appeal to the German Bishops, urging them
to begin a crusade in defense of society
against the revolutionary spirit of social
ism. It will be followed by similar re

I'he striking carpenters are wrought up
over the sensational exposure that two
members of the Strikers' Committee have
been disclosing affairs transacted in the
sessions to the Boss Carpenters' Associa
Nine strikers were arrested yesterday for
Interfering with non-union carpenters.
Four carper ters are at the Detention Hos
pital, having gone crazy over the strike.
Preparations are being made by the trades
lor a monster demonstration to-morrow.
The situation at the stock-yards >s tun:
The laborers who do rough work around
the. houses demand tight hours and higher
wages. Being polyglot and not well organ
ized, they cannot succeed unless skilled
butchers assist them. The butchers are di
vided on the point of striking at the pres
ent time, but, as the dissenters are in the
minority, it is believed that they can bit eas
ily brought to the other side. It they go out
ttie packing-houses will shut down and
22,000 men will be out of woric.
A rough estimate shows that 130,000 men
will be in the parade to-morrow.
THE SITUATION AT PORTLAND
Portland, April 30.— situation of
the strike to all appearances is unchanged,
but it is known that a movement is on foot
among tne workmgmen to form a con
tractors' association, composed of many of
the most responsible and efficient strikers,
and that by. Friday morning the new ar
rangement will declare itself ready for ope
ration. The action of the builders in
attempting to form a combination with the
mill-men mid wholesale furnishers of shop
stuffs and paints and oils is denounced in
the most scathing terms by all union work
inguien. Judging from present Indications
tin- desired conclusion cannot be easily
reached, as it is understood that all the
manufacturers will not enter into the con
solidation scheme. It is said that a well
known capitalist who owns a large saw
mill will nut have anything to do with the
matter, but will furnish material in quanti
ties to suit all non-union contractors as
Well as to the Exchange builders. In speak
ing of the situation to-day the men assumed
an air of confident independence.

THE TARIFF BILL.
It Will Come Up for Debate
Hie Caucus Silver Measure Mot to Be
Acted Upon at Present
A Bitter Fight Expected In the Senate Over
the White Metal— Stewart and Teller
Agree Upon Free Coinage.
Special by the California Associated Press.
Washington, April 30. — Several con
ferences have been held between Messrs.
Carlisle, Keed and McKinley this week,
and a time for the debate on the Tariff Bill
agreed upon. The bill will be called up in
the House next Tuesday. Keed and Mc-
Kinley are anxious to have the bill passed
within two weeks, at most, after the debate
begins. There is a disposition among the
Democrats to prolong the debate. It is
proposed by the Republicans to limit the
general debate and let the voting on amend
ments occupy most of the time.
Tho caucus Silver Bill, which was on the
programme of the House for this week, will
not be brought up until the Tariff Bill ha s
be>-n disposed of. This postponement
is caused by the failure of the cau
cus of Reiublicau Senators to agree on
the bill adopted by the Republicans of the
House. A California Associated Press Re
porter talked with Senator Stewart to
night. He and Mr. Teller practically agree
on the silver question. The free-coinage
measure of Teller, which he lately intro
duced, is identical with a portion of Mr.
Stewart's bill introduced early in tho ses
sion. Stewart expects a bitter fight in the
Senate but is hopeful of free-coinage suc
cess in that body, and says the House will
likely pass its caucus measure.
Wncn in conference between the two
houses some agreement will be likely to be
reached favorable to silver. The Senate
will agree to a compromise of this kind, if
necessary, in order to insure 6ouie kind of
silver legislation this session.

The Investigation of the Ohio Ba! lot- Box
Washington, April 30.— The special
House Committee on the Ohio ballot-box
forgery resumed its hearing this morning.
Lewis A. Bode of Cincinnati, an employe
of the Cincinnati Screw and Tup Company,
which made the famous ballot-boxes, de
clared that Ben Butterworth's assertion
that he bad not spoken to Tom Campbell
for eight years wag untrue, for in 1887 he
saw Butterworth in Campbell's back office.
One of the ballot-bcxes was on the table
and Wood was there. They looked anxious,
as if waiting to "get down to business."
Butterworth interrupted Bode with the
remark: "You are lying from beginning to
Butterworth then testified: "There is
not a single word of truth in Bode's state
ment that 1 was there. 1 never was there;
never had a taik with Campbell or Wood,
and, in fact. Campbell and I have not been
on speaking terns, as some persons in this
room know, for five or six years. I think
that possibly once in the past five or six
years 1 have been in Campbell's office; but
that was in ttie front office, and then for a
single moment. 1 never saw a bollot-box
there and never s.iw Woud there."
Bode reiterated the truth of his statement
and said that he had no object to as

A. Willis LigMbourn lectured last nigh; at

Quite a large number of people, considering the

He began by saying thai i he ii.iiin-.il reluctance

said, " to surround the last rites of the deail with
gloomy and repulsive details, whtcli serve only
to heighten the sorrow ot the living. Besides,
there Is considerable danger to the community
In tiie present method of burial."
The presence of a buiying ground witnln the

is a menace to the health of the peopla living in
Its vicinity. Tne recent discovery of the origin

TUE >EW MAUSOLEUM.
Some other method than burial must lie
adopied. Key. Cuailes Treat in the Sanitarian
advocates the "new mausoleum" movement, as
he calls It. But embalming has too much that is
repellaut in it to be accreted generally. It is
uot pleasant to Hunk o( haviug our embalmed

body by diyiug all moisture from It.
This Is proposed to be accomplished by passing
over the body a stream of diy air, the moisture
from the body being tlieu can led into a furnace
aud all disease gei ins destroyed. But the plan
dlUers from cremation only In preserving the
seinblauce of the living body, aud a multiplica
tion of bodies would tv tune become a serious
consideration and their disposal would piove a
very difficult problem.

Cremation lias gained ground slowly against
tne conservatism regarding burial; but )[ lias

solution of me difficulty yet offered. It is a

ground rapidly In this country.
It la easily understood why cremation lias not
been universally adopted. It does violence
to ancient custom and established superstition.
If a man, however animated by pious reverence
for the dead, could peer into the crave of Ills

Gustave Berner Falls a Victim of
Gustave Berner, a native of Germany, 48
years of age and a shoe-dealer, living at
8422 Mission street, died at his home on
Monday night under circumstances indi
cating that he was the victim of violence.
The funeral had been set for yesterday

She desired that an autopsy be Held and
the funeral was postponed and the body
removed to the Murgue. The Coroner
made a post-mortem examination last night
and found that death hud resulted from
meningitis, due to a fracture of the skull.
It appears from information gleaned by
a Deputy Coroner that one night about six
w»eks age, Beruer, after closing his store,
which is in the neighborhood of his resi

influence of liquor at the time and upon
reaching the corner of Thirtieth and Mis
sion streets, concluded to take a drink in a
saloon close by.
A number of hoodlums were standing out
side the place aud Berner either stumbled
against them or they purposely jostled him.
Angry words followed and the snoe-dealer
was assaulted by the young men, one of
whom is said to have struck him on the
head with a rock. He was knocked into a
ditch nnd while prostrate was kicked about

THE SHARK'S VICTIM.
A Prisoner Fleeced by Unscrupu-

was a sadder and a wiser man yesterday at
the Old City Hall after an experience wild
Poiice Court sharks. Recently he becauia

for being drunk, and then placed an ad,

continued in the Police Court uut.il yester

to Judgo Kix.
According to his sensational story, Hulss
was approached the morning after his ar
rest by a hauger-on of tne courts named
George IL Maloney, who prutfered his
services. Aft-r tilking a good deal, Ma
loney, by plausible representations, secured.

It was then that Maloney began his work
upon the unsuspecting Hulse. He returned
and frightened htm with a quantity of un
pleasant information to the effect that tha
newspapers and Judges were waging a re
lentless war against lotteries ami men hav
ing lottery tickets. Very likely Uulse would
have to pine away for eighteen months ia
the House of Correction because of tha
ticket found in his pocket. But Muloney
said lie had a "pull" with Judge Ifix and
would procure Hulse's release on bonds for
$75. This money Hulse says he sent for
und paiu to Maloney, who secured his free
dom vii bonds of SSOO, with Maloney him
self, 551 Minna street, and James Wilsou,
10<J Fifth street, as sureties.
Outside tiie prison HuUe was approached
by Malouey, who asserted that he had a
considerable "pull" with Judge Xix, and
if more coin could De raised he thought lie
might get the case dismissed, or at least
ouly a very light sentence imposed.
Maloney was very grave and shook hit
head. " This is a bad case," he said. "Tlia
Judges are afraid and it will tafce a great

A smiling young man approached and to
him Hulse was introduced.

right kind of 'pull.' "

that he would go and talk to his friend Xix
and get him off for a nominal line. Mslouey
said he would back him up. Hulse had to
pay out another $40, making $120 in all, but
he said he would prefer to pay that than

Hulse left the gloomy precincts of ths
Police Court corridors elated over what he
fondly believed to be his providential
escape from rigid justice. But his peace of
mind was disturbed early yesterday morn
ing wh«u he got a subpena from Judga

had not been settled. He was highly in
dignant with Maloney, and demanded whf
the matter had not been fixed.
Judge Xix listened to Hulse's story, and
then issued an attachment for the arrest of

Guilty of Murder.
Curoner Eaton yesterday held an inquest
on the case of Go Luk, the Chinese con-
tractor who was shot last Monday evfuing

turned a verdict of death from a pistol-shot
wound inflicted by Ah Quay, whom they
charged with the murder.
A Word About Catarrh.
"It Is the mucous membrane, that wonderful
seml-Buld envelope surrounding the delicate tis-
sues of the air and food passages, that Catarrh
makes Its stronghold. Once established, it eats lnM
the very vitals, and renders life but along-drawn
breath of misery and disease, dulling the sense ot
hearing, trammeling the power of speech, destroy-
ing the faculty of smell, tainting the breath, ana
killing the refined pleasures of taste. Insidiously,
by creeping on from a simple cold In the head, It as-
saults the membranous lining and envelopes th*
bones, eating through the delicate coats and causing
inflammation, sloughing and death. Nothing short
of total eradication will secure health to the patient;
ami all allevlatlves are simply procrastinated suffer-
Ings, leading to a fatal termination. Sasfoid'i
Radical Cure, by JMalation and by Internal admin-
istration, has never failed; even when the disease hai
made frightful inroads on delicate constitutions,
hearing, smell and taste have been recovered, and
the disease thoroughly driven oat."
Sanford's Radical Core consists of one bottle
of the apical Cobs, one box Catarrh al Sol v us*
and one Improved Inhaler, neatly wrapped In on*
package, with full directions; price, $1.00. .■
