OLNEY'S BOLD BLUFF DISSECTED. Senator Hoar on the Stanford Claim. It la Founded Merely on a Tech nicality. Coiiriiiiui Linton of Michigan Jfrtel an Attack Upon tha Catholic Church IB Connection With In dian Schools. Br the Atloeiated Preie, Washington, June 7.—The action o! the attorney-general in claiming $15, --(100,000 from the estate of the late Ice land Stanford occupied the attention of the senate when tbe tariff bill was taken np today. The question arose upon a resolution introduced by Mr. Hoar, in structing the committee on judiciary to pass upon the equity of the claim and whether it should not be set at rest. Speaking on the Stanford resolution Senator Hoar said the government ought at once to decide the question of •ztingnishing and putting this claim at rest. He did not suppose, he said, that anyone seriously supposed the govern ment had a claim against the Stanford •state, and it waa proper the judiciary committee abould inquire whether this alleged claim was founded ou a techni cality or npon law and equity. Mr. Hoar reoited the benefactions under the Will of Stanford, and added: "If the government had a claim of $16,000,000, that was only 20 cents each ior inhabitants of the United States, to whom Mr. Stanford bad consecrated hia large estate, and it onght not to embar raes the closing years of his widow and •ripple and perhaps destroy the great gift be had made for the benefit of the poor by seeking to press it." No one, Mr. Blackburn said in reply, felt mora deeply than he tbe public spirit manifested by bis late associate in devoting so much to educational pur poses. But the question was. Did he own the estate, or had he sought to di vert to this high pnrpoae an estate that belonged to tbe United States? The attorney-general had already taken steps to determine thia question, and it waa tbe first time be had ever heard of either house of con gresa attempting to stay the hand of tbe law officers of tbe government, when in expressed terms, tbe reeolution only applied to tbe Stanford eatate; if the claim againat Mr. Stanford's eatate waa relioquiehed and set at rest the claim againat Hopkina, Crocker and Huntington must be released also. Mr. Hoar Insisted tbat this did not necessarily follow. The resolution waa one of pure inquiry. "Are we to understand," inquired Mr. Voorbeea, "that thia proceeding on the part of the United Statea is an at tempt to bold tbe Stanford eatate for the mortgage the government holda against the Central Pacific?" "No," replied Mr. Hoar; "it is a pro ceeding under a California statute on tbe ground of stockholders' liability. After the firat and aecond mortgages fall due, unless they are satisfied, tbe stockhold ers become individually liable." B' Belore taking my seat, I desire to ear," said Mr. Voorhees, "tbat Leland Stanford ia the only very rich man I have ever known whoae simplicity and sub limity of character waa not touched or debased by wealth. Hia waa the aim ple, kindly, devoted nature that exieta elsewhere without tbe corrupting influ ence of wealth." The tariff bill was then taken np. Mr. Carey completed hie speech on the bill at 6 o'clock. Mr. Harris, pursuant to an agree ment, reached after consultation with some of the Republican leadera, sprang a Burpriae on many oi the senators in tbe ebape of a proposition to proceed with schedules "Q," agricultural pro ducts, and "H," spirits and other bev erages; "I" cottons and "J" flax, hemp and jute, nnder the five-minute rule. Thia wonld have carried the senate acbedule "X,' : wool and woolena, under fast marching orders. Kit seemed at first as if there wonld be no opposition. Mr. Harria etated that ■Iter consultation on both sides of the senate he indulged In the hope that this Agreement would be reached. If it was, he aaid, it will put an end to a contro versy about night seßsions. While the matter waa being informally discussed, Mr. Quay sauntered into the chamber. He asked what it all meant. On being told it was a request for unanimous con sent to limit the debate he aaid, "I ob ject." Having thus abruptly smashed the proposed truce he walked out into the marble room. The aenate then proceeded with the debate on the bill. Meaara. Allison, Bherman, McLaurin, Manderaon, Vest, Allen and Teller par ticipated. The Nebraska senator became Involved in a discussion with Mr. Tellei on the cause of tbe low price of wheat. Mr. Teller aaid hotly that he waa at a loss to locate the Nebraaka senator polit ically alter his remarke and hia recent votes. He did not know what he be longed to —the Populiatic or the Demo cratic party. "I voted with yon on the last vote on the sugar acbedule," said Mr. Allen. "I beg the senator's pardon," replied Mr. Teller, "you voted for and I voted against tbe sugar acbedule." "I voted against the discrimination in favor of the auger trust." "But you voted for the Bchedule." "T vnted for it because the nartv tn "1 voted ior it oecause tne party to which you belong bankrupted the treas ury, and we could not lose the revenue in tbe acbedule." The diacuesion waa continued until 5:30 p.m., when a vote waa had on the finance committee'e amendment tixintt tbe rate on oatmeal at 15 per cent, and excluding it from the reciprocity pro vision of the paragrapha. It was adopted. Then, at 6 o'clock, with a aarcastio allusion to the rapid progress made to day, Mr. Harris moved tbe senate go into executive session, and, aft6r a brief period, the Benate adjourned. Catholic CHurch Attacked. Washington, Juue 7. —The house had the Indian appropriation bill under dis cussion today. The main feature of the debate was an attack againßt tbe Catho lic church made by Mr. Linton of Mich igan, in which he argued againßt tbe contract Indian school, saying that un der this system the largest share of tbe appropriation for education of Indians went to Catnolic Indian schools. A reso lution waa adopted before adjournment calling on tbe secretary of the treasury for information aa to the enforcement of I he immigration and contract labor laws, and another authorizing the committee on immigration to visit Ellis island for (he pnrpose of studying the operation of the laws. At 4:33 p.m, the house ad journed. WENT OUT OF BUSINESS. Th« Gorman National Bank Deflaltely Cloaaa Ita Doom. Denver, Jnn» 7.—The Gorman Na tional bank, one of the oldest in tbe city, did not open ita doora today and ia going out of buainess. It waa one ol the banka compelled to close during the panic laat July. When it reopened depositors accepted extension certifi cates. Tbe first of these, due last March, were paid on the 2d of June, aa present ed until tonight when the funds of tbe bank were exhausted, and the directors decided to close the doors permanently. National Bank Examiner Lazear was notified and took charge of the books today. The closing of the bank means the liquidation aa far aa possible. It is impossible to ascertain whether the depositors will be paid in full or not. The capital of the bank la $300,000 and the surplus $350,000. The bank waa organized in 187.1 aa a private banking institution by J. J. Rathmann, and iv 1877 became a national bank. It prospered until the panic last summer, when a run occurred and it haa steadily lost ground since. Mr. Rathmann was president of tho bank until 1889, when he retired to give place to George T. Rich. Recently Mr. Rathmann was again elected president. County Treasurer Wygant had about $20,000 public moneys on deposit, lie Bays tbat it haa a bond signed by all the directora and that he and the county are amply indemnified.

CUT Off I'R >M COMMUNICATION Wil li THE BAST, Nearly All the Uallroad« Leading luto Oregon Itendare.l Uanlees by the Trem-niLius Waaboata. Portland, Ore.. June 7.—No accurate estimate of the damage by floods along tbe Columbia and Willamette rivers can be made. It is certain, however, to reach into tbe millions of dollars. The entire northwest, includin? Idaho, Washington, Oregon and British Colom bia is virtually shut oil from the east by the floods. The Canadian Pacific, Great Northern, Northern Pacific and Union Pacific roads have been washed out for hundreds of miles, aud it will require weeks to repair the damage after the water goes dotvn. This city still has connection by the way of the Southern Paci'Jc, but east ern mails are bad'y delayed. The Northern Pacific makes connection be tween Paget sound and this city by means of the transfer boat which runs from Kelso, Wash., to this city. In Northern Idaho, tbe Great North ern and Northern Pacific have been washed out for miles, rendering the roads almost useless west of Idaho. The Union Pacific is paralyzed from Uma tilla west end tbe Oregon Railway and Navigation company's road which is the western connection of the Union, will have to be practically rebuilt from Uma tilla to Portland, a distance oi 200 miles. The Upper Columbia is now falling but the river here remains stationary. It will require at least a week for the water to get out of the streets alter it begins to recede, as at many points on Front street the water is 10 feet deep. Tbe streets adjacent to tbe flooded dis trict, which now includes three-fourths of the business portion of the city, are alive with vehicles of all kinds, hauling goods out of the water. Portland, June 7.—For several days the air haß been full of rumors, which tell how whole towns on the upper Co lumbia have been washed away, and that the stream is full of floating build ings. Reliable information obtained Irom travelers who have recently come over the water route* show ttfat the con dition of affairs is greatly exaggerated. Among the passengers on the steamer Dalles City which arrived from the Cascades tonight, waa Rev. G. M. Ir win, the newly elected superintendent of instruction. He enid : 'The damage done by the flood at Tbe Dallea baß been greatly exaggerated, and the same thing may be Baid of all other points except Great's station, which is really in im minent danger of being completely swept away." Pilot W. H. Pope of the Northern Pa cific tratißfer boat Tacoma cays: "At places the Columbia is a sea from 15 to 20 miles wide. The lower portion of Kelso is covered with water and several bouses thereabout have floated away. During the week the Tacoma haa passed about a dozsn floating houses." Clatsakanie river and Benver slough are so badly swollen that Capt. George N. Slaver of the steamer Sarah Dixon saves time in making his trips by cross ing the prairie Instead of winding up the crooked slough and river. "There iB from 10 to 15 feet of water on the prairie, and it has caused consid erable damage," said Captnint Slaver. "The flood has swept away between 12 and 15 houses and oarna. We passed a two-story house which had gone aßhore on Bachelor island. Kalama, St. Helenu aud Rauior are under water and paseengorß are landed and taken aboard in small boats.

Investigation among the workmen on the Peruvian Central railroad has brought some curious facts to light con cerning the capabilities of men to labor in rarefied atmosphere. Tho line starts at Lima, in latitude 13 degrees, and the highest point reached by the road is at the tunnel of Galeria, which is 15,645 feet above sea level. Prom deduotions made by the investigators, it appears that the men were able to perform a fair "sea level" Oay'swork at any place aloug the route where the altitude was not greater than 8,000 or 10,000 feet, providing they had gradually worked up to that height from lower levels. At altitudes above 10,000 feet and under 12,000 tho amount of work performed by each man showed a sudden falling off of from one-fourth to one-third, and at from 13,000 to 15,000 feet 100 men could do no mcro work than 50 would at sea level.—St. Louis Republic.
