In Agricultural Industry.
Washington, May 8.?After the road
in# of tho journal the House went iuU
Committee of the Wholo on tho tarif
bill.
Mr. Dockerv. of Missouri. wdd thottlw
present system of taxation did not rtstrict
the revenue to tbo neods of the
government was shown by tho surplui
in tho Treasury which had compelled
tho Treasury Department to purchase
bonds, paying therefor a premium ol
$57,000,000. But the surplus was only
an incidental burden. The substantial
burden was tho oppressive taxation ol
the people, lie favored tho enlarging ol
tho markets for agricultural products
and the unshackling of life's daily neede
from unnecessary and paralyzing taxation.
In the hut campaign the Republican
party had claimed that tho farmers
would be benefitted by protection. Yet
after tho Republican victory tho depression
in agriculture was greater than ever.
This depression had followed a
great protective victory. It was
not a temporary condition that tho
country had to deal with. Farm prices
have not recovered sinco tho panic of
1S73. Tho constant tendency in the
west has been downward. Since that
time in overy western city and town
there were signs reading "Eastern money
to loan on improved farms." The avowed
purpose of a protective tax was to
prohibit competition by adjusting duties
so high as to prohibit importation, or
Hntliuiently high to enable protected interests
to advance materially tho prices
of their wares, lie then proceeded to
argue that it was not in the power of
any taritl to raise the price of any agricultural
product unless it could.be Been
that it was brought into competition
with a foreign article. Instead of having
to meet competition on our own soil,
the American farmers exported their
produce to eupply tlio agricultural deficiency
of European couutriea.
Discussing the subject of trusts as connected
with tho tariti, ho denounced tho
<lrepsed beef monopoly of Chicago as
Imving plundered tho farmers of the
West by its unscrupulons.exactiona.
MR. BURROWS' Sl'EECH.
Mr. Beriows, of Michigan, said: The
condition of tho Treasury to-day was an
overflowing one. What was the remedy ?
The Republicans would reduce the surplus
by one theory; the Democrats by
another, and it was this conflict of theories
which had prevented tho remedy
Jjeing applied. It was a theory which
prevented the passage of a tariff bill last
Congress. The House was Democratic,
tho Semite Republican, and the bill
failed. In the "campaign of 1SS8 the two
theories were presented to tho American
people, and a verdict was rendered in
favor of the Republican theory of taxation?a
verdict so pronounced as to
wrest tho Presidency and the popular
branch of Congress from the Democratic
party and confer them on the Republican
party. [Applause.]
lie, who boiioved in lreo trade, rnuEt
oupport tho Democratic party, and he
who believed in protection must sustain
tho Republican party. A tariff for
revenue only was a step towards faeo
trade, and the Republican party was
it. [ApplauBO.l

to the latter said: The Democrats
unclothed, except in foreign wool, would
stand shivering on the coast of the east
and drink the health of English labor
and English capital out of English cups.
iApplause.] Iree trade, he said, meant
unrestricted competition, unrestricted
competition meant cheap goods; competition
in cheap goods meant cheap
labor; competition in cheap labor meant
cheap flesh and blood; competition in
uheaj)lleth and blood was slavery. Cheap
clothing and cheap food were of no value
if human labor was cheaper still. [Applause.]
Free trade meant cheapness
to '.tho rich and idle, but longer houre
and harder work to the labor. In this
race lor cheapness the Republican party
did not propose to enter.

Mr. McMiilen, of Tennessee, said thai

United States who Jived during the wai

Washington*,May 8.?The Republican
Senatorial caucus this morning was j
rather largely attended. The silver ^
question was again the Bubject of discussion
and no agreement was reached.
The silver men refuse to accept and support
a bill containing a clause which will \

in bullion under any condition. As one t
of them expressed it: "We refuse to
give away tho money value of silver,
planting ourselves squarely upon-the
nlatform of the party. If any Republican
Senators want to betray the party,
it will not be the silver men."
Senator Jones, who had been expected
to open the debate on the bill when it
came up iu tho Senate, is in Now York.
He waa telegraphed yesterday by his
colleague, Senator Stewart. In his
answer Senator Jones didn't fix any
time for his return, and stated he would

TAMMANY TIGER AFTER (SOKE.
; Another Wnrrant Out for the Arrest of tho
j Editor of the l'ost.
p New York, May 8.?Tammany is not
done with tho editor of the Evening Post.
1 Ilia former arresta for libel having come
[ to nothing, Tammany has dccided to try
: again. The tiger has been too sorely tried
by Mr. Godkin, and longs to
1 fasten ita claws in tho editorial
I flesh. Civil Justice Peter Mitchell
I to-day made a complaint charging
3 Mr. Godkin with criminal libel and
i aaked for a warrant for his arrest. The
warrant was i6sued, but Mr. Godkin was
) not in his oilke when tho policeman
3 called to Berve it. The ground of the
. complaint is an article which was print1
ed in tho Evening J'osl on April 28.
Justice Mitchell alleges that the article
. tends to injure his reputatiou and standi
ing as a lawyer and impairs his useful
nesa as a civil justice in the administraf
tion of tho law. The following is an
a extract from tho Pott of that date, which
1 Judge Mitchell avers ia false and lif

Utica, N. Y.,May 8.?Tho Chonango
county Poor llouso anil InBano Asylum
at Preston, six miles west of here, were
entirely consumed by llro last night.
Tho llro was discovorod about eleven
o'clock in tho north wing of the poor
houso building, where the idiots were
kept. There woro no proviaions for extinguishing
tho flames. Tho keepers
and neighbors gave their attention to
setting out tho, 125 paupers and insane,
and let the building burn. Theso were
an rescued, out eleven idiots are missing.
Six bodies wero seen slowly burning.
The other five are supposed to be covered
up. Tho poor house building was
three stories nigh and built of wood.
The Insaue Asylum was nlso a wooden
building two stories high and only sop*
arated from the poor house by a drive*
way.
Tho property was estimated worth
525,000, and is insured for $20,000. The
UniverBalist and Baptist Churches hnve
jeen opened for the reception of tho
infortunatea. Superintendent of the
Poor Babcock, of South New Berlin, lias
eit for the scene of the disaster. The 1
jritfin of the fire is unknown. Yester- i
lay afternoon a woman was in tho idiot i
lepartmeut smoking. She put her pipe i
n her pocket and was soon enveloped
n liames and later died from tho effects
>f the burns. It is supposed that some
>f tho idiots got hold of some matches, 1

juilding. The names of the dead so far
iiscovered are:
Sarah Mills, Mary Gallagher, Sarah
3ailey, Laura Gray, Delia Benedict,
Deborah Dibble, Mary Aun Dibble, Lucy

A SCENE or TERROR.
All the departments in the institution*
vera crowded,'and it can well be irnigined
that the rescue of the poorcreaures,
many of them old and very feeble,
ind others wild with fi?nr nml '
vhich added to their insane delusions, .
vob by no means an eaay^task. The
ceeper and citizens worked as best they J
:ould to carry, drive, drag and push the j
nniatea out, but the flames spread so 1
apidly there wa3 little time, and the 5
;reat wonder is that so many were res- 1
iuciI. There was little system in the s
:onduct of tho eflort to save. People 1
vent at it haphazzard, appalled by the j
iwfulness of the cries and moans cf the
nmates and the mnguitudo of the catas- 1
rophe. Not one.iof those who worked 1
xpected that so many would be saved, ]

Sheriff McKinney has sworn in a large 1
lumber of deputies and is searching for
uissing paupers. The number of dead
nay possibly reach thirteen, but from
be state of the ruins it is impossible to
tate exactly. The most careful account

hat more than thirteen were burned.
V. later message from Norwich says sev;ral

voman, was smoking a pipe and set her (
;lothing and bedding on fire, arid was (
jurned fatally bofoie the Hamea could ;

id laat night. It iB supposed that the iro

The keeper was awakened by a pauper,
ind attcmpted'to releaso the idiots, but ,
was driven back by the fire, lie then
ran through. tho other buildings in his
night clothes, rousing tho inmates and 1
turning them out of doors. The insane 1
patients had to be forced out, and fought
ugainst release, but all weresaved. Most
of them were taken under guard to the
Methodist m l Universalis churches till
other quarters are provided, and such a
gibbering motley congregation was never
eeen in tho churches before. Some
escaped and took to the .woods, where
the Sheritl' and a large number of deputies
are hunting for thein-to-day.
Keeper Mainwaring rescued several of
them at the peril of his life. Tho scene
at tho burning was indescribable and
the horrors of Longue Pointo were reenacted
on a smnller scale:' Demented
and terror-stricken inmates wandered
around the burniug piles in a hopeless
manner. The great wooden buildings
lit up tho hills_ for miles around. A
bucket brigade "was formed , of the citizens
of Preston and about a hundred
labored to save the smaller building in
the reaT, with bucccbs. The stables and
farm buildings were saved.
The Board of Supervisors is in special
session to-night at Norwich to take
measures for prompt relief. Tho coroner
will hold an inquest into the disaster.

After tne destruction of.the barn Mr.

i
St. Louis, May 8.?At the second day's
session of tho Methodist Gonornl Con*
ferenco a good deal of timo was taken |
up In report*. Tho qundrienninl report |
of tho Board of Missions was submitted <
by Secretary I. G. Johns. It says the '
present quadrienniuin opened with a ^
debt of over $100,000. The total ,
collections of tho year wero $910,- t
379, and tho appropriations ?820,527. i
tug uebt baa been reduced to ?14,000. J
Tho mission to Ohini and Japau is re- y
ported to be in a prosperous and growing h
condition. Tho mission to Brazil is en- v
larging in all directions, and the call for
reinforcements'is urgent. The mission
in tho Indian Territory is prospering, J
and mote ministerial force is demanded. tj

more than self-supporting, with the
Bimr'.e exception of tho Quarterly Review,
and the Review has sustained a pecuniary
loss of $1,270.
A number of memorials and petitions I)
were announced and referred to standing
or special committees. Two appeals
trotn subordinate conferences were of- o,
fered, one of which was allowed and the
3ther withdrawn for the present. Mr. y(
A.. 0. Miller and others asked that tho ro
iiscipline bo amended bo aa to forbid fr
:he signing of petitions for saloon gi
licenses by members. Tho subject was
referred to the Committee on Temperince.

As "reform theatre" and "legitimate n:
Irarna" had a pernicous effect upon the 111
minds of the young, especially when r|
ised by tho minister of tho church, the "
esolution was met with Btrong opposi- ?
;ion at first, but was finally adopted by a
arge majority. This matter being de:ided,
another was brought up at once,
which led to a long discussion, and ef- 111
recta the entire laity of the church. F
Rev. D. O. Kellv, of Gallatin, Tenn., !u
ntroduced a resolution to make laymen 111
jligible for service on all committees. [a
There was a question as to the right of ^
aymen to sit upon either tho Commit- sa
,ee on Episcopacy or the Committee on
Appeals.
Rev. Ethelbert Philpot proposed a Bubititute
provision for admission of lay- "
lieu to all committees save that of ap- m
)eala. Rev. Paul Whitehead talked for p
,ho laymen. The discussion then closed CI
or the day, and the conferenco ad- tl
ourned, but it will be continued to- b

Tlie ltellglim of the Future*
Chicago, May 8.?The concluding
lession of tho Western Unitarian Con- ^
erence was held this afternoon. Mr. m
Lloyd referred to the great change ta
vrought in the condition of the London n(
lock laborers by the agitation a few tb
nonths ago led by the Socialist John d?
Burns. He said that before the success- w>
ul strike, so intelligently conducted by
Burns, the dock laborers had been treat- co
td more like cattle than human beings. rit
luch a thing as auy consideration of bi
heir rights as individuals was never m
leard of. Burns' agitation showed to w>
he English people and the civilized in
forld their condition. It aroused pubiic
iympathy,and tho church in the perion
of Cardinal Manning, took hold of
lie matter and made tlie dock laborer bj
i man. It was within tho power and p
ilearly within the province of church to r,
)ring about the amelioration the con- '
lition of the laboring men throughout i
he world. The church should move in
he inattor with the same intelligence u
ihown by the Cardinal. Humanitarian
nterests should and would be the religon
of the future.

The coal operators here say the idea of an

Jiculous. The men are paid by the pj-i

Baltimore, May 8.?Talk of Boverinp
0 connection between the Baltimore
d Ohio Compauy and the city and
ate governments, by a sale of the rail'
ad's securities in the public funds, has
en talked of for a year in financial
rcles.
All parties concerned appeared wil>gto
the accomplishment of that end,
,(l at Annapolis last winter legislation
tho same direction was accomplished.
Inside of the Baltimore & Ohio there
a party who want to see that stock in
her hands and to have an end of the
vided interests represented in the
>ard of Directors. Now there is under)od
to be a good prospect of the acmplishment
of the object.sought.
3w railroad people are understood to
1 figuring for an iuterest in the Baltiore
&0hio property, and as one of the
imary movements their purchase of
e 32,500 shares of tho common stock
ild by the city, the 1,500 shares held
tho Johns HopkinB University, and
e holding of thu State in other securi a
of tho company are discussed.
ii trie ileal ib accomplished it is under>od
that new railroad connections will
added to the Baltimore & Ohio syan,
in the direction of the South. It is
t proposed, as stated, to make any
ange in the administration of the coinny,
but to bring about new alliances,
tend the lines into other territory,
d have largo capital put iuto the Bal ore
& Ohio enterprises. As yet the
oject is only in the negotiating stages,
t there are evidences that there
a spirit of earnestness in the negotiains.
Baltimore has for years aspired
er more direct connections eouthward,
d the tendency of things has been to
ike tho Baltimore & Ohio look for
ends across the l'otomac.
Ever since the Robert Garrett deal

II through there has been a friendlisa
exhibited between tho Baltimore
,d Ohio and Richmond and Danvillo
mpanies. Whether that friendliness
to ripen into a connecting alliance is

Mrs. Sago's recital was highly dramatic
and pathetic. Sho testilied that she first
met the prisoner in August, 1881; that
1 soon after ho commenced paying regular
' and devoted attention to her, and otlered
[ to marry her, if her 2-year-old boy could
be disposed of. She agreed to bind the
i child out or to have so mo one adopt it,
, but to this Sage objected, saying that
' anyone who took it would tire of it, and
send it back.
" Sage continued to importune her to
! make way with the child, and finally,
on Sunday, June 18,1882, sho took the
| child in her arms, curried it a mile across
' the fields, threw it into the creek, covered
her face with her hands ami I
* away. She und Sago were married the
3 following evening and wero arreBted on
' the following Thursday.
J The witnsss was sharply croHS-exam?
ined, but without impairing the force
* of her testimony through the trying or0
deal.

London, May 8.?Tho assertion of tho
Hamburger Correspondent that imperial
couriers havo been kept busy during tho
last few days carrying lottero between
Princo Bismarck aud tho Kaiser, is Rtnorally,
recoived with incredulity.
If, Jiowover, tho statement bo truo, it is

strict refcrcnco to tho statements the ex1
Chancellor is alleged to have madocoLcerning
his retirement, which haveri1

I It io uwuined that tho Kaiser has demanded
an explanation ol tho .allegations
that ho employed persons to intrigue
against liiemarck with a view of
getting rid of him, together with many
other statements uncomplimentary to
tho Emperor, which lmvo found their
way into the newspapers as utterances
of tho ex-Chancellor. The frequent
interchange of communications iuduccH
tho suspicion on the part of believers in
this theory that the ex-Chancellor in
having a hard timo to convince tho
Kaiser of his innocence in the matter of
circulating tho statements; otherwise lie
is endeavoring to show justification for

Drought in Culm.
Havana, May H.-?The drought continuea
throughout Cuba. Lately strong
winds have been blowing. Many firea
continue to bo reported, not only on
cane fields, but also on cattle breeding
pastures and farms, and even in ttie

lees from lire. In many localities thoponds
and brookshavo completely dried
up, and the water in tho rivers has fallen
considerably. Tho damage to buildings
