AITO SATS THEEE IS A CONSPIRACY.
Two Ramon of Agreements, One of
Which the Hlwouri Statesman Denies
Another Scheme to Dispose of the Sen
Mo Amendments to the Sundry Civil
Bill A Rejected Appointee Says lnklncl
Things of Senator Gorman Trouble for
the Hawaii Treaty in the House
Capital City Items.
Washington, Feb. Co. A pronounced
nti-silver representative is authority for
the statement that an agreement has bce.i
reached between Holman and Hatch
whereby the anti-option bill will be taken
tip and the Sherman amendment to the
sundry civil bill disposed of by means of
cloture. Hatch will aid Holman in cloture
on the Sherman amendment, and Holman
will urge his friends to aid Hatch in taking
up the anti-option bill. Hatch was asked
relative to to this rumor. He emphatically
denied it, saving: "There is not a word of
truth in it, nor any foundation for it. I
firmly believe that there is a distinct agree
ment and conspiracy between the opponents
of the anti-option bill, the friends of the
repeal of the act known as the Sherman
act, and the friends of the senate rider to a
bonse appropriation bill which' provides a
new lease of life to national banks, to defeat
consideration of the acti-optioa bill, in or
der that the other measures may be
adopted. Wall street glorified, and the peo
ple of the country turned down."
Remarks vf Hatch in the House.
In the bouse yesterday Hatch was chair
man of the committee of the whole, which
was considering the Indian' bill. About 5
p. m. he left the chair and addressed his
successor therein, saying' that for three
legislative days the Indian bill had been
under consideration. There was not, he
continued, nn int plliconr tnumtwp nf th.

Queen LI iluokalani's Case.
The corresponc ent of the New York
World alleges that he has got hold of the
exact terms of the precis filed with the
state department by Paul Xeuman, Queen
Liliuokalani's em oy. The pith of it, as al
leged, is that the natives want more to say
in their own government, and that no one
but those born cn the islands shall vote,
except such ofUers as have that right by
the constitution of 1SS7; that the only rea
son the natives su jrnitte.l to the anuexers
was that they believed the United Slates
government to be behind the movement;
that the annexers had the assurance of Ste
vens in advance that he would espouse
Why a Protectorate Was Declared.
Xeuman also sa;-s that the state of things
on the islands is only possible because of
the armed force of United States marines
triire and the guns of the American war
ships, and that without the same the
"usurpation" would not have lasted an
hour; that the annexers armed a large
body of the lawless, criminal, and foreign
element to help thjm carry their point, and
later found that fi rce showing a mutinous
spirit, and for ht.t reason were forced to
disband it and cK upon the American
minister to declare a protectorate. The

In the Set ate and Bouse.
Washington, K'b. 5. The senate put
In yesterday on tl.e legislative appropria
tion bill. The house clause abolishing the
Utah commission ivas stricken out and a
provision inserted appropriating f44,LT5 for
clerks to senate rs. The amount jor
the civil service commission was increased.
An amendment requiring cause to be
shown before the eteran soldier members
of the Capitol polu e could be removed was
withdrawn, Cockrell and Wolcott oppos

of silver, and the friends of the senate
rider to an appropriation bill were in an
absolute agreement and conspiracy, and
no gentleman from this time until 12
o'clock to-day (Saturday) week could
shield himself under anysOrt of -subterfuge
unless he was willing to go on record not
only as opposed to the anti-options bill,
but as the. opponent of silver and the
friend of the 3 per cent, amendment.
Another Alleged Agreement.
In conclusion he said he would fight this
alleged conspiracy to the last hour of the
session. Further inquiry into the alleged
agreement noted in the first paragraph of
the above resulted in the disclosure of an
other agreement that makes it probable
that there will be no fight in the house
over the Sherman bond amendment, when
the sundry civil bill comes up for action
on the amendments made by the senate,
and that the bill will be quickly sent to
conference without a preliminary fight.
Holman. who will be the leading member
of the house conference committee, and
Bland, the leader of the free coinage Dem
ocrats, have reached an agreement that the
bill shall be sent to conference without
the house first considering in committee of
the whole and acting on the senate amend
ments. It Is understood that the house
Conferrees will stand firm against the
Sherman bond amendment, and that when
the conference report comes back there
shall then be a vote on this amendment by
the house. The silver men say that they
can make theiu fight then if the senate
should refuse to 'yield, and that by a vote
in advance of the conference it might hap
pen that the bill would go into conference,

WHY FINDLAY WAS REJECTED.
He and Gorman are Uld-Time and Very
WASHIVfiTnv Veh. 2fi.-PT-RiniwwTifx.
tive John V. L. Findlay, of Maryland, has j
recently been rejected1 'by the senate as the
president's appoint fOT an office and it is
said that his rejection was, ijecurpd by Sen
ator Gorman on personal grounds. It
seems that during the campaign of 1885 in
Maryland Findlay was a bitter opponent
of Gorman and went so far as to say "the
only good Gorman is a dead Gorman."
Findlay was charged with iAiting to as
signation for saying this, tut he kept up
his attacks on Gorman denouncing him as
a political trickster and in various other
Declined to Support Reconstruction.
Findlay says that during Johnson's ad
ministration he declined to support recon
struction, and for that reason was rejected
when nominated for internal revenue col
lector. Johnson then nominated Gorman,
who was confirmed. He adds: "At the
time the reason given for the confirmation
was that he was a Republican. I do not
know whether he was or not. It is a
mighty difficult matter to find out what
Gorman's politics are. Gorman secured
the rejection by making, a coalition with
the anti-Harrison Republicans, principally
feiugrew. uameron, tewart, vi oleott,
and a lew ot tiers."
OPPOSING THE HAWAl'j TREATY.

WASHINGTON, leb, 25. A very strong
feeling of hostility to the Hawaiian treaty
is entertained by some of the leading mem

in every way possible t that the closing
hours of this congress will be made inter

Chicago, Feb. 25. Strikers on the Chi
cago and Western Indiana railroad at
tempted last night to wreck the Chicago
and Erie express train at Sixteenth street.
Thirty lives were thus placed in jeopardy.
Fortunately the train was moving slowly,
and only the front trucks of the engine left
the track. Some of the passengers were
thrown from their seats, and all were more
or less frightened. Word had been passed
through the train that a strike w as on in
the yards, and many of the passengers left
the cars and came into the city on cable
trains. About thirty passengers remained
on the train, many of them being women
and children. The train was pushing along
through the yards at a slow rate of speed,
and had reached the Air Line crossing at
Sixteenth and Clark streets, when a man
threw a switch open in front of the engine.
The Engineer Acted Promptly.
The engineer was looking out of the cab
window in expectation of an attempt to
wreck the train and he saw the movement.
He iramedinteiy applied the air brakes
and stopped the train, but not before the
locomotive had been thrown from the rails.
If the train had been proceeding at its or-"
dinary rate of speed gieat damage would
have resulted, and some of the passengers
would undoubtedly have been injured.
Women with children In their arms were
standing in the aisle when the train sud
denly came to a standstill. The were
thrown across seats, but so far as learned
no one was injured.
Tried It On a Wabash Train.
Another attempt was made at 10 o'clock
at the same crossing to throw a Wabash
train from the tracks. A crew was mak
ing up the train that leaves Chicago at
10:30 o'clock, when a man, supposed to be a
striker, threw a switch, derailing two
passenger conches. There was no one in
the cars. After an hour's work the coaches
were placed back on the tracks. Somo
of the strikers have begun to assault the
men who took their places. Several of the
new crossing nun were struck last night
with bricks, chunks of coal and coupling
One Mau Seriously Hurt.
J. W. Oshorn, an old man who went to
work last evening at the Sixteenth cross
ing, was seriously wounded by being struck
with various kinds of missiles. A brick
was hurled at him from an outgoing pas
senger train, and it struck him in the head,
knocking him down. The old man pluck
ily stuck to his post, however, and refused
to I intimidated. Half an hour after the
first, assault he was again knocked down
by a coupling pin thrown by a man on a'

him away. j
Force of Police Doubled. j
The force of police on duty in the yards
was doubled last night after the second at
tempt was made to throw a train from 1
tracks. David Adams and Henry Benton, j
two switch tenders, were injured last
night by falling over wiren that had been !
stretched across the tracks. Adams was I
thrown violently to the ground by-his foot
catching on the wire. He received severe
A Switchmen's Official's Opinion.
J. h. ilson, grand master of the
Switchmen's -Mutual Aid association,!
when j asked if the switchmen would take
up the cause of the striking switchtenders
said: "I think not. We have had
enough of sympathetic strikes and I don't
think we want any more experience in ;
that line. The switchtenders' is a sepa
rate organization and each organization '
must fight its own battles." I
Strikers Put in a Denial. ' I
