BUFFALO, N. T„ April 2:!.—Before
Ihe Umpire Athletic club tuinght and in
Ihe presence of a large crowd Frank
Krne fought and whipped Lurry Burns
cf Cohoes.
Erne was greeted wltht cheers as he
stepped Into the rlns;. His husky op
ponent looked strong and formidable, |
and had a clever trick of raising his
shoulder that protected his neck and
jaw from Erne's fierce jabs. Erne, how
ever, drew blood from his nose and |
made several dents on Burns' frame In j
the ilrst two rounds. Burns stood him
off very well until the middle of tha
fifth, when Erne reaclied his jaw with a
right hand swing that floored the Cohoes
boy. He took nine seconds, and on ris
ing got a second swing ln the same
spot. Again he measured his length i
for the time limit and rose grtiggy.only
to be knocked down and out with a third
blow in the identical place. This time
he lay unconscious for live minutes.

Treatment of Indian Wards Pro
vokes Senatorial Debate
The House Asks for Information Re
garding Cuban Arrests
Consideration ot Pension Appropriations Pro
vokes Rancorous Debate-Early Ad
journment Discussed
Associated Press Special Wire.
WASHINGTON, April ii;:. — Several
minor bills were passed at the opening
of the senate today. Prior to taking up
the Indian appropriation bill, Mr. Call
asked for an agreement by which the
senate would take up hi? resolution di
recting the president to dispatch a naval
force to Cuba for the protection of
American interests, but on appeals not
to interrupt the Indian bill he withdrew,
stating that he would call up his resolu
tion later.
The Indian bill was then taken up, the
question being on Mr, Plan s amend
ment extending the services ot the
Dawes commission with the view of
making a rule ot tho Cherokee and
kindred nations. The committee is
given directions toward terminating tho
tribal relations of the Indian? und di
viding their lands in severalty.
The debate was protracted. In the
course of it Mr. Vest, Democrat of Mis
souri, spoke of the conditions in Indian
territory as constituting a national pest
house and a nuisance, a harbor of refuge
for criminals, depreciating property
in adjoining states one-third.
Mr. Jones, Democrat ot Arkansas
spoke vehemently against the rule of
crime and outrage i.i the Indian coun
try, and appealed to the senate to put
an end to it by this reformatory amend
Mr. Bate, Democrat o£ Tennessee, on
the other hand, spoke of the "Bummers,
land-grabbers and thieves seeking to
rob the Indians, and who would be given
further powers by this amendment."
Mr. Piatt declared that nowhere in
Russia. Armenia or Cuba, vnor:: brutal
and savage conditions exist than in this
Indian country. Five hundred white
men masquerading .is Indians had seiz
ed the property and government of the
Indians, making the experiment of In
dian relief government a failure. The
money appropriations for these Indians
were used ln hiring lobbyists to send
hero and prevent legislation
Mr. Piatt declared tnat he had never
during his senatorial service known of
the use of so much money on lobbying to
defeat legislation. It was time con
gress put an end to this ifoui blot and
disgrace on our national honor.
After further debate the presiding of
fcer ruled the entire amendment out
and the Indian appropriation bill as
thus amended was then passed.
The surdry civil appropriation bill
was then taken up with the understand
ing that it should not displace, except
temporarily, the bond resolution.
Messrs. Pettigrew, Cockrell and Tel
ler were named as conferees on the In
dian bill.
Bills were passed for an additional
circuit judge in the sixth judicial dr-,
cuit: appropriating 1600,000 for a public
building at Salt Lake City, and $188,000
for a public building at Olgden, Utah;
for the disposal of abandoned Fort Shaw
military reservation, Montana, under
the homestead mining law s.
At ti oclock the senate went into ex
ecutive session and soon ufter ad
Cuban Information Asked -Rancorous Debate
on Pension flatters
WASHINGTON, April The house
today, on motion of Mr. Talipot, Dem
ocrat, of South Carolina, unanimously
adopted a resolution calling on the sec
retary of state for all information re
lating to the arrest and imprisonment
in Cuba of Rev. Diaz.
Consideration of the Piekier general
pension bill was resumed antl Mr. Mr-
Clellan, Democrat, of New York, spoke
ill opposition to tho measure, as in
tended ns a Republican Sop to the sen
ators aud a reflection "ii the adminis
tration of (he pension laws by the pres
ent executive officers.
The best the majority could for the
old soldiers, he said, w as to bring tn this
bill, which proposed to put upon the
pension rolls the names of bounty jump ■
ers and men who had deserted (loin ihe
ranks of the confederacy.
Mr, Muhaney, Republican; of New
York, supported the bill arid re-iimnse =
upon the strange sight of a sun.of {ten.
George B. MeClellan standing on th ■
floor of the house opposing just mi to tin
men whom his father led to battle.
Mr. Mahaney then turned his atten
tion to the good taste of confederates
opposing pension legislation. Tie said
that six years ago he had witness,'.!
the reception given in the senate to Mr.
Reagan of Texas and postmaster-gen
eral of the southern confederacy, as he
today witnessed other confederates in
the iiouse like gentlemen from South
Carolina, blocking pension legislation,
while the men who saved the union werd
starving in the almshouses.
"I challenge the gentleman," shouted
Mr. Talbert. jumping lo his feet, "to
show- where i opposed a single bill
which my judgment did not tell me was
"I would be loth to accept the gentle
mun's judgment," replied Mr. Mahaney,
"on that or any other subject."
"And I would not accept your judg
ment:," retored Mr. Talbert. hotly. "I
desire to say." h eeontinued. angrily,
"that T am ersponslble here and else
where for what 1 say and do."
"f thought the gentleman was very ir
responsible at all times," retorted Mr.
Mr, Hager, Republican of lowa, made
n speech In support of the bill and Mr,
Mahon, Republican of P< nnsylvanla, In
the course of his remarks, reecrely
scored the administration, ascribing its
alleged hostility to the soldiers to the
loss to the Democracy of 80,000 votes In
"We will," said he, •never see another
Hoke Smith in the pension ofllce." Re
publican applause.)
Al "i oclock the house adjourned.
Republican senators held a brief enu
cus today. Senator Chandler suggest
ed that adjournment ought to be possi
ble by May is, and was supported in
this opinion by an almost unanimous
vote of the caucus. It was the general
opinion that the appropriation bills
should be kept to the front until dis
posed of, and no more adjournments
over Saturday are contemplated. Sen
ator Sherman was authorized, as the
chairman of the caucus, to appoint a
steering committee of nine to take
charge of the details as to order of busi
ness In case it was found possible to
consider other than appropriation bills.
Mention was made of several general
bills which it was considered Important
should receive attention before ad
journment, among them being the Pa
cific railroads, the bankruptcy, the im
migration and tho filled cheese hills.
But it was the general opinion that no
attempt should be made to get up any
of these at the expense of an appropria
tion bill and that they should be post
poned until the appropriation bills are
cut of the way. The order of their con
sideration will be left wholly to the
Steering commit lee. Considerable in
terest was manifested iv the caucus as
to the attitude ofthe Democrats on the
subject of adjournment, but no one was
able to give definite Information on this
point. It was staled, however, that so
far as individual Democrats had ex
pressed opinions to the Republicans,
they had expressed a wish for an early
adjournment. Senator Sherman ap
pointed Messrs. Allison, Aldrich, Hale,
Davis, Quay, McMillan, Dubois, Perkins
and Pritchard as the steering commit

Minister Willis Comes Home From
tbe Hawaiian islands
Denies That He Is Persona Non Orats to
Hawaii, and Will Return « hen Hie
Furlough Expiree
SAN FRANCISCO, April 23.—Albert
S. Willis, minister from this country to
the Hawaiian islands, arrived from
Honolulu todey. He ;'ays that he Is ln
ill-health, and with Ms family will go
to his old home In Louisville, to spend
his three months' leave of absence. He
denies absolutely the stories that he is
persona non grata with the Hawaiian
people or government, and says that
he was not summoned to Washington
upon complaint of the Hawaiian gov
ernment, and that no reproof has been
given by Secretary Olney for any act
ot his in Honolulu. Willis declares that
he has received nothing but kindness
from the Hawalians and declares posi
tively that he will return to his post at
Honolulu at the expiration of his fur
"The report that I slighted the Ha
waiians on Washington's birthday,"
said Mr. Willis, "is absolutely untrue. I
entertained no one at dinner on that
day, but President Dole of his own vo •
Ution sent the government band to my
home to play during the evening, So far
as my failure to observe the Hawaiian
republic anniversary on January 17th
is concerned, that is a matter which I
will discuss only with the state depart
ment. My position in declining to par
ticipate in the celebration was the re
sult of my careful consideration of the
orders under which Inm instructed to
represent the United States at Hawaii,
beyond the reach of the telegraph wire
and where I must often act without any
special consultation with the secretary
of state."
WASHINGTON. April 28.—Touching
the departure of t'nited States Minister
j Willis from Honolulu on the 16th in-
I stunt for the United States, it is learned
I that the minister was granted permls-
I sion long ago to take a sixty days' va
; cation from his post whenever he
i deemed the conditions warranted his
absenting himself from the Islands. If
' hit refusal to participate in the ceremo
j n:es attending the celebration of Ha
waiian Independence day. January 17th,
has been made a subject of official com
' plaint by the Hawaiian government the
'fact cannot be confirmed. Although
i Secretary Olney could not be commun
icated with respecting the matter, lt
is believed that if there has been such
complaint " has not >et reached the
state department, but remains to be
forwarded. There is good reason for
the belie that the administration felt
that Mr. Willis bad acted without prop
er consideration ln this matter, in view
o! the fact that the present Hawaiian
government has been officially recog
nized by the United Statesgovernment.
but there is nd evidence that the subject
has been the cause of correspondence
between the two governments, and as
to Mr Willis' return to Hawaii. It is
probable that it will be left to his own

WASHINGTON, April 23.—The con
ference for international arbitration,
which has been a very harmonious one,
closed tonight ln a mass meeting in
Allen,s opera house, in the course of
which President Elliot of Harvard se
verely arraigned the foreign policy of
President Cleveland and his fellow
townsman, Secretary Olney. The per
sonalities which President Eliot uttered
in cool and measured tones were so
pointed that they created quite a sen
The country had been surprised and
discouraged at the immense war spirit
had encountered, he said, and contin
"Only four months ago we saw by the
message of President Cleveland that
compulsory arbitration was to be en
tered into by two other nations. We
learned that months before the secre
tary of state had Issued from this capi
tal papers of most remark- /.enor,
which, betwen individuals, would have
seemed at least exasperating. These
papers tooa thousands of American cit
izens by surprise—surprise unintended,
perhaps, but inevitable. Then when
grave propositions were laid before the
legislative branch of the government
that we thought might be depended on
to consider them deliberately, we are
painfully surprised to see that such de
liberation could no longer be depended
" We have seen the phenomenon of
men employed as cabinet officers who
have had absolutely no experience in
public affairs.
' There has recently been an importa
tion from Europe of an idea utterly
repugnant to us, a modern notion called
Jingoism. A detestable word for a de
testable thing. 1 should be utterly at
a loss to know which party in this coun
try is the gravest offender in this re
spect, and I politically grieve that fore
most in this enormity aro sundry grad
uates of Harvard university. Can
anything be more offensive to indus
trious, sober, hard-working American
citizens than this chip on the shoulder
attitude, this brutality, coupled with
a despotic militarism."
Some applause followed these re
marks, but there was greater applause
when Bishop Keane, rector of the
Catholic university, began his speech:
"I am not here to blame the president
or congress. I don't believe it is our
purpose or our right to blame either of
them. But we, as American citizens,
nre free to say that it is a pity that
things are as they are. compelling the
1 resident and congress to talk of war
with another civilized nation."
The other speakers were J. Randolph
Tucker of Virginia and President Pat-
Inn of Princeton university, who de
clared that international arbitration
'would be enforced "by the gradual evo
lution of an international conscience."
Tho morning session was called to or
der by ex-Senator Edmunds. There
was a large attendance of delegates, but
the absence of congressmen ami gov
ernment officials was again noticeable.
Several sets of resolutions were offer
ed by delegates and referred to the com
mittee on resolutions.
Professor Moore's paper declared that
the establishment of tribunals of arbi
tration, even when they were not re
sorted to, would restrain from war.
President Gates answered the ques
tion: "Why should wej have a perma
nent tribunal?" One of his arguments
was that by arbitration chances of war
would be avoided, the party with the
best cause rather than the strongest one
would win.
Dr. Baohrnan said it iiail pleased God
to put the English-speaking people in the
front rank of the nations of the earth,
and that rank imposed the obligation
of leading in till the ways of peace.
A small bomb was dropped into tlie
conference by Mr. E. A. Smalley of St,
Paul, Minn., formerly a Washington
newspaper corespondent. Mr. Smalley
announced that he must dissent from tite
proposition that this country should
emulate the extension of Ureal Britain
over the world as an agency of i Iviiiza
tlon, but limit its own strength within
its present border. "The cry that for
us to establish ourselves as v sea power
among tin- na Hons of t he globe Is jingo
ism, I do not believe is the sentiment
oi tlie American people," he said, and
there was applause from many of the
delegates, while others raised a point of
order that was overruled by the chair
"We do not desire to retire from the
competition for commerce all over the
globe." he continued. "It is not jingo
ism to desire to accept the friendly nl
llenee of the .Sandwich islands.
"it is Idle to think that all nations w ill
lay down their arms and dwell like
brothers in a church. Most of the citi
zens of the United States favor the
movement in congress to increase our
! Cries of "No" and "Yes."
"Great Britain had built canals for
j sending her gunboats into the Great
Lakes and the United States had made
a mi. l take in taking no steps for her own
protection on the lakes."
Carl Sehurz of New York replied to
Mr. Smalley's argument. He contend
ed that if the United States was to be a
great sea power it must establish .a
navy as large as those of any IwoKu
j ropean powers.
I Are you ready for that yet.'" he
! asked, and was answered by cries of
• No." The United States should carry
: its ideas, its civilisation to all parts of
I the globe, lull not its guns.
President Angell of the University o?
Michigan presented the report of "th,.
committee on resolutions, which was
I as follows:
j This national conference of American
citizens assembled at Washington.
April 23, 1596. to promote International
arbitration, is profoundly convinced
that experience has shown that war as
a method of determining disputes be
tween nations is oppressive, uncertain
and unequal in its results and produc
tive of immense evils, and that the
Spirit and humanity of the age. as well
as the precepts of religion, require the
adoption of every practicable means for
the establishment of reason and justice
between nations, and the consideration
i that the people of the United States
laud the peopl of Great. Britain, bound
j together by tite lies of a common lan
guage and literature, of political and
legal institutions and of many mutual
interests, and animated by a spirit of
devotion to law and justice, have on
fntiny occasions by recourse to peaceful
and friendly arbitration, manifested
their just desire to substitute arbitra
tion for force in the settlement of their
differences and tn establish a reign of
peace among nations. That the com
mon sense and enlightened public opin
ion of both nations is utterly averse to
any further war between them, and
That the same good sense, reinforced
by common hope of humanity, religion
and desire, requires the adoption of a
permanent method for the permanent
adjustment of international controver
sies, which method shall not only pro
vide a uniform application of law and
Justice In the settlement of their own
differences, bo* '■hp! also by its example
and Its results promote tlie peace and
progress of the peoples.
Does hereby adopt the following reso
First—That in the Judgment of this
conference, religion, humanity and Jus
tice, as well as the material interests of
civilised society, demand the Immediate
establishment between Ihe United
States and Great Britain of a perma
nent system of arbitration.
Second—That it is earnestly recom
mended to our government, so soon as it
Is assured of a corresponding disposi
tion on the part of the British govern
ment to negotiate a treaty providing for
the widest practicable application of tbe
method of arbitration to international
Third—That a eommltte of this con
ference be appointed to prepare and
present tothe president of the United
States a memorial respectfully urging
the taking of such steps as will best con
duce to the end in view*.
A discussion arose over the question
whether other nations beside Great
Britain should be Included In te resolu
Mr. Graham of Virginia offered an
amendment as follows: "And that such
a system be as far as possible extend
ed to embrace other civilized nations."
The amendment was carried and the
resolutions adopted.
The committee selected to prepare a
memorial for presentation to the presi
dent was Messrs. , Edmunds, Angel!,
Gardiner Hubbard of Washinglon. ex-
Minister to Spain Curry and Henry
Hitchcock of St. Louis.
In the afternoon a reception was given
the delegates at the residence of Hon,
John W. Foster.
Ihe Freight Rate Deal la Off-Passenger
Question Pending
SEATTLE, Wn., April 23.—Much mys
tery has been excited In local railroad
circles because of the delay in sending
out the new transcontinental freight
rates, which were to go into effect May
), with a general advance of 115 per cent.
Private copies of the new raten w ere re
ceived by agents in this city some days
ago, but with the strictest injunctions
to secrecy. The mystery was solved
today by an authentic statement from
the east from a prominent general rail
road officer whose name cannot be used,
that the entire deal is off for the present,
the railroads having failed to reach a
satisfactory agreement.
CHICAGO, April 2;!.—The adjourned
meeting of the transcontinental lines
waa not held today owing to the tact
that the general imanagers and the
passenger agents did not get through
their labors on the mileage book ques
tion until late in the day. Tomorrow's
meeting will be resumed and there is a
probability that the trans-Missouri
roads and those east of the river will

The Bryan Murder Case
CINCINNATI, 0„ April 23.—Intercut
In the trial at Newport, Ky., for the mur
der of Pearl Bryan, grows more intense
daily. This is attested by the throngs on
I the lobbies, in the courtroom, the punc-
I tuul daily attendance of members of the
| bar from both sides of the river, and
i the unremitting attention of all pres
ent. Eleven witnesses were examined
today. The policy of the prosecution is
to present the case in order of time as
nearly as possible. The defense has
by cross-examination indicated that its
line will be to create doubt as to where
Pearl Bryan was killed, leaving it an
open question whether or not she was
killed in Ohio and afterward transfer
red to Kentucky, and there behedded, or
killed In Kentucky.

Col. Robert O. Ingersoll delivered on
Sunday last what, from a preacher,
would be considered a sermoh. and be
fore tbe congregation of a church, the
Militant church of Chicago, which is
/presided over by a brother with a
clerical title, the Key. Mr. Rusk. The
address was delivered in Hooley's the
ater because, probably, the church ht
which the Militant Christians worship
was not large enough to contain those
who wished to hear. To talk for a
, . hut eh and, so to speak, alongside of a
I minister, seemed a long step for Col.
I Ingersoll. but It is but Justice to say
that he took it with grace and dignity,
and when he was through there was
I not much in his discourse differing from
the ordinary leaching received by the
Militant church on Sundays from the
pastor thereof.
Col. Ingersoll said we must be good,
what everybody calls good, we must be
tolerant and merciful; we should favor
universal peace and the abolition of
war; we must foster and favor tha
home; we should build school-houses
ami support public and universal edu
| cation, and It would be better to cease
our hard and heavy work and have a
I bodily and intellectual rest on Sunday.
| There should be. Col. Ingersoll said, re
form In our prisons and penitentiaries,
which should be made schools and re
formatories, and finally "Brother" In
gersoll—it seems too distant and formal
to call him "Colonel"—said: "Let every
human being do all the good he can,
and let him bind up the wounds of hlo
fellow creatures, and at the same tiro*
put forth every effort to hasten the com
ing of a better day."
These observations of Col. Ingersoll
are very sound and were doubtles urged
with an abundance of all the oratorical
qualities, but somehow they seem
strangely familiar. A reference by Col.
Ingersoll to the facts that the grass la
green and the sky Is blue would hardly
be more trite. These maxims seem akin
to those embodied in a long ago dis
course usualy called the "Sermon on the
Mount," and a yet older deliverance to
mankind bearing the name of the "Ten
Commandments. This idea of every
man doing his best and so bringing on a
better day Is very old among men, and,
there can be no doubt about it, was
preached long centuries before Col: In
gersoll or any of us who now tread this
mundane sphere were born. It is a
good doctrine and men cannot by any
possibility hear it too often, but it is not
original with Col. Ingersolljior even
with the class of thinkers and reasoners
to which he belongs.
It may be said, further, that Colonel
Ingersoll was not alone in his Sunday de
liverance. Could a listener have been
connected by telephone last Sunday
with Hooley's theater and with all the
places of worship in Chicago, a confused
sound ot minister, priest and rabbi, mln -
sling their voices with that of Colonel
Ingersoll. would have come in upon him;
but, supposing each voice separateu
from the others like the strands of. a
rope, aud it would have been found that
each and every one was talking about
the "better day" that Is coming to tho
world, and how it may be helped forward
by love and mercy and forgiveness and
f nllghtenment, and even by healing and
developing not merely the souls but the
oodles of human creatures.
Perhaps every one of the speakers,
save Colonel Ingersoll would have said
last Sunday that he (the speaker) was
incited tn deliver his message by some
iellgious belief; not all by the same be
lief, but each and all by some belief
From this circumstance lt would seem
that Colonel Ingersoll and every other
man interested in the betterment of hu
manity should draw the Inference that
In the religions sentiment ln man is to
be found tho hope of man—the hope that
will keep him moving onward toward
the "better day." Colonel Ingersoll.
mdely and unjustly called "Pagan
Hob," is in accord with prophet and
priest as to what the world needs, and
so on the Sabbath day declares it. There
should be great advancement hereafter
of the consolidated forces, for in union
there is strength.
