lieimblican Senators Decide on a Programme. The Tariff Bill to Be Voted on About September sth. The Election Bill Not to Come up Again Till December. The River and Harbor Bill Under Con sideration in The House—The Raum Investigation. Associated Press Dispatches. Washington, August 22. —A commit tee of Republican senators has decided that the tariff bill, after a date to be fixed, is to be considered under the five minute rule a vote is taken. The date of this has not been decided, and will be subject to an arrangement with the Democrats. It is expected that a vote will be reached about the sth of September, then the other measures named iiT Senator Quay's resolution are to be taken up. The election bid will come up the first thing after the assem blage of congress in December. The plan by which the Republicans expect to secure the passage of the elsc tion bill next session, is to obtain a written pledge of the majority of sen ators to be in attendance early in De cember, and vote in favor of a change of rules, so as to permit the majority to fix the time for taking a vote upon any measure under consideration. This pledge, it is said, will be signed by all the members of the majority. It is not asserted, however, that the senators will be a unit in favor of the election bill. SENATE PROCEEDINGS. Several More Paragraphs of the Tariff Bill Disposed of. Washington, August 22. —The senate today adopted a resolution directing the secretary of the navy to investigate the alleged defects in the castings furnished by the Standard SteelHtompany, of Tliurlow, Pennsylvania, for the navy department. The tariff bill was then taken up and discussed at length. The house bill to amend act of June 2, 1874, for the relief of settlers of rail road lands, was taken from the calendar and passed. The tariff bill was then again taken up. As one paragraph after another was taken up, amendments were offered, principally by McPherson, but they were all rejected. The paragraph relating to shot-guns was passed over informally, Aldrich stating that the finance com mittee had some modifications of it under consideration. The paragraph relating to wood screws having been reached, Carlisle said that was an article which American manu facturers were selling abroad very much lower than they were selling at home. He produced a price list in support of this statement. This was another il lustration, he said, of thj policy adopted by the other side in allowing draw backs on exported articles. Ste wart said that the assumption that there was anything wrong in the sale of American manufactured goods in forgein countries cheaper than at home, arose from the want of information. No amendments were agreed to until paragraph 100 was reached, which on motion of Aldrich was amended so as to read: "Bullion of gold, silver or other metal, not specially provided for, 25 per cent ad valorem." Having reached the paragraph as to lead ore, the senate adjourned. IN THE HOUSE. The River and Harbor Rill and 1 Other Mutters Considered' Washington, August. 22—-Henderson, of Illinois, submitted to the house today the report of the commission on the senate amendments to the river and harbor bill, recommending non-con cur rence in those amendments and agreeing to the conference asked by the senate. Kerr raised the point of order that the amendment must first be considered in the committee of the whole. This point was sustained by the speaker. The house then resolved itself into com mittee of the whole for consideration of the measure. Henderson said the senate amend ments increased the appropriation car ried by the bill about $5,000,000. It was tins increase which the committee asked the house to non-concur in. After concurring in about one-half of the sen ate amendments, the committee rose. Mason, of Illinois, rising to a question of privilege, said some days ago a reso lution had been adopted, alleging that certain gentlemen had been fraudu lently using the mails to create senti ment in favor of the Conger land bill, and calling on the postoffice department for information on the subject. The resolution had been sent to the post office department with the request that the papers in regard to the matter be transmitted promptly. This had not been done. He had called at the department several times, and had been informed that probably the papers would not be sent up until Saturday night. Then they would be of no use, as the previous question on the bill was ordered at four o'clock tomor row. His charge was that improper influence had been brought to bear upon the department by the government, to retain certain papers in its possession. He moved that a committee of three members be appoint ed to wait on the postmaster general and ask that the papers be furnished in time to be used in the debate. Before any action was taken, the house took a recess, the evening session to be for consideration of private pension bills. COMMISSIONER RAUM. More Unwilling Testimony Wrung From the Pension Manipulator. Washington, August .22. — Com missioner Raum continued bis testimony before the investigating committee to day, lie said that some of the money he obtained from Lemon, went into the refrigerator company, but declined to state how much. Cooper presented an article published in the Cinciunati Commercial-Gazette, June 9th, containing a denial of the truth of the charges brought by Cooper. The commissioner denied that the article had been prepared in his office and taken to General Boyn ton He had had a number of inter views about that time with newspaper THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: SATURDAY CORNING, AUGUST 23, 1890. men on the subject. The interview was, he said, substantially correct. The commissioner said that probably Lemon bad spoken to him about advanced cases before he submitted his letter. Certainly other attorneys had done so. As to the system of completed files, witness said that the penseion office relied solely upon the certificate of the attorney (who was assumed to be a creditable person, being accredited by the court) that a case was complete and ready for action. The commissioner produced a statement of the cases on the completed files showing that there were now 115,5(14 of such cases, including,B,llo of Lemon's cases. The pension firm which had pre sented the largest number of completed cases this month, was Marriny & Co., Cooper's friends. This concluded the commissioner's examination, and Martin IJailey, chief of the law division of the pension bureau, was called and gave testimony relative to the office practice, adding that no particular consideration had ever been shown in the treatment of Lemon's cases, as he knew absolutely. Commissioner Raum next produced the stockbook of the refrigerator com pany andjfurnishedja list of stockholders, which was verified by the committee. He testified that it contained the name of no employee in the pension office, except his own, and that no stock was ever offered to any employee. Cooper declared that the proceeding was ex parte, that it was beneath the dignity of a member of congress or respectable attorney to participate in such an investigation. He had not been permitted to look at the stock-book. The committee offered to allow him to inspect the verified list, but he refused to do so unless he could obtain access to the books themselves. Adjourned to September Ist. ALIEN LAKOK LAW. The House Committee Presents its New Contract Labor Bill. Washington, August 22. —The amend ed alien contract law bill was presented in the house today from the committee on labor. Its principal features are: It is made unlawful on the part of an alien to enter the United States under contract to perform labor or service. If the master of a vessel shall bring any such alien into the United States, he shall, beside being subject to a fine and imprisonment, be required to return the alien to the port of embarka tion. It shall not be lawful for any person or corporation to encourage any alien laborer, mechanic or artisan to emigrate from any foreign country to the United States by promise of employ ment through an advertisement or otherwise. The provisions of the act shall not apply to professional actors, artists, lecturers, regularly ordained ministers of the gospel, learned profes sors for colleges-and seminaries or, pro fessional singers. A Sweeping Anti-Lottery Bill. Washington, August 22. —Ilans- brough, of North Dakota, has introduced in the bouse a joint resolution proposing an amendment to the constitution, pro viding that neither the United States nor any state shall pass a law autbor izing the establishment or maintenance of a lottery or any scheme for the dis tribution of prizes by chance. RUNAWAY TRAINS. A Frightful Railway Disaster at Cascade, Caused by Leaking Air Brakes, Emigrant Gap, Cal., August 22 —A serious freight wreck occurred at Cas cade early this morning. Train No. 19 was standing at Summit with the air brakes set, while the engines went after more cars. The air leaked, and the hand brakes not being set up, the caboose and several cars started down the grade. When the run away train reached Cascade, freight No. 23 was pulling in on the side track, all but the caboose and one car clearing the main track. The runaway struck, and a wreck resulted. Conduc tor Kingsley of No. 10, and conductor Connelly and brakemen Beaver and Lewis of 23, were killed, and it is under stood one or two others were badly hurt. Cascade station, a small structure, was thrown down a precipitous hill, but the operator, asleep in the house, escaped. The snowsbeds were demolished for some distance. Seventeen cars of No. 19, and two of the other train, were piled up in a mass, and the wires prostrated. The Atlantic express which left San Francisco yesterday is lying at Cisco, and the overland flyer which left last night, is here. Wreck ing trains are clearing away the debris. The fact that the Atlantic express was behind time last night, averted a fright ful disaster, as train 23 was running on her time to Summit. A Runaway in Colorado. DiCNAEB, August 22. —Three men were killed and three seriously injured by the running wild of a stone train of seven cars in the vicinity of Lyons, Colorado, this morning. The train was on a down grade, and witiiout apparent reason, the engineer found he hauflost control of the engine, whereupon the whole train started on a wild run down the mountain side. When Engineer Norton found he could not control the engine, be jumped and was killed. The fireman then climb ed back over the tender and attempted to uncouple the engine, but was un successful, and sustained serious in juries in jumping from the train. Both tlie brakemen jumped, one being almost instantly killed, and the other received injuries from which it is thought it is impossible for him to recover. The train continued on its wild career until the dump was reached, when all the cars went over and piled up in a promiscuous mass of ruins. The names of the killed are: E. Norton, engineer; Ferguson, car repairer; W. Gurkin, car repairer. The injured are: James Consodine, conductor; J. B. Strayer, brakeman; James Miller, fireman. A ST. 10EI9 PHYSICIAN. He Tests • California Production.— Hl* Report. A St. Louis gentleman whose affliction was sick headaches was so surprised at the cure effected by Joy's Vegetable Sarsaparilla, that he called it to the attention of a relative, who hap pened to be none other than Dr. F. A. Barrett, the well-known St. Louis physician of 2652 Shen andoah Street. The doctor saw at once that it differed from the potash preparations in that it was purely vegetable, and becoming interested in it, began a series of investigations, and in a subsequent letter candidly admitted its curative properties, and says: — Wishing to test its virtues further, I used It in my own family, and prescribed it for patients who required a gendml system regulator. As a result, lean say it is an almost absolute cure for constipation, biliousness, dyspepsia, Indiges tion, and sick headaches. These troubles usu ally come from a disturbed conditldn of the stomach and bowels, and Joy's Vegetable Sarsir parilla is the best laxative and stomach regula tor I have eVer seen, and as a general system corrective is almost perfection itself..
