It Is Said William Walter Phelps
Will Come Back to Congress.
Carlisle's Suwessor Named Opposition
to the MeKintey Bill Increasing.
Kolb for Senator.
The fltixlely of the Hcpubllcfuis to
pass nn election law, say$ n dispatch
jrotn tliis city In to-tlny'a New York
Time, grows greater ns the conviction
strengthens that the liepubltoans cannot
get a innjotlly In the next House, tin
less tlu-y contrive machinery by which
this House may bo tho judge of tlio
election of tho next.
The moiliflcd plan, that Is to bo n
combination of the Lodge and the
Kowcll bills, will keep In mind tho rule
of tho Senate by which tho Montana
Republicans Sanders and Power
were seated. Tho Kcpubllcans of tho
Senate declared that they would stand
by tho Slato Canvassing Hoard, right or
wronp. Tho I'.lcctlon bill is to croate
canvassing boards for all tho States,
and tho Clerk of tho present Congross
In making tip tho list of members of
tbo Fifty-second Congress Is to list tho
members certified by tho Federal can
vassers. Thu functions of the Stoto officers is
to bo destroyed. That law may croato
some iecllnc at the North, bat It Is cal
culated that the North Is io nut along
without It, and tint tho Republicans
will Ik; oblo to pick up asulllclent num
ber of Congressmen In tho South by Its
help to overcome whatever dissatisfac
tion with the Administration miy be
thoiwi at tho North.
All of the Southern districts do not
contain a larger proportion of negro
than white votes, Kvun If the Uopiib
llrans by tho aid of Imported election
dlllctrs aro able to capture all of the
districts In the South In which, accord
ing to tho theory govornlnjc tho Com
mittee on Klccllons In the McDuflla
Turpln case, they expect to seal their
ramlldaUB, tht-y may be still unable to
overcome the majority which thu Dem
ocrats rely upon getting from the un
disputed Southern district and the
Northern districts In wlilch the Demo
cratic vote cannot bo counted out.
Iltit the oxpetlment of a Southern bill
is to bo tried, and without much rogard
to cost. It Is estimated that tho Lodge
bill, if carried out as he contemplate,
would cot from ton to sixteen millions
of dollars. Tho deuieoof anxiety felt
about an election bill of some kind Is
manifested by the statement that Mr.
Lodge and Senator IIo. who cannot
agree on any other subject, arc under
stood to have joined hands for the pur
pose of pasting an election bill. Speaker
Heed Is represented as being one of the
moat anxious of all the Republicans to
have a "force" bill of some sort nut on
the b wks. lie Is very hopeful of hold
ing the Speakership for another term,
and, having no concern about the
chances of his own election, he Is con
triving ways and means for fettlng a
majority in the House.
Sir. Chandler, one of the ''leaders"
of the Senate, is urging the passage of
a rule to make It posalblti to put an elec
tion bill through the hitherto deliber
ate Senate under some such rule as tint
by which Mr. Iteed has been able to
control the House. Speaker lteed, Mr.
Lodge and a few more men are trying
to get the Senate up to the point where
the) will agree to the passage of the
bill. The ouly way they can do It is by
a change of the rules, and, unless the
rules of the Senate are altered In the
same way that Mr. lteed changed those
In tuu House, the rules will not ue
laodlAttl this session.
The sch i iimj made public Is to have
Vic President Mortou go out of the
illy aud for Senator IagalU to take tk
chair. A report will be brought in from,
tbo CotuHkitiee oa ltukts tixiug a Usui
at w hick uU bate shall clout aod tba vote
be lutea. The Democrats will ask to
dt tale this report, but Mr. IagalU will
pay no attentkm to tbew aswl the que
tU m uilt be put to the Situate. The Ks
pubJU'sM will auppott the report of the
committee. la the aatue way, wise the
vote is to be taken ott the passage of the
bill, the protests of the lkiuocrats will
be diaregarded asul the hill will be
passed by the Republic votes.
t A Republican member of the House,
who has been working very hard to se
cure the passage of the bill, said to day
that, if this prograMMse was adopted w
the Seuate. it was boutui to be suc

if Mr Pbeltf ijrotwae t reuida la
politics it will not do for him to remain
out of tho country too long, lest lie
gel out of touch with affairs here. No
one supposes for a moment that Mr.
Phelps lins any idea of relitrqulshlng
Hie commanding position he has sained
In politics and In his party. It he re
turns to Congress at Its next term he
would be the chief man In his party
aside from Mr. Reed. A number of

alrtcnlees. A general requisition on
whatever of ability the patty has which
Is available for service In the House
will have to bo made. Hence the vio
lent laying of hands upon Mr. Phelps.
A close friend of Mr. Phelps In this
city received a lotter from htm a Utile
time ago, In which that gentleman said
that he was satisfied with his position
and rather liked tho Way things were
done In tho Berlin Court. Ho declared
his Intention, however, of returning to
this country during his vacation
In September nnd October. He also
spoke somewhat vaguely of tho pleas
ures of politics. Whllo nil this was
beforo any idea of having him run for
Congress was bruited abroad, it ret fits

"The peoplo In Iowa, Irrespective of

of sentiment as regards tho tariff ques

"The Republicans In my district nro

they say Instead of lowor taxes tho Ro

Affidavits Predated to Show the
Accused's Mental Condition.
To Allow the Proseeutlen to Investigate
the Allegations of tho Defense.
A Big Crowd Present.
Thoro were a hundred or more people
back of tho rail, and nil the seats were
occupied In the Criminal Court room
this morning when tho United States
colled tho case of Frank K. Ward, In
dicted for the murder of Morris Adler.
Tho defendant nnd hlscounsel occupied
seals beforo the bench. Judgo Wilson,
tho leader, was most conspicuous, and
ho was seconded by Senator Joe Black
burn and nsslstcd by Messrs. Coleman
nnd Du Hnmcl.
As intimated yestonlay In Tiik
Ciutic, tlio case was opened with a
motion for continuance nnd ball, nnd
Judge Hogo and Assistant Attorney
Lipscomb paid careful attention to tho
Judgo Wilson opened with the read
ing of nflldavlts ns to Ward's condition
to undergo n trinl. Theso affidavits
were mado by Doctors James Stanton.
W. W. Godding, Hamilton Leach and
Baldwin, and they wore to tho effect
that after a careful examination ho was
in co mental or nliyslcol condition to
withstand tho ortleai of a prolonged
tilul. In contents these nllldavits were
carefully prepared.
C. B. Ctusor. J. W. Graham, Robert
Strong, J M. Jones and Arthur Payne,
guards nt the jail, made alrldavlts that
tho. defendant's action at the jail dem
onstrated that his condition wit not that
of n man who was clothed with a clear
WAtin TttOt'llI.KD WITH insomnia.
These guards all stated that Mr.
Ward did not on an average sleep more
than an hour aud a half or two hours
In twenty-four, and that since last
February he had been continually suf
fering from Insomnia. At times they
did not consider ll safe to have him
retained In his cell alone, and In conse
quence his cell door was left unlocked
and he was allowed the freedom of the
corridors and oftlce, nnd a continual
watph was kept upon him. It was
further stated that nn numerous oc
casions it was feared that he would
do himself bodily harm if not care
fully watched.
Following tbea.tidavitsof the guards
came the Nflldavlts of his counsel, on
whom depended tbe solemn responsi
bility of prelecting the defendant.
Judge Wilson, Senator Blackburn and
the others explained that Mr. Ward's
shattered intellect did not permit of his
aiding them In any way In the defense
of the Indictment against him. Out of
duty to him as his advisers they were
thoroughly well satUried that he was
menially Incapacitated to afford them
any assistance or advice In conducting
the case. To put him on the stand in
his present condition, said his attorneys
in Ibi'lr alrldavlts, would be extremely
hazardous. In support of these atn
davlls Judge Wilson argued that It
was only justice to his client In conse
quence of his mental impairment that a
continuance begrtntetl and that he lie
admitted lo bail.
District Attorney Hoee, in response
to Judge Wilson, artcued that practice

Itcrnrds to Avoid DaiiRor.
Tho acting hydrographer to the Navy
Department (Lieutenant Richardson
Clover) was yesterday Intorvlowoel by
the New York JlemUl correspondent In
rcgntd to danger from fog and Icebergs
to the ocean urcyliounds in their efforts
to beat the record In the Atlantic lanes
al this season. Ills statement was sub
stantially ns follows:
"Anticipating from the nature of the
season that there would be much ice
coming down from the Arctic this sum
nur, Ensign Hodman was sent early
this spring from this olllce lo St. Johns,
N. P., to investigate the How of lee
from the Arctic.
"The ottlce receives on an average 300
reports monthly from vessels, stesm
ami tall, which pass over what Is nt
this Hkson, along the steam lane, the
region of Icebergs. Last month 171
vessels sent In detailed reports of Ico
sighted. This data Is skilfully iillllxed
In the Hydiocmphlf OMcij by the
marine meteorologist, Sir. Evereli Hay
den. "Mention Is made of four dangerous
collisions during the month of May,
and another report has come to hand
telatlve to the terrible disaster that waa
narrowly averted by the Normannla.
"The legion where iceberg are ns

large as the great Stales of New York
and Pennsylvania, and Interspersed
throughout with enormous and
never stationary, but drifting at the
mercy of wine) ami current, ami often
euveloK'd In dense fog, which renders
them wholly invisible to the navigator.
"There are certain routes that we
recommend fur transatlantic steam navi
gation, ami these routes are south of
this dangerous reeion of fog and lee.
Many steamers follow these sfe routes,
but many others du not. preferring to
risk collision and disaster in order to
save a few hours in the race to break
tbe record. It Is not the province of
this ortlee to Interfere In tula matter,
other than by tllustraiiBg lite danger
ami advising caution, but It is extremely
desirous to arouse public latere', by
which alone effective regulations anil
control can ever be enforced. Icebergs
may be encountered throughout this
region for a mouth or two more, ami,
as tbe amount of fog Is now rapidly in
creasing and will soon reach Its maxi
mum, there can be no better lime for
"The all important fact to be con
sidered is that these enormous masses
