WAR NOW IMMINENT. Great Excitement in Spain, Owing to Germany's Occupation of the Car oline Islands. The German Embassy at Madrid Sur rounded by a Mob Who Attack the Building. Spain Declines to Consent to a Settle ment of the Matter by Arbi tration. Belief that "War Will Ensue or that King Alfonso will be Over thrown. Scenes of Terror. Madkid, Sept 5.—A sensation was caused here this morning on the receipt of important news from the Caroline Is lands. The Spanish war ships reached Yap, one of the islands, on the 21st alt and prepared to occupy it in the name of Spain. Tho Spanish officers were dilatory in landing troops, and on the '24th of the same month a German gunboat arrived. Although it was 7 o'clock in the even ing, the German commander instantly landed a body of marines and sailors ami hoisted tho German flag over the island. The Spanish officials made an energetic pro test against the action of the German com modore, and. on the latter* s refusal to re cede from the position he had taken, tele graphed to Madrid for instructions. A conflict between the Germans and Spanish at Yap is feared. On the receipt of the above news, the ministers were im mediately summoned to a cabinet council, " and King Alfonso was advised of the strained situation. Count Solms Sonnewalde,the German ambassador, has returned to the legation in this city from La Grange. lie was escorted by a Btrong military guard. King Alfonso lias »lso returned to the city and is now presid !ng at a cabinet council. Everything is now orderly throughout the city, although the most intense excitement prevails. Thepop ttlace are wild with rage. A large crowd gathered in front of the German embassy, ATTACKED TIIK lUILDIXG and tore down the coai-of-anns and dragged it through the streets to the Puerta del Sol, where they burned it in front of the office of the minister of the interior amid yells of "down with Germany." Alter venting their spleen there the mob proceeded to the French embassy and cheered frantically. The crowd had by this lime grown to con siderable proportions, and fears being enter tained of a serious riot, troops were ordered out to clear the streets. Tlie crowd slowly retired before the military, but a riot is feared at any moment. The situation is very grave. The council of ministers has adopted a proposition to court-martial the irnor of Yap and the commanders of the two Spanish war ships, which arrived there on the 21st lilt., for neglect of duty, the latter in not immediately garrisoning the island with Spanish soldiers on their arrival there and the former in not hoisting Tlie Spanish liag and proclaiming the suzer ainty of Spain-over the island. The report thai a German squadron had Bailed for the Caroline is confirmed. Fifty-six leaders of the mob were arrested before the crowd re tired. AX EttPOBTAKT MEETING of ieading Liberals was held to-day at the residence <>t Senor Sagasta. After discus sing the Carolines question, it was resolved that the occupation of the island of Yap by p. German gunboat would be considered equivalent to a declaration of war; that if a crisis on the government should occur and the Liberals be called into the power, they would withdraw Count De Bono mar, Hie Spanish ambassador at Ber lin, and hand Count Solms Sonne walde, 1 lie German ambassador at Madrid, his passports. The resolutions also de cided that the Liberals would order the Spanish authorities at Phillipines to recover the territory in the Caroline islands taken possession of by Germany, and to use force, if necessary, to regain it. The adoption of the above resolutions has created a great Bensation. The government has dismissed irom the service the commanders of the two Spanish men-of-war stationed at Yap. A LATER DISPATCH respecting the German occupation of Yap island states that the governor of that island wished to resist the landing of the German marines and sailors, but that the commander of the Spanish man-of-war, San Quentine, which was the only ves sel of that nationality in the harbor at the timo, refused to agree with the government as to tiie adoption of such a course or to lend the latter assistance. It is generally believed the commander of the Spanish man-of-war Velasco, which •was expected at Yap on the26th of August, carries with him energetic orders. The ministers and the civil and military authorities met King Alfonso at the depot on his arrival in this city. Large crowds of people lined the route token by the royal party in going from the depot to the palace and shouting, "Long live Spain." The king was repeatedly greeted with rheers. Notwithstanding the excitement the most perfect order prevailed, official report has boon made concerning the cabinet council held this afternoon, pre sided over by King Alfonso. The report Fays the government cannot now make pub lic the measures decided upon, but that the country may be assured they were of an energetic character. Reports further say the government decided that negotiations respecting the outrage on an integral part of Spanish territory are impossible. MUST EXPLAIN. Betu/tx, Sept. 5. —The National Zeitunsr commenting on the scones enacted in .Ma drid on receipt of the news of the German occupation of Yap, says Spain must give Germany the necessary satisfaction for the events of last evening. The other news papers are silent in regard to the affair. NOT HER FUNEBAX. Paris. Sept. 5. —Le Paris says editorially that France has no reason to medrtle with the Spanish-German quarrel, and should re member IS7O. M. De Freycinct, the French minister of foreign affairs, has telegraphed Baron Dcs Michaels, the French ambassa dor at Madrid, to observe the greatest prudence during the difficulties at Madrid over the Carolines affair. The events in Madrid are causing a sensa tion in this city. Arbitration for the set tlement of the Carolines question is now considered impossible and the position of Kinjr Alfonso and his ministry is regarded as precarious. Leading Spanish residents in this city say that war between Spain and Germany or a revolt is now certain. La France and Le Paris say that King Alfonso will be overthrown unless he heads the war party. NO ARBITRATION. London, Sept. s.—The Standard's Ber lin correspondent says: Spain has finally and decidedly declined to submit the Caro lines affair to arbitration. Spain argues that the question of Spanish jurisdiction over the islands has been a fact too well known to admit of discussion. German government officials still scout the idea of war over the dispute. Another Report. New York, Sept. 5.—A Madrid dispatch gays: Last night oflleial dispatches reached the government from the Phillipines stating that a German gunboat landed troops on the night of the 34th of August at Yap Island and hoisted the German flag there. The Spanish vessels Fuentine and Manilla were at Yap bay at the time. The captains of the Spanish" vessels and the Spanish government protested with energy .against the occupation. The Spanish gunboats cleared decks for action and the Manela was about to open lire upon the Germ.au gunboat when she was signaled to desist, whicli she did most reluctantly. A third Spanish vessel, r V^ *""'^»"'O^doW« <^«'W —/<T—' the Yalastero, has arrived at Yap bay. This news causes the wildest excitement throughout Spain. Crowds gathered in the streets of Madrid all night long, fran tically gesticulating and calling the Em peror William, the crowu prince and Bis marck the vilest names. Several thous and people shouting "death to Bismarck" and "viva Espana,"' mobbed the German embassy, smashing the windows, breaking into a thousand pieces the German arms on the embassy building and tramping the fragments under their feet. The embassy was completely mobbed. The furniture and mirrors were dashed to pieces, the people almost foaming at their mouths with frenzy. Some of the soberest Span iards with whom I talked feel confident that the affair must now end either by war or revolution. Sentiment in Washington. Special to the «lob«. Washington, Sept. 5. —Count Leyden, the charge d'affairs of the German legation, said this afternoon that he thought tho strained relations between his government and Spain would not result in an open rup ture, although rtuch an event was of course possible. When asked about thy Caroline islands incident, the count declined to dis cuss it. Minister Yolera is not in town but one of his attaches said that tho advicss received at the Spanish legation were of the gloomiest description. Be added that hopes were still entertained that the differences between the two coun tries will be amicably adjusted, lie begged to be excused from making any comment upon the attitude of the two governments in relation to the possession of the Caroline islands. At the legation the situation is thought to be extremely critical. The rep resentatives of both nations would not be surprised if war was declared w iihin a very few days. Foreign Affairs ltevicwed. Special to the Globo. Chicago, Sept. s.—The London cable to the Times to-night says: Upon the Irish question the issue is fully formed, and the battle of the elections la already opened. Lord Hartington has given what was at once acknowledged by moderate men of all parties as the broadly English reply to Mr. Parnell's demand for Irish legislative independence. Lord Hartington is grateful to Mr. Parnell for clearly defining the conditions ou which an alliance with him can be purchased, but is confident that no political party will con sent to get oflice by conceding such terms. On the contrary, he thinks that all parties in England will forget other differences and unite to impose v firm veto on proposals that are fatal to the Integrity of the empire aud the prosperity of the English people. Such a positive declaration from the prospective Liberal leader, who struck the keynote at tlie last general election and by pacifying alarms secured so much sup port for the Liberals, has produced wide spread satisfaction, only tempered by re flection that Lord Hartington, though de cided in public speech, often laiis to main tain his position against pressure from ad vanced political colleagues. The weak point of Lord Hartingtoirs estimate of the situation was the supposition that Mr. Paine!! might be UXAIiLE TO COMMAND unswerving obedience from an increased number 01 followers. The proofs grow that Irish candidates refusing the PameU pledge have no chance. The archbishop of Tuaui has withdrawn his support from Mr. Mitchell Henry, who would prefer to be in dependent of Mr. Parnell in Gal way. No leader except Lord Hart ington.lm publicly dealt with Mr. Pav;n'i: ultimatum. — Lord- Randolph Churchill, at Sheffield, last night," studiously: advocated tin's (for him) delicate subject. Faint indi cations are found of a disposition toward concession in some radical quarters, and Wilfred Ghent, the eccentric Conservative candidate, says he would leave the Irish people to carry out their wishes. Other wise reply to Mr. Parneil is impossible. Mr. Gladstone's pronouncement is waited with keen interest. He has returned from the Norway voyage in good health and in unproved voice. While Mr. Parnell's emphatic repi tition of his demand at the Dublin banquet is considered by Englishmen here to dam age his reputation for sagacity, his ridicule of a combination of all the Liberal and Tory factions against him causes a. little uneasi ness as containing elements of a well formed prediction of the future, course of events. His warning against outrage is very significant, say Englishmen here of his own PEAK OF HIS INABILITY to hold moonlighters in check. The conse quences of the abandonment of tiie crimes act are watched in London with growing apprehension. 'United Ireland' exults over the omission of ioyal sentiments at the Dublin mansion banquet Except for the passage respecting Ireland, Lord Huntiug ton's speech was unimpressive, and supplied neither a good party cry nor a striking program. He would promote cheap land transfers and county government His condemnation of so-called socialistic land proposals has given great offense io the Birmingham section and is strongly de nounced by Mr. Chamberlain's party organ. Mr. Parnell's advice to his followers to dis countenance agrarian outrages is percepti bly bearing fruit At the meeting of the Cork branch of the National league it was unanimously resolved to adhere to the Dublin conference program of disavowing outrages and supporting only such candi dates lor parliament as would pledge them selves to act as a unit on the Parnellite pro gram. The principal speakers denounced the outrages. A memorial to the Earl of Carnarvon, viceroy of Ireland, praying for the release of the Mayo prisoners, is being circulated throughout Ireland for signatures and is everywhere securing the support of the most influential people. Uio:« Continue. London, Sept. s.—The riots between Germans and Czechs, in Bohemia, continue, and greatly disturb the Austrian govern ment. It is feared that Germany may take umbraee at the state of affairs and demand heavy indemnities for Germans injured by the rows. Many riots have occurred, but the majority of them have been hashed by the government officials, in order to pre vent the hostile spirit between the conilict ing parties from spreading. Ireland Getting There. Dublin', Sept. s.—Mr. Timothy M. Hea ley, member of parliament for Monaghan, in a speech at Londonderry, said that Ire land had gained concession after concession which had been deemed impossible for her to obtain, and would ultimately secure all that she desired. The Cholera Record. Madrid, Sept. s.—There were 1,238 new cases of cholera and 797 deaths from the disease reported yesterday throughout Spain. IX ITALY. Home, Sept. s.—There were five cases of cholera reported at,Xovara yesterday. Two deaths were reported in the commune of Yergane and scattered cases in Liguria. The patients are mostly French refugees. The disease shows no tendency to spread. Churchill's Address. London, Sept. s.—Lord Randolph Churchill, in an address at Sheffield last evening declared the Tories had decided not to coerce Ireland before they had entered office. He contended that Lord Harting ton in his inmost heart leaned toward the Tories. Hostilities Suspended. Cairo, Sept. 5. —Information has been received here that hostilities have been sus pended at Kassala. The garrison still holds its arms and retains possession of the town,^ which is fed by friendly Haikiukas. ST. PAUL, SUNDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 6, 1885.—SIXTEEN PAGES. HOADLY'S HUBRAH. Ohio's Gifted Governor Opens the Buckeye Democratic Campaign With a Powerful Speech. Sensible Eeply to Sherman and Foraker's Bloody Shirt Tirades and Their Cries of Wah! Democratic Victory Means Reform, Union, Personal Liberty and Economy. Republican Propliecy Falsified and Republican Prophets Silenced by tlie Administration. Battle of ihe Buckeyes. Hamilton', 0., Sept. s.—Gov. Hoadly opened the campaign here this evening in a speech which occupied two ho>—? in its de livery, lie faced a very k audience and beginning his address said: "Fellow Citizens of Butler County: Two years ago I opened in your midst the cauvass which re sulted in Democratic success. Surrounded now by the friends who gave me the mag nificeut majority of 2.89: iin this Gibraltar of Democracy, I ask for a renewed expression of confidence, and for an increased maiority which snail express with emphasis your opinion that Democratic success, as proved by results, means not only good government, but means reform, union, personal liberty, economy, no fraud, no disguises, no concealment*, open dealing and candid treatment of the public affairs, state and national. The Ohio election will express the opinion of the people upon my administration and that of the Sixty-sixth general assembly. It is the first state elec tion after the inauguration of Cleveland. It will therefor bo regarded as an expres sion of popular judgment upon the policies of the president and his advisers. Of these 1 ask your approval, confident Democratic success. MEANS GOOD GOVERNMENT, state and national, which ought not to be rebuked by defeat Tlie leader of the llo publicans of Ohio has carefully prepared the appeal of his party, and sent it from the stump through the press to the country. It was the bloody shirt. He indorses the policy of alienation and hate. He seeks to transplant and cultivate in the country the feelings of the English aristocracy towards the Irish, section against section; to govern the South from the North as Dublin castle governs Ireland, as a conquered province, and all this in the year of grace 1885, twenty years and moce after the close of the war. The average life of an ordinary generation is thirty years. Owing to the casualties of tlie war which cost our country at least a million lives the duration of the generation now passing away has been less than this. Twenty-live years have elapsed since Air. Lincoln's election. Five-sixths perhaps more of tho men who devisad the rebellion, the men who fought its battles aud the men who overcame it, has passed away. The great civil and the great mili tary leaders, Lincoln and Grant, both sleep in graves bedewed with tears of the wtiolo nation, South and North, for both died with words upon their lips and feeling iv their hearts of charity to alLiualice towards none.

The spirit of reform and economy has entered all the departments. Useless offices and expenses have been done away, while the performance of duty, civil and military, has been enforced. The government is not solicitous to provide soft places for pets, but to save money for the people «nd to keep the faith pledged in the platform. If the navy which the Repub lican party destroyed bo restored, it is now certain that it will be honestly done. Un der this administration there" will be no loose contracting, no jobs let out, prices nominally low to be made high by extras, or by scrimping the work. The remnant of the national domain which Democratic presidents, Jefferson and Monroe and Polk, added to our territory, the residue which Republican extravagance has not wasted on corporations and favorites is saved from cattle kings and other plunderers for the benefit of the people. □It is sweet.it is delicious,brethren,to hear the Republican lamentation as expressed by Sherman, who worked the treasury depart ment for all it was worth in 1880 to nomin ate himself for president and who never recommended a Democrat for civil office in his life, that the impartial, non-partisan civil service of our country is in danger. If Hancock, the superb leader of the Loyal legions in battle, was elected, dire calamity and the carnival of treason would ensue, they said. But lo! the hour has come and the man. Democracy has effectually prevailed at last and : where is the calamity? What has become of the disaster? Business reviving, stocks advanc ing! Are these the tokens of distress? True times are still hard, made so by Republican misgovernment. Rome was not built in a day or a year. It is only six months since the : Republicans lost power. It may be that the . revivals of industry that we read of are not the results of Democratic success. They are at any rate co-incident. Republi can prophecy is falsified and Republican prophets silenced. The Bead Celestials. Cheyenne, Wyo., Sept. 5. —A telegram from Rock Springs gives tho latest that can be obtained of tho recent auti-Chinese troub les. All is quiet to-day and the miners have returned to work. At a meeting held last night, meas ures were taken to put a stop to the drunken carousals of a few of their number who have been celebrating the re moval of the Chinese. Two more dead Celestials were found to-day, one in tho ruins of Chinatown and another beneath the ijiilroad bridge about a mile east. The latter had been wounded, and managed to walk that far before he gave up. Your correspondent talked with the miners to-day who took an active part In the attack upon Chinatown and was told that less than a third of the dead Chinese in the ruins of the house have' been found thus far. They say that no less than twenty-five were shot down inside the burning buildings. These buildings had dirt roofs which cov ered up the dead Chinamen when the dwell ings succumbed to the llames, and as no actual search has been made in the mines it is quite probablo that it is true. Chinamen are still arriving at the stations east and west almost dead from fright and weak from fatiguo and lack of blood. All are shipped to Evaustou by the company. They reiterate the statement that many have died in the hills from wounds received in the attack upon them. It is reported that the white miners at Alma, in the western end of tho territory, have notified the Chinese laborers in these mines that they must leave inside of three days, and that the Union Pacific has guaranteed their removal within the time specified. The Celestials along the road refused to work to-day, and demanded passes to Evanston. Chinese lauudrymen and servants at Green River were told last night they must leave within twelve hours, and they will go west on to-day's express. A Surewd Swindle. Vincexxes, Ind., Sept. s.—An investi gation of the alleged townships trustees' swindle, as perpetrated in Davies county, Indiana, twenty miles east of this city, re veals what appears to be the most astound ing official corruption. There are three trustees involved, Charles A. Brown of Washington township, John Grimsley of Steele township and John Clarke of Barr township. It is said the trustees would issue long-time warrants on their townships, drawing 8 per cent, inter est. These warrants or orders are the same as a note made payable at the Bank and on their face show that they are executed by j the township trustees to the holder in con j sida ration of a certain amount of money j paid to the trustee for school supplies. A trustee finds no trouble in disposing of these warrants. It is said the three trustees mentioned have prac ticed this, and scores of these warrants have been issued and put upon the market and gobbled up by money-lenders. The towu^uip trustees are supposed to have gone to Canada. Some time will elapse before j the full extent of the losses will !bo known. If the warrants are legal, Davies county is ruined, and if not—and the question is a line point in law to be set tled. The scores of capitalists in Indianap olis, Coicago, St. Louis, Cincinnati and throughout the middle states it is claimed are out of pocket. It is estimated that war rants on Washington township have been issued to the amount of .75,000. although son>.e claim twice that ainoaiu, state town ships §50,000 and bar townships 850,000. Xli: tabor Situation. St. Louis, Sept. 5. —Inquiry at the office of General Manager A. A. Talmadge of the Wabash to-day showed that there was little news on the Wabash labor difficulties. Manager Talmadge said he had made no re ply t>i Messrs. Powderly and Turner of the Knights of Labor other than the verbal answer given yesterday refusing to accede to their demand. He last uitfht sent to Secretary Turner the stenographer's report of the conference with the Knights of Labor committee, and this is ail the communication he has had with them. A dispatch from Sedalia. Mo., states that Messrs. Powderly and Turner reached there this afternoon. They went ir.tu secret conclave with leading commit teemen there, but nothing of the result has been disclosed. Power of iJie Pope. Londojt, Sept. 5. —At the meeting of the Catholics at Minister, Prussia, Dr. Wind hort. the Prussian Catholic loader, said the pope still ruled the world. The holy chair must be made independent of the powers. Wo now, he said, stand steadfast for the pope through life or death. The speaker asked for throe cheers for Pope Leo, which were given with enthusiasm. Several reso lutions were passed demanding the uncon ditional repeal of the chief May laws, es pecially those dealing with religious orders and the education of the clergy. VVA.r.uu.a spakks.

"O'Brien, Campbell and myself," said McCaffrey, '"called upon Referee Tate at Toledo, on Thursday, to try and have him change his decision. He was shown the articles of agreement, and although he refuse:! to alter his verdict, ad mitted that if he had seen them before the fight, he would have decided it a draw. The articles of agreement originally con tained the words/scientific points to count,' but this clause was stricken out at Sulli van's request. Another thing, the gloves were to be three ounces, whereas they were only one ounce and worse than bare knuckles." Base Ball. AT PHILADELPHIA. Philadelphia, Sept. 5. —The New Yorks fielded miserably to-day, and well deserved the defeat they received at the hands of their Philadelphia club. They also disgusted many of the Philadelphia admir ers by their trickery in the sixth inning, done for the purpose of prolonging the game. Their hope was that rain, which was then falling lightly, would cause a stoppage of the game, and throw the score back to the fifth inniag,givingthem victory. They did not gain their point, however, as the full six innings was completed before the rain began to fall fast. It then began to rain hard, but the New Yorkers would n»t allow the game to be stopped. It was also growing very dark. Philadel phia had completed its eighth inning and New York had scored one, with one put out and two men on bases, when the farce was ended by the umpire calling the game, it being so dark that the ball could scarcely be seen passing from one player to another. Deasley hurt his hand in the sixth inning and Ewing caught the rest of the game. Dorgan and Myers made remarkable one-hand catches, and the general play of these two men was brilliant throughout the game. Attendance 2,458. The following was the score: Now York 0 0 0 10 4 o—s Philadelphia 0 0 2 0 0 0 o—2 Earned runs, New York 2; two-base hits, Myers, Connor, Koofo; passed balls, Clements 1, Deasloy 3, Ewinsr 1; wild pitches, Keefe 2; first bastion bills, Philadelphia i.

Chicago, Sept. 25.—About 1,000 people witnessed the defeat to-day of the Buffalos by the home nine. The Buffalos were first to bat, and wore retired in striking order, Chicago following suit. In the second in ning Auson went to first on balls, stole sec ond and third, and scored on Richardson's fumble of Williamson's hit. In the third inning Flint hit safe, reached sec ond on Dalrymple's sacrifice hit, and scored on Gore's hit to left field. Dtlrymple scored on Gore's hit also. In the sixth inning, after two men were out, Pfeffer made a home run on a long center field fly. In the eighth inning Dalrymple scored an earned run on a base hit and hits by Gore and Kelly, and Gore also scored an earned run. The features of the game were a long one handed catch by Ciowly and a brilliant running catch by Liilie. The following is the score: Chicago 0 1300010 2—6 Buffalo ..0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 o—o Earned runs, Chicago 4; home runs, Pf»ffer; ppssed balls, Flint 1; wild pitches, Couway 2; first baso on bulls, Chicago 2; first base on errors, Buffalo 2; struck out, Clarkson 13.

After the fifth inning the champions seemed to lose heart and played without life, while in the eighth, after "they were out. Stout muffed on an easy thrown ball and thereafter Eadbourn simply laid the ball on the bat, that error and three singles yielding two runs. Poorinan and Johnston did some brilliant work in the out fiold. Attendance 1,823. The following is the score: Boston 2 0 0 0 12 0 3 o—7 Providence 1 0 0 0 10 0 0 0—20—2 Earned runs, Boston 1.

AT ST. LOUIS. St. Louis, Sept. s.—The finest game of bill played here this season was that between the Detroit and Maroons to-day, and it was witnessed by only a handful of people. Kirby, the young local pitcher of the home team, was very effective, as was Baldwin, who pitched for the visitors. The contest was one series of brilliant plays, and many an apparent base hit was changed into a put-out by phenomenal fieldins. Hanlon, by two wonderful catches of hits from Lewis' bat, one in the ninth inning and one in the twelfth, twice saved the game for his side. In the thirteenth inning Hanlon hit a bounder which Dunlap could have got, but Kirby made a safe hit of it by tipping it and chang ing its course. Hanlon stole second, Thompson drove a hot bounder to McKinnon, which he failed to field, the ball bounding out of his hands. Hanlon scored before Dunlap could get the ball to Sutcliffe, and Thompson reached second on the throw home. A hit to center by Bald win sent Thompson across the plate. Dun lap, Glasscock, Caskins, McGuire and Sut cliff fielded most admirably. It required thirteen innings to decide the contest.

St. Louis, Mo., Sept. 4.—News reached here to-day of a killing which occurred last week in Verdigris Bottom, in Cherokee nation. Dick Sutherland and Jake Bums had a quarrel Friday over some corn. Sutherland said he would settle it the next day. He met Burns the next morning driving along the road and told him he had come to settle the difficulty of the day before. Burns got off his wagon and Sutherland fired at him with a shotgun, putting eighteen buckshot into him, and as Burns climbed into the wagon fired a second time, killing him instantly. Both were white men. No arrests have as yet been made. Serious Accident. Special to the Globe.

Dakota, Montana, New Mexico and "Wash ington Territories To Be Admitted as States. Chicago and New York Houses Defraud ing the Eevenues by Undervaluing Goods From Abroad. An Army of Office-seekers Awaiting tno President, Who Will Give Them Little Time. Yankee Republicans Talk About Cleveland und His Policy—General Capital Gossip. Territories Knocking. Special to the Globe. "Washington, Sept. s.—lt looks very much now as though the next congress would listen to loud knocks for admission that are being heard from several territories. Heretofore there has been hesitation on the put of Democrats in agreeing to any plan for admission of any territory because nearly every or of them applying had undoubted Republican majorities. Now, however, thay are changed. The newly appointed governor of New Mexico has promised to bring that territory in as a Democratic state, and as Washington Territory and Montana have each Democratic representa tions in the house, it is reasonable to sup pose the chances are in favor of them send ing Democratic senators and representa tives in c.'.se of admission. The recent census of Dakota shows that it is useless to hold out much longer against her demands for admission, and tiiat thftro are now two probably Democratic territories knocking to come in at the same tims that Republican Dakota waits to. It is probable that they may be able to make themselves heard. Bills, it is said, will be introduced at the coming session of congress for the admis sion of these territories as states. Custom House Frauds* Special to the Globe. Washington, Sept. 5. —When a dele gation of New York merchants called upon President Cleveland relative to the appoint ment of a collector cf customs for the port of New York he talked to them plainly about the practice of undervaluation, which hhs grown to such enormous proportions that scarcely 5 per cent, of invoice from Europe is properly valued by the importer. Since that time consuls in England have complained to the treasury department of a practice which prevails by which some of the best known houses in Chicago, New York, Boston and other large commer cial cities defraud the revenue and prevent honest dealers from entering the field in competition with them. Under a ruling of Solicitor Eisley in 18GC a number of these firms have been allowed to purchase goods in all the manufacturing towns of England and Scotland, and to ship them to Manchester, Liverpool or Lon don, where the invoice was certified by the consul. Of course this official could not properly comply with the lavT, because he could not keep posted as to the values in every town in the United Kingdom. It will readily be seen that in this practice merchants who have privi leges, under Solicitor Kisley's ruling, can easily defraud the customs collectors. Es pecially is this true when the importer does an immense business. It i 3 openly charged that one of the best known CHICAGO DRY GOODS HOUSES purchases large quantities of woolens, loiit goods, lisle thread garments and similar wares in Bradford, Leeds, Dunfermline and Glasgow at the same figures that a smaller house could buy the same goods for. They are shipped to one of the seaports—usually Manchester or Liverpool—and the in voice is made out from there. The goods are valued at from ten to thirty and forty per cent, below the actual price paid. Of course under these circumstances, it is impossible for a small importer in Buffalo or any other interior town to coinpets with Chicago or New York firms. The complaint of consuls above quoted is said to have been corr-ctly discussed in the cabinet. Whether thi3 is true or not, it is known that the government has decided to take radical steps toward abating the abuse. Consuls at principal points in the United Kingdom will bo instructed that after the 18th of October, they must certify to only such invoices as are actually pur chased in their districts. Any viclation of this order will lead to dismissal at once. The proposed courso of the government in this respect will certainly result in a decided falling oil in the number of undervaluations, and it will doubtless lead to the breaking up of the monopoly which a few rich and un scrupulous firms have heretofore enjoyed in the matter of importing foreign textile fabrics. Little Time for Spoilsmen, Special to the Globe. Washington, Sept. s.—Secretary Mann ing returned to the city last evening. It is expected that the president will get hero on Monday. There is great anxiety manifested among office-seekers now flocking back to Washington to ascertain what time the president intends to devote to political call ers after his return. Rumors have been circulated to the effect that the president think that six months was about as much time as he could sacrifice to the spoils-seekers and that ho will hereafter have to reduce the time devoted to such callers to very small limits. One report is that he will devote only Tuesday in each week to place hunters. Another is that he will only spare one hour a day. Still another that he will decline to talk to the same man twice on the same subject. Any of these rules would carry confusion into the hungry ranks. The men who have come to Washington after places wanted to see the president early and often and think their success depends upon their interviews. New England Republicans. Boston, Mass., Sept 5. —The first meet ing of the Essex club took place this even ing. Senator Hoar, ex-Gov. Long, Hon. A. W. Beard, Theodore C. Bates and Hon. G. B. Loring were the prominent guests. The speeches were upon political issues, Senator Hoar taking substantially the same position as that enunciated by Senator Sherman in Ohio. Ex-Gov. Long, speak ing of President Cleveland, said he thought the president had certainly done 6ome good things and he preferred him to any other candidate. He agreed with Senator Dawes regarding the position taken by the presi dent as to the leases of Indian lands, but thought the president had a fussy notion of vindicating the faith of civil service reform. Capt. Howgato Found. Special to the Globe. Washington, Sept. s.—Capt.Howgate, the long absent signal officer, has again been heard from, after all that has been said about his movements in the United States, in Canada and in South America since his departure. It is now claimed that the missing captain has spent most of his timo with relatives in England. A gentleman claims to have met Capt. Howgate during a recent sojourn in the British isles, to have found him a confirmed invalid walking on crutches, but living in comfort surrounded by relatives and in correspond ence with friends. This gentleman also states that Howgate was in correspondence with Prof. Vennor previous to his death, and is now negotiating with bis executors and others with a view to establishing a system of weather predictions for Canada and for South America, to be operated partly in conjunction with service in the United States. This gentleman believes that Howgate has by this time probably started for this continent in pursuance of this scheme.
