Frightened at the Outlook.
Only one appropriation bill, the urgent
deficiency, has become a law at this ses-
rion. bt half dozen others are now in
conference between the two houses. None
o( these is much smaller than its corre-
ipondiiiK meaeure passed by the last con
gress. This is owing to the fart that the
list enneress created liabilities that roust
be met in the appropriation bills of this
congress under any circumstances. Hence
the reductions have not averr.ged very

Oil! promises to be larger than ever the
leaders of the house are frightened at the
An Increase of 69,600,000.
According to the estimate of Holman
the pending hill is already (3,131,030 great
er thin the river and harbor bill that
passed the house two years ago. This
estimate does not include the liabilities
created by the present bill for future con
gresses to meet. These make the bill
Jl'.iTf'Vfl greater than the measure that
pa-sed the Republican house during the
Fifty-tirst congress. This in what has
alarmed Ilidnmn and the other leaders,
and their efforts are now directed toward

Blaine Men's Schemes.
Washington, May 9. Thomas C. Piatt,
of Xew York, was here last week and it it
sai 1 had conferences with anti-Harrison
men to consider a plan to put Blaine on
tht ticket. It is asserted that the plan is
to advocate no particular candidate at
this time, but to keep the field open with
as many candidates as possible until the
managers are able at Minneapolis to get
together and see just how much strength
thty have. They can then work with
mtich more intelligence and with! more
effect than at present. . Then the idea is
to stampede the convention to Blaine
wit h the assurance that he will not refuse
sut b an honur.
Both Violated the Treaty
Washington, May 9. In reply to a
question by the senate as to whether any
bics for war ships have been refused from
shipbuilding points along the great lakes
by reason of a treaty with England limit
ing the number of ships on the lakes, the
na'-y department replies that a contract
wa refused the Wheeler firm at West Bay
City, Mich., on that ground. The reply
further states that the treaty provides that
only one ship of 100 tons armed with Im
pounders was permitted for each lake by
eat h nation, but that both countries have
violated the agreement, and it is suggested
thi.t te prohibition be removed entirely.

TICKETS TO THE CONVENTION.
Chicago's Democratic Committee and
Senator ttrice Exchange Telegrams.
Chicago, May 9. Little prospect now
exists that the dispute between the local
and national committees of arrangement
for the Democratic convention about the
apportionment of tickets of admission to
the wigwam will be satisfactorily settled.
Mr. Winston, chairman of the finance
committee, on Friday sent a telegram to
Calvin S. Brice, chairman of the national
committee, in which be said: "We are
anx iously expecting answer to our request
for additional tickets. Absolutely need
the n to raise required money."
Mighty Little Comfort In the Reply.
Winston received a reply to this tele
gram promptly. Brice said: "If you can
not raise the money without additional
ticl ets please advise me immediately. I
prefer to furnisti'Th'e money myself rather
than make a change in control. If Tom-
con mi ittee cannot raise the money bo ad-
vis me, that I may make other arrange
ments." Winston was indignant when he
rea l this telegram and replied that Chi
cago was quite able to carry out its con
tract, but demanded justice. Brice's re
sponse was somewhat conciliatory in
tone, but no promise to grant Winston's
req jest was made.
Axtell and the 8U Jo Baca.
Terre Haute, May 9. Budd Doble,
who makes his headquarters herewith
bis great string of horses, was asked if
Ax tell would enter for the race at St.
Joeeph, Mo., Sept. 15. Mr. Doble replied
that he had received several messages
asking that Axtell be entered, but as
these messages stated that the track over
which the proposed race . with Delmaroh
and Allerton was to be trotted had not
as yet been built he had paid no attention
to he proposition.

at H. R. Jacob's Cleveland theatre Satur

theatre. Manager Frank addressed the
au dience from the stage, cautioning the
pe iple to be cool, and in the meantime the
ex ts were thrown open and the crowd
htrricd out. Not an accident occurred
an 1 the house was nearly cleared by the

der the direction
of Chaplain Mc
Cabe and M. S.
Hardin, D. D. Dr.
Albin, of Xew Or
leans, led in
prayer. The first
speaker was Bishop Newman, of Omaha,
who took as his subject "The Genesis ot
the American University." The bishop
is a forcible sneaker and handled the
"The American Uni-
versify and the Institutions of the
Church" was Dr. Payne's subject, and he
spoke in a feeling manner of the necessity
of church education.
Education Necessary tci Combat Infiilelity
Bishop Taylor spoke on "The University
the Defender of Our Faith," contending
that the sneers of the infidel an 1 the gibes
of the deist can only be combated by men
educated in alL the sciences. "The Uni
versity in Relation to the Mission Field
was Dr. C. C. McCabe's theme. He con
tended that education was absolntcly nec
essary to proper work iu the missions in
order to acquire the tongues of the
heathen. Dr. Frank M. Bristol took for
hi3 text "The Preacher and Higher Educa-
tion." His chief pohit was that educated
people would not tolerate au uneducated
Other Reasons for a VniverSity.
"Providential Aspects of the American
University" was discussed by J. W. Pasu
ford, D. D., of Ohio Wesleyan. He believ
ed the establishment of an American col
lege at the national capital under the con
trol of the Methodists would add much to
the dignity of the church and of its min
isters. "The American University Why
the Methodists Should Build It," was
ably handled by John F. Searls, Jr. A
college equal to Yalo and Oxford was
badly needed by the Methodists, he argued.
It would be a step in advancing the educa
tion of the ministry.
An Ovation to Chaplain McCabe.
"American Educational Debt to the
World" was spoken of by Bishop Thoburn,
of India. The bishop's practical experi
ence in the need of educated missionaries
made his views extremely valuable. "The
American University a Water Mark of
Our Twenty-first Quadrennium" was Dr.
Moore's subject. He believed that the
time had come to build a great college.and
that by so ordering this conference would
leave a mark that would redound to its
credit in ages to come. Chaplain McCabe's
solo, "The Song of a Thousand Years,"
was a distinctive feature of the meeting.
He sings as only McCabe can, and was
given an ovation. Last night a prayer
meeting was held.
A Vote on the Anti-Option Bill.
Washington, May 9. It is probable
that a test vote on the bill Introduced by
Hatch of Missouri, aimed at the suppres
sion of gambling in farm products and
known as the ami-option bill, will be bad
in the house this week, and in anticipa
tion thereof much earnest work is being
done by its supporters to secure its consid
eration. The test vote will come on a
motion to take up the anti-option bill in
place of one of the appropriation bills.
The members of the appropriation com
mittee will antagonize the other proposi
tion and an interesting parliamentary
battle is in prospect.

Buffalo, N. Y., May 9. Louis Dom-
phir, proprietor of the Buffalo theatre on
Canal street, was shot twice by his wife
and is in a critical condition. The couple

Alexandria, Mo., May 9. This place
has been flooded by the Egyptain levee
which runs along the Des Moines river.
So rapid was the descent of the water upon
the town that the inhabitants were com-

not be estimated.

Chicago, May 9. The aggregation of

taken of this year. It was happiness when
the "Colts" beat the Gothamites Friday;
but when the score board at. the park
Saturday, when the battle was oe'r, show
ed nine ciphers in the placj whera New

ecstacy. But there was a dark and in

Ohicago, May 9. What will probably
prove to be a sensational murder was com
mitted in the vicinity of the St. Paul rail
road yards at an early hour Saturday
morning. The body of the victim, a hand
some, well-dressed man of 30, was found
in an empty box-car at 1 o'clock a. m., and
when discovered was siill warm. The
skull was crushed as if by blows from a
hammer. Nothing of value was found on
the body, except a handsome tiger-eye
ring. There were no papers, and up to a
late hour the remains had not been identi
fied. It is the theory of the police that
the man was murdered and the remains
carried to the railroad yards and concealed
in the car shortly before the discovery was

London, May 9. The Standard's Sebas
topol correspondent says: The prepara
tions for war in Russia have never been
more active than now. There is a contin
uous movement of troops to the western
frontiers of the country, and the calling
out of the successive categories of reserves
in the interior has commenced. These re
serves will be forwarded to various points
of concentration, whence they can in the
easiest manner reinforce the regulars in
the Polish garrisons on the Austrian and
German frontiers. The naval transport
preparations are nearly completed.

Windy City People Who Want Hygeia

Armed Men Drive Oft a Gang of 300
Pipe-Layers "Long" Jones Commands
the Defenders and Defies the Invaders.
Waukesha, Wis., May 9. Waukesha was
patrolled by armed men last night and
every citizen was sleeping with a weapon
within arm's reach prepared to sally forth
at a moment's notice to the defence of the
city. These preparations are all due to an
attempt made Saturday night to lay a
pipe line from the Hygeia spring to the
city limits to connect with a pipe line to
Chicago. At midnight Saturday a Chi
cago, Milwaukee and St. Paul train
brought 300 laborers and a quantity of
pipe into town.
Repulsed the Invading Force.
The piping of waters from the Hygeia
springs was forbidden by the city author
ities some time ago, bnt the promoters
thought the work could be done before the
courts could interfere. Citizens had re
ceived an intimation of the proposed inva
sion by telegraph from Chicago, and when
the train pulled into the station a crowd
of 2,000 armed men was on hand to receive
the invaders. As the workmen, led by
J. E. McElroy, a Chicago real estate man,
stepped from the cars the noise of 100
shots rang out on the air, and the terrified
invaders beat a hasty retreat to the train.
The Fire Bells Ring; an Alarm.
Meantime the fire bells had been rung
and the few citizens who had retired
joined the crowd at the station. An in
junction was served on Mr. McElroy and
he repaired to a hotel to confer with his
attorney. The workmen had by this tims
regained their courage and again emerged
from the cars. Some of them had been
drinking, and in a short time half a dozen
fights with the citizens had been started.
Five of the aliens were arrested and
hustled off to jail, and last night two of
them were still in custody.
McElroy's Men Go Into Camp.
McElroy finally marched his men to a
deserted mill, where they went into camp.
At 6 o'clock yesterday morning the work
men made another demonstration, but the
fire bells were again rung, bringing every
able-bodied man in town to the scene, and
again McElroy's men were forced to re
tire. "LONG" JONES IN COMMAND.
The Noted Politician Takes Charge ol
"Long" Jones.of Chicago.ex-chairman of
the Illinois Republican central committee,
is in charge of the defending forces and
has no doubt of his ability to defeat the
schemes of the pipe line company. A
mass meeting of citizens will be held to
day and a course of action decided upon.
Meantime the citizens are relaxing none
of their vigilance and are prepared for any
Took McElroy to the Lockup.
After the second alarm "Long" Jones
mounted a barrel and addiessed the in
vaders. He told them that could not only
not lay the pipe, but they could not stey
in the town. This was received with loud
cheers by the people of Waukesha. Mc
Elroy announced that he would leave and
take the men with him. He was not per
mitted to do so-however. One of the vil
lagers swore out a warrant charging him
inciting or attempting to incite a riot.
Will Try to Get an Injunction.
- McElroy was locked up only an hour.
He furnished monty to insure his appear
ance in the court May 20. He also gave
up a revolver found on his person. He
says an injunction to restrain the
people from interfering with laying the
pipes will be asked for. He declares the
ordinance granting the Hygeia Spring com
pany the right to lay pipes way duly
passed by the board and signed by the
president and repealed only by resolution.
True Inwardness of the Row.
The company wants to lay pipe to Chi
cago and Jackson park so that water can
be taken direct from the spring to the
Garden City. But the people of Wauke
sha do not want to have their village
tapped in that way. They say if a man
can turn a faucet at a point ninety-seven
miles from Waukesha and get Hygeia
water he will not come to Waukesha after
it as often as he does now.

Paris, May 9. Sara Bernhardt is home

her well-known temper would not be re

in a series of caustic remarks, the mildest
