DISOI LIGHT TOWER
he Wizard's Disjla? in Hie Electricity
WILL BE A ' BLAZE OF GLORY
The Tower Will be Eighty-Two Feet
High and Have 18,000 Lights
Strang on It
Chicago, March 30. Thomas A. Edi
son has kept very quiet about his plans
for a show in the electricity building.
His silence, in the face of persistent
queries, has been so profound that some
one started a much-believed rumor that
the great electrician would make very
little display. Part of the space marked
Edison" on the blue prints of the build
ing is a circle in the exact center of the
main floor, where the great display is
supposed to culminate. Today a group
of carpenters and scaffold-builders walk
ed into the building, started in on a pile
of lumber near the Edison circle and
proceeded to occupy all the room inside
the round white ring the surveyors had
marked out. The lumber took the
shape of a church spire and climbed well
up toward the roof, and the curious be
gan to ask what form it would finally
assume. One of these inquisitors saunt
ered up to the office of the General
Electric Company and asked Lieutenant
Spencer, who knows all about the world's
fair end of the company's business,
what Mr. Edison washavingconstructed.
"That," responded the lieutenant, "is
the Edison Tower of Light he spells it
with capitals, and it will be an amaz
ingly beautiful thing. The tower is 34
feet in diameter, 82 feet high and will
have 18,000 lights strung on it. A blaze
of glory ! It's a regular burst of con
densed sunlight. When the man from
the prairies puts his head inside the
door at night and sees that tower he'll
think the whole show is afire."
A Veteran Fireman Dead.
San Francisco, . March 30. David
Scannell, for many years chief of the San
Francisco fire department, died suddenly
this morning, aged 73 years, lie was
sitting in a chair in the engine-house on
Bush street at 9 o'clock, reading a paper,
Suddenly his head dropped and he was
dead. His death was due to kidney and
liver troubles, from which he had been
ailing some time.
Scannell has always been foremost at
a fire and has had many narrow escapes
from death. He received many injuries
during his career as a fireman, but
always managed to pull through. Al
though sick for weeks, he remained at
work and was on duty when the final
summons came. The fire bells of the
city tolled all morning in his honor. .
Naval Officer to Wed a Chinese Lady.
San Francisco, March 30. Com
mander Whiting, of the United States
steamer Alliance, frankly says that his
engagement to Miss Etta Ah Fong, the
beautiful and accomplished daughter of
a wealtbv Chinese merchant of Hon
olulu, is a fact. As to when the wed
ding is to take place, the prospective
bridegroom cannot eay. Naval officers
must get married when they can. The
Alliance is now being fitted up for a
vear. which probablv means that she
will spend the summer in Behring sea,
next winter in the south, and then go
out of commission. Whiting is 50 years
of age, while his bride-elect is 19.

Members of Parliament Frightened.
Ottawa, Ontario, March 30. A sen
sation was caused here today when it I
was reported about the house of com
mons that a fashionable resort had been
raided last night, and that a number of
members of parliament would be called
as witnesses to prove the character of
the house. In the court yesterday
morning the chief of police said that the
establishment was supported by mem
bers of f arliament, and the magistrate
advised him to summon them to give
evidence. A conviction of the keeper
of. the house was secured, however, with
out this testimony. The chief of police
says that the legislators implicated only
escaped a summons by one of the in
mates, a married woman, promising to
enter the Good Shepherd's home.
A Clever Medical Fraud.
-Sacramento, March 30. The police
are looking for a clever fraud who styles
himself Dr. Craner. He arrived in this
city about a week ago and learned the
addresses of a number of sufferers from
rheumatism. He made the rounds and
represented that he would cure each of
them for $10, and in case his remedy
failed he would not accept a cent.
After ingratiating himself into the
confidence of hia victims, he demanded
$1, which he claims is to prepay express
charges on the medicine. A few days
later the victim receives a bottle which
contains a liquid resembling muddy
water, with instructions to take one
tablespoonful three times a day. The
'doctor" then visits his victim and en
deavors to make him believe that he is
cured, except that it is necessary for him
to remain in bed for a short time to en
able the remedy to "eradicate all symp
toms of the dreaded complaint."
This morning ex-Chief of Police Dill-
man received a letter irom uonstaDie
Newby, of Dixon, warning him to look
out for Craner. He writes that he has
been looking for the fraud, whom-he de
scribes as being about five feet eight
inches in height, wearing a dark coat,
with a low-cut Vest. He has small side
whiskers and a goatee. The letter con
cludes: "I understand he has a testi'
monial purporting to come from Mrs
S. G. Little, a banker's wife, to the
effect that he has cured her and received
$800. This is false, and the testi mo
nial is a base forgery."
The police claim to have the names of
several who have been "victimized by
Craner, and a strong effort will be made
to have him sent to jail.
World's Fair Workmen Slay Strike
Chicago, March 30. Many of the
contractors at the world'e fair grounds
are looking forward with a great deal of
uneasiness to next Monday, April 3d.
An edict has gone out among the. labor
organizations that after that day only
union workmen will be employed on
the world's fair jobs, and if contractors
do not pay heed to this order there will
follow a etrike. , It refers more particu
larly to 10 carpenters. Their union here
is weak, compared with the bricklayers'
and some others, and there being but 30
days left in which to finish the hundreds
of exhibit pavilions and concessionary
stands and not nearly enough carpenters
to supply the demand, they think it is
a good chance to strengthen their union.
In case of a strike many buildings can
not be finished, and about the -only
thine left for the contractors to do ia to
get their men into the union.
Worth Thousands and Begging;.
St. Paul, March 30. An old man
who gave his name as Joseph Sutter
was arrested today while begging in the
streets. At the station he was searched
and there was found two pocketfuls of
silver, $165 in bills, a bank-book show
ing a balance of $1,500 to his credit and
certificates of deposit on New ' York
banks for over $20,000. A" book was
found containing papers and letters in
German and patent-right papers in Ger
man and English showing that he is the
inventor of a successful tide and river
motor. The papers were made out to
Joseph Sutter, No. 200 Worth street
New York. He has traveled on foot all
the wav from New York, he says, and
that he has been arrested twice before,
once in Uhicago ana once in uuuaio,
He admitted that he was begging on the
streets, but would give no reason for it
It is thought that he is suffering from
Be Wanted Money.
New York, March 30. The steamer
Saginaw brings news that President
Heureaux. of San Domingo, on March
4th visited the French bank at San Do
mingo City, broke into the safe and took
$62,000 in cash. He attempted to leave
for Monte Chris to, bat was prevented
by two French men-of-war, who do-
manded reparation and an indemnity of
$100,000. The United States Jship Kear
sarge was in port at the time.

A Diabolical Murder.
Pine Bluff, Ark., March. 30. News.
is just learned of the diabolical murder
Phil Gardrierj at Sherrill. The mur
derers left a note on the body saying:
C. O. D., collect three months' board.
Dr. Sherrill, keep your man at home and
he will not get lost." They poured
alcohol over him before killing him and
set him on fire. Burns were discovered
all over the tortured body. Three men
and three women were placed in jail
this morning, charged with the murder.
Two more are under surveillance.
Cholera Again In St. Petersburg.
St. Petersburg, March 30. Cholera
has again appeared in this city. It is
known fatal cases are of daily occur
rence. It is thought the authorities
will'not resume the policy of last year of
making a regular daily announcement of
new cases and deaths. All news is
suppressed. There are disquieting ru
mors as to the situation in the interior.
Sanitary stations in the Volga provinces,
where the disease created great ravages
last year, have been reopened. Special
steamers with sanitary officers cruise
the Volga to pick up cholera patients.
It is believed the government has grave
secret information. -
. The Behring Sea Dispute.
Washington, March 30. The cases
and counter-cases of the United States
and Great Britain, under the treaty to
arbitrate the Behring' sea difficulties
between the two countries, were simul
taneously sent to the United Senate to
day and to the house of parliament in
London. Briefly stated, the case of the
United States is that all the rights of
Russia in respect to. the seal fisheries in
Behring sea, as to the water boundary
established by the treaty of March 30,
1867, between, that nation and the
United States, and all power and au
thority possessed and aseerted by Rus
sia to protect said ngnts, passed unim
paired to the United States under that
treaty ; that the United States has such
property and interest in the Alaskan
seal herd as to justify the employment
by that nation upon the high seas of
such means as are responsibly necessary
to prevent the destruction of such herd.
and to secure the possession and bene
fit of the same to the United States, and
that all acts and proceedings of the
United States, done and had for the pur
pose of protecting such property and
interest, were justifiable and' Etand jus
tified, and that compensation should be
made to the United States by Great
Britain by the payment of the amount
of losses to the United States, or such
other sum as may be deemed to be just.
The case of Great Britain, on the
other hand, is that Behring sea is an
open sea, in which all nations have a
right to fish. It is asserted that Great
Britain has throughout been favorably
disposed to the adoption of general
measures for the control of the fur seal
fisheries, should these be found to be
necessary and desirable with a view to
the protection of fur seals, provided that
such measures be equitable and framed
on just grounds of common interest, and
the adhesion of other powers be secured
as a guarantee of their continued and
impartial execution. .
Both parties file claims for damages
the United States for losses to its reve
nue and on account of losses to the Alas
kan Commercial Company, because of
the reduced number of skins taken,
owing to the diminution of the herd by
the pelagic sealing of British vessels,
and Great Britain on account of losses
to owners of vessels by the United States.
The Trip of the Portland Girl.
St Louis, March 29. Miss Edith Day,
who is circling the country against Miss
Doolittle, reached here this evening from
Washington, leaving later on the Iron
Mountain for the city of Mexico, where

Washington, March 29. President
Cleveland discussed with some Oregon
democrats today the appointment of a
district judge to succeed the late Judge
Deady. The impression prevails here
