LONDON , Sept. 21. A special dispatch
from Berne says : Major George F. Curtis
one of the assistant librarians of the congress
gross of the United Slates , residing at thi
Arne , Washington , D. C. , has been arrested
by Iwo delectlves al Iho hotel at whlcl
ho was stopping In Grlndelwald , thirty-five
miles from this city. Ho was thrown Into
Jail at Intcrlaken , searched , all his money
and papers were seized , his baggage was
ransacked and ho was kept In prison untl
late tonight , when a director of police ar
rived at Interlakeji from Berne and Mr
Curtis was released.
H appears that the outrage was the re
suit ot police stupidity , Jlr. Curtis being
mistaken for a criminal who Is wantei
by the Swiss police. In addition to his pass
port Jlr. Curtis carried a circular letter of
Introduction from the secretary of state
of the United Stales. He has lodged a com
plaint against his treatment with the consul
of thu United States who Is now making a
thorough Investigation of the matter.
A spccl'il dispatch from Ilcrno asserts thai
Iho Swiss police made a second blunder In
Iho cuso of George E. Curtis , and rearrcstci'
him on his arrival at Geneva. He was de
tained at his hotel for only a few hours , still
the mistake wns rectified. The man for
whom tha police mistook Mr. Curtis is one
Schooner , who is wanted by the Monte
Video police on a charge of procuring girls
for Immoral purposes.

be a hard fight In Wnpcllo county agalnsl
the efforts of silver democrats to oust soumi
money democrats who were appointed by the
board ot supervisors of that county to places
on the election board for Ihe fall clccllnn.
Mr , Rogers lives In lhat counly and has been
accused of pulling up the whole scheme.
Ho says the sound money democrats sub
mitted lo the board of supervisors a list of
well known democrats and Ihe silver
democralb also recommended a list. The
Miuervlsors looked them over and found on
the list submitted by the silver committee a
number of notorious populists and several
republicans. On the sound money list were
none but well known democrats. The board
concluded thai the sound money list came
nearer to complying with the requirements
of the statute , which gives the minority of

the 16th and 16th of the present month. The

Governor Matthews made the presentation

and the officers and men ot the Indiana
Ho said :
"Captain Evans : We arc here today , rep
resenting the citizens ot a great Inlnm
state , to greet you on tno tea and to ex
press In part a grateful recognition of an
honor conferred upon the etale which Justly
holds our devotion. Indiana felt truly lion
orcd when this beautiful vessel and pow
erful vehicle of war was christened will
her name , and yet with pardonable pride
citizens of Indiana feel that we could place
upon her massive sides or llont from her
masthead no prouder name. A great ship
n triumph of the Ingenuity of man , shoulc
well bo coupled with a great stale , whcso
greatness rests upon the generous gifts of
God and their wise development and en
nobling UEO by man. You , sir , to whom as
commander wo bring this tribute of oui
people , eo truly expressive of their cul
ture , their generosity and their patriotism
we beg you to accept for the good ahl ]
Indiana , for the uce of yourself , your oltt-
ccra nnd those who may worthily conn ,
after you to walk these- docks , beneath the
flag of the free American citizen , whether
upon the land or the sea.
"This gift was prompted and encouraged
by the highest sense of patriotism , contrib
uted as It was by tellers on the farm and
In the workshop , by men In the professions
by citizens of every vocation , high and low
rich and poor , and last ; but not least , bj
the children of our schools , where carlj
are taught the lessons of a sublime devo
tion to country , a supreme reverence for
Its laws and Its flag. "
Assistant Secretary ot the Navy McAdoo
responded.
When Mr. McAdoo had finished there were
shouts for General Harrlon. Very re
luctantly the cx-presldcnt ; walked into the
center of the crowd and delivered an en
tertaining and humorous speech. Ho said
Ladles nnd Gentlemen : I nm more than
delighted to be here today oh board the
Indiana , which Is without.'doubt the creut-
est ship In our lleet , or In the lleeta of nnj
other nation. I um glnd nlso to bo here thla
afternoon , because of lha fact that I nm
a sort of a grandfather to the Indiana , and
I confoHS this the mor0 readily because she

tion to have some Influence with tlie secre
tary of the navy , 1 told'him J uould like
to have the best ot the American navy
named after Indiana and I see my wishes
have- been very kindly fuUlllcd. Today
America stands abreast'ofnll other nations
In gun manufacture , nnd ulilp building.
England's bulwarks wijre old walls of oak ,
but today sbo must' of necessity have a
navy fully three times stronger than any
otlfor "nation In the world. We do not need
such an enormous navy , but still wo must
take care of our people. We have- them
scattered here and thpro throughout the
world and a million men/ could not tnkc
care of them ; but , with ships such as. , this
one , we can easily deeJnro"our power and |
If necessary , all commanders In our navy
will hnvp to clear deqlts to protect Amer
icans and their interests.
Our foreign policy has not been a sensa
tional one , but our sympathy has gone out
lo every country In the world which has
been or Is struggling for freedom. There
Is a hemisphere here In which wo have n
deep and very friendly Interest. Wo don't
want to seize other territories , but we
want kindly relations which will be profita
ble to them and oursejves. Wo have a wa
termelon here , nnd If It ! s to be sliced , we
are not golni ? to let anybody on the outside
cut It up. Our people are holding con
gresses of arbitration , which arc all very
well In their way , but you will agree with
me when I say that demands for Indemnity
are never made from 'a country which has
battleships like this. These ships , how
they do reinforce n diplomatic note.
Then , turning to Captain Evans , General
Harrison , pointing his left hand toward the
silver said : "With Governor Matthews of
Indiana In favor of the white mctul and our
distinguished editor , Jlr. Williams , In favor
of ttu gold standard , I am'glad ; to say that
here Is a mixture which will never reach
the mint. This , Captain Evans , Is free , and
In all that this means , Indiana Is surely a
free silver state. "
A hearty peal of laughter and hand-
clapping followed the last remarks of the
cx-pre&idcnt , and whllo they might be mis
construed. It was very evident that General
Harrison had no Intention of placing Indiana
politically In the free sliver column.
Throughout , his speech was brlmfull of wit
nnd humor , and when he was about to finish
ho called on those present to give "three
cheers for thn good ship Indiana , her officers ,
men and thb flag she carried above her. "
Cheers were given with'a will , then Captain
Evans shouted : " .My lads'give three cheers
for those good friends of ours who have
given us this silver. " This was responded
to with cheers that fairly startled the guests.
Dinner was then served.
The silver service consists of thirty-eight
pieces , being a full dinner service and tea
scl. The center pleco weighs 207 ounces.
It Is ten Inches high and twenty-eight Inches

PARIS , Sept. 21. The United States am

hayo received a Icller from P. J. 11. Tynan ,
Ihe alleged dynamite consplrnlor , now In
custody nl Boulognc-Sur-Mcr , dalcd Tues
day , September 15. Tynan wrote thai ho
arrived In the United States March , 1S83 ,
that shorlly after England demanded his
extradition and lhat the United States re
fused It on the ground that the offense
alleged wns purely political. In April , 1SS8 ,
Tynan conllnucd , ho wns nalurnlUcd by
Judge Daly. lie now resides , he wrote ,
with-his wife , children and two servants
In a villa on the Hudson , nnd he referred
to Judge Fitzgerald and Judge Roger Pryor
Ashford.
Referring to his presence In Franco nt
this time , Tynan says that he left New
York on a European tour and that on being
Informed that ho was shadowed by Scotland
Yard detectives ho traveled under nn as
sumed name and went to Italy , Belgium
and Franco , and was booked lo return to
Now York on September 10.
Further , Tynan pledged his honor that
ho did not take part in any affair ot a
political nature whllo lit France and that
he had not done anything beyond the or
dinary sightseeing and observation of the
common American tourist. He appealed to
Mr. Eustls to Intercede with the French
government not to surrender him to Eng
land as such a surrender would mean cer
tain death to him. In conclusion , Tynan
wrote , " 1 am sure that the gallant nation
that Irishmen gave Fontcnoy to blazon on
their banners will not help England by my
surrender. If you will graciously urge my
request , your excellency , upon the French
government you will not only receive my
thanks but that of millions ot the Irish all
over the globe. "
Mr. Eustls Immediately notified the French
government of the receipt of the letter and
of the fact that Tynan Is an American citi
zen. The British embassy hero has not
yet received from London the formal de
mand for Tynan's extradition and the
French foreign ofllco refuses all Information.

HARRISBUIia. Pa. , Scpl. 21. Governor
HnslliiRs tonight signed a pardon for John
Bardslcy , former city treasurer of Philadel
phia , who on July 2 , 1S91 , was scnlenced
lo flfleen years In Ihe penitentiary for nils-
approprlallng over $600.000 of clly nnd state
moneys , whllo occupying his official po
sition. The governor gives no reason for
his action , although It Is Ihoughl his de
cision wn * hastened by the fact that Itard-
slcy wns slrlcken wllh paralysis of the lefl
side on Thursday last. The pardon wns
mailed lonlght lo Warden Cnssldy of Ihe
Eastern ncnilcntlary and Bnrdslcy will be
fct free tomorrow. The flnnnrlnl panic of
Ihp summer of 1S91 , which wrought Bard-
sley's downfall , wns one ot Ihe worsl this
counlry has ever suffered. 11 began with
the sudden collapse of the Keystone bank
and the flight of Its president , Gideon W.
Marsh , who Is still a fugitive from Justice.
The Spring Garden bank was the nexl lo
close Its doors and the Kennedy brothel's ,
Its president and cashier , were sent lo
prison for Icn years. Cashier Law
rence of Iho Keystone was given
seven years nnd was pardoned about two
months ago by President Cleveland. In those
two banks Bardslcy had dcposlled hun
dreds ot thousands of state money and
city funds under an arrangement by which
It was charged , he and the olllcers named ,
reaped personal profit. Unfortunate stock
speculation primarily caused Bardslcy's
ruin , although U has been repeatedly urged
lhat he was little moro Ihnn a scapegoat
for worse sinners. Ho resigned from his
ofllco on May 21 , 1S31 , nnd the financial
crash followed. The Bradford Mills com
pany , a big concern of which he was an
officer , went to the wall , the two banks
went with U , and so did a large number of
Einaller Inslltutloni. Bnidsley wns promptly
arrested with the others of those Involved
who could be caught , nnd on July 2 the
sentence wns Imposed. An examination by
a committee selected from both branches
of the council finally succeeded In straight
ening out. so far as Is possible , the tangled
skein resulting from Ihe peculations. The
agitation for Bardslcy's pardon has been
going on for a considerable time nt the In
sllgatlon of prominent citizens who believed
Uardslcy wns moro sinned against than
sinning. The principal plea presented In
favor of the pardon was Hint ot Ihe pris
oner's falling health , nnd there was nbund
ant medical testimony brought before Ihe
board of pardons to prove that he was prac
tically In a state of collapse , and , If con
tinned In confinement , could live but n
brief time. The board recommended the
granting of the pardon about two weeks ago.

LEADVILLK Colo. . Sept. 21. Five dead
bodies lying nt the morgue ami Unit a
dozen wounded , with damage to property
to the amount ot $25,000 are tlio vlslblo
effects of lust night's lawlessness. It la
believed that when nil Is known the list
ot dead and Injured will considerably ex
ceed these figures.
Everything Is quiet now , the camp bcltift
practically under military rule. The fifth
nainL- was added to the death Hat at I !
o'clock this evening by the discovery of the
body of Michael Uausherty on the ground
near the Kir-molt mine , where he fell In the
attack of the rioters upon the Emmclt
whllo Hushed with their victory nt the Cor-
onado. There were many people In upper
windows and on house roofs , provided with
night glasses , who In the brilliant moon
light , wns the attack on the Emmctt and the
repulse of the rioters. These watchers say
that the first , volley from the mine was de
livered at close rnngo and that the attacking
party fell like grain before the sickle. How
many met the fate of Daugherty It may ro-
malti for tlmo and search of long-abandoned
shafts In that vicinity to tell. It now seonm
that the rioters dragged away their dead
and wounded. The story of the defense ot
the Emrnntt Is a thrilling one. Easily ac
cessible and surrounded only by a light
board fence , It seems wonderful that It
was not quickly overwhelmed , Its men
slain and the buildings demolished , Rut
the fifteen buckshot found In Daugherty's
body and the story ot the fearful effect of
the first volley from the mine tells how
quickly the rioters lost stomach for the
bloody business , Had this mine been blown
up the great pumps which drain It nnd
many other mines would have been de
stroyed and the ensuing damage frightful
to contemplate.
DESTROYS PUBLIC SYMPATHY.
Thin moii.lr.K's riot and particularly the
attack upon the fire department has de
stroyed much of the sympathy-for the strik
ers and this fact was evidenced nt n largely
attended meeting of representative citizens
this afternoon. The proceedings were se
cret , but It Is understood stringent meas
ures were decided , upon. Two companies of
state militia from Pueblo and Crlpplo Creek ,
all under command of Colonel McCoy , ar
rived at 4:50 : this afternoon and are now on
duty. Gcreral Brooks , with several other
companies , will arrive during the night.
The damage ut the Coronado by the burn
ing of the oil tanks , boiler house uud
machinery Is now estimated at $20,000 , on ,
which Is $12,500 Insurance. The houses
burned were valued at $3OGO , with no In
surance. Despite the presence of troops
and the unusual quietness of the streets ,
there la a very uneasy feeling prevalent , It
being asserted that there arc GOO rlllcs III
the hands of the strikers , whoso repeated
threats against the military are recalled
with alarm. It Is the r.eneral belief , however -
over , that there will bo no further troubla
unless the managers begin Importing min
ers.
ers.Tho first attack was mudo upon the Cor
onado , which Is In the city , being only half
a dozen blocks from the poslofflce and sur
rounded by residences. The Coronado uhaft- <
house was built on n largo embankment ,
enclosed by logs , anil the machinery la
fifty feet above the street level. A heavy
plank barricade was erected around the
machinery and shafthousc when the mlncn
resumed operations last month and the
liouso was well stocked with provisions ,
Winchesters and ammunition. Beyond as
saults on worklngmen seen coining from
the mine at uivcrs times , no overt acts of
violence had been attempted against thla
mine until at 1 o'clock this morning ,
when a few bullets struck tlio barricade
nul the men on guard prepared for action.
It was a nlf.'ht uttai-U upon the property.
Judging from the Hounds of the fighting ,
It camu from the cast. There was no con
fusion , no crawl on the street. The first
Intimation which those down town received
of the trouble was n number of shots.
BULLETS SUJW AT FIRST.
The shots ramo scattered at first , then
faster and faster. All the streets west ol
[ Joronado were diverted with the exception
> t three or four persons attracted by the
shooting. Suddenly , after twcnty-flvo min
utes of firing , n sheet of ( lame burst out ,
Ti.I lowed by a terrible ) detonation , The at
tacking party was using dynamite , The
llrlng then scorned to slack up slightly , Oc
casionally a bullet wcnl through the air
mill then o sheet of llamo fiom Eighth or
Ninth stiects. It was evident that on at
tempt was being inailu to lire the property.
Easl of the engine house are several
tanks of fuel oil and the attack wan con-
ccntiated on this point. Thnro was a sheet
cf C.ame and a spulterlng UH though ot
blazing powder. The engine room was la
HamcB. A few moments later anil tlio clang
of the fire engines was heard coming up the
street , lint It WHS not for ( hem to save
the Coronudo. It UUH marked for dcslruo
tlon and armed men luld the flri-mcn at
bay. When the hose curt reached tha ror
ner the hoie was being unreeled and tha
marshal and his men were getting read/
for action when three men appeared fron ]
around the corner and compelled the flro *
men with leveled rllU'S ' to stop work.
Meanwhile the llumc-s grow fiercer ami
llcrccr. The men In the shaft house wera
finally driven from their fort , but fought
to the last. As they ran over the high
trestle work a dozen Bhotn were fired , but
the men reached the dump In safety nna
escaped.
Ily this tlmo a largo crowd had gathered *
itindreds ready to assist , but held at bay
> > ' the rioters and firebugs who were con
; ealed near the building , Hut presently , a
ihe sheds of llamu rolled over thu build *
lugs. It was apparent that unless there wag a
[ linoly action the buildings In that vicinity
ivoro doomed.
The firemen rallied , ami by this lima
nindrcds of cltlzenu , armed with rifles , up-
ma red and guarded the fire department
mil volunteers. All attention was devoted
lo waving houses In mo vicinity , but In
