E Mayor Gourley Thinks Ho Have Supervision Over the City Departments. Should All HE "WILL MAKE A HOT FIGHT FOE IT Provided the Governor Is InfluencedEnough by His Letter to Tcto the Supplement Act. WANTS MOR POWER y. SOME FIREWOEKS BEFOEE THE FOEETE. Stnator Flicn Bays a Man Has a Eight to Be a Ee ftrmer if He Chooses. Mayor Gourley rants more power. He feels that he should have more to say about the city government than he is at present allowed. Before he gets it, or before he is satisfied that he cannot get it, there will be some 'lively times about CityHalL The hatchet has been unearthed and war is in evitable. Both sides have thrown up their intrenchments and trained their batteries on each other's strongholds. "What the out come will be is hard to determine. It will depend very much on whether or not Gov ernor Pattison signs the bill defining the powers of the chiefs of departments. If the bill is etoed there will be fireworks be fore the Fourth ol TtJy. If it becomes a law the 3Iaj or will fail to secure what he desires. The Mayor believes that the. chiefs of de partments should not be allowed entire control of their portions of the city govern ment, and that Councils never gave to him the power over these departments granted in thecitycharter. Section 81 of the charter reads: The Mayor shall have gcnteWi supervision of all the departments, w ith power to direct their officers within their duties, under tlie law and ordinances. Major Gourlej'g Wttlo Hatchet. This is the weapon His Honor proposes to shake at his opponents in his fight for power. He wants supen isio of the.departmcnts therefore the fatn&ls letter to Goernor Pattison. The letter was written over two weeks ago and has been on file since then. In speaking of the matter yesterday the Maj or.said: "The city charter does not intend that chiefs of departments shall be responsible to nobody for their acts. It provides that, the Mayor shall have general supervision over all departments but there is nothing to signify what that supervision means. Councils in making up the charter ordi nance should have designated what the Mayor's pou crs are in relation to the de partments. Up to this time thi only con nection the Mayor has ha'l with the de partments has been to recei -a their annual reports. That coull hardly be called 'gen eral supervision.' " "If the Governor declines to sigh the supplement to the charter do you intend to do anything on this matter?" "Most assuredly I do. I will find out just what powers are granted to the Mayor under the charter and will see what can be done. In regard to the statement that I proposed to take personal charge of Chief Brown's department, all I have to say is that I never made such a statement. The Tolnt Made by His Honor. "My point is that the chiefs of depart ments should be responsible to somebody, and the charter intended it should be to the Mayor, who should have power to enforce certain things in connection with their operations. For this reason I am opposed to the supplement conferring more powers on the chiefs. Councils should be the bodies to regulate the duties of the chiefs. It is wrong for the Legislature to do this." Everybody is on the anxious seat over the prospects of a battle. All eyes are turned on the Executh e at Harrisburg, as the fight depends on Ins decision. There were sev eral sensational rumors about City Hall jesterday, one of which was that Mayor Gourley "was being backed by Senator Quay in his attack on his Re epublican colleagues. This the Jfavor denied emphatically, and nobody could be found who knew anything definite about it Senator Plinn returned from Harribburg yesterday morning. He is apparently not greatly agitated over the attack ot the Slayor, and smiled when approached about it. Has No right With the Maj or. "I have jo fight with Mayor Gourley," said he, "and do not propose to have any. Ihaeno time for fighting. His Honor seems to hae plenty of leisure for it, though, and it would be wrong to disturb him. He was part and parcel of what he styles the 'ring' for 15 years, but now he has become a reformer, which is a privilege of his. In this country every man, lias some privileges, you know." "How about the w ithdrawal of the charter amendment?" "It was withdrawn on the aduce ofat tornevs, as it contained more than one sub ject"" City Attorney Jlorcland has no fear about the position of the chiefs. He said: "The Supreme Court has said their posi tions are correct I do not believe there is the least doubt about the chiefs holding their positions as already decided by the court. ,v Chief Bigelow declines to discuss the sit uation. He docs not seem to be greatly dis turbed. Chief Brown says he is still Chief of the Department of Public Safety, and proposes to remain so until the end of his term.

Grand Blaster Sweeny Says the Men Will ITin in the End. CKICAGO.MaylS. GrandMaster Sweeny, of the Switchmen's Mutual Aid Associa tion, in regard to the discharge of switch men by the Chicago and Northwestern Kail Toad Company, said: "This is not a lockout now; it is a strike. Nothing but passenger trains are moving, and tho&e only by the aid of trainmen whose order Feems to have an understanding with the officials. No freight trains will move, for it is beyond the power of the road to se cure experienced help. AVe will win the fight as we hac won others." General Manager "Whitman is constantly in receipt of telegrams from all points on this system, and without exception they re port an encouraging state of affairs. At scene places the work is being done by a less number of men and switch engines than usual, but it is being done, and the trainmen wherever called upon are proving their loyalty to the company by doing switching duty in addition to their own.

The Lover of a Mountain of Flesh Refuses to. Testify Against Her. 3Tew York, May 15. John French is the lean boarder in Josephine Williams' board ing house at Ko. 33 Bayard street. Mrs., "Williams and her two daughters also appear on the museum stage. Mrs. "Williams is known as Mme. Mozelle Cordini, "the greatest living moun tain of flesh," and is advertised as weighing 700 pounds. Candidly speaking, she weighs about 350 pounds. Her two daughters are known as Zella and Josephine, and they jointly tip the scales at GOO pounds. Some months ago Mrs. Williams' son Charles stole from his sister Josephine and attempted snicide while in a cell in police headquarters. She did not prosecute him. The boarder French is a man of fastidious habits. He put a clean handkerchief in his closet on "Wednesday night, and afterward saw it in Charles' possession. There was a quarrel and Josephine took the part of her brother, notwithstanding that the boarder was her suitor. In the struggle French was stabbed in the back and caused the arrest of Charles. The latter was arraigned at the Tombs Police Courr yesterday, where Josephine appeared as a witness in her brother's behalf. "It was I who stabbed him," she ex plained. "He won't make no complaint against me. John loves me." She was cor rect in her judgment. He had no desire to prosecute. Charles was disckasged. THE EXPORT OF GOLD. It Is Used for the Purpose, It la Said, of Depressing the Stock Markets. NewXoek, May 18. In regard to the exports of gold the JVwf, in its financial ar ticle.iays: "There is still an apparent de sire in some quartern to create a mystery about the gold exports. The news bulletins in the street this morning report 'one ex change house' as saying it is an open secret that the gold is needed by large interests on the other side, whoire convert ing securities and property into cash as rap idly as the markets of the world will per mit.' Another foreign exchange house is reported as saying: The outward move ment of gold would be checked if the money rate here advanced, but this rate Is kept down by people interested in getting the gold. "When the demands for gold are met, there is likely to be a sharp advance in the money here,' and nnaiiy tins ambiguousness was condensed in another bulletin which said: 'Foreign houses and people having foreign connec tions were quite pronounced bears, declar ing the situation abroad to be worse, and hinting at unfavorable news of importance liable to transpire.' "All of this hinting "and ambiguity always have such a decided depressing ef fect on price 3 of stock that it looks as though this ambiguous 'news' might have been invented for that purpose." COAST DEFENSE AT B0ST0K. Oa Tort "Warren Is Being Greatly Im proved and Strengthened. Boston, May 15. Fort "Warren, on Gal lup's Island, eight miles down the harbor, is being impnn ed.

An Iowa Shipper Who Can EecoverJTrom the Northwestern Road. Dxs Moines, May 15. Judge Shiras, of the Federal Court, rendered an important decision under the inter-State commerce lavr to-day. The plaintiffs were grain shippers of Carroll, la., and the defendant the Chi cago and Northwestern Railway Company. The plaintiffs claimed they were charged 19 cents per 100 pounds of grain shipped to Chicago, while shippers at Blair, Neb., had an 11-cent rate for the same dis tance. The Judge ruled that the rate was in violation of the inter-State law and the plaintiffs have the right to recover the dif ference between the rates, and also interest on the money paid in excess of the Ne braska rate. A large number of similar cases are still pending and the same de cision will no doubt be given. BBITISH COLUMBIA LEPERS. The Disease So Threatening That a Colony Is Being Established.
