TWENTY-FIFTII YEAR. NO. 205.
THE FIFTY-FOURTH CONGRESS Saturday's Session Sees Much Business Done THB NEEDS OF THE NAVY Fall to Induce the Senate to Indulge in Extravagance After Declining to Make Many Propeaed Amendments tha House Passes tha National Bankruptcy Dill Associated Presa Special Wire. WASHINGTON, May 2—After a week's debate, which has taken a wide rango, the senate today passed tho na val appropriation bill. The entire day was given up to the subject. A large part of the time set apart for general debate was devoted to political ques tions foreign to the Immediate question. ■llie bill as passeil is substantially us |t was reported from the committee on appropriations, except the reduction of the number of battleships from lour to Jwo and the numebr of torpedo boats rom fifteen to thirteen. An amendment was adopted provid ing for the construction of three of the torpedo boats on the Pacific coast. The Senate refused to decrease the number of seamen authorized by the house bill. Mr. Chandler's amendment directing the secretary of the navy to examine Into the merits of methods of propelling ships by direct action upon the water was agreed to. The consideration of Mr. Chandler s amendment providing for twenty tor pedo boats at a cost of $4.000,000 was then proceded with. Mr. Wolcott said that he had ben im presed by Mr. Gorman's plan for econ omy. There was a fair prospect that the unfortunate Venezuelan incident would end peacefully and he thought the administration's wise conduct on the Cuban matter had avoided the prob ability of war with Spain. He was op posed to the amendment. Mr. Hawley said it was ludicrous to talk of a war of aggression by this coun try, but that the navy was shamefully deficient in its essential particulars. Mr. Lodge complained that the navy had been selected for the exercise of economy when other appropriation bills had been allowed to go through without objection. He said the danger of trou ble on account of Cuba was not past, and by preparing ourselves for the pre servation of the peace we might dictate the policy of the American continents. Mr. Gorman, in reply, contended that the naval bill furnished the first instan ces of appropriations not necessary for the support of the government. He de clared he had taken the same position on the bill that he would have taken un der a Republican administration. He ■aid that a year ago the secretary of his assistant had gone into the newspapers and denounced him (tiorman) person ally. This might have been on account of the interest the administration was taking at that time in the Maryland elections. Mr. Sherman said this country was in no condition to undertake any unneces sary expenses and the house had made sufficient provisions for torpedo boats. He thought there was no occasion for any Increase, as there was no prospect for war with any power. Mr. Gorman demanded the ays and nay* on the Chandler amendment. The vote re sulted. 23 yeas. 29 nays. The committee amendment? for thir teen torpedo boats was then agreed to. Three are to have a maximum speed of thirty knots, not to cost exceeding $SOO. --000, and ten goats to cost not exceeding $500,000. These are lv place of the fif teen torpedo boats provided for in the house bill, five of which were to have a speed of 2fi knots and to cost $575,000, and ten boats to cost JSOO.OOO. Mr. Squire offered an amendment pro viding for the construction of three ot the torpedo boats on or near the Pacific coatst, which was agreed to. The committee amendment authoriz ing the secretary of the navy to contract for the building of two submarine tor pedo boats of the Holland type and not exceeding $175,000 was agreed to. After considerable discussion the sen ate refused to agree to the committee amendmei t striking out the house pro vision for an increase of 500 men in the marine corps. Mr. Bacon. Democrat of Georgia, of fered an amendment which was agreed to providing that bids for armor for vessels shall not be received If they ex ceed $350 a ton. An amendment was offered by Mr. Allen providing that one of the torpedo boats shall be built on the Missouri river. Agreed to. Mr. Gorman offered nn amendment reducing from 1000 to 500 the number of additional enlisted men for the navy. Lost —yeas, 23; nays, 27. Mr. Gorman said he did not wonder that the senator from New Hampshire was favorable to Increased appropria tion, as a portion of the increase would be required to keep the Republican party ln power ln Maryland ln the near future. An amendment offered by Mr. Hate was agreed to. providing for nn investi gation of the claims of contractors who constructed battleships and who suf fered losses through no fault of their own. In speaking of this amendment Mr. Allen took occasion to declare that the whole bill was "reeking with favoritism and Jobbing from top to bottom, in the center and from cuticle." The bill was then passed. Mr. Frey gave notice thnt he would ask to have the river Rnd harbor bill taken up Monday. The senate then went Into executive session, and ot 5:50 adjourned. IN THE HOUSE Tha Henderaon Bankruptcy Bill Passed After Lorg Debate WASHINGTON, May 2.—The house W-day, after five days of debate, passed the Henderson bill to establish a uni- J2 rm system of bankruptcy, by a vote of 157 to 81. The majority in favor of the bill was greater than Its friends antici pated, and was owing largely to the fact that quite a number of members who desired, only a voluntary bankruptcy bill, after being defeated, voted for the measure as reported. There were but i«. o a,.^SLwi m !5 tß ' one Important, the the non -Paymentof a note ™? hfVi days an ttct of bankruptcy. The bill as passed Is based upon the Torrey bankruptcy bill, which has been urged before congress for several years It prodivdes for both voluntary and In voluntary bankruptcy. Under Its terr s there are eight acts for which adebtor eTa b s e fon r o C w S: int ° V ° ,Untaiy b —£ T t— V P ersot > has concealed him self for forty-eight hours, with Intent to defeat his creditors Failed for thirty days, while insolvent to secure the release of any nronertv levied upon for $500 or over propert y Third—Made a transfer of any of his COMPOSITE PICTURE OP THE QUEENS -After the San Francisco Examiner. property, with intent to defeat his creditors.

Seventh—Secreted any of his proper ty to avoid its being levied upon under legal process against himself. Eighth—Buffered while Insolvent an execution for $500 or over to be re turned, no property found. On motion of Mr. Spaulding, Repub lican of Michigan, the ninth act of the bankruptcy bill as defined in the bill, was stricken out, as follows: "Suspended and not resumed for thirty days." Mr. Hepburn, Republican of lowa, de nounced this as a fraud on its face. An amendment offered by Mr. Mahon, Republican of Pennsylvania, to compel the petitioners to any voluntary pro ceedings to file a bond sutllcient to cover the demands and costs in case the peti tion is dismissed, was adopted, 48 to 43. W. A. Stone, Republican of Pennsyl vania, moved to strike out the invol untary features of the bill. Defeated, 72 to 102. Various attempts to strike nut certain acts of bankruptcy pro vided ln the bill were also defeated. Mr. Henderson, ln charge of the bill, closed the debate, and at 8 ocloek, under the special order, the bill was reported to the house, where, under the agree ment. Mr. Bailey, Democrat of Texas, and Mr. Rroderlck, Republican of Kan sas, offered two substitutes, both for a voluntary system of bankruptcy. Mr. Bailey's substitute was defeated on a rising vote. 89 to 120. Mr. Broderlck's substitute, which was substantially In favor of a voluntary system of bankruptcy, as reported by the senate committee, was defeated on a yea and nay vote, 112 to 128., Mr. Stone moved to recommit the bill to the judiciary committee, with in rtructlons to report the bill back amend ed so as to confine the involuntary fea tures of the bill to cases of actual fraud. The motion was lost, 88 to 110. The bill was then passed. Mr. Turner, Democrat of Virginia, called up the contested election case of Thorpe vs. McKinney from the Fourth Virginia, district. The report was unani mously in favor of the contestant, Mr. Thorpe, and without opposition it was adopted. Mr. Thorpe was then sworn In. During the debate Mr. Hltt, chair man of tbe committee on foreign affairs, called up and passed without objection the senate bill passed yesterday appro priating $75,000 for the expenses of the Bering sea commission in its delibera tions at San Francisco. At 5:15 p. m. the house adjourned.

THE HERALD LOS ANGELES. SUNDAY MORNING. MAY 3, 1896.—TWENTY-FOUR PAGES. IN THE KAISER'S REALMS Rumors of a Cabinet Crisis Again Current HOHENLOHE'S RESIGNATION Slated to Greet the Emperor on His Return Had King Otto'a Birthday—Dr. Langheld In. •lata on the Efficacy of Hia Cure for Consumption Associated Press Special Wire. BERLIN, May 2.—Rumors of another cabinet crisis have been current throughout the week, and some of the newspapers have even gone to the ex tent of perdicting the resignation of the imperial chancellor, Prince Hohenlohe, and the minister o war, Gen. Bransart Schellendorf, upon the return of the emperor to this city. The cause of the conflict is said to be the proposed reform of the military tribunals. Ac cording to information obtained from inner circles, the following is the posi tion, the military court procedure Is an tiquated, dating from 1848, and is full of abuses. Publicity is rigorously refus ed and the trials are only conducted in public ln the case o the Bavarian army. Gen. Spitz, who Is looked upon as likely to be appointed president of the imperial court-martial, drafted a bill to remedy these defects and the measure outlined was approved by the cabinet and the bundesrath. The bill is now before the emperor, who so far has not come to a decision regarding it. The king of Saxony, whose counsel Is great ly valued by the emperor, oposes the bill and so does Gen. yon Hahnke, chief of the military cabinet, and Lleutenant- General yon Plossen, who is the em peror's favorite aid-de-camp. In spite ot this opposition it Is believed to be likely that the emperor will approve the bili. He is, however, greatly annoyed at the press campaign on the subject, which is looked upon as Intended to put him at variance with the cabinet, and the more so because he half belielves that the projected reform wil weaken the dis cipline of the army. It is an undoubted fact that Prince Hohenlohe's health is shattered. He cannot attend to his duties in the relchstag and bundesrath and his res ignation of the office of chancelor can not be far distant. But the emperor Is unable yet to decide upon his successor. Count Philip yon Eulenberg, Gen. yon Waldersee and Gen. yon Alvensledon are mentioned as Prince Hohenlohe's possible successor. The two last named are commltlted to military reforms. The emperor and empress, after at tending the Frankfurt and Berlin peace Jubilees, propose to visit Duke Ernest Gunther of Schleswlg-Holstein, brother of the empress, at his estate, the chat eau of Prunkenau, in Silesia. This event will publicly mark the complete reconciliation of their majesties with the duke, who has been ln disgrace for over a year past. His majesty will after ward make another trip to northern seas. In consequence of persistent reports of the discovery of valuable gold, copper and coal fields ln the northern part of Africa, an expedition has been fitted out to proceed to that part of the world and thoroughly Investigate where the discoveries have been made. The ex pedition will be absent eighteen months. Prince Ferdinand of Bulgaria will re side at the Schloss during his stay in this city. He is being shown more than us ual attention. The forty-eighth birthday of the mad King Otto of Bavaria was officially cel ebrated by the court at Munich on Mon FAIR FIESTA QUEENS OF CALIFORNIA day. The king is thinner and has be come quite tractable, but is quite im passive Lu.-Jiia suivuuundings. The phy sicians in attendunee on the king- thirk he may live to an old age. unless a blood vessel in the brain suddenly bursts. The idea to formally declare King Otto's reign closed and crown Prince Luitpold. the regent, as king of Bavaria has again been abandoned on the advice of the em peror and kings of Saxony and Wurt emburg. Count yon Caprivl, the ex-chancellor, came to Berlin this week, looking like j a country squire. He had grown a full t beard, wore a black slouch hat and car ried a heavy cane. He made no visits and none were paid to him. The old report that M. Herbette, the French ambassador to Germany, Is to be recalled, is again revived. Dr. Langheld, the discoverer of the mlcroblco against consumption, is soon to publish a history of his discovery and details of his treatment. Dr. Langheld's preparation retains ozone unchanged after a long exposure to alr.and the ozone is introduced into the blood and exercises a strong antl-microblc Influence. He has treated successfully advanced cases of consumption and his treatment is now employed in the charity hospital. Dr. Langheld is the son of chief naval chaplain at Kiel. He Is not thirty years old and has traveled in East Africa. Bra zil and Venezuela for several years, studying many interesting features of his profession. Many German physicians are skeptical as to the efficacy of anti-mierobice, and others warmly praise Dr. Langheld and are trying to interest the government In the discovery. The audience of Mr. Edwin F. T_ T hl, the United States ambassador to Germany, with Emperor William, which was post poned owing to the arrival here of Prince Ferdinand of Bulgaria, is now fixed for 3 ocloek tomorrow afternoon at the Schloss. Mr. Uhl will be accompanied by the Fnited States charge d'affaires, Mr. .Tohn B. Jackson, bearing the new am bassadors' credentials, and both Cap tain Evans, the military attache of the embassy and Mr. Herbert O. Squires, second secretary of the embassy. The rehearing of the case of the Amer ican Insurance companies will occupy l several months and further time must elapse before a decision can be arrived at. The Count Posdowskl, secretary of the imperial treasury, announced in the relchstag today that the government did not Intend to propose a conversion of the German imperial loans during this session, as the conversion would lead to a good deal of German money going abroad to be replaced by doubt ful foreign paper. Emperor William on Saturday at tended the festival of the Berlin acad emy of arts in commemoration of the two hundredth anniversary of its foun dation. After expresiug pleasure at being able to receive the loyal congrat ulations of the academies in person, his majesty said: "This day my heart is moved by a feeling of deep thankfulness to King Frederick I. of Prussia, tho founder of the academy, and toward his successors, who fully recognized the en nobling influence of art over the people and with keen sight and protecting hand prepared and smoothed the way, even in times of sorrow and tribula tion for the prosperous development and cultivation of national art. That, the latter has attained its present high position is in no small degree due to the faithful work of the academy, which Impresses deep thanks." Continuing, his majesty expressed confidence that the artists of the present day would uphold the ideals of the past and assured them that they could thus depend upon his protection and good will.

DELEGATES ARE ELECTED I And Make Known Their Presi* dential Preferences M'KINLEY IS THE FAVORITE Of Delegates Chosen in Pacific Coast States So (treat la Hia majority That Other Candi date* Are Not Seriously Considered by Practical Politicians Associated Press Special Wire. SAN FRANCISCO, May 2.—The Ex ' amlner tomorrow will say: A careful inquiry has been completed by this pa per as to the way in which the Pacific slates will vote at the Republican na tional convention to be held at St. Louis. The canvass shows that William McKin ley Is by long odds the favorite candidate for the presidential nomination and will leceive most of the votes of the far west ern states and territories. Indeed, othre candidates are not seriously mentioned by the practical politicians or the con ventions of the electors in genera!. The only break comes on the silver question. In this regard some delegates may throw their strength to a radical free coinage candidate, should he appear, but as be tween McKinley and any other of the men now ln the fight, the Ohloan will be preferred. The roll call may fairly be arranged a<s follows: Arizona—Six delegates: regular dele gation for McKinley, contesting delega tion divided. Callfornia-<-Eighteen delegates; cer tainly for McKinley. Colorado—Eight delegates; doubtful because of the silver question. Idaho—Six delegates; doubtful; one faction for McKinley, another demand ing a radical free coinage candidate. Oregon—Six delegates; for McKinley as between him and any other candi date thus far named. Nevada—Six delegates; for McKinley as between him and any other candi date thus far named. New Mexico —Six delegates; certainly four votes for McKinley. ITtah—Six delegates; prefers McKin ley to anyo ther candidate yet named, but stands for free silver. Washington—Eight delegates; divi ded, with sentiment more strongly in favor of McKinley than any other can didate. STATE POLITICS At Santa Cruz the Republican county convention selected delegates to the s:ate and sixth congressional conven tions and instructed for McKinley. At Paso Robles the Republican con vention of San Luis Obispo county elec ted the following delegates to the state republican convention: E. Ladner. G. Tognazzi, C. H. Reed, M. Harlow. J. C. Gibson, Dr. J. H. Glass. Smith Shaw and W. M. John. The convention endorsed Maj. McKinley, "the people's choice for president." At Salinas the Monterey county Re publican convention elected John T. Porter, A. B. Jackson, Charles rancee, M. Omyer H. E. Kent, Hiram Corey, T. J Field, M. M. Gragg. C. T. Romle dele gates to the state convention. A reso lution was adopted endorsing McKlnley for president. The financial resolution is as folows: "We are in favor of the 1 unlimited coinage of silver by the govern ment Independent of any international agreement." There was an enthusiastic meeting | of the Sacramento McKinley league last night, at which it was shown that the j Ohio man's friends have practically cap- I tured everything in sight. Secretary Thorpe gave figures to show that he had ' heard from 318 delegates who are to par ticipate in next week's convention, and that out of this number 270 were for Mc- Kinley. These did not represent the del egates from San Francisco and Los An geles. He had private advices from the latter place indicating that tho delegates from there would insist upon sending a McKinley delegation to St, Louis. At Ventura the sixty-ninth assembly district convention elected as delegates to the state convention B. S. Hall, E. O. Oerberding, W. H. Barnes, J. R.McKee, AY. D. F. Richards and J. R. Willoughby, nnd Robert Fenn at large. The conven tion instructed for McKinley and refused to instruct or endorse for McLachlan for congress. Tbe A. P. A. made a fight, but only elected two out of the seven dele gates. The fight for Instructions by McKinley's friends was very bitter. At Placervile the Republican county convention elected J. S. Larue B, W. Wit mer. B. M. Cope, Frank Nichols, John Davy and W 111 am Yeaden as delegates to the state convention. A resolution was adopted in opposition to any railroad funding measure that may be proposed and condemning the course of Represen tative Johnson. The delegation is un pledged except In support of J. H. Neff and E. C. Voorhies for delegates to the national convention. McKinley was the unanimous choice of the convention.

PIIICE FIVE CENTS IN THE QUEEN'S DOMINIONS Rumors Regarding Assassina tion ol Persia's Ruler TRANSVAAL DEVELOPMENT Leads to Demands for Punishment ol Implicated Officials London Snortlnz Men Do Not Take Kin 11/ to the Suggestion of an Interna tionjl Foot Racs Associated Press Special Wire. LONDON, ;,lay 2.—1 Copyright)—A Til'lis dispatch sajs that immediate./ after the death of the shah, heir appa: • ent (VaiitiiaU) Muzafar Ed-Din wtis proclaimed shah. Russia and Great Britain recognized Muzafar Ed-Din ua heir to the Persian throne in 1858. Tl grand vizier will govern until the a - rival ot the new shah at Teheran froi.a Tabriz. It is rumored In this city that the as sassination of the shah was brought about by the machinations of his oli'. est brother, Massoud Mlrzla, governor of Ispalian. The latter was born in is.",o. while the new shall, second son of the deceased monarch, was born in ISS '.; but tlie latter is an offspring of a wife of higher rank and thus was chosen to succeed his father in place of Massou 1, his elder brother. He has often re buked Mlrzla for his unruliness and In ISSB recalled him nnd only allowed hlu to return to Ispahan alter disbandli < some of tl;e regiments and ordering hi ill to pay more than tie* usual tribute. Massoud Mirzia, who is known as tl.a Zilles sultan, or Shadow of the King dom, resented this treatment and it wus believed tiiat lie might make an ut tempt to usurp the throne. Massoud Mlrzla, who is enormously rich, is unpopular on account of his s-' --verity and Intolerance, and on the other hand Muzafar Ed-Din, the new shah, is much loved by the people of the pro vince of Azerboijan, where the Persian army is chiefly recruited. The discontent of the Babist sect, up on which Massoud Mirzia Is believed to have worked, Is due to the fact that tie late shah did not allow them toestabll: It their religion, his refusal to do so bed based on representations made to els majesty that it would conflict with t! c existing faith in Persia aud split tl.fl people into religious ructions. Tl c Babists have always been kept In chei k and little has been heard of them for sonic years pat.t. The disclosures made by the publica tion at Pretoria of the telegrams oap tured by the Boers when Dr. Jameson was made v prisoner continue to 1 c the leading subjects for comment in tl 8 press aud among people of all classes. Everybody seems to be waiting fcr events, and it is believed that sitll mot i startling developments are coming. Tl.e general public and Ihe newspapers i s a rule are heartily ashamed pf the whole business und are calling for the punish ment of Cecil Rhodes and his associ ates high and low. it is expected that the statement which the secretary of state for the col onies. Mr.Chamberlain, will make on the subject in the house of commons onMon day, wil decide the fate of the British Chartered South Africa company. The general opinion is that Its charter Will be revoked and that steps nil he take i to punish those who were concerned In organizing the raid in the Transvaal. It is recognized ou all sides that Presi dent Kruger is master of the situatio i and that Great Britain will have to steer most carefully to avoid a race war in South Africa. The Field, commenting upon the of fer of the New York Athletic club to j match T. P. Conneff against F. F. Ba con of the London Athletic club, the rec ognized champion mile runners of the United States and Great Britain, re spectively says fl at a number of is sues are Involved in "this cool tion of the New York Athletic club." and recites the story of Sweeney, the jumper, and the New York AtheltlC cluli inquiry into the, charge that lie was a professional, and concludes: "It is over seven months since the contest, but all that Is known Is that the committee on Inquiry has thrown the case up, and a new committee hns been ordered to be selected.
