WASIIIXOTOX. , March 23. fSpcclal Tele-
pram to the Br.E.J Every one was sur
prised lost nleht when It was announced
from the white house that the president had
perfected the board of Inter-state commerce
commissioners with the names ot Augustus
Schoonnmker of New York , and AUtnco F.
Walker , of Vermont. The appointment of
the other three members of the board wai In
accordance with general prediction , but
Schoonmakor and Walker had never been
hinted at or suggested by any one.
Democrats are very Indignant over the action
of the president In giving the Ionic term to
Judge Cooler , of Michigan , and southern
men re particularly angry because Mr.
Bragg , who Is a representative from that sec
tion , is appointed for only two years. Be-
ftldes there Is an exteislve erowl from men
who reside west of the Mbwl&slppl , because
of the fact that the president went no farther
west than Illinois for a member of the board.
The entire section across the mighty river
1ms been Ignored , and eve * the northwest ,
with all Its great railroad interests ,
is not represented except by a Michi
gan mnn , who can scarcely be said to bo
closely Identified with Wisconsin , Mlnno-
Rota , Nebraska or Iowa. Altogether the
board cannot be looked upon as an extremely
satisfactory ono , nor Is It as well constructed
as inlelit have been expected when It Is
known that the president gave so much time
and attention to the selection of Its members.
An tbo appropriation carried by the
bill provides for the salary of
thn commissioners from Jannry 1. each
one will find a quarter ot n year's
BHlary due him when he qualities. Mr. Mor
risen , however , could not be made a member
of the commission until after the adjourn
ment of conijrcrti , consequently there Is ques
tion as to his right to receive the salary previ
ous to tlio 4th of March.
The Star to-nlchl says that Judeo Cooley Is
to be president of the Inter-stato commerce
commission aid that this will accord with
the wishes of the president In the matter.
Of the Inter-stiito commerce board , Colonel
Willlnm H , Morrison is the only member at
present In the city. The other members are
expected here by Saturday nlfht ana the Im
mediate organization of the board Is ex
pected. It Is not thought that the commission
will be reliy to perform ltd functions In full
for some time to c me as the exact construc
tion to be applied upon the various provisions
ot the law Is at present a matter of grave
doubt. It will bo necessary first to perfect
the permanent TKanlzatl n f the board.
This will require some time , as it is I in pos
sible to iHdfO before hnndof the duties
which will to required ot tb commissioners.
Them Is a proa * deal of ptromag to b dis
posed of , and by th Urn * everything Is In
thorough wodclBK enter ttw intar-state con-
niorc * commiaeloQ win pr r a tarwm ot no
mall Important * IB the civil service * f the
government. A qiMaiUa has arisen as to the
tlfiht of the commlssloaers to draw salaries
from the 1st of January last Td appropria
tion was made f r m that date , and it is held
by some of the officials of the
treasury that n the 1st f Aoril there
will be due to each member * ne-fourth
ot a year's salary. If this proves to be the
case it IsprobAblethatMr. Mtrrlson will be
nn exception , as he was a momoer of con
gress at that time , and under the constitu
tion could not be appointed to an oillce
created by congress of which h was a mem
ber. On th other hand , Comptroller
Durham held that "Sunset"
Cox was tn titled
to salary as minister to Turkey as well as to
toay as member * f congreas f rom the date of
( ha resignation f Mr. Pulltztr , In suite of
tbe fact that Mr. Cox voted to Increase the
compensation of tne minister of Turkey.
Under tlio same clause of tbe constitution he
could not legally be appointed to a position
the compensation of whioh was Increased by
the congress of which he was a member.
T here are said to be nearly a hundred applications -
, plications tor clerkships under the comuils-
Blon already Hied.
The secretary of th navy has designated
Lieutenant A. U. Wloterhalter , of the naval
Observatory , formerly of Detroit , as the
United States representative to the Interna
tional astronomical congrass which meets'ln
Paris April 10. The oujeet of this con Kress
Is to perfect some plans for star charting the
heavens 10 bo followed by all of the great
observatories of the world. The delibera
tions of the congress will be of great value
from an astronomical standpoint There
prill be present representatives from all the
irinclpal countries of the world. Lieutenant
rYlnterhalter will bo ono of the youngest
men in the congress. He has , however.
proved himself to bo an able astronomer and
i careful student of tbo stars , lie will sail

The Vatican Does Not View It In
Favorable Light.

HOME , March ai. IXcw York Herald
Cable. Special to tlio 1JKE.I The part played
by Archbishop Croke In the Father Keller
affair has made nn unpleasant Impression at
the Vatican , where , although all credit Is given
to him for his patriotic Intentions , ho Is re
garded as a kind of cnfantc terrible who may
at ono moment compromise the church. The
archbishop's sensation Is very embarrassing
for the propaganda , which cannot ,
with all Its very real Irish sympa
thies , countenance It Icrnlly. Hut as
Archbishop Jacobin ! , secrctaiy of the
propoganda. remarked to mo just now :
"Until all the facts of the case nio before us ,
It will be prcmnturo to say such. Irishmen ,
however , have hot heads as well as good
hearts. I fe < ir If they eo on as now much
longer there will bo a civil war. The English
government. Influenced , perhaps , by the
landlords , seems bent on crushing the Irish ,
who are Inclined not to lot themselves bo
crushed. "
Archbishop Croko's Imprudence Is making
It difficult for Iho holy see to continue Its
present policy ot "masterly Inactivity" with
regard to Ireland. There Is not the slightest
wish at the Vatican to move a
finger on behalf ot England. The
Vatican has neither forgotten nor forgiven
England's trlcklness in the matter of tbe Er-
rlngton mission , but It cannot encourage any
open defiance of the law. And , It on in
quiry It should bo found that Archbishop
Croke has overstepped the limits permitted
by the Catholic church , he will doubtless bo
called sharply though perhaps secretly to
Cardinal Ulbbons , whoso tact and perspi
cuity have made him a great favorite In

England' ) ) Tory Presi Ridicules the
New York Meeting.
[ rojit/rfw/it / 1SS7 by Jamc * Gordon nenntU. " ]
LONDON , March 13. ! [ Now ork Herald
Cable Special to the BIE.J : The Dally News
of this morning devotes a column loan ac
count sent by cable of the Irish meeting at
Cooper union Monday. It gives extracts
from the speeches of Mr. Charles A. Dana
and ex-Governor Leon Abbctt and the fol
lowing from the Herald's editorial on the
subject :
' The ears which odron the heads of the
British government must have burned last
night , or there is no truth in the old
saw. The 3,000 people who jammed
Cooper Institute applauded to the echo every
denunciation of the policy of wholesale evic
tion by which Great Britain brings wretch
edness on Ireland and dishonor to herself. "
The Doily News adds that tlio other New
York papers make no comment on the meet-
The Evening News ( tory ) makes severe
comments on the ovnnt and terms the meetIng -
Ing a dodge to catch Irish votes.
The St. James Gazette , also tory , says :
" 'American sympathy with Ireland'is the
heading which the Dally News puts over its
account of Uie meeting held In Now York
yesterday. The sympathy in question was
manifested by about 3,000 persons , who as
sembled under the presidency of a newspaper
editor to protest against the coer
cive measures In contemplation toward
Ireland. It would be very astonishing
If , In a city with an Irish population ot half
f a million , 3,000 people could not be got to
gether to back np the Parnelllte conspiracy.
It would be still more surprising If there had
been any difficulty In obtaining the assist
ance of an American politician or two , anx
ious to catch Irish votes , and a couple
of newspaper men , eager to catch
the circulation of their Journals. The Her
ald , which has probably the largest Irish
clientage of any newspaper tn the world ,
warns us that this enthusiastic meeting indi
cates the real feelings of Americans on this
matter , but the llerald knows well that the
real feelings of real Americans , If they could
venture to express them , would be strongly
in favor of throwing three-fourths of the
persons who composed yesterday's meeting
Into New York harbor.
Gladstone's Reply to Dana ,
LONDON , March 23. Gladstone cabled the
following message to Charles A. Dana , New
York , In acknowledgement of the cable dis
patch sent him by Dana to inform him of the
endorsement of his Irish policy by the mass
meeting of citizens at Cooper union Mon
day :
I am very sensible of the value ot the sym
pathy which from the first we have received
from , as 1 believe , a larze majority of the
American people In our efforts to secure lust
measures of good government for Ireland a
sympathy which I feel sure will continue to
attend us until this just policy shall attain its
coming consummation.
Another Prinot Ordered Arrested.
DUBLIN , March 23. Judge Boyd has
granted warrants for the arrest ot Father
Uyan , of the Uerbortstown branch of the
National league , for contempt of court in

Warrants have also been issued for the arrest
of a number of other persons in Herberts-
town on the same charge.
Disposing of Plotters.
ST. PETERSBURG , March 23. It is reported

The Great Trial
Sioux UITV , la. , March 23. JSpeclal to the
UKE.I The great mnrder trial Is now fairly
on. After weeks and months of anxious
waiting tlio alleged murderer of llov.
3eonto C. Haddock has been arraigned In
lie district court and will be tried atonro for
ill llfo. Promptly at 9 o'clock this morning
Judeo C. II. Lewis convened court. No ob-
cctlon was raised , contrary to expectation
on the part of the defense , to Judge Lewis
ematnlng on the bench during the trial of
ho case. Lung before the hour appointed
'or commencement alt the available srmco In
the court room wes occupied by a crowd of
citizens and strangers. All classes were rep
resented showing the deep and wide spread
ntercst In the proceedings. John Arensdorf ,
.he defendant , was accompanied In the court
room by Ills wife and four of his small
children. Ho was neatly and stylishly
dressed , and had very much the appearance
> f non-concern which charactered his bear *
n < when his preliminary hearing was had In
the Justice's court. However , a close ob
server nnd one long acquainted with him ,
could readily discern a troubled expression
about his mouth. To all Intents and
jurposes Aicnsdorf is not concerned ,
jut ho is undoubtedly greatly troubled
nwardly. During the day both Arensdorf
and his wlfo have been on the alert , watch-
UK every step taken very closely. A general
surprise was occasioned Immediately upon
the case being called this morning when
United Status Attorney T. P. Murphy ad
vised the court that he desired t withdraw
from the case as associate counsel for the
state. Ho stated Unit ho did not reach his
conclusion because ol'nny misunderstanding
or unpleasantness but solely because the
prosecution was not able to pay him for his
services. Mr. Murphy has been connected
with the case for a number of uionttis and
much had been expected of him. His with
drawal at so late an hour is therefore ; all the
more to bo regretted and Inexplicable. Dis
trict Attorney Marsh resrets very much Mr.
Murphy's action and suggested to the court
the advisability of guaranteeing him a fee of
$400 at least. If ho would remain In the
caso. The defense Is evidently clatod over
this turn In aft a Irs.
At an early hour thin morning the work
of empaneling a jury commenced. The 100
lurors wore all on hand and twelve were
soon selected and ontorea the box. The ex
amination then began as to their qnnllttcn-
tlons , the questions being rigid. Few re
mained la the box at the adjournment this
evening. ICverythlns indicates that the 1m-
panoiln of the jury will consume several
days. If not IOBCOT. Af tor passing for cause
ihe state has .ten peremptory challenges and
the decease twenty , md tfcon they must ac
cept such jurors as the court passes. Both
prosecution and defence have now used half
or more of their peremptory challenges. It
was a noticeable thine to-day that the de
fense used their peremptory challenges
without a stint whenever a straightforward ,
honest , upright and conscientious
farmer was called into thn box.
Only ono or two ladles were noticed In the
crowded court room daring the day. Mrs.
Arensdorf and children did not appear dur
ing the afternoon. Leavttt , the informer , is
In the city , but does not leave his hotel ,
thinking probably that the outside air -would
not be beneficial. He need fear no danger ,
towever. as there Isa widely dKTerentteellng
icro now from that which prevailed six
mouths ago. _

ooth of the .schools.

cncc rrom a Stoical City ,
BOSTON , Mass. , March 17. [ Correspon
dence of the HEI : . ] Not a little Interest
centers In classic Boston anil still more
classic Cambridge , around the concert
which is to bo given to-morrow night In
Horticultural hall by tlio Harvard Glee
club , Uanjo club and Pierian sodality ,
under the auspices of the Classical club.
This concert is to bo given for the benefit
of the American school at Athens , an In
stitution which Americans in general are
InditTorcut about , but which Dr. Charles
Waldstein , the eminent archirologist , has
succeeded in rousing some interest in by
n Bourse of instruction and entertalninz
lectures. Tills school is an Institution of
which every American student ought to
feel proud , and a word in regard to its
history may not bu amiss.
Thd school was founded five years ago
for the purpose of giving American stu
dents a chance to pursue nioro advanced
classical studies than they could do to
advantage in our universities. Up to the
present time the school has occupied a
rented house and has received its entire
support from the annual contributions of
twelve or fourteen leading American
colleges. Besides the payment ot house
rent , library appropriations and inci
dental expenses , these colleges have each
in turn sent a professor to Athens who
acted as director for ono.year without ex
pense to tlio school. Under tins provi
sional arrangement tlio school has boon
doing good worn , with increased num
bers and every prospect of increasing
have been diligent and thoroughand their
work haa been cordially recogni/.ed at
home and abroad. Tlio coming year
will mark a now era in the history of tlio
It is no longer to live in a rented house ,
but is henceforth to have a homo of its
own. A royal edict from thn government
of Greece has given to the school a valu
able piece of land on Mount LycabcttiH ,
containing about an acre and a half.
This liberal gift inspired tlio pic-motors
of the enterprise with now zeal , and that
the land might be immediately made use
of , they supplied the necessary funds for
the erection and furnishing of n suitable
building , which will bo ready for occu
pancy by next October.
It is evident that the school could never
become n successful rival of the French
andGcrman schools there , if the director
were changed every year , but this dilli-
ctilty may now be considered ns over
come , since Dr. Wnldstcin has accepted
the position as permanent director , pro
vided a fund bo established for the ex
penses of the school and the salary of the
It lias boon a source of much congrat
ulation to Americans that while the
French and Gorman schools of Athens
have been for many years maintained by
subsidies from their respective govern
ments , the American school has had a
never failing source of beneficence , rich
er and wiser than any public treasury , to
which it could turn in confidence. Our
men of wealth have been willing and
oven eager to take the place of the gov
ernment in this particular.
Wo' may also pride ourselves in the
words of Dr. Lightfoot , Bishop of Dur
ham , and a distinguished English
scholar. He spoke in 1885 at a public
meeting in London , as fellows :
TIDE msuoi-'swoiiDS.
It now touches our honor as Englishmen
"very nearly that this scheme should be car
ried out without delay. France and Ger
many have lone been in the field. France
hasher school and Germany her institute ;
and even America has forestalled us In this
race. That new country , notwithstanding
the vast and absorbing interests of the
present , notwithstanding the boundless
dopes of the future , has been eager to claim
her part In the heritage. While all the civil
ized nations of the world , no after another ,
have established their literary councils In
Athens , shall Kneland alone be unrepre
sented at the center of Hellenic culture ? '
These words have boon fruitful and now
a British school stands on n slope ot
Mount Lycabettus and land adjoining our
It is eminently proper , in connection
with such a subject as the foregoing , to
say that the literary people around hero
and in college circles generally , are con
gratulating themselves that the now Col
lege Base Ball league has been formed.
A movement has been on foot for a long
time for an improvement in college base
ball , and at last tlio scheme has come to a
head. The colleges forming the now
league are : Harvard , Yale , Princeton
and Columbia' There will probably bo
no doubt in the future as to which college
lias the best team , as four games with
each will bo amply sufficient to deter
mine the superiority. Columbia can no
longer sav that Harvard is afraid to
admit her into the league , and Yale need
no longer fear that the smaller colleges
are leagued against her in order to let
some other team win the championship.
In short , the now league contests will bo
battles of peers , and they will never lack
interest for want of line playing on both
sides. The season will begin April 'M ,
with the Harvard-Columbia game in New
YorK , and end Juno 28with the Harvard-
Yale game in New Haven.
on the Boston & Providence railroad just
south of this city is only a repetition of
the horrors of White Ilivor junction
barring the absence of tire. The scones
immediately after the accident are too
painful to dwell upon , but sadder still in
ray mind , are the sad pictures at the
homos of the victims. Crape hangs at
many doors in Uosliudalo and Douham
and West Uoxbury. The accident is still
the all absorbing topic on the streets and
places of business in Boston , and one
hears everywhere the same remark : "It's
awful ! It'a terrible ! "
The scenes at the wreck are animated
in the extreme. Thousands of roho
hunters , men , women and children , visit
the place daily. If the people wcro al
lowed to do so they would very soon
carry awav the debris at the present rate ,
piece by piece. I met a little gamin on
Brooklmo street yesterday. Ho was cnr-
rvinc a big chunk of wood so largo that
he cSuld hardly lift It.
"Uin to do wreck , mister , " ho said.
"Got a relic. "
"And what are you going to do with
it ? " I asked. , , .
"IJunno , " ho answered , "guess I'll
take it home and nicbbo some old lady'JI
gimme half a dollar for it. "
Where the fault lies nnd just who is to
blame for the accident Is unfair to nrc-
lud e before tlio olliclnl investigation.
Public opinion has it that the bridge was
unsafe. A number of estimates have
been made as to the amount of damages
the road will have to pay. Such esti
mates are more or less problematical ,
as many cases will have to bo determined
by a jury trial. Some have put tlio
amount at $500,000 , while others estimate
a much higher figure.
