AppropriationBills end Conference Reports^The Principal Business
Washington,Feb. a.^In the senate the^house bill for the establishment of a terri^^torial government in Oklahoma was passed.^Piatt moved its reference to the committee^on territories. Dawn* moved Its reference^to the cosimittec on Indian affalra.
1Uw ley offered an amendment to the sun^^dry appropriation bill for the payment to^the widow of General Sheridan oflo.000. The^bouse joint resolution for the payment of^1600,000 to the representatives of the late
JamesH. Kads was taken up and the
amendmenttu the oill reported from toe^committee ou appropriations agreed tn.^They were few and unimportant, the only^noticeable one being that increasing the^the salary of the president's private secre^^tary from 8A260 to ^6 000. An amend^no iit offered by Haw ly to Increase the^clerical force of the civil^service commission provoked s^discussion on the question of civil service^reform, during which Stewart character^^ized (he present aystem as a ^broad farce^^and Plumb said partisanship of the wist^desperate character had been practiced in^Its administration. Kefore the discussion^closed the conference report on the bill^amendatory of the interstate commerce^bill was presented and read, the confer-^enre committee not having agreed k^ the^house amendment In reference to the trans^portatlon of oil. Sherman moved to con^^cur tn that amendment, while Piatt argued^against It The discussion was still tn^progress when Kiddleberger made an at^^tempt to have an executive session, so as to^remove the obligation of secrecy from the^l^r^.^ t-edings on the British extradition^treaty, but a motion to adjourn prevailed,^leaving the conference report and the leg^illative appropriation bill not disposed of,
the ho usb.
Thesenate amendment was concurred^In for the retirement of lien. Win. K. Smith,^with the rank of major of engineers The^house then proceeded to the consideration^of the conference report on the Nicaraguan^canal bill.
Cobbthought the house ahould reject the^report It was not fitting for a great gov-^ermnent llXe the fritted Mates to put^power in the hands of a set of men to go^abroad and get money under false pretence.^There were millions is it to the Incorpora^^tors if the enterprise was successful; there^was to be no loss if it was a failure. He^then proceeded to argue that congress has^no constitutional authority to erect private^business corporations.
Kaynerdefended the action of the con^^ferees in receding from the amendment re^^quiring the printing on the obligations of^Uie company the statement of the govern^^ment's lack of liability. It was an amend^^ment which was intended to kill the bill.^It was Intended to intimidate investors.^He alao justified the action of the house
confereesIn receding from the amendment^requiring that shares, atocka. bonds, cer^titicatea or other security shall be disposed^of equally for cash. It would be ltnposst^ble to raise $7^e0,O00,0OO In cash. Cobb's^suggested the engineers had stated the^canal would cost only aao.000.000. Kayner^said If the engineers said SWUtto.000, It^cost $2tsl,(NJ0,0O0, but even |ao,000,lsJ0 would^was a good deal to raise. Touching the^action of the conferees in receding from^the auieudmetit authorizing the United^States government to fix tolls upon the^canal, Kayner said the rates of toll were^fixed In the concession snd the Nicaraguan^government was to receive a percentage.^Bland, Missouri, criticised the conference^report in that it eliminated from the bill^the amendment which had been adopted In^house upon his motion, reserving to the^government the right to regulate the rate^of Utile There ought to be in the bill a^provision securing the right of the f nited^.Mates under the liulwer-Ciayton treaty.
Pendingfurther debate the house took a^recess, the evening session to be for the^cousideratiou of district business.

Vienna,Feb. 6. -Several people have^been arrested for repeating miners that^the Crown Prince Kudolph met his death at^the hands of the husbaud of a woman he^had betrayed. It Is asserted the crown^prince, In his tast letter to his mother, says^*J cannot live longer.^'
Agreat crowd gathered again this morn^^ing outside of the court chapel awaiting an^opportunity to view the remains of the^crown prince. Perfect order was main^^tained. At a meeting of the council hav^^ing charge of the serial publication of Ku-^dolph's work on Austria-Hungary tteday^Von Szoegyeny Intimated (hat the em^peror was In favor of continuing and OSSj^uleting the work which, he said, would^probably be finished under the patronage^of the crown princess Stephanie.
Theemperor and empress and crown^prlnceas attended requiem mass in the ora^^tory of the palace st which the Miserere^was sang. The court service was ended^at uoon. The church bells then commenced^to toll. The cotim lid was fastened at 2^^'dock and the key was confided to Prince^Hohenlotie, as court marshal. Soon after^^ward the gates of the chapel were closed^and the members of the Imperial family^gut lo re.i around the catafalque to take a^last farewell of the remains. Just before^4 o'clock the members of the Imperial house^stopped in front of the side entrance of the^church, where they were received^by Prince Hohenlohe and the fath^^er guardian, accompanied by friends^of the community hearing lighted tapers.^The Interior of the church was entirely^draped in black. Near the catafalque was^a tabouret for Archbishop Gangihaeter,^who celebrated pontifical mass. To the^right of the main aisle on the epistle side^and opposite the Imperial dais was the prle^dieu for the use of Mousignor (tallml^ertl,^the papal nuncio, aud the other bishops.^On the stroke of four the coffin was lifted^from the bier, blessed aud carried to the^funeral car. The cortege then started^from Hofburg. Vpon reaching Augustine^church the priests ssaembled there placed^themselves at the head of the procession and^were followed by the court and state offi^^cials and municipal authorities. When the^car bearing the body arrived at the cloister^gates Km peror Francis Joseph and the King^and Queen of the Belgians, followed by^other mourners entered the body of the^church. The ministers of the empire,^headed by Count Kalnoky, Count Von^Tsafe and Herr Von Tlsza, and accompa^^nied by the privy couucellors, took up a^position to the right of the ca'afaique; next^to them, nearer tne main entrance, came^varioua deputations. When the services^were over and Just as the chamberlains^were preparing to carry the coffin to the^vault the emperor, stepping to the bier,^knelt in prayer. On arising he waa joined^by Archduke Charles, Prince Francis of^Kate. Prince Leopold of Bavaria and Prince^Philip of Coburg and followed the coffin^to the vault where, aftei a filial bleasing,^Prince Hohenlohe delivered the remains^Into the charge of the father guardian.^The empress,! crown princess, princess^(Hbbsb and Archduchess Marie Valerie did^not attend.

London,Feb. ft. -Another - national^story relative to the death of the Austrian^crown prince comes from Brussels. It Is^asserted that the crown prince became en^tangled In an affair of honor with an Ana^trlan family, and it was decided that the^prince and a son of the family in question^should fight a duel on the so called Ameri^^can plan,on which method dice are thrown^to decide which of the duellists shall com^^mit suicide. The dice were thrown and^Kudolph lost The time specified for the^loser to suicide was three months, and at^the expiration of the period the crown^prince fulfilled his engagement and took^nls own life. The fact that during the^time mentioned Kudolph was apparently^preparing for his coming death, seems to^give color to the foregoing story.
TheMunich correspondent of the Dally^News says he believes t.ie following story^of the Crown Prince Kudolph's death is the^true one; On Tuesday afternoon last a^baroneas, whose name Is not given, but^who Is described as a beautiful girl, came^to Meyerling and took up quarters in the^gamekeeper's house near the castle. ||er^presence waa known only to the game^^keeper and his wife. At midnight, when^Kudolph had dismissed his guests, he vis^^ited her. The crown prince had been about^an hour in the gamekeeper's house when^a forester, equipped for the morning's^chase, going to consult the gamekeeper,^knocked loudly upon the door. The win^^dow was opened and a man jumped out^and Med. The forester fired at the fug;)^tive, who fell and fainted, having been^shot In the shoulder He was recognized^as the crown prince and the^forester hastily summoned help and^carried him into the gamekeeper's house.^The baroneas, thinking Kudolph was dead,^quickly took something from a trsvellug^bag and ^^efore she was noticed fell dead^on the floor. Kudolph revived aud was^taken by his own orders to the castle. His^valet plied him with anxious questions,^hut Kudolph said emphatically ^1 have^fallen and my nose is (deeding; go away; 1^wish to be alone.^ Kudolph then locked^the door and shot himself. The baroness^was burled on Thursday in llerlingenkru^zln convent, where other members of her^family are Interred.
TheJournal Des Desbats, of Paris, has a^similar story, except that It says Kudolph^was mortally wounded by the forester and^died In half an hour and that the game^keeper went Into the woods and shot him^^self. The story of the suicide, It says, was^Invented to hide the truth.
theVl'EHTION of HL'LTEHNJON.
Berlin.Feb. 5 ^The question of the^succession to the Austrian throne is caus^^ing increasing excitement In official and^diplomatic eircleaa. The papers imote go^article from the Italian, the official journal^of Slgnor Crisp!.the Italian prime minister,^declaring the Salic law has been virtually^aboliahed In Austria Hungary; therefore^Crown Prince Kudolph's daughter is heir^to the throne. It is certain Crispi does not
relishthe prospect of the heir of Maderia,^'as disp
should:become the presumptive heir
possessedby the unifiactloti of
tothe throne of Austria ^ Further^^more, both Archduke Karl and his^son Frsi z are ultra -Catholic foes of^the house of Savoy and enemies^of Italian unity and are ardent allies of the^Vatican. Apart from these enemies even if^class interests did not raise the question of^succession, it would be doubtful if official^opinion here would maintain the right of^Km peror Francis Joseph In following the^precedent to declare through an act of suc-^csston Princess Klizabetb heir to the^throne. Advices from IVath say the ques^^tion a ready engages the anxious attention^of the ministers, although no official notice^respecting the succession will be made^until the end of the year.

THERE18 NOTHING IN IT.'
BoSevf Mr Chadbourne In Relation to the Ai-^Isgod Tyranny at Empire
F.M. Chadbourne, of the Kmpire Mining^company, came in from Kmpire last night^snd was asked If there was any founda^^tion for the article In the Butte Mining^Journal which charges the company with^tyrannical methods in dealing with Its em^^ployes by compelling them to spend all^their wages and buy all their goods at a^certain store. Mr. Chadbourne said he^11 ail not seen the article, but heard of it^since he arrived in Helena. He said he^was In no wsy Interested in^the affair and ail.led ^there la nothing in^It^ He stated that the company did not^own the store in the first place. There^was oue store near the mine and another^near the mill, and one of these belonged to^Bach, Cory A Co. of this city. Heceutly^they had been consolidated Into one, hav^^ing been bought up by Helena men, who^still own and conduct them. As there is^but one store in the place, and It carries s^good sUick which U sells at reasonable^prices, it Is but natural that the men should
6othere to buy their goods. That's all^:iere is at^out Uie matter.
