Ceanaelman Scares Point Against the
Iatentat Commerce CommtMtoa.
Witnesses Mot Required t. An
swer Incriminating Qa.tllons
Washington, Jan. 13. Whether Great
Britain is or is not using her influence
with Chile to bring about a satisfactory
settlement of the Baltimore outrage is
as yet a matter of speculation, but there
are abundant evidences that she is show
ing the deepest interest in the prepara
tion for war which our country has
been making. Our naval officers have
not failed to discover that two naval
attaches of the British legation in this
city. Captains William H. Way and Q.
C. Langley, have been watching every
movement of the navy department since
the talk of war with Chile first com
menced. What these officers have
learned has, of course, been duly com
municated to the home government, and
these reports have doubtless been the
means of convincing the British author
ities that the United States is in sober
earnest in her demand for reparation.
. It is noticeable to those who have
watched the developments of the Chilean
controversy that the English influences
in the direction of peace commenced
just after the naval attaches began ac
tivity. These attaches have made per
sonal visits to different places through
out the country where work on war ma
terials is in progress. Only a few days
ago Captain Langley visited the Mare
island navy yards and Union Iron works
at San Francisco to see what trnth there
was in the rumors of hurried work on
the coast defense vessel Monterey and
other vessels. Upon his return a day or
two ago he' told a friend -that he had
been on a few days' pleasure trip to New
York, but this did not deceive tho naval
officers here. '
. Test Cant Settled.
Washington, Jan 12. Charles Conn
selman of Chicago downed the interstate
commerce commission in the United
States supreme court, and to all intents
and purposes has smashed the power of
the commission for all time to come, un
less Senator Cnllom or some other states
man conies to the rescue with an amend
ment to the law. The case decided was
I that of Charles Connselman of Chicago
I vs. Frank Hitchcock, marshal of the
United States for the Northern district
of Illinois, and the decision of the court
was, in brief, that the interstate com
merce commission had no right to com;
?el a witness to testify against himself,,
Tie decision reverses the decision of the
United States circuit court for the
Northern district of Illinois, which
holds that Mr. Connselman, in re-
and were by reason of this advantage
acquiring a monopoly of the business.
It was impossible to prove the charges
without the books of the accused parties,
and an order of the court was issued to
secure them. This Mr. Connselman re
fused to honor and the others took a
similar stand. It was agreed to make
Mr. Counselman's action a test case and
the matter was taken by his attorney to
the United States supreme court with
this understanding.
Fireman Shield.! Cane.
Washington, Jan. 12. The depart
ment of justice is in receipt of a full re-
port of an investigation made by the
United States district attorney of San
Francisco into the case of Patrick
Shields, a fireman on the Americau
steamship Kewenaw, who is alleged to
have received brutal treatment by the
police authorities of Valparaiso for no
other reason than because he proclaimed
himself an American. Shields states
I that he shipped on board the steamer at
1 Brooklyn, N.Y., and reached Valparaiso
on t he 8th of September. He was given
liberty and went ashore. After leaving
a barber shop and while perfectly sober
he was accosted by two policemen for
money, and not complying with their de
mands, tho officers, who were in uniform,
i took him to jail, where they locked him
I up. From this time forward, according
to his statement, be was subject to a j
continuous series of arrests and impris- ;
onment, accompanied by brntal beat- i
ings and periods of service on the chain
gang for no other reason than because
he was an Amertcan. Captain W. H.
Jenkins, of the Kewenaw, a resident of
Boston, testified that the vessel is
owned by Americans and carried tho
American flag. He described the piria-
ble condition of Shields when the latter
returned to the ship after his imprison
ment. The unanimous testimony of of
ficers and crew of the vessel was that it
was unsafe for any American seaman to
proclaim himselt at V alparaiso.

Whitman's Wonderful Vitality.
Philadelphia, Jan. 12. For three
weeks past tho death of Walt Whitman,
the poet, has been daily expected, and
his vitality is remarkable. The doctors
have entirely cured the bronchial pneu
monia, which sent Whitman to bed, and
his lungs are all right. But the ol I poet
is so weak that ho is not able to move
his limbs or his body. His vitality is
very low and he lies in a doze most of the
time, talking but little. While Whit
man is not an atheist and really believes
he is going to die he has not asked to see
a minister, and it is not known that he
belongs to any church or religions de
nomination. Many people supposed
that being such a close friend to Colonel
Ingersoll Whitman is an unbeliever, but
his nearest friends say that he believes
m the existence of a Supreme Being.

the case of the --Conimon wealth vs. J,
N. Taylor, charged with the murder of
Harry Bowmaster at Homestead on the
night of Dec. 8, returned a verdict find
ing the defendant guilty of voluntary
manslaughter. Bowmaster came to
Taylor's house and began rapping or try
ing to open one of the down-stairs win
dows, when Taylor was aroused by his
wife, and taking his rifle, went out into
the yard, and, according to his own
strtement, took a position behind a rain
barrel and asked tne man what he was
doing. The man was working at the
window at the time, and Taylor says
reached toward his side and did not an
swer him. Taylor at once fired and
killed him. Several shots were fired at
Taylor afterward by Bowmaster's two
companions. The attorneys for the de
fendant held, according to the old Eng
lish law, that a man's boose was his
castle and that he had a right, according
to that law, to shoot any person that
tried to effect an entrance into his house
during the night time. This idea has
been exploded apparently by the present

Curliss' ' attorneys made the startling

cent man to the gallows. They claim
that there were two men with Police
man Grant the night he was killed
Curtisg and another man; that the other
man did the shooting, and the police
were aware of this fact, but unable to
capture the real culprit, and the police
are trying to convict Curtiss in order to
avert public cenbure.

Annapous, Md., Jan. 13. One of the
most important bills to be presented to the
legislature this session will be that pro
viding for a repeal of the old Sunday

law more adapted to the times. Milk,
ice, cigars, tobacco, soda water and sim

food, and medicinal preparations will be
exempted from that provision of the law
against selling on Sunday. The bill has

Minnesota Banker and Grain Men Bleat
to Formulate a Protmt.
St.Paul, Minn., Jan. 12. It is learned

taken steps te defeat the famous Wash
burne option bill introduced in the sen
ate last December. A meeting which
was held of St. Panl and Minneapolis
bank presidents was attended by leading
pain and elevator men on invitation.

sage of the Washbnrne bill in its present
si ape would break up one of the leading
industries of the country, requiring for
its handling 85,000,000 of money from
New York, Boston and other money
centers, and weaken the credit of all
grain dealers and ruin that of many.

Dubux. Jan. 13. The meeting of the
Dublin corporation, at which the ques
tion of adopting an address to the
queen, the Prince of Wales and the
duke of Clarence on the occasion of the
duke's approaching wedding, was de
bated and was remarkable for the mod
erate tone which characterized the
discussion. Mr. Dobson. in moving tho
address, said that he was encouraged to
do so by the cordial manner In which
the toast to the queen's health was re
sponded to at the recent mayoralty
banquet. Mr. Brown, in seconding ths
motion, nrged that political feeling
be discarded and that the
members consider only their loyalty
to the queen as subjects of her world
wide empire. Es-High Sheriff Shanks
proposed an amendment, which was
seconded by Alderman Perry, that
"while the occasion of the duke's mar
riage elicits our hearty good wishes, the
council does not feel justified, while ex
ceptional laws are appli-sd to Ireland, in
presenting an address." The supporters
of the amendment repudiated any idea
of disloyulty, and expressed the hope
that when the unjust and exceptional
coercive laws now applied to Ireland
shonld be repealed, and the desire for a
national parliament acceeded to an ad
dress of congratulation on such an oc
casion might be presented from all rep
resentative bodies in Ireland. The
amendment prevailed.
Dilke'i War Speech.
Lovdov, Jan. 12. Sir Charles Dilke
delivered a speech which is likely to at
tract attention and arouse discussion
throughout Europe. He declared that
the Liberals were not wise in trusting
the government's foreign policy. There
were times when the traditional non
interference by the Opposition with the
foreign policy of the party in power
might properly be abandoned. lie be
lieved that neither Germany or France
wished for an alliance with England,
since both cherished designs on Belgium,
whose neutrality England has guaran
teed. Lord Salisbury was allowing that
matter to drift, whereas England ought
to be very jealous of any encroachments
in that direction and should make up
her mind whether or not to fight in
order to preserve the autonomy of Bel
gium. It it were determined that the
guarantee was worth supporting by
force of arms, then preparations for the
inevitable should begin without delay.

Too Sanguine of Peaee.
Berlin, Jan. 13. The Schleseicfa Zei
tnng unusually a well informed paper,
states that the recent reception of gen
erals bj the kaiser was not altogether ae
ceremonial as had been reported. The
kaiser addressed a few significant words
to the leaders of his army, telling them
that there was a tendency to be too san
guine of the prolongation of peace, moi
that he desired them not to be affected
by such a tendency. The paper is sup
posed to have got its information from
an officer who was present. The kaiser
has been very much irritated by the
publicity given recently to some of his
utterances to the army, and it has been
quietly intimated to the officers that
such utterances are in confidence. This
accounts for the fact that the kaiser's
significant remarks escaped attention
until now. .

Valparaiso, Jan. 12. The Chilean
minister at Washington, Pedro Montt,
sent a dispatch to his government to the
effect that, while fully aware that the
United States could not demand salvo
conducto for the refugees in the Ameri-
can legation at Santiago, still he ad
vised that they be allowed to leave the
country as a concession to the United
States gove rnment. Jose Carrerea, one
of the three refugees whom Minister
Egan escorted from Santiago to Valpa
raiso and placed aboard the United
States cruiser Yorktown, was to have
sailed for the north on the German
steamer Abydos, but on reflection has
decided not to do so. He is afraid that
he might be taken off by the Chilean
government at some northern port, so he
remains on the Yorktown, which will
land him and William and Juan McKen
na at a Peruvian seaport
Starvation Breed. Anarchy. '
St. Petersburg, Jan. 12. Anarcqo
exists in several districts of the gov
ernments of Penza and Saratoyat, where
the starving peasants have looted and
burned the houses of the Jews whom
they accuse of monopolizing the grain
product. In a number of instances the
mob furiously attacked the Jews, kill
ing several and wounding many. The
local authorities appear to have been
either unable or unwilling to protect
the helpless people.
