LONDON , Mny 0. [ Now York Herald
Cnble Special to Tun Hr.B. ] American
visitors fairly rained upon London yesterday.
The City of Now York , City of Rome , nnd
tbo Irnnvo arrived ever , landing altogether
nonrly n thousand Americans , who cntno up
to London by every possible train. These.
or n majority of them , nt Icnsl , came to Lon
don , nnd whcro they nil found roofs to cover
them Is n mystery. The hotels were already
full to the sky parlor , nnd each turning
nway from the door almost an nvcrago of a
hundred aday. But presumably all found
Rome plnco in which to run up a bill for the
necessities or luxuries of life.
Of nil the arrivnls yesterday , the ono In
whom the greatest Interest will bo taken ,
perhaps , was the successor to Consul-Gen
era 1 Waller , the Hon. John C. Now , the
now appointee , together with his fnmlly ,
who reached London by special train on the
Northwestern railway , nt ! 110 : ; D. m.
The scene nt the Euston square station ,
when the special became due , was n lively
ono. As the train cnmo to a stand-still the
door was opened , and General New stepped
from the carrlago to the platform. After
him came his wlfa and daughter ; then Sena
tor Sherman emerged from the door , accom
panied by his wlfo and daughter. They
were welcomed by Consul General Waller
and Vice-Consul Moffat.
To the Herald reporter , who questioned
him , last evening , General Now said : "Wo
had n delightful trip across the water. Not
a single person on board was sea-sick , or if
thnro were , none of us heard of it. Woliavo
received n very cordial reception to London ,
'for which wo are exceedingly grateful
Governor Waller was very cordial In his
welcome , but that was to bo exceeded of
course , for his reputation In the United
States generally , Is that of u very genial
"In his own state , Connecticut , both re
publicans mm democrats like him. They re
gard him asn fair , able nnd most genial man.
The welcome ho has extended us here Is
greatly appreciated , I assure you. "
"Have you selected a place of residence in
London yet ? "
"No ; I have no idea whore wo shall settle
down. Wo have simply como to this hotel
to stop temporarily until wecan find n placo.
My family will not be quite so largo after u
few weeks , for the young ladles will go to
Pnris to school. "
"What do you think of the appointment of
Robert Lincoln as minister to England ! "
"I think It a good ono. I have no doubt
Ifcr that ho will make an excellent and capital
minister. The appointment is not entirely
ono of sentiment. Aside from being n son of
Abraham Lincoln , ho Is a good lawyer ; and ,
as secretary of war under President Garlleld
and President Arthur , ho gained an experi
ence in public affairs , nnd discharged the
duties of tils position most acceptably. Ho
is a fitting man to bo the representative of
the United States to any court. "
"Was the appointment of Whltolaw Reid
to Paris well received in America I"
"Yes ; it is well liked , and it Is unnecessary
to say that ho will fill the place admirably.
Every ono knows his ability. "
Senator-John Sherman , of Ohio , Is another
distinguished arrival and is staying at the
Hon. W. W. Thomas , United States min
ister to Norway and Sweden , arrived "nt
Liverpool , yesterday ; ho will go direct to
Stockholm. Ho has already filled the same
position for four years , having boon suc
ceeded by the man whom ho now succeeds.
Senator Donald Cameron , of Pennsylvania ,
also arrived at Liverpool und will do Eng

Almmlon the Theory oOItmtnr.
CIIICAOO. May 0. ( Special Telegram to
Tim Br.K. ] Tlio search for Dr. Cronln stll !
continues. Many of his friends nro forsak
ing the theory of murder. In fact , the
Conkllns nro now nbout tbo only ones who
nrc absolutely certain that the missing doc
tor was murdered by his enemies. The
police nro working on a number of clews ,
but have almost given up the theory of foul
play , and are turning their attention In other
directions. Captain Schnnck refuses to talk
on the subject or express any opinion ns to
the prob'ublo whereabouts of Cronln. From
his manner , however , it Is plain to bo seen
that 1m expects , when ho finds Cronlu , If ho
does , to find u ver ( ' lively corpao.
Nothing was found in the river to
day , but another brilliant mind has
evolved nn Idea which mnv bo
, ctcd on to-morrow. This Is to hnvo the
owly made graves In the cemetery north of
' 10 city examined for tracers of the missing
man.Dr. . Cronln Is not the only well known
rishman whoso absence from Chicago is
causing considerable comment. Mortimer
jcanlnn , an Intimate friend of the doctor ,
vent away Friday night , and rumor was
loating about this evening to the effect that
t would not bo at all surprising were It to
.urn out that they were together. Cronln's
Friend , John F. Scanlan , however , asserts
hat Mortimer has gone to Philadelphia on
trictly private business , nnd knows nothing
if the doctor's ' whereabouts. A prominent
rlshmnn who Is well acquainted withCronin
aid to-day :
"I am positive that ho Is unharmed , nnd
hat when ho turns up it will be found that
lie has not been in any way Injured. The
: alm attitude of Ills friends regarding his
absence , their disinclination to give informa
tion regarding him , and tholr refusing to tell
Captain Sclmack whom ttioy suspect of hav-
ng abducted htm , Is , to my mind , conclusive
uoof of those friends knowing moro
nbout him than they care to tell. In n few
days ho will eomo back , and will bo apt to
nioar considerable about his being abducted
: > y force , but such methods are obsolete , aud
' take very little stock in it. "
President Fitzgerald , of the Irish Na-
lonnl League , who is in the city on his way
east , said this evening that the assertion
Lhat. Cronln had documents derogatory to
Lo the league was "simply rot. " Ho did not
euro to talk fuithor nbout the subject. Mr.
Scanlan to-day received from R. McCahey ,
n prominent Irish-American of Philadelphia ,
n telegram telling him to push the Invcstiga-
'ion regardless of expense , and that all
'unds needed would bo guaranteed. Mr.
Scanlau said that before taking any further
action ho would await a definite report from
the police authorities. The Pinkerton detec
tive agency , which has had a number of op
eratives employed on the case , throw it up
to-dav. Mr. Pinkerton gives it ns his belief
that Dr. Cronln is alive and well , and Is on
his own business and for reasons best
known to himaslf.
To-night the assorted belief of Cronln's
rionds that ho had boon abducted and mur
dered received another set-back. Two hours
after the alleged abduction , the doctor wan
been down town , heading for the union
depot. A young lady , well acquainted with
him , saw him on a North side street car
coming down town , and n conductor of that
line recollects n man of Cronin's description ,
who was carrying a surgical case , and who
Inquired , when on the South side , the short
est wuy to the union depot.
FOREST MUUS IN MICHIGAN.
Two Towns DoHtroyctl and Blany lco-

CuiOAfio , Mny 9. A News special from
Marquette , Mich. , says that tcrriblo forest
llrcs are still raging in that section. All tlio
telegraph wires have been down for two
lays. Reports are now arriving of terrible
forest llrcs in the country recently hottled
by homesteaders. The flames started Tuns-
day morning , and swept across miles of
leuso forests until checked Uy rain in the
evening. Many homesteaders were burned
out. Great suffering Is reported among the
women' and children , who could hardly
breathe on account of suffocating smoke.
Many reached the railroad tracks and
others sought shelter in the swamps
whore , by burying themselves in mud and
lying face downward , they managed to sur
vive the heat and smoico. Bruco's Crossing
is destroyed. Matchwood Is also burned ,
and a tract many miles square is in ashes.
Relief parties are out to-day * to look after
those who are known to Imvo been in the
burned district. It Is feared many have per
ished. Great damage lias been caused at
Anthony , a lumbering town in the Homestead -
stead country. Vulcan lost a large ont-ino
house , several thousand cords of wood and
twenty houses , homes of miners. Norway
fought lire on all sides for eighteen hours
and was Just on the point of surrendering
when the rain came and saved the town.
Fears are entertained of loss of life in towns
remote from railroads.
Later dispatches irom Marquette say that
the forest fires In that region have been
grossly exaggerated. There was no loss of

Tlio depositions of a number of the lnstltu-

of those ofilclala of the last administration
who fulled to respect the precedent that liai

the government from time Immemorial
when n now administration comes In , and
declined to send In his resignation. Ho said
soon after the election that ho should not
voluntarily resign , nnd has repeated this
remark In n bombastic manner ns
often as ho has had an opportunity since.
Mr. Palmer's appointment was made out
yesterday und Mr. Bonodlct vas notified of
the fact , but not having the decency to lou
der his resignation , the president took the
trouble to address him n little note , notify
ing him that ho was summarily removed
from olllco. Mr. Palmer filed his
bond with the secretary of the in
terior to-day nnd will take charge
of the ofllco to-morrow. Ho made a tour of
the building this morning and was introduced
to the principal employes. This afternoon

It has been definitely determined that ex-

Lleutcnant-Governor Robertson , of Fort
Wayne , Ind. , shall ba members of the Utah
commission , mid tholr appointment is ex
pected within n few days. It Is not known
what will bo done In reference to the other
three commissioners. Colonel Robertson
was n Gresham man before the nominating
convention last Juno. Ho was elected lieu-
tonant-xovoruor of his state at n special elec
tion in ISSo , but a democratic court held that
ttu < constitution of the state did not provide
for the filling of a vacancy except at a regu
lar election , and ho was Itont out of his scat.
Ho was also forcibly kept out of the senate
chamber after u regular election in 1830 , on
the ground that a president pro tempore of
the senate regularly chosen nt u previous
session was possessed of the prerogatives of
the ofllco to the exclusion of any man elected
to 1111 un unoxplred toriu. Colonel Robert
son is about fifty-two years old , is a good
lawyer , and in personal appearance slightly
resembles Judge Greshaui.
Secretary Noble , to-day , received an Inter
esting report from the two inspectors of the
general land ofllco , who have been in Okla
homa since the territory was opened. They
gave a graphic description of the growth ot
the towns , tell about the barber shops , bath
houses , street sprinklers , lire engines and
opera houses opened , nnd say that Guthrie
has now a population of 6,000 mule citizens ,
leaving the female population to bo esti
mated. With regard to the troubles and
complaints unit have couio irom these
sources , they say :
"Public confidence has boon restored hereby
by the prompt action of the government.
Captain McArthur und Marshal Needles
have acted with great discrimination , und
too much praise can not bo given them.1'
The report further says that they visited
the land olllco at Kingfisher , nnd found the
business proceeding in a commendable man

It Is moro than a probability that the
nomination of ox-Governor and ex-Assistant ,
Secretary of the Treasury Hugn S. Thomp
son , of South Carolina , to bo a civil service
commissioner will not ho continued by the
senate. President Cleveland appointed him
to this position In February last , nnd the re
publicans , learning that Thompson was at
the head of the bulldozing element of his
state and the ballot box terrors of the south ,
refused to take act Ion on the nomination.

been made that the present Incumbents
will bo allowed to servo out their four years ,
to date from the thrib of tholr appointment. "
As many of the presidential appointments
were held up by the senate for a long time ,
some of them nearly two years , this Is a most

Is reported from Newton , Jasper county.
The victim Is an elderly woman , living alone ,
nnd possessed of considerable property.
Tuesday morning she called nt the bank
whcro sbo bad deposits , and requested the
president of the bank to call nt her house ,
during the day. Ho did so and was Informed
that stio wanted to draw $ -1,000 , and wanted
him to bring the money to the house , stating
that stio was going to make an investment.
When the banker learned that she was going
to keep the money In the house , ho strongly
remonstrated , since she was entirely nlono.
Finally she said she would see If n chock
would not do as well ns the currency.
Yesterday she returned , saying that she
must Imvo the money , und In largo bills , and
that It would bo safe , for stio would hide it.
As she grow more contldoutiul she dlvu Igcd
the fact that It was n woman who was going
to iniiko so much money for her , and that the
woman was an Egyptian. The banker be
came at once suspicious that some black art
was being practiced , und ho determined to
go to tho' bottom of the mystery. Telling
her that ho would bo down in fifteen min
utes , ho called the cashier nnd proceeded to
the house on the pretext of wauling to pur-

house , and had almost finished their tour
when , in the last room of the second floor ,

slammed the door and summoned the cash

to couio out. The Egyptian came
forth , a woman of extraordinary height ,
blue eyes and sharp features.
Sno protested her Innoccnso , and claimed to

Her plan of procedure seems to hnvo
been begun last full with a kind of hoodoo
influence. She had told the lady that
through the aid of spirit forces she could
find certain treasures hidden in the yard
about the place. Hut in order to find the
hidden gold , it would bo necessary to Imvo
n largo pile of money in the house to estab
lish sympathetic communication. Fitteon
hundred dollars was first named last full ,
but' later the Egyptian said it would take
$4,000 , and had finally convinced her victim.
When the banker went for an o nicer , the
Egyptian skipped out and down the railroad
track , but was overtaken und captured.
People In Newton recognired her as ono of
a band camped near thcro last fall , who
went around telling fortunes. The woman
was held for examination and tells
conflicting stories. but said that
her name was Mrs. Mary Brewer ,
and that her homo was In Nebraska. This
evening Mrs. Brewer was arraigned at Newton
ton on u charge of vagrancy and was fined
_ $30 nnd costs , which she promptly.paId.ShQ.
seemed very anxious to leave town , and took
the first train west , promising not to con\o \

ut Newton with what purported to bo u cer

party in DCS Molncs , and ho loft town with
her to-night. The people of Newton arc

President Van Horn , of the Cnuoi
dlanPacific , In answer to u question frouV
Senator Cullom us to what per ccntnco o
tratllc was taken from the United States- ,
said ho did not know the exact figures , bus
nsido from coal , the per centugo taken was <
very small. Ho then , in reply to u quostlori ,
detailed the history of the Canadian Pacitlo
road , and said that the government bad lit
many ways , financially mid by privileges )
aided the road. It has not made uny money ,
Jilt many of its bonds have been bought In
with the money made from the sale of lands
which the government originally gave the
Canadian Pauillc. The total amount ot
subsidy and aid given to the road by the government -
ornment amounts to a little over SC3,000,000/ / '
according to Van Horn's statement. The
transcontinental * trade from China , Japan
and the western part of the country over the
Canadian Pacific is constantly increasing. It
gets about 10 or 1'J per cout of nil the west *
ern and Paclllc trade.
' 'The impression is genorali" said Presi
dent Vim Horn , "that the relations of the
Canadian Pncillo road with the government
tire oxceediriglyMntlmoU' , but I assure you *
that tlio relations ara anything but .Intlmiito ,
and not as cordial or intimateas those bo *
twcen the Pennsylvania road and the gov
ernment at Washington. Then nearly nil
our rails and materials come from the United
States. Altogether wo have no advantage )
ever the American lines , as , although labor
is somewhat cheaper witli us , the greater
portion of our coal comes from Pennsylvania
und Ohio , anil therefore costs more than It
docs your roads. "
Van Horn was followed by President and
General Manager Newell , of the Lake Shorn
& Michigan Southern. He testified that hia
road suffered severely from the computl-
tlvo practices of the Canadian roads , and of
fered to furnish the committee with docu
mentary evidence of uulair dealings and
methods of the Grand Trunk railroad In par
tlcuhir , which , ho said , was one of the larg
est can icrs out of Chicago. Secretary Cul
lom accepted his offer.
President and ( jomiral Manager Lodynrd ,
of the Michigan Central , said his road was
losing business rapidly by reason of the fact
that the Canadian roads \voru practically
