Aug. 3. Supreme
Somerby, of the
U USLltC i- lUlilUUll IS.
..Order of the Iren Hall, arrived here
Monday night and spent meat of the
evening In consultation with his at-
' terneys. He says that he has been
spending the last two weeks en an
Islapd above Detroit and did uet hear
ef'thc application for a receiver for the
eracr untu saiuruay nigiu, waen nu ar
ranged te ceme here at once.
In regard te the charges made against
hlm personally he said: "I propose te
say nothing. The proper tribunal te
try that case Is the court and net the
newspapers. I have net read the com
plaint and only knew in a general way
what he charges are. Therefore I pro
pose te say nothing. My accounts are
all right and I am net afraid te have a
thorough Investigation of them."
"Is'it true that there Is new ?r,00,000
of Iren Hall moneys In an Indianapolis

Mr. Somerby "made no answer te this.
"At the time of the Keystone bank
failure in Philadelphia, Mr. Somerby,
did you or any one by your authority
draw from the banks in this city WOO,-
000 and take it te Philadelphia for the
benefit of the bank .there?"
Mr. Somerby replied: "I must again
remark that en this subject the Phila
delphia matter is an Important factor
In this suit, and it would net be proper te
talk. I believe that the assets of the
bank are mere than sufllcient te take
care of any funds that the Order of the
Iren Hall may have en deposit there. I
am going te examine thoroughly before
1 talk te any one, and I have no fears
ier the result"
Mr. Somerby positively declined te
make any further statements. He will
attend a meeting of the executive com
mittee Tuesday afternoon.

Nashville, Tenn., Aug. 3. Affairs at
Ceal Creek, the scene of last winter's
miners' troubles are net by any means
in a very encouraging condition. It
seems the miners are growing restless
under the continued presence of troops
and their enforced subjection and
find many sympathizers among
the tneuntalncers. Numerous out
rages have been committed of late
en soldiers sent out singly and the situ
ation has become se strained thtvt.lt has
been deemed advisable te increase the
force of guards, se last night thirty
mere recruits who hed been advertised
for were sent out from Knoxville.
Most of these were members of local
military companies. Commandant
Andersen is authority for the statement

se many scares raised regarding the
stability of the order," saUl he, "that
it teices something out of the ordinary

among the members here." Several

Washington, Aug. 3. Several re
cesses of the house were taken Tuesday
morning, with a view te reaching, a
harmonious agreement. During these
recesses about forty of the - democrats
assembled In the ways and means committee-room.
Beth sides were repre
sented, but many democrats remained
in the hall of the house, Indifferent te.
the proceedings of the conference.
The World's fair representatives, who
had net, se far, made any offers te com
promise, were In the conference thla
morning, called en te offer some propo prepo
sitions as a basis of agreement. The
outeemo Is uncertain. One preposition
Is that an appropriation smaller than
$3,000,000 be made, but while this is in
line with the views of the economists,
the southern men generally arc against
the principle of a government donation
or a lean.
Thc hour of the last recess expired
and apparently an agreement was al
most as far away, as no progress had
been made toward a conclusion. Rep
resentative Durborow would make no
compromises and told the opposition te
the Fair appropriation that the only ap ap ap
propesltlon he had te make was that
the filibusters surrenders.
Representative Williams, of Illinois,
came forward with a new preposition,
which was received with considerable
favor by the members of the committee
who are net radical en either side of the
This preposition was that an agree
ment should be reached te consider the
vote by which Mr. Blngman's motion
of concurrence in the senate amend
ment was carried and that the sundry
civil service bill should then ba
cent te tlic conference te disagree te the
preposition of the senate, and in its stead
te substitute a preposition providing
for the coinage of 5,000,000 half-deUar
senvenlr coins te be given te the fair.
This money was te be given as a direct ,
appropriation, and the conferees were
te frarae the preposition se as te strike
out all previsions making the govern
ment a partner In the fair. This propo prepo
sition Is said te have met with seme fa

and Durborow, and the latter gentle
man was net prepared te say what he
thought of it, wanting time for consul

te urge all such absentees te return at
