we feel safe In assuring the public that
he will recover. Blood poison might still
develop. We could not give a guarantee
now, but the chances are remote. As for
peritonitis. I consider that the danger from
inflammation of the peritoneum has
passed.
"Might not an abscess form about the
bullet?"
"Yes. of course; the bullet may not be
elf an, but if it does we can easily locate
and remove It."
"If the President continues to Improve
and his convalescence is not checked, how
soon will the secondary operation for the
extraction of the bullet be performed?"
"Never," replied the famous surgeon.
"That piece of lead encysted in the muscles
of his back will cause no harm. Of course,
If it gives him trouble an operation will be
performed."
"But you will use the X-ray to locate It?"
He shook his head. "Why should we?"
he asked. "To satisfy our curiosity? That
would be its only purpose."
The President Will Live.
MI I. BURN HOUSE, BUFFALO, Septem
ber 10.?The President will live, but will
probably carry the bullet of the would-be
assassin with him to the grave. This Is
the expressed opinion of Dr. Charles Mc
Burney of New York In a statement to a
representative of the Associated Press
after the consultation of the physicians
this morning. He announced that the
President had passed the danger point and
now only the possibility of complications
remained. He also announced that unless
the bullet embedded in the muscles of the
back caused trouble there would be no ne
cessity to extract It. In his opinion Jt
would not even be located with the X-ray.

GOLDMAN ARRESTED
Woman Whom Czolgosz Implicates iD
His Crime.
CAUGHT BY CHICAGO POLICE
She Calls the Assassin a Fool for
His Act
SAYS SHE IS AN ANARCHIST
{
CHICAGO, September 10.?Emma Gold
man, whose speeches are alleged to have
tired the brain of Leon Czolgosz, the would
be assassin of President McKinley, was ar
rested here shortly before noon today.
Miss Goldman's manner was defiant as
she was led Into the office of Chief of
Police O'Neill, but she disclaimed all knowl
edge of Czolgosz and his crime, admitting
only that she met him here July 12.
"Do you know that your words are what
I Czolgosz claims stirred him to shoot the
President?" she was asked.
"I do not: I never advocated vtojpnce. I
scarcely knew the man. I was leaving for
Rochester via Buffalo when Czolgosz had
a few words with me. He said he had
heard me lecture at some memorial hall In
Cleveland last May, and that he wanted to
know me. He said he knew I was In Chi
cago, and looked me up. I scarcely remem
ber anything about him, save that his com
plexion was light."
"Then how do you know that this man
is the one who tried to kill the President?"
r
3- ^ E>VAA
GOLDMAN
"Oh." with a shrug of the shoulders, "I
guessed that from what the newspapers
say."
??What did you think when you heard
that an attempt to kill the President had
been made?" the woman was asked. With
a wave of her hands and another shrug of
the shoulders she answered, disdainfully:
Called CioIkohi n Fool.
"I thought, Oh, the fool."
The prisoner's manner had been grow
ing more and more excited, although she
made an evident effort to control herself
and launched into a discourse of the teach
ings of anarchy.
She declared that anarchy did not teach ]
men to do the act which has made Czol- j
gosz despised and hated the world over.
"We work against the system, and edu
cation Is our watchword," she said.
"It was early last July when I came to
Chicago to visit the Isaaks family," she
continued In answer to Interrogations con
cerning her whereabouts recently. "On
the night of July 12 Isaaks was out of
the house. The bell rang and I went to the
door. The man. who I learn through the
newspapers was Czolgosz, stood there. He
said he wanted to see me.
"I was about to catch the Nickel Plate
train as I and Mr. Isaak's daughter were
about to go to Rochester. He went to the
Rock Island depot with us, but I was so
busy taking leave of my friends that I
scarcely noticed him. It was not a time
when one would want to make new friends.
At the depot I had the few words with him
of which I have told. That was ail there :
ever was between us."
Declare* She Is an Anarchist.
"I am an anarchist?a student of social- j
Lsm; but nothing in anything I ever said to
Leon Czolgosz knowingly would have led
him to do the act which startled everybody
Friday."
"Not even in your lectures? He says your
words set his brain on fire," asked the in
terviewer.
"Am I accountable because some crack
brained person put a wrong construction on
my words. Leon Czolgosz, I am convinced,
planned the deed unaided and entirely
alone. There is no anarchist ring which
would help him. There may be anarchists
who would murder, but there also are men
in every walk of life who sometimes feel
the impulse to kill.
"I do not know surely, but I think Czol
gosz was one of those dow n-trodden men
who see all the misery which the rich in
flict upon the poor; who think of it, who
brood over it. and then, in despair, resolve
to strike a great blow, as they think, for
the good of their fellow men. But that is
not anarchy. Czolgosz"?the woman pro
nounced the name with the greatest ease?
"Czolgosz may have been inspired by me;
but. if he was, he took the wrong way of
showing it."
Police officials are not entirely satisfied
with Goldman's story. When Captain
Schuettler and Detective Hertz discovered
her at the home of one Norris. at 303 Shef
field avenue, she denied her identity.
"Hello. Miss Goldman," said the captain,
as he entered the parlor. "Are you glad
to see me?"
Denied Her Identity.
"I'm not Miss Goldman; I'm a Swedish
woman, and my name is Lena Larson."
answered the woman, endeavoring to imi
tate the Swedish dialect.
"All right; I speak Swedish myself," said
the police officer, as he poured out a few
questions in the Norse tongue. Miss Gold
man did not answer, affecting to misunder
stand. Detective Hertz meanwhile had
been investigating, and had discovered a
pen with the name "Emma Goldman" en
graved thereon.
"What does this mean?" shouted Captain
Schuettler, holding the tell-tale article be
fore Its owner's eyes.
1 "It means that the game is up," she an
swered. She then admitted her identity
fully, and accompanied the police to the
office of Chief O'Neill.
IX ST. L.OLIS LAST WEEK.
Emma Goldman Held Several Confer
ences With Anarchists There.
ST. LOUIS, September 10.?It has* been
learned that Emma Goldman, the alleged
anarchist, held eight conferences last Fri
day and Saturday with St. Louis anarchists
in two saloons. The proprietor of one of
the places says she departed for Chicago
Saturday night, but may have left the
train before reaching that city.
One of the two letters which Miss Gold
man received at the St. Louis post office
Saturday was from New York. It con
tained a check from a wholesale house for
which Miss Goldman is traveling.
When Emma Goldman came Into the ren
dezvous Saturday morning it is stated she
was shown newspapers relating the circum
stances of the shooting at Buffalo and
stating that she was accused of being im
plicated. She laughed and said:
"Let's see them prove what they allege."
"1 have a notion to go straight to one
of the newspaper offices." she Is quoted as
saying, "or to the police and ask them
what they want of me. I may go to Buf
falo and brave It through there. Why,
what can they do? They can prove noth
lug."
TO AID JUDGE ADVOCATE
?*?'
E. P. HAHXA, BOMCITOR OF THE
JIAVY DEPARTMENT, DESIGNATED.
Will Participate In the Schley Court
of Inquiry?Commander Sharp
See* Captain Lemly.
At the special request of Captain Lemly.
judge advocate of the Schley court of in
quiry, Mr. Edwin P. Hanna, solicitor of the
Navy Department, has been detailed to
assist him in the conduct of the case of
the government in that investigation. Cap
tain Lemly has been perfectly willing all
along to discharge the duties of Judge advo
cate unaided, but some of the other offi
cials of the Navy Department. Including
Acting Secretary Hackett, have taken the
ground in view of the formidable array of
counsel retained In the interests of Admiral
Schley, that it was advisable that he
should have good legal assistance. The
original plan wan to have one of the as
sistant attorneys general detailed to that
duty, but Attorney General Knox opposed
that course on the ground that it might
give the impression that the government
was prosecuting an officer who had sim
ply asked that his official conduct be In
vestigated. The naval officials accordingly
abandoned the plan of asking for outside
assistance, and on the recommendation of
Captain Lemly assigned Mr. Hanna as his
assistant.
Mr. Hanna combines the qualities of a
good civil lawyer with a knowledge of
maritime and naval law so comprehensive
as to make him better fitted than any one
in the employ of the government to under
take a task of the magnitude of this now
placed upon him. He is an alumnus of
Michigan University, Ann Arbor, Mich., and
has spent the best part of his life in the
service of the government. He came to
Washington a young man and was private
secretarv in turn to Secretaries Teller and
Lamar of the Interior Department. He
studied law in Washington and took his
degree from Columbian University, being
the honor man of the class of 1883. After
graduation he went to Kansas and spent
some time there in the practice of civil
law. He returned to Washington about
ten years ago and became attached to the
office of the Judge advocate general of the
navy in the capacity of law clerk. In this
place he became perfectly acquainted with
the peculiarities of naval Jurisprudence,
and to his skill is owing the success which
has attended many of the government
court-martial proceedings and the security
with which the Navy Department has em
barked upon vast contracts attending the
reconstruction of the navy.
Mr. Hanna has been the principal re
liance of Captain Lemly, and has always
been called upon to discharge the official
duties of the Judge advocate general of
the navy in the absence of that official.
Particularly of late has he held that post,
and he was designated by the Secretary of
the Navy to act as judge advocate general
while Captain Lemly was engaged in the
Schley investigation. Now that Mr. Hanna
has been called upon to associate himself
actively with Captain Lemly in the in
quiry, the duties of Judge advocate gen
eral have been transferred, by special
designation, to Mr. Pickens Nagle, the
present chief clerk of the Judge advocate
general's office.
Commander Slinrp at the Department.
Lieut. Commander Alex. Sharp, who was
in command of the Vixen during the West
Indian campaign, and whose notes on the
battle of Santiago bay have been said to
conflict with those of Lieut. Harlow, was
at the Navy Department this morning, and
spent some time in conference with Judge
Advocate General Lemly.
Ensign George B. Rice, who was in
charge of the Brooklyn's after-turret dur
ing the battle of Santiago, was with Ad
miral Schley's counsel during the day, and
went over the line of testimony he will
present before the court.
Commander George W. Baird has pre
sented to Admiral Dewey, as president of
the court of inquiry, a handsome gavel
made from a piece of teakwood taken
from the captured Spanish cruiser Reina
Merccdes, and the admiral has accepted
the gift with thanks. It will be used dur
ing the sessions of the court.
Captain Francis A. Cook, who command
ed Admiral Schley's flagship, the Brook
lyn, during the Santiago campaign, and
Lieutenant Commander James H. Sears
were in close consultation with Admiral
Schley's counsel yesterday. It is under
stood that Captain Cook will be the first
witness to take the stand for Admiral
Schley.
Ensign Rice this afternoon will be exam
ined by Mr. Rayner and Captain Parker of
counsel for Admiral Schley. Ensign Rice
was summoned here from Manila; arrived
in San Francisco a week ago and at once
started across the country. He is one of
the witnesses called upon the suggestion of
Admiral Schley's counsel.
Mr. Jere Wilson went to New York last
evening and will return tonight.
PLAGIE'S RAVAGES IN CHINA.
Letter From Rev. Jacob Spclcher at
Kit Yang;.
The marine hospital service continues the
publication of letters from missionaries
and others in China describing the progress
of the plague. Rev. Jacob Spelcher, Bap
tist missionary, writing from K it Yang
says:
"The plague made its first appearance at
Swatow about seven years ago and has
since then spread in all directions along the
coast and inland. Three years ago the
large district city Chan Yang, ten miles
southwest of Swatow, had a very bad spell.
It Is said thait over 20,000 persons died In
that one city. Many villages between Can
ton and Li O, seventy miles inland from
Swatow, hove lost one-third to one-half of
their inhabitants. When the plague ap
peared in Kit Yang I suggested that the
roof of every plague house be taken off and
rebuilt after six months, but the officials
would not listen to such a measure. In
this benighted country nothing Is done, the
plague will have its run for years to come
and many over-populated districts may be
thinned out considerably. The printed
rules to prevent the plague from spreading
which were posted all over the city are
totally ignored. I have received word that
the district city of Hul Lai, about thirty
five miles south of Kit Yang, has had an
awful visitation this year. It is said that
only one-fourth of the people are still In
the city, one-half having moved to other
places for safety. This city was In the di
rect line of the "trail." Thus far I can
only find out that the plague has got inland
to the extent of seventy miles.
Personal Mention.
Mr. Chance, private secretary to the Sec
retary of War, has resumed his duties at
the War Department after a few weeks'
visit to relatives in Illinois.
Col. Ward, acting adjutant general, has
gone to Annapolis today to visit his eon,
Capt. Ward of the artillery.
Dr. J. Wesley Bovee has returned from
his summer home near the Thousand
Islands.
Detective George Boyd has returned to
his duties at police headquarters after a
vacation trip to New York and the north.
la Caaes of Desertion.
The army regulations have been amended
so as to provide that a board of survey
shall not be called when a soldier deserts,
except in cases in which it appears to the
proper commanding officer that articles of
public property have been lost in conse
quence of desertion. In those cases the
board will determine the money value of
the articles so lost, and the value will be
charged against the deserter on the next
muster rolls of his company.
Aetloa of Army and Wavy Union.
Gen. Wm. F. Barry Garrison, No. 136,
Regular and Volunteer Army and Navy
Union. Michael J. Hackett commander, has
adopted resolutions, which the adjutant haa
been ordered to forward to Mrs. McKlnley,
as follows: "That the officers and members
of Gen. Wm. F. Barry Garrison, No. 136,
in a body deeply deplore the cowardly act
whereby our beloved President lies wound
ed*. that we trust in the Almighty to spare
him to the people, whose love he has so
justly earned, and that the assurance of
our heartfelt sympathy be conveyed to
Mrs. McKlnley."
EXPRESS IDENTICAL VIEWS
?vi
LOCAL LAWYERS POSSIBLE P1JX
ISHHEKT br CZOLGOSZ.
- ?
Can Only Be Charged With First Dc
fwe AimhU With Intent to Kill
If President Recovers.
"??
Members of the bar of the District of
Columbia ceem to be unanimously of the
opinion that under the law the would-be
assassin of President MeKinley can bo
charged only with assault with intent to
kill, in the first degree, in the event the
President recovers. * The infliction of the
two wounds will naturally be merged Into
one offense, it Is held. .The possible charge
of carrying concealed weapons is consider
ed so insignificant Ui comparison with the
assault charge as to Qgn unnoticed.
Mr. D. W. Baker; formerly assistant
United States attorney for the District of
Columbia, and one of the most prominent
of the younger members of the bar. In con
versation with a Star reporter today rela
tive to the legal aspect of the Buffalo af
fair, said:
"In looking at the almost fatal attack
upon the President of the United States
one is astonished at the defect in the law
punishing such crimes. The defect exists
not only In the statutory law, but it ap
pears In the Constitution of the United
States itself. The crime Is not treason,
even if the result Bad- been fatal, but a
mere local crime against the state of New
York. As it is, the criminal can only be
tried in that state for the assault?an as
sault with a deadly weapon being an as
sault with Intent to kill in the first de
gree?and punished by an Imprisonment not
to exceed ten years. Of course, the crimi
nal Is also guilty of carrying concealed
weapons, but that offense is minor to the
other, and if not merged is very seldom
ever charged where a felony is also com
mitted.
Treason an Defined in Constitution.
"The Constitution of the United States de
fines treason as follows: *
" 'Treason against the United States con
sists only In levying war against them
or in adhering to their enemies, giving
them aid and comfort,' and it would be
utterly Impossible for Congress to pass a
statute making an offense treason that was
not involved in the above definition. The
meaning of this definition has been well
defined by the several federal courts and
cannot be extended to Include mere pri
vate conspiracies against the life of a gov
ernment official. Treason in the English
speaking world is, at the present time, a
statutory crime, and is never extended be
yond the strict terms of the statute; and
while the teaching of the doctrine of an
archy Is a trime. It could not be extended
at the present time to be an offense against
federal statutes, although such teaching
may have led to a crime exactly like the
one committed.
Action Imperatively Xecessary.
Anciently it was an offense to Imagine
the death of the king, the law holding that
where a person Imagined such a thing he
must have thought, of committing the
crime; and while this barbarous law has
been long since abolished, still there la no
doubt that teachings and speeches that at
tack the foundations of government do lead
to crimes against the officers of the gov
ernment. They have thplr effect on weak
minded people as well as upon criminals,
and some action should be taken either by
the several states or the federal govern
ment to punish such persons.
When the conviction of the murderer of
President Garfield was Upheld by the court
upon what a great many lawyers believed
to be a too liberal construction of an Eng
lish statute one would think that some
action should have been taken then, but
It is now high time for the federal govern
ment to act and protect Its public officers.
District Attorney Gonld nnd Others.
Mr. Ashley M. Gould, United States at
torney for the District of Columbia, says
that the shooting cannot possibly be con
strued as treason. Under the law it is sim
ply a case of assault in the first degree if
the President survives, and is punishable
by imprisonment for from five to ten years.
In the opinion of Unitod States Attorney
Gould but the one offense will be charged.
The matter of carrying concealed weapons
will not be considered.
Mr. Arthur A. Birney, formerly United
States attorney for the District of Colum
bia, agrees with Mr. Baker and Mr. Gould
as to the legal nature of the case.
A number of other well-known Washing
ton lawyers were seen by the reporter and
their views all agree, in the direction set
forth in the foregoing.
Protests Against a Stable.
James Corridon, on behalf of his sister,
Johanna L. Corridon, who owns the prem
ises at 921 I street northwest, has written
to the District Commissioners protesting
against the stable which it is alleged main
tained by Edward Fitzgerald at 910 I
street. Mr. Corridon says his sister Is quite
ill and is not expected to live. He says her
livelihood is dependent upon the renting
out of rooms in her house and that all the
tenants are leaving because of the stable.
Bid Accepted.
The District Commissioners have decided
to accept the bid of G. B. Mullin for Im
proving Connecticut avenue west of Rock
creek. Mr. Mullin was the lowest bidder
for the work at $10,301.
Mr. Macfarland's Confidence.
The following telegram was received at
the District building this afternoon from
Commissioner Macfarland, who is still In
Buffalo:
"I believe the President's convalescence
has practically begun and will steadily con
tinue. This is the fact behind the con
servative bulletins."
Naval Orders.
Lieutenant Commander W. P. Walte has
been ordered to assume the duties of ad

Chaplains Must Know Mathematics.
The War Department has decided that a
knowledge of matfyamt^lca Is an essential
qualification for ang army chaplain. A can
didate for an appointment as chaplain was
recently rejected HfccaAfce of his failure to
meet the mathematical requirements. Onfe
of the grounds of'the .decision of the de
partment Is that i??s frequently necessary

REVENUES IN PORTO RICO
GREAT INCREASE CXDEfc SEW TAX
LAW.
receipt* Were Over $100,000 in Au
gust?Statement of <V. R. Garrison,
Auditor of the Island.
Mr. J. R. Garrison, the auditor of Porto
Rico, today stated to a Star reporter that
information received by him from Mr.
Rockwell, deputy auditor of the island, who
is acting in Mr. Garrison's absence, shows
that the collection of revenues under the
tax law of January 31, 1901, passed at the
last session of the legislative assembly, is
highly satisfactory, exceeding In amount
what was anticipated. For the month af
ter the hurricane of August, 1809, the In
ternal revenue receipts, under the old tax
law, were less than $12,000, and during
the period of the military government the
receipts from this source did not exceed
$25,000 In any one month. For the month
of June, 1901, the internal revenue receipts
exceeded $90,000. For July they were more
than $100,000, and a better showing still is
made for the month of August. At the
close of business on August 31 the balance
of current available Insular revenues,
over and above the expenditures, was $184,
685.96, being an increase during August In
the balance of current Insular revenues in
excess of expenditures of $80,798.27.
The balance of trust funds in the In
sular treasury on August 31 was $1,125,
327.33, an increase over the balance for
July of $633,170.01. "These figures, in my
judgment," said Mr. Garrison, "speak most
favorably for the financial condition and
consequent prosperiay of Porto Rico.
"The Island in common with the United
States has been shadowed with gloom and
profound sorrow at the sad calamity which
has befallen the nation in the dastardly
attempt upon the life of its beloved chief
magistrate, whom the people of Porto Rico
Justly regard as their best friend. The
cheering news indicating the certain re
covery of President McKlnley will be hailed
with unfeigned joy In Porto Rico."
JIBILATIOH OF CABINET OFFICERS
Mr. Brigham Deterlbe* How a Bulletin
Cheered Them.
J. H. Brigham, assistant secretary of ag
riculture, returned to Washington from
Buffalo today. Mr. Brigham said to a Star
reporter this afternoon tha?t the last thing
he did before leaving Buffalo was to call at
the Milburn house. While he was there the
doctors In attendance on the President Is
sued a bulletin which was most favorable.
In the house at the time were Secretaries
Root, Gage, Hltchoock and Wilson.
"They were simply jubilant," continued
Mr. Brigham. "All believed the President
would get well, and they felt so good over
it they did not know how to express them
selves."
Mr. Brigham was not at the reception
when the President was shot. He had been
with him all the day before, and said he
was completely worn out. At the reception
in the government building on this occa
sion Mr. Brigham had introduced the Pres
ided to those In line, and In doing so he
said he had taken each one by the hand.
However, he had done this more to hurry
them up than as a safeguard against as
sassins.
"Every man ought to show both hands
when he approaches the President." em
phatically declared Mr. Brigham, "and I
think there should be some one present to
shake the hand of every one before he
reaches the President at every reception."
In commenting on the President's move
ments the day before Mr. Brigham said
that it took an exceedingly rapid stride to
keep up with him. The things the Presi
dent evinced the most interest in were the
Philippine exhibit and the display of fire
works on the evening before the tragedy.
At this display he had clapped his hands
and waved his handkerchief.
AWN A SMITH CONVICTED.
Another Chesapeake Junction Habitne
Fined $25 in Police Court.
Anna Smith, one of the women arrested
recently at 15th and H streets northeast
on the charge of vagrancy, and who is said
to be known as one of the former habitues
of some of the Chesapeake Junction re
sorts, was arraigned this afternoon in the
Police Court before Judge Mills. The de
fense was represented by Messrs. Sillers
and Ryan and Mr. A. Leftwlch Sinclair
looked after the interests of the prosecu
tion.
Officers Russell and Ricketts and Special
Officer Dlgney had testified up to the hour
of recess, but their evidence did not vary
In any "Important particular from that
given in the case of Madge Davis, who
was convicted of a similar offense in the
same court last week.
The defendant, when called to the stand,
denied all the accusations. She said she
had been married twice; her first husband's
name was Jones and the second Sjnith. The
latter left her last' spring and went to
Philadelphia. She does not know where he
is at this time.
She was asked if she did not have a child
who is known as Perry Rowe. She said
she had a child to which she had given
that name, because she did not want him
to take his father's name, which is Jones.
She was asked if she had not given birth
to a child within the last six months.
She did not answer. She declared she
did not know the taste of whisky. She de
nied that she had been at Graceland ceme
tery between 2 and 3 o'clock one morn
ing. She declared that the witnesses
against her had sworn to lies.
Mr. John W. Douglass, agent of the board
of children's guardians, said the defendant
got the board to take charge of her small
boy; she gave his name as Perry Rowe,
and said at that time her name was Lillian
Rowe.
This closed the evidence on both sides.
Mr. Sinclair offered to submit the case
without argument, but counsel for defense
would not agree, and at 2:40 p.m. Mr. Ryan
began his argument.
At the conclusion of the counsel's argu
ment Judge Mills reviewed the testimony
and fined the woman $25, with the alterna
tive of sixty days in jail In cause of de
fault. ?

GENERAL MARKET REPORTS
Special Dispatch to The Evening Star.
NEW YORK, September 10.?The stock
market opened strong and generally above
the closing level of last night. The foreign
markets all reflected confidence In Ameri
can securities, but the demand fell off
slightly.
The news of the President's progress
was all encouraging, and the financial
community was decidedly^ cheerful In con
sequence. The Influence of the bulletins
from the bedside of the distinguished pa
tient was decidedly helpful to prices, but
routine developments were also encourag
ing.
The announcement that the treasury had
Invited offerings of government bonds
helped to restore confidence in the money
market. The first effect of the announce
ment was to attract an Increased buying
demand to such stocks as have recently
been leaders in the market. Round
amounts of St. Paul, Southern Pacific.
Union Pacific and the Erie issues changed
hands at advancing prices. All of the Is
sues named responded easily to the new
demand and gave no evidence of concern
on any of the doubtful points of the situa
tion.
The hope that the government crop re
port, to be issued later in the day, would
show some signs of improvement since the
August report encouraged a better demand
for the western railway shares. All of the
reports of earnings Issued during the day
showed gains over the same period last
year, and these exhibits were factors of no
little significance.
The money market was sustained around
4 and 5 per cent, but there was no evidence
of any hesitancy to make loans and buyers
were not restricted In their movements by
fears of a money flurry. There were sev
eral periods of profit-taking during the day,
but the market took all such sales willing
ly and rallied to higher prices after each
set-back. The trading during the first hour
was positively buoyant and the market
seemed to be in full upward swing.
While prices advanced readily, and while
assurances were given that the underlying
condition fully warranted the movement,
commission houses were not wholly in Sym
pathy with the movement. Wall street has
no precedent for such a market, and the
novelty of the advance has deterred many
outside operators from joining the move
ment.
Orders to buy at limits under the market
have been numerous and now there is a
fear that prices will get away without ma
terial reaction. The desire to go with the
tide is on the increase and the market may
yet work into an advance solely upon the
assurances that things are all favorable.
The leading bankers are doing all that can
possibly be done to encourage confidence,
and these efforts are decidedly successful.
Toward the close of last week the mar
ket, outside of a few specialties, seemed to
be in a halting mood. Since that time an
attempt has been made on the life of the
chief executive, and the bank reserves are
$20,000,000 smaller than they were one
year ago, but the market has become
strong and active. The reason is clear.
The strongest men in the world of finance
are in control of the situation, and are
actual owners of a bulk of the stocks.
The panic of the small man, the margin
operator and the gambler does not spread
into such circles. The spectacle is unusual,
but it exists, and fighting the wishes of
such interests has thus far been expen
sive.
Rumors from Pittsburg that the steel
strike had been settled helped to advance
prices during the closing hour.

THE PAPERHANGERS' STRIKE
PARTIES STILL MKET CLAIMS WITH
COUNTER-CLAIM 9.
Employer! Say They are Satlnfledt
and Men Declare They are Content
ed? Sew ? From Both Cam pa.
With the assurances from several
sources of outside help the master paper
hangers say they feel confident of breaking
the backbone of the strike by Thursday;
morning at the latest. This feeling is par
ticipated in apparently by all members of
that organisation. Although the situation
is not at all to their liking, still the boast
of the strikers that several large con- j
tracts had been let to outside firms, oP
rather to firms not affiliated with the mas
ters' association, has been met with a
most decided denial on the part of employ*
ers. The work at all the shops is progress
ing, so it is stated, but, of course, with di
minished forces. The number has been
Increased during the past few days by men i
Imported from out-of-town. Nearly fifty, i
men were expected last night or this morn- j
ing, but how many camp would not be given
out by the masters. Some men did arriver ,
however, and were put to work this morn
ing.
A member of the association declares that
he overheard a conversation between sev
eral of the striking men and the imported
workmen. The strikers promised, so It is
reported, that if the latter would come ove?
to their side the wages asked for by tha
union, namely, $3.20 per day, would be paid
them regularly. This, so it is said, did not
prove successful, and the men proceeded to
their destinations. The masters hint that
the strikers have used Intimidation pro
ceedings In several instances, claiming that
the latter have gone so far as to declare
that if the men went to work they would
soon be compelled to leave the city.
The answers to the advertisements of the
master paperhangers are arriving steadily.
One of the proprietors of a large establish
ment stated that the malls yesterday morn
ing and today each contained thirteen re
plies. , i
Men Say They are Contented.
A feeling of contentment pervades tho
union ranks, and the men say that they
have no reason for making complaint. They
are still determined; if anything, more so
than at the first outbreak of the strike.
They declare they are in receipt of encour
aging news from a good many points which
have been visited by the representatives of
the masters' association.
A large number of the men now striking
are given employment through the union
having contracts on Its hands. By this
means they claim that very few of them
are compelled to be idle. Most of the im
ported men, they claim, are members of
the brotherhood, and when they arrive in
this city .almost immediately go over to the
side of the strikers when they learn the
state of affairs. Another encouraging bit
of news to the strikers was recently re
ceived. In one of the southern cities where
the masters advertised for help they claim
to have received advice as to the amount
of wages paid for paperhangers.
In comparing the rate of that city with
the amount asked for by the strikers there
Is still a margin In favor of the former
place. Not only this but they are advised,
So it is said, that employment will be given
to.as many men as can come to that point.
They gather from this that but little suc
cess will be met at that place by the mas
ters.
Believe Masters Will Yield.
The feeling that the strike will soon bo
terminated by the masters giving in to
their demands is general among the strlk- "
ers. The reason for this Is that of many
recent arrivals here quite a lot have gone
over to the side of the union. Again, they
state that the work piling up on the shops
In the city will cause the masters to ac
quiesce in the demands of the men.
It is said by the union men that a goodly
number of those who come to this city and
remain with the masters are not the most
skilled workmen, and that In several in
stances the work of these men has been
condemned by the patrons and better work,
men have had to go in and complete the
job.
It is said that the representatives of the
union in the cities where the masters have
gone foramen have met with the most en
couraging- success by both the brotherhood
and the bosses.

SAN FRANCISCO, Cal., September 10.?

Santa Fe shops here quit work because tho
