It was evident from his manner
that the now mayor is getting all the
onjoymont out of the work that ad
ministration building offers to an un
hampered mind. As he puts it, ho
"is just playing at being mayor."
It has been suggested that the list
as originally contemplated contained
many of the members of the former
Phelan board and some changes may
result, but It is tho intention of the
mayor to look In tho main to three
sources for his available timber to
tho Phelan board, to tho men who
won their spurs in tho recent relief
work, and, thirdly, to representatives
of tho labor unions.
"I have been busy tddoy going
over some claims that have been pre
sented to mo for my signature, and
after referring to tho charter I find
I may have to reject somo of them,"
Mayor Taylor said. As ho spoke he
held In his hand the vellum bound
autograph copy of the charter, on
one of tho blank pages of which are
tho signatures of tho fifteen members
of tho board of freeholders which
framed the organic law of the city.
Dr. Taylor himself having written
nearly every section.
To another attempt at a question
about the personnel of tho new board
tho mayor raised his hand with the
vellum-bound copy of the charter
in a deprecating gesture, and Repeat
ed his request not to be asked any
questions until his now board was

if ?Mr. Phelan is to be one f of the

vTho district attorney's ofilco' is jiot'
alarmed at tho rumor that somo of
its contract wards are contemplating
a refusal to resign when Dr. Taylor
is "ready with his appointments, and
it Is asserted that whatever the terms
of their contracts, tho de facto su
pervisors will bo obedient to the
wishes of tho district attorney.
"Wo shall bring no proceedings to
prohibit Dr. Taylor from acting as
mayor," Frank Drew, of Schmitz'
counsel, said yesterday, "but we
think it will be necessary for him
to mandamus tho treasurer before
ho will pay any claims without the
slgnaturo of Schmitz." The conten
tlon of tho lawyers of Schmitz Is that
tho section of the charter which pro
vides forf tho removal of an official
convicted of a felony Is not self-
operative, and they are planning to
make what fight they have left when
this proceeding is Instituted.
.The unusual spectacle of a chief
executive of a city, who dwells In the
rarifled atmosphere of principles
tinged with an amiable Idealism, con
tinues to excite the wondorment of
the practical politicians and district
leader. A conversation overheard in
a saloon yesterday illustrates tho

San Francisco, July 24. The
Union Steamship Company of New

heavily subsidized by ttie Austra

Francisco. These boats will be
fitted with Parsons English turbines
and will have a speed of twenty

Ever since the discontinuance of tho
Oceanic ' Steamship C6mpany's ser
vice great dissatisfaction has been
folt in Australia at the lack of
proper communication with this city.
Tho Australian state governments
and leading commercial men are far
from content with the Vancouver
service alone to this coast, and great
efforts have been made to bring tho
various Australian states into line
in support of tho projected new pro
ject. DIsagreomnts between the states
as to tho terminal port had been one
leading factor In preventing arrange
ments being made. Tho stringent
requirements as to wages of seamen,
accommodation and speed in order
to secure tho government's subsidies
also stood in the way of establishing
the new service. By the British

Australia early yesterday morning,

of the dlfllfflcultios have been settled,

San Francisco, July 24. Contrary
to expectations, the prosecution did
not finish today its case against

SETTLERS LOSE HOLDINGS
ADVERSE FINAL DECISION IS
GIVEN BY V. S.
Northern Pacific Railroad Given
Lands Which People Have
Moscow, Idaho, July 24. A verv
important final decision, adverse to
Idaho settlers, has just been ren
dered by Assistant Secretary Wood
ruff of tho Interior department,
Washington, D. C. This is in the
long-drawn-out case of the state of
Idaho vs. Steve Thorp te al, and
affects over 150 settlers in township
44, ranges 2 and 3 east, and who
settled on these lands after July 5,
1901. A man in touch with this case
saya that tho loss to each one of
these settlers will reach on an aver
age $1000, or a grand total of $150,
000, besides tho lands.
Thb is th ecase in which the state
of Idaho dellnqulshed valuable school
sections in the Coeur d'Aleno Indian
reservation in order to use them as
a base with which to attack the set
tlers. That there Is intense feeling
throughout this section of Idaho
against the state officials implicated
in this deal Is drawing it mildly.
This case was part of the strenu
ous contest in which the Northern
Pacific railroad was a third party,
and which, as a result of this decis
ion and others of the same nature,
has trained a crnnd nnrt: nf tlioco
T. W. Bartley, Moscow, attorney
for the settlers, said:
"I am sorry that the government
of these United States and that of
the state of Idaho are In the business
of taking homes from actual settlers
and giving them td the railroads. It
Is certainly a sad commentary."
The decision will work a great
hardship on many of these settlers,
most of whom have held their claims
for six years, experiencing the hard
ships incident to tho life of a home
steader, spending their time and
money, and In several cases going
into debt. In the case of those well
advanced in years and In very mod

PISTOL FOR ANDY CARNEGIE

Simple Country Merchant Inno
cently Makes Compact With
London, July 24. An audacious
attempt to coerce Andrew Carnegie
out of the price of a free library has
been frustrated by the Scotland
Yard police. A corn merchant of
Wurtzbhrg, Bavaria, arrived in Lon
don some week? ago for-tho purpose
of asking Carnegie personally for
$2,500 for a library for that town.
He divulged his intention to a com
patriot whom' ho mot casually, and
the man said he knew a way to
make Carnegie "give up." The
merchant did 'not 'know that tho
man was a- notorious continental
crook, and agreed that they go to
Sklbo Castlo together.
Meanwhile another acquaintance
of the merchant, discovering tho
character of the man, informed tho
Scotland Yard authorities by letter,
and thoy Immediately dispatched
two detectives to Sklbo, and also
telegraphed Carnegie to receive no
strangers. In due time two visitors
presented themsolves and Carnegie
refused them audience.
When tho detectives arrived tho
crook decamped. It Is known that
ho carried a revolver, and it is sup
posed that he intended to terrify
Carnegio into handing over the
money. It is suspected that ho in
tended, after tho merchant got tho
money, to rob him on tho return
that the merchant acted innocently

Boise, July 21. Tro career of
Frank Steunenberg, the murdered
governor of Idaho, was discussed at
length by Clarence Darrow this
evening In the course of his plea In
behalf of William D. Haywood. Jus
tifying articles published in the Min
ers' Magazine, tho official organ of,
the Western Federation of Miners,
the Chicago lawyer said the action
of Steunenberg in asking for United
States troops to quell a riot In tho
Coeur d'Alenes and tho establish
ment of martial law in 1899 was un
justifiable and had properly stirred
up an immense feeling In labor cir
cles against tho governor.
Darrow's argument, unfinished to
night, devoloped into an appeal for
labor as against capital and In a de
nunciation of all opposedto unions.
He held the audience startled and
open-mouthed as one after another
these sentiments poured from his
mouth. His attack upon Orchard
was expected, and In this respect ho
fulfilled and surpassed tho limit of
sensation. Three hours were given
to Orchard, and it was only when
vituperation, physical force and
words were spent that Darrow
turned upon J. H. Hawley, leading
counsel, for the state, and tho Pin
kerton detectives, for something on
which to pour tho lesser volume of
The stato of Idaho camo In for a
largo part of Darrow's denunciation
for the part it has played in tho
prosecution. Culture, education
and wealth each In turn wero de
scribed as constituting a combina
tion against which workingmen, un
educated and poor, must ever bo op
posed. Darrow sneered at universi
ties as purveyors of culture
"And what Is a cultured man?"
ho cried, "but a cruel tyrant al
ways." Reaching tho climax In his de
nunciation, of his sympathy for
the working class and hatred for tho
rich, ho assailed the constitution of
this country and cried: "Tho consti
tution, It is hero only to destroy laws
made for the benefit of the poor."
Darrows defenso of labor unions
and of union men was passionate
and his eulogy of tho Western Fed
eration eloquent. Lovingly ho
touched on tho beauty of self sacri
fice found In tho "strugglo for hu
manity where only tho workingmen
is found," and then, with bitterest
sarcasm, his voice pitched to its
highest noto and arms upralsod, ho
heaped abuse upon tho selfish rich
and upon the administration of tho
stato of Idaho.
