— IX — DAILY AND SUNDAY GLOBE INSURE ATTENTION. THE GLOBE GOES EVERYWHERE. VOL XIII. HUMPHREY IS VEXED. Priends of Senatorial Candi dates Making His Life a Eurden. The Governor Listens With Impatience to Arguments of Orators. Simpson, Hudson and Perkins Believed to Be Leading in the Fight. £11 the Practical Politicians Are Opposing Ingalls in Revenge. Topeka, Kan., Dec. 28.— Delegates are arriving daily to urge the claims, of the different candidates for appointment to succeed the late Senator Plumb. Gov. Humphrey has been importuned and harassed so persistently that he is about losing patience. This is indicated by a remark made in response to a ques tion as to hen he will appoint a sena tor. He said: 'T want it understood that lam the one who will name the United States senator. Ido not think 1 can make the appointment before the end of the week. I shall attend to the regular business of my office and con sider the claims of the various candi dates as 1 reach them." The fight so far is between Simpson, Hudson and Perkins. bat it is difficult to tell who has the best of it, as Gov. Humphrey is dumb as an oyster. The claims of J. W. Adv. United States dis trict attorney for the district of Kan sas, were first presented to the governor today. Ex-Congressman S. it. Peters, of Newton, Kan., backed by the entire Seventh congressional district, made the presentation. lie occupied the gov ernor's time from 2 o'clock till 3 o'clock In the afternoon. Perkins* Friends Alert. Ex-Congressman Perkins was not on the governor's list of candidates, but a delegation which is working in the ex congressman's interest stole a march on the other candidates, and secured a sec ond hearing. The delegation is from Humphrey's district, and had simply, called to pay respects to .the governor. They were ten in number, and after they got into the governor's room they took it by storm and the governor with It. State Senator Kirkpatrick made the nominating speech, and was followed by Judge J. W. -West, of Bourbon county, and J. B. Scgler, of Independ ence. The governor had announced that only official oflice hours would be used in hearing the claims of the candidates, and when 4 o'clock arrived he shut up shop and went home. lie will he ready for business again tomorrow morning at 10 o'clock. Among the candidates for the appoint ment, ex-Senator Ingalls enjoys the distinction of being "the only one who bas no lieutenants on the ground work ing for him. In fact, he is not even an avowed, candidate, His friends, how ever, say he would accept the appoint ment if it were tendered him, but he will not go into the scramble for the honor with the common herd. Politician-, "Aiiiii*" Ins-all-*. The ox-senator has nearly all the ••practical" politicians against him. They urge that after his defeat a year ego* he refused to lend them his valu able aid in reclaiming the state from the Farmers' Alliance, They contrast his course with that of Senator Plumb. who, although there; was nothing :in it for him personally, went into the campaign with at ..id) loyalty, vigor and en thusiasm as if it was a campaign for national instead of simply county of fices. Senator Ingalls, they say, on theother band, withdrew into his tent and sulked there, refusing to make a single cam paign speech, and leaving the state to lecture in the East. But the ex-senator is not without backing. All the work that is being done in his interest, how ever, is unsolicited, aud has the merit of spontaneity. He is unanimously Indorsed by the people of his own town, Atchison, has an enthusiastic following from the C- A. P.. and is the idol of the young Re publicans of the state. Ile is also in a position to be settled upon as a compro mise candidate. He is making no fight, and therefore no enemies, His ability the whole state reeoirnizes, and it is agreed that the state needs an expe rienced man, particularly when the in experience of the new Kansas senator is taken into account. Another candidate dropped out of the race today. He is ex-Gov. Crawford, who is in Washington. He telegraphed the governor that he was not a candi date, and unreel the appointment of alaj. J. K. Hudson. DESCHANEL'S DESIGNS. The French Economist Explains His Mission. New Yoke, Dec. 2S.— M. Paul Des chanel, the distinguished member of the French chamber of deputies who comes to America charged with a special mis t-ion by his government, arrived in New York yesterday on board La Cham pagne. He proposes to spend several months iv the United States traveling through various states, studying the ereat socialistic and labor question of the day. He comes with let ters of introduction to prominent men all over the country, who will assist him in his task. Asked If he believed that the civilized world was on the eve ©f a great social upheaval, he said: "I do not doubt at all that the civilized world is rapidly approaching, if it has not already reached, a period which will give birth to such a crisis as was the French revolution, or, perhaps, to even a greater crisis. It is because we un derstand the gravity of the situation that such men as myself arc making our strongest efforts to understand the rights and the wrongs of the laboring classes with a view to giving then at least a measuie of what is their cine." "Have you any sympathy with the extreme ideas of those who advocate a distribution of wealth and apportion ment of land." "Oh, dear," exclaimed M. Deschanel, **1 hope you do not take me for a socialist. The utmost 1 would advocate would be certain modifications in the laws of succession, and a few measures of that moderate nature. Foremost among these 1 would place certain measures relating to arbitration between capital and labor. The United States has much to teach us regarding that happy solution of all sorts of labor complications." "What detailed plans have you for Improving the condition of laboring classes in France." "Ah," answered M. Deschanel, smiling, "you must not ask me that. lam in America not to teach, hut to learn in all that regard s organized labor, and the rights and In terests of labor as against capital. When &*^ -^ r^ * I got ready to make my report to my government I ahull have much to say as the result of observation and acquaint ance with ths United States. At pres ent 1 am few hours off the steamer ana am disposed to listen to American labor reformers than talk myself. M. Des sehanel reads but does not speak En glish. IIE-JIRICK STILL FREE. Ills Father Fears the Careless Brakeman "Will Suicide. York. Dec. 2S.— Mr. Herrick. father of the brakemau whose alleged carelessness caused the wreck Christ mas eve on the Now York Central near Hastings by which twelve pfople lost their lives, was seen this morning, and said in substance that Saturday he re ceived a letter from his son and came at once to this city. Here he met the young man, supplied him with money and saw him leave the city. His son. he said, could not understand how he neglected his duty: he was confused. After the accident he went up the road and met Charles Ray, the brakenian of the train that ran into the "Gibraltar.' Kay, who was on' his way to flag the next train, first told him of the acci dent and ran on .flown the track. Her rick followed him slowly. The father seems to think that his son will commit suicide. * From those who were in the caboose it was learned that upon hearing that seveial persons were killed, young Her rick lost his head and raved wildly. After a time he quieted down and. stripping off his coat, threw it down and put on a pea jacket which he carried. He sat in the corner for a time and then said abruptly: "This ends my railroad ing; I guess I'll skip." With that he disappeared. The New York police seem to think that Herrick is not far from this city and do not credit the sui cide theory. Merrick's father got him to make A statement on paper and bade him good-bye, "telling him he did not want to hear from him unless he was seriously 111, because he would be ques tioned continually about him. lie told him to write no "letters, nor would he, the father, write to him. The state ment which has been sent to Supt. Mc- Coy is as follows: Dear Sir: 1 would say, in reference to the accident north ot* Hastings Christmas eve, that when our train slowed up. but while yet moving, I dropped , off and placed two tor pedoes on tbe rails' and then rati back to the train, which was still moving; but as it slowed up more I took my lights and started down the track to stop the Croton local, then nearly due.. When half way down I placed one torpedo on the rail ana then waited on down, to the station, thinking It better to notify the engineer there than to stop him again before he was fairly under way. - When I got to the station I placed my lignts on the platform, the red light showing south, and then stepped into the station and inquired of tbe agent how the local was. He said he did not know, and I sat down and re mained there frdm three to five minutes, when I heard the train coming and started for the door, believing it to be the local. But as soon as I saw the train I know it was the express. I grabbed my light and tried to at tract the engineer's attention, but it was 100 late. >•■..*". I followed up* ' the tract*, hoping that the train I had left twenty minutes before had pulled out of the 'tray. I soon saw a man coming back with a red light. Soon as I got to him I asked what had happened, and be said they bad struck < something but did not know what it was. I went on further and met another man and asked if any one was hurt, nnd he sold all in tbe sleeper were killed. I did hot 'deem it prudent forme to go to the wreck, bo turned about and came to New York. I fully realize the awful posi tion I am placed in,' and can only say I felt too sure the train to come first was the local. Albert Derrick. , , ■» — APPLAUDED CORBETT. Men and Women Give Him a. Great Reception. NewYoek, Dec. 23.— James J. Cor bett, tbe champion boxer of California, met with a remarkable reception tonight when be appeared to spar in the "After Dark" show. The spectators, men and women alike, seemed to feel that they should show their kindly feelings for the Cali forn'tan as against Mitchell, the Eng lishman, and they cheered and clapped at Corbett for a minute before they got through. During the rounds, when Corbett displayed some of his cleverest points, the house applauded time and time again. This afternoon the Olimpic Club of Orleans sent a telegram to the Illus trated News office offerinc an opening, without mentioning terms, though of fering protection to Mitchell, for Cor bett to meet Slavin down there in the event of an -interruption in this city by the-, police authorities of the Corbett-Mitchell bout. When this was told to Corbett, the Callfornian said he would be willing to sign articles with both Slavin and'- Jackson, with the un derstanding that he was to fight the winner. He had no use for losers, lie said, and until Slavin beat Jackson he would not talk to the Australian. He would fight Charley Mitchell anywhere, uuder auy conditions. FOUGHT FOR A GIRL. Terrible Battle Between Two Boys in Their Teens. Columbus, 0., Dec. Gallipolis, 0., is very much excited over a fearful tragedy that occurred this afternoon. Harry Bayes and John Eadds, neither out of his teens, quarreled over a girl to whom tbe former had presented a ring and the latter was wearing it. In the scuffle Bayes drew a knife and slashed Eadds about the limbs and body. Eadds used a hammer with tell ing effect upon his adversary's head. The knife proved too much for Eadds and .he fell fainting. A physician pronounced, his wounds mortal and he will hardly survive. Bayes escaped across the river, but offi cers captured him after dark aud he is in jail. It Is feared his skull is frac tured, and he is iv a serious condition. Boy Burglars Pinched. Wichita. Kan., Dec. 2S.— Bert and Charles Brown, Harvey Bierson and Harry Johnson, who burglarized a jew elry and hardware store at Greenwich last Wednesday, were arrested here this morning with part of their plunder in their possession.

Minister Montt Realizes the Need of Extreme Caution at This Stage, But His Countrymen Said to Be Wofully Ignorant of Their Danger. Wild Rumors Worked Into Thrilling Reports of Com ing Battle. Wasiiixoton, Dec. 28. — Secretary Tracy's office presented a busy scene this morning. Within an hour he saw Senator Allison, of the senate commit tee on appropriations; Senator Came ron, chairman of the committee on naval affairs; Senator Butler.of the same com mittee: Senators Frye and Hale, Chief Constructor Wilson, Chief Engineer Melville, Capt. Phillips, who Is to com mand the new cruiser New York; Com mander Chadwick, and lastly Charles Cramp, the shipbuilder. Notwithstanding this sign of official activity and the reports thatare printed of unusual work at the navy yards, the officials of the navy department deny there is the least speck of a war cloud on the horizon. Assistant Secretary Soley says that he has already expressed his views as to the navy yard work. When asked where the San Francisco is bound, he declined to give a definite answer, but when he was reminded that the last time she went out for -"gun practice" as reported by the department, she had next been heard of at Valparaiso, he said that the vessel had no orders for Chili. Unanimous In Denial. A naval officer who should know, when asked If the cruiser was bound for Acapulco, replied that she would not go as far south as Mexico. He also stated that the Baltimore was now prob ably north of Panama on her way to San Francisco. Commodore Folger, chief of the ordnance bureau, added to ; the general denials by saying that there was no unusual activity at the naval gun factory. Mr. Cramp also insisted that his force was not working faster or - longer than usual. At tho department of state matters ! moved along in the usual fashion, and there was not a trace of warlike excite ment. The officials say that nothing has been heard from Minister Egan since the 23d iust. Why iie did not at tend President Montt's inauguration Saturday they did not know, and doubt ed the correctness of the report to that effect. At the war department, neither Act ing Secretary Grant nor Maj. Gen. Scho field, who would certainly be in position to know, had ony information of an in tention to appoint Gen. Miles to com mand the army in the event of war with Chili. In fact, the only sigu of war like preparation visible at the executive departments consisted in an order is sued Saturday for the immediate prep aration of the new twelve-inch gun, just completed at the navy yard here, for transportation to California, together with 4,000 pounds of prismatic powder and 11,000 six-inch shells. Montt Is Anxious. Senor Montt. the Chilian minister, called at the department of state at noon. He was immediately shown into Secretary Blame's private office and had an interview with the secretary for half an hour. It was impossible to get more than a hint of what passed between the secretary and the minister during the interview, but that is probably sufficient to warrant the supposition that matters are not proceeding in a manner as satis factory to the government of the United States as could be desired. Notwithstanding the fact that Secre tary Blame is now dealing almost en tirely directly with the Chilian minister, instead of with his government through the intervention of Minister Egan, it does not appear that the result has been a saving of time, and there is reason to suspect that the secretary is charing at the delay he eucouuters in securing a final response to the representations made by this government concerning the attack on the Baltimore's men. During the afternoon Representatives Lodge and Boutelle called at the navy department. They are both Republican members of the house committee on na val affairs, the chairman of which, Rep resentative Herbert, is absent from the city. Unless the house of representa tives recurs to The Old Randall Rules. the naval committee will retain in its charge all matters relating to appropria tions for the naval service, while in the senate the concurrent action of the com tee on appropriations and the committee on naval affairs is usually necessary to secure provision for auy naval expendi tures. Secretary Tracy has been in comma nicatlon with members of each of those committees duriug the day, but with what purpose is not definitely known. An officer of the department, speaking of the consultation, said: "It means just this: That we are abiding by George Washington's maxim— in time of peace prepare for war. We do not believe there will be war, but if the administra tion failed to exercise all of Its power in the matter of preparation, it would be open to severe criticism if hostilities actually ensue." News reached the navy department this atfernoon that the cruiser San Francisco had arrived at San Diego, Cal.. aud was at anchor in the harbor. It was rumored that she would await the Charleston at that place and trans fer to the latter vessel certain muni tion ns of war which she carried from Sau Francisco. An officer of the state department said tonight tiiat so far as he was aware nothing had been received from Minis ter Egan since the inauguration of President Montt. The Chilian minister also yet remains officially unadvised of anything pertaining to the inauguration. Secretary Tracy said tonight that the United States steamer San Francisco, which arrived at San Diego, Cal., was there for the purpose of engaging in tar get practice. He said further, that no other orders had been issued to her com mander. READY FOR BUSINESS. Admiral Brown's Craft Equipped for Three Years. San Diego, Oal., Dec. 28.— The United States steamship San Francisco, which left San Francisco Saturday, ar rived here this morning and entered port. The trip was made direct without stopping at Monterey as expected. Rear Admiral Brown said: "I shall stay here in San Diego harbor until the secretary of the navy orders us away. We are ready to sail on three hours' notice, but may remain three weeks. All depends on our orders from Washington. The ship is equipped for a three years' cruise and we have 100 rounds of ammunition for each gun. Besides this, we have 300 or 400 for other ships." . "What other ships?" was askod. "Well, we may meet some other ships that will want some ammunition," was the only auswer. \* •— -*"•-' It is inferred that the Charleston, now oil her way from Honolulu to Acapulco, is to meet'the San Francisco here and to take on extra ammunition. The Bal timore is also coming north from Chilian waters, and may want ammunition. While the officers refuse to state future plans, it is easy to learn that the vessel is ready for an emergency. The cruiser made the run of GOO miles from San Francisco in thirty-six hours. HERE'S WAR, SURE. A Correspondent Plans a Cam paign on Broad Lines. New Tone, Dec. 28.— Washing ton correspondent of^tlie New York Herald telegraphs that paper as follows: "I have obtained the most valuable in formation that has yet been made public regarding the Chilian affair. There is no question but that the administration fully expects a refusal of Chili to com ply with the demands for an apology and indemnity, and has decided to ask congress for power to declare war, for which preparations have been and are still being made. Chill, feeling that she is right, is determined not to apologize, even at the cannon's mouth. Such is the situation upon the diplomatic chess board. Chili has not yet asked for arbitration, but it is known to the cabinot aim to your correspondent that she is likely to do so. Minister Montt, the Chilian min ister here, has a!) along seriously doubted the Intention of this govern-, ment to declare war in the event of Chill's refusal to accede to our demands. Today, however, he realized his mis take, and the result was that he cabled to President Montt that the situation here was very serious; that this govern meant fight, and that the navy was rap idly being placed on a war footing. This In itself is startling news, and there is more of the same sort. Not only has the navy been made available in the event of hostilities, but great activity has taken place In the army, and both departments are now ready to act in concert at a moment's notice. I havo it that Admiral Gher ardi will be placed In command of naval forces. It is also pretty definitely set tled that Gen. Miles will have command of the land forces. Pians have already been made to move 10,000 troops. The men have been selected, the transports provided, and all Is ready to place this force on Chilian soil very soon after war is formally de clared. It is proposed to take these troops from the regular cervice. The Western forts which they will leave will be garrisoned by militia, volunteer frontiersmen and regulars from New York and other i cities where troops are not needed. The troops will leave . the United States from several different points. Some will embark at San Fran cisco, others at Galveston, New Orleans, Key West and other Southern ports. Of course, a proposition to arbitrate would seriously interfere with all this. Minister Montt, who is an exceedingly cautious man, and who knows the diffi culties of advising the home govern ment when It is not believed there that this government means war, has at last suggested to President Montt the pro priety and the advisability of asking this government to lay the facts in con nection with the Baltimore case before a board of arbitration. There is con siderable doubt as to just how Ibis sug gestion would be received. Chill's Insane Illusions. To give Chill* a thorough whipping unless she promptly apologizes for the murder of American sailors In the streets of Valparaiso is still tho disposi tion of the administration. The dispo sition has not changed since the presi dent first received news of tne outrage, and learned of the seeming indifference of the provisional government of Chili to its atrocious character. The president within a fewdays has assured gentlemen who have talked with him that he meant to firmly maintain the dignity of our government, and to in sist upon an apology and reparation. Not a line has come from Mr. Egan which indicates a more courteous spirit on the part of Chill than she showed at the beginning. The dispatches which have come within the last few days have indicated a very ugly feeling on the part of the people of Chili against the United States, and the men who talked loudest seem to be accepted ad visers of the new government. The newspaper press ot Chili is also filled with bombastic threats tending to ex cite the people against the Americans, and giving no hint of any disposition to atone for the high-handed murder which sent the American sailors to their graves. If Chili intends to assume a more pacific tone she has to give the first sign of any such purpose. "WAITING FOR ARMOR. Coast Defense Vessels Need Only Their Metal Covering. San Francisco, Dec. 28.— Henry T. Scott, of the Union Iron works, said to day that no instructions to hasten work on the coast defense vessel Monterey had been received, although dispatches from Washington indicated such in structions might be given owing to the present Chilian situation. The vessel could be ready for service in short order if the government would only send on needed armor plates. Everything was ready for these plates as iong ago as last April, but still they have not come. The plates are being made East, most of them at Bethlehem, Pa. Work on them had been rushed along lately and advices to the Union Iron works* from there state that last week ballistic . test armor was shipped to the government proving yard at Annapolis. This news comes not from government officials, but from the makers of plates. When the tests at the proving yard will be fin ished, and when the long-delayed armor will likely reach here, the builders of the Monterey have no knowledge. The baltastic test is understood to be one of the best tests to which armor plating has to be submitted. This steel armor plating will form a belt all around the vessel. It varies from thirteen to sixteen inches in thickness, and some pieces will weigh fully thirty tons. The Monitor Momadnock. at Mare Island, has been waiting for armor plating, something similar, for a lone time. The Monterey was launched April 28 last. The engines and other mechanism are all about in place, aud only the fitting of the armor and its adjuncts remains to be done before the craft can have her trial trip. It is figured that it will take about two months at the present rate of progress to get the armor on. Murdered In Prison. Kansas City, Mo., Dec.

These men bad had trouble this fall over the grain crop. Christmas night they called at Kuntz' house and demanded some beer, and upon being refused, began pounding him with brass knuckles.

Hopkinsxille, Ky., Dec. 28.— Quite a sensation was created upon the streets of this city today when it became known that Charles Burrus, son of W. E. Burrus, a prominent farmer, residing near Pembroke, in this county, had voluntarily came for ward and surrendered himself to the officers of the law as the slayer of Bodie Burrus. his cousin and brother-in-law, who was found murdered at Pembroke last Thursday night. The killing and the mystery surrounding it created a great sensation, second only to that produced by the confession of C. H. Burt us today. . C. 11. Burrus had his examining trial before County Judge Morrow, who, after hearing the evidence, held Burrus in a bond of $2,500 for the action of the grand jury at the March terra of the circuit court. Bond was promptly given and young Burrus set at liberty. t . The evidence produced at the examin ing trial went to show that the killing was to a great extent justified. His sister Annie went to Paducah, eight months ago, on a visit to relatives and was returning home when her brother in-law, Bodie Burrus, met her at Nor ton vi lie, took her Into a private room, gave her drugged wine and then accomplished her ruin. Fear kept her quiet until her condition forced her, a week ago, to confess the truth. Her brother Henry swore to avenge her wiones, and meeting Bodie Burrus Thursday night, shot him. A pistol was found on the body of the dead man, who had been the cause ot endless fam ily trouble. V"; "MADDENED BY A JILT. A Negro Kills a Woman and Him self. , Dcs Moixes, 10..

Natchez, MiS3.,Dec.2B.— From Black water, La., the place where T. J. Hart was murdered Christmas evening, comes the news that the uncle of the murderer was hanged last night by the searching party.

Alabamans Determined to Kill All Sims' Gang. Mobile. Ala., Dec. 23.— Terrible scenes are being enacted in Choctaw county. The citizens are wrought up to such a pieth of excitement that a war of extermination is being waged against the Simsites. According to the last re ports received, the crowd was in full pursuit of a negro who is reported to have taken part in the McMillan massa cre of Dec. 23. When caught, ho will be strung up.

By a technical blunder no end of confusion is threatened to iicense applicants and license judges throughout the state. . On June 19, 1891, the legislature passed an act intending to amend the Brooks law, to allow saloonkeepers to have bondsmen from any part of the county, instead of ward or township. The amendment was to the act ap proved May 24, ISS7, whereas the Brooks law was approved May 13, 1987. The act amended was one providing for wholesale liquor licenses, and as a re sult the judges can refuse all license applicants because they do not conform to the law. To prevents serious com plications it will be necessary to have the license judges of each county give a decision on the question before the ap plications are presented to them. ONE MORE CRANK.
