A resolution olfcred In theiloiiso Monday
by Mr. Henry, (California), calling for the
appointment of a siss-lal committee to in

Fur Company, was based upon a charge
that the Company secured the exclusive
privilege to catch seals paying therefor
but Sfio.uoO a year, for twen
ty years, while a responsible company in
California offered at the time t liu
lease was made 2T2,rU() for the same privi
lege. Charges of gross favoritism hiiiI cor

profits of the company amount to from $3,
500,000 to $ 00O.OD0 a year, and that it costs
but $4 to lay down each scnl-skiu in Ixin
don, the average wholesale price for the
same being $.'!0. The company can catch
100,000 a year, and it Is alleged it frequent

express robber, could not stand the press
ure, and yesterday ho confessed and Impll
cated McFaddcn In the robbery. When tlie
latter heard of tlie action taken by bis
pal he made a desperate attempt to com
mit suicide, ami probably will not live.
Just before lieing transferred to jai
McFaddcn was given a good dinner. In
his cell in tho hold-over, realizing the des
perate position in which he was placed, lie
took a small, empty bottle that had coir
tallied medicine, and having Kwnded it into
fragments, he then swallowed the glass
with his food and waited for the end. On
the way into jail he fold Tiller what he had
done, but the express clerk would not be
lieve him. About four o'clock he was
taken ill, and the attention of the jail
guard was attracted to him. A physician
was summoned, ami emetics administered,
but the glass had passed from tho stomach
into the intestines, and could not be reached.
He is suffering intense agony, and physicians
pronounce Ins case almost hopeless. Three
thousand dollars in silver were recovered
yesterday in Kansas City, where they
had been slnped by liller tlie day
after tlie robbery. It was found in
the United Stales Express ollice, marked
"To be held until called for." The Chief-
of-I'olice said that SH'2,000 was still missing,
and that it was controlled by Tiller. Tho
latter says that McFadden went from here
to Chicago with tho proceeds of the robbery
two days after it was committed.

break in the levee at (Cohorts Island, near

acres of wheat, valued at $500,000. The
broken levee was one of the largest on the
island, being one hundred feet w ide at the
base, forty at the top, and 'ten feet high.
Heforo the break occurred the middle
section of the levee was cut in tlie hope of
relieving the cross-levee, but the w.iter
didn't run off fast enough to take off the
pressure. As the sudden heavy rush of
water swept over the iftlanu on Its way
toward the lower section, the immense
fields of tall grain disappeared from sight,
and tlie whole was transformed Into one
great lake. The inhabitants quickly hud
dled together what they could carry off in
wagons, seeking refuge on the lower sec
tion. Arrangements will be made to take
them ashore should the lower levee give
way. In the meantime every effort will be
made to strengthen it. Horses and cattle
stampeded in wild fright, breaking across
toward the dry ground of the lower portion.
