MUNOt FAKDO.HD, The Governor Makes Good TJ.e of His Power. Sacramento, July 26. — Governor Markbam today pardoned Manuel Mi nos, who had been sentenced to one day's imprisonment at San Qaeatin for furnishing liquor to an Indian. He was tried and convioted in San Bernardino coanty on Tuesday. Judge Campbell, the sentencing judge, writes tbe governor asking the pardon and the removal of the disabilities co that the stats will not be put to the ex pense of conveying the prisoner to San Quentin to serve out a 24-honra' sen tence. It appears that he had been in tbe country but four days, having crossed the line from old Mexico one day last week, and was not familiar witb the laws of this country. He was resting by the roadßide when an Indian squaw came along and asked him for a drink, and be gave her a drink of angel ica wine. Immediately some deputy constables pounced upon him and took him to jail. Tbe last legislature made the offense of furnishing liquor to Indians a felony, leaving tbe court no discretion. The Mexican pleaded guilty, and aa it was a state's prison offense the court sen tenced him to one day and then secured tbe pardon. INDIGNANT 'WEALERS. INDUSTRIAL ARMIES DESERTED BY THEIR LEADERS.

Wherever tbe ground wae already dry the growing corn has has been baked. Where there was any moißture left there is still hope for the crop. A rain in 24 or 36 hours would be worth a great deal of money. Small grain bas been harvested generally and will not Buffer. Potatoes are faring bet ter than corn. The latter crop is just I setting in the ear and ia therefore mare i susceptibla to heat. News from Cbadron says rain fell jnst after 0 p. m. The temperature there reached 105.

Senator Foley of Nevada Murdered by a Wwman. Runo, NaT., July 26.—Mrs. M. A. Hartley tbig evening shot and killed State Senator M. D. Foley. The cause of the shooting is not known. Mrs. Hartley is an artist nr.'. has rooms in the Bank of Nevada building, where the shooting occurred. Foley was shot iv the stomach and died in half an hour. Mrs. Hartley has been arrested. The shooting of Senator Foley caused the greatest excitement here, as he is one of tbe moßt prominent men in the state, having occupied a conspicuous place in politics and having been presi dent of the Bank nf Nevada. Mrs. Hartley, when asked to make a state ment, eaid she had nothing to say, ex cept that she bad shot Senator ruler and intended to do it. She had known Foley sioce last October. Mrs. Hartley is a widow. Dr. Phillips, in whose office Foley died, eaid be beard two shots. He stepped to his office door and saw Foley iat the bead of the stairs. Foley waved his hand at Mrs. Hartley aud ordered ber back. Then he walked into tbe doctor's office, announced that he had been shot and became nnconccious, dying in 20 minutes. Only Foley and the woman were pres ent at tbe time ol tbe shooting. He made no ante-mortem statement and she declined to cay anything except that she tired tbe shot.

PEOPLE'S PARTY IN CONVEN TION IN THIS CITY-BUT LITTLH BUSINESS WAS TRANSACT!;!! YESTERDAY. PRICE FIVE CENTS. GREAT IS GROVER So Says Senator Vilas. A Labored Defense of the President. Gorman's Charges Denied in Detail, Vilas Withdraws His Sugar Amendment. The Republicans Immediitely Renew Ir. Hill's llotion for Free Coal anl lion Defeated. Senator Stewart Criticises the F.x ecntive. The Tariff Bill Not T.t Sent Back te Coaferenco—Demoeretlo Honae Delayed by Kapnbllcaa Tactics. Bj ths AMOcUted Press. Washington, Jnly 26.—Republican tactics prevented tbe Democrats of the senate from potting into effect toda, tbe programme arranged in the caucus yesterday. Tbey did not succeed in getting tbe bill back into conference ai tbey hoped to do, bnt tbey cleared the way co far as they were able to do, hav ing Senators Vilas and Caffery to with draw their motions for the inttrnction of the conferees, and by voting down Senator Hill's motion with the aid of the Republicans. But for the fact that the Republican side of the chamber took up Mr. Vilas'idea, the bill would have been referred back before the close of tbe day's session. The Democrats are not worried over Senator Washburn's motion (wbich has the same end in view aa that with drawn by Senator Vilas), because tbey claim Vilas will not vote with tbe mi nority to lay Waabbnrn'a motion on the table. The Democrats, while not admitting ell the Republicans claim, are giving the question of keeping their forces in line the most careful attention. If tbe one-eighth of a cent differential were stricken out, tbe effect would be very demoralizing, and the experiment ts one which tbey will go to any legitimate length to avoid at this juncture. There is little hope that the Republi cans wiil be able to strike ont the one eighth of a cent differential on engar. It is understood Stewart (Popnliet, of Nevada), whose vote ia necessary to carry the proposition, will not vote with them. Senator Vilas, who was secretary of the interior and later postmaster-gen eral, during Mr. Cleveland's first ad ministration, replied today to Senator Gorman's attack upon the president. For two hoars he held the floor amid the rapt attention of the eenate and gallerieß, delivering his acatbing rebuke of the Maryland eenator. He denounced Mr. Gorman's assault as wanton, reck less and unjustifiable, and though he de clared Mr. Cieveland needed no defense at bis hands, he took up seriatim, tbe charges made by Mr. Gorman and met them with masterly skill and logic. He made his statement, he said, in tbe in terest of the truth of history. Mr. Gor man was not in the senate at tbe time and to tbis fact the Wisconsin senator called attention with regret. Iv conclusion he eulogized the per sonal character and publio integrity of Mr. Cleveland in the moat glowing terma, declaring with dramatic fervor that the president of the United States, who had received*so many evidences of tbe honor and respect of tbe people, could not suffer from this attack of tbe Maryland senator. At the conciueion of hia speech, Mr. Vilas explatued that, in view of the fact that Messrs. Gorman and Suiith had assured him that his motion to recede from the one-eighth differential in favor of the refiners of sugar must fail, and the further fact that a Democratic cau • cue had decided to agree to a farther conference without instructions, he would withdraw the motion. After some general remarks by Mr. Stewart against the interference of the executive with the legislative branch of the government, Mr. Hill's motion that the senate recede from its amendments placing a duty of 40 cents a ton on coal and iron ore was voted on and defeated, the Republicans, except Mr. Hans brough of iSerth Dakota, joining witb tbe Democrats bound witb the caucus agreement against it. The vote stood 6to 63 and 6to 64. Mr. Irby of South.
