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.
Superintendent Corey Continues Hi.
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
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."
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
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.
Engll.h Stockholders Secure the Ap
pointment of » Kecelver for the
' Harney I'enk Tin Mining
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.
London, June 29. —An order in coun

Dixon and Griffo Fight to
a Draw.
One of the Prettiest Contests
Ever Seen.
Twenty Hot But Indecisive Rounds
Reeled Off.
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
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.
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.

Mr. Egan said:
I anticipate before tbe close of the

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.
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
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
"We have held off on tbe Rock Island
road for certain reasons," said Mr. Debs,
"but tbe time has come when we must
act. When the managers of the road are
standing shoulder to shoulder, we must
do likewise. You may reßt assured that
there will be no more temporizing. 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.
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
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."
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
