sition on the part of the naval department
officials to expedite the proposed transfer
.■ the naval station from Port Royal, S.
C„ to Charleston.
With that object in view, a special
meeting of the naval board, detailed to
advise the Secretary of the Navy as to
the advisability of the proposed transfer,
was h id at the navy department to-day
for the purpose of granting a special
hearing to Mayor J. Adger Smythe on
the subject of the various sites for the
n , w station at Charleston. Only four of
the seven raeinb rs ot the board were
pres nt.Rear Admiral Rodgers, chairman;
Comma and r Lutze, Lieutenant Command
ed Staunton, and Capt. Converse. Rear
Admiral Sumner. Civil Engineer Andar
ao i and Naval Constructor Linr.ard are
away on leave of absence.
Mayor Smyttae presented to the board
maps and special surveys of six desirable
sites located on the Cooper river, in
Charleston harbor. He explained the facil
ities offered by the various sites for the
establishment of a first-class naval sta
tion capable of meeting a’.l the require
ments of the government. He also sub
mitted options on the various sites all be
low the figure stipulated by Congress for
the expenditure for a site.
Mayor iSmythe also submitted estimates
for what is known as the Drum Island
property, also located on the Cooper riv
er, which attracted the attention of the
board and seemed to create a very favor

At the same time Mayor Smythe present

The members of the board questioned
Mayor Smythe closely concerning the ob
jections raised by the citizens of Port
Royal, against the removal of the pres
ent station from that place. Mayor
Smythe submitted a carefully prepared
reply, which purported to meet fully the
objections raised by the Port Royal peo
ple. The reply, which was prepared by
Col. J. H. Averill, was submitted in the
names of business men of Charleston,
charged with the matter of the dry dock
and naval station, composed of William
H. Welch, chairman, J. Adger Smythe,
A J. C. Hemphill, Samuel Lapham, J.
M. Seignious and W. B. Wilson.
The members of the board appeared
to be very favorably impressed with the
comprehensive and frank statements of
Mayor Smythe, although they failed to
indicate what their final decision may be.
Mayor Smythe says he was highly pleased
hv the manner in which his statements
were received, and he is quite confident
of a favorable report in behalf of the
transfer to Charleston. He says he is
quite confident that the site selected will
probably be one of those located on. the

of the public-spirited citizens of that city
are working harmoniously together for
the common benefit of Charleston.

RAID ON THE BUCKET SHOPS.
Chicago Police Made a Wholesale
Raid and Arrested Nearly 400
Owners and Customers.
Chicago, July 31.—Nearly 400 persona,
many of whom have never seen ihe inside
of a police station before, were captured
to-day in a wholesale raid on alleged
bucket-shops located in the down-town
district, and carted oft to the police sta
A dozen firms, some of them connected
with the Board of Trade, were visited by
the police. The raid was so perfectly
p.anned that hardly a person succeeded in
escaping. Conducted at the busiest hour
of the day on ’Change, it created consid
erable excitment. Brokers on the Board
of Trade practically abandoned business
tor the time to watch with interest the
police Q 9 they gathered in their prisoners
| in the adjacent buildings.
I One prisoner, whose name was not
; learned, attempted to end his life rather
than face the humiliation of arrest, lie
tried to strangle himself with a towel,
but was discovered and bundled imo the
patrol. A panic ensued in the rooms of
E. A. Weirsching & Cos. when the police
appeared, and several persons were tram
pled on in the mad rush to escape.
Chief of Polide Kipley said to-day that
to-day’s action by the police was but the
beginning of a series of raids, which/ it
j is said, will continue until every alleged
bucket shop in Chicago 6haJl be driven
out of existence.
Jn nearly every instance the telephone
and ticker service were cut and rendered
useless. The books and paraphernalia

Col. LlvingMton Expect* a Good Dc'in
Washington, July 31.—Representative
Lon Livingston of, Georgia, the leading
Democratic member on the Committee on
Appropriations, has been here for several
days in consultation with the members
of the Democratic Congressional Commit
Prior to the meeting of the Kansas City
Convention, Col. Livingston expressed
considerable alarm for fear his party
would make some political blunder which
might injure the prospects of the Demo
crats gaining control of the next House of
Representatives. Whatever doubts he
may have entertained on the subject prior
to the convention seem to have been dis
pelled by such information and encour
agement as he gleaned at Democratic
headquarters. He predicts that the Dem
ocrats will make substantial gains all
through the West and Middle West, and
unless some unforeseen accident occurs,
the Democrats will probably upset the
slim majority which the Republicans now
have in the House and select a Demo
cratic Speaker in the next Congress.
Many of the old Republican war horses
in close districts have been retired from
service and new and untried men are to
be put forward for election next Novem
ber. The Democrats in these districts
intend (o nominate their strongest, clean
est and best men, and they are confident
that many of the new doubtful districts
will return Democratic representatives.
The work of the Congressional Commit
tee is progressing very satisfactorily, ad
the committee is no't hampered by the
want of funds and other substantial cam
paign material. Altogether, Col. Living
ston takes a very hopeful view" of the sit
uation and looks for Democratic success
for the presidential as well as congres
sional ticket in November.

MINERS IN ALASKA ARE SECURE IN
Temporary Boundary Line Agreed
on Will Not Affect tlic Property
Rights Either of Uittsen* of United
State* or Canadian*—United State*
Gain* More Territory Under the
Temporary Arrangement Than
Doe* ( anndii.
Washington. July 31—None of the pro
tests report'd to have been made in Alas
ka against the definition of the provision
al boundary line has reachtd Washington
yet, and the Impression prevails in the
state department that the agPation of
(hat subject is based up n a lack of
knowledge of the exact nature of the
agreement effected between the United
States and Great Britain by which a most
difficult and dangerous subject was re
moved from the current negotiations be
tween the two countries.
It is pointed out by the state depart
ment that this provisional boundary line,
the running of which is said to have ex
cited the American miners in ihe Porcu
pine region, is not in any sense binding
upon either party to the modus vivendi,
except as a purely t< mporary scheme,
designed to prevent hostile conflicts be
tween the miners and ihe police forces,
through lack of knowledge as to their
rights. The purpose of the arrangement,
as to that, Is fully disclosed by the in
clusion In tin* modus vivendi of a pro
vision in these terms:
They Will Not Suffer.
“It is understood, as formally set forth
in communications of the department of
state of the United States, that the citi
zens or subjects of either Power found by
this aißangement within the temporary
jurisdiction ot’ the other, shall suffer no
discrimination of the rights and privlllgea
which they can now enjoy.”
Every American miner, whose claim lies
on the wrong side ot the boundary line r.Ow
being drawn is. according to the official
view here, holding his claim by quite as
sound a tenure as he enjoyed before the
provisional treaty was made. He has
neither lost nor gained in strength of title
by this arrangement, so he certainly has
no cause for complaint, as he would have
were the boundary line now being drawn
a permanent one. The officials here, how
ever, are fully prepared to defend the tem
porary boundary, pointing out that so far
front having ceded to Great Britain an
inch of territory. Great Britain tempora
rily yielded to the United States nineteen
twentieths of the territory in dispute, and
suffered her shipping to be kept ten miles
from the boundary line at the nearest
point, notwithstanding the Canadian am
bition to got a port on the Lynn canal.
GREELY STARTS FOR ALASKA.

Washington, July 31.—Gen. Greely, chief
signal officer, left to-day for Alaska to
superintend arrangements for cable ond
telegraphic communication with that ter
ritory. It is quite likely that he will make
arrangements with the Canadian company
for the transmission, of messages until a
direct line with Alaska Is established. The
last session of Congress appropriated $420,-
