TARPEY HAS LOTS OF GRIT.
He Went Into the Fight to Stay and
Cannot Be Scared Out of
Special to Tns Morn-imi Call.
Washington, March 22.— The California
delegation is making no further recom
mendations lor office. In fact its members
do not Know whether to recommend or
whether not to. Cleveland Is so crotchety
that tbey do not know whether it is worth
while to.try and advise him.
It is stated by a gentleman who talked
long with Cleveland to-day that the Presi
dent said that as he was responsible to the
people for all appointments made he cer
tainly wouhl not delegate to others the right
to fill tbe offices. This agrees with what he
said to Representative Maguire of Sau
Francisco the other day.
The President will, however, be glad to
receive suggestions and advice from Sena
tors and Representatives in Congress, not
as State delegations but as individuals. If
the recommendations made appear to be
good ones they will be regarded, and If uot
tbey will be disregarded.
Representative Geary saw the President
to-day, and according to his statement,
Cleveland will refuse to recognize those
office-seekers who are now testing the
hotel lobbies in Washington. Mr. Geary
further understood from the President that
California office-holders would be allowed
to serve out their terms of office. In this
case, the appointment of Wise to succeed
Phelps as Collector of Customs will net be
made for about a year yet. Tarpey has not
abandoned his candidacy for this place, al
though every one tells him Wise has a
"cinch" on it. Tarpsy filed his papers at
the Treasury Department to-day.
Del Valle of Los Aneeies. who was
backed by the entire Calilornta delegation
for the Mexican mission, which went to ex-
Governor Gray of Indiana, has concluded
that he does uot want to be Minister to
Chile. Ten thousand dollars a year is not
enough salary, he says, aad he wants a
place where he can save some money or no
place at all.
The Chilean mission just about pays ex
penses, and as one of his friends put it,
"Del Valle does not want to work four
years for his board."
The Irish crowd are betting that English
will not receive much, if any. recognition
for himself or his friends, while English's
friends say that Irish will not be made
Naval Officer in face of the protests that
are being urged against his appointment.
J. J. Dwyer will leave here in a day or
two for New York, and he may or may not
return. Senator White said to-day that
there was no truth in the report circulated
last night to the effect that an Eastern man
would be appointed Minister to Japan.
This may be true, and ns no appointment
has been decided upon yet the drooping
spirits of California aspirants for this office
are consequently greatly brightened.
Among the applications for office filed at
the Treasury Department to-day are these:
C. Hirsch of Sun Francisco, to bo Assistant
Appraiser; C. E. Phelan cf Lake County to
be Inspector of Drugs; Donald Bruce of
San Francisco to be Naval Officer; Vf. S.
Leak of Sacramento to be Collector ; Robert
A. Thompson of Santa Rosa to be Appraiser
at San Francisco; James C. Tucker of San
Francisco to be Appraiser; O. M. Wellborn
of Gilroy to be Collector of the First Dis
trict; M. F. Tarpey to ba Collector of Cus
No Threats, but Cleveland Had Better
New York. March 22. — The failure of
President Cleveland to send in any New
York appointments to-day to the Senate had
a discouraging effect upon the anti-snap
pers of this city and Slate, and the circum
stances were discussed in anything but
hopeful tones by the "original Cleveland
men," many of whom arc waiting anxiously
tor "recognition." Their solicitude is by
no means quieted when they remember that
Laraont, who Is admitted among Democrats
of all stripes to be exceedingly near the
President, had a long, earnest and confiden
tial talk with Richard Croker on Saturday.
The young Secretary, when be returned to
Washington, bore a message to Cleveland,
which doubtless has caused a halt in tho
nomination of anti-snapper applicants for
Federal offices who are distasteful to the
snapper Tammany people. They know
now that Croker requested Lamont to say
to the President something like this:
"We are asking nothing of Cleveland's
administration. We do not claim a single
office. But we do object to the policy of
appointing our enemies to places of honor
and profit. Tammany supported Cleveland
loyally, and when it comes to places like
Collector, Postmaster, United States Dis
trict Attorney, United States Marshal and
offices of that kind, here in New York we
do not care to see them taken from the class
whose selection will be looked upon not
only In New York but throughout the
country as an evidence that it let the purpose
of Cleveland to give a black eye to Tam
many Hall. If the President elects to place
himself in such an attitude before the de
mocracy of the country it will be a mistake
which he will live to regret. Tammany Hall
is making no threats, bit we alvise Cleve
land not to repeat such appointments as
those of Maxwell and Whitney for places
in this city and this Stale."

COMFORT FROM BISSELL.
At AH Events the Congressmen Will
Not Be Ignored.
Wariiington, March 22.— Five members
of the Missouri delegation in Congress
called at the Postofflce Department 10-day,

What lie most desired was that he should
have the benefit of tho advice of the people

Congress. No one would in any sense be
ignored, and it was folly to suppose that
the assistance, advice and recommenda
tions of men of such high character as the
representatives of the people In Congress
were uot earnestly desired. Bissell said
that he understood the statement had been
published that no women were to be ap
pointed to postmasterships, and that news

against. Neither of these stories was true
and he regretted their publication. He
then bade the delegation good-day. and
hoped they would come and see him when
ever they had anything to say with regard
to appointments in his department.

Washington. March 22.— One of the
most interesting developments of the day at
the White House was tho fact that became
known that the commlssionersbip of pen
sions bad been offered to ex-Congressman

Wheeler had a long talk with the President
upon the subject, and at that conference

A CRAZY NIHILIST.
There Is Much Mystery About the
Latest Russian Crime.
Moscow, March — Owing to the vlgil
anco of the authorities in suppressing all
Information concerning tho shooting of
Mayor Alejeff it is impossible to get more
light on the case. Even the fact of his Ufa
or death is enveloped In mystery. This
morning the Novoe Vremya announced that
he was dead. This afternoon an official bul
letin denied the report and slute.l that the
surgeons lind extracted the bullet and that
ilia Mayor might recover. Two hundred
policemen surround the City Hall and keep
back the crowd, which has decreased but
little since the lirst news of the shooting
went out. It Is reported this evening that
Adrianoff is a half-crazed nihilist. He was
once arrested In St. Petersburg for con
spiracy, but was adjudged insane and sent
to an asylum.
Adrianoff refuses to make a statement,
but the police are convinced It Is the result
of a nihilist plot. Adrianoff is or a respect
able middle-class family. Apparently he had
no cause for the shooting. The Mayor re
sponded to a request of Adrianoff that he
wanted to see him and was shot down.

Oxford's time was 18 mm. 47 sec. The
time of the race is the best ever made over

that of Oxford last year— l 9 mm. 21 sec.
The race was of added interest t.i Ameri
cans this year by reason of the prospective
appearance of those famous crews in
America against Harvard or Yale. So, the
comparison of the time made at home and
abroad becomes a matter of importance. In
the four-mile race Harvard and Yale have
never equaled the lime made by Oxford last
year. In 1888 the distance was covered in
20 mill. 10 sec.

A Great Canal to Be Built by the
Ottawa, Ont., March 22— There is a bill
before the Dominion Parliament to incor
porate the North American Canal Com
pany, backed by American and Canadian
capitalists. The capital is 510,000,000. The
object of the company is to build a wide,
deep canal, with the fewest possible locks,
between Lake Erie and the seaboard. The
canal would be so wide and deep that the
largest steam vessels could steam through
it at full speed. There are to bo but
seven locks between Lake Eiieand the ter
minal-, and but four between Montreal and
New York, nnd the locks would move two
vessels at the same time, one ascending, the
It is proposed to obtain a charter from the
State of New York and make the canal from
Lake Cbamplain to tide water ln the II id
son River. No Uuited Stales charter will
be required, as the work will be entirely
within the State of New York.
A vessel leaving Lake Erie would descend
to the Niagara an.l Lake St. Francis, pass
via tho Chateaugay and St. Louis sections
and Lake St. Liuis and Lachine canal to
Montreal. Her time would be sixty-two
hours. If destined for New York, the total
time would be sixty hours, and she would
continue a southerly course via the Cha
teaugay section at Lake Cbamplain and the
Hudson canal and river.
WAR IN ULSTER.
Certainly Some Serious Preparations
Are Being Made.
London, March 22.— A correspondent of
the Daily Telegraph who has been traveling
in Ulster writes that preparations have
gone so far that nothing can prevent blood
shed in case the home-rule bill be passed.
Despite the denials of Motley, Chief Secre
tary for Ireland, the correspondent says that
it is certain the military authorities are seek
ing barracks accommodations In Belfast for
a considerable body of troops, and the names
of officers who have been engaging the quar
ters, and the property-owners who have
been approached, be adds, could be given, If
necessary, to prove tho assertion.
The guarantee fund Intended for the war
chest of the men of Ulster Is swelled daily
by large contributions, as the liberality of
persons even not appealed to for aid has
surpassed all expectations. Kach of four
eminent Irishmen, says the correspondent,
subscribed $50,000, and the Mayor of Belfast
has given $10,000. The total amount sub
scribed is already more than £1.000,000.

London. March 22.— Government
bill to establish parish councils passed to
its first reading in the Commons to-day.
The bill met with almost unanimous ap

not disposed to quarrel with its principle.
While it is democratic in character, whicii
was unexpected even by the most ardent of
parochial reformers, it overjoys the radicals.
The bill will be immensely popular in the

much agricultural support. The woman's

BRANDS IT AS A LIE.
Irving M. Scott Talks About the
There Is Not One Word of Truth in the
Story That Has Been Pub
Special to TJIK MoRN-NY, C_._.£_
New Y.u.i., March 22.— Irving M. Scott
of tho Union Iron Works of San Francisco
says that the published attacks that have
been made upon his company regarding the
condition of the Monterey are malicious
lies. Mr. Scott is indignant fit the pub
lished reports about the condition of the
vessel and Us boilers, and he says that the
ship is in perfect condition and ready to go
to sea at any mouieut.
Scott was seen at the Holland House by
a Tribune reporter to-day and said that the
story as published in the East was absolute
ly ful.e. The Monterey Dad two trials, and
tbe pilch of her screws was altered and
everything was done which was required to
make her a success.
■She exceeded her horse-power by 400 for
two hours, aud during the last two hours,
owing to the inability to keep the circular
grates of the coil boilers in as gocd condi
tion as the Scotch boilers, steam pressure
fell off so that she averaged less than was
The statement about all further trial
trips being called off Is absolutely fals«. and
the Monterey lies at tiao navy-yard in per
fect condition and ready to go to sea at any
time as far as her machinery is concerned.
in regard to the Navy Department supply
ing the Monterey with tubular boilers, it is
not true. In fact the Monterey was de
signed to have two Scotch and four tubular
boilers of the type which proved best upon
the experimental trial.
The conditions of this trial were
thoroughly advertised, and all builders of
tubular boilers were requested to forward
types of their boilers to the navy-yard at
Brooklyn, where they would bo correctly
tested by a board, of which ex-Eugineer-in-
Chlef "Loring was president. Of Iho boilers
submitted for trial the Ward holler proved
the test in every respect, as experien on
board the Monterey has justified.
One false statement about the Ward bail
ors was, that on the occasion of tlie trial of
the Monterey the evident Inability of tho
vessel to develop the required horse-power
caused the contractors to push firing on the
Ward boilers. So well was this firing con
ducted that before the firemen were aware
of it the steam pressure bad jumped to 280
pounds to the square inch.
The steam gauges of the Scotch boilers
ha*! prior to this been registering 160 pounds
pressure and thereabouts, when suddenly,
to the consternation of the firemen at the
furnaces of the Utter boilers, the hands of
the steam gauges shot round to tbe 25C
mark. The Intense pressures registered
were duo to the Ward boilers. The steam
of the latter connected direct with tbe
In regard to the statement about tbo
pressure of steam being 200 pounds. it is
ridiculous, and the statement that the
Scutch boilers were suddenly subjected to
a pressure of 290 pounds from the steam of
the Ward boilers ls not only false but ab
surd. There is a reducing valve to the coll
boilers on the steam pipe, which only al
lowed the steam to pass iuto the main steam
pipe at the same pressure at which it came
from the Scotch boilers.
The steam was carried high in the Ward
boiler to prevent foaming, and for no other
reason, and the reducing valve was used to
equalize the difference in the coll boilers
and tho pressure of steam in the Scotch
boilers. It Is self-evident that had the
boilers carried 230 pounds of steam the
Monterey would have exceeded the required
horse-power for two hours with an average
pressure less than 100 pounds.
The other statements published are de
nied in detail, and .Mr. Scott says: "We
challenge the romancer who makes these
assertions to produce bis eye-witnesses. Fur
one such authority we promise him a hand
some bonus, as I know we can prove him to
be a liar."

HELPING MR. CLEVELAND OUT.
How the New Yorkers Would Raise
Revenue and at the Same Time
Special to TnE KoBXC.9 Call.
New York, March 22.— The special com
mittee of the Reform Club of this city has
completed the draft of a bill which, when
perfected, will bo urged upon Congress os
a substitute for the present tariff laws and
the fulfillment of the pledges under which
the Democracy obtained control of Ihe
national Government. The general princi
ples upon which tho proposed tariff is
framed in the main are as follows: Crude
material in general is made free of duty. la
taxing other articles the general object has
been to fix such rates as would produce the
largest amount of revenue in a series of
years consistent with large Importations,
the purpose of obtaining the largest reve
nue, however, to be limited by the consid
eration of the welfare and necessity of the
people at large and especially of the poorer
classes. All the duties are made strictly
ad valorem, except some of those which are
levied as compensatory for internal revenue
taxes upon similar articles produced at
In order to insure the perfect administra
tion of an ad valorem tariff it is essential
that the rates of duty upon a great mass of
articles should be kept nt very moderate
figures, and upon other articles experience
has shown that duties cannot be raised
above 25 per cent without offering danger
ous incentives to fraud, although a few
articles of luxury may be exiepted from tho
operations of thee general rules. All
foreign articles which, If made here, would
be subject to internal revenue taxes must,
of course, be subject to at least an equal
As to liquors and tobacco the duties upon
them should be made with a view of ob
taining the creates: possible amount of rev
enue without any concern as to whether we
give or withhold protection to the domestic
producer. Yielding in part to the popular
opinion that silk is a luxury the club has
placed silk manufactures generally at 20 per
cent. Silk yarns, thread and sewing silk
are placed at 20 per cent, at d spun and
thrown silk nt 15 per cent, leaving raw silk
All forms of crude metal, not merely in
ores but in pig iron, ingots ami bars, with
the exception of iron and steel, are made
free of duty.
The duty upon woolens and worsted
manufactures of every description is placed
at 25 tor cent.
Leather gloves and all other gloves, ex
cept silK, are placed at 25 per cent on the
Tin plates should certainly rot be taxed
more than 20 per cent, and perhaps not
more than 15 per. cent.
Manufactures of wood in most finished
forms are placed at 20 per cent in tha
schedule, as are also all buttons, except
metal or glass.
Most provisions are made free of duty,
but some which partake in a mild degree of
the nature of luxuries are put in the 20 per
cent schedule, while bread. luffs arc mostly
made free. Potatoes are left subject to a
duty of 15 per cent.
I . eaiic books could not be admitted
without the consent of the domestic pub
lisher, and foreign books copyrighted here
could not be admitted at all. On the other
hand, so long as paper-binding materials
an 1 machinery are taxed it is not just to
make competing books free. The demand
for revenue may turn the scale, and 10 per
cent would probably be the revenue duty.
It would be extremeiy desirable to have
no specific free list, but to make everything
free which 1- not made expressly subject tn
duty. All articles upon which the revenue
collected is too small to pay for its collec
tion, and upon which it is not probable lhat
any mere reduction of rates would produce
a substantial revenue, are placed on the
The club is satisfied that the proposed
tariff would produce an immediate revenue
of $120,000,000, if not more. If the existing
duty cf half a cent per pound on refined
sugar should be retained it is suggested lhat
a specific duly of seveu-sixteenths of a cent
per pound might be imposed on raw sugar,
whicii would produce an additional revenue
of probably 815,C00,000, besides reducing the
bounty by 82,000,000. To this, however, one
member of the committee is entirely op
posed and three express no opinion.
The amount of revenue which would be

And Then a Mob Took Him Out and
Dcs Moines, March 22.— A brutal tragedy
was commuted atlliteman, a mining town
on tlio Chicago, Burlington Hint Quincy
Railroad, in Monroe County, to-day. Wil
liam Frazier, a miner, whoso wife left him
a few days ago on account of drunkenness,
went to where she was staying and killed
her and her sister, Mrs. Smith, who ran to
Mrs. Krazier's assistance. Mrs. Frazier had
a knife run through her and died immedi
ately. Mrs. Smith ran into the room where
she heard her sister screaming and was in
stantly stabbed in the breast, dying In a
few moments. The brute then made an
attack on his child, mutilating it. As soon
as the facts of the tragedy became known
public indignation was aroused and Frazer
was lynched by an angry mob. Great ex
citement prevails in the mining town, but
no further trouble is feared.
The detail* of the affair show il to have
been one of the most horrible crimes ever
committed in the West. Frazier went to
the house and entered the room where bis
wife was with her little child.
But few words passed between them when
Fra/.ierdiew a lar.je knife and advanced to
ward the unfortunate woman. It was then
that she uttered the scream for help that
brought her sister to the room. The word
had hardly left her lips when the knife was
plunged into her heart and the woman fell
to the lloor a corpse.
Then, turning on Mrs. Smith, Frailer
stabbed her repeatedly in the breast. The
Infant child was next attacked, and with
one sweep of the sharp knife the inhuman
monster almost severed one of Its limbs.
Not satisfied with this he cut It again in the
arm before leaving the house.
lt can hardly recover. Frnzier did not
succeed in getting far from the scene of thei
tragedy and the mob of avengers had little
difficulty in finding him.

Toledo. Ohio, March 22.— The hearing
ot the Hake Shore strike case in the United
States Circuit Court was continued this
afternoon. J. B. Watson, a Like Shore
engineer and a member of the brotherhood
grievance committee, who had been sum
moned to bring into court all the rules and
laws of the order on the subject of boy
cotts, was present, but he furnished nothing
but a set of by-laws that threw no light on
the secret work of the brotherhood. The
witness stated most emphatically that he
knew no other secret laws governing tha
strike quest on, and Lawyer Hind re
marked that Chief Arthur had furnished a
rule which the witness had not mentioned.
Rule 12, whicii Is as follows, was then read:
"That hereafter where an issue is sus
tained by tha Grand Chief and carried
into effect by the Brotherhood of Locomo
tive Engineers, it shall be recognized as a
violation of his obligation for a member of
the brotherhood who may be employed on

adjacent to said railway, to handle prop
erty belonging to said railway or system in
any way that may benefit said company
with which tho brotherhood Is at issue,
until the grievance or issue, of whatever
nature or kind, be amicably settled."
Watson's explanation, when this was
read, was that be had not properly under
stood the questions of the attorneys for the
Another f,',ct that will have great bearing
on the case was made known yesterday
when it was shown that of all tbe strikers
cited to appear only two were members of
the brotherhood. Affidavits were Intro

strikers, in which each affiant swore that
he resigned from the employ of the com
pany before reading Judge Rick's order,
and that he quit work of his own free will
and not at the solicitation of the brother
Watson was recalled and after a great
deal of evasion admitted that any member
of the brotherhood who refused to strike
