All Old American Flags li* Now Out of Date. Wyoming Will Wait a Few Days Before Coming In. Tho Presidont's Reasons For Signing the Idaho Bill Yesterday—Flags Float Over the Capitol. Associated Press Dispatches. I Washington, July B.—Senate amend ment to the Wyoming admission hill would have been concurred in to-day by the House had a quorum been present. The point of no quorum was made, and Cannon of Illinois appealed to the House to permit the adoption «i,the conference report on the District oi Co lumbia appropriation bill, and concur rence in the amendment to the Wyo ming bill without the point of no quo rum being raised, saying that he would move to adjourn immediately thereafter. The House, however, adjourned without action. The Wyoming bill was enrolled ready for signatures. The reason for the President's action in signing the Idaho bill to-day was an interesting one. The President, it seems, found that the law ordained that a new star should be placed upon the American flag for each new state on the fourth of July succeeding its admisssion to the Union. The President left it to Dubois, Delgate from Idaho, to decide whether to have the bill signed at once and get a star, or leave the star over until July 4, 181)1, Dubois chose the star now, and as a result the bill was signed and forty-three stars are due upon the flag tomorrow. . It was believed that had the house adopted the amendment to the Wyoming bill today the president would have ap proved the act before leaving the city. Delegate Carey said this evening that the amendment concerning Yellowstone park had already delayed the admission of Wyoming several days, but the park was the wonderland of the world, and would be 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 days for the realization of their great ambition. The Idali*' admission bill declares the present territory of Idaho a state, and ratifies the constitution framed by the convention of July 4, 1889, and adopted at the election in the following Novem ber. The state is declared entitled to one representative in congress until after the census. The usual grants of sections Hi and ill! of the public lands in each township for the support of com mon schools, thirty sections for public buildings ami 5 per cent of the proceeds of sales oi public lands to constitute a permanent school fund were made, and the state confirmed the title to seventy two sections of land granted the terri tory for a university and the land on which the penitentiary at Boise City is situated. For the support of an agri cultural college 90,000 acres of land is granted; 100,000 acres for a scientific school; 100,000 acres for state normal schools; 50,000 acres for an insane asylum at Black Foot, 50,000 for a state university at Moscow, 50,000 for the Boise City penitentiary and 150,000 acres for other state charitable, educational and re formatory institutions, none of tlie lands to be sold for less thnn .$lO per acre. All mineral lands are excepted from the grants made. An appropriation of $25, --•000 is made to defray the expenses of the constitutional convention. The state is made a judicial district to be attached to the ninth circuit, court to be held at the capital. The usual court officers will be . appointed and proper provisions made for the transfer of such. The state constitution which is ratified by the act con tains a special provision prohibiting polygamy and declaring no person en titled to a vote, to hold office or serve as a juror who is a bigamist or polygamist, or who practices or encourages plural marriages or is a member of or counte nances any organization which teaches such doctrines. The state has a Mor mon oath which is required of voters, and it was not until the supreme court upheld its constitutionality that the bill was considered by the senate territories committee. In the house the democrats refrained from voting, and asserted the intention to make a test on this bill of tlie speaker's right to count a quorum. A BIG DEAL.

BRUTAL SLUGGERS. A Prize Eight at Chicago Which May Result Fatally. Chicago, July 8. —Jack Ashton was to have met Frank (Hover at Battery D tonight in a hard-glove contest, and 2,000 people assembled to witness the encounter. The police prevented the men from sparring, however, owing to the fact that in one of the preliminary lights Mike Brennan, of Boston, was so seriously injured that he will probably die. Brennan was contesting with Frank Garrard, of Chicago, nominally for points, but it is asserted since by those present that the fight was to be for blood. Brennan is the man who recently worsted Tommy White, of Chicago, in a long drawn-out battle. The match between Brennan and < iar ard was a fierce one, but after the second round Brennan had decidedly the worst of it. In the third and fourth he was repeatedly knocked down, and in the fifth, after arising two or three times, both men being very groggy, Garrard pushed against him and both men went to the floor, Brennan underneath. His head struck the hard boards with a re sounding crack, and when Garrard arose Brennan was found to be unconscious. Physicians were summoned, but up to a late hour tonight consciousness had not returned, and the doctors think he will die, having undoubtedly suffered a con tusion of tlie brain. Garrard, Referee Gallagher and Sec onds Mclnemy and Carroll have been arrested. A New Masonic Temiilc.

Dyer was seized by Deputy Fort Collector Evans when she put into Ounalaska in distress. Her crew was discharged and her compass and arms taken. The Dyer is an American sealing vessel, hailing from Portland, Maine. She had seventy seven sealskins. An insane cook on the Dyer attempted to kill all on board by placing poison in the food. Jle was given in charge of the physician on the Albatross." When otf Kodiak island three men were lost from the Dyer. They left the Dyer in a small boat to hunt seals, and a rough sea and heavy fog coming up it is supposed they lost their bearings and were drowned. A day's search failed to discover any trace of them. The three missing men are Harvey Kraft, a hunter, J. A. Keggans and' J. Newall, seamen. The schooner Pearl, chartered by the North American Commercial Company, returned to Ounalaska from the cruise to Bering sea with news that several of the crew had been drowned.

It is still smoking and once in a while great shoots of flame burst forth from the crater. The flow nkf lava lias stopped, however. The two new islands are nearly as large as the lirst one pushed to the surface by the volcano.

He Suicides Because of Adverse Criti cism by His President. Tacoma, July 3. —R. H. Passmore, aged 38, son-in-law of I*. B. Mann, a grain merchant of Minneapolis, suicided this morning, cutting his throat with a | jack knife, and died three hours later, j Passmore and two daughters have been eaat for several months, and the former i is supposed to be with her mother. Pass- I more received a letter yesterday saying | that his wife could not return until j August. He was for seventeen years | cashier of the First National Bank of Milwaukee, l'assmore came to Tacoma I a year ago and assumed charge j of the Security Bank as cashier, i Rumor has it and it is generally be lieved that President Hayward of the bank, on returning a couple of weeks age from an extended trip east, criti cized realty investments made by Pass more, which failed to appreciate. Pass more, it is said, lost on the investments personally, some say $8,000. Hayward told friends that he did not criticise Vassmore'a action save in a kindly man ner. However that, and the fact that his wife did not return it is thought, caused him to grow despondent. Yes terday he was about the bank as usual, and a couple of days ago took dinner with Hayward. As far as can be learned his accounts with the bank were all right. He was a vestryman at Trinity Episcopal church, and moved in the best society. His furnished house was vacated July Ist by the tenant, Passmore expecting his family to return Tuesday. He asked, the tenant to remain, saying his family would not return till September. The tenant could not remain, having mad'j other arrangements. l'assmore haa been boarding with friends since his wife's departure east. He suicided with a pearl-handled, two inch blade pocket-knife, which was found on the bed. He had stabbed himseif three times through the heart, and then cut his throat. The blood soaked through the mattress, carpet and floor, and was about to drip from the ceiling below, showing that he had committed the deed before midnight Wednesday. There was a faint heart flutter when he was found at 8 a. in. today. The remains will be shipped to Milwaukee tomorrow. A DREDGER BCRN'E2>. A Chinaman Roasted Alive Before lie Could he Rescued.

Desperate Cloak-Makers Cause a Riot in New York. Several Shops on Broadway Attacked and Wrecked. Homeless Families Walk the Streets Without Shelter. Many Heads Broken by the Exasperated Strikers—One Man Seriously Injured. Associated Press Dispatches ! New York, July 3.—lt lias been feared for some time that starvation would force the striking eloakmakers to do acts of violence. These fears were realized today. It has been a matter of common notoriety for several days past that these unfortunate people have actually been in awful straits, and a few have been confronted with the necessity of leaving their homes for lack of money to pay rent. Last night several families were out on the streets all night and the men this morning were driven to tlie point of desperation, and about two hundred of them went over to their old workshops. They massed in front of Meyer, Jonas son & Co.'s place and the Mercantile Cloth Company, two of the largest firms in the city. Joseph Lereburger, a buyer in the employ of Meyer Jonasson, came down the street. When the strikers saw him they made a rush at him, and Lereburger was badly beaten up before he managed to escape from the mob. The success of the attack upon the first victim seemed to turn the usually peaceful men into a body of rioters. They ran down to Jonasson's store, and the front doors being open, a few of the bolder ones entered and seized the office boy, Charlie Butler, and in a second he was receiving the same kind of blows which fell upon Lereberger. ' Wil liam Winer. an operator, Joseph Rodelhcimer, a packer, and Bookkeeper Sims were the next to receive similar treatment to that accorded tlie other two. Two Italians were then attacked, but they drew weapons and the strikers fled. The mob next gathered around a cloakmaker named Kunze. He did not get away so easily as the other men. When the police, who had been noti fied, came running down the street, the strikers scattered, but they left Kunze on the sidewalk bleeding from half a dozen cuts in his head. They must have kicked him, as his injuries were serious. All this time another detachment of strikers had been busy two blocks be low. They were men who had been in the employ of the Merchantile Cloth Company, and they gathered there just as in front of Meyer Jonasson & Co.'s and waited for the" workmen to come along. They were rewarded just before 3 o'clock, when they surrounded the men, struck them badly half a dozen times and then chased them up the stairs. The mob was then scattered by the police. While all this was going on an angry mob of striking eloakmakers collected at the corner oi Irvington and Eldridge streets, determined to obtain work or prevent the bosses from employing non union workers. Samuel Villet, a Pole, had about a score of men making cloaks for him. He did not like the looks of the strikers, and accordingly he locked and barred his doors. About 11:30 o'clock, when the crowd was the largest, Villet and his employees were startled by a crash. The strikers had broken open the front door, and a mob of about thirty, led by Abraham Rosenberg, rushed in upon them. They demanded that all hands stop work, and meeting with no success began to threaten and in timidate Villet and workmen. The strikers threw out of the windows the plush cloaks being made, and pande monium reigned. The streets in that vicinity were filled with a surging mass of people. Villet, becoming terrorized, and after receiving an ugly gash across the right eye with a knife, he whipped out a revolver and fired two shots. One bullet lodged in the back of Abraham Rosenberg, and with a shriek he stag gered out on the street. At this moment the police arrived. They cap tured Villet and eighteen other persons, and carried them otf to jail. Rosenberg was removed to the hospital, where he lies in a precarious condition. Tonight two hundred Jews on the east side mobbed a driver of a loaded cloak manu facturer's truck, on which also rode a policeman. The latter caught the leader and let his club fall on his head so often that he coliapsed, and the crowd slunk away. The Boilermakers' Convention. New York, July 3.—The American Boilermakers' Association today decided to organize local boards in various cities to have control of local matters. The next meeting will be held in St. Louis. President Curran delivered an address in which he denounced as untrue the statement that the brotherhood was ar rayed against the manufacturers. Ite ferring to the report that the manu facturers were to have a black list against organized labor, he was opposed to such a step, and said that the man who lirst adopted it would be sure to go under. Several of the manufacturers in reply said that no such thing as a black list had been thought of. At the even ing session the apprenticeship report went over to.the next meeting. An in surance scheme is to be formulated by a committee. Adjourned. A Bold Sneak-Thief Captured.
