[ TO SAVE HIS RIGHTS.
Owner of the James 6. Swan Files a Bill of Exceptions. ACTION BY A CIVIL ENGINEER. ■e Wants Damages Beeanse He Was sot Allowed to Plat a Townslte— Breach of Promise Salt. A bill of exceptions was filed yesterday I in the United State? court by Chatoqua f Tcterson, owner of the James G. Swan, to : the ruling of Judge Hanford in granting a . decree of condemnation and forfeiture against the vessel for taking seal in i Alaskan waters. The bill sets out that I the claimant, Peterson, excepts to the j ranng because in his pleadings he alleged ; that Bering sea is an open sea and that i there is no law of congress declaring it to fbe mart? clnumm. The vessel was at a f distance of more than seventy miles from the nearest land when seized by the revenue cutter Richard Rush, which fact was admitted by the government. The bill admits that for political reasons gn order to exclude all vessels from Bering tea may be mvle by the president, yet in equity and justice and by the long-estab lished law of nations there was no tres passing. The sealer was not working within one marine league of the Alaska coast or of any island belonging to the United States. The claimant has made no appeal from the ruling because he has no means to prosecute such an appeal. He bos, however, paid in the full amount of the forfeiture, which is |350 with $18.40 for costs, and prays for a full release of the schooner from all demands of the United / 6'ates. f It is asked that the bill of exceptions be filed and entered of record, so. that in the event that Bering sea be decided by the international board of arbitration to be an open sea all of the claimant's rights may be awarded him.

An action was begun yesterday in the ioperior court by Richard Nevins, jr., .*K»inst Henry Hewitt, jr., president of lhe Everett Land Company, to recover $11,789.50 for an alleged breach of contract •mi for labor performed.

He was also to have his Dime alone appear on town maps as en gineer and surveyor. He claims that he was refused the right to do this work and that the maps were issued with the names of other parties appearing on them. For this he asks SIO,OOO damage. A second cause of action alleged is that the plaintiff did engineering work for the defendant amounting to s.*o3. A third tatise of action is that he did other work of the same nature worth $989.50.

The testi mony was to the effect that for several days past Crowell had been stopping peo ple on the street land proposing to locate them on claims on the line of the Great Northern road. He exhibited the cards of Charles Reed, real estate broker, and of C. C. Sarvis, business broker. A stubborn defense was made, but the judge was of the opinion that a case had been made out un der the new "disorderly person" ordinance, and found the prisoner guilty and sen tenced him to thirty days' imprisonment. Under the ordinance the jadge can im prison without allowing the option of a fine. R. G. Goule, a Newcastle miner, who was on ilia way to take a Lake Washington boat for home, fell off a Yesler avenue car yesterday at Fourteenth street, but was so drunk that he was not hnrt. The patrol wagon brought him to jail. A message was sent yesterday to the commander of the fort at Walla Walla making inquiry regarding Joseph Reiss man, who confessed to be a deserter from that post of the United States army. No reply was received, so Reissman probably wanted a tree ride to Walla Walla. Recently Judge Rivers scored Officers Glasscock and Powers for arresting two negroes, James Humphrey and S. Jack son, on small evidence on the charge of being disorderly persons. Yesterday, after the conviction of Crowell, Charlie Reed's man, the same officers took in tow, Jackson and Humphrey, who, but five minutes before, were released by Justice A on Tobel on the charge of grand larceny in the Dahl case. As they are men who, it is alleged, live apon the wages of sin, and have no regular business, an at tempt will be made to convict them of be ing disorderly persons. James Welch, a youth who has been in trouble many times, and who is threat ened with being sent to the Reform school, yesterday charged Martin Wall, before Justice Von Tobel, with assault and bat tery. The judge dismissed the case as being a family quarrel. Welch is a de praved boy, and the evidence which he gave himself was of an unclean character. E. A. Lewis, James Ellwood and Thomas O'Brien were found guilty yesterday by Judge Rivers of being disorderly persons, and were each sentenced to ten days' im prisonment. John Lee, the veteran sneak thief, got thirty days on the same charge, and sobbed because he was punished for some other offense than stealing. Juditn Bredsell was lined $25 by Judge Rivers for keeping a bawdy-house and paid the money. Peter August had the same tine imposed upon him for being found in her house. He spent an hour in prison, when one of his friends came and paid his way out. THE ROBBERT IN A NEGRO DIVE. Woman Held for Trial, bat Her Com panions OiHharjed. Jane Jackson, F. Jackson and Joseph Humphrey, all negroes, charged with grand larceny of certificates of depoiit, order* and cash, of the value of $783.10, from S. L'ahl, on Wednesday, in a Black chapel den, were given a hearing by Justice Von Tobel yesterday. The two men were discharged, but the woman was sent to jail in default of s7iio bonds to ap pear before the superior court. Prosecuting Attorney Miller, in order to make sure that Dahl, the prosecuting wit ness, had lind the checks in his possession, wired tne Spokane Savings bank and re ceived a reply stating that l)ahl had all the money there which he claimed to have. The property consisted of a certifi cate of deposit for $306.10 and one for SIOB, and an order on Shepard, Henry & Co. for $lO. In addition to this Dahl was relieved of over S3O in gold. He went into the woman's room and hid his effects in his shoe. He left the apartment for a moment and on his return both the woman and the shoe were gone. The woman and two negro companions found together an hour later were arrested. The papers are all still missing. rAKK ItOAIID INVESTIGATION. Work Pone During tho Month of March oil I'uhlle Playground*. At the meeting of the board of park commissioners held in the Bajley block last night there were present Burgess, Evans and Bailey. B. E. Bennett, Mayor Konald's new appointee, had not yei qual ihed. , The report of Superintendent Taylor was called for and showed that during the month of March considerable work had been done. At Kinnear park 2,839 feet of pipe had been laid and 4,470 square yards of ground sown in grass seed. At the Denny park 1,480 cubic yards of dirt had been removed and considerable grading done, and at the City park much work has been done on the nursery. He submitted an estimate show ing that $378 was the amount required for supplies during April, and he was author ized to incur debt to that extent. The supplies needed consist of pipe and grass seeds. He was instructed to make twelve rustic benches for Kinnear park at a cost of $3 each, and to build a rail a!ons the edge of the cliff to prevent accidents. He was also instructed to surround the Denny park with a barbed wire fence to keep out horses and carriages, and was further instructed 1 to look into the matter of a plat of ground at Harvard and Viilard streets and see what could be done to make out of it small park. Commissioner Barker, chairman of the finance committee, had the March lulls and. being absent, they could not be audited. A special meeting will be held at 4 o'clock this afternoon to audit the bills. Each memlier of the board has been served with the following notice: M vtti.k. Wmk.. April 6. 1*92.

Mr. Von Brocklin a few minutes later was in close conference with the mayor. At the conclusion of this conversation Mayor Ronald said to a POBT- Intflligescer reporter: ' * kaje made up my mind to appoint Mr. van Brocklin on the board of public works as soon as a vacancy may occur.

"The Lion's Mouth" was presented at the Seattle opera-house last night before a large audience by Frederick Warde and his company. The actor was enthusias tically received, and the play scored a dis tinct success. At the end of Act 111. Mr. Warde was called before the curtain sev eral times and was constrained to speak. He said: Ladies and Gentlemen: lam deeply honored by the fciudly reception accorded the ladies and gentlomen of my company und myself. We study to thoroughly merit this. That we are unable to utilize our scenery in mounting the play in the manner it deserve*, is not our fault, not yours, not the fault of your manager, sim ply our mutual misfortune. I trust wa shall continue to merit your warm favor during our stay. The actor's graceful speech pleased all and the play proceeded. "The Lion's Mouth," by Carleton, is a play of great power and is rich with the promise of what may yet come from that gifted writer. It is written of Venice and her struggle for liberty, and though tragic in its nature it possesses enough of humor and delicate romance to soften its sterner motive and to sustain throughout the liveliest interest. It is full of grow ing interest and contains fine climaxes with the exception of the finale of the sec ond act. The curtain falls in this act upon the lovers walking across the stage and is somewhat disappointing, but in all else the play is strong, original and its lines at times rise to genuine classical power and beauty. As Paul de Novarra, an exile, Mr. Warde is given a part well suited to his capacity. It is full of strong pass ages wherein the patriot and ardent lover are] given full scope. Charles D. Herman as the priest Angelo, was most excellent. He played the can ning, crafty priest with rare judgment. As Lenora, the heroine. Miss Adele Bel garde was somewhat disappointing. She has wonderful ability, but uses her voice in a manner that erates upon the nerves. Miss Bowman made a splendid Marcella, and her comedy work was one of the re freshing features of the play. The cast was a very large one, and in tlie main sat isfactory. The performance was one of the most entertaining as a whole ever given in the Seattle opera-house. Tonight "Damon and Pythias" will be given, with substantially the same cast. Tomorrow night "Richard III." will be presented in a novel manner. Mr. Warde lias not yet determined but be thinks of giving the play without scenery. He will probably arrange the stage with a semi circular background of ancient tapestryand make it a wall, as an arras. If he does it will be the first experiment of the kind in America and will be watched with deep in terest. AMUSEMENTS. Emma Juch Next Week. A rare treat for Seattle will be the first pro duction in this city of the much-talked-of prize opera by the young Italian composer l'ietro Mascagni, "Cavalleria liusticana." No operatic work ever written has created the amount of favorable criticisms as have been occasioned by this meritorious com position. The opera is not only accepta ble for its superior grade of music, but is a rare novelty in the method of production. Instead of ringing down the curtain, as is done in other operas, the stage is left in a flood of light, and the intermission is taken up bv the orchestra playing the famous "Intermezzo," an orchestrated number at once grand, beautiful, sublime, and what may be termed catchy. This number, when it received its first hearing in Boston, Mass., was the occasion for the most stupendous amount of applause and enthusiasm ever heard or seen in a the ater, being re-demanded no less than live times. Tfie Juch company carry an or chestra peculiarly adapted to the giving of a perfect rendition of this wonderful musi cal number. "Cavalleria Knsticana." or Kustic Chivalry, will be the opening opera. At Cordray's Theater. "My Partner" attracted a well-filled house at Cordray's last night. The per formance ran smoothly throughout, and the ensemble of the cast is artistie. The auditorium has special attractions this week which never fail to pack the hail ni/htlv with enthusiastic spectators. Afthn T. Baker and Miss Louie fiaker bring jflnvo the house in their humorous sketch acts, and the clever song and dance artists. Miss Chapman and Miss Quiglev, score re lated recalls. BREVITIES.

It Has Been Signed, Sealed and Delivered. THE QUIBBLE AS TO THE DATE. How the Apparent Conflict Aroaa Be tween Two Council Resolutions- Opinion aa to the Sale. The contract between the city of Seattle and Blair dt Co., of New York, for the deliv ery to the latter of $1,2(35,000 bonds was sign ed by the mayor yesterday, sealed by the city clerk and delivered. There will be 1,265 bonds of SI,OOO each, to which will be f attached forty coupons, each representing semi-annual interest payments for twenty years. Blair <fc Co. have telegraphed H. C. Barroll, their agent, that the bonds will be in Seattle about May 2, ready for signature. As some complication might arise by the change of comptroller the understanding has been reached that the new incumbent shall not qualify until the bonds have been signed, so that C. W. Ferris will have the honor of signing the bonds. No legal proceedings have been filed by way of injunction or in anyway question ing the bonds or the contract. The only question that has arisen is as to a resolution of the city council known as joint resolu tion No. 107, which was alleged to have made the date of opening bids April 11 instead of April 4, and as to the amount of the certified check required with ea'ch bid. The question is the merest quibble, and the misunderstanding which arose as to it is due to the interested misrepresentations of unsuccessful bidders. When the time was approaching for the publication of a call for bids, Comptroller i'erris laid the matter before Mayor Hall, Alderman Pontius and Delegate Kittinger, who were the chairmen of the two finance committees of the city council. They di rected him to prepare the necessary pa pers, and agreed to have a resolution giv ing authority for the publication passed. A resolution known as joint resolution No. 105, was, on February 29, adopted by the council, directing the mayor, comptroller and li nance committees of the two houses to take all necessary steps toward securing bids for the bonds. They prepared a statement calling for bids to be opened at 2 o'clock on Monday, April 4, the bids to be accompanied by certified checks of $5,000. On March 17, printed copies of the statement were mailed to thirty of the leading bond brok ers ot the United States, and on March 13 copies were mailed to every bank in Se attle. The following notice was also published in the official newspapers, beginning March 22 and continuing until the morn ing of April 4: SALE OF BONDH —BEALET> BIDS WILL BE received by the city comptroller of the city of Seattle on or before Monday.

C. W. FERRIS, March 22, 1892. Comptroller. No other notice or call of any kind was ever issued. Meantime, Thomas R. Shepard, of Burke, Shepard <fc Woods, who had been employed by the city to draft the bond or dinance, considered it his duty to draw up a resolution calling for bids. He sent in a typewritten form, wherein the date was printed April 4 and the amount $5,000 for checks. It also passed the board of alder men, but during the discussion Mr. Snepard wrote in some interlinea tions of a technical character in lead pencil. He also changed the date in pencil to April 11, because one of the members expressed the opinion that the 4th was too early. The amendment was not put. 'When the resolution went to the house of delegates the subject of the date was not raised, but the question of the amount of the check was, and it was raised by amendment to $25,000 and so passed, but by an oversight the resolution was not returned to the board of aldermen for their concurrence in the amendment, and it therefore became entirely abortive. Two days afterward, when City Clerk Miller was preparing document! for the mayor's signature, he noticed the pen cilled alterations, and referred to the records to see which were carried. He found that several amendments had been made, and those he wrote in ink over the pencil marks. He found that the date had not been amended, and concluded, there fore, that the pencilled amendment as to the 11th had not been adopted, which was true, and accordingly assumed that the original date, the 4th, was the correct one. In order to make sure, he inquired of Comptroller Ferris which was the cor rect date, and learning that the 4th was the one decided upon, and that the notices had already been sent out, was continued in hii opinion that the 11th was not adopted. Although there Is evidence that the house decided to make the amount of the checks $25,000, the necessary amendment was not made in the resolution, and sub sequent inquiry developing that the no tices were out and that the amendment had not been conlirined by the aldermen, the resolution, No. 107, was seen to be wholly unnecessary even if it had been a legal act. There is no doubt that Thomas R. Shepard made the changes in the resolu tion, but it is equally certain that they were not legally confirmed, and the orig inal resolution remained in full force. 11. C. Harroll left Seattle last night. He says Judge Dillon is so far satisfied of the legality of all proceedings that it is very improbable recourse will be had to the supreme court of Washington for judicial confirmation. (j. \V. T. Kiley. who was the second highest bidder, said last night that, al though defeated, he was satisfied with the regulanty of all material proceedings. "Seattle has reason," he added, '-to be very well satisfied with the result. Her bonds have been sold at the hishest price on the i'acitic coast, and the result gives the best evidence of the city's credit abroad; it shows a degree of confi dence in the city's financial security sec ond to no city west of Chicago. When the bids were opened and the highest so clearly determined there shouid have been no hesitation. The city's good taith should be held sacred. N"J subsequent bid snould be considered, for even if the city could haze saved J19.000 instead of H.yno. its pood name and honor are of more consequence to it. Any backing and lilting would have shaken that confidence. "As it is. the city has Bold these bonds higher bv per Cent, than those sold to Harris A Co. Spokane sold tj per rents, at 97; Seattle gets 98.1H for her ■is, which is equivalent to 110 for a fi per cent. bond. The price only nets 5\4 to the investor, which indicates that when next Seattle needs any money sue will rank with the 4'* per cent, cities. The in creased pric« is not merelv due to greater cade ia tkwuvjr mvkei, ucause the funds will eome chiefly from trusts, and it is a positive proof of confidence in Seattle's financial stability." FIGHT OVKR COMPTROLLER. The Campaign Committee and "Tele graph" at Odds Over Appointments. The appointment of J. M. Carson as city comptroller has not yet been con firmed. though the city council has acted favorably upon two other of the mayor's appointments made at the same tirae-- those of B. E. Bennett as park commis sioner, and W. A. Beck as clerk of the municipal court. It does not now seem likely that the council will force the with drawal of Mr. Carson's name, as it did that of E. F. Wittier, though it ia an open secret that the breach between the mayor and the council is so wide that many of the members would like to pursue such a course of active hostility. The appointment of Mr. Carson, like several others made by the mayor, has ex cited deep discontent among the workers of the Democratic party. They had no particular objection to Mr. Carson, except that they wanted some one else, L. D. Ross. They did not love Caesar less but Rome more. The Democratic municipal campaign was managed by young men, Percy W. Rochester, L. D. Ross, L. B. Hart, J. F. McElroy and C. G. Heifner, whom some of the older men derisively dubbed the "kid committee." The "kids." however, did the work, and the fact that their party organ, the Ttltgraph, was a weak ally in the tight was a subject of fre quent comment among leading Democrats. But a full week after the election was safely orer and the victory won, the Tele graph pranceu out with a great flourish of trumpets, and after remarking that the battle had not been one of "rival spouters at ward meetings" or of "linesse and sharp practice between party committees," pro ceeded to claim for itself most of the glory, saying: All tbea* thing, (»pouter», committees, etc.) are the inseparable adjuncts of every campaign; some ol then are necessary evils which ap parently cannot be shaken otf. The contest in this city was of a different sort. It began two years ago, when the Telegraph made a stand against ring rule and open alliance with vice, and its party took up the issue. • • • All that was needed was to guard against whole sale frauds on election day. I'hat was the sole important work of the managers of the cam paign. In short, the election had been carried by the Telegraph, and the committee and the workers were mere excrescences of the campaign—"necessary evils." In the same editorial the Telegraph demanded that the members of all Republican boards and commissions should resign at once and clear the way for the Democratic office-seekers. The inference was easy that the Telegraph was after the spoils, and the editorial was a plain notice to the committeemen that they had no business to make any suggestions as to the distri bution of the cake and candy. The Democratic campaign committee was not particularly pleased by these ut terances, and when Mayor J. T. Ronald paid no attention whatever to the commit tee's recommendations for office, the feel ing of pain in the breasts of the faithful deepened perceptibly. The final issue between the Telegraph and the committee came over the appoint ment of city comptroller. The Telegraph insisted that J. M. Carson was the man. The committee on the other hand, urged with all the strength in its power the appointment of L. D. Ross. He was the only committeeman who was a candidate for any place; and he was put forward as t representative of the young men who had led the fight from beginning to end. But J. T. Ronald is talked of as a candidate for con gress in 1894. Whether or not he really has that ambition, the fact remains that he was unwilling to antagonize the Tele graph. the only paper in the city likely to give him enthusiastic support, and so he threw the young Democracy's candidate far o ntside of the breastworks. The com mittee and Mr. Ross lie bleeding without, while the Telegraph is helping the mayor carve the 'possum. But the fight isn't over yet. THE DEATH OF BBiEIHAN CARET. Remains to Be Sent to Illinois—Fellow- Trainmen M ill Show Regrets. The remaina of John W. Carey, the brakeman who was killed by a freight train at Oilman Wednesday afternoon, ar rived in the city at 6:30 o'clock last even ing in charge of Deputy Coroner Greene, and were taken to Bonney & Stewart's un dertaking rooms. J. B. Carey, the brother of the dead man, viewed the remains at the morgue last evening, and expressed his intention of taking the body back to his old home at Danville, 111. The parents are both livine. although aged. The father is a Methodist minister, and has always de sired that the family lot in the cemetery near the homestead should be the final resting place of all his children. J. B. Carey expects to go East this evening on the 10:50 train over the Northern Pacific. The deceased had lived in the Northwest about six years, first at Fortland, and lately at Seattle. He was a thorough rail road man, and worked on several of the large systems, notably the Wabash, Den ver & Rio Grande and Union Pacific. His popularity among the railroad men of Seattle is evinced by the fact that he was chosen master of the Seattle lodge of the Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen. Owing to the fact that the remains will be shipped East, the lodge will not hold a special meeting, but at the next regular assembly resolutions will be passed and sent to the wife and parents. Mrs. Carey was noticed of the death of her husband by wire yesterday. Hark From Okanogan. J. F. Wardner, of Fairhaven, and Horace D. Andrews, of this city, are at the Rainier hotel, having jnst returned from the Okanogan mining country.

IN THE SPRING I In the vegetable kingdom, the sap or rital fluid rises from the roots to the trunk and branches, producing leaf and flower. So in the human family, the change is as great, for the blood, if not in good condition, must throw oif its impurities. In this it is neces> sary to assist nature, and nothing is so good to CLEANSE THE BLOOD as Swift's Specific. It helps nature to relievo the body, and at the same time tone it up. Mr. RALPH ELKINS lives at Marionsville, Mo., and is a successful fanner. He says that he has been a great sufferer from impuri ties of the blood, which made his limbs stiff and gave him pain in the lungs, but that he took Swift's Specific and it soon relieved him entirely.
