Ar.j. 13. Yesterday was anything but a day of rest for tho tariff loader. Tliey were on tho g-o from earlv corning until late at nlg-ht. It a day of conferences at the White hone, at the private resi dences of the confrrees ani at tha hotels Secret;iry Carlisle was with IVesident Cleve and tSroajlioat the afternoon. The serate and house conferrees made DC effort to get together and they remain as wide apart as when their meeting broke up ou Fnday night. The house coa ferrees were in eoasaltat on inform il ly most of the day, though at no time were they ail together at onco. Chairman Wilsoa sp -nt the day with lleprcsentative LSrt.-ccinrd.fe, of Arkansas, at the N 3i oo.an.lie hotel, and was there called upon by the conferrees. Mr. Wilson viid Dot sjs the president. The meetings of the Louse men brought aoout a thorough understanding- amo.ig them as to lue 1 no of action at tua caucus to-day and the subsequent proaee Jin.js of the senate and -house. They reviewed the situation from every possible standpoint and pre pared themselves foruli emergencies. A one of them taid, It was like going over the Geld of battle and learning the topography of the ground on thj r. ght ieiore th;- great fight. At the outset the houis conferrees satisfied themselves of the pail.a roentary situatioa of the bill. They Lad uone ta.s with the greatest care. Speaker Crisp had been asked to examine with care tha rrrecedents bearing' on Hie case an 1 t was understood he had ia turn consulted Secretary Carlisle, who. a ex-speaker of tae houie of representatives, is regarded as oue of t!u best authorities oa parliamentary proceedure. t'rjra the exam.nat.oa which had been made the cjnferrees were ful.y saii-,??..J the house of rep-rvs-entativea had lue rirht to puss Uo seiiats b it now or at any t me. "1 his determination went much fur ther than has herotofore been under stood. It was that tae hou e, having the uctual phys.eal possession of V.ie tar. II b 1 , could pass it with the sen ate amendment ooiore the Hill reso lution passed or after the Uiil reolu tiio was defeated. That is, so coniidenfc were tlie house conferrees of their right to pass the bill nt any time that tii.-y reg-arded tiieir rights as entirely unilected by unyt i.ng the senate cou-d .io Wit.i tue Hill requisition cr with any other resolution. They recognized there w.-re some precedents agiinst this pos t.on, but they regarded the overwhelm ng force of authority with thein and they therefore accepted it us settled tliat the house had Buprema autuority over tae bill without refer ence to what thesenKte might do. The hou-.e conferrees did not be lieve it was necessary or prudent for the house caucus to piss a reoiution to at once accept the senate bill. They realize the situatioa is so critical that the question of accepting the senate bill inight come b.-fore tue caucus anJ develop such overwhelming and re-6ifttle-s s-.renjth that it would be use less to oppo.e it. Thoy woi-j prepared for this eaierg jucy and wore rea.ly to accept it if it came. They would not, huwcer, counsel it tuetaselves, and. if it came, it would have W be the out growth, of this spontaneous sentiment in the caucus. Meantime the senate is quiescent and is disposed to remain in inactivity until the hoae Khali have had an op prtun ty to e.fpres 'tself upon tue situation. There is undoubtedly a rtvs re on the pirt cf a larj major ity of the Democrat c senators, prac tically all of them, unless i( be the Louisiana senators, t j have tha house take possession of i.u-4 bill. Mhia is due to tha general belief In the senate that the house will ac cept the senate amenlments and that the bill will thus become a law, and to the fear if the fci'l should a train g-o to the senate it would be loug- de layed, whi e on the other h:.n I it ia believed if the houe snouid agree to the senate amendments the senate would acquiese in this action uul waive thi fj-rl.ntcal question wh.ch rmtrbt be raised over the disposition of tho bilL UOrtS OF AD.IOLRXJIEXX. Opinion T Kiprcnel the 1s t TTecti Wabuinstox, Aug-. g-Cneral about the present w.ll be the Tlit Thh Will Ec 1. The hope 5s seaate that the last week of the session. This is baed upoa the be lief that the tariff bid will be disposed of ia some way early in the week and with the tariff oat of the way final adjou-nment can be brouj-Lt about at almost any time. None of the appropriation bilis with the ex ception of tha sundry civil and the general deCciensy are yet to bj acted op)Q to any extent by either bouse and these two are in such advanced stae in conference that a day cf zealous work would probably su Ji.ce to put thani both in thip" to be teat to the prjs id -nt. The Chinese treaty is the on'y other business that would hold con gress for a dav, and this is also in condition to be taken up and voted upon at to-day's session. Whin the senate aljourneci. on Friday, after giving- the greater pirt of the day to the treaty, thcru was an under. tand-Inp- th:it the senate would eo into ex ecutive session on MotKlay immedi ately after, the realms of the Journal to take tha vote upoa the treaty. It 1! I; be done without further debate. The order of business for to-day, presumably after tha treaty shall have been passed upon, will be Sena tor Chan ller's resolution for the in vestigation of the Alabama elections. After that all is uncertain and there Is no prearranged program for the en tire week. Almost everything will depend upon the action Of the house on the-tariSf bill, bnt whatever that action may be it can be counted ou as qu.te certain the two remaining- ap propriation bills will receive final at tention some time during1 the week. The conference report on the sun dry civil bill has already been largely disposed of, and it is not probable much more time will be spent upon it. The conference cram'ttse on the gen eral deficiency bill bad been in session all day. notwithstanding it was Sun day, and it was bjlievel it woil 1 be in shape for eariy presentation to both houses. If, therefore, the houso short Id de cide to accept the senate amendments to the tariff bill, the senate could be prepared to suspand proceei'n rs oa a'most any day after Tuesday. If tho house should deciJo on the opposite course there is no saving- what misrht happen in the senate. The tarilf is en-rossin the attention of the houe, an I it has so far no prog-ram whetaver for the week. INDIAN IP'()IRIATIOXS. Th Amount for 1895 largely Exceeds 1 hat of tlio I'revlou Year.

Ucth engineers applied the air brakes and reversed their eng-ines, which action alone was the cause of saving many lives. As snon as the passengers and thoso of the train crew not hurt recovered from the shock they proceeded to rescue the unfortunate victims. En gineer Humphreys of No. 4 was found nt his post with one of his limbs cut off nt thd thig-h and his head almost split in two. He died in a few min utes. Express Messeng-er Capling-er was instantly kilied. K. E. Derrick, the express messen ger and bagg-ajemun of No. 5, had a very narrow escape, and his injuries may yet prove fatal. The momentum forced him throug-h the side of the car and landed him on the embnnit xuci.t about fifty feet aw. ly. His faca was mashed to a jelley and his body terribly cut and bruised. Mhere was but one physician on the train. He was kept busy until train No. 5 was run back to Ilurdland for assistance. None of the passengers on No. 4 were inj'jred.

The women have certain duties to perform, as among other races, but the men do not disdain to help them on occasion, any more than does a white man of good disposition. During- the whols time that I was among- them I nev.-r saw a sirg-le family qcarrel, and the children were rarely punished. I re member one incident which illus trated this characteristic which amused me not a little. One day the wife of one of the chiefs came to me and asked to borrow a look-ing'-S'a-s.s. I g-ave it to her and then watche 1 to see what she would do. About a mile away 200 or 303 mounted Indians were congregated, watching- a Uors2 race. The squaw took the mirror, stood in front of the tent, and reflected a beam of &unlight from the glass along the ground in line with the group of Indians. In a moment or two a solitary horseman left the band and came galloping over the prairio toward his lent. It was tho husband of the squaw and ehe had brought him to her side by means of this peculiar signal. The chief spoke a few words to his wife and then ap proached to where I was standing with a broad grin on I119 face. I asked him what brought him home so Boon and he replied that his wife, knowing that he had quite a little money with him, had called him home for fear that he raig-ht be tempted to g-amble it away. Instead of speaking- crossly to her for interfering- with him. he chuckled over her prudence, although he said he might have won a lot of money if he had remained." A JUVENILE CR AN DM OTHER. Ellen Terry's Light- Heartod Frisklncs ; rat Her tVorlc. Some of tho-;e who have seen Miss Ellen Terry on the stag-e have met j her in private life. She is the same j gracious, kind-hearted, vivacious lady, ; with a touch of exuberant youthful I ness. which will not. I imagine, de ! sert her when 6he is old and gray, i says an English writer. With the ex ception of the princess of Wales, Ellen j Terry is the most juvenile grand j mother ever beheld. Subject to at : tacks of neuralgia, she defies thom. as all else, with her g-aiety, her in vincible spirit. At rehearsal she is all buoyancy. Even to-day she cannot help playing tricks and diverting the attention of her brother and sister actors with her fun and pranks. Mr. Terriss, as well as Mr. Irving, can givo evidence of tnis, and are often sorely tried to keep their countenance. For the rest. Miss Terry is generosity its very self, and has the larg-e, sympathetic nature which her personality and stylo of acting- suggest. Emperor William's Piety. Emperor William tt First, at the close of the French ""r, dictated to his private secrett-.j- J address which he intended to deliver to tbe German army. The final sentenco ran thus; liut do not forget that we all must be grateful toward Providence: for Providence has willed that we should be the instrument destined to accom plish what are such great events in the history of the world." The secre tary having- his own ideas, as even secretaries of emperors an 1 kin' s can not kelp having-, wrote "Providence has permitted." "Stop." sa'd the aged emperor; "do you imagine that I could have supported the burden of this war if I had not entertained the firm con vict'ou that Providence willed it? Write the word as I dictated it." The Golden Klsie. Edward IV.. to raise m-n?y for a war with France, sat himself sun iry hours every day to receive contribu tions from his subjects, who sub scribed pretty liberally in conse quence of their animosity to the enemv. Among- others, a rich yet nlggarlly old widow, brought S100, a large sum in those days, to him. This so highly pleased the king, "that he not only returned her thanks," but to'd her: "For her kindness that she should kis a king," which beinj dona, the woman pulled out another ba-z saying: "Udsbo iikins, if kings sell their kisses so che:;p, g re me 'totber touch of the lips, and here is another S100 for you:" The king smiled nt this, took ht-r at her word, Cud thought his kisses well sold. A New Sleep Theory. A foreign se'entist, whom tho ac count says is "a man of international reputation." offers a brand n -w the ory of the cause of sleep. He believes the fatigue of the nervous system which leads to this condition of t!u body to be due to an increase of tha water-holding power, of the nerve cells. This being the case, the greater the ability of the ce'ls to hold water, the less the nervous irritability of the individual. He further says that the sleeping individual is easily awakened i as soon as the major portion of the ! water has been eliminated by the "sleep process." How to Control a Sneeze.

The "why" of this ii that I by so doing we deaden tbe impression j made on a certa'n branch of the "fifth i nerve," sneezing- being a reflx action I excited by some slight impression I made upon that nerve.
