( ANS & Two or Them, Both From Massaohu. setts, Ocoupy the Day in' Congress. One Objects to the Way the Other's Undelivered Speech Was Edited. The Latter Explains That ils Zealous Clerk Was Guilty of the Offense Bible Quoted. WAamnwTON., March 18.-"Hot shot for mugwump.; Hoar and Williams shown up; Williams' report on silver coinage riddled." These were some of the words that Wil liams (Mass,) objected to in the house to day, and asked to have them stricken from the record as a part of the speech of Walker (Mass.) which had not been delivered by that gentleman in the house. Williams characterized the language as ungentle manly, unmanly, unparliamentary and of fensive in the extreme. He considered the attack upon mugwnmps a personal attack, for he had been one. In the campaign of 1884 his colleague had been one of the great mugwumps of the day, but now he hated mugwumps worse than the devil. After the gentleman from Massachusetts had said he would print the remainder of his remarks, there appeared a sub heading inserted by himself, con taining the words quoted above. Ha (Williams) wanted to know whether the rulaes permitted a congressman to edit his speeches in the record, or have results as he saw them in his own mind blazoned to the world. It was the business of the commit tee on printing to see that such matter was not injected by gentlemen who printed speeches they never uttered. Walker said the headlines to which the gentleman ob jected had been printed by mistake. Richardson, of the committee on printing, said it was not in the power of the commit tee to prevent gentlemen from making headlines and captions to various phrases 6f speeches. Williams, quoting farther from Walker's speech, objected to the dee. laration that the mugwumps in the United States, congred bheld their seats "by gross deception and moral fraud." These were at best unmanly words, but, coming here under the cover of having been spoken, they were serious. Loud (Col.) interrupted Williams to ask if the latter considered the attack upon mugwumps a personal attack. Williams-"Yes, I do, because I have been one." Continuing, Williams said that in 1884 he bad dotre himself the honor of breaking away. from the republican party. [Demo cratio applause]. In that campaign one of the 'most ditlicult tasks the executive compitteo had was to curb the ardor and reale6f Walker; who now riude this attack upon his formor nesociates. TIe commended to Walker the Sermon on the Mount, to which Walker had referred in his speech: "Woe unto you, scribes and pharisees, hypocrites, for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, anid when he is made ye make him two fold more the child of hell than yourselves." [Great laughter]. Walker said it was evident that Mr. Wil liams had arisen for the purpose of exhibit ing himself. The idea of reading the Bible to a democratic house! [Laughter.] And the gentleman had to read-he couldn't re peat it! The headlines to the speech to which he alluded were not written in his manuscript and he was surprised when he saw them in the record. His clerk had put tleh headlines on one copy of the speech. By an accident which was liable to happen to any one, that copy had been sent to the printing office. Walker urged that the headlines be taken out. "The matter was linally referred to the Committee on print ing for investigation. Entente VWith Italy. WABRINGTON, March 18.-It is learned semi-officially, that arrangements have been made for the re-establishment of full diplomatic relations between the United States and Italy on the same basis as ex isted before the New Orleans incident. Gen. Porter. ministor to Italy, who hHs been in this country over three months, has been ordered to return to Rome. It is ex pected the appointment of an italian min ister to this country will be announced soon. A dispatch from Minister Porter at Indianapolis quotes him as saying: "I have received no instructions to return to my poet. I doubt not, however, that har monious relations have again been re established. Italy has been chosen arbitra tor in the Bering sea controversy. This is an indication that hostilities are at an end between the two countries." Silk Experiment Stations. WASmINGTON, March 18.-Senator George, oft the committee on agriculture, to-day re ported the senate substitute for Mitchell's bill for the encouragement of silk culture.

OCnToAo, March 18.-The grand jury in vestigation into alleged boodleism in the city council in granting valuable fran chises, began this morning. Alderman Kunz, who recently talked rather freely when under the influence of liquor, was the only witness examined. It is rumored that the alleged boodlers have friends on the grand jury, and color is lent to the rumor by the sudden postnbnement of the hearing till to-morrow. It is understood a Special grand jury will be called. It is also rumored that one alderman has fled the city and that several others are under strict surveillance. Kunz declared that he made no revelations, but admitted that he is to be called again. States Attorney Longnecker says he ha sufficient evidence to indict a number of persons, and it is whispered around that several aldermen are among the number, with the prorpect of catching some larger fish. John Bon field, famous for his connection with the anarchist cases, has been employed by the prosecution. The discovery is said to have been made by a detective emyloyed by the investiga tors that the "combine" met in a room in the rear of a saloon owned by certain al dermen for the division of spoils, or plan ning other sand-bagging schemes. It is also said that disappointed political ambi tion had much to do with the expose. ''wo aldermen, one rerublicau and one demo crat, were "turned down" by their respect ive parties at the recent .primaries. and they sought revenge in divulging the seorets of the gang. It is said that President Bill ings, of the Gas Trust, Promoter Bacon, of the "Compressed Air" scheme, and other corporation officials will be brought before the grand jury. THE FIEND DENOUNCED. " Mast Inhuman Monster That Ever Breathed tile Air of Heaven." LrVrEPOOL, March 18.-The bodies of Mrs. Williams and her four children, ex humed at ltainhill after being murdered and buried by Frederick Deeming, alias Williams, were buried this afternoon in the parish, churchyard in the presence of a large concourse of people. At the post mortem examination Albert Deeming brother of Frede ick, nearly fainted at the sight of the bodies. It transpires that Deeming treated his wife brutally soon after marriage. At the grave the curate who conducted the religious exercises de htounced the fiendish acts of Deeming in the most scathing terms, and alluded to the murderer as "the most inhuman monster who had ever breathed the air of heaven." The immense crowd of spectators showed their detestation of Deeming by loudly ap plauding these words. A statement made by Albert Deeming at the coroner's inquest to-day, to the effect that he saw the murders committed, in a dream, caused a great sen sation. He also testified that just before the time of the murder his sister-in-law had £100 on her person. Protests His Innocence. PERTIr, Australia, March 18.-Deeming, the Liverpool murderer, was brought here to-day. A great crowd assembled at the station and a yelling, hooting mob followed the carriage to jail.

DrrUQUE, Iowa, March 18.-A dispatch sent out from here stated that Tom Des mond, ex-sheriff of 8an Francisco county, was believed to be the California sheriff who wrote to Mrs. Terry that be had been oiffered $25,000 to kill Judge Terry. Des mond has not been here since 1884 and can not be the man unless the letter was writ ten at that time. Hte was east three years ago, and until a year ago last fall, when he returned to California, he was suspected, but proved that he had been in Washing ton until after the murder was committed. t The Stay Defeated. WARRErTON. Va., 'March 18.-Lee Hofflen i and Joseph Dye, who last fall murdered a the Kines family, this morning wore lynched near Gainesville, Prince William county.

Collins, the Northern Pa cific agent at Granite, in that state, disap peared Sunday, and no clue to his wherea bouts has been learned. The safe is locked and cannot be opened without the aid of an export, so it is not known how his accounts stand with the company. Collins has been in the employ of the Northern Pacific at Granite over a year and enjoyed the confidence of everybody. As he had the only safe in town it is thought he may have had considerable money entrusted to his care, but the colupany cannot lose any thing, as the American bond company tre his sureties. It is thought by some that he has committed suicide, as be has been sick and despondent of late. The general opin ion is that he has taken what money was in his posessiotn, and has sought a more con genital climate.

IONLY ONE SURE WINNER, And His Name Is Blaine, in the Estimation of Chairman Clarkson. Final Judgment of the Minneapolis Convention May Be for Him. The Premier Showing His Dignity by Remaling Al-oof From the Petty Scramble for Delegates, . A55SSVILLg, N. C., March 18.--Bon. J. l. Clarkson, chairman of the republican na tional committee, who came to Asheville four weeks ago to try and arrest a siege of inflammatory rheumatism, came too late and has had a severe and painful attack of it. Mrs. Clarkson and a portion of his family are with him. Tuesday the Associ ated prs'es representative called on Mr. Clarkson and asked him if the reports that he is a candidate for the presidency were true. He replied: "Of course there is no foundation what ever for such reports. My answer to all inquiries and kindly proffers of help on this subject has been no. I have neves heard that bee sing, and its music is not enchanting to me. Besides, I am not wanted for the place, and I have sense enough to know it. Of course, I am grate fil to the good friends in the various states who have thought otherwise, but this is the truth." "Who is your preference for the repub lican nomination?" "I have not taken sides in the matter, and as chairman of the national committee I could not properly do so. I can only say that I hupe the party will exercise abun dant caution and deliberation in the choice, for it will give itself victory or defeat in making the nomination. We need a man who will heal all republican divisions every where, who will poll the full party vote and draw most strongly on the million first voters this year and most heavily draw from the democrats in New York and the northern statesmen already half way in favo of republicanism by being in favor of re'iprooity." "How can that man be found ?" "Find a man most sure to heal and unite ahd inspire the party in New York, ]ndi iann. Wisconsin and other dodbtful states and the man who will draw enough repub lican farmers back from the alliance to jnake Nebraska, Kansas, Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin surely republican and you hhve found toe man. In such a situation the republicans of such doubtful states ought to be deferred to very largely." "Do you think there will be several can didates balloted for?" "It looks so. Alger, Cullom and Blair are prominent candidates. Manderson is likely to be. 'There ista strong undertone of poputlar movement toward Uncle Jerry ilosk ind one of gathering power for Guy. McKinley." "Is it not too early for McKinley, so soon after the passage of his bill?" "No, there is nothing in that. The re publican party is responsible for the bill and the author would add only honor to it. McKinley is one of half a dozen men given to the nation in a century. He is strong and splendid in everything that Armericans most admire, and he will be president some day. jºicle Jerry Rusk, in whose life there has been much that touches with sympathy the millions of American homes that are acquainted with struggles and hardships, would make a strong and popular candi date. The party will do the right thing at Minneapolis. Blaine could be nominated and could be elected beyond a doubt if he would take it, and he is our only certain sure winner. President Harrison has added to the memory of the country and the party both. He has grown steadily in public estimation, and in the last year rapidly in party estimation. It is not unlikely and indeed probable that he onay be chosen again. If the party is left free to mr'-a up its mind, and no effort is made whici ,ill change the dignity of his position or iat him in the light of scrambling for a renom ination, the final judgment at Minneapolis is most likely to be in his favor, but he is showing his own breadth and political wisdom in holding that the party should meantime review the field completely and discuss all available men frankly, and then decide with something like unanimity of party and desire. Such a choice would mean the election of the candidates nomi nated. Harrison or whoever it should be." A NT1ý !Al1Pý). ilý ~ Arkansas OUflee-¶uiders Wavering in Sup port of Harrisou. LITTLE ROCE, Ark., March 18.-Gen. Pow ell Clayton has been in the city for the past week in consultation with republioan man agers from all parts of the state. Soon af ter Blaine's letter declining to permit his name to go before the Minneapolis conven tion was made publio, it was given out that the republican delegates from this state to the convention would be instructed for Har rison. Surface indications are that this programme has been chauged within the past week or since Gen. Alger an nounced his candidacy, and that Gen. Clay ton's visit here and conference with repub lican leaders has something to do witu it. Just what the plan is, can not be learned, but it is whispered around that the replub lican state convention which meets here April 7, will pass a resolution cordially in dorsing Harrison's administration, but will send an uninstructed de:egation to the na tional convention. Those who remember the attitude of the Arkansas republioan delegates in the national conventions of 1881-8i , say they will be greatly surprised if Harrison receives the votes of the dole gation at Minneapolis unless he develops enough strength to insure his nomination on the first ballot. ICARtNING HIS SALARY. A Space Writer I)eldes to PIt tUp Two IDenmocratlc Tlkiets. Nitw YOK, March 18.--The Washilngton correspondent of the Herald sends his paper a story in which he raises the question as to whether there may not be two demono oratio candidates this year. The writer satys others think it not unlikely because of the difference on silver and the tariff. 't he dispatach tlius on this way: A gentleman favors this policy whose judgment will give intelligent direction to the movement, and whose private wealth will furnish to a great extent the elnews.of war and who is terribly in earnest regarding the matter. D)oring the interim betweel now and the meeting of the unational convention at Chi cago tilhe proposition will be quiet;y dis cussed among them, and letters and circu Inre will be sent out to the sound money detmoorate, particularly in the New Eng land, middle anid westernt states, inviting co-operation with the movement in the evoent that by the action of thei Chicago convention it shall become necessary. in (ieorgl Stateo. AuUrruvuTA, (Ia., March 18.S-Hountor 1Hill's party arrived here this evening. On the way a stop was made at Waynesboro, whetn a large crowd had assembled at the sta tion. The local militia company fired salute and the ladies of the city presented H1ill with a magnifioent bouquet, bearing s card inscribed, "To our great demoratht leader, who leads but to victory." The senator was introdooed as the next presi dent of the United States, and made a brief speech. When this city was reached sc great was the crowd assembled about the depot that it took the party ten minutes tc force a way to the carriages. They wars escorted to the Arlington hotel by a militia company and other organizations, and this evening Senator Hilli held a reception. Mr. Hill addressed a large audience at the opera house this evening. He was en thusiastically received, and at the close el the address resolutions commending his wise counsel and patriotic words ware passed. Michigan Proliblitionlits. GuAND IAtZr's, Mich., March 1A.-The Michigan state prohibition convention completed its organization to-day and se lected delegates to the national conven tion. The platform, after the usual pro hibitory planks, declared that the circulat ing medium of the country may rightly consist of gold. silver and paper, of full legal tender and sufficient in quantity to meet the demands of business. Trusts and like combinations are de cried and the co-operation of Mich igan farmers and other classes is in yoked to aid in the overturning of class legislation and in the accomplishment of industrial reforms. Telegraph and tele phone lines should be managed in the in terest of the people and the adjustment of duties on imports should be fixed in bus iness like manner by a nationalcommission of experts, and not be made the football o i political acrobats. Reed's Bile Overflows. PouTLAND, Me., March 18,-At a banqnst of the Young Men's Republican club last night, Hon. Thomas B. Reed, the chief speaker. said: "Perhaps the very best ex ample of the fundamental difference be tween the democratic and republican par ties can be seen in that curious excursion of Japhea in search of his father, or David hunting the presidency, now visible un der the southern heavens. David B. Hill is a typical democrat and ought to be the presidential candidate of his party, because he represents it; he is like it; he under stands it, and in a short time, if elected, he will be it." Never Dreamed or Writing It. Nrw YonR, March 18.-The Herald's cor respondent at Lakewood, N. J., saw ex President Cleveland last night regarding the Evening Telegram story. "Why," he said, "I never dreamed of writing such a letter, and, surely, if I had penned such a letter I would certainly know something about it. Well, well," he continued, "so they say Mrs. Cleveland induced me to suppress a letter which was never written. That silly story is an absurd one, for the main fact is that Mrs. Cleveland never in terferes in political matters in which I am concerned." Democratic Primaries. MISsouLA, March 18.--Special.]-At the democratic ward primaries held to-night eight delegates were elected from each ward to attend the city convention next Wednes day. Thomas. MCaffery was nominated for alderman from thd Fourth ward. No nominations were made from the other wards. DICK GAEBLER MURDERED. The Butte Barber Who Played Detective WVaylaid and Killed. A dispatch from New York brings the news that Dick Gaebler, the Butte barber, died in Bellevue hospital Thursday morn ing, a victim of violence. He was found on the Bowery unconscious Wednesday, and died without having rhade any statement as to where his injuries were-received. The hospital doctors found that his skull had been fractured and that his body was a mass of bruises. In their opinion he bad been sandbagged and then used as a foot ball by his assailants. When Gaebler arrived in New York from Montana in November, 1889, he fell into the hands of bunco men, who tricked him out of $500. The police were slowin making arrests, and Gaebler turned detective on his own account. He succeeded in running down three of the confidence men and got his money. These three men were sent to prison. Their friends and confederates threatened to make away with Gaebler at, the first opportunity. He made an unsuc cessful effort to get on the detective force there and then began a corw so of hard drink ing. He usually went armed, and said that the confidence men would always iind him ready for them. When and where he wacassaulted is a mystery as yet. He was probably taken by surprise and disarmed, as the big revolver he was known to carry wis not upon him. The police are wQrking on the theory that he was assaulted by friends of the confi dence men. In one of Gaebler's pockets was found a certificate of a deposit of $1,200 with the American Loan and Trust com pany. His assailants evidently feared that an attempt to negotiate this certificate would lead to their detection and conoluded not to take it. Gaebler has no relatives in New York and no one has yet put in a claim for the $1,200. HAVE COMti, TO TERMS. Rtailroads and Ctour el'Alene Mine Ownu. era Agree on a Compronlise. It is semi-officially reported that the Mine Owners' association of the Ctour d'Alenel has settled the dilllculties with the rail roads over freight rates. The two railroad companies have conceded the reduction de manded by the mine owners of $2 I'er ton, which brings the rate on concentrates to Missouri river points and Denver to the rate charged in 1890, which was $14 per ton. As this is all that was demanded of them there is no doubt that work will be immeu diatelp resumed. It is also rumored that the association has decided to reduce the wages of common laborers in the mines to $3 per day. Miners will lie paid the old late of $:1.n0. The association has decided that their work is worth more than that of unskilled laborera, and that the out, since it must be made somewhere, shall be made where it calt be done moat justly. The resuomption of work in the mines will necessitate the importation of at least 2,000 laborers audt miners. Fully that nlumner have left the tC.ur d'Alenes and scattered over the mining caumps of the United States since the shutdown in January. It is in. tended to start up by April 1. .0,000 CATTlEI I ZPltNil1. In the Terrible Itllezzrd That. Swept Over the aouth.

BALFOUU IS A FAILURE. As a Leader He Proves an Intense Disappointment to His Colleagues. Salisbury Desires to Leave to His Successor a Heritage of Oomplioatione. Crisis In the Prussian Cabinet, With Strong Probability That Caprivl Will te sign the Chancellorship. ICopyright, 1892. New York Associated Press.1 LONDON, March 18.-Labonchere's at tempt in the commons last night to extort from Balfour some information as to the dissolution of parliament was a fizzle, owing to lack of support. Gladstone, before starting for Hawarden, brought Harcourt, Trevlyan and others into accord with his policy of not interfering with the progress of government business, on the ground that it is tumbling to pieces itself. The warmest friends of Balfour admit that hisleadership is a disappointment. No regn lar obstruction has thwarted business, yet government bills and votes for supply are in an unprecedented, condition of muddle. Balfour's want of tact frequently irri tates members and drives them into the opposition. The question of renewal of the modus vivendi in Bering sea has reached an advanced stage, Sir Julian Pauncefote being charged to state the char acter of Salisburv's reply. In ministerial circles it is believed that Salisbury con tinues to contend that the renewal of the modus vivendi under existing conditions is unreasonable. The liberals believe Salis bury wants to leave the question in a state to embarrass the coming Gladstone govern ment. The matter does not excite much public interest,' as, with the exception of a certain jingo section of the radical press, nobody admits the possibility of the difficulty ripening into adangerous quarrel. The success of the bi-metallic league com mittee is such that it has been decided to raise the question of international confer ence by debate in parliament. Adhesion of many members of the commons is said to justify the movement. 'i he Irish unionists have arranged to contest sixty seats in Ireland. The chance of winning a majority is remote, but they aim to embarass the nationalists. The lat ter, it is estimated, will require £30,000 to fight with success. It is reported that the Palmers, one of the largest naval and shipping firms in the United Kingdom, are arranging to transfer their plant from Newcastle-on-Tyne to a certain port in the United States. Rooke feller, of the Standard Oil company, will, it is said. join the enterprise, controlling $40,000,000 and using his influence to se0ure a government contract for war ships. Lealders among the striking iminors pri vately admit.that the strike was ,4 failure. ITho men have already aost In wages %2,000, 003 and further loss is accruing. If addi tional cost to consumers in the increase in the price of coal is added it will be seen th.at a gigantio sum of money has been wasted since the struggle began. The sole persons profiting have been the middlemen, who unloaded stocks at large profits. e P'RUSSIAN CABINET CRISIS. One Member Has Resigned--Van Caprivi Will Probably Follow. BiRLnr, blarch 18.--The Tageblatt de c olares that a majority of those present at e yesterday's cabinet council advocated the I withdrawal of the primary education bill. a The Post says the attitude of the ministers I toward the bill has ohanaed, a majority of the cabinet being opposed to Von Zedlidtz Trutzschloe's views. It now appears cer tain that Count Von Zedlidtz Trutzschler resigned office at the termination of the z cabinet council Thursday, prompted by the I emperor's statement that he did not wish the z primary education bill passed by a one I side majority. It is stated that Herr lRauchhaupt, leader of the conservatives in the lower house of the Prussian diet, now declines to accept certamin clauses in the primary education bill, although the main 3 body of conservatives is pledged to support - the measure. The result of this action is i to dreate a deadlock. The ministers to-day tried to convince the chancellor that he need not identify himself with Count Von t Zedlitz. r It is reported that the emperor sent Dr. r Lucanus yesterday afternoon to induce Count Von Zidlidtz to reconsider. It is believed that Zedlidtz declined to withdraw his resignation, Chancellor Von Caprivi's intention to resigst becoming more decided. I He has represented to the emperor that he must identify himself with Zedlidtz whose I views he personally shares. In the event of the chancellor resigning it I will be difficult to anticipate I his successor, or a possible combtn ation for a new ministry. Dr. Miguel, Prussian minister of finance, calmly awaits events. The London Telegraph's Berlin correspondent says the emperor would not have left Berlin if Caprivi had really re signed, and there is no foundation for the presumption that Prince Bismarck is likely to be consulted. No decision anent Zed lidtz will be taken until the emperor re turns. His sudden departure, coupled with the secrecy of the proceedings of the coun cil, have filled the air with political rumors. Caprivi vainly trier to dissuade Zedlidia from lesigning, as this result would prob ably greatly embarrass the government. EXPRESSIONS OF GRATITUDE. Maulfested by the Itussians for tile RLelief Cargo of tihe Indiana. LrAuv, March 18.--Enthusiesm over the American contlibutions of provisions re coived by the steamship Indiana show no sign of abatement. Employee of the ar senal here to-day chartered seven steamers and went out to the steamship Indiana and greeted Captain sergeant. All sorts of salutes were given and wild yells went up for America and everything American. Another Will lie Sent. P)muAnaLmtrIA, March 18.-The executive committee of the IRussian Relief associa tion, at an executive session this afternoon, decided to send another vessel to Itussia with a cargo of food. A cablegram was re ceived to-day from Mr. Blankenberg, tell ing of the intense enthusiasm with which the cargo of the Indiana was received at Libau.
