JOHN BULL STIRRED UP
To a High Pitch, Kv«n to Dytog From Kx
cltcmant Oru the Election«.
London, December 4.—The excitement
caased by the cloitnM« of the election« is
tremendous. Four deaths from excite
ment caused by politic« are reported. Riots
are the order of the day. Mr. Charsley,
the defeated Tory candidate against Baron
Rothschild in the Àylesbory division of
Bocks, lie« dying at a local hotel from in
juriei received at the hands of a mob.
Twenty residences of Tories and the two
chief hotels at Radstock, Somerset, bave
been destroyed. Scores of citizens and
pohcemaa have been injured at Worthing,
where the polic« were stoned. Fifty cas
ualties are reported at Wilton. The snc
oeasfal Liberal candidate there was beaten
black and blue, and only by the aid of an
escort of sixty policemen battling their
way to the station, did he escape being

London, December 4.—The St James
Gazette complain« that the Radical dod
gers have succeeded in securing a numeri
cal victory through the vote of newly en
franchised ignoramuses. It declares that
the result is a triumph of village ignorance
over the voice of the more intelligently !
trained constituents all over England.
The sucidal folly of such an argument as
this needs no pointing oat, bat it will
doubtless please the fine old crusted Tor
ies. who are the so'e patrons of the
Gazette.
The Carlton Club has sent forth a cir 1
calar advising Tories to explain thîir de
feat as follows: "The eictories of ths Lib- i
erals it the earlier county elections dis
turbed Parnell's plans. He feared that de
spite his aid to the Tories, the Liberals
would obtiiu a msprity which would make
th-»m independent of him. Therefore he
sought to hedtfe. He sent letters to the
Liberals standing fjr the remaining coun
ty divisions, offering to swing the Irish
vote over to them if they would give
phd »es to advocate aud vote for home rale
tor Ireland. The candidates, Hashed with
tfae victories lùus tar acnievea oy iv.oerais,
declined the bait. The Irish elector« were
'eft uninstructed a« to how they should
vote, and they did not vote at all. ' Thus
the Cirlton Ciub claims Mr. Parnell
avenged kiraself cm the Tory party for the
alleged bad faith which the Tories dis
played toward him at Liverpool.
The few Parnellite leaders no* in Lon
don ajrree that the statement is another
Tory lie. and declare that it has not even
the merit of ingenuity.

OUR ALLEGED NAVY.
The Concise and Incisive Report ol
Secretary Whitney.
HE TALKS PLAINLY TO CONGRESS
i
An Interesting and Important Document
Reports of the War Department
and the Land Office.
Washington, D. C., December 4.—Th«
annual report of Secretary Whitney, of th«
J Nary Department, was issued today. 11
is a short, sharp, incisive document, merci'
lessly criticising the alleged United States
Navy and definitely pointing out to Con
gress the method to pursue in giving to the
country a navy vorthy of the name and fit
to sail in the same waters with the navie«
ot other and some lesser nations. The
Secretary reviews the work of the Depart
ment during the fiscal year ending June
30, 1895, and summarizes the reports of
its bureaus, which is familiar reading
Under the head of
CXPEKD1TURK9,
the Secretary says:
The amount of appropriations applica
ble to the current expenses of the first six
monthsof the dscal year was$7,255,283 43,
the amount for the last six months of said
year eading June 30, 1885, $5,230,253.85,
making the total amount $13,435,537 33,
in which is included $17 362 transferred
trom na\/yard Brooklyn, N". Y., 1834, to
that appropriation H35 per appropriation
warrant No. 383, $140,000 from machinery
double-turreted monitors, indefinite, to
steam engineering. 1835, per appropriation
warrant No. 390, and $.',191.87 pay mis
cellaneous 1835, appropriated to supply
defi ieacies for said fiscal year per appro
priation warrant No. 391.
l or io:«*i grusa suiuuui *>ui vu "cj
abl* for the year was $14.425,942.81, bein?
$1.504,823 '.'3 leas than ths amoin? avail
able far the fiscal year ending June 30,
1984
Toe net amount drawn from the Tr«aa
ary by wirraot during the lis: fiscal year
was $13,337,867.72, a* shown by th9 books
of the Department, which leaves a balance
undrawn of $1,088,075 01*; to this should
be added the net amount unexpended in
the hands of pay officers on the said Jane
30, 1885, ai sho»n by the office of the
Foarth Auditor $1,565,570.64, leave« an
a*gre*ate balance unixpanded of $2.333,
64ô 73. which Btood to the credit of the
Department at the beginning of the près
ent fiscal year. That is, the total ne*, ex
penditure for the fiscal year eadin* June
30, 1835, was that m ich less than the ap
propriations.
The appropriations available for the
present fiscal year, commencing July 1,
1835, are $13,590,704 95 The amount
drawn by warrant from the Treasury from
July 1, 1885, to November I. 1885, deduct
ing that refunded, is $4,285,760 39. The
amount drawn by warrantdurin* the same
period of last year waî $4,383,244 93.
ESTIMATES.
Theastimates for theNavy for the &s:al
year endin? June 30, 1887, amount to
$35,104.695 15, in which sum are embraced
estimates for new objects, not those ordi
narilyforthe service, amounting to $16
069,!»50 24, leaving for the customary pur
poses of the service $19,034.744 91. They
embrace for increase of the Navy $10,503,
770; for the completion and armament of
the double turreted monitors $4,202,656;
and for public works and improvements at
the yards and stations $4 268,3.".7.4l.
Under the head oi' additional new cruis
ers. the Secretary says:
Within the ne\t thirty days it is believ
ed that the plans will be sufficiently ad
vanced as to justify the commencement of
the advertisements for the submission of
plans by engineers and mechanics of es
tablished reputation, naval constructors,
and others, within a period, not less than
sixty days, to be named. And it is per
haps well that attention should be called
to the fact that the ships are likely to be
finished at a period long prior to the prob
able completion of their armament.
There is a growing interest in the mat
ter of Government work, and the field of
the bidders will. I think, be larger than
ever before. Several large builders of
engines and machinery have expressed a
desire to be permitted to compete for the
construction of the machinery for the new
ship*, and it may be decided to separate
the hull aud her fittings from the machine
ry in the advertisement, as is somatime
dose in other countries In that event
the field of the bidders would probably be
greatly increased.
THE DOLPHIN, BOSTON', ATLANTA AND CHI
CAGO.
I nder this heai the Secretary exten
sively reviews the contracts of the Govern
ment with Jqhn Roach and the subsequent
familiar developmeats. In criticisiog the
Dolphin he says:
The Dolphin, as she now is, should be
regarded as a pleasure boat rather than as
a dispatch boat Tae absents of the most
ordinary and approved devices for protec

her oat of the category ot war vessel*. Tbe
bm, for instance, of vertical engine», ex
posing her machiner? above the water line
in a vessel without armor/ protection, is
far from being good practice at this time.
la fact, she does not bear favorable com
parison with similar vessels built at about
the same time by other countries.
The Surprise, built by the English Gov
ernment contemporaneously with the con
struction by ns of the Dolphin, has horizontal
engines placed below the water line, wi;h
a horizontal steel protective deck and with
coal protection fn addition. She has 40
water-tight oo as partaient* as against the
Dolphin's 6. Her machinery weighed 10
per cent, leas than the Dolphin's an^pro
du .red 20 par cent, more power, and her
speed is from two to three knots better
than that of the Dolphin. The vital parts
of the Dolphin are so eipoeed that nndei
fire she wonld be quite useless; yet her de
sign is chargtable to the Government _
ORcixizirios or thb depiktmcxt.
It most he evident, says the Secretary
that there is something radically wrong
with the Department The nnivertal dit
satisfaction m the conclusive proof of tin
It is expressed to me by inmeatial men
, ben of both political parties, and qnitt
universally by tbe naval officers, coupled
with the hope a»d expectation thai emu
remedy may be fonnd and speedily ap
phed.
He suggesU and says that the natura
division of the work of tbe Department ü
into three branches :
First The Department having to d<
with the personnel and the fleet Thi
covers the enroll orent, services, detail uni
form, organization, and discipline of tb
personnel; of the movements and com
m and of fleets and vessels when commis
sioned; and this ie properly tbe militar
branch of tbe Department.
Seeon t Tbe Department of Materis
fnd Construction. This covers thecoi
structioo, repair and eare of vessels befor
commifcioned; their armament and eqaij
1 ment including military stores (bot n<
r provisions and clothing), as well as tl
'management and mainteaanceof doc!
jards, their buildings, machinery, and their
civil establishment
Third. The Department of Finance and
. Accounts, this covering contracts and pur
chases of all naval stores, Sags, coat, eta
tionery, and care of storehouses, &o.
It is in the second branch that the de
partment has lamentably failed, continues
the secretary, and ho devotes much space
to showing in a clear, concise manner that
iailure springs from an improper division
of the work oi the department.
• r THE KAVT A8 IT IS,
' he sftjs:
The country has expended since July 1,
1308 (more than three jears subsequent to j
the close of the late civil war) over seven
ty five millions of money on the conatruc
Hon, repair, equipment, and ordnance oi
vessels, which sum, with a very slight ex
ception, has been substantially thrown
away; the exception being a few ships now
in process of construction. I do not over
i lock the sloops constructed in 1874 and
costing three or four millions of dollars,
and to avoid discussion they may be ex
cepted also. The fact still remains that
: for about seventy of the seventy-five mill
ions of dollars which have beep expended
by the Department for the creation of a
navy we have practically nothing to show.
I It is questionable whether we have a
single naval vessel finished and aâoat at
; the present time that could be trusted to j
encounter the ships of any important
power—a single vessel that has either the
necessary armor for protection, speed for
escape, or weapons for defens9. This ia
' no secret; the fact has been repeatedly
commented upon in Congress by the lead
ing members of both parties, confessed by
our highest naval authorities, and depre- '
cated by all. Such is not the kind of
navy which this country, with its extensive
j coast line, its enormous territorial area, j
j and incalculable commercial resources,
require?, nor such as it is entitled to nave
This country can all'ord to have, and it 1
cannot afford to lack, a naval force at least
so formidable that its dealings with foreign
powers will not be influenced at any time, ,
nor even be suspected of being influenced,
by a consciousness of weakness on the sea.
While still striving to buili up its mer
chant marine and to multiply its relations
with foreign markets, it cannot be exp9cted
much longer to tolerate such expenditures
for a navy wmcti coma noi ior a uumom
defend even ita diminutive commerce
against any considerable power.
A naval vessel at the present moment is
a product of scienca. As men of science
throughout the world are continually stim
ulated to new discoveries and invention?,
no vessel that can he built can be consid
ered a finality in any particular.
Thaproblem of keeping pace with the
marcffof improvement in these lines of
industry is one of incalculable difficulty;
and yet unless tho Government is prepared
to avail itself prcmptlv of all the improve
I ments that are made in the construction
and equipment of its shipî itsexpiaditures
are largely useless "
Secretary Whitney concludes an inter
esting and highly importaat report with
detailed and sp?cific directions to Congress
[ how to give the country a navy worthy to
bear our flag.

1835 over thoso of 1884 was mainly for
river and harbor improvements. As there
was no appropriation for river and harbor
improvement this year, the appropriations
for the year ending June 30, 1886, show a
large reduction as compared with the ap
j propriations for the previous years.

The estimates for salaries and contin

Of the 0«nfnü 1 and Ofllc«.
I : Washisgtox, D. C , December 4 —Com
1 missioner .Sparks in his annual report ot
, the General -Land Office for the fiscal year
. ending Jane 30,1885, says:
I found that the magnificent estate of
r the nation in its public lands had been to
I t, wide extent wasted under defective and
improvident law? and through a laxity ol
s public administration astonishing in I
I ; bornées mom if not culpable in reckle«
it neas of official responsibility.
e General Sparks continues: I am satis
L- fied that thousands of claims without four
dation ia law or equity, Involving millions
of acres of public land, have been annu
ally passed to patent upén the single prop
osition that nobody bnt the Government
had any adverse interest.
The vast machinery of the land depart
ment appears to have béen devoted to the
chief result of conveying the title of the
United States to public lands upon fraudu
lent entries under strained constructions
of imperfect pablic land lavs and upon il
legal claims under public and private
grants. I shall endeavor in this report to
peint out some of the evidences which il
lustrate the truth of the« general state
ments.
From the reports of the subordinate di
visions of this office it appears that during
the fiscal year the sales, entries and selec
tions of public land under various acts of
Congress relating thereto embrace 20,113,
663 37 acres, and|of Indian lands SSI,
850.21 acres, making a total of 20,995,
513.58 acres, being a decrease, as com

$8.619,598 33, being a decrease, as com
pared with the year 1884, of $1,159,532.01,
and with 1883 of $3,086,167 33, to which
i* added $8,821.86 for certified copies of
records furnished by the General Land
Office, making tbe total receipts for the
year from all sources $8,628,420.18.

Whitney Upheld.
New York, December 4.—Mr. Samuel
J. Tiiden has pent the following letter to
Hon. John G. Carlisle
Greystoxe, Yoxkkm, N. V.. >
December 1, 188Û. j
bear Mr. Carlisle •
Aa public opinion point« to jou as the
Speaker of the Hoase cf Representatives,
I desire to submit a suggestion as to one
of the poblic objecta for which an appro
priation ought to be prompt and liberal.
Tn considering the Sute and magazement
of the public revenues the subject involves
the questions whether we shall extioguiih
the surplus by reducing the revenue or
whether we shall apply the surplus to
payment* on the public debt, or
whether we shall aeire tbe
occasion to provide tor our sea coast de
fence which have been lone neglected. I
am of the opinion that the latter is a per
manent necessi'y which ought to precede
the reduction of tha revenue and ought
also to precede an excessive rapidity in
the payment of the public debt> The prop
erty exposed to destruction in the twelve
seaports, Portland, Portsmouth, Boston.
Newport, New York, Philadelphia, B*lti.
more, Charlcatown, Savannah, New Or
leans, Galveston and San Fran
cisco, cannot be less in value than
five thousand millions of dollars.
1U luis in»j uo auvuu u >a:i muuuui ui j
property dependent for Its use on these
seaports nor does this statement afford a
true measure of the damage which might j
be caused to the property and business of
the country by a failure to protect these
seaports from hostile naval attacks. They
are the centres not only of foreign com-1
merce but of most of the internal trade
and exchange of domestic productions
To this state of things the machinery of'
transportation of the whole country has
become adapted. The interruption of the
currents of traffic by the occupation of
one or more of our principal seaports by a
foreign enemy or the destruction of them
by bombardment, or the holding over them
the menace of destruction for the purpose
of exacting contributions or ransom, would
inflict upon the property and business ofi
ihe country, an injury which can neither be
foreseen nor measured. The elaborate and
costly fortifications which were conatructed
with the greatest engineering skill are now
practically useless. They aro uot ca
pable of resisting the attacks of moieru i
artillery. A still greater defect exists in
Ol'R COAST nSKKXSEP.
The ran^e of the best modern artillery
has become so extended that our present
fortifications designed to protect the harbor
of New York, wlipre two-thirds of the im
port trade and more than one-half of ihe
export trade of the whole United State« is
earned oo, are too near to the great popu
lations of New York City, Jersey City, and
Brooklyn to be of any value us a protec
tion. To provide effective defenses would
be the work of years. It
would take much time to construct
permanent fortification. A small provis
ion of the best modern guns would take
several years. Neither of these works can
be extemporized in the presence of emerg
ent danger. A million of soldiers, with
the best equipments, on the heights sur
rounding the harbor of New York in our
present state of preparation, or rather in
our total want of preparation woold be
powerless to resist a small squadron of j
war steamers. This state of things is dis- ;
creditable to our foresight, and to our
prudence. The best guarantee agaiost j
aggression, the b<Mt assurance that
our diplomacy will be loccesafulj
and pacific, and that our rights and honor
will be respected by other nations is in
their knowledge that we are in a situation
to vindicate our reputation and intermits.
While we may afford to be dtfirient in the
means of offense, we cannot afford to be
defenseless. The notoriety ot the tact that
we have neglected the ordinary precxutioEs
of defense invites want of consideration in
our diplomacy, injustice, arrogance and in
suit at the hands of foreign nations.
THE MONROE P"X TRIXK.
It is now more thin sixty years since
we announced to the world that we should
resist any attemp's from whatever quarter
they might come, to make any new colon
izations on ativ p»rt of the American con
tinent; that while we should respect the
status quo we should protect the people of
the different nations inhabiting this con
tinent from every attempt to subject them
to the dominion of any foreign po#er
or to interfere wiih their undisturbed
exercise of the rights ol selt-government.
This announcement was formally made by
President Monroe after consultation with
Mr. Madison and Mr. Jefferson. It was
formulated ny «ioqu yuiocj n>iauii uur
Government bu tirai It adhered to the
Monroe doctrine «od even a-t late a* IpOj

AX OCCASION" MAT ARISE
for our pntting in practice the Monroe doc
trine. It is clear that there osgbt to be
some relation between our assertion olthat
doctrine aod our preparation to maintain
' it. It is not inte ded to recommend any
attempt to rival the grea» European pow
ers in the creation of a powerful navy.
The chsngee which b»v* rapidly occurred
by the diminution of the rela'ive resisting
; power of the defenaive armor of ironclads
and by the increased efficienry of modern
artillery, which on (he whole has gained in
the competition, soggest that we shonld not
'' at preeent en?er into the creavoo of ar
mored vessels.
WI WAKT COOIl «HIP I
In the questions that beset this subject
until they shall hare reached a solution
wc can content ourselves with adding bat
sparingly to our navy, bat what we do add
shoald be the very best that se en ce and
experience can indica'e This prudential
view is reinforced by the consideration that
the aanaal charge of maictaioing a war
▼ewel bear« an important proportion to the
original coat of constmction I a constructing
permanent fortification«, and in providing
an ample «apply of the best modern artil
lery the annual cost of maintenance is in
consider able. Nearly the whole expendi
ture is in the original outlay for consfcruc
tioa. If we do not make expenditure Dec
essary to provide for oar «earoeet defence«
when we have a sur pits, and have no neet
to \èrj new taxe«, we certainly will no
make tkoae expenditure« when we hare n<
longer a surplus in the Treasury.
To learf our vast Interests defenceVi
in order to reduce the cost of whisky to it

tbe surplng in th« Treasury supply ample
means to meet this great public want
1 without laying new burdens upon the people
bat the work can now be done at a mach

almost entirely of steel and iron. These
material« can now be had at an unpre
cedented low jpri:e. Â vast supply of ma
chinery and of labor called into existence
by a great vicissitude in the steel and iron
industries offers itself way to oar service.
We should hare the satisfaction of know
ing that while we are availing
ourselves of supplies, which would
ordinarly be unattainable we were
setting in motion important industries
and inving employment to labor in a period
of depression, with encouragement by the
guarantee of work, or perhaps by the Gov

Another serious steel plant accident oc
curred at Bellaire, yesterday morning, the :
victim being William Humes, who resides j
on Water street, below Fortv second, in i
this city, and Charles Figger, late of
Pomeroy, Ohio. The men were «Unding
near the eaat cupola, at the steel works,
when the melted metal clogged in the
trough that rana from the cupola into the
kettle. The trough rapidly filled up, and
then the liqnid iron ran over the side« of
the conduit and descended in a shower
upon the men standing beneath.
Ilnmrs caught the bulk of the overflow,
and is seriously, if not fatally, burued
about the head, back and arms. Figger |
was more fortunate, his wounds being con-1
fined to his lower limbs and feet, being !
very reverely hurt, however. Hume« was re
moved to his home in this city and medical j
aid summoned, while Figger was cared for
at Bellaire.
Such an accident is liable to happen at !
any time, and the only wonder is that more

terrific explosion ensued, followed in quicl
succession by explosions in tbe cellars
of Flannery aud Fanilla. The noifu
was heard squares away and created tbe
atmost excitement. Sheets of 'lames burst
