DISTRICT G <1V11R X ME \ T.
Improvements Requested.
Rev. H. T. Stevenson and J. E. Minnix
appeared before the Commissioners this
mcrnlng and urged an increase In the police
service for Anacostia, Hillsdale and Twin
ing City. Compared with other precincts,
they showed that the fifth precinct has
mere territory than the seventh, while
having but little more than one-quarter of
tho force. Thty also urged the importance
of improving the substation house in An
nccstia. The Commissioner suggested that
the gentlemen embody their suggestion in
a letter and present it to the Commission
ers for consideration.
Hay market Square.
Tho Commissioners this morning paid a
visit to the haymarket square and for
some time studied the situation with a
view of settling the matter with reference
to moving the farmers to that place. While
nothing was decided and the visit was
pi rely for personal Inspection, it is un
derstood that within a few days they will
Issue certain instructions to the major of
police, and the ground will be subdivided
and allotted.

or? ?!on day.
DIOCESE OF MARYLAND
Episcopal Convention and the Business of
Most Importance.
Will Discuss the Divixioa of the Dio
ecse?The Division of Funds an
* Important Question.
Tomorrow morning at 10 o'clock the
112th annual convention of the Protestant
Episcopal Church of the diocese of Mary
land will meet at the Church of the Epiph
any. In some respects it promises to be
the most important gathering of the
church in many years past. Ordinarily the
meetings last but a couple of day3, but
there are so many important matters of
business to come before the body this year
that it is doubtful if an adjournment
will be reached before* Friday afternoon.
Bishop Paret, who will preside over the
deliberations of the convention, will open
the meeting with an address, which will
take the place of a sermon, and which is
expected to deal particularly with the
questions that will come up before the
body.
A communion service will follow, and in
all probability the convention will not get
down to actual work much before after
noon. There will be sessions morning,
afternoon and evening. The diocesan con
vention alternates between Baltimore and
Washington, and when it meets here the
Church of the Epiphany is selected as the
meeting place as being particularly well
adapted for the purpose. Thire are a
number of smaller rooms in tire edifice, and
these make excellent accommodations for
committee meetings.
Regular llftsiness.
Under the rules there are only two mat
ters of busipess which are put down as
special orders. According to these the first
evening of the convention is always set
apart for the consideration of diocesan
missions, and noon of the second is the
hour for holding the election of the stand
ing committee. There is a regular order of
business to l?e followed, and as there is so
much on hand this year it is possible that
a motion will be made for a postponement
of the subject of diocesan missions until a
later, time.
The secretary of the convention. Rev.
Mr. Peragrine Wroth of Baltimore, will
read the list of clergymen entitled to seats
in the convention, and then the list of the
lay delegates. These will be referred to
two committees for a report of the oificial
membership of the body, and all contests
will be acted upon by the proper commit
tee and then settled by the convention. The
list of lay delegates is made up of the
names furnished to the secretary by the
registrars of the different parishes entitled
to representation. The only contest whick
is 2*pect3d to develop is in the case of the
lay delegate from St. Mark's Church of
this city, where some differences of opinion
have been engendered, resulting in the
election of two vestries, two registrars and
two delegates to the convention. The list
of delegates in the two orders as already
made up was published in The Star yester
day.
Divls ion of Diocese.
The matter that will occupy the attention
of the gathering for the most of the time
is the auestlon of the division of the dio
cese of Maryland, and the consequent
question of the division of the funds of the
diocese.
At the convention In Baltimore a year
aero a committee was appointed to report
this year on the provision that could be
made for the support of a new bishop, if
the diocese should be divided. This com
mittee consists of three clergy and three
laymen, as follows: Rev. Dr. McKim of the
Church of the Epiphany, Rev. Mr. Stuart
of Christ Church. Georgetown; Revj Mr.
Harding fcf St. Paul's, Mr. Henry E. Pel
lew. Mr. Lewis J. Davis and Mr. Seymour
Tulloch.
The report which they are able to make
will be most satisfactory to the friends
of division. They will say that they have
as a foundation of a fund for episcopal
support, in cash or in pledges. at>out
$54,000. This, with a half of the present
episcopal fund and a third of the accu
mulating fund, which is regarded here as
only an equitable division, would give up
wards of $75,000. They will probnbly re
port that they are able to offer $5,000 a
year to the new bishop, together with
$1 200 a year for the rental of an epis
copal residence. It Is thought that before
very lcnpr a permanent home for the bish
op would be built here, either in the city
or in the neighborhood of the site of the
Episcopal cathedral.
Division of Funds.
So important is the matter of an equit
able division of the funds of the diocese
that it will probably have to receive con
sideration before the question of a division
of the diocese itself can be profitably dis
cussed. It is admitted that a proper set
tlement of the first problem mlgfct affect
a good manv votes when it comes to taking
up the second. It will be no easy task to
make an equitable division of the funds
which are in prospect, and even if ?a dio
cese of Washington should be provided for
it might be some time before it received its
*hare of the money. There is now in bank
in New York the sum of >. which was
bequeathed to the diocese of Maryland, and
a further bequest of more than jaM.DiO
from the same family, which is being set
tled up now.
Unless Washington should be provided for
out of-this amount some of the parishes in
the lower Maryland counties might raise
an objection to leaving an older and richer
diocese for a comparatively poor one, feel
ing that their ministers, who now receive
assistance from the general diocesan funds,
w'ould not be so well off under the new ar
rangement. The difference, pnvhow, would
not be as great as they imagine, for there
has been some misunderstanding as to the
terms of the bequest, the Interest from only
a third of the latter sum going to the
dicesan fund, the remainder being devoted
to home and foreign mission work. No
serious difficulty Is anticipated In the set
tlement of these questions, and the general
impression in this city Is that, if they are
satisfactorily disposed of, a division of the
diocese will" follow without much oppesi
tion.
Sentimental Objection.
It is said that in the lower counties of
Maryland, which would belong to the dio
cese of Washington, there is something of
a sentiment against a division, as the peo
ple do not like the idea of leaving the dio
cese of "old Maryland," of which they
have been a part from the beginning. It is
a sentimental objection altogether, and is
offset by the fact that all the commercial
and social relations of this section are with
Washington rather than with Baltimore
Another reason for waiving this objection
lies in the fact that at the general con
vention of the church In Minneapolis next
October the plan of erecting Episcopal
provinces will be taken up, with a fair
chance of ultimate adoption. The idea of
a province is to combine about five diocese:;
with an upper house of bishops and a lower
house of delegates, with the view to sim
plifying the work and at the same time
extending the usefulness of the chuich.
If that plan is put into effect it will result
In the reunion of the church in Maryland
In one province, where now it is divided
into the dioceses of Maryland and Easton.
THE MILLER CASE.
It Was a Test One and Is Drop
ped.
As intimated In The Star some time ago
would be the case, Fred T. Miller, the
young horseman who was indicted last
winter for conducting T - okmaking at the
Benning race track last December, this
afternoon withdrew his plea of not guilty,
entered last Saturday, and pleaded guilty
to the indictment.
Upon the request of Miller's attorney, Mr.
Henry E. Davis, and with the consent of
District Attorney Birney, Juilge .Cole sus
pended sentence, admitting Miller to bail
upon his own recognizance.
Judge Cole, in suspending sentence, ex
plained to Miller that he did so because he
was informed that he had made a test of
the law against bookmaking at the request
of others and in perfect good faith, and
also because of his previous good charac
ter; but the court, as well as the district
attorney, wished it distinctly understood
that any future offender against the law
would be severely dealt with.
Decoration Day.
In accordance with the usual custom, the
offices of the District government will be
closed Decoration day.
THE VACANT OFFICE
Gossip as to the Probable Successor
to Mr. Gresham.
SE7BRAL GOOD NAMES SUGGESTED
Thirty Days Allowed the President
for a Choice.
TO CONSULT PARTY LEADERS
In the act approved February 6, 1801,
Congress changed the law effecting t.he
succession to such an office as is now
vacated by the death of Secretary Gresham
so as to read: "A vacancy occasioned by
death or resignation must not be temporar
ily filled (under the three preceding sec
tions) for a longer period than thirty days."
The old law had limited the duration of a
temporary appointment in such cases to
ten days, but the President may now desig
nate Mr. Uhl to act as Secretary of State
for thirty days at most. In fact, that is
just what President Harrison did after
Secretary Blaine's resignation, for Mr.
Wharton acted under his designation as
Secretary of State for the full legal period,
and "Secretary Foster was not appointed
until the last of the thirty days.
Speenlution as to a SnecesKor.
There was a great deal of speculation
today about the probable succesor of the
late Secretary of State Gresham. Those
people who are nearest to the administra
tion are very far from being able to sug
gest any name that will probably be select
ed by President Cleveland. There are half
a dozen candidates, but, so far as is known,
no one has even permitted his friends to
say a word in his favor so shortly after
the death of the Secretary.
It is not likely that any ambitious can
didate who would like to be Secretary of
State would permit his friends doing any
thing in his favor, at least until after the
funeral ceremonies have been performed
and the body of the late Secretary is in
terred. There have been several instances
in which efforts have been made to boom
candidates before the body of the office
holder was coM, and Mr. Cleveland has ex
pressed himself very forcibly on the im
propriety of such conduct. Mr. Cleveland's
views of such actions are known to be so
strongly against over eagerness to till a
dead man's shoes that it is generally be
lieved that it would tend to hurt the
chances of any man to start any cam
paign in his favor at this early day.
While Mr. Cleveland may have his own
idea as to who he wishes to be his Secre
tary of State, it is believed that he will
consult party leaders on this imi>ortant
subject in order to secure the greatest ad
vantage from a political standpoint, as
well as to secure some one well qualified for
the important diplomatic duties involved
in the office of Secretary of State.
AKftiatarit Secretary Ihl SujfgeMted.
There is considerable talk about the pro
n otion of Assistant Secretary of State Uhl
to fill Mr. Gresham's place. Mr. Uhl is a
n.an of polished manners, of diplomatic in
stinct and one who has taken most active
Interest in all the affairs of the govern
ment connected with the State Depart
ment since his occupancy of his present
office. If there were but a. few more
n onths for the administration to exercise
power there is little doubt that Mr. i'hl
would be promoted. The assistant secre
tary has hosts of friends and he is as pop
ular with members of the cabinet with
whom he has had intimate relations as he
is with all persons who have transacted
| brsiness before the State Department. Mr.
Uhl is a Michigan man and there is little
doubt that the congressional delegation
from his state would readily indorse his
promotion as a just recognition of service
and of the merit system as well as an
hciior which their state would appreciate,
l^ut it is not thought likely that Mr. Uhl
will secure this important position.
It is generally believed that in making
his selection Mr. Cleveland will keep in
view the giving of the appointment to a j
section of the country not now represented
in the cabinet. He will? also want to
stiengthen party unity.
Senator Grnj- Hamlieapped.
Senator Gray of Delaware has been men
tioned as a possible successful candidate
to be Secretary of State. There is no pos
sibility of such a choice, however. To be
sure, Mr. Gray has been one of the strong
est administration men in the -Senate, and
he is regarded by Mr. Cleveland as not on
ly one of his most earnest supporters, but
as a personal friend. Hut Mr. Gray's can
didacy is handicapped by the fact that
should he leave the United States Senate
his seat would be filled by a republican, of
the thirty meml.ers of the state senate of
Delaware nineteen are republicans. Even
were the administration willing to lose Mr^
Gray's support in the United States Senate
in qjxl^r to have him in the cabinet, it is
not at all probable that such a move would
be indorsed either by the democrats of
Delaware or other party leaders. While
Mr. Gray has taken an important part in
Senate debates on the Hawaiian and other
questions relating to foreign affairs of the
government, there are many who regard
him as v?ry far from being an ideal Secre
tary of State.
The old rumor that Mr. Carlisle may be
transferred to the State Department is
again revived, but it has no foundation in
fact. When Mr. Gresham was talked of as
the probable successor of Justice Jackson
of the Supreme Court this story gained
Considerable currency. But Mr. Carlisle's
old reputation is that of a financier rather
than a diplomat, and he would doubtless
regard any effort to transfer him to the
State Department as a condemnation of
his administration of the finances of the
country.
AinbuNsailor liny aril.
Ambassador Bayard, who served Mr.
Cleveland as Secretary of State in his first
administration, is regarded as a possibility
in the present emergency. It is argued
that Mr. Bayard's residence abroad fyas
made him most intimately acquainted with
all the questions now between this country
and Great Britain and has given him an
insight into present-day diplomacy that
few other available men possess. On the
other hand, it is argued that Mr. Bayard's
knowledge of disputes between the United
States and England may be quite as well
employed as ambassador at the court of.
St. James as it would be as Secretary of
State.
Ambassador Eustis, who Is regarded as
having positive ideas about a firm Ameri
can policy, is also named for the otlice.
Although a southerner, it is thought he
would please the north, but the fact of the
south having in Secretaries Hoke Smith,
Herbert and Postmaster General Wilson
three members in the cabinet, the idea of
a fourth member from that section is not
entertained.
Fear* of Tronhle With DiekiiiMon.
Mr. Don Dickinson is regarded as rather
too much at variance with the President's
ideas at the present time to be selected as
Secretary of State. He is a warm personal
friend of President Cleveland's and has
always exercised a great deal of influence
with the President. The President accept
ed Private Secretary Thurber to fill his
present office on the recommendation of
Mr. Dickinson, without the least personal
acquaintance with a man who was to per
form such confidential duties as private
secretary. But a good many people think
that If Mr. Dickinson, who got along with
the President well enough when he filled
the office of Postmaster General, were to
decide upon any given course, and if his
wishes were to be vetoed by the Presi
dent, there would be trouble in the official
family. Mr. Dickinson's utterances have
shown that he has entertained views at
variance-with some of the acts of the ad
ministration. and his entrance into the
cabinet is regarded as too likely to cause
friction to permit it to be realized.
F.x-Secretary Whitney.
The name of ex-Secretary of the Navy
Whitney Is also proposed in connection
with the vacancy Jn the State Department.
New York state having losFone representa
tive In the cabinet through the resigna
tion of Mr. Bisseli, it is thought that Mr.
Whitney's appointment would be very ap
propriate, ar.d if the President Is arabl
O. H. Douney, of Albion, Ind.,
an acknowledged expert in mat
ters relating to advertising, pro
nonncea The .Washington Even

dally papers Inthe United States
for advertisers' use, because?

paper on eiuth."
: -U' ?
tlous for a third term, and some of his fol
lowers have already pronounced them
selves in favor of his candidacy, Mr. Wnit
ney's aid would be of incalculable value.
Everyone knows how Mr. Whitney worked
for Mr. Cleveland's nomination in the last
national democratic convention, how he
made friends with the representatives of
Tammany democracy and acted as a con~
ciHator with them after it was seen that
Mr. Hill, under no circumstances, could
have the indorsement of that convention,
and it is said that this service has always
been kindly remembered by Mr. Cleveland.
But while speculation over the probable
selection of a successor to Mr. Gresham is
rife, the President will not hold any con
ference with his party friends on .that sub
ject until after the funeral of the dead
Secretary.
Representative Stone's proposition.
Representative Wm. A. Stone of Penn
sylvania has arrived in the city. Mr.
Stone's family have made their home here
since the adjournment of Congress, but
will now go to the Adirondacks to spend
the summer. Mr. Stone will return to his
home in Pennsylvania in order to take
charge of the business of his law firm, nis
partner having left the country for a vaca
tion abroad. ,
Speaking to a Star reporter of a probable
successor to the late Secretary Gresham
Mr. Stone gave a republican view on tnat
question. ,
"It seems to me," he said, that ? resi
dent Cleveland could not do better than
transfer Postmaster General Wilson to
the State Department and to appoint Mr.
Harrity of Pennsylvania Postmaster Gen
eral. The office of Secretary of isrtate is
not really a matter of much importance.
The Hawaiian question is about settled,
and if the Secrelary of State gets in any
trouble with a foreign government through
a mistake all he has to do is to apologize
and it is quickly settled. But Mr. VV ilson,
it seems to me, is better qualified for the
office than any man in the democratic
party. He undoubtedly is better informed
on historical politics in this country than
any other democrat. He has a wide know l
edge of diplomatic affairs, and is a studious
man. To be sure Mr. Cleveland may go
outside of his own party to find a Secre
tary of State, as ne did in the selection cf
Mr. Gresham.
Harrity for the Pout Office.
"With the office of Postmaster General
vacant, Mr. Harrity would be a good man
for Mr. Cleveland to honor. Pennsylvania
has not been recognized by Mr. Cleveland
in the make-up of his cabinet, yet that
state will have sixty-four votes in the con
vention that is to nominate a democratic
candidate for the presidency. Mr. Harrity
conducted Mr. Cleveland's last campaign,
and in all probability will take charge of
the next campaign. He is an able political
manager, and while he is not of the same
political faith as myself, I have a great
admiration lor his .fine fighting qualities.
Mr. Harrity wquld be well titted for the
Postmaster Generalship. It is true that in
that office there, is not much to do, as the
important places under the department
have all been filled by democrats."
Mr. Stone? does not think ihat the repub
licans of Pennsylvania are likely to be torn
by factions over the .silver question.
"Personally," he said, "I am in favor of
sound money. I, do not think it is necessary
for tho republican party to prescribe for
the patient-Hard Times before it is called
to attend to the sick man. Especially at
this time, so long "before the convention,
talk about the silver question will do no
good, and could, only result in stirr ing up
factions. The democratic party has gone
to pieces through such a course, and I
think it is wise for t,lie republican party to
stand by its welIrkhown principles, with
the assurance thnt wTien the time comes it
will be wetl qualified to enact legislation
that will counteract the effects of demo
cratic folly. ,
"We are not taKing much interest In
politics in Pennsylvania just now. Our
only contest soon to come off is over the
office of state treasurer, and the people are
not likely to get very much worked up
)ver that."
Mi ST HE EQUIPPED.
Street Hallway* Wvcn to Jane 1 to
Provide Fenders.
At a short and interesting meeting of the
board of Commissioners today it was de
cided to take summary action June 1 on
the fender question This was an unex
pected move on the part of the Commis
sioners, who had expressed no desire re
cently to make the railroad companies
come to terms and equip their several
roads with safety fenders. Secretary Tin
dall busied himself this morning to get out
the notices to the presidents of the several
railroad companies, and at 2 o'clock the
letter book was given an imprint of the
following:
"The Commissioners direct me to notify
you that instructions will be given the
attorney tor the District and the chief of
police to see that the regulation estab
lished by the Commissioners in relation to
fenders on your cars are complied with on
or before June 1 next."
Copies of the above letter were sent to
F. J. Newlands, president of the Hock
Creek railroad; George T. Dunlop, presi
dent of the Washington and Georgetown
Railroad Company; O. P. Crosby, president
of the Georgetown and Tenleytown Rail
road Company; W. K. Schoepf, vice presi
dent Eckington and Soldiers' Home Rail
road Company; R. F. Baker, president Co
lumbia Railway Company; H. S. Cum
mings,president Brightwood Railroad Com
pany.
In this connection the Commissioners
3ent a copy of the letter to Attorney
Thomas, calling attention to what had been
done..
A similar communication was also sent
to the chief of police informing him that
in inspector will be placed at his service
to indicate whether cars are properly
equipped with those safety appliances.

MR. WILSON'S TRIBUTE.
What tlio Postmaster General Says of
His Deail ?olleagne.
Postmaster General Wilson in speaking
of Secretary Gresham today said:
"To know Judge Gresham was to love
him as a man and to admire and respect
him as a public servant. When Mr. Blssell
was leaving this department he told me
that for all the worries and anxieties and
disagreeable experiences of his official life
he was richly compensated by having
made the acquaintance and enjoyed the
friendship of Judge Gresham. I share in
the warmth of that feeling. As a-man
the dead Secretary was plain, direct, cor
dial and high-toned. As Secretary of State
he was severely laborious and painstaking.
Through exceptional difficulties and em
barrassments he conducted our foreign af
fairs with great ability, to the honor of the
American name and the steady increase of
our standing and influence among the na
tions of the earth, for justice, wisdom and
self-respecting devotion to freedom. Few
lives have been more fruitful in high, un
selfish afid solid service to his country."
Mr. Herbert'* Tribute.
"Everybody knows of his ability and his
patriotism. He was one of the most lov
able men I ever knew. He was warm
hearted, generous, frank and impulsive.
He was so natural in his nanner that
every one could see that the kind things
he said and did came straight from his
heart, and that was the secret of his great
popularity.
"He was painstaking and conscientious
in the discharge of all his duties, loving
justice above all things, and the immense
labor he devoted to the work of his de
partment broke down his constitution, and
rro doubt shortened his days."
Doctors DisnBrrce.
There is considerable discussion of the
case of Mr. Gresham in medical circles.
This is due in part to the fact that Dr.
Krogstad, a homeopathic physician, was in
charge of the case up to May 4. Dr. John
son, who was then called in, was asked to
consult with Dr. Ivrogstad, but declined.
Dr. Johnson was then given'charge of the
case. In a bulletin given out last evening
Drs. Johnson and Prentiss stated that Mr.
Gresham's illness was acute pleurisy with
effusion, beginning May 1. Dr. Krogstad
questions whether pleurisy set in May 1,
at which time he was in attendance on Mr.
Gresham.
He said to a Star reporter today: "I was
called to see the Secretary at noon on
April 30, when he was found to suffer from
an acute attack of gastralga. complicated
with congestion of the liver and the pass
ing of a gall stone. For the following two
cr three days the gastric and intestinal
conditions were very troublesome, but were
improving satisfactorily, and on Friday,
May 3, were very much relieved. The liver
and a developing intercostal neuralgia
were very troublesome factors. At an
early call on Saturday morning, May 4, 1
discovered symptoms of threatened pleurisy
on the right side, which are always to be
looked for in such liver troubles as the
Secretary was found to be suffering from.
They were pointed out to the patient and
Mrs. Gresham, and treatment instituted
for their relief. My connection with the
case ended at this time, and I did not see
the Secretary again."
AT HIS BIRTHPLACE.
The Si:d \i-wn Taken to Mr. Greshnm's
Mother.
Special Dispatch, to The Evening Star.
LOUISVILLE, Ky., May 2S.?The news
that Secretary Gresham was dead was re
ceived with widespread and deep regret in
this city, where he was personally known
to many. It was even a keener shock to
the citizens of New Albany, just across the
river, where he lived for some vears, and
near which place he was born. Last even
ing a telegram was received in New Al
bany from Secretary Lamont by J. M.
Gwin, a life-long friend of Judge Gresham,
announcing the sad news of his condition,
and a messenger was dispatched at once to
Lanesville to notify Mrs. Sarah H. Rum
ley, the aged mother, that her son was dy
ing. She will *be left nearly alone in the
world. Of a large family, several of whom
attained distinction in war and politics,
only one or two survive to console her in
her extreme old age.
Several years of Judge Gresham's life
were passed in New Albany, and he was
very popular, visiting there every year, and
sometimes ol'tener. On "Secretary Gresh
am's visit to his mother near New Albany,
he slept in the plainly furnished room in
which ne was born. This house was a log
structure slightly modernized by weather
boarding, and is still occupied by his
mother.
NEW ALBANY. Ind., May 28.?"Walt is
dead. My poor boy is dead," was the ex
clamation of Mrs. Sarah Rumley, mother
of Walter Q. Gresham, when word was
convej'ed to her of her son's critical ill
ness. About 8 o'clock last night a telegram
was received in this city from the Secre
tary of War, Daniel Lamont, stating that
Secretary Gresham could Hot survive the
night and requesting that his mother be
notified. Mrs. Rumley lives at Lanesville,
Harrison county. The hamlet has no rail
road or telegraphic communication with
the outside world and volunteers were se
cured to convey the sad news to the aged
mother.
They reached the old liomostead about 10
o'clock, and were met by Mrs. Rumley, who
instantly understood the purpose of their
errand before they could speak or reassure
her. "Walt is dead. My poor boy is dead,"
moaned the mother, wringing her hands
and weeping bitterly in her intense agony
and grief.
The messengers informed her of the crit
ical illness of her son, and thus afforded
her slight comfort by conveying the infor
mation that her son was not yet dead. The
messengers returned to New Albany, and
upon receipt of news of the Secretary's
death another messenger was dispatched
to Lanesville. Mrs. Rumley will not re
ceive the news of her son's death until
this afternoon.
THE NEWS IX LONDON.
Papers Generally Refrain From Edi
torial Comment.
LONDON, May 2$.?'The news of the
death of Mr. Walter Q. Gresham, Secretary
of State of the T.TniLed Stages, was received
with every mark of sympathy at the United
States embassy and at the British foreign
office. The newspapers of this city today
print the news of Mr. Gresham's demise in
a prominent manner, but without editorial
comment.
The St. James Gazette, however, is an
exception to the rule. In its remarks on
the subject it says: "Mr. Gresham endeav
ored to preserve friendly relations with all
foreign countries, especially with England,
and his wise statesmanship upon more
than one occasion offended the spread
eagleism of Yankee politicians."
Many Americans called at the United
States embassy and at the United States
consulate today, leaving their cards with
expressions of sympathy with the family
of Mr. Gresham in their bereavement. The
flags on the United States embassy and the
United States consulate were half-masted,
and so were the flags on all the American
exchanges, as well as upon several other
buildings. Among those who called upon
the United States olficials today were
Messrs. Bourke Cockran and Joseph H.
Manley and Congressmen Apsky and Mc
Call of Massachusetts. The latter second
ed Mr. Gresham's nomination for the pres
idency in 1S88. The general opinion ex
pressed among American politicians here
is that Postmaster General Wm. L. Wilson
of West Virginia will succeed Mr. Gresham.
The Earl of Kimberly, secretary of state
for foreign affairs, has sent to President
Cleveland an expression of his very great
regret at the death of Mr. Gresham.
TRIBUTES OF RESPECT.
Resolutions Adopted by Western
State Legislatures.
NASHVILLE, Tenn., May 2S.-The Ten
nessee house of representatives today ad
journed until tomorrow morning out of
respect to the memory of Secretary Gres
ham. The resolution was simply worded,
referring to Mr. Gresham as "That dis-?
tlnguishei soldier and statesman."
SPRINGFIELD. IIL, May 28.?Both
houses of the legislature today unanimous
ly adopted resolutions deploring the death
of Secretary Gresham, adding that his life
has taught to the young manhood of
America the possibilities which lie in the
path of pluck, ambition, determination and
honesty, and that in his death the cause
of free government has lost one of its
ablest champions and the state of Illinois
one of its noblest citizens.

Money Said to Have Ileen Wronsrfnlly
Expended on Sprinkling County Roads
It is claimed that the appropriation for
the "repairs of county roads" has been di
verted. The matter will, withtn a few
days, be brought to the attention of the ac
counting officers of the treasury. It ap
pears that the superintendent of county
roads, acting under orders, has been pur
chasing supplies and sprinkling county
roads, although it is claimed there was no
appropriation to pay for the work. All the
paraphernalia necessary was purchased,
and all labor incident to the work paid for
out of the specific appropriation for the re
pair of county roads. Before last year the
Commissioners had a fund to do this work,
but the appropriation was struck out of the
bill that year, and it was found necessary
to use the appropriation referred to.
Last vear the Commissioners made an es
timate for $5,000 for doing this work, but
it was defeated, and once again the repairs
appropriation has been used to sprinkle the
county roads.
MaJ. Powell, when asked this afternoon if
he was cognizant of the above, stated that
he was familiar with the facts. Allotments
had been made from time to time, he said,
to sprinkle the roads, but he considered
that it was a proper expenditure and no di
version of the appropriation. Unless th^se
county roadu were sprinkled, they would
be damaged. The wind blew the loose dirt
from off the road bed, and in a very short
time the road bed was seriously affected.
THE FIRST CONVICTION.
Jadge Cole Upholds I lie Edmunds Aet
In the District.
The first conviction on a charge of adul
tery, under the Edmunds act, was secured"
by District Attorney Birney before Judge
Cole in Criminal Court No. 2 this morning.
The case was that of Delia, alias Cordelia
Cook and Frank Mackall, both colored.
Their counsel gave notice of a motion for
a new trial and In arrest of judgment, and
the defendants were remanded to jail to
await sentence.
In charging the jury, Judge Cole explain
ed the nature of the charge, which was
preferred under what is known as the Ed
munds or Utah act, which was primarily
enacted to prohibit the practice of *polyg
amy and similar offenses in Utah and in
the other territories of the United States.
Until recently, stated Judge Cole, the law
was not regarded as being in force and
effect here. But several months ago, in the
fase ol one Knight, charged with bigamy,
Judge Cole said that he liau decided that
the Edmunds act applies here, and subse
quently the Court of Appeals sustained
that decision. Therefore, remarked the
court, the court and jury were bound by
that decision.
"The claim that the parties were Intoxi
cated," said Judge Cole in conclusion, 'is
no excuse whatever. In fact, that makes
it all the worse."
The jury was out but a few minutes, and
upon its return returned a verdict of
guilty as indicted.' Mr. Carrington at once
gave notice of a motion for a new trial
and in arrest of judgment, explaining that
the case would be carried to the Court of
Appeals in the event of an overruling of
the motions. Sentence was therefore de
ferred until after those motions have
been passed upon. The penalty for the of
fense is imprisonment tor not more than
three years* ?
OFFICER CiHEE.VS REVOLVER.
Trial Hoard Recommends Dismissing;
ChnrKeM for Foster Shooting:,
All of the*testlmony taken by the police
trial board at the recent trial of Officer A.
W. Green for the careless use of his re
volver in the killing of Reuben Foster is
before Maj. Moore and will be submitted to
the Commissioners during the week. It was
learned today that the recommendation of
the trial board is that the charges be dis
missed, and all that is now needed is the
ollicial approval of the Commissioners, and
the case made famous by the citizens of
Anacostia will be ended.
It was stated today that a delegation of
colored ministers would appear before the
Commissioners before the findings of the
trial board a?e finally disposed of to urge
that Officer Green be dismissed, notwith
standing the recommendation of the trial
board.

FINANCE AND TRADE
Reaction in Values Throughout the
Stock List.
GRANGERS WERE THE ACTIVE FEATURE
Little News on Which to Base the
Decline.
GENERAL MARKET REPORTS
Special Dispatch to The Evening Star.
NEW YORK. May 28.?With a few un
important exceptions, the reactionists oper
ated successfully against values in all parts
of the active list this morning. London's
cable., reflected substantial fractional de
clines, and timid holders were easily per
suaded to pari with their holdings at prioes
fixed by tho professional room element.
Conservative operators were quietly ab
sorbing all offerings, but made no effort to
stay the decline. The action of today's
market is regarded as entirely natural, and
will probably prove beneficial in its ulti
mate results.
The grangers were the active features
of the regular list, as usual, and all were
depressed a full point from initial figures.
Manhattan yielded easily to moderate
selling, a loss of 2 1-2 per cent being re
corded during the first half of the sesison.
There was little news on which to base
the decline, the most potent influence
originating In the general desire to force
a lower level of values, in order to revive
a buying demand. In the industrial list
there ww a fair volume of business and
some irregularity.
Sugar was weak on continued selling of
small lots, presumably in the interest of
certain operators said to be desirous of
accumulating stock at lower prices. The
total absence of support noticed through
out the morning and the size of individual
sales gave considerable color to this view.
Leather wa3 active at a decline of more
than 2 per cent.part of which was restored
on an attempt to cover early sales. Gen
eral Electric advanced 1 per cent on pur
chases for both accounts.
The room is inclined to view this prop
erty in a somewhat more favorable light
a% the result of several pending develop
ments of an advantageous nature.
The contingencies on which certain of
these developments are dependent, however,
are such as to prompt caution in estab
lishing their market value.
The market for fore ign exchange was
slightly firmer in tone as the result of an
improved demand from remitte-s. The sup
ply of commercial bills is small, and tho
volume of business limited. As the result
of these conditions, rates are extreqiely
sensitive and liable to frequent changes.
The meeting of the anthracite sales
agents adjourned until 3 o'clock, without
having taken any important action on
either prices or tonnage for June. Some
conclusion cn these subjects is expected to
be reached during the day.
The trading of the last hour was confined
to the room, traders being disposed during
the first half of this period to work for a
rally. . , .
Fractional Improvement was noted in
nearly all of the more active Issues, but
therj was little disposition to regard the de
cline as complete.
The holiday on Thursday will probably
result in a narrow and professional market
tomorrow, which will aid the reactionists
in forcing further concessions, should such
a desire prevail. London will contribute
little to the volume of business between
now and Friday, which adds weight to the
conclusion that temporarily lower prices
are to be expected.
