MERRY IS
MINISTER
Envoy Extraordinary to
Central American
States.
NOMINATION SENT TO
THE SENATE.
Appointment Considered as
Favoring the Nicaragua
Canal.
THE DIEl'3 OPPOSITION WAS
CIRCUMVENTED.
Probable Technical Error in the
State Department, but Con
firmation Certain.
WASHINGTON, D. C., July 14.— The
nomination of Captain William L Merry
of San Francisco to bo Minister to Nica
ragua was sent to the Senate to- J ay, as
predicted in The Call dispatches. The
official title is Envoy Extraordinary and
Minister Plenipotentiary to Nicaragua,
Costa Rica and Salvador. Senator Per
kins said to The Call correspondent to
night: ".b-b
"I believe this appointment will be very
popular in Caliiornia. Captain Merry is
universally esteemed by the people, not
only of California but of the entire Pa
cific Coast. As tbe captain of a snip he j
has acquired a nautical knowledge that
has made him an authority on the coast. ]
His residence- in Nicaragua enabled i
him to thoroughly acquaint himself |
with the Nicaraguan canal subject. ;
He is even familiar with the |
route the canal will take. He is a man of
rare intelligence. His literature on tbe
canal subject has. been widely read and
has been of great assistance to thos3 of us
in Washington who hava been working to
secure the canal. During my last inter
view with tbe President I broached the
canal subject by suggesting that the
nomination of Captain Merry would be
accepted by the people of California and
the entire country as meaning that tbe
administration favored the canal's con
struction by this Government. Although
the President did not commit himself
positively, I left with the impression that
he favored the canal."
With reference to the report that some
opposition had developed in Washington
as to Captain Merry's appointment, it ap
pears that there was no opposition from
tbe Pacific Coast, but that the "Diet" of
the five Central American States sent a
cablegram to Washington staling that
Captain Merry would be persona non
grata to them. The "Diet," it seems, is a
body of men representing the five Central
American States in diplomatic matters.
The United States Government no longer
recognizes the "Greater Repub.ie of Cen
tral America," as it was formerly called,
but of late years has divided the five
States into two croups, as follows: Nica
ragua, Costa Rica and Salvador and
Guatemala and Honduras.
When the cablegram was received from
the "Diet" President McKinley sent for
Senator Perkins and showed him a copy
ofthe message, which had been translated
at the State Department. The President
seemed to think that this was sufficient to
prevent Captain Merry's nomination, but
Senator Perkins asked him to defer his
decision for a few days, In the meantime
the Captain's friends were at worlc. A
cablegram was soon received oy President
McKinley from President Zeiaya of Nica
ragua, saying that Captain Merry's ap
pointment would please the Nicaraguan
republic and that he would be received
with open arms. Letters and telegrams
also came from San Francisco and many
other points in California and the Pacific
Coast States urging the President to ap
point Captain Merry. Senators Mcßride
of Oregon and Frye of Maine also saw the
President at Senator Perkins' request.
The nomination, as it went to the Sen
ate to-day, appoints Captain Merry to
"Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Salvador,
when, according to Senator Perkins, it
should have been Nicaragua, Honduras
and Salvador. He says that according to
the diplomatic and consular appropria
tion bill Nicaragua. Honduras and Salva
dor are in one group and Guatemala and
Costa Rica in another. He is inclined to
believe a mistake has been made at the
State Department, but is not quite sure of
it. He will investigate the mutter to-mor
row. There is no doubt of Captain Merry's
confirmation. His salary will be $10,000
a year.
KAGSJiALE is LEFT OUT.
Hi* domination May Rot J'e Made for '
. dome 'Jlme.
WASHINGTON, D. C. July 14.— Two j
of the California Congressmen were dis- {
appointed to-day when they read tbe list
of nominations by the President. Repre
sentative Loud had recommended Pro
fessor John P. Brun of Leland Stanford
University as Consul to Zurich, Switzer
land, but an Illinois man got the place.
Representative Barham hoped that bis
fellow-townsman, J. W. Ragsdale, would
to-day be aopointed Consul to Tientsin,
China, but it was not included. No other
person was named for this post, however,
and it is possible that it may go in before
Congress adjourns, notwithstanding the
report of an evening paper to the effect
that to-day was the last day for the con
sular applicants to get in their work for
some time.
They flocked to the White House in
large numbers, leaving standing room a
thing to be desired. They wanted to see
if there was not some hope that they could
get upon that batch of nominations at the
last moment. None succeeded. The list
was closed yesterday afternoon.
A number of Congressmen who tried to
have it reopened to-day were informed
that it was too late. Tbey were also given
to understand that it will be a long time
before the President acain takes up con
sular appointments, ll is semi-otticialiy
stated that, with an occassional exception,
the President will make no more consular
nominations until about September 1,
after be returns from a season of rest. He
will probably inform all candidates of
this it it is bis intention, as was indicated
to-day.

IT WILL BE CF MARBLE.
Treasury Depot ment Decides as to the
Material tor San Francisco's
Building.
WASHINGTON, D. C, July 14.— The
Treasury Department has decided to
use marble to construct the new Postoftice
building at San Francisco. The Call cor
respondent was told so at the Treasury
Department to-day. Congressman Loud
has written a letter to the department pro
testing against the use of marble. He
urges several objections ht.-t, that it will
greatly increase the cost of tbe building
beyond the limit fixed by Congress, for if
marble is used it will nave to be trans
ported from the E.s', as the California
quarries are not only remote from San
Francisco but are unavailable. He says
Sis * that marble is not suitable for the ex
terior of the public building, for expe
rience shows in damp weather it stains
and ru-ds.
The rainy season in California would
have this effect on the marble, while the
dirt and dust of the dry spell would also
discolor the marble. He suggests that
either California sandstone or granite be
used.
Mr. Loud prefers the former. He said
to The Call correspondent to-night that
he thought that a base constructed of
granite, with the upper part of the struc
ture built of pink sandstone, would make
a very pretty effect. One of the experts
in the Supervising Architect's office says
that if either granite or sandstone is used
the plans will nave to be changed, as the
ornamentation of the building can be
carved in marble only. Chief Executive
Officer Kemper disagrees with him.
Mr. Loud will have a talk with the
treasury officers before he leaves for San
Francisco about the kind of stone to be
used. . •

Loud Kill Xot Actively Oppote the Ap-
.mm Intent of Lynch.
WASHINGTON, D. C, July 14.-Rep
resentative Loud is very much better, and
will be able to go about as usual in a few
days. He says that if his improvement
continues he will co back to San Fran
cisco immediately upon tho adjournment
Of Congress; otherwise he will vi^it in
Massachusetts until September. When
Mr. Loud was seen by The Cam. corre
spondent to-nipht reierence was made to
the tact that the delegation, with the ex
ception of himself, bad indorsed J. C.
Lynch for Collector of Internal Revenue
to succeed Welburn, and A. C. Tufts as
Drug Inspector at San Francisco.
"Well, why don't they get their men
appointed?" asked Mr. Loud, signifi
cantly. "I cin't tell you that these nomi
nations win not be made to-morrow nor
the next day nor the next. When I ara
well enough to go about I am going to
visit the President."
It is understood that Mr. Loud has no
hope of defeating the nomination of
either Lynch or Tufts, but he feels that
the nominations should not be acted on
without consulting him. For this reason
be sent a friend to the White House the
other day to request that no action be
taken until be could see the President.
Mr. Loud admits that he has nothing to
urge against either Lynch or Tufts, but
be dont want any snap judgment to be
taken while he is sick. There is no doubt
about the appointment of either one of
the parties.

Will Obey When the Czar Has
Given Up His Ottoman
Possessions.
Europe's Concert Said to Have at
Last Agreed Upon a Scheme
of Coercion.
LONDON, Eno., July 14.— The Standard
has received a dispatch dated Constanti
nople, July 12, saying that the Porte has
agreed to reduce the war indemnity de
manded from £8.000,000 to- £6,000.000, at
the same time declaring that it ix the ex
treme limit of concession it will make.
The dispatch adds that the Grand Vizier
had a Ions: and stormy interview with the
Russian Embassador, in which tbe Tatter
insisted that the Turks must evacuate
Thessaly. The Grand V.zier replied that
Turkey would comply when Russia had
evacuated Kars and Batoum.
Another dispatch says ministerial coun
cils were held on Sunday and Monday,
the result of which was a long report
stigmatizing the concert of the powers as
a league of the cross against the crescent.
The Sultan answered this report with the
following irade:
"I am convinced that the efforts of the
powers are directed entirely to the m lin
tenance of peace, it is the plain dnty of
Turkey, whose sentiments are likewise
pacific, to put an end to the pre-ent ab
normal situation. Consequently 1 com
mand my Ministers to find the necessary
means tor concluding negotiations, if pos
sible, and signing preliminaries by Thurs
day." •
The correspondent, while admitting
that the irade" may be another ruse, main
tains that I* is report is accurate.
The Standard, in an editorial apparent
ly officially prompted, conveys the idea
thai trie meeting of the Cabinet to-morrow
will aim to arrive at a definite decision re
garding the coercion of Turkey. fur
ther seems to sucgest that a scheme is
afoot by which Great Britain and Russia
will apply force to the Ottoman empire,
tb* other powers consenting*.
The Athens correspondent of the Tele
graph says the power* are considering a
scheme "by which* Russia, Austria and
Great Britain will co-operate to coerce
Turkey. The correspondent says he
learns from high authority that it is pro
posed that Rus-ia Mi .11 blockade the Bos
pnorus and Great Britain the Dardanelles,
while Austria shall seize the railroad to
Salonica. France will occupy Smyrna if
necessary. .

GOLD DEMOCRATS
OF KENTUCKY
Hold : a Well-Attended
State Convention at
Louisville.
Buckner, Watterson, Carlisle,
Breckinridge and Lind
say as Delegates.
The Ex-Secretary Made Permanent
Chairman— He Assails the
"Twin Heresies."
LOUISVILLE, Kt., July 14.— The
sound-money Democrats made a good
showing at their convention here to-day.
Buckner, Watterson, Lindsay, Breckin
ridge ana Carlisle, with nearly every
other party leader of State prominence,
were among the delegates.
The representation was surprisingly
large, there being delegates from 117 of
the 119 counties. Music Hall was packed
with spectators, and there was great en
thusiasm. b.
The convention was called to order by
Secretary Carroll of the , State Central
Committee, in the absence of Chairman
Davis. > State Senator Sims of Bowling
Green was chosen temporary chairman
and delivered a long speech.
An organization wat quickly effected.
General Buckner was already on the plat
form committee for the State at large,
and the chairman added Henry Watter
son and Colonel Breckinridge.
The three names were greeted with
cheers.
Ex- Secretary Carlisle was made perma
nent chairman, and delivered his first
political address since leaving the Cabinet.
He said:
Protection and free coinage are twin here
sies. A man who believes in one is logically
bound to believe in the other.
t When the ancient Democratic faith shall
have been re-established, as it will De, if our
free institutions are to be preserved ;
when protection of individual liberty, estab
lishment of justice and equality, and
preservation of law and order Is recognized by
our p_otfT?*<_ primary objjcis of all just gov
ernment, these heresies will be heard of no
more.
The Democratic party is not responsible for
any bad legislation complained of by the peo
ple; it never enacted laws to lavor one class
and injure another; it has fostered ;•' no
monopolies ;of trad- or industries; has'
taxed no man for the benefit of another; has
violated no right of person or property by de
basing the curroncy or otherwise; nor
has it from the beginning ot its or
ganization down to the pfbsent hour ever
attempted to deprive tho people of the evil,
political aud religious rights secured by the
constitution. It has never justified or ex
cused violations of law by individuals or by
riotous combinations, nor has lt ever at
tempted to weaken the authority of the
courts by assailing their integrity or threat
ening to destroy their independence.
Why should such a party desert its own
standard, repudiate all Its past history and
j enter into a conspiracy with lv own enemies to
I break down public and private credit at home
I and abroad; to repudiate contracts already
i made; to convert the Government Into a so
cialistic despotism by giving it a monopoly ot
all the great instruments of production and
transportation, and to make life and property
insecure by the substitution of mob rule for
i the law of tbe land?
A single victory of such a coalition would be
I more disastrous to the party and the country
I than a thousand defeats in tbe struggle ior
! correct principles; and they are real friends
of Democracy who adhere resolutely to the
j old standard and refuse to support these new
' and dangerous policies.
The resolutions reported by Colonel
Breckenridge were mainly a reaffirmation
of ti.e Indianapolis platform. They score
the socialist and paternalist Chicago plat
form.
The convention adjourned after the adop
tion of rules until evening. When it reas
sembled at 8 o'clock the following candidates
forjudge of the Court of Apjcds were named:
ex-Lleuienant Governor J. R. Hindman of
Adair, John G. Orendorff of Logan County
and ('. M. Aiberti of Fayette. Be
fore the balloting was more than half
over Orendorff and Aiberti had withdrawn and
tne nomination of Hindman was made unani
mous.
The convention adjourned after Hindman's
speech of acceptance.
PACIFIC GROVE KIDNAPING.
Ycung Daughter of a Chinese Fisherman
Carried Away by Three
Mongols.
PACIFIC GROVE, Cai,., July 14.-AU
the residents of the local Chinatown are
wrought up over the kidnaping of a young
Chinese girl last night. Tbe 14-year-old
daughter of Quong Sue, a fisherman, went
to a near-by hydrant for a bucket of water
shortly af ier '8 o'cloct. She was seized 1
by three Mongol?, gagged and thrown
into a, wagon waiting near by and driven
off in the direction of Monterey. The
few who saw . tne occurrence were, they
say, too frightened to interfere, but gave
the alarm as soon as the abductors had
gotten safely away. lmsß-\
A tearch was set afoot and the father of
the girl came to Pacific Grove to notify
the officer*. He did not acquaint them
with the f. cts until this mornine. No
trace of the men and • their prize has
been found. Local Chinamen are greatly
excited, as they believe the kidnaping
was instigated by one of the rival Chinese
companies.
