Mrs. Searles leaves an estate valued nt 530.000, -000, with a prospective value of nearly double that amount Her death and this transfer of property may also control the destiny of the Southern Pacific Railroad, for Mrs. Searles had such large hold ings in the stocks and bonds of that road as to give her the balance of power, and it is said that she has been acting steadily with C. P. Huntington In his control of the management. Now that the estate is transferred it has been in timated that Huntington may not be able to continue in control of Mr-, .^earles' block of stocks and bonds, and that it is not im possible that Leland Stanford may succeed Mr. Huntington in the possession of the controlling interest.

James Sproule, Private Secretary of Mr. Timothy Hopkins, was seen at a late hour last night and questioned as to the probable course of his principal, now that the con tents of Mrs. Searles' will are known. He replied thai there was really nothing to be said. Mr. Hopkins has been informed of the demise of his mother and at once cabled to have his interests represented and watched until he returns home. Mean while, it is assumed that nothing will be done; indeed, nothing can be done. Mr. Hopkins, so it is understood by his Secre tary, left Yokohama for San Francisco yes terday, and will come direct. What lie will do his agents are wholly unable to state. It is reasonably certain, however, in spite of Mr. Sproule's guarded manner of speak ing, that the contents of the will are a com plete surprise to them all. The very slight est inference was also lent that Mr. Hopkins is returning home to take very active meas ures in securing and protecting what he had every reason to regard as his rightful Inter est in his mother's estate. Mr. Sproule does uot seem to think that there is any occasion for haste now, and that the delay consequent upon Mr. Hop kins' voyage will not impair his interests nor make any difference in the arrange ments. .

Sullivan, attorney for Public Ad ministrator Freesc, appeared before Judge Coffey yesterday afternoon, when the former moved that letters of adiuinstration on the property of the late Mrs. Hopklns-Seerles in this city be granted to his client. Attorney Sullivan, for the Public Administrator, said he desired to withdraw that official's appli cation for letters of administration. Several witnesses were then examined as to Sever ance's application, and the letters requested ' were granted, with bonds fixed at 5120,000, with C. F. Crocker and W. E. Blown as sureties. -♦ PERSECUTED JEWS. Stories of Barbarous Treatment by Russian Eoldiers. Boston, July 30.— The Russian Jews who arrived yesterday tell pitiful stories of cruelties. Russian officers ordered all the inhabitants of the town of Slabotky to leave their homes. They became so en raged at this wholesale injustice that they set fire to their houses and destroyed them. For this many were sent to Siberia and others were subjected to horrible cruelties. One man was suspended by the wrists for two hours. Harrowing stories are told of general atrocities practiced upon the race by Russian soldiers and of the extremely unjust laws in force against the Jews. Any Russian Christian who wishes to possess himself of the property of a Jewish neigh bor can obtain it by paying one-tenth of its value to the Mayor or a Government repre sentative, Who will thereupon give him authority to expel the Jewish owner and install himself as proprietor. It Is an ordi nary occurrence for a Jew's House to be burned over his head or a Jew to be stoned on the streets, and it has become a common saying in parts of Russia. " Kill a Jew and pay twenty rubles" (£10). No other pun ishment is ever inflicted for the murder of a Jew, and even this fine is seldom imposed. Some of the Jewish soldiers in the Russian army wanted to rebel because their families were maltreated by Russian Soldiers, and the Jewich soldiers were all placed under arrest. DELAWARE PEACHES. The Reports of the Crop Failure Pronounced Grossly Exaggerated. New York. July 30.— The Commercial Bulletin says its advices from the Delaware Peninsula do not harmonize with the grow ers' reports that the crop is a failure, and pronounces the latter grossly exaggerated. The Bulletin says the loss of fruit, while considerable, and a matter of regret. Is not as had as has been pictured. Probably the greatest drawback is experienced in the evaporators. It is stated that the •competi tion between canners and green-fruit Deal ers has raised the prices for green fruit to a point that robs the .southern driers of ait opportunity to compete against»California dried fruit in any quarter where a good arti cle is required. a GOOD FOR FOUR YEARS. The New Canadian Cabinet Opposed to Po- litical Subsidies. Boston, July 30.— Baron yon Huge) of Canada is in Boston, and in an Interview to-day said he was glad of the opportunity to correct some of the wrong impressions regarding the new Dominion Government formed since Sir John Macdonald's death, The administration Is a strong one. Both Laurier and Abbot are strong, honest men. While not as brilliant as Sir John, they are just as sound, and less liable to com promise their party. Sir John was not The Morning Call above forcing through Parliament subsi dies for political or personal 'friends. The new administration lias shutdown on sub sidies There will be no more, and this the Taxpayers will appreciate. The G 'V eriiment is safe for the next four years. The people ate in favor of independence. England pays Canada for the privilege of ruling them, and while reciprocity with the United States is desired, a commercial or political union is not. The annexationists have no real Influence. Most of them are like Mercier of Quebec, Democrats, and de pend op the anti-English sentiment among the French Canadians to sustain tlieir views. ■\VALIi-STKEET HUMOUS. Reflections on the Credit of a Great Banking- House. New York, July 30.— The Stock Ex change was full of false rumors to-day affecting the credit of a banking house aud commercial firms, and the free manner in which the names of big houses were handled caused great anxiety. It was believed by many that there must be some foundation for the reports, r.ni many holders of stocks and bonds threw over their securities. The Union Pacific suffered most from bear at tacks, which accompanied this liquidation, and sold down to 39)4 or 3 -i below the lowest point.

The first talk about it began some months ago when bills of exchange of this bank werediscrlminated aealust. Then about two or three weeks ago it was under stood the house was in trouble and another large house was helping it out. It was stated that by to-morrow it would be definitely known whether or not the house could pull through. Mr. Dickey of the firm of Brown Bros. <fc Co. said he had heard of the rumor. It was to the effect that some firm was In debt in the sum of £0.000.000 which they could not pay. "What the firm is, or whether there is any such firm at all, I do not know." he continued. "I only know that it is not our firm, and that's all I know. The man or men who started such a rumor ought to be fouud out and sent to the penitentiary for life. Such a crime is worse than murder and does the country more harm." THREATENED STRIKE. Grievance of the Engineers of ths Kansas City Elevated Road.

France expected 1 1 make the finest exhibit at Chi cago that she had ever made. ■Numbers of the leading artists had promised the most important examples of their works. They would need about 12,000 square feet of wall space, and as the French interest in the exhibition would be so great they Would like to secure a separate build ing for the French art display, lv addition to the art space Fiance desired 50,000 feet reserved for three months until her exact necessities should be determined.

A COMMISSION OF CARDINALS' The Work cf Reorganizing the Missions to Be Prosecuted. Rome, July 30.— The Holy See has just appointed an extraordinary commission of Cardinals to reorganize Catholic missions. Two years ago Cardinal Simeoni prepared and communicated to the Pope a plan of re forms, in order to better regulate the actions of the Propaganda. But the Coming of Geneial Simmons from England on special mission to Pope Leo in reference to colonial questions bad the effect of postponing the execution of the projected reforms, as Ihe Propaganda did not wish to awaken the idea that the reforms weie made in conse quence of nn arrangement with England. Any suspicion of such arrangement would have aroused the greatest jealousy in France. Leo, who lias always been in favor of the missions taking a leading part in the vioik of colonization, has revived these projects of reform. Tho inquiry of this Commission of Cardinals will, it is said, extend over the whole apostolic world. The Vatican dees not intend to let the question of social reform drop now that the Pope's encyclical letter las been published.

July 30.— Archbishop Ire land of St. Paul, Minn., called upon the Commissioner of Indian Affairs to-day aud had an interview, during which the Com missioner desired the statement made that he has received satisfactory assurances that no part of the money received by tho Bureau of Calholio Indian Missions from the Gov ernment for the education of Indian chil dren had beeu used for the expenses of the bureau, but the entire amount had been paid to and used by the schools for which it was intended. Baltimore, July 30.— 1n a conversation with a reporter to-night regarding the con troversy between the Bureau of Catholic Indian Missions and tho Commissioner of Indian Affairs, Cardinal Gibbons said, after investigation he is satisfied that undue im portance has been attached to the recent controversy. He does not see how the change in the manner of preparing the con tracts, deemed advisable by Commissioner Morgan, can in any manner affect the real interests of tho Indians, and therefore it is a point which should not disturb Catholics. The Bureau of Catholic Indian Missions is still in a position to labor iv ninny fields of usefulness. Archbishop Ireland, who visited tho Commissioner, re ceived ample and positive assurances of his disposition and intention to treat the Cath olic Indian schools with equity and gener osity. The Cardinal added that Archbishop Ireland is personally satisfied that Morgan's assurances will be carried out, and that lie, the Cardinal, has every reason to believe that the President and Secretary of the In terior are benevolently disposed toward tlie Catholic Indian schools, and will treat them in a just and equitable manner. • SENATOR QUAY. He Explains Why Ha Desired to Resign as Chairman. Philadelphia, July 30.— Senator Quay arrived here this evening. In an interview he spoke freely of his resignation from tho Republican National Committee. "I was merely desirous of relinquishing the Chair manship," said he. "and in order to do that it was necessary that I should withdraw entirely from the committee. 1 had previ ously made several attempts to resign. I first made up my mind to withdraw on Sat urday night following the Presidential election of 1888. 1 was persuaded not to carry out the purpose then. In March, 1800, while in Florida, I wrote Mr. Ciarkson, ask ing him to call tho committee together to consider my resignation. Shortly after this an attack began on me and, of course, I could not resign under fire. Recently I con cluded that the time had arrived when 1 could properly sever connection with the committee, aud 1 did so." FORCED TO ASSIGN. Failure of a New York Broker in Investment Securities.

A GORMAN BOOM. Indorsed for Re-Election by the Maryland Democrats. A State Ticket Unanimously Nominated by the State Convention. Party National Administrations Compared. Proceedings of the Republican Congress Denounced. Special to The Mobn-imo Ca_,i_, Baltimore, July 30.— 1t is well known that United States Senator Arthur P. Gor man is a candidate for re-election by the next General Assembly of Maryland, and that his name has been mentioned fre quently for Presidential honors. Attention has been centered upon him and also upon the State Convention of his party, which was held here to-day. Although Senator Gorman was unable to bo present the con veution was unanimously for him, as is shown by the resolutions adopted and the frequent and rapturous applause whenever his name was mentioned. Not only does the platform recognize his signal services to the Democracy, but the" special resob..ion indorsing him for re-election to the Senate gives evidence of the esteem In which tie is held. One enthusiastic speaker said that "the leader in defeating the Force Bill will be the next President of the United States." Hon. Barnes Compton, Chairman of the State Central Committee, called the conven tion to order and ex-Governor Henry Lloyd was selected Chairman. The preliminary organization being com pleted and nominations In order, Dr. Frank T. Shaw of Carroll County placed in nomi nation Frank Brown for Governor. He was declared the nominee by acclamation. The other nominations, also made by ac clamation and amid much enthusiasm, were: John P. Coe of Baltimore for Attorney- General. J. Frank Ford of St. Mary's County, Clerk of the Court of Appeals. Marion de Kalb Smith of Kent County for Comptroller. ;;y '. The platform, after commending the can didates nominated, takes up matters of na tional interest and contrasts unfavorably the administration of President Harrison and the late Republican Congress with the administration of President Cleveland and a Democratic Congress. It declares that the Republican Administration and Congress have disregarded the pledges of the party with regard to Civil Service reform and the reduction of taxes incident to tlie tariff. The Civil Service of the United States as a whole to-day it declares is a partisan organization, doing political service for the Administra tion by which it is employed. President Harrison and a Republican Con gress found, on advent to power, a largo surplus in the Treasury left by an economi cal Democratic Administration. The sur plus told a plain tale to the people, demon strating that taxes imposed by Republican Administrations are in excess of the needs of a Government economically adminis leied, aud therefore unnecessary and un just. Iv place of the reduction which the people were led to expect, the finances of the country have been mismanaged and wild speculations and commercial disasters have followed in its train. The surplus was wasted in extravagant expenditures and the unjust and unnecessary taxation continued. The Republican paity found on tho ad vent of Harrison to office the people no longer divided by sectional lines, but pros perous and thoroughly united. The Repub lican party, through the agency of the Speaker of the House of Representatives, deprived Democratic Representatives of their rightful seats and sought to perpetu ate Its power and destroy the autonomy of several States by means of the notorious Force Bill. The Democratic party is deoply grateful to the Senators and Representa tives who contributed to defeat that obnox ious measure, and more especially to the Hon. Arthur P. Gorman, whose leadership contributed largely to its defeat. The existing tariff system, the platform declares, casts unnecessary burden upon the people. tends to accumulate enormous wealth in the hands of the few and to promote mo nopolies. Theso abuses, it believes, can only be corrected by the election of a Presi dent and a Congress pledged to a careful and thorough revision of the tariff system. A dollar In gold coin and a dollar iv silver coin should bo of equal exchangeable value, the platform declares, in all the markets of the United States, and any attempt to de preciate by legislation either of these metals ought to be deprecated and condemned. The platform closes with an indorsement of Senator Gorman for re-election by the next Legislature to the Senate. From first to last the convention was more of a ratification meeting and ovation to Sen ator Gorman than a party convention. DID NOT APPEAR. A Detective Waiting to Arrest a Com plainant. Philadelphia, July 30. — Architect Josiali S. Briean, for whom a warrant of arrest was issued by Magistrate Devlin sev eral weeks ago on a charge by Manager Post of the Tubular Car Company of Braddock, Perm., of embezzlement of stock, etc., amounting to 533.G00, appeared before the magistrate to-day. The prosecutor failed to put in au appearance and Briean was dis charged. Subsequent events show that the probabilities are that if Manager Post had put in an appearance be would now be In jail. A detective was waiting for him with a warrant calling for his arrest on the charge of the embezzlement of 517,500. For nearly two weeks Briean and Post have been giving out to tho public that each was on a still hunt for the other. The warrant for Post was issued on the oath of William J. Gray, that Post, as the manager of the Steel Tubular Car Company, had borrowed the above amount. Since then they have learned that the money was fraudulently obtained, hence the suit. Post's whereabouts is un known, y *v *y ' BOYCOTT LIFTED. A Victory for the Chicago and Alton Bail road. Chicago, July 30.— The Chicago and Grand Trunk Riilwayof Canada to-day lifted the boycott against the Chicago and Alton road. This is believed by some to be the beginning of the end. The success of the Alton in securing the Grand Army busi ness for itself and Wabash road brought about this result. It is said that in many parts of the West ticket agents have banded themselves into a sort of secret society for the purpose of fighting the enemies and fav oring the friends of the Alton. The predic tion is made that not a few of the Eastern lines will promptly accept the opportunity afforded by the Grand Tiunk to abrogate their agreement. ■ m VIOLENT STOKM, Streets Flooded and Houses Blown From Their Foundations. WiLLiAMsroRT (Pa.), July 30.— A violent wind and rain storm occurred here this afternoon. Purlieus of the town were flooded two or three feet deep. The storm did much damage. On the south side thirty-five bouses were wholly or partially blown off their foundations.

July 30.— A special dispatch from Pierre, S. Dak., to the Pioneer Press says: Considerable comment has been oc casioned by the decision of the United States court iv regard to the status of chil dren born of Indian women and white or citizen husbands. The case In point was that of tho United States v). Ward, on a charge of selling . liquor to a half-breed. The evid-.iKc was that the half-breed In PRICE FIVE CENTS. question had a negro fathei, who was a cit izen, and an Indian mother. The decision of the court Is that the children follow tho status of their father, and hence are citizens of the United States, and nre amenable only to its laws. If this decision holds good it will affect tho ownership of tho greater part of tho lands taken up in the vicinity of Fort Pierre and Stanley, across the river from Pierre, as it is nearly all held by squaw-men's children and their wives, yyyy An Allowance Withheld. Philadelphia, July Edward Pep per Sr. filed his answer to-day to the allega tions made against him by his son, Edward Pepper Jr., M.D., in a bill in equity. In his bill Dr. Pepper Jr. alleged that he was obliged to give up the practice of medicine in Paris prior to January, 1884, and remove to Algiers, because of ill-health, lie re leased to his father all his interest in his inheritance from his mother and claims that his father agreed to pay him 12,001) francs a year. The annuity was paid for awhile, but for the past five years no payments have been made. In his answer tiled to-day Pep per Sr. denies that his son was forced to leave Paris became of ill-health, hut says his departure was owing to his moral mis conduct, lie agreed to pay his son 1000 francs a month in order to avoid a scandal, the payments to continue during good be havior on condition that the money should be used for the support of his wife and fam ily, lie learned, however, that his son had abandoned his wile and family and gone oil with another woman, and consequently ha had ceased paying the allowance. The agreement was made solely for the support of young Pepper's family and not to support his sou in a life of degradation. Converting the Chippswas. Chicago, July 30.— A dispatch from Dulutb, Minn., says Captain Jack Crawford has returned from a trip to the northern part of Vermilion Lake and reports that Frank Porter, a half-breed, aud Mrs. Dempsey of Stillwater, Minn., for the past three months have been working among the Chippewa Indians on the reservation and have converted nearly all to Christianity. A few days ago the Indians gathered all of their idols in a big pile and burned them. The Missouri Changes Its Channel. St. Paul, July 30.— special to the Dis patch from Pierre, Dak., says: There were lively times at Fort Pierre yesterday, caused by a sudden change in the channel of the Missouri River, which washed away a strip of bank eighty feet wide and a quarter of a mile long.

Utiles Under Which One of the Principals 19 Sure to ile Knocked Out. John T. Miller of Fort Reno, Okla.. while seated in a group nt the Laclede Hotel, pugilism beiug the topic of conversa tion, said: "When you talk about a fight to a finish and knock-out blows, both are witnessed in the aboriginal decree of perfection when a fight between two Indian bucks is seen in a ring, the circumference of which is not a rope, but a string of interested hitman spec tators. It is a lact that among Indians of the same tribe, though they may number thousands, there are few cases of quarrels among them that ever result in murder. This is strange when it is remembered that the Indian is passionate, uncontrolled In his impulses, cruel and ferocious by nature. They have their difficulties and quarrels however, but arbitration ot the 'old men - prevents bloodshed or murder. " Yet once In a while a fight occurs and it is a novel sight to witness. One buck challenges another to combat, and, accom panied by tlieir friends to the battle-ground, each buck is stripped to the nudity so pleas ing in high-cultured art schools among tho palefaces, and made to confront the other. Between them lies a war club— a smooth, long piece of hardwood, seasoned by years . of service and regarded as a sort of mascot because of the blood stains received on it during the war. Tha seconds of the surly looking duellists toss up a piece of bark on 'the wet or the dry* principle, when boys long ago chose sides in playing town ball. The winner picks up the club, and his op ponent, folding his arms, sturdily plants himself, bending his head. It is the club bearer's privilege to whack his antagonist just as hard as he can and with all the vig orous maliciousness he can command on iho back. It is a foul blow to strike above or below tho back. One blow is struck, and then the man who has endured it picks up the club, and his opponent is subjected to all the force he ran command. So tha whacking goes on, and almost every blow is a knockdown one, until the duellist last knocked down rises to his feet aud refuses to accept the club from his opponent. Ua has had enough, ami the party breaks up. "The seventy of the punishment Inflicted and endured In these duels is marvelous. The club used has a jagged edge, and every blow struck brings blood, making deep cuts nnd fearful bruises. I have seen two such fights, and they are brutal and nauseating in the coolness of tlieir procedure and tha appearance of both contestauts after vic tory is won and defeat confessed."— Democrat.

Why, your Honor, he was never known to bet on horses, play poker, drink whisky or use tobacco. He—" "Hold on a minute," the Judge broke In; "you say ho didn't bet on horses?"
