ence reports were adopted, and bills were passed as follows: To allow the bottling of distilled spirits in bond; to expedite the delivery of imported goods in parcels and pack ages not exceeding $500 in value; to pro vide for the registration of trade marks on bottles, barrels, corks, and other re ceptacles used In Interstate and foreign commerce; to Incorporate the Ancient Swrtrty of Colonial Dames of America; for the general distribution of condemn ed -cannon by the secretary of war and secretary of the navy; to compel the at tendance of witnesses before the local land officers. Wee conference report on the bill to Improve the merchant marine engineer service was adopted, and the bill to con stitute Leadvllle, Pueblo and Durango, Col., sub-ports of entry, were passed. Mr. Evans explained the purpose of tbe bill to permit distilled spirits, four years old or over, to be bottled in bond. Such bottling would furnish an otlicial guarantee of the age and quality of the whisky and of other distilled spirits. The only whisky on the American market today with such a guarantee was bottled In Canada. The bill furnished Mr. Morse with a text for some remarks on the evil effects of whisky drinking, and Mr. Colson, Republican of Kentucky, on the spurious liquids sold under the name of "straight Kentucky whisky.'' Mr. Tate, Democrat of Georgia, crit icised the bill on the ground that it dis criminated in favor of the large dis tilleries. The bill was passed, 113 to 20. At 4:30 p. m., Mr. Henderson. Republi can of lowa, presented the special order for the consideration today and tomor row until 4 oclock of the immigration bills on the calendar. Mr. Bartholdt, Republican of Missouri, chairman of the committee on immigra tion, suggested in view of tbe devotion of almost the entire day to other matters, that an additional day be given for de bate. Mr. Henderson explained that tbe Rtress of business would not permit such an extension. Besides, he understood that Mr. Bartholdt was opposed to the immigration bills nnd did not represent his committee on the subject. Mr. Bartholdt denied this, saying he favored the bill for the application of an educational test. Mr. Hepburn, Republican of Iowa; Mr. Johnson, Republican ot California, nnd Mr. Daizell. Republican of Pennsyl vania, argued for more time, and Mr. W. A. Stone, Republican of Pennsylvania, and Mr. Lncey, Republican of lowa, argued against an extension. In the course of his remarks Mr. Hen derson predicted that congress would adjourn sine die between the 7th and 20th of June. After considerable sparring the reso lution was adopted. The house then adjourned. IN COMMIT'!'I iK. The house committee on ways and means today decided to report favor ably the bll to permit customs officials to deliver packages not exceeding $500 In value to express companies and other Inland carriers under bond after ap praisal on the wharves: jewelry and precious stones are excepted. It also authorised Evans (Kentucky) to call up In the fiouse, under suspension of rules, the bill to permit bottling spirits under bond in distilleries. The house committee on rules today decided to bring in a Special order for the consideration of the McCall Immi gration bill and amendment today and tomorrow. The McCall bill provides an immigration educational test and is sub stantially similar to the Lodge bill. The Stone bill, which provides for consular Inspection, will be offered as a substi tute. The rules committee also decided to give the committee on labor some time this week for bills reported from that committee. The senate has confirmed William Loehren as district judge of Minnesota, vice R. R. Nelson, resigned. The conferees on the river and har bor bill expect to have their first report ready tomorrow night. Of the senate house has yielded about one-half. The main question in dispute is the addi tional contracts authorized by the sen ate. The senate amendment authoriz izing contracts to the extent of (1,751,000 for Bayou Plaquemine, Louisiana, and the house provision of $315,000 for the Calcasien river, Louisiana, together with the Delaware river projects, the boat railway on the Columbia river and the Lakes Union and Washington canal ot Seattle, Wash., are still in dis pute. It Is quite probable that noagree-r ment will be reached on them at present. The conferees of the two houses on the naval appropriation bill were in ses sion together part of the day, but were unable to reach an agreement on the most important amendments offered by the senate, which are those regarding the number of new battleships from four to two. changing the provisions in regard to torpedo boats, restricting price to be paid for armor to $.130 per ton and pro hibiting officers of the navy from accept ing employment from persons who furn ish supplies to the government. All the other differences In the bill have been reconciled, A partial report will be made by the conferees tomorrow, and further instructions asked. The fight over tlie Santa Monica and San Pedro deep water harbor has been resumed in tbe conference over the river and harbor bill. The struggle over the Santa Monies provision ended In a compromise by providing for a com mission of five engineers, one from the navy, one from the coast and geodetic survey and three from civil life to be selected by the president. Opposition has been made in conference to have the three civil engineers named in the bill instead of being selected by the president. Some opposition has been manifested to this, although it is said a majority of the conference favors the commission. The California senators, learning of the proposed change, have secured a hearing before fhe conference today. Senator White will address the conferees and Insist that the agreement unanimously made in the senate shall not be changed. SIEBE DEFENDS San Francisco's Assessor Will Maka a Flint for His Office SAN FRANCISCO, May I?.—Assessor John D. Siebe must make a defense to the petition for his removal from office filed last week by A. J. I'lunie. Judge Wallace today overruled a de murrer to the petition and declared that the assessor must go to a trial on the merits. Clunle charges that Assessor Slope was guilty of a neglect of duty in as sessing the property of the Market Street Railway company at $3,800,000, when thetrue value of the property Is not less than $17,500,000. Siebe Is re quired to file an answer to this charge before 10 oclock tomorrow.

The se lection of a site for tbe home for invalid miners has been left to the executive committee. Congress and the state legislatures will be asked for aid in the establishing of the institution.

MINERS' HOPES The liners! Lands Bill Expected to Be Pasted SAN FRANCISCO, May 18.—Presi dent Jacob H. Nofiff of the California Miners' association is In the city for the purpose of attending an important meet ing of a special committee of the asso ciation at the Palace hotel tomorrow j night It is believed the mineral lands bill, now before congress, will soon pass ! that body and receive the signature of President Cleveland. The bill divides California Into four mineral land districts, and provides that the president of the United States shall appoint three commissioners for each district, one of whom, at least, shall be a practical miner and a citizen of Cali fornia. The duty of these commissioners will be to examine personally all lands the railroad may seek to have patented as being agricultural in character. The committee, at its meeting tomorrow night, wil select twelve gentlemen, whom it would like to have President Cleveland appoint as commissioners. These names will be presented to a full meeting of the California Miners' as sociation executive committee tomorrow night for its endorsement. The names then finally approved of will be sent to President Cleveland, with a request that be appoint them as far as he may see his way clear to do so. TRANSVAAL INVADERS An Oakland Man Says the Sentences Will Be Light OAKLAND, May I<!.—Capt. Robert Mien, a well known mining engineer, who wns among the members of the re form committee arrested at Johannes burg and accused of treason, has writ ten a letter to friends in this city ex plaining the situation and giving his views on tlie final outcome of the trou ble. He is an intimate friend of John Hays Hammond and of Harry Garth - waite of this city, who are In South Af rica. "The general impression as to what the outcome will be is that about half the committee will be let off free, writes ■ apt. Mien. "All others, save Phil lips. Rhodes. Farrnr and Hammond, will be lined lightly. These four will have a heavy line and be imprisoned, and after a month or two of imprisonment they will be banished from the country. A Judge from our neighboring state, the Orange free state, has been selected by the governor to preside at the trial. The jury will be entirely burghers of the country—Boers—and will probably be the most unintelligent lot of men who ever formed a jury in a civilized coun try. The outcome is awaited with acute interest here." Y. M. I.

EASTERN FRUIT A Promising Crop Almost Ruined by the High Wind NIAGARA FALI.S,N.Y.,May 18,-The great Niagara fruit belt has been se verely damaged by tin; terrific gale of wind which prevailed all day yesterday. The wind began early in the morning to blow strong from the west and by noon it was a howling gale which tor.' the young fruit off in clusters. The indica tions from the blossoms in the' orchards throughout this section pointed to one of the largest fruit cropß in years. The fruit formed splendidly. There has been no frost and fruit growers were congratulating themselves on the future when the gale came along and changed the aspect of affairs. Apples, pears and plums suffered the roost. So fierce was the gale that whole branches were torn from the trees. Small fruits escaped without much damage. it is estimated that half of the apple crop is lost and nearly as much in pears and plums. Peaches suffered some but nothing near to what the oth ers did.

THE ALASKAN GOLD FIELDS News Brought Back by the Steamer Albion RICH STRIKES ARE REPORTED By Miners Who Have Wiotered in the North Coal Bay Prospector* Report Finds That Will Put the Famoua Comstocu Lode In the Shade Associated Press Special Wire. PORT TOWNSEND, Wash., May ll.— The steam schooner Albion, Captain Lungulst, who recently took a party of tourists and miners from San Francisco to Cook's Inlet, Alaska, arrived from the north on her return trip today. The Albion's trip was uneventful both going nnd returning, and nothing of interest happened to relieve the monotony of life aboard the thoroughly seaworthy steamer Which kept forging ahead de spite the variable winds. Aboard tlie Albion as passengers were H. Pennock and Dr. Waller, members of the party which took the steamer Excelsior, the first vessel to arrive as far north as it was possible to go on account of heavy Ice. Her colony was the first to land at Coal bay, which has since jumped into prominence on account of the re markable finds of coal and gold which have been made there in the desultory prospecting that has been done by men while waiting the opening of naviga tion to permit them to proceed to their destination. In consequence of the dis coveries many of the men who were bound for Six Mile creek have determ ined to remain at Coal bay. where they expect to meet' with equal luck to that which will be tho portion of their more venturesome neighbors. The place where the men are encamped is a pleasant spot, entirely clear of w inter. Four miles away, however, there are glaciers and perpetual snow that give the country a c hilly aspect, while the Excelsior party lias thus far experienced no inconven ience from the weather. It was told the men that during the past w inter the thermometer has been 40 deg. below zero, but this can hardly be believed by those who are now en jcylng the pleasant atmosphere. Mr. Pennock, who was one of the directors and moving spirits of tbe Excelsior party Is enthusiastic with the luck he met with In the north and came back to civilisa tion to purchase sufficient supplies to keep the party at Coal bay for a couple of years. "As to the other sections of the coun try." said MAY Pennock today. "I have nothing to say. but if we have not struck a patch that will put the famous Corn stock wealth in the shade, then I miss my reckoning, We have located a limit less number of prospects, and if there is a square yard of earth within its boun daries that will not yield a dollar, then I'll confess to an untruth and give the fellow who catches me $1000. The moun tain has been figured out to pan $:', to the square yard, and we have miles and miles of it in our own. It Is easy to see that we will all make our fortunes out of it. That the entire country is rich there is not the slightest doubt, but a man to go there must take his chances and should not think of venturing with out first providing himself with a first class outfit, together with sufficient ready money to maintain himself while there, and, more important, to pay his fare home again should he not succeed.

Mr. Pennock tells an Interesting story of the Introduction of horses to the Start led gaie of the natives. He and two others of the party made a trip Inland on horses taken up on the Hxoelslpr. At the first Indian village they visited the sight of the horses drove all the dogs howling into the woods and the Indian children lied crying into the huts. Tho men and women stood their ground, al though in open-eyed wonder. After much Inducement they were finally prevailed upon to approach the horses, and their wonder knew no bounds at the strange animals. No amount of persuasion could induce them to mount them. In relation to the wonderful coal field, he says he never saw anything like It. With every tide the long beach Is liter ally covered with fine quality of lignite coal, and it was an easy matter for two men in an hour's time to fill twenty-five sacks from the mounds which were in evidence at every hand.

De Latin's guitar, banjo and man dolin club gave their tenth grand con cert last evening at the Southern Cal- . Ifornia music halt. An attractive and ambitious program had been prepared, ranging from tlio works of Beethoven and Wagner to those composers who have written especially for the light stringed instrument. It must be con fessed that the banjo, guitar and man dolin are more suited to such than to such music as the march from Tann haeuser Even the very skillful exe cution of Mr. De Lano cannot make the rendering ot Rossini's overture to Wil- i helm Tell on the banjo other than some- ! what grotesque. Excellent accomplish- , ment as the playing of the banjo is. de lightfui at the camp fire or as an ac- j companlment to comic songs, it is a i question how seriously it can be taken in music. The concert was enjoyed by a large and appreciative audience and provid ed amide evidence of the distinct pro cress Mr. De Lano's pupils are making.

FOR A FOURTH OF JULY An Enthusiastic Meeting Held Last Evening THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE Is Determined to Win for Itself a New Record It Will Be an OU-Tlmo Colebration. With Plenty of fluslc and Oratory—Fire works Conspicuously Absent _——. The executive committee on Fourth of July celebration held an enthusias tic meeting last evening in the offices of Captain F. J.

Major Redding, chairman of the com mittee having the matter in hand, re ported that a number of business men had been interviewed and that all had expressed themselves ready to assist In every way possible to make this year's celebration fur grander than anything of the kind ever had yet. H. Siegel suggested that as the time for preparing for the celebration was fust approaching, the com mittee follow as nearly as possible in the footsteps ot the committee of a year ago. t'pon his motion the rules of last year's committee were adopted. Captain Cressey objected to trade floats in the parade, He said there was nothing patriotic übout them and that they were always a source of much an noyance to the committee. It was de cided that there should bo no trade lloats. Major Redding urged that members of the press be appointed on some of the committees, and Mr. Wirschlng moved that a representative from each of the daily papers be appointed on the music, parade and finance committees, but the motion was lost. A press committee was created. The members w ill be appointed at tlie next meeting of the committee. On motion of Major Burton the mem bers of last year's executive committee were made honorary members of this > car's.

OIL ADVANCES AOAIN Those Who Palled to Lay la Stacks at Former Prices Are Left At the meeting of tbe directors of the oil exchange yesterday, the price of crude petroleum was given another jump, this time to $1.15 f. o. b., which equals $1 as it is pumped from the wells. This Is considered a feir price, and one ut which w ell owners can operate at a prollt. The action was taken upon the strength of a careful canvass of the total Supply on hand which has been taken during the past week and which shows the available stocks to be con stantly diminishing. I The exact figures are In the hands of the exchange, but will not at present be given out for publication. The ofll eers state, however, that there Is no doubt but that the state of the market warrants the advance, nnd that It is but a question of a short time until there will be little Surplus left. AVhen that I time comes oil w ill be sold at a price ( which its utility and ndvantageousness of use warrant, and while there will 1 be fewer producing wells.those that hold out will be able to return their owners a profit on their investment. Sales have been brisk at tho $1 mark and arc expected to hold out at the hlgh jcr rate. No news has as yet been re- I oelved or the Enoch Talbot, and Mr. I Botsford, her principal owner, having i grown tired of waiting for her, came down from Frisco yesterday and Im mediately took the train for Chicago, ; where he has Important business that : Imperatively called for his presence. It Is said that there will shortly be an attempt made to open up new territory I near the old Southern Pacific depot on ; San Fernando slreet. Maler & Zobeleln , will start a drill in that vicinity before ; ninny days, and n large amount of land , has been leased by different parties who think that there will be found the con . tinuatlon of the belt and a new field be j opened. Should this prove to be the j case and n flowing well be struck It would mean an Impetus for the Industry such as It has not yet seen Iv this city, and lead to a great enlargement along all lilies.
