Senator Caffrey Appears Before the

He began by eliciting from Mr. Bowler a
brief statement of his position, which that

the- belief that the law was unconstitu
Mr. Caffery then laid down the following
propositions as containing in brief . the
points that he would attempt to make:
1. That the judiciary power lodges by ex
press constitutional grant in the judicial
department, and that alone.
2. If any judicial function lodges In any
other department it must -be by express
c-rstitutional grant, and if it lodges in
the executive department at all it iust
be in its chief alone, and .not in his subor
3. Conceding for argument's sake that
the bounty law is not constitutional, it Is
rot so clearly so as to warrant the inter
pretation that it is unconstitutional even
fr.m a court, much less from a ministerial
officer. It is not prima facie unconstitu

of the law, the power lies in Congress to
appropriate money, especially where it is
appropriated for the purpose of 'reili-ih'g

pcints in an argument devoted .almost
exclusively to the constitutionality of the

ANTIMONY AND PLATINUM.
The For mer is Found, but the OtPut
of the Latter is Small.
The review of the mineral resources of
the United States, now being issued by the
geological survey, gives a short account
of antimony and platinum. It says that
antimonial ores have been found in a num
ber of the western states, chiefly in Ar
kansas, California, Idaho. Montana, Ne
vada and Utah. It is usually found in
the form of a sulphide, but also occurs
combined with Iron, topper and lead. The
product of the United States has risen
from sixty to's In 1382 to 250 tons in 1D04,
valued at $45,000O. Nearly the entire supply
is from California, and is smelted at San
Francisco. A lesser but considerable quan
tity came from Nevada. The imports were
small in 181)4, being talued at only $213,00,,
about two-thirds the usual amount.
The production of platinum is still insig-'
niticant. The results of the examination
of the black sands of the Oregon beaches
have proved a disappointment, theamount
of platinum being scarcely noticeable, al
though the sand contains $1.55 In gold per

of a driver on the Anaccatia line. Presi

changed his attitude toward the members
of the Railway Union, and now does not
dismiss a man without giving him ample
opportunity to present his side of the case.
One of the drivers of an Anacostia bob
tail car a few nights ago "loafed" on the
car following until be was running on the

passengers- in ?11, leaving none whatever
for the second man to haul. e
The driver, after hauling his load of pas
sengers as far as the.stables of the line in
Anacostia, and, although he should have
taken his car to the terminus of the line in
Hillsdale, to which point many of them
wanted to go, deliberately drove into the
stable and ordered the passengers to take
the next car. The driver of the latter, al
though his car would get no credit for
hauling the'load, cheerfully told the pas
sengers to get aboard, and he took those
who ranted to go there to the end of the

Instead- of summarily dismissing the
man, without giving him a hearing, Mr.
Griswold sent for him, and asked him in
the most kindly manner to make a full
htatement of the affair. The man did so,
and then President Griswold asked him if
he had ever known any of the other men
to adopt a similar course with his pas
sengers. The driver replied that he had,
and named three of his colleagues as those
whose course he had, he said, followed.
Mr. Griswold then sent for the three men
whose names had been given him, and they
were questioned at length. Each succeeded
in proving that the charge made by the
offending driver was unfounded in every

Subsequently the dismissed man made an
appeal to various members of the Protec

them to get the union to interest itself in
his behalf in. order to get reinstated in
the Anacostia Company's employ. But the
men replied, tphat the offense of which he

A recent act of President Phillips of the
Metropolitan Railway Company, which was
spoken of informally, though seemingly of

important questi)n of the employment of
union bricklayers is Involved.
At the meeting of the conference com
mittee of the two organizations it was
agreed, without dissension, that the brtek
layers should work upon the structure pend
ing the submission of the matter to the
Stonemasons' Union at their meeting to
night, when the whole subject will be ccn
s'dered and probably finally disposed of.
The question is of much importance to
the bricklayers, as favorable action of the
stonemasons will pravide employment for
fcrty or fifty bricklayers upon this struc
If, however, the stonemasons should re
fuse to waive the international law in the
interest of the bricklayers, the latter will
be called from the work and non-union men
will be substituted. There Is .a disposition
on the part of the stonemasons to decide
the matter liberally and fairly, and it is
quite probable that the action of the con
ference committee will be approved and
all trouble averted.

John W. Reed, alias Johnson, was ar
rested today in this city and sent to Balti

charging him with having obtained money
under false pretenses in Baltimore June 21
last, from Columbus J. Stewart The man
was turned over to George W. Seibold, au

Another requisition from Maryland, call
ing for Levi Poindexter, and charging him
with receiving property in Baltimore July

Dominick Rtickenbacher, a jeweler, located
on G street, in this city, was also received.
Poindexter has been confined in the D~is
tr-tct jail for several weeks awaiting trial
on a charge of larceny from Rickenbacher.
On the ground that the identity of the
prisoner had not been clearly established,
Jtidge Cole refused to grant an order of
removal. Witnesses were sent for, how
ever, and it is expected that Poindexter
will be Identified and taken to Baltimore
late this afterncon.
Tu Set Aside a Sale.
A restraining order from the court was
today asked by John A. Hughes to prevent
his eviction from a store at 1700 Massachu
setts avenue by Timothy Gannon, Edward
S. Wetcott, Walter R. Wilcox and Michael
Shea. The petitioner sets forth that he
tented the premises November 14, 1893,
agreeing to pay $50 per month therefor,
and, after establishing a thriving grocery
trade, he goes on to say, Gannon made a
pretended sale of the property to Michael
Shea. This, he claims, was done in order
to Oust him, so that Gannon might set up
a business at the number mentioned, and
Thereby reap the benefits earned by the
endeavors of himself (Hughes). The court
is requested to set aside the sale, if it was
improper, and until that is decided to grant
a termporary restraining order preventing
the defendants from entering into posses
sion of the property.
The Bleeding Patient.
Willingham, the butcher who has been
suffering at the Emergency Hospital for
three days with hemorrhage of the nose, is

a cessation of the bleeding. Yet the case

District Pupils in Maryland's School
for the Amieted.
The Secretary of the Interior received the
report today of F. D. Morrison, superin
tendent of the Maryland School. for the
Blind, at 220 East North avenue, Balti
more, in regard to the United States pupils
in that institution from the District of Co
lumbia. There are now in the Maryland
School for the Blind twenty-three District
pupils. Their expenses are paid by the
United States and the District out of what
is known as "the permanent indefinite fund.
which Is always available and does not de
pend on a regular yearly appropriation.
Thus these pupils escape the embarrass
ment that sometimes befalls many govern
ment beneficiaries and employes when the
appropriation necessary for their main
tenance or compensation fails of passage
The pupils now in the Baltimore school
are Eleanor Dougherty, Clinton Russell,
Thomas H. Maxwell. Susie .J. Duffy, Annie
Mundy, George Washington Jones, William
Somerville, Mabel Le Due, William Leary,
Ridgaway Arringdale, John Banks, M. Ade

Bride. Thomas Jackson, Theodora J. Hall,
Rodney A. Hawkins, Lora '. Carwile,
Mary V. Waters, Ida E. Crapster, Joseph
Doyle, jr., and James R. Ford.
Mr. Morrison says these pupils are prom
ising, and some possess more than average
ability. They are pursuing a regular dburse
of stuly, wh'ch commences with the kinder
garten for the younger childrenand includes
in the full course spelling, reading by touch
arithmetic, history, grammar, algebra,
geometry, natural philosophy, physiology,
music, instrumental and vocal, and har
mony; sewing (plain and machine),
crocheting, knitting (fancy and plain).
All do not show the same talent. If there
is no aptitude for music, that study is
dropped. The capabilities of each pupil
are studied and development on the lines
of special ability pursued.
One of the District pupils, James Trainer.
has completed the course in handicraft,
and is capable of earning his living either
as a piano tuner or a maker of mattresses.
The superintendent suggests that his term
in the school expire June 30, 1895. This
would leave twenty-two United States
The school has a new three-story building,

Speaking for Liquor.
John M. Kammeren of Cincinnati, na
tional orgarizer of the National Retail
Liquor Dealers' Association, spoke to a
large audience at Costello's Hall cn Wed
"The liqror dealers oppose the abuse,
not the use of liqucrs," Mr. Kammeron
said. "Guiteau, the assassin, abhorred the
use of liquor, but he put a revolver to bad
use. Why is there not a universal outcry
against the manufacture of firearms? If
a man makes a beast of himself in the'use
of liquor, why not punish him; instead of
attempting to deprive nine-tenths of the
sober, temperate people of their means of
Mr. Ka'nmeron argued that there are
215,000 liquor dealers in the United States
who pay each an average tax of $750 a
'Year. The manufacturers use millions of
bushels of corn, hops, malt, wheat, rye
and potatoes to make the liquor consumed.
Yet it often happened, he said, that the
farmer was a prohibitionist. Mr. Kam
meron was of the opinion that he had
never met a prohibitionist who was not a
far.atic, a knave cr a hypocrite.

GENERAL MARKET - REPORTS
Specil Dispatch to The Evening Star.
NEW YORK, August 9.-There was noth
ing doing in the London market this morn
ing in Americansand all orders to arbitrage
houses here would not have aggregated
1,000 shares. There were no indications in
the early trading that the local market
would be any improvement upon yesterday's.
Saon af14r the opening, however, an im
pression amounting almost to a conviction
prevailed that the -Messrs. Crossman, who
were to have shipped upward of a million
gold to Europe tomorrow, would not ship,
and two other smaller houses, who had ar
ranged for the shipment of $500,0110, also
said they would not ship. This encouraged
the room traders to play for a rally, and
their. efforts were fairly successful, in that
the whole Jyt was very strong and ad
vanced ma liy, on much freer trading
than for some days past. The threatened
"frost scare" failed to materialise, the
weather map, as well as prices for grain,
proving too much for It.
Manhattan was easily the feature of the
trading, both in strength and activity.
The buying was at first put down to cover
ing of shorts, but the continued strength
and character ot the buying in It started
rumors of a deal by which a new party
would gain control of the property.
The movement in sugar was confined to
rarrow limits, fluctuations-being controlled
by minor operators, in the absence of all
of the well-known manipulatcrs.
Erie securities were all weak, owing to
rumors that the new reorganization plan
contemplates an assessment of $8 per share
on the. preferred, and $12 per share on the
Telegraph resumed its place as an "ac
tive." and cut through 94 on the very best
kind of buying.
There is absolutely no change in the
sterling exchange from yesterday's prices.
Brokers quote tWe market extremely strong.
with no increase In the supply of bills.
Rates are firmly held except where gold
bills are offered. Actual rates for sterling
are: Cable transfers, 4im1-:1d 3-4; de
mand, 410 1-4a41801-2; sixty days, 4811-4a
The New York subtreasury's regular
daily reports of operations show as fol
lows for the week: Total receipts, $1fa,
e,tMO. including S400,000 currency from
other offices of the Treasury 1epartment,
and $1.000,0x0 for currency certificates Is
sued, showing that some banks are pressed
for room In which to store their funds.
Total payments, $id16T00,000, Including 31,
225,000 sent to other o36ces of the depart
ment. On the regulpr business of the
treasury at the clearing house the latter
has therefore mai a gain of about $100,000,
but this was swallowed up by the
loss of $2,6|0,000 by the export of gold.
This loss will also absorb all of the possible
gain of $1,000,000 this week by the regular .
movement of currency.
The stock market continued strong
throughout the afternoon, the rally giving
every indication of lasting through to
morrow. Advices from the growing crops
are of the most favorable character, and
these coupled with the curtailed gold ship
ments cause a much better feeing in the
street and on the floor of the stock ex
