took charge of Rogers. The Mercer
authorities have been wired.

All Signs Point to General John C. New
as the Coming Man. .
New York, Feb. 9. A gentleman of
more than local prominence, who has
long been identified with public affairs
and is reputed to be thoroughly inform
ed regarding the inside workings of the
present administration, and who has just
returned from a visit to Washington,
said today :
Thursday afternoon last President Harrison
cabled General John C. New, consul-general' at
London, to come to Washington at once.
It will be' remembered that when
Harrison was making up his cabinet
New was anxious to be appointed secre
taay of the treasury, but friends urged
upon him-thatrhe could not then afford
to sacrifice the consul-generalship for
secretary of the treasury. The consul
generalship would certainly yield him
$25,000 annually, and besides, would
give him many legitimate apportunities
of increasing that sum. Unless New
decided the handsome income from the
consul-generalHhip, with its freedom
from care, is better than the secretary
ship with its perplexities (leaving out
the impulses of ambition), he will proba
bly be the next secretary Jot the treasury.
This is the settled opinion of those who
are best informed as to the president's
purpose. It is known New has studied
the whole British .question thoroughly
from an international standpoint. As
he is a man of great discretion and cau
tion, his views are of great importance.
Harrison fully realizes this, as Ue knows
he will want at his command the best,
fullest and most accurate sources of in
formation. This fact alone makes New
a possible candidate for the secretary of
It A Y HAMILTON ALIVE.
One of His Schoolmates Claims to Have
Received Letters From Him Recently.
Philadelphia, Feb. 8. A. C. Howard,
who was a playmate, ' schoolmate and
collegemate of Robert Ray Hamilton,
has given out a statement in which he
asserts that he has positive knowledge
that Hamilton is alive. He said :
"I have here in my pocket," said he,
"several letters from my old friend Ray
Hamilton. They were written after he
went west. The last one is dated San
Francisco, Friday, October 3, 1890. In
this letter he said he was going to Japan
and thence to Sydney, New South Wales.
Mr. Hamilton is alive and well. He is
not in Australia, however, and if matters
which are of vital importance to him
move along in the groove which he has
marked out, he will return to New York
within three months. His exact loca
tion I cannot make public. At least six
-)f-his friends know where he ia and are
in constant communication with him.
My late visit to New York was to arrange
some matters of business in which he is
interested. He was afraid that when
brought face to face with Eva Hamilton
in court, she would either make a start
ling revelation herself, or haveauestions
put to him when he shoufd take the
stand that would add further, to his own
disgrace and bring disgrace upon
Secretary Tracy Thinks of Repairing the
Washington, Feb. 9. Secretary Tracv
is seriously considering the prolilem of
wnetner or not it is worth while to re
pair the old wooden ships of the navy.
Many of them are quite rotten, and the
expense of repairing them will be con
siderable. At the same, time the old
wooden ships have many poiut in their
favor that the new ships do not possess.
Nearly all of them are full rigged and
the expenses incident to voyages are
much less than those of new ship's. The
Swarata, full-rigged made the trip from
from China by sail and did not have to
use coal on her way over. .The Pensa
cola, which has just left south Atlantic
waters for Chili, is proceeding by sail,
and when last heam from was making
as good time as if she was propelled by
steam. Both classes of vessels have
their advocates among naval officers, and
the pressuie brought to bear on Secre
tary Tracy to abandon all wooden vessels
for new ships propelled by steam is great.
He is still undecided as to any general
policy, but is probable that the Swarata,
about which the present hitch has
arisen, will be repaired, although to do
so will cost about $75,000. This will not
be done, however, until next June or
July. She is now at Mare island navv
The Co-operative Kitchen a Failure.
Chicago, Feb.- 8. Another colony of
Bellamyites is following in the wake of
the Evanston co-operative kitchen. The
South Evanston Co-operative Club was
organized last summer, .its membership
including eleven families or fifty persons.
Two cooks, several servants and a house
with the necessary accoutrements were
procured. The plan attempted was to
furnish the members the necessaries of
the stomach at the rate of $3 25 for adults
and $1 75 for children per week. Each
family was to eat at separate tables in
the dining-room. But the meals were
found to cost nearer $4 than $3 25 per
weeK at tne start, and aiterward still
more. This necessitated continual
assessments, and the co operators have
finally come to the conclusion that the
co-operative house-keeping "is no go,"
and have called a halt. Today the cooks
have served the final dishes and will be
off on a vacation until other positions
can be secured. Ths debts of the con
cern will be paid by a general assess
ment and the affairs of the colony wound
up at once.

A California Farmer and. His Wife Ruth
Napa, Cal., Feb. 10. Last night Cap
tain J. O. Greenwood while on the -way
to his house from the barn was met by
two well dressed strangers, who com
pelled him to throw up his hands. They
took him to the kitchen, bound him
hand and foot, and made him swallow
liquid which rendered him unconscious.
As his wife, who had driven to a
neighbors, came on the porch the men
seized her and dragged her inlo the
kitchen, where sheias.'i brjund, tand
drnggedTHer body was' found later on
the bed in the bed room near at hand.
It is presumed robbers took her there
and, finding she made resistance, killed
Mr. Greenwood, later returned to con
sciousness and after a great struggle
broke the cord from his legs, and made
his way to the bedroom to find his wife.
As he returned from the bedroom he
was again met by the robbers and they
then shot him twice, both bullets enter
ing his left cheek. He will probably
recover. He laid on the floor until this
morning when he crawled out into the
road where a passing neighbor gave the
alarm and assistance was called.
The house had been ransacked from
top to bottom, but Mr. Greenwood says
there was only $4 in the house: The
only clue to the murderers is a pair of
bloody shoes left behind.
The Idaho Legislature will Send Their
Boise, Idaho, Feb. 10. The legisla
ture at noon today balloted for U. S.
senator in separate session. In the
house Claggett received 19 votes. The
Duboise men' declined to vote, and
Jones, (Dem.) cast his ballot for a well
known character about town.
In the senate Claggett had nine and
the other nine were distributed among
as many more, senators amusing them
selves by voting for each other. In joint
session tomorrow, Claggett will have 28
v otes which gives nine for majority.
