AMERICAN SIDE OF THE ISSUE
Mexican Villagers Will Fight Rather
Than Pay Taxes A Bloody
Battle Looked For.
Pabis, April 13. Upon the resump
tion of the sitting of the Bearing sea
court of arbitration today, James C.
Carter continued, in behalf of the United
States, the presentation of the American
side of the cage, commenced yesterday.
He read letters bearing upon the ques
tion at issue, sent by James G. Blaine
when secretary of state to Sir Julian
Pauncefote, then British minister at
Washington. After reading these leti
tefs, Carter lengthily commented on
them. He contended that Blaine's
communication to the British repre
sentative showed that the basis of nego
tiations for the regulation of the sealing
industry was to preserve the species,
and this was apart from the question of
rights. Lord Salisbury, Carter further
contended, in his dispatches to Paunce
fote in response to Blaine's letters, had
ably and ingeniously evaded rather than
answered Blaine's argument, that pelagic
fishing was contra bono. At this point
Senator John T. Morgan, one of the ar
bitrators on the part of the United
States, inquired whether Canada had
approved the draft of the convention be
fore Salisbury had made his suggestion
relative to the 10-mile limit. This ques
tion led to a discussion, in which Carter,
Sir Charles Russell (counsel for Great
Britain), Sir John Thompson, of Canada
(one of the British arbitrators), and
Senator Morgan took part.
A Bloody Battle Looked For.
Albuquerque, N. M., April 13. Tele
graphic advices were received yesterday
by an Albuquerque gentleman, who has
interests in that country, that troops
have just been sent by the Mexican gov
ernment from Chihuahua to Temohic to
exterminate the friends and sympathiz
ers who are emulating the example and
seeking to avenge the extermination of
the Spartan band of Aztecs in Septem
ber last. It was the last known tribe of
the Aztec race, and their village near
Temohic is situated about 100 miles
from Chihuahua. This little band, for
tified within the walls of their village,
slaughtered 1 ,000 Mexican soldiers be
fore the last one of themselves suc
cumbed to the rifle and the bayonet.
The natives of the surrounding country,
who have followed their example in re
fusing to pay taxes, are now up in arms.
The battle will be a bloody one.
The Farmers' Warehouse.
Tacoma, Wash., April 12. Senator
McCroskey, president, and William
English, secretary of the Farmers' Ter
minal Warehouse company of Eastern
Washington, are in the city today to
sign final papers, locating in Tacoma
the 1 ,000,000-bushel warehouse which
the farmers will build on tidewater.
Work is to be begun in May.
The Hun of Salmon.
Astobia, April 12. The run of salmon
continues good, and all the canneries
are putting up fish, but in not very large
quantities at present. The fishermen's
union has called off the fishermen until
satisfactory arrangements are made
with the canners, by which they expect
to get $1.15 per fish.

Washington, April 13 The president
has sent to the senate the following
A.W. Terill, of Texas, minister to
Turkey. This is the position that was
sought by Robert Miller.

justice of the supreme court of Arizona.

The Flag; Taken Down.
San F-eaxcisco, April 6. The stars
and stripes, which for two months have
floated from above the government
building, have been hauled down, and
the remaining forces from the United
States cruiser Boston have been sent
aboard that vessel. Nothing indicative I
of American authoritv remains in Hon-
olulu, save Minister Stevens and Com
missioner James H. Blount, of Georgia,
The latter sits in his easy chair at his
cottage at the Hawaiian hotel cogitating
no one knows what. Probably no more
distasteful task ever fell to the lot of a
gallant American seaman than was im
posed upon Lieutenant Draper, of the
United States marine corps of the Bos-
ton, who has been stationed at the gov
ernment house since the provisional
government assumed power, when April
1st, in the presence of a crowd number
ing probably 2,000 persons, he blew the
notes of a retreat from his bugle and
"Old.Glory" sank from the sight of the
throng, and was replaced by the hybrid
colors of the Hawaiian monarchy, which
still remains the flag of this land. The
report that Commissioner Blount would
order the American flag down and the
protectorate abolished reached the
streets the night of March 31st, preced
ing the day of the occurrence, but did
not became general. It created, at first,
among the American party a feeling of
consternation, not altogether unmixed
with indignation. Tnis was due to the
fact, perhaps, that Blount has main
tained a Chinese wall about the pur
poses of the mission here, and has satis
fied neither side as to whether he came
as an envoy to investigate or as a m'nis
ter to negotiate in a matter of vitaF im
portance to them.

THE ATTORNEY GENERAL.
Brief Sketch of the Career of Hon. Rich
Richard Olney, who has been selected
for attorney general in President Cleve
land's cabinet, is one of the best- known
corporation lawyers in New England.
He has been for several years attorney
for the Boston & Maine railroad and is
consulting lawyer for many other cor
porations. His fitness for the position
to wnicn ne nas oeen appointed is un
questioned and his personal character
commands respect from men of all
parties. His appointment was a sur
prise to democrats, as Mr. Olney has al
ways refused to accept public office, but
it cannot be objected to by any faction
of the democratic party, as he has been
HON. RICHARD OLNEY.
recognized as a leader in that organiza
tion. Mr. Olney is a man of large
wealth and his income from bis prac
tice is believed to be fully S30,000 a
year. His winter residence is in the
fashionable part of Boston and he has a
summer place near Gray Gables on
Buzzard's bay, where he has been the
friend and companion of President
Cleveland. Mr. Olney has twice re
fused the proffer of a seat on the su
preme bench of Massachusetts. One
year, merely to oblige his party friends,
he accepted the democratic nomination
for attorney general, but was defeated.
The only time he went outside of party
lines was when Butler was nominated
for governor and he refused to. support
him. When the vacancy occurred in the
office of chief justice of the United
States Mr. Olney's name was presented
to Mr. Cleveland, but the appointment
went to Melville W. Fuller because he
was a western man. In addition tp be
ing counsel for the Boston & Maine sys
tem, Mr. Olney is general counsel of the

Another Large English Failure.
London, April 12. The English, Scot
tish & Australian chartered bank has
failed, with liabilities amounting, it is
said, to 8,000,000, or $40,000,000. No
estimates of the assets has as yet been
made, but they are supposed to be large.
The bank .was incorporated by a royal
charter in 1.852, and claimed to have a
paid-up capital df'jetiOO.OOO and a reserve
fund of 310,000. It transacted a bank
ing and exchange business between
Great Britain and the Australian colo
nies, and had large deposits. The only
reason given for the failure is that there
has been for several weeks a steadily
increasing withdrawal of deposits.
ABE LINCOLN'S CARD.
A Relic Showing: the Great Man's
The Pasteboard Used by Abraham Lin
coln After ills Return from Con
gress Some Characteristic
The business card of Abraham Lin
coln, reproduced here from the Chicago
Inter Ocean, was riot an advertisement,
but a small glazed card, on which re
printed his name, business, address and
comments, as reproduced in the fac
simile here presented. The lettering
is plain on the card, and under "To
whom it may concern,'' the letters are
small and humorously set forth the fol

started on or before March 4 next, wlion I will
be ready to Swap Horses, Dispense Lau; Make
Jokes, Split Hails, and perform other matters in
simoil way. "
The card belonged to a collection of
such curios and a number of autographs
in the possession of the late George W.
Baker, ef Chicago. The authenticity of
the card cannot be doubted as Mr.
Baker treasured it for years among his
collection and frequently exhibited it.
though he left no written document of
how it came . into, his possession. It is
known, however, from what Mr. Baker
had said about it, that the card was one
of a lot Mr. Lincoln had printed and.
used after his return from the congress
to which he was elected in 1846 over
Rev. Peter Cart wright.
Mr. Lincoln was not a candidate for
reelection, and the disinclination to be
a candidate is well conveyed in his "to
whom it may concern" wherein, as.
well, he expresses his satisfaction at
being at home again with the hope of
securing more congenial work than had
been incumbent upon him in the dis
charge of his duties in congress.
The quaintness of the humor and the
oddity of the address to the public on
the business card are eminently charac
teristic of Lincoln's originality. There
are expressions, too, in the "to. whom: it
may concern" with which Mr. Lincoln
familiarized the country afterward.
"Swapping horses" and "splitting
rails," which were not enough striking
in 1848, or the man using them was not
enough famous to cause anyone to per
petrate a joke on him in manufacturing
such a business card for A. Lincoln.
The work was Lincoln's. The card
bears the impress of the man as much
as it does -his name.
Too Mean to He Saved.
A big bear chased Peter Hanes, a man
of sixty years, through the woods in
Clarke county, Washington, the other
day and was close at his coat tails when
he ran into the clearing of a neighbor
named McCoy. As both neared the
house the door opened and Mrs. jJcCoy
appeared with a rifle in her hands,
promptly let drive at the bear and
bowled him over dead. Then the un
grateful Peter claimed the hide, as the
finder of the bear, and insisted on his
demand until as a compromise it was
agreed that he and his rescuer divide
the proceeds of its sale.
