tee other, Ud by a Jew muted Taul,
was called the "Republican party."
Several Hunts have resulted and It haa

An indignation meeting of the resi

evening at the residence of William R.
JIatthews, on Kencesaw avenue. The
meeting was called to take actios on the
streitcar question, and at 8 o'clock a
large number of representative titMos
auembled in Mr. Matthews' parlors.
Mr. Matthew first addressed the meet
ing in plain ami forcible language, sel

At the conclusion of Mr. Matthews'
remarks Mr. John J. Judd was unani
mously elected president of the meeting,
and J. It. Ruekalew secretory. Messrs.
Thornton, Jameson, Townsend, Saxtou,
Matthews and Amies were appointed as
commute on resolutions.
Mr. Judd thought that a great part
of the trouble was caused by the Coui
misstoners, who declined to petealt the
company to lay a double track to Mount
Pleasant. The railway company had
offered to lay the track and take it up
again If it did not conform with the
grade, but the Commissioners still de

he thought, was the greatest obstacle to
perfect service If that is abolished,

Krw Yonu, July 12 Tho llerattV
Washington correspondent telegraphs:
All political Washington is laughing
nbout tho lleldon circular, which Is
oharactcrlrcd as asinine to tho utter
most degree. Democrats regard It as
tho poorest piece of political play ever
made by a tyro In politics, much less
the chairman of the Congressional
campaign committee. If Mr. ileldon
Is tesponBlblc for this act of political
inmt, then the Democrats have llttlo
to fear from his leadership In tho
coming campaign for control of the
House In tho Fifty second Congress.
Tho original Intention was to put tho
contents of tho circular before tho coun
try In the form of an Intcrvlow with
Mr. Ileldcn, In which tho chairman of
tho Itopubllcan Congressional Commit
tee, under tho direction of lioss Itecd,
would lay down tho law to tho Senate,
This was tho Idea suggested, but some
how there was a change In tho pro
gramme nnd tho circular fealuro was
substituted. Late Wednesday night
Mr. Ueldcn's secretary rushed Into tho
Associated Press olllcc here and banded
in the edict for distribution among Ho
Tho effect of this manifesto, in the
opinion of tho Democratic side of tho
Senate, Is that It will likely prove n
boomeranir. They rogard It as nn ua
watranltd picco of Impertinence for a
Congressional n.-vlce like Chairman
Ileldcn to attempt to dictate to Senators
the policy they should pursue In mat
ters of legMatlou.
TI1K U.ntCAI.S DKTr.RMISKI).
Kecrtholess the surfaco Indicatlans
at tho Capitol to day were that the ma
jotltyof the ltepubllcan Senators are
determined to consider the Klcction bill
and to force It through the Benate, with
rules or without rules. They are en
countering obstacle in the conservative
temper of some of the older Senators,
who still desire to preserve tbe delibera
tive character of tho Senate, but the
radicals are very Influential, and the
probabilities are that they will carry
They are very grateful to Congress

ho has strengthened their hands by his
aggressive circular to the ltepubllcan
editors. Of forty ltepubllcan Senators
in town not more than one lis opretl

Unfortunately the conservative ml
uoiity can assign no reason for their
conservatism except a desire to preserve
the traditions of the Senate and the
spirit of fair play so dear to the Ameri
can people. The majority have on
their side what seem to be the irresisti
ble arguments of party consistency and
political gain. Some of the minority
express regret that the House has forced
them Into their present position, but
say that if the issue Is to be made
against the party It would be better to
face It with an accomplished result
rather thau half way steps.
The amendment of the rules will be
bitterly contested by men like Ingalls,
Kdmunds, Kvarte, Teller and Morrill,
but already Senators like Dawes and
l'rye ami ifoar have Joined the radical
column and are willing to vote for any
measure or any ruling which will earry
out the orders of Speaker Ueed,
The members of the Finance Com
mittee made an earnest plea last night
tor the consideration of the Tariff bill
before the partisan battle over the Elec
lion bill should begin. They argued
that the taiirf was a business matter
which ought to be settled at this session
end that It was vastly more important to
the parly than to attempt to capture a
few black districts or means of partisan
rt turning boards. '1 his view may poa
silly be adopted, but it witi hardly pre
vent the consideration of the BieetUm
bill. It will only shorten the time for
debate allowed upon each subject.
If the radical programme Is onee en
tered upon It will probably grow more
reckless and illegal as the days go
by. The obstacles which will be inter
posed by the Democratic minority and
by conservative ltepubllcan Senators
will be serious, but. as partisan passions
are heated, the measures adopted to sur
mount the obstacles, promise to ley oins
more awl more revolutionary. There
is a possibility hardly more than that
that the struggle of the minority may
be desperate enough to earry the bill
oter to the next session or secure radi
cal amendments in it.
Several of the Bepublkaa members
of the Committee on Elections are de
cidedly opno&ed to the form of the
Davenport bill, which was fathered by
Mr. Lodge, ami one of them said to day
that he would sever vote tor It in its
present shape. He declared it to be

to toe meeting would have nn excellent
Mr. O'Brien's discretion, however, Is
quite equal to his political acumen, ho
thoreupon telegraphed Mr. llelden for
tho authority necessary to make the

the Prince and Princess of Wales, the
Duke of Fife. Mr. Gladstone, Ilarosess
Burdett Coulte, Sir J. K. Mllllas. Lord

is an immense uncut diamond presented
by Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Carnegie. Mr.

faithfully looked after in the preeea

A NUMBER OF MEN MEET DEATH IN
A STEAMER'S HOLD.
Mysterious Wreck or a Hie freight
Vesoel Willie Tied Up nt Iter
Whnrr nt Chicago,
Chicago, July 12. An oxploslon
occurred last night on the steamer
Tioga, which was unloading at her
wharf nt tho foot of Washington street,
and it Is known that at least nine men
met death In tho lleico Are that fol
lowed; while many others were more or
less seriously Injured.
It appinrs that tho explosion occurred
just after a portor named William
Palmer had gone below with lighted
lamps. He had scarcely reached the
decks again when the fearful shock
come. It was said tliat two hundred
barrels of oil were among the cargo,
and that these had become Ignited.
Othcts Insisted that the explosion must
have been due to a lack of water In the
boilers, and that the second engineer,
who was known to bo missing, was the
man whose duty It would be to start
the pony pumps In such an emergency.
This, it was declared, would kave pro
duced just such an explosion, wrecking
only one compartment of the vessel.
THE SKARCII KOH THK l)Kl.
It was some time before the llames
could be checked sutticlently to allow
the tlremen to commence a search for
the dead, but as soon as possible an or
ganized attempt was made to reach the
hold where a gang of stevedores had
been at work.
All of the crew of twenty-five were
aboard at the time, and in addition to
them there must have been twelve to
fifteen other men killed ami a number
wounded The steamer sank soon after
the Are was extinguished, but as the
liver is not deep at her wharf, her
decks are above water.

The work of preparing the lighting
Sea correspondence for transmission to
the House has been completed by the
clerks of the Stale Department, and the
result Is an enormous mass of matter
compiislng over ono hundred and fifty
pages of lypc-wrltten manuscript, equal
to twenty thice columns of the ItWW.
It was the expectation that the cor
respondence would reach the House to
day, but a delay has occurred, caused,
according to rumor, by tho receipt at
the Btntc Department of a telegram
from Secretary Maine ordering the doc
uments to be held until the re oipt of
tho letter of transmittal, which he Is
now sold to bo preparing. 'Whe'.he'
this will be a State paper setting forth
tn further detail tho position of the
United Statos In tho pending contro
vcrsy Is still an open question.
Nothing In tho Ilehrlng Sea affair
since tho U'orW first rcorted the acute
crisis reached In the negotiation has at
traded as much attention In Was'iltut
ton as the publication to day In a New
York liepubllcaii organ of an editorial
entitled "Urltlsh Guns In Western
Waters," and which was evidently re
garded as of so much conHipicnc In
the olllce of the organ that It was fur
nished to the AssoiTatrd Fress and tjle
graphtd alt over Hie rountry.
WHAT 1M)K THIS MKAN'T
The fact that the editor la chief and
proprietor of that paper Is a United
States Minister to n foreign court, and
that he Is one of the closest personal and
political frleudsMr. lilalne has ever had,
and the further fact that, with thee.cep
tlon of Sir Julian l'auncafote's diplo
matic denial, the organ has carefully
suppressed every Item of news relating to
till Important cvect until to day, lend
additional interest to the publication.
Fiople here believe that It was Inspired
by Mr. Maine, and that It was done to
show the public that the negotiations
have not been so entirely harmonious
as blr Julian Fauncefole represented to
be the case on Monday morning. Ks
peclally significant Is the statement:
"It Is evident that Mr. Maine and
Lord Salisbury are still a long way
apart In their views. There
Is some reason to lielleve that a certain
quality of menace has been Imparted to
his (ballsbury's) later tones. This, at
least, may be assumed when his argu
ments are looked at In the light of his
If the negotiations are proceeding
amicably it is considered very unlikely
here that Mr. Maine's ottlclal organ
would say that Mr. Maine and Lord
Salisbury are still a long way
apart, ami If Lord Salisbury has not
tkteate&ed retaliation it isdllrlcult to
understand box a certain quality of
me usee has been imparted to the Urltlsh
l'remler's "later toues."
The State Department to day teceived
a long telegraphic report from our con
sul at Victoria, describing the move
ments of the Hritish heet and glvins: aa
opinion as to the reason for the unusual
gathering. The report was furnished
to certain officials of the Navy Depart
ment, but was carefully guarded to pre
vent its contents from reaching the pub
lie. A comparison of the war vessels of
