According to the provisions of a bill passed by the house of represen tatives, 8,000 acres, covering the site ' of the great battle of Shiloh, aro to be transformed into a national military park. There will bo few porsons in the North or South to cry this bill nay. Shiloh was one of the most des perate battles In the world's history, fought by Americans on both sides, as Runnymede was fought on both .sides by Englishmen. It was not as decisive as was Runnymede, nor yet .as the grand struggle at Gettysburg, still it was one which old comrades on both sides continue to talk over and dispute about. It will live in history as Chickamauga and Gettysburg live. The park will constitute a resort toward which the steps of students of hiatory will bend more and more as the years go by. The Bhlpmentof California fruit to the East for the season just closed was aboat 1,100 carloads consisting of cherries, apricots, plums, pears and grapes, the total selling for about 11,000,000. The amount realized was not so largo as the shippers expected, partly on account of the railroad strike in July, which loft a large quantity of fruit to spoil which would otherwise have been put on the mar ket, and partly because the genoral depression in business reduced Loth the consumption of fruit and the prices which have heretofore pre vailed. In spite of all drawbacks, however, the amount of fruit shipped ",;w"a8 greater than in any previous sea son and. the prices realized were so satisfactory to the growers that the business will be carried on next yoar on a stiil larger scalo tban evor. .

The spirit of the treaty in sists that as. sooii as a soldier is dis abled he is no longer a belligerant, but a neutral, and its provisions have always been faithfully, interpreted. The fact that Japan is a party to the treaty has doubtless helped tojnake the government of that country" anx ious to clear itself of any complicity in the cruelties that were practiced at Port Arthur, and it will doubtless yet be shown that the story has been much exaggerated.

Speaker Charles E. Lobdell, ono of Mr. Burton's most ardent supporters, gained the floor and moved to make Baker's nomination unanimous. Rep resentatives Frank Grimes of Graham and F. M.

Tho Massachusetts Senator Introduces Some Freeh Hawaiian Resolution. Washington, Jan. 22. Minister Thurston of Hawaii, occupied a front seat in the diplomatic gallery of the senate when the session Opened to-day. ' Mr. Lodge speedily brought for ward the Hawaiian question by pre senting a resolution declaring that tne senate cordially approved oi me dispatch of a war ship to the Sand wich islands Saturday and was of the opinion that an American man-of-war Bhould be kept at Honolulu, mas prompt measures should be taken to construct or promote tne construction of a submarine cable from San Fran cisco to Honolulu and that no part of the rights and privileges secured to the United States and 'Hawaiian gov ernment should be abandoned or waived in order to enable any other government to secure a foothold or lease upon any part of the Hawaiian islands; and that in the judgment of the senate immediate steps should be taken to secure the possession of the Sandwich islands by their annexation to the United 'States.

Secretary Carlisle Yropose a Schema to Increase the Silver Certificates. Washington, Jan. 22. At the meet ing of the house appropriations com mittee to-day Secretary Carlisle took part at the request of Chairman Sayers. The conference was over the adoption of a policy by which the secretary hopes to put into cir culation an increased volume ol sil ver certificates of small denomina tions in place of treasury notes. The committee decided to strike irom tne sundry civil bill a stipulation that for several years has been added to the item providing for printing treasury notes to replace those received at the treasury. Secretary Carlisle stated that it was his desire to get more silver cer tificates for the small denominations into the hands of the people, but ex plained that other notes occupied the field and crowded them out Several members of the committee led the discussion from the question at issue into the byways of finance. Once Representative Sibley of Penn sylvania asked the secretary what objection there would be to a system of redeming notes in gold and silver at the option of the secretary of the treasury instead of the holder. "If the policy had been inauguated at the beginning of resumption," an swered the secretary, vit would have worked beneficially and no trouble would have arisin from it. But my predecessors have followed the policy of redeeming in gold or silver at the option of the holders of the paper, and any secretary who tried to change this policy and force silver on a man who wanted gold, or visa versa, particularly at such a critical period as we have been passing through, would have precipitated dis asterous results," JUDGE RICKS'S DEFENSE.

HUMOUS SKIRMISHES TIKE PLACE, Nothing Very Serious Hal Tet Occurred Both Side as Determined as Ever Many Cars Wrecked and tho Striker and Their Sympathis er Charged With Fixed s Bayonet by Soldier. Brooklyn, N. Y., Jan. 22. Last night Mayor Schieren ' decided that the police and 3,000. militia then on duty were not sufficient to hold the street railway strikers and their sym pathizers in check and prevent dis turbances, and telegraphed to Gov-, ernor Morton at Albany. Tne gov ernor had been warned and at a late hour held a consultation with Ad jutant General McAlpine and Assist ant Adjutant General Phister, and at its close telegraphed orders to Gen era! Fitzgerald, commanding the First brigade of the National guard, composed of 4,700 militiamen of New York city of every branch of. the ser vice, to call his men together and pre pare to come here this morning. General Fitzgerald obeyed orders at once and this morning 4,600 New York city militia marched across the bridge and reported for duty here. The troops with the assistance of the police, are expected to guard the property of the surface railways, which form a meshwork of rails and wires throughout this city of about 1,000,000 inhabitants. The refusal of the companies to promise reinstatement of strikers when tho latter had indicated a will ingness to call the fight off upon that one condition, has had the effect of making many of those hitherto peace ably disposed desperate and ready to participate in acts of violence directed against the property of the corpora tions. Acts of violence in the supposed in terest of the strikers have been con tinuous in one part of the city or another for the last forty-eight hours. Curing last night trolley wires were cut in all directions, those who per formed the work escaping detection. Abont 8 o'clock a mob numbering 1,000 or more stoned a Sumner avenue car near Broadway and Flushing avenue. As Captain Louis Wendell's battery was proceeding u Broadway to Hal sey street under scort of the Sixty ninth battalion, at the corner of Hal scy street and Broadway a mob of 1,000 men guyed and jeered the mili tia and some few stones were thrown. The crowd was so great that Major Duffy ordered a charge, and his sol diers, with fixed bayonets, charged on the mob and dispersed it Quite a number of men were trampled under foot and some slightly wounded by bayonets. Twenty thousand men and boys hang about the stations where the military are posted and annoy the soldiers by jeering and pelting them with stones. All night the pickets were subjected to these attacks and missiles flew aroundthem from the darkness, but they could not retaliate. The Brooklyn Heights Railroad company tried to run some cars on the Fulton street line this morning, but had to abandon the attempt, the motormen being forced by threats to leave their cars. All the cars were stoned and the windows broken and their motor boxes rendered useless. The company ran some cars on the Court street and Putnam avenue lines. They were not molested. A mob at the Hal sey street depot had a scrimmage with the militia early to-day. A man was noticed sneaking to the rear of the barn. He was halted by the pickets and refused to give any explanation of his actions. When the soldiers turned him back into the crowd they wero met by a volley of Btones. Many of the men received bad bruises, but before they could make a charge on the mob it had dispersed. The men hanging about the depots are angry and. threaten to burn the barns simultaneously if the alleged wrongs of the strikers are not reme died to-day. At 12:15 p. m. two cars of the Brook lyn Heights railroad reached East New York with forty new men. They were met at Simpkins avenue by Sergeant Reimalsof the Third mount ed squad ' and a troop of policeman, Whosecorted tne cars w tneir ucsu- nation. Innumerable scrimmages between the militia and strikers occurred dur ing the. day but none resulted seriously-. Oh eight lines ordinarily running eo8 cars there are 111 cars being run to-day with more or less regularity. There are many more lines upon which there has been no effort to re sume traffic. .

Tho Colon Paclflo Main Line Sequestra' ted by Order of Court. St. Louis, Ma, Jan. 26. United States Circuit Judge Walker H. San born to-day handed down his docision upon the application of F. Gordon Dexter and Oliver Ames, second trustee for the first mortgage bond holders of the Union-Paeiflorailway-company, for separate receivers for the portion of the Union Pacific sys tem covered by the first mortgage. The decision, or order, covers seven closely typewritten pages, and in effect grants the application. Tho re ceivers appointed are tho same as those now In charge ol the entire system S. H. H. Clark, Oliver W. Mink, E. Ellery Anderson, John W. Doane and Frederick R. Coudert. The usual thirty days for filing bond and ninety days for tiling their nrst re port are allowed to the receivers. The order, which embraces twelve clauses, provides that funds already earned by the road shall be used by the receivers to settle debts and just claims under the present receiver ship. In addition the court reserves the right to order that any deficiency in such funds shall be made up from future earnings under the separate receivership. r In effect the decision simply se-. questers the old main line from the rest of the system only so far as ac counts are concerned, so' that the property covered by the first mortgage shall be within easy reach of the mortgagees.

Personal i Effect Found on tho Body Late Criminal Mew. i . '. ' O'Neill, Neb., Jan. 23. The body of Barrett Scott, Holt county's de faulting treaaurer, who was lynched December 31, was found in Niobrara river near midnight A rope was around his neck and he had been hanged. The coroner's , jury , found ' that Scott had been hanged , and that George Mullihan, Moses Elliott and Mert Roy, those now. under arrest, and other . Holt county, citizens com posed tho mob. '!,. . . " The ice- was cut where the trail of the lynchers bad been followed. The body was lying in seven feet of water and only a short distance from the bank. The body bore evidence that the victim was. dead when cast into the river. ' Around his neck was a piece of rope about three feet long, a noose around ' the neek being tied in true hangman's style. The. other end showed evidence of having been cut, showing that Scott had been, hung until he was dead, and then cut down and cast into the river. The body was minus a coat, but his watch, and chain and other jewelry, which was on his person the night, of the tragedy, were still there. The face of the deceased con firms the truth of the story of Mrs. Scott to the effect that in the fusi lade which preceded her husband's capture he was slightly wounded on the side of the face. The crime for which Barrett Scott paid with his life on New Year's day of this year, was the embezzlement of 870,000 of the funds of Holt county and the subse quent wrecking of the Holt county bank, practically impoverishing near ly all of the farmers and business men in Holt. The amounts stolen from these confiding people are vari ously estimated, but aggregate about $160,000. MURDERED BY BOBBERS.
