'1But Only Mills and Irby Supported Him,
While Ftfty-two Democrats and Re-
publicans Opposed-He Made a ,
Sarcastic Speech at Gorman.

WASHMOTON, May 26.-When the sen-
Sate met today, for the first time since
he was placed in charge of the tariff bill,
Mr. Harris was not in his seat. The
delay in securing a quorum shut out
the consideration of the Hawaii resolu-
At 10:30, tue tariff debate was re-
sumed. The paragraphs passed over
'yesterday were taken up. The first was
No. 156, relating to the duty on wheels
*of iron or steel, car and locomotive
wheels, etc.
The original Jones amendment in-
creased the rate in the house bill from
*80 to 40 per cent ad valorem. Today
Mr. Vest moved to substitute a specific
rate of 11 cents per pound. The Mc-
Kinley rate is 2j cents per pound.
Mr. Quay supported the Vest amend-&
ment ad preferable to an ad valorem
duty. It was agreed to.
The Paragraph on LXad.
The lead paragraph was then taken
up. The house bill made lead ore and
lead dross dutiable at 15 per cent ad
valorem upon the lead contained therein,
and filed silver lead ores as silver
ores'fre the silver contents exceeded
in value the lead contents, and'admitted
them free of duty. The finance commit-
tee amendment made lead ore dutiable
.atthree-fourths of a cent a pound, and
made silver lead ores dutiable at the
same rate on the contents, according to
sample and essay at the port of entry.
Mr. Dubois offered an amendment which
was accepted by, Mr. Jones, fixing, as the
method of sample and essay, that com-
mercally adopted'in the United States.
Mr. Shoup of Idaho made quite an
elaborate argument in favor of a duty on
argentiferous lead ore, going largely
Into the extent of the silver lead ore
industry in Idaho and other mining
states and territories of the west.' He
contended that the mines of the west
could not compete with the pean labor
of Mexico, and said if silver lead ore
was admitted free of duty from Mexico
$ .almost every silver lead mine in the
,,' United States would be closed. Mr.
-::Bhoup concluded at 12:10 after speaking
y^pr" oi an hour and a half. '
S %, !?a>yas^



he proposed to be consistent in his advo-
cacy of free raw materials, and he pro-
posed to place on record those who were
not consistent.
Mr. Vest, in reply, explained that the
duty fixed wasthe rate of the Mills bill;
that the question of a duty on lead ore
was a question between the miners and
smelters representing the lead trust,
and that as between the two the com-
mittee had discriminated in favor of the
Senators Stewart, Dubois, Dopp, Ald-
rich and Power followed in the order
given. Mr. Dubols criticized Senator
Hill for his championship of the white
lead trust and the smelting combine,
which, he said, was the only interest that
could be benefited by free lead ore, and
spoke of the action of the finance com-
mittee in providing for a duty on this
article and for sampling and assaying
ores at the'port of entry as a generous act
which the people interested thoroughly
Stewart, Aldrich and Others.
Senator Stewart characterized the
course of the committee with respect to
this article. of "importation as discrimi-
nating against the west.
Senator Aldrich declared that the
adoption of the amendment would result
in the destruction of the lead mining in-
terest in several states.
Senator Power devoted his attention
largely to the white lead trust trade.
Senator Dolph made a general attack
*upon the tariff bill.
The vote on Mr. Hill's motion to place
lead ores on the free list was defeated,
yeas, 3; nays, 52.
Messrs. Mills, Hill and Irby were the
only affirmative votes. Mr. Murphy
voted against Mr. Hill's motion.
After the result of the votes was an-
nounced, Senator Hill, rising from his
seat, said:
"I desire to congratulate the distin-
guished senator from Maryland that he
is now leading both sides of the chamber
with great unanimity."
To this Senator .Aldrich replied that
there had never been any doubt on the
Republican side that the senator from
Maryland would be found standing for
protection. At 3 o'clock the senate ad-
Mr. Springer Defines His Views on the
Subject at Some Length.
IPOiAL TO TE omrnzzBN.1
WASHINGTON, May 26.-The proposed
repeal Of the 10 per cent tax on state
banks was taken up in the house today.
Mr. Springer made the principal speech
in opposition to unconditional repeal.
Regarding the question of currency as
only second in Importance to the tariff
at thi! time, he regretted that there was
no fixed and sound policy in reference to
it which would render periods of financial
deprression remote it not impossible, and
proceeded with his subject, announcing
that he would renounce all party con-
siderations -upon,.: the question of the
currency, but would unite with any men
uacn and all Iparies In thie preparation

,xch h sid ws ggati ono-
l ag'.at a-measurASwih-. would
provide a currency that would be always
safe and stable and sufficient to meet all
requirements of trangd and commerce.
Currency System of Other Nations.
Proceeding to examine the banking,
and currency systems' of the other na-
tions of the world, he gave a concise and
succinct history of the bank' of France,
which, he said, was a gigantic monop-
oly. He sketched the bank ef Germany
and the bank of England, and then paid
attention to the national banking sys-
tem of the United states, which hi char-
acterized as utterly inadequate to fur-
nish currency for the people and ineffect-
ual to provide an elastic currency at all.
Another system must' be provided, he
said, but the step toward it must be for-
ward, and not backward. "Under no
circumstances should we return to the
System of state bank circulation which
prevailed before the war," said Mr.
The Argument of Inconvelience.
"It there were no other reason for
opposing a circulating medium issued by
state banks, the argument of inconven-
lance ought to be sufficient. There are ]
ow forty-four states in the Union, and
four more undoubtedly will be admitted ]
in the near future. Each of these states (
would have different laws regulating the
organizationn of banks, and providing ser
ourlty for the circulating notes There
ire over 9,000 banks in the United States
it this time. Assuming that all of theg
states would avail themselves ultimately
)f the right to incorporate state banks
having authority to issue circulating
lotes, and that all existing banks would
,.vail themselves of such authority, the
different kinds of notes which would be
)ut;ln circulation, and their number,
vould be confusing and embarrassing in s
;he extreme to all those engaged in e
,ctive business." c

The History of State Banks. c
He then went at great length into the
history of state banks, and considered

hem in their every relation to the peo- i
le, quoting copiously from legal de- i
isions and speeches of statesmen in

position to them. He considered the-
arious propositions by which a national s
urrency may be issued under the
uthority of the United States govern- 0.
lent. He opposed the loanfhg of money
;o the people and the issuing of cur-
ency to pay government expenses, and
roceeded to explain the measure intro- u,
uced by himself, No. 4960, which. pro- b;
ides for a national currency. He ex- ri
gained its provisions at length, and 12
Aimed that its adoption would eradi- 1s
ate the .evils which now injure the co
nancial fabric of the country. le

A ights of State Bank Issues. tg
After denying that a state bank has ttl
ny more right to issue paper currency

The Operation on His Eye Leaves Him in
Sa Weakened State-Preparations for
the Coming Royal Marriage-The
Princess' Course of Instruction.

LONDON, May 26.-John Burns' re-
fusal to enter the cabinet has given rise
to a rumor that the workmen's member
of parliament contemplates a most sen-
sational move. It is this:
He will move that all members of the
house of commons, all ministers, with or
without portfolios, and all heads of de-
partments shall cease to be directors,
managers or even proprietors of com-
mercial enterprises. This programme
will produce a tremendous row. About
three-fifths of the cabinet officers and
members of parliament are now and
always have been put forward by shai p
business men as directors of their com-
panies-first, to secure an air of respect-
ability, and next to "scoop" the widows
and orphans with funds to invest.
The late John Bright, than whom no
more conscientious man ever lived, once
declared that the most profitable decoys
employed by sharps to catch flats were
peers with the business instinct, and
members of the commons who coupled
with a love'of money a vanity which was
flattered by seeing their names in the
newspapers and prospectuses in capital

Peers in Business Ventures.
When Mr. Gladstone took Mr. Mun-
della into his cabinet, he was well aware
that that Gentleman, to use a pertinent
phrase, was up to his eyes in business
ventures. The fact that so upright a
man as Gladstone did not object to it
showed it was regarded as immnaterial. Yet
wha scandals have arisen from time to
time over the pernicious custom. Nobody
imagines that Mr. Mundella personally
was benefited to the extent of 1 cent by
the disaster which overtook the com-
pany of which he Was a managing direct-
or, yet the; judge of the bankruptcy
court delivered a most scathing rebuke;
to him because he said he had sold some
of his stock. That the court can so
openly rebuke a cabinet minister, Glad-
stone's friend and Rosebery's colleague,
was to imply that he had disposed of
his holdings because he had not faith in
the concern' ito which others qad \ur
turned, at his suggestion probably. .l

With some men the perquisites of (illr
torships are inspiring motives, becaut
in the nature of things they are reqnuI r
to act as lobbyists, which here as el.d
where is a paying business.. t
It is much easier for a member o tg
commons to protect -the interests of hu
corporations than the interests of hr
constituents, if the latter happen not
be in the corporations. Lobbying is
jobbery, and jobbers should be shut
out of lawmaking. These, in a word,
are the fellows Burns is after. In any
event he is likely to show them up and
leave the rest to the people.
Pancess Alix's Coming d Marriage.
Marriage would not be very popular if
all young women had to undergo the or-
deal mapped out for the pretty Princess
Alix of Hesse. ,In order that the princess
may be thoroughly coached, her union
with the czarowitz of Russia has been
postponed until Nov. 10. 11
First, she must learn the Russian lan-
guage. Mlle. Scheinder has been apL-
pointed her teacher. She is the daughter
o>f a general in the 'Russian army, and
caught Grand Duchess Elizabeth Sergius,
Princess Alix's sister, before she mar-
ried Grand Duke Sergius. Next, Miss
Scheinder will instruct her in the cus-
toms of the Greek church into which she
will be ultimately baptized by the great
The clever teacher is now at Balmoral
with her pupil. Then the young princess'
will have to tackle ancient and modern
Greek, or at least to brush up in case
she has already had a tuition in that lan-
;uage. So far as court customs are con-
erned, she could have no greater pre-
,eptress than her grandmother, ,the
ueen and empress of India.
She will have to be a much more apt
pupil than her mother, Princess Alice,,
I she can reach the necessary efficiency
n the six months allotted. Most people
Nould hesitate to attempt the task in
ix months. In plain words, the Hes-
ian princess is,to have a severe period
f study and coaching before she becomes
member of the white czar's family.
Mr. Gladstone's Condition.
While ex-Premier Gladstone is grad-
ally overcoming the shock occasioned
y the removal of the cataract from his
ght eye, his physicians and friends do ,
otTeel encouraged over his case. He
Excessively weak, and has an irritating
)ugh which, he says, pulls, upon his
ft lung. Since he had an attack of the
rip he has complained coastantly of i
his "pulling."

A.. M Hll of New York arose, as It was
W, understood that he purposedc a
m= vig us attack on the lead schedules.
SHer began by moving to place lead ore
and argentiferous lead ore on thefree
list, but as there only a few senators in
the chamber Mr. Aldrich suggested the
absence of. a quorum. Ha wanted a fpll
senate to witness the New York sena-
tor's arraignment of his party associates.
'The electric bell brought fifty-five sena-
tors'into the chamber.
S .Mr. Hill made his argument in a quiet,
even, temperate manner, although at
times he threw both energy and feeling
into his words. He would not detain
the senate long, he said in beginning.
He realized as keenly as any other sena-
tor the necessity for early action upon
this bill. The country was anxious for
action. While the bill was not satisfac-
tory to him and had not been satisfac-
tory to him since it was reported, yet he
was now and always had been in favor
of its prompt disposition. He had fa-
vored a change of the rules in order to
facilitate action because he believed that
the best way to facilitate action was to
.give the majority the power to fix the
time for taking the final vote instead of
-depending upon the caprice and whim of
the minority.
S Not Responsible for Delay.
None of'the responsibility for delay
rested upon him. He regretted that a
few senators on his side-very few he
was glad to say-were opposed to adopt-
ing the direct method. But he was not
disposed to criticise tlie objectors. They,
acted according to their ideas of public
duty. He acted according to his.
SHe thought it was idle for his party
'associates to criticize their friends on
the other side of the political aisle for
exercising their privilege under the lib-
eral rules of the senate, when they re-
fused to apply the remedy that was open
to them.:, They were pursuing the same
course the Democrats pursued in 1890 in
the fight against the force bill. The
remedy for this condition of affairs lay
in proceeding in a prompt, plain, manly
fashion and rearranging the rules.
Gorman Exceeded His Authority. '
As he had said before, he continued,
the bill was not satisfactory to him. It
was not satisfactory to other Democrats
on this side of the chamber, and if the
,senator from Maryland (Mr. Gorman)
the other day intended to have it in-
Sferred that there was Democratic unity
on this bill, he had exceeded his author-
ity. The bill would not be satisfactory
to him (Mr. Hill) as long as it contained
*one remnant of the Populistic income
tax. Still he thought it the duty of
SDemocrats not to defeat it, but to mod-
S" ify ,and perfect it.
:' Mr. Hill proceeded to explain that he
had voted against Mr. Teller 's motion to
S table the bill because he did not desire
S to kill the measure before it'was fully i
considered and an honest effort was -
Smade to modify it. He had voted the
other day, he went on, to place iron ore
. -on the free list. That vote stood soli- t
S tary and alone as far as Democrats votes
were concerned. He did not anticipate t
that the motion be now made would be t
carried, yet it ought ,not to require any P
argument to convince a Democratic i
S senator that lead ore should go on the
f, ree list. The Democratic party stood a
'o pledged to it. Lead ore waq a raw ma-
:terial, and the party was conmmitted to t
S,.,,Irqe raw materials.,

afternoon, when they were
amp at Ensley City, where

nie of the Second regiment for ten days.
The situation is decidedly serious, but
the presence of the state troops has put
somewhat of a quietus on the more vio-
lently inclined.

He Carries Several Counties that Were
Claimed by the Evans Men.
.ATLANTA, May 26.-The results in the
nine counties that acted today, as re-
ceived at midnight, indicate what is
practically a sweeping victory for
Speaker Atkinson.
This has been counted upon by the
Evans 'leaders as their banner week, and
yet it now looks as if Atkinson has car-
ried it two to one, getting 28 votes to
Evans 14.
Wilkes county, which acted yesterday,
started the ball rolling. It was thought
certain for Evans, but went for Atkinson
by two majority. These two votes mean
four in the convention. '
Today Evans has carried Floyd

The Domestic Circle of the White House la
Again Complete.
WVASHINGTON, May 26.-The, domestic
circle of the White House was completed
today by the return of Mrs. Cleveland
and the babies from their visit to Mrs.
Perrine of Buffalo.
The party reached here at 11:35 o'clock
on the Philadelphia express.of the Penn-
sylvania railroad. The train was due at
10:16 o'clock, but was delayed by an ac-
cident to the engine a few miles the
other side of Baltimore.
The president was too busy with his
official dates to meet the party at the
depot, and Private Secretary Thurber
performed that service for him. Mrs.
Cleveland and the children are in -excel-
lent health, and will remain in Washing-
ton so long as 'the present pleasant
weather continues. They will spend the
summer at Gray Gables, and. the Presi-
dent will join them there as soon as he

ORLANDO, May 26.-During the time
that the courthouse was being erected
in Orlando the city council granted a
permit to the Florida Central and Pe-
ninsular railroad to run a spur from its
main line down Central avenue to the
courthouse square, that it might be able
to deliver building material directly
where needed. Later on a portion of
the track was taken up, but still for a
distance of about one block the track
has remained in the street. At a meet-
Ing of the council two or three weeks
ago an order was passed to have this
track taken up, as it was considered to
some extent an annoyance to the public
and seemed to serve no good purpose.
Nothing had been done about it until
this morning, when Marshal Preston,
acting under instructions from the coun-
cil, secured the services of a gang of
men and at daylight commenced to tear
up the rails. By 8 o'clock the work was
An Idle Street Car Track.
As people began to appear on the
street in the early .business hours, many
expressed a wish that the marshal would

town, while there is no street car serv-
ice. The track is idle. The cars have
not been running for several weeks.

There was nothing lacking in any

it one of the grandest events' in the
history of that school. The audience
was one of the largest and most appreci-
ative that ever assembled in Simonson's
Opera House. The teachers felt amply
repaid for the labor of the past few
weeks in the drilling and preparation of
the students.
The people of this city feel grateful
toward Major Thomas, Misses Clem
Hampton, Ella La Fontisee, Jane Rice
and Lillian Post, the able instructors
who have worked so diligently in ad-
vancing the cause of education the past
term. Last night's entertainment, which
consisted of singing, recitations, dia-
logues, etc., was an apt illustration of
how well the students had been taught.

Probable Clew to the Barn Burner.
Sheriff Hilliary now has the name of
the man who burned Mr. McCredee's
barn. at Micanopy recently, and who rob-
bed him of $1,100 in cash while the mem-
bers of the house were endeavoring to
save some of their property which was
stored in the burning building. The
discovery was made by a clew which at
first seemed unimportant. Two heavy
hickory clubs were found near the house
the day following the robbery, with
which no, doubt thie robbers meant to
have silently killed any person found in
the .house unarmed. The 'sheriff de-
termined to find where the sticks
had been cut from. A diligent
search was successful. Near where
the sticks had been cut were
found evidences that some one, had
camped their very recently. The spot
was examined carefully, and the sheriff
and his deputy were about to leave the
place ,.when the latter discovered two
sticks that had been disturbed and which
were covered with moss. Xn examina-
tion developed the fact that the, ground
had been broken, and the two men at
once began to dig eagerly in the hope of
making a find. They discovered about
six inches beneath the surface two old
sheets wrapped in a newspaper, the lat-
ter bearing a name and postoffice ad-
dress. Sheriff Hilliary will not' give
the name found in the paper, but he
stated that he had followed the incident
by making inquiries for the man, whom
he had traced by a perfect chain of cir-
cumstantial evidence to Micanopy from
one of the large southern cities. He does
not know the whereabouts of the guilty
man and believes that he has left the

have congregated at Pemberton's Ferry
and Fitzgerald, on the Withlacoochee

most lawless and desperate negroes, who

Sheriff Burns and his deputies are ever
on the alert to detect crime and crim-

So strong has this organization become
that it is very difficult for the officers of

The chief allies of these criminals are
the negro women, who defend them with

irrigated trees were thoroughly tested
during the dry season, and the orange
growers are waiting results. They will

quality of fruit, and by so doing can
readily determine the momentous ques-
tion, "Does irrigation pay?" During

the eoto'"
around the spring are of such material
as is usually passed through in boring
artesian wells.
The volume of this spring and the
regularity of its flow are positive evidence
of the existence of an immense body of
water beneath the surface which only
needs the welldigger's drill to release it.
This fact was discovered years ago when
Mr. William Kennish, now deceased,
made observations while boring the
Ponce de Leon wells. Mr. Kennish was
an engineer of much ability and realized
that this vast subterranean body of
water could be easily utilized for power
by simply boring wells and allowing it
. to flow to the surface.
Artesian Wells for Power.
Mr. Kennish incorporated a company
for the purpose of boring wells for a
power plant, but his death has for the
time put a stop to the carrying out of
this scheme. Water power is a great
item to be considered in the locating of
cotton and other mills. Manufacturers
pay large rentals for little streams. In
this neighborhood every manufacturer
could have his own stream from his own
well. There is always-a steady and
constant supply. The artesian wel flows
on just the samb through a drought as
through a wet season.
The day will doubtless come when
Florida's subterranean ocean of sulphur
water will be put to a more general use.
It is now used for. a good many pur-
poses. Power sufficient to run large
turbine wheels of the old pattern is ob-
tained from four-inch wells. All the
water used in the houses in the city and
fire hydrants flows from artesian wells.
The great swimming pool in the Casino
is supplied from an artesian well, and
flows into the Casino at a temperature
of about 80 degrees. All the fountains
and basins are filled with artesian water,
and it is f usual sight in the season to
see nurses bathing the faces of little
children with the water from the foun-
tains in the parks, as it is noted for its
excellent qualities for beautifying the
complexion and keeping the skin in a
healthy condition.
The Electric Street Railway.
Messrs. Homes and Jackson and Dr.
Rainey; the parties interested in the St.
Augustine electric street railway, say
very little about the enterprise, but it is
Understood that they are perfectly satis-
fied with. the progress that is being
made. If the new company works upon
the old route that was -mapped out by
Dr. Rainey two years ago, the electric
line will run along San Marco avenue to,
the city gates, along the bay to
Cathedral street, 'to Cordova street, to
Carrera street, to Malaga street, to King
street, through' New Augustine. The
South branch will run along the bay from
the plaza, through to South street, to
Central avenue, to King street, to the
bridge. The route will then be con-
tinued through North city to the old
right of way of the North Beach Im-
provement company, over a new bridge
and across North beach to the ocean.
: Thenew company will no doubt secure
,-grants and land from property owners
along the route, particularly in the
suburbs, where the road will enhance
the values of real estate. St.-Augustine

Closing Hours of the Whit-
hurst Murder Trial.


Was Made by John P. Wall, Jr.-Evidence,
Introduced to Show That Whit-
hurst Had Made Threats
Against Stevenson.

TAMPA, May 26.-All the evidence, in
the Whithurst murder case id in. The-
defense-rested at about 5 o'clock last.
TJhe opening speech was made by John,
P. Wall, Jr., for the state this morning.
Court adjourned this evening until' 9,
o'clock Monday'morning. Two lawyers
are yet to speak before the case can go
to the jury.
Most of the evidence introduced yes-
terday was for the purpose of showing;
that Whithurst had made threats against
Stevenson previous to the shooting.
Robert Youngblood testified that Whit-
hurst said: "If I ever get into a diffi-
culty with 'Bud' Stevenson again, I will
try to get the first shot." This conversa-
tion occurred four or five months before ,
the shooting.
On cross-examination, the witness ad-
mitted that he had told Stevenson of the
threats made, and also admitted that
Stevenson had made threats against
The bad feeling existing between Whit-
hurst and Stevenson came near cul-
minating in a row at a country dance,
where one of the Whithurst boys jostled
against Stevenson while waltzing.
Stevenson Was Angry.
Stevenson said : "Do that again if you
dare." He afterward said that he was
sorry he had said it. He thought it was
W. E. Whithurst or he would not Lhave
spoken so harshly.
H. Winham of Pasco county, who had
a blacksmith shop at Tarpon Springs,
said that a fight had occurred near, his
shop, and after it was over the marshal,
Whithurst, arrived. Winham -remarked -
"You are too late to see the fun; the
fight is over." Whithurst replied that
he might have got into it himself if he'
had arrived sooner, and went on to say
that the office of marshal was, a thank-
less on'e; that he might have to arrest a,
friend at any time, or an enemy, which
might be worse. He added: "There is
one Ipan who, if he ever comes here and
carries on as he has done before, I will
arrest him or kill him." That man he
said was "Bud" Stevenson. Witness
said he told the marshal that he thought
he had better deputize some one else, to
arrest the man. The marshal replied
that he would do it himself or kill the
J. J. Nealigh testified that Whithurst
had borrowed a pistol from him a few
days before the Fourth of July, the day
that the shooting occurred. Whithurst
said that he might need the pistol that
day, as there would be a crowd.' Whit-
hurst also said that he had had a diff- '
culty lIefore'with "Bud" Stevenson and '.^
wanted to ba prepared thel.exl.time.
Has Not Seen the Weapon Since.
The pistol was a nickel plated thirty-.:
eight-caliber Smith & Wesson. The
witness has not seen the weapon since
it was borrowed.

To Be Given at the Opera House by the-
"'Little Tycoon" Performers.
Those who have had the "Little Ty-

possible to bring it to a successful issue
this season, as a good many of those
who were to have taken part have gone
off for the summer. It has, therefore,,
been decided to select some of the best
duets, choruses, etc., and present these
in an entertainment to be given at the
Opera House next Friday evening.
Those who are to take part on this oc-
sion will be among the best local talent,,
and as much practice has been given the
affair it will undoubtedly-prove a success.
in every way. Among the features will
be the grand Tycoon march, duets from,
the "Mikado" and "'Trip to Chinatown,'"
as well aq instrumental and other vocal
music. I

Is Bubbling Up in the Ocean
Near St. Augustine.


Will Be Made by a Party of Interested
Gentlemen in the Near Future-The
Artesian Wells for Power-The
Ne* Electric Street Railway.

ST. AUGUSTINE, May 26.-Every one
living in this section has heard of the
great sulphur spring situated In the
ocean two miles off shore, but very few
Persons have seen it. Therefore the
general belief is that the spring is a
myth. Such is not the case, however,
for the spring really exists, and it is one
of the wonders of the east coast.
It is the intention of a farty of gentle-
men to go out to the spring soon to
gather data in regard to it. They will
take instruments with them to ascertain
the exact depth and character of the
spring, and the formation of the stratas
through which it comes. The character
of the bottom surrounding the spring
and the source of the spring will also be
ascertained if possible.
This spring is one of the most curious
of the freaks that exist in Florida. It
is situated in the ocean three miles
north of Matanzas inlet and two miles
off the shore of Anastasia island. The
sulphur laden water of the spring forces
itself through eight fathoms or forty-
eight feet of sea water, creating a turbu-
ent circle on the surface of the ocean
sixty feet in diameter.
I Captain Edward Allen, a harbor pilot,
says that he has visited the spring fre-
quently during the past twenty-two
years. He says that he first saw the
spring while on a United States govern-
ment coast survey. The spring was the
same then as it lo-today. The captain
often takes parties for a sail to the
Seeking Its Source.
Captain Allen says that persons here
often attempted to ascertain the source
of the great volume of water, but all elf-
forts to sink any ordinary instrument
into the spring have been fruitless thus
far. On one occasion he endeavored to
sink a keg heavily loaded with lead. He
managed to get nearly over the spring
by anchoring two boats, then drawing
them together into the center of the
spring. The keg was lowered, but after
going down a short distance the great
pressure of the water broke the keg and
the fragments were shot into the air.
A bottle well loaded was also tried, but
the pressure smashed the bottle.
' Those who are familiar with the pecu-
liar stratas and water channels that exist
beneath the surface along this coast are
of the opinion that the spring was
created by the giving away of the strata
beneath which is the body of water
which supplies all the artesian wells
along this coast. If this be the solution,
Sthe crevice in the strata must be very

w women like to confess in the statement
that to some women the question of
f dress is really, of almost tragic import-

t of a lady who told him that "the con-
sciousness of being perfectly well attired
brings an inward tranquility of soul
e which'religion is powerless to bestow."
e And everybody has heard of the French

famous string of pierced diamonds al-

fastens them together. Thus a string or
band of brilliant light goes around the ,A

said that Mrs. Vanderbilt's idea in doing
this was to secure a glimpse of diamonds

a great fondness for the stones and likes (
to hold them in her hands and admire (
their colors in their unset state. To b
have three or four dozen of these wonder- t

Petticoats are an important portion of

taffeta, soft flowered satins, wonderful
plaids and changeable hues, crimped
'chiffon ruffles, laces, ribbons-all are put
into the adorable petticoats for the sum-
mer. It seemed as though ingenuity
had last season exhausted its combina-
tions; but the resources of the French
designs are infinite, and the last petti-
rcoats made' surprass all that have gone
Before. Some of the new petticoats
hIvo notched ruffles of a three-inch
wfdth sewed into the edge, one lapped'
uton another and all of different tints,

which means one's skirts are fringed

The San Joaquin valley, in the cen- lu
ral southern part of California, has of to
te years secured a large proportion of m
he newcomers by reason of the enor- co
aous development of irrigation. An an
abundant supply of water has been se- el
ured by means of canals in Merced,
resno, Tulare, Kern and other coun- m
es of this valley, which has to a great it
extent overcome the natural disadvan- du
ages of a scanty and variable rainfall. pa
large extent of the land in this sec- in
on is devoted to the cultivation of ti(
alfalfa, that valuable pasture and ch
rage plant which was introduced ra
nto California from South America, st
nd has proved to be admirably
dapted to the soil of the south-
rn counties. In Kern county alone h
ver 100,000 acres are devoted to ai
lfalfa. From three to five cuttings of W

Together from six to eight tons to the g<

California, like every other part of the n
United States, has its peculiar advan- T
ages, but it has also counterbalancing b
objections Despite the Pacific railroads, v
t must always be a remote section for the
great bulk of the country's population, ,
which lies east of the Rockies and even ie
of the Mississippi, and this of itself will tt
leter many people in the east from ever S
thinking of making their homes on the o
Pacific coast. The'sduth is far easier to C
reach, and we need only to show'the
same enterprise which California, has
displayed in attracting settlers to bring T
hem herein great numbers.

At a called meeting of, the county s
Democratic executive committee yester- N
lay, a communication was received from a
what is commonly known as the "Barrs t
committee," asking for the appointment ts
of a sub-committee to confer with a like, t
committee of the Bars faction for the e
alleged purpose of securing "harmony in a
the Democratic ranks of Dural county." c
This proposition, under the 'circuim-
stances, is indeed remarkable. It asks. c
the regularly constituted c
executive committee of th
to resign, and to allow
committee" virtually to dict
nation of ,a new executive
The ostensible purpose for wl
qgst is made is that of seeetc
.4he Democratic pa-rti
*4,*t4et us see by what a
*`committee" makes tn
upon the executive commit
first place, the --Barns comn
n6 recognized life or standing
)cratic body or organization. That r-
ter has been decided by the highest itIb- t
unals in the party-the people them b
selves and the convention.- Whatever'
rights the members of the "Barrs b
committee" may have as individual '
citizens and professed Democrats, is c
quite another matter.,i But the prop- f
er place for the exercise of these
rights is at the polls and in the t
next convention, which will select a 'suc- t
cessor for the present executive commit-
tee. They have no authority to speak
for the Democracy of Dural county in
advance of another election, ,:
The assumption, of course, upon which
the "Barrs; committee" claims authority
is that the present executive committee
was not duly chosen by the people. .
This is remarkable when we reflect
that the executive committee was select-
ed at the convention held under the
auspices of the committee of which Mr.
Barrs was chairman; that the election at

which the delegates to that convention
were chosen was officered solely by men
appointed by- the committee of which
Mr. Barrs was chairman, and that Mr.
Barrs himself called the convention 'to
order, organized it and turned it over to
Dr. Dancy as chairman.
And this is the convention, so-called,
so composed and so organized, which se-
lected, the present Democratic executive
committee of the county.: Surely, then,
the Barrs faction ought to be the last to
challenge the authority of the executive
The resolutions adopted by the "'Barrs
committee" and published elsewhere in
THE CITIZEN purport to express an
earnest desire for harmony in the party.
As a means to this end they, ask rep-
resentation on a new committee to be
Formed at their suggestion.
SWhen the faction which the present'
executive committee is said to represent
asked representation in the appointment
of officers for the election two years
ago, did the Barrs faction grant
that request? Is it not a fact that
the Barrs faction, declined to grant the
opposing faction 'the appointment oel a
single inspector or clerk or other officer
of the election? And is it not a fact
that, notwithstanding all this, the De-
mocracy of Duval county defeated the
,Barrs faction at the election held and,
officered by the Barrs faction, and se-
lected the present executive committee
at the convention called and organized
also by the Barrs faction? ,
When these facts are considered, the

thekind. It stated that our Waycross ar
advices indicated such a result, and an
we expressed some surprise at such
Indications in a county whose tr
Democracy had so emphatically in- la
dorsed the administration. THE CITI- th
ZEN also stated that the administration m
issuebetween General Evans and Colonel at
Atkinson was not as distinctly drawn as cu
it was in Alabama between Colonel Oates F
and Captain Johnston, although it was a ti
well known fact that General Evans was e:
an administration man, while Colonel a
Atkinson was not. We repeat that this A
is a well known fact in Georgia, and if ti
The Press does not know it, it is because a]
it is not informed as to the politics of its f(
own state. THE CITIZEN further said in
that Colonel Atkinson's antipathy to the ai
administration was not such that it a
would prevent him from accepting the e:
nomination on the administration plat- o
form, which the Georgia state con- a
vention will most certainly promulgate, tl
The Press is also informed that, in spite a
of the peculiar circumstances, Colonel a
Atkinson will carry Ware county. We n
are not attempting to meddle in the l
local affairs of Georgia, but it we were b
we should certainly undertake to inform li
ourselves on the situation better than b
The Press has informed itself. d
THE CITIZEN recently expressed re- p
gret that so good an erstwhile Demo-
crat as Judge Reagan had decided to U
make the race for governor in Texas on t
the antl-platform ticket. We regretted o
this determination on the part of Judge i
Reagan on account of his personal pol'u-
larlty, and the fact that such considera- y
tions often influence people to the sacri- o
flee of the principle involved. Judge d
Reagan will of course develop a strong t
following. This is unfortunate for the I
party. r
It will be remembered that bitterness s
was engendered in the ranks of the Texas d
Democracy two years ago by the inde- t
pendent candidacy of Judge Clark
against Governor Hogg. These breaches,
however, were in a fair way to be healed,
for the Texas Democracy, like that of
Florida, is loyal and magnanimous. d
The candidacy of Judge Reagan will
rekindle the old games. It will precip- c
itate strife and dissatisfaction, which are o
always to be deplored. Particularly is c
this to be regretted when we have seen, a
as in the case of the present congress, t
how difficult it is to carry out the
pledges of the Chicago platform without s
a thoroughly unified and determined t
Democracy. e
Of course it is not to be presumed that t
Judge Reagan's candidacy will result in c
the loss of Texas to the administration i
.Mhat is hardly possible. I

^ eilieve -that the people of'Texas
have come to realize the fact that Grover 1
Cleveland is not only a man of honesty,
but that he is a pure and unadulterated
.Democrat. That being the case, they
will not select as their Democratic stand- t
ard bearer a man who has sought by
every means in his power to place Cleve-
land in a false and un-Democratic atti-
t'ude before the masses. As I under-
stand Mr. Cleveland, he is a bimetallist
pure and simple, and seeks to maintain
the true parity between gold and silver, (
and will not allow silver legislation that
,will result in monometallism, silver be-
ing the metal. In this I believe all true i
Democrats agree with him." '
* Senator Greer \peaks for the Texas
Democracy as one to some extent with
1 authority. He was a member of the last
. legislature when similar lines were
closely drawn and when opportunity was
) afforded folr testing the strength of the
dissatisfied element. What he says of
the situation in his state is a fair esti-
mate of the popular feeling, and is en-
titled to credit.
Judge Reagan's < candidacy is un-
fortunate, but it is unfortunate principal-
ly for himself and his personal friends.

The U. S. S. New York Will Return to the
New York Navy Yard.
WASHINGT*ON, May 26.-The steamship
which arrived last .evening at New Or-
leans from Bluefields brought a dispatch
from Captain Watson of the San Fran-
cisco to the navy department.
The captain says nothing of the polit-
ical situation there, but reports that his
vessel is very foul and suggests that
one ship is sufficient to keep the guard
at Bluefields.

Accordingly, Acting Secretary McAdoo
this morning sent orders to Captain
Philip of the New York to sail at once
with his vessel for the New York navy
yard. The order goes by wire to New
Orleans and thence by steamer to Blue-
It has not been definitely arranged
what vessel will take the place of the
New York, but it will be either the At-
lanta or the Marblehead, whichever is
first in condition for the voyage.
Ths Sari Francisco will in the mean-
time remain at Bluefields, but it is ex-
pected that she may be relieved within a
few weeks.

gew York Trust company, as executor
f the estate, refused to sign this agree-
sent, and asked the surrogate for in-
tructions. The surrogate ordered the
company to sign the agreement, but it
gain refused and appealed the case.
rhe court of appeals reversed the order
)f the surrogate, holding that heirs could
ot break the will by-agreement, as
here were likelyto be other heirs, at .
hat time unborn, who would be affected
rnder the provisions of the will.

THE increasing unpopularity of the

to the extinction of that feature of the
British government. The senate of the
United States should take warning in

courtesy is commendable, but when it is
I used as a bulwark behind which an hon-
orable senator can intrench himself to
\ block legislation demanded by the busi-
ness interests of the country, it ceases
to be favorable in the minds of an inde-
pendent and freeq thinking people, and is
in a fair way of becoming intolerable.
The American people are entitled to
some courtesy and consideration from
the men who are supposed to be serving
them in the senate, and the time wil
come when they will demand it.

Will of the Late F. W. Lasak-Suit for
$50,000 Against the New York
Herald-Skeletons Unearthed.
NEW YORK, May 26.-Mrs. Ada Dow-
Currier, who was directress of the Julia i
Marlowe company, and who sued b
Theatrical Manager David Henderson to
recover damages to the extentaof $50,000
for injuries received at the Chicago 0
Opera House in 1887 by the fall of one
of the scenes, recovered a verdict today P
for $18,000 in the supreme court. The e
case was tried before Justice Barrett a
and a jury, and occupied the attention a
of the court nearly* a week. In the o
absence of Justice Barrett, the verdict
was opened today by Justice Patterson. t
g The injuries were received while t
'Twelfth Night" was being produced at
the Chicago Opera House, of which Hen- P
person is the manager. Mrs. Dow-Cur-
rier's skull was fractured by the falling
of a piece of the scenery. Manager Hen- "V
person contended that Mrs. Dow-Currler
should not have been on the stage at the v
time of the accident, as the scenes were c
being arranged. He claims that after r
the accident he spent about $2,100 in a

Judge M. A. Shumway, in the superior t
court at Hartford, has handed down a p
decision in favor of the school board of f
New Britain in the suit brought to com- o
pel the admission of unvaccinated chil- p
dren to the public school. ,
Vaccination Not Compulsory.
The judge finds that'the law authoriz- 1
ing the school board to order all school i
children vaccinated and to exclude those
not vaccinated from the schools, is un- n
constitutional. This decision and that t
of Justice Gaynor of Brooklyn, that a
man may not be compelled to submit to v
vaccinatiofi any more than he d
may be compelled to submit to c
the administration of a noxious p
dose of medicine is being indus-
triously spread all over the
country by the anti-vaccinists. The A
wide prominence attained by Justice A
Gaynor in the recent election cases gives
his opinion weight. Practitioners as a
rule refuse to express an opinion as to
the probable result had smallpox become ]
epidemic and had people in threatened I
localities backed their refusal to be vac- ]
cinated with a judicial decision. The ]
percentage of refusals among very ignor-
ant people is about 50 per cent. It is
less than 5 per cent among the intelli-
gent. The arguments against the prac-
tice have been vigorous and convincing,
but the pro-yaccinits say they are not (
logical and not borne out by facts.
It cannot be denied, however, that the
ranks of the disbelievers have swelled I
in the last fiv' years. A movement i., ]
afoot now to- secure legislation which I
will prohibit any board of health from I
practicing wholesale vaccination and
from attempting it in any case except
with the full and free, consent of the
Mr A New Yacht. /
Mr. Richard K. Fox, the wealthy
moral publisher, has given orders for the
construction of a steam yacht, which is
expected to make thirty knots an hour,
and which can be converted into a tor-
pedo boat on short notice. It is under-
stood that the swift steamer is to be
called into existence to enable Mr. Fox
to escape.from Anthony Comstock, when
that sagacious and alert functionary dis-
covers the elevating character of Mr.
Fox's wealth producing publication.
Another move in the contest over *the
will of the late Francis W. Lasak, who
for many years was a partner of the
original John Jacob, Astor in the fur
trade, will be made in a few days. Law-
yer Aaron Kuhri, counsel for Mrs. An-,
toinette Schermerhorn, a daughter of
Mr. Lasak, will apply for an injunction
to prevent a sale of property valued at
$5,000,000, which is advertised to ocqur
May 31.
The contest over Lasak's will has
been in the courtsC in one form or an-
other, almost constantly since his death
in 1889. By his will he left the bulk of
his estate to his favorite daughter', Mrs.
Cordelia D. Chauvet of Dobbs' Ferry.
Liberal provisions were made for Mrs.
Ouhelia J. Cuthbert and Mrs. Adelaide

McKenzie of Brooklyn, but to Mrs.
Schermerhorn he gave only the interest
on $30,000 for life.
Miss Kinney's Suit.
The suit of Miss Bertha E. Kinney of
Moosup, Conn., against the New Nork
Herald for $50,000 damages, -trial of
which was begun on Wednesday before
Judge Townsend in the United States
circuit court has been decided in favor of
the plaintiff, the jury assessing damages,
at $6,000.
Judge Townsend, in his charge, said:
"It is admitted that the article in ques-
tion was a false and damaging libel, and
was given a prominent place in the news-
paper. It is taken for granted in such
cases that the libel is in itself malicious.
It is for you to decide what damage can
be awarded. There is no fixed sum.
Character has no market value."
On request of the' attorneys for the
newspaper, Judge Townsend, however,
charged the jury to award no punitive or
exemplary damages, on the ground that
no actual malice on the part of the
editor had been shown. He further
charged the jury to consider that the
position of the plaintiff in society re-
mains good, and not to award damages
merely because the newspaper failed to
make a thorough investigation of the
ibelous story before it was printed.

NEW YORK, May 26.-Perrin H. Sum-

House, Yonkers, three years ago, was
his "ancle Edgar," and that another

So saying, Mr. Sumner pointed to a
semi-petrified orange that was lying on
his desk.
"Where is this magnificent estate?"
asked the reporter%
"Well, the estate, sir, is near Starke,
Bradford county, Florida. I own half of
those 360 acres. Another party owns
the other half. If you pay the $2,000 for
the privilege of farming and reaping the
half benefit out of my half, you will en-
joy the right to purchase the other half
for another $1,000. But I must have the
$2,000 before the end of this week.

Radical Cab!i 1at '10'-
PARIS, May 26.-M. Bri-SOn, -who was
summoned yesterday afternoon by Presi-
dent Carnot, today declined the task of
forming a cabinet, alleging as a reason
the failure of M. Bourgeois and M.
Peytral, who represent less advanced
ideas. It would thus appear that a
purely Radical ministry is impossible,
and that a Dupuy Radical cabinet is more
likely to be successful. In such a com-
bination it is probable that MM. Brisson,
Bourgeois, Poincarre, Cavaignac, Del-'
cass, Doumeg, Mercier and, Kerjegn
may-have portfolios.
If the present plans fail, President
Carnot will send a message to the cham-
bers announcing that he will not be a

ButWish to Supplant the Reg-
ular Committee.


To Dissolve the Begular Democratic Coun
ty Committee and Appoint Another
with Independents on It-Work
of the Executive Committee.

A meeting of the county Democratic
executive committee was held at the
office of Mr. George E. Wilson yesterday
morning, and was presided over by Dr
W. McL. Dancy, chairman. Mr. Jules
Salomon, the secretary, and about flf
teen members were present.
The question of a recommendation o
an appointee to fill the position o
clerk of the circuit court, in case
vacancy should occur, came up for con
sideration. Three candidates appeared
for the recommendation, A. L. Turner
E. J. E. McLauren and R. L. "Buckman
A vote was taken, resulting in Turner
receiving nine votes; McLauren, three
and Buckman, one.
A resolution was unanimously passed
that hereafter '.no member of the com-
mittee shall sign a petition recommend
ing a candidate for appointment to any
office." Such endorsement will have to
come from the committee as a whole and
in regular meeting.
The committee decided that it was
not proper for any officer of the criminal
court to defend persons charged with
crime either before the Justice or crimi-
nal courts of the county.
Analous to Get Back Into the Fold.

~' The Barrs Committee Meet.
'-. metingo tbseBsrrz iWe ene 4t
faction was leld at the office of Chair-
, m man Barrs with about fifteen members
*" presentn. i
The meeting was largely taken up in
considering the question of party har-
mony in the county, and it was the gen-
eral sense of the meeting that this could
be best brought about by the appoint-
ment of a committee to confer with a
similar committee appointed by the
Democratic committee. To this end a
committee consisting of J. M. Barrsa H.
W. Clark, W. A. Adams, C. B. Spencer,
E. TN. Gilbert and J. N. C. Stockton was
For the guidance of that committee
the following resolutions were then in-
troduced and passed:
"Resolved, That the special commit-
tee appointed to attempt to secure
harmonious action between all the
Democrats of the county of Duval are
hereby instructed to express the unan-
imous desire of this committee that all
the Democrats of the county be harmon-
ized, and that the two organizations
now existing be consolidated by the
election of a new executive committee
to be elected by a primary election,
called for that purpose by the joint
action of both existing committees, and
participated in by all Democrats without
regard to past factional differences; such
election to be protected by all proper
safeguards as may be necessary to pre-
vent fraud threat; each executive com-
mittee appointing one inspector and one
clerk to hold the election in each elec-
tion district; each faction having a right

to watchers or challengers at each poll-
ing place; registration lists being used
and opportunity given tor enrollment as
voters at said election all such Democratg
'as are entitled tb register and vote in
the next state election, or to be trans-
ferred from one district to another,.
Willing for Harmony-on Paper.
"Resolved, That the foregoing prop-
osition be submitted to the other com-
mittee or its representatives, and if that
is not acceptable then the committee is
authorized to enter into other fair ar-
rangement to that end, which will sub-
mit to the,Democratic people of Duval
county an opportunity by a fair election
to choose a new .executive committee to
succeed both existing organizations, and
thereby, harmonize their factional dif-
"Be it further resolved, That it is the
sense of this executive committee that
the best interests of the Democratic
party, both in Duval county and else-
where, that the factional differences in
this county be promptly, fairly and per-
manently harmonized by the formation
of a county organization, elected by the
Democrats of the county, to succeed
both existing organizations.)"
The county Democratic committee
being then in session, it was decided to
appoint a 'committee to appear before
that body at once and ask for the ap-
pointment of such a committee for con-
This committee did so, as stated above,
and the answer given was received in

Sto the members of the Barrs' indepeid-

refusal to recognize them as a duly con-

Lay Aside Animosities.
"It is for all true citizens who have
the general good at heart to lay aside
animosities that have divided them as a
political party in the past, and,, putting
behind them the bitterness which four
years of factional strife has engen-
dered, remember only that we are
Carolinians whose dearest interests
are in jeopardy. Meeting aq broth-
ers on the common ground which
all can occupy without the least abate-
ment of self respect or regard for the
views of each other on other subjects,
we should stand together until prohibi-
tion is permanently grafted on the fun-
damental law of the state. In the pres-
ence of a danger so imminent to all,
considerations of mere personal or fac-
tional dominance or advancement should
be held resolutely in abeyance.

I of water in the inlet, where two years
ago there was a sand beach high and
dry. If this deepening from natural
causes continues-which seems alto-
gether likely-perhaps no dredging by
the government would be necessary;
still the reef outside the inlet would be
an obstacle and a menace to navigation,
and it would be necessary to cut a chan-
nel through it in order to utilize the
Deep water inside. This could be done
easily, I think, for the formation is a
soft sandstone, having on it a false
coral which grows and then crumbles
away, only to repeat the process over
and over, if left to itself."
A Coaling Station for the Navy.
Of, course Captain Richards does not
know exactly what Lieutenant Ripley
will report to the department in Wash-
ington, but he feels very confident that
the report will be a favorable one, rec-
ommending appropriations for cutting
through the outer reef and deepening
the water inside-perhaps suggesting
training walls or a jetty. With these
improvements the Santa Lucia inlet
would give access to Santa Lucia roads
inside the long peninsula-a safe har-
bor for vessels drawing fifteen to twenty
feet of water, and with the outlay of a
very small sum of money, comparatively,
our navy could here secure a coaling
station near the Bahama islands. In
times of cyclones or other storms it
would be an excellent harbor of refuge
for merchant vessels, thus reducing the
excessively high insurance rate at pres-
ent in force, by reason of the fact
that there is now no harbor
of refuge anywhere along the lower east
coast of Florida. At Jupiter,, near by,
we already have telegraphic communica-
tion with the Bahamas, also with all
parts of North America by the I. O. T.
line in connection with the Western
Union. In all probability a mail and
passenger service by magnificent
steamers will soon be established be-
tween Nassau and the southern terminus
of the Jacksonville, St. Augustine and
Indian River railway. This is now at
West Palm Beach on Lake Worth, and
from there a canal is being rapidly cut
to the deep waters of Biscayne bay.
If all these considerations are pre-
sented by Lieutenant Ripley in his re-
port, the government officials will cer-
tainly see an opportunity to spend the
public money most advantageously.
Mike Kelly now thinks that his Allen-
town club will win the Pennsylvania
state league pennant by July 4.

Abson offered $1,000 for Second Base-

But Watkins wanted $2,000, and now the
deal is off.

Jimmy Galvin, the old league pitcher,
has already put himself on good terms
with the eastern league cranks by his
fine work in the box for the Buffalo club.

Gilbert, the third baseman transferred
to Buffalo, by the Brooklyn club, is fairly
kill ing the ball.

The Providence 61ub of the Eastern
league is trying to secure Catcher La
Chance of the Brooklyns.

From present indications, it looks as
though it will be hard to pick out a pen-
nant winner before August. ,

The Wasington club's officials will
riot run after Pitcher- Esper, who de-
serted the club a few days ago, but if he
doesn'L report in ten days they will have

divided in case of a draw, to Jackson
and Corbetfc if they will spar for points.
He will allow each man $1,000 for train-

ing expenses. It is not thought the
police would allow such an exhibition.
Hall says after expenses are paid he will
donate the remainder to the poor of the
city. He thinks the receipts would ag-

Jackson, who is now at Joe Dieves'
place over the bay from San Francisco,

I don't think Corbett has acted as

the meeting place will be, and have no
particular choice so long as we get to-

Proceeds to Fling Hot Shot.
Thereupon he proceeded to fling hot
shot into the subtrecsury scheme. He
explains that he swallowed the scheme
' two years ago and made no attempt to
prevent its incoporation in the state Dem-
ocratic platform, because otherwise the
hotheaded Alliancemen would have bolted
the party and committed the fatal blunder
of going off into a third party, which was
done In other Southern states and in his
opinion caused Mr. Cleveland's nomina-
tion and well nigh destroyed the Alliance
in those states.
The governor winds up by readily and
willingly promising to vote on the lines
that he had indicated without regard to
a party caucus, alleging that the refusal
of eastern Democrats to caucus on a re-
peal of the Sherman law last summer
had practically destroyed the caucus
idea for all time to come.
The impression prevailed that Gov-
ernor Tillman's plan is to enter national
politics on a silver platform with the in-
tention, as outlined in his St. Iouis
speech last year, and in a recent inter-
view, to unite the west and south in a
party with its vitality centering around
that issue. With that object in view he
carefully eliminates from his pronounced
creed those demands which, besides re-
garding as chimerical, he fears will em-
barrass the great collision to which he
looks forward.
The Young Candidates.
But where does it leave the two young
candidates for governor? With both
committed to the subtreasury scheme,
what are they to do? And what will the
Alliance do? It is either to surrender or
While it is impossible to say what the
outcome will be, the preponderance of
opinion is that the candidates will sub-
mit to the governor, as they have always
done, and as a result the subtreasury
idea will hereafter live in South Carolina
as nothing more than a tradition.
Senator Butlet's reply to Mr. Mitch-
ell's letter bears a striking resemblance
to Governor Tillman's. The points of
-difference between them are few, and if
important do not appear to be strongly
developed. She senator declares that
no senator is bound by a party caucus,
-and that he had never been and never
will be bound thereby.
S He observes that the subtreasury idea
is dead and then ignores it. He favors
the state bank tax repeal, opposes the
governmental ownership and control of
railroad and telegraph lines, and sees
no objection to postal savings banks.
He is equally strong as the governor in
the advocacy of free silver. He reiter-
ates his allegiance to the Democratic
party, and it is in that that his letter
differs from the governor's, which is
strangely silent as to the existence Qf
political organizations.
The Reverse of Palatable.
Govrnor Tillman's letter is believed
to be the reverse of palatable to .the
leaders of the Alliance, like Bowden, J.
W. Stokes, W. D. Evans and the Keitt4,
but the probability is that they will
submit to his dictation and not actively
resist him upon the platform upon which
he is selfplanted.
Opposition to Governor Tillman is not
to be dreamed of by Third partyites,

A Channel Sixty Feet Wide Opened to the

EDEN, May 26.-Captain Thomas E.
Richards has just returned to his home
here after a trip to Santa Lucia inlet in
company with Lieutenant Charles S.
Ripley of the United States navy and the
latter's assistant. They went down
there to examine the condition of the
inlet with a view to its improvement by
the government in connection with the
work of removing snags and other ob-
structions to navigation in the waters of
the Santa Lucia river or the St. Lucie,
as it is almost universally called. Some
weeks ago Mr. Louis Plo, who is deeply
interested in the settlement of the lands
along the east coast of Florida by thrifty
Scandinavians, secured the aid of Sena-
tor Pasco and others of the Tlorlda dele-
gation in congress in enlisting the inter-
est of the war department in the neces-
sity for an improvement of this inlet,
and Secretary Lament promised that he
would have a preliminary survey made
in order that official information might
be in hand when it should come time to
make a recommendation to congress.
The coming of Lieutenant Ripley was
the result of this promise. He was un-
der instructions from the United States
coast and geodetic survey, and he re-
ported to Captain Richards on Thursday,
May 17.
Jupiter and Indian River InletsP
It will be recalled that about two
years ago Santa Lucia inlet was opened
by a syndicate of private citizens here-
abouts at an expense of about $2,600,
Captain Richards being at the head of
the movement. Prior -to that time this
inlet had been closed entirely for over
twenty years, thus leaving a stretch of
nearly fifty miles on the Indian river
without access to the sea. Jupiter inlet
is about twenty miles to the southward
and Indian River inlet nearly thirty
miles north of it. The distance across
the peninsula at Santa Lucia was less
than 4,000 yards, but a solid accumulation
of soil had formed, followed by a growth
of large trees and a thick mass of shrub-
bery. The Santa Lucia river, coming
down into the Indian river in great vol-
ume, freshened the water of the latter
for many miles above and below Santa'
Lucia, and in consequence the west
shores for many miles were bordered
with fresh [water grasses which, when
the water was low in midsummer, would
decay and produce an almost unbeara le
stench. Captain Richards and his, ds-
sociates, after raising $2.600, hired a
dredge boat and opened a channel to the
ocean sixty feet wide and from flverto
six feet deep.

in great volume, and the obnoxious =t
grass died out immediately.N The'0 ',9
tom of the river, where it once g,'ew th k
and rank, is now the cleanest of 'white
sand, with not a bit of vegetation in t.
The action of the incoming and outgoing,
tides gradually washed out the chancel
to a width of over 100 feet, and the Inll t
became a great convenience for those%
engaged in the navigation of the Indian
and Santa Lucia rivers. But such work
cannot be left to itself without detri-
ment. Either the channel must be re-
dredged at frequent intervals or else
training walls or jetties must be built to
prevent the filling up of the canal again.
The people here are very desirous of
government aid in the matter.
When Lieutenant Ripley reported to
Captain Richards, the captain at once
chartered the big sloop Mattie H, with
N. Sanders in charge, and secured also
the services of John Miller, who knows
every inch of the water about the inlet.
The Work of Inspection Begun.
The party reached the inlet about day-
break last Friday morning, the 18th, and
at once began the work of inspection by
soundings, etc. This was kept up for
four days, including Sunday, the party
disbanding last Tuesday. A govern-
ment vessel called at Santa Lucia inlet
that morning by previous arrangement
and took Lieutenant Ripley and his
assistant to New York. To THE CITIZEN
correspondent Captain Eichards said this
morning :
',We found the condition of the inlet

much better than had been expected.
There was a depth of seventeen feet of
water through the north channel and a
depth of eight feet can easily be secured
as far inside as the beacon, and a depth'
of five feet close up to the mouth of the
Santa Lueia river in a course almost
perfectly straight. The water in the south
channel is considerably deeper on an
average, shoaling off to ten feet on the
northwest of Long island, and the cut
across the peninsula is more direct.
About 600 yards off shore on the ocean
side there is a long reef which we sur-
veyed very carefully for a distance of
two miles. The water over this reef
varies in depth from seven to eight and
a half feet, and the reef itself consists of
coquina, shells, sandstone and coral, all
of which could be easily cut through
with the usual appliances for such work.
Outside the reef the ocean is from three
to four fathoms deep, while inside it is
from one and a half to two and a half.
fathoms. We obtained some specimens
of the bottom inside this reef, and Lieu-
tenant Ripley took away with him many
pieces broken from different parts of the
reef itself. These are for inspection and
analysis at the department.
A Natural Breakwater.
"For some time yet changes in the
channel may be expected, and the sand-
bars inside are likely to shift more or
less; but there is a strong probability
that deep water will be carried farther in,
and a better channel than at present to
the mouth of the St. Lucie river be
formed. The sand is now shifting with
every tide and being rapidly carried out
to sea, and in conseque-i^ the, water in
the Indian river is being dl:,euep ,.' '.,ily.
The reef outside forms a natural. break-
water, but in bad weather the sea breaks'
on it. The great volume of water conm-
ing down the St. Lucie river into the
Indian river is constantly deepening the

Will Probably Submit to the Governor's
Dictation-His Intention Is to Attempt
Uniting the West and South
Upon The Silver Issue.
COLUMBIA, S. C., Mayf26.-An unex-
pected squall has struck the sea of poli-
tics in South Carolina, and as a conse-
quence several "reform" skippers, who
recently put out to sea in small boats,
are bewildered and confounded. It comes
in the form of Governor Tillman's an-
swers to the Alliance catechism. *
At the Walhalla meeting of the State
Alliance last year that body pledged its
membership to yield support to no can-
didate who refused to avow fealty to the
Ocala demands. It was further resolved
to catechize candidates for office high
and low as to their views relative to the
planks of that platform.
Some four weeks ago the Hon. T. P.
Mitchell, chairman of the executive cdm-
mittee of the State Alliance, put the
questions in writing to the avowed con-
didates for governor and the United
States senator. Candidate W. H. Ellerbe,
who aspires to succeed Governor Till-
man, promptly answered all the ques-
tions without reservation in the affirma-
tive. .
John Gary Evans put in a vehement
yes, but cautiously neglected to say in
so many words that he would oppose the
election of any candidate who declined
to accept the terms of the Alliance ulti-
Mr. Pope's Position.
Candidate Sampson Pope was equally
emphatic in advertising his fidelity to
Alliance principles, but stated "that he
would not work for them outside of the
Democratic organization, thus barring
himself from entering the race as a
On April 18 Governor Tillman wrote to
Mr. Mitchell that he was a candidate for
the United States senate, and that while
he would Vote on all questions according
to the dictates of his conscienceand
judgment, he would at the same time
represent not himself, but the people,
and would obey all instructions of the
party in the state as set' forth in its
platform. He also promised to discuss
Alliance principles and make himself
clearly understood in the campaign.
This reply did not silence the inquisi-
tive Mr. Mitchell, who at once asked the
governor for a more explicit declaration
of his intentions.
Now comes the governor in a lengthy
communication, in which, after express-
ing himself in favor of the coinage of
silver, abolition of national banks and
the issue of paper money and a more
ample currency, he frankly admits
"doubt as to the wisdom or praeticabil-
ity of the goven, ow gand run-

r The ExtenlioB on Third and Fourth
S Htreets Completed Yesterday.
Superintendent Kean of the water-
works han had a force of men busily en-
gaged all the week laying the new water
mains on Third and Fourth streets In
S Springfield. 11e completed the work
Tbhot are the malns against the lay-
log of which a protest was made by the
board of public works, but nothing was
done toward stopping the work after it
had been commenced.
Over 4,000 feet of slx-Ilch pipe was
used In laying the mains, and the en-
tUre work was done In a surprisingly
short time.
A petition will be presented at the
next meeting of the council asking that
eight fire hydrants be placed along the
streets to give fire protection. The
board of public works has already or-
dered a fire alarm box to be put up at
the corner of Fourth and Main streets.

Map of the Water Malh.
A map of all the streets in the city
has recently been prepared by Assistant
City Engineer Prioleau, which will be
used by Superintendent Kean of the
waterworks on which to locate the
water mains and house connections. The
map Is made on about twenty-five sep-
arate leaves, which are bound together
In a large book. Superintendent Kean
will locate the water mains and house
connections on the map, and will then
be able to tell Just where they are when
he has occasion to make repairs.

Speed of Steam Craft.
From the New York Su,.
The torpedo boat Cushlnag's voyage
from New York to Newport In six hours
*Ad miauteia l a j 4tareatiui con-
trast with the first steamboat passage
between the two cities. This voyage
was that of the Firefly, which left New
York on May 25, 1817, and reached New-
port In twenty-eight hours. The steamer
Fulton had made the voyage to Now
Haven two years before, In about eleven
hours, and thirteen years later that voy-
age had been shortened only about one
hour. Regular steamboat communica-
tion between New York and Newport
was not established until 1822. Tho trip
hod been made experimentally tho year
before In sixteen ho~urs. Tile faro to
Newport by the early lines was $!). The
public did not begin to call the sound
steamers "floating palaces" until 1826,
when the steamer Washington began to
run on the line and came through from
Providence In less than sixteen hours.
The time to Providence had been re-
duced to twelve and a half hours in 1K35",
and there began to be much talk of
swift steamers; but the boats were still
small, and lt wa<; ten years before steam-
ers of considerable size navigated tho
sound. The Massachusetts, built In 1M3(;,
was the first boat to resemble faintly
the great sound steamers of today, andi
she was only 20'2 feet long, considerably
less than half the length of the largest
modern steamers.

Made Himself Disagreeable.
From the New York Sun.

Once In awhile the efforts many Eng-
llshmen make while In this country to
be disagreeable to the natives take a
rather subtle turn. One Londoner re-
marked to a New Yorker recently: "I
am told that Henry Irving was seriously
considered as an actor by the Amerl- f
cans. Droll, that. We do not consider I
him seriously or otherwlse, as an actor, t
at home. We endure him personally for
the perfect manner in which his produc-
tions are prepared, mounted and
staged." r

A Fortified Barroom.
From the St. Louis Republic.
LOGANSPORT, Ind., May 15.-Nothing
daunted by his past experiences, Bert
Wills is building his fourth saloon at
Burlington in as many years. Two were
dynamited and a third torn down and
burned. The new groggery will be,
perhaps. the most remarkable structure
Df its kind in the country.
It is built fort fashion, with double
walls and formidable looking loopholes,
and is well calculated to repel a vigor-
)us siege. The windows are small round
doles near the eavea and the single door
s a massive affair of heavy oak and iron.
When Wills started his ginnery in Bur-
ington the temperance people said they
would make him quit, and they have cer-
ainly made the most desperate efforts'
o do so. Wills, however, is equally de-
ermined, and so it is hard to predict
rhat the result will be. Either Wills or
is bartender sleeps in the saloon every
ight, ard a burglar alarm is fastened
ear the bed. With thit wires are con-
ected, so as to complete a circuit of the
remises, and the building is thus made
ifflc'ult for the enemy to approach. A
avage bulldog also stands guard on the
outside, while the interior of the sleep-
ng room is a miniature arsenal.

This Explains It.

The cause of the sudden revolt of the
Tew York women against the denial of
he suffrage is 'out at Jast. The cruel

Chicago Market.
CIcA(oO, May 26.--Today weakness continues in
wheat, there being a steady liquidation by the
longs on stop loss orders. St. Louis parties who
were good buyers to cover shorts a few days ago
are said to be putting out fresh lines. There was
also selling by Pardridge and other local bears

early, but on the declines they turned buyers.
Their buying, combined with the buying against I
puts. gave the market its chief support. Fine i
weather, weak cables, reduced exports and a lack i
of cash demand offset the effect of the bad crop
reports. July opened from %@%c. lower, at
from 5MC566c.. and declined to55%c. At 11 o'clock i
it was 665c. Trading was fairly active and opera- I
tors were mostly bearish. The visible supply is i
expected to decrease from 1,000.000 to 1,500,000 1
bushels. I
Corn was weak with wheat. Trade was small I
and the market narrow. Bartlett-Frazier and Car- 4
rington-Haniiah were moderate sellers during the I
first hour. July sold at from 37%@37%c., and Sep- i
member, 38%038%c., and was more freely offered ]
than July. |
Oats were weaker and a shade lower than other ]
grains. Trading was small.
Provisions were slow and easier. Pork declined
10c., lard 2.c. and ribs fc. with grain. The labor |
situation makes traders bearish. Outside packers, j
however, are buying meats here. Hogs were lower. |
Receipts today, 15,000; Friday, 23,3929; Monday's es-
timates,. 28,000; for next week, 125,000. Cattle were
steady. Receipts, 300.

Naval Offcalas Are Reticent Regarding
the Speedy Destroyer.
PSMouL To Toms orrm=.
WaSHIN'TON, May 2(.--Naval officials
have nothing to say in regard to the dis-
cussion in the Englnsh house of com-
mons concerning the United States and
the British torpedo destroyer Havock.
The Havock is a small boat of 220 tons
displacement. She is about twice as
large as the Cushing. She was built by
the Yarrow company, and the peculiarity
of the bbat is her speed, which has run
up to 26.7 knots, or more than any vessel
of her size in the world.
Doubtless it was this remarkable
achievement that induced our naval
officers to make an effort to obtain her
plans and see how it was done.
There has not been much concealment
in such matters between our navy de-
partment and the British admiralty
heretofore, and neither has hesitated to
apply to the other for information when-
ever desired.
British officials have been supplied
freely, not only with information of, but
opportunity for watching the tests of
modern armor plates produced by our
patented processes, and in return we
have been courteously treated whenever
application has been made to the British
for information, but whether the plans
of the Havock'have been so procured can-
not be learned.

Basis of Representaton.
The manner of appointing delegates
and the number was then taken up and
provoked more discussion than any
point raised. Colonel Ohipley suggested
that the counties should have one for
each 100 and one for the traction of 50
or over. This was objected to as en-
tailing the expense of taking a census in
every county or going back to the govern-
ment census of 1890, which would entail
a great hardship on those counties that
had by their efforts advanced their pop-
ulation. Hillsboro county, for instance,
had 8,000 less in that year than
' she has today, while on the other hand
Key West had less. as it was a well es-
tablished fact that 2,000 had left the
Island to make permanent homes in
Colonel H. C. Macfarlane asked: "Who
are we representing, the population or
the Democracy?" More discussion fol-
lowed and Colonel Chlpley then arose
and withdrew his motion.
It was finally decided to allow one
delegate to every 100 votes and one for
the traction over fifty cast for governor
In the election of 1892. A call for a state
Democratic convention at Jacksonville
on Tuesday, July 31, 1894, was then
ordered. Following Is the call:
Call for the Convention.
*,rhe Democratic party of the state of
Florida will hold a state convention at
Jacksonville on Tuesday, July 31, 1894,
at 12 m. for the following purposes :
*To nominate a candidate for the office
of justice of the supreme court, to be
voted for at the next regular state
election, and to transact such other bus-
lness as may come before the convention.
The different counties In the state will
send delegates to the convention upon
the following basis of representation:
"One delegate for each 100 votes cast
for the candidate on the state ticket
that received the highest number of
votes at the general election of 1892 and
one additional vote for the traction in
excess thereof when It amounts to 50
or more. The counties under this rule

The Canadian Authorities Officially Dis-.
avow Responsibility.
WASHINGTON, May 27.-Consul Gen-
eral Riley at Ottawa has informed the
secretary of state that the Canadian au-
thorities officially disavow responsibil-
ity for the alleged insult to the Ameri-
can flag at the American consulate at
St. Thomas, and that they have insti-
tuted a police investigation into the mat-
ter with a view to bringing the offenders
to justice.
The soldiers who tore down the flag
disclaim knowledge that it was over the
American consulate.
Consul General Edwards says that the
occurrence was probably the act of irre-
sponsible individuals who in no manner,
reflect Canadian feeling.

spEcus. TO TiK CITUrzK.'
W.AsuHINTON, May 2;.- It Is expected
that atan early date an agreement will
be formally entered upon as to the time
when a vote shall be taken on the tariff.
It has been expected for several days
that Mr. Harris would make a move in
that direction. The general understand-
ing was that no agreement being reached,
an attempt would be made on Monday
to keep the senate In session until 9 or
10 o'clock at night, and after that to have
sessions every night.
It is now said that the two aides are
just Itanging on the border of an agree-
ment for a vote not later than June 15,
an early date being urged by the Demo-
crats, and that the effort to hold night
sessions will not be made at once.
The general understanding has been
reached meanwhile that the metal schbed-
ule Is to be completed today If possible,
so as to have an early adjournment for
the day,tthe wool schedule to be com-
pleted on Monday and the sugar schedule
to be taken up on Tuesday. On this
schedule there will be a hot tight, which
may last several days. When this is done
with. the worst will be over, and it is the
expectation that a time for a vote on the
bill can then be fixed.
After the Supervising Architect.
Secretary Carlisle contemplates a com-
plete reorganization of the office of the
supervising architect of the treasury.
A corps of experts has just completed a
thorough investigation of the business
methods of the oflice, and has found
many things to criticise. The result of
their researches embodies a detailed re-
port to the secretary of the treasury,
and this document 'will be used as a
basis for the proposed reorganization of
the office.
The experts recommend a number of
changes in the clerical force of the office,
and suggest several improvement in
the administration of its affairs. These
recommendations are based entirely on
their instructions from Secretary Carlisle
to ascertain and report on the best
means of simplifying the business meth-
ods of the office in the interests of
economy and good government. The re-
port is made solely for the benefit of the.
secretary in formulating his action l fA
the matter, and its contents a re'
garded as confidential.
--. _Tolout Off Employees.
It Is known, however, that
recommends a reduction of
twenty employees in the office

of $30,000 out of an annual

Sa Plight of the Navy Department.
Owing to a cut in the estimates sub-
mitted last year to congress for the in-
crease of the navy, the navy department
has got into a sad plight. The estimates
prepared by the bureau chiefs were just
sufficient to carry forward the work to
which the government was actually com-
mitted by contracts, but were sealed
down before reaching congress. As a
consequence several of the largest con-
tractors for naval construction must go
without their money for months, al-
though their work has been completed
and turned over to the government.
If the department shall attempt to
pay these bills, the appropriation would
be so reduced that it would be necessary
to discharge every draftsman and clerk
employed at Washington and in the
various navy yards under the head of
the increase of the navy.

Quarterly Payment of Pensions.
Requisition was made on the secretary
of the treasury yesterday for the sum
of $10,730,000, to be disbursed as the
Quarterly payment of pensions. The
Amount is distributed between the va-
Srious pension agencies as follows: Bos-
ton, $1,790,000; Milwaukee, $100,000;
Des Moines, $100,000; Concord, N. H.,
$50,000; Chicago, $100,000; Washington,
$1,825,000; San Francisco, $665,000; De-
troit, Mich., $1,700,000; Columbus, O.,
$3,700,000; Augusta, Me., $700,000.
