third case in eighteen days. The victim

Early on the 4th inst. there was an j

There was great activity of the police, and
at 11 a. m. the tug Eleu went in pursuit of >

considered probable that there waa a land

Prevailing opinion derides the idea that
any filibusters intend to make an attempt
here. Colonel McLean availed himself of
the excitement to order an impromptu i
rally of the volunteer companies for a

There is a large and rapidly growing
sentiment in favor of disbanding the
standing army, and its fate may be con
sidered as settled already. With a volun
teer cavalry company, six volunteer in
fantry companies and the Citizens' Guard
people think the republic ought to be safe
without supporting a useless standing
army whose piincipal work consists in
drawing down salaries to the amount of
$40,000 a year. The expenses incident to
the cholera epidemic have already ex
hausted more than that amount, and the
bills are not all in yet. Retrenchment is in
order in every department of the Govern
ment, as all the appropriations run out
next February, and the regular session of
the Legislature, which convenes that
month, will be apt to use the pruning
knife with much dexterity and frequency.
Princess Poomaikelani died on the 6th

most of which goes to the latter, who is
already very wealthy. Her funeral took
place at Pt. Andrew's Cathedral, Bishop

large concourse of natives. Deceased was
at one time the representative of the
crown on the island of Hawaii. On ac
count of her former prominence in public
affairs the Government tendered the use

funeral, which was accepted. The Princess

CAMPAIGN OF REED.
First Gun Fired in the
Battle of the Maine
RACE FOR PRESIDENCY.
It Was Commenced Before Fol

DID HOT REFEE TO OPPONENTS.
Energies to Be Confined to Stump-
Ing Doubtful Ground In the
South and West.
PORTLAND, Me., Oct. 14.— Active work
has at last begun in the great Presidential
race, and from now on the struggle will be
in progress. Almost simultaneously with
the departure of Hon. Joseph Manley for
the West, Hon. Thomas B. Reed, on whom
Eastern Republicans are placing all their
hopes, made his initial effort for a place in
the public favor.
The audience which packed the opera
house to-night was one of the largest and
most enthusiastic that ever gathered to
gether at any campaign in the State of
Maine, the announcement that "Tom"
Reed was to take the stump in his own be
half serving to draw politicians from all
over the East. Mr. Reed returned from
his vacation on Friday, and at once, after
a conference with his managers and con
siderable correspondence with the man
agers at Washington, decided to resume
active political work. As a result the meet
ing was called in the ODera-house to-night.
The ex-Speaker was never in better
form and his remarks captured his au-
dience, and be was recipient of one of the
most vociferous demonstrations ever ac
corded any person in the East. His re
marks were very brief, as he was to go to
Washington at once. They were confined
to a resume of his record in political life
and an exhortation to Eastern politicians
to stand together.
During his entire speech he did not refer
to any of his opponents or to the great
questions of the day. This will be prac
tically all the stumping that Mr. Reed
will make in his own State, as it is the
opinion of his managers that not a single
trace of opposition will formulate. He
will leave for Washington to-night and his
campaign in the future will be carried on
in the South and West, where it is thought
that opposition will be found. This action
is the result of a conference of the party
leaders held last Wednesday at the Capi
tol, when it was decided that as New Eng
land was undoubtedly solid, the whole
time spent in the campaign should be de
voted to stumping the remainder of the
When seen to-night Mr. Reed refused to
have anything further to say concerning
his campaign, excepting to say that the
whole matter was entirely in the hands of
A.S TO THIRD TERMS.
Statesmen Pointedly Express Their
Views on the Question.
WASHINGTON, D. C, Oct. 14.— Among
the Pacific Coast Congress^ \.i who re
sponded to the Washington's Post's re
quest for expressions of their views on the
question of a third Presidential term and
the advisability of Congress adopting
Springer's anti - third - term resolution,
which was passed by Congress in 1875, are
Johnson and Bowers of California, Her
mann and Ellis of Oregon and Doolittie
of Washington. The letters of Johnson,
Bowers, Hermann and Doolittie are pub
lished as follows:
SACRAMENTO, Cau— l would vot« for a
resolution if one were introduced, although I
think it is not the business of the House to
pass such resolutions. Springer's resolution
was mere buncomb, sntended to hurt Grant,
and similar resolutions would be mere bun
combe, intended to hurt Cleveland, promoted
in both cases by partisan rancor. I feel certain
that we will never see a third term President.
Grove L. Johnson.
SAN DIEGO, Cal.— l would vote for the reso
lutlon, but I would rather vote for a resolution
denouncing a second term. The making of a
President ineligible for re-election in any case
would be the longest step on the road to good
government that this Nation could make.
Then the President would have time to attend
to business for which he is elected, instead of,
as now, spending all his waking hours in de
vising ways and means to obtain re-election,
making mere valets of all officers appointed by
him, whose paramount duty is to pack conven
tions in his interest. It is a pity the incum
bent cannot be renominated. It would effectu
ally settle the "third-term" question, for after
election one could carry out on a chip all the
remnants left of the third-term candidate and
his party. W. W. Bowers.
ROSEBURG, Ok.— lf a resolution similar to
the one quoted should be Introduced in the ap
proaching session of Congress, I shall feel it my
duty to vote against it. It has become a well
recognized part of our republican system of
government, confirmed by many illustrious
precedents, that the holding of Presidential
office should not exceed two terms. The rea
son for this unwriti .n law is obvjou», and it is
difficult at this time to conceive of any circum
stances or of any emergencies which could
justify a departure from the long and well
established custom. Binges Hermann.
TACOMA, Wash.— Should the tenure of the
Presidential office of one man be extended over
more than two terms, especially in case an ex
ceptionally qualiiied man was thus continued
in office, the tendency would be toward con
tinued reliance on the part of the people in the
man and his qualifications, in contradiction of
the spirit of republicanism in its broad sense.
I believe we may take it as a settled policy,
which has grown out of the wisdom of the
people, that no man shall hold the Presidential
office more than two terms.

IXTEBESTISG TO POLITICIANS.
Decision as to the Bights of a Candi
COUNCIL BLUFFS, lowa, Oct. 14. -A
decision very important to the legal fra
ternity and incidentally to politicians was
rendered to-day by Judge T. M. Ellwood
at Denison, lowa, of the Circuit Court in
the mandamus case of 0. W. Lowrey vs.
Lee Davis, Auditor of Greene County,
lowa. Mr. Lowrey was nominated by
petition for Representative and in his peti
tion he stated his party politics to be Re
publican. The Republican party in county
convention nominated C. A. Smith for the
office. The Auditor held thai, the nomina
tion was improper and refused to have it
printed on the ballot.
The court held that by section 6 of the
election law Mr. Lowrey was compelled to
state his party politics, and might have
also designated some suitable appellation
under which his name should be printed
on the ballot, but not having done so, the
Auditor is compelled by section 14 of the
same law to make a suitable appellation
for the ticket on the ballot in which the
name of the nominee by petition should
be printed and to cause it printed on the
ballot, and that it could not be printed in
the Republican ticket on the ballot.

"Young Utah" Expects to Work Out
the Salvation of the
SALT LAKE, Utah, Oct. 14.— A terrible
upheaval in the political situation of Utah
has been precipitated here. The trouble
is all caused by the first presidency of the
Mormon church, which is composed of
President Wilford Woodruff and his coun
selors, George Q. Cannon and Joseph F.
Smith. On Monday of last week the two
last named gentlemen, in a priesthood
meeting, aenounced Moses Thatcher and
B. H. Roberts, Democrats, for going into
politics without first consulting the church
authorities. Both Thatcher and Roberts
are high ecclesiastical officials in the Mor
mon church, and are more recently can
didates for United States Senator and
Congressman respectively, from Utah, on
the Democratic ticket.
The Argus (Republican) on Saturday
came out with a double-leaded editorial
ana also a long account of the trouble,
claiming that the criticism meant in brief
that the first presidency is anxious for a
Democratic defeat. The Argus claims
that it is a resumption of the old fight of
Mormon against Gentile, and says it pre
fers a Republican defeat rather than a
victory through priesthood rule.
The Herald (Democratic) strongly de
nounces the remarks of Smith and Cannon
ana quotes Chairman Powers of the State
Democratic Committee as saying that the
Democratic party will probably withdraw
its ticket unless the authorities recede in
their action and further that the people
will be asked to vote against the constitu
tion, which means the defeat of statehood.
President Woodruff to-day says that the
remarks of Cannon and Smith were cor
rect ; that they bat laid down a rule of the
Mormon church in telling its high
dignitaries to keep out of politics and to
not engage in any other than ecclesiastical
B. H. Roberts, one of the candidates
criticized, says to-day that he is willing to
yield to the church in all things, but he
was nominated as a member of the consti
tutional convention and was not criticized
and more recently was nominated for
Congress and heard no complaint. "He
loves the church," he says, "but is going
to fight for political liberty."
The affair has caused the greatest sensa
tion. Old timers claim it is a reopening of
the rule of the priesthood and means sev
eral important things — the withdrawal of
the Democratic ticket, a victory for the
Republicans, the seceding of some of the
most prominent Mormon Democrats from
the church or the utter defeat of statehood
The Evening Telegram to-night quotes
Chairman Powers of the State Democratic
Committee, in a long interview, under a
scare head, "Desperate Democracy."
Powers talks of his party voting against
statehood and hundreds of Republicans
joining him with the Democrats in the
abandonment of National party lines and
the reorganization of the old Liberal or
The Telegram also has a column edi
torial to-night on the trouble. In the ar
ticle is the following paragraph : "From a
Republican standpoint, the situation is
most alarming. It has been our firm be
lief that Republicanism would certainly
triumph in this section, but victory in the
face of such menacing blows at statehood
is hardly worth the effort. Statehood can
not be obtained if some conciliatory meas
ures are not adopted and the breach closed
between the church and Democracy, and
the overtures must be sufficiently strong
to convince a Democratic President and a
Gentile people that a free, untrammeled ex
pression of the voters can be obtained."
Hon. C. W. Bennett of the Republican
party said to-day: "It is just a stage play
on the part of Powers, who, seeing the in
evitable defeat of Democracy, makes such
a theatrical side-light play to try and stem
the tide of defeat that will surely over
whelm them. Ido not think any question
in regard to a revival of the old Liberal
party has been raised."
A meeting of the State Democratic Com
mittee was held to-night to consider the
advisability of reassembling the State Con
vention. One thought is uppermost in the
minds of all leading politicians to-day and
that is, If Thatcher and Roberts can hold
out against the Mormon church it will
cause a split in that powerful organization,
a dream of years on the part of fair
minded men. With a split in the church
all fears of priestly rule will be done away
with and Utah will be ready to enter the
Union free in every respect. In this wish
the whole of "Young Utah" agrees with
the leading representatives of the Gentile
population in both the National parties.
In the overthrow of the old heads of Utah
is the salvation # of the Territory.
At the meeting of the State Democratic
Committee held at Unity Hall to-night the
anticipated call was made. O. W. Powers
was chairman of the meeting and made a
fiery and magnificent speech. An address
was issued to the people and a call made
for the reconvening of the State convention
on October 22, when a declaration of polit
ical independence will be made on the
issue of Mormon church interference in
the political questions of the day. The
meeting was an enthusiastic one, and its
work but heightens the excitement.
AZL EYES TIP OK UTAH.
Democrats and Republicans Equally
Atirloum Over the Outcome.
WASHINGTON, D. C, Oct. 14.— The dis
patches from Salt Lake published in Wash
ington newspapers giving an account of
the political situation in Utah, especially
the Senatorial contest, were read with
great interest here to-day. The politicians
who are personally concerned in the po
litical complexion and organization of the
next Senate are eagerly watching for every
word of news from Utah. Sergeant-at-
Arms Bright to-day figured out that there
are now on his latest list, as published by
the Senate secretary, forty-two straight
out Republicans, thirty-nine straight-out
Democrats, and four pronounced Populists,
viz., Allen of Nebraska, Kyle of South
Dakota, Peffer of Kansas and Stewart of
Nevada. Jones of Nevada and Marion
Butler of North Carolina are classed as
doubtful, though it is believed that on all
questions other than silver Jones would
affiliate with the Republicans and Butler
with the Democrats. If this proves true
the Republican strength will be forty
three, Democratic forty, Populists four.
There is one vacancy (Delaware), and if
Dupont is seated from that State the Re
publicans will have forty-four Senators.
Should two Republicans be elected in
Utah they would have forty-six Senators
out of ninety, or a controlling majority.
Should two Democrats be elected from
Utah the Republicans could not organize
without aid from the Populists. The report
that Chairman Powers threatens to form
an independent party opposed to church
politics creates an apprehension among
leading Democrats here that there is dan
ger of their losing the two Utah Senators
who they have been confidently expect
ing to aid them in preventing the Republi
cans from securing control of both branches
Hard to Find a Successor for
the Retired Division
General Cralghlll Pays a Glowing
Tribute to the Noted En
WASHINGTON, D. C, Oct. 14.— The
Call correspondent asked Secretary La
mont to-day who would succeed Colonel
Mendell as division chief of engineers for
the Pacific Coast. He said that he had as
yet given the matter little consideration,
and that in making his selection he would
probably be influenced largely by the rec
ommendation of the chief of engineers,
General Craighill. The latter being seen
"The selection of a successor to such a
competent engineer as Colonel Mendell is
a matter which should be carefully con
sidered. There is no especial hurry, and
it may be that this assignment will not be
made within thirty days. The appoint
ment will probably be made from among
engineers now stationed in the East, inas
much as there is no engineer of that high
rank now on the Pacific Coast with the
exception of Colonel Benyaurd, and I fear
that his health would not permit him to
accept this assignment or to discharge the
duties. It takes a colonel or a lieutenant
colonel to fill Colonel Mendell's shoes, and
although Major Heuer is a very able engi
neer, he is outranked by others."
General Craichill paid a very high trib
ute to Colonel Mendell: "He is an able,
honest man, a very competent engineer. I
have known him for forty years and have
worked with him. I feel his loss as sorely
as does a draught horse who has lost his

Gutierrez Says the General Will Be

SAN SALVADOR, Oct. 14.— Though de
nied by the Government, a report is cur
rent, on what seems the best of authority,
that fourteen political prisoners were
forced to work on the road near La Liber
tad, and after being most cruelly treated,
and even subjected to tortures to make
them confess the names of persons impli
cated in the conspiracy against the Gov
ernment, were shot Saturday afternoon.
A number of other prisoners, who pro
tested and made other signs of grief and
disapprobation at the fate of their com
rades, were cruelly beaten by the soldier*,
as a result of which three died. Cases of
cruelties to prisoners, often resulting in
their death, are daily more frequent. The
press insists that the Government order an
investigation of these cruelties. The
country is flooded with new Ezeta revolu
tionary proclamations, dated Acapulco.
There is not a day without arrests on
suspicion of being implicated in some sup
posed revolutionary conspiracy, and it is
even claimed that a plot to assassinate
President Gutierrez and a number of his
principal adherents nas been discovered.
Troops are being constantly forwarded to
the principal points on the coast. Deser
tions from the army continue, and yester
day afternoon the guard at the artillery
barracks in this city, to the number of
twenty-six, deserted in a body, taking
their arms with them, and orders have
been issued that deserters from the army
are to be shot whenever captured.
President Gutierrez is again reported to
be anxious to resign and go abroad, but nia
partisans, fearing that if he goes Vice-
President Prudencio Alfaro, will make an
entire change of the Government and place
his own partisans (Liberals) into power,
oppose this move on the part of Gutierrez.
The army is entirely favorable to Alfaro
and opposed to Gutierrez. A mmor is now
current here that the Conservatives, with
Jaointo Castellanos at their head, have
proposed a coalition to General Manuel
Rivas against Alfaro, offering to place
Rivas into power provided he rids them ot
Alfaro. It is furthermore claimed that the
clergy all over th« country favor the pJans
of Castellanos, and have bound themselves
to preach to that effect. The reports cur
rent here for the last few days that the
Liberals had been offered support from
Guatemala in case of trouble are officially
denied by both parties. The Government
claims that the most harmonious feeling
now exists between the Governments of the
It is officially denied that this Govern
ment has requested that of Mexico to take
any steps against General Antonio Ezeta,
who is now at Acapulco. A prominent
official here told the correspondent thataa
emissary of Antonio Ezeta made propo
sitions to the Government here that he
(Ezeta) would go to Europe and never
trouble the Government if given a sum of
money, but that President Gutierrez re
jected this proposition with indignation,
and told the emissary that he should be
glad to see Ezeta invade this country, for
an indignant people would soon lynch
him. It is also stated that this emissary
was ordered to leave the country within
forty-eight hours, which he did.
The Government denies the reports of
an attack on the custom-house at La
Union and the robbery there of cash and
goods to the value of near $1,000,000.
GUATEMALA, Oct. 14.— The reports of
a secret alliance between this country and
Costa Rica against any aggression by
Nicaragua, Salvador and Honduras are of
ficially denied, but on the contrary it is
now stated that this Government has
lately entered into new treaties with the
Governments of Salvador, Honduras and
Nicaragua, which it is claimed are but the
precursors of the long desired Central
American union. It is again officially
claimed that this Government was notified
of what was done by the Presidents of
those three countries in their interview at
Amapala when the preliminary steps were
taken for the formation of the new repub
lic to be called La Republica Mayor da
Centro America (the Greater Republic of
Central America), which republic is by no
means a fact as yet. President Barrios is
Known to have said that he will under no
circumstances interfere in the affairs of
the Centro America, and that if the new
republic is organized he will be very glad
of it, for instead of this creating discord in
Central America it will be productive of
greater harmony than ever before.
A sharp lookout has been ordered for
Antonio Ezeta, who, it is reported, pro
poses to make his way overland from Aca
pulco to San Salvador, and if be is cap
tured in Guatemala he will surely be shot.
