AT THE CAPITAL.
The Senate Takes a Whirl at the Pacific Roads. Tlie Lower House Adjourns After a Short Session. Silver Bills Remain in the Conference Incubator. An Agreement With Mexico Permitting Troops to Cross the Line While in Pursuit of Indians. Associated Press Dispatches. I Washington, July 3.— In the senate messages from the president as to postal and cable communication between the United States and the Latin American states, and as to tlie celebration of the fourth centennial of the discovery of America, were presented and referred. Allison moved that when the senate adjourned today it be till Monday. Agreed to. riumb offered a resolution (agreed to! 1 calling upon the secretary of war for information as to whether articles are being manufactured at any of the na tional military homes that come in com petition with private enterprises; and . if so, the reason and authority therefor. Plumb also offered a resolution direct ing the secretary of the interior to in form the senate whether he has knowl edge of the guarantee, actual or pro posed, by the Union Pacific Railroad Company, of bonds or stocks of any other corporation, more especially those of the Oregon Navigation Company and the Denver and South Park railroad; whether the Union Pacific has paid out of its surplus earnings or otherwise, the indebtedness, or any part thereof, of those or other companies; and if so, whether such guarantee or payment or both is in accordance with the law and consistent with the obligations of the Union Pacific. Edmunds suggested to add the words : "And that the secretary of the interior communicate all information in the possession of his department on the sub ject." Plumb accepted the amendment. Butler sarcastically suggested that the secretary oi the 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 supposed that the caucus had acted on the matter. This led to a tilt between Butler and Edmunds, which consumed some time. Edmunds said that as far as he was concerned he would be glad to have the resolution embrace the call to know whether the interior department is in possession of information that at least one of the government aided railroads has never since the passage of the Thurman act, delib erately discharged its injunctions in re spect of increasing of obligations and making dividends. If it be true that in spite of the law and penalties im posed, there has not been force enough in the administration, either un der Democratic or Republican auspices, to compel these companies to obey the law, he did not know what was the use of passing a settlement bill at all. Tlie resolution was finally agreed to. The subject of the bill passed yester day as to land patents retaining unde livered, and the facilities offered the firm of Washington ottorneys to make a list of them, was brought up by Berry, of Arkansas, who had a letter read sent by these attorneys to the clerk of Colum bia county, Arkansas, offering to supply patents in that county for $4 each, of which fee the clerk was to retain $1. A letter from Assistant Commissioner Stone (acting commissioner) to this firm, extending such facilities to it, and letter from Assistant Secretary Bussey, certifying to the reputable character of the firm, were also read. Berry said that if any explanation could be given of that transaction, or any excuse for this most scandalous conduct on the part of the government officers, he would be glad to hear it. There were 250,000 of these undelivered patents, and this firm would, at the low rate mentioned in its letter, wrench a million dollars from citizens unjustly and without au thority. He understood that one mem ber of the firm, Thos. H. McKee, was an officer of the house of representatives. The matter was discussed at some length by Teller, Haddock and Cockrell. Haddock stated that under the present administration the number of undeliv ered patents bad been reduced by some 70,000. The senate bill to establish a United States land court was then discussed un til 2o'clok p. in., when the postal and ship subsidy bills came up. Vest continued his argument against the bills. He was as anxious as Mr. Blame to bring back the supremacy of the United States on the ocean and to open the ports of South America to American products. The senator from Maine (Frye), wanted subsidies. He (Vest) opposed them in toto. Vest went on to speak of the late Pan-Amer ican congress, and sent to the clerk's desk and had read a clipping from the New York Herald, of Buenos Ayres cor respondence, to show what Sefior Pierra, who accompanied the Argentine dele gates to Washington, thought of the conference, of Blame and of the United States delegates. As soon as the clerk finished reading this caustic criticism, Hawley askec Vert whether he knew who wrote that whether it was quite fair and decorous to have printed such a mess of irrespon sible blackguardism. Vest replied that the gentleman's name was given in the communication. Hawley—l reaffirm what I said, that the man who speaks as he does of those honorable gentlemen, and who says ot American colleges that degrees can be obtained for $30, says wilfully that which is false. Vest—He is secretary ot a society in Buenos Avres, and accompanied the del egation from the Argentine republic to this Pan-American congress. Hawley—And you may add to that description that he is a liar and a black guard. . . Vest said: "The article is a criticism of a public assembly, and I had it read to show the impression made upon a prominent man who attended that con ferenee in respect to the personnel of the conference and its object. It was ii order to show that no wincing and din ing, no public exhibition nothing bu self-interest would effect our commereia relations with the people of South Amer ica. I have had that article, as a com munication, published all ove the country and in South Amer ica to show that the mci who came here from South America are TIIE LOS ANGELES IIERALD: FRIDAY MORNING, JULY 4, 1890. among the keenest, shrewdest and most far-seeing merchants of the world, and that when we, by an international American conference or by any other spectacular means, seek to draw them away from their self-interest we are simply fooling ourselves and throwing away the money of the public." Vest went on to say that if the subsidy sys tem is established it should be made equal. Cattle raisers should be subsi dized. If he wanted to emasculate and enervate the people he would teach them to depend upon the government. Wilson, of Maryland, addressed the senate in opposition to the bills, which went over. The conference report on the agricul tural appropriation bill was presented and agreed to. Adjourned till Monday. The House. Washington, July 3. —After a brief session, and without transacting any business of importance, the house ad journed till Monday. WASHINGTON BREVITIES. The Idaho Admission Bill Signed by the President. Washington, July 3. —The president signed the act for the admission of Idaho as a state at 10 o'clock this morning. The president lias approved the joint resolution extending the unexpended balance for letter-carriers for extra com pensation under the eight-hour law. The president left for Cape May this afternoon, after having been informed that the legislative appropriation bill would not be ready for his action until next week, the house having adjourned before it had been enrolled. He expects to return Tuesday. Blame left this afternoon for Bar Harbor. The senate committee on military af fairs ordered a favorable report upon the nomination of Lieutenant-Colonel Rich ard N. Batchelder to be quartennaster general of the United States army. Killed by a Cave-In. Nevada, Cal., July 3.—John Driscoll was killed yesterday morning by a cave-in in a tunnel of the Boston mine near Paniteville. The miners were four hours digging out the body. THE STATUS OF SILVER. THE CONGRESSIONAL CONFEREES EVOLVING A NEW BILL. No Definite Proposition Yet Advanced By Either Side—Gold For Customs Duties. Washington, July 3.—Another una vailing conference over the silver biM. was held this morning. One of the members says that the time was spent in a general discussion of the financial situation; that ho proposition was pre sented and pressed with any particular force. An adjournment was taken at noon until Saturday morning. It is said that previous to that time, probably this afternoon or evening, the Republi can members of the conference will hold a meeting with a view to agreeing upon some basis of action. Gne of the questions upon which the con ferees is divided is said to be whether only the certificates to be is sued in accordance with this bill shall be made legal tender, or all certificates outstanding previous to the approval oi the bill as well. Walker, one of the house conferees, is credited with having suggested that the bill requires customs duties to be paid in gold alone, but that was ruled out on the ground that its consideration would open discussion upon a matter not properly included within the scope oi the bill before the conference. Bli nd, of the house conferees, is quote 1 as saying that the only serious difference between the house and senate conferees relates to the bullion redemp tion clause. TROOPS MAY CROSS THE LINE. A Reciprocal Agreement Arrived at With Mexico. Washington, July 3.—An agreement has been entered into by Blame and Romero, the Mexican minister, provid ing for reciprocal crossing of the inter national boundary line by troops of the United States and Mexico when in close pursuit of hostile Indians. Under this agreement it is provided that no Indian scouts of the United States shall be al lowed to cross the boundary unless they go as guides and trailers unarmed, and not exceeding in any case two scouts for each company or each separate com mand. The reciprocal crossing agreed upon shall only occur in unpopulated or desert parts of said boundary line. For the purpose of this agreement the un populated or desert parts are defined to be all points at least ten kilometers dis tance from any encampment or town of cither country. No crossing of troops of either country shall take place from Capitan, a little town on the Mexican side of the Rio Bravo, lifty-two English miles above Piedras Negras, to the mouth of the Rio Grande. The commander of troops which cross the frontier in pursuit of Indians shall at the time of crossing, or before if pos sible, give notice oi his march to the nearest military commander or civil authority of the country whose territory he enters. The pursuing force shall retire to its own territory as soon as it shall have fought the band of which it is in pursuit, or lost the trail. In no case shall the forces of two coun tries, respectively, establish themselves or remain in foreign territory for any time longer than is necessary to make the pursuit of the band wdiose trail they fol low. Abuses which may be committed by the forces which cross into the territory of the other nation shall be punished by the government to which the forces be long, according to the gravity of the offence, and in conformity with its laws, as if the abuses had been committed in its own territory, said govern ment being further under obliga tion to withdraw the guilty parties from the frontier. In case of offences which may be committed by the inhab itants of one country against the foreign forces which may be within its limits, the government'of said country shall only be responsible to the government of the other for the denial of justice in the punishment of the guilty.

Captain Thurman Sinks With tlie Napa City. He Was About to Take Com mand of a New Schooner. The Cook Drowned After Floating" All Night on Wreckage. Two Seamen Saved By Clinging to the Upturned Vessel—The Schooner Guide Runs Aground, Associated Press Dispatches. I San Francisco, July 3. —The schooner Ester Cabos arrived in port this morn ing from Bowen's landing, with a cargo of posts for R. M. Gifford. The schooner brought Robert Tomaritta, mate, and Oscar, a seaman, who were rescued from a watery grave by picking them up oil' the bottom of the schopjjer Napa City, which was wrecked last night, seven miles to the northwest of Point Reyes. Captain Thurman and the cook of the vessel were drowned. The mate says: "The Napa City left Point Arena yesterday morning for this city, with a cargo of posts and bark con signed to C. L. Dingley. Last evening, when about seven miles to the northwest of Point Reyes, I suddenly observed that she was sinking fast, and almost in a flash she careened and turned com pletely over. There were four men on the vessel—Captain Thurman, Mate Robert Tomaritta, William Newman, cook, and a seaman named Oscar. The captain and cook were thrown into the sea, but the mate and the other sailor managed to cling to the vessel. The cook got on to a piece of floating bark. Captain Thurman had on big rubber boots and heavy clothing. He made an attempt to reach the capsized vessel, but sank before our eyes. We were powerless to assist him. At day light we made out the Ester Cabos head ing toward us, and finally we were picked up. AYe made an attempt to reach poor Newman, the cook, but he could hold on no longer and drowned be fore the boat could reach him." Captain Thurman was well-known on the coast as a good seaman. He had been on the Napa City for four years, and this was to have been his last trip, as he had been assigned to the com mand of a new schooner. He leaves a wife and four children. The Napa City was owned by Howard Jarvis and the cargo by C. L. Dingley. Neither vessel nor cargo was insured. A LUMBER SCHOONER WRECKED. The Guide Runs on the Rocks Near Port Angeles.

The tide was running very swift and the chain began butting her hull down, but before much damage was done the chain parted and the schooner drifted on"a rock, where she was sighted by the tug Mogul yes terday, who rendered her assistance and towed the vessel off. Considerable damage was done to the vessel. She was towed to Port Blakely, and the deck load will have to be discharged in order to repair the vessel. ALASKAN MATTERS.

On the return of the small boat to the vessel a heavy sea capsized it, and two of the occupants were drowned. Their names could not be ascertained.

Smoote, a highly cultivated and estimable lady of Prescott, Ark., writes underdateof April 22,89: "During the sum mer of 1887 my eyes became inflamed, and my stomach and liver hopelessly disordered. Nothing I ate agreed with me. I took chron ic diarrhoea, and for some time my life was despaired of by my family. The leading phy sicians of the country were consulted, but the medicines administered by them never did me any permanent good, and I lingered between life and death, the latter being pre ferable to t^r r igonies I was enduring.
