THIS AliGUS THUKSDAX, MAY 5, 1892.
Highest of all in Leavening Power. Latest U. S. Gov't Report
AFTER THE READING.
CONGRESS WILL ATTEMPT TO
CORRECT SUCH EVILS.
Monopolies Are Pausing the Limit
of Toleration and a Great KrTprt Will
Be Made to Knact Legislation for
Washington-, May 4. Congress is
after the Heading monopoly with a
sharpened hardwood stick. It appre
ciates the difficulty to be overcome in
wresting- from so g-reat a corporation
its power; but it also appreciates its
own greater power and has faith in its
ability to bring- the Pennsylvania trust
to Us knees. The subcommittee of
the Interstate and Foreign Commerce
committee consists of able, intelligent
men, and if there is any virtue in the
anti-trust law, the people may rely
upon the subcommittee reporting in
favor of instructing the Attorney Gen
eral to apply it in the Reading case,
and of the whole committee and
later Congress adopting the
report. A - meeting will un
doubtedly be held this week, and
sessions continue daily until the re
port shall have been completed.
The opinion prevails that the pass
age of a new law will be neces
sary before the Reading monopoly
can be destroyed. This opinion
is based on the fear that the
committee will be unable to establish
the fact that a deal has been entered
into. Xo one doubts its existence, but
the difficulty is to prove it. The ad
vance in the price of coal, following so
closely upon the heels of the forma
tion of the combine, is regarded as
sufficient evidence for belief, but
not for legal proof. Mr. Stout
is, nevertheless, sanguine of bring
ing the march of the monopoly over
the heads of the people to a halt, if not
immediately, surely in the near future.
Despite the increase in the price of
coal, followed by greatly increased
profits, the hardships of the thousands
of poorly paid miners are intensified,
and if this doesn't generate a public
feeling against the monopoly nf!i-nt
to crush it Mr. S!ont and hi colleague
will be forced to be contented with
their own good intention.
BIG ANARCHIST PLOT.
Sensat lonal Discoveries Made by the Po
lice at Liege.
BK18SEI.8, May 4. The Magistrate
who is inquiring into the explosion that
wrecked the residence of Count Min
nete iit Liege, says that the bombs
were charged with twenty-five kilo
grams of forcite. Fourteen kilograms
more of the explosive have been stolen,
and f -esh outrages can be expected.
The police declare that in their raids
upon the houses of the anarchists they
have liscovered evidence of a most
formit able consph-aey, the head
quart rs of which is in I.iege.
The :onspirators, they say, are a
thoroi ghly organized body, and their
aim is to terrorize the law-abiding pop
ulation by means of explosions. Some
of th; conspirators sought employ
ment" the various manufactor
ies oi explosives, where, once at
work, they made it their business to
steal as much of the explosives as they
possib y could. The stolen material
was dtlivered to other members of the
gang, who loaded it into cartridges,
and these men in turn delivered the
cartridges to the third section, who
had been selected for the work of plac
ing th cartridges wherever it was de
cided to cause an explosion. The
police say that with the information
that has come to them they will be
able to arrest many of the men en
gaged in this plot. j
Vies sa, May 4. Bombs were thrown
at the mail train running from Pesth
to Temssvar and three first-class pas
sengers were injured.
Madi id. May 4. At a ministerial
council the cabinet decided in favor of

Denounced hj Mr. Hits.
Washington, May 4. After the
House had approved the journal. Mr.
Geary, of California, presented the con
ference report on the Chinese bill and
demanded the previous question. Mr.
Mitt, of Illinois, opposed the report.
The agreement of the conferees
was more satisfactory than the
House bill, but openly Violated faith
and was a rupture of our relations
with China. It compelled every China
man to go and get a ticket-of-leave.
Never before in the history of civilized
communities was any such system en
forced, except in the days of slavery.
This treatment was outrageous and a
blot on our name as a nation of free
people. He condemned this kind of
legislation. Our relations with China
were already sufficiently strained,
Mr. Hooker, Democrat, of Mississippi,
in opposing the report said there never
was a time when the habeas corous
was denied as in this bill. Ity it the
judge was allowed to imprison the
party and deny bail. It w as a direct
violation of the treaty of 18-fQ.
Mr. Geary of California who pre
sented the report said . there was
nothing in the act which suspended
the writ of habeas corpus, nor did it
deny the right of bail. The bill simply
said the judge should not take bail in
the first instance. The bill attempted
to stop leaks in the existing laws and
left the final settlement of the question
to future Congresses.
Mr. Hooker demanded the yeas and
nays. The conference report was then
agreed to yeas, 18"; nays, 2?.
Telltale Rent Receipts.
New York, May 4. TiiedisreputabU
houses in what is known as the ''Tender

of the most notorious in town. In one
of them the police got hold of some
rent receipts said to be signed by the
owner of the house, who was ' a men
ber of the March grand jury and one
of the most vigorous in denouncing the
police in interviews published at the
time of the famous presentment.'

WORK OF FOUR YEARS.
BishoD Poster's Kplscopal Address to
Omaha, May 4. Bishop Warren, the
rich bishop of Denver, presided at the
opening session of to-day's MeUiodist
conference. Dr. Myley of New York
conducted the devotional exercites.
Chancellor Creighton of Lincoln at
once moved that all the necessary
motions and ex-parte remarks be
eliminated from the record before it be
printed, but Dr. Neely of Philadelphia
opposed this, saying that the reiord be
a true, not a garbled one. Dr. lVndle
ton of Kansas had the motion tabled
without further discussion.
Sanford Hunt of Genesee asked unani
mous consent to have a committee oa
mtmoirs appointed. It was granted,
and Dr. Buckley of New York addressed
the convention -on the abuse of the
memoirs at the last conference. He
said that the length of some of the
papers was so appalling that
half of the conference went
out while they were being rc;:d.
He moved that all memoirs written be
restricted to fifteen minutes and all ex
temporaneous addresses be kept down
to five rui nines, in order to make me
morial service a tender one and not a
scandalous farce. This evidently
aroused the ire of several, as instantly
a dozen were on their feet. Dr. Leon
ard of Ohio became acrimonious and
moved to make the limit twenty
minutes, and failing to get a stand at
tempted to make a speech, but the pre
vious question was then demanded and
the motion was carried.
After the appointment of commit
tees the order of business was taken up
and Bishop Foster began reading the
Episcopal address. After congratula
ting the assembly upon its auspicious
meeting and passing eulogies upon the
dead officers and laymen, he stated
that the past quadannum had been a
prosperous one in the church and that
no bishops had died. The bishops
have made more that fifty tbou- and as
signments of ministers and families
with but little dissatisfaction. Work
in foreign fields has been
given'morehan ordinary care.

on its hospitals and humanitarian in
stitutions. It congratulated the church

discrimination. Churches have in

ment to meet Axtell here during the

the greatest event ever trotted, for the
value will probably exceed 510,000.

The difficulty of defining certain vr-rv
simple words is known to no one better
tnan to the makers of dictionaries. The
word "life" has bothered definers n "iv.-t
deal; and one lexicographer was unable
to do any better, in making hi.', du tirn
ary, than adopt a schoollov's dcfinii V.xi
of the word. "What is life?" asked Cue
schoolmaster. "Being alive." answere I
the boy: and the lexicoeranher t if
his dictionary as his formal definition of
the word "the state of being alive."
The most elaltorate scientific defini
tion of the word does not define it bet
ter, because men of science do not rea!ly
know what life is. In a certain test
book of science, used in a great college,
the definition of the word was the fol
lowing: "Life is that property residing in an
organism by means of "which it is en
abled to appropriate materials from
other organisms, and assimilate them to
its own structure."
There was in the class which was go
ing over this subject a youth to whom
an understanding of this formidable
definition was utterly impossible. He
was called upon, one day, by the pro
fessor, to tell what life is.
The student struggled hard to recall
the definition, which he had laboriously
committed to memory. But it had now
utterly gone from him. He was not the
youth, however, to sit down without
making any answer at all; so he boldly
"Life, professor, is all a fleeting
He said it so sincerely, and the answer
seemed to reflect so faithfully bis feel
ings at the time, that the professor
smiled and said:

definition of it as any." Youth's Com
