His Recent Speech Revised and Published. His Personal Fliiifrs at Quay Care fully Expunged. Secretary Windom's Plan for Relieving the Financial Crisis.—Congres sional Forecast. Associated Press Dispatches.l Washington, Sept. 14. —The speech of Representative Kennedy, of Ohio, at tacking tho senate and Senator Quay} which created asensation ten days ago, appears in the congressional record to day, after having been revised by Mr. Kennedy. In his attack on the senate, after declaring that Ohio lias twice, within a decade, been disgraced by sen ators chosen, simply because they were able to outbid other contestants, there is this sentence : "The sly cloak of senatorial courtesy has been used to hide the infamy and corruption which has dishonored and disgraced a body, once the proudest in the land." This is the only reference to the cloak of senatorial courtesy, all that part declar ing that senatorial courtesy had become a stench in the nostrils of the people, and a cloak to cover up infamies, being omitted. The charges made so far as Quay is concerned, consist in the excision of the word "criminal" where it occurs, in two places, and the omission of all mention of Quay by name. Whore it was suggested, in the original speech, that Judas, when he hanged himself.had left "an example for the Mat Quays well worthy of their im itation," there is substituted therefor the following: "an example well worthy of imitation." The sentence "The Re publican party cannot afford to follow the lead of branded criminals," isstruck out altogether, and later on where it was said, "He stands a convicted crim inal before the bar of public opinion," a change is made to read: "He stands convicted before the bar of public opinion." WINDOW'S REMEDY. How He Proposes to Ketieve the Strin g ency in Money. New York, Sept. 14.—Secretary Win dom left this evening for Wiliamstown, Mass,, to join his family. As the result of his conference with the bank presi dents and financiers, Saturday, Secre tary Windom said this afternoon, that he had decided to receive proposals for the sale of 4 per cent, bonds to the amount of $16,000,000, proposals to be received at the treasury depart ment in Washington on Wednes day next. These bonds the sec retary will purchase if a reasonable price is asked for them. At the same time Secretary Windom will offer to prepay for three-fourths of a year the interest on currency (is. Secretary Windom said it was not usual for state ments of this kind to be made before they emanated officially from Washing ton, but owing to the anxiety of so many of the business community to know what was going to be done by the treas ury department, he thought it beat to announce before hand, although it was Sunday, his intentions. Washington, Sept. 14.—1n accoidance with statement made by Secretary Win dom, in New York today, the treasury department has issued notice that pro posals for the sale of $16,000,000 four per cent, bonds to the government, will be received Wednesday. The secretary of the treasury has directed that arrangement be made for the prepayment of interest due January Ist and July Ist, 1891, on bonds com monly known as currency sixes, on and after the 17th inst. Iv answering an inquiry as to the net effect upon the circulation of all the treasury operations during the past month, the treasury depart ment has prepared the following state ment covering the receipts and disburse ments by the government during the period from August 15, 1800, to Septem ber 13, inclusive.

This exhibit, supplementing the facts recently published respecting the operations of the treasury since September Ist, 1889, conclusively answers the mistaken asser tion sometimes made that the treasury either is now, or has recently been en gaged in absorbing and then hoarding in creasing amounts of the money of the country, and the other mistaken state ment about the recent measures adopted by the department to get toioney out of tiie treasury and into the channels of trade. Disbursements over receipts of nearly $44,000,000, in thirty days, is the record." CONGRESSIONAL FORECAST. Outline of the Work to be Accomplished TWN Week. Washington, Sept. 14. —It is expect.-.'-I th at the land grant f rfeitate bill will be agreed to in th>i sen -to tmiorro.v. Sen ator Sawyer will next call up the anti lottery bill, which has already passed the house. So far as known there will be no open opposition to it. Following in the order of pre cedents estabiished by the Republican caucus, there are no measures expected to cause lengthy debates or meet serious opposition until the bill to transfer the revenue marine service to the navy de partment is reached. The opponents of this measure are as determined as ever. The opposition shown by the minority in the house to the consideration of the Langston-Yenable case, has had the effect to determine the Republican lead ers that the house shall act upon that and the Miller-Elliott case. A strong effort is being made to secure a Repub lican quorum. The tariff bill when it conies to the house, will probably he disposed of very quickly, and it is likely if a quorum is in attendance, it will go to conference before the end of this week. GOODS IN BOND. A Misapprehension as to One Section of the Tariff Bill. Washington, Sept. 14—Senator Aid rich said to an Associated Press reporter tonight that there seemed to be some misapprehension in regard to the pur pose and effect of the senate amendment to section 31 of the tariff bill. This sec tion, as it passed the house, provided that all imported mer chandise iv bonded warehouses at. the time the bill went into effect, should he dutiable at the new rates. If the senate had adopted this action, no extension of time for the withdrawal of goods in hand at the old rates, would have been possible. In order that the matter might be open for conference, an amendment was offered that afforded an opportunity for future consideration. This amendment was not intended in any sense to be the final expression of the judgment of the senate committee. HAKIUSON'S SUNDAY. He Attends Divine Service and Strolls Over the Mountains. Cuesson Springs, Pa., Sept. 14—The president and family attended divine service at the Mountain house this morning, and in the afternoon the presi dent and Mrs. Dimmick took a long walk over the mountains. There has been a decided fall iv temperature here in the last twenty-four hours, and today tires are burning brightly in the hotel and all the cottages" It is un derstood the president has been in communication with Representative McKinley and other leading Republican members for several days regarding the treatment of goods in bonded warehouses under the new tariff bill, with a view to the prevention of further stringency in the money market, and titat an agree ment be reached whereby the time for the withdrawal of goods imported prior to the date on which the law goes into effect, will be extended until February Ist. THE WORLD'S FAIR. Commissioner McDonald Still Oppose! to the Dual Site. Chicago, Sept. 14. — Commissioner McDonald, of California, in an inter view to night, gave evidence of dissatis faction about the dual site of the world's far. lie said he is not alone by any means in opposition. The sentiment of the commissioners from all the agricul tural states is in accord with his; in fact it is almost 'universal with the full board, although they have not yet spoken, but they will speak. The commissioners in this mat ter, he says, reflect the views of their constituents, and the people of Chicago should remember one thing, and that is that the nearer they come to pleasing the people of the agricultural states, the larger will be the exhibit, and the greater the success of the fair. Commissioner McDonald does not be lieve that the commission will adopt the dual site unless presented to them in such a modified form as to fully convince them that the greater portion of the ex hibit will be placed in Jackson park. Commissioner Mercier, speaking for Wyoming, said he is opposed to the dual site ; the live-stock interests oi the coun try demand suitable grounds and ample space for themselves, and not isolated from the main exhibition of all other in dustries. Commissioner McDonald has prepared for the committee on permanent organ, ization a report from the sub-committee on mines and mining. Attention is called to the great importance of the mineral industries of the country. It is asked that in extending invitations to foreign governments they be especially requested to furnish a complete display of their mineral resources, together with the methods and machinery used in their mines. This exhibition should in clude a collection of all known minerals and precious stones and all forms of stones used in building or ornamental purposes. Near by could be arranged models of some of the more famous mines of this and other countries, which would furnish a public illustration of the methods of their operation. A Big Swim.

An Unfortunate Marriage Was the Curse of His Destiny. A Rape Fiend, Jailed at San Diego—The Fire Record—Trouble in the Anarchist Camp. Associated Pies Dispatches. Helena, Mont. Sept. 14.—Word has been received that Robert Ray Hamil ton, of New York, whose name is widely known to newspaper readers in connec tion with the trial of his wife early in the year for a cutting affray with her maid, was drowned in Yellowstone park today. The news was brought by J. O. Green, son ofNorvin Green, president of the Western Union Telegraph company, who has been in the park. It seems that Hamilton bought a ranch about two months ago in the park, and had been there since. When Green and party arrived at the ranch about August 23rd, they found that Hamilton had been absenton a hunting trip forseveral days. The next day they started out to search for him, and found his body thirty miles from the ranch in Snake river, while his horse and hunting dog were a short dis tance away. Green is positive in his identification of Hamilton's body. They took it to the ranch and notified the dead man's family. Green lias been in the park ever since, and is surprised that the news has not gotten out be fore. (ireen thinks the unfortunate man was accidentally drowned while trying to ford the river. His horss, found grazing on the hank, hatha saddle on, but it was turned under the belly. NEW Yobk, Sept. 14. —No ilositiye confirmation of the story of Robert Ray Hamilton's death could be obtained from Hamilton's relatives in this city. His father, General Schuyler Hamilton, said he heard from indirect sources that his son was drowned, but had himself received no information about it. He expects news in the morning. Robert Ray Hamilton was a great grandson of Alexander Hamilton, the great American statesman, and a lawyer by profession. He has served several terms in the assembly with credit, and had , hosts of friends. About four years ago Hamilton met Evangeline Brill,whowas then known as Mrs. Joshua Mann, and it was his association with her that ruined his life. Tiie story of his unfortunate experience with her, and the culmination of his trouble last summer, does not need repe tition now. AGITATED ANARCHISTS. A Rumpus Over Continuing Mis. Par sou's and Mrs. Spies' Pensions. Chicago, Sept. 14. —Ttie apostles of anarchy are trembling just now at a re volt among the members of the Pioneer Aid and Support society, which threat ens to dethrone its two goddesses, Mrs. A. R. Parsons and Mrs. C. Spies, the wife and mother, respectively, of two of the executed anarchists. Some time ago the Central Labor Union, which is a fed eration of German trades un ions, in this city, protested, through one of its delegates, against the further payment of semi-monthly pen sions to these women. No action was taken and the attack was renewed to day, the Central Labor union present ing evidence that both Mrs. Spies and Mrs. Parsons were comparatively well oil', owning real estate and having other sources of wealth. There were many red hot speeches, but the vote resulted in favor of tiie continuance of the subsidy to the two women. The prevailing sen timent seemed to be that if the names of these women, which are drawing cards for subscriptions, were stricken from the rolls, the association might as well dis band, for it would no longer be able to collect assessments to pay other bene ficiaries. As the result of the contro versy, the Central Labor Union will probably withdraw from the aid asso ciation. A RAPE FIEND. Jailed After Being Beaten by the En raged Father. San Diego, Sept. 14. —A man named Forsythe was today arrested and placed in jail, charged with criminal assault upon the six-year-old daughter of Cap tain Hunt. Forsythe has been en gaged as a cook on the schooner Ethel, and had just returned from a trip on the lower coast. The assault was committed late yesterday afternoon and became known to the father shortly after. Hunting up Forsythe he admin istered to him a severe beating, and but for timely interference would have placed the villain out of the law's reach. A warrant was then sworn out and For sythe was captured this morning. THE FIRE FIEND. A Big Warehouse Willi'lt. Contents of Grain Burned at Fresno. Fresno, Sept. 14.—Fire started about 1 o'clock this morning in a small dwell ing house adjoining the warehouse of the Fresno milling company, almost in the heart of the dwelling portion of the city.
