Serious Charges Against the Italian Min
ister at Washington.
Washington, June C— For several days a
report has been ciiculated here to the eflect that
Baron Fava, the Italian Minister to this
country, and the Italian Consul-General to
New- York, Mr. lllva, bad been recalled.
To-night the California Associated Tress agent
learned that this is probably correct. CelsoCtesar
Moieuo, who Is we.l known In California as an
ex-Member of the Italian Paillament and
au ex .Hawaiian Cabinet member. has
leceived Information from Italy by
a private letter and through Italian
newspapers received to-day, that the Italian
Parliament baa lor some time been consldeilng
the mailer, and finally decided to recall the
Minister ana Consul-General at New York.
Moreno preferred charges which led to their
recall. As near as possible the facts obtained
from Moreno are as follows: ln 1874 the
".".lareno" bill was passed prohibiting the
immigration of Italian pauper contract
laboret", which iMmeuo is pleased to
designate as the Italian sl.ive traffic. Huron
Fava and Consul Genera) Kiva have been
charged with violating this law by conniving
with Immigration bureaus for the importation of
Italian men, women and children laborers, But
according to Moieuo they have been guilty of
other misdemeanors.
In Italy the Government has a monopoly on
the trade In tobacco, gunpowder, salt and various
other commodities. On June "id of last year
Consul-General Itiva. with the assistance of
Baron Kava, contracted with a Kentucky
hi in for the purchase of 11.000,000 " quintals"
of tobacco for the Italian Government. An
Italian "quintal" is equal 10 100 pounds
of tobacco, mi this date tobacco was
quoted at 85 francs per quintal In
the lobacco journal of New York, but Minister
Fava and Consul-General Kiva reported to the
Italian Government that the tobacco cost 135
francs. It is charged that Fava and lllva paid
85 francs per quintal to the Kentucky him aud
appiopriated me remainder lo their individual
bank accounts.
The mailer was brought to the attention of
the Italian Government, and after full investi
gation the lecall of the diplomat and Consul was
decided upon. Cousin-General Kiva lias already
sailed for Italy, and Minister Fava will leave iv
a few weeks. Ills successor will be Marquis
Dill Uugaro. Inquiry about the matter was In
stituted by several reporter*! at the Mate Depart
ment to-day, but the otllclals theie were not
communicative aud Minister Fava declined to
see auy one.

Education the Means of Advancing the In
terests of th* Bice.
Lake Moiionk (N. V.), June C— the
opening session ot the Negro Conference,
the Executive Committee' presented a series
of resolutions urging education as the key
note of the situation— normal and
industrial. Judge Tourgee spoke on " The
Negro's View of the Pace Question." lie
presented a series of resolutions much*
more tadical than those of the committee.
Don. Andrew D. White believed in a peace
ful solution of the race problem, and re
gretted the defeat of the Blair bill. Other
addresses were made by John Glenn of
Baltimore, General Brinkerhoff of Ohio,
General 0. O. Howard of New fork, and
Edna D. Cheney of Boston.
At the closing setslou tonight a lengthy set of
resolutions Were adopted, They recite an en
couraging progress In Hie negio race, and say
no oilier race lias ever made such industrial
progiess lv twenty-tour years. Much remains
to be done, but there Is steady material and
mental Improvement iv the race, and a glow
ing tendency to sell-help on their pan
gives much hope. We believe the wel
fare of ihe country requites the negro
to live In ie;, lis of good will and mutual con*
fidence with his while neighbors, aud only on
these principles can such relations be main
tained, To this end the conference recommends:
First-Increased lacillties lor industrial train
ing, not only lv trades, but lv Improved apicul
ture, aud tor girls In household duties. We be
lieve lv education and urge all school authorities
to use industrial training, not lv order to make
the negro a mere toller, tint to make nobler man
hood and womanhood by the discipline of intelli
gent labor.
Second— family Is Cod's unit of society.
The Christian home is a great civillzer, and ulti
mately ID the homes of colored people the prob
lem ot the colored race will be solved. The girls
aud women ol lie race must di-teiiulue the char
acter ot negro homes. All Influences which tend
to purity, intelligence and beauty of 1 lie home
and the ennobling of the women of the negro
race should he systematically fosteied. We be
lieve the one-room cabin is Ihe social curse ot
the negro race, as is tlie lepee of the Indian and
the over-crowded tenement-rooms of our cities'
slums. The conference earnestly urges the up
building of wholesome, cleanly. Intelligent aud
Christian homes, and the inculcation of souud
temperance principles and practices.
As of Hie greatest Importance to the race and
to to (he upbuilding of race homes all frleuds ot
the negro iv all parts ol the laud are urged to
use every effort.
Thiid— We recognize most gratefully the noble
work for the education ot the race already done
by the people of the States Iv which live most of
our colored -citizens. But this is only a
good beginning. The school should be made
more effective and a greater number of colored
teachers must be still mure efficiently trained
at additional normal schools. Higher edu
cation must be open to the most capable
uegros, who, In their diameter of true manhood
and womanhood, are an object alike ol educa
tion, Iree government and Christian civilization,
we especially urge upon all who deal Willi tbe
negro that Ihey endeavor to promote self-reliant
morality. The credit system and lieu upon crops
have so uniformly been shown to be liai mini
that we uige their avoidance wherever possible.
Fifth— To promote those habits of thiilt and
productive economy which must underlie the
acquisition of pioprty and ownership of land,
as well as all advance In civilization, we urge the
establishment by the United States Uoverumeul
01 a postal savings system.
Sixth— For the attainment of these ends we
look to an enlightened Christian sentiment of the
people In all parts of our country— to an un self
ish service of helping the negro who helps him
self; and education lv morality. In religion, and
Hun 111 civilization and Illness for citizenship.
We fraternally invite all fellow-citizens of what
ever their couutry and their savior.

said this evening that there was no truth in
the San Diego dispatch to the effect that
the Mexican Government had requested the
United States to send soldiers to Sau Diego
to prevent any expedition against Lower
Calif nia. Senor Botnero, the Mexican
Minister, also said the dispatch was not
true, He said the Mexican Government
had not asked anything from tlie Govern
ment of the United States with regard to
the filibustering expedition, and added that
the Mexican Government had ample means
at its disposal to deal properly with any
filibusters who might invade Mexican soil.
He did not think, however, that there was
much danger of such an invasion.
Troops Ordered to the Tongue River Reserva
tion—Tiie Green Bay Outbreak.
Washington, June 6.— The Secretary of
the interior has received advices corrobor
ating the report that a white man was re

Reservation in Montana by Northern
Cheyenne Indians. The settlers are greatly
alarmed, and troops have been ordered to
the scene to restore the feeling of safety.
Eeports received about the trouble at the
Green Bay (Wisconsin) Agency state that
it is owing to the hostility of the Indians
to the newly appointed agent, Kilsey, and
their desire to retain the old agent. Secre
tary Noble has telegraphed Kilsey to take
charge ef the oflice nt once, or lie would see
that an agent was appointed who would
do so.

Views on the Outlook.
He Says the House Bill Simply Reduces

Special Dispatches to Th c Morni-sq Calx.
i, Washington, June 6.— To-morrow the Post
will contain the following: 'The action of the ,
House Republicans at then conference and de
bate in the House lias added fresh Interest to me
Silver question, and there Is considerable cun
uy on the part of the public lo learn how the com
promise measure Is tegarUed by the bimetallists.
When a Post reporter called on Air. Francis U.
Newlauds, the member of Uie National Sliver
Committee from the State of Nevada, he was
fouud In the midst of a dismantling process at bis
home, as be Is preparing to reluru to Nevada to
spend tbe summer months.
"Have the silver men given up the fight?" re
peated .Mr. Newlauds lv reply to the reporter's
question. "Not at all. We are very ninth in earnest
In this matter, and do not Intend to ruu at the first
tiro ot the gold men." ■...-.
"Then you do not regard the measure proposed
in the caucus of tho House Republicans as a sub
stantial recognition of the request of the silver
men ."'
" They are simply juggling with
In the House," said Mr. Newlauds, -and as a result
the bill apparently providing for the Increased
use of sliver, but realty demonetizing It, has been
placed before the Boos-*, and is to be rushed
through debate of auother day and a half without
I the privilege of offering any amendments, M
. "But will- be bimetallists not make an effort to
amend this bill V
*' iam unable to say that will be the action of tbe
silver men In the House. Tbe only opportunity to
test their strength will be on a motion to recomml t.
If a motion to recommit Is made so as to provide
fur free coinage and Is lust, then there can bsno
test on the bullion redemption feature. 1 think all
tbe silver men m the House should vote against the
bill. It reduces silver to a commodity and de
prives it of Its chief element of value as a money
metal '*
-" " Then you do not regard the bill as being as much
of a compromise as has been claimed for It V*
Nothing more or nothing less. Sliver bullion is lo
be used simply as a security fur the certificates
Issued upou it. tour and a half million dollars
worth purchased the first mouth can be redeemed
the next month. Should the increased purchase of
bullion go ou until *1U0. 000.000 is accumulated the
entire amount could be withdrawn at any moment.
The currency would thus be contracted to this
•amount aua a largo amount of bullion thrown on
the world. I predict that lf this b.il were to
pass the Treasury would be but a conduit through
which hngtaud would draw her silver for use m
India. Hut the geld monuinctallists, who are push
lug this measure, say this power will never be exer
cised. l>o you doubt that It' Cleveland, Manning
and Jordan were in power it would be exercised?
And luslsted upon if not to be exercised? Can
there be any doubt that It will be exercised at some
tune under some Secretary and by some system of
Jugglery. 'ihe bimetallists insist that whatever gold
or silver goes into the Treasury should come out
ouly as money either In the shape of actual com or
certificates calling for coin In the Treasury."
••Ho you think the silver men In the House will
stand together regardless of party lines ?"
" I don't know. The party whip is being applied
to tbe Republicans, although tae* caucus was de
clared to be

or the power of Committee on Rules, is under the
control or three men— Heed, Cannon and M.Kin

age can be safely entered upon, but will no: make a
fight Tor his views. Keen and Cannon are pro
nounced for the gold standard. They are responsi
ble lur tbe action of the House, and upon them will
rest either the honor or tbe odium of this measure.
1 am told that In the conference, when McKinley

"No. Does any one suppose tbe condition of
India or China would be changed if they were to
adopt the gold standard? Mr. Heed might just as
well advise us to refrain from eatluz rice, lest we
become Chinamen. 1 hope the btmetalists of the
House will act jui. their conviction, regardless of
party, and not delegate their right to thin* and vote
to a select coterie. If they have an opportunity let
them vote for free coinage, ir this Is not obtaina
ble, let them vote to strike out the bullion redemp
tion feature. It these fall, let them kill the bill, and
let the «old men In the Republican party, who are
falsely masquerading as the friends of silver, be

the Republican national platform which condemns
Cleveland for his efforts to demonetize silver, and
declares for the use of both gold aud silver as
"Are the silver men discouraged over the out
look, Mr. Newlauds ?"
"Not lv the least. They are annoyed because
there Is not Immediate action on the question,
which Involves the prosperity or the whole country,
and to the favorable solution of which the Repub
lican party Is pledged. We will win yet," said air*
•- The Senate Is overwhelmingly opposed to bullion
redemption, and there are enough Republican Sena
tors from Western States In wblcb sliver Is the all-
Important Issue to hold tbeTariif Hill up until favor
able silver legislation can be secured. If I was lv
the Senate 1 would join the Democrats in
To one side until the Kast would consent to deal
fairly with the West on a question of such vital Im
portance* 1 am tired of seeing men whose vision does
not extend west of Wall street controlling the leg
islation of the country. The Republicans of the West
have cheerfully joined the Republicans of the East
In protecting industries of the country, although
those Interests lie almost entirely east or Ohio, thus
building up and solidifying the nation. Rut the
Kast proposes to take ad the turkey, and to give tho
West the crow. The West now has a good taut
string to the turkey, and it should withhold it until
there is something more like au equal division of
beneficial legislation. These men who are continu
ally opposing Western Interests do not hesitate to
use the party
And when it is necessary they Ignore party lines.
The Western members should no longer allow them
selves to be forced into the position of hewers of
wood and drawers of water by the crack of the Re
publican lash."
"lias the National Silver Committee decided on
any action?"
"Yes, the committee has been In session and has
determined that if any hill Is passed which contains
the bullion-redemption feature a National Silver
Convention shall be called to assemble immediately
after harvest in which bimetallists generally, in
cluding labor and farming organizations, will bo in
vited to participate. 1 predict that lv such an cent
that convention will be the largest aud most earnest
ever held in the country. Ihe organization of the
National Convention recently held In St. Louis Is
complete in every State In the Union and

betray their constituents in this question, and es
pecially those Republicans Who violate their pledges
on a question which is above party and involves the
prosperity and happiness of mankind. The m in who
Totes for gold redemption votes for demonetization
of sliver and Will bave to defend himself on that
ground. The upholders of this new system of op
pression only seventeen years ago, by which the
usurers of the world sought to Increase the value of
their hoards and the burdens of all obligations by
cutting otf oue of the natural sources of money,
simply will have to meet the producers, the farmers
and the laboring men at the polls. It Is
And I therefore Issue the note of warning, of threat."
"Is there any Interest at work. Sir. Newlands, to
retain tbe bullion redemption In the bill that Is ex
pected to become a law ?"
". here must be. I regard the bill as a device of
the go.d meialllsts to divert what they call the-sil
ver craze' by a measure apparently favorable to
silver. Tbo bankers of the Kast are doubtless sup
porting it. It is strange what influence the opinions
of the bankers have on the average mau in reference
to this monetary question. As a rule the banker
knows nothing of monetary science. A good banker
should have knowledge of human nature, knowledge
of values, the caution to see that every loan Is amply
secured, and the conservatism to resist the temp
tations to risk. Most of them do not know as much
of monetary science, the relation of
To population, the effect of chauge of standard and
the results of contraction and expansion as the
average public mau. Talk with oue ot them on the
subject and he will look wise, wag his head omi
nously and will say nothing that Is worthy the name
of argument. For tlie last twelve years the banks
have been predicting disaster from the coinage of
silver, but It has not taken place. They crowded
Mr. Cleveland w.tb fears aud are doubtless lutlueu
ciug many able and well-intentioned men who think
they ought to know something on this subject.
Why, we might as well be guided by railroad presi
dents as to the control of railroads and gas and
water directors as to regulating the price of gas aud
water as by bankers In relation to monetary legisla
tion. It Is a part of their business to make money
scarce and near, so as to Increase purchasing power.
if the volume or money Is only sufficiently con
tracted the bankers will be able to own the world."
Mr. Newlands was very much In earnest Id
discussing the money question, and la referring
to that class of meu who, in order to secure pat- 1
ronage from the Administration, or favors from
the Speaker of the House, surrender their con
vicious and Imperil. i lie Interests of their con
stituents, lie used language more vigorous than
diplomatic. He also look occasion to refer In
uncomplimentary terms to those members who
dodged the vote in the House ou Thursday,
when the cKTuit was nrtde 10 teconimil the bill.
However, Mr Newlaml is very sanguine that .lie
silver men will yet succeed. -

Half a Million Solars Asked for Improving
the Fncraraento and Feather Rivers.
Washington, June Senator Hearst
was before the Commerce Committee to-day
urging an appropriation of £500,000 for the
Sacramento and Feather rivers. lie urged
that : a delay of two years in making this
appropriation would mean an additional
expense to the Government of several mill
ion dollars in improving these rivers. Sen
ator Hearst will appear before the commit
tee again to-morrow and will exert himself
to his utmost to secure needed and liberal
appropriations for these rivers. Mr. Hearst
made a splendid talk before the committee
to-day and made a favorable impression on
them. Mr. Clunie is working to the same
end, and the Kiver and Harbor Bill of the
Senate will, in all probability, do more for
the Sacramento and the Feather rivers than
contemplated in the House bill.
Plumb Strongly Urges the Free Coinage of
Washington, June 6.— This morning
Mitchell moved to reconsider the vote by
which the Senate passed yesterday the bill
authorizing the construction of a railroad
bridge across the Columbia Kiver, near
Vancouver. The motion was entered.
The silver bill was then taken up and
Plumb adiliessed the Seuate.
Plumb believed it was the all but unani
mous opinion of the people that a very con
siderable increase in the volume of currency
was necessary. The circulation to-day was
£240,000,000 less than the framers of the
financial legislation of 1875 anticipated,
although the commercial business of the
country had doubled within that time. The
total amount of money which the people of
the United States had for the transaction
of their daily ' busiuess could trot exceed
$600,000,000. rllsllVUllisjl HMJIP^LI"
Ho believed it was less than $500,000,000,
and upon that narrow foundation had
been built an enormous structure of credit,
propped up hero and there by devices of
various kinds, and it kept swelling ana
growing, while the base on which it rested
did uot grow in proportion to the structure.
The Senator from New York (Ulscock)
had yesterday described the great wealth
and prosperity of the country, but if the
picture was true why was it the Senator
and his committee (Fiuance Committee)
were piling up protective duties. His
(Plumb's) idea was that not only should
the vacancy of the national bank circula
tion be made up but there ought to be
added to that at least as much a) would re
sult from the free coinage of silver. He
was willing to abandon his idea in favor of
fiat money nnd to widen the base of the
credit structure by adding to it all the sil
ver thai the United States Mints could turn
out. According to the best data there was
less than $00,000,000 worth of silver mined
every year in the United States; of that
some $30,010,000 was coined, $8,000,000 was
used in the arts, and only $17,000,0u0 could
be used in free coinage.
It was to be remembered that the
national bank circulation was being every
day retired, the amount to be retired this
year being £15.000,000. Plumb went on to
speak of the Silver Bill in connection with
the question of protection. The Senate
was appealed to yesterday by the Senator
from New York (Hiscock) against the bill
iv the sacred name of protection. Silver
was im American product— a much larger
product than ninny others that were to be
protected by duties of 200 or 400 per cent
under the Tariff Pill. lie would like to ask
the Senator from New York, who was so
anxious about foreign commerce, what he
intended to do with a tariff bill which
would prevent the United States from hav
ing any foreign commerce. He hoped he
might interpret the Senator's remarks on
that point as a hopeful augury of the action
of that Senator in putting his knife into
the bill vow before the Finance Committee;
a bill which would raise the price of nearly
everything used by the masses of tbo
The Silver Bill was then laid aside and
the Senate took up the bill to authorize
Maricopa County, Ariz., to issue bouds in
aid of railroad constructions. The bill
passed— 30, noes 18. It is the House
bill, and was passed without amendment.
A message from the President relating to
the landing of an armed force from the
revenue cutter at Cedar Keys, Fla., was
read and referred to the Committee on
Judiciary. Adjourned.
Ihj Caucus Substitute Opposed by the Free-
Coinage Members
Washington, June 6.— ln the House to-day
the silver debate was resumed, 1.in.l of Minne
sota was the lust speaker, He said sliver should
be restored to its former position. This was
demanded by ihe great mass of the Auiei lean
Lacey of lowa said the country has met with
a action of the currency. The pending bill
proposed to give the country an Increase to offset
the contraction, and even more. It was prac
tically a free-coinage bill. The capacity of the
mints was 000,000. - The free coinage of
every dollar of American silver would be about
$51,000,000, yet this bill proposed to give $54,
--000,000 a year ot legal tender Treasury notes.
It was a fiee-coinage measure because It pro
vided that when silver 'was at par the mints
should be open to free coinage. The country
needed an expansion of currency ln a safe way,
and this bill provided for-it. -
Walker of Massachusetts spoke against free
coinage. Ho asserted that . the demonetization
of silver was not the cause of decreased prices.
Prices had beeu going down a hundred years.
More money meant more misery. -
lVi kins of Kansas remarked lv that connec
tion, " We all love misery." .
Walker added ihal he was going to vote for the
pending bill because the members of the House
fi uiu I SOS up to the present time, for the pur
pose of getting back h re, had urged aud encour
aged the people tv their lolly until they had come
to such a state of mind thai something must he
done or they would bi eak the members up.
L Laughter.] It was pure politics; that was alt
about It.
. lilouut of Georgia contended that silver de
monetization had cast a blighting curse over
eveiybodv except tbe capitalist. To Increase the
volume of circulation was the only way to re
lieve not ouly the (cultural interest, but every
other Interest In tbe couutry. He criticized the
Treasuiy bill, declai.'ag It was Intended to slop
timber coiuage of the silver dollar. It was a
Wall-street measure. He also criticized ihe
Caucus bill aud advocated a tree-coinage nieas-
vie. .
Eland said he could only protest against the
right of a member of the minority to offer an
amendment. A gag-law was placed upon the
minority for the purpose of passing the bill
through the House, lire effect of which was to
demonetize silver. The bill was a Wall-street
scheme and a gold-bug scheme to change the
ratio between gold and silver. It recognized
silver bullion occordiug to Its gold value. Silver
was being murdered lv the house of Its friends.
He especially criticized the bullion redemption
clause, arguing that It would prevent any appre
ciable expansion of currency, ll would hold out
temptation to the Secietary of the Treasury to
make $1,000,000 out of speculation hi Wall
street. The free coinage of silver would not
only appreciate silver bullion but depreciate
gold bullion and bring the two metals to a
parity. The Government must either issue flat
money or give unlimited use to gold and silver.
Kerr of lowa advocated the bill as a long step
In the right dliectiou. It would result in ihe 10
--mout ilzation of sliver and in the two metals ul
timately going baud In hand.
Townsend of Colorado said prosperity would
not return, nor the downward course of prices be
arrested uutil silver was returned to Its proper
place. The only complete and perfect remedy
was to reverse the aciiou of 1873 aud go back to
the free and unlimited coinage of silver.
Horsey of Nebraska said thnt.if Secretary Win-
Hi. in had purchased and coined the maximum
amount of silver allowed under the existing laws
4,000,000* per mouth) there would have been
no need of this discussion and he would have
strengthened the administration of Fresldeut
Harrison. To that section of the substitute
which, provided for bullion redemption, Horsey
emphatically objected. Would It not be better to
cover the one million ledemptiou tund into the
Treasury and use ll as a part of the ciiculatlug
medium, and lv case United Stales notes weie
presented for redemption and there was no
money to meet the demand, allow the Secietary
to sell bonds to meet the demand. - The bullion
redemption feature would be stiicken out, and
be appealed to bis side of the bouse to allow a
vole ou the proposition. ,
Meltae of Arkansas appealed to the gentle
men oil the otber side who believed lv free coin
age to restore silver to Us proper place, not step
by step, but as it was destroyed, In one Jump. ,

Parrott Pitches Good Ball
Against Oakland.
Frisco Wins a One-Sided and lifeless
Game From the Senators.
Contests Played on Eastern Diamonds Ee
tween Clubs in tbe National
Stockton played poor ball Thursday, but the .
team redeemed Itself yesterday by winning one
of the best games yet witnessed ou Ibe Oakland
grounds. The San Joaquin men defeated '.lie
Colonels by tbe close score of 4 to 2, and they
deserved Uie victory. With two exceptions the
Stocktons played ball as If Ibe pennant depended
ou the result of yesterday's contest alone, and as
a consequence some brilliant and sharp fielding
was done. Tbe Infield work, outside of Selua's
errors, was especially hue, Fudger, Fogany aud
Wilson making many stops Unit might have been
scored as bits had the ball passed to
the outfield. Ihe maimer in which the
ibird baseman checked the rapid course ol
three bard bit grounders, aud then threw so
surely and speedily to the guardian of the first
corner, was In itself worth the pi Ice of admis
sion wiih a reserved seat tin own In. Being «M
uutoi lunate lii dropping two thrown balls, but
be distinguished himself by gracefully gathering
Id a fen throws that dug up a cloud of dust lv
frout of ihe cushion, Hut his put-out aud assist
lv a double play were simply astonishing. The
pretty play, however, was very coldly received
by Ibe Oakland audience, which bas not ye l bt-eu
educated up to the point of applauding marvel
ous work even when executed by visit
ors. It was In the fifth tuning.
Isaacson was at first, acting for Lohman as
base-runner, and Hill was at bat. llill stiuck
haid at a bail and fouled, sending the sphere
over to the bleachers. Selua made a long, swift
sprint, and while running rapidly against the
ball managed to get It within his bauds. It
seemed baidly possible be could recover himself
ln time to return the ball to prevent Isaacson
stealing secoud, and tbe Oakland first baseman
must have been thinking as much, for he Imme
diately ran down tbe line. But selna did cheek
himself, and by a splendid thiow to Fogaity le
tired the runner.
The honors of the day, however, belong to
Pitcher l'anolt. Although the young buxuian
did not pilch a strike-out game bis pitching was
the best tills year ou a California League dia
iii.md. He had perfect command of the bail, did
not send a mau to Hist through unsteadiness aud
was hit safely but. ilnee times, oue of the "safe*
ties" being si sciatcli single past second, the ball
striking a rock uud bounding over Fogarty's
head. The Oaklands scored mice in the sixth
inning aud that was Ihe extent of their ruu-get
Andy Smith, who bas been signed as regular
catcher by the Stockton management, received
Fan oil's delivery and played a steady game. He
is improving with practice aud throws well to
swan made his regular muff. '
Meegau pitched lor the Colonels and was so
effective that but six safe hits were made off bis
delivery. Tue team behind blin played a air
fielding game, making four errors, but three of
the misplays were veiy costly, letting in as many
runs. Hill's error was a peculiar one. A ball
was batted to center, but tbo fielder did not see
It uutil It was 100 iale to make the put-ou I. The

.and I. <.**! to Frisco. '
Sacramento, June 6.— The home team played
a lifeless, listless game tills alteruoon, and by
bunching belr errors when the visitors hit the
ball were never In the game. Half the time tbe
borne team had uo coaclirrs in the line, and had
several chances of scoring runs, but instead were
left on bases.
Lookabaugli and Stevens nnde ihelr first ap
pearance lieie as a battery and created a favor
able Impression. But lour bits were made off
Lookabaugh up to the ninth, but after that In
ning be was bit hard. Stevens caught a eood
fame, barring wild throws to second. Levy and
lanley made great catches of hy balls, and Kb
right caught a fly after a bard run and doubled
a i miner at secoud.
Keitz surprised every one by making two er
rors, but ihey were both hard chances. Daly
made a great one-Hand stop of a sure baser and
retired Sweeuey at first. Harper was wild and
was hit bard, especially when men were ou
bases. Farrell played right field and made au
excusable error. Sheridan umpired a good game,

President Harrison's Message to the Senate
Regarding the Matter.
Washington, June 6.— The President to-day
transmitted to the Senate information about tha
Cedar Keys (Fla.) matter.. The details of the)
circumstances are already familiar to the public
The letter adds:
It will be observed that tho United States Col
lector of Customs at Cedar Keys had been driven
from his office and from town, and the administra
tion of the customs -laws of the United States at
that port was suspended by the violent demonstra
tion and threats of one Cottrell, the Mayor of the
place, assisted by his Town Marshal, Mitchell. If It
had been necessary, as I do not tulnlr It caa be ia
any case, for a United States officer to appeal to tha
focal authorities for Immunity from violence In the
exercise of his duties, the situation at Cedar Keys
did not suggest or encourage such appeal. It will
always be agreeable to me It local authorities, acting
upou their own sense of duty, maintain the pub
lic peace. When this Is not done l shall deem It my
duty to use adequate powers, vested in the execu
tive, to make It safe ami feasible co hold and exer
cise the offices established by the Federal Constitu
tion and laws. The means used In this ca-e were,
ln my opinion, lawful and necessary, and the offi
cers do not seem to have Intruded upon any private
right in executing the warrants placed te their
A letter dated August 4th last, which appears la
the correspondence submitted, appealing to me to
Intervene for the protection of the city of Cedar
Keys from the brutal violence of Cottrell, It will
be noticed, was written before the appointment of
the new Collector. It Is a very grim coinioeutary-
Upon the condition of social order at Cedar Keys
that only a woman, who had, as she says in her
letter, no sou or husband who could b- made the .
victim of h s malice, had the courage to hie charges
against this man, who was then holding a subordi
nate place In the Customs service.
Tbe report ol United Stales Deputy Marshal
Estrange says that lie aud Captain Smythe ot Hit
revenue cutter McCaue were victimized by the
p. i.|. i*. who lulled them several times In their
eDuiis to recapture Cottrell. The captain of a,
steam launch demanded $50 a day for tbe use of
the vessel to make a in., up Suwauee lilver,
wheio it was believed Cornell was aiding, when
£10 a day would nave been a big price. Alter
Marshal .Mitchell's release be was reinstated tv
office, so one may sale.y Infer that the policy o(
May.. t'oitreli had been fully indorsed. 11a
adds: i
"The Attorney-General has been misinformed
In the mailer of our seaichlug dwellings unlaw
fully. lv every Instance I asked permission,
which, I am pleased to say, was readily, if not
cheerfully, given. I have beeu religiously scrupu
lous on tins point. But the rabble will talk autl
bluster.". * * •
The report of Captain Smytlie of the Mcl.ana
and J. 11. l'inkerioii, the Collector at Cedar
Keys, agree with the report published. Tinker
tou says: "I had heard that Cottrell said Lulled
Stales Attorney stripling would not prosecu'.a
linn, as they were particular friends*, aud I must
say Stripling discouraged me by his actiou lv the
matter, mid advised me to wall until Cottrell
made Hither demonstrations, and then to laka
a shotgun aud shoot him if he Interfered."
His Immediate Presence Needed Becaus- of
the Newfoundland Dispnts.
Ottawa, June 6.— lt is stated that Sir Charles
Topper Is returning to Canada because of ilia
Newfoundland dispute. The fact Is.
tbat last wee* Sir John Mac-'
donald cabled to Sir Charles that his
presence at Ottawa Is imperative it tire nego
tiations in connectlou with the Atlantic fisheries
and liehrlue Sea question are to be
continued. Eveiy ell.nt ou the p. re
of Tupper, the Minister of Marine and
Fisheries, to secure anything approaching a set
tlement has failed, and he has informed Air
John of his inability to accomplisU
anything at Washington. Two more cruis
cis bave been ordered to the Atlantic
lulling grouuds and more will follow. A
high official In the Marine and -fish
eries Department said: "Anuexatlon Willi
the Untied States is the Inevitable destiny
of Canada. I am convinced that Sir Charles
Tuppei's visit to Ottawa and Washington in con
nection with the fishery and l.eiirlug Sea dls
puies will be productive of uo good results, and
the Government knows It."

Baby one year old. Bad with Eczema-
Hair all cone. Scalp covered with erup-
tions. Cured by Cuticura. Hair splen-

Cured by Cuticura
I cannot say enough in praise of the Cuticura
Rkmli'iim. My boy, when one year of ag*e, was so
bail with eczema that he lost all of his hair. Ills
scalp was covered with eruptions, which the doctors
said was scald head, and that his hair would never
f-ow again. Despairing of a cure from physicians,
began the use of the Cuticura Remedies, and, I
am happy to say, with the most perfect success. tiim
hair Is now splendid, and there is not a pimple on,
him. I recommend the Cuticura Remedies tin
mothers as the most speedy, economical, and sura
cure for all skin diseases of infants and children,
and feel that every mother who has an afflicted child
will thank me for so doing.
