Washington', 1). C., April 5.?It was
stated to-day that tho Ctiinoso minister
had indicated to Somitor Sherman, who
is chairman of tho /oroijjn relations
committee in tho senate, that if tho ex
treme Chill** exclusion bill became a
law in tlio form that it passed the house
yesterday, tho Chines s government
would sover all diplomatic relations
with this country. With his usual reti
cence concerning pending legislation,
Senator Sherman would say nothing for
Mr. Hitt, who led tho opposition to
the bill yesterday, eaid to your corres
pondent to-dnv: "There is, of course,
only one sequel to the passage oi such a
hill*or tho enactment of such a law.
'Jiiq Chinese' minister and his entiro
suite would at onco quit' tho country,
and all relations between tho empire
oad this country would be terminated
Such intimations have come to mo
pretty direct, although uot in an official
torin, of course.
' "There it even fear that the Chinese
government, hearing of tin radical ac
tion of the houso of representatives yes
terday, might cable the Chineso minis
ter hero to at once ask for his passports
without waiting for the action of the
senate. The Chinese minister has been
endeavoring to place tho best construc
tion possible before his government and
make his government understand that
it is the general wish of tho executive
branch of this government, "While re
stricting undesirable immigration, not
to violate treaty obligations of tho ac
tion taken in 'this country, but it is a
"li 1 had had a few minutes more yes
terday I think I could have made it
plain to the house that there was noth
ing in tho cry that an army pf;Chinoso
was along the bordor waiting ttC'descond
upon this country. It pould have been
shown that instead of. Chinese coining
to this country they aro actually leav
it. Thero have been 1S.OOO departures
in excess of tho arrivals since October
1, 1SSS. Last year tho arrivals in Brit
i;h Columbia exceodod the departures'
by only 9U4."
Tremendous influence., has. been
brought to bear by Kniirhts of Labor
organizations throughout the country
in favor of the bill on tho ground that
thousands of Chinamen are ready to
come in from Canada, and compete
with American laborers.

?WAsnisaros, D. C., April'3.?Tho
Indian appropriation bill was taken up,
the question boing or. Mr. Dawes' mo
tion to strike out tho provision for the
assignment of army officers to tho duties
of Indian agents with the amendment
attached to it (as offered by Mr. llaw
lov) that whenever the President shall
be of opinion that tho good of tho ser
vice specially requires it, ho may ap
point a civilian.
Mr. Pettigrew moved to strike out tho
original provision and Mr. llawlov's
amendment,and insert iu lieu thereof
thefollowing: "Thul'resident isauthor
ized to'detail officers of the United
States army to act as Indian agents at
all agencies where he shall deem such
action for tho benefit of the service."
Mr. Palmer argued against thatpolicv
of the, house provision. Iu the course
of his argumont and-of interruptions of
it by other senators, lio appeared to be
startlod and surprised at learning that
there were Indians who were United
States citizens and voters.
"Why," said lie, "do Indians vote?"
lie was informed by Mr. Pettigrew that
tho Indians in South Dakota were citi
zen 4 ofpthe United States and voters,"
having taken their lands in severalty.
And yet they had agents ovelCthem.
"With them, I lioge; not over them,"
Jfr. Palmer exclaimoi. Ho was also in
formed by Mr. Piatt that the Indians
at tho l'uyallup reservation wore all
voters; and'Mr. Allen told liini how in
thestatoof Washington there were 000
Indians on a reservation immediately
adjacent to the citv of Tacoma who
wero citizens of tho United States and
voters, controlling in all local affairs,
even down to county matters..
After hearing theso statements Mr.
Palmer confessed that there were mat
ters beyond his comprehension," and
that this was one of tliera. To tall:
about United States citizens having
agents over them was a startling thing
to'him. It might bo truoUs a matter of
fact; but it was startling as a matter of
law. The houso provision was (ho
said) contrary to sound political princi
Mr. Dawes (having chargo of tho bill)
made an earnest appeal to the senato to
agree to his motion to strike tho armv

THE CENSUS INVESTIGATION.

Washington, D. C., April 5.?Superin
tendent of the Census 1'ortor will not bo
put under fire for 11 couple of weeks yet.
Chairman Wilcox, of tlio census com
mittee, who will havo charge of tlio in
vestigating committee, said to-day that
it would tako tho committee some time
to properly shapo matters and that tho
investigation would not bo commenced
until plans had been outlined for tlio
committee to follow. Mr. Willcox con
fessed that he was somewhat unprepared
for tho undertaking before him,but was
conlident that tlio census committee
would draw out all tho facts with regard
to tho methods employed by Superin
tendent Portor in tho taking of theelev-1
Thero is somo uneasiness on tho part
of tho Democratic leaders in the houso i
with rogard'to tho investigation, inas
much as Jlr. Aldereon, tho West' Vir
ginia lnombor who introduced the rqso- j
lution calling ior tho investigation, is
not inclined to tako an active part in
the work of unearthing tho alleged ir
regularities in tho consus ollice. Assum
ing that tho custom of many years
would bo followed, Jlr. Alderson cbnil
dently expected to bo inado chairman
of the special committee to investigate
the census oflice, in accordanco with
the report made to houso by tho 'com
mittee on rules. Tho failure of tho
house to adoDt this seems to havo been
regarded by Sir. Alderson ns a porsonal
alfrnnt.'and it is understood that he has
declined to appear as prosecutor.

Northwest?Reports of Municipal
Piioviokxce, E. I., April 5.?To-night
tho last o(Torts wore mode to talk over
tho voto ol Rhode Island to tho bounties
ot either tariff reform or protection.
Regarding to-morrow's election politi
cal prophets arc somewhat at sea as to
tho result. Tho most reliable Repub
lican claim coming from tho workers
who aro conversant with tho details of
affairs is that thero will 1)0 no olection
for tho state ticket.
Tho Democrats will liavo a slight plu
rality on sQino of tho nominees and tho
legislature will bo solidly Republican in
both brandies. Tho Democrats ad
vance no claims beyond saying that
they.witl olcct their stato ticket, but
thoy appear very confident. The new
elements aro so diversified that calcula
tions based upon precodins elections
arc not regarded with much faith by
the leaders of either party.
Congressman Turner, of Sow York,
beforu leaving this city to-night re
marked, "Wo Democrats take an im
mense interest in this light, and 1 will
tell you what *wo desire. ~ Ii tlio
Democratic state tickct should sc
curo a plurality oi G,000 votes,
even though thero should be no
majority election, aud tho legislature
should 'bo Republican, wo in Washing
ton would bo thoroughly satisfied and
would consider it a big victory. It
would show us that this stale, despite
the active campaign inado by tho Re
publicans, will, beyond doubt, throw
its electoral vote for Cleveland or some
man who is his locates."
In view of this fact, which is a gen
eral ono among the Democrats, somo of
tho Republicans think that their state
ticket should have received more ire
quent attention than has been given by
some oi the out-of-town speakers. ??
Tlio Most Exciting Ever Hold?Democrats
Split?A nollclou* Ia?ue.
Omaha, Sni!., April 5.?South Omaha
never bad such an exciting election as
tlint which terminated this evening ni
sundown. The city is overwhelmingly
Democratic, but during the municipal
campaign tho Democrat! have been
split and a most bitter feeling has pre
vailed. Tho closing rally of the cam
paign last night ended in a free fight
and predictions wero mado that blood
would flow at the polls to-day. There
were three city tickets in the field?tho
Republican and two Democratic.
To add to the intensity of the struggle
tho religious question played a promin
ent part?tho American l'roteietivo As
sociation being against tho Catholics.
So alarming did tho situation beeorne
that a reauest for official protection at
tho ballot boxos was mado of Sheriff
Bennett, a prominent American Pro
tective Association man. who responded
by sending thirtv-fivo doputies to tlio
scene oi hostilities. Several fights oc
curred, but up to the time of the polls
closing nothing serious occurred.

Chicago, April 5.?Tlio vote through
out the city was generally heavy to-day,
and at!) p. ni. it is impossible to tell
anything ot tho political complexion of
tho election. In the Fifth ward, with
all but three precincts heard from, it
looks as though Cuilerton, tho Ropubli
can-Democratic-Labor candidate, was
defeated, being 800 votes behind his op
ponent, Rhodes, who ran on the Inde
pendent ticket (Democratic).
In the Fifteonth' ward sixteen pre
cincts give Burke, Democrat, (ono ot
tho indicted aldermen) 2,000, his Repub

lidivardF. Cuilertonhas,been a'matn
ber of tho council continuously since
1S72, and has long been looked upon
and spoken of as tlio leader of the city
council of Chicago. George F. Rhode,
tho successful candidate, owes his elec
tion, it is said, more to tho fact that it
was "anything to beat Cuilerton" than
to any personal popularity.

Melbourne, April 5.?Tlio inquest up
on tho body o( Mrs. Deeming, formerly
Miss Mather, which whb found buried
benenth tho -floor, occupied by tho
Deemings at Windsor, a suburb of this
city, aud for whoso murder Dooming is
now in custody, opened in tho city court
room to-day. Tho case has lost none of
its in ft rest to tho pooplo of Melbourne,
who nro thoroughly acquainted with all
tho crimes attributed to tho prisonor,
and tho room was crammed with a
throng of eager listeners. Tho greatest
curiosity was manifested to get a view
of Deeming and he aQorded tho specta
tors tho dosired oppori'-futy by seating
himself in front of the prisoner's dock
whoro every one could plainly see him.
The first evidence submitted was that
ot tho doctor who had found the body.
Ills testimony was read.
Tho owner of the house in which the
body was found then identified Deem
ing as tho mnn who had hired thehouse
from him, giving his name as Drouin.
There was inlense excitement as the
witness gave tho ghastly details of the
finding of tho body, which ho said had
been doubled up," evidently with tho
object of saving labor in' digging tho
grave and to allow of its 6nsier handling
by tlio murderer. The police also gave
evidence of the recovorv of tho body.
Several witnesses wcro called whoiden
tillod Deeming as tlio husband of tho
dead woman. Tho next witness was
Mr. Ilirso.hfold, who went to Australia
to identify the prisoner. He narrated
a conversation he had had with Doom
ing on board the steamer on which the
accused was convoyed from l'erth to
Mr. Hirschfeld said that Deeming
had manifested extreme curiosity to
learn how the body looked when it was
found and that ho lind made a number
of incriminating remarks. At this
point of the proceedings tho inquest
was adjourned lor luncheon. Through
out the 'inquest Deeming wore a care
less look and on several occasions he
laughed loudly at eomo of the state
ments mado by the witnesses.
Upon tho resumption of the inquest,
Kate ltonsovell,-therfianceo of Deeming
after his murder of Emily Mather, was
identified by a witness named Girth ns
a lady he had seen in company with
tho prisoner in Sydney, X. S. W:, in the
middle of January last, when Deeming
told the witness that his wife was well
and that she was staving at Sydney.
An ironmonger named Woods and his
wife both tcstllie&thoy.flold prisoner'a
trowel and a barrel of cemeiitDocerabor
The place the question of Deeming's
identification boyond all doubt lie was
placed in tho court yard of tho jail with
twenty other person. Here he was seen
and identified by fifty-two persons who
had known 'him'uhiltsr fifteen aliases.
As ho wan returning to his cell through
the corridor where several of tho men
who had identified him had assembled,
he rushed upon them and struck one of
them a sovcre blow. He attempted to
hit others, bnt they eluded lum, aud
finally tbo infuriated man \vas ovcr
poworod by tho guards, who dragged
him to his cell.
It is quite evident that Deeming be
lieves tlio game has ended for him, and
a close .watch is kept upon liini to pre
vent him from killing liimsolf, as it is
believed ho would do if the least chance
Later details resnrding Deeming's
arrest show that whon ho was taken
into custody at tbo southorn cross gold
iielde, whore he was employed aa an
engineer at Frazcr's gold mino, he was
