A BIG FIGHT THIS WEEK.
HAKD-TO-UASD STRUGGLE OVER THE
'Democratic Loaders In Conference Liiht
Night Agreed to Use All XjORlllmnto
Cleans in Defeat the Elections Mill and
tho Republican "Cloture" Scheme.
Thu real fight over tbo Forco bill will begin
iu tbo Scnato this wt, probably on Tuesday.
Tho Republicans huvo now wasted onc-tblrd Of
tbo session trying to do something with the ob
noxious measure, while It is probable n consid
erable majority of tbcui heartily wish itwnain
Hades. But iu an evil moment they took tho
thing up, not knowing It was loaded with
a peculiar quality of electricity, and now they
can't let go. So thoy are hanging on to it and
trying to look dignified aud even happy, but
tho attempt is a mlserablo failure. Most of tho
Western Republicans have no use for tbo bill at
all, and tbo only use a groat many of tho East
ern Republicans have for it Is to block tho way
of free-coinage legislation. This it has effect
ually done so far, and probably will coutiuuo to
do to the end of the session, unless the silver
Senators do something more than talk against it.
The-present programme of tho Republicans
seems to be to attempt tp force tho passage of tho
bill by keeping tho ScnateMn continuous session
day and night. This they will do in tho hope
of physically exhausting the Democrats. The
latter have been expecting some such move as
this for some time, and have prepared tbern
solves accordingly. They believe thoy can
stand as much of the all-day-aud-all-night
session racket as tho Hour
crowd can, and are not at all scared at the
jirospect. It is possible the Republican plans
may be changed at tho caucus to bo held to
morrow, but"it is believed the continuous-sessions
scheme will have to bo resorted to sooner
or later. Then if tho Republicans find, tho
Democrats can beat them at the gnmo of en
durance the cloture rulo will be brought up
and an attempt made to pass it, so that with
tho help of this gag law tho Force bill may bo
forced to a vote.
All this, of course, is on tho assumption that
tho free-coinage men can be kept from making
converts enough among tho Republicans to
compel tbo laying aside of tho Force bill with
out further discussion and the taking up of
The Democrats in tbo Senate and House are
perfecting all their plans for the final struggle
against the Force bill. The leaders in both
Houses metlast niaht at the resldonco of Sen
.ator Gorman and conferred on the situation.
The feeling among those present at tho meeting
was one of confidence that iu one way or
another they could prevent the bill from be
coming a law. A number of Sonators said they
would be ready with fresh speeches if night
sessions were held, so that mere would be no.
collapse in tho debate on tho Democratic side.
Most " of the Democratic Senators havo
.already spoken briefly or "at length in the bill,
but all of them are relied on to submit a few
more remarks if It Is necessary. No details of
tho plans decided on by tho Democrats last
night could be obtained directly from thoso
who were at tho confereuco, but it can bo
stated confidently that no material change of
programme will bo made, at least In tho Senate.
The debate will be continued doggedly and
every move of the Republicans will bo fought
with every means at command.
As to tho part tho House Democrats will bo
-called on to take in tho fight there are some
mysterious and highly significant whispers. It
is intimated thatlf the Senate Republicans push
things to extremes a plan of action may be
pursued at tho House end of tho Capitol which
will, to mako it mild, put an entirely now
aspect on tho wholo situation, and forco tho
Republicans to stop and consider If It Isn't just
as well to drop tbo bill just where it is. Tho
two parties will bo in fighting trim by Tuesday,
at tho latest, and then there will bo fun.
Dissatisfied Miners on Strike.
Huntington, Pa., Jan. 3. The miners In tho
Broad Top and Ea6t Broad Top bituminous coal
fields went on strike yesterday. This step was tho
direct result of tho advanced position assumed
In tho early part of tho week by the Cloarflold
miners and affects about three thousand men.
These dissatisfied miners are said to bo but
poorly equipped to enduro an extended strike
at this time, as they havo been only working
about half timo for several months. An indi
rect uause of tbo strike was tho attitude as
sumed by tho leading firm operating in that
district in reducing their output aud giving, It
is alleged, warniug to tho coal-carrying compa
nies to Jay in a sufficient supply for motive
purposes. Tho present attitudo of tho miners
in demanding that thoy be paid by tho gross
instead of not ton is indicative of a stubborn
and protracted fight,

But n Series of Profuse Apologies Atono
for Certain Rudeness.
Constantinople, Jan. 3. An international
incident which has caiiBed some ridicule and
considerable Indignation occurred in these
waters during tho past day or so. A Japanese
iron-clad fricato, having on board tho survlvois
of tho Ertogroul, tho Turkish irou-clad which
foundered in tho China seas on September 18
during a typhoon, arrived off tho forts and
batteries guarding tho entrance of tho Dar
danelles. When tho Japanese war vctscl's
name and mission wore communicated to Iho
Turkish officers at the etitrance of the straits
these officials claimed that they had no author
ity to admit of the irou-clad 's passage through
tho Dardanelles. Tho Turks also suggested
that the survivors of the Ertogroul disaster
should bo landed from tho Japanese vessel into
tho boats of the Turkish officials, thereby Inti
mating that, while obliged for tho favor done to
Turkey in bringing this unfortunate Turkish
sailors" bank 'to their native land, the sooner the
Japanese war vessel returned to Japan the
better pleased would tho Turkish officers bo.
This treatment so enraged tbo comrnauder of
tho Japanese frigate that be ordered his anchor
hove up and soon afterward beaded his vessel
seawaid auutn, firmly resolved to take the res
cued Turks back to thu place ho had brought
While thu Japanese officers had beeu parley
ing with the Turks the latter, it seems, bad
been vigorously working thu wires communi
cating between tho forts at thu Dardanelles
and the authorities at Constantinople. Then
there was a furious tow ho' ween tbo palace
authorities aud the military authoiities, an
other between the palace authorities and the
naval authorities, and another still between nil
the three groups of authorities combined.
When tho air again became clear about Con
stantinople and tbo Dardanelles, steam was
hurriedly trot up upon the fastest vessel
available at Constantinople the inipeiinl
yacht. That vessel, after crowding on
all tho steam she could with safety carry,
in nn aged to overtake the Japanese frigate off
tho porfof Smyrna, where she was expecting to
coal. Tho Turkish imperial yacht ran along
side the Japanese iron-clad, ami the Turks be
gan a scries of profuse apologies for tbo rude
ness of the Turkish officers on duty at tho en
trance to the Dardanelles, explaining that the
international regulations forbid any foreign
iron-clad from entering the straits, and sug
gesting all sorts of way's in which tho matter
could bo settled. The Japanese commander
finally accepted the apologies tendered him,
transferred tho survivors of tho Ertogroul to
the imperial yacht, and everybody felt moro
Defalcation of Suvlng Bank Treasurer
Willis Amounttt to llint Sum,
Stogkrhidge, Mass , Jan. 3. Charles Wil
lis, for fifteen years treasurer of theStockbridco
Savings Bank, is a defaulter to tho extent of
$25,000 or more. Tho exact amount is not
known, but defalcations amounting to $23,300
havo been brought to light so far. Stealing has
been' carried on with regularity for twelve or
thirteen years, small amounts being taken at a
time. When a depositor paid In $500, for In

As Willis was the only man regularly on duty
In tbo bank bo was ablo to pay each retiring

liably reported that the hostile Indtuus have
6eut out runnels to all Indian camps uotlfj lug
them of the battle and calling upon them for
aid. One of tho runners has made his appear
ance among the Indians up Bad River, and has
been using every means to incite them into

cials have beon notified, and aro no doubt on
tho lookout for the rascals. Theprincipal Indian
trader at Fort Pierre, Mr. Ketchuui, says ho has
sold moro rod paint to the Indians within tho
last few days than for years. Indians are en
gaged in carrying largo quantities of supplies
between here and Fort Bennett. Col. Tassin

RESCUING PARTY ATTACKED.
Lincoln, Neb., Jan. 3. Tho party sent out
to bring in tho dead bodies found 10S lying on
the field, as well as eight wounded, who had
survived the terrible cold for three days without
shelter and were still alive on the ground. An
attempt was made to remove the dead
and wounded to Pine Ridge Agency, but before
tbo task was complete the rescuing party was
attached by a moving band of hostiles and
driven away. Among tho rescued was a little
babe less than a year old, alive, but with slight
chances of surviving. The soldiers In the hos
pital aro doing nicely, physiciaus predicting
tho recovery of all.
Omaha, Neb., Jan. 3. Tho Bee has the fol
lowing from its staff correspondent at Pine
Ridge Agency, S. D.: "Twenty-ono of the
wounded Boldiers, threo officers, and eighteen
men, will bo taken to Fort Riley, Kan., to-morrow
n'ght by special train. There have beeu no
now developments to-day regarding the
hostiles except that old Tied Cloud tried to slip
away from them and return to the agoncy.
Whon the fact was discovered by tho hostiles
they shot all of his ponies, numbeiing
about fifteen, placed a guard over tho
old chief, and procoeded to move
several miles from here. This last move places
their main camp within but a few miles from
the Bad Lands, but tho warriors, according to
the reports of scouts, keep circling within ten or
a .dozen miles of hero all the time. It is
to bo considered as among tho possibilities
that the party that went out this morning to
bury tho dead Indians at Wounded Kneo will
encounter trouble with hostilo scouts boforo they
get their big job completed. Tho wounded In
dians wcro this afternoon removed from the Epis
copal Church to tho Catholic school-house about
a block distant. Ono of tho little babies found
on the battle-field yesterday died to-day.

A WAR SHIP LOST.
Elvo Hundred Ofllcers ami Sailors Per-
lulled Ludicrous Phases of a Disaster.
Constantinople, Jan. 3. Tho news of tho
loss of tho Ertogroul was received by cable des
patches from Hlogo, Japan, It then bolng an
nounced that five hundred of bcr crow of five
hundred and olghty-four officers and sailors
perished when she foundered. Among thoso
who wcro drowned upon this occasion was Ad
miral Osman Pasha, who was, at tho timo, con
founded with tbo famous general of Plevna
fame, Osman Pasha. All Pasha, ono of tho few
Turkish generals who entered tho army as a
private soldier, was also on board tho unfort
unate Ertogroul. ' The Turkish frigate was
bearing Osman Pa6ba on a special mission as .
envoy of tho Sultnn to tbo Japanese Emperor.
The progress of tho war ship Ertogroul from
the timo she left Constantinople several months
beforo she was lost until 6ho finally foundered
In tho China seas was most ludicrous. Sho
left Turkey short of money, coal, and supplies
and seems to havo put without result into
Eovcral ports where she expected to replenish
her treasury, bunkers, and pantries. But tho
supplies which tho homo officials wcro ex
pected to send to theso ports do not seem
to havo materialized, tho result being that tho
unfortunate vessel was always in trouble, and
her crew continually iu danger of starvation.
Sho lost several of her officers through sickness
and her crew were frequently on tho verge of
mutiny owing to tho privations they had to
endure. The foreign port authorities, in sev
eral cases, refused to remit tho harbor dues or
grant other privileges duo tho Ertogroul as a
man-of-war, on tbo ground that she could not
bo a man-of-war, as there was not enough
powder on board of her to allow of tho firing
of salutes. However, by patience and through
the dread experienced by her officers of doing
anything else, tho Ertogroul fiually managed
to reach Japanese waters, and there seems to
have glveu up the struggle a3 a final protest
against tho Turkish government's stupid mis
management. The Ertogroul was a wooden frigate of 2,344
tons burden; sho was built in 1863 and carried
forty-one guns of small calibre.
Admiral Osman Pasha, who perished with tho
Ertogroul, was a vice admiral of tbo Turkish
fleet aud a son-lu-law of Hassan Pasha, Turkish
Minister of Marine.
A MOST SHOCKING CRIME.
Excitement Over the Abduction of a Ton-Year-Old
Wateiitown, N. Y., Jan. 3. Excitement
continues intense in this section over the ab
duction of the ten-year-old daughter of Bray
ton Huugerford, of this city, by a former hired
man, named William Reed. After being in tho
brute's clutches half a night and all day sho
appeared at her grandfather's home, in this
city, at 0 o'clock last evening, with her clothes
torn and disarranged and in a serious state of
nervousness. Her story revealed a most shock
ing crime, perpetrated by her abductor in the
hay loft of a barn, near tho city limits, whoro
he took her beforo daylight and kept her until
darkness camo again.
In tho morning whon the farmer camo to feed
his stock he kept her silent by whispered
threats of instant death and by frequent chok
ing. Thoy were there all day without food and
with garments soaked by tho rain, which had
fallen during their trlp'tho night before. When
darkness camo last night ho led the child out of
the barn and walked with her down tho road
into tbo city and along tho street where her
grandfather lives, going almost to tho house.
With a final threat that if sho told any ono of
what ho had done ho would kill her, ho left her
and run away. The police and some citizens
are searching for him, and a reward Is offered
for his capture. He told a former employer
that his mother lives at Buffalo, and that ho is
a widower with several children. Ho was hired
at Middlctowu, N. Y., by tho child's father to
help with a drove of horses, aud was liked so
well ho has found employment hero oyer since.
No trace has yet been found of him.

PROF. K00H IN ILL-HUMOR.
HIS DISCOVERY ABUSED EOB PECUNI
The Composition of tho Remedy Would
Bo Disclosed But for Precautions Nec
essary to Secure Production of Gen
uine Article Guarantco Against Abuse
Copyright by N. Y. Associated Press.
Berlin, Jan. 3. Professor Koch's first stop
on returning hero yesterday was to seek a con
ference with Dr. Von Qossler, Minister of Me
dicinal Affairs, etc., on tho agitation of the
medical societies against tho continued secrecy
regarding the nature of tho lymph and tho
present method of Its distribution. Professor
Koch is in ill-humor over tho Increasing severity
of tho professional criticisms hero and abroad,
or ho would disclose tho mode of manufac
turing tho lymph. It is understood that
ho asked Dr. "Von Gossler to relieve him from
his pledge to surrender to the state his rights to
tho discovery. Dr. Von Gossler was opposed to
publishing tho composition of tho remedy until
foreign governments wero communicated with
as to tho precautions necessary to secure tho
production of tho genuine lymph. When tho
Landtag resumes Its sittings an official declara
tion will bo made repudiating a deslro on tho
part of the government to retain any advantage
through tho production of tho lymph, and ex
pressing its readiness to communicate tho pro
cess of manufacturing tho lymph through
other governments which aro ablo
to guarantee against tho abuse of the
potent chemical agent. In tho mean timo the
anger of tho medical circles arising from tho
privileged traffic in lymph is growing in
warmth. Dr. Pettenkofer, a loading Bavarian
physician, while declaring recently his belief In
tho success of Koch's method In tho treatment
of lupus and tuberculosis of tho joints, added
that It. was a deplorable blot upon German
science that some Berlin physicians abused
Koch's discovery for pecuniary ends. Ho sug
gested that tho state fix a regular price for
each injection of tho lymph.
Tho Tageblatt asserts that while many patients
are awaiting treatment a large quantity of the
lymph remains unused in tho Ltbbertz labora
tory and that Drs. Cornet, Dangel, and Pfuhl
have a practical monopoly of tho use of tho
lymph. Dr. Cornet, it 6ays, besides his private
clinic in Charlottcnburc, a suburb of Berlin,
will form a similar establishment in the centre
of tho city for night-class patients. Tho Tagc-
oiaws statement is somewuat exaggerated, ana
ignores the fact that a daily incrplslng
quantity of the lymph Is sent out of
the German and foreign hospitals. Dr.
Choyno, of London, has been here several weeks
testing the efficacy of tho remedy in cases of
leprosy. He has become convinced of its
value, and he will proceed to St. Petersburg,,
whjre ho will inoculate lepers. Tho lepers"

Vienna, show improvement in their condition.

Madrid, Jan. 3. A number of persons suf
fering from leprosy havo recently beon treated
in this city according to the method employed
by Dr. Koch. Tho last leper who has received

sharp attacks of fever at intervals of from six
to eight hours slnco tho remedy has been ap
plied. Tho condition of tho other patients has
been much improved.
