drug store and asked for
strychnine. The druggist, not knowing the
woman, according to his custom In such case&
f ave her borax, which w as labeled "Poison.*
n another store she insisted ou strychnine and
obtained It. She says she mixed up the strych
nine and some qulnlue in separate giassses at the
I same time and poured the strychnine, as she
thought, into a rat hole In the stable, and that her
husband took the contents of the other glass.
Shortly after Farlow took It he was thrown Into
convulsions. The first thing be said was "do
away, you have poisoned me." He was dead la
less than an hour aud a half. Justice Homey bad
a talk with Mrs. Farlow, in which he told her that
she bad been suspected. She started to run
through the adjacent woods toward the river. A
number of boys and men started In pursuit, but
she could not be overtaken until after she had run
through the town. When caught she had nearly
reached the water. In which It is believed she in
tended to commit suicide. She was committed to
Jail to await a hearing. At the funeral of Farlow
