Associated Press Dispatches.
Washington, Sept. 26.—After ten
days' hard work tlie conference commit
tee on tlie tariff bill completed its work
late this afternoon and reported the re
sult to the house. Tlie committee had
to deal with 464 amendments. In the
more important items tlie result of tlie
committee's action was as follows :
The date when the bill is to take effect
is made October 6th.
February Ist, next, is fixed as the ul
timate date upon which goods deposited
in bond before October Ist, may be
withdrawn at the old rates of duty.
In the case of sugar the conference, in
place of a uniform bounty of two cents
on grades of 80 and above, as provided
by the house, included maple sugar and
adopted the following provision: On
and after July 11, 1891, and until July 1.
1905, there shall be paid from any
money in the treasury, not otherwise
appropriated under the provision of sec
tion 3089 Revised Statutes, to the pro
ducer of sugar, there being not less than
90 degrees polarioscope, from beets,-sor
ghum or sugar cane grown within the
United States, or from maple sap produc
ed within the United States, a bounty of
two cents per pound, and upon sugar
testing less than 90 degrees, and not
less than 80 degrees, a bounty of one
and three-fourth cents per pound, under
such rules and regulations as the com
missioner of internal revenue, with the
approval of the secretary of tlie treasury
may prescribe.
In the oase of imported sugars, the
house line of No. Hi Dutch standard, be
low which sugar shall be free, is adopt
ed ; but on higher grades the result was
a compromise as follows: All sugars
above No. 1(3 in color shall pay a duty of
five-tenths of Tone cent per pound,
provided, that all sugars above No. 16
in color shall pay one-tenth of one cent
a pound in addition to the rate herein
provided for, when exported from, or the
products of any country, when and bo
long as such country pays, or shall here*
after pay, directly or indirectly, a boun
ty on the exportation of any such sugar
which may De included in this grade,
which is greater than is paid on raw
sugars of lower saccharine strength;
and the secretary of tho treasury
shall prescribe suitable rules and regu
lations to carry this nrovision into
effect; and provided further, that all
machinery purchased abroad and
erected in a beet sugar factory and used
in the production of raw sugar in the
United States, from beets produced
therein, shall be admitted duty free
until the first day of July, 1892. Pro
vided that any duty collected on any of
the above described machinery pur
chased abroad, and imported into the
United States for the uses above indi
cated since January Ist, 1890, shall be
refunded.
Whereas, the senate provided that
the sugar schedule and bounty provis
ion was to take effect March Ist, next,
the conference fixed upon April Ist, as
the date, with the proviso that No. 13
sugar may be in the meantime refined
in bond without duty.
The duty on binding twine is fixed at
seven-tenths of a cent, but on other
manila cordage the rate is advanced from
l'i'cents to I^'cents per pound, more
than was agreed upon by either house.
All of the paragraphs inserted by the
senate providing for a customs commis
sion were striken out by the confer
ence.
In tin plate, the house rate, ? 4 cent
per pound above sheet iron rates to July
Ist next, and 2-10 after that date, is re
tained. The senate rate of a further ad
ditional duty of 35 per oent. on manu
factures of tin plate, ia replaced by an
absolute single duty of 55 per cent, and
its stipulation for free Go-pound tin,
after 1896, in case of the failure of do
mestic works to produce one-third of
the consumption, is retained.
In the internal revenues features of
the bill, nearly all the house provisions
are restored. The provisions removing
all restrictions on farmers and growers
of tobacco, in regard to the sale of leaf
tobacco, are restored, and the proviso
added that a farmer shall furnish, on
demand of an internal officer, a state
ment of his sales, etc. A fine of $500 is
provided for the violation of this provis
ion.
The conference committee struck out
the senate amendments providing for a
tariff commission.
The tax on smoking and manufactur
ed tobacco and on snuff is placed at 6
cents per pound. Opium manufacturers
are taxed if 10 per pound upon opium
manufactured in the United States for
smoking purposes, and only persons who
are citizens of the United States are per
mitted to engage in its manufacture.
The rates established in the wool
schedule where amendments are made,
. are as follows : Woolen or worstt :1 yarn
from the hair of the camel, goat, al
paca or other animals, valued above 30
cents a pound, 2 W times the duty on un
washed wools of the first class; woolen
or worsted cloths, valued above 30 cents
a pound, three times the duty on un
washed wool of the first class; on
clothing ready made, and articles of
wearing apparel of every description
made up or manufactured wholly or in
part, not specially provided for, and
plushes and other pile fabrics, all the
foregoing composed wholly or in part of
wool, worsted of the hair of the camel,
goat, alpaca or other animals, four and
one-half times the duty imposed by this
act on unwashed wool of the first class.
The conferees agreed to the senate
.reciprocity and retaliation amendment,
..'.naking but one change, which wi« in j
the date, which is January, 1892, in
stead of July next.
Of the changes made in the agri
cultural schedules, the conferees' report
says: "In the agricultural schedule
the house rate is mainly retained on
oranges, lemons and limes, which the
houae made dutiable at double the
present rates, in order to afford
protection and encouragement to
the planters of California and Florida.
The senate reduced the rates somewhat,
but leaves them above the present laws.
The house conferres yielded reluctantly.
An amendment was" added to that of
the senate imposing an additional duty
of 30 per cent on packages in which
oranges, lemons and limes are imported.
The paragraphs inserced by the"senate
imposing a discriminating duty of 10
per cent on tea, the product of countries
east of the Cape of Good Hope, when
imported from countries east of the
Cape of Good Hope, is stricken out.
The senate struck out the bounty pro
visions proposed In the silk schedule bill
passed by the house.
In the liquor schedule the senate made
increases on various forma of wines and
liquors. The house rates were restored,
except on champagne and spirits, leav
ing still wines and malt liquors at the
existing rates of duty.
The conferees, speaking of the effect
of the bill on the revenues, say they do
not believe there is any matt rial differ
ence between the house and the senate
bills, in the matter of the estimated re
duction made in the dutiable scnedule,
namely $60,000,000, and their action has
not materially affected that estimate,
except in the restoration of the internal
revenue provisions of the house, and of
that point they say :
For the year ending June 30, 1890, the
receipts from special taxes on the class of
persons to be relieved by the bill, were
$1,515,481; from taxes on tobacco, $18,
--235,482, and from snuff, $737,731. By
the passage of the bill the reduction in
revenue from tobacco will be $4,581,370,
and from snuff, $184,433, making from
these sources an aggregate of $4,765,803.
Adding these figures to the reduction
which would follow in the abolition of
the special taxes, would make a total re
duction in internal revenue receipts of
$(5,281,284. Tlie probable reduction by
the customs schedules will probably be
about $(50,000,000, which would give an
aggregate reduction by the bill of about
$66,000,000.
THE TIPPERARY TRIAL.
Dilatory Tactics Pursued by the Court
and the Crown.
Dublin, Sept. 26.—The streets of Tip
perary were thronged with people till a
late hour last night, discussing the ex
citing events of the day. The situation
this morning is much more tranquil
than yesterday. The streets are still
thronged with people laboring under
suppressed excitement, but there has
been no collision with the police. The
authorities are taking special precaution
to guard against the possibility of an
outbreak. Detachments of soldiers are
assisting the police in maintaining
order.
The session of the court was of, short
duration this morning. The presiding
magistrate announced that it would be
impossible to go on with the cases as
the judge of the county court required
the building. It would, therefore, be
necessary to adjourn further proceed
ings until the afternoon.
Before the magistrate could declare
the court adjourned, Timothy Healv
sprang to his feet and in the name of
tlie defendants offered an earnest pro
test agaiust adjournment. It was not
right, he urged, that the magistrates in
audi a case should suit their actions to
the convenience of the county court.
The judge of that tribunal should be
the one to yield instead of insisting on
his right in the premises.
Healy's protest was unavailing. As
soon as he resumed his seat the court
adjourned until afternoon.
When the court reopened in the after
noon, Ronan proceeded with a state
ment oi the crown's case againgt the
accused men. He read long extracts
from speeches made-at various Nation
alist meetings since the inauguration of
the plan of campaign.
William O'Brien charlingly reminded
Rowan that his ship Was to sail for
America on Thursday next.
When the court adjourned, Ro
nan was |still speaking. Timothy
Harrington made a strong pro
test against the course being pursued
by the prosecution. Tlie protest, how
ever, had no effect upon the court, and
the present policy of the prosecution
will, it is generally believed, be main
tained to the end oi tlie trial.
John Morley departed today for Eng
land.
A Horrible Crime.
Camden, N. J., Sept. 26. —A horrible
crime, resembling in detail* the
murder of Annie Lecoudflp was
brought to light this afternoon by the
rinding of the mutilated body of Mrs.
John Miller, aged 29, in a dense woods
near her home in Delaware township,
this county. Frank Linge, a burly
negro who was suspected of the murder
of Miss Leconey, is locked up charged
with causing Mrs. Miller's death. The
motive is supposed to have been rob
bery.
A Double Electrocution.
Winchenwom, Mass., Sept. 26. —Ed-
ward T. Ryan, aged 18, and G. Barnard,
aged 20, were instantly killed tonight by
an electric light wire coining in contact
with an incandescent circuit on Pound
street. Barnard's hands were badly
burned, and it is supposed Ryan at
tempted to assist him and himself fell a
victim.
Watterson Speaks In Boston.
Boston, Sept. 26. —A large gathering
in the Massachusetts Reform club to
night greeted Henry Watterson of the
Louisville Courier-Journal, who de
livered an address on the political issues
of the day, including the tariff bill and
the elections bill.
Only a Volley Salute.
New York, Sept. 26.—Carlos Penalta,
who arrived from Mexico two days ago,
ridicules the story of the attack on Pres
ident Diaz. He was at the celebration
mentioned, and the only musketry he
heard was a volley salute iired as the
president and his staff appeared.
Killed by Pigs.
New Castle, Pa., Sept. 26. —A 3-year
old girl named Cooper accidentally fell
into a pig sty tonight. In an instant
two powerful pigs attacked her, and be
fore anyone could come to her assistance,
lacerated her limbs and body in an
awful manner. The child will die.

More Charges Against the Postmaster of
the House—Reed Rides Over Dem
ocrats Rough-Shod.
Associated Press Dispatches. 1
Washington, Sept. 26. —In the house
today a resolution was passed for the
appointment of a sub-committee of live
of the world's fair committee to inquire
into matters relative thereto and report
at the next Beaaion.
Enloe, of Tennessee, offered a resolu
tion stating that it was alleged that the
postmaster of the house has on the roll
of his employees,at $100 a month, a man
named Bradley who works in the gov
ernment printing ofiice; that Bradley
pays $95 a month to a son of the post
master who does not work in the post
office ; and directing the committee on
accounts to investigate. A tilt between
the speaker, Enloe and Blount,
of Georgia, occurred over the
speaker calling them to order for
not confining themselves to the matter
of the resolution. They charged the
speaker with unfairness in restricting
Democrats to the subject in hand more
cloaely than Republicans. The speaker
replied that the Democrats were more
given to transgression than the Repub
licans.
Enloe spoke of hia resolution of yes
terday and complained of having been
deprived of the floor in a parliamentary,
but very unfair manner. There was
quite a lengthy discussion between
himself, the speaker and Blount, at the
conclusion of which the resolution waa
adopted.
Soon after, McKinley brought in the
conference report on tlie tariff bill, and
it was ordered printed in the record.
McKinley then gave notice that to
morrow, immediately after the reading
of the journal, he would call up the re
port for consideration and final disposi
tion.
McMillin wanted the time extended
until Monday.
McKinley said the bill, as it would be
printed, contained all the changes rec
ommended by the conference committee.
Aa to many featurea of the bill the
points of disagreement had been perfect
ly well understood for weeks, and it was
perfectly understood what the confer -
ence committee recommended. Tho
gentlemen on both sides were anxious
to get home, and he must insist upon
its consideration tomorrow.
McMillin thereupon insisted upon the
reading of the conference report. The
reading was not completed at 6 o'clock
when the houae took a recess, before
which McKinley offered for reference a
resolution for the final adjournment of
congress on Tuesday next at 2 o'clock.
The house at the evening sessiou
passed 112 private pension bills and
adjourned.
SENATE PROCEEDINGS.
A Number ot Bills and Resolutions
Passed.
Washington, Sept. 2(1. —In the senate
today Sherman introduced a hill (re
ferred to the committee on appropria
tions,) appropriating $183,000 for the
purchase for the use of the senaae, of
the Maltby house at the corner of New
Jerstey avenue and B street, northwest,
with the vacant lot on the north side
of it. He said the reason why its pur
chase had been so long delayed, was
that there had been litigation as to
the title.
The conference report for the estab
lishment of a 2,000-acre park in the
District of Columbia, was passed.
The house resolution appropriating
$1,000,000 for the purchase of nickel ore,
or nickel matte, for naval purposes, was
received from the house.
Cameron ottered an amendment pro
viding that such nickel ore or nickel
matte, so purchased, shall be equitably
distributed among contractors of nickel
sheet-armor plating.
After an extended debate Hale con
sented to let the joint resolution go
over till tomorrow.
Consideration of the calendar was re
sumed, and the house bill granting
leave of absence to clerks and employees
of lirst and second-class postoflices was
passed.
On motion of Blair, the House bill to
amend the act to prohibit the importa
tion and immigration of foreigners and
aliens under contract or agreement to
perform labor, was taken from the cal
endar.
Plumb moved to amend the fifth sec
tion which provides that the act shall
not apply to professional actors, artists,
etc., by inserting before the word "arti
cles", the words "musical or otherwise."
Agreed to.
Carlisle moved to substitute for the
words "regularly ordained ministers of
the gospel", the words "regularly or
dained or constituted ministers of relig
ion", and said without that amendment
the bill would exclude Jewish rabbis.
Agreed to.
Plumb moved to insert after the words
"artists," the word "musicians."
Agreed to.
Plumb offered an amendment that the
bill shall not apply to any organization
of musicians or orchestra's.
The bill went over till tomorrow, leav
ing the last amendment unacted upon,
and the senate resumed consideration of
the bill to establish United States land
courts. Without action the senate ad
journed.
WASHINGTON NOTES.
Tlie Big Trees Reservation Christened—
Silver Purchases, Etc.
Washington, Sept. 26. —Secretary No
ble has promulgated rules and regula
tions for the government of the park in
Tu.are county, California, containing the
mammoth or "sequoia gigantea" trees,
created by the act of congress approved
September 25, 1890. The secretary
christens the new park "the Sequoia
National Park." The rules for its regu
lations are substantially the same as
those governing the Yellowstone park.
The secretary said today, if he
found it practicable he would pro
cure from an adjoining tract to
the park a section of one of the mam
moth trees for exhibition at the world's
fair at Chicago.
The treasury department today pur
chased 105,000 ounces of silver, paying
$1.13 for 40,000 ounces, and $1.13 1 4 for
•55,000 ounces. The amount offered was
166,000 ounces. The total purchase of
silver to date under the new law is
7,277,000 ounces. The quota for this
month is now filled.
The census bureau announces the
population of Oakland, California, at
48,590 ;an increase of 14.035; Sacra
mento, 56,272, an increase of 4,852,
Stocton, 14,376, an increase of 4,094.
Representative Caswell today re
ported favorably from the committee on
judiciary the ae'nate bill to amend the
laws in reference to bigamy. The bill
has particular reference to the
church of the Latter Day
Saints whose charter was forfeited
in 1887. The proceeds of the sale
of its real estate is turned over to the
school fund, but no provision is made
for the disposition of the personal prop
erty of the corporation, which amounts
to nearly $400,000 and is awaiting the ac
tion of the court. The committee deems
it wise to let the money take the same
course as that derived from the sale of
real estate, and place it in the school
fund.
THE BURCHELL TRIAL.
The Prosecution Ends Its Evidence and
the Defense Begins.
Woodstock, Ont., Sept. 26. —Miss
Cromwell, of Eastwood, was the first
witness in the Burchelltrial today. She
testified that on February 17th she went
to the station to meet some friends
who were to come in on
the 3 o'clock train. She met
Burchell in a lane coming from
Brantford road to the station. His
shoes were muddy, and his trousers
rolled up. He entered the station and
bought a ticket for Hamilton. ft he had
no doubt as to his identity with the
prisoner.
James Hay ward, of Eastwood, testi
fied that he was at the station on the
day in question and saw Miss Smith
there; he also noticed that BurchalPa
trousers were rolled up.
Henry Jones, a porter at Eastwood
station, corroborated Hayward's evi
dence, as did Mary Swaize, also.
George Hay, a brakeman on the
Grand Trunk road, swore positively that
he saw Burchell get on at Eastwood and
saw him last at Niagara Falls.
After two other witnesses were exam
ined, Osier said this was all the evidence
against the prisoner.
In the afternoon the witnesses for the
defense began.
John Robb heard two shots in the
swamp about dusk, and shortly after
saw a man come out, followed by an
other. A neighhor, Mts. Schnltz, cor
roborrated this story.
John Burgh saw two men going east on
the Governor's road and took them on
his wagon to a point opposite Perry's
place, from where they went on east.
Neither of them was the prisoner.
Farmer Oliver said two men called at
his house at 3 o'clock on the morning
of the 18th of February, saying they
were going to Princetown to buy horses,
and had missed the way.
James Atkinson, of Dtumbo, said two
men giving the names of Culwell and
Baker, called at his hotel early on the
morning of the 20th, and asked for
refreshments.
Samuel Straib said Baker and Cul
well called at his father's house Thurs
day before the body was found. Three
other witnesses testified that they
thought the body was that of a man
who had been peddling polish about
Woodstock, but were not sure.
Three witnesses familiar with the
swamp testified that there is no such
trail as referred to in the former evi
dence, as leading from the second point
to the place of finding the body.

ONLY TWO ROUNDS
Required to Knock Out the
Mission Boy.
The Australian Settled Him in
Short Order-
The Much Talked of International
Fight a Tinner of the Past.
The Battle was Short, Sharp and Decisive
—Slavin the Winner—McAulitTe |
Badly Punished.
Associated Press Dispatches. I
London, Sept. 2".—The much talked
of fight between Frank Slavin, the Aus- j
tralian champion, and Joe McAuliffe, I
the American heavy weight pugilist,
took place at the Ormond club, at 5
o'clock this morning. In order to bring
the contest within the limits of the law,
gloves weighing six ounces, instead of j
four ounces, were used, and the number I
of rounds was reduced from thiity to j
fifteen. The hour of the fight was kept
Secret in order to avoid a mob crowding j
access to the Ormond club, the main
door of which was guarded with the 1
greatest vigilance.
Slavin, accompanied by Lewis, his
manager, and Start, hia trainer, arrived
at the club houae at 6 o'clock laat even
ing and went to bed. McAuliffe, attend- '
ed by his trainer, Billy Madden, and his
manager, Richard K. Fox, came later !
and took a shorter rest than his oppo
nent.
At 1 o'clock in the morning the sport
ing celebrities began to assemble at the
scene of the fight. Among the noted
ones were Lord Marcus Beresford, Count
Kinskic, Hon. M. Gieville, Pony Moore,
Charles Mitchell and Charles Archer.
At 3:30 o'clock the men were awak
ened by their trainers and thoroughly
sponged down and rubbed, and each re
ceived a stimulant in the form of an ;
egg flip.
At four o'clock the doors of the gym- I
nasium were opened and the ring ropes
were speedily surrounded. Both ap- I
peared to be in splendid condition. |
McAuliffe was the first to enter the ring.
He had for his seconds Jack Burke and
Billy Madden. Slavin was attended by
Jem Carney and M. McCarthy. When
the referees took their positions and
time was called, betting was 5 to 4 on
Slavin.
At about 5 o'clock the two principals
entered the ring, followed by their
seconds. At the call of time both men
advanced at once to the centre of the

that we have gathered the choicest
selection of patterns ever brought to

ring. After ahort preliminary sparring,
Slavin led off rather low with his right.
This was returned by one from Mc-
Auliffe with his left, which miased its
mark. The Australian pluckily
followed up with a good one
from his left, then his right,
and in some exchanges which followed,
McAuliffe had decidedly the better of it.
When they broke away McAuliffe landed
I a power ul blow on his opponej Vt
chest with his right, but Slavin promt ly
retaliated, whereupon McAuliffe ca
to the ground.
After McAuliffe came to the grob.ui
there fwas tremendous cheering in the
Australian corner. Upon McAuliffe
arising the two got together and Mc-
Auliffe landed a terrific blow on Slavin 'a
face. The American was at once kt • n
on the face of his man, and landing
twice with his right, hit him tremen
dous blows, time not being called until
McAuliffe left off with a decided advan
tage.
In the second round McAuliffe began
with his right on Slavin's face, then
quickly got away to escape a determined
rush by Slavin. Right around the ring
the Australian chased his man, who now
began to cut a sorry figure, and when
they go; close enough, Slavin was twice
more strenuous in dealing punishment
with his right. Alter the men closed
the American broke away, having got
the worse of the deal.
On resuming the fight Slavin saw his
chance. Availing himself of it very
quickly, he was in to finish his already
beaten man, and he soon knocked Mc-
Auliffe down with a clean blow, and
after waiting for his return, recommenced
most vigorously. It was now all over
with the "Mission boy", as he only rose
to receive terrific punishment and going
down again as soft as possible.
Finally his seconds, seeing that fur
ther perseverance would be worse than
useless, intimated that Slavin had most
effectually defeated McAuliffe. The
announcement occasioned a scene of the
wildest enthusiasm. The fight was for
1.000 pounds and the Police Gazette
championship belt.
The Stockton Race*.
Stockton, Cal., Sept. 26.—The first
