DECEMBER 7, 1894- PEAK'S STOLEN APPAREL. The Pullman Company Must Pay for It. Justice of the Peace Cook's Decision. The Responsibility of Sleeping Car Companies. Paeeengers Are Kntltled to Protection ror Their Clothing; - \ Just Judf ment — Colored Porters Roasted. By the Associated Proaa San Franoisco, Dao. 6.—Justice of tbe Peace Cook rendered a decision to day againat tbe Pullman Palace Car company, in tbe suit o! Charles Peak against that corporation. The plaintiff songht to recover tbe value of a coat and vest stolen from bim while occupying a berth in one of the company's cars on a trip to Los Angeles last June. In an ex tended review oi the teatimony, the juatice eaid: "It waa in proof that near midnight the plaintiff went into tbe amoking room of the car and there fonnd the colored porter, whose duty it waa to keep watch and ward over the car and ita occupants, sound asleep. "While the plaintiff was asleep aome unknown peraoo removed bis coat and vest from a hook at the berth he occu pied. A hue and cry were made on the following morning, and all the officers nnd servants of the company were noti fied of the loss. If. through want of care, the personal effecte of a passenger are stolen, the company ia liable and cannot avoid ita liability by posting in tbe car a notice disclaiming responsi bility. "A notice printed on tickets or checks can in no way limit ths liability of car riers. "A passenger cannot be expected to come into a oar naked. "It a passenger cannot have protec tion for the clothes he wears; if he can not be allowed to undress and go to bed with the knowledge that his personal effects are nndsr careful guard, then the Bleeping oar service is a delusion nnd a snare. Instead of being a place of reat where a passenger can sleep, feel ing himself secure from theives, it be comes a robbers' rookery," Justice Cook then paid his compli ments to tbs colored porter as follows: "The defense etalta the colored porter, who has the almost exclusive charge of the sleeping cara in tbis oountry, into an angel of light and virtue, which the ex perience of moat travelers does not war rant. I, myself, bave had much ex perience with tbis kind of colored gentry. I know he mnst eat, sleen and wear clothes like a white man. lie likes good wearing apparel and be is willing arid ready to get it, especially if he geta it for nothing." In giving judgment for the plaintiff, Justice Cook held that the Pullman company wae under all circumstances required by law to make good the losses sustained by travelers while riding in its cara. UPROAR IN THE REICHSTAG. Socialist Krmbin Refine to Cheer th» Kaiaar. Berlin, Dec. 6.—A disturbance oc curred today in tbe reiohstag palaoe noon tbe occasion of tbe brat sitting of tbe reichetag. After President yon Lovetzow made a reminiscent speech, be called for cheers for the emperor. The oheers were given heartily by all except several Socialists, who remained seated in spite of the excited and angry protests of otber members. A great uproar followed. President yon Lovet zow assumed the presidency after re election. He censured the action of the Socialists in romaining seated when he called for cheers. Such conduct, he said, was not in consonance with the traditions of Germany and tbe n ages of the honse. Herr Singer attempted to justify tbe attitude of the Socialists, and made a bitter personal attack upon the emperor, which provoked a storm of indignant protests from other parts of the honse. lierr yon Lovetzow there upon called Herr Singer to order. The house then opened debate on the rno> tien to abandon the pending prose cution of Bime Socialist members, dur ing which Freihsrr yon Manteuffel in veighed strongly against the conduct of tbe Socialists today. 'Ihe reichetag then adjourned until Tuesday, when tbe budget will be introduced. The Socialists resented the attitude of thu president, and Liebknecbt rose in his seat, bis manner being quiet threat ening. Ulricbt also sprang to bis feet, and amid renewed shouts and cries of ''Shame! Shame!" shook his fist at tbe otber members. When order was re stored, tbe election of office™ of the bouse was proceeded with. When this had been concluded, tbe president ex pressed his regret that he was nnable to punish tbe disloyal Socialists. Singer thereupon rose aud attempted to justify the attitude of himself and his fellow Socialists. He was repeat edly imorrupted, but was understood to say: "We will never be compelled to cheer for one who recently told the re cruits who were taking the service oath that should circumstances arise they wonld be ordered against the will of the people to shoot tbeir own brothers, fathers and mothers for the one who is now introducing an anti-revolntionary bill which is directed against ns. To cheer him would be irreconcilable with our honor and dignity." The rest of Singer's words were drowned in a storm of protects, whioh only subsided when- Yon Le'vitzow called the speaker to order. Tbe honse adjourned nntil Tuesday. Frozen persimmons at Althonse Bros.' Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder World's Fair Highest Medal and Diploma. A LUCKY GRAB.

Intending to have the money reinvested, she drew it late this afternoon, putting it in three rolls which she placed in a band satchel. She went ont to catch a train at Fourth Btreet and Central avenue. In a crowd somo one came behind her, seized her satchel, jerked it off her arm, pushing her violently forward and escaped with out leaving a olue. The police think it was a random grab of a hungry tramp who way not at all aware of the richness of tho steal. Miss Brand diverted pur suit from the thief by screaming and fainting. Sho was carried to the nearest drug store and late tonight was sent to Lawrenceburg in a state of nervous proa iiatilOu. Fartliqnakee in Italy.

Salt Lake, Utah, Dsc. 6 —Col. E. W. Tatlock of the militia left for San Joan county today with 100 carbinss and 1000 rounds of ammunition, which will be furnished to the citizens who are threat ened by the invasion of the Ute Indiana from Colorado.

In canvassing the returns of San Pete connty lor delegates to the oonstitutiouai convention today, the Utah commission fonnd come inaccuracies and decided to make a recount. The chairman of the Republican committee filed a protest, whioh was overruled. Should the result as formerly announced be chatted by the recount, and all dologates from that county be given to tbe Democrats, it might decide the control of the conven tion in favor of that party.

Vienna, Dec. 6—A dispatch from Constantinople saya Sir Phillip Currie, the British ambassador ab Constantino ple, is dissatisfied with the statement that the Armenian cntragos were only ordinary accounts of brigandage, and ho has made further strong representations to the porte that Great Britain is aware that the affair partook of the nature of a rising up on tbe part of tbe Armenians, owing to the intoler able situation, the absence of security for life and property and the depreda tions of tbe Kurds.

Bis Controversy With Archbishop Currl gsn Wsx,s Hot. New York, Deo. 6.—The controversy Vig ( ',tecu Vtci. uisiaCp Oorrigf»u •?■_&& v» Father Ducey has reached tbat state where another statement haa been deemed oxpodient by the latter, and this evening he gave out a long state ment, in which he says iv part: "Archbißbop Corrigan has placed himself in a position of persistent perse cution of ub for tbe past 10 years. Why his grace should have been co misguided I cannot fathom. I owe nothing to tbe archbishop of New York, and he knows he owej me much. Before coming to tbis diocese I was kind to him in tbe extreme when he was a supplicant and a stranger in New York, as hs knows. As coadjutor archbishop, with the right of succession, he was unknown and bumble in New York. He came to my house almost every week, lie rode with me in my carriages and sleigba before my devotion to humanity forced me to rid myself of those vanities. "I was not in all particulars like the young man in the gospel—l could not say 1 had kept in perfection the com mandments from my youth without spot and blemish —but I can say, however, that I havo been most faithful and sacrificing as a priest, and I have never been a frequenter of disreputable places. "Tbe Lexow committee is seeking to know something of the character of Roao Bell's and her successor, Evelyn Bell's, house on Thirty-sixth street. "Inspector Williams and Captain Westervult might give aome ecclesiast ical information as to that houae to the committee. Tho Rev. Mr. McNealy is acting eeoretary ol Archbishop Cora rigan. The Rev. Mr. McNealy's pe tition to me to publish Archbishop Oorrigan'a letter to me marked "private" wub a very shallow trap. I still affirm that hia grace bas not an swered my letter of November 27tb. His second letter of November 24th is not an answer to my first letter. On .November 27th I ec-nt him the following: " 'Your letter of the _4th was handed ma by my servant at 4:15 p.m. Sunday, when I returned to ray residence; hence I could not do as you requested. " T must take exception to a few ex pressions. I never took for granted any supposition without first obtaining proof.* Ab a priest and a gentleman I am not bound, in my opinion, to indi cate lo any one what the person or per sona are who may give me a confidence. "The grievances alleged againat me are not founded on truth and fact. You hoow, as God knows, I have been the wronged person. I have never entered into any conspiracy against you or any other man, "You.- excellency cannot be ignorant of tbe fact that priests at tho oathedral have by their own letters given evidence of evil methods. You, it is said, are not responsible for their acts, but if they have abused your confidence and im posed on your good nature why do they definitely hold on ? You cannot blame me if I have reason to complain." Bishop Mconsul's Statement. Rochester, N. V., Deo. 3.—Bishop McQ iaid tonight gave out a statement exonerating the archbishops of San Francisco and Portland of the part wbicb, it is alleged, they played in defeating him for the regen cy. It is positive, cays Bishop MtQuaid, that neither they nor arty one of tbe biahope wrote to tbe Republican members of the New York legislature in favor of the election of Rev. Mnlone as regent of tbe Univeraity of New York, nor had they at any time meddled in tbe politics of tbis state. Fonronll Liadg Gallagher.

The Havemeyer People Working It for All It Ia Worth—A 13 Per Cent Stook Selling Below Par. New York, Dec. 6.—For weeka Mr. Havemeyer haa been vociferously pro claiming that the augar indnatry was practically on tbe edge of bankrnptoy. Tbe managers got together to decide on tbe dividend, but while they talked the floor of the exchange bore evidence to the fact tbat a big following of brokers had been let into the secret of just what the sugar managers were going to do. There was some talk of opposition to the Havemeyer plan. But none of the man agers wouid talk. The fact ia, alter sugar had olimbed to 89 on transactiona of about 175,000 shares, or nearly hall the entire common capitalization of tbe trust, tbere oame a voice from the board room that the dividend should remain as at present, 7 per cent annum on the preferred and 12 ncr cent on the com mon. In de claring the common divi dend it waa not even termed a quarterly dividend, bnt tbe explanation was tacked on to the declaration tbat the dividend waa on earnings prior to September Ist. Tbe gigantic turn lisb been made and the etreet sees a 12 per cent stock selling at less tban 90, while an 8 per cent atock, auch as tbe New York. New Haven nnd Hartford, ia quoted at 193. Tbe differ ence in these (inures measures tbo dis trust which the investigating pnblio has lor Havemeyer and his partners. A mo nopoly which admits of a speculative profit of millions in a few months in these times, even with legislative assist ance, is a very fine field to work, and tbe Havemeyer people are working it for all it is worth. MISB GING'S MURDBRERB. Andy and Harry Hayward Arrested for the Ortm*. Minneapolis, Minn., Dec. 6.—At mid night tonight Andy A. Howard was arreated oharged with firing the shot that killed Miaa Catherine Ging. Harry T. Hayward, hia brother, tbe young business man whose relations with Miss Ging bave been investigated from every conceivable atandpoint, waa arrested earlier in the evening, alao charged with murder in the first de gree. The police authoritiea state the arrests havo been made after much de liberation. Considerable damaging evi dence againat the Haywards was se cured during the day. Harry Hayward is brought into the case because of a number of circum stances, most prominent of whiob is hiß alleged knowledge of the making of tbe loans or tbe forms gone through witb. Concerning this, Andy Hayward ia said to have made conflicting state ments. At tbe same time tbe officers state that the suggestion of the money not being genuine may be found worthy of consideration, and that thia scheme of duping the woman will be in line with the theory that there was a con federate. Another suggestion in the conspiracy theory relates to the pains taken by Harry Hayward to authenticate the making of the last loan. Two witnesses were called in, whereas, previous trans actions of a like nature were made with out the least appearance of precautions. The insurance was made iuconteßtible. These facts are held to be inconsistent with the easy-going, rambling way in which Hayward had been dealing with tbe woman. THE SVGAB DUTY. The National Livestock Association Favors Ita Repeal. St. Louis, Dec. 6.—A memorial waß introduced at tbe meeting of the na tional livestock exchange today, urging the immediate repeal of the duty on raw sugar, and a modification of that on refined, in order to restore pleasant commercial relatione with foreign na tions that have placed an emoargo on American livestock and dressed beef whicb, it is declared, is due to the atti tude of our tariff measures in relation to sugar.

Democratic Senators Hold Another Important Caucus. AN ORDER OF BUSINESS. The Supplemental Tariff Bills Are Not Included In it. THE CLOTURE DEFEATED. No Change In the Knlea Will Be Made. The —oa Angelea Harbor nam tion—Cong-reealonel Pro ceed iDgje—Notes. By the Associated Press. Washington, Dec. 6. —Today's Demo cratic caucus directed the steering com* mittee to prepare an order of business which will be presented for the consid eration of the senate, embracing the fol lowing subjects of legislation: A bankruptcy bill. A bill for the conatrnotion of the Nioi aragua canal. A currency bill. Bills for tbe admission of Arizona and New Mexico. A bill involving the interests o! ths Indian territory. For the reconsideration of the joint resolution of the house of representa tives on tbe election of United States senators by the people, and sneh other measures, including tbe appropriate—a bills, as the steering committee may ' deem important. Tbat in their report to the canons tha steering oommittee shall provide tba order in whioh the above subjects of legislation shall be considered. The caucns was in cession from 2 nntil 4:40 o'clock today, and almost tha entire time waa devoted to tha discus sion of the first proposition of Senator Daniel, instructing tbe committee on rules to bring in an amendment for a cloture, and the apeochea were at times very spirited. Senators Vest, Vilas, Berry and George made speeches favoring tha proposition, while Senators Gorman, Morgan, Palmer, Harris, Fngb and others opposed it with vigorous warmth. The opponents of a change evidently had the best of the argument fr in tba beginning. It is nnderstood they evoked the ghost of the force bill and urged that if the Republicans ahould get in power they would revive thia meaanre. The protest against tbe proposed ohanges waa so generrl that when a vota was taken no one considered it neoes eary to ask for the ayes and nays. When the oloture provision waa de feated, the friends of tbe tariff bills gave np the fight, considering it un necessary to make any attempt io revive their consideration in view of the oppo sition of a majority of the Republicans, aud because of the fact that any deter mined opposition onder tha rules would ensure tbeir defeat. Hence it ia that thoae billa do not appear in the official list of bills to be presented for the con* sideration of the senate. The order for the preparation of a currency bill by the finance committee carries with it instructions to take tha recommendation of the president and secretary of the treaenry into consider* ation. It is also understood a feasible proposition for the utilization of ailver ia to be included in any currency scheme presented to or by the commit* tee. SENATE PROCEEDINGS. Bleotlon of Hen a torn by tha People Ad* Toeaitd by Turpie. Washington, Dec. 6.—Upon the open* ing of the senate today, Gorman offered a resolntion providing that when tha senate adjourned today it be to Monday. Adopted. Tbe president's message, in response to the senate resolution, sub mitting information as to the arrest o! an American citizen in Peru, was re ceived. Turpie took tbe floor for a carefully prepared report on the resolntion for the election of United States senators by direct vote of the people. He eaid when we recall the harsh discrimina tion, gross charges of pecuniary corrup tion and of fraudulent combination and intrigue, disgraceful and dishonorable to the whole body with wbicb a pro longed senatorial conference or in open assembly, tbe removal of snob an evil should be deemed a prime political ns cessity. It has been said a certain rail way huh chosen a certain senator in a certain state, a certain bank bas chosen another elsewhere, and a certain associa tion of miners and manufacturers have defeated a third. Nothing iB intended to ba assumed here concerning tbe truth or falsity of these accusations, but these charges have existence. The way for their riddance ia plain. If tbe choice of the members of tbis body were left to tbe mays of the voters in the state, tbe charges would be infinitely lessened. Tbey would altogether disaopear if no reasonable grounds could be giveu for their support. At the cloee of Turpie's spencil, Mor gan gave notice that on Monday next be would call up the Nicaragua canal bill with a view to explaining it and making come remarks. Dolph called np tho bill exempting from duty foreign exhibits at the Post land, Ore., exposition and the bill was passed. A bill wae passed for the national ded ication of the Cbickamauga and Chat tanooga national park, bepteutbai 18
