BLOOD ON THE MOON Secretary Carlisle Sat Down Hard on DayeHilL 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 ecutive session. 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 fore he heard her siren- voice was fully $200,000." 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 Oakland." 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 act. 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 private terms. 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 killed. These reports are only partly con firmed by the Herald's correspondent in Rivera. "The people of this vicinity insist on having Chamberlain's Cough Remedy and do not want any other," says John V. Bishop, of Portland Mills, Indiana. That is . right. They know it to be su perior to . any other for colds, and as a preventive and cure for croup, and why should they not Insist upon having it. 50 cent bottles for sale by Blakeley A Houghton, druggists. Highest of all in Leavening Power. Latest U. S. Gov't Report. Seattle Mews. 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 Railway Company filed a complaint 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 way Company's affairs. This road was the road which broke the blockade and gave Seattle the first opportunity to be freed from the oppression of the North ern Pacific and its discrimination against Seattle. ' Afterwards -the Northern Pa cific absorbed this road and have been using it for their interests. It is be lieved that the court will appoint the receiver. There is a movement on foot to build a road from Seattle up Cedar river and penetrate the mining regions of Wash ington. In fact a corporation has been, organized for this purpose. Great activity is demonstrated in the building line, and it is expected that Seattle will have many fine structures put up this summer. When the court convened this morn ing Mrs. Boyd pleaded "not guilty" to the charge of murder in the first degree, ot which she was arraigned for killing her husband, Thomas Henderson Boyd, who was known in newspaper circles as the owner and manager of an Olympia journal.
