OP MOEE IMPOETAtfCE THAN SEALS Are the Subjects They Will Discuss Before They Are Through—Seal Expert* Ar« Also Comparing Notes—One Important Fa«t Come* Otit'as to the Decrease of the Herds—Judge JackrtonV Decision 111 a €ivil Service Reform Case. Washington, Nov. 12.—The really important conference between representatives of the United States and Canada bgan yesterday when Secretary Slier- man and" Sir Wilfrid Laurier, premier of the Dominion, held a long pour parltr. Sherman and Laurier were together for two hours. It can be stated oar authority that the discussion was devoted to Oeneral Charles H. Grosvenor is out in a three column analytical review of the Ohio campaign, and he diverges from his main subject long enough to reiterate his well-known views on. civil service reform apropos of the Greater New York election. He says: "The battle cry of Van Wyck is a liberal political education to the people of the United Btates. H« won a victory .uanrecede**«d foi he won a victory against disloyalty of his own party, and he gave out but one little battle cry, and that thrilled through the hearts of a great body of the American people and an acho will be heard. That battle cry was, 'I will put none but Democrats into office in New York.' Party organization is the only hope of the American system of government. Factions control where party L'nee are lessened. "Personal ambitious strike fatal blows where party organization is disregarded, and the lessons of, tie recent election are lessons tending this way. We must have party organization. We must have party responsibility, and to that end we must take into the embrace of the party all its members. We mus; teach the members of the Republican party that the Republican party is responsible for the administration of the government when it is in power, and to that end we must teach the people of the United States that the instrumentalities of government, from highest to lowest, during Republican administration shall be placed in the hands of Republicans. These are lessons of 1S9T." SICK JUROR STOPS THE TRIAL. WII.FBID LACEIEH. the consideration of the many Important questions affecting the general re- ations between the United States and Canada. In such a discussion the secretary of state and the Canadian, premier found themselves in much accord. Sherman has long favored the most cordial relations between the United Staets and 'anada, having been while in the senate author of several resolutions in that direction. Laurier has been the conspicuous exponent of the same view in Canada. It \vas realized on both hands, icwever, that the discussion now opened was not one which could bring immediate results, as many of the border controversies are of long standing and many practical difficulties were in the way of settlement. The purpose, however, was tu approach the general sub- lect in a spirit of friendliness, and allow .his to develop ways and means fordeal-' ng with the numerous questions relating to both countries—namely, border immigration, reciprocity, fishery rights, the railway bonding privilege, etc. Another Spci-ial Who Was Wrong. In view of cable reports from London stating that Chamberlain, secretary of state for the colonies in the Salisbury cabinet, had expressed to Lord Aberdeen, governor general of Canada, a strong disapproval of any move by Sir Wilfrid Laurier looking- to placing the United States on the same basis as Great Britain in tariff affairs, the matter was called to the attention of the Canadian officials. In response an authoitativi; statement was made that no such disapproval had been expressed by the im-^ perial authorities, and that Lord Aberdeen had received no such notification from Chamberlain or other source, as his lordship was with members of the Laurier party up to the time they left Ottawa and no mention was made of any such disapprobation, from Imperial quarters. Second Conference on the Seals. Yesterday's seal conference began at 11 o'clock with a full representation of the British, Canadian and American experts. For the first time the statistics of the each of seals for the present year were available. These were compiled by the American officials, anil brought out prominently two features which were regarded as most important in supporting the American contention—namely, that the catch had fallen off about one-half during the present season, showing conclusively in the opinion of the American experts that the seal herd was being rapidly wiped out, and second, that the catch of seals from Behring sea off the American islands was about 15 to 1 as between the sealers under the British and American flags. The same proportion was shown to exist throughout the waters of the north Pacific. AS TO CJTTL SERVICE KEFOBM. Judce Jackson's Decision In West Tirginla —Grosvenor's Political Review- Washington. Nov. 12.—The case of Butler, Berry and Ruckman, government gaugers and storekeepers in a distillery in the "West Virginia collection district, which was tried by Judge Jackson, of the United States circuit court, and a decision reached by which Collector White is restrained from either removing or transferring them to other and subordinate positions, as was contemplated has been referred to -the solicitor of the treasury. A somewhat similar case as to the power of a collector of the internal revenue to appoint or remove his deputies was referred to the attorney general, who iias declined to express an opinion on the facts presented. Judge Jackson held in the case of the gaugers and storekeepers that they cannot be removed from their positions except for causes other' than political, in which event their removal must be made under the terms of the civil service act and the rules promulategd under it, which require that no removals shall be made excent for cause, nor until after the charges against the person sought to be removed have been presented to him and he given an opportunity for defense. The internal revenue bureau's contention is directly op- of ihe One of the Twelve In the GnM«nsr.]ipe Cane H»s Appendlclti". New York, Nov. 12.—The trial of Martin Thorn for the murder of Wi'liurn Guldensuppe, which was begun last Monday a: Long Island City, was suspended yesterday,' owing to the-dang-r- ous illness of Juror Magnus Larsen. The jury will be discharged today and a new trial ordered. Juror Larsen was taken ill Wednesday and court 'adjourned on that account. Physicians called to attend him found that he was suffering from appendicitis. At the opening of court yesterday morning it was announced that Larsen was unable to attend and an adjournment was taken until this morning. Late yesterday aiternoon an operation was successfully performed upon the sick juror, and it is expected that he will be able to leave his bed in two weeks. District Attorney Youngs last evening notified the other eleven jurors; to be present in court today, and receive their discharge, and he will ther; as-k the court to call a new jury. All evidence for the prosecution, whose case was nearly completed, will have to be introduced again, and Mrs. Nack will be required to go on the stand and tell her horrible story anew. Rev. R. H. P. Miles, to whom Mrs. Nack confessed the murder, denies tha.'! he worked on her feelings. When Mr. Miles first visited the jail Mrs. Nack sneered at religion. Last Sunday, however, she became greatly agitated while he preached, and after the sermon told him »he wanted to confess. On Tuesday Mrs. Nack sent for him. and then it was she revealed the crime in all its details. INDIANA PLAN IS A WINNER. Committee of the Presliytcrian Chnrch Adopts Autonomy in Home Missions. Indianapolis. Nov. 12.—After being in session all yesterday and until a late hour last night the special committee appointed by the last general assembly of the Presbyterian church to reform and harmonize the methods of giving to home missions agreed on a declaration of principles and unanimously adopted resolutions embodying its views. The question was whether or not the growing demand among state synods and presbyteries to be allowed to manage their own affairs without the aid of the national board should be indorsed, such being the "Indiana plan" and it prevailed unanimously. Although the committee merely voiced its principles and left it to a soib-corn- mittee to be appointed today to draft a plan the action of the committee was such as to be entirely favorable to the large element in the church that Is opposing the domination of the home board. That Unlucky Thirteen. Chicago. Nov. 12.—Miss Frances Willard, in an interview yesterday said that the National W. C. T. U. convention in Buffalo did not indorse any political party. This was a new departure, the convention having for thirteen years declared that its "prayers and sympathy •were for the Prohibition party." The non-action was a surprise to her, as she supposed, as a matter of course, the convention would pass the usual resolution. Big Four Surjj«ons in Session. Indianapolis. Nov.. 12.—The Big Four surgeons from Ohio, Indiana and Illinois held their annual meeting here yesterday. Thirty members were present. The following officers were elected: President, Dr. L. E. Russell, Springfield. O.: vice presidents—Dr. E. H. Hya-tt. Delaware. O.: Dr. C. A. White, Danville. Ind.: Dr. I. H. Miller. Pana, Ills.; secretary. Dr. T. C. Kennedy, Shelbyville, fnd". Yellow Fever in Illinois. Springfield. Ills., Nov. 12.—Dr. Egan. secretary of the state board of health, Is in receipt of a letter from Dr. C. P. Spann, of Thebes, Ills., informing "aim that the writer and another physician have in the last three weeks treated eleven suspicious cases, presenting symptoms of yellow fever. Two had black vomit. One death has resulted and •sne patient is in a critical Condition. Vational Grange Taking It Eafy. Harrisburg, Pa., Nov. 12.—The national grange gave some consideration to reports yesterday, but the public reception in the" afternoon was the feature. Last evening the degree of "Ceres" was conferred upon a large number of candidates. ______ Two Men Rescued from Drowninp. Marquette, Mich..

Marshall would not forsake the sloop, and bad to be pulled off by th* llfa-»*.viii« *T«fr. ft BIG CITY Some Principles Laid Down by! the Famous Governor of the i Wolverine State. GIVES ADVICE TO NEW YOEKEES.; Base of the Governor's Plan Is Municipal Ownership — If That Cannot Be Had. Then Control of Corporations by the People Is 3>ext Best, He Says-His Experience a» Mayor of Detroit and, So Far, &g Governor of Allchljran. New York, Nov. 12.—Governor Hazen S. Pingree, of Michigan, delivered an address last night before the Nineteenth Century club at Sherry's. His subject was "The Results of Ten Years of Municipal Progress." There was a. very large attendance at the meeting;, Sherry's ball room being filled with men and women in evening- dress. Herbert Welsh, of Philadelphia, had also been invited to talk on a similar subject. He spoke of reform in his native city and the abuses of ring rule there. President Taylor introduced the speaker of the evening, and Governor Pingree at once began to deliver his address, reading from manuscript. Kap at the Stay-at-Home Citizens. Governor Pingree said in part: "I am a little ashamed to say that ten years ago I knew but little about municipal affairs. I was like thousands of other plain business men who imagine that they are good citizens, but who not only allow, but expect, those upon whom they look down with cont-empt to furnish them with good government. They •grumble, at the results of caucuses which they do not attend, and complain of the mismanagement of those whom they take no part inselecting. I have come to believe it would be a wise law that would prohibit men from voting who have voluntarily abstained from taking part in nominations." Makes au Awful Example of Detroit The governor reviewed his connection with municipal affairs as mayor during the past seven years. Detroit's streets were mostly unpaved, but had .been given away to street car and gas companies, etc. One could not drive out of the city on any prominent streets without paying tolls; the city was less than half lighted, but at exorbitant cost; an apparently powerful paving ring existed; large tracts in the city were pay- Ing farm taxes; the street cars were wretched, uncomfortable, drawn by horses; the original railway charter, granted for thirty years and authorizing 5 cent fares without transfers, was renewed for thirty years after it had run but thirteen; most of the park grounds had been given away, and all electric wires were stretched on poles. What He Did in Eight Years. "I take some pride," continued the governor, "in saying that at the end of nearly eight years as mayor Detroit is conceded to be one of the most beautiful cities in the United States. It has its own electric lighting plant and is magnificently illuminated at. less than half the old rate; gas has been reduced at least one-third in price; there are no toll gates left within the city: conduits have been provided for wires; the old paving rings have been broken up: the horse cars have disappeared and a splendid electric system established; the old companies have been forced to sell tickets at six for a quarter, with transfers," etc. SOME THINGS HE DISCOVERED. When He Proposed Reforms He lost Many Influential Friends. But the mayor had no bed of roses during all this. Said he: "This period has been to me more like one of war than peace. I discovered after election that the railroads were paying less than their share of taxes; I said so, and the railroad support immediately left me. I discovered that the gas companies were charging exhorbitant rates; I said so, and the owners of gas stock turned their backs on me. I found the bankers speculating with city funds; I denounced the practice, and they denounced me as unsafe. I attacked the turnpike roads, and their owners called me an anarchist. Every time I attempted to correct an abuse I lose a large and influential class of supporters. I was four times elected mayor, but in each campaign was made painfully aware of the loss of old friends, although my majorities crept up from 1.500 to more than 10,000. "As to a remedy for these evils my experience has brought me to the conclusion that the streets of a city belong to the people, and no mayor or common council has a right to barter them away. The remedy against many of these evils is municipal ownership and entire abolition uf monopolies: or, if monopolies must exist which depend upon public favor, their absolute control and dependence upon the people. This remedy will not only solve many muncipal problems but will bring other agencies of commerce under proper subjection. "We are jobbing out the sovereign power of the people to speculators. My experience ia ihat those who stand foremost In the synagogue of a Sunday and are engaged the rest of the week in bribing aldermen or getting up stock-jobbing schemes to defraud the widows and orphans are the mc=t dangerous members of society. Last winter in the Michigan legislature I tried to have some legislation passed which would tax railroads as other property is taxed, and to have uniform fare? established for rich and poor alike. I failed. The railroads were too much for me. The lobbyist was there with bcodle. and others with promise of federal office, to kill the bills: but I am going to try again. How long can a government last which increases constantly the burdens of the Industrial class and gives it to those who prey upon the bone and sinew of the nation? Here in New Tork I fear that my remarks may not be well received, but I hope and believe that self-government by the people and for the people has not reached that stage which all men who love liberty hope it will vrentoally RcynJ nuke* the toad pare. POWDER Absolutely Pun •OVM. lAXlhO FOWDEB CO., PLAN OF THE STRAWBOARD TRUST. Proposes to Extend It« Trade to Gr«»» Drit&iii and the Continent. Indianapolis, Nov. 12.— The meeting of tha American Strawboard Manufactur- rs' association resulted yesterday in * plan for anting a market for the full output of the thirty-four mills in th» association by extending the trade to England and the European continent. C. W. Bell, of Cincinnati, expert agent or tlie association, will sail for Londom ' in a few days to spend the winter and interest the English manufacturer* i» American strawboard. A shut down was ordered for all the mills for one week from next Sunday. As the produciio> • of the mills in the association— which is practically the production of the country— is 1,500,000 pounds dally, and the consumption in this country is »nly one-half that amount, a surplus has been created which will be" partially ' wiped out by one week of idleness. It was decided to run all the mills when any were running and when th« over-production assumes too large an amount a shut down will take place. It • Is thought possible that another shut down of one week will take place in a. month or six weeks, though it depends upon the market. After that time it is thought the English shipments will commence. Regarding the situation Bell said: "The present association is now but one month old, having been organized in Chicago in October and includes practically all the strawboard manufacturers in the country. The price now prevailing is about J17.no per ton, which is scarcely more than 50 per cent, of what it has been in past. This price Till remain where it is. and we shall in a short time be ready to give a guaranty to manufacturers that the price will not be raised over $2 at the outside and under all circumstances." The capital.; Invested is $10,600,000 and 5,000 men are employed. _ NO PARENTAL BLESSING HERE.' Robt. T. Lincoln Declines to Approve of His Daughter's SI»rrla(re. Chicago, Nov. 12.— Robert T. Lincoln refuses to recognize a aon-in-law in the person of "Warren Beckwith, the young man from Iowa who surreptitiously entered the exclusive confines of his family circle by an elopement with his youngest daughter, Jessie. The young people went to Milwaukee and were quietly married Wednesday. Wednesday night the bride returned to her home and informed her parents of the ceremony. The result was awaited by the groom at a down town hotel. He is still waiting, with little hope of the paternal forgiveness and consequent blessing. Asked if he had seen Beckwith since the return from Milwaukee, Lincoln in- rjignantly answered in the negative. "Furthermore, I have no desire to see the gentleman," said^he angry father. -• "I shall not extend any pardon to him. according to My present ideas. Further than that I Ao not desire to discuss the affair, which is strictly a family concern. The facts in regard to the trip to Milwaukee are substantially correct a» published." _ __ Marriage IR Free In Peru. Washington, Nov. 12.— Although the Peruvian legation here has not bee» officially advised of the passage by the Peruvian congress of the bill to legalize non-Roman Catholic marriages no doubt 13 expressed at the legation that the cables to this effect are correct. The contest over this question T aas been protracted and has aroused considerable feeling in - Peru. The Itornan Catholic priesthood has fought the measure since its inception. _ College Decree for Secretary WiUon. Des Moines, la., Nov. 12.— The Iowa Agricultural college at itc annual commencement h-is conferred on Jame» Wilson, secretary of agriculture In the McKinley cabinet, the degree of master of His B«B of X Chicago.
