BLOOD ON THE MOON
Secretary Carlisle Sat Down Hard on
NEW YORK WANTS EVERYTHING
Discussion Upon the Contested Seats
Begun in the Senate No Decision
Reached As Yet.
Kkw York, March 29. The Herald's
Washington special says : Senators Bill
and Murphy called on Secretary Carlisle
yesterday afternoon. Hill was the
spokesman, and came to the point at
once. He said :
"We want an office for this man,"
giving his name. "He is a good demo
cratic worker and deserves recognition."
"Is that all you have to say in his
favor?" asked the secretary.
"Is not that enough?" asked Senator
Hill, in a surprised tone.
"No, it is not," replied Carlisle
sharply. "There are already more ap
plicants from New York for places than
it is possible to fill. I have no room for
this man and cannot appoint him."
The attitude of the secretary was so
unexpected that Hill was evidently at a
loss for a reply. He looked at Murphy,
and Murphy looked at him. There was
a dead silence, and finally Hill turned
with a chilly "good day," and walked
out of the room followed by Murphy.
There is blood on the face of the moon.
The Contested Seat.
Washington, March 29. In the senate,
Hoar called up, as a question of priv
ilege, the resolution reported by him
from the committee on privileges and
elections, declaring Lee Mantle entitled
to be admitted to a seat as senator from
Montana. Harris suggested the senate
was not ready to act on the question, as
reports of the majority and minority
had only been delivered today. Hoar
said his reason for' calling up the subject
today was that some senators were
about to leave the city today and desired
to address the senate. The resolution
was taken up. Pugb, who joined in the
report of the majority, proceeded to ad
dress the senate in favor of this report.
At the conclusion of Fugh's remarks a
long discussion as to the admission of
Mantle began, but the matter went over
until tomorrow before a conclusion was
reached. The senate then went into ex
A Fair Siren.
Atlanta, Ga., March 29. Mrs. Ham
mond, the fair blonde whom Police Com
missioner English declares has $40,000
of the Gate City bank's stolen funds, is
in jail this morning, and will stay there
until the case is concluded. A gentle
man from the Magic city today told of
her wild career in that place. "Such a
vision of loveliness you never beheld,"
said he.' "She was my neighbor.-. She
was a communicant at St. Mary's fash
ionable' Episcopal church, and she was
just so good and sweet that the ladies
were impressed, and they were all get
ting ready to call, when some of us
found out from the boys about town
that she was not what she seemed.
There was a great stir when we had to
have her moved, but she went. Her
husband got a divorce, and she became
the pet of first one man and then an
other, wrecking one whose fortune be

Suicide of a Defaulter.
San Francisco, March 29. E. Ams
den, formerly cashier of the Continental
Insurance company, who disappeared
after a shortage of $1,000 in his accounts
had been discovered, committed suicide
last night. He was found in a lodging
house on Bush street this morning dead.
A rubber tube was attached to a gas jet
and one end in his mouth, and the gas
turned on. A letter, addressed to the
coroner or surgeon of the receiving hos
pital, read as follows:
"Cause of death, madness and despair.
Be noble enough to giye only these, the
true reasons, to the press and public.
Further particulars will cause only more
misery and unhappiness to my unde
serving friends and relatives."
E. R. Amsden.
"P. S. Means employed, opium."
Amsden was 42 years old, and lived in
A Msnl of Suicide.
San Jobs, Cal., March 29. Shortly
before 6 o'clock this morning, residents
in the vicinity of the new postoffice
building, which is in course of. construc
tion, were awakened by- a loud explo
sion. Later the headless body of a man,
apparently 60 years of age, was found in
the cellar of the structure. Parts of his
head were found scattered about, and it
was evident that he committed suicide
by setting off a dynamite cartridge in
his mouth. Nothing was found abont
the person of the. suicide tending to
identification. Only 10 cents was found
in one of the pockets, indicating poverty
as the probable cause of his dee pe rate
A Tumble In Wheat.
Chicago, March 29. There were lively
times on the board of trade shortly after
noon. In view of an evident corner in
May wheat here, which has held that
future far above a parity with other
markets for several weeks, and. has ren
dered shipments impossible, thereby
filling all the elevators in the city to
bursting, the board of directors at a
secret session last night decided that a
storage emergency exists. Extra emer
gency houses will now be created as ap
plications are made and the necessity
presents itself. ThiB fact was not
known until about noon. Meantime in
the early trading, with Kansas and the
whole west clear, according to the wea
ther map, and no prospects of rain, the
shorts were excited and pushed prices
up until the clique began realizing heav
ily. The early advance was aided by
the statements that the reports of Sec
retary Mohler, of Kansas, saying there
were good rains throughout that state,
were bogus. Private reports from that
state were bad. When the clique began
to sell, however, and the action of the
board became known, there was a rush
to buy, and the price went off in great
jumps, tumbling within a few minutes
from 82 to 75c ; but at the bottom
the shorts, who sold on the way down,
began to take' profits, and there was
quite a rapid recovery to 79, but later
the marketjweakened again, and closed
at 78c. The clique have been selling
two -or three days, and it is . supposed
got rid of over . three millions today.
Business was almost paralyzed for a
time. Rumors were current of large
private settlements by the clique. In
the excitement of the break much wheat
was thrown on the market on stop loss
orders. - At the same time that wheat
broke, provisions took a tumble. Lard
went off over f 1 a tierce ; pork, 26 cents
a barrel ; ribs, 15 cents a hundred.
John & Michael Cudaby, rich pork
dealers, are at the head of the bull
clique, with many other wealthy Chi
cago and New York men. The deal is
the most gigantic in the history of the
grain trade, and mighty accumulations
of capital were arrayed against each
other. It is said the clique controlled
11,000,000 bushels of contract wheat and
were ready to take as much more if
storage-room can be found for it. The
elevator proprietors are emptying lines
of corn, oats and barley into the holds
of vessels, and are chartering vessels for
the purpose elsewhere to make room for
wheat. A comparison with high prices
here today shows it was 18 cents lower
in St. Louis, 18 in Duluth, 17 in Min
neapolis, 12 in Toledo and 8 in New
York. The big shorts, Ed Partridge
and Arthur Orr, are said to have been
driven in and settled with the clique on
Fight In Brazil.
Valparaiso, March 29. Refugees who
have arrived here from Bage tell a story
of hard fighting between government
troops and the revolutionists under Gen
eral Tavarez,' who are besieging that
stronghold. The siege has been going
on since March 21 , but neither side has
gained an advantage. These refugees
say that Colonel Matta, commanding a
detachment of the national army sent
from Rio de Janeiro, surprised and
butchered 100 revolutionists. General
Sarava, who has command of the revo
lutionary troops in that section, attached
Colonel Matta. The revolutionists were
driven back after a hard fight, but Colo
nel Matta is reported to have been
These reports are only partly con

Seattle, March 28, 1893. Special to
Tub Chronicle. The people of this
city were , somewhat surprised . when
some of the creditors and stockholders
of the Seattle, Lake Shore and Eastern

against the Northern Pacific Railroad
Company and in the complaint set out
facts on which they ask for a receiver to
be appointed to take charge of the
Seattle, Lake Shore and Eastern Rail

the road which broke the blockade and
gave Seattle the first opportunity to be
freed from the oppression of the North
