TO THE PEOPLE: I know by personal observation that Doctor H. A. Tucker’s medicine, popularly called “No. 59,” is potent and safe. It ought to be on the shelf in every nursery and in the satchel on every journey. Going from home I always carry some of it with me, and have administered it to many who in car or steamer have been taken sick. Better smash your brandy flask and the various styles of “Bitters,” which are Rum put up under enticing nomenclature, and take with you a bottle of Doctor Tucker’s 59 as a pocket pistol with which to shoot down physical disorders.

The transfer of Capt Watts met with general approval among the officers, who evinced the greatest satisfaction over his good luck, for such a transfer could not but be considered in the light of promotion, as it comes with a salary of $2500 per annum. Then his transfer to the Inspector’s department was looked upon as showing the confidence reposed in him by the commissioners. Gen Martin expressed his especial appreciation of the chiefs strict probity high character and honesty. The necessity of infusing new life into the “bureau of criminal investigation," as the Inspector’s department is known, was gone over by the chairman, who, however, had no fault to find with the chief. The latter had done as well os was to be expected from the conditions to improve which was the aim of the commisioners. To bring the detective system of Boston’s police department up to the highest standard was the end sought, and therefore It was the Inten Hon of the board to bring the supervision of the inspectors’ work more di rectly under a superior control, with a detective of experience at the helm Accordingly, the creation of an assistant or deputy chief Inspector had been decided on In the person of Capt Wil Ham B. Watts of the 3d division. It w’as said last evening, by some of Che stalwarts about town, that a result of the excursion would be a most minute understanding as to the policy to be pur sued In the future conduct of the department. At the same time it was hinted that the governor would seek to impress on the general the necessity of proceeding with due care, so as not to afford any political capital as against his own guberaatorial reelection In November. The Special officers detailed from divisions to the inspectors' office, all ap peared quite Jubilant over their change, they seeming to regard their luck as a sort of promotion. The liquor officers concerned, while satisfied, apparently, had but little to say. None of the captains of divisions cared to talk on the general subject, except to say that whatever construction some people might place on the action of the commissioners, they (the captains) proposed to perform their full du ties in caring for their respective dis tricts. It is expected now that Boston’s police will be more than ever a terror to evildoers. Other surprises may be expected on Gen Martin’s return from the woolly woods of Maine. CONTENTS OF TODAYS GLOBE.

BUZZARDS BAY, Aug 18-Pres Cleveland has greatly improved in health since his arrival at his summer home. Ile was up ejirly this morning, and spent the early part of the day on the veranda, in company with Dr O’Reilly and Capt Evans, who is still his guest. The president was very eager to get the morning papers, and the first oue to reach him was The Globe, the columns of which he perused carefully. This afternoon the president. Mrs Cleveland and Dr O'Reilly accepted the hospitality of Capt Evans and took a sail down the bay. The steamer went as far as Bird island light and cruised along the Marion •bore, not returning to Gray Gables until 6.30. The president is not expected to leave for the capital until Friday next. The civil service sundry bill is on its way from Washington and it is likely that the president will sign it upon the arrival of the official who has it iii his possession.

Sugar is Still a Subject for Partisan Flings. WASHINGTON, Aug 18-There was a very slack attendance of senators today while yesterday’s Journal was being read, and two motions to dispense with its reading were met with prompt objection from the republican side of the chamber. The following was taken from the calendar and passed : Senate bill to amend the act granting the right of way to the Hutchinson & Southern railroad company through the Indian territory. The resolution offered yesterday by Mr Harris, dem, Tenn, for the appointment of Mr White of California to fill the vacancy on the finance committee, was laid before the senate. Mr Manderson, rep, Neb, stated that there would be no objection, he thought, to the consideration of the resolution this morning, He wished to say for himself and some others that the stand taken yesterday meant no measure of disrespect to the senator from California. Recognizing the ability and fitness of thar senator, there had been no personal feeling whatever in the matter. But It had been thought desirable that that important vacancy should not be filled without full consideration. Mr Hill, dem, N Y, concurred In the expression of the hope that the resolution might be adopted this morning without opposition. The resolution was then agreed to without a division. The resolution offered yesterday by Mr Murphy, dem, N Y, declaring there should be no further legislation or change in revenue laws at this session was then laid before the senate Mr Gorman, de:n, Md, asked that the resolution be laid aside temporarily, as he wished to make a suggestion to the senator from New York. The resolution was complied with and Mr Gorman moved over to the seat of Mr Murphy, where the two senators had a Short conversation. In the meantime the vice president laid before the senate the resolution offered by Mr Gray, dem, Del, yesterday, in structing the finance committee to report back the free sugar bill, with an amendment providing a revenue duty on all sugars, without any differential duty on refined sugars. To that resolution a substitute was offered by Mr Manderson, rep, Neb, Instructing the committee on finance to report bask the bill leaving sugar free and reenacting the provisions of the McKinley act for a sugar bounty. A demand for a division of the question on Mr Manderson^ substitute v*as made by Mr Turpie, dem, Ind, and a long discussion followed on the parliamentary point involved In It. The vice president ruled that the vote should be taken on Mr Manderson^ amendment, and thut that was not divisible. The vote was taken and resulted, yeas 21, nays 20. As there was no quorum voting, the rollcall was called and 54 senators responded. Then Mr Gorman, dem, Md, suggested that as there was evidently no voting quorum present, the resolution be laid aside temporarily, and the suggestion was agreed to. Thereupon Mr Murphy’s resolution was again taken up, and Mr Murphy modified It so as to read: Resolved, That in the opinion of the senate the enactment of further legislation on contested matters in this session Is Impracticable; aud that congress should adjourn at the earliest possible date. The vote was taken and the resolution was agreed to, yeas 27, nays 16, as follows1 Yeas—Messrs Aldrich, Allison, Blanchard, Catter}1, Carey, Chandler, Cullen, Davis, Dolph, Galling*-!-, Gibson, Gorman, Jones, Nev, Kyle, Manderson, Mitchell, Ore, Murphy, Patton, Petter, Pettlgrove, Platt, Pugh, Quay, Roach, .Shoup, Smith, Stewart—27. Nays—Messrs Bate, Berry, Blackburn, Cockrell, Coke, Faulkner, George, Harris, Huntou, Jarvis, Lindsay, Hansom, Turpie, Vest, Vila*. White—Id. Mr Manderson, rep, I$eb, moved t# amend the resolution by adding to it, “And that the finance committee report, with all possible speed, the amount of profit to result from the tariff bill to the whisky or alcohol trust, Mr Sherman, rep, Ohio, addressed to the senate what he called a “little plain talk.” He recognized the great ability of the democratic members of the finance committee, but said that they had been guilty of three essential and fatal mistakes. The first was that they had undertaken to pass a tariff bill through the senate w ithout any conference with the finance committee as a whole. That was a fatal mistake. Another mistake was that the republican members of the conference committee had not been consulted. There had been over 600 amendments adopted In the senate, and there had been no examination of them In conference, except, perhaps, between the factions of the democratic purty. lf the republican conferees had been consulted there /would have been less discord and less contention; and so very many mistakes would not have been left in the* bill as passed. These mistakes are calculated to ’rente groat embarrassment and trouble. There had been already four or five bills introduced to amend a bill that had not yet been signed by the president Such a thing bal never occurred before, and it would not have occurred now had it not been for the manner of conducting business to which he had reference. Mr Sherman instanced the provision in the new tariff bill to allow a rebate of the tax on alcohol used In the arts, and said that the amendment had been offered In the first Instance by Mr Hoar, rep, Mass, tentatively, and only with the idea that the attention of the conference committee might be called to the question. But no feasible plan, Mr Sherman asserted, had ever been devised to carry THE CROAKERS’ QUARTET. WHERE THE REPUBLICAN CAMP IS PITCHED JUST NOW. Certain republican statesmen still are so deep in the slough of partisan despondency that they persist in singing the same dismal old tune, and cannot, or will not, chime in with the merry hum of reviving industry which is filling all the land with hope and gladness. DAY OF DISASTER. Vigilant Lost Centerboard Off the Needles. Katch Raw Had to be Declared Off, and Yacht Towed to Southampton. In tile Roads There She Fouled a Swedish Bark—Caustic British Comment. SOUTHAMPTON, Aug 18-The Vigilant was towed here today to be docked, having lost her centerboard while preparing to cross the line this morning for her match race off the Needles with Britannia, 15 miles to leeward and return, for Lord Wolverton’s cup. The Vigilant’# centerboard, w hich was held by patent gearing in the forward part of the trunk, dropped out and went to the bottom just after she passed the Needles. It is a heavy metallic plate, weighing more than a ton. The mati'h has been postponed until Vigilant gets a new centerboard. When tile boats prepared for the start there was enough wind from tile northwest for thorn to proceed from Tolland bay. tHeir anchorage, under their own sail. The Atalanta and Osborne preceded the rat ere. They were to have started from the Osborne, from which they were to have been timed at the finish. Both yachts got under way at 10.30 and passed tim Needles half an hour later. Britannia stood inshore and in Fresh Water hay, isle of Wight, just to tile east of tho Needles. 'Hie Vigilant was then standing close to tho Needles. There was an impression ob shore that the boats were preparing to start. Tins was soon dissipated. There seemed to be some misunderstanding. The Vigilant luffed up, lowered her topsail and took on lier forestaysail. Boats put out from the Osborne and Atalanta and rowed to the Vigilant and Britannia, Tile result of the visit of the club boat from the Osborne to the Britannia was that the princo of Wales’ yacht sailed back to Cowes. When the Vigilant lulled up near the Needles it was termed that lier centerboard dropped out and was lost. FOULED A SWEDISH BARK. NOT SURPRISING. Portsmouth Company’s Insolvent Condition. False Statement in Regard to Indors* Vigilant Meets With a Mishap While Beating Up Southampton Roads. SOUTHAMPTON, Aug 18-While the Vigilant was beating up Southampton water this afternoon in a strong ebb tide, she grounded below Hythe, slewed around aud was carried by the tide across the bows of a Swedish bark lying at anchor. The Vigilant’s anchor was quickly dropped, lessening her way, and all of lier crew hastened to the cross-trees to help clear the bark’s yardarms. The crew of the bark also took to tho rigging to render what help they could. The Vigilant’s sails were lowered as speedily as possible, but they narrowly escaped being pierced by the bark’s projecting soars. i’he vessels clung to each other until the steam yacht Growler towed the Vigilant free. The Growler and the steam yacht Dora afterward towed the Vigilant to the mouth of tile lichen, where she anchored for the night. The U H cruiser Chicago sent a launch to render aid while tho ve-sels were locked together. George Gould came up earlier in the afternoon aboard the Atalanta to visit the Chicago, lint had left her at the time of the accident. He returned to Cowes, passing the Vigilant some time before the accident. CALL IT A SUBTERFUGE. Englishmen Say Vigilant’s Centerboard Was Sacrificed to Avoid Racing. COWES. Aug 18—It Is impossible to deny that there is a general feeling of disgust hereat what is believed to have been a mere scheme on the (art of those sailing tim Vigilant to avoid racing. Among yachtsmen there is hardly anyone who duel not think that tho Vigilant’s centerboard was sacrificed for tile sake of appearances. The Needles tactics after the accident, the bousing of (lie topmast, the ostentatious t educt iou of sails, tho subsequent full sailing to Hputhampion, are all e.te I as evidence of bad faith on tho part of tho Goulds. Lord Wolverton’s immediate withdrawal cif tho prize shown the opinion that prevails in the Royal yacht * wad run. A resumption of tile lacing between the Britannia and tho Vigilant is extremely doubtlul.    _____ MAY It AC til IN SEPTEMBER. Continued on the Sixth Psm. Howard Gould Thinks Another Hoard Cannot be Obtained in England. COW RS. Aug 18—Howard Gould says that the Vigilant struck the ground close to the Needles, the chain of the centerboard broke ani the board sank. He blames idiot Diaper for naming the sloop aground. Diaper says that at the time he did not know the centerboard was down. Mr Gould said lie did not think the Vigilant would get another centerboard here. He thought she would race again, however, before leaving English waters, toward the end of September, ing of Notes. Affairs of Company Have Been in Bad Way for Some Time. PORTSMOUTH. Aug 18--The announcement made this morning that the Portsmouth company at South Berwick, Me, which has been engaged In the manufacture of cotton goods for the past half century, was Insolvent, did not create any great surprise hi this city, as it was generally known that the company had been in a bad way for some time, and that recently applications had been made to the IJ 8 court at Portion I to appoint a receiver. The statement, however, that William H. Rollins of this city, president of the Portsmouth company, had been guilty of irregular transactions rn regard to the indorsing of the company’s notes was a surprise, and was generally disbelieved, aa Mr Rollins’ standing in the community Is of the best and suspicion had never before been pointed in nla direction. With the view of obtaining Pres Rollins’ version of the Portsmouth company’s affairs The Globe reporter called upon him this afternoon. He was found at his office on Pleasant st, busily engaged In preparing statements as to the Portsmouth company’s affairs. When asked lf he had read the article w'hlch appeared this morning In a Boston paper as to the affairs of the company and his connection with It, he said he had, and that there were some very glaring misstatements, “In file first place,” he said, “the statement that I ever got a note of the company’s, that I had Indorsed, discounted Lu Boston or by any business man from that city who passed the summer here Is false. “A few months ago a well-known business man of Boston, who passes his summers in this vicinity, wrote me that he had some of the company’s notes in his possession, and asked as to the company’s standing. I Immediately replied that I was sorry to hear that he had the paper, and that the company was in a bad way financially. “The finances of the company were managed exclusively by the treasurer, Mr Samuel Hale of South Berwick, who followed out the example set by hie grandfather and father for a period of over DO years. “I have had no connection with the handling of the notes except to indorse for the treasurer. Within a few months I learned that they amounted to much more than I expected, as notes now appear held by persons who claim to be Innocent holders which I had been informed and had every reason to believe had been paid. "Not only have I indorsed notes for the company, but have personally advanced money as late as last January to help tide over the affairs and get the company on a sound basis once more. “In regard to the selling of the notes at high rates of Interest by Collins and Rawson to Boston parties, I have no knowledge, but from things that I have learned of late r have every reason to believe that upward of $20,000 secured by these parties never reached the company.” Bonds of the company to the amount of $150,000 have been issued. Of this amount about $100,000 Is pledged as collateral to banks who hold the outstanding notes of the company. Regarding the statement that the notes sold at    any    price,    from    TO to 50 cents on tho    dollar, .-aid Mr    Rollins, “I do not know the correctness of this statement, but treasurer Hale told me that Collins    said    that    many    of the notes were not sold, but only pledged. “Although the affaire of the company have been In a bad way for some time, I dbl not deem It insolvent until several months    ago. My    one endeavor has been to try and protect the stockholders, as several of my relatives were interested, and in so doing I arn practically ruined at this late day of my life. Mr Rollins’ operations have no connection with the Portsmouth savings bank, as reported, but were Individual. The bank is the third strongest Iii the state. and Is perfectly solvent. CURRENT TOO STRONG. Two Men in Boat Caught by Terrible Whirlpool. Frightened Occupants Jump, bot Are Held in Rushing Waters. One Drowned in Amoskeai? Flume and Other Barely Escapes. WHOLE FAMILY POISONED. Mrs Butler of Hamburg, Mich, Suspected of the Crime. DETROIT, Aug 18—A Hamburg. Mich, special, today, alleges that Mrs Julian Butler, 45 years of ago. who lives near that village, is supposed to have poisoned her father, mother, husband and be.self. all of whom are dead; Harry Whitlock, the hired man. is also dying. MANCHESTER, N If, Aug 18—A sensational drowning accident occurred at the Amonkeag gate house this after noon, in which a Swede, Andrew Hal-lln, well known among his nationality, lost his life, mid Carl Ekholm, a com panion, very nearly met death In an attempt to rescue his friend. Halliu and Ekholm entered a boat for a soil on the river. They stepped Into the craft, unloosened the rope and cast off. The current of the river as It flows beneath the gate* house nnd enters th main canal is very swift, and before the young men had gained their seats and could use their oars, the strong ourrent bore the boat to the yawning opening beneath the gate house, and through which the water pours with terrific force. Both men at once lost their heads and Hallin especially became very much frightened. Superintendent William B. Stearns, who has charge of the gate house, yelled to them ho would save them but Hallin sprang out of the boat. Hard ly was Hallin In the water when Ek holm Jumped courageously to eave him. Ekholm could swim, but the current was so powerful as this point that he could not hold his own. Just us Hallin disappeared under the gate house, Ekholm reached the stone abutment, und clinging by his fingers to the crevices in the rocks, managed to keep himself from being swept through until Mr Stearns and his as Blatant came to his rescue. They let the end of a ladder down to him, and by Its means pulled him up. The boat, sail, oars and all disappeared In the terrible whirlpool that circled under the gatehouse, and in a few seconds appeared on the south aide of the gatehouse, and bottom side up, went down the canal. The only trace of Hallin that could be seen was the unfortunate man’s hat, as it floated down the canal, but is is anticipated thut his body will be found tonight, as the water is drawn from the canal. The drowned man wassail employe of the Manchester mills, and a bright, in telligent young man. He was possessed of the best of hah its, a member of the Swedish Lutheran church, and the senior past chief templar of Monitor lodge of Good Tem plars. He has an aunt in this city and a father and mother In Sweden. HOW THE BOARD WAS HUNG. It was Rigged with Chama and Weighed 3000 Pounds, BRISTOL, It I, Aug 18-The accident which happened to the Vigilant today at the Needles is an occurrent e which seldom happens, but such a thing was possible with Vigilant. Her natural draft is 14 feet and the depth of the centerboard Is lo feet altogether, with two feet of it in the centerboard casing for leverage. When lowered down to its normal post lion ami also at its lowest point it gives the Vigilant a draft of 22 feet. Tile Vigilant’s centerboard was constructed of two tough brouze plates, between which were a number of braces about a foot apart. These were bolted together with a preparation of cement tilled into the spaces, which makes the centerboard weigh a little more than 8000 pounds. The board was rigged with chains at each end and moved no and down by a patent attachment. When the center. board was lowered it moved evenly, instead of swinging on a hinge according to the old-fashioned way. alia two feet of it wore kent in Hie casing. When not in use the centerboard rested on an iron pin, which was fitted through the forward part of the casing and this pin probably gave out. It will no doubt take three or four weeks to repair the damage and the season then will be almost over. It Is Not What We Say But what Hood's Sarsaparilla does that tells the story.

It is supposed that Little is the only living person outside the family of Jacob Crosby who knew a shot gun was kept on a rough shelf over the stalls of the horses in the barn, yet when Mr Crosby ran for this gun, after the burglars had entered the house, It was missing. The first attempt of the burglars ta enter the house was made at a window of the sleeping room of Mr and Mrs Crosby. When the burglars retreated after firing the shots which allied Henry EL Crosby, they went through the fields, where they could strike a cart path that would bring them again to the main road, some distance below the house, and thereby avoid any people who might bo going there along the main road. The burglars left nothing material bes hind them which might lead to their Identification. They took eight cents in money and % human life. The scene of the murder Is a farm oq the main road from Merrimac to Haverhill, about a mile from the center of the town. Fronting on the road, and set back less than 20 feet from the street line, is the farm house of Jacob T. Crosby. He is a prosperous farmer, well known and came from Maine IC years ago.
