Some Speculation on the Result in
New Yokk, April 11. The Tri
bune siivb: "From the East comes
light. Little Rhode Island is large
enough to deal the free traders a
stunning Llow. The Ippe that
'Cleveland and reform' will carry
the Eastern states is burioi under a
plurality of 2070 In a sm ill state,
where the Democrats had a plurality
of 4419 in 1889. In the light of re
cent events a presidential estimate
of some yulue can bo made of this
election. The new ippolntment
gives to the South 159 electoral votes,
to the East 117, and to the West 108,
the total being 444, with l23 to elect.
The South must retain all of its own
votes, and secure 04 votes from the
North; but If the South carries New
York with SO votes, New Jersey
with 10, Connecticut with 0, and
Indiana with 15, or 07 Northern
votes in all, it will bo still in the
minority, If It loses one small South
ern state as West Virginia with 6
votes, or Florida with 4. If Con
nectlcut, New York, New Jersey,
Indiana, Iowa und Montana be
classed as questionable with their
83 electoral votes, It follows that the
Democrats might elect If they could
carry all these uud prevent a loss of
more than 18 votrs In the South, but
the chuuee thut all these- Northern
states can be carried by the Demo

New Yobic, April 11 A corres
pondent saw Jacob Shaen, asls-tiu(
appraiser of Sau Francisco. Ho is
hero to attend a meeting of local
appraisers, whloh Is to bo held next
Tuesday. When Shaen was asked
about tho trouble Iu tho custom
house In Sau Francisco he did not
seem worried, and tieated subject
very lightly. In conversation with
him, tho impression ho left on the
listener's mind was that he had no
fear of being removed. He hud Just
returned from Washington, but
while there tho subject of his dis
missal wus not mentioned to him.
"The first direct report of any
trouble In tho San Francisco custom
house," ho b lid, "reached mo today,
I received a telegram from a friend
there which stated a San Francisco
paper said I was to bo removed, aud
thut I was in Washington squaring
up my accounts. Now, I want It
understood by my friends and ene
mies ulike that I fear nothing, for
there is certainly no trouble In
my department. Tbore may bo
something wioug In others than
mine, but I don't know anything
about It, I have nothing to do
with woolens, dry goods or luces.
When 1 loft home everything was
all right. Tho reason why I am
here uow Is because I received order
from the secretary of the treasury
tocomoou mid attend the anuual
meeting of the local appraisers,
which will take lace next Tues
day. I arrived a few days earlier
to learn about some changes In
the prices of imported goods. It
Is very singular that Assistant
Treasurer Bpauldlug, with whom I
wus closeted for some time Saturday
iu his office In Washington, did not
mention the snbject of tho trouble
out there to me. Next, however, I
will say to the treasurer thut 1 situ
ready to show my books nny ilino if
be has any suspicion of wrongdoing.
I don't think there Is any cbanco of
my being removed for cause. I
don't admire my position very much,

talu John King two years ago lo
cated Dam Site and claims he has
expended in the neighborhood $-5000
improving nnd surveying the same.
Six months ago a company of
Minneapolis capitalists jumped the
claim and began a series of improve

force of twenty-five or thirty men
since that time aud have likewise
acquired title to about 50,GG0 acres
of land lying under the contem
plated reservoir. Yesterday King
ordered the party to quit work at
the point of u rille, which they did.
Tho latter insisted upon them leav

effect. The camp cook, named
Crum, returned the fire, hitting
King in botli legs. He was brought
to the city in a precarious condition
and it is thought he w ill die. Crum
is under arrest aud It is likely a bit

during hh absence from the city an

there were some things needing an

us if he wus connected with very
reprehensible matters, which had
been done in his name and without
ids knowledge. He had no connec
tion with anything irtegular, and
requesteu permission to examine
the pension fllce records and testi
mony, iu order to make a full and
complete statement. James W.
Donahue, pension clerk, testified he
had caused the arrest of Major Bar
ker, the dlr missed chief of the rec
ord division, for failure to pay bor
rowed funds and finally secured the
money, but Baikcr reduced him
from section chief to a clerk. Then
he tried to have him dismissed, and
the commissioner and Assistant Sec

Acting Secretary Chandler Interfered
and prevented it.
