The Congressman From the-Tenth Arrives on a Short Visit to TexaSi Ha Feels Confident of Succeeding Himself. He Talks of the Work Done in Congress--His Campaign. Hon. Walter Gresham, representative In coiiKress from the Tenth congressional dls- trlct, arrived home ywterday murning from Washington and will spend a few days here before returning to hi« duties in the liou«e. When It became known 'that Colonel Greah- «m hud arrived, visitor* and friends began to call on him. ·and from the hour of his arrival until a late hour last night he ·held an Informal levee wherever he mltflit happen to toe, und was kept busy shaking hands end exchanging greetlngB with 'friends, answering questions concerning the "·work of congress and listening: -to assurances that he was all right In the Tenth district nnd would go back to Washington for a second -term'by a handsome majority. As Colonel Cresham's handsome home at the corner of Fourteenth and Broadway is closed on accoun-L of the absence of Qlrg. Gresham from the 'city, lit- became the guest of Judge W. B. Lockhart during his short stay here, and it was at Judge Lock- liart's that a News reporter found -the congressman yesterday afternoon and sought an interview on the present political situation. Colonel Gresham was the center of quite a party of gentlemen who had called ito ,pay their respects and talk over the local situation with them, tout he received the 'News man with a smile and a pleasant greeting. He said that he knew of nothing that he could say fn -regard to the congressional situation -that had not already been said and published, but he was ready to speak of the work or thfc congress. He said that when he lirst entered upon his ·work as representative In congress from this district he was assigned to the committee on land grants and 'had but little to do, being besides not In a position to accomplish very much In the direction which lie had hoped for when 'he was elected, Iwt after a few months he was placed on the committee on 'interstate and foreign commerce, where an opportunity was offered -lo do something for Ills district and for 'the whole state, und he grasped It; work upon this committee and ujjuu uthur jiiuUers uf Lu hU constituents, the disposi-tlon of which lias been shown in reports recently published In The News, had kept him busy and furnished him -with plenty ·· to occupy his time, so that lie cotnd not yneld to -the importunities and urgent solicitations of his friends and return .to Texas to look after his re-election. 'Now, -however, these matters had been disposed of In such a way t h a t no Injury would result from his brief absence from the iiu.tiuiiul capital, and he had come home to give his attention ito some personal matters and «l«o to confer with his friends who were exceedingly 'anxious that he should. come. The river and harbor bill had been passed by the committee of three of which lie was a, member, and the Interstate commerce committee had made Its report and the committee report would be BLibmitted to Che house on Wednesday next, and other matters had been "put in shape. The committee on hHenitate commerce is an important one. and Is charged with the d u t y of framing amendments to the Interstate law with a view to devising a method of preventing dlflcrhnlnation on the paH of the railroads against," certain points. Another matter, vitally interesting a large jujmlw of iMr. Oiresham's constituents i» the sugar quest Ion. Sfivery reciprocal treaty of Interest to sugar growers has been repealed by the senate except that with Hawaii. Thn sugar -Jlelds of that country ore owned by the American sugar trust, which, If the aenatu bill hHtiuino* 8- !«»*. win ha able virtually to dictate the price of sugar Mr. Qresiwm will be in hlu place In the house whyn ihlH matter cornea up there. Another thhw the people of this district are Interested in Is the placing of bananas on the free list. This matter will also he looked after at the proper time, as will the river and harbor bill, which has already passed the house and gone to' th* senate. The question of reciprocity, with regard to the removal of the tlflty on Hour, going Into the island of Cuba, has been postponed. It will not come up In the house u n t i Mr. Gresham guts back there. In short, Mr. Gresham'» absence from Washington at this time will not militate against the- passage of any measure in which his district Is Interested in the least. The house, he said, is practically through with Its work, and Is simply waiting on the senate. He arranged all of tha-t before coming home. Questioned with regftrd to the outcome of the canvass. Mr. Greshnm expressed himself in most sanguine terms. ·He has been In communication with friends In all parts of the district and Is In a position tn knnw t h n t hi« fone?» nre !n tfoad repair. He feels secure in Ills position and haa every confluence in the judgment of his friends. But when questioned on his canvass he said: "Really, them Is nothing for me to say In regard to the local situation. T am nd- vlsed that everything Is all right, and I havo not soer. or .heard enytlilng In the IY-w hours I have been here to cause me to change my views." Then he talked about the tariff. He thinks a tariff bill will pass the senate .and pass it Boon. The fate of the senate bill In the house la not so certain. Compromise and counter-compromise will have .to be resorted to. but the measure will surely llnally pass. On the whole Mr. Gresham seemed to be pleased with the way he found things at hfmp He will take a short trip through his district and In a few days will be ready to return to Washington. Asked If he would take the s t u m p rlurinjr the campaign he said he would not, that his duties in \\ asmngion would require his entire attention, ami that to .leave- there now would endanger legislation of vital moment to his constituents. This he would not do Mr Gresham will leave to-day for the interior, but will return Jn a few days and may then have something to say His work *£. congress Is well known In his district Through The News' Washington service the public has been kept thoroughly Informed as to the work of congress whl«h trteti? lnterest to the Tenth and other dfs- Last night at the bench the congressman met a Kreat m n n y of his friends. They Indulged in pleasant little confabs and exchanged confidences. A little advice -was thrown in and a suggestion or two were thrown out. On the whole, Mr. Greshnm was the center of quite a happy little praty 0 ° f Whlch POPUUST CONVENTION.

THE COAL QUESTION, Galveston Is Secure Against a Fuel Famine for the Present The Supply That Is Now on Hand Is Sufficient to Last for at Least Sixty Days. The question of coal for fuel is becoming more and more vexed. The great strikes of tht? coal miners a'll over the country Is threatening' d'.re disorder -to the manufacturing Interests of the north, east and west. Many mills have "been forced to shut down pending on adjustment of the present difficulties. A number of railroads are on the anxious seat on account cC fuel. The situation gr^ws worse and worse. ·How thin question Is to effect Galveston Is of vast interest. A News reporter has in-ves lisa ted the matter. Queries put to the local dealers have elicted the fact that Okilvest-on is stKl happy as regards fuel. This town consumes about a hundred tons of coal a day during the summer time. (Jdnaumera are we'll provided for and un- lesa the .difference between the miners and the mine owners continue longer than sixty days there w-;Il be no trouble here. There is at least eight thousand tons of coal now on hand here. This is enough to meet all demands for at least two months. Galveston is fortunate In TjelnK a large depot for cou!. The dealers here carry large stocks and now they and their customers are reaping the benefit. A cargo of a thousand tons of coal was purchased last week "by Galveston parties at a less figure than the same coal could now te purchased for -In either Baltimore or Philadelphia. The local dealers continue to make contracts and prices have not advanced. They are selling coal right here In Galveston at less than the ruling prices in the east. As an example of -how matters are coal -which -has been floated down the Ohio from J*ittsourg for use - in the southern market Is now being towed back to that point to be used as fuel for the local factories. This is truly carrying coals to Newcastle. While Galveston has a large stock of-coal in store there Is not a pound alloat for this port. The last ship loading out for Calves ton has arrived. When another ship will come is now an uncertain question, and it wiB depend entirely upon the settlement of the prevailing trouble*/ The local dealers, however, are not taking 1 any chances, ·and are now making arrangc-menls to (?pt their tmpply from a now base. The Hantlnstan . minor, I:i th? Indian ITP!- tory. are still In operation. L/axge contracts have been made with them for Galveston account, and no trouble of a serious n a t u r e I? anticipated. The rant of G,il- veston "being a depot where large- stocks are maintained operates largely in, lier favor under the present conditions. Hut thp smaller points, which buy their supplies in .small quantities, are beginning to feel the effects of the stnke. Such pliuicd will BJOU hu-ve to hustle for tlic-lr fuel, as their present -«upp.y is exhausted. A REMARK/iBDB STORY. A New York 'special to the Sacramento Bee say*: A remarkable story, full of romance and pathos, was revealed by -the reunion of two old sweethearts who had formerly been separated, which took place In the law office of Waldorff Co. The couple were estranged fourteen years by means of forged letters written by a rival suitor for the woman's hand. The death of a -wife and husband brought the two Jovcra together ugaln. About seveji years ago Lawyer Phillips was engaged in recovering commissions for several Americans who arranged 'to sell to English capitalists a number of latve breweries In Chicago. While engaged in this case, Phillips met an lOnglishman named -James W. Marshall, In the ofllces of his .London solicitors. .Marshall then secured Phillips''JBcrv'cea to look after certain property Interests -ho possessed in this country. In the course of -their business correspondence Marshall requested h.Is lawyer to endeavor -to a«eorutUi the whereabouts and condition of John S. Giebert nnd his wife, who left Manchester, England, In 1S80, i few weeks after they were married In that city. 'Marshall furnished enough data to enable Lawyer Phillips to ascertain that the Globerts came to this dty to live, bu-t want west abotft four years ago. He flnoMy succeeded In locating Mrs, Giebert In Chicago. Her huband was dead, anxl she was ·haivlng no easy task of It, oupportlnc herself ajid a young daughter. An agent of Marshall's came to this country after -Iris lawyer -told him of -the diHCOV«ry uf Iiirw. Gkwri. Ke went to Chicago and -learned from Mrs. Gltfliort, who. It appears, was engaged to marry M'orshaJl fifteen · years ago, that her hus- be.nd--Giebert--liad confessed on his death bed that -lie had ^vronKud toer when he married her. He *alU he wrote the letter breaking olt her enffaRemen-t. which «he belie^-eU came from u\l*LrstiHil, as well as a Jetter he sent to Marshall forging Tiin .sweetheart's handwriting and 'telling: him site couW never nrsirry h-lni. Jlrs. Giebert was at one time Miss Mary Nelson, a relative of the famous Admiral Nek-iyn, C-lebert was an expert pciintuli and RO cleverly Imitated their uIITorent wrltlntfn that they had no do ulna of the authenticity of the letters received. By this ruse Glo- bert was enabled to wed Miss Nelson himself. Marshall went to Australia, He is now very wealthy and Is engaged in business.

The agents* of tlie steamer had a similar case a week ago, when the steamer had to put back under similar conditions. The coal was changed and she got away all right. Ojnsideraible criticism of the performance and pointing out of defects In the new cruiser 'Marblehead. which recently made her -trial trip has been Indulged in. The crit- i-clsni, however, are with the equipment rather than with the vessel herself. The board found fault with her search lights and recommended that their location be changHHl.

The -transfer of the llplit vessels from Trinity Shoal to South Pass is authorized by a bill reported favorably yesterday by tlie house committee on commerce. The committee makes this* recommendation upon the advice of the secretary of the treasury and the lighthouse board. The eecretary says u lightship at Trinity Shoal ir uf 1U lie tic: vk'c, bvcd.u,ie few Vctibflti navigate the waters in that vicinity, and most of them draw « little water they .can pass over the shoal In safety. (But there Is creat need for a lightship off South Pass of the Mississippi river. Vessels frequently have to anchor and wait for the foe to lift and ·the delay entails loss and seiToua expense to vessels having cargoes of fruit and other perl*habltf goodu. A lightship with a fog signal anchored off South Puss, the secretary say«, would be of Inestimable use to the shipping under such circumstances, The sUnglntr portion of President Snow's a!dr.e»9 to Hllot Keely for running the French -liner (La Champagne aground on Long Island a few days since was: "The board holds that-you should have anchored ·the ship as soon as you found the fog FO thlck'that you lost your 'bearings and failed to hear the fojr belt on Fort Lafayette 'until you fHwoxwea Just xvh^re you were, notwithstanding the undoubted fact that all concerned were anxious to reach port as flonn nn pnswl'blf*." wh*n MIP I n t t ^ r nj.jir-nr»/J before thp boaird of pilot commissioners President Snow 'further stated that as tlie owners of La Champngrne made no charge against -htm he woiim not be punished for ·the affair. A letter was read from A.
