liver bill, and that measure would be
passed in spite of all opposition. No such
action as this circular, no methods adopt
ed by the opponents of free silver would
prevent the passage of a free coinage bill.
Good ltemoerat and Able fanner.
Harter replied that his action was pre
meditated, and he was responsible for it.
He was too good a Democrat not to warn
his party aysinst this folly of passing a
free coinage bill. He wa not a part owner
in a national bank. He was more of a
farmer than almost any man in the house.
He was as good a Democrat as any man
here, but was opposed to class legislation
whether it came under the head of a pro
tective tariff, or whether It was a silver
coinage bill. He was in favor of free trade
in every article which he produced as a
farmer. He was opposed to giving to the
producer of silver bullion the earnings and
savings of the people by legislation, and
be was equally opposed to giving it to the
manufacturer. lie favored an abundance
of money of the rinht kind, hut the money
Bland proposed would not furnish one dol

Free silver a Currency Contractor.
1 would promptly, visibly, radically,
and dangerously contract the currency of
the country. If a free coinage bill was
passed it would be equivalent to electing
Jienjamin Harrison. This would be done
by the action of the Democratic house un
der Bland's leadership on the silver ques
tion. Of course the Republicans wanted
the Democrats to pass a free coinage bill.
Vhy should not they? It would elect
their president. llelielieved in consistency,
but a free coinage bill was not consistent.
The circular he issued was to inform the
pensioners of the danger of this silver bill.
If it were passed the pensioner would lose
80 cents on every dollar he received for his
pension. He would rather pay off the
members of congress in money worth TO
cents on the dollar. Turning to Simpson
(Farmer's Alliance) of Kansas, be said that
the corn of Kansas should lie made a legal
tender, and not the silver of Colorado.
Had Fun Over His Ueeord.
Bland then sent to the clerk's desk the
congressional directory and had Harter's
biography read, amidst great laughter.
He was mentioned as a member of the
Cohden club of London, the Reform club
t New York, the Young Men's Demo
cratic club of Cincinnati, and other or
ganizations. Bland denied that he was
not a Democrat. He had never voted any
other ticket in his life. "The gentleman
from Ohio Harter still holds with John
Sherman on the silver question," said
Harter replied: "No sir, John Sherman
holds with me." Great laughter.
A Troposal to Swap Watches.
Harter then said: There U no differ
ence between the gold and silver dollar. I
have no gold except this" pulling out his
gold watch and shaking it at Bland, who
whipped out a large silver watch, and
offered to exchange with him. Loud
laughter and applause all over the house.
Buchanan of New Jersey inquired when
the gentleman got their watches fcout."
Continued laughter. He favored free
dom for every man, woman and child iu
the country. Let then say whether they
wanted to take this silver money or wheth
er they would let it alone. This closed t he
diverson and the bouse returned to its
mutton, the Indian appropriation.
What Some of the Statesmen Think.
Cable says that a free silver bill cannot
be passed at this time. Bynum says he is
in favor of the free coinage of silver; that
bis people are in favor of it, but that they
do not think the tariff question should be
clouded by the discussion of silver at this
time. Senator Carlisle aid yesterday that
free silver would in his opinion
be beaten in both house and
senate if Senator Hill, of New York, did
not throw his influence on the side of free
silver in order to win the support of the
south and west in the national convention.
The opponents of free silver are well
satisfied with the outlook.
THE TRUTH ABOUT THE INDIAN.

"Washington, Feb. 10. While the house

yesterday Smith of Arizona got the floor
and talked about Mr. Lo in a manner that
showed that he had no love for him. In

WHY HE EXTENDED THE BONDS.
Secretary Foster Replies to a Resolution
of the House.
W vsiiingtox, Feb. 19. In rep'.y to the
house resolution inquiring by what au
thor ty he had extended at a lower rate of
interest certain 4-j' per cent, bonds Secre
tary Foster sent a letter to the house in
which he closes as follows: "The author
ity under which the bonds were permitted
to continue as a part of the interest bear

thorized their issue. As stated above the
bonds did not become due. Thel'nittd

their redemption indefinitely, mean
while paying to the holders quarterly, as
it should accrue, the interest thereon. But
some of the holders were willing, without
imposing any conditions, to accept a lower

bond, and ti:e offers of such holders to
take the lowr rate, when accompanied by

WashixuTos, Feb. 1. The principal
speeci made in the senate yesterday was
that of Palmer of Illinois iu favor of elec

argument was that senators elected by
such a method would be better representa
tives of their states than they are now, for
the p.-ople is the state. He was warmly
congrmilated. The president's message
asking an inquiry into the matter
of tie Choctow Indian appropria

Protection fur Alien ltesitlent.
WashfsgtS, Feb. lit. Senator Sher
man t as asked last evening w hether the
resolution introduced by him iu the senate
yestert.ay in regard to offences against
foreijir. residents of the United States had
any sp.-cial significance in connection with
the rumored prospect of renewed diplo
matic relations with Italy. He said it did
not; th it it was an effort to give alien
residents of this country the same protec
tion given our own citizens when we have
a treaty with the alien's native country
which i-equires us to do so. The proposed
law wiuld give alien victims of the
American mob the right to apply to
United States courts for protection and
indemnity, and would apply to the Chinese
as well as others.

Paris, Feb. 19. The American colony
has been startled by a terrible tragi dy
which occurred at Cannes Wednesday
evening. Edward Parker Deacon, a citi
xen of the United States and a member of
an important banking firm in this city, re
turned unexpectedly Wednesday night to
the Hotel Splendide at Cannes, where he
has been stopping during the winter with
bis w ife. After exchanging a few words
with the porter on duty, Mr. Deacon rnn
up-stairs to his wife's bedroom, burst in
the door, and found her there in company
with M. Emile Abcille, a Frenchman who
was a friend of Mr. Deacon.
Shot His Betrayer I) end.
It seems to be clear from the appearance
of both Mrs. Deacon and M. Abeille, who
was in her company, that the husband had
good grounds to conclude that his wife
had been unfaithful. He found his wife in
bed and M. Abeille standing only partly
uresseu oy ner oeusme, evidently having
sprung out of bed with the intention of es
caping w hen he heard the noise at tl edoor.
Afterexchan'ing a few hot words with M.
Alieille Mr. Deacon pulled a pistol and shot
i renciiiueii, w no leu to me. tloor dead.
The F.rrinij Wife's Terror.
W hile this was going on Mrs. Deacon
moaned with terror. She crawled from
the bed, fell on her knees and niteouslv
implored him to sjiare her. After killing
tne nest rover of bis honor Mr. Deacon
turned on his wife and said: 1 have a
good mum to kill you as I have killed that
dirty dog, but killing is t. good for you.
You shall be reserved for a worse fate.
Yon shall live to have the linger of scorn
poiMed at you during the re-t of your
life. Never let me see your deceit fufface
Spattered with Her Paramour's Blood.
Mrs. Deacon was picked up insensible by
the hotel attendants and a crowd of guests
who had been ait raited by the sound of
the shooting. In falling the woman had
bespattered herself with some of the bloi d
of the dead man, and the first imoressii.n
was that Mr. Deacon had killed her after
or lefore killing Abeille. But she soon re
vived. Mr. and Mrs. Deacon were leaders
at all the social gatherings frequented by
me very best ieoiIe on the l!n a-ra. Thev
had always leen admired by their friends
ami were looked upon as beinnamost
happy, devoted couple, proud of their four
young children and satisfied in every wav
with their condition in life.
He Was a I'nNe Friend.
M. Al.tille was a prominent man-about-
iOw n. an ex-attache of one of the French
legations anil a bachelor. He seeiu-d t
have plenty of money, was a member of
several swell clubs, a crack shot, a distin
guished yachtsman, ami a good judge of
race hor-es. It is true that recently it was
whispered about that M. F.mile Abeill
who was also well-known in s.x-iety. was a
little too attentive to her. but then he was
regarded as a great friend of Mr. Deacon
and that seemed to explain matters to the
Ninsiaci ion oi almost every isxly.
They .1 notify His Deed.
All the American colony that is the
men fully justify Mr. Deacon for his ac
tion. I hey think it will have a good ef
fect on Frenchmen, who are too much giv
en to practicing w ith American woim-ithe
loose principles or morality w hich obtaii
in this country. It was evident from
the first that Mr. Deacon had the sympa

THE DAUGHTER OF AN ADMIRAL.
N -w York society shocked at the Tragic
Nkh Y.'IIK, Feb ia Mr. and Mrs. Ed
ward Darker Deacon were known among
members of the fashionable .-et, both in
this city and iu Boston, as people of ex
cellent social standing. Society is terribly
sHocked by the mmr. Mrs. Deacon is said
to have beeu received iu F.uroe in a way
that has seldom Iwn i he fortune of an
American woman. In addition to this she
is said to have been called the handsomest
woman in Paris. She and her husband
have of late years frequently been guests
of the Rothschilds at their summer home,
and Mrs. Deacon is said to have been a
special favorite aud protege of the Princess
Disgraced a Good Name.
Mrs. Deacon was the daughter of Ad
miral Chas. H. lialdw in, U. S. N., and
sister of Charles Baldwin i.ow living and
owning a large ranch in California. She
was married to Deacon w hen only about
17. Mr. Deacon lived in Boston up to the
time of his marriage. His family con
nections are all Boston people of wealth
and high social standing. His mother was
the daughter of Peter Parker, of the old
Boston Parker family.
Ward McAllister's Comments.
Admiral Baldw in is not alive to learn of
his daughter's shame. Ward McAllister
said last night: -It is a very sad aud un
fortunate affair. That is all lean say
about it. Mrs. Deacon is a woman of t he
highest possible social position. She was
received by fashion; ble society abroad as
well, perhaps, as any other American
woman that ever went to Paris, if not bet
terthan any other. Two years ago they
spent the summer iu Newport, aud re
teived every attention. "
