SCHURZ'S CRITICISM
Secretary Gage's Position, It is Claim
ed, is Not Weakened,
ORIGINAL STATEMENT NOT DENIED
Democrats Greatly Delighted With
the Letter.
THE payment of silver
Mr Carl Schura's letter to Secretary Gaga j
in criticUn of the Secretary's Interview In
which the danger cf our belli* put upon a
si" ver basis If Mr. Bryan should be elected
w <s discussed, doss not provoka very fen
oral comment among republicans here.
Frora a republican point of view Mr.
Sohurs's latter In no way weakens the po
sition taken by Secretary Gage. Secretary
Cr.tjii* pointed out that the law fixing the
g > il standard was not such as to prevent
Mr. Bryan from forcing us upon a silver
basis if he were elected President and chose
to do so. It is suggested by republican
comment upon Mr. Schurs's letter that this
statement of .the Secretary's Is not denied,
nor 1* confldenc? expres-ed anywhere in the
letter that Mr. Bryan would not avail him
self of the opportunity to "do something
for s-tlver" !f he had the power.
on the contrary, they suggest. Mr. Schura
criticises the republican party for not bind
ing Mr. Bryan's hands more securely, if
any freedom ha-* been left Mm, and calls
upon the republicans to come to the rescue
of the country by more binding legislation
between now and" the 1th of March should
Brvan be elected. The intimation by Mr.
S-hura that the act establishing the gold
standard passed by the present Congress
was purposely made defective in order to
render the re-election of President McKin
essential to the preservation of a sound
money basis Is generally pass?*J over as
unworthy of comment- It is spoken of a.s
a curious oommentary upon the attitude of
the democrats and the unusual mental op
eration of the gold men who now desire to
support Mr. B>yan that their arguments
li> favor of the defeat of Mr. McKlnley are
based on the proposition that the republi
cans, by wise financial legislation, either
bare rendered It or must render it safe for
the country to experiment with Mr. Bryan
as Ch'ef Executive: In other words, that
while surrendering the government to the
democratic administration the republicans
must take steps to protect the country
against disastrous consequences of the
change.
Secretary Gage and some one speaking
for the republican congressional committee
expect to reply to Mr. Schurs, but did not
have the opportunity to do so this morning.
Democrat* Delighted.
The democrats, of course, are very great
ly delighted at Mr. Schura's reply. The
ba-?'s of their satisfaction Is that Schura, a
prominent single gold standard advocate,
should feel impelled to thus publicly cham
pion the cause of Mr. Bryan on this par- j
tlcular point of financial policy. Democrats j
particularly dwell on the lack of sufficient
stiver in the possesion of the government
to accomplish what Mr. Gage suggests the
danger of, and that Mr. Gage in a subse
quent Interview declared that the silver
money issued by the government under the
present law is as good as any other money.
They further say that one of the firm con
tentions of the democratic party is that
the executive shall not have power to de
termine the standard of value by executive
action without authority of Congress.
These points, however, are not made by Mr. j
Schura in his letter, which places the entire j
responsibility for maintaining the single
gold standard upon the republican party,
which he wants put out of power.
Mr. Schnri'* Letter.
After quoting from Secretary Gage's In
terview In The Star and calling attention
to his own devotion to the cause of sound
money, Mr. Schurz says in his letter to the
Secretary:
"I emphatically deny. Mr. Secretary, that
th? danger set forth by you in your Inter
views really exists, and that any President
will be able to do what you say might be
done, unless the republican party In con
trol of the government In both Its legis
lative and executive branches, prove itself
utterly dishonest in Its professed purpose
t.. maintain the gold standard.
"This denial la not based upon the rea
soning of those of your critics who seek to
show by figures that a President desiring
ever so much to put the country upon a
silver basis, would lack the means for do- j
lug so. On the contrary, for argument's
sake.. I will accept all you say on that i
point. But you omit to mention a fact of
decisive importance.
Aliened Klan In the Lsw.
"If the executive, as you say. possesses
the discretion of 'paying silver in settle
ment of all interest on the public debt not
specifically payable in gold, and of making
Its daily disbursements to its creditors in j
silver.' It Is owing to a flaw in the cur- !
rency law passed at the last session of ;
Congress?a law which, .is the spokesman
..f the republican party promised, was to |
put the gold standard upon an Impregnable j
basis. It was suggested at the time by
some of Its critics that this law was pur
p.selv 30 manipulated by republican politi
cians in the Senate as to leave the pos
sibility of the subversion of the gold stand
ard by executive action open In order to
enable the republicans in the present presi
dential campaign to say that the election i
of a republican President was absolutely j
necessary to save the gold standard and j
to nrevent dreadful economic disaster. !
Whether any such scheme entered Into that
legislation. J do not assume to determine.
Certain It Is. however, that this feature
of the law is now so used, and that you,
\l:\ Secretary, actually do so use it, for the
evident purpose of alarming the business
?? immunity and the possessing classes gen
erally."
Remedial !.?-? inlat ion.
Proceeding, he censures the Secretary for
giving a "false alarm, and says:
"Whoever may be elected President on
November 6. there will be another session
of Congress before he will take office on
March 4. liml. The republicans will have
s'rnitg majorities In both houses of that
Congress The executive, too. will be in
their hands They will, therefore, be able
to make such laws as they please. They
will thus have full power and ample op
portunity before the Inauguration of the
i;.-xt Pr-sident to pass any legislation re
quired to make it utterly Impossible to
any President to break down the gold
siandatd in the way you, Mr. Secretary,
describe in your Interview. A simple en
actment In two cr three Itnes substantially
providing that it shall be the duty of the
Secretary of the Treasury to pay in gold
or silver, at the option of the creditor, all
kinds of Indebtedness of the 1'nlted States
row payable in coin, may be sufficient."
The rest of the letter is devoted to en
largement upon the opportunity and the
duty of the republicans to make abso
lutely sure the gold standard before Mr.
Bryan can be inaugurated if elected.

STOKERS REFUSEDTOWORK
MUTINY ON BRITISH TRANSPORT
CARRYING 1,400 MILKS.
?
Mnlttrrrii Aboard AI*o Ca??ed Tron
lile Orrr Their Fare?Vessel
at New Orleans.
NEW ORLEANS, September 4.?Instead
of having obtained a good start on her long
Journey, the British transport Montca'tn,
with 1,400 mules for South Africa, which
cleared Saturday night from this port, has
been anchored in midstream a few miles
below New Orleans for forty-eight hours.
A mutiny on board caused the delay in the
sailing of the transport. English stokers
refused to work alongside of Danish stok
ers and Chicago muleteers rebelled against
the quality of the food furnished.
All day the acting British consul at this
port, Mr. Donnelly, the agent of the vessel,
and a commission of British ship captains
wrestled with the prob'em which confronts
the big steamship. Late last night scores
of the ringleaders of ths mutiny were
placed in prison.
The Montcalm cleared Saturday night and
dropped down the river a few miles, in
tending to start for the gulf Sunday. Sun
day, however, the British stokers refused to
go to work. They had learned that four
Danish stokers had been given places in the
ship's crew, and they refused to handle a
shovel of coal until they had been dis
placed. Then a complication deve'oped in
another quarter.
Over seventy muleteers had been shipped
and of the seventy thirty hailed from Chi
cago. The Chlcagoans had had one meal
from the ship's fare and went on a strike.
Efforts at compromise fell flat. As a last
resort the troubles were reported to the
acting British consul. The latter called In
a commission of British ship captains who
happened to be in port and ordered them to
sit as a commission upon the ship's stores.
They did so and reported them clean and
wholesome.
The agents said that the Danish stokers
should stay and the captain was ordered to
start at once for sea. He attempted to
carry out his orders, but the men rebelled.
The muleteers began to make all kinds of i
threats and a riot was In progress aboard
when the law was appealed to and a whole
sale round-up of the ringleaders was In
augurated.
At first the report came from the point
off which the Montcalm was anchored that
seventy-five men had been made prisoners,
but only forty were marched to jail. They
were the British stokers. It seems that the
muleteers got wind of what was going to
happen and made their escape. The stok
ers are being held on the charge of contem
plating a breach of the peace until the act
ing British consul and the captain of the
Montcalm decide on what course to pursue.

BROOKLYN'S BALANCE OF POWER
Prize Fighting Lost Its Interest
Because of Crookedness.
SMALL "BANKERS" HURT
Special CV>rr?e|K>ndenee of The Evening Star.
NEW YORK- September 3, 1000.
Last Wednesday's primaries made posi
tive one thing'?Hugh McLaughlin, who had
Bird S. Coler nominated for controller, can
have him nominated for governor. He will
have the balance of power in the nominating
convention. If Coler is not nominated he
will know to whom to charge his defeat.
The situation so far as Coler and his friends
are concerned is just as they want it in one
respect. There was no factional warfare
over delegates, and Coler's campaign man
agers say that that disposes of the charge
that their candidate is a factionlst. The
primary election in Brooklyn all went one
way. The nomination for governor can, in
consequence, go all one way. That is the
view of Coler and his friends, and they are
confident and hajjpy. But Hugh McLaugh
lin will not say 'the word that will make
Coler the nominee unless the men who rep
resent hi in and speak for him?Shevlin and
McCarren?break faith. They have pledged
the support of Kings county to Croker. and
that means that Coler will not be nomi
nated. What brings up the hopes of the
Colerites is this: They argue to their own
satisfaction that neither McLaughlin nor
Croker has said anything to prevent them
from turning to Coler; that they are in a
position to say at the last moment that
Coler is the logical candidate. It is ex
Senator Murphy. James Shevlin and Sena
tor McCarren who have been doing all the
talking against Coler. That they have been
leading the opposition with the knowledge
and consent of the big bosses Is understood,
but stranger shifts have taken place in poli
tics than the one that is anticipated, the
Colerites declare.
The activity on the other side in the
Croker-Murphy camp would lead observers
to a different conclusion. Their campaign
was planned from the start to prevent the
nomination of Coler.
The preliminaries have been fought and
won on that line, and there seems to be no
reason today why it should not be carried
out to the end that was intended. With the
assurance that Kings county will stand by
the Croker-Murphy people. Croker Is go
ing ahead to extend his control in the state
through ex-Senator Murphy and to accom
plish finally the overthrow of.David B. Hill.
All that remains to be done now is to agree
on a nominee. John B. Stanehfield con
tinues in favor. Croker has made a quali
fied denial that Stanehfield was not "his"
candidate. He did not say that Stanehfield
would not be nominated. Smith M. Weed
of Plattsburg also has a chance. Croker
continues to say he has no candidate. It is
an open field, but at the same time he is
casting about for a suitable man to nom
inate. At the proper time his name will be
made Known. Any one familiar with poll
tics knows that the "open race"' and "open
Held" talk is political fiction. This much
may be pretty safely predicted, the man
Richard Croker favors will be nominated.
Ch.-ilrmiin Frank Campbell of the demo
cratic state committee says: "The situation
is unchanged. The matter all rests in the
hands of the Brooklyn delegation."
Some I'rixe Fitcht Statistic*.
Now that the Horton law Ls about to go
out and boxing in this state will be illegal,
it ls interesting to review what has been
accomplished while it was in force. Since
1KJMI, when it was enacted, there have been
3,350 tights. The total gate receipts at a
minimum estimate were $2,520,0)10; the to
tal attendance, 1.70O.?x?>: the fighters' share
of the money, JSKWtmo, and the propioters'
or clul)s' share. It will thus be
seen that more than two and one-half mil
lion dollars have been expended by the
public, with less return for the expendi
ture than any form of amusement, during
the period that fighting has been allowed to
proceed unrestrained.
A peculiar fact in connection with the
operation of the law was that it was not
possible to do In Buffalo what It was pos
sible to do in Greater New York. 'J ne law
specially provided that matches could be
brought off In any athletic club In the
state "that complied with its conditions.
When an attempt was made to conduct a
fight In the western part of the state be
tween boxers of some note. Influence from
Oreater New York prevented It. The sole
object was to bring every match of con
sequence to this city, where It was Im
possible for any fighter to step into tne
ring except by the consent of the prize
fighting trust. While there have been some
matches conducted under the Horton law
that were honest and fair, there has been
so much treachery and deceit In connec
tion with Its existence that every man who
ls In favor of decent sport ls glad that a
change ls to be brought about.
Proiipret for Tennla Xext Year.
The international side of next year's
tennis season is already beginning to be
the subject of anxious consideration by
players and those InVerested In the game
on this side of the water. This year, which
has been so successful from every point
of ?view, has been marked by the visit of
an English team to this country, and there
is considerable anxiety that the interna
tional matches should be repeated here
next year. Dwlght L. Davis, the Harvard
player, who donated the International cup
and who was largely Instrumental in
bringing the English players over, has gone
to England to see what arrangement can
be made for next year. His plans are
broad and are of such Importance as to
make certain an extraordinary year for
lawn tennis should he succeed In his pres
ent mission. It provides for the appear
ance of the famous Doherty brothers on
the American courts next year as the En
glish challengers for he trophy. In all
England the Doherty.- re regarded as the
kings of the court. ar.>l no player on the
other side of the Atlantic has come any
where near to equaling them In skill and
ability. The elder brother, R. P. Doherty,
holds the English championship in the
singles and also many of the titles to be
won on the courts of Germany and France.
The younger brother only pairs for the
doubles, and In these events the skill of
the Doherty team has made them in
vincible wherever they are entered. Davis
is sure that he can gain their consent to
play in America, and will allow nothing to
stand In the way of bringing about the
successful issue of his .cherished hopes.
He expects to have them come over early
and do a lot of practicing and playing in
tournaments, so that they will be at their
real form when the International contests
for the challenge cup are held.
American Team GoIiik to England.
There !s also on foot a contemplated
visit of an American team to the English
tournaments. Davis will endeavor to per
suade the English Lawn Tennis Associa
tion to offer a trophy to entice the best
men in this country to make a trial of
their skill abroad. In the event of the
Englishmen putting up a cup or making
somo other satisfactory offer. Davis in
tends to lead an American "team of experts
through a series of tournaments in Eng
land. It is also probable that such a team
would enter in some of the meetings on
the continent of Europe, especially in the
German and French championships. The
national champion, Malcolm D. Whitman,
will sursly play on an American team
should one be made up for foreign play.
Davis does not place any confidence In
the report that Whitman will retire from
the game. He thinks, however, that the
rational champion may allow some of his
lesser titles to go by default, but that he
will still defend at Newport In the all
comers' meeting next year. Whitman will
also play in defense of the international
cup against a challenging team. No man
is better fitted for bringing about the re
sults he is seeking than Is DavUi. He has
made himself popular with the visiting
English players, and Gore and Black are
eager to co-operate with him In all that
he may undertake. DTvls will witness the
play at Eastbourne and Brighton, but does
not Intend to enter for any of the tourna
ments. His whole time will be devoted
to furthering international play and the
Interests of lawn tennis both at home and
abroad.
Small Bail^en la Hard Lack.
The east elde"-bankers" have receive* a
??rere blow, a^d many of the smaller fry
among them wffl 4odn?r or later have to go
out of business. Their chief source of In
come was on Slants on Russia bought by
Immigrants in thla country to send money
to their wives or relatives at home. Apart
from the direct profits derived from these
transactions tJ^j?have been a great con
venience to the small banking offices or
Canal, Grand or Essex struct, snabuag
them to use the money intrusted to them
for transmission in their own business. In
stead of being sent to Russia at once the
sum to be forwarded Is often detained a
week or more to help the "banker pay
his bills. The people In Russia thus re
ceive the remittance later than they ought
to, but this does not matter, so long as
they receive it at all. For cases where a
"banker" disappears with a few thousand
dollars belonging to poor Jewish familiesi in
Europe are not very uncommon, and tne
question on the east side is not so mupl*
whether the money sent is to get to us
destination without delay as whether it
will ever leave the "bank" through
it is sent. Now. however, that the unltea
States and Russia have signed a treaty under
which the post offices of this country ac
cept money remittances for the cxar s em
pire, things are gradually assuming a new
form. This treaty* has been tn force since
April 1, and although the Ghettos of our
large cities are rather slow In discovering
the fact, the number of Russian mon*y
orders Issued by the post offices Is growing
apace and the business of the Ghetto banns
Is suffering a proportionate falling on. ?Jne
of the rooms In the foreign money oTn '
department In the general post office in
this city has as many desks as there a
countries which have a money order treaty
with our governmwat. each desk rePre^f"J:" I
ing a special country. The accounts ban- j
died at these are not confined to this city,
but come from all over the United^ State .
The Russian Aesk. which was added to th s
"living man of Europe," as one of the offi
cials called it, on April i. has been getting
busier every month. Thus the number or
monev orders on Russia has grown fro
1.887 in April to 4,120 in August, and the
total amount sent from this co^J}}Ty '>
Russia from $2T>,7*4.98 in April to $t>7..wO.W
In August. ?

Work on Charter Revision.
There has been.^lttle vacation for the
members of the charter commission this
summer, according to a statement of a
somewhat wearied Tevlser. It has been a
hot and busy summer for the revision com
mission. It appears from conversations
with several members of the . commission
that they are not altogether satisfied with
their work. They do not hesitate to ad
mit that the formation of a governmental
scheme for a city of the size of New York
Is no easy task, and they are especially
hampered by the comparatively brief time
allotted for the work. The law requires
that the new charter shall be submitted to
the governor by.December 1, which means
that the commission has only three months
in which to finish its work. Though a
great deal of progress has been made, noth
ing in the way of actual revision has been
done; no detail of the new charter, tt is
said, has yet beeen definitely determined
on; and the weighty problems of municipal
administration propounded to the commis
sion are yet unsolved.
Hunting Season Opens.
The hunting season was opened Saturday
and It will be lawful to kill deer in all but
four counties of this state until November
lfi. In the counties of I'lster, Greene, Sul
livan and Delaware there will be no open
season until 19051. Black and gray squirrels
may also be taken for the next three
months and a half, but It is still against
the law to kill wild moose, elk, caribou or
antelope. The season for feathered game is
also open, but there are many kinds of
birda which must not be kil'ed before Sep
tember 10. Duck hunters may begin their
sport at once, but the law Insists that they
fire their guns at arm's length and without
a stationary rest. Plover, surf birds and
water chicken will also be In season. Sev
eral hunting parlies have started from this
city for the Adirondacks, and many more
will follow. According to reports from the
mountains there are more deer than there
have been for years and not a few bears,
which may be shot on sight, as the game
laws afford bruin no protection.

ARE OVERCONFIDENT
Vice Chairman Payne Urges Greater
Activity.
THE DISFRAMCHISEKEKT QUESTION
Praises the Germans and Says They
Are Unwavering.
DAXG ERIX GENERAL APATHY
Special lUgpatch to The Evening Star.
CHICAGO. 111.. September 4.?Vice Ctwiir
man H. C. Payne of the republican nation
al committee has been In charge of the
western headquarters here from the begin
ning and is thoroughly familiar with the
outlook from close association with the
party leaders and the hundreds of people
that pour Into the headquarters dally. He
meets a flood of visitors every day and
deals with a bigger flood of correspondence
from all parts of the country.
Mr. Payne Is well satisfied and confident,
but earnestly urges greater activity on the
part of the rank and file of the party.
Inasmuch as the vice chairman is from
Milwaukee, where the German vote is very
large, and where the democratic leaders al
lege there exists republican disaffection, a
representative of The Star questioned Mr.
Payne today as to the accuracy of these
statements, and as to the general situation.
The Danger of OvereouHdenee.
"Apathy is our only danger," he answer
ed. "At one time it seemed as If the peo
ple would take the continuance of pros
perity as a matter of course, and so be in
danger of losing it. But within the last
week or so things are beginning to move in
a way that means something. The corre
spondence pouring in on the committee
from people all over the country means a
great deal. The American people are slow
to start sometimes, but they^seldom fail to
be ready for an emergency."
"What do you think of the new scheme
for the permanent disfranchisement of the
negroes in North Carolina and other south
ern states and what are the republicans
going to do about it?"
"Well," said Mr. Payne. "I think for one
thing they are going to make a protest that
will be heard. There are some differences
of opinion as to the legal scope and e'feet
of the remedy most talked of?reduction of
representation in Congress and the elec
toral college?but there Is another cure,
which has no drawbacks or complications.
Let the country serve notice on the democ
racy that systematic frauds and wrongs
against the ballot will only solidify the
north and bar the southern democrats f<-om
power in the nation. That is an effectual
remedy and the people have it in their own
hands."
The German Vote Secure.
"What about the Germans of Wisconsin?"
"I don't know anybody who values honest
money and prosperity moue than they do.
They know good things when they see them
and they know how to keep them."
"Are they affected by the Imperialist Is
sue?"
"I wish," said Mr. Payne, with a sugges
tive smile, "that you could ask a few of
them that question for yourself. One thing
you can safely say is that the German
American voter is not likely to be fooled
by any such campaign tricks or false cries
as imperialism. He knows what real im
perialism is?the arbitrary rule of the ex
ecutive through military power?and he
knows that is an impossibility in this coun
try, since appropriations for military pur
poses are limited by the Constitution to two
years and must be voted then from time to
time by the representatives of the people
in Congress.
"That alone disposes of the imperialist
bogy. Then, too, under our treaty guaran- j
tee with Spain, we have to remain in the
Philippines at least ten years. Bryan even
would have to do that if he respected j
treaty obligations; but according to his doc
trine he could not rightfully stay even rni"
year or force any kind of government on
the Filipinos, not even the most stable.
The Germans are inquiring into these i
things. Their distinguishing characteristic
Is coolheaded Judgment, and they are not
going off on a tangent over a false cry.
They see. too. that the 16 to 1 Issue is still
before the country; that Bryan, if elected
President, could, notwithstanding the gold
standard law. start a stiver chain in the
treasury, which of Itself would carry us
dangerously near to a silver basis. They
are not going to take any such risks. We
shall have our full share of the German
vote."
The People Mn?t Get Oat and Vote.
"How many northern states can Bryan
carry, giving him the benefit of all doubts?"
"He can't carry any, not even his own. If
the people turn out and vote. Public sen
timent is overwhelmingly for McKlnley, |
and we have nothing to faar but orercon
fldence. The feeling that It la all right i
and the loss of one vote will not make any
difference should not be entertained by the
voter, but I think the tide te turning and
the people are beginning to be aroused to
the real meaning of a presidential election
which In far-reaching Importance will be
second to none ever held in this country."
MIST AXSWER TO CHARGE.
Samuel Woodlnx Accused of Destroy
ing; Public Property.
Samuel G. Wooding, who lives at No. 1232
Linden street northeast, and is employed in
the government printing office. Us charged
In a warrant Issued from the Police Court J
today with destroying public property. Spe
cial Policeman Cook swore out the war
rant, alleging that Mr. Wooding injured
the shrubbery In the Zoological Park, by
breaking a branch from a tree.
The officers In charge of the park state
that It is not their intention to interfere
with visitors unnecessarily, but during re
cent months many trees have been Injured
in the manner stated, and they are obliged
to put a stop to the practice. The mana
gers are held responsible for the proper
care of the park and propose to prosecute
all offenders when properly identified.
PUBLIC NOT IX FORMED.
Communications Relative to Gsrbagr
StUI Go to Health Office.
Although the supervision of the collection
and disposal of garbage, dead animals,
ashes and other municipal waste and refuse
were transferred July 1 from the health de
partment to the street cleaning department
it Is said that more than a third of the mail
dally received by the health officer is com
posed of communications relative to such
matters.
Both the health officer and Mr. Warner
Stutler. the superintendent of the street
cleaning department, have taken unusual
pains to Inform the public of such transfer,
but a great majority of the people of the
District. It would appear, yet labor under
the Impression that the health department
still has charge of the work.
To Insure the prompt consideration of
communications relative to the collection
or non-collection of the waste and refuse
citizens should address them to the super
intendent of the street cleaning department,
for when received by the health officer
they are at once forwarded to that official,
the health officer not being authorised to
consider them. Greater promptness still
may be secured by a telephone message to
the street cleaning department.

INSPECTING THE SAMPLES
DKAUms IN IlLK A\D CREAM IX
DKft ISVES1TGATIOX.
??Hfc OOrr CfcnaMt at Work?His
?fport l?r Cmw Number
of Arrmt*.
The health department has under investi
gation samples of milk and cream collected
from a number of dealer*, and it is not
Improbable that prosecutions in several In
stances will result from the examination,
which is being made by Prof. J. D. Hlrd,
the District chemist. It is understood that
a number of dealers were found, from ex
aminations made by him several weeks
ago, to have violated the laws relative to
the sale of milk here, but that after it was
decided to institute criminal proceedings
against the alleged violators it was dis
covered that, through a misapprehension of
the particular law under which the prose
cutions were to be conducted, the samples
examined had not been retained. The law
requires that such samples shall be pre
served. and it was for this reason alone. It
Is stated, that the parties were not prose
cuted.
Since then, however, additional samples
of milk and cream have been collected from
a number of dealers, and these samples are
now being analyzed by Prof. Hlrd. What
the result of his analysts will be cannot, of
course, be now determined. The law pro
hibits the skimming of milk. Its adultera
tion. as well as the introduction into It or
cream of any ingredient Injurious to health
or detrimental to its purity. If the exami
nations now in progress show that the law
has been violated in such manner prosecu
tions will follow, it is stated.
What the Analysis Showed.
The analysis of the samples collected some
time ago showed, it is said, that in the
great majority of the cases the milk or
cream was tampered with or doctored by
local dealers; in not more than two in
stances, tt is understood, were parties ship
ping milk or cream to the city found to
have molested either. This is taken as evi
dence that, on the whole, milk or cream
shipped into the District met the require
ments of the law. In some cases formal
dehyde was found to have been introduced,
into milk examined to keep it sweet, and
it Is stated that in one ctuse this unlawful
matter preserved the sweetness of the milk
for more than a week, although the milk
was purposely exposed by Prof. Hlrd to
such influences as would ordinarily have
ruined it. This formaldehyde Is said to be
prepared from wood alcohol and is ordi
narily u*ed for disinfecting purposes, espe
cially in scarlet fever Infected premises.
Prof. Hlrd states that the preparation
pen es the purpose for which it is used in
milk, as It keeps It sweet under most try
ing circumstances a week or more, but It
it, nevertheless, highly injurious to the
health of those using milk so doctored,
and Is, of course, prohibited by law.
The work of the health department Is
being devoted at the present moment more
particularly to discover, if possible, by just
what person or persons the milk Is thus
tampered with, and It appears that it is as
a rule tampered with after it passes from
the outside shippers.
In one case, however, possibly one other.
It was found that the shipper was violating
the law in this particular. The Inspector
whose duty It is to collect samples of milk
is absent from the city on leave at pres
ent. and not until his return, it is stated,
will prosecutions be made should the sam
ples now under investigation be found to
show evidence of adulteration or other
misconduct of the dealers or shippers.
Owing to the limited force of the health
department. It is said, it is impossible to
keep the inspector constantly on such duty,
and It is only periodically that he Is so de
tailed.
AITOPSY ORDERED.
Death Said to Have Been Canard bj
Criminal Operation.
Deputy Coroner Olazebrook has been di
rected to perform an autopsy on the body
of Mrs. K. Rosenberg to determine if her

Mr. Rosenberg told a Star reporter this
afternoon that he had been married eleven
years and has six children Jiving. When he

said, he was informed of what had been
done, and he is determined to see that the
matter is fully investigated.

GENERAL MARKET REPORTS
8 peels 1 IMapatrb to The Ermine Star.
NEW YORK, September 4.?The London
stock market Saturday and Monday for
American securities showed only slight Ir
regular chan?ea over our* of last Friday.
Today's market at that center for our se
curities showed a somewhat hardening ten
dency in anticipation of support from New
York, ?rhfte Kaffirs and home rails were
firmer In expectation of the collapse of the
Transvaal war and the more favorable as
pect of the situation In China. Consols sold,
ex-interest, at an advance of M end 8-16:
discounts showed a tendency to easo.
The local stock market opened after the
three days' nollday with a selling move
ment directed against the issues which
showed weakness In late trading of last
week. Sugar, after an early spurt of V*.
suffered a decline of two points on renewed
selling in anticipation of the declaration
of only the regular dividend, in People's
Qas stock the selling was reported to have
come from good people, and was caused by
the severe reductions of prices mhde by the
new Chicago Oas Company.
The decline in the early dealings carried
the stock down H4. Brooklyn Rapid Tran
sit also suffered a decline of per cent
on what was called good selling. There
were gains in the railroad list and in those
of the steel and iron securities at the start,
but all of the improvements were not re
tained. Speculation was as professional as
ever. London bought about 10,000 shares
in the first half hour of business, but these
purchases did not influence the market
much.
Toward noon another attack was mads
on People's Gas stock, occasioned by a re
port from Chicago that the company had
cut the price of gas to 50 cents per 1,000
feet, that a further cut to 40 cents would
be made on Wednesday and to 25 cents
probably by the end of the week. ThU
report, with the accompanied selling of the
stock, carried the price down to 91 1-2. a
loss of 2 3-8 points from the highest of the
day.
Sugar, on the other hand, rallied sharpiy
to 121 ^ from 117S4. when the report caine
out that the directors of the company had
adjourned their meeting until 3:80 p.m. l?e
fore taking action on the dividends on the
preferred and common stocks. The spurt
in Sugar helped the general list somewhat,
though trading in the railway shares was
lather restricted.
American Steel and Wire stocks held
strong in the early trading and rallied
fractionally on the announcement that the
directors had declared the regular quarter
ly dividends of l\"r on the preferred and
common stocks.
Sugar stock at 1:45 p.m. was the domi
j nant feature of the market, the short cov
ering carrying the price of the stock to
122%. A report was then In circulation that
j the directors were again In session and the
, declaration of the dividends likely to occur
? at any moment.
! The covering in Sugar led some of the
[ nervous shorts to buy In some of their out
standing contracts elsewhere In the market,
causing a general, though only fractional,
rally.
Railroad bonds were quiet today. Gov
ernments unchanged.
