A Profitless Discussion of
the Silver Bill.
The House Wild Over the
After a Loiiff anil Determined Fig-lit
in the House the Measure Passes
by a Strict Party Vote.
"Wamiixoto.v, May 21. At tho open
ing of tho Senate! to-day, tho resigna
tion of Sergeant-nt-arms Canaday was
received and laid on tho table. Tho
silver bill was then taken up, and
Stewart argued that tho demonetization
of silver had depres.-ed the prices of
commodities from 30 to -10 per cent, and
that tho remonetizution would produeo
good times again. Tho object of tho
silver men was to furnish more money,
to stop contraction, to relievo tho debtor
ami producer, and to preserve to tho
people their right of property and lib
erty. Tho Republican party had in
corporated in its national platform a
declaration in favor 1-oth of gold and
silver and had condemned the policy of
the IVinocratie administration in its
ollbrts to demonetize silver. The bill
recommended by tho Secretary of the
Treasury and supported by Senators
Sherman and Dolph was a cunning de
vice to stop the present coinage of !f2,
000,000 a month in silver under tho
island bill. In conclusion ho said that
there was no middle ground in the con
text between usury and justice. Tho
demonetization of silver was a crime
against civilization, and nothing but the
full restoration of that metal to tho
place which it occupied before that
crime was committed could redeem the
pledge of tho Itepublican party.
Eustis asked Stewart if his interpreta
tion of his silver plan of tho Itepublican
platform, that it meant the free coinage
of silver, was the recognized interpreta
tion of his party, and Stewart replied
that it could have no other interpreta
tion. He added, that lie, hinieelf, had
drawn that plunk.
Senator Farwell remarked : "I was a
member of the committee on resolutions
in the last National Itepublican Conven
tion and I desire to express my dissent
to the opinion given by the Senator
from Nevada. No such "interpretation
was considered by that committee."
Stewart said: '"What does it mean?"
To this Farwell answered, "that the
party was in favor of silver money at
the market price of silver. I drew up
the resolution, as tho Senator well
knows, and it was lierfectly honest and
fair. It meant that the government
should buy silver and coin it at the
rate at which it should cost tho govern
ment." Wilson of Iowa, gave notice that he
would oiler an amendment, providing,
that the treasury notes to be issued lii
payment for silver shall lo legal tender
tor all private debts within the United
States. Farwell also gave notico that
he would oiler an amendment provid
ing that the certificates be re-cancelled
for customs, taxes and public debts, and
be legal tender for all public and pri
The silver bill was then laid aside, and
the bill relative to liipior imported into
prohibitory states was again taken up.
Kvarts argued in support of it, and m
answer to the constitutional amend
ments urged against it asserted that
while tho State police regulations exer
cised within a State are outside of the
jurisdiction of the general government,
the liolice regulations of a State coulii
not be lxunbnrded from outside under
cover of an exclusive power of Congress
over commerce. Iliseock opposed tho
bill, which was laid aside without action.
After an executive session, the Senate
Washington, May 21. Tho scene in
the House this morning was confusing
in the extreme. No respect was given
the rules, no attention paid to a recog
nition by the Chairman, and uproar
was the order of the hour. At noon tho
committee rose and reported the tarill'
bill to the House.
The committee's amendment to re
store the present rate on jute yarn was
rejected. Tho ell'ect is to reduce tho
duty 5 per cent bv taking advantage of
a misprint in the bill. This is tho llrst
Democratic victory so far.
Amendments to the tarill" bill in de
tail, changing the phraseology of the tin
plate clause, wcio adopted to-day by n
narrow margin, yeas, 150; nays, 149.
An amendment providing that on
woolen and worsted goods anil all man
ufactured wool and worsted not other-wi-e
provided for, unless not worth more
than ;;u cents per pound, there shall be
imposed a duty three times the duty
imJMiscd on pound unwashed wool, llrst
class, and forty per cent advalorem was
rejected by yeas, 141! j nays, 110. This
leavis duty at twice the 'duty on un
washed wool and forty per cent advalo
rem. The ltepuhlica'us who voted with
the Democrats on the wool and worsted
goods and yam amendments were:
Amlerxoii, of Kansas; Comstock, Dolli
ver, Dumwell, Featherstone, Fleck,
Henderson, of Iowa; Kerr, of Iowa;
Luccy, l.erd, Strubble, Sweenev ami
Taylor, of Illinois.
An amendment imposing a duty of
fifty per cent advalorem on all maun
faciurcs of wool or hair of camel, goat
or like animals anil component material
shall be classified as manufacturer's
wool, was agreed to; yeas, 155;uayH 142.
The vinegar amendment adopted last
night in committee of tho wholo was
adopted ; yeas, 121; nays, 38.
This was the last amendment, and tho
engrossment and third reading of the
bill having been ordered, Mr. Carlisle
oliered the following amentment:
Jlifulml, That the pending bill bo
rw" ended to the committee on ways
and means with instructions to report
the same back to tho House at the ear
liest jKis.sible day, so amended as to re
duce the revenue of the government by
reducing the bunions of taxation on tho
people instead of reducing the duties by
imposing prohibitory rates of taxation
upon imported goods. Democratic
applause. Defeated by a vote of 140 to
104. Republican applause.
Tho tarill bill was then finally passed,
yeas, 10-1 ; nays, 142 ; a strict party vote,

VICTORIA MINERS DEMANDING
."Illno Owners Express a Determination
to Stand 1'lrm for the Old System
Yictoiua, H. C. May 21. It has been
understood for some time past thai a
demand would be made upon the owners
of the Wellington collieries for the instal
lation of the "banksng system" and
a recognition of the grievance com
mittee. The first stipulation requires that the
time of going in and and out of the mine
shall be considered as a part of the work
ing hours. Shifts of eight hours each
and if the time occupied in going to and
from tho levels was considered in tho
working time, it would mean seven
hours actual work per shift.
The comiiiitte waited on Jame
Dunsmvi and Manager Rryden for tho
purpose of making their demands but in
none of the committee were employes
the owners refused to treat with them
but declared their willingness io treat
with their own employes and promised
a fair deal at all times. Monday morn
ing had been determined upon by the
Miners' Association for tho adoption of
the "Ranking system." Those miners
who presented themselves nt the pit
months at tho usual time were sent
down but at 7 o'clock the bars were
drawn and those who came afterwards
understood that this ment no work for
that day. With the exception of no
pull the miners returned to the surface
and no work has been carried on in the
Wellington collieries since.
James Dunsmuir stated that he was
determined to adhere to the stand that
had been taken, and if the miners per
sisted, they were prepared to shut down
the collieries for an indefinite period.
lie regretted exceedingly to do this, but
they would manage their own property
or refrain from developing it.
It is understood a number of tho
agitators who came here after the great
Roslyn trouble of last year, have been
working among the miners for some
time past in an endeavor to bring on a
strike if all their demands were not
accepted. This they have accomplished,
for at the present time there is virtual
ly a general strike at tho Wellington
collieries. A meeting between tho
minora and Messrs. Dtinsmuir and Man
ager Brydon has been arranged for

Ni:w YoitK, May 21. Mrs. Florence
Mnsterson, a resident of Denting, N. M.,
and a guest at tho- Grand Union hotel,
this city, died suddenly in her rooms
Mrs. Mastcrson is the wife of the min
ing man Mastcrson, formerly of Pros
cott, Arizona, whose shooting affair in
Mrs. Hopkinson's flat, recently, brought
him into notoriety.
When Mrs. Mastcrson heard of the
shooting affair she started east from
Doming, her home, to have an under
standing with her husband. On her ar
rival she wrote Mastcrson, requesting an
interview. There was no response, and
she again wrote, with the same result.
Though her health was always good, the
excitement and grief drove her into
nervous prostration, and to-day, as she
entered the elevator, she placed her
hand over her heart and fell to the floor
Dr. Adams, of I'll East Thirtieth
street, is a nephew of Mrs. Mastcrson.
Upon her arrival she paid a visit to
Dr. Adams and had been in consulta
tion with him in reference to her hus
band. This morning Mrs. Masterson
sent again to her husband's office in
Wall street begging him to come and
see her. He did not put in an appear
ance. About (i o'clock this evening
Mrs. Masterson went to her nephew's
house and told Dr. Adams that her
husband had not come. She was very
much grieved at his action in tho mat
ter and gave way to her feelings.
Dr. Adams did all ho could to console
her. About 7 :30 o'clock Mrs. Masterson
expressed a desire to go back to her
hotel. Dr. Adams accompanied her.
They rode up on the elevator to the sec
ond story to where Mrs. Masterson's
room was located.
Dr. Adams stepped first and assisted
his aunt out. Just us she stepped into
the hall-way she gave a shriek and fell
into the arms of her nephew. One
glance was sufficient to tell Dr. Adams
that she was dead.
Dr. Adams started out to find Judge
Mastcrson and informed him of his
wife's death. Masterson was much af
fected by the news and went at once to
the Grand Union Hotel.
At the hotel it is said that Dr. Adams
left word that the cause of Mrs. Master
sou'm death was heart disease. Dr. Ad
ams could not be found.
Masterson is worth, he says, $2,000,000
and owns mines in Mexico. He is forty
seven years of age and gray haired. Mrs.
Masterson was thirty-eight years old.
Mrs. Alice L. Hopkinson, with whom
Mastcrson had tho trouble, is a well
known frequenter of the race track. To
night when the reporter went to Mrs.
Hopkinson's Hat he was refused admis
sion. Mrs. Hopkinson was seen inside
in full evening costume in her bril
liantly lighted room.

Whose Was tho Itody round Floating In
San Fkancisco, May 21. Efforts have
leen made this evening to discover the
identity of tho body found floating in
the bay to-day, and which gave every
appearance of brutal murder having
been committed. The clerk at the
Brooklyn Hotel identified the remains
as those of a man who had been stop
ping at the hotel for a few days
and who gave the name of J. II. Murray
of San Rafael. Inquiry in San Rafae'l
developed the fact that J. II. Murray
owned a ranch at Tamalpais, and was
worth considerable money. Inquiry
was also made at Modesto, as an enve
lope was found in the pocket of the
deceased addressed to C. M. Nurray of
that place. A special to the Clnonicle
from Modesto this evening, says that C.
M. Murray, who is a clerk in the Russ
bouse, believes that the murdered man
is Charles Kent, ex-State Senator from
Nevada county. Kent was in Modesto
last week, and Saturday he t-eenred a
loan from Murray, who gave him an
envelope addressed to himself, as Kent
desired to return the money when he
reached San Francisco.

the Standard Oil company against the
Southern Pacific Railroad company and
Whittier, Fuller & Co. was decided to
day, by Judge Hoffman, in the United
States Court, lie dissolved the tem
porary restraining order and denied the
application for a permanent order to re
strain defendants from using certain cars
for hauling oil, upon which car plaintiff
claimed patent rights. The question in
volved the very existence of the oil trade
in California except that portion of it
carried on by the Standard Oil Com
pany. When tho ordinary freight car
is used in sending out a car
load of oil from the east the
empty car must be hauled
all the way back at a cost
of $00,000, which kills tho profit on the
goods. The Standard Oil Company
uses a car v Inch can be used for carry
ing oil one way and freight on the re
turn trip, so that tho railroad charges
nothing for hauling it back. Whittier,
Fuller & Co. adopted a car somewhat
similar to that used by the Standard
Oil Company ami the latter sued for an

Inferences from Plain Read

Tiie lawyer of the Tombstone Prof
pector should read law.
In fact, there seems to lx; a large and
varied assortment of miss-information
scattered alxnit the Territory concerning
the question as to whether or not natu
ralized citizens me entitled to vote .upon
their first papers, and the 1'roipettor
simply becomes a shining example
when it asserts positively that such cit
izens arc entitled to the right of suffrage.
Even the lawyers are not at one upon
the question, as witness the fact that
several District-Attorneys have appealed
to the Attorney-General for an opinion
upon tho point.
The whole muddle seems to have been
brought about by the passage by the
last legislature of an act to amend chap
ters 4 and 5, title 21, of the revised stat
utes of Arizona.
This act provides: "Section 1. Every
maid citizen of the United States, and
every male citizen of Mexico who shall
have elected to become a citizen of tho
United States under the treaty of peace
exchanged and ratified at Jiiintero on
the :t0th day of May. 1848, and the Gads
den treaty of 1851, of the age of 21 years,
who shall have been a resident of the
Territory six months next preceding the
election, and of the county or precinct
in which he claims his vote ten days,
and whoH) name is enrolled on the Great
Register of such county, shall be en
titled to vote at all elections which are
now or may hereafter be authorized by
Subdivision 3, paragraph 1C00, sec
tion six of title 21, is amended as fol
"If a naturalized citizen upon the
presentation of his certificate of na
turalization, or upon his own affidavit
of its loss, together with the affidavit of
a registered voter to the effect that the
applicant is a naturalized citizen and
lias resided in this Territory for six
months next preceding the time of ap
plication, and is reported to be a citi
zen, together with proof bv affidavit of
the party that he is an elector of the
county, shall be entitled to have hia
name entered utKmthc Great ltegieter.
In the original law, prior to amend
ment, subdivision 3 read that a person
was entitled to registration "if he was a
naturalized citizen, or if he had declared
his intention to income such citizen,
uj)on the presentation of his certificate
of naturalization or of a certified copy of
his declaration of intention, etc.,"
The intent of this statute is very
plain, and the lawyer of the Prospector
would seem to have been misinformed.
As in all of the States and Territories
formed from that part of the United
States ceded by Mexico, the residents at
the time of session liecaino citizens by
treaty if they so chose, and as such citi
zens nre entitled to all the privileges of
the ballot upon registration.
.Naturalized citizens must, it would
seem from a plain reading of the amend
ment, take out their second papers and
produce these papers or proof of their
loss before becoming entitled to regis
tration. That is the law of the Territory, and
their is no power that can change it
were a change desirable short of tho

tection. "It it a practical impossibility to pre
vent the smuggling of Chinese across
the border from Mexico," said United
States Marshal Paul to a Rei-um.ioas-reporter,
last night, "with the present
force at my disposal."
"How arc the Chinese brought in7"
"They come from San Francisco to
Guaymas, and then make their way into
Arizona. For a long time past it is
impossible to tell how longor how many
Chinese como in that way it was the
practice tor them to come up the rail
road as far as Santa Ana, from which
point they were taken in covered wagons
over the old trail that crossed the border
near the Gunsight mine. There was n
big business until the authorities found
out the route and stopped it. We had
caught and sent back seven seeking to
come across, altogether, up to about tho
first of the month. The authorities
have now stationed a man at Santa Ana
and another at Alta to watch parties
coming, and these are followed when
they leave these jioiiits and prevented
"How manv men arc now stationed
on the border?"
"From Yuma to the New Mexico line,
a disance of about 400 miles, there are
four men only who are expected to watch
the whole length of the border. Of
course this is a physfcal imjtossibility.
The first of these is at Ft. Yuma, and
there is no other man for 200 miles
when La Osa is reached. The next
man is at Nogales, stxty miles from La
Osa. These men, in the nature of
things, can patrol the territory only
near their stations. To keep out tho
Chinese effectually, tho border must be
natrollcd much more closely, and I am
heartily in favor of strengthing the
"How many men would it require to
effectually guard the border?"
'Well, ten men could do it, and there
would lx) no danger of the ChinesQ
evading the guards.
