National Capital News.
Washington, Oct. 2. The capital this
morning was almost deserted. A few
bight Beerers were in the corridors and in
the rotunda a small army of scrubbers
was engaged in the task of effacing from
the walls and steps the evidences of the
wear and tear of a ten month's session,
nnd a few newspaper men wandered
nround hoping against hope that some
scrap of news would repay them for their
visit. But everything was dead. In the
senate chamber not a senator appeared.
Mr. Owens of Ohio was the only member
in the house. He sat in n cloud of dust
raised by the men sweeping the hall at
tending to his correspondence.
NOMINATIONS CONFIRMED AND RE
JECTED. Washington', Oct. 2. In the ten months
of fression that closed yesterday President
Harrinon got to the senate H.837 nomina
tions, of which all but twelve were con
firmed. As many of the nominations con
tained names of more than one person
they represented probably 4,500 appoint
ments. Several hundred of these were
postmasters at ofiices which became presi
dential through growth of business. They
also include appointments in connection
with the census, nearly all of which are
temporary in their nature. Iu te first
session of the Fori y-nineth congress which
lasted eight months, President Cleveland

IMPORTANT TARIFF OMISSION.
Washington, Oct. 2. It appears that
an important omission was made in the
tariff as ourollod and signed. Section 30
of the internal revenue schedule, which
was originally st rickon out by the senate
and subsequently restored by the confer
ence, was completely omitted on tho en
rollment. The section provided for the al
lowance of drawback on smoking and
manufactured tobacco and snuff held in
unbroken packages in the hands of tho
manufacturers at the date when the re
ductions go into effect. A3 this date is
Jan 1, next, however, there will be still
ample opportunity for congress at its next
fcession to correct tho error by supple
PROBABLY ON HIS WAY.

is dated the 22d of August, and it is
believed that long before this time a com
missioner has been appointed and is proba

DECREASE OF BONDED DEBT.
Washington, Oct. 2 It is stated at the
treasury department that the decrease in
the bonded dobt of the United States dur
ing the past month, viz: $4-',31G,J4U, was
greater than in any mouth since the per
iod of relunding operations under Secre

FIRST TEST OF THE LAW.
Topeka, Kan., Oct. 2. Argument in the
noted Roher habeas corpus case, the first
test of the Wilson original package law,
has been concluded. The petitioner's at
torney argued against the constitutional
ity of the new law and made the point
that as the prohibitory law was not oper
ative as far as dealers in original
packages were concerned before the
enactment of the Wilson bill
it never was constitutional law, and
and the Wilson bill cannot make a state
law effective in that class. Altnough no
formal opinion was expressed by either
Judge Foster, or Judge Phillips, who
listened to the arguments in the case, both
practically admitted the tenability of the
position taken in this particular and it is
conceded that if a court decides tne new to
be constitutional it can't be effective until
the legislature passes another prohibitory
measure. The case is one of unusual interest.

Second Day's Session of the Iron and Steel
New York, Oct. 2. The second day's
convention of the British Iron and Steel
institute began in Chickering hall this
morning with a somewhat larger attend
ance of members but with fewer ladies
than yesterday. Sir James Kitson again
presided although Sir Frederick Abel was
elected president of the iustituto at yes
terday's meeting. He said that tho Daper
of Mr. James Gayler, of Bessemer, Pa., on
"The Development of American Blast
Furnaces," read at yesterday's meeting,
created a great deal of intcrc&t and he was
sorry the discussion upon it was cut short.
William Whitley, of Stockton-on-Lees.
England, said the English visitors would
inspect the principal blast furnaces of
America with much interest.
Sir James Kitsou announced that ex
Mayor Hewitt had so far recovered from
his illness as to be able to attend tho
meeting and it would be appropriate to
make the presentation of the Bessemer
gold medical which was postponed yester
day. Mr. Hewitt who hnd been sitting in
tne ante room came upon the platform
and was heartily received. Sir James
made the presentation speeeh. He said:
Mr. Hewitt s fame as a metallurgist and
as advocate of scientific education had
long been known in England, and it was
only a debt of gratitude which tho Iron
and Steel Institute of Great Britian paid
I Mr. Hewitt for his services, when they
presented him tne witli tne meaai. .Mr.
Hewitt was the first man to limit an open
hearth furnace iu the United States. In
fact, his record was a record of "firsts"
Sir James then read the diploma which
accompanied the medal. Mr. Hewitt in
replying ased leave for once to read what
he had to say. Mr. Hewitt's reply was
quite appropriate and showed him to be
thoroughly acquainted with the economic
conditions of the iron and steel trade and
of legislation effecting the interests there
of. Prof. H. M. Howe, of Boston, Mass., then
read his paper on the manufacture of
Bessemer steel in the United Suites. After
the reading of Prof. Howe's paper the con
vention took a recess.
At the atternoon session the services at
tending the unveiling of the Lyman Holly
statue in Washington Square were begun.

HAVE BEEN "PALLED.".
A Large Colony of Mormon Immigrants
Young Girl Proselytes.
New YORK, Oct. 2. The authorities at
the barge office this morning used an im
mense amount of moral persuasion on the
thirty-two young Mormons that arrived
yesterday on the steamer Wyoming to in
duce them to forego their intention of be
coming proselytes to tho Mormon faith.
The girls were separated from the other
passengers as they landed nnd placed in a
room by themselves. The female mission
aries from the Emigrant Girls' home went
among them and tried to convince them of
the folly of the course they proposed to fol
low. It was a very hard undertaking.
One of the girls Karen Sylvestersen by
name, who acted as spokeswoman for the
party, frankly acknowledged that they
were all willing to be one
of seven or eight wives, and were fully
aware of the principles of Mormonism.
The girls are all young and some of them
remarkably pretty. The attempt of the
missionaries to influence them proved an
utter failure and as all the barge office
authorities con do is to use persuasion.
The entire party will proceed on their
journey tomorrow on the old Dominion
line. The parry cemprises all told 202
souls, of whom thirty-two are children.
Among the lot is a married English womnn
who left her husband in England to take
up with a Mormon. She said she was
called and compelled to go.
"SUCKED THE CHILD'S BREATH."
Chicago. 111.. Oct, 2. The coroner's
jury in the cae of a child which died in its
cradle while a large cat was in the cradle
with it. brought in a verdict to the effect
that the child's death resulted from hav
iug its "breath sucked by a cat." This
morning Coroner Herbe gave Deputy
MouHchan, who presided over the inquest.
a sever repremand for accepting such a
verdict. "That's a ridiculous verdict,"
said Mr. Herbe, "and you should have re
fused to accept it. The verdict should
have been, 'death by suffocation.' How
did the jury duow that the cat sucked the
child's breath" "A reputable physician
testified that the child was undoubtedly
suffocated in that way," explained Momi
ghau, "lesides I had no business to mter
lere with the verdict."
FROM THE LIMB OF A TREE.
St. Loop, Oct. 2. A special to the Re
public from Princeton. Ky., says: Ernest
Humphrey, colored, who brutally murder
ed vesteniay morning, his paramour, Dicy
Miller, was taken from the jail here las't
night by a mob of armed and masked
colored men and lynched. J he authorities
had made arrangements for a special
guard, but did not anticipate that the
lynching would be attempted before 2
o'clock m the morning. When therefore
the mob nmde its appearance at the jail at
11 o'clock, well armed with guns and
pistol, the officers were helpless and un
able to make any resistAiuv. A railroad
iron was used to batter down the door be
hind which was the murderer, who was
quicklv taken from the jailand swung into
eteruuy from a limb of a tree.
THE OUTPUT OF FLOUR.
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn., Oct. 2. The North
western Miller says: The mills improved
a trifle on the amount of flour got out last
week. Tho aggregate output for the week
ending Saturday was 170,250 barrels,
against 104,540 barrels the week before,
151,:J00 barrels for the corresponding time
in 1SS9, and 178,100 barrels in 1SSS. There
is very little life to the flour market and
unless the demand soon improves, more
or less shutting down will occur
as the mills are about all caught up on
orders. The sales the past week have been
of scattering, small lot kind nnd fell a
good deal short of manufacture. Prices
are generally lower and considerable effort
is being made to sell. Parties who were
15(g.25 cents higher than lowest a week ago,
have reduced their figures nearly that
much and quotations come nearer being
uniform than is often the case.
A HOPELESS EXPENSE.
Brussels, Oct. 2. The Independence
Beleque says that the adoption of the Mc
Kinley tariff bill ensures the failure of the
world's fair at Chicago, as it will be a
needless and hopeless expense for Euro
peans to send exhibits there.
FRIENDLY TO RECIPROCITY.
HALIFAX, X. S., Oct. 2. A large gather

per, Sir Jolin A. MncDonald and
T. E. Ranny, M. P. All announced

mgton when he was authorized to nego
tiate reciprocity aud a full settlement ' of

FORT Worth, Tex., Oct 2. At noon
today George Louis Hurley of Fort Worth
and Miss Eva Pierce Shelly of Dallas were
married at the Sisters' hospital in tffis

A few friends gnthered at the bedside. Miss

breakfast was served by the si-ters in
charge of the hospital. Mr. Hurley is one
Fort Worth's moneyed men. Mrs. Hur

until the complete recovery of the groom.

Spectafdlsratch to the Dully Eaclo.
Guthkie, Ok., Oct. 2. The council
chamber was crowded this morning with
an excited crowd anxious to see what the
council would do with the ingeniously
amended bill locating the capital. Every
one seemed to expect something to "drop,"
but no one seemed quite certain what that
something would be. But the Guthrie
people felt that they had things secure
unless some very unexpected mine should
President Gardenhire called Judge
Foster of Logan to the chair, which was a
verification of the rumor that Gardenhire
would withdraw his support from Okla
homa City on account of the split on the
location of the agricultural collept, and
accordingly a thrill of hope swept through
the hearts of the Guthrieites. This
hope was strengthened when Oklahoma
Brown arose in the deathlike stillness
with a most solemn visage and announced
in dolorous tones that it was evident that
the combine was broken, and the Gnthrie
people were correspondingly jubilant. But
it being necessary to dispose ot tnis mil
in some manner in order to bring it before
the council he would move that the coun
cil concur in the amendment.
Mr. Brown of Logan, said that the most
expeditious way of disposing of it, and in
such a manner that its ghost would aot in
the future haunt the legislature, moved
an indefinite postponement, and explained
the motion in sucn n manner as to call out
the full factional vote in its support.
The thuuderbolt fell to the utter and
complete confusion of every one save the
"sly ' ones who were on the inside, when
Grimmer, the member irotn JJeaver, wno
never before wavered in his support of
Gnthrie, cast his vote with the opposition.
His former friends could not behove their
ears "When they recalled that not five min
utes before he assured them that he re
mained steadfast in his old position, and
members rushed to his desk to explain tho
purpose of the voting, but he sat obdur
ately mute and never opened his head save
to vote with Oklahoma City, which he
continued to do until everything was over
and Oklahoma City had gained her object.
The "new" combine carried amotion to
adjourn as soon as the capital Question
was disposed of, seeming to think that
they had earned a little respite.
To say that Grimmer was a cynosure
for every eye expresses tho altitude of tho
assembled crowd very mildly. For some
time after adjournment the people gath
ered about the railing to gape at
him. The hero of the house remained
silent as a sphinx until the crowd
had somewhat dispersed, when he silently
It is boldly asserted by leading Republi
cans here that Governor Steele cannot
sign the bill passed under such circum
stances, for it would disrupt the Republi
can party and make the territory Demo
cratic. They claim that the Republican
party outside of Oklahoma City, which is
the Democratic stronghold, is virtually
unanimous in favor of Guthrie
for the capital. A strong argument
will be that the scheme was the
result of a trade made by Republican mem
bers from Oklahoma City by which they
sold the organization of the two houses to
the opposition, voting to locate the capital
at Oklahoma City, and for the governor to
sign the bill would seem to be a sanction
of the sell out of the Republican party.

Chair A motion was made by Mr.
Campbell that we suspend further action
under the call of the house.
Mr. Terrill We revert back to my ori
ginal motion that we reconsider the vote
on the reconsideration of council bill No. 7
Mr. Terrill continued:
Now, Mr. Speaker, I am taking a step
that I consider my duty as a man in mak
ing that motion, and desire to explain my
reasons therefor. I am taking a step
which I realize will bo looked upon by a
large portion of the people of this territory
as a dishonorable net. I realize tho full
extent of the consequences of my action.
My reasons for such action are as follows:
My constituents from the first, to
a man have been opposed to
my voting to locate the capital at
Oklahoma City. They havo condemned
me because I had atcreed to vote for Okla
homa City. I could not see how I could
get out of it honorably without votimr for
Oklahoma City, because I had agreed to.
I told them first, last and nil tho time I
had agreed to it for the purpose of giving
them something in return. For voting for
the capital at Oklahoma City they have
charged me with selling. Yesterday my
constituents came to me and said they were
satisfied they were not going to get any
thing. The amendment that was put to
the bill gives the council a chance to trade
Payne county out of itn boots. That is
my reason for making these remark and
the change that I now take withdrawing
my support from tho county that givoa
nothing in return. Tho consequence is I
cannot consistently vote the capital away
Irom outline as it is to tlie lntera-t of my
constituency that tho capital stay here and
I will serve my constituents if it dishonors
me and sinks me into oblivion. I realize
the fact that if the capital is moved to
Oklahoma City that that city will give
nothing in return. When elected I told
my constituents if I did not work an they
wished they could hang me. These are
reasons for taking this step, though i rea
lize I will be accused all over the territory
of selling out. I hate to take the action,
hated in the beginning to enter into auy
agreement. I was forced to do it and was
forced against my own wishas nnd the
wishes of my constituency.
Mr. Merten I move tho previous ques
tion. Mr. Daniels I rise to a point of order.
A vote on reconsideration is out of order.
The bill is out of order.
Chair sustained the point of ordor.
Mr. Terrill My motion is to reconsider
the motion on reconsideration.
Mr. Merten read the rule for the ben
