Hia Comment# on the Published Inter
view With Corporal Tanner.
The attention of Gen. Busier, the assistant
?ecretarv of the interior, wan called today by a
Stab reporter to the statement in a published
interview with Corporal Tanner (printed else
wiiere), in which interview the corporal inti
mate* that tien. Bussev's decisions are written
by a member of the board of pension appeals.
Gen. Bussev remarked that it was hardly neces
sary to make such a statement, as any one
familiar with the business of a public office
would know that the bead of the office could
not do all the work himself.
*'Whilc it is true," he added, "that my deci
sions are written by others, yet they are pre
pared in accordance with my instructions and
after consultation with me. I could not pre
tend to do the work of writing out these deci
sions, but I can and do examine the cases, anil
npon the facts set forth and in accordance with
the law I reach a conclusion which is set forth
in the decision. As to Mr. Tanner not being
able to fiud my decision reversing his $4 order in
the pension office files. 1 have only to say that this
order formed a portion of an opinion in a case,
and as it was nut elaborated us fully as I de
sired, I withdrew it and substituted another
decision. whicfi set forth at length my views
relative to the order, and gave the reasons for
rescinding it. 1 made this decision in the
regular course of business, and not especially
because I wished to reverse any action of Mr,

their lists of selections of land opposite to such

by the land office. The company is unable i
to give title, and until the lands are declared
forfeited tho government can give no title.
Bills have been introduced in Congress to for

that this mutter is pending in Congress and,
therefore, no steps can be taken. 1 he attor

wish to change the policy of the land ofiioe in
this respect. This decision will causo tho set

Crew of the Fleet of New War Ships.
Rear Admiral Walker expects to sail with his
squadron of new ships from New York about
November L He will proceed first to Lisbon
and will then probably go to FayaL It is his
intention to keep the squadron together, in or
der that series of naval manoeuvers can be ac
complished. The admiral expects that the
trip across to Spain will take about two weeks.
He will run the squadron under both steam and
sail all the way over, and will keep the crews
drilling most of the time. He has filled the
bertns of the new squadron with some of the
very best talent in ttie navy, so that the show
ing to be rnudc by this, the first first-class naval
fleet that has ever sailed trom these shores,
will undoubtedly do much toward the elevation
of the foreign idea of American naval power
and seamanship. The squadron will probably
not remain very long in European wuteru. as it
is expected that the uew vessels will keep on

The Reduccd Water Pressure.
Considerable complaint is made in regard to
the reduced water pressure on the higher levels
of the city. The causo lies in the fact that in
making the connections for the new 48-inch
main at the reservoir it has been found neces
sary to draw the water from tho compartment
of the reservoir which lies nearest the city.
The supply now reaching the city comes
around the reservoir snd the usual head can
not be maintained. The reduction of pressure
will continue several weeks.

IT IS GETTING WARM.
j The Cronin Jury Plot Going all to
Chicago, Oct 17.?The arrest of Altlisder
Sullivan is expected hourly.
The Ainm to (1st aaya: Scarcity of cssh prob
ably prevented the "finding" of the Cronin
jury two week* ago. Bailiff Hank* *wore before
the grand Jury that the negotiation* with Gra
ham began in August Hank* mored slowly
because the money waa slow in coming. He
saw Graham after concerning the method of
procuring a juror. After plans had been
agreed on. Hanks wanted to know whst assur
ance he had that monty would be forthcoming,
and wai informed by Graham that a certain
"triangler" would furuish it. Hunks fiuslly
went to work, but was not successful. Grsham
became impatient and urged him to do some
thing. saying that not one of the eight men
chosen could be depended on by the defense.
A* an explanation why money was not more
plentiful. Graham told Hanks that "the fellow
at the Chicago opera house" waa having a hard
time to pay the lawyer*. In this connection
Graham said that Alexander Sullivan had
raised #8.000 for tho defense, but he hsd been
compelled to girs it all to Attorney Forrest,
who waa clamoring for money. Another big
sum of money waa coming in soon, Graham
?aid. and Hanks waa given to understand that
he could rely on getting some of it ?
This #8,000 that is claimcd to have gone to
Mr. Forrest is aaid to have been the cause of
the breach that has been apparent between
Mr. Foater, Beg^a' lawyer, and his aaaociatea
for aome time. Foater charged that Beggs was
being left out of consideration, nothing was
being done for him, aud his lawyer was not
getting Rny of the money raised by the "Tri
angles." He protested that Mr. Forrest
should not have all the money, aud in behalf
of Beggs demanded a portion of the #8.000.
Being left out in the cold. Mr. Foster has been
using hi* peremptory challenge*, which are
worth more than mouev now, lor Mr. Beggs'
sole aud exclusive benefit. Not a dollar was
paid the jury bribers; at any rate Hank* got
nothing except promiies."
Tom Kavauaugb. the jury briber, who is out
on bail, visited the office of Alexander Sullivan
aud waa closeted with that gentleman a con
"I have nothing to say." said Sullivan to a
Timet reporter last night! "save that Mr. Kava
naugh was at my office. Our firm has been for
a long time his legal adviaer. aud he waa to aeo
us on legal business. If there is anythiug aus
picious in that you have the fact. He certainly
was at our office this afternoon." Ou no other
phase of the case would Mr. Sullivan express
Sullivan was seated at his deak dictating a
letter to his private secretary when the officers
came for the latter. Sullivan and hu partner
visited Longcnecker's offiee and demanded to
see Htoltenberg during hi* retention last even
ing. but were refused admission. Detectives
shadow Kaesnaugh and Sullivan constantly.
A report was current yesterday afternoon
that the operator at the Grand Pacific hotel
had identified Stoltenbeig as the one who tiled
the telegram signed "J.G." to "J. Hough. Bar
rister, Winnipeg." instructing him to furnish
food to Bnrk and caution him against Collins.
It is unfortunate for Graham that his initials
are J.tt, and unfortunate for Stoltenberg that
he answers the description of the man wno
filed tho telegram.
The prolonged absence of J. 8. Trude. with
whom Graham nas been connected for ten
years, is the source of many rumors. His arreat
ia among the probabilities aud will create a
sensation. His brother, Geo. Trude. saya that
he is in South Dakota.
After Stoltenberg had been examined. Henry

Greater excitement prevails around the
court house than ever before since the Cronin
trial began. The first witness summoned be
fore the grand jury was Stoltenberg. He told
the story he gave State's Attorney
Longeneckcr last night and what caused
so great a sensation in the circles of
the prosecution When he came out
' he waa seen by a reporter and ask d if it
were true that he had gone betore the grand
jury willingly to tell all he knew.
1 "Not by a long shot." he replied.
'What did jou tell them about Alexander
"Cau't say a word about that. Can you tell
me where Mr. Windes is, 1 waut to aee'him at
once," and the vouug man rushed off.
It is evident that something big ia developing.
One of the assistant state's attorneys aaid this
morning: "Something tuighty important mar
occur before tonight and when it does happen
it will aston sh the p< ou<e of this city."
State's Attorney Lougenecker and Luther
Lafliu Mills were conspicuous by their absence
when the court in which the alleged Cronin
murderers are on trial was opened this morn
ing and Mr. Hyues represented the state.

has threatened that unless certain conditions
are complied with a full and coinpl. te state

small pox. Before the nature of the disease
became kuown over 200 people, including 60
school children, were exposed to it Yesterday
word came froiii Pelee that there are nearly
100 cases of the disease on the island. Inhabi
tants of the place who have not yet contracted
the disease are panic stricken. The Canadian
government has established quarantine against
the island, and all neighboring American porta
not now quarantined will be closed against it to
