Special Dispatches to Thk Mor.Nrf.-o Call
London*, July 10.— In the House of Lords
this evening Lord Salisbury moved for a
second reading of the bill providing for the
cession of Helieoland to Germany. He
generally belittled the importance of the
Island to England and magnified the advan
tages to be derived from its transfer.
lieferring to the African clauses in the
Anglo-German agreement, he argued that
as long as Witu was in the hands of an
other power, English interests to the north
ward could be interfered with. Under the
convention there was not the slightest
chance for such interference until the con
fines of Europe were reached.
.• De urged that an exclusive English pro
tectorate over Zanzibar would assist iv the
suppression of the slave tiade and develop
the commerce of England and India. There
was no reason, lie said, to apprehend any
difficulty over the convention with any Eu

After debate by Lord Kosebery and the
Eail of Kimberly the bill was passed to a

them at the next session, which would open

Archbishop Ireland of St. Paul read the
first paper on the topic, "Stato and
School— ls Union Between Them Impossi
ble?" In the opening speech be declared
liis loyalty to the Constitution. He said lie
upheld the parish school, but would have
all schools State schools. The imparting
of instruction to the child primarily was
the function of the parent The State in
tervenes whenever the family could or
would net do the work needed. He unre
servedly favored State laws making in
struction compulsory. Instruction was so
much needed by each citizen for his own
sake and for that of society. That
father who neglected to provide for
his child's instruction sinned against
society, and it behooved the State
to punish him. Of course, he said, a
parent enjoyed the right to educate his
child in a manner suitable to himself, pro
vided always the education given iv this
manner sufficed for the ulterior duties of
the child toward himself and society. The
compulsory laws recently enacted in cer
tain States of the Union were objectionable
only in a few of their individual clauses.
The State school, he said, tended to the
elimination of religion from the minds
and hearts of the youth of the country.
This was his grievance against the State
schools of to-day. There could be no re
ligious teaching where the principle of non
sectarianism rules. It followed then that a
child would grow up in the belief that re
ligion was of minor importance and re
ligious indifference would he his creed. The
Mate need not teach religion, but for the
sake of its people and for its own sake it
should facilitate and permit the action of
the church; but it hindered this action. As
a solution of the difficulty he would per
meate the regular Stale school with the re
ligion of the majority of the children of the
land, be it as Protestant as Protestantism
could be, and would do as they do in En
gland—pay for secular instruction given in
denominational schools according to the
resliits; that is. each pupil hashing examin
ation before the State officials, and in full
accordance with the State programme,
would secure to his school the cost of his
tuition of the pupil in the State school, ln
conclusion, the Archbishop protested
against the charge that the sellouts of the
uation have their enemies among Catholics.
The Catholics were loyal to the country and
demanded Christian State schools.
Oscar H. Cooper, State Superintendent of
the Schools of Texas, read the next naper
on the same general subject. Cooper held
that compulsory education laws contravene
the fundamental idea which is dominating
the development of American institutions,
viz. : the minimum of lite law thoroughly
enforced with a maximum of freedom,
rather than compulsory laws. He favored

Twenty Thousand lfforkingmen to Be
Thrown Oat of Employment
Nr.w YtiTiK, July 10.— Clothing Man
ufacturers' Association of New York has
given notice to its 1000 cutters that they will
be locked out on Saturday. This step is
taken in retaliation for the boycott placed
on one of their number, Alfred Benjamin &
Co. Over 20,000 persons will be thrown out
A large meeting of striking cloak-makers
and sympathizers was held at Cooper Union
to-night. One of the speakers said the no
tice of the lockout of the clothing-cutters
was the last effort of organized capital to
break up the cutters' organization. It will
force out 1300 men immediately anil eventu
ally drive 25,000 persons into idleness. "--J.'-:'
President Gompers of tlie American
Federation of Labor said the real object of
manufacturers was to place the cutlers in a
position in which tbey can be induced to
take the places of the cloak-cutters. The re
sponsibility of those about to throw 20,000
men into the street was great. Some of the
most awful revolutions in the world have
had very bumble beginnings, and whatever
might happen the blame would lie on the
heads of this foul combination. Twenty
five thousand men were not going to beg
Resolutions were adopted protesting
against the action of the manufacturers as
a conspiracy and calling fur the abolition of
the Grand Jury.
Representatives of the Manufacturers'
Association said to-uight that it is simply
a question as to who is running their
business.' They recognize no union.
The trouble started when a boycott was
placed on the firm of Benjamin _ Co. be
cause they would not make their factory
strictly uuion. Several firms were threat
ened with similar treatment, and rather
than have the men make a systematic raid
by selecting ono manufacturer at a time,
the association concluded to take the bull
by the horns.

notice was posted up that the train was

News of tbe Corean Affair.
Special to The Morning Call*.
■Washington, July 10.— The Senate this
morning resumed consideration of the con
ference report on the Silver Bill, and was
addressed by Morgan in opposition to the
report. He expected to-day was to be a
crisis in the quest ion of the currency of the
United States— much so, iv regard to the
demonetization of silver ami the confining
of coin to single gold standard, as was the
act of 1573. He did not know but the effect
of the vote to be taken to-day (if it should
result in the adoption of the conference
bill), wou Id not be really more fatal to the
prospect of silver coinage in the future
than the act of 1873. The legislation of
1573 had been, lie said, an act of cold
blooded assassination of the silver dollar.
It had been presided over by the same Sen
ator whose "hue Italian haud" was to be
seen in this conference bill, a bill which
was a total departure from the action of
both the House and the Senate, and was
essentially as new as if it had been a novel
written by the Senator from Ohio within
the last five days. Morgan spoke of legis
lation on all important matters being now
entirely controlled by conference commit-
committees of arbitration — whose
proceedings were secret, so that if such
committee were bribed to the extent of
$100,000,000 no Senator would be permitted
to find it out
This statement was challenged, and
caused some side talk between Morgan,
Allison and Sherman.
Morgan resumed bis argument against the
conference bill. He called the attention of
the friends of free coinage, particularly of
the Senator from Colorado (Teller), to the
fact that the same "fine Italian hand"
whicli framed the act of 1873 operated In
the conference bill to destroy utterly any
hope of the demonetization of silver so
long as it remained unrepealed, lie pre
dicted that when the others of the cou
ferrets came to realize what they had done,
they would feel like kit king themselves
over a ten-acre field. The bill would mono
metalize the country, would make gold the
only tiling with which to pay debts or buy
prop erty. The crafty Senator from Ohio
could not, alter twelve mouths' considera
tion, have fixed up a bill that would more
thoroughly destroy silver forever as money.
Morgan spoke for three hours, and closed
with an appeal to the Senators not to allow
the Senator from Ohio (Sherman' to thrust
ins stiletto into the Silver Bill.
Call also argued against the conference
Plumb spoke in Its favor. The confer
ence bill, he said, would give the country
as much money during the next year as
free coinage would give. The bill is a long
step in the right direction, It was Plumb's
belief that, it the bill becomes a law, so
nicely aud easily will it work aud so help
lul will it be to the people of the United
States, that the next step will be for free
coinage. He would hope for a free coinage
bill, regretting it is no better, and glad it is
After further debate a vote was taken,
and the conference report was agreed to.

McCreary of Kentucky moved a call of

his party colleagues, however, and on a
viva-voce vole the motion appeared to be
Allen of Michigan demanded the ayes and
noes. The vote resulted: Ayes 115, noes
70. Oi.s hundred members were announced
us paired on this vote.
A quorum having appeared McCreary
moved to dispense with further proceedings
under the call, but was antagonized by his
own side of the House, nud on the demand
of Bynum of Indiana the ayes and noes
were ordered. Further proceeding under
the call were dispensed with, ayes 120, noes
69, and the journal of yesterday's proceed
ings was read.
Enloe of Tennessee asked to have the
journal corrected in that it recorded that
on ti certain vole lie was present and not
voting, He was not present at any time
during that vote.
Rogers of Arkansas made this a text for
an attack on the Speaker. A lew days ago
the House bad listened to homilies on a
free ballot and a fair count. * Why, a fair
count could not be obtained even in the
House. lie then proceeded to quote from
and comment upon Speaker Reed's article
in the Noith American Review on "Con
tested Elections." He regarded the article
us an apology for the Elections Committee.
Commenting on the fact that recently
seated members voted for the Federal Elec
tion Bill, he said that he wns reminded of
the scriptural quotation: "Well done, thou
good and faithlul servant; enter thou into
the service of the Lord," poiu ting to the
'1 lie journal was then amended as sug
gested by Enloe.
Fithiun and Williams (III ) then rose to
have the journal corrected, but Speaker
pro tern. Burrows recognized Cannon, who
moved the approval of the journal and de
manded the previous question. The previ
ous question was ordered, the vote being
104 to 58. The Speaker counted a quorum.
Fithiuu and Williams then spoke at some
length about an error in recording their
names, both slating that they were not
present during roll-call.
- Cannon replied that it made no difference.
If tho rules could ' be . evaded by a man
stepping out of the House a second - before
his name was called and step; back after
it had been called,- the rules amounted to
nothing. The gentleman had been present
to his own showing, and even if lie were
not there was a quorum without him. so he
(Cannon) did not see what harm there was
in moving the previous question. Ever
since the day before yesterday the Repub
licans have been trying to do business.
This morning the witty gentleman from
Arkansas (Rogers) wasted an hour scolding
the Republicans, but it was obvious that
the Democrats did not want to legislate.
They did not want the Diplomatic ami
Consular Rill considered, aud it was evi
dent that if legislation was to be had the
Republican representatives must be in their
places and must do the legislation. lithe
gentlemen wero absent on account of sick
ness lie hoped they would speedily recover
and come back. If they were absent by
leave of the House he was satisfied they
would return. There were important bills
to be passed. There were sitting wrongfully
in this House members not entitled to sit
here, aud the Republicans owed it to them
selves to seat the men who were entitled to
seats, in spite of all common scolds in
view. [Republican applause.]
McMillin of Tennessee contended that
a member must be present and refuse to
vote in order to give the Speaker the right
to record his name. The gentleman from
Illinois (Cannon) had said the Democrats
did not want to consider the Diplomatic
and Consular Appropriation Bill. That
bill appropriated 15 per cent more than the
current law, yet the gentlemen having it in
charge attempted to push it through after
fifteen minutes' debate. Against that the
Democrats protested and tho result was the
waste of time of which complaint was
tide. Why should the Republicans com
plain of the Democratic side when they had
the rest ousibility attending a larze majority
which they had made by questionable
methods? If they wanted to tlo business
let them bring their members back from
fishing, electioneering aua summer resorts.
Grosvenor of Ohio said that when the
Democratic party obstructed legislation he
did not complain, uor did he under at the
present exhibition of obstructive tactics
made by the Democrats of the House. The
school in which the Democratic parly was
trained was the school of obstruction, it
was totally Incompetent to be the leader of
public sentiment, to project any new ideas
of policy or to carry into actual execution
any affirmative policy it might advocate be
fore the people. While the country had '
beeu going forward with rapid strides the
Democratic party stood holding on to the
coat-tails of progress. The gentleman from
Tennessee (McMillin) said that no matter
what the country wanted it must not look
to the Democratic side fur assistance, but
must scud for the Republican members if
someihiug was needed here. Do not de
pend upon the Democratic party, for it is in
capable morally and politically, and in every
other way, in dome anything but to hold
on. The attempted fraud practiced upou the
country by the Democratic talk about farm
mortgages became a laughing matter when
one spoke earnestly upou the matter. The
Agricultural Committee had several Im
portant matters to report.
A Democrat— does it not do it?
Grosvenor— Because the Democratic party
has obstructed legislation to the extent of
more than one-quarter of the tune ol this
Contiuuinr, Grosvenor extolled the pres
ent code rules. The Democrats would never
repeal or modify this code. They would
camp to-morrow-night where the Republi
cans camped last night and say they were
always in favor of the code. [Laughter.]
Grosvenor reviewed the legislation enacted
by the Republicans in the present Congress
and then proceeded to criticize the Demo
crats for their obstructive tactics. Let them
be continued, let them keep it up, let them
abuse their constitutional privilege to oider
roll-calls; but let it be understood that the
American people knew what they were
doing aud why they were doing it. The
American people would decide between the
Republican party and the Democratic party,
and with their verdict the Republicans
would be entirely content. [Applause ou
the Republican side and cries of "Thomp
son, Thompson," from the Democrats.]
The journal was then approved.
The conference report on the Diplomatic
ani Consular A ppropi'.itiou Bill was adopt- <
ed— ayes 114. noes 00.
Funston (Kans.; submitted and the House *
passed the report on the Agricultural Ap- \
piopriation Bill. ■--:■.-■ —
lhe House then went into Committee of
the Whoie on the Land Grant Forfeiture
McAdoo (N. J.) spoke of the efforts of
Democratic Houses to forfeit unearned land
grants and of the steady opposition of the
Senate to those efforts. Now, both Houses
bciug in the control of the Republicans, a
compromise had been patched up. The
pending measure might well be entitled "A
liill to Compound a felony with the Rail
roads which have Stolen the Lands."
Pending further discussion the committee
rose and the House adjourned.
Republicans Discu*s Measures for Passing
Washington, July 10.— The Republican
Senators were in caucus three hours to
night discussing the order of business. The
outcome was a decision to conclude the con
sideration of the pending shipping bills and
then take up the Sundry Civil Ap|.,D
prlation Bill. There was a prolonged
debate respecting the places to be as
signed the Tariff Bill and the River and
Harbor Bill as well as the expediency of
considering the National Election Bill at
this session, but no decision was reached,
as it was believed that before the matters
above referred to are disposed of the Demo
cratic policy will be sufficiently revealed
to guide the Republicans in formulating
measures to meet the situation.
The speeches to-night show there was a
decided majority for the Federal Election
Bill, and it is said no one strongly objected
to it, but a fairly good number showed a
great deal of lukewarmness on tiie subject.
There was almost a unanimity of opinion
that it will be absolute'y necessary to adopt
a closure rule in order to pass the bill, and
Senators Edmunds, Teller and a few other
old Senators thought this would outweigh
the benefit to come from the bill's passage.
Senator Edmunds suggested sitting it
out, but it soon developed that, for one
reason or another, some said plainly hot
weather, they did not propose to do this.
These Senators favored " morning bnsl
ness" or adjourning. It was from the
West that the indifference to the bill came,
though at least one, and it is said two
Eastern Senators, were by no means favor
able to it. Senator Aldrich is by no moans
favorable to it. Senators Aldrich and In
galls 61 the Rules Committee were among
those who favored the rule to stop tie bate,
and Senator Teller . was even mere de
termined 'in his opposition to it thin Sen
ator Edmunds. .'.'.. /

Five of the Rioters Killed and Thirteen
Negro Miners Create a Disturbance on a
Train— One Detective Shot and
Others Roughly Handled.
Special Dispatches to The Morn* Call.
Griffin (Ga.), Julyl 10.— A fatal race
riot occurred at Starr's Mill-pond, Fayette
County, this afternoon. Four negroes were
killed and six wounded, two of whom are
reported dying. Fight whites were
shot, but it is thought only one
of them fatally, making eighteen
in all killed and wounded. The trouble
started with a row between a negro, who
was selling wine, and a white man. The
quarrel was taken up by others until many
became involved. Shouting became gen
eral. . Upon emptying their weapons a de
mand was made of a merchant for more
ammunition. lie refused to sell, but the
infuriated rioters helped themselves to all
he had. There were over 500 people on
'the ground and it is a mystery lhat
the shooting was not more fatal In
results. The trouble, it is feared, is by no
means ended, and another serious fight is
expected to-night or to-morrow.
Baltimore. July 10. A special to the
Sun from Charleston, W. Va., says there
are grave fears of a rare war in
the Pocahontas mining region. On
the evening of July 6th, a couple of
hundred colored miners were on an
excursion train on the Norfolk and
Western road, returning home, many being
uuder the influence of liquor. They set
upon a white man on the train and nearly
killed bim. Four of the railroad detectives
who wero on the train interfered, and a ter
rible fight ensued, in which the detectives
were badly done up and one negro shot and
others hurt, and one badly beaten. The
train was stopped at the station and the
citizens saved the detectives' lives. Since
then feeling has been very bitter, and trou
ble is momentarily expected.
A IT!.!*, II I : l> TOWN".
Fjrt da Franca Devastated by Fire— Homeless
New York, July 10. — Dispatches have
been received from Port of Spain, dated
Juue 271b, giving details concerning the
destruction of the town of Port de France,
iv the French island of Martinique. Im
mediately after I the catastrophe Governor
Casse of Martinique sent an appeal lor as
sistance to the Governor of Trinidad, Sir
William Robinson, assuring him that three
quarters of the town was burned and more
than 5000 persons were without homes and
food. Aid at once was sent. The fire oc
curred June 22)1. Steamers were sent from
St. Pierre to help fight the fire, but arrived
too late to be of much assistance. One
thousand seven hundred .houses were de
stroyed, valued at £2,400,000, and furniture,
• c to., valued nt £GOO,OOO, in all £3,000,000. It
Is Impossible at this moment to tell the
number of victims. Twelve bodies have
been recovered. Many are charred beyond
recognition and others are fearfully mutil
ated. Fifteen soldiers are receiving atten
lien at the hospital, many seriously and one
fatally wounded. A number of civilians
were wounded considerably. Fully three
quarters of the towns weie destroyed, as
regards area, and seven-eighths of the in
habitants are homeless. Among the public
buildings destroyed are the Poor-house,
the Cathedral, the Custom-house, the Town

not elect more than one representative, and
such delegate must be a Past Exalted Ruler.
The government of the order has bsen

following resolution was adopted by a vote
of 61 to 27: "The Senate having refused to

THE BEH KING SEA.
An Editorial From the New York Tribune on
New York, July 10. — A Tribune edi
torial on the Behring Sea to-morrow will
say: Congress has acted wisely in calling
for the correspondence on the controversy.
This is evidence, says the editorial, that
Lord Salisbury is advancing some most
absurd contentions. There is some reason
to believe that a certain quality
of. menace has been imparled to ids lat
ter notes. Someicurlous military and naval
operations have been going on lately about
our coast. Great Britain has been strength
ening her splendid defenses at Halifax, in
creasing her military and naval forces
there, adding to her licet at Bermudas and
Bahamas, and sending a .considerable
squadron to the Behring Sea. If she de
sires this display to be interpreted by the
United States as a menace she is engaged
iv a foolish . and rcgretablo business. * It
is not .-■ agreeable '- to ,* a spirited . people
to feel that tin effort | is being made to awe
them in. submission by v display of en
gines of force. We can imagine no proceed
ing on England's part mure likely lo con
vince American ; people that ». the Behring
Sea Is a closed sea : than the presence of
British gunboats in the neighborhood of
our Pribyloff Islands. We can fancy
no demonstration* more admirably cal
culated to unite this country in a
resolute determination in its extreme
demand than the sight of British cruisers
hovering around our Atlantic Coast. It is
desirable that Great Britain should appre
ciate this point. Americans cannot sup
pose this unusual congress of war-ships to
be an expression of genuine British friend
ship. But whatever it means it serves no
good purpose and the British Government
will do itself favor by ordering its cruisers
WILL, STEADY THE MARKET,
An Editorial Comment en the Operation of
the Confirmee Silver Bill.
New York, July 10.— Commenting on
the conference report of the Silver Bill the
Tribune says: The main fact which Sena
tor Sherman does not make prominent is
that no purchases are required beyond the
quantity which may be offered in each
month at market price. It is quite possible
that in any mouth or several consecutive
months the quantity offered at market
price may be less than 4,500,000 ounces.
The Treasury is nut required in that case
to purchase the full quantity either
then or in any succeeding mouth. In the
absence of any law fixing the mode of de
termining the market price the Secretary is
obviously required to consider the price in
one or more foreign markets. The opera
tion of this provision would seem likely to
cause a steadier market and a more gradual
rise than has been expected. The danger
of a decline to a silver basis would seem to
be much more remote than it has been, and
the notes to be Issued are redeemable "in
gold or silver coin," at the discretion of the
Secretary. Xo Secretary of either party
will venture to expose his party to utter de
struction by bringing about commercial
straits by forcing payments in silver coin
when that can be avoided.

LOS ANGELES TO THE SEA.
It Looks Like a Competing Line to San
St. Louis, July 10.— The California Im
provement Company was incorporated to
day under the laws of Illinois, the
papers being filed at Belleville, the
county seat of St. Clair County. Tour
correspondent learned to-day ' that
thu company includes some of the most
prominent capitalists of this section, and
further that it is the company's intention
to build a line from Los Angeles to San
Fraucisco. The company was formed for
the purpose of buying the Los Angeles,
Pasadena and Giendale Railroad. This is .
a short line, extending only eigh
teen miles from., Los Angeles, but it
lias valuable privileges Irs. respect to
right of way. A portion of it was owned
by the stockholders of the recently organ
ized company, and the new organization
holds the whole. Those who have invested
seem to be very reticent as to their inten
tions. R. C. Kerens stated that the com
pany had been organized and owned the
road, but he preferred not to disclose what
the ultimate intention of the owners might
be. C. 11. Smith was equally reserved. B.
F. Ilobart also declined to state the plans
of the owners, but intimated that the road
might go to the sea. This admission was
regarded by those who discussed the sub
ject as an announcement of the intention of
tho owners to build a line to San Francisco,
thus invading territory hitherto entirely
under the control of the Southern Pacific.
Tlie basis of this opinion was that there
are but two seaports of any importance in
California, San Diego and San Francisco.
The Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe has
long been seeking a terminus at Sun
Fraucisco via the Atlantic and Pa
cific, which at present is dependent
ou the Southern Pacific for access
to the principal port of the Pacific Slope.
This road has a branch to Los Angeles and
it is regarded as probable in railroad
circles that the "franchise controlled
by the California Improvement Com
pany may be of great value to
the Atchison people. The incorporators
are Oliver J. Hastings. Julius F. Keuch
lar and F. L. Fox, and the capital £1,500.
--000. The stockholders of record are R. C.
Kerens, George B. Leighton, 100 shares

14,260 shares, and C. F. Parker, C. H.
Smith. F. P. Heats and C. B. Loveland, 10

that nearly all of the stock is owned in St.

Chinese Criminal Data to Be Submitted to
Congress— Reports of the Police De
partment of San Francisco.
Special Dispatches to The Morn- in a Calu
Washington, July 10.— Mr. Morrow was
hard at work answering a pile of letters
that had accumulated during his short stay
at Cape May when a California Associated
Press representative called upon him to
night. In answer to a question, Mr. Mor
row faid that the Silver Bill as agreed
upon by tho Conference Committee
and adopted by the Senate to-day was
very satisfactory to him. It was a good
bill. It was identical with the compromise
measure which was at one time agreed
upon by the Republican caucus, and if mat
ters had transpired according to bis wish,
the bill would have been law by this time.
Mr. Morrow had seen the purported inter
view with the new Chinese Minister to this
country, in which the hitter is made to
say the Chinese would adopt retalia
tory measures and exclude American
citizens from the Chinese Empire.
When be first read the article be
was inclined to believe that the diplomats
would hardly make use of the declarations
attributed to him. "Still," said Mr. Mor
row, "even if the Minister had been cor
rectly reported, it has only furnished a bet
ter argument in favor of the anti-Chinese
legislation now pending in Congress."
Mr. Morrow having read In various pro-
Chinese journals that the much-abused
Celestial was a perfect model of a law
abiding citizen, and that very few of them
were law-breakers, has for the past few
weeks been engaged in collecting data
upon this matter, which he intends to
use in his speech when his Chinese bill is
up for consideration. He intends to read
the reports of the Police Department of San
Francisco during a period of ten years,
from July, 1879, to July, 1890, For various
and numerous misdemeanors and crimes,
on January Ist last there were 129 Chinese
in San Quentin Prison aud 44 at Folsom.
From data furnished Mr. Morrow, it ap
pears that the expense of enforcing the
criminal law against the Chinese is greater
than all taxes paid by the Chinese in Cali
Mr. Morrow expressed the belief that the
Tariff Bill will pass the Senate, and that
then the California delegation will be able
to secure a restoration of the provision in
relation to sweet wines. "The Republican
party," he said, "is friendly to the productive
interests of our Coast, as well as to
all sections of the country. The sugar
schedule will probably remain as it is, al
though I think the revenues required for
paying pensions and other increased ex
penses of the Government would iequire a
portion of the present sugar duties until
such time as we might secure by proper
treaties a fair return for whatever reduction
we make in our duties. In other words, I
would give some attention to Blame's policy
of extending our trade and commerce to
The California Associated Press corre
spondent thought this would be a good op
portunity of eliciting from Mr. Morrow an
answer to the question which is now being
propounded among the politicians of Cali
fornia: "Mr. Morrow, are you a candidate
for the Governorship of* California? 1 pre
sume you will not object to answer a fair

what I have written to a number of my
friends who have urged me to make the
race. lam not particularly anxious to con
tinue in public life, aud during the five
years 1 have been in Congress my business
in San Francisco has been carried on
iv a desultory way and lias hardly been
satisfactory to me. 1 feel that 1 cannot
afford to continue in Congress aud

ranted in accepting another nomination,
even though it should be tendered me. As
for the Governorship. 1 will not make any
effort to secure the nomination. Sly friends
are urging me to run, but I am uot disposed
to enter the canvass seeking the nomina
tion. Still I am not insensible to the
duty and honor, connected with the
Governorship of that great State and
if the nomination were accorded me I
would feel it my duty to accept I feel
confident that the Republican party will
elect the Stato ticket, including a majority
of the members of the Legislature, which
will return our Republican Senator. There
will therefore be an opportunity for tho
successful candidate to carry out a policy
of economy and wise administration
that would be beneficial to the best
interests of the State. , The last Legislature
was Democratic and exceedingly extrava
gant In its legislation. Governor Water
man, a Republican, did the best he could to
preveut this extiavagance. With a Repub
lican Legislature this difficulty would not
occur to such an extent. 1 think the tax
payers realize the responsibility attaching
to the coming election and will consider
well in making the State and county nomi
nations. Under such circumstances tbe
gubernatorial nomination would be a com
pliment which no oue in political life would
be at liberty to decline. There are, how
ever, other candidates for Governor who
have strong claims for consideration, and
who will be supported with the view of
giving tlie State an able and energetic ad
ministration of its affairs."
TUB ELECTION BILL.
Plans of .Republican Stnatora to Secure Its
Washington, July 10.— Unless the debate
on the report of the Conference Committee
on the Silver Bill is protracted until a late
hour, there will be a caucus of Republican
Senators to-night to arrange a programme
for the disposition of 'business during the
remainder of the session. The real point
at issue is whether or not the National
Election Bill shall be considered at this
session. It is tacitly understood, if assur
ance is given to the minority that this
measure will not be pushed, no factious op
position will be interposed to a speedy dis
position of the Tariff Bill, the River aud
Harbor Bill and the remaining Appropria
tion bills, and an adjournment at an early
day. The caucus is to undertake to decide
whether an arrangement of the kind shall
be made, or whether the bill shall be taken
up, and in the latter event to devise means
fur its disposition. There has been much
consultation among the Senators upou this
subject and the strength of the opposition
to be met, wiiich is expected to take the
form of "talking against time," has been
taken into consideration. It is realized
the successful issue of such a programme of
oppositiou would probably involve the fail
ure of the Senate *to act upon the Tariff
and River aud Harbor Bills, as well as the
National Election bill. So several proposi
tions intended to meet the emergency have
been canvassed individually among the Re
publican Senators. The latest proposition,
and the oue which may he laid before the
caucus, is to proceed under the existing
rules to transact such business as the ma
jority may see fit to undertake. According
to this plan when the measure has, in the
judgment of the majority, been debated to
a reasonable extent, the Senator in charge
of the measure is to move the adoption of
the report (involving the passage of the bill)
and without further recognition* of would-.
be-spei'i h-makers the presiding officer is to

were asked to subscribe to a hand
some testimonial to Michael Kelly
on • condition that ho would never
ride Geraldine again, that worthy and ex
cellent youug man would be enriched in
a few minutes by an euonuous
sum of money. Last - year Geral
dine ran iv twenty-one races and
won thirteen of them. Kelly rode her only
onco in public, and then she was beaten.
This year Kelly, who managed Ashe's
stable, has been more . as. lring
and ambitious. Geraldine has run in
eight races in 1890 and has won only one of
them, when she was ridden in fine style
by Taylor. Kelly has ridden her
iv four out of her seven defeats.
With all : due respect to Kelly's
many excellent qualities it may be respect
fully submitted that to a very few human
beings since the world began has it been
given to excel both as trainer and jockey
at the same time. .
