Mallendo, June 23.— steamer Cochahpal. which arrived to-day, reports that the Italian steamer Italia has been totally wrecked. Sixty-five lives were lost I Dastardly Attempt. Special to the Globe. Hamden, 0., June 23.— Last evening Miss Rilla Morrison, aged 17, went to meet her sister, who had gone home on Sunday morning to visit her parents, who live a mile and a half east of this place. Rilla, in the evening, left to meet Ella, and as she crossed the railroad a few hundred yards north of this place she was accosted by a young man, who inquired what her name was and on being informed said she was the girl he was looking for, as he had just come from her home and that her mother was dead— died at 3 o'clock. She began crying and started on, and he said he would ac company her. She assented, and they walked on until they came to a covered bridge east of here, when he made improper advances and was promptly rejected. He then took hold of her, placed one hand over her mouth and forced her down through a hole in the fence at the end of the bridge, and dragged her down to the water's edge, ' and there asked her again if she would sub mit—if not he would drown her. She re fused his demands, and he threw her in, holding to her feet until she was nearly drowned. Then he pulled her out and re newed his demands. He was re fused a second time, when he put her under and held her for some time, and when he pulled her out she had the pres ence of mind to say: "There's a man com ing." He broke and ran. She is badly bruised and her clothing torn. She de scribes the fellow as a young man of light j complexion, light hair, light . mustache, dressed in a blue suit with blue necktie, straw hat and new fine boots. The citizens are greatly excited, and if the scoundrel is caught a lively time is expected. . A Swindler's Methods. Lincoln, 111., June James H. Donley, who last week failed for §30,000, was arrested here to-day. Since 1879 he has been selling pianos and organs, taking in payment notes bearing 8 per cent In his business transactions he pledged these notes with men of this city. A. B. Roberts, a money lender, holds many of these notes, 200 of which are fictitious ones, and reputed to have been given by persons in all the adjoining counties. Yes terday Roberts visited De Witt county with a part of the security, to look up the per sons named, and learned he was the victim of a swindle. He returned to this city, visited Donley at his resi dence, and demanded payment. Donley expressed his inability to meet the demands and craved forgiveness and im munity from punishment. This afternoon he was arrested on four " charges. He an nounced a readiness for trial, but a continu ance was granted the state until the 20th. Donley claims to be innocent and explains that 'he was duped by agents. Roberts holds 851,000 of this fraudulent paper and expresses an intention of prosecuting to the end. This, with his failure last week, in creases Donley's liabilities to nearly ?90,000. Donley is a member of the Cum berland Presbyterian church and has taken an active part in temperance and Sunday school work. He gave bail for his appear ance. Dramatic Scene in Court. Marshall, Tex., June 23. — The cele brated case of Edward Bean for the murder of Stevens, has come to a dramatic ending. In a former trial he was found guilty and sentenced to be hanged. The case was taken to the court of appeals, which granted a new trial. Yesterday, when called upon to plead, young Bean arose and said: ' 'Your honor and. gentlemen of the jury, I plead guilty as an accomplice to the murder of Henry Stevens, and simply appeal to your humanity and mercy." The scene became more tragically intense when the widow of the murdered man came forward and pleaded that the prisoner's life might be spared. The district attorney yielded to these appeals. The court charged the jury, who retired and in fifteen minutes returned with a verdict of guilty, and fixing his pun ishment at hard labor in the penitentiary for life. 7-- 7 7 y ; /./-■ mm The Perm Bank Case. Pittsrurg, Pa., June 23. — The jury in the Perm bank conspiracy case retired at 3 o'clock this afternoon. Judge Hull's charge was decidedly favorable to the de fendants. He held that if three directors knew of the transaction there could be no ; conspiracy on the part of Riddle and Rieber; that the treasurer was .the legal custodian of the funds; that the notice to three directors was a legal notice .to all the board, and that the bank had a legitimate right under its charter to deal outside. It is the general impression that the jury will either acquit or disagree. After 8 o'clock to-night the jury agreed upon a verdict which they sealed and filed with one of the tipstaves. It will be opened in the court to-morrow morning. The Pittsburg Trunk Murder Case. Chicago, June — The trial of the five Italians, Giovanni Azari, Ignazio Silvestry, ; Augustine Gelardi, Antonio Mercurio and Ignazio Bova, for the murder on April 30, at 74 Tilden avenue, of Fillippe Caruso, whose body they packed in . a trunk and ' shipped to Pittsburg, was begun this morn ing in Judge Hawes' branch of the criminal court. Miss Kate Kane appeared for Azari, Maurice Baumbun, a colored lawyer, for Silvestry and Gelardi, and two other attorneys for Bova and Mercurio. There is very little public interest taken in the case. The entire jury panel had not been secured up to the time of adjournment of court for the day. _________ To Flog the Wife-Beater. Baltimore, June 23.— case of Henry A. Meyers, convicted of brutally beating his wife, and sentenced to one years imprisonment and twenty lashes, came before the supreme court this afternoon on an appeal for a new trial.

New York, June 23.— John MeCullough, the tragedian, wandered about the Sturte vant house in an aimless way this morning and it was evident to the most casual obser ver',that he did not know what hejwas doing. Clerk Hitchcock kept his eye on him. The clerk had hard trouble with him Sunday afternoon. "He has threatened to kill me," said Mr. Hitchcock. "If he comes near me again I'll hit him. -. I don't care if he is irresponsible. If he is his friends ought to take care of him. - Every body in the house is tired of him, but the Lelands are reluctant to make any move in the matter." Mr. Horace Leland said: "We certainly will do something very soon. He is not capable of taking care of him self and is liable at any time to do injury to somebody. We have to watch him to keep him from setting fire to the house. He does not even know enough to eat his meals. We have telegraphed to his wife and sister and expect them here this evening. 7 If they do not take charge of him we will ap peal to Capt. Williams. John is \ a friend of ours, but we can't stand everything." Capt Connor of the St. James hotel, who has been McCullough's friend and business partner for years, says that he will not take ; the first step, and this seems to be \ the trouble with everybody. Capt. Connors says he ought to De put in an j asylum, but the only one who can do that is his wife. . MM-MmM mm Tale Commencement.

Settlers. Nearly Two Score of Clerical Heads Yield X 'yyy ■ to It and More to Follow. „ First Assistant Postmaster. Hay, Re quires Personal Responsibility 7.7- for indorsements. India-Rubber Land Titles Occasion Great Trouble to Settlers In New Mexico. The Crow Creek Reservation. Special to the Globe. : 'v7 r? ,777 ' : 'i7^7 Washington, June 23.— The adminis tration is embarrassed in the position of the Crow Creek reservation matter by the re ceipt of . a letter from Bishop Hare, • who urgently protested against the violation of Indian treaty rights in the first place. The announcement of the determination of President Cleveland and Secretary Lardar to drive out all the settlers under j the j proclamation of the 17th of April induces the bishop to write that, while no doubt a good deal of the land thrown open by President Arthur's proclamation has been taken up purely for speculative purposes, there are many worthy bonafide settlers who be lieved the executive order which declared the reservation open to be valid, final and conclusive. These are chiefly persons of small means who have spent their all in reaching the reserva tion and making improvements. Then dispossession would, the bishop believes, . work incalculable hardships and drive them almost .to desperation. Their case, the bishop says, appeals powerfully, to every fair-minded man and he invokes the gen erous and immediate consideration of the government It is believed at the interior department that force will, have to be used in such a way as to open the ques tion for the courts. There will be no for midable use of troops and marshals. One case will be selected for a test 7 There are, it is estimated, -. several thousand settlers now on the reservation, which . makes the question one of great importance. It is regarded as more serious to deal with than the Oklahoma problem. The cabinet will consider it again to-morrow. Clouded Land Titles. . Special to the Globe. Washington, June 23.— "The trouble we have over our land grants," explained United States District Attorney Pritchard of New Mexico, "comes from the indefi nite boundaries which are set forth in the titles. In no other country, except Mexico,, and we get our custom from there, will you find the deeds drawn so loosely. For example, one line will be set forth as running from a little canyon to a hill. Of course, it is easy enough to stretch such a line. A canyon I and a hill, which are only a mile apart, I may be takenas the 'designated points, or another canyon and another hill which are ten or twentymiles apart may bo considered the corner. From this you can easily see how the boundaries set forth in old Mex ican grants can be made to grow. We call them India rubber titles. Suppose the . possessors of a grant profess to -believe the more remote landmarks were meant |to be their limits. They go to work and obtain testimony to es tablish their theory. They collect numerous affidavits, which appear to- confirm very strongly the view that is desired. Every body knows how easy it is to make up a case on . ex-parte \ testimony. When, to all this evidence, the owners of the grant add a patent from the government, issued -on .the strength of this testimony, -7 they hold a ; strong 7 position. But it may not be a just one. I think the course of the gen eral land office, under Gen. Sparks, in scrutinizing very closely these grant ques tions, is very popular in the territory. Many of our people have secured homes with what they supposed were good titles, only to discover afterward that some grant lines had been stretched 7 out so as to take them in. Clouded titles have become the curse with us, and our progress has been • greatly retarded by reason of this grant litigation." Couldn't Qualify. Spec! alto the Globe. Washington, June 23. The latest il lustration of recklessness in the indorse ment of office-seekers is at the expense of Representative Hopkins. The fact that Mr.Hopkiusis one of the last men to be sus pected of such a thing adds to the apprecia tion of the story. The Pittsburg congress man, recently pressed with some earnest ness , a constituent for the appointment of agent to collect labor statistics. He represented to the secretary that his candi ; date was emphatically a man of the people, having come up from bed rock and amassed some means through his native shrewdness. In short, he presented the case so success fully that Mr. Lamar said he was satisfied and would give the Pittsburg Democrat the place without further inquiry. Mr. Hop kins was told to send his man around.' 5 He did so, giving the candidate a letter of introduction. Mr. Lamar looked the Pittsburger over and saw he was all right. - -Indeed, he was rather taken with the appearance of the applicant and with out further ceremony the appointment was made out - and the two blank forms of official ; oaths were • placed before the candidate, that he might qualify in the usual manner by subscribing his name to the one' best suited to his record. Mr. Hop kin's - self-made looked at the papers and then \at the clerk, who was about to take the jurat; After a few . minutes he blurted out: "Look yar, can't write." The matter was briefly reported to Mr. Lamar and the secretary, as kindly as possible, explained that it was absolutely essential that as tatistical agent should be up "the threeßs, "and then sent the self-made man back to Pittsburg. If the secretary thought anything he reserved its expression for his next interview with Mr. Hopkins. Treasury Dismissals. Washington, June —Secretary Man ning made a number of dismissals in the reasury department to-day, including six : teen clerks in the sixth auditor's office, and : eighteen messengers, most of whom were employed in the internal revenue bureau. It is expected that more removals will be made * between now and the Ist prox. Mr. Graves, chief of the bureau of engrav ing and printing, had an interview with Secretary Manning this afternoon in regard to the proposed reorganization of that bu reau. . The policy to be pursued is not quite settled, but it appears to be generally un derstood that the force .will be reduced and the expenses curtailed. * - Who is Responsible for Hay? 7 Special to the Globe. v Washington, June 23.— First Assistant Postmaster General Hay is afflicted occa sionally with the freak of asking personal responsibility, for indorsements. Sometimes he is stubbornly persistent on this point. Ex-Representative Cassidy recently went to him in the interest of a man from Nevada. Mr. Hay asked: "Will you make yourself personally 7 responsible for - this man if I should : appoint ; him?" "It would be lan excellent appointment" replied Mr. Cassidy. ",' "But do . you know the gentleman. ;7 - Will you r. be personally . ; 7 responsible y for him?". Tne ex-congressman explained that it had been six years since he had seen the man and that meanwhile he had not kept track of him; But he was a good man when they had been thrown 1 together.' and there was the testimony of reputable citizens that he had maintained his reputation. - "But can you-of your own personal knowledge vouch for his character?" ' insisted the inexorable official. "I tell you I have not seen him for six years." "Well, would * you h indorse ; his note for $10,000 as' you have indorsed his papers." This staggered" Cassidy for a moment but he 7 replied \ ■ emphatically: >"I would, for I know he? has property enough to make me secure. 7 ; Now you know I wouldn't recommend anybody I y did not think was all right, but you can't expect not to take the ordinary risks." .?£ Mr.' Hay thought there was not enough certainty about the recommendation,- 7 and said he could not make any appointment under such circumstances.- ' •* .

The expenditures have been greater for pensions and deficiencies 7 than was an ticipated, so the surplus for the fiscal year will be probably between 815,000.000 aud §20,000,000 less than was calculated by Secretary McCulloch in his report to con gress last year,' leaving the surplus at about §20,000,000 instead of §39,000,000. j Who They Are. y-'y Washington, June 23.— William W.

Delegates Living on the Fat of the Land at Portland, yfe Empty Sleeves and Wooden Legs Gen- erally at a Premium, Portland, Me., June 23. — The second day . of the national encampment - of the Grand Army of the Republic is as beautiful as could be desired for the great procession. The streets through which the parade was to pass were crowded" with people and gay with bunting. * At 11 o'clock the signal gun for starting the procession was -fired, and the great line moved forward without confusion. Not until the ; procession had passed a given point was it made apparent how great is the number of Grand Army men now here. It had been calculated that it would require two hours for the procession to pass, but it took more than | three hours. The most careful - estimates }- of the number of men in line place the figures at 25,000, of which number 20,000 wore the uniform of the Grand Army of the Repub lic. | It appears that some commanders in several of the departments had been over looked in the instructions as to their po sitions in the parade, and : those who were neglected, after wandering about for a time, and finding no place assigned to them, gave up the idea of joining in the procession and took favorable positions for watching the marching of 1 their comrades. Entire parts of many of the departments, including A NUMBER FROM THE WEST, and even the department of Maine, did not participate *in the parade, and because of this neglect it is . calculated that more than five thousand members did not parade. The oversight was due .to the disregard of official orders that all posts should register on arrival. The executive ? committee declare . that nearly thirty per cent more have come than the committee had been notified would be here. Twenty-two hundred tents have been pitched with a capacity, for accommodating about 13,000 men.'- Instead of six, it has been found necessary in some cases to put ten men in a tent. 7 This crush could not be foreseen by the committee, and they dis claim any responsibility. Commander-in- Chief Kountz was greeted with generous applause from all- sides, and Gen. Logan, who rode in a carriage with :. Congressman Reid. received a continuous ovation. The i ; general kept § his Ej head uncovered nearly every moment after entering the procession." The veterans received" many ovations as they passed. Not a few were there whose empty sleeves or wooden legs told - the tales .of bloody battles. When the line had entered Congress street on its way to the encamp ment where the procession was to be dis missed, Commander-in-Chief ; Kountz, Gen. Logan and many other , distinguished men, left the procession and were driven rapidly through the streets to the reviewing stand. UPON THE GRAND STAND was Commander-in-Chief Kountz, Gens. Logan, Storm. Robinson, Beal. Boet, ex- Gov. Fairchild pf Wis., and Gov. Charles Alger and staff of . Michigan. .. After •. the ; end of the procession had r passed the grand stand the soldiers called loudly for Gen. Logan, who was obliged to respond briefly, referring merely to the benefits of G. A. R. i gatherings. In ' the evening a reception ! was tendered to Commander-in-Chief Kountz, as representative : of the body at the city hall. Addresses of welcome were delivered by. Gen. Hall, department commander of Maine; 'by Gov. Robie, ; who also paid a tribute to Gen. Grant, and by Mayor Deering. Commander ' Kountz re plied on behalf of himself and . comrades. Addresses were also made by Gov. Alger of Michigan, ex-Gov. Fairchild of Wisconsin, Gen. Henry W. Slocum of New York and Gen. Logan. Senator Logan prefaced his remarks with a fervent eulogy of Gen. Grant. He said: ."In ray judgment time has hot given to any ' people a grander com mander of men, a greater organizer of forces, a more magnificent campaigner [ap plause], a man with more ability to execute, than U. S. Grant. For this country he has done as much as " any man that ever j lived has ever \ done for any other country.", [Great applause.] Gen. Logan closed with an eulogy of the Grand Army organization. Gov. Anthony of Kansas made the. closing address. 1 ■ "Why Men are Preferred. ;. \ r y ■_. .-: Wash. Letter In Louisville Courier-Journal. I asked a chief of one of the bureaus this morning why such a great and seemingly unjust discrimination was made against females after their competency for the places had been so 'well established. |He replied about as follows: "There are a number of reasons why we prefer " men to women for department work. The first reason is that women are more susceptible to complaints than men and lose more time by sickness. ' The record shows this. When a woman has the headache, :or is feeling badly otherwise, you are more naturally sympathetic with her J than you would ..be with a man, and, if it, is possible, .would much prefer her going home than remain ing at her desk. Then you do not care to boss a woman around like you would a man. or scold her if she should fail to 7do her work. And then there are women who will not stand being reprimanded/and talk back to you savagely and then subside into a spell of sulks that will last several days. All of this is very unpleasant, ? and it does not occur often with the male clerks. 7 77| . m — "——. Delegates Elected.

Washington, June 23.— N0 additional advices- have been received at the interior department to-day concerning the troubles existing at the Cheyenne and Arapahoe In . dian ; agency in the Indian Territory, but the I situation is regarded as threatening. This agency was last inspected by Inspector Gardener yon Sept. 23, 1884, when, after stating the little advancement made by these Indians, he reported in substance - as : follows: - "The Indians have no desire to become farmers or try to become self-sup j porting as long as the government supports 7 them in idleness.,' The dog soldiers prevent those inclined to work from working. They consider themselves ~ master .of the situa tion, and have defied the ; agent and the military :at Fort Reno. 7 7 Agent ; Dyer .has ; made a fair statement "• of the situation, and should he push these people in the matter of farming, he will meet with resistance from the dog soldiers,, and in such a case - the military force at Reno is entirely too small, numbering only 268 soldiers. ;' It should be increased to ten companies. . The Indians are numbered as' follows: Arapahoes, , 2; 196 ; . Cheyennes, ; 3,769; children at school in the states, 304; [ ' total, 627. These Indians are well armed and well supplied with ammunition, and the male . adults above 18 years number from 1,300 to 1,400. At the Arapahoe school the pupils number I fifty-seven, . and at the Cheyenne school thirteen. The Indians say they will not send any more children to school .' until they - have a talk with the great father in ' Washington." Secretary Lamar has invited Col. : William McMichael of New York, a member of the board of Indian commissioners, to serve as a member of a board to investigate the dif ferences and troubles existing afc-the* Chey enne agency, and he has signified his ac- j ceptance and will report to the secretary at once for instructions. Crook's Indian Campaign. Washington, ■ June 23. '— From Fort Bowie, June 13, Gen. Crook reports that he has reason to believe that a small party of Indians are still in the mountains of the up per Gila river. " Scouts have been sent out under Gatewood to drive "' them out or de stroy them. Gen. Crook says it is his pur , pose to place troops at all water holes along i the border from the Rio Grand as far' west as necessary to prevent the Indians return ing to the United States should they driven out of Mexico. This disposition will not be made, however, until 'Gate-, wood reports that i there are : no hostiles on • our - side of viV the border, in order that the 'hostiles now in . Mexico ' may not , become acquainted with the position of our troops,: whom . he (Gen. Crook) will, endeavor to hide. Cheyenne scouts will assist in watching for the '. ap proach of the hostiles. Gen. Crook says it is to be expected that the hostiles will con i tinue their retreat at least as far south , as | the point reached on his trip two years ago, and it is thought they may go as far as the mountains of Sina Loa, south of the Sonora. 9 It will, therefore, be a considera- . ble time before the expedition can be heard from. v -"'• 7 ■:■;.• ■. *.- .:-•* :- • ■ ...
