How Couldock Got Krcn.
A few years ngo thero was a well
known actor by tho nanio of McKcan
Buchanan, or "Old Buck," ns ho wa3
familiarly called. At a hotel nt Cairo,
in., ho met Charley Couldock. Tho
night was disagreeable; tho meeting
was a merry one. After partaking of
a few glasses a garuo of poker was'pro
posod. Now, Couldock liked the sport,
but was not an expert. Buchanan was
not that ho was ever known to cheat,
but ho nlways won. In a short time
Couldock was "cleaned out," and tho
party went to bed. Next morning
"Buck" met Charley and said, "1 am
going out West for a littlo shooting
recreation, but would like to net while
out there as well. Do you know tho
manager at Cheyenne?" "I do," said
tho old man. "Well," said "Buck," "I
wish you would givo mo a lino to him."
"Certainly," said Couldock, nnd ho

A Debate Which Shows That tho Truce
Patched Up in Caucus is
The Enacting Clause Stricken From the
Bill by the Decisive Vote
of 13a to 87.
Wasiiixotox, 1). C, March 27. Mr.
Vest presented a memorial from the
Legislative Assembly of I'tah protesting
against the passage of nny measure inimi
cal to the rights of the citizens of the
Territory until after a full investigation
by a Congressional committee.
Senator Miller (of California) reported
favorably with an amendment from the
Naval Committee, a bill offering a reward
of .$.'.), 000 for the rescuing or ascertaining
the fate of the Greely expedition,
After some unimportant business, at
12:15 the House went Into committee of
the whole on the bonded whisky bill. A
general debate ensued, closing at 1 :43.
Mr. Kandall said this measure was
more important than anything before the
present Congress. There were others
watching the action of tho House than
those directly affected by its action. The
course of legislation has been to crowd
out men of small capital. IIo opposed
the bill because its tendency was to per
petuate the system of Internal taxation,
which he abhorred, and with Thomas
Jefferson regretted that it hadn't been
prohibited by the Constitution.
Mr. MoArtoo (of. ew iork) opposed
the bill favoring the wiping out of the
entire internal revenue system. To de
feat the bill he believed would result in
the abolition of the Internal tax system,
deferring to the caucus resolution on to
bacco, fruit ami spirits, he said the -Morrison
men proposed to the tobacco men
a feast, at which they could have quail
on toast, but before coming to the quail
they must 1111 themselves with crow. He
wanted no feast of crow.
Mr. Storm (of Pennsylvania) stood
pledged to repeal the whole internal tax
system, which was a war measure, de
nounced at its origin as inquisitorial, op
pressive and unjust; one which had been
so shown by over twenty year s ex
perience. It was literally a statute of
pains and penalties, starting out on the
idea Uiat every man Is a thief, and sur
rounding him with spies and Informers,
The whisky ring was strong enough to
send men to the United States Senate and
boast of its power In the House. Why
had they not made an effort to repeal this
iw? Ihe answer Is plain. Distasteful
as it is, it was agreeable to them because
it gave them a monopoly of production hy
crowding out men of small capital.
Mr. Iilackbmn took the lloor for the
closing hour, and said: This was a busi
ness proposition, admitting of neither
sentiment nor sympathy, and as such
should be considered by the House, lie
regretted that t li if idea had not more
fully prevailed during the discussion of
the bill. In reply to Dunn's remarks of
yesterday, that but three members of the
Vays and Means Committee favored the
bill, he said the chairman reported by
the direction of the committee with the
statement that there wasn't an unani
mous report. He insisted that the bill
was just and proper; that it took no
money from the treasury, and
was approved by the Secretary of the
Treasury and the Commissioner of Inter
nal Kevenue. lie said it was not clear
that a tax upon the production of whisky
was constitutional, it was only upon us
consumption that Congress had the power
to levy a tax, The manufacturer of
whisky would export and store it abroad
for a charge varying but a trille from
the four and one-half per cent, for two
years, so it was merely a business ques
tion whether the money Is to go into the
Treasury or into foreign warehouses, and
dealers backed by banking capital and of
unlimited credit, couid export and store
the whisky, while poorer men would be
subject to forced sales, or extortional
taxation, and he was glad to find with a
search warrant that there was one mon
opoly, of which Itandall wasn't the
champion. I lie explanation probably
was that it was not located in his section
and that he wanted monopoly on mon
opoly. In reply to the argument that money to
pay the tax to carry the whisky could be
had from the banks, he said that no
banker would be such an ass as to loan
money while there was a standing threat
to repeal the tax and take away the secur
He incidentally referred to the fact that
to-day was the anniversary of the pas
sage by the House of the original exten
sion resolution of 1878.
He found it was originally passed without
limitation, the tax to be paid when the
whisky was withdrawn for consumption,
and stated his willingness to withstand
the monopolizing interest of four and
one-half per cent, in advance. Although
he denounced the Internal Kevenue sys
tem when it was adopted, he wanted, now
that it was here, to have it stand as long
as revenue was needed by the Govern
Mr. Brumtn said that if the profession
that the whisky would all be taken out in
two years was sincere, why not amend
the bill so as to require one-eighth to bo
taken out each quarter. Will you vote
for the bill if so amended? I don't think
Tin.' bill was then read for amendment,
and Mr. Ulount moved to strike out tho
enacting clause. The motion was agreed
to, i:'.l to b", when the committee re
ported its action to the House.
The Tiller Reward.
Mh.wavkkk, Wis., March 27. Chief of
Police Wason yesterday held a long con
sultatlon with l'hilip Carpeles of the firm
of Carpeles, Schram & Co., one of the
claimants for the reward offered for tho
arrest of 1'i-entico Tiller, the St. Louis Ex
I press robber, In regard to the division of
the reward, it was in Carpeles' store tne
money was discovered in Tiller's satchel.
Mr. Carpeles, for himself and the clerks
In bis establishment, demands $(1,000, tho
percentage on the amount of stolen funds
recovered lipids store. He also claims
the $,",i)00 offered for the arrest of Tiller.
The latter demand Is based upon tho
fact that Tiller was arrested In his store
I by Information given to tho police
by him. Chief Wason opposed tho lat
ter demand on the grounds that the re
ward was offered for "the arrest of Tiller
and his return to St. Lonls." "Detect
ive Matthews saw Tiller while ho was yet
on the street, followed him Into tho store
and arrested him without assistance."
Said Chief Wason: "I offered to return
him to St. Louis, but this tho Express
olllcials waived. On this ground wo
claim the reward of $3,000." Tho mat
ter 'ias not yet been settled, and will not
be until Mr. Carpeles . withdraws his
claim for the 5,000. The Express com
puny refuses to pay a dollar of the re
wind until the Milwaukee claimants give
a receipt In full for all claims.
The People Continue to Protest Against
the Inefficiency of Courts.
Cincinnati, ()., March 27. Excitement
over the verdict in the case of Wm. Her
tier, found guilty of manslaughter after
confessing tho murder of Wm. II. Kirk Is
not allayed, A mass-meeting Is called at
Turner Hall to-night to consider the mat
ter, and another for to-morrow night at
Music Hall. Henry Uoline, one of the
jurors, was severely beaten by a number
of his acquaintances in the city this morn

Hamilton, O., March 27. The cyclone
that destroyed the village of Sclpicc on
Tuesday afternoon, besides killing Win.
Winston, fatally injured Mr. E. Kales and
seriously hurt Airs. Stevens. All were In
a store at the time the building went
down. The storm followed nearly in the
track of another two years ago, across
the county to Collins, tearing down all
the fences and trees aud ruining many
farm-houses and barns. The loss Is esti
mated at $100,000.
Washington, I). C, March 27. Your
correspondent had a conversation with
Secretary Frelinghuysen, before that gen
tleman left his residence for the State
Department this morning, regarding the
transfer of Minister Sargent from Berlin
to St. Petersburg. The Secretary said
that the change would be an agreeable
one to Mr. Sargent and that this was the
most Important consideration in making
it. It was a promotion, St Petersburg
ranking higher than Berlin as a mission,
" Will it not appear that the Govern
ment has decided to submit tollismaick's
dictation In this matter?"
"Not at all. I am not at liberty to
speak on this point, but you can say that
Mr. Sargent's course has been entirely
approved by the President aud the Depart
ment, and that the feelings of the German
Government in regard to Mr. Sargent
have neither been considered nor consult
ed in this matter. If Mr. Sargent had
desired to remain in Berlin the change
would not nave been tuade."
"Will a person known to be friendly to
the German Government or, rather a
person whom the German Government
sees no objection to be appointed in Mr.
"It is likely that for the present nobody
will be appointed to the vacancy at Ber
lin. We can manage to eet along with
a charge d' affaires. When Mr. Sargeut's
successor is appointed his name will be
sent to the Senate without waiting to
bear from German v. This Nation is not
in the habit of consulting foreign nations
regarding such matters."
"But Bismarck will claim the credit of
driving Sargent out of Berlin."
" 11 there Is any credit in it, he is wel
come to the claim. I do not think that
were I to make things so disagreeable for
the German Minister here as to cause
him to desire a change of residence, there
would be mucn credit In It for me. I
could easily do it, but not without violat
ing the laws of hospitality or descending
to a systematic course of discourtesy."
" men Bismarck has doner'
"I have not said so."
