I TIiIm Wcck'H Debate.
I W.HIH.VCTO.V, D. C., May 13.?This
| week will be memorable in the annum 01 j
I tariir debate. Not only will it see tlie v
I dose of the general debate on the tariir t
hill, but it will Ik; eonspicuous by reason
of tlx* number of .fine speakers who will t
Ik- heard. To hear Randall, the two r
Hrecken ridges, McKinley, Reed and t
Carlisle make set speeches in one week t
docs not often happen. The exact day }
on which the last speech will be deliv- v
ennl will not be positively determined ^
until Jlomlay, when the Committee on J
Wajrsind Means have concluded to set- t?
fie tbw jH?int. g
Under tin- rule adopted on the 25th of
Jut month, the general debate would n
conclude on Wednesday next, there <1
bavin;' been one day on which a special C
orl'-r intervened and the debate ?us- p
jiended, but as the diseussion has con- tl
tinned, inure members have expressed di
their desire for an opportunity to spenk is
on the subject. At (irst there was a si
.iiin,.iil?v in t/ettimr sneakers enough to tc
occupy tin* time, but "latterly the mom- <>
Ih'W have begun to appreciate that this
is tlit? great debate of the session, and h:
an* now only too anxious to be allowed fr
to participate. o1
Thcre?are about twenty men on eaeli ti
side of the house, or forty in all, who ei
an- not on the present list of speakers, tl
and who are desirous of being allotted F
time. For these reasons Mr. Mills is M
willing to extend the time until Satur- 01
dav. lie desires that every member fr
shall be given the opportunity to ex- tl
press himself on this subject, and that ai
none of them shall feel themselves in is
' any way affronted. This will modify, in bi
softie degree, the programme heretofore w
detailed in these dispatches. m
Mr. Kandall has determined to take ^
part in the debate, and, jus at present ar- tl
ranged, he will speak to an overflowing tl
house on Wednesday. This date is how- ^
ever subject to change, from the fact M
that the Labor Committee is entitled to 1*
that dav, and unless Chairman O'Neill
can be Induced to accept a later date,
immediately after the close of the general
debate, Wednesday will be occupied ai
by business from that committee. It is
understood, however, that Mr. O'Neill
is willing to take either Monday or
Tuesday of the week following. di
Then "Sunset" Cox, of New York, is Q
expected to talk some tune next week, a(
on a day to be selected by himself. On
Friday will come, the speeches of Colonel P1
Itreck'onridge, of Kentucky, and Mr. itl
McKinley, of Ohio. Un Saturday Mr. ai
Jieeil, of Maine, will lead oil', and Speakor
Carlisle will conclude. On these last
two days crowded galleries may be looked c(
for, ami every member will be "in his seat, el
It is probable that two or three days Jo
will be allowed to elapse between the 0j
conclusion of the general debate and
the commencement of the consideration
of the bill under the live minute rule. In J"
that case they will be given to committecs.
An effort will be made to place a ,l
limit to the "five-minute" debate, but C.1
no date has vet been mentioned. Chair- !.V
inan Mills was to-day in conference with
Keed anil MeKinley on this subject.
Mr. Mills nuggestcd" that it would he
useless to occupy seven or eight weeks y
in the hcaringof amendments ollered by "l
the Republicans, and then voting upon l"
them. 1 iciMkei It hem to bring the matter j
to n test vote at once, by moving to u
strike out everything after the enacting r(
clause of the Mills bill and to substitute
the measure prepared by themselves. ^
lie urged that . 11
and permit the transaction of other busi- in
ness l?efore the session closed. Of w
course, no detinito answer was returned,
but the proposition is being seriously f0
considered by the Republican leaders. jj
The Ways*and Means Committee lias
been busy in hearing the arguments of jj
ineinhers who offered amendments to lt]
the taritT bill in the caucus Wedues- f
day night. Mr. Kavner, of Mary- n(
land, was heard in behalf of his amend- tj
liient to retain the existing rate of duty ,j,
on glass. Messrs. Johnston and .Simmons,
of North Carolina, spoke in favor 0,
of the repeal of the internal revenue ()]
HVHtein and for some minor changes in '
the bill atleeting local industries in their V.
State. Mr. Bacon, of New York, thought ^
the reduction made in the tnritF on Q|
cutlery was entirely too great, and j,
asked for the restoration of at least a ...
part of it.
In talking with the correspon- /j
dent to-day, Mr. Mills said: "We are w
considering these amendments in a u|
spirit i?f compromise, and we are ?lisp<?sed
to make the changes asked for in H|
those cases where we are convintAd that
the weight of evidence tends that way. rj
We appreciate the fact that we are not
infallible in that we may have mado H
mistakes. When these are pointed out
to us we are willing to amend them." s
N" Haul action has been taken on any N
ol the amendments that have thus far ?
lx't-n considered. This will be nostponed n
until all the hearings have been con- Jj
chuUM. Then the committee will make J'
it* r. |Hirt and present it to the caucus.
It is exported that this will be held on .
either Wednesday or Thursday night. |
Mr. Mills is confident that his plan of
making the bill a party matter will bo a
very successful one in the end. As he
expressed it this afternoon, "If any 1
Denim-rat chooses, when the time comes,
to vote against the passage of the bill
an<l stab the heart of the Democratic a
party, the blood will bo on his hands *
and not on ours."
ll<' is determined to leave no stone 1
unturned in order to secure success with 1
this bill, and at present it is admitted by g
candid Republicans that the chances
K'ein to be much in its favor. The three *
Independents in the House, Messrs. c
Anderson, of Iowa, Smith, of Wiscon- f
.mil imjiKiiiH, oi > lrpmiu, w>k?*h"'?
*?th a Republican, Mr. Fitch, of New I
lork, will all vote for the bill. To off- p
wt this, however, Mr. Kauto Nelson, of c
Minnesota, who has been counted as o
?n?' of thy Republicans who would sup- i
|*>rt the measure, has been whipped i
>nt.? line and has stated that ho woulil i
not vote for it. 1
The number <?f Democrats who will t
follow Mr. Randall's lead is very uncer- 1
tain, but Mr. Mills and other members
?>f the Ways and Means Committee, do- !
elare their confidence thattho protection i
Democrats, united with the Republican*,
will not In; able to defeat the pass- <
ape of the bill. Whether this will prove <
true remains to bo seen, but it is certain ]
that Mr. Milla' action in caucusing on i
the bill htiM not strengthened Mr. Kan- i
dall's hands. 1

Nkw York, May 1!).?The eleventh t
iy's session of the Methodist Episcopal I
onference opened yesterday morning '
. the Metropolitan Opera House with
rayerby Kev. Alexauder Martin, I'res- ;
lent of the Depauw University, Indi- I
in. Bishop i'ostcr presided for the |
ico in I time. Tliu Committee on f
>pncy will probably report in favor of i
ecting four bishops. This will cause a i
ing debate, as there are a large number 1
' the delegates who believe that there j
lould be at least six or seven more t
ishops. They claim that the bishops j
Ave too much work to do, and that with
larger number the work of the church
in he extended. Ainoug the candiites
is Dr. A. B. Leonard, formerly of
ittsburgh. 1
Kev. fir. Hunter, of Illinois, as soon (
I the roll was called, moved to suspend ,
le rules and take uj? the order of the
ly, the reading of ilishop Taylor's re- J
?rt of his work in Africa. When the I
ishop stepped to the front of the stage \
le house was packed with people, who j
>se to their feet and applauded for sev*al
minutes. It was as much as the j
hairman could do to suppress the en- ]
msinsm. < # j
Bishop Taylor, in opening his report, j
iade a lew remarks, lie said that he '
id been suffering from a cold and j
ould not be able to read well. Pro- j
icding, he said liis success in Liberia .
as wonderful. The people live comirtably
and dress well on Sunday. The ,
ishop" read a statement comparing the j
ate of affairs in Liberia in 1884 and j
188. Schools, scholars, teachers and
inisters have increased in numbers,
he liquor traffic has grown less, and is
ow confined entirely to the Dutch seters.
The suppression of the vice is
lie to the worn of Miss Amanda Smith.
He next gave a history of his experiice
for the past thirty-five years. Bish- 1
[>Taylor took a long timejto explain his |
jsiti'on toward the General Conference. 1
; being claimed that he was not enti- 1
ed to a seat among the bishops, the gist 1
f his remarks was to the effect that he
ad not been guilty of any disloyalty,
nd, therefore, is entitled to a voice in
le body. "In the language of Dr.
urry," said Bishop Taylor,;"to anybody
ho accuses me of disloyalty, I deny the
llegation and defy the alligator." 1
Bishop Taylor furnished an exhibit of i
:atistics showing the growth in all mat rs
connected with his mission to Libeia
since 1884. The exhibit of statistics

Nkw York, May 13.?It was at first
nnounced that Mgr. Houland would be
ormally received by Bishop Totter into
ho Episcopal Church a few days after
he publication of his letter to the Pope.
Such reception, however, has not taken
>lacc. The reason is thai Bishop Potter
lesired to place the conclusive stamp of
alsity upon the charges brought against
Mgr. Bouland before his final acceptance,
n this course the latter himself has very
jladly acquiesced. lie has written asuc:inct
narrative of all that he lias done
md all that has happened him since he
ramo to this country down to the p result.
and this will be carefully compared
.vitn the results of an investigation
tvhich luus been set on foot to verify by
,he most irrefragable proof of all that he
tias ever claimed for himself.
Bishop Potter has appointed an investigating
committee, which has already
made considerable progress in its labors.
It has written to every Catholic Bishop
or Archbishop in America under whose
ecclesiastical jurisdiction Mgr. Bouland
lias been to inquire as to lus character
and standing L>r. Aleigh II. Mackay
said: "The Monsignor's record becomes
clearer every day. There uan be no
doubt of the result. It is only to l?e deplored
that Catholic clergymen should
be so overxealous in attacking him without
flret being certain of the Tacts which
they state."

and killing the engineer, S. A. Woodruff,
and fireman, Harry Kitxmiller. Woodruff
was literally blown to pieces, partoi
his body being found 300 yards distant.
He lived in Martinsburg, and leaves a
family. Kitzmiller lived in Cumberland,
and was unmarried. The force of the
explosion tore the engine all to pieces
wrecking almost half of the train. The
brakeman made a narrow escape, being
buried in a car of bran. The road was
blocked for eight or nine hours. Passenger
trains used the track of the West

The murder was the result of a quarrel

In Irclaml?Knglaml Muit do Something
for T?itmnt Farmer*.
New Yobk, May 13,?The Catholic
Newt has received the following cablegram
from Rev. Francis Steflens, its correspondent
in Rome: The recent rescript
of the Holy Father on the Irish
question is an indication of the Papal
policy to be pursued with respect to the
agitation now being cameo on m the
j Emerald Isle. Archbishop Walsh, of
Dublin, had many audiences with His
Holiness on the subject The Pope affirms
that, as far as is in his power he
will protect the interests of the Irish
people, but that he will condemn everything
in the land war of a revolutionary
The Holy Father has gone further, and
1 has informed the English Government
j that ho expects them to do something
for the Irish tenant farmers. This was
insisted on by the Papal Secretary of
State in his conference with the Duke of
Norfolk. A further explanation of this
decree is that it was inspired by the request
of a few Irish Bishops, whobrought
tho matter to the Vatican's attention for
official action.
It is known that Paraell was opposed
to the plan of campaign and h? never
taken part in it. It is believed in Rome
that the interests of Ireland can be preserved
by means that will not antagonize
public sentiment and bring the
Irish cause into disfavor.

I Sold to be In a Bod Way?Public Frightened I
at the Condition of Tiling*.
London, May 13.?When the usually
stolid Englishman gets frightened he
goes all to pieces, and his symptoms are
highly entertaining. Just at this moment
the horrible conviction iB rampant ?
' in the minds of Britons that the song
was wrong after all, and that they are
' apt to find themselves slaves almost any "
fine day. The angry muttering about
the weakness of the navy and of the
country's fliihtinc apparatus generally,
has grown into a storm of hysterical indignation.
Instead of singing; "We've got the
. men, weVe irot the snips, we've got the
[ money too," this unhappy people are K(
crying out: "We've not got any men or dc
t any ships worth mentioning; they won't Rj
i spend our money to buy\?m, and we
could not lick Bulgaria or Switzerland."
The trouble was started by Lord ov
1 Charles Beresford, who worked his way th
, into a high position in the navy, found Co
. that things were in a very rotten condi- an
r tion, with jobbery, corruption and incompetency
plentiful, and said so.
Beresford seems a fairly good reproduc- rie
. tion of the old, devil-may-care type of i0e
British tar, and he is bow-legged. He j
played unlimited and dangerous pranks .
as a middy, fought a regular prize fight nv
later on and won it, in a Wnitechapel Ar
barn on a Sunday morning, and in many 0f
other ways has worked into the hearts
of his countrymen. While Beresford t
has been exposing the weakness of the t
navy, Lord Wolsely has been doing as
much for the army, and incidentally explaining
how, besides having a wgak p.*
army, England utterly lacked the forti- j
lication to keep back the strong armies
of other countries.
Hosts of lesser lights have been making
speeches and writing articles to add A 1
to the panic, and even the old Duke of 81
Cambridge himself, cousin to the Queen S
aud Commander-in-Chief of the army, ter
has proclaimed that things were wrong
by begging on every conceivable occasion
for money to put them right. The l)la
Government is very sensitive to these poi
attacks, which are regularly aggravated pie
by the malicious buzzing of Lord Kan- .
dolph Churchill. ji_(
Last night, in the Upper House, Lord j
Salisbury miule an attack upon Lord j. ]
Wolsely" for the latter's indiscreet disclosures,
an attack so bitter that it is
difficult to see how Wolsely will bo able
to avoid resigning. This will add fuel
to the ilainc, for Wolsely, having partly tj
through ability, but largely through rtlJ1
favoritism, had every opportunity of Jj"
showing ofF in critical times, has come .
to be known as "our only general." ^
Lord Beresford, nothing if not plucky, .
and who has already resigned because
the admiralty would not do as he said,
is now challenging them to try him by ,
x'ourt martial and dismiss him iu dis
grace from the service if they can
prove that he has exaggerated and
made statements not founded on fuct. ' .
He is liable to cause a scare and a panic. (
It is not in the least likely that the admirality
will take up the challenge, us L
Beresford evidently knows what he is t.
talking about. Unfortunately for the J?
country tho sole effect of all this scare, ,
so fur as one can see, will be to extract a .
good many millions sterling from the j
people's pocket, for little attention is
paid to the sensible ones who demand ^
that instead of more money being poured
into tho ofllclal rnthole, amateur officialism
be pulled up by the roots and good
men and a properly organized system tu?

to the meanest Unionist rag. He was H?

and Nicholson was shot twice in the
groin. He was picked up ami carried
into the How residence, where he was
dying last night. Jenkins lived just in

told his wife ho had shot a man.

[ bed with n revolver in bis hand, lie
[ threatened the oflicer, but Little was too
quick, and shot him in tho thigh. He
was taken to the lock-up, nnd is there
yet, resting as easy as could be expected.
It seems as though Nicholson and Jenkins
were good friends, but that Jenkins
and the man Rose, at whose house the
shooting took place, were at outs, and
Jenkins now savs if he ever gets u
