Prior to the assembling of the Republican state con vention here this morning a meeting of the state committee wna held, at which it was decided to hold the next state conven tion for the nomination of governor an.l other sttte officers at Hurrisburg on Wednesday, May 23. The convention wn c died to order at 12:20 o'clock. The roll call showed a full attendance of delegates. All the officers and committees appointed at the last convention were retained. The convention, in hen of a platform, indorsed resolutions declaring that "the situation in Washington give the con vention not only state but national im portance, and that it invite the fullest possible expression of public views on Tuesday, the 20tli of February next, to the end that all our land may know the tenor of current thought upon a most immediate and vital i.isue presented in the "Wilson bill."

There was not a very brilliant setting for the opening of the tariff debate in the bouse this morn ing. When Speaker Crisp mounted the rostrum at high noon and dropped the gavel, there were many vacant seats iu th public galleries. After the routine business had been transacted the fiebt on the tariff bill began. Mr. Boutelle, ou behalf of the He publicans, put forth the Hawaiian matter. Sir. McCreary, chairman of the foreign af fairs committee, sought to avoid this subject,' by trying to make an arrange ment bv which Friday and Saturday of this week should be set isido for the con sideration of the resolution reported by the foreign affairs committee in lieu of the Hit t and Boutelle resolutions. Mr. Hitr, chairman of the minority of the foreign affairs committee, stated that inasmuch as this proposition gave the Re publicans substantially what they desired, namely, a time fixed for the debate of the Hawaiian matter, he would be glad to ac cept it. Mr. Boutelle was immediately on bis feet. "Mr. Speaker," said he, "'I desire to call up, as a question of privilege, the resolution introduced by myself reciting that the rights and liberties of the house have beeu invaded by the executive." In an instaut a dozen members began protesting. After silencing the turbulence, and stat ing that he desired to examine into the status of the resolution, during which time considerable confusion reigned, Sneaker CrisD held that inasmuch as Mr. Boutelle's resolution was on the speaker's table, it had not lost its privilege. ..Mr. incMillin thereupon raiseu tue question of consideration against it. and, after some further wrangling, a vote was taken. The Republicans refused to vote when their names were called, and when the call was finished the vote stood loo to SO, the Democrats lacking forty of a quorum. The Democrats found themselv33 in a humiliating position, not being able to muster a quorum. They were in check, nud, after revokiuc Ml leaves of absence, Mr. Wilson reluctantly moved an adjourn ment. The Democrats confidently expect a quorum tomoriow. The result of to day's Republican tactics will probably be that the Hawaiian matter will be post poned until the tariff bill is disposed of. SENATE. Washington', Juu. 3. When the vice president rapped the senate to order at 12 o'clock today baldly a score of senators were iu their seats, and it was some time before the presence of a qtorum could be demonstrated. Immediately after the reading of the journal Senator Blackburn of Kentucky presented the credentials of Senator Eppa Huuton of Virginia, and the oath of oflicc was administered to the new senator. Mr. Frye of Maine presented a resoln tiou, declaring tbnt in tlu opinion of the- I .......

He asKed that the resolution lie upon the table for the present, and stated that ho would Liter ask its reference to the committee on foreign relations. The reso lutiou occasioned a manifestation of in terest, A bill (called np by Mr. Pagh of Alabama) for the relief of certnin aliens who had acquired property iu the District of Columbia caused much discussion, as it developed the fact that aliens were incom petent to hold property in the District of Columbia. Mr. Harris of Tennessee thought the present law obnoxious, and that a general bill should be introduced permitting alieus to hold property in thedistiict. Issue on this poiut was promptly taken by Mr. Cockrell of Missouri, who approv ed of the present law, and said that he hoped thu time would never come when aliens could hold property in the district. After some further discussiou Mr. Harris withdrew his objsctious, and the bill was passed, it being for the relief of David IJ. Codvvell, and legalizing Ins ownership of real estate in the district. On motion of Mr. Gorman the senate went into executive -ession, and at the conclusion of the executive session ad iourued. MINERAL OUTPUT FOR 1892. WASHINGTON, Jan. 3. The report on the mining resources of the country for lSfJ, prepared by Chief Day of the division of mining statistics of the geological survey, was made public today. It shows that high water-mark iu mineral production was reached in 1S92, both in this and every other country. Tbe total value of all the mineral products of the United States for that 5 ear was $G34,77S,7r.S. This is 520, 000,000 sreater than the amount for any Drevious year. Among the greatest gains was that of S77.130 tons in pig iron, with an aggregate proJnct of 0,1 "57,000 tons, valued at $131,161,030 Gold showed a siiirht loss, the ear's product bcinc 1 59;, 37."5 ounces Copper cuued r7.4iVi,GJ pound, miikincr an agcregnte rf 35-3,2 j., 742 pounds.

The use of the principal minerals iu tbe first six months of last 3ear is nlso re viewed in the renort. showing a great de cline in production, as was anticipated fiom the general trade depression. THE INCOME TAX. WASHINGTON, Jan. 3. Representative Jerry Simpson, in an interview today, said that the populist section of congress would solidly support the income tax plan He regarded it. as opening the war for free trade, saying that a revenue tariff will be necessary so long as revenues are not raised from incomes or some other sources. Mr. Simpson asserted that the plau will be inimeusely popular with the masses. Representative Tarsney of Missouri, one of the members of the ways and means committee, who voted for the income tax, today met the objectiou that tremendous oppositiou would come from the class re ceiving incomes with the laconic remark: "There are more men driving drays than receiving incomes." A QUESTION OF JURISDICTION. Washington, Jan. 3. In the supreme court today, Famous Smith, an Indian, condemned to death for the murder of another Indian in the Jndian Territory, secured favorable action on bis appeal, the court holding that affrays between Indians in the territory must be tried by the local courts of special lndiau jurisdiction, and not by tbe federal courts. In the case of Marshal L. Tucker, a con demned murderer, who killed ii white woman. Lucy May, in Arkansas, the sen tence of the lowir court was affirmed. AFFAIRS IN BRAZIL. Washington, Jan. 3. The secretary of the navy hits received tbe following cable from Admiral Denham, on board tbe San Francisco, under date of Pernambuco, Jan. 2: "Everything as quiet as possible throughout Brazil. To ere are no reasons to apprehend trouble at present. Will leave here tomorrow for Bahia." KAN5ASAND MISSOURI MINERS. Kansas City, Jan. 3. A special confer ence, representing the various branches of the United Mine Workers of America in Missouri and Kansas, was in session iu this city today. The meeting was called by Vice President Peun of the natioual organization, to hear charges of misman agement against M. L. Walters, president of division No. 14. Mr. Walters did not appear, and his absence created consider able adverse comment. The forenoon was spent in an informal discussion of the affairs of the organiza tion. The Kansas and Bevier strikes were pronounced failures, and the principal blame therefor was thrown on Mr. Walters. Iu the afternoon several speeches, bitterly deuouueiug Mr. Walters, were made. A committee was appointed to draft resolutions, and an adjournment for tbe day was taken. Though refusing tq talk of the proceed ings, which were secret, Vice President Penu said that Mr. Walters and a few other members in southern Kansas had secedad, and whether or uot they would make an effort to bring them back, they would viuuicate the national organization iu that district. "The stiike in Kansas last spring," con tiued Mr. Penn, "was criminally misman aged. The national organization furnish ed money to carry ou the strike, and it was paid to populist agitators to make speeches and advance- Wallets. Walters wanted to go to confess, and used to lay back last summer while the miners were buttering through bis lault." He said that the strike never ought to have been begun, and that it had not re ceived the sanction of the national organi zation. The miners held a secret meeting to night, and it was given out after adjourn ment that a resolution bad been adopted declaring vacant all oflicial positions in district 14, of which Mr. alters is presi dent. Tbe following officers were elected: Pre-ddeut, Robert Curley ot Scrauton, Kan.; vice-president, T. It. Jones of Be vier; sectetary and treasurer, G. H. Chap man of Corda, Mo.; executive board James Cathcart of Scrauton, Charles Spuru of Richmond, Mo.; H. V. Pember- tonof Higginsville, Mo., aud IhoniiS of Mai celtne, Mo. MISSOURI MINING STATISTICS-JEI-KKH80N Cm, Mo., Jan. 3. State In-iptctors of Mines Charles Evans, who has charge of the coal mines, and Francis A. Legrave, in charge of the lead, zinc and iron mines, have just completed their figures concerning these industries for the past year. Concerning coal mininc, Mr. Evans says that there has been an increase in tonnage. The actual output from tbe mine for the year was 3,ltK),442 tons; against 2,017,265 tons for 1SKJ. Tbi value of the coal miued was $3,309,081. The increased product was made up with thirty-one mines less than were operated iu lSlrJ. Dunug lat year 404 mines, large aud small, were operated. The report of Mr. Legrave gives a very gloomy summary of lead, zinc and Iron mining, particularly the latter. He calls j attention to the general decrease in the production of ore, but ventures the opinion that this is due in a great measure, if not entirely, to the stringency of the money market, aud the consequent low price of ore. Lead aud zinc Mere mined in eight counties, while in 1S92 eimilar ore was produced in fourteen counties. For 1S03 there were 40,20" tons of lend mined, valued at 30 34 per ton, and 10S.591 tons of zmc, valued at $20.57 per tou. This gives the total value ot the lead and 7.iuc mined during the past year as S,S30,.'J7. In 1K2 the value was 75,056.505. CENTRAL AMERICAN REBELS Managua. Nicaragua, Jan.

TOLEDO, Jan. 3 The largest fire which has visited Toledo for the past tweuty years occurred today, when u number of her finest business blocks went up in smoke, causing a loss of fully $1,200,000. The fire broke out a few ntiuutos after 6 o'clock iu the elevator of Quale & Co., on the river, fronting Madisuu and Walter streets. The cause is unknown. The elevator and its contents were soon a mass of tuius. A strong wind carried the Humes across Madison street to the elevator and business block of C. A. Kiug, which was soon devoured. The flames next spread westward across Walter street, catching the flvc-story block kuown as the chamber ot commerce building, occupied by the Western Uuion Telegraph company, the American District company aud a large number of office firms, aud it also was destroyed. From tnis the flames spread south to the five story building occupied by the musenm and theater known as "Wonder land." This wm, gutted within a few minutes.

In November last tbe Vossischc Zeitung of this city published a story from Kovno, capital of tlio govern ment of that name in Russia, stating that the imperial authorities, who are, of course, members of tbe Greek cnurcb, bad ordered that tbe Catholic church at ivroche. iu that trovernmeut. be dn-ed. With tbe purpose, it wa sid, of prevut- ing the order from being carried out, large number of Catholics took posssIon of the church and held it day aud nignt agninst tlio. authorities. Yesterday the Volks Zaltung published mail advices from Krosche bearing ont lu every way the first story of the killing of the Catholics. It adds that th Coiwcks displayed the srstcst barbarity and look fiendish delight in killing defeuiclrs. women and children. It is Mid tbst some of the young women wer subjected to tbo vilest indignitiits by tbe Cossacks. After the capture of the church by the poldiers the building was desecrated In every con ceivable wy, some of tbe Cossack throw ing the host from the nlttr and trtmpling upon it- The religious symbol and church decorations were completely de stroyed.
