Vabiiix0TON' July 8. Tho Trholo session of
! the Scnato to-day was given tip to tho Genoral
Deficiency Ull, which passed tho llouso on Uio
J ,tii 0( March lust, and which hit slnoo thon
i i,,, cromlod out by tho Tariff bill. Tho MIL
which contained 1115 printed panes, was dls
i' bokoiI of without any discussion or Motion un-
tlltho provision as to armor plato for tho threo
bittloshlpi was roached. That obstacle pro
Tented Its paissgo to-day.
After somo preliminary morning business,
th floneral Doflcloncy bill waa takon up, bttt
beforo Its consideration was begun Mr. Berry
ef Arkansas offered a resolution requesting tho
President to "domand tho release ot Ona Mol
ton, a native-born cltlzon of tho. United States,
who was taken prtsonor on board the Competi
tor and U now confined in a Bpantsh. prison In
Caba." In discussing tho resolution Mr. Berry
"This young man u a natlro ot tho 8tate ot
gansas. He afterword removed to Arkansas.
Qe went to Florida and was employed by a
jewijwiwr In Jaokaonvillo us a correspondent.
Be was on board the Competitor at the time ot
her capture, lie never had arms in his hands.
Bs did not go there as a soldier, but simply as
a newspaper correspondent. Ho hod a sum
bury trial and was sentenced to bo shot. Tho
' flndlsn of tho court wore not approved by tho
Spanish Government, and ho has now been Im
prisoned for more than a year. Ho has had
jo trial since, and there Is no assurance that
he will be tried within any reasonable time.
J think that under all tho circumstances it Is a
case whero tho United States should tnterfero
and demand his release. While my sympathies
bare been with the Cubans, I havo not hereto
fore expressed any views on the general ques
tion of tho war in Cuba.
At this point Mr. Hale of Maine, who was in
charge of tho Dollolency bill, interposed with an
expression of his hope that tho Senator from
Arkansas would not open tho Cuban question
this morning, but would lot the resolution go to
tho Committee on Foreign Relations, which
committee, he added, did not need any hurry
ing up on tho Cuban question, as its members
were all "ono way." ...
Mr. Berry ald he would havo closed his ro
tnarks by this time if ho bad not boon inter
rupted. Ho believed that every American
would say that the Spanish authorities in Cuba
bad no right to take an American citizen, con
fine him in prison, and deny him a trial.
The Senator from Maine," Mr. Merry added,
"thinks there Is no need to hurry about it. But
I think there is. Tho sooner the demand is
made for the release ot this man the better."
The resolution was referred to tho Committee
en Foreign Itelations, and tho consideration of
the DeflcToncy bill was proceeded with.
The amount appropriated In tho bill, as it
raised tho llouso, was 9S.1U6.U14; tho amount
as reported to the Senate was 07.911,405; the
total of Increases reported was $1,340,7011,
! and of reductions $1,01)3,518, the net roduc
tlon being 354,719. ,

propriety of leaving tho appointment ot a

''the advice and consent of the Senate,", and
without tho Senate being informed who tho

t , When Mr. Thurston represented that, in con-
61 lequonco of "the hitch" at the other end of tho
1 11 capltol. it had been necessary to attach tho
MM provision to an appropriation bill, Mr. Mor-
i F ran withdrew:his''.objectlon,.with the remark
that bo stood in the presence of a humiliation,
and accepted it along with his friends and col-
leairaes on the other side ot the Chamber.
The provision as to .the Paris Exposition was
then agreed to.
An amendment to pay an Indemnity of 93,000
for Injuries to Christopher Schmidt, a German
subject who was shot accidentally at the
United States rifle rango of Fort Snelllng.
Minn, was questioned by Mr. Galllnger anc
was explained by Mr. Hale as an act ot Interna
tional comity. After a long discussion, the
general drift of it being in favor of tho payment
of the indemnity, the amendment was agreed to.
Tho amendment having been rcachod which
limits tho price of armor plate for the three
battleships to W25 a ton, Mr. Butler ot North
I Carolina moved to reduce the limit to 100
I and to give tho Secretary of the Navy power,
if not able to mako contracts at that rate, to es
tablish a Government annor factory and to
manufacture the armor plute required. The
amendment was passed over until the remaln
der of the bill is disposed of. Several addi
tional amendments were agreed to, including
To pay out of humane considerations and without
retard to the question of liability, to tho Italian Qor
rnmtnt. as roll Indemnity to tho heir of three
Italian subjects taken from jail and lynched In Louisi
ana In lDSo. te.ooo.

Brooslyn Navy Yard.
Appropriating SI 50,000 (or a building forthe lroml-
) grant station at Ellis Island, Mew York, and to enlarge,
the Island, the total cost being limited to SOOO.OOO.
Amendments for the payment of private
claims were offered by Scnaton White and
Foraker, and were resisted by llr. Hale, who
made tho point of order that such claims aro ex
cluded by tho Scnato rules ns amendments to
appropriation bills. Without action on the
point of order, the Deficiency bill went over and
the Scnato, after a short executive session,
adjourned until to-morrow.
TARIFF BILL IX TUT. 1IOV8E.

Hr. Lewis's tilveralou.
Washington, Julv 8. Immediately after
the reading of the journal in tho Houbo to-day
Mr. James Hamilton Lcvls of Washington
claimed tho floor, but Speaker Kced announced
"a messago from tho Senate."
This was tho Tariff bill, presented by Secre
tary Cox In person, and its receipt was accom
panied by applause from Republican members.
. Mr. Dalzcll of Pennsylvania, rising whllo
the Secretary was reading, was rocognlzcd, and
offered for consideration an order from tho
1 Committal on Rules for tho illsjioeal ot tho
Tariff bill. Mr. Lewis, however, was not to bo
discouraged. Ho insisted with characteristic;
exuberance of complimentary rcferenco and In

Wabiitnotok, July 8. Senator Aldrlch and
his colleagues on the Conference Commltteo do
olaro that they will not yield, as the Senate has
already yielded more than it should havo done,
but aro confident that Chairman Dingier and
his associates will bo "reasonable," and rooedo
from tholr attltudo on tho more important
items in dispute. Tho Benate conferees aro of
tho opinion that the rates fixed by tho House aro
altogether too high, and they object further
that tho bill as passed by tho House will create
a large deficiency. By somo of tho,Senators
it la fixed as high as (10,000,000.
Senator Allison, who is Chairman of tho Com
mltteo on Appropriations, thinks that tho defi
ciency will amount to this sum, although ho
does not say so for publication. Hla idea Is
that the only means by which this prospective
deflclt can bo ovcrcomo is by curtailing ex-
Sendltnro for tho next fiscal year. Mr. Allison
oos not deny, howover, that it is much oaslor
to talc about economy in publto expenditures
than to enforce it, and no matter how seriously
he may talk about making up tho prospeotlvo
deficit by cutting down oxpenses, fow of his
colleagues ln olther House bellove that bo will
be able to make any material cut ln tho aggro
gate of appropriations.
Tho conferees on tho Tariff bill sat for more
than threo hours this afternoon and made very
satisfactory progress on the 87'J Sonato amend
ments, although no items of lmportanco ln dis
pute between tho two houses were reached.
Tho Democratlo conferees woro invited lnti
tho meeting only as a matter ot form, and after
a few moments of ponenU conversation with
drew at the intimation ot their Republican as
sociates that they would follow the precedent
set by the conference on the Wilson bill o
1891 and reach an agreement among them
selves beforo calling tho Democrats into the con
ference. Tho Rcpnblicans then settled down to work
in earnest and beforo adjournment had dis
posed of a largo number ot unimportant amend
ments and cleared the way for serious work to
morrow. Hereafter it is their purpose to hold
nightly sessions, and ther would have dono bo
to-night but that Representative Grosvenor,
one of tho conferees, gave a dinner to his col
leagues on tho Ways and Moans Committee.

Washington, July 8. In accordance with
the decision of the Treasury Department at tho
time the McKlaley Tariff bill became a law,
Assistant Socretary SDauldlng to-day held that

PllESrDKXI5 MESSAGE DELATED.
Mr. meKlnley Adheres to Ills Intention to Aak
for m Currency Commission.
WAsnnfOTOif, July 8. Tho failure ot tho
President to send to Congress to-day, ln accord
ance with the intention expressed yesterday at
the Cabinet meeting, the message asking author
ity for tho appointment of a currency commis
sion causod considerable speculation and com
ment, the burden of which was that the message
would not bo submitted at this session.
It was annouucod at the White House to
night, howevor, that tho messago would surely
go to Congress, probably on Monday. The Pres
ident's reason for holding it back to-day was
that it might interfere with the arrangements
mode ln the House to-day for sending the Tariff
bill to conference.
Several Senators and Representatives called
on the President to talk about the message, and
somo of them told him that there was no hope
of getting action before adjournment and that It
might cause a postponement of that desirable
end for an Indefinite period.
Mr. McKlnley told those gentlemen to find out
exactly what was likely to happen If the mes
sage wero submitted, and said be would bo glad
to near reports from ibeni. Ho gavo no indica
tion, however, ot any Intention to postpono
transmitting it until Congress reassembled ln
December, and from all accounts appears to bo
firm in adhering to his original intention.

A Papll r U Rang Chang ta taecetd Hint
Why tho Legation la to Move.
Wabihncitow, July 8. From information re
ceived at tho Ohlneso Legation to-day, it is
learned that Wu Ting Fang, tho new Chinese
Minister, who has boon in this oountry but two
months, Is to be recalled some tlmo in August.
It is loarnod that Wu Ting Fang will bo trans
ferred to Toklo to succeed Yu Kong, who was
formerly Minister at that place. Charges
have boon preferred against Yu Kong, and hla
conduot of affairs ln Japan has been under in
vestigation by Li Hung Chang for a considera
ble time. It was finally decidod to remove
him, and ho will bo replaced by Wu Ting Fang.
Tho latter will bo succeeded in this oountry by
Leo ICIng Yo, who is at present Chief Clerk ot
Foreign Affairs, and is directly under Li Hung
Chang. Loo King Ye is a man of large expert
enco ln dlplomatio affairs, and has grown up
practically under tho tutorship of tho great
Premier. Ho is about CO years old, and has
spent many years on tho bench as "Tao Tai,"
or Chief Magistrate, ot Chlng Klang. About
tho tlmo that Minister Fang waa sont to this
country Ye was summoned by the Emneror to
Pokln to take tho position of Chief Clerk ot
Foreign Affairs. As suoh ho took on actlvo
part m tho investigation of the charges against
Yu Kong, and has probably something to do
with the transfer ot Mr. Fang to Toklo.
In connection with the dlplomatio change,
the real reason why tho Chinese Legation will
bo changed from tho brownstono front on Four
teenth street to tho Schnolder House at Eigh
teenth and Q streets is learned.
The agent for the present homo of tho Chinese
Mlnister.Vuid which has been occupied by tho
Chinese representative for about four years, has
become dissatisfied with tho treatment bis
property has received, and it wos-hls sending
in a largo bill for damages to the houso that
causod Mr. Fang's determination to move, and
not, as was reported, tho desire to entertain ex
tensively this winter. Tho details of tho al
leged injuries to the house havo not been made
public, but it is averred that the houso will have
to be completely renovated and redecorated bo
fore it con bo mado habitable.
When tho Chinese Legation was removed
from the Stewart castle on Dupont circle to its
S resent location Senator Stewart was obliged
expend a large sum in repairing the houso
before it could be occupied by himself and fam
ily. It la understood that Mr. Fang has de
clined to pay the present bill for damages on
tho ground that if anybody should pay such a
bill It should bo his predecessor, undor whoso
reglmoCtho house was occupied when the dam
ages occurred. The information has created
quite a stir ln dlplomatio circles here.
PXOMOTIOX8 XX TUB ARMY.
To Bo Determined by Aetnal Profoaalenal Fit
ness Developed on Baamlaatlon.
WAsniNOTON, July 8. Secretary Alger, at tho
direction ot tho Presldont, has prescribed a new
System ot examination to dotermino the fitness
of army officers for promotion. Tho order is as
"The rules prescribed by tho President will
apportion tho subjocts to members in suoh a
manner as to Insure thoroughness in conducting
examinations. It should be borne In mind that
tho object ot tho examinations is to determine
tho actual professional fitness of officers for pro
motion. Mere cramming is not a desirable fea
ture ln the examination of mature and generally
well-educated men. Boards should so conduct
examinations that the qualifications for promo-
mako practical application ot all he has learned
rather than tho committal to memory of equa
tions and data, which ho would under ordinary
conditions obtain from books ot reference. Cor
rect understanding of theory is Indispensable,
but should ln all cases be coupled with the
ability to mako practical application of the
"The use an officer has mado of his opportu
nities ln the past will bo taken into consideration.
To this end, when an officer is ordered for exam
ination for promotion, the commanding officer
under whom ho Is serving and the commanding
officer of his regiment shall, without further In
structions, furnish to tho examining board. In
writing, any facta relating to any disqualifica
tions through the failure ot an officer to mako
propor use of his opportunities for perfecting
himself ln his professional duties or otherwise."

this city to-day It was decided to placo an Inde
pendent State ticket in the field ln opposition to
tho ticket nominated hero a week ago by the
Bryan Democracy on a free-silver plat
form. Among those present wero Virgil
P. Kline of Cleveland, Col, 8. K. Donavln of Del
aware, Julius Doxter of Cincinnati, 0. S, Ashley
of Toledo, T. P. L)nn, ex-Congressman Joseph
II. Outhwalte, James Carcn of this city, and 8.
U. Holding ot Cleveland, tho two latter being
at tho hoad of tho State organization; Honry B.
Apthorp of Ashtabula, who Is associated with
ox-Sonator Calvin B, Brlcoln tho railroad busi
ness, and others ot oqual promlnonco. Tho con
ference lasted two hours.
Thoro was adlvltlon of sentiment among those
ln attendance as to tho advisability of placing
on Independent ticket In the Oold.but thoso who
favored such action were largely in tho major
ity. Soma thought that tho most patrtotlo
course to pursue would bo to support tho Repub
lican State and legislative tickets and continue
to do so until Bryantsni and Populism had beon
completely routed. Letters wero read from
Judson Harmon, late Attomoy-Goneral under
President Cleveland; M. E, Ingnlls, President
of tho Big Four Railroad; Harlan Cleveland,
United States District Attorney at Cincinnati;
ex-Con grossman George E. Seney of Tiffin, ex
Congressman William Haines of Fremont, and
many others advising Independent action.
A resolution was offered by T. P. Linn of this
city, a most active and ardent supporter of true
Democracy, directing tho State Central Commit
tee to issue a call for a Btate convention to be
held in this city somo tlmo ln September, the
dato to bo fixed in tho call. There
was only ono dissenting vote to tho
adoption of this resolution. Palnior and
Buckncr received n total of 2,500 votes ln this
State at the Presidential eloctlon last year, so
that under tho law requiring that a party shall
poll one-tenth of 1 per cent, of tho total vote to
maintain a legal standing. It will be necessary
for the sound-money Democrats to file a petition
with tho State Supervisor of Elections contain
ing the signatures ot 10,000 persons ln order to
gel a place on tho Australian ballot. The load
ers say that they will havo no more difficulty
this year than last ln securing this number ot
signers. Thoy say that tho Domocratlo sound
money vote ln tbo Stato will reach 80,000.
A letter was road from W. D. Dynum, Chair
man of the National Executive Committee, say
ing that ovcry assistance would be rendered tho
movement ln Ohio. Indiana. Illinois, and Iowa,
and that the best speakers in the country would
be put to tho front, which would Indicate that a
vigorous campaign will bo made.
No action was taken with regard to legislative
tickets, but there was no mincing of words that
evory effort would be made to dofcat John R.
McLean's candidacy for tho United States Sen
ate, which Isunderstood to mean that the sound
money Domocrats will support the Republican
legislative tickets or place Independent candi
dates ln tho field.
MOSQUITO BITE AX ACCIDENT.
Death rrons It Is Csversd br an Accident
Jerseymen and accident insurance com-
ot a Kentucky court which has on especial per
tinency at this season of the year. Tho Court
of Appeals held that death resulting from tho
sting of an insect was accomplished by "ex
ternal, violent, and accidental" means, ln tho
sense that thoso words are understood ln an
accident Insurance policy. The court held,
moreover, that tho sting of tho Insect is tho
Eroxlmate causa of death, which results from
lood poisoning caused by the sting, and that
death from such a cause Is not the result ot
"poison ln any form or manner" or of "con
tact with poisonous substances," as thoso terms
aro regarded in accident Insurance.
The plaintiff In the case was tho trustee ot a
man named Omberg, who was bitten on the too
by aZmoequlto. Blood poisoning soon set In,
and when no went to consult a doctor the vic
tim of the bite told him of tho manner in which
the injury had been received. Subsequently
the man died, and the jury before which the
caso was tried gavo a verdict in his favor
against the insuranea company, which had do
ftndod tho caso on tho ground that an injury
received In such a manner was not covered r
the terms ot hi policy. Tho attending physi
cians testified that doath hod resulted from
tho bite, or rather from an Injury which the pa
tient hod described as a mosquito bite.

BRiDQKponT, July 8. Tho fleet of tho At- in
Inntlo Yacht Club, which Is cruising to tho J! E
eastward, arrived at Black Itock Harbor at jjtM
sunset to-day, Tho broad bay presented quite a fl JM
holiday appoaranco, tho handsoma clubhouso ot y '-H
tho Bridgeport Yacht Club bolng crowded with ft IM
yachtsmen nttlrod In whlto duck, whllo tha '' h M
women wero arrayed In evory variety of nautl- ,", fl Aj
cal costume. A grand display of II reworks to- . liMl
night from tho Bhoro was only nn incident to ; !Sii
tho magnificent pyrotcchnlo display from Com- -tip!
moJoro Adams's flagship nnd a numbor of other ,uT3
vessels In tho squadron. I jRI 1)
It Is to bo regretted that tho wind was not a ! Jffffl
very strong factor ln tho sail from lUvorsldo, ! MHjg
but tho first squadron run was not devoid of Jtv Ij!!
torest. Tho result of the day's raco proved '$M
somothlngof a surprise to tho knowing ones, jwH
nho expected, as a matter of courso, that th ,' Mfl
Colonla would lead the yachts at tho horns ' Ihm
mark. Such, however, was not tho caso, as Fred ;J i gj
lloyt's flyer Syco ehowod tho way, and actually . ; 3jl
went over tho courso In less tlmo than Commo- f sm
doro Postloy's big schooner. Ham Sweet's cutter, ' iW
which defoated Commodoro Guy Standing's Nil k ! ?jH
vana yesterday, continued with tho fleet ond ' j iW
mado a creditable showing. Tho Bochom did , . ' rjj
not go tho courso for tho reason that tho Cora- ,, , jjj6
niodoro wanted to bo at his uuchorago boforej ; I jjH
colors. Tho raco between L. J. Callonan'i 'S !
Ecllpso and Col, Austen's (Javioto was a doss - It wl
one, and tho latter was a victor by n small mar- H (Tj
gin. lhoBlstao, ownodby John Itbodcs of Now f'Jjj
Bedford, covered herself with glory by defeating t , v Bj
an excellent field of yachts with no mean rcpu- ' . i ml
tatlon for speed, and Mr. Itbodcs lifted his has f fig
lu acknowledgement of tho salute as tho yacht '' f(
dashed over tho llnlsh lino. ' KH
Colors wore mado from tho flagship Sachem, 4 aLnl
anchored off Riverside, promptly at 8 o'clock $ gH
this morning, and tho gun was answered from V Isgi
the RIverstdo clubhouse. Far out on tho sur- '.-J '
fnco of tho Sound tho water glistened like a mtr- V jH
ror, without the faintest Indication of a breeze. . nfnl
Half an hour later the blue peter, which was Sfl
run up Into tho starboard shrouds ot tho 3 Jl
Eachcm, signalled " Prepare to get under way." i "jl9
JEolua, however, still kept far away to tho 'i iljjB
southward. Shortly beforo 10 o'clock tho Re- 7 i'lS
gatta Committee's steamer went out to ths RK
starting line, which was near tho red buoy " l
off Greenwich Point. The prizes for tho varl- 19
ous classes ranged ln value from $25 to $40, and i jKJfl
In addition Commodore Postley offered two 1 fl
prizes, valued at $100 each, for sloops and .K JE
schooners. The 8yce, Eclipse, and Gavlota gave t it! U
double time allowance to tho other single- 'sfA
masted vessels, whllo the Colonla allowed tho ufljji
same to tha Sachem and Prlscilla, The courso w-
was to an Imaginary line drawn between Pen- S J&m
Held Reef beacon and the committee steamer, J im
anchored about 100 feet to the southeast, com- $ ,jjf
noting yachts to cross the Sound and round ths t ."Jr
red and black slripod buoy off Eaton's Neck, )'
leaving it on the port sldo, a distance of twenty 3 gift
ono miles. i, nKrri
Owing to thjL nbaxysaof wind the start was -sbHk
delayed until 11:30 VaroL, winm-tb4Vjrrep.t - ""&&
lory signal sounded across tho waters, at which. ''' ignKgts
hour there was a gentlo summer zephyr saun- r.fgKjS
terlng ulong from the south-southeast. Ten );
minutes later, simultaneous with a blast 'anai
of tho whistle, tho sloops received tho SJ TH
signal to cross tho lino. The Syce slipped 3 t4sf
away within thirty seconds after the blast ' 'B
of the whistle, breaking out a baby jib topsail a v sxW,l
moment before sho drifted across. Hlstoe. was i JK
cloae upon her weather quarter, with Akdsta J '- TRl
lulling Ftlll closer to tho windward end of the p " jSJ
line. The Eurybla was off to leeward, but all 1 r M
were within ten seconds of each other. Awa was f
tho next boat to go over, about three lengths A IH
astern and ln the wake ot the Syce. 8ho was , 'rgP
followed ln turn by tho Vorant IL, Eidolon, r , 1K1
Volusia, Volante, Wideawake, Tiger, Eclipse f Ml
and Uavlola. The last four were so badly bandl- 4 Wt
capped that they followed in the wako of ths 1
schooners, which were ofllclolly started at 11:50 tj (H
All the sloops went over on the starboard tack. .Ivfll
Tbo direction of the wind made it a beat to MAB
Eaton's Keck and a reach with tho wind on tho ' -'inHl
starboard beam to the beacon. Tbo schooners & H
started ln tho following onler: Prlscilla, Colo- ,
uln, bachem, and Nirvana. Tbo Prlscilla was to yH
the windward on iho starboard tack, while tbo 1 Mi
Colonla slipped across close under her stern on J .'J'lM
the port tack. The latter just caught tha if?M
llrst puffs of the new breeze that cams 4;'if
up from tho southward. The Sachem followed, 'fifrTS
with booms to starboard, after drifting back- t-Wivt
ward on tbo flood tide for nearly ten minutes, iijvisl
while the Nirvann was nearly ten minutes later 'S'l'3-Isi
crossing the line. There was hardly wind TrTttai
enough to give steerage way to tho big yachts JlfltM
under tho Connecticut shore, aud the lleet MFH
pointed out towurd deeper water, where a nico 'fElirR
little breeze rippled the surface of iho Sound. It zTt
was to light, however, that all the yachts did S"irB
not cross tho Sound. A few of the Corinthian StVirj
skippers preferred to sail directly up lu Black: "f?tJS,
Hock nnd forego the prize rather than spend a Sf'
night on tho Souna. sisSjB
The Syco led the lieot from start to finish. Sho '1&B?$
Passed the spar off Eaton's Neck about a o'clock. aSpR
ThoColouin and Syce have each won a leg in SSSivJ
their respective classes for tho Postley Cup, alao a&lBci
a ligearh for the prizes for ibewlnners of tho '.aJrifeB
gtutcst nuuilier of squadron runs throughout 'm

run of tho day. Tho jucbts llnisbod in allno 4Wt$i
