CAUGHT A CURIOUS FISH. r34avy Yard Clerks Enjoy an Outing on the Iwana. The clerks and heads of departments at the navy yard had their annual outing yesterday. The U 8 tug Iwana wTas placed at their disposal by Com Fyffe, and they organized a fishing party and an excursion was made to Minot’s light. There were numerous invited guests, including a German band, and the whole party numbered about IOO. Off Minot’s light a number of lines, with "the latest improved tackle and most seductive bait, were cast overboard. Seulpin after seulpin was hauled in, aud after txnuch patient angling and continuous baiting. a cod was captured. This was followed by several more cod. and E. O. Baxter ! caught a fish of unusual appearance. One ©f the bluejackets volunteered the information that it was one of the sheep's head ©pedes. It was the largest fish caught, and weighed upv, ard of 20 pounds. Anchor was weighed about noon and a '©raise about the lower harbor was made for a few hours, during which dinner was 6«rved and the band played more music. The party arrived at the yard about 7. Bloody Riot Narrowly Averted at a Political Meeting in Lancaster. South Carolina's Governor Calls a Man a “Cowardly Hound” from the Platform. COLUMBIA, S C, June 21—The Butler-Tillman meeting at Lancaster today was stormy, and several times a bloody riot was Imminent. The crowd numbered 700, at least two-thirds of whom were Tillmanites. Butler led off. He stated that he regretted the necessity which compelled him to use harsh language at the Chester meeting yesterday. Gov Tillman, by making a personal attack, had compelled It. If Gov Tillman would confine himself to a discussion of his (Butler’s) political record, there could be no occasion for trouble. He reiterated his declaration that the charge that a corruption fund had been raised for him are false. Gov Tillman began his reply by de daring that he had not charged Senator Butler with raising a corruption fund. "If he had been a gentleman,” ex claimed the governor, "and felt aggrieved, he would have come to me privately for an explanation. He did not do that. Senator Butler did not make his charges at Chester directly. He said things by Innuendo which in Edgefield means a fight or a funeral. "I have heard things about his private life which I don’t care to mention. I believe he Is honest, knowing his connection with the Shadwlck lottery in Charleston In 1874, In which we all lost money, and yet in Chester he subjected me to more foul abuse than ever before was heaped on any man.” "Yes, and you took all," yelled a drummer. “You cowardly hound," responded the governor, "I tell you why I took It. It was because as governor of the state I would not precipitate a riot on the platform. I’ll meet you anywhere you name.” The crowd surged and pressed about the stand, and ladles in the audience left in haste. The candidates will speak at Camden tomorrow. Each has had his turn In “mustard plastering" the other, as they term It, and nobody will be surprised now if real trouble results. SKIRMISHING AT SAMOA. WANTS GLADSTONE’S SEAT. 1 Midlothian Liberals Nominate Sir Thomas Carmichael. EDINBURG, June 21—Sir Thomas David i-Gibson-Carmichael, a justice of the peace |Jor the county of Edinburg, has been • selected by the Midlothian liberals to contest at the next election the seat in parliament now occupied by Mr Gladstone, the ,«x premier having declined to stand for reselection.

Troubles Continue on the Islands, But No Serious Fighting. SYDNEY, N S W, June 21—Samoan advices to June 14 state that the British warship Curaeoa and the German warship Buzzard visited the locality of the rebel camp recently and notified the rebels that if lo chiefs and BO guus were surrendered no attack would be made upon them by the government authorities. The rebels were also informed that if they resolved to reject this proposition and to fight, they were at liberty to send their women and children on board the Curaeoa and Buzzard. After some deliberation the rebels sent IO chiefs and 50 worthless guns on board the warships, which soon after left the vicinity of the rebel camp. After the departure of the warships, the rebels reoccupied the forts which they had deserted and openly defied the government forces. Chi Sunday following the visits of the warships the rebels fired upon a village where chief Malietoa was supposed to be attending a religious service and advanced upon the village itself. The rebels, however, were repulsed by the government with slight loss on both sides. It was evidently the intention of the rebels in attacking the village to make an attempt to kill chief Malietoa, but he was absent at the time. When these dispatches left Samoa, skirmishes were taking place between the rebels and the government forces, but there had been no severe righting. Lynn Man Wanders from Home. Yesterday afternoon the Revere police discovered a man lying on the ground in a field in the rear of Foster’s brick yard on Broadway. He was taken to the station aud found to be mildly insane.

Lesees in Dark as to Their Motive. Controlling Company to Make Legal Defense. Stock Market Quotations and News Stopped. New Feature of the Moral Wave Sweeping Boston. You want more business. Everybody does. The best way to get it is by advertising in Tile Mirror asp Farmer. Manchester, N. ti.. the leading family, farming and horse paper in New England. Rochester Brewing Co’s popular "Stand ard” beer in bottles at the pops." Boston’s moral wave is nearing high water mark. The police, who have been scouring the dark places of the town for three weeks, have the task first allotted them well under way, and are now casting about for new worlds to conquer. The latest evidence of official activity is an order sent out from headquarters, which is to the effect that all stock and news tickers must be removed from hotels and restaurants. Keepers of those places, as well as the Stock Quotation Telegraph company, are wondering at It all. The first heard of the order was when the officers of station 2, acting under orders of Capt Pierce, called at all the saloons and hotels In the district that used the tickers and notified the proprietors that the tickers must be removed at once. Those who remonstrat ed and asked questions were simply told that that was the order, and that was all the officers knew about It. Capt Pierce was uncommunicative on the subject. He didn’t wish to discuss It. It is known, however, that he sent for the manager of the Stock Quotation Telegraph company the other night and discussed with him the question as to whether the ticker was not a device for gambling. How people could gamble with a ticker was not clear to D. J. Ahern, the manager, and the courts will no doubt be asked to decide the question. The first thought of the removal of these machines originated with the po lice commissioners. The Stock Quotation telegraph com pany expended over $10,000 to get ready for business In Boston. The matter furnished on their ticker tape consists of European cables of foreign markets and exchanges, giving the current rates of exchange, foreign and domestic prices of money loans, and the tone of the foreign coffee, cotton and other markets. It also gives the bank statement, clearing house statement, railroad earnings, horse racing, baseball, yachting and other sporting events of Interest to the up-to-date American citizen. During elections the ticker records the downfall of aspiring politicians, the defeat of good or indifferent measures, and the names of those fortunate enough to land in office. It also inks out in good, big English the current news, tells what is going on in Washington, whether or not Pef-fer’s whiskers happen to be oscillated by the passing breezes and all about the sugar trust. A reporter yesterday went over the ground covered by districts 2 and 4, where over 60 tickers have been In operation. Finding one that had not yet been cut out, the lessee not having been notified, the reporter began to read. The first item on the tape was dated Washington, and read like this: “Amount of free gold held by the treasury $68,423,623, against $68,434,443 yesterday.” Not perceiving any chance to gamble with Uncle Sam’s wealth, the reporter pulled the tape along between his finger and thumb and read on. The next Item was dated New York, and told how the North American’s annual report was to be Issued, and that the company had partially extricated itself from its old entanglements. The next Item was all the way from Chicago, and sounded mournful. It read: "Mercury 95° above; cloudy; wind west." Looking for opportunity to turn a dollar by dallying with chance, was discouraging. Even if an item should come out of the cogs that Xabochlish by Smithereens out of Soccalexls was dead sure to win the Derby, how could a cent be gambled on the result in the place where the ticker was? Something whispered: "Run to the place where they sell pools.” "And does that make the ticker a device for gambling?" asked the reporter. "That's what the police say,” said that something. "Then,” asked the reporter,"why Isn't a telegraph or a telephone apparatus, that tells the same things, devices for gambling?” That something scratched Its head reflectively, and was silent. The ticker was busy, clicking fitfully and turning out the events of the day at the rate of 80 words to the minute. Grasping the tape again the reporter read on. The next Item had come all the way from London under the yeasty waves, and was to the effect that money at 12.30 o’clock was at one-half percent rate of discount In the open market. Further along on the tape was another item from Chicago. It gave the receipts on hogs, and spoke of the outlook for Texan cattle. Following thts was the announcement that the steamer Sophie had arrived in New York. Then followed items on corn and wheat, and quotations on some gilt edge stocks. Another item with a New York date said that whisky had been attacked by Cammack, but failed to say who got the best of the scrap.    1 The reporter visited several places where the machines were rented, and proprietors considered the order arbitrary, and did not know why the machines were ordered out. Most of the hotels In the two districts were without them, as the keepers of these places dislike anything that will attract or keep a crowd of men standing about In the corridors or bar. In several saloons the proprietors had sent requests to the company to have the machines taken out, as the police objected to them. The manager of the company, whose office is In the Equitable building, was dumbfounded when informed of the action of the police. “Such an order,” said Mr Ahern, "would ruin our business. I do not care to say much about the matter now. I have employed counsel, and the court will decide whether or not news and stock tickers are devices for gambling." One of the prominent brokers of State st, who depends a great deal on the ticker for financial use, was asked if he ever heard of the machine being classed with implements or devices for gambling. He asked: "How about the stock exchange, and the offices of brokers and bankers?” The reporter was unable to answer the question. At the Tremont house the patrolman who gave notice to remove the ticker, which Is connected with a brokerage office doing business in the hotel, was told that the ticker would not be removed until specific directions from the station house had been received.

TAN SHOES Are Quite the Thing for Summer Wear. Ocr $3, $4 & $5 lines FOR MEN Cannot Be Equalled. Meigs Bill the Text ot Angry Senators. Cronan Defends the House Action. Kittredge Argues on Legal Points. Faults of the Measure Fully Exposed. Fitzgerald Explains Why Changed His Views. He Senate Adjourns Before Debate Ends. House Clears Its Calendar All Business. of When the senate adjourned at 5 o’clock yesterday afternoon the fight on the amendments offered to the bill to incorporate the Boston elevated railway company (Meigs system) was fairly under way. Mr Cronan of Suffolk, who led off in favor of the bill, had spoken for nearly two hours, and the time remaining was taken up wholly by Senators Kittredge and Fitzgerald, also of Suffolk. The latter, at the time of adjournment, was in the midst of a fiery argument In favor of the bill. It was an argument which bristled and blazed with personalities, so marked and pointed as to make his hearers lose sight, almost, for a time, of the main issue, In view of the individual encounter. Twice had Mr Kittredge, the senator attacked, attempted an Interruption by rising, at first to an explanation, and again to a question of privilege, and finally Pres Butler himself Interposed with a mild reprimand, but the declaration had been made, and there, with ex pectatlon at fever heat, the senate adjourned. I 35 BOYLSTON ST., Between Washington and Tremont Streets. F. E. LOVEJOY, Manager. Before the speechinaking began an avalanche of amendments had poured In to the clerk, and were offered In due form, the principal of which follow: By Mr Kittredge of Suffolk—Upon the filing of a petition to the superior court, In any county, by any person, under the provisions of this section, said court shall, if requested by the petitioners, re quire said company to furnish security satisfactory to said court for the payment of all damages and costs which may be awarded to said petitioner; and all the rights of said corporation to construct, use or operate a road upon or In front of the premises of said petitioner shall be suspended until It furnishes the security required. That no bonds shall be issued in ex cess of the capital stock actually paid in. That the company shall not sell or dispose of its bonds for less than par value. Require the permission of the mayor and aldermen in cities and selectmen In towns for the establishment of locations. To strike out the provisions for stations In Adams sq and Scollay sq, and an elevated passageway In Brattle st By Mr Durant of Middlesex—That the corporation shall pay the expense of re building or repair of bridges or highways rendered necessary by the railway. By Mr Banger of Suffolk—Providing that bonds may not be issued for debts due to any person or corporation contracted prior to the passage of the act. That the road shall not run on Tre mont st between Tremont row and Beacon Bt. That damages to property taken under right of eminent domain shall be a first lien upon the corporation’s property and franchise. By Mr Burnham of Suffolk—That the company shall pay an annual license of $1000 for every mile of single track laid through the streets of this city, and an annual tax of $600 for each mile of track laid in other cities and towns. By Mr Gray of Norfolk—That In towns in which It Is proposed to operate the road, locations shall be determined upon by the voters at a town meeting, and not by a majority of boards of selectmen. By Mr Bessom of Essex—Strike out of the damage clause all reference to benefits which it Is alleged will accrue to estates In consequence of the building of the road. By Mr Merrill of Norfolk—A line from Fields Corner to Neponset bridge. By Mr Frothlngham of Essex—Prohibiting the company from using the Manhattan system in operation in New York. By Mr Swallow of Suffolk—That the proposed act shall not become operative until accepted by the voters of Boston at a special or regular election. That locations must be approved by the mayor and a majority of aldermen. By Mr Blanchard of Suffolk—That the mayor and aldermen of cities and selectmen of towns may Impose conditions of location, Including compensation for use of streets, and that grants of location may be revoked after 20 years and structure removed. That the routes shall be definitely fixed within six months after the passage of the act. That all locations shall be revoked upon application of a city or a town In case of failure to make the deposit required In section 12 within the time specified. Mr Cronan of Suffolk, In speaknlg to these amendments,said that for 14 years Boston has suffered the Inconveniences of an inadequate system of transit, and during all that time there has been an agitation for improved facilities. As a result of this agitation there Is a conviction In the minds of the people that only an elevated railroad can solve the problem. This Is undeniable. As to how it should be constructed, there are but two conclusions: It must either be built by the municipality or by private capital. At this period It would be unwise to commit the city to any such a principle. The objections to municipal control of the road weigh against It with such force that the plan Is generally regarded as unsafe and unsound. He continued: "It Is conceded by all that the bill before the senate will solve the question, the only difference being upon the construction of certain sections of the measure. "The sole objection lies In the alleged fact that the property owners along the route of the proposed road are not protected against damages which may result to their estates. "As a representative of the people, and guarding solely their Interests, he was prepared to say that the rights of property owners were secured under the bin. Mr Cronan yielding, Mr Monk of Plymouth offered an amendment to so change the bill that the incorporation may only construct a road on the Meigs system, instead of giving thorn tho right to use any system. Resuming, Mr Cronan charged that the wealthy classes had employed counsel to come to the state house to obstruct tho passage of the bill and frustrate tho will of the people. Mr Kittredge asked lf the franchise of the company was mortgaged for $20,000,000, with only $10.000.000capital.and the mortgage foreclosed, what there was to secure property owners for damages which they may sustain. Mr Cronan answered that lf the road became defunct, property owners could petition to have the road declared a nuisance, and it could then he removed or destroyed. Mr Kittredge maintained that the New York & New England railroad, though mortgages on tho system were closed, was running under receivers, and wanted to know why It would not be possible for the proposed road to be operated In the same manner, Mr Cronan read from the statutes and the bill to prove that by a distress warrant property owners could secure compensation. The equity powers of the court could be invoked and rid tho public streets of a nuisance if such it should be declared to be. Mr Kittredge then inquired out of what property would the warrant of distress be satisfied fa case of the foreclosure of the first mortgage of $20,000,000 issued on $10,000,000 of stock. Mr Cronan said that even under that assumption property owners still have resort to tho courts, which have the power to say that if the judgment is not paid the road shall be destroyed. Mr Kittredge asked lf this did not apply to an Injunction upon the company and not upon the structure which causes the damage. Mr Cronan said that if at the expiration of 30 days any judgment wa* not paid, the rights granted the company would be roil dared null, and a suspension of the road would result. Mr Milton of Middlesex desired to know where in the bill there was anything to indicate that locations in the city of Boston would be fixed within any specified time, since, under the provisions of the bill, the company must agree to all locations. Mr Cronan replied that location must be established within two years and six months. To this Mr Milton replied that the time dated from the ai plication of tho road for a location, and the road might never make an application. Mr Sanger of Suffolk asked lf, under the terms of the bill, the company could not delay building the road 25 years. Mr Cronan’s answer was that the company would not dare to do such a thing. Mr Kittredge followed Mr Cronan, and said that he proposed to discuss the question fairly, and it seemed to him that tho bill could be so amended as to reflect credit on the legislature—amendments which would protect and not rob the people. He represented a district more interested than any other district—a district contain lug ever 75 percent of the growth of tho city during the past years. He had represented that district for five years, during which time he gave much of the best of his Ufo to a consideration of the transit problem. He had a1 ways wanted an elevated rail road, and he wanted It today, but he wanted a bill in which the rights of all citizens were secured and protected. The people wanted rapid transit, and ho would not dare to oppose it. He had no change of heart, no great light out of the heavens had converted him. He did not go to Chicago with the rapid transit committee and write to the mayor of Boston, as did one senator, to inform him (the mayor) that lf he would refrain from appointing assistant assessors in his ward that he (the senator) would boom the sub way. "The bill before the senate Is not an honest one," he continued, "It does riot contain one element of rapid transit, but is purely a speculative scheme, calculated to enrich a few men, who desire to flood the market with worthless stock. "They were Insincere, as was shown in tho amendment which authorizes the incorporation to uso any system In constructing the road. This they allowed, and it was a stab in the heart of Mr Meigs, who had laid his head upon their breast." He denounced the bill as drawn primarily for the purpose of extorting money from Boston people. Its very wording shows this to be true. Referring to the incorporators of the proposed road, Mr Kittredge dwelt upon their respective financial ability, declaring that they were not men of that character and financial standing in whom one would re pose so great a trust as that which is involved in the bill. He did not stigmatize any of the gentlemen named in the measure, but laid especial emphasis on their apparent inability to carry out arid consummate so stupen dous an enterprise. In its present form the bill is dishonest to the people, dishonest to the city, dishonest to the people who may purchase stock and dishonest to the rapid transit. It is not only a novelty, but it is a monstrosity in legislature. He affirmed that the republican party my cum. Harvard Men Puzzled by His Curves. Only Four Hits Made in Nine Innings.

AT to S4 North Market Street, Boston, The Yale and Harvard baseball nine* met on Holmes field, Cambridge, yesterday afternoon, for the first time thia season, and the Yale men left the field victorious by the score of 5 runs to I. Harvard was badly defeated, and deserved to be, for the visitors outplayed the home team at every point. The game was slow and tedious, and even the most enthusiastic undergraduate found difficulty in arousing enthusiasm In himself or his neighbors. The Harvard supporters were massed back of third base, and did more or less cheering during the afternoon, but there were so few chances for Harvard cheers that the men did not become very hoarse. Yale was represented by a small group near first base. The victory of the Yale nine was due almost entirely to the-«plend;d pitching of Carter, who was evidently "on his muscle," and determined to give a good account of himself. Harvard made only four hits, and these were scattered through the nine Innings. It was the poorest batting the home team has done for many a day, and IO men struck out Numerous others had two Continued on the Second Page.

The love of the shapes and forms of a century ago has been but half satisfied by the rickety old furniture in the second-hand shops. It delights the eye, but cannot be commonly used on account of its decrepitude. This year we have made some perfect reproductions of the more famous Colonial pieces, accurately preserving their every detail, even to the antique coloring of the wood. Here, for example, are some old flag-bottomed dining chairs, which not only delight the eye, but they can be used by the present generation. They are more comfortable than any modern frames, and the cost is about half the price charged for rickety “antiques.” There can be no pride or sentiment surely in the ownership of the antiquated furniture of some-one-eLse’s family. Its only value is its historic shape, and this is far better reflected in our exact copies of famous originals. And at half the cost! 'He’s Mitre Co. 48 CANAL ST. I HS.AimiuSff8 ;
