Austrian-Hungarian Kitchen and Fine Cuisine All Day AN IRISH SILVERITE TALKS ON THE PROGRESS OF BIMETALLISM Indian Mints Likely* to Be Reopened Effect of Action by the Bank of England VANCOUVER, B. C, Sept. 27.—James Roche, M. P. for East Kerry, Is now in the Slocan district of Kootenai. Mr. Roche is deeply interested in the silver question, and as he was a member of the conference that recently dealt with that question in Ireland, his views should prove interesting. In an interview Mr. Roche said: "We have- the strongest assurance from Mr. Chamberlain and Mr. Balfour that an Internaitional conference will be called at Brussels in May. I think the business transacted at Brussels will re sult in the reopening of the Indlian mints at least. Senator Walcott, of whom so much has been heard on the bimetallic question, is an exceedingly able man and a powerful champion of the cause. Though considered a free lance by the public generally in the voicing of his views while in England, I have the strongest reasons for believing that he was an accredited representative of the United States on that occasion. Next to the United. States, the strongest sup porters of bimetallism are the French, and I think the recent aotion of the Bank of England, which has given rise to so much discussion, was the outcome of diplomatic representations made by the French. I believe we have not done as much for the cause in two or three years •s the Bank of England has done at one stroke. PERUVIAN MINES They Fan Out Nothing But Broken Constitutions SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 27.—Three members of the expedition which went to Peru last March, in charge of ex-Po lice Sergeant Johns, have- returned to this city. They tell a story of privation and hard luck and give anything but a glowing account of the so-called. Peru vian gold fields. J. P. Stalford, an engineer, one of the returned miners, is at St. Luke's hospital broken down in health as a result of his venture. The others members of the ex pedition who are now in the city ar- George Glenny and' R. A. Boone. The party went direct to Mollendo and. from there set out for the gold fields. The natives, when questioned concerning the treasures, which were said to exist, either would not or could not tell where the locations were. More Fair Litigation SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 27.—A suit was begun today by Robert Miller, in the name of the people of the state, to enjoin Warren and Malley, contractors, and the executors and heirs of the es tate of the late Senator Fair from con tinuing the work of reclaiming land at North Beach. A similar suit was begun In the United-States court some time ago. Miller alleges in his complaint that the land now being filled In at the foot of Webster and Fillmore streets is within the limits of state property, subject, however, to the claims of the United States. Judge Seawell issued an injunc tion pending the hearing of the suit. Bank Reports SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 27.—The bank commissioners have submitted their report to Governor Budd.

HENRY GEORGE NAMED FOB MA YOB OF GREATER NEW YOBK If Tammany Endorses the Chicago Platform George Will Decline. Politicians Are Worried NEW YORK, Sept. 27.—The most important development in the Greater New York political situation today was the unanimous nomination of Henry George for mayor by the United Democ racy, composed of numerous free sliver and: Bryan clubs. The convention nominated John G. Boyle for controller, and Wlnfieldi S. Overton for president of the municipal council. A belief Is current that Mr. George will not accept tonight's nomination if Tam many e-ndorses the Chicago platform. On the other hand, the old time Dem ocratic leaders prefer to ignore the sil ver question altogether. So trie Demo crats are as much worried, over Henry George as the Republicans are over Seth Low. The Republican assembly district lead ers of the borough of Manhattan met tonight and after a long conference de cided to place In nomination, at the city convention the following: Mayor, Benjamin F. Tracy; comptrol ler, AshbelP. Fitch; counsel, Ross Ap pleton. At a meeting of the executive commit tee of Tammany Hall today the roll of assembly districts for nominations for city and county officers was called, with the following results: Mayor, William Schiermer, George B. McClellan, Charles J. Knox; president of the borough, George W. Plunkett, Charles F. Allen; comperoller, Ashbel P. Fitch. Much stir was created) In political cir cles today by the publication of a letter purporting to have been sent to Col. William L. Brown of the New York Daily News by Hon. William J. Bryan, urging that the municipal campaign in Greater New York should be run in harmony with the principles and declarations of the national organization.

THE HERALD NO CLASH OVER CUBA To Result From Wood= ford's Mission FURTHER CORRESPONDENCE MAT FIND A SOLUTION OF THE DIFFICULTY McKinley Will Take No Hasty Ac tion and Will Probably Refer the Matter to Congress Associated Press Special Wire. NEW YORK, Sept. 27.—A special to the Herald from Washington says: The possibility of a rupture between the United States and Spain, growing out of the representations recently made to the Madrid authorities by Minister Woodford, is regarded as very remote by State Department officials. A member of the Cabinet last night gave your correspondent the informa tion that the President would not act hastily in any event. It ls probable, ac cording to my informant, that there would be further correspondence between Washington and Madrid and that unless some solution of the difficulty should be reached in the meantime, the President would communicate full Information to Congress at the beginning of the session in December and be guided by the ac tion of that body. General Woodford told the premier that he had not visited him yesterday because it was Sunday. He expressed his Arm intention' to work unceasingly to promote good relations between the United States and Spain. General Azcarraga uttered similar sentiments in reply. Before leaving General Woodford ©aid he had been greatly touched by the sym pathetic welcome given him by 'the queen regent. Then, accompanied by his secretary, he paid a formal visit to the Marquis de Amposta, under secre tary of state. In consequence of revelations as to an anarchist plot, the police arretted six an archists today. A number of bombs have been discovered. EXPEDITIONS LANDED NEW YORK, Sept. 27. —A dispatch tc the Herald from Fensacola, Fla., says: It is known, here that the Sommers L. Smith has landed, several expeditions of men, arms and ammunition In Cuba dur ing her twenty-six days' voyage, from Mobile to this port. Her expeditions were without serious mishap, although she was once nearly captured by the gunboat Helena. TWO TYPICAL CASES NEW YORK, Sept. 27.—The Journa! and Advertiser says: Three years ago Mis 9 Eloise Brunet was the belle of Cienfuegos, Cuba. She was healthy and rich. Now she lies upon a cot in an eight by ten room in a small house on the outskirts of Philadelphia, her throat parched with fever, her mind racked by terror of the Spaniards, her memory full of the horrors of an experience abounding in starvation, suffering and peril. In her delirium she cries pitifully for protection against the Spaniards, who she thinks are trying to murder her. In a similar condition, aggravated by wounds, ls Dr. Andrew Brunet, who served as a Major in the Cuban army. The father of these refugees was an American who owned a large estate at Cienfuegos. He died in 1893, and his son, Dr. Brunet, went to Cuba to settle up the estate. The Spanish administra tion of such affairs made this a long and difficult task. In September, 1895, Gen. Rego raised the Cuban standard in the Cienfuegos district and the young Cuban-American was one of the first to Join him. It was impossible for his sis ter to remain or. the plantation and she therefore went into the Cuban service as a nurse. For twenty months she shared the hardships of the patriots with scarcely sufficient food and with never a roof over her or a bed to lie upon. She remained bravely in the Cuban army, caring for the sick and wounded, helping to cook the scant provisions- and proving herself a heroine on many oc casions. After twenty months of this life, they both contracted malarial fever, and. were so ill that they had to leave the insurgent army and seek shelter. ar.d they were compelled to take refuge in a cave, where they lived for twenty-three weeks, with no food but some green pumpkins, half baked sweet potatoes and water from a stagnant pool. Finally the brother maraged to climb the hill and attract the attention of a Spanish planter, who took them to Sierra, whence they were taken by boat to Cienfuegos. Dr. Brunet appealed to the American. Consul, Owen McGarr, for aid, but it was refused. There followed a long correspondence with the State Depart ment at Washington ard in the end the Consul was ordered to help them. They received their passports on the 13th of August and sailed for New York. Dr. Brunet and his sister have filed a claim at Washington agairst the Span ish government for the destruction of their property at Cienfuegos. A CUBAN FLEET BERLIN, Sept. 27.—A dispatch to the Frankfurter Zeitung from Madrid as serts that a powerful Spanish squadron will immediately proceed to Cuba on the pretext of attending the installation of the new floating dock at Havana, but really as an answer to the dispatch of an American flotilla to Florida wa ters. WHOLLY FRIENDLY HAVANA, Sept. 27.—The Madrid cor respondent of La Lucha cables his paper that he has had an, Interview with the United States minister as to the Cuban ■ situation and that Gen. Woodford de scribed his mission to Spain as "wholly friendly" and for the purpose of offer LOS ANGELES, TUESDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 28, J897 ing "the good ofTicesof the United Stat=3 to establish peace in Cuba." Accused of the Ruin of Another Man's < Wife SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 27.— H. N. Deppe, a school teacher at Fifteenth and Shotwell streets, this evening shot and seriously wounded Joe Zammitt, a member of truck company No. 3. The i shooting took place in front of the fire house, at 1421 Market street, where Zam mitt is stationed. The bullet entered the fireman's side, passed through the left upper portion of the abdomen and per forated the intestines. Deppe was ar rested and locked up in the city prison on a charge of assault to murder. According to the story of the wounded man, he was standing in front of the truck house with Maurice Higgins, also a member of the company, when Deppe accosted them. Without a word-of warn ing Deppe drew a revolver, and placing the muzzle against the victims' side, [fired. Policeman Livingston was pass the house at the time, and he seized Deppe just as the latter was about to fire a second shot. Deppe, when asked why he had shot the fireman, declared that he had ruined his family. Zammlt denied the story told by his assailant. He says he is acquinted with Mrs. Deppe, but nevei-Msited her during the absence of her husband. SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 27.—Calvin Nutting, the weli-konwn iron founder and contractor, was so badly injured by a Mission-street electric car today that he is now lying at the Harbor hospital suffering from paralysis, occasioned by concussion of the spine. Mr. Nutting was crosing Mission street at the corner of Fremont when he was struck by a car. He grasped the woodwork and thus saved himself from being crushed under the wheels. He lost his grip and was rolled over several times before the car was stopped. He was badly bruised, but the most serious Injury was to his spine, which has caused paralysis of the lower part of the body. It is a singular fact that Mr. Nutting has patented two street-car fenders which he has tried to have the supervicors adopt. PEORIA, 111., Sept. 27 —W. V. Powell grand chief of the order of Railway Telegraphers, and H. Pelham, grand secretary and treasurer, were today held in $600 bonds to the federal grand Jury on a charge of violating the alien con tract labor law, they waiving exam ination.

The in crease that will be shown In receipts from internal revenue sources seems to justify the expectation of the treasury officials that by Jaunary Ist next the deficit will have been reduced to a nom inal amount. The excess of expendi tures over receipts so far this month amounts to something over $3,250,000, but it is expected that by October Ist this excess will have been reduced to $3,000,000 or less, making the deficit for the first quarter of the fiscal year about $28,000,000. Internal revenue officials cali attention to the fact that already the receipts from internal revenue exceed those of last year by about $6,000,000. and confidently predict that by January Ist this increase will have reached $7,000,000, and possibly $8,000,000. The receipts from customs so fir show no material gains, nor is it expected that any substantial improvement will be shown until after the first of the year The expenditures on account of the Pa cific roads at the beginning of the year will be exceptionally heavy. On Janu ary Ist there will be due matured bonds of the Central Pacific to the amount of $10,614,120; Union Pacific, $15,919,512; Kansas Pacific, $1,423,000; central branch of the Union Pacific, $320,000; Sioux City and Pacific, 1,628,320; making a total of $29,904,952. In addition to this amount the interest payments on January Ist will aggregate approximately $7,000,000. If, however, the offer of the reorganiza tion of the Union Pacific is accepted, about $40,000,000 would be added to the available cash in the treasury and would reduce the January payments on the account of the Pacific railroads by about $17,000,000. Estimating the deficit for the next three months at $17,000,000, exclusive of the payments on account of the Pacific railroads, the available cash balance in the treasury at the close of the first half of the fiscal year would be about $10,000,000 in excess of the pres ent figures, or $225,000,000. This would be a net loss for the six months of $15,000,000. Summing the situation up, the treasury officials confidently pre dict that before the close of the calen dar year the receipts will fully equal or exceed the needs of the government. B. & O. BATTLES Morgan Wants Control—and Prob ably Will Take It NEW YORK, Sept. 27.—The World says: J. Pierrepont Morgan is about to engage in a struggle for the control of the Baltimore and Ohio Railway. The fight will come after October Ist, when Mr. Morgan, according to good author ity, will try to seize the property through foreclosure proceedings. The receivers of the road will, in be half of the Baltimore interests and cer tain New York interests, endeavor to forestall Mr. Morgan. Up to the pres ent, the receivers of the Baltimore and Ohio have defaulted to the extent of about $3,000,000 of the annual fixed charges. In addition, dividends amount ing to $465,000 per annum have beer passed ard remain unpaid on the Wash ington branch and Baltimore and Ohio stock. The great legal battle will be between J. P. Morgan & Co. and; various capitalists who are friendly to that house on the one side, and what may be termed a syndicate, the members of which, In par.t are Speyer & Co. and prominent New York bankers, on the other, and ranged with them the Baltimore interests in the road. California Fruit Sales SAN FRANCISCO. Sept. 27— J. A. Fileher of the state board of trade is in receipt of a letter from J.

Twenty pound boxes of pears sold for from $2.50 to $4.50. The fruit was beautifully packed- and arrived in the very pink of condition.

TWO WRECKS Each Bringing Death to a Bailroad Man PORT BRAGG, Cel., Sept. 27.—An ac cident on the Fort Bragg railroad this afternoon resulted in the instant death of Jasper Nowdesha, a locomotive fire man.

THE WILY JAP Still Preparing to Take Possession of Hawaii WASHINGTON, Sept. 27.—Rear- Admiral Miller, in command of the Pa cific station, who is now at Honolulu on the flagship Philadelphia, believes that Japan is planning to prevent the annex ation of the islands to the United States, and has notified the Navy Department to that effect. His dispatch, brought on the Moana and telegraphed from San Francisco, was very brief, but it caused considerable consternation at the Navy Department and resulted in sending the Wheeling to Honolulu in post haste. According to a high official in the Navy Department, Admiral Miller's dispatch read as follows: "The Japan ese cruiser Naniwa has left this port, but is under orders to return at a stated time." It is stated on undisputed authority that the dispatches from the Secretary of the Navy instruct Admiral Miller to closeiy watch every move made by the Japanese, and at the very first sign of any unusual step to hoist the Stars and Stripes over the islands again and to hold them against all opposition.

THE JURY'S VERDICT Over the Death of Latimer Strikers MEN MARCHING PEACEABLY INTERCEPTED AND KILLED WITHOUT MERCY Two Timid Jurors Fear to Find That the Killing Was Wanton and Uujußtiflable As»ociated Press Special Wire. HAZLETON, Pa., Sept. 27.—The corr oner's Jury which investigated, the deaths of the strikers at Latimer In Deputy Coroner Coffman's office this evening, after an hour's dtellberatiotn, rendered tVe following verdict: That from the circumstances of the case, and from evidence received, that said Clement Platock, with othere, came to his death by gunshot wounds on Sep tember 10th, 1897, at the hands of Sheriff James Martin and deputies, and In this we, the jury, do alii agree, and we, Phil. • J. Boyle, Thomas T. Thomas, Barton Fress and Peter McKiernan, of this Jury, do further say that the said Clement Platock, with others, was marching peaceably and unarmed on the public highway; that they were intercepted! by ealdi Sheriff Martin and his deputies and mercilessly shot to death, and we do fur ther And that the killing was unneces sary, and could have been avoided with out serious injury to either person or property, and we flnd v finally, that the killing was wanton and unjustifiable, but in this, we, George Maue and F. j.

A BLOODY BIOT Growing Out of the Trouble at Hazleton GIRARDVILLE, Sept. 27.—At leaat nine men received fatal Injuries and pos sibly two score others were more or less seriously wounded In a bloody riot here late last night and early this morning. The battle was the outcome of a quarrej over the Hazleton troubles. Thirty-six men. are known to have been wounded anci about fifty more are being secreted by their friends, who fear they wO be sent to jail. Twelve of the ringleaders were brought before Justice Etias Kissinger and ten before Justice Jobneon. All were charged with assault with intent to kill, housebreaking an<} rioting, and were held in heavy bail for court. Many more warrants have been issued but have not been served as yet. Dr. Charles Schlessman attended to twenty-two of the wounded-, nine of whom he says will die. Drs. William Monoghan and James Donohue attended to fourteen others, and how many the other physicians cared for is not known. Three other men have been reported dead but this cannot be verified yet on account of the uncommunicative nature of the participants. The story of the riot ls as follows: Several hundred Polanders boarded at William Cullacabbage's hotel on Second street. Joseph Cavendish ls the pro prietor of the hotel at the east end of town where several hundtred more Po landers make their headquarters. Bad blood has existed between them for a long time, and the recent strike troubles at Hazleton embittered, them still more. Last night matters came to a crisis. Cullacabbage, it is charged, and his fol lowers, to the number of several hun dred, arming themselves with guns, re volvers, knives, axes and clubs, marched to Cavendish's hotel, where several hundred of their enemies were celebrat ing pay day. The Cavendish men as certained! that their foes were marching upon them and arming themselves hurriedly, awaited their arrival. After a demonstrative march the Cullacab bage contingent arrived and immediate ly stormed the saloon. Then a bloody battle ensued. The men fought like demons, the shooting was fast and furious, and exes, knives, clubs and other weapons were used with deadly effect. The battle lasted almost an hour, when ihe Cullacabbage gang was routed, leaving their wounded be hind. Everything in the house was smashed and the floors were strewn with wounded men. The walls were bespattered with blood and shreds of human flesh. After the rioters had returned; to their headquarters, the Cavendish gang armed themselves to the teeth and marched to their enemies' rendezvous, where a battle, still bloodier than the first, ensued The police force and the constables of the surrounding region were called to the scene, but were un able to cope with the rioting horde, who continued hostilities until morning. The townspeople did not sleep a wink all night and while they watched the progress of the fight during the night, they made no attempt to interfere. The place was in an uproar, but all to quiet now and no more trouble ls em ticipated. It is thought that after the excitement subsides most of the guilty parties will be arrested. The residences of many cltisens were damaged and several outsiders were wounded. Captured by Bandits TOLEDO, Sept. 27.—Harry Tollerton, aged 20 years, son of Attorney Tollerton, and Prof. Daniel J.
