WASHINGTON , D. C. , May 4.
There Is going to bo n first-class fracas
over tlio selection of n chairman to the dem
ocratic national commlttco to All the va
cancy created by the death of Mr. Harnum.
No sooner did the wires from Connecticut
spread the news of Chairman Bnrnum's
death than the friends of Senator Gorman ,
of Maryland , began to sot IIP the pins for the
position made vacant. They began to telegraph -
graph to members of the national committee ,
nnd these who had Influence with them , urg
ing the necessity of Senator Gorman's selec
tion'"as a recognition of his past services
and n proper place for his abilities in thu
future. " The wires wcro kept busy for
forty-eight hours , nnd the arrangements
wcro being completed admirably for tho-
tariff protection wing of the party , when
Speaker Carlisle , Mr. Mills , the Breckln-
rldges , and other free traders m the lower
house of congress , heard of the work , and
Jumped to the telegraph to institute a coun
ter movement. They were alarmed , and said
the Gorman faction were laboring in the In
terest of Governor Hill for the presidency In
1893 , whllo Mr. Cleveland was the man
wanted by the bulk of the party. Counsel
on the part of the wlso heads was asked.
Delay was the thing desired. There was no
ricccsslty tor speedy action. The minority
o'f the party should not rul.3. Democracy
meant "tariff reform , " and not a step back
ward from what It hns been. These were
the sentiments sent out by the Carlisle-
Mllls-Brccitinridgo crowd In opposition to
Gorman. It had an effect , too. A meeting
extraordinary of the rational committee was
the thing desired by the Gorman crowd , if a
pledge could bo secured in advance for the
election of their man. There is no call yet.
It is not likely that any stop will bo taken
for some months now. Meanwhile , the knif
ing -will proceed. It is believed thnt it will
result In a split in the tariff and anti-tariff
factions of the party , whether a successor is
elected to Baruum now or two years hence.
THE rosTorriCE SITE.
Supervising Architect Wlndrlm returned
his desk and had consultation
to to-day , a long
tion with Congressman Council in relation to
the Omaha building sito. Ho has not yet
Riven any Intimation of what his decision
will be , and said to THE BEE correspondent
this afternoon that it would probably be
several duys before ho will got his paper * in
Bhupo to present them to the two mon who
form the commlttco with him. It is not
likely that the decision in this matter will bo
reached before tbo latter part of next week.
STRIKING A 1IAI.ANCR.
It is stated in ofllclal circles that a way
has been found to bring together Senators
bhcrman and Quay , It will bo remembered
that the latter senator took offense at the
former for urging ex-Governor Hart , , of
Ohio , for the position of solicitor of internal
revenue when Senator Quay contended that
It was agreed between him and the Ohio
delegation that Judge Gllkinson. of Bristol ,
Pa. , was to have tno place. Gllkinson is to
bo made judco for the United States court
for the northern district of Florida , so It is
stated. Senator Sherman1 * friends say that
the Ohio senator did not ask for Gilklnson's
nppomttnnnt , and that it was brought about
v-lhrough the personal mflucnco. at Senator
Quay and Is the outgrowth of a contention
between th6 factions in Florida. The Flor-
_ lda republicans presented two candidates
-JiPna for a while it seemed as though they
could not como together. At a time when
* r.they were farthest apart Senator Quay pre-
* 'seated Judge Gllkinson , and the report goes
' 'that ' ho' was accepted. Gilklnson , if appointed -
, pointed to this place , will have a bettor berth
' than ho would have received had be been
appointed sallcitor of internal revenue.
NEI1UA8KA T > EtK < J.VTE3 WILL CONFER.
Representative Dorsoy was hustling
around the wblto house and the departments
in the interest of his
to-day working con
stituents who wantofllco. Ho stated that ho
bud not been as successful as ho wished ,
pwingtothc strong civil service leaning of
the administration. Ho found himself barred
out in many places by tha extension of the
civil service rules. Mr. Dorsoy will go homo
como time next week. It Senators Mu dor-
BOU and Paddock arrive hero in time there
Will bo a confcrenco between them and
Representatives Connell und Dorsoy in re
gard to the distribution of the larger federal
ofllces for Nebraska. They intend to try to
agree upon some one of the four or five can
didates for a position on the intor-stato com-
tnerco commission. Groff and Grevis are
being urged upon the delegation for recogni
tion. Representative Laird Is not expected
Co attend the coufcronco us hu continues very
ill and unable to give personal attention to
HOI'B FOR THE HUNGRY.
Those who have talked most to the presi
dent ana tbo members of his cabinet during
the past three days , say there will bo little ,
If any , ground for complaint on the part of
the most anxious republicans who want
office , bccauso "changes have not been made
. vapidly enough. " It is understood that now
'the ' ofUco-seeKors and men in congress have
thinned out pretty well the president and his
' counsellors have nn opportunity to take up
the complicated cases which have blocked
the way to many appointments , nnd get them
, off their hands. Tno reason thcro have not
Vocn more changes mode in the consular
Borvice , when Secretary Blulno got a large
number of cases for removal and appolnt-
pcnt ready some weeks ago , Is because there
nave been urgent demands for immediate
Motion on ofllces located in the states and ter
ritories , which affect the local service and
Citizens of the United States. Everything
can not bq done In u day. The people who
O to the white house nnd the departments
frequently marvel that half that is done can
t > o accomplished. So tnuny demands are
jaiado for .the hearing of verbal statements ,
Jvhen papers are presented , it is a wonder
che latter are over examined as they must bo
before npjxjtntmont * are made.
11ECOQNIZINO THE COLOUKU MEN.
Secretary Noble to-day began tbo general
recognition which Is to bo given the colored
. by appointing its representative mnn
Kco. south to federal positions in iho north
trad west. He appointed James A. Spollnmn ,
bf Mississippi , to bo u special timber agent ,
* vlth his Hold in the west. Secretary Noble
- Itatod to' your correspondent that he intend-
to appoint n number of other colored mon
.0 positions under his department in tuo hind ,
[ nuian and pension serviceaa indicated some
; uuo ago. It is believed that it will be the
setter policy to appoint colored men to places
ocatcd In u section of the country where
they will receive the moral support of the
citizens around thorn mia where the elements
two most favorable , rather than to give them
places lu the south where the negro haters
fere situated. Moro than anything else tha
pocupunoy of federal offices in tbo south by
colored men bos bad a tendcnoy to create
political dissensions und brlD about political
inurdors. This has to a very largo extent
augmented the conditions which have made
north and a south In this country. Secro-
y Noble intimated that It the giving of
federal oftlces to colored men In the negro-
latlng sections of tbo south has really con
tributed materially to making a divided
lorth and a south bo will do nil he can to
ireak down the poliov , and at the same time
lo moro for the colored people us a race tuun
ill been done in the past.

In the basooall park yesterday attornoon ,
and watched the Omaha team ontortalti
about a thousand pcoplo by batting flics over
among the bouses around the park and
scoring up big , juicy runs.
The pilgrims had credentials as members
of the DCS Molnes ball team , but , with the
exception of Trnflloy's work behind the bat ,
did nothing worthy of mention. Mr. Pattoa
secured a run in the first Inning on a tlirco-
bagger nnd Pholnn 's ' sacrifice. In the sixth ,
two more runs were added to the Prohi
bitionist's sldo , nnd thcro they quit. The
Omaha olupgers scored in each of the nlno
innings , with a total of twenty. Every
member of the team found the leather ex

With sparkling eyes and teeth like pearls ,
Now high , now low ,

But it was not the Beauty alone who con

six-day cycle chase , but the witching Woods ,
Brown , Oakes , Lewis and Arinaindo , too ,
all were there , eager and earnest , striving
nerve and sinew and flbre , to bo the first to
cross tbo winning chalk lino.
Thu race has been nothing iiko the phe
nomenal success of the first event , with Its
startling crowds , its gay costumes , profusion
of flowers , music , mirth and unbridled en
thusiasm , but instead has occu but a series dt
scrioiiB contretemps , accidents and disap
pointments , all of which may oa commented
The ladles all rode well last night , and the
dcsiro on the part of each to gain un mlvnnt-
ugo was manifest in their eager looks and
Little Woods wns out lor victory , and she
sot and maintained a tremendous pace
throughout the evening' , and , try us hard us
they might , neither Beauty Baldwin nor Miss
Oaltes could gain un inch uuon her.
As the closing hour approached the bund
struck up a wild fanfare , nnd the fair
wheelers dashed nwny on their llnal spurt ,
Cheer swelled upon chror , and for a few
minutes the air was full of Jubilation , then
the pistol cracked , and the second six-days'

THE I3nn. ] Carter's aide of the noted di
vorce case closed to-day nnd the court took n
recess until Monday. A dudish young man
from Now York , who Bald his name Was
James Curtis Butler Andrews , n son-in-law
of C. II. Fargo , testified to having teen Mrs.
Carter dining In Now York nt the Fifth Av
enue , wltU E. 13. Sheldon nnd Joseph Ord ,
nnd another time nt Oolmontco's with Kyrlo
Belloxv. At the Fifth avoauo dinner ho
heard Mrs. Carter cnll n messenger and send
him with a note to Hollow for theater tick
ets , remarking as she did so : "Kyrlo never
coos back on mo. "
Bradford IJntton , who was night clerk of
the Magnolia house nt St. Augustine , Fin. ,
In 1835 , when Mrs. Carter wns there , told
how slio used to stay out Into at night. Quo
time she met the witness in the hall nnd
nslted him to call her at t > o'clock next morn
ing , and not to m.-.ko nny nolso , as she did
not wish the occupants of the next room
awakened. Her reason for such early rising
wns that she Intended going riding.
It was said to-day that sotno time during
next weak an attempt would bo made to
bring before the Jury A recital of a scouo
which will surpass , in dramatic interest ,
anything yet Introduced In the trial. It will
be a detailed account of the visits of Mrs.
Carter's husband's brother , Ernest , to her In
New York , his constant criticism of her con
duct , his apparent jealousy of every kind
'Word ' she spoke to nny other man. nnd llnally
tno lust scene In her room In Now York ,
whore ho proposed to her that she complete
his own brother's dishonor. It will bo
claimed that she drove him from her room
with indignation , and taat ho swore to her
that ho would be revenged on her. Then the
history of the trlil will bo reviewed with
reference to Ernest Carter's connection , and
an oflort'will be mada to shoxv that ho has
done everything in his power to accomplish
this revenge. They say it was ho
and not her husband , who first Imputed Im
proper actions to Mrs. Carter and demanded
an explanation , which she refused to glvo
him , but said she would give to Leslie. It
will bo shown , It is claimed , that Ernest , and
not Leslie Carter , hunted up the witnesses ,
arranged their testimony , secured deposi
tions and In fact had been much more aotlvo
in the case than the aggrieved husband.

Fifteen Cattle Shipped Into Buffalo in
New YOIIK , May 4. [ Special Telegram
to Tun Bun. ] A special from Buffalo says
that the friends of western dressed beef
have received a tremendous set back m this
city during the last.few days. On Tuesday
evening the Jacob Dold Packing company re-
ccivcd a consignment of twenty head of cattle
tle- from a shipping firm in Kansas City.
The car containing them passed through the
stock yards without inspection , and later in
the evening was received by the employes of
the company and switched oft on a private
truck. It chanced that a passerby happened
to pass close to the car and looked in at the
cattle. He saw a horrible spectacle. Fifteen
of the animals were suffering from that
loathsome disease known as lump
jaw , and their hoiuls were a mass
of festering cancers. The city cattle
inspector was informed and ho at once con-
dotnned the lot. Words utterly fall to do-
scrlbo tbo condition of the animals. A tumor
weighing over eleven pounds was cut from
ono of thorn. President Summers , of the
board of the board of health , and the city
physician and Clark were present at the
tno time , and the latter said that there was
enough poison in the cattle to kill every uor-
son in the st to , and that one drop of it In
serted beneath the skin would kill a person
in two'ity-four hours. Ho said that onto
dressed no one could detect the meat from
perfect beef , although it could not fail to
produce n most virulent form of blood pois

clamor is going up for more thorough in

A Torrlhlo Fourteen Months' Fight
On Fobrtmry 14 a notice wns posted
on 'chnugo says the Sun Francisco
Chronicle , thnt a reward of $100 would
bo paid by A. S. Murray for Informa
tion as to the wlioroabouta of the bark
Wandering Minstrel , which loft Ilono-
lulu on December 10 , 1887 , on a cruise
among the South Sen islands.
Some tlnio afterward Mr. Murray ,
who is the local agent of , the South
British Flro and Marino Insurance
company , was tolil by a sailor who had
boon at-Honolulu , but who came from
the Ptigot Sound , thnt ho had scon John
Cameron , who was mate of the Wander
ing Minstrel , In Tacoma. Detectives
were immediately sent there , but
further than to learn that Cameron ha
kept a saloon m Olymplnand from there
had gene to Tacoma , their visit was
fruitless and the fate of the Wandering
Minstrel remained a mystery until yoa-
torday , when Mr. Murray received ad
vices from Honolulu on the steamer
On April 6 there arrived at Honolulu
the British schooner Norma , Captutn C.
Johnson. The Norma had been among
the South sea islands fishing for sharks.
On March 17 the Norma arrived iit Mid
way island , where were found Captain
P. D. Walker of the bark Wandering
Minstrel nnd his crow. Thov wore in a
pitiable condition. The captain and his
wife and four children Had been on the
Island fourteen months , during which
iimo they had suffered most terribly
from the want of food , living on noth
ing but sea birds , their eggs , and what
fish they were able to catch. They
were living in n rudely constructed hut
nnd were in rags. Lack of food had
reduced them to skeletons and they
were so weak that it was March UO before -
fore the sick were able to bo moved on
board the schooner , which sailed at
once for Honolulu. On the voyage the
sailor Edward Davis Dawson , a native
of Mauritius , died of scurvy. The tie-
cuasccl was buried at soa.
The account of the captain of the
Wandering Minstrel Is one of terrible
sulTorlnc on an uninhabited island. In
his report ho says : "Wo loft Honolulu
on December 10,1887nrrivingnt French
Frigate shoals on the 18thand loft there
on December 5J7. Arrived at Midway
island and anchored in Welles harbor
on January 9 , 1888. On the island was
found C. Jorgensen , one of the ship
wrecked crow of the schooner General
Slcgol , who had been loft on the island
when the rest of the crow were saved.
The weather was fine , and a quantity of
fishing gear was landed so as to com
mence shark Hshing , and preparations
wore'nmdo to stay a while at the island.
The vessel had but a small cargo , but ,
besides a fine fishing outfit , had a steam
launch nnd several life-boats. The
month of January passed unevent
fully , but Fobruaay began with stormy
weather nnd heavy gales. On the 3d a
furious storm prevailed , the barome
ter falling to 29:80. : Both an
chor chains parted , and a third
anchor which was dropped wasdrnpged
toward the reef. Seeing that nothing
could be done to save the vessel , at 1:80
o'clock that afternoon the boats were
lowered and the Wandering Minstrel
was loft to her fate. She was then
striking heavily on , the coral-bound
saoro. A safe landing was made through
the breakers , and all made themselves
as comfortable as possible on shore.
The storm lasted a week. The bark
broke to pieces rapidly , and It was im
possible to save much of the provisions ,
although a few tins of meat and fruit
Things now began to look serions
There were fifteen people on the island ,
and food was daily becoming scantier ,
Jorgensen nnd the mat/oJohn Cameron ,
were together much of the time and
were continually quarreling with the
sailors and making themselves generally -
ally objectionable. Finally , on October
15,1888 , having induced the ChinubO
cook to go with them , they
stole the largest lifeboat and
all of the provisions in camp
and sot sail. After that matters became
worse , all of tuo provisions being gone.
The four children and the wife of Cap
tain Walker kept up nobly. About the
iirst of the present year two sailors died
from some disease , probably scurvy ,
Day after < lay passed monotonously.
The children finally gave in and we're
nil suffering from the scurvy , as was
Mrs. Walker , when the Norma picked
them up. One sailor was drowned dur
ing January while fishing , the bout
being capsized by a heavy sea , and ho
being too weak to swim. Three native
sailors who were on the island did not
suffer much , and showed but little what
they had pone through when they
arrived at Honolulu. "
The captain and his family are very
thankful at their deliverance , as they
would surely have starved had they re
mained undiscovered on the island
much longer. Captain Walker will re
main at the islands until his family are
once more in good health. One of his
children Is very ill and may not live.
Jorgcuson , who loft the island so basely ,
taking with him the provisions , was a
very dangerous man. Ho was suspected
of Killing twoof the crowof the General
Sigol , and at the time tried to got away
in a boat. When the crew were res
cued ho was left on the island. So un
bearable had Jorgensen become that
Captain Walker reports but for the in
terference on several occasions of iiis
wife ho surely would have shot him.
The boat in which the three were must
have boon picked up by some vessel , or
else the three reached Honolulu , and
without reporting the terrible predica
ment of the captain and crew sailed for
