After an executive session the senate ad
journed. THE GALVESTON HARBOR BILL.
Washington, Juno 11. The Galveston
harbor people are considerably disturbed
over the attitude of the house committee
on rule toward their bill. Tins bill ap
propriates $1,000,000, to be immediately
available, for the improvement of tho deep
water harbor at Galveston, and it is fur
ther provided that the appropriation of
61.000,000 a year shall continue for five
vcars, thus making ?5.000 in all. Tuis
lias been an appropriation which was
left out of the regular river and har
bor bill, the understanding being that
the Texas deep water bill and the hill for
the improvement of Sault Ste. Mario
canal, in Michigan, should go together as
independent measures. Tho Sault Ste.
Mane canal bill carries an appropriation
of $5,000,000. The river and harbor bill
passed the house a couple of weeks ago,
and about the same time a resolution was
introduced authorizing the committee on
rules to fix a day for the consideration of.
the Texas deep water and bault te.
Marie canal bills. It was expected that
the committee would report before
this time, but there appears to be
n hitch about t he matter, and the Michi-j
gan and lexas people are oeconung some
hat impatient at the delay. It is undei
Fiood that the committee now stands a tie.
Messrs. McKiuley and Blount are said to
favor the twojneasures. and are readv to
Jix a day for their consideration; "but
Messrs. Heed and Cannon appear to hesi
tate. The vacancy on the committee,
caused by the death of Mr. Randall, has
not lieen'lllled. Until this is done the res
olution mav not be reported. Meanwhile
the friends of the two bills are
growing anxious. It is said that
some of tho senators are urging
ndon by the house committee,
and have essayed to make
tions to Speaker Reed. These suggestions '
are not received witn niucn layor, ana se-
cording to tne siory iu tircuiswou luc sen
ators were most emphatically "earned
down." Altogether it begins to look a little
squally for the Texas deep water and Sault
Ste. Marie bills, "but the friends of both are
hopeful. It is probable that as soon as the
rush of regular appropriation bills is over
these two measures will be given a day, in
which event thero is little doubt of their

The Hlinoia Eepresentative Insulted by the
Beneficiary of a Bill.
Washington, June 11. Yesterday a
private bill was pending in the house for
the relief of Hyland C. Kirk and others,
which had been vigorously opposed by
Representative Springer, of Illinois. The
representative had occasion to pas3 out of
the hall, and at the doorway was confront
ed by Mr. Kirk, the beneficiary of the bill,
who demanded to bo informed why he op
posed the bill.
Mr. Springer replied that he opposed the
bill because he believed it was an improper
"I know your reason for opposing it," re
torted Kirk, "and (tapping his pocket) I
have it here in black ana white."
Mr. Springer thereupon bec.ime indig
nant and asked Mr. Kirk to produce his
evidence that Iip (Mr. Springer) was actuat
ed by any but proper motives.
Mr. Kirk reiterated his remark, and Mr.
Springer declared that if the gentleman in
sinuated that ho w;is actuated by any im
proper motive ho would have Kirk brought
before the bar of the house for contempt.
Mr. Kirk made no response, and Mr.
Springer returned to the house and helped
to defeat tho bill.

THE C0WLES CASE.
The Matter "Will be Hurried
MontkeAL. June 11. This morning Mrs.
Cowl es appeared in court before Justice
Tait with her daughter Florence and
friends. The letter which Cowles wrote
renouncing all claims to his daughter and
the order from him to the nuns with whom
she had been placed authorizing them to
deliver her up was produced. This was
regarded as concluding the case. Cowles'
condition is not improved and his wound
may result fatally.
A commission of physicians has been
appointed to examine Cowles to ascertain
if he is in lit condition to come into court.
If so, the case of Hale will at once go to
the grand jury, and, if a bill bo found
against him, lie will bo tried at once. None
of the party will leave Canada until cvery-
at present engaged with the Canadian
counsel making out a plan of defence. It
will be that the shooting was done in self
defence. It is known that Cowles had a
revolver in his pocket when brougiit to the
hospital, and that thore was some injury
to his shoulder, as if a struggle had taken
place in the cab.

It was a
habeas corpus aise by a land oilicc sharper
who had leen arrested for perjury for
swearing to false statements in affidavits
of contoat. The court held that the arrest
was right and the habeas corpus writ was
accordingly denied. This will tend to stop
tnee contests, which have of late grown
less frequent on account of several cases of
perjurv brought against contestants.

country members, who are in the majority.
It is a renewal of the old fight between the
city and the country, and can only end

The Terrible Death of a Young Man in a
Mew York Hospital.
New York, Juno 10. Edmond Corri
veau, a French Canadian, 30 years old,
died at Bellevuo hopital today from hydro
phobia. He was bitten on the wrist by a
small terrier dog about a month ago, at
his home in a Rhode Island village. The
flesh was badly torn, but at the time Cor
riveau did not suffer much pain. On
Thursday last he began to feel uneasy as
the wound began to trouble him. He
started for New York, but when he
arrived here he was much worse, and in
stead of going to the Pasteur institute, as
intended, he went immediately to the
Bellevue hospital. He told Dr. Paton. un
der whose charge he was placed, that he
was willing to submit to any treatment he
might deem necessary.
An attendaut was placed by the bedside
to be in readiness when Corriveau should
become violent. Corriveau's temperature
this time was 103V. His wrist was not
painful when it was pressed, but he had
the same sensation of constant pain
without the pressure. "By and bj he
said he was very thirsty and aked
for drink. Dr. Paton gave him a glass
or water "1 think," said the doctor last
night, in talking of it, "if a man had
any doubt about the diagnosis, that would
have settled it. He tried to drink, but he
could not swallow a drop. His thirst was
intense, and it was pitiful to see the poor
fellow try to swallow."
When he found he could get no relief
from his thirst, Corriveau became exceed
ingly excited, although his mind remained
perfectly clear He pleaded to have the
water taken away, because the sight of it
tormented him. To judge by his case, hy
drophobia, "a dread oi water," is mis
named. Corriveau showed no fear of
water, but spasmodic contraction of the
muscles of his throats made it impossible
for him to drink. After the vain attempt
to give him water, it was decided to let him
rest and make no effort to have him eat
or drink. Drugs were administered and
there was no marked change in his condi
tion until about 9 o'clock, when he became
delirious and got the delusion that he
was being bothered by dies. An
other attendant was summoned. Va
rious kiuds of hypnotics given him
had scarcely an effect on him.
"Physostigmine." an alkaloid of a plint
which paralyzes all the muscles, was tried,
but it only resulted in making the action
of the heart weaker. During the morning
he had asked the doctor to send for a priest
and about 10 o'clock a priest came and the
dying man received the last sacrament of
the Roman Catholic church.
As the disease advanced Dr. Payton did
what he could to lessen the agony of its
victim. Opiates enough to kill a man in a
normal condition were used without avail.
"For some time after 12: o'clock." said
Dr. Paton, "he was comparatively' quiet
and rational, talking nervously. Then m
sid of half a minute he became the wildest
maniac t,hat I have ever seen. His arms
were at that time tied to the side of the bed
and two men were watching him, but it
took four strong men to tie his legs and
fasten him so that he could not possibly
move. We kept on giving him chloroform
and morphine. His heart cot so weak
that every once and awhile we had
to stop "the chloroform, and every
time we stopped he had a spasm. I
have seen patients suffer, but never saw
suffering equal to bis. His temperature was
taken frequently but we had to stop because
when the thermometer was applied it
caused a spasm. The slightest thing
caused a spjim a draught or a fly touch
ing him. About 3 p. in- he died very sud
denly. He gave a gasp sad all was over..
His temperature at an hoar after he came
in was 105. About the middle of the
morning it was 1C9H'. and fifteen minntes
before he died it was lOT'-j. His pulse was
rapid and feeble throughout. The ulti
mate cause of his death was a spasm, mus
cular contractions interfering with the
muscles of respiration."

THE COTTON CROP.
Washington, June 11. The statistical
returns for June to the department of ag
riculture show an increase in acreage in
cotton in nearly every state. The area as
compared with acreage of 1SS9, is reported
in this preliminary investigation as fol
lows: Virginia, 93; North Carolina, 102;
South Carolina. 103; Georgia. 102; Florada,

S5; Louisiana, S4; Texas, &4, Arkansas S5:
Tennessee, S7. The fair price pre ailing,
with low prices for other products-, stimu
lates the extension of planting. The over
flows in Arkansas and Louisiana detained
planting in those states and prevented in
crease which would have otherwise been
made. There are locations where replant
ing to perfect stands injured by cold nights
is still continued, and will in extreme
cases to the 15th of June.
Stands aro generally very good in the
Carolinas with exceptions" in low areas,
where frosts or cool nights have destroved
plants. In the Mississippi valley and iu
Texas heavy rains, local hoods and inun
dations have caused an unusual anfciunt
of replanting, and on the Mississippi and
othcrgreat rivers dolayof plantinguntil the
waters recede. In such casas tho seed has
been chopped in the mud, nnd the plants
have appeared promptly, sometime in
four days from planting.
Except on the Atlantic coast the excess
of rain has retarded chopping out and cul
tivation, leaving the crop somewhat grasfy,
though recent linn weather has done much
to secure clean cultivation. In more south

tho soil generally Is .hurd and cloddy. Coru

In Ohio the condition of wheat has visibly
improved. No particular change- in In
diann. Illinois reports snow a decline part
due to injury by injects. The Hessian ily
has damaged wheat in many counties.
In some of tho counties of Mis
souri and Kansas local rams
have fallen sufficient for tho present
need of crops, but in many juirt
of these states, outs, wheat and corn aro
suffering for rain. Reports show a marked
decline in the condition of wheat and tho
average condition of oats is very low. In
Perry and St. Charlea counties, Missouri,
oats have been seriously injured by tho
grain plant louse.
In Nebraska crop conditions aro much
the same as in Kansas, where local showers
have fallen as has beeu the cahe in many
parts of the state. Corn is thriving. It
is too late, however, to repair t4ie damage
which the oat crop has sustained by tho
prolonged drought. In Iowa crop condi
