was a grand success, and notwith

an unpleasant incident during the day.

Mr. Case deBlres to state that Mr.
Gearhart's deposit In his bank was not
"considerable," as at flrst reported,
only a very small amount being on the
books in the assessor's name at the
time of the suspension. His unfortu-V
nate condition, therefore, can by no
means be ascribed to that incident,
but rather to his excessive application
to the work of the assessor's office for
the past three years.

George Uhler of Philadelphia, presi
dent of the National Marine Engineers
Beneficial Association, reached the city
yesterday, and last night was received
by President Hare and a full attend
ance of members of the local branch
of the order at the lodge rooms. After
the Initiation of a candidate and the
transaction of routine business, Mr.
Uhler, who is a splendid type of the
best class of men In his profession, ex
emplified the secret work of the socie
ty and delivered a most interesting ad
dress wlilch was listened to with ear
nest attention. He spoke particularly
of his Interview with ex-Secretary of
the Treasury Foster who had declared
to him that an engineer could not be
considered as an officer of a steam
ship. This unwarrantable decision has
since been backed up by Secretary Car
lisle, but the association will bring
about the Introduction of a bill before
congress this year providing that in
future all engineers on steamboats be
termed and classed as officers. Tonight
Mr. Uhler will be present at the Joint
gathering of the engineers and the
Masters' and Pilots Association, at the
rooms of the latter. There will be some
discussion as to the standing of tne
men In the two professions, .and pleas
ant social Intercourse generally.
