A Fake About Sully.
New York, Oct. 4. "To Our Hero, the
Only John L.," was the flattering legend on
a tremendously large horseshoe which
stood on one side of the stage of the Colum
bus theatre in Harlem last night. Before
the curtain went up on the first act of "The
Man from Boston" a still more flattering
legend stood in the vestibule of the house.
It was, Standing Room Only." The house

! guilty of treason and should be tried on
I that charge. To use a colloquial expression,
they 'turned me down.' -j

I judgment should be visited with the most
j serious penalty, death. The statutes, how
ever, l oeueve limit rue punisumeni to
lobbies. Sullivan and his play were re
ceived with the wildest demonstrations of
affection and approbation. Defeat seems
to have endeared the late champion to his
admirers and he must have felt proud over
the welcome given him on his first appear
ance and for the applause given him so un
stintedly throughout the play.
The Fz-Champion Improving.
. It must be admitted that he has made
great strides in his new profession. Consid
ering his educational advantages, or rather
disadvantages, and tbe lateness in life
when he began to play, he does remarka
bly well. He has a fat part in "The Man
from Boston," and he not only reads his (
lines intelligently, but uses considerable ef- j
feet as welL He did not miss a point, and
lie has learned to elicit proper applause j
when he does make one. I

The Man From Boston" is const ructed ,
to please "popular" audiences, and judg
ing by the favor met last night it admir- J
ably effects its purpose. It has a fairly
clear plot and plenty of romance and fun t
in it and any quantity of athletic sports
and sporting references, plenty of singing,
plenty of good dancing. The company
,su Importing Sullivan is an adequate one
and he should make a good deal of money

Homesteader in Hiding.
PlTTsm-RG, Oct. 4. David I .ynch. another
of the strikers who has leen dilligently
sought for for a mouth on charges of murder.
t riot, conspiracy and treason, was arrested
I yesterday and lodged in jail. The search for
i the remaining twenty-eight Homesteaders
, who are accused of treason continues, but
, no others have been captured and the po
lice are inclined to think that they have
, left this part of the coumry. Friends of
the accused, however, say they will sur
render when their lawvers advise them to.
CUT THE FIREMAN IN TWO.
CORBETT MAKES HIS DEBUT,
And Shows Signs of Reeoming Something
of an Aetor.
James J. Corbett, champion of America,
began his career as a dramatic star at Eliz
abeth, X. J., last night. The play in which
he made his debut was a five-act comedy
drama by Charles T. Vincent, entitled
"Gentleman Jack." The Temple opera
house was packed to the doors by the "lKn
ton" of the town, and the champion received
a rousing reception. As an actor Corbett
is, considering his antecedents, a fair suc
cess and a credit to his tutor.
A Play of Literary Merit.
The champion spoke his Hues and made
his entrances and exits like an old timer,
and, with more coaching and experience,
will be able to act well enough to satisfy
his patrons. Unlike most pieces written
for pugilists the play of "Gentleman Jack"
was not written around the champion, but
is of tolerable plot and some literary merit,
and bids fair to become a financial success.
Several Others Injnred by a Collision
the Northern Pacific.
Minneapolis. Oct. 4. A serious accident
occurred last evening ou the Northern Pa
cific road one mile west of the Xorth Town
junction. Passenger train Xo. 7 of the
Dakota express telescoped freight train
Xo. SS. The trains were loth going at a
good rate of speed when they struck, and
the result wr.r that the smoking car of the
passenger train, which was the third car
from the engine, was thrown up over the
empty cars in front. Tlie engines and
tenders were crushed and enmphtely tele
scoped and it is a marvel that the engineer
and firemen on both engines were not killed.
The Fireman's I'riichtful Death.
: As it it was. Fireman H. Buell, of the
passenger traiu.met a horrible death. The
tender of the passenger engine smashing
' throught the cab cut him in two. Passen
ger Engineer Carr escaped with a serious
injury iu the back. The cause of the acci
dent is not known. A list of the injured
is as follows: H. Watterson, Minneapolis,

I Stanley Denounces a Liheral Scheme.
Lon don, Oct. 4. Tlie f reedom of Swan

Stanley. This distinction is a recognition
' of Stanley's denunciation of any move
looking toward the abandonment of Ugan

as commercial point of view the pros

- Needham, Mass., Oct. 4. Captain Geo.
F. Whall, of this town, died Saturday
evening, aged 74. Captain Whall at the
beginning of the rebellion was employed at
the Watertown arsenal and discovered that
' some of the officers in charge and a num
' ber of the men employed did not sympa
thize with the northern cause and tam
pered with the cartridges made for the
service so that when they were received at
the front they were useless. Captain
AVhall reported the facts to Washington
and the guilty ones were removed.
Dom Pedro's Grandson Crazy.
VIENNA, Oct. 4. Prince Peter of Co
burg, grandson of Dom Pedro, late em
peror of Brazil, suddenly went crazy yes
terday. His room was on the fourth story
of the Imperial hotel. He struck down an
attendant and threw up the window pre
paratory to jumping outr His shouts at

them that he was emperor of Brazil and

damage and will be put in an asylum.

Was a New York World Roorback.
New York, Oct. 4. A special to the
World from Boston says that John L. Sul
livan has startled his friends in that city by
announcing his intention to challenge Cor
bett' to fight again. In an interview he
said: "I am saving money now with reso
lute determination to challenge Corbett to
fight again and give "me a chance to win
hack, the money that was robbed from me
in Xew Orleans. There was something
wrong. I am not making any direct
charges jnst now. but that I was not right
I well know." When Corbett was told of
this he said Sullivan had precedence of all
self. P. S. John L. has arrived here and
Bays tlie above special is a lie out of whole
cloth; he has had enough of the ring.
Whlftky Should be Cheap.
Peoria, 111., Oct. 4. The Tackamine
process of distillation which has been on
trial here for some weeks is regarded as a
success in every particular. The books of
the collector show that the yields where
that process has been on trial have aver
aged a fraction over twenty quarts to the
bushel of corn. The cost of production in
addition to the increased yield is reduced
about 40 per cent.
Republican Meeting at Chicago.
Chicago, Oct. 4. Arrangements are
making to hold a great Republican meet
ing in this city during the week of the
World's fair dedicatory exercises. Sub
scriptions to the amount of $10,000 have
been obtained, and it is the intention to
have an elaborate display and to secure a

34.23 A Patch of Ground for Settlers
Washington, Oct. 4. Tlie department
istimates of expenditures of government
for the next fiscal year ending June 30,
IWMr, under the law should have been in the
hands of the secretary of tbe treasury, who
Is charged with their transmission to con
gress, on the 1st inst., but they have not
yet made their appearance. As a matter of
fact they do not generally reach the treas
ury much lx-fore the date of meeting of
uongress. Secretary Rusk has practically
completed his estimates and they only need
s revision to make them ready for the sec
ret r.ry of the treasury. He says they do
not vary materially from the appropriatioi.s
made bv congress for the current year, a
total of about 3,000,000.
Should Give nim 50,00O,00O.
Some slight additions will be recom
mended in order to carry on the work made
necessary by t he extension of the scope and
purpose of the department. "If congress
should do what ought to be done to ad--ance
and encourage the agricultural in
terests of the country," said Secretary
Rusk, "$50,000,000 would be appropriated.
But as it is, all that vast interest, tlie
ratest in the land, has appropriated for
by the government is $3,000,000 a year.
Why, a single vessel for the navy costs
more than that, and several of them are
being built every year."
Secretary Foster's Calculations.
As to the operations of the current year,
which will include nine months of the last
year of the present administrative term,
Secretary Foster calculated that the treas
ury will show a balance of $10,000,000 on
the 30th of June, 13. The financial state
ment for September shows that the cholera
scare had not appreciably affected customs
receipts, so that in all probability the esti
mates of revenue made last year will le
fully borne out by the facts.
Wants IntercKt on the Tax.
Assistant Secretary Xettleton has re
ceived several complaints that commissions
are being deducted by state officers for
making payments from the direct tax
fund. Oue of these letters is from W. H.
Kggliorne, F.ggbomeviile, Va. Replying
to this latter, Xettleton writes: "You say
that the treasurer of your county is refund
ing only the direct tax, and is deducting
five per cent, as his commission and you
ask if you are not entitled to interest on the
direct tax lieing refunded. In reply you
are informed that only the direct tax
collected has leen returned to the states.
In states where the tax had leen collected
from individuals it should be returned in
full by the state authorities to the persons
from whom it was collected or to their
heirs or legal representatives.
And Is Likely to Want It.
"However, since the tax was paid to the
states the attorney general has rendered an
opinion to the effect that all penalty and
interest collected should also be returned
to those from whom it was collected in the
same way. The department is therefore
preparing to refund to the governors of
states the penalty and interest in the same
manner and under the same conditions that
the tax was refunded. It must le under
stood, however, that theinterest mentioned
is that which was collected with the tax
aud not interest accruing since."
