SAN FRANCISCO , Aug. 19. The Examiner
/inbllHliea on Interview with Lord llamlolph
Churchill , In which ho denies the story that
lie was a victim of morphine nntl snys that
report was maliciously circulated through
"I have suffered acutely , " he explained ,
"from nervous prostration and Insomnia ,
brought on by the extreme tension of public
nffalrs and constant attcnt'on ' to party In
terests long after I should liavo abjured
public speaking. I feel \ery much better
now than when I left England. My appetite
Is excellent and I deep well , BO that I have
no doubt that when my tour Is completed
I shall bo able to return homo and re-enter
politics , entirely restored. The Har Harbor
Incident was entirely fictitious and the pur
ported Interview with \V. 0 Ibert , formerly
of the Gloucestershire cricket eleven , pub
lished In a Chicago journal , was a fabrica
tion f re in beginning to end. I may say once
and for nil that my Illness has resulted from
overwork. Acting against the advice of my
physicians , I continued to make public
speeches until 1 broke down. The trip to
South Africa was mode In the hope of re
cuperation , but the fatigue of the journey
was hardly beneficial. America has done mo
a deal of gacd. I like the country and people
end I have gained every day In strength
nnd mental equipoise during the past two
months. "
Lord Churchill's vis t to India Is of a
semi-official character. He has letters from
her majesty , the queen , as well is from
the prince of Wales , and his principal mls-
Blon Is to look Into matters regarding the
loyal rajahs.
"Notably , I shall visit , " said Lord ChurchIll -
Ill , "tho maharajahs of Avar Jalghur , Udal-
pur and Jodhpur In Kajpootana , In whoso cap-
' Hals are many celebrated Jain temples of
great antiquity. This Is not my first trip
to India. I visited the empire some years
ago and was piloted about by Sir Lepel
Grlnin. Dut I did not see half of what I de
sired , and this tlmo I shall proceed as far
as British Murmah. "
These loyal rajahs , whom Lord Churchill
Intends visiting , are young men of the high
est Importance In the Indian empire. They
have all been educated at Mayo college ,
which Is near AJmlr. This Is an experiment
of the government Intended to glvo the young
rajahs of Itajpootnna an English training. It
was founded by the earl of Mayo and has had
n. most powerful effect upon the political
aspect of India. In speaking of Lord Rose-
bcry , he said :
"It seems to mo that his present position
might remind one of the well known jest
in Punch years ago about Lord Beaconsfield :
Why Is the present government likely to
fall ? ' 'Oecauxe Its head Is dizzy. '
"There Is no doubt that Itoscbory made his
mark when acting as Gladstone's lieutenant
In the famous Midlothian campaign. Then It
was that ho realized ho had some backing In
the person of Mr. Gladstone and without
doubt aspired to the premiership. Mr. Glad
stone's support has been the key to Itose-
l > ery's success. "
In parting , Lord Churchill said : "I trust
tint you realize that I am not the mental
and physical wreck \\hlch the American
newspapers have described. Had I been I
\\oiild not have attended the royal academy
dinner a few days before leaving England.
I am on the road to complete recovery , and ,
as I said before , I must before many months
are over ro-cnter the English political
arena. "

connection with the recent great strike a
largo number of railroad men In this city are

claiming they have been placed on the black

or not. About forty of thcso have made pre-
llmlnaiy arrangements to go to the capo of
Good Hope and South Africa and others arc
talking of going to Brazil. Hard ( lines here ,
work elsewhere and cheap transportation
largely Influenced them , iilthough they claim

WASHINGTON , Aug. 19. The final action
of the president on the tariff bill Is the only
thing that stands between the senate and
final adjournment. It Is the general opinion
tint If It were passed upon by the chief
executive adjournment could bo arranged
within a few days. The last of the appropria
tion bills received the final consideration of
the senate during the past week and even
without the passage of the Murphy resolu
tion there would not have been much prob
ability of any general legislation , owing to
the likelihood of there being no quorum.
The last roll call yesterday discovered only
forty-five senators , two more than n quorum ,
In the chamber and the highest number of
the thy was fifty-four. Several have left
blnce , an It Is entirely probable that the ses
sion Monday will open without the number
requisite to do business In the face of ob
jection. It Is probable , therefore , that the
dally sessions from this time forward will
be brief and that only bills to which there
Is no opposition from any senator or over
which there Is no contest v.ill be taken up
The democratic managers hope to have the
bill repealing the provisions In the tariff bill
exemptlnc alcohol used In the arts nnd In
the manufacture of medicinal preparations
Included In the list. There appears llkelihdod
of opposition on the republican side , and If
thTP should be , this bill will necessarily go
over until the next session. The democratic
members of the finance committee also hope
to report the supplemental tariff bills during
the week , but do not expect action on them.
Probably no considerable tlmo will be spent
In rxccutlvo session In confirming nomina
tions to which no one objects.
The house of representatives Is ready to
adjourn tomorrow. Its work has been com
pleted , It Is only awaiting the action of
the senate and of the president. It Is prob
able that It will adjourn from day to day
until congress adjourns. It may be , however ,
that time will be partly occupied by giving
several days to the committees of the house
to consider such business as they care to
bring before the house , but this question has
not been decided. Speaker Crisp , who Is at
Old Point Comfort , will not return until to
morrow morning , nnd Mr. Outhwnltc , one of
the other members of the committee on rules ,
Is out of the ci y and no program will be
arranged until they return.
Tomorrow , under the rules , Is suspension
day , as are also the last six days of the ses
sion , but as a resolution for adjournment
will not be passed until the president acts
on the tariff bill , the rules with reference
to suspension days will not go Into effect
until the date of adjournment has been fixed
by both houses.
Cleveland ItofusoH to Vote or Approve thn
WASHINGTON , Aug. 19. The river apd
harbor bill , carrying $11,000.000 , became a
law at midnight last night without President
Cleveland's signature , the legal limit ot ten
days havlnc expired within which he could
sign or veto It. It Is the third time In his
two terms that a river and harbor bill has
become a law without his approval , the onlv
other bill of this kind submitted to him
having been vetoed. Fears were expressed up
to a late hour today that the present bill
would b ; vetoed , as Mr. Clevland made It
known to the river and harbor managers
several months ago that he did not want
the total of the bill to exceed $10,0 0,000.
The appropriations were pared down In the
house , but the senate raised the amount. The
conferees finally reduced It to $11,478,130 ,
and thus It was agreed to in both houses.
Aside from the amount carried by the bill
the sundry civil appropriations bill also car
ries JS.400,000 for river and harbor con
tracts , making a total for this work of $19.-
878,130. An Important feature of the new
bill Is that It authorizes no new contracts.

In response to an Inquiry , Mr. North stated
that while prices are now very low , he Is of
the opinion that the coming season would
show a marked improvement over last year.
There Is a number of reasons why the
present low prices cannot stand , one of them
being the almost tolal failure of the crops
Is several of the eastern and middle stales.
The callle In those sections must of neces

WASHINGTON , Aug. 19 Hepresentallvo
Joseph G. Cannon of Illinois , the senior re
publican member ot the present appropriations
committee of the house , and who was
chairman of the appropriations com
mittee during the Fifty-first con
gress , has prepared n statement
which ho will submit to the house selling
forth a comparison from his standpoint ot the
appropriations for Ihe present and the Fitly-
first congress. It Is captloncd , "Pension np-
proprlatlbns reduced $29,099,504. Total ot
other appropriations Increased. "
Mr. Cannon says : "Mr. Cleveland by his
estimates asked congress to appropriate for
the public service of the coming fiscal year ,
Including permanent appropriations , $520-
CG2,840 and congress has appropriated for
such service $190CGS,3G9. This In round
numbers Is $30,000,000 less than the president
asked for public service.
"A comparative statement of appropriations
made at this congress for the fiscal year
ending Juno 30 next with appropriations made
at the first and second session of the last
congress ( Fifty-second ) nnd at the first and
second s'sslon of the Kitty-first shows that
the appropriations this year are greater by
$ J7,2G8bG8 than wcro those made by the first
session of the Fifty-first , or Reed congress
The statement also shows tha appropriations
made this year are $28,835,989 less than those
made at the second tcsslon of the last , or
Fitly-second congress. This reduction Is cov-
ersd by the Item for pensions nlone. There
was appropriated this year for pensions $29-
099,504 less than was appropriated last year.
It will be noticed , Iherefore , Uio appropria
tions this year , excepting pensions , are
greater than the appropriations made last
year by $263,515. The tolal approprlallons
for Ihe Fifty-first , or Reed congress , two
years ago , were $988,417,183 , and those for
the Flfty-sscond , or last congress , two years ,
$1,027,104,547. "
Mr. Cannon then rcid Ihe statement Issued
by the Treasury department en July 2 , giving
the expenditures and receipts cf thu govern
ment for the past year and those of the
previous year. Mr. Cannon's statement then
continued : "This statement does not Include
the postal receipts or expenditures there
from , nnd as they balance each other , It Is
not material to state them here. It shews
the receipts of the United States f-r Ihe
twelve months ending June 30 , 1894 , to have
been $88,659,292 less than the receipts for
the fiscal year ending June 30 , 1891. This
statement shows also that the expenditures
for the twelve months ending June 30 , 1894 ,
were $16,884,595 less than for Ihe twelve
months ending June 30 , 1893 ; hut this same
slalemont shows the payment for pensions
made for the year ending June 30 , 1891 , were
$18.180,272 less than they were for the year
ending Juno 30 , 1S93.
"In other words , exclusive of pension ,
President Cleveland , for his full fiscal year ,
expanded $1,295,677 more to carry on the
government thin Vv expended in the final
fiscal year ending with President Harrison.
"There have been many Increases In the
salaries of democratic officials , and especially
In the diplomatic and consular service. The
salary of the first assistant secretary of
state Is increased from $3,500 to $1,500. The
minister to Belgium Is Increased from $7,500
to $10,000. The mln sters to Switzerland and
Portugal are Increased from $3,000 to $6,500
each. The minister to Mexico has had the
salary of his secretary of legation Increased
from $1,800 to $2.650 The ministers to
Nicaragua and CosU Rica for the first tlmo
arc allowed secrelarles of legallon at $1,800
each , while the Bureau of American Re
publics is cut down from $ ' 50.000 to $10,000.
The s'x auditors of the Treasury department

SAN FRANCISCO , Aug. 19. The official
board of the Simpson Memorial church this
afternoon unanimously adopted resolutions ,
which were subsequently endorsed by a ris
ing vote of the largo congregation assembled
at the morning service , statins Iho belief that
the charges against the character of Rev. A.
C. Hirst had been brought by an Irresponsible
adventurer , evidently for the purpose of
blackmail ; that the ofilrlal board , at the re
quest of Dr. Hirst , had some months ago
Investigated these accusations and had found
them to be entirely without foundation. The
members of the church and congregation ex
pressed unswerving confidence In Dr. Hirst's
Chilstlan Innocence of the charges , at the
same time expressing their gratification that
Dr. Hirst had declined Invitations from lead-
Inc eastern churches and had consented to
remain pastor of Uio Simpson church for
another year.

llielr Old l.neiny Appointed Council for San
.Salvador at Trl < oc > ,
SAN FRANCISCO , Aug 19. The Examiner
snyri : San Salvador ha * n new consul In this
clly. Carlos Yrlgoycn has been removed nnd
the place has been given to .Dr. Eustorjo
Calderon , who has been living In San Fran
cisco during the past two years. Dr Cnl-
dcron Is n native of Guatenmli , Ho closely
sympathizes with the pr sent government
and Is n bitter enemy of the Ezctas , by
whom he was tortured as punishment for
tnklng part In a revolution ngnlnst them.
The appointment of Calderon Is the last
move made by Iho Salvadorean government
In the Ezcta mailer nnd In fact one of the
most Important It Is plain that the gov
ernment of San Salvador had good causa to
mistrust Mr. Yrlgoyen. It was believed from
the first that Yrlgoy en was friendly to the
Erelas and It Is thought here his trip to
the cast was partly In their Interest. What
strengthened this belief in the minds of Min
ister Giirman and his asslstanls at Washing
ton hive been Iho lellers nnd tclcgrnms from
residents of this city calling attention lo sev
eral facts In connection with Yrlgoy en and
the Ezetas. The appointment by Yrlgoycn
of Mr Romas ns acting consul was consid
ered by Ihe Salvadoreans hero ns another
attempt to help the Ezetas. On * of the le e-
grams sent to Dr. Guzman was from Dr.
Calderon and It fully outlined the situation
and called particular attention to the ami
cable relations between the con.sul nnd An
tonio Ezeta Mr. Yrlgoycn had served as
consul under Ihe presidency of Carlos Ezeta
and had been highly favored by him. It was
natural that a return of favors should be
made at this time when Antonio was In dlro
peril. Dr. Caldoron also sent n telegram
lo President Gullerrer , In which ho laid the
situation before him nnd offered to ncl ns
consul. Dr Calderon has received a lolu-
gram from President Gulterrc/ which he
said he would avail himself of his services.

that Instead of n large' Chinese army only a

ese. The remainder of the army has. It Is said ,
gone north to join thu northern farces. Skir
mishes are reported to have taken place nt
Plug- Yang , province of Shan-Yc , and a great
battle Is expected to be fought there shortly.
LONDON. Aug 20 A dlspitch from
Shanghai says the Chinese there arc suffering
from a spy mania that his developed among
Chinese officials. All vessels arriving In
Twoo Sung river are boarded by Chinese
naval officers and searched for ppys nnd con
traband munitions of war Two prominent
Japanese have been arrested within the
French concession on an uiifoundtd charge
of spying. They are still detained for trial.
The dispatch further states that n number of
Englishmen and Scotchmen have been obliged
to Icavo the arsenal at Wel-Hal-Wcl owing to
the war. They had been llred nt by the
Chinese guaids and some of them would un
doubtedly have been killed had It not been for
thu protection afforded them by Chinese offi
ce ! s
It Is added that on three successive nights
Jipaneso torpedo bo-its forced the boom
guarding the water entrance to Wcl-Hal-Wol.
They either evaded or countermined the tor
pedoes that had been Hid by the Chinese and
effected entrance to the ports , the
defense of which had heretofore been sup
posed Impregnable. The Jipaneso did not
engage the forts , as It is said they were only
In search of Ir-onnatlon a to the lines to
bo followed In the c\ont of It being decided to
make an attack In force upon the place.
Sickness prevails in both thu Chinese and
Japincso armies. China has acc'ptcd the
offer of Lul Yung I'l , the celebrated ox-chlof
of the Black Flags at Tonquln , who Is now a
naval commodore at Canton , to reorganize
the Black Flags ( o light against Japan.
Mall advices from China show the Chinese
government has prohibited the exportation ot
horses. Horses arc regarded as contraband
of war by Japan. Urgent orders have been
sent from the northern to the bouth < > rn ar

row will say : Several far-seeing Callfornlans
have lately taken steps to form a vvlne syn
dicate to control and regulito the price ot
products of the vineyards. There are nearly
2,000 acres of vines In Callfoinla. The value
of the properly and the cellars nro estimated
at nearly $ SO,000. For sis or seven years
past the vineyards have produced yearly
about 2,000.000 gallons of wine In excess of
the demand and prices dropped till It was
not profitable to pick grapes. The firms In
the syndicate arc : Arped , Hnrasscthy & Co. ;
C. Carpy & Co ; Kohler & . Von Benson ; Koh-
