Arkansas City, Knn., April 25. A meet ing of Oklahoma boomers, disappointed of securiug claims in tho territory, was held in the opera house hero Tuesday evoning. There was a largo and enthusiastic attend ance. Speeches were mado denouncing the manner In which Oklahoma was sottlod. An Iliilstlco to tho ItoomcrH. It wns freely declared that largo bodies of men served as United States marshals in order to get into tho country and select tho best claims, and that this was nu injustice to law-abiding settlers. They came here to securo homes, and as they could not get them in Oklahoma they woro going to have them in tho Cherokee strip. Will Go to tho Choroke Strip. About MX) mon in this town Tuesday night pledged themselves to go to tho Cherokee strip and take claims, let the consequences be what they may. The beauty and fertility of this strip, so useless to tho Indians and of profit only to the Texas cattle kings, have been remarked upon heretofore by your cor respondent. There Boems nothing unreason able in opening it at once, and to do so will avoid great trouble that now seems in evitable. Something )Imt Be Done. There is a pressure of tho surplus people driven back hero from Oklahoma, and await ing in tho territory -the first chance to got out, that must bo relieved. The battled set tlers are earnest and undismayed. They will execute their purpose. ( The troops in this region, fortunately, are in command of Cnpt Jack Hayes, an old frontiersman, and a cool and discreet officer. Tliero is, nevertheless, going to be great turmoil on the Cherokee strip unless the gov ernment at Washington interferes. The railroud 6eems to bo completely pros trated and does not dclivor tho baggage of the suffering throngs. Kingfisher. Advices from Kingfisher say: Kingfisher is a grown town already, excopt that titlos are somewhat iu dlsputo, and no town offi cers are yet ""Voted. Chicago avenue is half a mile long, x'he offices of tho Rock Island railroad, the cannon ball stage line and other corporations aro in ono buildi.ig, which is a canvas; tent 10 feet by 13 feet. Not the slightest troubte of any kind has occurred, though in many instances tliero are several claimants to oue town lot. Homesteads are occupied in all directions. Sickness and Sunstroke. Pneumonia and sunstroko aro beginning to claim their victims, but the sick have neither refugo nor sympathy. Tho wholo scene in its countless, varied and painful details is simply indescribable. Hero stands a big city out of doors and without supplies. Only ono train left over the crippled road. and it was crowded beyond additional space for a mouse on the floor or a sparrow on tho roof. Those who could not get on cheered defiantly us the train pulled out and another just as crowded pulled in from tho north. Had to Move the PoKtofllCD. One of the incidents of Tuesday was the compulsory removal of the postoflice. The government representatives had failed to II lu a claim to the lot on which the pcstolllco stood. Some enterprising boomer put in his claim and took possession of tho lot, the postmaster securing another. Y. 51. C. A.

MacDonald is with tho United States troops on his way to tho border, where thu Indian uprising is reported on account of the boomers who can't got claims biiuuttlng on their lands. The trouble is just begin ning. Fired on by Tenuis. Fort Reno, O.

Between tho storm on tho north, and the firo on tho south, tho second day closed unhap pily in boomerland. Killed by a Cowboy, Oklahoma City, April 25.

They will, carry mail from Guthrie to Lisbon daily each way at rate of $2,000 per year; no time specified. I will make temporary arrangoments at that price. Wo have a largo amount of Lisbon mail hero now. Answer if I shall start mail across as boon as Lisbon office is open." Honest Settlers to lie Protected, Washington, April 25. Secretary Noble was asked if settlors in Oklahoma who had gono into the territory and located claims beforo noon on tho 22d would be allowed to retain them. ''All I can say," he said, "is that tho ad ministration does not propose that people who have faithfully observed tho letter and spirit of tho law shall suffer in consequence of their action." YELLOW JACK AGAIN, Ono Case Reported at Sanford, Flo. Rag ing In Hrnxll Nearly Two Hundred Deaths In Four Day. Washington, April 25.

A report was current hero Tuesday night that San ford, 150 miles south of here, had a sudden death, supposedly from yellow fever. All sorts of rumors are current here, but nothing definite can bo learned, save that of ouo death, and that tho house aud other inmates aro strictly isolated, and that all precautions havo been taken to provent tho diseaso from spreading. Dr. Daniels, president of tho state board of health, is on the ground investigating.

Tho doctors of Rio havo become so much alarmed at the prospective loss of commerce of the country that they now call tho diseaso accesso pernissioso, hoping that tho now name will allay tho fears of the proposed tourists. At tho timo of tho last report from Rio there had been 180 deaths from yellow fever in four days. RACE QUESTIONS. Itemurkuble Letter from Dlshop Newman to Men of" the South. Charleston, S, C, April 25. Bishop John P. Newman, of Omaha, has written an open letter on the southern question which is attracting widespread attention hero. The letter is addressed to the editor of Tho News and Courier. Referring to his speech at tho Virginia conference ho says: "You have the race question to sottlo as to tho whites and tho blacks; we hnve the raco question to sottlo as to the American born and tiio foreign born. Witli you it is a question with your own people; with us it is the north against all Europe. You have the easier task. Tho south has not been overrun by foreigners indifferent to our institutions. This is what I meant by the "purest American blood was to be fouud in tho south,' and that becauso of this 'it might bo that the south would have to march forth in defense of our dearest in stitutions.' I have been saying this in tho north for the past twenty years on many public occasions. In nil my tour of the south I spoke words of peuce ami unity, and since my rotuni north I have spoken liko .words to President Harrison and to our statesmen. It was a joy to me that I found the young men in Florida, in the Carolinas, in Georgia, in Virginia, loyal to the Union of the fathers. I suggested to the administration to put men in office in the south of high repute, who will promote southern prosperity, intelligence and re ligion." Force is added to tho lust statement by a rumor which readies hero from Washing ton to the effect that President Harrison will deal with tho South Carolina officers the first week in May. F. W. Mucusher, a northern man, who settled hero after the war but who bus always voted with tho whites in state elections, says ho saw the president, and that the re movals and nppiiiitmouts will begin on May 1. The president, ho says, intends to ignore the old pirty leudeis, und appoint young Democrats und Republicans to offlco in tho state. There is n considerable elo-' ment in tho D uioerutiu party in this stuto who ure dissatisfied with tho methods of tho party, and tho piWdout will miiko his selec tions from tins element. Tho rumor is gen erally credited here. . i'lui Iliooklyn In l'ort. Washington, April 25.

Laitlley & Company's I'liRtinff " "- D House, Cincinnati, Burned. LOSS ON milLUING AND CONTENTS ESTIMATED AT 8173,000. Being Situated Some Three Billon from the Alain Part of the City, the Flames Got a Good Start Enough Meit De stroyed to Supply the City for Week. Thousands of Spectators Present. Cincinnati, April 25. Tuesday night tho biggest firo, since the burning of the Krip pendorf shoe factory, occurred. The burn ing establishment was tho pork packing and smoke-houses of F. A. Laidloy & Company, situated in tho square boutl'.ed by Alabama, Johnson and Ledllo streets and the Cincin nati, Washington and Baltimore and Bee Ldno railroads. Tho main building was the largest packing nouse in the city, 250 by 176 feet, of brick, threo stories in hoight. with two sub-cellars. and had a packing and storage capacity of half n million hogs. Tho two burned smoke houses wero threo stories, brick, and nbout 40 by 40. Tho nbatoir, , a three-story brick about 50 by 100, lying north of tho packing houso and east of the smoke bouse, was tho oniy Duuuing saved. The firo was first soen nt A-OS n m. Tuos day, by Officers McGovern and Hill, who sounded an alarm, quickly followed by a second and third. The blaze, which started in the northwest corner of the packing house had spread with the greoso soaked timbers and inflammable meats as fuel into a great, seething, spluttering, howling furnace of flamo long before tho arrival of the engines from the cltv. Wntnr tmm ii engines on such a firo was powerless. It Mmpiy ournea. At 10 p. m. whon the fire had conquered every port of the vast hulldinrr. nnd ii,i from overy window, and the crater whero mu root naa Deon, the sight was a grand spectacle to tho thousands. Tho triple alarm and long sustained glare had brought multi tudes to the scone, who looked in uwo upon the destruction, in which tlmv nvm fnv,-,i by the location of tho buildings. The police i-uuirunou mo crowds perrectly. The, only mistake in fighting tho fire was in allowing the smoke-houses to catch, which might have been provonted. They contained 500,000 pounds of hams. The packing house contained nbout 1,000,000 pounds of meats. Falling walls were a frequent occurrence, and each concussion shook the earth. For tunately no firemen wero hurt, savo ono. He was Charles Mooro, who was struck by a part of the west wall, but, though badly hurt, kept his post. Tho buildings wero built twelve years ago by Truman B. Handy, Briggs Swift and others at a cost of $150,000. Thdy are now ow.ied by the Perin estate and rentod to the Liidioy company. The total loss on build ings and contonts will bo about Sn.l.OOO. The insurance on the building is $;oo0. The insurunco on tho stock was estimated by Mr. Lnidlernt between A".;) inn n.,,i miwi Tho origin of the firo is unknown. It is surnuseu to oe sparks from a locomotive, although its first location was near tho boiler room. Tho two sub-cellars, filled with burning greuse, burned all day. THE SEAL FISHERIES. This Yonr'n Catch Said to Do the LurgeNt Ever Recorded. St. Johns, N. F., April 25 More than $1,000,000 worth of soals have been captured by the seal hunters from this port within the past six weeks. The catch has been un precedented, and has led to the fitting out of many other vessels for that industry. Tho steamer Wolf was the first to return with a full cargo. She left port on March 9, and struck the seals on the 11th, midway between Quirpon and Groas island. On tho 12th her crew killed 10,000 seals, and on the 13th to the 18th they took 18,000 moro on board and then started for home, arriving horeon the 20th. The total weight of her seals was 451 tons gross. Seals aro worth $2.50 each. The value of tho Wolfs cargo is $70,000. Since tho Wolf's arrival tho Ranger has come in with the finest careo of tho season. . She had on board 38,000 seals, valued ut over $100,000. She was out nineteen diys. The Wnlrus arrived next with 15,000 seals, her full capacity. Then came the Neptune I with 80,000, the Hector with 15,000, the Esquimaux with 82,000 and tho Terra Nova I with 31,000, the Falcon with :37,0OO, the Van Guard with 10,000, the Kito with 29.000 and tho Panther with 10,000. The latter vessel lost 0,000 from her docks in a heavy swell. I In the gulf there aro at least a dozen ves sels, nearly nil of which have been heard from, reporting heavy catches. It is thought that tho catch this year by vossols will ox coed 450,000, and to this is to bo added tho shore catch, which will probably amount in Newfoundland to between 50,000 and 70,000. . When it is understood that this was all done inside of six weeks it is a remarkable show ing. EMPIRE STATE MASONS Celebrate tho Liquidation of a Debt or 1 Half a Million. NEW 1 oitK, April 25.

Four years ngo, whon Irand Master Law rence wns installed to that oxalted offlco, a craft debt of half a million dollars stared him in tho face.

In 1885, soon aftor Grand Master Law reuce had boon installed, ho began to ngitnta tho question of paying off tho debt. This has ut last been accomplished, and tho jubilee celebrating the success of tho credltablo un dertaking was held simultaneously by the lodges in every city, town and village In tho Emplru state. Bronze medals, as n souvonir of the ovont, were distributed. Grand Mostor Lawrence spoke at two meotings one at tho Masonio templo, in this city, and tho othor in Brook lyn. NOBLE MIFFED. Said to Do Piqued at Harrison's Method of Appointing. Washington, April 35. Secretary Noble was not in n good humor the other day, and he complained to some of his friends from Bt Louis that tho president was not giving him a fair show, "For all appointments in ray department, " said tho secretary, "I prepare a list of candi dates. On tiiis list I brief tho record, quali fications and indorsements of each man, and this brief I hand to tho president Ho reads simply tho name of tho first man on the list, sayB he does not want him and passes on to the next. He reads tho second name and says he doesn't want him. Then he goes along for four, five, six, or may bo ten names, and finally comes to ouo which he ap pears to'recognizo; 'That's tho man I want,' says tho president; 'appoint him.' My opin ions are not asked, and all my labor in pre paring tho brief I find was useloss. I don't like it." Several cabinet ministers havo spoken of tho president's lack of deference to their opinions. Another cabinet minister has given a moro philosophical explanation f the president's methods, saying: "Gen. Hnrrrison is a lawyer. For a good many years he has been at tho head of a law firm wherein all proper deference has beea shown him. It is simply his way of doing business, a habit of his life, and tho same methods he pursues in publio office without suspicion that his cabinet assistants wish to be moro directly consulted."

Philadelphia Pooplo Tender the Ilrmo Ofllcor n Dig Reception. Philadelphia, April 25. Capt. Hamilton Murrell, the rescuer of tho-780 human lives aboard tho D.inmark, was accorded au ova tion yesterday in tho rotunda of tho Muri tlmo exchange, such as has seldom been given beforo on tho spur of tho moment. The fact thero was so little preparation re sponded to by such an overwhelming im pulse to honor tho young commander indi cated pretty fairly the strong public senti ment of admiration nnd gratitude. The rotunda of tho exchaugo was crowded with people long beforo tho appointed hour for the reception to tako place. Whon Capt. Murroll arrived at noon ho was re ceived with loud cheers, clapping of hands and waving of hats. Soon nftor ho was presented with a sprig of ivy, from tho Westminster abby, London, and a gold medal handsomely inscribed from the Hu mano society, as a token of admiration for his brave acts. For nearly an hour Capt. Murrell received the congratulations of the crowd, all the while blushing liko a school girl. Finally ho made a brief address, in which he stated that he had merely dono his duty. He sincerely thanked the people, in the name of his officers, himself and crew. A subscription testimonial was started for Capt. Murrell, officers and crew, aud in less than five minutes $700 was raised. This amount is being rapidly augmented. When Capt. Murrell called on Mayor Fitten some one remarked: "Thero appears to be con siderable talk about the cargo which was thrown overboard from the Missouri V "That needn't cause any trouble," spoke up tho mayor before tho captain had an op portunity to mako a response. "I don't think we would huvo much troublo in get ting 40,000 people to contribute $1 each to pay for that loss." Last night Capt Murrell was banqueted by the Sons of St. George. NINE MILLIONS IN GAS.

Tho agents woro supposed to bo ncting for tho Vanderbllts and August Belmont. Whon, howover, James O'Connor nnd W. W.
