NEARING THE END.
First Votes on Silver in
REPEAL SURE TO TRIUMPH.
That Much the Tests Have
TELLER AFFECTED TO TEARS.
There Will Be Nothing Done for
Silver Until the American
People Have Spoken.
Washington. Oct. 27.— 1n the Senate to
day Cullom offered a joint resolution trans
ferring the naval exhibit of the Govern
ment at the World's Fair, known as the
model of the battle-ship Illinois, to the
State of Illinois, as an armoiy for the
naval militia of the State, on the termina
tion of the Fair.

Dakota to support schools of mining, al
lowing each 25 per cent of the proceeds of
the sales of mineral lauds within the State,
but not to exceed (12,000 per year, was on
motion of Dubois of Idaho, considered.
After speeches in advocacy of the meas
ure by Teller, Dubois, Petticrew and
others, on motion of Washburn Minnesota
was included aud the bill thus amended
Consideration of the repeal bill was re
sumed, and Stewart took up his argument
against it. At 1:30 p. M. lie yielded to his
colleague, Jones. After Jones bad been
speaking a short time, amid frequent in
terruptions, the Vice-President stated the
question to be on the amendment of the
Senator from Kansas. Peffer said he was
not ready for a vote on the amendment,
and, referring to the report that he had
surrendered, said: "We haven't surren
dered, nor do we intend to. We do not
Intend to interpose a factious opposition,
but at every stage we shall interpose a
determined resistance and opposition."
The question was then put on the amend
ment and rejected; ayes 28, noes 39. The
detailed vote was as follows: Ayes — Pate,
Berry, Blackburn. Butler, Call, Coke,
Daniel, Dubois, George, Harris. Irby,

first named being affirmative: Cockrell
and Allison, Cameron and Brice. White of
California and Chandler, Colquitt and Wil
son, Pettigrew and Gordon, Hansbrough
and Mills, Morgan and Hawley, Hunton
and Piatt, Mitchell of Oregon and bquire.
The amendment thus voted down revived
with some slight exceptions the coinage
act of 15*37 and provided for the free coin
age of silver.
"Voorhees then moved that the substi
tute reported by the Finance Committee
for the House bill be adopted. On his
motion the ayes and noes were taken, and
by a vote of ayes 58, noes 9, the substitute
reported by the Finance Committee was
agreed to. Those who voted against the
substitute were: Allen, Bate. Call, Coke,
Irby, Kyle, Peffer, Roach and Vance.
Perkins (R.) of California then offered
an amendment providing for the coinage
of American silver at the existing ratio
with a seigniorage charge of 20 per cent,
no gold issue of less than SIO to be coined,
and no legal tender, national currency or
treasury notes of less denomination than $.">
to be Issued. The holder of any standard
silver dollars may deposit the same at the
treasury or at any sub-treasury of the
United States and receive therefor notes
of the denomination of less than SIO,
wiiich notes shall bave the same legal
tender quality as the coin for which they
are exchanged. There is to be appointed
a committee of five monetary experts, the
members of which shall not be otherwise
connected with the Government, whose
duty it shall be to keep the treasury and
executive advised on all necessary matters
relating to currency.
Stewart (R.) of Xevada called attention
to the change over on the part of Voor
hees, Gordon, Ransome, Uill, Mills.Turpie
and Squire on the silver question. These
gentlemen last spring had voted for free
coinage, and new, on Peffer's amendment,
voted against it.
Teller said lie would vote for the Per
kins' amendment, as it was better than the
proposed act. Teller went on to speak
witn great bitterness of the desertion of
the cause of silver by Republican Senators.
"To me this is the most terrible moment
of my legislative life," said Teller, with
much feeling, "To me it brings more fear
than any other moment since I entered
public life. I fear we are entering upon a
financial system from which there is ab
solutely no escape. I kuow there will be
no favorable legislation for silver until
the American people are beard from at the
Dallot-box, and heard from in a way that
will compel attention to their demands."
Here Teller's voice, choked and tears
came to his eyes. He spoke most im
pressively and was accorded the undivided
attention of every Senator and of the large
audience in the galleries. "I cannot con
template this condition of things," he
went on, "without absolute terror. It
strikes to my very soul, and I want to enter
this as a warning to the American peode
that if they do ijot resist they will enter
upon a system of Industrial slaveiy that
will be the worst known to the human
Voorhees desired to secure a vote on the
Perkins amendment, but as Wolcott ex
pressed a wish to submit some remarks,
he moved that the Senate^, take a recess
until 11 o'clock to-morrow morning. The
motion was agreed to.
The beginning of voting upon the
amendments to the repeal bill does not
necessarily bring the end any' nearer, be
cause voting was begun upon the under
standing that speech-making should be
allowed to continue within due limits.
Cabinet Officers Wish to Become
PARIS, Oct. '27.— The Temps, comment
lug upon Presideut Cleveland's attitude
upon tbe silver question, says that by re
sisting to the uttermost Cleveland will
render great service to the business world,
and at the same time will help modify the
constitutional equilibrium of tbe United
States by transforming the members of
his Cabinet into quasi-Parliamentary lead
ers. This is the most serious innovation
involved in the financial crisis.

Chicago. Oct. 27.— The weather was
again clear and delightful. This was the
day for a show of draft horses of all kinds

Speeches were made in Festival Hall, after
which the members of these trades were

Knows What For.
London, Oct. 27.— William Wendell,
alias Ewald Heutterman, was arrested at
Southampton yesterday and arraigned iv
the police court here '-bin morning. An
envelope on his person gave his address as

NANSEN HAS FAILED
The Strange Story Coming Out of
the Darkness of the Far North
London, Oct. 27.— The Pall Mall Gazette
publishes a scare story to the effect that a
Norwegian return ing from Northern Rus
sia brines news to the effect that the Fram,
the Arctic explorer Hansen's ship, was
sighted outside Kara River, working
heavily and awkwardly in the ice. It wai
the opinion tbat tbe Fram could not with
stand the buffetings and pinching of the
ice; that Hansen's temperament had
greatly changed: that he had become vacil
lating, restless and melancholy. Fears are
expressed that he is lost; that had be re
turned news from him would have been
received ere now.
Then Canada Does" Not Want to Be
Burdened With Paupers.
Toronto, Oct. 27.— The Telegram to-day
says: It is not consistent with the dignity
of Canada to permit United States officials
to inspect immigrants at Canadian ports.
There is a sentimental objection to the idea
of United States* officials exercising the
authority of their Government on Canadi
an soil. Worse than that is the certainty
that those whom the alien officers reject as
being too poor to enter the republic via
Canada will become a burden upon the
country that foolishly obliges railways by
allowing itself to be used as the back door
to the United States.
HISSES AND GROANS.

of £2000. A stormy time followed the
reading of the report, and the board of di
rectors were freely criticized. The late
auditor of the company said it was drift
ing into bankruptcy, and a motion fora
vote of thanks was greeted with groans
and hisses. The meeting finally broke up
with a scene of considerable confusion.

EVANS WAS DOPED
A Constable Who Gave
DECOY SLIPS AND LETTERS.
The Tricks Employed by Two Coun
try Sheriffs in Order to Extort
Jackson, Oct. 27.— The extraordinary
Evans trial revealed more of a sensational
character to-day. The cross-examination
of the defendant was not lengthy and de
veloped little of importance.
Mr. Masterson, Constable of San An
dreas, was next called by the defense. He
had taken a conspicuous part in the efforts
made to get the alleged confession from
Evans while in San Andreas. He admit
ted that two slips were printed specially
for the purpose of influencing Evans. He
got them from the Sheriff's office. Sheriff
Thorn and Deputy Graves were there when
he took them. He told them what he was
going to do with them. He read their con
tents first. They stated substantially that
"Mrs. Lou Rooks, in the Jackson jail, had
made a full confession of tbe Tovey mur
der, implicating one William Evans, a hard
character, well known in Amador and
Calaveras counties." They were banded
in to Evans July 28. before be made a con
fession. On July 26 he gave Evans a small
quantity of whisky, also some opium, two
small cooked pills and a little powdered
opium. Sheriff Thorn knew all that was
• Witness also stated that the defendant
had giveu him a letter and asked him to
give it to Frank Rooks. Witness knew the
contents of that letter, but could not state
them now. He did know what became
of the letter. He did not take it to Rooks,
but afterward gave Evans a letter pur
porting to be au answer, signed "Frank
Rooks." This answer snid: "No use an
swering further questions; all up between
us." He never took Evans' letter to
Rooks, nor received a letter from Rooks to
In rebuttal one Rothenberger, a black
smith of Wallace, was called to show that
Walter Lucas was at the shop with some
tups in a sack on the 2Gth of June, not the
15th. He said Mrs. Rooks and Lucas were
there on the 15th, but tbat was not the
time he brought the pups.
The final witness was Sheriff Gregory
for the defense. He demoralized the Dis
trict Attorney by saying that every state
ment made by Rothenberg on the stand
was entirely coutradictoiy to what he had
told him In the presence of Ben Thorn
when he was'investigating the matter.
He told him that Lucas wns at the shop
with the pups on the 15th. This was a
vital point, as it was shewn that Evans
put the pups in a sack ana gave them to
Lucas late -in the afternoon. The argu
ments are in progress, and the jury will
get the case to-morrow.

AN OBJECT LESSON
State Fruit- Growers at
MIDWINTER FAIR EXHIBIT.
Sufficient Stock Will Be Subscribed
for an Enlargement of
Sax Jose, Oat 27.— A meeting of tbe
State Horticultural Society was held in
this city this morning at the headquarters
of the Santa Clara Fruit Exchange, a con
siderable distance from the center of the
ciiy, south of the narrow-gauge depot.
There were no conveniences at the build
ing for holding a meeting of such propor
tions, but the visitors were called to as
semble there in order that they might be
treated to an object lesson in tbe processes
and workings of the local exchange.' The
Inspection made by the visitors of the
building and machinery and facilities for
receiving, storing, grading, packing and
snipping the dried fruit was thorough, and
a lively interest was expressed by all in the
As the meeting was called to be held in
San Jose for the purpose of discussing the
question of the maiketing of the fruit
the inspection of the exchange buildings
and plant was deemed the most practical
and profitable feature of the session.
PresideutLelong and other prominent mem
bers of the State society have heretofore
expressed the opinion tbat the Sauta Clara
County Fruit Exchange was an almost per
fect model for adoption by similar organi
zations of every county in the State. The
visitors to-day were also much interested
in tbe lively scene of the handling of dried
fruit from the loug line of wagons. Hun
dreds of tons are now coming to the build
ing almost daily. The extent of the plaut
and the size of the main brick structure
was also remarked, aud Manager Horsey
explained to the visitors thatnotwithstand
ing the recent extensive additions the ex
change finds itself so cramped for room in
which to transact the business that it has
been advised that there be sufficient
economy on the part of the stockholders
from now till the first Saturday iv May
next so tbat on that day (the anuual meet
ing) sufficient subscriptions of stocK will
be made for an additional buildiug 200
feet long and of the other dimensions of
the present structure.
Questions by the visitors as to the re
eeut sales of fruit by the exchange brought
out the fact that for three weeks the
movement had been small, owing to the
fact that all had been sold that could be
easily shipped In October, and the assur
ances of growers for contributing their
fruit have not been sufficiently positive to
warrant sales. However, some have been
made, a few of which are to be shipped in
November. Recently the management of
the exchange secured many new sub
scribers, not only from the county, but
also from remote portions of the State,
the object being to obtain the publications.
When the meeting was called to order in
G. A. R. Hall in the afternoon every seat
was occupied. E. W. Maslin, secretary of
the State Board of Trade, E. F. Adams of
Santa Cruz and and W. H. Aiken of Colusa
were appointed a committee on programme.
The secretary, E. T. Wickson, » then j read
his annual report, saying: "This meeting
concludes the fourteenth year of the so
ci ty'** existence. The past year his been
one of the most prosperous the society has
ever known. The total membership of the
society has increased somewhat, but the
payment of dues has beeu less prompt than
usual, probably owing to the stringency of
the times. Through the earnest and de
voted work of its members the State Board
of Horticulture was created and piovlded
with funds. Another honorable offspring
of this society is the California Fruit
President Lelong then read his report.
Mr. Rowley of San Francisco spoke in
favor of the nortbern and central counties
uniting and erecting a buildingat the Mid
winter Fair to offset the similar action of
the southern counties.
A resolution presented by A. F. Stanton
was then read. The resolution provides
for the appointment of a committee to ef
fect the forming of a State organization
similar in character to the County Fruit
Exchange. The resolution was passed,
and the president appointed the following
to act as such committee: M.F.Adams,

seem disposed to discuss probable or
possible results of bis visit to the islands,

thus giving the reporter to understand
that the gentleman had in his possession
definite instructions bearing upon that im

quently was elected to Congress and was

Sick Through Overwork.
G. B. Ferre. chief liquidating clerk in
the Custom-house, is lyinc: dangerously ill
at his residence on Haight street.
His sickness has no doubt been hastened
by increased burdens placed upon his
shoulders by the temporary transfer to
Chicago of Adjuster H. H. White, who is
assisting in untangling the complications
that have arisen at the World's Fair on
goods entered fiee for exhibition purposes,
but upon which duties are now being paid
for such articles as are intended for con
sumption in the United States.
Mr. Ferre has been connected with the
Custom-house for over twenty years.

der of John Kelly on the night of June 18
last has been placed on the calendar for
Monday next in Judge Daingerfield's
Attorney James 11. Lone. Ward's coun

would demand a jury trial of his client to
test the question of his sanity, and that
he would at once file the necessary nffi
davit in support of his demands. This de
mand was opposed by Assistant District
Attorney Hosmer on the ground that the
question wasonly introduced to gain time.
Woman's Danger. ~~ ■ ' "*"•*
No man can ever know the
devoted martyrdom of many
Unselfishly a woman works
and suffers that home and
loved ones may be happy.
When it seems as though her
back would break, when she
grows irregular, faint, irritable,
loses all interest in society,
gets the "blues," is crushed
with that indescribable feeling
of " bearing-down," she " drags
along," day after day, suffering
agonies that would appal a man.
The cause <of all her trouble
is some derangement of the
uterus or womb, perhaps the
development of a tumor, or
cancerous humor, — anyway,
give it instant attention.
