WASHIHOTOK CITT, March 29.— [Special.]
—Senator Alien was absent today when
the discussion over the admission of the
senators from Washington, Wyoming and
Montana was begun in the Benate. Mr.
Allen left for New York on Monday and
returns to this city tonight. It has hardly
been the impressiou that the debate over
the admission of these senators would pro
ceed so rapidly as was the case today. The
ontlook is very favorable to an early settle
ment of this vexed question. Senator
Allen will probably be present in the sen
ate when the matter comes up again, but
it is not considered necessary by him that
he should personally listen to the debate,
either for or against him, or solicit any
▼otea in his favor when the mat
ter cornea before the senate for
final settlement, as has been previously
telegraphed to the POST-IKTXLLIGISCW.
Senator Allen shows no disposition to se
cure his seat by appointment, unless it is
definitely settled that the constitution
provides that the appointments in such
cases can be made by governors of states
where the legislatures failed to elect. If
the matter is disposed of at an early date,
Benator Alien will return at once to Walla
Walla, accompanied by Mrs. Allen and
their children. In the event of the matter
not being settled so that the senator csn
leave by the middle of next week, Mrs.
Allen will depart for home and take the
children with her, and the senator will
follow just as soon as possible for him to
get away.
President Cleveland is being criticised
for his appointment today of Congress
man Stump as immigration commissioner,
an office that will be a very important one
during the next few years. It is Btated
that the steamship companies brought
all their influence to bear in favor
of the appointment of Stump, whose
knowledge of the subject is con
fined to his service as chairman of
the house committee on immigration. Mr.
Btump is charged with endeavoring to
stranglethe immigration bill in the house
by putting in a bill that would have been
of little or no value. Mr. Lodge, Mr.
Lind, of Minnesota, and other members
charged in speeches on the floor of the
house that Mr. Stump's bill was directly
in the interest of the steamship
companies and he did not then
deny the statement. In making this
appointment. Mr. Cleveland has incurred
the hostility of the American Federation
of Labor and the Knights of Labor.
These two organizations had a candidate
for the place, and a strong one. They
urged the appointment of Herman
Schultz, who was one of the commission
ers sent to Europe to investigate the immi
gration question, and he took the only
proper way of finding out the real
methods in connection with the sub*
ject. He came over in the steerage
and put himself to a great deal
of trouble and inconvenience to ascertain
the truth. He had strong backing for the
place, and the labor men protested against
Btump's appointment, and urged that of
Schultz. For once Mr. Cleveland went
contrary to his faithful adviser. Senator
Vilas. Vilas told the president that to ap
point Stump would hurt the administra
tion, and warmly recommended Schults,
but the president ignored the advice.
Secretary Smith has announced that on
next Friday he will hear all persons inter
ested in the permits recently granted by
Secretary Noble and since suspended to
the Big Blackfoot Milling Company and
Bitter Root Developing Company to cut
50 per cent, of the timber on about 26,000
acres of land in Montana. Secretary
Smith holds strongly to the opinion that
the granting of permits to cnt laree bodies
of timber in the West is against the public
At the treasury department today the

The senate has confirmed the following
nominations: Max Judd, of Missouri,

retary of the interior; John S. Seymour,
of Connecticut, commissioner of patents;

to the senate the nomination of Herman
Stump, of Maryland, to be superintendent
of immigration.
President Cleveland has tendered the
office of solicitor general to Lawrence Max*
well, of Cincinnati.
Secretary Herbert has dec ded to name
the torpedo boat No 2, now being built at

Hartford eonr.tr, MarTiani. on Augnst 8. 1837.
After receiving a classical education, he studied
law and was admitted to the bur in 1866. He

Pogh Makes a strong Speetb la Favor
of Seating Appointed Senator*.
WA£H!SGTOS CITT. March 29.— 1n the
senate today Senator Hoar cai.ed up as a
question of pnviiege tne resolution re
ported by him from the committee on
privileges and elections, declaring Lee
Mia lie entitled to b« admitted to * teat u
senator from Montana. Senator Harris
suggested that the senate was not ready to
•ct on the question, as the reports of the
majority and minority had only been de
livered today. Senator Hoar said his rea
son for calling up the subject today was
that some senators were about to leave the
city today and desired to address the sen
ate. The resolution was then taken up.
Senator Pugh, who joined in the report of
the majority, proceeded to address the
senate in favor of that report. He argued
from debates in the constitutional conven
tion that the "existence of a vacancy from
any cause" was the crucial test of the
power of a governor to fill a vacancy. The
vacancy "happened." he argued, if it ex
isted. In illustration of the possible evils
that might result from prohibiting gov
ernors to fill vacancies in the senate, Sen
ator Pugh said the force bill would now be
a law if one senator opposed to it had been
kept out of his seat by the operation ot
such a rule. Three or more political par
ties, he said, existed by regular organiza
tion in several states. These parties fa
vored specific principles and policies that
were fundamental and irreconcilable. Was
it right in such a case for the senate to es
tablish such tyrranical rules that these
parties should surrender their opinions
and convictions; disregard their pledges
and fidelity to their constituents and
come to some agreement for the election
of a senator.
A lengthy discussion followed, in which
numerous contentions were made and
argued, many of the senators indicating
concurrence with the views of the minor
ity, adverse to the admission of appointed
senators. The matter then went over till
tomorrow, Mitchell having the floor to
defend the minority report.
Power, rising to a question of personal
privilege, referred to an article in this
morning's Washington Pott, quoting from
remarks made against him in the senate
chamber by Senator Tfirpie two or three
years asro when the question of his right
to a seat was pending. He said his suc
cess in party strife had caused his compet
itor to try to vent his spleen on him
through the press and in every conceiva
ble manner possible. He demanded the
most careful and thorough investigation
by a special committee and asked that the
cause of the remarks by Turpie be thor
oughly looked into.
Vest said that if the senate was to ap
point a committee to enter into an investi
gation of all the personal charges against
senators that appeared in the public press
it might as well dismiss all other business
and go into that matter exclusively. After
further debate Chandler offered a resolu
tion referring Power's request to the com
mittee on privileges and elections.
Gorman suggested that the resolution
go over for the present and hoped the sen
ate would fix a day hereafter for the con
sideration of all such matter*. After fur
ther debate the senate, on motion of Gor
man, went into executive session and soon
The senate committee on foreign rela
tions held a meeting this morning. It is
understood that while favorable to making
public the text of the Russian treaty, they
were unable to agree upon a favorable re
port by reason ot disagreements relative to
the correspondence accompanying the con
vention. A well known senator, cham
pion of general humanitarian legislation,
stated that when published the treaty
would be found neither more nor less ob
jectionable than several other treaties in
operation for some years. Criticisms, he
says, are due to a conception of the effect
of the instrument based upon garbled ex
tracts, surreptitiously obtained, o( the
treaty as first sent to the senatp.
How H« Killed Hal (tat —Only Intended
to Drag Him.
JACKSON, Mich., March 2). Latimer
was this afternoon placed in the solitary
cell, where be will undoubtedly remain
for some time. As he entered "solitary"
his wonderful nerve, which has stood by
him ever since the murder, completely de
serted him and he broke down and cried
like a child.
JACKSON, Mich., March 29. —It. Irving
Latimer, the triple murderer who was
caught last night at Jerome, was brought
here again and lodged in the penitentiary
at 2:15 o'clock this morning. During the
lang ride from Jerome, he told the story
of his escape. He said be had been at
work on the plan over a year and had
made an exhaustive study of the effects of
poisons, lie declared he had no intention
of killing Haight and gave Gill the same
dose he did Haight. He said he would
rather have rotted in prison than have
killed Haight. The dose he gave them
was a mixture of opium and prusaic acid.
The intended effect was for the opium to
cause sleep and the prussic acid to make
it take effect at once. He administered it
in a glass of lemonade. There was
certainly a mistake somewhere, as he had
no intention of doing anything more than
make them sleep half an hour. The
rattling of the dish when Haight fell dis
couraged all his plans as it brought Rice
to the scene, and but foe that he would
have been able to leave the prison, drive
rapidly away in a buggy and before
successful pursuit could have been organ
ized, he would have been 200 miles away.
He declared that Gill was not to blame in
any way, except for carelessness. Latimer
told the story of his wanderings after his
escape and said he might have escaped
any way, but he sprained his ankle, which
handicapped his movements and settled
all chance of his getting away.
The Atlanta flank Investigation.
ATLAUTA, Ga., March 29.—The following
sensational story has been printed here:
The investigation of the Gate City Bank
defalcation by the United States grand
jury has been brought to a sudden stop.
The grand jury was ready today to take
up the Gate City case. A number of new
bills against citizens of Atlanta, charging
them with violating the law in connection
with the failure of the Gate City Bank, had
been elaborately drawn and the witnesses
are at Land. All was ready to go on with
the investigation, and sensational devel
opments were expected, but the investiga
tion was summarily stopped by Attorney
General Olney wiring from Washington
City to suspend action until lurther no
WASHINGTON CITT, March 29.— Attorney
General Oinev could not be seen tonight in

Startling Discovery on the
Steam Collier Bawnmore.
The Captain Says It Was a Plan of
the Sailors' Union.
Mnrderer Hill Safely Landed In Colfax
Jail—Or. Kinkier Removed From
Oflßee—A Portland Bnrglar Nearly
Chokes an Old Woman to Death.
KAHAIMO, March 29L—[Special.]—A dia
bolical attempt to wreck the Bawnmore,
while on her way np, was frustrated by
mere chance. Yesterday one of the crew
was sent into the after hold to do some
necessary work and while doing so came
across a large and suspicious bundle. He
immediately reported to Chief Officer Ken
nedy what he had discovered, bnt at the
command of the officer he refused to go be
low and bring it up. The sailor said;
"Not much. If you want it, you go and
get it."
Nothing loath, the chief officer went
below, and after a careful examination he
picked up a bundle containing twelve
pounds of dynamite, which had several
strings attached. He cut the strings and
then took the package on deck and placed
it in a bucket of water. He found one of
the strings attached to a revolver and
thence to the hammer of an alarm
clock. Another string was attached
to a rat trap which had a
cross-bar affixed so that the jolting of the
vessel would cause the bar to set the trap
off and fire the revolver and then explode
the caps around the dynamite and blow
the bottom out of the vessel. How the in
fernal machine failed to accomplish the
dastardly task is a miracle. Intense ex
citement prevailed on board when the dia
bolical plot was discovered, and every other
part of the vessel was carefully searched
for fear of some other hiddee enemy.
A satchel containing old clothes was found
by the clerk which had evidently been
carried by the miscreant, who placed it
there to allay suspicion in case be was in
terrupted. It is openly claimed by the
captain that it is part of the programme
of the union to avenge the imprisonment
of certain ot their number for their pre
vious trouble that occurred with the ves
sel here, and in consequence publie in
dignation is taking the place of sympathy
in their cause.
Whatcom County People Laugh at Prop
osition to Use a Skagit Pass.
WHATCOM, March 29.— [Special.]—The
news published in the POST-INTELLIGENCES
Monday of the appointment of a commit
tee by the people of the Upper Skagit val
ley to visit Whatcom and protest before
the Cascade road commission against the
route designated by law for the construc
tion of a state highway across the moun
tains to Okanogan county, occasioned
some surprise here, not unmixed with in
dignation. If he people of the Upper
Bkagit are really taking themselves seri
ously in this matter, they must be either
wonderfully cheeky or simple-minded to
believe for a minute that it is possible to
induce the road commissioners to Ignore
the express provision of the law, which
designates the route and locates the road
over the Cascade pass. The late Tiiton
Sheets, to whom reference is made in the
article in question, was never employed by
the people of this county to hunt for a
ronte across the range, but he did make
some surveys for the Northern Pacific and
also made a trip for a local company here.
About the time of his death, which oc
curred about a year ago at Friday Harbor,
an article concerning him was published,
in which the statement was made that he
regarded the Mount Baker pass as the best
between the Columbia and Fraser rivers.
Certainly it is not "a well known fact"
that the route proposed is in the least de
gree impracticable, or that it would be
nothing more than a "summer trail."
Commissioners Cryderman and Hanne
gan are both familiar in a general way
with a considerable portion of the two
routes under discussion, and both are of
the opinion that the northern one is much
preferable to the other, taking into consid
eration the objects sought to be obtained.
As Mr. Cryderman is a civil engineer by
profession, and Mr. Hannegan is an expe
rienced woodsman and timber cruiser,
their opinions are entitled to more than
ordinary consideration. It was largely
upon the advice and through the influence
of Mr. Hannegan that the route was out
lined as it was in the bill.
The Slayer of Lang ford Summers Be
hind the Hars at Last.
COLFAX, March 28.— [Special. |—Ed Hill,
who cruelly murdered Langford Summers
at Garfield, in this county, last summer,
was returned to Whitman county this aft
ernoon and will undoubtedly answer with
his life for his crime. Hill was captured
near Phienix in the latter part of Febru
ary. On Sheriff Lathrum going for him
he was detained by habeas corpus pro
ceedings. Pending their settlement HilW
escaped. Last week word was received
that Hill had been caught near Globe,
Ariz. Sheriff Lathrum and Deputy Mc-
Lean left immediately and returned with
the prisoner today.
Hill's crime had so angered the people
of the county that it was feared that the
mob might take the prisoners, and the
officers on the train took their man into
an express car, and the train coming in
on a down steep grade was permitted to
run away past the depot to within a block
of the courthouse and jail. At the depot
were assembled 400 people, who watched
the train dash by and did not discover the
maneuver until ths train stopped and the
officers alighted. Hill was badly fright
ened and refused to see a reporter or any
one else. The story told of Hill's last ar
rest is one of the few good things told of
him. It is said that, getting homesick for
Whitman county, Hill gave himself up to
a friend named Blevins so the latter could
secure the reward of SI,OOO.
A Brother and Nephew Am Residents of
Clallam Coantjr.
PORT Asosira, March 29.—[Special.]—
Silas W. Lamoreux, the newly appointed
commissioner of the general land office,
has a brother residing in this county.
Judge M. V. B. Lamoreux, of Hearer, and
a nephew, F. O. Lamoreux, attorney
at law of this city. Judge Lamo
reux, unlike his brother, is a
Republican and a member of the
executive committee of the county Repub
lican committee. He was a member of
ths county lUpublicaa conrsntioa and
on* of the most active workers in the Re
publican party in this county. His
nephew, F. O. Lamorenx, however, is a
Democrat, and was a delegate from thia
county to the late Democratic convention.
It seems that the politics of the family are
somewhat mixed, as F. O. Lamoreux is a
son of Judge Lamorenx. It may all beex
plained, however, by the fact that Judge
Lamoreux was a brave Union soldier dur
ing the rebellion, serving with distinc
It is hoped here that the local relatives
of the commissioner will urge the ap
proval of the several townships that have
already been surveyed, thus giving the
settlers titles to their homes. This is
expected,ss the relations and attachments
of the entire family are moat pleasant.
Mr. Home's Turn Has Expired—His Of.
He* in Good Shape for Mr. Case.
TACOMA. March 20—( Special.]— Four
years ago today the present postmaster at
Tacoma received his commission. He did
not assume office until May 1. Owing to
leakages that could not be traced, it has
been stated that Mr. Hogue did not during
his administration "make wages." He was
asked about it today, and said:
Including the mooey order shortages, tke leak
age has not amounted to over |3OO a year. For
the past two years all the men have been under
bonds, and therefore they had to pay for all
shortages in their various departments, tl the
same could be traced to them. There have been
instances when it haa been impossible to trace a
missing package or a shortage to anybody, and
in such cases the postmaster has to settle. At
least, I have always settled. At the last reckon
ing in the mouey order department there was a
shortage of s2*), which was promptly paid by
the man in charge. Thia shortage was brought
about by carelessness.
When Mr. Hogue assnmed charge of the
Tacoma postoffice the salary was $2,800 a
year. From time to time it was raised in
amounts of S2OO, until now it ia<s3,2ooi
Mr. Hogue is convinced that the lot of a
postmaster is a hard one.
It is believed that A. P. Case will be
named to succeed Mr. Hogue, as he haa
the nominal indorsement of the state com
mittee. When it was announced that
Fourth Assistant Fostmaster Maxwell
proposed to recognize the Democratic or
ganizations in making selections, it was
hailed with much joy by the friend* of
the state committee here.
B. F. Jossey, who has the indorsement
of Col. C. W. Griggs, and who went to
Washington City to press his claims for
the postmastershipi has been sick during
most of his stay in that city.
Leonard Jnmps From n Train In lews
on the Way to the Penitentiary.
TACOMA, March 29.— [Special.]—Harvey
Leonard, the convicted counterfeiter, of
Tacoma, who jumped from a train in IOWA
this morning while being taken to Detroit,
Mich., to serve seven years imprisonment,
formerly resided at Old Tacoma. He,
with Frank Tracy, Thomas Bowley and
Ed Kamsav, left here last Friday in
charge of Deputy United States Marshal
A. M. Chesney, who was formerly chief of
police in this city, and Deputies W. A.
Prince, W. W. Archer and I* D. Kings
bury. Rowley and Eamsay were to serve
eight years and Tracy six. While oa Mo-
Neil's island Leonard attempted to • scape
several times, once succeeding in reaching
Anderson island.
CHICAGO, March 29.—The Northwestern
passenger train from the West this morn
ing brought ne,ws of the escape of Harvey
Leonard by Jumping from the train near
Colo, la., while tunning thirty miles an
hour. The other three prisoners, Frank
Tracy, E. Bamsay end Thomas Bowley,
are stdl in custody. Two of the deputy
marshal* left the train to pursue the fugi

Post TOWHSZHD, March 29.— {Special.]—
A serious muddle has arisen In the city
treasurer's office. Recently City Treas
urer Bowen obtained permission from
Mayor Tucker to go East. He appointed
a deputy and departed. Since then mani
cipal warrants to the amount of over
91,000 have been issued. The deputy
treasurer indorsed the warrants so
that they would draw the legal
rate of interest. It now transpires that
there is no authority either in the charter
or ordinances for the appointment of a
treasurer's deputy. Consequently the in
dorsements on the warrants are illegal,
and they will bear no interest until prop
erly indorsed by the treasurer himself.
Tne question will be passed upon by City
Attorney D. C. Smith and some action
will be taken next week.
Old Portland Lady Choked by Barglar.
PoKTT.AJT D, March 29.— [Special.]—At 9
o'clock this morning Policeman Murphy,
patrolman in Stephens' addition on the
east side, was attracted by loud shrieks for
help in a woman's voice from a house
which he was passing. Breaking open the
front door he found an old woman
lying prostrate on tlie tloor who,
upon returning to consciousness,
said she had awakened to find
a burglar in her room and upon grappling
with him he had choked her into uncon
sciousness. Everything in the room indi
cated a desperate struggle. The lady'a
name is Mrs. Catherine Lyuch. She is 68
years old and lives alone. The timely
arrival of the policeman undoubtedly
saved her life.

lieved that his death was the result of an
accident, but the coroner's inquest now in

the suspicion that a crime has been com
mitted. Shaefer was returning home from
