Waetelagton. NOT. U-—The roport of fha
eomaissioner of navigation for I*M, after
referring to tao nocoaatty for tho passing
of a free ship bill, states: "Oor maritime
rank on tka Pacific Is now threatened by a
new rival. Jspen. which. under liberal and
progeas;re iawa. naa Just established a
trans-Pacific steamship lino to the United
States. and with the co-operation of Amer-
ican capital. is preparing to eatend this
service. In I*Bo tho tonnage of American
▼easels enter.ng trio United States from
porta of A*.a and Oceanica was SJ.W
tons, and of foreign vessels 442.K1 tons.
In IM6 the American tonnage entering was
»*,*Sl tons, in* foreign tor. nag a &7JSM
'The large and profitable carrying
trade once < ondu<-ted between Asiatie
and European porta by American vesse!*
which seldom entered American porta has
almost entirely passed away, we have
already wen the American flag.** the
commissioner nays "almost wholly dis
appear from the mid-Atlantic, save as
borne by the mall steamer* of American
lines, and the figures presented tend to
show that the carrying trade of the Pa
cific is slipping from us."
Before it is altogether lost. Commis
sioner Chamberlain suggests that con
gress inquire Into the conditions of trans
pacific transportation. For the control
of this trade the United States has ob
vious natural advantages. Within the
last five years Japan'** seagoing ste»f
steamers have increased from three of
ST.Toi tons to fifty-three of 106.309 tons.
The number of American steel and Iron
ship* on the Pacific coast is forty-three
of tB.BK> tons.
Tr»e report recommends an Immediate
extension of the set of I®2 under which
the steamships New York and Paris were
admitted to American register and the
steamship* Sr. Louts snd St. Paul were
built in the United States. Under existing
law It is impossible to establish on the
Pacif? a mail service ever approximat
ing to our Atlantic mall service.
The report opposes at length the propo
sition to impose 10 per cent, additional dis
criminating duties on all cargoes brought
into the United States by foreign vessels.
It points out that for over eighty years
the United States has followed the policy
of reciprocity In shipping. Every other
maritime nation of considerable rank has
adopted and now pursues rne same policy.
Our total imports for IKK> were valued at
r31,*®.3«5. of which $590.i#.3W were
brought in foreign vessels. The discrim
inating duty Mil would put an additional
t narge of fs».0».«00 on our International
exchanges, based on tne figures for 14$>.
an amount approximately equal to our en
tire ocean freight bills on imports and ex
in 1595 we imported f96.000.rt00 of coffee,
nf which $*>.000,400 came from Brazil. At
least nine-tenths of this 160.000.000 of cof
fee imported into the country from Brazil,
or 154,000.000. cam* In foreign vessels. For
the extra sum. Mr. Chamberlain says,
which under the discriminating duty pro
ject th* American people would be re
quired to pay for Brazilian coffee alone,
there could be astabllshed steamship
line*. Including twenty-five steamers,
equal to the St. Louis or St. Paul, or a
much larger number of th* class re
quired for South American, Asiatic and
the African trade.
The report quote* articles from our
treaties with the thirty-five principal na
tions In the world, all of which. It Is
contended, must be abrogated at the ex
pense of a disturbance of our trade re
lations with the world If the policy of
discriminating duties is to be adopted by
the United States.
The report also favor* the enactment
of omnibus bills relating to navigation and
to American seamen. In the form favor
ably reported by the senate committee on
rommem at the last session, rather than
In '.he form In which these bills passed th*
house of representatives.
It renew# the argument for the repeal
of compulsory pilotage on coastwise sail
ing vessels, and points out that congress
has spent over fST.OOTi.OOO In the Improve
ments of tweaty-aeven harbors at which
compulsory- pilotage is *UU expected from
domestic sailing vessels.
By the abolition of useless registry bonds
American shipowners have been saved
93P.900 annually and American lake ship
owners about $15,0K? annually, in Canadian
charges Imposed for year* In contraven
tion of the policy of reciprocity.
The adoption of the measurement law,
the r*<pori states, nas effected a saving of
thousands of dol'.ara to American ship
pir.g lq foreign ports, and in domestic
!..--»nses and charges hatwvi on net ton
nage. besides br.nglng our law on this
vubjeet abreast of the laws of the progres
sive nunttne nations.

Heretofore the office of county treasurer
has been anything but a sinecure, owing
to the large bond which has been re
quired by the county commissioners.
Treasurer Hedges lias been in hot water
a Urge part of his term on account of
his bond, which it has been a hard matter
to keep intact. Men who were formerly
rated at several hundreds of thousands
have seen their fortunes shrink until no
one could put an estimate on their finan
cial responsibility. For this reason, those
who signed the treasurer's bond have ex
acted a |ob as a price for their willing
ness to become responsible for his official
acts, or else they have forced the appoint
ment of their friend*. In this way the
treasurer has had to employ men not
strictly of his own selecting. Stephen
Judson, treasurer-elect, has announced
that he will procure a surety company
bond for a reasonable amount. If he fol
lows this course he will be able to make
his arpointmeitfs w'th much less trouble
than has been the case with recent coun
ty and city treasurers.

Oct. *, MaJ. Venanloi says the envoy
plenipotentiary to the Negus Menelik, of
Abyssinia. has telegraphed to the Italian
government as follows: "I have today
with great solemnity si*ned a treaty of
peace and convention for release of
prisoners (in Menellk's hands). **
The treaty provides for the restoration
of rhs statu QUO pending :ho appointment
of delegates by Italy sad Abyssinia, a
year hence, to determine the frontiers by
friendly agreement. It recognises the ab
solute independence of Ethiopia and abro-
«at*s the Ucialli treaty. Italy undertakes
in the meantime not to «ed« the territory
to any other power. Should she desire

By the Ucialli treaty concluded in
between Menelik and Italy. Abyssinia be
came an Italian protectorate. The settle

is the outcome of Italian reverses at the
hands of Abyss]nuns.
MaJ. Veraxma telegraphs further as
follows: The treaty provides for the con
clusion of a further commercial treaty
if necessary. The present treaty will be
communicated to the powers and ratified
a month hence. The convention, after
detailing the arrangement of the release
of the prisoners, provides that Italy shall
indemnify Abyssinia by a sum which
the Negus leaves to Italy's sense of equi
ty for the expenses incurred in the main
tenance of the Italian* prisoners.
The Negus Menelik sends a simultane

ing: "May God always keep ray friends."

Rome, Mov. 13.—The Italia says that the
rumors of the deposition of Archbisbop
Ireland from the diocese of St. Paifl are
evidently untrue, because under the pres
ent pontiff there has been only a single
deposition, which was that of Bishop
Tourny. The Italia, however, suggests as
possible that if Arohbishop Ireland com
mitted further Imprudences the Irritation
of the Vatican would be so great that he
might be invited to resign.

Edward O'Donnell. who conducts ths
Oxford saloon. 327 Pike street, mysteri
ously disappeared yesterday morning. He
leaves many creditors to mourn his sud
den. unannounced departure, and. though
Mrs. O'Donnell persistently maintains
that her life companion's absence is of
but a temporary nature, they feel cer
tain he has taken "French leave," his
destination being unknown.
The Oxford saloon is the property of
David Holder, from whom o'l>onneH
leases it by the month. Saturday the
rent became due and O'Donnell prom
ised to meet it Monday. At the custo
mary hour he opened the saloon yester
day morning, but. Instead of remaining
to furnish thirsty mortals with comfort
ing beverages, he proceeded to remove
all of his portable stock. When fre
quenters of the Oxford sought the accus
tomed "eye-opener" they found the place
locked, while within it presented a bar
ren appearance, everything having been
taken away save a few things belonging
to Mr. Holder. Later in the day Mrs.
O'Donnell came to the saloon. She an
nounced that her husband had left home
early, ostensibly to open the saloon for
the day. but as he had not returned for
dinner she thought something was wrong.
She seemed to suspect that O'Donnell
had skipped out. as the pair had of late
indulged In family bouts, after which oc
currences O'Donnell had remained away
from home several days.
Vague rumors of the saloonkeeper's
flight from his wife were soon sent the.
rounds of gossip, and before long bad
reached the ears of his creditors, of which
there seemed nc end. In a short time
they came flocking to the home of Mrs.
O'Donnell, 715 Pike street, to obtain uome
information as to the recreant's where
abouts. Mrs. O'Donnell pleaded ignor
ance, vowing that she was as anxious to
learn what had become fit him as they
were. With several of the creditors, how
ever, her story would not down. They
seemed disposed to consider Mrs. O'Don
nell entirely too blithe and gay for a.
woman mourning the absence of a hus
band, whose peregrinations had led htm
beyond the confines of his home and busi
Consequently the shadow of the collector
persistently clung to the front stoop and
his hand was Incessantly on the door bell.
Mrs. O'Donnell quickly tired of parley
ing with the aggrieved creditors of her
spouse, so she muffled the bell on the
door, and during the afternoon and even
ing refused to be disturbed by the frantic
efforts of the collectors. To all Mrs.
O'Donnell was "not at home." Up to a
late hour last night Mr. O'Donnell'* cred
itors, anticipating a flank movement on
the part of the wife, kept constant vigil
from the street. They were determined
to thwart any attempt on the part of Mr«.
O'Donnell to remove the household goods,
included in which, they felt assured, was
the stock that had once furnished the
shelves of the Oxford saloon. One gen
tleman who was quit® interested in the
movements of O'Donnell, and who kept
guard on the corner of Pike and Eighth
street*, stated to a Poet-Intelligencer re
porter that he was certain Mrs. O'Donnell
wss as wall aware of her husband's move
ments as wis O'Donnell himself.
*T don't*intend," said he. a* he shifted
from one foot to the other by way of re
lief; "I don' 4 intend that they shall out
wit me. 1 hkve a bill of ft against O'Don

act as though any family jar had disturb

"It's a clever rose on her part. I'll ad

rubbed his half-frosen ears, "but I can
see through It. and it won't work worth
a ."

Robert J. Lamoreanx, a lawyer, politi
cian and swell dresser, left the city
Isst Tuesday night, bound for New York
city, and forgot, or neglerted. to settle
several bills. Friday afternoon the
creditors became clamorous, so to speak,
and so often did Constable Fitsgerald
hear the words. "Where is Bob Lamor
eaux''" that he went to bed muttering to
himself in a wild manner, "Where is Bob
There are all sorts of stories floating
around about Lamoreaux. The main one
has it that he left the city in order to
avoid paying bills. It is certain that
Lamoreaux owed tX*. but the stories
which place the amount between 1759 and
U 000 cannon be substantiated.
Friday evening, when a re
porter started out to get con
fessions from business men that Lam
oreaux owed them he discovered that
they did not have a thin* against him.
The same condition of affairs has been
noted in many similar cases.
A Post-Intelligencer reporter also
learned that last summer Limoreaux
was about to leave the city. when hia
creditors attached his household goods
and c:ade him settle. This Information
came from an official who la in a postOon
to know what be is talking about. He
refused to allow his name to be used, but
he added that he was not surprised to
hear that Lamoreaux had absented him
self from the city without telling his
creditors when he won Id come back.
"Bob" Lamoreaux waa undoubtedly one
of the brightest young men that ev« r
lived tn Seattle. He was also one of the
beet-dressed men in town, his taste being
perfect. No ore ever saw him appear on
the street with hts trousers baggy at the
knee. He was determined to dress nice
ly. and ne did It. (islet. ke*n as a rasor

living where other people might hax«
About five years ago Lamoreaux showed
up in Seattle. He came from Chicago.
At that time he was called "Doc" Lam

site* one, too. After a while he went to
