THE NATION'S LAWS.
First Assiult on the Reci procity Act. A Proposed Amendment to the McKinley Bill. Breckinridge of Kentucky Is the Author ot the Measure. nasi New House Bills—Senator Teller Proposea an International Mon etary Conference—The Congo Treaty Ratified. Associated Press Dispatches. Washington, Jan. 11.—The Republi can principle of reciprocity aa embodied in the McKinley act and practiced by (he present administration was assailed lor the first time by the Democrats this session in a resolution which Represen tative Breckinridge of Kentucky asked unanimous consent to offer in the house today. This resolution, the introduction of which was objected to by Mr. Bur rows of Michigan, recites letters recently written by the eecretary of state, by the direction oi the president, to the diplo matic representatives of Venezuela, Nic aragua, Colombia, Honduras and other nations. It declares the action by the president to be unconstitutional and un just, and instructs the committee on ways and means to report before Feb ruary 25th a bill repealing tbe third sec tion of the McKinley act. The president is also authorized without further legis lation to declare the ports of the United States free and open to all the products of any nation in the American hemi sphere, upon which no export duties are imposed, so lonir as such nation shall ad mit to its ports free of taxes flour, corn meal and other breadstuff's, preserved meats, fish, vegetables and fruits; cot ton-seed oil, rice, lumber, agricultural implements, etc., or such other products as may be agreed upon. "I believe," said Breckinridge to a reporter, "that the third section of the McKinley act is unconstitutional; also that retaliation is not only unwise as re gards our foreign relatione, but really burdensome to our own citizens, for it imposes duties which they have to pay, and where this retaliatory measure is adopted once, as to certain measures, it makes an unjust discrimination which may also not only be arbitrary, but may be not free from corruption." "And yet," continued Breckinridge, "being in favor of the freest possible trade consistent with the raising of the needed revenues of the g oveiument, I < appended an instruction to report in lieu of the section, a true reciprocity piovision. I entirely agree with some of the leading Democratic statesmen as to reciprocity treaties and arrangements. There are grave objections to them, hut I think them better than pro hibitory tariffs, and if we cannot enact such revenue laws as I desire, I prefer to see reciprocal arrangements, so far as can be, with all nations, be lieving that every movement toward tree trade will serve as an educational process, accustoming the country to better views and practices in our com mercial relations." Breckinridge's resolution appears to be well received by the ways and means committee. "I think very favorably of the proposition," Baid Chairman Springer. "Of course I cannot say what thefcommittee may decide to do. lam in favor of reciprocity, but whether I will be willing to go to tbe extent pro vided in the article mentioned in the resolution, I cannot say. That ques tion, however, is a mere matter of de tail, and does not affect the vital prin ciple embodied in Breckinridge's reso lution." HOUSE PROCEEDINGS. After the introduction of the resolu tion by Breckenridge, above referred to, the call of states was resumed and the usual flood of new bills were introduced. Dockery of Missouri asked unanimous consent for consideration of a resolution calling on the secretary of the treasury for certain information regaiding unex pended appropriations, expenditures, etc. Henderson of lowa objected, and the resolution was leferred to the committee on appropriations. Simpson of Kansas asked unanimous consent for the immediate consideration of a resolution reciting allegations that the department of agriculture is a harbor lor political employees; that reports are made to board of tiade market wreckers and operators before they are conveyed to the knowledge of the husbandmen, and providing for a committee of investi gation. Hopkins of Illinois moved that the subject be referred to the committee on ways and means, but on motion of Springer it found a retting place in the committee on rules. SOME OF THE NEW HOUSE BILLS. Among tbe hills introduced in the house today were tbe following: By Sweet of Idaho—Providing for an international bimetallic arrangement. Scott, Illinois—Appropriating $100,000 for a display of corn products at the world's fair. Chipman, Michigan—Requesting the president to inform the house what ne gotiations have been carried on with foreign governments relative to the re establish ment and use of silver coin as legal tender money. Hatch, Missouri—Defining options and futures, and imposing a tax on the deal ers therein. Bland, Missouri—For the free coinage of silver. Brosius, Pennsylvania—Appropriating $100,000 for the relief of the famine suf ferers in Russia. At the conclusion of the call of states the house adjourned. SENATE PBOCEEDINOS. In the senate to lay, the vice presi dent presented several official and other documents, including one from the in terior department asking an appropria tion of $150,000 as a deficiency to supply subsistence to the Sioux Indians. A large number of bills were reported from committees and placed on the cal endar. A communication from Ryan, Ameri can minister to Mexico, to the late Sen ator Plumb, suggesting that it would be a generous and neighborly act to return to Mexico tbe trophies of the war cap tured by the United States troops in the Mexican war in 1847, was presented and referied to the committee on foreign re lations. Senator Teller offered a resolution for an international monetary conference, and it was referred to the committee on finance. Tbe resolution declares that it is the THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: TUESDAY MORNING. JANUARY 12, 1892. determined policy of the United States government to use both gold and silver as full legal tender money, either under the rate now existing in the United States, or under one that may hereafter be established by tbe United States, in accord with other nations. It directs the president to invite the governments of the countries composing the so-called Latin union, and such other nations as he may deem advisable to join the United States in a conference, and to adopt a common ratio between gold and silver for the purpose of establishing the international use of bimetallic money and to secure a fixity of the relative values between those metals. Whenever the governments, or any three of them, shall have agreed to unite, and whenever, in the judgment of the president, a sufficient number of nations shall have entered into an in ternational agreement, the president is to declare the ratio so fixed to be the existing ratio in the United States. The president is to appoint not less than three nor more than five commissioners, whose reports to him shall be trans mi-ted to congress, and which shall each receive |5000 a year and reason able expenses. Teller spoke at some length in advo cacy of his resolution. Stewart submitted a statement in con nection with the resolution he oflered last week, instructing the judiciary com mittee what further legislation to secure for the coinage of silver pro vided for under the Bland act. Replying to a query by Mitchell, Stew art said the act of 1890 certainly did not repeal that portion of the Bland act which related to the act of 1837. The resolution was referred to the finance committee. Morgan introduced a bill, which was referred, for forfeiting the United States lands claimed by the Northern Pacific between Bismarck, N. D., and Walla Walla, Wash. THE CONGO TREATY CONFIRMED. The eenate went into executive ses sion and ratified the commercial treaty with the Congo state, and the African slave treaty, after which it adjourned till tomorrow. VORIIEES IIAS IT IN FOR WOOD. The senate judiciary committee today decided to lay over without action until next Friday the nominations of circuit judges. This was done at the request of Voorhees, who desires to enter a protest against the confirmation of Wood. WORLD'S FAIR MANAGEMENT. The house committee on appropria tions today referred to the sub-commit tee on deficiencies, when appointed, the resolution introduced by Henderson of lowa, for an investigation into the progress and management of the world's fair. AM INIEBSIATE CASK. Witnesses Can Nut Be Compelled to In criminate Themselves. Washington, Jan. 11. —The United States supreme court today, in the inter state case of Charles Counselman, appel lant, vs. Frank Hitchcock, marshal of the United States district court for the northern district of Illinois, decided that witnesses cannot be compelled to testify in any criminal cases where the answers might tend to criminate them in any way, or subject them to possible future pros ecution. This case is one of great inter est to railroads and attracted widespread attention. Counselmen waa asked whether he ever obtained from any railroad a rate on grain shipments lower than the open rate to all shippers. He refused to answer on the ground that it might criminate him, and claimed the protection of the constitutional guar antee conferred by the filth amendment. Judge Gresham decided against him, and he held him in contempt of court for refusing to answer questions, aud it was on appeal from Judge Gresham's order that the case decided by the su preme court today came up. Admiral Rodger*' Funeral. Washington, Jan. 11.—Funeral ser vices over the rem lins of Admiral Rodg ers were held this morning at St. John's Episcopal church, at which there was a large number of prominent people. Among them were Vice-President Mor ton, Secretaries Blame and Tracy, Jus tice Gray and a number of senators, Sir Julian Paunceforte and nearly all the other foreign ministers, besides a great number of other friends. General Scho field, Admirals Worden, Franklin and Howes, General Park, Judge Wagner, Paymaster-Geueral Walraugh and Ban croft Davis were the pall-bearers. At the conclusion of the impressive cere monies the remains were taken to the Pennsylvania station and the train taken for Annapolis, where the interment took place. Polly's Command to Her Father. The following extract from "Madame Knight's Journal," written in 1725, shows that children were much tho same at that time as they are now. Thursday, about 8 in the afternoon, 1 set forward with neighbor Polly, a girl about eighteen years, who her fa ther said he had been to fetch out of the Narragansetts, and said they had rode thirty miles that day on a sorry lean horse with only a Bagg under her for a pillion, which the poor Girl often com plained of. About 7 that evening we came to New London Kerry. Here, by reason of a very high wind, we mett with great difficulty in, getting over. The boat tost exceedingly, and our Horses cappered at a very Surprising rate, and set us all in a fright, especially poor Polly, who desired her father to say "So Jack" to the horse to make him stand. But the careless parent, taking no notice of her repeated desires, She Rored out in a Passionate manner, "Pray, Suth, father, Are you deaf? Say 'So Jack' to the horse 1 tell yon." The Dutiful Parent obeyed saying "So Jack, So Jack," as gravely as if he had bin saying (Jhatchiae after young Miss, who with her fright look't all the Colours of ye Rainbow. Working for a Wife.

Increased Activity of the Navy Department. The Vallejo Inquiry Puts a New Face on the State of Affairs. Not a Single Sailor Testifies That He Approved the Action of the Val paraiso Police—British Spies Taking Notes. Associated Press Dispatches. Washington, Jan. 11. —A naval officer of great prominence said this afternoon : "The public should be acquainted with the great gravity of the Chilean contro versy. The investigation at San Fran cisco is developing startling facts, and it will be well for us to appreciate the situation thoroughly. The evidence taken out there shows conclusively that the assault "••as a prearranged affair, and the inquiry at Valparaiso the merest farce. lam thoroughly convinced that the assault was premeditated and in tended as an insult to this government." ACTIVITY OF THE NAVY DEPARTMENT. It was ascertained this afternoon be yond the possibility of a doubt that tbe navy department, since the receipt of the first news of the Vallejo inquiry, has redoubled its preparations for trouble. Activity in the navy yard in this city is increased, and the navy department is pushing every means for saving time. THE SOUTH ATLANTIC SQUADRON. The nary department is informed that the United States ship Chicago, Ad miral Walker's flagship, arrived at Mon tevideo this morning. The other vessels of his fquadron, the Atlanta and Ben nington, were last reported at Behia. They are expected to join the Chicago at Montevideo. The future movements of these will be governed entirely by cir cumstances. They have been ordered to proceed to Montevideo and await further orders. In case of necessity they will be ordered to Chile, but unless such necessity arises they will remain on duty in the South Atlantic. THE TALLEJO INQUIRY. A Most Damning- Case Made Against the Chileans. Vallejo, Cal., Jar). 11.—Nothing very new waß elicited at the Baltimore ex amination today, the evidence being chiefly directed to corroborating that already taken, and to showing the per nicious activity of the Valparaiso police on the day of the riot. Some score of witnesses were examined. All of them were arrested by the police and confined for from four to five days. The great majority of these did not even know there had been a riot until they were ar rested and taken to jail where they found their bruised and bleeding ship mates. Several witnesses testified that the police first made known their desire to arrest them by attacking them from behind, striking them with the butts of their guns or cutlasses. None of these men made any resistance, although two or three, startled by tbe sudden assault, tried to run away. In such cases they were chased by mounted officers, knocked down and beaten. One was stabbed by a policeman with a fixed bayonet, and did not recover from the wound for twenty-six days. The search for the men who expressed to the Valparaiso court their approval of the action of the police during the riot, as claimed by the procurator fiscal in his report, is becoming almost as hope less aa the inquiry for the "man that struck Billy Patterson." Although nearly fifty sailors, including all that were arrested in Valparaiso, have been examined, not one admits that he made such a statement, while a. If ait two thirds of them tell tales of brutality at the hands of either police or soldiers. The remainder oi the day was taken up with testimony as to the sobrieiv of Riggin and Turnbull, the two men who were murdered. The universal testi mony is that they were both sjber very shortly before being attacked. No one witnessed the attack on Turnbull, or knows the circumstances. He is the one who received eighteen knife wounds in the back and died in a few days from the effects. He made a dying statement, which will probably be put in evidence tomorrow. The first witness today was James M. Tilley, colored. He testified that three or four days before the riot at Valparaiso he was warned by a young man on the mole that a mob of Chileans were pre paring to mob the crew of the Baltimore as soon as they came ashore. He was not ashore on the 16th. D. McWilliams saw no riot. He was arrested in front of a hotel on Cochran street. He did not then know of auy disturbance. He dodged the police and fled, and was followed by a* mounted policeman, who lassoed him, caught him and struck him with the flat of a sabre. The police put nippers on McWilliams and dragged him roughly to jail. On the way one of the soldiers called him insulting names and struck him. He never expressed approval of the action of the police; he was unarmed aud sober. John Rooney spent the afternoon in the upper part of town. About dark he started to the Hotel Americano to spend the night. While walking on the street the police seized him and put nippers on his wrist. He said be wanted to go on board ship and a policeman Btruck him with the butt of his gun, inflicting a wound that laid him up for three days. He was not resisting; he never expressed approval of the action of the police; he was unarmed and sober. Warren Brown, a fireman on the Bal timore, saw no rioting; he was on Es meralda street with J. W. Friez of the Baltimore. Both were sober and walk ing quietly to the mole, when six sol diers and a policeman came up una wares behind them and began beating them with cutlasses and guns. The po lice then tied witness' hands behind his bacK, aud when thus helpless one struck him in the face with his fist. He was not resisting in any way. Witness never expressed approval of the action of the police. John W. Friez, a fireman, told the same Btory as Brown. Soldiers came up with out any warning from behind and struck them down. This was his firßt intimation of the presence of soldiers. They then put nippers on his wrist, mangling it, and took him to jail. He was stunned by blows and hardly knew what happened on the road to prison. He was perfectly quiet and sober, and at the time did not know that any riots had occurred. While going ashore on liberty that afternoon the boats passed between the Huascar and Esmeralda, and the crews of those vessels shook knives and fißts at them as they pasßed. He never expiessed approval of the ac tions of the police. Patrick Eagan, a fireman, saw none of the difficulties. He went into Riley's saloon about 2 o'clock and Riley said to him: "For God's Bake don't stay out after dark; the Chileans are going to do you up." He went to the southern part of the city about 7 o'clock, and was walking towards the mole quietly when three policemen arrested him. P. Gallagher, a fireman, was sitting in a restaurant opposite Riley's saloon when he was told that Riggin was being murdered. He started for tbe place, but before he had gone a block a mounted policeman without saying a word knocked him down from behind with the fiat of a cutlass. A crowd of citizens began kicking him while down. The police rescued him and took him to jail. On the way, with his hands tied behind his back, members of the mob struck him several times in the face. The police did not interfere. He never expressed approval of th 6 actions of the police. Samuel Nelson, a seaman, was arrested but not ill-treated. The police robbed him of a table knife, fork and spoon he had bought that day for use in the mess. He was sober and quiet. Alfred Pfeiffer, an orderly of the Balti more, testified that he approached the mole about 5 o'clock and found a mobof 200 people there attacking someone. He said: "They turned on me and I ran and gave them the slip. I went some wayß and suddenly came upon Hamil ton, carpenter's mate of the Baltimore, lying bleeding in the gutter. I tried to help him to a house, but the police would not let me do so. I left and ap proached the Plaza Victoria, where I met five or six policemen, who arrested me and took me to jail. They did not ill-treat me. I had been warned several times that trouble was imminent. I never expressed approval of the action of the police." Edward Dudley took supper in the Plaza Victoria. About 7 o'clock he and a shipmate started down town in a street car. The car was stopped by a crowd, and tbe men got out and tried to run away. A policeman struck Dudley with the butt of a gun, badly hurting him and put him under arrest. They put catgut nippers on his wrists and dragged him roughly to jail. Henry Oarnahan saw no distnrbance. He was arrested with others of the Balti- sore's crew in the Rainbow saloon and taken to jail where he was kept four days. John Swonson, a seaman, saw Claff Wottland, boatswain's mate, with H. Nichols and Henry Casse, apprentices, and others in the Rainbow saloon, and was aIEO arrested and imprisoned four days. Henry Dust, a seaman, was approach ing the mole after dark when he met a number of police with several Baltimore sailors under arrest. The police at tempted to arrest him, but he fled. A crowd of Chileans stopped him within a block. Then a Chilean officer with three gold bars arounl his hat began to beat him with his sword. "After he bad done this," said wit ness, "he shoved me aside and citizens standing by spit on me. I knocked one of them down aud a policeman stabbed me instantly in the face with a fixed bayonet. The wound took twenty-six days to heal. While being led to jail with my arms tied behind my back I was struck twice without giving any provocation; once by a citizen, and once by a policeman. I was kept in jail five days. I had been warned by a young Englishman, a clerk in a mercantile house, that the Baltimore's men would be attacked about dark." One hundred and twenty of the Balti more's crew have been on "liberty in San Francisco for the past forty-eight hours. They returned to the ship today, and of the whole number, only two showed any signs of undue indulgence in liquor. This is considered a remarkable record for so large a number of men who have not been on leave for nearly three months, not in fact since the fated 16th of last October. Captain Schley said this afternoon that he had received no orders as to the future movements of the Baltimore. If all the repairs were made that should be, after a two years' cruise, it would be a month before the vessel was finished. All of these are not essential, however. It would take bat twelve or fourteen days to make Ihe most needed repairs. JOHN mil, INTERESTED. Two British Officers T king Notes In This Country. New Yokk, Jan. 11.—A Washington special says: Whether Great Britain is or is not using her influence with Chile to bring about a satisfactory settlement of the Baltimore outrage, is yet a matter of speculation, but there is abundant evidence that she is showing the deepest interest in the preparations for war which our country has been making. Our naval officers have not failed to dis cover two naval attaches of tbe British legation in this city. Captains Way and Langley have been watching every movement of the navy department since the talk of war with Chile first commenced. These attaches made per sonal visits to different places through out the country were work on war ma terials is in progress. Only a few days ago Captain Langley visited the Mare Islnnd yards and the Union Iron works at San Francisco, to see what truth there is in the rumors of hurried work on the coast defense vessel Monterey and other vessels. There can be no doubt that he discovered that the re ports of great activity in the work on the Monterey were not exaggerated, and it is to be presumed he lost no time in informing bis government of her con dition, and of what a forminable craft she will be when finished. Suffering lor years with severe a'tacksof neu ralgia, 1 tried a number of so-called remedies without any good results. Finally I tiled Sal vation Oil, and to my surprise and del'ght on using one bottle my suffering ended. I cheer fully recommend it to all sufferers. Mrs. Laura ■Lehmau, 535 W.

Cue German Family Soup. LETTER BAG. Dr. Cooke'* Spook* Again. Editors Herald : There appears an item in yourfissue of Sunday in regard to the writer, to some points of which I wish to reply. The item is signed "One who is mystified." Well, I think *ny one in the audience will agree with me that he was certainly the easiest man to mystify they ever saw, especially after all the tricks had been exposed. The gentleman speaks of his article as being sarcastic. Well, if he said any thing which was very sarcastic to me I failed to see that part, unless it be where the gentleman (or critic), which ever you see fit to call him, comes out with the following: "I assert that oc cult or psychic science has reached too grand proportions for small minds to toy with it in so heartless a manner." I agree with him there exactly. If his is one of those very small minds which is so weak as to be overcome by so poor a sleight of hand performance as Dr. Cooke's, I would advise him to, by all means, stay away from such places. When I wrote you on this subject be fore I only noted some of the doctor's best tricks, taking it for granted the others were familiar to the entire audi ence and deeming space in your very ex cellent paper too valuable to be taken up in exposing such tricks as our friend wishes us to explain. But as you have allowed him space in which to call at tention to them, I trust you will allow me space in which to explain. Again, our mystified critic (I wish he had given his name, for I don't know what to call him) says he thinks his personal pride would have asserted itself if he had caught the doctor in one of his triiks and had not bawled it out at the top of his voice before the whole audi ence. We did object to many of the tricks at the time. But what we said was not repeated to the lookers-on. Now, I would ask your many readers which exhibits the most gentlemanly personal pride, the man who jumps up before a crowd like that was and bawls out, "I've got him," or tbe man who goes quietly home and writes out an ex pose 1 of all the tricks worthy of note and publishes it in the best paper in the city? It certainly seems to the writer that the former would be nothing short of an upstart. Now, to the insignificant tricks not exposed in my former com munication, I suppose it unnecessary for me to explain that the cords were so tied that by'drawing the knees closer together the hands would be released. Major Toler was mesmerized before the curtains were even closed, and that did not take up any of the fifteen seconds. Tbe gentleman says the committee sewed up the coat on Dr. Cooke. I will not de ny that Dr. Wise did this, for I do not know positively; butl think Mr. Powell, Dr. Cooke's hired man and notoneof the committee did the Bewing. Anyway, if Dr. Wise did it he did not try to make a tailor's fit on him, nor had he any idea what it was being sewed on for. It was very loose; so much bo that any of us could have done tbe same thing. No, Mr. Whitney waß not mesmerized, nor did he lose his watch without knowing it. He told the doctor he had his watch, and said he felt him take it. The doc tor only gave Mr. Whitney one of his hands, and used the other to take the watch. I stated in my other letter, I believe, that we were dictated to as to how we should tie the strips of cotton, and that way left Dr. Cooke twelve or fifteen inches' use of his right hand —sufficient to do anything he did while in this position. I do not think it neces sary for me to explain again about the table, for it certainly seems to the writer that that trick was made plain enough in Tuesday's issue for any one of clear mind to under stand it. But if Mr. "Mysty" wants to Bee it fully explained and will call on me I will do the trick for him, as he has admitted he is afraid to toy with the spirits on account of his diminutive mind. I like for a man to be honest. "An honest confession is good for the soul." Now, our friend says there was an iron ring put in my hand while I grasped the hand of Dr. Cook. Not so. My eyes had been closed some five or ten seconds when I was asked by the doctor if he could move his hands with out my knowing. I answered in the affirmative, in a voice loud enough to be heard outside. Then the doctor told me to take hold of bis hands, which I did. But the ring was on his aim be fore I took hold of his hand, and was then thrown on mine by a motion of his arm which I felt very perceptibly. Now comes the poorest of all. I am no chemist, but if you will ask a good chemist he can tell you what chemicals to rub on the bottom of the glass and what to put in the water to make it change color. The water was not turned to wine or not even to the color of wine. It was almost black. When Christ changed water into wine he did not merely change the color. Our mystified man refers to W. E. Glad stone, Richard Hodgson and other smart men and infers that we may believe in spiritualism because they do. Well, why not all turn infidelß because Bob Ingersoll and Tom Paine believe that way? If tbe gentleman sees fit to answer this I sincerely .hope be will give his name if he is not ashamed of his faith. Yours very truly, C. W. Innes. Beecham's Pills are faithful friends.
