"Washington, Feb. 1. Immediately
after the senate convened ut noon
Senator Sherman moved an executive
session, stating that It would require
but u short time. When the doors
were closed he reported the general
treaty of arbitration ns amended Hat
urdny by thu committee. The (list of
these amendments, ns previously stat
ed, In these dispatches, adds at the
end or the llrst article the clause:
Hut no question which affects the for
eign or domestic policy of either of the
high contracting parties or the relations
of either with nny other state or power,
by treaty or thorwlse, shall bo subject to
arbitration under this treaty, except by
The second strikes out all reference,
wherever It .occurs, to tho King; of
Sweden und Norway as the umpire
where the tribunal falls to agree upon
After the report was made Mr. Sher
man asked that, Inasmuch ns tho text
of the convention had been made pub
lic tho Injunction of secrecy bo re
moved from the text of the amend
ments, but Senator Morgan objected
and tho request was denied. No at
tempt was made to arrange n tlnid for
the consideration of tho treaty nor was
anything suld about debating It In
GOVERNMENT OP DELAWARE.
A resolution was offered by Mr.
Chandler, of New Hampshire, nnd was
referred to the committee on privi
leges and elections Instructing that
committee, to Investigate the recent
presidential and state election in Dela
ware and report to the senate whether

ists in thnt state. The Nlcaraguan
canal bill was taken up and an unsuc
cessful effort was made to have a day
and hour llxed for a final vote. The
discussion then proceeded on Mr. Vi
las' motion, submitted last Thursday,
to have the bill recommitted. Mr.
Vilas spoke of the inter-oceanie canal
project us a historic dream nnd quoted
Senator Sherman's statement the oth
er day that the canal could not be
constructed by any Incorporated com
pany, and must be built, if at nil, by
the government: nnd also that the bill
could not possibly pass tho house In
the present congress.

trial by Dr. Johnston's nt.torneys,
February IS hns been llxed when the
application will be argued. When Dr.
Johnston- was brought Into tho court
room lie looked pale and anxious, more
ho than at nny time since the trlul
begun Wudncsdny a week ago, and
when the. verdict was announced he
fame very near fainting. It wus a
big surprise to him, It having been
learned that he had expected a verdict
of acquittal. Mrs. Johnston became
hysterical at the Rhlnosmlth hotel,
where she Is stopping. The court room
was well filled with spectators and tho
excitement here Is very gront, while at
Duncannon the people are pleased with
the verdict. Had Dr. Johnston been
acquitted ho would not have been re
leased, but sent to some Insane asylum
by Judge Lyons for at least three
months, or until he had sufficiently re
covered from the delusional Insanity
under which he Is laboring.
This hns been the most expensive
trial Perry couty has over had, nnd It
Is estimated $15,000 will not cover the
cost of attorneys' fees, etc. Drs.
Moulton, Wood and Mills, the expert.-
on insanity, are credited with receiv
ing $1,000 each, while throe of Dr. John
ston's attorneys, Hergner, Shull nnd
Sclbert, got $1,000 each, and Mr. Heck
Is said to have gotten $3,000, and $2,000
addltlonnl If his client is acquitted.
The four counsel for the, common
wealth, ex-Judge Harnett and son, ex
Senator Smiley and Mr. Weidman, are
said to have received $300 each. There
were over 110 witnesses present for
MONTROSE MURDER CASE.
John and Michael Kellcy Must Answer
for the Cowardly Killing of
Leon D. Gage.
Montrose, Feb. 1. Tho trial of John
and William Kelly, charged with tho
murder of Leon D. Gngc, at Hrack
neyvlllo, ou Aug. IB. last, wlll occupy
the attention of the court of quarter
sessions of Susquehanna county this
On Saturday, Aug. Iu, 1S9G, John and
Mlchnel Kelly attended a picnic nt
Quaker Lake. When evening came
they drove to Ward's hotel at Brack
neyville, about a mile distant, and lo
cated fourteen miles from Montrose.
They had had considerable liquor at
the picnic, nnd as their appetites
craved more, they proceeded to satisfy
their desires. About 11 o'clock thoy
became angry at a remark made by
Thomas. Guhugnn, and assaulted hiin
In the hotel bar room. Thomas Ward,
the proprietor, ejected the Kellys.
Gahagan left the hotel about mid
night and had scarcely reached the
street before he wns attacked by the
Kellys, who had been waiting outside.
Ward and Gage ran outside to act as
peacemakers. Gage reached the bellg
erent trio sooner than Ward, as the
latter Is lame. When Ward arrived
a few seconds Inter, Gage lay on the
ground. He wns barely able to gasp:
"Tom, he's got a knife; It's there,"
pointing to John Kelly's right hand.
Ward grasped Kelly's hand and called
for assistance. Patrick Donovan, who
was some distance from the scene,
came to his aid. and Anally Kelly was
overpowered and the knife taken from
his hands, but not before Donovan had
received a bad cut upon his arm, Ga
hagan nnd Michael Kelly, who had
been fighting during the meantime,
were separated; then attention was
given to Gage, who was already un
conscious. The Kellys disappeared un
rirr the cover of darkness, but were
soon after arrested.
After taking Gage Into the hotel a
huge gash was discovered In his groin;
the femoral artery had been complete
ly severed, und he soon died.
FIRE AT FACTORYVILLE.
Mrs. J. T. Bush Has a Narrow Escape
from CremationResult of Ex
plosion of Gasoline.
Speclal to tho Scranton Tribune.
FuctoryvillP, Feb. 1. This afternoon
nt 2 o'clock un alarm of fire was sound
ed from the north end of town, and It
was soon discovered that the residence
of J. T. Bush, on Main street was on
fire. The Langstaff Hose company very
promptly responded to the alarm, und
In a few minutes had a stream on the
llnmes, which were confined to the west
corner of the house, but which had
eaten their way through the partitions
and between the walls to the roof. The
efficient work of the firemen soon told
on the fianies and In about an hour
the fire was declared out.
The tiro wus caused by the explosion
of a pan of gasoline with which Mrs.
Bush was cleaning some dress goods.
She had a very hot fire in the kitchen
range for baking purposed, and the
overheated atmosphere caused the gas
oline to explode while Mrs. Bush had
her bunds in It. She ran out doors en
veloped In ilames and her son happened
to be near and by rolling her In the snow
extinguished thpni, although Mrs.' Bush
is quite seriously 1311111611' about the
hands and arms and her hair Is badly
Prank Bush wns also burned about
the face and hands. The firo was con
fined to three or four rooms, but the
damage by water Is nearly as much as
by fire. The loss an building and con-.
tents will perhaps reach $500 and no in
surance on house or contents.

MARKETS AND STOCKS.
Wall Street Review.
New York, 'Feb. 1. Stocks were Ir
regular, but In tho mnln firm. The Ir
regularity wns attributed to the desire
of the senate committee to amend the
general arbitration treaty. London
firms sold fairly large amounts of tho
international stocks on this account
nnd professional operators short of tho
mnrket attempted to force liquidation.
Very little Impression wns made on
prices, except In a few Instances.
Manhattan and Lackawanna, how
ever, were rather feverish nn.il did not
receive the support accorded the gen
eral list. There was good buying of
the Northern Pacifies and the new
preferred rose to within a fraction of
3D. Louisville and Nashville was
higher on the favorable remirt for De
cember. In the industrials, Chicago
Gas was in request. Speculation
closed Irregular, but In the main linn.
Not changes show losses of al per
cent. Western Union, Northern Pa
cific preferred and Omaha, however,
gained Va. per cent. Total sales
were 1S,",000 shares.
