through "White's Pass, east of the Chllkat
Pa. The bill, or course, asks thef-e

It proposes to give the company the right
to use all materials on the route.
The bill was reported favorably, bur,
was allowed to lie over, but now It ap
pears since tiie great gold discoveries that
such a route would be very expeditious, and,
beudes, it Is intimated that British Colum
bians are claiming some or the northern
limits of tiie proposed road.
Mr. Davis desired to know if it were
contemplated to give the proposed com
pany a monopoly of the right to construct
a road on this line.
Mr. Carter said it was expressly stipu
lated that there should be no monopoly.
On the objection of Mr. Berry, the bill
went over until today.
Mr. Bate introduced his new colleague,
Mr.Turiey, Senator Harris' successor from
Tennessee. His credentials were read.
Mr. Chandlei called attention to tiie ap

Tiie resolution has been smothered by Mr.
Jones for a month or more. In the moan
time there has been some sharp verbal
correspondence between Mr. Tillman and
members of the comnrittee as to whether
Mr. Jones did or did not say that ho
would not consider the resolution.
Mr. Jones has evidently been watching
Air. Tillman as closely as Mr. Tillman has
been watching Mr. Jones. Roth came Into
the Senate this morning armed with res

his remark., which were a completoanaly

will have on the poor people of the coun

by Mr. Tillman, and there was an interest
ing rapid-fire colloquy.
Mr. Tillman If protection is to he the
rule in this country, and the farmers are
expected to bear the greater share of tho
burdens, ought not they to be entitled to
tome consideration uniler that system of
Mr. Chilton I say that you can never
benefit the farmers by protection; for the
relation of the- fanners to the manufactur
era and importers is mich as that the latter
are beyond thepower of the agricultural
"The only way to benefit the farmer Is
by striking down the system."
Mr. Tillman -And can yon conccivcof any
more potent way of striking down the sys
tem than by giving us our share and so in
the end throttle the system?
Mr. Chiltou The point lias been reached
when there Is less and less hope of mailing
headway against protection except In one
way. We must teach the farmers that tliey
can never benefit by a share in protection
robber-,-; we m'ltt teach them to raise again
the banner of free trade; go back to lite
principles of 1S!?0.
Mr. Tillman-How will you leach them
Mr. Chilton -By constantly and maiirully
standing to our guns; by showing the people
the cvllethc-protective system has wrought;
by teaching them by lessons from their own
experience. It may take two, four or ten
years, but It must lie done in that v, ay.
Mr. Tillman replied that it would be
better to show the farmer that he pays
the piper, and that he should, if he could,
get some compensation in a bounty sys
tem. Ae soon as he gets the taste of ono
drop of the bounty or protection blood lu
his mouth, he would soon destroy the
whole system by the enormity of his de
mands. Mr. Chilton insisted that the way to
succeed was to stand by the banner of
the free trade Democracy.
Mr. Tillman And what did you get out
ol the free trade majorities or 1S92 when
the Interests of the people were ignored
through tiie treachery of the leaders?
Mr. Chilton retorted that Mr. Tillman J
might as well argue that as the cause
of free silver was lost it should uot be
Mr. Tillman said there was no analogy
in the comparison. He persisted that the
quickest way to get the true Idea of the
situation into the benighted souls of the
farmers was to make th Republicans
grant an equality of benefits under pro
tection. Mr. Chilton said, further, that if the
people expected him to enter into any
scramble for protection benefits they might
as well send another Senator in his place.
Mr. Chilton made the further point that
there was nothing to be gained by the
Democracy in cither an open or silent
partnership with protection.

HELPED HIS FRIEND TO DIE
Wise Bought a Pistol for Osborne
to Kill Himself With.
Went With Him to a Quiet Spot,
Where the Fatal Shot
. ' Was Fired. J
New York, July 22. If the rematkable
story told by his friend, Adolph Wise, is
true, Major J W. Osborne, laid piaus
to kill Himself with the greatest pre
meditation and cheerfulness, aad Wise
helped him to carry them out.
But if the mutterings of the wounded
man, who lies at the point of death in
the Norwegian Hospital, Brooklyn, can
be relild upon, he received the mortal
wound ac the hand of another.
One of his friends was Adolph "Wise, of
Sixty-fifth street and Seventh avenue,
Brooklyn A few days ago Osborne, who
had lost his position in a Brooklyn bank,
told Wise causally that he thought he
would kill himself.
"I think that would he a pretty good
idea," leplied Wise, cheerfully, taking
it as a joke, he says.
"Will you buy me a pistol?'' the major
"Certainly," was the reply.
The old friends arranged to meet yester
day at the saloon bf Otto Bans, of Eighty
sixth street, and Foit Hamilton avenue,
Brooklyn. Wise reached the saloon at 1
o'clock and began to play cards. Until
G o'clock theyplayed, chatted and laughed.
Then Wise left the place. In a few min
utes Osborne followed him. The two met
on the outside.
"By the way, Adolph," said the major,
"did you get me that revolver?"
"res," replied his friend. "Here it is.
It cost me SI.
The two men sauntered along the street
toward Fort Hamilton. They talked and
joked, according to the story told by
Wlse to the Brooklyn police, and were
both in excellent spirits.
Finally they readied a cool, shady spot
at Eighty-second street, near Stewart
"Here's a good spot," said the major, and
before Wis3 could prevent him, he pulled
the revolver from his pocket, placed it to
liis head, just above the right car, and sent
the bullet into his brain. The major handed
the pistol to Wise as he fell. The dying
man was removed to the Norwegian Hos
pital, ne lay there this morning with his
mind rambling from consciousness lo irra
tionality. He is under the special cars
of Sister Matilda.
"I didn't do it; no! I didn't do it," he
"Who didit?" Sister Matilda asked gently.
"Oh, I don't know; can't remember," he
answered with a moan.

Burglars Kill G. M. Nichols and
. Fatally Wound His Sister.
REVIVE THE WOUNDED WOMAN
Then Compel Her to Show Them
Where Mouey Is Concealed Eat,
Driolr, nnd Mahe Merry While
Their Victims Lie Bleeding in
the Same lloora.
Bridgeport, Conn., July 22. Two masked
burglars who had been frightened, early
tills- morning, out or the house of George
Marcus Nichols, a wealthy farmer, living
at Daniels' Farms, a viliiige in the town
of Trumbull, Fairfield County, returned to
the house lil teen minutes after their scare,
smashed in a door, behind which they
could se Nichols and sister still searching-
for .hem, and without warning shot
They ioi.ed the sisterto tell where $185
in money was concealed and they took that.
'Xney loaded the table in thedining room
with pics and cakes and liquors, and bat
with the dying farmer and ate and drank
and made merry. They even fed brandy
and waler to him. They ransacked the
house finally. Two hours aftei their first
visit they went away, promising to leave
word with a neighbor that a doctor was
needed. Farmer Nichols died shortly after
they left. His sister, though terribly
wounded, may recover.
The crime resembles in 'many respects
anoth'er robbery and another murder, eacli
of. which oer.urred within three miles of
the Nichols' home.
The burglars, when discovered by the
aged couple, opened fire, Mr Nichols
fell dead with a bullet in his breast, and
Miss Nichols was shot through the neck.
The robbers struck a light and the two
or them picked up the dying man and
seated him in an old-fashioned arm rocking
chair. One of Ihe robbers sat down In
a chair beside him, while the other one.
Ills pistol still In hand, went up to the
woman. He grabbed her and forced her
down on the floor,
"Where Is the money?" he said.
She was (oo frightened to speak.
"Damn your soul, tell me where that
money is or I'll kill you," he repeated.
"We are poor," the moaned. "We have

in an argumentative way: "Come, now,
tell u. where the money is. IT you'll give

"It's in the bureau," said the woman.
The robber forced her to her feetandmade

to the buicau and she tat down on the
floor again. In the drawer where she
told him it was there was $G0 in bills,
lie took this and came back to her flourish

"You've got more money," lie said; "tell
me where it is or I'll kill you."
"All I have," she said, "is $25 in gold.
It belonged to my mother. I don't care for
It for the value; but please don't take it"
"Oh, damn sentiment," said the robber.
"Where Is It? We want it."
And she told him. He got it and returned
again to her.
"Now," ne said, "where's the rest of the

"Well, your brother's got some. Now
show me where, or I'll kill you."
Wounded as she was the robber forced
her to go to her brother's room, where
they secured $100. After securing the
money the robbers placed Niohols, who
was dying, on the sofa, and gave him a
drink of .vater.
One of the men then went to the cellar
and secured two bottles of cider nnd from
the pantry took pie and cake and brought,
it to the room where their victims were
and coolly sat down to the table and ate
a hearty meal.
The police are after them.

recent dispatch concerning the Bering Sea
fifcheries comes today In the form of an
order issued by the admiralty to send the

Vermont, and New Hampshire and part

would shorten the-frontler several hundred

AS TO QUESTIONS AT ISSUE.
Statement of the Relations Between
Britain and America.
London, July 22. -The newspapers here
print prominently what Is claimed to be
an authoritative statement regarding the
position of Great Britain and the United
States on pending questions. The state
ment does not contain much that Is new.
It dwells upon the determination of Sir
Julian Paunccfote, the British ambassa
dor to the United States, to exchange rati
fications of the Venezuelan agreement
before lie lert Washington for England.
This occupied longer than was expected
and subsequently there was coniiderable
correspondence on the subject of the re
newal of diploniatlo relations between
Great Britain and Venezuela.
The latter erroneously believed that the
signature of the arbitration treaty had been
effected. This,aaaamatlerof course, will
be the nexr step. Probably there will be
direct negotiations between Great Britain
and Venezuelaa for a commercial treaty.
The negotiations concerning the umpire
of the arbitration tribunal are still pend
ing. The statement goes on to say that the
failure of the Anglo-American arbitration
treaty greatly disappointed President Mc
Klnlcy. The British government had in-

duced discussions between Sir Julian
Paunccfoto and Secretary Sherman as to
whether a new tliort treaty could not be
arrived at. The negotiations to this end
have progressed favorably and will be re
sumed in October on the return of Sir
Julian to bis post.
Continuing, the statement declares that
the outlook for a satifsactory solution ot
the sealing question Is favorable. When
Sir Julian returns, Commissioners Jordau
and Thompson will po to Washington and
rt'iort the "result or their Inquiries. They
will be examined by both the representa
tives or the United States and Great
Britain, who will then come to an agree
ment as to the exact facts of the situa-.
tion. It is believed, says the statement,
that there will not be much difficulty in
this, as a wise spirit on both sides to
smooth away difficulties ought to be ob
served and tome lasting arrangement on
a fair gi e-and-take principle may be es
tablished. MORTON CADETS FAVORITES

Given an Ovation by the Grand
Stand at the Conclusion of
San Antonio, Tex., July 22. This was
Governor's Day at the Interstate Drill and
the attendance was large. Thestar feature
of the program was the drill or the .Morton
Cadets of Washington, D. C. The company
was inspected in the morning anddrllledin
In uniforms, guns and accoutrements the
Mortons were well-nigh perfect, but the
men did not handle themselves as well as
expected They were a little nervous at
the sturt and several errors were made.
Four of the men fainted in ranks during
inspection and were carried off the field.
But the company redeemed itself by their
drill, nnd arc tonight the universal favor
ites for first place.
The Individual errors were less than in
the drills of the other companies. There
weie no errors in the manual, and about
the only fault found with the drill was a
slightly ragged fire of one vollej, a
short and too quick step, and one bad
stack in the bayonet stack.
The platoon movements could not be Im
proved upon and the flank movements
were beautiful. Every man in the team
held himself in a soldierly manner until
the last command had been executed.
They were very steady and handled the
guns with ease and precision. To the
naked eye no errors were seen in any of
the Morton's manual.
The manual by the numbers was grand
and aroused the enthusiasm ot all military-loving
people who witnessed it.
The motion of the hands and the cadence
were perfect. Capt. Shilling finished the
program in thirty-one minutes and drilled
his company In a fcmall space. He read
his program like an old-timer aid was
about the coolest headed yet on the field.
The Mortons were given an ovation by
the grand stand, and are very popular
