Lottery Bill taken up.
Wilkinson of Louisiana, In supporting the
measuie, admitted the pollution which the
Louisiana lottery has wrought upon bis Stale,
but attiiLuied the birth of thai pollution to the
days of ruction. The people ol Louisiana
looked will, gladness to the lime when lotteries
would be prohibited in that State, but tbe reve
nues to lhe Stale had beeu too great to be le
slsted without a struggle. When ibe Louisiana

Comment oi th- London Times on the Silver
London, Aug. 16.— The coming into force
of the Silver Act was saluted by an article
ln Wednesday's Times. Like nearly every
linancisl authority in this country that
journal thinks the present silver policy of
America a mistake and describes the act
as one which "compels tbe United States
Government to buy a certain commodity
and to bold it, issuing in the meantime to
sellers warrants which the public are
compelled to receive as money." The mo
tive for passing the act is believed to be
not wholly financial, but political also.
"Our own view." says the Times, "has
always been that the rise In tbe price of
sliver would be pretty rapid, and this has
proved to be the case. There will probably
be a pause wben the price has reached 54 or
55 pence per ounce, which the United States
will eventually adopt as its stai dard."
Paris aod the French 'Frtvirees Still Excited
Over Its Provisions.
Paius, Aug. 16.— The MeKiniey bill still
excites commercial circles in the city and
provinces. The recent Consular Confer
ence which was held in this city received
complaints ; from nearly, thirty Chambers
of Commerce, pointing out the difficulty of
complying with tbe provisions I of the bill

without almost destroying trade. The con
ference passed resolutions regretting that
delegates from the Chambers of Commerce
did not attend the sessions, as it could nave
been shown that the bill did not oppress
honest importers; that its only aim was to
protect the revenues of the United States,
and the fines and penalties Imposed by the
bill were chiefly re-enactments of old laws.
The conference decided to forward the com
munications received from the Chambers of
Commerce to Washington for the most fav
orable consideration that the terms of the
law would permit. The French press has
magnified tbe resolutions into a promise to
waive some of the most stringent require
ments of the law. The papers appear to be
lieve that the Amorican consular body has
the will and right to nullify an act of Con
gress. ___^__^^____

Berlin, Aug. 16.— The German ironclad ,
Irene and the imperial yacht Hohenzollern
were sighted oS Memel this morning. Tliey
stopped for Emperor William's dispatches
and then proceeded northward for Revel,
where they are timed to arrive early to
morrow. The Russian squadron, consist
ing of eighteen vessels, under command of
Grand Duke Alexis, will tire a salute upon
the arrival of the German vessels. Grand
Duke Vladimir will receive the Emperor
upon landing, and a regiment of St. Peters
burg Grenadiers, of which the Kaiser is
honorary Colonel, will form the guard of
The Emperor's stay at Revel will be very
brief, as the Czar desired that the Emperor
should go straight to St. Petersburg.
Public traffic on the railway connecting
Narva with St. Petersburg has been sus
pended, and the line will be used solely for
official business during the coming week.
The imperial conferences, at which Chan
cellor you Caprivi and De Giers will be
present, are expected tv last over three
days. if the Emperor fails to persuade the
Czar toward a permanent policy of peace,
the conditions of which will De arranged
through tbe revision of the Berlin Treaty
by another European Congress, official
opinion is decided that very rapid develop-:
ments tending toward a European conflict
are certain to follow.
llerr Bitter, a Free Conservative member
of the lower house of the Prussian Diet,
in a speech to-day said that from his per
sonal observation in the State Council he
had the highest appreciation of the per
sonality ot the Emperor. No German de
voted himself so exclusively, with every
fiber of his being and all the warmth of his
heart, to further the national welfare. The
conciliatory policy of the Emperor was
modifying the demands of the workiugmen,
and labor was beginning again to bow to
the sacredness of the law. The Emperor
grasped what was justifiable in the work
in-men's demands, and protected and up
held them. Tins the workiugmen them
selves recognized, and became willing to
co-operate with the Government to give
Germany permanent internal peace. His

Salisbury's last Latter to Elaine Regarding
th.' E-hr:r.e Sea Disrate. ■**. >..
London, Aug. 16.— Salisbury's last dis
patch to Blame, relative to the Behring Sea
dispute, bears date of August 2d. After
quoting from historical documents, the dis
patch concludes "These show that En
gland refused to admit any part of the Rus
sian claim, asserted in tbe ukase of 1821, to
a marine jurisdiction and the exclusive
right of fishing throughout the whole extent
of that claim, from Behring Straits to the
fifty-first parallel; also, that the convention
of 1825 was regarded by both sides as a re
nunciation on the part ol Kussia of the
claim in its entirety, and that though Behr
ing Straits were known and specifically pro
vided for, Hehring Sea was not known by
that name, but was regarded as part of the
Pacific Ocean. Her Majesty's Government
always claimed the freedom of navigation
and fishing in Hehring Sea outside the limit
of a marine league from the coast. It is im
possible to admit that the right to fish and
catch seals in the high seas can be held to
be abandoned by a nation from the mere
fact that fur a certain number of years it
did nut suit the subjects of that nation to
exercise such a right, It must be remem
bered the existence of British Columbia as
a colony and the development of the colo

legality of the recent captures, her Majesty's
Government is ready to refer the question,

o'clock in the morning until 10 o'clock in
the evening, whicii will enable each caller
to see and talk with a physician privately,'
One physician will have charge of the medi
cine and express room, and will be assisted
by a pharmaceutical graduate, who prepares
all medicines sent by express to out-of-town
patients. Two rooms are set apart for the
I'l,ysiciun-in-Chief, where all correspond
ence is examined. The correspondence
room is arranged to accommodate a corps
of sixteen stenographers and type-writers.
All of the answers , to correspondents are
dictated by tbe Fhyslcian-in-Chlef person
The pharmacy, where all prescriptions
are carefully compounded, is under charge
of a skilled graduate of pharmacy of lung
experience. The record department will be
under the direct superintendence of the
Physlciau-ln-Ch ief . Here all correspondence
is arranged and carefully iudexed, and as
each, patient is cured lite correspondence
regarding that individual case is burned or
returned to the patient, as one of the rules
of the institution is to preserve the utmost
secrecy and care regarding the confidential
communication of patients. No charge will
be made to ■ patients for examination, con
sultation, advice or a thorough diagnosis.
The medicines, drugs, herbs, etc., are pur
chased at wholesale in large quantities and
furnished to patients at first cost, avoiding
the usual profit of the druggist. - Each case
is carefully and thoroughly diagnosed, and
if there is no hope (or a cure the patient is
candidly informed of the fact, and if relief

effected, that information is furnished in

cattle losses in Nevada la-i winter: "1 have
been riding since June 15th over tue ranges.
We lost at least 30,000 bead of cattle. In Hum
boldt County, In oue ravine, I saw heaps of cat
lie lor three miles. Tbey were piled as many as
300 to 400 In a bunch. A herd which soueht
shelter from the storm was covered up with
snow aud died. Another herd went In on top of
tbem and sutleicd the same fate, piling on top of
each other and dying. The snow had drifted
over ibe first lot, and they must have trampled
each other under foot. Think ot a mass of dy
ing cattle prostrate In a ravine aud another
drove of 100 strong ones stamping right ln on
top of them and the storm burying all lv a com
mon grave. There must have been a terrible
struggle, for tbe bones ot many of them are
brokeu. The suu bas dried out the top ones, but
the effluvia from those underneath is sickening.
Eveiywhere you go you find the same state ot
affairs. No one escaped loss except those wbo

Buffalo, Aug. :, 16. — Three hundred
switchmen and yardmen struck at East'
Buffalo this morning. No freight trains
are moving. The strike was caused by
union men being ordered from Erie street
to take the place of the union strikers.
They came, but sent a delegation to Super
intendent Burrows, asking him to send
tliem back to the Erie-street Depot, as they,
being union men, objected to being de
tailed to take the places of brother union
ists out on a strike. Burrows refused.
The action of the switchmen gives a new
phase to the Central strike. It has now
spread beyond tbe Knights of Labor. The
men are members of the Switchmen's
Mutual Aid Association, a national organi
zation extending all over the country. It
has a membership of about 800 In this city,
lt is s.-.ld by the men that the strike is
likely to extend all over the Yatiderbilt
system and that it will certainly spread
should an effort be made to have non-union
switchmen handle Ceutral or West Shore
trains, '

The Home Team and Colonels
Play Great Ball.

Fine Fielding on the Part of Finn's Men
Brings Them Victory— Tail-
Enders Crushed.
It would not have been a wise thing for a man
subject to heart disease to have staid through
Ibe ninth tuning ln the ball game yesteiday
afternoon, .particularly II he was a partisan.
There were . 6000 people In the stands, i and
though one might have beard a pin drop, tbe
excitement was so Intense at the wind-up as to
be oppressive. The two teams had been playing
the greatest game of the season, and when
Lohman stepped to the plate In the Colonels'
last tutu at bat ihe score was 2 to 1 la favor of
the home team. The catcher raised a mighty
cheer from the Oakland contingent when be hit
the ball, over lluLe Levy's head to the fence.
Itube, however, quickly fielded the ball and
checked Lobinan at second base. Then Mc-
Donald sacilbced to Shea and advanced the
Oakland catcher to thud base. Then atlalis be
gan to gel veiy tmeiesllng. Willi a man ou
third aud ouly one out, It seemed sure tbe Col
onels would at least lie the score. Sllckney hit
In front 'of the plate and was thrown out by
Lookabaugh. Charley Oooley was cheered oy
tbe Oaklaud "fans" wheu be walked to bat, but
the handsome first baseireau was uot equal to
the task of balling a base bit, and struck out.
So the g me went to Filsco by a score ol 2 to 1.
The contest was undoubtedly tbe finest wit.
nessed on local grounds i llls year. The home
players played a magnificent fielding game,
Stevens' cc ror being a mull of 'a fly ball thai
should have been takeu by Veacu. Loukabaugb
was again id the bux lor linn's men and ouee
muie demonstrated that lhe more he is woiked
tbo belter ball . he pitches. in tbe first Inmug
the Colonels secured a tun and drew blanks
thereafter. Tliey cuuld not make enough lilts In
one lulling to scoie again ami Lnokabaugh's side
backed nun up lv splendid style al critical times.
Everett's shoitstop woik was one of the features
ol Ibe day. fie had blue chances aud accepted
lhem all without au etror,
Cobb's pitching was exceptionally strong. He
held the Frlscos down to lour lilts and struck
out eight men. ills support was pet feet except
at shortstop and at first base. Siickney's live
chances were of the difficult kiud and the speedy
Ihtcl baseman made pietly work of the hut
drives that went to his territory.
Dan Sweeuey and Cauliillun, the new Colonels,
made - llieir up, ear..uce witb the learn. Hie
former is not as tall as Speer. He Is a quick,
active outlieider, and can inn bases with great
speed. . It would nut be Just to criticise Carna
tion's work at sin.it yesterday, lie had not
fully recovered from the fatigue of ids long jour
ney, bul as It was he proved to be a hue m
henter. - ■ -
In tbe first tuning C. O'Neill hit safety to left
field, and advanced to secoud wheu Dooley was
hit by a pitched ball. Dungau hit to Everett,
who lotced Dooley at third, aud ibe bait was
tossed lo \ each, who needlessly itnew to

In the fourth Inning Ebrlght hit a single to

error ou I. oilman's tluow, and scored on Stevens'
single. In the sixth Stevens reached first on a
lorce hit, stole secoud, and went to third ou a
passed ball. Everett was given lirst base ou
balls, and wheu he stole secuud Stevens made a
daring steal home, ' The score:

Tendered by the Citizens of San
An Informal Assembly Held at the Union
League Club House— Speeches by the
Tbe crowd that gathered In the court-yard of
tbe Palace Hotel last night in anticipation of
Hie serenade io Colonel Markbam, which was
gotten up by tbe citizens of San Fraucisco, was
so large as lo render the place uncomfortable.
The Democratic politicians who haunted Ibe
place were made to feel somewhat lonely In the
midst of tbe enthusiastic Kepublican throng. f-f
The Park Baud tendered several selections ,
and then the Morton Kepubllcau Club marched
Into the court, convening tbe crowded place for
a while Into the coudition of the traditional sai
dine-cau, by reason of Ibe closely packed hu
manity. : f'\-:- :
During a lull In the music loud shouts went up
for MarkUam. Presently the Colonel appeared
on lhe upper balcony, and his coming lulo view
was the signal for prolouged cheering, whicii
drowned the best efforts of the baud to make It
self heaid.
Colonel Markham was Introduced by W. H.
Chamberlain, President of the Uuiou League
Club, and said :
A SHOUT Ml ; ' it.
My Friends: You all know that I have been
obliged to do a great deal of work during the
past few weeks and, I am sure, you do not ex
pect me to say much to you to-night, When i
came 111 this hotel yesterday evening 1 was
somewhat depressed. I bad cried from the
character of th.; crowds that 1 met here last
week thai the woods were full of Republicans;
but when I passed through these corridors last
night 1 was Impressed with the idea that I lie
woods were full of Democrats. To-night, how
ever,! am again rejoiced to see thai the woods
are full of Republicans. My friends, oue and
all, 1 thank you for this magnificent demonstra
tion and will say good-night."
After the ci owd bad thiuned out a little Colouel
Maikham was escorted to ibe rooms of ibe
Union League Club.
An Informal leceptlon was tendered Colonel
Marlijin by the Union League Club of San
Pranclseo al Its club-house, 322 Geary street,
last night. The frout of the buildiug was Illu
mined with colored lanterns, and wheu the
guests arrived the street was flooded with vari
colored lights from the balcouy. The honor of
receiving lhe guests devolved upon O. E. .Moure,
aud to his courteous manner is due the cordiality
whlcb marked the lecepiiuu al the pielluiiuary
Colonel Markham was taken possession of
by the large assemblage as toon
as be had delivered bis bat and
coat to the servant, aud for nearly au hour
be was forced to receive congratulations Irom
the great number who were present to meet him.
The grip of Ills haud was as powerful at the
lei inn. allien of the reception as at lhe begioulug,
and his pleasant smile and friendly remarks at
tract d to him eveu the few who were inclined.
to retain a little soreness over Morrow's defeat.
There were present neatly all the nominees of
the Slate Conveutlou, the lading delegates from
the south and many of the prominent Republi
cans of the ciiy.

ened over lidding Ibe corridors of lhe Palace
Hotel tilled with Democrats instead of with the
aimy of Republicans be had left wheu he bad
stalled lor the convention, but as he looked
arouud him now be felt ins spirits revive, for
again lhe woods were lilted witb his frieuds.
" I have not bad much sleep lately," he said,
"and 1 feel somewhat like when 1 was In the
army and the roads were wet and muddy aud 1
was so tired that 1 wauled lo lie down and let
the army go ou. Just about thai time lhe rebels
would be iv sight aud my sleepiness vanished
like magic. " II you could only iuiioduce a few
Democrats for a momeui you would find me as
wide awake as the suu lv the morning.'' iCheers.l
Johu B. Keddick, nominee lor Lieutenant-
Governor,- was called for aud be replied Id a
humorous vein. "Wheu I was returning from
Sacramento yesterday," be said, "mere were
three old geuliemeii seated uear me In tbe car,
Tbey had been reading the morning papers
aud bad laid them aside to discuss the
political situation. One of the trio remaiked
that judging from what be bad jusi read me lte
publicans must have called together the biggest
rogues and blgbwavmen In the Slate to place
their names ou die Stale ticket. 1 Imagined the
elderly pel sou had loi mcd bis opinion Hum lhe
pictures uf the uoiutuees which were in the
paper he bad beeu leading." [Laughter aud
Mr. Keddlek then said that tue lime bad come
for a united light, aud the laying aside of dis
appointments, if there are auy. "We must
yield to tbe majority," be urged, "and ever yone
must gel lino ibe traces. \V 111,111 a few days our

bole and corner ol Ibe Stale, and while we ate
after them, we waul the gentlemen of Sau Fran
cl>co to guard well the citadel." ICbeers.}

little pull wheie be lives. [Cheers.]

when the Uuiou League Club ol tbis city was

He stated lor purposes of campaign that when

cabbage-bead ticket, yet it ls an on year"
[cheers] ltepubllcaus should iutuse new energy
Into tUrlr work and prove ihat li will not be " au
oil year, but an in year and ou." lie argued
that the result of Iho conveutlou showed mat
there ls safety in large conventions, and that the

Colonel Chamberlain then read letters of re
gret lor absence from VV. 11. Diuioud, who pre
dicted a successful aud harmonious campaign,
and also Irom A. S. llallldte, wuo wrote thai

Three Non-Union Molders As
saulted by Seven Men.
One of the Trio Is Struck With a Ccbblt
Stone and Fires Three Shots—
Assailants Mike Their Escape.
Another shooting affray took place last even
ing betweeu a non-union mulder and a crowd of
seven men who were endeavoring to draw bim
aDd his companions out of the foundries.
The shooting grew out of an assault.
Joseph Beale, a non-union molaer, employed
In Byron Jackson's foundry, lett the shop last
evening about 0 o'clock, and was ilioilly after
ward met by John Beale, a brother of the formeri
and K. Pitliulan. The two latter men work at
the Golden Gate Foundry. Tbe trio proceeded
down Second street toward Market, and ou their
journey were met by seven men.
According to the story told by Joseph Beale,
who ls under arrest at lhe City Prison, the crowd
of seven meu asked the uou-uulon molders to
come down lhe stieet. "We waul to see you,"
Ihey said.
They addressed themselves pauicularly to
Joseph Beale, who lephed: "We have no lime;
we are going out."
The men persisted, aud the non-union molden
still refused to go. "Finally," said Joseph Beale.
"one ot Ibe men got very aDgry and moved oil
Suddeuly I became dizzy aud putting my baud
to my head 1 felt blood. 1 koew then that I had
been struck by something. I did not feel the
bluw, but felt numb. 1 reeled, and my brother
held me while 1 put my band In my pocket, drew
my pistol and bred at lhe man wbo bad assaulted
me. He was some distance off. As 1 tired my
pistol Ibe men started to tun. I tired tbrea
shots, but do not know whether I struck ibe
man or net. I am inclined io believe I did, as
he shook his band af let the first shot, aud at the
third be limped off."
As soon as ibe sound of tbe shots, which were
fired Id rapid succession, had died away, a large
crowd rushed to the scene, lv a lew minutes
over 2000 people weie on the spot making ex
cited Inquiries about the particulars. Officer T.
L. ltyan was hardly 100 hundred yards away
when the sbuollug took place, and ran to t.ie
spot, arriving just in lime lo catch Beale Willi
the weapon lv tils baud. The other uon-uulon
molders did uol diaw or use any pistols.
Officer Ryan placed Beale under arrest, but
the altitude of the fast gathering crowd grew so
threatening that he took his prisoner into a cor
ner drugstore, as he feared mat stones might be
thrown and Beale or himself seriously Injured.
Tbe officer telephoned to Captain Short at tha
Southern Station and Informed blin of tbe condi
tion of affairs, asking lor assistance. Captain
Short al once sent a posse of officers to disperse
lhe crowd, and pi event auy more hostility. Be
fore the arrival ol lhe officers there were several
more lights betweeu members of ibe crowd, and
at oue lime ll looked us II a general disiurbauca
would lake place.
Officer Uj an bin lly found an opportunity aod
took his prisoner In a back to tbe Receiving
Hospital, as his face was all covered with blood.
An examination of Beale's injuries was made by
Dr. hunker, and two large scalp wounds were
fecund ou the left side of the bead. In lhe opinion
of the Police Surgeon the wounds were indicted
with a cobble stone.
After tbe mjuiles were dressed Beale was
taken To the Ceutral Station, where a charge ot
assault with a deadly weapon was placed against
his name, although Officer Ryau could uot dis
cover either the nun who was shot at or whether
be had been struck or uot. Still as Beale ac
knowledged having tired his pistol at a man the
charge held good un the prison register.
When Beale was questioned about the affair
be said that he was not certattl whether the men
Wbo assaulted htm weie sinkers or uot, but was
Inclined 10 think so from ibe fact thai be wav
proceeding peaceably on his way when he was
attacked and struck ou Ibe head with a rock.
He knew ol no other course to pursue than in
defend himself as be did. He did not waul i >
take life, bul to protect himself. lie would know
the mau again why struck him witn a rock It he
was arrested for lotoffeuse. B-ile believes his I
assailant lo hare bom a stilker because be had'
no oilier euemles. ' -•».-< .-,;.'
Officer Ryan stated that from tuo descriptions
which bad been furnislied ulna of lite assaulting
party.be recognized several as being striken,
and would at once stait out to look them up. He
did uol tell tlie names of any be suspected.
Shortly after Ibe shooting a Call, reporter paid
a visit to the foundry district, but was unable to
obtain any additional Information. The crowd
bad not yet dispersed, and groups of men were
stalioned at short Intervals discussing lhe situa
tion, while numbers of officers were uu baud 10
prevent any outbreak.
At tbe minders' headquarters It was denied
that the assaulting party were union men, aud"
claimed thai they had no uiatto.i of any of
tbeir number being shot.
Tbe-geiieral belie! is thai the man fired at was
not lilt nt all, bul that tbe whole patty gut away
as fast as possible hi order to escape arrest.
