Tall, Handsome Blonde Tries
Suicide at Esquimalt
LOVED FAITHLESS LIEUT. BROWN

Portland's Effort to Shake off Political

—Dedication of Tacoms Armory—A
G. A. R. Post Levied 08.
VICTORIA, B. C., June 4L— The little
naval village of Esquimalt enjoyed the
first sensation it has experienced in years
this morning. A tall and handsome
blonde, who has been known here as Mrs.
Goff, of San Francisco, is the heroine, and
Lieutenant Brown, of the United States
steamer Pinta, is the hero. The Pinta
sailed from Esquimalt rather earlier in the
morning than had been expected, and a
few minutes after her departure Mrs. Goff
appeared at the naval wharf in a
state bordering on hysterics. She
asked if the cutter had sailed,
and receiving an affirmative reply gave a
sob and threw herself from the pier. Two
boatmen hastened to the rescue but
their assistance was declined, even after
the would-be suicide bad made two trips
to the bottom. As she came up the third
time she caught wildly at a rope and was
drawn ashore, where no time was lost in
restoring her to consciousness. Who she
really is is a matter of dispute.
Her friends volunteer the scant informa
tion that she is the wife of a prominent
San Francisco business man, whom she
deserted several weeks ago to join Lieu
tenant Brown. On the Pinta's arrival
here they met and were inseper
able for the first few days. Then
came a quarrel succeeded by
others. The last of these took place last
night. The lovers parted in anger. She
thought he would return to make up, but
he did not. Then she went to him, but
too late. Her leap to death was the re
sult. What she proposes to do next is not
known. Her husband is on the way to
take her home.
THB FIGHT AGAINST PULLMAN,
Colfax Said to Be Instigating the Agrl
cultural College Litigation.
Moscow, Idaho, June 4.—[Special.]—A
new development haa been unearthed in
relation to the agricultural college muddle,
wherein the origin of the injunction suit
now pending is brought to light. Five
prominent citizens of Colfax are impli
cated. They are responsible for the fight
being made on Pullman, but hare denied
all along that they had any connection
with the suit. Copies of two dispatches
have just come into possession of a gentle
man who is aiding Pullman. Both were
sent from Colfax May 5, and signed W. W.
Waite, H. 8. Hollingsworth, Harry Corn
wall, C. H. Warner and W. J. Hamilton.
One of them is addressed to Crowley &
Sullivan, attorneys, Tacom* and reads;
"Se* that injunction is pressed immedi
ately. Confer with Reavis. Use wire
freely if necessary." The second is sent
to J. B. Reavis, of Yakima, and gives these
instructions: "Press injunction without
delay. Have retained Crowley & Sullivan
to assist you."
The people of Pullman are indignant, aa
Colfax has pretended to be satisfied with
the results, but now the blame is located.
TACOMA, June 4. —[Special.]—Argument
in the mandamus proceedings against the
location of the state agricultural college
at Pullman was begun today before Judge
Campbell, of the Buperior court. Frank
H. Graves, of Spokane, represented State
Auditor T. M. Reed, who is cited as de
fendant in the action. W. L. Jones, of
North Yakima, the plaintiff, was repre
sented by Representative H. J. Snive'y, of
North Yakima, and Crowley A Sullivan,
of Tacoma. Mr. Graves tiled a motion to
dissolve the temporary restraining order,
alleging that the county was without
jurisdiction, and that if any proceedings
should prevail they should be in the nature
of quo warranto and not by mandamus.
Arguments ou both sides promise to be
exceedingly lengthy.

An event among local Odd Fellows this
week waa the presentation of a magnificent
official regalia to J. H. Graham. The re

Fellowship on the harbor and devoted so
much time and labor to the welfare of the
order, that it was a fitting acknowledg
ment of the members' appreciation to do
something more than load him with
offices, so the regalia was bought by con
tributions of members of the Rebekah de
pee, subordinate lodge and encampment,
in all of which Mr. Graham has "gradu
ated" from the lowest office up. The re
galia bears the insignia of "past offices"
and is said to be the finest in the state.
The ladies of the Rebekah lodge provided
a banquet to do honor to the presentation.
Portland Municipal Politics.
PORTLAND, June 4. [Special.] At a
meeting of the Tammany Society, held
this morning, a resolution was passed that
the city Democratic committee should
make no nominations for the coming elec
tions until it is seen what the citizens'
committee will do in the way of giving the
party representation on a fusion ticket. It
is known for a certainty that no one can
be elected on a straight Democratic ticket,
and the only way the party can get repre
sentation is to join hands with the consoli
dation movemenL The Republicans are
of the opinion that the move to put up a
straight Democratic ticket is inspired by
Jim Lotan for the purpose of weakening
the consolidationists and reinstating his
clique on a straight Republican ticket.
Interstate Commission Leaves Portland.
POHT&AKD, June 4.—lnterstate Commerce
Commissioners Morrison, Bragg, Knapp
and Veazey opened a court of inquiry here
today. The meeting was a continuation
of the one held at Spokane. The railroad
companies claim that owing to water com
petition they are compelled to make a
lower rate for Portland and Puget sound
than for Spokaue. Several wholesale
merchants were examined. The burden
of testimony was that freight by water ia
increasing, and that it will still further in
crease if the railroad rates are raised any
higher. The investigation was concluded
this evening, and Commissioner Morrison
left for the Esst, and Commissioners Bragg,
Knapp and Veazey left for San Francisco.

TRADE WITH CANADA.
Sir Charles Tapper Describes
Interviews With Blaine.
RECIPROCITY OUTLOOK GOOD.
Negotiations Postponed Till October
Owing to President's Tour.
Tapper Boasts of Large Number of
Canadians in the Union Army, and
Blaine Polnta to tho Bounty Induce
ment—Sir John Macdonald Still Lives.
OTTAWA, June 4. —The first installment
of papers dealing with the Washing
ton City reciprocity negotiations
have been laid before the Do
minion parliament. When Newfoundland
negotiated its treaty Sir Julian Paunce
fote cabled to the colonial office that Cana
dian opinion should be invited. Simul
taneously Sir John Macdonald communi
cated with Sir Charles Tupper, urging him
to enter an objection on the ground that
it would be injurious to Canada, and would
violate the imperial policy in considering
the Atlantic fisheries as a whole. Letters
which indicate the attitude of Mr. Blaine
toward Canada's proposal are missing.
For the publication of these permission
has not yet been obtained.
One interesting communcation, dated
January 23, is from Lord Knutsford, col
onial secretary. He says that the New
foundland ministers are willing to nego
tiate for arrangements with Canada on a
basis similar to the United States, and her
majesty's government strongly hopes that
the Dominion will, on this understanding,
withdraw its applicatisn. The reply to
this is not given.
The most important communications
are the reports of Sir Charles Tupper of
interviews with Mr. Blaine. Tupper gives
the details of the first talk with Blaine in
company with Pauncefote, and says:
I told Mr. Blaine I wished at the outset to
recognize the accuracy ol the statement con
tained in his letter to Pauncefote, which I had
seen, in reference to the invitation to open
negotiations regarding reciprocal trade arrange
ments between the two countries, in that I
believed it arose from the negotiations which
had recently taken place between the United
State* and Newfoundland; that a desire was
expressed by Canada to b« included in any
arrangements such as had been understood to
have been oontemplatcd by the United
States and Newfoundland, and that upon
that being communicated to him
by Pauncefote he had expressed his
willingness to open negotiations tor reciprocity
trade arrangements between Canada and the
United States, assisted by delegates from the
Dominion government, the negotiations to be
informal and to a certain extent of a confidential
nature until they could awume a more formal
character if any result were arrived at Blaine
■aid he understood that Canada had taken ex
ception to the proposed arrangements with the
United States by Newfoundland. I admitted
that such was the case, and explained that the
interests of Canada and Newfoundland had
always been regarded as inseparable.
I told Mr. Blaine I wished to remove the idea,
if he entertained it, which had been promul
gated In Canada and the United States, tiiat the
present government of the Dominion was not
warmly in favor of the thost friendly relations
with tho United States. In an article which I
recently sent over my own signature to the
North American Review, I had undertaken to give
conclusive evidence upon that point, and I
needed further only to refer him to the fact that
when Sir John Macdonald, who was one of her
majesty's high commissioners, submitted to
parliament for approval the Alabama treaty,
which settled all then pending questions
between Canada and the United States,
he was fiercely denounced by the leaders and
press of the Liberal party for having basely
sacrificed the interests of Canada in his en
deavors to promote friendly relations between
Canada and the United States. I added that I
had experienced the same treatment from the
same party when I submitted for the approval of
parliament the treaty of Washington City of
1888. Of course, in 1866, and subsequently in
1885, when the treaties which gave United
States fishermen common right* with ours were
abrogated, in consequence of the action of the
United States, we were thrown back
on the treaty of 1818; but state
ments that Canada then resorted to a sharp
construction of that treaty with the object of
promoting freer trade relations with the United
States, were erroneous. We were compelled, in
justice to the rights of our own fishermen, who
were met with high duties in the United States
market, to protect them. Mr. Blaine desired to
assure me that outside of individual differences
of opinion there was no interest taken by the
members of the congress of the United States in
the recent Canadian election, and they had
taken no active part to Influence the result of
the election. Continuing, 1 said Canada was
most anxioua to have the freest and most
friendly relations with the United States, con
sistent with the interest of both countries. Mr.
Blame said be was free to admit that the
treaty of 1854 was not abrogated on commercial
grounds, but In consequence of a feeling that
Canada sympathized with tha Southern states
in their conflict I replied that it was difficult
to see upon what basis that opinion could be
entertained; that It waa admitted that no less
than 40JDOO Canadians fought in the
Northern army to maintain the Union, while I
did not suppose forty were on the other side.
Mr. Blaine supposed that the very large
bounty bad a great deal of influence in
the matter. I then said that tho unhappy
conflict had taken place previona to confedera
tion, but I could speak with some accuracy of
the province of Nova Scotia, with which I waa
then connected; that the legislature of Nova
Scotia passed a resolution deploring the war,
and one of tha sharpest of international quee
tlona arose, as be would remember, in connec
tion with the Chesapeake incident in the harbor
of Halifax. Sir John Macdonald and party had
the strongest desire to promote reciprocal trade
between the two countries, and their hopes
in that direction were greatly strengthened by
the decided measures which Mr. Blaine
had taken to promote reciprocal trade
with other countries, and I could not see why
he could not with gieat advantage to the United
States, as well as Canada, extend to the north
the tame policy he pursued with countries in
the south, as trade was very much smaller with
them than that between the Dominion and tha
United States. I said the fact that he had ex
pressed his readintas to recaiva the representa
tions that Canada wi»bed to make would show
that he waa quite open to consider that .ques
tion. I waa further strengthened in my
I added, by tne disposition he had shown to make
reciprocal arrangements with the colony of New
foundland. Borne question then arose between
Sir Julian and Mr. Blaine aa to the Bond nego
tiations. Sir Julian explained that Bond had
no authority to negotiate in any other way than
through him. Blaine said that it did not appear
necessary to negotiate any treaty with New
foundland, aa that colony had expres»ed ita
readiness to give to the United States privileges
they enjoyed by their own action, and they pro
posed not only to give bat to United States fish
ermen. but to refuae to give tha same privilege
to Canada. I told Mr. Blaine that the bait act
in Newfoundland had received the assent of her
majesty upon the distinct pledge that Canadian
vessels wonid not be affected by it Her ma
jesty had the power to disallow any bill that
might be passed upon the subject by the colony.
Upou the conclusion of the interview I thanked
Mr. Blaine very much for his courtesy.
Following this is Sir Charles Turper's
report with regard to his doings at \\ asb
ington City when accompanied by Sir
John Thompson and Mr. Foster. It ap
pears that Sir Julian's telegram about
Blaine's deaire to postpone the conference
did not reach Six Charles in time, and he
had no intimation of it until the delegates
reached Washington City. Mr. Blaine,
meeting them, expressed great regret at
their failure to receive his message. He
said the president was an*ious to be in
v\ ashington City during the negotia
tions, and requested that they
be deferred until a later day, as
he had made arrangements, which could
not be changed, for an immediate visit to
the est, and Mr. Blaine also mentioned
that the president said that as there would
be no meeting of the Senate before Decem
ber no inconvenience, be trusted, would
arise from the postponement. The date
was later fixed for October 12 next. In
conclusion Sir Charles says:
I may add, after carefully thinking over mil
that has occurred, that I consider than is
Rood reaaon to hope that fair arrange menu ma y
be made with the government of the United
states in relation to the important questions
contained in Lord Stanley's dispatch to Lord
KnuUford of December IS, 1890.

imagine America to be a sort of African Congo,
without autonomy, and incapable of life with
out the constant application of European gal
vanic butteries. Catholics are mortified that
their religion is msde the occasion and pretense
of this insolent foreign intermeddling. It is
■trange news. Indeed, for American ears to hear,
that ths Austrian and Prussian ambassadors in
Rome hare been instructed by their home gov
ernment to bring to bear upon Americans their
influence in aid of Uerr Caheusly's plan of
campaign.
The contagion spreads to an extent that com
pels a smile of amusement in the midst of onr
anger. We find M. Mercier, the premier of the
province of Quebec, a colouy of England, run
ning to the Vatican aDd praying in the name of
hia little constituency that a Canadian bishop
be named for the see oi Ogdensburg, in the atato
of New York. We can easily picture the further
extension of tbis foreign ambition to rule
Catholic affaire in America, and in
a few years the ecclesiastical map of
the country would ahow the fingerings of
every foreign principality whose emigrants
choose to touch our shore*. This attack of for
eiguism upon the church in America, however,
ii killed from its own audacity, bo long aa it
worked stealthily, by secret embassies and back
door entrances, it was dangerous and was doing
harm. But it has now entered into open com
bat, and the outcome will be most favorable
to the church and the country. I
have seen an official denial of a repre
sentative of the Deutsche Amerikamiecher
Prieater Verein, or German clerical society
of America, diaclaimlng all knowledge of the
Cahensiy memorial. What he will not deny is
that the Cahenaly memorial is nearly word for
word the document which a German prleat of
St. Louis, one of the founders of the verein,
sent to Rome in 1886, nor will he deny that m
lew daya ago Ammia, a paper which is fed ou
verein food, declared openly that it will incee
santly work for Cahently's programme. What
ever of the letter, the spirit of the Cahensiy
movement thrivea in the halls of the verein and

SECRETARY FOSTER IX NEW YORK.
Ability to Refund 4 1-3 Bonds at 3 Par
Cant. Shows Oar Good Credit.
NEW YORK, Jane 4. —ln company with
Murat Halstead, Secretary Foster this
evening visited the Union League Club.
At a subsequent reception he spoke in an
informal way. He said, in part:
OAR Democratic friend* have had a good deal
to say of late about the billion dollar congress.
Every move we make our Democratic friends
seem to think indicates poverty of the treasury
department Recently I thought it wise
to propose an extension of 4% per
cent, bonds. The treasury department is
abundantly able to pay these bonds when
they mature. In view of the fact that 150.000,*
000 in gold has been exported within a short
period of time, I deem it unwise to
do anything Just now to decrease
the volume of currency in the national
banks. My prediction today is that these bonds
may be extended, and at the rate of 2 per cent.
The interest will bear a premium, a condition

NEW YORK, June 4. —Secretary of the
Treasury Foster held a conference today
with a number of the leading bankers and
brokers of this city with regard to the 4}{
per cent, bonds to be redeemed by the gov
ernment on September 1. The result of
the discussion was the adoption of a reso
lution expressing the opinion that in view
of the necessity for an increase of cir
culation for the movement of the abund
ant crops, it is to the interest of the coun
try at large to extend the maturing 4}£ per
cent, bonds at the rate of 2 per cent., pay
able at the pleasure of the government,
and that a lower rate of interest would
tend to contract the currency.
WASHINGTON CITT, June 4.— The secret
