Snociol to Tun HER. ] Miss Hallowoll , of
Chicago , Is In Purls arranging and selecting-
pictures tor the art gallery of the annual exposition -
position , which opens In Chicago next Sep
tember. It Is needless to say that Miss Hal-
lowoll's slay In Paris Is of great Importance
to American artists , and it may bo that our
prominent French and English artists may
ulso bo contributors this year to the best
picture market in the United State * .
I called upon Miss Hallowoll yesterday , at
the Hotel Dahlia ot 'D'Alblon , mid she said ,
when asked what she thought about this
year's salon :
"I miss very much several painters whom
1 consider our strongest American artists ;
Mr. Mclchors , for Instance , Is not exhibiting
this year , and his exhibition painting will bo
too late uUcr the close to send to America. I
have asked him to paint something specially
for our exhibition. I am sorry , too , that
Jules Stewart has nothing. Ills work has
always been most acceptable. "
"What have you found In the salon that
you like best from Ajnnrlcan artists.
' 'Henry Blsblng's 'Duns la Prnlrlo , ' a
painting I consider the best ot the 'American
artists ; and , next to that , I have selected
"Walter MncEvortt' 'Eh ! eh ! Ics outrcs allona
joucr. ' It Is also a Hollandalso subject and
portrays a character without making a carl-
caturo of It. " .
"Havo you selected others ! "
"Yes. I have one of Gcorgo Hitchcock's ,
Dana's ' ' Relnhart's Harrison's
, Brldgeuian's , , ,
Llacon's ' Charles Clifford '
, Knight's , Dyer's ,
Miss Koto and Miss Eunnr Greatorcx'B ,
Btoroy's ' , Howe's , and , In fact , all the best
American pictures. "
"How about French and English urtlstsl"
" \Vo have never asked for foreign palnt-
IngB yet , but I am looking about for some
now. Perhaps you know that foreign paint
ings can bo taken over for nn American ex
hibition for six mouths withont uaying duty ,
and If they arc Hold or retained longer than
that period onu must puy duty , or , if not ,
the painting can bo eturncd with
out any tax. The stockholders of the Chicago
cage exposition pay nil picture- expanses of
any that uro accepted , and the artist whoso
picture IB selected and sent lias no oxponnc
whatever. "
"And how are sales ? "
' I think that Chicago is really the greatest
picture market la the United States. Of all
the paintings that came from hero last year ,
with perhaps one or two exceptions , every
one waft sold and brought , a good price. The
artist pays no commissions , ana there arc no
Intermediate- agents between the artist and
the purchaser of the exposition committee.
I would , lilco very much to have several
French and English paintings , and I am sura
ofa ready sale for thoui.buttl have dona noth
ing about It as yet. Daman 13ouverat's 'lire-
tonnes au Parlor' Is uiy choice of the French
school. I have not yet chosen any English
paintings , but may in a few days. "

The Cook County (111. ( ) Innann Asylum
Shamefully Overcrowded. .
CHICAGO , May 13. The hearing of the appli
cation for the rclcnso of Dora Willard , an In
mate of tbo Cook county Insane asylum , was
begun In thu county court this morning.
Mrs. Shcdd , of the Women's Protective as
sociation , testified that the asylum was over
crowded ; that there was not enough scats
for the patients , who wcro compelled to sit
on the floor ; that the county was paying 0
cents per pound for hops' snouts , which
were being fed to the patients ; there was
mt'ch drunkenness In the institution , nnd
there had been some cuscs of scurvy. Dr.
Clcrnan the present superintendent , had Im
proved the condition of affairs.
Mrs. Dr. Hunt , of the asylum medical
taff , testified that there were 1,000 patients
n the institution , which Is calculated to ac
commodate GOO nt tha outside , and. the number
jf attendants wus much too limited. Evl-
lenco was Introduced to the effect that
ho patients were fed on pigs 'heads for nn
ontlro year , with potatoes for vegetables
inco n week. There was no service , nnd
he patients fought for the potatoes with the
csult that the weak got none , and that over
Uly of the inmates became afflicted with the
scurvy. Ono of the medical staff testified
hat In ono ward there are thirty-eight vlo-
cnt patients , with only nmo rooms , an over-
igo of four In each room. It was nbso-
utoly necessary to have only ono or two In
some of the rooms , so that live persons were
crowded into others. Thcso rooms are G } x
0 fo t In-slzo. The beds nro two and ono-
lalf feet wide , but Ir. many cases two
mtlents nro forced to sleep in them. Under
such circumstances , with Insufficient attend
ance , the patients would climb over the cots
and fight , nnd the attendant was frequently
called six or eight times In a slnglo night to
go to the patient ? , who were attempting to
commit murder or suicide. This state of nf-
aim was reported to the members of the
county board ogaln and again , but nothing
vas done to remedy itMuch other revolt-
ng testimony was brought in. The board of
county commissioners this afternoon passed
n resolution naming u committee of promi
nent eitUens to recommend a suitable person
a succeed the present superintendent , Dr.
Clcrnan , whoso management has been so se
verely commented on recently.
the American Copper Men Back
Attain From France.
NEW YOUK , May in. Many prominent
copper operators from this city nnd Boston
were on hand to day when the steamship
Scrvia arrived to learn the result of the
European conference between the American
mine representatives and the defunct French
syndicate people. Mr. Haggin , who is solo
owner of the Anaconda mine , said , with em-
ihasis , that his trip had been woductlvo of
no good. "Wo wcro unable to boino to any
igrcemect , " s'ald ho , "nnd have como back
to throw our metal on the Inarket for what
it will bring. " Ho would not talk further.
Colonel Livermore was moro communica
tive , and said the Frenchmen seemed ready
and willing to enter Into uny agreement to
irevont n panic. Ho gave nn outline of the
.orm offered by the Americans , who pro-
losed that the banks should take a certain
number of years In which to market their
copper ; the minus should reduce production
a certain per cent until the tanks' metal was
disposed of , and that there should ho a minl-
mnm pnco agreed upon. Representatives
of the HIo Tintio mine wanted the American
miners to agree" to restrict the export of
copper , but they wor'd ' not do so. The
Americans insisted upon equal terms , but
did not usk ar. immediate reply. They came
away without reaching uny definite con
clusion. When told what Haggln bad said
about throwing his metal upon the market ,
Livermore replied : "Wo may have all como
loiuo prepared to do it , but I don't ' think wo
will Just now. Settlement Is not a hopeless
question. "
A Colony From Devil's Imke All Heady
to Move.
PIEHHE , Dak. , May 18. [ Special Telegram -
gram to THE BEE. ] Nols Nelson , a man
from the Devil's Lake country , in North Da
kota , arrived in Pierre , to-day , and has gone
on to the Sioux reservation to look lip loca
tions for some GOO families from that region ,
whom , ho claims , have sent him hero for this
purpose , and ho lias the credentials to that
effect. He has made arrangements with the
Ferryboat company for reduced rates for
crossing the colony and claims they will
start Just as soon as the opening of the
reservation is reasonably assured.
From the facts that the crops In that coun
try have been blasted by frosts two seasons ,
it induces the people to seek new homes on
th6'Sioux reservation. Bishop Hare , of Sioux
Falls , arrived in tuo city , last night , fresh
from a visit to all the Indian agencies and
mission schools on the reservation , up the
Missouri river. Ho spoke very encouraglng-
ingly of tbo sentiment of the Sioux being
favorable to sicnlng the treaty , and regard-
lug the outlook as the very best , as ho had
taken pains to inquire Into the matter at each
point visited. His opinion carries great
weight , as ho Is known to bo Intimately in
the confidence of all the Sioux tribes.
Nn Ono Given PornilHSlou to Settle
on Sioux Imud.
CiuMiinui.AiK , Dak. , May 13. [ Special
Telegram to THE HER. ] The reports that are
bolng sent out by correspondents at different
times that settlers are moving on and taking
claims on the great Sioux reservation , by
permission Of the Interior department , Is
Indignantly received by Dakota peoplo.
Secretary Noble denies giving permission to
do so. Major W. W. Anderson , Indian
agent at the Crow Creek und Lower Brule
ugulK'ies , was In the city last night , and said
that ho would eject anyone from the reser
vation that wont on with the intention of
settling. People who have hud any deal
ings with the Indians surely know that
nothing works them up so against thu bill as
to have the settlers begin taking up land
before tha commissioners hud treated with
thotn. There nro no people moving on the
reservation nt this point , and It Is not be-
Iioved that they are at any other points. It
Is supposed to bo the work of some near
sighted boomers.

WASHINGTON , D. C. , May'l3. 1
There continues to bo strife over the qucs-
lon of extending the civil service law to em-
> race the census bureau. The proposition is
unpopular In all branches of the public ser
vice , except in the building where the civil
crvico commissioners are located. Score-
? oblo said to-day that ho did not know
vhcthortho census bureau would be in-
ludcd In the civil service or not , and that ho
vas naturally loath to sco that amount of
mtronago thrown away. Ho had not refer-
cd the question to the president , and did not
> olovo ! Superintendent Porter would do so.
Secretary Noble said ho Intended to go right
ihoad and make appointments for the census
mrcuu without any regard to the civil ser
vice law , unless ho was requested to stop.
lo believed that the appointments now
icing made were based upon the very best
irinclplo , that of fitness , and that there was
10 necessity for the civil service law inter
fering. The civil service commission an
nounced that It can supply all the positions
n the census bureau , as there are thousands
more eligible than there arc places.
General Bon Butler continues to wear his
var paint , despite the fact that Admiral
, 'orter has retired from the field of buttle.
The general says : "I have not commenced

didn't disturb mo in the least , I am used to
such things. I have been us badly abused as
any man In the country ; eloquent rascals
lave called mo everything they could think
of , except 'a damn reel , ' b it some one may
do that at any time. "
Public Printer Palmer learned to-day
what it Is to have control of 2,500 positions
and to have about ton thousand persons who
iVunt to fill them actively engaged
n seeking him. His immouso es-
-ablishment was thronged all morning
md afternoon by ofllco-scokcrs , and
its desk wus heaped up with applications in
written form , wnilo ho was dizzy listening
a verbal statements as to the qualities of
, ho applicants. Ho took formal and ub'so-
ute control this morning , nnd was intro
duced to the employes. Benedict bada him
good-byo , took a carriage and droVc away
lot to return , much to the gratification of
ho hundreds of employes and the people in
Washington generally. There are a number
of vacant positions in the ofQco and a lot
nero should bo made immediately. There
vill probably bo half n dozon'of the fifty or
seventy-fivo principal employes retained.
Many of them should DO dismissed at once ,
ns a vacancy would bo much bettor for the
lublio service than their presence. Mr.
? almor has not yet selected a chief clerk or
any of his assistants , but says ho will do so
very soon.
The announcement in an evening paper
that Governor Foraker , of Ohio , hft-1 bought

of $4,000 , sot the tongues of the gossips wag

they attend their meeting next year.
Again attention is directed by Secretary
Noble to the fact that intruders on the Sioux

are still unknown , nnd the mithorltlos arc as
much nt sea In the matter ns they were n
vcok ago. The polled had nothing but the
story told by Woodruff about the mysterious
runk , to work on , and their researches In
hat direction are , o far , very unsatisfac-
ory. They have followed every clue which
his story seemed to suggest , and are no
nearer the solution Of the problem now than
vhcn ho first recited tbo talo. That there is
much truth in what lid says the pollco
admit , as they have corroborated several of
ils statements , ' That their failure to locate
ho"body , which ho soys was in the trunk , or
find the men who ho says accompanied him ,
only serves to make the matter moro
mysterious. The story of Charles Long
hat ho saw Cronlu In Toronto
and talked with him , and then that ho niys-
oriously disappeared frnm that place , Is
characterized by 'tho pollco as very fishy.
. .oatr , they say , "got In his work" on the
Chicago papers nnd then telegraphed Sun-
lay nleht that Cronin had disappeared. The
convenient disappearance saved .Long from
ho embarrassing position ot not being nblo
to point out Cronln to Chicago detectives
should they visit Toronto. Captain Shaack
s still Inclined to connect Cronln with the
iVoodruff story , but admits that the clue is
a poor one.
Woodruff was brought before a Justice to
day and held to the criminal court in ? l,500
ball on the charge of horse stealing. A ro-
lorter asked him if ho would add nnytlnng-
to his story told Friday flight , nnd ho re
plied :
"No ; there Is plenty more to It , nnd I
could tell It nil , but It would do no good , nnd
. don't Intend to do it. I have already said
oo much. It will all V.omo out soon , and
then you will sco I've boon telling the
truth. "
Captain Schaack Is fully convinced that
.ho corpse supposed to bo connected with the
Cronln case , for which his men have been
dragging the Lincoln park pond , was burled
loncath the waters Of Lake Michigan.
Young Woodruff was to-day bound over to
: ho criminal court on the charg > . < of borso

strong sermon , last night , denunciatory of
, ho practice of Sunday 'base ball playing.
So warm did Mr , Loach "grow over his sub-
ect that ho said that 'tho ' ball playing on
Sunday was the cursa of/Chicago ; that those
who attended or participated in Sunday base

The Or. Kelley Shooting- .
MADISON , Neb. , May 18. [ Special Tele
gram to Tin : Bnc. ] The evidence In the case
of the State vs. Soullor and Born is all In ,
with the exception of one or two witnesses.
The defense will commence no mo time to
morrow morning. It is generally believed
that the defense will be an alibi. There was
lathing that was now in the evidence
wrought out by the stnto to-day , most of It
ending to corroborate the witnesses of the
shooting. A strong effort was made by the
defense , on cross-examination of some of the
state witnesses , to pl co before the Jury the
fact that Dr. Kelley had seduced a sister of
one of the defendants and caused her death
jy n surgical operation , nnd after her death ,
lad circulated the report that the dead girl
md been pregnant with a negro
! hld. ! Under the rulings of the court
iho evidence was excluded , but by contiuu-
) us questioning nnd offers of testimony the
.ho jury nnd audicnco seemed to have gath
ered full Information of the facts. It Is un
derstood ( that the state will rest without
putting Kelley on the stand as a witness and
nucli dissatisfaction exists by reason of this
fact , as it Is openly charged that the prose
cuting attorney desires to shield him from
the cross-examination to which ho would bo
iubcctodand.whlch ] would haven bearing on
ils own case which comes up hereafter. The
: aso will probably reach the Jury about
Wednesday , nnd the arguments and result
are looked forward to with great anxiety by

Stockholders Awake.
New YOUK , May 13. An injunction was
to-day issued by Justice Harnell , of the su-

Smith and Edward H. . Hell , stockholders In
the Oregon Hallway & Navigation company ,
restraining , until further 'hearing , the pro
posed issue of new stock by the Oregon
'Transcontinental company- and also restrain
ing any pledge ot wiy disposition by that
compauyof. its holdings of liaihvay & Navi-
patio , company shares. The plaintiffs
tiffs state the authorized capital1
stoctc of the Oregon Transcontinental is *
$50,000,000 , " of which only $40OJO,000 have
heretofore been issued. Friday lust the
board of directors , at a mooting in' Portland ,
putsed a resolution directing that the re
maining $10,000.000 bo issued at once and a
dividend of 0 pur cent guaranteed upon it ,
nnd that $112,000,000 of Oregon Uailway &
Navigation stock , hold by the Oroifou Trans
continental , should bo hypothecated to
secure the payment of the dividend. Seven
directors only , out of seventeen , were present
at the meeting. Five of them are employes
oGKho Northern Pacific railway , nnd they
voted for and passed u resolution ugainst , the
opposition of the other two. The plaintiffs
believe that the Oregon Transcontinental
has no right to give such preference to any
portion of the stocit. They further charge
that the resolution was passed under in
structions from Henry Villard , who desired
to place the stock where ho coulu control its
proxies and increase the amount of Northern
Pacific shares now hold by the Oregon Trans
continental , to enable him by that means to
control the next Northern Pacific election.

AVASinsoTo.v , May 13. The United Statot
supreme court , to-day , In nn opinion by Jus
tice Hradloy , awarded the executors of the
will of Myra Clark Galnos the sum of
tft)7,000 ) against the city of Now Orleans , for
the use of property sold by the city , but
recovered by Mrs. Galncs niter long litiga
tion. The Judgment of the lower court ,
awarding the executors $1,300,000 for the use
ot the unimproved property sold by the city ,
was not concurred iu.
This has probably been the most Iniercst-
intr , the hardest contested nnd tno most pro
longed case known to the Judicial history of
this country.
The first suit in the case was brought by
Mrs. Gnlnos , ( then the wile of General
Whitney ) In 1S3I , nnd since that time de
cision has followed decision In regard to It ,
rim first suit sought to recover what was
known us the Evarlsto Blanc tract , in Now
Orleans. Blanc bought the tract for about
Mr > 00 , from the executors of General Daniel
LJlark , a prominent citl/en of Now Orleans.
Hu sold it and some other hind to the
city of Now Orleans. The grounds
on which MM. dallies set up her
chums were that she was the child of Gen
eral Clark by n secret nuirrlngo between
Itiui and ZtilliUQ Carriers , mid that General
Clark had loft n later will than the one under
which the property was sold. This secret
marrmga formed the axis oil which the liti
gation revolved , and the case was fought
with bitterness by both sides. It was not
until a fuw years before the war that Mrs.
Galncs was declared to bo the legitimate
child as well as the lawful heir of General
Clark. E on then the city of Now Orleans
did not surrender , nnd tiflor the war
Mrs. Games was compelled to brine
suit for damages. In ibSl the circuit
court of the United States for the Louisiana
district gave a judgment in her favor for
M.i&'M'iflT , and it is on an nppcnl from this
udgmcnt that the case to-day was decided ,

exhausts all the resources of the law , nnd la
