MAYSVILLE, KY., TUESDAY, JANUARY 7, 1902.
Held by Congress Monday on Account
Death of Senator Sewell.
REAL WORK OF LEGISLATION BEQINS.
Statesman Return to the Capital After
Their Holiday Vaeution Fore
cant of Proceedings This Week.
Some Measures Introduced.
Washington, Jan. 6. After a recess
of more than two weeks the senate met
Monday, but no business was transact
ed on account of the recent death of
Senator William J. Sewell of New Jer
sey. In his invocation at the opening
of the session the chaplain. Rev. Dr.
William Milburn, made touching ref
erence to the death of Senator Sew
ell. He referred also to the disability
of Senator Berry of Arkansas, and
prayed that he might be able to soon
return to his duties In the senate.
Mr. Kean (N. J.) formally announc
ed to the senate the death of Mr. Sew
ell and offered the customary resolu
tions expressive of the sorrow of the
senate and providing for an immediate
adjournment in respect to his memory.
As a mark of respect to his memory
the senate adjourned at 12:07 p. m..
immediately upon the adoption of the
resolutions. The seat formerly occu
pied by Senator Sewell has been as
signed to Senator Depew of New York.
Senator Morgan's bill to acquire right
of way for the Nicaragua canal is
among the measures in position to re
ceive attention of the senate this week.
It Is not probable, however, that the
right of way bill will receive consider
ation at this time, the disposition be
ing rather to await the action of the
house upon the general subject, and
then have the senate predicate its ac
tion on the house bill. If this course
should be decided on the discussion of
the canal question in the senate will
be postponed for a few weeks. The
committee on the Philippines will
take up the Philippine tariff question
very Boon, but there is yet no indica
tion as to how much time the matter
may consume in committee. Hence
there is no probability hat the sa late
itself will be able to re?.ch that qirs
tion for some time. Senator Fryo Is
engaged on his report on the shipping
bill. A bill will be introduced during
the week to provide for a commission
to select a site and secure plans for a
memorial arch In honor of William
McKinley, late president of the United
States, to be erected in the District of
In the House.
When the house met Monday after
the holiday recess there was a large
attendance in the galleries, but more
than half the seats on the floor were
unoccupied. The chaplain in his in
vocation referred feelingly to the death
of the late Senator SewelL
No business was transacted. Mr.
Ixudenslager of New Jersey announced
the death of Senator Sewell. In doing
so he paid a warm, feeling tribute to
the "citizen, soldier and statesman,"
whose death, he said, was "the great
est loss the state of New Jersey ever
suffered." He offered the customary
resolutions, which were adopted, and as
a further mark of respect the house,
at 12:10 p. m., adjourned.
Representative Jenkins (Wis.) of
the Judiciary special committee, which
is framing an anti-anarchist bill, In
troduced a measure which, in addition
to providing the death penalty for as
saults on the president, requires immi
grants to take an oath not to assault
those in government authority, and
not to publicly uphold the subversion
of the government by violent means.
Congressman Cummings (jn. Y.) in
troduced a bill to appropriate 12,000,000
for a new postoffiea building in New
York city. The bill provides that a
commission consisting of the secretary
of the treasury, the postmaster general,
the postmaster of New York, Morris
K. Jessup, president of the New York
chamber of commerce, and Oscar L.
Straus, president of the New York
board of trade and transportation
shall select the site.
The principal Item on the house pro
gram this weak is Hepburn Isthmian
canal bill, which is the special order
for Tuesday. Nb limit has been fixed
as to the time for debate upon the
measure, but Mr. Hepburn does not
contemplate a long discussion of it.
It is surmised in some quarters, how
ever, that if the proposition of the
Panama Canal company to tell its
property and franchises for $40,000,000
should be made, as promised, this may
hits the effect of opening a wider
field of discussion than at first seemed

San Francisco, Jan. 6. The French
bark Max, Captain Benolst, which was
in collision with and sank the steamer
Walla Walla, causing the loss of about
40 lives, and which was towed to this
port, was badly damaged in the acci
dent. Her Jib-boom, made of hollow
steel, was broken and twisted, and the
tip of it trailed In the water on the
port side of the vessel. Her stern was
twisted, and great gaping holes were
torn in her bow. There was one almost
at the water line and another a few
feet above. Only her watertight com
partments kept her from sinking.
The French vessel left Glasgow 120
days ago bound for this port. She wa.s
in ballast and consigned to Frederick
Henry. Her captain had little to say
regarding the disaster, except that his
vessel was closely following the rules
of the road when the steamer came
under the bows of his bark. He de
clared that the lights of the Max were
properly burning and displayed, and
that the men of his crew saw the
steamer a long time before the col

was too late. The steamer had tried
to cross our bows but had failed. Just
before the crash came the steamer
swung slightly to port, as though an
effort were being made to pass to our
stern, but the change in her course
had been too late. The bark struck
the steamer almost amidship on the
port side. For a moment they hung
together and then drifted apart. Our
vessel was so badly damaged we
thought she would sink, and under the
circumstances we had all we could do
to take care of ourselves. By daylight
we had beaten well out taword the sea

Remit ofa Falling Market.
New York, Jan. 6. In an Interview
explaining the condition of the Crude
Rubber company, which passed into
the hands of a receiver Jan. 4, Charles
R. Flint, one of the men most Inter
ested in the company, said the com
pany owes $ 1.000, 000 to five bankers.
He declined to give the names of the
bankers, however, saying they were
not worrying about the incident and
that it was not a matter of great pub
lic interest. He continued: "The public
can only be interested in the debts
which affect creditors widely distrib
uted, or the banks with which they do
business. This does not affect either.
The 20 banks who loaned the $2,000,000
owing on crude rubber are fully secur
ed. They will get their money from
the sale of rubber. The other $2.0C0.
000 is a contingent liability which
arises from me company's indorsement
of notes given to it by customers for
value received. Of this 1800,000 is oa
the notes of George WatkiOBOD & Co.
of Philadelphia, who hae failed. The
other $1,200,000 is upon notes of abso
lutely solvent companies, and every
dollar of these will be paid upon ma
turity. Mr. Watkihson informs us that
his firm has assets exceeding its liabil
ities by 84011,000. As the firm's assets
consist largely of accounts due from
10,000 retailers, it is fair to assume
that there may be a material shrink
age In their value, but at ..he worst
they will probably have but a small
deficiency. This the Crude Rubber
company will be able to pay out of la
equities in rubber. The sale of the
stocks of the Crude Rubber company
was made after a consultation with
all of the principal creditors and was
made in their interest. There was
81,000,000 worth of crude rubber sold
to the United States Rubber company
at a concession in price. This is to be
paid for In cash at tJO days, and the
money will go to the batiks which have
