Author ot the Measure.

Associated Press Dispatches.
Washington, Jan. 11.—The Republi
can principle of reciprocity aa embodied
in the McKinley act and practiced by
(he present administration was assailed
lor the first time by the Democrats this
session in a resolution which Represen
tative Breckinridge of Kentucky asked
unanimous consent to offer in the house
today. This resolution, the introduction
of which was objected to by Mr. Bur
rows of Michigan, recites letters recently
written by the eecretary of state, by the
direction oi the president, to the diplo
matic representatives of Venezuela, Nic
aragua, Colombia, Honduras and other
nations. It declares the action by the
president to be unconstitutional and un
just, and instructs the committee on
ways and means to report before Feb
ruary 25th a bill repealing tbe third sec
tion of the McKinley act. The president
is also authorized without further legis
lation to declare the ports of the United
States free and open to all the products
of any nation in the American hemi
sphere, upon which no export duties are
imposed, so lonir as such nation shall ad
mit to its ports free of taxes flour, corn
meal and other breadstuff's, preserved
meats, fish, vegetables and fruits; cot
ton-seed oil, rice, lumber, agricultural
implements, etc., or such other products
as may be agreed upon.
"I believe," said Breckinridge to a
reporter, "that the third section of the
McKinley act is unconstitutional; also
that retaliation is not only unwise as re
gards our foreign relatione, but really
burdensome to our own citizens, for it
imposes duties which they have to pay,
and where this retaliatory measure is
adopted once, as to certain measures, it
makes an unjust discrimination which
may also not only be arbitrary, but may
be not free from corruption."
"And yet," continued Breckinridge,
"being in favor of the freest possible
trade consistent with the raising of the
needed revenues of the g oveiument, I <
appended an instruction to report in
lieu of the section, a true reciprocity
piovision. I entirely agree with some
of the leading Democratic statesmen as
to reciprocity treaties and arrangements.
There are grave objections to them,
hut I think them better than pro
hibitory tariffs, and if we cannot
enact such revenue laws as I desire, I
prefer to see reciprocal arrangements,
so far as can be, with all nations, be
lieving that every movement toward
tree trade will serve as an educational
process, accustoming the country to
better views and practices in our com
Breckinridge's resolution appears to
be well received by the ways and means
committee. "I think very favorably of
the proposition," Baid Chairman
Springer. "Of course I cannot say what
thefcommittee may decide to do. lam
in favor of reciprocity, but whether I
will be willing to go to tbe extent pro
vided in the article mentioned in the
resolution, I cannot say. That ques
tion, however, is a mere matter of de
tail, and does not affect the vital prin
ciple embodied in Breckinridge's reso
After the introduction of the resolu

usual flood of new bills were introduced.

government to use both gold and silver
as full legal tender money, either under
the rate now existing in the United
States, or under one that may hereafter
be established by tbe United States, in
accord with other nations. It directs
the president to invite the governments
of the countries composing the so-called
Latin union, and such other nations as
he may deem advisable to join the
United States in a conference, and to
adopt a common ratio between
gold and silver for the purpose of
establishing the international use of
bimetallic money and to secure a fixity
of the relative values between those
metals. Whenever the governments, or
any three of them, shall have agreed to
unite, and whenever, in the judgment
of the president, a sufficient number of
nations shall have entered into an in

to declare the ratio so fixed to be the

Witnesses Can Nut Be Compelled to In
Washington, Jan. 11. —The United
States supreme court today, in the inter
state case of Charles Counselman, appel
lant, vs. Frank Hitchcock, marshal of
the United States district court for the
northern district of Illinois, decided that
witnesses cannot be compelled to testify
in any criminal cases where the answers
might tend to criminate them in any way,
or subject them to possible future pros
ecution. This case is one of great inter
est to railroads and attracted widespread
attention. Counselmen waa asked
whether he ever obtained from any
railroad a rate on grain shipments lower
than the open rate to all shippers. He
refused to answer on the ground that it
might criminate him, and claimed the
protection of the constitutional guar
antee conferred by the filth amendment.
Judge Gresham decided against him,
and he held him in contempt of court
for refusing to answer questions, aud it
was on appeal from Judge Gresham's
order that the case decided by the su
preme court today came up.
Admiral Rodger*' Funeral.
Washington, Jan. 11.—Funeral ser
vices over the rem lins of Admiral Rodg
ers were held this morning at St. John's
Episcopal church, at which there was a
large number of prominent people.
Among them were Vice-President Mor
ton, Secretaries Blame and Tracy, Jus
tice Gray and a number of senators, Sir
Julian Paunceforte and nearly all the
other foreign ministers, besides a great
number of other friends. General Scho
field, Admirals Worden, Franklin and
Howes, General Park, Judge Wagner,
Paymaster-Geueral Walraugh and Ban
croft Davis were the pall-bearers. At
the conclusion of the impressive cere
monies the remains were taken to the

An infinite amount of trouble has a

to take a wife to his bosom. After the
parents on both sides have ouaie to terms
the young gentleman has to work for his

very often for four years, and .sometimes
longer. During this time he must mind
his p's and q's, for if he does anything
wrong he is instantly discarded. Very
frequently unscrupulous fathers make a
practice of dismissing their daughters'
young men on the merest pretense, thus
enriching themselves by their gratuitous

Associated Press Dispatches.
Washington, Jan. 11. —A naval officer
of great prominence said this afternoon :
"The public should be acquainted with
the great gravity of the Chilean contro
versy. The investigation at San Fran
cisco is developing startling facts, and
it will be well for us to appreciate the
situation thoroughly. The evidence
taken out there shows conclusively that
the assault "••as a prearranged affair,
and the inquiry at Valparaiso the merest
farce. lam thoroughly convinced that
the assault was premeditated and in
tended as an insult to this government."
ACTIVITY OF THE NAVY DEPARTMENT.
It was ascertained this afternoon be
yond the possibility of a doubt that tbe
navy department, since the receipt of
the first news of the Vallejo inquiry, has
redoubled its preparations for trouble.
Activity in the navy yard in this city is
increased, and the navy department is
pushing every means for saving time.
THE SOUTH ATLANTIC SQUADRON.
The nary department is informed that
the United States ship Chicago, Ad
miral Walker's flagship, arrived at Mon
tevideo this morning. The other vessels
of his fquadron, the Atlanta and Ben
nington, were last reported at Behia.
They are expected to join the Chicago at
Montevideo. The future movements of
these will be governed entirely by cir
cumstances. They have been ordered
to proceed to Montevideo and await
further orders. In case of necessity
they will be ordered to Chile, but unless
such necessity arises they will remain
on duty in the South Atlantic.
THE TALLEJO INQUIRY.
A Most Damning- Case Made Against the
Vallejo, Cal., Jar). 11.—Nothing very
new waß elicited at the Baltimore ex
amination today, the evidence being
chiefly directed to corroborating that
already taken, and to showing the per
nicious activity of the Valparaiso police
on the day of the riot. Some score of
witnesses were examined. All of them
were arrested by the police and confined
for from four to five days. The great
majority of these did not even know
there had been a riot until they were ar
rested and taken to jail where they
found their bruised and bleeding ship
mates. Several witnesses testified that
the police first made known their desire
to arrest them by attacking them from
behind, striking them with the butts of
their guns or cutlasses. None of these
men made any resistance, although two
or three, startled by tbe sudden assault,
tried to run away. In such cases they
were chased by mounted officers,
knocked down and beaten. One was
stabbed by a policeman with a fixed
bayonet, and did not recover from the
wound for twenty-six days.
The search for the men who expressed
to the Valparaiso court their approval of
the action of the police during the riot,
as claimed by the procurator fiscal in
his report, is becoming almost as hope
less aa the inquiry for the "man that
struck Billy Patterson." Although
nearly fifty sailors, including all that
were arrested in Valparaiso, have been
examined, not one admits that he made
such a statement, while a. If ait two
thirds of them tell tales of brutality at
the hands of either police or soldiers.
The remainder oi the day was taken
up with testimony as to the sobrieiv of
Riggin and Turnbull, the two men who
were murdered. The universal testi
mony is that they were both sjber very
shortly before being attacked. No one
witnessed the attack on Turnbull, or
knows the circumstances. He is the
one who received eighteen knife wounds
in the back and died in a few days from
the effects. He made a dying statement,
which will probably be put in evidence
The first witness today was James M.
Tilley, colored. He testified that three
or four days before the riot at Valparaiso
he was warned by a young man on the
mole that a mob of Chileans were pre
paring to mob the crew of the Baltimore
as soon as they came ashore. He was
not ashore on the 16th.
D. McWilliams saw no riot. He was
arrested in front of a hotel on Cochran
street. He did not then know of auy
disturbance. He dodged the police and
fled, and was followed by a* mounted
policeman, who lassoed him, caught him
and struck him with the flat of a sabre.
The police put nippers on McWilliams
and dragged him roughly to jail. On
the way one of the soldiers called him
insulting names and struck him. He
never expressed approval of the action
of the police; he was unarmed aud
John Rooney spent the afternoon in
the upper part of town. About dark he
started to the Hotel Americano to spend
the night. While walking on the street
the police seized him and put nippers
on his wrist. He said be wanted to go
on board ship and a policeman Btruck
him with the butt of his gun, inflicting
a wound that laid him up for three
days. He was not resisting; he never
expressed approval of the action of the
police; he was unarmed and sober.
Warren Brown, a fireman on the Bal
timore, saw no rioting; he was on Es
meralda street with J. W. Friez of the
Baltimore. Both were sober and walk
ing quietly to the mole, when six sol
diers and a policeman came up una
wares behind them and began beating
them with cutlasses and guns. The po
lice then tied witness' hands behind his
bacK, aud when thus helpless one struck
him in the face with his fist. He was
not resisting in any way. Witness never
expressed approval of the action of the
John W. Friez, a fireman, told the same
Btory as Brown. Soldiers came up with
out any warning from behind and
struck them down. This was his firßt
intimation of the presence of soldiers.
They then put nippers on his wrist,
mangling it, and took him to jail. He
was stunned by blows and hardly knew
what happened on the road to prison.
He was perfectly quiet and sober, and at
the time did not know that any riots
had occurred. While going ashore on
liberty that afternoon the boats passed
between the Huascar and Esmeralda,
and the crews of those vessels shook
knives and fißts at them as they pasßed.
He never expiessed approval of the ac
tions of the police.
Patrick Eagan, a fireman, saw none of
the difficulties. He went into Riley's
saloon about 2 o'clock and Riley said to
him: "For God's Bake don't stay out
after dark; the Chileans are going to do
you up." He went to the southern part
of the city about 7 o'clock, and was
walking towards the mole quietly when
three policemen arrested him.
P. Gallagher, a fireman, was sitting in
a restaurant opposite Riley's saloon
when he was told that Riggin was being
murdered. He started for tbe place,
but before he had gone a block a
mounted policeman without saying a
word knocked him down from behind
with the fiat of a cutlass. A crowd of
citizens began kicking him while down.
The police rescued him and took him to
jail. On the way, with his hands tied
behind his back, members of the mob
struck him several times in the face.
The police did not interfere. He never
expressed approval of th 6 actions of the
Samuel Nelson, a seaman, was
arrested but not ill-treated. The police
robbed him of a table knife, fork and
spoon he had bought that day for use in
the mess. He was sober and quiet.
Alfred Pfeiffer, an orderly of the Balti
more, testified that he approached the
mole about 5 o'clock and found a mobof
200 people there attacking someone. He
said: "They turned on me and I ran
and gave them the slip. I went some
wayß and suddenly came upon Hamil
ton, carpenter's mate of the Baltimore,
lying bleeding in the gutter. I tried to
help him to a house, but the police
would not let me do so. I left and ap
proached the Plaza Victoria, where I
met five or six policemen, who arrested
me and took me to jail. They did not
ill-treat me. I had been warned several
times that trouble was imminent. I
never expressed approval of the action
of the police."
Edward Dudley took supper in the
Plaza Victoria. About 7 o'clock he and
a shipmate started down town in a
street car. The car was stopped by a
crowd, and tbe men got out and tried to
run away. A policeman struck Dudley
with the butt of a gun, badly hurting
him and put him under arrest. They
put catgut nippers on his wrists and
dragged him roughly to jail.
Henry Oarnahan saw no distnrbance.
He was arrested with others of the Balti-
sore's crew in the Rainbow saloon and
taken to jail where he was kept four
John Swonson, a seaman, saw Claff
Wottland, boatswain's mate, with H.
Nichols and Henry Casse, apprentices,
and others in the Rainbow saloon, and
was aIEO arrested and imprisoned four
Henry Dust, a seaman, was approach
ing the mole after dark when he met a
number of police with several Baltimore
sailors under arrest. The police at
tempted to arrest him, but he fled. A
crowd of Chileans stopped him within a
block. Then a Chilean officer with
three gold bars arounl his hat began
to beat him with his sword.
"After he bad done this," said wit
ness, "he shoved me aside and citizens
standing by spit on me. I knocked one
of them down aud a policeman stabbed
me instantly in the face with a fixed
bayonet. The wound took twenty-six
days to heal. While being led to jail
with my arms tied behind my back I
was struck twice without giving any
provocation; once by a citizen, and once
by a policeman. I was kept in jail five
days. I had been warned by a young
Englishman, a clerk in a mercantile
house, that the Baltimore's men would
be attacked about dark."
One hundred and twenty of the Balti
more's crew have been on "liberty in San
Francisco for the past forty-eight hours.
They returned to the ship today, and of
the whole number, only two showed any
signs of undue indulgence in liquor.
This is considered a remarkable record
for so large a number of men who have
not been on leave for nearly three
months, not in fact since the fated 16th
of last October.
Captain Schley said this afternoon
that he had received no orders as to the
future movements of the Baltimore. If
all the repairs were made that should
be, after a two years' cruise, it would be
a month before the vessel was finished.
All of these are not essential, however.
It would take bat twelve or fourteen
days to make Ihe most needed repairs.
JOHN mil, INTERESTED.
Two British Officers T king Notes In
New Yokk, Jan. 11.—A Washington
special says: Whether Great Britain is
or is not using her influence with Chile
to bring about a satisfactory settlement
of the Baltimore outrage, is yet a matter
of speculation, but there is abundant
evidence that she is showing the deepest
interest in the preparations for war
which our country has been making.
Our naval officers have not failed to dis
cover two naval attaches of tbe British
legation in this city. Captains Way and
Langley have been watching every
movement of the navy department
since the talk of war with Chile first
commenced. These attaches made per
sonal visits to different places through
out the country were work on war ma
terials is in progress. Only a few days
ago Captain Langley visited the Mare
Islnnd yards and the Union Iron works
at San Francisco, to see what truth
there is in the rumors of hurried work
on the coast defense vessel Monterey
and other vessels. There can be no
doubt that he discovered that the re
ports of great activity in the work on
the Monterey were not exaggerated,
and it is to be presumed he lost no time
in informing bis government of her con
dition, and of what a forminable craft
she will be when finished.
Suffering lor years with severe a'tacksof neu

without any good results. Finally I tiled Sal

Dr. Cooke'* Spook* Again.
Editors Herald : There appears an
item in yourfissue of Sunday in regard to
the writer, to some points of which I
wish to reply. The item is signed "One
who is mystified." Well, I think *ny
one in the audience will agree with me
that he was certainly the easiest man
to mystify they ever saw, especially
after all the tricks had been exposed.
The gentleman speaks of his article as
being sarcastic. Well, if he said any
thing which was very sarcastic to me I
failed to see that part, unless it be
where the gentleman (or critic), which
ever you see fit to call him, comes out
with the following: "I assert that oc
cult or psychic science has reached too
grand proportions for small minds to
toy with it in so heartless a manner."
I agree with him there exactly. If his
is one of those very small minds which
is so weak as to be overcome by so poor
a sleight of hand performance as Dr.
Cooke's, I would advise him to, by all
means, stay away from such places.
When I wrote you on this subject be
fore I only noted some of the doctor's
best tricks, taking it for granted the
others were familiar to the entire audi
ence and deeming space in your very ex
cellent paper too valuable to be taken
up in exposing such tricks as our friend
wishes us to explain. But as you have
allowed him space in which to call at
tention to them, I trust you will allow
me space in which to explain.
Again, our mystified critic (I wish he
had given his name, for I don't know
what to call him) says he thinks his
personal pride would have asserted itself
if he had caught the doctor in one of his
triiks and had not bawled it out at the
top of his voice before the whole audi
ence. We did object to many of the tricks
at the time. But what we said was
not repeated to the lookers-on.
Now, I would ask your many readers
which exhibits the most gentlemanly
personal pride, the man who jumps up
before a crowd like that was and bawls
out, "I've got him," or tbe man who
goes quietly home and writes out an ex
pose 1 of all the tricks worthy of note and
publishes it in the best paper in the
city? It certainly seems to the writer
that the former would be nothing short
of an upstart. Now, to the insignificant
tricks not exposed in my former com
munication, I suppose it unnecessary
for me to explain that the cords were so
tied that by'drawing the knees closer
together the hands would be released.
Major Toler was mesmerized before the
curtains were even closed, and that did
not take up any of the fifteen seconds.
Tbe gentleman says the committee sewed
up the coat on Dr. Cooke. I will not de
ny that Dr. Wise did this, for I do not
know positively; butl think Mr. Powell,
Dr. Cooke's hired man and notoneof the
committee did the Bewing. Anyway, if
Dr. Wise did it he did not try to make a
tailor's fit on him, nor had he any idea
what it was being sewed on for. It was
very loose; so much bo that any of us
could have done tbe same thing. No,
Mr. Whitney waß not mesmerized, nor
did he lose his watch without knowing
it. He told the doctor he had his watch,
and said he felt him take it. The doc
tor only gave Mr. Whitney one of his
hands, and used the other to take the
watch. I stated in my other letter, I
believe, that we were dictated to as to
how we should tie the strips of cotton,
and that way left Dr. Cooke twelve or
fifteen inches' use of his right hand
—sufficient to do anything he did while
in this position. I do not think it neces
sary for me to explain again about the
table, for it certainly seems to the writer
that that trick was made plain
enough in Tuesday's issue for any
one of clear mind to under
stand it. But if Mr. "Mysty" wants to
Bee it fully explained and will call on
me I will do the trick for him, as he has
admitted he is afraid to toy with the
spirits on account of his diminutive
mind. I like for a man to be honest.
"An honest confession is good for the
soul." Now, our friend says there was
an iron ring put in my hand while I
grasped the hand of Dr. Cook. Not so.
My eyes had been closed some five or
ten seconds when I was asked by the
doctor if he could move his hands with
out my knowing. I answered in the
affirmative, in a voice loud enough to be
heard outside. Then the doctor told
me to take hold of bis hands, which I
did. But the ring was on his aim be
fore I took hold of his hand, and was
then thrown on mine by a motion of his
arm which I felt very perceptibly.
Now comes the poorest of all. I am
no chemist, but if you will ask a
good chemist he can tell you
what chemicals to rub on the bottom of
the glass and what to put in the water
to make it change color. The water was
not turned to wine or not even to the
color of wine. It was almost black.
When Christ changed water into wine
he did not merely change the color.
Our mystified man refers to W. E. Glad
stone, Richard Hodgson and other smart
men and infers that we may believe in
spiritualism because they do. Well,
why not all turn infidelß because Bob
Ingersoll and Tom Paine believe that
way? If tbe gentleman sees fit to answer
this I sincerely .hope be will give his
name if he is not ashamed of his faith.
Yours very truly, C. W. Innes.

suffering from general debility. and have
consulted many physi

Vile cod-liver oil has lost
its vileness in Scott's Emul
sion and gained a good deal
It is broken up into tiny
drops which are covered with
glycerine, just as quinine in
