1HE MINOEITY ItKrOST.
Tho minority of tho oommitten held that In
acceptlns the p.tper Kent to the Senate by the
President as u treaty, mid by referring tlio
pamo to Its committeo, the Senate have virtu
filly waived any informality, if there is any, In
tho negotiation and slifnlmi of tho instrument,
nud that the only duty of the commlttf-n was to
consider and roport upon tho merits t tlio
treaty. U'liu minority believe that it is bolter
for our country that the treaty should bo rati
fied, and they ard equally convinced that tho
entlro class of our pootilo whontv actively en
caged in our North Atlantic llshlnt' Industry,
will be benefited by its rattllcntiou. Tlio
minority then enters upon a historical und
nrcumentativo consideration of tho llsheiy
question from tho treaty of 1818. and says:
Wa seem now to have reached a point whero we must
aeek to allay the growing bitterness of these differences
by a friendly, sincere, and mutually respecttul rnuMilcr

also w. must enforce our views by vigorous measures of

His quite clear that, until we are free from the obli
gations of the treaty ot 1S1N, they Art a part of our
supremo law. which no department ff our own tJoveru
luent can violate, without t totaling our Oonstltution As
the treaty is perpetual In the renunclatUiu ot our right
of common fishery, partitioned to us as uu appanage of
Iba country whose independence no Mitablished we
cannot, b any means .hurt ot u succest.ful war, rein
state the United hmtes, by our owu art, in tho ellloy,
mentor the right that waa so renounced. W. can iren

of ISIS, as to our fishermen, licensed tutoiihandtiadi,
by repealing It. but uobouy recnis to iilio sut U a
ioure of action, or to court the situation hi
which It would place both countries. The strug
gle. In such an event, would be at once
renewed under retaliatory laws (It tlile treaty Is reject,
ed). but every movement in suih a pulley would t. tery
costly to the people of both countries, and. as a rrobahie
result, would eventuate in war m we must ih o under
the treaty, and be rontUntly embroiled with the llritlsli
(Jovarnmentn. tolls prober luteroretution, or we must
rerorm that interpretation by a fair and Just agreement
with that Uorermnent. or we must repeal or abandon
It, and then re'y upon retaliation to redress our wrongs
Tho tindartUiied believed that the Interpretation of
that treaty, which has led to Its reformation In tho
treaty now before the Senate, u f,r i adynno 0f ln,.
thing that any American diplomat h. olllcluly demand
ad nf the llritlsli liovernmeut. nud will lead to a full and
amicable adjustment ot all troub es of the sort that have
lieretoforo arlaeu; and that it win open the way ror a
liberal and neighborly agreement as tusuchdlriereuces
as may arise hereafter, both ou the Atlautlc and 1'acluo
Tjita treaty doss not bind us to advance no claim here
after to iucreased commercial privileges In favor of our
Ushermen. The spirit In which It Is framed is one et
conformity. In our treaty relstlons, to the progressive
Interest and lieceultl.s"of the country, so that a further
Increase of commercial privileges would naturally result
from tho policy of both countries, as is shown by the
fact of the negotiation of this treaty, when such Increase
should appear ts be, as It will be, mutually advan
tageous. The minority finds an important precedent
for this treaty in tho arrangement offered by
Mr, rjeword in 1K0B to the liritlsh Government.
It declares that measures of hostility, olthur
oommorclal or actual, are not prtfeiablo to the
treaty beforv the betintu, and ftayt tint In the
negotiation of tho treaty the President has
only performed a plain duty In, tba interests of
all tho people ot the United Mates, und that

Tho strife In the Board ot Electrical Con
trol, whose meotlncs havo frotiuently boon of
pyrotechnlo lnterost, culminated yestorday In
tho secession of th .Mayor from that body and
hh announcement that he should decllao to
take any furthor part In tho nicotines ot tho
Hoard, It was tho Irrepressible conflict be
tween the Major and Commissioner Daniel I,.
Glbbens. Tho Mayor had evidently fronted
the battle from nfar, for he had been rather
brtisqtio nil tlio mornlnc. The Mayor's olllco
hnsbeon the moetinif placo of tho Hoard. As
soon ns It had met yestorday. Mayor Hewitt,
silting opposite Mr. Gibbons nt tho Hoard's
table, danced over thn printed minutes of tho
piovious mcotlni: nnd found that they con
tained n loni: letter ot Mr. Glbbens's rollectinc
on htm for not ordorlnu tho Commissioner of
l'uhllu Yi'orks to remove certnln telesr.iph
poles nnd wires, nnd that they did not contain
I1I1 own letter oxplalnlnc that tho Commis
sioner of Public 'Works hnd reportod to him
that thoro wr.s no money nvallablo to pay for
"Iprotost," exclaimed tho Mnyor. "ncainst
the publication in tho minutes of nn insultinc
tlocuraont addressed to the Mnyor and novor
rocolvod by him. Here, while my letter of
explanation Is suppressed, I llnd n commu
nication M'l'oad on the minutes, which Is a
lone deliberate, nnd In my opinion Imsropor
attack upon me."
Commissioner Ulbbens nnt on a requisition to tho
Poard of Apportlantnent the necessary amount might
bo transferred from some other appropriation to enable
Ihe Commissioner of FuMto Works to remove the tel
Major Hewitt The gentleman who knows so much
about the tlty government ought to know that this can
only be done at tho request ot the departlnout affected.
Mr. Glbbens started to sA something, but
the Mayor waved blm aside And bald impera
tively, "I do not propus to huvo auy mure of
these iiEfteeuily altercations."
A Keneral dWctwslou followed of tho question
whether tho 2!i.0til) appropriation ior the re
moval of encumbrances wan not available.
Thn Mayor held that it was not. and said that
ho did not sit to Usua Idle orders thnt could
not bo carried out. Commissioner Glbbens re
torted that the Mayor sat to oppose the work
of the Donrd. Tho Ma)nr hotly replied that ho
snt there with a knowledge otitis richts, nnd
hud steadily voted for all steps toward the ac
complishment of the purnosos ef the commis
sion. Ho declined to huvo any imputations
made upon bin motives, and added, " I am
tited of it. It must htop."
Mr. Clbbens I have the right to do it as a member ot
Mayor Hewitt Vot to make dishonest imputations.
Mr Ctbbcns He has not voted for auy resolutions, or
riven his moral snrpsrt. or that of tho dignity of his
olllc. an.t his respected age to tho wtrk
President Hess Hut jou must not go into the motives
cf tl e gentleman.
Mr liibheus 1 refer only to fact.
Mayor Hewitt viy acts aro matters of record, and
they do net support this attack.
Mr. Clbbens lhey do, and furthermore yon refused
and declinsd to carry out a resolution or tbi Hoard.
Mavor Hewitt And In a decorous communication,
which was suppressed, 1 explained the reason to the
Mr. Clbbens or that decorous communication f could
say much if 1 wav speaking of motives Instead of ink.
ingufl nls coat and helping in the work of the Hoard,
the Mavor hasobstructed it, nud it is new a vcar be
bin 1 wii-re it was twelve months ago Tho cempanl-s
are uut dolrg anything now. not even obevlng our rules.
Mr. Ileum flies minutes ere rcrtataly so nude
up uodersome one's direction (with a dark look at Mr.
(.tbbensl. and my letter was suppressed while this long
tommuLlcatloti Is spren 1 out with all its verbiage and
the opinions of a Mr. sonny. 1 don't kuov. who he Is.
Ho may be some very young person. Another severe
look at Mr. Clbbens.
I'rofldent Hess oxplntnod amiably that, as
far as hn know, the minutes were not made up
with any Idea of belnc objectionable,
A further discussion of the Jao.OOO appropria
tion for ramnvnl of oncumbrnnccs led tho
Mayor to say that tho Hoard ot Apportionment
stilt apart for particular purposes, such as tne
removal of n fence built by a woman to secure
privacy, nnd tho destruction of thu stands nt
i'ullon street and ilroadway. Mr. (lihbtsas le
pcatedly asked ir the Mayor hnd Riven any or
ders for the tomoMil of tho wires Instead of
asklnc the Commissioner of Public Works
whother ho had .money to do It with? Tho
Mayor explained sarcastically that ho under
stood what courtesy uud comity between pub
llc. ofllcera required if some persons did not.
Mr. Glhbens repoated thnt tho Mayor hnd not
mado the order, uud tho Mayor piotesiod that
tho conduct of tho meetlnes of tho Electrical
Hoard wcro n scandal and ridiculous. Mr.
Gibbons responded that ho would rnther be
ridiculous than reciennt to his duty. Tlio
Mayot's objection lo the minutes was over
ruled. :l to 1. and tho minutes wero adopted by
the same vote.
Mayor Hewitt then said calmly nnd with dljj
nltv: "1 feel bound to say that I consider that n de
liberate insult has been levelled nt the Mayor.
1 s.iy it without any foellnir. but under the cir
cumstances I shall decline heroafler to attend
any meetings of this Board. I was not mado a
member ot It briny own wish, and, thoucli I
have tried lo tlo my duty as a. member. I hnvo
not been ablo to Accomplish nnvthiuc. It Is
only by puttlnc myself in a very disncroeable
position that I can continuo to sit with the
lioaiil. I know of no rule that requires in tn
undorro the ordeal. I must decline to sit with
men who in my opinion havo not tho inbtiucts
The Mayor had rion to his feet by tha tlmn
ho reached tins slnrtllnp; conclusion, nnd hn
turned his back and moved away from tho
tublo to his desk, paying no beed to the only
spnkeo response, which wns mado by Commis
sioner Theodore Moss with 11 deop bass voice
and a deeply Hushed faco a follows:
"1 object to those remarks. 1 consider that
I have the instincts of a gentleman us much us
you have, and more."
President Hess looked a little more thnn half
niiirry, nnd Commissioner Glbbens clured n
little more fiercely than usual at the retieiitlnj;
fo:m of the Major, but neither said anythiuc.
Commissioner -Moss, ns thuuuh tlisappolned
tlmt nothinc was said, added:
" That letter was not suppressed. Kvery pa
per has in luted it. mid the Mayor knows It.
The biisincs-, of tho Commission was then
eontlnurd, tho Mayor busyins hlmoll nt his
own desk some dlsttmce away, llules and reit
ulalions adopted by tlio lioaid were read, with
some amendments projiosed oy Mr. Glbbens.
They contained frequent references to "tho
poles and wires flint thn Mayor has been 10
quested to remove." This was rend in aloud
voice each time. At tho ond of tho business
Commissioner Glbbens made n blttor speech
on the Mayor's withdrawal. Ho said:
He has attempted to make Iho Board and its employees
ridicnlous. He has prevented the execution or thelsw
he was charred with carr) tug out. He has acted In ap
position lu the Commission Ho has am er proposed auy
action or voted in ravor of it. buch a thing never enter
ed bis head
After n lone cntnlncun ot thlncs that tho
Mayor had not dono, durintt tho recital of which
tho Mayor loft tho room, Mr. Glbbens added:
Tliere never w as a man elected Mayor who had greater
opportunftit. Ho might have had It said that the poll.

Tho plan was to put Lilla under tho effect ;S (
of cliloniform, nntl Alice and hor undo at one S !
proceetlod to accomplish their part of tko deed, i

Cowlo went in a hurry to McQuald'a barn, SB,
where Tom, tho other nctor in tho trugio JU
driimn, was in roadiuoss with a fast horse ,B,
hitched to n wagon. They droro back to . 'Si
l.'owie's house, und while McQunld held the .MB,
horso Covvle and Alice bore tho body of tho In- IB,
i-euslblo girl from the little kltchon to tho wagon. J;g
She wns placed ou the front seat between the ? jH
two men. and Allcu took her plnco behind. Mc- ijjttt
Ouaid was tbe driver, llo drove rapidly away, ffi
tho plan being to take tho girl into tho woods toIIJ
und uorform an oporation and return tho same rfji'
night. No fatal conxequencos woro anticipated, s!B,
nccordlug to tho :;lrl's story. They drovo alonit rjisirt
toward tho eecludod clump of bushes whtco vjflf'
was selected to bo tho sccno of the wicked deed. SB a
Along thoy drovo, but suddenly und without Jll
nny warning the girl recovered consciousness (Sill
and broke out with n piteous cry. Again her -'!
cries rang out. and both men. Impelled by fear ' TtfJ
of discovery, clutched .it her throat. At loast :.?
so it anpoared to Alice on tho back seat, but; ivCS
this Is a point very likely to bo contested -iSB
by the dofenco. At till ovt-nts tho girl's 'NvI
cries stopped. The seal of sileneo was .flS!1
again impressed upon her lips, but It i -j,.
was thoibllonco of dot. ). With u despalrlnB Si
look upon thu blanched features ot hor mur- ""iBi
dered sister, Alico fell back in n, faint, but did '?!il
not swoon entirely nwav. Her htrongth ro- '.!!
turned after e. wliile, and the two men sought i "-'?
for means to conceal their crime To the corn .SB!
crib they bore the body. The undo tlod tho . g"
hands nnd feet, and with crent tlilllculty tha B.
two moti crowded tho body Into tho narrow
space whero, twenty days later. It was dlscov- S8'
erod by tho two young men. 'tIS'
Wliile the men wore hiding the body Alice aflB
snt in tho wagon holding tho reins nnd on tha tsfi1
lookout. The party drovo back In srd sllenco. &B
Covvle and Alice returned to thoir houso and
McCjuald met bis friends ns pruvloui-ly ronort- -tffi'
ed. It was Allen who camo ttinping down Vwb
stairs tovraid tho end of tho evening KJrj'
to give plausibility to hor story arranged 'rzl-
to be told, thnt Lilla left her house alone at -sli
that time. Several tlmos tbis Important Gov- -8:8'

to wnrrnnt thin in beliovini,' that thero was ',oi"
