.tyecuU Teitgmm to the Reqixtcr.
Washington, March 27.—The Ri ver and
Harbor Committee held to the resolution
of Merecj until four o'clock this afternoon,
and then made public the completed bill,
though it had gone to the country, item by
item, the préviens night. There was a
good deal of growling because the figures
had prematurely been müde public, and
one member of the committee who kept
faith remarked, that if the dama provided
for leak as badly a* the members he
would propose to strike them out of the
I bill.
One alteration ww made at the last mo
ment. The appropriation of $1,600 for the
rt pair oi the Davis Island dam was »trick
en out, as such txpeuses are provided tor
in a permanent appropriation. The bill
specifically provides for the purchase or
condemnation of lock No. 7 of the Monon
gahela Navigation Company, and tue
amount appropriated for the purpo.se is
$161,733.13. The figure« were fixed upou
by the rtcommendatiou of the Board of
Survey appointed by the Secretary of War
aud compost d of Major W. K King, Amos
Stick ney and A. Mackenzie. Their report
was submitted December 12, 1886, and did
not include any estimate of the value of the
company's franchise.
The adoption by the committee of theae
figure« is practically a repudiation of the
company's claim in respect to the franchise
feature, and indicate« that it is contem
plated that the Government shall ulti
mately pay only $'i,1X10,000 for the entire
series of improvements owned by the com
pany.
The committee, while it has disposed of
the preparatory work, finds itself only at
the beginning of its tribulations. Politi
cal attacks have been m&de npon it and
< sectionalism is charged.

Society. Miss Barton spoke as follows:
The organization cf the Red Cross is the
result of an international treaty known
amoDg nations as the "Treaty of Genera,"
and has for its object t|)e amelioration of
the condition of that daÉB of persons who,
in accordance with the customs of man

boundaritw of nations, and even national
existence itself, by human warfare.
By its international code all military
hospitals under its d*g become neutral, and
can he neither attacked nor captured.
All sick and wonndrd within them remain
unmolested. Surgeons, nurses, chaplains,
attendants, and all non-combatants at a
died wearing the accredited insignia
of the Red Cross are protected
from capture. Badly wounded prison
ers lying upon a captured tield are deliv
ered up to their own army if desired. AH
supplies designed for the use of the sick or
wounded of either army, and bearing the
sign of the Red Cross, are protected and
held sacred to their use. All convoys of
wounded or prisoners in exchange are
safely protected in transit, and, if attacked
from ambush or otherwise harmed, an in
ternational treaty is broken. All persons
residing in the viciuity of a battle about to
take place shall .be notiüed by the Gener

which shall open its doors to the care of

and its inmates nurses.

Nmv York, March 27.—Mi« Helen
Taylor, who is Joha Stuart Mills' step
daughter, id not at the International Coun
cil of Women uow in session at Washing
ton.
She was extensively advertised to take
part in the proceedings, au J was "oooked to
make several speeches. Mrs. Ashton Went
worth Dilke was announced to be her com
panion and oo-lecturer.
Last week Mise Taylor sent the follow
ing cablegram to Henry George, who had
engaged her lecture, in conjunction with
Mrs. Ashton Dilke, oa the land questions
44Henry Cleorye, Stunden d 0(H( f, New York:
' Please announce in the Standard, from
me, that circumstances connected with
the Washington convention have decided
me to withdraw my acceptance of the in
vitation. Hklen Talyob."
Miss Taylor mailed a letter to Henry
George, and sent another communication
toSusau B. Anthony, in both of which she
detailed at length her re.iaons for not visit
ing America, the principal among tbeee
being ber unconquerable objection to Mrs.
Aabtou Dilke, whom she pointedly men
tioned in her letter. She even declares
that she is surprised that American ladies
leceive Mis. Dilke.
When this letter of declination was re
vived by Susan 1$. Anthony, the President
of the International Council of Womc n,
übe was much distnrbed at the alléguions
against Mrs. Aohton Dilke, and immedi
atalv held a conference with Elizabeth
Catiy Stanton. These two discussed the
letter at great length. Mrs. Dilke had al
ready be«n favorably received in this
country, and thay could not very well
turn their backs upon her. At the same
time they were anxious to staud well with
Mis* Taylor, who represent« an important
women'» suffrage element in Great Britain.
They were aläo appreh^asv;® that K?Sfy
ireorge might make'public, in the Standard,
Mise Taylor's reasons for not visiting this
country as the co-laborer of Mrs. Ashton
Dilk.
Misa Kachel Foster. Secretary of the
National Women's Suffrage Association,
was sent posthaste to New York to confer
with Henry George. She arrived here on
Weduesday and had an iuterview with
Mr. George, the result being that the land
reformer couseuted to suppress the letter
which had been received by him from Miss
Taylor, »ud make pnblic only the cable
message quoted above.
Henry George when approached on the
subject was non-committal. He ac
knowledged that he had received a cable
gram from Miss Taylor, and that Miss
Foster has paid him a visit, hut he refused
to admit that Miss Foster's visit had any
thing to do with Miss Helen Taylor's re
fusal to visit this conntry.

UNITED STATES OFFICIALS HELD IN IM
PRISONMENT
On a Slight Technicality While Pursuing Trail
Robbers Over the Border—Infamous
Treatment Received at the
Hands of Mexicans.
Tccsox, Arizona, March 27.—United
States Marshal W. K. Mead, has forwarded
to Secretary of State Bayard, the follow
ing account of the arrest of himself and
deputies by Mexican officials, while pur
t>ning Southern Pacific train robbers on
Mexican soil:
At about 9 o'clock p. in., on the '-i"id of
February, I was notified by the Superin
tendent of the I Southern Pacific Kailroad
Company at this point that a west
bound train Lad been stopped by train
robbers a few miles west of Stein's pass
near the line dividing Arizona and New
Mexico; that the United States mail agent
had been tired at three times and the ex
press roblied. I summoned a pofse and at
once proceeded with arms aud horses iu a
special car to the scene of tbo robbery, dis
tant about 150 miles from Taoson. I se
cured the services of four celebrated Pa
pago Indian trailers, which, with the
others comprising the posse, consisted of
Sberiß M. F. Shaw, Deputy Sheriff C. A
Shibell, Deputy United States Marshal W.
Smith, Mr. W. 0. Whorf aud myself. We
arrived at the sceue of the robbery soon
after daylight the following morning. The
trail was easily found, and was so freih that
we anticipated no difficulty in tollowing
aud coming up with the robbers and their
booty in a comparatively short distance.
Accoutered as we were, with simply arms
and horses, without blankets or provisions,
we started enthusiastically ou the trail.
Two days later Mr. Sbaw and Mr. Whorf
were compelled to return, and two of the
Indian trailers returned with them. We
three, with the two other trailers pushed
on. The trail which we at first supposed
would be short led over the most rugged
mountains a; d through almost impenetra
ble passe«.
INTENSE SUKKBBINO.
The robber« weie well mounted aud pre
pared lor a long trauip and as we encoun
tered considerable snow in the mountains
and were without toodor blankets onr sul
fe rings were intense. . .
Still we kepton until we fouud a cabin,
where we obtained a Huiall supply of
food, which temporarily appeased our
ravishing appetites. At last we were ap
proaching the town of Janos, having rap
idly gained upon the robbers, and discov
ering bv the trail that they were occasion
ally walking and leading their horses, we
at once abandoned the pursuit temporarily
and went to Janoe to report, that being the
tiret point where there was a custom house,
and this being the first opportunity offered
tor presenting ourselves before an otlicer or
official authority of Mexico. Knowing the
peculiar strictness of the Mexican author
ities in this matter we desired at once to
pat them in possession of al lüe
evidence which we had obtaiued,
and then request to follow up the culprits,
make the arrest and hold the prisoners lor
extradition; this being the course iuvaria
bly pursued m such cases. With this view
we reported a^Janos to Lieut Martinez,
the commanding officer, stated all the
tacts, explained fully the object ol our
mission and the reasons which brought ; *s
there, armed and equipped. We notified
hiui of our official rank, au 1 as wo were at
once identified by several acquaintance he
had no reason to doubt our official charac
ter. We offered to pay any duties in Huy
way required, or give up anybody that
might be legally demanded. Wo requested
that the pursuit of the robbers be at once
resumed * so that they might not escape,
and I offered to pay any anl all expenses
which might be incurred in the accom
plishment of this purpeise, and we offered
to go with the officers if necessary to ren
tarUKfi P^ttjWCtMVs nii^ht he required
rLACED UNDER AP.RE^Pr---«
In response to all this we were at once
placed under arrest, our arms and horses
taken from us and a guard placed over us.
We were thus held for 14 days and com
pelled to pay for our own subsistence at
exorbitant rate«. All our efforts to asccr
taiu the cause of our arrest and the charges
against us were unavailing. We were told
that we must remain iu arrest until orders
could be received from the city ol Chihua
hua, 100 miles distant. We offered bands
for onr release, but, notwithstanding these
otters and the indignation expresased
generally by the Mexican cit
izens at the outrageous treatment
imposed upou us, the* Mexican officials,
with Lieutenant Martinez at the r hear],
were utterly deaf to all appeals to mag
nanimity ot official or international cour
tesy. At the expiration ol fourteen days
we were discharged, as we understood, by |
jrders from the Governor, and then for the
Srst time wc were informed that our arrest 1
was caused on account of our being au
irroed posse. We asked tor our bore«* and i
irrns, and the request was denied.
MEAN MEXICANS.
I then requested the authorities to give
ne a receipt for the property, as I had to
account for it, and I desired a statement to
,he effect that we had been held as prison
srs for tonrteen days, accompanied by a
itatemtnt ot character, to l»e nsed by me
n explanation of my official conduct.
lieutenant Martiuez then informed me if
[ would sign n statement which he had
wepared that he would give me the receipt p
or the property taken. As the statement
»hieb he asked me to sign set forth as a
act that we had l»een kindly and conrte
>nsly treated while under arrest, and as e
nch statement was void of even a seur
ilauce of truth, I refused to sign it. Lieù
«nant Martinez then refused to give me
he desired receipt. Subsequently he
ittempted to bribe me to sign his htate
uent by various promises, but 1 refused
o become a party to any such transaction.
?e were then released without horses,
transportation or arms, and were coin
elled to make our way back as best we
ould. C

Kx-Congrenimau Converse Scored—The

Columbus, V)HIO, March 27.—From the
sentiments expressed by representatives of
the Democratic clubs of Ohio here last
week it is very evident that the working
Democracy of the State stand* firmly by
the President in his position on tariff re
form. Ex-Congressman George L. Con
verse wait one of thon« who addressed the
members of the league. As in well known,
he is a Randall Democrat. He was in Con
gress when Morrison'* first "horizontal"
reduction bill was before the House, and
was the author of the motion to strike out
the enactiug danse, which killed it. Tie
killed himself at the same time politically
with the Democrats ot this Congressional
district, and r-incc then has been living
iu private life. Iu his speech be
fore the leagne this week he nrged
that the coming national campaign
should be fought by the Democrats upon
the record of the party in the work of offi
cial reform, and intimated that lie doubted
Uje success ot a campaign on the tariff re
form" iSä®."~ f&,>mas K^ l'ow^^ho vy^
the Democratic candidate toPO, }"^)r^ast
fall, took him to task, declared that the
proper, manly and true conrse for the party
was to stand f-qnarely by the President in
his rmswge, and invite a campaign from
the Kepnblicaus on that issue. Converse
was nettled by this speech, and more by
the applause which followed, lid saw it
was not a good place to argue that side of
the question, and so he merely asked if
Powell was in favor of the platform of
1884.
"I am," was the reply.
"Then there is no call for yon to raiae a
wind-mill abont it; we are one," said
Converse, and took bis seat.

the Bnkemen Will 60 dal
General Strike Notes.
Chicago, March 27.—There was bnl
little change apparent in tbe^' Q'' strik»
to-day beyond the arrivai of a unmber 01
switchmen from the East to take the placet
of the strikers. A gang ot twenty of then
new arrivals was pnt to work late this
afternoon in the yards at Western avenue.
They said they were from Reading, Pa.,
and were a portion of sixty mere that ar
rived last night, and were diatribated be
tween Chicago and Aurora to-day. The
company bad six switch engines at work
to-day, and the yard master aaid there wer«
forty switchmen at work in the yanls.
The company is endeavoring to handle
such freight as reqnires immediate atten
tion, and ta still receiving freight for all
pointa in Illinois not reached by other
rA.nl «4
I.L'MliKKMK.V IN A BAD WAV.
The lumber «lktrict is in a had cofldi
tiou, and as tliis is the busy Reason of the
year (be lumbermen will lose a large
amount r-f trade. A meeting of the lumber
men waa held this afternoon to disease the
situation and propose some plan for the
raisiDg of the embargo on their business,
bnt after some informal talk the meeting
adjourned without action. No trouble has
been experienced from the strikers to day,
aud it is thought none will be. The rail
road officials, however, are biking every
precaution to protect the new men by hav
ing the yards, tracks and crossings con
stantly patrolled by l'inkerton men and
policemen. * ,
Several of the morning papers stated that
trouble was anticipated with striking
switchmen to-day, consequently small
crowds gathered at various switching posts
in expectation of witnessing a conflict be
tween the strikers and the uew men, but
they were disappointed, as uothing out of
the ordinary incidents ot everyday work
occurred.
FUOIUM.K KRAKKMKN'S 8TBIKK.
An evening paper says: "The probability
of the brakemeu goiug out increased, and
though both the company and the strikers
and the brakemen themselves deny any
knowledge of such a move, it is quite evi
dent to a close observer that another strike
is in the air and may materialize at any
moment"
'"From information received by an en
gineer prominent in the councils of the
Brotherhood, the Brakemen's Grievance
Committee will, without delay, present a
list ot grievances to the Burlington officials.
If thifl list is not met with by the Bur
lington with promises that the demands
shall be granted, it is considered most
likely that the brakemen will strike. (Joe
of the brakemen when questioned about
the matter said : "The company lias ad
vertised in some of ttie papers for brake
men; that's all I know about it."
The Chicago, Burlington and (^nincy,
after having sometime ago announced that
an advance in freight rates to all points on
the system, beginning April 1st,
postponed to-day indefinitely the
restoration. The ostensible reason is
that the company has so far, owing to the
switchmen's strike, found it impossible to
move freight in any quantity, and there
fore its patrons have not bad the advnnt
ii»ie that the cnt rates have given compet
itors ou other roads.
The Chicago, Burlington and Qainc.y
switchmen make a statement in which
they affirm that the conipauy officers were
fully aware of their dissatisfaction in
regard to the incompetent men employed
to run the switch engines. They claim
that they could not work with them with
atiy degree of satisfaction.

the BorlinKU>n and

quit work this morning. Of this number'
neveu claimed to have quit to attend
as delegates a meeting of the striking
iiremen; two gave sickness as their excuse,
while three admitted that they were on a
strike. The company employe ahout fifty
switchmen in this city and as they have
already employed some new men that
business is not seriously interrupted.
The night crews begin work to-night r.s
usual, hat there is a feeling of uneasineas
among the Burlington and Missouri
officials, and they are evidently expecting
general strike momentarily.

Paris. March 27.—General Boulanger
has been retired. On Ute proposal of the
Ministor of War, President Carnot, actinic
on the unanimous advice of the officers
who conducted the court martial, to-day
signed a decree placing General Boalanger
on tho retired list of the army. The pro
posal had previously been considered by
the council of Ministsrs.
BOULAXUKR'* CARKItt.
General Boulanger is a born Parisian,
having first Men lbs light of day in tho
capital in Masch, 1837. At fifteen years
of age be entered a military academy in
his native city and began tbe study of tbe
science of arms. He graduated seien
years later and at once joined the regular
«riiiy as lieutenant. Soon afterwards be
was ordered to Italy, snd difttiufumhed
himself in never*! engsgemenU that took
place iu that country.
Lieutenant Boulsnger's bravery gained
honorable mention from his corps com
mander, and be received the gold medal of
honor for gallantry in tbe Held. He after
wsrds followed tbe army into Africt, sad
while in that country itave many evident-Mi
ol the possession ol soldiery qualiti«* of the
right slump.
When tbe ill-fated Maximillian went to
Mexico, «is//led by expectations of louud
ingan empira, Boulanger was an officer in
tbe French army sent to aid him. When
Msximilliaj, beaten and humiliated, ps-id
the penalty of his rashness, Bonlsngrr
returned to Prance, and for some time
lived in Paris, taking a prominent
jKirt in military aud social matters.
In 1H70, when the Franco-Prussisn war
broke out, he offered bii service« to tl.«>
War Department and was mads a captain
of infantry. Throngboat this struggle he
carried himself with groat dash and gal
lantry, and when Nspoleon III. surren
dered at Sedan Boulanger ranke«! as col
onel, having been promoted successively to
that position.
I'M DER THE REITBUC.
Wb*n Napoleon died and the govern
ment of •'Franc** waa made Iteimblicau,
Boulanger allied himself with the Radical*.
Through the friendship of M. Clemenceau,
to whom he is related, he wa» made a divi
sion commauder in the army in 1K77. He
was a*i«ned to the War Office in 1*7*, «h
Chief of tbe Department of Infantry, and
while holding this position was sent to I be
United Htates as one of the French repre
sentatives at the centennial célébration of
the battle of Yorktown.
i Shortly after tioulanger's return to
France be was promoted from General of
Division to Cbier Commander of the troop«
in Tonis. While there he was arrogant and
dictatorial and quarrelled with Monsieur
Camboy, Co um ni General. The malU-r wits
referred to the home government and llou
langer waa recalled. Before leaving for
home he issued a proclamation to his troops
in which be aet forth hia troable with ihr
Conan 1 General. Monsieur Clemenceau'*
friendship again served bim, for in six
months after bis return from Toni« be was
made Miniater of War in the De Freycinet
Cabinet.
At the beginning of his career aa Minis
ter of War he showed a great disposition
to degrade several prominent and old gen
eral!«. Among them wer^Hchmita, whom
he dispossessed of his command at Touts;
Sonssier, Governor of l'ar is, and De Courcy,
tbe former commander of the Ton<(uin.
The height of his popularity was reached
when he formed the plans for r*org*nl»:tnj»
the French army, which have b«en in the
main carried out by bis successors in the
War Office.
