Washington, March 6. —Ex-President
and Mrs. Cleveland left Washington for
New York at 11 o'clock, accompanied by
Mrs. Folsom. ex-Postmaster-General and
Mrs. Dickinson, Colonel and Mrs. La
mont and family. Ex-Secretary and
Mrs. Fairchild escorted them to the sta
tion, where they were met by all the
members of the retiring Cabinet and
families. The party was recognized by
the people in the station, and Cleveland
wao cheered until he disappeared.
New York, March G.—President Cleve
land and party arrived at Jersey City at
G o'clock this evening. Owing to the do
sire of Mr. Cleveland to avoid tho crowd
at tho depot the train was side-trackod at
Bergen Point for over an hour before com
ing up to the station. This device failed,
however, as the crowd waited. When
the train arrived there was a grand
crush, and as Mr. and Mrs. Cleveland
walked down the platform the people
crowded around them, cheering loudly,
and followed them to their carriages. Po
licemen in vain attempted to stay the
people. Mrs. Cleveland smiled as if
pleased by the warm reception and Mr.
Cleveland several times touched his
hat. When the two finally entered their
carriage and stood waiting for the other
members of the party, a man proposed
three cheers and a tiger for Grover
Cleveland. They were given with a will,
as were three for Mrs. Cleveland. Then
followed three and a tiger for Daniel
Lainont. Thay were then driven to tho
Victoria Hotel.
Mr. Cleveland looked sick. His eyes
did not have the brightness of health.
His skin was leaden and lifeless. There
was a great difference between the
blooming young woman and the man by
her side.
The arrival at the hotel was at 8:45 P.
m. Mr. and Mrs. Cleveland immediately
retired to their ro'.;m, which was found
proiueely decorated with flowers sent by
intimate friends. Early to-morrow
morning Mr. Cleveland will be at his
desk in the law oflice on William street.
Rough on the Hawkshaw*.
Chicago, March G.—At tho funeral
services, to-day, of Newton Watt, who
died in Joliet prison while serving a life
sentence for complicity in the Rock
Island express robbery, Rev. Dr. Cald
well created a mild sensation by saying
to the assemblage of mourners: "We
believe Newton Watt was innocent.
His accusers were, almost all, either
professional criminals or professional de
tectives, and I consider the two terms
very nearly synonymous." The pastor
spoke rather bitterly of several experi
ences he had had with detectives, which
gave him additional ground for this opin
ion. He added: "The reward offered
in this case was enough to convict any
one whom the detectives might select."
The reward referred to was $10,000.

time's forces won a signal victory in the
provinces of the North and had driven
the rebels back all along the line. There
was no executions, because Lagitime did
not wish to alienate any of his country
men by harsh measures. Hypolite's
forces were driven back. The purser
said that reports that several of Legi-
Generals and many of his soldiers
had been massacred were sent out by
Hypolite. Legitime has all the navy

night at the same place when departing.
The friend says Moore denied hia identity
when reaching Chicago, but admitted it
as he was leaving. Moore is represented
as apparently standing in much fear of

Washington, March 6.—The display
! of deforred fire—works from the monu
', ment grounds to-night was undoubtedly
; the most brilliant ever witnessed in
Washington. Tho exhibition began with
the illumination of Pennsylvania avenuo
. from the Treasury Department to the
, Capitol, a distance of over one mile, by
means of magnesium suns. The night
was uncommonly dark, and the great
white shaft of Washington's monument
afforded a back ground the peer of which
! can hardly be found in the world. Tha
first set piece displayed was large por
traits of President Harrison and Vice-
Presidont Morton, framed in brilliant
colors and renting upon an easel. So
lifislike were these portraits that at the
distance of one mile each was readily
Following these came marvelous fount
ains of sparkling electric stars, myriads
of flying rockets in every conceivable
forms, bombs which, bursting hundreds
of feet up in tho air, discharged thous
ands of smaller ehells, which in turn
exploded, producing a grandly beautiful
effect, and then bonfires of colored light,
which, reflecting its rays upon the great
white obelick, transformed into a shaft
of burnished bras?, and again into one of
garnet, and then of emerald or sapphire,
while the towering structure was vividly
outlined against a sky of intense black.
Another set piece pictured was the front
of the White House. Every detail cf
pillar and capitol, window and carved
cornice, appeared with perfect distinct
The last of the set pieces represented
the Capitol. The closing scene of the
exhibition was indeed a gorgeously bril
liant one. Tens of thousands of blue
rockets, exploded by electricity, shot up
from tha base of the monument to its
sumiiiit; thousands of others in yellow,
scarlet, green, purple and garnet, fol
lowed in quick succession, until the
whole sky was aflame with scintillating
stars of wondrous hues. This great
eruption continued for some time.

former assessment is invalid or void, and ,'
in relation to the collection of tuxes in
said re-aesessments, came up on special 1
order, and Ostrom spoke in favor of its
passage. He said the bill waß
drawn up by a committee of <
the State Grange. Dibble spoke against ,
the bill, and claimed that as it <
would allow the re-assessment of property ]
for years back, it is a dangerous measure. ,
Renison, of Monterey, said he was op- |

it would, reach everybody but corpora

San Francisco, March 6.—The State
■ Prison investigation continued to-night.
Ex-State Prison Director S:rivner was
, shown letters alleged to have been writ
ten by himself, and acknowledged their
authorship. The letter in which tho
1 writer declared he would "stand the hoys
i off no longer," was read, and Mr.
i Scrivener said he |moant just what
,is suggested; that many of his
friends were desirous of securing places.
' Concerning the third letter, in which ref
-1 erence was made to the syndicate,witnets
said that certain dissensions had sprung
up in the Board, and Luttroll, Sonntag
and himself being appointees, the Gov
ernor thought it their duty to sustain
McComb and the Governor in any legi'i
mato way. Senator White: "In other
words, you three directors,with McComb,
agreed to band together to run prisons?"
Scrivener: "That's practically it."g
Scrivener said that the Governor knew
of this aud that they told him whenever
they could not conscientiously carry cut
his views tlieiy would give way and let
him appoint somebody else.
Scrivener said that the alleged audit
ing of bills by the prison directors is
a farce. They take the Warden's state
ments for all the items and know abso
lutely nothing regarding the financial
affairs of the prisons. In fact, tho wit
ness said that the prison commissioners
are an utterly useless body. He be
lieved it would be an advantage to the i
management of the prisons if tlie board
of directors were abolished.
Director SoDntag said he believed the
Prison Directors very necessary to the
management of prisons. Witness de
nied that lie had ever received a cent as 1
commission in purchasing jute, and said 1
tho man who made the accusation knew
he was lying. i

that the treaty of commerce between
America and Japan provides for the ad
mission of Americans to entire com

return for America's resigning, for

a doubt whether "the favored nation"
clauses of the older treaties do not pre
vent Japan from enlarging American
