It Is over. The fight Is ended. The

Juay went to Senator Gorman and out
lined to him the agreement which had
been arrived nt by tho Itcpuhllcan Sen.
ators In their Thursday night confer
ence. Mr. Gorman said he thought
that would bo ncccptablo to his party
colleagues. IIo agreed to ascertain
their views nnd communicate them to
the Kcystono statesman, who has for
Eome days held the key to the situation.
The itepubllcan conference simply
agreed to closo general debate on the
Tariff bill on August 80, to proceed
under tho flvo-intnutc rulo until Sep

agreement proposed by tho Republicans

ble to tho Democrats. Tho rules re
main unchanged; tho Force bill goes
over, and they have had and will have
n fairly reasonable time In which to

be followed with reference to the latter
Is simply that which has always ob

by unanimous confout.
Like Blenheim, It Is a famous victory
for Marlborough Stanley Quay.
IT i Two papers were yesterday circulated

f'A signatures. One was carried about bv
Mdccq Spooner. The other by Mr.

As lo the other method, It has oc
curred to some of the Senators that It
would be a very undignified proceed
ing for .them to sign any such pledge
as to their future action with a view to
its publication to convince their con
stituents that they (the signatory Sen
ators) are bonestlv ami earnestly In
favor of the Force bill.
What they will do with the ptrw.
now tt ts signed, will probably have to
be decided in another conference.
This solution of what promised to lie
a prolonged deadlock, by permitting
the passage of the Tariff bill In tho near
future, will prevent the financial strin
gency with which the country la now
aflllctcd from developing Into a panic
of the proportions of that of 187JI. It
will not ttop the transfer of monpy to
Europe for goods bought In anticipa
tion of a rise caused by tho Tariff bill.
Conscfptcntly tho Treasury will havo
to do moro than buy $ 80,000.000 of ll
per cent, bonds at a premium. This
order had the effect to relievo tho money
market yesterday, nnd money on call
fell from nearly 300 per cent, on Thurs
day to 0.
Hut tho effects of this financial strin
gency is not confined to New York or
other money contcrs. It Is widespread.
Tho demand for money to movo crops
Is great. This money Is largely distri
buted by small banks In tho interior.
Thcto have had for some llttlo tlmo now
to pay 8 and 10 per cent, on call loans
to meet overdrafts on their Now York
correspondents. Money thus obtained,
they aro compelled to lend nt 0 per
cent., thus losing 3 to 't per cent.
They will not, Indeed they cannot,
stand this long. They will be obliged
to laise their rates of Interest or refuso
to lend money. Then hard times will
set In In very onrnot. The longer the
passage of the McKlnley bill Is post
poned the worse It will be. Tbe situa
tion will probatilv, u nleas fully relieved,
be at Its word In Oclobor. This will
set golnir a tidal wave which will strand

Hint the Secretary 's call for 9O,O00,0OO
will probably result In offers aggre

next ilxly days.
Kven with all the help the Treasury
can afford It will be about four months
beforo tho financial situation will settle
down to lis normal condition and money
be "easy." The whole trouble has
been caused by the agitation of the
Tariff quostlon and the lone; delay In
the passage of the Tariff bill, since It

said Mrs. O'Nell to the reporter, "I

me to call nt the Capitol and to send for

that I could not see Mr. Mason, as he
was on tho floor delivering a speech.
"Captain Albaugh came up and took

V.., Aug. 38. There was unacted Iti
this town yesterday afternoon a tragic
sequel to the exciting contest made last
fall for the Governorship of Virginia,
made memorable by tho lnllammatory
speeches delhered by General Mahone
and his followers, and the bitter feeling
engendered among the negroes and
Ignorant whites, who looked upon Ma
hone as their political Moses, a feeling
that culminated In the destruction by
tiro of the greater portion of this place.
For this ci fine George Karly aud Illrd
Woods were hanged, ami the same

Both men made short talks, but
neither confessed. Woods said hU own

to the gallows, but he was Innocent.
Karly talked five minutes, aud said he
had lied on tbe trial, but bad beeu for
given. Neither man's neck was broken,
and tbe bodies wore turned over to
f i lends for burial.
There had been ominous rumors of an
attempt on ibe part of the negroes to
prevent the execution of the coademued,
but tbe authorities were on the alert ami
had the jail guarded by soldiers, who
were also on duty at the scaffold. An
immense crowd gathered to witness the
execution, but contrary to expectation

Tmrbr Hauth, Ind,. Aug. 98.
Twelve substantial - looking, well
dressed men mounted the steps to the
first floor of the Torre Haute Iloim at
0 60 o'clock this morning and pawed
In single file into the spacious club
room that is designated ns No. 03.
When the last man had entered the
eleven ranged themselves around a
big table at tho farther end of the
apartment, while the twelfth locked
tho door from tho inside. Then tho
sharp rap of n gavel upon the oaken
table was heard, nnd the listeners In the
corridor knew that the special session
of the Supreme Council of tho Federa
tion of llallroad 1'mployca. and who
will dectdo whether or not tlmtorsanl
7atlon shall extend Its support to the
Knights of Labor by declaring n general
strlko upon the New York Central
road, had been formally called to order.
The participants In the gathorlng are:
Grand Master Sargent, who presides;
Grand Secretary Debs, who olllclntos as
secretary, and .1. J. Hannahan of Chi

Switchmen's Mutual Aid Association,
aril Grand Master Morrltcy. S G Wll

of Galeshurg aud representing the
Utothirhood of llallroad Trainmen.
Sweeney was the last of the council
to arrive, and It was nearly !i o'clock
this morning when he placed hli auto
graph on the register of the hotel. The
chief of the switchmen, who has at
tracted no little attention as a result of
his utterances In
ori'oeiTiox to a hthikk,
did not appear to be In the most amiable
of moods, aud quickly sought his room.
He was one of the tlrst, however, to ap
pear in the dining room this morning,
and penned with evident relish a New
York press dispatch in a morning pa
per, which represented that Sweeney's
attitude had beeu pretty severely crltl
d(d by the heads of the Knights of
Labor. It was noticed that the other
delegates, as they meandered by one and
twos Into the dining room, hail little to
say to the switchman, the majority con
tenting themselves w lilt a nod or a word
Nine o'clock was the time set for the
opeelug of the Supreme Council, but at
that hour the representatives of the con
ductors had not put In an appearance,
and the delegates grouited themselves
on the sidewalk outside of the hotel and
told stories, laughed, and Joked, ami
talked about everything except the Im

Nkw Yoiik, Aug. 33. A special to
the HemM from Washington says that
a question of great Importance at this
time has been raised In connection with
the strike of the K. of L. on the New
York Central road. It is whether the
members of the Executive Hoard of
District Assembly, No. 240, are not
liable lo be proceeded against under the
provisions of tho act entitled "An act
to protect trade and commerce against
unlawful restraints and monopo
lies." It is known In Congressional
parlance as tho "Anti-Trust bill." A
prominent United States Senator Is
quoted as saying, thatwhllo the spirit of
tho law evidently does not aim at
strikes, he has no doubt that If a teat
caso he made It will result In the con
viction of the men.
tYetjb'fi Statement Denied,
Nkw Yoiik, Aug. 33, This morning
Mr. Hayes, secretary to tho General
Kxccutlvo Hoard of the Knights, made
the following statement:
"It Is a very strange thing that Mr.
Webb rhotild only now aay that the
Knights discharged from the employ of
tho load were discharged for drunken
nets. Incapacity nnd Insubordination
If this was tho fact It Is a proper case
for atbltratlon, and one that the Stale
Iloeid should take hold of
"Our Kxecutlve Board have, how
ever, gono thoroughly Into that m liter
and know there Is not one word of truth
In what o bsays."
Mr. Hayes further stated that the
board would have no meeting today,
but tuat they would leave for Albany In
At the Grand Central Depot Mr.
Webb most positively denied that there
was any truth In the report that Mr.
Depew would sail from Southampton
for home to day. "I do not expect him
home until the latter part of Septem
ber," said Mr. Webb.

THE ARGUMENTS OF THE LAWYERS.
Jadpe Bradtey Takse the Cae Uwier Ad-
vifmnl" k Dttfeien Will Be
Kedered on Monday.
The Btttlls habeas corpus case occu
pled the attention of .fudge Bradley
yesterday afternoon until t o'clock, at
which hour he adjourned court until
this morning at 10. Mr. Barker took
nl out an hour for the opening argu
ment. He held that there was really no
oxtiadltlon treaty existing between the
Territory of Utah and the District of
Columbia, but Judge Bradley corrected
lilm on this point ami said that there
was a statute In force.
Mr. Barker next attacked the writ of
requisition under which his client,
Bullls, had been turned over to the
custody of Hugh Turner. The alll
davits upon which the writ had lieen
executed wore Insulllclenl, and did not
allege that any rime was set forth, and
If there was It was on a date when the
petitioner was not In the Territory of
Utah. The attorney placed mttrli force
In his argument as to whether Mr.
Turner was" the proper person to have
custody of llm petitioner. He charac
terised the manner In which tills agent
from Utah hnd kidnapped lltillit as an
unwarranted outrage. More than tb-ti.
the man had proved by his own tent
nmiiy that Turner was a resident of
Idaho, and not of Utah.
Mr. C Maurice Smith opened hUsldo
In behalf of .Mr Turner by ciylnir tint
Attorney llsrker had laid himself llatile
urder the law for going to itockvlllu
and Interfering In any way with Bullls
and for bringing him to this city. Mr
Smith went over the extradition paiers
thoroughly and declared that they were
In every respect the most complete he
had ever seen. In order to make thorn
doubly fkctire Frances, the mm from
whom it was alleged Bullls had obtained
money by fa!e representations, had at
tached two lntad of one affidavit.
Mr. Smith thU mornlmi took up the
defense of Mr. Turner and argued that
he had a perfect right to do what he
had done lu taking lilm to Hockvllle.
Mr. Smith clilms that tils Honor, In
giving bis decision, must lie governed
exclusively by the returns made In the
case. Hugh Turner was the legally
authorized agent of the Territory of
Utah, aud If the Court thought that the
agent was not a responsible one, then he
was willing that any respectable person
be selected to accompany himself ami
Bullls to Salt Lake City. Mr. Smith
maintained that there was
NO LKOU. liUolSIl
on which the petitioner could be given
bU freedom. Tke attldavit Died by
Mr. Webb, In order to obtalu tho writ
of habeas corpus, set forth practically
nothing as to the conspiracy charged to
have been euttred Into between Messrs.
Turner, Francis and Holladsy. became
be (Webb) knew nothing about it. He
knew only what be had heard.
As to tbe iiuestlon whether Bullls
was a fugitive from tbe Territory of
U'ah Mr. Turner swore that be ob
tained tbe money at Salt Lake on tbe
HHk day of September, lhM, but BullW
made affidavit that be left there for
Washington on either tbe 10th or 17ih
of September. This affidavit was made
by a man wko was looking for bis
liberty, and bU word ought aot have
muck weight as against tke officials
and reputable citieas of Utah Mr.
-uiih quoted many laws ia support of
