Demoeratie Senators are Opposed to the Nicaragua Canal Bill. The Houc Tied Cp By Fillbaatertag— The Widow of General Barrnndla to Sao the United States for • Mil lion Dollars. WABHixerojr CITT, Feb. 20.— The House coinage committee today, by a vote of 6 to 4, decided to report the Senate free coinage bill adversely, with the recommendation that it do noi pas 3. The four members in the minority were Carter, Bartine, Bland and Williams. The two first named are Republicans and the last two Democrats. The majority was: Wickham, Walker, Comstock, Knapp, Taylor, Republicans, and Tracy, Wilcox, Vaux, Democrats. When tne free coinage men found they were defeated on the Senate free coinage bill, Carter movert to substitute, first, a bill for free coinage of the American product, and next, one for purchase of 10,000,000 ounces of silver for three months and QfiOOfiOO ounces each month there after. Both were defeated. Only Carter, Bland and Bartine voted for the first, and Carter and Bartine for the second proposition. Tlie Senate free coinage bill will now go to the foot of the overburdened calendar, with a committee recommendation that it does not pass. Before the committee its hearing this morning, Congressman-elect Sockiess Jerry Simpson of Kansas argued in favor of free coinage. The farmers demanded more money, he said. He did not care if free coinage caused foreign silver to come to the United States. He wished it would. It could not come too soon, for it would give the people more money. Alonxo Waddell.of South* Dakoto. Pierre Humbert, of Boston, and Senator Stewart spoke in tavor of free coinage, and E. B. Bacon, representing the Chamber of Com merce and Merchants' Association of Mil waukee, submitted an argument against five coinage. The silver bill will be reported to the House tomorrow. The majority report will not go into an argument on the ques tion. Silver men generally are disposed to take today's action as practically the end oi silver legislation for this congress. An effort will I# made to have the bill acted upon by the House, but its friends do not express a hope of success. The anti-silver men are well pleased, and Representative Walker expressed the opinion this after noon that the bill would never see light again in this confresa. SENATE PROCEEDINGS. Nicaragua Bill tinier Dlwanloa and Democrats Opposing It. W*»HWOTOS CITT, Feb. 20.— The Senate today passed forty-live pension bib's and then proceeded to consideration ef the Nicaragua canal bill. Vest in opposing the bill said if Great Britain assunuHl that the Clayton-Bulwer treaty was in exis tence. and the Senate had no intimation that it did not. then it was fair to assume that the government of Great Britain would act as the government of the United States would act under similar circum stances. If Great Britain should, in spite of the Clayton-Bulwer treaty, undertake to build a canal across the isthmus without the consent of the United States, would Great Britain be satished when told that her conduct as to Belize and the Mos quito coast had destroyed the Clayton- Bulwer treaty ? If the senators were pre pared to say *to the British empire that they would determine the question with out any reference to her interests or wishes, then let. them say that, and ac cept what would be the consequence—if not war, a condition of animosity, an tagonism and distrust, which would oper ate injuriously on the interests of both countries and of the world. Edmunds asked if Vest thought the bill w: > a violation of any obligation of the United States toward Great Britain or anv other foreign country. Vest— 1 th;nk linlesg Great Britain ha* itself atrog;ited the tr-'jjty this d'x-s. The remainder of Vest's speech was de voted to an argument that the interests of the I'nited States were sacrificed to those of the concessionaries of the canal com pany, who had organized among them selves a construction company with which the maritime company had made con tract s. Morgan explained that if the work had to be done by the company it would cost (as the bonds would have to be sold at «0 percent... and interest have to hie paid on the stock while work was in progress) s24o.l'M\o | A while under the pending bill the cos: would not exceed : so, instead ol shippers having to pay so..jn a ton, they would not ha>e to puv more than SI a ton. Stewart gave notice of an amendment providing tha: engineers of the army shall n..vc sii;*-rvision and control of the con struction of the canal and the work be subject to the laws, rules and regulations of congress or the war department. Davis opposed the bid. The pending proposition was. in plain terms, a subsidv to the extent of $100.«"i00,0to to build a work lying entirely out of the national domain and traversing a foreign country. It was his opinion, if the canal was to be con structed at ail, it should be done by the government directly, like any other work of public improvement. Edmunds spoke in defense and advocacy of the bill. and without a: tion the Senate adjourn ed. HOt SK PROCEEDINGS. Democrat* Filibustering -train—Hardly Anything Accomplished. WASHIXGTOS CITY, Feb. 20.— 1n tbe House Cannon reported from the commit tee on rules a resolution for the immediate consideration of busine-s reported by the committee on judiciary, tbe r.rst bill to be one for tbe relief of the supreme court, with Senate amendments. After an ineffectual effort by Blount and Breckinridge to defeat the resolution, Can non took the door, statins: that he would say a few words as to the merits of the proposition. McMillin of Tennessee inquired whether Cannon s object was not the prevention of the forty-minute debate allowed under the rule?. Cannon replied in the affirmative. In view of dilatory motions aireadv made on the Democratic side, under the lead of McMilun. the Republicans accepted no tice from that side that it did not desire to facilitate business. MtMi;;:n '■a.d the Democrats would met t Cannon's programme at every point. Blount moved to recommit the resolu tion. and on the yeas and navs the great b'xly of the I>emocrats left the hall. The vote was: Yeas 12. nays 150. the clerk not ing a quorum. The question th-»n recurred on the de mand i >r the previous question, and. hav ing demanded the yeas and nays. McMil hn called the from the cloak rooms to his support. Having obeved the signal Ion? enoueti to accomplish' "McMil lin s object, me iteiuocr&t* once more ais- appeared. The motion was earned, 150 to ' • <l aorT ini being noted. The resolution was then agreed to, I<V> to *1 aod the court bill *a« immediately taken up. The Iterate amendments were non-concurred in and a conference ordered. The House substitute for the bill fixing the salaries of United States district judges was withdrawn, leaving the Senate bilfin Us original form, providing that the salar ies should oe $5,000 per annum. McMillin offered an amendment reducing the salaries to $-#,(AiO. To this J. D. Taylor offered an amendment providing that the salaries •hall be increased SSOO. No quorum voted and the House took a recess. DAXIEL9 WINS FIKHT DECISION. Suit of Northrra Pari fir for Land la Vanroover District Dismissed. Washington Citt, Feb. 30.—[Special.]— The case of the Northern Pacific railroad against W. Byron Daniels, in the Van couver district, was dismissed. Daniels has won the first decision, but has now re linquished his claim. The state of Washington seems to be unable to arrange in a satisfactory manner its public lands, granted by the national government from the public domain for school and other purposes. First, it was impossible to find surveyors to do the work at the rates established bv law, and now the settlers are rushing in so thickly that it is impossible to find good land in sufficiently large tracts to overcome the difficulty. "Now legisla tion i» asked, as now the emergency can bet met oniy in that way. The Washing ton legislature has forwarded a bill it would like congress to pass, setting aside from the public domain 1.000,000 acres, to be known as state reserve, from which selections can be made until her claim is satisfied. The state agrees to restore what is left to the public domain for settlement. BARBIXOIA'S WIDOW 81* ES. Halted States Asked for SI ,000,000 In demnity for the General'* Mnrder. New York, Feb. 3». —Transits Aurante, widow of General Barrundia. killed by Guatemalan officers on board the Ameri can steamer Acapuieo, has, according to the World, officially announced her intention of asking the United States government for $1,000,000 indemnity for kiiiing her husband. Papers in the suit have heen served on Secretary Blaine. They recite that the widow and her minor daughters, Victoria Ana Maria, Antonia Dolores Liu*, and Octavia. the married daughter of Teresa Barrundia, wife of Ramon Bengoches, demand SI,OOO - from the government for General Har rundia's murder. They declare that in his message of December 1, 1890, President Harrison . admits it was by order of Minister Mizner that , Barrundia was apprehended and this led to his being murdered by the agents of the Guatemalan government. In the same message the paper continues: It is conditionally affirmed that Mizner over stepped hi» autnority when he issued his order and acted contrary to all established precedents in similar cases.

Beatty Fighting for Idaho Judgeship. WASHIS&TON CITY, Feb. 20.—James H.

VICTOEIA, Feb. 2ft.—^Special.]—The steamer West Indian, which arrived from Chile yesterday, brings news that when H. B. M. ship Warspite, with Admiral Hoth am aboard, reached Valparaiso, the cap tain's gig, which was sent ashore for mail, was mi-itaken for a rebel boat by the garri son and fired upon.

Los PON, Feb. 2Ti.—An official dispatch to the Chilean legation states that the revo lution is confined to the rebel squadron and the troops at Mariposa.

From Jersey City West the Sorrow of the People Shown. Bolls Aro Tolled ta Every City as the Mourners Paw—Preparation* In St. Loais for the Interment To«lajr—The Pall-Bearers Chosen. ST. Louie, Feb. 30. —The storm of rain and sl<*et ceased tonight and was followed by a cold wind, which promises to get the streets in presentable shape for the funeral procession tomorrow. Pali-bearers were selected this evening as follows: Military—General Pope, Gen eral Be<-kwith, General A. J. !*niith. Gen eral Turner, General Warner, Brigadier- General lJarriger and Commander Cotton, I niu-d States navy. Citizens —Judge Samuel Treat. Daniel R. Garrison, Isaac H. Sturgeon, Thomas E. Tutt, ii. P. Tan sey. IxDiASAPoue, Feb. 20.—When the funeral train left Harrisbnrg La*<t night at 11:30. a cold rain was falling, and this con tinued all night and when the train ar rived at Pittsburg it was still raining. The run during the night was devoid of accident, crowds of old soldiers and citi zens assembling at the stations along the line to see the train go through. At Edgewood, Pa., the train stopped long enough for the three Lieutenant Pitch children to get on. As the funeral train neared Pittsburg and road crossings be came mure numerous, group alter group of people were to be seen standing there, only intent on honoring in their humble way the remains of the dead hero. Soon after they got on the train the grand children were taken by Lieutenant Pitch, their father, into the composite car, that they might see the casket in which lay all that was mortal of their il lustrious grandfather. Nearly all the peo ple on the train arose and got ready for breakfast, as Pittsburg was reached at 7:47. When the train arrived at Pittsburg bells tolled and minute guns were tired, and all the dags drooped in the rain at half-mast. At thedepot was• large crowd, a regiment ol the National Guard and all the Grand Army posts of the city in line, and when the tram stopped they saluted. The departure from Pittsburg was at 8:10. Breakfast was served as soon as the train got outside the city limits, and while the travelers were thus employed the storm cleared away. The funeral train ran into an op»n switch at Manstield but was only delayed five minutes. But for the fart that the train was running slowly a collision would have occurred. At Dennison, 0., a large crowd gathered at the station, including many G. A. R. veterans. The door of the funeral car was opened and they were al lowed to take a look at the casket. At Newcomers town all the public school children stood in a line as the train passed, with heads uncovered, and carrying small flags edged with black. At 12 20 the train stopped at Newark. Here the wife of Judge Granger and her son. Sherman Granger, got on the train. The doors of the car in which the body was contained were opened and the G. A. R. veterans passed by, each one taking a look at the casket as he passed. The entire trip from Pittsburg to this point has been interspersed with demon strations of sorrow by all classes of people. The family of General Sherman them selves became, as the day passed and those signs of sorrow multiplied, more and more impressed with the great love the people bore for the lost one. As the train rolled into the station at Columbus the space on the upper side was crowded with people, and for squares away they were in a solid that fully 20,000 people were struggling to a view of the car. Comrades of McCoy G. A. R. Post were in the sta tion, accompanied by a drum corps. Senator Sherman, President Hayes. General Ewing and others of the party from the train had a brief talk with relatives about Columbus, who came to the train. Quite a number of relativs of the deceased general from Lancaster and Zanesville joined the party at that point. The rain was falling in torrents and a high wind blowing when Saiut Paris w.v reached, at 5:30. Flasrs could be seen at half-mast on many buildings and schools, and church bells were tolling. A big crowd, including a company of G. A. R. men and one of Sons of Veterans, was at the depot. At Piqua a repetition ot the scene of Saint Paris was witnessed. Just as dinner was over Richmond. Tnd.. was reached. Governor Hovey here boar led the train to escort the remains to Indian apolis. Richmond gare the train the grandest reception it had received since it left New York. Over 1,000 people were at the sta tion. As soon as the old soldiers on the platform heard General Schotieid was on the train they called for him. General Schofield came to the platform, and in a brief speech »aid: There are * thousand of my children here that I know. Tt is under sad cond;t;r>;is we inset. We have all lost a comrade and friend. 1 Take good care of yourselves, bays, and rood bye. When Schorield finished speaking tears were rolling down the cheeks of many of the group of old soldiers. When the train started the boom of cannon was heard, church bells began to toll and the Rich mond Light Guard fired a salute. Indianapolis was reached at 10 o'clock. A Murderer Held for Trial.
