CALIFORNIA PRODUCTS.
A Good Demand for Them In the Empire
City.
New York, Sept. I.— Pacific coast
hops, choice of 1889, are now quoted at 25
@27 cents ; medium 22(ffi24 cents; crop
of 1888,12(817 cents. California wool is
quiet. The market ranges from 9to 22
cents.
The demand for California fruit is
still unabated. E. L. Goodsellsays he
expects thit to be the heaviest week of
the season and that prices will be fully
maintained. Sixty carloads of Cal
ifornia fruit, mainly pears and
peaches, were disposed of in this
city by auction last week. Some of
the sellers have recently adopted the
plan of holding sales at railway stations
in order to prevent the extra shaking up
which tender packages receive in cart
age to the auction rooms. Since the
California picking season began there
have been delivered in this city almost
250 carloads, and from the prompt sale
they have met with, it looks if the pre
diction of a few years ago that New
York will yet have to use a 100 cars a
week of California fruit is on the road to
realization.
ARKANSAS ELECTIONS.
Largely Increased Majorities For the
Democratic Candidates.
Little Rock, Ark., Sept. I.—The Ga
zette says: The state and county elec
tions today passed oiT quietly, so far as
known. Nothing more than a few dis
turbances of an ordinary char
acter have occurred, and these
did not afl'ect the results. Partial re
turns and estimates received by the
Gazette, from thirty of seventy-five"coun
ties in the state, indicate a "largely ir '
creased majority for Governor Eagle
and the Democratic state ticket, over
two years ago. The Democratic major
ities on county officers and legislators
have been correspondingly increased.
The Democrats claim the state by from
25,000 to 30,000 majority. In the third
ward and several townships in this
(Pulaski) county double polling places
were established, owing to the charge
that the county judge violated the law
in appointing judges of elections.
A special to the Gazette from Conway,
says: John McCullough was shot and
killed tonight. It is supposed the
shooting was done by j. L. Wil
liams. McCullough's brother, Will,
was the Democratic candidate
for sheriff, and Williams was Ids
opponent on the Republican ticket.
While the vote was being counted to
night, a disturbance arose and.McCul
loug was killed.

TUESDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 2, 1890.
AT THE CAPITAL.
Lack of Harmony In tho
Republican Ranks.
Discord Crops out In the'Legi_H
lative Proceedings.
Senator Aldrich Calls Blair and Hoar
Buncombe Statesmen.
Paddock Cannot Swallow the Senate
Tariff Bill—The Raum Investi
gation.
!
Associated Press Dispatches. I
Washington, September L—ln the,
senate today, Sherman gave notice dfl
an amendment which he proposed to j
offer to the tariff bill, looking toward
reciprocity with Canada, in coal,
and toward "extending trade rel|K
tions between Canada and the United
States."
Blair and Hoar wanted to let the
tariff bill go over, as it w;as Labor day,
and "do something for labor by consid
ering labor bills.
Aldrich thought Blair and Hoar were
inclined to buncombe, whereupon Blair
characterized Aldrich as a "representa
tive of monopoly."
The presiding officer called Blair to
order for unparliamentary ianguage, and
the tariff bill was taken up, Aldrich
objecting to its postponement. The
pending question was the finance com
mittee's amendment to the woolen
schedule, increasing the duty per pound
on wool and woolen yarns from twice to
two and a half times the duty imposed
on unwashed wool of the first class.
Paddock said he would be glad to fol
low the majority of the finance commit
tee, but he regretted that he could not
see his way clearly to it as to all the
sections. The agricultural west never
favored high protective duties, but did
favor sufficient protection to cover the
difference in wages, while at the same
time the resemblance at least of a for
eign market was preserved. The west
regarded "revision of tariff" as meaning
"reduction of the tariff" whenever pos
sible, and not increases in tariffimposts ;
he was confident the demand for a lower
range of duties would have to receive an
early and favorable response from con
gress.
So long as a high tariff was needed to
keep the wheels of industry in motion,
it had been uncomplainingly supported
and properly defended, but the senti
ment was growing, and belief was be
coming a fixed conviction in the west at
least as to some of the protected indust
ries, that the decreased cost of protec
tion should now be met by a greater de
crease of duties than the manufacturers
had vet been willing to accept. He
(Paddock) would reduce the duties on
the necessaries of life to the lowest point
consistent with tho maintenance
of home industries, and would demand
reasons for every import; reasons that
should be specific and conclusive, not
only respecting the need of a duty, but
as to the amount of such duty. The bill
as reported, while much improved over
his bill, was something of a disappoint
ment. He was certain that all who were
favored most directly by the mainten
ance of a high tariff would be better sat
isfied with a bill on the lines laid down
by the committee, than any other class.
He believed in free sugar, but believed
it should be secured through some such
plan of reciprocity as indicated by Blame
and formulated by the finance com
mittee, but whatever might be done in
that respect, if liberal bounty to the
home producer of sugar were assured
for fifteen years, there would be no oc
casion whatever thereafter for the Im
portation of a single pound of sugar into
the United States. He would treat the
proposed tin plate industry in the same
way. He felt certain it would be the
part of wisdom and justice to adopt the
bounty policy, rather than increased
duties.
After a long discussion, the committee
amendments were agreed to, 20 to 18.
To the next paragraph, relating to
wool or worsted clothes, knit fabrics,
etc., the committee reported an amend
metlt increasing the duty from twice to
three times the duty per pound on un
washed wool of the first class, which was
agreed to. On motion of Carlisle the
word "shawls" was inserted after t!.«
words woolen or worsted clothes.
To the next paragraph, relating to
blankets, hats of wool and flannels for
underwear, the committee amendments
make the duty the same as that of a
pound and a half of unwashed wool of
the first class, in addition to ad valorem
rates. Agreed to.
Finally the wool schedule was com
pleted, and Vance offered, as an addi
tional section, an amendment of which
he heretofore had given notice, allowing a
reduction of the duty on goods pur
chased with the proceeds of American
farm products sold in a foreign country.
He will ask for an evening session to
morrow in which to address the senate.
The conference report on the bill re
lating to collisions at sea was agreed to,
and the senate adjourned.
IN THE HOUSE.
A Small Sensation as Regards the Raum
Investigation.
Washington, Sept. 1. —Stockbridge,
of Mary land,moved to suspend the rules
and pass the bill providing for govern
ment inspection of coal mines in the
territories. Agreed to.
Cooper, of Indiana, rising to a ques
tion of privilege, stated that one of the
charges in the resolution offered by him
for an investigation of the commissioner
of pensions, was that the commissioner
was selling stock in a refrigerator com
pany to employees of the pension office.
Today he learned that one of the mem
bers of the investigating committee,
Representative M. L. Smyser, of 01d.,,
was one of the stockholders. Cooper
therefore offered a resolution discharg
ing Smyser from the committee.
Smyser said he had no nth ttion
that he was going to h ippointed on
the committee nntil tht announcement
was made by the speak 1 \s a mem
ber of the committee, h entered upon
the discharge of his dm; and had done
it faithfully and well. He did own
some of the stock, but that fact in no
manner could afl'ect the integrity or
lienor of an honest man.
Smyser felt that there was nothing in
the charge against General Raum in any
way affecting him, but in order to sat
isfy the other side of the house and the
country, in duty to himself he most re
,spect fully asked to be relieved from fur-
ther service on the committee. The re
quest was granted, and the speaker
stated that when he appointed the com
mittee he had no knowledge of any re
lation between the gentleman from Ohio
and the company referred to. The chair
had made the appointment from the
committee on pensions and on invalid
pensions because he thought it would
facilitate the disposal of the matter to
I have gentlemen serving on the commit
tee who had some knowledge of the pen
sion office.
On motion of Chipman, of Michigan,
the senate bill was passed, es-tending
the criminal jurisdiction of the circuit
,and district courts to the Great Lakes
and their connecting waters.
Perkins, of Kansas, moved to suspend
1 the rules and pass the bill to ratify and
confirm the agreement with the Sac
and Fox and lowa tribes of Indians in
Oklahoma, and after explanation by
Perkins and Peel, it passed.
Adjourned.
I A JUNKETING TRIP.
-_J
A Congressional Committee to Visit the
Territories.
Washington, Sept. I.—At a meeting
of the house committee on territories
today the subject of consideration of
bills for the admission of New Mexico
and Arizona into the Union being under
discussion, a preamble and resolutions
in regard to the matter, drawn up by
Representative Mansur, of Missouri,
were unanimously adopted.
The preamble recites that there have
been bills introduced in the house
and referred to the territories committee,
looking to the future admission of the
territories of New Mexico and Arizona;
asserts that great contrariety of opinion
exists as to the wisdom and propriety of
their immediate admission to the union.
The resolution authorizes the com
mittee on territories to send a sub-comm
ittee of seven members to New Mexico
and Arizona with authority to inquire
into the social, educational, financial and
moral conditions existing in the terri
tories, and report whether the territo
ries are, in justice to themselves and
their relations to the other states of the
union, prepared for statehood or not.
The resolution also authorizes the sub
committee on their ttip to visit such lo
calities in the territory of Utah as they
may deem proper, and there take and
report testimony upon the question of
the prevalence and extent of, or decad
ence of, the doctrines and practices of
plural and celestial marriages as taught
by the heads of the Mormon church.
The committee is required to make its
report at the second session of the pre
sent congress.
THE RAUM INQUIRY.
The Commissioner Charged With Having:
Doctored the Record.
Washington, September I.—The spec
ial house committee investigating the
charges against Commissioner Raum re
sumed session this morning. Cooper
opened the proceedings by complaining
that the record had been doctored and
unwarranted corrections made by Com
missioner Raum and much mat
ter stricken out. An instance, he
said, was in the commisssioner's tes
timony relative to the Cincinnati
Commercial Gazette's interview, where
the commissioners interpolated words to
make his testimony conform to that
giten by General Boynton. The com
mittee instructed the stenographer to
see that the record was complete.
Smyser, a member of the. committee,
was sworn. He said he was a stock
holder in the refrigerator company.
The proceedings in the house, resulting
in the resignation of Smyser, caused the
oostponement of the investigation until
fhe vacancy is filled.

HIGH PRICED MARES.
Monroe Saulsbury Purchasing; Fashion
ably Bred Breeders.
Lexington, Ky., September, I.—lt is
said that Monroe Saulsbury, the ten
times millionaire of California, has
placed $80,000 in the hands of the
firm of Brasfield & Tipton here Do be
distributed in purchasing fashionably
bred mares. These gentlemen have
expended about $35,000 and secured
a number of mares. One, a daughter
of Mambrino Patchen, was bought at
a cost of $8000 in Nebraska. Another.
Miss Bemis, by the same horse,
cost $7600, and two daughters of
Wilkes Boy and Annie Jackson,
daughter of Red Wilkes, with a sucking
filly by .Bellboy, together cost in the
neighborhood of $8,000. The great two
year-old Evangeline, with a record of
2:18%, was also secured for $8,000, but
owing to a split Saulsbury's agents re
fused to close the trade. The mares are
being secured to be bred to Director
(2:17) and Monroe Chief both
of which great horses are owned by Sanls

of the kind made by any one man in
America this year.
A X TEM, RETIRED*
His Injured Hoof Ma-kes It Unsafe for
Him to Trot This Season.
New Yokk, Sept. 1. —The injury to
Axtell's hoof, caused by severe training
last year, threatened recently to give
him serious trouble, and on the advice
of the most expert veterinarians in the
west, it was decided to retire him for
the season, so the question of supre
macy between him and Sunol is not
likely to be decided before next fall.
The 'Tribune will tomorrow affirm that
there has been a trust in the matter of
star attractions for trotting meetings
this year, but the retirement of Axtell
breaks it up.
