"That provision has boon stricken out
of thu bill. States, howuver. should bo

Tho President to-ilny submitted to tho

Upon receipt of this telcgrnm Secre

thnttho German Government would not

an American, le(l tlio Samoans.
Count Arco was directed by his gov
ernment to flay that tho treaty righto of
thu United States shall be respected, and
beg the United States to join In restoring
culm nnd quiet on the Island.
Secretary Bayard then wroto Count
Arco to the offect that ho had no knowl
edge of nny American named Klein who
had led tho Samoan forces, ami said
Klein certainly lin.il no relation with tho
American public or nrlvntu sorvico.
r Secretary Bayard says that Admiral
Klmberly, with tho war-ship Tientou.
has been ordered to Apia, nud ho trusts
that, together with commanders of other

Nnw Yomc, Jan. 10. Tlio Sun says:
Tlio stenographic report of tho confer

rond lines west of Chicago and St. Louis
nnd representatives of banking houses,
hold nt tho residence of Mr. J. Plerpont
Morgan, In tills city, Inst Thursday, hns
been printed lu a pamphlet of nearly
100 pages for distribution ninonc those
who attended tho meeting. As nil of the
routine matter and tho results, of tlio
meeting hnvo been printed, tho docu
mentis vnlttablo chiefly for tho, discus
sions thnt took place and tho expressions
of views ihnt wero made.
It appears that, althouah Mr. Morgan
presided, tho most ncllvopart wns, taken
by Mr. Clinrlu's Francis Adams, and tlio
impression is inevitable that, although
Mr. Morgan nnd his associates Svero re
sponsible for- getting tlio railroad men
together, tho credit of hnrnionUing them
belongs very largely to Mr. Adams.
Tho Sun prints copious extracts from
tlio report of tho discussion Including the
Mr. Adams, In presenting tho plan for asso
ciation, said: "It merely amounts to two pro
positions nothing moro nor nothing clso,
l'ho first proposition IS that tho Interstate Com
mcico f.aw should bo cnfoiccd. The second
pioposlllou Is that when questions arlso bo
tween tho companies formlne this association,
they shall bo decided by arbitration. It only
remains to decide hero to-day whether any
gentleman representing a railroad company Is
prepared to stand up and say before tho pub
lic and to us that ho Is opposed to obeying
tho law and further that In matters of contro
versy ho pcrfers to tako tho law lu his own
bands, rather than submit to an arbitration."
Mr. Jay Gould suggested that tho agree
ment ouglit to bo for at least one year, that
sixty days was not long enough.
Mr. Adams said: "After wo get this thine
going for sixty day, I want to sco tho man
tuai wouiu uaro withdraw, lie would liavo
to glvo thirty dajs' notice; ho would liavo to
specify the ground on which ho withdrew and
wo aro perfectly willing, If tho agreement
stands for sixty days, to meet tho tssuo. If It
Is then presented; but wu think wo should
not 'cross that stream until wo come to It.' "
Mr. Adum's motion that tho- ccucral scopo
ot tho plan Is satisfactory to tho gentlemen
present was seconded by Mr. Joy Gould.
President Roberts of tho Pennsylvania road
Said: "I think it Idle for tho present capital

was suggested that Georgo Meadows, who
was lynched nt Pratt's Mines yester

Six deputy sheriffs wont out and thoy
found llvo hundred woll-nrmed. cool anil
resolute men ready to recolvu them.
Not n drop of llrjuor hnd been sold In tlio

every man was sober.
Tho deputies had almost reached tho

"If the olllccrs get that negro ho will 'bo
acquitted on the pluu nf insanity." "Oh,
he'd never bo tried," said others.
"Wo'yo got no faith in the juries aud
the law Is a farce."
These and similar expressions wero

Tho prisoner was tlio coolest man In
tho crowd. He said: "Go ohcad anil

A mnn lu thu crowd nt this moment
elbowed his way up to tho prisoner and
caucu on tno crown to consider wnat
they wcro doing, as there was Mill a
cham-u of the man's innocence.
"Ho assaulted a negro girl, anyhow,
and ho should hang for that." This
settled his fate.
"You hnvo got n minute, to live. No;
wo will make it live, if you want to

his hand. Thu dcoirxtl man's lips tiein
bled slightly, thu only sign of emotion
visible. "I do not want to pray. I did
not do it."
"He is stubborn. IIo'll never con

500 bullets pierced tho body. Mrs. Kel
