THE HERALD TO BLOCK BUSINESS Unless Committees Are Appointed SIMPSON MAKES DIRE THREAT TO DEMAND A QUORUM EVERY SESSION Senatorial Advice to McKinley Care fully Laid on the Shelf—Action on Sealing Questions Associated Press Special Wire. WASHINGTON, April 9.—Represen tative Simpson of Kansas declares that he will carry Into effect his threat to block any business which the house may attempt to do by unanimous consent be fore the speaker has appointed commit tees. He says he will also call for a quo rum to approve the Journal each time the house meets. There Is no legisla tion for the house In prospect until the tariff or appropriation bills are returned to It by the senate except the smaller matters of routine business, which are to arise and which have been con sidered recently by unanimous consent. Should the additional measures for the relief of the sufferers by the Mississippi floods be brought forward, Mr. Simpson proposes to compel the presence of a quorum and the action of a committee on them or the adoption of a special ru! ■ for their consideration. The Democrats do not Intend to abet Mr. Simpson In his obstructive tactics. FILED AWAY The senate resolution protesting against summary proceedings between the Spanish officials in Cuba against the captive insurgent leader Rivera, has reached the state department through the White House. Senator Sherman re garding It as merely declaratory of the sense of the senate and offered In an ad visory rather than mandatory spirit, has filed It away and Is not likely to carry out Its suggestions and lodge a protest with the Spanish government, particu larly In view of the Information he has received that Rivera Is not to be shot. THE SEAL HERD Charles H. Hamlin, ex-assistant sec retary of the treasury, who has been re tained by the government as counsel to assist In the conduct of the negotiations with Great Britain looking to a perma nent settlement of the Bering sea seal ing question, said today that his posi tion would advisory to ex- Secretary John W. Foster, who will have general direction of the negotiations. Mr. Hamlin will return to Boston tomor row to resume his law practice, but will come to Washington from time to time for consultation with Mr. Foster. The sealing regulations under the Paris award were put into operation In 1894 and were to run five years, or two sea sons longer. The apparent decrease In the number of female seals during the last two or three seasons has reached such proportions that It is feared two more seasons of indiscriminate slaughter by pelagic sealers will have practically destroyed the Industry. The British as well as the American Investigators have reached this conclusion and it Is the pur pose of the United States to bring about a new agreement by which both coun tties shall take active measures to pre serve the seal herds for all time to come. It is expected that Mr. Foster will give his entire time to the question until a final settlement Is reached. VETERANS' PLANS Secretary Bliss Is carrying out the policy of the administration in restoring to the classified government service war veterans who are held to have been im properly removed from office by the last administration. Today he rein stated Captain Henry C. Potter of Ohio to his old position as chief of the mineral division of the land office, and Captain George Redway of California as chief of the accounts division of the general land office. THE TARIFF BILL. The Republican senators who are act ing as a sub-committee of the senate committee on finance In the preparation of the tariff bill, are inclined to postpone the date of the presentation of the bill to the senate a little beyond the limit originally fixed by them. They express the opinion that it may be two weeks from the present time before It will be In shape to be reported. Some of them post pone the time until two weeks from next Monday. The committee Is making very satisfactory progress with the bill, and many of the schedules have received final attention, among them being chem icals and cotton . None of the more puz zling questions, however, have been dis posed of. The committee has deemed it wisest to leave the rates on wool, su gar, hides, wool, lead ore, lumber and all the other Important subjects until th 2 simpler matters can be determined. They take the position that they can set tle the disputed points more satisfac torily after the other features of the bill are thoroughly digested and the probable revenue determined. Many of the smaller Items accordingly have beer, decided upon. While no detailed In formation can be secured, it Is under stood that many reductions in duties have been made. The disposition of tho committee Is to make quite a general re duction, but this is found to be a task not easy of accomplishment, because of tho Insistence of senators upon having the strongest protection of the articles in which they are particularly Interested. There are, Indeed, many demands for in crease, and some of these are so press ing that the members of the committer are finding themselves considerably em barrassed between desire to satisfy sen ators whose vote will be essential to the success of the bill and their conviction LOS ANGELES, SATURDAY MORNING, APRIL 10, 1897 that the Interests of the party demand reduction rather than Increase. COMMITTEE AGREEMENT. The committee representing respective ly the Republican and Democratic sides of the senate resumed their efforts today to reach an agreement on a basis of re organizing the senate committees. The Republicans have gone to work with the serious Intention of taking charge of the committees, but they find that In assuming this task there ar3 many delicate points to be settled. The tariff is giving the managing com mittee and all the Republican senators more concern than any other factor in the situation. It is doubtful whether they would attempt to proceed but for the bill. They fear, however, that If they do not take the work in hand the bill may be seriously delayed, some of the Dem ocrats having practically warned them that they will object to any further leg islation of any character until the com mittees shall be filled. There Is also a feeling upon the Republican side that any allotment which might appear to discriminate invidiously against the Populists and Silver Republicans wouid imperil the tariff bill by precipitating an unseemly wrangle upon the eve of lt:< presentation to the senate. At the conclusion of a three hours' ses sion of the Republican committee Sen ator McMillan said that such satisfac tory progress had been made as to war rant the prediction that reorganization would be accomplished. ONE MORE VOTE Would Have Named Hunter as Ken tucky's Senator LOUISVILLE, Ky., April 9.—lnterest in the senatorial struggle revived today when the Blackburn people again at tempted to break a quorum. They were unsuccessful. The vote was: Hunter, 62; Blackburn, 45; Boyle, 7; Martin, 13; Stone, 1. Present, 128; necessary to a choice, 66. On a motion to adjourn the vote stood 64 to 64, and Speaker Worth lngton cast the deciding vote In favor of another ballot. On the second ballot Representative Baldwin, one of the Republican bolters, made an Impassioned speech and cast his vote for Hunter. This caused the assembly to go w'ld and for a time it looked as If Hunter would be elected. The ballot resulted: Hunter, 63; Black burn, 45; Martin, 13; Boyle, 6; Stone, 1. The general assembly refused to adjourn by a vote of 74 to 64 and a third ballot was ordered. Senator Stege, who bolted Hunter several days ago, stated that If Hunter got another vote he would also vote for him, thus electing him. The Republicans received the announcement with cheers and Hunter was within one vote of the United States senatorship. After the continuing balloting the Joint session adjourned without result. Hunter never gained but the one Re publican vote and was never closer than two votes to an election. QUEEN MAMAE Yields to the French—Tahiti Rebel lion Ended SAN FRANCISCO, April 9.—Advices from Tahiti state that Queen Mamae, who for seven years as ruler of the island of Raiatea, has defied the French, has surrendered and the long stand ing rebellion on the Islands of Raiatea and Haulne has been put down. The French gunboat Aube and the transport Caroline captured the queen and her chief men after a hot fight, in which thirty-six natives were killed and one hundred and six wounded. The French lost one marine killed, while sixteen were wounded. On February 28th the queen and 136 of her subjects were sent Into exile at New Caledonia, the French penal settlement. They were condemned to remain there for life. The' French have left an armed force in charge of the cap tured islands. A Bady Found ST. LOUIS. April 9.—The body found In the Mississippi Thursday has been identied as that of Pauline Bauer, who disappeared last November. Miss Bauer was a telegraph operator. Just before her disappearance she complained of continued annoyance from a young man. When, five months ago, her hat and Jacket were found upon the river bank, the murder theory was suggested and worked ujjon, * rt no clues were found. The body, though bndly decomposed, shows a wound on the skull. Miss Bauer was guardian for her younger brothers and sisters. Her unexplained disap pearance has prevented the administra tion of the estate. Egyptian Sugar NEW ORLEANS, La., April 9.— W. A. Henderson, a capitalist and sugar deal er, has imported the first cargo of Egyp tian sugar direct from Egypt that ever came to this port. It came on the steam er Oswestey of West Hartlepool, Ens land. The sugar consisted of 33,000 bags, or 3100 tons. It came direct from Alex andria and Is classed as "Egyptian crys tals," which Is equal to the best quallty of West India raw sugar. A Steamer Race SAN FRANCISCO, April 9.—The rival steamers Pomona and Humboldt ar rived in port today after one of the most exciting races which has taken place along the coast for years. The opposi tion vessels started from Eureka yester day at about the same hour and raced at full speed on the ocean Journey. The Pomona won the race by eleven minutes, arriving at her dock in fifteen hours and forty-five minutes. Served Bull Butter DAYTON, 0., Aprii 9—Col. J. B. Thomas, governor of the soldiers' home, was arrested, charged with violation of the law by serving oleomargarine at ths Institution without displaying a cart stating that fact. It will be a test case, as It Is a question whether the law can be enforced In the home, which Is a United States reservation. He will have a rehearing on Tuesday. Food for India WASHINGTON, April 9.—ln execu tion of the act of congress authorizing the secretary of the navy to transport contributions for the relief of the suffer ing people in India, Secretary Long has taken steps to procure immediately a ship or steamer from the merchant ma rine. No naval vessel is available for this purpose. ALL WILL BE WELL If the Levees Stand the Strain THE RIVERS FALLING SLOWLY AND PEOPLE BEGIN TO HOPE AGAIN Citizens of the Red River Region De cline Government Aid —South- ern Suffering Increases MEMPHS, April 9.— Notwithstanding the high winds and heavy rainstorms reported from the overflowed Mississippi delta last night, the situation in the flood-stricken district Is certainly no worse, if not better tonight. The water, which has been pouring though five big crevasses for more than a week, is rap idly flowing into the Mississippi again at a point twelve miles north ot Vlcks burg, and Is sweeplngg southward with terrible force. The strain on the Louis iana levees will be something terrific for a week, and If they withstand tha: length of time all will be well. The Su-tlower river Is also on a ram page toi. ght Two-thirds of the water from the Flower lake crevasse is rush ing into this stream and a large area will be Inundated from the overflow. The Tallahatchie and Coldwater rivers ar* gradually falling. At Helena the river Is slowly falling and Indications are that the big stream will continue to decline. The waters be low the Arkansas Midland levee are at a standstill tonight. The number gees Is Increasing at Helena almost hourly. The steamer Maud arrived there late this afternoon with more than 100 flood sufferers, swelling the list there to 3000. At Rosedale nothing of speclaltfnterest has occurred In the situation. After a stormy night that caused buildings to rock and sway like boughs of trees, the sun came out bright and clear la that section today, but a cold north wind Is blowing. In the Bogue Phalia country much suffering is reported. The Rose dale relief committee will visit that sec tion tomorrow and distribute provisions. At Greenville the situation has not changed. All the levees along the Mis sissippi front safely withstand the storm of last night. At Memphis the river continues to fall, a decline of one-tenth of a foot being re ported by the weather bureau tonight The railroads, with one exception, are again open for business and in good shape, and all trains are being run on schedule time. AID DECLINED WASHINGTON. April 9.—The people of the submerged district of the Red River of the North have declined the government aid voted them by congress Wednesday. When the flood came In the Red river a quarter of a million dol lars worth of property was destoryed at Fargo, N. D., and fifty miles of fertile territory Inundated. An appeal to con gress was made through the mayor of Fargo. Yesterday the prospects along the Red river were brighter, and this morning Representative Johnson re ceived the following telegram from the mayor of Fargo:"Have declined aid from congress. The water is receding. The damage Is not so great as expected." RISING AGAIN ST. PALTL, April 9. —The river is on the upgrade again. From midnight to 7 o'clock It rose one-tenth of a foot, and is, stiU goirs up. although slowly. The Rovernivent officials do not view this with any apprehension. WORSE THAN FLOOD MONTGOMERY, Ala., April 9—A special to the Advertiser f n Ozark. Ala., saye: A cyclone passed over a •m tio- of Dale county last night, leav ing wreck and disaster in its path. Many houses were demolished. Mrs. Powers was caught by the falling timbers of her home and died before she could be res cued. The rest of the family were res cued. This was the only fatality re ported. For many miles the farmers are suffering, everything they had naving been swept away by the wind or ruined by the torrents of rain. The citizens of Ozark have sent sev eral wagon loads of supplies to those iv need. AN INDIANA STORM INDIANAPOLIS, April 9.—The heavy rain and enow storm which prevailed from 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon to 10 o'clock today did much damage to tel egraph and telephone wires. It was no: the wind that caused the damage, but the heavy water-laden Enow. It ac cumulated on the poles until either the wires or the poles broke under the weight. Five inches of snow fell, but it is rapidly disappearing. MUCH DAMAGE DONE. ATLANTA, Ga., April 9.—Telegrams from Ozark, Ala., Valdosta Crossing and the 111-fated town of Arlington, Ga., show that this section was visited to day by another gulf cyclone, ascending the Appalatchicola river and sweeping northward with terrific force to the cen fluencc of the Chattahooehle and Flint rivers, where It divided. In one direc tion, toward Ozark, where timbers were uprooted and houses blown to pieces, several lives were lost, among them Mrs. Powers, who was caught beneath the falling timbers of her house and crushed. The other members of the fam ily were rescued, among them a baby 2 weeks old, whom thr mother protected at the loss of her own lite. The sscond section of the cyclone was deflected upon Flint valley, breaking across. South Georgia and passing through Arlington, where but a few weeks ago nine children were killed In the ruins of their school house. Reaching INDEX TO TELEGRAPH NEWS The postal congress will be quarter ed in the old Corcoran Art Gallery building at Washington. Bryan is somewhat bruised by his piazza accident, but makes an address to the Florida legislature. Mrs. Stanford takes out the largest life insurance policy ever written, for the benefit of Stanford university. Of the fifty-two guests in the Hotel Knox only thirty-five can be found after last night's fire; the property loss exceeds $1,600,000. The Burns handicap to be run at Oak land today; six prize fighters maul one another at San Francisco and, unfortunately, all of them are still alive. The Kansas legislative bribery in vestigation finds ample material to work on; all of the officers and most of the members were offered money to influence legislation. The Greek minister for foreign af fairs counsels the chamber of depu ties to preserve European peace; Greek troops on the frontier invade Albania, and fighting is expected all along the frontier. Simpson of Kansas threatens to block legislation until the new com mittees are appointed; the senate's resolution of advice to the president carefully filed away; prompt action to be taken to protect the seal herd. The situation in the flooded re gions shows slight improvement; the rivers are falling, and it is hoped that the worst is over; tied river region people decline government aid, but suffering further south is increas ing. Valdosta, the etorm became Intensified in fury, and trees were blown down in every part. A church In the southern part of the city was wrenched from its foundations and twisted into fragments. The box cars on the plant system were blown off the track. From many other towns in the vicinity reports of an equal ly alarming nature are received. THE JAMESON RAID The Leader Never Claimed Any Gov ernment Backing LONDON, April 9.—The parliament ary committee which Is investigating the Transvaal raid held its sixteenth sitting today. Dr. Jameson arrived with Sir John Willoughby, the military comman der of the raid, and the former was again placed In the witness box. Dr. Jameson, in the course of the pro ceedings, indignantly denied having told the officers that he had the queen's gov ernment at his back, remarking that It would have been Idiotic in him and ab solutely untrue to say so. Sir John Willoughby, In telling his story, said he gathered from his talk 9 with Dr. Jame son that if he succeeded in entering Johannesburg, Lord Rosemead, the gov ernor of Cape Colony and high commis sioner for South Africa, would do the rest. Major Heany, the American, was next examined. He denied that the message he took from the reform committee to Dr. Jameson, asking for a postponement of the latter's action, was submitted to or seen by Cecil Rhodes', as he expected Dr. Jameson would refuse to postpone taking action. Dr. Wolf of the reform committee was the next witness. He said he had wanted Dr. Jameson to ielay action because the people of Johannesburg w ere not ready. Part of their plan was to seize the arse nal at Pretoria and get a supply, which they nee<"°d badly, of arms and ammuni tion. "But," the witness added, "the Boers got wind of the plot." HEAVY INSURANCE Mrs. Stanford Provides for the Uni versity's Future SAN FRANCISCO, April 9.—Mrs. Le land Stanford today signed the contract by which her life Is now Insured for one million dollars. The policy, which is said to be largest ever issued, was written by the Mutual Life Insurance company ot New York. By the terms of the con tract Mrs. Stanford Is to pay an annual premium of $170,000, and upon her death one million dollars will be paid by the company to the Leland Stanford Junior university. Should she live ten years and continue her annual payment of pre miums, the university will receive at her death two millions Instead of one. Draves Estate Settled SAN JOSE, April 9.—Mrs. Mary J. Friend of Phoenix, Ariz., who tiled a con test to the estate of Frank Draves, de ceased, did not appear today and the administrator was ordered to settle the estate and pay the money Into the coun ty treasury.
