ITALIAN ANARCHISTS. back terror rious may to ment. pose They of days will don't they 'fliu the with that and Organized Band of Strikers Terrorizes a Town. PITCHED BATTLE WITH TROOPS. a Fight Near Carrara Fifty Are Report ed to Have Been Killed—Driven From the Town, the Anarchists Fortify Them selves Among the Rocks. Rome, Jan. 17,—A thousand workmen employed in the marble quarries at Massa struck work aud threatened to invade the town. As it was kuown that anarchist agitators bad been at work for some time past among the quarrymen, who are a des perate class of men and thoroughly famil with the use of explosives, the strike caused the greatest alarm at Massa, and them is no doubt that serious disorder would have resulted had it not been for the presence of the troops, who fixed bayonets charged upon the disorderly portions the mob, forcing them to retreat to the woods. Several of these bands who were thus compelled to seek refuge outside of the city were thoroughly armed, and it was re ported that they had made preparations to give the soldiers a warm reception should they be pursued to the hills. This display of force, however, did not prevent other mobs from stoning the bar racks of the troops and of the gendarmes, from booting the soldiers and from hurl ing rotten eggsand fruit at them. Finally the soldiers became so enraged that their officers were compelled to calm them to the extent of giving orders that volleys should be fired in the air. This had the necessary effect, for at the first volley the riotous quarrymen and their friends van ished, and the troops started in pursuit oi the armed bands who had been previously driven out of the city. Threaten to Blow Up the Town. This pursuit was rendered all the mors necessary as the riotous quarrymen and their friends had repeatedly threatened to return with a supply of dynamite with which to blow up the police mid military barracks, the municipal buildings and the residences of all those w'bo supported the government and the local authorities. In addition the rioters threatened to blow up the Fassola bridge, which, with all the railroad stations and the railroad tracks In the neighborhood of the disturbance, was strictly guarded by police and soldiers, who had orders to shoot to kill upon tho slight est evidence oi an attempt to cause a dyna mite explosion. At Massa as well as at Carrara there was period of terror tor tho inhabitants from nightfall until daylight, mid the vigilance the authorities was not relaxed for a mo ment. All the inhabitants who bad valuables secreted them, ana a number of them man aged to obtain conveyances aud fled from the disturbed district with all their porta ble belongings. Tho government is taking every possible step to suppress the disorder, but the some what conciliatory action of tho authorities seems to encourage rather than dishearten the rioters. The anarchists are said to have taken up strong positions behind rocks aud other points of vantage in tho hills and to have made a desperate resistance to the troops, but it is reported that they were finally de feated and fled, leaving a number of dead aud wounded upon the field. Fuelled Battle Fought. The most sensational news is being wired here from Carrara. The greatest excite ment is said to prevail among the inhabit ants, wbo are terrified by the sounds of long and tierce firing in the hills near To ratia, where a band of from 600 to 1,000 an archists are report«! to be fighting a pitch ed battle with a force of infantry and gendarmes sent to hunt them down. As a result of the repeated disorder at Massa, Carrara and in the neighborhood of these two cities, it is judged that the loss of life must have been great, as the in fantry, according to reports, has been fir ing volley after volley at the anarchists. Later dispatches say that the number of killed during the fight between the mili tary and the armed baud of anarchists which sought refuge in the hills near Mas sa is not so great as the people of Massa at first reported. The official advices state that only eight of the anarchists were kill ed and that only from 40 to 50 were wound ed. These figures, however, it should lie stated, are the figures given out by the government authorities, and the people of Massa claim that at least &0 of the quarry men were shot during the engagement. During the fighting the garrison barred the highways in order to prevent the entry of the anarchists into the town. It now transpires that an armed baud of anarchists gathered early in the morning at Torana aud awoke the inhabitants by soundiug the tocsin. When the alarmed inhabitants rushed from their houses, fear ing a terrible conflagration or something uf that description, the anarchists overran the village mentioned aud compelled the people to deliver up all the anus aud am munition which they had in their posses sion. The anarchists then secured all the wine and spirits procurable and prepared to march upon Carrara. The government officials announce that thry control the situation and that they have a sufficient force at their command to suppress any rising which the anarchists may be able to organize.

DOINGS AT WASHINGTON Hawaiian Matters Persistently Bob Up In the Senate. PROGRESS OF THE TARIFF DEBATE. The Republican« Make Another Tain At tempt to Have Their Amendments Con sidered— Senator Gray Mentioned For tho Supremo Bench. Washington, Jan. 17.—The Hrfwailau controversy was «gain brought to the at tention of the senate, and there was a hall hour's spirited discussion between Sena tors Hoar, Gray and Daniels. The presi dent's message communicating the recent diplomatic correspondence afforded Sena tor Hoar an opportunity to speak on the matter, and he allowed by quoting from the Hawaiian constitution that tho queen, lier recent protest that sho could not promise amnesty to tho members of tho provisional government, was «Ally confin ing herself to tho limitations of the con stitution, which does not confer on the crown such absolute right of granting amnesty, but requires that pardon can be granteil only by tho concurrence of the cabinet and other constitutional officers. Senators Gray of Delaware and Daniels of Virginia made some pertinent interrup tions and threw upon Minister Stevens and his initiative actions all tho responsibility fur whatever irregular methods of pro cedure bad necessarily grown out of the Hawaiian imbroglio. Tho speech of Senator Gnlliuger of New Hampshire on the tariff question was at tentively listened to by his colleagues. The bill to repeal the federal elections law com ing up in regular order, Senator Palmer of Illinois opened tho discussion in an argu ment in favor of the bill. Slow Work on tho Tariff Hill. Very little progress was made with the amendments to the tariff bill. The Re publicans, under the leadership of Mr. Bur rows, made another struggle to secure the right to offer amendments alternately with Mr. Wilson, but as on 'Monday the chair man held, in view of 1 Lg precedent of pro cedure when the McKiuTJ-y bill was u inlet consideration, that Mr. Wilson, on behalt of the majority of the committee, was en titled to perfect the bill before It was thrown open to miscellaneous amendment. Several minor amendments were agreed to, the most important living that to in crease the duty on condensed milk to i cents a pound. Almost the entire afternoon was spent In discussing the date upon which free wool mid the corresponding reduction on wool should go Into effect. No couclusiou was reached. The closing day of the tariff debate prom ises to witness a brilliant display of oratory. Speaker Crisp has decided to take part and with Mr. Wilson will close tho debate fur the Democrats. Speaker Ket-U will close the debate for the Republicans. Supreme Reach Vacancy. Washington, Jan. 17.—When Senator Gray's attention was called to the fact that his name was being canvassed to some extent In connection with the appoint ment to the supreme liench to fill the seat for which Mr. Horn blower was rejected by the senate, he merely smiled and said it had been several years since ho had enter tained any ambition in that direction. Not withstanding this attitude on the part of Senator Gray, his nahie was mentioned In connection with tho office in the talk heard upon the subject about tho cnpitol during the day much more frequently than that of any other man available for the office. The fact was recall«! that President Cleveland had seriously and very favorably considered Senator Gray's name for tho chief justiceship when Judge Fuller was appointed. The fact tiiat the governor and the legislature of Delaware were both Dem ocratic is cited when the question of polit ical expediency is raised. It is suggested that the president may go outside of New »ork n view of t'he oppo sition of the senators from that state, and that in going outside of the state be might also go a few miles out of the circuit and take Senator Gray. If the choice should not fall upon him mid the president should still desire to fill the vacancy from some other state than New York, It is suggested that ho might appoint Judge Simeon E. Baldwin of the supreme court of Connecti cut, w hose name was presented to the pres ident in connection with the office before Judge llorublower's appointment was made. Fourth CIm* l'o*tin>intrr».

Says Ilia Secretary of tho Treasury Has Authority ti serve Klr^ngllion tho Gold Re* id Mn*t Evory Demand- Publia Credit Will Not Suffer. Washington, Jan. IT.—A second meet ing of the senate finance committee was held (or tliu purpose of considering Secre tary Carlisle's letter and bund bill. After the conclusion of the meeting Senator Voorhecs, aa chairman of the committee, gave out the statement given below. In making it, he said, he did not assume to represent the views of the entire commit tee, aud yet he knew of no opposition in tile committee to the opinions expressed. He siilmiitt«l his statement to the full committee before giving it to the public. Is us follows: Hi-natur Voorltees* Statement. "The embarrassed condition of the treas ury ami the necessity for prompt action for its relief are fully realized. There la not he slightest ground, however, for appre hension that the public credit will suffer Ik- endangered for tlie reason that ample authority already exists by law for tbe secretary of the treasury to strengthen bis coin reserve to any extent required and to meet every demand that can lie legitimate. "The power of the secretary for tho issue of bonds needs nothing beyond which is given by tiio act of Jan. 14, 1877. The only desirable object to bo attain«! by new leg islation at lids time on that subject is to make a shorter ttmo bond with n lower rate of interest, and yet tho secretary feels assured that he can negotiate bonds Issued under the net of lsT5, running only 10 years on practically a !) per cent basis. "It seems, tsicrefore, that it will lie wiser, safer and bet ter for the financial and busi ness interests of the country to rely upon existing laws with Which to meet the pres ent emergency rat her than to encounter tho delays and uncertainties always inci dent to protracted discussion in the two houses of congress. This view of tho con dition of the treasury admits of but little if any delay and of no uncertainty at ail in tile final action to lie taken. "It would be trifling with a very grave affair to pretend that new legislation con cerning the issue uf bonds can lie accom plished at lids time and in the midst ol present elements and parties in public life without elalHirate, extensive and practi cally Indefinite debate, it is also obvious to every one that the consideration and discussion of Hie tariff now going on In congress will render any financial legisla tion at this time far more difficult and complicated than It might bo under other and different circumstance«. Have Considered the IUI1* "It is proper to say In this connection that the senate finance committee for sev eral weeks past has had this subject under almost constant consideration and that the bill submitted by Mr. Carlisle has been ex amined aud discussed with the greatest care. "The interest of the committee will by no means be abated (rum this time for ward. The (act that much remains to be done Is fully recognized. Whatever defi ciency iu the revenues may exist during the current fiscal year will bo promptly provided for by appropriate and efficient legislation at the earliest practicable mo ment."
