certain classes of pensions wero reduced.
The bouse committee on naval affairs to
day practically completed the naval appro
priation bill and it will probably be reported

ates about $11,750,000, while tho estimates
submitted by the navy department contem
plated an expenditure of $30,83G,357 the
appropriations for tbo current year is 1G,
OlO.TOu. Tho striking discrepancy apparent
b&twexn the appropriation for the next year
and the estimates of tho department is ex
plained by the fact that all of tbo items in

for its purpose tho proposition that Ameri

far as congress can control it.
Tbo committee on public lands in this
congress, as in tbo last, is thoroughly com
mitted to the policy of so administering
our public land system that tbe agricultural
lands of the nation shall not be parted with
without tlicy aro held by actual settlers.

of land aro held by foreigners. Tho bill,

Stales, nor any corporation, one-tenth of
whose stock is owned or controlled by aliens
or foreigners shall have tho right to acquire
real estate in any ol tho territories of tho

Tbo StMtn Island bridro bill was then
laid before tho senate and Mr. Mcl'herson
resumed his speech agninst tho bill and in
support cf his amendment providing for a
tunnel instead of a bridge.
Mr. Fryo favored tho bridgo bill and said
of courto any bridge at tbe point indicated
would somewhat interfere with the water
route, but tho great advantage to the com
merce ol the whole country, especially of
tbo west, hi- the buildingofthe bridge would
mere than amply compensate for the loss to
commerce on the water route. Sailing ves

was propottM to bridge.
Mr. A est said the jieoplo of tho country

that had taken place in tho transportation
business of tbo country. Tho strugglo in the

Mr. Mcl'herson remarked, that if other
companies in tba future wanted the sruo
privilege this would bo taken to be a prece

nsaiiist the building cf any bridges at all.
Would Mr. Mcl'herson "have no brieges
built at ait! The steamboat interests of tbe
Mississippi river had opposed the bnilding
of the Su Louis bridgo and prophesied the
destruction of tha commerce of that river.
Even the engineer had hold a convention
and declared the St. Louis bridgo would bo
'a failure as engineering work; yet It was
standing and n ould stand, apparently, as
long as the banks of the river.
At 2 o'clock tho bankruptcy bill was
placed before tbe senate and temporarily
laid aside to permit further consideration of
tho bridge Ml!.
Mr. Dolph spoke in support of tbe bridge.
Mr. Sewell and Mr. Edmunds opposed the
Mil. The latter said he hoped and believed
some of us would live to see tbe establish
ment of an internal water way that would
extend nil tho way to Xew Orleans, and he
believed this little stream, the' Arthurkill,
was the key to such a water way.

if the bridgo bo not commenced witbin two
years the ngbt to build shall cease and ter
minate. Mr. Mcl'herson's amendment (for a tun
nel insterd of n.bridRe) was rejected yeas
5, nays 40. The senators voting in the af
firmative were: Bowen, Hampton, McPhcr
son. Plumb and Sewell.
Mr. Vocrbees as a. western man could not
vote to shut out railroad competition from
the west to tbe ocean. lie thought the at
tempt of a railroad company to get to ew
York Citv a move which could only retail
in advantage to the west and east alike.
After further debate the voting down of
tomo amendments the bill was passed as
received from tho committee, with the sole
addition of Mr. Vest's amendment.
The roll call on one of tbe amendments
disclosed the fact that no quorum voted; bat

THE SECOND DAY.
Of the New Famous Prellor-Max-well
Murder Case at St. Louis.
St. Louis. May 20. Tho first witness in
the Maxwell case this morning was a barber,
John A. Anno, doing business at o. 15,
North Broadway, near tho Southern hotel.
Maxwell came to his shop between C and 7
o'clock on tbo evening of April 6tb, 1886.
His hair and beard wero both very long. He
asked to havo the former trimmed and tbe
latter shaved off. The barber did this.
Maxwell them asked him if anyone could
recognize him if he had known him when
his hair and beard were long. The witness
told kim such a thing would be impossible
and Maxwell seemed pleased at the assur
ance. The prisoner bad talked like a par
rot ail the time ho wa in tho shop and told
lots of stories about hi.r.self. Ho said ho
was going into tbe country for a day or two
but would soon return.
Tho counsel for the prifoi.e r in the cross
examination tried to show that Maxwell had
evinced no uneasiness and seemed uncon
scious as to whether or not his having been
shaved had altered his appearance, but the
answers to his questions showed that tbe
contrary had been the caso. The prisoner
looked nervously round whenever anyone
entered the room. lie was continually
slipping down in the chair as if to not at

The prisoner wanted to borrow $25 on a
watch chain. The witness refused to loan
him so much. Tbe prisoner tried to tell
him some other articles, saying be must have
money. On Monday after Easter Sunday
the prisoner called again and purchased a
flute for $8 and a set of diamonds paying
for them with a $100 bill which he selected
from a roll of bills of tho same denomina
tions. The witness noticed nothing unusual
in tho prisoner's talk or action on the
Albert Sales, an optician, testified that the
prisoner accompanied by some ono whom
be did not know, called at bis place of busi
ness and wished to sell a magic lantern out
fit Maxwell wore a black moustache and
be thought be would recognize him if bo
shouldseo him again. Ho identified a pho
tograph of Preller's friend. Some days af
terward tbe prisoner bought from the wit
ness a pair of field glasses and a manicure
set, tendering in payment for tbe same a
$100 bill. Ho drew a largo roll of money
from his pocket when he paid tbo bill.
Frederick Berger, a trunk maker, testified
that the prisoner had bought from him a

from around tho trunk in which Preller's
body was found were brought in and identi
fied by witness as those sold to the prisoner.

were parts of the tray. He said they were
not, but said tbey were pieces off another
trunk, tbe packiug case had no tray. The
zinc trunk in which Preller's body was
found was bought before tbe witness who
was asked to tell as an expert whether the
tray had ever belonged in it.
Mr. Fountlcroy, counsel for tho defense,
objected to expert testimony on the point,
but his objection was overruled, and witness
answered it was. Exception was taken to
the ruling. The point was an important
one, as tbo tray and partition was found in
tbe packing case.
a William Frum, a Southern hotel porter,
recognized tbo truuks (bought from Berger)
as thoso he bad carried to the prisoner's
room on the same day they were bought.
When bo entered tbe room, the zink trunk
was in the middle of the floor, and clothes
were scattered about and heaped in piles.
Ho lifted one end of the zinc trunk to see if
it was packed, and thought it weighed 170
or ISO pounds a heavy weight for a trunk
of that size. The occupant of the room, the
prisoner, ordered him to take down tbe can

Kaksas Cnr, May 20. A Tombstone,
A. T., special says: The number of persons
murdered by the Apache within gunshot of
Xogales, Arizona, during tbo past lour
weeks now numbers forty-two. Tbe size of
the raiding bands and their boldness leaves

depredations this summer from Apaches ever
known. There are strong fears hero if the

Ukw York, May 20. Alderman Jaehne
was this morning sentenced by Judge Bur
nett to nine years and ten months imprison
ment at Sing Sing.
The court of oyer and terminer was filled
this morning with a .crowd anxious to hear
Judge Barnett pronounce the sentence upon
Alderman Henry W. Jaehne, convicted of
bibcry in connection with tho Broadway
railroad franchise. Tbe district attorney
moved for tbe sntnce to be passed on tbe
prisoner. General Prior, Jaehno's counsel
then made motions for tho arrests of judg
ment and a new trial, but both were denied.
Jaehne then stood up for sentence In reply
to a question 01 toe cierir, ne gave nis age as
tbirly-six. He was asked what he had to
say why iudirmcnt should not bo pro
nounced airainst him according to law. He
madono reply. Judge Bamett then sen
tenced tho prisoner to nine years and ten
months in tho state penitentiary. Ho said
the prisoner bad been convicted after a fair
trial; had had every advantage that a defend
ant could have, together with ablo counsel.
The case was a sad one. It was a humiliat
ing spectacle. But no man was over selected
to fill a public office in this city wbo bad so
heinously bctraved the trust a tho prisoner
It was humiliating to the people of tho
city, state and country, that such a specta
cle should bo presented in a freo govern
ment of tho people. It was sad to SM a
man with the prisoner's advantages in tbe
position in which ho now is. "There wns
no doubt as to your guilt. It was unani
mously conceded when the evidence was in
that it was against vou. It was a clear con
viction, overwhelming. There was no
doubt of your guilt but there was a doubt
concerning the chances of convicting you."
The lir.t doubt seems to have arisen from
tbe lack of an efficiency of the jury system,
the zeal of our public prosecutor and the
efficiency of our police. Theso doubts will
be dispelled by your conviction. It teaches
an important lesson. Let rao say that your
offense was not technical bribory, but stu
pendous bribery fer tbe furtherance of a
In conclusion Judge. Barnett said: 'It
only remains now for mo to pass the sentence
in your case. The maximum penalty will
not be imposed. Under the recent statute
where the maximum penalty is abridged,
tbe prisoner has this advactage, that in ad
dition to his commendation for good be
havior, ho can leave the state prison between
the months of March and May. Appeals
have been made to me to be merciful in your
case. I am not unmiudful of the sufferings
of your lamily. No undue severity will j
exercised towards vou. I have therefore in
structed the sheriff not to send you immedi
ately to the state prison. You will be con
veyed to the city prison, where you will
have an opportunity to consult your coun
sel in regard to tbe appeal in your case."
Lawyer Xewcombe. on affidavits made by
himself and Jaehne, containing tbe legal
points raised during the trial andexception
taken, arrived from Judge Daniels' court
with a stay of proceedings and an older to
show cause why astay of proceeding should
not be msde permanent pending the Inal.
The arguments will be beard this afternoon

According to the remission made for pood
conduct, Jaehne will actually have to servo
six years four months and eleven days.
Tho annlirftiinn far a stay of execution of
