WABHINOTON , May 20. ( Special Tolo-
/trnin / to the BKK.J B. C. Stubhs , general
traffic manager of the Southern Pacific , was
the first \\ltncssof the day before the Inter
state commission and was examined by Mr.
Tweed , council for the railroad , In support of
an application to have the temporary order
suspending the operation of suction 4 of the
law made permanent. Thu witness said that
beginning In February , li&O , there had been
a virulent , bitter war of rates between the
Pacific roads lasting up to the date of the pas
sage of the law. When the law was passed
the Southern Pad lie , to readjust Its rates ,
diminished them In manycases , butlncrcased
them In no Instance. The competition to be
met by the Pacific railroads was of three
kinds the sailing vessels around Cape
Horn , the Pacific Mall steamers
via Panama , and a now factor ,
the Canadian Pad tic , which connected with
Ban Francisco by means ot the 1'acilic coast
steamship lines. To brine all of its traffic
down to the level of competing lines would
simply end In the bankruptcy of the railroad
company. That was evident. As au average -
ago of one-half cent per mile would probably
meet the expense of freight transportation
between San Francisco and the Missouri
river , It paid to carry sugar eastward at this
rate , as ft avoided the necessity of hauling
empty cars from tno west to the east. Tills
rate was much lower than that made by the
Canadian Pacific. The immediate effect of
the application of the law had been a cessa
tion of business by all the mutes except the
Canadian Pacllic , the Pacific Mall and clipper
Hhlns , but the real Injury Inflicted by the act
had scarcely had time to develop. If it were
enforced , the effect would bo to cause the
roads to lose more by the reduction of Inter
mediate traffic than the gross earnings
amounted to on through trailc. ! The chair
man questioned the witness at some length
to learn his reason for fearing the Canadian
Pacific competition. He acknowledged that
its line was very much longer than the trans
continental lines In the United States. He
was nskud how could It make profit ? Tlm
chairman wished to see if the witness sup
ported the long and short haul clause. Mr.
Stubhs said ho did not know how much of
the rates the Pacific Steamship lines received ,
or how much was left tor thu Canadian Pa
cific. It was a matte. ' of public knowledge
that the Canadian Pacllic did not have bus !
ness enough to make a train load dally.

WASIIINOTON , May20. ( Special Telegram
to the OKI : . ] What may have been a sig
nificant hint was dropped by President
Cleveland at his reception this afternoon.
Among those who lingered till the crowd
had passed wore the wife of a well known
Georgia politician and the sister of an In
fluential southern editor. When the former
bad shook the president's hand she said ,
looking at him earnestly and hard In the
face , "Mr. President , I shook hands with
you personally a year ago , now 1 do so in the
name of the grand old state of Georgia. I
congratulate you upon having made a good
president ami I hope to see you hero in a
second term. " So heartfelt and earnest were
these sentiments expressed that it took Mr.
Cleveland several seconds to clear Ills throat
and reply. When ho aid so ho said : " 1
thank you sincerely , but 1 am afraid I will
never see the end of my present term. " The
ladles are puzzled to know what the presi
dent meant His tones wore In no scnso
jocular , and since the announcement this
evening that the provident and Mrs. Cleve
I'f land will go to the Adirondacks next week
for recreation and fishing , they believe ho
had reference to the condition of his health
Cleveland's Tompcranco.

A HclllRcrant Claimant.
WASHINGTON , May20. 1 Special Telegram
to the BIX. | The state department has been
In a state of seize for several days past. To
day there are a number of the clerks and
other employes who are armed to the teeth
In expectation of a hostile demonstration by
a claimant who demands the Intervention of
of this government In a little filialr that ho
has In Portugal. Some time ago a man who
said that his natno was Thulcr visited the
department and stated that ho had a valid
claim against the consul-general nt Lisbon ,
Mr. howls. Thulor said that his profess Ion
was that of an actor In a circus , and that his
hlef business consisted In placing a
laving stone on his head while another
. ( tor struck It with a slcdgo hammer ,
lo asserted that ho had been connected
vitii a circus In Lisbon , and that
> eing unable to collect his salary from the
nanaizers of the show , ho had appealed to
fr. Lewis. Ho claimed that Lewis had col-
octed the money duo to him , but ho had not
urncd It over. Ho visited the department a
number of times , and Insisted that Governor
' 'orter should compel Lewis to pay over the
mount claimed to bo withheld. It was
earned by the department that Thulor had
vldently been affected by the paving stone
iperatlons , and whllo in Lisbon ho had on
me occasion entered the ring and had beitin
.n Indiscriminate fusilado with a pair of re-
elvers. In consequence ho was looked
upon as a crank , and no attention was paid
to ills demands. Thulcr , alter many days ,
grew tired of this system In the state
department and at lust he determined that
Ills claims should receive attention. Yester-
: lny ho called on Governor Porter again and
insisted upon an Immediate compliance with
tils request. To enforce his demands , it is
laid , ho pulled out a pistol and threatened
hat tin less a letter was Immediately written
o Mr. Lewis ho would shoot everyone in the
illlcc. Ills method was effective and the
etter was Immediately written. Ho declined
o leave the building , however , until the
plstlo had been sent to the postofllco. To-
lay orders were issued to the messengers note
; o admit him aealn under anyclrciimstances.
But if he comes with a loaded pistol in hand
lie will probably force his way to the room ot
Assistant Secretary Porter once moro.

pectlng the result of their deliberations , but

An Extra Session.
WASHINGTON , May 20. [ Special Telegram
to the lii ! . | The talk about an extra ses
sion ot congress is renewed , but chiefly by
advocates of tariff reduction , who think that
the country demands lullef from taxation
and the release of a good deal of money
ocked up thereby In the treasury. For parti
san reasons democratic politicians generally
will opposn the Idea , because an extra ses
sion would Involve an additional OXDOUSO
for which the democratic party would beheld
held responsible , and then there Is a respon
sibility about an extra session which demo
crats do but cherish.

The Herald has taken up the question of
Liverpool customs Inspection of baggage be-
onglng to Americans coming to England.
Its system gives grounds tor severe criticism.
There was needle's delay by reason of In-
'fllclentand Insufficient officials examining
adlc's and gentlemen's luggage for djna-
: nlto , as tlio chief Inspector says. It Is both
aggravating and sometimes insulting. Uo-
cently some luggage ai rived In Liverpool
rom an Atlantic Incoming steamer , but was
detained for twenty-four hours before any
examination took place , when tlm
number of dutiable articles on the
American and a few on the
lirltish tariff lists are considered. Any con
tusion at the Liverpool custom house In
searching traveler's luggage , elevates the
ssiuo progress on the New York docks to a
degree of perfection. Thn aggressiveness
ana absurdity Identified with this Liverpool
process will cause a greater number of pas
sengers to disembark at Queenstown and cut
Liverpool , as the Irish customs officials arc
less Imperious more discriminating In sus
pecting American ladles of smuggling to
bacco , shirts or oven stereotyped silver , to
say nothing of dynamite. "

Herald Cable Special to the BKE. ]
A Jilend of General Boulangor requests mete
to state that according to precise information
which ho has just received the Interview that
appeared In to-day's Herald entitled "Frank
Words From Boulangor , " may or may not
express the general Ideas , but ho knows that
the general , who confines himself to the
strictest reserve , did not authorize the publl-
eatisn of that Interview. I , as Pari.s cor
respondent of the Herald , regret that the
person sent on this mission may have
said In his zeal more than was required.
Among the numerous people whom I am
compelled to select , the choice Is always
made of a man who Is known to be on the
file mil iest relations with the personage to bo
interviewed. For Instance , If 1 want news
from the Greek legation , I send a Greek ; If
from the Turkish embassy , 1 send a Turk.
In this Instance , following this rule , I send
a Frenchman to the French minister ot war.
This friend also states that General Bou-
langer intends to do his duty , and 1 think
that Is what the Interview expresses. But
whether the general Is In the minis
try or out of It , I bollovo that ho
is' the most Important factor In the
present situation , and I regret that
his friend should have taken exceptions to
the patriotic and really unselfish remarks
made by the general In his Interviews. And
to-day when this interview In the Herald Is
cabled back and reappears In the French
papers , In my opinion , General Boulangcr
will be still more tlio idol of the French people
ple an d tlie bugbear nf the Germans , as ho
goes out of office gracefully to render a ser
vice to his countrymen , not In ahull , as some
America n senators do now and then.

Chicago Selected as the Battle
Ground Hetwcon Capital nnd Labor.
CHICAGO , May ' .JO. From all parts of the
country dispatches were received to-day by
President Tappan , of the builders' exchange ,
and President Downey , of the master
masons , endorsing the plan of campaign
adopted yesterday by the building trades
conference. It was evident from the tele
grams that the majority of the bullueis of
the t United States regard Chicago as the city
where ! the master contractors are to fljrht It
out with trades unionism. In view of this
fact i , and after much telegraphing , the mem
bers 1 of the executive board ot the
National Builders' association , decided
to assemble In Chicago next Tuesday
and take : i hand In the struggle.
Theio is a visible disposition among Chicago
builders this evening to keep matters as they
now are. If possible , until the arrival of the
national committee1. Unless tlio situation
has by that time gruatly altered , the idea Is
to pusli matters then with the support that
the national organization can give In vail-
ous ways If It no choose. Contributions for
the new building interests council that Is to
enforce tlio card of principles ate coming In
already , many outside Individuals subscrib
ing to It. The first amount placed In
the hands of the chairman was from the
north and noithwe&t side brick manufac
turers. The building Interests council held
a meeting this afternoon to prepare a state
ment to the general public. Although the
opinion was not unanimous the council de
cided that there was no necessity for hurry ,
and that the statement should not bo Issued
for several days , especially as the master
masons , who stalled tlio light upon trades
unions , had not yet passed upon tho'card
of principles proposed. The assemblage
of the executive board or the national build
ers association aUo operated to postpone
action. Adjournment was taken until
Monday. Eight or ten prominent Iron man
ufacturers had an Informal conference to
day and decided to request Piesidont Crane ,
of the Metnl Works association , to call a spe
cial meeting of that body to take action upon
the builaing trades catd of principles. As
the association had 100 members nnd employs
20,000 men. large numbers of whom are In no
way connected with the building trades.
there Is a chance that tlio lockout and light
tor the card of principles may spread to
other Industries.

About two thousand men areaftecteddirectly

Strikes and Riots1.
PiTTSHuna , May 20. A serious phase In
the coke strike at Everson developed this
morning when a mob of three hundred ne
groes and Hungarian miners , armed with
bludgeons , suddenly appeared in the coke
yard at the Jlmtown woiks of Colonel Shoe
maker. Without any warning
they made a , savairo attack on
men engaged In drawing out from the ovens
there. Such laborers as could not escape
were cruelly beaten , one man being so badly
kicked that his llfo Is dospaiicdof. Having
destroyed all movable property the rioters
then marched to the works of James Cochran -
ran & Sons , and 'destroyed the moperty
there. The total destruction of property will
probably amount to over 550,000.
It Is learned this afternoon that some of
the olllclals of labor organizations are blamed
tor the riot this morning. It Is said they
advocated .such a movement on the part of
the strikers.
Street .Oars Tied Up.
i.iH , May 20. The street car
drivers struck this naming , and only one car
on each line Is belny run to preserve charter
rights. Tlio men ytstorday asked for an in

At noon the company had thirty cars run
ning , and the backbone of the strike Is
broken. Onlv seventy-live of tbo 125 men
joined the strike. Policemen guard the ears ,
and so far there has been no trouble. The
strikers are quiet and orderly.

II o Has a Narrow Escape From
Kingston Orangemen.
KINGSTON , Ont. , May 20. When the
O'Brien party arrived hero they were driven
to the Burnett house , where the crowd as
sembled and cheered the editor. Battery A ,
Dominion regular artillery corps , the Four
teenth ( Prince of Wales' Own ) , rlllcs were
held In their armories for emergencies ,
besides a largo number of special
constables and the ordinary police force.
Arriving at the skating rink , where the
meeting was to bo hold , crowds , all O'Bilcn
sympathisers , were lound gathered around
the bulldlnc. Policemen armed with re
volvers moved up and down and forbade any
body to blockade the cntranco to the hall. No
body attempted to do It. The sticet Is for al
tlio world like Bay street , Toronto , where the
attack on O'Brien occurred , worse , because
In addition to cobblestones , bilcks
are scatteied over tlio surface wlicro
now buildings aio being erected
The audience , which numbered aboui
1,200 , was very similar to that of the Uulster
tenant farmers , whoso custom It Is to listen
rather than applaud. After O'Brien hac
been speaking a low minutes the unexpected
and somewhat omlnus calm was for the first
time broken. At 0iO : ! o'clock , when Kllbrldo
began his statement , the first noise was heart
outside the hall , where several hundred men
and boys had collected , crying , "God save
the Qiieou , " and groaning for O'Brien.
Every cheer which went up Inside the hali
was answered by a loud roar and angry ro
spouse from without. Thecrowd outside had
now swollen to Immense proportions. Tlit
meeting was brought to an end and the pco
pie lett the building. The moment the or-
niiL'emen saw O'Brien theio was an up
roar and cobblestones descended like

A Ijond of Beer Seized.
Sioux CITY , la. , May 20. [ Special Tele
gram to the Br.n. ] Another Interesting ease
has developed In the whisky prosecution of
Sioux City and promises far-reaching results.
Last night Henry Fleck , the driver of the
Franz brewing city delivery wacon , was ar
rested by Constable Curtis while delivering a
load of beer. The beer wasslezod by the offi
cer and Fleck taken before a justice and ac
cused of transporting beer without having a
llncense from the county supervisors. Ho
gave bonds for appearance to-morrow. The
information under which the arrest was
made was sworn out by G. II. Cumralngs ,
president of the law and order league , and
the arrest was precipitated undoubtedly by
the recent decision of the attorney general at
Des Molnes sustaining a like proceeding
there , Under the state law the line
for conveying intoxicating llquoi.s without
license is S100 and costs. It was at once re
ported that tbo brewery people would tight
this now proceedure of the league bitterly ,
and accordingly this afternoon warrants for
the arrest of Constable Curtis and President
Cummlngs wore sworn out , the information
being filed by C. F. Hoyt , general manager
of the brewery. The constable is charged
with the robbery of beer and a wagon , and
Cummlngs of conspiracy to commit lobbery.
Sherilt McDonald served the warrant. A
searcli warrant was issued to search the
grocery of A. 0. Woodcock , where the beer
was found .stored. The outcome of this case
will bo watched hero and elsewhere over the
.state and northwest with great interest.

Mysterious Shooting.
IDA GnovK , la. , May 20. [ Special Tele
gram to thoBiE. | Yesterday morning about
half-past 2 o'clock the slumbering citl/ens of
Jacobs' addition were startled by a couple of
pistol shots , but luckily no ono was injured ,
yet it was a narrow escape for John Bleakly
and wife. Mr. B. was suddenly awakened
by a pistol report , and raising up In bed he
saw thu flash ot the discharge and heard It at
the same Instant. He and his wife got up ,
dressed and went to the neighbor's , and
while dressing he heard some one talkingand
walking upon thosidoualk. An Investigation
was made and a bullet hole was found
In thu south side of the House near the win
dow casing. The ball had penetrated the
side of the house.and struck the wall about ten
Inches above Bleaklv's head , and then fell
back upon the bed. He has the little lead pill
to show it was a twenty-two calibre. What
could ha\e been the motive of the shooting
is at picsent a mystery , but the general sup
position Is that some fellows had been a
little too full and reckless witli their shoot
ing Irons. No malice can bo accounted for
by Mr. Bleakly. A clo-o Investigation will
bo made. Other pistol shots were lieaid
about iho city during the night.

Trial of an Ex-Miniatcr in New Jersey
For IJIasphciny.
NEW YCIIK , May 20. | Special Telegram
to the BEE. I The trial of Charles B. Key-
nolds for blasphemy waslbegun In court of
o/er and termlner at Morrlstown , N. J. , yes
terday. Charles B. Reynolds Is about fifty-
four years of age , and was formerly an or
dained minister In the church of the Seventh
Day Advciitists. Ho was a prominent mem
ber of the Now York conference of this body ,
which Is strong. Ills ultimate espousal of
secularist beliefs caused him to sever his
connection with the church. Ho was scarcely
011 with thu old love before ho began working
for the new. Ho bought a big tent and started
out on an itinerant lecturing tour. Last
July lie landed in Boonton , intending to
make a tluee months' stay In that neighbor
hood nnd speak under the auspices of the
Liberal league. His efforts in Boonton u > -
suited in a small riot , in which his tent
was nulled do\ui about the ears of
lumselt and his congregation. Ills at-
tomptto procure the arrest of a minister and
live church elders whom he blamed for the
occurrence , resulted In tils own arrest on the
charge of blasphemy , and he was hound over
in the .sum of S500 to await the session of the
next grand jury. The prosecutor , however ,
concluded that there was net case against
him. In October , Reynolds published a
pamphlet on "Blasphemy and the Bible. "
ills attempt to distribute copies of this In
Morrlstown and Its vicinity resulted In his
again being indicted under an old New Jer
sey statute against blasphemy , and from Oc
tober till his trial yesterday was held In SMO
boil. Throughout the proceedings yester
day he was perhaps the coolest man present.
He smiled to the ladies In the gallery , many
ofhom weio from the Boonton Liberal
league , and occasionally whlspeied with his
counsel. The evidence for the prosecution
was the pamphlet Itself. Colonel Ingersoll.
who defends him. said ho hadn't any wit
nesses , but would make a few remarks. He
argued two hours in behalf of the liberty
of thought and speech , and took the ground
that thu statute under which his client was
indicted was not constitutional.
