THE Home Savings Bank Co. Wellington, O. takes a firm stand. Secretary Olney Talks Plainly to Lord Salisbury. Pistol for a General Arbitration Treaty Fall of Fruition Ilecante of Prepoi , terous Claims by England In t.,., the Matter of the Veu- suelau lioundary Dispute, Waphi!gton, July 17. The efforts of the United Stutes and Grout Britain to agree upon a general arbitration treaty for the settlement of all controversies through the establishment of a permanent tribunal, as well an tho prog ress of diplomatic negotiations towards solving the Venezuelan problt'"j, aro set forth In 13 communications mude public by the Htate de partment last night while they constitute tho nrst authoritative disclosures upon these great questions since President Cleveland's fumous Chrlstmastldc message to congress, It will bo found that previous reports of the negotiations between the two governments have accurately outlined the course of events. Little substantial progress towards a gener al arbitration treaty Is disclosed by the docu ments. An outline In part of the proposed pro cedure Is laid down and the views of tho two governments are so explicitly stated that fu ture discussion may be confined townrds nar rowing the few divergencies of method. Tho further fact is made appurent that the United States has not relaxed its vlgilunce in demand ing a just settlement of the Venezuelan bound ary question and has rejected the British pro posal! for arbitrating that dispute under terms involving the surrender of uny part of Venez uela's claims. The correspondence oprms with a letter from Ambassador Bayard to Lord Salisbury, dated February US, lbV6. proposing an entrance forth with upon negotiations concerning the Guiunl an boundary quostion at Washington between tho British nmbassador and the secretary of slate. Mr. Buyartl added thatVecrctnty Olney fr'cutly desired that there should bo pro pounded a clear dallnltlon of the "settlements" by individuals In the disputei territory, which it was understood Great Britain wished ex cluded from the propesed arbitration. Lord Salisbury, In reply, on March 3, said his government readily concurred in tho sugges tion and had sent Instructions to Sir Julian Paunccfotc directing him to discuss the ques tion either with the Venezuelan representa tive or tho United States acting as tho friend of Venezuela. Ho hud asked tho secretary of stato of the colonies for the precise meaning attached to the word "settlements-'' Lord Salisbury's Instructions to Sir Julian Pauncefote, dated March 5. form the third doc ument and arc devoted to the system for gen eral international arbitration, negotiations for the establishment of which had been ruptured by Secretary Gresham's deuth. Lord Salis bury submits a draft of a treaty for arbitra tion which provides that her Britannic majesty and the president of tho United States shall each appoint two or more permanent judicial officers for tho purposes of tho treaty and on the appearance of any difference between the two powers which In the judgment of cither of them cannot be settled by negotiation, each of them shall designate one of the said officers as arbitrator, and tho two arbitrators shall hoar and determine any matter referred to them In accordance with tho'.rcaty. Before entering on such arbitration the arbi trators shall solect an umpire by whom any question upon which they disagree, whether Interlocutory or final, shall be decided. The decision of such umpire upon any inter locutory question shall be binding upon the ar bitrators. The determination of the arbitra tors, or, If they disagree, the decision of tlio umpire, shall be the award upon the matter re ferred. All pecuniary claims amounting to not more than 100.000 for damages or Indemnity all questions affecting diplomatic or consular privileges, alleged rights of fishery, access, navigation or commercial privilege, and ull questions referred by special agreement be' tween the two parties shall be referred to ar bitration and tho decision shall be final. In cases of questions of fact or of interna tional law Involving territory or territorial rights, sovereignty or Jurisdiction of claims in volvlng more than i'lOO.OJO the decision of the board of arbitration shall bo subject to review within three months by a court composed of. three Judges of the supremo court of Great Britain and three judges of the supreme court of the United States, ond If this court shall de termine by a majority of not less than live to one on any issue tho award shall be final, but In default of such determination it shall not bo valid. If no protest is entered by either power ugainst the award within the time limited, it shnll be llnul. Any difference which In the judgment of either power materially affects its hoi.or or the integrity of its territory shall not he referred to arbitration under tho treaty except by spe cial agrecmont, but any difference whatever, by agreement botween the two powers, may be reforred for decision by arbitration with tho stipulation that unless accepted by both powers the docislou shall not be valid. . In the Instructions Sir Julian is U.M that all matters In dispute cannot ho referred to arbi tration: that neither government is willing to accept urbltratlen upon Issuas involving no tional honor or integrity, but within this wide region tho United States desires to o further than Great Britain. Secretary Olney in reply April JU declares thut Lord Salisbury's proposals are welcomed with the keenest appreciation of their value and of the enlightened spirit which ultimate them. But by tho direction of the president he proposes as a substitute Rn amendment that arbitration shall also bo obligatory in respect of all questions now pending or hereafter aris ing Involving territorial rights, boundaries, sovereignty, or Jurisdiction, or uny pecuniary claim or group of claims aggregating a sum larger than 100.090 and In respect of all con troversies not In this treaty specially de scribed. Provided, however, that either con gress or parliament may withdraw the same from tho operations of this treaty, or if con gress or parliament be not in sessioE. any mat ters in dispute slinll not be submitted to arbi tration until these bodies have had opportunity to take action thereon. In tho case of controversies the award shall be final If concurred In by all the Arbitrators. If assented to by a majority only the award shall be final, unless one of the parties within three months of its promulgation shall protest In writing to tho other that tho award Is er roneous in respect of Issue of fnet or low. In every such rase the award shall be reviewed by a court composed of three supreme judges of Great Britain and the United States, who shall agree upon three Impartial jurists to be added to said court In case they shall be equally divided upon the award to be made. The award of tho court so constituted, whether rendered unanimously or by a majority vote, shall be fin ill. Theso arguments, Secretary Olney argues, make all disputes arbitrable and place where tt belongs In congress and parliament tho right and power to decide whether they are ar bitrable or demand assertion by force of arms. By the schemo as amended the controversy is finally ondod, whereas, under the original prop osition there would be an award only in tlie rare cuses In which the six appellate arbiters favored it, either unanimously or by a major ity of five to one. Mr. Olney thinks such ar rangements would be dangerous. In all cases in which tho arbitrators were equally divided or stood four to two, publlo feeling in each country would be aroused by the protracted proceedings and the chances of a peaceful out come would be prejudiced rather than pro moted. It Is also pointed out that tho Unltod States, having no European alliances, has more to fear than Great Britain from the bias of for eign Judges. Secretary Olney finally oontends thut to Insist upon an arbitration scheme so constructed that miscarriages of .Justice can never occur Is to Insist upon the unattainable, and Is equivalent to s relinquishment alto gether of the effort In behalf of a general system of lntenatlonal arbitration. In conclusion Secretary Olney says: It only remains to observe that If the amendments should prove acceptable, no reason Is per ceived why the pending Venezuelan boundary dispute should not be brought within the treaty by express words of Inclusion. If, however, no tteaty for general arbitration can be now ex pwjted It oonnot be Improper to add that the t Venezuelan boundary d.spute seems to otter a. rood opportunity for one of those tentative ex periments at arbitration which, as Lord Salis bury Justly Intimates, would be of decided ad vantage as tending to Indicate the lines upon ' which a scheme for general arbitration can be Judiciously drawn. Sir Julian Panncefote on June 1 had a con ference with Secretary Olney regarding the Venezuelan controversy and two days Inter sent the secretary the Instructions from Lord Salisbury upon which his visit had bcon based. In theRe, under dute of May t, the British premier forosees tho possibility of failure in the attempt to ugro j on the general arbitration system and proposes settlement of the Vene zuelan dispute. A commission consisting of four members, two to be British subjects and two citizens of the United States, Is proposed to report upon the fucts which affect the rights of Spain and Holland at the dute of Great Britain's acquisition of British Guiana. Upon the report of such commission It Is stlpuloted that Grout Britain and Venezuela shall endeavor to agree on a boundary, but, falling in this, a tribunal was to be appointed, one British, ono Venezuclun und they to select a third who should tlx the line of boundary; but with a proviso that It should not include as Venezuelan territory uny territory which was occupied by British colonists on or before Jan uary 1, 189.'. or as territory of Groat Britain any occupied by Venezuelans at thesamo time. Mr. Olney, on July t i. declared that his gov ernment was unable to treat this proposul as well adapted to bring the dispute to a speedy conclusion or us giving duo recognition to tho just rights of tho parlies concerned Secretary Olney adds: Venezuela is not to bo stripped of ner rigmrui possessions bocause the British government him erroneously encouraged Its subjects to believe that such possessions were British, in out one possible contingency of that sort could Grout Britain have even a som blunee of plausibility. If Great Britain's as sertion of jurisdiction, on tho facts of which her subjects made settlements in territory sub sequently ascertained to be Venezuelan, oould be shown to have been In any way assented to or acquiesced In by Venei.ucla.the latter power might be held to be estoppel from setting up any title to such settlements, But the notorious facts of the caso are oil tho other way. Venezuela's protests uaalnst alleged British usurpation have been constant and emphatic, and have been enforced by all the means practicable for a weak power to cm ploy in its dealings with a strong one. even to tho rupture of diplomatic' relations. It would seem to be quite Impossible that Groat Britain should justify her asserted Jurisdiction over Venezuelan territory upon which British sub jects have settled In rellaneo upon such as sertionby pleading thut the assertion was bona fide, without full notice of whatever rights Vonezuela may provo to have. Secretary Olney declares that Lord Salis bury's proposals enn be mudo to meet tho re quirements of tho case only if amended along the following lines: The commission to ascer tain facts must reach a result and cunnot be come abortive and possibly mischievous. That commission should have powor to report upon all tho facts necessary to tho decision of the boundary controversy; Includlhg the facts per taining to tho occupation of the disputed terri tory by British subjects. A TASTE OF COLD STEEL. It Is Given to Rioters In Cleveland by Militiamen Many Acts of Violence Be cause of a Strike. Cleveland, July 18. Friday was another day of turmoil and violence in the vicinity of the Brown Hoisting works. The militia and police were busy all day. The members of the mob were in a vicious mood und when ever a lone soldier or policeman could be reached violence was attempted. The troops were constantly under arras from 3 p. m. and had great difficulty in clearing; the streets, two bayonet charges being1 made. Hut as soon as a charge "was ended the mob, which early in the afternoon numbered about 5,000, would flow back against the lines of 6teel like a wave of the sea and again begin to hoot, curse and hurl stones. When the workmen had been taken away in .the evening and the troops were returning to their quarters at the works, another rally was made by tho populace upon Company F. Again a charge was made and cold steel was driven home so that many of the riot ers had to be helped awav. At this time some one sent in a gen eral alarm to the police stations and every patrol wagon was soon dashing through the streets, causing the wild est rumors among the thousands, of people on their way home from work. There was no need of the police rein forcements and the crowd, which had been swelled to nearly 10,000, began to disperse. It looked then as if the troubles of tho day were at an end. but atJo'eltv-l an assault was made on a soldier who was passing along; Wlllson avenue. Ho fought desperately, as did also a po liceman who hurried to his aid. A squad of militia came to their rescue, but not before the officer hurl hwn beaten into inseusil dity. Again the ponce anti patrol wagons rushed to the scene and had nil thev ould dn tn force a passage through the angry mou. jusi now many strikers or sym pathizers were hurt is unoertain. Two, both severely stabbed by bayonets, are lying at the St. Clair Street hos pital. They are Thomas McGreevey and Thomas Garrity. l'rivate Watchman Omn Mnmhir who tried to protect a militiaman last nignt, was struck on the head with a brick and while lying on the ground was kicked and beaten so badly that he may die. Ho was only saved from instant death by a charge made by Company F. There were many women in the mob, and they were more bitter in their denunciation of the troops than the men. Several of them were Injured by bayonet thrusts. An exciting affray occurred in front of the Variety Iron works, near the Brown Hoisting Cos plant, Friday morning. A crowd of 30 workmen, sympathisers of the Brown Hoisting Co. strikers, attempted to mob and kill Patrolmen William btuenther and Ar thur Lacey. The patrolmen drew their revolvers and held the crowd at bay until a detail of militia arrived. Then the policemen arrested Richard Kennedy, the alleged leader of the mob, and with the militia escorted the prisoner to the Oregon street police station. About 2 o'clock Friday afternoon a mob attacked four soldiers stationed at the corner of Wlllson and Payne avenues. The bluocoats defended them selves from clubs and stones, and put the mob to flight with a bayonet charge. Three of the mob, men named Thorn ton, Keegan and Clark, jumped on a' Payne avenue ear. The militia fol lowed them, throwing all off and doing Thornton up quite badly. The police then arrested Thornton, Keegan and Clark. John Russell, aged abont (30, died at his home in the afternoon. He was the gatekeeper at the Brown works, lie was thrown off tho car by strikers the other day. He was badly Injured. A FRIGHTFUL ACCIDENT. Nearly a Score of Workmen Aro Drowned at CUveland. llot Death While Crowded Tog-ether Ic Boat on Their Way Home-All the Victims Were Ore Handlers and Mostly Foreigners. Czeveland, July 1". The most appalling disaster which has occurred in Cleveland except the viaduct horror last winter, when a loaded street car plunged 100 feet into the river, oc curred last night at 8 o'clock. While a flat-bottomed ferry boat loaded with between 40 and 50 laborers was cross ing the old river channel it was cap sized and all the men thrown into the channel and between 15 and 20 drowned, 14 bodies having already been taken from the water. Tho accident was due to a panic among the men on board. The boat was loaded so that the gunwale was only three inches above the water, and a passing tug made waves which came into the boat At once there was a rush to the other side and the boat went under and spilled the men out. They were all members of a gang of ore handlers ond were going to their homes. Tho scene in the river as de scribed by the men on a tug and tho steamer Langdon, which were passing, was ono of wild struggle for life. Mon grappled each other and went down in the fierce embrace. Lines and life preservers were thrown from both vessels and many were pulled aboard. Others of the un fortunates were rescued by small boats and some swam ashore. The life sav ing crew was summoned and the work of searching for bodies at once begun. Within a short time fourteen of the un fortunates were brought to shore and taken to the morgue for identification. Those who escaped scattered in every direction and it is uncertain just how many lives were lost, but 20 men are reported missing and the dragging of the channel is still in progress. ' The crowding of the boat was duo to the fact that tho ore gangs pay a cer tain amount per trip on the ferry and the more who got on, the less it cost tha passengers. The men mostly lived on Guajrc street and Selden avenue, which lead down to the docks, and tho scenes there were heartrending. Men, women End children rr.n about scream ing and praying, and the disorder which prevailed made it impossible to get intelligible stories from even those who were rescued. The men were all Germans and Poles and their families cannot speak English. .An immense crowd soon gathered on the banks of the river, watching the work of the boats conducting the search for bodies. Among tho specta tors was William llenlow, a pressman. Iu moving about he lost his footing, fell into the river and was drowned The work of identifying the corpses is proceeding slowly, owing to the bodies having been taken to various morgues. The undertakers almost came to blows in the mad rush to gain possession of the bodies, and the police had to inter fere in the interests of decency. Fol lowing are tho names of the bodies so far Identified: Charles Sproclte, married; leaves seven chil dren. William Sounders, married; leaves ono child. August Knrten, married Michael Lj nch. Fritz BarteM Charles Ger".,ich, married. Prokup, single. Charles Bohrmeistcr, married. Julius Erske, married. Chris Oehrcn married. Unknown mai' at Gallagher's morgue. Unknown man at Hcgan & Sharer's morguo. Charles Kraus. widower; leaves three chil dren. Edward Ryan, married. Among those rescued was Richard Martin, engineer of tho new steamer Sir Henry llcssemer, which was lying at the ore docks. When lie saw the boat was turning he jumped, bat was caught under the craft whtu it turned over and, working bis way underneath the boat, getting atr by rising in the overturned craft, he managed at last to dive clear of tko wreck und, swim ming to his own vessel, was hauled aboard. He was the only passenger on the boat who was cot an ore handler. AN ARMY OF BAPTISTS. It Is Well Represented In the International Convention of the Vouui; People's Union of that Church. MlLWAUKEK, Wis., July 17. The sixth international convention of the Baptist Younjf People's Union of America was called to ordor Thursday at the Exposition building with 0,000 people present. Several speeches of welcome were made. liev. Koteat, of Jlew Haven, Conn., delivered an elo quent address in rcspouse to the speeches of welcome, speal:ing on be half of tho board of managers of the International union. Ccn. Wilkins, of Chicago, read the annual report of the board of managers, which was in part as follows: The junior movement is attracting general attention and societies are be ing rapidly formed. It is impossible as yet to secure a satisfactory enrollment of local organizations, but there in rea son to believe that there are in the United States and Canada, a total of not less than 3,000 societies, with a membership of more than 400,000. There are about 1,500 junior societies in the number, with a membership of about 40,000.

Enormous Exports of the Yellow Metal Canse a Nlutnp I" Values of Stocks An other Bond In as Expected Banks tn Ibe Rescue ot ihj uoid Reserve. Nkw York, July 2L The sum of 83,380,000 in gold was withdrawn from the sub-treasury yesterday. Of this amount 83,030,000, consisting of 81,480, 000 in coin and 81,550,000 in bars, is for export to Europe on to-day's steamers. The remaining 8350,000, taken by Cana dian bankers, was for use hero. Extensive covering of short contracts steadied the stock market at intervals late in the day, but the feeble rallies invariably brought offerings of long stocks mid near 2 o clock prices in some cases were the lowest in years. The largo engagements of gold for to-day and tho increase in the number of ship pers created an uneasy feeling. There were indications of tho movement spreading and that Thursday's Euro pean steamers, unless all signs fail, will curry out round amounts of the metal. Burlington dropped to C3?f, the lowest in its history, while certain of the' industrials sold lower than in the panic last year. President Tappan, of the Gallatin national bank, late in the day secured pledges from New York banks to con tribute in the aggregate 815,000,000 in gold to tho United States treasury in exchange for legi.1 tenders. Kansas City. Mo., July 21. All Kansas City banks yesterday ceased issuing gold, either in exchange for bills as payment of checks or with drawals of deposits. Cashier Rule, of the Banlt of Commerce, who returned from St. Louis in the morning, said the banks there will take tho same action. The reason given by tho bank ers here for this move is that it was the evident intention of many deposi tors to withdraw their deposits in gold aud hoard the yellow metal in tho be lief that it will go to a premium. Wahiiixotox, July 21. Tho heavy gol I engagements for export in New York yes.erJay caused treasury offi cials to fear that more will follow be fore the week is ended. The treasury gold reserve at noon had been reduced to S'J0,7S7,(i:;.). In the absence of both the president and Secretary Carlisle from Washington, no expression of opinion can be obtained from them, but treasury otlicials who possess their confidence t'.o not hesitate to say that if necessary to maintain the gold re- S";:'V3 another uonu issue will be re sorted to. A FIEND IN PETTICOATS. I'ivo People Assaulted by a Woman with an Ax Father and Daughters Killed In Tholr lied. Huntimotox, W. Va., July 21. Six miles above here, at the mouth of Three-Mile creek, occurred ono of the most horrible murders ever known on the upper Ohio waters. Tho scene was on a shanty boat and the killed are: A. J. Call, aged 45; Nettie Call, his daugh ter, aged 24. Lottie Call, another daughter, is fatally injured and those in a critical condition are Grace Call, aged 11, and Otis Call, aged 13. Late Sunday night Call and his fam ily retired. Etta Robblns, aged 24, wan at their house and retired with one of the daughters. A little boy who was sleeping with the father makes the following statement: "At 3 o'clock Monday morning I was awakened by Etta Bobbins cutting my father with a double-bit ax. My sis ters, Lottie and Nettio, ran into our room and Miss Bobbins turned on them. Sho killed Nettie and cut Lottie several times, when Lottie leaped from the boat into the river. She then cut several of us children and then threw tho ax at Lottie, who was swimming to tho shore." The woman acknowledged the kill ing of A. J. Call, but denies killing tho others. Call's head was almost cut off and his heart was visible from a wound in his breast. The head of the girl killed was also almost cut off and her heart cut out. The children wcro cut in a dozen different places. A coroner's jury was impaneled. ' The verdict was that Etta Bobbins committed the mur ders. FORGERY AND BLUFF. Venezuela's Counsel Proves that England's Claim to Disputed Territory are Ilasvd t'pon Fraud. Washington, July 21. Venezuela's brief prepared by Counsel Storrow and presented yesterday to the Venezuelan commission as well as to the British counsel, is tho most important paper that has so far appeared in the case. Mr. Storrow demonstrates that there never has been any British sovereign ty in the disputed territory; that the Dutch never gained the slightest foot hold in tho Orinoco basin and there fore never transferred what did not exist to Great Britain and caps his ar guments by demonstrating that tho Schombnrgk line as held by Lord Sal isbury was a forgery perpetrated by the English government 20 years after Schomburgk's i.eath. Mr. Storrow says the British claim has confessedly no basis except occu pation, and tho rules of law applied then to the facts alleged not only give no support to the British attempt to extend the boundary, but are specifi cally fatal to it. It demolishes tho so called temporary posts in the Cuyuni basin and at Barina Point by showing that they were mere trading stations quickly destroyed by tho Spanish, who maintained sovereignty over the ro gion, and provos that the actual set tlements of the Dutch and Spanish were always separated by 150 miles of forest. Ex-Oov. ItansnU's Fnneral. Camuridok, Mass., July 21. The funeral services over the remains of ex-Gov. William E. Russell were held Monday.

The body was then taken to the City hall, where the remains lay in 6tate from 13 until 3 .o'clock and were viewed by thousands of people. The remains were then tak'in to Shepard Memorial church, whore it short service was held The burial was in the local cemetery. BOLTERS' MANIFESTO.

Hence with the success of Mr. McKinley we may look for a continued increase of the public debt, and the sale of bonds to maintain the pold siiimii.:d. That the condition of the country is not satis factory alladmll. The producers of wealth are not receiving fair und proper compt nsuUon for their li.lior. whethir in tield. factory or shop: Interest has Increased; lnlorls unemployed; discontent and distress prevail to an extent never before known In the history of the coun try, and no reason can be f mad for such an unhappy condition save in a vicious monetary system. Thoue who profess to deplore the present financial condition and oppose the free colmipc of silver are divided in opinion as to the cause of the present condition. Some de clare that Is because we have too much tariff: others that we have not enouph; while tho fact exists that every pold standard country in the world, whether It has a hiph or low tariff. Is now and has been ilurinp recent yenrs in the thtoes of a llmincial panic; and every silver standard country, compared with its forme condition. Is enjoying an Industrial develop nunt ar.d depree or prosperity hitherto un known in its history. While thus differing In opinion, they unite lu asserting that the pold stundard must be ir.iii'itained until fofeifm countries shall sipnify th' ir willing- rs . tha, the Ameriian people slu.ll e::e.Ti.,:. the ri.iits of free men and create u tiuaaeijl vste:a of their own.
