What Was Done in Congress
A DISCUSSION UPON POLITICS.
The Treatment of the Negro by the Two
Leucltng Parties the Subject of un In
teresting Dcbnte The Silver Question
Sprung in the Semite other .Dis
patches from Washington.
Washington, May 20. The scene in
the house yesterday resembled that of
the stock exchanges or boards of trade,
These unexpected and wild occurrences
were occasioned by an amendment to
the world's fair appropriation in the
sundry civil bill offered by Mr. Houk,
Democrat, of Ohio, appropriating $100,
000 for collecting, preparing and, pub
lishing facte and statistics, of the indus
trial and intellectual development of
the colored race from 18C3 to 1803, to
constitute a part of the exhibit at the
This opened the door for a wild range
of debate. Mr. Johnson, Republican, of
Indiana, attacked the Democratic party
for its treatment of the negro and for
suppressing his right of franchise. He
extolled President Harrison as a friend
of the colored man, and said that no one
was more patriotic or devoted in his
allegiance to that race. Mr. Henderson,
Republican, of Iowa, regretted that the
president and the governors of the sev
eral states had not recognized the negro
by representation in some capacity at the
Mr. Hooker, Democrat, of Mississippi;
Mr. Stockdale, Democrat, of Mississippi,
and Mr. Johnson, Democrat, of South
Carolina, made replies to Mr. Johnson's
criticisms of the Democratic party and
its attitude toward the negro, defending
it against attack. The salary of the di
rector general was reduced from $15,000
to $S,000, and that of the secretary from
$5,000 to $3,000. An amendment was
adopted prohibiting the sale of liquor on
Sunday. Pending a decision on the
proposition to close the world's fair on
Sunday, the house adjourned.
An unexpected and interesting silver
debate was sprung upon the senate
during the morning hour. Mr. Mor
gan's silver resolutions were reached on
the calendar. They had been amended
by inserting an additional resolution in
structing the committee on finance to
report a freo coinage bill. A motion to
refer the resolutions made by Mr. Mor
rill, chairman of the fhianco committee,
was voted down by 28 to 17, and the
discussion proceeded until interrupted at
2 o'clock by the unfinished business, the
treaty rights of the aliens bill. This was
further deuated with great ability till
adjournment. Mr. White, of Louisiana,
desires to take the floor to give the New
Orleans view of the Italian incident.
The silver question is liable to come
up again today, as Mr. Morgan's resolu
tions still hold their place at the head of
In the Court for Over Fifty Years.
Washington, May 2G. In the su
preme court of the district, Jud.e
Montgomery presiding, in the case of
the Unitoi States ex rel. Sam Reid, f.J-
ministrator, etc., vs. James G. Blaise,
secretary of state, was granted yester
day ordering the defendant to show
cause before tho court in general term,
on or before the Otli of June next, why
the writ of mandamus should not issue
as prayed for. This is a proceeding
growing out of tho celebrated claim of
the private armed Brigadier General
Armstrong, winch has been before tho
government in various forms for over
half a century. The petition states tLat
the defendant illegally and arbitrarily
refuses to acknowledge the relator as
administrator of one of tho deceased
claimants, or to pay to him the moneys
due, as provided for under the act of
congress of May 1, 1S93.
An Order from Mexico.
Washington, May 26. The depart
ment of justice is informed that tho
Mexican authorities has issued instruc
tions that Mr. Olrerlander must be re
turned to San Diego, Cal., tho point
from whence ho was kidnaped and
taken to Ensenada.
STILL AFTER WEEMS.
The Chattauooca Ilaplst Not Yet in tho
Hands of the Slob.
Chattanooga, May 20. For the
first time in four days the would-be
lynchers of Frank Weems have been
called to time. Although he is in jail at
Morristown, having been smuggled there
yesterday, a large crowd gathered at tho
jail and demanded admission. They ran
up against a snag, however, in the per
son of Police Commissioner Daniels, who
ordered the entiro force to the scene,
and, placing himself at their head,
cleared the streets. His nerve was ap;
plauded by the better element, who aro
tired or being ruled oy Judge Lynch.
A dispatch to Tho Press says that a
mob was formed at Morristown to lynch
Weems, but tho sheriiE smuggled him
out of jail and again headed him for
tins city on train JNo. l on the .hast Ten
nessee, Virginia and Georgia railroad.
At Citico the train was fired on by a
mob, but Weems was not captured by
TIN PLATE IN NEW YORK.
The First Factory in Operation In the
New York, May 20. Tho first factory
hore for tho production of tin plate com
menced operations shortly after- noon
hour Tuesday. It is a now branch of the
works of the East River Lead company,
at 525 to C29 East Nineteenth street.
The lead company has put in a complete
plant with the most improved machinery,
and has already 6rdors enough ahead to
keep it going in full blast for many
months. It was, however, erected bnlv
temporarily, and a much larger factory
is soon to be built, with a capacity to
turn out plates enough to fill the orders
which dealers are trying to place with
American concerns. The first experi
ment was a gratifying success, and it is
said that other companies are about to
start up the plate making industry in
THE POPE AND FRENCH CATHOLICS
A Striking Dormueiit Pertaining to the
Paius, May 20. The Paris edition of
the Now York Herald Wednesday con
tained a very important document, tho
author of which is a person of high
standing in the French Catholic party.
The document is a complete history of
the late Catholic congress, and the
writer clearly shows that it resulted in
the Catholics refusing to recognize
the pope's right to interfere in French
politics. ' Indeed, tho relations be
tween the holy see and the Catho
lics were so strained that tho congress
did not return thanks for the papal bene
diction which was sent on tho under
standing that the Catholics assembled
at the congress would recognize tho ne
cessity of laying down the arms which
they had taken up against tho republic.
Moreover at the official breakfast with
which the congress was closed tho lead
ers of the Catholic party refused to pro
pose the time-honored toast in honor of
the pope, and it was an obscure Catholic
who finally proposed the toast.
This attitude of the congress toward
the pope is emphasized in a striking man
ner by what took place Tuesday at the
meeting of young Catholic societies at
M. De Mini, tho leader of the Right in
the chamber of deputies, an eminent or
ator, an ex-captain of cuirassiers and an
organizer after the war of Catholic
leagues in Franco, renounced his alle
giance to the old party because it refuses
to obey the orders of the pope. Ho then
declared his ubmission to the orders of
Leo, and conjured all the young French
Catholics who are unshackeled by any
ties to the past to abandon their hostile
attitude toward the government and to
work heart and soul for tho success of
the pope's policy.
This pronunciamento breaks the bond
that has hitherto existed between the
papacy and the French royalists. More
over the young French Catholics havo
come forward as an opposition party,
with which the government will havo to
reckon, unless it speedily abandons its
trickery and its ridiculous persecutions.
Before ten years are over all France will
have become republican and the repub
lic will have proved itself to be inde
structible. BLAMED HIS BROTHER-IN-LAW

lor was adjudged insane and was today
removed to the Dayton asylum. Within
the past week she claimed that she was
commanded by God to kill the entire

Somerset, Ky., May 20. TipDopkins,

night. He was arrested near Green
wood. Fifty dollars reward had been
offered for his capture for shooting with
intent to kill Moses Lewis, near Green
wood. Dobkins emptied one of his pistols at

Thornton and a man mimed John Smith,
an engineer, were anested for the
About this time a man named Gra
ham, of Harmony, suddenly disappear
ed, and the accused laid the crime at h-s
door. For want of evidence to convict,
they were released. It seems, however,
that the matter weighed heavily on Mrs.
Thornton's mind. Tuesday morning sho
left her home in Knightsville, saying she
was going to Reelsville to drown herself
in Eel river.
An hour later the engineer of an in
coming train on tho Vandalia railroad
saw a woman sitting on the track. She
refused to novo when he whistled, and
he had to stop his train. This woman
proved to be Mrs. Thornton, and she had
become a chattering lunatic. He
brought her home on Ins engine.
Word was received yesterday that
Smith, who several years ago moved to
Gallop, N. M., has also lost his mind.

As these contracts may last till Jan. 1,

Manufacturers' association it should live
up to tho uecisions of the latter, and
should not resume work until the asso

London, May 20. The birthday of
Queen Victoria was celebrated in Lon
don yesterday. Last year the celebra

the year before on May 21. There was
a very largo gathering at tho Horse
Guards parade, which included many
provincial and foreign visitors. The

The American legation and consulate
were closed and the stars and stripes
flew to the breeze. The American flag
was conspicuous in many parts of Lon
don, flying over numerous shops and ho
tels. The military'display was, as usual,
the great attraction. The approaches to
tho parade from St. James park were
crowded, while tho rooms of the govern
ment offices overlooking the grounds
were thronged with sight-seers.
In the levee room at the Horse Guards
there was a large and distinguished
gathering,' while under the window of
the levee room the naval and military
attaches of foreign embassys in official
uniform formed a group. The grouping
of the colors was a brilliant and interest
ing spectacle and differed in some re
spects from tho ceremony of previous
years. Quick time was substituted for
the old slow time movements. Thee
changes made elaborate rehearsals nec
essary as much us a fortnight before
hand. The avaable space on the Horse
Guards' parade is now seriously cur
tailed by tr building operations of the
new admiralty and war office, but the
success of tho movements yesterday was
not apparently affected thereby. The
troops on tlie ground, who were under
the command of Colonel Trotter, of the
grenadiers, as field officer in brigade
waiting, comprised companies made up
from each battalion of the brigade of
guards, and a squadron of life guards
under tho command of Colonel W. J.
Gascoigne. The United bands entering

New Commercial Treaty.
Vienna, May 20. It is announced that
a new commercial treaty has been
negotiated between Austria-Hungary
and the United States on tho bases of the
reciprocity clause from the McKinley
bill. According to this clause tho
United States concedes to these countries
the benefit contemplated by this clause
and admits sugar, molasses and hiaes
duty free. Austria-Hungary, on the
other hand concedes to the United States
the rights of the most favored natio
thus practically following Germany in
allowing tho United States tho advan
tages granted by her to the members of
the Central European Zollverein.
Some time ago after the consummation
of the zollverein treaties the Unittl
States claimed tho benefits of Austria
Hungary's concessions to Germany and
Italy, on the ground of the most favored
nation clause in the treaty of 1881.
Austria-Hu-"ary replied that the treaty
of 1S81 was obsolete, but she would be
glad to me'ie another reciprocal ar
rangement, and the consequent nego
tiations resulted in the present treaty.
The treaty is received with great favor
by industrial interstates here, although
much bitterness .is felt against the
framers of the McKinley bill, which has
caused idler s especially in the mother
of pearl inuustnes. Another negotia
tion is expected to boom in tho interest
of tho world's fair, which has languished
somewhat on account of the McKinley
