The administration is dealing with the
Geary antl-Ciiinese law in its nsnal
wibbly-wohbly style. It started ont
with a flourish of trumpets a few days
ngo by announcing that the law was to
be enforced. When the new Chinese
minister called at the department of
state to file the formal protest of his gov
ernment against enforcing the law and
to put in a few words himself in the
same line, he was informed by Secretary
Gresham that the operation of the law
would be suspended until congress took
some action relating thereto. Two bills
have been Introduced in the bouse, both
modifying the law, and one of thorn is
said by souie people to have the appro
bation of the administration, although
others aay that Representative Mc
Creary, of Kentucky, chairman of the
house committee on foreign affairs, is at
work npon a new Chinese bill which is
to be backed by the administration.
ery naturally these things are a little
confusing. Your correspondent sought
enlightenment from Representative
Geary, of California, who, acting with
the other senators and representatives
from the Pacific coast, is credited with
having secured the positive promise, a
few days ago, that the law bearing his
name should be enforced. Mr. Geary
appeared to be very much disgusted, and
when asked what was going to be done,
said : "I don't know, and nobody else
seems to; when I go to one department
I am told one thing, and when I reach
the nest one the story is radically different."
Representative Grosvenor, of Ohio,
has introduced a bill providing for an
appropriation of $10,000 for a national
dedication of the Chlckamauga and
Chattanooga National Park, which em
braces the ground upon which one of
the most memorable battles of the war
was fought. The dedicatory ceremonies
are to be held on the 17th and 18th of
October, 1804, and it is proposed to in
vite the survivors of both armies to join

bill. The birth of his baby and the
guod condition of mother and daughter
having relieved his mind of family cares,
he will now devote his attention to the
senate. He started in by sending for
Senator Voorhees and giving him a rak
ing down because the bill had not been
passed, this being the date that Voor
hees had set as the outside limit for the
passage of the bill. The bill has not
passed, and what is more, there is no
immediate prospect of its being passed.
It is now stated that the great test of
endurance between the friends and op
ponents of the bill is to begin next week.
The silver men still express confidence
of their ability to prevent a vote, and
their opponents are not so confident of
winning as they were.
A REIGN OF TERROR

STATE TROOPS MAY BE CALLED OUT
A San Francisco Doctor Thought to
Have Murdered Addie Gilmour.
Nxw Oki.eavh, Sept. 20. Leading col
ored men at a secret meeting appointed
a committee to ask the governor for
troops for protection against the reign of
terror in Jefferson parish, in the out
skirts of the city. A mass meeting of
colored citizens of the state is called for
Monday. There are indications of seri
ous trouble. Jefferson parish has been
declared under martial law by the resi
dents. The sheriff, judges, senators and
representatives are the leaders of the
regulators. It is impossible to learn
whether the murderer of Julian was
captured or burned at the stake. It is
believed the state troops will be called
out today. Many white women and
children have come to the city for refuge.
Bloodhounds from the penitentiary w ere
let loose this morning in the swamp to
track the murderer. On the exact spot
where Judge Estopinal fell an iron stake
has been driven into the ground, to
which the'murderer will be tied when
caught. Besinocs pine fagots surround
it, and branding irons are ready with

San Francisco, Sept. 21. The police
authorities claim to have evidence
euough to insure the conviction of Dr.
West for the murder of Addie Gilmour.
One of the strong features will be the
admission that he made to her father.
The deceased girl's parent reside in
Portland, Or. The first intimation they
bad was received on the overland train
in their recent trip from there to this
city. All attempt to interview Dr.
West this morning failed.
Annie Staley, Dr. Weet'a mistress,
wa arrested today, charged with being
an accessory to the murder of Addie
Gilmour. The police say the Stnley
woman saw West perform an operation
on Miss Gilmour, and, after the girl's
death, assisted in cutting up the body.
The funeral of Miss Gilmour will not
take place today as was proposed, the
coroner's jury not being satisfied witii
the identification of the head. It will
probably not take place till Saturday.

It Look Like Murder.
Sak Fbancihco, Sept. 20. The police
are looking for Dr. Eugene F. West,
who they think is responsible for the
death of Miss Addie Gilmour, the young
woman whose head wa found floating
in the bay. The police have a theory
that Dr. West performed a criminal
operation on the young w oman which
resulted in her death, and that in order
to conceal the evidence of hi crime he
cut tlie body up and threw it into the
bay. Until yesterday West had an
office on Turk street in this city, but he
disappeared yesterday afternoon when
the fact was published that the head
had been identified.

IT WAS .SMALL POX
The Blander of a Smart Medical In

ELEVEN NEW CASES REPORTED
Rio in a State of Siege The Gilmour
Murder Mystery Substitute for
the Exclusion Bill.
New Yobk, Sept. 21. Eleven new
cases of small -pox were reported to the
health officerjrom various part of the
city yesterday. A blunder that amounts
almost to crime has been committed in
clinic, and by it the seed has been sown
that may yet bear a disastrous crop.
The list of today' victims ia headed by
two young doctors. It wa their com
ing down with the disease in one day,
within a few hour of each other, that
exposed the blunder. The Vanderbilt
clinic, in West Fifty-ninth street, was
the scene of it. September 4th. James
McGowan, a laborer, went to the dis
pensary and asked to be examined.
Suspicious blotches colored the skin.
An expert in skin diseases, attached to
the clinic, saw him aud concluded that
he had before him a fine case of chicken
pox. He did not make it hi business
to find out that the house from which
McGowan came had been the scene of
persistent case of small-pox, with
which the health officer are atruggling
yet. He took the man in before the
clinic of young doctors and paraded him
as a typical case of chicken-pox. The
doctor were, interested. They looked
at the blotcbea on the man' skin, and
felt of them, listened to the expert' ex
position of the difference between the
shot-like feeling of small-pox poetules
under the skin, and the more solid touch
of the harmless chicken-pox. It was
very instructive, and altogether a rare
chance. There were 20 to 30 doctors,
and they all took their turn at the fine
exhibit. Among them were Drs. Rich
ard and Norri. Today those two are
ying ill with the small-pox. That is
what the exhibit turned out to be when
got into the hands of the health
officers. How many more of the young
doctors will follow these, there is no tell

Furloua Bombardment Ia Hourly Ka
London, Sept. 21. Private advices
from Rio Janeiro say a furious bom
bardment is expected hourly.
The only reason tho bombardment
has not commenced is that yesterday
negotiationa between the rebel and the
government were undertaken at the in
stance of foreign power and foreign
warships who wished to rave the city
from destruction. It is not believed
they will amount to anything; in fact,
it is believed the government is merely
prolonging them to allow the non-combatant
to get away and the merchants
to save goods.
The statement of yesterday are con?
firmed from several sources. An at
tempt of the Brazilian minister to be
little the rebellion is not accepted with
any credence in London. The people of
Rio admit the rebellion has progressed
to such an extent that it is better to let
the city fall into the hand of the insur
gent than to be shelled. The rebel at
Rio are in communication with the in
surgents in the south, and all are acting
in unison. After success at Santo they
propose to attack Porte Allegre and Rio
Grande do Sul. In fact, tlie insurgent
vessels, it is said, have already started
on that errand. There is no doubt the
rebels are meeting with success. In
fact, a report that they have occupied
Rio is fn circulation here this morning.

be favorably reported.
