By the Associated Press.
Washington, Aug. 15. It is stated
with positiveness by members of con
gress and others who stand closest to
the president that he will not veto the
tariff bill. A doubt remaining is
whether the bill will become a law by
the president's signature or go into ef
fect by the expiration of days without
his signature.
The bill was brought to the senate at
noon today by a clerk of the house, and
ten minutes later had received the sig
nature of Vice-President Stevenson. It
was taken to the White House at 1 :15.

Arson Is Rewarded at a Fixed
A Plan by Which Anarchists Pro
pose to Make a Distribu
tion of Capital.
By the Associated Press.
Chicago, Aug. 15. Carl Herlitz and
his wife were held over to the grand
jury today on charges of arson. Her
litz pleaded guilty to the charges, but
his wife denies her guilt. Inspector
Conway told a remarkable story in con
nection with the charge. He said that
he had indisputable evidence that an
organized gang of students of Herr
Moat's theories and methods has been
operating in Chicago and vicinity.
They have been carrying out their
theories by burning or blowing up
houses to secure insurance.
After the proceedings in court Her
litz made a full confession. He said he
came from New Orleans five years ago
and met a man named Scharf who in
structed him in anarchistic doctrines.
Scharf suggested the best way to secure
reversals tor capitalists was to get after
the insurance companies. Bombs and
other anarchistic paraperhanalia wete
adopted and operations commenced. It
is claimed that the compensation of
Herlitz lor each hre for which he was
responsible was $100.

Victoria, Aug. 15. Lieut. Gen. Ta-
kashima, who arrived on the steamer
Tacoma, today in comparing the
strength of China and Japan expressed
himself as follows : "Japan is inferior
in point of tonnage by some 3,000 tons,
but China has vessels with a epeed of
only 12 knots while Japan has vessels
of 18 knots. As to skill and arms,
China is no match for Japan. More
over Bhe has only thirty vessels of the
China merchants steam navigation com
pany aB transports which she requires
for the transportation of rice for the in
terior. But Japan has about sixty
steamers of over 2,000 tons for that
In Yokahoma it is believed that
China's plan will be to march troops
into Corea by the way of Wiju and the
Japanese government is said to be tak
ing steps accordingly. From Hong'
kong reports on the Corean difficulty
are wild and of a contradictory nature
The Hochi reports that intelligence is
said to have been received from Tokio
to the effect that the Chinese man-of-
war Koot Su, which fled to the Corean
coast after the engagement of July 25,
reached Gasan where her crew aban
doned herand landed, and a Japanese
man-of-war captnred her.
A collision occurred at Royson and
the Chinese sustained a loss of 180
killed and wounded.
Engineer Taylor Deceived by an In
accurate Gauge. ,
A. W. Taylor, engineer at the Phce
nix Light and Power company's power
house was seriously and, perhaps fatally
scalded by steam yesterday morning.
He opened the manhole of the boiler
when the steam issued in terrific force
and volume.
It is not unusual to remove the cap
from tne manhole when there is very
little steam, and the gauge at this time
indicated only ten pounds. In
this case the gauge had stopped
The engineer's left arm and entire
breast were fearfully scalded.
No Motive Assigned by the
The Dead Man's Wife and Sister
Leave for Prescott on Receipt
of News of His Death.
Nothing was learned yesterday of the
particulars of the suicide of J. A. May
at Prescott on Monday night, in addi
tion to the account contained in a dis'
patch to The Republican yesterday
His wife who lives near the corner of
Third avenue and Madison street, was
notified by a telegram yesterday morn
ing and she started Boon after with her
sister for Prescott. The body will be
buried there.
May left here about three weeks ago
for the purpose of engaging in his busi
ness as an auctioneer. He did not
know bow long be would be gone but
expected to be in Phoenix not later
than the first of September. The
neighbors are unable to assign a motive
for the suicide. Mav was of a parti
cularly jovial disposition and his do
mestic relations so far, as is known were
pleasant. It is said that he had lately
com plained of inability to meet his
bills. He injured his ankle several
weeks ago and before he had fully re
covered from his injury he shot his
finger. The last injury was protected
by an accident insurance policy but at
the time he left here he had not suc
ceeded in getting his indemnity.
The suicide came to Phoenix about
two years ago from Florida where he is
said to have Bome property. He served
on the Confederate side of the Rebellion
in a North Carolina regiment. During
his residence here he made many
The Election Was Quiet, But a Good
Vote Was Cast.
The Populist primaries yesterday
created hardly a ripple on the calm
surface of affairs. There was a slight
contest for choice of delegates, but it
was so quietly conducted that few were
aware of its existence. The ticket had
been ingeniously arranged in the inter
est ot one element. It contained thirtv
names, twenty, of which were to be
voted for. All the names objectionable
to the compilers of. the ticket were
placed at the bottom on the theorv that
the indifferent-voter would expedite
matters by cutting of the ten names at
