The Republican Senators from all ap

For thrco hours nnil a half they wore In
session at the Capitol last night, and
after a great deal of speech-making they
were forced to adjourn without reach
ing a conclusion. It had been given
out that the object of tho caucus was
merely to make out an order of bust
ncss for the future, but It Is known that
the real Intent and purpose of tho con
fidence was to get the requisite number
of Republicans to consent to remain In
cession until the fight on tho Force bill
Tho fact that tho caucus adjourned
without reaching any conclusion gives
rcnson.iblo assurnnco that they have not
been successful in obtaining the names
of tho required number of Senators who
will agree to do this. It will now bo

bj Pcldeu, with ltd Impudent allusions
to the Republican Senators and the
llcptbllcan editors, was not Intended
for publication. It was to bo sent out
rccrctly to tho Republican odltorson
the theory that the Republican Sena
torial caucus would not bo hold until
Saturday. Eluding yesterday that the
caucus would be held tonight, Reed
told Ikldcn to send It out through tho
Ik was advised by conservative Re
publicans to tone It down a little It It
was going out In such a public way,
but Eud, with his customary cynicism,
let It go, on tho theory that It would
liavc the effect to spur tho Republican
Senators up, whether they resented Its
terms or not. They did resent them
privately to day, but they did not daro
resent them publicly, as Reed foresaw,
nor did they daro to turu their resent
ment Into opposition to the Forco bill.
Reed Is forcing them to support that
against tholr better judgment anyway,
and If they did not feel that they were
powerless against him they would have
jcslsted before this.
Heed predicts that they will not only
take up the Force bill but will change
their rules to pass It. He is very proud
of his victory over the Senate. His
work has been so much more subtle
the ic than in the House and has been
can led on against groator disadvantages.
Tc r the time being he Is master of both
Houses and the most powerful man In

was entirely satisfied with the platform
adopted by the convention Mr. Wallace
I regard It as an excellent deliver
ance, though I had hoped that the con

can be had so loag as election omcers

Watklns says about the shooting af

"Madam, he's not here he's all right."
Kvans was seen in Jail last night. He
made the following statement "Samuel

got in convetsation wllh the woman.
When I turned my head I found all the

that ex Alderman Dempwy, who was
stippcted to be in Montreal, was one of
the most Interested spectators of the
proceedings In the court room Wednes
day by which Billy Moloney and ex

of prosecuting the returned and bailed

You can say that there will certainly be
a trial. Yes, I think that Moloney and
Do Laccy are pretty bold In coming
back." It Is mid on good authority,
however, that Colonel Fellows will, on
Monday, move for a speedy trial of
Moloney and De Laccy.

Nkw YonK, July 11. The JfemM
to-day prints the following special from
Its correspondent at Ylctotla, B. C.
Whatever may bo the Implted signifi
cance of the advent of many British
war ships In Ksqulmalt Harbor, I can
not shut my eyes to the fact that in
reality the occurrence Is one that can
very reasonably be accounted for by
other toasons than the one of attempted
Intimidation or worse.
A newndmtrnt in tho regular course
of events has been appointed to this
Northern Pacific station, nnd It has
been the custom for many years wlion
such an event has transpired for the
whole squadron to assemble at Ylotorla
to welcome him nnd the now flagship.
Admiral Honcagc has served his full
time, anti this month is the correct date
for tho arrival of his successor, Admi
ral Holhain, who, with his ship, the
Warsptltc, will be here In n few days.
But, apart from this explanation, it
cannot be denied that it may be nothing
more than n skilful stroke of general
ship that has planned the arrival of
these vessels of the squadron at this par
1 Iilled every vessel In port yosler
day. and after mlnutoly probing the of
fleers and men came to tho conclusion
that not oven one of the commanders
now here knows the least thing about
what they are to do. though when Bshr
Ing Sea Is mentioned tiiey knit their
brows and look portcntuously solemn
and grax c.

If (hero Is one man aware of the In
tentions of the British Government In
the matter It is Sir Julian Pauncefote,
nt Washington, and I have no doubt
that as soon as Admiral Hotham reaches
hero ho will know as much. Indeed,
there Is a big packet of olllclal docu
ments waiting here for him now from
WaililDgton. I ascertained this yester
day. Speaking with United States Consul
Myers a day or two ago he gave me his
opinion of British naval ollkers. Said
"I never heard of or realized before
this what an admirable specimen of
stolidity on all matters ollielal the Brit
lib naval olllcer really is. But for all
that tho discipline of a navy that
teaches Its officers and men before any
thing else to keep their mouths shut is
nothing short of admirable and one
well worthy of Imitation by other
The vessels are Justflnishlae coaling,
and, when the flagship reaches here,
they will do one of two things they
will cither start at once for the South
on a downward cruise, leaving the
Warsprtte and, perhaps, the ChampUm
In harbor, or else three of them will re
main in the harbor ami the other three
proceed slowly North, until they reach

In that event I khoiild judee that the
three vessels to go North wilt be the
Champion, Ksplegle ami Nymph the
three smallest for any one of the six
would be ample forte to protect our
seaiera, and the smallest of all of them,
the Nymph, could blow the Bear, Alert
and Hush out of the water together
One thing is certain la uo case will
the Warsprite go to sea. It would even

tight breast. Then he stabbed her In
the neck and lde
Her screams broturhtMatiel Watson, n
companion, who endeavored to drag the
infuriated man off the prostrate woman,
whose flesh he was puncturing with the
point of the knife. He then turned
savagely on the second woman and

she had fallen beside his other victim he
continued to cut their legs and arms and

shouting that ho had killed the women.
It Is believed that he has gone mad.
The women will likely die.
BROUGHT AOAINST TWO POPULAR
ARMY OFFICERS IN ARIZONA.
Tho Triio tnwnrilneM or the Wham

Their Vindication to Follow.
Army men all over the country, and
especially In this city, arc highly Indig
nant over the court-martial of Major
Joseph W. Wham, iwymaster, and
Captain A. L Mlltlmore, at Tucson,
Atlona, and do not hesitate to char
actcilre the trials as persecution, and
the charges as frivolous.
The story as told by Captain Mill!
more's friends (s as follows: Major
Wham Is quite a prominent olllcer and
a leading candidate for the Paymaster
Generalship to succeed General Itoch
cster. In order to get him out of the
way charges were preferred that he had
conspired with Captain Mlltlmore to
rent the Paymaster a oltlce at an ev
hoibltant rale and had asked him to
execute a lease purporting to lent one
room as an otllce whereas In fact said
lease was extended to cover the tent of
the enlltc house occupied as a
residence and olllce. Hie charge
of cxhorbitant rental having lieen
abandoned by the prosecution. The
evidence showed that It has been cm
ternary during the past twenty five years
for paymasters to occupy o Hires In their
houses at all frontier towns, thus secur
ing additional safely to their funds ami
Increased servke to the Government.
The evidence further showed that It
was the quatterraaeier's duty to rent
the offices and that the accused had
nothlui; whatever to do with the price
or wilh the arrangements for the
lease, having simply exercised his
choice In selecting an ottice by permis
sion of Captain Mlltlmore, who exe
cuted the lease without advice from or
consultation with the accused. More
than two mouths later the accused
rented the rest of the house at $"M per
month. The defease rested Its case
without putting a single w I lues on the
stand, and the court was rive minutes
in reaching a verdict.
THR 111 Mil. h HIUIaSRD.
Wbes the Undines reached the De
partment Commander he very properly
dismissed them. In his testimony for
the prosecution Captain Mtliitoore
stated that Major Wham simply ex
pressed bis desire to occupy the same
quarters which other paymasters had
used, and for which the Government
bad been pa ing $35 a month for l
vests. That was the rent paid. Major
Wham bad nolhiug to do with flK lag
the pi lee paid and never nt or wrote
cue word to blm on the subject. Wham
kiuip! designated the office he pre
ferred, and Milliwore then made all ar
range uresis for resting the same.
Major Wham made a statement, is
