; Wabhtkgtoit, D. C, October 18. The
'conference report on the bill' for the allot
ment of lands in severalty to the United
Peorias and Miamis in the Indian Territory
was presented and agreed to.
Senator Gray, in the absence of the two
Connecticut senator?, presented and read a
memorial of 500 citizens of Connecticut,
workingrnen, wage earners, manufacturers
and farmers in favor of the Mills bill and
the admission of raw materials, particularly
wool, salt, lumber, tin plates, etc., free of
'duty, was laid on the table with the resolu
tion for a recess from next Saturday io the
19th of November, and Senator Paddock
moved to amend it by making the reces3 be
gin on the 27th of November and end on th9
J2th of November.
Senator Allison said he had consulted sen
ators on both sides of the cnamber and
thought the prevailing opinion was in favor
of adjournment until the first Monday in
December. He understood that the senator
from Georgia (Mr. Brown) would offer a
resolution to that eff eot and if bo, he (Mr.
Allison) would support it
Senator Brown thereupon offered a reso
lution for a final adjournment of this ses
sion at 1 o'clook next Saturday. He said he
did not believe that the passage of the tariff
bill wonld be effected by a prolongation of
the session. If the democrats were success
ful at the coming presidential election,
something like the Mills bill would be
passed, and if the republicans were success
ful something like the senate bill would be
passed. The popular opinion on the Bubject
would be known after the election.
Senator Evarts spoke in favor of Senator
frown's resolution, and Senator Paddock
'favored the amendment offered by him.
Senator Cockrell ridiculed a remark by
Senator Paddock to the effect that he and
hia peode desired the passage of the senate
ibill. That claim he eaid was perfectly far
cical. If republican senators wanted to
pass the bill before the election the demo
cratic senators wonld stay with them, but
it was a farce to undertake it, and the sena
tor from Nebraska knew it,
Senator Paddock 6aid that the primary
'trouble about the matter was that there had
sot been a quorum in the house for six
Senator Cockrell That does not make a
particle of difference. The house has noth
ing to do with the bill. Now, when the sen
ate passes this bill there will be a quorum of
'the house to act on it. It is the republican
senate that has to do with it.
' The presiding officer intimated that Sena
tor Cockrell was not in order, and expressed
the hope that the senators would co-operate
with him in maintaining order.
. Senator Cockrell We will do so. We will
,help you. Laughter. Do not (to Senator
Paddock) trouble yourself about the house.
,The house will take care of itself; take care
of the senate. Here is your responsibility,
j After some further discussion by Senators
.Cockrell, Paddock and Aldrich, Senator
Allison said he would accept the amendment
Joffered by Senator Brown. A majority of
the democrats voted in the affirmative, while
ja majority of the republicans voted no.
There was a demand for a division, and the
(chairman, after a longer pause than usual,
declared the concurrent resolution adopted.
, Mr. Teller offered a resolution instructing
iha committee on Indian affairs, to inquire
,as to the truth of the report that the secre
tory of the interior has purchased a large
jnumber of wagons for the Indian service,
that were manufactured with prison labor in
the Btate of Tennessee. He made some re
marks on the subjeot, intimating that the
'complaint was against the late commis
'sioner of Indian affairs.
; After a lively debate between Senators
Teller, Bate and Cockrell, the resolution
4went over on an objection by Senator
S The senate then took a recess for half an
jhour, in the expectation of some message
. from the president.
The senate then resumed consideration
of the tariff bill, and was addressed by Sen
ator Aldrich, one of the members of the
finance committee. Senator Aldrich as
serted that the table concerning tariff rates
in the house and senate bills, furnished by
the bureau of statistics and produced some
days ago by Senator Vest, was full of mis
statements and errors, and entirely inaccu
rate and misleading, and that the bureau
officials, if they knew anything about the
subject, must have known that it was. The
"discussion was continued by Senators Frye,
lEvarts and Teller.
i Senator Cockrell replied to Senator Al
drich's criticism of the tables of the bureau
and said that they were perfectly correct,
land had been made out under headings pre
pared by himself and Mr. Eppenstein, a
Prussian employe of the bureau, who had
(been in the department at least since 1869,
and who bad no interests directly or indi
rectly in any misrepresentations.
Senator Allison offered n resolution au
thorizing the finance committee to continue
the investigations into tariff matters, which
.was laid over until to-morrow, and the sen
ate then adjourned.
, Wasiiixgton, D. C, October 18. Mr. Cox,
F of New York, was in the chair when the
house met this morning. After prayer by
the chaplain, Mr. Farquhar, of New York,
e and called the chair's attention to rule
of the house, which directs the speaker to
cause the journal to be read on the appear
ance of a quorum. He was unwilling that
certain members should absent themselves,
while others like himself had remained here
since December. There had been one or
two motions to adjourn which had been
treated somewhat cautiously and it was time
that the house should come to some reason
able arrangement as to whether membsrs
houldbe parties to a political game or
'whether they should adjourn properly and
in order. He believed that the speaker in
the house, whatever his engagements might
be elsewhere, and there was no reason for
his absence on account of sickness, should
preside over the skeleton house as long as
the members were willing to stay to trans
Act the skeleton business. He felt that it
wasn't only a disgrace but an affront to the
intelligence of congress to have too insig
nificantly attended bodies waiting patiently
the movements of the political parties.
Mr. Bichardson of Tennessee, demanded
the regular order, and the speaker pro tern
directed the clerk to read the journal, but
Mr. Farquhar objected, and eslled attention
to the fact that there was no quorum
The speaker pro tern said that (he chair
had not counted the house and couldn't tell
officially whether there was a quorum pros
eat or not The present occupant of the
chair didn't like to rule on the question so
.as to change the universal practice. The
journal was then read and the speaker pro
tern said that without objection the journal
would stand approved.
E. B. Taylor, of Ohio I object
The speaker pro tern Does the gentleman
offer as amendment?
Jar. Taylor I do not I object
The speaker pro tern The quetjifn "is oa
approving the journal. .
The question having been put, Mr. Taylor
raised the point of no quorum.
The speaker pro tern said that on examin
ation be discerned that it was the duty of
ibe speaker as i not the house to approve
tkeioomaL .The journal was therefore ap-
granting the right of way to a water com
pany across am Indian reservation in Ari
zona, and asked consent to non-concur in
the senate amendment Agreed to.
On motion of Mr. Forney, of Alabama, a
resolation was adopted authorizing the com
mittee on appropriations to sit during tne
The speaker pro tem laid before the house
the adjournment resolution of the senate.
Mr. McMillan, of Tennessee, briefly re
viewed the work of what he termed the
present extraordinary session of congress,
devoting himself especially to the consider
ation of action on the tariff bill.
Mr. Bayne, of Pennsylvania, in discussing
the Mills bill, averred that the bill, as it
passed the house, was the protection and in
spiration of the sugar trust A leading dem
ocrat of New York, the president of the
trust, had appeared eiiher directly or indi
rectly before the ways and means commit
tee, and secured from that committee such
protection as would enable the trust to
flourish. '
Mr. Turner, of Georgia, said that the gen-
tlamnn had nrohnblv fo'eotten that the
statement made by him had been denied by
all the gentleman who constituted the ways
and means committee, and as the gentleman
persisted in the statement he (Mr. Turner)
would be obliged if the gentleman would
state the evidence upon which he founded it
Mr. Bayne rcplied that it was denied by
eentlemen here that Mr. Havemeyer ap
peared before the ways and means commit
tee, officially, but it was admitted by mem
bers of the committee that Mr. Havemyer
and his attorney had conversations with
them respecting tne duties on sugar.
Mr. Breckenridge, of Kentucky The
statement the gentleman has made is abso
lutely untrue. That must go on record.
Mr. McMillan It is a statement which
cannot be substantiated in any way in the
world, for it is absolutely devoid of all fact'
Mr. .Bayne remarxea mai ine commitiee
had consciously or unconsciously after the
visit of Mr. Havemyer, changed the Mills
bill so as to protect the sugar
trust The original bill reported by the
committee drew the line at No. 16, but it was
changed as to draw the line at No. 13. The
object sought by the sugar trust was to have
the line drawn at No. 13, and the result of
the change was to the advantage of the trust.
The visit of Mr. Havemeyer and the change
in the bill was coincident
Mr. Turner said that the statement of the
fact made by the gentleman was untrue.
The change in the schedule occurred prior
to the visit of Mr. Havemeyer. He charac
terized as extraordinary the statement made
by Mr. Blaine in Indiana the other day upon
this subject. The statements, whether made
by the gentleman from Pennsylvania, by
by the managers of the senate bill, or by
Mr. Blaine, were untrue.
Mr. Bayne Consciously or unconsciously,
the Mills bill promotes the sugar trust If
the gentleman disclaims the intentions to
promote the interest of the trust, he should
amend the bill so as to conform to the sen
ate bill.
Mr. E. B. Taylor said that in view of the
extraordinary statement of Mr. Turner, and
the still more extraordinary statement of
Mr. Breckenridge. in regard to a conversa
tion with Mr. Havemeyer, he desired to read
from the record of July 9. He quoted from
a running discussion between the two Breck
enridges, end Mr. McComas, of Maryland,
in which he citsd, Mr. Breckenridge, of Ar
kansas, as stating he had a talk with Mr.
Havemeyer about the sugar refining business,
and also Mr. Breckenridge, of Kentucky, as
refusing to deny that Mr. Havemeyer had
had a hearing before the ways and means
committee. In our part of the country, con
tinued Mr. Taylor, we do not particularly
pride ourselves on being chivalrous, but we
have an appreciation of what honesty and
fair dealings are, and when Mr. Mills tells
Mr. Blaine that the committee on ways and
means had no audience with Mr. Have
meyer, he tells absolute truth in words, but
a (a pause) mistake in fact
Mr. Breckenridge, of Kentucky, charged
that Mr. Taylor had so read from the,record
as to give a false coloring to what he
(Breckenridge) had said, and remarked
that that was a specimen of the fair play
which the gentlemen said was admired in
his part of the country. It was an ontrage
on decency, as well as a violation of truth,
for the gentlemen to say that Mr. Mills,
when he denied the statement of Mr.
Blaine, had been accurate to the letter, but
false in the spirit. It was gratuitous
and without foundation, and it would stick
to the gentleman as all intentionally falsa
statements did during the balance of his
public life.
The discussion between the two gentle
men became heated, and many bitter things
were Baid on both sides, but the dispute
finally ended with mutual explanations and
The senate resolution for final adjourn
ment was then concurred in. The house
then adjourned.
A Prominent Knight Interviewed.
PrrrsBUBa, Pa., October 18. W. T. Lewis,
master workman of the miners national dis
trict assembly, Knights of Labor, is in this
city. Mr. Lewis is one of the Knights
whose name has been prominently men
tioned in connection with the election for
general master workman of the order. In
an interview he said he would noc accept
the office if tendered him.
"If Mr. Powderly desires it he will be re
elected, but I have understood from him he
would not be a candidate."
"Is there any foundation for the charges
that Candidate Barry has made about the
"Yes, there is truth in what Barry says,
but it is not proper to have them published.
They are truths that do not concern the
public By these truths I mean the differ
ences .existing between the officers, the dif
ferent polices that they advocate, and so on.
These are matters, however, that should be
settled by the general assembly. If the or
der of the Knights of Labor cannot reform
itself from within, it does not occur to me
that there can be reform outside or among
those opposed to it It is true that the order
is reduced in membership."
The Peculiar and Unexpected Ending of a
Xong Iregal Contest.
BrsatrsGHAM, Ala., October IS. A re
markable and long legal contest of a will
has just been ended in a most unexpected
manner in Winston county, Ala. Twelve
years ago Charges H. Baker was known as
the richest man in Winston. He owned sev
eral large plantations and a store, from
which he supplied the small farmers for
miles around. He discounted notes, and in
other ways accumultsd a large fortune, a
considerable portion of which was cash.
Baker was then living with his second wife
and two children; also three sons by a for
mer wife.
In the summer of 1578 Baker went to
Memphis Tenn., where he always sold bis
cotton and did his banking. When the yel
lew fever broke out in Memphis he was
caught there and could not return home on
account of the rigid quarantine regulations.
After the fever had been raging several
weeks Baker's name one day appeared on
the list of new case-, and soon afterward
the family heard that he was dead. Then
the widow filed for probate a will, in which
he left her and her children the principal
part of the fortune and made her adminis
tratrix without bond. Baker's sons by bis
first marriage contested the will, and ten
years of bitter litigation followed, the final
result being that the widow and her children
secured the bulk of what property the law
yers had left them.
The three sons immediately secured an
injunction restraining Mrs. Baker from
taking charge of the property, claiming that
they had secured evidence of a later will.
The day after the injunction was served
Charles H. Baker himself, sown very old
man, appeared at the old homestead and
claimed bis fortune. It seems he did not
die of yellow fever, bat after be recovered,
after several weeks, his reason was none.
andthe past was a blank to him. He had
drifted her and there as a common t-anr,
finally taming a p in.' Buenos Ayras; ttoasta
and andertbe care of a Spanish phyrleiaa
recovered bis reason. He than worked hie
way to New Orleans as a common sailor, and
after many hardships reached his home. Ha
confirms the claim of his son that ha had
made a later will, in which fee made eeaal
division of his property among hia wife and
five children.

years of age, who lived with her mother and
sisters at SOI Wabash avenue, committed
suicide with chloroform, late last night

life because she considered herself very
homely, while she was really fairly good
looking and prepossessing. She had been
melancholy and despondent for several
years. She left a note explaining the
suicide, expressing a desire to be cremated,
and asked that her body be fixed up nice,
and requesting her relatives not to mourn
for her. She made an attempt on her life
at Wichita ten years ago.

The Meaaerable Deadlock-Business Await
ing 'the Fifty-first Congress This
Bastion the longest on Hecord
Washington News.
Waszezbotok, D. C, October 19. To
morrow at 1 o'clook the first session of the
Fiftieth oongresa will end, the longest con
tinued session in the history of nearly a
century of congresses, having lasted 321
daa. The longest session previous was 302,
days, ending September 30. Apart from
the protracted but interesting discussion of
the tariff question in both houses, and the
unparalleled dead-lock in the consideration
of the bill to refund the direct tax, the ses
sion has been remarkable in several ways,
put none more than in the enormous num-
'bir of measures introduced in both branches
it congress.
In the senata 3,641 bills and 621 joint reso
lutions were presented, and the house record
ran up to the unequalled figures of 11,59;
bills and 220 joiot resolutions, making the
grand total of 15,585 measures introduced in
one session. In the senate 2,394 measures
were reported back from committees and
plaoed on the calendar, a much larger pro
portion than in the house, where 8,305 meas
ures of the total number of 11,828 introduced
still slumber in the committee rooms.
Among the measures of publio interest
which have become laws are the following:
Belating to permissible marks on mail mat
ter, for the division of the Sioux reserva
tion, for a conference with the south and
central Aaiericrn nations, limiting the hours
of letter carriers, makine Lieutenant Gen
era ISheridan, general of the army, to es
tablish a department ot labor, for an inter
national maritime conference,'requiring the
Pacific Railroad company to maintain tele
graph lines, to prohibit the coming of
Chinese laborers to the United States,
for the establishment of rules in respect to
the St. Marie and other canals, to create
boards of arbitration and to settle contro
versies between common carriers and their
employes, to prevent the return of Chine-e
laborers of this country, aid state homes for
disabled soldiers, and changing the date of
meeting of the elsctorial college.
In the next stage, that is in conference be
tween the two houses are two bills of the
first importance, namely, repeating the pre
emption and timber eclture laws, and pro
viding a general homestead law, .and de
claring a forfeiture of unearned railroad
Pending before the senate is the house
tariff bill and the senate substi'ute. The
senate passed bills to divide Dakota and to
admit the southern half as a state and to aid
common schools, (the Blair Bill) but they
never reached the house for action.
In the senate the same thing can be said
of the following bills which passed the
house, the fisheries retaliation bill, whose
passage was recommended by the president,
authorizing the issue of fractional silver
certigcates; allowing the regulation, by
states, of railware chartered by the United
The following are the most important
bills unacted upon in the senate calender:
For admission of Montanna and Washing
ton Territories, to prohibit the alcoholic
liquor traffic; to declare trusts unlawful.
The following measures of importance
were reported from house committees and
are still on the house calendar: To refund
the direct tax (a vote of which will be taken
early in December next) under an agree
ment by which the memorable dead-Iocs
over this bill was broken. For the payment
of arrears of pensions; requiring the invest
ment of the national bank redemption fund
m circulating notes: the Pacific railroad
funding bill (deba'ed but never reached
the point of action) to include telegraph
companies in the interstate commerce act;
to promote commercial union with Canada;
to incorporate the Nicaragua canal company
for the organization of the territory of Okla
homa, (debated but never finally voted on.;
The following are important senate bills
which slumber in -committee rooms: Re
questing the president to open negotiations
with Great Britain, looking to the annexa
tion of Canada to the United States; for the
free coinage of silver; to repeal the oleo
margarine aot; to provide a naval reserve;
the Hennepin canal bill; to reduce letter
postage to 1 cent; to grant woman suffrage,
and measures proposing radical changes in
the government's financial policy.
The following are original bouse bills,
which likewise never get out of the com
mittee room: To repeal the internal reve
nue law, and the tobacco tax, to prohibit
mailing of newspapers containing lottery
advertisements, to lay a graduated income
tax, for a bounty on sugar, to repeal the
civil service law; for full reciprocity
between the United State; and Can
ada: to restrain judicial proceedings to
be brought against tha Pacific railroads;
to provide more efficient mail service
between the United States and South Amer
ica, to break ap trusts and various measures
proposing changes in our pension, tariffs
and financial laws.
Themoet important private bill of the
session were those pensioning Mrs. Logan
and Mrs. Frank P. Clair, both of which be
came laws, and tho bills to pexuion Mrs.

Paymasters Killed and Bobbed of
$13,000 by Highwaymen.
WiLKEsnABsz, Pa., October 19. A most
daring murder and robbery occurred this
morning, a few miles from here on the
Wilkesbarrejnountain. Paymaster John B.
MoClure, and Stable B033 Hugh Flanigan,
of Philadelphia, and their horse were shot
dead and a sum of money amounting to
12,000 in their possession, was taken by the
murderers. The murdered men were on
their way to pay the workmen onMoFadden's
new branch of the Lehigh Valley railroad,
between Mill creek and Lausann. They
were riding in a bugsy through a strip
of woods to the plaoe where the pay
ments were to be made, when the highway
men stepped out of the woods and crying
"halt," they shot the horse dead and also
both the paymasters. The money was in a
box and was composed of gold and silver,
which they took and fled for parts un
known. The daring aot has caused a great
excitement here, and all efforts are being
made by the police, detectives and citizens
to capture the villians. .
The bodies of J. B. MoClure and Flanigan
were discovered at about a quarter toll
o'clock by Contractor McFadden, of Phila
delphia, who was coming from his office at
Juniper creek about a mue and a half from
the scene of the tragedy. He first Baw the
empty buggy and the horse bleeding from
gun shot wounds. He next discovered
McClure, below the wheels quite dead and
with bullet holes in his head. McFadden
then returned to his oi&ce for his foreman,
and the two went to the scene of the
tragedy. Both armed themselves. On
reaching the lonely spot they found Flani
gan's body lying alongside the road. He
bad been shot in the head. The money,
$11,000 in currency and $1,000 in specie,
which bad baen carried in a leather satchel
was gone, l bis money bad been drawn out
of the Wyoming National bank of this city
atlOCclockims morning, uotn aocuinre
and Flannigan were well armed. It is
thought they were shot from ambush.
Great excitement prevails. One of a par
ty of Hungarians driving furiously through
i he upper part of this city, thi3 afternoon,
fell out of the wagon, and was arrested on
suspicion of being connected with the trag
edy. He gave the name of John Bobbins
and said that he and his companions were
on their way from Plymouth to the railroad
depot All were drunk and it is not likely
'that they are the assassins. Local detectives
and policemen are out, and telegrams con
cerning the assastination have been sent to
all points.

A fecret Organization of Anarchists Bis
covered in Nevada, Mo.
Nevada, Mo., October 19. A paper of
this city created something of a sensation
this afternoon by the publication of theu
fact that for more than a year a secret orga-

in this city. This branch of the order was
instituted with headquarters at Nevada and
general headquarters at Chicago. Therenre

numbers fifty members in Nevada, and
140 members in the county outside the city.
The meeting! are held at private houses and
the number of those attending is curtailed,
in order to prevent the size of the crowd at
tracting attention. The names of those who
have entered the order would be a startling,
surprise. To the outside world the society
is nameless. In inner circles it is known-as
the "En Niot le rirad ov St Lade." The
ritual is written in cipher, and one otths
first paragraphs after ike oath, when trans
lated, is:
"And should I wHlfally break this oath I
will surrender my body to he just ven
geance of my comrades."
