The Government Strengthened by the Date Outrage. An Overwhelming R'iejorlry In Favor of the New legislation Vaillant Con tinues to aiory In Hia Das tardly Crime. By ihe Art octal ed Press. Paris, Dec. 11. —A cabinet council wag held this afternoon. A bill was agreed npon to be submitted to tbe chamber providing for the repression of auarcby. Caaimir-Perier presented a few measures to the chamber. He dwelt upon the necessity of passing them, saying they would not encroach upon true liberty. His remarks were greeted with profound cheering. Tbe first of these bills makes it a penal offense to publish incitements to corn nut outrages by the use of explosives. Tbe second regulates the manufacture and possession of explosives. The third extends the powers of the police for the repression of anarchistic agitat on and for preventing anarchistic outrages. The fourth provides for police super vision uf anarchist societies. THE PREMIER EXPLAINS. Casimir-Perier. who wsb frequently interrupted by applause, explained that the bii! to modify the press law provides for making it a penal offense to publish incitements to pillage or murder or com mit incendiary crimes, aud also provides that the glorification of crimes be pun ished by live years' imprisonment, and the authorities shall have power to make preventive arrests and seizures. Goblet opposed immediate discussion of the bill, claiming he feared it would encroach upon the liberty of tbe press, and appealed to the departments not to lose their heads. Goblet's remarks were followed with cheers irom the Leftists and greeted with protests from the Cen trists. A SWEEPING VICTORY. Pelletan moved to adjourn the debate until tomorrow, but amid a scene of con siderable enthusiasm upon the part of the supporters of the government, this motion was rejected by a vote of 404 to 143. Tbe announcement of tne result v as greeted with load cheering. Rnmel then moved that the govern ment's bill be sent to the committee immediately. Caemir-Porier promptly opposed tbia motion amid the loud applause ol the Centrists, which was accompanied by the protests of the Leftists. A scene of great exciteiuent followed, but the gov ernment again won a sweeping victory, the m won being rejected by a vote ol 889 to 156. Viviani eaid the Socialuts wnnted to discuss laws and not adopt tbem with out debate. Amid considerable inter ruption Viviani continued, laying the Socialists would not consent to rush tbe bills through. A SOCIALIST UPROAR. Toussaint, Socialist, created an up roar by declaring tbe majority of depu ties were panic-stricken and were ready to adopt any measure which tbe govern ment brought forward. Finally, in spite of the protests of the Socialists, an im mediate discussion of tbe bills was or dered. lioißserin demanded that tbe minister of justice, Dubost, should give the ct'amber full explanations concerning the proposed modifications of the press Uw; Dubost, gieeted with cheers from the majority of tbe members, warmly re plied tbat the new preeslaw was only destined to hinder crime (loud cheering) and associations of anarchists, "whose leaders," the minister loudly exclaimed, "are known to tbe government" (cheers), and it was against thin class the government aimed its repressive measures. [Cheers.] Boiaeerin then proposed an amend ment, which the government opposed amid loud cheering, and which was re jected by a vote of 3(30 to 813, tbe result being received with loud cheers from the friends of law and order. After further diecussiou the bill was adopted by a vote of 413 to 130, and the chamber adjourned. EXCITEMENT DYING OUT, The excitement resulting from the throwing of tbe bomb in the chamber of deputies, Saturday, has somewhat subsided, and the people are now look ing to the chamber to enact measures to stamp out tbe reds. Previous to tins outrage tbe union of tbe Socialists and anarchists was strong enough in the chamber to overthrow one government, and tbey were confident of being able to do tbe same with the existing govern ment, but Vaillant's dastardly perform ance seems to have greatly strengthened the hands of the government and put it in a position to make an effectual fight agafnst anarchy. It is believed this act, which haa aent chills chasing up and down the spine of every monarch in Europe, will result in joint action by France, England, Spain, Italy and Austria for the extradition and severe punishment of all proved to have engaged in an anarchistic conspiracy. vaillant's bravado. Vaillant still defiantly professes to glory in his act, and declares be bad no accomplices, but this tbe police do not believe and are at work on clues looking to arrest others in connection with the affair. It is believed Vaillant will be speedily tried and executed. It appears that Marchal, the name which he first gave, is the name of his mistress Whom be enticed away from her husband, having deserter his own wife in Amer ica and came to France last.January. He went to board at Marshal's house. Madame Marshal hae told the police the story of bow he succeeded in separating her from her husband, and then made her work from morning till night to support hfm, and abused her terribly when she no longer had money to give bim. AN IMPORTANT CAPTURE. The police have searched the apart ments of a Dutch anarchist named Cohen, finding copper tubea to be used aa bombs and documents of the utmost importance, including a thousand letters from anarchists in all parts of Germany, which will enable the police to place the German authorities in possession of a list of ail tbe centers of anarchy in that country. Deputy De Jean, an extreme socialist, has written a letter in Le Matin, excusing Vaillant. NO ACCOMPLICES. An examination of the suspects fails to disclose tbat Vaillant had any accom plices. The other men detained cannot be connected with the outrage. Four are now held and these will be charged with vagrancy. In reply to questions by tbe minister of justice as to bis motive, Vaillant said: "It would be useless to explain my mo tive to yon. You are a bourgeois and would not understand." SOCIALISTS INDIGNANT. A meeting of Socialists was held in the Maiaon dv Pueple tonight, and the pro posed repressive measures of the gov ernment were violently denounced. The rpeakers declared it 'vas unjust to cast tUe stigma of Bucb an outrage as tbat committed in the chamber of deputies Upon the Socialists. NEW REGULATIONS. The committee of tbe chamber of deputies has decided that it iB impossi ble to abolish tbe constitutional regula tion which provides admission to the gallery of the first 17 persons who arrive, in order to insure publicity to debates, but tbe committee has deter mined that in the future tiieee 17 persons shall be compelled to give their names and addresses before being admit ted. No visitors will be admitted to the waiting halls hereafter unless pro vided with a letter from a deputy giving an appointment. Only members of that chamber and journalists will be admitted to the sails dcs pas perdus, and news paper men will be under otrict sur veillance. The senate will adopt simi lar regulations. ' TROOPS AND PEASANTS. SERIOUS RIOTING IN A COMMUNE OF ITALY. A JVfob Wreolts Bloody Vengeance for the Killing or Eight of Its Mem bers—A riangninary Eucouu at liltonote, Italy. Palermo, Dec. 11.—Serious rioting took place in tbe commune Giardinello yesterday. The disturbances were in stigated by tbe Fasco del Laveratore so ciety. Troops were hastily summoned from Montolepre, and upon arriving at Giardinello the soldiers wem attacked by a mob and a savage conflict followed. Finally tbe soldiers, mistaking an order, fired upon tbe rioters, killing eight aud wounding three. None of the soldiers were hurt. Further troops were sum moned, but before their arrival tbe mob had fled. Alter the rioters had dispersed the troops retired to town to await reinforce ments. The mob returned to the vicini ty of the town ball and resumed the at tack with increased violence. They en tered the home of tbe town clerk and murdered bim and his wife, and after looting the premises departed, carrying tbe heads of their victims away with on pikes. A serious conflict is expected when the troops attempt to arrest those who took part in the terrible crime. Rome, Dec. 11. —Tbe inhabitants of Bitonote attacked gendarmes for inter fering with fireworks in the celebration of a religious festival. The officers fired and killed a peasant. The mob drove the gendarmes to the barracks. They then caught Customs Officers Cnrci, saturated bis clothing and set it afire. He way rescued by tbe gendarmes, but was so badly burned tbat he will die. HOIIVK PROCEEDINGS I . An Agreement Reached for Considera tion or the Utah Bill. Washington, Dec. 11.—In tbe bouse today when the morning hour arrived Kilgore of Texas was about to call up the bill for the admission of Utah, when Dingley, ou behalf of the Republican aide, made a statement declaring the bill of too much importance to be con sidered during the morning hour, but no objection would bo made from his side if ample opportunity were allowed for debate and amendment. Thereupon General Wheeler asked unanimous con sent that tomorrow and Wednesday, after tbe morning hour, be set aeide for its consideration. Without objection the order wbb made. It is nnderstood tbat a delegation of Republicans from Utah waa instrumental in inducing the Republican leaders to recede from op position to the bill. The bill to review claims arising out of the captured and abandoned act aroused the opposition of the Republi cans, and notice was served on the Dem ocratic side by Reed tbat this bill could only be considered under tbe stress of a special order from the committee on rules. A bill was passed making it compul sory for all steam vessels of 1000 tons burthen to have, when nnder way, one engineer and one helper in the engine room, and all such vessels to carry two licensed engineers. The bill is not ap plicable to ferry boats which run leas than 10 Hours daily. Removal.

Hoar Springs a New Hawaiian Resolution. The President Called Upon for More Information. An Impeachment of His Right to Ap point a Special Diplomatic Officer Without the Advice and Con sent of the Senate. By tho Associated Press. Washington, Dec. 11.—In the senate today the unexpected happened and the expected failed to materialize. The ex pected political debate on tbe federal elections law repeal was averted by Hill acquiescing in the suggestion of Hoar that the bill should be referred to the committee on privileges and elections. On the other hand, no one expected de bate on the Hawaiian question until the resolution calling for information by tbe senate last week had been complied with by the executive. Today Hoar submitted another resolution calling upon the president for specific answers to questions which literally complied with would lay before the senate and the country the history of the actions of tbe present administration on tbe Ha waiian mutter. After a lively debate between the author of the resolution aud Gray, the resolution went over until tomorrow. THE HOAR RESOLUTION. Tbe resolution is as follows: That the president be requested to inform tbe senate if, in hie opinion, it be not inconßiatant with public intereat, whether any person whose name has not been submitted to the senate for ad vice and conaant j and if so, what person has been appointed since the 4th day of March, 1893, to represent the United t tateß in the Hawaiian islands, and whether juch person has been accredited to the president of the executive and advisory council of the Hawaiian isl ands, and whether such person baa been presented to the head of the government of the Hawaiian islands, and whether any and if so, what authority has been given to such person touching the rela tions of this government to tlie then ex isting or other government of the Ha waiian islands and the protection of American citizens therein, and whether any discretion or power has been com mitted to auch person to de termine when a naval force of the United Statea should be lauded therein or withdrawn therefrom ; and whether any authority has been committed to such person to use phys ical force in the territory of said govern ment, or to land au armed force there; and whether such pereon lias been authorized, or has in fact corresponded in regard to the public affairs of the government of tbe Hawaiian islands with any private person, newspaper or any other periodical, or lias been author ized to, or has in fact undertaken to receive in said Hawaiian islands the testimony of any privrte person, or has requested or received written commu nications from any private person in regard to the lawful and existing government there, or the circumstances under which said existing government was established, or any other matters relating to tbe public affaira thereof, and if any such appointment or author ity has been made or given, further to inform the senate whether theeame was made or given at a time when the senate was in session, or has continued in force during any session of tbe senate or of congress, or any part thereof, arid further, whether such appointment or authority was communicated to the senate during any session thereof; and further, whether any person has accept ed or undertaken any correspondence with the government of Hawaii, or with any private person, to describe himself ac commissioner of the United States. hoar's remarks. Hoar, in tbe courae of his remarks on the resolution, said if it were true tbat the president (the senate being in ses sion) authorized an officer to exercise paramount diplomatic authority in an other country with which the United States was at peace, authorized bim to employ at his discretion the naval force of tbe United States, and had given him a title which waß enumerated as one of the diplomatic officers in the act of con gress, he was standing upon very slip pery ground, and had better step on terra firma rapidly and at once. [Laughter.] "The ostrich puts hia head in tbe sand," said Hoar, "and thinks he will not be Been; the rhinoceros hides in hia mndpuddle and breathes through his nose, and thinks be will not be seen; but neither of these are fit and suitable precedents for tho president of the United Stateß. The people will know the truth of the matter." GRAY DEFENDS CLEVELAND. Gray said Hoar had scolded through the previous administration of Cleve land, and had scolded Cleveland in the White House again. In the conrse of his remarks, Gray said he believed the policy of Cleveland was not only that of justice and magnanimity, but one of non-interference. THE PARAMOUNT COMMISSIONER. Hoar commented upon the fact that information communicated by the presi dent to certain senators nnder tbe seal of confidence had been freely given out to the representatives of four newspapers known to be zealous, thorough-going, he had almost said unscrupulous, support ers of the administration. One of tbe allegations was tbat the president on the 7th day of March, 1893 (tbe senate being then in session), commissioned n person to go to Hawaii, accrediting him by letter as commissioner iron, this gov ernment, and said in his letter of in structions he waß to be pcramount as TEN PAGES. the representative of the United States in the Hawaiian islands. If that allegation were true, said Hoar, it seemed to him as gross a viola tion of the conatitution of the United States as ever charged upon or imputed to any public official. It was not neces sary to say to the senate or to the ad ministration people that an attempt to usurp the power of appointing or com missioning auch an officer without the consent of the senate waß an attempt to usurp all tbe diplomatic relations of the government. DCFKKESCE TO JOHN BOLL. Hoar read an Associated Press cable gram from London attributing to Bay ard the statement that there could be no reversal of a policy based simply on juetice and magnanimity, and tbat no advantage would be taken of the weak ness of the Hawaiian islands. He aaid if that dispatch were true, it waa also true that Great Britain had been taken into a confidence which the administra tion, the senate and the American people had not shared. In the course of bis speech Hoar said when it was known that tbe president's message had been published in London in the morning papers in advance of its delivery to congreaa, it was supposed to be one oi those accidents for which nobody especially is responsible, but no such explanation could be made in this case. Hoar said he desired to have tbe Hawaiian question separated from all questions in regard to which the parties were divided. Overdue Steamers. San Francisco, Dec. 12.—At 2 a.m. the steamer Oceanic, due from Hono lulu, has not been sighted. Victoria, B. 0., Dec. 11.—At 2 a.m. the steamer Arowa, dne here from Hono lulu, had not arrived.

Bruce brought suit against the Iron Holders' union for $10,000 damages, claiming he haß been unable to obtain work for three years past because he is not a member of the union.

The Provisional Governmant Still In Power November 88th—Thoy Will BeiUt to the Utmost tho Queen's Restoration. Copyrighted, 1893, by the Associated Press. Yokohama, Dec. 11, 7:45 p. m. —The steamer China, which left San Francisco November 21st and Honolulu probably about November 28tb, has just arrived here. An Associated Press correspond ent immediately went aboard and had an interview with the officers and pas sengers regarding the situation in Ha waii. They stated that when the steamer left the islands the provisional govern ment was still in power and was main taining a very determined attitude. Much excitement prevailed among busi ness men and the people generally, and the action of the United States govern ment was awaited with the greatest anx iety. The members of the provisional government were resolute in their declar ations against the restoration of the monarchy, and openly expressed their intention of resisting to the utmost any attempt President Cleveland might make to reinstate the queen. MO PROTECTORATE. Japan Will Not Aaaume Jurisdiction Over Hawaii. Washington, Dec. 11. —It can be stated positively that Japan has no purpose of assuming a protectorate over Hawaii in case the United States should lose or abandon its status there. Reports have been persistently circu lated of late as to Japan's intentions of advancing her control of the islands, and a statement published today by Henry Smith of Buffalo, who has just, returned from Hawaii, says if the pro visional government retires it will be succeeded by a protectorate by Japan or Great Britain. At the Japanese lega tion here this statement was declared to be visionary so far as Japan ia con cerned. A Japanese warship was sent to Honolulu some time ago, in order to insure protection during tbe critical times to' the 20,000 Japanese on the islands. This wbb not a step towards acquiring or controlling Ha waii, as it is not to the interest of Japan to extend her present govern mental relations with the islands. They are 14 days' sail from Japan and she has no other possessions in that locality which would make Hawaii valuable to ber as a strategic naval station. More over, it was added, the interests of Japan undoubtedly will be best served by maintaining ber present relations with Hawaii. These are guaranteed by treaty and give the Japanese on the islands many privileges and assurances of protection which Japan would not care to disturb. The treaties were made during the reign of the queen, but have been fully lived up to by the present government, so fully tbat Japanese im migration to Hawaii continues unabated.

His Declaration for the Monarchy Is Important. A Long and Severe Civil War In Pros" pect — Cable Communication Cut Cffßntween Montevideo and Kio I>e Janeiro. By the Associated Press. Washington, Dec. 11.—The Brazilian revolution has assumed a new and much more serious aspect by the declaration of Admiral de Gama in favor of the revolution and tho restoration of tbe empire. Minister Mendonca doeß not seek to belittle the seriousness of De Gama's defection. "I know Gama per sonally and most intimately," eaid the minister, "and I realize that he gives the rebels power and prestige they have never before had. Although he in a rear-admiral of the same rank rb Melio, yet De Gama is recognized as the most popular and most able man in the navy. The entire navy is likely io follow De Gama, for he has a controling influence over most of the officers of the navy and those who would not follow him through respect, would do so in fear of him." THE INSURGENT FLEET. Admiral De Gama has two protected cruisers and two lesser war ships inßide the harbor. Admiral Mello has the ironclads Aquidaban and Republica out aide the harbor. Mendonca said De Game's declaration in favor of restoring the empire would probably stimulate tbe exiled relicts of the old emperor to contribute large sums towards restoration. "The pretender is related to some of the oldest and wealth iest noble houses in Europe," said he. "They will probably come forward with money to supply food and ammu nition for the naval forces of De Gama and Mello. There is a colony of old Brazilian imperialists at Paris and an other in Portugal. Tbe Bonrbona of Spain are also related to the pretender." ASSURANCES FROM ABROAD. "I have little doubt tbat Admiral De Gama had assurances in advance from these wealthy and royal sources before he declared for tbe empire. I know him to be an exceedingly careful man ; so much so that he wonld be likely to take the precaution to secure in advance the co-operation of the imperialists abroad. "One thing is certain, however, and that is that the monarchy will never be restored in Brazil. The effort for it by De Gama may bring civil war and dis rupt Brazil, but can never succeed, as Republican institutions are too firmly planted to be shaken." THE DANGER LINE. The navy department today received tbe following from Commander Picking at Rio: "The Brazilian government has requested consuls to warn vessels to move from their present anchorages, and has drawn a line inside over which it is dangerous to venture. This pre vents tbe discharge of cargoes at the wharves." This is interpreted to mean tbe an chorage and wharves have come within tbe line of fire of tbe forts and Mello's ships, and tbat it is not safe to come within that line. SOMETHING IMPORTANT. New York, Dec. 11.—The Herald's special says fighting continues between the rebel warships and loyal forts at Nictheroy. Cable communication be tween Rio and Montevideo has been cut off, and it is suspected something im portant has happened. VENEZUELAN REBELS. A Scheme to Capture All the Important Seaport Towns. New York, Dec. 11.—The World will say tomorrow: It is ascertained that there is a project in New York to equip a war vessel to go to Venezuela and cap ture the important seaport towns and gain possession of the custom houses. The revolutionary movement in Venezu ela against Crespo is in the hands of groups of exiles in New York. Paris and the West Indies, which are abundantly supplied with money. In the event of the success of the revolution it is be lieved General Peraza, now living in Brooklyn, will be made president of the republic. WAITING lOK A REPLY. A Denver Editor Asks the President for Information. Denver, Dec. 11.—The editor of the Times Ibis morning sent the following telegram to President Cleveland: "For the information of tbe people of Colorado, will you kindly make a publio statement as to the effect in the east of the repeal of the so-called Sherman act? Tbe many thousands who have been thrown out of employment in this state by its repeal are ready to hear that it has resulted in the restoration of pros perity elsewhere." Confirmations. Washington, Dec. 11.—Tbe senate has confirmed the following nominations: Joseph B. Doe of Wisconsin, assistant secretary of war; Col. E. S. Otis, Twen tieth infantry, brigadier general; Col. Geo. D. Ruggles, assistant adjutant general, adjutant general with the rank of brigadier general, and a number of other army promotions. jluiflrfrau Bankers Suspend. Rome, Dec. 11.—The Maquay Hoooer company, American bankers, have sus pended, owing chiefly to losses suffered through the failure of the banking house of Dv Fresne at Florence.
