In this olty Is authority for the stale
ment that Mr. Clark's withdrawal
meins the absorption of the New
Havan rood by the Vanderbllt system
and that developments In the direct

this beyond a doubt.

Threaten to Strike on Work of Glen
ogle If Better Wages are not
Paid and Shorter Hours.
SAN FRANCISCO. September 18.
There are prospects of difficulties
ahead for the transport service. A
threatened strike of the painters Is one
source of trouble for the government
and It Is mre than possible that the
boiler makers to be employed on the
repair work of the steamer Glenogle
will refuse to go to work on the trans
port tomorrow. The painters' onion
has Intimated that a demand would be
J made on the government that all
i painters employed- on transports be
paid $3 a day and that eight hours
I constitute a day's work. In addition
to thin Is a demand that no man who
j Is not qualified to mix paint be em
j ployed. There is likely to be a split
, on all demands.
i Th" !Mvrnment takes the stand that
an man wno can pan should be have
all OI)portunlty. it is said on the docks
,hat ghould ,nere a gtrlke on th(1
head that the government might be
made to have soldiers do the painting.
The Glenogle is to be taken ln hand to
morrow and her boilers are to be over
hauled and so great Is the demand for
her that the work will have to be cr
rld on night and day. The boiler
makers have demanded ten hours pay
for eight hours work for the given rea
son that the work Is dirty and much
more complicated than that . In the
shop. "For night work which eonstl
tutes eleven .hours ln duration, they
demand twenty-six hours pay. There
will be a hitch on this.
On the transport Centennial a slm
liar demand was made and the boiler
makers carried their point.

event of tha royalist conspiracy was
reached February 23, when M. de
Roukde made his notorious attempt
on Palace de la Natlonale to Induce a
brigade of Infantry to march on the
Elyssee palace. Everything, It seems,
was prepared to carry out the royalist
plan that day, but M. de Roulede's
failure spoiled all and the Duke of
Orleans was awaiting at Brussels to
signal to come to Paris, received in
stead a telegram from M. Buffet say
ing: "Useless to come. Will send you
further news tomorrow.'.'
NASHVILLE NOT REQUIRED

Navy Department Will Not Dispatch
the Detroit Unitl Requested by
NEW YORK, Sept. 18.-A special
to the Herald from Washington says:
Until a report is made on the mat
ter of Commander Hemphill of the De
troit, showing th need of another
ship, the state department will not
ask the navy department to order th'e
Nashville to Venezuela waters. It is
said by naval officers that the Detroit
will surely arrive at La Guayara by
tomorrow or Tuesday.
Th dispatch announcing that the In
surrectionary forces had reached Mar
acay has for the first time caused ad
mlnlstrattlon officials to doubt the
ability of the Venezuelan government
to suppress the Insurrection. Maracay
Is near Valencia, and on the road con
necting that city with Caracas. The
capital has no defenses and It Is
thought that Castro Is moving toward
that point with a view of Investing It
and proclaiming the revolutionary
party tno government.
Senor Tulldo, the Venezuelan charge
a anairs, said: '
I am unable to give any reason for
the return Of President Anitrala n
Caracas, for I am without official In
urination concerning the progress of
the revolution. I am confident, how
ever, that he participated In any bat
tles that may have occurred with his
usual bravery, Judgment and skill and
that bis return to Caracas Is for the
purpose of taking fresh measures for
suppressing the Insurrection."

TO PURCHASE THE LOCKS.
Meeting of Board of Engineers
Portland for That Purpose.
PORTLAND, Sept. 18. The board of
United States engineers, which met
toduy to Inquire Into the proposal for
the United States to condemn and
purchase the Oregon City locks, con
sisted of Major Heuer, San Francisco,
captains Langft and Hart, Port
land. Henry B. Thellsen, secretary of the
Salem chamber of commerce, told the
board that the abolition toll of 50
cents per ton on freight shipped
through the locks would affect every
year Willamette valley shipments, ag
gregating 500,106 tons. As the freight
rate is 50 cents a ton, the abolition
of the toll would result ln a saving
of about $230,000 a year to the produc
ers and shippers Interest.
No protest was made against the
purchase of the locks. The hoard
will forward Its report to Washing
