THE HERALD DILATORY TACTICS Won't Delay Voting on the Tariff Bill THREE MORE DAYS' DEBATE WILL BE FOLLOWED BY ITS PROMPT PASSAGE The Senate Will Consider Arbitra tion, but the Treaty WiU Not Be Soon Disposed Of Associated Press Special Wire. WASHINGTON, March 28.—Three more days will see the end of the strug gle over the Dlngley tariff bill In the house. The bill will be open for amend ment until 1 oclock on Wednesday, when the debate will close on a two-hours' display, of oratory. The voting will be gin at 3 oclock on that day. So far as known there will be no break In the Republlcan ranks, but at least four of the Democrats will brave the party whip and vote for the bill—three from Louisiana and one from Texas. There is also a probability that one Populist and one Stlverlte will vote for the pros pective measure. Dlngley, who has engineered the biil through the eddy of debate with great skill, will devote his energies to press ing the consideration of the bill forward with the utmost expedition, in order to complete it before the vote Is taken. But the Democrats are pursuing a course which has thus far rendered progress extremely difficult. But fourteen of the 162 pages of the bill were disposed of in the two days of last week. At this rate it would require twenty-one days for the house, sitting seven hours a day, to complete the consideration of the bill under the five-minute rule. If the pres ent tactics of the opposition are persist ed in, it is not improbable that night sessions will be held tomorrow and Tuesday. The policy of the Democrats thus far has been to attack every item, and make it the text for general as saults on the bill. It Is understood that they will make a particularly strong stand against the steel and sugar sched ules. They do not hope to accomplish merits. ine.\ n.tve nmue irusitl laSJ ive.v - stone of thek opposition up to this time and the onjy thing which they really believe they can accomplish Is to se cure a record vote on an amendment such as was offered on Friday, provid ing for the suspension of the duty on any article controlled \f a trust or com bination. They propose to do this, if possible, by a motion to recommit with instructions, after the bill Is reported from the committee of the whole. There seems to be a question, however, wheth er this motion will be entertained under the special order under which the house is operating. The fact that the bill may not be com pleted under the flve-mlnute rule will In no wise interfere with the power ot the ways and means committee to per fect it. Their amendments are In order to any part of the bill at any time, and when it becomes apparent that the bill cannot be completed, Dlngley can as sume charge and clear up all the amend ments he desires to offer. After the tariff bill Is passed on Wednesday the house will probably ad journ, three days at a time, until the appropriation bills are returned to it. If they are amended by the senate, the house will probably accept the oppor tunity offered for talking, and as no In- Jury can be done, It Is likely the leaders will Indulge the members to some ex tent in this regard. IN THE SENATE. The senate will devote Its energies this week to the arbitration treaty, with the vague hope on the part of some of the friends of the instrument of secur ing the final vote on Friday or Saturday. The senate will, early tomorrow, go Into executive session to consider the treaty, If no unforeseen circumstance prevents, and thus afford ample time to complete all speeches on Wednesday, when the voting is to begin on the mis cellaneous amendments. The consid eration of amendments is to continue Thursday, provided new ones are of fered after Wednesday's proceeding*. Later than that day the senate's pro ceedings are not clear. Consent to nam ing a day for vote on the treaty itself is still withheld, and will not be given until the fate of the amendments be comes known. It is surmised that if the Chilton amendment should be accepted the debate on the treaty would soon come to a conclusion.but that If it should be beaten, the consequent discussions would be of Indefinite duration. The appropriation bills are expected to be reported to the senate after the meeting of the committee on appropria tions Tuesday, but they will not be taken up in the senate until the treaty Is disposed of. The bankruptcy bill will also yield precedence to the treaty. The question of organizing the committees continues to press for attention, and may reach a climax during the week. The tariff bill will reach the senate late in the week, and be referred to a com mittee, which, however, has the vari ous schedules under consideration. IN COMMITTEE. WASHING-TON, March 28.—The Re publican members of the ways and means committee were in session sev eral hours today and again tonight, considering amendments to the pending tariff bill. A number of amendments were agreed upon and will be presented in the house by Mr. Dlngley before the vote is-taken on Wednesday. Probably LOS ANGELES, MONDAY MORNING, MARCH 29, 1897 the most Important amendment agreed upon was to make the rates on nursety stock specific on the thousand cuttings instead of uniform ad valorem, as they now are in the bill. The duty on dates was reduced from 1% cents per pound to % cent SUCCESSFUL SEEKERS. WASHINGTON, March 28.-The Post tomorrow will say: A number of Im portant nominations will be sent to the senate today, unless something unfore seen occurs. While the president's Ref lections for several offices are not defi nitely known, it is believed they will Include the following: Ex-Representative Shallenberger, of Pennsylvania, second assistant post master-general; Mr. Baxter, of Elmlra, N. V... third assistant postmaster-gen eral; Thomas Ryan, first assistant sec retary of the interior; O. L. Spaulding, first assistant secretary of the treas ury. President Andrew D. White of Cor nell haa, It Is said, been tendered the German embassy and accepted It. Mr. Charlemagine Tower, of Phila delphia, who was originally namied for the German embassy, will probably be minister to Austria, and ex-Representa tive Draper otf Massachusetts, ambas sador to Italy; ex-Representative H. E. Conger, of lowa, minister to Brazil; Franklin Fort, of New Jersey, solicitor general; Benjamin Butterworth, com missioner of pa/tents, and other ap pointments are said to be on the list. THE WORLD'S WHEAT The Smallest Crop Harvested for Six Tears CHICAGO, March 28.—The Times- Herald's Washington special says: The woTldfs wheat crop for 1896i52,428,393,000 bushels'. This fact will be officially announced by the secretary of agriculture in a re port to be Issued this week. Although the total wheat crop is 118, --000,000 bushels less than in 1895, it is larger than what the earlier es timates have indicated. This is largely due to an increase of 59,000,000 bushels in European Russia, as shown in the final estimates of the oentral statistical bureau over the November estimate of the minister of agriculture of that coun try. The orop for 1896 is the smallest for six years. Regarding the distribution of the wheat crop of the United! states for 1896 the report will state: The in crease In price which began In the fall of 1896 so stimulated sales that many parts of the country are now left with only sufficient for seed. All sections report an exceptionally small percentage on hand, the general average being 20.6 against 26.3 yast year, and showing but 88,000,000 bushels In farmers' hands March 1. Unusually lit ..>.■. -.<■ tl«i oron of 1895 remains;—but 3 per so held a year ago. A larger proportion than usual must be retained fro home consumption. The average percentage so retained is 48.3 against 41.5 last year, when the induce ments to export were weaker. Nevada's Governor Does Not Favor Lottery Schemers CARSON, Nev., March 28.—The town was elated this morning when the papers suggesting the establishment of a lot tery In Nevada arrivedi The proposi tion was discussed here two years ago, but met with dissatisfaction from sll quarters, as It was never fully under stood. An effort to pass a bill through the legislature was made, but was not pushed energetically, and the scheme was retained a secret by its promoters until after the legislative effort failed. Many people expressed their approba tion on the subject today, and said that they would exert every power to en courage such a measure. The report was rife that Governor Sadler would call an extra session of the legislature to consider the matter, and that he had given his promise to Dan Stuart to do so. The governor was questioned this afternoon ,and said that the affair had never been suggested to him. "Would you call an extra session of the legislature If poular clamor demanded it?" he was asked l . "I should not," he retorted, "under any consideration. 1 could not do so in Justice to the people of my state. The expense would be an unnecessary bur den for them to bear, and the agitation .would be simply a matter of small mc ment to me. If they wish any lottery in Nevada they will wait for two years more, when the legislature will meet In regular session. "Personally I know nothing of the Im mediate benefits of a lottery in Carson." A Sailor's Brawl SAN DIEGO, March 28.—During a brawl in Stingaree this evening a sailor of the United States ship Adams, named Nelson, was assailed by two negro boot blacks, one of whom sprang upon him and carved his neck and face in a hor rible manner with a knife. Nelson's wounds are serious but probably not fatal. James Gates, who did the cutting, was arrested. Chinese Free Masons ST. LOUIS, March 28.—Lee Pon, grand recorder of the Chinese Free Masons In America, was burled 1 here today. His obsequies occupied two blocks of St. Louis' streets for several hours, provid ing entertainment for 5000 peopde and scared more horsesi than the police have record of. A Small Land Slide SANTA ORUZ, March 28.—This morn ing there was a slide on the narrow gauge roadi near Rlncon, so that passengers from San Francisco had) to be transfer red. The track was cleared this after noon. It rained hkavlly here last even ing. ST.

Nearly 1000 men are at work on the levees along the ten miles covering Greenville. Five hundred laborers from the planta tions will arrive here tomorrow. The Greenville sawmills are at work today with full forces of men, while bargee are being loaded with lumber and sacks to be sent to weak points. The boats El bridge, Vld'ette, Mayflower, Ruth, Annie Laurie Brown, Chlcotj and Louise Lang ley are being used now almost exclusive ly for transportation of men and ma terial to be used in strengthening the levees. Every energy is being used to prevent a crevasse, with hopes of suc cess. If the weather continues good) it Is believed that the entire line of levees along the Mississippi side, a continuous line of nearly 400 miles, will be made to hold. Several weak places reported! south of Greenville are now under control. ANXIETY INCREASES. VIOKSBURG, Miss., March 28—The day has been one of a*xlety for those de pending upon and protected! by the levees. Orders for sacks and other ma terial have been plentiful. The river here has risen five-tenths since last night and is now 48.6, six Inch es below the highest waten since 1862. The most that can be said Is that the levees are being held on both sides of the river under circumstances little short of desperate. Government bulletins today an nouncing more rains in the upper valleys are most depressing. The supply of sacks here is exhausted and) 50,000 have been sent from New Orleans, M.ORE HOPEFUL., mr J mm , flood situation around Memphiß is un changed. The river is slowly falling, the gague tonight registering 36.3 feet. Many of the refugees are returning to their abandoned homes in Arkansas, and al together the outlook is more encourag ing than at any time since the big flood set In. TRAINS STOPPED. CLEBOURNE, Tex., March 28.—0n account of washouts no trains from the south or east have arrived here today. Rain has fallen in torrents all dby and all streams are swollen. The Santa Fe railroad has several cars of steel rails on Its bridges in this city to prevent them from washing away. It is author itatively stated that 20,000 feet of track Is gone at Valley Mills, two bridges at Kopperl, one at Blum, one at Morgan, | one south of Alvarado and quite a lot of track south of Alvarado and a num | ber of small bridges. The Santa Fe is sending out every available man to re pair damages. The tracks are reported to be all right north of here. RUMORED BREAKS. ROSEDALE, Miss., March 28.—'Ru mors are heard here that a break has occurred In the Issaqueena district, but a confirmation has not been received. The only point along the Mississippi line tonight seriously threatened is at Long wood, fifteen miles south of Green ville, the situation there being regarded as very serious. A TEXAS CYCLONE. AUSTIN, Tex., March 28.—This after- noon at 2 oclock this city and the sur- I rounding country was visited by a tcr ' rif.c cyclone that did great damage to I property. The wind came from the j southwest and blew at about sixty ! miles an hour for nearly twenty min utes, tearing down trees or splitting them asunder with terrific force. Sev eral electric towers were blown, down and quite a number of houses in the residence portion were demolished, and in several cases narrow escapes from death are reported. The new and unoccupied residence of Burt McDonald was blown down, strik ing against the residence of William Vining, knocking in one side of the building. Two little children who were in the room narrowly escaped. The roofs of a number of residences were torn off, and in addition to doing much damage to the state university, the wind blew off the entire roof otf the adjoining dormitory. Inestimable damage was done to the building and tihe property of the 200 students therein, many of whom fled for their lives when the roof was carried away. The roof was carried 100 yards, lighting on and crushing the roof of a cottage in which four people were seated, but none were even injured, though all were entombed by the fall ing debris. A church Just to the north of the university had the entire east side blown in and was unroofed, the wind carrying the roof a block away. The residence of Dr. Graves, immediate ly north of the church, was lifted from Its foundation and twisted completely around and set down in the same place, so badly damaged, however, that none of the doors could be opened to permit the escape of the frightened inmates. The small town of Clarksvllle near this City was swept by the winds and marry horses were killed by flying de bris, while a number of small houses INDEX TO TELEGRAPH NEWS The filibuster Laurada lands the largest cargo of arms ever taken to the Cuba insurgents.

Several were badly maimed, however. With the terrific wind came a driving rain that was little short of a flood and swept everything before it. Persons ar riving an the evening trains bring re ports from the surrounding country toi the effect that the storm was general in this section. The small town of Buda near here was roughly handled by the storm, quite a number of houses be ing blown down and one or two persons killed, though their names are not ob tainable, owing to the fact that most of the telegraph wires are down, and news is very meager. This is the worst storm that has ever visited this section and It has laid waste everything In Its track, but fortunately, so far, the report of deaths resultant are few. This storm was over In an hour and the sun came out as brightly as though nothing ahd happened. AT CALVERT. CORISCANA, Texas, March 28.—News has been received here tonight from Calvert, Texas, that a terrific tornado visited that place this evening and did great damage by way of unroofflng buildings and blowing houses from their foundations. Late details of the storm show that the loss of property will reach into the thou sands. Many fine dwellings were de molished. At Calvert an old lady and were fatally Injured by the collapse of the building which was partially de stroyed by fire, notwithstanding the tor rents of rain which were falling. The loss to property in and around Calvert is estimated at $100,000. Many roofs and chimneys were blown down. People living here for twenty-five years cay they never witnessed such a fearful storm before. All telephone, as well as telegraph lines, were prostrated. A Fort Worth dispatch saye: The rainfall following todiay's storm was the hardest for years. The water Is over the city several feet deep In some places and much damage has been done. No casualties are reported, but advices come In from the suburbs detailing se vere damage to dwellings. The Cotton belt country for miles around is inun dated. The railroads running into this city are completely prostrated. TRAFFIC INTERRUPTED. DALLAS, Tex., March 28.—Texas was visited by a general rain and windstorm today. The rain was general over near ly the whole state, while the wind l seems to have done its worst In the south cen tral portion. Austin and Calvert suf fered most, three fatalities resulting at the latter place. The average fall was one and one-tvalf inches, and as much as three inches In some places. All trains south of Dallas were abandtoned on ac count of washouts. The Santa Fe was the worst sufferer, there being nearly half a dozen washouts between Dallas and Temple. The Missouri, Kansas and Texas abandoned all north and south bound trains on the Dallas division, the track being washed out in several places. The Houston and Texas Central also reports a bridge gone and several wash outs. The Texas Central Is washed out be tween Waco and Cisco in several places, and the Texas Midland bulletined all trains between Greenville and Ennis "Indefinitely late." Every river and stream In north Texas is reported l as being out of its banks. The overflow from a creek at Denton overflowed part of the town to a depth of eighteen feet. Telegraph communi cation with the southern part of the sitate is completely cut off. Galveston and Houston could not be reachediat all, Hearne being the farthest point reached south. Estimates'of the amount of dam age are Impossible. It will be several days before details can be received from the great stretch of country includ ed In the reach of the storm. At Cal vert alone the loss Is over $100,000. At Austin it will reach the same figure. Railroads are also damaged at least $100,000 THE STORM AT 'FRISCO. SAN FRANCISCO, March 28.—The water front is now experiencing its wild est blows of the winter, but so far little damage has been done. The wind of Sunday increased to a gale and the steamers Humboldt and Pomona had the hardest kind of work to make port even after daylight. Several ships were tern from their anchorage in the bay, and carried considerable distance, while small boats lying in the cove be tween the seawall and Black point were 1 smashed about and blown ashore. There was little cessation of the wind today. The average force of the wind at Point Lobos was thirty-six miles an hour, but there were squalls far above this record.

They had been without food and water for four days, and were in a state of ex treme exhaustion, and were bordering on madness. The officers of the Yan aravia. did all in their power for the un happy victims of an ocean horror, and finally learned their story. They say that four boats were launch ed, two containing twenty-nine eich, the third seventeen and the fourth six. Tha boat picked up by the Yanaraiva waa one of the two that took off twenty-nine, but thirteen of these succumbed to ex posure, hunger and thirst, llie laßt the survivors saw of the other boats was on the day the vessel foundered, when they sighted two of them lashed together and empty. For some time af ter the rescue the captain of the Yana raiva kept an officer at the mast head, sweeping the horizon with a glass, in the hope of getting some trace of the other boats, but there was no sign of them. As night was falling rapidly, and the sea and wind were increasing, with mist and rain, the vessel proceeded. Trie second officer of the Ville de St. Nazairre if among the rescued, who will be taken in charge by the French consul at Glasgow, bafh IN PORT. The circumstances Under-which thi rescued boat was picked up by the Yan araiva were the most thrilling. The j captain and third officer, who were or ! the bridge, saw a dark object on the j water several miles away. The steamei 1 was put about and in less than an houi j met the life boat of the Ville de St. Na | zairre. The sea was running rough, bui j the Yanaraiva's crew managed to haul the boat on board. They found to theii j amazement the occupants lying abso- I lutely helpless in the bottom, and twc lof them raving mad. The only signs ol j food was one small tin of biscuits). | Three days passed before the rescued ! men had sufficiently recovered to take solid food. The survivors of the original twenty nine are the second captain, Pierre Nuolal; the second engineer, Germain I Giraud; the third engineer. Prosper Lorezetti; Nicholas Siauvlanelle of i Port Au Prince, Hayti, and twelve sea i men from Martinique, j Second Captain Nuolal says that on | the 6th of March the vessel sprung, a i leak. A violent hurricane blew that night and during the following day. On the morning of the Bth the ship had sunk so low in the water that it was necessary j to take to the boats, although the storm ; was still at Us height. The Ville de ,1 St. Nazairre had a complement of eight [ life boats. The first four launched were dashed against the side of the vessel and crushed to pieces. The other four got clear, but soon parted company. I "Our boat," said the second captain, j "did not ship a drop of water when get ! ting away from the vessel. This was due to the promptness with which ws sheered off. The weather continued very boisterous and the waves sometimee almost swamped us. We kept balling for | our lives with our caps. After a while 1 we rigged a sail and kept the boat run ' r.ing before the wind as well as ws ; could. We were drenched and our suf | ferings were terrible. In spite of every I warning some began to drink salt water. "Several of these went mad and ' Jumped overboard. Those who refrained [ from drinking fared the best. We kept a constant lookout for a sail, but saw j none until the morning of the 12th when jwe sighted a steamer. She was too far | away for us to signal her. We watched with mad anxiety as we saw her steer ing for us. At that moment we had only four inches of free board on tha boat. Every minute I expected sha would go to the bottom. At last the Yanavaira reached us and we were hauled on to the deck." A New State ALBANY, N. V..
