Two members of the committee dissented. 1 , j Mr. Cochran offered oa a substitute a rule pro ! j Tiding for evening sessions on Monday and for no sessions on Saturday. He said that the ma j Jorlty had no right to fix upon this rule without I, consulting the minority, which had not attempt It ad to filibuster. r President Choata said that the new rule had, II In fact, been proposed by tho majority, which II felt itself In a large measure responsible for the work of the session. He himself had been In a I large measure responsible for Initiating the rule, ' and he felt that he must urge It In accordance II with his duty as President of the Convention. II The Convention owed It to the people to finish In III. the time fixed bv law. After Sept. 15 there would be only seven weeks within which the f people might consider the amendments. Only I Ave weeks remained of the session. A week of t that would be devoted to revision. This left ' only four weeks, twenty-four days, or 104 hours, j, for completing tho enormous task It had to per , form. The Convention this week had had an experience with the cities article which showed I how much discussion would be needed for the I disposal of the other Important amendments to 1 I come.

Ill advised remarks If- had been made to the effect that the Convention t i p was frittering away its time. He appealed to Ilk ' the newspapers to say that the Convention had III done Its work faithfully, and had performed as 11, much work as any previous Convention. The ! IIS i stories that it had been wasting its time were I ;v '- slanderous. There would be plenty of time to i lj dispose of all the amendments. It would be i ,. ! cruel to oblige the delegates to stay during Mon U day and Saturday. IfH Mr. McKlnstry, who lives In Chautauqua, tn- llj vored the rule as reported.

K i Mr. Smith of New York city said it was not IS neoeasary for all the members of the Convention (Hi to be present all the time. The Convention was ' I liberal with its excuses.

Oanzalle de Neu sndonndMr. Rubens, the attorneys of New York engaged to defend the recent Vice-President of Sahador, Antonio Kzeta, Ocn. Colcheco, Oen. Kolonos, and Lleut.-Col. Clenfuegos, the refu gees aboard the Bennington, have arrlvM here. They expect the Bennington to arrive to-morrow. The attorneys gave their version of the case, with what they expect to do, a follows: "The Vice-President and his three officers took refuge on the United States steamship Bennington off Llbertad. They asked afterward to be transferred to one of the steamer of the Pacific Mall Company, but the Provisional Gov ernment, at the head of which were their ene mies, made an official demand on the United States for them, charging them with common crimes. They did this because no other charge could be trumped tip, for the Ezetas and their followers had been defeated while trying to up hold Uie then existing Government and sup pres a rebellion. "The Government had not then been recog nized hy the United State Government as a lawful Government, which, therefore, could not entertain the demand. We will claim that the ex-Vlre-Presldent and the offlters are detained unlawfully ngalnst their will. Tills will bring out the theory of the detention, and it will de xelop one of two things, either the United Mate Is holding them absolutely without war rant or else it has recognized the Government and Issned the warrant. "The latter course hn not been taken, so far a we hae heard. We were to be notified promptly hy the Washington authorities In case anythinu- was done. On the arrival of the ship here with the refugees aboard, we will make a formal drmaml for them, and the hearing, we presume. wilt take place In the United States Circuit Court. We hold that there Is no other side to be considered, under all the circum stances, and therefore question the right of the Salvadorean Government, which Is not et recognized, to make a plea there: that I to say, to be represented by an attorney." The attorneys say that even should this posi tion with Its ramifications be unlawful, which they do not admit, they have yet other grounds on which to be beard before the refugees could be sent back. To send them back, they say, would simply result in their death. 3WS. 1'AltAX tiTErxS.S SUED. Her Former Hotter Katern Holt for SW.OOO (tor Defamation or Character. Newport, Aug. 10.

VINCENT BARKER'S BLOW. rrK xeam.t Ktf.rn ritr aox or ACTVARY IfTAXItEX. The I.nd Was Asenalled for Ressonslnttlna with Barker for rteklns Ills rather Berrlea-A ITarrant Ont for Itnrker. A tommon complaint made by the residents In the vicinity of New Rochelte Is that thero I In sufficient protection afforded to them In their property rights. A certAln class of residents that have lived there a long time have come to regard themselves as privileged to trespass and even to steal, and any attempt to convince them to the contrary I likely to result In physical harm to the would-be convlncers. In Pelham vllle, near New Rochelle, there has been a great deal of trouble lately. Now the village has become aroused over an alleged assault by Vincent Barker on a son of William T. Standen, the actuary of the United States Life Insurance Company, and Ills prob able that the matter will end disastrously for Barker, as nearly all the other residents of the place are backing up Mr. Standen In his efforts to bring the assailant to account. That part of Pelhatnvllle known as Chester Park is owned by Mr. Standen. whose house Is near Its edge. Within view of the house I a large cultivated field belonging to Mrs. Standen, In which grow fruits and lierrles. So popular Is this with the children of the village that tlio owners have been able to get very little fruit from It for their own use. On Thursday afternoon, a Mrs. SUndrn was sitting on the veranda, she saw a man with a large tin pall go down the road and turn In at the field where tho heirlm were. While Mrs. Standen does not grudge the children of the vil lage any fruit they may want to pick and eat, she does draw the line at hating people goto her property with palls which they Intend tn fill from her bcrr patch. Culling her 10. ear-old I son George she said to him "Some strange man ha Just gone Into our berry patch with a iinll, George. I wlsn )cm i would go down and tell him we want those ber I rle for ourselves." I George set out for the field, and with him went an 11 -year-old boy called Jimmy. The Standensdn not know his last name. The two lsijson Hearing the field recognized the man us Vincent Barker, and Jlmm) said to his com panion: " You'd better not n) anything to him or he'll half kill you. Nobody das'n't say anything to the Barkers here." " Well, he's got no right In our field," said young Standen. sturtlll). "I'll ask him to go out, any w ay, and If he won't go then we'll go back," While Jimmy kept at a respectful distance, George walked up to the man who was picking berries and said : "This Is our field, and my mother sent me here to ask you not to pick our berries. We need them all ourselves,'1 Without saying a word Barker. It is said, turned on the hoy and hit him n terrific blow In the facs with his fist. Then he seized n heavy stick from the ground and stood oter the boy, who bad fallen like a log, cursing and threaten ing him. Young Standen lay quiet where he had fallen, stunnedbytbe blow. Thootherboy, with an exclamation nf fright, started to run, and thus attracted the attention of Barker, who hurled the stick at him and started In pursuit. But Jimmy was too swift for themsn. who soon gave up the chase and returned to his victim. By this time Standen had recovered sufficiently I to get to his feet, and with his hands to his face, moaning with pain, was staggering toward the house. Barker followed him for a distance, threatening him with worse tf he ever inter fered with any of the Barker family again Finally he went away, leaving the boy to get home as best he could. Mrs. Standen. who had seen part of the occurrence, had run tn meet her son, and took him Into the house, hhe was greatly alarmed, and sent Immediately for a physician, who, after an examination, found that the boy's taw had been dislocated by Bar ker's blow. The physician said that the blow must have been a terrible one. and mlsht have must nave neen a lernoie one, ana might nave resulted In death had It landed a few Inches away, on the temple. Mr. Standen was sent for, and, on learning from Jimmy, his son's com panion, of what had taken place, he sent to East Chester and swore out a warrant for Barker. When the details of the assault became known In the village a great many people called on Mr. Standen and urged him to rush the case, all having some story tu tell of he reign of terror established by the Barkers. They warned Mr. Standen. however, that he was likely to be assaulted at any time by the Barkers. Mr. Standen is built like a man who Is able to take care of himself. " I will take chance with the Barkers," he told his neighbors, "aud If I meet Vincent Bar ker 1 won't be the one to get out of the way. They hate terrorized respectable people long t enough, and while I am not a fighting man, I don't propose to be terrorized or Intimidated." I He will bring a civil suit, as well as criminal action, against bis son's assailant. Young Stan den I still suffering greatly, and cannot speak or eat any solid food. Up to yesterday noon, Barker had not been found. XEITIIEIt MRS. ALOE R 3IEXTIOXED. Cyras D. Alger Leaven Ilia Property UU Itrolhern and Misters. The two wives of the late Cyrus D.

" The relatives of Mr. Alger have really no preftrence as to the two ladles who were his wives. We recognize that there must be one widow, and that one Is entitled tn a dower under the law. My brother had an undisputed right to marry In the first tasr. and no doubt in the second case. Dakota divorces are comparatively new Institutions, and few decisions concerning them have been mule here In New York." The lawyers for both women said they had not decided upon any course of action. rOt'-VO JlECKKllT'S DOWXrALh. He Attributes It to a Woman aad Ills Order (tor Patent Leather. Edwa... H.
