LACE PARASOLS AT ONE-HALF PRICE. River and Harbor Bill Comes Up in the Senate. ~ AND AFTER THAT THE TARIFF. The Federal Ele:tion Law May Go Over Until the >'ext Session. Contested Election Cases—The Bank ruptcy Law—lrrigation Survey to Be Transferred From Powell's Charge WASHI*GTON CITT, Jnly P.—Frye's ship ping bills are nutinished business on the Senate calendar for tomorrow, and he hopes to have them disposed of without further delay. He will then ask lo have the river and harbor bill taken up. This bill, with the amendments which ;he committee on com merce has authorized Frye to offer, carries an appropriation ot' about S:6.OjO,UOQ, and be says it is the best bill of the kind ever prepared. Morrill, chairman of the finance commit tee, will endeavor to have the tariff bill made an order of budness after the ship ping bills are out of the way. The tariff bill, it is understood, will be in charge of Senator Aldrich. If the river and harbor bill gets right-of-wav it is more than prob able that the tariff debate will not be begun in earnest until next week, as there are three appropriation bills to come before the Senate this week, one of which, the sundry civil bill, is likely to precipitate a debate of some length. Among its provisions as it passed the House is an appropriation of 4720,000 for geological and irrigation sur veys to t>e expended under the direction of Director Powell, and this will be antag on zed by Stewart, and possibly by other Western senators, who want the irrigation survey to be conducted by the agricultural department. The other two appropriation hills are the Indian, and consular, and diplomatic. The report of the conference committee on the silver bill, which is a privileged matter, is likely to be presented before the close of the week, and it will probably give rise to a debate of some length. A caucus of Republican senators is ex pected this week to decide whether or not to take up the election bill, which will probably be received from the House to morrow, at this session. Proceedings m the House promise to be comparatively uninteresting. Probably the general deficiency appropriation bill, the last of the appropriation bills, wili be acted upon before the week is ended. The election committee is desirous of securing consideration of the two contested elec tion cases, Miller vs. Elliott, of South Car olina, and Longston vs. Venable, of Vir ginia, which have been for some time on the calendar. The friends of the bank ruptcy bill also expect to be able to" get that measure before the House this week. POWELL WILL BE DEFEATED. Irrigation to Be Placed Under the Sec retary of Agriculture. WASHINGTON CITY, July 6.—The senators from Washington. Montana, North and South Dakota, took another whirl at Powell yesterday before the appropriation committee, and this time were reinforced by Senator Teller of Colorado, who has been Powell's friend heretofore. The irri gation committee submitted a new propo sition to be incorporated in the appropria tion bill in p ace of the $750,000 Powell proposition in the House bill. It is that $200,0(0 is to be appropriated for artesian experimental irrigation and SIOO,OOO for an irrigation survey. All the work to be car ried on by the department of agriculture, instead of the geological survey. Chair man Allison, of the appropriations com mittee was verv searching in his questions. He asked Allen about the irrigation of Washington, Power about Montana, and Casey and Moody about the Dakotas. Senator Casey, having spent considerable time in investigating irrigation matters in North Dakota, was able to give the com mittee a great deal of information relative to his stale. While no conclusion was reached by the committee, it is believed the Powell faction will be defeated and the work of irrigation m the future will be placed in the hands of the secretary of agriculture. If this is done Powell will be checkmated in his at tempt to withdraw all the irrigable lands and all lands in the vicinity of such lands from homestead settlement. It is probable that the secretary of agriculture would di rect that all reservoir and canal sites be withheld and the other lands be opened for settlement as before. It was developed at yesterday's examination that the North Dakota artesian basin extended as far west in Montana as where the thirteenth meridian cros-ed the boundary line, and from this point southeast along the foot hills of the mountains. It is said that two senators asseried that they would bring charges against Powell in the Senate and have him invest igated. Methods by Which the Drmorratu Elect Congressman. WASHIWOTOS CITY. JU% 6.— The Chal mers-Morgan election comest wili probablv be called up this week. The majority of the core mi ttee reported in favor of Morgan, the sittiiip member, who is a DemocraCbut Mr. Houk has presented a minority report in favor of the Republican contestant, Gen eral Chalmers, and he will make a speech in the House in line with his report. The minority report admits the commission of fraud in the Second Mississippi district during the election, but declares that the showing ma le by the contestants is not suflicient to warrant the unseating of the contestee. Uj>on this point Mr. Houk dwells in his report, and it is understood he will cite the came vigorous tacts in his speech. After quoting from the majority report, he says: These statement* show that at twenty-three boxes out of ninety-seven the committee find fraud enough to reduce the plurality returned for the conn stee at least thr-'e-fourths. or. to put it in tig.ires, from ->.161 to 2.0i0i So thet fey an examination of one-fourth of the boxes three-onrths of the p uralitT is wiped out. I liave • xamined thirty-eieht Wnt-re I think the validity of the election is successfully as sailed, and which wipes oat tfte total returned majority for the cotiu-atee, and gives a majority to the conte*taut It is ereatly to be regretted th ? th- m j irity report did not ijive at least the name» of the box *s which w -re considered sttf ceysfully as>ailel and which they did not, s-» that the House con d decide intelligently about the boxes, upon which the majority and minority r»p<.rti d:d rot agree. There i» a substantial asrretment that the contestee was re turned or elected by a plurality of 6.4C6 votes in the stveu western counties, which, in a .air election, are largely RepoOilcan; that at twenty i:,-ee boxes in these counties t>.l2J of this pla ra.ity was found to be fraudulent; that this re- to the Secretary of Agriculture. THE MISSISSIPPI CONTEST. duces the total returned plurality t02,040; that in these seven counties there is a number of boxes as to which no testimony was taken, but it may be safely affirmed taat in not one o; these counties, taken as a whole, was the elteiiop an honest one; that at these unexamined bexos. the returned plurality, for the contestee, is that If they be rejected it leav?s a plu rality for the contestee of 226; thai there was a general terrorizing of Republican voters in this district; that counsel for contest ant stopped taking testimony at Hernan io to avoid bloodshed; tnat his counsel at Oxford, on account of the great excitement there, did not deem it prudent t<> take testimony at that place: that the taking of testimony at Ho ; ly Springs was prevented by the refusal of the Democratic mayor to proceed, after ho had agreed to take tne testimony; that the contestant exhausted h s time sad took a lame amount of testimony, but we* de'ayed by dilatory cros*-examinations by coQusel for contestee On this statement of facts, on which there is a substantial agree ment, we confidently ask the jadgment of the II use in favor of the contestant. When the majority of the committee found fraud enoush at twenty-three boxes to reduce the returned plurality 6,122 votes, can it be pos sible that a further examination would not have shown further fraud at the unexamined boxes sufficient to give the contestant even a greater majority than is here counted for him? For th;s House to declare the contestee legally elected, aittr all the frtul shown in this report and the fi'st tixteen of the majority re port, with which we agree, will be to uphold and maintain a state of tbiugs dis?rarefcl to onr Civilization and to encourage its continu ance and repetition, so that ii will grow with tbeirgrowth and strengthen with their strength until it becomes imbeded in the politics of that sec lor, never to bo eridicaiei except by revo lution." FIVE CHILDREN ARE DEAD. The Terrible Powder Explosion at In- dustry, Pennsylvania. INBOSSBY, Pa., July 6.—Five of the seven little victims of the powder explo sion list night have died, the last one be ing the ly-month-old daughter of August Smith, Emma Smith, aged 9, and Charlie Shaw, aged 8. The other victims will re cover. The father of young Wehler is crazed with grief, and last night tried to kill August Smith, the owner of the build ing where the powder was stored. This morning he wandered avrav from home and was found near E izabeth, Pa., several miles from Industry. A clo.-e watch is now being kept over him. The coroner's jury rendered a verdict in accordance with the facts as stated in last night's dispatches, and condemned the practice of merchants in keeping powder and other explosives where children have access to tnern. THE KNIGHTS OF PYTHIAS. One Thousand Members at Camp Carna- han, Milwaukee. MILWACKEE, July 6.—Camp Carnahan is occupied tonight by over 1,000 members of I niform Rank, Knights of Pythias, and before Monday noon the nurtlber in camp will be five times as great.

HOME FKOM EUROPE. Miss Winnie and Monsignor Ber- nard O'Reilly. NEW YOKE, July 6.—Mis . Winnie Davis, daughter of Jefferson Davis, arrived from Europe today on the Bretagne. She was welcomed home by her fiancee, Alfred Wilkinson. Monsignor Bernard O'Reilly was also a passenger on the Bretagne. He left here eight years ago to champion the Irish question in Rome and faithfully defended it at the Vatican. Tne monsignor said that the English are making every en deavor to influence the Vatican on the Irish question, but the friends of Ireland are constantly on the lookout, and thus far, with the aid of the pope, have man aged to hold the upper hand. FIRE AMONG SHIPPING. Steamer. Wharves and Lntnber Burned at Eaat Tanas Mich. EAST TAWAS, Mich., July 6.—Late last night the steam barge Seagull was discov ered to be on tire. The cook, Maggie Connett, was unable to get ashore, and was burned to death. The Seagull's lines were burned off and she drift* d across the slip, setting fire to the steam barge Calvin, which, however, was ?aved. Further on the bitrning vessel set Em ery's dock and mills on fire, which were de stroyed; loss $30,000. Also, Loek Jt Stevens' docks, Sibley A Bearingers' docks and lumber. The loss cannot be ascer tained. Sixteen million feet of lumber were consumed. The Seagull is a total wreck. LOTTERY'S VICTORY ASSURED. The Louisiana Oovernor Will Veto the Bill, .Fast for Appearances. BATON ROUGE, La., July 6.—Tomorrow evening the fifth day wil>have expired on which Governor Nichols may return the lottery bill, either with or without his ap proval. There is hardly a doubt as to what the executive intends to do in the matter. Governor Nichols' advisers state that not only will the governor veto the bill, but the action of the legislature will be strongly condemned. The veto message will meet with the nec essary two-thirds, as the leaders in both houses are ready for any emergency. Fighting With a Madman. DELHI, N. Y., July 6.— ln the hamlet of Barbonrville, Delaware county, on July 4, Adelbert Cumming, who is undoubtedly insane, inflicted a fatal wound upon Syi vanus ralmerton. When neighbors tried to arrest Cumming he attacked them with a knife. Three or four times he made the crowd flee before him. The farmers armed themselves with shotguns, and Cumming was shot in the legs and wounded in the head. He continued to slash right and left, but was finally overcome and jaiied. This morning while Sheridan McArthur was givinc him food he would in all proba bility have been strangled by the madman had it not been for assistance rendered by the other prisoners.

Cftttghlan, of San Jose, as umpire in thegame between Stock ton and Ss.n Francisco. In fhe eighth in ning Cocghlan allowed Levy to score on a fonl ball that went by the catcher, and de cided that Sclna was out at the plate on a home-run hit beyond the bicycle path. When he made the latter decision the crowd went wild and threatened to mob bim. When the game ended Coughlan went to his dressing-room, with the mob after him, and when on the inside he was attacked by Selna, struck in the face and knocked down. Sheriff Cunningham and a squad of policemen broke open the door and res cued him, escorting him off the grounds. Bix>re: Stockton 4, San Francisco 5.

Alaska Commercial Company Will Hunt on Siberian Coast. SAN FRANCISCO, July 6. —The Chronicle states that the Alaska Commercial Com pany, which till recently had the exclusive right to capture seals in the American waters of Behring sea, has now secured a contract with the Russian government, granting them the exclusive right lo cap ture seals on the Siberian coast. The num ber of seals to be taken is limited, bui is not known. It is beiieved to be very iarge. The steamer Karluk, owned by the com pany. recently sailed for Petroflsky to cap ture seals there. The competition of the Alaska Commercial Company will be very severe for the North American Commercial Company, which was recently awarded by the United states seaiing rights in Behring sea, and it is believed the effect will be to greatly reduce the price of fckins.

Tlie Emperor and Conntil Wish the Barriers Taken Down Again. As Soon at the Mongol# are Convinced That No Modification Will be Made, Then Stop* in Retaliation Will be Taken—Yalae of Cheap Labor* NEW YORK, July FL— The Chinese minis ter to Washington City, arrived on the IJS Bretagne today. A newspaper correspond ent was a passenger on the same boat, and according to his naper had a long talk with Minister TsJn, a report of which is printed this uiormng. His excellency's words are said to have been carefully translated by Mr. Lee, the official interpreter to the Chinese legisla tion. The Celestial diplomat ia very con siderably worried over the recent events in his country, so iar as the Chinese are concerned. "Unlc*s the United States government repeals the laws which HOW exclude my countrymen from thi* country," said the diplomat, "we shall treat Amar icans to a dose of their own medicine. I mean that we shall exclude citizens of the United States from the Chi nese empire. We shall not be pushed to any measures of retaliation. The Chinese foreign office has sent several demands to Blaine to repeal the act, but wa have re ceived no reply from him. Of course, congress alone can pet aright the present outrage, but the state department is the proper channel of negotiation. After this exclusion law was passed, in defiance of all treaties Secretary Bayard and the former minister from China, Chang Yen Hoon, conferred and the result was a proposed new treaty with Chin* which contained exclusion. When thii treaty was submitted to the emperor antf council it was instantly repudiated. The indignation against the minister was suoh that his house was burned and all his property within reach destroyed. "What is the present state of the ques tion in China?" "The council of state, which jtids the emperor, is simply waiting to hear from the United States foreign office. Your repu tation lor fair dealing and honesty with foreign nations has been such in the paet that we cannot believe you mean to break: a treatv without reason or excuse, but that you have done so there can be no doubt, and if we find the United States means to persist in excluding Chinese from its shores we shall proceed to the same tactics, and the Chinese government will forbid the landing of American citizens in the empire." "How about American citizens now resi dents of China, and American capital in vested tber?" "Ail these will be matters of detail which the council of state will arrange. I am aware there are a great many millions of American capital invested in China. American interests in China are, of course, vastly more im portant financially than our invested int erest in the United States, and any rup ture between the two nations will, of course, injure American investments." "What is velieved in China to be the rea son for our exclusion laws?" "It is generallp supposed to be the work of politicians. I know, of course, your argument about cheap labor and the dev struction of fair wages. Yoa say Chinamen come to America and save all the money they can, and then take it home with them; that they do not become citizens. Well, is not that exactljr what every American in China is doing? The Chinese have built your great western railroads, and their cheap labor has made possible, and has carried through to suc cessful competition, works and enterprises which would have been impossible with other labor. The Chinese are satisfied with small wages and do not strike. Whan they are driven out the capitalists will be at the mercy of other foreign labor ers, who will not work as cheaply and who will combine and strike and jeopardize cap ital. Chinese cheap labor has been tried in various parts of the world and has always been a success. RIFLE FESTIVAL IX BERLIK. Grand Historical Parade Led by Ameri can .Harkniuen.
