. CORPORAL. TANNER'S SUCCESSOR.
Washington, Oct. 19. The president
to-day appointed General Green B. Raum,
of Illinois, commissioner of pensions.
He was sworn in at noon. The appoint
ment, though a surprise, is generally fav
orably commented on. He is a promi
nent member ot the Grand Army of the
Republic.
General Raum appeared at the pension
office this morning, and, after taking the
oath of office was presented to the chief
of divisions, and other officers. He wil
enter upon bis official duties Monday.

sioner of internal revenue, was born in

sion he resigned on the 6th of May fol
lowing. tanner's statement.
Washington, Oct. 20- Ex-Commis
sioner Tanner is out to night in a long
statement, replying to Secretary Noble's
letter of July 24, the gist of which was
given in these dispatches Friday night.
Tanner denies at the outset that he defied
the secretary on the subject of rerating,
or his authority in the administration of
the bureau. He gives out for publication
the letter o which Secretary Noble's re
ply was made. In it Tanner says, in part:
I do not- propose in any event to have
an honorable lite-time smirched in the
slightest degree at this period of my ex
istence, and where I may find well found
ed reasons for believing that I have been
imposed upon and mislead, I shall be
quick to recommend the condemnation
merited by the parties concerned. 1 de
sire to add, furthermore that I have made
a comparison of the action in these cases
(meaning the case? of the pension omce
employes) with that taken by my prede
cessor in similar caes and find the com
parison is entirely favorable to the pre
sent administration.
tacoma's turbulent times.
Tacoma, Oct. 19. At the city council
meeting to night a license was granted
for a saloon on Tacoma avenue, against
the protest ot 7000 citizens. The room
was crowded. The vote stood a tie, and
the mayor voted for the license. A
stormy scene ensued, is which the action
of the mayor was characterized as shame
ful.
Lillis offered a resolution requiring the
consent of all the freeholders in the block
before a license could be granted, which
was carried amid applause. The mayor
called order, and said that if the noises
were repeated be would have the police
drag out the offenders.
Ubiman said he would go with them.
It was generally believed that the mayor
would nrt favor the saloons in the
residence district, and bis course was a
disappointment to many of his friends.
ARBITRATION BY PISTOL.
Seattle, Wn., Oct. 20. A deputy
sheiifi returned from Snohomish to day
with J. F. Stewart, who tried to kill Mike
Day at Woodinville yesterday morning.
Stewart says that the row arose over a
debt of $17.50 which Day owed bim.
Tbey got into a row about it and Day
badly beat Stewart. Then the latter
went and washed the blood from his face
and got a pistol, and coming back again,
demanded the money. Another row
ensued and Stewart gulled the pistol
and shot at Day. ' The latter turned and
ran, and Stewart followed him with
spveral unvalling shots. Afterwards Day
got a Winchester and came back and paid
btewart $13.50 ot his bill, blewart then
went to Snohomish, where he was arrest
ed. He came here to-day with ample
sureties from Snohonish friends and was
released.
A LONG TRIP.
Victoria, B. C , Oct. 20. The steamer
Elder arrived this morning , five days
overdue from Alaska, with 500 passen
gers, returning canners and miners, and
28,000 cases of salmon. - The delay was
carsed by the enforced calling at all can -neries
to clean out the season's work.
TANNER IS SATISFIED.
Washington, Oct. 20. General Raum,
the newly appointed pension commis
sioner, is considered better equipped in
every way for the position than any of
his predecessors. General Raum is a
popular, though not a boasting Grand
Army man, and he is a splendid lawyer,
familiar not only with the laws, but the
rules and practices of the pension office.
He has no hobbies and no prejudices.
Jx Commissioner Tanner said, as soon
as he heard ot the appointment, "It is the
best selection that could have been made.
General Raum was a gallant soldier and
a good man and a fine lawyer, with
liberal views on the subject of pensions,
and I am satisfied he will do all he can
for pensioners.
FOOTPADS AT PORT TOWN8END.
Port rowNSKND, Oct. 20. James W.
Stockand, a merchant, was waylaid late
last night by footpads while returning
home, and, in the attempt to rob him,
Stockand was severely beaten and bruised.
His cries brought assistance and fright
ened the robbers away. Later two men
giving the names of Jim Smith and Lud
wig Lunwen, claiming residence in Taco
ma, were arrested and identified as Stock
and's assailants. Tramps aud thugs are
coming down the Sound from Seattle and
Tacoma in large numbers. Many have
been run out of town already.
BOY DROWNED.
Joseph Lovely, 6 year, old son of Hen
ry Lovely, carpenter, accidentally fell off
the wbart and was drowned. The boy
was missed iast night, and diligent search
was made throughout the night. The
body was found floating in the bay this
morning.
TANNER A BACK NUMBER.
Washington, Oct, 21. General Gren
B. Raum this morning sat in the chair
lately occupied by Corporal Tanner at
the pension office. He received a num
ber of fric-ods who called to pay their re
spects, and made a tour of the different
divisions to see the methods of procedure
employed in each.
Secretary Noble says he is not worried
by the publication of ex-Commissioner
Tanner's last letter. He will make no
reply to it. "I have done with Tanner,"
he said to-day. "He is a back number
with me. All that be publishes I have
seen before and I think it doesn't need
any. reply. It he wants to make me a
target, be can do so. Let him fire away
all he wants to."

An effort was made to save the rest of the

DOLPH'S COAST DEFENSE BILL.
Washington, Oct 21 Senator Dolpb,
of Oregon, intends to reintroduce his
coast defense bill, ar d thinks it will at
this session bring about some sort of leg
islation for the defense of tbe Pacific
coast. "We mast adopt a general plan
for defending onr coasts," said Senator
Dolpb, "and I think congress is now
ready for it. Both the interstate com
merce and tbe civil service laws will be
amended, but neither will be repealed,
benator lilair will bring forward bis edu
cationai bill again, but one cannot fore
ten the action in the house. We must
carry out our pledges and revise tl
tariff."
