COLl.lZCTUJi J'OJi TAOVIX.L HAY. Si cal lv California As?ociatki PitEss. Washington, June 14. The state ment that the question of awarding the contract for the bfe armored cruiser, was discussed at a cabinet meeting to-day, is denied by the navy department, on the authority of the secretary. The contract has uot been awarded jet, but will be next week for the 5,500-ton cruiser. The contract will go to the TJniou Iron Works on their bid on Sl,7CO.O0O. For the S,100 ton cruihcr, the re sult is in doubt. Cramp is working hard lohaie his bid accepted on his plans, and itisbtated he now avers, that his plans w ill uot differ mater ially from the government plans. In other words he is working to se cure the contract on hisbid, on his own plans. Tlie impression is that the Union Iron Works will secure this also. There is a belief that the secretary does not want to crowd any of the jards with work, .so that they will be indisposed to bid on the battle ships. In other words, that he wants to in sure open competition on these ves sels, and it is in view of that fact, that the theory has sprung up that he wants to 'divide work on the two vessels recently proposed for, between two huge establishments. Mr. Scott, president of the Union Iron works, bas even if he should get the contract for the cruisers, he could easily take two of the battle ships. Tlie Hoard of Appraisers. Special to Tun Astohi N.l Washington, June 1L Secretary Windom and the President were again in conference to-day, on the subject of appraisers to be ap pointed. It is reasonably sure three have been selected, and that assistant secretary Tichenor will be made sec retary of the board. It is also reason ably sure that the Pacific coast will furnish one member, as it is intended to keep one member out there on duly. The contest for the Pacific coast member lies between apprasers Levy and Tho:njson, at San Fran cisco, with the odd.; in favor ot the latter, owing to his hiroiig politicil backing.

A Concensus ef OplHlen From These Wfae Knew. Special to The Astoeian'.I Washington, June IL At three o'clock on Monday afternoon the sil ver bill comes up for final disposition. A California Associated Press corre spondent has had an interview with a number of senators to-day on the sil ver question and prospects for passing of the - Windom bill,' and from a con census of opinion obtained, the corre spondent believes that the house cau cus measures will pas3 the senate on Monday with the "bullion clause" eliminated. Senator Stewart .has been actively canvassing among the senators and believes the above will be the result. He was not aware of a petition being circulated among senators pledging them to the support of the administra tion incisure but says it was probable, and that of course he would not have been approached on the matter, no thinks however there are not twenty seven senators who have signed any such pledge and furthermore that not ten senators in that body would sign such a pledge. "The house bill will be amended by the senate and passed before 6 o'clock on Monday.' said he. "How will it be amended, do ou think?"' -The bullion clauses ill bo elimin ated and certificates will be made legal tender, despite the report of the finance commUtee, and if this is done it will be a fairly good bill," said he. OPINIONS FROM .BISMARCK. Thliits tlie Kaiser Will Mate a Mis take If He Allies Russia. ax orjxiox or AlOXOR CRISP I. Special by Tho California Associated Pscss. London, Jnne IL Another inter view with prince Bismarck is given to the -world. The prince talks for tlie first time about the triple alliance. His conversation will attract world wide attention. Ho begins by alluding to the rumors about the Eussa-Qerman alliance, and sajs emperor "William will make a mistake in seeking an alliance with Russia, for it might impair the union ot the three central powers who have done so much in years past to preserve the peace ot Europe. As for the triple alliance itself, if not disturbed by outside engagements, he believed it would stand firm. Ap prehension had been expressed about Italy, but so long as siguor Crispi re mained at the heid of the government Italy would not withdraw from the alliance, although there might be some variation in her attitude should a change be made in the cabinet. ADVANTAGES OK TELEGRAPHY. A Kr poller Experience In n Railroad Station liatp at Nldit, The reporter who has been an operator has a decided advantage in getting his copy to the office by tele graph. A ear or two ago one who had a knowledge of tolography was sent lo Dobbs Perry late at night on an important affair. He arrived there at 11 o'clock, had to drive a considerable distance from the station, and it was 1a.m. when he returned to the depot The last train had gone and the telegraph office closed a long time before. A watchman or track walker at the depot said that the operator lived a mile and a half away, and that he was ill anyhotf, and that there was no possibility ot sending anj thing by wire that night. When the watchman had obligingly taken a waik up the track the writer tried the office window, found the catch rather loose, and with the thin blade of a pocket knife soon removed the fastening. To open the window crawl in and connect the wires in the switchboard was the work of a mo ment "X. Y." was called and raised, and the loop to the newbpaper office asked for. Twelve hundred words were sent in before 2 o'clock, without copy, it being neccessary for lack of time to compose the story as it was tele graphed, on tho key. This was done in the dark for fear the watchman would see a light and come back and shoot the reporter for burglary. "O. K." having been received, the reporter went outside, closed the window and spent the remainder of the night gaz ing at the moon and throwing pebbles in tho Hudson.

New Yobk, Juno IL The shipment of S1,000,000 in gold yesterday to Europe, is thus explained. Lately there has been a considerable demand for gold, Trom South American and Egyptian connections with important financial operations, including loans. The purchases of silver in London bore their fruit and the demand for money-there is steadily increasing. The official discount rate of the bank of England is three per cent, but for short loans, the bank is now charging four per cent. Quotations for call loans have risen to three and a half and four per cent within a few days. Any further flow of gold from the Londo4 center, would cause a rise in the bank rate, and possibly create disturbance. The additional sum in Sold is loaded for a Greek loau, and lerliu took occasion to obtain from New York, cold by paying a Uttle extra. This is a full explanation of the transaction.

San Francisco, Juno IL The fourteenth week of tlie great strike of the molders closed to-day with no indications pointing towards a settle ment of their difficulties with the founders association in view. Tho situation remains as it was on the first week of the strike. Since it began the founders continue the importation of molders, to take the strikers places, and it is said the firms are pro pared to continue the same policy. with the expectation of forcing the molders union to succumb. The plan has been successful so far that most of tho foundries, that were compelled to close their operations at the time tho strikers went out have been onabled to continue to manufac ture, and aro now turning out work Which they claim is equal to any work they ever turned out before, and ot a quality that is fully equal to all the requirements of contracts.

The lively rattle of wheels and the terrified shouts of a boyish voice, con tinually crying "Whoa, Whoa" com ing past the office of The Astorian, startled the writer who left Ins table and rushed to the door. Sure enough, there was a runaway team crossing Third street, and a frightened boy clinging to the fines, trying to stop tho animal. Hitched to the shafts of a miniature wagon was a very large dog, who had evi dently forgotten that ho was being used as a horse, for his canine nature had usurped the equine and he was rushing for another dog who was try ing to get out of the way. Crossing Third street, the wagon struck the sidewalk by Allen's store, ono wheel was knocked off, the wagon was upset, and dog, boy and wagon rolled in a conglomerated mass of heterogeneous matter until they couldn't bo distinguished "t'other from which." In a second, however, the dog was on his feet again, and with the broken wagon, shafts and harness clinging to him, utterly regardless of his sur roundings and environments, he seized the escaping dog by tlie back ol tlie neck and shook him up lively. The whole affair was about a3 quick as a lightning flash, but it was a highly amusing scene to the few who wit nessed the lively episode. The many people who have seen the matched pictures of a dog in a cart, drawing two children, pursuing and catching a rabbit, can well realize this incident, which was remarkably simi lar. If it could have been witnessed by Capt. Whitcomb or C. J. Trench ard it would have been impossible to stop them laughing for an hour. Not Dctrojed.

A Natal Fonniatioii for a Liilt Honse. niFFICULTZES JX SVZLMVm. A mile from the coast a black rook rises nearly 100 feet from the ootem. It is Tillamook rock. Nature plaoad it there as the foundation, for a light. house. Deep water is all around it. Three sides are precipices. The patk is very steep. On the highest point, after much work, a spot was lerekd sufficient for a lighthouse fifty feet square. The entire surface out of water is hardly equal to a fair-sised town lot. When the wind blows and wares beat upon that rock the 'spray goes over the top and runs down the other side in a torrent. Only when the sea is smooth is it possible for a boat to reach the rock. In October, 1879, fomr workmen, with hammers, drilk, boha, provisions, fuel, a stove and some can vas, were landed on Tillamook. A few days afterward five men and a small derrick were put upon the rock. The foreman of the party was drowned ia trying to make the landing. These nine men suffered for days the discomfort of shipwrecked aailorav When the rain was not falling tfcev spray was dashing over them. Tkey drilled holes in the rook, fastened rintt bolts and tied canvass to the bolts. In this way they managed to sare themselves "from being blown away. The next step was to quarry out a Ht tle nook in the side which afforded mo3t protection from the wind and waves. In this spot they built a shanty and bolted it to the face of the cliff. Next they set about quarrying a flight of steps up the steep side, at the same time leveling off the top to get room for the foundations of the lighthouse. Part of the time they worked on staging hung from the top of the rock with the waves dashing be low them. There were weeks at a time when almost nothing could be done. In January a tornado came. The waves dashed to tho top of the rock and tho wind carried the spray over so that a continuous flood poured down the canvas-covered shanty in which the quarrymen were huddled This lasted for several days. It swept the supplies into the ocean and sare Uhe shanty and its inmates a close calL At tne end of. sixteen days tne nU starved men communicated their eoav dition to the main shore. It was im possible for tray boat to come to the rock in the sea that was running, hot a line was cast loose from the rook and a ship picked it up. This line was fastened to the top of the rock sad to the mast of the ship. Over it sappliss were transferred to the little colony. By May the quarrymen had out down the sharp point of the rook to a height of eighty-eight feet from the sea level and had made a level spot for the lighthouse. Three maso&s were taken out from the mainland. A small engine and some more der ricks were added to the equipment. Ia June the corner stone was laid. Whenever there was a fair day a load of material was taken out The rook, quarried, was hewn into proper blocks before it left the mainland A square, one-story building was constructed for the keeper, with room for the fog signal machinery. From the center of this house the tower was raised forty-eight feet. This put the light 136 feet above the sea level. It was sixteen months after work began when the light was put in operation. Had the light been burning a month earlier an English ship would prob ably have been saved. The Lupata went ashore and twenty lives were. lost within a mile of Tillamook. .As the ship drifted in she passed so close to the rock that the workmen, heard the creaking of the blocks and the com mands of her officers, but the night was pitchy dark. The men on the rock lighted a bonfire to warn the ship but were too late. Back Again. Capt.
