NEW YORK, May 24.— Reports re
ceived in this city today from London
announce the consolidation of the
Cramp Ship building company, of Phil
adelphia, and Vickers & Maxim, of
Barrow-on-Furness, England, in one
great ship building concern.
This alliance, if perfected, and there

will make one of the most powerful
corporations of its kind on either con

an increase in the capacity of the

Cured by Lydia E. Pinkham's
I cannot speak too highly of Mrs.
Pinkham's Medicine, for it has done so
much for me. I have been a great suf
ferer from Kidney trouble, pains in
muscles, joints, back and shoulders;
feet would swell. I also had womb
troubles and leucorrhoea. After using
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com
pound, and Blood Purifier and Liver
Pills, I felt like a- new woman. My
kidneys are now in perfect condition,
and all my other troubles are cured.—
Mrs. Maggie Potts, 324 Kauffman St.,
My system was entirely run down,
.nd I suffered with terrible backache
in the small of my back and could
hardly stand upright. I was more
tired in the morning than on retiring
at night. I had no appetite. Since
taking Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound, I have gained fifteen pounds,
and I look better than I ever looked
before. I shall recommend it to all
my friends, as it certainly is a wonder
ful medicine.— Mrs. E. F. Morton, 1043
Hopkins St., Cincinnati, Ohio.
Before taking Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound, I had suffered
many years with kidney trouble. The
pains in my back and shoulders were
terrible. My menstruation became ir
regular, and I was troubled with leu
corrhoea. I was growing very weak. I
had been to many physicians but re
ceived no benefit. I began the use of
Mrs. Pinkham's medicine, and the first
bottle relieved the pain in my back
and regulated the menses. It is the
best kind of medicine that I have ever
taken, for it relieved the pain so quickly
and cured the disease. — Mrs. Lillian
____n, Box 77, St. Andrews Bay, Fla
$5,000,000 to $10,000,000, if not more. The
additional capital is to be furnished by
the Vickers in return for stock in the
enlarged corporation. Holders of com
mon stock in the existing corporation
will receive new stock.
The preliminaries to the deal were
arranged by William M. Ivlns, of this
city, who is a passenger on the White
Star liner Teutonic, due here tomorrow.
It is expected that a meeting of the
directors of the Cramp company will
be held in Philadelphia on Thursday,
when the details of the alliance will be
submitted for adoption.
The matter has been under consider

READY MONEY NEEDED
MISTAKES IN THE WAR REVENUE
BIL.I, WILL, NOT PRODUCE IT
Senate Urged to Avoid the Enact
ment of a Law Thut Will Involve
the Business Interests of the
Country in Litigation Issue of
Legal Tender Note. Antagonized
by Senator Lindsay.
WASHINGTON, May 24.— The feature of
the war revenue measure placing a tax cf i
ore-quarter of 1 per cent on the gross re
ceipts of corporations was under discussion
in the senate throughout the day's session.
Incidentally the proposed tax on bank, de
posits was adverted to.
The rrineiral speeches wero delivered by
Mr. Piatt (Rep., Conn.), and Mr. Lindsay
(Dem., Ky.), both of whom vigorously at
tacked the corporation tax. The wo'ght of I
the former's argument was thrown against
the tax on the ground that it was unconst;- j
tutional because the tax was not levied alike
upon all persons engaged ln particular lines \
of business. He maintained lhat an occupa- j
tion tax could be levied, provided the con- j
ditions were fair and equitable, but t_tt
the business of a corporation could not bs
taxed, simly because it was conducted by a '
corporation. To be equitable the tax must i
be laid upon Ihe business, whether it was I
conducted by a corporation, a partnership, a j
firm or an individual.
Mr. Lindsay vigorously antagonized the
proposed Issue of legal tender notes, declar
ing that It accentuated the existing menace
to the gold reserve of the treasury, and was,
besides, the dearest money ever devis_. He |
held that such an issue would be a blow to i
the nationa's financial credit. He, too, pre- i
sented an argument against the proposed
corporation tax, maintaining that, if enact
ed into a law, it would bring about law
suits instead of providing what the govern
ment needed— ready money with which to con
duct the war operations. Tomorrow the sen
ate will resume the discussion of the pend- I
ing measure an hour earlier than usual, the
session beginning at 11 o'clock.

Story of the Skirmish Off Santiago
KEY WEST, May 24 (11:50 p. m.).—
The United States auxiliary tug Warn- j
patucket brought in today a story of
a sharp skirmish off Santiago de Cuta '
last Wednesday, j
The tug, with the United States aux-
EUary cruiser St. Louis, went into the
Santiago channel to cut the cable.
While the vessels were engaged in |
the work they were fired on by the j
The St. Louis returned the flre and |
a lively fusillade ensued for about half
The Wampatueket eventually suc
ceeded ln cutting the cable.
None of the Spanish shots reached
either boat, while neither of them, in
turn, boasts of having inflicted any
damage upon the enemy.
From Santiago the two ships proceed
ed to Guantanamo, the Wampa
tueket going in within 400 yards from
the shore to cut the shore line, there,
the St. Louis lying out of range.
The shore batteries again opened flre
and the St. Louis signaled the tug to
come out, which she did, without hav
ing cut the cable at that point. This
adventure was equally harmless.
Accounts of it reached here today In
a grossly exaggerated form, including
a report that the cruiser and the little
tug had silenced tbe Spanish batter
ies on shore.

here March 29, after a two days' ses
sion, v/ill be continued tomorrow morn
ing at 10 o'clock.
W. A. Day, of Washington, D. C,
counsel for the Interstate commerce
commission, arrived here yesterday
morning from Chicago. . He is regis
tered at the Ryan hotel.
As was the ease at the former sit
ting, there will be three members of
the commission in attendance, but this
number constitutes a quorum. The com
missioners will arrive here from Chi
cago this morning, and have engaged
rooms at the Ryan. They are Judge
Judson C. Clements, of Georgia; J. D.
Yeomans, of lowa, and W. J. Calhoun,
Chairman M. I. Knapp, of New York,
and Charles E. Prouty, of Vermont,
will not be present. Other duties pre
vented their attending the former ses
sion, and, as they are not conversant
with the situation, they will take care
of the affairs of the commission at
The commission is here for the pur
pose of getting at the true facts con
cerning the methods used by the local
roads in handling flour from Minneap
olis and common points to New York.
Since January, 1897, the flour rates
have been in a bad condition, fluctuat
ing as much as $30 a car in a month.
Hearing of this, the commission deter
mined to find out why such a state of
affairs should exist in the Northwest,
and instructed United States Marshal
O'Conner to serve subpoenas on the
different local railroads. The act of
congress relative to the interstate com
merce commDss'ion charges that body
with the duty of being informed as to
how the roads handle their shipments.
Marshal O'Connor served summons
on the following roads: Great North- |
crn, Eastern Railway of Minnesota, i
Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul, Chi- j
cago, Burlington & Northern, Chicago
Oreat Western, Minneapolis _ St.
Louis, St. Paul & Duluth, Chicago, St.
Paul, Minneapolis & Omaha, Soo line,
Wisconsin Central, Flint & Pere Mar
quette, Duluth, South Shore & Atlan
The following milling firms were sub
poenaed: Washburn, Crosby & Co.,
PUlsbury mills, Consolidated mills, Im- !
perial and Mankato mills, the two lat
ter being at Duluth.
The papers, in the cases of the roads,
requested that the general freight !
agents and auditors be present.
The examination brought to light
some interesting evidence. The ship- ;
ping clerks of the different flou:ing |
concerns occupied the stand almost all I
of the three days, while some leading j
traffic officials were examined the rest
of the time.
The representative of the Duluth, i
South Shore & Atlantic road, when j
hard pressed by Counsel Day, adrnittea
having paid rebates on shipments of
Bour out of Duluth in connection with I
the Michigan Central and the Grand
Rapids _ Indiana. Testimony giver. ]
by the general freight agents and audi- !
tors of these roads brought out the I
fact that the rebates were paid by the
auditor of the South Shore & Atlantic, j
He did the collecting from the road and j
handed the money over to the millers, j
being a sort of a clearing house.
The commissioners claim that the
evidence given by the shipping clerk
for the Washburn-Crosby company
showed that the company had been re
ceiving large rebates right along.
The list of witnesses include J. S.
Bell, president; I. L. Course, E. M.

The three commissioners who arrive
here today are all men of prominence
and have occupied public positions for
some time. Judge Clements, tempor
ary chairman of the commission, was
appointed on the commission by Presi
dent Harrison. He served in the War
of the Rebellion on the Confederate
side, and afterwards studied law. He
i .presented Georgia in congress for
over eight years, and is an able, con
scientious man. His close application
to the recent hearing here made him as
important a factor in the investigation
as Counsel Day himself. The judge
frequently took the witnesses in hand
and brought out some evidence of great
value to the commission.
Commissioner Yeomans was appoint
ed by President Cleveland, and was
formerly a state senator in lowa, He
owns a large stock farm in the state
of lowa, and was once a railroad man,
being superintendent of a road in New
Commissioner Calhoun was selected
to his present position by President Mc-
Kinley, and Is a warm personal friend
of the present chief executive. He was
the president's personal representative
in Cuba last year, where he made a
careful Investigation of the affairs on
the island for McKlnley's information.
He formerly studied law, and ls a
counselor of wide knowledge.
Mr. Day does not hold a public office,
being _mply appointed to take charge
of special cases where there are no
complainants to supply an attorney.
Marshal O'Connor was unable before
the former session to serve ali the war
rents he held, as a number of flour and
traffic men found It convenient to keep
out of town. _, is said that some of
these have not yet returned.
Since the last Investigation a sum
mons has been served on Charles A.

had been sworn out for as many women of
this class and they began arriving at the
station shortly alter 8 o'clock. The warrants
charged the women either with keeping a dis
orderly house or with • having violated ordi

any one to entice another from the street.

Matter of the Construction of Snell-
Ing Avenue Bridge.
The council committee on streets held a
short meeting yesterday afternoon and de
cided to recommend to the council that City
Engineer Rundlett be given full power ln
the conetructlng of the Snelllng avenue bridge
by the Great Northern Railway company.
Mr. Rundlett submitted a communication to
the committee. In which he stated that the
Great Northern desired to transfer a section
of the Lafayette avenue bridge to Snelllng
avenue, but that this wcul. not be satisfactory
to him. as the specifications for the Snel'.ing
avenue bridge call for a fifty-five fcot roadway
and eight-foot sidewalks, while the section
of the Lafayette bridge has a roadway only
thirty feet wide.
Road Engineer Munster was before the com
mittee and stated that the transfer of the sec
tion would be wholly unsatisfactory unless the
roadway could be widened. The committee
decided that City Eng'neer Rundlett should
have full power in the matter lf possible.

In Which He Set Forth the Clinr

Chareh— Courage and Patience
Needed by Young; Rectors.
At the Churcb of St. John the Evan
gelist yesterday morning two clergyman
were advanced to the priesthood in' the
Rev. I_wis G. Morris, assistant pas
tor of the Church of St. John, and Rev.
Owen F. Jones, of Le Sueur, Minn.,
were the two candidates to whom
Bishop Gilbert delivered the address of
instruction prior to the ordination.
The following were the visiting clergy
who assisted Bishop Gilbert in the
service: Rev. Dudley W. Rhodes, Rev.
E. Dray, Rev. Charles Holmes, Rev.
G. H. Mueller, Rev. G. H. Ten Broeck,
Rev. Carl Taylor, of St. Paul, and Rev.
H. P. Nichols, Rev. F. T. Webb, Rev.
S. B. Purvis and Rev. Mr. Alexander,
Tihe service commenced at 11 o'clock.
A surpliced choir of twenty-five voices
led a procession of clergy and the
bishop. A single hymn and the usual
prayer service for the occasion prefaced I
the sermon by the bishop.
The sermon was not long, but the
bishop was singularly simple in his re
marks. He had just returned from one
of his long trips among the parishes of
the state. The trip was among some of
tlie poorer parishes, and the weight of
the struggles borne by some of the
young rectors impressed the bishop
deeply. Hence his charge to the can
didates was full of hints as to what
they would be confronted with, and the
necessity of a limitless courage and pa
The bishop did not think there was
any service in the prayer book so help
ful as that for the ordination of priests.
It was a personal appeal and a power
ful presentation of the doctrines.
It was a striking characteristic of
the Episcopal church that, instead of
set and arbitrary dogmas for the mem
bers, there was great room left for
free individual interpretation of dog
mas. There were, however, certain
principles and rubrics of the church
which were declaratory and positive,
and nothing so weakened the position
of the churchman as the taking of
these rubrics as voluntary. The bish
op had no sympathy with any church
whidh tried to work out its own line
without considering the good of the
whole. There was a kind of Protest
antism which was nothing more nor
less than individualism run wild.
Against this the bishop protested.
There were, perhaps, some of the thir
ty-nine articles, the bishop said, which,
if now opened for revision, would very
likely be revised, and, perhaps, prop
erly so. The bisihop thought that the
Episcopal church had shown great
wisdom in not making positive and
Turning to the two candidates the
bishop addressed them personally. He
said a priest was a man under author
ity. The bishops, he declared, had less
liberty than even the priests, and the
latter should not become restive. A
priest could not impress his congrega
tion with the duty of lowliness and
obedience unless he himself showed the
same spirit. The priest should stand
as the representative of something
greater than he himself was. Self
should be subordinated. A priest should
bear himself as if he was honored by
being made the chosen representative
of the church and faith, whether in
a colossal cathedral or a humble pr.l
-rie church". When a priest assumed the
bearing of a man of the world, he lost
the representative character for which
his calling intended him.
Following his personal remarks to
the candidates, the deacons presented
the two young men and testified to
having examined them and found them
ready for the work. Then followed the
Episcopal ceremony of accepting and
investing the priests. After this com
munion was administered to the new
rectors, and in turn to the bishop,
clergy and congregation.
During the services the choir sang
McFarron's beautiful "O, Holy Gho.t."
Movement to Organize Companies
ln the Twin Cities.
Attorney F. L. McGhee ie Interested in a
movement for tlie organization of a company
of colored volunteers .in St. Pau\ He rec:i_d
a letter from J. Frank Wheaton, of Minne
paolls, yesterday, who wrote that he had
official assurance that ln case of anc .her cell
the colored men would be given a c ranee to
go to the front and that too with colored men
as the commissioned officers.
When the first call for troops w_ issued,
Mr. McGhee said, there were a number of
colored men who wanted to enlist, but were
not allowed to do so, as it was said they
did not want any mixed companies. Now, how
ever, there may be another chance, and the
negroes of Minnesota are anxious for a chance
to show they are ready and willing to fight
for their country as well as the whito popula
tion. A prominent colored man, who was
down from Duluth yesterday, said there were
probably enough men there to raise one com
Mr. McGhee says If there are not enough in
St. Paul they can join with the Minneapolis
organization to be formed. A meeting will
be held ln St. Paul ln a day or two to talk
the matter over.
In Minneapolis the meeting was held last
night in response to the call of J. Frank
Wheaton. J. G. Sterrett presided and Wm.
M. Smith was made secretary of the meeting.
Addresses were made by Col. McCord, J.
Frank Wheaton, Sergeant Harper, formarly in
the regular army; John Olleson, J. Robinson,
John Allison and W. M. Smith. It was the
general expression of about seventy-five
colored men present that if they are allowed
to be officered by their own men thoy will
volunteer. On these terms they think they
can do something to prove the loyalty, valor
and equal worth of the colored man, with the
effect of lessening race prejudice.
There were enlisted fifty-four men, on con
dition that the company elect its own officers
and be assigned to a colored regiment having
its own officers. It ls expected that drill will
begin at once at the armory, under the direc
tion of Sergeant Harper. Those signing the
roster of the first colored company of Minne
sota at the meeting last evening are: Albert

LIBERATION OF MANKIND.
Rev. A. J. D. Hnnpt Says It Will Re
sult From This War.
Rev. Alexander J. D. Haupt, pastor of the
Memorial English Evangelical Lutheran
church, delivered a patriotic lecture on "The
Great Wars of the United States" at the
church, on West Sixth street, near Ex
change, last evening.
Mr. Haupt first spoke of Old Glory, and
said that although It had often been snatch
ed from tho standard bearer and dragged in
the dust, by the foe, that it always led to
victory mr the end, and by so doing advanced
the cause of humanity so many steps higher
ln the plane of civilization.
The speaker said that it appeared strongly
to him as lf the life of this country had
been divinely planned. From the discovery
of America by Columbus, events had led to
the existence of a great nation, a grand lana
of liberty and freedom. The rush of the
powers, after the discovery of this continent,
to acquire territory ln the new world set
tled the land quickly and produced a ming.
ling of blood which Inflamed and fostered
the spirit of liberty. The Germans in West
Virginia, the Bwedes on the Delaware, the
Dutch ln New Netherland, the French In the
Southern colonies all mingled with the
English of the New England coast and Vlr-
ginia, helping to lay the foundation of this
Mr. Haupt spoke of the petty wars, of the
Indian conflicts, and of the Revolutionary
war, the first great war or this country as a
nation. He then recited the thrilling speech
of Patrick Henry.
"Is the emblem of our country, the glor
ious flag of freedom a prophetical e_b!em,"
asked the speaker. "There were first thir
teen stripes and thirteen stars; the stars
have grown into a constellation of consider
able magnitude. The stripes of blood red
__?**_? _. ltn tne stripes of white make me
ask, do the red stripes indicate the periods
of war this country will go through, and the
wWte stripes the periods of peaco?''
The sneaker elc.ed by saying that the
Spanish war meant the further liberation of
"Is it not astonishing," he asked, "that in
the year 1898, in all the advancement of civ
ilization such a condition of affairs still ex
ists under our very noses which existed a
hundred years ago?"
