f ,i. S Washington, June 13. Tho debate In tha
1 1 ft' jR Senate to-d&y did not coma up In point of Inter-
Vif V est to that o( preceding days, DomocraMo Ben-
' IF' ntors had It all to thoraselTea: but the protective
It' t prlnclplo waa championed by one ot ttiem at
i K strongly as It could 'have ,beon by Mr. Aldrlch
' 7 f himself. It was Mr. Mcinery of Louisiana who
t . 1 8 bad tbo courage to oppoio all his pajtyjissocl-
$ r atcs and to Juitlfr the vptos which h8 has been
. & giving on the side ot protection. It was his first
Kfc I speech In the Senate and that fact lent ad-
jfe I dltlonarkntercst to W li was; curious to see a
j dozen Republican Beriatora seated In the area In
)t i front of whoro Mr. McKnery stood, and listening
" to.hira with strained attention aa he attacked
8. dc.Qant.ly his Democratic associates and declared
., i that he would Tote for any measure that would
i j bring prosperity to bis State, regardless of party
. principles. The speech was followod by a voto
flj 6 on the amondment offered by Mr. Jones ot
if if Arkansas to strlko certain words out ot the
"& . sugar' schedule, the effect ot which amendment
j ? would be to diminish slightly the profits of the
" t sugar roflners, and the amendmentwos defeated
','! S by. a majority of three only.
'& !. Another amendmentwos then offered, the f-
ti i feci of which would be to have a uniform duty
ft . on all sugars, whether raw or refined. This
&" i, nmcncTnient was offered by Mr. Lindsay (Dem.,
B. t '"' ani WBS n(lTocftt"l by him and, Mr. Caff ery
'!& ifk (Dem., La.). No voto was roachod when tbo
'C- tlmo oomo for adjournment, but notlco was
$? I' given by Mr. Morgan (Dem., Ala.) of an amend-
. ' ment Imposing a tax of -per cent, on profit
y : made in buying and selling stocks and bonds.
fe The debate was opened by Mr. Vest (Dem.,
I ' j Mo.), who challenged Mr. Allison, In charge of
3 , the bill, to stato cloarly nnd unequivocally tho
S effect of tho amendment adopted yesterday to
i t tli'd sugar schodulo. Ho (Mr. Vest) asserted tbnt
if , It largely lncroasod tho protection given to the
Ik , Sugar Trust Tostlmonv had been read yostor-
fc ' doty from tho principal oftlcors of tho trust that
5', the trust was now making 21 per cont. net on
te Its watered capital. Ho had charged that the
2- ' legislation gavo to that monopoly such an
3 ' enormous Increase, nnd tho Senator from Iowa
, f (Mn'Allison) had replied that the amendment
fi did' give an Increased protection If tho dls-
' criminating duty on bounty-paid sugar wus In-
;,i ; eluded in the ostlmato, but that otherwise there
fc was no lnoroaso. Not onco had tho Senator from
W I Iowa undertaken to toll the Senate the effrct ot
J t the amendment If tho export bounty clause
8 t were kept in the bill, lly what sort of legerde-
3.. F? main, Mr. Vest asked, had tho Senator oxcludod
iT K that export clauso I Experts might be wrong,
&" F, BetnYtorstnlghtbeln the dark nnd might ring
I; log-bells as much as they plonsed, but tho specu-
S i lators In Wall street know what this legislation
V' f- meant. Sugar stock had been selling at 11H
M$ p whett tho caucus amendment was reported and
El a its afterward it was selling at 121. Did any-
Bj .' bddy believe that thooe Wall street speculators
W.t. dldiottknow what the protection to the trust
Ur was I - He had heard but one excuse for that
' enbrmous and outrageous legislation. and that'
r 1 was thb statement made yesterday by tho Sen.
I ' ator from Ioa that the object was solely for
Wik the purpoir of prospering the great agricultural
nl industry of beet sugar. That Industry was pros-
Hli purlng now. Ho repented what he had said the
J Bit other day, that thcrowns ono class of moo who
tW understood the effect of this legislation.
IMih ', llr. Mrliiery, (Dcui.. Liu), the ono Democrat
imtt. who. has been voting regularly with tho Itepub-
'Mnl) llcaus on tho sugnr schedule, made his tlrst
f-Wv speech In tho Senate In defence of hlsnctlon. He
-, said that a woreo trust than thn Sugar Trust
)T wi3 the Great Aiucrlon Cotton Company, that
Hi' i. cnnirollcd tho new nrocers ot baling cotton to
j '' the Injury of tho cotton planters, while the In-
H , tcrcsts of the sugar proilucera of tho United
IH i States went hand In liimd with tho Interests ot
! , the Sugar Trust. Ho went on to discuss In detail
IH , the particulnrs of the sugar Industry, his desk
tm being covered nith siHieltnonsot various grade.
B ,V by which he illustrated bis argument, his pur-
m poso )clng to show that If tbobo who opposed
;v tbo srninr schedule should succeed, the effect
X, would oo to stifle the sugnr cano industry of
Louisiana, nnd sugar beet intorcsts all over tho
ff '" country. Ho gave tho ngicregato importation of
T ' sugar for tho last Bix years at 31,870.000,000,
V i and argued that that enormous amount could
"I p have been kept at home, os sugar could be pro-
t"1 ' duced In thirty-three States of tho Union. The
:, manufacturer ot beet Biignr to an amount equal
! .. to the raw sugar now Imported by the sugar rc
" 4' flncrs would require tho erection In thM
m gi country o( &30 factories, at n cost of
B s S150.000.000, nnd there rould be no doubt
M '. ' that with proper protection those factories
B ' ould bo established. With tho vast interests
B v ; which thaStntoof Louisiana had In thccultira
m ; tlon of rlco nnd sugar. In htr biw mills and her
- v saltmines, . is there, ho asked, any reason for
v doubting that the Democr.itlc party of thnt
B l. State was committed to protection I He had
) ') gone before the nominating caucus in Louisiana
WM x and had oxpros-"' those views, and not only had
IBS -f ( there Leen no dls icnting voice heard, but his
WM li statement hiul bveii (according to newspaper re
wVff i ports) received "with an outburst of applause."
Bl Ti ' Mr. McKnery charged Democrats with incon
H JS ' BlsNncy In favoring protcitlnn for local lntcr
IB; estswhilo opposing It for general Interests. If
IHj It was a good thing to protect tbo fruit and
- ( borax interests of Colorado, and to protect tbo
C i lumber Interests nf Georgia and South Carolina,
ftB I , why was it not equally good, ho asked, to pro
lyl : : toct the manufacturing Interests of Xew ork
IB ,- and New Kngland. and tha fanning Interests of
m i tho West I Ho declared for himself that he
H ' would, regardless of irarty principles, voto for
.' any moasuro that would bring prosperity to
B 1 Louislnna as Mel I ns to the whole country.
H f , Diverging from the turifl to tho tlnnnrlnl ques-
i. ' tlon. Air. McKnery stated, hi his tielief, that
1 ' ' tlicro would bo no restoration of lonHilctiie and
1 V prosperity until the mints wern opened to tho
K ' free nnd unlimited coinngo ot silver.
H ; Mr. McEnerj spoke for nearly tnn hours, and
H, ,' then tho voto was taken on the amendment of
t '- .' fered by Mr. Jones of Arkansas to strike out of
HR' '- tha paragruiih the wonts "and on all sugars,"
K,r leaving it to read "on sugar above No. 10 Dutch
MB) tt standard in color, wblc)i has gone through a
;- . process of refining, 1.05 cents per pound." Tho
HvV' , amendment was rejected yeas, 21); nays, 32.
lp; Two I'opullst Senators (Allen and Hcltfcld) and
IH.y ' two silver Itepublicans (Muntle and I'ettlgrew)
'i ' voted aye and one Democrat (McEnery) voted
'' f no.
B .t , Mr.XIndsay (Dem., Ky.) moved to strlko cer-
' tain Words out ot tho supar schedule, so as to
M'h mako tha tux upon all sugar, whether raw or
1.' refined. 1.00 cents n pound. Ha argued that
hii under tho hill three dollars nnd n half of protec-
H'(? tlon would lx) given to every dollar's north of
Rr '; sugar raised in thn United States. Ho proposed
V)' tomakonowar upon that proposition. but the
hY point which he mado was that theSugarTrust
t' ' did not need and was not entitled to protection;
H and that. If It did need protection, the conditions
H, ' wero such thnt It ought not to receive it,
h ' Mr. Allen (i'oi).. Nob.) inuulrod whether the
H " Sugar Trust could not ho dissolved by the Gov-
Mfl '. eminent undor a writ of nun warranto.
IsW f Mr. Ilnar (Hep., Muns.) intimated that such a
n 2 writ could not bo applied by the Government to
hi j tho Sugar Trust, as It was a State (New Jersey)
IK ky corporation.
m ' . it "Does tho Senator from Massachusetts prn-
M '. ' K f ' tend," Mr. Allen asked. " Hint its charter can-
Ji I , f not be dissolved whin It monopolizes Interstate
n ! ' , trade and commerce I"
v . " 1 do not pretend uny thing," Mr, Hoar ropllcd
H li with an air of annoxincf. It Is uncivil to ask
fh ' I mo whether I 'pretend' so or so."
tB V "I did not mean to offend tho Senntnr," said
ha) , i Mr. Allen. "I simply meant to give It as my
HI i opinion that there Is no question about tho
! ' power of tho Government to dlssolvo (.iich u cor-
RH i f.r poratlon, regardless of wliero It gets It churter,
' whenever It engages In lntcrnutlaual or inter-
! j , stnte.conimerco,'r
lBI Hi Mr. Lindsay" went on with his speech,
Hf , i ' and gave figures to show thnt, with tho
Hj '; prices jesteraay ot raw sugar nnd refined
j - v ingar, the retlners had more than 23 'per
H , , cent, profit. In expUiution of tbo purpose of
1 j- ;' bis amendment, ho said thut as tho highest pro-
Hl ', i tectiou which the sugurproilucers would receive
M :, ', under the bill as it stood (on sugar testing III!
fl T. i , degrees) was 1,75 cents per pound, so hu pro-
H 1 ; posed that thut should be also the highest ro-
m f.l, lection which the sugar refiners would have;
BMft '. and that, ho suld, would be ample protection.
Ul . Ho confessed his Inability to comprehend tho
Hl !' "labyrinthine figures" of sugar exports, and
VI J , said that In every tariff law there were always
g ,r, u , secret ad vuntuges tothaHugar TrUBt.
IsW f Mr. Lindsay read quotations (ram a speech of
afU ifi ex-Senator Sherman, "tho apostle of a protec-
R , J, ' tlve tariff," in which be referred to tho Sugar
l v Trust as a king, an emperor, an autocrat In
H 'I' trade, and used tbeso words; ''If the cotnbina-
g f' tlou is aided by our tariff laws they should be
1 j, promptly changed, and If necessary foreign
H '.'', competition, with all Its evils, should pe tuvlted
M ' k to the monopolized article,"
HI , " That." suld Mr. Lindsay, " Is what we ap-
i I peal tor to-day."
H ., ( Mr, Caffery (Dem., La.) supported Mr, LInd-
H , lay's amondment and said thut 1.75 cents a
V-l pound as a maximum duty on sugar was quite
fsufllcient, either for protection or for revenue.
' It was about 00 per cent, on the ordinary price
H II ot Louisiana centrifugal sugurs, the protection
WW under existing law being about 42 per cent. He
i !' was opposed to any additional protection to the
MH Sugar Trust. It was not entitled to It, With
H L i the mouey already made by it. It should retire
: , from th business of further extortion, further
If I i tyranny, and further oppression.
1, ' ' In the course of his speech Mr. Caffery ex
If I pressed his conviotion that the artificial stimu
li; V , J Istlngof sugar beet culture would bo a great
ji ; , evil To thoso engaged In It, because, as soon as
j; 1 the sllmulunt of protection was withdrawn, the
k H Indus try would foil; and ho instanced tha case
t '
of Oermany, where, he said, tha beet Industry
could not exist without Government protection.
The Senate at 4:30, without reselling a vote
on the amendment, adjourned till Monday.
Mr. Allen gavo notice of an amendment to tha
Tariff bill as follows:
" That all surplus derived by or under the
provisions of this act shall constitute an In
vlolablo fund for the payment of tho Interest
bearing debt of tho United States ns rapidly
n tho samo shall mature, nnd nny such
surplus shall not bo used for any other
purposo either temporarily or permanently,
and the same shall bo paid out as soon
as thero mar be a sufficient amount In the
Treasury to dtschargo any portion of the Interest-bearing
debt of the United Stales at the date
of Its maturity; and any deficit In the revenues
that may take placo or be created during tha ex
istence of this act shall be supplied by the Issu
ance nf legal tender notes under acts of Congress
now In existence, nnd by tho coinage of the silver
selgnorage In tho Treasury of tbo United States
at the present legal ratio of sixteen parts of
standard silver to ono part ot standard gold, and
in no other manner."

srhe Supreme Court to Decide Whether the An
ther r Ike famous Work Ha Copyright.
WAsmwoTOtf, Juno 12. Tho Supreme Court
will be asked to say whether or not Oliver Wen
dell Holmes had a copyright on his famous
work, "The Autocrat of tho Breakfast Toblo."
According to n decision by the Court of Appeals
for the second circuit ho had not, and tho appeal
of Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., ancillary execu
tor of the will of his father, from that decision
was docketed to-day. It will probably bo heard
at the nixt term of court. As such executor.
Judge Holmos brought suit for an injunction to
restrain George D. Hurst from publishing an
edition of tho book. Hurst defended on tho
ground that tho author had never legally se
cured a copyright, and tho court sustained blm,
dismissing the bill. , ,
It was shown that tho tltlo was deposited In
tho library Nov. 2, 1HS8, and a coDy of the book
Itself on Nov. 22. Subsequent renewals wero
socurod, extending tho life of the copyright
privilcgo until tho year 1000. nut It appeared
that tha work was published In parts, running
through the Atlantic Monthly rrom October,
1857, to October, 1858, nnd that neither tho
mngazlno nor the separate parts wero copy
righted. This, tho court held, was a fatal do
foct, tho law requiring thnt a copy must bo
deposited before publication. The contention
that thewhnlo book wns rnmcthlng different
from Its parts, nnd therefore ontltled to a copy
right, notwithstanding the previous publication
of tho separate chapters, tho Court said, was a
refinement ot distinction thnt the statute did
not wurrant.

Than tha Whole Bahjeet Was nrrrod to the
Plnanen CommitteeThe Planl In Favor or
Abroi-atlniT Ike Treaty Waa Hade by
Senators Nelson, Perkins, and Thurston.
WAanwaTOif, June 12. After threo and a half
hours' caucusing to-dny the Republican Sen
ators finally decided to rofer to the Finance
Committee and the threo " assistant members "
appointed for service during the Tariff bill
campaign only all questions relating to the
Hawaiian reciprocity treaty. There wore
two sessions of tbo caucus, one bofore the
Benate mat and the other after it adjourned,
and they were In large measure duplicate per
formances. Tho two general propositions under
consideration wore the abrogation of the treaty
and Its continuance undor present conditions.
The fight In favor of the abrogation of thotreaty
was mado by Mr. Knuta Nelson of Minnesota
and seconded by Mr. Perkins of California and
Mr. Thurston of Nobraska, Mr. Nolson has been
a consistent advocate of this policy from
the beginning of the agitation of the question
when the bill was under consideration In tho
Committee on Ways and Means. Mr. Perkins
had been regarded as a friend of the
treaty and In favor of Its maintenance
until within the past few days, while
Mr. Thurston's position was unknown. Ills
speech In the caucus, howover, waa tho prin
cipal one on that side, although Mr. Nelson made
n speech that was full of personal matters and
showed considerable feeling on his part.
Mr. Thurston said that while ho was In favor
of abrogating tho treaty, he would favor an
nexation of tho Islands when that question
came before the Senato for action. Ho said that
the presont attitude of the Republican party
toward tho sugar schodulo was Indofensiblo, and
that he could not Indorse the action of tho Sen
ato yesterday In tha adoption ot the caucus
schcdulo on sugar, which was in the nature of
voting a gratuity of five millions of dollars to
the Trust, especially If the present arrangement,
by which nine millions of dollars n year were
contributed to the Hawaiian Sugar Trust, was
continued. Ho was particularly Interested, too,
In tho development of tho beet sugar Industry,
and contended that the free importation of
Hawaiian sugars tended to Impede tho progress
of beet sugar manufacture in the Mississippi
Senator Nelson's speech contained a demand
that tho Government should deal with the
Hawaiian question upon a purely business
basis, asserting that It was ridiculous to con
tinue tha paymont of nine millions a year to tho
Hawaiian sugar producers for which tho United
States received no return. Mr. Nolson is under
stood to hold like opinions with thoso of Mr.
Thurston upon tho subject ot annexation.
Tho principal advocates of the continuance ot
tha presont condition of affairs were Messrs.
Davis, Chairman of the Commtttoe on Foreign
Relations, and Fryo of Maine, whose radical po
sition on things Hawaiian Is well known. They
wero assisted by Messrs. Hoar and Chandler
of Now England ana some of the Western Sen
ators, who favor both reciprocity and
annexation. Senator Frye's speech is said to
have been marked by all of that gentleman's
fire and directness of expression In dealing with
public questions, and Is said to have aroused no
llttlo enthusiasm among tho supporters of the
Various propositions wore mnde with a view
ot coining to some conclusion upon the subject,
but It was found impossible to reach a vote upon
mty of them.
Senator Allison, Chairman of tho caucus, sug
gested, somen hat in lino with Senator Frye's
motion, that the matter should bo left to tho
President for action, but expressing tho opinion
ot Congress that a modification of the treaty
should be secured.
Senator Perkins had two propositions to make,
ono to reduce the duty on Hawaiian imports by
one quarter, and tho other looking to tho abro
gation ot the treaty in case a modification ot It
were not received within twelvo months from
the enactment of the law. Senator Nolson
moved that the treaty be abrogated directly. In
accordance with tho provisions for that purpose.
Th mmliM nf tliM ,-a,tf-i,a hn.Ini. hmn.l
themselves not to make speeches in tho Senato,
found themselves unable to resist the temptation
to express their views at length behind closed
doors, nnd as a result of this Inability to reach a
conclusion. It was decided, as a dernier ressort,
to submit all of the propositions to tbe Finance
Committee, leaving them to formulate a policy
that will be ucientable to tbe Republican party.
This was perfectly satisfactory to tho friends
of the treaty, ns of tho members of tho
committee Messrs. Plntt of Connecti
cut and Tlurrows of Michigan had ex
pressed themselves in favor of Senator
Frye's proposition. Another caucus will bo
arid after the adjournment of the Senato on
Monday evening, at which tlmo it Is hoped that
thecommlttee will haven preposition to submit.
It is the belief that their recommendation will
bo adopted by the caucus and be Incorporated
into tho hill.
Mr. Hatrb. tho Hnwoilan Minister, called at
the Stato Deuartment this evening in company
with Lorln M. Thurston, formerly Minister ot
Hawaii here, and Joseph P. Smith, Attorney
General of tho republic, who were sent to
Washington to work for annexation. Their
visit. It was presumed, was in connec
tion with tho reported new treaty. Judge
Day, the Acting Secretary of State, with whom
they had a conference, would not talk about tha
visit further than to say that It hod nothing to
do with the threatened trouble between Hawaii
and Japan. Ono of the three callers said the
visit wus of a friendly character.
The Dancer or Comraualcatlns; Disease Again
Crgrd In Canada.
ToitONTO, Juno 12. There was a remarkable
discussion on the alleged unsanitary use of tho
wlno cup at the Lord's Supper In the Toronto
Methodist Conference t onlay. One layman said
some churches bad three or four cups. If Meth
odists were to celobrate the sacrament In tbe
manner In which Christ did, they would have to
go further back and, instead ot going to tbe
communion rnil or remaining In their seats,
would have to lntroduco couches and He on each
other's bosoms.
Some medical delegates condemned the use of
a common cup, holding that it was a danger to
society through its liability to distribute disease
germs. Ono doctor asserted that tho opinion of
tho professors was that receiving the cup In that

Ihe Crime Third Mute Amman Tried
to Kill lllm Baiiorman -fleboPs Btory.
Early on the morning of Deo, 37 last. In the
midst of a dead calm, with the moon shining
brightly and the sea undisturbed for ratios
around, John Christiansen, first mate of the
500-ton bark Justine H. Ingersoll, was killed by
a fellow Baiiorman and his body thrown over
board. The murder was committed when the
bark was about eight da) a out and oil
the east coast of Bermuda. Tha second
mate, Paul Blanchard. a Frenchman, and
the one foreigner In tho crew of Swedes
which signed for a long voyage with the
Ingersoll early in December, Is accused of the
crime. As TriE Son told last week, ha was
brought from South America In the United
States ship Yantlo, nnd Is now In Norfolk. He
will be put on trlnl In Boston as soon as he
reaches there. Meanwhile, threo witnesses,
sallormen on the Ingersoll, are In custody In
this city, and will be sent on to Boston to-morrow.
Tho details of the murder reached this city
yesterday, when the Ingersoll sailed into tho
lower bay. The United Statos authorities got
Instructions from Fortress Monroe early In the
morning what to do when the Ingersoll arrived,
tho Ynntic having put the prisoner ashore there
on Friday night. Deputy United States Mar
shals McAvcncy, Fitzgerald, and Churchill went
down tho bay In a tug, and when tho Ingersoll
rcachod (Juarautlne went aboard and arrested
Acting First Mnto Ibort Amnion, a half brother
of tho murdered man; Acting Second Mato
Thomas Nichols, and Louis Larsen,able seaman.
The Justlno II. Ingersoll sailed from Boston on
Doc 10 with a miscellaneous cargo in her hold
and a deck cargo of wood. Sho carried a crow of
eight mon. Including her officers, and was bound
for Montevideo. Tho first fowdsysof tho trip
wero uneventful. Tho men got along together
well and tbora was harmony among tho officers.
First Mate Christiansen and Third Mate Amnion
had sailod for threo succcsslvo years with Capt.
Petersen and so had a couplo of tbo meu.
Blanchard, the second mate, was a now hand,
who had been shipped at Boston on tho recom
mendation of another deop sea skipper, a friend
ot Capt. Petersen, He was a silent man nnd a
hard worker, but had llttlo In common with the
crew or other olllcors, being of different birth.
On the night of ths murder Capt, Petersen
tumod In shortly after midnight. He had stood
tho first watch. First Mato Christiansen had
the mid-watch, and Jllnnchard and Nlchol were
with him. Third Mate Ammon was to take tho
morning watch and Capt. Petersen bad left
orders to bo called at 0 o'clock. It was about 3
o'clock when Capt, Petersen was awakened by
some one rushing In his cabin and shouting:
"The mate's overboard! Tho mate's over
boardl" "Bring her aroundl" ordered the Captain; and
Jumping Into some clothes he ran on deck. A
number of seamen, who hod been awakened by
some ono shouting tho news down tho forecastle
hatch, were ulready there. Away aft wero
Blanchard and Nlchol. Rushing back to them,
the Captain demanded:
" What's the matter here !"
" The mato's ovcrbo.rd," said Blanchard. " I
was forward nnd beard a cry. When I camo
back aft, tho mate was gune. '1 ben I heard an
other cry from the water and 1 knew bo was
overboard. I sent Nli hoi to spread tho alarm."
Nlchol. who was trembling like a leaf, said
nothing, and the Captain, In the excitement of
tbe moment didn't wnlt to question him. Two
boats were lowcml and for a long time the men
rowed around, hut couldn't find the Bllgbtost
trncc of the missing man. Not a cry came from
the water after the Captain reached the deck.
When it was evident that the male could not
be rescued, Capt. Petersen put tbe bark on her
course ngnin and went back to bed, leaving
Blancbara and Nlchol as the nraUh. He did not
regard tho occurrciuo as suspicious, thinking
that Christiansen might hnvo been drunk and
fallen overboard.
It was 8 o'clock, nnd tbe sun was well up, when
ijapi. t'cierscu came on ucck again, iiiancnara
and Nlchol had gone to bed, and tbo Captain was
trying to figure out bow so faithful a seaman as
Christiansen had always shown himself to be
could nuvo got drunk on his watch, when a sea
man came to him and asked him tn step aft.
"Thero are some things which tho men think
you ought to see," hn said.
The things w ere a lot of red stains on tbe lum
ber making up the deck cargo. An attempt had
been made to wipe I hem nnny, but there woe no
mistaking their character.
" Is there anything mure I" asked tho Captain
Tim senmnn led tho Captain around Into a
small crevice tn tbo lumber pile and showed him
a great iool of blood. No attempt had been
mado to wipe this away. Capt. Petersen gave
ono long glance nt the blood and then ordered
tbe senmnn to call nil bands on deck at once.
Ho walked to the foremast himielf uud waited.
"Men," ho suld. when the crew nnd olliccrs.
Including Ulnni hard nnd Nkhol, who bad been
hauled out of lied, cinio forward, "there has
been murder done on this ship, and I mubt know
who did it. You nil know who Is nil-sing, nnd I
tell you now thnt ho was murdered."
There waa dead Hllcnce. Not a man mode a
move or said u word.
" Well," s. lid the I'antain, "will no one who
knons who did this thing come forward nnd
speak I"
No one volunteered a word, and tho Captain
ordcreu them all hack to their duties, and went
himself to tho cabin. Pretty soon two nf the
men camo to him und naked that more bo
done to find out who had killed Chris
tiansen. They represented tho crew, they
said, an', intimated cry strongly that
it must lni o been one of the. two men who were
on tho mate's watch. Tho Captnin told them
that nt Ihe time bo could do nothing, but thnt
the truth was bound to couio out before tho
voyage was over nnd that the guilty ones would
be punished. During the rest of that day Sea
man Nlchol's life wus mado such a bunion to
him tli.it lie resolved to tell all ho knew or tho
death of Christiansen to tho Captain. This is
the story he tu'd. ns repeated by tho Captain to
aSfN reporter yesterday:
" I was nwiiy for'urd and walking about when
I beard lllnnchiird calling me. Not fire minutes
before 1 had left Blanchard aft. As I camu
for'ard I passed Christiansen going aft. As I
didn't soe him again I supposed ho was tnlklug
to Blanchard. When I hourd Ill.inchard calling
I ran back and saw him standing over a mans
body, I was frightened and couldn't tell who tho
man was. lie was on his fnco and very iiulet.
'Iend me a linnd.' suld lllanrhard, 'this fellow's
dead and I want lo push him overboard.' ' Who
Is It V I asked. "Nonnnf j our business,' he said,
so I told him I wouldn't havo n hand In any
work thnt looked dirty unless Mr. Christiansen
or tho Captain ordered It. Ho Jumped right
across tho body at th it and shook a Knlfo cov
ered with blood under my nose. 'Tako one end,'
he said, ' or I'll kill you.'
"I was badly frightened and oboyod him.
When be turned tho body over tholtghtof tho
moon fell across the face, and 1 saw It was
tho mate. Tho whole hick of his head was
crushed In as though ho had lieon hit from
behind with a belaying pin, und blood ciimn
from a wound in his left breast, where I
thought ho had been stabbed. I nearly
dioppod tho body when I saw It was lliomato.
but Blanchard ordered mo to bo steady,
and I managod to get enough strength to
gether to throw my end over tho rail, lllanrh
ard cleaned up somo blood stains from thu deck,
uml then told mn tn Htireiul thn nitiarl.
that tho mate was ovcrlxmrd, I was to
tell anybody who asked me how ho had fallen
that I didn't know, but th.it 1 had simply heard
a splash and a cry from thu water. Thnt Is all I
know about tho mutter. I did not sco lllanihard
kill Christiansen, and don't Know how tho mate
camo to his death. I know ho was dead, how
ever, when wu pitched him overboard."
dipt. Petersen nmdu an ofTnrt to keep this
story from the rest of tho ciew and suciecdod
for a day or so. Then Nlchol mnde a dean breust
of everything in the forecastle, and the crow
went to the Captain and demuudod that Blan
chard bo put in Irons. The Captain dccllnod to
Imprison Blanchard. becnuso he was short
handed, and tho men went uwny grumbling,
Up to this tlmo no ono had told Third Mato
Amnion, who was the dead man's half brother,
tho story told by Nlchol. Ono of the crew told
him, when thn Captain refused to Imprison
Blanchard, und, wild with rage, tho young man
took a revolver and went looking for tho second
mate. The crow backed him up, and when
Blanchard saw them coming ho begged for
mercy. His reply was n shut from Ammon,
which grazed his arm, Another shot followed,
and Blanchard started up the rigging as fast
as be could go. Ammon followed, and tho
men cheered him on. Four more shots
were fired at Blanchard, and then the revolver
was empty. Although slightly Injured In threo
places Blanchard scrambled down the rigging
again in among the men, who kicked him over
toward tbe mast. Amnion followed him down
aud rushed at him, snapping his empty revolver
In his rago. Tho men would havo grappled in a
minute, but just then Capt. Peterson came out
ot tbo cabin with a reolverin each hand. Ho
Jumped between Blanchard nnd the angry sea
men, levelled his revolvers at the men. and
cried out:
"Mon, this Is my ship nnd I'm master here.
Every man will got my protection and I'll Bhoot
down llko a dog any ono who lays a hand on this
man. If be Is a murderer ho will be punlshod
at tho proper tlmo. But there won't tie any
more killlngon this ship this trip unluss I do It.
The men retired before the Captain's revolvers
and determined front, but renewed their de
mand that Blanchard bo put in irons. This lima

The rest of tho trip wus uneventful, und when

Tho Hon. Thomas F. Hayattl, lately Amtuumv
dor to England, had n reception last night
nt tho National Clvlo Club, Brooklyn,
1-11 Montnguo street. Tho ilubhouso wus
crowded. Mr. Bayard arrived shortly before
1) o'clock. In company with Kdward M,
Shepard, whose Rttist he has Iwen slnco Frldny,
He was lmmodlatcly ushen 1 Into Iho rcci tdloa
room, whero his picture hung on tho uml KaP.
landed with flowers and draped with Americas
flags. He was Introduced amid great applatna
by Frederic W. lllnrlchs, President of the club.
Among other things, Mr. Bayard snld:
"Perhaps thero Is a distinction between good
feeling and diplomacy which I do not clearly ap.
predate, and I can only any that I hara necr
essayed to divide tho two. But as the only
diplomacy I ever professed or ever pnvtleed
was tbe diplomacy of slmplo good faith nnd
honor, good feeling naturally ran In the same
current nnd novcr was forgotten. When Ben
jamin Franklin, John Adams, John Jay, nnd dj
Henry Laurens slgnod the treaty with George 1
III. In April, 1783, they ptcfaccd that inomen-
tousnet by tho words which by 5 our laior I I
will read to you: 1

venience aro foind by experience to ferni ihs only

These words were In substance repeated In tha
prcnmblo to every aubsc'iueiit agreimont we
havo mado with Great Britain doun lo the pres
ent day. Therefore, you will perceive tha' I nnj
and certainly am endeavoring always to be the
representative, not of the paBtlons, Jmi
ouslcs, and animosities of my countrymen,
or of tho ambitions, prejudices, or self

representative of the ulTcctlons and mutual in
terests and not thc passions of tho people of ths
great nntloiiB lietween whom such ufllnillcs,
sacred, moral, and Intellectual exist.
" I am glnd to statu my belief that although it
has been unwisely and outwardly delayed and
obstructed, jet the spirit of Christian civiliza
tion which Inspired the treaty of general nrbitra

" But w ith no narrow party purposo and as
suredly with no design of personal prefermeni
or ambition. 1 nsk my countrymen, what Is the
absolute esM-ntlal of n free and happy state
in this era of the world's advance from bar
lwrism to a hlsh civilization I Tho right
of property exists and thc legal owner is
occurcd by public general laws in Its use and to
ilsposv-,ion. but within a century the char
acter und nature of property, the wealth of In
dividuals aud nations and i-opulatlous has
been greatly transformed, and land and herds,
tbe pecus of ancient Runic, no longer form
the pecuniary value:, which coraposo modem
wealth. Tbo tplril of civilization has grown
out of law, and jaw has created obligations
which take tho form of contracts, written and
unwritten, in iiititnti- variety, nnd the per
formance of such obligations, the power of
the enforcement of such contracts, is the corner
stone of modern property, of modern wealth,
from tbe smallest Integer to Its most vast con
solidation, from thc wages for the simplest
mnnunl labor to the pa ment of a national debt.
And this right to contract, this obligation to
executo contracts, this keeping of bargains be
tween man and man, this remedy nnd Its com
pulsory recognition, creates the keystone, the
corner stono of mixlcrn wealth in ull its forms,
and is called credit.
"It is essential, and no super-tructurc, politi
cal, tlnaiul.il, mural or material, ran permanent
ly oxit on an other has!?. Has public credit in
this country beiii ns-Jiiledf Have political
organizations been openly organized and theo
ricn of nctlon mowed which threaten to under
mine all forms of credit by discarding the
standard of nnd measure of value for all
human contracts upon which the property,
tho wealth of the world, in great or small
sums or amounts, exists I Unhappily, such ques
tions must be answered In tho affirmative, not
in wrath nor In objurgation, not with vindictive
but with manly gravity and sincere determina
tion tondmlt tho truth, to face it. and to summon
to our aid every higbcrniul better impulse of con
science, of patriot ism, of morality nud religion, to
follow those laws of reason, duty, and polltii a!
hr.ilth tbnt shall st rcngt hen thc foundation o.' ths
welfare nnd h.ippincjsof every man, woman, and
child who lives under the Government of ths
United States. If I nm right, and who can
doubt it. In thus Insisting upon n secure basis
for our Government, then it behooves the people
of thc I lilted Slates to sec to it that no po.iotra
hostilo or unfavorable to tho great nnd essential
end of civ Hired society are permitted to grow
