SUNDAY.JUKE 19 1^7. A COSTLY OMISSION. A very trilling mistake has caused the defeat of the most important measure passed this session by the Pennsylvania Legislature. Governor Beaver has dis covered that the General Revenue bill does not contain the signature of the presiding officer of the Senate. The measure passed both branches and was signed by the Speaker of the House, but by an omission of some kind it did not reach the President of the Senate for his signature. Therefore the Governor can not sign it under the provisoes of the constitution. The failure of this meas ure to become a law will benefit the cor porations of the State to the amount of $1,000,000 a year, and this fact has started the rumor that underhand work has been done. The discovery will also necessitate the paring down of a large number of appropriations which were based upon the estimated increase of revenue under the new law. A SOMEWHAT DEFIANT ATTI TUDE. The New York Sun gives publicity to the following: The valiant crusade Com missioner Sparks has made on timber thieves in the West seems to have fright ened most of them into hiding. One concern in Colorado, however, seems to be unterritied. The columns of a little paper up in the Sneffels range contains the advertisement of three enterprising lumbermen, and it is something unique. It runs like this: “We are no rabbits. This is to certify that we are at the old stand, and no son of a gun special agent is going to swoop around our ranch. We buy Winchesters for cash and sell all kinds of lumber on time. Our mill is still running up in the La Sals, and our prices are neither higher nor lower than they were before William Andrew Jackson Sparks and his hench men undertook to reform everything from hell to breakfast. Come and see us. Our place is on the Mesa, and our mill is on the make.” The proclamation of Secretary Lamar giving the land-grant railroads until June 28 to show cause why certain in demnity lands Bhall not be opened to settlement by the public, will, it is thought, result in opening from twenty five to thirty millions of acres, and an area as large as the State of Pennsyl vania, to sale and occupation. This, taken in connection with the allotment in severalty law passed by the last Con gress, which it is claimed will add one hundred and twenty million acres more to the public domain, should furnish homes for a good many millions of people yet. One hundred and fifty miltior acres is an area more than five times af large as Pennsylvania. The President has issued an executive order concerning the importation of in toxicating liquors and breech-loading rifles and ammunition in the Territory ol Alaska. The importation of intoxicat ing liquors is forbidden except upon per roit from a Custom officer at the port oi destination, who shall first be satisfied that the liquors are needed for Bacra mental, medical or scientific purposes. The importation of breech-loading rifles is also prohibited except where intended for the- personal use of white settlers, and temporary visitors not traders. The masters of vessels going into Alaska waters, if they carry such weapons or liquors, are required to take a special manifest or give bonds to prevent illegal traffic in them. A Colorado paper says that the cry of contagious diseases has done more mis chief than anything else in upsetting values in the Eastern markets, and in timates that the cattlemen are them selves to blame for much of it. It says: “ They listen to the bunko men and quacks and by their timidity in not de nouncing the fraud, give it credit. They see men whoare traveling the oountry and working the barrooms and newspaper offices in the interest of pleuro-pneu tnonia, recieving from the Government their ten dollars per day, and yet believe their racket is genuine and that they are stamping out pleuro-pneumonia.” Mrs. Hettie Green, the Wall street woman of many millions, is mighty par ticular in selecting the modest room she occupies in a boarding-house. Her first question to the laudlady is: “Are there any reporters in the house ? ” If not, she inquires: “Have any reporters ever lived in the house ? ” If such a dis aster has occurred to the landlady, Mrs. Green cares not to know when it happened; the mere fact that reporters have had a habitation in the bouse is enough. She says “good day,” and is gone. Tbs Drummer l.stw Heine Tested. W. It. Rosenblatt, of Ban Franoisco, says the Reno Gazette, found guilty in Justice Young’s Court yesterday of viola ting tbe drummer license law of Ibis Blate, and wbo was lined $100, appealed to tbe District Court where bis line was re duced to $50. As tbe Gazette goes to press an effort is being made to have the defendant discharged on a writ of habeas corpus. This is understood to be a test I case. I TELEGRAPHIC. Tlie President Reyokes tbe Order Re garding the Rebel Flags. A VEBY BOM ANTIC 8TOBY FBOM WASHINGTON. The Queen of Englind Very Much Alarmed. THINKS THE INTERSTATE LAW WILL BE A FAILURE. Thliteen Thousand Dollars PJd for a Bible. The Order Revoked. Washington, June 16.—The follow ing letter was sent to the Secretary of War by tha President to-day in regard to the disposition of the flags captured by the Union forces during the late war: “ I have to-day considered with more care than when "the subject was orally presented to me, the action of your de partment directing letters to be ad dressed to the Governors of all the States, offering to return, if desired, to the loyal States the Union flags cap tured during the war of the rebellion by the Cofederate forces and after wards recovered by the Government troops, and to the Confederate States the flags captured by the Union forces, all of which for many years have been packed in boxes and stored in the cel lar and attic of the War department. I am of the opinion that the return of the flags in the manner thus contem plated is not authorized by the exist ing law nor justified as an executive act. I request, therefore, that no fur thr esteps be taken in the matter except to examine and inventory' these flags and adopt proper measures for their preservation. Any direction as to the final disposition of them should origi nate with Congress. Yours truly, Grovbr Cleveland.” A Romantic Incident. Washington, June 17.—The election of W. E. Chandler to the Senate from New Hampshire, recalls a romantic incident. Chandler married a daugh ter of the late John P. Hale, of New Hampshire, who was then Senator and afterwards Minister to Spain. When J. Wilkes Booth was shot, there was found on him a picture of the daughter of the New Hampshire Senator. Whether Booth was more than an admirer is not known; but that he was profoundly impressed by Miss Hale’s accomplishments anil beauty, was well known in Washing ton at that time. But something still more romantic was to fall to Miss Hale’s lot. The son of the man whom Booth assassinated, Robert Todd Lin coln, was President Arthur’s Secre tary of War. Chandler was Secretary of the Navy in the same Cabinet. Official etiquette prescribes that at the state dinners and other ceremonies, the Secretary of War shall escort the wife of the Secretary of the Navy. Thus was presented the singular fact of the son having on his arm a lady whom his father’s assassin thought most of. Another peculiar thing is that in 1865 Miss Hale and a daughter of the late Secretary Zach Chandler of Michigan, were girls together. Miss Chandler married Senator Eugene Hale of Maine, and the Secretary’s daughter became a Senator’s wife. Miss Hale married Mr. Chandler and became the wife of a Secretary, so that during Arthur’s administration the ladies not only exchanged names, but also official rank. SlierllT Cramer Arrested. Denver, Col., June 17.—Consider able excitement was created in politi cal circles here this evening by the Grand Jury returning six indictments against Sheriff Cramer for false pre tenses and malfeasance in office. It is alleged that the Sheriff has been in the habit of making overcharges for transporting prisoners to the jieniten tiary, charging $5 per day for guards, when the fact has been he was only paying $2 or $3, and other illegal transactions of a similar character. Indictments were also returned against the Under Sheriff, J. M. Cherington, and against Deputies Lind and Thornton, charging them with perjury in charging for services never rendered. Deputy 8. P. Reck went on the Sheriff’s bonds of $1,000 for his appearance at the Criminal Court to-day and the Sheriff went bail for the appearance of his deputies. The Sheriff declares there has been no illegal transactions in his othce and that the matter is a persecution on the part of political enemies and he has no fear that he will be able to vindi cate himself of the charges. Colonel Cherington was the officer who in 1804 led two regiments of volunteers in the famous Sand Creek massacre in South Colorado at which time several hundred Arapahoe and Cheyenne In dians were butchered. Tbe Queen Alarmed. London, June 17.—The Queen has became alarmed by reports that the fiolice had discovered that dynamite plots had been arranged to be carried out during the jubilee week. The Home Office authorities were angry because the police disclosed their in formation about the existence of plots, and called upon them for an explana tion. The police said they made the matter known in order to deter the desperadoes from carrying out plots which they may have formed. Herd, of the Metropolian police force, has ordered the ambulances be longing to the police to lie stationed at various points along the route of the jubilee procession Tuesday. The or der of St. John of Jerusalem will also supply a number of ambulances and procure the services of companies of the volunteer medical staff corps. Many policemen who formerly served in the army hospital corps, have been selected for special duty Tuesday. It is officially explained that all these phenonmenal preparations are made simply with a view to be prepared for possible accidents, sunstrokes, etc. The “Advertiser'’ Till nun the In terstate Law n l-'nilnre. New Yoke, June 17.—Criticising the decision of the Interstate Railroad Commission on the long and short haul, the Commercial Advertiser says: Does it not leave things, in effect, pre cisely as they were in the beginning and before the Interstate law was en acted? The roads were formerly free to arrange tariffs as they chose, with a view to meet competition, and they are free to do so now. The roads are liable to discipline by the courts and other authorities in case of exorbitant charges, but so they have been always. The fact of the matter is the Inter state Commerce Commission have found, on experiment, that the great natural laws of trade and commerce cannot be altered at will by the arbi trary interference of Congress or anv other body, and this document is es sentially a confession of the fact. In brief, the Interstate law is a failure, as it was destined to be from the first. The Rahway Mystery Solved. New York, June 17.—The myste rious murder of the young girl atRah way, New Jersey, March 25 last by an unknown person, has been cleared up by the arrest and alleged confession of one of the murderers, who gives his name as Kasper Strumbeck. On June 6, Strumbeck, who is German, came to Iuka looking for work; he inquired if there were any Germans there and was referred to Robert Bow man, a blacksmith. In conversation with Bowman, the latter noticed that Strumbeck seemed greatly troubled, and he asked him what was the mat ter. He said he had done something bad in New Jersey and it bothered him almost to death. Mr. Bowman called a constable who succeeded by a pumping process in getting the man to tell the story of his part in the mat ter in the murder of the Rahway girl. Sharp's Trial. New York, .Tune 17.—In the Sharp case to-day Mr. Nicoll concluded hiB opening address. Ex-Alderman Fulgraff was the first witness called. He told about the same story of the “combine ” that he has already told in the former trials. He does not know Sharp. He tripped himself up, however, on cross-exami nation by swearing he received only $10,000 for his vote, wheieas tie swore on another trial it was $18,000. Sev eral other minor discrepancies were also developed by Sharp’s counsel. 913,000 Paid for a Bible. London, June 17.—At the sale of Lord Crawford’s library to-day, a Gutenburg Bible, the earliest book printed with movable types in original oak boards, was put up at £650 and sold for £2,650.
