Quay took large sums from the treasury

other wealthy friends. In hia second term
he took over $400,000 for use in Wall

A Compromise on the Silver Bill
Forced by the Free Silver Men Official
Washington- Citt, July a A story was
widely published yesterday afternoon,
having its origin in a New York World
special from this city, to the effect that
the negotiations between the state depart
ment and the British minister for a settle
ment of the Buhring sea difficulty had
come to an abrupt close, and that Sir Ju
lian Pauncefote, the representative of her
majesty's government, bad notilled Mr.
Blaine that if the American revenue cut
ters seized any vessels flyiag the British
Bag the British fleet now assembling at
v ictoria, B. C, would receive orders to
recapture the vessel. The "special," while
disclaiming the desire to be sensational,
or to "falsely misconstruo official utter
ances," declared that "your correspondent
is in a position to say positively, and with
full and accurate knowledge of the facts,
etc., and so forth and so forth.
Somebody Kvlilentlv Lies.
That there is a wild disregard for the
truth somewhere is a matter of no doubt.
The report could uot lie confirmed at the
state department, which always has noth
ing to say. but Sir Julian Pauncefote. the
British minister, was less reticent. I'pon
the report being called to his attentiou he
promptly said: "There' is absolutely not
the slightest trnth or even the remotest
foundation for the story." Continuing,
he said that not only were the negotia
tions between Secretary Biaiue and him
self still in progress, but that all indica
tions pointed to a satisfactory and amica
ble adjustment of the dilDculty. He did
not know of the slightest impediment to
a speedy solution of the problem.
Mighty Immaterial Foundation.
"The story probably originated," said
the minister, 'from the fact that Secre
tary Blaine is out of the city, and his ab
sence was food for such a conjecture. It
was generally understood between us.
however, that I should Join Mr. Blaine at
Mar Harbor and continue our conference

Well, Hardly, Brother Pauncefote.
the fact that the treasury department
nas ordered revenue cutters to capture
poacning Canadian sealers, the minister
said, does not figure at all in the matter,
If matters had reached such a crisis the
minister thought it very improbable that
the United States government would send
such small craft to defend 'anticipated re
sistance irom British men-of-war.
WHY THEY VOTED THAT WAY.
Explanation ot the Votes of Certain Sena
tors on Taking; Tp the Tariff Bill.
ashingtov City, July 8. There was
a great deal of speculation over the vote
in the senate yesterday on the motion to
take up the tariff bill. The six Repub
lican senators Plumb, Squire, Stewart,
'leller, Mitchell and Allen who voted
with the Democrats agaiust Morrill's mo
tion to take up the bill are earnest advo
cates of free coinage, and in the minds of
the speculators the silver Question was
immediately seized upon as the one to fur
nish a reason for the peculiar attitude of
the six western senators. Aldrich, a lead
ing member of the finance committee.
when asked by a reporter of the United
Press for an explanntlon of the situation.
said: "I am not the keeper of any other
man's conscience, and I do not know why
inese gentlemen voted as they did. but
believe Unit this action Is taken for the
purpose of forcing eastern Republicans to
a compromise on the silver question."
Didn't Like To Be "Elbowed."
One of the six senators said that he had
voted against Morrill's motion as a meas
ure of retaliation, "because the east has been
elbowing the west around a good deal at
this session of congress," as he phrased it.
When, later in the day, the announcement
was made that the conferrees on silver
had come to an agreement, the reason for
the peculiar vote of the afternoon became
manifest. It developed then that the re
maining point of difference between the
conferree being the question of the
amount of silver to be purchased monthly
the anti-silver men, who were holding out
tor a4.50u.0011 agaiust 4,500,000 ounces, made
the proposition for a compromise on4,2o0,-
uxi ounces. 1 his proposition was laid be
fore the silver men by Jones of Nevada.
but they insisted on the full amount.
The Silver Men Win the Fight.
In the meantime a great many dispatches
had been received by the silver men t. ril
ing them not to allow the tariff bill to be
taken up until the silver question had been
disposed of, and when Morrill moved to
take up the tariff bill they voted with the
Democrats against the proposition. As a
result of this vote, the conferrees came to
gather later in the afternoon, and the
western senators congratulate themselves
in the belief that their vote on the tariff
proposition has brought about a result in
the conference acceptable as a compromise
to the advocates of free coinage.
Not a Beraoeratlc Measure.
The conference report was signed bv the
Republican conferrees only. Senator Har
ris and Representative Bland refused to
sign It. Bland aald to a reporter of the
United Press that ha was not satisfied
with the conference report, but would pre
sent no minority report. "I have no doubt
the report will be agreed to in the senate
and in the house," said Bland. "The Re
publican party has agreed, upon it. and it
will be put through. I guess there is no
question of the president signing it."
TRANSACTIONS IN CONGRESS.
Synopsis of the Day's Work In the Na
Washington Citt, July 8. The senate
yesterday agreed to the conference report
on the diplomatic and consular bill. Mor
rill moved that the tariff bill be taken up,
to be laid aside at 2 p. m., when the sub
sidy bills come up. He wanted the bill to
become the regular order. He was sup
ported by Kdmuuda, but the motion was
defeattid, six Republicans Allen, Plumb,
Squire. Stewart, Teller and Mitchell all
free silver men, voting with the Democrats
in the negative. After some business of
little general interest, the subsidy bills
were taken up and opposed by Reagan
and Morgan, wl! wanted free shins. The
national election bill was received from
the house, and laid on the table for the
present. The canf erence report on the
ailver bill was received and read, a secret
session held, and the senate adjourned.
There was no quorum in the house, and
call had to be ordered before enough
members appeared. An attempt to recall
a land bill from the president was defeated
by the Democrats refusing to vote, the
speaker not counting a quorum, although
one was present. In committee of the
whole the house took np the bill to forfeit
lands granted to railways where the roads
nad not been completed. Stone of Mis
souri wanted the lands forfeited whom
the roads had not been completed by the
time fixed in the granting act. Pending
debute the house adjourned.
LAND FOR THE FREEDMAN.
A Scheme to Give Him Something Bet
ter Than "Forty Acres and a Mule."
Washington Citt, July 8. Coggswell
of Massachusetts introduced in the house
yesterday (by request) a bill to establish
industrial training schools and to provide
land for negroes. It provides for the ap
pointment by the president of a commis
sion to purchase ten square miles f! land
in certain southern states, to be eivided
into 160 acre lots for settlement by nogroes,
who are to pay an annual rental of five
bales of cotton, the tenure of occupancy
being limited to two years. At the end of
that time a leasehold of three yeai sis to
be assigned the tenants, who aret have
the option of purchase of the gro aid at
the end of the five-year term. Thefiovern
ment is to furnish cottages, supplii s, etc.,
and is to erect schoolbouaes on tho addi
tional tracts of land reserved iu eac 1 state.
Reed Can't Talk Back Now
Washington Citt, July a Wtile the
house was considering the land grunt for
feiture bill yesterday Payson explai aed the
bill as one that forfeited all lands where
railways have not been completed at this
time. Stone of Missouri held that forfeit
ure should be made of all lands not earned
at the time fixed in the granting at t. The
pending legislation, he said, was demanded
by the Northern Pacific railroad, whose
sealous champion on the floor of the house
for many years had been Thomas Reed.
Too Much "Spoils" in. the BIIL
Washington Citt, July 8. Ba , from
the committee on agriculture and forest
ry, reported to the senate yesterday the
views of .the minority on the bill to pre
vent the adulteration of food and drugs.
The minority holds that the proposed bill
embodies an evil as great as adul eration
in the hast of officers which it creates, and
declares that it is a bill for the increase of
patronage and will be more suco ssf ul as
a party measure than as a public benefit.
An Indlanlan Confirmed. .
Washington Citt, July 8. Tho senate
in secret session has confirmed John H.
Burford, of Indiana, as register of the land

Chicago, July a Dr. John S. Marsh
"Is one of the leading dentists of Chicago.
He is a prominent member of Dr. Thomas'
church, and is well known in south side
society circles. To-day he will stand be
fore Justice Prindiville at the Armory po
lice court, charged with stealing $400
worth of sealskins. The mere theft of a
paltry $100 worth of seal garments is not
what troubles Dr. Marsh and. bis friends.
He has mouey enough to purchase 1,000
garments at that high figure and still
have enough with which to pull kum and
his friends through a hard winter.
What the Sealskins Repreuaust.
Those sealskins represent but a portion
of the affection which he bestowed on
Florence Phillips, of 8,453 Wabash avenue.
And his trial means an expose of his rela
tions with Miss Philips, covering a period
of over a year. "I have been a dupe to that
woman's perfidy," admitted Dr. Marsh
yesterday. "I did not see it then, but it is
only too evident now that tbe spectacles of
infatuation have been torn from my eyes."
Along in the early part of 18 Mis. Phil
lips and daughter Florence, of Knox, Ind.,
walked into Dr. Marsh 'a office in the Stock
Exchange building., corner Dearborn and
Monroe streets. The call was purely a
professional one. The work they engaged
necessitated other aud frequent visits, and
they soon became quite friendly with the
Her Bright Smile Haunts Him Still.
Florence paid regular calls at the office
and, according to Dr. Marsh, he delighted
in pulling and filling her molars. She
smiled even though her mouth was full of
forceps. That smile cost Dr. Marsh a load
of trouble, Florence Phillips subsequent
ly became an assistant in Dr. Marsh's of
fice. Her pretty jeweled handheld aside
the portieres while the ladies walked into
the doctor's private room. One day Mrs.
Marsh called and was surprised to see such
a handsome attendant in her husband's
office. From that day tbe green-eyed mon
ster dwelt in the elegant Marsh residence
on Oakenwald avenue.
The Plot Thickens Thickly.
Mrs. Marsh was suspicious, and she em
ployed a detective with startling results.
She told her husband she would get a di
vorce unless the Phillips woman was dis
charged from his employ immediately. So
the attendant left the office. Miss Phillips
occupies sumptuous apartments at 2458
Wabash avenue. There she received the
infatuated dentist, whose money had pro
vided these luxuries. He showered on her
both attention and money. The diamonds
in her ears he gave to her the night he
promised to leave his wife and family
and go with her to some city w here they
could be married. She accepted the gift
and the proposition, the former with gus
to and the latter smilingly, the doctor de
Perfidious Floy, How Could Yon?
The clandestine meetings Were not thor
oughly clandestine, as the doctor sup
posed at the time. Many an evening when
he sat np-stairs with his former patient
and assistant Mrs. Marsh and a detective
stood on the opposite side of the street.
After the diamonds came tbe sealskins.
Dr. Marsh often lovingly insinuated that
Miss Phillips was not constant, but she
always replied that the north star was
not more so. The day came, however.
when, as the doctor says, there was no go
ing back or the returns, and he flew into a
rage, as only a man of 57 can, and de
nounced her duplicity aud left her ab
ruptly to return no more.
No Fidelity, No Sealskins.
So, as Florence charges, the doctor sent
to her apartments and levied on her seal
skins, and then she immedately asked "by
what warrant f and took the affair into
court. Saitl the charmer to a reporter
yesterday: "He gave me those sealskins
without any proviso or conditions. Of
our relations 1 don't care to speak; they
will all come out in conrt, I presume, and
then both sidesof the affair will be known.
So there," and with this the interview
The Doctor Is Himself Again.
Looking at this affair in one way." said
Dr. Marsh, "I am glad I was arrested. It
brought me to my senses. At one time
my relations nearly resulted in my separa
tion from my wife. My daughter and my
wife 'legged me to leave this woman aloue,
but I didn't heed them, and this is the re
sult For twenty -five years I have lieen in
business in Chicago, an ', except this ad
affair, no one can say aught against mv
character. But 1 will try to live this down.
and from now on my family will have
nothing to complain of iu my course."
He Met Ilia Best Otrl.
New Your. July a Scarcely had the

steamer from Europe, waited for them in
the ladies' boudoir on the npper deck. On

sister and several friends from Beanvoir.

A Koiaa month.
From Keokuk, Ia., Democrat.
August, 1887. was a noted month. It
gave extreme beat and extreme cold, the
results of which were disastrous . to the
public health. Cases or colic, cholera
morbus and diarrhoea were abundant and
there were numerous calls at the drug
stores for Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera
end Diarrhoea Remedy. Druggists of
this city tell us that this remedy baa been
more frequently called for . during tbe
past month than any other preparation,
and that it has proven a panacea for the
very worst cases. Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy is a mer
ItoriouB medicinal preparation for all
summer complaints for which it is recom
mended, and grows in popularity in this
city and vicinity. The sales are increase
ing rapidly and wonderful cures are re
ported, bold by Harts & Bahnsen.
