To Henry B. Stone, Vice-President C. B.

I did not telegraph yesterday as you

our position is—that it should be done
With the authority of the whole Executive
Committee. The company will not fol
low up the black list or in any manner
attempt to proscribe those who were con
cerned in tbe strike, but, on the contrary,
will cheerfully give to all who have not
been guilty of violence or other improper
conduct, letters of introduction showing
their record in our service, and will, in
all proper ways, assist them in find
ing them employment. The first duty 1
of the management is to those who are
in the company's employ, and we must
remember and protect their interests by
promotions and by every other means in
our power. Beyond this, should it be
come necessary to go outside of the ser
vice for men in any capacity, it is our
intention to select the bast men avail
able, and in making selections not to
exclude those who were engaged in the
strike of February 27th, if they are the
best men available, and provided they
have not since been guilty of violence or
other improper conduct. You are au
thorized to give a copy of this message
to the engineers who called upon you.

A Request from tbe Preacher* for
April 30, 1680.
New York, Januaiy 7. —A committee
of clergymen of several denominations
who have been for Borne time assisting
the Executive Committee of the Centen
nial Celebration of Washington's inau
guration, have prepared an address
which will be sent to the ministers and
churches throughout the country. The
address concludes: "On the morn
ing of April 30, 1789, the bells at 9
o'clock summoned the people to the
churches to implore the blessing of
heaven on the nation and its chosen
President. Universal was their religious
sense of the importance of the occasion.
We respectfully and earnestly request
our fellow citizens ef every name, race
and creed of this city and throughout the
entire country, following the ex
ample of our fathers, to meet
in their respective places of worship
at 9 o'clock on the morning of April 30,
1889, and to hold such services of
thanksgiving and praise as may seem
suitable in view of what God has done
for us and our land for the centnry which
has elapsed since George Washington
took the chair of State. Religion and
patriotism have been united among us as
a people from the very beginning; may
they so continue forever.
Democratic Congressmen Oppose tho
Washington, January 7. —About fifty
of tbe Democratic members of the House
met in caucus to-night to consider the
question how to get around the difficulty
in the rules of the House, which has ob
structed legislation the past few days.
Bland, of Missouri, embodied his views
in a resolution declaring it to be the sense
of the caucus that the resolution pending
in the House should be defeated, but
that on the first and third Mon
days of each month no dila
tory tactics should be resorted
to in order to prevent the passage of a
measure under a suspension of the rules.
After considerable discussion Springer
raised the point of order that no quorum
was voting, and that less than a quorum
could not bind the Democrats who were
absent or who were present and opposed
the resolution. Cox said he had never
heard of the point of no quorum being
raised in a caucus. After some further
debate the resolution was adopted.

There was a full attendance at the
regular meeting of the Indianapolis
Ministerial Association to-day. It had
been expected that something would be
said about the Presidential inaugural
ball, but the subject was very lightly
touched upon. Dr. Lucas read the paper
of the day, in which, referring to the
inaugural ball, he said: "Those who
favor the ball ought not to say those who
oppose it are Puritanical; neither ought
those who oppose the ball say the other

The Haytiens Are Bad Gunners.
Boston, January 7. —The steamer Wil
liam Coulman arrived yesterday from
Port-au-Prince, Hayti, having succeeded
in running out despite the hostile dem
onstrations on the part of Legitime's
§nnboats. Captain Scott said the
ay before he left a Haytien gunboat
had fired on a North German
Lloyd steamer which was on her regular
course and flying tbe German flag. He
thinks Legitime will hear from Bismarck
ere long. In speaking of the Haytiens
as gunners, the Captain said: "I was
down at Port Haytien when one of our
warships ran down and shelled the town.
One hundred and one shots were fired
and only one struck, which lodged in the
wharf in front of the town."

this evening and assured him they would
cordially and actively support his candi

A Row Retween Artist* Iv High
London, January 7. —Artist Stott, who
resided principally in Paris, created a
hubbub of excitement in the rooms of
the Hogarth Club, Wednesday night by
denouncing his brother artist, Whistler
as a liar and a coward. Whistler gave
a very prompt evidence of the
disapproval of such language,
and after administering some rather se
vere blows on Stoti's head, reports say
he kicked the offender out of the room.
Artist Whistler subsequently wrote a
humorous letter to the club committee
giving the facts attending the case,
and claiming that tbe measures he had
adopted would prevent in future members
of the club being made subject to insults.
A rumor of a duel between the two gen
tlemen is prevalent. Stott's grievance is
understood to be that he was unfairly
treated by Whistler when that gentle
man was President of the Royal Society
of British Artists.
Severe weather is reported in the Black
Sea during the past forty-eight hours.
Many sailing vessels have been wrecked
and over 100 seamen lost their lives.

cibles are planning to murder him.
The mansion of Hon. Percy Sea wen
Wyndhini burned last night. The chil
dren of the Lady of Elcho, Wyndham's
daughter, were rescued in their night
gowns. Lord Stalbridge directed the fire
men. The pictures and plate were saved.
The Daily Telegraph's correspondent at
St. Petersburg gives the forecast of the
Russian Budget. He says it will be one
of tbe best Russia has had in a long
time and will probably show a surplus of
from $20,000,000 to $25,000,000. It will
also prove that the rumors of great
preparations for war in Russia are un

Forgeries on the Part of D. C. Wick-
nam tbe Alleged Cause.
San Francisco, January 7. —Decker C.
Wickbam, recently doing business under
the title of the Locks pring Mattress Com
pany, was arrested this evening on a
complaint sworn to by Cashier Rams
den, of the Suspended Califor
nia National Bank, who charges
ihat Wickham has defrauded
that institution out of nearly
three thousand dollars at various times
by means of forged papers, and that
when he failed in November last the
bank was his creditor to the amount of
nearly forty thousand dollars, less than
50 per cent, of which he recovered
from his assets. It was the
investigation of Wickham's irregularities
which, it is stated, led to the discoveries
which closed the doors of the hank a
short time ago. The particular offense
with which he is charged is tbe forging
of a bill of three months' acceptance
for $311, signed in the name of F. H.
Wilt, of Fresno, dated May 24,1888. The
paper was cashed by the bank, but inves
tigation showed there was no F. H. Wilt
at Fresno, though a furniture dealer, of
that name resided at Visalia.

Associated Press Dispatches to the Hkbald.l
Seattle, W. T., January 7.—Alfred
Shofford, a Bohemian, fired a heavy
charge of giant powder under the house
of George Bodayla, at Gilman, thirty
miles eastof Seattle, early this morning,
instantly killing John and Mabel Survik
and the 9 year-old child of Bodayla, and
badly injurying Bodayla,- his wife and
little son and daughter. Lost spring
Bodayla caused the arrest of Shofford, on
the charge of criminal assault upon his
wife. Shofford was sentenced a short
time to imprisonment in the County
Jail, and when he was released he made
such serious threats against the life of
Bodayala that he was again
arrested and incarcerated in ail.
After his release he returned to Gilman,
i.nd since then he made numerous threats
against Bodayla.who made arrangements
to remove to San Francisco. Bodayla
got the two Survik brothers to stop with
him. At 4:30 this morning Shofford
fired the giant powder and utterly demol
ished the house. Shofford was found at
his own house after theexplosion. Every
indication pointing to bim as the perpe
trator of the deed, he was placed under
arrest, and later upon the arrival of the
Sheriff he was turned over to tbat
officer. This afternoon while the
Sheriff was at dinner, a crowd
of fifty broke open the house
where Shofford was confined, took him
to a tree and hanged him up, first trying
to induce him to confess. He refused
and was hanged up. After thirty seconds
he was taken down and given another
chance. Still declining he was again
elevated and cut down for the second
time. He was then very weak, and
efforts to make him divulge were still
fruitless and ho was hanged for the third
and last time. No effort at concealment
was made by tbe mob.

Notoriety In Samoa.
San Francisco, January 7. —It is be
lieved here that Mr. Klein, who is men
tioned in the dispatch from Berlin, as
having led a party of Mataafa'a adher

was there only in the discharge of his
duties as a newspaper correspondent,
and was not taking part in the conflict.
