Governor dick, "and the combination
has been so effected that the Democrats

SCOTT ATTACKS THE SUGAR BOUNTY
Be Says It Is Vnconktitutinnal and Void,
Scott of Illinois followed and at tacked
the McKiuley law. He argued that the
ugar bounty provision was inexpedient as
a public measure, as taking from the treas
ury the people's money and paying it to a
private enterprise. He said that the Illi
nois state board of agriculture reported
that the corn crop of Illinois for lSs.3 was
produced at a loss to the farmers of fJO,
000,000 and that this greatest agricultural
Interest had as much claim upon the
bounty of the government as the compara
tively insignificant sugar industry.
Bounty for the Laboring Man.
It was . more expedient to give every
laboring man 25 cents per day from the
treasury as a bounty. He insisted that
the bounty provision was unconstitutional
and void. He insisted that the remaining
duties should be stricken off. The effect of
protection on agriculture was alluded to.

London-, Match 16. A frightful accident
occurred yesterday iu the town of llednes
fot.l, Staffordshire, during a pcrforuience
given by Wonibell's menagerie. The
tent was fulled with spectators from
the town and adjoining villages.
In the course ot the perform
ance the riiigmaster announced
that Delhi Montano, a negro, armed only
with a small raw hide, would enter a cage of
fierce animals and, simply by the exercise
of his will power, subdue the ferocious
beasts and compel them to go through a
number of movements.
Made a Patal Misstep.
The cage which the ringmaster indi
cated was a strongly barred struclure.con
taining three immense bears and a hyena.
Just as the lion-tamer was entering the
cage he made a misstep and fell into the
cage. The heavy iron fell with
a crash behind him, cutting off his
only one means of escape. Before he
could make an effort to rise the hyena was
upon him. The brute tore the man's flesh
iu a horrible manner, and then lifted him
from the floor of the cage and flung his
body across to the opposite side.
The Hears .loin the Hyena.
The bears, which had all the time kept
tip a treraeudous grow ling, now seized the
tamer, tossing him from one to the other,
repeatedly biting him and tearing his
limbs and body cruelly. The brutes
seemed to grow more infuriated as they
tasted their victim's blood and
they kept up their horrible sport
with his body for fully fifteen min
vtes. When they were finally beaten off
and Montano was dragged from the cage
he was found to be just alive. After lin
gering in great agony for an hour he died.
