NOTES OF WARNING. The Returning Strikers Threatened. MR. PRICK IS RECOVERING. la W .audi Hare ll.ale.l and He Dir. eta Buatnea Trapped Up In Bed Mure Non-Union Man Arrivlug Tue Klot Wa a Fake Pittmuiiig, Pa., July 29 A bulletin issued by Surgeon Litcnfield at 9 o'clock this morning says : Frick passed a comfortable night and resting easily but he is doing more than that. He is now almost well. His wounds have healed and there is no trace of inflammation nor has suppura tion been noticed. He eats heartily, rends much and sits propped up in bed. Daily, the head of departments, reports to him and practically the wounded chairman directs the conduct of the enormous Carnegie business. At the Mills. The gas retorts in the Carnegie city union mills started this mornine and will be increased in pressure until the mill is ready to start. There are about 150 machinists and laborers making re pairs to both plants which are nearly finished and when Superintendent Oil Ion gives the word both mills wi 1 be operated. Meanwhile the strikers stand idly by and the company is prepared to fill both mills with non-union men at short notice. Enough more non-union men were sent to Homestead last night and this morning to increase the num ber there to 900. This morning the tug boat Tide took 75 men up the river to the Homestead mills. There have been no other departments started but the entire plant with the exreption of a couple of slat mills is doing business with a single turn. The AnarchistB. Superintendent of Police Roger Omara will make no further charges against the anarchist Frederick Mollick, arrested at Lo g Branch as an accomplice of the assassin Bergman, lie snys one charge is sufficient lor him. The superinten dent ridicules the attempt to arrest him for kidnaping Mollick made by what he calls "two cheap lawyers." He has the authority of the city of Pittsburg and he savs Mollick came willingly. Besides this the prisoner was not in hfs custody until after they crossed the Pennsylva nia line being in that oi a reporter. No further arrests of anarchists were made bore this morning but the police are vigilant. A search in Henry Bauer's room revealed a pocket hook conlainin letters from Spies, Nina Van Zandt, John Most and other information as to groups and names which will be used as evi dence. Bauer's possessions show him to be a member oi the inner circle of anarchists. The police have photo graphs discovered in Bauer's rooms of the man who was with Bergman just before the tragedv occurred in i rick s office. Bergman made no further ad mission in jail. It is said he will be defended by a fund to be raised among Mew York Inends. Warning the Backsliders. Pittsburg, Pa., Julv 29 Of the total number of Homestead strikers who re turned to work in the mill, about 125, it is said, every man has received terrible warning of dire punishment if he does not ouit work at once. Ihe men on go- ing home have found sand bags tied to their doors and everv morning tor week past requests and warnings have been hung on their front knobs, lhey have received letters tlirough the mails which c -ntain bloodthirsty threats of punishment for deserting the ranks ot the strikers. In addition to this, com mittees of strikers have approached each man and personally warned him of his peril in remaining at work. These threats have been reported to the Car negie officials who havo promised pro tection both inside and outside the works. The strikers have driven Bix foremen out of the best paying department in the Homestead mills, where the men earned If5 a day. They were told to leave off work under penalty of being severely dealt with. Then when one of them was caught out side the mills he was severely beaten, and he and others told they would be murdered if they did not leave. Six fore men left on Monday and were given by officials 10 days to return or their posi tions would be forfeited. Two returned, but they came back late and were not re-employed. Notes Homestead, July 29 Several inci dents have occurred recently going to show the temper of the locked out steel workers and to make plain the taut that the condition of affairs is not improved in this respect. The withdrawal of so many troops has given some hot headed men among the workmen the idea that thev now have more liberty to forcibly prevent the coming ol non-union men to the works. The society for the prevention of cruelty to strikers is transacting busi ness. Forlv-five non-union men were placed in Hoiiienead works this morning. The 23-inch mill started today. Tbe men being familiarized with the work ing of mills. Pittsburg, July 29 The story of the riot on the train irom Cincinnati yester day bringing men to Himestead was an invention of a tramp printer and wholly untrue. The men on the train are all now at work at Homeste d. The great strike has been on a month. It is esti mated the loss so far is over a million dollars. The strike is seriously affecting busi- tiPHfl in the town, as many merchants have not capital to grant long credits. One groceryman failed this morning. At present there are 7,800 of Car negie s men out, as lonuws; Homestead Twenty-ninth street mill.... Thirty-third s reet mill Beaver Falls mills Charles Mansfield, a real estate dealer, testified that the first shot was fired by the Pinkertons from the boat. The men on the boat Baid: "Men, we are Pink ertons, and are going in that yard. We will give you 15 minutes to get out of that mill-yard." That disposes of the idea that tbe locked out men attacked the lnkertons. Prick Hired Them. During Prick's examination the fol lowing questions were put and evaded : "Did you have anything to do with furnishing the arms?" asked Mr. Boat ner. "I am not sure," replied the witness, "I may have had, but I cannot say. 1 may have and likely did have with our New York agent, Mr. Schoonmaker." "But you should know. Did you or did you not?" "Well, I have answered that ques tion." Mr. Boatner thought not, and, upon eating to the chair Mr. Uates said the witness could answer more spe cifically. Mr. 1 rick then said he thought he had. Mr. Boatner then tried to get the wit ness to answer directly whether his firm had advised Pinkerton that arms would be needed; but all Mr. Fr.ck wou d sav was he believed he had. "In the employment of these men, was it stipulated they were to be armed?" "No, sir j I think not." "Well, that is all," said Mr. Boatner. He has evaded this question all through." That disposes ol tue popular idea tnal the Ciiruegie-Phipps side of ihe ques tion will stand the searching light of truth. Men at $1 a Day. William Koberts, an ex-president of the Amalgamated Association testified: "In January the firm asKed the men to present a scale. We did so. Two weeks later we were sent tor, we sup posed, to discuss it. instead we were presented with a scale by tne lirm wno asked that we present their scale too. We agreed to do so, providing tney would give us some good reasons for ask ing such reductions. They would not discuss the subject, but finally Mr. Pot ter said the heaters and men ime my self were making too much money. 1 said this was strange, because there were no reductions proposed in the wages of tbe men whom they claimed were making too much. The roduc.ions affected some who for eight weeks had not averased $1 ner day. Un one occa- sion Mr. rotter saiu to me: vtaiiiiu July comes; your little gold mine will be closed up. the preparations lor trouble, such as grating sewers, erecting fences, etc., indicated preparations for a fight." This also disposes of the idea that the locked-out meu were making if lb a day, and also shows how long the Carnegie people have been contemplating the light on their men, and with what deep laid deliberation the preparations for bloodshed were made. warrants for the arrest of H. C. Frick, chairman; S. F. Lovejoy, secretary; J. G. LeiBhman and Andrew McCurry officials of the Car negie company. J. A. Potter and G. A. Gorry, superintendents at the mills. Roliert A. and William Pinkerton and half a dozen of their men who took part in the fight at Homestead, charging ! him. It is not true that they were ac- them with murder. It is probable in formation will be made later against them for conspiracy to depress the wages of workmen and incite a riot by bringing armed men into tioniesteau. The suits were delayed on account of the shooting of Frick and it is not the intention to arrest him at present. The attorneys for the Btrikors held a long consultation alter the Informations had been made with the result that it was decided to serve the warrants only on Lovejoy and Potter. It is under stood Lovejoy will surrender, waive hearing and usk the court to fix bail. From investigations made into the history of Alexander Berkman and his associates, it seems more likely than ever that the attempted assassination of Mr. Frick was the result ot an organized conspiracy by a band of anarchists hav ing headquarters in JNew lorK. an anarchist. About the time I came here Berkman and Emma Goldman be came intimate. They were both anar chists of the same class. One night they and a friend of Berkman met at an anarchist meeting at 66 Orchard street. They were then strangers. Berkman's friend introduced Emina Goldman to not less than $25,000 and may be $50,000. LOVED A PRIZfi FIGHTER. . 3.S00 . . 1,500 . 1,500 . . 1,000 Total 7,800 What It Costs.

This disposes 'of the idea that the men were employed for protective and not for aggressive purposes. Among a host of other witnesses PinsnuRO, Pa., Aug. 1 Frick passed a coinlortable night and is out of bed this morning. He ate a hearty break fast ami no doubt will visit his office later in the week. It is said no more bulletins of his condition will be issued bv the attending surgeon. The Thirty third street union mill of the Carnegie Steel company is in operation this morn ing with non-union men headed by Pittsburg policemen. Two new men were taken into the works under guard at 6 o'clock tbi morning. The exact number of non union workmen at the Thirty-third street null is not yet known to Secretary Lovejoy. Superintendent of Police Omara and District Attorney Barlow will today arrange satisfactory bail among them selves lor the release of Bauer and Knoid, suspected accomnlices of Berg man, and will ask Judge Magee to ac cept it tomorrow morning because of the absence from the city of Senior Council Dickey. No suit in lams case will be entered today. They are expected, however, tomorrow. Mure non-union men were taken to Homestead this morning on the steamer. There were at least one hundred in the party. Homestead, Aug. 1 General Super intendent Potter claims that there was a bre.,k in the ranks ol the strikers in the mechanical department last nighl and that 25 of the best skilled workmen re turned to work this morning. The com mittee ot strikers at the gate when the men went in assert that buteight of the 1,200 men in the mechanical department have broken away. It is said that there are now Beveral strikeis in the mill in fluencing non-Unionists to quit. This plan was adopted with great sue. ess in 1882, when a whole lurnoi strikers went back to work and soon organiz d all the non-Unionists, taking them out in an other night. It is announced that those who par ticipated in the brutal attack on the Pinkertons after the surrender July Gth will be prosecuted ior aggravated assault and battery, highway robbery, larceny, pocket-picking and other crimes and misdemeanors. It is stated that several women were particularly active during the time the men ran the gauntlet an 1 afier it, and taking their property and hiding it. lhey are also to De prose cuted. The Amalgamated Association condemn this occurrence and is said to be aiding in gathering evidence against the offeiilors. The Pinkerton agency will take part in the prosecution by iur niehing evidence of the men who wer; assaulted and robbed. The hundred deputies on guard at the mills now will be increased to 300 shortly. Superintendent Potter says erms are now in the mill to arm their watchmen if necessary. The upper union mihs started up non-union this inornitiir. no trouble occurred. W. J. Brennan. attorney for the Amalgamated Association, owing to the wmrt not beina in session, win not pre sent until tomorrow the petition under the trade tribunal act of 1883, pioviding for the settlement of wage disputes by arbitration. Friedmann, the attorney for anarchists, will tomorrow ask for their release on bail. IAJIS BITES.

Pittsburg, Aug. 3 Secretary Lovejoy of the Carnegie steel works, when seen by a United Press reporter this morning, made an official, emphatic denial of the story published today to the effect that Andrew Carnegie withholds his gift to the city in tbe event of the City Council taking official notice of the protests from trades unions. He said there is not one word ot truth in the story that Carnegie is angry and wid take baclc nis gin. "Such talk," he eaid, "is tiie veriest nonsense. It has not been talked of here, and I am confident tbe author of story did not get the statement from anyone connected with Carnegie." AUg. O XlUgU JVOBB, MiO ANARCHIST BERKMAN. On Monday of last week Karl Knold, an alleged anarchist, living at Pittsburg, was arrested as an accomplice oi uer it man. Two days later Chief of Police Layton, of Long Branch, arrested F. Mollick, an alleged anarchist, who has been sending money to Berkman since be has been in Pittsburg. Later tne police at Pittsburg arrested Henry Bauer, the leader of a brttid of anarchists at Pittsburg, na an accomplice oi Berkman. The police authorities of Now York and of Pittsburg are looking alter evi dence uoon which to make more arrests. From this evidence they expect to prove that Berkman was not like Noreross, a crazy crank, but a representative of an organization of anp.rchists, chosen bv them by lot to kill the leader of the Carnegie Company. The anarchists have taken a. deep interest in the Homestead labor troubles since the battle with the Pinkertons on the morning of July (i, s ys the New York World. On July 7, when the locked-out men at Homestead were ready at a moment's notice to repel with Winchesters an invasion by the Pinkertons, and the town was in a state of continual excitement, three strangers arrived on the evening train. They brought with them bundles, and in less than an hour from the time of their arrival the streets of the town were strewn with thousands of pink and whito circulars addressed to the work ingmen, calling them brothers and urging them to rosort to dynamite, and murder, if necessary, to protect their rights. The workmen at Homestead resented the interference of the anarchists and promptly arrested them. Two of them were forced to leave town on the Lrst train, while the third, evidently the leader, was locked up until morning. The circulars were torn into mts ny tue workingmen. and an hour alter their distribution there was not a single cir cular left in Homestead. When Henry Bauer was arrested at Pittsburg he admitted that he was one of the meu who distributed tne anarcn- Bt circulars at Homestead, and that he was acquainted with Bergman. That the anarcnisiB um not give up their attempts to settle the Homestead labor difficulty is evident from subse quent events. The history of Berkman shows mat ne was an anarcuist oi a most radical kind. He did not work more than halt the time, and the wages that he received could only have barely supported him. He was a frequent at tendant at iinarcnisi meetings, ana De longed to a Bociety known as the auton omists, the most radical of anarchist societies. Those who have heard him talk say that he was an impressive speaker and never hesitated in urging the people to resort to violence. Miss nma Ciola man. his associate, was nominally a dressmaker, but she spent the greater portion ol her tune in keeping house lor her lover and in accompanying him to anarchistic meetings. She took an important part in these meetings, and when she denounced the wealthy class her fiery invectives created a deep im pression. The little money that liernman earned could have barely supported him. Not withstanding this fact he secured money enough to go to Pittsburg, buy a new- suit ot clothes and pay lor two weeks- board. The money was undoubtedly furnished to him by his friends in New York, who knew his mission in Pittsburg or whom he deceived, if he went to Pittsburg as a representative of the anarchists, for the purpose of killing Mr. Frick, then the money was furnished by the anar chists, raised undoubtedly by them through small subscriptions. The arrest of F. Mollick, who has been identified as the man who sent at least two express orders to Berkman while he was in Pittsburg is important, as it will undoubtedly show that he was being lurnished money by friends who were anarchists. HOW HE MET EMMA GOLDMAN. A Russian friend of Berkman has given the following account of his life: Berkman b lather was a wealthy mer chant. Ten years ago, when Berkman was about 14 years old, he sent him to a private Hebrew school. Berkman cre ated a lot of trouble for the teacher. He declared openly in the class room that he didn't believe there was a God. Xhe boy was expelled from the school, and his father sent him to the Gymnasium. It wasn't long before he professed Nihil istic principles. One day a Nihilist newspaper was found in his room. He was lorced to leave the Gymnasium. His father spent much money bribing the police to prevent his Bon'a arrest. At that time Berkman was a daredevil. He didn't seem to be afraid of anything. He stole from the government printing office type to euaole the Nihilists to nrint their secret circulars. About five years ago a fit. reiersonrg .-uiiiobi named Ji-cobovich visited Kowno. He was arrested. Berkman got afraid at his arrest and came to this country. "I came here from Russia three years ago and met Berkman. I found that he had changed from a nihilist to a rabid anarchist. He told me that Joseph niminted with each other in Russia Aftor the meeting Emma Goldman said to them: 'Brother anarchists, I hsve no place to sleep. Can you get a bed for me?' Thev told her they also had no place to sleep. They walked about the streets all night. The next day Berk man got money somewhere. He hired a room, and he and Emtna Goldman began to live together. "1 know Emma Goldman well. She is a more rabid anarchist than even Berkman. She also believes in free love and very frequently she lived at the same time with Berkman and some other anarchist. A year or so ago she delivered a speech one night at an an archist meeting at loo liasi croauway in which Blie said all anarcnists should practise free love. Her sentiments shocked mauy of the women present, and they left the meeting. "I have been told that Berkman was despondent because he was without monev. He was in bard luck, and 1 know he entertained the idea of taking his own life. The anarchist principle is that an anarchist who wants to commit suicide must first do something against the common enemy, capital." Abraham Goldman, the father of Emma Goldman, lives at 182 Chatham street, Rochester, N. Y., and is an up holsterer. THE AUTONOMISTS. The Anarchist group to which Berk man, Bauer, and Mollick belong differs considerably from that larger order of which llerr Most is tne leauer, dui me difference is in degree only. The Auton omists, as they are called, hold the same general views as other Anarchists, but they go farther. They do not admit that any one has a right to live who does not hold their own radical views, and they do not hesitate to take human life ior any eause which suits their pur- Colombus.

Joseph Peukort, formerly of Vienna, is the founder of this Beet, which in cludes men of such a character that they have been again and again repudiated by the more discreet followers of Most. Before Peukert found it necessary to leave Vienna to save his neck he pro mulgated the theory that it was per fectly justifiable to kill any rich man if his riches might thereby be appropri ated to the cause of anarchy. A swarm of assassins gathered abouthis standard. This was the beginning ot the Autono mist order, which has now spread all over the world. It was a dozen years ago, and Peukert then published a paper called Die Autonomie. Shortly after the formation of the or der a Vienna banker was murdered and his safes robbed. The crime was attrib uted to Peukert and he fled. He went to London and later came to America. Here ho edits th'e sheet called Die Anar chist. When he arrived two years ago, alter being repudiated by the anarchists of Germany and England, he was de nounced by Most. He then formed a group of radicals in New York. They termed themselves "The Pioneers of Liberty." They have never been recog nized by Mosl's followers, who call them cutthroats and murderers. It is to this group that Berkman, Mollick and Em ma Goldman belong. Peukort has no known home, but travels over the country. He has formed groups of Autoinonists in several other cities. riiii.ui, Up pit a F:trgur (jtivoi Uhm -Meulaily Uubaluuoed. strike leader, this' morning swore out ' Barondess had induced him to becoma Philadelphia, Aug. 3 James Hunter, who five vears ago startled the financial world by a precipitate flight from this citv after forging paper to the amount of $100,200, was today held in $10,000 bail to answer, having returned unex pectedly on Sunday. When the steam ship Seguranca arrived in New York on Sunday it had on board the fugitive, broken in health, his mind shattered, and bearing but a faint resemblance to the once-honored business man who was at the head of the extensive mill firm of James and John Hunter. John Hunter was receiver of taxes and the firm was recognized in business circles as one of the most reliable in the State. The monev raised by John Hun ter is sur-posed to have been lost in Western land speculation. Physicians examined James Hunter today and had no hesitation in pronouncing him incur ably affected mentally. Subsequently all the facts were placed before District Attorney Graham and he accepted bail. Ihe return of Mr. Hunter was so quietly conducted that some members ol the family will only learn of it through the newspapers this morning. There is no doubt in the minds of those who brought hiin back tlmt he will never be in a condition to stand trial. M.irn "Ciipllalii" ob.ittu i'oajeaaioti of Taper by Kobbtry. Si-okane, Aug. 3 Three masked men entered tbe office of Dr. E. Olmstead at noon yesterday and bound and gagged Charles Parker, tbe negro office boy, tying him to theradia'or. They then forced onen a desk and abstracted there from valuable papers; then left quietly. Halt an hour later the doctor returned and found the hoy unable to move. He immediately gave the alarm, but too late to catch the robbers. There is a story behind the robbery. Olmstead is interested in the Post Falls Shingle Company and charged other members with crookedness. Sending an expert to Post Falls he had tha books and papers brought to Spokane. The books were locked in a safe at the Hotel Spokane, but the papers were put in a desK in the office. It was to secure these that the robbery was committed. The papers were stolen to prevent the true manner of business of the coinnany from becoming known. The books are reported out of balance lor a consider able sum. There is no clue to the per petrators ol the deed. This method of obtain in property seems to be much in vogue in Spokane, as Secretary of State Allen Weir, who recently had the books of an insurance company stolen from him in tbe same way, can testify.

According to the story told, the count married a daughter of Millionaire Nulty, of ,M Iwaukee, three years ago, but subsequently separated rom her in T,coma. He represented to Eigholz, who had known him in Baden, that if he had money to get to Germany with his wife, be could secure sufficient funds there to pay hiB debts. Eigholz loaned him $000 and the Count proceeded alone to Baden, but shortly after returned to this citv and induced a number ot German residents of California to subscribe sums for the proposed establishment of an eighty thousand-dollar brewery at Sisson, California. Eigholz learned of his operations in this State and wrote him, domanding the return of his money. In reply he received a letter on which he based the charges against Count.

Boston, Mass., Aug. 2 The Tremont theatre and the Boston theatre gave their performances last night without a license, it was all on account of the re luctance of the proprietors and managers of the two houses to come before the board of aldermen as requested to talk over a little matter which the board is determined shall be stopped at once. The periurmers in various theatres ol late have caused tiieir audiences to laugh over gags which have reflected on the dignity and importance of the board of aldermen. In consequence tho com mittee on icenses called all t a propri etors of theatres before them and made the stipulation before granting the licenses that all such ridicule shall be eliminated from performances hereafter. Proprietors or managers were all pres ent except from the Tremont and Bos ton theatres. The latter took no notice of the request to be present, but Nat Childs, of tho Tremont, wrote a note saying that all the members of the firm were out ol town and could not be pres- ent- , w "He might have come himseU, though," a member of the committee said when the letter was read. The license will probab.y be granted when the proprietors of theatres agree to the aldermen's rules. Salt Lake, Utah, Aug. 1 A prize fighter, a heavy-weight rival of John L. Sullivan, Iuib caused a tremendous sen sation in the Mormon church. He stole a bishop's daughter because he loved her. His name is Herbert Slade, and the sporting fraternity of this country know him ell. He is now hiding from one of the maddest men in this vicinity. His name is Bishop John Sneasely, and he ruled over a email agricultural town known as Mover, about 109 miles from Salt Lake. He is wealthy. His only child, a girl about 18 vears old, was a recognized beauty. She had all the young mem bers of the Mormon church within a circuit of 500 milei at her feet, but it was not until the giant fighter, Slade, appeared in the town that she met the man of her choice. Bishop Sneasely learned of his daughter's love making before the elope ment, and bis anger know no bounds. Tbe girl was locked in her chamber, from which Slade stole her in.the most approved and romantic style. They has tened to a justice oi the peace, who lived 20 miles away over a dreary stretch of desert, and were made one for the usual consideration. The bishop and his clan pursued the elopers, but they arrived at tbe house ot the justice of the peace half an hour too late.

C, Aug. 1 The bark Richard III. arrived at the mines about ten days ago to load for San Francisco. She carried a non-union crew, and hardly had tbe anchor been dropped be fore the captain became convinced that he was going to have trouble. Every union sailor he met insinuated that terrible things would happen, and his own men . ame to him almost hourly and reported threats of violence offered them. The captain communicated with the police, but paid little attention to the Signs of danger. The cargo was be ing loaded, and it was thought the bark would sail without molestation. On the night of July 27 astrange thing happened. The captain for some reason did not sleep on board, and when he hailed bis ship tor a boat in the morn ing, she being at anchor in Departure Bay, he could get no answer. Then he routed up a waterman and investigated. The bark was all but deserted, a pet cat being the only living creature aboard. Where the crew had gone to was a mys tery, as not the slightest clue presented itself. The suggestion was accepted that they had deserted in a body, no better theory being offered, and preparations were being made to ship fresh men, when one of the sailors appeared at police head quarters and said he had just escaped trom the union men's lock-up. His tale, which was not at first credited, was as follows: While all hands were sleeping about midnight about twenty or thirty union men, the majority armed with revolvers, boarded the bark, and, with threats of immediate death, hustled them into boats alongside, in which they were rowed ashore, being told to consider themselves prisoners. They were or dered to march, and about ten minutes' walk through tbe darkness brought them to an old house before which stood two trees taller than the others and standing out from the background of the lorest. This was the only landmark possible to be noted by the men, all of whom were strangers to the place, in the dim starlight. All were hurried into the building and up the rickety staircase into an un furnished attic, where they were told to make themselves comfortable, but not to think for a moment that they could get away Investigation showed that this was true an hour or two later, as two union men were lound on guard at the door. When the guard was changed n the morning one of the captives man aged to slip out unseen and carried a report to Cb.e: ot Police Stewart. The chiet, with 1'rovincial uihccrs McKiunon and Stevenson, at once went to work, and belore the loss ot the prisoner had been discovered by the union men, located his prisoner. The guards were completely surprised at the appearance of the posse, but offered leeble resistance, demanding a search warrant at first, but making no attempt to give battle against the superior num- nei'B of the police. The guards, two well-known lightB of the 'Longshoremen's union, were ar rested and marched to tbeNanaimo jail. lhey refused to give the names ol their associates in tho kidnaping, and the im prisoned men could not lurnish an in telligent description of any of tne party. I'. Glyn, formerly oi San Francisco and Seattle, resident agent oi the Seamen's union, was searched fur high and low, but he had disappeared. Saturday the two captured guards were arraigned for unlawlully hindering and preventing the crow from engaging in a lawful occupation. The charge oi kidnaping was nut laid, as no one could swear that either man was with the party raiding the bark. Deputy Attorney-General A. G. Smith prosecuted, and Barristor II. A. Simpson, of Na naimo, defended. The latter made the best of a poor case, but the two guards, A. Watson and J. Franklin, were convicted and sentenced to one and two months re spectively. Identification failed in the case of two others arrested ou suspicion. The police are still working on the main charge, Superintendent llussuy, head of the police in British Columbia, having some of bis best men engaged. HfCrettry of the Navy Cltrgd With Hwlndiing and Lylug. O IN Kit i. ruv. Washington, I). C, Aug. 1 Some very sharp correspondence is promised between the second controller of the treasury and the secretary of the navy as soon as the latter learns that the for mer has exprossed himself in an official letter, as doubting the word of the head of the navy department. it seems that Colonol McCowley, lately deceased, was asked by the de partment to vacate the quarters he was occupying in this city while awaiting retirement, and proceed to Philadel phia. This was done, the secretary says, to enable certain repairs to be made to the house occupied by the colonel at the heudquurters. The case finally came before the controller, who decided that Colonel McCow ley was not entitled to be paid commutation for quarters. Secretary Tracy wrote the controller that McCowley had vacated the quar ters for tbe convenience of tho govern ment. The controller wrote to the navy department saying that the oilier had not vacated hiB quarters in Washington for the benefit of the government or its convenience but that the whole matter was contracted with a view to bringing the case within regulations entitling the officer to commutation. In other words, the secretary was guilty ot trying to swindle tbe government and then lying about it. The controller's letter wont to tbe commandant oi the murine coips in its regular travels as a red tape document and the secretary never saw it. The of ficers at the marine corps had not the courage to show the letter to the secre tary and have allowed the matter to drop. The chances are that when knowledge of the letter reaches the sec retary there will be some interesting re marks of and to the controller. Louisville, Ky., Aug. 1 Speed 8.
