There Is an Impression in the In terior Department That He Ha Re ceded From His Position. Washington, June 19. (Special). Dwignt B. Heard of Phoenix has come and gone. "There was nothing doing" so far as the secretary of interior and the director of the geological survey were concerned. Mr. Heard was told that there would be no change1 in the attitude of the interior department; that the article nf the Water'Users association of the Salt River valley were entirely satis factory and that if the reservoir is to be built it will be in accordance with the plans which Mr. Heard has been so earnestly fighting. Whether intentionally or not Mr. Heard succeeded in creating the im pression before he departed from Washington that he would accept the situation and advise his followers to endorse the government's position. I was in New York when Mr.Hcard came and did not tee him and I cannot say definitely that he has changed his plans, but the government people who talked with him have an idea ho has 'Teen a light. , Judging from the reports from Phoe nix the fight will be over by the time Mr. Heard returns to the valley so that his position will not be of any particular consequence.

RAILROAD OFFICIALS Get Practical Experience in Handling Freight. ' Kansas City, Mo., June 19. Several high-salaried railroad officials donned overalls and began trucking freight in place of the striking freight handlers today. The rtrike has practically tied up the handling of freight here by the Rock Island and . Frisco railroads, and has greatly interfered with freight handling by the Burlington. Several of the other reads declare they are not Injured, but the strikers talk differently. The Indications are that within a few days all roads will be taking care of freight as usual. GROVER IS INDIGNANT Mr. Cleveland Says That Most of the Bailey Interview Was a Lie. Princeton, N. J.. June 1!. Grover Cleveland, on being shown the inter view reported by Mr. Bailey of the Gal veston News, made the following statement to the Associated Press cor respondent today: "I am very much astonished to sec such a statement by one who only gained friendly access to me by reason of his being the re pre- sentative of a paper formerly conduct- ed and owned by my "deceased friend. Colonel Belo, and now conducted by his son. "I do not know whether Bailey in tended it or not, but he has given a very erroneous impression of what oc curred between us.

Is being v or ganized to purchase and operate a group of gold mines near Phoenix whose substantial value has juet been demonstrated. The stock is limited and has all been placed, but as the enter prise is of particular interest to rhue nix business men (from whom nil sup plies used ate being purchased). 1.2.10 shares at $12.50 per share have been set aside from the company's treasury for sale In Phoenix. The conservatism of this proposition must be self-evident. Under ordinary methods such a property would be floated on a million dollar capitaliza--tion. Instead of spending large sums for guady pamphlets, agent's commis sions, t'secretary's salaries," etc., the entire receipts from this sale of stock will be used in purchasing a mill, con centration and cyanide plant, so that the mine will immediately become a producer and dividend payer. It is In fact a "ground floor" opportunity. In 1900 I demonstrated that the old Cobre Grande Co., (n a capitalization of half a million, could eal-n net profits of $1,500.00 per day. I can as truthfully assert that after installation' of the plant above referred to, the net earn ings of the Wood Mines Co. will ex teed 30 per cent of the capitalization.

Savable, Ijie favorite, is expected to lose by many more experts than have picked him to win. Instead of becom ing a warmer choice as he day ap proaches, his odds have gone up half a point ana he is now 2'i to 1. A week ago the race looked like a duel between Savable and Irish Lad. A few days later, when the withdrawal of Irish Lad was announced, the event appear ed to be at the mercy of Savable. Then Linguist and Judge HImes came out and raced Savable to a head in a mile and an eighth race, and the stock of the favorite immediately be- igan to decline. He Is still regarded as J the most likely winner on a fast track. but thro is n, certainty that the course : . . . : 1 1 i . : . i . win ie ai lis uesi. The mere fact that Savable Is be lieved to bff in over his head has serv ed to increase the size of the field. It Is strictly a wesfern lot of horses, and includes all kinds from Claude K.. who has won the eastern- Derbies, to Rate, a horse that has never yet been seen in public. Rate was . known as Ravele until late this afternoon. He was en tered by E. Corrigan as Ravele, but a message from Registrar Wheeling of j the Jockey club gave the information : that the colt was imported from Eng- land last year under the name of Rate, and Rate It will have to be In tomor row's race.

Tilt BALKAN STORM Likely to Break Again With Increased Violence , Probable Renewal of the Macedonian Revolt With the Approval of Bul gariaThe Powers Warned. Belgrade, June 19. The following no tification was gazetted: "The Russian minister has informed the minister of foreign affairs that he will enter into relations with the'Ser- vlan government today, as the czar had been pleased to recognize Trlnce Peter Karageorgevitch as king of Ser via." As Foreign Minister Kalevics official ly visited the Russian legation today, the formal relations appear to have been a.ready resumed. The Btreets of Belgrade are beginning to wear a gay aspect. They are decorated with flags and Venetian masts have been erected from the palace to he railroad sta tion N The position of the regicides under the new king is freely discussed and It is generally expected that they will be promoted and pensioned and then grad ually removed. Any slight to them, howejrer, would be hotly resented by the army, which is master of the situa tion. ' Th.' newspaper correspondents who came" here from Sofia have been recall ed. This leads those who are intinuto !y cognizant of the Balkan sitautio:! to anticipate a recrudescence of the revolt in Macedonia. They consider it ossi b!e that the revolutionary committees have proclaimed the autonomy of Macedonia and say it U quite possible that Bulgaria will openly favor and aidi such a line of action. The best Inform ed reop'.e here regard the whole Balkan situation as being most serious, and they think tfiat unless the great pow ers act quickly and decisively there is danger of a great conflagration.

The Boston j & Maine brakemen have Just been re lieved by an official order of an Im portant and long-standing part of their duties that of assisting women on and off the cats. The rule has hitherto been general, and has been Interpreted without tear or favor, but now. according to In structions Issued by Superintendent Sanborn, only the aged, feeble or in firm, the bundle or baby laden female is to get assistance. This places matters on a basis more to the liking of the shirt-waist girl, who is understood to be responsible for the new rle. Brakemen and conductors often have grimy hands which. In the literal Interpretation of orders, are lia ble to leaves traces on immaculately laundered elbows.

A HEALTHY COUPLE An Old Soldier of 90 Had Some Coffee Experience An old soldier's wife described her coffee experience as follows: "My hus band and I have been accustomed to the use of tea and coffee for a very great many years and we were very fond of the coffee. 'Some time1 ago we received from a dear friend in St. Ixuis a Christmas box that included a pavkagc cf Pos tuni. I prepared some .without reading directions and my husband said: 'O nonsense this tastes just like tho crust water that was one of the luxuries they allowed riis SO-years ago.' Thci I looked up the directions, made the Postum a's it should be made and w both found it delicious. , "My husband Is a' broken-down soldier and was a dyspeptic and suffer ed from severe headaches but from the time we commenced to drink Pos tum wc have not taken a cup of lea or coffee.

My dear husband's headaches have disappeared since we left off the coffee and began Po.tum, and I find myself mentally stronger end much better able to concentrate my thoughts than for several years past.

A SINGLE JUROR Saved Curtiss Jett and White From Conviction TaKen Where Justice fWill Be Fully Dealt Out to Them Talk of Break ing Up Bloody Breathitt County. Jackcon, Ky., June 19. But for one jurcr, Curtis Jett would have been con victed here today for the murder of J. B. M,arcum, and a mpjoiity of the Jury favored the conviction of Thomas White also. Both are tonight In Jail at Lexington, .and their next trial will be at Cynthlana, more than 100 miles from Jackson, away from the moun tains and in the blue grass region, un der very different conditions from those existing in Breathitt county. The interest In the change of venue today was second only to the verdict When Judge . Relwine rafused to hear argument? on the change of the locaLlon. It was stated by many In the court house that the presiding Judge had heard from Governor Beck ham who Is generally belived to have had something to do with the change of venue to Harrison county. The residents here feel that if the verdict of today had been one of con vlctlon, violence would have followed and It would have extended to others than the witnesses, jurors and those who had taken part in the prosecution It Is thought now that after the trials of Jett and White in Harrison county the cases of other assassins who are known here and who have never "been arrested, will be taken up with Borne assurance of Justice on a change of venue. Among the rases tiled is that of the late Dr. Cox. whose friends refused to secure witnesses before any jury In Breathitt county that was selected un der the present regime The next case ' on the docket here is that of Curtis Jett for killing Town Marshal James Cockrill. but it will be p-8tponed un til after the trials at Cynthlana and many beliere now that there will be no need of trying Jett on more than one of the cases standing against him. Color.el Williams is at Frankfort to night conferring with the governor re gardir.g the withdrawal of the troops It is understood that he advised the governor that to number of - troops could stop the lurking firebugs or the hidden assassins, but that at least one company should bo retained in Jackson so long as Provost Marshal Longmire was kent in charge of the town.

THE PROSECUTOR FLED. Jackson, Ky., June 19. It is consid ered that Prosecutor Byrd is not safe here, and he went to Winchester to night. Mr. Bailey, foreman of the grand Jury which Indicted Jett and WJiite. has asked for military protec tion. He says he has received hints of trouble in store for him. ' JETT WAS VIOLENT. Lexington, Ky.. June 19. When Jott and White arrived at Lexington .to night they were taken rapidly to the jail by the state guards and placed In separate ste"el cages on the third floor of the jail despite their request to be placed together. Jett had been exceed ingly unruly and ineulting all after noon, evidently under the lnfluenup of liquor. County Judge James Hargis of Breathitt came down on the train with Jett and White. Later Hargis visited the prisoners at the Jail. i o ORE SALTING CASE. Again a Yavapai Jury Is Unable to Agree. Prescott. Ariz., June 19. (Special).

There is one less lone voyager on the Atlantic ocean. Ludwlg Elscnbaum, who left Boston three weeks ago In a small open dory to cross the Atlantic, has returned and given It up. Elsenbaum went 350 miles to the east making the Gulf stream. After leaving Ttnutnn he was a week at Marblehead Sand Magnolia, leaving the latter place two weeks ago today. Since then the weather encountergd has been bad. He rode out one gale on the Georges, lying to with a drag. There was no shelter on the boat and so much fog wks encountered that Elsenbaum has been wet ever since he started. He became stiff with rheumatism and was afraid he would get so bad he could not navigate his boat. Elsenbaum turned around and with difficulty made Boone island" yesterday, and when the fog lifted this morning he ran in to the Rockport lifesaving station. Captain Bearse treated the crampedand chilled mariner to a hot breakfast and then a bed. IT IS GOING TO PIECES The Early Collapse of the Western Passenger Association. Chicago. June 19. The Evening Post today says: The general opinion among western railroad men is that the West ern Passenger association, with all Its bureaus, is on the verge of collapse. Its downfall is likely to be accompanied by a widespread rate war. , Indications have been pointing in this direction for some time past, but the result of yes terday's meeting of the executive com mittee of the' association and of the expected considerably nearer and has made dissolution almost Inevitable, t No hope is entertained that the rec ommendation of the executive commit tee to institute a 2.000 mile book good on all trains for the credential form of Interchangeable mileage now in use will be adopted o- THE OLD CONSTITUTION Made Hairs of Friends of the Reliance Stand on End. New York, June 19. If the Constitu tion did not defeat the Reliance on the time allowance in a. twenty-five mile race over the course of the Indian Har bor Yacht club in Long Island sound today, she gave the admirers of the new boat a bad rcare. In more than four hours of sailing the Reliance out sailed the Constitution by only one minute and fifty seconds, elapsed time. It Is estimated that the new boat will have to allow the Constitution two or three minutes in a thirty mile race, which, if rue. would give today's race to the older boat and might give her one of the earlier races as well, when the Reliance beat her by two minutes and a fraction. Tho Columbia, was again outclassed from the start. Her gain of about twelve minutes of the second led of the race was time wasted by the otherJ boats: in a lufling match. Between the leaders the race was hotly contested, first one and then the other gaining th belter of it. but sudden shifts, when it began to- blow steadily, 'left the Reli ance about one minute ' ahead. The ConsTitution's fast sailing today was all the more remarkable and maks her all. the more fromidable from the fact that the race was sailed in light winds and smooth water, under which conditions the Reliance 'has of ten. beaten her." The course was a triangle ten miles across, the sound, five miles over to the "Connecticut shore and ten miles along that shore to the finish line. THE PHOENIX NATIONAL BANK PHOENIX. ARIZONA.

V OUR UNCLE SAM Runs a Risk of Being Cited for Contempt A VIRGINIA INJUNCTION Stopping WorK on the Gunboat Gal veston, It Was Decided at a Cabinet Meeting Yesterday Should Be Vio- ' lated. j Washington, D. C. June 10. The time of the cabinet meetitt? today was consumed in a lagge part by the con sideration of the legal questions in volved In the decision of the United States government t disregard the de cision of the court of Virginia and seize the uncompleted gunboat Galves ton at the Trigg ship yards at Rich mond. Attorney General Knox presented a carefully prepared opinion on the sub ject, strongly affirming the right of the government to disregard the in junction granted yesterday in the Virginia court which forbids the resumption of work on the Galvcs-ion pending a settlement of the claim of the subcontractors who have nt been paid for the material furnished. "In his opinion the attorney g uer.il says: "One further point remains to be ur. sidered. The letter of the secretary of the navy requests to be authorized to employ If necessary the military furies of the government at his disjo.-ial for th; execution of his orders in the prem ises. I am loath to believe thai occa sion for such an exercise of the federal powers will arise, being confident that any claim to Interrere with tne na tional rights under the judicial authori ty of the state of Virginia will 1? promptly disposed of and denied by th chancery court. For this . reason I shall defer answering that question." The cabinet after considering tbli opinion unanimously decided that the government's case was sound and that the programme outlined yesterd.iy by Mr. Moody should be pursued. An ef fort will be made to launch the beat next Monday if conditions permit. It is intimated that tho Information will be conveyed to .the Virginia justice who granted the injunction in this cas- that he- has exceeded his proper functions and !t is expected that he will with draw from what the attorney general and tWe president regard as an untena ble iosltion. thus avoiding any claim, et Richmond. By the president and members of the cabinet the action tak en at the meeting :3 regarded us of the highest importance. The question raid ed is new and a!mct unique. Both the president and his advisers gave it the most careful consideration. It 13 understood that the opinion of Attorney General Knnxs submitted originally tthe president and cabinet was modified slightly before it was made public. It was stated yesterday on excellent authority, that the attor ney numeral in his opinion upheld th right of the terretary of the navy to use force, if ne-essary. to carry int- effect his orders. It was regarded by the cabinet it is said, to be iiiexrdietit to precipitate that question at this time, as iCwas belicvedvto be ei.tlrely likely that a way woulu tv- f-mnd to amicably adjust the apparent difficulty between 1 the t-tate iurt of chaixt-ry and the authorities of the g jverr.ineut Practically the eutire time of th- cabi net today was devoted to the consider ation of the question relating to the Galveston. o ST.
