An Exciting Discussion in tlio Sen
ate Tariff Debate in the House
The Work of Congress.
"Washington, May ID. In the Senato
to-day Hale, from the rommittcc on ap
propriations, reported back tho annual
naval nppiopriation bill. The silver bill
was then taken up, and Dolph addressed
ethSenate.IIo thought that international
action was desirable in considering tho
various plans proposed, and was satis
fied that the plans recommended by the
secretary of the Treasury were open to
less and to fewer objections than any of
the others. The purpose was to keep
Itotli gold and silver coin in circulation.
Ho argued against tho free coinage of
silver as something that would stop tho
coinage of gold, but remarked that
what he said in regard to free coinage
did not, of course, apply to free coinage
under an international agreement es
tablishing a ratio letwcen gold and sil
ver. At tho close of Dolph's speech,
Teller criticised it and said that it would
not do for the Senator, or any other
Senator, to say with unction that he
was for a double standard, or for Silver,
and then to favor measures which were
absolutely destructive of silvei as
money, lie did not propose that the
country should be deceived into
believing that tho proposition which
came from the finance committee meant
silver at all. On the contrary, it ireant
the single gold standard.
Mitchell expressed dissent from the
views expressed by his colleague
(Dolph), saying in part: "Tho two
btate conventions that recently met in
Oregon each resolved unanimously,
without any hesitation or equivocation,
that they were in favor of free and un
limited coinage of silver. I believe
each of those conventions was com
posed of representative men of their
respective parties in our state. I be
lievo that in adopting these resolutions
they voiced the sentiment almost uni
versally of the people of Oregon, and
therefore I do not desiro it to go out

tion vulcei the whole of tho sentiment

of that state are concerned on this

After an executive session, tho Senate
Washington, May 10. Tho House
went into Committee of tho AVhole on
tho tariff bill. Wilson, of West Vir
ginia, asked jHoyno if ho endorsed
Campbell's letter, so far as they ap
plied to him (Wilson). Boyne denied
that ho intended any reflection on either
llynttm or Wilson.
"The House, in committee, then pro
ceeded to a consideration of the tariff

ot Missouri, regret toil that tho amend
ment emanated from tho Republican
side and optKised it. Hopkins, of Illi
nois, contended that the importation of
Mexican ores was a blessing to Ameri
can miners, as well as to the working
men enraged in smelting, and, in tho
name of American labor, he protested
against tho proviso, which would con
trol tho output of American miners.
Crain, of Texas, sai-' that lead and sil
ver in tho proviso were illustrative of
the illogical sequence of protection,
namely the prohibition of imortntions.
The adoption of the proviso in tho bill
meant ruin to all frontier towns and in
calculable injury to American capital
invested in Mexico. Dulwis, of Idaho,
objected to Hopkins jKwing as a repre
sentative of the miner. No word in fa
vor of free lead was ever heard from tho
representative! of the miners. Tho
amendment struck a blow not only nt
the miner but at the silver producers.
1'erkiin. of Kansas, protested against
tho amendment as putting tho Ameri
can minor in competition with the Mex
Towns-end, of Colorado, said that tho
amendment was in the interest of Mex

Kerr, of Iowa, favored tho repeal of

round match with four ounce gloves 1k
tween Peter Jackson, tho colored Aus
tralian champion, who is to fight John
L. Sullivan, nnd Ed. Smith, champion
of Colorado. Much interest was taken
in the question of Smith's ability as
against Jackson, owing to the fact that
tho Colorado man has been trained by
Sullivan's noted helper, Muldoon, the
wiestler, and to the further fact that
Smith recently knocked out Mike Clerey
in one round. Smith made a decidedly
good showing against the big colored
man, standing up live rounds without
suffering a knock out. Smith appeared
timid in the first round, and was lloored
three times, but in the second round ral

were groggy when the combat ended.

IT IS A DEATH BLOW.
The Mormons Strike the
And Are Knocked Out by
Chief Justice Fuller nnd tlio Demo
cratic Justices Dissent from the
Opinion Common Law.
AVamiinoton, May 19. The Unit
ed States Supreme Court to
day rendered an opinion of
vital interest to tho Mormon
church, in a suit of the Church of Lat
ter Day Saints against the United States,
which came here on appeal from a de
cission of tho Supreme Court of Utah in
favor of tlio United States.
In its opinion tho Court says:
'The distinguishing feature of Mor
monisin is well known to be
polygamy and absolute ccclcaiastia
control of its church members. Not
withstanding all efforts to supprcbi this
barbarous practice, tho church persists
in defiance of law, in practicing nnd
promoting this nefarious doctrine. The
question therefore is whother tho pro
motion of such nu unlawful system, so
repugnant to our Inws is to be allowed
to continue, and whether enormous
funds which have been accumulated,
shall be wielded for the propogation of
the obnoxious doctrines and for the
promotion of organized rebellion against
the laws of the United States.
"Thehistorvof thegovernment's deal
ing with the Mormons is one of patience
on the part of the government and of re
sidence to law and pitilebs atrocities on
the part of the Mormons. The conten
tion that polygamy is part of the Mor
mon's religious belief, is a sophistical
plea. There is no doubt that
the thugs managed their sys
tem of assassination as a religious
belief, but that did not make it so.
Society haa a perfect right to prohibit
offences against enlightened public
sentiment." After an elaborate his
torical review of common law, the court
says: "Congress had licfore it a con
tumacious organization, wielding by its
resources an immense power in the Ter
ritory of Utah and employing those re
sources in constantly attempting to op
pose, subvert and thwait the legislation
of Congress and the will of the Govern
ment of the United States. Under such
circumstances we have no doubt of the
right of Congress to do as it did. The
decree of the lower court is affirmed."
Justice Bradley delivered theoninon.
Chief Justice Puller said that himself
and Justices Field and Lamar were con
strained to dissent. Congress unques
tionably has power tosuppress iwlygainy
and it is immaterial whether the crime
was committed in the name of religion
or not, but Congress has not the power
to seize and confiscate the property of
corporations because they may have
lteen guilty of crime.

of tlio Eric Railway nt San Francisco,

contended thnt the law was unconstitu

tention, and reversed the judgement of
the lower, court, remanding the case
with directions to enter a new

From this story it would appear that
the death of Fleming grew out of Lo

the two, previously, and it is stnted that
about July 20, 1889, Logan told Fleming
that he had better desert or he would
regret it. At that time the Sergeant
stated, that if Fleming did go, ho
(Logan) would give him the advantage
of five day's start by not reporting him
