Washington, July 20. The World's
fair appropriation is at the mercy of a
conference. The house sent it there yes
terday. What it may hope from that
sort of body is somewhat problematical,
bat its friends are hopeful enough.
The believe that the senate can and will
insist successfully on the appropriation,
and the fact that there was only thirteen
majority against the clause would be in
the senate's favor if its conferrees should
choose to stand by the appropriation.
The houss was quick enough, however ,tc

GLIMPSES OF THE SENATE.
Morgan Tackles Finance Again The
Option Bill Comes Cp.
While the house was wrestling with the
sundry civil bill the senate was listening
to financial talk by Morgan, who, like
4,01e Virginny," "never tires", and Stew
art.' True, Stewart was speaking as a
privilege obtained by the consideration of
the anti-option bill, but be never reached
options once In his speech, devoting the
entire time to a plea for more money.
The resolution under which Morgan
renewed the financial debate divested of
the redundant verbiage of the whereases,
etc, proposes that as the United States
owes over tl,000,00U,O00 which by law it
payable in gold.it is hereby ordered that it
is all payable in silver or paper as the
government may find it convenient.
Cannot Contract to Pay In Gold.
It also-invalidates all cont racts to pay
debts in gold, because private indebted
ness in this country is rapidly being con
tracted for payment in that metal, and
this places the debtor class in dangerous
subordination to the power of the t man
with money; also for the reason that the
disparity between the amount of debu
now or prospective and the amount of gold
in sight" is so great as to cause distrust
in the soundness of our paper money. The
resolution wants all the money paper or
otherwise of the country at its present
standard made full legal tender for all
debts, public and private, without excep
tion or restriction. '
Leg-al Tender taw Essential.
In speaking to the resolution Morgan
said thedanger of the situation could not
TJe exaggerated, ine govern meui ui
only lll,000,000 in gold to pay over $2,
000,000,000 of debt which was held by the
secretary of the treasury and the practice
of that department to be payable in gold,
half of it on demand, it was & gross
fraud to say that certain money was legal
tender when it could be set aside by a con
tract. A legal tender law was just as es
sential to the welfare of a civilized people
M the writ of habeas corpus.
Sherman Replies to Morgan.
Sherman said that there was not a pro
position in the preamble of theresolution
tbat was not disputable and nearly all
were disproved by the plain language of
the law. He took up each whereas and
answered it.He said theresolution declared
that the people should have no right to
contract with each other as to the manner
of payment of their debts; that a contract
to pay a debt in gold is void, a contract to
pay in silver is void, a contract to pay in
wheat or rye, or oats is void; that they
have not sense enough to make their own
contracts as to the payment of their debts.
Allison controverted the proposition in
the preamble which said that the bonded
debt was tl.000.000.0u0, and when Morgan
asked how much it was said certainly
less than (700,000,000.
The Anti-Option Bill Taken I'p.
Morgan remarked that senators were
not asked to vote for the preamble, but
for the resolution. He had demanded the
yeas and nays, but before they could be
taken 2 p. m. arrived and the chair said
the business in order was the anti-option
measure. Wolcott moved that the
senate proceed with Morgan's resolution;
rejected 50 to 7 and the anti-option bill
was at last permitted to be read. It was
the Hatch bill with over twenty import
ant amendments prepared by Washburn,
and several other senators submitted
amendments, all of which decreases the
chance of the bill passing this session.
Stewart Scatters His Shot.
And then Stewart took the floor and
made a speech that touched nearly every
subject before cougress except the bill
under consideration. In his remarks he
included the interstate commerce bill, the
anti-trust bill, the McKiuley bill and the
feudal system of Europe as exemplified in
the tonaut farmer system all these and
other topics leading him to one conclu
sion, that the evils complained of and
which the bill sought to remedy were
really attributable to the shrinkage of
values resulting from the maintenance
of the gold standard and the demonetiza
tion of silver. Consequently he said he
had not made up his mind how he would
vote on the bill, but in the meantime
would call the attention of the senate to
his pending bill to reduce salaries, to
which he directed the remainder of his
One of Washburn's Amendments.
Stewart spoke for an hour and nobody
knew when he was done what he thought
of the bill. Washburn's amendments were
then agreed to. One of the most import
ant provides that the provisions of the bill
shall not apply to "any contract or agree
ment made with retail dealer" to furnish
and deliver to such retail dealer at a
future time or withiu a designated period
any of said articles for use in his trade or
business as such retail dealer, nor to any
contract or agreement made with any per
son to furnish and deliver to such person
at a future time, or within a designated
period, of any such articles which are pur
chased for the consumption of such per
son, his family, gnests, servants, or em
ployes, or of any domestic animal or
animals belonging to such person."
JUSTICE BRADLEY'S SUCCESSOR.
The President Kill the Vacnnry on tl;s
Supreme Court Bench.
WASHISGTOX.Juiy 20. The presideiit j e
terday sent to the senate tin- name of Judge
George Shiras, Jr., of Pennsylvania, to fill
the vacancy in the supreme court caused
by the death of Justice Bradley. Judge
Shiras is about CO years of aire, a leading
consulting attorney of Pittsburg and has
never before held public office of any kind.
He is a man of deep learning, great ex
perience and is considered eminently fitted
for the supreme bench. He is a graduate
of the famous '3 class of Yale, which
graduated more celebrated men than any
year befre or since. Judge Brewer, of
the supreme bench, and Chauncey M.
Depew were in this class. His appoint
ment was not only recommended by the
Pennsylvania delegation but by persons
of influence in all parts of the country.
Proceedings in Congress.
Washington, July 20. Little was ac
complished in the senate yesterday except
to discuss a financial proposition of Mor
gan without result, and to read the anti
option bill, and to amend it according to
Washburn's views, leaving many other
amendments pending. The only senator
who spoke on the bill was Stewart, and
his remarks were directed to almost every
other topic except those embraced in the
In the house the appropriation of $5,000,
000 to the World's fair in the sundry civil
bill was voted down. 110 to 123, and the Sun
day closing paragraph inserted by the
senate was sustained by a vote of 147 tc
61. An amendment was inserted for
bidding the letting of any contract by any
government officer to any one who em
ploys the Pinkerton detective agency or
other similar organization and prohibiting
their employment by Jie government of
the District of Columbia. The sundry
civil was then passed as amended. A reso
lution was passed for the appointment of
a special committee of five members to in
vestigate the election laws and methods
in the city and county of Xew York.

LOVED LIKE A MAN.
Developments in the Freda
Ward Murder Case.
SOME MORE REMARKABLE POINTS
Letters that Passed Between the Two
Girls Show tbat Their Love Was Hon
orable and Exactly Similar to That
Felt by a Man and Woman for Each
Other It Also Infects Two Other Girls
A Psychological Feature of the Cor
respondence that was Abandoned.
Memphis, July 20. From the tenor of
the letters that passed between Freda
Ward and Alice Mitchell one is led to the
conclusion that each was infatuated with
the other, and that Alice loved Freda as
man loves woman, and that Freda loved
FREDA WARD. ALICE MITCHELL.
Alice as woman regards man. A promi
nent physician, discussing the case from a
scientific standpoint, said the story of
these two girls gave rise to a problem for
psychologists, viz: can one woman love
another as a man, without being insane,
and when this love is reciprocated, are not
Their Love Yvas Contagions.
The case now shows that Alice first
loved Freda as a man, and tbat after the
usual amount of wooing reciprocation
followed, and that the lovers in the early
stages of their infatuation infected their
other female companions with like pas
sions; for Lillie Johnson, Alice Mitchell's
chum, and Jo Ward, Freda's sister, were
devoted to each other, and the relations
between these two were beyond the mere
girlish fancy of one girl for another.
Letters and Trinkets of Alice.
Testimony was introduced yesterday
showing that insanity was a feature of
Mrs. Mitchell's family, several of her
relativ.-s having been insane at times.
The letters iroduced showed that Alice
loved Freda as an honorable man loves a
pure girl. These letters were brought
into court by Robert Mitchell, Alice's
half-brother. With them were her trin
kets marbles, tops, base balls and other
boyish playthings. The letter case con
tained copies of letters from Alice to
Freda and Freda's original lett ers to Alice.
Novel Feature of the Correspondence.
When Alice and Freda became engaged
and were finally separated Alice told
Freda to write to her as Freda Ward,
telling her that she (Freda) was in love
with Freda Ward and not Alice Mitchell,
for Alice Mitchell's personality had been
merged into that of Freda Ward. Freda
Ward then wrote to Freda Ward and her
letters were couched in the most endear
ing terms. Alice, of course, received the
letters and became, after a time, jealous
of the mythical Freda. She thereupon
wrote to Freda and told her that Freda
Ward was dead.
MADE LOVER IN CIPHER.
Freda's Consolation for the Ieath of Iter
The letters that passed between the
young ladies were written in cipher made
up of capital and' Greek letters. In one of
the letters Freda bewails the death of the
mythical Freda, but she consoles herself
with the reflection that she loves Alice
better than this dead fiction of their
imagination. Freda tells Alice in this
letter that she worships her, while she
only loves Ashley Koselle. Later on she
says she loves only Alice.
Wild with Joy Over Elopement.
In other letters Freda discussed the pro
position to elope, and was wild with joy
when Alice told her that they would in a
short time leave for St. Louis. The
presentation of the engagement ring
brought back such a letter as would
follow a similar presentation by a boy of
19 years to a girl of 17. When Freda's sis
ter broke into the plan to elope the girl
wrote most heart-rending effusions to
Alice. She swore that she would marry
none other than Alice.
Peculiar Objection to Tobacco.
On a slip of paper was found written in
Alice's chirography various ways for pro
ducing death, among them cutting,
stabbing, poison, drowning, shooting and
smothering. Another paper bore the
legend, "twelve grains of atrophia." In
another letter from Freda she told Alice
that if she chewed tobacco she would not
kiss her, as she did not desire her husband
to use either tobacco or liquor, as its bad
effects often went to other generations.
When the letters from Freda to Alice
were being read the defendant for the first
time since her incarceration showed vis
ible signs of excitement.
