A telegram from Eau Claire states that
"no reliable particulars of the reported
negotiations by agents of Frederick Wey
erhauser, for $6,000,000 or $7,000,000
worth of Chippewa and St. Croix river

prevails that there is much significance to
it. Said a leading pine man: 'There is
something going on, but it's quiet. I
don't know what it in, but it may mean

Washington City, Jan. 26. Senator Gib
ton seems to have gotten himself into a scrap
ing the report of a
speech he recently
made in reply to
on the Louisiana
sjeech was very
brief as spoken, but
as put in The Record
was a long one, and
there were portions
of it that Chandler
didn't like, so he of
8knator uiBSON. fered a resolution tc
correct The Record, and it would have come
up yesterday morning but Gibson made an
explanation to the effect that he had inad
vertently put the speech in The Record, and
that it was inaccurate. Thereupon Chandler
withdrew his resolution.
Later in the day the New HampshireBenator
renewed his resolution, ami inquiry bring-
out the fact that the omciul reporters nay that
Gibson was perfectly aware of what was
being done, when the substitution waa being
made; that he came into the reporter's room
and, being shown a copy of the remarks
transcribed from the reporter's notes, care
fully tore it up, and then deliberately wrote
tse speech which appeared in The Record.
PUBLIC SCHOOLS IN UTAH.
The Mormons Determined That They Shall
Tearh Saints' Doctrine.
Washington Citt, Jan. 20. The secretary
of the interior sent to the seuate yesterday
the first annuul report of the commissioner of
schools for Utah. The commissioner, P. L.
Williams, speaks of the efforts of the Mor
mons to establish denominational schools, and
quotes a letter of Wilford Woodruff, chair
man of the church board of education, in
which he says:
"The desire is universally expressed by all
thinking people In the church that we should
have schools where the Bible, the Book of
Mormon and the Book of Doctrine and Cov
enant can be used as text books, and where
the principles of our religion may form part
or tne Teachings or the scheols. "
Mr. Williams says: "While th laws of the
territory do not forbid the 'perusal in the
district schools of the books referred to, or
any other books, yet it is no lonrar practic
able to openly inculcate in them the tenets of
a creed. Until very recently, most of these
schools, although partially supported by taxa
tion, were to a great extent essentially Mor
mon denominational schools; and it will take
time to free them from this influonce, espe
cially from the reputation they have thus ac
quired. When we come to consider the fact
that the Mormo people are largely in the
majority, that the influence of the leaders of
the church is sufficient to and does shape and
control ine legislation or tne territory, it is i
fair and reasonable conclusion that the atti
tude taken at the recent session of
the legislature to provide no further
means for the support of schools unless it could
be shared proportionately by private schools,
was but another manifestation of the purposes
aei rortn in toe letter i nave quoted from Mr.
Woodruff. As long as this purpose Is enter
tained and advocated by the Mormon leaders
and people, and the legislative power remains
in their hands, there can be no reasonable ex
pectation of any material improvement of the
legislation of the territory upon the subject of
a public school system, or any further pro
vision made for their support by general tax
ation. DOWN TO BUSINESS IN EARNEST.
Congress Doe a Good Day's Work on Ap
Washington City, Jan. 20. Senator Cul
lom's credentials as senator for six years
more were filed in the senate yesterday. The
bill to increase the maximum for foreign
money orders to $ 1(X) was passed, as was the
pension and military academy appropriations.
The vote for the relief of the Louisiana state
bank was reconsidered owing to new facta
which have come to light, and the bill was
recommitted. The anti-trust bill was taken
up and an amendment agreed to
making a trust liable for damages
to those who are injured therebv.
An amendment was offered bringing under
the penalties provided any one who shall act
as manager, agent, etc., of a trust ninety
days after the passage of this bill, and deliate
was going on when the bill was laid aside and
the Union Pacific funding bill taken up, but
nothing was done on it and another amend
ment to the anti-trust bill was offered mak
ing the act apply whether the trust is a home
or a foreign concern. The District appro
priation bill then came up and passed with
an amendment appropriating $200,000 for a
zoological park on Rock creek. Thirty pri
vate pension bills were then passed, including
one increasing the pension of Mrs. Gen. Rous
seau to $100 per month, a brief secret session
was held and the senate adjourned to Mon
The house spent the day on the sundry civil
bill and adopted the amendments proscribing
steam-plate printing pressesa in the bureau of
engraving and printing. The amendments
provide that no money is appropriated for
repairs to the presses; that 1 cent per 1,000
impressions be paid the inventor as royalty,
and that unless he accepts this with the $300
already paid as royalty on each press his ma
chines shall not be used after the present fiscal
year. The appropriations for lighthouse re
pairs and light-keepers' salaries were increased
by the addition in the aggregate of $00,000
an amendment appropriating $150,000 to in
vestigate the arid land irregatlon question
was offered and a proposition to make the
amount $290,000 made, but the committee rose
and an appropriation by Joint resolution of
$500,000 to the heirs of Capt. Eads for jetty
work was reported and referred. A recess
wla taken to 7:60 at which time twenty-nine
private pension bills were passed, and the
Foran Explains a Remark.
Washington City, Jan. 20. During the
debate on the steam plate-printing presses in
the house yesterday Foran had read a report
that he bad said that he was glad that the
country had nearly reached a condition "when
no individual had the right to employ an
American freeman without permission of
society." Butter worth, he said, had re
marked: "We have nearly reached a condi
tion of things in this country when nobodj
has a right to aischarge," and he Foran bad
replied: "I am glad of if He had had ref
erence to the notorious fact that employen
did discharge their men because they wer
American freemen, because they belonged tc
octettes and because they exercised the right
to vote as they pleased.
AN EXTRA SESSION NECESSARY.
Barrows la Positive on That Point Talk
Enough on tho Tariff.
Washington City, Jan. 26. "I shall tell
President-elect Harrison," said Representa
tive Burrows, one of the most prom i net can
didates for the speakership, to a reporter,
"that not to have an extra session will be to
gamble with fate and court defeat. An ex
tra session la an absolute necessity. ' To post
pone the meeting or the Fifty-first congrest
until December will make it a physical im
possibility to accomplish the legislation which
the con try needs before the campaign of 1890.
The Republican party must meet the expect
ations of the Deooie. It has nrnmianrl in W.
islate for the soldier, revise the tariff and pass
some suna oi an election law which will giv
ttf freedom ajid security of elections through
out tue country. The taking of the cen
sus and the demand of the territories
for admittanco, together with the settlement
of the thirty contested election cases, must all
be provided for, and it will be impossible tc
do it all before the beginning of the campaign.
If we do not mt until December the result
will be that we will go into the campaign
with our promi unredeemed and subject tc
the just criticisms of the people."
"Do you think that the tariff question will
have to be gone over again in the next house?"
"I do not. 1 he extended discussion had
upon the question in the bouse, the debate in
the senate, and tne bearings which the senate
committee has gi ven to the representatives ol
the various indi stries, seem to me to be all
that is either necessary or desirable."

Berry Was a Little 'Off," That's All.
Washington City, Jan. 20. It is now

former; that Cn.in did not strike Berry, but

At Loggerheads on Inter-State Commerce.
Washington City, Jan. 26. The con
ferrees on the inter-state commerce bill had
another meeting yesterday and agreed to dis
agree. The report will be made to the house
in a few days. The principal point of disa

diction on state courts equality with United
States courts for the trial of cases originat
ing under the inter state commerce act. The
senate conferrees flatly refuse to agree to this
amendment, and the bouse conferrees as per-
sisuinuy insist uj on its aaoption.

New York, Jan. 2. The Herald's Wash

and authentic cabinet news leaked out here
yesterday when a gentleman very near to Mr.
Blaine announced to a few of his friends that
Mr. Blaine has actually heeu offered the
secretaryship of suite, and has signified to Mr.
Harrison that be will accejit.
"This is authentic, the gentlemen told his
club friends. "1 am able to slate it as a fact,
and two places a.-e now settled. Mr. Blaine
will be Mr. Harri ton's secretary of state and
Mr. Wanamaker, who is a close friend of Mr.
Blaine, his postmi.ster general, not secretary
of the navy as the newspajiers have it. The
treasury will g west, and Mr. Harri
son has urged Seuator A4hson to ac
cept it; but if he declines some
other western man will lie found.
Nothing else is settled, and it is my belief
th t no other persm will lie decided on until
Mr. Blaine and M. Harrison have either met
to consult or have fully interchanged ideas on
the cabinet question by letter. Now that Mr.
Blaine has decide to actjpt the state deiart

AGREED ON AN AGREEMENT.
The Railway Presidents at Chicago Gel
Things t ery Nearly to Their Liking.
Chicago, Jan. :i0.-The president of th
western rouds reconvened at the Grand Pa
cific hotel yesterday, and during the day set
tied all differences in regard to the agreement
for the proposed inter-state commerce rail
way association, with the single exception ol
territory. This h.tter question was brought
up just before adjournment last night, and a
there was some difference of opinion in regard
to the limits of th new association, it was r
ferred to a committee. This committee wili
submit a report to the presidents at theii
meeting to-day, a hich, if adopted, will con
elude the labors of the presidents.
The representat on at yesterday's meeting
was larger than t n Thursday, all Jhe roach
necessary to the a jreement being represented
with the single ex xption of the Illinois Cen
tral. The agreement formulated at the New
York meeting waii taken up section by sec
tion and many minor modifications and
changes were ma le. The clause providing
arbitration for ttia settlement of dispute
caused more discussion than any other. It
was finally agreed to adopt the clause at
originally drawn, with the exception of th
section referring t a rates. If the arbitrators
award fixing rate is not satisfactory, any
road, by giving U n days' notice, can estab
lish ita own rates. It was also agreed to re
fer all questions arising under the agreement
to one arbitrator instead of three, as pro
vided in the original agreement. The arbi
trator, however, s lall huve the right to call
two other perrons who shall act in
an advisory eipaeity in matters In
regard to which tl e chairman is not fully in
formed. As all ti e roads, except the Illinoii
Central, necessary to the agreement are in
favor of it, railroa 1 officials feel very sanguln
over the result of the two days' meeting. A
communication fiom Manager Jeffrey wa;
received by one of the managers stating that
while the Illinois Central waa in harmony
with the object of the proposed agreement,
its management w ia of the opinion that the
present agreement I were good enough, and
that an agreement, among presidents waanc
better than an iigreement among general
It is expected th it the presidents will roakt
short work of the question of territory. Fol
lowing their adjournment a meeting of the
managers will be ield next week, when the
details of the new railroad aatociatien will be

Indianapolis, Jan. 20. Joseph A Moore,
the Connecticut Mutual Life defaulter, hat
for several years been one of the most popular
and influential business men in Indianapolis.
He owns a fine residence in this city, but his
special pride was Tanglewood farm, his coun
try place. There he had a lieautiful houst
and hundreds of head of fine cattle, scores of
blooded horses, and thousands of dollars worth
of barus and other improvement. His family
has for many years lieen intimate with thai
of Oen. Harrison, and last summer it was ar
ranged that the general should spend his
nights at Tanglewood during the hot season.
He wont out there one night, but concluded
that it was no cooler than his own house, and
did.not repeat the trip. Mr. Moore is a vestry
man in St. Paul's Episcopal church, to which
the Hendricks and other leading families
Mixire has not yet leen arrested and no
criminal proceedings have been liegun against
him. He is remaining tn seclusion in the
city and positively refuses to see anybody or
say anything for publication about bit!
W. (i. Abbott, vice president of the Con
necticut Mutual Insurance company, is here
with an expert accountant, and it is through
their efforts that Moore's dishonesty was
made public. It is thought his defalcation
will be considerably in excess of 500,000. He
was also agent for the German-American,
Firemen's Fund, City of London, and Impe
rial of London insurance companies, and is
supposed to be short in his accounts with
them. Nothing definite is known about this,
Latkr. A reporter yesterday succeeded
in obtaining an interview with Mr. Moore.
He is at present closely confining himself t;
bis residence in the city. He talked with
considerable freedom, denying the rumors
that depositors in his hank would suffer. He
stated that be had turned over to the Con
necticut Mutual property worth .HXI.OiM).
When asked if he knew what course the offl
cers of the insurance comjiany would pursue,
he said: "I have no idea of their plans. I am
simply waiting for developments, and am
entirely in their hands. It w:int it un
derstvxl that I have remaiue-l here tc
face the consequences of my acts of my own
accord. When I wm informed that Mr.
Abbott, the secretary of the company, wat
coming-out here to investigate my affairs, I
had plenty of time to leave the country and
save myself completely. I decided to stay
right here, and when Mr. Abbott arrived 1
told him the whole truth aliout the condition
of my business. I did not conceal anything,
however trivial, and then I sitid to him that
I proosed to remain here. I told him thai
be could aiwurs rind me if he wanted me, and
promised him that I would not commit sui
cide either. So here I am, wuitiug for any
thing that may come."
Moore stated that his troubles dated back
to lsso. -Iu lTU," said he, "a law was pass.!
prohibiting foreign corporations from bring
ing suit in the federal court That destroyed
my business. For two or three years I did
nothing at all and became very despondent.
Just tmfore th.it, a short time, 1 hail pone
into bankruptcy, and an intimate friend who
ha1 indorsed my paH.T was a heavy loser. I
always considered that I was iu honor liound
to repay him, and it was in an attempt to do
this that ray present troubles really began.
I hail no business, and yet had heavy running
exjienses. At the same time I was striving
to repay my friend the money he had Inst by
me. I had loaned great sums of money for
the company I represented, taking real estate
security. After the panic the bor
rowers were unable to jiay off the
mortgages and the property fell liack
into our lian.ls. It had depreciatod
greatly in value and was greatly run down
and in very bud reiair. I felt myself more
or less at fault in having placed the loans so
badly, though in reality I had done the best
that I could. I was extremely sensitive on
this poiut. 1 saw the conqiany losing thou
sands of dollars on investments that had been
made on my judgment. All these things piled
upon me. and as time jiasNed on grew more
and more burdensome. Many a time I felt
as though I should lose my mind. I was
bes.it on every side, and I felt bound to do
something to relieve myself, and yet there
was nothing I could do. At this point I went
to New York, and began to speculate in stocks.
I had fair success, too, and made some money ;
but whenever I came back here I lost my
head and everything wont wrong."
Moore declined to say how much he had lost
in stock speculation.

Irritation in Germany
Over Bayard's Position on the

Organ Says There Is No Need for the

Courtesy to Phelps.
London, Jan, 26. Lord Salisbury had a
long interview with Count von Hatzfeldt, the
German ambassador, yesterday. The pre
mier was indisposed to accept the views en
tertained by Germany regarding the Samoa
and Zanzibar difficulties, w hich he said were
inducing distrust on all sides. The admiralty
Is presei-ving a mysterious silence with regard
to the naval reinforcements in Samoan and
Zanzibar waters. It is stated at the foreign
office that the United States government is
thoroughly in earnest in the stand it has
taken in Samoa. American naval officers in
Samoa, it is said, express complete confidence
in their ability to hold their own against any
thing they may have to contend with.
The Standard's Berlin correspondent says
that Secretary Bayard's implied attack upon
the policy of Germany in Samoa has created
a great deal of irritation in official circles,
though it is diplomatically suppressed. Mean
while many persons think that England and
Germany should appoint a joint protectorate
over Samoa and that America should not and
would not object.
Berlin-, Jan. 211. The National Zeitung,
referring to the action or the senate commit
tee at Washington on the Samoan affair, says
that the measui-es for the protection of the
autonomy of the Samoan islands are super
fluous, liecause it is not threatened by any
one. The sole interest of America, the paper
says, consists in not allowing the good rela
tions with Germany to be jeopardized by a
few intriguing adventurers.
The VosMisehe Zeitung holds that it would
be a mistake to attach no imjiortance to the
measures taken by President Cleveland
merely because he is to be shortly succeeded
by Mr. Harrison. It points out that the au
thority for dealing wifa foreign affairs rests
with the committee of the senate, and warns
the semi-official press that it would lie unwitie
to try to appease the German public with

A collision took place at Clonmel yester

ECONOMY, as wise folks say.
Is wealth pronounced another way.
So while "hard times" the people cry.
The Toilet Soaps they should not buy.
Let all who buy such Soaps take care
To weigh the cake exact and fair.
And find they pay in figures round
A dollar, more or less per pound.
A WORD OF WARNING.
There are many white soaps, each represented to be " just as good as the ' Ivory';
they ARE NOT, but like all counterfeits, lack the peculiar and remarkable qualitiei
of the genuine. Ask for "Ivory" Soap and insist upon getting it.
