to Mr. lYaite.
Melville W. Fuller, of Chicago,
Receives the Appointment.
MELVILLE W. FTLLER.
.Tte President has nominated Melville TV.
Fuller, of Chicago, to be Chief Justice of the
United States. Mr. Fuller is a native of
Maine and is a grandson of ex-Chief Justice
Weston of that State. He has, however,
been a resident of Illinois for many years,
and has obtained a prominent place at
the bar of Chicago. He is a personal
friend of the President, and is well known in
Washington from his frequent visits on
business before the Supreme Court. He was
not an applicant, and has not been in Washington
since the death of Chief Justice
It was known that .President Uieveiana
held Mr. Fuller in the very highest estimation
long before there was any thought of his
name in connection with the exalted office for
which he has been named.
The President had in every possible way
tried to secure Mr. Fuller's services in some
office within his gift He asked him to be
Solicitor General of the Department of Justice.
He wanted him to give bis ability as a
member of the Civil Service Commission,
the Interstate Commerce Commission or
the Pacific Railroad Commission. To all the
President's offers Mr. Fuller replied respectfully
declining any of the proposed
honors. He said his preferences were wholly
as an active member of his profession and as
such he could not indulge in political preferment.
This only served to increase Mr.
Cleveland's esteem for him, until at last he
offers him the greatest honor within the gift
of the President of the United States.
In politics he is bast described as an old
school Democrat He believes in an advanced
<, doctrine of States rights and advocates a
simple government. He is a member of the
Urkiconnol PKnroVi onrl hoc KoAll
prominently identified with that organization,
and has been conspicuous in the Cheney
and other famous ecclesiastical trials.
Mr. Fuller's Career.
Mr, Melville Weston Fuller was born in
Augusta, on Feb. 11, lSS'i His father was
Frederick A. Fuller; his mother Catherine
' Martin, daughter of Chief Justice Nathan
Weston. Melville W. fitted for college in Augusta
and graduated at Bowdoin in the class
of 1853, his classmate being E. J. Phelps, our
Minister to England. Mr. Fuller, after
leaving college, began the study of law at
Bangor. After attending lectures in the law
department of Harvard University he began
the practice of his profession in Augusta in
185&, While waiting for clients he acted as
editor of the Age ana won hit spurs in journalism.
Feeling that his true field of work
was the law, and realizing that his native
city did not afford that scope or
effort which he stood in need of.
Mr. Fuller went to Chicago. There he did
not have to wait long for practice. His
Ability was speedily recognized and properly
rewarded. For thirty years he has enjoyed a
lucrative practice, and has won distinction
among the foremost at the Illinois Bar. Inl861
he was elected a member of the State Constitutional
Convention. In 1862 he was chosen to
the Legislature, and although a Democrat running
each time in a strong Republican district,
he was victorious by large majorities. He
-was a delegate to the Democratic National
conventions of 1864,1872,1876 and 1880. In
1860 he was selected by the citizens to deliver
the address of welcome to Stephen A. Douglas.
In 1858 Mr. Fuller married Calista 0.
Reynolds, and,after her decease,Mary Ellen,
daughter of the distinguished banker, Will
iam F. Coolbaugh. He has eight daughters.
Id his practice in the Supremo Court of the
United States Mr. Fuller has repeatedly
come in contact, both as a colleague and as
an opponent, with Messrs. Edmunds, Tburman,
Hoadly, Ingersoll and other admittedly
great lawyers. He is familiar with the decisions
of that Court and well informed is the
history of our country, and especially
in constitutional questions. Not content
with the vast amount of reading and
writing, which of necessity results from the
active practice of his profession, Mr. Fuller
has had an immense amount of miscellaneous
reading and considerable writing by way of

Over Three Thousand Natives
Killed by Poisoned Water,
An account of an alleged poisoning of a

The story shows that Bueno has already poissoned
3800 Indians and was meditating the
murder of 5030 more.
The Sao Faulo weekly, the Paulista, of
Taubate, a Brazilian newspaper says:
The worthy Bishop of Goyaz has engaged
several missionaries and acquired books for
the purpose of teaching ana converting cao
Indians of our backwoods. Little did we
think that at Paranapanema a certain
Senbor Joaquin Bueno was also
carrying out a conversion of a different
kind among the Guaymus Indians, surrounded
with the greatest horrors. A
person recently arrived from the west, who
deserves our entire confidence, heard Senhor
J. Bueno himself relate in the presence of the
Municipal Judge of Lencoes and of other
persons the following exploits achieved by
him against the poor Indians:
Bueno, who resides at Sao Jose dos Campos
Novos, stated that he had under his orders
about seventy people employed in the persecution
and extermination of the Indians.
Some days ago thev attacked a village and put

when all are counted, the number of the inhabitants
contained in each village can be
ascertained when they are absent.
Around each of these villages there are

Aa soon as the assailants found themselves
in possession of the village, being furnished
with a considerable amount ot strychnine,
they set about poisoning all the wells containing
water, win9 and provisions, and after
putting into execution this treacherous deed
withdrew without touching anything elsa
Some days afterward Bueno ana his followers
returned to the villajre.and even from
a distance comprehended the horror of the
sight from clouds of crows hovering over the
site of the crime, where they found stark and
scattered SOOO corpses.
The crimes do not end hera. Days afterward
they attacked and exterminated another
village of eight hundred Indians on
which occasion, having no strychnine, they
made use of sublimated mercury in the same
manner, poisoning the deposit? of water,
wine and provisions, and at the time of speaking
they were preparing to attack another
village of five thousand Indiana.

MIGHTY WAR VESSELS.
Launch of a Dynamite Crniser
and the Gunboat Yorktown.
A New Era Begun in American
There have been many launches of big and
little ships, iron and wooden, in years gone
by at Cramp's shipyard, in Philadelphia, bnt
never in the history of the city was so mnch
excitement created as the dual launch on
Saturday of the dynamite cruiser Vesuvius
and the gunboat Yorktown.
What made it particularly notable wai
that it is the first launching for years of a
war vessel there, that there were two ships
to slide into the water and that Congress
would be in town to witness the event.
At noon the excursion steamer Columbia,
| captain ueorge lyier, Jay at me pier ai iuo
foot of Washington street, adjacent to the
old Navy Yard of blessed memories. She
had been chartered by the Secretary of the
Navy to convey his Congressional party from
the cars to Cramp's yard. The steamer was
gayly decked out in bunting, and after receiving
her cargo of distinguished people,
took up a good position in view of the event.
Strange to say, on the Columbia there were
106 members of the House of Representatives,
which is three more than is necessary
for a quorum.
At three o'clock the Yard Superintendent
reported everything ready for the launch
and Mr. Charles Cramp gave the command,
with the consent of the Secretary of the
Navy, to "Let go the breaks''of the Yorktown.
Whack, whack, sounded the mauls as
the men struck the chunks away, and just as
this big iron hull began to slide riverward Miss
May Cameron, daughter of Senator Cameron,
of Pennsylvania, whacked the gunboat over
her no3e with a bottle of champagne, held by
red, white and blue ribbons. It broke and as
the wine spilled all down over the ship's rigid
iron and paint, this lovely girl said: "I
baptize thee Yorktown." The Yorktown began
to move at six and a half minutes past
three o'clock, and floated gracefully on the
Delaware within a minute.
Hardly had the excitement over the first
event subsided when it broke out afresh over
the dynamite cruiser, which lay on its ways,
near the place the Yorktown had left. Mites
F.lflnnnr HrAMrinriHtrA. rifliichtpr of f!nngrefiS
man Breckinridge, of Kentucky, performed
the christening function for the dyna?ite
cruiser, as Miss Cameron had for the gunboat.
As she broke the bottle over her bow
this Blue Gras3 belle exclaimed, "I baptize
thee Vesuvius." This was indeed news to
even the Secretary's intimate friends, as be
had kept it a secret till, at the last moment,
be handed Miss Breckinridge his official order
to call the cruiser Vesuvius. The Vesuvius
glided graceful on her element four minutes
after the Yorktown.
The dynamite cruiser Vesuvius has a length
of 246 feet, with a beam of 26 feet 6 inches;
her mean draught is 8% feet on the plans
and her displacement 700 tons. Her engines
will be of the latest triple expansion type,
with twin screws, designed for 3500 horse
power, which is expected to give a speed of
twenty knots per hour. There will be four
cylindrical locomotive boilers, 160 pounds
steam each. She is very lightly built, but
firmly put together, and win trust to ner
speed and shallow draught to choose her own
time for fighting.
She will have three dynamite guns, fiftyfour
feet in length, fixed in position side by
side, and they will really be built into the
ship. They will project above the deck at an
angle, and the shells to be thrown by them
will weigh 20 J pounds. In firing the guns it
will be necessary to move the vessel in taking
aim. The officers' quarters will be right
| aft, while the crew will berth forward in the
usual manner, the midships of the boat being
taken up with the appliances for loading ana j
firing the guns, machinery, coal space and
stores. The gallery and conning tower are
on the upper deck. The success of the dynamite
cruiser has been and will be watched
and waited for with deep interest Its success
simply means the revolutionizing of naval

commonly called, "Gunboat No. 1," is an unarmored

Her length is 230 feet, beam 3# feet.
with a draught of water ol about 13 ieet rorward
and 15 feet aft There will be twin
screws, with triple expansion engines of the
latest improved type, designed for a horse
power of 2200 with natural and 3300 with
forced draught, and it is expected that she
will make a speed of seventeen knots. It
carries four pneumatic gu n9 for the hurling
of dynamite projectiles, each with a range of
at least a mile. The training of the guns is
accomplished by steering the vessel, and
the loading is all done by steam.
The guns are of 15-iuch calibre, and the |
shells, which can be fired with great accuracy
twice a minute, will contain COO pounds of
explosive gelatine, equivalent to 852 pounds
of dynamite, or 043 pounds of guu
cotton. It is claimed that this gun. properly
bandied, will be the most destructive engine
of war vet invented, for the heaviest
armored ships in the world will go all to
pieces from the explosion of a shell much
smaller than those thrown by the guns on
The conning tower will be armored with
two inch steel plates, and will be on the forecastle.
The Captain's quarters will be under
the quarter deck,as will also the armory and
a room devoted to the torpedoes. Speaking
tubes and telegraphic, arrangements will
enable the officer and pilot to communicate
with those below. There wiJI also be a complete
electric light plant, with two sets of

the farms situated on the water so as to get
salt air experienced small damages, but in the
back country of Norfolk, Princess Ann and
Nansemond counties, the potato vines were cut

TOWED BY A WHALE.
Remarkable Adventure of a Gloucester
I- ishiug Schooncr.
A letter has been received from the cook
of the schooner H. B. Griffin,Captain George
Nelson, of Gloucester, Mass., now on a trip
for salt cod on the Banks, in which a very
strange occurrence is narrated.
She arrived on the Banks a few weeks ago
and found fish exceedingly plenty. One day,
which was moderately fine, and while the
crew were all out in their dories attending
their trawls, the captain and cook remained
aboard, as is customary, the sails being reefed
and the vessel at anchor, the two occupants

the vessel was going through the water at a
rapid rate. They rushed on deck to find the
cause of the commotion, but none was discovered
until suddenly a large whale came to
the surface to blow, w'ith the anchor attached
to his side. The marine monster had evidently
been swimming near the bottom of
the ocean, where be became attached to the
fluke of the anchor.
Once on the surface the maddened whale
tore through the water at a frantic rate, so
fast as to nearly submerge the bows. The
captain saw that they were rapidly losing
sight of their crew in the dories and would
leave them alone on the ocean, so lie cut the
cable and freed the vaeseL The jibs and foresail
were hoisted, and they returned and
secured their crew, who had filled their dories
with finny freight. The vessel was put on
the course for Newfoundland, where a new
cable and anchor have been secured.

A PAPAL DECREE, M
A Letter Issued from Rome Against H?
the Irish Plan of Campaign. ^B
The statement that the Pope has lamed ft H
decree condemning the plan of campaign in HH
Ireland is confirmed. A Papa! letter says he BH
does so because he is convinced that the plan
of campaign is illegaL He says ho is als? Hfl
convinced that the land courts will redou a&
unfair rents. Another circumstance that
influenced him, he says, is the fact that fund* [
are extorted from contributors to the plan. ^B
The Pope condemns boycotting as a practice ^B
contrary to justice and charity. B
The Dublin Freeman's Journal urges the ^Hj
people to exercise calmness and patience, and ^B
to receive the Papal decree with profound
respect and loyalty to Rome. It declares Bfl
that boycotting is rare. The Nationalists B
have determined to continue the plan of camr ^B
paign in 6pite of the Papal decree. It is asserted
that the movement will not suffer '^B
much from the necessary defection of the
priests, who will undoubtedly continue w
sympathize with the people, and that
the vacancies can easily be filled I
with laymen. The matter has caused HB
an extremely bitter feeling among-.
the Nationalists. Mr. Dillon, in a speech at H
Herbertstown, Ireland, pointed out til* H
justice of the plan of campaign.the results of
which, he said, fully justified the wisdom ^Hj
of the League in recommending it The H|
whole ground for the Nationalist policy ww Htf
the fact that an Irish tenant could not make
a contract with his landlord: that freedom
of contract did not exist. He denied em- kH|
phaticallr that the plan of catnpaigh funds I
were^ obtained by^force and ^ntimidatlon,
says: ^?he Papal letter has already beep B
sent to the Irish Bishops and will be put* Bh
lished soon. The Pope forbids Catholics
to adopt the plan of campaign or to engage
in boycotting and enjou^ obedience to H|
the laws. Other questions are in abeyance."
The London Post thinks that the Fope'a ao- :Sfl
tion is by far the most formidable blow ret IB
struck at the Nalionalists. The London
Standard savs: "That the Papal decree w:U m
do good cannot be doubted, but that, it wiD- HH
extirpate the evil can scarcely be hoped."
