Bums, FOR MAN Braises, MUSTANG LINIMENT Rheumatism, AND BEAST. Stiff Joints. The Herald LOS ANGELES, MONDAY MORNING, JUNE 18, 1894- A RASH ANARCHISTIC PLOT To Blow Up the Capitol at Washington. Other Public, Buildings to Be Destroyed. The Plan Discovered by the Wash ington Detectives. The Bottoms Ineobated at the Time Cony's Army Wm at the Capi tal—Frye'a Arrival to Be tha Climax. Bj the Associated Press. New York, Jnne 17.—A Washington diepatoh to a morning paper says: A newspaper hers will publish tomor row an expoenre of a plot whioh had for its object the destruction of ths cap itol and perhaps other government buildings which has been slowly devel oped for several weeks. The secret ser vice and police authorities, however, have been kept informed of tbe move ments of tbe plotters end would have been able to thwart them had tbe offi cers apprehended actnal violence. Only ence, says the newspaper, about three weeks ago, when the channel of information was unexpectedly inter rupted, were the federal and dietrict authorities really alarmed. They did not know at what moment an attempt might be made to explode bombs in the capitol, ths treasury building, the white house and tbe war and navy buildings. But aB the days passed and nothing was done the authorities, who had re doubled their vigilance, restored tbe line of communication with the assistance of an anarchist, and were able again to shadow every conspirator and keep fully informed of all anarchistic moves both hsre and elsewhere. According to the story, the plot was formed at the time the Coxeyite army was marching to the capital and tips of existence came from varions points, Omaha. Chicago and Pittsburg among them. Tbe prime mover in tbe anarchistic plot, that is, the Washington end of it was Uonore Jackson. He came from Chicago and is still in the city. He is a half-breed Indian. In Chicago he has been a disturber for years. At the time of the Kaymarkei riot he narrowly escaped being arrested as a principal conspirator and was shadowed by detectives for a long time. Jackson is a half-brsed of unknown tribal origin. He was one of Louis Reil's lieutenants in the Canadian rebellion some years ago. The informant in the case was kept in touch with tbs conspirators and bas given the police the names of those en gaged in the plot, together with other facts. These have been communicated to the officers of other oities, and tbey will probably act on the information. The fact that anarchists have committed no act in Washington upon which they could be convicted, has prevented their arrests. Their meetings have been small and secret. Jackson's headquarters was tbe resi dence ol a Frenchman named Savant. The conspirators met there and at other places, and about three weeks ago the meetings became so freqnent, and so many strange men came and went, that the officers felt they were losing their grasp of the situation. There was dang er that the climax might come at any time, and great alarm was felt. The capitol officers, including Secretary Carliele, the speaker of the house and the treasury people, felt very uneasy. The discovery of tbe formula for mak ing the explosive which tbe conspira tors propose to use, says the article in conclusion, is probably the best piece of work done by tbe detectives. Sever al chemicals are used, and the propor tions make a high explosive of a new and most dangerous kind. As soon as the police obtained this form ula they took it to a well known chemist and asked bim to make up a sample. He did so in his laboratory and placed it on a window sill in tbe sun. In a few moments there was an explos ion. A great deal of noise did not ac company the explosion, but there was a terrific concussion and a most nause ating and blinding smoke, although the quantity of the chemical experi mented with was very small. A oat which was in the room died in a few seconds from the effects of the vapor. An occasion for tbe use of tbe explo sives, the anarchists hope, it is said, will be furnished by tbe arrival of that part of Frye's army now reported in the Cumberland valley. Under cover of a disturbance produced by them, the plot against the capitol is to be carried out. Shot by an ox-Kmployoe. Chicago. June 17.— Frederick: F. Swayne, preaident of the Swayne Lubri cating company, waa shot and fatally in jured in hia office thia evening by an ex employee named Hen.y Vaughn. Two employees of the company who heard the shooting rushed to the scene, and in endeavoring to aubdue Vaughn injured him so seriously he had to be taken to tbe hospital. The shooting was caused by Vaughn being discharged some time ago for alleged incompetency as an en gineer.

DR. MARY. She Books Police Protection In a Blassa ehnaetts Town. Springfield, Mass., June 17.—Dr. Mary Walker, clad in Prince Albert coat, black trousers and a silk bat, walked into polioe headquarters in this city last evening and applied to Matron Mallory for protection. Bhe stated she was on her way to Lebanon, N. H., to see about tbo final adjustment of the $2500 reward for tbe copture of Frank H. Almy, the murderer of Christie Warden, and that emissaries of tbe Warden family were following her with evil intent. She lodged nt police head quarters last night and today called on Sheriff Clark to ask that a deputy ac company her to Lebanon, where the re ward oase is to come up for final settle ment before tbe superior court tomor row.

Bat Sustained Compar atively Little Serloaa Damage. Glasgow, June 17.—The Anchor line steamer Etiopia, Oaptain Wilson, from .New York June 2, represented yesterday as having been damaged in a collision witb an iceberg, has arrived bere. Sbe has a large hole in her bow. The accident occurred ou the afternoon of June 6, during a heavy fog. Tbe steamer struck tbe berg witb great force and tbe water began to pour in through the hole made in her bowe. Orders were given to clear away and lower the small boats preparatory to abandoning the snip, but before the tackles were cost off from tbe decks Captain Wilson bad the pumps placed near the spot and soon found the steamer was making comparatively little water. The or der to lower the boats was coun termanded and tbe crew was ordered to build an articitical bulkhead. This was done and the bulkhead was covered witb canvas, which greatly checked the inflow of water. A number of bags of flour, part of the vessel's cargo, were then piled up near the hole. When the flour wae saturated, it formed a cement like wall. As soon as the berg was seen the engines were stopped and were not started again for two days. Nobody was injured and tbe cargo sustained little damage. Tbe action of the officers and crew of tbe Etbopia at the time of the collision and afterwards was highly praised by the passengers, and a purse of 50 pounds was subscribed by them to be divided among tbe crew. The fact tbat the Ethopia ran into the berg in the afternoon of June 6th proves it was the same iceberg that was reported as having been seen by tbe Vigilant on that day. Renaming Alatl Bervlee. Washington, Jnne 17.—Dispatches re ceived at the Postoffice department an nounce that the Northern Pacilio rail road, of which practical suspension of service waß caused by the floods, will commence running through trains from Bt.

It is expected the main line will be in readiness for resumption of all business within a week and that the Great Northern road will be in condi tion to resume through train service within two weeks. Am I nly Brother* Koepsr. London, June 17. —Dr. Percival, min ister of Rugby, preached in Westminster Abbey tonight taking as his text Am I My Brother's Keeper.

The Senate to Finish the Tariff Bill. Hatch's Anti-Option Bill to Occupy the House. Also 1h» Deficiency Appropriations BUl—The Statehood of New Mex ico and Other BUI* Strag gling for Hearing. By the Associated Press. Washington, June 17.—Senator Harris said when the senate adjourned yester day tbat the tariff bill would pass tbe senate by next Saturday, and when Senator Aldrich, the leader of the oppo sition to the bill, was asked what he thought of Mr. Harris' prediction, ex pressed the opinion that it could not be entirely realized, but it would come near it. "1 think," he said, "that by next Saturday night we shall be on the fag end of the bill." Both declined to state whether there had been any negotiations for an agree ment as to the time for the final vote between the leaders on the respective sides of the chamber. It is known, however, that the situation haa been canvassed more or less in the numerous conferences which have taken place be tween Senators Cockrell, Harris and Jones on the Democratic side, and Sen ators Aldrich and Allison on the Repub lican. It is known that they have not agreed on a time because the difficulty on tbe part of the Republicans of de termining what time might be required for speeches by senators on that side. They have, however, canvassed the question sufficiently to feel assured that there will be comparatively few more long speeches. There are, however, some Republican senators who do not exactly agree with the joint prediction of Senators Harris and Aldrich, and who say tbat while they do not consider that the time for the final passage of tbe bill is far dis tant, they think considerable time will be required for the consideration of the income tax and for the votes on the various features ol tbe bill, as well as probably some speeches when tho bill shall be reported frora the committee of the whole. When it is considered that it ie probable tbat the income tax can be disposed of in less than three days at the moot, there is also a probability that Mr. Lodge's amendment for retaliating upon England will be reviewed by the Bilver Republicans, which wilt have the effect oi at least briefly reopening the sil ver question in connection with the tariff. The only tariff schedules which have not been disposed of are: Silks, which are now under consideration, papers and sardines. These, with the free list, tbe income tax and the administrative features of the bill, complete the meas ure. There is very little prospeot of many speeches on silk or papsr, but there are several articles in the sched ule of sundries and in the free list that are calculated to bring forth debate. The wool question will be reviewed when the free wool item shall be reached in tbe free list, and while the contest will not be so long as it was when the question was taken up on tbe wool schedule, it promises to be quite ani mated for a short time. It still seema strongly probable that the administrative part of the bill will be withdrawn and the present adminis trative laws allowed to stand. Senator Jones said today that he favored this course for the purpose of expediting the passage of the bill and hia judgment will most likely be allowed by hie Dem ocratic colleagues to oontrol their course. IN THE HOUSE. The Hatch Anti-Option* Bill to Bo Dis poned of. Washington, June 17. —The anti-op tion bill will be pressed to tbe front in the house of representatives and Mr. Hatch, its author, is confident he can secure con sideration for the measure Monday and a vote on it about Wednesday. He will yield tomorrow to several minor meas ures which may be brought up under suspension of the rules, but will insist tbat anti-option is to be the first discus sion of auy length. The deficiency appropriation bill, which is the last of the appropriation bills, will be reported from the commit tee on Monday and it is expected tbat it will be taken up about Thursday when anti-option is out of the way. Unusual interest attaches to the deficiency bill owing to the position of Representative Breckinridge of Kentucky as chairman of the deficiency sub-committee. He has been present at the meetings of the committee during the last week and has evinced an interest in the bill and a de sire to take charge of it. A leading member of tbe committee said there certainly would be no clash on tbis personal aspect of tbe bill, but he added that no definite conclusion had been reached aa to who would have charge of tbe measure. Tbe members interested in the many southern war claims which have been bunched as an omnibus claims bill and are seeking to get a specinl rule giving them an early heariug. These claims have been approved by the court of claims, but there iB no way of paying them until congress makes an appropri ation. The New Mexico Btatehood bill and the Cooper bill to tax greenbacks are also struggling for an early hearing. eitor l'KosriccTS. A Practical Failure In Peaches—Apples In Bott«r tthape. Washington, June 17. —The report of the statistician of the department of agriculture for June Bays that a glance at the percentages of the condition of the peaches on June let is sufficient to show how disastrous the season has been thus far. The returns to thia date relate princi pally to blooms in the northern districts, and where conditions are high it would yet be too early to form An opinion aa to crop results. Aa fruit does not recover from a low condition early in its history aa other products, it is safe to construe the utremely low figures into a prac tical failure of the orop. The condition for 1894 in the states producing the com mercial crop, as compared with 1893, makes a poor showing for this year as follows: New Jersey, 1893, 104; 1894,65; Del aware, 1893, 94; 1894,15; Maryland, 1893, 93; 1894, 31; Virginia, 1893.63; 1894 15; Georgia, 1893,82; 1894,7; Ohio, 1893, 54; 1894,43; Michigan, 1893, 86; 1894, 70; California, 1893, 83; 1894, 85. The best prospects east of the Rooky mountains are in New Jersey aud Mich igan. The condition of apples is some what bettor than that of peaches. In sections of New F.ngland, where the seas ut is far enough advanced for the fact to be determined, prospect are un- ÜBunliy promising. In New York trees have hloomed full, but aome counties re port damage from frest and cold rains. A sudden decline in the conditions be gins with New Jersey and Pennsylvania, duo to the causes jußtetated, and the in creased damage from the freezing weatner of March further south is clear ly indicated. The statistician has, at the request of many growers and dealers, added rice to the list of products mentioned in the monthly crop reports. Tne present re port shows that the breadth seeded in 1894, is but seventy-six per cent of last year s acreage. The greateat reduction took place in Louisiana, where 69 per cent of the area of laet year waß down. South Carolina, next in importance in production, shows a decrease in acreage of 17 per cent. Then follows Georgia, with a decrease of 23 per cent. Tbe principal cause assigned for the decrease in acreage of the product is the ruling low price. EVENTS AT NICARAGUA. GOVERNMENT INSPECTION OP CANAL PROPERTY. Nomftrom Outbreaks in the Monqalto Country—Riot Over ao Attempt to Arrent a Disorderly N-*gjro. Blitefields vis New Or leans, June 17.—The Associated Press correspondent accompanied United States Commissioner Hastings, who was sent by the government to Grevtown to inspect the Nicaraguan canal property. The plant and other property was found in much better condition tban expeoted. Mr. Hastings said that it was impos sible to state when the work would really begin in earnest, but he hoped it would not be long. There ia a great deal of work to be done before work on the canal actually begins. The re pairing, he was confident, wonld be started shortly, as all the dredgers can be need again if the work so much needed would be begun in a short time. Of course, the dredges would need new bulls, but in the mean time, with proper repairs, the preaeat ones oould be made to hold the ma chinery. The mammoth bulla would have to be built in the United States, then brought down here, and that would take time. He had not found tbe company's property in firßt class order, but it was in bettor condition than he had expected to find it. He had an idea that everything had been allowed to go to ruin, while in reality it bad been cared for by the faithful employees of Gonzales. The village of Grevtown has been practically deserted since tbe stopping of work. Grave rumors have drifted from the capital, which, if true, will delay the settlement of tbe Mosquito reserve question for montha. The Moequito question does not seem to be quieting. Outbreaks are numerous In Bluefields the courts are set at defi ance, while at Pearl City, which is the second city in size and importance in the reservations, things are even worse. In Pearl City on the evening of the 4th, when tbe police attempted to arreat a disorderly negro, an American named Joe Lahne called upon a crowd of neg roes and Indians to resist. The situa tion was so feverish that n word was all that waa required to raise a riot. The crowd fell upon the police with great fury. Two policemen were beaten nearly to death. The newly-appointed Nicaraguan gov ernor came out to quell the riot, but wsb compelled to flee to tbe government building for his life. The streets were filled with a bowling mob of half-drunk en natives, men and woman. In the morning tbe governor sent a messenger to Bluefielda ordering out troope. He sent another message to the British ship for marines to protect his life. The riot waß the culmination of the long pent up hatred of Nicaragiiane. There is soon to be a perfect understand ing between the negroes and Indian tribes. The consuls have received official notice that the ministers have agreed upon a plan ol settlement, and while tbe terms are not yet public, it ia geuerully understood to be favorable to Nicaragua. Sbe is to retain her sovereign righia, will fortify the coast, collect revsiuies and hold tbe publio landa. On the other band, the chief will be restored, but with municipal rights alone.

Sunday creek miners will not and Jack sou miners may not. The Massilost miners will not resume. They struck last February for 15 1 a cents differential over the Hocking valley wages and will continue the fight. Many Ohio districts will not resume tomorrow that would have done so had President Adams called the state convention. As to western Pennsylvania he said the mines would resume, except five or Bix whose operators would not pay the price fixed by the settlement. In Indiana the blook ooal miners com posing a third of the miners in tbe state had accepted the settlement, but wheth er cosy would go to work tomorrow in tbe face of the fact that tbe other miners had rejected it, he could not say. Illinois will go back to work he said. I said te ths operators the tiase the set tlement was made I did not believe tbe eastern and northern miners who were to be bound by it would go to work be fore two or three weeks past. President Mcßride thinks they ] will all go to work under the settlement and hopes tbe resumption will not be post poned longer than two weeks. "Outside of this competitive district," said Mcßride, "matters are going on smoothly toward a settlement."

Massillon, 0., June 17.—Captain Freed and Corporal Van Duaen of the Logan Rides of Youngstown, personally captured J. E. and C. D. Blair at Beach Oity late last night and held them under arrest for shooting from ambush. Nine shots were fired. Tne prisoners turned state's evidence, and a search party located four others and tney were escorted through the town under a heavy guard and locked up. On their arrival here tbis afternoon they were charged with riotous conduct and will be tried tomorrow. Captain Sherman of Company M waa shot at six times, one ball shattering his bayonet scabbard. Work will be resumed Monday in the Pittsburg district, Wheeling and Lake Erie road at Laurelton, Long Run and Dollinvale. At Sherrodsville, the miners will con tinue idle, and this is also true of all the Cleveland, Lorraine and Wheeling mines. The strike in the Massillon district will continue indefinitely. A SCALE ADOPTED. Bpringfield, 111., June 17.—The miners' conference adjourned last night after a two days' session. A scale of wages for mining coal and for day labor ers in and around the coal mines waa adopted, which is about tbe aame as that of 1892. In some districts the demanded prices is a fraction higher and others lower, averaging about the same paid laet year. Resolutions were adopted calling for pay every two weeks, check weighmen, aud an arbitration committee of three persons to be choaeu, one by tbe miuerß, who take Lieutenant-Governor Gill, one by the operators and the third io be chosen by those two. Any operator granting the demanded scale can toauint work by June 20th, TROUBLE FEARED- Ciucago, Juue 17.—At a late hour to night General Wheeler, eomuiandina; the First brigade, Illinois Notional Guard, received orders from tbe adjutant general to send the Seventh regiment,. Colonel Colby commanding, to Mount Olive at once to aid the local authorities in preserving peace. The strikers there have been acting in a riotous maaiier for a week past, preventing the movement of trains o'. c tal cars, aud committing other lawless acts. Last night a party of United Steteß deouty marshals wenl to Mount Olivet from Springfield and arreated several of the leaders of the men who bad been instrumental in stopping traffic on the road in the hands of the lederal court. Nearly a thousand strikers and sy mpathizera gathered, however, and made such threatening demonstrations that the deputies ar reated the men and returned to Spring field. The sheriff reported lo the governor tbat he wns unable to cope with the mob without additional aid, and, although there lias been no seri ous noting aa yet, it waa deemed beU to take precautionary measures. The Seventh regiment left tbia city shortly after midnight on • special train. VIGILANCE COMMITTEE FORMED. Colorado Springs.
