At 2 o'clock Mr. Manderson concluded
ind Mr. Peffer (Kan.) took the floor.
While Mr. Peffer was advocating a bounty
for the sugar growers. Mr. Aldrlch Inter
rupted him to call attention to the fact that
the democrats In supporting the Gorman
Brlce bill were advocating protection In the
form of tariff for revenue, with Incidental
protection. The lepubllcan party, on the
other hand, called It protection pure and
simple. The popuilst party, now speaking
through tho Senator from Kxnsaa. also ad
vocated protection.
Thus Mr. Aldrlch declared party lines were
wiped out and the question presented was
almply how to revise the tariff In accord
ance with the views held by all parties, but
called by different names.

today, on motion of Mr. Catchlngs (Miss.),

Sensational Testimony in a Police
Alleged Practices in the City of]
New York.
NEW YORK, June 1.?The Lexow police
Investigating committee resumed work to
day. One of the matters scheduled for to
day'! session was the report that each po
liceman of the city had been assessed
to secure the passage of the bill Increasing
their salaries.
Policeman John E. Leonard of the twenty- S
eighth precinct was the first witness. He
said that when, on last election day. he or
dered a loafer named Kelly away from the
poling booth, which was situated at 66th
street and Third avenue, Kelly, who had a
political pull, had him transferred from the
sixteenth precinct to his present precinct.
Charles Prim, who came next, proved to
be an important witness, although he was
lcath to testify. He said he formerly i:ept
a disreputable house on Bayard street for
six years.
"How often were you raided?"
"Only once; about a year ago."
Counsel Nicoll objected, but was over
ruled. and then came out some startling
"When I first kept the house I paid 125
a month for protection to the wardman.
George Conners, now at headquarters. Cap
tain Cassldy was In charge of the precinct."
"Was the price raised?"
"les, to $50 under Captain Cross when
he took charge."
"Old you not pay a lump sum?"
"leg, after 1 was raided 1 paid $5U).
The witness said he paid K>o a month
to Captain McLaughlin, who succeeded
Captain Cross.
"1 also paid the new captain an initiation
fee of J500," said the witness coolly.
"When Captain Oevery came in, what
"1 paid S.VU Initiation fee."
"What was this wardsman's name?"
"His name was Glennan. He is now with
Captain Oevery in his present precinct."
Witness told how Captain Oevery, when
he came to the precinct, sent for htm. He
went to the station house in Kldrldge
street, saw Glennan, who said Captain Dev
ery meant business and he had belter pay
" 'I haven't got It," I told Glennan," said
the witness.
"What then?" asked Chairman Lexow.
" 'You can get it." he said, and I raised
the $500 and paid it." I
"What did he say about giving the money I
to the captain?"
"The wardman said that the money was
for the captain." ,
"When did you close-your house?"
"Last October. I g6t word to close my
doors as Parkhurst's agents were active.
Since then I have kept closed."
"What did the police say?"
" 'Keep quiet until after the senate police
Investigating committee get through and
then everything will be open full blast.' "
"How much in all did you pay?" the wit
ness was asked, and a pencil was furnished
him to figure up the total.
"Weil," sad the witness, putting down
the pencil, "1 find I paid $4,300."
'What! $4,300?" gasped the chairman.
"Yes, $4,300.". answered the witness.
This was the climax, end the gavel, in
the hands of Senator Lexow, pounding for
order, wis drowned in the exclamations
that broke from the lips of the several
hundred spectators.
When quiet had been. In a measure, re
stored. Counsel Goft asked him to furnish
the committee with the namej of other
keepers of disorderly houses who had paid
blackmail. The witness gave the names of
"Were you not afraid that you might
place your life in danger by appearing be
fore the committee?" he was asked. i
"Yes. I feared that the police might make !
it so hot I should have to leave the city."
Counsel Goff informed him that If any
one sought to intimidate him hereafter
that he would prosecute the person or per
sons free of charge.
Then the witness told how members of
Tammany clubs tried to levy assessments
on him. but he would not pay, as he was
cot a member.
Delancy Nicoll cross-examined the wit
ness and elicited the fact that he had serv
ed all through the civil war and was a G.
A. R. man.
"Did you pay Capt. Caasidy a cent?"
asked Nicoll.
"Not directly. I paid his ward man." i
Speaking of Inspector McLaughlin, who
was then a captain, he said he paid his
ward men in the John J. O'Brien Associa- |
tion Club house.
Corbett Xuati the Pise* of Hla Next |
NEW YORK. June 1.?Latest reports I
state that Jim Corbett has declined the |
ofTer of the National Sporting Club of Eng
land. and that the fight with Peter Jack
son will be held In America.
George Welty of New York has received
a telegram from Corbett to this effect, and
that he has decided to accept the $35,000
purse offered by the Jacksonville Athletic
Club of Florida.
Belief of Army Officer* Regsrdlsg the
Cripple Creek Revolt.
DENVER. Colo., June 1.?Army officers I
here believe that It will be necessary to call [
out United States troops to quell the Insur
rection at Cripple Creek. They believe the j
strikers cannot be dislodged from Bull Hill
by charging upon the mountain, but that It j
will be necessary to shell their stronghold. |
Mining attorneys in this city have advised
the mine owners to call upon President
Cleveland for regular troops, under the
statute giving the President power to pro
tect the people in their rights when the state
authorities refuse or fall to do so.
No Troth in the Last Gov. Walte Story
Gen. Schofleld, the commanding general
of the army, said today that there was not
a word of truth in the report from Cripple
Creek, Colo., of an Intention on the part of
the United States troops to arrest Gov.
Waite in case he took command of the
state militia and proceeded against the
deputy sheriffs on duty in connection with
the mine strike.
Unexpected Break In Wheat.
NEW YORK, June 1.?A quick and unex
pected break In wheat this morning put
prices down below any previous level reach
ed, July touching 57 6-16, against 57 9-16
the previous record. The decline resulted
from demoralized European and Argentine
markets, and better weather news from
the west.
Representative Simpson's Condition. ,
Congressman Jerry Simpson of Kansas, ac- I
companled by Mrs. Simpson, Representative
Lafe Pence of Colorado and Editor Dun
nlr.g of the National Watchman, arrived

hopes, through the healing properties of

expresses himself as doubtful of tha com- I
plete recovery of Mr. Simpson.

Knight N. Bunch, past grand chancellor.
Knight* of Pythias, and the editor of The
Pythian World of this city, has received an
encouraging letter from Knight Charles
McGregor of Fort Custer, Mont., which in
dicates how things are looking in that sec
tion of the country with reference to the
great and coming convention and encamp
ment. Ixj this letter Mr. McGregor says:
"The boys out in the 'wild and woolly west'
are wide awake. The excitement caused by
Indian outbreaks, riotous railroad strikers
uprising, cowboy encounters and stealing of
trains by the contingents of Coxey's army,
&c., all subside and soon become monoto
nous and disinteresting, but Pythianism and
Pythian Interests never die."

teen a tacit understanding that the local
r"ytnians should not cross swords with their
guests, not only for reasons of courtesy, but
because of the admirable drill which the
local men can set up. At the drill held In
Kansas City two years ago one of the
main prizes was captured by a Kansas City
divisiou. and although there wa3 no dissatis
faction expressed, yet it was thought to

Col. John M. Wilson, commissioner of
public buildings and grounds, although not
a member of the order, has taken an. In
terest In the coming meeting of the
Knights of Pythias in this city, and will
do what he can to make it a success. To
that end he has given instructions that the
emblems and Insignia of the order be repre
sented in flowers In the various parks of
the city. This will necessitate a changy In
the present plan of horticultural and arbor
cultural decoration of the parks, but will
entail very little additional expense, and
will undoubtedly be much appreciated by
the hosts and the guests in whose honor
the change is made.
Plants and bulbs are now being placed in
the varic us parks in accordance with this
idea, and the flowers will be in bloom, and
the leaves will have assumed the desired
hue to properly develop the Intended de
sign by the time fixed for the reunion.
These floral evidences of recognition will be
one of the pleasantest features of the occa
sion, and the local committee can be con
gratulated on securing the co-operation of
Col. \\ ilson in this matter.
RalslaK Funds.
The gentlemen who are canvassing the
city for subscriptions to help swell the en
campment fund reported today that they
had noticed a very remarkable awakening
of the merchants to this subject. They
were beginning to realize that the prom
ises of the executive committee in this mat
ter meant something, and were giving up
their funds accordingly. In the beginning
of the campaign they had experienced
great difficulty in getting money, but that
all they had to do now was to reach out
and take it. It was estimated that It would
require $40,000 to Insure the success of the
encampment. Of this sum. the citizens had
been expected to contribute $25,000, and
they had already put up $15,000, and the
canvass of the city was not complete.
No merchant need fe?l slighted that he has
not been visited yet, because the collectors
promise to get there in due time.
The balance of $10,000 remaining to be
pledged by the people It is expected will
soon be In hand, and then the preparations
will go forward with even a greater rush
than now. The difference between the $20,
000 and $40,000 had been pledged by the lo
cal Knights of Pythtas. This showed how
earnest they were in their desire for vic
tory. They were determined to make It the
gratesst event of Its kind in the history of
Pythianism and one of the biggest celebra
tions ever held In Washington. The Indica
tions pointed that way now. These are
only a few of the encouraging remarks
which can be heard around headquarters
every hour in the day.
There is to be a meeting, tonight of the
committee on horses and carriages. The
committee on camp and camp ground Is
hard at work, and will announce the result
of its labors at the next meeting of the ex
ecutive committee, to be held on Monday
Wants Ills Same Chanced.
Charles C. Schober. who was born here
August 24, 1873. today petitioned the Kqulty
Court for leave to change his name to
Charles C. Albert. The petitioner states
that his mother married John Albert Sep
tember 6, 1874, and that since Infancy he
has always been known and spoken of as
Charles C. Aloert. Hence, when his true
t.ame is written, it occasions confusion In
business transaction, and' Is a source of
great annoyance and Inconvenience.
Therefore he prays that the court pass an
order changing his name ttf that of Charles
C. Albert.
Biookland Cltlsens Want a Water
The Brookland Citizens' Association will
hold Its regular monthly meeting tonight,
when it is expected that the matter of se
curing the laying of a water main to that

District authorities, provided the right of

be secured.

Special Dispatch to The Evening Star.
New York, June 1.?Speculation in rail
way shares attracted little attention in to
day's market, owing to the Insignificant
character of the trading and the imma
terial changes in quotations. Opening fig
ures were fractionally below last night's
closing and moved about without definite
purpose within a radius of half a point.
London was dull, with Nashville 7-8 per
cent below our closing, and no other fea
ture. The published statement of this com
pany for the month of April shows a net
decrease of $42,102 and a total decrease for
the last ten months of $?28,512. In the local
? market the stock opened at a reduction of
1-2 per cent and sold down a similar
j amount to 43 5-8 on moderate trading. Bur
I lington gained 1-2 per cent on a small vol
| unre of business, and the rest of the list
j was steady at smaller gains. The floating
; supply of stock Is noticeably decreased
i after every reaction and is being steadily
i absorbed by investors as the transfer-books
of many of the larger corporations will at
| test. Add to this the overstocked condition
i of the money market and the reason for
j the timidity of the bears is no longer a
; mystery.
The bulls have drawn almost exclusively
' upon legislative changes In support of their
j position, and as the industrials are more
directly affected have neglected the rail
l reads for the present. Until earnings will
i Justify the movement, the expenses of a
j buil campaign in the regular list will be
divided about evenly between the shorts
and the originators of the scheme.
Washington advices were capable of a
variety of constructions this morning, re
sulting in a series of rallies and reactions.
Sugar came promptly to the front as a fa
vorite, and sold off 1 per cent to W 1-8;
later, on more encouraging news, the price
was marked up to 101 1-2. Buyers are never

Secretary Carlisle's Connection 'With the
Sugar Schedule.
Hla Visits to the Capitol u< Letter
Introducing Mr. Havemeyer
to Mr. Mills.
It Is stated on the best authority that
Piesident Cleveland and Secretary Carlisle
have been In entire and perfect harmony
in all their actions In regard to the tariff
bill. Secretary Carllsls's part in the prep
aration of the sugar schedule of that bill
Is officially stated as follows: Senator
Jones called upon and Informed him that
the subcommittee had agreed upon the
si'Kar schedule, and requested that he put
it In proper form.
This the Secretary did, the paragraph pre
pared being one of a few linos and provid
ing that after January X, 18V?5, the duty on
all sugars not above No. 1U, Dutch stand
ard, should pay 40 per cent. Senator Jones
was to have called at the department for
the schedule, but, being unable to do so,
Secretary Carlisle, in response to a requejt
of that Senator, visited the Capitol. Upon
arriving there he was informed that an
other change had been decided upon and
that sugars above No. 16 were to have a
duty of 45 per cent. Being requested to pre
pare another schedule to meet this change
the Secretary suggested the necessary al
teration could be readily made on the copy
already prepared, and. accordingly, the
amendment was interlined by the Secre
No provision had been made by the com
mittee for molasses, and upen Mr. Carlisle's
suggestion that commodity was add.-d as it
now stands on the bill. The committee then
decldcd that a provision should be Incor
porated, providing that the Hawaiian reci
procity treaty should not be affected by the
schedule The book containing the treaties
; nas obtained by Secretary Carlisle from the
rcom of the foreign committee, and he wrote
j the proviso which preserves the Hawaiian
. treaty. All this Is In the handwriting of
I Secretary Carlisle.
A Correction Made.
This event transpired on Saturday, May 5.
i That night It occurred to the Secretary
that the first paragraph of the schedule,
providing for the repeal of the bounty, fixed
the date of repeal for July 1, 18'.'4. while the
duty on sugar was not to be operative until
January 1, lSjfi. Knowing It to be the In
tention of the committee to Issue a print of
the amended bill on Monday, Secretary
Carlisle on Sunday morning took a coupe
and called at the house of Senator Jones
for the purpose of directing attention to
the discrepancy. If the bounty should be
repealed on July 1, 1804, and duty should
not be Imposed untfl six months thereafter,
there would be a period during which there
would be neither bounty nor duty.
Mr. Carlisle was satisfied that the dis
crepancy would be discovered after the bill
1 T/as printed, but he naturally desired to
1 *8 ve the committee from the criticism
; which would follow so palpable a blunder.
I Finding that Senator Jones had gone to
the Capitol the Secretary drove there and
I found Senators Voorhees, Jones, Vest and
, Harris and Representatives Breckinridge.
McMillan and other members of the ways
i and means committee engaged In going over
1 the bill. Secretary Carlisle' explained the
purpose of his visit, and the correction was
made. ?
That visit on Sunday morning. May 6,
was the only visit made by Mr. Carlisle to
the committee without an Invitation, and
the change alluded to Is the only original
suggestion he made In connection with the
formulation of the bill.
iBlrodnrlng Mr. Haveaeyer.
With refer?nce to the giving of a letter
to Mr. Havemeyer, Introducing that gentle
man to Senator Mills, that was a mere
matter of courtesy and routine. When Mr.
Havemeyer presented himself at the Treas
ury Department he was informed that he
?nould call upon those who were framing
the bill.
Mr. Havemeyer had slight acquaintance
with Mr. Mills, and, in order to save time
and Insure him a conference with the Sen
ator. Secretary Carlisle, at the request of
Mr. Havemeyer, gave him a note of Intro
duction. There was nothing Improper or
unusual In this. Similar letters had been
given by Mr. Carlisle to gentlemen who
called upon him in connection with the
tariff, some of whom were manufacturers
whom he personally knew, and who de
sired to secure changes in the rates fixed by
the committee.
The story* that Mr. Carlisle called on the
committee on his own motion and Insisted
that a certain schedule for sugar should be
adopted, for the reason that the sugar
trust had made liberal contributions to the
democratic fund. Is denied emphatically by
the Secretary.
Remalaa Fonnd of a Youi Gtrl Who
Had Beea Mining,
OMAHA, Neb., June 1.?The dead body of
a young gtrl was found In a rear room in
the second story of 806 South 10th street
last night. The deceased waa identified as
Maude Itubel, who has been missing from
her house, at South Omaha, since last Sat
urday night. An autopsy disclosed the fact
that death was caused by a clot of blood on

examining physicians, was caused by a
blow. An acquaintance named Brown is
under arrest, charged with her murder.

Special Dispatch to Tbe Evening Stsr.
BALTIMORE, Md., June 1.?The Protest
ant Episcopal convention held a long ces
sion this morning and transacted a large
amount of routine business.
An effort was made, upon motion of the
Rev. Dr. Elliott of Washington, to change
the rule which now requires a two-thirds
vote to elect a bishop, and word It so that
a majority vote In the convention could
Dr. Elliott said that In esse a bishop
should have to be elected In the new dio
cese of Washington and a two-thirds vote
were required, a deadlock might result and
trouble and misrepresentation ensue there
The convention, however, voted to retain
the two-thirds rule.
Many people appear to think that Bishop
Paret will elect to go to Washington, and
leave the present diocese of Maryland to
elect a new bishop. In that case Washing
ton would have a bishop without election.
The convention will adjourn sine die to
Secretary Greahnm Criticised.
In an Interview with Secretary Gresham
printed in a Baltimore paper this morning,
In which he Intimates that Americanized
Russian Hebrews will receive no aid from
the State Department In their claim of
privilege of returning to Russia, has nettled
Mr. Raynor of Maryland considerably. He
Is leading the movement for protection by
the United States of the Hebrews of the
claim of Americanized Russian Hebrews.
He does not hesitate to say that Secre
tary Gresham will make a mistake in as
suming this attitude, as there are two mil
lion Hebrews In the United State*, and
their influence Is powerful.
