Washington, Dec. 4.The state de partment has been informed that al ready a new revolutionary movement has begun in San Domingo, even be fore the provisional government that ousted President Wos Gil has been able to solidify itself into a permanent government. These repeated uprisings, in the face of Minister Powell's warnings, have concentrated the attention of the Washington authorities upon the isl and, where much American capital is invested, and there may be a renewal in a more forcible manner of Minister Powell's declaration that the peace of the United States is not to be troubled in this fashion. It is learned that John G. Carlisle has been named as a representative of the United Spates in the arbitration of the claims of the San Domingo Im provement company against the Do minican republic, which was arranged for by former President Wos Gil as one of the last of his official acts.

New York. Dec. 4.Fifteen hundred steerage passengers sailed on the White Star liner Cedric. which left here during the day for Liverpool. This is the largest number of steer age passengers ever carried from a United States port on any steamer. The French line steamer La Tou raine. which sailed during tne day, carried 1.000 steerage passengers and it was estimated that over 200 steer age passengers with tickets were left on the dock owing to the overselling of accommodations. The line has agents all over the country selling tickets and as advices regarding the number of tickets sold for a vessel are not received until the day before sail ing it is impossible to control the number of tickets sold. Those who came first were sent on board after their tickets had been examined. AFTER HEATH'S PLACE. prepared. Charles W.

The custodian added, however, that the receivership would undoubtedly last several months. Federal Judge KohHaat has appoint ed Dowie temporary manager of Zion City's industries. It is the idea of the court and the receivers to Interfere as little as possible with the established order of Dowie's industries. Dowie will be the agent of the receivers and the arrangement will lie discontinued if it is found that the interests man aged by him are not made to pay.
