Senator Blauchard is making consid erable trouble for tbe finance committee by Lie protests against the proposed changes in the sugar schedule. The Louisiana senator is holding out espe cially for the continuation of the bounty for the present year. He also calls at tention to the fact tbat the finance com mittee has backed out of its original proposition to abrogate the Hawaiian reciprocity treaty which adtuita tbe sugar product oi tbat country to enter free, and is reported as saying the sugar prodncsrs of his state would be greatly injured by the repeal of the bounty as proposed by the committee. He baa put forth toe claim that the pro posed change is in violation of the Democratic caucus agreement, and inti mated in very plain language that if the changes are made as proposed, the bill will not receive his support. ARMOR PLATE FRAUDS. Superintendent Corey Continues Hi. Teallniony. Washington, June 29.—Superitendent Corey of the Carnegie armor plate shops resumed his testimony today before the congressional investigating committee. He was questioned regarding the care which the officers from the navy depart ment gave to the inspection of armor work at the chops. He said one and sometimes two officers came to the shops every day except Sunday. They rarely came at night until after the investiga tion began. Ohairmsn Cnmmings asked Corey if bo knew that th» workmen presented a testimonial to Lieutenant Gill, one of naval inspectors. Corey oaid be did not. His own salary had been reduced since he had become superintendent of the armor plate works, and he had received no presents of money, stock nor other inducement from the company, except occasional suits of clothes. Representative Tnlbott asked Corey if be bad not made false reports on certain specified plates. He Raid he had omitted to fnrnisb cer tain features of work to the government officers. It had not amounted to false reports. He disclaimed knowledge oi Superintendent Cline's admission that he had changed reports in ordsr to keep the government officers from "fussing." BONDED BRANDY. Senator Whit.'a KfTorta to Iltrt tbe Period JKxtend.il. Washington, June 29.—From the state viticultural commission and grape grow ers in California generally have beon received a largo number of tele graph dispatches by Senator Whito, requesting him to do his utmost in deleDse of the extension of the bonded period for brandies and whiskies from thro to eight years. Undsr tho present law California brandies must be taken out of bond within three years, and this period is insufficient to mature them; conee auentlv nroducera. who are not usually LOS ANGELES,. SATURDAY MORNING, JUNE 30, 1894- men of great means, are compelled to put their product upon the market for whatever it will bring. Senator White has received a tele gram from Mr. Doyle, representing tbe state viticultural commission, advocat- ing the extension. In commenting upon this Senator White said that ho and Senator Perkins were the recipients of numerous dispatches of a similar tenor from leading California producers. He mentioned that there were operated in California during the fiscal year ending June 30. 1893, 280 fruit distilleries and tbat there remained on the latter date in the special bonded warehouses of California 818,000 gallons of brandy. He pointed out the impossibility of handling this product successfully within the three years at present allowed. He spoke of the pure character of California brandy, and men tioned the recent targe sale made by the S.anford eetate to European purchasers. He declared that the present contest was a fight inaugurated by the whisky trust, comprised of neutral spirit men, not manufacturers of straight whi9ky or brandy. He referred to circulars that had bean sent to congress, protesting against the extension, as having been concocted at Cincinnati and forwarded to rectifiers, great and small, all over tbe United States. THEY WANT TO KNOW WHERE THEIR MILLIONS WENT YOU KNOW. Engll.h Stockholders Secure the Ap pointment of » Kecelver for the ' Harney I'enk Tin Mining Company. New York, June 29.—Judge Lacombe has appointed Albert R. Latoux tempo rary receiver of the Harney Peak Tin Mining, Milling and Manufacturing company. The complaint accompanying tbe application for a receiver charges fraud against trustees ol the defendant company, Lewis May, James Flannagan, William M. Dean, William Nelson, George F.hret, Charles D. Desper, Her man Knubel, Liuis D. Weber. W. L. Flanagan, the estate of Fred erick W. Foote, the estate of Henry Clausen, jr., the estate of Daniel S. Appleton, Samuel Undermeyer and the Farmers' Loan and Trust company. Thecomplainautß in tbe suit are: Chas. Fieisher, Henry L. Maud, Charles E. Denny and John S. Fallon. The his tory of the case as told by the docu ments is as follows: and Manufacturing company was in corporated under tbe laws of this state on April 10, 1884, to do business in the Black Hills region ol Dakota. The prin cipal organizer of the company was James Wilson, and the directors were William M. Dean, Charles Desper, Her man Knubel, O. F. Berry, W.J. Russell, James Wilson and C. M. Field. An issue of 15,009,000 was made at once to purchase, as it is claimed, property worth only $17,000. On January 31st. a second issue of $5, --000,000 was made to Oliver F. Berry, as trustee, and the following year a third issue of a like amount to Henry Clausen. The English complainants afterward took part of the stock which they now say was issued to the trustees as % blind, and tbat tbe books were so juggled as to make it difficult to discover the fraudu lent conspiracy and gains which they al leged to have divided among a syndicate ol stockholders. The Englishmen who had invested $5,000,000, becoming BUBpicuous, sent over agents to investigate, and, it is al leged, found that the American owners had put up only $280,000 in cash for all the property. Not more than fGOO.OCO, it is said, had been expended in working the mines and building the mills, and the English want to know where their millions went to. The books of the company were seized at 33 Wall street this afternoon and sub poenas served on tbe defendants.

Griffo Had the Advantage In Weight But Could Not Kuoca Out Hie Du.ky Opponent—Both Badly l*uulahed. By the AMoclated Pren. Boston, June 29—Five thousand spec tators witnessed one of the prettiest fights ever held in this city, between Dixon and Griffo at the Casino tonight. Griffo seemed over-fat, and his heavy form created the impreesion that Dixon would have a hard tussle to win, but here is where the colored man again proved his gameneas and adroit tactics. He was cut, slapped and cut about tbe face by his heavier opponent, but on more than one occasion during the 20 rounds it looked as though his left baud would finish the Australian. Griffo is a great fighter and no mis take, and the impreesion was gained from the battle tonight that at any where near even weights the colore.! boy would win. Griffo tipped the beam at 135 and Dixon at 123. For the first few rounds Griffo was iv high feather, landing frequently and with effect. Dixon seemed wild, and wasted much of his strength swinging into the sir, while Griffo's movements were almost perfect, Bide-etepping and clinching in wonder ful style. In the eecund round ho was warned by Eckhardt that he must re frain from ruffing with his elbows tbe negro's chin. He did as requested and received no further instructions. He held tbe advantage up to the close ol the fourth round, but in the fifth Dixon did some hot rushing that did much damage. Both were fagged in the seventh, but Griffo had found Dixon's face and hit him repeatedly and brought blood. In the eighth Dixon caught Griffo full in the lace and they exchanged blowß rapidly, neither being much huit, up to and including the fifteenth round. I.UUUU put in uue uu urn tr>'B head and missed a wicked right for the jaw. In ducking to avoid the lat ter, Griffo was met with the half-arm swing of the left from the colored lad. Hound 17—Griffo met tbe first rush of Dixon with a stiff left-hander,' and the negro's head went back. He retired to the further corner, but returned with a rush, shot nut the left again and landed j on Grifi'o'e jaw. Round 18.—Again did Dixon catch his j opponent when he ducked. A clinch ! followed, and when the pair parted the ' fiesh over Dixon's lelt eye was cut and bleeding. He was fighting all the time, however, and before tho round was fin ished be bad more than evened matters. Bound 19.—There was a slight breath- I ing npell, and then a rush by Dixon, a I clever side-step by Griffo, and tho pair ! were again in the center of the ring, j Griffo waa firßt to lead, with a well ! measured right finding Dixan's jaw, while tbe darkey's left reached Grifi'o'e eye viciously. Hound 20—There was a furious two minute exchange of blows, in which the honors were divided, and then a walk around the ring. The pair had fought their fight of fights, and at the finish they shook hands and laughed good naturedly at one another. The referee declared tbe fight a draw. A BABY INCUBATOR. Little Mlaa Height.'. Cnrlous Advent Into the World. New York, June 29.—Little Miss Height, of 2SS Madison avenue, took her place in the outside world among ordinary mortals yesterday. It was on February 24th that this tiny bab ■ hero ; me of Edward Clarence Height first saw | the light of day, three months I earlier than she was expect |ed to arrive on earth, and to the sortow of her friends and family her advent proved the sad ending of her ! mother's life. It was determined tbat i science should be invoked to save this small bit of humanity, and accordingly ! a baby incubator was provided for the j reception of the little one. i To the many anxious oyes that have watched her for the past four months the sight ol the daily growth and pro gress of human development has been a wonderful one. Twice a day the wire j cradle waa carefully clipped to tbe edge of the glass doors, which were opened while the litt c lady's toilet was hastily made and a few drops of medi cated milk administered to the youngster. She stretched out her little iimbs, she shrugged her shoulders, yawned and plainly indicated that she had a will ol her own and would enjoy . exercising the female prerogative of having her own way. Under ordinary circumstances the i baby would have been born Moy 24th, j but now she has commenced her natural j life with a four months' novel expe j rience.

Thrown Ont of Emp loyment. By theAitoclated Pren. Chicago, June 29.—John M. Egan, representing the General Managers' as* eociation, furnished this evening an estimate of tbe number of men who had struck on the Chicago lines within the terminal limits, and also an estimate of the number striking on all the systems involved. Mr. Egan furnished the fol lowing to show tbe extent of the strike at the present time, and the number of men who have struck bo far in the whole country on the best information obtainable: Northwestern 1,420 Illinois Central 5.060 Jlasieru Illinois .'!»>/ Santa Fe 10,fl00 Chicago and Northern I aciflc 7 W if cousin Central 50 Ortat Meitern 30u Baliimoio and Onio 400 henuaylvania 2,. r >n Wenlern Indiana -00 Totil 17.850 Mr. Egan said: I anticipate before tbe close of the strike serious trouble. A large numb of tbe men have struck without under standing what they have struck for, and when they And their places taken by new men they are bound to grow des perate. I do not look for an easy ter mination of tbe strike, but we will cer tainly be prepared hereafter to eocv all the new men we wish and to bring about as early a termination of the strike as possible. We are in the light to sti and there will be no compromise i give up. THE AQGRBSSIVE POLICY. Chicago, June 29.—After the meeting of the general managers' association. General Manager Earling ef the C cago, Minneapolis and St. Paul said thvy proposed to pursue an aggressive potior. "It was determined at the outset," sa i Mr. Earling, "that we would have to fight this striks. All the roads repr sented have determined to secure men to take the places of those wbo have struck. New men are beiug employed now and they will be put to work under ample protection. Representatives from the various roads were received and con sidered, The Fort Wayne, Alton and Burlington reported that come of their men had struck since last night. We closed our shops at Milwaukee today owing to the present trouble. How long they will remain closed I cannot say. There is no truth in the rumor that Pinkerton men have been employed by the railroads to protect property and employees." THE ROCK ISLAND TO BE TIED UP. The Rock Island road, which is about the only one in Chicago to have escaped, thus far, will bo by tomorrow morniuj; tied up, it is said. An order to thai; effect was issued today by President Debs. "We have held off on tbe Rock Island road for certain reasons," said Mr. Debs, "but tbe time has come when we must act.

The Burlington is or will bo tied up, and the Rock Island will follow." Trains on the Rock Island have been running all right today, and officials ot the road say they will ruu tomorrow, boycott or no boycott. DEBS ISSUES AN ADDRESS. President Debs has issued an address to the railway men of America, setting forth tbe cause and objects of the pres ent strike. He says: "The struggle with the Pullman com pany has developed into a contest ba tween the producing classes and tbe money power of tbe country. This was what Lincoln predicted at the close of the war, and it was this reflection that gave tbe great emancipator his gloomi est forebodings. We stand upon the ground that the workingmen are enti tled to a just proportion of tho proceeds of their tabor. This, Pullman denied them." Continuing, he calls upon all working meD to refrain from acts of violence, and, in conclusion, says: "I have laitb in the great body of railway employees of tbe country and am confident tney will maintain an un broken front, in spite of any opposition that may be brought .to bear against them. lam perfectly confident of suc cess. We cannot fail." NOT AFRAID OF THE COURTS. President Delia said concerning the possibilities of his arrest by order of the United States courts: "I anticipate no trouble with the courts and 1 hardly see how I can be arrested until I commit or cause to be committed some orort act of violence against the lines which the courts now - perate. You will notice that Judge Caldwell says that we have a right to order men out on the Santa l'e. Me sty j . however, that as soon as the men leave the company's or tho cnurt'e employ they mu6t in no way interfere with the running of traius. Certainly tiiey will do that for they are under orders to resort to no violence. "Judge Caldwell admits that the men have a right l< quit work. That in what we contend for and therefore are satis fied with the court's ruling. The re ceivers' control over the Senta Fe is just tho same as a manager'--! p -war over any line. We realize ti.e importance oi avoiding toy tiouble with the govern
