Mr. Perkins (Hep., Monroe) said that the Cuban question was without tho proTlnce ot the Legislature. It has no mora right to Instruct Congress, as proposed by tho Democratic resolu tions, than Congress would baro to instruct tho legislature on Now York affairs. Mr. Armstrong (Hop., Monroe) advised tho Democrats, it their sympathies wero so acutely aroused, to subscrlbo to tho cause part of their salaries for this week. Mr. Chsnler (Dem N.

Tho resolution also calls for Informa tion regarding the amount of Interest recoiled by them upon deposits nnd surplus, tho amount of Interest credited depositors during 1800 and 181)7. and the amount of salaries paid bank olllrlals. Mr. Ollvor says that many savings banks In New York occupy exclusively for their own bus iness real estate valued at from one to two mil lions of dollars. Ho thinks that If tbeso bank buildings wero rented In part for business pur poses or less oxpenslve property used by tho pavings banks for tho transaction of their own business, the nionoy now invested in bank build lngs would earn Interest and could be .added to tbo depositors' profits, Atsembljmnn DclanylRop., Onondaga) offorod resolution declaring that the contracting of municipal work led to tho degradation of work men, with tho only benofltof enrlohlng the con tractors at tho expense ot tho municipalities.

TrtKNTon, Jan. 2t.-Tho fight between New Jersoy and New York over tho corporations has been renewed in tho Loglslnturo. A bill was introduced to-night rendorlng it unnecessary for corporations organised under tho laws ot Now Jorsey to sot forth in their certificates or statements tho location ot thoir buslnoss outsldo ot tho State of Now Jersey, or tho address of any stockholder or director, mcrelr requiring thorn to glvo the address of tho principal olllco in Now Jersey and provid ing that nil notices for tho corporation or Its of ficers sent to that address shall bo sufficient notice. The tmssago ot this act will do away with tho nocesslty for placing in public rocords information of value only to tho tax gatherers ot othor States, nnd will block nny Now York Inquisition based on New Jersey's publlo records. Lost yosr tho New York Legislature, by tho Loxow aot, sought to make it impracticable for n foreign corporation to do business in Now York. Thereupon tho Now Jersoy Legislature, without a dissenting voto, passed what has boon described as an act in pro tection of corporations, which destroyed much ot tho forco of tho Lexow act. This year tho tax department In Now York has caused records to bo searched In Now Jersey, and from tiioso records has boon made a list which includes tho namo of overy corporation organized under tho laws of New Jer soy whose cortlricato ot incorporation states that It Intends to do business in New York. Tho namo ot overy stockholder obtained from tho cortlllcnto of incorporation, which Is filed ot necessity In tho Secretary of Stato's ofllcc. who resides In New York or lias an olllco In Now York, nnd the namo ot overy olllcer and director of n New Jersey corporation whoso rosldonco nnd Post Oftlco address are con tained In tho atntcmont tiled, and who resides or docs buslnoss in Now York, was got in this way. Now York Stato hns been more clover In pro tecting Its corporations from forolgn taxation. It only requires a Post Olllco nddrcsB of tbo stockholders nnd directors, and this Is not neces sarily tho residence Post Olllco address. Stock holders aro at liberty to designate ns a Post Olllco address n box lit tho Now York city Post Olllco. Tho amendment proposed to New Jer sey's Corporation law will mako only tho samo requirements ns tho Now York law. Tho Stato ot New York, having obtained tho Information concerning stockholders of Now Jorocy corporations residing in Now York, has served notico of tnxatlon against tho corpora tions upon every oftlcer or stockholder whoso address appears from the recordB to bo in New York Stuto. irrespective of tho question whether tho corporation has ovor dono nny business there. A letter from tbo directors of a New Jersey corporation to tbo Now York Tax Department, stating that tho corporation has never transacted any business In tho Stato of Now York: tbat it has no olllco thore, nnd hns no property there and novcr had, brings tho rcspnnso that unless tho return Is tiled tho company will bo tnxod pitch nn amount ns tho assessors may spoilt. Tho Now Jersey director residing in New York or doing business in New York, thus served Id In a dilemma. It he makes no return, than tho tax will bo assessed ncalnst tbo company ana will bo mndo n debt of tho company to tho Stato, nnd upon Its non-payment a suit may be brought agilnst htm as one ot the directors rosldlng In tho State, under tbo provisions of Iho Lexow net. and tho only way in which he enn get tho tax removed Is to begin proceedings in a court, which will put him to an expenso not Inconsid erable. Frequently tho Now Jersey director or stockholder is served with a subpeuna to appear before n Commissioner and Is required to produco all tho books and papers of tho company. Tho proceedings aro carried on until the director and stockholder of n Now Jersey company residing In New York Is so much harassed and annoyed that frequently ho concludes it better to orgnnlio his companies hercaf tor under tholaWB of New Y'ork, or to withdraw entirely from tho New Jersey corpo ration. Now York hns ndded to tho personal tax of cvory stockholder In u New Jersey corpora tion within Its Jurisdiction the nmountot stock hold by him in n New Jersey corporation. Last year Now Jersey received mora than 81.000.000 franchise tax from corporations doing business practically wholly out of tho Stale, and each year this amount Is Increasing, The Legislature hns always practiced liberality with tho corporations, nnd tbero Is no doubt tbat the proposed bill will bo passed. vniTUAitr.

The Arabalanee Bnraeen CTtaa Was Called Raid Tbat Daniel UlldarT Committed Saleliav bat tbn irilllamsburc Felloe Havo Arrested tbo Tns Men reading an Investigation. Undor circumstances so suspicious that two men aro under arrest pending farther Investiga tion, Daniel KIldutT. 10 yean old, of 110 Berry Btroot, Williamsburg, was found dead in bed yosterday morning with a ballet wound over his right tomple. Tho prisoners, Thomas Kil duff, father ot the dead man, nnd his frlond, James Qilroy, 40 years old, ot 210 Union ave nuo, are known to havo boen in the rooms where tho Kllduffs lived early yesterday morn ing. Tboy assert tbat they discovered the sui cide, as thoy call It. ' About 11 o'clock Qilroy rang the bell ot Dr. Murphy's house at 170 North Sixth street and asked tbo doctor to go with him immediately. "Thoro's a man shot himself around in Berry street," ho said. Noticing that his visitor had been drinking, tho physician asked him how it had happened. "I don't know," said tho visitor; "I come In and aeon him thore with tho bullot in his head. If you hurry you might bo in time to aavo him." Dr. Murphy followod the man to Borry streot, and through a passageway to a roar building, whero Gllroy threw open tho door of a room on tho first floor. "Ho's In there," said ho. Entering, the doctor found tho body of a young man lying on tho bod, dressed in underclothes nnd socks. Tho right sldo was toward the wall and tho right arm bont upward. Over tho right tcraplo was a bullet wound. LIfq had been ex tinct for several hours. The bed clothing was considerably tossed and massed. Going into tho adjoining room, Dr. Murphy found Thomas Kllduff, who nppearod stupid from intoxica tion. Inansworto queries ho said nothing in telligible, Iloturnlng to tho room where the body lay, tho doctor looked on the bed, under tho bed, and around the room, butfoundno revolver. Ho went out and said to Gllroy: " You say tbat this man committed suicide I" "Is ho doad 1" said Gllroy. " Ho shot hlmsolf in tho head. I didn't know but he might be allvo." " Ho is dead. If he shot himsolf, where is the pistol I" " Ho w would I know 1" crlod Gllroy. " Some body might have took it away." " Woll, don't toueh tho body or move anything in tho room," contlnuod Dr. Murphy, "until tho pollco come." The matter wns reported at tho Bodford ave nuo pollco Btatlon, and Detective Sergeants Kennedy and Dunn and Policeman Connors w ere sent to tho place. Moanllrue Ambulance Surgeon Requa of tho Eastern District Hospital had been summoned and reported the case as probable BUlcldo. But the olllccrs made dlscov orlos tbnt gavo tho matter n graver aspect, Tho first ot those was the finding of tho revolver, which they discovered In Gllroy's pocket, with one of tho chambers empty. Noxt they found tbnt Gllroy had called at tho Kllduffs rooms about 8 o'clock that morning, and he and the elder KUduft went out a few momenta later and did nut roturn for tbreo hours. Nono ot tho neighbors beard tho sound of a pistol shot, Thero has been troublo of Into betwocn Kll duff senior and his son. The father had bis son nrrcsted Friday night on n warrant charging him with assault. Ho was so badly beaten tbat ho wns barely ablo to bobblo to tho Leo Avcnuo Pollco Court on Saturday and nppoar against tho prisoner. Ho said to Justice Lemon: " Your Honor. I'm afraid of my life from Dan. Since I been poorly an' not ablo to work at tho cooperage he's been Dentin' mo if I didn't havo money to give htm so as he could buy them good clothos he wears." "Is that true, young man I" asked tho Justice. " Oh, he's always plckln' on me," replied young Kllduff carelessly. "I guess I dldn t hurt him none." Justice Lemon romandod him for further in vestigation, promising to give him a sovero sen tence if it is proved that ho ill-trented his father. Tbo elder, instead of leaving court, sat on a, bench crying, and Just before court was ad journed went to the bench with a plea for his boy. He ain't a bad boy, Danny aln t. said ho. "Would your Honor let him off this oncet I Just wanted to teach him a lesson. I wouldn't want my boy to go to Jail." It was vain for the Justice to advise the father against such clemency; ho couldn't bear tho thought of having bis Danny locked up. "Ho'll be good to mo after this, your Honor," ho kept assuring Justice Lemon. So tho prisoner was brought out and re arraigned. "Ak'alnst my better Judgment I will discharge you," said Justice Lemon. "You ought to be In tbo penitentiary, nnd you'll go there if I see you hero ngaln, as 1 expect I shall." Young Kllduff swaggered out of court, and In the corridor met his father. Tho boy turned to one of his cronies who was waiting for him and, ignoring his father, said with an ovil laugh: "I did the old fool after all." Since then, the neighbors Bay. thoro have been frequent scuffJIngs nnd quarrols In the Kllduff apartments. Nobody but tho father and son llvo on the first floor. They havo lived there for about two years. Armed with theso facts the ofllcers questioned Thomas KUduft and Gllroy. Gllroy, who was less under tho Influence of drink tli an his friends, made this statement: "Thomas Kllduff came to my houso lata last night, and we went to his houso togother this morning. There we found Dan in bed with n holo in his bead. I took away tho revolver and wont for a doctor. That's nil I know about it." This does not accord with a story which he had previously told some of tbo neighbors. Ho said then that ho and the elder KUduft had gnno out about H o'clock to get a drink, leaving Dan asleep on the bed; and while they wero out Dan hnd shot himself. By the time Coroner Delap got to the pollco station Kllduff had sobered down somewhat, and in answer to tho Coroner's questions made the following statement: "I went to bed early last night, and when Dan enrao homo at 1 o'clock ho beat me and put me out In tbo yard. Ho gavo mo this black eyothat you boo. 1 was afraid to go back, and I went to a. house on North Eighth Btroot, nn' from tbero to Gllroy's. In tho morning me nnd Gllroy wont round to tho house, an' thero wo found Danny dead. Wo wore both pretty far In tho drink, but I knew enough to go to an undertaker's an tell him to lay out the body. If Gllroy went for a doctor nt 11, when we found tbo bay dead at 8. I do not know what for be done it. It must have been tho drink." Kllduffs statement that he did not spend the night nt homo Is confirmed. It Is also truo that ho wont to Undortakor Ireland's about 0:30 yos terday morning and told him that Dan was dead, a statement which tbo undertaker re garded with doubt owing to bis informant's condition. Kllduff had sobered up sufficiently last night togtvon more Intelligent account of what he knew nf his boy's death. "My boy," ho said, "never drank anything stronger thn sarsaparilla. After I had hint re leased In court on Saturday we worotngothor for awhile. In tho afternoon I left him and wont to Mrs. Clark's house, at 220 North Eighth street. My boy camo thoro in the evening nnd be pan to denounce mo for having had him arrested. Whllo I was arguing with him ho guve me this terrific blow In the right eye. You ran see how it Is swollen. I nuror laid my hnnris on Dan. Ho wont out after striking me. and I saw noth ing moro of him until on Sunday night whon I went to tbo house, wbcro I found him alone. Ho upbraided roe again, and then showed the revolver. Ho said be bad bought it on Satur day nlgbt, "Dun became angry, and, pointing the re volt or at me, ho mado mo fall on rny knees and beg for mercy for what I did to him. When I did sn he got u prayer book, which ho mado mo tako hold of, and then told me that mv time hud como and that I might ns well say my prayers. Ho tired a shot over my bond, and when I begged him not to shoot me ho replied: 'No, I wouldn't Bhuot you, Thero are only blank cartridges in this revolver.' "I went out afterward and etayed at Mrs. Clark's bouse. To-day I nnd Gllroy went to the house and wo foun I tnnt tho boy had shot him self, Dun told mo ho bought the revolver on B.ilurdiy night for$l.B(, but bo wouldn't say where ho made tho purchase," Father and son maintained thomselres from money left to the older Kllduff by bis father.

At 8 o'clock last even ing, tbo first of the three nights of tho fair, tho room on tho third story ot I bo mission houso wore packed tight with as contused and 'con fusing a crowd as was over seen In Now York. Thoro wero Chlneso in Chtncso clothes and Chi nese in Caucasian clothes, there wero Americans in Chlneso clothes and Americans in thoir own evorydny clothes. Everybody was there to look at ovorybody else. Except a Chlneso string band and a Mollcan talking machine man, tho entire activity of tho assemblage was summed up in a unanimous mutunl stare. Tbo orchestra is a thing that can bo hoard almost any night by the stranger who wandors through Chlnntown. Ono would think tho in habitant would find llttlo in its complex cater wauling that would exclto curiosity. But never onco In all tho evening did it tuno up without an instant congestion ot the Chlneso olement of tho crowd around tho platform. They crowded over each other as it in anxloty to see who could got nearest lo tho Instru ments, and onco in tho front row, they Jab bered and chattered with as much complacency as if thoy had been in tbo first tier of boxes at (tho Metropolitan Opera Houso on a Wagnor night.

Two Hundred Ittng Spinner quit Because or tho Cat In Wain Fall Riter. Mass., Jan. 24. The first strlko of any importance ever made at tho Iron Works mills, owned by M. C. D. Borden, was bogun this noon when noarly 200 ring spinners left their placos. They were employed in No. 4 mill, which is the largest in tho country, containing 87,000 spindles. With them, as with tho other dlsaatlsflod spinners In tho city, an excessive re duction is tho causo of the troublo. Thoy were paid on Saturday, and the wages, tbey said, showed a reduction of moro than 11 1-0 per cont. For Oiling yarn thoy say that pay was cut IS per cont., for warp yarn 12 per cent. They talked the matter over Saturday, hut It wo not until noon to-day that they decided upon their course. At 12 o'clock nil left the mill and gathered in tho street. There they hold it meeting and voted to Blrlko. None of those who participated in the meeting returned to work at 1 o'clock, and of 147 frames only 14 wero started. They wero operated by thrco boys. Overseer Bennett said that tho cut did not exceed 1 1 1-0 per cent., and thut the operatives did not make known nny firltvanco. Ho did not know tbat they wero go ng to strike until ho loarncd that they had voted not to como In after tbe noon hour. Tho snlnners in No. 4 mill will endeavor to havo thoso in tha three other mills Join them. At noon they had no opportunity to talk with tho others, but they will do bo later. The other spin ners havo tiled no complaint, and may not join tbe strikers. The Weavers' Union at its general meeting to-night refused to sanction n strike of weavers nt tbe King Philip Mills. In re porting the decision of tho King Philip weavers, Secretary Whitehead statod that he bad intorvioAod tbo Treasurer, who Hgrced to mako concessions. He said also that tho cut at tbo King Philip did not oxceod 11 1-0 per cent., nnd as tho weavers had agreed to accept tbat reduction tbey could not sanction a striko there unless tbey gavo othors permission to do so. Tbo union then rofuscd to favor tho decision ot tbo King Philip employees. This places the latter alone in tho fight. Tho national association of mulo spinners has refused to sanc tion tho strike of the spinners. The Weavers' Union has acted similarly with the weavers, and tbo ring spinners havo no union. All de clare, however, that they are determined to win out, and a bitter light Is in viow. STRIKING WEAVERS QETTZXO UOZT. Prospects or Troublo at Providence Geneva Mill Gettlna- Outsider. Providence, R. I., Jan. 24. The Wanskuck Company is determined to start up tho Geneva mill. A batch of weavers wero brought to tho mill to-day and put to work, about half tbo looms being employed. Tho superintendent says tho entire mill will bo running before the end of (tbo week. Tbo newcomers are Poles, and It Is belloved thoy came from Webster and olsowhere. Tbe men wero escorted by police from tho mill to their boarding house, but although something of a crowd gathered nnd followod tbo weavers nnd thoir pollco escort, no demonstration was mude. The strikers say they will mako an olTort to induco tho now men to leavo tho village. It is be lieved that It will be n caso of moral suasion first nnd bricks afterward, Tho crowd following tha new-men to thoir boarding houso uumheriil fully 200, nnd there wns some hoot ing, but no open violence Homo of the strikers nttempted to follow the operatives into tho boarding house, but were kept back by the po lice. Tho striko has been on now for more than n week, nnd the company shows no indication of yielding to (tho ilomaml for increased wnges. Tbero certainly will bo troublo to-morrow or next day If tho new weavers are not won oer by tho strikers, It is understood that tbe com pany Is seeking to checkmato tho striken) by purchasing mills In other sections ot tho State and thus tilling thoir orders.

When They Camo Aahera at Jenra'a Inlet-Sandy tott Ltxht- ahlpaa Ark orSarrty for lbs Walla ea Crew. Two tugs of the Moran Towing Company foundered in tho ferment created by n westerly galo off Bandy Hook on Sunday, Thoy wero tbo James A. Dumont, Capt. Florlan Romard, nnd the J. K. Wallace, Capt, George E. Dcmlng. They IcftWallabout on Sunday morning, tho Dumont with three dumping scows and tho Wallace with two. Attor tho cargo ot tho scows had vanished through their movable bottoms tbo tugs and thoir tow started to return to tho harbor. Tho wind had shifted to tho west and was blowing a galo. Tho bluff bona of the scows, against which the seas smashed, mado tbo tow ing tnlebty hard. Tho tugs, which had boon used to fair woathar and harbor work, bad very little freeboard, nnd tho crests tumbled ovor their bons. flooding cabins, galleys, and engine rooms. Tho Dumont sprang aleak, and by G o'clock in tho afternoon Iho water tbat camo in through the open soams nnd poured over tbo rails had put out tbo fires. Sho set her ensign union down, and tho ocoan tug Arnott, 'which had been cruising near the lightship In search ot a tow, came alongsldo and took the Dumont's Captain nnd crow aboard. A hawser was passod from tho Arnott to tho first of tho three scows, and sho started with them for tho city at 0:30 o'clock. Tho heavy head seas lnfpcdcd her so much that sho did not got to Staten Island until noon yesterday. Tho Dumont sank in about eight fathoms, in sight of hor craw, a short distanco northeast of Sandy Hook Lightship. After taking oft tho crew of tbo Dumont, Capt. McElwoo of tho Arnott went alongsldo tho Wallaco, which wns making hoavy wcathor of it, and askod Capt. Dcmlng If ho didn't want tobarcscuod. Capt, Doming thought that tha galo would go down with tho Bun nnd that ho could mako harbor. Ills tug was not lenklng, nnd tho Arnott loft him almost stalled in tho combers. Nothing more was heard from tho Wallace until about 4 o'clock ynstorday afternoon, and it wns supposed until that tlmo that sho had been lost with all hands. Then the tug Ocoan King got. into port with tho nows that tbo Cap tain and crew otthe Wallace wero aboard tho Sandy Hook Lightship. They were landed last night at Quarantine dock bv tho steam nllot boat Now York. This Is tho ctory thoy told ot their experlonco: At 0 o'clock on Sunday night tho Wallaco and her tow wore making leeway in tho riot. Capt, Doming decided to cut his two scows adrift. Thero was a man on each, nnd It was Impossible for tbo tug to take them off. When tho hawser was out tbo tug fell into tho trough and shipped two big seas that almost cap sized her. Sho got her hoad into It again and found that sho could mako a couple of knot. Tbo pounding of tho Beas opened her seams forward, and at 8:30 o'clock Bho was leaking badly. Sho had thon passod to tho windward of tbo lightship n mllo or so. Tho engineer, James Shccbnn, reported tbat she could not keep aflout half an hour longer. Capt. Dcmlng dccldod to put about and mako for tho lightship. Ho burned a darollght from the top of tho pilot honsc. Capt. Huntley nnd tbo mon of tbo light ship had been watching tbo tug nil tho afternoon nnd evening and had correctly surmised that sho could not weather tho blow. Tho steam ot the tug gavo out Justus Bhc rounded to under tho stern of tho lightship. Ono of tho men hove n lino attached to a hawser to tho lightshlpnnd the craw haulod It abourd. Tho hawsor was mado fast to tho after bltt, and tbo Wallaco strained at tbo lino thirty feet astern. No boat could llvo In tho sons, so tbe Boven mon on tho tug wero told that they would have to tnko a plunge into tho soa ut tho end of the heaving line which was tossed aboard tbe Wallace In turn each man on tho tug looped an end of tho line around his body under his arms and Jumped overboard. Hib transit from tho tug lo the lightship wns swift, as thirteen men wero hauling on tbe lino. Every man wns soaked with salt water and half Irozcn whon ho got aboard. All wero takon into the cabin und pro vided with warm clothing while their own dried, and hot drinks wero given to them. Tho eon ot Capt. Dcmlng, Slato Percy R. Doming, was tho last man to leave tbe tug. At midnight the deck ot the tug was partly Submerged, and she was sinking fan. Before leaving her Mato Dcmlng attached a buoy to her. Sho was cut looso, ana drifted about 400 feet to the eastward of the lightship, whero she sank in about thirteen fathoms. The two Bcowa towed by tho Wallace were re ported aground yesterday afternoon In Jones's Inlet. JuBt west of Short Beach. It was said yesterday afternoon that no men could be Been on tho scows. If tho men aro there they have ulcntv to eat, and are woll protected from the blast In the dock houses, whiih aro strongly built. Capt, Doming says that If thosrowshave stranded tho men aboard aro all right. The Dumont was originally tho Young Amer ica. Sho is an old bont, but was rebuilt about eight years ago. Tho Walluco was forraorly tbo Gen. Rosoncianz. Each tug was valued at about 517,000. SYRACUSE'S DVAZ OOUNOIZ. Tbe Two nodleo Try to Do Unalnrs In tbe Same Itoom nt the Same Tlmo.
