How the Situation In the House 1*
Affected by Mr. Laird's Demise.
The death of Congressman Laird leaves the
relative positions of the two parties in the
the House just what it was after the election.
The democrats were first to lose a man by
death?Gay of Louisiana. The death of Laird
takes off a republican. Out of this situation
the chances seem better for the republicans to
gain a vote. It is conceded that there is no
hope for the democrats to elect a man to suc
ceed Laird; whereas, on the other hand, the
district Mr. Gay's death left vacant is
probably naturally republican. It is gen
erally understood that Mr. Gay was en
abled to carry it because of his being
a protectionist and having plenty of money,
which he was free to spend. To hold this sarao
influence in operation Mr. Gay's son-in-law
has been nominated by the democrats, but
whether they can elect him is a question.
Miner, the republican nominee, is said to be
strong and all efforts possible will be made to
elect him. The republicans claim that all that
is necessary for them to carry the district is to
have a fair count of the votes.
Col. Halns Reports the Progress of
Operations on the "Flats-"
The monthly report of operations on the river
front improvement for July submitted to tho
chief of engineers by Lieut. CoL P. C. Hains
shows that the expenditures during the month
were *15,289.82. The work of constructing the
tidal reservoir outlet was continued. At the
close of the month the material had been ex
cavated from the last of the wing-wall coffer
dams and part of the concrete foundation for
the other down-stream wing wall had been put
in place. Dredging operations were continued
under contract with the California hydraulio
dredging and reclamation company. About
95,000 cubic yards of material was
excavated from the Washington channel and j
deposited on the lower end of section 3. Un-)
der contract with Henry Wilson about 4.000
cubic yards of material were dredged and placed
in the embankment. In execution of the pro
ject aimed at there has been dredged a channel
350 to 550 feet wide and 20 feet deep between
Georgetown and Giesboro point. This chan
nel has filled up to about 14 feet on the up
stream side of Long bridge. The Wash
ington chaunel has been dredged to a width
of 350 feet and 20 feet deep, but by the freshet
of Juno 2, 1889, this depth was decreased to
about 19 feet. All the material is being depos
ited on the flats, and up to the present time
about 620 acres have been reclaimed from the ;
overflow at ordinary high tide. Of the 12,000.
000 cubic yards required to till the flats up to
the required height there lias now been depos
ited on them about 7,713,000 cubic yards.
The Civil Service Commission to Take
In More of tho Departmental Service.
Before the President left the city Saturday
he had a conference with Civil Service Com
missioners Lyman and Thompson. It is under
stood that certain changes in tho rules were
submitted to the President for his considera
tion, and it is stated that an official announce
ment will soon be made. One of the import
ant changes proposed, it is said, is an amend
ment of the present rules so as to require an
examination before an appointment can be
made of chief of division in the departmental
service. Under the present rules chiefs of di
visions while in the classified service are ex
empted from examination and can be appointed
without being certified by the commissioner.^
If this change should be made it would
the civil service rules over nearlv the entire
governmental service and would be the last
extension of any importance that could be
made to the operation of the civil service law.
The following are the exceptions under the
present rules from examination in the classified
departmental service: One private secretary or
one confidential clerk of the head of each
classified department and of each assistant sec
retary. and also of each head of bureau
appointed by the President by and with the
advice and consent of the Senate; d rect custo
dians of money for whose fidelity another
officer is under official bond, but this exception
does not include any officer below the grade of
assistant cashier or assistant teller; disbursing
officers who give bond; persons employed
exclusively in the secret service of the govern
ment; chief clerks and chief of divisions.
A number of additional places are also spe
cifically excepted from examinations in the
various departments.
Difficulties Met by the Surveyors In
Going Over the Grouud.
The surveyors at work on the zoological park
grounds find they have about as troublesome a
bit of surveying to do as could well be imagined.
The irregularity of outline and curious lines of
holdings have given them much trouble, but
they are making a very accurate survey and ex- |
pect to be through in three or four weeks. Mr. J
Hornaday says that the more he goes over the ;
ground the better satisfied he is with it. He is
studying the lay of the ground and laying out the
park on paper, and as he divides it into sections
for the various animals he is delighted to see
how readily each species may be provided with
a home suited to its nature.
No advancement with the work, however,
can be made until the surveys are completed.
Another Governor and Commercial Body

The following letter was received at the
headquarters of tho board of promotion today:
Tebkitout or Idaho,

Boise City, Idaho, Aug. 14, 1889.
Mr. Alex. D. Asdeeso*.
Secretary National Board of Promotion,

Dear Sir: I have the honor to acknowledge

A New Test for the Charleston.
The new crit cruiser Charleston was given a
trial run in San Francisco bay Saturday after
noon. No government officials were aboard

There was no attempt to develop maximum
horse power or high rate of speed. It is un

Quay, a son of Hon. M. S. Quay, chairman of
the republican national committee. On their
arrival here the party were driven to the resi
dence of Qen. Mahone, and ou yesterday the
general and his visitor were cnlled upon by a
number of leading republicans of the Mahone
faction of this city, and matters concerning the
republican state convention, to be held iu Norfolk
on next Thursday, were discussed. Gen. Mahone
has been iu southwest Virginia for the past two
weeks or more, where he had conferences with
some of the most prominent lights of the party
w that section of the state. Mr. Quay's visit
here at this time is considered very sig
nificant, and it is more than probable
that the next few day* will bring other
prominent northern republicans here, who will
attend the state conveutiou at Norfolk.
Those wI10 are prominently spoken of as proba
ble candidates ou the republican ticket for
governor are Gen. Mahone, Hon. Geo. liowen
of Campbell county, Col. Joseph P. Minatree
of thin city, and ex-Mavor William I.amb of
Norfolk. Mr. Bowen has served two terms in
Congress, and is a prominent farmer in his sec
tion of the state. Col. Minatree is store keeper
of the ltichmond and Danville railroad, and
during the war was on Gen. Mahoue's staff,
wall the rank of colonel. He is a very popular
man, and it is said that the position he now
holds pays him a salary a* large as that of the
governor of the state, which is *5 000. Col.
Lamb is said to be a very affable geutleman,
and served with much gallantry in the eon
federate army, especially at the battle of Fort
Fisher. The general impression is that
and that one of the other named gentlemen
will be nominated in his place. The friends of
Gen. Mahone assert that his nomination would
create more enthusiasm in the state than that
of any other man who could be nominated, and
^t_ is certain that every effort will be made to
induce bim to accept the nomination. SlioulJ
Gen. Mahone accept, the political fight in Vir
ginia this fall would be one the like of which
has never been witnessed in the Old Dominion.
The democratic state ticket, headed by Capt.
Phil. McKinney of Farmville for governor, is
considered a very strong one, and the demo
crats are determined to lead it to victory.
Capt. McKinney is widely known and deserv
inglv popular throughout Virginia, and is a
good speaker, and in a few weeks his voice will
be heard from the stump iu advocacy of his
claims for governor and the success of the
democratic ticket.
Little Ones Dying Daily and Sickness
Greatly on the Increase.
Chicago. Aug. 19.?The Globe this morning
?ays: The suffering, starvation, sickness and
death among the miners' families in northern
Illinois is greater today than at any time in the
past. The large supplies sent through the
Chicago relief committee have been exhausted
and the people are face to face with hunger.
The little ones are dying dnily and Bickness is
greatly on the increase. It is no longer a
secret that the operators have decided to open
their mines with non-union men and have al
ready prepared to call upon the sheriff and
governor for armed officers and soldiers to hold
their locked-out miners in check. It is impos
sible to predict what the consequences in such
an event will be. Infuriated by hunger the
wretched miners will be in no temper to per
mit, except nnder the riilea of the militia,
others to take their places in the shaft*.

cisco says: For several years there has been
domiciled at tho Monterey county hospital an
old Indian known by tho name of
'"Old Gabriel," who is believed to
be over one hundred and fifty years of
age. Gabriel was born in Tullare county, but
during childhood removed to the town of
Monterey. Father Junipero Serra arrived in
Monterey in 1770, and it is well authenticated
that at that time Gabriel was a grandfather.
Father Junipero taught Gabriel the art of
cutting ?nd laying stone, and at the time of
| the building of the first chapel in the years
1771 and 1772 Gabriel assisted in the con
struction of the walls. Gabriel still
speaks proudly of the skill he acquired as a

th.tt time he had children several years older
than she then was. Up to within two or three
years Gabriel was a familiar figure on the
streets of Salinas city, bnt now ho
is rarely seen. He has always beon fond of

mother fainted and the utmost excitement and
horror prevailed as the balloons gradually rose
to a height of abont 200 feet And when the
breeze carried the balloons out over the lake
the babe was given up for lost. About this
time Gus Koch, an expert rifleman wl<o was
resent, rushed for his rifle and called for a
oat. The balloons still maintained their alti
tude and was fast sailing out over the lake. As
soon as the boat was near enough Koch com
menced firing at the balloons, and one after
another pierced them until the bunch com
menced to settle. Then the boat was rapidly
pulled to the spot, and when the balloons
descended the child was rescued before she
touched the water. Although terribly fright
ened the babe was uninjured.
