WABnrXGTOX, Dec 12. A number of un
important bills were reported from tbo
committees and placed on the calendar.
Mr. Plumb's resolution for daily meet
ing" nt 10 a. ra., and for evening sessions
was taken up.
Mr. Hoar moved to amend the resolution
by striking out the clause for evening ses
Bions, and making it take effect after to
morrow, so as to have the resolution to
provide only for the earlier daily sessions.
The amendment was agreed to, and then
the rcbolution was agreed to without
Mr. Dolph introduced a resolution for
reference to tbo committee on privileges
and elections, for investigation into elec
tions in certain states of the south. What
he wanted to ascertain was whether some
states had not provided in their laws fcr
Buch voting qualifications as were not per
mitted by the United States constitution,
lie stated that Mississippi had included in
its constitution a provision that would
abridge representation, lie knew the
state had the power to so provide, but not
in contradiction to tbo national laws.
Mr. Vest moved an amendment mstruct-
inc the committee to luuuirc whether by
any states legislation, any citizen of the
United states were cionieu me ngnt lo
work on auv public improvement by rea
son of their color. That was a greater
right, he said, than the right of eullrage.
The Republican state of Oregon, he said,
had denied neeroes the richt of working
on nublic improvements. Whatever
might be said of tho Democratic states,
none of them had ever denied to a negro
tho right to cam his bread by his owu
Governor Tillman's message to the
South Carolina legislature was referred
to. osneciallv that nart of it which stated
that the whites were in control and in

Mr. Butler said he would endorse that
Mr. Dolph said ho was informed by n
gentleman on his side of the chamber that
Mr. Butler had threatened to discharge
negroes in his employ if they dared to vote
the Republican ticket.
Mr. Butler replied that whoever made
the statement was guilty of a deliberate,
Mr. Hoar said ho had read that state
ment in the testimony of tho senator from
South Carolina before a committee of the
other bouse. '1," said Mr. Hoar, "made
the statement myself to the senator from

Jhat I made, and it applies to the senator
Mr. Hoar said that if there was any mis
take about the matter, he was responsible
The incident went no further.
The resolution went over without ac
tion. Tho election bill was then taken up, and
Mr. Blodgett snoko against it.
Mr. Walthall also argued against it.
At tho conclusion of Mr. Walthall's re
marks, Mr. Hoar called attention to the
lx marks mndo t oday by Mr. Butler, suit
ing that auy one who said ho had threat
ened to dismiss colored people from his
employment if they should vote the Re
publican ticket was guilty of a deliberate
and willful falsehood. He sent to the
clerk's desk and had read tho oflicial re
porter's manuscript of what took place,
"A rule of my life, long since formed,
1 es not permit me to reply to the senator
frnn South Carolina in such language ts
bethought proper to utter. Whether I
should ho guilty of a deliberate and will
ful falsehood about a matter contained in
u public document, will bo settled in tbo
estimation of those who know me. 1 will
read for the information of the senate from
the document to which I referred."
Mr. Hoar then read from the report in
i Inch the statement had beon made ' y
the senator from South Carolina, in 1S70,
that was credited to him by Mr. Hoar.
Mr. Butler replied that tho testimony
quoted was a garbled statement. Ho had
never seen the report and did not now
recollect of having appeared boforo tho
committee in 1S70 or auy other time. Ho
repeated that be had never threatened to
discharge uegrocs from his employ who
voted the Republican ticket.
Mr. Hoar gave assurances that he was
HHtisfiod with Mr. Butler's statcmont aud

satisfaction of tho senators concerned aud

THE WORLD'S FAIR.
W !'HMiTOX, Dec 11. Hon. Thomas
V, I' aimer, president, aud Hon. Benju
mm Buttcrworth, secretary, ot the world's
f.i r commission, aud F. V. Peek, of the
local directory, waited on the president
t!..s morning, and requested that he issue
the formal proclamation inviting foreign
governments to participate in the world's
lair. They submitted documents to prove
that all tho requisite conditions prescribed
by tht act ot congress had beon fully com
rwicl with. These requirements are,
but fly, that the grounds and buildings are
irovided for: that the Illinois corporation
lis secured the required $10,000,000, aud
that the necessary rules and regulations
hive been prepared. The presideut re
ceived them cordially and assured them
that the proclamation would be promul
gated as soou as the necessary formalities
can be complied with.
VARlNGTON,;Dec.;i2. The reapportlon
rrnt bill based upon a representation o
85G members of the house of repreenta
tes, as originally proposed by Mr. Frank,
tf Missouri, was favorably acted upon bv
the house committee on census, aud it wifl
be reported to the house today. The
Kgremoat to report the 1)411 was unani
tnous. although Messrs. Hohnun and Till
man reserved the right to vote for a differ
ent number than 356. The only vote taken
was on a motion made by Mr. Holman to
fix the number at 332, and it found no
second. Mr. Tillman is in favor of a house
composed of 500 or 600 members and a sen
ate of six members from each state, and
and will probably make a speech in sup
port of his views when the reapportion
ment bill comes up.
The report of the census committee on
reapportionment was presented to tho
house today. Mr. Dunnell explained the
changes that will be effected and said that
from the aggregate population of tho
United States the committee had sub
tracted the aggregate population of the
district of Columbia and of the territory of
Oklahoma and Utah. This left 61,903,930.
With this number difierent ratios were
obtained by taking as a divisor any pro
posed number. Each number was taken
from C32 to 375. Trials were made until a
number was found that would give a ratio
which, in application, would secure each
state against any lossiu its membership
and iu no instance leave a major fraction.
This number was found to be. 336. The
ratio was 173,001. The number of members
obtained on an even division was 339. Th8
additional seventeen needed to make 356
were secured by giving another member to
each of the states having left to it a major
THE STEAMSHIP SUBSIDY.
Washington. Dec 12. The shipping
subsidy bill which the house committee
on merchant marine and fisheries has or
dered reported to the house with a favor
able recommendation, is more comprehen
sive than tho senate subsidy bill for which
it is intended as a substitute.
The bill provides subsidies for steam
vessels which are to carry United States
mails, not exceeding eleven knots when
loHded, and for sailing vessels, of 10 cents
par ton for the first 5U0 miles of the dis
tance sailed outward and inward: 10 cents
for the second 500 miles, and 20 cents for
each 1,000 miloa or fraction thereof, and
pro rata for each additional 1,0 0
miles or fraction thereof. Tho pay
ments are to continue for ten years at
tho rates prescribed and subsequently at
reduced rates. In case any steam vessel at
tains a higher rate of speed than eleven
knots per hour, nhm loaded, the payments
per ton are to be considered higher. No
vessel is to be entitled to the benefits of
this act unless its entire cargo has been
loaded at a port in the United States and
discharged at a foreign port, or unless a
cargo is shipped ut a foreign port and dis
charged at a United States port.
Tho most important provision of the bill
directs th.it all bteam vessels intended to
be entitled to the benefit of the bill shall
be structurally adapted to conversion into
auxilliary cruisers or transports for the
navy service. All vessels receiving sub
sidies must carry the mails when required
by thepostmastergeneral and for all mails
carried in this manner the postmaster gen
eral will be required to turn into the treas
ury an amount equal to their sea and in
THE INDIAN TROUBLE.
Washington, Doc. 12. Gen. Schofield
received a telegram this morning from
Gen. Brooke, through Gen. Miles at Chi
cago, saying that a few of the Indians in
the Bad Lands hud broken away and were
moving north-across tho Cheyenne river,
but that the troops are on their trail and
hope soon to intercept them.
Chicago, Dec 12. The following dis
patch has been received nt army head
quarters from Gen. Brooke, in command
at Pine Ridge Agency, S. D.:
"From reports received, I am of the
opinion that Two Strike and all the other
chiefs are coming in from White river.
Short Bull and Kicking Bear, with a small
following, broke away and went hack into
the Bad Lands. I think it likely they will
go north. I have notified all troops north
and west. There was quite a fight, and
somo Indians hurt. I shall try to got them
in here, but they mav get beyond reach."
Foirr Kkogh, Mont., Dec. 12. Two
bands of disaffected Pine Ridge Indians
under Short Bull and Kicking Bear are
supposed to bo uniting and moving north
ward to find a reservation in North Da
kota or of crossing over into Canada. Fifty
iodges and a band of stolen ponies are
with them. Troops have gone in pursuit.
Every effort will be made to prevent their
joining their friends at Poplar Run
PlEiU'.E, S. D., De. 12. White Swan,
head chief of tho Minnekanju tribe of
Sioux, at Cheyenno agency, came here to
day to secure government advice as to tno
best means to disarm Big Foot's band of
Cherry creek hostiles, stating that his
band of iKX) were ready to assist in the dis
armament. He has been active in sup
pressing t he Messiah excitement. He says
the Indians are suffering from la grippe,
contracted while dancing in the cold uir,
and it was causing many deaths.
THE NEWARK'S SECOND TRIAL.
Washington. Dec 12. The cruiser
Newark has again failed on her trial trip.
A telegram received at tho navy depart
ment states that the Newark, on her sec
ond trial, after running satisfactorily for
three hours, broke several bolts of the
radical valve of the low-pressure cylinder
of her starboanl engine. New bolts will
be put iu, and another trial commenced on
Saturday. On her first trial the Newark
failed to make the necessary horse power.
Today, the vessel, according to the patent
logs, averaged nineteen and throe-quarter
knots per hour, aud the estimated horse
power developed was about D.000, or 500
more than the contract called for. The
trial, it is said, would have been highly
successful but for tho exasperating acci
dent to the machinery.

DISEASES OF LIVE STOCK.
Washington, Dec 12. The report of the
chief of the bureau ot" nrimal industry
savs the year has passed without the dis
covery ot pleuro-pneumonia in any new
district. The department's regulations
have been enforced without uilhculty.
No cases have been discovered in New
York, except on Long Island: none in
Pennsylvania; none in Maryland since
October, 15SS: New Jersey has improved
rapidlv, and there is no contagion in any
other states. T e efficiency of the depart
ment methods is demonstrated by the fact
that the disease has been confined to the
restricted areas on the Atlantic seaboard
which have from the fitst been recognized
as infected. With the almost complete
eradication of the contagion, the danger of
any infection extending to any oth
er sections has practically disap
peared. The total expenses of the
work during the rear have been: In New '
York, $174,972, of which $71,701 was spent
for the purchase of cattle as diseased or
exposed; in New Jersey, ?60,82S, of which
12.896 was spent for cattle: in Maryland,
$38,558, of which $1,214 was spent for cattle;
grand total, $274,339, of which $85,150 was
spent for cattle. Including all the dis
tricts in which pleuro-pneumonia has ex
isted, there was Inspected 83,087 herds of
cattle, containing 2S3.599 animals. Of
these 199,597 were re-examined and E4.9S3
tagged and registered. There were about
159 new herds dl-covered infected with the
disease during the year, containing 8,312
animals, of which 230 were pronounced
diseased. There were purchased for
slaughter 676 affected cattle, at an average
of $26.19 per head: aggregate, $17,704, and
3,033 exposed cattle at an average of $22.36;
The number of the affected cattle during
the past year was 724; the number the year
previous, 2134; the number of affected
herds last year, 159; the year before, 379
The decrease in the number of cattle
slaughtered has been steady ever since the
work of eradicating the disease began.
During the month of October, 1890, no
cases of disease was found, and the bureau
draws the conclusion from those facts that
the time is approaching rapidly when
pleuro-pneumonia will be entirely eradi
cated in the United States. Concerning
the regulations established at the time of
the discovery of Texas fever, the report
says that these have not been extended
east of the Mississippi river. There is no
doubt, however, that the Gulf and South
Atlantic states are infected with this dis
ease to the 'same degree as Texas, and
there should be the same regulation of
cattle coming from them. The effect of
the regulations established in the west has
been extremely beneficial. But a small
amouut of the disease has been reported
either in the United States or among cat
tle shipped abroad. The losses during
oecan voyages havo been so much less
than usual that hiurauce is said to have
been icduced over 50 per cent.
This, if true, means a saving to shippers
of more than $2,000,000. The fears ex
pressed by some writers that Texas fever
wiM be introduced iu Great Britain by
American cattle, says tho report, is based
on ignorance of the character of the dis
ease. From its nature, this would be im
possible, the chief reasons being the regu
lations established by the secretary of ag
riculture for the inspection of cattle for
export, imported cattle and sheep, aud
salted bacon. The report bays that' there
is no foot and mouth disease in the United
Stales and there has been none since 1&S.
An examination of the disease whioh pre
vailed in Missouri, and which was report
ed by the state veteriuerian to be foot and
mouth disease, proved to be different from
the disease of Europe. The scientific work
of the bureau during the year has been
confined to Texas fever and the infectious
diseases of swine. With both very im
portant results have been obtained. Con
cerning the latter the report says that the
interest in the investigation of bacterial
products is increased oy the announce
ment of Prof. Koth that he has discovered
a remedy for tuberculosis. If Prof. Koch's
remedy is of the nature supposed, says the
report, his method consists in the applica
tion of a principle discovered here. The
bureau has been endeavoring to produce
artificially a drug having the same com
position and effects as the bacterial
products, but produced at- less expense
aud without danger of contamination with
the deadly germs which emise tho disease.
These researches have oeen to a great ex

British consul at this place, lately under

Englishman) who was convicted of burg
lary in Houston. His efforts iu behalf of
the burglar have resulted in the following
correspondence which bids fair to cost Mr.
Lyall his official head. On November 8,
Governor Ross wrote to Secretary Blaine,
enclosing the papers in the Kelly case, to
gether with Consul Lyall's letter, and
closed with these remarks:
"I respectfully suggest that the enclosed
letter is of such a character as to call for
action, by the United States authorities,
with a view of withdrawing his exequatur.
Entertaining the views expressed, his
further official relations with the people of
this state are calculated to disturb the
friendship aud comity existing between
this and the British government. A num
ber of letters received from him have been
wanting in that tone of proper respect
which should obtain from a foreign
consul to the executive of a state; but I
havo hitherto passed them over as un
worthy of notice But the present assault
on the integrity of our judiciary, and the

Dublin, Dec. 12. An anti-Parnell edi
tion of the United Ireland was issued this
morning from the office of the Nation, T.
D. Sullivan's paoer. It contained an arti
cle written by Mr. Beck for the destroyed
editor. The article is addressed, in
O'Briens name, to every true lover of Ire
land in the world, and declares that the
sole alternative is home rule, and that
home rule is impossible under Parnell's
AParnell edition of the paper was also
issued from the regular office.
A wagon loaded with copies of the anti
Parnell edition of United Ireland was
driven to the King's Bridge railway sta
tion today, it being the intention to load
them on a train for distribution in. the
south of Ireland. As the wagon drew up
at the station two men, one of whom had
his face covered with a mask, and the
other with a drawn revolver in his hand,
sprang upon the vehicle, and compelled
the driver to proceed with his load to the
Island bridge. When they arrived upon
the bridge, the two men flung all the
papers into the Libby river.
An attempt was made to seize a second
wagon loaded with the papers, which was
standing at the entrance to the depot: and
it probably would have proved successful
had not the police interfered to protect the
driver. Under their guard, the papers
were loaded upon the train. It is stated
that the new paper of the anti-Parnell

Journey to Paris.
New York, Dec. 12. Messrs. O'Brien

ations to sail for France early tomorrow
morning. The rest of the party will re
main here a week or two before deciding
what to do. Harrington will sail tomor

Before embarking this evening, Mr.
"In Boulogne we will be met by a party
of our friends, and will then proceed to
Paris. All our colleagues, except Mr.
Harrington, are agreed as to theobjectand
scope of our action. Its object, in one
word, is to save the general election with
out inflicting humiliation or injustice on
anyone. It would be dangerous to ex
pect too much from it. We are painfully
aware of the difficulties, but we have the
strongest reliance ou our supporters.
Evorybody knows that any prolonged pe
riod of dissention in Ireland wou'd be
madness; aud the only result would be
that wo (meaning the anti-Pur'.elhtes)
would have a triumphal majority over our
opponents. Our hope and heliet is that the
overpowering sentiment of Irishmen the
world over is for peace at all events. He
believes solemnly that Mr. Parnell's re
tention of tho leadership would involve
the certain destruction of our alliance,
and defeat at the polls. As the terms on
which Parnell and myself would not meet,
I do not anticipate any difficulty on either
side. One of the objects of our journey to
Paris is to communicate with Mr. Mc
Carthy and our colleagues in the majority.
We have every rea-on to believe, just now,
that Mr. McCarthy and his colleagues are
of the same mind as ourselves; that we
should stop at no effort that good will can
suggest, to save the general elections and
restore the unity of the party."
THE KILKENNY FIGHT.
KlLKEXNT, Dec. 12. In the course of a
conversation today Mr. Davitt said the
present struggle in Kilkenny was the
most important event in the last decade of
Ireland's history. If Parnell wins home
rule was doomed. Parnell would either
ruin Ireland or himself. A meeting was
heln m the town hall this evening to form
a committee to carry ot a vigorous cam
paign for Sir Jonn Pope Hennessy, the
auti-Parnelhte candidate. He was well
received bv the crowd.
LoNDON,Ded. 12. The Times, referring
to the Kilkenny campaign, says the efforts
of tne pnests to obtain a cheer for Davitt,
utterly failed, and Heal, on arriving,
was vigorously groaned aud surrounded by
a menacing mob, which wou d probably
have handled him roughly, but for
the police, who held them back
and enabled him to reach a car. A
man attempt ed to strike him, when a
clergyman struck him with his umbrella.
Arriving at his hotel. Healy tried to ad
dress tne crowd, ont his voice was drowned
by their yelling. Hely exclaimed: "Who
paid you for this?" and was answered
with cheers for Parnell, and more groans.
He retorted by houung: "Three cheers
for Mrs. O'Shela." Davitt was subsequent
ly received with cheers, the booting and
groans proceeding only from boys.
When Pmeil arrived at Kilkenny to
night a torchlight prooa&sion was waiting
for him. It escorted him to his hotel,
where he addressed the c wd briefly. He
will pwik at Limerick sanaay, returning

Kansas Citv, Ma, Dec. 12. A party
composed of three Mexicans and one
American, arrived here today from the
City of Mexico to engage in the study of
pork packing and manufactures connected
therewith. The names of the students are:
P. Promirez, G. Quaintinilla, Enrique
Torres and P. Randolph, a Virginian.
Mr. Randolph, in an interview, stated
tonight that the Mexican government
would surely pass a bill retaliating upon
the United States for the MoKinley bill,
which would exclude American pork
products from the Mexican republic. In
anticipation of this exclusive tariff Mr.
Randolph and his associates had come to

TBADE AND TEAPPIO. " "
The Business Condition of the Country as
Eevealed by Dun's Weekly Eeview.
New York. Dec 12. R. G. Dun & Ca's
Weekly Review of Trade says:
"The business outlook is hopeful; but,
on account of past disturbances, continued
uncertainty is felt. There is a reduced
volume of business throughout the coun
try, which, however, is slightly larger
than a year ago. The increase until re
cently maintained does not appear during
the past week. The south reports a fair
business in spite of the continuous deoline
in cotton The supply of money is ample
for necessary purposes nt New Orleans;
but at other points money is tight, though
banks help their customers as far as possi
ble, but in legitimate business only. At
the west cold weather has helped trade.
The general business in the west is iu a
healthy condition and fairly active. Chi
cago's business continues much lareer
than last year, being but little affected by
eabteru troubles Business is also good at
Kansas City and St. Louis.
'The iron industry is in better condi
tion than a week ago, and woolen manu
facture is decidedly better. There is a
waiting market for knit goods, and a
shrinking demand for dress goods. The
cotton manufacture is less satisfactory,
and some works have suspended produc
tion. "The speculative markets have not beon
very active, but wheat has risen li cents,
corn 2 cents, and oats K cent. Pork is
unchauged, aud cotton a sixteenth lower.
Oil is '2.i cents lower, and coffee of a
cent lower. The rise in breadstuffs is
not sustained. Tin has risen i of a cent,
but copper is of uncertain price.
"The most significant fact in the money
situation is the fact that a very large por
tion of the money was taken in gold by
tho seller of bonds, presumably for with
drawal until silver legislation is accom
plished by congress. The commercial
troubles, outside of tho money stringency,
have been caused by over-purchases in
anticipation ot a great rise in values.
These purchasers have been disappointed,
and find themselves embarrassed.
"The business failures during the past
week number 374. as compared with 312
last week, aud iS0 for the corresponding
week of hist year."
A JAIL BIBD LTBEBATED.
The Anthony Jail Bfokanlnto and a Horse-"
thief Turned Loose.
Special Dispatch to the Daily Eacl.
AXTHOXY, Kan., Dec. 12. About 4
o'clock this morning, a half dozen men
got into the court house corridor, and af
ter cutting away the sash in the transom
over the jail door, they took off the nuts
from the bolts holding the bars on the in
side of the transom, and then two of them
got into the jail. They then broke a pad
lock, which secured the door of the cage,
and let the prisoners out. John Ireton,
the one they wanted to liberate, went with
them, and no doubt got into the territory
iu quick time. The two other prisoners
who were there one for murder, and one
an accomplice of Ireton in horse stealing
refused to go, although nothing prevented
them. No trace has been found of Iretou
yet. Ireton was in for horse stealing, and
belongs to a gang that operated between
the state and territory.

Pittsburg, Kan., Dec 12. Special.
Visitors to Pittsburg are astonished at the
wonderful growth of the town. Within
the past six months two new zinc smelters
of eicht furnaces each, with a capacity of
40,000 pounds per day; a silver smelter with
a capacity of 100 tons of ore per day, a vit
rified brick plant with a capacity of fiO.ttW
bricks per day, and a gravel roofing con
cern with a daily capacity of 1,000 square
yards, have been completed thus adding
over three hundred men to the bucket
brigade of the city.
Pittsburg i destined to be one of the
greatest smelting towns in America, be
cause of her cheap coal. Forty-five coal
