"Washington-, March 2S. The second
ftage of the but lie on the free coinage bill
will probable break with full force to
morrow shortly after the house is called to
order, when Catc-hings will report front
the committee on rules a special order
providing for an hour for voting on the
measure, and containing a provision to
prevent filibustering- Speaker Crisp is
authority for the statement that the mat
ter will come up tomorrow. It is under
stood that the rule will provide for a vote
on theMlver bill and pending amendments
immediately ufter the special order is
adopted, certainly not later than Wednes
day. Reed and ISurrows ! Not Agree.
The well organized and determined
forces of the anti-silver men will contest
every point in the interest of delay, and
every shade :f parliamentary tactics, fili
bustering or regular, will be brought
against it. The probable position of the
Republicans in the battle excites interest.
There is some division in the party on the
ubject, oue side, led by Heed, believing
in doing all that can properly be done
to postpone the bill and prevent a vote
upon it directly, while the other side,
under ISurrows' leadership.think sit better
politics to bring the bill to a direct vote
in order to place the Democratic party on
record on the question of free coinage,
lteed Will Suirt a "Cloture."
The provisions of the special order will
have much to do with the position the Re
publicans will assume towards it. If it
contains a cloture proposition it is likely
that Kced will advocaie its adoption, as
sustaining his position in the last con
gress. The probabilities are that the
special order will be adopted by the aid of
Republican votes. V. A. Taylor, of Ohio,
a Republican who voted against laying
the bill ou the table on Thursday because
be believed in putting the Democrats ou
record, says he will vote against the bill
on its passage, and it is said tbat Funston
of Kansas, who also voted atraiust tabling,
will keep- company with Taylor on the
CUTTING DOWN ON THE CONSULS.
Blount Saves i 72,000 on the Diplomatic
A ppropriat ion.
Washington-, March 'JS. Blount, chair
man of the house committee on foreign
affairs, has submitted to the house his re
port on the diplomatic and consular ap
propriation bill. The bill as reported
carries $.V1,'H less than the estimates of
the state department, and $73,000 less than
the appropriation' for the current fiscal
year. ! The number of missions has been
reduced by consolidating those of Den
mark, Sweden and Norway, of Columhia
and Ecuador, and of Peru and Bolivia.
The salaries of consul general at London,
Paris, Havana, Uio de Janeiro and Liver
pool have been reduced from $0,000 to
to fo.OUO each and a reduction of fcWO has
been made in the salaries of consuls of
less importance and in Kio Grande do Sul,
Algiers, Gabono. Bombay, Gaspe, Basle,
Levuka, Guaymas, Santiago, St. Paul de
Loando and Zanzibar the salary has been
wholly cut off and the compensation con
fined to fees.
Ho Fame for the Foreign Minister.
The report says that the facilities of
transmission and interchange of thought
In every matter connected with foreign
countries dispense to some extent with the
need of foreign representation. It enables
tho home government to communicate
rapidly and freely on all questions of dif
ference with foreign governments and to
give directions in the most minute detail.
So completely does this practice now ob
tain that we shall scarcely find fame
springing from the action of our repre
sentatives at foreign courts In the future
as in the early days of the republic. Very
much, the report continues, might be
safely done in reducing the number of our
ministers by abolition or the nnton of sev
eral countries under one mission. But not
encouraged, the report says, to hope for an
acceptance of these views by the senate or
the president it has been deemed best to
make few of such changes.
Thinking of Haying a Historic Farm.
WASHINGTON, March 38. A bill has been
introduced in congress authorizing the
purchase by the government of Temple
Farm at Yorkton, Va. This place was the
scene of the surrender of Lord Cornwallis.
There is still standing in about the center
of this farm, which contains some 300
acres, the old Moore house, in which the
terms of surrender were arranged for the
army and nvy with its commander.
Bailey Raised Points of no Quorum.
Washington, March 28. The senate
was not in session Saturday and the pro
ceedings of the house were of a very unin
teresting character, chiefly comprising
points of no quorum made by Bailey, of
Texas, the youngest member of the house,
and the passage of private pension bills.
Nearly two hours were occupied in the de
livery of eulogies on the late General
Spinola, a member of the last congress.
DYNAMITE TERROR AT PARIS.
The Miscreant Have An Atrocious Plan
of Self-Protection. -PAKI9,
March 28. There was a terrific
explosion of dynamite Saturday afternoon
at 90 Rue Clichy, the home of M. Boulot,
the public prosecutor. The attempt was
againBt his life, which bos been threatened
reneatedlr latelv bv anarchists. The po
lice say that at least eight pounds of
Dynamite must have been used. The
fflfect of the explosion was indescribable.
Houses ft r an eighth of a mile ou every
side of 3t were rooked as if by an earth
quake. All windows were shattered in
Ihe neigl.borhood, and the walls of the
strongest buildings in the immediate vi
cinity were cracked and bulged. Xo. 33 is
& wreck. The explosion blew the stairway
to splinteis so that the panic stricken in
mates hail to lie helped down from the
tipper floo:-s with ladders.
The Intended Victim I'nlinrt.
The fun it tire throughout the house was
thrown into heaps ami against walls so
that not a whole chair or table remains.
The windows and frames and all were
blown out completely and bricks were
driven f rr m place and dropped to the
street. The plastering was stripped, clean
rrom all the walls and ceilings. Seven
persons we re injured by the explosion;
four by b?iag thrown from chairs on
nliich they were sitting and three from
falling debris. M. Boulot. who lived on
the fift h Ho r, is said to have escaped with
Yugitiic a Campaign of Terror.
The theory that the anarchists have
been preparing the infernal machines and
dynamite bombs recently discovered for
May 1 has been abandoned. The police
are convinced that they have begun a war
nf extermination of all persons in office
who have antagonized them, so as to
frighten iii,'istrates out of convicting
their comrades apprehended in crime. A
lending anarchist interviewed by a French
reporter on the condition that ids name
Should be withheld, expresses the pro
gramme of his comrades thus: "The
snarchists, as they are showing, have in
their ham Is the means of securing im
munity froi l the conns and public
Will Blow l'p Kvery A ntueonist House.
"These m.-ans consist in holding per
fonally responsible every individual who
insists in ctnvicting them. Magistrates
ire mortal atid amenable to fear. To give
them the necssary lessons us in the case of
M. Benoit it will lie indispensable to blow
tip the house of every judge or public pros
ecutor who 1 lis assisted recently in send
ing an anarchist to prison. After we have
treated a few magistrates and prosecuting
ittorneys in this way, not a judge or law

anarchist, as he will know that such a con
viction is his jwn death warrant and per
haps the deitu warrant, of his whole
Not Iaii-i rous fur the Dynamiters.
"The metho 1 is easy and not dangerous,
as we have a lies in every neighborhood
tvho are ready to facilitate the escape of
the perpetrators of such an act of justi.-.-e.
The police have not caught any of the
men who are responsible for the two last
explosions, all hough they think they have.
We do not in eud to make the innocent
lufferwith tl e guilty, and so we warn
people not to l.ve in houses with persons
who are attire in prosecuting us.

London, March 27 Lord Salisbury, un
der date of March 30, his replied as fol
lows to Sir Julian Pauncefote in response
to Mr. Wharton's note of March 22:
'"Xotiee has been given to owners of ships
sailing for Behring Sea that both agree
nimits under discussion between Great
Britain and the United States that as to
arbitration and that as to an intermediate
arrangement may affect the liberty of
sealing in Behring S-a. They have, there

No Proh illt ion Before Uat mention.
"Inform the president that we concur in
thinking that when the treaty has been
ratified thero will arise a new state of
things. Until it is ratified our conduct is
governed by the language of your note of
June 14, 18.H). The protest against seizing
British sealers. But wheu it is ratified
both parties must admit that contingent
rights have become vested in the other,
which both desire to protect. We think
that the prohibition of sealing, if it stands
alone, will be unjust to British sealers if
the decision of the arbitrators should be
adverse to the United States.
Will Agree to a Moil us. Provided.
'"We are, however, willing, wheu the
treaty has been ratified, to agree to an ar
rangement similar to that of last year if
the United States will consent that the
arbitrators should, in the event of a de
cision adverse to the United States, assess
the damages which the prohibition of seal
ing shall have inflicted on British sealers
during the pendency of the arbitration;
and in the event of a decision adverse to
Great Britain, should assess the damages
which the limitation of slaughter shall,
during the pendency of arbitration, have
inflicted on the United States or its lessees.
AN ALTERNATIVE COURSE PROPOSED.
The lt. iKtiiiK Suggestion lirnught l'p in
'As an alternative course we are also
willing, after the ratification of the treaty,
to prohibit sealing in the disputed waters
if vessels be excepted from prohibition
which produce a certificate that they have
given security for such damages as the
arbitrators may assess in case of a decision
adverse to Great Britain, the arbitrators
to receive the necessary authority on that
behalf. In this case a restriction of
slaughter on the islands will not, iu point
of equity, be necessary.
'Her majesty's government are unable
to see any other than one of these two
methods of restricting seal-huutiug in the
disputed waters during the arbitration,
which would be equitable to both parties:"
Says the President Is Mistaken.
A later note from Lord Salisbury to Sir
Julian Pauncefote, dated March 20, says:
"With fnrther reference to your'tetegram
of the :s inst., I am not prepared to admit,
as I gather that the president thinks, that
we have objected to the arbitrators having
jurisdiction as to damages inflicted in
the past by the party against whom the
award is given. I only objected to her
majesty's government being liable for acts
they have not committed.
States His Terms of Reference.
"I am ready to consent to reference on
this point on the following terms : That
in case the arbitrators shall decide in favor
of the British government, that govern
ment may ask them further to decide
whether the United States government
have since 1SS5 taken any action in Behring
sea directly inflicting wrongful loss on
British subjects, and if so, to assess the
damages incurred thereby.
That iu case the arbitrators shall de
cide iu favor of the government of the
United States that government may ask
them to decide further whether the British
government have, since 18S5, taken any
action in Behring sea directly inflicting
wrongful loss on the United States or their
lessees, and if so to assess the damages in
I'auncefote's Note of June 14, 1K!0.
The pith of Pauncefote's note of June
14, 1890, is as follows: "Having learned
from statements in the public press and
from other sources that the revenue
cruisers Bush and Corwin are now about to
be despatched 'to the Behring Sea, I can not
consistently, with the instructions I have
received from my government, defer
any longer the communication of their
formal protest announced in my
notes of the 23d ult., and the 11th inst.,
against any such interference with Brit
ish vessels." Then follows the formal pro
test, denying the right of the United
States to seize British vessels in Behring
sea and stating that the British govern
ment will hold the United States respon
sible for the consequences.
