Committee Bates on Hides to Be
WASHINGTON, June 24.—The Repub
lican senators decided in caucus tonight,
by a vote of 22 to 11, to sustain the ac
tion of the finance committee in placing
a duty upon hides, but did not passupou
the question of the amount of the duty
to be Imposed.
The committee was also sustained in
the rate fixed upon Imported wrapper
tobacco. The only other disputed ques
tions considered were watches and
watch Jewels, and upon these the finance
committee was reversed, the house rates
being accepted on watches, and watch
jewels being made free.
The caucus was held in the marble
room of the senate, and was well at
While the discussion was spirited at
times, the meeting was without especial
interest. The greater part of the time
was given to the proposition to fix a
duty on hides. Senator Lodge led the
contest against the action of the finance
committee In taking hides from the free
list, and was seconded by Senators Hoar,
Piatt, Spooner and others, while Sena
tors Nelson, Allison, Warren and Gear
tpoke in favor of the duty.
Mr. Lodge contended that the duty, if
. Imposed, would not be of any conse-
I quence as a revenue item, and that it
would add nothing to the farmer's re
turn on his cattle, while it would have
the effect of greatly injuring the indus
try of leather manufacture, which had
grovVn to immense proportions under the
system of free hides. He said imports
of leather goods amounted to $20,000,000
per annum, and asserted that if a stiff
duty should be imposed the industry
would be greatly checked.
In reply the western senators claimed
a direct benefit to the farmer from the
duty, and asserted that he was as much
entitled to the protection it would give
as were the manufacturers to the as
sistance they would receive from other
The vote was on the general proposi
tion to Impose a duty without regard
to rates. The fixing of these, it was
understood, should be left to the finance
committee, but the expressions were so
general in favor of the ad valorem rather
than the specific system that the com
mittee will probably feel itself instruct

upon. There was also a general ex

WASHINGTON, June 24.—Congress
man Edward Dean Cooke was found
dead in his room at the Cochrane Hotel
this morning, presumably Of heart dis
ease. Cuoke retired about 11 o'clock last
night, apparently in perfect health. At

went to Cooke's room to inquire for him
and found Cooke dead. A physician who
was summoned said that Cooke had ap
parently been dead several hours.
Cooke was a native of lowa and was
48 years old. He was educated in the
public schools of Dutruque, ar.d later
graduated from the Columbian Univer

Were Not Those of a Model Book
keeper by Any Means
SAN FRANCISCO, June 24.—When
the Hoffman inquest was resumed this
morning Coroner Hawkins announced
that he had twenty-four more witnesses
to examine, but expressed! the hope that
it would not take very much more time
of the weary Jurors.
It was shown this morning that al
though Hoffman borrowed $20 from
John Laurer, a teamster, a few minutes
before he met his death, only $5.45 was
found in his pockets when he reached
the Receiving Hospital.
Expert Theodore Kytha created a sen
sation by stating his conviction that the
signature upon the receipt for $9,500 was
genuine; but that he was equally posi
tive that the amount had been raised
from $500 to $9,500.
Other witnesses, business men, testi
fied to the effect that they had spoken
to Hoffman at various times about rac
ing and betting men, and that the de
ceased merchant had expressed sur
prise that his bookkeeper could- afford
to bet as he did.
E. L. Atkinson, one of Figel's agents In
racing ventures, swore that Figel told
him Hoffman's strange remarks before
the fire of 1595. He also related a history
of his connection with Figel on the turf
and stated that Figel's winnings
amounted to about $8000. The biggest
winning the witness ever made for his
principal was $3800 on The Bachelor, but
upon what date he could not remember.
William Taylor, another of Figel's
agents, testified to having purchased
Tempestuous for the bookkeeper and
having placed some bets for him at dif
ferent times. The winnings amounted
to about $2000. Taylor swore that one
night while doing some work for Figel
he smelt something burning and upon
investigation found that some clothing
In the rear of the store was burning.
After extinguishing the blaze he sent
for Hoffman and showed him the place
where the fire had been. Instead of
being excited Hoffman asked him why
he had not let it burn, adding that the
insurance companies paid good prices.
Bad Irrigation Bonds
SAN FRANCISCO, June 24.—The su-
preme court has declared that the issuance
of the bonds of the Central Irrigation dis
trict of Colusa county was void. The ques
tion was brought to the superior court,
which held the issuance valid, but the su-
preme court reversed that judgment upon
the grounds that in the notice given for
the formation of the district, the persons
Interested did not sign the printed notice
of intention to petition the supervisors call
ing for the vote to form the district; also
that the original petition was not signed
by the requisite number of owners of ag
ricultural property whose property- would
be benefited by the formation of an"irrlga
tion tlistrict. The court plainly states that
because the district was not properly
formed it of necessity follows that the is
suance of the bonds is illegal.
RED BLUFF. June 24.— J. K. Johnson
was, by direction of the court acquitted to
day on the charge of forgery, which
originated from Johnson persuading Mrs.
Catherine Stewart, who cannot read, to
sign a note for $350 by representing to her
that the note was a receipt for $30. paid her
by Johnson. Johnson wrote Mrs. Stewart's
name- and she mnde her mark. The court
decided that obtaining.-! signature by fraud
was not forgery. Immediately upon his
discharge Johnson was re-arrested for al
leged grand larceny, being charged with
having stolen a horse in Shasta county,
whither Johnson was taken this atfe-rnoon
by the sheriff.
DENVER, Colo.. June 24.—A special from
Cheyenne, WyO., to the Republican says:

SAN FRANCISCO, June 24 —The pro

Tha Reunion at Nashville Pleases tha
People Who Once Sympathised
With the Lost Cans*
Associated Press Special Wire.
NASHVILLE, Term., June 24.—
Crowds everywhere, blocking sidewalks
and filling' to overflowing every avail
able space along the long line of march,
witnessed the grand parade, the closing
event of the Confederate reunion. One
hundred thousand people saw the pa
rade, consisting of 10,000 people on
horseback, on foot and in carriages,
marching to the musio of brass bands,
drums and fifes, music which years ago
they had heard during fierce war. Noth
ing in the history of Nashville has equal
ed the outpouring; never such a pro
cession, and on the faces of the
lookers-on and some of the bent
figures stepping briskly and proudly
could be seen the suggestion that never
again would there be seen such a parade.
From the starting point, the custom
house, through the center of the aity,
around the public square, out Broad
street to Vanderbllt university, where
the parade broke ranks, a dense mass of
enthusiastic, cheering people greeted
the old soldiers, their generals and the
beautiful women who took part.
General W. H. Jackson of Nashville,
chief marshal, headed the parade, his
staff consisting of distinguished men.
Commander-in-Chief John' B. Gordon
and staff came next with the Savannah
hussars as escort; General Vaughn, the
new major-general of the Tennessee di
vision, each division preceded by spon
sors, maids of honor and invited guests,
beautifully attired in summer costumes.
South Carolina, Mississippi, Florida,
Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Vir
ginia, Arkansas, Missouri, Kentucky,
Maryland, Indian Territory, New York,
Illinois, North- Carolina, Texas, Okla
homa, West Virginia, District of Colum
bia, all had veterans in line.
The Sons of Confederate Veterans
marched and were commanded by Rob
ert J. Smythe of Charleston, newly
elected. The Daughters of the Confed
eracy were present In large numbers,
and rode in carriages. Gen. W. B. Bate,
General Joseph Wheeler, General S. B.
Buckner were In carriages at the head
of the Tennessee division. General A. P.
Stewart, General M. B. Butler, Mrs. S.
B. Buckner and Mrs. W ,B. Bate pre
ceded them In- carriages. Judge Rea
gan and Genenal Johm Ford rod© with
the Texas division. Mrs. A. P. Stewart,
Robert E. Dee and John, Hood- aroused
continuous cheers. General Stephen
D. Dee was easily recognised. With
their respective divisions, the command
ing officers from each state rode by, and'
as they were recognized shouts went up,
and as little bands marched along bear
ing tattered flags inscribed with the
names of bloody battlefields a mighty
roar ascended. From the time the
South Carolina troops, bearing palmetto
branches, began to move to the music of
"Dixie" all down> the line- until the Ten
nessee troops passed the stand -where
General Gordon for an hour and a half
saluted the passing hosts, the air was
rent with cheer®, with roars, with drum
beats, bugle blasts and music by bands.
And though at noon two rainstorms
drenched spectators and- veterans, tem
porarily disorganizing the parade,
through it all veterans, sponsors', maids
of honor, general an 9 privates- stood to
their posts, and when the storm had
passed resumed the line of march. Af
ter passing the reviewing stand the pa
rade was dismissed.
Though the rainstorms had bedrag
gled the flags and banners, drenched the
paraders and made limp the costumes of
the ladles, enthusiasm was r.ot dampen
ed, and in a short time the streets were
again, thronged, and of the countless
thousands the major portion thronged
to the auditorium to listen to speeches
and witness the closing exercises of the
afternoon and evening. From the dis
missal of the participants in the parade
until late this evening the tide of travel
was toward the exposition, where the
final exercises of the United Confed
erate Veterans were held. Each state
was represented In the Jubilee by dele
gates, their friends and a speaker se
lected for thejoccasion.
Capt. J. B. O'Brien presided. Among
the speakers were men from every state,
and so great was the enthusiasm and so
insistent the vast audience which packed
the huge, .auditorium that it was after
six oelock before the last 6peech was
made ,and tihe note of melody floated out.
Tonight the same vast throng wit
nessed fireworks prepared for the occa
sion, and listened to the rendering of an
other "Southern Program'" by Innes'
While old Confederate flags, regi
mental fl a gsi, tattered and torn, appeared
in the decoration* and in the parade,
very prominent at every turn was the
star span.gled banner, and In the pa
rade the national standard was se.en in
every division. It was the unanimous
verdict of the veterans and their visit
ing friends that the reunion is the most

CHICAGO, June 24.—The Post today
says: According to a story which has
reached Chicago from Paris, via Wash
ington, the terrible holocaust which
wiped out over 100 lives at the French
capital May 4th, was the work of an
archists thirsting for revenge on the
upper classes of France. It is claimed
that while the official inquiry Into the
circumstances surrounding the catas
trophe threw llttlte light on the cause
of the fire, the secret service department
Is working on a clue that points to an
anarchist conspiracy of stupendous
magnitude. A member of the French
legation at Washington is said) to be
authority for the story.
WASHINGTON, June 24.—The offi
cials of the French embassy here refuse
to Impart information concerning any
connection that the anarchists may
have had with the holocaust. Mr. Le
Falvre, the first secretary of the em
bassy, said tonight that there had been
no communication received from his gov
ernment looking to the apprehension of
the alleged leaders of the outrage, who,
it Is said, have fled to America. This,
he thinks, would have been the case had
it been believed such persons were en
gaged In the affair and had fled to this
country. Mr. Le Falvre was tn Paris
at the time of the disaster and remained
there for several days. Immediately
afterward* there were Intimations In
some of the newspapers attributing the
catastrophe to anarchistic sources, but
publications of that character soon
ceased. Newspapers that have since
come to hand conveyed the impression
that the opinion that anarchists had
been at the bottom of the affair was in
consistent with the real facts in the
case, which, according to investigations,
showed that the fire was due to accident.
SAN FRANCISCO, June 24.—1n the
United States circuit court today Judge
Morrow rendered a decision in the case
of Samuel Montague & Co. vs. the Pa
cific bank, ordering judgment for the
plaintiffs' as prayed for. Montague &
Co.. London bankers, cabled the Pacific
bank on June 20, 1893, to pay by telegram
$5000 to the Puget Sound National bank
of Seattle, and the same day remitted
that amount to the credit of the Pacific
hank to the National Bank of Commerce,
New York. Two days later the Pacific
bank failed, and the amount has never
been remitted. The court holds that as
this money was a special deposit and
the Pacific bank merely acted as agent,
the money does not belong to the cred
itors of the defunct bank and must be
