NO. 1. . vAUU-y I $ime$ 1 DEltf MEANS ITS LOSS (ague of Republican Clubs Seeking Headquarters. OTHEB CITIES WANT THEM Officera Favor Washington, But No Inducement Is Offered to Locate Here Matter "Will Be Finally Set tled at a Meeting Next Week New York's Chances Are Good. The fact la becoming apparent that un lets the citizens of Washington generally take prompt and united action looking to 'the establishment in this city of the head quarters of the National League ef Repub lican Clubs another location' will be se lected. It has heretofore been expected that a strong effort would be made to brine the league offices bce, this movement to be followed by a slmik one to obtain the headquarters of one or the other of the great parties during the campaign of next year. It has only been within the past few days that any serious thought has been given to this matter, and local republicans say the necessity for immediate work cannot be to much emphasized, in view of the fact that the executive committee of the league will meet in Chicago on August 14 and se lect a place from which affairs will bo conducted during tile canvass. This committee consists of ono member from each State and Territory and the District of Columbia. The meeting will be of unusual Importance, as It is called for the purpose of selecting a headquarters andatthesame time mappingouiane wand more effective method of aldng the party In campaign work. D. A. Kay, private secretary to Senator Cullom, is the member of the League Ex ecutive Committee for the District, and to-day stated to The Times reporter that he expected to attend-the meeting unless prevented from doing so at the last mo ment" by unforeseen events. In any case lie will be represented by a capable proxy. Mr. Ray says there is quite a sentiment prevailing in favor of locating permanent teudquartcrs in Washington, especially among some of the Eastern members, but Is inclined to lx'llcc that the delay in beginning work to secure the headquarters Trill now result in some other place being Chosen. He regards New York as the most Probable selection, in view of the fact that President McAlpIn resides in that city, and It has almost become a precedent that the executive officers shall follow the president. This was done inlhe case of ex-President Tracy, when Chicago was made headquarters. In case New York should not be named Mr. Ray believes that Chicago will bo elected. He calls attention to the fact that the Lake City Is rapidly becoming a great centre for all things political, and the indications already point to the likeli hood of the Republican National Conven tion being held in that city. In which event the league would ba in a position to rtnder the stronger organization material assist ance. The amount necessary to secure the League headqua rters for Washington would aggregate a comparatively small sum. The total debts do not exceed something like 96,000. In addition the rental of adequate accommmodatious for office rooms and Other contingent expenes would probably p sufficient to capture tbo prize. There .bare been times. -when large quantities of campaign lltciature have been sent out by the League from this city, entailing the Employment of a considerable clerical force. But there will not be another na tional meeting of the League until a year from the present month , which will carry the time beyond tile nominating com entlon. This will compel the auxiliary body to prosecute a short but active campaign. It is for this reason, Mr. Ray says, that especial attention will be given by the ex ecutive committee at their meeting next week to trie question of improved methods. It Is desired to devise somo comprehensive plan by which the League can render more effective support to the party. Capt. Thomas II. McKee, one of the hardest-working of the Republican managers. Is rice president of the League, but does not at this time expect to be present at theforthconilng meeting. He expresses him self as slrottzlv in favor of makine Wash ington the headquarters for the organiza tion, and In the event of bis being present be will use all his efforts' for the accom 'pilsbnient of that end. DEBS AND THE OLD UNIONS. A Mighty Protest Against tho Court's Decision Urged for Lalmr Day. Terre Haute, Ind., Aug. 5. A circular has been issued from the headquarters of the American Railway Union, which after treating of -various business matters, as sails the old brotherhoods and the latter's grand officers in a savage way. The cir cular is addressed to the local unions and Is signed by Eugene V. Debs as president. It bears evidence of his bitter feeling toward the officers of the brotherhoods. The unions are urged to dedicate Labor Day, September 2, to a mighty protest against the action of the United States court, "by which trial by jury brbeen abrogated and civil liberty bludgeoned to death." This Is in connection with the general movement among labor organiza tion to observe tho day this year. It is aid that the directors will be released August 22 and President Debs November 22, and that they are to ma ke an aggressive campaign In the Interests of labor. It is stated that the last twenty days have witnessed a change that Is remarkable. "Unions that were believed to be hope lessly dead have risen as if by magic." TO PREVENT A SALE.

Trial Begins Tills Week With a "Weak Prosecution. Ban Francisco, Aug. 6, The real battle In the Durant case wlUTicgin this week. The end of the skirmish for jurors Is confidently predicted for Thursday, at the' latest, and the real work of the trial will begin at once. The prosecution will make the charge as to what It expects to prove against the young medical student, and tho first witness of a long array will be placed on the stand to supply bis link In the chain of circumstances encircling the prisoner. The prosecution's Hue ot testimony hat been public property for some weeks. It bos not one witness ojjier than has already appeared in the cosc.Tbe district attorney Is authority for this, as well as the chief of detectives, Capt. Lees. In fact, they go further and say there will not be as many witnesses for the prosecution by two the Rev. J. George Gibson and Conductor West, of-the Powell street line. Neither of then: will appear at all unless they are called.by the defense , as they probably will be. Capt. Lees states that the witnerscs were merely called in a spirit of fair play to show the full hand of the prosecution to the defense, so that no charges of concealment could bo made. Their testimony was taken down direct and cross-examined, and that mo ment, Capt. Lees states, he considered his duty done, and the prosecution decided to call them to the Btnnd no more. WILL GIRDLE THE WORLD Taylor and Coleman' Start on Their Trip in Good Spirits. Oil a Wager They "Will Earn Their "Way aud Bo Back in Four teen Months. Archibald Coleman tind Charles H. Tay lor made a start-from tho west steps of Capitol to-day for their trip around the world. It was a few moments before 11 o'clock when tho two young men arrived, and when the hour of 11 struck, they started, after bidding good-bye to a few jieoplo assembled to see them off. " Tho only persons on band to see the pair off on theirlong tramp wasTaylor's mother, a lady friend, Mcintosh, and The Evening Times reporter. Both boys were In the best of spirits and have not a doubt that their attempt? to see the big world as, "gentlemen ho boes" will be successful. Coleman is the son of a banker ot De troit, and is a collie man. Taylor was born and ralsd In this city and is also a young man of good schooling. The trip tliey have started on Is to Include a visit to England, Ireland, Germany, France, Spam, China, Japan and Africa. Among the cities to be touched are Lon don, Dublin, Paris, Calcutta, Bombay, To wn. Hong Kong and Yokahoma. They will also visit Cape Town. The trip is made to decldo a wager, made by Coleman and Taylor with Mr. Charles P. Mcintosh, of Philadelphia, who is friendly with both of them. Some weeks ago Coleman and Taylor, in talking to Mc intosh of such a trip, which Is to bo strung out to cover 30,000 miles of travel, said it ought to be made in fourteen months, or.d that they could make their expenses as they went, along. Mcintosh Jocularly said he would bet ?500 that they couldn't perform the Jo!) according to such a contract, and they took him up. ' This morning Coleman and Taylor met Mcintosh at tho Capitol Heps. Mcintosh told The Evening Times reporter that he bad no notion that the joung fellows intended to try the trip when they called him, but he was now convinced they were; determined on such an effort. "And," bald he, "I heartily hope they will win my money." He icave them each a one dollar bill to carry them to Baltimore, from which point they are to tiustlo for themselves. At Baltimore the young meu hope to get work to enable them to ship 'from that point. If they don't they will try to raise a sufficient sum to pay their way to to New York, and If they-fail In this they will walk. HOKE BLOOD-STAINED CLOTHES.

EDUCATION BY CAHTOON. Probability ot Bloodshed In tho Chi nese Factional Quarrel. San Francisco, Aug. 0. There were many scones of wild disorder in Chinatown yesterday and at one time It was believed a geueral riot was imminent. The cause of tho trouble was the posting of a cartoon in colors, depicting the Cliinebe" consul gen eral receiving bribes. Five thousand Chi nese gathered to get a look at the caricature and it was only by tho police vigorously using their clubs that they were dispersed. Other cartoons were posted In various places, but were immediately torn down by the police.

Loss ot Two Hundred Thousand Dollar mid Only Twenty-FlveTuon-and Insurance, Nearly All of tho Policies Having Been Cancelled ira Account of Recent Dlmistroas Fires. Baltimore, Aug. B. All the business portion of Berlin, Worcester County, to gether with mauy-s-ildenccs , was com pletely destroyed by Ore last night. The total loss Is about 5200,000, with only $25,000 Insurance. The town of Berlin, with a population of 2,000,1s situated at the Junction of the Philadelphia, Wilming ton aud Baltimore Railroad and the At lantic Kallroad. A spark from a passing locomotive may have started the flames, which sweit over six acres of buildings, aud only stopped when there was no struc ture close enough for them to reach. Another report has It' that the fire was caused by a cigar slump. There were but few people in the village last night when the flames first issued forth from tho stables of G. W. Henry, Tho attractions at Ocean City and near by camp meetings nearly depopulated the town, and but a corporal's guard was on hand to combat tho destroyer. The fire brigade did good work In checking the progress of the flames toward the west, but toward the north, south and cast their efforts were unavailing, though only a gentle wind nis blowing. Boon the Atlantic Hotel and all the buildings on Broad street as far north as the residence of J. J. It. Purnell were enveloped. Then tongues of fire leaped across Broad street and ignited the buildings opposite. Tho progress of the fire was controlled near Bell's store, the postoffice, and Dr. A. A. Franklin's drug'storo, leaving those buildings standing, though badly scorched, with much damage to stocks by water. Though checked in this direction, the flames spread to the south on both sides ot Main street, destroying in their course the large storehouses ot Edward S. Fur bush S. Co., the business places of Dr. Levin Dlrlckson. A. F. Powell & Co., J. T. Kcas A Co., Purnell Brothers, .P. B. Bane, Dr. S. K. Marshall, H. E. P. Henry iBons, the Adams Express office. Clay Conway, T. S. Hammond & Sons, Henry Parsons, Wise and Pen ell, Peter Parker, John Mull ford, John Cropper, Henry Anderson, Charles Qulllcn, Miss Mary Anderson, Miss Lizzie Tilghmnn and C. E. Evans, In addition lo these there were many people of moderate means who occupied portions of stores as dwellings, and last night were without a roof to cover their, heads. All of their possessions were taken from the houses only to be consumed in the streets. A great portion, of tho stocks in the stores were carried safely from the buildings, but owing to the general confu sion were heaped In places where they wero overtaken by the flames and con sumed. Whole stocks of goods were placed in a brick building which was presumably fire proof, but which soon succumbed, sending up in smoke and flames the goods which were thoHght to be secure. After having raged more than four hours and laying in ashes more than 100 buildings, the flames subsided. Only four stores were left stand ing In the business part of the town, and they were separated from the burning blocks by a wide street. The Insurance com panies within the past three years have suffered many heavy losses in Maryland towns, where most of the buildings are of wood and without properprotectlonagalnst fire. The companies recently cancelled nearly all of their Berlin policies, leav ing the town with only a pittance nf in surance. The losses range from a few hun dred dollars up to $20,000, the aggregate being about $200,000. ALL TOLLED IN. A Hint From Chicago to tho Governor ot Texas. Chicago, August 5.

Aug. 6. Tne Sun says it Is be lieved that Sir Julian Pauncefote, at pres ent British ambassador to the United States, will succeed Sir Edward Malet as ambassador to Germany, If It is true, as reported from London to day, that Sir Julian Pauncefote, British ambassador to the United States, is to suc ceed Sir Edward Malet as ambassador to Germany, the transfer will be in no sense a promotion. Uhe British mission to the United RUtes was advanced to that of an eniba'sy several years ago. Prior to that time Queen Tie- torla had been repreeuted by ambassadors only at Paris, Vienna, Constantinople, Rome, Berlin and Bt. 'Petersburg. Washington now makes the seventh on the list. The salary ot the British ambassador at Washington Is $50,000 a year. He is also furnished, free of expense, the hHi some building -at the corner ot Connecticut avenue and N street, Jn which he and his family reside, and in which also the office of the embassy is located. So far as rank or pay is concerned. Sir Julian has no temptation to leave the United States for auyof the continental capitals. Inasmuch as his salary net is equal to that paid to the British ambassadors at the fore going places. . While it is-true that the complications of European politics mafe- it desirable that Her Majesty5 Ambassador at Berlin should be an astute diplomat, it is equally true that the relations between the United States 'and Great Britain demand the services of a diplomat of the first rank at "Washington". Moreover, these relations are yearly becoming of such a character as to require more careful management on the part of the British Ambassador, and Sir Julian's successor therefore needs be a man ot commanding ability. Sir Julian is personally very popular In the United States. He is held In high esteem by the o-"-cials of the State Department, with whom bis Intercourse Is both frequent and agree able. He has a sincere attachment for the United States, and has repeatedly said that, owing to his lung residence abroad, it was a great satisfaction to be sent t America, where he could hear his own language spoken. The report that he is to be transferred from Washington Is one that occurs annual ly and usually during bis absence from America. "At this time last year, when, as now, be was spending his vacation In Great Britain. It was stated with much posltlveness that he 'would be sent t Con stantinople.

Kellar, a young man from Alliance, Ohio, reported to the police this morn ing that he had been victimized of $5 by a man named Griffin, who bad boarded at No. 717 Tenth etreet northwest. The following advertisement appeared In the want columns of the local papers last Saturday: "Wanted Young man In "office who writes plain and can give cash security; salary, $12 per week. Call, 10 to 11, 717 Tenth street northwest." It was a sufficient inducement to attract a great many applicants, and among others tbo young man whose story first brought the case to the attention ot the police. Ho reported that he called at the number given in the advertisement and was met at the door by a good-looking and well-dressed man, who gave his name as Griffin, aud In dicated a desire to have young Kellar come to his room, where they might, he said, dis cuss their business arrangement more pri vately. - The young man very readily consented to this arrangement, and Griffin, who was a good talker, was not long In entering into the details -of the business he was about to begin. HehadccraeontoWashlng ton, he said, in advaoceot hlsrurtner, who would Join him on Monday, and It was their purpose to shortly open an art storo on F street, the location of which had already been selected. It would bo necessary to have the serv ices of a young man in the office to do tho correspondence of the firm, etc, and that had prompted the advertisement. Heller was finally engaged at the ad vertised salary and told to report to his new employer-at his temporary abode this morning. Ho was told, however, before leaving that It would be necessary for him to deposit $20 as a guarantee of good faith. This he was unable to do, having only a five-dollar note in bis possession, but Griffin, according to Keller, readily assented to take that in lieu ot the amount first required. Kellar called nt the bouse on H street this morning, and on making inquiry for tho stranger was surprised to learn that he bad J taken ins aeparrure. late Saturday nignt without stopping to go through the formal ity of paying tor his board and lodging. The young Westerner, who had parted with the last cent be had In the world, finally realized that be had been the victim of a confideucegame, and lost no time in report ing the matter to the authorities. The house mentioned in the advertisement is a boarding-house. Tho lady who con ducts it was seen- by an Evening Times re porter this morning and said: "The man applied late Friday night for board, and, as Is my custom, I asked him for references, and he showed me a letter from the postmaster ot the town in which ho said he had formerly lived. The letter highly recommended him as a young man of exceptional character and reputation, and on the strength of the letter I assigned him a room In my bouse." She was Ignorant of the fact that he had been working a confidence game In her bouse until after his rather hasty and unceremonious departure, when she learned that she, too, had been a victim of his wiles.

Richard Leach, who will be electrocuted this morning for the murder of his common-law wife, Mary H. Leach, is a young man. He was by occu pation a florist. He met the woman whom he murdered at a resort In Twenty-sixth street. She was no better than the police of that part of the town said -she was. She went to live with Leach. It is said that she was very much In love with him. If she had confined her attentions to him it would have been all right, but unfortu nately she thought more about whisky than she did about him. Leacb.led by Uer.soou fellinto the habit ot drinking too much, and in a fit of drunkenness, It is said, he killed her. The murder took place on December 1 1 , 1894. A little more than a month later. January 16, 1895, Leach's trial began. The de-j reuse was that the woman committed suicide. The Jury, however, found him guilty ot murder in the first degree, and the date ot his execution was fixed by the court. His counsel appealed the case, but the supreme court affirmed the decision reached in the lower court. Leach's case Is remarkable. Inasmuch as his execution takes place within eight months after his crime, an almost unprece dented short time in these days of stays and appeals.

Wha'ey and Harry Taylor, who some timo ago made application for a writ of mandamus against the Secretary of theis'reasury and the Treasurer of the United States to compel tbem to pay a Treasury draft of $17,000. That amount represents the balance due the petitioners on a contract fr the erec tion of two government buildingsat Willett's Point, N. Y. The reason for withholding the draft, it was said, was because the government officials hold that payment should be made in the presence of certain allegedNew York creditors.

New York, Aug. 5 Police Commissioner Roosevelt was probably saved from a sud den and untimely death by the discovery this morning by Miss Daisy James, a cleric in tho general postoffice, of a box addressed to "Theodore Roosevelt, Central Police Office, New York," and supposed to con tain a small dynamite bomb. The package was found among the mall matter In the mail Inspection and rating department, where all fourth-class matter is sorted and examined to see if there la anything objectionable or belonging to a higher class. The attention of Miss James was drawn to the package by Its general appearance and the fact of its being among the news papers and periodicals. The package was about six Inches long, three Inches vide, and one and one-halt Inches deep. She started to pull the cover off when she heard the cracking and snap ping of a match in the box. Smoke came out oflt also andMisg James became much alarmed. A flame appeared. She blew out thl flame and sent for the superintendent of the department. In the box he found a brown tube, which proved to be a shot gun cartridge. It was about Z 1-2 Inches long and evidently loaded. From the cartridge there ran a fuse, which had a coating resembling tallow. On the cover was a piece of sandpaper.
