A Sharp Colloquy Between Teller and Hawley, Other eenaters Partial. pStlg-News of Washlmgtum. WAsmenoTo, Sept. 12.-Stewart's resolu tion for a committee to ascertain whether any senator is financially interested in any national bank went over till te-morrow. The repeal bill was taken up and Mitchell, of Oregon, addressed the senate against the bill. While Mitehell was speaking, Stewart called attention to the absence of a quorum. The roll was called and fifty three senators responded. Mitchell re sumed his speech. He favored free coin age, and while he would be willing, as a last resort to change the ratio in o-der to secure free coinage,.he believed it should be decreased to 15)r to one. Mitchell dwelt upon the surpelslng im portanes of the question which confronted congress and discussed the eanies which produced the receat distressed condition of the country. He maintained that the She- man law was In no degree responsible for it and yet repeal was to be brought about because of the clamor from banking Inter ests. There was no danger of the United ttates becoming the dumping ground for foreign silver; it was needed for money pur poses and could not be spared. Hawley, of Conneoctict, then spoke. He said he was in favor of the passage of the pending bill end while willing to be as pa tient as possible with the opponents of re peal there was one general misstatement which had. been iterated and reiterated until he was tired of it; that was that there was somebody who believed in the total de struetion of half the currency of the world. It wise terrible misstatement, a sophistial statement, a false statement, practically. Then there was a sharp colloquy between Teller and Hawley, in which subsequently Mitchell, McPherson and Allen joined. Then Teller spoke further on silver. He said he should consider himself eraven to a degree and unwo thy of a seat in the senate if he should allow this great orime, as he considered it, to be carried out without protest. If his protest should ring in the ears of the senators until it boname tire some and tedious, they must remember it was not only one-third of the country that was to be desolated and destroyed, bat in his judgment disaster would be the tart and lot of all people in due time. He would devote his time to the interests of his reople and the country as large, and there was no labor, no saeriflee, no can tumely put upon him that would phase him from his opposition to this damnable bill. Hawley said that if the bill was passed, and a few months should develop that the east and west were desolated, it was quite competent for congress to reconsider the action, and it would likely do so. Stewart finally got the floor, and was in the midst of a long apeech when he reluot antly yielded for an executive session, after which the senate adjourned. Information Given. WAsnNoroTO, bent. 12.-The vice-presi dent laid before the senate to-day a letter from the treasury department in relation to the redemption of silver certitcates.

House Proreedelos. WAsmINoTON, Sept. 12.- In the house Hepburn, of Iowa, asked immediate consid eration of a . eolutlon calling on the secre tary of the treasury to inform congress what amount of merchnndiso in bond was t ans ported from one point in the United States to another through Canadian territory in 1892. Hilburn, of California, objected and the matter went over. The house decided to iarticipate in the ceremonies of the cen tmnnial celebration of the laying of the cor no, stone of the capitol on the 18th instant. DEAF AND DUMB ASYLUM.

Despite the present stringency of the money market and the stagmated condltion of the mining industry, the Montana Min eral Land Development eompany beobs up serenely with its usual dispensation to its stokeholders, having declared dividend No. 5 of 20 cents per share on the 6th inst., the same having been made payable Sept. 11, thus makifng 60 cents per share that has been paid to stockholders in the last esah teen months. ' his is an excellent showing, and augurs well for the future of the com pany. The Rev. John 0. Miser and Mr. Wm. Simonis, of Ohio, and Capt. H. Hight, of Portland. Me., all interested parties, who have been visiting nelena, together with A. E. Cumming, secretary, and Daniel Simpson, president, visited the Eva May mines last week in Cataraet dist lot, and were greatly pleased with the development and equipments of the oompanv's property. l Mers. Miser, Simonis and Hight nil pro 1 diet a great future for these properties. As p the ore in these mines contains more gold and lead than silver, the company has about concluded to sink its double com partment shaft to the further depth of 800 feet, when it will be 450 feet deep and 800 feet below water line, at which roint inves t tigation has proved the ezistense of pay ore bodies. The main tunnel is now in 525 feet. A winse has been sunk sixty-eight feet at the breast of this tunnel, diselosing a large a body of ore running $36 in gold, $20 to $60 e in silver, and from seven per cent to 54 per cent in lead to the ton. As this winze is below water line, it would be impossible to further develop the mines throuph this sourse, so the maln shaft was started to the surfaoe and is now completed for 160 feet. At the month of this shaft there is a fine f double engine, with a capacity for sinking 750 teet; two 40-horse power steel horizon tal boiers, a Inrae Litderwood hoist having r a capacity of holating 4.000 pounds 850 feet y per minute, and a Knowles pump capable of raising 100 gallones of water per minute a distance of 800 feet. This machinery is all new and of the best and most approved pat r terns, and, with the completion of the main shaft to the ore body. there is every reason to believe that the pronerty will be in a position to yield handsome p:oSts. Capt. John Sheahan and his crew of miners at the Eva May mines have ex pressed a desire to take half their pay for work on these mines in cash and one-half in stock of the Montana Mineral Land De velopment company at its market value, which is a flattering testimonial of the I value of this group of mines.

TRAIN ROBBERS ACTIVE, The Most Successful Exploit of º the Tribe so Far This Seasbn. s Train Stopped in the Woods of Indiana and Rich Plunder Carried OfE Estlimated to Amount From $300,000 to *20.000-Dynamite Employed on the eate. KiRNDALLVILL.. Ind., Sept. 12.-Another darlna and suocessful train robbery goes I on record. The New York express train on s the Lake Shore road which left Chionao at 7:45 last night reached the siding at Keeler, SAve miles west of here, at one o'clock this morning. On approaching it Engineer I Knapp noticed the red danger signal light at the switch and stopped his train. As he did so several men armed with Winches Sters pranu out of the woods and saonttered I along the train, sovering the trainmen, r while one fired at the engineer. inflict Sing a wound in the shoulder. With everything in hand the robbers then pro seeded to blow open the forward ex press ear with dynamite. Then knook ting the express messenger senseless, they exploded five dynamite oartridges in suoees alon against the safe before it yielded. They then helped themselves to its con I tents. The whole performance oceupied an hoar, when, without making an attemrt on the other express car, or interfering with the pasrtnger,. who remained in the cars panio stricken, they fired a fetow warn Ing shots and disappeared in the woods. It was rumored that the robbers seeured Sa quarter of a million dollars, in transit r from one of the Chicago banks to New York. The train came on here, the alarm was given, and the sheriff at once sum moned a posse and started in pursuit of the bandits. t There were two safes in the express ear, I one for through matter to which the mes senaer had no key, and one for local matter. The robbers compelled the messenger to open all the safes, from which several thousand dollars in currency was taken. s They then blew open the big safe with dyn s amite. In an outer compartment it was r said there was a quarter of a million dollars in currency with which the robbers loaded themselves. They did not stop to open the inner compartment, in which was a lot more money. In their haste to get away the robbers also overlooked two gold bars. When they left the train they went in a southerly direction. The point at which a the robbery oeourred is in a deep cut in the woods, but all the country around is thickly populated, with little timber, and it is be lievdsbt it will be imposalble for the rob bers to escape. Posses are eat soouring the country in searoh of them. From 1867 to 1872 Kendaliville and the adjacent country to the northwest was hendquarters of one of the most desperate gangs of train robbers. horse thieves and eutthroats that ever Infested the west. In the early '70s they had a regular system of I robbing freight cars of the .tar Union line, opening the cars enroute and throwing off the plunder to confederates, the plunder in aggregate amounting to vast sums. Abont a that time they varied the monotony by rob ing the Kendallville bank. The gang had a strong political pull and for a long time escaped justice. Finally the citizens took the matter in hand, posses were formed throughout the section, and work begun. In the conflicts which followed a dozen robbers were killed and a number of farm era wounded. Twenty of the leaders of the gang, iaoluding the notorious "Rod" Leary, were landed in the penitentiary. Al TO THE AMOUNT. Manager Crosby Rays It Will Not Reach $20,000. CnzcAo, Sept. 12.-To-night General I Manager Crosby, of the United States Ex press company, said he had been looking into the master all day and is satisfied the bes will not amount to $20,000. 'he story that the amount scoured would reach I $300,000 was based on the allegation that some bank in Chalogo had shipped to its New York correspondents last nirht $250. 1 000. Nothing can be learned here, how ever, that will bear out the story, all the banks denying all knowledge of such ship ment. r Express Messenger Hamblin returned to the city this afternoon and told his etoay of the affair, not differing in any essential feature from the earlier stories except that he thought the number of men concerned in the affair not more than six at the out side. Engineer Knapp reaeived two bullets,one in the shoulder and one in the left side,andl a is now in his home in Elkhart. He is in a a critical condition. ao Trace of the Robbers.

From the exhibition at the opera house last night it would oeem that it is about time the authorities put some restrictions on the brutal exhibitions of prize fighting which go on under the name of sparring omatches in Iielens, to the exten at t lest of Insisting that they take plaie outside the city limits. The "sparring match" set for last nfight was neither more nor less than an exhibition of brutality, in which Ike Hayes and Dick Carroll, the latter known as "the soldier," were the principal aotors. Carroll was once in the regular array, and had a reputation as a rough anld tumble fighter. Haves is well known looolly, prin kcially because of his inability to stand up before a scientific boxer. There was the usual crowd present when time was called for the first round. 'I ho men started in to pound each other, and kept It up all the way through. Haves jab blnur Car oil in the wind with his right and Son the jaw with his left. "i hbe Stildier" I punched Hayes in the month and nose and t had the negro bleeding like a stuck pig when the round closed. In doing so, how eve, he broke his right wrist, which ren dered his right hand useeless. 'Though both men we:* winded when the round closed, ther came up fresh for the next and started in to hammer each other again. About the middle of the round, however, they got more cautious and began a walk around which continued til the gang I struck. In the third they started in to spar for wind. hut urged on by the cries of the crowd soon began to mix thinrie p at a lively rate. Near the close of the round Hayes landed a heavy left hand blow on Carroll's month aund sent him to tihe ropes. Tihe gong saved him. Hayes started out in the fourth round to whip his man and fought Carroll all over the ring. The latter avoided a deal of pan eihment by decking continually. but was nearly gone when the round elosed. Car - rol had freshened up considerably in the fifth round and though Hares started out as the aggreesor. "the soldier" soon began to "mix things" and punched the colored f fellow in the face two blows for every one a recelved. Hayes was very weak when the round closed, but Carroll was winded. The sixth round started with sparring, which continued until Haves landed a left heander on Carroll's neck that staggered t him. Hayes didn't know enough to r follow up his advantage, and Car roll got his second wind and was making a show of fight, when the colo: ad fellow sent in a left-hander on the i neck, followed by a right hander on the op posite side, and another left about where the first landed. Carroll fell litk a loa and was clearly oonated out. He got up after "ten" was called and his seconds were try Ing to cbhase the stars out of their prinoi pal's eves, when some one suggested that I Carroll had gotten up before being counted out. Hayes walked up to the dazed man in pretty mnuch the same style as a btlcher would to a steer that hadn't died at the first blow. He hit Carroll and the latter I went down. This time it did settle it, a J he fight was advertised to be for a purse of of $300, of which $250 went to Hayes for r whipping his man, and $50 to Carroll for getting whipped. PARDONED BY THEI GOVERNOR One Man Paved Fifteen Years and the Other Three Months. The state board of pardons has approved the action of Gov. Rickards in extending executive clemency to Mike Fitzgerald, now serving a term in the state peniten t tiary. He was convicted of murder, com mitted Nov. 26, 1888, in Chotean county and sentenced to twenty years in prison. 'I bhe governor, in his letter granting the pardon, says: "I have concluded that while Fitzgerald was undoubtedly guilty, the provocation was so great that it is not un reasonable to suppose that he acted in self defense. He has served about five years of his terra, been a good prisoner, and I feel satisfied the ends of justice have been met." The name of the man killed wees Richard E. Williams. He was a colored man, commonly spoken of in Fort Benton as the "nigger doctor." Sidney H. Moln. tire, the present city attorney of Helena, was the proseenting attorney for Chotean county at the time of the killing, and secured Fitzgerald's conviction. From the testimony it appeared that the men had had a quarrel and a fight, and that Wil a lims had drawn a knife on Fitzgerald prior to the shooting. Williams, so Scording to nimanny of the wit nesses, was of a quarrelsome disposition, and was using ve y abusive SIlnguage to Fitzgerald at the time of the dilhculty. Williams lingered eight or nine days after the shooting before he died. Meantime Fitzgerald had been discharged from costody by a justice of the peaee. When Williams died Fitzgerald was rear s rested and convicted of the crime of mur der in the second degree. The petition for - his pardon was signed by a large number of e the most influential people in Choteau - county. The state board of pardousalso approved tho governor's action in commuting the r sentence of Frank Brady, who was con Svictesd of prand larceny in S-lver lotw t county on June 29. 1891, and sentenced to I three years in state's prison. He laid in jail five months after his eentence awaiting a new trial, which was not pressed, how eever. It was the governor's intention to I commute the sentence to the extent of the a five months Brady lay in jail, which would have canued his release on July 2i last. As this time has been allowed to go by the governor adds to his commrutation a re etoatlioen to citizenship, which the board of - pardons also approves. A NARROW ESC('APE.

IS MR. OLNEY'S AFFAIB President and Secretary of the Treasury Not Moving in Chi. nese Exclusion. The Attorney-CGeonral Says Hla Dopartment Has Chargo of the Matter. Then lie ?ells lWhy No Chlneee lInive Been W.et iiJone--Hlave Appealed Their ('ases. WAmIrrivo'.J. Sept. 12.-The first authorl tativr statement issned by officials of the grvernumeut in regard to the GUnry Chlnese exclusion noact and the agitation concerning its enfozeement or non-enforcement, was made by Attorney (jeneral Olney to-day. It ias follows: "The statement that sny action was recsatly taken by the president or secretary of state relative to the non-eu forcernen' of the sixth section of the so called Geary act is without foundation. All that has been done ninea the original iostructions Rlven concunrretly to revenue oflicers and to marshbls and their dei uties. by the secretary of the treasury and the de partment of justice, bhas been done by this department. It having been held by Judge Ross, of California, that warrants could issue for violation of said sixth section on complaint of a private individual, and complaints having been in fact made and warrants issued ino a lons instances, mar shale and their deputies have been in stunoted that a warrant issued by a court must be so. red and any orders for deporta tion subsequontly made in such cases must be put into execution to the extent of any funds available for that purpose. "Derortations have not actually btea made, however, for this reason. In all cases of warrants isued as above stated, write of habeas corpus have been applied for, and being denied, appeals have been taken from such denial. In that state of things rule 22 of the United states supreme court, expreasly authorized by statute, for bids any ohange of custody pending appeal. The langunge is: 'Pending an appeal from the final decision of any court or judge de clining to grant a writ of habeas corpus custody of the person shall not be dis turbed.' The result is that in all cases of the kind referred to parties, in custody of the marshal or his deputies at the time when an:eals are token from orders re fusing writs of habeas corpus must con tinue in such custody pending such appeal. anat can be deported, if at all, only alter judgment upon snuch appeals in favor of the government."
