torian Prince under the name of Mattewan;
to amend section 4131 of the Revised Stat
utes. so as to require that all officers of
vessels having Ameriean register shall be
citizens of the United States. The latter
bill Is to go into effect January 1, IJr.
Mr. Payne (N. Y.), chairman of merchant
marine and fisheries, explained that since
1&t, when the steamers New York: and
Paris were given American register, the
Treasury Department construed the act of
144 to permit the employment of aliens
as oflicers, and that the engineers and as
sistants on both those vessels were aliens.
As these and other vessels could be used
by the government in case of war as cruis
ers of the naval reserve it was Important
that all of their ofnfiers should owe al
legiance to the Inited States. The bill also
extended the time of engineer licenses to
fire years.
Tonnage Duties.
Another bill called up by Mr. Payne oc
casioned some dhate. but was finally,
passed. It provided for the repeal of exist
Ing laws exempting from tonnage duties
vessels from countries which extended like
exemptions to our vessels, and also proilded
for the rediuction of tonnage for vessels ply
ing between the Americas or the outlying
islands and the U'nited] States from three to
two cents per ton. The law for reciprocal
exempCon, Mr. Payne said, was passed In
the hpe that' all maritime nations would
join In the repeal of such duties. But only
Glermiany and the Netherlands joined the
arrangement. As a result of the arrange
ment since 1MS German vessel owners had
been saved 3-0).091 in tonnage tax and the
Netherland owners $100,0. while American
owners had saved but a few thousand.
The consideration of the election case was
then resumed.
Fr the Contestee.
Mr. Dinsmore (Ark.) closed for the con
testee. Mr. Robbins.with a glowing appeal to
members to 'divest themselves of partisan
feeling And to vote as their convictions dic
tated. The whole case of the majority, he
said, rested In the assumption that all the
negroes in the south were republicans-a
paoposition he most emphatically denied.

LATE NEWS BY WIRE
Another Fruitless Balot Taken at
Frankfort, Ky.
DM AP RUSED TO BE SWORN II
Trouble Was Looked for and Did
Not Occur.
SENATORS -WERE EXCITED
Special Dispatch to The Evening Star.
FRANKFORT, Ky., March 13.-The situ
ation this morning seemed weally more seri
ous than at any time sir ce the joint sea
sions hav-! been held. While everything
was quiet up to the hcur of 10 o'clock, when
both houses assembled, there was apparent
a spirit among the leaders on both sides to
carry out their most extreme measures. It
was the purpose yesterday of the republi
cans to elect a Senator, but seeing that
they would be overpowered by the extra
force of police sworn in to assist Jack
Chinn and associates, they submitted and
broke the quorum.
Today thby changed their plans. The
sheriff of Franklin county having been ap
pealed to, promises to see that no outsider
remained on the floor of tne hous. during
the joint session, and also that those hav
ing a right to the floor should not be
molested. This promise of Sheriff Arm
strong was made to Gov. Bradley this
morning on condition that the governor
would not call out the militia.
Sher!ff Armstrong and twelve deputies
were given charge of the lobbies and corri
dors of the Cap!tol. There was also a
sprinkling of bluecoats in the crowd.
Yesterday both the deposed senators.
Jaifies and Walton, entered the honse side,
where the joInt session Is held, long before
the hour of taking the hallot. but today Dr.
Walton remained outside, intending to enter
with the other senators for the joint session.
It was decided that if an attempt were made
to stop him the pres'ling officer and the
doorkeeper should inform the sheriff that
Senator Walton had a right on the floor.
Then, if the sheriff refused to admit him.
the militia would be calledl out.
There were few who knew the plans of
the republicans. It was felt that if they
were carried out there would be a clash of
arms t.etween the militia on one side, the
poice, sheriff's posse and thugs on the
other.
Excitement was intense and many timid
members were afraid to attend the sessions
of the house.
Just before the senate adjourned for the
joint session, Mr. Bronston. offered a rego
lution censuring the governor for ordering
the sheriff to clear the cloak rooms. The
resorition was lost ty 19 to 15. the sound
rnney democrats voting with the republi
cans.
Dr. Walton was allowed to pass into the
jcO*nt assembly unmolested.
Dunlap refused again to qualify this
morring, and the republicans will make
no attempf to force an election, as they
cannct command a quorum without Dun
lIp's vote.
The republicans refused to vote and the
quorum was broken. The forty-ninth bal
lot resulted: Blackburn, 50; Carlisle, 13;
Buckrer, 1.
THE SCENE IN THE SENATE.
Anwry Denuneintton of Gov. Bradley
Indulged In.
FRANKFORT, Ky., March 1..-Shortly
after 11 o'clock Sheriff Armstrong made his
appearance with eight deputies in the cor
ridor between the two house chambers.
Senator Blackburn. with a few of his
friends, including Jim Williams, Jjck
Chinn and others, came over to the senate
cloak room about 11:3 o'clock. Col. Chinn
approached Col. Lew Tarleton and said he
understood Tarleton had been talking about
him as one of a crowd of tuffians. Col.
Tarleton said that he had not said any
thing of the kind, but lie did say, as a citi
zen of the country, "I think the civil au
thorities should be on hand here to sup
press an outbreak of any kind."
At 11:3) a.m. Sheriff Armstrong received
instructions from Governor Bradley to clear
the senate cloak room, in which were Sena
tor Blackburn and his friends, including
Jack Chinn and others,. As soon as the sen
ate majority heard of this move of the gov
ernor the leaders of Senator Blackbrlra grew
hot and at once drew up a resolution of re
buke to the governor, which was adopted.
It caused the wildest confusion.
The reading of this resolution caused a
sensation. Petrie, republican, said that it
was extraordinary, and he asked that a
committee be appointed to confer with the
governor and see if such an order had been
issued by him.
Senator Bronston grew fiery and bitterly
scored the governor. He called for the adop
tion of the resolution.
Senator Goebel spoke equally as bitterly.
He said the governor had no right to Inter
fere with the rights of the senate.
"I, for one," he shouted. "am ready to
protect my own rights and privileges."
Salyer, democrat, was not carried off his
feet by this storm of denunciation of the
governor. He said it was the duty of the
senate out of respect to the givernor to
send a committee to find out from that
official If he had issued such an order. "If
it is found," said he, "that the governor
has issued such an order, then I am in
favor of passing the resolution, but let us
not act hastily."
Bronston said: "Never will that commit
tee go to the governor with my consent or
with my vote.".
"Or mine." cried Goeble and others.
The sheriff, who was present, here said
that he hadl received the orders mentioned
from the governor.
Senator Bronston said: "I denounce the
act of the governor if it were with the lest
drop of my blood. It is outrageous and tun
lawful, a treacherous act. I denounrce it,"
he almost screamed. amidst the pounding
of the ga.el and the suppressed hum of
many voices.
"Let the governor leave us alone. Pass
the resolutions and condemn the man vwho
is governor by accident. I denounce his
action and am ready as a Kentuckian and
as a man."
Then, whIte as a sheet the senator sat
down. The sergeant-at-arms shouted: "The
Presiding officer will clear the floor."
Then Senator Deboc rose -'nd Jenounced
the reflection of Dronston on Gov. Bradley
as false and untrue. "I say it to his face,"
said he, glaring at Bronston.
Then he sat down.
Senator Bronston jumped up alid com
menced to unbutton his vest, and many
present thought that the time for blood
shed had arrived.
Before he could act the presiding officer
succeeded by'- pounding the gavel and
pleading for quiet in restoring order.
Senator Salyer arose and said that he
was not willing to insult the governor of
Kentucky, and moved to refer. the motion
offered by Bronston to the committee on
rules, and this was done.
Bror-stmn, Goeble and the leaders of
Blackburn, seeing that they had been out
voted, subsided, and one of the most re
markable scenes ever witnessed in a de
liberative body had ended.
If the sheriff attempts to clear the sen
ate cloak room there will he trouble, as
Blackburn and his friends say they will not
get out.
The news of the exciting scenes in the
senate had reached the house before the
joint assembly arrived. The call of the roll
developed the fact that the republicans had
not succeeded in getting out all their mem
bers. There were two Dairs.
The roll call showed 128 members present'
necessary to a choice, 65. The reading o
the journals was dispensed with, without
any attempt to delay the proceedings.
The republicans again refused to vote, and
there was no quorum. When Populist Poor's
name was called he refused to vote.
The chair announced that there had been
no election. The assembly then adjourned.
Later.-Governor Bradley denies having
given the sheriff any such orders as stated.
Senator Bronston has begged the governor's
pardon.

LOUISVIrLLUi Ky., March 18.-A speelal
to the Post from Frankfort sayst
The state house was fall of ominous rv
marS this mforsiag Party leadlers hurries
Boyle, the republican nominee, was con
sulting all nighL Into his rooms at the
Capit"l Hotel the leader went with mys
teriou rapidity.
It was not deanie that Mr. Boyle and his
friends detemined to ignore the Illegal ex
pulsion of Senators James and Walton by
the senate Wednesday, and that at the
proper time these serators were to rise in
their seats, be recognized by the chairman
and cast their votes for Boyle, whether
the clerk of the senate, who Is chief clerk
of the ibint assembly, recorded their votes
or not. Of course, he will refuse to call
their names or enter their votes as cast on
the journal, but this, the republicans have
decided, is not necessary if Dunlap will
qualify and vote for the nominee.
Mr. Boyle received another long telegram
from Senator John Sherman todayr, In
which he gave It as his opinion that sixty
nine votes constituted a legal quorum since
the death of Senator Weissinger, and with
Dunlap and the two illegally expelled sena
tors voting with the other sixty-six mem
bers, would elect, and that, in his opinion,
the Ser ate of the United States would so
decide.
The ruling of Lieutenant Governor
Worthington yesterday, that reventy votes
were required to make a legal quorum, did
not disturb the leaders. They believed
that the ruling would be changed. The
republicans called In all the pairs. There
was to be no faith put In the vote of Popu
list Poor for Boyle, although that unfor
tur.ate member was overwhelmed by let
ters and telegrams from his home county,
urging him to vote for the nominee. Both
James and Walton were in the house cham
ber shortly after that body met. Dr.
James declares he will answer his name
if called. Walton says the same.
It develops this morning that the demo
cratic members are far from being united
on the policy to be pursued.
WILLIS TO LEAVE HAWAII.
Comment at Honolulu on the Minis
ter's Intention.
SAN FRANCISCO. March 13.-A special
fr m Honolulu to a local paper says:
United States Minister Willis has an
nounced his Irtention of leaving Hawaii
April 15. This statement, made In the face
of the minister's recent denunciation of a
similar report. is construed and generally
believed to mean that he will not return.
Many people are of the opinion that the
American legation will be closed for the
.rerpiainder of President Cleveland's term,
in order to get even with the Dole regime
for criticlsing the action of Minister Willis
in refusing to acknowledge the January
celebration. Mr. Willis' departure is looked
upon as the only recourse left, as he has
been peisona non grata from the moment
of his arrival. There has been more or less
talk of tha possibility of the Hawaiian gov
ernment giving Minister Will!s his pass
po:-ts. and it is fair to surmise that Wfllis
is leaving to prevent such a contingency.
What in Said at the State Department
It is said at the State Department that
there is no special significance in the home
coming of Minister Willis. Ile has been
at his post constantly for two years and
desires to come home to look after his
private business affairs. He made applil
cation for leave of absence for that pur
pose some time ago, and his application
was granted. No one at the State De
partment will discuss the question as to
Mr. Wills' personal relations with the
Hawaiian government or the prospect of
his return to that country, further than to
say that there is no known reason why
he should not go back unless he prefers
to return to private life. The intimation
that the United States legation will be
closed during the remainder of President
Cleveland's administration is not credited
in official circles. On the departpre nf
Minister Willis Consul General Mils will
undoubtedly be made charge ('affaires,
and he can continue to act in that capacity,
in the event that Minister Willis does not
return to Honolulu. until his successor
shall have been appointed.
Mr. Willis .s probably no more "persona
non grata" just at th!s particolar time
than he has bec-n ever since he asked Pres
ident Dole to resign his office at the head
of the government. and replace the dis
reputable queen on her opera houiffe throne.
While his nresence in Honolulu is hardly
agreeable to the government he tried to
destroy, at the tidding of President Cleve
land. it is not considered likely that he will
be given his passports, inasmuch as the
government has no desire to further strain
the rclations with the United States.
The statement that Minister Willis has
been granted leave of absence is confirmed
by the following special dispatch from
Honolulu:
"United States Minister Willis and fam
ily will leave April 15 for the United States.
The minister will go first to Washington,
and from there to his old home in Louis
vlle. With regard to the matter of his de
parture Mr. Willis said: 'I have been grant
ed sixty days' leave of absence. This is
accorded to every American representative
of the United States each year. Hereto
fore I have been kept so busy that I have
been unable to avail myself of the fur
lough. j My departure from Honolulu has no
political significance whatever.'
"When asked if circumstances might not
arise which would prevent his return, the
minister said: 'Of course, such is not Im
possible. However, I expect to return in
two months. I am going for rest, which
I feel I greatly need.'"
GROSSLY EXAGGERATED.
The Report of the Desertion of an
Italian Corporal's Guard.
VIENNA, March 13.-An investigation in
to the report circulated by a news agency
in the United States that "the entire Ital
Ian garrison at Verona has deserted, with
its arms and baggage, and crossed the
Austrian border into Tyrol," discloses the
following facts: *
The Neue Freie Presse this morning an
nounced that the grard on duty at Fort
Ceraino, consisting of about eight men, led
by a corporal, Zamberlin, recently deserted
through fear of being ordered to Abyssinia.
This was previous to the postponement of
the departure of the Italian reinforcements
for Aica.
As Verona has a population of about 70,
000ji inhabitants, is strongly fortified, stands
near one of the gorges of the Tyrol and has
accommodation for a garrison of 20,000~
men, it will be seen that a more inexcus
ably sensational and misleading report
could not have been sent out.
SU'RGEON LAMOTT MISSING.

NEW YORK, March 18.-Mrs. Henry La

police to look for her husband, who has
been missing since Monday. Dr. Lamott
left the navy yard Monday, stating he was

Boston today and notified the Brooklyn po
lice of his disappearance.

Health Officer Woodwsrd, as soon as he
learned that two passengers from the fruit
steamer whieh landed in Baltimore yester
day, and which had on board a case of
smallpox, were it the city, went at once to
see them, and questioned them carefully
concerning their trip. He was assured that
neither of them had been exposed. He ex
pressed himself as satisfied that neither one
of the gentlemen had been exposed, and
thought no more would be heard of the
case.

AN IMPORTANUT DOCUMENT
Submitted at Tod Meeting of the
Venumue
It Sets Forth the tio of Afairs
in the Disisate Tex'ritory
Some Y:mairAge,
All the members th Venezuelan com
mission were presen at the regular weekly
meeting today, and the, etire morning ses
sion was consumed in 4 ussion of matter
already before the body.
Mr. Scruggs, the counsel for the Vene
zuelan government, called just before the
meeting opened and presented another
pamphlet, supplementing the case laid be
fore the commission a day or two ago.
This was a volume of thirty-eight pages,
entitled "Official Report of the Condition of
Affairs in the Disputed Territory in March,
1890." It comprises ' correspondence be
tween the Venezuelan consul at George
town, British Guiana, and his home govern
ment, decrees of the Venezuelan minister
of the interior, and reports from and in
structions to Dr. Seijas, who was the head
of a special commission appointed by the
Venezuelan government to ascertain just
wfiat inroads the British were making into
Venezuelan territory.
What It Shown.
The matter is interesting mainly because
of the light it casts upon the situation in
the disputed territory following the discov
ery of gold in paying quantities and the
conditions which led up to the clash at
Yuruan. In March the Venezuelan consul
informs his government that the governor
of British Guiana had started with a party
on the 15th to rrake an official visit to the
Barima and Amadura rivers; also that a
private excursion, headed by J. S. Har
greaves, had started for the mines in the
Venezuelan Yuruan territory. To meet
this the Venezuelan government immedi
ately appointed a comn ission, headed by
Dr. Seijas, also to go into this territory,
placing Lt its disposal the warship Reivin
cador.
This was designated as a "political, ex
ecutive. scientific and exploring commission
to the territory in dispute with the English
Guayana." Meanwhile the governor of the
Yuruan was instructed to facilitate the
work of the commission and to uphold the
ridhts of Venezuela in his territory.not per
mitting any English authority or commls
sion to exercise any act of jurisdiction
whatever in the property of the republic.
To that end he was to send to the frontier
one or more reconnoitering parties under
the direction of skillful, prudent and pa
triotic men to repel in every possible man
ner every overt attempt at usurpation.
A Proposition Declined.
Upcn the arrival of Dr. Seijas at George
town he proposed to the British governor
a modus vivendi until both nations could
agree upon a final adjustment of the dis
pute, but the governor replied that he had
no instructions in the matter, and request
ed that the proposal be submitted in writ
ing, which was done. Later the goveror
wrote that he had transmitted the request
to the British government for actiorn.
Reporting upon thtse events to the min
ister of the interior. Dr. Seijas said that it
was to be adluced that "the English policy
while in Londc.n s.-eking excuses and pre
texts for not accepting Arbitration or a rea
scnable settlement of- the dispute, endeav
ors to A'ain time for the governor of Dr,.nao
rara to advance as fax as he possibly can
in our lapd, and occupy, 4 great part there
of."
Energetic A-tion Recommended.
Therefore he commentied the most ener
getic acticn on the part of his own gov
ernment to me.et this policy; the running
of telegraph lines near to the border: the
establishment of a Venezuelan prefecture in
Cuyuni and EssiquIho, the establishment of
flying camps adjacent tiO the- British loca
tions and the maintenpnce of communica
tion by steamboat with the olieials In the
territory.
HELP FOR THE NEEDY.
Distressing Cusen Reported to the As
noeinted Charities.
The Associated Charities and its agents
have had their hands full during the past
few days endeavcring to provide for the
suffering poor, whose condition has been
rendered-pitiful In a large number of cases
by the stormy weather. A Stat reporter
examun.ed the reports turned into Secretary
Wilson this morning showing the record of
yesterday, and some of the cases cited
were very touching. The majority of cases
are those of sickness, and most of the re
pcrts of such cases bbre the indorsement,
"Refused because of lack of funds."
Another agent, after citing a case of deso
lation, asked: "Can anything be done to
save these people from starving?" There
was an instancset forth of a woman liv
ing in a small shanty on the bleak com
irons. She Is ill, and has a young baby,
ard is absolutely without means.
Secretary Wilson wishes It understood
that by the system employed it is impos
sible for deception or duplication to be
practiced, and therefore every cent con
tributed is sure to be expended where it
will do the most good. The responses to
the call for aid are coming in steadily, and
it is now possible to assist in a slight de
gree some of the extreme cases that are
brought to the attention of the organiza
tion, but more funds are needed at once.
The contributions received through Mr.
Jchn Joy Edson and The Evening Star, in
response to the appeal of the emergency
relief committee, up to this afternoon, are

DISTRICT AFFAIRS
Olammissineo Fure8 Gonsider the Ama
- osi Railroad,
President Grieweli Sent Few-'aex
tion of Street Railway Transfers
Drawing to a Solution.
A private conference between President
Griswold and the Commissioners was about
all the public business transacted at the
Commissioners' office today that is worth
rehearsing. The Commissioners were not
altogether satisfied with Presidentr Gris
wold's report concerning the condition of
the Anacostia road when they called him
before them the other day to show cause
why he should not be required to run two
horse cars and conductors over the route of
the Anacostia and Potomac River railroad.
The discussion took place in Maj. Pow
ell's private office, and no one was present
except the Commissioners and President
Griswold, ivho had been summoned by let
ter. The Ccmmissioners explained that
Senator McMillan's resolution concerning
the Anacostia road was before them for
report, and they wanted to know if Mr.
Griswold had anything further to offer.
Perhaps he was willing to enter into some
arrangement with the Metropolitan rail
toad whereby the passengers on his road
would be transferred to the Metropolitan
road. President Griswold, it is understood,
agreed to this, provided the Commissioners
would distinctly state that the arrange
ment was only temporary, or until the
Anacostia road improved its road by sub
stituting rapid transit. This stipulation
was urged by Mr. Griswold, it is under
stood, because he was unwilling to concur
in any arrangement that might vitiate the
road's charter by failing to operate a por
tion of the line.
Transfer System.
Late this afternoon the Commissioners
finally agreed upon a substitute bill for
the free transfer bill and sent it to Con
gress.
The bill 4rovides for a straight 5-cent fare
with transfers with all the street rallroads
in the city.
Transfcrs are to be given at 9th and F
streets between the Ar-acostia and Met
ropolitan railroads; at 9th and G streets,
between the Anacostia and Eckington
roads going east; at Pennsylvania avenue
and 14th street, from the Capital Traction
Company, south on the Belt Line and
west on the Capital Triction Company, at
New York avenue and 15th street.
From the Columbia road to the Capital
Traction Company going west; at 15th and
G streets, from the Eekington road going
west on the Capital Traction; at 11th and
G streets, between the Eckington and Sol
diers' Home north on the Metropolitan; at
New Jersey avenue and C street, in the
Capital Traction going east and on the
Eckington and Metropolitan :ystems. and
at H and 4th streets transferring on the
Belt and east on the Columbia road.
Sunday Law Not NeededL
House bill 167, which is a bill to protect the
first day of the week, commonly called Sun
day, as a day of rest and worship in the
District of Columbia, has been unfavorably
reported l;y the Commissioners to Congress.
In a letter accompanying the bIll they say:
"Strictly constructed, it would prevent the
hiring of licyelea or cabs, deliveries of milk
and ice, the sale of mineral waters, Sunday
papers; provent Sunday work on Monday
newspapers; the running of street cars,
steamboats, hiring of horses or vehicles, the
sale of railroad tickets, and the use of tele
phones. etc.
"The Commissioners are not aware of any
demand for the enactment of such legisla
tion among the citizens of the District. Un
der tie existing laws the first day of the
week is recognized as a day of rest; scenes
of disorder on that day are almost unknown;
the sale of liquor does not prevail, and no
city in the United States can show a better
record, so far as the peaceful and orderly
observance of Sunday is concerned."
Rntlivay Franchises.
The Comniissioners have returned to Con
gress with adverse report House bill 5114,
which contemplates the sale at public auc
tion of all street railway franchises asked
for in the future. They say they are not
assured that the propose.d legislation would
be advistible for'the public interests at this
time.
Privates Appointed.
The Commissioners have appointed G. E.
Burlingame and Richard Stewart privates
of the first class of the metropolitan police
force.
Fire Department.
Upon the recommendations of Chief Parr's
the Commimtsioners have removed Private
T. H. Garrison of the tire department, and
appointed Joseph A. Kidwell to fill the va
cancy.
MR. WEBB STILL ALIVE,

of the District of Columbia, was alive at

any moment.

AGAINST THE LICENSE
A ?um tatJSug IdoeiiroaoIbjectst
a Uq.. !m.
EX-seeirmary Janl W. yvfter Dectares
DUg OpSoatoso to Grantins a
LUcese Mr. Donell=y.
The long-standing question whether Mr.
Donnelly, the grocer at the southwest cor
ner of 14th and I streets, should have a
wholesale liquor license was the subject of
a hearing before the excise board yester
day afternoon. Mr. Donnelly's place Is in
the neighborhood where ex-Secretary of
State John W. Foster, John W. Thompson
and Senator Chandler live. Here also lived
the late widow of Chief Justice Waite. Mr.
Nathaniel Wilson appeared as attorney for
Mr. Foster and the nther propert3 holders
who object to Mr. Donnelly's having a
license, and Mr. Foster and Mr. Thompson
were also present before the board. Mr.
W. F. Mattingly appeared for Mr. Donnel
ly, who was himself present
The point at issue was whether Donnelly's
application for a l'cense was on file March
3. when tne act regulating the sale of liquor
In the District went into effect. The rec
ords do not show that it was, and It this
were proven under the law he would be un
der the obligation of getting signers on his
application, which he could not do, it is 4
said. Mr. Mattingly said that there was In
existence a notice from the excise board to i
Donnelly to aplear before the board on 1
March 3, and he also stated that Mills i
Dean. who was formerly Donnelly's attor- I
ney, had knowledge of the matter, but be- 4
irg paralyzed could not set the matter 1
straight. Mr. Wilson insisted that the rec
ords showed that Donnelly was not within I
the law, and that on all the facts in the
case he was not entitled to a license.
Mr. Foster said that if the case was to
be postponed he might not be able to be
present. arnd he therefore desired to make I
a statement in his own behalf and of his
neighbors. He said there appeared to be I
an impression about the offices of the 'ex- I
cise board that the opposition to the grant- I
ing of this license was in the nature of a I
persecution of an inoffensive citizen. Noth- 9
ing was further from the truth. When he
(Mr. Foster) purchased his present resi- I
dence there was no licensed liquor saloon I
in that vicinity, and there had been none 9
for a number of years. But since lWie
four places for the sale of liquor had been I
granted licenses by the authorities within I
a short d!stance of his residence. and on
or immediately adjoining the corner of i
and 14th streets. In 1@4. learning that I
Donnelly had applied for a license, a pro- I
test was filed against granting it upon the I
ground that his place was within 4.01 feet
of a school house, and because he was an
unfit person to have a license. Thns re
monstrance was.signed by Senator CIhand
ler, John W. Thompson, the late widow of 1
Chief Justice Waite, U. H. 'ainter and Mr.
Foster. There had already been tiled a
statement showing that Donnelly had with
in the last few years been before the Police
Court thirty-one times and fined twenty
one times for violating the liquor laws,
and that he had testified In court that he
had made $4,u4") a year out of his liquor
and restaurant business when he held no
license. I
Notwithstanding these facts, the excise I
board granted the license. In view of the 4
situation. Mr. Foster said. this proceeding I
was not a persecution, but an effort of the I
resident property holders' to secure some I
respect and protection for their rights and A
to prevent their neighborhood from being I
turned into "a whisky row." He believed
the excise board had acted under a misap
prehension of the facts. and now that the
ccrrect state of the case was known he had
confidence the board would do their duty I
and reject the pendling application. If not.
the res'dents would be forced to appeal to
the President and Congress for redress.
Mr. Mattingly said he wanted the case de
cided on its legal merits. without question of
the applicant's character. To this Mr. Wil
son said he was confident of preventing
Donnelly from getting a license. but at the
same tine he should claim the right to show
that the applicant wap not a fit person to
have a license. It was finally agreed to post
pone the case until March 21.
"RECIPROCITY AND PROTECTEON."
K. Clay Evans Says They Will Be
the Republican Watchwords.
NASHVILLE, Tenn., March 13.-In an
interview with an American reporter, H.
Clay Evans, probable nominee by the re
publicans' for governor' of Tennessee, and
prominently spoken of as. nominee for
the vice presidency, sai. relative to the
national campaign:
"Reciprocity and protection will be the
watchwords of the national republican
campr.ign in 1P6. I do not think the finan
cial question will cut a great figure in the
campaign. I favor the use of both grold and
silver, but I am for the single standard of
valuation. Or. in other words, I am in
favor of all money which is issued by the
government, whether gold, silver or paper
money, being worth IOU cents In value and
each as good as the other."
Mr. Evans also said if he was rominated
for governor he thought he would be easily
elected.

this force will be dropped from the rolls by
the middle of .July, the remaining ones
comprising the permanent census division.

nug sales aggregated cver six thousand

ealising sales. A good demand was en
ountered at the decline, however. and
ubsequent trading was steady, with indi

London's irregularity and indifference
rere responsible for a general shading off
n values in all parts of the international
ist. St. Paul's dividend having been prac
Ically assured for several weeks inspired
ales rather than purchases among the
rading element, on the theory that profit
aking in the long account would make
hort sales profitable.
The evening up of traders' contracts
broughout the day resulted in irregular
nd spasmodic movements totally void of
ignificance. There Is almost no likelihood
of any material setback In vales, but a
oerlod of dullness and professaanal domina
Ion of prices is practically assured.
Senatorial action on the Cuban resolu
ions will dispose of the most objetctionable
'eature of the situation, and w.%iU in all
orobablilty inspire a weU-distributed de

American Tobacco was again bought by
he interests credited with originating the
ecent sharp upward movement, a two per
!ent advance being recorded during the
noon hour. While the street Is tiled with
heories in explanation of the unwarranted
lurry recorded on Wednesday, no evidence
of the actual Incentive has been submitted.
That two strong forces organized for
ourpoaes dirctIy opposite came Into col
Ison has never been doubted, consequently
he frequent tecital of this patent fact by
aside interests serves no purpos. as an
mxplanatory argument. The anti-trust
nanufacturers insist that the situation Is
mncharged and that a commercial war still
xists, with Every prospect of its becoming
nore fierce. The over-prompt action of
he Tobacco directory it. passing the Feb

in equally pronipt return to the dividend

This action would result In a substantial
Ltvance over present prices. and would un
loubtedly be followed by a sharp decline
ts the result of a general selling of the

In view of the extreme risk involve-i. the
peculative public will do well to let those

xclusively to themselves.
The trading during the last hour was
lull and entirely eonfined to the room. The
