Washington, July 2G. When the con
ference report on the sundry civil bill wm
read in the senate yesterday the changes
in spite of the (-xtrerae length of the re
port were -referred to entirely by num
bers, which made it to the other members
of the senate, as Piatt put it, "us intellig
ible as Sancrit, Cullom also wanted
some more definite information as to the
situation and Allison essayed to illu
minate the darkness. His explanation
was interesting. He said that the cases in
which there was an utter disagreement
were limited to the World's fair appro
priation and a small appropriation for
police to serve during the G. A. R. en
campment. Concessions Only Postponements.
The police matter amounts to this:
The house tacked on to the appropriation
m condition that no part of it shall be paid
to Pinkertou men. Ailion said that the
senate conferrees had offered to withdraw
that whole item, but the house conferrees
did not feel that they were at liberty to j
withdraw the house amendment to the !
item. Though a casual reading of the
report conveyed the imprcsMoa that the
senate had made large concessions to the
house, an analysis of the bill would show
that most of the concessions were merely
postponements. One item surrendered
was fS5O,0no for the completion of the
eleventh census. The senate conferrees
had also beeti compelled to surrender fS40,-
0U0 included in the bill after most careful
examination for expenses of the United
States court. The house had appended
to that a large amount of legislation,
much of it on topics now under discussion
before the senate judiciary committee.
'Will All Have to Ite Appropriated.
The senate had yielded the appropria
tion to get rid of this legislation, but of
course with the full knowledge that every
dollar won Id be needed before the year
ended and must be provided for by a
deficiency bill during the rhnrt session.
Another item yielded was 250,000 of the
500,000 appropriated for the Washington
city pofctofliee. The argument of the
bouse couferrees was that inasmuch as
the original law allowed the architect to
make contracts in advance of the appro
priation this sum would be sufficient to
rau u II t u zjrjLb niuirr, nt-n i-itvy nuuiu
be willing to appropriate the balance if.
A Crop ot Deficiency Dills.
As to most of the other surrenders a
careful examination of the retort would
show that the senate had been compelled
to divide its increase by two, but they had
reserved enough to ensure that the work
of the government could run along until
congress met again in Decemlier. "Iu re
spect to many of these items," said Alli
son in conclusion, "I am compelled to
admit that there will be a fine crop of
deficiency bills to be nursed next year be
tween the two wings of this Canitol."
HOLMAN DEADLOCKS THE HOUSE.
Be Sidetracks the Kanm Case What
the World's Fair People Say.
When the Rau m case came up yesterday
It was interrupted by the conference re
port on the deficiency bill, and as soon as
be could get the floor Holraan moved to
instruct the house conferrees to recede from
the action of the house last week in the mat
ter of paying the balance of any salary of
a, deceased representative for the full term
to bis legal heirs, and to insert (but in no
case to exceed $5,000) the balance due for
the session in which the member died.
XASt week's action bad been agreed to
after fonr roll-calls and its advocates pro
ceeded to filibuster to defeat Holman.
Effect of the Movement.
The effect of Holman's action was to
destroy the legislative day for the consid
eration of the Kaum matter, and "Enloe,
who is pushing the latter, which asks the
president to dismiss Kaum, didn't like
Holman's move. He introduced another
resolution asking the rules commit
tee to set apart another day for the Kaum
business. But the Holman movement
has another phase, it seems. The World's
fair people say it is part of a programme
cntreed into by the opposition to the
World's fair appropriation to consume
time and to defeat the sundry civil bill
carrying tb appropriation and continuing
Xhe appropriations of last year.
(iiek Will Meet Greek.
The scheme is said to be headed by
Holman and the Democratic members of
the committee on appropriations. The
advocates of the measure state that if
any attempt of this kind is made it will
be a case of "when Greek meets Greek
then comes the tug of wir," and they,
too, will filibuster and by breaking a
quorum will prevent an adjournment
without action on the exposition item.
Evidently the question of adjournment is
aa far off as ever, and it would but be
surprising if the session was continued for
two weeks or more.
GE'S NEW ANTI-OPTION BILL.
sa EMmlaate tho Tax and Pats Flour
on tho List.
Washington, July 2o. The anti-option
bill which George of Mississippi advocated
in tie senate yesterday, and which was
reported by himself and Pugh of Ala-
bama and Coke of Texas as a minority of
the judiciary conmittee, provides no in
ternal revenue tax or license in connection
with the dealing in "options" or "futures."
It adds wheat flour to the other articles
named in the Hatch or Washburn bill,
namely: Coiton, hops, wheat, corn and
other grains and pork and oiher hog prod
ucts, and declares that "option" dealings
in these articles are "obstructions to and
restraints on commerce," and that any
body dealing in such "futures" shall be
guilty of a misdemeanor and be liable to
a fine of (1,000 and imprisonment for a
period of from one to five years.
Great Scott t If He Had Been Well.
It further proclaims that boards of trade
or exchanges at which such "options" are
permitted, are unlawful combinations to
obstruct commerce, and subjects them to
injunctions in the L'uited States courts.
The bill also provides that any person in
the United States who shall by cable or
letter or otherwise enter into any such
contract in any foreign country shall be
equally guilty of a misdemeanor and be
liable to a fine of $1,000 and imprisonment
for one to five years, as if he had bought
or sold his option in the United States.
In beginning his speech on this bill, George
asked the indulgence of the senate as he
was not feeling well. He then spoke con
tinuously for four hours with the tempera
ture of the chamber at 90 1
Proceedlngs in Congress.
Washington", July 2ft. Allison, chair
man of the senate committee on appropri
ations, stated in the senate yesterday that
concessions made by the senate conferrees
on the sundry civil bill, amounting to
between f4,000)00 and ftf.OOO.OUO, were ap
parent rather than real. Nearly the whole
of them would come up in deficiency bills
next session. George of Mississippi talked
on the anti-option bill for the balance of
the session. Vest introduced a resolution
offering Kuropean nations a cut. of 25 per
cent on certain tariff charges if said na
tions would agree to free silver.
The house devoted two hours yesterday
to debating the report from the commit
tee to investigate the pension office,
recommending the dismissal of Commis
sioner Kaum. The discussion was cut off
abruptly by the disAnreeing conference
report on the deficiency bill. Holman
wanted to recede from the house action as
to monsv to be paid to the heirs of de
ceased members, which stirred up Hayes
jf Iowa and cithers to filibuster against
Holman's motion, and they were so suc
cessful that they forced an adjournment

SHOULD BE A CAPITAL OFFENCE.
Villainous Outrage Committed at a Pic
nic at Cincinnati.
Cincinnati, July 26. A dastardly out
rage was perpetrated at Parlor Grove Sun
day night. Josie Berger, a pretty Coving
ton girl was the victim. Together with
her escort she attended the Pandemonium
club picnic - While taking a stroll
through the woods the couple were over
taken by two young men from Covington,
who were well-known to both Miss Berger
and her escort. One of the men was
Robert Brown.deputy sheriff of Covington,
and the champion lightweight pugilist of
Kentucky. He had a revolver in his band
and pointing it at Ferguson, the young
man who accorapani ed Miss Berger, said:
"You are both nnder arrest."
Should Connect with Hemp Neckties.
"You don't mean that," said Ferguson.
"I'll show you mighty quick if I don't,"
replied Brown. His companion grappled
with Ferguson, while Brown choked Misi
Berger into insensibility and outraged
her. Ferguson broke loose and ran for
help, which soon arrived, but the villains
had escaped. Intense excitement pre
vailed and diligent search was made for
the perpetrators of the outrage, but with
out result. The whole affair occurred
within a few yards of a thousand people.
All the parties are well known and well
connected in Covington.

tailed. Bat ClTT, Mich., July 26. Yesterday
afternoon fire broke out in the lumber
manufacturing establishment of Miller &
Turner, on the west side of Water street,
at the foot of Twenty-ninth. A brisk
west wind sent the flames across Water
street to the east side, which is prinepally
built up with stores, hotels and restau
rants, most of which are of wood. With
in an hour Miller & Turner's entire plant
had been consumed. The fire had also
traversed eastward three blocks, cutting a
swath two' blocks wide. At this point
the path of the conflagration broadened
and block after block was swept over with
terrible rapidity. Flint, Saginaw and
Detroit were telegraphed to for assistance
and Saginaw and Flint responded, each
sending an engine and quantities of hose.
A Sick Woman Loses Her Life.
But the flames continued to spread in
spite of the efforts of the firemen and at
6 o'clock last night more then 800 build
ings had been destroyed, while the con
flagration was still sweeping toward the
eastern limits of the city. Most of the
buildings destroyed were the dwellings of
poor people. Many rumors are afloat as
to the number of persons who have
perished, but sb far only one fatality is
positively kuown. A woman was sick in
one of the houses and perished before help
reached her. The entire loss will reach up
wards of $1,000,030, but nothing as to the
insurance can le learned at this writing.
The Work or the Flames.
The fire covered the territory from the
river on Thir-y-third street to McCormick,
north to Thirty-first, east to Marsac. north
to Thirtieth, east to Broadway, north to
Fremont, east to Stanton, north a block
and a half and west to the river, thirty
blocks in nil. A strong wind from the
southwest prevailed. In fifteen minutes
the entire row of frame buildings on Har
rison street from Thirty-third to Thirtieth,
four blocks, were ablaze. Fire companies
no sooner laid hose on Harrison street be
fore they were obliged to run for their
lives, leaving the hose exposed to the heat
Had to Flee for Safety.
Long charred and burning ooards were
lifted up bodily by the wind, carried to a
height of 200 feet, whirled around like
feathers and lodged where another fire
sprang up immediately. From Harrison
t-treet the fire worked back to Polk, then
to Taylor, then to Webster, to McCor
mack and Marsac streets, sweeping every
thing before it. The latter streets were
occupied by residents, some of them the
poorer classes, and they were obliged to
nee to places of safety.
Saving Their Household Good.
The sun looked like a huge ball of Are
through the black clouds of smoke .aud
was often hidden entirely from Mew.
Telephone wires were burned down and
communication with the lower part of the
city was cut off. Messengers were sent
out and every available dray, van, or
other vehicle was forced into service, car
rying household goods to vacant premises
out of range of the devouring element.
The wind increased and howled as the
flames leaped from one buildii-g to an
other. "W here will it end?" asked all,
aud no one venture I an answer. The
course was right to sweep the whole city.
Women ran shrieking through smoke aud
fire and half-suffocated children clung to
their mothers' skirts.
HELP FROM SAGINAW AND FLINT.
But It Was Useless to Stay the Kaglng
The greatest of confusion prevailed.
Sick and feeble women in some of the
bouses wsre carried out, some of them by
friends, others by strangers and not a few
fell in the street overcome by the heat. At
4 o'clock the wind and fire were at their
highest, and at just that time the Sagi
naw and Flint fire companies arrived.
They were placed in position for battle,
but it was impossible for them to check
the ravages of the devouring elements.
The beat was so intense that the fire
backed ap against the wind on Thirty
third street and set fire to buildings on
that street. . The fire departments seemed
entirely helpless, and the only hope was
that with the going down of the sun the
wind would cease. It was 6 p. m. before
the fire was under control.
Sawmill and Lumber Burned.
Miles & Turner lose tueir sawmill and
all the lumbar on the docks. The mill
had a band saw, two edgers and a stave
mill; one gang, one trimmer, one circular.
It was worth (30,000 and was insured. The
lumber was worth as much more and was
insured. The lumber was insured at the
end of each week, as fast as manufactured.
The lumber belonged to Joseph Turner
and S. O. Fischer and was being sawed
