With a Roar of Cheers —Many
Associated Press Special Wire.
NEW YORK, July s.—lndependence
Day was celebrated by Tammany Hall

The usual supply of refreshments was
not dispensed from the basement.
Among the letters of regret that were
read was one from Grover Cleveland and
another from W. J. Bryan.
When the letter from Grover Cleve
land was read his name was greeted
with hisses. It was said that a delega
tion from the Progressive Democratic
league was present to hiss all the gold
men. Bryan's letter was loudly cheered.
Ex-Senator D. B. Hill, pleading a pre
vious engagement to speak at Oswego,
sent a letter of regret, in which he said:
"I have but one practical suggestion to
make at this crisis. The Republican
managers*, in permitting Greater New
York, expected to make it a Republican
city; otherwise it would not have been
created. Democratic division will fill
their expectations. Democratic unity
will disappoint them. The course of the
Democracy is plain. Let us disappoint

with a lighted cigar gave Madison coun

with his lighted cigar. The gas Ignited.
The flames shot forty feet into the air

rick was burned down in a minute.
There were no valves on the casings
and there is no way to shut off the gas.
All methods known., except the cannon
snuffing, have been tried, but the pres
sure is too strong. The cannon will be
used tomorrow. A ball will be fired
across the casing. It will blow out In
stantly. This is only used in extreme
cases. The outfit is gone and much ad
jacent property Is damaged.

injured people as a result of the Fourth

A HORRIBLE DEATH
SAN FRANCISCO, July s.—There was
a fatal accident at the city fireworks dis
play at the end of Haight street tonight.
Edward J. Matthews, 22 years old, a
driver for the Delong Brothers' dairy
on McAllister street, while watching the
display, was instantly killed by the ex
plosion of a mortar, and his companion,
Miss Hildenberg, was badly lacerated
on the face, and receiving a shock to
her system which the doctors say may
affect her mind.
A battery of mortars which had been
placed on the lot near Clayton street wasi
to be fired, and two employes, Will Mar
tin and Voller, set fire to the fuses of the
battery. Without a single warning
one of the 36-inch mortars exploded, and
the death-dealing fragjnents of iron
were hurled in all directions. By a
strange fatality the two men who were
engaged in setting Are to the mortars
were uninjured while the unfortunate
young Matthews, who was standing
fully fifty feet away, in the middle of
Clayton street, was struck on the fore
head by a piece of the flying iron, and
the whole top of his head was carried
away. Death was instantaneous.
Miss Hildenberg, who was on the arm
of the unfortunate man, was badly cut
on the face, and when the police ran to
her assistance she presented a fearful
sight. The brains of her companion cov
ered her from head to foot, and mingled
with the blood which flowed from the
severe wounds which she had sustained.

Associated Press Special Wire.
CHICAGO, July 5.—A special to the
Times-Herald from Washington says:
President McKinley has sent a dispatch
to the Marquis of Salisbury, the British
Premier and Secretary of State for For
eign Affairs, which will probably cause
that nobleman as much perturbation of
spirit as did Secretary Olney's dispatch
of July 20, 1895, In which England was
diplomatically but firmly told that ehe
must arbitrate the Venezuela boundary
The present dispatch will doubtless be
regarded in England as offensive in
tone and manner and its publication will
probably cause a display of feeling
across the water, but in the United
States Mr. McKlnley's course will doubt
less be warmly approved.
The latest diplomatic fencing between
the two countries arises out of the long
standing fur seal controversy. It will
be remembered that after this country
had asserted exclusive Jurisdiction to
the waters of Bering Sea and Great
Britain had resisted this contention the
matter was referred to a tribunal of ar
bitration which sat in Paris. That
tribunal decided against the United
States so far as it related to its conten
tion of exclusive Jurisdiction, decided
that certain seizures of British sealers
made by the American patrol fleet were
illegal and awarded damages to
owners of those vessels, the amount to
be determined later by sufficient proof,
and made certain regulations for the
preservation of seal herds and the pre
vention of illegal sealing which were to
be Jointly enforced by the United States
and Great Britain. The United States
on its part proceeded in the fullest spirit
and letter of the law to prevent pelagic
sealing, but England, It is aserted, has
not lived up to its agreement and inti
mation to that effect is now conveyed
to the British Government by order of
President McKinley. In the course of
a few days, perhaps early this week, the
President will transmit to Congress a
batch of correspondence bearing on this
question which has recently nassed be
tween the two governments. The cor
respondence is somewhat voluminous,
the most important dispatch bearing
date of May 10th, last, and being in the
form of an instruction from Secretary of
State Sherman to Col. John Hay, our
ambassador In London, a copy'of which
Col. Hay was directed to leave with
In this instruction, which covers six
or eight pages of the usual State De
partment size, the efforts made by the
United States and Great Britain to car
ry out the terms of the Paris award
are reviewed at length and while it is
claimed that this country has lived up
to the terms of the findings of that
tribunal, the insinuation is made that
Great Britain has been guilty of bad
The dispatch is nominally signed by
Mr. Sherman as Secretary of State, but
as a matter of fact It is the joint work
of ex-Secretary of State John W. Fos
ter, the special seal ambassador, and
ex-Assistant Secretary of the Treasury
Charles S. Hamlin, the special seal
commissioner. It received the sanction
and approval of President McKinley be
fore It was permitted to leave the State
Although the dispatch was received
by Lord Salisbury early in May, with
the exception of a formal acknowledg
ment of its receipt no answer has yet
been made by the Foreign Office.
LONDON, July s.—The statements of
the Washington correspondent of the
Daily Chronicle to the effect that corre
spondence is about to be submitted to
congress regarding Bering sea matters
which will cause resentment In Great
Britain charging bad faith In carry
ing out of the terms of the award, etc.,
are discredited here In diplomatic circles.
Previous to the jubilee celebrations
United States Ambassador Hay gave
the Marquis of Salisbury a strong pre
sentation of the case from the stand
point of the United States, but it is
added throughout the entire correspond
ence there was nothing to offend Great
Britain and there have been no com
munications on the subject since the
It is understood the Canadian premier,
Sir Wilfred Laurler. has conferred with
the British government on the seal ques
tion. The interests of Canada are op
posed to restrictions being placed on
sealing, and ac Great Britain is now
cultivating the good will of her colonies
this policy may render it more difficult
for the United States to secure an agree
ment on the subject.
NO CHANGE OF POLICY
WASHINGTON, July s.—The fact
that the state department is prepar
ing for transmission to congress the cor
respondence that it has had since the
Bering sea seal fisheries appears to have
been construed in some quarters and by
the London Chroncile as an Indication
of a purpose on the part of our govern
ment to make a radical change in its
policy in the treatment of that long
standing diplomatic issue, and to seize
on this opposition to announce its adop
tion of a "bold American policy." The
truth is that this particular correspond
ence was called for by congress weeks
ago and has been delayed in transmis
sion principally because Mr. Foster, who

Theatened complications with Eng
land over the sealing question are
possible chiefly in the imagination of
correspondents. The United States
government shows no tendency to
jingoism and intends to make no
change in Its policy regarding the
long discussed question of. seal pro
conducted the greater part of it, in con
junction with Mr. Hamlin, was absent
in Europe. Now, however, it is in shape
and probably will go to congress this
week. It can be stated that it will not
show any change In the policy of this
government, which has ever since the
first year's experience after the Paris
award regulations showed the ineffi
cacy of those regulations to protect tl a
seals, lost no opportunity to urge an
extension of the rules upon Great Brit
ain. This has been done courteously
at all times and Great Britain has re
sponded in like spirit though, to the re
gret of our government, without con
senting to the modifications desired.
There have been some remonstrances
exchanged; for instance, the British
have protested against what they
termed the abuse of the right of search
on the part of our patrol vessels and on
our part the British have been told that
their refusal to permit the sealing up
of firearms carried by sealers amounted
to an evasion of the spirit of the Paris
award. But in all this there has beer
no exhibition of ill feeling or anything
like jingoism on our part, and while
the recent success of Mr. Poster in se
curing the adhesion of Russia to the ex
tension of the regulations over the en
tire North Pacific ocean beyond the
fortieth degree has strengthened our
positions in the British negotiations, it
cannot be said that there has been any
change in the line of policy that wae laid

Till Somebody Gets Tired
CANT REACH AN AGREEMENT
ON THE TIME FOB THE FINAL
Many Tariff Amendments Proposed
and Voted Down, but a Stamp
Tax Will Be Imposed,
Associated Press Special Wire.
WASHINGTON, July s.—Senator Al
lison, in charge of the tariff bin, an
nounced shortly before the adjournment
of the senate tonight that as no agree
ment had been reached for a final vote
on the tariff bill he would ask the senate
to remain in session tomorrow night at
least until the bill was reported from th*
committee of the whole of the senate.
This promises a test of endurance unless
the opposition to the bill gives way. Al
lison's statement was made after an
other futile effort to have a time fixed,
for the vote.
In some respects the senate made good
progress today, disposing of two amend
ments, that placing a stamp tax being
agreed to with little or no opposition and
without the formality of a vote, while
the Spooner amendment proposing a
tariff investigation was withdrawn.after
a protracted struggle. The amendment
agreed to fixed the following rates on
bonds, etc.: Bonds, debentures or cer
tificates of indebtedness Issued after
September 15, 1897, by any association,
company, corporation, on each $100 of
face value or fraction thereof, 6 cents;
and on each original issue, whether an
organization or reorganization of cer
tiiicates of stock by any such associa
tion, company or corporation on each
$100 of face value or fraction thereof, 5
cents; and on all transfers of shares of
certificates of stock in any association,
company or corporation on each $100 of
face value or fraction thereof, 2 cents.
Exemptions from the stamp tax are
made in the case of state, county or mu
nicipal bonds and the stocks and bonds
of co-operative building associations.
Late in the day several other amend
ments from Individual senators were
voted on. One by Man tie of Montana re
ducing the internal revenue tax on dis
tilled spirits to 70 cents per gallon was
defeated, 23 to 41.
An amendmei t by Mills of Texas, pro
posing a tax of 5 per cent on manufac
tured products, the proceeds to go to
ward reducing the bonded debt, was re
jected, 19 to 38. Also an amendment by
Mills, granting 20 per cent reduction in
duties to those countries admitting gold
and silver to their mints at the rate of
sixteen to one; yeas 16, nays 31. On
this vote Carter voted with the Demo
crats, Populists and Silver Republicans
in the affirmative, and two Democrats,
Caffery and Gray, voted with the Re
publicans in the negative. Mills moved
to amend paragraph 395 by striking out
"books of all kinds," his purpose being
to place books on the free list. Reject
ed, 18 to 28. An effort by Mills to have
the Bible admitted free wasdefeated.
A new paragraph was Inserted In the
free list: Wafers for sacramental use,
or for covering or holding pharmaceu
A legal discussion ensued as to the
legality of the provision that un
stamped bonds, etc., "shall be utterly
void and shall not be used in evidence."
The stamp amendment as a whole was
finally agreed to In a viva voce vote, no
call for an aye and no vote being made.
The "no" response was light and came
from the Democratic side.
Mr. Allison proposed the amendment
heretofore offered by Mr. Spooner for a
tariff inquiry by three members of tha
board of appraisers.
Mr. Teller took occasion in this con
nection to criticise the committee for
first transforming the house bill and
then going back in substance to the)
house rates. He had tried to learn what
amount of revenue the bill would yield
and he said he would be glad to have
the chairman, Mr. Allison, throw some
light on that subject. This brought
Mr. Allison to his feet for the first defi
nite statement as to the revenue ex
pected to be derived. He said it was
not possible for any expert to make ex
act calculations on the amount of rev
enue the tariff bill would yield. It had
never been done and never would be.
But from the best information, pro
ceeded Mr. Allison. "I believe this bill
will yield $175,000,000 to $150,000,000 the)
first year, from July 1, 1897, to July 1,
He said the schedules had been gonsi
over at any stage, as successive changes
were made, and he felt that this estimate)
could be safely made. It applied only to
the first year, after which there would
be a much larger yield of revenue.
"How much the second year?" queried
"It depends," answered Mr. Allison,
"but I will say something over $200,000,
"How much over the present law?*'
asked Mr. Stewart.
"About $60,000,000," replied Mr. AIIU
eon, "but it will depend upon the condi
tion of our industries. It is not possible
to make more than a general estimate."
Mr. Vest remarked that the average)
ad valorem of the bill would be much
higher than that for the existing law,
the McKinley ad valorem being 49 per
cent, the existing law 39 cents, while the
estimate of the house bill was 57 per
Allison said the average ad valorem ot
the bill In its final form would be in the
neighborhood of 50 per cent.
Teller of Colorado again got the floor
at this point. He criticised the\esti
mate of the amount of revenue the bIU
would produce, which had been offered
by the majority. He ridiculed Ding-ley's
estimate, and referred to the admission
