THAT BROKEN LOCK
At Sault Ste. Marie Worries
The Secretary of War Asked
A Calamity that is Costing the Nation
$500,000 a Day.
Vest's Amendment to the Chinaware
Clause of the Tariff Bill Rejected.
Correspondence of the Associated Press.
Washington, August 4. —In the sen
ate today Davis offered a resolution call
ing on the secretary of war for informa
tion on the subject of the accident last
Friday to the lock of the Sault Ste. Marie
canal. He spoke of it as a most serious
calamity to the commerce of the nation,
costing (as he had been informed by
telegraph), $500,000 a day. He also
mentioned, incidentally, the failure of
the house to act on the bill passed by
the senate some months ago, providing
for a second and larger lock.
Cullom hoped the house would be
induced to take up that measure and
pass it. If not it would be well enough
for the senate to take up the river and
harbor bill at an earlier day than had
been agreed upon, so as to have an ap
propriation secured for that very impor
Cockrell inquired whether the "busi
ness branch of Congress" had paid no at
tention to the bill referred to.
Cullom said it had not.
Cockrell—That is very remarkable.
That body was organized with one man
for the purpose of transacting business,
and now it will not do it.
Payne said he did not know how deli
cate one had to be in talking about the
other house, but he was informed that
the bill had been approved by the river
and harbor committee of the house, but
that for several months past the commit
tee had not been able to get a hearing for
it before the house. There was
where the matter stood. Whether
it would be an act of humiliation for the
senate to ask the other bouse respect
fully to act on that bill, he would not
undertake to judge, but something
ought to be done.
Edmunds did not think it the proper
thing to spend time in discussing the
conduct of the other branch of congress.
All that the senate had to do with it
just now was to consider the accident to
the canal lock, and he thought that, as
the appropriations made in the river
and harbor bill of years ago were still in
force, the engineer department? had
money enough at its disposal to remedy
the defect. If so, there was no benefit
in the senate making this very extraor
dinary display of itself on the subject.
Payne said the damage was being re
paired as fast as 500 men could do it,
and would be completed tomorrow or
next day, but the main object of this
appeal to congress was that provision
should be made ior an additional loan.
After further discussion the resolution
was agreed to.
The resolution offered Saturday by
Plumb as to the re-interment of the re
mains of Grant in the Arlington na
tional cemetery, was at the suggestion
of Plumb allowed to remain on the
table, to be called up at some other
The tariff bill was then taken up, be
ing on Vest's amendment to tbe china
ware paragraph, for the reduction of the
duty on decorated china to 50 per cent,
ad valorem, and on plain undecorated
ware to 40 per cent., instead of 55 and
50, as recommended by the finance com
mittee, instead ot 00 and 55 in the house
bill. The matter was discussed at length.
Finally Vest modified his amendment
by changing the rate of plain white china
to 45, instead of 40 per cent. The
amendment was then rejected—yeas, 19;
The amendment of the finance com
mittee making the rates of 55 and 50
per cent, was agreed to without
The next question was on the com
mittee amendment to paragraph 101, as
to "all other china, etc.,"
out the house paragraph which fixes
the rate on decorated ware at GO per
cent, and on undecorated ware at 55 per
cent., and substituting another designa
tion on which the rate of 50 per cent, is
fixed. Agreed to.
The next question was on paragraph
102>a, glass and glassware. Tlie com
mittee amendment was to strike out the
paragraph in the house bill fixing four
rates on bottles according to sizes, and
to substitute for it a different classifica
tion on, with two rates —one cent per
pound on bottles not less than a pint
and on demijohns and carboys, and 1%
cents a pound on bottles holding less
than a pint. Agreed to.
The next question was on the amend
ment of the finance committee to strike
out paragraphs 109, 110, 111, 112, 113
and 114 of the house bill, and substi
tute for them a new paragraph (104),
taxing glass and glassware, cut or orna
mented, at 45 per cent, ad valorem.
McPherson moved to reduce the rate
in the senate amendment to 35 per cent.
Plumb moved to amend the commit
tee amendment by reducing the rate on
cut and decorated; glass and glassware
from 45 to 40 per cent. Rejected.
The committee amendment was then
The next question was on paragraph
106, fixing the duties on unpolished
cylinder, crown and common glass, the
committee amendment being to reduce
from 11-2 cents. A long discussion en
sued. HPlumb said it was better not to
pass a tariff bill than to pass one that
was not right.
Vance's amendment was finally de
Various motions to reduce the rates
on unpolished cylinder, crown and com
mon window glass were made by Plumb,
and were rejected on yeas and nays
votes, although in the last of them, In
galls, Manderson, Paddock and Plumb
voted with the Democrats.
Finally, on motion of Aldrich, the
rates were reduced to 114, 1%, 2)4 and
2% cents per pound, according to sizes,
and the senate adjourned.

An Alleged Cable Car Victim's More
San Fbancisco, August 4.—James
Clark, a carpenter, yesterday informed
Chief of Police Ciowley that Thomas
McDonald, who was found dead on How
ard street October 25, 1888, had been
murdered. The police thought at the
time that McDonald had been struck by
a cable car, hut Clark said McDonald
was murdered in a saloon kept by Mrs.
Ritchie, at Gil Howard street. McDon
ald quarreled in the saloon about
drinks, and was struck by a Sacramento
river steamboat man named Wallace
Savage. Savage knocked McDonald
through the door, and he struck his
head heavily on the sidewalk. McDon
ald lay where he fell, and after a while
Savage carried him across the street and
sat him on the doorway of the Cali
fornia Athletic Club, where he was
found dead next morning. Clark says a
person (presumed to be his wife) who
was in tlie saloon at the time told him
the facts above related. The police are
looking for Savage.

The Wealthy Can Practice Economy.
It's all very well to talk about economy
and the duty of being economical, but
the truth is, and the mischief of it is,
tbat the very persons who are poor
enough to need to practice it are the
very ones who can't. It takes a person
of some means to practice economy.
Let us see. There is that beautiful little
maxim about the best always being
the cheapest. It is, too. But it takes
money to buy that best-cheapest
to begin with, you see. The successful
practice of economy demands a financial
consideration of things in that "long
run" that somehow is supposed to offer
such marvelous advantages to him who
runs well and manfully. But the
trouble is that the equipment of the
very ones who ought to enter for the
benefits of the "long run" is not suffi
cient to admit them, for it takes capital
to enter. To illustrate: You know per
fectly well that a $40 suit of
clothes would be cheaper at the last
than a $25 suit. Your theory of eco
nomics is perfectly sound. And your
theory of the superior comfort and ad
vantage to be got out of the $40 suit is
just as sound. But—you have only $25
to squander on that suit of clothes." The
economy of the $40 suit would be de
lightful, but you can't afford it, you see.
So with housekeeping, as every wo
man who knows anything about It will
tell you. It is cheapest to
buy only the best of everything,
and to buy in large quantities instead of
small ones. Yes, surely. But the dol
lars of most persons come to them in
small quantities instead of large ones.
Hence these tears —and these petty ex
travagances. Frankly, we are extrava
gant, are we not, my friend, you and I ?
We cannot afford to be economical, can
we?—[New York Sun.
Good Sense in Diplomacy.
The revelations of the New York.
World concerning the Bering sea nego

matter has reached an acute stage, and
that good temper and good judgment
are now more needed than jingoism and
bluster. The interests of the United
States cannot be advanced by empty
boasting, and now that the jingo posi
tions appear to have been abandoned
the troublesome question can be settled
without impairing the good feeling of
either Great Britain or America.—[tst.

Associated Press Dispatches. I
Denver, August 4. —A chemical explo
sion occurred in the office of the Denver
rire brick and chemical supply house at
1 o'clock this afternoon. The entire
front of the building was blown out, and
men passing in front of the building at
the time were hurled across the street
and badly bruised. The building took
fire instantly, and when partially extin
guished a body, burned to a crisp, and
supposed to be that of the president of
the company, Joseph Bosworth, was taken
out of the ruins. It is thought another
is still in the building.
Latch.—The body taken from the
ruins has been identified as J. O. Bos
worth. No others were killed, though
several had narrow escapes from being
caught in the flames. Mr. Bosworth
was working in the center of the room,
making flash light, and the explosion of
the chemicals he was using must have
caused his instant death, as one arm
was blown off and his skull horribly
crushed. The loss on the building and
stock is $20,000.
THE WORLD'S MEDICOS.
Opening of the International Medical
Congress at Berlin.
Berlin, August 4. The tenth inter

city today. Herr Yon Coltticher, chief
of the imperial home office and repre
sentative of the chancellor, Herr Yon
Maltzan, imperial treasurer VonGossler,
Prussian minister of ecclesiastical af
fairs, instruction and medical affairs,
and Herr Herrfurth, Prussian minister
of the interior, represented the German
government at the opening ceremonies.
Prof. Virchow, president of the congress,
made the opening address. He ex
pressed the emperor's sympathy with
the objects of the congress, and said
Germany would devote herself to sci
ence and humane efforts. Two thous
and five hundred German and two
thousand five hundred foreign doctors,
including five hundred physicans from
America were present. Yon Boetticher
made an address welcoming the dele
gates on behalf of the German states,
and Dr. Yon Gossler welcomed them on
behalf of the educational department.
An address welcoming the delegates to
Berlin, was made by the burgomaster of
the city. Dr. Hamilton, surgeon
general of the United States marine
hospital service, who was secretary of
the congress held last year at Washing
ton, and others, made speeches in re
sponse to the address of welcome.
After the reading of several papers
Prof. Verchow, president of the con
gress, announced the arrangement of
the sections and invited all the mem
bers to a fete this evening in Austel
lung's park. Sir James Paget was
elected honorary president.
THE KOVING KAISER.
He Visits His Illustrious Grandmother
at Osborne House.
London, August 4.—The German im
perial yacht, with Emperor William
and his brother, Prince Henry, onboard,
arrived at Osborne at 10 this morning.
The queen signalled "welcome" to his
majesty from Osborne house, her palace
on the Isle of Wight, as the yacht
entered Cowles roads. The prince of
Wales and duke of Connaught, on
board the royal yacht, went out to meet
the emperor. A number of others of the
royal family awaited the arrival on the
private landing stage. One German
ironclad accompanied the emperor. He
was also escorted into the harbor by five
British torpedo boats. As the emperor
landed, a salute was fired. Entering a
carriage, his majesty drove to Osborne
house, where the queen, the Prin
cess of Wales and the Duchess of
Edinburgh received him at the entrance.
As he entered, the band played the Ger
man and English national anthems. The
emperor wore a British admiral's uni
Death of Elizabeth Sands—The Last of
the Old Defenders.
Baltimore, August 4.—Mrs. Elizabeth
Sands, probably the oldest person in
Baltimore, and the last of the Old De
fenders' Association, died yesterday, 101
years of age. Mrs. Sands was" born
March 7, 1789. In 1805 she married
Peter Smyck, a jeweler, who joined the
army to repel the British invaders in
1812. While in Annapolis he con
tracted a fever, and his wife, with their
four children, went down to nurse him.
She remained in camp, enduring all the
privations of a soldier and ministering
to the wants of all the sick.
Her husband never recovered, but
even after his death she continued with
the army as a nurse. She outlived all
her children, the last one dying six
months ago, at the age of 77. She will
be buried with military honors.

Nothing I ate agreed with me. I took chron
