NA REPUBLICAN. FOURTH YEAR. PIICENIX, ARIZONA, THURSDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 4, 1894. VOL. V. NO. 116. ARCTIC MENU. Members of the Peary Expedition Talk. Didn't Like the Way the Captain Acted. What His Private Secretary Has to Say of the Trip. No Members of the Expedition Ever Invited to the Lieutenant's Quarters Poor Menu. By the Associated Press. Philadelphia, Pa., Oct. 3. Since the return of the Peary expedition from North Greenland, on Tuesday last, there have been etoriea of dissatisfaction on the part of the members concerning Peary's conduct of the expedition and the poor quality and quantity of the food he compelled them to eat. The interview had with Mrs. Peary in Washington in which she said she was at a loss to understand the com plaints, has caused much discussion here, and this afternoon the members of the party held a conference at the Bingham house to consider the advisa' bility of making a statement of their reasons for dissatisfaction. The confer ence was held behind closed doors and lasted several hours. At its conclusion the members declined to state what had been decided npon, further than that it was not their intention to make answer to Mrs. Peary's statements at this time. The party has not yet disbanded, how ever, and a further consultation may be held tomorrow. W. T. Swain, was one of the party and went out with Peary as his private secretary, Baid : "We are under no contract with Peary, as regards dissatisfaction with his management. The only agreement that exists was made by ub on board ship, while we were returning to Phila delphia. We then agreed that we would say nothing unless Mrs. Peary opened her lips. This I see she did yesterday. I consider myself at per fect liberty to speak. As for my con tract with Peary, it has been broken re peatedly during the coarse of the expe dition. "He agreed that we were to be treated as gentlemen for one thing. I can say that Lieut. Peary himself cer tainly did not act as a gentlemen among gentlemen. Mrs. Peary, I see, has something to say about the food. Let me give you our menu during the last two months of our stay while we waited for the relief party. This menu waB the outcome of Peary's arrange ments, and was due to insufficient pro visioning in the beginning: "Breakfast Cornmeal mush, sprink led by Peary with sugar with a spar ing hand ; bacon with all the fat fried out of it; an occasional epoonful of Boston beans from out of a can ; coffee. "Lunch Boiled seal meat, tasting like stale mutton flavored with coal oil ; cornbread ; tea. uinner rtemaeer meat, when we could get it; Beal meat when we couldn't; beans occasionally, and don't omit this one-half a Blice of white bread ; coffee. "On Sunday evening, as a special treat, we had for dessert one can of tomatoes among the party. "What Peary and his wife had we don't know. They lived apart, and none of us was ever, during the whole time, invited to their quarters. "Peary treated us to a lot of red tape and autocratic rule, that had Berious consequences sometimes. I am lame on account of it. He would order us to go on a seventy-five mile sledge journey to procure food for his dogs and only give ns an hour's warning, when half a day conld have been accorded. The hour did not suffice to dry our fur stock ings, and we ran the risk of frozen feet. My toe, which lames nie, wag frozen in just that way. "And one thing I can add. no Arctic expedition can ever succeed which takeB a woman along to hamper it." It ia understood that Prof. T. C. Chamberlain, of the University of Chi cago, who accompanied the auxiliary PTnprfit.iftn an crartlrtirict haj aainfafl valuable data bearing on Biacier9. twpen July 25 and August 26 he made a personal examination of seventeen glaciers, and he was Lieut. Peary's guest at Anniversary Lodge for a fort night. The other members of the re lief party say he was really the only scientist who learned all he went to seek. A DEAL IN PAPER.

General Heney by the way was the individual for whom the audience had been lying in wait. He is eloquent but not more so than Mr. Campbell but he had the aaain attrac- H011. the expose of "the Loan Commis- sion, Past and Present." General Hanpv hecrftn wifh miooiv. ings concerning the probable effect of the night air upon his elocutionarv organs. He had, he said, viewed with dismay the case of Judge Campbell and then he spoke of the loan commission concerning which he intended only to tell the truth as the God of Modern Democracy had enjoined in the Maria Halpin episode. He assumed responsi bility for that clause in the territorial Democratic platform which reflected upon Ex-Governor Murphv "who had failed to regard a public office as a nuh lie trust so aptly described by Grover Cleveland ." Here the speaker lingered as democratic speakers are wont to do after "Grover Cleveland" for manifes tations of idolatry in the shape of up roarious applause, but no man clapped his hands and he went on " but as a private snap." The offense particularly charged against N. 0. Murphy was that of re missness. During the eleven months he had been in office he had bad time the speaker Baid, to have corrected the abuses which he found and they were many. He could have removed ineffi cient and dishonest appointees but he saw a golden opportunity to make him self solid. He could permit them to re main in office telling the other appli cants that their turn would come with the next administration. General Heney described tne pastj condition ot the penitentiary and in sane asylum and briefly outlined the history of the prosecution ot Murrav Mclnernay. He pointed to the present management ot the insane asylum and compared it with that of the last ad' ministration. The main BUbject, the loan commission was taken up. The history of the funding act was reviewed from the beginning and the provision for the expense of refunding the terri torial debt. Governor Wolflev had been cbieflv in strumental in its enactment and to bis credit be it said, said the speaker, he had never charged the territory a dol lar tor anv work he had performed in securing its passage or in his efforts to place the bonds. The expense began with Governor Irwin' who had drawn $750 in payment of his expenses among New York brokers. After his retire ment from office and the succession by Governor Murphy, the personel of the commission was changed, and here the speaker described from the records the expense which began to accumulate. He spoke lightly and sarcastically of the trip which ex-Gov. Murphy took to the National convention at Minneapolis at which President Harrison was nominated, intimating that there was a general desire on the part of federal office holders to attend that convention and charging that Murphy's expenses were charged up to the loan commis sion. The item of $350 which was paid to Congressman L. E. Payson of Illinois, tor lobbying in Washington, was de nounced as improper and illegal, and surprise was expressed that an old time politician should sign a warrant for such an expenditure, which makes him indictable in Washington, D. C. .Regarding the $500 which was paid to Col. Herring Gen. Heney said that as he had known Col. Herring for many years and had always found bim a high toned, honorable gentleman and lawyer, he was both surprised and grieved that such item was recorded, but before speaking more severely he preferred to await Col. Herring's explanation of the circumstance. He was certain, never theless, that even though the salary of the attorney general was paltry it was lor all services and all that could le gally be allowed and that it was im proper and illegal that Col. Herring should have drawn extra money even for extra services. He produced a letter of ex-Governor Murphy to Hon. Thomas Hughes in which a warrant was asked for a consid erable sum and in whica the governor said he could not tell how much he had expended but that he knew he had worked very hard. The request was made that the warrant be made to read on account of loan commission. He said that the $1,100 which was drawn by Murphy for eleven months salary, besides being clearlv illegal and unauthorized, was for but ten and one half months' service as he assumed office April 14 and could not make eleven months of it in any way. Editor Morford's act in charging $1,500 tor affixing the seal of the terri tory to the 1,500 bonds was claimed to be entirely unjustifiable and illegal and he related a conversation which he had with Morford in the course of which he asked the latter how he came to draw $100 a month as secretary of the loan commission. He said that Mor ford replied that he did not think the work was worth more than $50 a month but that the auditor had said he had better make it $100 and that it was placed at that. He also show ed that Morford after charging $1,500 for one day's work in placing the seals on the bonds had charged $10 additional tor the labor that day. He itemized the expenses of Auditor Hughes' trip to Washington in April, 1893, and charged that he had ex pended $275 more than was necessary. He refuted the charge that the pre sent territorial administration had pre vented the sale of the bonds by appoint ing Mr. Fleming prematurely to suc ceed Col. Christy and laid the want of success of the negotiation entirely to stringent times. He denied that the credit of Arizona had been ruined by his act in advising Treasurer Fleming to refuse to indorse "not paid for want of funds on terri torial warrants of the issuance of 1870, and contended that he was acting for the best interest of the territory in not recommendine any affirmative act not called for by law to aid the negotiability of bonds bearing ten per cent which might be taken up by funded bonds bearing but five per cent. He closed with a reference to the economic policy of the present ad ministration and with a hearty wind of applause. TESTS ARMOR. Exhibition of New Bullet Proof Armor. Manard Fires a Rifle at His Sister-in-law. The Woman Poses as a Mark Unflinchingly. The Tests Said to Give Satisfaction and General Miles' Attention Will De Sought. By the Associated Pr sss. Chicago, Oct. 3. Captain Manard, the English marksman, last night gave a private exhibition to newspaper men of his new bullet-proof armor, consider able notice of which has appeared in the English press. Capt. Manard used a 38-Martin-Henry rifle in his experi ments. The first test was at a piece of steel about one-eigth of an inch in thickness. This was placed in a vise and the cartridges which the captain intended to use were handed to the members for safe keeping. The first of these were fired at the Bteel plate and the result waB a jagged hole. "Shall I fire at the plate or the lady this time," asked Capt. Manard, and there was a chorus of "At the plate." Again the bullet plowed its way rhro'ugh the steel. Those present refused a second time to ask the young lady, who was Mr. Manard's sister, to pose as a mark, but the captain told her to step forward, and she did so without hesitation. Mrs. Julia Manard held a pack of white cards in front of her Eider's bodv. and Captain Manard fired. Miss Manard moved just a trifle as a result of the shock, but the smile never left her face that had come to it at the refusal of those present to ask her to stand in front cf the rifle. Other tests were made with the regu lation Springfield rifle in ose in the American army, and with the same re sult. He will ask Gen. Miles to make teBts of the resisting power of the material.

Abe Abra ham, a prominent merchant, was publicly cowhided here yesterday by Miss Lucille Doss, daughter of Porter Doss, Sr., proprietor of the Does hotel. It is said that Abraham made a dis paraging remark about Miss Doss, which reached her ears. The young woman armed herself with a cowhide and proceeded to give her alleged de tainer a flogging that brought streams of blood with every blow and made him beg for mercy. Abraham was also at tacked by a brother of the young lady and would have been killed but for the interference of the chief of police who arreBted all the parties. Out of Jail. Ventura, Cal., Oct. 3.
