London, March 14. In the bouse of
lorda the Carl of Rosebery, speaking
on a motion to approve the address la
reply to the speech from the throne
asked the fullest indulgence of the
peers, ai he had been forced to the posi
tion he occupied by a sudden call to re
place a man of the noblest energies,
v ho was lost not aloDe to the liberal
Art j, but to the nation.
Lord Salisoury regretted the retire
ment of Mr. Gladstone, which he said
eras a loss that would have been a great
'influence on the destinies of the nation,
be succession of Lord Rosebery, he
laid, was perfectly acceptable, seeing
that his lordship had given many proofs
3t his great abilities. But be thought
!t would have been better if the govern
meat, instead of adhering simply to the
Newcastle program, had introaaced
freth subjects into its program with re
gard to home rule. It was a pity, he
said, that home rule was not put to the
vary front. The sooner the question
was decided the better. I f it were true
that England would resist separation
to the last the sooner Ireland knew of
It the better. The government ought
not to put home rule into the queen's
Ipeech year after year unless they
meant to carry it
Lord Kosebery expressed his gratin
cation at the tribute which Lord Salis
bury had paid to. Mr. Gladstone. The
frief eulogy he had pronounced on him
"ad left nothing to be desired. His
lordship's jibes at the policy of adher
ing to the Newcastle program could be
endured, seeing that the liberal program
had endured, while ;the conservative
program was liable to fluctuation.
Lord Rosebery then proceeded to de
fend the proposed government program
at some length.,

Washington, D. C, March 14.
Wth simple but impressive ceremonies
Refitting an occasion so important,
id ward Douglass AV'bite of I ouisiaua
was installed as an associate justice of
the United States supreme court .
At 1:43 o'clock Justice White pre
sented himself in the office of the clerk
f the court and subscribed to the oath
which Is administered to all officers of
the government. After this he was
conducted to the robing room, where
the justices meet every day prior to the
opening of the court, and there iutro
luced to his future colleagues.
The new associate justice found his
town ready for him when be reached
the robing room. It is one of the func
tions of "Archie" Lewis, who has been
sn attendant of the court for forty
four years, to keep the gowns in good
order and assist the justices in donning
them. In a small chamber off the rob
ing room is a large mahogany closet,
wiiere they are hung when not in use.
There is a legend to the effect that no
member of the court has ever been able
to get into his gown unassisted. The
task does not look to be dillicuit, but
appearances are deceptive, as some
portly justices who have wrestled witii
ihe sombre regalia will admit. When
Mr, White's gown was adjusted Chief
Justice Fuller administered another
oath to him.

Minneapolis, Minn., March 14.
From all information that can be gath
ered at present the Scheig case will not
be allowed to drop out of public atten
tion for some time to come. Shortly
after Scheig's arresc, at the time he was
brought over from Stillwater as wit
ness in the Floyd case, he was served
with papers in a suit which the Hank
of Minneapolis has commenced against
Phil M. Scheie as principal and John
Orth, C. O. Bader, Bartlett Cooper,
Frank Byers and W. Harford as sure
ties on Scheig's 11,000 bond, which was
held by the bank as a Toucher for
.Scheig's faithfulness. Suit Is brought
by the bank to collect the amount of
the bond, and the bondsmen will put
up a defense that may prove to be of
Instense interest. They will charge
jointly that the bank or its officials
knew that Scheig was a defaulter at the
time the bond waa accepted and in ac
cepting it a fraud was perpetrated on
the bondsmen. The bank will deny
this charge in toto and the bondsmen
will endeavor to prove the assertion to
the extent that at least Malhiaa J.
Gogarding, the dead cashier, knew at
the time the bond was accepted that
Scheig waa abort $1,000 in his accounts.

from Honolulu March 8th: A rumor
was afloat Sunday night to the effect
that the government in anticipation of
a last desperated effort of the royalisU
to restore ttie queen, had decided to de
clare martial law Monday, March 6th:
but it was not declared as has yet been
learned. However, such a course was
practically decided on and was iJ
abandoned till the last moment. 1 uc

A Court Martial will r Ordered
Washington, March 16. Secretary
Herbert has been notified that the re
cords of the court of Inquiry on the
wreck of the Kearsarge will be delivered
lo him. It is learned that the papers
contain certain findings and recom
mendations, and though their character
s unknown it is thought that a court
martial will be ordered. In this con
nection it is significant that orders
were issued to Lieut, G. T. Farce, who
was executive officer of the ship and
who was detached March 6, to proceed
to Roncador on the wrecking steamer

who is ordered to the Fern. All the!

jruers, under these circumstances, is
1'iought to indicate that any proceed

Romk, March 16. Many anarchist
aspects have been arrested. Most of
the arrests were preventive measurer,
ilthough several were made in the hope
f throwing some light on the Monte
ii Cirioro explosion. More comprom
ising literature was found in the
lodgings of the suspects. Besides
numerous receipts for making homos
the police seized letters and records
which they think confirm the reports
of an extensive conspiracy against the
mthorities throughout the larger part
jf Italy. The writers of the letters a-e
iupposed to have been implicated in
the plot whose head was Deputy de
Felice. Many of the papers will be
laid before the crown prosecutors, who
are expected to conduct the prosecu
tion of the socialist leader. Two of
the anarchists arrested had consigned
a box containing a bomb to a match
Among the leaflets seized was a red
and white poster which urged the
woiking people to revolt, throw open
the prison gates, pillage and set fire to
the shops and cut all the telegraph and
cable wires in order that the govern
ment might be prevented from calling
in regiments from the provinces.
Placards of similar import were posted
in several parts of the city, but were

A Hla aria Character.
Wash inoton, March 16. Francis E.
Brownell, a historic character of the
late war, died here clerking in the pen-
sion department yesterday. Hs was a

London, Maroh li. In the boue or
commons John Morley, chief secretary
for Ireland, insisted that there could be
no injury to Ireland through a tempo
rary suspension of the home rule bill.
If ho had supposed that the recon
structed ministry would not be ac
corded Its views on the Irish question
be would mo: be a member of tba
ministry. Cheers. Home rule, he
said, had neither been killed nor aban
doned, oct would take Its place In the
course of sequence as had been ar
ranged prior to Mr. Gladstone's retire
ment. As to the Irish party with
Jrawing from its support of the govern
ment, he was happy to say there were
no signs of any such disastrous and
mischievous events. There could be
io mistake in the minds of any who
bad read the speech made in the bouse
of lords by Lord Kosebery that he
meant to do all in his power to ac
complish home rule, besides reducing
the house of lords to its proper place as
the legislative organ is now recognized
to be in the m:nis of the English peo
ple. John Redmond, Farnellite, said tba;
tiever during his experience In parlia i
ment bad a more difficult or Uumillat
ing tak fallen upon a chief secretary
for Ireland than the present one, wbicn
put bira up to try the strength of his
awn character as a genuine friend of
Ireland to remove the impression
created by the halting and ambiguous
phrases of Lord Rosebery. Whatever
Mr. Morley might say, he declared,
Ireland would not trust Lord Rosebery.
He ( Redmond) repudiated Lord Rose
bery's doctrine that an English majori
ty was necessary for the passage of home
rule. The theory was insulting and
humilating to Ireland, which alone had
the right to decide. If Lord Kosebery's
doctrine was right the lords bad the
power to continue to throw out home
rule or any other measure toe house of
commons might pass. If that right
belonged to the bouse ot lords through
privileges of birth, then, he declared,
Great Britain would ring with the cry
for its aboltion.
Joseph Chamberlain said that the
unionists were satisfied with the ad
hesion of the government to their own
policy, as it gave a definite issue on
which to meet them on all sides.
Everybody, be thought, ought to be
iatislied, except perhaps Mr. Labouc
here, who was goiug about like
Diogenes with his lantern looking for
an honest friend.
Trial Senatorial Race.
Washington, March 15. After
eighteen years of service as senator
from the state of Texas, which period
will have elapsed at the conclusion of
his term, March 4. VM7, Mr. Coke has
decided that he will retire from public

desire to return to private life, he be
lieving that he has been 'sufficiently
honored by the people of Texas. That
he could be re-eleoted Mr, Coke says he
has no doubt, and that all the men wlio
have come out as candidates up to tins
time have done so under the condition
that he would not be a candidate. The
s tia tor remarked that all the candidates
would bave a free field, as he would
not be in their way.

noon Sunday a lifeboat waa descried
making for the cape signal station
which two bouis later proved to be one
be tnging to the steamer Brisco, cou
ta ing First Mate Mackey and four
men in an exhausted condition. The)
reported tbe Brisco lying about sixty
miles south southwest off Cape Race.
Tb y left her Friday, but after pulling
four hours It was discovered that the
compass had gone wrong. The com
pasi derect was not discovered until
the Brisco was again sighted after their
four hour's hard work. The boat was
again launched Saturday morning and
from 11 o'clock on that day until their
arrival at at signal station the men bad
not had a morsel of food to eat. They
also suffered considerably during the
uight from cold, and were slightly frost
bitten. First Mate Mackey made a
statement concerning the Briscoe's
voyage, showing that they left Ham
burg December 8, but were forced to
put back to Quteostown for repairs.
"We left there January 31," said he.
"and encountered terrific weather. The
decks were swept by the high seas con
tinually. Nothing was left standinc
but tbe two lower masts and the funnel.
She was a complete wreck. Uur supply
of coal ran out nineteen days after we
left tjueeustown. Then we began to
use up the furniture and other wood
work for fuel. The steamer Ulunda,
which sailed from Halifax February
27 for Loudon, took the Briscoe in tow
Friday, March 2, but left her at 8
o'clock the following morning, after
towing her 130 miles. Then a repeti
tion of our former experience set in
and we drifted along, using up all the
available woodwork we could find on
board for fuel.
"A new danger now confronted us.
The supply of food ran out and 'he
crew was nearly reduced to starvation.
There were no provisions on board say
a little bread, a small quantity of flour
and some peas. A email fire was kept
in the galley to prevent tjie men from
perishing from the cold. Ihe other
fires were let go out for lack of fuel."

for the Briscoe as soon as the above
news was received. The coast steamer

he has become disgusted with the un

spicuous in the debates. There Is,
moreover, considerable bad feeling In
the national liberal party. A rupture

St. I.ocis, March 13. A frightful
double tragedy occurred at 11 o'clock
in fie morning In a new building being
constructed at No. 34 43 Oregon avenue.
Lv Saturday Chris Studt, a carpenter,
who had been at work on the building
was given notice of his discharge and
left the building muttering threats
against his employer, Charles Wuensch.
,tudt stealthily entered the building,
carrying with him a double barreled
shotgun. He proceeded to a point
dfectly under where Wuensch was
bending over a bench on the second
floor, and fired one barrel of tbe shot
gun. The losd of buckshot almost tore
(Wuensch's bead from his body. Studt
then placed the muzzle of tbe weapon
against his body and pulled the trigger ,
eritb a short stick and tbe load of buck
shot tore a gaping wound in his ab

hospital, but died an hour later. Both
men were married and leave families.

business two years ago it has been

stored in adjoining rooms separated by
iron doors, but the flavor of lemon
spoiled the eggs, entailing a 1ms of

the business, sold all his stock last
November. A large amount of the

the failure. A large number of hands
were thrown out of employment.
Kansas City, March 12. Deldrich
Keusmann, husband of the woman who
was found dead in a vacant bou;e on
Baltimore avenue some three weeks
ago, and Theodora Hoffman, alia
Pauline white, an Inmate of a disre
putable house, were locked up charged
with the murder of Mrs. Kensmann.
From tbe evidence In the hands of the
police it appears that Kensmann has
been living a dual life, and that he
raurd ered his wife to obtain tbe ?5,O0
insurance on her life so that he could
consort with The Hoffman woman.
Kensmann, it is said, took his wife to
the vacant house on the pretext of
showing it to her with a view of rent
ing It, and there committed tie
dastardly crime. Theodora Hoffman
came to this country from Germany In
18J and went to Denver, where she and
Kensmann lived together. Later they
went to Omaha and finally landed in
Kansas City, where tbey plotted to
murder Kensmaun's wife. They both
deny complicity In the affair, but they
are being closely question"! and It is
expected one or the other will confess.

Nashville, Tenn., March 12.
George F. Fisher, for whom everv
officer in the country has been looking
for months in the hope of receiving
W.OUO reward offered by his parents foe
his capture and return to his home in
Evansville, Ind., walked into police
headquarters herein the afternoon and
surrendered binxelf, with the remark
that he was tired of bumming it and
wanted to go homo. Fisher was rather
a nice looking tramp, with fair com
plexion highly tanned, light blue eyes,
golden hair and a suspicion of a light
mustache His clothes and shoes were
travel worn and runty, but be left no
room for doubt as to his identity when
he told the story of his departure and
(subsequent tramp over the country.
Fisher is twenty years old, the son of a
wealthy farmer by his second wile. He
was sent to an uncle in Evansville to
b'- educated, but became dissatisfied
and without warning one night disap
peared. Three months he worked on a
farm near Henderson, Ky., fifteen
miles from bis home, under an assumed
iiame. Work gave out and be walked
to Hopkinsville, where he stayed some
time. A day or two ago he took to the
ciossttes and came south, arriving here
Saturday. He slept at the station house
under an assumed name, but was not
r -cognized. News of the find was
telegraphed to Evansville, where the
case has assumed tbe notoriety of
the Charlie Ross affair.

Washington, March 12, A rough
statement of the results figured ou in
the tariff bill is as follows: Tbe esti
mated receipts from customs In the
(amended tariff bill as reported to the
full senate committee ou linanoe
'amounts to ifl&,tfu0,0U0 in round fig
ares. From internal revenue, including
jthe Income tax and the additional tax
of 20 cents a gallon on whisky, as lm
' posed by ths sen me and other Increases
.over the house rates, it U estimated the
'receipts will amount to 103,000.000.
.This ft3.000.000 of Internal revenue tax
'is additional to the revenue derived
from these sources at present rates and
will make tbe entire receipts from in
ternal revenue as proposed by the sen
ate. Mt4.000,000. Adding to this amount
821,000,000 from miscellaneous articles
gives Ml 1,000,000 as the probable re
ceipts under the bill ss spproved by th
