CHANDLER TO TELL
WILL. EXPOSE CIVIL. SERVICE
ABIDES IX NEW HAMPSHIRE
IF OTHERS WILL NOT
BIG SEJSITM PROMISED
SENATOR SAYS THE LAW WAS IN
FRACTED, AND THAT HE OP
POSED SUCH ACTION

HE GIVES FAIR WARNING
Gives a Hintory of His Connection
With the State Committee, and
Announces That Unle«» Federal
Officials "Who Were Called Upon
to Contribute Come to the Front
With the Story He Will Talk.
CONCORD, N. H., July 11.—A big politi
cal sensation is promised here. Repre
sentatives of the United States Civil Serv
ice bureau began a sitting today for the
purpose of investigating charges preferred
against Senator Jacob H. Gallinger, of
Concord, by former Republican Gov.
Charles L. Busiel, of Laconia, alleging
violation of the civil service laws dur
ing the last campaign in this state. The
specific charge is that Senator Gallinger,
as chairman of the Republican state com
mittee, distributed circulars appealing to
Republican office-holders for contributions
to the campaign funds.
Civil Service Commissioner J. V. Nar
low and Mark S. Brewer, who arrived
here from Washington last night, are in
charge of the investigation. Senator Wil
liam E. Chandler was among those pres
ent, Uc a party interested, though whether
»s a prosecutor or defendant is somewhat
Uncertain in view of the charges and
Dounter-charges made.
As the commissioners have not au
thority to summon witnesses they could
do no more than request the presence of
those whom they desired to testify. The
only witnesses at hand when the ses
sion opened were Postmaster Knox, of
Manchester; National Bank Examiner
Carroll, of Warner, and T. Gilliford, who
ssistant secretary of the Republican
state committee during the campaign.
This investigation is held to allow the
commissioners to examine the evidence,
and to decide whether it warrants the
further prosecution of the case. If they
decide it does the United States authori
ties of the department or Jusice will be
culled in.
The principal feature of the session was
a long statement by Senator Chandler,
previous tv which, however, Col. Rufus
Baker Howell, collector of customs at
Portsmouth, stated that ho had received
a circular letter from William F. Thayer,
treasurer of the Republican state com
mittee, asking for a contribution to carry
on the committee's work.
Ossian D. Knox, postmaster of Ports
mouth, also testified, but said he saw no
such circular, and had not been asked
to contribute to the 189S campaign.
Senator Chandler then came forward
with Ills statement, which he preceded
with a short history of his connection
with political committees. Ho said he
retired from the national Republican com
mit tec in l.ss-i. and from the state com
mittee in 1890. Senator Chandler cont
inued as follows:
SENATOR CHANDLER'S CHARGES.
"I vaid to Senator Gallinger in 1895, and
again in 1898, thai he ought to leave the
state committee for violations of the civil
6< [vice law, but he would not go. In 189S,
much to my surprise, he toofc the chair
manship of the state committee. After I
had recovered from my surprise I went
to him to endeavor to co-operate in the
work of the campaign. He talked over
the means of raising money, both agree
ing that very little would be needed. We
spoke of individual and of nominees for
state offices, but nothing was said of fed
oral officeholders. This was on Oct. 10.
Between that time and Oct. 17 I heard
that an assessment circular had been sent
to federal officeholders. Gov. Busiel ask
ed me if I kenw of this assessment. He
said that ho had reason to believe that
a circular for an assessment had been
sent to officeholders, and he produced a
circular which had been sent to state of
ficers, and said that some of them had
In « n sent to federal officeholders. We had
a long conference, the result of which was
that he said he would complain to the
civil s< rvice commission unless some oth
er way could be found to prevent these
officers from being assessed. Accordingly
Gov. Busiel, with my knowledge, asked
the commission about the terms of the
law. He came to me later and said that
he had determined to make a complaint.
In tiiis I concurred and the letter of Oct.
24 was prepared, containing the names of
those to whom it was believed the circu
lar had been sent. I 31d not go to the
committee again during the campaign.
My business during the campaign was all
done with the committee by correspond
ence. I wrote to the committee from.
"Washington, and this is substantially all
I wish to say. If I find federal officehold
ers who have been required by the com
mission to come here do not come, or if
they come and do not testify, I shall tell
thecommission all I know about the mat
ter."
At the conclusion of Senator Chandler's
statement, he exchanged some warm
words with Senator Gallinger on his
(Chan.dler-s) contribution to party funds
In 1894 and 1890.
James O. Lyford, naval officer at the
port of Boston, was the last witness, and
testified to receiving the circular from
Treasurer Thayer. He also stated that
the assessment circular was sent to fed
eral office holders in 1896.
POPULISM DEAD.
So Says Scnatotr Mcßridc of the
Is.sne in Oreeon.
NEW YORK, July 11.—George W. Me-
Bride, United States senator from Ore
gon, on Monday left the Post Graduate
hospital, where he had been for five
weeks recovering from the effects of a
painful and delicate operation.
"Populism Is dead in Oregon," he said,
"and is rapidly dying oujt in other parts
of the West. You can say that Oregon
can safely be counted In the Republican
column for some time to come, at least.
The Populists gave us a hard tussle in
]SS6,but we beat them then, and have been
gaininng ground evw istnee. All my in
formation from my state Is that the rank
and file of the Democratic party is almost
unanimous for the nomination of William
Jennings Bryan. In my opinion there
is little or no doubt of his nomina
tion."

Leiington.
LEXINGTON, Ky., July 11.—The candi
dates are all here for the Republican
state convention tomorrow. They open
ed their respective headquarters today
to meet the early arrivals of delegates.
So far as the governorship is concerned
there is no contest, as Attorney General
W. S. Taylor has more votes pledged
than are necessary to nominate. Col.
Stone and Judge Pratt are still working,
but confess that they are in the minority.
They are now working with a view to
defeating Taylor, rather than with any
expectation for themselves.
The Republican state central committee
met tonight. Congressman Vincent
Boreing, of London, Ky., was selected aa
temporary chairman of the convention,
and K. J. Hampton, of Winchester, ai
secretary. Both are strong Taylor
men. It is understood that Judge Den
ny, of Lexington, another Taylor man,
will be permanent chairman.

DISORDERLY SCENES.
Sensational Attack I'iioii Detroit's
Street Railway Ordinance.
DETROIT, Mich., July 11.—Municipal
ownership of Detroit street railways took
a fresh start tonight, in spite of the re
cent adverse decision of the Michigan su
preme court annulling the appointment of
the street railway commissioners and in
spite of various other kinds of opposi
tion.
A special session of the council began
at 3 o'clock, the object of the majority
being to pass the ordinance and receive
the mayor's veto at tonight's regular
weekly meeting. The special session
continued so long, however, that it was
merged into the regular session.
After several hours of filibustering and
debate, Aid. Beamer, president of the
council, made a sensational attack on
the ordinance and its promoter. Charges
that several of the aldermen had been
improperly influenced by the street rail
way people were freely made by Presi
dent Beamer. So broad were his hints
that one, a German, threatened to fight.
Finally the chair declared the meeting
was in session, and after a short recess
the ordinance was passed.
PRICES ADVANCED.
Drill and Seeder Implements to Coat
. Farmer More.
CHICAGO, July Manufacturers of
drill and seeder implements met here to*
day and decided to make an advance of
15 per cent on the prices of seeders and
drills. This action was taken, it is said,
on account of the large advance that has
been made in iron and steel.
S. 8.. Davis, of Minneapolis, presided.
J. A. Craig, of Janesville, Wis., was sec
retary. ;

Grave One la Presented in Hawaii

United States—Work of the Peace
Congress Indorsed—National Ed
ucational Association Gets to
Work in City of Los Angreles.
LOS ANGELES, Cal., July 11.—This aft
ernoon the National Educational associa
tion was called to order by Hon. F.
Q. Storey, of the local executive commit
tee. The pavilion was crowded In every
part, and numbers of the visitors failed
to gain admittance. After Invocation by
Rev. C. Clark Pierce, the woman's orches
tra rendered the N. E. A. march, a rather
unique piece of music, composed for the
occasion, and Gov. Henry T. Gage was
presented and bade the delegates a hearty,,
■welcome in behalf of the state.
Hon. L. Kirk, state superintendent of
public instruction, in behalf of the educa
tional Interests of the state, followed. He
told of the growth of secondary and high
er education in the state. Including col
leges located in San Francisco, the state
university now has a total enrollment
of 243. In ISB9 there were but sixty-two
high schools in the state, but today there
are 126, and with Increasing numbers the
standard of work has been raised.
Dr. Elmer Brown, of the University of
California, on behalf of the management,
also welcomed the visiting educators, and
then Mayor Fred Eato*., on behalf of the
municipality, in a few words told the
visitors they had the freedom of the
city during their stay.
On behalf of the city schools Superin
tendent Forshay outlined the educational
system here, and paid tribute to the
teachers in charge of the 28,000 children.
Responses to the welcoming addresses
were made by N. C. Dougherty, superin
tendent of schools of Peoria, Ill.j Dr.
Emerson E. White, of Columbus, 0., and
J. H. Philipps, superintendent of schools
of Birmingham, Ala.
GROWTH OF ASSOCIATION.
After the orchestra had played Mozart's
overture, to "Don Juan" President Ellp
halett Oram Lyle, of Mlllerville, Pa,, de
livered his address. Dr. Lyle, In opening,
referred to the first meeting of the as
sociation in Philadelphia, when thirty
eight men were enrolled, and compared it
with the enrollment of more than 10,000
in Washington last year. He also spoke
of the progress made in other respects.
The National Educational association, he
pointed out, is an organization that
through the educators of the country, can
reach largo bodies of teachers. Referring
to the late war he said:
Our history has demonstrated that we
have no need of a great standing army.
It has demonstrated that In every state
may be found an army ready at a mo
ment's notice to defend our flag against
every foe. And this army is not marshal
ed by military chieftains, but by educa
tional chieftains A strong nation is
made not by barracks for troops but by
school houses for children; not by re
cnnting officers, but by schoolmasters:
not by rilled cannon and Mauser bullets
and war vessels but by books, and news
papers and churches. That nation is
strong- whose citizens obey the law with
out seeing a standing army behind the
jaw. That nation is strcngest whose
laws are based on civil law. and whose
citizens obey both divine and human laws
because they are right."
There was more music by the band
and then the session of the convention
was at an end.
EVENING SESSION.
This evening's session was as largely
attended as had been the one in the
afternoon. In addition to the woman's
orchestra the Aeolian club, under the
direction of Mrs. G. B. Parsons, superin
tendent of music in the public schools,
ended the proceedings by rendering sev
eral selections.
Dr. W. T. Harris, United States com
missioner of education, delivered a most
appropriate and decidedly interesting ad
dress on "An Educational Policy for Our
New Possessions."
Henry S. Townsend, inspector general
of schools of Hawaii, made a thought
fully conceived address on the subject,
"The Educational Problem in Hawaii."
"The Environment and the Temper of
the Children of Hawaii," said Dr. Town
send, "are especially diversified. This
is due largely to the diversity of races,,
with all that it implies. The ends of the
earth meet in Hawaii, and no one race
is predominant in numbers. Present in
dications are that the generation next to
be born in Hawaii will consist of white
persons and Hawaiians, In almost equal
numbers, of a large number of Asiatics.
These latter will not be assimilated with
the elements of our future population
find so from one people, though it is pos
sible that the whites and the Hawaiians
will thus unite in spite of radical racial
difference. The problem involves at
least two races of men in nearly equal
numbers living side by side within our
narrow boundaries without uniting. Our
Hawaiian civilization should be based
upon broad charity and universal good
will."
NATIONAL COUNCIL.
At the closing session of the national
council of education, held this morningl.

"I have noticed the publications in re

ask you if a deposiUon from me will be
given consideration as lam well ac
auainted with Gates and know that he
was alive in August, 1894, and living in
Arizona under the name of George Morse.
If you will write to Monahan & Murphy,

denies, that he is the man wanted.

Creditors Secured ' Judgments
Against Him In Muatiachußetts,
and Mr. Crosby Filed Bankruptcy-
Petitloln In New York.
NEW YORK, July 11.—Albert L. Crosby,
of Brewster, Mass., formerly prominent
and rich, owning the Crosby opera house
and McAvoy Brewing company, was ex
amined In bankruptcy proceedings here
today. In his petition he described his
assets as consisting of a few old clothes.
He lives in a handsome home on Cape
Cod. Mrs. Crosby testified today that she
owns the estate at Brewster, has 1160,000
cash in the bank, mortgages for $160,000
more, real estate valued at $50,000, and
furniture and paintings valued at $12,000,
besides her claim for $50,000 against Mr.
Crosby for advances made by her to him
from time to time. Mr. Crosby said he
had owned nothing since 1875, when he
gave his all to his wife. Since then he has
lived by borrowing from her. They usually
spend the winters abroad, and the sum
mers at Brewster.
The examination was conducted before
Referee Crane. Julius Lehman is trustee
for the alleged bankrupt's property, and
creditors were represented by Judge Wln
field, of Logansport, who Is a state sena
tor, and by Edgar "Fellows, of this city.
Mr. Crosby was on the bond of David
I. Oage, city treasurer of Chicago,who de
faulted in a very large sum. By buying
timber land and making barrels in In
diana, Mr. Crosby contracted debts of
$30,000 in that state. Judgments were ob
tained against him in Indiana, and the
city of Chicago also got judgment for
$500,000. It was found he had no assets.
On examination today he said that he
was very fond of his Becond wife, and
very grateful to her for saving many of
his most valuable paintings at the time
of me fire. Therefore he gave her h:s
property. Real estate, railway and brew- *;
ing stocks were all turned over to her.
He retained only his position as vice pres
ident of the McAvoy Brewing -company,
and in that capacity, as an employe of
a corporation in which he had no interest,
drew a salary of $1,000 a month, and
traveled in Europe. He and his wife re
mained abroad several year*, and were
lost sight of. .
Four years ago Judge Wlnfield, while
spending a summer on Cape Cod, was
taken to Brewster to see some of the
show places there. Among others was the
Crosby art gallery. The name of Crosby
is common there, and did not attract hia
attention, but the chief picture in the
gallery, Biersladt's "In the Yosemlte," is
not common. Judge Wlnfield had seen It
often in Chicago. Being the lawyer of
the Jerelome estate, one of the largest
Crosby creditors, Judge Winfleld imme
diately began suit In Massachusetts, and
secured judgment there against Crosby,
which the supreme court of the state has
recently affirmed. Mr. Crosby then cama
to this city and, claiming residence here,
filed a petition in bankruptcy.
