AT THE CAPITAL.
Doings in Both Houses of
Senator Daniel Speaks on the
The River and Harbor Bill Taken
Up in the House.
The Senate Will Pass a Substitute for
the McKinloy Tariff Bill.
Associated Press Dispatches I
Washington, May 22.—1n the senate
today a message was presented from the
president, with a communication from
the secretary of the interior, on the sub
ject of the purchase from the Creek In
dians of land for the use of the Semi
noles. Referred to the committee on
The credentials of Calvin S. Brice as
senator from Ohio were presented and
placed on file.
A conference committee was ordered
on the pension appropriation bill.
The silver bill was then taken up,
and Daniel addressed the senate in
favor of silver currency.
Daniel said gold and silver money
were wedded by nature. Before the
jury of all civilized and enlightened
nations throughout the centuries, the
cause of gold and silver was heard, and
with one voice the nations had answered
that to gold and silver belonged the royal
attribute of money. Daniel ridiculed
the idea of an avalanche of silver crush
ing down upon the United States in case
of free coinage of silver. It
was obvious, he said, that the
silver money abroad would not
come to the United States mint, and
it was also obvious that there was no
such annual production of silver in the
world ($142,000,000, of which all but
$51,000,000 was now coined) as to cause
any fear on that score. There was only
one other point of apprehension : That
there was an accumulated stock of silver
that would rush to America as soon as
the mint was open to free coinage, and
this was answered by the secretary of
the treasury himself, who stated in his
report: "There is no known accumula
tion of silver bullion anywhere in the
world." All silver should be admitted
to free coinage, and all silver being so
admitted to a value equal with gold, it
was most reasonable to conclude that as
soon as there was a restoration of silver
to its ancient plane of a money dignity,
and thus an enlargement of the world's
volume of money, the prices of those
things that had gone down with its de
cline would again have a tendency to
rise with its ascension.
At the close of Daniel's speech the
silver bill was laid aside without action,
and the amendments to the naval ap
propriation bill were agreed to.
After executive session the senate
Consideration of the River and Harbor
Washington, May 22. —In the house,
today, the committee on census reported
a bill amending the census act to pre
scribe a penalty upon any supervisor or
enumerator who shall receive, or any
person who shall pay, any fee or other
consideration in addition to the compen
sation of such service as enumerator.
Conferences were ordered on the army
appropriation bill and the military acad
emy appropriation bill.
The house then went into committee
of the whole on the river and harbor bill.
Henderson, of Illinois,chairman of the
committee on rivers and harbors, ex
plained the provisions of the bill, saying
that it appropriated $20,932,000, based
upon estimates aggregating $39,500,000.
He believed that there was no money
that went out of the treasury that was
so much in the interest of the people as
tlie money expended in the improvement
of rivers and harbors.
Blanchard of Louisiana, spoke in favor
of the river and harbor bill, contending
that it did more to solve tlie problem
of cheap transportation than all the in
terstate commerce bills that could be
passed. The fact that a great and dis
astrous flood recently occurred in the
lower Mississippi valley, was sufficient
excuse, if one was needed,for calling tlie
attention of the house to the require
ments of that stream. It was time con
gress should be waking up to tlie idea
that something should be done to har
ness the waters of the Mississippi. That
river was too great a national feature to
be handled by a state or an aggregation
of states. The time had come when
congress should appropriate money,
not only for improving the
navigation of the river, but for the
purpose of preventing floods. The late
flood had not demonstrated that the
levee system was a failure, but that an
adequate system of levees would pre
vent floods, and the piecemeal system
which the impoverished states of the
south were able to carry on, was not
sufficient to prevent inundation.
Catchings, of Mississippi, spoke in
the same vein.
Kerr, of lowa, attacked the bill, which
was defended by Grosvenor, of Ohio.
After the committee rose, Quinn, of
New York, introduced a bill reducing to
one cent an ounce the postage on drop
letters in cities of 100,000 inhabitants or
Woman'! Suffrage Gains a Point in
Washington, May 22. —For the first
time in the history of the house judici
ary committee the majority of members
today agreed to a favorable repocj upon
the joint resolution introduced by Rep
resentative Baker, of New York, provid
ing for a constitutional amendment to
grant the right of suffrage to women.
The National Flag Bill.
The house judiciary committee, to
whom was referred the bill to prevent
the desecration of the United States flag,
today reported a substitute providing
that any person or persons who shall
print, paint or affix in any manner to
the national flag, any advertisement,
shall be fined not exceeding $50 or im
prisoned not less than thirty days.
A SubsliUite For the McKinley Bill.
It is the present intention of the mem
bers of the senate finance committee to
report a substitute for the McKinley
tariff bill when their consideration of
that i • c shall have been completed.
THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: FRIDAY MORNING, MAY 23, 1890.
This course is deemed better than to re
port the bill as it came from the house
with amendments, for, when it goes
into conference, there will be but one
question to settle, instead of a myriad of
differences upon points in detail.
Arid Laud Redemption.
Senator Stewart today proposed an
amendment to .the sundry civil appro
priation bill (referred to the appropri
ation committee), authorizing the secre
tary of agriculture to expend $250,000 in
continuing the investigation of the ex
tent to which the arid region of the
United States can be redeemed by irri
gation, and the segregation of irrigable
lands in such region, and for the selec
tion of sites for reservoirs and other
hydraulic works in connection with irri

The Rush will, however, proceed direct
to the fishing grounds, and be there in

The Bingham Ordinance Likely to Cause
an International Imbroglio.
San Francisco, May 22.—1t is under
stood that full particulars regarding the
Bingham ordinance, requiring the re
moval of Chinatown to South San Fran
cisco, and the arrests made for non-com
pliance with the ordinance, have been
laid before the Chinese legation at
Washington. The Chinese minister, it
is expected, will call the attention of
Secretary Blame to the matter, and de
mand that China's treaty rights
be upheld. Local Vice-Consul
Bee said the Chinese govern
ment would bring a civil suit for dam
ages in each and every instance where a
Chinese was arrested under the pro
visions of the ordinance. Not only will
civil suits be brought for damages, but
every federal statute bearing on the
matter will be resorted to. "This,"
said Consul Bee, "is not made as a
threat; it is our plain duty in the matter
and the municipality of San Francisco
will be held strictly liable."
Detectives Still Looking for Slmmonds
and the Driver of the White Horse.
Chicago, May 22. —The fact has been
brought to light that "J. B. Simmonds,"
the man who bought the furniture for
the Carlson cottage, where Dr. Cronin
was murdered, was recently seen in the
city by Salesman Hatfield, from whom
he bought the furniture. The police,
however, have been unable to find him.
Yesterday a detective returned from a
fruitless trip to Mexico in search of the
man who drove the famous white horse.
Today Chief of Police Marsh said he
knew positively that this man was in
Mexico, but had received warning of the
| officer's approach, through the garru
lousness of some of Dr. Cronin's friends,
whom it was necessary to apprise of the
object of his search.

The Slayer of Garness Set at
The End of a Celebrated Murder
Impassioned Appeal of Defendant's
Counsel for Acquittal.
The Jury Justifies the Killing of as Deep-
Dyed a Villian as Ever Dese
crated a Home.
Associated Press Dispatches. 1
San Francisco, May 22. —Ex-Judge
Darwin, in argument for the prosecu
tion in the Arnold case, this morning,
said the fact that Garness sent circulars
to people in Colusa, and endeavored to
get others to engage in the blackmailing
affair, had no bearing on the case, in its
legal aspect. "I would not for one in
stant condone Garness's offense," he
continued in the course of his remarks.
"You have heard the evidence and you
must have concluded that he was in all
respects a dangerous man, who had em
barked on an atrocious enterprise; but
to attempt to break up a man's
family, to spread scandalous reports
about his wife and children,
is not an offense punishable
with death. We can all admit that
there are men who ought to be killed ;
the killing of such men, however, is just
as much murder as the killing of a man
whose reputation is unstained." Con
cerning the line of defense, counsel said
it relied on three theories —insanity,
self-defense and the introduction of evi
dence calculated to prejudice jurors
against Arnold. The insanity theory
rested solely on the evidence that after
the receipt of the circulars Arnold's
mind was perturbed. The statement
that Arnold fired in self-defense has
been shown to be false; and no evidence
showing that Garness was a blackmailer
should be regarded in connection with
Counsel Delmas, for the defense, in
his argument reviewed the lives of
Arnold and Garness, and the circum
stances of the circulation of the defama
tory circulars. He stated that from the
time of receiving the circulars, Arnold
was a changed man; not only was his
peace destroyed and his mind driven to
all but madness, but his wife w r as soon
on the verge of insanity, and his children
found themselves shunned by their
school associates. It was not enough
for Garness to have pub
lished these circulars which
destroyed the peace of the man, the
honor of his wife and the paternity of
his children, but Garness, to complete
his infamous character, all the time pro
fessed the utmost friendship for his vic
tim. "At last," said counsel, "the de
fendant accused Garness directly of the
crime. The guilty wretch finding him
self confronted by direct charges, at
tempted to take the life of the man
whose home he had desecrated, and to
whom he had done a greater wrong than
murder itself. Providence was on the
side of the right, and the blackmailer
fell a victim to the revolver of the man
whose life he himself wanted."
At the conclusion of the remarks of
Mr. Delmas the audience applauded, but
Judge Murphy checked the outbreak.
During the argument Mrs. Arnold sat
by the side of her husband, her face hid
den behind a heavy black veil. By her
side sat her eldest daughter, and the
youngest daughter sat in her father's lap.
The two girls shed tears freely.
Assistant District Attorney Hbsmer
made the closing argument for the prose
cution. He said: "Prejudice is
not to enter into consideration
of the verdict. The law says
every person who kills another through
malice is guilty of murder. It does not
say that if a man is maligned he can
take tlie law into his own hands and re
dress his wrong by shedding blood."
Counsel commented upon the dual
defense of insanity and self-defense as
incompatible. He said: "There has
been no proof that when Arnold shot
Garness he did not know what he was
Argument of counsel was concluded
late this afternoon, and Judge Murphy
delivered the charge to the jury, who
then retired to deliberate.
The jury returned at about 10 o'clock
this evening, and returned a verdict of
