to Tin : BEE. | What the entire cost of the
centennial celebration will bo , it is Impos
sible to compute at the present time. It
seems pretty clear that the expenses of the
committee will exceed the money which has
Decn appropriated by the state nnd the city
: ogeth r with the subscriptions which have
boon secured by the finance committee. Ac
cording to the . ofllcial programme the sum
appropriated by the stnto of Now York , for
the purposes of the celebration , was $200,000.
About ? I25,000 of this , however , belongs to
tlio National guard , nnd ? 20,000 moro to the
jrand Army of the Republic , so that only
M5,000 goes to tlio centennial committee.
-Tho city government , however , appropriated
575,000 , nnd the voluntary subscriptions
have been about 545.000. This gives the
commlttoo an aggregate fund of
5175,000 , and out of this the expenses of the
parade , tlio maintenance of such troops ns
liavo not been provided for by the states to
wnleh they belong , the cost of the fireworks
und decorations , and the very heavy expenses
of the committee , incurred during the work
if preparation , must bo mot. Spacious onices
liivve boon maintained in tlio Stewart build
ing since last November , nnd n number of
parlors at the Fifth Avenno hotel have been
occupied the army committee since January
of the present year. Whan to these expenses
Is added n probable delldt in the ball and
banquet accounts it will bo seen that with
$17(5,000 ( the committee will probably not bo
nblo to meet its debts. The expenses for the
ball and banquet will undoubtedly ajrgroKato
? 100,000.
In addition , the buildings in Thirty-ninth
street nnd Seventh avenue will cost from
S1U,000 to $15,000 , which , of course , will hnvo
to bo charged uu to the entire cost. What
the deficit in the ball and banquet accounts
will be cannot bo estimated at present.
Whatever the deficit may bo , it will have to
bo met by private subscription. The money

sums appropriated by the different states for

It Grows More KovoUlnt ; ns the Facts
SOMCIISET , Pa. , May 1. The mysterious
tragedy In Jefferson township yesterday
grows more revolting as the facts appear. It
now seems more than probable that David
and George , two sons of old man Shauglis ,
who was sixty-five years old , hanged their
father , and that David , an hour later , shot
his young step-mother through the body ns
she was returning from the barn to the
house. The step-mother still lives and may
recover. The object of their crime was that
they might speedily como into possession of
the cstato , which is valuable.

LONDON , Mny 1. [ New York Herald
Cable Special to Tun liiiE.I This morn-
Ing's Times has the following special from
Its Berlin correspondent :
The sub-commlttco of the Samoan confer
ence is still busy with its work , und this Is
understood to bo the elaboration of the two
main projects ono a plan for the future gov
ernment of Samoa under a native ruler , , and
the ether a proposal for the constitution of a
tribunal .to consider and adjudicate on pri
vate land tenure In the islands , which Is In
the greatest possible confusion , and is any
thing but n correct index to the extent of the
various foreign Inteiests Involved.
It will bo remembered that the
Washington conforcnco on affairs
In Samoa ended abortively , mainly for
the reason that the United States would not
assent to the Gorman proposal to appoint
ono representative of the three powers con
cerned , this nominee being German , to act as
mandatory of the three states ; and now it Is
probable thnt the conference will decide
upon the appointment of a triamvlrnto body
of administration , or supervision in Samoa
to act as a sort of council to the native sov
ereign whoever ho may bo.
Tills will mainly depoud on the policy
of Germany ; but , meanwhile , the enlargement
of Malietoa the Germans
ment ex-King , whom
mans deported from Samoa to Hamburg and
back io the Marshal Islands is regarded
hero ns n proof of her desire to mnko a
good Impression on the conference. There
Is ono thing less clear than some others con
nected with the conference sitting here , and
that Is the attltudo of England on the Samoan
question. At Washington , England was do-
cldedly in favor of the course suggested by
Germany , and now thcro is nothing to show
that she is not again disposed , If anything ,
to prove n little moro complaisant to Ger
many than to the United States.
If this bo so it will be evident that the
English government knows on which side
its bread is buttered , and that
England and her colonies have
moro both to hope and to fear from America
with her future development , than from any
ether country under the sun. So reason ob
servers , who are profoundly convinced that
cordial friendship with the United States is
of much moro vnluo to England than is that
of any state in the European system , from
which Great Britain is becoming smoro and
more detached by reason of her growth into
colonial world-power , with over-widening and
brightening prospects of imperial federation.
The true foreign policy of England , so
argue the observers nbovo referred to , has
llttlo or nothing to do now with affairs on the
continent , but must concern itself with
everything connected with the states aud
colonies affected by those interests. From
this point of view , therefore , it is somewhat
puzzling to many to find Lord ( Salisbury lay
ing such an ostentatious stress on thcjcolonial
entente cordlalo , ovorywhero.wlth Germany ,
from whom , if it can bo properly considered ,
England has really nothing whatever
to fear , and llttlo or nothing
to hope ; thus incurring the risk , slight ,
though it may bo , in the present case , per
haps , of the estrangement of affection of
those who. in certain circumstances , might
prove to England troublesome opponents.
It Is not that the Samoan question , in Itself
is capable of producing the effects .hero
alluded to , but at some time its treatment
by England ought not to bo such as is calcu
lated to ruffle the sensibilities of either
America or of the Australian colonists ,
whoso disappointment could not , possibly ho
counterpoised by any amount of gratltudb on.
the part of Germany , as between nil Anglo-
saxon races beyond the Sea aud the Gorman
Tlio position of England Is nnalngous to
the attitude of Germany to Austria and Rus
sia , respectively , "Between whom } " said
Prlnco Bismarck to GortchaKoff at the congress -
gross of Berlin , "you must not force mo to
chooso. I repeat that the issues Involved in
the Samoan question are , by no means , so
very pregnant of high political consequence ;
but still , the treatment that the question
will receive , In the opinion of those well
posted to Judge , ought to bo the test of the
degree to which Encland has kept pace with
the true principles of political expediency. "

"It Is reported hare thit Sicrotary IJlaliio
has had n stroke of paralysis. "
The noovo startling words came by ' .tiro
from New York this morning , and when
known In ofllcial circles created quite n flutter
of excitement. Mr. Blnlno was nt that mo
ment' quietly reclining in his room nt the
Normnndlo ,
"Mnko the denial so positive , " said his private
vato secretary , when shown the dispatch ,
"that the story can go no further. There Is
not the least truth In It. Mr. Ulaino suffers
from lumbago and has boon suffering from it
for n week , but is being relieved rapidly. Ho
has hud nothing-that oven was remindful of
paralysis , and will bo at his desk In a day or
two. "
Mr. Ulalno's bloodless color and tlifnct
thnt ho was not well enough to enjoy attend
ing the celebration In Now York has caused
u few of his friends , after seeing him this
week to refer to his health In rather alarm
ing words. Ho Isqulto as well as usual , and
will , barring unexpected misfortune , bo at
his official dnskyears hence. Aside from the
sensational story about Mr. lilaino , there
was llttlo going to muko the day different
from Monday and Tuesday. The whlto
house was open and all was In readiness for
the return of the president to-night , but no
onicial business was transacted aud few vis
itors were soeu ,
A telegram was received during tlio day
from.Prlvato Secretary Hulford , stating that
tlio inhabitants of the whlto house would get
back homo about 10:30. :
Hain continued to pour as if the elements
were religiously bound to complete the
record of the almost continuous rainfall for
the entire week. It was Just a. week ago
that it began to rain , and the only cessation
was on Monday for a few hours. During
the past , eighteen days the fall of rain was
9.13 inches or 0) { inches over the average of
April. Tins evening it cleared , nnd old Sol
disappeared behind a cloudless horizon.
The streets nnd avenues IH-O walls of ver
dure and the parks are flower beds.
There was no cessation in the activity
around Assistant Postmastor-Goncrnl Clark-
son's room. Ho continued to receive dele
gations , examine applications and to write
the cheerful word "appoint" or shako his
head in refusal. There was n great deal
more writing than head shaking however.
Tlio rush for changes in the fourth class
postollieos is pretty nearly over. Tlio bulk
of the changes on account of partisanship
have been made. Those for Ihigrant mcom-
potency have also been made to a largo de
gree. The knotty questions und complicated
contests are being taken up.
"By to-morrow morning I hope to have my
index made up nnd to be able to tell what
has been dono. Till then , I hnvo n curiosity
an well na ftVi anxiety to know the result of
the work done within the past two weeks , "
said Superintendent Bell , of tha railway
mail service. "I think about all the changes
necessary to mnko the service efficient and
satisfactory to the people have been made ,
but if not , decapitations will continue. The
civil Horvico commission can furnish us
postal clerks now. Inasmuch as the great
bulk of thorn put In of late are the old repub
licans who were turned out , the service will
bo bettor from the very start , and I have in
augurated new systems for maklutr up the
malls on trains going into largo cities , by
which It will bo sorted ready for the carrier
delivery as soon as it arrives at the post-
ofllces , which will make the distribution
moro rapid and satisfactory. " A ffcw con
gressmen who have been waiting to have
changes made are fearful that their demands
have not been attended to , but when the re
sults aru known it will bo seen that all the
changes were made with a view to improving
the service , Superintendent Boll has per
formed wonderful work.
Comptroller of the Currency Lacoy. of
Michigan , took the oath , assumed the duties
of hU ofUco and was introduced to his em

from Now York , was dismissing live watch
men of the treasury and installing as many
republicans. A. C. Toner , the new appoint
ment clerk for the department of the in
terior , was at the same tlino assuming bis
official robes.
At the war department an incident oc
curred which furnished spice for the day. A
serious-looking man , of middle life , entered
the secretary's ofllco and announced to Acting
Secretary Bennett that ho was the secretary
of war , and took Mr. Proctor's seat and
began issuing ordcis * for the appintment and
dismissal of employes. It was immediately
discovered that ho was the same man who
yesterday appointed himself major of the
police and usurped the odlcoof Major Moore ,
now in Now York , and ho was taken to the
Third precinct station , where ho will bo ex
amined for insanity.

LONDON- , May 1. Tlio direct examination
of Pnrncll was .concluded to-day. Pnrnclt
declared ho had conducted nn Irish ngltntlou
constitutionally. His croas-o.vnmlimUon was
then begun. *
Parnoll on cross-axnmliintlon , denied that
the Irish World overcollected money for the
parliamentary party , The Irish World hhil
been Jiostllo to himself and the parliamentary
party since 1SS2.
Attorney-General Webster here produced
extracts from the Irish World , praising Par ]
noil's action In parliament alter 18SJ.
Sir Charles Kussull , counsel for the Pnr-
nollltos , put in evidence some extracts from
that impor which were advowo to Parnoll.
The cross-examination then rontlniiod.
Paruoll admitted knowing Mooney , other
wise known as "Transatlantic , " Mooney
wrote violent articles , still , witness would
not object to receiving Mooney's ' tributes to
assist the party , If ho did not publish articles
advocating murder. Witness had held no
communication with Patrick Ford since IbiSl.
Parnnll emphatically denied that Ills Irish
schemes over included a coalition with vuo
Fenians In order to expel the landlords from
Ireland. Ho certainly aimed to destroy
landlordism , but not to drlvo Individuals
from the country , and never had any idea of
resorting to illegal means. Ho did not recol
lect meeting Dayitt and John O'Loary in
1878 and discussing with them a possible alliance <
lianco between the nationalists nnd the
Fenians. Ho had no notion that the national
fund In America and the skirmishing fund
were identical.
Attorney-General Webster hero read q
violent manifesto signed by John lovoy and
others nnd Issued at Dublin.
Parnoll declared ho never hoard of It bo-
foro. Ho had met Uovoy , Hreslln , Finortj
and Alexander Sullivan and a nubor ol
"physical force men. " Ho said ho would
frankly avow that ho fell It was no part o !
his duty to exclude any ono from Iho loagua
on account of their antecedents. Ho wnntod
to include in it all Irishmen , and trusting
every section would accept the now constitu
tional form of agitation ho had aimed at nuk
ing tlio "physical forco" men to abandon
their movement and to accept his. To shut
tiio constitutional door in their face because ,
they did not immediately agree would
hnvo been very foolish. Ho did not
recollect making a speech nt Lynn , Mass. ,
in which it was alleged ho had said that
when England was beaten to her knees the
time would nuvo como to realize the idea of
tlio nationalists. Ho admitted that if ho had
used those words lie must have been think
ing of Hiich methods of wnrefaro in the
event of constitutional .agitation falling.
At Troy , somebody-offered him $5 for bread
nnd ? JO for load. Ho did not object to tlio
offer because he thought tlio giver only

to consider the condition of the cotton man

ndvisunllity of n permanent organization
nnd whether the cotton bagging could bo
substituted for Jute bagging. President
HicUman made an address on the state oC
trade , in tha course of which lie Bald : "Wa
should control the markets of South America
nnd Mexico , nnd to accomplish thin end wo
should invoke government aid. Our flag
should flout over every bale which leaves
our ports. The British government is taking
ndyantago of the supposed trouble between
China nnd our government , with the hope of
prejudicing that country against our goods ,
and has passed a law requiring every ploco
of goods manufactured hi this country and
passing through England to China to bo
branded 'manufactured in the United States
of America. ' Wo would like to have our
Koods roach China without passing through
Unglnnu und without the use of English bet
toms. Give us American ships. Lot China
see Iho American flag. If our government
would lend n helping baud in placing our
products In foreign lands it would not ) ) o
long before you would see a 'manufactured
In the United States of America , ' on goods
made in Manchester , England. "
Uesolutlons were adopted to memorialize )
congress to grant subsidies to steamships
to Central nnd South America , also pledg
ing the southern manufacturers to pay 10
cents per hundred pounds mure for stuff
baled in cotton or other light ba clng than in
Jute bagging. The impression scums to pre
vail that the baling of tlio cotton crop in
cotton bagging Is not altogether practical ,
buttho spirit of the manufacture U to do
nil in their power to aid the planters.
