Washington, July a. In the Senate
a message from President Harrison as
to postal and cable communication be
tween the Unitetl States and Latin
American States, and tho celebration of
tho fourth centennial of the discovery of
America, wns presented and referred.
Mr. Allison moved that the adjournment
today Iw till Monday. Agreed to.
Plumb offered a resolution directing
the Secretary of the Interior to inform
the Senate whether he has any knowl
edge of any guarantee, actual or pro
jKjsed, by the Union Pacific railroad
company to any other corporation, more
especially to the Oregon Navigation
Company, tho Denver, South Park and
Pacitic railroad; whether the Union
Pacific has paid out of its surplus earn
ings or otherwise tho indebtedness or
any part thereof of these or any other
companies, and if so whether such guar
antee payment (or both) is in accord
ance Willi law and consistent with the
obligations of the Union Pacillc.
Butler sarcastically suggested that the
Secretary of tho Interior report if he had
any knowledge why the Senate does not
proceed to the consideration of the re
port of the select committee on Pacific
railroads. He supioseil the caucus
had acted on the matter.
This led to a tilt between Mr. Ilutler
and Mr. Edmunds, which consumed
some time.
Mr. Edmunds said that as far as he
was concerned he would be glad to have
the resolution embrace a call to know
whether the Interior Department is in
possession of information that at least
one of tho government aided railroads
has not ever since tho passage of the
Thurman act deliberately discharged its
injunctions in respect of increasing its
obligations and making dividends. If
it be true that in spito of law, with its
penalties imposed, there has not been
force enough in the administration,
either under Democratic or Hepublican
auspices, to compel theso companies to
obey the law he did not know what use
there was of passing a settlement bill at
The resolution was finally agreed to.
The subject of tho bill passed yester
day as to land patents remaining un
delivered and tho facilities offered a firm
of Washington attorneys to make u list
of them was brought up by .Mr. Berry of
Arkansas, who had a letter read sent
by tlieso attorneys to the Clerk of
Columbia county, Ark., offering to stip
ply patents in that county for $4 each,
of which fee tho clerk was to retain $1.
A letter from Assistant Commissioner
Stone (acting commissioner) to this
linn extending such facilities to it, and
n letter from Assistant Secretary Bussey,
certifying to the reputable character of
the firm, were also read. Berry said if
any explanation could be given of that
transaction or any excuso for that
most scandalous conduct on the
purt of government ollicers he would
be glad to hear it. There wcro 250,000
of these undelivered patents and this
linn would at the low rates mentioned
in its letter draw a million dollars from
the citizens unjustly and without
authority. He understood that one
member of this firm, Thos. II. McKeo,
was an officer of the 1 louse.
The matter was discussed at some
length bv Messrs. Teller, Haddock and
Mr. Haddock stateil that under tho
present administration the number of
undelivered patents had been reduced
by some 70,000. The Senate bill to es
tablish a United States land court was
then discussed until 2 p. in., when the
Postal and Ship Subsidy bills caino up.
Vest continued his arguments against
the bills. Ho was as anxious as Mr.
Blaine to bring back the supremacy of
the United States on tho ocean and to
open the ports of South America to the
American products. That question was
also to be tho means to bring aliout that
end. The Senator from Maine, Fryo.
wanted subsidies. He, Vest, opposed
them in toto. Mr. Vest went
on to speak of tho late Pan American
Congrem, and sent to the clerk's desk
and had read a clipping from tho New
York Herald of a Buenos Ayres corres
pondent to show what SenorPierra, who
accompanied the Argentine delegates to
Washington, thought of the conference,
of Blaine and of the United States dele
gates. As soon as the clerks finished
reading this caustic criticism Howley
asked Vest whether ho know who wrote
that? Whether it was quite fair to have
printed such mess of irresponsible blaek
gmirdism? Vest replied: The gentle
man's name is given in tho communi
cation. Mr. Hawlcy "I rcnlllrm what I said,
that the man who speaks as ho does of
honorable gentlemen, and who says of
the American colleges that degrees can
be obtained for $50, says wilfully that
which is false."
Mr. Vest "Ho is tho secretary of a
society in Buenos Ayres and accom
panied tho delegation from tho Argen
tine Republic to this Pan-American
.Mr. Hawlcy "And you may add to
that description that he is a liar and
a blackguard."
Mr. Vest said the article is a criticism
of a public assembly and I had it read
to show the impression it mado upon a
prominent man who attended that con
ference in respect to the personnel of tho
conference and its objects. It was in
order to show that no wining and din
ing, no public exhibition, nothing but
self-interest would airect our commercial
relations with the peoplo of South
America. I havo had that article
as a communication published all
over the couujry, and in South America
to show that tho men who como hero
from South America ore among tho
keenest, shrowdest and most far-seeing
merchants of tho world and that when
we, by an international American con
ference, or by any other partic
ular means, seek to draw them away
from self-interest wo are simply fool
ing ourselves and throwing away the
money of the public. Mr. Vest went
on to say that if a subsidy system was
established it should lie made equal.
The cattle raisers Bhould lie subsidized
also. If he wanted to emasculate and
enervate tho people he would teach
them to depend upon the government.
Mr. Wilson of Maryland, addressed

Washington, July 3. Another un
availing confidence over tho silver bill
was held this morning. One question
upon which the conference is divided
is said to be whether only thoso certifi
cates to be issued in accordance with
tho bill shall be made legal tender, or
all certificates outstanding previous to
tho approval of the bill as well.
President Harrison signed the bill for
the admission of Idaho as a State this
morning at ten o'clock.
President Harrison left for Cape May
this afternoon having been previously
informed that the legislative appropria
tion bill would not be ready for his
action until next week.
Secretary Blaine left this afternoon
for Bar Harbor.
The otlicial report of the board ap
pointed to try the cruiser Philadelphia,
says tho average speed during the run
of 4 hours was 19.078 knots per hour
and that during the trial engines and
boilers worked in tho most satisfactory
manner. The vessel is in all respects
completo and ready for delivery in ac
cordance with the requirements of the
contract with certain slight modifica
tions. Tho stars and stripes will float over
the capitol tomorrow. It is a singular
fact that never before has the flag floated
on the exterior of that building except
when Congress is actually in session.
The new sorgeant-at-arms of the Senate,
having becofuo aware of this state of
things, called Senator Ingalls' attention
to the matter. A conference resulted in
Senator Ingalls, who is President pro
tern, directing that the national colors
bo flung to breeze tomorrow, the Fourth
of July.

Othera Speak.
Poiiti'nii, Me., July 3. Over a thous
and members of the association of the
Army of tho Potomac, including all the
leading officers and organizations, are
he in attendance upon the annual re
union. This afternoon General Francis
Walker delivered an oration and Hon.
Horatio King read a poem.
Hon. Hannibal Hamlin was received
with tremendous applause, and had
quite a reception on the stage. After
General Walker's review of the career
of tho Army of tho Potomac, General
Sherman was brought forward amid a
thunder of applause. He said that,
among other things, ho had learned,
since going upon these platforms, that
tho grand review of Washington ter
minated when the Army of the Poto
mac passed. He had an idea the
review occupied three days and that the
Army of tho Potomac occupied the first
day. Tho people in Washington did not
have a very good opinion of the western
armies aim thought wo wero rather dis
orderly. "Now I assure you," said the
old General, "my friends of the Army
of tho Potomac wero a better drilled
army than you were. I know it
because I was commanding general,
laughter. Sherman, then told in
numerous ways how he noted tho
faulty points on tho review of tho Army
of tho Patoinac and quietly sent word
to all his corps commanders that nicht
to look out for these things and with
good results. As to the patriotism
within hearts of the different corps no
ono needs to speak.
Hon. Hannibal Hamlin spoke briefly
and was followed by Generals Howard,
Dcvcns, Porter and Admiral Cherardi.
At tho business meeting, General Sel

Satisfaction Formally Expressed with the
Financial Status of the Local Directors
Appointment of Committees.
Cuicaoo, July 3. The first session
of the National World's Fair commission
ended to-day, a recess being taken till
October 3th.
At tho morning session a communica
tion was read from Col. Brown, repre
senting the mining interests of Col

committee to confer with the local
Ixxird regarding the proposed mineral
exhibit. Tho exhibit is to be under

and so forth being formed of various
mineral ores, arranged as found
in the earth. Keierred to the
committee on mines and mining.
Resolutions expressing the satisfac
tion of the commission with the finan
cial report of the local organization was
adopted after considerable discussion.
Tho question of an appropriation for
the pavment of lady managers was
referred to a committee.
A new committee was constituted to
be known as the Committee on Ma
chinery and Motive Power, consisting of
eight commissioners.
The Conimitteo on Titles and Local
Facilities, to which will be referred all
questions about site, transportation,
etc., was announced as follows: Com

They Are Hint for Light and Ornament In
Some Flares.
The seat of light in the glowworm is
in the tail, and proceeds from three lu
minous sacs in the last segment of the
alxlomen. The male has only two of
these, and tho light from them is com
paratively small. During favorable
weather the light grows steadily, but at
all other times it is not constant. The
fireflies of the tropics those composing
genus Lampyriii vary to the extent that
while certain species control this light,
others are without this power.
Tho larva of the glowworm is capable
of emitting light, but not to Ikj compared
to that of the developed insect Botli in
its nature and immature forms Lampyri
noclileua plays a useful part in tho econ
omy of nature. -To the agriculturist and
fruit-grower it is a special friend. Its
diet consists almost wholly of small
shelled snails, and it comes upon the
scene just when these farm and garden
pests are most troublesome. British
fireflies probably never yet figured as
personal ornaments to female beauty.
This is, and has always been, one
of their uses to the dusky
daughters of the tropics. They are often
studded in the coiled and braided hair,
and perform somewhat the same olfico
as the diamond for more civilized belles.
Spanish ladies and those of tho West
Indies inclose fireflies in bags of lace or
gauze, and wear them amid their hair
or disposed about their persons.
In the Spanish settlements fireflies
arc frequently used in a curious way
when traveling at night. Tho na
tives tie an insect to each great
toe, and on lishihg and hunting
expeditions make torches of thera by
fastening several together. The same
people have a summer festival, at which
the garments of tho young people are
covered with fireflies, and, being mount
ed on fine horses similarly ornamented,
tho latter gallop through the dusk, the
whole producing the effect of a largo
moving light.

Washington, July 3. An agreeement
has been entered into by Secretary
Blaine and Komero, Mexican Minister,
providing for the reciprocal crossing of
tho International boundary line
by troops of the United States and Mex
ico, when in close pursuit of hostile
Indians. Under this agreement a

Ho shall retire to his own territory as
soon as he shall havo fought the

In case of offenses whieli may be com

Indian Trail Found In Temporal Gulch,
near Crittenden, with tho CarcaMea of
the Dead Cattle Left Itehlnd.
Social Correspondence of The Republican.
Cmtti:mkn, Juno 30, 1890. On Sat
urday, June 21, the report was brought
to Crittenden that a small band of
Apaches had been seen in Temporal
Gulch, near here. Tho troops at Fort
Huachuca were immediately notified,
and a squad of ninety men under Lieu
tenant Brainard, accompanied by scouts
from here, set out for the gulch. Arriv
ing at tne springs in me guicn. a part,
of the carcasses of two beef cattle were
found, the remainder having been taken
off for meat.
The Nogales Herald of yesterday con
tained a little paragraph saying that the
report of the Indians' having been seen
in the gulch was false, which has greatly
stirred up tho residents of this vicinity,
many of whom declare that there are a
number of Apaches scouting about over
the country, tho assertions of the army
officers to the contrary, notwithstand
ing. Your correspondent today interviewed
Mr. A. J. Stockton, the scout, who
accompanied the troops in search of tho
Indians, and that gentleman mado the
following statement :
"I havo been in this country for thir
teen years, and I think I know some
soniething of the Apaches. In company
with Lieutenant Brainard and twenty
men, I went out to the Temporal Gulch
to see if wo could strike the Indians'
trail. They had killed a 4-year-old steer
and a yearling calf, and the evidence
showed distinctly that the calf had been
killed with a knife. Besides that, there
were marks of a riata around the horns,
which plainly indicates that tho animal
had been lassoed and thrown and then
stabbed. Both animals had been thrown
on the left side, the skin turned back
to the backbone and then tho
meat cut out. So many cattle
had tramped about in the gulch
that the trail there had been obliterated
but gojng up the mountain side I found
the trail of the two unshod horses and
called the soldiers' attention to them.
They soon led off into a cattle trail
where they were lost.
"It has been assorted that the cattle
had been killed by Mcscaleros, who were
out gathering mescal. I do not believe
anything ot the kind. In all my resi
dence hero I havo never known Mescal
eros to commit any depredations of that
kind. Besides no mescal had been gath
ered any place near the spring where
the cattlo wero slaughtered nor were
there any camp fires or other evidence
of Mescaleros having been in the vicin
ity." S. L. Parks, owner of the cattle killed,
said: "I am confident the work was
done by Indians. The oldest steer was
a fat one that I expected to take to Har
sliaw to butcher in a few days. No
Mescaleros have been seen on the ranges
near the gulch and I do not believe they
have ever been near there. Charley
Coyne who first Faw the Indians and
gave the alarm has been In theso parts
for ten years and knows Indians when
ho sees them. He was not over 400 or
500 yards away when he first saw them
and it is not likely that an old pioneer
like him wonld make any mistake at
that distance."
Several other old residents of this sec
tion were interviewed and all concurred
in-the views given by- Stockton and
Parks, and all believe that small bands
of Apaches are continually on the - rum
mage between the White Mountain "res
ervation and Sonora, and that murders
by them may be expected almost any
To Re Electrocuted During the First Week
In August.
Buffalo, N. Y., July 3. After a mar
velous struggle to save his life, the attor
neys of William Kemmler have finally
weakened. Kemmler was brought here

for the third time sentence of death was
passed on him. Judge Childs rendered
his previous sentence, the same to bo
carried into effect at Auburn prison dur

Intereatlnc Reason Why the President
Signed the Idaho Rill Yesterday
Instead of Waiting till Toil ay.
Washington, July 3. The Senate
amendment to the Wyoming Admission
bill would have lxen concurred in today
by the House had a quorum been
present. The point of no quorum was
made and Mr. Cannon of Illinois, ap
pealed to the House to permit the
adoption of the conference report, the
District of Columbia Appropriation bill
aud a concurrence in ths amendment to
the Wyoming bill without the point that
no quorum being present raised, saying
that he would then move to adjourn.
The House, however, adjourned with
out action. Tho Wyoming bill was en
rolled, ready for the signatures of tho
presiding officers, and it was believed
that, had the House adopted the amend
ment today, the President would have
approved the act before leaving the city.
Delegate Carey said this evening
that the amendment concerning
the Yellowstone Park had al
ready delayed the admission of Wyom
ing, but the Park was the wonderland
of the world and it would le worth
many world's fairs to the state in the next
century, and under the circumstances
the people of Wyoming would patiently
wait a few days more for the realization
of their great ambition.
The reason for the President's action
in signing tho Idaho bill today was an
interesting one. The President, it
seems, found a law ordaining that a
new star should be placed upon the
American flag for each new State at
the Fourth of July succeeding its ad
mission to the Union. The Presi
dent left it to Mr. Dubois, delegate
from Idaho, to decide whether to have
the bill signed at once and get the star
or leave the star over untilJuly 4, 181.
Mr. Dubois chose the star now and as a
result the bill was signed, and forty
three stars are due upon the flag to
He Shnota Into n Train and Wounds a
Los Anoki.es, Cal., July 3. Joe Soto,
the pugilist, this afternoon, in company
with three friends, took a hack and was
driven to a saloon near Naud's Junction,
on the line of the Southern Pacific.
While the party were there Soto spied
the Colton train coming. He at
once rushed into the ya'rd fol
lowed by his companions.
W'ten the train reached a point
within thirty feet of the party a pistol
was fired by one of them. The ball
entered the car widow and struck
Mrs. Trescovitch, a passenger, in the
left breast and glancing on the steel of
her corset, came out on the right sine,
making a flesh wound which is not
considered dangerous.
Later in the day, Soto was arrested
and charged with assault to murder. He
was considcably under the influence
of liquor, but denied that he fired the
Passengers on the train told the
officers that the man who fired the shot

Hausiiaw, Ariz., July 1. The lover
of beautiful mountain scenery and tho
picturesque in nature should visit Har
shaw. It lies in a gulch in the midst
of the Patagonia mountains, while from
the neighboring summits you can look
upon the Santa Rita's with "OldBaldy"
rearing its tall peak to the northwest.
Closer and to the north lie the Syca
more mountains, while over to
the east are the Huachuca, while still
beyond one can catch a sight of the
peaks of tho San Jose range and Bed
Rock peak near Bisbee, nearly fifty
miles away can be distinctly seen.
People of Arizona are so familiar with
the History of Harshaw that any sketch
of the rise and fall of the camp and its
rehabilitation, would le superfluous.
The Hernioso mine, which made the
camp what it was ten years ago, and
was subsequently deserted, is now owned
by James Finley, who is reaping good
returns from his investment. The ore
is a low grade silver, running from
twenty-three to twenty-six ounces to the
ton, but the vein is very wide, averag
ing from thirty-five to sixty inches.
More properly speaking, there are two
distinct veins in the mountain, one slop
ing thirty-two degrees to the north and
extending nearly east and west, and the
other running parallel to it, only a few
hundred feet distant. At several places
a cross ledge has been struck, and at
one opening of the mine, the rock has
been so full of ore that it has all been
taken out, the pit resembling a stone
quary more than a silver mine. Mr.
Finley is working the ore with a forty
two inch Huntington mill, but he has
lately purchased a new sixty inch mill
and as soon as that is put up will be
prepared to run from twenty to thirty
tons of ore a day. He has now about
1000 tons of ore on the dump, aud from
twenty-five to thirty men employed in
the mines. His entire property looks
very promising and he seems sure to
reap the reward which long and patient
work deserves.

Your correspondent found the camp
still considerably exercised over the
murder of Ben, the China boy, by Jack
Davis July 1. The fixing of his bail by
Judge Sloan at J2500 after theconunitting
Magistrate had held him without bail is
looked upon as a grave error, and some
fear that if Davis should secure bail he
wouuTfcause more trouble in the camp.
The murder is universally looked upon
as the most cold blooded evcrcommittcu
by a white man in Southern Arizona.
A well known and old time resident of
Harshaw in describing the murder said:
"Ben was a great favorite among all
the boys in tho camp. He spoke good
English and was as generous and warm
hearted a man as I ever saw. He ran
the restaurant down here and many's
the timo he has given a man board who
needed it. If any of the boys were hard
up they could board right along with
him, and pay when they got the money.
Besides he was not close like most
Chinamen, but would gi out with the
lys and was as free with his money as
any. There was a little dispute c
twecn Davis and Ben, the night before
the killing, over a game of cards, Davis
being under the influence ot liquorat the
time. The next day, however, they
met and made up and took a drink to
gether as a token of continued friend
ship. Along in tne evening alter

went together
but a few seconds
When found the
boy had a candle in his left hand and
was evidently just in the act of lighting
it when killed. The pistol, a big 44-cal-ibrc,
had loen placed right against his
left arm, and his shirt and arm were
badly powder-burned over a space of
several inches. Davis claimed that the
boy camo at him with a knife, but
everything shows that this was not so.
There was no knife about the boy when
others rushed in, nor none in the dining
room, where he lay. Besides Davis did
not want any supper, as he had just
come from eating a game dinner not
twenty minutes lefore the murder oc
curred. The whole thing shows that he
inveigled the boy inside to murder him
and as soon as he got him inside stuck
his revolver against his arm and fired.
" I was greatly surprised when I
learned that the District Judge had set
Davis' bail at $2500. I think he did not
fully understand the case, or he never
would have admitted him to bail at
A number of residents of the camp
were interviewed regarding the murder
and not one was seen but gave sub
stantially the same story as that given
above and all deplored the fixing of bail
for so grave an offense. Harshaw has
always been a very orderly camp. There
is now no Justice of the Peace here and
the people take great pride in having a
camp so orderly, jcaceful and quiet
that no law officers are needed. This
probably has some influence in making
them feci that Davis should receive the
full limit of the law for his cowardly
crime. E. S. G.
