Washing ton-, Aug. 13. An hour be
fore lu o'clock, the time set for the house
caucus, memlers began to arrive at the
capitol, and hasty consultations were
held on tho course to be pursued,
speaker Crisp was joined in his private
citlice by Chairman AVilsou and Repre
sentatives Turner, Mcilillin and Mont
gomery, maKiUg the tuil membership of
the houe democratic conference cum
uiittee. Representative Breckinridge, of Ar
kansas, an advisory member of the con
ference, w as aino present. It was a final
consultation uu the line of action to be
presumed by the nouse leaders to the
caucus. The meeting lasted until it was
time for the caucus to convene.
in the mean time there was a scene of
animation on the lioor of the house,
liepreseutativea Tracey, Strauss, Warner
and others passed umoug thir associates
ana Biiheued up the sentiment of loyalty
to the conferrtjes. it was apparently up

leeibig among the rank and tile of mem
bers seemed to be settlug in strongly in
favor of accaptiu the - euate bill svtth
out lurlher delay.
At 10 o'clock Speaker Crisp and all the
conferrees filed out of the speaker's of
fice and took seats iu a body in the for
ward part of the Democratic side.
There was an ominotu silence as thoy
cam: in. At that time loo Democratic
members were on the lioor. As Mr.
Wilson pass-ad through the corridor to
the house, h i was asked as to the result
ot the coiiteicnce iu the speaker's room,
but answ ered: "I cannot make it known
now."
speaker Crisp called the house to
order promt tly and the call for the meet
ing was reul The roll call which fol
lowed took same time- and members
shifted uneasily for the decisive action.

borne of tie members left their seats
aud crowded about him intently listen
ing to eveiy word. it is seldom that
bucii interest is shown at a caucus. Mr.
Wilson beguu with the rocital of the dif
llouities tua; have been encountered. lie
went over t-acii stage of the bill with
much detail, lie said that each step had
been pursued with an ardent desire to
support with honor the desires of the
house to resist what was regarded as tue
unreasonable demands of the senate.
Mr. Wilsoa did not coniine himself to
g eterahzati ja. He took up the contested
schedules, particularly sugar, coal and
iron ore, aui reviewed the differences in
conference ou these items. He took up
each proposition on sugar and spoke of
the vast pre his to the sugar trust which
would result from many of these propo
sitions, lie did not imlulge in the sharp
crUicism that was expected ou the mo
tives of the senate conierrees.
While M:-. Wilson was 6peaking the
word was passed around to members
that the conference in the speaker's
room had resulted iu a decisive action
and that euker Crisp himself would
move that tho house would recede and
accept the senate bill. At first the in
formation was so startling that it was
doubted, but as membar after member
heard it and madj inquiry the opinion
became geaeral among tue best inform
ed me-u in iha house that the report was
correct although it could not be positive
ly veriiied by Speaker Crisp,
ng,r Trust CoufiJenca In the Scnatt.
Mr. Wilsju spoke of the light made by
the house conierrees for a specific duty
ousugar.cn tho ground that under an
ad valorem system it would be impossi
ble to ted on account of the invoice
methods, the exact advantage that would
accrue to the sugar trust. He made the
remarkable statement that he had
been credibly informed and be
lieved tLat the sugar trust had
anticipated the enactment of the senate
sugar schedule, purchased $li'.i.OOJ,OuO
worth of riw sugar. If this was true, he
Baid, the profits accruing to the trust
from this investment in advance of the
enactment of the senate schedule would
be at least $40U,0ul).
Mr. Wiijon also pointed out at length
the embarrassment attending the efforta
to adjust the coal andiron schedules.
"The great battle," said Mr. Wilson,
warming jp, -is between the American
people an I the sugar trust. It is a bat
tie in which the trust has taken the peo
ple by the throat and it will never end
until we throw off the grip."
i uere was an euthnsiastic applause at
this.'
proceeded to state that the
Louse conferree3 had been willing to
concede almost anything except these
vital items of sugar, iron and coal, th;it
the senate conferred had alio seemed
willing to concede much and held much
the name views, but whs apparently
dominated by the knowledge that if they
conceded what the representatives were
willing- to concede, the bill could not
pass and the agreement would be useless.
Cliaifinm Wilson (.loans.
Mr. Wilson closed at 11:U3 o'clock,
having tailed just au hour. It was un
derstood however, that Mr. Wilson had
not yielded the floor permanently, but
would resume later afier his conference
associates, .Messrs. Montgumory, McMil
lin and turner, had corroborated hia
statements as to dates.
Mr. Montgomery tnea took the floor
and substantiated what Mr. Wilson had
said as to the details of the conference.
Speaker Crisp followed Mr. Mont
gomery, lie spoke with much spirit and
earnestness and soon the caucus was in
a tumult of enthusiasm, rouud after
round of applause greeting Lis remarks.
He spoke of thecrilical condition and of
the apparent need to accept the senate
bill, aud then if
need Lo, to introduce
tsenarate biils for
free suyar, free iron
and free coal.'
Mr. Crisp" followed iu the line of Mr.
Wilson, -saying that it was either the
'"senate bill or nothing." He said that
as long as there was a desperate chance
oT securing concessions the house de
manded, he was in favor of stan ling out,
but he was now satisfied that the
time had come when further resistance by
the house was useless. He closed his
remarks by offering a resolution instruct
ing the house conierrees to recede
A great burst of applause greeted the
reading of the resolution, but half a
dozen irate Democrats were on their
fe?t, demanding recognition, prominent
among them being Bourse Cockran, of
New York.
Owing to the lateness of the hour the
rule was adopted limiting further
speeches to live minutes. Then Mr.
Cockran delivered a vigorous and elo
quent speech against surrendering to the
senate. "Better no tarilf legislation than
the senate bill," he said.
Speaker Crisp asserted that it was the
senate bill, or no tarilf legislation. He
then offered a resolution that the house
conferrees recede from the disagreement
to the senate amendments, and instruct
the ways and means committee to bring
in separate free sugar, free iron and free
coal bills.
Cockran Hold Ou'.
Mr. Cockraa declared that there was
no necessity for the house to surrender
as yet, aud challenged Chairman Wil
son's statement, that four Democratic
votes in the senate would be lost to the
bill if the tight proceeded. He demanded
the names of the four senators, but Wil
son refused to give them.
The previous question vva3 demanded
ou the Crisp resolution ar.d ordered by a
vote of, 112 tc 21. Among those who
voted against tho previous que turn were
the LiOU.siana meuibeis, Cockranof Xc v
York and others. Thirteen minutes was
then given to the opponents of the reso
lution to state taeir position.
Mr. McMiilin followed in v'goroua
style. He repudiated the statement
made by Mr. Cockran tnat the senate
bill was worse than the McKimey law.
Mr. Robertson, of Louisiana, objected
to the resolution on the free sugar pro
visions and generally protested against
the treatment of Louisiana.
As the hoiir of li o'clock approached,
when the house was b meet, the cry of
"vote," "voto," went up from the impa
tient members.
Mr. Robertson, of Louisiana, continued
! to urge tiiat it would be bud faith to cut
off the Louisiana planters from the boun
ty on this year's crop, on wliica they had
recently reckoned when they put it in.
During the lifteen minutes debate,
Chairman Wilson roso and pleaded with
the caucus not to lake action today. He
said that whatever was tho mini of the
lioL e, there was no necessity for im
mediate and harried action.
Tlie IIousb Kecfftles.
Mr. McMiilin of the ways aud means
committee also made a speech. He de
clared in favor of the Crisp resolution,
saying that the senate bill was much
better than the McKinley law.
Resolution to recede was adopted 130
to XI. A division of the Crisp resolution
was demanded so as to have a separate
vote ou the tirst part to recede from dis
agreement to senate amendments and
the provision fur separate bills. Tue
first part of the resolution was adopted
by a rising vote, 10 to 21, and the second
part without division.
Among those who voted against the
resolution were the Louisiana members,
Warner of New Yorii, Straus and Tracey
of New York, Tarsuey of Missouri,
Cockraa of New Yori, Coveat of New
York, Dunphy of New Yorii, Cooper of
Indiana, Johnson of Ohio aud Kilgure of
Texas. The .Maryland delegation, Ray
nor, McKaigh, Rusk and lalbot, Breek
iuridge of Arkansas, all of the ways and
means committee, W illiam of Mississippi,
also voted against tho re-olution.
Most of those wao voted against the
first part of the resolution voted for the
second part.
1 he resolution of Speaker Crisp as
adopted is as follows :
Resolved, that it is tho sense of this
caucus that the order heretofore made
requiring a conference with the senate
on the disagreeing votes of the two
houses on 11. li. 4S1, be rescinded. That
the conference heretofore appointed by
the house be discharged lrom further
duty in that behalf and that the house
recede from its disagreement to the
senate amendments to said bill aud
agree to tho same.
Resolved, further, That the house shall
at once proceed to the consideration of
separata bills, placi ag the following ar
ticles on the free list. v,z. : sugar, in all
its forms; iron ore, coal and barbed wire.
The committee ou rules is requested
to report an order providing tor the
prompt consideration of such motion and
bills.
This was adopted by an overwhelming
vote, the nays beinj idmoet insignificant.
Represantative Tucker of Virginia,
then offered a resolution thanking and
commending the house conferees for
their loyal service. This was adopted
with a shout of approval and the caucus
adjourned.
Will Eaih the Bill Tlirongli.
It is the intention of the Democratic
managers of the hcuse to finish up every
, thin today. Tha committee on rales
will present a special order to carry out
the mandate of the caucus The
intention is to pass the tariff
bill, and then will follow the other bills
named in the caucus resolution. These
bills have all been prepared, and though
not reported from the ways and means
committee are in regular order. These
preliminaries can be' dispensed with un
der a special order from the committee
on rules.
Hoih Rushing: the Hill.
When the house met five minutes after
the Democratic caucus adjourned today,
there were more members on the fljnr
than at any time since the tariff bill was
passed.
The greatest confusion existed on the
floor. .Members were standing about in
excited groups discussing the situation,
the general understanding being that the
resolutions to agree on the senate amend
ments and probably to consider the bill
for free coal, iron, sugar and barbed
wire would be brought in this afternoon.
At 2:23 ix. m. Mr. Catching was rec
ognised aud presented tho report of the
committee on rules providing for the
passage of the tariff bill.
Mr. lieed made a parliamentary ob
jection to the procedure, claiming the
tariff bill was not before the house aud
indicated the Republican intention to
fight the bill and report iu every proper
way.
Crisp held that the resolution was in
order and before the house.
'i lie previous question was ordered
without division.
The house is now voting on the rules
committee resolution, and as its passage
is assured, the vote on the passage of the
senate tariff bill should occur about 6
o'clock this afternoon.
Later The resolution was adopted,
by a vote 176 to 97.

CHAIRMAN WILSON'S VIEWS.
Tile Action of the 11 oasu was
the Rest
thut Could He Done.
Washington, Aug. 13. Chairman
Wilson, author of the Wilson bill, pre
pared for the Associated Press at the
close of the caucus today a statement of
his views on the tariff situation. The
statement is in Mr. Wilson's handwriting
and gives distinctly his piosition on ths
action of the house in accepting the tar
iff bill. It is as follows:
T cannot see where we failed to do
anything we could do to bring about a
better result. When I have done the
best, according to my capacity and
judgment, I must fall back on tho co;v
sci uisness of duty done. The difficulty
which the country must recognize is
that on the tarilf question we did not
have a democratic senate and whatever
has been gained has been wrested from
a protective body.
'T have been willing to take any, even
the most desperate cha ices, Umt gave
the least hope of success, in getting rid
of tho most objectionable ftenate amend
ments, aud would have fought to the
fourth of March if I had any ground to
stand on and any fol'.owiug to sustain me.
"We have been confronted by a senate
with closed ranks, while we have had
divisions from the beginning that have
been fermented from the senate, the
growing impatience of the members to
get back to their districts with anything
that might be called a tariff reduction
bill, has made them unwilling tost .y un
less promise could be giveu of assured,
or probable victory. We could not hon
estly give such promise and a man can
not continue a battle with his army ready
and eager to break away."
WHAT THE DILL PROVIDES,
Duties on the Variuus Articles as Pro
vided by the iseuale Rill.
Washington, Aug. 13. The senate
bill, whicit the caucus actiou today

Washington, Aug. 13. There ia good
authority for the statement that the pres

ate tariff bill, but will let it become a
law without his signature uuder the ten
days provision of the constitution.

SANTA FE MATTERS.
It Will Cost $1,GOO,000 to Reorganize the
Sant Fa Kotil.
New York, Aug. 13. President Rein
hart of the Santa Fe will prepare anoth
er refutation of the charges made by
Stephen Little, the expert accountant,
who examined the books. Mr. Reiuhart's
resignation will not take effect until
September 1st next. At a meeting of
the directors his successor was talked of.
Among those most prominently men
tioned are A. A. Robinson, formerly tren
eral manager of the Santa i'e aud at
present president of the Mexican Cen
tral railway; Gen. John McNulta, form
erly receiver of the Toledo, St. Louis &
Kansas City and the Wabash railroads,
in which position he has earned an ex
cellent reputation as a successful rail
road mauager; W. B. Strong, formerly
president of the Atchison.
lo reorganize railroads is a profitable
business. Iu the case of the Atchison
the reorganization committee is to re
ceive $l,OO0,U00 for expenses. . The un
derwriting syndicate plans to assume the
$12 a share assessment, amounting to
$12,000,000, for 5 percent., netting $o00,
00U. Thus the cost of starting the debt
burdened Atchison under the present
plan will be $1,600,000 for preliminary
expenses alone.
BIGGEST IN THE WORLD.
Tbe Great Santa Fe liailvrajr System and
Its Eaormous Debt.
The Santa Fe system is the biggest in
the world, having some 9,344 miles of
railroad. It has a capitalization of 346
millions dollars. No other railway has
half as much. The Santa Fa was com
paratively a small system in 18j5, having
only 2,3lJ3 miles.
In the year 1885 the Santa Fe absorbed
certain Kansas roads and began to build
branches in the state at an enormous
rate, the result several years later being
that Kansas had the greasiest mileage of
any state in the union, and the Santa Fe's
most vulnerable point, when crops were
Lad, was right here. At the close of
1885 the capitalization of the Santa Fe
stock and funded debt was about 100
million dollars.
In 1886, before the Atlantic & Pacific
was completed to Mojave, Cab, the
Santa Fe began another ambitious un
dertaking, the construction of a line
from Kansas City into Chicago. The
company considered that it would never
be a really great trunk line uutil it had
an independent entrance to Chicago. So
it acquired the Chicago & St. Louis rail
road and other small links, and before
the end of the following year its ambi
tions were realized in the Chicago,
Santa Fe fe California railroad which is
453 mile3 long. To build this extension
the Chicago, Santa Fe & California com
pany issued about $15,500,000 in 5 per
cent bonds, which probably covered the
cosL They were guaranteed by the
Santa Fe, the latter receiving the stock
free. Besides this outlay the Santa Fe,
through au independent company, paid
out $3,500,000 for new terminals iu Chi
cago. The construction account of the Santa
Fe for new roads for the year 187 was
heavy, being $40,300,000, of which the
principal items are as follows:

In the year 1888 the construction ac
count for new roads and real estate
amounted to twelve million dollars. After
that year the banta Fe did not do any
very exienaive building, but it absorbed
several important systems, among them
being the tit. Louis &. ban Francisco and
Colorado Midland. The entire common
and preferred stock of the St. Louis fc
San Francisco, with a small exception,
was purchased by the Santa Fe in May,
1800, the Atchison' issuing for that pur
pose twenty-three million dollars in new
stock.
The reorganization of tbe Santa Fe
system in that year, which became em
barrassed and threatened a receivership,
provided for the absorption of the San
Francisco road, which was the only
course open to the Santa Fe.
Under the reorganization a consolidat
ed general mortgage for 150 million dol
lars, bearing 4 per cent was provided
for; also 80 million dollars, 5 per cent in
come bonis. Of the general fours 131
million dollars were reserved to retire
prior issue.
The entire capital stock of the Colora
do Midland, 8 million dollars, was pur
chased iu Cctober, 1890.
The stock and bonds of all the roads in
the Santa Fe system except those of the
Colorado Midland and St. Louis and San
Francisco roads are deposited in trust
under the Santa Fe's blanket mortgage,
and hence the system is practically one
line, although there are a great marly
different corporations.
WHAT DID THEY MEAN i
Kditor Rooy Taken to Task For Follow
1 li j Out Instructions.
Lewis Iioby, editor of the Kansas En
deavorer, the organ of the Kansas Chris
tian Endeavor union, i3 bringing down
upon hid head the wrath of some of the
p;eople who are afraid of the political in
fluence of the paper.
In the last issue of the Endeavorer at
tention was called to the resolution adopt
ed by the C E. state convention in refer
ence to prohibition.
The resolution concluded as follows:
"As the suppression of the saloon sys
tem is the supreme issue in our state, we
demand the enforcement of existing laws
on this subject; and hereby absolve our
selves from allegiance to any political
party tht abandons prohibition in Kan
sas, even if that abandonment be the
cowardice of silence."
Editor Uoby called attention to the fact
that the Prohibition party is the only
party that has not come under the ban of
that resolution, and now some of the Re
publican and Populist Endeavor mem
bers want Mr. Roby "called off" when he
is simply carrying out the instructions of
the C. E. state convention.

HEAVY BAIIK FAILURE
The Wichita National
Closes Its Doors.
Bank
Failure Due to Derogatory
Statements
MADE ABOUT THE BANK
The Bank Was Capitalized at
$300,000.
Its Failure Causes Much Excite
ment at Wichita.
Wichita, Kan., Aug. 13. The Wichita
National bank, the oldest banking insti
tution in the southwest, went into the
hands of the comptroller of the curroncy
this morning. Their last report, made in
Julj-, showed only $20,000 in specie on
hand. It is said the bank holds consider
able bad paper. County commissioners
have $14,000 in tho bank.
The deposits amounted to about $200,
000. 1 he capital stock and surplus ag
gregates $300,000. President M. W.
Levy is in Kansas City, having gone
there last night to see if arrangements
could be made to tide over the trouble.
The closed doors this morning told the
story of his failure to secure help.
Cashier Walker said: "Irresponsible
people have been attacking the stability
of the institution for three weeks and
there has been a constant and heavy
drain on us during that time.
"The county commissioners among oth
ers listened to the stories afloat and
checked out $46,000 without giving us
any notice. I believe the suspension is
only temporary and even if tho bank is
closed for good, we can pay all our debts
if we collect thirty-live cents on the dol
lar of what is duo us."
The excitemeut about town is very
great but it is believed that all of the
other banks are prepared to protect
themselves.

"Mister," said the greasy wayfarer
at the back door, plaintively, "can't

"My friend," replied the man of tho

"I don't s'pose you know what, it is

"No."
"The trouble with me," said the
pilgrim, wiping his perspiring brow
with the remains of what had once
been a handkerchief, "is nerves. "I

"I have told you, my friend," inter

with you, but I am not able to do any
thing to help you, and I certainly
don't know of any light work you

Ttn for I--IUinsr Teeth.
A dental specialist has made a dis
covery that is likely to have a decided
inlluence upon the future of tlentistry.
The practitioner declares that in or
dinary cases tin is quite equal to gold
for filling teeth. Chemically pure tin
is run into a. mold of proper shape,
and when cold is cut by a lathe into
very thin shavings. These can be
used in the same way as gold. They
are said to be more adaptable and co
hesive than gold, and while not as
durable will ansWer every purpose.
It is a well-understood fact that fill
ings last but a few years. The tooth
decays or breaks away around the
metal, which must be taken out and
the cavity re pre pared.
