Senator Don Cameron of Pennsyl vanla rarely makes a speech. However, bo broke Bllonco on Wednesday. Our esteemed contemporary, tbo (Mnfm monal liecerd, roports this great ofTort as followa: ' Mr. Cameron I have In my band a letter from tlie HummolsUmn Brown-tone Com pany of Waltonvllc, Dauphin County, renn sylranla tho county In which I live dated Juno 4, 1S00, and signed by tbo secretary, Allen K. Walton, and I know him very well, In which he aayt: 'You have undoubtedly beard of tho hrownatnno Industry hero at llummols town, and no possibly aro aa much In t crested In tho tariff as any other manu facturcra." "Wo aro employing hero over five hun dred men In this Industry, and we do need protection from foreign stones which aro Imported Into this country 'rom Kngland, Scotland and tbo Canadian provinces. "You will find In the docks In Washing ton to-day, two largo vessel loads of atono which camo from Canada, and which Is be ing sold for less money than wo can afford to quarry and sell atone In Washington." Theto quarrtea Are situated about 140 miles from here, near llummelstowu and near the city of Harrlstnirg. This Is an In dustry which has grown up within the last ten or twelve year, ami n great deal of building (tone now being used In this city Is frt m these quarries " e aro advised that the MeKlnley Tariff I 111 placed a duty of 1 1 cents per cubic foot ru ficrstnuo and sandstone, but that tin Waja and Means Committee at the last roment offered an amendment changing tho duty to 11 cents. We would ask you, if possible, to have the duty placed at It cents, which Is not sufficient duty for pro tection, but Is at least better than the 11 cents called for by the amendment." Mr. Vest I could not hear the Ssnator from Pennsylvania very distinctly, but from what I gathered the purport of It Is tint this Interest Is doing very well. Jlr. Cameron 1 say It baa Increased largely. Mr. V est That la under the present duty. I think we bad better let It alone. Mr Cameron 1'crhapa we shall do bet tcr If we get an Increased duty ami that Is what I am after all the time. Mr l'latt What was called the Senate LIU of 1-AS fixed the duty after a full hear ing at fourteen cents a eubte foot. That Is what that letter referred to. The other House did not follow the Senate bill of lsss, hut reduced the duty to eleven eente per cuMo foot. The Senate Finance Com mittee, I am sorry to aay, followed the House Instead of following their first Iro- Lrmlon, which was rlgbt, awl It ought to arc bem fourteen cent per cubic foot. Mr. Cameron Mr. President, I shall l.iove to strike out In paragraph 131, on page 23, Hue 17, the word "eleven," before the word "cents," ami Insert "H," ao as to make the duty on freestone, granite, taud etone, limestone, etc., H cents a cubic foot. The frank and Ingenuous, not to say cheerful, way In which the Senator ad mits that "an Increase of duty" is what he is "after all the time," is refreshing In these days of hypocrisy and false pre tense, Yet, perhaps, as St. Paul said, "the truth should be spoken at all times." MICHIGAN HKPUIILICANS. EX SENATOR FXHKV TKYIXfi TO OBT BACK TO COKOKHM. Ghand Rai'ids, Mich.. Aug. & There is considerable consternation among the Republicans la the Fifth district in regard to the Congressional election this fall. Congressman Bel knap to day formally ami officially de clared to the district committee that he would not under any circumstances ae cept a renoudnutlen. That Mr. Belknap had reached thl conclusion was foreshadowed some tin ago, and a number ot the ambiltou and faithful party workers have been laying the rails on zigzag fences in or tier to fill Charles E. Belknap's show This district cocoes so near being Democratic that the Itepubllcaa Stat Committee have given It out boldly that the sure and only way to close up the breach is to make Thomas M. Ferry the nominee. The ex Senator has been very anxious for several years to get back in some official capacity, and from all accounts he wants to use Reed's ponton of Congress as a stepping stone tack to the upper house. Tom" Ferry virtually demands rec ognition from the ltepublieaa party for the iart he played in the Hayes-Tttdeu ontrovcrsy of 1878, when he was Presi dent j Urn. of Ike Senate, awl wkea he helped to carry out a vital proposi tion fur the nation, whack has since proved to he aa unfortunate act for the U OP " lx senator Ferry, ae will he tbhibim UtcJ just missed a six year term lit the female on account of hie taaacial circumstances.

THE FOIICB Bildj DISOWNED. ALABAMA HRrUHLICANS WIIO STAID AWAY FJlOH. THR TOI,!. Eirminoham, Ala., Ahr. 8. The falling oft In the Republican vote In the State election, It appears, was due to the Lodge bill. Tho most active of the white Republicans In this State are op posed to the bill, and many of tbem do not hesitate to say that it it becomes rt law tboy will In future vote the Demo cratic ticket In all local elections. In this el'y lliore nre several hundred whtto Republicans, among them many prominent politicians. Less than fifty while Republicans went to the polls Monday. Immediately after tho election n re pott was circulated here that tho party managers In Washington had sent out an order that the Republicans In Ala bama refrain from voting, In order that the small vote might boused as an argu ment in tbo Senate that Republicans had been threatened and bulldozed until they were afraid lo go to tho polls. Tho New York TYmrV correspondent yostr day called on one of the leading Repub licans of the State, who stands very high In Washington, and asked it there was any truth in this report. He said If any such otder had been issued bo had not heard of It. "Then how do vou account for tho falling off in the Republican voter" he was asked. "To tell tho truth I think tbo Lodgo bill Is responsible for It. The Republi cans of tho South aro not In favor of that bill. Many of them nre too weak kneed to openly express their disap proval, so they express It by falling to vote. Very few whito Republicans in this Stnto voted and they made no ef fort to bring out tho negro vote. If that bill becomes a law It will nnko Democtnts In all local elections of tbo btst Rebttbllcans In the South. Thofe of us who have business Intnests cannot nfTord to lave them ruined by any such foolish law. If the I.i dee bill were passed it could not be enforced In this section and I don't be lieve nny white Republican would try to have It enforced." "Will n. full Republican voto be nollod In the Congreulonal ulectlon If the Lodgo bill becomes a lnT" 'No. UnleM the bill Is killed In the Fenato there will be fow. If any, mow Republican votes polled In November than in August. Rut for thnt bill anil the effect ot tho consequent agitation we would have elected three Congress men from this State Iu November easily. As it is we will elect none."

The State Dem ocratic Convention, which promised to be lively In scvoral particulars, proved rathor tame outside ot the contests over the Attorney Generalship and Agricul ture Commlssionershlp.

Tho Investigation by the Congres sional Committee on Civil Service Re form was resumed this morning at the room of the committee In the sub-basement ot the Capitol building. Civil Servlco Commissioners Lyman, Roose velt and Thompson were present, nnd Chairman Leklbach nnd Congressmen Grccnbalge, Hopkins and Stone, of the committee. President Lyman continued his state ment. Ha said he wished to chango some figures he mndo yesterday. The total number of persons that had passed tho civil servlco examination up to Juno iiO, 1880, wcro 15,009; tho total number up to Juno 30, 1800, bo sold, would probably aggregate 90,ui0. The annual salattes paid, he said, together with expenses, amounted to $30,-150. Lyman than made A DBTAII.r.D 8TATRMBXT of the nppoitlonment of nnpolntmonts for which convenient examinations nre held in nil the States nnd Territories. Mr. Grccnbalge Do the soldiers hnvo priority over cllglbles lu other States? "Yes. sir, under section 1731 of the Revised United States Statutes." Mr. Lymanshowed a schedule exhibit of Hie examinations made during the current year, the time and places and the n til i-s traveled by the o.vunlnor.i. The rchcdules, Mr. Lyman slid, are generally given out to the press nsi cl.v lions and such local papers as wish them. There Is one exception made In the apiiortlomnent of appointments, ami nrd that is In the Rureaii of Engraving and l'rlnllng. The position belnj n icnil mechanical one, that of assistants to plolo printers at $1.25 per diem, the position is not such .as to attract appli cants from remote sections of the coun try. . cnatrman J.euioacn now 11 it ttiat the plate printers who gel $1,900 per annum are nnt required lo pas n civil service examination, while their assist ants, who only get fl 35 per day, are required to pats a civil service examina tion? "Tbo plate printers," replied Mr. Lyman, "are classified, but aro ex empted from examination. One Im portant reason for this is that the plate printers all belong to the trades union and the Civil Service Commission did not deem it wise to have anything to do with that question. The plate printer has no choice In the appointment of his assistant." Continuing, President Lyman said that after a person had passed a six months' probation he may be TllANSFKIIKRD AND l'ROMOTBO In another Department without another examination. There Is an exception to this rule in the Tieasury Department. Persons who have been separated from the sen Ice without misconduct cau be reinstated within a year; he has the right of every other cltUen for applica tion and reappointment. Mr. Stone Suppose a party should be charged with larceny, would lie have the privilege of application and appointment? President Lyman read from the law that It would be within the province ot the appointing officer to consider such an application ami as to whether the person at the time ot bis application was a proper one fur appointment. Mr. Hopkins Then I understand that a (tarty who has been receiving a salary of $1,000 per annum ean be certi fied for transfer and promotion in another department on a basis of com petitive examination? r-HOMOTlOhS r'OK KKFU'IBKCT. "Yes, sir; upon a reeord of his effi ciency regularly kept in the office where he had been employed." Mr. Stone Have you authority to ex tend jour law la the matter of promo tions? "Yes, sir, under general rule S the Commission has such authority. Chairman Leklbach Are laborers In tke cUssiied list? "No. sir." "llntn why is it that tke plate print ers are clsssiineil and at tke same time exempted ffom wftHtinftttoBT' President Lyman then replied "tkat the question as to whether or not plate printers were considered laboren re mained with a higher power." Mr. Greenkalge read tke law: "Not fhaii any laborer he compelled to stand an examination, etc. lie asked Presi dent Lyman if any conduction kad been daced una this section of the law by ike Attorney General. "No sir," replied Mr. Lyman. At 18 o'clock an adjournment was taken until W:3fl o'clock tomorrow morning. AsttMsr KnsflW to Xw Yea. Kkw Yonjt. Aug. atthjir Krupp of Germany hat arrived in tkj city.

No clergy man was present, and no word of re ligious Import was uttereel. The family of the dead murderer had failed to claim his dead lnxly and It was to be Interred as the law directs. The same secrecy had leen observed In tho preparations for the funeral that has characterized the whole execution. Nolody was apprised ot the hour of the occurrence, and the grave, which Is still In the sixth row, the twenty-tint grave In the row, was dug between dark nnd daylight, being completed at -I n. m. It was nt that hour that the collln, con taining the remains, was placed in Ihe democrat wagon belonging to the prison. A convict drove It. Keeper Miller s.tt on the seat, nnd thnt was the extent of the procession. Driving rapidly, by a circuitous route, the wagon was sent bowling to the cem etery, a mile from the prison. Few noticed It. and nobody knew whit It contained. Arriving at the graveyard, which Is a neglected patch overrun with wild carrot and a plague amt to the cliy, the wigon was stopped, the men dismounted, nnd with the at I of two waiting grave-diggers, the c till 1 was placed In a rough box and lowered Into its place. The grave diggers be gin at once to fill In theeirth, and before the people of the el'v hid awakened to the duties of the div Ketnmler bad been burled. In pur suauce of the policy of secrecy denial Is made of the fact ot the burial, but the newly-made grave Is there. DR. FELL'S OPINION. UK THINKS Knt!ON's THKOttV IlEn.VRU- io KLKCTiiot mox wkoxh. Ih'FiMLo, N. Y., Aug. 8. Dr. George E. Fell was asked last night what he thought of the criticism made by E lison of the manner of conducting the elec tric current to the boely of Ketnmler. "I think be Is wrong; all wrong," promptly said the Doctor. "A current passed etlrectly to the brain destroys all consciousness. A current )asted through the body may or way not destroy con sciousness. I know this to be so, from my own experience. I have taken heavy shocks through the hands my self, which I could not have taken through the brain. I have known cases where one side of the brain would be affected and the other not affected at all by currents traversing Ihe liody. 'Ihe power of feeling would be benumbed on one side and yet re main active on the other. The appli cation ot electrodes to the bead and bate of the spinal column insured the cur rents traversing the spine ami acting directly on the nerve centres and the brain. Coeaciousness would be an nulled. Should tbla current be weak ami Insufficient to kill outright the man would not be tortured. A current sent through the body might, unless it wn of exceedingly high voltage, but partly benumb the brain and sufficient con sciousness would remain to receive the sensation of pain. The method of up plication which was employed. I be Ileve, lo be the inokt certain aud so the niott humane." Dr. Fell also emphatically said that he disagreed with anyone who said that Ktwmler was not killed by tke first sbeck If that shoe had been ot higher voltage or longer continued there would not have been tke muscular contractions of the diaphragm, which resembled breathing. The execution was imperfect onlyheeause of meckan leal difficulties. The remedy ley not in tke application of electricity to the condemned, but In tke generation and conduction of tke current to tke chair. BLAMING DK. SPITZKA.

Rorrox, Aug. 8. One man, at the muffle of Ids repeating rifle, hekl In check BOO rioters In the State Prison at Charleston yesterday afternoon. The riot broke out In the shoe shop ami wm part of a preconcerted plan for a whole sale jail delivery. The .WS convicts have been Insubordinate more or less since the outbreak six weeks ago over the Rerthrnng system of measuring prisoners. Yesterdny afternoon, at a given sig nal, convicts In the shoe shop lie-ran to veil and shout and throw things about. The officials In the room became ap prehensive and fled to the main prison. Patrolling the wall opposite the door that opened from the shoe shop Into the prison yard wns Officer Howard. The plan was to raise n disturbance, shoot Howard nnd then scale the prison walls and escape. Two minutes after the rioting began, Convict Evans, standing by the ojien window, fired at Oltlcer Howard nn the wall. He missed. Again ho fired nnd again he missed. A howl of execration went up from the men clustered just Inside the door. Tbero stood Howard like n statue, the tnuzr.lo of his Winchester pointing straight at the door of the workshop ready to shoot down the flrst man who stepped across the threshold. Not a man unieu. iiacK ami form in me stiop they rafeel, smashing windows, slashing leather and breaking machinery. Mean while help had lieen summoned and patrol wagons filled with police cam 1 rattling tin from every direr tlon. Morj than one hundred nttlcer were quickly on the Mil, and with drawn revolvers In band tbev rushed Into tlte shoe ho; from the main prison. The sight f the revolvers coaed the rioters and they were quickly searched and locked In their cells. HKAKCIAL AND COMMEROL Jfew Viirk Ntncka.

It Is safe to aesume of course that the visit was not one of pleasure merely, and that matters of public Internet, in nnd out of Congress, formed the basis of more thnn one conversation between the President and the Secretary of State. In assuming this the gnmlps ate quite light, but when they give TtlKIK IMAGINATION rufcl. ffcAT ami begin to come down to details as to what took place, or, better still, assume to Inform the public as to the preeise point where General Hatrlson ami Mr. ltlalne dllTer on questions of public con cern, and as to the consequence to which such ill (Terences are likely to lead, they write themselves down to put il mildly attea. The conferences between the Presi dent and Mr. ltlalne. It it bo longer 11 secret, referred mainly to the new pits which the negotiations over Tim liKiiiii.vi se mrrirct.Tr have assumed. Precisely what this 1I1 ate It, and whether It it regarded by the Administration as favorable to the Internals of the I'ulted State, or the tevct-e, it mil known here. So far tho President has not seen fit to communi cate much on this subject to any of the manv vUitont who have called at the White House since his return. The general impression, however, prevails that the recent publication of the llehilng Sea enrretpomhnce hat ma terially strengthened the case of the United Slates, notwithstanding the un patriotic ertoits of Democratic sheets and tub m.Aixr itxTixo crowd of Mugwump organs to belittle Ihe splen did effort of the Administration to stand up for American rigbtt agalntt the un warranted encroachments of a foreitrtt power, and that, therefore, the present status of the negotiations is to be re garded as more satisfactory than when Mr. ltlalne saw himself compelled to wiife his celebrated note of June 30, in reply to Lord Salisbury's protest That reciprocity .nd kindred subjects were likewise discuss-..', by the President and the Secretary of State need not be doubted. Hut to assume that en these subjects there exists a radical differeece of opinion between the two men U t assume something that Is KOT WAHHASTED MY THK PACT. The principles, indeed, which each 1m lleve to underlie a sound public policy in regard to any attempts that may be made to secure an extension of our f urelgn commerce, are the tame. ich believes in making tugar to some extent the baslt ot reciprocity witk certain South American countries. To some extent, likewise, does tke amendment to tke sugar schedule recently lntn duced by Senator Pierce represent the President's Ideas on the subject. It U well known that he does not de sire, now that the House has voted " make sugar free, that the Senate should restore the duty, believing this to he ax tewisE TW in view of the bad effect it would have upon friendly governments with which It might seem desirable to enter into closer trade relations, and wkkk might regard suck a step as an evidence of in slmerliy, not to av unfriendliness, on our pert. Hut ke does believe that the Chief Executive could safely be in trusted witk tke power of restoring, either at a whole or in part, tke duty on sugar as against countries which, after a certain period, should continue, as tkey do now, to discriminate against certain of our products. It it alia well known tkat tke President does sot look favorably upon tke proposition to rax a uovvvt, except, perksps, in tke ease of ang manufactured from beet Naet and, sor ghum. But kedoee not on tkat account eondemn tke sugar schedule a pro red by tke Uouae. On tke contiiry . ike main, ke favosa iu leedio features, and is understood to have said so time and again Leading tUpuUb-ana is ike Uouse it It only fair to aay, oppose strongly tke Idea of investing any President witk tke extraordinary power of adiing or cancelling by one stroke of kit pea fad. oeiu.uuu uf tke pubitv revenue.
