I Associated Press Dispatches to the Herald. I
Washington, March 22.—Anions the
President's callers to-day were Senator
Mitchell, with Judge Mcßiide, oi Utah,
and L. B. Mizner, of California.
When the Senate meets to-morrow a
large batch of nominations will probably
be received from the President. The
announcement cf the death of Justice
Matthews brought about the adjourn
ment of the Senato to-day, while Execu
tive Secretary Pruden was standing at
the door waiting to bo recognized. He
had with him an envelope the bulk of
which indicated a large number of nom
inations. Among them, according to
general report, was that of Corporal
Tanner, of Brooklyn, to be Commis
sioner of Pensions.
Secretary Noble, after leaving the
Cabinet meeting this afternoon, said
the President would sign the Okolahoma
proclamation this afternoon. If not
signed to-day he felt confident it would
be to-morrow.
The following proclamation was issued
late this afternoon:
By the President of the United States of
America: A Proclamation.
The following provisions of the laws of
the United States are hereby published
for the information of all concerned :
Section 1 056, Revised Statute, chapter
8, title 28, enacts that no person shall
kill any otter, mink, marten, sable, or
fur seal, or other fur-bearing animal
within the limits of Alaska Territory, or
in the water thereof; and every person ,
guilty thereof, shall, for each offence be
fined not less than $200, nor more than \
$1 ,000, or imprisonment not more than \
six months, or both, and all vessels,
their tackle, apparel furniture and cargo
found engaged in the violation of this
section shall be forfeited ; but the Secre- ,
tary of the Treasury shall have power to j
authorize the killing of any such mink, (
marten, sable or other fur-bearing ani- f
mal, except fur-seala, under such regula- ,
tions as he may prescribe, and it shall be ,
the duty of the Secretary to prevent the c
killing cf any fur-seal, and to provide for :
the execution of the provisions of this -
section until it is otherwise provided by *
law, nor shall he grant any special priv
ilege under this section.
Section :s of tho act, entitled "an ~c t i
to provide fcl ihe protection 0 f the 5
flalmOtl ÜBherleß of Alaska," approved i
March 2, 1839.., provides that: Section "
3: That section 1,058 of the Revised '
Statutes of the United States is hereby '
declared to include and apply to all the f
dominion of the United States in the I
waters of Behring Sf a, and it shall be (
the duty of the President at a timely sea- '
son in each year to issue his proclarca- '
tion, and cause the same to be published '
for one month at least in one newspaper
(if any such there be) published at
each of tbe United States port of the <
entry on the Pacific Coast, warning all (
persons against entering such waters for j
the purpose of violating the provisions of f
said section, and he shall also cause one
or more vessels of the United States to
diligently cruise said waters and arrest
all persons and seize all vessels found to '
be, or to have been engaged in violation !
of the laws of the United States therein. '
"Now, therefore, I, Benjamin Harri- ,
son, President of the United States, pur
suant to the above-recited statutes. ,
hereby warn all persons against entering
the waters of Behring Sea, within the
dominion of the United States, for the ;
purpose of violating the provisions of
•aid section 1,956, Revised Statutes, and
I hereby proclaim that all persons found
to bo engaged in any violation of the '
laws of the United States in said waters,
will be arrested and punished as above
provided, and that all vessels so em- '
ployed, their tackle, apparel, furniture
and cargoes will be soized and forfeited.
In testimony whereof, I have hereunto
set my hand and caused the seal of tbe
United States to be af&xed.
Done at the city of Washington this
twenty-first day of March, one thousand,
eight hundred and eighty-nine, and of
the independence of the United States
one hundred and thirteenth.

James G. Blame, Seretary of State.
Washington. March 22. —Secretary
Tracy defined his intentions in the mat
ter of retaining or reinstating the navy
yard employees in the Bureau of Yards
and Docks in the Washington navy yard
as follows:
"I have your letter of the 19th instant
concerning your discharge from the posi
tion of Clerk in the Bureau of Yards and
Docks in the Washington navy yards, in
which you state your record as a soldier,
and also that this record was the sole cause
of your appointment. In reply, and to
correct erroneous impressions concerning
the same, I have to state that you were
discharged upon the recommendation of
the chief of the Bureau of Yards aud
I > jcks for inefficiency in the performance
of your duties. At the time of my ap
proval of the recommendation for your
dismissal I wa9 not aware of your mili
tary record, and it is a cause of deep re
gret that such should happen to a soldier.
But, nevertheless, it is necessary to the
proper transaction of the business
of the Navy Department that per
sons holding positions thereunder
shall be able to discharge their
duties in a manner satisfactory to thoir
superior officers. While the fact of a
person having the good record of a sol
dier will be considered among the best of
recommendations for bis retention in, or
recommendation to a position under the
Navy Department, the ability to perform
satisfactorily the duties of the position
which he holds, or to which he aspires,
must be a condition precedent to favora
ble consideration of an application for his
retention or appointment.
The Treasury surplus has been daily
increasing for several days past. It
now amounts to $50,200,000 or $5,000,000
more than it was ten days ago. This in
crease is due to the great excess of re
ceipts over disbursements since the first
of the month. The receipts to date ag
gregate $23,200,000, while the expendi
ture during the same period amount to
a little over $12,000,000, including about
$2,000,000 paid out on account of pen
sions. Until recently the receipts
and expenditures had been pretty
well balanced by the purchase of bonds,
but this method of applying the surplus
has been considerably hampered of late
by light offerings. Secretary Windom
has announced his purpose of continuing,
for the present at least, the system of
purchases adopted by his predecessor,
and that he would willingly increase the
purchases if the offers permitted it. He
has been urged to resume the purchases
of 4 per cents us a more profitable use of
the surplus than tbe purchase ol 4l 2 per
cents. He declines, however, to make
known his views on the subject beyond
the statement that his policy as to the
4's must be determined by his treatment
of offers.
I The probable effect of tbe death of
Chief Justice Matthews upon the length
of the special session of the Senate was
discussed to-day. Sherman's announce
ment yesterday that the President would
be enabled to let tho Senators go home
next week was received with satisfaction
by the large majority of the
Senators who were desirous of leav
ing Washington, but tho sad event
of to-day may cause a postponement.
Said one to-day: "Filling thisi vacaucy
is an important matter, and the President
will want time to consider it carefully.
The court has been without the presence
of Justice Matthews for almost a year,
and it will shortly adjourn for the Jus
tices to go on their several circuits, and
it is there the services of the Associate
Justices are in demand for the expedi
tion of business." The succes
sion to the vajancy is already
discussed, there being two pro
grammes laid out by those who talk.
One is that Justice (iresham, now Judge
of the Circuit, comprising the States of
Wisconsin, Illinois and Indiana, will bj
nominated for Associate Justice. Ho
would in turn be succeeded by Judge
Woods, leaving a vacancy to he filled in
the District of Indiana. The other pro
gramme includes the transfers of the
Attorne)-General to the Supreme Bench,
of Secretary Noble to the head of the De
parturient of Justice, and of Assistant.-
Fostmast-.r-General Clarkson to the In
terior Department.
Sailing ord»rs have been sent out. to

United States in the waters about Beh
ing Straits and the Arctic Ocean. As
vhaling vessels usually leave tho Arctic
n the latter part, of September, the prov
ince of the Thetis until then will add
lecurity to tho39 in that import
int industry, and thri Thetis will remain
intil they have taken their departure
outhward, taking care not to be caught

It is thought a dark horse will be ap
lointed Governor of Montana. Watson
iquires has retired gracefully from the
andidacy for Governor of Washington
Territory. It is said Harrison frankly
old him it was understood he proposed
o make tho Governorship a stepping
tone to the United States Senate at the
iropor time, and for that r«ason only
iould not appoint him. Squires admit
ed that he was aspiring to Senatorial
ionors aud thanking Harrison for hii
raukness withdrew from tbe contest.
Secretary Windom has recommended
Charles G. Edwards for appointment as
Collector of Customs at St. Paul, and it
is expected that his nomination will be
sent to the Senate to-morrow.
George E. Whitney, brother-in-law of
Justice Field, is a candidate for Governor
of Utah, and is said to be backed for the

The Booth-modjeokn Combination.
Philadelphia, March 22. —The Press
to-morrow will say: "The differences be
tween Messrs. Booth and Barrett and
Mme. Modjeska, which threatened to
prevent the consummation of negotia
tions that have beeu pending for some
time past for a joint starring tour
ot Booth and the actress, under
Barrett's management, has been amic
ably settled, and the contract eigned by
all the parties interested. The contract
provides that the actor and actress shall
be jointly starred, and that in all things
Mme. Modjeska shall be on equal
terms with Mr. Booth. The tour
begins September 23, 1889, and is
to extend through thirty-two weeks,
during which, there are to be
thirty weeks of performanoss. Their
repertoire embraces Hamlet, Merchant of
Venice, Richelieu, Much Ado About Noth
ing, Macbeth,Othello and Mary Stuart.and

is lo have the privilege of appearing on
the same in a play of her own.
Chaunrey Cioea to London.
Nrw York, March 22.—The World
to-morrow will say: "It can be stated
on the highest authority that Chauncey
M. Depew has been ctfered the English
mission and, that after giving the matter
serious consideration, he has sig
nified his willingness to accept it.
The nomination of Depew will not
be delene 1 later than Monday. It had
been known for come time that the
President regarded Depew as hia ideal
for the English mission, and the only
obstacle to the appointment was about
Depew's acceptance. This seems to have
been overcome, and the World's infor
mant makes the positive announcement
chat Depew will be Phelps's successor in
Attempted Murder and Suicide.
Ashland, Wis., March 22 —At High
land, Wis., this afternoon, Joseph Men
doir, a French teamßter, entered the
room of Ellen Long, a young girl,
whose mother keeps a boarding-house,
and after cutting her severely about
tho head with a razor, cut his own
throat. The girl, who is only 16 years
old, will recover. Mendoir had fallen in
love with her, and, having been repeat
edly repulsed, had deliberately planned
to kill her and then himself.
Duty on Wool Top*.
Washington, March 22.—The Treas
ury Department to-day decided that im
portations of broken wool tops aro duti
able at sixty cents por pound as "tops,"
and not ten cents a pound as "waste." It
is suspected that tops are broken to re
semble waste in order to evade the
higher rate of duty imposed upon "tops."

in the Commons.
Sir William Vernon Harcourt Goes
for Him and Soanies for Un
professional Work.
I Associated Press Dispatches to the Hkralo.]
London, March 22. —In the Commons
to-day Harcourt, resuming the discus
sion regarding the Parnell Commiasion,
declared that Attorney-General Web-
ster's identification with the Commission
had destroyed the impression that the
Government would be impartial and had
added weight to the Times's charges. If
the Attorney-Genoral had not advised
tho Government, Parliament should cot
vote a salary for services he had not per
formed. He condemned the Attorney-
General's apology for Piggott's forger
ies as contemptible and disgraceful, and
expressed a hope that he would make a
hitter apology.
Attorney-General Webster replied that,
but for the duty he owed to those who
trusted him, he would not have noticed
the charges made by Harcourt. If he
were capable of the conduct imputed to
him, he would be a disgrace tothe Eng
lish bar. He was private counsel for the
Times. It was immaterial whether he
had been right or wrong in assuming the
position, although it was doubtful
whether he had been prudent.
Redmoud's motion to reduce the Attor
ney-General's salary was rejected.
Sir Wm. liarcourt wanted to know
whether the Attorney-General had the
letter in which Piggott admitted his in
ability to stand cross-examination. If
Soames had that letter, and kept it from
the knowledge of the Attorney-General,
he (Harcourt) had no hesitation fn say
ing that Soame3 must be struck off the
In the course of tho Attorney-General's
reply, tho Chairman called upon Xavior
O'Brien to retire for interrupting.
O'Brien denied that he had opened hia
mouth. Tho Chairman repeated the
0.-der to retire. Piukerton corroborated
O'Brien, declaring that he had been
silent. T. P. O'Connor thereupon pro
tested agninst tho Chairman putting the
lie to the honorable member without in
quiry. Tho Chairman accepted the dis
claimer, adding that O'Brien could not
deny having repeatedly interrupted
loudly, and warning him" not to repeat
such conduct.
The Attorney General continuing, de
clined absolutely to say whether he had
advised the Government on any point.
He had never vouched to the Govern
ment for the authentici'y of letters,
Harcourt's argument that counsel ought
to satisfy himself of the accuracy of the
statements witness would make was
preposterous. Ho accured Harcourt as
asking questions in this manner be
cause ho knew a certain section of
the preßS was only too ready to
turn suggestions into accusations.
Regarding Piggott, the Attorney-General
argued ho had no right to keep him from
the witness box, because he said he
could not stand cross-examination. He
had informed the Commission and had
put Piggott's letter in Sir Charles Rus
sell's hands five days before Piggott
went into the box (loud Ministerial
cheers). Would the Committee believe
that Sir Charles Russell had asked
that the letter should not lie
read until Piggott went into
the box? (Laughter) He protested
strongly against Sir William's reference
to Soames, who was not there to answer
the charges. In regard to Sir William's
statement that the Times's apology could
only have been written by a pettifogging,
cozening knave, he had only to say
that that knave stood before them at the
present moment (Conservative cheers).
O'Connor and Labouchere having
spoken, Parnell said he should not have
intervened, but that in the language of
Attorney General Webster and the in
sults of his supporters, there had been
some faint echo of Lord Salisbury's
equivocal language in resoect to the
forged letters. If Lord Salisbury still
chose to pin a relic of his faith to the let
ters, the consequence would be upon his
own head. In the witness box he (Parnell)
had testified under oath that he had
neither signed, written, authorized, nor
knowu of any ol the letters, and Attor
ney-General Webster had not ventured
to put to him a single question. Was
there any member, who would venture
to expreaa any doubt now that the let
ters were forgeries ?
Morley asserted that the letters were
forgeries. He said Sir Charles Russell
had authorized him to state that ho was
entirely in accord with the Opposition in
the action they were takina. He main
tained Attorney-General Webster had
failed to answer the charges.

London, March 21.—Copper still mo
nopolizes the attention of the financiers
and in France has become a political
factor. Taking copper at £50 per ton it

Dr. Kiiappc Denounced.
Berlin, March 22.—Bismarck in hie
letter to Herr Steubel, said that Dr.
Knappe waß neither authorized to de
clare war, nor martial law, and, in any
case, there could be no question of en
forcing the latter against foreigners. His
conduct, both towards the agents of other
powers and the nativep, showed a lack of
the level-headedness, calmness and cool
ness indespensable for correct official con
duct. The assumption that the German
Government had authorized such pro
codure on his part, rests on a wilful mis
conception, or a mistake, which it was
dificult to explain.

Intense Excitement at Oklahoma

St. Long, March 22.—A special to the
Republic, from Wichita, Kansas, says:
"Reports to-night from Oklahoma City

iv the wouus ot the Indian reservation,
have returned with the withdrawal

hundreds that have been hanging along

ness to hang around the telegraph
offices to hoar of President Har
rison issuing his proclamation. Tho
number of boomers is augmented
by train and wagon loads of would-be
settlers and prospectors. They have

Col. Crocker, who has labored to hold
back the invaders, stated that should
the President hesitate much longer there
would be bloodshed. There are 30,000
white people in the Chickasaw
Nation alone waiting to take
up claims in the Territory, and disap
pointment has foilowed disappointment
until they are becoming desperate. The
boomers are greatly agitated over the
effoits to prevent them now from going
in. Prospectors who have recently
arrived, are taking the names of those
who have violated the provisions of
the bill by entering upon lands, and in
tend to appear against them to defeat
their filing. An old man, who had
watched a piece of land for six years,
to-day stated that a band of almost
10,000 old boomers had been formed and
the effort to • dispossess any of
them wou!d be death to the
informant. This league, he says, is
secret, and growing in numbers each
day, and whether expelled or not, they
will hold their claims by force. The
situation is certainly critical.
A "Shut Dowa" Resolved On.
Scranton, Pa., March 22. —The Penn

miners to-night that a "shut down"had
been decided upon, to take place at once.
The suspension affects nearly 2,000 men.
The offijers of the company say that the
"Bhut down" is only temporary. Old
miners assert that in eleven yeais there
has not been so continued a period
of dullness as at the present time.
For the past six months men have been
working quarter time. Their earnings
have not exceeded $15 a month, and
have frequently fallen aa low as $0 a

houses, the monthly rent of which aver

The Floods In New Jersey.
Atlantic City, N. J., March 22.—
The storm here is abating and the water
is receding. The storm center was Briga
tine and Peter's Beach, the later place
being the cause of much anxiety among
the inhabitants, who watched all day,
the Peter's Beach House, about three
miles away, standing isolated out in
the ocean without any land visible around
it. Charles Smith, the proprietor
and hia wife have boats ready in which
to escape in case the threatened collapse
of their house takes place. The founda

A few people at Brigantine have been
almost entirely in boats since the storm,
their homes being submerged.

of money and valuable letters.
Among tho missing mail was a note for
$10,000 Bent from the Piedmont Bank,
and a number of checks for large
amounts. How much money the rob
bers sscured cannot be ascertained at
this time. Detectives from Washington
are here looking up the case.
