King Alfonso will be Over
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,
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
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.
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.
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.
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
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
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
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
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
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.

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
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. Seward and Sumner, Cjiase and
Fessenden, Douglass and Stephens. Lee
and Breckenridge, these are historic, not
living, names. Alone of the author of the
"Boy.; born when ttra war broke out have
be. ;i voting for three years past. Boys
born alter the war will vote next year.
Boys too young to bear arms are now ma
ture men of thirty-five. There is a new
South and a new North. A new genera
tion lull oi new life is at work. A very
large proportion of the people of the South
have never seen a slave and have lived un
der no other regime but that ol universal
suffrage, is it not time for the Shermans
and the Forakers to accept the results of
tlie war and no lunger to continue in bat
tles? Eigiit million bales of cot
ton the product of this year
is in sight. There are no idlers in theSouih.
Why croak in the North while white men
and black men are side by side working.
The South is starting new industries, weav
ing eottoii cloth, digging eaal and iron, and
forging steel. God and nature, religion and
the human heart are the forces against
which Sherman and Foraker contend. Let
us then banish unmanly fears of Southern
wrong-doings and cease to exaggerate oc
casional personal conflicts into wars of
races. Danville and Copiah are worn out.
Turn out some new story, oh. grinders of

has had office six months. Congress has
not yet been In session, yet much has been
accomplished. 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.

St. Louis, Sept. 5. —Inquiry at the office

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.,

IWcCa£frey Gets Home.
Pittsburg, Pa., Sept. s.—Dominick
McCaffrey arrived iv the city to-day fiom
Cincinnati. lie was acnompanied by his
trainer, Alfred liiint, and his manager,
Billy O"Brien. The plucky young Pitts
burg pugilist was looking splendid and was
in good spirits. "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
Base Ball.
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

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:

Umpire, Gaffney.
Boston, Sept. s.—The Boston-Provi
dence game to-day was not very interesting.
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:

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.

Settled With, a Shotgun.
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

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
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
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
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.
