Exodus of Statesmen to Minneapolis
Washington, June 8. A resolution ask
ing tor information as to reciprocity with
llayti and other Latin American states
afforded Turpie an opportunity in the sen
ate yesterday to let off a broadside against
the reciprocity policy. He prefaced his
remarks with the statement that the chief
executive and hi? premier seemed to be
running a race in the last congress as to
who should first receive credit for inau
gurating the tariff reciprocity scheme, but
neither of these statesmen could lay the
slightest claim to the discovery of that
policy. Treaties were made and carried
into effect regarding the tariff long before
the beginning of the century. Turpie said
that far the most important reciprocity
treaty was made between England and
t ra ce in IMA It was like a modern tariff
law f of the United State, embracing every
conceivable article of traffic.

white woman, and after choking her into
Insensibility, outraged her. The negro

Unfiled the Mob for a Time.
At lo o'clock Wednesday night a mob
of several hundred persons surrounded the
jail, ami with sledge hammers battered
down the doors and entered. The sheriff
had, however, anticipated their action, and
had spirited the negro away tnd concealed
him. The mob then began a search for
Fisher, but up to this writing had not
discovered his hiding place.

The whole reciprocity scheme is like
shipping corn to Barcelona for the pur- j and a man's desperate
pose of building castles in Spain. In refer- Tavior one of the best k
the I nited states by the Lmted Mates
of Colombia Turpie said that Colombia's
answer to the secretary of state could lie
summed up in an aside like this: "We
are well aware, Mr. Secretary, that you
are putting up a stage performance with a
background of free trade; we decline to
take part in this performance or to act in
it either as supernumeraries or ushers."
Turpie said the president's reciprocity
proclamations were heavily loaded, but

Fletcher Foster, another well-to-do farmer.
Taylor has long suspected his wife of in
fidelity with Foster, and yesterday laid a
trap. He said he was going to town, but
instead laid in wait in the woodshed.
The Plan Was a Tragic Success.
When Foster came Taylor waited a few
minutes and then going into the house
found Foster and Mrs. Taylor in bed. He
shot Foster and then chopped his head
into bits with an ax and pursued his wife,

the thought of "real reciprocity." Its re
ciprocity did not dual with barrels or bales
but with ballots. Its purpose was to
divert the minds of the people from the
iniquities of the tariff. Turpie made a
bitter attack on the McKinley bill. But,
he said, credit should be given to some ot
the claims of its supporters. There had
been an increase of wage? and work in

yTASHINGTON, June 3. Secretary Noble

to the United States by the act of Sept.
29, 1S90, and this order is for the purpose
of carrying the act of congress into effect.
( STEWART'S TALK ON SILVER.
Ha Says All He Wants Is to Return to
the Old Standard.
Washington, June 3. Stewart finished
his speech on silver in the senate yester
terday. He said that the silver men did
not propose a new standard; they asked to
return to an ancient standard. It was
only the enactment of a law similar
to that repealed in 1ST3 that was asked for.
All they asked was to restore the silver of
their fathers. The senator from Ohio had
said that the free coinage of silver had ex
pelled gold from every country where it had
obtained. This was not true. The sena
tor from Ohio bad cited Mexico as an ex
ample. Mexico a Case In Point.
Mexico was a good example, for without
tree coinage it could not have paid its
great debt. Mr. Stewart warned the peo
ple against the monster of monometalistn.
He believed we would have free coinage of
silver; he believed we would have it in the
near future; he believed it would come
with emphasis and that very soon. In
conclusion Stewart made vigorons re
marks against the "gold trust robbers."

Lost His Fortune at Gambling.
Xew Okleans, June 3. George Sebas
tian, 35 years of age, committed suicide
here Wednesday. Sebastian came here
eighteen years ago and accumulated a
handsome fortune iu the cork trade. He
went to Kurojie two years ago, visited
Monte Carlo, stayed there sev
eral months and lost his entire
fortune at gambling. He then returned
to New Orleans to take a place as a labor
er in the establishment he had formerly
owned. This and the fact that he was in
no financial condition to marry a young
woman with whom he was in love, preyed
on his mind, aud he ended his troubles by
shooting himself in the head.

New Yor.K, June 3. The rumor that
the directors of the New York base ball
club were after Captain Anson, of the
Chicago club, to act as manager, captain
and player on the team, was denied yes
terday by J. W alter Spaulding, one of the
irectors. Two weeks ago Anson came
.at with a protest against the treatment
iie was receiving from the regular Chicago
spectators. "Win or lost," he said, "I get
nothing but jeers." This was given as the
reason for the New York directors' action
in the matter.
