President Franci3 G. Newlands presided
over tbe meeting of tbe National Silver
Committee yesterday, ia which the action

it was claimed that the people of the
country demanded the passage of a free

Harley B. Morse and George B. Merrick
of Denver have arrived Is Washington
with a silver bar in a gripsack. They pro
pose to present a stiver bar, valued at
$1,000, and demand that it be coined into
silver. Upon refusal, they wiil apply for
a writ of mandamus, and through the
medium of the Supreme Court, compel the
Secretary of the Treasury to do what they

this move would only delay legitimate

A COMPOSITE DOLLAR COIN.
Washington, December 10th.—General
Berdan has written a letter to Francis G.
Newlanda, proposing a decided novel coin,
age measure. He sugges's a composite
coin of gold and silver mechanically com
bined. He thinks the dollar shouldbe the
size of a silver quarter, containing 25 cents'
wirth of silver. In the center would be
a hole which would be plugged up with 75
cents' worth of cold, the liumer of grains
of silver to be employed to be decided by
Congress. Around the gold plug would be
raised a milled edge, which would serve to
protect tbe gold from friction. Tbe Gen
eral argues that the size of this coin would
be much more convenient than the present
dollar for general circulation, and says that
of the numerous prominent men to whom
he has unfolded the scheme not one has
THE CAUCCS AGREEMEJiT ACCEPTABLE.
New York, December 10.h.—Washing
ton specials say the silver managers are en
deavoring to secure promises from the
Democrats not to obstruct final legislation
by offering free coinage amendments. The
Republican leaders of the House have
given the Senators to understand the cau
cus on the financial measure is acceptable,
and urge that every effort be made to pass
it in its present shape, othtrwise they will
not be responsible for the result.
IHE ELECTIONS BILL.
Senator Stewart Vigorously Opposes Its
Washington, December 19th.—Stewart's
speech in opposition to the Federal elec
tions bill was the feature of the Senate pro
ceedings to-day, and is the topic of conver
sation here to-night. It is the general
opinion here that Stewart's bolt will en
courage other Republican Senators to fol
low suit. Like Stewart, Senator Teller of
Colorado is very acxioaa for silver legisla
tion this session, and it is expected that his
opposition to the elections bill wili fir.d ex
pression in a speech to be delivered soon.
Very few Senators were in their seats
this afternoon when Stewart rose to ad
dress the Senate, but before he br.d been*
speaking ten minutes most of the seats
were filled by both Republican and Demo
cratic Senators, who likened with closest
attention. The Democratic Senators crowd
ed closely around him, and frequently
clapped their hands in response to Stew
art's vigorous denunciations of the force
bill. The galleries frequently broke into
applause, which was not stopped by the
presiding officer's admonition.
At the close of his speech Senator Teller
shook Stewart warmly by the hand, and
the Democratic Senators crowded around
him aud did likewise.
&CBSIDY SHIPPING BILL,,
The Final Fate of the Measure at Present
Washington, December lft.h.—Tbe sub
sidy tonnage combination bill will prob
ably occupy the House for a day or two at
least, and what the final result will be is
very doubtful. The opposition has not vet
been folly crystallized. The members have
been busy with other work that has been
assigned to them, or that is of especial in
terest to them, and they have not had time
to thoroughly examine this proposition.
There are some members who oppose ail
subsidy schemes on general principles, and
therefore do not have to look very deeply
into the question to determine where they
stand, but some others will be influenced i
mostly by the question of cost. Some
favor the mail subsidy proposition who
will not vote for the tonnage bounty
scheme, against which there is the strong
The- idea of the friends of these two
measures was that by combining they
■would bring together "the suppsrters of
both propositions, and so secure the passage
of a measure that would give all they
wanted, but the indications are that they
have made a miscalculation and have
materially weakened their position by
The fact shat a majority voted to con
sider the matter does not insure the passage
of tbe bill proposed. Some less compre
hensive scheme may be adopted, or the
whole thing may fail. At present they are
going over the whole question in Commit
tee of the Whole, and a number of very
material amendments will be proposed
during the course of consideration. The
outcome may be a bill for a mail subsidy
merely between this country and the Cen
tral American port?. The Democrats are
hopeful of knocking the whole thing over.
Persecution «f Jius
Washington, December 19ih.—In the
House to-day. Cummings of New York of
fered for reference a resolution setting forth
that the members of the House of Repre
sentatives of the United States have beard
with profound sorrow and feeling akin to
horror, the reports of the persecution of
Jews in Russia, reflecting barbarism of
past age;, disgracing humanity and im
peding the progress of civilization. That
the sorrow is intensified by the fact that
such occurrences should happen in a coun
try which has been filled with friends of
the United States, and that clothed itself
with giory not long Bince by the emanci
pation ot" serfs and by its defense of Christ
ians from the oppression of the Turks.
The resolution directs the Secretary of
State to forward it to the American Minis
ter at St. Petersburg for presentation to tbe
Alien Land Act
Washikgtox, December U«;b.—Oates of
Alabama, with authority of the House
Committee on Judiciary, to-day reported a
substitute for the bill to amend the Alien
Land Act. The substitute differs from the
bill now on the calendar ;n that it is made
to apply not only to persona who are aliens,
but to "any firm, company or corporation
composed in whole or in patt of aliens, ex
cept railroad corporations, and that five
years are given aliens within which to dis

An Illustration of its importance is to be
found ia the present depressed financial condi

So general was the uneasines-s and apj,robea
sioa that the money which ought to be in circu
lation is being hoarded, 'i he bill he was now
considering proposed that tie Government was
in condition, to issue a supply of money equal
substantially to the general demand, and to
erect a standard by which the Government
might determine up to the useful value of 3 per
cent, what was the amount needed.

under the provisions of the bill upon un in

carity, and iv supply whs to be ascertained and

Two percent, was the amount to be paid to
the Government for the loan of its money, aud
ro long as mo'.:ey was worth more thau two per
cent., security being practically inexhaustible,
muney would always be borrowed from the
Government, and thus the Government would
be able to discharge its duties and supply the
Tne principle of the Government loaning
money was fully established by the advance it
BOW had made upon its own bonds, which,
while entirely good between the banker ana
i Government, did strengthen the security of the
bill-holder, which rested at last upon th» au
thority ol the Government.
"Ihe scheme of the bill," continued the
speaker, "is to supply an ample amount of
money (or business purposes. I have mentioned
lauds as security, because they appear to be the
best aud most certain of all security, and are
sufficient to furnte;. all the money needed. Tne
people, I think, will have more confidence in a
financial measure that is new and radical, if it
has at present land only for a basis.
"Th- rate of interest on these loins on real
estate is fixed at two per cent, iv the bill, but
in time may be reduced as experience shall
teach. The rate of interest cna:ged by the
Government under its provision will not neces
sarily fix the general rate of interest for busi
ness purposes. That will always M determined
by its value in use. The farmer, having this
best security, will borrow for his own use or th«
u«eof others who may be willing to pay him a
satisfactory interest, 'ihe banker borrows
money trora the Gov> rnmeut iree of interest
and loans it at s;ieh rate as its n?e commands in
the market. This measure has been compared
v the law adopted in the Argentine Republic
for loans on laud, but there is no analogy be
tween the two, and to compare the working of
a measure of thnt republic uf say 5,000.000 popu
lation to thn". of c.ir country, with its eulight

me'hods of seme irresponsible banker to those
of the lio'hschilds.
"The foundation of the whole matter, and the
real qu siiou to be considered. Is that inas
much as the Government reserves the right to
issue money, it is its duty, tte means beine pro
vided, to furnish what is necessary to the pros
perity of the people."
The bill by lugalls to allow the exchange of
interest-bearing debt for leg«! tender notes, was
referred to the Finance Committee.
A resolution by Maiiderson, was referred to
the Committee on Indian Affairs, instructing
that commi'.tee to iuquire into the condition oi
the Indian tribes in Nona and South Dakota
Montana aud elsewhere, the steps necessary to
disarm them, etc.
The senate bill for public buildings at Fresno
California, was placed on the calendar.
The election bill was taken up, and Bates and
Gib?on argued against it.
.Stewart made an argument against the bill on
the ground tnat an attempt to execute it in the
.South would be disastrous to both races. He
was a Head of the colored man, and deeply
sympathized with him, but could not ask him
toputhJalilein jeopardy. iv order to fight the
political battle for nis (Stewart's) advantage
He was equally a friend to the white man, and
dtsirei to retrain trom any act which might
justify the white man in making war upon a de
fenseless race, which Congress enfranchised
Whatever was done in tbe matter of the
protection of suffrage in the South
unless done through voluntary action of the peo
ple of that section, would have to result in one
of two things: If the negro was protected by
foice, the same force would inevitably be driven
to the necessity of destroying his enemy that
involve! the enslavement and final extermina
tion of the whites. The employment of force
would result ultimately in the extermination of
either of the backs or the whites. If military
power were to be u?e<i in the execution of tin*
pending bill, then itthould be defected If It
was to be a dead le.ter, why pns3 it? PuWic
opinion at the South was entirely sgainst it
Instead of the protection of the colored man it
would bring upon him persecution and misery,
it not death. No assumption of party necessity
could justify such an act. It was the plain
duty of the Senate to trust to natural ca-.i°es in
the hope that they would remedy the evil The
bill ought not to pass, because it would never
be euOrced; because it would consolidate the
Southern whites; because it would increase sec
tional animosity and kindle anew the discords
ol the pas;.
Stewart recalled the speeches in opposition
to the force bill of 1873 made by Senators Hoar
and Hawley, then representatives. Among
those voting against the bill Stewart recalled
Foster, Garfield, William Walter Phelps. Kas
son and Kellogg. He suggested that the s-.iper
v^ors and Cher officers would become marked
men. From the reports of the investigating
committees and all knowledge obtained during
the past twenty years, it was plain what their
fate would be. Unless Congress was disposed
to proceed to a remedy under the Constitution
—that of denying representation for any act ot
exclusion from or obstacles to the exercise of
the franchise—the only remedy that existed
was in the enforcement of the laws already on
the statute books, and In the assurance that no
pressure from the outside would be exercised
Iv his judgment the solid houih was main
tained by the use of the err that it was in
tended on the part of those who controlled the
Geneial Government to interfere with their
local aflairs. The moment .such a cry was
effectually proven to be without foundation
the South could not any longer be kept solid.
The sectional party there had already begun to
disintegrate. That disintegration must neces
sarily bring about protection to the negro vote
An organization now irresistible in some
States in suppressing that vote would be among
the earliest to bid fgr it when they found it
necessary for their existence.
Hoar had the provisions of the force bill of
ISTS read, for the purpose of justifying the oppo
sition to it by himself and other Republicans,
and to show that there was no inconsistency
in the support of the pending measure.
Dawes introduced a bill to prohibit tbe opeu
ine on .Sunday of any exhibition where appro
priations of the United States are expended.

Washington. December 19th.—The House to
day, after passing the District of Columbia bill,
took up the conference report on the bill
amending the Act for a division of a portion of
the Sioux Indians In Dakota into smaller reser

drawn up three days before the assignment,
which placed the Labilities at $528,000 and
the assets at 4604,000. This statement wes
about $1,000,000 less than that made by

Four Indians Pay the Death Fenalty In
MnaoOL* (lion:.;, December 19;h —The
greatest hanging which ever took place in
the Northwest occurred here this morning.
Four Indian aiurderen were hanged at the
Court-house here. Their names were Ln La
See, Pierre Pnul, Antley and Pascile.
Pierre Paul and Antley smilingly bade
their friends good by. Twenty minutes
after the trap sprune all were dead. Tiitir
neck 3 were broken.
The crimes for which the four Indians
were hanged were the most cowardly and
Pasceie killed a prospector named J. M.
Dunn in the spring of 1889 near Demers
ville. Dunn traded horses with him, and
when he refused to trade back the Indian
shot him, taking the horse and what money
he had. Pascale hid the body in the brush,
where the bones were discovered months
later by another Indian to whom Pascale
admitted the crime. The bones were iden
tified by the remnants of clothing and Pas
cale wa3 arrested.
Antlay's crime was participation in tbe
mnrder of three white prospectors —Mc-
Donald. Seely and Thompson—in the fall
of 18S7 at Wolf Creek, near Tobacco
Plains. The prospectors were surprised at
a camp-fire by a party of six Kootenai In
dians, and were murdered in cold blood.
Two of the Indians were captured soon
after, and lynched by the people of De
mersville. Antiey remained at large till

bodies. She notified the authorities, and
the murderers were arrested last summer.

Lands. Morris says during the time the
refugees were getting away to the Bid
Lands sharp firing was heard between the
Indian police and the hostiles. and that a

settlers made haste to reach the towns
they can give no further particulars. As

KOT ESOUGH FOOD.
Washington. December 19:h. — Dr.
Blued, of the Indian Defense Association,
has received a long letter from the Indian
chief Red Cloud, at Pine Kidge Agency,
under date of December 10th. Red Cloud
says he is a constant friend of the whites,
and his people have no intention of going
on the warpath. He never had anything
to do with the ghost dance. He complains
of the Government rations being cut down
more and more every year. The past two
seasons were so dry the Indians could
raise little, and rations were so scant they
bad to kill their own cattle to avoid starva
tion. Many became sick from want of a
proper quantity of food, and 217 have died
from starvation since the fall of last year.
Meeting to Reduce Passenger Bates to
Chicago, December 19.h.—A meeting of
the Chicago and St. L;uis lines was held at
the office of Chairman Finley, of the
Western Passenger Association, for the
purpose of readjusting rates to Pat ific Coast
poiais, rendtred necessary by the opening
of the new Santa Fe route to the West bi
the way of Bt. Louis. The new line will be
opened on Sunday. Heretofore tbe rate to
California via Si. Louia has been greater
than thst via Missouri river pants. A
satisfactory agreement was reached, by
which the Santa Fe wiil be permitted To
make the same raie9 via San Fracciscj as
are in vogue upon the more direct lines by
the wey of Kacsis City and Oriiaha. The
effect wiil be to lov.-er the existing rate via
St. L^uis SO cents per ticket. The agree
ment, which is a temporary one, will last
until a n;ore satisfac'ory equalization of
the existing rates can be made.
KOT A STRONG AGREEMENT.
New York, December 19ih.—The Com-
Mtiii'd Bulletin, editorially discussing the
Western Railroad agreement, sayr: It is a
serious question whather the Advisory
Board possess any real power whatever.
The agreement does not look as strong or
binding as has beeu expected. The abseice
of provi>ion3 in regard to the control of the
different companies caises a feeling of dis
trust. It seems to be the general im
pretsion of Wali street this agreement will
be found not materially stronger than that
formed with so much flourish by the rail
way Presidents sometime ago, wcich asso
cia'ion of "gentlemen" was found to have
no power and carve to nothing. It is a
question whether the new agreement
confers upon anybody more power than the
old one. It is stipulated, indeed, that any
official or employe who may disregard the
established rates shall be at once discharged.
But discharged by whom ? What power
conld discharge Gould from the Presidency
of the Missouri Pacific, or Huntington from
the Presidency of the Southern Pacific?
Even the form of agreement is about as
frail as it can be. The compact really in
sures a term of six months only. There
seems every reason to expect that this ex
pedient for controlling railroad competition
will come to (he same fruitless isjue as all
that preceded if.

BISHOP MANOGUK'S VIEWS.
New Yobk, December 19.h.—Ri^ht Rev.
Bit-hep Jlauogue, of 3acramento, Cal , has
arrived on the M»j 'Stic. Bishop Mano^ue
was bora in Kilkenny, Ireland, and is on
his way home after spending eight weeks
traveling over Ireland. Speaking ol Par
ne'.l and the present liiah bituatioa the
Bishop ssys: "At present the people of
Ireland are S5 greatly excited they have
difficulty in viewing tbe situation wisely.
However, there can be no doubt the lend
iug people of Ireland fetl convinced that
Parnell is making a great mistake iv main
taining his position in face of the fact lhat
it is in.ire than likely that he could, by
temporary re irtment, gain home rule for
Irelaud in a short time. To-day the ardent
we!l-wishtrs and wexkets for Ireland's
canee believe Paruell is no longer working
for tbe svt'li-being and welfare of bis conn"
try. They br-lieve Parnell i 3 nosy making
his fi.-^ht for P^rneli and not Or tome rule.
He liu9 the advauiug: of the prej :(iice3 of
thf Irish people sgiina England, as is now
deliberately postponing the further ad
vancement of the ciuse for which be so
long and hones'ly labored.
"His fight to day is to be a greater man
than Gladstone. He refuses to perform the
great act of patriotism by withdrawing, and
thereby giving a chancefor the Irish mem
bers to remain intact, acting with the Lib
erals to confer upon Ireland (he longed-for
boon of home rule. The people of Ire
land could not have been weaned from
Parnell had it not been for the exposure of
(he divorce Courts. In that cas^i be prom
ised to come forth from public trial un
stained, and left many of the very bes Irish
elements in doubt as to the issue. But they
trusted him and believed him innocent.
Then instead of clearing himself, he ap
pfared neither personally nor by counsel,
and by thus confessing hiciseif gailly he
bitterly disappointed his most ardent
friends. It ia this admission of guilt which
led so many supporters of home rule to
declare agsinst Parnell. The next peneral
election wiil show how thoroughly he is

The Judges Refuse to Have Mile. Bom
Paris, December 19:h.—In the Eyraud
triai tu-dey Dr. Liegeois, head of the medi
cal faculty of the College of Nancy, and a
believer in hypnotization, explained his
ideas on the subject,and expressed surprise
that he had not been allowed to see Mile.
Bompard for the purpose of ascertaining to
what degree she is susceptible to hypnotic
influence. The prisoner ought aeain to be
put to sleep by mesmerism in order to re
vive har recollection of the facts occurring
at the moment of the confession of the
crime. According to the indictment, Ey
raud bad not been able to pat Mile. Bom
pard asleep, yet she had been amenable to
the hypnotic influence of Garanger, having
revealed the crime to him while hypno
tized. For his (Liegeois') part, if he*were
the Judge, bearing in mind the previous
nvs^arriages of justice, he would rather
cut off his head than pronounce sentence
[ upon Mile. Bompard.
When the sensation which this d?c'.ara
tion caused had subsided, the Procareur
asked by what scientific means it was de
termined whether hynotic sleep is real or
Liegeois replied that a subject really put
to sleep can bear, withaaj} betraying any
symptoms of sensibility to pain, pia pricks
in various portions of the body.
Dr. Br'caardel was then called and 3aid
he had little esteem for the theories of j
hypnotism. Liegeois' statements wanted
scientific proof. Brouardel was not in
favor of again hypnotizing the prisoner.
He did not wish to ruu the risk of letting
the audience bear the revelations that
might be made by the accused.
Drs. Mollet and Ballet shared his views.
They thought the case too complicated to
h«v^j been committed under hypnotic in
Mile. Bompard's counsel and connsel for
Eyraud jointly requested that the woman
be hypnotized in open Court.
The Judges, after consnltation, refused
The Excitement of a Hanging Causes a
Shebbbookk (Quebec), December 19th.—
Bnerifl Webb died suddenly of beart dis
ease at 8:45 o'clock this morning. He was
preparing to execute Kemi La Monlagne,
and it is believed that the excitement at
tending the preparations for the hanging
was the canse of his death.
La Montagne was hanged at 9:26, the
Sherill's death having delayed the execu
tion only a few moments.
The crime for which La Montagne suf
fered the ex'reme penalty of the law was
most abominable. One niabt in the month
of Jaly, 1858, he went v the hoaae of his
brother in-law, XapMeon Michel, enticej
him to the door and *hot him twice. Then
he deliberately cnt the throat of the
wounded man and slashed his bleedirg
body with the knife. Not satisfied with
this act of unparalleled brutality, the mur
derer dragged the siill living iaan back
into the house and set it on fire. He then
fled, leaving his victim for dead, but Michel
dragged hiinsrlf from the flames, badly
burned, and died after a few weeks, but not

A RECEIVER WANTED.
The Directors of aa Insurance Company
Accused of Fraud.
FOBXLfSD (Or), December 19.h— On
December Btb, Charles R. Barnett,a citizen
of Kentucky, tiled a petition in tbe United
State! Circuit Court, asking for the appoint
ment of a receiver for the Northwest Fire
and Marine insurance Company.
The corporation was incorporated under
tbe laws of Oregon, with tbe principal
ctiise in this city. Ten days were given
the insurance company to answer the pe
tition. The case wa3 called in Court to
day, but as the pardes to the suit were not
quite ready, the hearing was postponed till
In the petition, Barnett alleges that he is
the owner of 125 shares of the original cap
ital stock; that the Board of Directors has
maintained and kept false accounts and
statements for the purpose of deceiving,
misleading and deluding the stockholders
and for the purpose of misleading the State
officers whes? duty it is to look after the
affairs of all insurance companies in the
State, and for the further purpose of delud
ing the public generally.
The petition further alleges that on Oc
tober 20, 1880 theDirectorSjieviedan assess
ment of 50 per cent, on the subscribed
stock, giving fourteen days only to pay the
same, well knowing that owing to »he
financial stringency tbe holders must tat
felt their holdings, and when the forfeit
should occur the Directors would be given
an opportunity to buy in the stock; that
the allairs of the corpoiation did not war
rant such action save for the aggrandize
ment of the personal interests ol the Di
The petition further sejs forth that the
business of the corporation can now be
wound up with bnt slight loss to the stock
holders, but if further conducted as at
present will result in loss to the sharehold
ers, and will continue a menace to the pub
lic doing business with the corporation.
Secretary of State Mcßride examined the
company's books November 9.h last, &nd
his examination a3 published ihonred tha
total assets of the company to be (205,
--823 88, and iiabiiiiUs $1)3 452 78.
Upon this showing the Directors will
probably aik that tlie petitiou be set aside,
and that the company be allowed to con
tinue business. The heaving is now in
progress. The company has risks through
out the Northwest valued at about t10.000,
