THE SEAL LEASE SCANDAL
The Treasury Department Drawn
Into the Quarrel.
CHARGES OF FAVORITISM SHOWN.
A Threatened Revelation Which Will
Ventilate a Most Disgraceful Chap
ter of National History.
Wasiiinuton City, Oct. 25 Those in
the socreta of the old Alaska Commer
cial Company declare that there ia a
very interesting story connected with
the suit, which has been announced by
telegraph from San Francisco, brought
by the Alaska Commercial Company
against the North American Commer
cial Company. It is nominally to re
cover $100,000, the value of 4000 seal
skins recently discharged by the reve
nue cutter Rush.
The suit grows out of a very mixed up
state of aff airs letveen the treasury de
partment, the Alaska company and the
North American company, and the con
test in the courts, it is whispered, will be
watched with unusual interest, because
of alleged scandalous revelations that
must be made to sustain the action of
the treasury department in its support
of the lessees of the islands.
It has been known for some time that
there is bitter rivalry between the two
companies and that the old lessees were
not mincing words in. denunciation of
their successors in the lease of the seal
islands. So long as it was confined to
officials of the company the public had
little interest in it, but now that it
threatens to drag the treasury depart
ment into the quarrel, the wonder is
whether it will not show how far in
fluence haB been exerted through per
sonal and political channels of a very
The whole history of the seal question,
both in a diplomatic and financial way
since last spring, has been a serious
blunder and if the administration es
capes the full revelations that could be
made it will not be because of lack of
material to ventilate one of the most
disgraceful chapters of our national his

A Chicago Sheriff Disfigures a Man Who
Once Escaped From Him.
Chicago, Oct. 23 Canute K. Matson,
sheriff of Cook county, broke the nose of
ex-Chief of Police W. J. McGarigle last
night. McGarigle was a prisoner in jail
three years ago on account of the county
"boodle" scandal, lie wanted to seehis
wife and Matson took him to Mrs. Mc
Garigle's home. McGarigle went into
the bathroom and fled through a win
dow, and Matson never saw him again
until two years had elapsed, when Mc
Garigle walked into the criminal court
and paid a $10,000 fine.
Matson was at a political meeting in
North Clark street last night when Mc
Garigle came in. lie walked up to
whero the big sheriff stood, held out his
hand anil said : "How are you, Matson?
It is a long time since I met you last."
This was the first time the two had
met since McGarigle took his bath, ever
since which the sheriff has entertained
a feeling of hatred towards McGarigle.
When McGarigle held out his hand the
sheriff's face flushed, and without deign'
ing to take his hand he drew back and
his mighty arm smote his former pris
oner a hard blow on the tip of the nose,
breaking that shapely organ. McGarigle
fell to the floor and as soon as he recov
ered hastened away.

A STEAMER ASHORE.
Fierce Gales Visiting the Atlantic Coast
-The Wires Down.
New York, Oct. 25 A dispatch has
been received from Far Rockaway say
ing that a large ocean steamer was
ashore beyond Long Beach. Wires
along the shore were down and no fur
ther particulars could be obtained. The
steamer was reported to be a four mast
ed vessel and was thought by some to be
the Oberdam of the Netherlands Amer
ican line. She was expected to arrive
Wednesday. The only other ocean liner
due today and not reported is the Cir
cassia. T'J Oberdam sailed from Rot
terdam October 11th. She is a four
masted steamer, while the Circassia is
not four masted.

Indians Bun Over and Killed.
Ellessbi roh, Oct. 25 About mid
night last night, a freight train ran over
two Indians a short distance this side of
North Yakima. One was cut clean in
two; the other had one arm and one leg
cut off and was thrown 20 feet from the
track. His loss of blood was so great,
recovery is impossible. It is believed
they were drunk, laid down on the track
and went to sleep, as the one who was
cut in two had blankets under his head
and his right arm across his breast. The
coroner of Yakima county took charge
of the remains.
A Strict Interpretation Plaoed on the
Alein Contract Labor Lav.
Ottawa, Oct. 25 What is looked up
on as the first retaliation measure for
the McKinley bill is the fact of the min
ister of customs having informed the
National Car Dispatch company of St.
Albans, Vt.. that car wheels cannot be
imported into Canada duty free to re
place the wheels on the company's cars
which may be broken in transit through
The effect of this decision may be to
forbid the Canadian Pacific and the
Grand Trunk railroads taking into the
United States their own laborers to re
pair such portions of the track as are
situated in northern New England.
Under a strict construction of the alien
contract labor law workmen in the em
ploy of the Dominion railroads would
not be permitted to enter the United
States for that purpose.
They have on several occasions gone
there to make repairs, and although the
attention of the United States treasury
department had been called to the fact,
the government had not intervened.
The new law may now be enforced, how
ever, and the results are anxiously
awaited by the railroad companies.
A YOUNG GIRL ELOPES.
She Chooses a Married Man Both Ar
restedThe Girl Returns Home.
Locisville, Oct. 25 William Swope,
a young married man living at New
CaBtle, abandoned his wife and child
and eloped last night with Tillie Dixon.
Tillie Dixon is 16 years old and a plump
and pretty girl, the daughter of William
Dixon, grocer at New Castle, and one of
the most prominent and highly respect
ed men in town. Swope iB connected
with the prominent Swope family of this
etute and married a daughter of a
wealthy and aristocratic family. For
some time he had been an insurance
agent and did a fair business.
When Miss Dixon was missed from
the supper table last night the family
was alarmed and quickly made search
for her. A note was found which read :
"I have gone off to marry, don't follow."
The father hastened to New Castle
where he learned his daughter had fled
with Swope. He spent all night search
ing for her. This morning they were
arrested in Shelbyville. Mr. Dixon was
notified and took home his erring daugh
ter. Swope was tried and fined, besides
getting a sentence of 23 days.
ELECTRIC WIRE VICTIM.
Narrow Escape of a Man Caught in a
Fallen Incandescent Wire.
Wilmington, Oct. 25 While returning
from work at 6 o'clock this morning,
John E. Cooke, an employe of the
W. & N. railway, tripped over a "live"
incandescent electric light wire that had
been dislodged by the storm at Franklin
street and Maryland avenue. The wire
became twisted around him and his
clothing was soon afire. Cooke tried to
extricate himself with his left hand,
which was burned to the bone. He was
unable to move but managed to scream
Several persons who tried to untwist
the wire received shocks, one man who
was using a poker being especially un
fortunate. Cooke was finally released
by the wire being handled with pieces
of wood. His condition is serious and
attending physicians fear the fingers on
his left hand will have to be amputated.
The victim was entwined in the wire for
15 minutes and his clothes were sizzling
before relief came.
A REMARKABLE' RECORD.
A Chicago Woman Has Eighteen Chil
dren in Fourteen Years.
Chicago, Oct. 25 Mrs. Jacob A. Os
terling, a German who resides at Rose
lind, a suburb of this city, gave birth to
a child yesterday making 18 offsprings of
a married life of 14 years. Mrs. Osterling
is but 33 years old and of a robust con
stitution. Her husband is a mechanic,
a man of 35. Mrs. Osterling g ave birth
to her first child 10 months after mar
riage, and then followed twins and trip
lets at appropriate intervals. She has
given birth to five pairs of twins and
had triplets once.
Of 18 children 14 are yet alive. The
four who are dead were not victims of
constitution weaknesses but went down
before ills that often cut little ones off
before their time. The physician who
attended Mrs. Osterling at this latest
birth and several previous says there is
no reason why she should not continue
to multiply. The latter, however, is not
enthusiastic in that direction.
Killed by a Falling Tree.
Mullan, Idaho, Oct. 25 Yesterday
morning four men were sent after tim
ber for the Frisco mine at Gem. Two of
the men went about 50 feet up a hill to
cut a large tree, while the other two re
mained below. When the upper tree
was ready to fall, the men below were
warned, but not in time for them to get
out of the way, Seeing the tree coming
toward thein, they started to run. The
tfee struck Gus Johnson on the head,
smashing his skull and bruising his body.
He was taken to Wallace where he died
a few minutes after being taken from
Declines to Interfere.
San Antonio, Texas, Oct. 25 Mine.
Panchez, whose house is in the City of
Mexico, has been the headquarters for
revolutionary leaders in Mexico and she
it is who aided in the escape of the much
wanted General Carbonar, who has
reached Texas. The Mexican authori
ties have applied to Colonel Bracket at
Fort Mcintosh for her arrest, but he
flatly refused to interfere. Mine, Pan

others are wanted at home for revolu
Resisting an Expedition.
London, Oct. 25 A dispatch from
Zanzibar says: "The Sultan of Vitn,
made desperate by the rejection of his
first advances, and believing that his
own part in ordering the murder of Ger
man traders has been discovered, has
determined upon an energetic resistance
to the expedition now advancing against
him. He is receiving large reinforce
ments from the Arabs."
Central America Not Quiet.
Guatemala, Oct. 25 Affairs in Cen
tral America are in a very shaky con
dition, owing to the shooting of San
Cilvadorian prisoners in the late ar by
Guatemalans. A telegram states that
Minister Mizner has gone to San Salva
dor to endeavor to arrange the matter.
A Mexican minister was asked to accom
pany him but refused.
POLITICAL SITUATION SOUTH.
The Negro a Factor in South Car
HIS SUPREMACY THERE PREDICTED.
Four or Five Thousand Department
Clerks at Washington City Going
Home to Vote.
Charleston, S. C, Oct. 25 The situ
ation in South Carolina, from a political
standpoint, is decidedly peculiar.
Everybody is talking politics and the
people are wrought up to a high pitch of
excitement. The excitement is confined
to no class nor to any particular section
of the state. It is general throughout
the whole state and affects both races.
The few days now remaining before the
general election in November bids fair to
be dayB well filled with bitterness and
The leaders of the opposition factions
are hard at work and neither side will
leave a stone unturned to insure victory.
There are manv who regret that such a
state of things lias come, but, on the
other hand, there are others who wel
come the breaking of old party lines.
All recognize the fact that the negro
vote will be used and many admit that
the negro will be the deciding factor in
the fight between the whites.
A great many bewail this recognition
of the negroes' right to vote, and declare
the result will be that in the next four
years the blacks will have control of the
state. The other side say that this is
the part of wisdom to recognize the fact
that the negro vote cannot be sup
pressed much longer, to take charge of it
now and get control of it. They say that
recognition of the negro vote is but a
question of time, and that too of a very
short time, and that if they did not use
it their opponents would use it two
years hence to keep themselves in office.
WILL GO HOME TO VOTE.
Washington City, Oct. 25 There has
been great political activity among de
partment clerks here for the past 12
months, and the probability is that four
or five thousand of them will go home to
vote at the coming November elections.
A score or more of republican associa
tions have been organized and their
mcmliers will probably go home en
masse to vote.
Never was greater activity and energy
put forth in getting every qualified voter
home for the November elections and the
exodus promises to be something unus
ual. Thousand of votes will be polled in
distant states that have not been cast
before in years, so great does this exodus
promise to be, that the railroads have
reduced the rales for one round trip to a
half fare rate to all points east of New
York and west of Chicago ; these rates
being allowed to voters holding certifi
cates of membership in Bouie State or
Maryland being close to the Capital
will probably attract the largest number
of her native sons and voters on election
day. Five hundred members of the
Maryland State Association promise to
go home and vote and probably a3 many
more Maryland Republicans not mem
bers will also go home. The New York
State Association promises to send 600,
Pennsylvania 500, Ohio 300, Virginia
500, and other States proportionately as
A CARDINAL CRITICIZED
For Placing the President on His Left
Hand at a Banquet.
Baltimore, Md., Oct. 25 Cardinal
Gibbons returned to Baltimore last
evening, when his attention was called
to the criticism of Bishop Vincent at the
convention in Brooklyn, who censured
the act of Cardinal Gibbons in placing
President Harrison on his left hand at
the Catholic university banquet in
Washington City a year ago, while he
reserved the seat of honor for a Canadian
Cardinal Gibbons said he fully recog
nized the propriety of giving the presi
dent the seat of honor at the banquet on
the occasion referred to, but Harrison
did not enter the room until near the
close of the banquet, and Cardinal
Taschereau, of Quebec, and the other
guests were already seated when the
president was ushered into the hall to
wards the close of the dinner. Cardinal
Gibbons arose and offered the president
a vacant seat beside his own.

Dutch Troops Repulsed.
Berlin, Oct. 25 News received at Am

Washington City, Oct. 25 The con
gressional central committee of the two
great parties are sending out great bun
dles of political reading matter every
day. The republican committee has
forwarded into the congressional districts
i over 15,000,000 of documents, more than

organizations are much excited over the

"CALIFORNIA ON WHEELS."
The Specimens Wonderfully Large to
Eastern Eyes New Ideas of This
Region Being Formed.
New York, Oct. 24 The free exhibit
of the products of California is the in
scription in big letters borne by three
vestibuled coaches of the Southern Pa
cific Railroad which now stand iu the
Jersey Central railway yard at Commit
nipaw. Two of the cars are filled with
products of farms and vineyards and in
the third representatives of the state
board of California have lived since last
December, when they left San Francisco
with the exhibit. Since then "Califor
nia on wheels," has been inspected by
about 1,000,000 people in 200 of the large
cities and towns of the union.
In the first car are long rows of glass
jars and cases filled with specimens from
fruit ranches of the state. There are
apples as big as ostrich eggs, apricots
three or four inches in diameter .enormous
peaches, raisins, figs, dates and plums.
There are also nut$ of more kinds than
most people ever heard of and vegetables
that would make prize squashes and po
tatoes of an eastern, county fair feel ex
The average visitor is struck with the
variety of the products of the show. If
will surprise many people to learn that
a serviceable kind of cotton is grown
and manufactured in California; that
the samples of petroleum shown in this
exhibition represent a total output only
exceeded, it is declared, by that of Penn
sylvania and Ohio, and that the culture
of silk is already thriving in that state.
The exhibition of wines and spirits
occupies nearly all of the second car.
There are too few specimens of woods
and ores. The rain which fell yesterday
afternoon did not prevent a large delega
tion from the New York retail grocers'
union from visiting the exhibition. The
California cars will be taken to lloboken
tomorrow, and after remaining there a
week will turn west again along the line

ANOTHER SEATTLE SUICIDE.!
A Carpenter Ends His Life With a
Dose of Laudanum.
DESPONDENCY CAUSED THE ACT.
The Deadly Drug Taken in a Glass of
Water in the Rear
of a Saloon.
Seattle, Oct. 25 About 3:30 yester
day afternoon Alfred Gales entered the
drug store of Kuhlmann Bros., 1518
Front street, and bought a two-ounce
vial of laudanum. Proceeding to Chris
tiana hall, a Scandinavian saloon at 1713
Front srreet, he called for a glass of beer,
which he drank. He then asked for a
glass of water and with it went alone in
to a small room in the rear of the saloon
in which was a bed. He closed the door,
laid down upon the bed and swallowed
the entire contents of the vial.
Nothing wrong was suspected till about
six o'clock, when the proprietor of the
saloon opened the door and saw Gales
lying upon the bed in the agonies of
death. Medical assistance was at once
sought and Dr. A. A. Farewell was the
first physician to arrive. A number of
others arrived soon afterwards and did
everything that medical skill could do to
save the man's life. All efforts were un
availing and at 9 o'clock Gales was dead.
Undertakers Ctosb & Co. were notified
and sent immediately for Coroner Smart.
The latter, however, was nowhere to be
found, and an hour's search failed to re
veal his whereabouts. At 10.30 the body
was taken in charge by Messrs. Cross ik
Co. nnd conveyed to the morgue to await
the arrival of the coroner this morning.
Gales is 48 years of age and a carpet
ter by trade. He came to Seattle on the
7th of last February and has been work
ing at his trade most of the time since.
His last work was on the building nd
joining the Phivnix hotel, but for the
past month he has been drinking heav
ily. His suicide is said to be due to
For some time parst he has been
moody and apparently much worried.
Night before last he was in extremely
low spirits, but stated to a friend that he
intended to brace up and be a man.
What sudden cause revoked his determi
nation is not known.
Gales is a Canadian by birth, but re
moved to Lincoln, Neb., about 14 years
ago, where he engaged in the saloon
business, but afterwards began the trade
of a carpenter. Last February he came
to Seattle with a friend named McCord,
leaving his wile and two children in Ne
braska. The wife was notified of the
sad occurrence last evening, and instruc
tions as to the disposition of the body
are expected today. The doctors pro
nounced it a clear case of suicide and the
coroner's inquest will probably reveal
THE MORMON EVIL.
It is as Offensive as Ever in its Most
Washington, Oct. 25 Ex-Delegate
Duboise, of Idaho, in an interview here
relative to the proposition for the enfran
chisement of the Mormons since their
renunciation of polygamy, says: "We
have been fighting here for six years
unitedly to take away their political
power, and just after having succeeded,
we would hardly restore it to them with
out some reason.
"We were right in contending that
they are not American citizens in any
sense of the word, nnd nothing has
transpired, of which I have heard or
read, to cause us to say we were wrong.
"All the members of the Mormon or
ganization are ruled by tho head of that
organization at Salt Lake, At command
of that head every member in Idaho, as
well as in Utah, votes with one or an
other party, for or against any candi
dates. The individual members of the
Mormon organizations do not think or
act for themselves politically. You can
not argue with them ; you cannot per
suade them ; they are not in sympathy
with our form of government; they
know nothing about it and care nothing
"That is our chief objection to them
from a political standpoint.
"I am sure that the coming legislature
in Idaho will disenfranchise thein ; I am
equally sure that Utah will never be ad
mitted to statehood so long as the state
there is completely absorbed by the
church. Generally, I would say that
the most offensive part of Mormonism,
which is the close union of church and
state, remains as offensive as ever."

The greatest improvement in
Corsets during the past twenty
years is the use of Coraline in
the place of horn or whalebone.
It is used in all of Dr. Warner's
Corsets and in no others.
a The advantages of Coraline
over horn or whalebone are that
it does not become set like
whalebone, and it is more flexi
ble and more durable.
Dr. Warner's Coraline Corsets
are made in twenty-four differ
ent styles, fitting every variety of
figures thin, medium, stout,
long waists and short waists,

important qualities were never brought
