The complaint alleged that the defend

Tbe Arm charge, cruelty, was eliminated,
as It was found to consist of lack of love.
H Tbe charge of desertion was not opposed
f'r by the defendant. According to Mrs lavik

husband b*ve not lived together as man
and Wife for more than a year, he going
fe home only for the purpose of changing his
apparel and visiting the baby. Altho-igh

Mf*. Lock wood's evidence that her htis

ceased to care anything for her.
More than a year ago husband and wife
had a conversation, in which It was

about among society folk, the burden cf
tba blame attaching to the husband. Peo

love her as he should he ought not to brei*

the court that the defendant was willing

TACOMA. NOV. JS-The big foreclosure
suit of the Provident Life and Trust Com
pany of Philadelphia against the Tacoma
Land Coin par y caused considerable com
ment about the city today, from which
much *jH~nilatir»R as to the final outcome cf
she sale resulted. Some seemed to think
that O. B. Wright would bid the property
tn at the sale, or redeem It within the year
allowed by law, while ether* were of the
opinion that be would allow the trust com
pany to bid it i£». thuc taking off his hands
one of the white elephants he has been
carrying for a number of years.
It is a well known fact that the land com
pany has not been very successful in se
curing payments on land contracted to set
tlers, etc.. nor has it been fortunate in the
matter of tenant*. All these things would
necessarily cause the venerable president
no end of worry and draw from bis "pile"
money with which to keep the concern
The majority of people seem to think that
a change in the ownership of the land com
pany would be the best thing that couid
happen to Tacoma. now that the entire
state is or. the eve of great prosperity.
Not a few people are asking who is to be

college at an early hour this morning. Th®
building was used a* the boys' dormitory
and 'MI yo;ag men were sleeping there
when the flames broke out at 1:30. Tbe

spread with dangerous rapidity and moat

Many were driven out before they could
put on their clothing. The burned building
was * five-story brick and only the black
ened wails remain.
President Bryan says tba fir* will not
interfere with the work of the college.
Many of the students will find rooms in
private dwellings and an old hotel build
ing will be pressed into service.
Th* origin of the fire is a mystery which
is now being investigated. One story is
that it started from a gasoline stove in th*
kitchen, and another that it originated in
the bakery. With the crude method* at
hand, little could be done to check the
iiamca, and attention was directed to sav
ing Mechanical hail. Here the hardest
work centered for nearly an hour.
For nearly two hours the flames raged
in the big building. Floor after floor fell
in and at last the roof came down with a
crash. The scene was exciting. Out in the
fire-lit snow stood several hundred stu
dents and a thousand people from the
town, while from every window of the
gins' dormitory frightened faces peered
and white-robed figured leaned out into
the chill air. The state carried no insur

PORT TOWNSEND, Nov. 23.-W. P. C.
Adams, commissioner of labor; R. H. Nor
ton. Inspector of mines, and William Black
man, mill inspector, are here today on of
ficial business. It is learned that they came
here to investigate the charges of violation
of the eight-hour law on the government
fortification work at Marrowstone point,
although the commissioners themselves
deny this, and returned to Seattle this even
ing without having visited Marrowstone
point at all.
The question has been raised as to
whether or not the commissioners, being
state officers, have any jurisdiction what
ever over violations of labor laws in con
nection with Federal government work.
Those who are making the complaints re
ferred to here, claim to have looked into
this matter, and they assert that the com
missioners only require the consent of the
government officer In charge of the work
to give them full authority to correct any
abuses that may be found to exist there.
It Is said that this consent will be obtained
readily from Capt. Harry Taylor, and that
the labor commissioners will visit Marrow
stone point in the near future, clothed with
full authority to investigate the charges
that have been lodged with them.

PORT TOWNSEND. Nov. 23.—There was
a plain combination among local saloon

the basement of the custom house. The
liquors were the accumulations of seizures
made on the Alaska-bound steamers, and
there was a splendid assortment cf bot
tles, flasks, kegs, etc., among the lot being
two coal oil cans filled with whisky. When
a glass of the liquor from these cans was
ofTered for sampling, it was found to be
badly colored from the cans, and no one in
the room was brave enough to taste It.
Deputy United States Marshal Qullter,
who conducted the sale, facetiously sug
gested that It was a fine brand of "sailor"
whisky, and It then found a ready pur
chaser. But the most part of the liquors
went very cheap, and Uss than $250 was
realized from the sale.

NEW YORK. NOT. 23. W. D. Bynum.
chairman of the National Democratic
committee, has issued the following ad
drees, dated at the headquarters of the Na
tional Democratic commit tee. New York,
November 23:
To Ail the National Democracy: The
results of the recea; election were in no
wise discouraging to the success of the
principled for which the National Demo
cratic party has been battling. The silver
organizations lost the states of Ohio and
Maryland, with the legislatures, which will
choose United States senators.
"In Kentucky the silver candidate had a
majority of only 123, with S&OCO electors, a
majority of whom were unque:*lonabiy for
sound money, not voting. The National
pemocratic vote of the state was twice as
large as It was last year, while the loss :n
the free silver vote was 40.000.
"In lowa the Democratic sound momy
vote was doubled, notwithstanding the sil
ver candidate abandoned that issue and
pleaded for sup&ort on state matters.
"The sound money vote in both Kentucky
and lowa would undoubtedly have been
much larger had It not been for the fact
that the names of ail the local candidate a
for county offices appeared on the ballots
under the free silver state tickets and em
blems. thereby compelling sound
electors to scratch their tickets or vote the
free silver ticket in order to vote for local
"In Massachusetts our vote was inerfa»-
ed over 23 per cent., while that of the free
silver candidate was reduced in the same
"In Nebraska the free silver majority was
reduced, while South Dakota deserted the
"The effort* oi the National Democratic
organization last year were to aid in sav
ing the credit oC tha nation from dis
honor: Its minion in the future will be, if
possible, to preserve the true principles of
Democracy until Judgment and reason
shall again dominate the councils of the
party and its ancient creed be restored to
its platform. Then, and not until then,
will the work of the National Democratic
party be accomplished and Its organisation,
cease to be an independent one. The firm
er the convictions and the bolder the cour
age of National Democrats, the sooner will
the country be freed from the blighting In
fluence of knp?nding disaster. 'No com
promise with dishonor: no surrender of
principle to expediency.' is the shibboleth of
the National Democracy, and each anl
every member of the party should stand
by his convictions and redouble his ef
forts to uphold the principles he believes
to be indispensable to the preservation of
the rights and properties of the people."

John Addison Porter Denies a Preva
lent Rumor.
Special Dispatch to the Post-Intelligencer.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 23.— John Addison
Porter, secretary to the president, posi
tively denies the rumor that has been
widely published to the effect that he will
be a candidate for the United
States senate at next year's elec
tion In Connecticut. Five "candidates for
the Connecticut senatorshlp are already in
the field, and each of them is a personal
friend of Mr. Porter. The list includes Sen
ator Hawley, who stands for re-election;
Samuel Fessenden. ex-speaker of the house
and national committeeman: Hon. Charles
A. Russell, a member of the present ways
and means committee; Hon. William E.
Simonds, ex-member of congress and ex
patent commissioner, and ex-Gov. Morgan
C. Bulkeley, who was at the head of the
Connecticut delegation at St. Louis.
Secretary Porter is well pleased with his
present duties, although they are arduous
and more extensive than those of his prede
cessors. The position of secretary to the
president has become vastly more impor
tant In recent years than it used to be. and
ranks next in importance to a cabinet po
sition. Last year Secretary Porter was a
candidate for the nomination of governor
of Connecticut, and his friends and former
adherents are urging him to enter the race
again, but this he will not consent to do if
It Involves a contest. In other words. Mr.
Porter would take the nomination for gov
ernor. but It must be offered to him unani
Mo Agreement Yet aa to Aetloa on
Cnrreaey Reform.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 23.~8enator Lind
say. of Kentucky, who is one of the threp
gold Democrats in the senate, was asked
today what policy he and those Democrat
ic senators who agree with him on finan
cial questions would pursue In case an
effort should be made to secure curren
cy legislation at th#> approaching session
of congress. He replied:
"We have had no conference among
ourselves and therefore have not agrt-ed
upon any policy. I may say, however,
that I think the country still wants the
currency reform, and I believe that if the
Republicans could agree among them
selves it would be possible for them to
accomplish this end; but without being in
counsels. I see no indications that
this may be difficult to secure. If they
had given us different tariff laws, the ta>k
of securing the necessary reform would
have been comparatively easy, for if the
country's revenues were equal to its ex
penditures. it would not be so difficult to
secure an agreement to repeal the dUM
of the act of Ix7B requiring greenbacks
when presented to the treasury to be re
issued, and that is ail the legislation that
would be necessary, tor. with the neces
sity of the reissuance of the greenbacks
done away with, they would ail be re
de*-m?d and cancelled in a very short tlmo.
In the face, however, of the insufficiency
of the revenues, this course would be
more difficult, and I cannot yet say what,
if anything, will be done or attempted."

is briefly this: The Democratic state con
ventions will be held as usual In 1900 for
the purpose of electing delegates to the
national convention. The conventions will
order their delegates to meet at once and
instruct the national committee to readopt
the Chicago platform in its entirety and
without changing it in the minutest par
ticular. Delegates will further be in
structed to direct the national committee
to cast the votes of the state delegations
for Bryan and authorize that gentleman
to name his own running mate.
