Tall Text of the Plans for the Great
Inter-Continental Rail­
way.
It Is Proposed That a Preliminary
Survey Be Made Immediately to
Ascertain the Best Route.
Congress Asked to Make the Nccessary
Appropriations—Harrison Ap­
proves the Plan.
WASHINGTON, May 2 .—The president
has sent to the senate and house a copy
of a lettor of the secretary of state trans­
mitting the proposition adopted by the
Pan American congress for an inter­
colonial railway. The letter of the sec­
retary is as follows:
DEPARTMENT OF STATE,
WASHINGTON, D. C. May 12,1890.
To the President:
I have the honor to submit herewith a
plan for a preliminary survey for a rail­
way line to connect the great commer­
cial cities of the American hemisphere.
No more important recommendation has
come from the International American
conference, and I earnestly commend it
to your attention, .with full confidence
that prompt action will he taken by con­
gress to enable this government to par­
ticipate in the promotion of the enter­
prise. The resolutions of the conference
are accompanied by special reports con­
cerning the transportation facilities that
already exist in the several American
republics. These reports comprise all
the information that could be gathered
upon this important subject, and will be
found botli interesting and authentic.
Under the generous and progressive
policy of President Diaz, the railways of
Mexico have been extended southward,
as well as northward, and toward the
oceans. The development of the Argen­
tine syetem has been equally rapid.
Lines of track now reach from Buenos
Ayres to the northern cities of that re­
public, and nearly to the Eolivian boun­
dary. Chili has a profitable system of
railroads from the mountains to the Pa­
cific ocean, and the completion of the
tunnel that is now being pierced through
the Cordilleras will bring Valparaiso
within two days' travel of Buenos
Ayres. In the other republics similar
enterprise has been shown. Each hasita
local lines of railways and to connect
them all and furnish the people of the
Southern continent the means of con­
venient and comfortable intercourse
with their neighbors north of the isth­
mus is an undertaking worthy the en­
couragement and co-operation of this
government. In no other way could the
government and the people of'the United
States contribute so much to the devel­
opment and prosperity of our sister re­
publics, and at the same time to the ex­
pansion of our own commerce.
A very important feature of the report
to which I especially direct your atten­
tion, will be found in the international
declaration that the line of the proposed
railway shall be forever neutral terri­
tory that the material necessary for the
construction and operation of the road
6hall be admitted free of customs dues
and that its property and revenue shall
be always exempt from all forms of tax­
ation. This guarantee having all the
force of a treaty will stimulate private
and public confidence, and then lead to
the investment of capital that might
otherwise be reluctant and distrustful.
It is proposed that a survey to ascer­
tain the best and most economical routes
be made under the direction of an inter­
national commission, and that the ex­
pense be shared by the several nations
of the hemisphere, in proportion to their
respective populations. The share of
the United States is estimated to be #05,
000, and I would respectfully suggest
the propriety of securing from congress
an appropriation for that purpose.
The headquarters of the commission
by a vote of the international conference
will be located in Washington, and it is
proposed to invite the commissioners to
meet here on the 1st of October next, or
as soon thereafter as practicable, for the
purpose of organization, and initiating
the work of the survey. Respectfully
submitted, JAMES G. BLAINE,
Secretary of State.
In his letter of transmission, the presi­
dent says:
Public attention has been chiefly at­
tracted to the subject of improved water
communication between the ports of the
United States and tlio3e of Central and
South America. The creation of new
and improved steamship lines undoubt­
edly furnish the readiest means of de­
veloping an increased trade with the
Latin American nations But it should
not be forgotten that it is possible to
travel by land from Washington to the
southermost capital of South America,
and that the opening of railroad commu­
nication with these friendly states will
give to them and to us facilities for in­
tercourse and the exchange of trade that
are of special value. The work contem­
plated is vast but entirely practicable.
It will be interesting to all and perhaps
a surprise to most of us to note how
much has already been done in the way
of railroad construction in Mexico and
South America that can be utilized as a
part of an intercontinental line. I do
not hesitate to recommend that congress
make a very moderate appropriation for
surveys suggested by the conference and
authorize the appointment of commis­
sioners and the detail of engineer officers
to direct and conduct the necessary pre­
liminary surveys.
Postal Caril Contract a White Elephant.
NEW YORK, May 21.—The Herald's
special from Birmingham, Conu.. says:
No cards were made at Al. Daggett's
factory in Shelton Monday. Twenty
eight cases of paper that arrived Sunday
were not accepted by the government
agent, hence the delay. It is understood
that H. E. Townsend, agent, is in Wash­
ington, with samples of Wilkinson's
paper. If these are approved Daggett
will be likely to rotain his contract. If
not the outlook is dubious for him.
Keuunier Decision In Reserve.
WASHINGTON, May 21.—The supreme
court has reserved its decision in the
Keminler case and adjourned until
Friday.

Storm—Pro party Diaifi Baonaotu.
MANSFIELD, Ohio, May 81.—Wayne,
Ashland, Richland and Shelby counties
were visited Sunday night by a terrific
wind rain and hail storm. Qreat dam­
age was done in all, but Wayne county
suffered most. Three townships are
swept clean. No loss of life is reported.
Property is damaged to the amount of
|100,000. The storm struck the central
portion of Wayne county late in the ev­
ening. A driving rain drenched the
earth and filled all the streams bank
full. The torrents of water seemed to
chill the air and in a short time hail­
stones, many as large as walnuts, cov­
ered tho earth to a depth of several
inches. In Walling they killed many
sheep and hogs. Wind of great violence
closed the storm. It leveled fences, tore
down barns and woods, and, by its
antics, terrorized the people. In Con­
gress, Canada and Milton townships
there is scarcely a rod of fence standing
and not a house is left undamaged.
Jacob Martin lost both his barns, all his
sheep sheds and forty head of sheep and
hogs. The roof was blown off his dwell­
ing and there is not a pannel of an up­
right fence on his farm of 800 acres.
Mr. Martin is only one of scores of farm­
ers thus suffering.
MGtA'S TIN MINES.
NEW YORK, May 20.—The Herald's
Hill City, S. D., special says: The
Harney Peak Tin Mining, Milling and
Manufacturing company, of New York,
and the Harney Peak Tin company, of
London, have just closed a contract with
the Chicago. Burling and Quincy Rail­
road company to build a road through
the joint properties of the company for
twenty miles, with side tracks and
switches to the various tin mines and
other enterprises now under develop­
ment. The road is to be running to
Hill City, the companies' headquarters,
by January 1, 1891.
SUITS AGAINST SABIN.
Titles to targe Tracts of Wisconsin Tim­
ber and 31 im-nil Lands in Litigation.
MILWAUKEE, Wis., May 20. The
Journal's Madison, Wis., special says:
Willet S. Main, assignee of the St. Croix
Land and Lumber company, has
brought suit in the United States court
against ex-United States Senator Sabin,
of Minnesota, and the Wisconsin Iron
company, asking that the title to large
tracts of land in Price and Dunn coun­
ties be declared to vest in the St. Croix
company on the ground that the title
thereto, had been obtained by Sabin and
the iron company through fraud. Sabin
and others bought the property for a
song and now have opened a mine worth
$600,000. Other mineral deposits have
been found on the tract. Sabin and the
members of the iron company took the
title to the property in their individual
names and the complaint says that they
were about to transfer the property to
the company and negotiate bonds in the
sum of $1,500,000.
MUCH NEEDED MOISTURE.
Timely Rains Set I'ears for tlic Wheat
Crop :it Rest.
ST. PAUL, May SO.—According to the
reports recalled by Sergeant Lyons,
of the weather bureau, rain was
general throughout the Northwest dur­
ing the preceeding twenty-four hours.
In some places the rainfall was inter
mingled with a very light snow. The
rainfall in the Northwest is just what
has been needed, and the beneficial ef­
fect upon the crops is incalculable. It
was particularly timely in the Dakota
wheat belt, where there has been great
anxiety lest the moisture would be so
long delayed that the crop yield would
be materially short. Fears that have
heretofore existed for the safety of crops
can now be put aside for a time.
SENTENCED TO WAUPUN.
A Shawano County, Wis., Official Caught
at Crookeil Pension Work.
MILWAUKEE, May 20.—J. H. Tourte-
lotte, the clerk of the Shawano county
court, was convicted iu the United
States court of having defrauded the
government out of a pension. Hs was
sentenced to two years imprisonment in
the state's prison at Waupun, and to pay
a fine of $1,000. His accomplice, Jo­
seph Gauder, who was his dupe, was
sentenced to pay a fine of $1,250 and to
be imprisoned in the house of correction
for six months. He paid his fine and
the sentence of imprisonment was sus­
pended. Mrs. Frances Otter, through
whom they secured the pension, was
discharged on consideration of having
turned state's evidence.
STRUCK A STRONG FLOW.
Well Diggers iu Jinfl'alo County, S. D.
Find Plenty of Natural Gas.
CHAMBERLAIN, S. D., May 20.—In Buf­
falo county, while sinking a well on the
farm of Eugene Gibbard, the drillers
struck a strong flow of natural gas,
which increased so rapidly in volume
that they were compelled to cease op­
erations. The flow was found at a depth
of 150 feet, and the roar of the escaping
as can be heard quite a distance from
he well. The discovery has caused
great excitement among the residents of
the vicinity.

MONEY FORJARMERS.
Stanford's Bill for the Iasae of Agri­
cultural Land Scrip Introduced
in the Senate.
Loans to Farmers to One-Half the As­
sessed Value of Their 'Lands
Provided For.
Senate Considering Means to Annal
the Recent Prohibition Decision
—Washington.
WASHINGTON, May 21.—Mr. Stanford
introduced in the senate a bill intended
to carry out the idea outlined in his res­
olution presented some time ago. The
bill provides for the establishment in the
treasury department of a land bureau
with a chief at $6,000 a year, and an
assistant at $5,000 a year to be appointed
by the president, The treasurer is to
cause to be printed, signed and ready
for issue circular notes of the denomina­
tion of $5, $10, $20, $50, $100, $500 and
$1,000 to the amount of $100,000,000,
which shall be legal tender with gold
and silver coin for like amounts, and
these notes are to be held in the treas­
ury to the credit of the land loan bureau
until issued in accordance with the pro­
vision of this bill. Every person who is
a citizen or who has declared his inten­
tion to become a citizen and who is the
owner in fee of unincumbered agricul­
tural land may file with the bureau an
application for a loan to be secured by
a lien on the land. The note is not to
exceed
One-Half the Assessed Value.
of the land, and no loan is to be tor less
than $250 or to run for more than
twenty years. A copy of the application
for a loan is to be filed with the recorder
of the deeds of the county or the coun­
ties of the state or territory in which the
land is situated, and it shall constitute a
lien on the property. The applicant for
a loan is to deposit a sum to be pre­
scribed by the chief of the bureau, suffi­
cient to pay the costs of the examination
of the title, inspection and appraisement
of the land, and this work is to be done
by persons in their respective counties to
be designated by the chief the bureau.
When the chief is satisfied of the char­
acter of the security, he is to transmit to
the proper officer of the treasury depart­
ment an order directiug the payment of
the money to be loaned, the amount to
remain subject to the order of the ap­
plicant, who may draw it from time to
time by check or draft. If the chief
finds on investigation that this is an ex­
isting lien on the property
of less than the amount of the loan asked
of the bureau and \vananted by law, the
loan may be made, but the existing lien
is to be discharged, and the amount of
it deducted from the loan made by the
government. The bureau loans are to
pay 2 per cent, interest, and to be paya­
ble annually.
CONGRESSIONAL PROCEEDINGS.
The House.
WASHINGTON, May 21.—The house
went into committee of the whole on the
tariff bill, Mr. Grosvenor, of Ohio, in
the chair.
Mr. Henderson, of North Carolina,
offered an amendment abolishing the
minimum punishment prescribed for
violation of the internal revenue laws.
Rejected.
Mr. Cowles, of North Carolina, offered
an amendment repealing the tobacco tax.
Rejected.
Mr. Sayres, of Texas, offered an
amendment providing that iron and
steel cotton-ties, or hoops for baling or
other purposes, not thinner than No 20,
wire gauge, shall be admitted free of
duty. Rejected.
The Senate.
WASHINGTON, May 21.—The senate
considered a bill from the judiciary com­
mittee to overcome the effect of the re­
cent supreme court decision on liquor in
original packages. The bill was debated
at length.
California Public Lands.
WASHINGTON, May 21.—The president
sent to the senate the draught of a bill
prepared by the secretary of the interior
providing for survey and disposal of a
tract of land situated in Monterey, Cal.,
known as the Cuartel lot. The lot is
one of those excluded from the survey
of the Pueblo lands of Monterey by de­
cision of the secretary of the interior.
It has been occupied at intervals by the
war department for military purposes,
but it is not within the limits of any
declared military reservation, therefore
it does not come within the provisions of
the act providing for the transfer of
abandoned military reservations, and
special legislation is needed to authorize
the secretary of the interior to dispose
of it.
To Provide Against Census Corruption.
WASHINGTON, May 21.—Mr. Hale in­
troduced in the senate a bill providing
that any census supervisor or enumera­
tor who shall receive any fee except that
paid him by the government, or any
person or persons, corporation or munic­
ipality paying any fee to any supervisor
or enumerator shall be deemed guilty of
a misdemeanor and on conviction shall
be imprisoned not exceeding two years
and fined not exceeding $5,000.
Wants to Vote on the Tariff.
WASHINGTON, May 21.—Senator-elect
Carlisle appeared in the house Monday
for the first time since he left Washing
to attend the funeral of the late Senator
Beck. He said to a reporter of the
United Press that he would probably
take his seat in the senate on Thursday.
Mr. Carlisle does not wish to leave the
house earlier than Thursday as he wishes
to vote on the tariff Bill.
An Arkansas Outrage.
HOT SPRINGS, Ark., May 21.—Miss
Florence McKeogli, while riding her
pony about three miles northwest of this
city, was fired at twice by unknown
parties in hiding. One shot passed
through the back part of her body, be­
hind her shoulders. The young lady
managed to remain on her* horse and
succeeded in reaching a house about a
mile distant. The sheriff and posse are
scouring the country, endeavoring to
capture the villain. No cause is known.

COLOR LINE IN Q. A. R.
L»nil»llU Potts MinifM Over tki Ad­
mission of Negro Veteraas to tho Order.
NEW YORK, May 31.—A special from
Lonisville, Ky., to The Herald says the
color line is causing
trouble in Louisville
poets of the Grand Army of the Itepub
lic. As a result the posts have refused
to unite on Decoration day's service.
The trouble grew out of the selection of
a department commander. Capt. Winter,
of Louisville, was elected at the encamp­
ment a few weeks ago by a majority of
six votes, and it is charged that he got
his election by making pledges to the
colored troops. White veterans have
become so stirred up over the matter
that a movement is now on foot to force
the negroes into posts of their own, and
to prevent their admission to the meet­
ings of the whites.
IWFOL WOE
HAVANA, May 20.—At 11 o'clock p. m.
a fire broke out in Ysasis' hardware
store. In a short time the flames reached
a barrel of powder in the building and
a terriffic explosion followed. The whole
structure was blown to pieces and
thirty-four persons were killed. Among
the dead are four fire chiefs, Senores
Musset, Sensoviech, Oscar Conill, Fran­
cesco Ordonez, and the Venezuelan con­
sul, Senor Francesco Silva, who hap­
pened to be in front of the building at
the time of the explosion. In addition

OVER ONE HUNDRED ARE INJURED.
The explosion caused the wildest ex­
citement throughout the city and thou­
sands flocked to the scene of the disas­
ter. The governor general, the civil gov­
ernor and all the principal authori­
ties of the city were promptly on
the ground and did everything in their
power to aid the injured and calm the
grief-stricken relatives of the victims.
Several houses adjacent to the wrecked
building were damaged by the explo­
sion. Gangs of men are at work on the
debris. Many human limbs have been
taken from the ruins. The conduct of
the authorities is the subject of universal
praise. The highest officials have in­
curred personal risk in conducting the
search for the dead, and have offered the

HUNDREDS PERISH.
Siberian City Simultaneously Visited by
Fire and Cyclone—Sufferings of Exiles.
ST. PETERSBURG, May 20.—Horrible
scenes are reported as having occurred
during the burning of Tomsk, the capi­
tal of Western Siberia. The place was
visited simultaneously by a conflagra­
tion and a cyclone, the result of the
combined disasters being the destruction
of three-quarters of the buildings, which
were of wood, and the loss of hundreds
of lives. The cathedral, situated in
High Town, is in ashes. The walls of
the edifice iu falling crushed an adja­
cent hospital, burying the inmates, who
were subsequently roasted alive. The
garrison brutally refused to render the
least assistance in saving lives and prop­
erty, on the plea that they had enough to
do to protect the barracks and other
government buildings. They also added
that they had no time to assist "worth­
less exiles." The panic-stricken mob of
sufferers huddled together in the streets,
and, firmly believing that the end of the
world had eoipe, abandoned themselves
to stolid despair. Much of the suffering
might have been averted had there been
the slightest attempt at organized relief.
As if fire ana water were not capable of
inflicting misery enough to the unfor­
tunate outcasts, the storm was followed
by a sudden fall in the temperature, and
soon the devastated city wasimried be­
neath a mantle of snow that added
stinging cold to the sufferings of the
thousands of shelterless men, women
and children.

The Shade of Columbu?.
Rebuffed by every potentate before
whom he laid his plans, and jeered at by
the populace before setting eail for the
New World, Columbus upon his return
was listened to with open mouthed
astonishment by the king, queen and
people.

even Columbus would have listened to
some inspired prophet who could have
told him of the wonders of the New World
today.
His thought is tLe idea in a very hand­
some picture published by Wm. Deering
& Co., Chicago. The Shade of Columbus
is shown gazing in surprise at the mam­
moth Deering works, and the Deering
binders and mowers cutting grain and
grass. What would he sav if he could
express his thoughts?

Hood's Sarsaparilla was. I had taken it, was
satisfied with it, and did not want any other.

When I began taking Hood's Sarsaparilla
I was feeling real miserable, suffering
a great deal with dyspepsia, and so weak
that at times I could hardly stand. I looked,
and had for some time, like a person in con­
sumption. Hood's Sarsaparilla did me so
much good that I wonder at myself sometimes,
and my friends frequently speak of it." MBS.
