Jfow Orleans, La., Starch 11. Tlio stormy
Scenes along tho river front of New Or
leans havu been succeeded by a calm mid
tomothlng approaching the normal condi
tion of affairs restored. Work was re
Mimed on the wharves to-day at least par
tially, but It was only the colored screw
jnon who took up their tools and then only
under the protection of an armed guard.
Wheie theie were no troops, there was no
vork. The white screwmon held aloof,
preserved a sullen, threatening Ellonce, hut
none made a move which would caii3o the
militia to use force to suppress It. Though
still strained, the situation 13 much Im
proved to-night. Governor Foster Is sllll
In the city and has announced his determi
nation to remain here until the trouble Is
ilnally fettled. Negotiations are In prog
ress which may produce thlJ hnppy result,
lint their outcome cannot bu predicted at
preseit. Meanwhile, the state authorities
ure taking no chances. The troops, who
have been on duty all dny, are sleeping off
their fatigue and are under orders to le
lioi t for duty to-morrow morning, when
work on the shipping will be resumed.
lly fi o'clock this morning all were astir
In tho armories where troops have been
quartered for tho last few days. Marching
orders were received from headquarters at
11 a. in., and tho nillttta, divided Into thiee
sections, were marched to Hie levee, and
took up positions at the Harrison line
wharf, at Thlid street and Sixth street.
The entire force numbered something over
C'-O men, commanded by Brigadier General

General John Glynn, Jr. The men were In

statement of yesterday that, no matter
what happened, he would protect the lives

"This step was decided upon Inst night

of the situation had been thoroughly con

tribes, and accordingly they were wired
to come- nt once, They are expected to Ret

to start for some iln.
Tlil action on the part of the secretary
is due to a recommendation from the In

nip lit at Darlington, has been here some
days Inslslfng upon this plan ot settling
some matters connected with the Indians,
lie placed tho euio before the Indian of.

delayed acllon for some days. It Is pro
posed by Captnln Woodson that tho In

fundi In the erection of homes and pink
ing Improvements on their allotments. The
t'lieyeimcs nod Arnpahocs bavin taken

leit ho rar they have not taken kindly to
'he matter of making Improvements. They
love about over the old-tlmc reservation
nnd thus Interfere with tho quiet and
peace of the settlers. Hut It Is tho hope
of the department to do something tb.it
will Induce them to make Improvements,
and If they do not do this It Is proposed
lo allow them to lease their allotments so
the Improvements can be luiide by some
one else. It Is suggested bv Captain Wond
sin that the lmlltinii be nllowed lo draw
out of the treasury about a halt million
dollars for Improvements, erecting suita
ble houses, eti ., to enable thorn to live hi
n tnnri, comfortnlilo way. It Is omo pro
poned by hlm that tint department lease
the allotments for a term of years so that
the land can bo placed under cultivation
nnd made more profitable to the Indians.
The Indians have to their credit about
$1,iki,i''i. and It Is proposed to toko about
half of It for the Improvements to be ex
pended under the direction ot the agent
or other authorized person. Just hero
rom.-i tlio trouble, for It Is claimed Hint
certain parties nro trying to gel control
of the fund to deposit It In bank nnd to
hold It until It Is slowly expended, and
thus get the uo ot tho fund. Then again
It Is claimed that another coterie has an
eyo on eroding houses nt high prices and
stand In with some ono In that matler.
In tho meantime the settlers In the coun
ties In which tho nllotted lands are locat

leased so that the personal property uc

of the counties.

A MOUNTAIN OF GOLD.
Wonderful l'hid Reported from Western

Vancouver, II. C, March II. T!y mall,

tonishing story from the distant gold fields
ot Western Australia, hardly credible, If
It had not been horno out by tho arrest of
several of the ringleaders In the most
terrible tragedy that has yet been enacted
In the lawless Cnolgardlo region.
Fabulous finds have lately been reported
from Ninety Mlln 1'olnt. nuggets weighing;
between fifty nnd ISO ounces of pure gold
being picked up on the surt'uco ot tho
ground. These stories made men mad
with lust for gain, and prospectors In the
inco for wealth pushed on for hundreds of
miles Into tho wilderness, far bevond
whero white men had over been. They
had scarcely enough food and water to
keep them alive. They were brought hack

syndicate, and with heavy packs of pro

penetrato tho Interior. They started De
cember 1 of last year, ami nothing being
heard of them since. It was supposed that
they had met death. Dan Robertson, ono
of the syndicate, returned fiom his camp,
lLiI mil' s from Coolgardle, January 20, and
confessed to the police that, after discov
ering a mountain of gold, tlio party re
turning to camp found that a band of
blacks had stolen nil their provisions. The
syndlcato pursued the blacks to their vil

THE RECORDS TAMPERED WITH.
Strange Thing llrought Out In Coin lion
With tho Appointments of Mrs. l.euho
anil .11 r. Itrcidelithal,
Topeka, Kns March II. (Special.) Homo
curious tilings are coming to light as tho
result of Imostlgatlons set on foot against
certain I'opiillst olllcoholders. Mrs. Lease,
who Intends to go Into court and fight the
appointment of a successor on the ground
th.it her term will not expire for a, year,
seems In a fair way to establish her claim.
Tho governor's message to tlio senate and
the records of that body show that silo
was annotated and confirmed to the three
year term and that Senator Householder
was appointed to tho two year term. Hut
to-day It Wan discovered that the records
In the governor's olllce which, of course,
Governor Morrill Is solely guided by, had
been tampered with. As originally written
Mrs. Lease appears to have been appointed
for the three year term, but a bungling
erasure hail been made, ami the short term
record written over It.
Tho same erasures wcro discovered In the
cose of John W. llreldenthal, stale bank
commissioner. As originally written he
was appointed for the two years remaining
of Mr. Johnson's term, but the wrltteii
over records bhow that ho was appointed
for a full four years' term. llowoer, tho
law savs that the term of bank commis
sioner shall be for four years without fixing
any date for Its commencement, and It Is
the determination of Mr. llreldenthal to
light to hold his place for two jears longer.
Governor Morrill has not Indicated when
ho will appoint a bank commissioner or
who, und It Is not likely ho will take any
action In the matter until ho can be con
vinced that he has the legal right to chop
off Mr. Hreldenthnl's head.

Topeka, Kas., March II. (Special.) Ono of
the principal topics of discussion about tho
state house to-day Is whether or not Gov
ernor Morrill will call thu special session
of the legislature for next winter. There
Is wldo difference of opinion as to the law
In tho ease, but It Is generally ngr d that
the governor will not call the session unless
he finally determines that the constitution
makes It mandatory upon hlm. The con
stitution provides that the state shall bo
redlstrlcted for legislative purposes "In ISO;
und every five years thereafter." Ono of
theso five year periods falls In tho year
ISM. When tho change was made In 1STS
from annual to biennial sessions this In
consistency was overlooked and, stated In
plain terms, Kansas Is working under a
constitution which says that tho sessions
of the legislature shall be held every two
years, but that an apportionment shnll bo
made upon tho odd year In which no pro
vision Is made for a sesslvn. Tho ques
tions which now agitate, tlio lawyers are
theso: Is the governor compelled to call
this special fosslon whether or no? Sup
posing he declined, would anything suffer
beyond the ' failure to apportion?
Where Is the law which says the governor
must call such a special sesslon7 It Is al
together likely that Governor Morrill will

three weeks ago, but he was called back
by the emperor on receipt of United
Slates .Minister Dcnby's letter of Japanese
terms of peace, as transmitted to Minister
Dun In Japan. The terms were fully
agreed upon, and Prince LI started to ex
ecute the treaty of peace, lie went to
U'leii Tsln, whenco lie was to sail for
Japan. There had been constant press re
ports from Tien Tsln prior to that time,
but since then there has been nothing as
to Li's arrival at Tien Tsln or Ills de
parture for Japan or his purposes. A
Shanghnl dispatch two weeks ago stated
that John W. Foster had started lor Tien
Tsln to Join LI. This Is the last olllclal or
unofilctal reference to the subject. Owing
to the ticniendous responsibility Imposed
on Pi luce LI. there Is naturally great In

that the mission Is of such a humiliating
character that telegraphic communication
from Tien Tsln, which Is under the con

checked as to tho circumstances of IiIh
mission. Owing to the absence of all ln
formalion of his whereabouts It Is even
possible that LI has already sailed for

Victoria, It. C, Mnreli ll.Parlleulnri are
received by tho Australian mall ot a terri
ble hurricane which swept over the FIJI
Islands n few week ago, nnd the first ef
fects of which were still a topic of Inter
estlns discussion when Iho Jllrrona touch
ed at Siiavn. It was In this slorni that sev
eral larRp vessels earns to grief with la
mentable loss of life and building In
Siiavn, the capital of FIJI, Buffered t-ry
The town Is comparatively In debris, hav
ing been the center of Iho hurricane.
Most ot the damage appears to have been
done about 3 o'clock in the morning of
February 7, when the force ot the wind
was terrific. The hurricane won accom
panied by a fearful driving r.iin, penetrat
ing everyllilnir. The storm continued until
ft o'clock Monday afternoon and then grad
ually calmed down.
Mining the lull some ventured out to see
the extent of the dnmnire done. The town
was stripped of foliage and on every hand
were houses with verandas blown down,
roofs half off, bmo walls standing or dnm
age of some other form epparent. The
most serious reports of ilamnne ionic from
plantations In thu group, which have suf
ltrcd ti nibly. The cocoanut plantations
have been totally mined. The past year
had been such n thoroughly successful one
that business people were looking forward
to a few years ot prosptiily, cocoanut
plantations having only recently recovered
fiom past blows.
This Is icjiorted to be the mo.it serious
hurricane the gioup has, had for years.
The Island of Taveunl, on which most ot
the Huropcan planters are settled, has been
swept fnnu top to bottom.
The I'nlon Steniushlp Company's vessel
Osati had a mlraeulou.i escape. She was
shipping sugar at Vuna Point, where there
Is absolutely no shelter. When the hurri
cane had blown over she had drifted miles
and got ntnong the most diingeious patch
of reefs In the group, known as the llln
gold reefs where the smallest stenmer
would not go In tho broad, st daylight.
The food supply of the p'nple Is now al
most entirely destroyed nnd the effects
which must surely follow such a storm
are famine, disease and too often death.
The government of FIJI, fully aware of the
danger, has voted money to meet the more
Immediate necessities of the case, but
this will certainly not prove Milllclent. lly

Though It then blew a gaJe of hurricane

MARTIN WAITING FOR GROVER.
The cx-Senalor Prom Kansas Has Many
'Jhings to Tulle ..hunt lo the
Washington, March II. (Spec! il.) IIx
Senator Man In is waiting to see (he presi
dent, lie says that he does not " xpi ct an
appointment or anything of the kind." He
had hoped at one time for a place on tho
court ot claims, hut having Investigated
the matter, he Is of the Impression that
while a vacancy might bo made by retire
ment. It Is nut likely to come nbout for
fome years. It had been supposed that one
of the Judges would retire as sopn uJ his
term of service was completed, but he
has Inilleund that he will fer-o a few
years more, so as to quit work on full
pay. Some of the Democrats looking after
the place say the rt.uon there Is no va
cancy Is becau'-e it I- a Republican whose
term of service Is about to end and he does
not want a Democrat to slip Into his place.
Therefore Mr. Martin has concluded that
tho chances of an appointment being made
In th.it cuurt are i . rv slim, Mr, Martin
says h" wants lo talk to the prenlduit
about "seventeen things." In this long list
It may be possible that he will touch on
the matter of the president finding out
some place In vvhh li to put him. There 1 a
rumor to the eifect that the ex-senator
would like an appointment ns cleric of one
of tin- courts In the Indian country. Mr.
Martin being asked about this matter snld
he was after money, nnd he would like the
Income arising from iho clerkship very
much, but he did not believe that he would
make an effort In that direction. He went
to Kansas, however, venrs ago as clerk of
n territorial court, .Mr. Martin says he
will leave for home about tho llrst of next
week and soon after will start for Ari
zona to look after i-onie business In con
lection with the Hudson Reservoir Com
pany. That company has asked hlm to
become its central attorney and If tho
showing Is encouraging ho will accept the
place, which will take him out of Kuiimis
for a time, but he Fays It will only bo tem
porarily, as lie Intend- to return to Improve
the opportunity of getting something out of
politics In two years, In tho lnnguago of

Cliletifso, March II. A special to tlio
Journal from Washington sttya:
This tiring on American ships bound
to nnd from South Atlaiitlo ports must
cense. The Alllanea Incident must no!
bo repented. It mutters not whether Cap
tain Crossmnii wan within or without
11 league's dlstnlico from nhnro. lie
wan In the regular routo of Vessels pass
ing between tha United States nml
Southern ports. :t Is tho recognized
thoroughfare ana must bo respected by
Spalu ns such, co far ns ships Hying the
stars nnd stripes nro concerned.
A messago embracing the sense of tho
above, by tho direction of Secretary
Greshnm, was to-day cabled to Minister
Taylor tit Mndrld. JJu Wnn Instructed to
call ut onco on the minister of foreign
nffalrs nnd nay that tho routo traversed
by tho Alllnnca In tho ono followed by
the American merchant marine, nnd thnt
this government believes that American
ships traversing thnt sea path aliould
bo permitted to go unchallenged.
Ho is further Instructed to say thnt
this government expects thnt ships (ly
ing our Hag will henceforth traverso
that routo unmolested, and that whilo
the Alllnnca. Incident Is reserved for fu
ture and separate adjustment, n. repeti
tion of such Interference with American
commerci) will bo regarded as tin un
friendly act toward the United States.
This notion, while prompted, of course,
by the Alllanea Incident, la taken with
out consideration ns to whether Captain
Crossman was in tho right or wrong.
Spain has for many years boon a bit too
free In her dealings with tho American
ling nnd people, and Secretary Grcs
hi.m Is determined that henceforth alio
must trent America and tho stars nnd
stripes with the very nicest considera
tion. With regard to tho statement that the
Spanish man-of-war was justified In
firing on the Alllnnca If sho were within
a innrlno league ot Spanish territory,
and especially If passing between adja
cent Spanish Islands, -which statement is
based on this country's position regard
ing sealing In Ilehrlng sea, the state de
partment holds that It Is not well taken.
"Hy way of Illustration," said ono of
the department secretaries H1I3 nttor
nuon, "we nro permitted to send our
ships through tho Suer. , canal, but (this
deliberately) they nro not permitted to
fish in It."

TABLES TURNED0N MR. CHASE
If tho Warden's Injunction Is Sustiiliied, as
Is Likely, Ho Can Hu Removed
Topeka, Kas., March 1 (.-(Special.) The
Republicans have the horse laugh on War
den Chase, of the state penitentiary, who
recently brought an Injunction against the
governor, the lieutenant governor and the
speaker of the house, to prevent them from
appointing a legislative commit toe to In
vestigate charges inndo against him as a
public ollleer. He went Into court Willi
the plea that, ns the title of the net which
gave such power to the governor and his
ussticiatts did not clearly define the con
teats of the act, it was therefore uncon
stitutional. The court has Its dtclslon un
der advisement, but It Is generally believed
that he will hold thnt Warden Chase's po
sition Is well taken, and that the act Is un
constitutional. If the court does so hold, the decision
will necessarily leave the position of War
den Chase entirely under control of the
governor, as are other state department
ollleer, and he can cut off Warden Chase's
head 111 un Instant without the formality of
an Investigation. This is th- view of the
enso h.-ld by Attorn, y General Dawes. If
Iho court liuliU as Indicated above. Warden
Chase will have himself and his own at
turmys to thank for his loss of olllce.
