gram tothcBEK.j-A newspaper war hero
barely escaped resulting In a tragedy to-day.
The Times and tlioInter-Ucpubllcs have been
giving vent to strong expressions of bad
feeling for some time. Saturday evening
the Inter-Uepubllcs Intimated that the Times
was endeavoring to swindle Its patrons. The
Times replied Sunday morning that such a
statement came with bad grace IromtAO
men who belonged in a penitentiary rather
than In a newspaper ofllco. The two men
referred to were George B. Loving , manager
of the Inter-Hepublics , and the other H.
Stein , an emj > Ioo on the paper who Is under
bonds awaiting trial on the charge of for
gery. Loving and Stein hunted all day
Sunday for Juan S. Hart , the editor of the
Times , but ho was out of town most
of the day and did not happen to meet them.
On Monday the Inter-Itupublics called Hart
a "liar , poltroon and cur. " This morning
Hart saw Stein , whom ho believed to be the
instigator of the attack , coming down the
street , and started after him with a double-
barreled shotgun , an employe on the Times
named Wlmberly going along with a pistol
to prevent both LovlBg and Stein from tak
ing a hand at once. IIart Intended to pro
pose that both he and Stein bo disarmed and
that they then light it out with fists. Hart
called to Stein twice to throw up his hands ,
but ho ran Into a store and stopped In a
stairway , pulling his six-shooter to be ready
for any ono who should come. Loving stood
across the street , but made no motion to take
part In the affair. Hart went back to the
Times oflico with his gun. The city marshal
nnd other otlicers soon appeared and arrested
Stclii , Hart and Wlmberly , who were brought
before a justice and required to give
peace bonds for one year. Each gave the
bond demanded. Stein was brought hereabout
about a year ago charged with forging a
check on the New York Sun. Ho lay in jail
here until about May , when ho was released
on ball awaiting trial. A requisition from
the governor of Mississippi , whore Stein Is
wanted on another charge of forgery , awaits
the disposal of the case here. Stein killed a
man at Kansas City a few years ago and has
n bad record in many locations in the west.
Ho said last week that ho had been employed
by the New York Herald to visit Bavispe ,
Mexico , and Investigate thu earthquake re
sults in that region.

CHICAGO , July 20. The city authorities
having failed to rid the harbor ot the collec

but principally by the notorous "Blackjack"
Yattavv , as floating saloons , disreputable
dance houses and gambling dens , near the
government pier. The United states authori
ties yesterday called In all the owners and
fined them heavily for neglecting to display
the proper signal lights on their various
crafts. This was the only way In which they
could bo reached. All agreed to abandon
their calling and take away the boats except
"Black Jack , " who was obstinate. The
United States revenue cutter was called
down from Milwaukee , and to-day confisca
ted Yattaw's notorious "bumboat" and towed
It Into the river. At the last moment Yat-
taw paid the $200 line assessed against him ,
but was surprised to Immediately receive
notice of another of the Fame amount tor
failing to display lights last night after noti
fication. This he also managed to pay , and

Colorado Cattle Men Take a Very Im
DB.vvr.H , Col. , July 20. [ SpecialTelegram
to the BEE. ] A meeting of Texas cattle
men , among whom were Messrs. H. C. Tardy
& Co. , ot Tc\as , and agents representing
Simpson's Cattle company , of that state , was
held In the rooms ot the National Cattle
Growers' association and It was unanimously
voled that cattle now traveling northwest
ward bo turned backward into Texas. Of
cattln now on the trial 20,000 head have al
ready entered Wyoming and the remainder ,
50,000 In number , are reported In the vicinity
of the Arkan&as rlv er. This action Is n most
Important ono as It practically removes from
existence forever a long used cattle trail for
the transportation of beef. Such n decision ,
fraught with such vital results , was
only made after it became ap
parent that no other remedy
could bn depended upon , lu the spring
these cattle , aggregat'iis 70,000 head , were
sUrtod from the country extending 200 miles
south of Fort Worth with Montana and Da
kota ns oujectlve points. The cause of the
trouble lies principally in the exaggerated
nature of the Information affect In it the block
market. After thn herds had started last
fall , It became known tuat W\oming wanted
no cattle whatever and besides was hostile ,
owing to the rumoied existence of Texas
fever. Colorado had a sufficient number to
supply her own demand while Montana and
Dakota Instead of famMiiug for beef had
plenty of steers of their own raising. The
emergency was such that the principal oattlo
owners wliose stock was on the tr.tll hurried
to Denver to consult over the matter and
the above was the result accomplished. Mr.
Tardy and W. K. Davis of Hugo. Colo. , who
were at the meeting , left for Hugo , where
there will bo a meeting of superintendents
and drivers along the trail. It in thought that
the straggling herds between the Arkansas
river , where tha great herd Is now grazing ,
and the Wyoming line will be brought to
Hugo and thence shipped to Kansas City. In
going back the cattle now on the Arkansas
will have to travel 800 miles before they reach
their own ranee. Had they not been htopped
the whole 300 cattle would have been In Wy
oming in September. Tne failure to got cat
tle to market will have the cITect of putting
about $2000,000 worth of beef back Into
Texas , which is already over-stocked , thus
driving prices down to a ruinous liguro. and
perhaps bo the cause of the failme of several
The Biff Deal.
NEW YOKK , July 20.-A Wall street cir
cular says : The efforts of the Ives party to
form a syndic ito are said to have been suc
cessful and one Is said to have been formed
in which Drexel , Morgan & Co represent Jay
Gould , and shaies have been taken by Fahne-
stock , representing the First National bank
party , and Irving A. Evans of Boston , rep
resenting ttio Atchison company. Alfred
Sully , It. K. Dow and Simon Berg are also
said to bo members of the syndicate. No
definite Information can be obtained regard
ing Garrott's Intended trip , Europe , and it
is said that circumstances may compel him
again to postpone It. Jay Gould was re
ported to have boon In conference with
Drexel , Morgan < fc Co. all day , but If he was
there his presence was kept secret.
PiUT.ADKLrniA , July 20. The Record to

all the negotiations have terminated. The
syndicate which was to acvulre a largo
block of stock In the Baltimore & Ohio
railroad company in such a way as
would be beneficial to all parties
and railroads concerned , did not at
the appointed time comply with their
engagements , and all engagements or nego
tiations with them are now absolutely at an
end. The statement in some of the papers
that 1 purchased large blocks of Baltimore &
Ohio stock Is a mistake. The Baltimore &
Ohio railroad company , Its properties , in
cluding its large telegraph system , and the
ownership of Its stock , remains now as they
were at the opening of negotiations.
Target Practice With Heavy Guns.
NEW YOIIK , July 20. [ Special Tele
gram to the BHK. ] During the target prac
tice In Gardiner's bay , Monday , the eight
Inch bow and stern barbette pivot guns on
tlie Atlanta recoiled with such force as to
tear lose the track on which they turn , and
also to rip up a portion of the heavy gun
deck. These guns are the heaviest afloat In
the service , and those on the Atlanta are thu
hrst of them to be tested on board of a ship
by naval officers. The full charge is 120
pounds , but only UO pounds were used during
the tiring. Live sheep was used to ascer
tain just how near men may stand to the
muzzle of these great guns when they are
fired without being killed by the concussion.
At one discharge a sheen was blown clear
over the hatchway aud killed.

July 20.-Speclal [ to the
During the discussions ot the various
appropriation bills at the capital last winter ,
strenuous efforts were made by the friends
of Alaska to induce the f ramers of the bills
to make adequate piovlslou for the support
of the common schools of the territory. In
order to glvo their appeal more weight , they
secured the services of the governor of the
territory , Mr. Swlnoford , and that gentle
man made an eloquent appeal In behalf of
thv Indians and Aleuts , who form the greater
portion of the population over whom ho is
appointed to rule. These ellorts were only
partly successful , and the total amount ap
propriated for educational purposes In
Alaska was only $25,000. Governor Swine-
ford said before ho loft Washington that this
sum was utterly Inadequate , and ho regretted
thn parsimony of congress , exceedingly , In
neglecting the educational wants ot his pee
ple. In spite of the meagre amount ot the
appropriation , It seems tint even the small
sum available is to bu still further decreased
by outside expenditures , and that It is to be
drawn upon to furnish the means for a
ummer junket for at least ono United
tales'official. Tlie hrst comptroller of the
rrasury has just decided "that if the secro-
aryot the Interior decides that it Is ueces-
ary the commissioner of education may
Islt the schools of Alaska , and that the ex
cuses of the trip miy be paid out of the op-
iroprlation for the support of the schools of
ho territory. " Under tills opinion Commls-
loner Diwson will start tor Alaska this
week. As there are a full corns of United
tales as well as several representatives of
Icomosynary societies on tlie spot to see that
ho funds are pioperly expended , It seems to
JO entirely unnecessary for Mr. Davvson to
neglect Ills duties he.ro during the time
equired to make the trip. When it Is con-
idf red that this trin will cost in tlie neigh
borhood of 81,000 , to be taken from the
chool fund , tills trip becomes a positive
wrong to the people of Alaska.
July 20. The lutor-state
onunission to-day dismissed the following
ases : The Chicago & Alton against tlio
'ennsylvania , and the Kock Island against
lie New York Central ; F. D. Hardln agimst '
ho Chicago , St. Paul , Minneapolis te Omaha ,
\nd M , N. Fulton against the same , both for
alleged discrimination on rates.
The cases of the Alton aud Bock Island
oads dismissed are the noted complaints of
hose companies against the Pennsylvania
and Now York Central roads respectively
or discrimination In the "boycott" against
he complainants because of their refusal to
subscribe to the agreement of the trunk lines
lot to pay commissions to ticket agents.
Tins "bojcott" consisted ot the refusal on
he part of thu defendants tn sell through
.Ickeis over the complainants' roads from
Jhtcaeo to Kansas City and St. Louis. Thu
leclsion of the commission sa > s , in part ,
alter detailing the circumstances of the case
at great length , that the officers of which it
ms cognlanco are not in contiaveutlon of
.he provisions of the act to regulate coin-
no rce. The law in this Instince does not
require one railroad company to sell through
: lckets over the road or another company. In
the absence of statutory authority one road
can only sell tickets and check baggage over
another by mutual agreement. It the com
panies can atrce upon this , they have the
right to do so , and by this agreement become
inter-state carriers. But If they can not agree ,
the act does not undertake to coerce them.
Assuming , for the Baku of argument , that
through tickets may be deemed "facilities'1
for receiving , forwarding and delivering of
passengers lo connecting lines , carriers are
only required to afford reasonable , proper
and equal facilities.
This presents the question of whether the
layment of commissions is in Itself or as
.ncldontal to the enjoyment of facilities ,
reasonable and proper within the purview
of the statute. These commissions are gratu
ities to Induce special efforts for the company
paying them. It the statute does not give
one company authority to subsidl/o the
agents of another company , and If the
practice is Injurious In its effects , it
certainly cannot DO reasonable and
proper. The statute does not divest a rail
road company of this exclusive rlt'ht lo
control its own internal affairs , to employ its
own agents , to regulate their duties , com
pensation , etc. With the legitimate exercise
of these powers another company has no
concern and no right to intermeddle. The
defendant companies have forbidden their
a rents to receive commissions from the com
panies , and directed them not to sell over the
roads 01 the companies that retnse to recog-
nl/o this corporate authority , but Insist on
subuldi/lng agents. In these directions
the defendants have not transcended their
reasonable ) lights. They might rest upon
these rights , but they go further and show by
evidence the practical effects of eouimisslons ,
and that their natural and usual tendencies
are to a variety of abuses. A practice capa
ble of producing and having a tendency to
produce such results cannot bo reasonable or
proper , nnd a railroad company Is fully justi
fied in the use of all lawful precautions to
protect Itself and its agents against such in
vasions ot its corporate authority and its
The source of the complainant" ' position
Is clearly presented by the distinct assertion
of the right of one corporation to employ and
pay for its own Interest an othcicl servant of
another corporation to which his service Is
primarily and exclusively duo. A theory of
this character ouirht not to bo and is not
recognized In business affairs or In official
lite. Tlio defendant companies , therefore ,
have not contravened thn provisions of the
act. The complainants , by refusal to refrain
from the pavment of commission , voluntar
ily excluded themselves trom the reasonable ,
proper and equal facilities olfered to them In
common with other connecting lines. Tlie
complaints are all dismissed , all concurring
except Commls'loner Morrison. Opinion by
Commissioner Morrison , in his dissenting
opinion , takes a contrary view of the points
mentioned above and Bays. Independent of
the legality or any question of domestic
policy between companies , the public
( s entitled to that reasonable and
equal facility afforded those who seek the
ronwtltirf lines. U is no answer to the pub

"Rows Slieppard'1 Returns.
WASHIVOION , .luly M.-Speclal [ to the
BEF , | The old frequenters of Washington
are just now consumed with surprise at the
change In the tone of public comment on the
course of ox-Governor Alexander Slieppard ,
who has returned after several years of vol
untary exit" , to the scenes of his formei
power. When Sheppaid resided hero tbc
territorial form of government existed , lit
was governor ot tlio "territory" and he ruled
the people with a rod that made them sore ,
He determined that the streets of Washing
ton should be the fii st In the world and tc
carry out his idea hundreds of men were em
ployed In cutting down grades and straight-
suing crooks lu the thoroughfares and other
wise Improving thu appoarancu ot the ther
very uninviting city. Slieppard was sever a
jeart abend of the rest of the rest
dent of Washington. They were qult <
willing that the streets of the city should b
tlie beat In the world , but the taxes cense
quout upon the ImproTcmeuta did not sul
them In the least. It If doubtful If there was
another municipal ruler sounlverwlly cursed
as "Uoss Shepard. " Ho controlled every-
tlilntr , and there was not n paper in the city
at the time with the ability to combat his
sway. Most of them were ulthrr owned or
controlled by "tho rlngt" Hut the people of
Washington found moans of denouncing the
obnoxious governor , and there was a feeling
of profound satisfaction when at last ho
ruined himself and left the city. Hut the
seeds which ho had sown grew and throve.
The improvements which ho had planned
and partly carried out were
perfected.Vashlngton changed gradually
from a ditty mud-hole , or a dusty village ,
according to the season , to the city which it
Is to day , than whicn there Is none more
handsome lu the country. As the city grew
tlio sentiment of animosity towards Sliep
pard subsided until to-day everyone , with
the exception oCa few poor fellows who wcro
"Improved" out of their small properties ,
swears by , Instead of at , Alexander Shop-
pard. At present ho Is remaining at his
country place a few miles outsldo the cltv ,
where no Is trying to recover trom severe in
juries lecelved at his Mexican mines. When
ho shows himself on the streets of the city ho
will bo royalty received and may think that
he has always been regarded as the founder
of Washington's property.
WdsmvoTON , July 20. A report received
at the navy department from the commander
of the now cruiser Atlanta says : "When
the eight-Inch rllles were fired recently at
Gardner's bay with cliaices Intended to Im
part a velocity of 2,000 feet to the projectile ,
the clips circles failed to hold the carriages
satisfactory. The clips of two six-
Inch guns also failed to hold the car
riages upon Urine. These carriages
nud their appliances worKtd satisfactory
upon trial at tlio proving grounds , the eight-
Inch guns being tired at least twenty times
with heavy charges. Tlio conditions in
which guns are fired on ship board , however ,
are materially different from those at the
proving tests and in this Instance the officers'
ordnance bureau sajs the failure of the
fastenings may have resulted In a largo part
from tlia sprlne of the arched deck and
the steel sides of the vessel. "
This is felt to be particularly true In
the case of six Inch guns , and the unfavor
able result of the trial ot these guns confirms
the oidnanco otlicers in their opinion that an
ordnance ship for the trial alloat of the now
xuns Is absolutely necessary. In this case
tl.o damage appears from the roportto be con-
lined to the failure of clips and circles , but
t will take some time to replace them with
icavler fillings. Meantime the board ot
urvey will bo ordered to ascertain ofllclally
ho facts In the case.

at a nnnitict.
LONDON , Julv 20. Parnell and many of
his colleagues were entertained this evening
at a banqunt by the National liberal club.
The health of the queen was proposed by
Dillon. The guests all arosu and drank the
the toast. Parnell ctiloglrcd Gladstone and
wondered how long Englishmen would bo
content to see the government march up hill
and down again. The KiiglMi liberals might
be assured that theii exertions would not
bo wasted. Although In Ireland extreme
misery had bcon suffered during the past
eighteen months , crime had diminished and
people had turned to constitutional methods
of adjusting their grievances instead of
phvsical force. If the liberals failed
to carry out their programme , their
gicat reward would bn , that they
had banished violence , revenge ,
outrage , and brought a nation to depend
upon lawful methods of redress. The dimi
nution of crime proves the gratitude of Ire
land toward the liberals and ho hoped that
when oppressed , trampled upon and evicted
they would retaliate nlowly. They should
remember that the tory government would
not last forever ,
