THE GALVESTON C0LLECT0BSHIP
BETTLED AT LAST.
Senator Crowley's Pointer Did Not Create
Much Disturbance in Washington When
It Came to Making a Collector.
Washington, June 30.—[Speolal.J—The
Galveston oollectorship problem is solved.
George P. Finlay of Galveston has been ap-
pointed collector of customs at that port.
A week ago it was agreed botweon Mr. Car-
lisle and Mr. Cleveland that Mr. Finlay would
not be appointed. The man who was to get
tho place was not agreed on, but it was cer-
tain then that Mr. Finlay was out of the race.
He was all along tho most prominent can-
didate, made so by tho indorsement of both
Senators Coke and Mills. The administra-
tion was anxious to please these two gentle-
men in his appointment, but protests and
charges likewise rolled in to an extent that
prejudiced Mr. Carlisle and Mr. Cleveland
against him. The protests which counted the
most wore from Germans. Mr. Carlisle said
they were of that oharactor that they must
have their weight.
He was charged with being a prohibitionist,
and also with having run against and defeated
the regular democratic nominee for the legis-
lature last fall. His killing of a man narnsd
Jordan away back years before the war was
the basis for other protests.
Every effort was made to induce Mills and
Coke to withdraw their recommendations of
him and to name some other man. This they
steadfastly refused to do. They said they had
indorsed him and intended to stick to him
and if the president and secretary of the
treasury wanted another man they could find
Congressman Gresham was Btrongly op-
posed to the appointment of Finlay. His
choice was Mr. Wheeler, but the appointment
of him was rendered impossible because of
the positive opposition of Senator Coke. It
is said, with what truth the News man does
not know, that Gresham then advocated ex-
Congrcssman Lit Moore. When Finlay stock
went down to a quarter of a cent on the dollar
the race looked as if it were between Moore
and McDonald of Galveston.
Senator Crowley camo on here and took up
the fight for McDonald. He said he had a
tip that Finlay was out of the race.
Then Finlay came. He had no congress-
man to introduce him, but went before Car-
lisle and personally replied to the charges
against him. He made a very strong impres-
sion on that gentleman and his Btook rose. It
continued to rise. He went to see Clevolnnd
and offered to explain, as he had done to Car-
lisle. Cleveland said there was no necessity
for it, adding that very often, in his experi-
ences, charges whioh were worthy of attention
Bhrunk before a simple statement. He stated
that Carlisle had told him all he wanted to
know about bim, and he made Finlay the col-
The charges themselves contributed to Fin-
lay's success. They were so serious that he
had been injured by them, both with Carlisle
and the president. He explained them in ten
minutes and then the"! wns a revulsion of
fooling on the part of both Cleveland and
Carlisle. They seemed to feel that an injury
had been done to him and to them, too.
Mr. Crowley will leave for homo at once.
To the News reporter he said that be was
pleased with the action and that he and Mr.
Finlay had always been warm friends. He
did not say whero ho got his original pointer
that Finlay would not succeed.
Finlay will remain here a day or two to get
papers connected with the office.

cants for this collectors hip as shown on the

Extra Session Called.
Washington, June 30.—[Special.]—It is
settled at last. The special session is called
for August 7, and up to within ten minutes of
the time when Mr. Cleveland took up his pen
to make the call no man knew what ho in-
tended to do. Everybody here understood
his deep interest in the present condition of
the country. To every man who has spoken
to him for the past two weeks he has impartod
his great aniiety. From nearly every senator
and congressman who has visited him he has
extracted an opinion as to what he thought
of a special session. But while he has dono
this he has given no opinion himself as to
such session other than that it should be
called in September at the latest. The readers
of Thi News will remember that soon after
the inauguration he told Mr. Kilgora that he
would call the session for Soptember, but that
oircumstanoos might require a session earlier.
To that ho has religiously adhered ever sinco.
Last Tuesday the matter was discussed in a
cabinet meeting, and the question then was
whother or not such an emergency has arisen
as required tho assembling of congress before
Soptember. Yesterday and tho day before he
was again consulting his official household,
To-day there was a very long cabinet meeting
and the condition of the country was the
whole subject of the consultation, though in-
cidentally appointments were considered.
When the cabinet mooting adjourned the
newspaper men did all in their power to find
out what was done. Very few of the cabinet
officers would talk, but those who did talk de-
clared they did not know what would be done.
One or two, in their own opinion, saw no
particular reason why the session should be
called earlier thun Septembor, because thoy
saw no good to bo accomplished. From their
expressions tho conclusion was arrivod at that
thoy knew nothing whatever as to tho course
Mr. Cleveland would pursue.
Secretary Morton when he came out of tho
cabinet said there would be no session earlier
than September, and Lnmont made a state-
ment of a like kind. From this it seems that
Mr. Cleveland, having discussed tho matter
to a satisfactory extent with his cabinet, oou-
cludod that an emergency had arisen and
forthwith he sat down and issuod his procla-
mation, made several appointments and took
his departure for Buzzard's Bay. Thoro havo
b.en guestes on this subjoct both ways, but
the impression is that Mr. Cleveland himself
did not reach a conclusion till the very hour
in whioh he wrote the proclamation. The
argument indulged in by Mr. Cleveland and
one also which was made to him by his partic-
ular tri.udi, WW that M long as he had the
power to convene congress—which could doc-
tor the situation—and he dul not do it, so long
he was responsible. But tho moment the session
met lie was relieved and the responsibility
rested with the law makers selected by the
peoplo to do the doctoring.
Just what will be the result of the session
no one can tell. No one ever pretends to be
able to see an inch into the future. The idea
generally up here is that tho Sherman law is
the causo of the present dangerous condition.
Tliia is the theory. If tlio theory is killed
confidence may be restored, just as much as if
tho theory wore a fact.
From every appearanco tho Sherman law
will bo repealed, and unconditionally re-
pealed, if the present strain continues and the
public continues excited, .\over in the his-
tory of the government lias there been such a
force brought to bear against any measure as
against the Sherman law. This force is not
only from the east, but from every part of the
The Cabinet Meeting.
Washington, June 30.—The preaident did
not reach the executivo mansion until a few
minutes before 11 o'clook, the hour at which
tho cabinet convenes. At the cabinet meet-
ing Secretary Carlisle presented an array of
official figures bearing on the silver question
and a general interchange of views followed.
Ho gave the president tho daily cablegram
from London, showing the price of silvor
there to-day as 30% pence per ounce, equiva-
lent to $0.6t33 per ounco in our money, mak-
ing the bullion value of a silver dollar $0,573.
All the members of tho cabinet were pres-
ent except Secretary Gresham,
Secretary Carlislo and Secretary Lamont
were asked after the meeting • if any conclu-
sion had been reached as to calling congress
togother earlier than September, but they de-
clined to give any intimation that the presi-
dent had in any way ohanged his announced
intention in this matter.

A $2,000,000 .Surplus.
Washington, June 30,—Troasury officials are
deep in the mystery of figures to-day, closing
up the accounts of the government for the
fiscal year 1892-93. The figures show in round
numbers: Total receipts for tho year, $485,
000,000; expenditures, $483,000,000, leaving a
surplus of receipts above expenditures of
$2,000,000. This was the estimate submitted

The People Must Bo Believed From the
Present and Impending Danger and
Distress Due to Unwise Laws.
Washington, June 30.—Tha president left
here at 4.20 this afternoon for Buzzards Bay,
Mass. He will be absent three weeks or
more. His departure so suddenly leaves a
number of important appointments agreed
upon unsigned, and many senators and con-
gressmen who recently arrivod are in the
lurch. It is understood that the president will
transact only the most urgent public business
while at Buzzards Bay, and what official an-
nouncements aro to be made will be given out
at the executivo mansion in Washington.
At 6 this evening tho following proclama-
tion was issued:
Executive Mansion, Washington, D. C.,
June 30,1893. —Whereas, the distrust and appre-
hension concerning tho financial situation which
pervades all businoss circles has already caused
groat losses and damage to the people, and
threatens to cripple our merchants, stop the
whools of manufacture and bring distress and
privation to the farmers and withhold from our
workingmen their wage of labor; and
Whereas, the present perilous condition is
largely tho rosult of the financial policy which
the executive branch of the governmont finds
embodied in unwise laws which must be executed
until rerealed by congress.
Now, therefore, I, (Trover Cleveland, president,
in performance of my constitutional duty, do by
this proclamation declare that an extraordinary
occasion requires the convening of both houses
of congress at the capitol in this city of Washing-
ton on the 7th day of August next, at 13 o'clock
noon, to tho end that the people may be relieved
through proper legislation from tho oiesent and
imnondmg danger and distress. All those en-
titled to act as members of tne Fifty-third con-
gress are required to take notice of this procla-
mation and attend at the time and plage above
Given under my hand and seal of tho United
States, eto. Gro\er Cleveland.
The president left directions for the issu-
ance of the above proclamation before his de-
parture for Gray Gables. His determination
to call an extra session the first week iu Au-
gust instead of September was, it is under-
stood, arrived at during this morning's
cabinet session, and after giving full
weight to the numerous telegrams re-
ceived from all parts of the country
urging that course. And the consideration
which caused the president tochange his miud
was foreshadowed in a remnrk made by one
of his cabinet two days ago, that if the presi-
dent received reasonable assurances that there
vas a likelihood of the prompt repeal of the
Sherman law, he might be disposed to call
congri as earlier than announced.
Most of the cabinet have followed the presi-
dent's example and have left or are leaving
the city for brief vacations. Those who re-
main say that the president's proclamation
speaks for itself, and decline to discuss the
What Congressman Cobb Says.
St. Louis. Mo., June 30.—Congressman
Cobb, just from Washington, speaking of the
financial situation, said: "Just before I left
I had a long talk with Cleveland. Tie sub-
ject of an extra session came up. I wish to
say right here that in my opinion no man in
the oountry has a clearer view of the condi-
tion of affairs than Cleveland. He said he
was strongly in favor of an unconditional re-
peal of tho Sherman law, and would at once
call an extra session if convinced that the law
would be repealed, but he pointed out to me
tho fact that, while tho commercial
centers wore familiar with the situation
of the country, they have just begun to
di6cuss it and he wished to give the rural dis-
tricts ample time to consider the matter. The
news does not travel as rapidly in the country
as in the city. President Cleveland said if an
extra session should be called now and the
Sherman act not be regaled the damage to
the country would be incalculable. He pre-
ferred to wait until the financial situation is
fully considered. In my opinion he is in fa-
vor of allowing national banks to issue notos
to the full amount of their bonds and is in
favor of reducing their tax from 1 per cent to
half that amount.
"Cleveland brought out the point strongly
that two-thirds of the representatives came
from rural and suburban districts, and their
constituents should have an opportunity for
fully considering the situation. I am con-
vinced more strongly than ever that Cleveland
has the true interest of the people at heart,
which explains the singularly strong hold he
has always had upon them."

Room for Millions More.
The Svoboda takes for granted that there
are many of our countrymen in Texas who
know but very little about the state, our
adopted mother country. Every inhabitant
of Texas should be acquainted with the vast
territory of his state. He should know, to
some extent at least, what advantage the
Texans have over th6 citizens of other states
and countries. The Svoboda does not exag-
gerate in asserting that there is no country
under the sun equal in everything to Texas.
Our lands are just as productive as any in the
world, while the climate is mild aud healthy.
All we need is more inhabitants to convert
our virgin soil into productive farms. There
is enough room in Texas for 10.000,000 more
inhabitants. On the l6t of July f ue Galves-
ton News will publish a special issue, which
will contain much very valuable information
about Texas. The Svoboda suggests to its
readers that each ono desiring to become ac-iis
quainted with Texas procure a copy of tt«*na
special issue of The News.
The World Over.
The old roliable Galveston News, which]
has led the march of progress in Texas for'
upward of fifty-two years, is soon to issue a
mammoth edition of 100,000 copies. These
papers will circulate the entire world, and the
capital of tho effete east will be directly at-
tracted by it. If present outlooks are correct
they will havo to make it half a million.
Here’s what’s next.
