Mr. Chandler appealed to Mr. Cannon
to withdraw his amendment, which seeks
to have the United States take the Ini
tiative and entire execution of the con
ference. The countries of the western
hemisphere, with the possible exception
of Canada, doubtless favored bimetal
lism, and it was tow ard the great nations
of Europe that friends of the conference
must look for co-operation. Mr. Chan
dler appealed also to Mr. Stewart not
to precipitate a general free coinage is
lue by urging his amendment directing
the mints to be opened for free and un
limited coinage within one month after
the failure of the conference 1 .
Mr. Stewart spoke of the futility of in
ternational conference. He opposed in
ternational money, saying II was not
jwcessary to commerce. He did not be
lieve in going to Europe, to the creditor
nations, to find out what money we
should use. It wns for the United States
to make its own determination as lo its
money standards.
Hoar of Massachusetts, Republican,
interjected a question, prefacing it with
the remark that he acquiesced with some
of the views Stewart had expressed, as
to the desirability of fixing our own
"But." queried Hoar, "after we had
established our ratio would it not bo a
good thing to persuade other nations
to do the same?"
"I think rot. 1 think It would be a
very bad thing." responded .Mr. St, w
"There we differ," added Hoar.
Stewart went on to say it would be
well to let Europe stick to gold. He clos
ed with the statement that ho would not
oppose the bill although he believed it
placed the United States in the humil
iating position of supplicating the crown
ed heads of Europe.
Bacon offered an amendment author

Progress Witii Appropriations —Some
Very Spicy Speeches
WASHINGTON, Jan. 2S.—The house
passed the Indian appropriation bill to
■ay and entered upon consideration of
*he agricultural appropriation bill, but
all Interest in these two measures was
overshadowed by two very remarkable
speeches, one made by Mr. Grosvenor of |
Ohio, attacking ex-Governor Altgeld of i
Illinois and the other by Mr. Dearmond
heaping ridicule upon Secretary Morton j
for the recent issue of a pamphlet en
titled The Farmers' Interest in Finance
Mr. Grosvenor's observations on the
governor of Illinois were called forth by j
the latter's speech last week, in which I
he charged Unit Mr. Bryan had been de- j
feated by fraud ar.d based his charge
particularly upon the enormous increase |
of the vote in Ohio, w here, he alleged.
90,000 votes were illegally cast. Mr.
Grosvenor was very personal in his al
lusions to Mr. Altgeld. laying at his door
much grave responsibility for the result
of the election. He declared that an ap
peal on the stump against Altgeldism
never failed to arouse the populace
where all else failed. He then analysed
the Ohio vote and explained the cause
of Its inerase. calling attention to the
fact that the Democratic vote in the
state increased proportionately much
more than the Republican.
Mr. Dearmond replied very briefly to
Mr. Grosvenor. but it was his subsequent
attack •upon Secretary Morton which
created the sensation. Mr. Dearmond is
a Democrat, an ardent advocate of sil
ver, and therefore his attack on a Dem - |
ocratic cabinet official who had 1» en !
most active on the gold side of the con- j
troversy excited less surprise than it
Otherwise would have done.
It already hud been noised about that
the Missouri number intended to make
an attack on the secretary and the mem
bers eagerly crowded about to hear him.
With biting .sarcasm and rasping irony
lie scored the secretary of agriculture,
taking as his text a recent publication
issued by the secretary and sent out over
the country under a frank, entitled The
Farmer's Interest in Finance. The
pamphlet reviewed the silver agitation,
to show that poverty and Illiteracy char
acterized the states which had been
foremost in the demand for the restora
tion of silver. Mr. Dearmond asserted
that the demand for silver came chiefly
from the farmers, whose interests the
secretary of agriculture was supposed
to look after, and asked contemptuous
ly what excuse there w as for issuing to
them "tills slander, this travesty on
The Republican party is not responsi -
ble for him, int, rposed Mr. W. A. Stone
of Pennsylvania.
"Assured!) not," agreed Mi-. Dear
mond, "and I can understand how grate
ful you are that you are relieved of re
sponsibility." (Laughter, i
He went on to say that there were facts
which some men lost sight of that weri
known to all others, and one of them
was that the illiterate colored vote rep
resented McKinley's majority In most
of the states which he carried. But. he
said, no one took Seen tary Morton seri
ously nowadays. The world was no
longer interested in his vii ws on finance,
although it might look with expectation
for any observations he might make on
the woodchuck, the hedgehog or the ey?
of the potato.
"It was once raid of an eminent states
man," he continued, "that the secre
tary stood alone—that modern degener
acy had not reached him.
"It could, be said of Morton, the sec
retary stood alone; mod m degeneracy
had not passi ,i him."
Addressing the Republican side, he
appealed to them to r< cognize Secretary
■Morton's service, even though they
■refused to acci pt r< spont ihility for him.
"Of court -." he said, "j ,\i will not
keep him in his present position, but you
might put him in the national museum.''
"We will put him in a better place."

"You Intimated that I took unrair ad

Mr. Giosv, nor. "why do yon attack Si. -

"Because," retorted Mr. Dearmor.'l.
after a pause, "I know the gentleman
from Ohio had. contracted a habit 0.
speaking here at least once a day, and
I felt that he could speak for him, if nec
essary." (Renewed laughter.)
In conclusion Mr. Dearmond agn::'.

tion of the Republicans "this curiosity
of modern political life." w hose peculi

Mr. Grosvenor got the floor during 'he
debate on the agricultural bill, an 1
under the latitude allowed, proc,, ded to
Interest the members with a reply to
some remarks of Governor Altgeld's at
a dinner given In the hitter's honor last
week. The loyalty, honor and integrity
of the state of Ohio, he said, demanded
a reply- As tomuchof what Altgeld had
said on that occasion, .Mr. Grosvenor
remarked, his answer would be silence,
but he could not pass over a single para
graph. That paragraph Mr. Grosvenor
had read at the clerk's desk. It called
attention in partial substantiation of the
sweeping assertion that Bryan had bi "it
defrauded of his election, to the fact thai
in Ohio last fall there were cast 300,000
more votes than in IS!*:'. This. AltgeH
said. Indicated 1 an increase of population
of 1,000,000. whereas, he charged, the
Increase had not been more than two
thirds of it. From this he concluded
that (0,000 of the votes were fraudulent.
"1 do not wonder," said Grosvenor.
"that a gentleman who led a victorious
majority in the city of Chicago very re
cently and then was absolutely over
whelm, d in almost all the counties and
voting precincts of Illinois, should se
lect his own slate as an illustration of
'he quality of unfairness which had
been the index of this election."
"Ex-Governor Altgeld is the last per
son, in my judgment, who ought to drag
from the rapidly closing waves of ob
livion the history and detail of the re
rent election. Whatever happened In
Ohio was due to a large number of fac
tors, no one of which was more powerful
and potent to the victory ot the Repub
lican parly in that slate than was the
existence of a leader in the Democratic
party of Governor Altgeld in Illinois.
When all else during the campaign failed
to arouse an outburst of tremendous
enthusiasm It always followed the dec
laration that one of the things we were
aiming at was to purge the fair record
of Illinois of the name ill office of Alt
geld. He it was who in the Chicago con
vention demanded, as was published and
declared everywhere, the Introduction
of those planks of the platform that
arrayed hundreds of thousands of Dem
ocrats, independent of the question of
tariff and of the currency, against the
Denu cratic party. Why, is it not very
strange. Mr. Chairman, that that gentle
man should fed some degree of respon •
slbilty for ihe result and some degree
of soreness as he looks back over the
miserable record in politics which he
himself has made?"
Continuing. Mr. Grosvenor said there
had not been a dishonest election in
Ohio for years, and he gave (he credit
of this to the joint efforts of the lending
men of both political parties.
Mr. Bromwell of Ohio, Republican,
followed in further substantiation of Mr.
Orosvehor's statements. These two
speeches drew a brief but somewhat sar
castic response from Mr. Dearmond.

■ Comptroller ESckell Presents His Views
on Banking Law.
WASHINGTON Jurr 28.—Controller
j Kekels today gave his views upon the
financial condition of the country to
1 the house committee on hanking and
I currency. Several bills had been re
j ferred to Eckels for his judgment, and
Ihe analyzed them. While there was no
■ doubt a n *v-ssity for a change in the
I government's iinar.cial system, Eckels
J said the public was disposed to attrib
ute too much of the existing troubles
to the lack of monetary legislation.
Over-trade, over-production and ex
travagance in private and public ex
j penditures, partly induced by Specula
! tlon, were largely responsible for the
j country's business difficulties. The day

I was Its most Important factor. im
! proved credit was more essential. The
! first essential was stability tn the public
j credit. The apparent reluctance of the
. people of the' United States to redeem
I their public obligations was the chief
j cause of distrust.

j problem of Hi" treasury. The funding
I and cancellation of these obligations,
so that Ihe maintenance of the gold re
solve was no longer necessary, was a
RlOSt desirable policy. Whether it was
the most practical was another question.
So far as a contraction of the currency
was concerned, EJckels did not think it

Over the Action of the Nevada
Unless Governor Sadler Sbuld Decline lo
Sign the Bill
Dan Stuart's Partner Thinks Very
Highly of the Nevada Type of
Official Morality
Associated Preil Special Wire
SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 28.—The pas
sage by the Nevada senate today of the
bill licensing prize fights has given great
joy to local sports and already they have
In prospect battle! between noted pugil
ists of all classes. It Is contended that
the imposition of a tax of $1000 on every
light will have a tendency to discourage
dishonest men from going into the busi
ness of bringing contests and that square
rights will be assured. It is asserted that
Dan Stuart will make his permanent
headquarters in Nevada and will from
time to time arrange contests ebtween
the most noted pugilists of the country.
The sentiment in Nevada seems to be
strongly In favor of the bill. It is cal
culated that the holding ot a big light
in the Sagebrush state will bring thous
ands of dollars Into Nevada. Carson,
Reno and Virginia City, at any one of
which places the tight may b< given, are
only about twelve hours' ride from San
Francisco. Her.o is on the main line
of the Central Pacific and the other two
towns are a short distance from Reno on
branch lines. Governor Sadler has as
yet given no Intimation as to how he will
treat the bill, but it Is thought that the
unanimity of sentiment of Nevada peo
ple in its favor will induce him to sign it.
The bill passed provides that a glove
contest with gloves not lighter than four
ounces may be held in Nevada upon pay
ment to the sheriff of the county in which
the contest is to take place ?1000 for a
license, and the presentation of a cer
tificate from two regular physicians that
the contestants are In perfect physical
health. This shall be done ten hours
previous to the contest. Nine-tenths of
the license money goes Into the state
treasury and the balance to the county
where the contest takes place.
CARSON. Nov.. Jan. L'S—The bill to
permit glove contests passed the senate
this morning by a vote of 9 to 0, and the
town is all excitement in consequence.
The bill was not enrolled in time to be
presented to the governor today, but it
will reach him in the morning.
Ofthe bill YV. H. Wheelock, Dan Stu
art's partner, who has been on the
ground sonic time, said this evening in
response to a question whether or not
the big fight would positively take place
in Nevada if the governor signs the bill:
"I cannot say that the big fight will or
will not take place in Nevada. The bill,
if signed, is satisfactory to me. and 1
presume it will be to Mr. Stuart. lam
sure, should we conclude to bring the
world"s championship contest to this
state, ample protection from any kind
of interference is guaranteed under this
measure. Official morality is of a dif

placed in our way. As I said months ago
I am ready to go thousands of miles to
meet him if the contest can be pulled off.
I shall readily accept any proposition
Stuart may make.
"Nevada is all right if the governor
does not take a notion tn interfere with
the bout. There will be nothing brutal
about it. We both know how to box,
and the better boxer will win But there
will be talk by reformers, and all that
sort of thing, and our meeting may be
prevented. Still I am quite ready to
take as many chances as Corbett does,
and that should satisfy him. I want
four weeks training near the battle

Not So Imminent As It Seemed
to Be
Steps Taken Looking Toward the Re
opening of the Case in Congress.
Committee Action.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 28.—A step to
waid reopening the Pacific railroad
legislation in congress was taken by the
sub-committee of the house committee
on Pacific railroads, which was appoint
ed to c onsider the bill for a commission
to settle the indebtedness of the roads
to tho government. It was decided to
recommend to the full committee the
full bill which was reported In the sen
ate by Senator Gear with amendments
which is practically Mr. Harrison's
plan, and the bill will be reported to the
house if it is agreed upon by the full
committee If it is agreed upon at the
meeting which Chairman Powers today
called for next Saturday.
The corrrmltti .• provided in the bill is
to consist of the secretaries of the treas
ury and interior and the attorney-gen
eral and their successors in office. The
commission is to lee empowered to take
sworn testimony and summon persons
and papers . and in any settlement it
makes must rest rye to congress the
right to regulate- passenger rates.
Two amendments were made by the
sub-committee, one requiring the com
mission to report to congress one year
after the passage of the bill, the other
providing that th" act shall be subject
to amendment or repeal at any time,
shall not impair any rights now existing
in favor of th" tinted States or inter
fere with or supersede any pending pro
ceedings in behalf of the United States
or any other that the president may elect

The second amendment was proposed
by Representative Paterson of Tennes

sissippi offered as a substitute a bill for
a separate settlement of the Sioux City
and Pacific debts.
The Republic an steering committee

Is Almost Ready for Signing and Trans
The Document Will Be Forwarded to
Venezuela b ythe Next Mall
WASHINGTON, Jan. 28.—Senor An
drade. the Venezuelan minister, was in
congference with Secretary Olney for a
half hour today. It Is understood that
the treaty between Venezuela and Great
Britain drawn up under the heads agreed
upon by Secretary Olney and Sir Julian
Pauncefote, is almost completed and
probably will be signed and sent to
Venezuela for the action of the Venez
uelan congress on the next mail steamer,
which leaves New York In a week's time.
While there are small points yet to be
arranged, none of them are of impor
tance save that relating to the person
nel of the commission. It was not In
tel ded at lirst to name the arbitrators in
the treaty, but to provide generally for
th" selection of them from among dis
tinguished jurists of the United States
and Great Britain, leaving to the su
preme courts of the two countries tbe
designation of the individuals, but sub
sequently it was found desirable to
name them. Such delay as has occurred •
In completing the last stages of the ne
gotiations is due, it la gathered from
official soure, s. to the difficulty in select
ing the British arbitrators. From the
aspect of the matter today, however,
there is every reason to believe this will
be arrange,! in the course of a very
few days and that no other obstacle
of importance will be encountered in
concluding the treaty.
Justice Brewer declined either to con
firm or deny the report that he and Chief
Justice Full, r had been appointed on the
Venezuelan arbitration commission. It
is understood the treaty Is not yet sign
ed, and no formal appointment of arbi
trators will be made until that action
hass been performed, but it is Fa Id to be
practically certain that the chief Jus
tice and Brewer have been decided upon
as members.
The Venezuelan congress base been
called to meet in regular session on the
17th of next month. It may be readily
advanced if necessary to meet any time
between that date and the first of Feb
ruary, but as the treaty can hardly ar
rive; at Caracas much before the middle
of the month the is not like
ly to take ailvantage of the permissory
la w.
One of tho greatest obstacles to the
ratification by the senate ot the 1 general
arbitration treaty has been removed in
the arrangement by negotiation of a
plan (or the settlement e>f the- Alaskan
boundary question. I' l tbe course of a
day or two a treaty on the subject will
be laid befo' c the senate for its action.
It provides for the appointment of a
committee -o visit the country and fix

as follows:
"OMAHA. Neb., Jan. 20. 1597.
"Hon. B. H. Johnson. Lincoln. Neb.:
Dear Sir—Replying to yours of the 19th
instant, I w ill say on th. matter of ratio
for the coinage "I" the American product
cf silver, I should prefer the ratio of
1 to 1. Failing in this, the best ratio
that could secure the necessary VOti 8
to enact a law.
"Understand me, however, this is ex
pressly upon the condition lhat our leg
islating shal prlovldß for the coinage
of the silver of the United States only,
and that we are not to admit to our
mints the silver product of any other
country until the natons of the world
are ready to join us in international
bimetallism. Yours truly,
At the conclusion of the reading of
the letter the resolution was adopted
by a party vote.
Sixty-seven members went Into cau
cus, but seven bolted after two ballots,
leaving only sixty. On the first ballot
Turner received 41 votes and on the
second 64. His nomination was then
made unanimous by the 60 members
who remained. As it requires only r,7
votes to elect in joint session. It Is rea
sonably certain that Turner will be
chosen on the first ballot tomorrow.

Successful New Treatment for Rheu
matism and Sprains
Experiments have just been concluded
at a hospital in this city with a new
method of treatment for chronic rh( u
matisni and gout, sprains and other dis
eases of the Joints and muscles, which
have excited great interest In the medical
profession, both In England and Amer
The method is known as the Taller
man-Sheffii M treatment, by the local
application of superheated dry air.
The effect of the treatment Is to give
to the patient In his own house or in a
hospital more beneficial effects and In a
much moie permanent form than those
obtained by visiting various "hot
springs" and other resorts, which are ac
cessible only to the rich.
The apparatus consists of a copper
cylinder of varying;size, according to the
part of the body to be treated. Its ends
are covered with air tight cloth, through
which the limb to be treated passes. Tiie
limb rests on an asbestos frame inside
the cylinder, which does away with all
danger of scorching by the hot metal.
The cylinder rests on a frame under
which is a row of gas jets, and an ar
rangement of valves and stop cocks
provides for drawing off every particle
of moisture in the air resulting from
Ik rsplratlon.
The most remarkable feature of the
apparatus is that it enables the patient
to bear a temperature of 250 to 300 de
grees, which, if the air were moist,
would almost consume the limb. Not
only is there no scalding, but the sensa
tion is positively a pleasant .one, and
patients who have been racked with
pain for months have beern known to fall
into a refreshing sleep while undergo
ing the treatment.
Mr. Tallerman's method was tested
thoroughly for two years in St. Bar
tholomew's hrispital. the Northwest
London hospital. Charing Cross hospital
and St. Mary's hospital in London.. It
was officially adopted by them about
two months ago, and has been recom
mended as the best treatment for joint
affections by Prof. W. J. Walsham of
St. Bartholomew's hospital, who de
clares that he has substituted it for
methods of treatment which he had
been using for fourteen years.

A piano lamp that had been left burning
had exploded and started th* blaze. The
firemen played havoc with the works of
art, and it was two hours before the flro
fire was extinguished.
The art collections of the Hamilton
and Henderson families for six genera

ber of prints, engravings and Dresden,
Minturn, Wedgewood and old English
china that Mr. Henderson collected
during a tour he made in Europe a
short time ago were destroyed.
Mr. Henderson was so prostrated ovef
his loss that he was compelled to placa
