; 12 OOBPOBATIOI OUTRAGES. (Continued from page 1.) Genaral Tarsney was the personal r'pressnUtive of the govornor during the police board troubles when the railitia were opposite the City hall Hia undaunted bearing at that time antag onized the police and their sympathizers, end it was freely stated that if shooting commenced he would be the first man to fall While the militia was in the field at Cripple Creek, he was again the direct representative of the governor, through whom orders were transmitted to General Brooks. In this service he found himself opposed once mora to many of the men aligned against him at the City hall. The American Protective association was bitter in its threats against General Tarsney. INDIGNANT MINERS. Cripple Creek, Colo., June 23. The outrage is condemned by everyone in Cripple Creek. The militiamen are highly indignant, and the miners are wild with rage. The miner's say that there are more anarchists in Colorado Springs than there ever were on Bull Hill, but they take saliaf action in the fact that the true character of the men who came here, representing law and order, has been proven by themselves. If the sheriff does not bring the per petrators to light, there is a probability that the miners will take some peace able measures to do so. Nearing the End. Washington, June 24. There is little doubt in any quarter that the present week will see the end of the tariff de bate in the senate. Estimates as to the time when the final vote shall be reached ranged from Tuesday until Saturday, but a majority of the senate has ex pressed the opinion the vote will be taken on Wednesday or Thursday. With the thermometer ranging from 95 to 90, as it did on Saturday and to-day, senators find every reason for dispatch ing the business as soon as possible. In view of this fact Senator Harris still thinks it possible to conclude the work on the bill Thursday night. To do this, however, means very rapid work, com paratively few speeches and the possible postponement of important items,such as reciprocity, until the conference report shall be made. Senator Allison, who has long exper ience with the tariff and appropriation bills and otherllegislation affecting diver uifiad bterests,ex presses opinion the sen ate will not dispose of the bill in commit ted of the whole before Tuesday night, and that the four remaining days of the wsek will be necessary to finish the work on the bill in the senate. lie also thinks it probable there will be some general rpsaches by those who, finding that the debate is coming to a close, will want to be heard upon soma point of interest to them or their people. The more important questions yet to De disposed in committee are: The re mainder of the income tax; the whisky and spirit tax; the tobacco tax; Senator Teller's retaliation diamond amendment; the epun silk yarn question, which was passed ovor when the silk schedule was under consideration, and the reciprocity question, if it be not postponed, and in the senate, sugar and wool aa well as others. If the final vote on the tariff la reached before Saturday, the appropria tion bills which have been reported, will be immediately taken up, but in what crdsr has not been determined. Railway pooling is expected to be the rrsia subject for discussion before the I ?-;.?3 t c:!-? r-.-?VT7itattii feS- end taxation of greenbacks aa incidental questions. Speaker Crisp's illness during the past week has prevented the arrangement of an exact program, but Representative Catchings, of the rules committee, said to-day these bills mentioned were likely to occupy the week, although no order of precedence for them had baen ar ranged. The pooling bill is regarded aa one of the moat important measures before congress. It is a revision of the inter state commerce law, so aa to permit rail ways to pool their earnings under cer tain restrictions. The bill also over comes the impotency of the interstate commerce commission, due to its inabil ity to compel witnesses to testify. The pooling provision is strongly urged by the railroads, and is indorsed by the in terstate commerce commission and by all state railway commissioners, except that of Minnesota. It is said the anti-pooling section of the present law has led to fraud among shippers, and to secret rate-cutting among roads. The bill provides that the pooling contract must first be sub mitted to and approved by the inter state commerce commission. Pity a Poor President. Washington, June 23.-Senator Harris, having received assurances that not ex ceeding two days more would be re quired for debate on the tariff bill, con sented to an early adjournment of the senate this afternoon. Prior to adjournment Mr. Hill gratified his spite against the president. In mock anxiety he begged the committee not to subject the president's salary to the operation of the income-tax. The presi dent, he said, was a citizen of his own state of New York and while he ad mitted that he did not propose the ex emption by request and with authority he yet felt that he ought to do it. Mr. Vest responded with an acuteness which did not leave Hill unprioked. Thinly veiling the reference to Hill's presidential aspirations, ha said that inasmuch aa many, many years would pass before a New Yorker would again have the presidency, the sugges tion would be accepted. The acceptance of his proposition that the president's salary be excepted and Vest's scarcely disguised taunt nettled Hill, and he blurted out that if the income-tax remained in the bill, not only no democrat of New York but no demo crat of any state for years to come could be elected president. The feeling between Vest and Hill has been one of hostility for some weeks. All persona the country over whose in come exceeds $3,000 a year and is less than $4,000 have this hostility to thank, for their exemption from the income-tax. It was the f ull purpoes of the senate to lower the exemption limit from $4,000 to $3,000. Taking advantage of the an nouncement of that purpose in open sen ate, Hill lata yesterday afternoon in his tilt with Harris boasted of the reduction as his own work. That was more than Vest and his associates could endure. I The amendment embodying the reduc tion was accordingly withdrawn, and when Hill moved that the reduction be made ha was overwhelmingly defeated and hia boast cast back upon him dis credited. President Carnot Assassinated. Lyons, June 25. Marie Francois Sadi Carnot was assassinated last night by an Italian named Cesure Giovanni Santo, who, under the pretext of presenting a petition sprang upon the steps of the I rr -Mcsft lsaiau, vrbib he ttss fco&j driven to the theater, and stabbed him near the heart, inflicting a wound from which he died at 12:45 o'clock this, Mon day, morning. The president was visiting Lyons in connection with the international exhi bition. Upon his arrival here he was tendered a reception at the prefecture, after which he visited the exhibition. After spending some time at the exhibi tion he proceeded to the Palais da Com merce, where a banquet was given in hia honor. At 0:25 o'clock to-night President Carnot started for the theater, where a gala performance was to be given be cause of his presence in the city. Sev eral carriages were in the procession, the first one being rocupied by the president. Mr. Carnot's c- inage was "driven slowly along in front of the Palais dej Com merce, and then turned into Rue de la Republique, still following the facade of the palace. When halfway down the street, which was lined with enthusiaatio crowds of people who were loudly cheering, a man rushed out of the crowd and spang upon the step of the president's landau. Just at this moment M. Carnot was waving his right hand and saluting with his hat in his left hand in response to the ova tion that was being given him by the crowd. The people close up to the car riage saw the man standing on the step had a knife in his hand. By the glare of the eleotrio lights they saw the bright blade gleam in the air, as the assassin's arm decended and then President Car not was seen to fall back in his seat, his face deathly pale. One of his hands was pressed to his heart, where the steel had entered the body. The assassin, who says he is 22 years old, givea'no reason for his crime. Dun's Prosperity. New York, June 22. R. G. Dun & C&'a weekly review of trade says: The week has been rich in promise, but poor in production. It was promised that exports of gold would decrease, but they have not It was promised that the end of the coal strike would bring immediately recovery of indus trials, but partial resumption of work discloses comparative scantiness of de mand for productions. Operations in wheat advanced the pri ce cents though western receipts were only 1,381,510 bushels, against 2,209,185 last year, and Atlantic exports only C55.931 bushels, against 2,502,003 last year. Corn advanced, but again receded with small exports and fairly large receipts. It wss confidently expected that the settlement of tariff rates on textiles by the senate would improve the manufac ture of textiles, but there is scaroely any evidence of such a result as yet, the large ealea of cottons being distinctly traceable to more seasonable weather and large retail sales and to farther con cessions by sellers. The stock of unsold print cloths at Providence, Fall River and Boston is over a million pieces, but the accumula tion continues. The orders for fall are limited and staples are irregular in prices. Wool is less active and rather weaker, with sales about equal to half a full consumption, 3,252,541 pounds, against 2,989,800 pounds for the same week last year and 5,413,550 in 1892. For three weeks of June, sales have been 8,879,124 pounds, against 16,933,650 in 1892. There is much disappointment that the partial termination of the coal strike does not promptly enlarge the demand for iron and steel products, which is evidently too narrow as yet to spit crar;h in- j Coxey for Congress. Astabula, 0., June 23. J. S. Coxey, the leader of the commonweal and nom inee for congrs b in the Eighteenth Ohio district, addressed a Populist con vention of several thousand people in North Park this city, yesterday after noon. Coxey came direct from his home at Massillon, where he arrived from Washington City Monday. He appears to have sufiered little from his twenty days' confinement for walking on the grass at the capitol. He was in good voice and talked for two hours, principally on his plan for money reform and good roads. He ad vocated the eight hour system, also as serting that no laboring man should re ceive less than $1.50. per, day, ndthat the government should own railroads telegraphs and mines. He says the government should pro vide work for every man and every man who would not work should not be al lowed to eat. At times he was quite humorous and was frequently inter rupted by applause. He will make an address in Philadelphia next Sunday. American Ball way Uulon. Chicago, June 21. The People's party and its principles were indorsed by the American Railway union convention to day, and by a unanimous rising vote the delegates pledged themselves and their constituents to support the party's can didates. This action was taken after a stirring speech by President Debs, and a set of resolutions was at once adopted with enthusiasm. The delegates also declared themselves unanimously in fa vor of the government ownership of rail roads. President W. R. Howard of the 'Long shoremen's union addressed the conven tion and pledged the aasistanse of the 'longshoremen in any trouble that may arise in this city. It is stated that so many delegates J have already received instructions from their constituents regarding the pro posed boycott of Pullman cars that it is assured. Talk About Ireland! Pomeroy, O., June 21. Fourteen families of union miners were evicted at Spillman, W. Va.t to-day, and their places in the mines taken by sixty Southern negroes. Eleven armed non union men are now working there, that being the only mine in operation. After the eviction, the miners were paid for their gardens and treated to several kegs of beer. A great mass meeting on velvet cush ions at Carnegie's musio hall, New York, June 1, was held to protest against the income tax. The call, as reported in the New York World, was signed by fift presidents of insurance companies, six teen presidents of savings banks, four teen presidents of trust companies, eighty wholesale dry goods firms, twenty-two wholesale jewelry, and so on down the list. These are the people who live by the sweet of other men's faces, and are not willing to bear any of the publio burden out of their booty. Th laboring element has all these on their backs. Coming Nation, June 23. The Topeka Journal says that the gold of the country is taking its regular summer vacation in Europe. Nearly every outgoing vessel takes a million or so. It will return in the fall, it is hoped, much improved by its outing and be ready to go to work. The people do not seem well pleased, however, with those aristocratic habits, and would much pre fer a money that would stay at homi all th tine. Atchison Caamplca, Juaa 22.
