NEEDED BY THE WEST Meauur Approved by the Tranmississlppl Congress, Covering Many Matters of Importance. BIG MAJORITY FOR FREE SILVER. Canals and Deep Water Harbors Are In Favor, and the Cession of Non. Mineral Arid Lands. St. Louis, Nov. 28.-At the morning session of the Transmislssippi con gress, the California delegation, under a special order alloting two hours to the discussilon of staple agriculture, opened the debate upon the proposition in favor of a bounty upon exported agri cultural products, which cannot be aided by a protective tariff, so long as manufacturers receive such protection. The proposition was in the form of a minority report from the committee on resolutions, the majority having voted to refuse a place for such recommenda tion in the report to be made by it. Delegate Roche, of California, in a brief address, urged that farmers, not from a protection or free trade standpoint, were entitled to government aid as a matter of Justice as long as manufac turers were aided. Delegate Lubln, of the same state, followed In an argument upon the same lines. Delegate Frank B. Cannon, of Utah, for the majority of the resolutions com. mittee,for the oppositondeclaredhis be. lief that such a proposition could only aggravate the ills of the farmer and only increase the responsibilities of the government. After further discussion the matter was referred to the next ses sialon of this congress. Upon reassembling this afternoon a partial report was submitted by the committee on resolutions, and without debate the following were adopted; Favoring the prompt construction of the Nicaragua canal under control and supervion of the government of the United States; recommending the en couragement by congress of more ex tended trade relations with the West Indies and the republics of South Amer ica insofar as such relations can be ex tended by friendly legislation; petition ing congress to pass such laws as will insure to the inhabitants protection to landed interests, a proper administra tlon of law and order throughout the territory, and extension of mail facil lties in the Yukon river district, to northwestern Alaska and Fish River districts; that the Illinios and Missis sippi canal, known as the Hennepin, and connecting the Mississippi river and the lakes, receive a sufficent ap propriation annually from congress to speedily flnish the work; requesting all Mesainfb of congress tfre the trans misissippi states to favor liberal ap propriations for a deep water barbor on the Texas coast, and also appropria tions to ascertain to what extent the rivers of Texas can be made navigable; urging congress to provide for the con struction of a deep water harbor at San Pedro, Cal. In addition, resolutions were adopted favoring the calling of the attention of congress to the need of the improve ment of Oakland harbor, Bacramento and San Joaquin rivers, and Islay creek. California; favoring the construction of a cable to Hawaii and one to the Faral lone islands, and also the protection and defense of Puget Sound by fortifications and a detail of warships. Also these resolutions were adopted: Favoring the cession of the non-mineral arid lands to the several states and terri tories In which they are situated; pro viding fir the appointment of a commit tee of five to attend a conference called by the National Grange, and Patrons of Industry, for the purpose of consider ing the tariff and monetary questions; urging upon the executive department to speedily put into effect the act of congress opening up for settlement the Uncompaghre and Tilntah reservations in Utah; favoring the continuous up propriation of money for the continu ance of present improvements in the upper Mississippi river; urging congress to pass enabling acts for the admission of Oklahoma, New Mexico and Arizona as states; deploring the present con dition of affairs in the Indian territory and favoring the establishment of the Indianl government for state control: favoring the construction of a deep channel to connect the great lakes with the Atlantic ocean by way of the St. ,Lawrence, also by way of the Hudson river, and the construction of canals connecting Lake Superior with the Mis sissippi river, and Lake Erie with the Ohio river; favoring the establishment of an international court to hear and determine all questions arising between the government of the United States, Great Britain, Mexico and Canada; fa voring the appropriation of sufficient money to Increase the depth of water in the harbor of Duluth; recommending the use of American coal in the United States navy. At this juncture the chairman of the committee on resolutions, Hon. W. J. Blryan, presented the majority report of the committee on resolutions, as tol low;s: "lResolved, (1) That In direct oppo sition to the plan known as the BlaltI moure plan, the sense of this convention is that all the issues of paper money should be by the genral government; (2) That it is the sense of this conven tion that the pending proposition for a reformation of our paper currency is one that.'In our judgment, would create addlitional and Iperhaps insurnountlable dimcuities to the return to bimetallism.

Rich ardein. Nebrakli, and Thomas 1eart. Minnlenota, was then presented by tiny. Mtalnnlrd, who ilnlnediatlly opened the debate with a ten-minute adcdress in be half ,of his repicrt. The text of the re port is: "Reolved, That we favor the use of sl1ver in the coinage of this country to the fullest extent consistent with the maintenance of our present standard, and that we cordially approve. the efforts of the government of the United States to secure the co-operation of other nations In a more extended use of silver In laternational commerce' upon such ratio of value with gold as may be found expedient and effective, and suspectible of being delhnitely main tained, but we deprecate the agitation of the free coinage of silver by this country as a menace of the soundness of our currency and Injurious to public welfare." (oyv. Stannard pIlededl for the protec tion of the country from a depreciated currency an urged by the majority re port. He knew, he said, there was lit tle chance of changing minds that had come here already made up. and there fore he could only put himself and his associates on record as believing it was bad policy to recommend to congress a policy that would bring into use a de prelated currency. Delegate W. J. Bryan, of the major Ity, yielded a portion of his time to Del egate Johnson, of Colorado, and (tnd win. of Utah, who briefly declared what they believed were the unanimous wishes of their constituents. Delegate Hancock, of Texas, spoke for the minor ity report, being followed by G(en. Weaver, of Iowa, whose remarks were devoted to a review and comparison of the circulation of 1S80-66 and the pres ent time as indicating a need of greater per capita circulstion. Delegate Black, of Washlington, declared for free coin age. Delegate Leighton pronounced the resolution of the majority but an in dorsement of silver monometallism. Congressman Bryan then closed the debate with a plea for the independent action of the west in favor of an honest money. A vote was then taken on the suhstl tution of the minority for the majority report and it was lost-213% to 77%. The question then recurred on the adoption of the majority report. A di vision on the question was demanded and the currency portion was adopted by a viva voce vote. The silver coin age portion was voted on by state roll call and was adopted by a vote of 214% to 67%. The chairman of the executive com mittee then reported a plan for a per manent organization providing for a full set of officers, as at present, Includ ing a vice president and two members of the executive commitee from each state, and annual meetings at a place to be selected by the preceding con gress. In addition a treasurer is pro vided for, and annual dues of $10 from the first delegate from each business organisation and 35 for each additional delegate to which it may be entitled. also an annual payment of $5 by each delegate appointed by a governor, mayor or county executive. The basis of representation is fixed at ten dele gatee for each state, one for each city, with one additional for each 5,000 of poulation, the total not to exceed ten, one for each business organization,with one additional for each fifty members, not to exoeed a total of ten, and one delegate for each county, each delegate present to have one vote. With an amendment providing that no state shall have a greater voting power than thirty the report was immediately adopted. With the adoption of a resolution calling the attention of the interstate emnametws commission to alleged extor tionate charges in the freights upon cotton, relatively In excess of the charges on other products, the conven tion took a recess.

NOT HIS OWN BOSS. Aaron Declared He Was His Own Boss, But Appearances Were the Other Way. MRS. AARON WAS ON THE STAND. Details Her Relations With Her Huspand and Her Slsterd.n.Law.Fllght of Aaron. Fargo, N. D., Nov. 28.--hanager Hay woo(d, of the Western Union omci, was ordered by the court to-day to bring In all the telegrams sent by Aaron Hersh flld and attorneys to wlitnesses who gave revolting testimony against his wife. Mrs. Aaron Hershfield was then called to the stand. She said Hershfield got acquainted with her through giving her eister typewriting. He called on her frequently. After a couple of months he asked her to marry him. Hhe re plied that she had known him too short a time. Hershfleld said if she refused to marry him he knew a way to compel her, and that way was to get her in his power. She ordered him to leave the house. That was the first and last time unkind words passed between them. Next day Hershfield asked her to for give him, and she did so. Illicit rela tions were commenced in August. About the middle of the month they went to Chicago to get married. She had never written him for money, but he paid out considerable to provide for her enjoyment. They occupied the same berth on the way to Chicago, and stopped at the Leland hotel, registering as Mr. and Mrs. Phillips, he explaining that L. H. Hershfleld was watching them. They occupied the same room. Next morning they were summoned to the Auditorium hotel by Mrs. L. H. Hershfield, whose detective discovered their whereabouts. Mrs. L. H. Hersh field said she told him not to attempt going with women. Aaron said he In tended to marry Miss Hogan and do as he pleased. Mrs. Hershfield said he would riot while she was living. Then they adjourned to the Leland hotel. Mrs. Hershfield struck Aaron with a cane. He reiterated the statement that he was his own boss. She broke an umbrella over his head. Mrs. L. H. Hershfield then insisted that they go to a lawyer's office and draw up a settlement. They finally agreed, in order to throw Mrs. Hersh field off the track. An agreement to separate was drawn up and signed by them all. Miss Hogan left for Chip pewa Falls, Wis., and Aaron went to New York. Witness said that the pre vious night Mrs. L. H. Hershfield came to her room and stayed throughout the night,' locking the door and putting the key under her pillow to prevent her tfrm getting out to carry out tie marriage programme. When she ar rived at Chippewa Falls she found tele grams awaiting her from Aaron. Tele grams and letters came every day. Finally, Aaron came from New York and together they returned to Helenas. Where they passed as an engaged couple. After several weeks they left again for Chicago, where they were married. They went to the justice's office in a carriage. She did not see any men "armed to the teeth" leading Aaron. From the Justice's office they went to a jewelry store, where he pur chased her diamond and plain gold rings. Returned to Helena, Aaron engaged rooms at the Helena hotel. He occu pied the same apartments and did not sleep on a lounge, as he testified. Aaron told her his brother had not spoken to him since his marriage, except to call him frightful names, and he was urged to leave her. A day or two later Aaron came in very much depressed and said "the 'old woman' (Mrs. L. H. Hershfield) has returned." Witness asked what dif ference that made. Aaron said "You do not know that woman's temper." Next day he came home from the bank sick, and said his brother and sister-in law were driving him crazy. Mrs. L. H. Hershfleld said she would never let him live with her. Aaron said the "old woman" wanted his money to go to her children. Aaron was sick all night and she attended him. She herself was ill next day. Hershfield went to the bank and soon came back, saying his rela tives had been at him again. They went down to lunch together. Aaron then went to the bank, say ing he would return at once. He did not come and she went to the bank. She met L. H. Hershfleld. Hershfleld was in a great rage. He told her she only wanted his money, and that it was Impossilble for Aaron to think of living with her. Aaron had left the city and would never return. She went up to Aaron's room, on the second floor of the bank building, and found Aaron in a room with Mrs. L. H. Hershfield, watching over hint. His sister-in-law demanded that she leave the room. She refused. Mrs. Dell Hershfleld called on Hershfield to assert his man hoadl. He replied that he could do nothing with the woman: she had about driven him crazy. Returning to the hotel she found the room in cotn fusion, her husband's belongings had be'en taken, and her trunk rifled of all letters and trinkets he had sent her. When she left Aaron's rot.t, he asked: "Mary, can't I see 1)11l for t minute?" Mrs. Mrs. ilershfleld replied that he had seen her for the last time. From the hotel she hastened back to the' bank, but Aaron hadl been taken I, tihe. depot and left the city.

Out in All Their Brilliancy at the San Fran isco Horn Show. HNn Franclsco, Nov. 28.-Han Fran rlsco's first horse show is a prono,,ncl nuccess. This morning the doors of tih. great Mechancs pavlllion where thrown open, anlt by 9 o'clock several hlundr'ed Ieople had entered and wetre looking down upon the tan-bark arena, upon which thoroughbreds valued at tabu lous sums pranced and fretted. The show b,.gan with a parade of draft horses, followed by ponies, stallions and trotting horses In the order named. Thei afternoon opened with an eahibitlon in the arena of draft mares, and then came coaching stallione, saddle horne.s and roadsters. The evening show opened with an exhibltol distinc`tiveily western. An old time wagon train camen rattlingK Ilnt the ring. The two heavy wagons, one tralllling behind the other, were drawni by twelve mule teams and a span of heavy horses, which were at the wheel. Two hardy, sun-browned "mule skinners" managed the outfit as handily as any of the swell whips who (amr. afterward did their tandems or four-in-hands. This wagon train was the outfit that came, overland from Fresno, 220 miles, with ten tons of dried raisins. After the mules, camp an ex hibition of Jumpers, then several fire engine teams, and finally tihe, event of the evening, the parade of four-la hands. In the evening show, however, horses played but a second part. Ban Fran clco's swagger society felt in duty bound to foldlow the example-gt lle smart society of other hors. The result was an exhlL raiment and stunning wety that put magnificent speelmenes of horse flesh rather at a disadvantage. The equine display, however, would be a credit to any country. Among the great thoroughbred stal lions shown are Salvator, king of the turf; Tenny. his away-backed competi tor; imported Sir Modred. the year's leading sire: imported Islington, full brother of England's great Isinglass., and Algona, sire of Flying Jib. Among other celebrities are Firensi, queen of the turf; Bessie Jane, Middleton, dare of Flying Jib, and Rey el Santa Anita. CHINA SUPPLIANT. Sues for Peace at any Prie, and Must Have It. Washington, Nov. 28.-China has suc cumbed to the inevitable and has sued for peace. And her proposal will be pre sented to the Japanese goverapnent through the United States mlni iu at Pekin and Toklo, thus promisiint* ter mination of the war, as a result, i4part at least, of the exercise of the %ood omces of the United States. It is not possible at this time to learn the lrms of China's proposition, as handed to Minister Denby, but it is probable it provides for but two concesdons money indemnity and relinquishment of the suserairrty over Corea. It is im probable that the first tender will be accepted by Japan, as such overtures are rarely accepted, but this proposi tion will open the way to a counter offer of terms by Japan, through Minister Dun. and the negotlato if suceua s ful, and if they follow the usual course, will lead. first, to a truce under proper guarantee, or preliminary agreement. to cease hostilities, and finally to the signature to a definite treaty of peace. Che Foo, Nov. 28.-Chinese fugitives state that the Japanese sacked Port Arthur, shooting old and young, and that pillage and murder were supreme three days. The dead were barbarously maltreated, heads and noses being cut off and nameless atrocities committed. Japanese soldiers scoured the country for days and killed all the Chinese they could find. The fugitves say all the streets of Port Arthur, as well as the harbor, are filled with dead bodies. LI IlUNG Bl HOUlD BE HUNfG. If All the Altegtions Made Against Him ;A True. London. Nov. 28.-According to dil patches from Shanghal, a great sen.a atlon is caused by a memorial from the throne. signed by over 120 high of ficials Impeaching lA Hung Chang and charging him with corruption, pecula tion and deception. The memorial also says Li Hung rejoiced at the Japanese victories, and prevented the Chinese achieving success. He is said to have represented that China was preparing for war when he knew the contrary was the case. T.i Hung Chang is also Maid to be implicated with Prince Kung. the emperor's uncle and pree.dent of the admiralty, who was recently appointed dictator, &nd with Tatoat Wu, com* mander of the Chinese forces at Port Arthur. These officials are accused o0 high treason and of selling state secrets and wL. materials to the enemy. They are further charged with investing money in Japan, harboring treasonable designs against the Chinese empire and conspiring to procure the overthrow of China. The memorial demands the in stant punishment and dismissal of all concerned in the conspiracy.

Each was a big institution of Itself; together they will make the greatest financial Institution in the northwest. The de tails of the consoildatlon are not known as yet, beyond the fact that there will be a reorganization, enlarged capital and an entire new management, and that these details are to be arranged so that this new management may take hold early next week. The new Instl tution will be the First National bank of Helena, thus retaining the name of the pioneer bank of this city. It will occupy the fine quarters ti which tht present First National is lo cated, at the corner of Grand and Main streets. The officers of the new First National will be Ex-Gov. Hamuel T. Hauser, president; FI. D. Edgerton, vice presi dent. and George P. Cope, cashier. Gov, Hauser has been president of the Fira& National bank since Its organisation, and has seen it grow from an infant t, one of the great Institutions of thq country.

As head of the Helena National and the Second National at the sam€ time he brought both banks through the panic of 18N, and made the eonsolida. tion smoothly and safely in spite of the dangers which threatened al flna-. clal institutions during those troablous times.

The capital stock of the new FI National. under the terms of the con solldatlon, will be $800.000. and the un divided profits $200.000. The contribu tions of new money to the reorgaal First National will amount to a quart of a million dollars. This will give th new bank a cash balance of over th quarters of a million. It will have th largest cash reserve and the line of depositors of any bank in Hel ena. The general balances of the ne institution will be very Iltle less th $5,000,000. The consolidation was largel brought about through the influence o A. J. Davis, cashier of the First N tional bank of Butte, In connecti with James A.
