ItlKoronsly Unforced
BALTIMORE Jan 2S Today was blue
Sunday In Baltimore for the first time in
years the Sunday blue laws of Maryland
which In various forms have been upon
the statute books for two centuries were
rigorously and relentlessly enforced
The police force of Baltimore patrolled
the town from Canton to Carroll and from
Locust Point to Waverly In search of vio
lators Milkmen Ice men druggists for
the salo of prescriplicns only were ex
empt All other merchants who were
found selling their wares between mid
night and midnight will be Indicted by the
grand Jury within a few days AH store
keepers were required to comply with the
provisions of the statute Neglect to do
so means unpleasant consequences Cigar
dealers grocers bootblacks fruit dealers
soda water dealers Ice cream nen con
fectioners and stationers who for years
have made no distinction between Sunday
and any other day were compelled to
close their establishments all day
A number of storekeepers placed amus
ing signs in their windows Ouo cigar
store had a large decorated placard read
ing This Is hypocrite day you must
buy Bibles and not cigars
In another store was a sign Procla
mation Renewal of the blue laws Wo
close on Sunday Buy your supplies to
In one large drug store a sign on the
cigar case reads Nothing doing
It is thousht that the law will become
so ridiculous that It will be repealed

TACOMA Wash Jan 23 Fifteen thou
sand men and women arc preparing to go
to Cape Nome on the first steamers sailing
from Dawson and from Pacific Coast ports
Puget Sound shipping authorities believe
that this Is a conservative estimate Ten
to twelve thousand arc already booked or
have applied for passage on steamers sail
ing from Tucona Seattle Portland and
San Francisco It Is not yet certain that
the thirty steamers now In sight can carry
all who want to Join the first rush It Is
rntnldrerl Inn Life hnwever In secure an
more steamers from the Atlantic coast par
ticularly as most of the steamers brought
around two years ago for the Klondike
rush were wrecked on tho Pacific The
only hope of tbcsteamship company there
fore Is that Uttj Coyeninent will release
a number ot trantportt now running to
Manila in time for them to be fitted up
for the Cape Noma trade In that event
at least four more steamers will be sent
north two eaclubythe Empire Steamship
Company and the Pacific Coast Steamship
The North American Mail Steamship
Company contemplates taking two of Its
American steamers from lh Tacoma Hong
Uong route and sending them to Cape Nome
Dawson advices state that the number ot
men going to Nome from there will be
limited only by the carrvlng capacity of the
steamers down the Yukon Four to sit
thousand aro curiam to go Many Klon
dikcrs hare bought canoes or arc building
rafts upon whlth to follow the Ice down

and march across Tu Sdra 200 miles to

Thli great race between the Nome stam
pedera from Klondike and from Puget
Sound promises to be tnc most exciting
feature of the rush northward Those ar
riving first will obtain the beil beach
claims which are considered the most de
sirable part of the Nome gold fields since
they can be worked by poor men having
only rockers Thousands more will go to

capacity for a dozen battleship at a time
The property on which the ard Is locatel
has a frontage on the Delaware River ct
3600 feet and an area of 130 acres and

miicil Toilny y Mr Tlllmnii The
Uuny tnie to llr Considered
It Is the Intention ot leaders on both
sides of the Senate to Inflst upon a gen
eral debate of the Currency bill to tbe
exclusion of other matters which have
crowded out the financial measure re
Senator Teller has declared that while
he did not like to b discourteous to any
Senator who would like to speak he should
insist after today that nothing not even
the courtesy of the Senate shall allow tho
Currency bill to be set aildo It anyone
wants to speak on It Mr Teller stated
further that he knew ot several Senators
who desire lo speak on the measure and
that he should take It upon himself to set
that they arc given an opportunity each
day after 2 oclock
Mr Pettlgrcw spoke of the difference be
tween the House Llll and the Senate sub
stitute and said that he preferred to wait
for a conference report before submitting
any remarks
Mr Allen explained that he had up to
this timo been unablo to prepare his
speech owing to the peculiar position In
which he hud been placed by tho death of
the gentleman who had been elected to
succeed him in the Senate
A number of other Senators cxnrcssed
their intention to speak on tho bill but
gave various reasons for not doing so last
neck several of these will take an oppor
tunity of addressing the Senate this week
since the vote on the bill Is to be taken on
tho litli of February and but little timo
Is now left for the many speeches that aro
to be delivered
Mr Allen In some remarks mado by him
last week taunted Mr Aldrlch Chairman
of the Finance Committee for the manner
in which the speech ot the latter had been
treated by Mr Teller and added that he
had supposed that Mr Allison or some
equally well informed and experienced
Senator would rc enforce the Senator
from Rhode Island but that ho seemed to
be left without support It Is probable that
some of the older Senators of the majority
will lake up this challenge and during the
present week will reply to tho speeches
that have been made by the opposition
Mr Tillman gave notice last Thursday
that Immediately after the completion ot
the routine morning business today be Will
call up the various resolutions on the Phil
